DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA.
JIow Kngland Is Forcing a Large Trad
The Slnve Traffic.
American schemes for the extension
of trade with Africa have not met with
that degrco of success which the most
eanguiue had hoped for. Not many
years apo a prominent New York mer
chant became quite enthusiastic re
epectinjj the prospects of Liberia,
Bending out sugar mills, encouraging
coffee culture, and aiding In the depor
latlon of American negroes, but the
BO-called "republic" now exists scarce
ly in name. In like manner a stoam
Bhip project which for a time engaged
the fostering interest of several New
York gentlemen phil'anthropically in
clined never took a tangible form and
passed out of mind. But a line of
mailing vessels from New York to Li
beria has been maintained, and Ameri
can exports of manufactured cotton to
Africa through various channels form
a considerable item. Meanwhile En
gland is building up a flourishing
trade on both sides of the continent,
on the west coast and at Zanzibar.
Trade with the colony of Lagos for the
year 1887 amounted to $1,500,000, and
it is calculated that the entire trade of
great Britain with the west coast last
year amounted to the approximate
value of $25, 000, 000 of imports and
$13,000,000 of exports, comparing well
with some portions of India. At Zan
zibar, up to the recent breaking out of
hostilities, the whole coast. was a con
tinuous lino of British Indian trading
stations, and trading increased rapidly
to $10,000,000, the greater part of this
being in the hands of British subjects.
"Unfortunately," as we are told by
Archbishop Farrar, "this property at
tracted tho greed of certain German
adventurers," who made "bogus
treaties," claimed vast tracts of coun
try, and proceeded to take possession
despite tho remonstrances of the Sul
tan. Furthermore, according to the
authority just quoted, "the whole
trado of tho coast is in the hands of
some 10,000 British subjects from In
dia, including tho ivory trade, copra.
gum opal, india rubbor, hide and grain
trades. These British Indians have
lent large sums of money to the Arab
ivory caravans. They have also in
invested their profits in mortgages on
the houses and plantations of the
Arabs, feeling quito secure under the
shadow of English justice. Tho Brit
ish Indians have 500,000 of floating
capital employed at this time in tho
ivory trade in the far interior, and
unless somo decisive measures are un
dertaken by tho Pnglish Government
this largo sum must inevitably be
lost." England appears to have be
come inextricably involved by joining
in an agreement with Germany to
maintain a blockade "to put down tho
slavo trade," a feat somewhat difficult
of accomplishment where every Afri
can and Arab trader is a slaveholder
either in will or deed. Clearly enough,
it would now appear the "development
of Africa," whatever this may mean,
has received a check from which there
will bo tardy recovery. It is surmised,
however, that traders in Zanzibar,
while postponing indefinitely tho real
ization of hopes for the commercial
subjugation of the interior lnko re
gions accessible from this point may
give a new impetus to tho Congo Free
State and to efforts to penetrate trop
ical Africa through the Soudan. The

Once upon a time an old man called
his th -ce sons to him in the dusk of
fi?e evening, and in a. .altering voice
paid to them: "My boys, in a little
while yon will have no father. I am
standing on tho shore of tho river of

and to tho one making tho wisest

Como to mo to-morrow evening at this

tho folio-wing evening tho three sons
assembled before their father. "Reg

son, "1 pondered long that 1 might

Theophilus and murmured in a voice

loudly the cymbals may clash and the
laughter ring, parents are always sad
when a fondly-chorished daughter goes
off to stay; and Achsah, the daughter of
Caleb, kuows that now is the time to ask
almost any thing she wonts of her father.
Tt sferr.s th it Caleb, the goou old man,
had given as a wedding present to his
d:ii2-hter a niece of lund that was mount

1 The fact
Is, that as Caleb, the father, gave Achsah,
the .laughter, a south land, so God gives
ii His world. I am very thaukful He

