THE HICHEST BODY OF WATER ON THE
an r.KTEnrniSLva ametucak who nosr.
to Titn 3AMn i.nvr.j..
According to :i correspondent of
the Philadelphia Press, one of the
monuments of the spirit of Anieri-'
can energy nnd enterprise, albeit
embodied in a man of doubtful re
putation, is tho railroad that con
nects Mollcndo, a port of Peru, witli
Lake Titicaca. This lake is the
highest body of water in the world,
lying in a great basin between two
ranges of the Continental Cordilleras,
lf,000 feet above the sea. On the
bosom of this wonderful lake is the
island--the Eden of the Western
World where tradition says Maneo
Capac and Mnma Capac, the Adam
and Eve of the Inca race, were born.
From thit little garden sprang a
race that has never been surpassed
in industry and will sways furnish
the most interesting topic of study
antiquarians nnd philosophers have
ever known. Here arc the magnifi
cent temples and palaces which
l'rescott describes with such a vivid
lien and which FisKirro stripped of
The man who built the railroad
was Harry Meiggs, the partner of
Ralston, the California banker, who
drowned himself in the Golden Gate ;
the friend of Flood, O'llrien,
Mackay, Sharon, and one of the
princes of the golden era of '49.
Bret Hartc has written of him, and
Mark Twain has used him as a text.
He committed forgeries in San Fran
cisco years ago, and when his crime
was discovered, took a boat and
rowed out into the bay, as Ralston
did twenty years afterward, but, in
stead of jumping overboard, he
climbed upon the deck of a schooner,
purchased her, and sailed away
from the scene of his remarkable
career. He went to Chili first, and
then came to Peru, bringing much
of his wealth and all of his irresisti
ble energy which he applied to the
difficulties that had staggered this
country, and overcame them. From
Ecuadaor to Patgonia, through Peru,
Bolivia and Chili his enterprise ex
tended, and the result is a scries of
railroads at right angles with the
coast, connecting the interior of the
country with the seaports, and giv
ing the estates and the mines in the
mountains, tho sugar haciendas and
the nitrate beds easy outlets to the
ocean. He sent back money to
California to reimburse those who
lost by his forgeries, with good in
terest, but remained there till he
died, one of the richest, most in
fluential and famous men on the
A CONGO BURIAL SACRIFICE.
In his new book on the Congo
country Henry M. Stanley tells
this story of the human butcheries
perpetrated to appease the gods
when a chief dies. The victims are
slaves taken in battle or bought for
the purpose of religious butchery :
The mourning relatives finally se
cured fourteen men from the in
teiior, and, being notified by the
villagers that the execution was
about to begin, M. Vangcle and his
friend proceeded with a few of their
men to view the scene. They found
quite a number of men gathered
around. Tho doomed men seen
were kneeling with their arms bound
behind them in the neighborhood of
a tali young tree, near the top of
which the end of a rope had been
lashed. A number of men laid hold
of the cord and hauled upon it until
the upper part of tho tree was bent
like a bow. One of the captives
was selected, and the dangling end
of the rope was fastened round his
neck ; the tree sprang several inches
higher, drawing the man's form up,
straining the neck, and almost lift
ing the body from the ground. The
executioner then advanced with his
short broad-bladed falchion, and
measured his distance by stretching
his weapon from the position he in
tended to strike across the nape of
the neck. He repeated this oper
ation twice. At the third time he
struck, severing tho head clean
from the body. It was Whipped up
in the air byf tho spring of the re
leased tree' and sent rebounding
several ynrds away. The remaining
captives were despatched one after
another in like manner. Their heads
were unfleshed by boiling, that tho
skulls might decorate the poles
around the grave. Tho bodies were
dragged away and thrown into the
Congo ; tho soil saturated with the
blood was gathered up and buried
with the defunct chief.
WAITING TO BE SWINDLED.
The people ready to be swindled
are far moro numerous than tho
swindles. One man offers to fur
nish counterfeit currency at a low
rate. A dozen tempted by their
greed sond forward their money and
get back in duo time their boxes
filled with sawdust. One man pre
tends to have drawn a prizo in a
lottery. He will flud a score quick
to trust him with their cash in the
vain hope of getting something for
little or nothing, It is a fortunate
provision of nature that there arc so
few rogues; for if they boro any
proportion to the number of dupes
society would go to pieces.
In Philadelphia the other day n
man pretending to bo a sailor went
into a baker'3 shop and asked for a
person for whom he had bought
some jewels in a foreign land, "tie
was exhibiting tho casket when in
rushed an alleged pawnbroker, who,
pronouncing the jewels worth $G0O,
offered $150. The sailor demanded
8250, and the pawnbroker went
away Tor the money. The sailor
soon after departed, when the pawn
broker coming back upbraided the
baker for letting the man go and
took Ills departure, telling the
baker to advance the sailor 8100
and he would call and take the
treasures off his hands. The sailor,
of course, came back and said he
had been frightened away because
the goods had been smuggled. Fear
of arrest induced him to offer the
jewels to the baker for $80. He
eagerly accepted and that was tho
last he saw of the money, sailor or
pawnbroker. The "jewels" were
worth fifty cents. Detroit Free
