Cheyno avers that human flesh forms their chief articleof diet. The doctor observes: -It is ditHcult to specu late on the reflections of the victim, as he livc9 from day to day in constant expec tation of his fate." There- is reason to believe that this expectation does not produce the agonizing terror which most EuroiH?an8 under the circumstances would exierienco. In tho time not very far distant, when cannibalism prevailed in New Zealand, it was occasionally, at all events, tho custom of a chief when starting on a war cxpeilition to take with him, fastened together, a number of men whom he already held as cap tives; these men served as a living larder. Each of them knew that his turn to bo killed and eaten would come; nevertheless with the certainty of this doom lieforo him he pnnook of each of his fellows whose death preceded his own; and dipt. Wilkes, in his account of his exploring expedition, stated that King Thekaiubeau appropriated one of the small islands of the Fiji group as a human preserve. Every man imprisoned there knew that he would ultimately serve as a food for his majesty, and such alike were the loyalty and indifference as to death of these victims that, when questioned by Capt. Wilkes as to their feelings on tho matter, they expressed a kind of acquiescence in their fate, and used words to tho effect that it was quite proper that the king should be thus pro vided for. Westminister Review. Evolution ot the Colored Race. The negro is changing m appearance end losing some of the birthmarks pecul iar to the African race. The now gen eration is showing the effects of a higher culture. Es)e:ially is this noticeable in the towns where Contact with ihe whites shows Its effect.

Among the females, long hair or that peculiar woolly appearance, hangs in long braids or curls down their hacks. Aquiline noses and smaller mouths with thinner lips are the rule. For years, and in - fact ever since their freedom, tho negresses have en deavored to do away with theshori kinky hair bestowed upon them by their ances tors. Much of their spare change is in vested in various tonics and invigorators, and the long attention and care bestowed npou it is shown in their descendants. The South Georgia negro is an evidence of evolution, the survival of the fittest. Atlanta Constitution. To Vrrvent "Black Eyes."
