There was only one eat at^Narimima. whieh Loheir, the ehief, h.nl^obtaimsl in trade from Home of M eoast^trilM-h, and the animal was a Kreat Mi
Karlyin the iniiriiiiiK the MDMllMM^the houses would lie swept by the women,^ami was as hard ami elean as a table.^The Papuan women are iluely featured,^ami many of the children are truly hand^^some. VkTc. however, is merciless to the^women, ami when the old eroiies nit in the^sun kneadiiiK elay, or IxutiiiK halls into^shapely potH or dishes, their lieails shaven^with fragments of liottle glass and every^Imnr of their emaciated bodies showing^through their wrinkled skins, they are^venerable pictures of ugliness.
Tin-old ehief, Loheir, was the most in-^terestiiiK mall ill the village. He was SO^years ohl, Htout and br^KKl-shouldere^l,^ami ho well eovered wan his Issly with^scars from the many iKittles in whieh la-^hud fought that by plaeiiiK his hand upon^him in the darkest night Mr. Denton Im-^eaim- sure of Iiim identity. Loheir'* faee^was dark, but his look was intelligent; his^manner was that of a horn gentleman,^modest and unassuming.
Onetlay, after the two hrothers had^been ill Nariuunia a good while and had^learned enough of the luliguugc to talk^freely, LolM-ir ^^ume to them, showing hy^his actions that he had something iiii|h^r-^talit to say. He Ix-gmt I .y MM1 If tMry^liked the t'oyara men and their country.^When told that the white men had Im-cii^treated very kindly, and that the t Oyara^country was as fertile and as boaMiful as^any they had wen, he MMMMl pleasisl.^Then |m^ conversation took this course:
Isit warm ami eomfortahlc at America^as at Narimima V^ ,%
^Notalways; sometimes it is very cold.
Arewhite people any happier than^t'oyarasV
Perhapsnot so happy. 1 heir land is^not so productive ami they have to work^very hard.
An-white men very numerous
An- white women as handsome as^white men 7
IKithey wear the same kind of^.lollies.
*'No;they wear pttMMMi
*l)owhite men have one wife, or^many '.^*
Haveyou a wife in Amerieat^^^No.
Howdo you like the t'oyara girls ^^^Some of them an- very haiidHomo and^pleasing.
Wouulyou like to got married hi New
Well,that depends on eireunistaiieeH.

Yo^,Home fully an handsome'
Howiiiueh do you |^ay for a wife in^America'.'
Someare very CKpeilHive and other*^very cheap. Generally the MMW coiiich^after they are married. The parents of^some girls are ho anxious to dis|m^sc of^their daughters tluit they buy husl winds^for them.
Theehief laughed and rolhil on the^ground.
How tlo the girl* of Narimima please
TIh-v win' very boomm*.
Would you marry uny you have seen^la-re^^. . .
Hardly. You wi', Loheir. we came a^long, long distance to got to Nuriiitiina,^and as we an- very rich and very good-^looking, w^- ought to have the ln-st the^country affords.''
I'pHtarUil Loheir with a whoop and a^yell that ih-Ikmh! through the town and^was oif. ...
Thetwo brothers had a laugh at Ins^curious (jiiestioiiitiKH ami at the manner^he left them, but. thinking no more aliout^it, went on with their work.
Forseveral dayn tin- chief was not to he^seen. He hail irone away, to In- hack soon.
Oneafternoon, an the two white men^were preparing their flintier, they heard^tittering ^'^1 giggling. IxM.king around^they saw Loheir in the midst of a group of^girls. Home twenty in MMMMMr. A broad^smile light**! up die chief* dusky face,^and many of the girln, of great beauty,^were laughing anil peering at the white^men over each other** ^bauldrMi They^all wore Mowers in their hair anil hands of^green leave* adorned their arm* and^ankle*. Each maiden had on her best^ix'tticoat, ami *ome won- necklaces of^dogs' teeth ami feather ribbon*.
Thechief came forward and addis-ssod^the ^tranger*; he had been a long way,^had vi^iti-d the largest town* ill the coun^^try anil had hnuight hack with him the^most iM-aiitiful women In-longing to the^tribe. He ho|ied each of the brothers ;^would Helect one that pleased him, marry |^her and nettle down among the t'oyurie*.^The white men were rich, they could i^easilv buy a nie^- ganlen, all tlie men in^Karinumu would help them build a house,^where the white men and their childn-ii^could live ami be happy. TIk- parents of^some of the girls had come, tin^. and were^standing in the buc-kgrouud.
AnOfTerlng to HU Country.^During tlie war. at a time of great ili-^prcssioii, it is Hitid. write* t'harle* Dudley^Warner, in Har/trr'* MkpMMft that a pub^^lic meeting was called in Oneida county,^Kew York, f'wr tlie purpo*e of stimulating^the war spirit. It was a matter of general^notoriety at that time that there was a de-
cidd |M^litieal diiutgn-emcut ln-iw^s-ii Roh-^eoe ( oukling and his nephew,Morris Mill^^er, and they warmly opimwciI etM-h other'*^vii-ws and measim-s. Tlie meeting was a^very fervent one, and in tlie course of it^greut enthusiasm wan uroils*si for tin-^more vigorous proMs-ution of the war. The^h|teaker* vied with each other in tla-ir de^^votion and ^elf-^acrill^-e. ^ ^ne siM-aket-^offered to coiitrilMitc a large sum of mon^^ey, another and another offered an ill-^creu^e^l amount. An ag*-d man arose and^with a ttrokell voice declared dial In- hail )^no money to give, lint that he had a young^son whom la- would dedicate to the ser^^vices of his country- Another father anise^ami with tear* in hi* eyes pledged the^same sacrifice.
Tlieenthusiasm was at it* height, and^tin- house was carried away by the spirit^of sclf-surrcndcr. when Mr. Miller arose^and eloquently cxpn-XHcd his ih-votiou to^the i-aiiHc. ^I have.^ he said, in thrilling^to .es, ^no money to give, but I oiler to^my country my uncle, Kosihm- ^ oukling!^^There wan dead silence for a moment,^ami t hen suppressed laughter, anil then a^roar that shook the house. lliisiuess was^resumed, the speaking went on. oilier^pledges wen- made. Hut every now ami^then soiiiclssly would breakout in a titter,^^He offer* hi* uncle, KftsciM- ( oukling,^^ami tli^- fancy would tickle somclnnly else,^until thi^ whole house was con vulseil again^and again with merriment.

Thetrial of smokeh-k* |Miwder by the^llelil artillery of the Twelfth Saxon corps^recently in its uiauii-uvn-s before the king '^of Saxony, at /.eithain-Kinli-rau, was per- :^haps the most conclusive yet attempted.^After several hours of eauiiouailing. the^uir over the battle ground was perfectly^clear. Not even a pull' of smoke showed^itself. The new |niwtler. however, n^^uuin-s bronze cannon ami all tin- sti-cl^guns will have to go.
