He alarmed the government of Vene

hasten with their tongues hanging out,
to use a figure of speech, and servants,
attaches and so forth came here from
Sonth America with their coattails ex
tending forth at right angles to their
persona. ' The nabob was brought forth
and required to give bonds in. the sum
of $5,000, which he did by skinning one
bill off the top of a UttlaroU about the

This showed that be did not smuggle
because he had to in order to procure
bread to eat. On further examination
it was found that the 280 pieces of
jewelry were absolutely free all the
time, and that all this agony and ex

food incident to a month in jail were
entirely uncalled for. This should teach
us always to be honest, at least where it

Every month, 1 think it ia, there is a
sale of unclaimed gooda at the custom
bouse. If not called for after the ex
piration of five years, if I am not mis
taken, these goods are sold at auction
It is great fun to watch this sale, for
each buyer gets his pig in a poke. Of
course there is a valuation written upon
it, bnt that may be over or under the
At the last sale a poor man who will
no doubt be a wealthy man before he
dies if he should work it right bought
a package of bird skins, for taxiderming
purposes, I dare Bay. He bought them
for fifty cento, the price for bird skint
biding a little depressed that day, and the
quotations closing extremely weak and
enervated. The poor man took his bird
skins home, and undid packthread
by which they were secured. He showed
them to several people, one of whom
offered him $.1 for them. Then another,
who offered him $10. . Finally he waa
offered $100 for the fifty cent bird skins
by a thorough taxidermist, and while
the owner was chewing a straw and
thinking whether or not ho would take
that or wait for $.jOo an officer came
along and seized them.
When I was at the custom house this
man had just made the rounds of tht
whole business, from the janitor up to
tne collector, and like Mr. O'Flahertv

was O'Flaherty; that he controlled thirty

with the heart breaking interrogatory,

"Mr. OTlaberty, why don't yoa keep
ducks?" so the poor man who bought
the bird skins and was offered $100 fot
them, and did not accept H, after taking
thirty days off and visiting each of the
cnstom house people for an hour or so
each day, succeeded in getting an order
from the collector requiring the cashier
to refund the fifty cents.
It seems that the package was improp
erly sold, having been by mistake placed
among the uncalled for goods, when in
fact it had only recently been received,
and was called for im.-nediately after
the sale. When he wei.t away some one
heard him say that be almost wished he
had sold the birdlings at $100. And
with that he looked bitterly at the four
bits which he held in his clinched hand.
We should learn from this not to be

M. Stanley, the famous explorer of the
dark continent, can at least derive
tbe benefit and instruction of reading a
history of hit thrilling and interesting id
ventures which have been published in
twolarge and handsomely bound volun es.
With the very first chapter one becoiaes
thoroughly imbued with the magnitudi of
tbe undertaking, end interest in the Bel
fare and safe return of the daring ex
plorer, cautes the reader's imagination
to follow step by step those of Stan ley
and his band, Bent on a humane n is
sion the brave leader is forced to go e-'en
where bis steps would probably other ise
have turned back, and this fact al ne
lends a power and charm to the n arret ive
which would not mark a mereiy ecient ific
recital. PufcWe Opinion in an exhaustive
review of tbe books says:
"We feel when we close tbe hook a
great sense of responsibility of Christian
nations to let go their squabbles over ter

these vol tunes be read rrore and m ore
widely, for they speak t the heart mil
heroism of man. In straightforward,
rugged, often broken, but always plain
style, at limes tising into passages of
great natural ebquence the narration
proceeds till wi;draw a breath of riWn
relief when the whole is over. Ilr.
