Our camp is made in a grove between the water hole on the north and the thicket on the south, and right through the center of the grove, leading from thicket to water, is a hard-beaten path. The elephant, rhinoceros, giraffe, zebra, springbok, buffalo, lion, hyena, wolf and jackal have trod, this path on occasions. The hunters have driven the big game out of this section of Griqua Land, but the path is still in use. Even before the sun goes down a big hyena, panting with thirst, dodges us to the right to get to the water, and three wolves emerge from the thicket, to jnake a hasty retreat at sight of the camp. As soon as supper is disposed of the oxen are secured to the wheels of the wagons, a large quantity of fuel Ibrought in, and then the forty natives 0 close up the openings with a breast ''work of thorn bushes. They make this breastwork thickest and highest pn the south side, and they further Strengthen it with sharp stakes as in frbatis. I ask them why they do this, nd old Mingo grins and replies: "This is the path by whicli the king pomes and goes, and he will be angry when he finds us here." The sun went down, darkness came tike the fall of a curtain, and presently we heard from the king. A mile or more away to tho north, in some dark, pool spot in the great thicket, he had been sleeping away tlia summer'sday. ,est and sleep had brought thirst. He would drink his fill and then stalk through his realms and exhibit himself to his subjects, asking no favors, but commanding servility from all. I heard the distant rumble of thunder and stood up to see from which direction the storm was approaching. "It is not thunder, but tho voice of Ihe king," said Jlingo as he leaned pgainst one of the trees. Five minutes later tho sound came again. It was nearer now, and this Itimo I could not be deceived. Lions in captivity will roar when excited, but it Is a wvak imitation of the voice of a lion on his native heath. The roar of a full-grown lion as ho moves out of his lair for the night is a signal to every living thing for miles around that he is astir and a challenge to every thing with life to cross his path at their periL 2tfo hunter hears it without feel ing awed at its immense volume and power without making obeisance to the throne from which it comes as a proclamation. , There is a longer interval this time. His highness has got our scent and is perhaps a bit puzzled and put out, though all the time'he is advancing to ward us and intends to make a thor ough examination. During this inter val the oxen crowd closer together and begin a low, sad moaning, and after heaping fuel on the fires tho natives hide away in wagdns or find safe places in tho tree tops. The captain and I are left alone, and as we get out our double-barreled shotguns and slip in buck shot cartridges the king reaches the edge of tho thicket and stands for a moment, without the slightest move ment, to stare at us. It is a starlit night, and Mingo, who is perched above my head, can plainly see his jroyal highness and will keep us posted. Now comes a roar which drops half , the cattle to their knees and fills the ear like thunder rumbling along a mountain side. It begins as if the lion were in a deep pit almost at our feet, nud when it reaches its climax the bel lowing of a dozen oxen would bo drowned out. The dying away is like the beginning, but through it all is a savagenebs that tries the nerves far more than the brief roar of a tiger as he leaps up for a charge. We are camped on tho king's highway, and that roar expresses his surprise and indignation at our audacity. The glare of the camp-fires is a new sight to him. The big white-topped wagons have never greeted his eyes before. As lie stands and switches his tail about he must realize that the camp is a strong one and that he has no friends within, but fear is not mingled with his indig nation. "The king is coming, master!" shouts Mingo from his perch, and we get ready to greet him. There is no more roaring. He has Ehallenged us and defied us, and now e is coming to punish us for daring to obstruct the path which perhaps ho first marked out as a royal highway. Everything is so quiet for a moment that "wo can hear his footfalls. lie does not advance a few feet and then halt, but comes stright on, his head well up. his eyes shining, and his long tail switching tho bushes each side of the path. Mingo can read his inten tions by his walk, and he shouts down to s: j "Look out. master! ne will come Into the camp!" The captain took a tree about twenty feet from the ono sheltering me, and we dropped to our knees ar.d brought our guns to a ready. The path was midway between us. The king did not change his pace until he camo within 100 feet of the breastwork. Then he uttered a catlike snarl, broke into a run to get his spring, and five feet from the thorn bushes he lifted him self and came sailing over like a great bird. The height was fourteen feet. The distance on a straight line was thirty-two feet. Roth of us tired at him before he landed and again as he touched the earth, but all four shots missed. He bounded up the path between us cleared one of tho tents at a leap, and landed among the oxen. The natives raised a direful yell, and to this was added the bellow ing of the frantic cattle, and before we could seize fresh guns aud cover lifty feet of ground the king had taken his departure. One ox was dying of a broken back and two others were badly clawed, but that was getting off cheap. The beast kept on to the water hole, quenched his thirst, and then roared us another defy. I went down to the breastwork on that side and emptied my Winchester at him as fast as 1 could pull the trigger. He snapped and spat at the bullets whistling bv, but was too proud to retreat under fire. When I got through shooting he lay down tvith his head on his paws and watched Dur campfire, but after awhile, satisfied that he had suffered no loss of reputa tion, he rose up and stalked away into the darkness, and we saw him no more.

