When "slavery - was - abolished in
the Brazils there sprang up to take,
its place a traffic hardly loss accursed;
, the coolie trade. The coolie was a
Chinaman who agreed to leave his
-toountry for a term of years ,at stated,
wages^but after a while vessels . were
fitted* ?but and dispatched to various
islands in . tho' Pacific and other seas,

rT~ ?ag dffiit? 'offender's- and malefactors'
along with honest laborers. Instead
of giving a'th??f the bastinado;.be was
;t Bent to the coolie barracks; instead of.
lopping off the head of a pirate'hie was
deported. Among evory-500 . coolies
were at least 100 malefactjrs, add re

. not a man was spared. '
' - Our ship, the Princess, of New
' York, was . lyiug at Macao, south of
;i Hong-Kong, in ihefa'r of 1868, when
four, differ, nt craft, were loading with
coolies at 1 be same time. Macao was
one of tlu. great shipping points, and
%flr?ryfch:ng was carried on . auder th?
supervision of government officials. I
,v saw a Brazilian ;brig take on 480
'''coolies, au d a worse lot of men could
nofc possibly have beea-scraped to
>' gather in any country. -^They wero to
be housed betweeu decks, and the brig
carried two cannon and tea soldiers to
j?eop them in1 stfb;ection. They must
be looked after as sharply as convicta |
'/on their way to" Australia in the old
days of the penal settlements. This
brig, which waa called , the Don,' got
away a week ahead of us, and, through
some blunder, with only a few of her
.waterrcasks' filled. Sha had head

"Thai snlell' would settle it if I
waa deaf;? dumb and blind anti had no

- It was about six o'clock, when we
r lost the freeze, and the crew knocked
off for supper and spent the following
three hours yarning and smoking."
The brig* was all right, so far as we
could obserye,, and we-had no partic
ular interest in watching her. About
. nine o'clock, however^ we .were all
"startled into sudden "activity by a
most-horrible din from the coolie. It
seemed as if two or, three, hundred
'voices' were y?lliug in chorus, and the
sound did not v cease until broken in
upon by the reports of firearms.
"I'll tell you' exactly what's taking
place on boar cl that Io How," said the
- mate, who had been listening intently.
"He's 8hoi-t ot water,and the wretches

half an hour there was another chorus
. "?Ty?frVshrieks and ' curses, and we
plainlyheardj J;]h^taJtfl.e^tilwCiiains^
TEre? or four muskets were fired aud
all was quiet again. But it wasn't
yet 10 o'clock when the brig launched
'-?. a boat, five men got into her, and in
a very few minutes she waa. alongside,
and a man who announced himself as
the mate of^th?r'cooli? was on deck.
Everybody knew his errand. We
?ad plenty o?.*" freshwater, but would
-/OUT captain*spare him a single pint?
Most sailors ' hated coolies as no other
clajs did, and our captain had gone
about that evening with i round oaths
falling off his lips to think that he had
one under his nose aud was helpless.
If he refused to spare the water the
poor , wretches would die; if he let it
. go they would be spared for a life of
slavery. The man who boarded us
was a Spaniard, and he had a surly
countenance and disagreeable voice.
He didn't beat about the bush at all,
but walked up to our captain, who was
standing stiffly on the quarter-deck,
touched his hat and said:
u "J're. maifl-oi^ike.-trip- yoncrer ant}

. few casks of water.- Through a.blun

"You.ought to be nshamed of the
' business you are in I" exclaimed the
captain, os he paced back and forth.
"Every ' man ..to his own idea,"
calmly xopliod the :mate. "The main
- thing now is -to get water for the
heathens; If we don't get it, not one.
of them will be alive by tomorrow
Our captain hung out for a while.
While -He hated to savo the coolies to
the profit of the traders, he was too
merciful to ba the indireot cause of
their death, and he finally consented
to spareAfive casks of water. Arrange
ments for the transfer were being

time being by running aloft, but all
the others seemed to havo been killed.
You cannot suppose that' we were
quiet spectators of such a scene.' -' We
wanted to be called away to help sup
press the outbreak, but our captain
had a mortal hatred for coolies aud
announced that he would not interfere
in the' slightest. It cut us men,
though,to see the ?rew making a fight
against such odds, and gradually fall
ing back and fighting to the last, with
out getting our help. When the grand
rush was made, and the remnant of
the crew driven aloft, 41 sort of groan
went, through our ship, and more than,
one man muttered against our cap-i
tain's policy. - When the Chiueso got

and broke ont of the cargo a lot of
pressed brick which had been ordered
by a contractor at Singapore. They
weighed about five pounds each, and
we piled up n-thousand or moro ' at
different points on the deck. We were
still handling the bricks when the Chi

sailors in the rigging of the brig, and
eight or ten started aloft after them.

