THE ET-RNIFO GAZETTE: WINDA.T, .TA.NTTA.TIT, 30 Tht! following lottor vis rf Mrs. Thomas A. (fait. fro;n h by VH.A OMVAGK, Ai.tJTKRs, AFRICA. Jan. 3, is<N. \ My dear Mamma: You see we are started out again and are away down In sunny Africa. It is perfectly lovely here and I know you wonkl enjoy it ao ranch. We arrived here last Friday night at ten o'clock af tar thirty hours ride on the Mediterranean and a sicker (?) set I think no one ever beheld. That old sea was terrible. I have never been seasick before and I. never want to be again. Harriet thought she was going to die. It is awfully funny now that it is all over, but I assure you I thought that I should never smile' again. As we came into port the harbor looked beautiful. On the shore were hundreds of lights in every shape imaginable and the sea all about here is phosphorescent when it Is troubled, so that the water was dotted all over with tiny little lights made by fishes swimming about. Once in awhile a shark would sweep by the boat, leaving a long trail of light behind It. It was beauti- ~ f ul. — ---- -The villa we are stopping in Is run by an American woman from St. Paul, Her husband was a Minnesota politician and very wealthy, but after his death she lost all of her money and so came over here and started a boarding boose. She seta an elegant table— the best things to eat that I have had since we left England The yard around the house Is beautiful, roses and flowers blooming everywhere and orange and lemon trees just loaded down with fruit. I think I have eaten about three dozen oranges and we have only been here two days. I have picked them off of the trees myself. The dates are elegant Every Sunday there is a train of camels that comes in from central Africa loaded down with datee. We are going down Sunday to see them come in. The hedges here are all made of immense century plants which grow wild here and which we cherish so carefully, while they hack and cut them to pieces here. I have never seen such large ones. We are quite a way from the store, but 'the buses run down every half hour. aSo it is very convenient and also a very pretty drive. The road, in some places is [lined with palm trees and then again pepper trees with the pink pepper flowers. It is very hilly and . one has most beautiful glimpses of the sea Testerday afternoon we went with ~Atr. ~an~a Mrsr Crane, very pleasant New York people, down into the old town. We had an Arab guide, who seemed tickled to death, if looks were any indication, as he had a broad grin on his face the whole tijne. The streets are very narrow. A carriage couldn't possibly get into them, in the tirst place, as they are too narrow and in the second, as they are very hilly and all steps. The steps are about a foot high and two feet wide. Of course they vary, but I think they are usually that. It seemed so to me. As we were going up we met several Arabs on donkey back coming d<-wn and in some places we had to squeeze against the wafts in order to let them pass. There is one street in , the old town that has four hundred and ninety steps. We are going there this week. Our guide lirst took, us to his bouse. You know one is never permitted to see an Arab woman's face, as it is considered a disgrace for them not to have A MIGHTY SLOW CONGRESS.

American* Killed In Mexico. WABHiKOTOit Crrr, Jan. 80.—The United States consul at Guaynuu, Mexico, bu informed tbe state department that four American prospectors in the district of Montelama, In the Blsrra Madra mountain*, w'ere attacked on or about the 25th alt. by a band of Apnche Indians, and thot two of the Americans were killed—J. Offer and 8. W. Jacobs—the others escaping without Injury. The attacking party consietad of four Indians and one whitu man. IN NI-W GUINEA. queer their faces covered. It looks so to see only their eyes sticking out, but our guide had bis wife take off her face covering. She had one of the prettiest and sweetest faces I have , ' ever seen. All of the children have sweet faces and are as fat as can be, but yon would think from the filth and dirt tbat one sees that they would all be dead. The houses are all built with courts in tbe center of them; none of them have wooden floors, but all have thia quaint Moorish tile. They eatpn the floor, sleep on the lloor and keep their dishes on the floor—never have any chairs. Their food aa a general class is bread and coffee. They buy their bread, so you see that "they don't do much cooking. They don't- drink • whisky, as it ia against their religion. From his house the guide took jus to a harem. The house waa very similar to the one we had just left, 'it was not such a very large harem,, aa the man had only seven wives.. Here we were not permitted to see their faces. I wiah you could see these great big Arabs, in their white robes, going about on little bits of donkeys. 'There are'a great many English and Scotch people who have villas here and bring their servants, horses and carriages with them. Coats, the: thread man, has a beautiful villa here and has just finished building & very; pretty i Scotch Presbyterian church. Wouldn't It be fine if we had a villa here?

