up two flights of stairs, burst into tlie
room where Gessner wns still in a deep
sleep and without a moment's warning
shot liim dead. He Ihen blew out his
own brains. The cause of the rash act
was undoubtedly jealousy, both men
were in love with Ihe same woman, an
actress of somenote, and the lady's partiality for the tenor drove Fcidmann to
desperat Ion.

cases. There was a distribution of provisions hy the Relief Committee yesterday and it was yitiful to see the crowd of
women and children waiting for the dealing out of the few pounds of flour or a
scrap of meat. While there are many
cases of destitution yet the statement
that 1000 families in Braidwood and
vicinity are suffering from want of food,
is a pure falsification. There were about
1400 miners on the pay-rolls of the
Chicago, Wilmington &;Vermilion Coal
Co., which operates the Braidwood mines.
Probably 1000 of these were married men
with families. Since the strike begun
several hundred of these families have
reached the end of their resouces, but the
majority are by no means totally dea-
titute. Most of tbe extreme cases of destitution nre in the families of improvident and shiftless foreigners who were a
burden on their fellow miners even in
prosperous times. It is also true that
many of those who applied for relief are
not destitute.
UNCONOlTIONAI.  BUBRKNDER.
New York, June 28.—Later advices
from Hayti state that the Commander of
United States steamship Ossipee in demanding the release of the Clyde line
steamship Ozama, seized by Legitime'"
gunboat, refused President Legitime'*
offer to release the vessel on condition
that she w ould not go to Gonaisez. Capt,
Kellogg, of the Ossipee, informed Legitime that the vessel would have to be
surrendered unconditionally, and $5000
be paid over as an indemnity for her detention. Legitime immediately complied, und the Ozama was escorted out ef
the harbor nnd sailed directly to Gonaivez.

About 400 names are enrolled on the

FOREST AND PRAIRIII I1XIR. .
Helena, Mont., June 28.—All effort* to
check the forest fires which started in
Cascade, Co., near Sand Coulee, two
davs ago, have proved unavailing. Advices up to yesterday afternoon show that
it has covered an area of over 106 square
miles nnd has tlestroyed the best hay
ground in the vicinity. The loss wilt be
very heavy, owing to the fact that the
dry'season hnd already greatly reduced
the hay crop. No such prairie fire has
been known in Montana in recent years.
So far no lives have been reported lost
although several ranchmen have been
burned out.

executors' will. Roncho built the steamer
Rosa for the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co., the contract price being
$405,000, which was accepted and transferred to the plaintiffs in the present

draught of the vessel was less than the
contract called for. The suit was for

the complaint.

We would just like to odd hefore leaving
t In- subject, that the number of marks obtained   by   the   High School  pupils in
Nanaimo is hardly a fair test of relative
merit when compared with the  Victoria
average.    In the latter place there  are
nearly eighty scholars In the High School,
many   of whom,  we  understand,  have
been under the able tuition of their  two
masters for as much as three or four
years.   When this fact is taken into consideration the public of Nanaimo will set-
how great is the cause for congratulation
that the standard is  so remarkably high
among our citizens of the future.  That
both scholars and teachers may heartily
enjoy their well-earned holiday, and be
spared to come back  to desk and books
next August is our earnest wish.   The
future of Nanainio is largely in the hands
of these boys and girls, whilst their future
is largely in the hands of their teachers,
each one of whom we believe is fully
alive  to   the  enormous  responsibility
which must of necessity always rest upon
those "who write upon blank pages"—
when  those  pages are   human beings I obtained

