ca.1' Mr. Raker was accompanied
throughout by his wife, and at the point
where this narrative begins the party
were but a few days' journey from the
lource of the Kile:
On the morning of tho second day
we had difliculty in collecting porters,
thse of tho preceding day having ab
sconded; and others were recruited
from distant villages by tho native es
cort, who enjoyed the excuse of hunt
ing for porters, as it gave them an op
portunity of foraging throughout tho
neighborhood. Duriug this timo we
had to wait until tho sun was high; we
thus lost the cool hours of morning,
and it increased our fatigue. Having
at length started we arrived in the af
ternoon at the Kafoor river, at a bend
from the south where it was necessary
to cross over in our westerly course.
The stream was in tho 'center of a
marsh, and, although deep, it was cov
ered with thickly-matted water-grass
Hnd other aquatic plants that a natur
al floating bridge was established by a
t pet of weeds about two feet thick.
'i on this waving and unsteady sur-
o the men ran quickly across, sink-
.r: merely to the ankles, although bo
ne; th tho tough vegetation there was
It was equally impossible to ride or
to be carried over this treacherous sur
face; thus I led tho way, and begged
Mrs. Baker to follow mo on foot as
quickly as possible, precisely in my
track. Tho river was about eighty
yards wide, and I had scarcely com
pleted a fourth of the distanco and
.ooked back to see if my wifo followed
close to me, when I was horrified to
see her standing in one spot and sink
ing gradually through tho weeds,
while her faco was distorted and per
fectly purple. Almost as soon as I per
ceived her she fell us though shot dead.
In an instant I was by her side, and
with the assistanco of eight or ten of
my men, who were fortunately close to
mo, I dragged her like a corpso through
ibo yielding vegetation; and up to our
waists we scrambled across to tho oth
er side, just keeping her head above tho
water. To have carried her would
hrve been impossible, as wo should all
have sunk together through tho weeds.
I laid her under a tree and bathed her
head and face with water, as for tho
moment 1 thought slio had fainted; but
sho lay perfectly insensible, as though
dead, with teeth and hands firmly
clinched, and her eyes open but fix
ed, ft was a coup dc soldi a sun
stroke. Many of the porters had gone on
ahead with tho baggage, and I started
ofT a man in haste to recall an angarep
upon which to carry her and also for a
bag with a change "of clothes as we had
dragged her through the river. It was
in vain that I rubbed her heart and the
black women rubbed her feet to restore
animation. At length the litter came,
and after changing her clothes she was
carried mournfully forward as a corpse.
Constantly as we had to stop and sup
port her head, a painful rattling in the
throat betokened wuil'ocation. At length
we reached a village aud halted for the
I laid her carefully in a miserable
hut, and watched beside her. I opened
her clinched teeth with a small wooden
v dge aud inserted a wet rag, upon
Aieh I dropped water to moisten her
gue. which was dry as fur. Tho
feeling brutes that composed tho na
e escort were yelling and dancing
. though all were well, and I ordered
tin ir chief to at once return w,ith them
to Kamrasi, as I would travel with
them do longer. At tirst they refused
to return, until at length I vowed that
I would lire into them. Day broke,
and it was a relief to have got rid of
tho brutal escort. They had departed,
ai'd I now had my own men and tho
guides supplied by Kamrasi.
There was nothing to cat in this spot
My wife had never stirred since sho
fell by the coup dc soldi, and merely
respired about five times in a minute.
It was impossible to remain; the peo
ple would have starved. Sho was laid
gently upon her litter, ami we started
forward on our funereal course. 1 was
ill and broken-hearted, and I followed
by her side through the long day's
march over wild park lauds and
streams, with thick forest and deep,
marshy bottoms, over undulating hills
aiid through the valleys of tall papyrus
rushes, which, as we brushed through
tbem on our melancholy way, waved
over the litter like tho black plumes of

night was passed in watching. 1 was
wet and coated with mud from tho
swampy marsh and shivered with ague;
but the cold within was greater than
all. No change had taken place; sho
had never moved. I hud plenty of fat,
and I made four balls of about half a
pound, each of which would burn for
three hours. A piece of a broken water
jar formed a lamp, several pieces of
rag aerying for wicks. So in solitudo
the still calm night passed awav as 1
est by her sido and watched. In tho
drawn and distorted features tliut lay
before me I could scarcely trace the
same faco that for years had been my
comfort through all th dillieulties and
dsngers of my path. Wan she to dieP
Was so terrible a saci-ilioo to bo the re
sult of my sellish exile?
