.. OopyriKtit by Edgar W. Kye.
. , "So many conflicting stories anj now
afloat regarding the conduct of the rear
guard of the expeditidta which started
out last July for the relief of Emin Tute
wiler, who was supposed to be some
' where in the jungles -of interior Coney
Island or Far Rockaway, that I make
bold to write this defense of myself and
our party In order that history may, as
Emerson says, give us a fair show.
Early in .Tune we received permisfdon
from Mr. Joseph Cook, of Boston, to ex
plore the interior of Coney Island if we
would give it back again, and I began to
look about mo for a suitable company of
men to assist me. My first selection
consisted of Mr. Owen S. Kinney.'whose
middle initial sometimes adheres to bis
behindest name, but who is a loyal gen
.tleman wbomj clothes fit me. I owe him
much which I cannot ever repay, but he
agrees to let me off if I speak kindly of
him in my writings.
I was al so fortunate as to secure
the servii-es of Eli II. Jaggs, professor of
horsemanship at the Central Park Acade
my of Eqnestrianisin: aim the author of
"How to Overcome the Riding Habit;"
cloth fifty cents, paper two bits. He
was secnrotl partially because of his po
litical influence and also liecanse he is a
thorough connoisseur of spoopju.
He said he would go cheerfully. Be
sido these two I also invited Mr. Sawdorf
Astor-Plakv, of Lennox. He is not large
physically, but he has a brain which is
what might be railed a teeming brain.
When he is thinking real earnestly, if
you go quite close to his brain yon ran
hear it purr. I never saw such a brainy
cuss ns Iih is. Ilia thoughts sometimes
rumble like a telegraph pole, he thinks
so hard. I Rrltftt.il him liecanse I want
ed a bunch of picked men, and auy one
could see that he was a picked man to
just look at him. He seemed somehow
to have lnn'ii picked too soon. He took
a banjo with him.
That also was picked. Before we had
fairly started ho got even-thing itlunt
him to harmonize by having his iockets
My next thought was to procure the
needful food supply forourlong journey,
and obtain permission of my paper to
draw on it whenever I needed any
money. I also wrote an editorial re
garding my sagacity anil things, leaving
it to le printed on the day of my de
parture. I now legan to look alKiut me for fuxl
and whang whang, jingsang and color
ed beads to le used for pui'poses of
traffic. My first purchase consisted of a
small hamper of Iiockford cheese, which
is an anti-scorbutie and also insures ab
solute isolation to its happy possessor. 1
fully lielieve that the Iiockford cheese
giving it the Anglicized spelling, for I
am always kind to the IWkford and
Limburger cheeses, never laying a hand
on eyether of them otherwise than in
kindness I say that the Rockford
cheese, aside from the Excelsior stench
works east of Newark, has no living
rival. And I wonld also add that its
dead rivals would do well to look care
fully after their laurels. So I got a
hamper of this cheese with a little
damper in the top which I conld open
whenever I wanted a little solitude.
1 also procured some biltong and a small
mill to use in grinding mealie, against
the time when we should be beyond the
reach of Acker, Mcrrall fc Condifs de
livery wagons.. I took with me in my
inside pocket a small autograph album
which I puriosed getting Emin Tnte
wiler to write into as Kon as we had
relieved him, I said little to ray chief,
who had preceded me via Ocean Orove
and Cape May; but it was my idea while
he was thus leisurely scouting through
the game country and tnwring the
sources of the Passaic to quietly slip in
and relieve Emin Tutewiler myself, thns
compelling my chief to play the rear
guard act and give me an opportunity
by means of a stereopticon and lectnre
to do a good business with the Young
Men's Christian association on my re
turn. Mr. Astor-Plaico said that he would
advise me to procure two or three gun
bearers who were familiar with the in
terior and who had become acclimated.
I therefore secured two gun liearers for
my own use named Sahib Williams and
Congo Briggs. I got them of Sir George
Pullman, who said he did not want them
any more. One of them had lost a cake
of soap somewhere between Fort Wayne
and Chicago, ami although he had looked
very diligently over every inch of the
ground he could not find it, so Sir
George hiid to bounce him for the exam
ple and in order to preserve the disci
pline. Congo Briggs had thoughtlessly
shut up one of the director's children in
an upper lerth and forgotten about it
till ho got into Forty-second street,
where the parents discovered that they
were short one child.
Our start was auspicious. I had armed
myself with an elephant gun and an ex
press rifle, which with my hat box and
an oil stove were In the hands of my gun
bearers. We carried with ua a few
macadamized sea biscuit and some im
pervious pie in a shawl strap, in case we
should not find any pie trees in bearing
on our arrival in the interior. We
sailed on the 10th, and touched at Hell
Gate on tho same day, taking this way
out in order to head off Emin Tute
wiler, whom I had some fears might,
ria Newport and the steamer Pilgrim,
get home before the relief expedition got
The head of the expedition has stated in
one of his magazine articles that we fooled
away too much time at Far Rockaway,
and also took two-thirds of the spoopju
designated for the entire enterprise, so
that he ran short a littla annth nA
Bank, and waa thus compelled to stop
and go into camp for over a week until
four pagazis could be sent back for mort

