A White F.xpedition in Africa Ru.nt
ed by Savages - An Orang-On
tang Attacks His Keeper, Etc.
A MONG the passengers oz the
steamer Bonny, which has
arrived at Liverpool from the
west coast of Africa, .was
Captain Boisragon, who was one cf the
only two white men who escaped from
the Benin massacre, Mr. Locke being
the other. Captain Boisragon was in
very good health, and said that his,
arm was almost well again.
Captain Boisragon gave in the Lon
don Times the following account of
his adventures after the first attack
was made on the expedition:
"When the firing began I was walk
ing just behind Major Crawford, who
was next to Mr. Phillips. At first we
could not believe that the firing was
meant for anything, but a salute, as
everything had seemed so peaceful.
When we did realize what it meant I
rushed back to try and get my re
volver, which was looked up in a box,
but as all the carriers had bolted at
once I could not get it, and was re
turning to the head of the column
when I met Crawford and the others
'coming back. Crawford told me
Phillips had been killed already, so we
'settled to try and get back to Gwato.
,As we went along the road with a lot
of our carriers and servants who
had joined us, we were continu
ally fired on by the Benin men. At
first all the white men kept on turning
to the Benin men, saying 'Adoc' (the
Benin salutation) and 'Don'tfire. It's
a peaceful palaver.' Finding that
this was no good, we took to charging
them with our sticks, and they inva
riably ran away. After a bit Major
Crawford was badly wounded in the
groin. So Mr. Locke, Maling, myself
and Crawford's orderly carried him,
although he told us he was done for
and implored us to leave him and
save ourselves. Meanwhile all our
carriers had gone on with Mr. Powis,
who, when I last saw him, seemed to
be driving the Benin men before him
like sheep. He had been up to Benin
several times before, could speak the
language a little, and at first the Benin
men did not seem to want to touch
him at all. While we were carrying
Major Orawford, Dr. Elliot, who was
bleeding from a wound in the head,
kept on charging into the bush, try
ing to prevent the Benin men from
shooting at us, for we could only go
very slowly. He most undoubtedly
kept them from coming close up to us,
and saved us from being hit several
times. After a bit I saw a man aim
ing at as from behind a tree further
up the road in the direction we were
going, so I told the others to put
Crawford down for a short time while
I charged at the man. In doing so I
was knocked over by a shot in my
arm, but as it did not hurt at the time
I got up again and charged the Benin
"When I got back to the others I
found a lot of Benin men had crept
up close behind and killed them all
except Locke, who was wounded in
three places. We were all hit with
pellets several times. As Locke and
myself were the only two living, we
bolted into the bush. We had taken
the compass belonging to poor Mal
ing, and tried to steer northwest,
which would bring us out on the
Gwato Creek some way above Owato.
We ran and walked through thick bush
as far as we could that evening, and
stopped to rest about 5.30 p. m., hav
ing left the scene of the massacre
about 3.45 p. m. Immediately after
we sat down we heard two men-Benin
men, of course-talking to each other
not twenty yards away from us, and a
few minutes afterwards we heard a
party cutting their way through the
bush. At first it seemed as if they
were making straight for us, but they
passed about twenty yards from us,
dropping sentries as they went. Dur
ing the night I had to change my po
sition, as I was getting oramp,,and
the sentry in front of us must
have heard me, for he called
out to the one next him, and
we could hear them both searching
through the bush. Soon atter that I
woke up to find a band on my boot,
then feeling up my gaiter, and I
thought it was one of the Benin men
who had found us in the dark. I
grabbed the hand,meaning to strangle
the man before he could cry out. At
the same time I called out, 'Locke, I
have caught this villain l' when I
found it was Locke himself, who had
changed his position and was trying
to find out where I was. After this
the Benins must have known where we
were, as we could hear three of them
walking round and round us until
long after daylight. Then they seemed
to leave us, but why or wherefore they
did I cannot tell. We thought that
they imagined we were already done
for. However, instead of being shot
when we moved off, as we half ex
pected to be, we saw no one and got
away. Although we heard plenty of
people we met no one until the last
day, as we kept to the bush as much
"On the fifth day we came across a
small creek which we knew must lead
to the Gwato Creek. We walked down
into a small waterside village. There
the few men, instead of giving us the
water we asked for, hurried us off into
a small canoe until we were round a
corner. Then they let us drink all we
wanted. These men were Jakries, who
trade with the Benin men, and they
took us across to a bigger Jakrie vil
