Some of the Nutmo-r State's IVIilesproacl
iiiS Monarch of tho Woods.
Mark Twain once informed some
friends of his from Eimira. as thoy
crossed the ancient wooden bridge
-which spans the Connecticut river at
.Jlis city, that it was built entirely of
wood from tho famous Charter Oak.
Perhaps this was an exaggeration of
the humorist's, but even if so, there is
enough timber from the groat oak still
lying in the garrets of Hartford.
Wethersficld and Windsor to make
several gooJ-sized bridges. But the
Charter O.ik, aside from its historical
interest, was not tho only great tree
grown on Connecticut soil. There are
numerous trees of notable dimensions
in the State, many a one of which could
literally put the famous oak into the
shade. Such a one is the great elm
of Wethersficld, of which Henry Howe,
of New Haven, an authority on Ndv
England's famous trees, wrote:
So far as I know, it is the bully
im of the United States. I think all
others will have to throw up the sponge
Tho dimensions of this great tree
arc as follows: At 3 feet G inches
from tho ground the circumference is
22 feet 6 inches, or, following the de
pressions of the trunk, 26 feet 3 inches.
The circumference where the tree eng
ters the ground is 55 feet G inches.
There arc five main branches from the
trunk, the largest of which is 5 feet 7
inches in diameter, and the smallestis
3 feet The spread of the branches
from north to south is 150 feet, and
from cast to west 154 feet. An idea
of the size of this great tree may bo
had from tho fact that could four
trees of equal size be planted so that
their branches would touch, they
would occupy 2 acros and 16 square
rods of ground.
Tho history of the olm is interesting.
In the spring of 1749 John Smith, of
Wethers field, went to his pasture,
three miles south of tho village, after
cattle." When there lie got off his
liorse to get a whip, and seeing a
vigorous young tree in wet ground, he
pulled it up by hand, and took it
home on his liorse and set it out
where it now stands, in- the broa.l
street" of tho town in front of land
still owned by his descendant1!.
In Nor.h Haven o:i the Hartford
turnpike is an immense black walnut
which is 22 feet in circumference, and
is estimated to contain at least 15
cords of wood. Ujar tho center of
this town are two pine trees, which
were brought from the North and plan
ted by Minister Stiles. They arc now
very large trees. .A noticeable ob
ject on the road between North Haven
and Northford is a white oak, very
tall, and with a great spread of
S. J. Paddock, of Cromwell, has
near his residence a white oak the cir
cumference of which at the surface of
the ground is 24 feet, and at 10 feet
from the ground 14J feet The spread
of its branches is 95 feet. Mr. W. A.
Browning, of Griswold. boasts on his
farm a beautiful elm, 15 feet around
the trunk, and having a finely-arched
top, the spead of which is 84 feet. In
Salem there is a broad-spreadinjr black
oak that is over G feet in diameter at
the butt On the Holmes farm, on the
road along the Naugatuck river
above Watcrbury, are two fine
elms, one of which is not equaled
in the western part of the State.
It is 18 feet in circumference 3
feet up the trunk, and this is the
smallest place below tho branches.
Willington's largest tree is a chestnut,
which takes a measure twenty-five
feet long to go around it, and which is
130 years old. Among tho remarkable
trees cf Bristol is a black willow stand
ing near a mill-pond. It was planted
in 1814, and is seven feet in diameter.
Its height is forty feet, and its branches
extend sixty-two feet.
In the beautiful town of Woodstock
are three majestic elms, whose story
is a pretty one. O.i the very day of
the battle of Lexington a bride from
Windham took from her father's farm
these three trees, which she carried to
her new home in Woodstock, lahcd
behind her on tier horse's back There
they stand to-day, cherished by her
descendants, both as a tribute to Na
tional history and as representing also
a prominent era in the life ol the
Near Turkey Hill, in the town ot
Hiddam, stands a great pine tree,
which has many historical associa
tions. Over a century and a half ago
there lived there a family with twelve
children. These children planted tho
tree, near their homo. All of them
" "married later in life, and brought up
families. No loss than five of their
number fought in the war of the revo
lution, and one lived to one hundred

