In contrast to some uorthurn nations, 11
ls hardly too much to say that tho Moor,
of whatever class, is born a gentlcmun.
There is snob a t;ruce about tho humblest,
sticli an easy dignity, that whenever circumstances place them in positions calling
for the exercise of courtesy they very seldom fail to respond, nnd thus it comes to
pass that in a democratic nation, in whioh
every mnn of ability���cunning jiorhap*
would bo the bettor word���muy rise to the
highest placo, '.veil though he start life ua
n slave, tho self proclaiming parvenu is
practically nonexistent. Tliis is not, however, to imply that gauchorio nnd tha
pleasant manners whicli come from evil
dispositions or stupidity are unknown.
Unfortunately the lifo led Iiy the average
Moor is ono that dwarfs refinement of intellect, as it does development of mind,
and tho vices to which the majority stto-
cumb in early lifo too often stultify the
most prominent commencement.
It is a pretty sight to seo two elderly,
dignified Moors salute. With measured
paco, tho eyes of each fixed on thoso of the
othor, thoy apy roach with a slight inclination, holding the right hands slightly advanced. They press their finger tips together and begin a volloy of prescribed
salutations, greetings ar.il inquiries, hardly pausing to insert replies nn;l ejaculate
"God be praised I" Thou each presses the
liiider tips which havo been honored by
contact with thoso of his friends against
his lips and then upon his heart ns he
raises his head uud redoubles his salutations.
To evory fellow Moslem tho greeting is
Ittvon  "Es-salam   alaikum"  ( 'Pence  bo
unto you").   To which tho answer is "Wu
alai kuinos-snlam ("And toyou bcpwioo")
To the unbeliever tho nearest approach to
Uils permitted Is "Ala saloni' tak" ("On

Ike'way to speed tho parting guest ls tu

"Tlio law is very blank on the question
wliich occasionally comes up as to tlio lo'
gal right of a clergyman to marry liim
self," observed a lawyer. "Of course thur_
aro not many clergymen who havo ever
contended that they had the legal ns wcl'
as tho ecclesiastical right to perform a mui
riago when they woro personally pnrti-t
to it, and there never will bc, from the
peculiar circumstances of tho ease. As far
us the laws of this District are uoucornud,
however, a clergyman is just us competent
to marry himself ns ho is to mnrry others,
tor the reuson that tlio laws do not buj
anything to the contrary, mid tho olergy
man's certificate that tho marringo hai
beon performed Is ul) that ia needed to
make it lawful.
"I am not up luecclosiastieal law to any
groat extent, and I am uot able to explain
tho church ordinances, but as f_r as 1 can
learn a clergymun uf uny o( the leading
denominations has nil tho church right to
marry himself thatiiuhas to marry others.
Tho court of queen's bench In Dublin on
Nov. 10, 1855, hud a case of this kind un
dor consideration, the only point in issue
being whether a clergyman could mnrry
himself. Tho case was vory fully arguod
and Is reported in the reports of that court

The decision was itl the nllirniutivu, and

Similarity of Animal* nnd Hu.
It has been observed that if tlie
tamed dog is taken back to Uie wild
itato be loses his voice. These "sounding voices" are produced in the animal
throat in it way similar to human language, but are not "voices'' proper nor
"languages" proper, and yet tbey are
full of psychological expression anil reveal the animal's psychic states. If we
tickle a chimpanzee in the armpit, tin
touch produces a Krin on the face similar to .hut of n man under like circumstances. He also emits laugbtcrlikn

news of ii feast to its fellows? A tiger
hnd been killed.
Colonel Uninsay ordered tho carcii_M.
of the skinned tiger to be dragged out
vloiu under tbe thick mango trees into
the open. Taking out his watch, he
iskfid us to make u guess as to how
long the vultures would take ta clean
the flesh off the bones. Some oue said
half au hour. A.e thero was not a vulture in sight, this seemed even betting,
but Colonel Ramsay gave them ten
njln sites, which proved to be correct.
There was one vulture at first soon
soaring round anS round very high up
in the cloudless sky. He closed his
wings nntl dropped on to the carcass
witli a swoop. In two minutes the sky
was full of vultures, all concentrating
from every side ou the spot, and arriving with all the impetus their drop
from a great height gave them as fast
as it takes to tell the story. Then
there commenced a frightful scene of
Bteral carnage, every oue tearing with
sharp, hooked bill at the entrails first,
then at the flesh, all lighting for room
to get �� piece aud tumbling over one
another with frantie haste.���"Tbe For-
