IT WON'T GO.
Cru ade Against Kissing Started by a
From the ew York Horning Journal.
Dr. Reilly, of the Chicago board of
health, has perpetrated an outrage
which calls for the fiercest denuncia
tion of which any language is capable.
Not having the fear of God before him,
and being instigated thereto by the
devil, he has issued a circular in behalf
of ibe board denouncing the practice
of kissing. We de not know Dr.
Reilly and therefore cannot speculate
as to his-motives. If he is an old
fenleman hemay have lost his memory,
There may be here and there an old
man who delights not in kissing the
girls, and he may be one of them.
This, however, would not be a suf
ficient explanation unless it can be
shown that be has lost his memory.
If.be could look back to the -days of
his outh and of his robust manhood
he would be thrilled by the recollections
which cluster around those days.
Poor Dr. Reilly. He is so far re
moved from the sensations and from
the delicious. memories of the sensa
tions which are related to kissing that
he now goes. into a cold-blooded cata
logue of all the diseases which flesh is
snd husbands,' that this delightful
method of,closing the electric current
may bring, with it tuberculosis and no
iud of bacilli diseases. His scheme
will not work ; the kissing will go on.
It will gather momemtum from the
discussion. Dr. Reilly has taken
refge from the storm of ridicule
which has burst upon him by publish
ig opinions of certain other doctors
of renown upholding bis teachings.
Who cares? The doctors who endorse
him simply write themselves down as
fossils and dred remains of the man
ood lof an earlier age. Until they
can abolish human nature and take the
roses from the cheeks and lips of fair
maidens youth and manhood will still

THE STRANCI STORY
BY B. RIDER HAGGARD,
AUTuo OF "SHE," "KING SoLoMox'S C
MIrEs," ".TZSS," "CLEO
A NEW AFRICAN ROMANCE,
We k'ent up the valley, following the c
ourse of the stream for-about a mile;
then Indaba-zimbi made a sudden turn
to the right, along another kloof, of
which there were countless numbers in
the base of the great hill.
On we went through kloof after kloof.
Indaba-zimbi, who led us, was never at
a loss; he turned up gullies and struck
across necks of hills with the certainty
of a hound on a hot scent. At length,
after about three hours' march, we came
to a big, silent valley on the northern
slope of the great peak. On one side of
this valley was a series of stony koppies;
on the other rose a sheer wall of rock.
We marched along the wall for a dis
tance of some two wiles. Then sudden
ly Indaba-zimbi halted.
"There is the place," he said, point
ing to an opening in the cliff. This
opening was "'about forty feet from the'
ground and ellipse-shaped. It could not
have been more that twenty feet high
by ten wide and was partially hidden
by ferns and bushes that grow about it
in the surface of the cliff. Keen as my
eyes were I -doubt if I should ever have
noticed it, for there were many such
crags and crannies in the rocky face of
the great motintain.
We drew near and looked carefully at -
the place. The first thing I noticed
was that the rock, which was not quite
perpendicular, had been worn by the
continual passage of baboons; the sec
ond, that something white was hanging
on a bush near the top of the ascent.
It was a pocket handkerchief.
Now there was no more doubt about
the matter. With a beating heart I be
gan the ascent. For the first twenty
feet it was comparatively easy, for the
rock shelved; the next ten feet was
very difficult, but still possible for an
active man, and I achieved it, followed
by Indaba-zimbi. But the last twelve
or fifteen feet could only be scaled by