Again the night passed away. Once
more the march. Though weak aud
ill, and for two night's without a
moment's slen, I felt no fatigue, but
mechanically followed by tho side of
the litter as 'though in a dream. The
same wild country diversified with
marsh and forest! Again we halted.
The night come, and I sat by her sido
in a miserablo hut, with tho feeble
Jamp flickering while sho lay as in
death. She had never moved a muscle
since she fell. My peoplo slept 1 was
alone, and no sound broko the stillness
of the night. Tho ears ached at tho
utter silenco, till tho sudden wild cry
of a hyena made mo shudder as the
horrible thought rushed through my
brain that, should sho bo buried In this
lonely spot, tho hyena would disturb
Tho morniug was not far distant; it
was past 4 o'clock. I had passed the
night in replacing wet cloths upon
her head and moistening her lips, as
sho lav apparently lifeless upon her lit
ter. I could do nothing more; in soli
tude and abject misory in that dark
hour, in a country of savage heathens.
thousands of miles away from a Chris
tian land, I beseeched an aid abovo all
human, trusting alone to Him.
The morning broke; niv laniD had
just burned out, and cramped with tho
: -1. 1 .. i : t . i
uigm a waiciuug i rose irom my low
seat and seeing that sho lay in tho
same unaltered state I went to the door
of tho hut to breathe one gasp of tho
fresh morning air. I was watching
tho first red streak that heralded tho
riwing sun, when I was startled by tho
words: "Thank God," faintly uttered
behind me. Suddenly sho had awoke
from her torpor, and with a heart over
flowing I went to her bedside. Her
eyes were full of madness! She spoke,
but the brain was gone!
I will not inflict a description of tho
terrible trial of seven days of brain fe
ver, with its attendant horrors. Tho
rain poured in torrents, and day after
day wo were forced to travel for want
of provisions, not being able to remain
in one position. Every now and then
we shot a few guinea fowl, but rarely;
thcro was no game, although tho coun
try was most favorable. In the forests
we procured wild honey, but tho de
serted villages contained no supplies,
as we were on the frontier of Uganda,
and M'teso's peoplo had plundered tho
district. For seven nights I had not
slept, and although as weak as a reed,
I had marched by tho sido of her litter.
Nature could resist no longer. Wo
reached a villago one evening. She had
been in violent convulsions successive
ly, it was all but over. I laid her
down on her litter, within a hu cover
ed her with a Scotch plaid and fell up
on my mat insensible, worn out with
sorrow and fatigue. My men put a
new handlo to the pickaxo that even
ing and sought for a dry spot to dig
The sun had risen when I woke. I
had slept, and horrified as tho idea
flashed upon mo that she must be dead,
and that I had not been with her, 1
started up. She lay upon her bed, pale
as marble, aud with that calm serenity
that the features assume when tho
cares of lifo no longer act upon tho
mind and the body rests in death. The
dreadful thought bowed mo down; but
as I gazed upon her in fear, her chest
gently heaved.'not with the convulsive
throbs of fever, but naturally. Sho
was asleep; aud when at a sudden
noiso sho opened her eyes, they wore
calm and clear. Sho was savedl When
not a ray of hope remained, God
alono knows what helped us. Tho
gTatitudo of that moment I will net at
tempt to describe.
Sfyra Clarke Gaines.
