A traveler tells its somellilii of the
singular weapon ttwd by the natives ol
Aiiitrulla. the booinerani;. lie saw theut
used by the natives. They ranged from
two feet to thlrty-elijht Inches In length,
anil were of vurioiin chape, ull curved a
little, und looking, as he described them,
like a wooden new moon. They wen:
made of a dark, heavy wood, and weighed
from one to three pound.'. In thickness
they vary from half an Inch, and taper to
a point at each end.
One ot the natives picked tip the piece
of wood, und, poising it an Instant, threw
It, giving it a rotary motion. For the
Ilrst one hundred leet or more it went
straight ahead. Then it tucked to the
left and roai: slightly, still rotating rap
idly. It kept this lattercourso for a hun
dred feet more, perhaps, but oon veered
to tlie left again, describing u broader
curve, and a moment later fell to the
earth six or eight feet iu front o the
thrower, liaylni: described nearly a circle

Another native then took tlie same
boomerang and c.nt it, holding It with
the Fame grip. It took the same course,
hut made broader curves, and as it came
round the black caught it handsomely in
lil right hand.
Another native next threw it. and
lodged it ou the ground about twenty
feet behind him, alter It had described a
circle ot two hundred yards or upward.
Alter hlin thev nil tried it, ami but one of
them failed to bring the weapon back to
the spot where they stood.
Curnboo, a native, then selected from
the heaps of boomerang another one,
and cast it with a sort ol jerk. It llew
very quickly tor 40 or 50 yatds, whirling
like a top. Then It darted Into the air,
mounting fully one hundred feet, and
came over our head?, where It sestned to

contemptuous glance at my improvement
threw it down and exctaimeu :

The others then looked at It cautiously,
but It was a bale budgery also to them.

The death of Thomas Jefferson Kan

the funeral obsequies of his wife, which
has few parallels as an excmplicatiou of

or rive years ago, and lier remains were
escorted to Moutlcello by an immense
concourse of white), together with along

A follower of tlie luiubV"
A gentleman who was passing, tells us
that In his whole life, extending over sev
imtv rears, he never witnessed anything
en tniiclilnu-. When the last notes died
itwav amid tho oaks of Moutlcello, there
was not a dry eye iu the vast assemblage,
tKew York Tribune, lcth.l
The death of this much talked-of sculp
tor, which was announced by t able, U
not to be reckoned an Irretrievable los
for Art. Doubtless, In nonie quarters, It
may be looked upon as one more great
calamity tor his nation, like thoss which
have bcrelt her of lteguault, or Corel, of
Millet, of llarye even, but the general
voice, which In the end ipeaks true, and
gives the note to fume, Will never reckon
him among the splendor of France. He
was the product of the Hecond Empire,
and he represented all that was vulgar,
meretricious, and loud In the soeiety
created by Unit vulgar pair, Nnpoleou
HI. and his Eugenie. ...
Hia art It all sound and fury, hut In so
ber sadness, It signifies nothing. He en
joys Ihu human form, but In his treat
ment of It lie lowered It to the level of
the animals. He could not, perhaps,
even do so much as that, for the animals
are clean and graceful, but Ills women
are of the earth, earthy; they arc daugh
ters ol the clay, and leein to be painfully
wrlgKllmr. out of the unclean. Carpeaux
could not even make Fauns nnd Satyrs
these harmless wood people.ln his hand
were Parisians who knew the slums ami
liked them. His group, "The Dance,"
which he had made for the new Opera
house and it was quite worth v of it Is
not the "Dance"' ot the poets, it is not
"llpjperus and his ilniiKlitrra three
That rang about the golden tree,"
nor the Nymphs on Olympus, nor any
Ideal dance whatever. It Is not even the
ballet in IU poetic development In the
movements ot an Ellsler, a Taglioui, or a
Cerito ; it Is the mad capering of tipsy,
naked tlsher-womeu over a lucky haul.
It certainly was not In Paris that peo
ple were going to be shocked with tho
bight of naked women iu pictures or
sculptures, and it cannot he denied that
jieople were shocked by Carpeaux's
work. What was the reason? Simply
because there was enough sense of what
Is the true province ol urt, which Is one
with poetry, lett in the world to see that
Carpeaux had violated all the conditions
by which Art holds her place ou the steps
of God's throne. Here was neither beauty
of form, nor grace of motion, nor ex
pression of character, nor thought noth
ing but the savage energy of brutal life.
There was not even passion ; one might
say there was not even lust. It was too
vulgar even for that distinction. As ev
erybody knews. this statue, alter it had
stood for some time In its destined place
In front of the open lions', against one
ol the piers, was, by whom or from what
motive could never be known, dlsllg
tired by a bottle of Ink which was thrown
at It one night. In the morning all Paris
was in au uproar. Alcibladrs' dog's tall
was as nothing to It. Even the viola
tion of the Hermes sank Into Inslgnlll
catiee II oue could believe the newspa
pers. The incident set a hundred Indus
tries at work. Pictures of the statue
with Its stains were produced by every
process known to human Ingenuity.
Certain pliotoexaphers made a small for
tune by the monopoly of the
right purchased from Carpeaux
to make pictures of the statue
with the stains. Pictures without llio
stains did not sell at all. Casts ot the
group In plaster, at which swarms of ap
prentices were kept busy night and day
shying bottles of Ink anil
they learned to hit the mark
with amazing dexterity were sold not
only in the shops, but in the street, and
for these also Carpeaux's authorization
made a profitable monopoly. Unfortu
nately, if people hinted that perhaps the
artNt himself shied the ink-bottle by
proxy, there was nothing iu the charac
ter ot the man to make it Impossible.
The charlatanism of Carpeaux's urt came
from out his character. He did not love
his art for its own sake, nor for what he
could win for tlie world of Imagination,
and poetry, and love by her aid, but
only at least it always seemed so for
the attention he could draw upon lilui
