Many years ago Shuter, a popular
actor, was engaged for a few nights
in a principal city in the north of
England. It was in the coaching days,
and it happened that the stage in
which he traveled (and in which there
were only an old gentleman and him
self was stopped by a single highway
The old gentleman pretended to be
asleep, but Shuter resolved to be even
with him. Accordingly, when the high
wayman presented his pistol and com
manded Shuter to deliver his money
instantly or be was a dead man,
"Money!" returned he, with an Idi
otic shrug and a countenance inex
pressibly vacant "Oh, lor', sir! They
never trust -me with any, for uncle
here always pays for me, turnpikes
and all, your honor."
Upon which the highwayman gave
him a few curses for his stupidity,
complimented the old gentleman with
a smart slap on the face to awaken
him and robbed him of every shilling
he had in his pocket, while Shuter.

In preparing the breakfast, though I
fancy my assistance might have been
easily dispensed with. He sagely re
marked that If I was going to rough
it I might as well begin learning now
as any time. It was astonishing how
appetizing a meal he prepared with
the very fewest conveniences. For in
stance, he made bread In the sack of
flour without using a bread pan. He
hollowed out a cavity in the flour,
poured in water, added salt and bak
ing powder in proper quantities, then
proceeded to mix the dough. He did
another thing in his cooking that
amused me very much. To prevent
the coffee boiling over he placed a
small willow stick across the open top
of the pot. The lesson in physics soon
followed. The coffee bubbled and
then rushed up to the top of the pot
as though it was going to boil over the
sides and extinguish the fire, but as
soon as it touched the willow It sub

Captain John Smith and Rats.
The intrepid navigator Captain John

. The Traveler's Joy.
The cream of tartar tree, which is
also called the "sour gourd," grows in
northern Australia and ~has a trunk
which measures from seventy to
eighty-five feet in circumference, but
which is only twenty or thirty feet
high. The wood is soft and juicy and
when steeped in water provides the
thirsty traveler with a refreshing and
cooling drink. The fruit is about six
inches long, shaped like a lemon and
contains a gently -acid pulp, which
tastes like cream of tartar. Wherever
It is to be found a small encampment
of weary wayfarers unfurl their tents.
When sighted in the bush the famous
tree is always greeted with a song
written by the early bushrangers
called "Sing Hey For the Traveler's

Sacrificed Their Lives in an Attempt
to Save the Colors.
In days gone by the Zulus were
the boldest fighters among all the na
tives of South Africa, and it was not
atil they had been defeated in sev
aral battles that they would live in
peace with white people.
In 1878 15,000 of the Zulus attacked
and killed a regiment of British sol
iers, and a most heroic deed was the
attempt made by three British sol
Liers to save the two flags, or colors,
belonging to the regiment.
When It was seen that the Zulus
were so many that there was no hope
of keeping them at bay the colonel of
the British regiment called to a young
omficer whose name was Lieutenant
Melvill and said, "You will take
charge of the colors, Melvill, and try
to get away from here."
The lieutenant saluted and took into -
his hands the two colors of his regi
ment. Then, with another officer and la
a soldier, all mounted on horses, he
suddenly dashed away with his pre
They were at once seen by the keen
sighted Zulus, however, and after a
long chase the three gallant English
men, fighting to the last, were killed
by the enemy.
Some time afterward one of the flags
was found near a rocky stream, where
the heroes had fought and died, and
it was taken to England and presented
to Queen Victoria.I
