11le SXiafthe African explorer
.. i -his way down the great
os0 union with the sea he was
rat to discover, he had thirty-two
ventures with the hostile natives in
4se of which he lost a number or men,
4.tof these adventures is thuR describ
by a correspondent of the uoston
0 up nal: The Inhabitants hal assembled
the bank, seeing this curious boat
Si4ed with strangers approaching, and
taA~ey's men said they thonght the
qriI which were almost deafening, of
friendly nature. But Stanley thought
-49t. To him the cries seemed warlike.
H6wever, visions of eggs, chickens,
resh milk, and prehaps goat's lebhi,
for his exhausted men, :1ashed before
eyes, and he gave the signal to put
14to the cove. No sooner had the boat
I-ftached the sloping bank, than it was
ia)uled fifty yards up on the shore by a
Udred hands, and before Stanley
and his'stonished men could realize
where they were, they found them
selves in the centre of a circle of savages
each of whom was aiming an arrow at
the unlucky wightA. There were sov
oral hundred of these people, called the
Bumbrich, after the name of their Is
land on the shores, and- Stanley says
that he expected to be instantly massa
cr'ed. His gun and those of his men lay
in the bottom of the boat, and to stoop
to pick them up would have brought a
shower of arrows and instant death.
So he endeavored to reason with the
savages, and showed them some cloths
and beads, WILhCi they accepted. They
.rowded aroud the boat, however,and
o6e inan-took hold of Stanley's hair and
gave it a violent Wrench, thinking that
it was a cap and would come off, dis
closing wool. This was hard to bear,
and meanwhile, one of Stanley's men
received a stunnit.g blow from a spear
handle. Then the explorer made an
other litte speech, asking for food and
to be allowed to continue his journey
promising more cloth and beads. The
savages then made several ferocioub de
monstrations, rushing down upon him,
gnashing their teeth and shaking their
spears in his very face; but they (lid
not kill him and finally retired to con
suilt. This mortal agony of suspense
lasted from nine in the morning until
three in the afternoon, during whl,)h
time Stanley did not get out of h is boat,
nor did lie take his eyea off the island
era. At lest, seeing no chance of any
thing but death, he gave the signal to
his men to be ready at a certain cry to
drag the boat ito the water. Presen
tly the islanders began to return, and
something told Stanley not to wait. So
he shouted the word of command, and
the boat flew down the slope into the
water, his men diving all around it like
so many muskrats, in their eagerness
to escape the javelins and arrows which
they knew would come. Stanley pick
ed up his elephant gun, and, as an is
lander bounding on the beach waa pre
paring to fire an arrow after the boat,
he shot him, and the Immense bullet,
passing through the savage's body,
killed another behind him, Meantime
it was discovered that the oars were
lost, and Stanley's men were pad
dinug with their hands as fast as they
could to get out of arrow range, when
they were horrifled by seeing thirty-six
savages put off from Bumbrich in three
large canoes. The men in Stanley's
boat were anxious to tire at once, but
he ordered them to allow the canoes to
approach, and succeeded in sinking
two of themn by firing into their sides
at the water line. In t wo minutes two
dozen savages were struggling in the
water and beating away for the shore
with vigorous strokes ; the third canoe
renounced pursuit, and Stanley and his
men found themselves safe, but still
half (lead from hunger when they
joined the main body of the expedition.
Crazy People at the White Hlotne.
Crazy people are constantly calling
at the White House on all sorts of
errands with the President, but the
ushers generally find out their inflrm
ity and get them out of the building in
some way or other, though some slip
past into the Presidential presence, and
others have to be turned over to tihe
police. There are a few who come
regularly, like the old man living out
near Bladensburg, who calls every two
months to claim thc presidential chair
to which he has been elected. lie would
have come sooner to enter upon his
duties, but work on his farm preyented
his leaving home. The lust time he
called he was more persistent than
usual, and informed the ushers that lie
would make no changes, except to turnm

