Want Place of the World.'
Tbo Russian explorer Prejcvalsky
said, after his rcccut journey to North
era Thibet, that an enormous amount
of animal lifo was supported by tho
scanty herbage growing on theso
bleak half-aterilo plahid that form tho
highest plateau in the world, some 13,
OXW feet above the Bca. He said tho
wild yak there must number millions
and that a full-grown j'ak weighs from
1.C00 to 1,800 pound. Nature's chem
istry evolves theso great masses of flesh
from tho poor hcrbago of a region so
lofty that ita lakes are frozen over until
nearly June, though they aro 600 miles
nearer the equator than we are.
Explorers toll us that not only does
animal life abound, but that man can
lire in eomo of the most desolate parts
of tho globe. It L a mistake to sup
pose that tho Sahara Desert is merely a
sandy waste. Much of it lacks not so
much cultivable land as industrious
bands to mako tho vast expanse of
withered oaaea blossom again. Tho
MuBscIman sect known as the Seuous
lans has for years been digging wells,
Irrigating the laud, and turning many
hundreds of barren acres into gardens.
Twenty-four years ago It planted its
headquarters in tho desert near tho
western border of Egypt, bu;lt reser
voirs, begau plantations, erected con
vents, and now a population of 8,000
ieopl live at Jarabub, where tho fcoil
ian been restored to fertility by theii
labors. There aro large areas in the
Sahara that need only rain or irrigation
to cover them with verdure. Through
these regions pass tho caravan routes,
along which the camels engaged in
the Saharau commence bear their bur
dens. Mr. Anderson, tho civil engineer, whr.
last year completed sixteen years of ex
ploration in South Africa, between the
Orange and the Zambesi rivers, saye
that the ra;n that falls for a few weeks
cverv year in the great region known as
the jialahara desert covers tho black

Warned Agatnnt Persian Reception.
When the Secretary (Bayard) told
him that, above all other things, ho
must steer clear of a public reception
by the Persians, Judgo Hanna, for tho
hundredth timo, looked puzzled, and,
for the thousandth timo duriug tho
week, said to himself: "Well, l'md d."
The Secretary explained:
Several years ago, when tho Persian
Mission was created, a man named
llcnjamia of Ohio was sent out to draw
the $.r00 per year aud to look after the
missionaries. The Persians were de
'ighted over the recognition given thera
by the United States Government. To
have a resident Minister was magnified
by them into a high honor. Mr. Ben
jamin was met ouisido of Teheran aud
conducted into the city with all tho
pomp and ceremony of "a groat proces
sion, in which thero were camels and
elephants aud triumphal cars enough
to outfit a score of modern menageries.
Mr, Benjamin was banqueted and" feted
in grand style. After a time ho settled
down to the humdrum routiuc of hear
ing missionaries' stories. One day a
Persiau diplomat walked into tho Lega
tion offices, and with Oriental politeness
presented to the astonished Minister a
bill for the procession ami tho enter
tainment given him. The items footed
up over $o.000. Poor Mr. Benjamin
received the account, aud. with forced
composure, told the diplomat it should
receive attentiou. Lie cot the location
together ami asked for advice. Nobody
could respond. Perhaps tho unfortun
ate Minister wept over the bill. Prob
ably he prayed over it. Undoubtedly
he wished he had never left Ohio. At
length, in despair, he forwarded to the
State Department tho terrible docu
ment, Ta:ro was more consultation
and liberal abuse of the Persian idea of
hospitality Tho upshot was an appro
priation tjrn the contingent fund, tak
ing the greater part of it to pay for Mr.
Benjamin's reception. For the rest of
ihat year the department was run with
due regard to the fact that this Persian
investment necessitated reduction of in
cidental expenses to the lowest possiblo
The Secretary told Judgo Hanna tho
whole story, aud, in concluding, said ho
trusted that the new Minister would
now appreciate tho imperative necessity
of getting into Teheran without an es
cort of elephants and camels, and that
he would, with Jeffcrsoniau, simplicity,
decline to be made a lion by the. Per
siaas as the expense of his own Govern
meat. -Washington Dispatch.

Paul Boyton's prank in placing a
dummv torpedo again.st tho BritL-h war
ship Garnet in New Yoik harbor brings
to mind Sergt. Lee's attempt to blow up
Lord Howe's ilagiip, tho Kagle, in tho
same waters iu 1776. He ued a torpedo-boat
invented by iJavid Btishnell.
afterward a captain in the patriotic
armj. It had been tried with success
experimentally, and gave promise of
being useful in serious warfare. Tho
lirst opportunity for such ue occurred
when tho British tleet took possession
of New York harbor. The Bushnell
boat was more like a barrel than a boat.
It was of oak. iron banded, and only
large enough for one per.-on. hen
floating upright, the navigator's head
was a littlo above the level of the wa
ter. By means of two force pumps,
worked" by the occupant's feet, the ves
sel could be made to sink or rise in the
water by forcing water out or in, and
so changing its specific gravity. Its
progress horizontally was governed by
two revolving paddles in front, turned
oy a crank inside. The torpedo w as
fastened to tho back of the boat by a
screw, the release of which set in mo
tion a clock connected with a gun-lock
and Hint. After the predetermined in
terval of time had elapsed, the clock
would strike and ignite the powder.
The torpedo carried by Lee against
the E".gle was charged with 150 poumls
of powder (some say 130 pound), and
the clock was sot to explode the charge
in thirty minutes after the torpedo was
placed. Lee was towed to the neigh
borhood of the licet by r. party in w hale
boats, and then proceed.Ml to attack the
tleet alone, lie succeeded in reaching
the Eagle, a sixty-four guu ship, unde
tected, and speut a long time in a vain
attempt to Xtcu the torpedo to her
bottom with hooks and screws, a band
of iron at the edge of the copper
sheathing proving an especially sonous
obstacle. As davlirht approached ho
was compelled to le;tve the tleet and re
turn to the city. Off Governor s ulacd
he was intercepted by a British targe,
when, to avoid capture, he explooed
his torpedo, es -sipin .r from his pursuers
during the panic which tiic explosion
excited. It the torpedo had been pro
vided with 5. strong magnet, the strip
of iron which thwarted him would hae
insured the success of his undertaking,
and the use of torpedoes in naval war
fare might have been hastened half a
century. -etic:fxic American.
