that I, Jean liarliarous, now sitting

At theso words nil eyes were turned
to tho man with the gold spectacles.
Ho contented himself, however, with
one of those modest smiles which leavo
it impossible to divine whether tho
smiler actually refuses to sustain the
assertion referred to him for autlienli
lication, or whether he simply declines
the honor of being regarded as the
hero of so extraordinary nn adventure.
The audience, so boisterous but a lit
tle whilo before, had suddenly becomo
perfectly quiet. All awaited with vis
ible curiosity the recital of the wonder
ful story suggested by the declaration
of the Marseilhiis.
Harbarous, quite satisfied with the
result of his words, sat down again,
and without further preliminaries be
gan as follows:
"It was about ten years ago either
in 172 or 173; but the date doesn't
matter. I had served my full time on
board tho Jurton; and, thanks to the
recommendations of my captain, I eas
ily procured a situation as traveling
agent for tho Mennevals. I suppose
you have all heard of that firm the
largest Parisian house in the commerce
of leathers and stuffed birds for the
millinery business in the Hue St.
Denis, at the sign of the Casoar (cas
sowary). The Mennevals send their
traveling agents to all parts of the
world to buy up ostrich plumes, mar
about feathers, and rare birds. They
sent me out, for the first tiiue, in com
pany with Holbeck. who you see before
you. We were ordered to the African
coast in search of a certain kind of lit
tle bird, like a blackbird, which has its
breast covered with feathers that look
like gold very pretty, indeed. Our
employers wanted to place these on tho
market os a new ornamental design
for ladies' hats; and we were ordered
10 procure au mat wo could lind or

' 'iioiuecic naa already traveled a
great deal, both in North and South
America ana in Ainca, wiuie 1 was
merely a new apprentice in tho busi
ness that was why they sent mo out
with him. Since then we have always
been traveling together. Holbeck nnd
I arc now inseparable as the cloth of a
coat is from tho lining.
"But to come to my story:
"We both started from Hordeaux on
a vessel which took us to Gabon. As
noon as we got there wo hunted up
King Denis, the best-natured nigger on
the whole coast, and he said to us:
'My children, if you want gold birds
you 11 have to work pretty hard to find
them; there nr.; none left" here. You'll
havo to go up the river into tho inte
rior ust as fur as you can.. .Thanka
for the information,' we replied; nnd
wc started up the gn,lV v-lv,.ro
"All along our route we slopped at
the villages; and at every vUlu.ro we
had to hold long parleys with tliechiefi
parleys which sometimes lasted sev
eral hours all to obtain u few dozen
' "Finally wc decided that in order to
complete our stock we should have to
leavo tho river altogether, and travel
into tho unknown country.
"Ah! let me tell you nbout that
country! It isn't the sort of country
one would like to retire upon one's in
come in. Tho first pin t of it is all one
slimy marsh, full of snakes and croco
diles; then, further back, the ground is
covered with forests so thick that, you

