A RICH AFRICAN.
Tippu Tib, the Greatest Slave and Ivory
Trailer In the Worlil.
Tho wealthiest man in Central Africa
is now on his way to tho Indian Ocean
in response to a letter from tho Sultan
of Zanzibar requesting a visit from him.
His name is Tippu Tib, nnd he lives not
"far from Nyangwo, tlto great trading
point of many black tribes on tho uppor
Congo. Readers of African books of
travel havo heard a good dual of Tippu
Tib, and as recent years havo greatly
increased his power and wealth, wo aro
likely to hear much of him.
Tippu Tib is only forty-fivo years old,
black as coal, and of negroid blood,
which means that ho comes of an ad
mixture of the coast tribes of "East
Africa and has also a very little Arab
blood in his veins. Ho lias been in Cen
tral Africa for twenty-five years, and is
to-day tho greatest slave and ivory
trader in tho world. Ho has outstripped
nil his competitors through sheer force
of intellect and strength of character.
As long ago as tho timo when Cameron
introduced him to our notico ho visited
Nyangwo and told tho bullying traders
there that if thoy did not leavo certain
native allies of his nlono it would be th-i
worse for thorn. Thoy lost no timo ii)
pledging eternal pcaco with Tippu Tib
and all his friends.
Cnmoron says Tippu Tib was tho
greatest dandy ho saw among the trad
ers of Africa, and that although of
nogroid blood, ho was a thorough Arab
in manners and ideas. All his whito
T- visitors speak of the eli'ganco of his
Arab attiro and of Ids courtly anil affa
ble bearing. Stanloy says that at his
first meeting with Tippu Tib ho regard
ed him as tho most remarkable man lie
had met among tho Arabs, Wa Swahili
and half castes of Africa. Lioutcnaut
Van Gale, of tho Congo State, who mot
Tippu Tib in January Inst, says ho was
surprised by tho otcnt of Ids informa
tion on European topics. Ho was
familiar with ovonts occurring in
Europe, nnd was particularly interested
in the English. Germans and llolgiaus.
"The questions ho asked me," says Van
Gnlo, "showed that ho is neither an ig
norant man nor ono of ordinary mind."
Ho said lie intended somo day to go to
Europe, visit tho King of tho Belgians,
and also spend some timo in Constanti
nople. In Tippu Tib's homo, soutli of
Nyangwo, Cnmoron says thnt largo
gangs of slaves walking about in chains
mot Ills cyo at ovoiy turn. Thoy woro
loading easy livos, woro woll fed, nnd
ho saw no acts of cruelty there. All had
been victims, howovor, of tho orying
wrongs thnt nro still decimating tho
simple bnvages of Africa. Thoy had
been surprised in tholr peaceful homes
by tho suddon onslaught of Tippu
A Tib's ruthless soldier slaves, who had
burned their huts, killed tiieir friends
nnd dragged them off into captivity.
Tippu Tib is tho most noted roproscntn
ttvo of thoso men who aro to-day In
fiietlng more sull'ering upon their fel-lot'.'-crcaturos
than any other human
boings tho professional slavo-tradors
of Africa. Fow of Tippu Tib's slaves
ever reach tho Indian Ocoan, Thoy aro
sold among tho numerous tribes on tho
way to tho sea. Lony caravans, how
ever, riolily lndon with Ids ivory, nro
ofton dispatched to tho coast
It wnsTlppu Tib who liolpod Stanloy
start down tho Congo from Nyangwo,
the point where both Llvlngstono and
Cameron wore dofoatod In their oflbrts
to follow tho river further, For somo
weoks Stanley's little party was aug
mented by over two hundred of Tippu
Tib's mon, Twenty very dark beauties
from tho groat trader's harem accom
panied him on this, his first trip down
tho Congo, whoro ho Is now In nlmoluto
control of thoriyor and adjoining terri
tories for about three hundred and fifty
roilos below Nyangwo. It was his
hivo;pcn near Stanloy falls, in which
twenty-five hundred wretched capita M
woro found two yoars ngo when tho
AgonU of tho International Assooiatlon
reached that point.
For many miles below theso falls
Stanley wns chased by largo Hoots of
canoes, and Ills party suflbrcd severely
from tho lances nnd arrow of tho most
ferocious savages whom he mot on tho
Congo. Those natives an) among tho
most praccnblo on tho Congo now, nnd
nno good reason is ttiat tliey have no
weapons to light with. They havo all
l)een disarmed by Tippu Tib for a dls
tnnco of about eighty miles alone tho
river for daring to attack some of his
men. Dr. Lcnz. tho explorer, wroto
from Stanloy falls in March last that
botween tho falls and tho Aruwlml river
tho nntlvcs wero incnpablo of making
nnv res'slanco. "Ono can rnroly find
among them," ho writes, "n lanco or
nny other weapon except small knives."
Dr. Leu, ndds that "tho influence of
tho opulent Tippu Tib Is far groator
all through this rogiou than that of the
Froo Coiiro Stnto."
Tippu Tib has thus far maintained
very iimicnblo relations with tho whites.
Ho has invited missionaries to sottlo
near him, and lias promised them pro
tection. iv". Y. Sun.