did not dare send off a boat The

coolies made ready to attack us. The
brig had three b?ats which they could
get at, and each boat was crowded
with men. They had muskets, cut
lasses, eapstan-bnrB, belaying ?ins
and other weapons, and while they
were making preparations they kept
up a yelling and whooping which
. would have don o cr?dit * to Indians.
Those who wore to remain aboard
j defied andtaunted us and evidently
'considered us certain victims. I don't
think any man of us felt what people
call fear as we saw the threa boats
leave the brig and pull toward us, but
we could be forgiven for doubting
whether we had strength to beat them
off. The boats kept together, and it
was evident that they meant to board
on tho same side. This was the better
for ns.. Our bricks and other weapons
were hastily.moved, and while we were
at* this work the captain stood on the
rail and shouted to the coolies and
warned them to keep off*. The answer
to this was a shot from a musket, and
the bullet whistled so close to his
head that he lost no time in getting
.off the rail. We.saw that we had got
to tight, and we were as ready as we
could be when they laid us aboard.
Fortunatolyfor us ?hey had no strat

pulled together for our bows aud
hooked on in ? crowd. The bark had
very high bulwarks, and the Chinese,

How Div II.orH3.-i Died.
Having reached tho firing-line,
many officers left their horses tied to
'th?*brush on the sands of San Juan
Jriver.- Baggage and gu i mules were
turned loose, and stood stupidly
about Ther? was-a constant tweet
of bullets coming through the trees
from the Spanish position. One horse
caught three almost in a bunch; an
other passed through them, and he
lay down on his side, panting desper
ately. A big gun-mule lay on his side
gasping, and another horse sat down
?ike a; dog,- giving every evidence of
great pain. A ball out the skin on a
mule'stknee, but he only stamped the
leg as'though to get rid . of a trouble
some fly. ' .' X
The thing about it which was !
strenge to me was that the horses 1
which were untouched seemed sleepy 1
-they gave no evidence of excitement
?except a slight pricking of the ears J
.toward the bill. One almost wondered
if they suspected that things were not
right. Even the blood which was all 1
about on the sands, from horses and 1
men, did not have its general effect
of scaring them.
Why do not horses die for their
country? They do not have a pre
vious intention of BO doing-the act is
not voluntary. Well, possibly. Neith
er does a conscript die voluntarily, or
a man put war-stamps on checks vol
untarily, but it's for the country jiiBt
the. same. A mule does more work
for his country and more suffering
than a man. It also^takes more reve
nue stamps to keep him going. But
why epea^, of these things? It is suf

and honor nil mules.-Frederic Bern

..itest information received
s to the effect that a complete bal loon
ng corps from England is on the
icene of action. . The great Napoleon
egorded military balloons as of "no
strategical importance." He i was
Lccompanied by a ballooning corps
luring his second campaign in Egypt,
mt the wagons containing the acces
sories fell into British hands, and this
calamity no doubt influenced his
jpinion. However, since those days
nilitary balloons have done good work
m many occasions, and it is con
idently expected that their advent in
?he Transvaal will afford many lessons
n the possibilities of ballooning in
The British balloon division is fully
equipped for the work it is to per
form. The chief work which it will
be expected to execute may be summed
ap as follows: First, to discover the
whereabouts of the Boers hidden in
cover; second, to make observations
!>.ud to take photographs; third, to
?arry dispatches. . Invaluable infor
mation concerning the enemy's
movements will be telephoned from
the men iu the car to thoae below.
The balloon, too,. will render ex
cellent service for map-making pur
poses. Photograph? will be taken
vertically downward that will shew
every detail of the country and the
position of the Boer forces. It is
il Y a matter of practice for skilled
Surveyors to become efficient in judg
fcg distances and heights from a bal
loon car and in making accurate
Sketches and maps.
The British military balloons now
going to the front hold about 10,000
oubic feet of hydrogen. Each balloon
will carry two persons-one in the
oar and the other in the netting
These balloons are made of gold
beaters' skin, which is far superior in
every way to silk. Eaoh balloon will
be placed on a wagon and drawn by
twelve horses to the scone of opera
tions. The gas will be conveyed in
wagons drawn by & steam traction
engine or by four horses. This gas
is stowed in steel cylinders, 110
cylinders being required to fill one
balloon of 10,000 cnbic feet capacity.
Hitherto one cause of great concern
in the ballooning operations has been
the difficulty of obtaining a balloon
sufficiently steady to ensure the mak
ing of accurate observations. It has
also been feared that the difficulties
attending the manufacture, handling
and - conveyance of the gas might
prove insurmountable. In order that
this may not prove a stumbling block
in the Transvaal, the British army is
being also furnished with equipment
for the rapid ereotion of observation
towers. The care of these is entrust
ed to the Boyal Engineers, a section
of the British army whose operations
have always been distinguished by
excellence of work. One of the illus
trations shows one of these towers
after it has reached a height of 110
feet. It will bo seen that tho ob
servation posts afford overy facility i
for reconnoitering tho movements of
the Boer army. The results of tho I
observations made by balloon or tower 1
will be communicated to tho general
?ff headquarter bj means of tele
hone and telegraph Jines, to W

But speaking of cotton-strange
