She did not  possess his confidence, or he hers,  and she never would-possess it, for  she had repulsed it, ,and now it was  too   'ate.  "Too late," she repeated, softly.

"Heady for  play,"  leady   for    study,   and ready at anv  time for  a   hearty meal.   This  condition  denotes   good   health,   but- there  are  entirely    too  many who -do    not  come up/to' this standard. They take-  no part in the manly games' all healthy  boys  indulge  in;   they-are  stoop-  shouldered,    dull   and  listless :<   t'hey"  complain   of   frequent  headaches, and  their   appetite   is     variable.      .Sometimes parents say,   "Oh, they'll-'out-  _to������v it."

What  boys of this  class  require, to   make them   bright.      active  and    strong,   is    a tonic,    something  that will build-up tho blood and make  th'e nerves strong.  There, is  no  medi-  cjne that can do this as quickly iind(  as  eflectively    as Dr.  Williams'    Pink  'Mils.

"Suppose." suggested Howard as  they wandered into the drawing room,  "that we read up the Smithsonian institution and the Corcoran Art gallery this morning. Then if it clears  we can go out right after luncheon and  drive round the city.

"How   do   circus   men1  md   womcii  live while on the'road'?'" said a circus  man.   "Why, they live better than ever  before.    We carry almost 1.C00 people,  and I doubt if you,can find one cf that  number who is discontented with his oilier lot.'   Several years ago'it was customary with the majority of circuses  to provide inferior cars for their business staff and performers and compel  the laborers to sleep under the big ied  wagons or the f.atcar.   The passage of  time has changed the order of things.  Circus folk now travel as'well as if not  better than the majority of men and  women   who   aro   constantly   moving  from one portion of the United States  to the other in search of pleasure.  "Our business staff and performers  live in spacious Pullman cars. The  beds are soft and roomy, and the bed-  clothing Is always fresh and clean. The  ciicus has twelve Pullmans of this  kind, and on each one is a porter,  whose duty it is to polish the shoes of  all the occupants each night, look after  the laundry and .make the beds and  sweep and dust the cars. These cars  are vestibuled, and at the head of the  train is an extra long dining car, where  the majority of the people are fed.  This dinner is looked after by a competent steward, with a r.talf of good cooks  and waiters, and breakfast and dinner  are served there each day. The performers take their luncheon on the  ciicus grounds immediately after parade.  "The laborers, iucir.cling the drivers,  canvas men. hostlers, property handlers and animal men. are served with  three meals on tho giound. The food  provided is of the best, and there is always plenty of it. Every laborer has a  bed. The drivers and hostlers have  swinging bunks in the cars directly  above their horses; the animal men are  accommodated in cozy-little staterooms  lifted up in thc big elephant cars, while  the property handlers and canvas men  sleep in coaches that greatly resemble  tourist cars. Every one has good quarters and splendid food, and in consequence it Is seldom that a complaint is  heard."���������Kansas City Journal.

