“At one time we arrived at a vil

characteristic pygmy dance. The pyg

Both the pygmy men and the women
danced for the explorers and Mr. Lang,
who, by the way, took more than six
thousand pictures in the field of Af
rican life, game and other subjects,
succeeded in securing some capital
negatives of the pygmies.
"The women are slightly smaller
than the men," he said, “and their
clothing consists chiefly of the bark of
African trees. They usually speak the
language of the tribe they happen to
associate with, and the little people
are ruled by their own chieftains.
