('.  Tho Wonderful Secret Work That Convict Realff Performed In ths Teeth of  '   Constant and Systematic 8upervieion  .   by His Jailers.  Auibroso Koalff was undergoing a  llfo seutenco on tho toworlng rock of  Gibraltar for scuttling hia ship for tba  ealto of tho Insurance money. Tho  governor told the story of Healfit's attempt to own pe:  "Thut fellow led n roving llfo-H  daredevil that obeyed every luipuls<',  good or bad. And yet for threo whole  yejirs I foiiml hitn n model prisoner.  At Drst bo waa employed as carpenter, and a little later we put him on  the harbor works. But suddenly to  this wild nature camo an unquenchable thirst for freedom. At that time  RoallT was In charge of all tbo laborers' pick bundles and'wheelbarrows In  the Rosia quarry, whore he wns Installed in a little lean-to abed against  a hollow ia tbe mighty cliff. Every  repor.t put before nie extolled tho  man's good behavior.  "Well, every afternoon at 4 tbo working party of convicts would form up  aud roturu to the prison���������which, as  you know, contains Rome of tbe toughest characters of both* east aud west���������  and an otiieer would go to Realffi's  shed to uulock him and bring him  ���������along wlta the rest  "Bnt this afternoon tho door was  opened in vain. Ren Iff was not there.  And yet twenty minutes provlously ho  had been seeu through tlw Uttlo window when visited by tbe chief warder.  He had even answered to bla narao as  be stood planing at his bench In a dark  recess, lie was gone, how _ or where  not a soul know. Unquestionably the  shed was locked on the outside, ond  the lock had not been tampered with.  And thero nppeared no other exit except the door, nothing but solid rock.  -Tbe-llttle-shanty_was_ransacked,,emps,  tied, but without result  "Coold tho man, 1 wondered, havo  discovered some secret recess? Yoa  know tbe whole rock is fairly honeycombed with holes, both natural and  artificial, like Gniycre cheese. Alarmed  at tbo results such ao escape woold  hnvo ou the morale of my dangerous  gangs,1 had torches brought and pep-  BOimily examined every nook aud cranny of the cliff against which tho shod  was built Tben my best officers went  over it all with hummer and crowbar.  But no, nothing In* solid rock. Now  for tlie floor. It was love! and fairly  smooth, just covered In phwea with a  Uttlo looso Klilngk*.

Missionaries have much to contend  with In dealing with the tribes on  some' ot tbe Islands of the eoutbern  I'aclfic, and I am reminded of an Incident bappoalug on n rem oto lsjnnd  of the FIJI group whoso tribes were  still influenced by the savagery of  Cannibalism. A German missionary  bod made excellent progress toward  the <*olltg!-tenmGnt of a tribe of savages Jn tbo Interior when bo was taken Ul nnd forced to abandon his work  and seek recuperation In a village  along the coast  During his alienee a native medicine  man succeeded in undoing all that the  good German father had 'iiecoinplls*_od.  The latter was warned that under the  clrcumstnnccs tt would be unsnfe for  Wm to return to the. scene of bis labors upon his recovery, but be decided that hts duty called him there, and  upon regaining hia strength he Journeyed inland to the village whose inhabitants had.gone over to the teachings of the medicine man.  His reception wns decidedly a warm  one, and bo wns informed that unless  he made a practical demonstration'of  tbo superiority of Ills teachings over  theae of the medlciue man he'would  be converted In short order into food  for the Iiuuwy tribesmen. Ho at once  realised tbnt bin life hung upon a  slender thread nml endeavored to show  to the sava-ros by ,trgnm������/it that their  conclusions as to his edible qualities  wore entirely erroneous and tbnt tbey  should turn tbelr thoughts to other  kinds of fo;>d as well as to higher subjects.  Ills efforts wero iu vain, however,  nud just as he wns about to be struck  down by tho uplifted clubs of the chief  men lu the tribe ho happily bothought  himself of tho foci that his upper teeth  wero false. Opening, bis mouth, he  hastily extracted Ids set. flourished It  In the faces of bis nstonuded opponents, and particularly tho features of  the medk-lnc man. and, replacing the  teeth as suddenly ns ho had extracted  thorn, robukod his charges In a manner which can better be Imagined than  described. The tribe, believing tbat  bo had performed n miracle in taking  -out-nnd replactng-hls-own-teethi-drovo  tho medicine "man from the village and  restored tlw missionary to bis former  placo ns upllfter of their material and  spiritual destinies.
