IX DOUBLE DASHER.
A Strange Ailrrnturr.
I've had many a queer voyago in my
time (said Captain M ), but tho
queerest I ever had was ono that I made
(somewhat unexpectedly, as 3-011 will
ee) upon the Groat Fish River, in South
Africa, on my way back from a hunting
As I ncared tho bank I saw that tho
river was in full Hood, more than twice
its. usual breadth, and running liko a
mill-race. I know at onco that I should
havo a ver3 tough job to get across for
a flooded African river is no joke, I can
toll you. Hut I know also that mv wifo
would bo terribly anxious if I "didn't
como 1 ack on tho day that I hail fixed
South Africa being a place where. a
good many things niav kapjicii to a man
and so I determined to chaaccit,
.fust at tho water's odgo I found an
old liushinan that I knew well, who had
a boat of his own, so I hailed hint at
"Well, Kalooini, what will you tako
to put mo across tho river?''
"No go fifty dollar this time, baas"
(master), said tho old fellow, in his
half-Dutch, half-English jargon. "Boat
no get 'cross to-dnv; water crocd
(groat)!" ' b
And never a bit could 1 persuade him,
although I ottered him mono3' enough
to make any ordinary I'ushtuan jump
head first tlown a precipice. Money
was good, he said, but it would bo no
use to hint whon ho was drowned; and,
in short, ho wouldn't budge.
"Well, if you won't put mo across,"
said I at last, lend mo votir boat, and
I'll just do tho job for mysolf; I can't
very well take mv horse with me, so I'll
just leave him hero in pledge that Til
pay for tho boat when 1 como back."
"Keep horse for 3011, roaster, quite
willing; but 'sposo you try cross to-day
you never como back, to ask for him.''
He spoke so positively that, though
I'm not easily frightened, I certainty
did feel rather uncomfortable. How
ever, when ytm'vo got to do a thing of
that sort, the loss you think of it the
better, so I jumped into tho boat and
1 had barely got clear of the shore
when I found that tho old fellow was
right, for the boat shot down tho stream
like an arrow. I saw in a moment that
there was no hope of paddling her
across, and that all I could do was just
to keen her head straight But I hadn't
the chanco of doing even that very
long, for jusMhen a big tree came driv
ing along, and hitting my boat full on
the quarter, smashed her like an egg
shell. I had just time to clutch Jim pro
jecting roots and whisk myself up on to
them, and then tree and I went awav
down stream together at I don't know
how many miles an hour.
At first I was so reioiced at escaninir
just when all seemed over with me,
that I didn't think much of what was
to come next; but before long I got
6omethingto think of with a ven
geance. The tree, as I've said, was a
large one, and tho branch end (the op
posite one to where I sat) was all one
mass of green leaves. All at oace, just
as I was shifting myself to a safer place
among the roots, the leaves suddenly
shook and parted, and oat peeped the
great yellow head and fierce eyes of an
I don't think I ever rot such a fright
in my life. My gaahadf gone to the bot

