EnelMiuI Saw Several in 1830.
Tho first irafTf mn-n in Enroi) since
the tertiary epoch was obtained from
Alexandria by Julius Ca'sar and ex
hibited at tho Circensiun games to crowds
who exjiected from its name, "camelo
pard," to find in it a combination the
fsizo of a camel and tho ferocity of a
panther. Pliny, who descriled it, echoed
the public disapTMiiitmeiit. it was as
quiet," he wrote, 'as a sheep."
Tho trade probably reached its maxi
mum after it became the fashion to ex
hibit combats of wild leasts at Rome,
yet even then giraffes seem to have been
scarce in the popular shows, though
Pompey could exhibit 500 lions at a
time, and the Enieror Titus, at the ded
ication of his new theater, caused the
slaughter of 5,000 wild beasts. Eithei
tho numler of wild animals in the prov
inces must have been beyond anything
siuce Known, or tue Komau governors
must have used their desjiotic powers
freely to oblige their mends.
Desjiots are tho best collectors, and
from the fall of the Roman empire till
the arrival of those placed in the zoolog
ical gardens in 18:50 the rare appear
ances of the giraffe in Euroie were in
each case due to the munificence ot
eastern snltans and pashas. The princt
of Damascus gave one to the Einperoi
rrederick II m 1215, and the soldan ol
Egypt presented another to Lorenzo the
Magnificent, which became the pet oi
t lorence, and used tole allowed to walk
in the streets and take the presents of
fruit and cakes extended to it from the
balconies. From this time the giraffe
was not seen m Europe until in 1S27 the
pasha of Egypt sent four to Constanti
nople, Venice. England and France re
ine giraue sent to England was in
bad health and soon died; but the Pari
sians went wild over the pasha's present,
It had spent the winter at Marseilles,
and throve there on the milk of the cows
which the pasha had sent over for its.
use from Egypt. The prefect of Mar
seilles had the arms of France embroid
ered on its body cloth, and it entered
Paris escorted by a Darfour negro, Has
san, an Arab; a Marseilles groom, a
mulatto interpreter, the prefect of Mar
seilles himself and a professor from thb
"Jardin des Plantes," while troops kept
back the crowd. Thousands came every
day to see it, and men and women wore
gloves, gowns and waistcoats of tht
color of its spots.
But the successful expenditure by
which, in 1836, M. Thibaut procured a
stock of giraffes for the Zoological so
ciety owed nothing to the patronage of
the pasha of Egypt beyond permission
to enter the Soudan. The caravan left
the Nile near Dougola, and thence
passed on to the desert of Kordofan.
lnere JM. xmoaut; engagea tne services
of the Arab sword hunters, whose skill
and courage were of such service to Sir
Samuel Baker in his expedition thirty
years later to the sources of the Nile
tributaries, -ind in two days they sighted
the giraffes.
A female with a fawn was first pur
sued by the Arabs, who killed the ani
mal with their swords, and next day
tracked and caught the fawn in the
thorny mimosa scrub. For four days
the young giraffe was secured by a cord,
the end of which was held by one of the
Arabs; at the end of that time it was
perfectly tame, and trotted after the
caravan witn tne temaie camels which
had been brought to supply it with milk.
The Arabs were excellent nurses, and
taught the young creature to drink milk
by putting their fingers into its mouth
and so inducing it to suck.
Four others which M. Thibaut caught
died in the cold weather in the desert.
But he replaced three of these and
brought four, including the first taken,
down the Nile to Alexandria, and then
by ship to Malta. "Providence alone,'
he wrote, "enabled me to surmount these
difficulties." From Malta they, were
brought to London and safely lodged in
the Zoological gardens in the summer
of 1836. The largest was then about
eleven feet high, the height of an adult
male being twelve feet at the shoulders
and eighteen feet at the head. For
many years, as we have said, the giraffes
throve and multiplied. They readily
took to European food, and ate hay and
fresh grass from the tall racks with
which their stables were fitted.
Onions and sugar were their favorite
delicacies, and in search of sugar they
would follow their keepers and slip their
long prehensile tongues into his hands
or pockets, isut they always retained
a liking for eating flowers, a reminis
cence perhaps or the days when their
parents feasted on mimosa blossoms in
the desert; some time ago one was seen
to stretch its neck over the railings and
to delicately nip off an artificial rose in
a young lady's hat. They were most af
fectionate creatures, and, as M. Thibaut
noticed when in charge of them in up
per Egypt, would shed tears if they
missed their companions or their usual
But the development of the lachrymal
ducts, which enable the giraffe to ex
press its emotions in this very human
fashion, is less obvious than the won
derful size and beauty of the ej'es them
selves, which are far larger than those
of any other quadruped. While the
mahdi's power remains unbroken at
Khartoum, there is little probability
that the Soudan traders will be able to
supply any giraffes to occupy the empty
house in Regent's park. London Siec-

