HOW ZULU WOMEN SEW. They Cse Skewers For Needles and Giraffe Sinews For Thread. The skill of the Zulus of South Africa In sewing fur Is a household word In South Africa, and some of the other tribes compete with them. The needle ' employed Is widely different from that used by the ordinary needlewomen. In the first place, It has no eye; In the second. It is like a skewer, pointed at one end and thick at the other. The thread Is not of cotton, but Is made of the sinews of various animals, the best being made from the sinews In the | neck of a giraffe. It Is stiff. Inelastic, with ' a great tendency to "kink" and tangle itself up with any thing near it. Before being used It Is steeped in hot water , until It Is quite soft and Is then beaten between two smooth stones, which causes it to sep arate.lnto filaments, which can thus be obtained of any length and thickness. .Thus the -seamstress has a consldera ' ble amount of labor before she com mences with the real work In hand. .

I consulted a bird doctor, but a* Cockle's health was perfectly good and his diet all that could be recommended, It was supposed he only plucked himself -for want of occupation, and firewood was recommended as a substitute.

A man who Is back from a visit to Paris and Germany is telling a story which ought to make the great Ameri can eagle flap his wings with pride. It happened at a little railway station in Germany, Grunenwald »hy name, while the man' who tells about It was waiting for a train on a branch line which connects with the main line at that place. Besides himself there were at tbe station a party of American tourists of the kind you read about in English books and an English family of the kind you read about In Ameri can books. The Americans were loud voiced and ungrammatlcal. They laugh ed a great deal and they ate peaches, the stones of which they threw at a post to test their marksmanship.

"I remember once we were playing southern towns with Edwin Booth and wanted to put on 'Richard 11.' . . No special scenery was carried for this, and I was told to look over the stock at the theater to see if there was any that could be used. The. second scene called for the en trance of the king and all his couriers into a royal hall. I picked out a Bet of scenery that I thought would do for the palace, but cautioned the stage hands not to get It on wrong side out. Well, the first scene was finished, and when the stage was disclosed for the second there was the typical old kitch en scene, the one with hams hanging from the rafters, a candlestick on the mantel and all that I was horrified and asked Mr. Booth if we should change it by ringing down the curta...
