MONARCH IN CAPTIVITY. .
Some Interesting details In regard to
the present condition of Samory, the
dethroned African monarch, have Just
been received by the French minister
of the colonies. Samory Is now
at Kayes, where he occupies a camp
which Is guarded by a company of sol
diers. He has fifteen wives with him,
and slvteen of his children and several
servants. He spends his time In read
ing the Koran and smoking cigarettes.
To outward seeming Samory Is calm
and contented, but at heart he Is quit
the reverse. He cannot rid himself of
the Idea that he will be murdered some
day, and whenever one of his guards
happens to fire a shot he Is confident
that his Inst hour hiis come. He brood
ed so much over his coming doom that
he quite lost his Benses recently, and
made a determined but futile effort to
Samory still retains with him a few
pieces of his barbaric furniture, but all
his gold and silver treasure, which
mainly consists of gold rings and silver
plates, has been confiscated by the
French government and Is to be sold.
Ills silver cuirass, however, a massive
and unique work of art, will be plnced
In the war museum at Paris. Sam
ory, It is said, has grieved much ovei
the loss of these treasures, and It li
considered doubhtful whether his cap
"Ever hear of the astronomer who
spent sixteen years trying to observe
a total eclipse of the sun?" asked the
ompanlon of the fisherman. "No?
Well, It was something like this. I
believe the place to which the unfortu
nate man went was the Isle of France.
He had made the moet careful prepa
ration and was bound up In his work.
Finally the hour came. .The day was
perfectly clear and all was In readi
ness for the eclipse, but Just as the
moment of totality was approaching
a cloud appeared and concealed the
sun. The astronomer was In despair.
He knew be could not afford to repeat
the visit If he returned home, so he de
cided to remain on the spot for eight
years or until a total eclipse occurred
again. I say eight with a reserva
tion; I am not an astronomer, and It
may have been eighteen years. Well,
again the eventful hour finally ap
proached. Not a cloud was In the sky
and all nature seemed Bmlllng; but
Just aa the great act was about to
occur a sudden squall came up and
the heavens were clouded. The man
who had waited eight years gathered
up his Instruments and returned to his
home to find that the government for
some reason had seized what little
property he had left.
"That Is a pathetic tale," said the
fishermun, making a long cast with a
shining anchovy, "but It Is nothing to
my efforts to take an opuh. An opah
you must know, is one or the most
beautiful of all fishes, a rare and radi
ant creature; hence Its Greek name,
impros. I first saw It In England,
und I spent several weeks trying to
take one along the Falmouth coast,
but neer even heard of an opah, and
the fishermen told me that one was
taken only about once In eight years.
Mark the resemblance to the pitiful
tale of the astronomer!" and, lifting
his rod, the fisherman hooked a chan
nel bass. The gamy fish made a rush.

nearly as could be Judged, then, stop

"I next heard of the opah In Italy,"
continued the angler, as he ganged on
a fresh hook, "and here I was told that
one was caught about once In ten
years, yet I went fishing In every boat

the world, and one day when I strolled
Into the fish market in San Francisco,
will you believe me? there, swinging
by its tall, ablaze with color, was a
gigantic opah, the fish of my dreams,
nearly four feet long and almost aa
high. It was a sunburst, a rainbow,
and the fish dealer said that It was
the first one that had been taken In
eight vears not the period. Some one
has described the fish as 'a rich brocade
of silver and lilac; rosy on the belly:
everywhere with silvery spots; head
and back with ultramarine tines; Jaws
and fins vermlHIon.' The fish was
caught In Monterey Bay, and as I
was more determined than ever to take
an opah, I went to Monterey a few

