MYSTERY OF TWO BEINGS WHO
CROSSED THE NARRATOR'S PATH.

It was oa the' td of January, 1879,
that General Roberts left Bazar Fir
Ziarat to subdue the Khoet district an
unsophisticated, country where tho rev
rane bad hitherto been collected in cop
per, and up to this data the semblance
of the rupee hurt not been known.
Haw Fir Ziarat-ftbe shrine of a
thousand saints literally old men) was
hardly even a Tillage, and only the day
preceding some els or seven had been
added to the number of saints, ai a
batch of murderous marauders had been
executed, and dying in the faith, shout
ing the faimah and acknowledging
nothing but piety in their attempts on
infidel life, their corpses had doubtless
rendered their grarea sanctified ground,
and so added to the Ziarat in these
parts a holy grove, generally of olive,
to fell which is desecration.
As tho Tenth hussars spread cheerily
into order covering the advance, their
brhrht pouch belt buckles(the last glitter
left after even stirrups had been dulled)
sparkling in the bright sunlight as they
threaded among tho camel thorn sprin
kled over the plain, the writer diverged
from the advance, having o convey
with a small escort of cavalry and in
fantry a long train of some 900 empty
cornels ordered to the advance bane to
fill np with supplies. My way lay among
hills bordering the right banket the
Knrrum river, and I soon lost sight of
the force moving on Matoun and fin
ished the day's march without any ad
venture. On the 8d of January the in
cidents befell which I now seek to nar
rate. In a lonely valley a party of my Sikh
infantry brought before me a Pathan
prisoner, saying: "Here is a man who
has been caught concealing his anna. It
has been ordered- by General Roberts
that all such shall be dispatched. Hay
wc kill him?"
Now, this was a hard saying.
The young mnn appeared by his head
gar to be a Waziri, a not unfriendly
tribe, which, however, furnished not a
few lawless depredators. His only arm
was tho long Afghan knife, necessary
for his own protection perhaps, and in
the cold weather it appeared not unnat
ural that he should wrap himself in his
thin outer colored scarf, worn somewhat
after tho fashion of a plaid. His face
was handsome, open and fearless, but
such was the minn of all Afghans often
seen on the most cold blooded fiends.
I could not, however, though de
termined to fulfill the spirit of instruc
tions, at once hand, him over to the bay
onet, and, saying, "Ob, his knife is only
for harmless use or protection, " I took
it from him and drew it. It wosthickly
coated With fairly fresh blood.
For a moment I could have handed
him over to death, but reason told me
that this was no additional evidence of
murder. He might have slain a goat or
sheep, ho might have met an enemy in
fair nglit questions of coarse were use
less. Finally, with some misgivings as
to whether I was striotly obeying orders
aid amid tho scowls and murmurs of
the Sikhs, who were quite strange to toy
command, I gave tho young man bock
his knife and sent him on his way.
Ho left gracefully and courteously.
showing neither in his smiling face nor
in his elostio gait ono single sign of
guilt or fear, and soon has erect figure
was lost to my view over the brow of a
gome hours of march followed, and
tho care of massing tho long, unwieldy
line of camels in a column on each small
plain, before again filing the next pass,
a precaution necessary to enable my rear
guard to be within hail in case of attack
on so tempting and easy a prey, fully
ahsorbed me and drove the preceding in
cident clean from my bead.
Suddenly I became aware of a young
Pathan girl running beside my horse
and holding np to mo a silver ring set
with a turquoise. This seemed to me a
very unusual act from a Mussulman
and a Pathan, where seclusion is so
strictly the rule, and I had no idea as to
the meaning she wished to convey, my
Pushtoo being unoqnal to the dialect she
spoke, and indeed scanty enough at all
times. However, seeing that I was
meant to take the ring, I did so, the
girl, about 17, showing that she meant
I should take it fiom her. Even then
she made no effort to leave, and so,
imagining perhaps that she wanted mon
ey for some purpose, I offered her a few
rupees, which she refused petulantly.

