Within another year much informa
tion about the Congo and the com
mercial enterprises developing there
will be accessible. The -whole course
of the river, from its mouth to Stan
ley Pool, has been carefully surveyed
mid mapped. Stanley's furthest sta
tion now is at the mouth of the Ikc
lemba river, about 1,000 miles up the
river. He has established friendly re
lations with all the natives. Com
merce in Central Africa is destined to
find along the Congo the line of its
most rapid development
Prof. Nordenslrjold lias believed,
since he made the northeast passage,
that in August every year, vessels
from Europe could pass through the
Kara Sea and reach the Yenisei river.
If this were 'so, it would bo a fact of
commercial importance; but the ex
perience of Lieut Hovgaard in the
Dijmphus and of the international
jHjlar party in the Varna confirms the
older belief that it is not safe to
count at any time upon the navigabil
ity of the Kara waters. Lieut. Hov
gaard has given up his trip along the
Siberian coast and has returned lo
Vardo on his way home.
James Stuart, a civil engineer in
the employ of the London Mission
ary Society, is building a road be
tween Lakes Nyassa and Tanganika.
He has completed seventy miles of
the road, and, as he expects to finish
it soon, the society has sent to him
a steamboat built in sections for
transportation overland, -which he
will launch on Lake Tanganika. The
Scottish Missionary Society has two
steamers now on Lake Nyassa. Goods
can now be taken all the way from
London to the north end of Nyassa
by steamer, except at the rapids in
the Kivcr Shire, around which they
have to be carried by land.
M. Do Brazza has reached Do
Brazzaville. This is a small collec
tion of native huts at the west end of
Stanley Pool. It is on the north bank
of the Congo, and Stanley's Leopold
villc is almost directly opposite on
the south bank. De Brazza's right to
the place and lb the adjoining terri
tory is now disputed by the natives.
Stanley has established so many sta
tions and has succeeded so well in
his efforts to win the good will of the
natives that it is doubted whether Do
Brazza will be able lo compete with
Jiim on even terms in tho work of
opening the country.
The colonists who will leave Eng
land before Christmas to settle in
New Guinea will be practically the
pioneers in a land that is nearly as
large as England, France and Ire
land together. Next to Australia, it
is the largest island in tho world. Its
soU is very fertile, it abounds in fine
natural harbors,, and most of the
country is healthful. Many of the na
tives are cannibals, but they have
been friendly toward the whites, so
far as their fears have permitted them
to be. D'Abertis, the Italian ex
plorer, trusted himself alone among
them for nearly a year, and from his
renorts and the resort's of Baccari.
another Italian traveler, is derived
the greater part of the information we
have of this little-known laud. New
Gninea is north of Australia, from
-which it is separated by a strait only
eighty miles wide, and Queensland is
still agitating the question of aunex-
mg the island.
Most of the scientific parlies that
avero stationed a year or more ago
around the world, near the arctic cir
cle, for the purpose of making simul
taneous observations have returned
home. The English parly from Fort
llae. cn Great Slave Lake, probably
arrived in England a day or two ago.
Gennauv has relieved her party who
were stationed in Cumberland Sound,
Davis Straits. The Swedish observ
ers in Ice Fiord, Spitzbergcn, have
gone home after a successful winter's
work. The Austro -Hungarian ob
servers on .Tan Mayen, 350 miles
southwest of Spitsbergen, repotted,
upon their return, that last winter
was a verv mild season there. The
Norwegians have relieved their party
at BosekosB, in Lapland, and our ob
servers at Point Barrow have arrived
home. The Dutch party that went
out in the Varna, bound for the
mouth of the Ycnesei, never reached
their destination. Nothing has yet
ieen heard of Lieut. Greeley or from
the Russian stations at Moller Bay,
Navnva Zemilia, and at the mouth of
the Lena river. Scientists will bo
greatly interested in reading and com
paring the forthcoming reports of
these international observers.
The route by which Speke and
Stanley reached the north shores of
victoria ivyanza is aDoux ouu mixes
long. It starts from Zanzibar, and is
at present tho most practicable roule
lo the lake. For years the ltoyai uc
ographical Society of London has de
sired to open a route some 150 miles
north of Zanzibar, extending to the
Victoria Lake in a straight line, and
shortening the distance -about 300
nines. It is difucult however, to
open this route, as IheMasais, a great
tribe living west of Mount Jvuiman
jaro. seldom permit strangers to pass
through their country. No white
man has ever crossed their territory.
Last spring the Boyal Geographical
Society intrusted to Joseph Thomp
son the hazardous enterprise of try
iug to reach the Victoria Lake
through the Masai country. In June
his party reached the Masais. It was
nnfortunato for him that Dr. Fischer,
the German explorer, had had a fight
with tho Masais a few days before.
