Wiies Dr. Popper called on Gen.
Sheridan early yesterday morning, hav

the general recognized him and said: "I
intend to get well all the same."
It is worthy of note that the most pop

now on sale in this city was manufactur

As honest farmer, on a cold winter
day, found a snake lying torpid in the

not so stupid as he looked, he dispatched
the reptile with his boot. On reaching

a large reward for the aforesaid snake, if
returned in good ord"r to the museum in
a neighboring town. Thi3 fable teaches

IS THE WAR OVEIil
We would be glad to believe that it is,
and that its spirit died with it; but how
can we so believe in the face of the re
When Mr. Cleveland went into office
the county was at peace. Under the
benign influence of W'sa legislation the
south was coming to accept tho full sig
nificance of the decisions of the war, and
with a continuance of the same general
policy it would not have been many
years until all sections became united as
they never have been.
But no sooner had Jlr. Cleveland taken
the oath of office than he began to scheme
for a second term, and his first endeavor
was to make the south solid at his back.
The effect of this was to revive the spirit
of sectionalism, which is stronger in the
south today than at any time since the
close of the war. This fact was plainly
demonstrated at the passage of the bill
to revive the grade of general of the
Army for General Sheridan. The propo
sition was bitterly fought in the house
by the ex-confederates, and -in the 6enate
there were seven votes cast against it.
The intent of the measure was simply to
confer a last testimonial of lays and re
spect upon a dying soldier who had done
great service to the country. Those who
voted iu the negative were:
Senator flerry, of Arkansas.
Senator Coke, of Texas.
Senator Harris, of Tennessee.
Senator Regan, of Texas.
Senator Saulsbury, of Deleware,
Senator Vance, of North Carolina.
Senater Wilson, of Maryland.
All from the solid south, and all dem
ocrats. What influenced them to oppose
the bill ? . Ths attending physicians had
reported that there wa3 practically no
hope for the sick man's recovery, though
one had said that the tribute by congress
might stimulate his wasted energies and
give him strength to meet the crisis. The
. object, then, in passing the bill was, first,
to honer a dying hero; and, second, to
possibly aid in the effort to save his life.
The purpose in opposing it could have
been only to defeat these objects. It was
born of sectional and partisan hate, and a
declation that the war is not over.
It is all right for the South to be solid
by fair means; it is all right for it to vote
for democratic candidates, and to crown
Jeff Davis if that is its pleasure, but when
it Interposes objection to the payment of
a tribute to a man who was true to the un
ion because of the facfof his loyalty, it is
time to protest Democratic newspapers
which say the war has been over a quar
ter of a century are mistaken, or are en-
deavoring to mislead. It was over, but
has been revived not by the ronewal of
the actual clash of arms, but by the dis
play of hatred toward the men who de
fended the flag, and the institutions
which were preserved. The spirit of dis
loyalty actuated the vote against the bill
to revive the grade of general of tho
army. There can ue no oiuer ipiau

It will be noticed that nearly twice as

have given the preference in their pur

There are 1,010 medicines in the pharmaco
poeia of the United States, and in most com
munities there is one man who has tried
every one of them before discovering that
there never was anything the matter with
him. The taste for strong drink is a mild,
innocuous, feeble inclination compared with
the raging mania for "taking medicine"
when once it gains a perniciously active hold
upon a man. There are not many really sick
people in the world, and if it wasn't for the
man who delights in dosing himself with any
thing that has a long name and an almanac
attachment, there wouldn't be half enough