FARM AND GARDEN.
WAMpxzss 1 Housss.-Many house
holders are sorely troubled by the
growth ot fungi in damp rooms, to
which they communicate, in a short
time, an unpleasant smell and an un.
wholesome atmosphere. It Is not only
our collars that are apt to be affected by
fungold growth, bup the walls of the
adjacent rooms, and many bed rooms on
the ground floor are similarly renderou
useless after a moist season. Many re
medies have been proposed to destroy
this fungold growth, or to prevent its
occurence; but hitherto these remedies
have been too expensive or totally
inefilcacious. Recently an alcoholic
solution of five grammes of salloylho
acid per litre of water for washing the
walls of rooms has ben recommended.
This Is exactly one-half per cent., or
one part salloylic acid for 200 parts
liquid. No doubt the mold may be de
stroyed temporarily by this as by many
other solutions, such, for instance, as
corrosive sublimate or earbollo acid.
The true remedy, however, is not this
teulporary expedient, nor attempting
to itde the dampness by enamel paints,
ete.; it Is to cut oil the source of molst
tire and to put the waLerproof materials
outside and not inside the walls.
Tux RIaEST HAY.-Grass made into
hay in siuli a manner as to retain the
most possible of all its natural juices,
makes the richest and best hay. In
order to do this it should be exposed to
the sun as little as possible, as a briglht,
clear sun is very apt.to burn, and thus
reduce quality. llay made in the shade
comes tuo nearest to natural grass; but
this is impracticable. The nearest ap
proach is either to cure In the cocic
with hay caps, or by constant, frquent
stirring with the tedder; thus curing
In the air more, and sunning small por
tlons only. One day's curing is suil
clent, provided the air is dry and dry
tig, where the grass is dry when cut,
and does not yield over tvo and one
half tons of (ry hay to the acre. If to
be left out over night, it should be
raked and put into cocks while yet
warm. before any dew begins to fall in
the af'ternoon. The time when mois
ture begins to collect in the atternoon Is
earlier tLian most persons are aware of;
therefore It is best to be in season.
WE flnd the rollowing description of
a patent fruit picker: -it Is simply a
ring or collar of siee- metal four or
five inches high and the same in diam
eter, with the upper portion formed
into half a dozen points like a crown,
each being covered with an badia rub
ber disc or shield to prevent the fruit
from injury by contact. A socket in
the side receives a light pole of any
required length, and fron the bottom
of the ring or crown extends a light
hose of cotton drilling or other light
material to convey the fruit to the hand
of the operator or into a basket, wagon
or wherever desired. Standing on ,he
ground, the operator reaches for the
fruit, the points of the crown p-ssing
on each side of the stem, and a light,
upward shove easily detaches the fruit
and It drops down through the crown
and hose. The operator can hold the
pole In one hand and the hose in the
other, or the hose can be hooked to a
small, movable bracket placed on the
pole for that purpose, thus allowing of
handling the polo with both hands, or
an assIstan b can manage the hose."

TjE PRESRVATION OF CIDER.-A
pure, sweet older . is only attainable
from clean, sound fruit'and the fruit
should therefore be carefullyexaminued
and whip before grinding. in the
press use hairoloth or gunny fit place
of straw. As the older runs from the
press let it pass through a hair sieve
into a large open vessel that will hold
as much juice as can be expressed
in one day. in one day, or sometimes
less, the pomie. will raise to the top
and in a short time grow very thick.
When little white bubbles break
through it draw off the liquid through
a very small spigot, placed about three
Inches from the bottom, so that the less
may be left behind. The cider must be
drawn off Into very olein, sweet casks
preferably fresh liquor casks, and
closely watched. The moment the
white bubbles, before mentioned, are
perceived risig at the bunghole, rack
it again, it la usually unnecessary to
repeat this three times. Then till up
the cask with cider in every respectlike
that originally contained in It; add a
tumbler of warm sweet oil, and bung
up tight. For very fine cider it is custo
mary to add at this stage of the process,
about half a pound of glucose (starch
sugar), or a smaller portion of white
sugar. The cask should thon be allow
ed to remain in a cool place until the
older has required the desired flavor. In
the meantine clean barrels for its re
oeption should be prepared as fol
lows:-rSome clean strips of rags are
aipped in melted sulphur, lighted and
burned in the bunghole, and the bung
laid loosoly on the end of the rag so as
to retain the sulphur vapor within the
barrel. Then tie up half a pound of
mustard seed in a coarse muslin bag
aud put in the barrel, fill the barrel
with cider, and add about a quarter of
1 pound of Isinglass or ine gelatile
[lissolved in hot water. This is the old
rashioned way, and will keep cider in
the sane condition as when it
went into the barrel, if kept in a cool
place, for a year. Professional cider
makers are using calcium sulphite
(sulphide of lime), instead of mustard
%nd sulphur vapor; it Is much more
Donvenilent and effectual. To use It, It
Is Aimply requisite to add one-eighth to
mne-quarter of ii ounce of sulphite to
each g.allon of cider i the cask, first
mixing the powder in about a quart of
Lho cier, then pouring it back into

Actors have hard times as well as
other folks, and the experience of the
talented Mr. Masher proves it. It
seems that he was playing in a piece in
Detroit, which required him, at a very
thrilling point, to pull a handkerchief
from the hip pocket of another actor and
present it to the heroine with some very
glowing words. The other actor, Mr.
Snigg, was somewhat addicted to the
use of liquor, and while lie dressed for
the performance he got too full and went
to sleep. Then some of the other actors
removed the handkerehief from his
pocket, and cutting, a hole In the
pooket, drew a corner of Mr. Snigg's
shirt into It. It was a peculiarity of
Mr. Masher that when he acted lie got
so dead In earnest that nothing could
stop him, andi when it camne to the
handkerchlef scene, and he rushed up
to the only half awake Snigg, he grab
bed for the handkerchief and found It
didn'tcome, but lie failed to notice the
situation, The piece couldn't go on till
Ie produced the handkerchief, so lie
gave another desperate tug. The only
result was that a wild look came in
S igg's eye and he tried to whisper to
Masher that there was something
wrong. But Masherdidn't understand.
The people were waiting for him; it
was an awkward pause. Masher was
a man of great srenght and he gave a
last desperate tug at what he believed
wats the handkerehiof. It came, but
with a sound of tearing, and Snigg was
yanked quite oir his feet, and his
eyes nearly burst from their Rockets
from the pressure on ii throit, before
the neck bant br ,ke. M isher got most
of the garment except the sleeves, and
the sudden disappearance of Snigg's
shirt boson cro-ated much excitement
in the audience. Even then, Masher
didn't notice what lie had done, and
rushings forward tendered the garment
to the horo:ne. But she screatued and
fainted and the audience began to yell,
and Snigg, having recovered his breath,
became terribly mad and made a rush
at Masher with a property sword and
chasedl him about, and the stage mana
ger, who was nearly wild, Jumped in
and decliared that Masher had disgraced
his house, and then the curtain went
downl, and a little while after the mnan --
ger came ini front of it wit,h a black eye
and (dismissed the audience. Sn igg and
Masher now both want situations and
each other's gore.

Patti's IHome in south Wales.
Patti has fixed her couintry hDme in
ire~conshuiae, South Wales, where she
some time since bought a property
called Craigy-y nos Castle, and it is a
curious coineideneo that Craigy is said
to lie mean, in the patois of night
ingale. Tihe castle, an Elizabethan
structure, is finely placed on the slope
of a hill, and on its imp)rovem)ent and
that of its grounds thme great prima

nmot have purchased thle p)rouerty with
out naturalization, or a special act of
the Legislature, biut Englan)d is more
liberal, anid though she has but little
land, it is free to all whlo please to pur
chaise It. The castle is twvo hours' drive
from the Swvansea Station, but a vic
toria with four beautiful pet ponies,
soon carries visitors over the gro'ind,
and there Is talk of a railroad which
#111lgIve a station necar the castle. A
visitor dlescribes its mistress as singing
all over the house and garden. The
house is cranumed with beautiful things

glass used( ini the table servIce. At this
ietr'eat the .1liva sumptuously entertains
her friends, and lately surprised them
with a splendid dlisplay of firewvorks by
a London pyrotechnist, lighting up
vividlly the woods and rocks of her love
ly domamn. When the display ended,and
the moon emerged fromt the clouds,
there was a call for a song, and step
p)ing out on a toerrace windlow, whither
a piano wvas wheeled, she sang, amid a
siiemnce broken only by the low purlinug
of a brook over the pebbles, "Home,