lage on the other side of the creek.
There we got a larger canoe, got un
derneath mate, and w;ere paddled down
to the Benin River, which we reached
about sunset, and where we found one
of our own Protectorate launches. We
were told afterwards that the reason
the men in the small village hurried
us away as quickly was because
there were some Benin soldiers
living in the village looking out
for refugees, but that they had left
the village about a quarter ,f an
hour before we got there to get their
food, and bad nt returned. We had
absolutely nothing to eat for the five
days we were in the bash, and nothing
tQ drink but the dew on the leaves in
the early morning. The only' thing
we could find eatable were plaintaine,
but they were so dry that we could not
swallow any of tfem. Another day
without water would, I think, -have
finished as bStth. Dr. D'Arohy Irvine,
who looked after s so wel whoa we
got down to New Benin, told me that
my arm would have mortified if it had
not been attended to for another day.
The wound had got very bad the day
before we reached water."
Attacked by an Orang-Ontang.
"Chief," the big orang-outang ahose
pensive air and almost human tricks
have for years caused visitors to the
zoo to wonder just how much there
really is in Darwin's theory, attacked
his keeper, and if the latter had not
succeeded in backing out of the cage
as he fought the beast off, there might
have been enacted another of the har
rowing stories that travelers tell of
the orang-outang's strength and fierce
"Chief" lies in the large building
near the seal ponds. His keeper,
James M. Murray, was feeding the
animals and had passed down the row
of cages, in each leaving dinner for
some hungry resident of the zoo.
He entered "Chief's" cage from the
rear, as he has entered all the others.
The big ape was out of humor. He
had been rather surly for a day or
two, but he had not attempted any
tricks that would remind the keeper
to keep his eyes about him.
Murray put the cup and pan in their
usual place, when, with a sudden dart
and a snarl so fierce that all the other
animals in the house began to chatter
and shrink, the orang-outang leaped
across the cage and gripped the keep
er's foot in his vise-like jaws. Murray
realized that his lihfe was in danger.
There was no wealpon, save the light
pan and cup, within his reach. He
saw that it would be a band-to-hand
struggle withthe enraged animal if he
would escape, and with the odds largely
in favor of his antagonist, who had
four hands to his two and a fierce set
of teeth into the bargain.
Orang-outang fighting under such
circumstances was new to him, and he
had to trust to his instinct. He leaned
over at once to choke the ape, bring
ing his neck within the reach of those
powerful spider-like arms, but at that
moment "Chiel" released his grip 6n
his foot and made for his body as if to
bury his teeth in the keeper's side.
Murray was too quick for him and
fought him off. Fortunately, the
orang-outang was not in good condi
tion, long confinement having taken
from him some of his fierceness. Mur
ray was following up his advantage
when the animal caught an opening,
and in a second had his jaws fixed on
the keeper's right arm, which had
been extended to ward him off.
He tugged and beat until finally
"Chief" let go his bite. The arm was
badly lacerated, but Murray had the
satisfaction of knowing that "Chief"
will nurse two bruised eyes for a while,
that is if there is enough tissue round
an orang-outang's eye to show a bruise.
The keeper backed out of the cage
warily, while th3 snarling ape leaped
to and fro in front of him in a ferret
eyed search for a good opening. He
got away without further harm; and
had his wound dressed at the Presby
terian hospital. Later in the day
Murray was able to return to duty.
A Brakeman's Fearful Peril.
The terrible experience of Mike Ma
loney, a Cincinnati Southern freight
brakeman, at Highbridge, was not ex
aggerated by first accounts. Maloney
was running or standing upon the top
of a freight car as the train was cross
ing the bridge. When about midway
of the structure his foot slipped, and
he shot over the edge of the car
and started on his journey of 286 feet
to the river or rocks below. Persons
who witnessed the accident say that
Maloney grabbed wildly in all direc
tions, but could secure no hold upon
the roof of the car. As luck would
have it, however, he fell to the side
along which the telegraph wires run,
and, just as his body was about to
clear the bridge, he grabbed a tele
graph wire with a death-like grip and
This esaved him from a terrible
death. A number of persons hastened
to his assistance and found him too
weak to do anything for himself. He
was deadly pale, and big drops of
sweat stood out all over his face. He
fainted after being removed from his
perilous position, and it was some
time after he reached his home at
Georgetown until he began to recover
from the shock upon his nervous sys
tem. It was one of the closest calls
any man ever had. Maloney will

