Tho beautiful young empress of IUis- »ia looked upon her recent coronation, not as doubtless have many others in her place, only as a ^tflte function'of unparalleled splendor, but as, a solemn religious rite. She makes no secret of the fact thut she has taken life most seriously since her betrothal to the czarowitz became on, A .accomplished fact; nor yet that, in spit<>.of her devotion to her husband, the man of her heart's choice, as welP as the suitor whom the statesmen" of-her country; thought it desirable she should'espoiisc. she considers that tho brightest part of her life was Jeft behind with her irresponsible girlhood.'

With womanly tact and sweet reasonableness, the czarina has modified 'all this. Her bright and vigorous intellect has known how to give interest to:the dullness of business of state r'her originality has thrown a gla.mour.over the monotonous round of court ceremonies, while her suggestions as to what might be done for this or tha^jsec,tion of the community 'have dqib'e ifcuch to make her consort realize:',thait : the millions he has to govern are"-human individuals, and not one great vague indefinite whole.

'>'.-, It is nothing new to the Muscovite 'statesmen to note the gracious presence of a lady in the council chamber. The young czarina is only,. following 1 the example of the dowager empress when, unannounced, she quietly enters the room, usually with some dainty needlework in her hand, and seating herself where, by raising her dark beautiful eyes, she can let them rest on her husband's face, proceeds to give: eager and intelligent attention to a,ll ' that is going on.- i It is known that Princess Alix of Hesse wns.passionately fond of music, and as,'in marrying the czar, she entered a family whose devotion to the art is equalled by few, it might be thought that she would spend more time than ever at the instrument she prefers. The contrary is^he cose, the magnificent piano 'in her'Jjboudoir will ; remain closed for long mornings at the time, while the graceful-head of the young empress is bent, low over some page in the crabbed characters of the Muscovite tongue, or one whlchi while written in the simpler language of the. .

When it .was.at^lnst between full and spring time.thc blue jay one day saw the wise owl leave its perch oil the branch and seize the fat, provident squirrel by the neck 'and eat him, after which the owl returned to the branch, and sat upon it, looking wiser than ever, and the blue jny wondered, if it wns better to be provident Jike .the squirrel, wise like the owl, or .lucky like, the mice .that thereafter -ate of the squirrel's store. ' A HUMAN ARROW. When the Dutch fixetl their first post »t Cape Town in 1652, -with no thought either of colonization or of conquest, but for the sake of having- gardens which :ould supply fresh jrcgetables to the KCUI' • ty-strickencrewsof their ships sailing to the east, they found three native races inhabiting the country. One of these, the Bushmen, though few in numbers, were widely scattered over the whole o£ loutih Africa. They were nomads of almost the lowest kind, with a marvelous 'acuity /or tracking 1 and trapping 1 wild .nimals, but neither owning cattle nor illiuS 1 the soil, with scarcely even a ribal organization, no religion and a ang-uage consisting of a succession of licks. Unable to accustom themselves o civilized life, driven out of some d;s- ricts by the settlers .and in others .longer able to find support, owing to "the extinction of game, they are now almost extJnct, though a few are -still left in the deserts of the Kalahari and New Trapeze Feat Performed by a Olrl \ .

