GREAT BOLDNESS OF SLAVE STEAL
ERS FROM SOUDAN.

A Sevoii AVekit' Drlvn from Khartoum
to the Count The Trulllo Hecrctly
A few wec-ka ngo It was nunounowl In the
house of commons that the slnve trade had
liocii rwipcin-il on u largo soulo on tho north
east coiit of Afrii-n. Bir J. lVrgutoi, tho
utxlcr secretary of stato for foreign affairs,
nai(l that both tho English ami French govern
ments had tnken energetic steps to suppress
tho evil. Kinco thnt tirue 15ritih vessels jn
tho Kel sea liavo captured four slave dhows
mid tho Egyptian government has fitted them
up as cruisers for tho suppression of tho in
famous trado. Tho slavers wero never so
l.old hefore. They take their human cargoes
to Jodduh, which is tho port of Mecca on tho
lied sea, and they boldly incur tho greatest
risks. Ia'ss than throe weeks ago tho launch
of a I5ritih man of war was attacked by a
slaver, and hix Englishmen wcro wounded in
tho fight. Tho dhow was, however, sunk,
and forty-threo slaves wero rescued.
Tho slave dealers aro Soudam8e, tho fol
lowers of tho new Mahdi. All restriction
upon slave stealing in the Soudan being now
removed, they have once more tapped their
old source of supply in southern Darfur and
tho Lahr el Ghazal region. Slaves are Ixiing
driven by thousands to Khartoum. If the
dealers can only smugglo their victims over
to Jeddah and Mecca their profits are enor
mous. Young women and big boys who can
bo driven to tho coast at a total cost of not
over $25 npieco sell readily in tho larger Ara
bians towns for from five to ten times that
OHEAT UISKS ENORUOUS TKOFITS.
Tho temptation to run great risks in order
to pocket theso great profits is enormous,
particularly as tho Soudanese are in desper
ate need of trade goods, and tho 6lavers have
only to return homo with cloth and other do
hirablo commodities to reap another largo
harvest. Tho slavo trado is now stimulated
not only by tho great profits of the business,
but also by the fact that all trado is contra
band. Tho merchants run just as great risks
if they are caught with ostrich feathers or
ivory, on which the xrofit is much less than
cm slaves. They are therefore confining
themselves to slaves.
The sufferings of the poor captives are terri
bio. It takes alout seven weeks to drive
them from Khartoum to tho coast One
party that recently left Khartoum COO strong
reached the coast only 2)0 in number. Tho
bones of tho other hundred strew tho route
from Berber to tho sea. It is said that about
55,000 slaves have leen- smuggled across tho
Red Sea to Jeddah since Jan. 1. It is re
markable that tho semi-bar barians of tho
Soudan aro able to carry on so large a trado
in these. Every dhow wiioso hold is packed
with black merchandise cresses the busy
highway followed by most of the vessels ply
ing between Euroie and the Orient.
Tho slaves are taken to somo little harbor
or anchorage north or south of Souakin,
which is tho only point where British vessels
aro stationed. They aro quickly packed into
dhows w ich slip over to Jeddah in the night
time. The peoplo of Jeddah and Mecca are
slave dealers themselves and thorough sym
pathizers with tho Soudanese, and the traffic
is secretly fostered by tho Turkish authori
ties in those towns. It has just been discov
ered that many of th'-'so new slaves have been
introduced into Egypt by pilgrim bands re
turning home, who pretend that tho captives
are legitimate parts of thoir caravan. Many
of these slaves have been liberated by the
authorities. Kew York Sun.
Disease Germs in the Air.
Recent experiments by Dr. Percy F. Frank
land, described beforo the English Society of
Arts, show the following number of micro
scopic organisms found in a given quantity of
air in difterent localities:
Top of Trimroso hill, 9; bottom of Prim
rose hill, Si; top or JNorwicn cathedral spirt
(300 feet), 7; at the bottom, 18; Golden gal
lory of St. Paul's cathedral, 11; in tho church
yard beneath, 70; in Kensington gardens, 13;
Hyde park, 43; Exhibition road, 554; in the
chemical laboratory ot Science institution,
82; in the room of meeting of the Royal so
ciety near the close of the session,
In a third class railway carriago containing
four persons, soon after starting, tho number
of organisms that were falling on one square
foot cer minute was 395. Soon after this the
carriasre was filled, containing ten persons,
after which it was found that the number
falling per square foot per minute was 3,120.
At a distance from land of ninety sea miles
tho average of the experiments gave one
organism in twenty-six liters; when the dis
tance from land was ijo miles ic was one in
ninety-three liters. Out of twelve expert
ments made at a minimum distance of 120 sea
miles in eleven the air was absolutely germ
free, so that it would appear that the maxi
mum distance to which, under ordinary cir
cumstances, micro-organisms can be trans
ported across tho sea is about 120 sea miles.

