Story of a Unique Colony In Southern Alabama. mo Last Cargo at Sluren Brought from the Dark Continent to American Soil—How They I-lve at the Freieot Time. [Special Mobile (Ala.) Letter.) That events of momentous concern may occur while a soiling vessel is tnl; !np n. cargo of lumher from,Mobile to Africa, oud returning laden witli one of a different sort, was demonstrated early in the sixties. When the hist vessel that brought human chattels to our shores shipped from Mobile harbor' the war cloud, ivhich a little later dnrkened the whole land with.itspalllikc shadow, had not appeni-ed above the horizon. When CUDJO LOUIS CULTIVATING'rtis FIT2LD. this goocl ship, i-etiirniiiff with some- tiling more Hum 350 uncivilised, ten?possessed Africans on board, dropped anchor in Mobile bay the qonfliotwjus in pvoyross which made thoni vn.lutfJ«s lo the man who had bnrturud a shipload of lumber for them. A short distance out o;t Mobile there is a K« - um[i that includes au area oi many ucres. Out beyond this swum p there nre fertile heights and piny woods, and it was here that tbe last slave ship discharged its ca-rg-o and the ebon-black, half-clr.d men, women and children of which it wax composed were left, vn- he.lpcd and without the power to make themselves understood, to demonstrate their fitness to survive or to perish as the case might be. They did r.ot perish for, "although -they could riot talk in a language that could be understood by any human being on this side of the sea except themselves, they "could work. \Yhat was more, they oould live on whatever it was the good plea.sure of their employers to pay them and this was no unimportant factor in their success, for being content with small remuneration their services were in constautdemuud. Thus they not only survived, but as time went on, in a «ruull way, .they waxed prosperous in the strange but not unkindly land where fate had cast them. It was a- day fit.for1lieg-ods,:ilthoug:ii it wns -still Miireli, that with a son of the Emerald isle, whose.-joy and distinction it is that he is known ns "the bishop's driver," because Bishop Wilmcr, the venerable bishop of Alabama, has for years employed him, as our chariot- eer'we set, out to visit the "African settlement," ns it iscallvd. A little beyond the limits of thecily we struck the "sawdust wood" which leads through the heart of the swamp. The thick covering of savMustover even planks made our passage as luxairiant as if the wheels of our carriage were, rolling over a cushion.- On either han-1 lav n tangle of lush growth with a riot of snowv Cherokee roses and golden jessamine cvosvning and -garlanding tho tall trees, closely intermingled with tho starry dogwood. The velvety breath oi the langoi-ous wind'was perfume-laden and the polished leaves of the magnolia trees, with their great swelling buds, alrcody beginning to show white, sparkled like gems in the sun. Now nn.l again we passed short, dusky, pictuv r.-sque figures with enormous baskets on- their heads, covered with- coarse, snow-white cloths and leaves, malting THE PRINCESS CAMBA'. their way toward'Mobile. No sound broke the stillness save the occasional plunge cf some -big reptile into, the oox.iug water, -which stretched away in every direction ns far as one could see, N cnd every now' and again such passionate bursts of melody as can only come from the throat of amockingbird. , Beyond this weird, and, in its way, singularly beautiful, swamp .is'an abrupt height, find it is here that the '.'African settlement" is located.. It consist; of a little group of board houses and a couple-of-small churches among the pijies and live oaks. The little homes have-an appearance of thrift and taste which is not found in the home of the American-born colored man; in the south, Vinesi flowering plants anc] shrubs are carefully cultivated, and .everything both within and without ia scrupulously clenu. There is about both the men and the women, .and even the children, an independence and dignit> which at once inspire attention and a certain respect. . Womei* go on, heedlessly, ignoring the dangers that lie right in the path of their thoughtlessness. They neglect little warnings until they get used to them. The warnings become louder .a.n d louder, a ri d still they do not heed them. Their sickness increases like a snowball rolling down hill, The sickness comes on gradually, and they get us.t;d to it . gradually, but' it ruins their lives just the same. One woman in a hundred, perhaps, is perfectly healthy. Sometimes her weakness is inherited, sometimes acquired by carelessness. In every case, care and Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription will give her new liffi and strength and vitality. It will fill out the hollows in her cheeks, bring color to her lips, brighten her eyes, and make her really find truly a woman. The " Favorite Prescription" is of inestimable value at three stages in the lives of every woman—when the girl becomes a woman, when the woman becomes a mother, and when the mother becomes incapable of maternity. At these times it gives safety and strength. It is the only medicine now before the public for woman's peculiar ailments, adapted to her delicate organization by a regularly graduated