X.lfe-Savlng Heroine In Her Teeu- Some Kemlnlsrences Told by Her Classmates Her Generosity to an Old Friend. rCOPTBIGHT, 1803.1 Adelina Patti first sang in public when only thirteen years of age. It was at an entertainment given on Juno 19, 1838, for the benefit of the Catholic church in Mount Vernon, N. Y. Mount Vernon then was a new and sparsely settled suburban viUage, fourteen miles from the metropolis. It is now a city with a population of over six teen thousand. The Patti family lived in a large brick mansion in the en virons. They were in good circum stances and maintained a very com fortable, unostentatious establishment, having horses and carriages and a retinue of servants. The location was near the New Haven and the Harlem railroads, and the house and grounds until recently were in full view of passing trains. The property is now occupied by the family of the editor of a prominent German newspaper pub lished in the metropolis. Patti yc clings with fondness to the rcminis SJrJ &&' iw2tfw) PATTI'S CHILDHOOD SOarE. cences of her girlhood years, and whenever in the city she invariably takes an ex cursion drive up the boulevard, to re view the old homestead and call upon some of her old-time friends. This cus tom was repeated on her last visit to New York, but the old house itself, and mora especially its surroundings, have undergone so many changes that she said that she would never care to go again. What were formerly open fields and pleasant groves are covered by city streets, lots and numerous buildings. The old landmarks are al most obliterated. She sighed as she said to one of her former playmates, who still lives in South Mount Vernon: "Oh! changes changes aU changed, and all the dear old scenes have passed away. I shall not wish to see it any more." Patti made two brief calls on old schoolmates, one of whom has for years been a cripple, suffering at times the acutest torments of a peculiar chronic spinal disease. Her moderato income is insufficient to secure more than ordinary medical service, but Patti has not only furnished her with the means to command the efforts of tho most eminent specialists of this country, but desires every possibility for further relief to be exhausted at her expense. Adelina, with her sister Carlotta, at tended the district school, in Mount Vernon, more than a mile distant from their home. In "Scharf's History of Westchester County" reference is made to the fact that in 185S complaints were made to school trustees by sev eral persons that the piano in tho schoolhouse was monopolized by.a "lit tle Italian girl" who at every available opportunity played and sang, to the exclusion of other pupils. This was Adelina, whose genuine inborn passion for music eagerly sought development and progress, paramount to all other considerations, and on all possiblo oc casions Mine. La Rue, one of Patti's former classmates, tells many inter esting facts and incidents that never have been published. She says: "Tho Patti girls were nice in every way. Some thought that Carlotta had the softest, sweetest vqice; but for rich, full, round tones, compass and power, Adelina was then, as she is now, su perb. Even in those days, all of us rJLTTI SAVES Jl comrade's ute. school children, and in fact everybody who heard her, recognized her remark able gift of voice. Hut none of us ever dreamed that she would attain her present eminence as the acknowleged queen of song.' Mrs. Greene, another of her school mates, said: "No one could help being impressed with the beauty and power of her voice. Often, while the class were singing, we would forget every thing else but that voice; and when the teacher would ask why we had stopped singing, we always answered 'we couldn't help stopping to listen to Adelina. " Mme. Angcrine, another classmate, said: "Yes, often half of tho girls would pause to listen to Patti. Now. of course, she knew of all this and you would think it would have made her vain. Hut it didn't seem to. She was a queer girl, peculiar but not freaky or cranky or silly. She had a strong will, but not a bad temper. While not at all 'proud.' she was par- j ticular as to the choice of companions. Although good natared and big hearted, she had very few intimates, and they were of the nicest sort. She was one of the most generous and sym I pathetic creatures that I ever knew. She is a very benevolent woman, and I could (if I did not know it would be very offensive, to her) tell you of many kind decds'of hers. If any one thing were calculated to arouse her wrath now, it would be the public mention of her charities." Tatti was rather short in stature and athletic She delighted ia out-door exercise and was expert in running, jumping, swimmingand even climbing; yet withal was ever decorous graceful Jgflp i 1 if xn lfeggfjESay. -j" .0SCS. j:&testes&at' IsI