i ROUTER "   IMMIGR I NTS.
We have been asked more than once
what manner of man the Crofter is who
is so frequently mentioned in the telegrams which reach us from time to time,
relative tn British emigrants for Canada.
Crofters are defined as tenants paying
less than $161 rent per annum, hut no
point is fixed below which the crofter
sinks into the cottar class. So far as we
remember, the main distinction between
a crofter ami a cottar used to be and
doubtless still is, that, while the former
pays his rout to the landlord direct, the
latter pays his rent to a tenant or middleman, The chief causes—to judge from
published Reports—of poverty and irritation on the crofters'part are the undue
expansion, ns well as the undue contraction, of the area of tlieir holdings, their
insecurity of tenure, and want of compensation for Improvements, aggravated
by high rents, and the wholesale withdrawal of land for sporting purposes.
Ibis last reason given for lhe discontent
of these hardy and loyal Scotsmen is, we
believe, the chief. We read of one
great county magnate alter another
evicting tenants to make way for deer;
a deer-forest yielding a much larger annual rental than does the same amount
of land in the occupation of the Crofter or
small farmer. It is an easy matter to
argue as Mr. Hknky  Geoiiui;   does that j ,'^=~
the law should step in and prevent lhese  NANAIMO  TELEPHONE  COMPANY
poor people from being turned out of the !
houses in which thev and their ancestors
vealcd that it enters into tin
lure of "pure Havana cigars."
j when saturated in lhc juice of tobacco
steins the straw paper makes a "filling
almost equal, if not superior, to the genuine leaf." Infact, il is sometimes impossible to detect the delicate film of
paper interlapped with leaves in the
finished cigar, or neatly folding the exterior. We think Ihe moral of this disclosure should he. "patronise home industry," otherwise by going further we may
fare worse as do apparently some of
those smokers who believe that much
magical virtue is contained in the word
I. Detection we are assured is
rendered impossible, as this
brown paper serves its purpose admirably under combustion, leaving no resi-
dum other than n'pure white ash. "To
such refinement of art has this business
been carried that hy the use of machines
rolled over the sheet of paper, an almost
perfect impression of the tobneco leaf is
the peculiar "spots" being
- on calico. Doubtless, smokers
Havana cigars" will consume
their 'weed' with an added zest.ufter learning its component parls. It is asserted
that few plants exhaust the soil in which
thev grow so speedily as tobacco, ami the
large amount of ash which it contains
supports the assertion. A Planter in
Northern Queensland once known to us,
used to say that he had proved lo his
own satisfaction that every ion of perfectly dry leaves carried ol! from the soil
Irom four to five hundred-weight of mineral matter—that is aboul as much as
is contained in fourteen Ions of the
wheat grain.
We give our readers a sample of the
1-Milonnl work perfnnieil on the Tacoma
Daily Ledger for June 2(1. It is both
amusing ami instructive to see our
friends from their own point of view.
The Innocent bluster indulged In by our
"Sound" contemporary is positively
funny in its refreshing naivete when we
consider thai './uc water is the scene of
operations,
"The Hritish Minister has hail a conference with Secretary Blaine relative to
the Behring Sea controversy. Sir Jullen
won't be slow lo tell the home government that Canadian pirates had better
keep of! Alaskan waters, for Mr. Blaine
has a happy knack of securing American
rights and making foreign governments
hack down."

may have lived for generations, For
ourselves we are unable lo see why, if
the State allows a person to buy land at
all, it should not allow liim also lo so
manage it that it shall pav the highest
interest possible on his investment.
However that may be, there is room
enough for these bard-working, frugal,
half-fisherman, half-fanners, in our
boundless Northwest, and on this Coast.
No question of political ethics will arise to
disturb their equanimity in this country,
and we may safely predict that within
twelve months from the time of their
leaving "the land of brown heath ami
shaggy wood" thev will bless tin- day
when owing to their "tyrannical landlords" preferring as tenants Yankee
millionaires to ihe poverty-stricken
crofters of the Western Highlands ami
Islands, they were induced to out asunder j
the cord which bound Ihem  lo an   idea.

RUSSIA  AND TURKEY.
The crisis in Eastern Europe appears
to be last passing from a chronic, into nn

the European concert continues intact

to wish for an open rupture with Italy.

