The Congo basin is the huntor'fl para
dise. Game is abundant, and royal
game it is. To the elephant must be
given the place of honor. And thither
went William Stamps Cherry, a Chicago
engineer, in search of the biggest game
he could find. As a sportsman of for
tune he Bhipped with the French, joining
the expedition in eupport of Marchand,
who was engaged in his bold effort to
forestsll the English in the valley o! the
Upper Nile, lie "cared nothing about
the English, or Feshoda, or King Mene
lik, or African politics;" what he want
ed was "to get into the country of big
game and sport." For nearly two years
he did little but hunt elephants. Then
he returned to America with a large col
lection of tusks and a most interesting
journal. It is from this record of his
observations and adventures that the
article, "Elephant Hunting in Africa"
(McClure's Magazine for October) is
drawn. In it Mr. Cherry tells of "My
First Hunt Almost My Last," "The
Red Elephant," "Jumbo's Big Brother,"
"Capturing a Youngster," "An Ele-
phant Ranch" and "Killing a 'Man-
The pack had many interesting pecu
liarities, but none more so thau the fact
that four of them climbed trees. Only
one of the hounds, little Jimmie, ever
tried the feat; but of the fighters, not
only Tony and Baldy but big Turk
climbed every tree that gave them any
chance. The pinyons and cedars were
low, multiforked, and usually sent off
branches from near the ground. In con
sequence the dogs could, by industrious
effort, work their way almost to the top.
The photograph of Turk and the bobcat
in the pinyon (page 423) shows them at
an altitude of about thirty feet above
the ground. Now and then a dog would
lose his footing and come down with a
whack which soundod as if he must be
disabled, but after a growl and a shake
he would start up the tree again. They
could not fight well while in a tree, and
were often scratched or knocked to the
ground by a cougar; and when the
quarry was shot out of its perch and
seized by the expectant crowd below,
the dogs in the tree, yelping with eager
excitement, dived headlong down
through the branches regardless of con
sequences. From "With the Cougar
Hound6," by Theodore Roosevelt, in
the October Scribner's.
In St. Nicholas for October, Henry
Hales writes of the ruby-throated hum
The humming-bird builds on the
upper side on a branch, a branch gen
erally about the size of the nest. The
nest is beautifully felted with fine white
vegetable down and studded on the out
side with fine lichene and minute specks
of bark like the branch itself.
They do not eeem to retire to seclud
ed places to build; they are as eccentric
in their choice of a nesting place as in
their nature and habits. Some suppose
their uests are near the gardens or vines
they visit; but that is not often the case.
A few magic vibrations of the wings,
and they are far away in a few seconds.
The last nest I found was on the outer
end of a branch of silver poplar that
hung over a public road; every carriage
top that passed under it was within a
few feet of the nest the last place in
the world where I should have expected
to find such a nest. I should not have
seen it except I was accidentally looking
up into the tree, and I saw, protruding
over the side of the nest, the long, fine
bill that happened just then to stir.
The nest might have been passed hun
dreds of times and been taken for a
small knot unless thus betrayed.
These birds lay but two eggs tiny
white morsels. The joung birds when
first hatched are curious little things,
and feed by inserting their bills in the
mouths and throats of their parents.
As the food of the parents is composed
of nectar nnd tine insects, it is easily
made ready for the little ores' tiny

What other statesman or what other
man of letters could have written, or
would have been asked to write, sym
pathetic studies of two such typical but
widely different Americans as bluff old
Tom Benton of Missouri, and the pol
ished Gouverneur Morris of New York?
Theodore Roosevblt alone, of all living
Americans, could penetrate to the com
mon secret of the greatness of these
contrasting types, and could reveal it.
His life in New York and his college
training at Harvard had brought him in
touch with the characteristics and the
environment of Morris, while his travels
in the west, his life on the plains, and
bis insight into frontier standarde and
conditions revealed to him those of Ben
ton. From a sketch of Theodore Roose
velt, in the American Monthly Review
of Reviews for October.
Ihe coming season The Century Mag
azine will be "A Year of American
numor." Contributions have already
been engaged from the best-known
American writers of humorous stories
and sketches, including Mark Twain, F.
P. Dunne ("Mr. Dooley"), Frank R,
Stockton, Oliver Herford, George Ade,
Edward W. Townsend ("Chimmie Fad
den"), Ruth McEnery Stuart, Gelett
Burgess, Tudor Jenks, Charles Battell
Loomis, Joel Chandler Harris and oth
ers. Attention will be paid during the
year to American humor of the past.
In the November Century Professor W.
P. Trent of Columbia university will
write "A Retrospect of American Hu
mor," for the illustration of which The
Century has produced portraits of nearly
two score of the beet known of the older
humorists, including "Petroleum V.
Nasby," John G. Saxe, "Q.K.Philander
Doesticks," "Sam Slick." and "Artemus
Ward." There will be during the year
a number of contributions from new
humorous writers, and articles reminis
cent of those of the past.
Little is thought and lees is known by
the average man concerning the lives
and aims of the 400,000 men and boya
who delve under the surface of the
earth in places of darkness and danger,
where hardly a day goes by without re
cording the death by falls of rock, coal
or slate of more than one unfortunate
miner. An article on this subject at
once impartial and vitally interesting is
contributed to Tbo Cosmopolitan for
October by John Mitchell, president of
the United Mine Workers of America,
whom every one rocaMa as the man who
organized the miners and carriod
through to a successful termination tho
great anthracite strike of 1S90.
