A Fight "With a Crocodile.
What a queer craft! I'm glad 1
haven't got to go up to Khartum in a
thing like that."
So spoke a boarded, brown-faced
English ofliccr standing upon tho bank
of she Upper Nile, close to the Arab
Village of Shcndy, midway betweon
Berber and Khartoum.
Certainly it was a "queer craft," and
he might well bo glad that ho had not
got to make a long voyage in it It was
a big, clumsy, flat-bottomed barge, al
most as broad as it was long, and
steered by a gaunt, half-clad Arab
with something that looked very much
like an overgrown wooden shovel. But
the rigging was more curious still. A
tall, bony native, standing bolt upright
upon tho deck, served as a mast, while
tho piece of coarse canvas which be
held up at full length in his out
stretched hands did duty for a sail.
This living mast was kept in its place
by two other men, one of whom clasped
it around the waist, while the other
held on its knees with all his might
To use living rigging is not always a
safe experiment, and in this case it
proved very unsafe indeed. A sudden
gust of wind took the sail aback, and
the Arab who was serving as mast for
it, and who had planted his feet upon
the two lower corners of the canvas,
in order to keep it stretched to its full
extent, found himself entangled in it
almost before he knew what bad hap
pened. Losing his balance, he fell
backward, and rolled over the edge ot
the boat into the water, dragging along
with him one of the two mon who had
been holding him up.
- The other man scrambled back into
the boat almost aa quickly as he had
tumbled out of it; but the mast-man was
not so lucky. It took him two or three
secoads to get rid of the canvas that
was hampering him, and those two or
three seconds made all the difference.
By the tinio ho bad got clear tho ferry
boat had drifted a good way down the
stream, the steersman having left his
post and run forward when he saw his
comrades fall overboard.
This 0 itself would havo mattered
little, for every Arab in the Nile valley
can swim like a duck. But while tho
struggling man was swimming with all
his might toward the boat, and the
steersman was working the boat's head
round to meet him, a new actor sud
denly appeared on tho scene, whose
coming made the affair look much more
No one had taken any particular no
tice of a long black log which was ly
ing on the edgo of a sand-bank a little
way out in the stream. But at the
splash made by the two Arabs as they
plunged overboard, the seeming log
made a sudden movement, displaying
as it did so the vast, scaly bulk, grin
ning teeth, and small, cunning, cruel
eye of a monstrous crocodile!
The hideous creature waddled down
into the river so clumsily thai any one
who bad been watching it would have
been startled by the nrrow-iike swift
ness of its course the moment it touched
the water. The poor Arab knew only
too well what was in store for him,
and made frantic eftorts to reach the
boat, which was now close at hand.
But the monster was too quick for him.
Gliding in between him and the ap
proaching barge, it spun around sud
denly anil darted right at him, opening
its terriblo jaws wide enough to show
two ranges of spiky teeth that might
have crushed a buffalo.
But just as all seemed over, ono of
the ferrymen took a Hying leap from
tiie side of the bgat and came plump
on to the crocodile's back. There he
stuck like a limpet, while the long,
Sharp jambeyah (dagger) in his right
hand dealt stab after stab Into the
monster's undefended side, just behind
Could the crocodile have spoken, he
would probably have cried out: "Foul
play! two against one!" As it was he
showed his disgust plainly enough by
his s.ivagu snoriitigs and the furious
lushir.gs of its ponderous tail, till, find
ing that its enemy was not to be shaken
oil, he plunged suddenly under the
water. Man and beast went down in
a whirling eddy, the ripples of which
were dark with blood.
A cry of dismay burst from the crowd
that had gathered upon tho bank, as
they saw the brave Arab disappear.
But all at once the water began to-,
heave and bubble ns if some fierce;
jtniggle was going on in the depths'
below, and then the Mussulman's lean, j
lark face rose to the surface, upon:
which, a moment later, tho crocodile's
mighty bulk floated limp and dead,',
dain by a mortal stab in the throat. ;'
"Aferin. ya habioi!" (Well done, my
friend) cried the Englishman, as the.
conqueror struggled ashore. "Here
are twenty piastres (fifty cents) for
you, if you can accept the gift of an
"No matter for that, effondi," (gen
tleman), replied the Arab, with a grin,
tying up the coins in the groasy waist
coast which was his only clothing.
"You may be an unbelievor, but your
money is true Mohammedan."
Tho Adventures of a Yellow Dog.