Tho woman was growing restless. "If you
want to sell a picter book or a new double
hack action can opener, young man," she
said sharply, "show yer samples. Don't
keep a body hero in the cold."
"Well, madam, I am a ruined man, irretrievably ruined. You see, I studied journalism nt college and thought myself another
Daua. I was full of hope when I first set
foot in New York nnd set about creating a
sensation. I imagined myself city editor,
then managing editor. I saw myself obliterating tho old style of journalism and inaugurating a new school. My namo was heard
everywhere, ft was blazoned on the musty
scroll of history and sent forever down thc
future years. Well, I didn't make much sensation or money, and in an evil moment ]
took to writing verses, hoping to supplement
my small weekly salary. Don't shudder so:
I havo paid in full the pennlty of my wrong
doing."
Ho pulled out the tenpsnny nail that served
for a button in his coat, and, thrusting ho
bony fingers into an inner pocket, produced
a greasy, much crumpled sheet of paper.
"1 call this my last blue chip, madam, because I havo played it in every newspaper
office east of the Rockies. It is one of those
little poems that men of genius toss oil' in
leisure moments. I nover could bring myself
to part with it. When I have shown it to my
brother journalists they havo praised it.
Thoy did not offer to buy it lest they might
lnjuro my sensitivo feelings. But on thc
strength of this poem they blow mo off to a
square meal and givo mc a list of the deserted
barns for the next fivo miles, or tell me the
lay of tbe most vicious dogs in their neigh-
baa-hood. Today, as I was passing your I
house, I saw vour lovely faco at tho window, j
and"	
"Why dou't you show your poem to tin,
woman over in that red houso?"
"Ohl madam, sho is not liko you. Pardou
my bluntuess, but as 1 saw her sitting ou th.
back veranda sho seemed ns homely as a wire
fence. Sho must bo a -{ery ordinary person,
1 think. No, below the average, for she
wears a wig. But iu your face I saw tho angelic temperament, the refined simplicity
that would havo turned Pope's: cynical shafts
upou man and away from woman."
"I think I can givo you something to eat,
sir, if you will step in tho dining room," said
tho woman; "but I can't buy your poem."
After ho had eaten a meal that would bave
staggered the giant of a traveling circus, he
bowed himself out and started away on his
weary journey. But half a mile further on
he stretched himself out on a flat shelf of
rock and, lighting a pipe, gazed up at a wintry sky.
"Originality is as good as money," ho said
aloud. "When I spent those six months at
Sing Sing I thought it was a clear waste of
time. But this littlo blue chip scheme I concocted up there is a daudy. When I wander
toward the lilacs of Louisiana for my lungs'
sake I'll try to sell it to somo ot tho boys on

Money for Money'. Sake.
The lato Dick Hopple, whoso wealth was
counted up into tho millions, was an ardent
lover of money for money's sake. He didn't
accumulate it with tho intention of buying
pleasure with it, neither did he ever, with a
miser's motivo for hoarding, deny himself the
necessities of life. Ho always had for himself the best, and always lived like a gentleman that ho was, every inch of him. Still
he loved to accumulate for the sake of accumulation. When ho died an old tin box almost as big tu a Saratoga trunk was among
his goods and chattels In the safe deposit
department of the Lafayette bonk. It
was not filled with bulky plate and other
Hopple heirlooms, neither were there any
old clothes in it. There were deeds, plenty
of them, a few mortgages, soma bonds, a
good deal of shining gold and the rest of the
filling was greenbacks of denominations that
were large. It had been tha custom of the
old gentlemen for years whenever he had
$1,000 in change to buy a $1,000 greenback
with it and put it in tho tin box, Tho
law, it will be remembered, does not allow
greenbacks to bo taxed. This money so hid
away did not increase in value, did not earn
anything, did not in any possible way benefit the world. But holdl It did benefit tho
world a Uttle. Tho knowledge that it was
safe in tho old tin box made one man happy,
and that man was Dick Hopple. That waa
something.—Cincinnati Times-Star.