Since the slave trade was abolish

slaves has been maintained in Cairo.
The slave trade is still carried on sur
reptitiously to some extent, and efforts
aro especially made to procure inmates
for the harems of the wealthy. In
1886 170 female slaves, intended for
the harems, were rescued and provided
with a homo at tho asylum. Most of
these women were negresses, but some
of them were pretty Circassian an I
Abyssinian girls. All these women
are retained at tho asylum until they
receive some education, and are fitted
to support themselves by work provid
ed for them. During the year thirty
slave dealers were found guilty and
sentenced to prison.
Visit to a Camp of tho Gitanos lu the
Vicinity of Havana.
If ever in any land Gypsies may be
iaid to have duties, I am sure they
were wholly set aside during my three
days' sojourn in the Gitanos' camp
near Luyano. It was along in the
afternoon when I arrived with Ignacio,
one of their own men, and not much
time elapsed beforo the evening meal
was ready. A solid plank of roughly
hewn mahogany, twelve feet long, two
in width and fully three inches thick,
formed our table. Upon this was
Bprcad a crimson cloth of rich texture,
interwoven with gold and silver
threads, bearing a suspicious re
semblance to a pilfered Cardinal's
robe. At one end stood a
gorgeous spray of peacock's feath
ers, and set awkwardly upon
the oilier was one of those hideous
Spanish pcllejos, or entire wild boar
skins, filled with wine drawn at a
spigot in its savage mouth. This fierce
and suggestive arrangement remained
during my entire visit Besides these
queer ornamentations some odd ves
sels and relics were brought into re
quisition in my honor. Oao or two
silver tankards of great weight and
age made their appearance. A silver
bnwl that would hold a gallon sat in
the table's center. For plates, pol
ished brass and pewter dishes of every
imaginable design did service. Dirks
and little machetes were placed about
for knives. There were no forks, and
the spoons were of pewter and of
horn, shining like amber with their
generations of absorbed grease.
The meal was a dismally sober one,
despite my best efforts. The first flush
of cheery recognition having passed, I
knew the tawny crew were mentally
wondering about tho real motive of
my ques The food itself was good
enough for any hungry body, though
one might rationally hope to never
get worse. It consisted of ajiaco. or
Cuban all-sorts, rice, green and ripe
roasted plaintains, or bananas, boiled
sweet potatoes and tassajo do puerca,
or barbecued pork, roasted and smoked
with guava leaves over live embers;
and Ignacio's entire family of four

until the old boar s skin began to look

on a friendly footing. But I knew
gypsies too well to force terms of
geniality. I pleaded weariness and

of chatting and laughter. The honest

Tho day in the mountains was
grand one Though not four leagues
from Havana, evidence of country life
was as marked and characteristic as
though in tho very center of tho

Edgar L: Wakeman, in K Y. Mail and
TWO FAMOUS PIRATES.
The lawless Doeds and Boldness ol
IMorro and Jean Lafltte.
Ill the early years of this century,
when there were slave insurrections in
the West Indies, and wars for inde
pendence in Mexico, Central America
and South America, many people were
driven from their homes in these re
gions, and camo to New Orleans as a
place of refuge. Among them were
two brothers, Pierre and Jean Lalittc.
Thoy wero Frenchmen born in
Bayonne, but they had lived for sev
eral year3 in the West Indies. Both
wero tall, handsome men; but Jean
had the stronger character. For ti
time they carried on the trade oi
blacksmithing. Their shop stood on
St. Philip street, between Bour
bon and Dauphin. It was pulled down
only a few years ago. Bjld and eng
terprising in disposition, and of com
manding presence, tho two brothers
were fitted by nature to be leaders of
men. Jean, especially, was of an ap
pearance so striking that strangers,
meeting him on tho streets, tur.ied for
a second look at him.
At first they were only the agents
n New Orleans for smugglers who
brought merchandise and slaves
into the bays and bayous
along the Louisiana coast; but
it was not long bjforo they became
the chiefs of the most powerful or-
anization of lawless men that ever
existed in this country. In 1810 they
made their headquarters on the islands
at the entrance of the Bay of Bara-
aria, where they built a fort and a
illago. They obtained from tho
epublic of Carthagcna, in South
America, then at war with Spain
for its independence, letters o
marque which authorized them to
capture Spanish vessels wherever
found. They fitted out and armed
fast-sailing schooners, which were the
terror of the gulf. According to com
mon belief at the time, these vessels
were pirates, which did not hesitate to
pick up any merchant-ship they could
overhaul, no matter what flag it might
carry; but the Lafittes denied these
reports, and insisted that they were
honorable privatecrsmon, only attack
ing the ships -of Spain, as. under the
laws of nations, their letters of marque
gave them the right to do. That they
were smugglers, violating the laws ol
the United States, they did not deny.
In vain did Governor Claiborae is
sue proclamations, commanding the
people of Louisiana to arrest the La
fittes and their men. Jean and Pierre
came often to New Orleans, and read
the proclamations posted on the walls
of tho old Government building, on
the Place aux Amies. Onco there was
an effort made to arrest Jean, as he
was passing through a bayou with a
boat-load of smuggled goods. A party
of custom-house officers attacked him
from the shore. There was a light,
and Jean and his crew beat off thou
assailants. Afterward, Joan sent a
polite letter to the Captain of the custom-house
force, in which ho sai I: "I
am a man of peace, and do lot want
to fight; but I would havo you to
know that I am at all times ready to
lose my lifo rather than my goods."