Griflmth's Close Call.
In stepping over a revolving roll in
the Lukens Iron Mill, at Coatesville,
Penn., Frank Griffthi an employs,
had a hair-raising experience. The
tail of his long overcoat caught on
the roll, and he was himself wound
around the latter in a jiffy.
Employee sickened and turned their
faces away, expecting to see Griflith
crushed into a shapeless mass, as the
space through which he passed in the
machinery was eighteen inches in
diameter at its widest, and his head
went grinding against the iron.
The roll had made ten or fifteen
revolutions before the machinery could
be stopped. Then his companions
rushed to unwind and extricate rhat
they apposed to bs only a corpse.
They finally got Oriflith out after cut

the same extent as In this country. In
mileage of electric railways Germany
stands first. Then follow France, Gt.
Britain and Ireland, Austria-Hungary,
Switzerland, Servia, Russia, Belgium
and Spain in the order named. Of the
111 lines operated in Europe in 1895,
91 were worked on the overhead sur
face system, 12 on the underground sys
tem and 8 by means of accumulators.
If Germany alone the capital invested
is $32,800,000. It is estimated that the
number of new lines to be established
this year in Europe will exceed those
established in 1895. the city of Ber

ways and omnibuses, will soon intro

It is not generally knOwn that all
the minor coins of base metals, such ,e
pennies and nickels, are madeat the
Philadelphia Mint, and that neaffy 100,
000.000 pennies are coined there ever

by the fact that thousands of tennies
are lost annually, and the Gover linfent

Of all the diplomats in the service of
Russia there are few who have manag

perspicacity and skill than Count Cas

been officiating as Muscovite envoy at
Pekin. It is thanks to him that with
out war and without the expenditure of
any treasure the czar has reaped all the
benefits-aye, and more-of the victory
achieved in China by the armies of the
mikado. To-day it is Russia that con
trols everything at Pekin, the emperor
of China being reduced almost taa state
of vassalage of the czar. All this has
been brought about by Count Cossini,
and he has been assisted in his so ruc
cessful negotiations by his niece, a
lovely girl of about 17 years of age.
Possessed of a remarkable gift of lan
guages she has attakied an extraordin

Perhaps persons will not be so eager
to have their anatomies photographed
by the Rontgen ray process, just for
the fun of the thing, when they consid
er the experience of Dr. Waymouth
Reid, professor of physiology in Uni

liver a lecture, Prof. Reid took a photo
graph of his own body through the
clothing in order to exhibit the con

an hour and a half, the Crcolhes tube
being three inches from his waistcoat.
Shortly after the exposure marked ery

of the back where the rays made their
exit. In seventeen days the skin began
to peel off, leaving a raw surface. It
was not apparent that any of the or
gans beneath the skin were injuriously
affected, but it was obvious that the
affected skin did not stop all of the in

the body and affected the skin of the
back in a similar manner. It is a curi

close proximity to the nerve terminals
there was no accompanying sensation.
Ark-Like Church Built in a Day.
It is generally accepted that it took
Noah 110 years.to build the Ark, says
the New York World, but it took a
number of carpenters at Chicago less
than a day to put up a church built
on the lines of the ark. On a recent
Thursday night the site where the
church stands was a vacant lot, but
next night there was a building capa

The Rev. M. B. Williams, an evan

has been holding revival meetings in
the United Presbyterian Church. One
Thursday night he proposed that a
church be built on the ground in Ra
venswood, a suburb of the city. Inside
of a few minutes $700 had been raised.
The ground was donated.
By midnight a contractor had taken
the job tri build a' church in a day. At
daylight the ground had been levelled.
Soon wagonloads of lumber began to
arrive at the place. Scores of carpen
ters were put to work. The frame went
up almost as if by magic.
Then the rattle of hammers followed,
and the sides were seen to close in.
Electric light wires were strung from a
plant two miles away, and the organ
and choir furniture were put in while
the doors were being hung. At mid
night the last nail was driven, and in
a few minutes the sexton turned the
key in the door, which was opened for
the dedication ceremonies on the fol
lowing Sunday morning.
The church will seat 3,000 people.
Over 50,000 feet of lumber were han

A Remarkable Book.
The most curious book in the world
is neither written nor printed. Its
pages are conibosed of the finest quality
of vellum, and the letters were with in
finite pains and trouble cut out of the
material with a sharp-pointed knife or
pair of delicate scissors, says the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat. It is inter
leaved with blue paper, and the letters
can, therefore, be read as easily as any
print. It formerly belonged to the
Prince de Ligne and is now in the
library of a noble French family. The
title of the book is, "Liber Passionis
Domini Nulla Materia Composits;" in
English, "The Book of the Passion of
Our Lord Jesus Christ, in Characters,
Without Materials of Composition."
The matter is a homily, probably com
posed by some monastic preacher of
the Middle Ages. A remarkable cir
cumstance connected with this book is
the fact that, although it bears the
royal arms of England, no mention of it
can be found in any English writing.
The book is believed to have been made
some time in the thirteenth or four
teenth century. In 1640 the Emperor
Rudolph offered for it 11,000 ducata
($66,000), but was refused.
Pipe Line for Coal.
The plan of transporting coal like oil
in pipes long distances is being serious'
ly considered by some New York coal
merchants. A small pipe line has al
ready been established as an experi
ment, and it is believed that coal can be
carried in this way quite as easily as
oil and very economically. The coal is
frst crushed, which can be done at very
slight expense, and then carried
through the mains by water pressure.
On reaching its destination the coal is
dried and burned like any ordinary
grade of fine coal. It is be'ieved, ays
the New York World, that coal may be
deli ered in this way in very large
quantities, to mills.and consumers at a
