. BARTERING ON THECONGO
Produce and. Ivory Sold for
I/luskets and Cloth.
Great Aptness for Bargaining Displayed
by the Natives.
An article which appears in All the
Year Hound gives this interesting description
of the primitive methods of
triulo which still obtain in the new
Conco Free State. South America; I
When a sufficient number of the
men have crowded into the room to fill
the space before the rail, they are admitted
through it by the headmen, and
squat in squads upon the floor before
the weighing machine, at which the
trader takes his seat, while his assistant
stands at the shelves, ready to redeem
the little chits or "books," as
thev are rnllnrl which tVio onninr mnn
will give for the number of "longs"
which he may agree to pay to each
man for his produce. The produce?
in little mat bags containing- from ten
to thirty-two pounds (an arroba), and
Bometimes but a handkerchief-full of
rubber, peanuts or gum copal?he puts
into the scale. If it is satisfactory in
quality it is bargained for in the
"longs" referred to?so many for so
many pounds of peanuts, rubber or
gum, according to the value of the
produce. On the first bargain made
there depends much, as the most experienced
and wily old black usually
offers the first bag of produce of each
kind. 33y the price he obtains all the
others are guided, and, where there are
more factories than one in a station,
where he goes they all follow.
After the bag of produce is bought
or "passed in," as the term is, it is paid 1
for in the various articles of the trade,
at the discretion chiefiy of the trader? 1
that is to say, no native can have his
produce paid for solely in one article
of trade. lie cannot have all cloth, or
all muskets, or all powder; but ho
must toko a selection of articles, the
relative values of which are fixed by
the "long," the standard of quantity
and quality. This consists of six yards
of common cotton cloth, or panno da
costa; less of finer cloth, according to
quality; more of coarser cloth; and so
on until every article of the trade, to
muskets and gunpowder, the most
valuable in it, are disposed of in relation
to the "long."
As the bags are rapidly passed in,
the contents are emptied out in heaps
on a clear space of the lloor, and then
the ivory men, or "bushmen" as they
are called, knowing they have the raoro
valuable articles to sell, though small
In quantity in the present c;ise, come
forward, and one of them unslings
the tusk he has, and places it in a
spring balance. It is examined for
cracks, and the hollow root probed for
mud or stones, and after the weight is
^ot at, a "mouth" or offer is made to
the native "gentlemen," or brokers of
# the "cabucca" (a caravan of ivory) in
three articles of trade?muskets, powder
and cloth, so many muskets, so
many kegs of powder, so many yards
r>f cloth, according to the weight of
the "tooth" and the value of ivory.
This is called the "bundle," which is
afterward divided into a great many
n pf i a! ^ 4 ? .. -1 -
n>uuo3 ui truue, according to tixed I
rules between the white traders and J
the ' gentlemen" or "brokers," and at
each exchange these "gentlemen" and
the "headmen" of the factory keep
something for themselves from the
" bushraen." The method of buying
ivory is distinct from that of buying
any other kind of produce, and is intricate,
and is supposed to be made so
partly in order to puzzle the "bushmen"
as to the real value of the ivory
chey have to sell. These "bushmen"
bring it from the very far interior,
whence they have travelled for months,
and ate easily bewildered, being, naturally,
not nearly so sharp as the men
of the coast tribes, who bring in the
lesser kind of produce, and every man
of whom is a born haggler.
As with the other kinds of produce,
what is given for the first lot or
tooth" offered is the criterion of the
relative value of all, and so difficult is
it to fix a price, and so long a haggle
takes place, that the "gentlemen* are
told more than once to take it away.
But they always come back to the
charge, asking another keg of powder,
or another gun, and coming down to a
bottle of gin or a "long" of cloth, and
then to something for "top" of the
"bundle," which is always expected,
and then tho "dash," or furtiier pres-1
ent, and top of all, the "matabicho"
? (Portugese, "kill-the-worm") or drink.
In fact, there Us no end to the "squeezing"
to whicra the white man is subject
in the trai e witli these people, and
this not only in ivory but in everything.

