FIENDISH AMAZONS, Travelers Witness Horrible Executions. VICTIMS WERE SHOCKINGLY MUTILATED. Little Hope of Ever Stopping What They Call 'Customs." A letter from Paris, giving details of the adventures of Dr. Bayol, tho gov ernor of Kotonou, who was imprisoned by the larig of Dahomey, appears in The Vossischo Zeitung. Dr. Bayol himself was not ill treated, but was forced to witness tho most horrible executions, and was closely watched night and day by three of the most important chiefs. He was forced to be present at the exe cution of his secretary and Ids interpret er, and was a spectator of the sacrifice at one time of eighty-four human beings, and at another of forty-two. The vic tims were bound, mutilated in a horri ble manner, and then, still alive, hung up by the heels. Then their bodies were opened with large round knives and the intestines taken out, after which tho corpses were thrown into a "place of skulls." where in forty-eight hours they were reduced b' birds of prey to skele tons. Dr. Bayol was every time compelled to view each corpse, while the execu tioners carefully turned the heads of their victims toward him. Upon one occasion he desired to buy off some ne groes, whom he recognized as proteges from Porto Novo, but the king angrily refused to allow it. Every day his dusky majesty danced before the doctor, exe cuting steps and jumps which would have been highly entertaining under other circumstances. At these times the king wore sandals and a sort of Grecian cap on his head, and six Amazons danced with him. The Amazons Dr. Bayol describes as very fiends. One day the doctor wit nessed a spectacle which he will never forget. At a sign from the king 500 Amazons rushed upon a living ox and tore it into pieces in a few seconds; then each, with a piece of raw flesh in her mouth, marched off singing, while five of their number held the skin and head of their victim aloft in triumph. In festal garments they witnessed from the roofs of tho neighboring huts the human sacrifices of the next day and laughed heartily. They always appear perfectly resigned and go quietly to death when their turn comes. The king is very suspicious, and would not sign the letter written to the president of the French republic. Dr. Bayol's return to tho coast was extremely dangerous, for he had no passport and was therefore obliged, in spite of illness, to march more than fiftj- miles in ono day through country with which he was quite unac quainted. On arriving at Kotonou he heard of the dedth of the king, whom, had he been still at Dahomey, he would have probably been accused of poison ing. J Senior Keeps on Writing. My mother often went to Bowood, and used to tell a good story against our old friend, Mr. Nassau Senior. Once when she was there with the Seniors and a large party Tommy Moore, who lived near and was a frequent visitor, was pre vailed upon to bing. All prepared to listen to the harming performance save Mr. Senior, who sat down at a small writing table and began to write with a quill upon Lord Lansdowne's very ribbed paper. He was compiling a paper on statistics, or something of that sort. Moore began, but his singing was ren dered impossible by the persistent scratch, scratch, and he turned round to see who caused the odious noise. Mr. Senior looked up and said innocently, "Oh, you don't disturb me, I assure you; pray goon, I rather like it." This caused an outburst of laughter absolutely puz zling to the unconscious statistician. Mrs. Ross in Murray's Magazine. ISabbuge. Mr. Babbage took me one day to see his calculating machine, and was might ily amused at my emphatic approval. I never could do my sums, ftnd asked him to give it to me. He also showed me a wonderful automaton figure, made, if I recollect right, of silver. He called it his wife, and I was rather afraid of the silent lady as she moved her arms and head in a graceful but rather weird fashion. Mr. Babbage generally looked so sad that I remember when my grand mother was telling me the story of Pyg malion I exclaimed, "Why, it is just like Mr. Babbage and his wife." My parents and he quite agreed on one sub ject dislike of music which my father always described as "a noise which pre vents conversation." Mrs. Ross in Murray's Magazine. The I.aiul of Bucks. There are more ducks in tho Chinese empire than in all the world outside of it. They are kept by the Celestials on every farm, on the private roads, on the public roads, on the streets of cities and on all the lakes, ponds, rivers, streams and brooks in the country. Every Chi nese boat also contains a batch of them. Thero are innumerable hatching estab lishments all through the empire, many of which are said to turn out about fifty thousand young ducks every year. Salted and smoked duck and ducks' eggs constitute two of the most common and important articles of diet in China. Exchange. Critical Periods In Life. There are two periods of life in which the powers of resistance to adverse influ ences are excessively weak. In infancy, from birth to 5 years of age, but espe cially in the first year of existence, the power of life is very feeble, and this is the reason that so many infants die sud denly in convulsions. Again, after the ago of 65 is passed the vital tenacity is lowered, the substance of the heart and of the muscles in general becomes fatty, and there is imminent liability to sud den failure of the heart's action. Chatter. Our Little Knowledge of Greenland There are two questions in chief that lend romance to Greenland, one of which is akin to the delightful, unsolved