Plunkett's flying column  of 20S men and two Maxims was ambushed and practically wiped out,-by  the Somalis last April the British  '- Foreign Office-sent Brigadier General  W. H. Manning to crush the enemy  at one  blow.   .  General Manning himself was subjected to many indignities by the  Mullah, and it was at one time reported that he had been surrounded.  .Ai desire was manifested in certain  official quarters in London to recall  .General Manning and declare the  campaign a closed incident, but public disapprobation of this plan was  loud and insistent, and now Major-  General' Charles Comyn Egerton, i Tariqua  lately conunandor-in-chicf of tlie Pun-  jaub frontier forces in India, has������been  ordered ,to supersede General Mannings  , and see what he can-do to amclior-.  ate thc situation. j  General Egerton     will have    under  i  '   him  a force  oi  S00   British soldiers,  ;  1.200 Indian troops and 4,000 native, j  'Africans.        Thc      '.'King's      African |  "Rifles," black men'recruited chiefly in j  ��������� South Africa, luive proved, their will- |  Sngness to fight for the honor 'of the  British  Crown in the    Somali     campaign.       It was they who    furnished  the bulk of the victims of thc   disaster    to   'Colonel Plunkett's,   column.  The   worth  of  the Indian     troops- is  undisputed, ' while-,, the    S00  "Tommies"    are'expected to     supply , the  ."morale"  of the  army.    But     of' all  the  "varied    constituents of    General  < 'Egerton's  picturesque  command     the  camel corps Is    by far the most    important.'  - The peculiar nature of the hinterland of Somali land is the chief obstacle to a short and successful British campaign. Between Berbcra,' the  capital of British Somaliland, and1  -'the'headquarters of the Ogaden So-  - malis,.*the tribe xo which the Mad  Mullah belongs, is an arid plateau  200 miles long, where only camels  can be used as transports. All supplies for the British expedition must  be carried across this waterless* de-'  sert. At'*Bohotlo. on tlie inner edge  of-the  sandy plain,  General  Manning  I    The Somalis have an enormous advantage over,their .enemy in that thev  j are able to fight and march    on   the  scantiest of rations. They will make  a forced march    of seventy   miles on  j four pounds of dates and a quart   of  J water per man.    On longer    marches  I they take two pounds of dates and a  I pint of    water for each day.      Their  | littlo, ponies   are   quite  as    hardy   as  the masters and have been known to  go' two   days  without water.   ,  The Mad Mullah is a Mohammedan  priest belonging to one of the several orders of dervishes. He is about  thirty-two vears old. tall and vigorous, with regular features, a typical  Somali. .When he first appeared on  the Somaliland horizon he had made  four times the long and difficult pilgrimage to Mecca and had edified all  those,���������>_ with whom he,had come in  contact bv his piety^and education.  Ho'was the son of an Ogaden shepherd and was boni among the herds.  Here he was found by a Moslem  priest', who offered to buy him from  his parents and bring him up in a  religious life. I-Ie made his first pilgrimage when he was about    twenty  -'his ' marvellous ' mounting in  miniature will he moro readily understood when it is mentioned: that  there are so many single, grains of  dust'on a butterfly's wings that no  man has succeeded in counting them.  "This same'naturalist mounted' a  aouple of hundred of tho tiniest eggs  of the smallest insects so as "to makes  a perfect'geometrical design, yet the  whole did not cover the space of a  quarter of g*n inch in diameter;  while another ardent naturalist select ed and arranged thirty-six hundred young oysters within a circle a  little less than three-eights of an  inch in diameter."   .

To  assemble  and equip a corps     of  camels     in   a  country     wlic.ru     these j  beasts  are almost  tlie only moans   of j  transportation      anel    communicaticm  may seem at first thought    to  be    a  simple  undertaking,  but     those     who  have had     charge of the     work     can  vouch for its stremiosity.  In' the first  place,   the natives   arc  not  eager     to  separate thenis-elver"'. from, 'the animals  which .verve them   in .so many   ways.  They' depend  on camels   not. only  for  their  transportation,   but , for     their  food and raiment as we'll.  Thoy mako  their tents from the hair of the.-camels,  their leather from  the skins,  and  finally   when   tho boasts are useful   for  no     other     ournos';     they   e*at   them.  Then again the guileless'native has a  habit of palming oil" on  the unsi/phis-  ticatcd purchasing agent his old   and  wornout  animals,  rarely   bringing    in  one that  is good  for- much.  Tiie    Somali  camel   is.   however,   much     more  docile than the camel of India.   Still  he  is  far ��������� from   being  an   ideal     war  horse.    The camel can dislocatem.ro  hones in  a given time than any other animal known te? zoology.    An attempt was made to use  a camel    as  n   traveling  battery,   but     only     one  shot was fired  from the     Maxim    on  his     back.       The     traveling battr rj  proved to be a boomerang.  Camels are very easily stampeded,  and this fact explains several of -the  recent British defeats.