On Bowling tlreen. New York, there is
a house where Talleyrand used to go. He
ivas a favorite man. All the world knew
jjtro, and he had wealth almost unlimited,
vet at the close of life he says: "Behold,
ei"hty-three years have passed without
anypractical result, save fatigue of body
nnd fatigiMJ of mind, great discourage
ment for the future and great disgust for

south land," and it slopes off toward de
serts of sorrows; and the prayer which
Achsah made to her father Caleb, we
make this day to our Father Ood: "Thou
hast given me a south land; give me also
springs of water. And he gave them the
npper springs, and the nether springs.'
Blessed be God I We have more ad van
tapes given us than we can really appre
ciate. We have spiritual blessings or
fered us in this world which I shall call
the nether springs, and glories in the
world to come which I shall call the up
per springs. Where shall I find wonh
enough threaded with light to set forth
the pleasures of religiou? David, unable
to describe it in words, played it on

earth so happy as a really Christian life,
I do net mean a sham Christian life, but
a real Christian life. Where there is a
thorn there is a whole garland of roses
"Where there is one groan there are three

Lis pi. tin table blooms into the King's

though he u&y be carried out iu nine

field the chariots of Christ will come

the boulevards of Heaven.
1 bless Christ for the present satisfac
tion of religion. It makes a man all right
with reference to the past; it makes a
man. all right with reference to the fut-
nre. on these nether springs or com
fort! They are perennial. The founda
tion of God staudeth sure having this
seal: "The Lord knoweth them that are
His." "The mountains shall depart and
the hills be retrieved, but my kindness
shall not depart from thee, neither
shall the covenant of my peace
bo removed, saith the Lord, who
hath mercy upon them." Oh,
cluster of diamonds set in burnished
gold! Oh, nether springs of comfort
bursting through all the valleys of trial
and tribulation ! When yon see, you of
the world, what satisfaction there Is on
earth in religlo, do you not tlrirst after
it as the daughter of Caleb thirsted alter
the water springs? It is no stagnant
pond, scummed over with malaria, but
springs of water leaping from the Rock
of Ages? Take up one cup of that spring
water, and across the top of tho chalice
will float the delicate shadows or tne
heavenly wall, the yellow of jasper, the
green of emerald, the blue of sardonyx,
the fire of iacinth.
I wish I could make you understand the
joy religion is tb some of us. It makes a
man happy while he lives, and glad when
he dies. With two feet upon a chair and
bursting with dropsies, I heard an old
man in the poor house cry out: "Bless
the Lord, oh my soul !" I looked around
and said: "What has this man got to
thank God for!"' It makes the laujo man
leap like the hart, and the dumb sing.
They say that the old Puritan religion is
a juiceless and joyless religion; but I re
member reading of Dr. Goodwin, the
celebrated Puritan, who in his last
moments said: "Is this dying? Why, my
bow abides in strength 1 I am swallowed
up in God I" "Her ways are ways of
pleasantness, and all her paths are
peace." Oh, yon have been trying to
satisfy' yours elves with the "south land"
of this world, do you not feel that you
would this morning like to have access
to the nether springs of spiritual com
fort? Would you not like to have Jesus
Christ bend over your cradle and bless
your table, and heal youf wounds, and
strew flowers of consolation all up and
down the graves of your dead?
Tis religion that can give
Sweetest pleasures while we live;
'Tis religion can supply
Sweetest comfort when we die.