problem of an open polar sea. the other having to I do with a chapter in the Icelandic settlo j ment of America before Columbus, whoso ! opening passages wo liud in the Norse chronicles, but whose sequel no man can ' read. Nordenskjold has made two at : tempts to break through what he con siders a belt of thick ice surrounding a central part of Greenland not glaciated in the samo way. if at all. Ho argues that Greenland is comparatively flat, and does not breed glaciers from a central ! lofty ridge like the Alps; those glaciers I which produce- icebergs for distribution over the North Atlantic aro in his view ' phenomena local to the sea coasts; if we , could force the barrier of the inland ice, ! whoso outer edges aro glacjtr like in I movement and effects, we should reach ' the real Greenland, by no means a tropical land, of course, but ono capable of sup porting the small but rich and quick 1 maturing flora of the Arctic "circle, and, as a necessary consequeuce, tho living fauna of such a region. 1 Tho mora romantic question is tho old 1 one, What became of tho Icelandic settle ments on the east coast? Access to that coast by sea is almost always hindered by floes and masses of icAergs; from the land side the iuland ice blocks tho way. Esquimaux havo not been slow to afiirm that descendants of the old Norse settlers linger on that inaccessible spot, and love to add that ghosts of early Scandinavians , haunt the glittering fields of hummock, crevasse and underground river which j present such an impenetrable front to hunters and explorers. Tho general 1 opinion is that the Norseman of the east I as well as the west coast dwindled and , merged with the Esquimaux from choico I or from necessity. Attempts have been . made to assign this or that trait of the Esquimaux of Greenland to an infusion of Norse blood. It is certain that during the last few centuries Danes have inter married readily with the Esquimaux, and that the children are remarkably more handsome than their parents. New York Times. A Ceremonious InTltatlon. The following invitation to attend the funeral of tho Baron Salomon de Roths child was received by a United States official iu Paris, who says truly that it cannot fail to bo curious to American readers: "Sin Tho Baron and the Baroness An selmo de Rothschild, tho Baron and the Boroness James de Rothschild, tho Baron and tho Baroness Nathaniel do Roths child, and their children, the Baron and the Baroness Adolpho de Rothschild, the Baron and the Baroness Willy do Roths child, aud their children, the Barons Al phonse, Gustave, Salomon, and Edmond de Rothschild, the Misses Louise and Alice do Rochschild, and tho Barons Na thaniel, Ferdinand and Salomon de Roths child, tho Biron Amschel do Rothschild, Mme.

This, however, is not correct. Ono instance is mentioned by a gentleman, well known lor lus veracity, with a aegreo 01 sang froid. At the timo tho troops were en camped at Cambridge, information was received at headquarters that the iuigusn wero about leaving Boston to give them battle. All was bustlo and confusion. Tho soldiers wero strolling over tho town, and tho officers wero but ill prepared for the approaching rencontcr. Some of the generals wero calling for their horses, and others for their arms; and among tho rest was Gen. Greene, at tho bottom of the stairs, bawling to the barber for his wig. "Bring my wig, you rascal; bring my wlgl" Gen. Leo diverted himself and the rest of tho company at tho expense of Greene. "Your wig is behind the looking glass, sir." At which Greene, raising his eyes, perceived, by tho mirror, that tho wig was where it should be 011 his head. Washington, in a fit of laughter, threw himself on tho sofa, and tho whole group presented rather a ludicrous spectacle, New York Mirror, Jan. 11. 1834. Women Slake Good Swimmers. The records of the humane societies on both sides of tho Atlantic show that of late years a fair proportion of their medals tail to tho lot 01 girls, mere were sev eral notable instances of rescue from drowning last summer by girls under twenty. Many women are accomplished swimmers. This is but natural. As their bones are generally lighter than those of men, and their flesh more buoy ant, they havo less difficulty to overcome in acquiring tho art. Somo of them could float at their first attempt, if they could acquire the requisite faith in tho power of tho water to hold them up. Swimming 13 very much an art of faith, for it is gener ally tho case that when a person believes sufficiently in tho buoyancy of tho water to trust to it his precious body, lol he is a swimmer. There were young girls at Newport, last summer, who could float pn tho surface of the ocean with no more difficulty than they experienced in lying upon a sofa. They could havo floated for hours, if necessary. Some of the roost famous swimming feats havo been accom plished by very young women. The Argonaut. Customs of Incllsh Sportsmen. When a London man is asked down to join a shooting party, ho would not take Lis "loader" with him, as his host would expect to find him a "loader," for no man loads his own gun in England; it is tho (luty of a servant. But if ho were resid ing In tho country ho would expect to tako his "loader" with him, and ho could "shoot with two guns;" that is, ho would bring two guns, as tho delay of waiting for ono to bo loaded might loso him a fino shot. It is considered a great offense in England if a man is "noisy" when out shooting, loudly talkative or boisterously merry or given to exclamations when a bird rises or when a bird is missed.

