TWO YEARS WITH THE MOST DE
GRADED RACE IN THE WORLD.
TUe VoclrllUrrt Black Tribe lu the Heart
of Australia- Thejr Ara Lazy. Cowardly
and Treacherous rrotected by Tobacco
. and a Revolrer.
A remarkably interesting lwturo wan de
livered by Dr. Carl Luinuoli, of Cbrintiauiu,
Norway, before the Ideographical awioty nt
Chickeriog hall. New York. Dr. Lumholz is a
Norwegian scientist who, a few years sinre,
conceived the idea of penetrating the wildest
parts of Australia in anarch of flora and fauna
of the country. He ban returned from his
explorations, having iwsned two years and
mora among the least civilized tribes) of men
now existing, and having trod over laud and

The most interesting artof his experiences
war with the cannibalmtic tntes in the heart
of Australia, of whom he says:
"Of courso, I could not go nt once and live
with them, but had to work my way gradu
ally. - I had, then, beau in Australia more
than a year, and, of course, had acquired
some experience as to how to proceed with
them. I now first beuii to associate with
the so called civilized blacks, and through
them I, by degrees, became acquainted with
other tribes, until at last I lived with natives
who were in the most primitive state of life
and had never come in contact with a white
man. By civilized blacks we generally un
derstand such of the natives as have to some
degree been affected by European culture,
but the exteut of the civilization may be
briefly summed up thus that a civilized
black knows that he will be shot dead if he
kills a European ; that he is greatly addicted
to tobacco, and fond of wearing clothes,
which be considers more as an ornament
than as a useful article.
THE POWER OF TOBACCO.
"The greatest trouble was to get the blacks
to take port in my excursions, for they are
oorn idlers and have fundamental objection
to any kind of work. Luckily, in the last
six or seven uiontlis of my stay in that re
gion I happened to find a really good ser
vant He stuck to me wherever I went, so
that my position from tho time of his advent
grew much more favorable. He was by uo
means an ordinary black, but was possessed
of a peculiar veiu of naivete, and so he often
blurted out ideas and information of the
greatest value. In spito of this, he was not
at all free from the treachery characteristic
of all the blacks. Nevertheless, ho was hotter
than the others and saved my life many a
"As far as this method wus possible I rode
alone, whilst my blacks went on in front.
one of them leading my iack hors?. At the
foot of the mountains a camp was pitched.
and here the horses were left behind, whilst
the saddles and bridles were placed in a tree,
so that the wild dogs could not cot at them
Then we went up the mountain on foot, tho
dense nnderwond there of course being iin
passable for horses.
"My provisions consisted of fourteen to
fifteen pieces of ox flesh, pickled and dried.
with a small quantity of wheat flour to be
baked into bread in the hot ashes, and some
sugar. When these provisions were ex
hausted, which occurred pretty quiokly, we
uvea, liked the aborigines, on vounc snakes.
lizards, larva), eggs aud the like. My outtlt
included a large white woolen blanket that
was a standing wonder and a constant envy
of the blacks. As soon as I unpacked it they
maae a cuciting noise, expressive of delight,
with their tongues, and roared out: 'Taiuin,
tamin!' (Fat, fat!) Anything that is very
good they can 'rat.'
"One of the most important things I
brought with me was toliacco, a greater joy
to the aborigines than the very best food. At
Herbert river tho blacks did not know, bo
fore the arrival of the whites, of any stimu
lants at all. The tolmcco served me instead
of money, and for it they will do anything,
even to selling their wives. Among these
people tobacco is always smoked, .pever
chewed, and I have often seen a mother, car
rying a child on her back, hand it a pipe, at
which the child would take a couple of puffs
with appareut delight. They often used to
end in barter small bits of tobacco, wrapped
in cum, to other tribes, and In that way
tobacco is known among remote tribes who
have never themselves come into contact
"Next to tobacco, my revolver was of the
greatest importance to me. Very luckily,
the natives, who do not themselves possess
even bows and arrows, have tho greatest re
spect for fire arms. It is, however, necessary
to keep up your reputation as a good marks
man, else you will soon lose their respect.
Their astonishment is equally great when you
hit a kangaroo in a resting iiosition, or when
you bring down a bird on tho wing. They were
especially afraid of my revolver, which they
looked upon as inexhaustible. I made it my
business to keep this fear constantly awake,
and every night before creeping into my hut,
I discharged my baby gun, as they called it,
just in order to refresh their minds as to the
existence of this dreadful weapon.
"Happily for me, I felt in the winter time
the cold at night, owing to the great contrast
with the heat of the daytime, ana in conse
quence I awoke several times every night and
had" to wake the blacks to keep the Are burn
ing before our huts. This gave the blacks
the impression that the white roan slept but
little and that he was always on the alert and
had the baby gun ready. It was necessary
always to be on one's guard, as the blacks are
of a very treacherous and cunning nature,
and one of the most imjiortaiit precautions
that a colonist learns to take is, 'never to
have a black fellow behind you.'
"I had a good deal of unpleasantness and
many troubles through their deceit and cun
ning, which often made me so tired and wor
ried that I was on the point of giving up the
expedition, but the thought of perhaps being
able to make valuable discoveries in this
strange and interesting country always kept
my spirits up, and I must say that I was not
disappointed, but have returned with inter
sting facts and specimens of natural history
new to science, and with au intimate knowl
edge of the habits and life of the Australian
aborigines one of thoso unfortunate races
that are rapidly dying out. On tho other
band I was cheered in my work by the many
delightful Impressions I received of the grand
and tpfcmdid scenery around me 011 my
wanderings, sights I shall never forget. When
the tropical sun rose in the early morning
above the trees of the lofty Australian forest
and awakened nature with Its bright, das-
cling rays, or when tho moon appeared above
the mountain ridge and threw her pale light
over the vast plains below, while the mystic
voices or toe night birds rang out on the still,
quiet night, there was a lieauty over the
landscape which I could not possibly do
justice to if I were to attempt to describe it,
and regretted only that I had no companion
to share it with me."

