.His Wit Saved Him.
In the early Indiana days, when
both judge and attorney literally
''rode tho circuit," a newly elected
. judge, noted for his la?k of personal
beaut}', was plodding along on
horseback between two county
scats one fine summer day. Sud
denly he was confronted by a hunt
cr, who unslung his squirrel rifle
from his shoulder and ordered the
horseman to dismount. Somewhat1
startled by this peremptory com
rmand, thu jurist began to remon
strate. He was quickly cut short,
however, by the remark: "It's no>
use talking. I long ago swore that
af. ? ever met a homelier man than
Tam I'd shoot him on sight."
The judge,sizing up the situation,
promptly got off his horse. Fold
ing his arms he faced h Lo assailant
and said, "If I am any homelier,
-than you are, for heaven's sake do
shoot, and be quick about it." .
Needless to say> his wit saved
him. ? .

SC?I?EP fY^THE POPE
Ons Occasion When Kaiser Wilhelm
Loaf His Self Possession.
Kaiser Wilhelm, always a self
possessed character, was even as a
lad equal to almost any emergency,
hut thero was one timo in his life
Itarhen his aplomb failed him com
pletely, and that was when he was
received in a private audience by
Leo XHT. Strange to say, the self
possessed young emperor felt com
pletely overawed by tho presence of
the holy father and his entourage.
A gentleman who was present and
witnessed the whole scene said that
a student coming before a row of
examiners or a culprit appearing
before a court could not have look
ed moro frightened than did the
emperor when ho stood between the
folding d?ura o? tho audience hall
as they opened before him.
As .he caught sight of the Pope
in white garments, stiff, immobile^
almost unearthly, surrounded by
half a dozen cardinals in red robes,
who were looking at him curiously,
his half powerless right hand, in
which he held his present for the
pope, a gold snuffbox, with his own
portrait framed in rubies, shook
so violently that he dropped the
treasure. Thc monsignoro who was
nearest, in stooping to pick it up,
bumped his head against that of tho
emperor, who was similarly engaged,
and the shock so unnerved his
majesty that ho quite forgot tho hel
met which he held in his left hand
and which fell to the ground in its
At lsst everything was put
straight. His holiness was still
quietly smiling his everyday smile,
and W?liam advanced a few steps
to deliver' his little speech, which
he did with a sulky voice. He look

from the awkwardness of somebody
else, and they say that 24 hours
afterward his brow remained as
closely knitted as those of a bear.-!
In the arms of the archbishop of
Canterbury there appears a decora
tion somewhat like a clergyman's
collar with an extended linen band,
but it is intended to represent a nar
row, circular strip ot white wool
supposed to be shorn from the
lambs bf St. Agnes at Borne, which
was worn round tho shoulders, and
had two such hanging bands, one be
fore and tho other behind, while the
crosses upon it are thought origi
nally to represent thepins by which
it was fastened to the vestment.
This precious strip was called a pall
or pallium, and was peculiar to
archbishops conferred on them by
the pope, and, like most papal gifts,
of a high market value.
Expensive as was its possession,
it was by no means a mere luxury,
for by the decretals of Pope Gregory
no act of an archbishop was valid
without it. If he had not received
it, he could not confer orders, con
secrate churches or summon a coun
cil. The email stan, tho head of
which appears inside the half circle
formed Tby the pallium as it falls
over the shield, is.the crozier, a staff
with a cruciform Head that is borne
by or before an archbishop alone,

merely denotes the offics of a
bishop, is often mistakenly called a

A Wonderful Steam Engine. . ;
In lb74^D< A. A. Buck, an in
genious mechanic of Worcester,.
Mass., constructed- a perfect steam
engine of such lilliputian dimen
sions as to gain for its maker tho
plaudits of the world. To go into
exact details the engine, boiler,
pumps, governors and all were so
exceedingly small as to only occupy
a space seven-sixteenths of an inch
in diameter, or about tho area of an
old fashioned silver three cent piece.
It was only five-eighths of an inch
nigh, yet it contained 148 distinct
S?rts, nearly all of which were silver
nd gold. It was held together by
52 screws, the smallest being but
one-hundredth of an inch in length.
The engine had all tho valves, gear
ing, etc., to bo found on the ordi
nary horizontal engine. Three
drops of water filled the boiler.
The engine weighed but 15 grains
when clear of tho base plate. The
diameter of tho cylinder was but
one-sixteenth of an inch; length of
stroke, three-fifty-seconds of an