reck. I know that we did not stay any
longer than necessary at Far Rockaway,
as some of our party had to get some
laundry work done there before we could
proceed to the Interior. One of our gun
bearers also became violently ill at that
place fiom eating the rind of a water
melon that had been prostrated by the
So far as the spoopju is concerned, we
took what Mr. Jaggs thought would be
necessary, thinking that the main expe
dition, perhaps, had made other arrange
ments. I also remained a day or two
longer at Far Rockaway than had at first
been intended, partly because I did not
know but that Emiu might lx disguised

On arriving at Coney Ltland I intended
to leave Mr. Owen S. Kinney in charge
of Manhattan Beach, Mr. Jaggs in charge
of Brighton Beach, and with Mr. Sawd
orf Astor-Plaice to push on along the low
flat country lying between Pemambnco
point and the West End, for thns I would
cut Emin off from other relief expedi
tions unless they should come in via the
iron steamboat or perdroska from Brook
lyn. We had only proceeded a little way to
the westward when one. of onr Wang
wana was taken with violent retchings
and paroxysms, caused, as I afterward
learned, by overeating the luscious but
unripe dingle dangle fruit of the island,
which grows in great abundance to the
southward and resembles our American
popcorn ball. I administered a box of
large navy blue pills made by a dealer
on Broadway whose name ami check 1
did not get in time for use in this report.
These pills are about the size of a brass
thimble, and I think are called the ne
plus ultra, or seek no further, pill. It is
by far the most faithful and painstaking
pill, I think, that I have ever used in my
African explorations. No matter how
far I would go into the interior this pill
was there, like my good angel, urging
me and cheering me to go still farther.
This delay, caused, by the illness of
Congo Briggs, necessitated onr return to
Brighton Beach, where I was also com
pelled to draw on our paper for more
doti. This consumed time and money,
but I felt confident that if I could reach
the West End before autumn with my
justly celebrated remedy I conld cer
tainly relieve Emin Tutewiler before the
main expedition got there.
My delay was also fortnnate, I mav
add, for during my stay I met the great
Aruwimi chief, Croker, who came to the
coast at this time. He is the head of the
powerful trilie of the Aruwimis which
dwells to the northward, and which gets
its name from a part of its war cry,
which is this:
"Aruwimi or AginmeV"
This is uttered in a strong, guttural
tone of voice, and serves to encourage
and uriito the trilm mneh more than
Conjunctio firmat, which is tho motto
of the Bnttermaks' nnion, of Orange
After a week's rest, during which our
supply of whang leather spighetti and
durable pie gave out, so that we were
obliged to resort to the hunting c;ise
oyster and the wall eyed clam, we pro
cured a wad of mealie, a jag of sioopja
and resumed our journey. We entered
the poorly ventilated jungle on the fol
lowing evening, and camped beneath a
huge axle tree, which was loaded with
Vienna brVail fruit. I must here men
tion that this whole country would lie
far more healthful if the jungles could
be better ventilated. As is well known,
the elephant and other noxious fauna
penetrate tho jungles and sleep there
nights, sometimes as high as three or
four in a lied. They get up in the morn
ing, and go away without doing their
chamberwork with any degree of care
or airing the jungle even, forgetting that
it must bo again occupied on the follow
ing night. As soon as the cannibals, of
Coney Island who live off each other are
shown the method of salvation and its
absolute freedom from duties and im
posts, I hope that philanthropists will
fall their attention to ventilation. Those
whomay have had chargeof elephants for
any length of time, and been thus com
pelled to room with them, wiI remem
ber with what paucity of diligence and
with what lavishness of neglect they
bathed their feet. This in their home
life gives the jungle an elephantine
flavor which is bound to keep many of
onr tropical missionary cafes in the back
ground for years.
We had a pretty tough journey over
tho entire trip, but made our trusty gun
bearers do all the work while we did the
best we could. We were sustained and
soothed during this trying ordeal by the
knowledge that we were doing a good
deed and also that there was nothing for
ns to do at home.
On the 2thof July the largest el.
phant I had ever seen hove in sight, and
in an hour's time we had struck his
spoor. I directed my trusty gun bearer
to get ready with the express rifle load
ed with double pointed tacks and barbed
w.i-e, also to load up the elephant gun,
as the animal seemed now ready to
charge, which in less time than it takes
me to write it he had done.
.1 was somewhat disappointed in the
power and extent of his charger, how
ever, as I remarked to Congo Briggs at
the time, for it was really a very reason
able charge indeed.
In a short time we had reached the
point where I was sure we would run
across tho spoor of Emin Tutewiler. I
began to inquire of the natives and to
look about me on every hand, but I
could get no clew of him whatever until
dark, when a native who came to my
tent with some tnlu, which he offered to
exchange for colored beads and a small
Bible which I was reading, gave me my
first news of Emin. He said, which 1
afterward found to le true, that Emin
had heard that he was Bhortly to get re
lieved, and so he took the 4 o'clock boat
The above is written in good faith, in
order that the public may understand
the true inwardness of this expedition,
and in order that my trusty fellow trav
elers, who paid their own expenses and
took their lives in one hand, as it were,
and their washing in the other, may
stand before the public in their true
lights, and not suffer the grave injustice
which others have Bought to thrust upon
them. Whilst we diil n t relieve Einin
Tutewiler, we had it there for him if he
chose to accept it. He c raid take it or
he could let it alone. We do not go
around coaxing people to be discovered
and relieved by us.1

