It L said that American girls who
have been educated abroad never
grow to look with respect upon the
land of their birth and its institu

the pageantry of monarchical fun
di tions they grow to love the splendor
and deem the simplicity of American
customs barren. American history
is insufficiently taught American

they are shown distorted by the

If you go down to French Guiana
and ascend the big Moroni river-n
little distance you will find a great
many negroes who talk very bad
French. Some of them, however,
have visited France and have a little
education. The more intelligent of
these negroes will tell you that the
greatest man who ever lived, except
tae first Napoleon was Boni. One
of these negro tribes is called the
Boni, from the name of the man who
t jleased the people from slavery.
Boni was the intelligent and au
dacious negro who, in 1772. revolted
against his master on the coast of
Dutch Guiana, destroyed his prop
erty, escaped with hundreds of other
slaves and founded a new home for
the people, whom he piloted to the
borders of French Guiana. For many
decades all slaves who escaped from
their masters were able to find their
freedom among the Bonis. A curious
story is told about Boni by the ex
plorer Henry Coudreau, who has done
so much to make the interior of
French Oruiana known.
A long distance up the Maroni river
is the island Adlafo, which means
"cutting off the head." This is the
island where for a long time Boni
carried out the execution of crimi
nals whom he had condemned to
death. The enrions feature of his
system of capital punishment was
that he requned no assistance what
ever in carrying his judgments into
effect He alone escorted the con
demned persons to the island of Ad
lafo, and unaided ha cut off their
heads. The Spartacus of the "Ne
groes of the Woods" seemed to be
particularly fond of this son, of ex
ercise. Physically he was the most
powerful man in his country; No
ono wished to cope with him in com
bat. - When he had a prisoner whom he
had condemned bo would place his
flintlock and his saber in a canoe, seat
the condemned man in the bow of
the boat and then paddle up stream
several miles to the island. IIo would
not have even a boatman with him
on these little expeditions.
"Now," Boni was wont to say to
the unhappy wretch before him, aa
he paddled along, "do not attempt
to escape, for if you do I shall surely
stop you by a bullet in the legs. I
shall not shoot to kill yon, for I shall
wish to torture you after I get you."
"No. chief," the trembling victim
would often reply. "1 -shall not try
to escape." And such was the terror
Boni inspired that the unfortunate
prisoner would reach the place of
punishment prot-ably without enter
taining the slightest thought of es
When they reached the island,
Boni would tell his prisoner to get
out of the canoe ami would then
march him to the place of execution.
This was a large fiat rock, washed
by the waters of the rapid river and
shaded by a tamarind tree. The
rock is still shown to every one who
visits the spot When they reached
the- place, Boni, fierce and inexor
able, would sternly command:
"Now you die. .To your ktieca.
Your nanus behind your back. Hold
down your head."
The unfortunate wretch, more
dead than alive, would mechanically
obey : the order. Boni would raise
his saber, and with one sure stroke
would sever the head from the body.
The head would roll upon the flat
stone, and the blood would be washed
away by the rush of water from the
rapids, which now and then over
spread the rock. Boni would then re
embark, and upon his return hid peo
ple would more than ever regard him
as an object of terror to evil doers.

A farmer digging a well near Ms
houao at Darlington has discovered
that his dwelling was built over the
remains of a huge mastodon. He
has discovered about ten feet of the
tusk, but has stopped excavating in
the sandstone for fear of endanger
ing his house. Scientists who hate
visited Darlington to investigate the
discovery estimate that the tusk
must be about 16 feet long and the
whole skeleton 3(1 feet long and 18 to
20 foot high. A small chip from the
tusk was sent to a New York scien
tist who pronounced it the-purest
ivory. A rich mineral spring has
burst from the rock just above the
tusk. Iudiana Cor. St Louis Ulobs

to some degree.