LourODCo OMpliant was ouo of tbo most re*
RDArkable men of his time of what nationality Boevor.   Iio wus not a great man; lie
was too versatile, too many sided, too erratic
Bor that; but hu was none tho less remarkable, uud ho filled a unique position, or any
uber of unique positions, in tho life of the
|ast four decades ns, perhaps, no other man
->ii!d bavo done.   Oliphant (for, as tradition
inns, no one ever called him''Mr.") was the
iiuzzluof tho world in general, tho admiration and sometimes tho despair of his friends.
Flo waa so many men in ono that ho was for-
r startling you with some new and, as you
|night occasionally think, fantastic, dovelop-
uiit, which, in another man would havo ap-
|n".ired whini'iieal, but In Laurence Oliphant
roa wholly fit and charming.
Thu story of Oliphant's lifo Is a fascinating
no.    From tho ago of 12 to tho death hour
t Twickenham thero had been scarcely a
llull moment;   Even back in tho very tiny
(.ays of boyhood he had bis hours of happy
fancy, which must have dono a great deal to
l-h'ipti bis life.    Even a passing glance at tho
[at of OUpbant^s books will snow something
[if hi-s many sided character.   Thero is "Ilal-
fnx I.ifein Modern Palestine," an unbroken
Ihain of Ulster Io research; there is his vol-
SJimo of "Traits and Travesties: Social nud
blitical!" hi  which, as Tho Saturday Un-
I'iew oncesnidi ho shows "tho gift, not com*
hi in this country, of esprit Gaulois, aim*
[ his strokes at follies and abuses, without
tny semblance < <f effort," and with "a keen
id light boarted wit."   Then thero is his
brilliant novel,  "Altlora Pets;"   then that
MK-r cations and masterly told tale, "Ma-
jollani, a Problem of iho iv-riod," which you
follow  with  "Fashionable Philosophy
Flid Other Sketches," or with "Piccadilly,"
jparkling with clever morceaux, with which
ry page i-i jeweled.

fThe Land of Ebeml}" nud then take up
'Sympneumata; or,   Evolutionary   Forces
ow Active in Man," and follow theso, if you
ill, with "Episodes la a Lifo of Adventure,"
id then with this last work nnd, as many
lliinli, his masterpiece, "Scientific Religion,"
Ind you will be amazed that nil theso could
lave como from ono brain.
7 Oliphant was little like tbe typical Englteh-
hnn in manner and appearance.    He waa

aad, and long, flowing beard and mustache.

