NEW SLAVERY AT CAPE TOWN.
Ilcehamin Prlmmem Arc HoiikM )
The "slnve m:irt," judg-ititf from tin
article lu tin- (Vipc Times, appears to
be definitely established In. Cape Town,
u.iys Hie London Chronicle. 'Hie slaves,
of course, are the lfvchtintiii prisoners,
and although there Is no Mitftfcstlon
tlint these wretched creatures arc tr-ut-cd
-with harshness Avhlle in tlie v
ernment care, they are elearly coiisid
ored and disposed of preelsely as if
thev -were mere bales of irood.s or ent-
tie. Careful watch anil ward is kept
over tlieui and the writer says that
"It is not easy to pass the strict guard
nt. the gate unless you are a fanner
eonilng to piek your liilsir.
Hound three sides of the square court
ard men and women are squatting im
passively or sUmdlng eliattering in
knots. They are ill-Hud and e.eeeding
ly Ill-favored, but not ill-iiourKlieil.like
the ilrst batch of skeletons tlmt came
down to town. A child here and there
is even bonny. There I no very obvl
ous dejection. The nearest to it is a
moody, passive look."
The fanners, too, quite enter Into
the spirit of the "slaw mart." They go
round the market scanning the men
and "sorting out those- of the largest
sic." as did the walrus and the car
penter with Mic oysters. The natives
cnt expressionless, sidelong glances at
their possible masters while lhe, are
b mg appraised like goods in a store.
Jl.iiug selected one or two from a
group, the fanmer is chagrined at be-
iig told by ii harried ollii'ial: "Wccan
i ot break this lot for you," as if the
knot of negroes were a dinner service
or a suite of bedroom furniture. Hack
goes the fanner and looks the natives
up ami down again, and at length de
cides "to take the lot." When the na
tives are duly indentured for live. eur
their master unhitches his earl and
mules, outside,, bundles his "labor" in
and driven his bargain home.

i member of the canine ftitui l has
itci m more persistently maligned than
the bulldog. Writers who have no iuti
mite knowledge of the dog and hisnt
triinites liave described him as stupidh

him as a sort of semi-wild lua-t.
til tli' general nubile has come to look
upon him as dangerous. sa,s Outing.
"(live a dog a bad name," is an old
saw and perhaps a true one, but w lien it
is applied to the bulldog, it is manifest
ly unjust. Writer, too. haw fallen into
grave error in claiming that the bull
dog is deficient not only innlTeetion, but
No greater proof of the falsity of tlie
latter could be given than was wit
nessed at the late Westminister Ken

exhibited his trained dogs, with the
bulldog Nick performing all sorts of
wonderful feats, especially that of
walking u tight rope, ami, when in tin
center of it, turning round ami retrac

Stotiehenge. who is considered one of
the greatest of canine scientists, claims
that, the bulldog's brain is relatively
larger than that of the spaniel, which
dog is generally considered to be tluv
most intelligent, of the canine race,

The Klondike Is responsible for the
concoction of a chemical compound
which promises to revolutionize mining
methods in cwr.v section where winter
puts a stop to operations every ,ear.
The nature of the chemical is a s(.
cret, which the inventor will divulge to
no one. The chemical is simple and
chean, however, and win be manufac
tured upon the ground where the mine
is located. The discoverer will locate
several mines in the spring, and divel
op them the following summer and
winter. No matter how cold the atmos
phere, it will not Interfere with the
thawing properties of the wonderful
'Hie value of pucIi a discovery Is
readily apparent. It practically con

tretne temperatures and does awav
with the necessity of thawing tlie
ground by the slow ami tedious meth
od of building Hits and allowing them
to thaw out the. froen earth, The in
ventor estimates t lui t the chemical will
melt the earth to the depth of two
feci. Continual application of the llui.l
will allow the miners tu keep continu

A story gws the rounds that a few
da.vs ago Mr. CaKitiilr-Pirierund his son.
while cycling between Sens and Monte
rcau, stopped at n village inn and asked
for lunch. "Nothing to give you," said
the landlady, "but sardines and eggs."
"Can you not add n beefsteak'.'" "Im
possible. If we had a cycle and some
body to ride It 1 could send for thcim-nt,
but you know that it would take an
hour to go to tlie butcher's and back."
"If ihat's your only reason," said the
ex-president, "we can overcome the dif
ficulty." In a moment be ami Master
