What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
---ters=erss's Following the Gypsy Trai Lazy, Roving Life Led by Many Hundreds of Thousands of People Traced Back Into the Dim Past—Have a Domestic Code of Their Own — Queer Way German Gypsies Have of Administering Justice. T .. HE gypsies are herer 11auy of us remember the awful scares of ingenuous childhood when the word went round. In fact, very often we were the tint to note the presence of the. strange people, of whom we stood In mortal terror, fearful that at torn. unsuspecting moment they would grab hold of us, rudely thrust us into one of their mysterious and forbid- ding looking wegous and make off with is, especially if we were 1 , - 1 lit- tle boys and girls and didn't mind our mothers and fathers as we shoiiiii. And a better behaved lot of children it would have been hard to and any- where. Even if we behaved the very best we know how we had donlitA— and such serious and calatultnus doubts they werel—that the gypsies would steal us anyway. In ths days when this haunting fear gripped us we d1d1)'1 went to know anything shout the gypsies. All we wanted was for them to go awny—far, far sway. The reamaurance of parents that the gypsies really wouldu't steal us, that the story of their doing such terrible things was untrue, was never convincing. Recollections of the one time dread bob up when, grown up, unafraid and humanly curious, we venture Into the midst of these pil- grims of the road to look them over at close range and take note of how they Ilse, IN A GYPSY CAMP Arrived in the gypsy camp, we gee dark skinned. dark eyed. slender but sinewy men, women and chi'dren gath- ered together as if for a picnic in the woods. We find they are shrewd horse traders, inveterate card players, adept musicians and fond of glittering jew- elry.

Now when gypsies become acclimated to this country they make baseball a regular part of their camp diversion.

N, one who hits had any delight in Andersen's tales ean hear un- that the storks have fallen upon „ times.

Whether the disap- ,,sc e of wild animals from South before the advance of the set- , also affects the storks is a ques- -s not yet settled. he storks in Germany have to con - with a prejudice most difficult to .D.lieate, says the London Standard. 114.t,y are looked upon as enemies of sport. It is true that they sometimes raid the families of hares or find their food in ponds well stocked with fish. But the damage they do in this way is negligible in comparison with the great boon they confer on farmers by de- stroying mice and moles. If we are to believe the German or- nithological paper. alitteiltingen ueher die Vogelweit, a bad example in the treatment of this useful bird has been set in high places. The Grand Duke of Oldenburg is said to have given orderS for the curtailing of the number of storks in his state. Fifty per cent of them are to oe shot down. By deprtv- ing the female birds of their male ad- mirers the grand duke hopes to \cut down the birth rate.'\flie German paper containing this announcement protests against a barbarity which de- rrives villages of their old established guests, but it adds that similar eases are reported from upper Franconia, where the owners of sporting estates are initially compelling the peasants to remove the storks' nests perched on their cottage roofs. The paper appeals to the public to put a stop to this work of destruction. In Alsace happily such brutal method,: are unknown. There the bird whieh symbolizes such venerable traditions is treated with universal respect.

Here are the an- swers in brief: - Pooch\ Donovan of Harvard.—\The hammer throw, as it is. is regarded as a dangerous event, and if the danger cannot be eliminated I think it would be best to substitute for the event the throwing of weight for height.\ Keene Fitzpatrick of Princeton.—\I am very much in iavor of substituting the thirty-five pound' weight for the hammer, for a weight that can be thrown over thirty feet is dangerous to competitors and officials.' harry Hultman of Dartutotith.--\My opinion is that the regulations of this event should remain as they are, and the necessary precautions should be taken against accidents.\ Thomas Keene Tsf Syraeuse.- - I can- not see where the danger will be less- ened by subetituting a heavier ball and shortening the handle.
