THE WHITE MAN'S FETISH.
As Interesting Experience in the Career of Mr. H. M. Stanley. Mr. Stftnlcy tolls ft rlinrnot.-rkt'o Bhiry of tho way in which ho e-iiined Iho respect mid fear of mi important tribo who positively refused his expedition A pn.ssiv. As tlio chief, nfier nngry rn fusnis, was nbout to lcavo, tho following proAi runted comedy was played for hh iicnelit : "While standinvr nonr tho font door, for a moment irresolute, ho cuught s'ght of the largo Chinese gong sus pended to a cross-bar supported by two rked poles. ' 'What is this?' he asked, pointing to t,he gong. " 'It is fetish,1 I answered, sonten- tioilsly. "His young son, Knjcli, who was much moro acute than bis father, whis pered to hitu hi.s belief that it was a kind of bell, upon which Ngalycma cried out: ' 'Hula Matari, strike this; let mo lteur it.' " 'O, Ngalyema, I dare not; it is tho war fetish ! ' " " 'No, no.' said ho, impatiently. 'Roat it, Pula Matari, that I ruay hear the sound.' w 'I d.iie not, Ngalyema. It is the signal for war; it is the fetish that calls up arnuid men; it would bo too bad.' " 'No, no, no ! I tell you to strike. Strike it, Bula Matari;' and ho stamped on tin ground with childish impatienco. " Well, then' taking tho beater in my hand 'remember, I told you it was a bad fetish a fetish for war;' and as I lifted tho beater high with uplifted band, I asked again: 'Shall I strike now? ' " 'Strike str'ke it, I toll you!' "With all my force 1 struck tho gong; tho loud bell-liko tone- sounding in tho silence causud by the bushed, concen trated attontion of all upon the scene, was startling iu tho extreme, but as the rapid strokes wero applied vigorously, tho continued sounds seem to them like thunder. They had not recovered from tho first shock of astonishment when t)e forms of men wero seen bounding over the gunwale of tho 'En Avanl' right over their heads, and war-whooping in their ears. From my tent, and from the gorge behind theni. a stream of fratit'c infuriates emerged as though from the earth. The store tent was violently agitated, aud finally collapsed, and a yelling crowd of denionaio mad men sprang out ono after another, pered to him hi.s belief that, it was a kind of bell, upon which Ntralvomn every one apparently madder than his neighbor. Iho listless, sleepy-eyed stragglers burst out into a perfect, frenzy of action. From under tho mats in the huts there streamed into view such a frantic mob of armed men. that to tho panic-struck natives the sky aud tho earth seemed to bo contributing to tho continually iHcreasing number of death dealing warriors. Every native present, would-be friend and would-be foe, lost his sens 's completely. Tho seated warriors forgot their guns and fled be fore this strange deluire and awful scene. The ammunition bearers threw their gourds away some were broken, and the unwder and slims wero KP.nttnroil over the grouud; and as Ngalyema was standm.? nara v.ed with fear, and with his faculties benumbed. I seized him hv tlie arm, and said softly to him: " 'He not afraid, Ngalyema. Remem ber Bui a Matari is your brother. Stand behind me; 1 will protect you." "The Zanz;baris wero now a yelling crowd in front of me, calling out taunt ingly and menacingly: " 'Ha. ha. Ngalyema! You cftine to tifXht Bula Matari, Ngalyema! Where are yoisr warriors, Ngalyema't" "There could not bo a bettor repre sentation of relentless, bloodthirsty fury than that which was shown by these amateur black actors iu the suddenly improvised scene. Their assumod frenzy wa-s tho next thing to reality. Hid I not been iu tho secret 1 also should have been duped; while tho valor with which I defended mv poor brother, who with his two hamls grasped me round The waist, danood from side to side to .void furious strokos from the wild ey.nl men, while young Enjeli clung bohin'l his father and followed his moveim nt.s. reminded me of the long forgottti; play of 'hen and chickens.' '"Save me, Bula Matari; do not let them hurt me! I did not mean any thing,' cried Ngalyema. " 'Hold hard. Ngalyema! I cried Keep fist hold of me; I will defend v m, never fear. Come ouo, come all! Ila, ha!' si to. "But the camp was almost emptied of our visitors, much of tho ammunition was left behind, the guns wero strewn over the ground, and the play was we'd acted. " 'Enough, boys; fall into line;' and Silence' was cried out by Susi and his brother captains; and the obedient, well trained fellows fell into lino at 'Shoulder arms' with all tho precision of military veterans. Then, as Niralyeina hail allowed his bands to fall down by his side in mute nurprisoai this other trans formation scene, I took hold of his two Uiands, and said, with an assuring smile: "'Well, Ngalyema, what do you uow tt.'iinkof the white man's fetishr' " 'Ah, 1 was wot afraiit was IP See, all my people aro run a-vay! Ay me, such braves! (July Enjeli and Oanchu left with me! But tell me, .Bula Matari. wtere did all these people ,come from?' " 'Ah, that is the bad fetk h I told you of! Do you want to see any more? Coit-e, I will strike, the gong aga-'n, aud the next scene may perhaps be inor wonoertui stil! What!' he shrieked, while ho laid his hand upon my arm. 'No, no; don't touch it. Ay, verily, that must bo v bad fetish,' shaking his head at thi round, innocent face of the gong. From Mr. Stantey't A'ctv Book. The Rising Generation.

