said, that frequently men who had
been inmates when boys now visit the
institution with their wives and show
them around the workshops and are
proud of having had the opportunity of
attending such a school. It should
not be considered a disgrace for a boy
to be an inmate of such an institution,
because it is never the fault of the

Whistling is thought very unlucky

The most interesting point on the

and the Duke of Wellington had gar.
risoned it with the Second Brigade of
Guards, under Major-General Sir John
Byng. the Light Companies of the
First Brigade; the Light Companies of
the Coldstream, and a detachment un
der Lieut-Col. Macdonnell. These
were variously distributed in the cha
teau, the farmyard and gardens. A
strong wall which surrounds the farm
on all sides was pierced with holes
for musketry, and Wellington erected
a scaffolding Inside the orchard, so
that the men could fire over ihe wall.
The whole of Reille's corps, consist
ing of 30.000 men, some of the finest
fighters in the French army, was con'
centrated on Hougoumont farm, which
Napoleon hoped to take quickly by
storm. As a matter of fact, the po
sitlon was aever taken, and the
French army tried every possible
means throughout that fatal July 18th
to capture it. Wellington threw re
inforcements into the place from time
to time. Itis estimated that the
woods and gardens surrounding the
farm were taken and recaptured not
less than nine times. The allied forces
lost in this attack on Hougoumont
twenty-eight officers and nine hun
dred men, while various authorities
give the loss of the French at ten
thousand. Lord Dudley said in one of
his letters, speaking of Hougoumont
farm: "This Belgian yeoman's garden
was the safeguard of Europe, and the
destiny of mankind turned upon the
possession of his house." Battlefield
guides point to a well in the interior
of the gardens down which Napoleon
is said to have thrown 300 of his
wounded who were beyond the means
of aid. A little chapel, also within the
grounds, is thought by the peasantry
to have been the scene of a miracle.
Though Napoleon set fire to the build
ings and chapel, the fire stopped at
the foot of a crucifix, which is shown
to-day with much veneration. The
VISITS CWRET) THE "TILVES"
"l have discovered an excellent rem
edy for my old maid blues," said the
bachelor girl. "I have times like any
other unmarried girl of being discon
tented with single blessedness and of
wishing that I had a home and a dou
ble life. Now, when I feel one of these
moods coming on I go straight to
spend the afternoon with some young
married friend, and I return home hap
py and contented with my lot.
"Maybe I'm wicked, but when I hear
the baby whining and see it taking up
its mother's time when she wants to
read and sew I think of my little den,
where I can read all night with no one
to disturb me. When I find I can't in
terest her in any jolly talk about the
theaters or what is going on in the
world, but must confine my conversa
tion to the price of coal, the cost of
living, the baby's new tooth and hub
by's ills, I fairly thrill with joy to
think I can soon go to my bachelor
quarters and have the companionship
of other bachelor girls in the apart
ment. I know I don't have all the com
forts my married friends do, but when
they cook they are obliged to have al!
sorts of utensils around and stir up
trouble for themselves generally;
while my cooking is confined to a chaf
ing dish and its few accessories. If I
must confine myself to creamed oys
ters, and such menus, I have six dishes
j lure io wasn, wnue my marneu menus
have about fifty.
"I took supper with my dearest mar
ried friend last evening and proposed
that we go to the theater afterward.
But she couldn't because Alfred
that's her husband never liked to
have her out when he was going to be
home. My next proposition was that 1
read to her while she sewed, but she
said my reading would disturb the
baby. I suggested a game of pitch, but
she couldn't find the chips because the
baby had hid them. So I decided to go
home. That seemed to please her, for
she yawned and said she had to go to
bed early because the baby waked her
at 5 o'clock every morning.
"I fairly tore home and I wanted to
hug everything in my room. Of course,
there was no person to greet me, but
there was my Maltese cat curled up in
comfort on my couch, and in the next
room were two of the dearest girls in
the world with whom I could chat if I
felt lonely. I made fa delicious rabbit
and called in my neighbors, and at 12
o'clock I went to bed, glad that there
was no baby to wake me at 5 o'clock."