Whether it bo tho oxistenco of enor
mous standing armies, tho havoc of
conturlcs of war, tho absence of practi
cal educational facilities or tho lowncss
of laborers' wages, that compels so
many women on tho continent of Eu
ropo to seek to gain a living in occupa
tions which wo deem fit only for tho
strongest nnd rudest of men, cortnin it
is that one of tho commonest nnd, to
American eyes, tho strangest sights
thoro is tho number of women engaged
in agricultural and other sovero manunl
labor. In Franco women aro still oc
cupied in tho mines, dragging or push
ing the heavy trucks ot coal through
tho narrow tunnels thnt run from tho
scams to tho shaft. Of courso, in such
work thoy adopt tho ordinary costumo
of tho working miners, and at tho first
glanco nro not to bo distinguished from
the men by whoso side thoy nro work
ing. Some of tho entries in tho French
census as to tho laboring population
aro strange enough. In Purls thoro aro
nlno fcmnlo boat-builders, and 245
"wheelwrights, farriers and saddlers,"
eight sawyers, forty-six carpenters and
joiners, eight masons and ono plumber.
It is, however, in Austria that wo find
tho greatest proportion of women en
gaged in heavy physical labor, not mere
ly m ngriculturo or tho mines, but in
paving and cleaning tho streets or in
carrying lingo trays of morfar or ltods
of bricks up to tho workmen on tho J
scaffolding of buildings in tho courso of
erection. Theso women do not seem to
complain of their lot; they have boon
bred up to hard work from infancy nnd
aro used to nothing hotter; their
language and manners aro as courso as
those of tho male laborers, whom in

as may bo seen any day in Antworp,

workers in mines, quarries and
foundries, and about 2,000 are classified
as "drivers, postillions and railway
laborers," and about 1,000 as "ships'
crews, sailors, boatmen and ferrymen;"
in this last category will comu women
employed in towing canal boats. It
has been asked why do not women
adopt callings moro adapted to fem
inine hands? Tho reason seems to bo
tho industrial condition of a great part
of tho European continent, which af
fords to thorn no better means of earn
ing a living, and tho fnet that thoso oc
cupations, which aro so utter unfom
ininc, aro just thoso in which un
skilled labor can bo employed. A
chnngo, however, is slowly com
ing about by tho growth of im
nortnnt industries in every country.
Tho factory system has been found
In Germany to "havo a strong tendency
to improve tho condition, not only of
tno women immediately employed in
them, but of thoso working in tho coun
try around. A largo employer at Frol-
Durg, after thirty years' experience
jam: "lho condition of tho agricultural
laborers is not a satisfactory ono. Thoro
is much misery among them, especially
n oral misory. When mothers apply to
ii! for work for strong, healthy girls wo
teh them such girls are moro fit for
labor in tho fields, but too frequently
receive nn account of tho hard and im
moral life assoc'ated with such service.
Tho sct'io changoswhenawoll-managed

poor girls must tiien either rccoivo hot

One of the most important questions
for tho farmer upon tlio great plains of
tho West is that .l tlio propor grasses
to rcplaco tho wild species. For somo
years tho early settlors thought that tho
wild grasses could bo depended upon for

perience has shown that they will not
endure tho now conditions to which
they nro subject when tho country is
converted into farms. Tho cattle and
horses of the West can not long depend
upon tho natural grasses; thoy must
havo forage which is moro nutritious,
as well as moro productive
A careful study of tho problem upon
tho ground shows that Kentucky blue-gra-s
can be well grown upon the soil of
tho plains. In the vicinity of tho old
forts, where many years ago tho United
States troops were stationed, Kentucky
blue-grass has been growing for a long
timo. Tho seeds senttercd from tho hay
used for feeding tho horsos germinated
and took root upon thounbrokonprairio
sod, and in timo actually crowded out
.the wild grasses. Tlio hint thus acci
dentally given out has neon acted upon,
and to-day thoro are ninny lino bluo-
f;rass pastures upon ground wh oh
ms never felt tho plowshare. The
usual practice now is to food down tho
wild grosses as closoly as possible, and
then to sow thickly with good blue-grass
seod. When oncb bluo-grnss is intro
duced upon a farm it is only necessary
to scatter blue-grass hay upon tho wild
sod. For this purposo tlio hay should
bo cut lato enough, so as to havo ripo
soeds; it may ba well-nigh worthless for
forage, but its ssed have a high valuo.

when tlio very members of bis cabinet
were acting and speaking as if they
were tho servants cither of England or

the foulest designs against tho liberties
of tho people." That is tbo way somo
people wrote nl out Washington when
ho was President Horace E. Scudder,