In Which Most Everything is Ground and the Gospel is Preached. j t On be old County rond loading from J sunton t. iNi'w HiHirord, nhout three, miliM from Taunton preen, nt tho ho.nl I Tf a lurpj pond, stands a Imilding whoso history is ho poeulinr and whoso uses am so ninny that it c.vi properly ho classed among the woiiiIts of th old colony. It was erected about fifty yflars np) by Josiah King for a fork works. A few joars afterward it was sold to William Pierce, who now owns it. In appoaranee it is no moro pecu liar than the ordinary run of country saw-mills. Its ao: rests lightly upon it, and, barring accidents, it is liKely torn mam a landmark for nt least tifty years to como. Ito history, told by one who lives near it, is as follows: "On tho lower floor of the building Br" lur rooms, in unu is anm-inui. ln "'"- machinery for sawing and split ting wood and cider-making, and tlm t.hinl is used for a church and for holding various k;nds of entertain ments. Grain is brought hero from miles around and ground into meal for 'fodder' and cako-making. On any day during the lato fall you will sen half a dozen old farmers gathered about discussing things in general, ami wa;ting for their liltlo grist to bo cround. Meal made from corn of their own raising is thought far iuperior to any that cm be bought at the stors. "I asked an old man one dav why lie did not use b ilted m 'al. 'I've used meal of my own and father's r.tts'n' for over sixty year' an' it's good enough V rue. I don't b'live. in s' many new fangled notions just got ip t' git money out uv us poor farmers. ' Of course hi! must have his clumsy joke on the cod: 'I c'n bolt my own meal fast enuf when 'ts made into cakes.' "In the early fall tho old mill is ke.pt running n glit and dav making cider. Hundreds of cart louli of appl-a are ground up and the juice s piee.ed out. An upright barrel with one head out stands always full of the fermented jnice and a cup near by invites everv ono to help himself. One dav a small boy wandered in. lie could not reach over tho top of ihfi barrel to tho cider, so he made an inclined plane of a board anil crawled up on it. lie reached down to dip a cupl'ul of the coveted lipi'd. The board t:p;n'dup an 1 the young man we it in hea 1 Ih'sr. Luckily some ono heard the spla-.li ami ni-he 1 into the room just in time to save tho youth from a emery grave, l liis hoy lias now grown up to be nn active temperance worker. Oi.Ier-drinking parties are often held here and tho person who drinks the most, is voted tho champion. 1 once .saw a voting mail drink ten glasses in rapid succession. hen this part of the mill is not in use for c'der making wood is sawe,i and split here, and the same old farmers who bring their own corn to have it ground to save money will bring a load of wood and have it re-iu cd to the proper size for stove-burning. Years aotlrs part of the ni'll was used for sawing box boards and shindies, and more recently as a furniture factory. "In all tho years thn old mill has running mere lias tioen but ono accident. ne day the mill was sawin shingles, when a young man with a scarf about his neck came in. lie got too near tho .shafting, and it caught h;m bv the scarf and began to thriw him around and around. Before the mill could be stoppi'd his boots and stock ings were torn from his feet in siir -ds, and four of his ribs and an arm were broken, "The room used as a church is such as the old Puritans worshiped in. Ex cept in ruiiLu, inner and midwinter meetings are held here regularly Sun day evenings and on week day ings fairs, festivals and 'sewing circles' often make merry in this room. Not infrequently .in winter a dance draws the voung people to the old m il. "t di- tiiicl ly remcn'iei' one evening prayer and praise meeting that I at tended here. The minister was an old man and very near-sighted. In the course of the evening ho begun to . cough, and not being able to control it I he asked for some one to fetch him a I glass of water. It was early in the fall, i in cider-making time, and in the second i room beyond stoo I th.- full barrel and I a ghiss near it. A young seape i grace quickly responded to tho 1e.p1e.st of the m'nistT. but instead of bringing water he tilled th with cider, and w th a sober face took it up ta the preacher. The audience discovered the trick and readied for handkerchiefs. Tho unsuspecting old gent buna 1 raised tho glass 10 his lips, anil, without stopping to tas'e or smell, swallowed th" wlio'e of it. Such a look of horror as came over his fii"e when ho realized the trick I will not attempt to descriho. The audience smiled aud tittered, but the minisier immediately regained Lis composure aud said not a word. "Ono of tho most pa'het;c scenes I ever witnessed was the funeral of a little child in the church-room of the old 111 11. Tiio parents were poor, hard working people, and the dead baby was the only oaf. God had given thtim.

One Woman's Perversity—Haw She Managed Her Husband. I On the boat going up the river the other day was a -couple of whom everybody soon took notice. It was plain enough that they had had n row, and that the wife was mad as a vet hen. When she had bikeu a seat the husband walked up and down and glowered at everybody and seemed to mur mur threats of vengeance. On the deck, sitting by himself, was a rcd-shirted, hig tisted giant of u chap about forty years of aire. Presently the woman gathered up her parcel and walked over and shook his hand and sat down beside him and began a cheerful chau explaining, however: "My husband is terribly jealous of mc, and 1 want to bother him. " "All right, inarm." repli st old Hercules. "Just chatter and chin to your heart's con tent, and 111 larf and larf and ship my leg where the applause should c une in."
