humility befofe'the fto'sses'aYe great things; they .woflld bV taught
that this trade that hadbeen chosen for them should be their life
work.
And at the other schools? The children o the njonied people
would go to them, and they would be taught to look down on the
children of "the" vocational schools, and all the rottenest Snobbery of
school aristocracy would become ingrained, in them.
Is it any wonder that the National Association of Manufac

New York, Nay. 19. Robert
C. Taite, of Los Angeles, is either
a most remarkable liaror else he
has had some most remarkable
experiences.
Taite arrived hereyesterday "on
the Red Star steamer Lapland,
from Africa, and this is the story
he told:
"I and another white man, Gor
don Campbell, of Glasgow, Scot
land, penetrated into the cannibal
district of the Congo Free State
eight months ago.
"We hired ten cannibals, and
built a raft, and started to float
down, the river to get back to civ
ilization. "Fever and ague came upon us,
and three of the cannibals died.
We put them overboard imme
diately to prevent the other can
nibals eating them.
"Soon after this we bumped in
to a colony of hippopotami and
crocodiles. They upset our boat,,
and ate up five of the cannibals.
"Campbell and I drew our pis
tols and climbed on the back of a -J
big hippopotamus. 'He took us
ashore
"Only two of the -cannibals
reached shore with us. One of
them washungry for human flesh
and attacked his companion. We
had to' kill him." The other was
killed soon" "after by a giant
gorilla:
"We tVere still in the cannibal
country, and we were attacked by
the cannibals several times, but
always managed to beat them off.
"It took us six months to get
out of that country and back into
civilization. I lost sixty pounds
on the trip.
"I am going home to Los An
geles now to rest a while. Then
I am going back to Africa to hunt
for gold, There's lots of gold in
Africa."
