An explorer describes a central Af
rica forest; "Ten miles west of the
hike begins the only piece of real vir
gin forest met with. It Is throughout
a dense virgin foiest and almost Im
penetrable. It consists of very large
trees of tunny varieties. The upper
parts are festooned with a light gray
ish green moss hanging In long stream
ers and giving to the forest a wry fan
tastic appearance. When these long
streamers are agitated by a storm they
make the whole forest, seen from one
of the hills near, look like a rough sea,
Again, when the sun Is vertical the
whole forest appears dark, but when
the sun Is low the general effect on
die sunny side Is curiously light.
"All the trees are bound together
with Innumerable lianas and creeping
plants, llctwccn the steins Is a dense
tangled mass of lesser vegetation. The
forest stands to a great extent In tho
"water and mud of the swamp. A
singular feature of It Is the abruptness
with which It begins and ceases on tho
plain. The grassy swamp or open
country reaches to the mighty wall of
trees, which continue in the same den
slty from one side to the other. There.
Is no smaller wood or ncrub outside
formtug a transition from the open
plain to the forest.
"Inside, the silence and gloom nro
accentuated by the apparent absence
of animal or bird life. There are some
herds of buffaloes that make It a head
quarters, elephants visit It occasional
ly, monkeys and parrots are somctlmca
seen, and a harnessed antelope now and
then appears at the edge, but the gen
eral impression left Is one of lifeless-nesB."

A remarkable mode of Incarceration
Is practiced by the hornbllls, blrda
with Immense bills and horny crests,
which inhabit southern Asia, the Ma
layan Islands and central and southern
Africa. In most If not all species tho
brooding female Is walled up In a hol
low tree and fed by her mate.
She remains confined In her prison
until the eggs are hatched, and lu somo
species until the young birds are able to
fly. Meanwhile the mother has become
temporarily Incapable of flight, as sho
hns molted, or at lenst shed all her wing
feathers, during her captivity. But the
male is indefatigable in providing for
his family and Is said to work so hard
that he is reduced almost to'a skeleton
nt the end of the brooding season.
According to the theory of many na
tives, the female Is Imprisoned to pre
vent her neglecting her duty of brood
ing, and If she has been unfaithful ot
negligent her mate closes the little
window of her cell and abandons her
to n painful death by suffocation. Tho
time story, perhaps, Is this: The female
walls herself In so that she cannot fall
from the nest after losing her feathers
and also to protect herself from ene
mies. The building material Is her own
excrement. This version Is less poet
loul thnn the other, but It Is probably
nearer the truth. It Is supported by
the statement that the female liberates
herself as soon as tho young birds aro
well grown, so that her prison Is less

OrlKln of Italic.
Italic letters were first used about tho
year 1500 by Aldus Manutlus, n Vene
tian printer. lie observed the many
Inconveniences resulting from the vast
number of abbreviations which were
then so frequent among the printers
that a book was dltileult to understand.
A treatise was actually written on the
art of reading a printed book and thus
addressed to the learned. Hy Introduc
ing the italic letter he contrived an ex
pedient by which these abbreviations
might be entirely got rid of and yet
books suffer little increase in bulk. He
dedicated his Invention to the Italian
states; hence the name. It has ulso
been distinguished by the name of tho
Inventor and called the Aldlue. Tho
first book printed In Italics was an edi
tion of "Virgil" printed at Venice by
Aldus In ir.01.

One of the most famous entrances In

It was through this portal for several
centuries that traitors were conducted

the most familiar of these unfortunate
