It is reported that a captain In the British army named Welby has re cently returned from an expedition in the unknown portions of Abyssinia and the countries lying north of Uganda between Lake Rudolf and the Nile valley. He visited and lived among some twenty different tribes, several of which are quite new to ex plorers, says the San Francisco Chron icle. Perhaps the most curious of these were two races of gianjte said to be seven feet in height, living near Lake Rudolf. Some doubt has been cast on the veracity of Capt. Welby in regard to his assertion as to the height of those people, but it should be re membered that the dwarfs discovered by Stanley were regarded by many persons as a njyth until the account was verified by other explorers. Life Growing Longer. Prof. Mansfield Merriman, studying the United States census reports since 1850, has discovered a marked and steady increase in the length of human life in our country during the last half century. His statistics, which were presented at the recent meeting of the American Association for the Advance ment of Science, show that in 1850 the median age of the entire population was 18.3 years, while in 1890 it had risen to 21.4 years. In 1900 he antic ipates, it will be 22.4 years. By ‘‘median age” is meant that which di vides the population equally, one-half being above and the other half below the median. Breeches on the Wrong Man. Bret Harte is so frequently comp’d mented as the author of “Little Breeches,” that he is almost as sorry it was ever written as is Col. John Hay, who would prefer his fame to rest on more ambitious work. A gushing lady, who prided herself on her literary tastes, said to him once: “My dear Mr. Harte, I am so delighted to meet you. I have lead everything you ever wrote, but of all your dialect verse there is none that compares to your “Little Breeches.” “I quite agree with you, madam,” said Mr. Harte, “out you have put the breeches oa the wrong man.” A Hird’s Sea Resort. From the Youth's Companion: Nat uralists consider it a wonderful fact that the Bermuda islands have only seven native species of land birds, while not less than 128 other species pay visits to the islands. Many of these visitors are birds which pass the summer in the United States, and utilize the Bermuda islands as a con venient winter resort, thus imitating some of their human compatriots. Even some American bats follow the example of the birds by wintering in the Bermudas. How to Take Medicine. The taste of disagreeable medicine may usually be removed by a draught of pure cold water. In some cases this is not effectual, and then a piece of dried orange peel will answer the pur pose. It is a good plan to save a lit tle very thinly pared orange peel, and to dry it in the oven or before the fire till it is crisp and hard for taking after medicine. This costs nothing and is far better than sweetmeats. —Pitts- burg Dispatch. Claimed “Spur Money.” The choir boys of St. George’s chapel, Windsor castle, in accordance with ancient custom, have the right to claim five shillings as “spur money” from any military man wearing his spurs in church during service. On a recent Sunday an officer had innocently infringed this regulation, and at the close of the service the boys, to his surprise, demanded the fine. First Industrial Exposition. Perhaps the first industrial exhibl-* lion on record was held in 1569, in the Rathhaus of Nuremberg. A catalogue published at the time thus states the purposes of the exhibition: ‘‘lt shall bring before the public all innovations in the trade of the whole world in modern times, together with domestic art production.” The Onion as a Prophet. We are going to have a very mild winter according to a Paris meteorolo gist. He bases his prediction on onions, which it appears are chilly vegetables, and form several skina when a cold winter is coming. This year the onions have only one skin, as they know that the weather is to be warm and open. The Busy Jtieep. Sheep are used as beasts of burden in India and Persia.
