Ascribes Origin of Thibetans to Mon
key and a Female Demon.
"Speaking of Thibet I am remind
ed of one of the curious legends o
that country," said a man who like:
old stories, "and while I do not voucl
for it, you can have it for what it i!
worth. It is one of the many legend!
of that middle Asiatic country. Tibe
was originally inhabited by wild ani
mals and demons. At a certain per
iod God sent there the king of th4
monkeys, who led the life of a her
mit: his exclusive occupation was th<
performance of religious duties an(
he was absorbed in the pursuit o:
the knowledge of nonentity. Wher
he was just on the point of attain.
ing the object of his mission he wa,
"disturbed in his contemplations b3
the visit of a female Manggus. Th<
Manggus, ugly demons, can adopi
any figure they please. One assumec
the form:of a beautiful creature and
proposed to the king of monkeys tc
marry her. He at first alleged hi!
monastical duties. but at last he mar
ried her and their descendants are
the people of Tibet. They believe
in metempsychosis and are proud ol
their descent from a monkey, because
he is one of the most cunning of ani
mals. The first man king was by

Moses, for he was exposed by his

General Joe Wheeler relates the c
following amusing incident that took c
place during the night of the El v
Caney affair: c
"General Lawton's division was d
marching back to El Paso, there to t,
take up a new position in the morn- o
ing. The general in company with 'I
Major Creighton Webb, inspector n
general of his staff, was standing at g
the edge of the road, watching his s
troops file past. Just as the dawn h
was breaking the colored troops came d
in sight. They gave evidence of
being dead tired, but were neverthe
less full of 'ginger.'
"General Lawton's attention was ti
attracted to a certain corporal of the I,
Twenty-fifth infantry, a great 6-foot p
negro, who in addition to a couple of' t]
guns and two. cartridge belts loaded
full was carrying a dog. The soldiers
to whom the other guns belonged
were limping alongside his comrade. t<
"The general halted the men, j
'Here, corporal,' said he to the 6-foot e
man, 'didn't you mrch all last night?" (
" 'Yes, sir,' responded the negro, I
" 'And fought all day?'
" 'Yes, sir.'
' 'You have besides been marching e
since io o'clock tonight?' 0
" 'Yes, sir. c
" 'Then,' said Lawton, 'why on ;
earth are you carrying that dog?' i
" 'Well, general,' replied the negro,
showing his white teeth in a broad .
grin, 'the dog's tired.' "
His Fears Were Realized. e
A Georgia statesman says that
while he was in the shop oi an opti
cian he once heard an amusing con
versation between the proprietor of
the establishment and an aged dar
ky, who wvas just leaving the place
with a new pair of spectacles, says the
Youth's Companion. c
As the old chap neared the door r
his eye lighted upon a most extra- e
ordinary looking instrument con- b
spicuously placed upon a counter. y
The venerable negro paused for sev
eral moments to gaze in open won
der at this thing, the like of which he
had never seen before. After a long 11
struggle with his curiosity he was ti
vanquished. Turning to the opti- fP
cian. he asked:
"What is it, boss?" 8
"That is an ophthalometer," re- tl
plied the optician in his gravest tone. a
"Sho!" muttered the old man to e
himnself as 'he backed out of the door hi
his eyes still fastened upon the cu- f:
dious looking thing on the counter. b
" Sho, dat's what I was afeard it was!" q
