TRAPPING A GORILLA
Story of a Vicious Struggle In
the African Jungle.
A NET THAT FAILED TO HOLD.
Th? Snared Monster Broke Through
lie Meehee and Was the Cause ef
One Death Bsfore He Was Himself
Killed by the Attacking Party.
Captain Frits Duquesne. the Boer
ivory hooter, was com missioned by a
German natura list society to capture
ooe of each species of African quadru
mana. Ha was entirely suocaaatol In
the work, except that he could obtain
00 gorilla. Finally a pygmy pom ted
out a portion of the dank >mgte to
which a gorilla had been seen.
The captain Immediately arranged
his camp and laid his plana and made
preparations to trap the monster and
get him ullve if possible, though he
folly realised the danger of the under?
"For four days," said the captain,
-we camped to this hotbed of disease.
Beaters want out in aH directions
searching for the gorilla. At teat some
daap. wide scratches were found oo ?
cluster of Tinea, Oo close examination
the unmistakable hair of the gorilla
waa found oo a broken twig.
"After *ome hours wa found the tree
where too gorilla lived. Wa could tail
It by ton greasy appearance of the
bark, made so by the repeated rubbing
ef the gorilla's body. Wo couid to* by
the fresh marks, with sap still wet,
that the animal hud recently ascended
the tree. The scratches were short
and deep, showing that It had lifted
Itself op and had not slid doom, which
would bare made a long, shallow
"Wa spread a strong net around the
true In a circle sloping upward oo the
outer aide. Around the top of the net
there ware drawn ropes from four di
1 actions, bald by half a dosen nattres
hidden to the bush. These were to
bring too top of the net together and
thus bag our game,
"After waiting Home boors the leaves
above rustled and theo opened as a
six foot mole gorilla descended un
suspectiiigly and entered the trap, 1
signaled, the focr ropes were polled
at once, and we had our animal?for
a moment Be ioared In fury, twist
lng. jumping and biting the rope into
pieces. The natives were polled about
like dolls as ha tiled to reach first one
and than another. The professor Jump?
ed about in excitement, trying to fo?
cus a camera on the Infuriated animal.
"At last the mighty arms of the go?
rilla broke a holo through the not and
he tore the rest from him as though
It were a rotten rag. Most of the na?
tives fUd in diiunay. The professor
dropped his camera and tried to es?
cape. Id a moment the gorilla grasp
ad him in Its terrible hands.
"1 seised my rifle and fired In the
air to frighten the animal. In my po?
sition I could not shoot at him with?
out hitting my liiend. For a moment
the gorilla stood still, holding the now
unconscious man as though be were
a baby, the brate's Hps drawn bock
from his glistening teeth.
"1 thrust another cartridge In my
rifle. As I did so there was a buzz in
the air, and an arrow, shot by a na?
tive, pierced th<> gorilla's side. A roar
burst from his ted throat, and he drop?
ped his victim. Like a flash, before
1 could shoot, a native sprang from
the leaves and, half throwing, half
thrusting, drove an assagai Into the
gorilla's heart With a groan the
brute fell dead.
"Examining the professor, I found
that his right arm was broken and
that some of his ribs were crushed into
his lungs. We gave up the effort to
get a live gorilla and, placing the in?
jured man In a hammock, carried him
back toward the east coast
"He died on the road. Out on the
veldt beside a native village a lonely
little slab marked 'Carl Bloch* sticks
up above the grass. It Is the profess?
or's grave. Hunting is not all excit?

It has Its tears, like other things,"?

