kiold of an old' Arab, the father of
one of General Lapcrriae's men. lie
was antelope hunting, and when half
dead with thirst ho reached a well
forty-five feet deep. At the bottom
he could see tho delicious water, but,
like Tantalus could not reach it
Unlike tho mythical martyr,
though, ho was not Chained to the
rocks, nnd as tho well was not Tory
wide ho did not hesitato to let him
self down part of the way, and final
ly fell into the pool. It was quite
impossible for nim to got out, but,
like, a good fatalist, he waited in his
bath, praying Allah to send some
travelers by. In these regions weeks
and sometimes months pass without
the wells being visited, but next day
fortune favored him by sending some
of the French camel corps that "way,
who were not a little astonished at
hearing a voice from beneath. "Good
day, Syrians" (as the Arabs call the

I me flown a stronger rope to climb
up with." He had recognized at
once the pattern of tbe Spahi rope,
and knew to whom ho was talking.
IMPROVE MILK OF COACOANUT
South African Natives Show Real In
genulty In Their Treatment of
This Important Food.
South Africa natives along the
Orange river hare a way of produc
ing "milk," which, primitive as it
is, vies in Ingenaity with the method
of those who believe in the synthetic
production of what the journalist,
hard up for a synonym has been
known to call "the lacteal fluid."
After cutting the iop from a cocoa
nut; the native pkoesthe 'nut over
hot ashes, so that e warmth may
cause the fat and 'tier" contained
in the husk to be absorbed by the
milk. This changes the milk qual
ity and gives it a palatable taste. In
order to deal with several nuts at a
time, the natives construct rough
"holders" from old iron hoops. The
ashes are placed under the grating
and the nuts set in it. Obviously
there must be no actual fire beneath
the nuta, or they would be burned
away and the milk be lost
