Two of the mou, accompanied by two "gins," went with a few of our ship's company into a field to show us their exercises with spear, waddy, and boomerang. Tho performances wero wonderful. With their ten-foot-long, finger-thick switch of a spoar they struck a shilling on a stick fifty feet away. Tho waddy a heavy, yard long, inch-thick stick was also thrown with precision. Tho hurling of tho boomerang was as beautiful as amaz ing. Thrown at a point near tho ground twenty yards ahead, it grad ually rises beyond, and curving up ward 200 feet, soars backward and gen ernally falls 100 yards behind tho thrower. Ho can, however, bring it nearer himself. Tho boomerang ro volvcs swiftly on Its passage through the air, and has a beautiful appearance I was never weary of watching this marvel of savage skill and strength, and they were delighted with my ad miration, especially so long as it was represented in shillings.

If Virgil found it impossible to enu merate the different kinds of grapes Hn.l their names, how much more so is it tho case to-day P But his praises of the Faleriiiau wino are well deserved. Whim V'.ilirniitn in excellent and has an aroma and bouquet of its own with al strong and generous. Tuscany is deservedly proud of her "Chiunti," nnl "Vin Santo" from nnv resnectablo 'f'ltlfirin" Is not to be despised. But tho worst of Italian wines is that you nr Hi-lilnin sure of rettinr tho samo class of wines two years running. Tim niimner of niakincr wino has been changed since tho time of Virgil. Tho white oxen bring the grapes from tho fields In a vat piarou on an unwioiuy, heavy ox-cart painted scarlet, to tho "tinaji" or place where tho "tini" or vats aro. '1 he grapes aro emptied out into "bigoncie," tall wooden pails without handles, which tho men carry on their shoulders. Tho crapes aro poured into immense open vats, whero they are stampoa upon nignianu morn ing by the barefooted peasants to pro vent the upper stratum becoming acid by too long a contact with tho air. When the fermentation has ceased tho clear must bo run off; a man goes into the vat and pitchforks tho murk into "bigoncie" again, which aro emptied into tho wino press. As a pictorial sub ject this press is delightful, but it is in convenient and extremely wasteful. Two huge posts of wood support an im mense beam, through which works a wooden screw, finisning at the bottom in a square block of wood with two square holes straight through it. Un der this is what is called tho "gabbia" irti(rr. a. round, vat-shaned. iron- clamped receptacle, mado of strong bars ol wood, ino muric is put. inu this, and whon it is full "toppi," round slabs of wood, like colossal cheeses, are piled on top of tho murk. Then a long polo is stuck into ono oi mo square boles at tho bottom of tho screw, and to Mm other end is hooked a rope. which is secured round a turning pil lar of wooil about 8 leei on, wun a Han dle against which three or four mon throw thoir whole weight. Slowly, with manv creaks and groans, the huge block of "wood descends on the round slnhs. and tho rone curls round the pil lar, while from between the bars of the press rushes forth a dark, turbid, dirty looking liquid, which one can hardly hnlinva will ever torn into rubr wino. This oporation is repeated by unhook ing the rope, lifting the beam out of its bole, and carrying it on a man's shoul iinr tn f h holn behind, until tho murk by haer physical force is pressed into a compact mass" and contains no more liquid. Virgil's excellont advico about thor oughly seasoning and breaking np the land before planting the vines is car riod out to the letter in Tuscany, where tho ditcher makes a trench at least six feet deep and four feot ' wide, called "scasso realo," which is left open to sun, wind and rain for six months or a J ear before it is again filled in, aftor aving been drained in a rough and ready manner by pitching all availablo stones into the bottom of the' trench. The vine-cuttings, "magliuoli," or bet tor still, two-year oia rooteu pianis, "barbatelle," aro planted two on each side of a young maple tree destined for thoir support. If a vineyard is to be made, the quincunx system, recom mended by Virgil, is always followed, and you will hear tho head of a gang of workmen say, "they must bo like sol diers, properly in line." -ongman'i Magazine. An Old Maid's Recent rio Will. Miss Koziah B. Blackburn, an elderly spinster, who earned a scanty liveli hood by sewing for charitably disposed persons, and who was generally sup posed to be very poor, occupied for a long time a small room on tho top floor of a house in Brooklyn. Sho was re cently found dead in her room, and her will, which had been deposited with her spiritual