THE LATEST EGYPTIAN CALAMITY.
A few days ago Baker Pasha started
out to relieve Takor in Soudan. He
took -with him 1,400 Egyptian infan
try, 800 Egyptian cavalry, 2,040 Soud
anese, 150 Turkish cavalry, four
Krupp guns, two Gatlings and a few
rockets. "When he started he was
impressed with the inferiority of his
force. It was not a good omen that
a brave and capable leader should
start into the enemy's country with a
force which he considered wholly in
adequate. The result was that dis
aster overtook him. His cowardly
troops were cut to pieces by the
fierce Arabs of the Soudan. Even
the Egyptian cavalry threw away
their saddles, dismounted and turned
out to be cowards. They went down
on their knees and bellowed for their
lives. A few days ago there was a
statement by telegraph that the
Egyptian soldiers who were sent to
the Soudan by way of Suez, had to
be driven on board of the steamer
like cattle. Soldiers who gain vic
tories are not made out of such stuff.
These blacks have no patriotism, and
they have no country. The Egyptian
army has from time to lime been
recruited from the Soudan. The
blacks have been bought clandestine
ly and forced to serve in the army.
That army was wholly inadequate
to put down the rebellion in Egypt
which Arabi Pasha, a fierce Arabian
Mohammedan, had incited. It never
would have been put down without
the aid of English troops. When
these disciplined troops took the field,
and war ships opened on the forts,
the rebellion was of short duration.
England saved Egypt from the rebels,
from that element which is fierce in
its fanaticism and which hates the
presence of foreigners. The Soudan
will never be reconquered by Egypt
ians. Like Egypt, it is under the
suzerainty of Turkey. But the latter
power will do nothing to recover the
country. "Chinese" Gordon has just
started for Khartoum with a small
military escort, to see what can be
done to recover the country. He is
thebravest of men. His record as a
military leader of the Chinese forces
during the rebellion of the Taepings
was the most rema k .ble of any war
rior in that struggle. The Chinese
believe in him. Tney saw him go into
action with only a small stick which
he waived while the balls fell like hail
about him, and they believed that he
had a charmed life. Gordon is well
known in the Soudan. It is said that
all classes believe in him, They will
take his simple word at all times.
What his fate may be after the dis
aster which has overtaken Baker
Pasha no one can telL Gordon
started on what may be called u diplo
matic mission. He had full liberty
to pacify the country or to fight in
his own way. If it became necessary
to recede from Khartoum and estab
lish a line lower down, he was author
ized to do it
One fact iB established beyond
question. The Egyptian troops will
never reconquer the Soudan. Baker's
force, of nearly three thousand men,
was routed by a force hardly exceed
ing one thousand. The difficulty with
the English troops is the deadly in
fluence of the climate. In some parts
of Soudan, as in the equatorial high
lands, the climate is good. But in
the low and hot districts along the
rivers, there are climates that are well
nigh fatal to white men. Troops
brought from India would probably
make the best record. Not only is
the Egyptian soldier worthless, but
it appears that the late disaster which
overtook Baker Pasha, tho Egyptian
officers were treacherous and so were
absolutely worthless. It is hardly a
wonder in view of such facts, that
there was fear that the rebellion
might extend into lower Egypt for
lack of any native troops which can
be trusted to fight in defense of their
How Indians Capture Whitefish.
The Indians on the Sault Sto.
Marie have a peculiar method of cap
turing whitefish which abound in the
rapids. Two Indians enter the rapids
in a canoe, one occupying the bow
and the other the stern, the boat's
head being kept up stream by a pad
dle in the hands of the latter. The
Indian in the bow stands upright and
by the use of a long pole keeps the
canoe steady. A dip-net, four or five
feet in diameter, and attached to a
fole fifteen feet long, is in the boat,
ying where it can be quickly and
easily reached by tho Indian in the
bow. The boat is kept at the foot of
the rapids by a wonderful display of
skill on the part of the Indian with
the paddle, now holding it in one
spot, now forcing it a little further
up the stream, and now letting it
float sidewise, all at the signalling of
the Indian in the bow, who keeps a
steady watch on the water. II is
rarely less than ten feet deep where
they fish, and the Indian fishermen
possess the power of seeing the fish
as they appear at that depth in the
rushing water. As soon as the In
dian sees a fish he seizes the net by
the handle and thrusts it savagely
into the water, gives it a peculiar
twist and jerks it to the surface, and
never without some of the finest spec
imens of whitefish, frequently as many
as six. Two Indians in a boat of this
kind will often tike as many as 1200
pounds of fish in a day.

Those over-good people who do not
like to see a public journal give the
news of the day because some of it
must necessarily refer to stray sheep
in humanity's flock, should close their
eyes, stuff up their ears and clog up
their nostrils when they go out walk
ing, for fear they may see, hear or
smell something unpleasant. Ignor
ance is not innocence, and the hot
house plant is not always the most
chaste. Sac. Bee.
Exactly; and yet if one has a dead
doar in his backyard, isn't it better to
dig a hole and bury it than to wait
until it becomes reeking with decay,
and then drag it by the tail through
all the streets of the citj? & J. Mercury.
