An adventure in the surf on the West coast of Africa. West Africa is known to All navigators for its few harbours and its heavy surf which at certain seasons rages like a Battle defying the White Man who would approach its shores. The author of a the Jungle Folk of Africa a or. R. Milligan tells of a successful and to the observers an amusing Effort to reach Shore at a Point where the surf did not seem to be impossible. A one Day when the Beach seemed much better than usual the Captain and the ship s surgeon ventured ashore. The Captain afterwards narrated the adventure of their Landing to a Small i but enthusiastic audience. said that after waiting outside the surf Hal fan hour the headman suddenly gave the order and in a moment they were in the Breakers Riding on the top of j one of them and speeding toward the Shore at the rate of Quot seventy Miles an i i the Captain was in the Bow of the j boat Well braced and cushioned. But when the boat struck the Beach with railway collision the doctor was thrown violently Over two thwarts into the captains bosom whom he clasped about the neck with a steel like grip. Next moment another breaker picked the boat up and hurled it upon the Beach throwing both Captain and doctor to a perfectly Safe distance where they sprawled upon the Sand. The doctor still hugging the captains neck and very much frightened exclaimed a ooh Captain dear Captain is there anybody killed but you and me a Grant signed. Brave soldiers. Sacrificed their lives in an attempt to save the colors. In Days gone by the zulus were the boldest fighters among All the natives of South Africa and it was not until they had been Defeated in several Battles that they would live Ina peace with White people. In 1878 15.000 of the zulus attacked and killed a regiment of British sol Diers and a most heroic deed was the attempt made by three British sol a Diers to save the two flags or colors j belonging to the regiment. When it was seen that the Zulu a were so Many that there was no Hope of keeping them at Bay the colonel of the British regiment called to a Young officer whose name Ivas lieutenant Melvill and said a you will take charge of the colors Melvill and try to get away from the lieutenant saluted and took into his hands the two colors of his regiment. Then with another officer and a Soldier All mounted on horses he suddenly dashed away with his precious Burden. They were at once seen by the keen sighted zulus however and after a Meu fighting 10�?T by the enemy. Some time afterwards one of the flags was found near a Rocky Stream where the heroes had fought and died and it was taken to England and presented to Queen Victoria. And in memory of the three Brave soldiers who had died while defending it the Quee Efi placed a Wreath of Immortelle on the staff which held the mail. endorsed the order a still the Day of general Grant has fitly been spoken of As a an unaffected great it May have been the blending of thl Large minded Ness and Lack of affectation that invariably made him so courteously kind to any one who asked his assistance so generous in his Praise of an opponent even when that opponent was fighting him to the death. The following Little Story emphasizes All these qualities after the fall of fort Donelson to prevent the needless violation of property by either the Rainy or by Camp followers protections were issued by the United states government. To miss c., whose six Brothers were fighting in the Confederate army such a Protection was granted. It had been signed by All the commanders of the Post in turn by Buell Rosecrans Schofield Sheridan Grainger and Many others and the list was Long and impressive. At last it became necessary for general Grants signature to be added. A when i entered the office a says miss c., a the general was smoking his feet higher than his head. But he seemed instantly to stand upright before me and his Cigar was thrown away in a moment. A i Quot handed him my Protection. A a a you have rather a formidable list of names a he said As he took it from me. A a a and i Hope that you will add yours to it and make it even More formidable a i replied. A for answer he sat Down again ready to put his signature at the end of the Parchment when he suddenly slopped and looked at me. I a a a for How Long do you wish this Protection for your estate miss c.?�?T he asked. A a a until the Day of judgment general a i answered boldly a then he smiled that Sweet quizzical smile of his that made so Many people even when they were his enemies love him and said a a a my dear Young lady you have great Confidence in your armies but with such courage and with such a Leader As general Lee i cannot then with a great flourish he added the words a till the Day of judgment Ulysses s. Grant a and handed it Back to companion. Three Gallant it the my of were Kilt eur autumn leaves. Got him cheap. The Way a famous surgeon was once cleverly tricked. Sir Morel Mackenzie once received a wire from Antwerp asking him his charges for a certain operation. replied �500 and was told to come at once. When lie stepped upon the Dock he was met by three Meu in mourning Yho informed him sadly that he had come too late the patient had died. A but a said the spokesman of the party a we shall pay you your full and they did. A and now a said the Man a since you. Are Here what do you say to visiting the City Hospital and giving a clinic for the Benefit of our local surgeons it is not often they have an Opportunity of benefiting by such science As sir Morel said he would gladly comply. went to the Hospital and performed Many operations among which were two of a similar nature to that for which he had been called for. When he had finished All thanked him profusely. On the Steamer going Home he met a Friend who had a business House in Antwerp. A pretty scurvy trick they played on you. Sir a what do you mean a asked the surgeon. A told you the patient died before you arrived did no to they a a lies. You operated on him and a Friend with the same trouble at the clinic. Got two operations for one he was excited. Jas. W. Broughton. L. Len Lilliston. Broughton amp Lilliston fire Marine Accident plate Glass and life insurance Accomac a.

