BAYARD TAYLOR IN EGYPT.
Central African Pigmies.
(Bayard Tavlor's C irretondence of tha New
The Khedive "spoke of a race of
pigmies which had been discovered
in the very heart of Central Africa,
beyon the land of Xyam-Xyams,
and advised us to look at two na
tives of the tribe which had recent
ly reached Cairo. On leaving -the
Palace of Abdeen, therefore, we
wide t jrove imniediately to the Palace
ilmve imniediatelv to the Palace
tffdemMul the 2sile, near Boulak, where they
ice in every branch .f are now kept. On making inquiry,
tue soldiers in tue inner court im
mediately pointed out two small
boys (apparently), wearing the fez,
and dreaded in jackets and trowsera
of white wool. I should have taken
them for children of some Ethio
pian tribe at the first glance.and was
not satisfied, until after a clobe in
spection, that one of them was a
full grown man.
Dr. Schweinfurth saw some na
tives of the tribe among the Xyam
Nyams, but did not reach their
countrv, which lies beyond that of
the latter, and" therefore south of the
Equator probably from 300 to 500
miles west of the central part of Al
bert 2yanza. But after Schwein-
traveler Miana, whose name, carved
upon n tree near Fatiko, will be re
membered by all readers of
Speke's and Baker's nar
ratives, started on a new
journey of exploration from which
ue was uesunea never to return.
On the Cth of November lasf some
boats reached Khartoum with the
journals and collections from Miaui,
who died in a country called Mon
bootoo. Thee were taken 03- the
Governor of Khartoum, and three
pigmies, who were supfra&etl to be
slaves, were temporarily imprisoned.
When the intelligence reached
Cairo, the Khedive ordered Miani's
papers and collections to be given to
the Italian consul, and the pigmies
to be &ent to him. One of them, a
woman died on the way; the other
two reached here a few weeks ago.
They are the firt of their race which
have ever bocn seen outside of Cen
tral Africa. The Khedive, who
gave me thee particulars, seemed
much interested in the people, and
probably intends to ue them, if
they survive, as a medium of future
intercour.-o with their tribe.
The soldiers brought the pigmies
forward for our inspection. They
came, half willintrlv. half with an
air of defiance, or of protest against
the superior strength which sur
rounded them. A tall Diuka, from
the White Xile, blacker
than charcoal, who accom
panied them, was one of Miani's
men. Ho spoke a little Arabic,
and I was thus able to get a little
additional information through him.
He assured me that the pigmies
were called Xaam; that their coun
try was a journey of a year and a
half from Khartoum (probably tho
time occupied I 3' a trading expedi
tion in going thither and returning),
aud that the place from which they
came had the name of Takatikat.
Tho taller of the two pigmies, Tub-
bul by name, was 20 years old; tho
younger, Kara, only 10 or 11. '
The little fellow looked at me
with bright, questioning, steady
eyes, while 1 examined and
measured them. Tubbul was 4G
inches in height, thalegs being 22
Inohos, and the body with the head.
34, which is a somewhat better pro
portion than is usual in savage
iribes. Head aud arms Vere nuke
symetrical, but the spine curved in
remarkably from the shouldersto
the hip-joint, throwing out tlio
abdomen, which was already much
distended, probably from their diet
of beans and bananas. Yet the
head was erect, the shoulders on
the line of gravity, and. there was
no stoop in the posture of the Ijqdy,
ai in tho South African bush
men. Tubbul measured 26 inches
around the breast and 28 around the
abdomen ; his hands and feet were
coarsejy formed, but not largo, onlv
the 'knee-joints being disprd--rortionately
thick and clumsy.
The facial angle was fully up to the
average; there was a good develoi
ment of the brain, line intelligent
eyes, and a nose so flattened that
in looking down tho forehead from
above, one saw only the lips pro
jectjiiir behind it, 'J'lie nqstrjs were
astonishingly wide and square; the
complexion was that of a dark mu
latto. The boyKaral was 43 inches high,
with tho same general proportions.
Both had woolly hair, cut short in
front, but covering tho crown with
a circular cap of crisp little rolls.
Tubbul's age showed itself, on nearer
examination, in his hands, feet and
joints, as well as his face. He had
no beard, but was evidently of virile
years. I lifted him from the ground
and should not estimate his weight
at more than 05 pounds. The sol
diers stated that neither of "tho two
had learned more than a few words
of Arabic, hut that they talked a
great deal to each other in their own
language. However, when ordered
to speak Tubbul turned aud walked
away. A soldier seized and drew
him back, whereupon he stood still
and sullen in his former place. At
a recent meeting of the Egyptian
Institute it tyus stated that the lan
guage of these pigmies lias no re
semblance to that of any other in
The country of Xaam, of Takkat
ikat, or whatever may b Its correct
name, is reported to be an equato
rial table-land, covered with low,
dene thickets in winch the pig
mies hide. Tho Khedive told me
that they were quite warlike, and
by no meaijs te&picaho foos tq th.oir
largo negro neighbors, since they
are active as apes and difficult to
find among their native jungles.
