    We hold our stuff until the last,
Then try to rush it through so fast
The printer gets snowed under,
But still we camp upon his trail,
And prod him on with woeful tale, «
Or rant and roar like thunder.
He shoots it through, the proof we get.—
Hell's bells! the job is not right yet. i
We chop that proof to splinters.
It takes two days before he knows
Just what each hieroglyphic shows—
A dumb lot are those printers.
The job's delivered. Some relief!

We ought to thank the printer.
But no! The poor gink's out of luck—
He overcharged us one whole buck.
Once more we damn the printer.

Manila, P. 1.—The recent battle In
the Island of Luzon,
between several hundred religious fa.
naties known as Calorums and an
armed force of the Philippine con-
stabulary caused little surprise to per-

Head Hunting Negligible.
Among the wild tribes, perhaps the |
most overrated for flerceness are the
so called head hunters. It Is doubt-
ful whether there have been twenty
heads actually hunted in the islands
in the last twenty years. The tribes

Forty-three Distinct Tribes.
To deal with them is often dif
cult, partly because of geographical
reasons. Adequate policing is almost
impossible in an archipelago of more
than 7,000 islands, some of which are
almost as large as New York state
and others mere barren rocks jutting
out of the sea. Large areas are jun
gle and mountainous—almost inacces
sible to a punitive expedition and al
ways fraught with the danger of am

The “Difficult” Tribesmen.
The natives believed the prophecy.
They slaved and saved and sold and
turned all the profit into the coffers
of the priests and leaders. When au- |
thorities sent an armed force to break
up the scheme severe fighting followed
and a number of lives were lost.
The general bellef that the Moros, |
the Mohammedans of the southern |
{slands of the Philippine group, are
the most difficult tribesmen to deal
with is not entirely warranted. True,
they are hardier warriors, more cour-
ageous and intelligent than the other
so called “wild tribes.” But the Moros
are becoming educated, while it is next

Much of the bad name associated

When the Natalie was suddenly

Any housewife in America, even of most moderate
means, can draw upon the resources of all the world for
her own private use!
You may study and enjoy outright at very small
expense, music—drama—art in all its forms. You
may review the smartest styles each day as they appear
in the pages of newspapers. You may select household
furnishings, modern conveniences, heat-units, refriger-
ation, food in luxurious and endless variety, cosmetics,
dress-goods, automobiles, anything in fact that is com-
monly looked upon as part of the American scene—you
may select these things leisurely and conveniently by
merely studying the advertisements that appear daily,
weekly and monthly in the papers and magazines that
come into your home.