fry nd modest. On one occasion she was a life-savfng heroine. On a bright, crispy, cool Saturday morning in Octo ber, she accompanied a bevy of school girls on a-nutting excursion to a strip of forest known as "The Cedars," sit uated on the Sehieffelin estate, at the edge of Eastchester viUage. Through this woodland extends a rocky ravine, along the bottom of which courses a little brook. At one point there is as wild, weird and uncanny a retreat as can be found this Bide of the Rocky Mountains, the forest being so dense as to effectuaUy exclude the sunlight at aU times, and even at noon the sur roundings are almost gruesome in their gloominess. It is called "the Devil's Glen." The ravine at this point widens and in its central chasm is a huge oval basin containing water, said to be over forty feet in depth. It is bordered on three sides by precipi-, tous walls of rock, rising from ten to fifteen feet above the inky-hued surface, and is known as "the Devil's PooL" The party paused here awhile and viewed the quaint, queer, roman tic scenery. Some of them found amusement by pitching large stones into the murky water and listening to the resounding echoes of the splashes. While thus engaged one of the girls slipped and fell into the pool. What had been a scene of merry frolic in stantly changed into one of panic and horror. The air was filled with pierc ing shrieks and screams. One of the party fainted and the others frantical ly ran to and fro, wringing their hands and crying piteously. Patti alone retained presence of mind and urged some of tho girls to run quickly for help. Then leaping from rock to rock she came to tho lowest end of the gorge. Without an Instant of hesitation she sprang into the water and swam out to the half-submerged and struggling girl, who had fortu nately grasped and clung to the brit tle branch of an overhanging tree. Patti succeeded in supporting her half crazed playmate and swam with her to a floating log near bj', where the two rested. After quieting and reassuring her companion with words of encour- 1 PATTI'S FTUST APPEABAXCE IX rtTBLIC. agement Patti succeeded in paddling the log along to the lower end of the pool. But they were still helpless, as their clothing was weighted with its saturation and their bodies were chilled almost to numbness. It was more than half an hour that they clung to that cold, slimy log, before assist ance camo from the adjacent farm houses to rescue them from their per ilous position. During all this terrible experience Patti's courageous demean or was unfaltering, and by choerful words she inspired her companion with the hope and strength that saved her from perishing. The most interesting episode, as well as the most important era in Patti's girlhood, was her first appearance as a singer before a public audience. Tho occasion was an entertainment in aid of the building fund of tho Catholic church in Mount Vernon, N. Y., and the programme comprised local ama teur talent exclusively. The affair was held in the hall of the little village hotel, whose seating capacity was far less than two hundred persons. Patti's name was far along on the list of vocalists, and when the time for her appearanco arrived the hour was late; for, as usual in such country amateur affairs, delays had greatly prolonged tho exercises. The audience had become wearied, but the announce ment of the name of Tatti aroused them. The public school children had so frequently and enthusiastically spoken to their parents about the beautiful singing of "the little Italian girl" that gossip was rife and curiosity eager to sec and to hear the local juvenile prodigy. There was a rust ling of dresses and stretching of necks in their efforts to obtain a good view. Patti noticed the bustle and had an, inkling of tho cause. It was no pioro than natural that such conspicuousness should render her extremely sensitive, and provoke that sensation known as "stage fright." But the hearty applause that filled the hall as she came upon the platform dispelled all momentary nervousness, and the little lady held her self-command at its normal equipose. The audience saw before them a girl of thir teen, of rather short, stout and yet graceful figure, handsomely dressed in dark material with trimmings in colors most becoming to her. Sho was not hand-ome, but had a very pleasant, inteUigcnt, interesting face, luxuriant hair and eyes of diamond brilliancy. The accompanist, Prof. Agassiz, her musical instructor, was far more nerv ous than she, because he doted much on ner proficiency, and was anxious that her first essay in public should be successf uL In his prelude lie made a discora in the third or fourth bars, i Quick as a flash Patti 'half-turned and I shot a vexful glance toward him and j stamped her little foot, as if with an- , noyance at his error.