gi|^very wary to! prevent being overreach

It is well on to noon before the last
tooth is bought and paid for, and the o
crowd of natives, who have been 8
storming and kfughing, chattering and I
grumbling by turns, are turned out v
into the yard, with their goods on their I
heads, to take their way to the "town." j s
When all are out, the cargo-room door ' n
is locked, and the white men return to ! r
the dwelling part of the house, where ; t
the native boys are setting breakfast s
for them. 1:
Don't Stimulate the Young. I
If you give to a healthy man of | ^
twenty, who has never tasted it, eith- c
er a cup of tea or coffee, it will keep t
him awake all night. If you give one g

give him a headacha If you persuade s
one who has never smoked to try a v
cigar, it will probably nauseate him, ?
and for a time make him severely sick. a
Now, what is the conclusion from \
these facts? Simply that tea, coffee
fermented and distilled liquors and a
tobacco are in their nature medicinal L
are, in brief, drugs, and that, at least ?
while the body is growing, while it ?
still has a superabundence of vital j,
force, it does not need either the pre- r
servative properties of tea or coffee, 01 11
the digestive and tonic ones of wine, 8
beer or brandy, or the soothing powei
of tobacco, to keep it in health and
well bt-ing; but that, on the contrary, ti
when the youthful system is in its nat- g
ural statt: and either is offered it, dis- 11
turbance, more or lees pronounced, if ?
the result. tl
What terrible responsibility, then,
do mothers and fathers incur whc
from babyhood allow their little children
to drink tea or coffee,?nay, be- j
fore the little things think of asking tl
for it, tempt them to sip it out oi h

high to low, are always anxious to bt

The Lionfonaut's Fate. b
One evening after our work for tht T
day was done, our jovial little comrade
Elisha Barrows, was seen walking h
down toward the officers* quarters
His face, always the picture of mirtij
and fun, was now covered with sad- ?
ness. He had just come from his tent 01
Corporal Lewis was one of his ten> ii
mates. Lewis, one of our best sol- u
diers, was a general favorite, and es
pecially so with Lieutenant Burnham
one of the warmest hearted and moal
sympathetic men in the army.
As Barrows came near Lieutenan ^
Burnham his face grew more sad, and it y
mournful tones he asked, "Lieutenant r
did you hear about Corporal Lewis?' y,
In his quick, impulsive way, the Lieu 11
tenant answered; "No; what is tin
matter with him?" With a voici
trembling with emotion Burrows slowly
replied: "lie is now in his tent dye
ing." With tears of heart-felt sorrow ?
and sympathy coursing down hii
cheeks, Burnham rushed to the sol- J
diet's tent, exclaiming, "Poor Lewisl' ?
Toor Lewis!" and found him?sitting
ueiore a glass dyeing his new-growi Bh
mustache.?"Army Life," by A. O

A prominent Methodist clergymar T
tells the following story of an old Bap y<
tist minister who always contrived t<
introduce baptism into his sermons
whatever his text might be. The old E
gentleman was asked one day if hi u
could possibly preach a sermon with- ?
out alluding to his favorite doctrine ?
He snid he could, and would, if thej ?
would give him a text without an]
baptism in it. The first chapter ol }]
Ezra, ninth verse, was selected, whicl
icuus a? iouows: "Ana this is th< J
number of them: thirty chargers o:
gold, a thousand chargers of silver Cl
nine and twenty knives." He entered
the pulpit, rend his text, and said
"My brethren, I don't see what thej ?
wanted of so many knives unless il ?
was to cut the ice in order to baptizi *
the people."?Franklin Spectator. a

To begin v-j h the houses must not g
nly be air-tight, but be heated by the
un or artificial heat. The building may

yest, with windows in front; or made 3
pith a roof having a long slope on the si
outh side, with an ordinary greenhouse
ash to six feet, and a short slope of roof |
t the rear. Such a house may have the p]
ear walls five feet and the front ones
hree to four feet high, while the peak of A
he roof is only seven. This affords
tanditig room for a man, doirrs five feet '
ligh at one end, and in the partitions pi
,mple room for roosts, nests, etc. The j th

as they are thus out of the way of ta
Iraughts. Let the perches be low, sav hi
wo and a half feet high, or even two
eet would be better. Proper means
hould be taken to ventilate the house,
ud dust baths, etc., judiciously placed ki
a convenient places. The floor should
?e made of plank, stouo or cement, but
ho best possible article is sifted coal u1
shea, levelled, wet and pounded hard, ti
ay three inches in depth. The woodwork
ought to be made of planed stuff,
o that it can be painted in the joints fc
when put up, which tills up the cracks, fa
nd greatly reduces the hiding places of di
