Friendly Murder.
When Commodore Billings and Mr.
Main were on the river Kaldma they
hud for attendant n young man from
Kanoga, an island between Kamchat
ka and North America. One day Mr.
Main asked him, "What will the sav
ages do to me if I full into their pow
er?"
"Sir," said the youth, "you will nev
er fall into their power if I remain
with you. I always carry n sharp
knife, and if I see you pursued and
unuhlc to escape I will plunge my
knife into your heart; then the savages
can do nothing to you."
Tliis recalls the wonts of tiie French
knight reported by Joinville. "Swear
to me," said Queen Margaret, "that if
the Saracens become musters of Iiainl

they can take me."
"Willingly," returned the knight. "I
had already thought of doing so if the
contingency arrived."

The lichen is remarkable for tlio great
age to which it lives, there being good
grounds for believing that they endure
as long as a hundred years. Their
growth is exceedingly slow, almost be
yond belief, indicating that only a little
nourishment is necessary to keep them
alive. In a dry time they have the pow
er to suspend growth altogether, renew
ing it again at tiie fall of rain. This
peculiarity alone Is enough to make the
lichen a vegetable wonder, ns it Is a
property possessed by no other species
of plant. Another interesting fact about
lichens Is that they grow only where
the air is free from dust and smoke.
They may be said to be a sure indica
tion of the purity of the air, as they are
never found growing in cities and
towns, where the atmosphere is impreg
nated with dust, soot, Bmoke and other
Impurities.
DRIVING OUT A DEMON.
Queer Men no !>>■ Which Tnrlnr I.amna
Cored 11 Fever,
On tiie plains of Tartary, tiie "lund
of grass," the struggles between good
spirits and demons often occasion con
siderable annoyance for tiie ignorant
tribesmen and afford profitable em
ployment for the lamas. I'eres Hue
and (Jabot, French travelers who
crossed them threescore or more years
ago, witnessed tiie struggles of the
learned men to drive out one of the
demons.
Tiie aunt of the chief of an encamp
ment in the valley of the dark waters
was ill of a fever. Her nephew waited
in patience, but she did not get well,
and at last lie calk'd in tiie lamas. His
worst fears were confirmed. A demon
of considerable rank was present lu
her and must be east out, a task for
which the lamas would need to lie well
paid. Eight others were at once called
in by the first, and together they made
from dried herbs an image which they
called the "demon of intermittent fe
vers." This image they put In the pa
tient's tent.
An hour before midnight the lamas
ranged themselves in n semicircle in
one end of the tent, with cymbals, sea
shells, hells, tambourines and other
noisy instruments. The remainder of
the family made up the circle, while
the patient crouched opposite the Image
of tiie demon. The chief lama hud be
fore him a copper basin filled with mil
let and sonic little paste Images. The
tent was full of smoke from the hearth
lire.
Upon a given signal the clerical or
chestra begun a noisy overture, the lay
witnesses heating time with their
hands. The diabolical concert over, the
grand lama opened the book of exor
cisms and began chanting the forms.
From time to time he scattered millet
to the four points of the compass.
Sometimes he would quit the regular
cadence of prayer and iudulge in an
outburst of apparently indomitable
rage, abusing the herb image with
fierce Invective and furious gestures.
When he had finished he gave a signal
with Ills arms, and the other lamas
burst Into a tremendously noisy cho
rus, setting all the noisy instruments to
work at the same time.
The lay congregation, having started
up, ran out of the tent and three times
circled round It, heating it with sticks
and yelling in (lie most blood curdling
manner all (lie while, and then reen
tered the tent as precipitately as they
had quilted it. Then, while tlio others
hid their faces, the grand lama set lire
to the herb Image and carried it from
the tent Into the plain, where he watch
ed It burn and anathema I izod It. In
the tent the other lamas tranquilly
chanted prayers in a solemn tone.
The expulsion having boon thus ac
complished in the finest manner, the
members of the family secured torches
nnd, accompanied by the nine lamas,
all making night hideous with cries and
healing of instruments, escorted Hie pa
tient to another tent, where she fell
asleep, to awaken later without her
fever. Ti incantations succeeded, to
the amazement of the travelers, and
the illness did not return. — Youth's

The Kent Dirk Turpin.
The real hero of Dick Turpin's ride
to York Is said to have been a highway
man named William Nevison, who was
born at Pontefract in 1039. The story
goes that on one occasion Nevison rob
bed a gentleman at Gadshlll, then rode
to Gravesend, crossed the Thames and
galloped to Chelmsford. After baiting
here lie pushed on to Cambridge and
Godmanchester, thence to Huntington,
where he baited Ills mare again and
slept an hour. Afterward he took to
the North road, reached York the sumo
afternoon, changed his clothes, went to
the howling green nnd made himself
an object of notice to the lord mayor.
Being subsequently charged with the
robbery, lie cited tlio lord mayor ns a
witness and was acquitted on the sup
position that it was Impossible for a
man to be at two such remote places as
Gadshlll and York on the same day.
Afrlrann Wash, but Never Wipe.
Great attention Is given In most of
the African tribes to the care of the
body. The teeth are cleansed with a
stick which has been chewed into a
kind of brush. The hands are washed
frequently, not by turning nnd twist
ing and rubbing them together one
within the other, as with us, but by a
straight up and down rubbing, such as
Is given to the other limbs. This man
ner of washing is so characteristic tnat
an African might be distinguished by
it from a European without reference
to the color. The sun Is their only
towel.