weapon 1 had left was a short hunting
knife, which against sock & beast a

he mw or heard something ho didn't
like. At first I couldn't imagine what
on earth waa the matter with him, but
presently I caught a sound which scared
me much worse than it had done the
lion. Far in the distance I could hear
a dull, booming roar, which I had
heard too often not to recognize at
once; we were wearing a waterfall!
I had seen the great falls of tho Fish
River more than once, and the bare
thought of being carried over thosj
tremendous precipice. made my very
blood run cold. Yet being devoured
by a lion would hardly bo much of an
improvement, and as I hadn't the ghost
of a chanco of being able toswira ashore,
there realty seemed to be no other al
ternative. Faster and faster wc went--louder
and louder gre;v the roar of the cata
ract; the Hon seemed to have given him
self up for lost, and crouched down
among tho leaves, only uttering a low,
moaning whine every now and then.
I w fairly at my wit's end what to
do, when all of a sudden I caught sight
of something that gave mo a glance of
A little way ahead of us the river nar
rowed suddenly, and a rock3' headland
thrust itself out a good way into the
stream. On ono of the lowest points of
it grew a thick clump of trees, whose
boughs overhung the water; and it
struck mo that. If we only parsed near
enough, I might manage to catch hold
of one of the branches, and swing mj--self
tip on to the rock.
No sooner said than done. I started
up, hardly caring whether the lion at
tacked mu or not, and planted myself
firmly ou one of tho biggest roots,
where I could take a good spring when
the time came. I knew that this would
bo m3 last chance, for b3 this timo wc
were so near the precipice that I could
see quite plainly, a little wa3' ahead,
the great cloud of spn- and vapor that
hovered ovir the great waterfall. Even
at tho best it was a desperate venture,
and I can tell you that I felt my heart
beginning to thump like a sledge-hammer
as we came closer and closer to the
point, and I thought what would hap
pen if J missed 1113- leap.
Just as we ncared it, it happened by
tho special racrey of Hod that our tree
struck against something and turned
fajrty crosswise to the current, tho end
with tho lion on it swinging out into
mid stream, while 103- end was driven
cloe to the rock on which the clump ol
Now or never! I made one spring
(I don't think I ever made such another
boforo or since) and just clutched tho
lowest bough; and as I dragged uy-M'll
on to it I heard tho last roar of the
doomed lion mingling with tho thunder
of the waterfall as he vanished into the
cloud of mist that overhung tho preci
pice. As for mo it was late enough that
night before I got home, and 1 found
my 1 oor wife in a lino fright about mo;
so I thought it just as well, on the
whole, to keep m3 adventure to m3'
sclf, and it wasn't till nearly a 3-ear
lator that sho heard a word about my
strange fellow-voyager. English Magd
zitir. Rennets and Trimming.
Milliners have for tho first timo in
maty 3'ears imported bonnets especially
designed for the intermediate season of
autumn, which in this country is so
beautiful and lats so long that summer
bonnets lose their freshness when the
weather is still too warm for hc-ny win
ter bonnets to bo comfortable. To
meet the wants of this half ?e:ison there
are new bonnets and round hats with
tho brim of dark straw, and the crown
entirely of velvet of tho same shade as
the straw, ami put on almost as smooth
ly as if it were molded there. Thco
como in tho fashionable l'ari.sian shade
of dark green called both hussar and
rifle green, also in olive, bronze, tnor
dorc, .sapphire, wine color, and pea
cock blue Tho bonnets arc small c 1
IKJtcs, but havo larger brims than tho
Alsacian bounds of tho summer, and
these brims have a rolle I edge that
forms a slight coronet. Tho eurtaiu
band below the velvet crown is of straw
about au inch wide. Theso are to be
trimmed with fancy feathers, birds and
velvet ribbon that is satin on the wrong
Round hats that havo a velvet crown
anil straw brim aro very lanro. but aro
not particular new in shapes. The
walking hat, as it is called, has a near-
lv straight brim about four inches wide,
slightly curved upward on each side,
and a high square crown of velvet.
Other hats have onh- ono side rolled up
in Gainsborough style. A bird au
naturcl with a torsa'do of- velvet or of
ottoman reps is tho trimming for these.
Tho fanc3' feathers that havo a real
bird's head with some of tho breast
feathers, and aro fancifully finished off
with long coq plumes, aro also stylish
Small birds arc imported in great
quantities for trimming bonnets and
round bats, and it is a sad sight to sec
tho meek ring-doves, with their sober
plumage, tho sea-swallows, merles,
pheasants, lophophorcs, penguins, and
evon tho pigeons, quails and partridges,
that havo been sacrificed for this pur
Tho newest trimming ribbons aro the
ottoman reps, of thick 3-ct soft quality-,
tho widths varying from" two inches to
ire or six.
Quaint pokes and sun-bonnets as well
as round hats are being worn in the
conntrj- by young ladies and misses.
They are made of batiste, cither ecru,
very light blue of the new shado called
old Sevres, ivory white, porcelain blue
and bronze. Tbo front pokes out beyond
tho face, protecting it like an old-time
sun-bonnet, and is made of many narrow
shirred puffs. Tho crown is full and
stands up slightly, and the qneer little
curtain falls low on the shoulders.
These are made to match the color of
the lawn or muslin dress, and cost $2.50
each. Round hats of shirred mull have
tho crown entirely covered with a
sqnare kerchief of printed mull, cither
with balls, polka dots, pansies, chrysan
themums or daisies. The edges of the
square are either scalloped or hem
stitched. This sqnare is laid plainly
over the crown in front, its edges rest
ing on the brim, reaching to its very
edge, with all the fullness drawn back
of the crown and knotted there, or tied
is a careless bow with pointed ends
showing. The simple way of using tho
coloredmnll squares that are sold for
forty cents up to one dollar is conven

