PEOPLE OF, CURIOUS CUSTOMS; READY FdR IMMEDIATE USE Laplander*-Live, In Primitive Style,' .Holder Makes Sure Thai String, Scis- Following-Their Own Ideas of j \ sors and Paste Are on Hand Comfortfand Recreation. ' When They Are Wanted. "TCTxile civilized man suffers intensely from cold feet every winter, the Laplander, living in tie far north, of Europe, has no such troubled A traveler -writes: "Their boots are also made of reindeer skin, and. are ·worn, very large and the toes are pointed and curve upward, so as to be easily slipped into their ski. The Lapp usually fills his boots balf full -with, a pe-" culiar green grass, into - which, ne- thrusts his naked foot; he then packs" the boots full with more grass, racks the- ends of ills trousers inside and binds, them tightly round with many turns of a brightly woven braid. 'iVIth. these precautions they never suffer from cold feet, and chilblains, corns or such like civilized complaints are- an unknown horror to them." Concerning other customs the same ·writer says: "The Lapps are essentially s. nomadic race, and spend most of their lives wandering fancy free among the wild and glorious scenery of their nothera home. However, at times no doubt the stillness of the frozen mountains becomes EDO still and they turn their herds and start toward their nearest meeting place. Twice a year they hold these general gatherings--at Easter and midsummer-when they congregate and hold a general fair. It is OE these occasions that they celebrate their weddings and funerals. The revelries last only about ten cays, but many marriages take place between couples who perhaps have never met previously. "As soon as a Lapp can aSord to buy enough reindeer for himself he leaves the parental tent, takes a wife and roams away wherever his heart or reindeer dictates. There are no social cisunctiyns in Lapland. Should a, man have no reindeer, or possibly have lost what he had, he travels with a rich man and helps him tend the herd, but he lives and fe-ds with them is the same tens, and Is quite on a social equality, until he can afford to start oZ with his On~n herd." String, scissors and paste are threo j things that are often required at th same time and are seldom at hand ', when they are wanted. It is therefore-, well worth while to make a neat little receptacle for them in which they I way be placed and kept together. Our j sketch shows a handy little article for { this purpose made with the aid of an ) old cigar box. j In making IE a bos of a suitable size must be selected and the !iJ re- i. moved, 2s it will not be require;:, and; the box afterwards thoroughly cleaned i both, inside and out.

In Persia one or the chief occupations is farming, but It is carried on in such a manner that it can hardly be called such. If tie Persian -- ould follow the example of our --estem farmer his country might be very fertile, but he pays little attention to irrigation and cultivates the -soil In the crudest way imaginable. This crudity conies from two causes--poor implements End natural indolence. The Persian plow is a crooked beam of wood frith, a bit of iron at the end-- It is just such, a plo-sr, docbiless, as the "ancestors of Abraham used in the plains of Heso- potaraia. It stirs the soil to tie depth of only an inch or two. Persian indolence is well illustrated by the fact that in hoeing one man holds tie hoe while another pulls it tip arid down by means of a rope.