But I have something better to tell yon,
suggested by tlas text. It seems that old
father Caleb on the wedding day of his
daughter wanted to make her just as hap
py as possible. Though Othniel was tak
en her away, and his heart was almost
broken because she was going, yet he
gives her a "south land;" not only that,
but the upper springs. O God, my Fa
ther, I thank Thee that Thou hast given m
a "south land" in this world, and the
nether springs of spiritual comfort in this
world; but, more than all, I thank Thee
for the upper springs iu Heaven. It
is very fortunato we can not see
Heaven until wo get into it Ob,
Christian man, if you could see what a
place it is we would never get you back
again to the office or store or shop, and
the duties you ought to perform would go
neglected. I am glad 1 shall not see that
world until I enter it. Suppose we were
allowed to go on an excursion Into that
good land with the idea of returning.
When we got there, and heard the song,
and looked at their raptured faces, and
mingled in the supernal society, we would
cry out: "Let ns stay! We are coming
here anyhow. Why take the trouble of
going back to that old world? AVe are
here now; let us stay." And it would
take angelic violence to put us out of that
world, if we once got there.
But as people who can not afford to pay
for an entertainment sometimes come
around it and look through the door ajar,
or through the opening in the fence, so
we come and look through the crevices in
that good land which God has provided
for us. We can just catch a gllmpsa of
We come near enough to hear the
rumbling of the eternal orchestra, though
not near euough to know who blows the
cornet or who finders the harp. My soul
preads out both wings and claps them in
riumph at the thought of those upper
prings. One of them breaKs rrom oe-
neath the throne; another breaks forth
from beneath the altar of the temple; an
other at the door of "the house of many
mansions." Upper springs of gladness!
Upper springs of li,'ht! Upper springs of
love! It is no fancy of mine, "ine iiamo
which is in tho midst of the throne shall
lead them to living fountains of waters."
Oh, Saviour Divine, roll m upon our
souls one of those anticipated raptures I
P-nr around the roots of the parched
tonguo ouo drop of that liquid life. Toss
before our visioa those fountains or uod,
rainbowed with eternal victory. Hear it.
They are never sick there; not so much
as a headache, or twinge rheumatic, or
thrust neuralgia. The inhabitant never
says: "1 obi sick." iney are never
tired there. Flight to farthest world
is only tho play of a holiday. They
never sin there. It is as easy for them to
be holy as it is for us to sin. They never
die there. You niiRht go through all the
outskirts of the great city and find not
one place where the group--! was broken
for a grave. The evesight of the redeemed
is never olurred witfl tears, lnere is
health in every cheek. There is spring in
every foot. There n majesty on every
brow. There is joy ia every heart. There
is hosanna ou every lip. How they must
pity us as they look over and down and
see us. and soy: -roor tilings away
down in that world." And when some
Christian is hurled into a fatal acci
dent, they cry: "Good! ce is com
ing!" And when we stand around the
couch of some loved one, whose strength
is going away, and we shake our heads
forebodingly, they cry. "l am giaa ne is
worse; he has been down there long
enough. There, he is dead! Come home!
Come home'." Oh, if we could only get
our ideas about that future world un
twisted, our thought of transfer from
here to there would be as pleasant to us
as it was to a little child that tves dying.
Sho said: "Papa, when will I go homv?"
And he said: "To-day, Florence." "To

