Tricks of Indian Jugglers.
As commooly described in travelers'
tales, tbetree growing trick might well
seem, impossible of explanation. But
if the spectator expects to see a seed
placed in the ground, the leaves start
ing up above the soil, the growth in
creasing, the shrub spreading and the
fruit appearing and ripening directly
under his eyes, he will be grievously
The juggler makes a little heap of
moist earth, perhaps six or eight in
ches high, on the stone step or
the hard carriage drive in front ot the
hotel where the traveller is staying.
The jugjjler himself, dressed in a loin
cloth only, squutaOii the ground be
hind the heap places in it a nut, usual
ly that of he mango tree, and spreads
a cloth over the whole.
After a short time, during which he
waves his hand in the air or assumes
to call upon a pagan divinity to help
him, he snatched away the clotfi, and
two or three tender leaves are seen
appearing above the soil.
He spreads the cloth over it once
more. The plant appears to be grow-
ing rapidly and pushing the cloth up.
The juggler again snatches the cloth
away, and a large and wide-spreading
shrub is seen, its leaves covered with
Sometimes a tripod frame is used,
over which the cloth is thrown, so that,
the plant may "grow" freely beneath
the email tent thus formed.
When the leaves are just visible
above the ground, the juggler lifts the
plant from the earth and shows the
spectators how the nut has apparent
ly swollen and germinated, minting
out the rootlets that extend from tho.
nut through the moist earth.
If, when it litis fully grown, there is
no fruit on the tree, the'jugglor covers
the piant once more with the cloth
and after another short interval of
waiting, again removes it. Two or
three mangoes ave seen which the jug
gler breaks oil and presents to the
The best performance of it I have
ever seen was in Madras, and I learned
from the lugglers exactly how it wtw
When the juggler apparently places
the now mango nut in tho earth he
really places an old split nut there,
which he has held concealed in the
palm of his hand. The new nut he
conceals in tho place previously occu
pied uy me om nut; in otner words,
lie "palms it."
After spreading the cloth, he drops
. the new nut from the palm of his
hand into a fold of his loin cloth,
whence ho takes and "palms" a small
plant, two or three inches long some
times a httle twig of manga with the
root of another plant fastened to the
end of it.
This he does while the attention of
the spectators is given to the waving
01 Jiis otner nana in tno air, or to his
gestures upward for the help of a cod.
He then removes the cloth for the
first time. No leaves appar. While
replacmg the cloth, he inserts the root
of the twig m theold nut, andarranges
the soil so that the top of the stem
and one or two small leaves appear
auove me sunoce.
This done, and the cloth being fully
spread, he waves his hands again in
: the air, and after a short time re
moves the cloth for the second time,
end reveals tho plant in its first stage.
While with one hand showing the
pianc witu its roots, etc., to the spec
tators, he takes with the other hand
from life loin-cloth a piece of branch
half an inch or more in diameter,
. which is wall provided with twigs and
leaves. All of tliese are pressed close
to the branch, and the whole wrapped
round tightly with a pieceof wetcloth.
I have seen this branch aa much as a
foot and a lialf long.
, The juggler conceals this behind his
bare arm, and with a swift movement
slides it under the cloth white ho is ap
parency replacing the small plant.
While spreadhig the cloth he un
wraps the branch, sticks it iato the
soil, expands the twigs andleaves,and
squeezes over them the water from the
wet cleth. Then, "palming" and with
drawing the small plant, he proceeds
as before with his gesticulations, re
moves the covering and shows tho
In the samo manner slips the fruit,
provided with stalks, under tho
cloth in tho next stage, and twists the
end of each stalk round one of the
twigs. When he pulls the fruit after
ward, he takes care to break the stalk
ciose to the fruit.
The cleverness lies in the wonderful
dexterity which the juggler display's in
making his important movements
without being observed.
Scarcely one of my readers, even
with tins knowledge of tho way in
which the trick is done, would actual
ly see the juggler make any ono of the
movements which he desires to be
concealed. Richard Hodgson in
1 oucn s companion.
"I should think so:" cried Uncle
Peter. "Let's have another look at
this great invention of yours. Here

the little door that's the way, isn't
it? Hut what flops the little door?"
"Well," said Tommy, slowly, "you
knew 1 said there was just one thing I
hadn't got hold of yet. I've thought,
and tried, and I can't stem to find
any way to flop that little door when
the mouse goes in. But I'm not going
to give up on account of a little mat
ter like that, even if I have to sit be
hind the wood-box and flop it myself!"

Johnny's mother had occasion to
explain to him: "I am your only real
mamma, if I die and you have an
other mamma she will not be your
real mamma, but just your step

interested in Indians, bavins seen
some real Indians at a circus. Ilisthrae-
year-aid-ahalf-o!d majesty stopped
not long since and examined with in
terest a cigar store Indian.
Is it a real Indian?" inquired
mamma. "So'." said Johnny, "it's

The precise population of New Eng
land, either Indian orwhite.at thetime
of Philip's war cannot be stated, but
for the purpose of war it may be said
that the forces on one side and on the
other were equal. At that time the
Indians were as well used to firearms
as the w hites, but the firelock of those
days was but an inefficient weapon
compared with the musket of later
times or, with the rifle of today.
It seems certain that in urope
flintlocks had been introduced before
this time; but, on tho whole, the
concurrence of evidence shows that
such loeks were not used in tho civil
war in England, and that
both the king's party and
the Purtians still relied on
the matchlock. The form of this can
bo readily explained to any person
who has seen the old flintlock of the
present century. A hammer a good
deal larger than the hammer which
afterward held the flint, but quite like
it had a screw which tightened or
loosened the hold which two pieces of
iron had upon a match.
Each soldier was obliged to carry
some yards of this match with him,
and when the battle began he lighted
the piece of this match which was
fixed in the hammer of the gun. A
pa which held powder, exactly as tho
pan of a flintlock afterward did, was
in fronjs of the hammer, with a cover
projecting,.fcoui which a sort of a horn
raji up nearly vertical, to ba opened

The Laplander finds his chief wealth
in he possession of the rindr,
which not only serves him as a beast
of burden, but furnishes him also
with food and clothing. A Laplander
in good circii instances possesses three
or four hundred 'deer, wlkich enable
him to live in comfort. Thero is a
gad-fly that annoys the reindeer very
much, so much in fact that the Lap

to escape it and tho equally dreaded
