P ri m itive Justice In the E a r ly Day s the Auetrelien Bueh. In Near by one Australian town, long ago, a savage tribe had mur dered a family of settlers in the night save one lad, who escaped death by opportunely tumbling to the floor between the bed and the wall, himself wounded, unconscious and left for dead. What the provo cation was nobody knows. It is probable that there was no specific provocation. I t had doubtless been undertaken upon savage impulse and accomplished for nothing more than the momentary pleasure of dealing death to some living crea ture. This was the inspiration of many similar deeds— neither venge ance nor spoil, but the swift bes tial, wanton blood lust, indulged, celebrated, laughed over for the time and forgotten. And therein lies a sufficient explanation of the terrible character of the retaliation. Whatever the case, the boy, having thus narrowly survived, made bis way to Brisbane, where he related his story to the authorities, and to 6uch good purpose, ns it turned out, that he was given a rifle and free leave to return to the district and shoot as many black fellows as he could manage, being heartily assur ed that the law would not molest him. “ You see,” said our fellow travel er, “ he was regularly licensed.” “ By the department of game and fisheries?” I scoffed. “ Ah, come now!” he replied. “ I am not joking. I do not mean to say,” he went on, “ that the au thorities gave this boy an engraved license, suitable for framing, but I do assert that they commissioned him to kill black fellows and that his commission was not altogether sin gular, but one of a good many. And he did kill black fellows— hundreds of them, possibly. He killed them where he could find them, running the bush or employed on the sta tions, not even hesitating in the presence o f their white masters.

Cleopatra was not the only During the French conquest of Algeria (1S30-3) negotiations for peace were entered upon with the sheiks of certain Arab tribes, and a meeting for the settlement of terms was srranged to take place at the French headquarters. The French officers received their guests with great hospitality, and after the ban quet given in their honor, at which the utmost splendor was employed in order to dazzle their eyes and captivate their simple minds, an ad journment was made to a large hall, where M. Iloudin, the celebrated conjurer, who had accompanied the French forces, gave an exhibition of his skill. They stared in open mouthed wonder at all the tricks that were performed, and a feeling of awe crept over them as they witnessed the mysterious appearance and dis appearance of various objects. But what appeared to them most mar velous was the apparent manufac ture of cannon balls. M. Houdin passed round among them a high hat, which they exam ined very carefully, but without sus pecting anything unusual in either its make or its appearance. When the hat was returned to him the conjurer placed it on the floor in the middle of the stage in full view of his audience. He then proceeded to take from the hat cannon balls apparently without number and roll ed them across the floor into the wings. With this the performance terminated. The chiefs then consulted among themselves and came to the conclu sion that it was useless to offer any opposition to an army that could turn out its ammunition in so easy a manner. They therefore signed the required treaty and departed to tell their friends in the desert of the wonderful power o f the invad ers. The Depreciated Area. Two old colored women were hav ing dinner together in the cabin. The pot of boiled cabbage was on the floor, and the dog walked into the room and started to drink out of it. Old Aunt Easter drove him out with the broom, and, coming back, she gave the other old woman a spoon. “ Liza,” she said, “ take dis spoon and dip dem dog laps out o’ de cab bage!” — New York Poet.

Until comparatively recent times they were used medicinally in Europe and still appear in the ma teria medica of China. According to one Chinese authority, a pearl, after being treated with pumice stone and honeycomb, mixed with the gall of a serpent, “ might be drawn out to the length of three or four feet. Make it into pills and swallow them— henceforth food will be unnecessary." The suggestion is not that the patient would be finish ed off, but that he would live, food less, forever. H i t Prayer. O’ Connell had got a man off at one time fo r highway robbery and at another fo r burglary, but on a third occasion, for stealing a coast ing brig, the task of hoodwinking the jury seemed too great for even his powers of cajolery. However, he made out that the crime was committed on the high seas and ob tained an acquittal.