COL JACK HAYS.
6TORY OF HIS EARLY LIFE, WHICH
HAS  BUT   LATELY   COME  OUT.
He Loved aud Was allheal, Ihe Afluir
Eodlng Moat Tratrlcl*)— Left Ills Tennessee Hum.; and "Vent to T<-. , !!,.;
Participation fn  Ilia.  Ma-xla-att  \Vnr.
There have beeu a great many ;.tories ,
written and published of the famous Jack
Hays, tbe Tea-as rftnga*, arboss namfl uud
fame is as well known In Texas as in California, but 1 have never yet seen uuj thing in
print in regard to the lifo or history of llnyj
before he como to Texas. Mo.-t of the stories
about Jack Haya say ho was u a**ra~*S8r -a-licr.
he came to Texas, in I8**t*, and Lut. littlo was
knowu of his history before that time, I have
recently had the pleasure of meeting an oltl
Tennessoean, Cupt. Frunii Bishop, who g:ivo
mea little piece of Jack Hays' history, wblcb
he says accounts for Hays' appearanco in
Texas, aud which n ill uo doubt be interesting to the many Criands ami admirers of the '
memory ofthe redoubtuhlo Texas ranger, for
there are few left now of those who loved
and honored bim in lifo.
Hays was born near the Bsrmltage, Old
Hickory's place in Tennessee, anil Cnjit.
Bishop was born anil ruisoil on the adjoining
farm. His father served under Gen. Coffee,
for whom Jack Hays wus partly named
(John Coffee Bays was his full name), and
Prank Bishop aud Jack Hays were boys together, sharing in the same sjwrts, attending
the same school in winter, hunting squirrels,
coons and 'possums together and growing up
to manhood in close companionship and .-n
tertaining for each other the warmest friend- -
ship, which was only broken by tho ilr-alli of '
Col. Hays.
LOVE AND  HIFLES.
WTieu Hays wasabout 89 years old ho full In
love with Miss Betty Donaldson, tho daughter ;
of a neighboring fanner, nnd for n. timo the j
young lady seemed to return his anient of- |
tachment.   For a year or more she received J
his attentions and' plighted him her troth, j
Preparations for their mnn-iago were boin^ i
made when there appeared In tho neighborhood  a young  man  named Talbot,  from
Mount Vernon, Ky., who was reputed to be
Immensely wealthy, aud, who, besides being
well educated, was a handsome and accomplished gentleman of pleasing address  and
polished manners, well schooled in all those
arts which go so far iu helping a man to win
the good opinion of tho fair sex.
Now, although Hays was a handsome
young fellow, and was considered tho best
rider, the best dancer and tho best shot among
the youth of tho country. Miss Donaldson
took a great pleosiu-e In showing him that
the attentions of Mr. Talbot wero not distasteful to her—in fact, that sho rather preferred them to those of young Hays. Now,
Jack Hays was not tho man, even at thut
early age, to tamely submit to a slight or u
wrong from either man or woman. Ho wus
a man of ardent temperament, aud could not
brook the idea of being second in anything.
As was said of him a good many yours later,
"he never failed a frieud or foe," and he
quickly informed Miss Betty that bo would
have no double dealing; sho must either remember her plighted word to him nud cease
to receive attentions from Mr. Talbot, or sho
must recall her vows and coquetto with and
marry whom she pleased. Miss Donaldson
was a young lady of spirit, and, besides
being piqued at being taken to task by Iter
lover, was, after tho manner of women, much
taken with the handsome face, (Ino words uud
pleasant manners of young Talbot, nnd so it
only required a few moments und a few sharp
words to give Mr. Juck Hays bis congo autl
to announce her determination of marrying
Mr. Talbot.
Hays recognized her right to do as sho
pleased in this matter and thero would havo
been no trouble about it bud uot Mr. Tnlbot,
elated by his success iu winning tho affections
of Hays' sweetheart away from him, boasted
of his conquest on every occasion. At a party
in the neighborhood shortly after tho rupture
of the engagement between Hays and Miss
Donaldson, Talbot taunted Hays with his do-
feat and the result was that Talbot was
knocked down and soundly whipped by tho
disappointed lover, who, though much smaller than bis successful rival, was moro than a
match for bim In agility and grit, two characteristics which afterward rendered bim famous.
Smarting under his chastisement, Talbot
sent a challenge to Hays, which was, of
course, promptly accepted, and the preliminaries of tbe meeting were quickly arranged.
Hays selected rifles as the weapons and Capt.
Frank Bishop, my Informant, acted as his
second.
Tbe duel took place at sunrise ou a bright
June morning, about two miles from the
Hermitage, In a secluded spot. The distance
was twenty paces, and Talbot was shot
through tbe heart, never speaking after the
crack of Hays' rifle, and dying almost instantly.
IBE Ul'inlT OK REMORSE.
Hays and bis second, Bishop, left tba
eountry immediately, and after a great deal
of wandering finally landed in New Orleans,
where they remained for nearly a year, and,
as Bishop says, bad "lots of fun." They
were well supplied with money, and they
won a great deal while in the Crescent City,
both at cards and horse racing, a penchant
for tbe latter sport being always a noted
characteristic ot Jack Hays, though ho foreswore cards, and it is said ho was nover
known to hazard a cent at any gamo of cards
during his career lu Texas.
After remaining nearly a year in New Orleans Hays and bis companion went homo.
Hays remained tbere a little over a year, and
was nover indicted or arrested for the killing
ot Talbot. It seemed to bo the impression of
tbe people of the community that he had
done tbe fair thing in the matter, and he
was not molested. Capt. Bishop says that
Miss Donaldson and her family mado overtures to Hays for a reconciliation, but that
tbe latter would not hear it, saying that Miss
Betty bad been tbe causo of his killing a fellow man, and that he could never bo huppy
with hof or make her happy.
Capt Bishop says tbat Hays suffered keenly from remorse for the killing of Talbot; a
spirit of unrest seemefl to take possession of
him, and he finally decided to como to Texas,
and seek tn this new country forgetfulncss of
his early troubles in tho home of his youth.
Whether he ever found ''surcease of sorrow"
Is not known, but that he found adventure in
plenty, and went through enough to mako
any one almost "cease to remember," is a
matter of history. Certain it is that the unerring aim which enabled him to kill his antagonist never foiled hhn in his hour of need,
and tbat he sent many an Indian to tho happy
hunting grounds, and man}' a Mexican went
into the presence of his maker, without tlio
benefit of clergy, when Jack Hays drew a
bead on him and his finger pressed the trigger, though he never, as fat- us known, slow a
man save in fair mid manly battle—Texas

