A writer in &. Nicholas, telli how
the life,ear is ?sed in ease of Bhipwreck
whea wSUHe^ii too high to reaeha
?wreck with the life boat.
T?3 rockot apparatus has been ar
wge-ipiaadliB firmly planted in the
md. It b a long tube, mounted on a
tripod, and is fired by a peroaasion cap.
About four hundred yards of very light
eerd are smoothly toiled at the base,
and one oad is attaohod to the rocket.
A small trigger is palled, and the rockot
leaps through the air, and over the dia
tressed ship; bearing the line with it.
Happily, it falls aoross the dock, and ia
hauled in bjsghe sailors on board. When
the shore end is reached, a blook, held
ing a stouter rope and a board contain
iag the following words, in English and
Frenoh, aro found attaohod.
'Make the tail of the block fart lothe
lowermast, woil up If the masts ore
gone, then fasten it to the best plaee
yen can fiadi Cast off small lino. Seo
that the rope in the blook runs free, and
show signal to the shore.'
The men on the beach wait patiently
until n rocket or light is displayed in
answer, and the life care is then dia
patched on its journey. It is susponded
19 Aha ropes by rings, and is hauled
acroea tbtf waters by the men on the
shore. In ten or fifteen minutes it is
alongside the tcssgI, and is filled with
wrecked people. Again a signal is dis
played, and the life car makes its return
journey?sometimes riding over the
waters; sometimes high and dry, and
sometimes submerged by the heavy sea.
It is so constructed that it contains
enough, air. to give four persons breath
for .at* least fifteen minutes, but other
wise it is not ventilated. More it comes
gliding ? nearer tho shore. 1 Steady f
the commandant cries to his men, who
are pulling with all thoir might and
main. /Steady V The ear touches the
sand, and is dragged out ef reaoh of tho
water. The trap-door is opened, and
three women?wet, cold, terrified, but
still alive?are safely landed. Only
thirty-one minutes have passed sinco
the first rooket was fired, and, thereafter,
lives aro saved at the rate ot over forty
en hour until not a soul remains on the
Natives at Lake Nyassa, Africa.
Tha chief at the lake an old man,

we had come, and sat down under a tree
?and he came to invite us lo take up
enr quarters with him. Many of tho
men aro very intelligent looking with
high foreheads and well shaped heads.
They show singular tasto J in the aston
iohly varied styles in which their hair is
arranged. Their bead necklacos are
really pretty specimens of work. Many
have the upper and middle, as wel 1 as
the lov/er part of tho ear, bored, and
have from three to five rings in each
ear. The hole in tho lobe of the ear is
large enough to admit ones finger, and
some wear a piooo of bamboo, about an
inch long in it. Brass and iron braoe
lets, elaborately figured are seen; and
some of tho men sport from two to eight
brass rings on each finger, and even tho
thumbs are net spared* They wear cop
par, brass and iron rings on their logs
arms many have their front teeth notch
ed, and some file them till they resemblo
the teeth of a saw, Tho uppor lip ring
of the women givcB them a revolting ap
pearanoe; it is universally worn in the
highlands. A puncture is made high
np In the lip, and is gradually onlarged
until tho- pekle can be inserted. Some
are very large. One we measured caus
ed the lip to project two inches boyoud
tho tip ef the nose; when the lady smil

One woman having a large tin pchle
with a bottom liko a dish, refused tu
sell It, because, sho said, hor husband
would heat her if she went homo with
out it. These rings are made ef bam
boo, of iron, or of tin. Their scanty
clothing-?the prepared bark of trees,
the skin of animals (chiefly goats), and
a thick streng cttton oloth, aro all of
native manufacture. They seem to bo
an industrious race.
The following is recommended as a
reolpt for making bologna sausage I?
Take eel skin and stuff it wi'.h ground
cat; season it, with Scotch, snuff and per
teimmon eil; lay* it on, a hog pen to dry,
?and then hang it up by tho tail in a
grocery for three months for flies to
&ive it the trade mark; oad then it is
ready for uao.