"1 pick out two or three Germans," he be
gan, "and start out about November. We
take (40,000 in silver with us in old Austrian
money the Maria Theresa dollars. We go
to Trieste, thence through the Suez canal o
Suez. There we take an Egyptian steamer
and go to Suakim. At Suakitn we have to
buv a dozen or more camels to carry too Dag-
gage, ammunition, rifles, eta, and we have
to hire drivers also, it tafc.es iourcameisto
carry the silver.
"From Suakim we journey across tne
Nubian desert, a trip of eighteen or twenty
days. We travel only in the night on ac
count of the fierce heat, in the day time
making a shelter for ourselves against the
sun's blasting rays. Sometimes we encoun
ter a sirocco, a terriflo .whirlwind that
sweeps the sand before it in blind
ing blasts. When a sirocco springs
up the day suddenly grows dark. Then
the camels instinctively bury their
heads in the sand and we wrap ourselves in
blankets and curl up in holes in the sand that
we have made, and wait until the storm has
blown over. There ore twelve military sta
tions along the route garrisoned with sol
diers who protect the telegraph. Our desti
nation is Cassala, an old Egyptian post of
20,000 inhabitants. There we purchase an
extra supply of twenty or thirty camels,
Some lumber for crates and take in a new
Bupply of provisions. The game has long
aeo been shot off the deserts, and we have to
live on preservea meats, isuit we sluko
out toward the east, and after journeying
five or six days we arrive at the district of
Iiomrahan, on the Setite river, our final des
tination." Here is where the work of the year begins.
The country is owned by sheiks, each dis
trict being governed by a sheik and Lohse
has to purchase permission from the sheik of
Iiomrahan to work there. The natives here,
according to Lohse, are a cross between the
emigrated Egyptians and Nubians, and ho
says that they are courageous and intelligent.
But from his methods of procedure one might
infer that the natives are first cousins to our
"Lo, the poor Indian." Ixlise brings with
him presents with which to propitiate his
dusky friends. He has silks, cloths, calicoes,
rifles, revolvers, ammunition, sweetmeats
and beads. Lohse is foxy and he has no diffi
culty in working on the affections of his dark
brothers with beads and sweetmeats. Tho
sheik is the big gun and he readily gives
Lohse 100 acres for an encampment, and
furnishes him with 100 men to hunt and help
on the work. First the underbush is burned
off the land and then tho cleared space is en
circled with a thorn fence eight feet high to
protect the "seriffa" from the attacks of wild
animals at night. It is a terrible piece of
work to construct this fence, but once up it
serves for seven months.
Next Lohse must buy horses for his native
hunters. The natives have several peculiari
ties. They won't do anything for themselves.
Lohse they call "Touil" or "the Long Man"
that is why they look up to him, so to
speak, for ho must do about everything. The
horses are bought for $18 to $20 apiece, and
then the hunting expeditions are at once or
ganized. First Lohse divides his troops into
elephant hunters, giraffe hunters, ostrich
hunters, rhinoceros hiuiters, etc. Lohse talks
as if elephant hunts were not particularly ex
citing a mere matter of killing musquitoos.
He takes ten or twenty horsemen with him
and a number of footmen. "Four of tho
horsemen," Lohse explained, "aretoteaso the
elephants, a necessary feature of the hunt.
The elephants herd in fifties or sixties, and
live in the interior during the daytime.
At night they come to the river, sometimes
remaining in the water all night."
While the elephant hunters have been at
work the giraffe hunters have not been idle.
"It takes only fortynsix horses for a giraffa
hunt," said Lohse with a smile, "and a dozen
footmen besides. The giraffes go in troops,
as many as one hundred in number. We
start out in the hottest part of the day and
find our long necked friends in thickets. We
drive them out into the opening and chase
them round and round until the young ones
the giraffes that we want fall down from
The Setite river is long, and when it fol
lows its course it is shallow. In its bends,
however, are deep pools, and here the hippo
potami are found. "I have often counted
twenty or thirty hippopotami in these pools,"
said Lohse. "It is possible to catch only the
young ones. A rhinoceros is a dangerous
beast to hunt.' You can dodge him, how
ever, for when he is wounded he runs iu a
bee line and butts over anything."
Lions are not numerous enough in Nubia
to send out an expedition there for lions
alone. The few there, however, are healthy,
vigorous and extremely patriotic. They re
sent the approaches of civilization. An
ostrich bunt is not so exciting as it is interest
ing; in fact there is little of a hunt about it;
it's a clear case of robbing the hen roost, and
Louse's dusky friends apriar to have "got it
down to a fine art." '
Toward June Lohse-hegins to get ready for
the home trip. He divides his procession into
a dozen or S companies. There is a cook for
each company, and they cook, or rather
make "durah," a sort of "journey cake," of
corn. Each big giraffe has one rider and
two or three men to lead it. The elephants
require the same number of attendants. The
ostriches have their legs shackled so that
they can take only extremely short steps.
They go along with their old friends the
goats. The other animals are boxed up and
the patient camels tug them along on rude
carts. There are from 300 to 400 men and
from 00 to 100 camels in a procession, and
they have plenty of work to do. New York
