BUSINESS CARDS. J' 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. una nis moors were iruitiui. 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 and expense. 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 charges made. 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 only , i u For township plat, showing entries, uuuitti ui ciunuuiiis, aim tuui- ni(nrcnf oiitrv 2 00 For township plat, showing entries, names 01 claimants, anu ciinr- ininr nf unf ttt jmil ?inmlwr 1 00 For township pint, showing entries, names oi ciaimams, cimrui:u:r of entry, number and date of filing or entry, together with togopraphy, etc 4 00 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. S pitn gfteiiD, Massl The Daily Union makes tne louowing puunc. "Dnr ronnrter m sneakmcr "wmi jut. J. U.
