Mr. istanley arrived in England Katur lay after an alisence of nearly three year* A s|Hs ial vestibule train, carrying laird VUol-sdcy^Sir Francis He Winton, t’onsul-General New, several lords, a dozen generals, a score of baronet* and knight*, Ifty or sixty rejwirters, ami lots of other {teople more or less notable, left Ixmdon at l:Dp. rn. f*!T Ihiver. there t«> welcome the explorer aa be aet foot on Br itish soil. There was a tremendous crowd at Dover, md when tire special train arrived the tiler was so densely packed that Stanley's friends and the ie|sirters had to fight their way through. It was a case of the survival of the fittest, and a g(s>d many failed to reach the goal. Even the mayor of Dover, resplendent iii his mites aud chain* of •flite, was buffeted atauit in an unseemly fashion, Mud nearly found a watery grave •n his own harbor. Stanley, who arrived shortly ta-fore 4, had a fine pa--age from OM cud. and the glorious weal her should have put him iu gissl spirits. But he wa* grave and taciturn. and neither suic-hitie nor the cheering thousands served to put hint in g*xsl -pint*. Possibly the thought of (lie lion-ring atli! banqueting lieforehim made hun sad. Me had to listen to) a long winded tddrrss mad by the mayor, ami submit to :*e photographed, even is-fore he stepjaal ash on- Ile d)«l not like either infliction, and took no pains to feign pleasure at this commencement of hi* agony. Never! heles*, the g«Msl na! ared people made allowance* for the white haired, prematurely aged man, and cheered lustily until the train was out of sight. Ou the way to liondoii Stanley’s depression increased, ami his friends had to lo lutist of the talking Tile only really lively car was that occupied by tile re-IM»rters. wlm drank champagne, smashed a window, and wanted to prove that it was not a cast* of cause ami effect. At the Victoria station, london, the preparations usually confined toocca*ion* when royalty travels were made to do honor to Stanley. The police hail pushed ami kick**! common people out of the Ma-«i*»n. ami the enclosure had ta*en raih*d off *»n the platform. The train arri veil at 5:90 o’clock, ami Stanley was the first to Mep out of tin* saloon car as though he would have liked to run away. A j»air-horse open carriage was waiting, in which sat itaroness Bun I eft Colitis, who shocked i a md on some years ago by marrying amal) nearly forty years her junior. The bar itiiesi* has tas*n for years Stanley s kindest friend and patron. He might have 1»een exctiaed had Im ventured to kiss the oh! Ia*ly, ami none would have been surprised if he had shaken her hand. (tut the bored hero did neither. Ile liar) not set ti hi* patron since he set out. in ,uest of Emin, but he simply ta>wi*d, stepjietl wearily iuto the carriage. s))t alongside the liminess, trieil bravely to mile and relapsed into silen<*e. Pis^jde be*-red like mad, but Stanley simply waved tis hand in a languid Oriental manner, ml so continued until he reactasi his iudg- • ngs in Kensington. The crowds, except •ear flu* railway station, were not very huge, but the reception accorded to the explorer was unmistakably hearty. As for Stanley himself he deserves pity at lier than blame for Ilia lack of enthus-tstn, as lie said to a reporter: **I am simply liored to death,” amt yet the wretched unit has almost the wdioie of the Ixmdoa -eason t**fore him. FASTED FORTY DATE. Giovanni Sued. the little Italian who has be«*n fasting for forty day* at the Aquarium, took his first meal, consisting *>f a spoonful of bouillon, yesterday after-•io**n in the prweiMXof a great crowd of spectator*. He w.'ta not a pleasing spec- • o* I), although hi* physical condition is wonderful in view of the circumstance that he ha* sn I estated entirely up* in water for forty days. Me ha* let-n very carefully watched, night ami day, by two roimiiit-ieea of physicians from the Westminster hospital, who are |Misitive that he has con . inned nothing but water during the forty lays, with the exception of a little elixir, antaiuing ho nutriment, to allay atrium inn! pains. Sued lost thirty pounds •luring his fast, but though the skiu upon his forehead is like wrinkled I larch me ut, and his cheeks fall in tag.ween hi* high cheek tames sud lower jaw. and the lines of hi* fan- are drawn down ami haggard, tie walks finely, and bis muscular grip is a* strong as it wa* six week* ago.

People who saw Dr. Tanner at the con elusion of his forty days’ fast say that Su<*ci has come out of the test in loo per MHI. bettor condition than the American faster. The Italia** has fasted several times for twenty and thirty days, but never before for so long as fort y days, am! he baa consumed between a pint amt a pint and a half of wuter per day.
