The Man-Kating Tree.
Dr, Jay writes from Madagascar to
the South Australian Register: If
you can imagine a pineapple, eight
feet high and thick in proportion,
resting upon its base, and denuded of
leaves, you will have a good idea of
the trunk, of the tree, which, however,
was not the color of an an an a, but a
dark, d'mgy, brown, and apparently j
as hard as iron. From the apex of
this frustrated come (at least two feet
in diameter) eight huge leaves sheer
to the ground, like doors swung hack
on their hinges, These leaves, which
were joined at the top of the tree at
regular intervals, were about eleven
or twelve feet long, and shaped very
much like the leaves of an American
agave or century plant. Thoy are
two feet through in their thickest
point and three feet wide, tapering to
a sharp point that looked like a cow's
horn, very convex on the outer (hut
now under surface) and on the under
(now upper) surface slightly concave.
Uhis concave face was thickly set with
strong thorny hooks like those lipon
the head of the teazle. The leaves,
hanging thus limp and lifeless, dead
green in color,4iad in appearance the
massive strength of oak fibre. The
apex of the cone was a round, while,
concave figure, like a smaller plate
set within a larger one. This was not
a flower, but a receptacle, and there
exuded it iiitb a clear treacly liquid
honey, sweet, and possessed of violent
intoxicating and soporific properties.
From underneath tho rim (so to
spetik) of the undermost plate a scries
of long, hairy, green tendrils stretch
ed out in every direction toward the
horizon. These were seven or eight
feet long, and tapered from four inches
to a half inch in diameter, yet they
stretched out stiflly as iron rods.
Ahovu these (from between the upper
nnd under clip) six while, almost
trarsparent palpi reared themselves
toward tin sky\ twirling and twisljug
with a marvellous incessant motion,
yet constantly reaching upward. Thin
as reeds, and frail as quills, apparent
ly, wcro yet five or six feet tall, and
were so constantly aud vigorously in
motion, with such a/subtle,sinuous,
silent, throbbing against the air, with
their suggestions of serpents iluycd,
yet dancing on their tails. My obser
vatious on this occasion were suddenly
interrupted by tho natives, who had
been shrieking around the tree with
their shrill voices, and chanting what
llcudrick told me were propitiatory
hymns to the great tree devil.
"With still wilder shrieks and chants
thcy^nowsurrounded one el the women
and . urged her with points of their
javolins until slowly, and with despair
ing face, she climbed up the stalk of
the tree and stood on the summit of*
tho^conc, the palpi swirling all about
her. "Tsik !" "Tsik !" (Drink '.drink 1)
cried the men. Stooping, she drank
of tho viscid fluid in the cup, rising
instantly again, with wild frenzy in
her face and convulsive cords in her
limhs. I3ut she did not jump down,
as she seemed intend to do. Oh, no !
The atrocious cannibal f ree, that had
beeil? so inert and dead, came to sud
do'ti savage life. The slender delicate
palpj with the iu ry of starved serpents;
quivered a moment over her head,
then, as if instinct with demoniac in
telligence, fastened upon licr in sud
den coils round and round her neck
and anus, and while her awful
screams and yet more awful laughter
rose, wildly to be instantly strangled
down again into a gurgling moan, the
tendrils, one after another, like great
green serpents, with brutal energy and
infernal rapidity, rose, contracted
themselves, and wrapped her about in
folds after folds, ever lightening with
cruel swiftness and savage tenacity of
anacondas fastening upon thoir prey.
It Whs the barbarity of the Laocuou
without its beauty?this strange hpr
ar'^Sf nuTuVd^^JHul how the great
leaves rose slowly and stillly, like the
arms of u derrick, erected th critic* ves
in the air, approached one another,
and closed about the dead and
hampered victim with the silent force
of a hydraulic press and the ruthless !
purpose of a thumbscrew. A moment
more, and while I could sec the bases
of theses great leaves pressing more
tightly toward each other from their
interstices, there trickled down the
stalk of the tree great streams of the
' viscid honey-like fluid, mingled hor
ribly with the blood and oozing viscera
of the victim. At sight of this the
savage hordes nround me, yelling
madly bounded forward, crowded to
the tree, clasped it, and with cups,
'?raves, hands and tongues, each one
obtained enough of the liquid to send
him mad and frantic.
The Hackmau in Court.
'Your name is?is?what?, asked
'Davey, sir?George Davey.'
'Ami you work at?what?'
'Ah?ha !' smiled his Honor, ac
quiring sudden interest; 'this is worth
twenty dollars to mc. You are one
of those men .who stand on tbe edge
of the walk at tho depots and shout
'1 lax !' at people.'

One seized my satchel, another
grabbed at my coat, ami another
pulled mc backward by the coat tails.