behind mo and asked what it all meant.
but they only laughed unpleasantly, as
if to say, "What can a Mussulman and
a woman mean except what is contemp
tible?" so that, angry at their scorn and
possible misconceptions, I flung the girl
back her ring and bade her begone. She
left, muttering and apparently still anx
ioos to explain, but a troop of horsemen
now appeared, on the plain, and whirl
ing their long lances round their beads
cantered shouting toward na. The Sikh
infantry cloned their files and prepared
to receive them, and I went forward to
reronnoitcr them more closely.
They turned out to be a friendly "llr-
gab," or deputation, seeking General
Roberts, but this fresh incident drove
the last again from my thoughts, and

Before Ira LaMotte wore diamonds
and wrote "msnsirr r" after his name
incidents occurred that are anoro amus
ing in being related over cold bottles
than they were in transpiring. One lit-'
tie story be tells himself that runs in
this "way: l
when Ira became a Benedict, be was
less prosperous than hopeful. His visi
ble possessions consisted of a trunk, a
huge affair and useful, but solitary to
profound degree when considered as the
extent of his property. Bnt Ira knew a
thing or two, even though he had to re
sort to strategy to accomplish his pur
pose. He rented, a flat, a swell flat,
with all the accessories of high price
dom, and be and Mrs. LaMolte . and
the"tmnk took possession. They did it
in an unostentatious way, and the neigh
bors were none the wiser. It was all
right of course from one way of locking
at it, but neighbors can hardly be ex
pected to always look that one way; so
the new tenants kept on being unosten
tatious and exclusive. The trunk was
most useful - It did duty for chairs at
dinner time, for piano at singing time,
for divan at billing time, and for near
ly everything else. It was all a bit ir
regular of course, bnt the. best was
made of it. and Ira and Mrs. LaMotte
were as free from care as frcm the trou
bles of wealth.
One morning, however, Mrs. LaMotte
went ont. She only went to the ccrner,
but the wide awake wife of the landlord
the landlord lived in a flat just below
Ira's found the opportunity she had
impatiently been waiting f cr. She bided
her time until Mrs. LaMotte was on
the outer steps. Then, with bonnet and
cape, she started ont. Of course the la
dies met, and of course they had to chat
"How do you like tbc flat, Mrs. La
Motte?" asked the wide awako other.
"Very much, thank you," icily re
turned Mrs. LaMotte, for she knew Ehe
was caught and considered all sorts of
sharp things to say in reply.

CURIOUS MARRIAGE CUSTOMS.
Among; Dwsria of Andaman Iland Con-tnoUng-
Parties Climb a Traa.
Some of tho customs peculiar to
courtship and marriage among the race
oi dwarfs who inhabit J he Andaman is
land are, according to M. do Quatre
fages, who recently published a book
called "The Pygmies" about these
people, very peculiar. Not tho least re
markable of them is the procedure of
courtship. The young man who bos
made his choice addresses himself to the
parents, who never refuse, but send tho
girl into the forest, where, before day,
sho conceals herself. The young man
must find her.
If he dors not succeed, he must re
nounce all claim to ber. The wedding
ceremony of these people is equally
curious. M. Quatrcfages thus describes
it: "The two parties climb two flexible
trees growing near each other, which
on old man then makes to bend toward
each other. When the head of the man
touches the head of the girl, they are
Turning from Asia to Europe, we
find a very curious custom prevailing
in Kou mania. Among tho peasantry of
this country, when a girl attains a mar
riagcable ago her trousseau, which has
in the meanwhile been carefully woven,
spun and embroidered by her mother
and herself, is placed in a painted
When a young man thinks of asking
to be allowed to pcy his attentions to
the girl he is at liberty first to open the
box, which is always placed in a con
venient position, and examine the trons-
seau. If be is satisfied with the quantity
and quality of the; dowry, be makes
formal application for the girl's hand,
but if not he is quite et liberty to retire.
