On the Steamer  Germanicus is
One of the Most Valuable
Collections in the World
is Doubtful if any   Museum
Can Show a More Complete
Collection of Weapons
The genial master of the Germanicus is,     entitled  to the palm  for a
, collection     that instrucls, dnl crests
,   amuses  and  entertains.    Those who
.'  are so' fortunate as  to he invited by
him  to  see his collection cannot afford ,to   miss  the  opportunity,     foi.
while the lovers of curious 'coins, oi
-   the.earnest,collector of stamps does
work,that interests a class,  Captain
Berndt \s   work  interests  everybody.
Cramped, up in  three snfall  rooms
on board tlie German <-s'>ip Germani-
'   eus,   Captain   Berndt .has  a mag'nift-
cent    collection  of  arms'of  almost-
every    nation   and   every  barbarous
tribe on earth.    Each weapon  is not
only    genuine,    but in nearly every
case    each  has     done  its   gruesome
wort'i, from.the poisoned dagger used
by the secret society, ^the Mafai,   ot
Italy,   and called  the  "Sacred   Dag-
>   ger", to the dagger used by the natives in Middle  Africa in their human    saciifices,   t encased ���  in sheaths
made of human skin.
In. all..   w,e collection numbers near
ly-a thousand  pieces;   and' is -nvorth-
tbousands  of dollars.    II  has  taken
-years and years of sailing 'from port
to, port,   always  on  the alert     for
something curious  and  unique  in the
matter    of     weapons,  but  Captain
Berndt. feels proud," and justly so, of
the results.
In tlie  first room shown to .vParty of visitois yesterday,  the low upon, row   of polished   daggeis,   knives,
swoids,  etc.. caused numerous exclamations of surpiise, and as  the visitors  involuntarily   strelched      foi th
their hands to  handle  some of    the
curious   o-bjecls,   they   pausod      midway upon  the advice  of   the captain
to admire the things from a, distance
as    some     of the weapons contained
the  deadliest  p.oison,   and  a scratch
from one     of them  would  mean -almost instant  death.   "Foi -instance']
continued   the'   Captain,  "this little
knife, used hy the natives of Congo,
is covered   with   deadly   poison.       I
proved   this   to my satisfaction     hy
using it on a    kitten I had o;ice.   A
very small prick in the side  was sufficient.    The cat was  dcaid  inside an
���"That,"- said the captain, pointing
to along, crooked, wicked-looking
instiument of death, "is aknss from
Java. The one to the left, and of
almost similar workmanship, is a
weapon of the natives of the .Celebes
" islands."       :
A      weapon   rich   in   woikmanship,
crooked,  and about sight inches     in
length.      encased  in    a richly   inlaid
sheath,  was, explained the owner,  a
Morocca.ii   dagger���one  thai   he    liad
paid  a good,   stiff  pi ice   foi  .himself
in Morocco.
"Now,   this  one here  is  something
that will  interest the'ladies,"   went-
on, thc captain, .who'is������somewhat of
a humorist for all his sombre    surroundings. '-'It is a dagger from Middle Africa,   and   is used   hy   the   natives in  their human sacrifices.    The
sheath     is made of the skin of      a
South African lady, and, ,as you can
see for yourselves,  makes an  exceptionally   serviceable .easing for      the
knife. The vone next to it is the "Sacred   Dagger,'I    used  by Mafia when
the death sentence i��, passed  upon a
person by  tins Society,  this kind of
weapon    is a,lways   used   to  transfer-
the condemned person's soul   to    another |sphere:   That one, I was-    as-
surred by   the one from whom   I  received  it,   has   been   the   instrument
of execution in more than  one case."
In the. next room   the  Captain has
arranged     his   larger  weapons,   such
as    spears,   swords,   the   Australian
Boom-o-rang, etc.  -One weapon which
attracted the'eye at. once,  is shaped
almost exactly like acomrnon  pitchfork, hut is p, much surer instrument
of death  when in'-Ihc hands  of    one
of  the fierce  tribes ��� whose   workmanship and ingeiiiiiity. is response'. 1-: for
the    weapon.       It has. three   prongs
about nine inches  in  length.   At intervals  of two  inches  are barbs   an
inch in length, slanting the opposite
way  to  the main  prong,  and   it     is
easy to  conceive  how  impossible it
emy to escape, once  the owner had
go I   ' a good  jab  at him.    To make
matters  doubly  sure; ' however,'- each
haih    and prong has been poisoned,
and the merest scratch  is .sufficient!
to cause death.   There are also seveial kinds of Zulu and Kaffir spears.
