THEY FELT THE LION'S BREATH.
The Adventures ml Three Children aad a
I whispered to the other children to
lie still, because we had no place to
hide in, nor was it any use to climb a
tree, for the California lion will climb
like a cat So we saw the lion finish
his meal on our ox. It grew very light
near sunrise, before he took any notice
of us, where we sat under the ox-cart
As soon as he saw us he walked up very
close, with curious, wondering expres
sion on his face, and went all about the
cart, looking us over, and making a
purring sound. We sat close and had
our arms about one another, but we did
not say a word. He then came up so
close that I felt his breath on me, and
finally he put his nose against my an
kle. I had no stockings on, only home
made shoes, and his nose felt very
strange, and made me expect to be
eaten up at once. But I thought it best
to lie still and not cry out
After what seemed a long time, -the
lion went back and lay down by the
dead ox, about a hundred feet distant,
keeping his eyes on us most of the time.
He sometimes walked around tho ox;
then he came off a little way to a spring;
then he came back and walked around
the cart At last he lay down again by
the ox, shut his eyes, and seemed asleep.
The sun was now high, and we weie
very hungry and thirsty, but when we
moved a little to rest our limbs the lion
opened his eye? and looked very bad.

morning, and until about the middle of
the afternoon, and the li'n lay under

Once in a few years an episode comes
to light which shows that the concep
tion of the Indian, at his best, which
has been made familiar by Cooper, was
not an extravagant one and which tend3
to bring the blood to the cheek of tho
white man who prides himself upon his
intellectual and moral superiority.
Then too, but more rarely, comes evi
dences that not all western men look
upon the Indian as a wild beast to be
butchered at the pleasure of any man
into whose power he may fall. Evi
dence in both of these directions is fur
nished in connection with a recent oc
currence in South Dakota. We have
the denunciation of a frontier paper to
prove that such wanten butchery of the
Indians as was once deemed proper is
now regarded as criminal, and the calm
and dignified proposal of a Sioux chief
to a government that is too lax in its
obligations, as to the punishment of of
fenders against the lives of the white
and the red alika The editorial from
the Pioneer, of Deadwood, S. D., is
worthy of reproduction, as it expresses
the opinion of the vicinage and shows
that there is truth in the claims that
She Indian is abused because he is an
Indian, while the wrongs of the white
man are righted because he is white:
Whither a higher civilization sharpens
a people's ideas of justice, may be ques
tioned. The Italian assassins at New
Orleans passed unscathed the ordeal of
trial according to the forms and strict
rules of a high civilization, only to meet
with a merited punishment at the hands
off men who for the time being willfully
trampled upon all the most cheerished
teachings of our boaated land ruled by
law. Few Tails, a kindly-hearted and
peaceable old man, while traveling
peaceably along a public highway,
whose only offense was that his skin
was coppered-hued, instead of white,
was shot to death, riddled, in fact, by
bullet by a band of concealed assas
sins, scarcely less bloodthirsty and
merciless than the Italiau banditti; his
poor old wife, wounded and bleeding,
driven, in the very midst of winter, into
the inhospitable, (gloomy and almost
impenetrable Bad Lands, where for
days she wandered, tortured by the
ever present agony of the never-healing
wounds, starvation gnawing at her
vitals, her throat parched and lips
swollen and cracked by the fierce thirst,
until through the mercy of the Red
God, blind, fainting, and delirious, she
staggered into the camp of the Sixth
Cavalry, seventy miles from the scene
of the assassination ; and as yet no step
has been taken by the authorities to
bring the perpetrators to justice. There
was a grim and savage, if not a pict
uresque and pathetic justice in the of
fer of that gallant and brainy Indian,
who, when Gen. Miles de
manded of him the surrender of Many
Horse and Leaves His Woman, the
former charged with the killing of
Lieut Casey, and the latter with the
killing of Herder Miller, replied, "No,
I will not snrrender them; but if you
will bring the white men who killed
Few Tails, 1 will bring the Indians who
killed the white soldier and the herder;
and right ont here in front of your tepee.
I will have my young men shoot the In
dians, and you have your soldiers shoot
the white men, and then we will be done
with the whole business; they were all
bad men." In this instance, again, the
savage idea of justice went straight to
the mark. Free Freiw.
A Good Voice.
The gift of one good voice, clear
enunciation, correct pronunciation, in
every family, would raise the enjoy
ment of home life 50 per cent, if such
valuation could be placed on so spiritual
a family possession ; the gain that would
result in the increase of general intelli
gence to each family is incalculable. It
seems a great pity that when so much
money is spent on accomplishment that
really minister to the student's develop
ment only, more attention is not given
to the very desirable accomplishment
of elocution not that the student may
recite in public, but that he or she may
read in private for the common develop
ment of the intelligence of the family.
The art of elocution has its true value
in conversation. How often bad in
flection, wrong emphasis, completely
'hides, if it does not pervert, the
speaker's meaning. Elocution is not a
superficial training, a mere effort at ef
fect; it is a training of the perceptions,
of intelligence; it is the effort to bring al
ways the true meaning by a clear under
standing of what was meant by the
declaration, the sentiment. No longer
is elocution a training of one sense
that of speech; it recognizes that gesturo
must bear its relation to the thing said ; it
recognizes that perfect harmony depends
on 1 erfect- health and applies methods
of training necessary to physical de
velopment "We cannot wear corsets,
or high-heeled shoes, or heavy skirts
taking our lessons," writes one bright
girl to another, who was making ar
rangements to take lessons with her
from a teacher in elocution. It is this
recognition of the dependence of the
mental on the physical condition that
makes elocution so valuable a part of
the mental training. And the healthy
sentiment which prevails, that it is no
longer an accomplishment for the plat
form only, but for the home, for society,
for the increasing of individual grace
and power, makes it as much a part of
every well-educated individual as a
knowledge of literature, art, or science.