Cats are said to have nine lives, but
thero is a canine in Leadville that has
as remarkable an experience as any
feline that was ever worried, drowned,
shot or clubbed. It is a yellow cur be
longing to James Minton, living on
Fryer Hill. He raisod the dog and had
him something over threo years, dur
ing which time the brute has had both
hind legs broken by being run over by
a wagon, bus lost his tail through the
devilishness of mischievious boys, . has
been shot through the shoulder by a
nervous neighbor, while howling at the
moon, nnd, finally, only last week, fell
into a water hogshead about half full,
where he swam and floated for at least
six hours, estimating the time by that
which he was missing. When rescued
he was thoroughly exhausted, but is
now himself agaiu, with the exception
of a slight limp and an abbreviated
tail just as good and handsome as any
other yellow dog. Leadvi'.le Democrat.

UMBO BULLETIN; FRIDAY MQKNlNQ SEPTEMBER 19, 1884.
China at Home.
China is the country of long tresses
and short feet; a country where tea is
drank without milk or sugar, nnd
where two littlo ivory sticks, skillAilly
handled between the lingers and thumb,
replace tho fork and spoon; a country
where you call tho first man you meet
your elder brother; where to ask a
bootmaker his address it is necessary
to ask "what noble palace" he inhab
its; a country where the creditor has
the right to make any insolvent debtor
pay his bill with a piece of bis flesh,
and where the debtor by way of r
venge, hangs himself at his creditor's
door; a country where the son ruin?
himself to buy a collin for his deal
father, and, covered with a hempen
garment, walks backward as he fol
lows his sumptuous funeral; a country
where peoplo work for thoir rico in
stead of their bread, but which is ot
earth and not of lacquer-work and por
celain; and where, as in other coun
tries, tho husband loves his wife, and
the orange-colored mother loves her
It is "a country, moreover, whero the
bride attaches great Importance to the
personal appearance of the bridegroom,
and the bridegroom equal importance
to the moral qualities of the bride; and
the basis of many Chinese dramas, as
of dramas in other parts of the world,
is tho passion of love. Women have
been forbidden to appear on the stage
since the day when a celebrated actress
inspired the emperor with a fatal ca
price. The men, who undertake fe
male as well as male parts, play
with good expression, and uso a
super-abundance of gestures, some of
which, though derived from the obser
vation of reality, have at last acquired
a purely conventional value. An actor
who, pivoting on his left foot, makes a
circular movement with his right, is
understood to be getting on horseback.
To cut the air with a riding-whip Is to
indicate, through the connection of
cause with effect, a galloping pace.
The exhibition of pieces of gold cloth
with wheels painted on them has al
most an arbitrary meaning, and signi
fies that the emperor is coming.
Etiquette is rigidly observed. A
young girl walking in the street must
not turn her head round; nor at homo
is she allowed to glance slyly at visitors. .
She is to remember, moreover, that
girls who are always laughing and
talking are not esteemed, and that vir
tuous women havo been honored from
the earliest times. The philosopher
Mendzo grieved when ho saw his moth
er break her shuttle; tho woman Tsoun
threw herself on a sword in order to
save her husband's life; tho mother of
Ao, being so poor that she could not
buy writing materials, taught her son
to read by tracing characters in tho
sand. Women should be able to read,
write, and use the counting machine,
so as to be in a position to direct a
household. They should read books of
piety and stories of morality in action,
while avoiding love poetry, songs, and
anecdotos. Women should be reserved;
and they are cruelly enjoined never to
occupy themselves with other people's
affairs. Men ought never to . talk of
domestic matters, while women should
never talk of anything else. When a
visitor is In the drawing-room, the lady
of the house should not be heard rais
ing her voice In the kitchen. Women
are not to paint thoir faces and wear
striking colors, for the insufficient rea
son that if they do men will look at
them. Young women, as well as
young men, are to bo dutiful to their
parents, and always in a good humor,
even when their father and mother are
China is, in short, a country of
primitive manners and primitive mor
als, very simple, tranquil, and pictur
Dr. R. F. Campbell, of Cleveland,
has explained to the Ilcra'd, of that
?ity, how he saved the life of Mr..
Frawley, a brakeman on the Lake
Shore and Michigan Southern Road.;
Frawley was burned so badly by tho1
explosion of an oil car at Angola, N.
