PRETTY GIRL SLAVES.

How They Are Ilought and Sold In th
Market at Htamboul.
There are actually at Stamboul about
ninety regular slave brokers who sell
and buy slaves, or who are the medium
of buying or selling. The slaves a-e
lodged In bouses known by the publio,
just as they know tne dealers In any
sort of merchandise. The principal
slave houses are about thirty.
The Abyssinian slaves are rare on ac
count of tlie delicacy ot their health.
An Abyssinian maiden from fourteen to
seventeen is worth from 60 to 120 liras
(a lira is worth about 18 shillings), but
a handsome one Is sure to bring 800
Bros. White slaves (Toherkes) are
more abundant. Muidens from twelve
to fifteen are quoted from 00 to 800
liras, and those from sixteen to twenty
from 00 to 1,000 liras. Tbe price varies
according to beauty, size, complexion
and accomplishments. Singers and
musicians generally bring a good price.
Many people here buy slaves for legal
marriages, preferring them to Turks.
Tbe reason is that a slave has no rela
tions (mother-in-law especially), and,
therefore, no visitors or callers. She
endeavors to please her husband. She
is obedient and economical, and very
affoctlonute even lr pretty well treated.
Many sieves would not leave their
masters lur the world, but many others
would be too glad to obtain their lib
erty. Homo are well looked after, well
cared for, richly dressed and have costly
jewels. They dino with their lady and
are treated as companions and as mem
bers of the family.
Among the possessors of slaves who
were the most noted for their kindness
and benevolence was the late Princess
Zeinoub Hiinoum, tbe daughter of the
first Viceroy ot Egypt, Mehemot Alt.
During ber lifetime she gave monthly
allowances, from two to fifty liras, to
each of ber slaves. She had some
eighty of them married to respectable
gentlemen, and gave to each a dowry of
from ".,000 lo 5,000. Before her death,
throe years ago, she made a will grant
ing freedom to all ber slaves and dis
tributing to them valuable presents and
There are hundreds of young girls
who are sold to persons who sell them
or exchange them for others of greater
beauty, it is revolting to see to what
extent slavery is encouraged here, and
how many ot these poor creatures
would like to fly away from tlie brutal
ity of their masters, and how many
others are exported against their will.

A llaiireealile Disease Due to Constitu
Eczema accent on the first syllable-
is one of the many eruptive diseases ot
the skin. . The blood-vessels of tbe
parts utTeeted are in a state of conges
tion, nccoimmulod bv Itching, smarting
und ex iiilu tion of serum, or wutcry por
tion of tile blood. The disease varies
gt-eutly In severity and extent as well
as In its course and character.
Its simplest form is a mere redness,
perhaps on the eyelids or behind the
ears, or neur tho joints. Some times
there are pimples, either on affected
spots or around them, or more or less
dlirused over the body.
Sometimes vesicles wutor-bluddors
are formed by tho exudation of serum
beneath tho skin, tho special seat being
the buck of tho hand or tbe front and
shies of the tl tigers. In a few days the
serum may be ubsorbed, the swelling
subsides, the cuticle- dries up and comes
olf, and tho skin either returns to its
normal condition or the cuticle Is
thrown olf In si-ales.
In another vurloty there is intenso
rcduoNH, profuse exudation and the
formation of a thick crust through fis
sures In which a mucous pus exudes.
The final period of eczema, when
chronic, may he characterized by a com
ing olf of the cuticle in thin, fine scales,
or by a tendency of the skin to chap and
ciuck; sometimes tbo mere stretching
ot the fingers will cuuse It to break.
In some cases tbe skin becomes as
hard and tough us leather, with an in-
Unatton to itch and throw off dry and
scaly scurf; more rarely It Is rough like
an old wart, in which case the Itching Is
generally vory severe.
As a rule, tho eczema occurs in limited
patches, but occasionally it spreads over
large part ot tbo trunk or limb.
'I'll ere is hardly any part of the body
which It may not attack. It is not contagious.
The disease may result from a condi
tion of the laxly from constitutional
debility, or temporary derangement of
the nervous or digestive organB, or even
from unsuitable or insufficient food or
it may have an external exciting cause
-cold or heat in excess, lnsulllcient
lothing, or garments that irritate the
The treatment must be first directed
aguinst that which causes tho condition

At tho same time locul treutment will bo

can bo given suited to so variable a

Adventure In a Forest.
On Little river, near Osceola, La.,
Robert Warren, a lumberman, lost his
way in the woods. He thought he heard
a buinun voice, and hallooed to attract
attention. Ills shout was answered, and
the cries came nearer and nearer. Then
lie discovered that it was a pan
ther that hud been yelling. Being un
armed he climbed a tree and remained
in it for uti hour. The panther finally
left When be thought the coast was
dear Warren descended and pursued
his way, and when be again hallooed to
t tract attention the panther returned,
this time ui-coiiipaiiicd by his mate. Up
pling he again went armed with a
stout club and determined to sell bis
life as dearly us posnibie. In tbe mean
time the hoys in camp had become
lurmcd at his absence and started out
to search for him. They bud reached a
point within a quarter of a mile of
where he was treed when they caught
the aouiid of bis call for help, and, as an
answering signal, tired olf a gun, which
had tlie clleet of frightening oil tbe
panthers. - I'liie.i-o Herald,
