Death of the Mitn Whom Htnty L'alleiT
tlir Napoleon of Africa.
A dispatch from Zanzibar tho other
day announced tho death of M r uubo,
whom St uiley called tho Napoleon of
Africa. Mirambo has for fifteen years
been tho terror of East Africa, and ex
plorers used to bring homo startling
.stones about the robber chief. He
proved, however, to bo ono of tho best
friends of the whites among African
potentates, and all tho later explorers
speak well of him.
Mirambo was tho chief of a littlo dis
trict in Unyamwczi, about 100 miles
east of Lako Tanganyika. He treated
tho Arabs who had settled near him
with great friendliness, and oft n gave
tifty cattle at a time as a present to
anybody whom ho esteemed. One of
tho traders took advantage of his good
nature to obta'n a large quantity of
ivory on cred t Ho then laughed at
Mirambo for trusting him, and refused
pavment, and tho Arabs ntUnyrnycinbe
turned thoir backs 611 Mirambo when
ho asked for justice. They have rued
the day ever since they made him an
enemy. Ho never forgavo the wrong.
He beat them repeatedly in
battle, and li 11 ally filled them
w.th such abject terror that they
have 111010 than- onco simply bar
ricaded themselves in their houses when
ho entered Unyenyembe, nnd let him
drivo oft their cattle without ottering
any resistance. For years ho was con
stantly on tho move, extending his do
minion and . bringing destruction
upon all tribes that did not submit.
Ho became tho most feared and most
powerful chief between tho Indian
Ocean and Tanganyika. African
mothers east of that lake and south
of Myassa have long used tho namo

White trawlers nnd missionaries
found another side to Miranibo's
character. They discovered that h;
fa thfully kcjd his jiromiscs, nnd that
when he sroko he m 'ant exactly what
he said. He treated oue ami nil kindly.
A nourishing mission station is in his
chief town. Stores of all sorts left in
Mirambo's charge have been carefully
kept from damage or thieves to
await tho call of the owner. The cara
vans from the coast that siip!y tho
Tanganyika Mission Stations now
avoid tho old route through the Arab
settlementi, and pass through M:ratn
bo's country. A few white men and

extend h s power will mourn his do-
parture. The rest of East Africa is
probably very glad he is dead. .V. Y.
A jioelliUxes Wllldl
A very pojmlar writer makes the
broad assertion that the hair and tho
ears arc true ind ces of the character
anil intelligence of their possessors.
Good, do-drablo hair, Indicating broad
no and slability of character as well
as profund ty and ivuteness of intelli
gence, may be bought; consequently
one rather inclines to dubiousness on
the flowing locks1 question. But upon
the ear tenet of this new doctr.no, ono
feels like joining hands with the writer,
and whispering to him: "Thou hast
touched tlio spot. J lie author of tho
theory savs a man with broad, oyster-
shell ears, having the usual number of
winkles, may bo safely classed as an
individual of rare intellect and estab
lished character. The number is small
and going out of fashion. Never seek
to be familiar with the man who has fat
ears. A man with such cars needs
practical sympathy. Tho chances aro
ho will tell you bo. When you see a
man with little, shriveled ears, which
have the aptcaranee of having been
glued upon the sides of h's head, do not
introduce ladies to him as a desirable

nor too thick, with no tendency to Hop,
and having a shrimp pink color indicate

vanity, without common sense, though
much eloquence. A'. Y. Herald.