adviser, showed her to bo possessod of f 1,200, and its provisions mado it compulsory with her executor at her death to dress hor body in white, )laco it in a solid rosewood casket, laving six silver handles and a silver plate, on which should bo incrihed her name and ago. The hoarse at her fu neral was to be drawn by six black horses, and there wero to bo six pall bearers, wearing whito gloves and white ties. Hor body was to he buried in tho Evergreen Cemetery beside her parents, and a tombstone bearing tho inscription: 'Itlensoil In tin who preserves tlmse stone. And rursud ho ho who inevps thosu bonus. Was to be erected over her grave. Any money remaining after tho expense of tho numerous behests had been defray ed sho desired her executor to place at interest, to be paid to a man to keop her grave in order. em Watterson a Sweet MiiiKcr. Several of our exchanges express as tonishment that Henry Watterson and Murat Halstead should have been in vited to meet Christine Nilsson at tho wbito house in Washington. They evi dently do not know what they are talk ing about Watterson is a capital singer and Halstead used to give in struction in piano playing and thor ough bass before ho embarkod in jour nalism. Mmo. Nilsson was charmed to moot these gentlomen and renew an acquaintance she formed with them during her first visit to this country, twelve years ago. She reminded Mr. Watterson that she sang the towor scene from "Trovatoro" with him at the Gait House, in Louisville, in the winter of 1871. "Come, let us repeat it now, for old time's sake," said she, cordially. Mr. Watterson tried to beg off, but his excuses were in Tain. President Arthur pleaded, Nilsson insisted and Mr. Halstead volunteered to play the accompaniment on the plana He had to consent, and in all fairness it must be aaid he sang very well Watterson's voice is a trifle worn, -but his dramatic intensity and the power 'of feeling 1 ho throws into his singing fully compen sate for dereliction on the part of his once noble organ. Chicago News. "Yea," said the English nobleman, I was disgusted with. Newport. Why, there were two other' Earls there when I arrived, and I dldl tegia to monop olize all the attention. America is be coming too overrun by nobleman. ' ' Throw it Out. "Well," said Conductor Jones to a G'obe representative, "ono of tho fun niest things that ever happened on my train occurred one day at Bethlehem. An old man whom I hud noticed in tho ill awing room car as a very lively and talkative traveler got off at that sta tion. I was standing at an open win dow of tho car just as tho train was starting off, when whom should 1 see but the jolly old man rushing toward me from tho outside. Ho ponted frantically to a window just back of mo, exclaiming as well as ho could whilo trying to catch his breath: "Mv valiso left it thero throw it out" Turning quickly I saw a large black valiso in the scat indicated, and, seiz ing it, rushed to the rear platform of the car, whero thero was quite a num ber of gentlemen. Tossing it to ono of them, as they blocked the way so I couldn't get through, I shouted: 1 "Throw it to the old man there." ' Without a moment's hesitation tho man did as directed. As tho valise left his hand bo made an ineffectual effort to regain possession of it, then, with a muttered exclamation which I couldn't comprehend, leaped from tho train, seized tho ill-fatod baggage, and was just in time to board ono of tho rear cars. It was all dono in an in stant, although it takes time to tell the story. In a minute he mado his way forward and angrily asked: "What did you toll mo to throw this yalise off forP" "Because tho old man wanted it." "Well, then, he's a thief. That val iso is mine." "Then," said I, laughing, for the wholo situation seemed so perfectly ridiculous, "why undor the sun did you throw it off at all? Didn't you know your own property? "Yes, but it was ail so suuaen, ana you told mo to throw it and" liut tho roar oi laugnier inai greeieu his explanation broko short his son tenco, and he was voted a leather mod al by tho passengers. 