can scarcely get through at all. Hut
thsn, those forests are full of the finest
birds in tho world. On tho whole, the
(Jabon coast is tho worst placo 1 ever
struck. Tho inhabitants aro so bizy
lliat they crow nollim?-, nnd keep no
sort of provisions on hand, so that wo
had to n) huntinir every day for some-
thin z to eat. iust as thev have to do
themselves. I tell von it was a tolera
bly rough apprenticeship that I had to
Co through. N nether wo wero ntiui'
ing for provisions or for birds, wc were
nearly nil the time in tnose great womis,
whom wn were surrounded bv all mi-
''"Oiio dav. when our provisions had
run elmrt. !l lie TO 0111110 to tell US that
about a leagup from the camp ho hail
soon n o-reat herd of those big ante
lopes with curved horns which they
mil douaals. Holbeck and I went af
ter them; but the savages had deceived
us at least so far as the distance was
concerned, for we wero more than two
hours running through tho jungle,
tumbling over rocks or stumps, and
wading through marsh-grass and reeds
before we found the herd at last. It
was composed of just threo animals
and no more; and they were grazing
in the middle of a great open space,
about three hundred yards away from
us. They seemed to 'bo very wary so
that it was no use thinking of trying to
n't nnv nearer to them.
" lloibeek, who wore spectacles then
just as he doe to-day, could not have
hit a mark li.'tv paces off. So I had to
take tho chance myself. I went on my
knees, took a long, long aim and lired.
To our great joy one nt the antelopes
made alremeiidous leap into tho air
and fell dead on the ground, while tho
others ran away. As I had only a
single-barreled' gun I could not attempt
"Uut we were very well satisfied; tho
antelope was big as a eaif, and quite
enough to till the void ia our meat
supply. We proceeded to cut him up,
and linding it impossible to take tho
whole away with us we selected three
line pieces as big as we could conven
iently carry, 'lldbeek and I each
took'a piece", which we fastened on our
shoulders, and the n 'gro who accom
panied us took t tie other.
"As the evening was advancing, we
started fur our camp as fast as was
possible, considering tho weight of our
burdens. We had already made half
the distance when ail of a sudden,
while we were travelling a thicket, wo
heard, right doe beside us, a mo?t
"At last we have got to tho lion!"
cried the audience.
Yes. it was the lion, resumed Bar
barous with his cutoiuary phlegm;
"and I would like to have seen you in
. . i ,t
mv place. nun i nrst noticed me
lion he was only ten steps away from
me, and in the very middle of the path;
and 1 assure vou that ti:e sight ot him
did not make me laugh; for I immedi
ately remembered having been silly
enough not to reload mv gun. But I
lid not have much time to meditate.
Holbeck, who was behind me, fired his
gun at tho lion, who immediately leap
ed at me with a terrible roar, and felled
me to the earth.
'Just as 1 fell 1 caught a glimpse of
Ilol beck and tho negro, running away
ns fast as their legs could carry them,
ami Ihen I lost all consciousness.
"My bravo comrade knows that I
never bore him any grudge for thus
abandoning me. He really thought I
was already dead, and he could not
have done anything to save me.
How long 1 remained senseless I
do not know; but gradually found my
self coming back to life. At first I had
only a very vague idea of what had
happened to me, and I made a painful
effort to rise when a deep growl came
in answer to the movement and I felt
myself nailed to the ground by an
enormous weight. 1 he lion was lying
"This discovery made me tremble in
every limb; but that was nothing to
what I felt when 1 found that tho fero
cious brute was actually eating mo
alive. I heard my own bones crack
ling in his mighty jaws, and I felt,
nevertheless a strange phenomenon!
I did not suffer; I felt no pain noth
ing hut a horrible sense of weight and
oppression. Then I remembered hav
ing read or heard somewhere that men
or animals in the clutches of beasts of
prey aro subject lo a peculiar and
providential species of torpor, which
exempts them from nil sense of pain.
"Hut if I aid not feel tho hideous
rending of my flesh by the teeth of tho
beast, still my brain "was tortured by
Bueh unutterable fear that I fainted
"When I came to it was black night;
and there was a ring of negroes stand
ing round me with torches in their
hands. On first opening my eyes, and
seeing tueir grimacing black faces,
lighted up by flames, I began to think
I was in hell or at least in purgatory;
ior i uid noi remember having ever
done anything very wicked. Hut after
a second or two I saw the good-natured
face of Holbeck, who was bending over
me, and crying like a child: 'O my
poor Barbarous! 0 my poor Barbar
ous! Then I tried lo get up; and
what was my surprise to find that
could do bo without nuy dilliculty!
Once on my feet I began to feel my
in ins, my neau, my chest, my legs
well, they were all intact! I had only
a iew scratches no serious wound at
"n hat sort of a yarn do you call
that, Barbarous? You must have been
dreaming, and that lion simply knock
ed you out ot his way and went by.
"That's where you make a big mis
take," returned 'Barbarous. "Every.
thing happened exactly as 1 told you;
so that when Holbeck returned from
the camp to look for remains ho actu
ally saw the lion eating nie as fast as
he could. J he brute only left mo
when ho saw the torches approach
ing." "And what else?" asked the sailor's
hearers, quite nonplussed at this new