DIG8Y BELL'S STORY.
nu TiitlilU Knew It All, Excepting What
the Chicago Cabman Knew.
One evening in Chicago Mr. Ben Tuthili,
representing "The Pearl of Pekin," and my
self decided, after some little discussion of
various attractions, to attend the Stoddard
"Illustrated Lecture on Florence." Mr.
Tuthili, who bos lxxn a great deal in Chicago
and professes to know the city well, at once
constituted himself general guide, with the
cheerful assurance that ho knew the way. I,
who am tho personification of credulous inno
cence, yioldwi myself to the leadership of
Mr. Tuthili until 1 found that gentleman's
foohstejK wero pointed well into the shadows
of Wabash avenue. "I dou't think this is
the wuy to Central Music hull," I hesitatingly
volunteered. This was an irritating assault
ujwnMr. TiithilPsamourpropre, and he indig
nantly resented this insinuation by stopping
short, with the sharp rejoinder: "Then, per
hups, you'd better And the way yourself." I
puused. '"It seems to mo," 1 said deferen
tially, "its in the other direction." "All
right," said Mr. Tuthili in high duilgeon;
"then we'll go that way and see where we
pull up." Wo turned about and retraced our
steps, coming finally, with respectful uncer
tainty on my part aud jeering volubility on
his, to the on trance to Central Music lioll.
In dubious tones I remarked: "I believe this
is the place, old mau." Mr. Tuthill's gaze
lighted on a largo iwster that took up half
the way and announced tho "Valda concert"
for the following night. Theu Mr. Tuthili,
who hasn't a very quick perception of dates,
let his scoru blazo out witheringly.
"There, you chump," he exclaimed.
"You've brought up at some concert room,
and I hope you are satisfied. I didn't attend
the Thomas concerts all last summer without
learning where Central Music hall is and
maybe you'll go with me now." In great
humbleness I confessed my error of judgment,
and deprocatiug further ceusure, volunteered
to hire a cab. Mr. Tuthili elated and I de
pressed eutered a convenient cab as Mr.
Tuthili said in triumphant tones: "Drive us
to Central Music hall." The driver, though
rtartled, did not loso his presence of mind,
but mounted his box and lashed his horses
into motion. A block away he called down,
"Where did you gents sny you wunted to gor"
and Mr. Tuthili replied with some importance,
"To Central Musiu hall." Then merrily that
driver chirruped to his horse and briskly
made the revolution of two or three squares,
halted at last with a great flourish at the
exact spot from which ho had started. "Here
yon are, sirs," lie said cheerily, dismounting.
Mr. Tuthili looked uixnit in a dazed sort of
way and said, in a Far Rockaway reverie:
"Why, this is where we were before." "So it
seems to mc," I replied, sarcastically, with
rising emotions. "This is Ceutral Music hall,"
said the driver, positively. "Well, we're
huutiug for the Stoddard lecture." "Right
inside," said the cabman, twinkling. "But
the concert J" . "Oh, that's to-morrow night,"
explained the amiable driver, adding persua
sively, "one dollar, please.'' I said, "I think
you'd better pay that, Beu ; I'm such a chump,
you know." As we entered, the cabmau was
heard by us to murmur something about
"hayseeds come to towu. " We looked straight
ahead. Tuthili whispered, "Digby, this is a
cold world." I replied, "Never lot this occur
again." Ho answered, "Not on purpose."

Had Faith In the Hymn nook.
A story is told of an old clergyman who
had the most unbouuded faith in Watts'
hymn book. He was fond of saying that be
could never open at any pae without finding
an appropriate hymn. A mischievous sou of
his thought it would be a good thing to test
his father's faith. So he took an old song
and pasted it on one of the pages of the book,
over a hymn, so nicely that it could not bo
easily detected. At church oue Sabbath
morning the minister happened to open on
that very page, and commenced to read:
"Old Grimes isdeud." There was a sensa
tion la the audience, ne looked at the choir,
and they looked at bun; but such was hla
faith in Watts' hymns that he undertook it
again, commencing with the some line.
There was another sensation in tho audience.
Looking at it again, and then at the congre
gation and at the choir, be said: "Brethren,
it is here in the regular order in Watts' hymn
book, and we will sing it anyhow !" Dundee

obtain of a pure quality than soap. Unfortunately the mischief
by inferior soaps is done before their dangerous nature is discov
ered. The Ivory Soap is 99 pure, so may be relied upon as
entirely safe to use.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good at the 'Ivory'
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
