A Watted Admonition.
It was in a street car, and tho pas
sengers wore all fretting and nervous
over tho heat. A man and woman
and a fat baby occupied tho corner
seats. Tho baby, after clamlwring
around in an uimleHS mannor iopu
lar with infants, nt lost began to cry
lustily, whilo tho man jolted It up
and down first on ono kuco and then
on tho other, giving it his watch to
play with and doing his best to sootho
tho antics of tho youngster. An old
lady who sat in tho far corner bo
camo very much interested in tho
proceedings, and finally, when eho
saw that all overtures wore unavail
ing, sho could stand it no longor, and
in a voico that all tho passengers
could hear and looking very indig
nantly at tho young woman shesaidt
"That baby wants Its mother;
that's what's tho matter with It. You
had hotter take it A man nover
knows how to bondlo a baby any
how." At this very pointed remark
tho young woman in the corner rose,
gathered together her bundle and
made a hasty exit from the car. It
ia nodloss to explain that the baby
whs not hers, and it was hard to toll
which was tho moro embarrassed, tho
old or the young woman. Phlladel

I havo just profited by a holiday to pay
a visit to tho Chief Umtassa, or rather
tho Kinglet Umtassa, as tho official dis
patches call him. Tho country belongs
to him, and tho Chartorod company
gives him a yearly present of $100, and
this prcsont was just due. It is almost

to catch him in tho first of thoso phases.
Wo woro shown into a "reception
hut," into .which wo crawled almost
upon our hnmlsand knees, and wo seated
ourselves on mats, preparod to wait an
indefinite tlmo, for tho chio of a nativo
chief, liko that of a smart dentist, is to
keop overy ono waiting ns long as possi
ble. After about half an hour wo began
to clamor, and then wo loft tho hut and
began to wander about tho kraal, a pro
ceeding which tho natives greatly ob
jected to, and before wo had gono far au
induna camo to say that Umtassa was
coming and had sent a present of Kaffir

outsldo tho stuffy hut and waited.
At last a sort of procession camo wind

natives wearing a snuffbox and a catskin,
others draped In a blanket a la Jnltns

sort of woapon, with tho exception of a
big native, who carried Uimassa'a knob

of tho Black Rod came Umtassa, draped
In a bluo and white toga, with a blue

surprise, ho turned ont to bo a very im

Tho woman who is so "ufrald of elec
tricity" seems to got commonor overy
day. Sho took about flvo minutes to
board a horso car yesterday just because
thoro was an electric car directly bohind
it. The conductor encouragod her all
ho could from tho platform, but after
castiug startled glances at tho big car
standing on tho track sho would make
an ineffectual attempt to reach the steps
of tho car in front of it, aud when with
in a few feot of it she always dodged
back with little squeal, as If she
thought tho car would jump the track,
trolley and all, for tho sole purposo of
running her down. It was not until the
policeman saw tho dilemma and took
her by tho arm and lead her aboard that
she accomplished the feat.
Even then sho camo in muttering! "1
can't help it. I am scared to death by
electricity." It goes without tho saying
that sho was young and pretty. Other
wise no car would baro bothered to wait
for her, and sho might still bo dodging
out into the street aud back, In fact,
sho was so pretty that tho conductor
and policeman wero patient, and it is
surprising that some man on the car did
not dart into tbo street and fetch her
aboard in his arms. Sho was so scared
that she would not liavo minded such
gallantry, Boston Journal.
