ESKIMOS REUNITED TO WORLD.
Those of Greenland's East Coast Again
in Tsncn with Civilization.
The Eskimos of the east coast of
Greenland hare been reunited to the
m orld, after having forgotten, perhaps
for many years, the little they ever
know of it, says th9 Philadelphia Pub
lic Ledger. The Danish supply steam
ship Godthaab has returned to Copen
hagen from a visit to Angmagsalik, a
station established by the government
for the purpose of improving the con
dition of the Greenland natives and
developing a trade with them. It Is an
Interesting enterprise, because Den
mark's dealings with aboriginals are
humanizing and philanthropic, and the
material it had to deal with here was
In its natural condition.
As far as is known, the natives of
Greenland's east ceast had never come
Into contact with the white race until
twenty years ago, when they were dis
covered by Capt Holm, a Danish ex
plorer. It was six years later before
anything store than fragmentary infor
mation about them was given out, and
then Denmark published a sumptuous
work in three volumes devoted to the
people and their habitat Probably no
other book so exhaustive and costly
has orer been printed about a handful
of primitive people. They numbered
only MS when they were discovered.
The supply steamship reports at
Copenhagen that the East Greenland
station Is In thriving condition. It has
simply transformed the life of the na
tives. They have knives, timber, metal
points for their harpoons and a hun
dred comforts and conveniences they
never knew before. The Danish gov
ernment buys their oils, furs, skins
and feathers. The station takes every
thing they have to sell In exchange for
the commodities they require.
A way has been found around the
glaciers jutting out into the sea which
se long barred attempts to travel
around the south end of Greenland. A
few parties have made sledge jour
neys to the Eskimo settlements of the
west coast, and seme of them have set

their present abode.

There are not many inventions of

a good one, generally out of the or

Many of the numerous Inventions
patented contain novelties more theo

ideas are generally good, but when it
comes to putting them in use it Is
often impossible to do so. A delivery

It is a common sight to see several

them in the cellar of a building, the
usual method being to allow the barrel
to gradually slip down a pair of ropes.

AN AUTUMN NIGHT SCENE.
Vivid Word Picture of a Clear Night
in the Focono Mountains
Wonderfully clear and distinct the
myriad s tiers appeared. South of the
zenith a planet blazed.' Like a broad
band overhead stretched the milky
way with familiar constellations on
each side. Almost in the center was
Casseopia's chair. Near by gleamed
Andromeda and the stars of Perseus.
Just above the northern horizon lay
the big dipper, and In the east Alde
baran was rising, with the stars in
the belt of Orion twinkling near. A
faint streak which lasted but an In
stant showed where a meteor's career
had been burned to dust There was
no moon to dim the light of the lesser
stars, and everywhere around the
brighter ones they, crowded, leaving
no spot of this rare autumn sky with

Out of a dusty corner of memory
came a thought which youthful fancy
had conceived; that the stars were tiny
holes in heaven, used by the angels to
peep through to see if people were
good or bad, and the light of the stars
was the glory of the . (Treat white
throne shining through the peepholes.
- To senses steeped in the quiet of
this brooding scene came like a shock
the realization that in the north, close
to the summit of a dimly outlined
mountain spur, a faint phosphorescent
light was glowing in the sky. A long

On one side the extension is divided
into suitable sections, each section
controlled by a brake operated by
means of a lever placed opposite the
entrance of the chute. By operating
the lever the lower end of the exten
sion is pulled across the surface of the
chute toward the opposite side. When
the barrel has been started on Its jour
ney down the chute it naturally gains
momentum, but by application of the
brake of the first section its speed is
diminished, or it can be stopped en

opens fer the discharge of exhaled air
which has been breathed. Reservoirs

sen for sustaining life are attached
to. the back of the wearer by straps,
and connected by a tube to the back of
the hood, with valves for regulating
the supply. The compressed air can
thus be readily supplied from the res

be breathed by the wearer. After en-
