Hundred Upen Hundred or Them Dropped Down ami Sqitatted About a. Traveller In liulln. Oriental tradition, a wrlter In Chambers' JeunuU nays, assigns te monkeys a verv peculiar beginning. Satan, we are told, tried te Imltate tbe works of tlie Creater, but tailed signally te equal tlibm. Instead of the horse, he could produce only the ass: lnstead oftlie fish, a serpent; and Instead of man, the monkey. Vet in India, the paradlse of monkeys, they are held In high honor because of the nld which their kins, Hauoenuian, "iu-thedaysef old," gave te the god Rama when, te rescue his wlfe, Slta, he Invaded Ceylon ; Jlauoenman help ing te bridge the strait. Duty had taken me te Dhartnsala, a hill station considerably west of Simla. On the return journey I turned off the main rejd tovaeoVciielghl)orlng surlne, much voueratoti by the Hindoes, and called Jwnlanioekhoo. We had been told that self-led jets of natural fire burned ulght and day within its walls. The tomple was considered particularly sacred, and the Hindoe Rajahs of India vied with each ether as they de at llennrei, their holy city In doceraUng IL We knew that quite recently the Rajah of Varidkote had covered the huge doers or the teniple with thick plates of chased Nllver. A few hours' rlile brnimht n tn ll.e Uttle town, which lies en the hillside, be bo be lew the tomple. The natlve pilgrims, who tuwu iu meusanus. leuge in uie open air under the tiees and cook thelr own feet!; the rich bring tents for their accommo dation. Rut thore was no place for Europeans te ledge in ozcept the "usual "district officers' huncaiew." This is nlwnys a small house, with two or thrce rooms, built and fnrnished by the Gov ernment, mid put In charge of n man serv ant, who both leeks after it and attends te me wants or theso who occupy it. On tell ing the caro-tuker who we were, hoenoiicd the house; and we sent him into the town, ler uie uouuie urpo-je 01 procuring us seme feed and of inquiring from the priestH at what hour we might pay the lUIIipiUH visit The main read misses through a douse weed net 100 yards from tills house, which was mera man nan n lulie away from tlie nearest part of the town. Frem the read. a narrow Avenue had been cut among the trees te u small clearance around the house ; otherwise. It was quite buried In the weed. I found the house stuffy and damp, The stlllness around was oppressive Net a sound was heard except the munching of our liorseiu tlie neighboring stable or me rnre cry 01 a mru in tlie trees. There was nothing in the heuse te read, and Iietlilllir te de. Moreover. T liiul liml n long rlde mid felt rather stitr in the legs. Se rising fiem the chair I strelled out of the lietimi. After walking listlessly aieund It, and pacing the small cleared space in front, I followed the avenue te the main reaa ; ami tuen returning, passed into tlie ivoed, immersed in my own thoughts. It was literally a "twilight weed;" for Liieugn it was nearly neon en a bright iiiiKUHiuuy, ineirces stoeu se ciose anil their leaves grew se thick that scarce a paten ei Muuslilue lighted up a few favored inets.

