(MANIA FOR .WILL-MAKING. An Old Woman Who Had a Distinct Method in Her Madness. "Several years ago," said a New Or leans lawyer, dialling about queer ex periences i r his -profession, "a woman died in this city who to my certain knowledge had made at least twentv- five different wilis. Oi course, there are people m- fhe world who' have a mama for will-making, just as there are manias in other directions, but there was a distinct method in this woman's madness. She made her -numerous wills for the deliberate purpose of exciting cirpidtty and Then- prohtmg by it, and n the tn'e story of the curious complica tions growing out of that policy could be written it would form an astonishing chronicle of greed and duplicity. To begin wit'h. she had a couple of pieces of improved property worth perhaps $6,000, and, a lot of personal belong ings, which were mere junk ami rub bish, but which she valued at a fabu lous figure. 'Between the two she was reputed to be worth from- $50,000 to $60,000, and there was much jealousy as to prospective suctessron among a lot of distant relatives. The old woman's plan was to take up her quarters with some particular set of her kin and make a will in tbeir fa vor. Neidless to say, she would be treated with every consideration, but she was very irascible, ami invariably got into a quarrel in. the course of a few months-, and moved somewhere else, where the same programme was reoeated. -She ipent years in migra tions of that sort, going Che rounds of her relative several times and , camp imr temporarily with numerous per- sotral friends. Whein she finally died t was found that ber last authentic wwl left tbe coveted property to a niece who had shown her scarcely any attention at all. and the wail of rage and disap pointment that arose was something simply terrific. I dare say she engen dered more family bitterncs wfaen she was alive, precipitated more-rows, and was in-strtiim-ntal in causing a greater number of people to stop speaking when they passed by than any other orre person in the parii. This was an extreme case, but it was by no. means unique.

There rs all the difference m the world between the various modes of s-baking the Wand of stranger or friend as to the resulting impression obtained by and through ibat operation, con i?ciously ' or unconsciously'" sad a society woman at a s4ect afternoon tea yesterday.

"The physical and mental strength are there united in the strongest mag netic center of the body. If, the two hands thus clasped are placed with their magnetic centers in close con tact, no matter where the rest, of the palm' may be, I insist that there is a strong magnetic current established be-1 tween these two hands. ! "It may be intensified in cftect if the; mounts at the bases of the other fin-i gers also be brought in contact withs each other, thus bringing the minor magnetic poles also together. Then, if live third, or 'ring finger, curfs around tne mount ot Venus astrological ly sit-; rated at the base of the little finger. above tbe heart line, and traversed by i thumb extends across the back of eacb friend's hand to the knuckle, at the base; of tlie 'ring finger.' clasping tbrtse chief; magnetic poles the more closely, the! law of magnetism is carried out to com plete perfection, the effects are most pronounced, and we enjoy the pleaur-i able int-erchamze of vibrations., whetheri we know tire 'whys ami wherefores' or not. j "In all prcjtiability. werh not care; why we only know thaHwe enjoy the! handclasp."

Indians of Tierra del Fuego Take Ad vantage of Their Strength. Dr. Frederick A. Cook teHs of a little-known race of aborigines in an article in the Century JMagazure for 'March on "Tlie Giat .Indians of Tier ra del Fucgo," whom hevisited on the Belgian Antarctic expedition. Of their marriage customs he writes: Marriage, like almost everything Ona, is not fixed by established rules. It is arranged and rearranged from time to time to suit the convenience of the contracting parties. Women. gem-Tally, have very little to say about it. The bargain is made almost solely by the men, and physical force is the principal bond of 'union. For ages the strong est bucks have been accustomed to steal women from neighboring tribes, and from neighboring clans of their own tribe. The Onas. being by far the most powerful Indians, have "thus been able to capture; and retain- a lib eral fifpply of wives. A missionary Who ha been in constant contact with these Indians for thirty years has giv en it as his opinion that a plurality of wives is entirely satisfactory to their peculiar emotions and habits of life. The relation to: one another of the women who possess' but one husband in common ill the family wigwam is of niovcl interest. As a rule they are no more jealous than arc tbe children of a civilized home circle. The principal reason for this is that the several wives are often sisters. A young, man takes by force, by mutual agreement or by barter the oldest daughter of a family. I'f he proves himself a god hunter and a kind husband. the"'wiie persuades her sister to join; her wigwam and sharr her hitbarHrs affections. Frequently, when a girl l.s left an- orphan, -die is taktn into a family and 'trained to be come the supplementary wifc of her fienefactor in after 'years. In the hut eath wife has her, own assigned posi tion, al-way resting in exactly the same pot, with alt of tier belongings about her. The wealth of the household is not common to all the occupants. Each woman has her owrn basket of meat, fragments of shellfish, her own bag with implements, needles, sinews and bits of fur. and each, wife has her own assemblage of children. Tlie work of tbe man is strictly lim ited to the chase. He, carries his bow and quiver of arrow. and hw eye is ever on the horizon for game; but he seldom stoois' to anything like manual labor that is not connected with the ac tual necessities of the chase.' He kills the game, but' the wife must carry it into camp. It moving, the" women take up all of their, earthly possessions, pack them irtto a huge roll, and with this firmly strapped across their backs, they follow the unincumbered lead of their brave but u-njjailant fiukbamts. Thus the women carry day after day, not only, all the household furniture, but thp children and the portable por tions ot the house. The women car tainly have all uninteresting detail and the drudgery of life heaped ifpon- them, but t'lrcy seem to crijoy it. Irp defense ttf the; men h should be said that they are worthy huibands. They will fight fiercely to protect their homes, and they will guard the honor of their wo men with their own blood. It is 4 crying sin of the advance of CbriiTtiah civilization. that this red man of. the far South -should be compelled to lay down hrs lite at the feet of the heartless pale ffaccd invaders to, shield, the honor of his home.
