Etiquette In Mexico.
Travelers through Mexico report
ninny peculiar customs which reflect
the temperament of 4he people. Some
of these are founded upon supersti
tions hundreds of ytjurs old while oth
ers date from more recent days. There
Is a prevailing belief In the couutry
that there Is bad luck In a sequence
of threes and wherever possible the
combination of three Is avoided. This
Is shown very often to persons strange
to the land In (he lighting of a cig
arette. In the United States one often sees
three men light their pill from one
match. It would be a gross Insult
In Mexico to offer n man a light from
a mutch that had nlrendy started two
cigarettes going. Instead one must
blow out the match and give him
light from the Ignited coffin nail.
Frogs That Have Hair.
"Finer than frog hair" litis long been
a slang method of expressing the su
perlative degree. Doubtless no one
ever gave It a thought whether frogs
have hair or not. - Probably no one
ever renllzed .they did until Trof. G.
A. Boulenger discovered In the Ger
mnn Congo frogs thnt had growing
upon rhelr bodies either hair or a very
good Imitation of It. It has since de
veloped that anatomically It la not
hair, In the sense In which that term
npplles to mammals. Our own hair Is
akin to finger nails; It Is a horny
growth, whereas the "hair" on the
African frogs Is an abnormal devel
opment of the tubercles that appear
on the skin of the ordinary frog. The
ordinary person, however, who places
appearance above origin, will doubtless
call It "hair."