expected conclusion; nnd all present

Asin(iTov. Dee. 21. 1818. Mr
Deak Fatiiku: Your letter of the 7th
was received night before last, I very
ciieeriuiiv semi you f.'u, which sum
you say is necessary to save your land
from sale. It is singular that you
should have forgotten a judgmout
against you, and it is rnoro singular
that tho plaintiff should have let you
forget it so long, particularly, as I
suppose, you have always had property
enough 10 sausiy a judgment of that
amount Before you pay it, it would
be wed to be Mire you havo not paid it,
or at least that you can not prove that
vou have paid it. Give mv lovo to
mother and a. I the connections. Affec
tionately your son, A. Lincoln.
TO HIS BKOTHEK.
Dear Johnston: Your request for
$Sd I do not think it best to comply
with now. At tlio various times when
I havo helped you a little you have said
to me: "We can get along very well,
now," but in a short timo I find you in
the same d lli ulty again. Now this
can only happen by some defect in
your conduct. What tho defect is I
think I know. You are not lazy, and
still you are an idler. I doubt whether
since I saw you you have done a good
whole day s work in any one dav. You
do not very much dislike to work, and
still you do not work much, merely be
cause it does not seem to you that you
get mueh for it. This habit of useless
ly wasting time is the whole dilliculty.
mid it is vastly important to you, and
still more to your children, that you
should break this habit. It is more
important to them becauso they havo
longer to live, and can keep out of an
idle habit Lefore they are in it easier
than they can get out after they are in.
1 ou are now in need of some ready
money, and what 1 propose is that you
shall go to work "tooth and nail" for
somebody who will give you money for
it. Let father and your boys have
chargo of things at homo prepare for
a crop and maKe tne crop and vou go
to work for the best money wages, or
in discharge of any debt you owe, that
you can get. And to secure you a fair
reward for your labor I now promise
you that for every dollar you will, be
tween now and the first of next May,
get for your labor, either in money or
ou your own indebtedness, I will give
you one other dollar. By this, if you
hire yourself at 10 a month, from no
you will get 10 more, making $20 a
month from your labor. In this I lo
not mean you shall go off to St. Louis,
or the lead mines, or the gold mines in
California, but I mean for you to go at
u ior me lcsi wages you can et close
to home in Coles county. Jow if you
do this you will soon be out of debt,
and, what is better, you will have a
habit that will keep you from getting
in debt again. But if I should now
clear yon out, next year you will be
just as deep in as ever. You say you
would almost give your place in heaven
for $70 or $80. Then you value your
place in heaven very cheap, for I am
sure you can, with the oiler I make
you, get the $70 or $W with four or
five months work. You say if I fur
nish you the money you will deed me
the land, and if you don't pay the
money back you will deliver possession.
Nonsense! If you can not now live with
the land, how will you then live with
out it? You have always been kind to
me, and I do not now mean to be un
kind to you. On tho contrary, if you
will but follow my advice, you will
find it worth eighty times eighty dol
lars to you. Affectionately your broth

Phillips Brooks on tho 'Drummer."
Tho Rev. Phillips Brooks, in the
courso of his remarks at the New En
gland commercial travelers' dinner in
Boston said that commercial travelers
should bo proud of their mission in
this most exciting and interesting nine
teenth century. This is certainly tho
greatest commercial century that the
world has seen. Ono cannot go any
where to-day but ho meets the com
mercial traveler. The speaker had
seen a caravan coming into tho gates
of Damascus, and thoso in that cara
van, he said, wero essentially commer
cial travelers, though perhaps some
what different in aspect from tho gen
tlemen about tho table before him.
Every ago has had its characteristic
men, nnd they were generally travel
ing men. Ono ago had its mediajval
knights, another its roaming Grecian
scholars, another its German mechanic,
who went nbout from point to point in
Europe. In our ago tho commercial
traveler is distinctive. Ho sets clearly
the standard of tho time. But ho can
not accept tho privileges without also
taking on himself tho responsibilities
cf his calling. On him depend tho
standards of peace and morals of our
time. This world is going to increase
or decrease in integrity, charity and in
the spirit of freedom and peace, ac
cording to tho spirit of our commercial
men. In Venice there was once a law
that no ship should go to tho East with
out bringing back to Venico somo por
tion of tho magnificent ruins there to
put into tho structure of St. Marks.
There is a certain poetical value in this
law, he averred, even for our own time;
no man and no ship has a right to go
out In theso modern times without
bringing back something to onrich tho
humanities of tho age. Groat men of
old despised commerce. Vinril fore