BRIGHAM YOUNG'S SON.
"Oath" Interviews One of the Mormon
John Willard Young is tho youngest son
of the first wife of Brigham Young, and
ho is tho vice president of an intelligence
office of a peculiar nature, which combines
banking and topography, statistics and
general information. Having known Mr.
Young somewhat years ago, I took tho op
portunity of rediscovering him to ask some
leading questions about tho issues in Utah.
He is, I think, about 43 years old, and ho
has, if I am correctly informed, ten sons and
ten daughters. lie was born at Nauvoo
near the timo Joseph Smith was murdered in
tho Carthage jail. Few men aro more pre
sentable and fascinating. There is an under
tone of religious affection in his naturo quite
removed from cant or Pharisoeism.
"Where did your mother come from in tho
first place!" I asked.
"From Rhode Island, at no great distance
from Providence. My father was a native of
Vermont. My mother went out to Kirtland,
O., in pursuit of information alout this new
religion which Joseph Smith had introduced.
Thoro sho became a member of the church.
and in courso cf time married my father,
being his first wife."
"Are you awaro, Mr. Young, that President
Garfiold lived close by Kirtland and was ac
quainted with Joseph Smith?"
"les; Gar naM talked to mo frequently on
that subject. lie told nie that there was not
the least doubt that Joseph Smith had the
power to perform miracles, and related that
ho cast a devil out cf a man. Garfield ex
plained it on tho ground that Smith was a
man of great magnetism. Some of the neigh
bors claim that Garfield had serious inten
tions of joining tho Mormon faith in his
youth. lie was a Canipbellite preacher.
After he had taken so much interest in our
peoplo and was sincerely liked by them, wo
felt it hard that ho should have yielded to tho
intolerance of his official circle, and have
given U3 littlo more chance than any of tho
what Mr. Young relates about Garfield
was true. He told mo with considerable ani
mation that once in Kirtland a person seemed
possessed with a devil and had somo kind of
lunacy. Joseph Smith, Garfield said, was a
splendid looking man, young and halo and
strong', and he commanded this evil spirit to
leave tho penon. Garfield said that thero
was almost a visible issuing of tho demon
from tho man. He, however, put tho whole
thing on the ground of a strong will. "Gath"

Polk and Webster.
In conversation a few day since with an
old resident of Washington, who was pro
prietor of a large custom and ready made
clothing establishment on Pennsylvania
avenue when James K. Polk was president,
ho said of all tho great men of that time
whom he knew or had business transactions
with, Polk was tho most picayunish, and
Webster the largest hearted. One day Web
ster camo in to select cloth for a dress suit.
Almost always beggars, mostly women beg
gars, watched him as ho went in and out of
his f avorito resorts on tho avenue, and ap
proaching him with pitiful tale3 never failed
to get money if he had it.
This time ho had hardly got inside the door
when in came a poor old woman, and with
tears trickling down her wrinkled cheeks sup
plicated for alms. Webster was more out of
humor than was his wont to be, and cram
ming his big hand down into his small panta
loons pocket brought out a piece of money
and said: "Here, take thi3 and bo off, or I'll
have you arrested. It's all I have for you."
After selecting the cloth for his suit he put
his hand in his pocket to mako the accus
tomed advance payment. Turning the
pocket insido out and looking at it he said:
"If I didn't give that woman a $10 gold piece 1
Well, it's all the same! It'll do her more
good than I could have got out of it I Charge
the whole amount." He rarely asked the
price of anything, and never intimated that
it was exorbitant, as Polk always did. Of
course, knowing his weakness in this direc
tion, many tradespeople imposed upon him.
Was Wilkes Booth Crazy?
Secretary .Shepherd, of the Illinois Stato
Sportsmen's association, was an intimate
friend of John Wilkes Booth. Tho two men
were in New Orleans shortly before the assas
sination of President iiincoln. Both were
patrons of the same gymnasium in the city,
and each had a certain amount of admiration
for the other. Shepherd was in a reminiscent
mood tho other day.luid, among other things.
he said that he was satisfied that Booth was
as crazy as a March Vare all the time he was
in New Orleans. The assassin spent a great
deal of his time in the gymnasium. Thero
was a high platform i?i the building, and
Booth seemed to have a mania for jumping ofT
it to tho floor below. Ho would repeat the
perf ormanco a score of tomes every half hour,
and, tiring of the strange exercise, tho assassin
would run around tho room until he had
covered from ten to a dozen miles. That
Booth was then in training for his murderous
work there seems to be little doubt. One day
be rushed up to Shepherd, and, with a fever
ish glitter in his eye, exclaimed: "Shepherd,
you'll hear something great about mo beforo
Shepherd did hear the startling story of bis
friend's terrible deed, but nothing could con
vince him that it was the work of a sano
man. Chicago Herald.

