May, jumped the ranch and claimed
it as her own. After that Hamblett

A SOUDANESE THREAT.
Tlio Africans rropose to Tuni t'ui Nllo
from lt Course.
Tho wnrliko Soudanese, who luivo
bo Moutly l-CMstcd tho inti-oiltietiou of
civilization into their land, uio now
found, according to &ir Samuel liiker,
to ho masters of tho situation ton de
gree for which oven tho fall of Khar
toum has lwt prepared tho outsido
world. Thoy hold tho key of tho Kile,
and prudent and thoughtful men who
know tho geography of tho Soudan
and tho resources and ivrklcsrau'SH of
the natives beliovo thai that thoy are
capable of turning that great river out
of its prcbont course and bringing ino
Iriovablo ruin upon ICgypt. It npjiears
that in tho inaccessible fastnesses of
tho desert, wheio tho bayonets of
Europe cannot reach, lliei-o is n spot
where even savage African engineer
ing will sulllco to find tho Nile a Bhott
cut to Uio fc.cn, and they havo already
threatened their enemies with this dis
aster. If tho work is done a fertile land
nearly equal in extont to I ho states of
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan
will ho changed into a dewrt and a
population of millions will bo blotted
out of a country that is tho oldest in
history. No such gigantic menace has
ever before been held out in tho nnnals
of the world, nnd never before has it
been no possiblo that a gravo threat
would be fatally carried out.
It is a llguro of speech when we
talk about tho nations changing tho
map of Europe; tho wild speaimen of
the Soudan have it in tho hollow of
their hand.') to alter in fact and deed
the map of Africa. They can, if they
please, wo are told, spread the Sahara
like a great yellow pall fully across
tho continent from sea to sen. They
can build a rampart of tsui'd
against progress that progress can
not crosn. Such tremendous power,
such a niischiovouii possibility,
gives an interest to tho Egyptian prob
lem that brings it homo to every
nation. Tho jryi-.miitlu have ntoo'il
since tho morning of timo; cxnnircs
and dynasties havo riren and liavo
fallen, nnd they havo not. been stirred.
Yet tho ignorant savages in tho desert
are their mastoid and can bring tho
sand upon them to bury them as tlio
temple of .lupitor Amnion and (ho
Sphinx itself wcro buried. If tlio
savago wills the siacridcc, a flood as
fatal as that in which Pharaoh
perished can sweet) Egypt out of exis
tence, slowly, perhaps, but surely. It
is tho land of tombuuud memories, tho
world'rt graveyard ; perhaps it is timo
that it should bo interred itrcU'. Civi
lization vaita upon tho Souduiiose. It
is for them to say. Chicago News.
fiubjocts for Industrial Traltiinj;.
Mrs. Laura Osborno Talbot thus de
scribed to tlio American association
her experiences of tho effects of a little
industrial leaching upon thirty va
grant boys whom sho, with some other
ladies, induced to attend for threo
years an industrial school at Howard
university one morning in tho week:
"Wo wcro limited in every way, but
wo found theso children of tho lowest
kind were delighted to work with
tools, and fouio of them havo set up
litllo carpenter shops of their own,
and support themselves in (hat way.
Tho moral uplifting was tho best result
of all, and it is not likely that theso
boys will become xucmbeis of our
"Each boy nslin entered thoclasr. was
taught in tho tailor shop to meiid Ids
clothes, nnd in tho shoo shop to mend
his shoes. Ono lamo colored boy from
tho orphan asylum became so rihillful
in fihoeniaking that he could not only
mako his own shoes, but could cut up
tho larger, half worn shoes and make
them over for baby feet. All of this 1
term tho best kind of economy, espe
cially in a city liko Washington.''

bered a young bank clerk, Lowell
Mason, altrrward so celebrated, who
was ;just a few steps down tho street,
and who had n reputation us iiuiusicul

him to writo a tuno that would go
with tho hymn. In just half an hour

It is curious how caducity hrfa in
creased, and tho prevalence of it taken
away tho old reproach. AH tho argu
ments aro agonist its existenco, nnd
all tho facts provo that tho arguments
are misleading. People lead healthier
lives now limn they used to do, and
yet they nro balder. Peoplo lead
longer lives, and yet they grow bJld
euriior, and, morovcr, it is the
healthiest peoplo who nro often

comes a question whether in

very rehablo extent cither of ago or of