1 was convinced tuoro was somo ex planation for tho old man's conduct for I was personally acquainted with him, and knew that ho was as honest as the dav was long. About three weeks after I saw him at the depot, and questioned him on the subject. "1 thought, saia no, as ins race grow round and red, and his eyes twinkled with merriment, "I thought I should die to soo that follow hyper round after his valise and hustle on board tho train again. I didn t expect to causa so much trouble." "Well, where was your valise all tho time?" "Oh, tho driver took it without my knowlcdgo and put it on top of the stage. Ho s boon carrying it round ever since, and I just got it this mo ment Good day !r " Boston Globe. Hartley Campbell. While in conversation with a gentle man who claims to havo known Bart ley Campbell from boyhood, ho told tho following story of how tho now famous dramatist came to take up journalism and playwriting: "Bartloy and I wero working to gether in a brickyard near Pittsburg, both at tho samo bench. One of the helpers had just brought a fresh load of clay and deposited it on the bench in front of us. Bartloy took up a handful of cold, moist earth and com menced to work it in his hands. Pres ently he stopped and secmod lost in thought All at once he dashed the clay no was working down on tho heap and looking at mo, said: 'If ever I mold another handful of clay may the life bo squeezed out of mo,' and going to whero his coat hung on a nail ho took it down, put it on, and startod down hill. 'Hold on, Bartley,' said I, 'If you'ro going to quit, I quit too,' and 1 took my coat and followed him. Wo went to tho boss and got our pay, and that afternoon started for Pitts burg, whero ho obtained a position on ono of tho papers. I need not add that ho never wont back to brick making." New SlyloH in Revolvers. "This," said an expert in firearms, "is tho old-stylo of self-cocking revol ver, and this is tho new." 'lho first was a short, stout, clumsy affair of the pepper-box stylo in vogue thirty years ago or more. It was loaded with pow der and ball, sent home with a ramrod, and the hammer, a flat one, was in view in tho usual place. You see it took per cussion caps, and when the owner hap pened to have any to fit it, and tho spring was strong enough to make that cap explode, the weapon was good for five shots with five pulls of tho trigger. It was a clumsy ami most unreliable weapon. It was hard to hit anything smaller than a barn-door at ordinary pistol-shot distance, and when tho ob ject was hit it was not damaged much. Here is one a litllo more modern and a littlo more sure. Tho hammer is out of sight and tho trigger is ring-shaped. This, too, was heavy, and so compli cated that it was very liable to got out of order. Then camo the self-cocker, which used cartridges, but the tirst ex periments were failures, and thoy fell into disuse." "What was their weak point?" asked tho reporter. "The spring. It did not hold its strongth, and aftor a little use the pis tol was apt to miss fire. That naturally drove it out of favor at once, and very properly. That weakness has been overcome, and springs are now so ad- Iusted that the shot is sure every time, s it dangorous? Well, no, not more so than any other kind of a pistol; and in cases where a fraction of a second counts, one of these is worth a bushel of hand-cockers. They are a little more dangerous in the hand of a nervous man who does not intend to shoot I have known of several cases in which persons have escaped conviction for murder on the ground that in their ex citement they palled too hard on' the trigger, and the pistol went off by Occi dent But any kind of pistol la unsafe in suoh hands,' aaoVwhso ire think of the advantages which' a' quick." reliable weapon gives to a man in an emergen cy, we are bound to admire the .self cocker. Five shdte la three seconds is pretty quick work, . but that's what it will do, and do it every time. As a pocket pistol it U a safe to carry as any other kind. Boston Qhbe. Canada's Treatnie.it of the Indian. Canadian statesmen say that the In dians in tho States wouM not coNt any moro than they do if congress boarded them all at the Fifth Avenuo Hotel, wheroas in Canada each Indian costs a littlo loss than would keep a private in tho army. There aro about a quarter of a million Indians split up into littlo bands, whose reserves aro sprinkled over tho land like tho lakes of Maino. Tho government keeps an account with each band, sells for thorn what lamls aro not wanted, and holds 13,000,000 in trust for them. It instructs them in farming, pro vides them with implements, seeds and cattle, instructs their children, and feeds all who need food with pork and grain. Already the home farms, where the savages were shown how to till the soil, are rapidly being closed up, and the rations of food are being with drawn from one band after anothor as the Indians manifest ability to store and preserve their crops through the winters. Nearly all the Indians do something toward self-support. Some make baskets, others make snow shoes and toboggans, others sell furs, others make barrels, others catch fish, and so on. Five years ago the Blackfeet were on the warpath. Now almost every family has a house and farm.' During the present session of Parlia ment Sir John Macdonald introduced a bill to complete