TRICKED THE SAVAGE.
The Explorers Forced Him to Lsai
THm to WaUr.
A party of explorers, four in num
ber, -were traveling across the sandy
plains of Western Australia. They had
been struggling on for weeks and
were now greatly In need of water.
Their two camels had not had any
water to drink for nearly a fortnight.
After a time they came to a deserted
camp hidden among some trees.
While they were looking at the stOl
smoldering campflres they were star
tled by seme' dreadful yells, and a
shower of spears, thrown by a n em
ber of black, savages, came flying
This made the travelers so angry
that they rushed after the blacks, who
fled In aU directions. After a stern
chase they found one ef the savages
op a tree. As he would not come
down, one of the travelers climbed the
tree after him.
Presently a branch of the tree gave
way, and they both came tumbling
down, but without hurting themselves
The travelers asked the blaek man
where they could find some water, but
he would not say.
Then they tried to get friendly with
Mm and gave him some food. But;
although he enjoyed the "food, he
would not tell them where water was
to be found.
Then one of them had an Idea.
He took some tinned, meat, mixed
Into It a handful of salt and gave it to
the hungry savage. The Mack soon
cleared It up and seemed to enjoy it,
much to the amusement of the travel
era. Then they sat down and waited.
In about an hour the savage began
to get fidgety and wasted to leave
them, but they would not let him
go. Presently be began to wall: "Wa
Jumping up, he ran to the densest
part of the scrub, followed by the

That Is the way the spring was dis
covered. A HENRY CLAY STORY.
Fate ef the Resolution Instructing Him
How to Vote.
Adlal Stevenson In "Something of
Men I Have Known," commenting on
Henry' Clay, tells this anecdote:
Possibly since the foundation of the
government no statesman has been so
completely Idolized by his friends and
party as was Henry Clay. Words are
meaningless when the attempt Is made J
to express toe idolatry oi the Whigs
of his own state for their great chief
tain. For a lifetime he knew no rival
His wish was law to his followers.
In the realm of party leadership a
greater than he hath not appeared. At
bis last defeat for the presidency
strong men wept bitter tears. When
bis star set it was felt to be the sig
nal for the dissolution of the great
party of which be was the founder.
In words , worthy to be recalled, "when
the tidings came like wailing over the
state- that Harry Percy's spur was
cold the chivalrous felt somehow the
world had grown commonplace."
The following Incident along the line
Indicated may be considered charac
teristic While Mr. Clay was a sena
tor a resolution, In accordance with a
some time custom, was Introduced
into the Kentucky house of represent
atives instructing the senators from
that state to rote in favor of a certain
bill then pending in congress. The
resolution was In the act of passing
without opposition when a hitherto
sliest member from one of the moon
tain counties, springing to his feet,
.exclaimed. "Mr. Speaker, am I to un
derstand that this legislature is under
taking to tell Henry Clay bow to
voteT v The speaker answered that
such was the purport ef the resolution.
At which the member from the moon
tains, throwing up his arms, exclaim
ed, "Great heaven r and sank Into bis
seat. It Is needless to add that the
resolution was lmmedlatsly rejected

ing of .the village ' board President