throwing a rope over the trunk of a.
easy. A foot or two above z y head the
handkerchief fluttered in the wind.
Hanging to the rope, I grasped it. It
was my wife's. As I did so I noticed
the face of a baboon peering at me over
the edge of the eleft, the first baboon
we had seen th~at moraing. The brute
gave a bark and vantished. Thrusting
the handkerchief into my breast, I set
my feet against the cliff and scrambled
up as hard as I cogild go. I knew that
we had ggp time to lose, for the baboon
would quickly alarm the others. I
gained the cleft. It was a mere arched
passage cut by water, ending in a
gully, which led to a wide open space
of some sort I looked through the
passage and gaw that the gully was
black with baboons. On they came by
the hundreds. I unslung my elephant
gun from my shoulders and waited, call
ing to the men below to .come up with
all possible speed. The brutes streamed
on down the -gloomy gulf towards
me, barking, grunting and show
ing their huge teeth. I waited till
they were within fifteen yards. Then I
fired the elephant gun, which was loaded
with slugs,right into the thick of them. In
that narrow place the report echoed like
a cannon shot, but its sound was quickly
swallowed in the volley of piercing'
hman-soundinlg groans and screams
that followed. The charge of heavy
lugs had plowed thr-ugh a number
of the baboons, of which at least a1
dozen lay dead or dying in the passage.
For a moment they hesitated, '.hen they]
came on again with a hideous clamor.]
Foitunately by this time Indaba-zimbi,
who also had a gun, was standing by my
ide, otherwise 1 should have been torn1
to pieces before I could reload. He fired
both barrels into them, and again
Ihecked the rush. . But they came on
again, and notwithstanding the appear
ance of two other natives with guns, which]
ey let off with mere or less success, we
should have been overwhelmed by the
eat and ferocious apes had I not by
,this time succeeded in reloading the
elenhant run. When they were right
on to us I-fired, with -even more deadly i
effect than before, for at that distance I
every slug told on tlheir long line. The
howls and screams of rage and fury
were now something inconceivable.
One might have thought we were doing <
battle with a host of demons: indeed in <
that light-for the overhanging arch of 1
rock made it very dark-the gnashing I
nouts and somber, glowing eyes of,
the apes looked like those of devils as 1
they are re;pesented by monkish fancy. <
But the last shotwas too much for them; I
they withdrew, dragging sonme of their
wounded with them, and thus gave us t
time to get our men up the cliff. In a I
few minutes all were there, and we ad- C
anced down the passage, which pres- o
mntly opened into a rocky gully with fl
shelving sides. This gully had a water- i
way at the bottom of it; it was about a 1
hundred yards long, and the slopes on l;
either side were topped by precipitous t.
cliffs. I looked at these slopes; they S
iterally swarmed with baboons, grunt- t<
ing, barking, screaming and beating
their breasts with their long arms in I
fury. I looked up the water-way; along '
It, accompanied by a mob, or, as it were, b
aguard of baboons, came Hendrika, her 0
long hair flying, madness written on her e
face, and in her arms was the senseless ce
form of little Tota.
She .saw us, and a foam of rage burst t
from her lips. She screamed aloud. To
me the sound was a mere articulate cry, jb
but the baboons clearly understood it, b
us. One bowider leap: Ua1p Ie a

oaning piteously, waited to be slain.
Hendrika saw that ~thd 'battle was
ost. Dropping .the child from her arms,
5he rushed straight at us, a very picture
>f horrible insanity.' I lifted my gun,
ut could not bear to shoot. After all
he was but a mad thing, half ape, half
woman. 'So I sprang to: one side, and
fhe landed full on Indaba-zimbi, knock

lo any more. Wailing terribly, she
rushed down the gully and through the
rch, followed by many of. the surviving
baboons, andvinished from our sight.

The fight was over. In all we had
Lost seven men killed, and several more
were severely bitten, while but few had
scaped without some tokens whereby
be might remember what a baboon's
teeth and claws are like. How many of
the brutes we killed I never knew, be
ause we did not count, but it was a vast
umber. I should think that the stock
must have been low about Babyan's
Peak for many years afterwards. From
bhat day to this, however, I have always
ivoided baboons, feeling more afraid of
hem than any beast that lives.'
The path was clear, and we rushed
rorward up the water-course. But first
e picked up little Tota. The child
was not in a swoon, as I had thought,
ut paralyzed by terror., so that she
ould scarcely speak. Otherwise she
was unhurt, though it took her many a
week to recover her nerve. Had she been
dder, and had she not remembered
endrika, I doubt if she would have re
~overed it. She knew me again, and
lung her .li~tle arms, about my neck,
et on with her in my ars SThe
ears that pierced my heart may well be
Lmagined. Should I find Stella alive or
lead? Well, we should soon know now.
We stumbled on up the stony water
ourse; notwithstanding the weight of
rota I led the way, for suspense lent
n wings. Now we were through, and
n extraordinary scene lay before us.
e were in a great natural amphithea
er, only it was three timcs the size of
y amphitheater ever shaped by man,
nd the walls were formed of precip
tous cliffs, ranging frem one to two
undred f.eet in height. For the rest,
the space thus inclosed was level, stud
ed with park-like trees, brilliant with
lowers, and having a stream running
through the center of it, that, as I after
wards discovered, welled up from the
round at the head of the open space.
We spread sourselves out in a line,
3earhing everywhere. for Tota vwas too
ivercome to Ue able to tell ..is where
tella was hidden away. For nearly
alf an hour we searched and zearched,
icaning the walls of rock for any pos
