SLAVES SATISFIED WITH LOT.
Under Mohammedan Masters CondW tlona Are Not Severe. “In Zanzibar and Pemba slaves ara very slow to take advantage of the regulations that give them the right to claim their freedom,” says a trav eler. “They realize that so long as they are well used their position is superior to that of the man whose freedom Is his sole aj»set. I have found the same attitude in North Africa. From Morocco to Tripoli one sees most of the slaves well content and flourishing. The famine, the locusts, the drought and the tax col lector have no terror for them; work keeps them healthy, they have enough to eat and drink and the future has no meaning at all. There Is promotion; there are confidential missions to governors and friends that elevate a slave. If only In the eyes of his fel lows, and there Is always a chance of manumission when the owner dies and wishes to have some good deeds recorded in the books of Islam’s re cording angels. The sorry truth of the natter Is that slaves unitor Mo hammedan rule are much better off than they ever were under the Mile of white man—in America and clso where.** THANKS OF THE BAILIE. Possibly More Truth In Speech Than He Intended. There was an excellent man w ho, af ler senrlng his follow citizens In Olas row as a councillor, at length was promoted to the dignity of bailie, or alderman, as the rank Is called ih Ihcgland. Though he was none the worse on that account, it Is the simple fact that hit education had been neg lected. This he proceeded to prore— himself happily unconscious—in his speech of thanks: "I canna but say, my friends, that I am proud of the honor of being made a bailie of this great city; and I am oren. I think, entitled to the honor, for I hate gone through a' the carious stages o' degradation that a bailie has to do lo reach It!" This recalls the famous story of tho councillor who objected to a proposal lo place a candelabra In the council chamber on tho ground that they would need to pay some one to play It! Her Transformation. ■he drank quantities of water, ate a lot of starchy foods. Abstained from exorcising every day: She assimilated lactic and a case of malt* ed foods. Hut It termed her fate to have to fade away. She ao mourned attenuation, with a vis age like an owl s. That a smile upon her face was novel seen; While below her mouth were wrinkle*, and above her eyes were scowls. And her nose was like a hatchet In b#- tween. But one day she fell to laughing In a strange, hysteric way. Just in thinking how ridiculous it proved; And It mellow* >1 to a cackle that was sane enough, they any. TUI at last she giggled every time she moved. Why she chuckled out her wrinkle**, and she snickered off h< r frowns. And then took to all the things she shouldn't do; Now she s grown ts fat as butter, and has outgrown all her gowns. But she laughs away at that disaster, too. — Elliot Walker lu tho Woman's Homs Cuin|>aiUon. No Use for Coroner. The Grand Army of San Diego conn ty.
