Menellk of Abyssinia is a man of dark compexlon, grizzled whiskers and beard, a pleasant smile and a very determined jaw. The general expression is amiable and intelligent and confirms the general opinion that he is the most liberal-minded and progressive, man in his dominion. He is evidently not given up to effem inate luxury, and the nearest way to his heart is said to be through the latest Invention in military weapons. He has thoroughly subjugated the entire coun try and turned It from a mass of petty tribes and chieftains to a united and pow erful country, in which he holds undis puted away. The name of Menelik commands re spect to the uttermost end of his wide dominions, and hot a leaf falls without his consent. His great aim has bean to get his country well armed and ammu nitioned, and of war supplies of ail sorts he is said to have a goodly supply stored in the Interior. ; . .. : American ' Posters In London.
