Photograph by W. D. Young A WAKAMBA FAMILY AT HOME IN KENYA COLONY Huts of Negro tribes in Africa are practically always of beehive shape, but they differ in details. AnAfrican residence inside isusually acollection of posts. These serve not only as roof supports, but also as uprights for partitions. In large huts natives often curtain off with bark cloth sections for a goat stable and other divisions for sleeping quarters. The center may be devoted to one or two fireplaces.