Myra Clarko Gaines, tho widow of
tho Jate Gen. Gaines, has for tho past
lifly years been trying, through tho
courts, to prove her right to property
which actually belongs to her, and
about which the Supreme Court of tho
United States has decided in her favor,
but now comes somo technical flaw
about bonds. Tho little woman, has
seen 76 years, but has tho appearance
of being only 50, with her fair complex
ion, bright black eyes, that never look
through glasses to decipher the finest
print or to use her pen, which she is
doing, and tho result will bo her auto
biography, which cannot help but bo an
interesting work. With all her trouble
and opposition, sho docs not show any
vindictiveness or bitterness, is amiable,
generous, and a truo friend to the poor.
While relating to us tho experiences of
her trial, she would vibrate about tho
room, gesticulating in an amusing
manner. She avows that she can out
talk, oullaugh, outwalk any woman
under tho Bun, and boasts of having
monopolized tho conversation -when
Mmo. LeVeit was of the company,
much to tho chagrin of that renowued
When tho question of tho illegiti
macy of Mrs. Gaines' birth was intro
duced in court, sho pleaded her own
case in tho presence of more than a
thousand people, which plea brought
every member of tho jury to her side.
Sho says "God never repented having
mado woman, but ho saw that man was
a decided failure, and was sorry that
ho had created him." She is always a
woman's champion, believing in her
rights, which sho says must come, and
tho rights of franchise, on which sub
ject sho has talked in public to thou
sands of attentive listeners. "If,"
said she, "I had been a man I should
have adopted tho medical profession,
because for it I inherit both taste and
talent." She restored her daughter to
perfect health after tho physicians had
pronounced her beyond cure.
Mrs. Gaines' father, Daniel Clarke,
was a nativo of New Orleans, aud in
that city ho is buried. In her early
maidenhood sho became tho wife of
William Wallace Whitney, of New
York, but in a few years was widowed.
She says: "Gen. Gaines was greater
than Clay, Calhoun, or Webster, and
his last" words to mo were: "lour
cause is just and you must succeed."
Although her father was born in
Louisiana and her husband in Virginia,
sho has nover known any North or
South, but has idolized her whole
country. Her first benevolent work
will be to build a widows' home, tho
next an orphan asylum, if the greedy
lawyers do not "gobble up" all she se
cures. Tho charges in tho caso thus
far for fees, (stenographers, writs, and
counsel fees have already been over

WaMorsou and Itrijjlit,
I heard, the other night, a story
about Watierson, writes a correspond
ent. Not long ago ho was in Indian
apolis. There he sat down to a iiue
of poker with "Dick" Bright, who was
recently sorgeant-at arms of tho sen
ate aud president of the city horse rail
road. Watterson had great luck. Tho
money rolled in upon him. When ho
was I'botil fl.000 ahead he began to
think how he would spend it. "I will
ride home in the best hack this city af
fords," he said. Before a great whilo
he had $.3,000 in winnings. "I will
drive to my hotel with four whito
horsvs, and a darkey leading each
one,-' was his exultant announcement.
From that mom. nt his luck turned.
Every cent in bis pile was gone, and
Ids poeketbook began to look thin.
The raiiro-id president fumbled in his
pocket. Taking out a car ticket, ho
nasied it across tho table. "Hero,
Watterson, you said you should rido
home. Put that in your pocket aud
you can." Watterson walked, and
still keeps the ear ticket as a reminder
of t!ie night the lloosier strapped him.

"Women are a necessary evil," he said,
bringing down his fist hard on the counter
to emphasize the heartless remark. It was
in the village store at West Milton, Samto
g County, and the speaker was tho central
figure ot a group of bucholic philosophers.
Ho was homely, slovenly and sixty.
"There's where I differ from vu alto
gether," said Mr. George T. Graham, of
the same place. "Women are mostly what
men make 'em. When husbands are brutes
wives will fall into submission or make
home hot for the men; and they're unnatur
al in either character. Love them, and es
penally be good to them when they're
sick, and you'll have no trouble. There's
my own wife, now. She's suffered a good
ileal with dyspepsia, nervous prostration
and other ailments that took the bloom off
her cheeks nnd the spring out of her steps.
