Until my father exclaimed, "Why.

What utter waste of time!" "Com

"I only wish I could forget It. I sim

LITTLE CHANGED BY TIME
Dwellers In Mountains of Tyrol Live
In Much the 8ame Way as Did
The mountains of Tyrol shelter one
of the few remaining unspoiled penn
ant people of Kurope a people that
wears a native costume, remembers Its
folk legends and follows customs cen
The mountain Tyrolese arc robust,
hard-working folk. Life In (he moun
tains demands work from every mem
ber of the household from daybreak
until after dark. , Then, on winter
nights, the Tyrolese peasants piny.
Dancing Is n favorite amusement
after the day's work, and this Is all
the more surprising because the dances
of Tyrol are more strenuous Ikoo those
of Itiisslu or I'oland. To swing your
i purtner up to the celling, and to fall
down and spring up again wmioui us
ing the hands for support are among
the "steps" of a good dancer's reper
toire. While the dancing couple excitedly
swing and caper, the others sing and
piny the sillier, the favorite Tyrolese
musical Instrument. Original songs
are In high favor, and also the old
folk songs of princes und peasants,
shepherdesses and huntsmen. The
pensunts slug lustily and well. Only a
realisation of tomorrow's work puts an
end to the affair, and sends guests
trooping home still whistling or hum
ming: the last song.
