At the next station, when the train
stopped, he fathered up his belong
ing* and made for the door, but was
•topped before he could get off. This
attempt he made at every station, and
finally the conductor went to him say*
ing: "Look here, old man, you ji»t
set still and don 't move till you bear
the brakeman holler Staunton, then
you get off! See?"
He sat there a while quietly, and
then began to question the rest of the
passengers as to their acquaintance
with btaunton and its people.
Thinking I could derive some enter
tainment from him, I changed my seat
to the front of his. and, turning
around, addressed some words to him
with an amiable and seductive smile.
He looked at me a moment and sol
emnly took his musty leather wallet
from his side-pocket and throat it
deep down into itis boot, saying:
"Sow, then, young man, what you
want to know, eh ?"
This action set the entire car full of
people roaring with laughter and al
most brought a blush to my cheek,
which eemtation had scarcely gone
when the brakeatan opened the door
and yelled "Staunton!"
We were at the moment crossing a
trestle about fifty feet in height, upon
the slanting, heavily-wooded side of a
mountain. We could look down the
hillside over the tree tops and see a
silvery stream threading it* winding
way through a Mack and dark swamp.
The old settler rose quickly at the
sound of the brakeman'a voice, packed
ui> bis belongings and, going to the
pisiform, stepped rigbt off.
As we passed we got one glimpse of
him sailing down. Homebody pulled
the bell-rope, stopping the train at
once, and a relief party was organ
iaed, whith went down the mountain
tide until we came to the spot where
he struck Drat, a tall hemlock. It
looked like a gigantic Christmas tree.
Pendent from its branches were
socks, collar*:, handkerchiefs, chewing
tobacco, chickens, rolls of butter,
fancy goods, bams, sandwiches, boots
and shoes, notions, suspenders, shoe
laces, bandboxes, samples of cloth,
hardware and gents' furnishing goods.
Further down the hillside we found
some patent medicine bottles, the old
umbrella, the butter crock and the
plug hat. Then we reached the old
man, who was up to his waist in black
mud, busily engaged in washing the
same mud (from a whisky flask which he
had somehow managed to retain in his
pocket through aU his exciting flight.
He was as cool as a cucumber, and,
when we yanked him out of the mud,
remarked: "This yere railroad travel
ing do beat hell, don't it?"
We climlied up the hill, gathering
hi« belonging* as we proceeded, and
when we arrived at the train the con
ductor anaTily inquired; "What in
thunder dw you mean by jumping off
like that?" 7
Why, my friend," blandly answered
he of the goat-like heard ana shattered
garments, " you told me yourself to
when I heard the bralreman
holler Staunton,' and I got off."

It is a kmg Use indeed which has
no turniag. and if tbe report which
baa reached u* of the taking of Obdd

to be, tbe turning rn tbe affair* of tbe

calkd a scoundrel. He gives him the
first;epithet, he says, because be had
stolen the sultan from its rightful

the grossest, by which one Moham
' medan can insult another—because
having stolen it be has spread nothing
but ruin and devastation from one
border to another. For hit own part
be declares his Intention of restoring
it to peace and order and f^JKgypt.
This, if true, is interesting news. It
wQI be likely to lead to nothing less
than the fall of mabdism and the sub
stitution in its place of tbe openly ad
mitted political as well as religions
leadership of the great skeik of the
gennssiya. The importance of the
Senuissya as a feature in Central
African aiairs has long been recog
nised. They favor the sect of the
Mussulman reiision. to which before
the outbreak of mshdism almost all
tbe Mohammedan populations of cen
tral Africa belonged. The founder of
the sect, Hheik Senussi 1., was a sort
of Eastern Savonarola, who, after
preaching in vain against the impurity
and degeneration of modern Moham
medanism, was ofakiged to leave Mecca
rather less than half a centurv ago,
and passing through Egypt, where b»
refused tbe offer of the reigning
khedive to establish himself, took up
his residence in Tripoli. The extraor
dinary influence that be acquired
there is a matter of history.
The fall of Abdel Kader probablv
contributed to political as
well as religions influent* in the North
of Africa in his hands. In any ease
the Turkish government recognised
tbe value of his friendship and entered
into a sort of tacit alliance with him
with the result that to this day tbe ad
ministration of Tripoli is practically
carried on by the chosen regents of
the Senussiya. A# a religious sect
their authority has spread right
through tbe North of Africa and
Egypt into Syria down to the Zanzi
bar coast, on to the Congo, where
Tippo Tib Mid his followers are said
to be ardent devotees of tbe Senussi
doctrines, and especially into the
regions of Darfur, Wadai and the
neighboring states. Anything like a
general rising of the Senussiya would
mean such a Mohammadan move
ment as has not been seen for centu
But the first Shiek Senussi died in
1869, and his son, the present Sid
Hamed Senussi, has hitherto lived in
seclusion in the oasis of Siwah, receiv
ing witb veiled face the caravans of
pilgrims who go to htm, and while
maintaining and spreading the reli
gious influence of his father, he has
professed to take absolutely no part in
worldly politics. In 1882 Arabia sent a
deputation to him asking for hi* sup
port in the movement which was to be
directed against foreign influence. He
received tbe deputation kindly, but
sent them back with tbe message that
he could take no part in any political
In the end oI I*B4 the mahdi sent
a petition asking also for his support,
and received a similar reply. He has
cared only (or his position as a relig
ious chief. His signature in the let
ters which he writes to his followers is
Senu*»i el Mahdi, and there has al
ways been an expectation among his
followers that he would come forward
some day and declare himself as the
true mahdi appointed of (Jod. It is
said that if he did the number of his
followers in Egypt itself would be
very great. There are villages both in
lower and upder Egypt which are in
habited exclusively by Senussiya. The
Bedouins of the desert are devoted to
him. In the Bayum the people speak
confidently of his coming. Tnese facts
are enough to indicate the nature of
the interest which attaches to the re
cent news.
The accounts which we receive from
the other parts of the Soudan describe
the misery of the people tinder the
misrule and tyranny of the mahdi as
passing almost beyond the limit' of
human endurance, i saw the other
day a (ireek refugee from Berber who
had iust arrived, and he Rave me a
Spnic description of the condition of
town. It was taken by the
mahdi's troops nearly five years ago.
The property of the inhabitants was
confi-cated, their land and boat*
pasted into the hands of the amir,
their houses were all pulled down,
their women And children were in
many case* massacred. Afterward
they'were all allowed to turn the land
and boats, which were their sole
mean- of livelihood, on condition of
paying a tax of seven-tenths of the
produce, but they have remained in a
state mi abject "poverty. No attempt
ha* l«en made to rebuild the town.
People huddle nn<!er tents made of
straw mats or camp in corners of the
ruined boum.
No one thinks of having any other
food than a handful of com "which
they eat raw. and a drink of water
from the well. The mahdi forces
their, all to wear hi* dress, which they
prwvwle at their own expense. They
are also driven to the mosque rtvo
times a day. The kurbash is incon
stant requisition, and r.o one is «!-
}o«red to leave the town except when
called upon to join the mabdi's troop-.
Then they are oWired to *erve without
pay and to feed and arm themselves,
tor five years Ibis thraldom wa-en
dured . and the people are described
with a pathetic simplicity as "not
content, but looking to all side* for
what thf narrator called in the broken