Bechuanaland. . Before many years the only trace of their existence will be in the remarkable drawings of nnimaJs with which they delighgted to cover the smooth surfaces of rocks. These drawings, which are found ill the way from the Zmnbesi to the Cape, and from Maniacland to the Atlantic, arc executed in red and yellow pigments, and are often full of spirit and character, The second race was that which the Dutch called Hottentot. They were of u reddish or yellowish black hue, taJlw than the Bushmen, but with squat and seldom muscular figures — a thoughtless, cheerful, easy-going people, who roveJ hither and thither with their flocks and herds as they could flnd pasture. They were decidedly superior to the Bushmen, whom they bated, but quite unable to withstand Europeans, and their numbers rapidly declined, partly from the loss of their best grazing grounds, but largely, also, through epidemic diseases, and especially smallpox, which ships, touching on their way from India, 'brought into the country. They are now, -as a distinct race, almost extinct in .the colony, thbugh a -good deal of their :blood has passed into the mixed black population of Cape Town and its neighborhood— a population the other elements of which nre Malays and west- coast negroes, the descendantsof slaves imported in the last century. Farther north, on the south side of the Orange river, ar.d beyond it in Nnmagnaland. email tribes cognate to the Hottentots etlll wander ever the dreary plains. Very different from these weak Bushmen and Hottentots was, and is, the third native race, (hose who are calle.1 Bantu (a word meaning "people") by themselves and Kafirs by Europeans. The word Kafir is Arabic, and means nn Infidel (literally "one who denies"). It is applied by Mussulmans not merely 'o these South Africans, but ' to other heathen; as, for instance, by the Afghans to the idolateijs of. Kaflristan. in the Hindu-Rush mountains. The Portuguese probably took the name from, the .Arabs, whom they- found already settled on the east coast. These Bantu tribes — if we may class those as Bantus who speak languages of what i s called the Bantq type— fill all East Africa from Uie region of the Upper Nile southward, Those who dweJl south of the Zambesi are generally strong and well-made men,, sometimes as block as a gulf of Guinea negro, sometimes verging on a brown tint; and though they have the woolly hair, and thick. lips generally characteristic of the negro, individuals ere often found among them whose cast of features suggests .an admixture of Semitic blood. They are more prolific Some Woodn Can Be Sawed M Thin m* Writing l'«por. • While the finer and thinner veneer* of costly woods are sliced tangentially from the side of the log, there are woods that cannot be cut this way—no i amount of boiling or steaming rendering it possible to cut them without breaking down the tissues to such ail extent as to destroy their surfaces for polishing—while others, says Hardwood, becoming discolored fropi 1 '' steaming or boiling, and being too hard . to cut otherwise, have to , be sawed. The fine-toothed, thin-gauge circular,', with flanged center, is the favorite for. cutting all ordinary veneers thicker . than 30 to the inch; 20 to the inch is the thickness most commonly used for cabinet work and finishing, but much thinner is used in the case of rare and costly woods, or rare abnormal or accidental figures, as in the ease of burls. Some woods have to be cut much thicker, being unable to bear handling when ; too thin; genuine ebony, the only fine really jet-black wood known, and large enough to be of any use, will not stand . sawing much below one-fourth of an inch in thickness; owing to the extreme brittleness,or want of cohesion; 'but there are other woods That can be cut aa thin as writing paper and still be handled in large sheets. Other woods there are that will lose their fine color on exposure to the atmosphere, espCr cially n, smoky one; these are cut only when immediately wanted, and are kept covered until the finishers can put on a protective coat of some preparation. ANIMAL WARFARE. Monlceyi of Africa Depend Cpon Their Number* and DUctpllne. The conditions of the life of .the monkey in Africa are sufficiently without reference trr ^tTirlr.if a.ibits, though these are undoubtedly. due to the dangers to which the nature of the country in which they live exposes them. The different species, of baboons, which are found commonly; over the whole African continent, ore. all by nature dwellers in the open country. They find their food on theground,! nnd whether this be insects -or vegetables, it is usually in places which afford little shelter or protection. Though : strong and well armed -with teeth, they are slow animals, with little of the monkey agility when on the ground, and' not particularly active even when climbing among rocks, In a rocky "kopjes" of the south, soya- the Spectator, of the cliffs and river sides of Abyssinia, and the Nile tributaries, they ore safe enough. But they 1 often abandon these entirely to invade thtf low country. . During the Abyssinian expedition conducted, by Lord !Napier of Magdaia they regularly camped near our cantonments on the coast and; stole the grain on which the cavalry horses and transport animals were fed. When on expeditions of this kind -they often leavo their strongholds for day* 1 together, and the means of joint defense from enemies in the open country are then carefullyorganized.'.Their natural enemies when, thus exposed ( are tho leopard, the lion, and the south- j ern Africa and Cape wild dogs. To the attack of the leopard they oppose numbers and discipline. TO BE TAKEN TO AUGUSTA, ME. nable.