A long and stormy winter is pre dicted by the Klamath Indians of Ore gon. They bnse their prophecy on the movements of the wild fowl and on other phenomena. People in that re gion think they may be right, too, for already the miners who are coming down from their mountain claims re port that they have to wade through two and a half feet of snow. Three men who started from mines in the Blue mountains for Albany, Ore. have been missing for some time, and it is thought they perished in a big snowstorm which &wept the mountain a week or so since. And yet, such is the inSnite variety of the northwest' climatic possibilities, a week ago vines loaded with ripe red raspberries, perfectly developed, were to Ve sscn in a common jrarden patch at Eremont, Wash., mrwy miles north of the snow-bound district. r .4 THE GOSSIP OE G0TAA3L Are the Gould Yovnz Ladle Going Abroad Soon? Cruelty to Helpless Trees How Repeal Has Made the Silver Men Richer The Departure of Millionaire Bishop Coxe's Letter. ICOPTBIGHT, 1893.1 Now it is reported that the Gould children that is, the girls, Anna and Helen, with one of their brothers propose mak ing a tour to Europe to gether. The Goulds like Europe, but they do not prefer it to their own coun try. The public i t y attendant upon the rumors of marriage may AXXAGOUI.D. have something to do with the contemplated trip. When the party will start is not definitely ascertained. It appears that Miss Anna would like to go south for a time. Everything connected with the late Jay Gould's childrjen seems to reveal their democratic simplicity. For instance, they spend comparative ly little upon themselves, although they give large sums to public and private charities. Moreover, their friends are largely among the poor. The Gould girls are acquainted with numerous young women who might be termed poverty stricken. But it seems to be thought that the Goulds have no aristocratic friends. There never was a greater misapprehension. These wealthy young people receive visits and invitations from the most exclusive families in New York, and from persons who, if not as wealthy as the Goulds, are at least rich enough and socially strong enough to bo above the imputation of an inter ested motive. Should the Goulds make the foreign tour, their sojourn will certainly not add to the revenues of an3r fortune hunter. It seems to have escaped general notice that all the children of the late wizard are patriotic Americans. The Departure ot a Millionaire. The fact that the present Anthony Joseph Drexel took no trouble to deny a report that he ej intended buj'ing yjA a home in New York is taken to mean that h e will do so, but tho impression is wrong. Mr. Dr ex el's per manent home is Philadelphia, to which city he is, like his father, warmly at tached. He is at present among the most ad mired of the many out of a. J. drexel. towners who now and then appear on horseback in Central park. He is deemed one of the most expert hc-se-men in the east, although his stable represents no great outlay, consider ing his wealth. It is noteworthy in this connection that young millionaires like Mr. Drexel do not settle down in New York as numerously as they once did. Other cities now vie with the na tional metropolis as good places to spend a handsome income in. More over, a good social position in New York does not mean as much as a good social position in Boston, Philadelphia or Baltimore. The latter cities are con ceded to be more censorious in matters relating to a position in society than is New York. Money continues to be the principal thing with the Gothamites. No wonder, therefore, that A. J. Drexel does not mean to desei't proud old Phil adelphia for New York. The Modern Cave of Aladdin. The money now being spent in New York in the purchase of jewelry for Christmas gifts exceeds in amount any expenditure of the kind everwitnessed in former years. Eight hundred dol lars is a very ordinary price to pay for a bangle or bracelet. The favorite now has diamonds alternating with sap phires, rubies or other precious stones, set in a combination of from three to five gems. The jewelers had a fashion of dis playing pur chased articles with such le gends as "Sold to Mrs. for S10.C00," but it is now conceded to be vulgar to permit the ue of one's name in this way. Even articles of or dinary use have become extraordinary in price. Silver pitchers, heavy and exquisitely worked, itis true, and hold ing, say two quarts, sell for $S00. Punch bowls of the same pattern are S-1,000. A popular article at present in New York is a silver traveling clock which costs 57o0. Trays fetch S1.S00. Even such a trifle as a tumbler fetches, if made of silver. 25. If not well made it goes for SI Silver vegetable dishes bring readily from 75 to S300 each. One of the lest lenown of the j New York jeweler, is authority for the btalement that silver is greatly in de mand for all tableware. Gold, it ap pears, is deemed unrefined when lavish ly displayed- The consequence is a brisk demand for pig silver. Those enemies of the "gold busrs" who de clared that repeal would throw silver i miners out of work seem not to have "j calculated upon the present state of j iiiiiiirs.