From Deep Down In the Earth.
The arlrval at the fish commission
of two living specimens of the Typh
lomolge Rathbunl has excited much In
terest These animals came from, an
artesian well dug by the United States
fish commission to supply water to
the fish hatchery near San Marcos,
Tex., and are among the most Interest
ing of subterranean organisms.
The well was bored to a depth of
about 1,500 feet, but was afterward fill
ed up, until It Is now only 188 feet deep.
A flow of 1,200 gallons of water a min
ute Is obtained, and with the water
four varieties of Crustacea and this
salamnder have come to the surface,
all of which are new to science. As
might be expected, these animals are
blind, and the name given to the sala
mander Is due to this fact, being com
pounded by the Greek typhloe, blind
and molge, a kind of salamander. Th
second term is In honor of Prof. Rich
ard Rathbun of the Smithsonian Insti
tution. The larger of the two living speci
mens is about four and a half Inches In
length. It has a large head prolong
ed forward Into a flattened snout In
which is the mouth. The eyes are cov
ered by the skin and appear merely as
small black specks. The body Is slen
der and ends in a tail, flattened from
side to side and used In swimming.
Projecting from the body are two pairs
of legs, the forward pair ending In
four toes, and the rear pair bearing
five toes, as Is customary among sala
manders. These legs are used in walk
ing, and, though very slender, seem
to possess much strength, as they lift
the body clear of the ground, and by
them it can climb over the rocks piled
In the aquarium.
The gills are outside of the body and
are Just behind the head, where they
stand out after the fashion of an Ellza
bethon ruff. These gills are a vivid
red from the contained blood, and
make a sharp contrast to the dingy
white of the spin. The animals aften
crawl out of the water on the rock
heap In the aquarium, and the gills
fall In festoons about their necks.
The general structure is of a larval
type, that Is, resembling the unde
veloped salamanders of today and the
fossils of those of bygone ages. It is
well known that fish and other In
habitants of subterranean waters are
descended from corresponding types
found at the surface In the vicinity, but
the typhlomolge suggesta many prob
lems. As It presents a primitive type,
It may be an Instance of arrested evo
lution or of reversion. When the an
cestors of these specimens became en-
galfed in the earth, It Is probable that
the form now presented was the nor
mal one and that, In the absence of
light and the presence of other ob
stacles to animal life, evolution be
came Impossible and the type became
fixed. On the other hand, this larval
form may be the result of degeneration.
Dr. L. Stejneger of the Smithsonian
Institution has published a brief de
scription of these interesting animals
arid it Is to be hoped that more elabor
ate study may be given them.

killed the late Colonel Montgomery of
the Welsh regiment, one of England's
most gallant soldiers.
Colonel Scott of the royal army med

of the affair, which ti given verbatim:

case," he writes, "I And we had crossed
the Tugela river to the Zululand tide.
After luncheon Colonel Montgomery
and hit adjutant (Captain Reid) went
out to shot quail. When they were
some distance from the camp they dis
mounted and threw the saddles over
the ponies' heads, as is the custom in
South Africa, and then went into some
long grass. Soon after Colonel Mont
gomery felt something prick hit leg,
which he took to be a thorn, but In a

and that he was to ride into the camp
for me. As soon at Captain Reid told
me what had happened I turned my
pony (I was mounted at the time) to
ward the place indicated, and in a few
moments I saw Colonel Montgomery
riding toward camp at a canter. He at
the time looked like a drunken man on
a horse, as he was swaying from side
to side to such an extent that I was
airaid he would fall off. When I got to
him I and others helped him to dis
mount His legs Immediately collapsed,
the result of paralysis, by which it may
be seen that he rode In by balance only.
The injury was sustained at 4 p. m.,
a.nd he was helped off his horse at 4:10
p. m. Already he was pale, nervous
ind very sick (vomiting profusely), had
:ramps and a feeling that he was going
to die. Everything that medical skill
iould devise was done for him, but
nothing was of any avail. Just ten
liours after the accident he was dead,
rhe enormous strength of Jaw possess
ed by the reptile is shown by the fact
that the fangs passed through a cloth
solonial gaiter, colonial riding breeches
ind drawers. Colonel Montgomery was
buried in Zululand, at the Mission Station."

General Grant was stopping at the

as Congress Hall, which was burned in
the disastrous fire of the fall of 1S78,
when many of the landmarks of the re

One Sunday afternoon during Gen

The father and his two sons crossed
