rille, Fla., in the winter of
[ion sale of the personal
?ascd planter, comprising
[a* eighty slaves and other
Kield in the public market
'as glad of the opportunity to
myself how such things were
Ibne. On beginning the sale the auc?
tioneer announced that families would
not be separated, but would be sold in
"lots.'* After a number of "lots" had
been duly brought to the block and
knocked down to the highest bidder, a
bright looking boy was brought forward
and placed upon the stand. The auctioneer
at the same time called an old colored
man among tlio crowd to come up*and
stand beside the boy. Me did so, and the
auctioneer then said:
"Gentlemen, the old man is this boy's
father; he lives in the West Indies, and
is a free man. lie wants to buy the boy
and take him to his home and make him
free. He bids ?-100. which is all the
money lie lias."
The intent of this statement was evi?
dently to discourage any advance on
that bid. aud it touched a sympathetic
chord in his audience. Tho crowd
watched the proceedings for a minute
or two in silence, while the auctioneer
dwelt upon the bid of $100, and was
calling it for the third and last time,
when, from the ouiskirts of the crowd,
a voice bid "Fifty." Every eye was at
once turned in the direction of the bid?
der, who was a rough, dissipated look?
ing fellow, a typical slave trader in
appearance. The auctioneer paused a
moment, looked annoyed, and then re?
peated his previous statement concern?
ing the old man, emphasizing the re?
mark that $400 was all tho money he
h;ul. "And now," said lie, "I am bid
fodS hundred and fifty." From a dozen
voice? came the cry: "Withdraw your
bid!" The auctioneer awaited the* re?
sult. The bidder growled a surly refusal,
saying lie "wanted that boy, and had as
good a right to bid as anybody." "Four
hundred and fifty," came slowly from
the lips of the auctioneer. The shouts
of "Withdraw your bid!1"1 were repeated
in angry tones on every side.
"Well," said the bidder, "I with?
Tho auctioneer quickly went back to
tho original bid, on which he dwelt two
or three times, when down went his
hammer. "Sold at four hundred. Old
man, the boy is yours; take him down."
The crowd cheered, and tho principal
figure in this little drama who, the mo?
ment before, had been the picture of
despair, hurried down from tho stand
smiling and happy.?New York Sun.
The Natives of Serapit.
Tho population of Serapit turned out
to sec us. The women wore a strange
contrast to tho men in appearance.
While the latter were as lean as whip?
ping posts and uglier than most monkeys,
the former?at least those under CO or
so?were plump, solidly built, full bos?
omed creatures, and there were at least
half a dozen in the crowd before us who
might fairly be termed good looking.
But the older members of the com?
munity, the women especially, almost
pass my powers of description to give an
idea of their wend ugliness. K. tersely
summed them up as "baked monkey,"
but a monkey would at least have had a
covering of hair, whereas these dreadful
persons had nothing but their very
scanty clothing to conceal any part of
the leathery itegument that was so
tightly shru en over their skeleton
bodies, and 1 fced ?o hard and dry that
you expectC to 'near it crackle when
they moved. Their faces seemed to con?
sist solely o .-kin drawn over a skull
without a rticle of Qesh and looked
precisely as if some one had tried to
make a mask out of old leather, and
failing had thrown it down in disgust
f d stamped on it. Vet they seemed
neither decrepit nor idiotic. The men
carried their complement of arms: one
old fellow iiad girded on the longest [
and crookedest sword there, lie looked
like Death with his scythe. A woman,
who resembled one of the dried mum?
mies of blacks found in North Queens?
land reanimated, was pounding paddy
in a wooden mortar, so I concluded that
appearances were deceptive and that
they were net nearly so old as they
looked. Indeed, the Malayan races are
not long lived and really old people are
very scarce?such an instance as the
late Sultan of Brunei, who lived to
nearly 100, being almost unheard of.
?London Field. ?.
Changed the Babies.
In Nordhausen there is a cafe in which
one room is specially reserved for the
cabmen belonging to the rank outside.
The other evening the large hall of the
cafe was hired for a fete, and after
supper, when dancing began, those
fathers and iuoihers"who had brought
their babies with them found that.the
latter interfered with their enjoyment.
The perambulators containing the sleep?
ing infants were accordingly pushed into
the adjoining cabmen's room to be out ?
of the way. The cabmen, angry at the i
infantile invasion, remonstrated, but, as I
no notice was taken of their objections,
they hit upon a plan of revenge. Wait?
ing till the pleasure seekers were com?
pletely engrossed with their dancing,
they secretly changed the babies. When
the fete was over, the parents came,
looked out their own perambulators,
and wheeled them home; but found, to
their horror and amazement, when they
lifted out the occupants, that they had
got the wrong babies.?Court Circular. ?