Queer Life In Johannesburg.
Here is an amusing description of
queer life in a Johannesburg residen?
tial block: "Nearly every one has one
room, and into this you cram nearly
all your worldly possessions and learn
all kinds of vanishing tricks and jug?
gling feats, such as having a combina?
tion bed and piano, using your wash?
ing stand for your writing table and
converting your hip bath by day with
rugs and cushions into an armchair.
In this abode of bliss you receive your
friends, male and female, and, if the
gentleman, sitting himself rashly on
the bed-sofa, vanishes into the piano
er the lady throws herself wearily Into
the hip bath armchair and it falls off
the packing ?case with her inside it
no one will turn a hair. You will in?
vite them to lunch or tea or dinner,
which ever is approaching, and the
gentleman will offer to go and buy
chops or kippers and fetch the milk
and when he returns will help you
cook, and you'll sit together and eac
it on the washing stand, which also
does duty as a dinner table on such
The Chief Justice.
?There are very few people who know
the proper designation of the man who
presides over the supreme court," said
the secretary of the senate.
"Generally he Is referred to as tht
chief justice of the United States su?
preme court In fact he Is the chief
justice. That's his official title. Most
of our presidents In nominating men
for this office have fallen into the error
of giving him the long title. When
George Washington nominated Oliver
Ellsworth of Connecticut for this post
he described It ss chief Justice of the
supreme court of the United States.
Andrew Jackson made the same error
in nominating Richard B. Taney. So
did Abraham Lincoln when he appoint?
ed Salmon P. Chase. Grover Cleve?
land was the first president to give the
correct designation. When he appoint?
ed Melville W. Fuller ha nominated
him to be chief Justice and nothing
else. Future nominations will be
framed In this fashion."?Washington
Fifty Dollar Dinners.
"Dinners at $50 a plate are as com?
mon in New York as five dollar
ners are in London and Paris," sa ^ a
chef. "Our extravagant dinners are
no better than the cheaper foreign
ones. Their cost Is caused not by the
exquisite cooking of exquisite materi?
als, but by the use of exotic foods
whose expense is their chief recom?
mendation. What do I mean by ex?
otic foods? Well, I mean cane sugar
instead of the ordinary beet root kind
for the compote; I mean wild rice in?
stead of the cultivated for the canvas
back; I mean sole brought alive from
England and Bterlet from Russia, when
our own native fish Is better condi?
tioned; I mean hothouse strawber?
ries as big as apples, pears as big as
cocoanuts and grapes as big as peaches,
all tasting rather like raw pumpkin,
but looking very fine in blizzard

it's only foolish people who eat fifty

The Auctioneer's Hourglass.
An auctioneer of Philadelphia col?

his ancient calling. He has, among
other things, an interesting set of auc?
tioneers' hourglasses. The auctioneer
a century or so ago concluded a sale
not by saying "Going, going, gone!"
and rapping the counter with his ham?
mer, but It was his better method to
turn up a free running glass toward
the end of the bidding and to end the
sale Irrevocably when the sand ran

