I have read in some German legend,

I had been up counting the sheep, and
left the hut at dark on my road home.
The distance before me was about six
teen miles. I rode along, my mind oc
cupied with conjectures as to the best
disposal of my sheej during the trying i
drought. Lhe road now turned down

iho best he could, my horse cheerfully
jogged on his homeward path. The
mountains towered in shadowy gloom on

side of the river, which, although con

however, as my sable friend led me
through the scattered fires, surrounded
by a number of blacks, who so far as I
could guess, seemed to coincide with
his views concerning me. Most of the
mob had depaited to the tires which
appeared behind mo when I first came
upon the natives.
I found that there were two camps at a
distance of about 200 yards apart, and
my people belonged to the small camp.
We arrived at a tire which, from the
signs made, i iound was owned by the
tall fellow with me. He made a series
of gestures, by which I understood him
to intimate that I was to partake of his
hospitality. The only word of English
he knew was "white fellow." This he
repeated several times. Sometimes he
pointed to me, then to himself, patted
his breast and smiled ; then he would

around the forehead and encircled the

pipeclay to imitate skeletons. Boomer
angs, stone tomahawks and knives hung
from their girdles. Holding their el
bows close to their sides, they moved
their forearms and hands in a segment of
a circle from their waist to their ears,
first the right, then the left, in time to
the barbarous chant. Beyond those,
the chief figures in the assembly, stood a
dense crowd of tierce-eyed sable warri
ors, leaning on their spears. Looking
around I found the men of my party
had assumed the same attitude, while the
women had taken a position a little apart,

AYas such a one now to take place? My
blood began to curdle and my fiesh to

for the moment the utter impossibility of
getting away from the nimble-footed,
sharp-eyed savaiges. My tall friend,
however, seemed to divine my intentions,
for he patted my breast, then pointed to
himself assuringly, then to the large
camp of natives which we were uearing,
and shook his head, spitting with appar

what he was driving at, but it seemed to

was the case. "We had approached with

Now I heard their low, rapid utterances,
in various excited tones, in front, be

hopeless. There was one chance for life
in the iiiconsistenc' of their behavior. I
determined to put a bold on the matter,
appear at home, laugh and talk with
them, anil if the worst came, sell my life
as dearly as possible. Accordingly I
shouted, i-Hey ! Come on Boodergee
you, my boys, come along!" and a great
deal more nonsensical talk, which they
could not have understood, but which
served as well as anything else to
show them the sonfidence I tried to gull
them into believing I yet possessed. The
effect was magical. A simultaneous
shout came from those nearest. All
around in fifty different places as many
voices broke into an unintelligible jargon ,
while from the camp the noise of wo
men's voices could be heard as they
shrilly inquired what was going on ami
tendered advice or admonition.
Knowing how useless it was to do any
thing else I sat still on my horse, and in
a few minutes was surrounded by a
dense crowd of dark, savage-eyed wild
meu, all fully armed with native weap
ons. Moi'i kept coming. There was a
perfect B.ibel of sounds. The gloom
was so great that I could only distinguish
the dark, moving figures and longspears,
or occasionally the glint of a pair of
tierce, glittering eyes shinning out of a
paintrbedaubed visage. Now they felt
me all over. On feeling the pistol, which
I had returned to my belt, the man who
discovered it said somethiug to the
others, who became still more excited.
They now led me, still sitting on my
horse, across the ford of the river to
wild and devil-like they looked as their
fires threw their light across them. Thick
masses of curly black hair, low fore
heads, short noses, largo white teeth, and
short beards on the upper lip and chin,
seemed to strike me most ; their eyes
never seen belore. At the same time it
commenced. A half-circle of tires burned
brightly in front of us. Between us and
the fires were seated rows of women,
across whose knees were stretched
lightly their 'possum cloaks. They held
boomerangs in their hands, whicli thev

pleased with their treatment that they
asked permission to bring their tribe in,
which they did, and we had no more
difficulties afterwards.

it seems that when up the river in pur

tribe we attacked. He had hidden him
self under a log I had taken my posi

him and allowed him to escape, and it
was in gratitude for this supposed ser
vice that he had saved my life."
"Then you did not know that ho was
under the log?" asked John.
"Not I. It would, I am afraid, have
ben a bad day for us both had I."
A timorous hidy in Providence,
who is til ways looking under the bud
for u man, went to the post ofiico the
other day with a friend to buy some
postage stamps. As they stood
there one of them noticed a man
standing close by, but she didn't
think he looked suspicious until
afterward. She ordered what stamps
she wanted, and, taking her pocket
book from a chatelaine by her side,
she paid for them and stepped to the
opposite desk to attach them to let
ters. In a moment more she went
back in a very excited manner and
inquired for "that man who stood
here." Ho had gone. t; Well," said
she. "he has taken mv pocket-book
and all there Ms in it," and she
pointed ruefully to the open, empty
chatelaine, "liow much money was
there in it?" asked the clerk. She
was too excited to tell, or for some
reason didn't wish to do so. " Vv hat s
that in 3our hand?" inquired the
clerk. Lookinir at the hand desig

But the commands of this slightly
vexatious despot (Ivan) seemed at times
to have puzzled his most faithful com
missioners, for on one occasion, having
sent for a nobleman of Casau, called
Piesheave (which is, being interpreted,
Bald), the Vayod, mistaking the name of
the word, sent for 150 bald-pa ted old
men. More than eighty or ninety, how
ever, he could not get together; so he
sent them up speedily to the palace with
an apology that he regretted he could
find no more in his province, and de
sired pardon for the short measure.
The Emperor, astonished at the sight of
so many old bald-headed pates, devoutly
crossed himself. At last one of the
chief men delivered the letter, and the
Diack showed His Majesty the copy of
the leiter he had sent to the Vayod, and
the mistake being found out, the bald-
pates were made drunk for three days
and sent home again.