Again they contracted the semi-circle as belere. And se they kept gradually coming nearer and nearer, and growing mere and mere ex cited. Still I remalned qulet and silent, and Mill In tbe distance the monkey youths played the mad gambols of their living pendulum, heedless of what engaged the attention of their seniors. All cise was silent and undisturbed no sign of man. The seml-clrcle hd gradually contracted le within fourteen or fifteen fet of where I steed; the inoukeys indeed were se near mat in in two or tliree leaps iney could easily have jumped upon me. I felt decidedly uneasy; wondered hew they would attack me, and whenT Frem the right, or the left, or the front! ly Jump ing en me from a distance, or waiting till quite ncarT Then I wondered whether the care-takcr would return In tlme te stave off tbe assault, for I was still quite clese te the house. Of the dreadful results or tbe attack, if ence made, I had net the slightest doubt. Hllll I remained leaning Immuvable against the tree, calm and cool, facing them straight, looking fully in to their faces all in turn, and showing out wardly no signs of flinching or alarm. Yet I began te think that it was new only a matter of a few mere minutes. liefere a quarter of an hour at the furthest they would be sure te begin te handle my clothes; nnd whether I permitted It, or resisted, or tried te lly, I would with equal certainty be attacked and overpowered nnd killed. Uitt mv dell verance was at hand. In the midst of one of thelr most noisy discus sions or did it only seem mere noisy be cause they wero new se nearT they one nnd all became sudenly silent nnd iwr fectly still. They seemed te be listening attentively. 1 listened, tee, but nt first could catcli no sound .any wliore ; the still ness of death was all around ; for even the young monkeys had ceased their tricks. What could have disturbed or silenced the noisy throng T Or what did they new pur pose 7 Next from afar off came the loud cry of n'monkey evidently the warning call of a scout en outpost duty. Theu, iirst, faintly from afar, and then gradually nearer and louder, came, down the main read through the weed, the welcome sound of thoclatterofa herse's hoofs at a swift walking pace. This it was which their quicker cars had detected long bofero I had heard of 11. They kept their ground or a row moments mero, nut tneir atten tion was tiew ovideutly divided between me nnd tlie approaching horse. Again, and nearer, the scout's cry sounded through the weed. There was an immediate stam pede. Oue and all the monkeys rushed off te the neighboring trees, and, scramb ling up the trunks and into the branches, they were, In the twinkling of an oye, lest te sight lu the leafy canopy overhead. They had disappeared iu thelr hundreds as rapidly as they had ceme, nnd almost as silently, save when the rustling among the leaves indicated their course ns they passed from tree te troe and Hed further into the weed. 1 waited still against the troe till tlie herse and his rider a mounted policeman going his rounds had ceme quite near. Then 1 made for the hnuse aud belted my my seir iu, thankful for the timely arrival and involuntary aid of the unconscious patrol. Unknowingly, but providentially, he had saved my lll'e. Through the window I could still see the monkeys iu tlie distant trees and hear their chatter. When the policeman had goue away, numbers of monkeys again descended te the ground nnd walked about, perhaps looking for me. I was, however, socure within doers ; nor did I open them till, half an hour later, the care-takcr returned with feed, and a message from the Brahmins, fixing the same afternoon as the time for visiting the temple. Having satisfied the calls for hunger, and, later en, visited the temple, I left Jwahimoekheo and its monkeys be hind me, and rode back the same day te Kangra. I don't care If I evor see a money again iu all my life. And what about tlie tomple and the flre 7 Well, thore was net much te see except "barbarje jtearls nnd geld." The temple is large and lelly, certainly, aud diners much from the usual style of Hindoe tomples; it is, however, without any pretension te architectural beauty and grandeur. Hut the constant Humes are really there. Thore are fissures iu tlie rock en which the tomple is built, especially iu a hollow, like a rectangular cistern, natural or uxcavated, iu the centre of the tomple. These fissures are vents for the escape of natural pis, produced most probably from vast roservolrs of earth-nils iu the bowels et tlie hill. These Jets of gas, ence hut en tire, naturally keep .burning for long Hiinces of time. Sometimes ene Jet falls, and sometimes another, te be- re kindled when a fresh supply of gas has been accumulated in Nature's laboratory below. When 1 was thore no fewer than seventeen jets wero inactive combustion in various parts of , the tomple, the greater number being in the cistern. WJIISTJVKD l'OK A WIVE. A I'. fc It.

I'll nover forget the day us long ns I re re ro member anything. We had n pretty heavy train behind us and were going at a lively speed when 1 noticed, possibly a hundred yards ahead of me, a number of cows en the track. I began te whlstle at ence. The cows passed ever the track safely enough and when I passed the farm heuse a few seconds later the farmer and two of his daughters, attracted by the unusual amount of whistling, had ceme out or the house and were standing en the perch. They had seen the cattle ceme down the embankment into tlie Ileitis, aud when I passed tlie two girls bowed and the nld gentleman waved his hands te thank me, I believe." "New boys, don't get rattled." con tinued the englncer,as seme or his listeners began te smile aud shake their heads ; " I thought or that farmer aud his two daugh ters until I turned In that night.

We started, Sam and I, and bofero I knew it we wero passing the farm. Hut no cattle, net a lilde nor hair of one. It didn't take me long te make up my mind what te de, se I whistled anyhow ler a crossing a half mile ahead. When I passed the heuse there, sure eneugh, wero the two girls. I bowed te them and turned hurriedly arnund te see Sam hanging far out the window. He thought that something must be wrong bocause i whistled in such an out of the way place. I pointed te tlie girls and he remembered tlie circumstances ofthe day before. " Te make a short story of it 1 whistled long and loud every tlme I get near that place, aud overy tlme 1 met tlie girls with a smile. One day the oue I had taken a fancy te did net appear In answer te my whistle, and I arranged the next day te make a call, for 1 began te worry about her.