Russell Street, liloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned fur
itself, nut only in Hindustan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy nf general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad In hear of its linding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tht'
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
wc fancy their sojum there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrno?.
and 2nd 1 lysentery Spasms, Cramps-,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurrc.;
und*." our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the none terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We '■
have never used '.ny other form ol this I
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a lirm j
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense nf duty we owe to the proj ;
fession and the public, as we ire ofthe
opinion tnal the substitution of any Other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE

A Ut-ssrsictlvc Panther.
J. Tippett, oi Nanoost'District, iuiurma
us that a panther killed a colt l>elona-ing
to him last Wednesday night. The colt
wa* only a few months old ami weighed
about :,00 pounds. After killing the
animal the panther dragged it a consialer-
able distance over logs ami underbrush
but onlv gnawed a small portion oi its
neck. When the carcase was discovered
Mr. Tippett immediately distributed
poison in it ami hopes to very soon have

Port Townsend CM: Mining Engineer
Picken states that the most valuable coal
deposits on the Sound are in township 86
north range li east, about fifty miles from
Whatcom. There are three yiens, one
ten feet wide, one three feel, and the
third three feet eight inches in width.
The third vein is the most valuable. The
coal lies on tlie mountain 4,000 leet above
the river, and a tunnel a hall' of a mile
long will cut the veins. Under this coal
lies a vast deposit of brown hematite iron
ore, There are four veins—Tlie Tacoma,
Last Chance, Mabel and Big Chief—all
within twenty rods ot the surface. A
branch of the Uanfield road will tap these
mines. The Bennett eoal fields are similar tu these.

Since the day ot the fatal fire, says an
exchange, Seattle haa been under enforced prohibition. The saloons have
lieen under a temporary leave of absence.
The people oi Seattle appear now to bt
gravely considered whether the "dry
season" has lasted long enough to give
it a lair trial. It is proposed by some to
try it for three months more, and the
temperance people are actively circulating a petition praying ior some such
restriction. It is admitted by everyone
that the proclamation of tbe mayor closing liquor places the day after tbe lire
lias borne good results.

