An Fxeuraiuii fur Footl.
"When f had pitched our main camp
nt I.:ike Victoria Xyatiza we learned what
hunger meant. 1 had between three hun
dred ninl four hundred men in my care,
nml with ten of them I started out iu
bunt to circumnavigate the lake in search
of food and provisions as the main object
of the remarkable trip. Of course, the
exploration of the shores of the lake,
was another object. I discovered an is
land, Komla-ira, as I Hiihseqiiently learned,
wnere I saw onnaim trees. I (unit to my
self that here I was remote from the main
land jierhnps the first white man that
ever approached the island and I con
eluded that the natives, if the island were
inhabited, must be an unsophisticated
and, consequently, not a dangerous peo
ple. t e had suffered from hunger so ex
cessively that the stomachs of the natives
in my boat were fuirlv nucked uu with
An liihoMtlf able Reception.
Ve edued on to a little baylet chse up
the slmre, and t lien I noticed that the
people on the island were leaping and
bounding down to the water's edge t-o
meet us. lltit they were evidently not
bound for a friendly meeting, for I saw
them put rock in slings and the blades
of their ninny ears glistened iu the
bright sunlighr. I fold my boys to stop
rowing, but they insisted that the natives

few days ago and that we consequent ly
were safe. Despite my strict order my
men kept on plying theiroars until wewere
tilsmt lifty feet from the island and could
see every movement of the natives plainly,
lor n moment their warlike preparations
censed, and. with the friendly salutation.

jumped into the shallow water up to their
wai-ts until about fifty of them had
crowded around the Imat.

Those at the boat threw our hawser ashore,
and those on the luutl began to drag the
boat over the surf and the rocks nnd peb
bles of the la-ah until it was about sixty
b-et high and dry on the land. Our boat,
wnsn tender affair, made from brittle
ceilar for the purpose of making it so light
that it could ho carried on the heads of
my native followers hundreds of miles
overland. We were still iu the lsat. and
I was fearful that the dragging might
break the 1-ottom. Then what were we to

through . the ferns and shone on a multi

elaborate toilets. The Red room, into
which visitors were ushered ou their

rated. From this room the crowd passed
into the Blue room, thence into the Green

palms and ferns. The entire lower floor
of the mansion waa lighted by electricity
