Aside from wnrtike considerations, people .have become so accustomed to .beliigftsafe that It is something of a shock to* .learn- thnt only n ' f e w hun- 'iJreid .miles', from the centers of Amer- lcaii;chitlire.there is an almost Bavase country. Th" islands of the West ladies are, as a rule, the abodes of enlightenment where any one, man or woman, -may truvtji without fear of molestation. "Hue such Is not the case In Haiti,'- snys A. Hyntt Verrlll In "The Book of the West males." "Here the shortcomings, the failures, the savage instincts of the blacks have bc«n fed and fostered for centuries. From untamed jungles they wore brought'in reeking, pestrrldden slave ships .to serve beneath the lash. Debased, untaught, they rose, an'd in a resistless waveYof black swept the dominating whites from the land. Then were loosened all the pent-up hatred,- the undying lust for revenge, the suppressed savagery of the African races,, and slaughter, rapine, incendiarism, torture and debauchery stalked naked through.the stricken^ land." Haiti has . improved . considerably since then, but there Is yet much room for improvement; . "The. only .wonder is that any vestige of civilization remains, that there is the.semblance of nile, of industry, of order In the republic." Among the barbarisms now prevalent- In Haiti arc voodoolsm and obeah, the former a kind. of devil worship, nnd tlio latter a form of witchcraft. "In its most · fanatical form voodooiam requires humnn sacrifices, which are accompanied by cntt- niballstic feasts and unspeakable orgies. . . . Obeah, on the other hand, is merely witchcraft with no religious significonce whatever, anil in its most malignant form consists of poisoning with devilish ingenuity, and in tts commonest and least .virulent form amounts merely to a lot of nonsense, hocns-pocos and nmramery." Pechin. Indiana Best Walkers. When It,cornea to feet,civilized man lias a thing or two to learn from the ,dO(f eating Jgorrote or the pigeon toed ,'AmericairIndian, says Prol. L. J. Richardson, in a bulletin entitled "The Soldier ou Foot,", and issued by the University of .California. Becoming a patron of the long abused'pigeon toed man Professor Richardson', says Umt the normal gnlt of man is exemplified by the American Indian, who welts with his feet set par- uilel or even with the toes turned .slightly Inward. In this way all the t£es function and the lifting and pro- pelling.power of the foot Is at its maxl- ·munvhe saya. - . While deploring the army regulations requiring a soldier to stand with his toes turned out at an angle of .aboot .45 degrees, because of the £eo- dency to cause everslou of the- foot and weakness..of the posterior arch, Professor RIchurtison Is aufllciently optimistic for civilized man to conclude that in spite of the Inherited and acquired bad habits he can reform and "learn to walk" with fair results. Walking in tight shoes generation, aftor generation is the cause of nearly all the foot troubles of civilized man, the professor says. This condition, he says, has left but a single strong toe on either foot, the others being In tome measure atrophied. 'Frequent washing, trimming the toe nails and an avoidance of change from high to low heeled shoes are suggested as a - mcauc of obviating much foot trouble. PECHIN, July. 3.V-J. B.