physician—an experienced and skilled specialist in these maladies. It cannot do harm in any condition of the system. Ib sales exceed the combined sales of all other medicines for women. Every woman should have and read Dr. Picrce's Common Sense Medical Adviser, a great book of a thousand pages, pro- fjis'cly illustrated which will be sunt free on receipt of 21 one-cent stamps, to pay for mailing only. -Address, World's Dispensary Medical Association, No. 663 Slain Street,Buffalo, -X. Y. , ! two daughters, • wno carry .tlicm into Mobile in baskets on their heads. As he h'W the earliest and -finest, vegetables in all that, part'Of the country hq gets the highest price for them When we visited this, black truck-garden prince, his small holding wns for tlie most part devoted to pens. There were six acres of ' them, nnd each, pod- laden vine was 'enrefujlj tied to a Kmal! stick driven 'down by it. Not only is old Charlie rnrist' thrifty and' frugal bilt also most generous. He hits quite a sum of ready money at his command and when any 'of his tribe need pecuniary help he invariably comes to their aid. The women are no less industrious and frugal than, the men. There nre large saw-mills -in the vicinity of the settlement, and the Princesses JCuma nnd Camba make a regular business of supplying the mill hands with freshly-cooked dinner, and have grown well-to-do on the proceeds. Unlike the Amcricnn-born colored man. these Africans pride themselves on being not liglit'of color, but. very black. It was with unmixed. pridu that Cndjo Louis' wife pointed t6 her shining black sons .and clang-liters and. said: "My ch.il- drcns is all ,-\ fi'ic.'ins." U is doubtful, notwithstanding her cor.vcrsicin to Christianity, if she would not be glad to- li'n'i; their swart faces tattooed OF are the faces of all those who ci'ossed the oceiin in that last slavo ship. So stvong is racial pride among these people that they do not often intorr.inrry with the colored people of this country. Immorality 'is not known r.moiig. thorn. They da not multiply, but- rather diminish' as the years go on. and some of the families have already died out altogether, V. H. WAKEMATJ. Although it is now between 30 nnd 40 years since they were taken from their native land, without their consent, and incontinently set down where they now have their homes, they still.kcep up the tribal government of their native country, a.nd are, ns far as the community in which they live is concerned, a lawtin to themselves. When the Dahomeys, who exchanged thorn with the American trader for n ship load of lumber, came down in the darkness on their little village in th<! interior of Africa, their king escaped, although several of the royal family were captured. These persons of high degree have always been deferred to, nnd they settle al! disputes and differences. 'They maintain the best of order among their dusky subjects, who do not, however, pay them anything more substantial than respect, for prince and princesses work precisely as do their subjects, save somewhat »»re intelligently. It is said that not one of these Africans have ever been brought before the civil authorities. A iioblemaD of the tribe,and or.e whoso word is law, is one Cudjo Louis, whose last name has been-Anglicized from Consoulon to Louis. He and his wife, Ahbiann, .are among the few who were born in Africa, in this settlement, who can speak English, although they can. all understand it, Ahbiaua. who is especially intelligent and thoughtful, in speaking of their life in Africa, said they were very happy in their own country and would much rather be there than here. When asked about their occupation and capture, she snicl they tilled the soil as they do here, and were captured by tho dreadful Dahomeys, who make their living, not by work, but. by stealing people when they are asleep at night. She declared that if she had money enough to take her whole family with her, ?he woxild be glad to return to her native land, even though the merciless, haunting Da- hoineys nre still abroad in it, because ''it is so much nicer there thah it is here." These transplanted savages are very pious, and without an exception -are cither Baptists'or Methodists. When questioned as to what jdcqs of religion they entertained before they wore brought to this country Cudjo Louis said they knew about the one great spirit that made and controls all, but that they did not h«ir about His Son until they came here. .

Of Greece, and is the princess whc has been oofi'e- rucntly mentioned in ^he" European dispatches of late as destined to become the bride of the young king of Servia. Indeed, there is every reason to believe that the betrothal of the grand duk? end of the princess was precipitated by the announcement that.

For the benefit of women with small sums of money to invest-, Mrs.'Hetty Green, who is the richest woman in America, recently made the following Btatcmenr.: "I would advise any woman with $500 at her conimrmd to invest in real estate. She should buy the.real estate at-auction on OCMS.'CUS when circumstances have forced.the sale. If.she will watch for such an opportunity, it will surely corne, and she will find, that she can buy a parcel of la.nd at one-third its appraised value.
