When Lieutenant Henderson wan captured by tho natives of tin; (jfnlil f.'oasl hlnlei-laiul they got. Into a wordy discussion an to how they would kill him. The victim listened awhllo till lie was weary of It. "Oh, well," ho said, "I can't, bo bothered with your arguments-!! I'm very sleepy. Lot me know when you have made up your minds." And off to sloop he went. The unexpected performance saved Ills life. II.In calm Indifference persuaded Samory's men that they had to do with Home one of Immense importance. Unwilling lo take on thenirtolvoH the responsibility for his deatlv, they sent him unharmed to Samory's court, In the .flmlnl country. Once again Lieutenant Henderson saved himself by a like exhibition of courage. Ho found Samory on a throne, Kiirrouniled by '1,000 warriors, yet when motioned to do homage on Ills hands and knees he did nothing of the Hort. I In simply .sat on tho throne beside Samory, shaking that monarch warmly by tin; hand. Thanks to thin, and to nothing else, he was accepted an thi' representative; of a great sovereign Instead of a captive duomed to dentil, lie lalked to Samory of the queen, and Samory talked lo him. Thus a mission which might have ended, as so many African missions have ended, In a terrible silence and a suspicion of unspeakable hun'ors, did, in fact, end In a valuable basis of future relations between (Iroat P.riialn and a ftloljuui- niedan power.-- London Scraps. Tho Shape of the Sky. What is the apparent form of the vault of the .sk.vV There Is probably no one to whose e\ es II seems a true hemisphere, with Ihe/enlth appearing as distant as the horl/.on. At sea or In a Hat country the seeming greater distance of the horl/.on Is lies! shown. F'rol'essor J. M. I'eniter In discussing tills subject reaches the conclusion that the form nf the vault In vertical section Is that of the segment of a circle the arc of which subtends at the center an angle of the order of forty degrees. If the reader will draw such a segment In* may be surprised by the amount of Malleulng which l.i (bus ascribed lo llie sky. 1 From ilils optical Illusion many curious die, is arl-.o, sin-h as the seeming increased magnitude of the sun and moon when near Ihe liori/ou and the apparently oval forms of halos and coronas seen at low altitudes.
