It  is doubtful, indeed, if they were of  tne same-peoDlo, for their customs,  habits,    racial " peculiarities    and  characteristics allied  them to the  Maori races of the Pacific islands.  Sir William Hunter, in his chapter  on  the  "Son-Aryan  Eaces," describes   the   Andaman,  or  "dog-  faced man-eaters"  of India as a  fragment of the. human race  that  had reached   tho  lowest   possible  depths   of   hopeless   degradation.  After the Andanians he "classed the  Leaf-Wearers of Wissa. Dr. Kane,  the Arctic explorer, thought it was  not possible for human  beings to  fall lower in -degeneracy than the  fugitive Eskimos, the Ka-Kaaks,  whom he met'^at  Godsend Ledge,  where his ship was ice-locked, and  where 57  of his dogs went mad  from the cold and died.  They were  foul and filthy, and  when  he fed  them raw meat and  blubber, each  slept after eating,  his  raw  chunk  lying  beside  him   on  the "buffalo  skin, and, as  he  awoke,   his  first  act was to cat and next to sleep  again.    They did not lie down but  slumbered away in' a sitting pos-  [ ttire with the head resting  on the  breast.    These .savages were compelled by the intense cold to clothe  themselves and  construct  protections,   but   the    Digger    Indians  roamed completely naked, had no  huts of any kind, and  indulged in  poroniac aiid' sexual indecieneies  pitiful in their destructful  results.  The "noble savage" of  Dry den  and Cooper is all  right  in  poetry  Without fixed abodes they  roamed the country, in search of  food, supporting life on snakes,  roasted grasshoppers, the fruit, in  season, of the cactus, the pithaya,  and roots dug up along the dried  streams, and from which' custom  they were called the Digger Indians. Their" ancestors had almost exterminated the larger game  of the peninsula,the deer aud antelope, the big horn and ibex. They  tracked the flight of buzzards with  greedy eyes, and followed to share  with -them the putrefying bodies  of 'animals dead from disease or  killed by pumas or mountain lions.  'When'animal food was found or  captured, such as a hare"'or jack-  rabbit, they attached a small morsel to a cord and after swallowing  drew it out again in a few minutes  aud passed the half digested mass  to another, who repeated the pro  cess. Other'articles used as food  Cc'innot be described'iu magazine or  newspaper. Yet they were not  canibals, and in ^abstaining from  human flesh formed a striking contrast to the Aztecs, of Mexico Oily,  who relished human_ llesh, salted  and cut up-.the bodies of prisoners,  and sold the meat, at,the public  markets; They were a people  without law or tribal rules or gov-,  eminent of any kind, were more  gregarious than social, and in their  extremity of hunger stupefied  themselves with the fumes of wild  tobacco. Otondo's colonists charged  them with ignorance, ingratitude,  inconstancy, and laziness, and said  they were the lowest of human  beings. . The Jesuit fathers wrote  more kindly of them, but then we  must remember that from the day  tho Jesuits began their first mission among them the Digger Indians became their spiritual children.. Morality, decency and honor,  of course, were dead long before  the coming of the fathers. This  was the land and these the people  to whom in their awful -abandonment and unspeakable degeneracy  the Christian 'priests brought the  gospel of salvation and the hope of  resurrection in this life and the  life to come.'  9 U  That the Most Delicious Tea in the World  Willie���������Did y'ou ever see a fish  jump out of the water, papa ?

History Will Repeat Itself.  Cobalt mines are capitalized now  at a milion dollars for every day in  the year. There total capitalization up to date is more than $370  000,000. And tho end is not yob  by any means. For the whole  year of liiO.'i there capital was  825,000 : for the first three months  of 1907 the incaease alone was over  $108,000,000. This enormous capitalization bodes no good to investors.  There must of necessity ho considered wildcatting, just as there  was in this camp in tho. boom days  and the result will bo a similar  callapse, in which shareholders will  find themselves with thousands of  shares loft on their hands which  will not have a market value of  more than a mill each. History  will repeat itself, and there will be  thousands with regrets that they  ever bought a share of Cobalt mining stock. It will give mining another black eye, which will take it  a long time to recover from, Rostand Miner.  A Marrying; 'Squire  Benjamin T. Nixon, of JeM'erson-  ville, Ind., is known as the "marrying squire" for the very good  reason that he has united in matrimony no fewer than '1,'Y.Yl couples.  A reporter the other'day asked this  authority for his views on marriage.  Mr. Nixon said : "When marriage is a failure the fault nearly  always lies at the husdand's door.  The .man lets romance die. He  forgets. '  Mr. Nixon mused a while. "It  is like this," he said. "A man of  middle age and a youth of poetical  appearance sat side by side in the  smoking car of a nearly empty train.  In the solitude the youth took a  photograph from his pocket, looked  at it and then said to his companion feverishly : "Were you ever,  sir, in love V"  "The man of middle age started.  Fie laughed. '"Was I ever in  love ?' he repeated as he relighted  his pipe. 'Was I ever in love?'  Well���������I don't know if '   -  " 'You don't know ?' cried the  youth.

Eve was the only woman who  had positive proof that she was the  only woman her' husband ever  loved.

Little Carolyne, aged 5, - was  playing that she was Mrs. Smith,  and had coined with her youngest"  child to visit her Aunt Helen.  During the course of the conversation, after Carolyne had told  many things that her "child'.' had  done, Aunt Helen looked up from  her sewing and remarked carelessly.1: "What a bright-child you  have.