Plagiarism of Sermons.
The Rev. Septimus Smith -was many
years ago Ticar of St. Cross, Neneham.
He made no secret at all of his habit of
buying ready-made sermons, anymore
tbas his fondness for old port, and of
whist-playing with leading parishioners
until midnight of every Saturday. He
was a kindly natured, easy-going man,
and was popular among his- equally
easy-goiig flock. One Sunday morn
lag, on going into the vestry after ser
vice, he found his old clerk in tears.
What's the matter, Jones?" inquired'
the Vicar, ".Oh, sir!" replied the
clerk, "this is a painful surprise for us
alL" "Surprise, Jones? What do you
mean?" "Your sermon this morning,
air. We "are all very sorry, and you
gave us no warning." "Sermon; Jones?
Sermon? What do you mean, man?"
"Why, air, your farewell sermon. Wo

quite true that that morning the Rev.
Septimus had actually read an old fare

Thirty or forty years ago says the
Richmond State, a New Orleans mob up
rose in behalf of a negro slave and
undertook to avenge his cruel treatment.
Not only this they pursued and would
have hanged the owner of the unfortu
nate slave. That owner was a beauti
ful woman, immensely wealthy, and the
giver of sumptuous entertainments.
The story Is one of the most thrilling in
the history of the city. It was whispered
that the lady in the case Ill-treated cer
tain of her slaves, kept them. chained
in a dungeon, and subjected them to
starvation. She was, however, a woman
of great wealth and influence, and man
aged to quiet these rumors.
A fire occurred on her estate, whether
started by some of the slaves or not is
not recalled. When citizens flocked to
the place and began to tear down the
burning building the awful, evidence of
the maltreated slaves met' their eyes.
One of the poor creatures was chained.
The fury of the mob was fearful. They
besieged the palace of the beautiful
woman, who, with unparalleled boldness,
ordered her coachman to drive to- her
door, dressed in her most brilliant cos
tume, and, with as much composure as
if she were taking her usual evening
drive, stepped in and directed her coach
man to whip up his horses. The mob
followed, but she distanced them. She
managed to make one of the ships in the
harbor and escaped to Paris.

The Hebrews say. "When the tale ot
bricks is doubled Moses comes." For every
burden some relief exists. Weary house
keepers otton find relief in the use of SA
POLIO. There has always been a doubt both
in tho United States and Great Britain
as to whether these two nations, bound
together by so many ties of kinship and
of common interest, were entitled to
describe one another as foreign. An
English court of law has, however, Just
issued a decree which definitely settles
this much disputed question. A lady
was left a legacy of some S20.000 last
Christmas, on the condition that she
marry neither a foreigner nor any one
of the name of Smith. The lady, how
ever, chose to wed an American, and
the executors of the will at once de
clared that she had forfeited the legacy
by marrying a foreigner. Tho defense
put forward that Americans were not
included in that category was overruled
by tho English court of probate, which
has decided ouce and for all that Ameri
cans are foreigners.

Most Central African explorers have
entered the continent from Zanzibar,
and have dnly impressed all their read
ers with the horrors of that first'150
miles' march through terrible jungle and
swamp before climbing the highlands ot
Usagara and Usambara to a better at
mosphere. Burton wrote more graphic
ally than any other traveler about these
dreary and dangerous .marches, which
are not likely to be often described in
the future, for the German East African
company has decided to spend 81,000,000
In building a railroad across these pesti
lential regions to the uplands of Usasa-bara.

Winter I was on a trip to the City -."
of Vicksburg,Miss.,whereI gotweU .
drenched in a shower of rain. I' .
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, hacking cough. This
tTrew worse every day, until I had
io seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschea's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse and worse and then the Grippe
came along and I caught that aoo
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
not two bottlesof German Syrup. I
tegan using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