Figures Show the Supply Falling- ofT. is ALASKA THE FUTURE EL DORADO. t Plenty of Gold in the Alleghany Eange, but Hard to get at. 1 "Probably nine-tenths of all the gold ob tained by man has leen taken from placer deposits, and our American experience lias been no exception to the. general rule," re marked an experienced mining operator in speaking of the past and future of this valu able product tho other evening. "Previous to 1S47 our total gold production amounted to -512,000,000, but between 1847 and 18S7 about 81,7.10,000,000 were contributed to our stock of gold. "Of this, nearly three fourths came from placers deposits. In 1S."0 50 we obtained more than $."0,000,000 per an num in gold from the placers of California, and almost nothing from gold bearing veins. Now, with an annual production of J.TO,000, 000 about one-half only is from placers. Our own territory has been so thoroughly ex plored that 110 considerable superficial de posits of gold are likely to be discovered, and nearly the same thing can be said of the en tire world. "In the northern extension of our western mountain ranges in British Columbia and Alaska there are probably important depos its of gold. It is likely, however, to come from this region in a moderate but perennial stream, aud not in a flood. Great difficulty will attend the working of those mines 011 account of the cold, long winters and the difficulty in transporting supplies. Unless the mines should prove richer than expected, there may be a dearth of gold iu the near future. In the Alleghany belt of mountains, in this country, there are large deposits of gold, but they are difficult to wort. Still, industry and perseverence may make theni pay a profit. Mexico may be expected to turn out $1,000,000 a year, but no more. The west coast of South America yields little but silver. "Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil have, on the contrary, always been producers of gold. It is estimated that from Brazil alone more than 81,000,000,000 iu gold were obtained during the first 300 years after the advent of the Portuguese. Colombia and Venezuela are now yielding about $4,000,000 each annu ally, and little more than that can be ex pected in the future. "Australia produces about $30,000,000 a year, and we cannot hope for more than $o00,000 aunually from Asia. That will cover it all. I don't fear that you and I will ever suffer from a famine of gold, but unless the North American deposits are richer than is exected someone will suffer." New York Mail and Express. I Hack Work and Journalism. Is the hack work of literature worse for a man's body or soul than the hack work of other professions.' Whatis here meant by hack workf In the literary profession, es pecially among those who write about it, it is common to hear work "done for the book sellers" contemptuously treated as hack work. The contempt is often just, but not neces sarily. Johnson wrote his "Lives of the Poets" for the booksellers, Southey wrote his "Life of Nelson" for them, yet these are works no sane man treats contemptuously. Every man who depends solely on his pen for a livelihood must, even if he can steer clear of the newspapers, do much work which he, if he be wise, and the world certainly, will willingly let die. If he be an honest man, a man of proper self-respect, he will do it as well as circumstances will let him; but needs must that circumstances will sometimes prove too strong for him. Yet it has been that work so dono has, by happy chance be come a part of the world's patrimony. In short, as treason, says the epigram, may be come patriotism, so hack work may become literature. Then, again, in every profession practiced by man there must necessarily be some pre liminary drudgery, some period of appren ticeship to be endured before he can lie proclaimed free of the guild and qualified to set up for himself. For some men, of course, this period never passes; for some it passes to no puqiose, and it is, perhaps, hard to say that this will always be tho fault of the man. In journalism, alone of the professions, the time of emancipation can never come. It is j the peculiar lot of the journalist that he can ' never set up for himself. He is merged in j his paper; like the actor of the Athenian : stage, his face is hid in a mask, and ho speaks in tones not his own. He must speak iu tho tones of his party or that iu the j church, in the state, in trade, or in some j other one of the many channels into which I the great current of human affairs is par I celed. Macmillan's Magazine. The Good Wives of llulgaria. Bulgarian peasant women are extremely ro bust and hardy, though the- are as a rule short of stature. They are thickly set, their ehests well developed and their limbs mus cular from constant exercise and toil in tho open air. Their Tartar origin shows itself in their high projecting cheek bones, short snub noses and little, twinkling ej'es. Social life among this class of the popula tion differs from that of the Greeks chiefly in the position of the women. A Bulgarian bulka, or good wife, takes an almost equal sharo with her husband in the bread winning, and, consequently, her word has consider able weight in the family council. Like all women in the east, she is sober and thrifty, I Keeps at least the msule ot Iter house clean and tidy, cooks palatable food, spins, weaves, knits and sews all tho clothes for the family. Her wardrobe consists of two suits, one the gala costume, in which she was married and which will last her a lifetime for Sundays and prasnik, or feast days, and one of the same pattern, but more homely material, for working days. Tho former consists chiefly of a long linen garment worked round the borders and seams, a cloth coat richly em broidered, a largo apron nearly covered with the same ornamentation, but no petticoats; and 011 the head a bordered white kerchief artistically arranged and fastened With silver pins aud strings of coins. Woman's World. The Georgia Type of Fish Story. I Frank O'Bryan, solicitor of the Atlanta district, left his home at Sans Souci at j 11 p. ni. in his canoe, which was rowed 1 by a negro who had been a body servant 1 to weorge Washington. As the day was hot Solicitor O'Bryan reclined upon the stern of the boat with a silk handkerchief in his, hand, an end of which was trailing in the water. Feel ing ft jerk, O'Brien flung the handker chief inward, to find that he had landed with it a three pound trout, which had attempted to swallow the red end of the handkerchief. The solicitor at once went ashore aud had a fish fry all to himself, when he resumed his journey. Cor. At lanta Constitution, AN EVENING MADRIGAL.

