"At a fnntnsla In the Sudnu," says
Mr. KUwiiid Kotlierj;ll In "Five Yeurs
In the Sudan." "I have myself seen
the part that u young man plays Of
his own free will In order to obtain
the title of iickou blunt itlie brother
of the glrlsi. This ceremony would
turn a reformer s hair gray.
'The men tind the women of a vll
uige sit rouild In a circle, leaving a
space In the center of some six yards
In diameter. 1 describe It as I saw It
myself. The strongest man In the Til

and, tanned with a whip of hippopota
mus hide, be und the young man who
Is to . strive for the title enter the

and, the men clap their hands to the
. "The 'nhdldnte for honor Is stripped
to the waist. He stands with bis arms
folded in the center of the rng, and
the strong man dances up to him to
the tune which Is being played. He
brings the whip round with all the
force of which he Is possessed and
lands it on tha bare back of the man
In front of him. ne dances away

repented. This goes on until the num

case I saw It was'twenty-flve. If the

whip descends, ho Is disqualified and
branded as a coward until sueh time

"On this particular occasion he went
through with It like a Trojnn." Indeed,
the man who was delivering the blows
got tired first, and the last three cuts
of the twenty-five were unsteady and
flickered round the ear and neck of
the 'brother.' 1 leave my readers to
imagine the state of his bark when nil
was over, but he appeared to be ns
happy as a king, and certainly he was
accorded a great ovation by 'the as