AN AFRICAN HEADDRESS.
Grotesque Knob Worn by Males of
the' Mashlkolumwe Tribe.
-The Mashikolumwe are as savage
a tribe and as far removed from any
form of civilization as can be found
in central Africa. Probably justly
they have a reputation for treach
ery. Though the women wear as
much, if not more, clothing than is
customary " in central Africa, tho
men in nearly all eases go absolutely
naked. Every man carries a bundle
of long handled barbed assagais.
Nearly every man has dressed, or,
to describe it more accurately,
forced, his hair and scalp into the
knob .or spike which is peculiar to
this tribe. Many wear the full
headdress, which looks like a long,
straight and flexible wand starting
from the back of the head. One of
these headdresses I measured and
found it to be 4*5 inches long, meas
uring from the skin of tho head up
ward. The headdress is made of
hair and grease, with a finely shaved
piece of sable antelope's horn inside
to stiffen it.
In making it the skin of the head
io drawn back until a mass of flesh
end skin protrudes two or three
inches from thc back of tho head.
This causes great pain at first. One
whom we asked replied, "We bear
thc pain because of the beautiful
result." On this artificially made
base of soft flesh is built an upi ight
cone, gradually tapering to less than
one inch in diameter and prolonged
to at least three feet in height. The
straight upright piece is quite flexi
ble and waves in the wind.
The completed headdress takes
about three years ^t? make, and the
happy possessor of a 45 inch spike
attached to his scalp takes great
can; of it. When he sleeps in a
hut, thc flexible end is tied by a
string to the roof; when sleeping
in the open, a long handled assagai
is stuck firmly in thc ground at the
man's feet, and the end of the head
dress 4?* tied by a long string to tho
shaft of thc assagai, so keeping it
off the ground. ,
In spite of the time and trouble
taken to make these headdresses,
some of the men offered to cut them
off and sell them for a few yards of
calico. I had hoped to buy Gome
on our return journey, but unfortu
nately passed south, just west of the
Mashikolumwe country, and saw no.
more of this peculiar headdress.
Though not tall, the Mashikolumwe
are well made and active and, judg

man coming hundreds of miles to meet
her lover-only to find herself the
victim of a oruel hoax. The informa
tion comes from a reliable source, but
no names were given.
It seems that a young man ia Co
lumbia and s young woman in Chicago
have been corresponding for some
time, having made this long distance
acquaintance through the medium of
a newspaper advertisement.
Proposals of marriage were made.
The young man represented that it
would be too costly a trip for him to
go to Chicago and briug bia bride here,
so ihn bfido-prospective caine herc io

When she arrived, no lover met her
at the station, so she drove tc thc
street address given in a letter from
bim. When she arrived at her desti
nation, she found herself in a squalid
negro settlement, and the house with
the number for which she was looking
was the worst of tho lot.
The truth broke upon her then.
Her finance had been using an assum
ed name and she had been made a fool
of. It is said that she is young and
good looking. Detectives are working
on the case with the hope of discover

Why Napoleon Failed.
A reoent book, written by an erm*
neut English statesman, Lord Rose
bery, upon Napoleon the Qreat, is
profoundly interesting in its sympa
thetic, and yet judicial, estimate of
the most marvelous of modern con
querors. Napolesu appears, to this
latest biographer, so great in his
energy, his intellect, his genius, that
he "enlarges the scope of human
achievement." He "fought'thc Aus
trians once for five consecutive days,
without taking off his boots or closing
his eyes"; he would work for cigh
teen hours at a stretch; "his genius
was as unfailing and supreme in the
art of statesmanship cs in the ?rt
war, and he was as much tho first ruler
as thc first captain in the world."
"Ordinary measures do not apply to
him; wo soem to be trying to span a
mountain with a tape." The conclu
sion arrived at is that Napoleon was
the largest personal force th'at has
?ever come into tho modern European
Why, then, did his career end in de
feat and exile? Napoleon's own say
ing is a revelation on this point. "I
am not a man like other men." he as
serted; "the laws of mortality could
not be intended to apply to me." He
believed that religion was essential to
the nation he ruled, but not to him
self. He was not antagonostic to it;
he patronized it rather. But for a
?ian as consciously great as he to obey
the Ten Commandments when they
ran oounter to his own views, appear
ed to him absurd. Humility was in
his eyes no virtue, but un entire mis
Yet humility alone could have sav
ed him. The dangerous, the fatal
element in Napoleon's nature was
ambition. In youth/he was pheno
messily s&ue and weii-balanoed. But
his little knowledge of his own pow
ers unbalanced him; nothing seemed
impossible; nothing seemed as impor
tant as his own destiny; "the intellect
and energy were still there, but as in
earioature; they beoame monstrosi
ties." Then came the inevitable col
lapse of insane and impossible ambi
tions; and at forty-six, the man who
had dreamed of governing a world be
came a captive exile. His conquests
left no mark; the kings ho mado lost
their thrones; France was beggared
and exhausted by him; and the great
est gift:, ever bestowed upon a human
soul since the days Caesar* thus failed
to help forward the world.
If any one was ever great enough to
do without goodness, Napoleon was
the man. The result of his experi
ment ought to be enough to satisfy
anybody. There is no need for small
er men to Repeat the test; it stands as
a finality. Plain, simple goodness is
the necessity cf great souis as well'as
lesser ones; duty is the supremo law,
God, the almighty ruler. Napoleon
failed not beeause he was not great
enough, but because he was not good
enough. "Not by might, nor by power,
but my spirit, saith the Lord of
hoBtB." That truth stands;-?and we
msy stand or fall by it, as we choose.