their civilization and convert them into politicians by an act designed to "train them for the exer cise of municipal powers." The up shot of the whole thing, as oenator A. W. Ogilvie put it tho other day, is that "the United States means well, but her agents hold that no Indian is a good Indian except a dead Indian, while Canada believes they are human be ings, and that it costs less to treat them kindly than to fight them." AT. Y. Sun. m Not a Dude. I saw a groat crowd entering the door of Coup's Museum, and followed. I noticed that most of that throng wore their spring styles, especially the men. Men seem to have less sense in forcing the seasons than the opposite sex. I overheard a hundred remarks on spring, but this is incidental to this paragraph. I mot Coup and foil to chatting with him about some of tho curiosities in his Congress of Nations. Ho directed my attention to ono of the red men whom he had to represent the race which is growing lazier as it grows less. This savage seemod to be dozing like a In zy dog, unmindful of tho stare of his audience. I ventured to say something about the indifference of the chief I supposo he had been a chief when Coup remarked that he had never seen him evince any evi dences of spirit but once. When he was engaged they tried to make him wear pants, and he would have acced ed, perhaps, if they had bought him a pair of hand-me-downs. "But," said Coup, "I thought I would do him proud, so I took him to a fashionable tailor, who made him a pair of tight fitting trousers of the dude cut II never saw as mad an Indian in my life. He tore thorn off and informed me, through his Interpreter, that it was humiliating enough for him to pose as a curiosity of an almost extinct race without wearing tight pants." I givo it in the hope that the taste of even a wild and untutored specimen of an un civilized race may have some effect But I doubt it. lie might mako a re formation on such people with a toma kawk. The Meddler, in Chung Herald. The Connecting Link Between Ani mal and Vegetable Life. Last week some cod fishermen brought to New York a large specimen of the actinia, which they found cling ing to a rock off Barnegat Inlet. Prof. Rice says it is the finest and largest specimen he has ever seen. It was at once placed in a tank, and the Profes sor has been feeding it with small pieces of meat and chopped fish. - The sea anemone is tho connecting link between animal and vegetable life. The sea flower in quuatiun consists of a stalk five inches in diameter and eight iuches in length when extended. The stalk is crowned with a largo number of tentacles in a scries of circles, and the wholo foliated so as to resemble tho fine petals of a pink. In color it is a palo gold. Upon the slightest touch of the hand the flower draws in its tentacles, shuts its mouth and flattens down upon the rock. In the same tank thero aro several specimens of the yel lowish fleshy corals, or those which do not secrete a hard skeleton. New York Herald. am Sugar in Lumps. In answer to a correspondent who asks the difference between the sugar which is sold in apparently smooth cut lumps and other whito sugar, the lumps of which are somewhat rough on their surface, the New York Sun says: The difference is considerable, and the latter, which is pure loaf sugar, cut into lumps, always commands a higher price in tho wholesale market, and cannot be adulterated. It is called in the market "cut-loaf." The former quality of surar is what is known as "cubes." Tho cut-loaf su gar is made in lunips of fifty pounds out of cane sugar, then sawed into slabs, and these slabs are partially cut through and partially broke. It is easy to distinguish the marks of cutting and breaking on each lump. The cube sugar is made of soft sugar and pressed in molds, which gives the smooth ap pearance, and is suitable for shipment The cube sugar will sometimes on a sea voyage resume the consistency of the soft sugar, and the change of form is due to adulteration. The safest sugar for anyone to buy is pure loaf sugar, and it is much sweeter than any other. The principal sub stance osed in adulterating sugar is glucose, which is sugar made from va rious vegetable substances, chiefly grain. While glucose is sweet, it is easily detected oy the expert because it is not so sweet as cane sugar. It is, nevertheless, very extensively used to adulterate cane sugar and produce cheap sugars which are sold in the market ' Reputable dealers sell it as glucose, but there are many, dealers who sell glucose for sugar. The nature of the glucose is to make a close, sticky sugar; It does not produce grains, like cane. Lipport's Hoat Market, Smith Niilc of Main Sr., a few doora west of M.