of coarse straw that have lost their
freshnsss by the hard usage ef a

There was a man came to our town
to lecture a while ao. He hail been a

Rome and Niagara Falls and the North
Pole, and nch place, and father aidi
"Now. Jimmy, here's an opportunity
for 3'ou to learn something ami improve
)-our mind; go and take your mother and
do take an interest in something bedde
I went to the lecture. The man
about the Australian savnjrei
and their boomerang. He showed ui a
boomerang, which is a tick wth two
legs, ami an Australian will throw it at
a man. and it will go and hit him. and
come back of its own accord. Then he
told us about the way the Zulus throw
their asaegai-vrthal's" the r" ght wa3" to
spell it and.spcar an Englishman that is
mor'n ten rods' awa3' from them. Then
he showed a long string with a heavy
lead ball on each end, and atd the
South Americans would throw it at a
wild horse, mid it would wind around
the horse's legs, and lie itself into a
iKm'-knot. and then the Scuth Ameri
can would catch tl-e horae. Rut the
best of all was the account of a bull- ,
n u; .1 uuii- ,
fight which he aw in Spain, with the
(jiicctiasittiiiz on a throne, anil giving a
crownof everereens to the chief bull-
lighter. He said that bull-lighting was
.awfully cruel, and that he told us about
it to tfiat we might lx: thankful that we
are so much better than thonc dreadful
bpanish people, who will watch a bull
fight all day, and think it real fun.
The next day I told Mr. Tr.ivers '
about the boomerang, and he said it
was all true. Once there was an Aus
tralian savage in a circus, and he got
angry, and ho threw his boomerang at
a man who was in the third Mon- of a "
hotel. The boomerang went dow n one
street and up another, and into the ho- I
to! door, aud up .stairs, and knocked the
man on tho head, and came back the
same way right into the Australian sav
I was mi anx!ous to show father that I
had listened to the lecture that 1 made
a boomerang just like the one tho lec
turer had. When it was done, 1 went

lead balls tied on tho ends

than 1 did the cat, but 1 d.du't 'do any
harm except to Mr. Thompson's cook,
and sho ought to be thankful that it was
onh- her arm, for tho doctor s lid that if
the balls had hit her on the head thev
would hnvo broken it, and tho
mienrcs might have been serious,
It was a good while before I could
find anything to make an assegai out or;
but after hunting all over the house, 1
came across a lovely piece of bamIoo
about ten feet Ion '. an I iust as liirlit as
a feather. Then 1 got a big knife blade
that hadn't any handle to ft. and that
had been lung in father's tool chest for '
ever so long, and fastened it on tho end
of the hnniGoc, You wouldn't believe
. -".. .... ,..jv ! r
how splendidly I could throw that as
segai, onh the wind would take it. and
3-011 couldn't fell when you threw il
where it would brinir tin." 1 don't see
I-how the Zulus ever manaire to hit an
Englishman; but Mr. Travers says that
the Englishmen are all so made that 3011
can't ven- well miss them. And then
fierhaps the Zulus, when ihy want to
hit them, aim at some li'ng "else. One
day 1 was pra'-ticing with the assegai at
our barn door, making believe that it
was an Englishman, when Mr. Car
ruthcrs. tho butcher, drove by, and the
assegai came down and went through
his foot, and pinned it to the wagon.
Rut he didn't seo me, and I guess ho
got it out after a while, though I never
saw it again.
Rut hat tho loeturer taught us about
bull-lights was worse than ainthiuirclse.
Tom McGiuuis' father has a terrible
bull in the pasture, and Tom and I
agreed that we'd have a bull-light, only,
of eoursc, we wouldn't hurt the bull.
All we wanted to do was to show our
parents how much we had learned about
tho geography and habits of the
Tom MeCIinnis' sister Jane, who is
twelve 3'ears old, and thinks she knows
everything, said she'd ho tho Queen of
Spain, and give Tom and mo evergreen
wreaths. 1 got an old red curtain out
of the dining-room, and divided it with
Tom, so that wo could wave it in the
bull's face. Whon a bull runs after a
bull-fighter, the other bull-lighter just
waves his red ni"r, and the bull jroes for
mm ami lets the tirst bull-tighter escape.
The lecturer said that there wasn't any
danger so long as ono fellow would al
wa3s wave a red rag when tho bull ran
after tho other fellow, and of course we
l-rcttA nearly all the school camo
down to the pasture to seo our bull-tight.
The Queen of Spain sat on tho fence,
because there wasn't any other throne,
and tho rest of tho fellows and girls
stood behind the fence. The bull was
pretty savage; but Tom and I hail our
red nigs, and we weren't afraid of him.
As soon as we went into the pasture
the bull came for me, with his head
down, and bellowing as if he was out of
his mind. Tom rushed up and waved
his red rag, and the bull stopped run
ning after me, and went after Tom. just
as the lecturer said he would.
I know I ought to have waved my
red rag, so as to rescue Tom. but I was
so interested that I forgot all about it, and
the bull caught up with Tom. Ithould
think he went twenty feet right up into
the air, and as he came down he hit the
Queen of Spain, and knocked her about
six feet right against Mr. McGinnis,
who had come down to the pasture to
stop the fight.
The doctor says they'll all get well,
thotujh Tom's lees are all broke, and
his sister's shoulder is out of joint, and
Mr. McGinnis has got to ret a new set
of teeth. Father didn't do a thing to
me that is, with anything but he
talked to me till I made np aay mtad
that I'd never trv to lean, anything

