I The Great Desert.
Ri A Graphic Picture of Fearful
It; Scenes in Sahara.
t A traveller who has journeyed a-
I cross the great Sahara desert in Afri
! ca, thus describes in the New Orleans
I Times the terrible scenes that he wit
| nessed : Riding five hundred metres
II ill advance of our little troop, the
S horseman who acts as guide directs
jB our way over the dead level of the
I dismal solitude. For the last ten
f minuses he kept his horso at a walk,
i sitting motionless in his saddlo, and
r singing in his own tongue a melan
|| choly, long-drawn chant; with siugu
f larities of Oriental rhyme. We imi
■ tate his 'pace. Then all of a sudden
/ he starts off at a trot, standing in his
■ stirrups erect, with his great bum
|; our floating behind him. And we all
f trot after him, until he draws rein a
| gain to re-commence a gentle pace.
I ask niy comrade .♦
|i. "How can he guide us through
these naked wastes without a single
i| mark to show the way ?"
* But he answered :
|| "There are only the bones of cam-
| And in fact, every quarter of an
| hour, we came across some enormous
I bone gnawed by beasts, cooked by
I the sun—all white, in strong relief a
■ gainst the sand. Sometimes it was
| part of a leg, sometimes part of a jaw,
I sometimes a part of the vertebral col
li umn. Tho caravans leave behind
r. them every animal they cannot keep
up; and the jackale do not carry all
| the remains away,
k And for several days we continued
, this monotonous voyage,always in the
saddle, always behind the same Arab,
almost without speaking.
Now,one afternoon, as we were ap
. preaching Bou-Saada, I saw, far off,
before us, a great dark mass, made
larger by the mirage,—the form of
which* astonished me. At our approach
5 two vultures flew away. It was a ear
■ cass, still slimp in spite of the heat, —
S glossy as though varnished, with put
rid blood. The chest alone remained;
the limbs had doubtless been torn off
and carried away by the voracious de
vourers of the dead.
"Ah! There are travelers ahead of
us !'* said the lieutenant.
Some hours later we entered a ra
vine, a sort of a defile, a frightful fur
nace, bordered by huge rocks toothed
like a saw—sharp, pointed, ragged,
rabid, in revolt, as it were against the
implacably ferocious sky. Another
corpse was lying there. And a jackal
that had been devouring it flew away.
Then, we passed out of the ra
vine, a gray heap of something before
ua moved; and siowly, at the end of a
[ disproportionately long neck, I saw
he head of an agonizing camel rise
up. He was lying there —and had
been lying for three or four days, per
haps—on his side, dying of fatigue
and thirst. His long members, that
seemed inert, broken, all mixed up to
gether, were stretched upon the fiery
soft. And, hearing us coming, he had
lifted up his head, like a light-house
His forehead, already gnawed by the
sun,was but one wound—one running
sore ; and his resigned gaze followed
us. He did not utter a moan, did not
make the least effort to rise. One
would have thought, that he had seen
•o many of his brothers die in their
long voyages through desolation he
knew to well the merciless of man.
Now it was his turn—that was all!
And we passed on.
qßut when I looked back a long,long
time afterward, I saw still rising up
. 4 from the sand the lofty neck of the
abandoned beast,watching to the end
the last living creatures he could ever
"""St £"* & m' "
behold, passing beyond the horizon.
An hour later it was a dog, crouch
ing close to a rock, with jaws wide o
pen and fangs glittering, incapable of
moving a paw, with eyes fixed upon
two vultures who sat not far off,plum
ing themselves while waiting for his
death. He was so possessed with ter
ror of those terribly patient birds,
waiting for his flesh, that ho nevar
turned his head, and did not even feel
the stones that a saphi flung at him.
And, suddenly at the outlet of a
nother defile, I saw the oasis before
It was an apparition never to be
forgotten. One has traversed endless
plains, climbed mountains all craggy,
bald, calcined, without ever seeing a
tree, a plant; a single green leaf, and
lo !•—right before you, at your very
If feet, is an opaque mass of sombre
verdure—as it were/ a lake of foliage
extending upon the sand. Then,
further on, the desert recommences,
lengthening infinitely to the indefinable
horizon where it mixes with the sky.
Says the Scientific American : "In
consequence of the increasing number
of grave-yard desecrations, the genius
of the inventor has been incited to de-
Yiee means for their defeat. Among
the most recent patterns is one for the '
coffin torpedo,which consists of a can
ister containing powder, halls and a
firing trigger so arranged that on
placing the torpedo within the coffin,
and finally closing the lid, should any
attempt be made to open the coffin the
torpedo will be instantly exploded, a
noise like thunder ensue, and deadly
balls will fly in all directions.

FOR THE CURE OF

all remedies ever oSared to the public for
the SAFE, CEBTAIIT, SPEEDY and PEB
MAKENT cure of Ague and Fever, or Chills
and Fever, whether Of short or long stand
ing. He refers to the entire Western and
Southern country to bear him testimony to
the truth of the assertion that in no oass
whatever will it fail to cure if the direc
tions are strictly fallowed and oarried out.
In a great many cases a single dose has
been sufficient for a cure, and whole fami
lies have been cured by a single bottle, with
a perfect restoration of the general health.
It is, however, prudent, and in every ease
more certain to cure, If its use is continued
in smaller doses for a week or two after the
disease has been checked, more especially
in difficult and long-standing cases. Usu
ally this medicine will not require any aid
to keep the bowels in good order. Should
the patient, however, require a cathartic
medicine, after having taken three or four
doses of the Tonio, a single dose of BULL'S
