GOT GOOD WATER.
What Mr. Buckner Iid For Unfor
One Form of Practical .Missionary Work Tun
nelled and Refreshing Floods
A venerable looking old gentleman,
with a wife leaning on his arm, trod
the decks of the brig Galilee as she lay
at anchor in Mission bay last evening.
He was the Rev. W. G. Buckner, who
had just returned from two years' mis
sionary service in Pitcairn Island, says
the San Francisco Chronicle of August
23d. Pitcairn Island is a small speck
on the Pacific ocean, about a mile and
a half in diameter and containing
about 135 inhabitants, all told. Not a
wide field for missionary effort: yet
Mr. Buckner is well satisfied with the
result of his efforts. His principal
achievement was in furnishing the na
tives with an abundance of clear, cold,
Previous to his visit the people of the
island were compelled to drink warm
and stagnant rain water, months old at
some seasons of the year. The stuff
had quenched their thirst through so
many generations that they had be
come accustomed to regard it as re
freshing. It was not until Mr. Buck
ner arrived and. Moses like, struck a
rock from which a flood gushed out,
that they knew what good water really
Mr. Buckner formerly conducted the
Seventh-Dav Adventist Church of
Stockton, and was sent down to the
Island by the Oakland Adventists. On
the outward trip two years ago he was
very sick. Arriving at Pitcairn. his
first request was for a glass of fresh
water. He had become so tired of the
ship's stale drink that he could hardly
swallow it. and on the last few days
of the voyage had been kept alive by
the hope that on reaching land he
would have a chance to get a cool,
fresh drink. What was his horror
when the natives hastened to him with
a cup of the nastiest stuff he had ever
"Rain water is bad enough.-' said Mr.
Buckner. relating his experience, "but
this was old rainwater. Probably it
was three months old. and originally it
had been collected from a thahed
roof. 1 would rather have drank fair
water with a heavy charge of lobelia
in it than the stuff they poured into me.
Immediately I grew stronger I began
to explore the little mountainous island
to try to discover a spring, but my
search was unavailing. The natives ex
plained to me that there was a wet
.spring up on the side of the mountain,
which ran only in the rainy season,
but in the dry season they had only
the water they stored in casks filled
from their roofs when it was raining.
Later, however. I became somewhat
acquainted with the traditions of the
"An old native one day in conversa
tion told me that years and years ago
the people of the island were supplied
with the best of water by a stream that
came out of the hillside, but which had
beeen filled up by a landslide. I got him
to tell me all he knew about the loca
tion of the stream, thinking if it ran
there once it must be still running.
One day with a party of natives I be
gan tunneling into the side of the
mountain at a point indicated by the
old sage, and after going only about
twenty feet, to my profound surprise
and gratification a great volume of the
clearest, coldest water you ever drank
shot forth with great force. The stream
has every evidence of being perpetual.
The land slide had so packed the earth
in about its old mouth that it had been
compelled to change its. course.
"I sent to Oakland here for more
pipes, and ire confined the water and
led it down into the little town. Now
the people are healthier and happier
than they have been for years and
The people of Pitcairn Island. Mr.
Buckner asserts, are the best he ever
met. They are spiritually minded, and
the students in the Adventist boarding
school recently built to accommodate
forty are making excellent progress.
The Galilee was forty days coming
up from the city oi Papeete. Tahiti.
The length of the trip was principally
cue to calms and light winds. The brig
experienced no rough weather. Cap
tain Dinamore sighted the Hawaiian
Commercial Company's brig Lurline on
August 3d in latitude 26 deg. 20 min.
north. longitude 154 deg 50 min. west.
She reported light winds.
MARKETING HUMAN FLESH.
The plain of Ubangi, now the bone
of contention between France and the
Kongo State, is the home of confirmed
cannibals, who eat no meat excepting
that of man. They will not eat beef
or veal, but human flesh, seasoned with
salt and pepper, is their greatest del
icacy, and as often as they can afford
it they purchase slaves of almost any
age and sex. According to recent in
formation, the French missionary,
Allaire, succeeded not long ago in res
cuing 74 young slaves from these can
nibals, anl escaped with them aboard
the steamer Lion to the orphanage of
the mission house. Allaire found these
slaves exhibited in one of the markets
like cattle. He stated that these hu
man being were not only sold as a
whole, but even in parts. If anybody
had not money enough to buy an entire
slave he would choose a portion, say
an arm or leg, the seller marking the
piece sold off with white chalk. The
next comer would buy another part of
the same unfortunate slave, and so on
until the entire body was sold. When
the head was cut off the purchasers
received the portion marked down for
them upon the spot. The custom is
popular through the entire district, and
Allaire estimates that annually at least
25,000 human beings are disposed of in
this way. Ex.
Special English Traits.
The intellectual specialty of the Eng
lish, as we should contend, is their im
patience of abstract ideas, their inabili
ty to believe that because an idea is
sound they are. therefore, bound, even
when it is inconvenient, to push it to
its logical result. They insist on self
government, but are quite content to
tolerate monarchy and aristocracy. They
hold to religious liberty as a dogma,
but tax all landlords indifferently to
Bnpport an established church. They
believe in the equality of citizens and
tolerate the most astounding differences
in the amount of voting power which
is assigned to each, so that a Londoner
has scarcely a third of the power to in
fluence laws possessed by an Arcadian
or man of Kilkenny.
They swear by the franchise as the
sheet anchor of liberty, but do not fret,
if they get liberty, because the fran
chise is a restricted one. Every man
with US is in the national ideal "free
to sav the thins he will," but when he
has said it he coin a under very strict
laws, indeed, intended to provide that
what is said shall not bo libelous or
blasphemous or improper. Colonel Iu
gersoll, the American apostle of disbe
lief, would cn this side of the water
have passed half his life in prison.
Paul KeT'8 Tower.
It is saddening for the patriotic tour
ist after he has gaz d with reverence at
the towers of old Christ church to be
told that he is not seeing the ordinal
windows from which Paul Revere nnng
out his lanterns, but a copy, the real
tower having I e n blown down in the
great gale oi 1804. However, there are
plenty of genuine relics inside where
the vast majority of Btton never goes.
There are still the old deep window
seats, the balcony surrounding the
church, with its supporting pillars and
upper arches; the top "Slaves' gallery,"
and the antique pews. The bottom of
the ancient pulpit of hourglass shape is
left us, but the tt p was given away by
the church officials in 1S20. The clock
under the rail has told of the flight of
the man with the scythe for 150 years;
the "Yin srar Bible," prayer books, and
silver communion s rvice bearing the
royal arms weie gifts from King George
IIinl73.'l; the huge christening basin
came from a parishioner in 1730. The
marble bust of Washington against the
wall was the earliest memorial erected
to the Father of His Country, having
been placed in position but ten years
after his death. Loston Traveller.
The JUarget Lecribed Snake.
Speke, in his narrative of the journey
to the sonrce of the Nile, describes the
largest snake that has ever been seen
by man. "I shuddered, " he says, "as I
looked upon the effect of his tremendous
dy ing sm ngth. For yards around where
ho lay irvs, bushes and saplings in
fa everything ex pt full grown trees
were exit clean off, as if they had bun
trimmed with an immense scythe. The
monster, when measured, v. as 51 it or
2 inches in exwme length, while
around the thicl si rtioi of its body
the girth u a: iy 3 feet. "
A World Out of Joint.
A poor devil t. lis his latest misadven
ture: "I had had nothing to at f r two
days. In despair I threw myself into
the Seine. A sailor fishes me out. Well,
tin y gave $5 to my rescuer and nothing
to me. Figaro.

things than they perform. They are