Why the Menu Was Changed.
The culinary department of an East
Indian household, if the story of an
American traveler who has recently re?
turned from Calcutta is to be believed,
Is managed far differently from an
American kitchen. "Here we employ
an Ethiopian expert at so much a
week," says the Philadelphia Record
"There a cook would disdain to [dace
a weekly valuation on his services.
Illr, conditions involve a Mat rate of so
many shillings weekly for the furnish?
ing and preparation of provisions. This
system of putting the culinary depart?
ment out to contract causes a penurl
ousness on the part of the chef which
frequently is not for the best health
and welfare of the household. Short?
ly before last Christmas the above
named American tourist had ordered
his cook to have steak for dinner.
Broiled chicken was served Instead.
Pressed for his reasons for disregard?
ing the command of the head of the
household, tho cook explained that tho
chicken had taken sick and if it had
not been killed and served that day ho
was afraid he would have lost It."
He Believes in the Divine Right of
the Dollar to Rule.
The divine right of the dollar to
rule is the political creed of Senator
Nelson Wilmarth Aldrich of Rhode
Island, dictator of the United States
Senate. Senator Aldrich Is a tory, but
no fool. He is no messeinger boy for
Wall Street spirit. He Is Just as sin?
cere about the divine right of the dol?
lar to rule as was Louis XIV over ab?
solutism. The French King made a
prosperity issue of the divine right
of kings. Touch the dollar, such is
the Aldrich attitude, and you have a
The man, at sixty-eight shows a
strong face, ruddy with health, above
a big frame, well padded with muscle,
active middle age. Working over the
tariff in the stoke-hole heat of a
Washington summer, Aldrich wore
out his colleagues, from the young?
est Republican insurgent to the re?
cord holding long distance orator on
the Democratic side. When his lim?
ousine stalled in the mud of a coun?
try road last spring, the Senator
swung a shovel like a boy and laugh?
ed like a boy.
The senate boss will bully a fellow
senator, a cabinet officer, or even a
president, but he is always courteous
to a senate page. One of his col?
leagues may hesitate to question him,
but the youngest reporter never does.
He talks at all times with amazing
frankness. Stormy and domineering
on the floor, reading Republican in?
surgents out of the party with every
appearance of Intense anger. Aldrich
does not make public business a per?
sonal matter, as does Speaker Can?
non. Off his feet he is ready to Joke
or gossip with the rebels. Declining
j all formal functions, Aldrich keenly
enjoys the society of his friends. He
is an entertaining talker, and he has
the advantage of every ruler who un?
bends, that his unbending In this wise
cannot but flatter the most sophlstl
j cated. The personality of Aldrich is
another of his assets.
I The operation of the Darwinian
I law made him senate dictator. He
came to the senate twenty-eight years
ago, grounded In the game through
experience in a city council, a State
legislature, and the house of repre?
sentatives. Were he merely mediocre,
the senate system and Its traditions
of seniority would make him an in
fiuenclal figure now. The system is
log rolling buttressed by party regu?
larity. The veteran senators, who are
mostly New England senators, control
the committ e assignments. When It
comes to legislaticn, a tariff bill for
instance, the control gives them the
initiative and direction of it. They de?
cide on what New England must have
and they count the number of votes
they need, added to their own, to
form a majority. Those votes are se?
cured by giving enough senators what
they want out of i:he bill. Republican
senators left out in the cold must go
along or be guilty of party disloyaltj
Aldrich is the greateest expert at this
system that congress has seen.
His present danger, and the sys?
tem's danger, lies in the example of
rebellion set last spring by Beverldge,
of Indiana, and the Mississippi Valley
senators. They bolted the Aldrich
tariff. If such rebellion Is not only
to go unpunished but even to pros?
per, the Aldrich control and the old
senate system will totter. Last spring
the absence of effective Democratic
opposition offset, to a large degree,
the Republican defection. Aldrich
himself has never furnished a more
interesting study than now, when at
thvi height of his power is so seriously
threatened. Stand or fall, he will not
compromise. He was never so arbi?
trary as last spring.?American Mag?
The Children's Right to Knowledge.
The great Southern patriot, John
C. Calhoun, once said: "I pity the
man who is too poor or too mean to<
buy books for his children. He might
as well refuse them bread and meat."
How any one'can have less ambi?
tion than a desire to know as much
and as well as any one else, is in?
deed strange, and yet how many farm
boys am! girls fall to receive any en?
couragement to read and study and
barn all about the things they are re?
quired to do. No girl Is expected to
teach music or attempt stenography
Without a thorough study of these
things. No boy attempts to practice
medicine or law without a long course
of study and preparation. The things
wo know most of and can do best an
those in which we are most Inter' St
ed. An early knowledege of the facts
and principles underlying household
and farm practices and operations
will du more to develop intelligence,
industry, and a worthy ambition in
our farm boys and girls than all other
things combined. How Is this desire
for useful knowledge to b<> inspired
and the reading habit formed? They
will rarely be accomplished unleesone
or both parents possess them and
then only generally when a Complete
spirit of interest, sympathy and com?
radeship Is maintained between the
boys and girls and their parents or
teachers. Just as we believe the
mother wields the greatest influence
over the character or the boy or girl,
so we believe that the mothers of the
South are most largely responsible
for the lack of knowledge and inter?
est in household economics among
our girls and for the lack of desire for
farm life among our boys and girls
we fear the fathers and mothers will
have to be regenerated or Inspired
with a desire for knowledge for the
power it gives to do life's work.

Some extremists think it hardly the
thing for those counties going out of

it is seriously harmful, to ask others
to buy the stuff for the purpose of sell?

A College Education Possible.
Every boy and girl will not and
could not get a college education, and
it may be asked why a college educa?
tion is necessary when knowledge has
and may be obtained through read?
ing, studying and observation, with?
out the aid of the college. As the
first thousand dollars is the hardest to
make and save, so the first and fun?
damental knowledge is most difficult
to get. In fact, without help it will
generally never be obtained. The col?
lege is there best, surest and quickest
means 0f getting a start in education
and in most instances gives that of
value which is not obtained else?
where. If we are to do justice to our
boys and girls we must do everything
possible to inspire a desire to acquire
a college education. We do not even
need to furnish them money to obtain
this college education if we can in
spiie sufficient desire for it. To do
this we must ourselves appreciate and
respect such education. Any boy or
girl with a sound body and mind who
desires it sufficiently can without fin?
ancial help acquire a college educa?
tion. Our duty, then, is by example
and precept to inspire our boya and
girls with such a desire, and we may
do this with complete confidence that
it will pay. It may not supply the
boy or girl with "common" sense but
it will enable a better use of that al?
ready possessed and tend to a broad?
er, fuller and better life. Knowledge
is power?the greatest power.?Pro?
