But once up Thore Mother and of held grown wondrous fair what Liall we care a chills Mas cent Ali Africa. Christmas is a delightful season Christian lands especially when the Balanco of presents and dinners is one s favor and Tho tin Horn drop among the children has Boon a failure. Very different is Christmas Heathen lauds where the uses of the stocking Aro unknown and Christmas Trees Are Hung with unfortunate travellers and unappreciated missionaries instead of glittering and showy presents. Think of Christmas the Region of the North pie where the night lasts for six months so that even the Ablest of Tho Esqui Maux cannot distinguish Christmas eve from thanksgiving night nor Christmas morning from Washington s birthday or decoration Day even More depressing is Christmas Central Africa As a distinguished English traveler once discovered to his mingled sorrow and danger. The traveler was a Good and Noble Man. He was engaged discovering fresh lakes new kinds of cannibals and original sources of the Nile the heart of Africa and his Only desire was to do Good to the human race and to prove that Tho maps Mado by other travellers wore All wrong. To had been three years the dark continent and having suffered incessantly from fever starvation Tho rude embraces of Lions and elephants the bites of deadly serpents and the cruelties of native Kings was nearly worn out. He arrived Lata Ono afternoon Tho Shore of a mighty Lake which no Othor White Man had Over seen and which was at least 500 Miles Distant from any of the various localities which european map makers had previously placed it. He Lay Down under Tho Shadow of the Trees faint with All Tho various things that predispose a Man to to faint Central Africa but exulting the thought that he would compel the map makers to Placo Lake Jamb we whore he wanted it and not where they sell Ihly imagined it would present Tho most picturesque appearance. Suddenly to remembered that it was the 21th of december and that Christmas eve would naturally arrive the course of the next two hours. Tho thought saddened him. He glanced at his Bare feet for his Supply of stockings had Long Sinco Given out and he thought of Tho Happy Homes England where the children were preparing to hang up their mothers largest stockings while he must spend the blessed Christmas season among Savage Heathen and untrained animals. To Felt at that moment that to would give his new Lake Fer hour his English Home and to covered his face with his hands and sobbed Hini Bulf asleep. Ashen to awoke it was Broad Daylight. Tho Woods wore vocal with parrots who incessantly remarked Polly wants a Cracker and ostriches and other Birds each singing at the top of its voice. Tho bosom of the Lake floated immense native canoes bearing a ties of excursion lists Tho music of who of accordions and banjos came Over the water to the weary traveler. To was hungry and Felt his pockets for his quinine pills but they were All gone. He tried to Rise to his feet but to was too weak and rheumatic to Rise without help so he Sank Back murmuring " tis Ard Ard indeed to die Christmas among the the sound of women s voices roused him. Three Nativo women Clad Only Tho a Soto and Pom to worn by their sex that part of Africa emerged from the Forest their Woy to draw water from Tho Lako. They saw the travel or and Ono of them moved with comps Ion Sang a Low Mournful voice the poor White trash done come to Africa. To. Has t no Mother to Fry Hominy for him nor no wife for to Send to Tho Storo with a enc clod Asho was the traveler know that this was wrong for he had read Mango Park s travels and he could not help remarking you women Onn t sing that song As it ought to to sing it yourself then retorted the Singer a Eold heartless Way and thereupon Tho women passed and left Tho wretched White Man to perish. Tho cruelty of Tho women made the traveler so indignant that to resolved to make Ono tremendous Effort for life. He managed to Rise after painful exertions and Tho use of Many scientific terms and hobbled slowly toward a native Village about a Quarter of a mile away. To had scarcely reached it when he was seized by two Gigantic cannibals and dragged to Tho King s pal too where he hoped that Vithor death or breakfast to did not much Caro which awaited him. Tho Palace consisted of one Largo room with enormous throne extending entirely across Ono end of it. this throne sat twelve Nativo Kings a Row each Ono with a musical instrument his hand. Tho one who sat the Middle looked fiercely at Tho traveler and demanded of h u captors what was Tho Chargo against him. Poor White trash or. John sing briefly replied the largest of Tho two cannibals. Or. Bones i should Bay prisoner began Tho King what do you say for yourself i am a White Man replied Tho traveler but i Aven t and any soap for years so i plead extenuating circumstances. Besides i am Ungry. Avill you not give me some breakfast the King s face grew Bright wit i rage for it could not grow any Darker than it was and to turned to his brother Kings and conversed with Horn rapidly the Jamb we Tongue. They were evidently discussing the hit a of the traveler of presently the Izuo King cleared his Throat and said prisoner you have forfeited your life but we Are disposed to be merciful. You ought properly to to baked alive and afterwards eaten but we shall pronounce a lighter sentence. You will listen Atten ively Whilo to sing Tho opening chorus and Tho favorite Plantation melodies and you will guess every conundrum and laugh at every Joko. Sav i not wisely brother Bones a unanimous Yah Yah from Tho other Kings expressed their warm approval r no no i cried Tho traveler agony of fear. Give to Somo Little show. Burn me if you will but do not torture to this oly Christmas morning with your awful songs and conundrums. I be card them All at and his desperation Tho wretched Man fell his knee Lio