Where the Ape is Honored.
The ancient Eg3r tians did not repre
sent the ape as a caricature of man. but
idealized it and paid it religious honors,
as the did to many other animals. A
cynoccphalii was kept and worshiped
in tho temple at Hcrmopolis, while a
ccrcopithccus was honored at Thebes,
Mummies of apes have been found in
both of these cities. The ape also has
its place in the hieroglyphics as the rep
resentative of the sound "en," and is
called cii in Coptic. The god Anubis,
who, at tho judgment of tho dead in
Amenti (or the land of death), put tho
heart of the. deceased in the balance of
justice in order to report the result to
Thoth, is figured with the head of a
pynocenhalus. or dog-faced baboon,
'ihoth himself general- appears asso
ciated with the attribute of the cyno
ccphalus, the emblem of the dog-star
The temple of Queen Hatasu, at Dcr-c
bahri, is adorned with inscriptions re
lating to a grand expedition into tt
balsam-bearing land of Punt, the Egy;
tian Ophir, in which the offerings scr.
b3 the King of that country are do
scribed: "The transports were Ioadci
to the full with tho wonderful products
of the land of Runt, and the various
building-woods of the godly land, with
heaps ol balsams of incense, with green
inconso-treos. with clwny-, with ivory,
adorned with gold from the land of
Aniu, with liquorice-wood, chefit-wood,
with frankincense, holy balsams and
eye-paint's with cynocenhalnscs and
baboons and grey-hounds, aad with
leopard-skins- Never was the like
brought to anv- Kinjr of Egypt since the
world has stood.'- According to
Rnigsch. the incense-trees stood oa the
decks of the vessels, and the apes, let
loose, gamboled in the rigging, to the
great delight of the sailors.
In the Indian Ramayana, where the
animals are praised as allies of Rama,
apes are depicted in groups, under the
direction of a King who obeys the nods
of Rama. They arc not, however. In

The pudding ranks in England as a
national dish, but the French will have
none of it. Il may bo found on the
cartes of the leading restaurateurs of
Paris, but it is not eaten b the French
customers of the place. A story
is told of one of tho early Kronen
mouarehs. who. when he entertained tho
English Ambassador, determined to re
gale him with a plum pudding. Tho
King obtained tho recipe and gave it to
his cook, but forgot to tell him to boil it
in a cloth. 'Ihe consequence was the
pudding came to tho table in a tureen
and was served up as a soup to tho
chagrin of tho monarch and the disap
point of the Ambassador.
As ono ly ono tho ancient landmarks
of cookery disappear it is safe to pre
dict that the boiled pudding will go with
them into the obliv on of cranes and
xt-hook. Tho boys and girls whose
palates ued to bo" tickled with grent

ter puddinir. The following rules for
boiled puddings are as nprojios to day
a- they were one hundred 3cars ago
when they were formulated. "First, the
bag or cloth must bo soaked tlioroughry
in hot water, wrung and cooled and tho
inside well dredged with Hour, in order
thai the pudding shall not slick to tho
cloth when it is laketi out.
2. The water iu iho pot must bo al
wa3s Udiing when ihe pudding is put
in. and continue tho whole time, other
wise tho water would ?oak into the cloth
and mnko tho j udding heavy.
Jk As the water boils awa3 renlenih
the pot from another kett'e of boiling
water. Tl c tea kettle is general the
most convenient and ready for uc
4. Never replenish with cold water,
as that will make tho pudding heavy.
A fifth rule might be added with good
eflect; always put a plate of old earthen
ware in the pot before putting the pud
ding in so that it will not burn to tl u
bottom of the pot. Puddings should be
turned 113- sticking a fork'lightly in'o
the cloth and flopping them over when
about half done.
English plum puddingy is so rich that
it will keep six or eight months and
make the journey across the Atlantic
twice without detriment. A genuine
English plum pudd ngis prepared one
dav and boiled on the next; sometimes
it is boiled two hour on one da3 and
four on tho next. Its proportions arc
a baker's loaf without the crrnt. so iked
in milk, ten eggs, two pounds stoned
and pared raisins, two pounds currants;
all the fine spices in proportions of a
teaspoon ful each; two nutmegs, lemon,
chopped orange peel, teaspoonfnl soda,
half pound citron cut in fine strips, and
a glass of tart jelly, one pound black
sugar. This quantity will make two
medium sized puddings. Tho sauce is
made of bnttcr and sujrar boiled togeth
er and thickened with fiour or corn
starch, spiced and flavored to taste.
Here is a plainer recipe. Haifa pound
of beef suet, half a pound of raisins,
half a pound of dried currants, one cup
of sour milk, two-thirds teaspoon of sal
