THE WHITE NILE.
Mr. Roosevelt's Description of Night on
the Great African River.
We had come down through the sec?
ond of toe great Nyunza lakes, As we
?ailed northward its waters stretched
behind us beyond the ken ??f vision, to
where I hoy were fed by Streams from
the Mountains of the Moon On nur
left band rose the frownlug ranges on
the other side of which tin1 Kongo
forest lies like a shroud over the laud
On our right we |mhomm1 ihe mouth of
the Victorian Nile, eltve with inon
BtfOUS crocodiles and its banks Innren
of human Iii?- because ??! I be swarms
of tiie tly wbom? bile brings the t<>r
ment which ends In deuth. As night
fell we en i?n?d the White Nile and
?teamed and drifted down the mighty
stream its current swirled In long
curves between endless ranks of plum
ed papjrUS White and blue and red
tiie OoatlUR water lilies covered the
Ingoons ami the utill inlets among the
feeds, and here and there the lotus
lifted its leaves and Mowers Stiffly
nbove the surface. The brilliant trop?
ic stars made lanes of light on the lap*
pins water as we ran on through the
night. The river horses roared from
the reed beds and snorted and plunged
beside tbe boat, and crocodiles slipped
sullenly into the river as we glided by
Toward morning a mist arose and
through it the crescent of the dying
moon shone red and lurid. Then the
sun Hamad nloft. and soon the African
landscape vast, lonel}'. mysterious,
stretched on every side In a shimmer?
ing glare of heat and light, and ahead
of us the great, strange river went
twisting nway Into the distance. ?

A DUKE'S LOVES.
The Force of the Attacks Were Meas
ured by His Appetite.
In the late eighteenth century a Dr.
Moore was tutor to the young Duke
of Hamilton of those days, whom be
accompanied on the usual continental
tour. The duke was then eighteen and
was susceptible to feminine charms.
He bad just fallen a victim to the
black eyes of a married lady when Dr.
Moore made this report to the youth?
ful peer's mother:
"This is the third passion the duke
baa bad since we crossed the sea. They
generally affect his appetite, and 1 can
make a pretty good guess at the height
of his love by the victuals he refuses
to eat. A slight touch of love puts
blm immediately from legumes and
all kinds of jnrdlnage. If it arises a
degree higher he turns up his nose at
fricassees and ragouts. Another de?
gree and be will rather go to bed sup
perless than taste plain roasted veal
or poulets of any sort. This Is the ut?
most length his passh n bus ever come
hitherto, for when he wns at the court
with Mile. Mnrchenville. though she
put him entirely from greens, ragouts
and veal, yet she made no impression
on his roast beef or mutton appetite.
He fed plentifully upon those lr spite
of ber charms. 1 Intend to make a
thermometer for the duke's passion
with four degrees?ill greens. <2) fric?
assees and ragouts. (3) roust veul and
fowls. (4i plain roast mutton or beef?

Pawning Bank Bills.
"Pawnbrokers don't thiuk much of
ten dollar bills as pledges." said tbe
city salesman. "1 sow a mun pawn
one the other day for $0.o0. When
asked why he didn't spend his $10 in?
stead of soaking it for a little more
than half the amount he explained that
he wanted to keep that particular bill.
Twice before he had tried to keep a
certain bill by giving It as security to
, a friend who had so many bills that he
wouldn't need to spend that particular
one, but both times the friend got his
money mixed and the keepsake was
. lost after all. This time he depended
I upon the pawnbroker to tide him over.
j To paw n money si ruck me as a very
curious proceeding, but the broker as?
sured me that it is frequently done by
people who attach a sentimental value
to a particular bill or coin."?New York
"Yes." said the specialist, as he stood
at the bedside of the miser millionaire.
"1 can cure you."
"But what will it cost?" came feebly
from the lips of the lick man.

Weighing machines and scales of
some kind were in use 1SO0 B. C, for
it is said ihat Abrabanffttt that time
"weighed out" 4()0 shekels of silver,
current money, with the merchant to
Ephron. the Hittite. as payment for a
piece of land. Including the cave .and
all the standittg timber ' in the Held
and in the fence." This is said to be
the earliest transfer of land of which
any record survives and that the pay?
ment was made in the presence of
' witnesses. The original form of the
weighing scale was probably a bar
suspended from the middle, with a
board or shell suspended from each
end, one to contain the weight, the
other to contain the matter to be
weighed The steelyard was probably
so Called from the material of which it
was made and from Its former length.
It is also known as the Roman bal?
ance and Is of great antiquity.
The Spinning Mule.

anxious and secret experimenting, pro

, bSC&UBe it was a kind of hybrid be?
tween Bargrenves' jenny and Ark
Wright's water frame. The raw ap?
prentice lad was, however, no match
in cunning for the cotton lords, who
soon found out the secret of his new
machine and shamelessly robbed him
of the fruits of his Ingenuity. Many
years afterward, it is true, they used
their Influence to secure for him a par?
liament ;:rant of ?5.000, but he was
, then a broken hearted and disappoint?

late to bo of any real service.
