Germany Is meeting with some diffi culty In Its colony In southwest Af rica, one of tho nntlvo tribes, tho Ovampos, being strongly opposed to Teuton rule. Sud-west, ns tho colony Is generally culled, Is a country of magnificent distances (Its area Is about 280.000 square miles), anil much of It Is practically desert. Along tho wholo coast (some S00 miles) anil for about 100 miles Inland It Is a howling wilderness first of sand nnd then of stones. Within this belt the country Im proves somewhat, hut tho continued drouths nro n sore trial to farmers. The fcrtllo areas are generally dried up. Tho country In tho southern half of tho colony Is covered with scrub, nnd wide stretches of undulating coun try ulternato with high ridges. It Is n country ndapted to guerrilla war faro. Thoro nro soveral tribes living in tho territory Herreros, Damaras, Ovampos, Hottentots nnd Bushmen. Tho Herreros, Damaras nnd Ovampos are of the sntne blood ns the Zulus, Basutos and Capo Kaffirs. Tho two former, who llvo chiefly In tho central zone, have given llttlo troublo to the Gormnns, but tho Ovampos, who llvo in the far north, nro still uncon querod, and nro defiant nnd Insolent to tho Germans, who for several years past have planned expeditions which so far hnvo had to bo post poned. The Ovnmpos, If fully mus tered, could show 14.000 fighting men, some of thorn armed with rifles, and tho oxpedltlon which Germany Is now Sho ceased to sigh or bother as tho strains of "Illawnthn" Came In rippling repetition through tho perfuine-ladcned nlr, And forgot her hold defender, who wns lighting tho Pretender, While her fancy rcwovo wnrp and woof of romance then nnd thero.

The Hottentots arc of various clans, scatterrd about, chiefly in tho south ern half of the colony. Thoy nro usually small nnd yellow skinned, and their wool grows In patches. Their language consists largely ot clicks nnd gurgles and Is not pleasant to listen to. They nro lazy, treacherous, thiev ish and untruthful. They work when thoy cannot help It, nnd when there Is n chnucc ot hunting, oft they go, nnd leave their employer In tho lurch. They will llvo where n white man would starve, nnd And water whore ho would die of thirst. Their cunning Is proverbial, nnd ns trackers of gamo they rnnk high. Thoy hnvo never been thoroughly thrashed and arc not well disposed townrd tho Gormans. Tho pure Bushmen nro probably tho lowest typo of human being In tho world. Queer llttlo, undersized, nerv ously grinning blacks, they ennnot bo tnmed, and now nro approaching ex tinction. They live now, as they al ways did, widely scattered. Their language Is practically a succession of clicks, nnd as a rule their intellects ennnot grasp any number higher than five. Anything beyond that Is "a great many." Tho Bushman has apparently no moral sense. Ho will llvo whero oven a Hottentot would stnrve, and ns a hunter ho Is hard to bent. He will fol low a buck until it drops from ex haustion, nnd his poisoned arrows nro things to bo avoided. The Straying Desire V Homo people thero bo who never cnu rre Any viiluu In uucht thnt they liavo, But what others have got and what they hnvo not Js that which thoy eagerly crnve. If their neighbors havo less they aro fain to confens That rlchvH are only u enro; Uut If others hnvo more there's a terri ble ronr Uecauso It's so very unfair. If a lnm hus a bonnet with feathers upon It Tho mnlil with tho flower hnt weeps; If a luil has a marble some comrade will wnrble. "Oh, come, let's play marbles for keeps." Too oft It's tho same with the bountiful duine Who stares nt tho world through her lorgnou; WEDDING RITES OF 8AVAGES. Very Simple Ceremonies Constitute a Marriage Among Them. Th innrrlago ceremonies of many savages nro of tho slmplost pogslbla 'escrlptlon. In some places, Indeed, says tho Leisure Hour, ceremony Is almost ontlrely dlspnnsed with. Thoro nro no woddlug rites in Onhomoy, "ox copt whero tho king confers tho wife," tho InterforenCH of royalty rendering it necessary for tho brldo to present her future lord with a glass of rum. Brnndy-drlnklng Is tho principal feat ure of tho coromony in some Brazil ian trlbos. Amongst tho Nnvajos, It Is only roqulred nf tho brldo nnd bride groom to eat mnlze-puddlng from the enmo platter. In tho Hill tribes of North Aracnn, marriage U described as "a wimple contract unaccompanied by ceremony," nnd It is an equally In formal nffftlr In many other tribes. At n Khaaln wedding, "the couple about to bo married merely alt together In one soat. and receive their friends, to whom they give a dinner or feast." Thoy havo a rather mixed ceremony amongst the Gouds and Korkus, con olstlng of "oatlnK together, tying the garments together, dnnclng together round a pole, being half-drowned to gothor by a douche of water, nud tho Interchange of rlnga."

Bridge of Fish. Tho snlmon nro so thick in tho mouth ot Mill creek Just below tho government fishery racks, says a nod ding dispatch to tho San Frnnclsco Pnll, thnt thoy nro soon right up to tho surfneo of tho wnter, nnd so close ly packed togcthor thnt a person look Ing upon tho mass would feel that ho could cross tho crook dry 'shod by stopping on tno nacks of tho fish as thoy appear ubovo tho wator. They aro crowded up by tho mass which extends down to tho bottom of tho stream. At tho flshory the flsh can bo secur ed In greater quantities thnn they can bo handled, nnd the hatchery Is run ning nt Its full capnoity. Some days as many as l.ooo.ooo eggs are secured. People from the southern part of tho founty go to the hatchery for tho fish, which are given awny after the spawn ing operation. Many millions of young salmon will be hatohed this season, ai operations have ! -m under way for some time and may continue for some tlino 'onger If the rlvor dooa not rise too high.