As most Americans are aware the vice president ot the United States has ; no robe of office.

Evarts has done much to remedy this in the A. E. STEYEXSOX. public academies, but private schools are no.t susceptible to this influ ence. Samuel J. Tilden's comment when the honor girl of a gradua tion class in an aristocraticprivate sem inary told him that the chief justice of the United States was elected by the people for a term of fourteen years has passed into history. Roscoe Conkling was an enemy during most of his pub lic career to the farcial system of "education" carried out in New York boarding schools, where French only is spoken and Lindley Murray is never even heard of. Cruelty to Tree. For months past there has been com plaint that New York's soil seems'pe- culiarly deadly to such orna mental trees as are planted in the few gardens on Manhattan island. An oc casional million aire in Gotham indulges in the luxury of a gar den, and trees for it are pro cured either from the nurs eries or the hot houses. But they all wither and die in a season or two in spite of the utmost gardening skill. The result has been tho growing of trees in huge tubs, wherein prepared soil is heaped. Tho trees can then be put outdoors or kept in the house, according io circum stances. New York is filled with such arboreal pets, and their existence has given rise to an agitation. It is con ceded by tho best informed arboricul turists that vegetable life is as sensi tive to cruel treatment as is animal life. It ,is not humane, according to late theorists, to cramp the roots of developed trees in tubs, or to imprison them after the present fashion among wealthy New Yorkers. The Vandcr "bilts, at any rate, agree with this view, and they do not now put forest trees in a hothouse. However, there is no law in New York state concerning cruelty to trees, and the heartless millionaires cannot be summarily dealt with. Bishop Coxe's Second Letter. The second letter of Bishop Coxe to Satolli, papal delegate, has been eagerly awaited ever since tho appear a n c e of the first. It seems to be over looked that the aged prelate takes the posi tion of one pro fessing the same religion as Sat olli, and hence his letter cannot be inconsistent from that point of view. Bishop Coxc, Bjsnop coxe. speakingof him- eelf recently, declared that he was very old and not long for this world. Yet he is a very hardy man, with a clar, ringing voice, and no member of any hierarchy is able to draw a larger audience in New York than he. The prelate is the best living authority on the growth of the Episcopalian church in tho United States, his favorite com parison for the flock being in that Biblical figure: "A citjrnot forsaken." Ono of the most curious things about this bishop of western New York is that although his warm friends are numerous and powerful, his enemies may bo classed in the same cate gory. This is perhaps due to the par tisan nature of the venerable old gen tleman, who never temporizes about anything, but always takes one side or the other of any controversy. David WEcnstEB. "One who goeb on a pedeHtrian tour nowadays," said a man who has just returned from a brief tour afoot, "may be surprised at the number of men he will meet on bicycles. The bi cyclist of to-day undertakes long jour neys with great confidence, and he seems to find keen enjoyment on the swift-moving, silent wheel. And it may also surprise the pedestrian the number of people he will meet driving about the country. He may meet to day, for Instance, two young men who are spending their vacation in th! manner; he may meetto-inorrow a pro fessional man seeking rest and recrea tion in the same way; the next day he may meet somebody else; and they are j driving through the country oif the j beaten track and finding in nature a I rugged,smiling, strength-giving friend. !