The,onlV difference between the two
weapcOis   is  the 'fact that  thc   Zulus
use  ,-\viie   in binding   on   the   metal
barb,  while the  Kaffir "uses  the less
expensive sinew  of  bullocks.
"That,"   said   the  Captain,   point:
in��   to      a'string   of  heads' hanging
midst     a collection of Zailu shields.1

the    !'aHiru  '      of      a   ^iiiTr ' lady
v.lirn "she appeals in full  dress      on
state    occasions.'f   The "dress" consisted  of* a string of beads about a*��
inch and  a half in width,  and    , although   of very   pretty   workmanship,
there seemed to-W butrvery''little of
it .for a hall dress, eVem according to
the most  fashionable European   idea
on low-nes!i dress/^   etc.   On the opposite side  of the wall'are, ai ranged
a nice  .  collection   of human   scalps,
which  the captain had" obtained from
a tube' in  Borneo called' the'"'Head
Hunters."      ���_,;.,   ; l ,        f
' Besides the hundreds'" of weapons in
the  collection,, the  captain   Has  de--
voted   ' much 'time to gathering  to~>
gethci an .array of horns,  a,nd  from
the. antelope  "of South  Africa" he has!
a pair   which-measures  nearly      six'
feet from  tip to tip,'it-being  from!
a species      of the.   largest   antelope.'
One of the larest items of'the col-,
lection is    the head of a Spring Buck,
[rom jKouth Africa, ,with  32, rings on
llie boms.    Each  ring indicates       a
year  of  thc  animal's  life,   and  it-is
very    seldom     lhat .one with  more
than  IB rings are round    Befoie leaving thc South Afiiean collection, the
captain    pointed    .out a?shell  which
had   been filed   in   Ladysmith,   South
���\fi ica/during the Boer war.'} ,   r- -
���Amidst a iuim|<er of swoidfish,"sawfish,  albatross-heads,  etc, "arc hang-
in"   two paddles, about-six .feet     in
knglh, and  brought  to a sharp point
al   the lower end.    In two  lines   up
and  down   the centre of   the  paddle
aie six holes,  about the sixe of    a
ten-cent     piece. These,   the Captain
explained, are believed by-the natives   to ' greatly   increase  the speed - of
the canoe.   "And   they-do,   too,"   he
added.  "Thc -wafer being forced rapidly through the holes'as the paddle
is     weilddd,    helps    to steady, the
blade,   and  not   a pal tide   of   energy
ot   'push' of the paddle is waster by
slipping   sideways,   as   the   ordinary
paddle will  do." *
Amongst      the Collection   of, birds'
heads   is   that of  au albatross',  villi
its      long,  crooked   beak,   which,   in
the  case of  the one in   tlie Captain's
collection,    was     thci- cause  of   the..-

Yard Champion
" New York,  Aug. 7.���Arthur       V.
Duffy,     champion sprinter of       the
world,  who recently returned  from a
successful   trip   abroad,   has  decided
to. retire from the cinder path, says
the New. York   Herald.    His  reason
for retiring is. that  he feels that he
has  had his day,  and  that hewoild
rather retire when at Uie height   of
his fame than when defeat will foice
him out.
.When, ahioad Duffy won ne'v championships    ami     established      --hive
woild's     records for short distance
events.    His   best   performance   was
victory over G.  A,  Widinan,        the
Australian  lOO.yaid  champi.m,   who
had    not been defeated   ' < fore      in
yeais.    Duffy  also  too1-''   "����� measure
of MaoPhers-on/of New Zealamd.   In-
speaking of his trip to New y.calai d,
Duffy  says that  tlie  runners      'h-rc
were started as horses are at.     th>
rac^  track  in   this  country.   Every
runner has to step into his  lur'icu-
lar  partition  with a barrier   across
his breast, and when everybody     is
leady, the starter  snaps  it.
,   About   Australian    runners,   Duffy
says   they-, are slow to-begin,,    but
when once under way there are    nr'
faster men'in" the world.   -
Of English' runners he says-. ^Let
them once-master quick start, and
there will be no.sprinteis in - the
world who will* have anything on
them. As it is now, there is no
question m my mind, and my victory
away from home .would tend to show
it., ' the ,Yankee short.distance men
are as a class as much superior to
the English as the" English distance
mnners are superior to the American." I