There has grown up among the farmers of 1 a county in Michigan a telegraph system, ! which miir lit trenemllv ha HxipndeH thmno-h. out the rural districts everywhere. The sys tem began by two farmers connecting their houser by a wire for their own convenience, and operating their line with tho ordinary Morse instruments. Gradually other farmers extended the line to their houses, and after a timo the wire was run into a neighboring villa ga. Seven years ago the combined farmers and a few village merchants organized them selves into a company, and it has since been extended, until now it has sixty-five miles of wire and ninety offices, two-thirds of the latter being in farmhouses, and nearly all the rest being in stores, where these farmers do all their trading. One or two newspaper offices, as many more railroad friegbt offices, the county telephone exchange and the larger postofficesare all connected. Every farmer is his own operator, battery man and line repairer. Of course, any quantity of private communication is kept up between the stockholders of this independent system. There aro two or three indepenpent systems ul " uncs in operation in the county, ar ranged so that they can be connected with each other at intersecting points, and the whole scheme is being worked very cheaply and successfully. Baltimore Sun. A Sanitary Tlew of Cremation. While 1 am not a member of the crematory association, still I favor cremation as a very proper manner of disposing of the dead. As it is something of an innovation in this country, there aro in consequence only a few as yet who prefer It to tho old and time hon ored way, but 1 look for many converts to the new method. After all cremation is not such a terrible thing as some have pictured it. It simply accomplishes in a few hours natural order would require years. The body is bound to become ashes, and the intense heat of the crematory re duces it in a few hours; whereas in the old way it takes a longtime before the reduction is complete. There are many good argu ments used in support of cremation which in the course of time will make it more popular among the general public. Viewed from a sanitary standpoint there is no doubt that it is far superior to interment in the usual way.-Dr. J. R. Whitwood in Globe-Democrat. Advice to the Overworked. Nervous people worry most, but they also work most Well, the question one is in clined to ask himself when he feels something wrong with his health is: "Am I over working myself T' I would answer thus: "If you really enjoy forking, it cannot injure you very much; but, on the other hand, if it is force work, and you find little pleasure in it, then it -will tell on your constitution." But many people cannot afford .rest. Well but wonders can l done by taking exercise' by breathing only fresh air night and day indoors and out; and by careful regulation of the diet In conclusion, let me entreat of you, as you value your happiness, not to neglect first departures from health.

Chicago Herald. "Hiding the Yellow Pony." In the Founders' day procession In New Haven one of the "Lancasterian school boys" led a yellow pony. Few knew the signifi cance of the pony until it was explained that Mr. Lovell, the old schoolmaster, used to dis cipline his pupils by laying them out, face downward, on tho yellow school desks and applying a rawhide where it would do the most good. This he called "nding the yellow pony." It is said that the man who led tin pony in the procession deserved tho honor, for he once, when a boy, rode the yellow pony twenty-four times in one day. New York Sun. Friction Increased Electrically. Methods and apparatus have been devised to increase tho tractive power of locomotives and other self propelled rail vehicles by in creasing, electrically, tho frictional adhesion between the driving wheels and tho rails. It Is claimed that tho tractive power can thus be nearly doubled without increasing the weight of the locomotive, and that sleet and snow difficulties will be overcome. It is also claimed that the friction thus obtained is cheaper than sanding, without its consequent wear. Chicago News. Tho World's Quinine.