snow peaks whose lofty summits rise far

1 am surprised at the number of persons
who travel on fool, so many women and
girls, English and German. They climb
the longest and steepest mountains dv

witnoui fatigue, and come tp to the hotel
as fresh ss a mountain blossom. The
luggage is sent on by mule or carriage
and tbey appear at the tabls d'hotel in
fresh muslin and laces, briglit faces with
the bloom of a peach. Some more deli
cate women ride over the mountain passes
in a chair carried by four me i. The chair
ia like a bier with seat and r ipe foot rest
with the four projecting bundles. How
the carriers can do it I can't understand,
up and down these sleep and stony moun
tain paths. I saw one chair come in at
Saint Nicholous 10 o'clock t night and
after a supper of coffee, bread and cheese,
the carriers started back the same night
for Xalden, eight miles over the hardest
and roughest road we have ridden. The
price of a chair over this course is only
sixteen francs, four francs (iignty cents)
to a man. There was an Er glishman on
foot, his wife in a chair and daughter on
a mule, and I saw this man give the four
carriers as a gratuity, no franc Ave

We go by mule to the great Mer de Glace,
the combined glaciers of Mt. Blanc and
other mountains. The path up is steep
ana oiten very stony with lively back
ward views of the valley of Cnamonix
and mountains in every diiection. Mt,
Blanc stares you in the face on the sum
mit of the plateau and a good hotel offers
refreshment. We cross the Mer de Glace
with a guide, about a mile wide, with im
mense fissures in the ice fifty- feet and
more in depth. One goes up and down

vast rocks lie everywhere, ot the glacier

grinding is ever going on today as for
ages past and the awful power of this vast
serpent of ice is overwhelming. The
mules can be sent around to the other

with just a footing cut in the lock for one
foot at a time, while clinging to an iron
rail fastened to the rock, passing frequent
and beautiful waterfalls and mountains

fissure and enormous bouldets of stone
which it carries on its icy bosom to the
valley below. After such an experience
the mules bring us safely to the hotel,
when the driver is joyously welcomed and
enter with profound thanksgiving.
Cnamonix is a small place in a lovely
alley with the finest views and excur
sions, a great many big hotels all fur
nished inelegant style, electric bells, etc.;
in fact all the hotels we have visited. even
in the lonely valley at Kandei stegg were
famished in the same way. The ride ia
the Dilligence, from Chamonix to Quaes
with five horses, is all down hill, finest
road and perfect scenery of ever changing
beauty, fields of grass and grain, fruit of
every kind, and a happy looking, though
hard working people, with tie Glacier
river even alongside the road singing its
peace of release from icy bonds.
From Cluses to Geneva by nil is with
out interest except the usual beauty of
valley and mountains with vines' and
fruits. Geneva, on the lovely Lake Le
man, is a beautiful city with its ancient
and modern quarter, fine hotels and
bright shops filled with every variety of
goods, especially wood carving In every
form of beauty . Fine steamers carry one
the entire length of the lake in four
hours, touching at Yevey, Lansanne and
other points of loveliness, including the
famous castle of Chillon at the upper end
of the lake, on an island, with its dun
geons below the water line, and water
three hundred feet deep just off the cas
tle foundations. Mt. Blanc is in full
view with its snowy dome of dazzling
whiteness, and no shores are more lovely
than those of Lake Leman. A twelve
hours ride by rail carries you to Paris,
where the air is as pure and fresh as in
early June with us, and the life C the
city is something never to be forgo'ten.
The churches, museums, parks and bou
levards are beyond anything in any city
of the world, to say nothing of the shops
where the whole stock f goods would
seem to be displayed on the sidewalk. I
don't wonder that women go wild over
Paris and its things of beauty and utility,
and prices are cheap enough to tempt one
to cheat their own country by smuggling
in everything tbey can buy and pay for.

Deafneta Can't b Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafnes is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will lw destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
wlncn is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh
