A CAKGfO OF SLATES.
A MERCHANT'S STORY OF A MEETING
IN THE SOUTH ATLANTIC.
A Small Bout Loaded with Suffering Ne
gro Children?Brutality of a Portuguese
Dago?A Captain's Unavailing "Wrath?
Only Twenty-Eight Years Ago.
A merchant said the other lay, "I
never see a colored crew with a white
mate going down the pier that I don't
think or. iny first trip to Rio and the slaves
I saw on the way there. It was in the
early part of 1819. It's hard to realize it j
now, but the slave trade was then a most
profitable business in spite of its difficult
ies. The vigilance of the British cruisers j
had driven the infamous Dagoes who
manned the slavers into all sorts of de
vices to escape detection, but the favorite
method just then seemed to he to resort to
small schooners and coasters which, on
account of their size, could be run up the
small creeks, where the slave marts were
located in Africa, out of sight of the
cruisers anil thero loaded safely and
quickly, and then sent to sea at the first
moment when the coast was clear. A
little schooner of some thirty tons once
escaped a British frigate In a calm by get
ting out sweeps which the slaves were
compelled to work.
"In this voyage I'm telling you about we
had a fine run of luck, crossing the dold
rums and catching the southeast trades
much sooner than we had expected. Al
though-we there found the wind light,
every one was in good spirits over the run.
It was just after dinner one day, when a
man who was seizing some new chafing
gear on to the foretopmast rigging in the
wake of the yard* hailed the deck, and
said that a small boat seemed to be adrift
about three points on the weather bow,
and that a'signal of distress was flying
FILLED WITH NEGRO CHILDREN.
"As soon as attention was attracted to
it, it could be plainly seen from the
weather rail. The captain examined it
closely with a glass, and told the second
mate that there were three men on it
alive, and that there seemed to be others
lying under the thwarts. The boat ap
parently contained the last of some ship
wrecked crew, and our captain at once
heided the ship up so as to bring the small
boat a little on the lee. We were running
about five or six knots an hour, and in the
course of fifteen minutes we had ap
proached so near the drifting boat that it
could be very plainly seen with the naked
eye. The captain had been growing ex
cited as he looked at it, and finally put
down his glass and said with an oath that
the boat wa3 from the wreck of a slaver,
and was filled with negroe3. He declared
he would hang the white men to the yard
arm. Just then one of the owners of the
ship who, unfortunately, was making the
voyage with us, put his hand on the cap
tain's arm and said something that made
the captain bite his lip, but no more was
said about the hanging.
"It was probably half an hour from the
time we saw the boat until one of the
white men in it caught the end of a heav
k ing line and had dropped the boat under
? the stern of our ship, where she towed
?kvery comfortably. A more pitiful sight
Mieter met the eye than the people of that
?fchip's*boat. Half-tho thwarts had been
IKfffcen out. and between and under those
ing from about S to 14 years of age. The
oldest of them were girls. All were stark
naked, and apparently more then half
dead. It is useless to try to tell you how
rduch their sufferings had affected them.
Some of them never looked up when the
talking was going on, while others moaned
aloud. One of tho white men asked for
supplies. He said he wasn't begging; he
was ready to pay. He hoped we would let
h?ii have water. At that word many of
the children raised themselves up with
eager looks.for he talked in Portuguese and
they were accustomed to it enough to
know what was said. They began to talk
all at once, but the man picked up a big
blacksnake whip and then they cowed
down instantly. But there were throe or
four of the children who were unable to
raise themselves up or to realize that they
wore near- to help. One was a boy who
had been horribly beaten with the whip
aud was dying.
CROSSING THE OCEAN.
Our captain was for taking the entire
lot on board and delivering them to the
first British cruiser we should meet. The
owner would not hear of it. He was will
ing to take the gold. Then both began to
question the Dagoes.
"How long have you been in that boat?"
said the captain.
" 'Twenty-eight days,'
" 'Where did you take to her?"
" 'At Inhambane.'
"'What? Do you mean to say you
started out to cross the western ocean in
that boat with all those children?'
"Such was the fact. They' had rowed
away from the coast almost under the jib
boom of a British'cruiser, with fifty
slaves on board, the oldest of whom was a
girl not above 15. Ten of the children
had died from exposure and ill treatment.
The boat was just, twenty-four feet long
over all, seven feet wide, and three feet
nine inches deep. Their supply of water
had run so low that for soveral days only
about four tablespoonfuls had been given
to tho children three times a day. I have
read that in their native jungles these '
children drank a gallon or more of water
a day. You can imagine their sufferings
under that boiling sun with only half a
teacupful in twenty-flour hours. The up
shot of it all was that we gave them all
they wanted, saw that every child had all
it could drink safely for once at least, and
then headed off on our course. The sight
of those children almost made a mutiny
when it was learned that they were to be
left in the boat, but then it was some
thing akin to crime against the flag in
those days to express ' abolition senti
ments, and the auger of the men soon
"Was the boat ever heard of again?"
"Yes, she landed at Bahia about two
weeks later, having lust five more of the
children. Those three Dagoes were
counted heroes there, so Mr. Edward Por
ter, tho British consel at Bahia, told our
captain when we stopped there for a re
turn cargo o: coffee. They had crossed
the Atlantic in the smallest boat that had
ever tried the passage, and had landed as
large a projection of their cargo as the
biggest vessels usually did. The children
were sold at a net profit of ab ait ?100 each,
the market being rather brisk when they
arrived. To appreciate the strides of civ
ilization during recent ye..vs one has oulj
t j co:isider that such things happened
only twenty-eight years ago."?New York

The Patronage of Ladies in the Restau
rants?A Case In Point.
The tinkle of glass and the subdued
clatter of dishes such as obtain in a well
conducted restaurant were keeping up a
certain rhythmic movement yesterday in
a fashionable lunching room of the shop
ping district, when a reporter stopped a
moment at the desk.
"You seem to be doing a thriving busi
ness," he remarked, indicating as he
spoke, the rows of occupied tables before
"H?m," replied the proprietor, letting
his eye wander judiciously in the same di
rection; "do you know young man that I
shan't take in enough off that crowd to
buy one of Macy's little peachblow jugs?
This i3 the time o' day when the ladies,
God bless 'em, come to lunch with me,
and except the pleasure of their pretty
faces and soft speeches, my reward must
be treasured up in heaven, for certoiu J
don't get it here."
"Is this a straight tip?" queried the ex
"I'm telling you sober truth," the
restaurant man replied with much
earnestness of manner. "Take that lady
over there, for instance, pointing to one
sitting about halfway down the room,
"and she is only one of dozens liko her
every day. She came in here three
quarters of an hour ago by the clock, she
and her little boy; she walked through
until she found a table unoccupied and
took possession. The table accomodates
four, but Lord love you, it barely holds one
like her, comfortably. She had the
waiter bring a high chair for young chub,
took off his hat and coat, used one big
dinner napkin to pin around his neck and
another to lay over his lap, filled the
other two chairs with her bundles, cloak,
etc., then picked up the menu card and
began to study it.
"I could have told you what she would
order at once, but it took her fully five
minutes before she confided to the patient
waiter her wants. He was back in less
than three with her lunch(?)?a bowl of
consomme for herself and a glass of milk
"Bread, of course, is served with the
soup, and the two have made a slow and
hearty lunch. She finished a few minutes
ago, ordered a finger bowl, took one of the
napkins, and,dipping it in water, scrubbed
the boy's face and hands, wiped them
with the other napkin, and is now pulling
and setting herself for departure. I can
see from here that the tablecloth is plenti
fully sprinkled with milk and soup?she
fed the boy some of that too?and must be
taken off at once. She has used three
large dinner napkins, has occupied two
more places'than she pays for, sat in the
restaurant nearly an hour, and her check
"Will she fee the waiters? That's too
silly a question to answer. I'm not done
with her yet," he added under his breath,
as the lady approached laden with parcels
and leading a 3-year-old boy by the
"That's just the change, I believe," she
remarked, dropping three 10-cent pieces
on the marble before her, "and will you
he good enough to check these parcels
and this umbrella for me. I shan't be go
ing up-town for a couple of hours yet," she
"Thank you very much. Oh, by the
way, you may give me back that largest
^parcel. I want to send it hv .ffQBBSA

"I think so; but I can tie it in another
wrapper if you wish."
"It might be better; I 6hall be much
obliged. Come, Dickie. Oh," return
ing, ""I may send a messenger for the
parcels, will there be any charge?"
"Certainly not, madam."
"Oh, thank you. Come, Dickie."

Deshs of United States Senators.
Vice President Sherman's desk Is on a
rostrum, several feet above the floor. It
is a fancy affair of mahogany, beautifully
carved and highly polished, and its top is
covered with navy blue cloth, and upon it
there Is a white Ivory gavel, a very pretty
inksiand, and a lot of bills. The vice
president does not do much work at this,
desk. He retains his old senatorial seat
on the floor, and occasionally sits in it.
The average senatorial desk is-of mahog
any, of the same shape as that of a school
boy, and on the top of each desk there is a
silver plate with the name upon it of tho
senator who sits behind it. Some senators
keep their desks very nice, and the con
dition of those of others would drive an
old maid into perpetual hysterics. Blair's
desk is now in a litter, and the floor be
tween those' of Senators Morgan and
Butler is covered with little bits of paper
which some senator has torn up and
thrown down there. Ingalls' desk is piled
high with papers and documents, and
Morgan, Butler, and Logan each have
bookcases in front of their desks filled
with calfskin law books. The chairs
which the senators use are red leather
mahogany ones, with high backs. A few
seats of wicker are creeping in, but the
old style is the favorite one, and four
fifths of the chairs are of this kind.?