Dr. Schweinfurth supposes them to
be the pigmies mentioned by Hcro
dous. The Darwinians will hardly
find an intermediate race between
man and monkey, in them. Their
curious physical peculiarities, espec
ially the cur-fiaturu of the spine, the
wide mouth, Avith flat but distinctly
marked lip and the squareness aud
breadth of the nostrils are not of a
similar character. In fact, they
look less like tho chimpanzee than
several of the tall aud athletic negro
"When I was on the White Xile,
in 1832, the Xyam-Xyams were
spoken of by the people as a fright
ful race of cannibals, with taih. Xo
one had ever seen them ;he very
name was a terror to the natives of
Soudan and an obstacle to the
traveler. Xor their country has
been readied andpartiallyexplored,
and specimens of the race have ven
tured even as far as Khartoum.
Tho pigmjes prove to be far more
Interesting than they, from an eth
nological point of view, and we
shall eertainly soon learn more of
them. I am not aware that any
account of the race has yet been
published in Europe or America.
That man lteavis L.. U. has
called another capital-noving con
vention to meet in October; dele
gates to pay their own expenses.
He is satisfied with either Duluth
or St. Louis, but, in view of his re
cent lawsuit with a lady whom he
tried to swndle in the latter named
city, would prefer the former us a
quieter location. What a savage
delight some people will take In
writing this man's obituary one of
those days! - '
The Coming Harvest-
From the San Francisco Chronicle
For the past few years California
has been gaining the reputation of a
great wheat country, but the coming
harvest 3ear of 1 87-1-75 will not only
more truly entitle it to the term
than ever before, but will place it
ahead of any other wheat growing
country on tho face of the globe.
The late rains have rendered a fail
ure of the crop impossible,- and as
there are two million acres sown,
and the averasre yield in California
Is twenty bushels per acre, it is cer
tain that there will be a yield of
forty million bushels, or twenty-five
million centals. Taking these
figures, there Tvill, after deducting
five millions centals for local con
sumption, seed etc., remain nine
teen million centals for exportation.
This is nearly as much as the whole
quantity exported bv the United
States last year to Great Britain.
And it is about twice as large as the
exports from Russia for the same
time. Short crops cut down the ex
port surplus of Russia somewhat but
making all allowances, it is a sig
nificant fact that California will
within the next year be ahead of
the country that has been hitherto
known as the granary of Europe.
It will take 650 ships to carry
away this vast surplus of bread
stuff, and for this service there will
certainly be paid $19,000,000. All
this is very gratifying, and predicts
good to all classes of the population.
As time rolls on, and as we grow
even larger orops, it would be wise
to spend some of the freight money
in the establishment of manufac
tures for which the coast is suited,
and to keep more of the wheat at
home to feed an increasing army of
Siamese Twins in Nature-
Mr. H.. G. Cardwell has a double
tree on his farm which presents the
same anomaly in vegetablo.that the
Siamese did in animal nature.
There are two distinct stems stand
ing ten feet apart and joined to
gether at a pbint twenty feet from
tho ground "by a ligament, if we
may so call it, passing from th
body of one into that of the other.
The ligament is uniform in size, and
it is impossible to tell from which
tree it is a branch. This lusus na
turoz is a strong argument in favor
01 capital pumsnment, forming a
natural gallows, jerfect in construc
tion and beautiful in design. Shel-y(-fiy-)
One midsummer day, when JEo
lus slept and tho thermometer stood
in the nineties, a lady entered a
store not a thousand off and in
quired for parasols. The obliging
proprietor spread out before her
samples of a large and varied stock.
"Haveyou-any of this shade of a
size larger?" said the lady. The
size larger was produced. " I think
on the whole I prefer the size smal
ler." The size smaller was present
ed. "Have you any of this size of
a lighter shade of blue? " The re
quired shade was brought out.
"Haven'tyouany of this kind with
a crooked handle?" The shade
with the erooket' handle appeared.
" Have you any with the crooked
handle not quite so heavy ? " said
the lady, and so continued her in
quiries for every conceivable size,
shade, and weight possible in the
line of parasols. After nearly an
hour had been thus consumed the
fair chopper gathered up her hand
kerchief and glove, and movedfor
the door. "Can't I sell you a para
sol ? " inquired the exhausted pro
prietor. "O dear, no," replied the
lady, "I was merely inquiring the
prices. I am going into mourning
and have one for sale. Xcw Bed