Swaying his Audience-
Old Gen. John B. Clark was in his
day a commanding figure in the poli
tics of central Missouri, withal much
of a demagogue. George G. Vest,
now United States senator, used to
have a world of fun with the old man,
being frequently pitted against him
in the courts. Clark was an exceed
ingly lacbrymouse individual, and
had a phenomanal csntrol over his
lachrymal ducts, being able to shed
tears whenever he felt so disposed.
Vest tolls a story of having once
been employed in the prosecution of
a young man for stealing chickens.
The trial was set to occur in Boon
ville, and old Gen. Clark was secured
to defend the prisoner. When it be
came noised about that Clark was
going to make a speech, the people
began flocking into town from every
direction and the court-house was
crowded to suffocation. The audi
ence was largely composed of women,
for Gen. Clark was immensely popu
lar among the fair sex. When it
came the old man's turn to speak he
arose tremblingly, and with his wrink
led face bathed in tears he said m
quivering tenes: 'To honah an'
gent'men of the jurah lean ill con
ceal my emotion upon this sad occas
ion. My heart, yo' honah an' gontl'
men of the jurah my heart, 1 say,
almost forbids mo to perform its func
tions as I am brought face to face
with the hideous charge which has
been foully hurled at this noble
young man. my client here." Several
ladies in the audience began to sniffle
and sob faintly, and the judge, rap
ping violently on his desk, command
Gen. Clark blew his nose impressive
ly and proceeded in a still more emo
tional strain: 4,I know the prisoner
well I have known him intimately
ever since first a smiling babe I held
him on my knee and heard him coo
the heavenly music of innocent child
ren. I knew his father well a noble,
Christian man, and, your honah, an
gentl'men of the jurah, I knew his
grandfther well" but at the very
thought of the prisoner's ancestry,
the speaker broke completely down,
buried his face in his bandana hand
kerchief, and wept like a child. From
all over the court-room arose sobs and
dismal groans, and even the jurybe
gan to manifest symptoms of melting.
The judge, who appears to have
been a hardened, remorseless, cal
loused man, rapped on his desk and
cried: UI fear I shall be compelled
to order the sheriff to clear the court
room." Gen. Clark saw that here was
a chance for a theatrical climax, so
removing his bandana from his
streaming eyes, he cried out piteous
ly: "Yo' honah. drive out the men
and women if you will, but oh, yo'
honah, in heaven's name, spar' oh,
spar' the children."
The mortgage tax law requires that
all mortgages shall be taxed and as
mortgages are recorded in tho books
of record the only way the tax col
lector can get at them is to take these
rocords and make a list of them. At
least that is what tho assessor of
Marion county did, as we are told,
last year, the effect of which was to
greatly increase tho assessment roll
of that county. As these county
records have been kept a long time
there are a great many mortgages on
record. A great many of them have
been paid off. but the records do not
show that they have been cancelled
as they ought to. This is due to
neglect, for whenever a mortgage is
paid off the holder of it should go to
the clerk's office, take tho book of
mortgages, find the record of that
particular one, and endorse on the
margin in red ink a statement of its
cancellation, duly dated and signed.
Owing to the universal carelessness
of all parties to mortgages the as
sessor seems to have made returns of
a great number of paid-up mortgages,
and the county I a ; returned the same
to the state. The effect is that the
county must pay the state tax on
all these mortgages, and will come
out heavy loser unless .some way of
relief can be devised. Farmer.
The postage on photographs has
hitherto been one cent for each two
ounces, the same as the rate on maga
zines and books. This rate is now
doubled, as appears from the follow
ingcircular to postmastcis, just issued
by the postmaster-general: "Labels,
patterns, photographs, playing cards,
visiting cards, address tags, paper
sacks and wrapping paper with
printed advertisements thereon, bill
heads, letter-heads, envelopes, and
other matter of the same general
character, the printing upon which is
not designed to instruct, or amuse, or
cultivate the mind or taste, or impart
general information, are mere articles
of merchandise and should be rated
as fourth-class matter, one cent for
An old Texan recently said to a
visitor in that state: "What Texas
needs mor'n all things is women; yes,
sir, women; women such as will make
a man slick up a little and h ive some
stylo about him. Thar's homes for
fifty thousand women on the line of
the Texas Pacific railroad, an' wel
come. Men with means is plenty,
but women sich as I'm alludin' at is
scarce. I never knowd a marriage
able woman who stayed three monLhs
in a town but could a had the pick o'
the country by noddin' her head."
At a recent meeting of Kepublicau
senators and representatives in Wash
ington, Senator Edmunds said that
the prospects of the party in the ap
proaching campaign are better than
they have been for fifteen years. He
had every reason to believe that it
would be successful, provided it exer
cised discretion in the selection of a
candidate for president.
Eeno, Nevada, boasts of a man who
was a grandfather at the age of 39
years. San Francisco goes them one
better by producing a man who was a
grandfather at 35. But Oregon beats
the world. I know of a "woman in
Polk oounty who was a grandmother
at 28. Next. Vesta.