A Study of the Hotel Register.
The Almighty loves those who keep his
commandments, but he despises a bad
penman. Yet it seems to be an affectation
on the part of some to be as obscure in
their writing as they are in their intellect.
Study the hotel register of a large caravan
sary for one day and you will only be able
to decipher one-third of the names cor
rectly. Bill Jones, the farmer, and Snobs,
tho millionaire, each dash down a crooked
lino and go off complacently supposing
that the world will be able to read at
once that they are in town. To conclude
this essay, a word of advice is necessary.
Go practice with a Roman spear or a Jew
ish javelin and buckets of ink, until you
can take up a common red-handled pen
and write down plainly that you are John

An African Canine Prodigy.
The Hamburg Zoological garden has re
ceived a full-grown specimen of the Canis
pictus, or spotted wild dog, of central
Africa. The creature is a native of the
western Transvaal, and in appearance an
astonishing hybrid between a hound and
half a dozen other animals. He has the
size and general form of a deerhouud, the
tail of a fox, the biack snout of a hyena,
and the spots and stripes of a leopard. His
voice Is a sort of coughing howl, and. he
paces his cago all day long with the rest

THE TOWER OF BABEL.
THE STRUCTURE PLANNED FOUTHE
Twice the Height of Egypt's Pyramid*.?
Construction of the Elevators?An Ob
servatory for Astronomers and Eloctrl
cinn.-?View from the Cupola.
No feature of the plans for the greatex
position of 1S8& is so much talked about as
the gigantic tower, 1,000 feet high, or
twice the height of the pyramids of Egypt,
' designed by M. Eiffel, the engineer of the
department of arts and manufactures, to
decorate the Champs de Mars. Nothing
like it has been attempted since the Tower
of Bable, and scientific progress may per
mit the descendants of thoso whom God
dispersed because of their impiety to
carry out a simlar design.
As the workmen will soon begin digging
the foundation of the tower, a description
of! the plan will bo of interest. The base of
iron is composed of four pyramids, each
one squase, fifty feet a side, and diminish
ing towards the top, which is twenty feet
a side." These four pyramids are sepa
rated from each other by a space of 300
feet, and for stability they are anchored in
solid masonry. Two hundred anfi. thirty
feet above the ground these pyramids are
united by a gallery fifty feet wide. This
gallery, which is covered with glass, will
be used for restaurants, soirees, etc. The
next story has a room, covered with glass,
100 feet square. At the summit is a gk?s
nome, with terrace, and from this terrace
the exposition will be lighted by elec
Visitors will reach the dome by means
of elevators. Four of these elevators,
constructed like the Swiss railways, will
I)e placed in the four pyramids and wo
can go seven times us high as the Column
Vendomo?and stand G00 feet higher than
the top of Mont Valerien. The eyes can
3weep the horizon for 100 miles, and Com
piegne, Rheims, Fontaineblau, Chartres,
Dojou, with the little villages lost in the
woods, and the rivers, wandering through
the valleys, will all seem a continuation
of Paris. Ten departments of France will
be at our feet.. There have been no ac
cidents with thi3 system of railway, be
cause the car is drawn by a cable and the
axle attached to a steel hook, so if the
cable breaks the car remains fastened to
this hook. That is the system for the
elevators, t and in addition to the four
placed in' the pyramids a fifth will take
visitors from the center directly to the
ASTRONOMERS AND ELECTRICIANS.
In the cupola astronomers will be es
tablished with their telescopes, plurio
metres, etc. This observatory, fitted up
with a metallic armature, destined to re
ceive all the atmospheric electricity, will
be surrounded by a paratonerre. Ex
periments heretofore impossible can be
made here; atmospheric electricity, speed
of the wind, Foneault's experiment to
demonstrate that the earth revolves^-all
can be studied. Spectroscopes, destined
to analyze the light of the sun an J' stars,
and an enormous telescope, to follow stars
which could hardly be perceived from the
other observatories, will be placed in this
cupola. Another interesting study will
be that of the variation of "temperature,
with altitude. The tower will form an im
mense pafatonnecrejand whenthere is a
storm every t^^^^r tue iiM'fc~^[fr ' be
t ? SBC .j Bjwtfing and not feefllKVot
fect. To produce this result the conduc
tor will be interrupted for a distance of
two yards and the lightning will jump
from one section to the other, with con
1 tinual explosions.
The iron used in the construction of this
gigantic monument will weigh about
7,000 tons. Of course the critics are very
busy prophesying the failure of the work.
"The tower will never be flninished; it
cannot be scientifically utilized, for at the
slightest wind there will be an oscillation
preventing al! observations." M. Eiffel
answers by saying that with an impetu
ous wind of seventy feet a second and a
pressure of 100 pounds to every
square yard, the tower will not sway more
than four inches. With a tempest?the
wind 100 feet a second and a pres
sure of 150 pounds a yard?the oscillation
will not be more than six inches. Tho
oscillations will be very slow because of
: the great length of the part which vi
brates, and it is certain that it will be
j much less than in columns of masonry,
: whero the elasticity of tho mortar is the
' chief cause of marked oscillations.?Paris
