ODD WAYS OF THE FISHER FOLK
Habits and Customs of Dwellers on
the East Coast of Scotland Are
The fisher folk of the east coast of
Scotland have habits and customs dif
ferent from those of any other section
of the working classes.
Except in selling their fish or pur
chasing the actual necessities, or oc
casionally borrowing from the bank
when assistance Is required In the buy
ing of an old or the building of a new
boat, they have next to no traffic with
the outside world.
It is senium that a fisherman marries
other than a flstier lass, and even
should she allow her affections to wan
der, the line is firmly drawn at a
cooper or other fish-worker with the
"codling bleed." which means that he
belongs to a fisher family.
There Is a distrust of the "fremt"
as outsiders are termed almost
amounting to a racial distinction, and
this is emphasized In the Implicit con
fidence one fisherman will place In an
other, although they may be utter
strangers to each other.
It Is safe to say that the majority of
the Scottish fisher folk are teetotalers.
An odd fisherman may be met in most
of the villages who is teetotal until
asked to have something. Then It 1h:
"Well, I'm a teetotaler in a kind ft u
way. Nae bigoted, ye ken ; I never
took ony pledge. A man's aye best
that can templar hlmsel' ! Oh, I'll drink
yer health no' that I care a preen
p'nt for 't. Na, thank ye, I never
The fisherman Is emphatically of a re
ligious turn. As a preacher he Is a
marvel. With fewer opportunities than
most men for the cultivation of cor
rect speaking, he can go out into the
square at Stornoway or Fraserburgh
where thousands of his fellows have
gathered for the summer herring-fishing,
and discourse on a text for twenty
minutes or so with an eloquence and
grip of his subject which might be
envied by many members or the cloth

Dog-Eating Cease as Igorotes Try Out Beef
Manila. The dog market of Bagmo
has disappeared entirely and the eat
ing of dogs by the Igorots, a non
Chrlstlan tribe, has been reduced to
a minimum, according to Col. Henry
Knauber. head of the constabulary
academy at Bagulo.
"Introduction of the meat of cattle
and hogs has turned the Igorots, who
formerly ate dogs. Into eaters of
meats recognized by the civilised
world as eatable," said Col. Knauber
"These people had to have some kind
of meat and years ago the only ani
mal they knew was the dog.
"When civilization Introduced cat
; tie and domestic hogs to these moan
tain people, they quit eating dogs
Only a few scattering cases of dof
eating have been reported for some
time, and these were among the poo