Mr. Kenney has actaally escaped from
the paralytic's fate to which he seemed a.
short time ago hopelessly doomed. Tha
saransug report has been f ally verified
and some important details secured ia a
personal interview with the recent saf
ferer. "The doctor," said Mr. Keaaey, "lei
e that if I wanted to live any length
f time I wcnld have togivr ap work al
together, and he told my fnttnds that
tne paralysis which had begna would iu
time involve my whole buriv."
" Just how were yoia airlifted at this
time?" Mr. Keiuiev was asked.
" Well. I had first hot. aad then cold
and clmiutiy feeling, aud at times my
body felt as if needles were being (duck
into it. These sensations wrt followed
by terrible paius, and again I would fanvn
no feeling at all, but a numbness would
come over me, aud I would not be able to
move. The most ugnuiziug tortures came
from headaches and a pain iu the spine.
" Night after night I could not get uy
natural sleep and my system was wrecked
by the strain of torturing pains and the
effect of the opiates I was forced to take
to induce sleep. As 1 look back on the
terrible suffering I endured during thin
period I often wonder how I retained my
reasou through it all.
"But relief came eniefcly when I
was induced to try Dr. Williams' link
Pills for Pale People. The very first box
seemed to help me. and seven boxes maito
me entirely well. There cau be no doubt
about the thoroughness of my cure, for I
have worked steadily ever siiice and that

Camel riding in the desert of Sahara
is not so very fatiguing, after one has
learned how. A veteran traveler in
that district describes the process:
"Each riding camel has a bridle, cr
rather halter, of plaited leather like an
ordinary halter, and the camel is guid
ed as one would a horse if riding him
with one rein only. The saddle is a
most elaborate affair. To adjust prop
erly one on a camel's hump is an art
extremely difficult to master. First, two
cushions of leather, stuffed with grass
straw, are placed on the animal's
hump, and on these is set the saddle.
The latter consists of two wooden
forks, one in front and one behind, con
nected by a side board; above this is
placed the seat of the saddle, which is
built like a square saucer. The tops of
the wooden forks rising in front and
behind form two saddle horns, and
once one has negotiated his way into
the 'saucer and installed the feet and
leg3 by letting them, from the knee
downward, hang over the front, one is
pretty safe from falling out. Cushions
and rugs placed in this saucerlike de
pression add to the comfort. The sad
dle is secured by a wide girth and also
by a shoulder-strap and girth at the
back that takes the place of a crupper.
"There are. of course, no stirrups,
the foot merely hanqing over the front.
After one has learned to avoid an oc
casional die; in the middle of the back
from the hindmost horn and has be
come accustomed to the weight of the
legs hanging over the front, camel rid
ins is very comfortable and far less
tiring than horseback riding, especial
ly as one's position can be varied in
many ways by riding side-saddle or
crossing the legs on the camel's neck
and so forth. The Ion?, swinging gait
is fairly easy and one can move about
on a camel's hack in a manner that
would startle any ordinary horse.
"On the saddle are carried a pair
of leathern saddle-bags, wherein I car
ry books, maps, instruments, cart
ridges, lunch and the like. From the
horns of the saddle are hung rifle,
field glasses, prismatic compass and
water bottle. Altogether it is a pretty
complete outfit and only equaled by a
Chinese chair for convenience in trav
eling when one wishes to hunt and
map at the same time."

must bring back to Dr. Francis Galton,
its one-time secretary, thoughts of his
own journeys in Africa, when that
land was a dark continent indeed. The
recollection will be further strength
ened by the stories of Congo atroci
ties. In Dr. Galton's own experience there
occurred a tragedy in the wilds a
tragedy in which the Hereros figured.
He tells the story in his book on trop
ical South Africa. When a day and a
half from his caravan he came across
a huge tree burning in the wilderness.
From the ashes it was evident that the
fire had been in progress for a great
time. There was no living soul in
sight, but there was a curious signa
ture, as it were, upon the sand. To
the Sherlock Holmes of finger-prin-.
