Tho author of the mueh-talked-of "Flashlight from the Jungle" declare that In a few year equatorial East Africa will be as devoid of elephant, lions, giraffe, rhinoceroses and other Jungle big game as the United State now Is. During 'the ten years he spent In that region th wild elephant dwindled from thousand to tens. Mr. Schilling refer to th case of the late Dr. Kolb, a German who came out to British Cast Africa In connection with a Utopian undertaking called "Freeland," and who, when his po litical scheme became Impossible, applied himself to the reckless slaughter of the big game of British Africa. In the course of two or three year he had slain, for no useful purpose whatever, YJ) rhinoceroses (a companion killed 10 more), each on being a far more Interest ing mammal than himself. At the end of his career of slaughter a rhinoceros killed him perhaps appropriately. The Chapter entitled "The Mind of Ani mals" contains some Interesting observa tions. A young rhinoceros which the author captured and forwarded to Berlin "attached himself to me In a very few week and got to distinguish quite cleany between the large number of men who came Into touch with him, bearing himself quite differently with different Individuals, just as he still singles ine out from all the thousands who approach hint now In the gardens In Berlin. 'Many other animals In this distant black country were to us a real source of en joyment aod consolation. Take, for exam ple, my young elephant, who loved me with childlike simplicity, till I unfortunately lost him for want of a foster mother; also my tame baboon, who used to be almost mad with joy when he saw me, a mere speck on the horizon, returning to camp from one of my excursion hi sight Is in finitely keener than ours. "From earliest times we have heard tell of an unusually wise bird that our ances tors nicknamed the "philosopher.' This Is the marabou-stork, specimens of which I have coma across whose wisdom and fond ness for human companionship would scarcely be credited. . y' ... "Stork and marabous, which perhaps have lived a man's lifetime or more in the distant veldt, have attached themselves to me In the friendliest manner, albeit caught after many difficulties and by strategy. A specimen, well on in years, which I brought With ma to Berlin, still singles me put from all other visitors by peculiar marks of af fection. "Of course. H mean a hard struggle and it Is not easy to win the friendship of such old and peculiarly - obstinate birds. For, weeks and months one must feed, them by force with pieces of meat before they make up their minds to feed themselves. "One must tend , them oneself, wait on them ' constantly anfl occupy oneself with thelf needs. Then 'one day, quite suddenly, all mistrust and fear are overcome and one la repaid a ..thousandfold for all his trouble by making a genuine friend of the bird. "My marabous moved about in the camp free and unrestrained. They built their nests and did not try to fly away. They greeted ma on my return with Joyful cack- llnga; they planted themselves close to my tent as sentinels and caressed me with their powerful and dangerous bills. For a long tlm my black cook had taken ' on the duty of feeding them, and their af fection for Xia was not at all the result of my giving them dainties, but of my Just and Intelligent conception of their habits."

A correspondent of the New York Sun, who journey from Harlem rlvor to Salt feck, for the purpose, sends to his paper, under date of October I, this Unique re port of an Interview with the peerless son of Nebraska: I reached Lincoln at 9 o'clock, and tak ing a double mule team, a rig peculiar to this part of the country, arrived at the Bryan homestead shortly before noon. The great leader was not in tho houae at the time, but Mr. G. Wlnkdoddy Blinn, as sistant war correspondent of the Com moner, received me with great cordiality. and After Inviting me to take a drink of new mown milk, set out to help me to find the peerlejs leader. A Clnclnnatns Pose. W. J. was leaning with one arm oh a stile and the other resting affectionately on the head of a young calf as we ap proached, hi appearance still the same a ever the samu familiar smile, the same fedora hat, the same negligee hair. But, somehow, there seemed to me to be difference in the expression a faraway look In the eye, a though, regardless of his personal feelings, he was expecting very moment to have his peaceful life broken up by the intrusion of some bad political messenger, with the demand that he again lead the unterrllled democracy to victory. "So hera you are," said William, "fresh from the great cities and rrom the buay mart of men. How 1 Providence and dear old New England, too, with her mills and her factories, her mactoriea and her fills? When I think of the tens of thou sands of sturdy workers pouring out of their homes all through your noble state every morning I feel " "W. J.," Interrupted Mr. Blinn, "you're a-forgettln' of yourself." "That Is true," aaid Mr. Bryan with a sigh, "but once in a while the old dream comes o'er me and I hear again the clash ing battle of the snorting hoofs and the bitter blackguardrles of the political plat form." "W want to know, Mr. Bryan," I aaid, "whether you are a candidate for the presidential nomination or not." "My boy," replied Mr. Bryan, "I am not. Look about you. Here to my left, extending all the way to the top of yonder hill, Is my goat farm, and Just beyond the crest of the hill, where you see the chimneys peeping over the Nebraska deodars, my buttery.' Here to the right are 90,000 acres of corn, the corn, the yellow corn within whose golden heart there Is health and strength for all the nations. I have only to look across the way and see my com fortable homestead, where the clattering of the presses that produce the Commoner mingles at eventide with the clamor of the hens, for their - roost and the yodels and chanties of my brave farm lads coming borne after a hard day's work, Haral Peace.

Enoch Arden, no doubt, had plenteous hard luck, but In comparison with Alfre.1 r lelds Khoadea, a soldier, who arrived in Brooklyn Saturday, Tennyson'a soldier of misery traveled the high road of good fortune all bis life. Rhoadea, after be ing seriously woundod by a bolo man in ihg hh.lippinea and then serving Ova years of a fifty years' sentence for kill ing a Filipino, was pardoned by President Kooaevill last August, walked most tf the way from Han Francisco to Brook lyn, only to find that his wife had rair. i.ij anothlr man and has inovtl to some distant part of the country, taking their 10-year-old boy with her. PennlleHS and heartbroken, Rhoades has been tramping the streets for several days, sleeping In the parks or wherever he could find shelter, all the tlmo trying to find some traoe of his wife and boy. -'I loved Katie dearly," be said, aa tears trickled down his bronzed face, "but she would not care for me now. But 1 do so want to see my boy. If I could Just pat his curly little head once more vand hear him aay 'daddy I would not care what happened then." Rhoades Is from a good family in New Jeraey and is a man of education. He re-enllsted In the Fifteenth Infantry at the outbreak of the Spanish war, went to the Philippines and was with his regiment when it was attacked by natives on the Island of Eamar In 1901. He was seri ously wounded In the abdomen and lay In the hospital for six months. After recovery he was on picket duty one day when two Filipinos began quar- r-'hri? ard one of them tried to obtain hla gun to shoot his adversary.