I wish I could stimulate you wita these
thoughts, oh Christian man, to the high--est
possible exhilaration. The day of
your deliverance is coming, is coming.
It is rollkig ou with the shiuing wheels of
the day, and the jet wheels of the. night.

Why let your tongue be consumed with

and the upper springs, comfort here and

Let me tell you, my dear brother, that

CARE OF BROOMS.
What Kind to Ilnjr and How to Wh an4
Clean Tlienl.
Soma one. referring to the broom, face
tiously calls it the scepter of the housewife,
and, whatever truth there may be in thl
appellation, certain it is that the broom
stands at the head of housekeeping tools
There la nothing will take its place
Brushes and carpet-sweepers are good
things to use In a house, but they only do a
oertain part of the sweeping, and, although
pood for e very-day brushing, cau never per
liion Uia work as well as the broom, that
makes itself familiar with every hole and
corner of tie house. The housewife can
get along without brushes, eta, but no
matter how many of the latter she may
have In the house, the broom can never be
spared.
When buying a broom always get as good
a one as possible, for a poor one is a bad in
vestment. Choose one of medium weight,
for a heavy or light broom is alike tiresome,
the one for its weight and tho other for tho
pressure that must be borne upon it, if the
sweeping is to be done properly. The brush
end should be of a green tinge and of me
dium firmness, that it will require some
pressure to bend it. See that the straw i
composing it are long, and go each one to
the handle of the broom, whjere they are
securely fastened. If there are short straws
between the bottom and handle fastened
under either of the wires on the brush, al
though they may look firm, the broom will
not wear for any length of time.
An old-fashioned way of keeping th
straws together is to sew around the brush
from a little above the center to within faux
or five inches at the bottom, a flannel cloth,
or the leg of an old sock is still better,
drawn down over the brush. This keep
the straws in place, and they do not break
off as easily as if left plain. This covering
can be taken off and washed when neces
sary. Wash the kitchen broom in warm soap
ouds once a week, but for the ones used for
parlor and other rooms once a month U
usually sufficient. Aside from cleaning tho
straws, the washing prevents them becom
ing too dry, which is a frequent cause of
breaking off. Hang the broom up always,
when it can be done, by screwing into the
top a brass ring, or boring a hole through
the handle of tho top with a gimlet, and
running a string through. Don't let tho
broom stand in a corner with bush end
down, or It will soon be out of shape,
bat If it mast be on the floor at all, stand it
with brush end up.
Always have, at tho least, two brooms In
the house, one for the bare floor and one for
the carpets. AH good housewives know
that a broom used for the kitchen is not fit
to be used In sweeping the parlor, neither
is a broom used on auv bare boards tit for
tho carpets. In a large house tt saves many
6tcps If there Is a broom on each landing.

they deem highly ornamental. And another
singular mutilation U maxio among mem Dy
taking off. In infancy, the little finger of the
left hand, at the second Joint. In ancient
Persia, an aquiline nose was often thought
worthy of the crown; but the Sumatra
mother carefully flattens the nose of her
daughter. Among some of the savage tribes
of Oregon, and also in humatra and Arra
oan. continual pressure is applied to the
skull in ordsr to flatten it, and thus giro it
a new beauty.
The modern Persians have a strong aver
slon to red hair; the Turks, on the con
trary, are warm admirers of it In China,
small, round eyes are liked, and the girls
are continually plucking their eytibiows
that they may be thin and long. But the
great beauty of a Chinese lady is her feet,
whion. In childhood, are so compressed by
bandages as effectually to prevent ant
further Increase In size. The four smallei
toes are turned under the foot, to tho sole
of which they firmly adhere, and tho pooi
girl not nly endures much pain, but often
becomes a cripple for life. Another mark
of beauty consists in finger-nails so long that
casings of hamboo are neceBary to preserve
them from Injury. An African beauty must
havo smalt eyes, thick lips, a largo, flat
nose, and a skin beautifully black.
In New Guinea the nose is perforated, and
a large piece of wood or bone Inserted. In
Ouiana'the lips are pierced with thorns, ths
heads being inside tho mouth, and th
points resting on the chin. N. Y. Ledger.
NATURAL RELIGION.

In the course of a lecture on tho "Sacred
Book of tha East," at Sheffield, Trot Max

true humanity, came near to that roglon
which Christ tanght to His disciples. And
yet that very religion wss being attacked
on all sides, and one ot oar most eloquent
Bishops had said that the unbelief of tho
day was not only aggressrve, but almost
omnipresent. The principal reason for this
wss the neglect of our foundations, tho dis
regard of our own bookless religion, the al
most disdain of natural religion. Even
Bishops would curl theirilp and toss their
heads when spoken to of that natural nnd
universal religion which existed before tho
advent of our historical religions, and with
out which all historical religion would
have been as impossible as poetry
without language. Tho heart and mind
and soul cf nnan were tho same

A BAR OF IRON.
tt Vine When Converted Into Horse
thoOJ, Pen Knives and Watch 8prlnrs.
I ha ve a curious, calculating friend,
who is fond of startling his comrades
with immense possibilities in the way
of figures. The other night he threw
ua all into a violent perspiration by
propounding the proposition as to how
much wages and national profit could
be derived from tho raw material of a
bar of iron, valise 20 shillings. I am
thankful to say that none of us made
asses of ourselves by attempting any
wild guesses, but solemnly smoked on.
It would indeed have been cruel to an
ticipate the conjurer's solution, which
we knew was already worked out. So
presently, after a slight, very slight,
pretense at mental calculation, our
faiend and philosopher said that if
wtorked into horseshoes the value o!
tle bar of iron is turned from 20 intc
40 shillings. Well, eo great shakes
tl&. We breathed again, and began
to tancy that there wasn't so verj
much in the conundrum, after all.
B it, continued our friend and phi
losopher, if made into needles the bar
of inn is turned from 1 into 70;
meaning 69 to the credit of labor and
national profit of some kind or other
earned. Then we began to gasp, and
a few of tthe more devoted disciples ol
the cause of home industry contem
plated thefcr domestic, consumption
of needles from the patriotic point
of view. .tlowever, more was to
come. Made into the blades of
pen-knives, its transpired that the bar
of iron, value 1 pound, becomes worth
657! Was tlaere a man among us
that did not thenceforth regard his
familiar pocketcompanion as a symbol
of industry.the stign and token of labor,
the eloquent example of the majesty
of labor.
But our mathematical minded com
rade had not yet made his point. All
the foregoing was but as airy trifles to
play with. When we were all wondering
and admiring ourselves as the happy
owners of pen-knives, he suddenly
sprung on us his last surprise. If the
bar of iron be made into balance
springs of watches it is turned from a
value of 1 to a value of 50,000. No
less a sum that 49,000, perorated our
friend and philosopher, is gained by
the nation in wages and in profit
earned by the vAorkers, the capitalists.
the distributors, the owners of the
houses and shops in which they are
made and sold, and by the hordes en
gaged in the buiidinsr thereof; in the
rates and taxes paid by every man,
woman and child direatly or indirectly
concerned in this enormpus wage
earning capacity of our liutle bar of
iron, value 20s. to begin wifih. to say
nothing of all the other trades and in
dustries that find employment through
the customers whom this national
earning of 19,000 brings into ex
istence. London Fair Trade.
READY IN ANSWER.
Some of the liright Kepartees of "Camp-
Meeting" John Allen.
"Camp-meeting" John Allan was al
ways ready with a retort for friend or
foe, sometimes scalhing. and always
humorous. After his conversion he
met an old minister who plied him
with searching questions of the genu
ineness of his experience, and the
j'oung man complained of the severity
of this catechism.
"If the tree bo well-rooted," said
the minister, "it will not be harmed if
we shake it."
"But." said the convert, "the Mas
ter said to Ilis disciples: 'Feed my
lambs,' not 'Go and shake them,1 "
At another time when Mr. AUen was
about to begin his sermon in a nevi
place, a former pastor said to him
"Are you a long preacher?"
"Five feet, seven inches," was the
immediate reply.
At a meeting of ministers a Baptist
was invited to give his views on the
subject of Methodist economy, and at
once rose, saying that, although there
were many excellent things in Meth
odism, it seemed to him to have toe
much machinery.
Mr. Allen was on his feet in a mo
ment. "The Methodist Church may have
more machinery than the Baptist," he
replied, "but it doesn't require as
much water to run it."
When the question of prohibition
was under general disVission, a red
faced toper one day said to Mr. Allen:
"I shall vote against jtou on this ques
tion." "Your face voted before you epoke,"
was the quick reply.
A lawyer of opposite politics said to
him, about the same time: "Mr. Allen,
on which side are you going to voter
for I shall vote against you."
"On the right side," was the answer.
"Which side is yours?"
One morninc at a Methodist camp-
meeting a young man arose, and said.
pompously; "I do not believe in sing
ing, 'Oh, to be nothing.' I propose to
be something, and I want people to
know it."
Brother Allen instantly rose and re
peated the verses:
'If a man think himself to be some
thing when he is nothing, he deceiv
eth himself. But let very man prove
his own work, and then thall he have
rejoicing in himself alone, and not in
another. "
The question of ambition was not
disenssed further that day. Youth'e

The Tyranny of Dress-makers.
A prominent woman of this city de
clares that she Is ready to organize a
society for the protection of women
from the tyranny of dress-makers.
Just think of it." she exclaims, "in
the great majority of cases we can't
have a dress made as we want it for
love or money. The dress-maker
Bcornfully ignores our desires, and
makes it to suit herself. 'I won't
make your gown that way,' said my
dress-maker the other day in answer
to a suggestion of mine. 'It is not
the style now.1 -But,' I protested. it
is the most becoming style for me.'
No difference,' replied the autocrat,
1 know best how it should be made.1
Now, if a man should go to his tailor
and order a suit to be made in the
Continental style, it would be made
so. no matter what the tailor privately
thought of his customer's tatto. But
the dress-maker treats her customer
as a child and ignores her wishes en
tirely. Then, too, a dress-maker will
solemnly promise to make a costume
for a certain price, and in three cases
out of five will calmly charge one
third more. It is high time for wom
en to kick against this tyranny and
teach dress-makers to do business in a
businesslike wav." N. Y. Tribune.

Early Americans.
Simplicity in their jnode of living was the
marked characteristic of the 'early settlers
of America.
Every thing which pertained to them was
plain and unostentatious
The food which they ate was frugally
served and of the substantial kind.
Their clothing was home-spun and the
moccasins which covered their feet ere a
home product, being made from the hide of
animals and ornamented with beads after
the Indian fashion.
Their homes were simplicity itself, con
sisting of roughly hewn logs and homo made
shingles the whole constituting the old
Log-Cabin home of frontier life.
Yet those were model homes.
Tho wives and mothers were well versed
in the art of all that pertained to house
wifery. Conspicuous in the early home was tho
striking figure of the old grandmother.
Hot only was she tho adviser in social af
fairs but sho was the medical adviser and
prescriber for tho sick. Often were her
hands engaged ia the preparation of somo
healing potion or remedy for tho relief of
those in ill-health. Fully versed in all the
bountiful supplies contained in the grand
store-house of Nature, she wisely knew' how
to utilize the curative properties contained
in certain roots and herbs and accordingly
she transformed taein into certain remedial
agents, which have made the old Log Cabin
famous for all time to come.
Conscious of the great value of some of
those old time home cures a successful ef
fort has been made to re-discover the lost
secret of their preparation, and, coupled
with all the4mprovement which human in
genuity and progress Buggests, they are
now widely known under the name of War
ner's Log Cabin Remedies, the most promi
nent being Log Cabin sarsaparilla and Log
Cabin coughand consumption cure.
The suffering publio has been quick to
recognize and appreciate their true value
aadthe manufacturers are daily in receipt
of much praise for tho re-discovery and re
vival of these old time remedies against
sickness and disease.
To tho old Log Cabin home, however, Is
justly due the praise for all the good Which
may, thereby, be effected.
VALUE OF PATIENCE.
A Qaallly Necessary to Success in Impor
tant Matters.
It is the humility of patience which ei
oroises all mere obstinacy, and transforms
silont endurance from a process of ex
haustion a mere wasta of strength Into
a power that feeds us with new life and
impresses on ns new character. Where is
there a great national career that, has not
been built upon the qualities which are es
sential to patience? Perhapi the French
have evinced less capacity for patience
than any other equally great people; but
oonsider the marvelous root of pationoa In
the Norman, the Breton, the Alsatian ele
ments of the French characters'; and if
Paris has represented a central impatience,
has not Paris ruined almost ai often as
she bad deHghtel France? In aU the
other great nations of the world, the raw
materials of patience are tho most notable
characteristics of the national character.
For example, among the Jews, tho Ro
mans, the English, the Germans and
Slavs, wo say tho raw material of patience,
for tho higher kind of patience ia far too
lofty as well as lowly a virtue to be widely
diffused through any people. Even among
the Jews, whose character in its more
ideal form appears to have been .specially
Intended to illustrate this great virtue,
the raw materials of it far oftcner degen
erated into mere doggedness than rose into
tlat transcendent spiritual quality by
which men win the'r souls. London Spec