Thompson s efforts to establish friend
ly relations with the tribe failed, and
tie had to retreat When last heard
from his party had started on July 5
with a trading caravan 700 strong,
nud Thompson expected to push
through tne Masais to the Lake.
This young man is a conspicuous
figure among African explorers. Four
vears ago, when he was 21 years old,
lie was left by the death of Keith
Johnson at the head of an expedition.
Nothing daunted, he pushed on, and
spent over a year exploring the conn
trv between Lakes Nyassa and Tan
raniku, and the west coast of Tan
vanika. He is a scientific traveler.

Of all the beautiful pictures
That hang on Memory's wall.
Is one of a uiin old forest,
That seemeth best of all:
Not for its gnarled oaks olden.
Dark with the mistletoe:
Not for the violets golden
That sprinklo the valo below:
Not for the milk-white lilies
That lean from tho fragrant hedge,
Coquetting all day with the sunleams,
And stealing (heir golden edge;
Nor for the vines of tho upland,
Where tho bright red berries rost:
Nor the pinks, nor tho pale, sweet cow
slip, It wxsnieth to me the b?Ht.
I once had a little brother
"With eyes that were dark and deep
In the lap of Unit olden forest
lie lieth in peace asleep:
Light as the down of tho thistle,
Free as the winds that blow.
We roved there the beautiful summers,
The summers of long ago;
Bat his feet on the hills grew wory.
And one of the autumn eves
I made for my little brother
A bed of yellow leaves.
Sweetly his pale arms folded
My neck in his meek embrace,
As tho light of jinmortal bounty
Silently covered his face,
And when the arrows of sunsot
Lodged in the tree-tops bright
He fell in his saint-like beauty,
Asleep by the gites of light,
Therefore, of all the pictures
That hang on Memory's wall.
The one of the dim old forest
Seemeth best of all.
Important to Land Buyer.
A contemporary makes some valu
able suggestions lo persons desiring
lo enter land under the pre-emption,
homestead and limber culture acts.
No man should tliink of making an
entry without first seeing the land he
desires to enter going over the land
md examining the corners. The rep
resentation of persons already settled
are lo be received with great caulion.
-Much land is kept out of the market
bv the untrue statements of settlers
who want to take it themselves. As
i settler can not hold n pre-emption
and a homestead at the same lime, he
is often disposed to prevaricate about
the condition of the quarter section
adjoining him which he wishes lo
take after he has proved up on the
claim ho already holds. Or he has a
friend or relation who is going to
take it when he gets ready. Fre
quently there aro honest errors in re
gard to tne number ana tne descrip
tion of land, which involves the per
son filing or entering in much trouble
The proper wav for any person to
proceed, who is absolutely certain as
to the description of the land he
wants, is to go to the land office and
get a plat oi tne townsuip nc wisues
to locate in. The law of last- March
compels tho district land office to
furnish these plats and nxe3 tlio lees,
so that all uncertainty and mistakes
may be avoided and no exorbitant
The land office circular says under
the section of the act of Mnrcli 3d,
18S2, authorizing a charge to be made
for plats or diagrams, the fees for tne
same are hereby fixed as follows.
For n diagram showing entries

It often takes months, frequently
years, to correct a single mistake of
one figure m an entry. It is no busi
ness of the land office to make out
applicat ion lo enter land, and when
they do it is simply a matter of ac
commodation on their part They
aro not responsible for any mistakes
that may occur, or -which yon by your
misinformation may make. A mis
take in vonr entry involves the subse
quent employment of a lawyer to
liein von correct, it. it may require
two years even with his help, to get
the consent of the general laud office
to amend your filing or entry, iiy
that time the land you want may be en
tered by somebody else, and you have
had all your trouble and expense for
nothing, and lost your land besides.
to correct an error in a lanu eniry
an affidavit is required, setting forth
in full and with great particularity
the nature and cause and character of
the error. This must be corroborated
by two disinterested persons, ac
quainted with the facts. Then this
must be endorsed and recommended
bv the land officers. It then goes to
Washington and bides its time. It
may be two years before you hear
from it In the meantime someone
else more cautious and better posted
may have entered the land you want.
There is no business in -which the
truth of the old adage, "a stitch in
lime saves nine," and "tho more
haste the less speed,' is better lllus
trated than that of entering govern
ment land. For the want of a knowl
edge and appreciation of this fact,
occasionally a settler finds his house
and improvements on another mans
ranch: or by the mistake of one let
ter or lignre, no is living ioriy mues
from the land he entered, or ho has
double the amount of land he act
ually wanted, because his quarter sec
tion. instead of being the level and
tillable tract he wanted, stands on
edge, and has an option as to which
side of the hill ho will cultivate. Go
slow, but sure, and get a plat.
