There is an aboriginal race in Borneo, of which it is said that they dispose ot their aged parents and relatives in an interesting, novel and altogether aboriginal fashion. They courteously, but withal peremptorily, require them periodically to climb trees, and when they are well up and grappling the branches, they shake the trees. If the venerable representatives of the earlier generation hold on, they are pronounced to be still green; but if they drop, they are adjudged ripe, are fallen upon and eaten, the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet being reserved as the prerogative of the heir-at-law, as the richest morsels.

I had been somewhat inti mate with him as far as it was possible under the regulations and surveillance to he and he seemed to think he could take me under his wing all right enough. So, one day, says he to me: ' "How would you like to go to the hos pital, Van?' "I told him nothing short of my release from the pen would suit me better. ' "Would you be willing to pay me S3 for it, Van?" he said, 'if I should get you into the hospital and keep you there to help me?' "I told him I would, but I hadn't got the Jo just then, though I expected a friend of mine would come in on next visiting day and slip it to me, as he had promised to do.