Tlie Uncivilized Black Tribes iu tbe Heart
of Anstralla—They Am Lazy, Cowardly
and Treacher on s—Protec ted by Tobacco
and n Refolver.
A remarkably Interesting lecture was delivered by Dr. Curl Lumholz, of Cliristiania,
Norway, before the Geographical society at
Chickeriiig hall, New York. Dr. Lumholz is a
Norwegian scientist who, a fow years since,
conceived the idea of penetrating tho wildest
parts of Australia in search of flora and fauna
of the country. Ho has returned from his
explorations, having passed two years and
more among the least civilized tribes of men
now existing, aud having trod orer laud and
among nations never Iwforo visited by white
men.
The most interesting part of his experiences
were with the cannibalistic tribes iu the heart
of Australia, of whom he says:
uOf course, I could not go at onco and live
with them, but had to work my way gradually. I had, then, been in Australia more
than a year, and, of course, hail acquired
some experience as to how to proceed with
them. 1 now flrst began to associate with
the to called civilized blacks, and through
them I, by degrees, became acquainted wfth
other tribes, until at last I lived with natives
who were in Iho most primitive stato of life
and had never como in contact with a white
man, By civilized blacks wo generally understand such of the natives as have to somo
degree boon affected by European culture,
but the extent of the civilization may be
briefly summed up thus—that a civilized
black knows that he will be shot dead if ha
kills a European; that ho is greatly addicted
to tobacco, and fond of wearing clothes,
which he considers more as an ornament
tliun. as a useful article.
TIIE POWEB OF TOBACCO.
"The greatest troublo was to get the blacks
to take part Ia my excursions, for t-liey art-
born idlers and have fundamental objection
to any kind of work. Luckily, in the last
six or seven months of my stay in that region I happened to And a really good servant. He stuck to me wherever I went, so
that my position from tho timo of his advent
grew much moro favorable. He was by no
means an ordinary black, but was possessed
of a peculiar vein of naivete, and so he often
blurted out ideas and information of the
greatest value. In spite of this, he was not
at all free from the treachery characteristic
of all the blacks. Nevertheless, he was better
than the others and Raved my life many a
time.
"As far as this method was possible I rode
alone, whilst ray blacks went ou in front,
one of them leading my pack horse. At the
foot of the mountains a camp was pitched,
and here the horses were left behind, whilst
the saddles and^bridlcs were placed lu a tree,
so that the wild dogs could not get at them
Then we went up the mountain on foot, tho
dense underwood there of course being im
passable for horses.
"My provisions consisted of fourteen to
fifteen pieces of ox flesh, pickled and dried,
with a small quantity of wheat flour to bo
baked into bread iu tlie hot ashes, and some
sugar. When these provisions were exhausted, which occurred pretty quickly, wo
lived, liked tho aborigines, on young snakes,
lizards, larva?, eggs and tho liko. My outfit
included a largo whito woolen blanket that
was a standing wonder aud a constant envy
of the blacks. As soon as I unpacked it they
made a clicking noise, expressive of delight,
with their tongues, and roared out: 'Tainin,
tamln.1 (Fat, fat!) Anything that is very
good they call 'fat'
"One of the most important things I
brought with mo was tobacco, a greater joy
to the aborigines thau the very best food. At
Herbert river the blacks did not know, before the arrival of tho whites, of any stimulants at all. Tho tobacco served mo instead
of money, and for it they will do anything,
even to selling fueir wives. Among these
peoplo tobacco is always smoked, never
chewed, and I havo often seen a mother, carrying a child on hor back, hand it a pipe, at
which tho child would tako a couple of puffs
with apparent delight. They often used to
send in barter small bits of tobacco, wrapped
in gum, to other tribes, and in that way
tobacco is known among remote tribes who
have never themselves come into contact
with Europeans.
"Next to tobacco, my revolver was of the
greatest importance to me. Very luckily.
the natives, who do not themselves possess
even bows and arrows, have the greatest respect for fire arms. It is, however, necessary
to keep up your reputation as a good marksman, elso you will soon lose their respect
Tbeir astonishment ts equally great when you
hit a kangaroo in a resting position, or when
you bring down a bird on the wing. Theyworo
especially afraid of my revolver, which they
looked upon as inexhaustible, I made it my
business to keep this fear constantly awako,
and every night before creeping into my hut,
I discharged my baby gun, as they called it,
just in order to refresh their minds as to the
existence of this dreadful weapon.
PRECAUTIONS.
"Happily for me, I felt in the winter time
tho cold at night, owing to the great contrast
with the heat of the daytime, and in consequence I awoke several times every night and
had to wake the blacks to keep the fire burning before our huts. This gavo the blacks
the impression that the white man slept but
little and that he was always on the alert and
had the baby gun ready. It was necessary
always to b* on one's guard, as the blacks are
of a very ti eacherous aad cunning; naturo,
and one of the most important precautions
that a colonist learns to take is, 'never to
have a black fellow behind you.'
"I bad a good deal of unpleasantness and
many troubles through their deceit and cunning, which often made me so tired and worried that I was on the point of giving up the
expedition, but the thought of perhaps being
able to mako valuable discoveries in this
strange and interesting country always kept
my spirits up, and I must say that I was not
disappointed, but huvo returned with interesting facts and eperimens of natural history
new to science, and with an intimate knowledge of the habits and life of tho Australian
aborigines—one of those unfortunate races
that are rapidly dying out. On the other
hand I was cheered in my work by the many
delightful impressions I received of the grand
and splendid scenery around me on my
wanderings, sights I shall never forget Wben
the tropical sun rose in the early morning
above the trees of the lofty Australian forest
and awakened nature with its bright, dazzling rays, or when the moon appeared above
the mountain ridge and threw her pale light
over the vast plains below, while tho mystio
voices ot the night birds rang out on the still,
quiet night, there was a beauty over the
landscape which I could not possibly do
Justice to if I were to attempt to describe it,
and regretted only that I had no companion
to share it with me."