lit), 1S23. by McCluie .Nownpayor syudlcaie.j
Hamsey Cummlngs was a bachelor,
thirty-three years old, and was shy
and ruther self-centered.
So when Rainsey came to his office
in the morning he generally went
through the same routine day In and
day out without much variation. There
was a shy greeting to the office force,
a quick dart into his large, comfort
able office, a glance through the mall
and then some dictation to pretty
Mary Evans, while, shyly, he marveled
at the luxuriance of her unbobbed
brown hair, und marveled at the depth
of her big blue eyes, and felt a little
flutter around his heart at the mere
thought that perhaps she might 6ome
day preside over his home instead
of merely being an important cog in
the office machinery.
But this morning there was a break
In the routine. Kamsey, In fact,
scarcely even looked up when Mary,
radiant in her youthful beauty, en
tered on time to the dot and took her
But Uiis morning there had come a
letter an extraordinary, startling let
ter and Ramsey was still reading It
over and over and still trying to de
termine whether It was a hoax or the
This is what the letter, written In a
flowing, feminine hand, had to say:
'Dear Kamsey (that's not very for
mal, is it?)
"I know you're a lonely old bachelor
and you ought to have a home of your
own instead of merely Inhabiting
quarters. It looks to me as If you
don't have much fun in life and It also
looks to me as though a good home
cooked meal would do you a world of
good. So I'm going to take pity on
you and Invite you to take dinner with
my married sister and myself tomor
row evening at half past six o'clock at
my sister's home, 918 Linden avenue.
There will be only we three my sis
ter's husband will be out of the city,
much to his disappointment, because
we told him about our plans and he's
much Interested In them. And I'm
going to cook the dinner entirely by
"Now here's the point: I'd Just die
if you should find out who I am, be
cause this Is a mighty bold thing to
do. My sister and I will be masked
while you are at the house and I'm
going to trust to your honor not to
try to find out who we are.
If you can't come, please phone
Main 12119 promptly at 12:30 o'clock
tomorrow noon and simply say 1 can't
come' and give your name. But If we
don't hear from you at that time we'll
expect you tomorrow nlghc'
There was no name signed to the
letter and nothing else.
Ramsey, quite absorbed at this
rather pleasant break In the monotony
of his life, read the letter again and
At last, however, he looked up to
find Mary's big blue eyes fixed on him
In puzzlement at this astounding dis
arrangement of the morning's routine.
And as Ramsey looked full into Mary's
eyes the letter was momentarily for
gotten and a stronger wave of senti
ment for Mary swept over him than
he had yet experienced.
On the Instant Ramsey felt a wild
outburst of hopes and affection on the
tip of his tongue.
Then, on the instant a cloud of
despair swept over him. For Mary
dropped her eyes to her notebook and
there he sew again the photograph
of a man the same photograph that
had been In her notebook for the
past week end which she so frequently
regarded with rapt attention. Her
fiance, probably, thought Ramsey rue
fully. Dictation went badly that morning.
All durfaj the time Mary was In the
office with him there were two ele
ments In Ramsey's mind which stopped
his usually ready flow of business
language and made him frequently
stop i.nd stare blankly into vacancy.
Oue of these was his rapidly growing
sentiment for Mary nnd fast augment
ing rage i. gainst the unknown man
whose picture she carried In her note
book, nnd the other was the lure of the
unknown v oman who had so suddenly
and Interestingly come Into his life.
All the rest of the day Ramsey was
restless. Should he accept the Invita
tion or not?
On the following day he was not
himself at alL He found It so Im
possible to conduct his routine as un
der normal conditions that he dis
pensed entirely with dictation and
spent almost the entire morning In a
flurry of Indecision as to whether he
should go to Linden avenue and meet
the masked hostess or not For a shy
man and a man who had few adven
tures In life it was quit a problem.
But half past twelve came and
went, and Ramsey failed to call.
As the afternoon wore on Ramsey
came to feel a certain sense f fatality
in the coming event. If he went to the
dinner, he felt. Instinctively, that the
masked hostess would ensnare him
and that Mary, consequently, would
pass out of his life forever.
With a sort of courage born of des
peration Ramsey tried hard to see
Mary and tell her something that
afternoon of the tumult in his heart,
but fortune wasn't with him. He
found no opportunity for doing so.
At last, then, Ramsey, neatly garbed
In a dinner jacket, drove to 918 Linden
avenue. He looked with a quickening
heart at a charming little bungalow,
whose windows were glowing with
friendly light and whose whole appear
ance seemed to say "Here are life and
joy and companionship. Come in.
But In spite of the cheering appear
ance of home Ramsey felt eiubar
rassedly diffident as he finally ad
vanced up the walk to the veranda and
timidly rang the doorbell.
There was a moment's delay. Then
suddenly the door swung open and
Ramsey, blinking In the light, saw a
masked woman standing In front of
him and beckoning him to enter.
At least she wore no wedding ring,
so this was the writer of the myste
rious note. This was his hostess.
In pantomime the masked hostess
drew him Into the room and led him
toward the tire, where the heat, on
coming in from the frosty night, felt
But why didn't she speak? Was she
As though In answer to his thoughts
the masked hostess took a tablet from
the mantelpiece and wrote upon it
hurriedly. Then she showed the mes
sage to Ramsey. This Is what ho
"You might hear me speak some
day, so I'll not speak tonight. You
understand I don't want to be recog
nized." Ramsey read, then looked up at the
woman. Her eyes were twinkling be
hind the mask. Surely she couldn't be
old. Surely she must be pretty and
attractive and lovely.
Ramsey felt his heart stirring. He
felt himself enjoying his adventure Im
mensely. A moment later another masked fig
ure came Into the room. Ramsey, in
pantomime, was Introduced to her
and the wedding ring on her finger
pointed out to him. This, then, was
the married sister.
Almost Immediately Ramsey was di
rected to the dinner table.
In all of Ramsey's long boarding
house experience he'd never euten such
a dinner nor, In spite of the silence,
broken only by his own comments nnd
laughter, had he ever been In such
congenial company. It was good to
he there In this cozy, warm home, with
these two women attending to him.
Yes, beyond a doubt his hostess must
be young and lovely. Such a splendid
adventure could have no other climax.
But all good things must end. Too
soon Ramsey found himself subtly
directed toward the door nnd found
his hat and coat It was time for him
to go. Th
A chill dismay clutching nt his
heart, Ramsey stopped at the door and
turned to face his masked hostess. The
married sister had said good-by In
pantomime and disappeared Into the

and yet surely there was a message
In them for him. Surely
Suddenly a great Joyous sense of
conviction swept over Ramsey, He
advanced a step toward his masked
hostess, who retreated precipitately.
Then he stopped.
"I I," he said, huskily, "I know
you I I know you. I'd know you any
where, under any conditions. I've been
crazy about yon for weeks months,
but but into to the first time I've
ever had 1 1 1 e courage to say anything.
Why, why did you tease me so with

For a moment there was silence.
Then the masked hostess spoke and
the voice was Mary's voice.

said softly. "I found the picture on
the floor in the office and and "
Now Ramsey had her In his arms.
"And I let you see the picture so as
to make you jealous. But you didn't

Goslings Month Old Are Hardiest of
Fowls Grass In Ration Is Most
After goslings are a month old they
are among the hardiest of fowls, but
they are rather delicate at first and
should have careful attention. The
main thing Is to keep them warm and
dry the first few weeks, feeding them
a little at a time and often say fOUi
or five times a day. One of the best
rations on which to start goslings is
a mixture of corn meal and shorts,
mixed with bread or cracker crumbs,
hard boiled eggs chopped tine, etc.
It Is also a good plan to provide
some tendi-i- grass as a relish right
from the start. The goose ts essen

Its ration Is aulte Important at all
times. Other grain food, along with
meat scraps, should be added to ths
ration gradually as the goslings grow.
Most people keep goslings in small
movable runs for the first two weeks,
so they can't run wild but can be
moved to fresh ground each day where
they can pick grass and bugs. The
extent of this ranging space can be
gradually Increased until the goslings
are a month old, then they should be