A Lincoln a said a senator at a banquet in Washington a had no great admiration for Mere financial Success. A a a financial Success a Lincoln once said a is purely metallic. The Man who attains it has four metallic attributes Gold in his Palm Silver on his Tongue brass in his face and Iron in his heart a a diplomacy. A Why do you insist on under rating the kind of Golf you play a a because a answered the Wist official a there is no use of making a whole lot of people jealous and antagonistic Over a Little thing like Exchange. The decisive Battles. Some married men will contend that a the fifteen decisive Battles of the word will never be Complete until a few Domestic scraps Are added to the Telegraph. The idiotic affair. Irate parents am i to understand there is some idiotic affair Between you and that impecunious Young ass. Lord Hilaris fair daughter very sweetly a Only you papa a illustrated bits. For Good. It never seems to occur to persons who Are getting married that they ought to take each other for Good As Well As for better or record. _ the change of color from Green to red or yellow or Brown. Despite the commonness of autumn colourings we do not yet know the full meaning of autumn colors of leaves. We do know that late in the summer the tree is preparing for the Leaf fall by drawing the valuable substances of the Leaf into the Stem. It also ceases to make chlorophyll the Green substance of the loaf which aids in the snaking Ore bait s Rood an ctr Tell gradually fades away in the Bright Light. By Quot fading it exposes to View any other colors in the Leaf and All leaves contain yellow colouring matters called Xantho Phyl whose function is not known and it is these which give the yellow color to autumn leaves. The red is formed differently. In Bright Light Aud Cool temperature a new substance called Ery Theophyl is made from sugar and Tannin in the Leaf cells and a hat has a red color. A Brown substance is also sometimes formed and besides the Skeleton of the Leaf itself turns Brown As the Leaf Dies. It is the various combinations of these substances that give the Many shades of autumn colors. Some students think these colors Are a useful Protection to the living protoplasm life material of the Leaf after the Green disappears protecting it against the full Blaze of Light which is injurious but others think the colors have no use at All but Are simply the incidental chemical result of the processes in the ripening and dying Leaf. As yet the weight of evidence seems to favor the latter View but the matter is still unsettled. It is generally thought that Frost has something to do with it but it has not except to hasten it. Anything which affects the vitality of the Leaf tends to hasten it for which reason an injured Branch of a Maple will often show red autumn color even in summer. The colors Are brightest where the leaves receive the most Brilliant w. F. Ganong in st Nicholas. And yet he was making Only a very reasonable request. It was a dramatic scene pregnant with the most tragic possibilities. Thus thought a witness to the meeting of three italians near the big express depot at fifteenth and Market streets. A Man and woman who were delivering a trunk into the hands of a clerk were suddenly confronted by another Man who was highly excited. approached the woman. In voluble italian he raved and swore and pleaded while she thrilled equally excited answers. The other Man stood Back against the Wall his arms folded defiantly his head sunk on his Chest. It certainly looked As if daggers were to be drawn. The interested bystander asked of some listeners who understood the rapidly spluttered dialect what the trouble was All about. A Why a was the volunteered translation a this woman has run away from her husband with this Man a pointing to the sulky individual. A ooh and he is begging her to return a was the next query. A not on your life a was the expressive reply. A she has packed up All her husbands clothes in her trunk As Well As her own and he is begging her to give Back at least his sunday Philadelphia record.

A who is that neglected looking Little Young Man Lincoln hired a livery stable horse to attend a convention where he expected to be nominated for some office. The horse went so slow that when he reached there the convention was Over and the other Fel Low nominated. On his return he brately asked the stable keeper if the horse was Good for anything at All.
