The April number ot lilppineotf.i Is
very attractive nnd popular. The. con-
cluillnp pap:r on "Austndlan Scenes and
Adventures" Is remarknbly well written,
contains numerous nnd Instructive facts,
nnd Is handsomely illustrated. "The
Golden Eagle and Ills Eyrie," with lie
beautiful illustrations, will prove n ver.v
Interesting paper to moU readers. Mr.
Black's '-Three Feathers" Is decidedly tli
best serial novel that American reader
have to read In these days, and the April
Installment tirliuri the reader to a ver.v
fascinating point in the story. Then fol
lows an exquisite "Sonnet" bv F. A.
Hlllard. "Xlcc." by K. Davey, is a line
descriptive article, full of information
about that old city nnd Its ways, and Is
written In the author's well-known clear
and forcible style. "The ltakol, and
Sects in Kiifla" contains a good
deal ot Instruction principally of an ec
clesiastical and theological character.
"Eleanor's Career." by Ita Anlol Pro
kop, is short and interesting, with the
usual supposed pleasant ending. "Seven
ty Years Ago." by Ethel C. Gale,
breathes a delightful odor of the olden
times, and is very charming reading.
"A March Violet," by Emma I.azaru-.
is a very beautiful poem. Mr. T. Adol
pints 'Trollopc explains the question
"What Is a Conclave?" "Monoor Pacha.''
Is a short and strong poem by George 11.
Boker. "How Ham was Cured," by Jen
nlc Woodvllle, evinces much good humor
and philosophy. "Oi the Study ol
Shakespeare's Sonnets," by Kate Millard.
Is a very healthy piece of literary criti
cism that should prove as useful as It Is
valuable, and "Our Monthly Gossip,"
as usual, has some very charming selec
tions. iiAnrr.n'K MAiA7.iNt: ran Arnu.
Harper's Magnsine tor April oilers fresh
attractions to all clases of readers. It
opens with a beautiful narrative by Ml
Constance F. Woolson. amply and'tlnely
Illustrated, of a summer tour among tl c
mountains of Western North Carolina.
The grand and picturesque scenery on

always a prominent feature hi Harper's
descriptive articles.

Period, and containing accurate illustra
tions of the human Implements and ani
mal remains of that period.
The most Interesting and novel feature
of this Number Is the lion. S. S. Cox's
paper on American Humor, which is
characteristically Illustrated. .Mr. Cox
makes bis readers laugh while he Is tell
ing them uhy they laugh.
James Parton continues his scries of
papers on Caricature, dealing this month
with the "Caricature of the lieforma

the more Interesting, the writer's brilliant

from so many sources.
The celebration this month of the qua

Tho
next few months showed
me
strange things. On the same day that we
held the conversation above narrated, we
met n great ii-e In eoinliigdown the riv
er. The whole vast face of the stream
was black with drifting dead logs, broken
boughs, and great trees that had caved
in and been washed away, it required
the nicest steering to pick one's way
through t ie ril-dilm? rait, even Intiiedav-
time, when crossing Irom point to point;
aim ui iimui me iiimcuiiy was uugniiiv
Increased; every now ami then a huge
log, lying deeit in the water, would slid
denly appear right under our bows, coin
ing head-on; no use to try to avoid It
then, we could only stop the engines,
and one wheel would walk over the loir
Ironi one end to the other, keeping up it
iiiiiiiueruig racueiaim careening me tioat
in a way that was very iiiieoinl'ortalilu to

this log would lodge ami slay right across

ll.hlng, then, to get away from the ob
struction. We often lilt while logs, in

we were right on them; but a black log

All of n sudden, on a murky night, n
light would hop up, right under our
bows, almost, and an agonized voice with
tue naekwooih "whang" to it, would
wall out:
"Whai-'n the 'you goln' to ! Can't
