When the war ended and the upsrnes
ere free there was a pr.-iit enthusiasm
lr educating them. One of the first
lhools started was built on the edge of
his place by Colonel Trigg, who got a little
'"sehoolmarm," as they were termed, to
-nie down and teach it. It was soon
tilled by the colored population, the pupils
ranging from five to seventy-five years, all
studying "a-b ab, e-b eb." Even Uncle
Jack Scott, the colonel's head man, one
of the old timers, went in, and was trans
ferred from the stable to the schoolroom,
but soon dropped out.
It was several years after this that Uncle
Jack was working one day at a Watergate,
when the children came down the road
from school. They stopped and peeped
stolidly through the fence. Among them
was Jawnie, Mrs. Scott's hopeful, who
had proved an apter scholar than his
father. His bag was on his arm. He
climbed over the fence, and from the bank
gazed down apathetically at his father in
the water below. Presently he said:
"Oh, poppa, de teacher say yoti mus' git
me a geography."
Uncle Jack's jaw set. He dug on as if
be bad not heard. Then he repeated to
himself: "Geog'aphy geog'aphy. Marse
Conn, whut is dat? Vhut is a geog'aphy "
he asked looking up.
"A geography?" said his master. "Why,
R geography U a is a book a book that
tells about places and where they are, and
soon." He gave a comprehensive sweep
around the horizon.
"Yas, suli. Now I understands," said
Jack, going back to digging.
Presently he stopped and looked up at
Jawnie. "I say, boy, you tell de teacher
I say you better stick to yo' a-b abs and
yo' c bebs, an let geog'aphy alone. You
knows de way now to de spring: ande wood
pile, an de mill, an when you gits a little
bigger I'ze gwineto show youde way to de
hoe handle an de cawn furrer, an dat's all
de geog'aphy a nigger's got to know."
He dug on. Thomas Nelson Page in

The ti-f.al sea pasaes from the Conti
t?nt tu Britain, Strain) tells us, were those
from the mouths of the Rhine, Seine, Loire
ami (Jaronne, ln-sidi-s that from Wissaut,
which Julius Cicsar had used. The ex
ports were corn, cattle, gold, silver, iron,
skins, slaves and trained hounds (which
the GaVaS used for purposes of war), while
the imports were ivory bracelets and neck
laces, amber, glass vessels and small
wares. Diodorus, the Sicilian, a contem
porary of the last writer, informs us that
great quantities of tin were exported from
Britain (which, by the way, he carefully
distinguishes from the Cassiterides), and
that the people of Cornwall made the tin
into pigs of a knucklebone shape and car
ried them on wagons to an island called
Ictis, which Mr. Tylor identifies with Bern
bridge in the Isle of Wight, and Mr. Elton
with Thanet. At Ictis merchants bought
the tin and carried it to t he opposite coast
of Gaul, whence it was transported over
land on pack horses a thirty days' journey
to Marseilles, Narbonne aud the mouth of
The museum in Jermyn street contains
a model of an ancient block of tin, meas
uring 2 feet 11 inches long and 11 inches
broad. It roughly answers the description
of a knucklebone, although it bears a
much stronger resemblance to one of those
common objects of the seashore called
"sailors' purses," the four projecting arms
serving as a means of carrying it or lash
ing it to a pack saddle. The overland
route through Gaul, which is believed to
hav; been established three centuries pre
viously by the enterprise of Pytheas,
a Greek of Marseilles, had, so far as Korao
was concerned, superseded the more an
cient and circuitous passage from the east
ern jiarts of Britain to the mouths of the
Elbe and the Vistula and the caravan
journey across Germany. Gentleman's