Foro the Nativo King who had pronounced the dread us sen Tonco. That Monarch indignant beyond measure raised his guitar and struck the traveler a terrible blow Over Tho head. Tho Wherlo Earth seemed to reel and the doomed White Man became unconscious. When he regained his senses he found j himself sitting Tho Shoro of the Lako 1 where he had sat the night before. A Young Man neatly dressed european clothes stood before remarked a Graceful Way or. Jones i and you Are or. Smith i essay replied Tho traveler. Ave you got anything to eat with you the Young Man had been sent to find the traveler. He had with him All sorts of stores including canned Plum pudding and boned Turkey. As he Drew the traveler s Arm his and assisted him to Tho place where breakfast was awaiting them he said i wish you a merry Christmas it was Tho merriest Christmas Tho travel or had Over known and when he returned to England with More now lakes and two private sources of the Nile to said that All his honors could not give him Back the Delight which he had known during his last Christmas Central Africa after Awakening from his terrible dream of the twelve native l. Alden Harper s Magazine. Old stationery. Sin James Paget to illustrate the Absurdity of the English Law against vivisection says i May pay a rat Catcher to destroy All the rats my House with any Poison he pleases but i May not myself unless wit i a License from the Homo Secretary Poison them with Snake Poison to Obser Vaits it is probable enough says Glis Jav .n,.that, if social science had its Way a t and a Good Many other things Woi it soon be brought to the contemporary italian Standard curious fads act nun to ancient writing materials. From gentleman s Magazine is it not strange these Days of cheap stationery to think of a time when both Parchment and papyrus had become so Raro and so exorbitantly expensive that both greeks and romans Wero the habit of using a palimpsest which was simply some old manuscript with Tho Fornor writing erased Tims countless works of authors now Celo rated and Whoso every word is held priceless this nineteenth Century were ruthlessly destroyed by their contemporaries. Verily those prophets lacked Honor Many wore the expedients resorted to by Tho Early scribes for the Supply of writing materials. Thoro was no scribbling paper whereupon to Jot Down trivial memoranda or accounts but Tho heaps of broken pots and crockery of All sorts which Aro to abundant All Eastern towns prove Tho first suggestion for such China tablets and slates As we now use and bits of smooth Stone or tiles were constantly used for this purpose and remain to this Day. Fragments of ancient tiles thus scribbled such tiles As that Whereon Ezekiel was commanded to portray Tho City of Jerusalem Havo been found Many places. The Island of elephantine the Nile is said to Havo furnished More than 100 specimens of these memoranda which Aro now various museums. Ono of these is a Soldier s leave of absence scribbled a fragment of old Vaso. How Little those scribes and accountants foresaw the interest with which Learned descendants of the barbarians of Tho Isles would one Day treasure their rough notes. Still quainter Woro Tho rating materials of the ancient arabs who before Tho Timo of Mohammed used to carve their annals Tho shoulder Blades of sheep Tho o sheep Bono Chr orioles Wero Strung together and thus preserved. After a while sheep s Bones wore replaced by sheep s skin and the maidu facture of Parchmont was brought to such a perfection As to place h among Tho of Art. We hear of vellum that Wero tinted yellow others Whito others were dyed of a Ricoli purple and the writing thereon was Golden Ink with Golden Borders and Many coloured decorations. These precious manuscripts Woro anointed u Oil of Cedar to pre Sorvo them from Moths. We hear of Ono such which Tho name of Mohammed is adorned with Garlund of tulips and carnations painted vivid colors. Still Mote precious was Silky Papor of Tho persians powdered with Gold and Silver dust who Coupon Wero painted Raro illuminations Whilo Tho Book was perfumed with Attar of roses or essence of sandalwood. Of Tho demand for writing materials Ono May form some faint notion from the vast manuscript libraries of which records Havo been preserved As having been collected by the caliphs both of Tho East and West Tho former Bagdad the latter Andalusia where there Wero eighty great Public i libraries beside that vast Ono at Cor j Down. Avo also Hoar of Privato libraries such As that of a physician who declined invitation from Tho Sultan of Bokhara because the Carriage of his books would have required 100 camels. If All Tho physicians of Bagdad wore equally literary Tho City would scarcely Havo contained their books As to Hoar the medical brotherhood numbered 800 licensed practitioners. A Austin Hoo ranch. Little Johnny fizz top account of his Mouth has become the terror of his parents when company is invited to the House. One of the wealthiest and most fashionable ladies Austin recently took mansion. As Johnny had promised to behave himself like a Christian he was permitted to Grace Tho supper table with big presence. He sat opposite to the lady visitor who could not help remarking what a quiet Well behaved Little boy he was. His parents Wero also much pleased that to had said or done nothing to bring them Ink disgrace but they whistled before they Woro out of the Woods. Tho meal was about to close.

Fill i up this bottle anyhow Capen. I Don to want Tho gang to Guy Tho druggist took the bottle and moving around among different jars filled it Whilo a revengeful twinkle danced his eyes. When the Shoer maker returned to the Ranche the printers complimented him his Suo Cess but shortly afterwards when they heaved and groaned sudden and s eckness they cursed the druggist and his resemblance to Tho great master of London Low life description.