The other day I was listening to a con

Rainmakliig Itombs.
A company engaged in the manufac
ture of explosives in this city has for
sale now small bombs about the size of
frankfurter sausages, with which it is
said the farmer can bring down small
showers of rain whenever he sees clouds
over his land.
The constituents of one bomb are di
vided into two parts, liquid and solid,
which are both separately nonexplosive.
These can be kept separate until the
time comes to use them, when they are
The solid part is about an inch in di
ameter and eight inches in length, and
is wrapped in cotton. These bombs are
placed in grooved tin boxes, each hold
ing ten. A small tin measure, contain
ing the liquid part, accompanies each
box. It is graduated to show the quan
tity needed to saturate the bomb to the
exploding point.
Five or fifty bombs may be used, ac
cording to the amount of rain needed
or the detonation required. How the
farmer is to know how much detonation
is needed is a dubious matter. The
bombs are tied in a bundle, a time fuse
is attached and the whole lot discharged
from a mortar and at the passing cloud,
in nuiy countries clouds or ten pass
over the valleys and discharge their
contents on the barren mountain sides.
In such regions, it is said, the bombs
will be particularly useful. New York
A City Marshal Abroad.
une or tne city marshals who took a
vacation recently and went to France
found what a big man a marshal over
there is and how much a marshal's
badge amounts to. He started to go to
several places of public interest in Paris
at an hour when they were not open to
the public. At the entrance he was
stopped and told that the places were
closed. He said that he was an Ameri
can and had only a short time to stay in
Paris, and that if he could not get in
then it would be too late. That made
no difference until he happened to -put
his hand in his trousers pocket for some
change with which to try to bribe the
attendant." His coat was unbuttoned,
and his arm pulling back the lapel
showed his big city marshal's badge in
blue, gold and gilt, with the word "Mar
shal" on it big enough to be read ten
feet away. As soon as the Frenchman
saw the word marshal he became obse
quious. The American marshal, as the
city marshal became known, was shown
around with a great deal of considera
tion, and the Frenchman declined to ac
cept a fee. New York Sun.
She Appealed to Hit Patriotism.
A friend of mine has a "polly" that is
very talkative. Sunday he put the bird
on the parlor window sill. Polly pretty
on caught sight of a policeman who
was just passing by, who was also a
member of the A. O. H., and shouted at
him, "What a hat!" The policeman
turned around, and seeing no one near,
turned to go away. No sooner had he
turned his back than Polly again shout
ed at him. This time Polly was caught.
The policeman drew his club, and shak
ing it at Polly, said: "It's yon is it? It's
a good thing you're a polly, for if it
wasn't for your color I'd shoot ye."

It is claimed that the longest span of
telephone wire is across the Ohio river,
between Portsmouth, O., and South
Portsmouth, Ky. The wires at this point
span the river from a pole on the Ohio

to the Kentucky hills on the opposite
side, the distance being 3,773 feet be

It is titae) to pick greens, or, rathr,
dig greens. Traveling the rural mud
in Connecticut just now, especially in
the neigborhood of citioft, one sees chil
dren and women on the green lots by
the roadside digging in the ground just
as fast as they can. Each one carries a
willow arm basket or tin pitil, and .
short bladed cane knife. The little
squads chatter and laugh and talk
gossip, and now and then one trills the
refrain of a popular song. They are
not skylarking or merrymaking; they
are digging greens red ami yellow
dock, dandelions, burdock and plantain
for home consumption.
Everybody want greens now, and
trade in them is very lively. In a few
weeks the garden greens cultivated
dandelions or spinach will be ready to
market, and then the popular demand
for wild greens will cease. Most of tho
will greens gathered by Connecticut
women and children are dandelions and
dock, but some of tho bolder ones, nim

Halibut In I'lenty.
The fishing schooner Surprise, Captain
James Bell commanding, which sailed
from Astoria in November for tho pur
pose of prospecting the coast of Alaska
and the Alexander archij.ielago in bojes
of finding banks where halibut could be
taken during the winter, returned to
Astoria Saturday. She cruised around
till April, visiting every point where
there was a prospect of finding halibut
and setting trawls in many places with
out success until on the 8th of April, af
ter rounding Caje Chacon, on Prince
Edward island, the most southwesterly
point of Alaska, the first run of halibut
was encountered.
The fish were so plentiful and easily
caught that Captain Bell, foreseeing his
supply of ice was to run short, hove
away to the northeast and headed up
Frederick's sound for the Lacont glacier,
which was reached after a two days'
run, and on tho 12th, with tho hold full
of ice, sail was made, and the 14th found
the Surprise again off Capo Chacon,
standing off and on, with set lines and
trawls out, and tho sea fairly alive with
halibut. Some idea can be formed as to
how plentiful the fish were from the
fact that in two days Captain Bell, his
two sons and an Indian caught, cleaned
and packed in the ice ten and a half tons
of halibut. Portland Oregonian.

A Relic Found In a River.
While Edgar Bates, a geologist, of
Angola, was prospecting in Jackson
county, Mich., he discovered in a stream
a peculiarly marked stone, rudely cut
by a blunt instrument. With the aid of
a microscope he was able to decipher an
inscription running to this effect: "Sam
uel Bernet: I was taken by the Indians
near Sandusky, and I expect never to
reach that place. If my friends I
am to be burned. April 16, 1809." The
stone on which this was engraved was a
peculiar kind of slate, of which none
exists in Michigan, and Mr. Bates is
confident that the relic is genuine and
of high value. Philadelphia Ledger.