' 'Deed. sir. J ha in I.'
'Well, it's barely possible that I am
mistaken, but here's a charge that you
were lying on the walk drunk.'
'I wasn't, sir; 1 was sitting up along
side a house."
?That's too fine a point to argue.
Were you drunk ?'
Only sprung; sir; only a little
'That's just ns bad in the sight of
the law, and ) ought to fine you
' G rash us ? bull could hover pay
'No; my object would ho to keep
you in prison all your days.'
'Ob, let up on a feller,' pleaded the
prisoner. 'Tins \s the first time, and
it shall be the last. I've a large fami
ly, sir, and they need my wages to
get their bread.'
Hia Honor took a Ion'' time to
think, and then replied
'It is wrong to let you off. The
citizens will condemn me, and the
newspaper* will blow at me, hut I be
lieve I'll give you a show- You may
go, but I shall keep watch "of you.
You must mend your ways right off.
Instead of yelling 'Il?x !' at a man.
do you smile, and softly whisper: 'sir,
can I have tho pleasure of conveying
you to some designated point ?' Prom
ise me this?'
The prisoner promised, and was al
lowed to disappear, limping sadly with
a sore heel.
An Exciting Coat est.
Last winter two of my neighbors,
Mr. Miller and Mr. Grant, lost their
wives upon the same clay, and both of
the funerals took place three days af
terward, the interments being made at
the cemetery about the ?aiuc hour.
As the two funeral parties were com
ing out of the burying ground, Miller
met Grant, ami clasping each other's
hand they indulged in a sympathetic
squeeze, and the following conversa
tion ensued :
Miller.?"I'm sorry for you, It's nn
unspeakable loss isn't it?'
Grant*?'Awful ! She was the best
woman that ever lived.'
Miller.?'She was indeed. I never
met her equal. She was a good wife,
Grant.?'I was referring to my
wife. There couldn't he two best you
know/ - ^ijjfflpM ^ttt?
Miller.?* 1 es, I know. I know
well enough that your wite couldn't
hold a caudle to mine.'
Grant.?'She c o u 1 d n ' t, hey?
Couldn't hold a candle. Why she
could dance all round Mrs, Miller
every day in the week including Sun
days,' and tint half try! Sim was an
unmitigated iiiigci lake her any way
Miller.?'Oh, she was, was she?
Well I don't want to be personal but
if 1 owned a cross eyed angel with red
hair and no tee h, and as bony as an
omnibus horse, I'd kill her if she
didn't die of her own accord. Dance!
How could a woman dance that had
feet like candle boxes, and lament
(1 raut.?'Better be cross eyed than
wear the kind of a red nose that your
wife flourished around this coiniir ui
ty. I bet it'll hup* a hole through
the cofliu lid. And you pretend
you're sorry she's stepped out! But
you can't impose on me! 1 know
you're so glad you can hardly hold
in. She war* the chuck lc-hcadcdsl
woman that ever disgraced a grave
yard; that's what she was.'
Miller.?'If you abuse my wife, I'll
knock the head off of you.'
Grant.?'I'd like tu sac you try it.'
Then the two disconsolate widowers
engaged in a hand-to-hand combat,
and after fighting aw hile in the snow
the mourners pulled them apart just
as Mr. Miller was about to insist upon
his wife's virtues by biting off Miri
In these stagi ant times people
should be grateful for anything that
will provoke a smile. Two old color
ed ladies met recently iu a grocery
store in Columbia, und, while making
their purchases, of course "talked
'Well,' said one, 'Brother Goldin
lfcis Ibftt his house.' 'Why, how he
lose it ?' asked the other.
'Well, you know ho borrowed
money on ten that 'sociation, whatever
you call it, thai lends money (build
ing anil loan suggested u bystander);
that's it. Well, he got tie money
outcn him, and failed to pay it back,
you know, so you see this?what's
his name? (building and loan again
suggested)?comes down hot on
Brother Go ding, and takes tho place
bodaeioiisly from him.'
Up to this portion of the narrative
tho countenance of tho liateuibg shter
hud been expressive only of a pdlito
interest* ond mournful Christian
sympathy in the misfortunes of Broth
er Goldin; but when the speaker went
on to any: 'And now Brother Goldiu
wants wc members of the church to
Hing in and pay the debt for him/ n.
fearful change came over that intelli
gent face?her eyes flashed fire.
'Jle do/ fte cried emphatically,
placing her hands upon her hips, and
striking a .determined attitude,'he

one thing: I yearns all I git, and cf
Bill Malono never gits paid for that
bouse tell he gits it outen Marider?
he'll never git it while his head's hot.
Whose Bill Malone, I'd like to know/
she continued, lashing herself into a
fury, 'that he can't wait for his money
as well as other people? He's some
hereticle old ocbeliever, or 'ho
wouldn't, be so hnrd down on a merer
her of the church; but he'll brile for
it hereafter, that's one comfort/ And
gathering up her bundles?not in her
indignation forgetting one?she tossed
her head and marched out of the store.
When last heard from she was still
abusing 'old Bill Malone/
How to Calculate Interest and What it
The follow)ng rules are so simple
and so ti uc according to all business
usage, that every banker, broker,
merchant or clerk should post them
up for reference. There being n6
such thing as a fraction in it, there is
scarcely any liability to error or mis
take. By no other arithmetical pro*
cess can the desired information ha
obtained by so few figures:
?Six . per cent?Multiply any given
days of interest desired, separate the
right hand figure and divide by six;
the result is the true interest on such
number of days at six percent.
Eight per cent?Multiply any given
amount for the number of days upon
which it is desired to ascertain the
interest, and divide by forty-five, and
the result will be the interest of such
sum for the time required, at right
What it will do. Ifn mechanic or
clerk saves o:dy 2} cents a day, from
the time he is twenty-one until ho is
threescore and ten, the aggregate,
with interest, will amount to 82,900;
and a daily saving of 97} cents reaches
the important sum of859,000. A six
pence saved daily will provide a sum
of 87,000?sufficient to purchase* a
good farm. ' v 1 '
j There arc few employers'who can-'
I not save daily, by abstaining from the
use of cigars, tobacco, liquor, etc.,
twice or ten times the amount of the
six cent piece. Every person should
provide fcr old age, and the man in
business who can save a dollar a day
will evcntunlhj find himself possessed
of over $100,000.
'It isn't so very late?only a quarter
of twelve.' 'How dare you sit there
and tell that lie? I was awake whon
you came in, and looked at my watch
?it was three o'clock. 'Well, isn't
three a quarter of twelve.