Worshiping; a Prayer Cook.
A missionary in Africa found a heath'en
tribe worshiping an Episcopal prayer book,
and was encouraged to think that his lines
had fallen in pleasant places. He wanted to
go home when be learned that the heathen
had adopted tho book as an idol on account of
its gilded edges, after eating the missionary

FASCINATIONS OF THE DRUG.
The Squalor and Mlnerjr Seen by a Jour-
null xt A Mistulto Corrected.
I made a tour of all the opium place in
New York once, accompanied by a celebrated
authority on tho opium habit, and a man
who had a largo practice among slaves of the
drug. We bad one of the shrewdest detec
tives from tho central office with us. What
my two companions did not know about the
onium habit in New York was not worth
knowing. We spent throe nights on tho
tour. It was a continual succession of re
volting pictures, a nightmare of 6tifling
odors and an unbroken series of ghastly, un
pleasant pictures. It was an experience I
shall never forget, for it bad in it more
squalor, misery and beastliness than I ever
expect to see again. We searched in vain for
tho magnificent "dives" upholstered with
oriental magnificence, furnished with superb
Chinese divans, lighted in grotesque and
beautiful lamps, mado soft and noiseless by
rich rugs and managed by soft footed and
moon cved Celestials, about which so much
has leen written, and whore it is said the
society ladies of Now York give themselves
over to tho fascinations or the awiui urug.
The most pretentious place that I saw during
the tour was in the sub-collar of a Sixth
avenue house. Tho floor was carpeted, and
that is why it stood out in such striking mag
nificence and splendor, as compared with
other places. Tho couches wero rough wooden
bunks, tho ceiling low, begrimed and sooty
and the lack of cleanliness something awful
It was about 1 o'clock in tho morning. A
singlo light burned in the center of tho square
room and the women lay in tho bunks around
tbo four sides. All of them had their gowns
loosened at tho throat, and they lay in posi
tions of absolute langour and indifference.
Somo had rolled over on thoir baeks, some
lay heavily on their faces and others were
twisted up awkwardly in corners. Only two
of them wero what might be called decently
clad. They wore the flash Jewelry and gaudy
clothes of women of tho town. It was said
that this place bad tho best class of smokers
of any in New York, and we went back in
the afternoon tho dotectives and I to have
a look at moro of them. We found women
who were better dressed than tho ones we eavr
that night, and among them was a rather
well known actress and two women who
drivo magnificent horse3 and make a great
show about town. They wore all half dood
ened by tho drug, and ns tho Chinaman took
bis light around and flashed it in their faces
a few of them opened their eyes. Ho evi
dently considered them great swclb, and
even tho dotectives wero moro or less im
pressed by tho gorgeous attiro of several of
tho devotees of tho habit, but it needed only
n glanco to show that not a woman among
them had tho faintest right to the title lady
nor tho least claim to respectability.
New York women and New York ladles,
too, for that matter havo enough sins and
indiscretions end wild escapades to answer
for without saddling on them tho odium of
establishing regal and magnificent club3 and
palaces for tho gratification of their curious
passions. Blakcly Hall's New York Letter.

"Is your skill in feats of legerdemain
mainly tho result of education?"
"No, sir. My success is due to the fact
that I was built that way. It is my inher
itance from tho unknown. I havo perfected
my manipulation by practico, but tho initial
motive comes from my heredity. My skill
is not confined to my sleight of hr.nd per
formances in public. I havo psychological
or mesmeric powers which I do not display,
because there has been so much humbug in
that hue. I will givo you n sample of my
power. Please stand up."
Tho reporter obeyed.
"Put your feet close together."
Tho professor then placed the tips of the
fingers of both his hands on the reporter'!
Bhoulders. He then directed another man
standing behind tho reporter to place his fin
gers over his (tho professor's) fingers.
"Now," said tho professor to tho third
party, "nod your head in tho direction you
wish the reporter to fall"
The scribe saw ho was caught and ho looked
down to see if the floor was oak or pine. Hit
next impulse was to stretch his legs apart.
But thoso dreadful black eyes wero on him.
Tho third party nodded in which direction
tho victim knew not. Almost immediately,
while tho napoleonic demon was apparently
looking down through him and analysing the
late breakfast he had eaten, tho reporter felt
a marked sensation down his left 6ide which
quickened the action of bis heart. He did
not try to drivo tho feeling away by an effort
of will, and slowly the sensation which
somewhat resembled a prolonged shock of
electricity deepened and quickened, until he
began to swey liko a tree partly chopped
through. He was begining to sizo up the
chances of falling through tho looking glass
when tho professor removed his hand and
with them the influence.
"Such manifestations of power as thoso of
which you have just felt tho influence I re
gard as perhaps my highest gifts," said the
professor. "Given tho proper subject, I can
cause him to fall to tho floor without touching
his body. Whilo I don't profess to be able to
explain theso phenomena, still I am possessed
of tho power to execute them." New York

People In my trade are vi'ry intimately as
sociated with the police. There is never a
professional bank, vault or safe robbery that
we are not called in, end when I was at the
head of our establishment in New York I was
frequently called out, and to all parts of tho
country. You would hardly believo it if I
told you that there are cot to exceed half a
dozen first class cracksmen of this character
in the country, and yet that statement is
true, and I know them all and can call tbcm
by their work. One of theso men might as
well, almost, leave his namo behind as a mark
of his work, and he can't very woll destroy
all trace of it. I remember one case I was
called on to investigate in Ohio. I looked
over the work and remarked, "Well, if I
didn't do this myself it was my old boy." He
bad learned his trade under me, and I knew
every mark bo made. The detectives worked
the rase up on that clew, ho was arrested,
found guilty, and is now serving a twenty
years' sentence in tho penitentiary. Just so
