A CATERPILLAR LUNCH. I htbrlllnX tper'e ce of a Noted Africamn Explorer. Tihe cable ania.unccd list week that r M Mr. Dea:ne, one of the agnenits of the Stilngo Free SI:Le, had been killed in eleplhant charge while out iiuniting. 1 his gentleman was in comm:and of S the Stanley Falls .station when it was attacked two years ago toxt month by the Arabs. Oil his reireat fromn that station he had one of the most thr li fle ing experiences that ever befell a i white man in Afrie:,. to Before the station fell his nnamtmi stion had b~en al,ost entirely cxia:tmst o a3d nad the great.er part of It s force e. had scurried dowmn tihe river, leavlng lhim to his fate. In the darknuis ot the night Deano and his conmrade, D)lubois. with three or four I1ramsa sol,ue rs. stole away across from Stanley Falls and no:seleasly made their wva west ward along the river bank. It was not lefore )lubo s. sl pp ng upon a stone at the water's edge. fell into the rapid current anlid was drowned. Dea:lne E was left alone with his two black com. rades and thle prospect that they would escape was very slight. They pushed on all nmghtit but in the intense darkness thiey were able to make their way only a few miles through the thick iundergrowth. Thor ougmha tired out, they stopped at day st light for a short rest. T'lme rai which ;y. hail been falling al:l ni:ght ceased. and IDeanme took off iiha drencmhed garmentls to partially dry thet. While his clothes were haingng on the bushes shouts were slddenlly heard a few hundred feet behind ilth little party. 7e The Arabs had discovered their retreat and were in hot pursuit. They were so near that DIeanoe -,id hear the grass rattle as the enemy sprang as through it, rapidly fillowlng the muddy tracks of the fimgit ves. Deane h- ad just tLne to throw his clothes ;. over his arnt amnd start at full speed le through the bush, fllowed b; his liussa attendants. Talhy could nhear e. the shoults of the Arabs, who were on e- their tra I for hours, anti every nerve rt was strained to distance the pursuers. in At last the no seas behind them grew me fainter, and by noon it was ev.dent a that tihe enemy had groiwn wearv of tie chase. Then the hunted I tlle party stopped for a breathing spell. It was a woebegone anmd almost Ihopeless band of fugitives. In time mad race for life.every HanIsss had lost his gun. anld not a wealon of any sort was left in the party. One by one I)eane had dropped his garments and lie had nothing left except a small military cape, which he threw over his shouldl ers. In the midst of an African jungle he had not the slightest protection for h'i bleeding feet, and even tf he had saved h a boots he would not have dared to put them on, for the tracks s woulid have instantly revealed to any prowling Arab or hostile native that a white man was in the neighborhood. A cannibal tribe, with whom Deane himself had had a serious tight, lined the river below, and he dared not ao peal to them for sucoor. He was about three hundred m;les front the nearest white station at Bangula. All that could be done was to struggle down time river, through the dense bunh and forests, several miles Inland, avoiding all the tribes, except one or two that were known to be fri yl . sad living on whatever they cod pick up that t would afford nutrlme.N For four weeks bite castaway in Central Africa, at naked, and u weak with hunsge and fatigue, wan dered through the solitudes of the country. The nights were cold, but b the only covermng the fugitives had I' were dried leaves, whleh they heaped c over themselves as they lay down on a the hare earth under the trees. They found many wild grapes and some other fruits of the forest, but these alone would not g.ve them strength to keep up the hard march. An occasion- I al monkey or a bird would have peen a d delightful addition to their food sup- s. plies, but without guns they could not obtain game of any sort They did . what any one else would do when fight-. leg against starration. Mamy African tribes esteem fried ants as a great deli eacy. WbnueoVr our fagitives came to a prosperous colony of ants they laid i a suply. Then many eaterpillers b eromed the ath, andl these treasures d were eareflly stowed away in a cart ridge bohr. At diasnr-time tim party would blmd a fire, roast their ants andl i catetrpllarsr and disguise these solid tl visads as much as possible with month- t fule of grapes and other fr;tL It was b naything but palatable fool, but it kept life in their bodies, though the poor Isliows became so weak that they couakl travel only three or four miles a da last th esme to the Bakumna tribe, who live along the river, and the i fagitives thought they might safely re veal themselves to these people. Their conaidenee was not betrayed, and the it fugitives weren supplied with provisions I which very agreeably varied their cat. er-piller diet, Meanwhile the iangala b who deserted Deane at Staley Falls, had reached home in caone nd In formed Capt. Coquilhat of the unhap py plight of his brother oler. The eapta n at once started to the rtsue on a little steamer.

A Yankee Girl Tells a Yetth How to Call A "-Yankee Girl," who saw the in quiry of the western youth who is old enough to go and see the girls, ot I does not know how to act, has re- 1 speetfully and kindly replied, throughl the New England lHomestead, as fol lows: "When you think of oalling, walki up to the door and act as though you intended to ring the ball. Take a lir a hold of the bell, pull and ring It Ift the lady for whom the call is intended comes to the door, rnteco your hat, bow and say something. It dcosn't matter I what you say. It you've only managed the hat buisiness wit h grace. 'If, as you suspect, she I.kes yronl little, she will invite you in. If she does not, walk in; stop high to avoid stumbling over the door rug. There is nothing that ampses a lady more. than to see a gentleman stumble over a rug, and a Ilitle ripple of lauglhter is sure to follow his attempt to r.glht himself. Of course this puts to flight all his self-possession, m:skes hiam feel red and uneomfortable. So, as I said $ before, don't stumble, and above all don't neact as though ymou were afraid of a stumbling. "L'are your hat in the hall. Ihang : it on the hat rack if there is one. If I the rack is placed at the furthelr end of I the hall. so much the better. Don' t be in a hurry; walk ip to it leisurely and d spore of thIe hat carefully. Thi will give the lady the impression that you are used to that sort of thing, give you t me to recover your self-posses sion and think of something to say. As for the cane, I think you had better ai take that into the parlor with you. i You can keep off the Ipoodle with it. If there is anything that's aggravating.

But it is an old, true story that :a man must take a great deal more pains to succeed in rascality for a while than in respectability to the end of his days. With it small per centage of the troublea burglartakes he might become a succetful mnech anic. Stome years agno an exceeding ly bright and handy farmer in East Ointarior set up as counterfeiter, displaying wonderful ingenuity in do vising machinery and inventing al loys. Without the excitement ofper petrating fraud lhe had no disposi tion to cunltivate his mechanical talents. though they were of a sort to yield lun a large ileome and "ii fine position. The re Iports of crime are crowded with snuch inlstances. To set their wits ofguar dians of the hlaw seems an irresistible temptation to many who appear wit hout wits except when so engaged. i'erhapl we have all known individ unlls whose faculties seemed stmrength ened by danger, by the stress of mis fortune, or by crisis far out of the common. They rose to difficulty and were possessed by a strange joy in their displays of force, skill or in vention. It is conceivable that some 1 men become habitual criminals by discovering that their faculties are e brightened as to give plemsure in their exercise by the eonsdiousness I of runing tremendous risks. How else can one explain the strange con duct of himn who displays in erime Smuch ltore than the industry and intellectual ability that would, as he knows well, yield him t great deal more than crime does? But tlere may be truth in what the alienists say-that all deliberate criminalsn are essentially insane. Aa Imstsntamees NetalPremss;* The imaginative writer, like the in- t rentor.