Y., last March, that tho skin of his'
back, of both legs, and of both thighsi
was destroyed to the extent of 390
square inches. Tho afflicted surface
was so large, especially on tho left
limb that if allowed to heal without'
6kin-grafting, tho muscles would con
tract and cripple the patient for life in
all probability. Before performing the
operation of grafting new skin the
surgeon carefully prepared tho wounds
by cutting out all the burned parts and
dead skin. Thirty days from the time
of the accident the wounds were healed
sufficiently to allow the application of
bits of skin ranging in sizo from a pin
head to half a grain of wheat Tho
bits were held fast by gutta-percha tis
sue, a substance like mucilage and
which was covered with a dressing of
Sauze and absorbent cotton. "This
ressingAvas changed every day. In
three days the grafted skin took root
and extended rapidly from bit to bit
At first the new skin was pink, but
changed to the color of natural cuti
cle. The bits were taken from healthy
parts of the patient's body, and four,
five or six other persons. To obtain
the bits the skin was lifted with forceps
and cut off with scissors. This pro
cess is far more painful to the heroic
person operated upon than is the oper
ation of grafting to tho patient. The
grafting is an easy process, but great
care must be exercised in dressing tho
parts. Tho grafted skin is not so'elas
tic as the natural growth, because the
cellular tissue has been burned away,
but one is just as good as the other for
all practical purposes. The surgeon
found the under part of a good hoalthy
corn would produce skin growth of a
normal character. Dr. Campbell said
skin-grafting was first practiced in this
country in 1871, and it is more com
mon than ever now. Some surgeons
press tho bits under the granules, but
equal results will be . obtained, in his
experience, by merely laying the bits
between the granules on the surface.
Bits of skin from a colored person
when grafted retain their natural color.
So successful was Dr. dump bell with
Frawley that the railroad company en
gaged hiin to operate on Charles An
derson, of Angola, who recently had
his back burned by a railroad accident

A Hat tie or Ants.
A number of persons were standing
in front of the Citv Hall, Denver, tho
other afternoon. A largo number of
ants were noticed running about on the
stops and ground, constantly aug
mented by numbers from unknown
quarters. Examination revealed the
fact that the ants were winged and
were tumbling from the air. Further
investigation showed that the ants
were of two species, and that a battle
begun in the air was raginj on the
ground. One of the species of the
waning Insects was Jiirgo and red,
with wings the sizo of a house fly; the
other was a small red ant, with a
black bead and small wings. They
were in superior numbers and attacked
their enemies by twos, fours and scores.
Several balls of the ferocious warriors
when separated showed as many as
thirty small "tuts on one large one.
Here and thero could be seen single
combats, tho small ants in every easo
victorious. Those that were clinchod
iu the air remained cliuched on the
ground until one or tho other was van
quished and dead.
But as a geueral thing they fell to
the ground and at once prepared for
battle. Each side was under leaders,
who massed their, forces and marched
them with military precision upon the
foe. Skirmish lines wero thrown out
The lines advanced, retreated, advanc
ed again, and then the battle becarao
geueral. The rules of cfvilized war
fare were observed for a while, but be
fore the tight was over it was a go-as-you
pleaso affair. The small ants
wore in the majority but their oppo
nents wero giants" compared with
them and they crushed tho pigmies in
their strong mandibles as an alligator
would a gnat
For at least half an hour the battle
ttied. The ground was thick with
tho dead and the dying, the latter be
ing dispatched wherever found. At
last the giants were routed. They fled
ignominiously, pursued by the pigmies,
who slaughtered them by scores whilo
in full retreat, some living, others run
ning to escape with their livos. The
visitors acted as if they wanted to
crow, and probably did, but if they
made any noise tho spectators were
not aware of it, if the vanquished
A Foolish Fraud.
"You would be surprised." said a
postoflio olllcial recently, "if you could
know how .frequently stamps are used
a second or even a third time. And
what is tho most surprising thing about
it is there is no profit for the person us
ing a stamp the sucond time, as it re
quires more tlian two cents' worth of
ujip.ication aud ingenuity to clean a
siituip; but the loss to the Government
is very considerable 1 would be con
tent to receive a sum equivalent to that
stolen from tlte department every year,

cutk by long practice become vejy
familiar with the appearance of good
aud bad stamps. Tnoy acquire per
haps tho samo degree of ability in the
duivution of tho irregularities as do
ciens who haudlo money, but in large
.offices there nro so ninny loiters, and
the work ot cancelling is of necessity
so rapid that very fow chanccs are of
fered for detection. It is only when
letters are deposited in offices whero
tho mail receipts are small' that thero
is uny considerable danger of detec
tion of using stamps a second time.
But tho uso cannot be profitable, pack
ages or heavy-weight letters having
sufficiently large postage stamps ou
.them to justify their cleansing for a
second uso aro subject to a somewhat
rigid inspnotlon and fraud can be de

smaller f tamps a second time is large'