COY AND BERNHAMER Convicted In the Indianapolis Tally-Sheet CMC—Sullivan Attacks Clarpool. ITOIAHAPOUS, Ind., Jan. 80.—The jury In. the tally-sheet forgery cases were charged by Judge Woods on Friday afternoon, but it was. 6 p. m. Saturday before a verdict was reached.

Motions for new trials were entered, and they will be heard Thursday, the prisoners being placed under *3,uOO ball eaoh in the meantime and allowed their liberty. During his argument Friday Jndge Claypool denounced County Clerk Sullivan as a villain. Sullivan had been a witness In the second trial, and one of the defendants In the first one. Saturday they mot on tht street when Sullivan spat in Judge ClaypooPs face and then struck- him, remarking, "In your speech yesterday yon took advantage of me and called me a villain. My hands were tied then, but I resent it now." Judge Claypool then made an attempt to attack Sullivan, when they wore separated and held by friends. Mr. Claypool afterward remarked: . "I would have killed the dirty dog if let alone, and now I will .send him to the penitentiary If It takes tbe last cent I've got" Sullivan's friends defend him, while Mr. Claypool's friends, with the peace-loving people, denounce Sullivan.

Ami IIOTT w!int Is tlie character of this Linil wMHi. nft«r BO rrmny nlxirtive af- tpuipts. lui- nt, last come to the birth of annrxntinii:' Along the const of a conslil- erntili-pint of It mlHsloimrloK hnve been established for pome seventeen years now. There ere three English missionaries anil tn.'iny Polyneslnti converts who act B.M teiiHifrs niul pre.Kchcni. And, whatever opinion may be held of the work of missioimries in gonerM, there nro no two opinions held by those who know the pliice about .(ho good that has been done by these New Guinea men. Their aim has not been to add a number of baptisms to their record, ns savages hang scalps to (heir girdle for an evidence of their success; nor have they measured the Christianity of their converts by the amount of clothing which they wear. But they havo Instilled confidence in the goodness of human nature where there was none before; they have tnnght the advantages of peace and Industry where before thoro was only uneeasing bloodshed and warfare. Thus a tolerably accurate knowledge has been gained of the~habita"bf "such" of the natives as inhabit the soiithern coast line. But of the many thousands who live in the Inferior very little has been discovered. Among snch of the natives as have been visited, one of the most peculiar characteristics Is the inaccessible position in which they frequently place their houses. This, no doubt, Is the direct outcome of the state of constant intertribal warfare In which they have so long existed, and which even now is not altogether stamped out. Some of their houses are built in high trees np on the narrowest and most inaccessible ridges of the mountains. To these bamboo ladders are the only means of approach, and vines are often cultivated to rnn up the ladders to give them strength and make the ascent'and descent easier. Other tribes—and there are many of those living along the coast—build their villages some distance out at sea, on piles of mangrove wood, standing eight or ten feet out of the water. There are villages of this kind built altogether away from the shore, in the shallow waters of the southern coast,' containing as many as 400 or fiOO people and perhaps forty or fifty houses. It Is commonly said, and no doubt is often the cose, that savages eat their vanquished foes in faith that by so doing they inherit from them their noblest qualities; but it appears to be peculiar to the New Guinea unlives to eat their kindred as a token of afTvctlou. A New Guinea boy •was seized nnrt half eaten by one of the many crocodiles that prey upon the coasts of the island. His sorrowing parents slew the offending monster, and rescuing the half of their beloved ton which was still uneaten, they greedily devoured It In their grief. When their kindred die they hang them np, or lay them on a framework of bamboos, for the sun to cleanse the bones of flesh. —Wlille this is going on they keep watch near the corpse, and at Intervals, when their grief becomes too much for them, they visit It and smear their bodies all over with the juices that ate. dropping from the dt-iul body. When decay has (lone its work the bones are cleaned, and some of (hem are buried, while others are worn as ornaments by the survivors, and the skulls decorate their houses. In other tribes the bftdies 'nre buried in a sitting posture up to the neck, and n vessel is placed over the head. In these cases tho' skull alone Is preserved for ornament, the restof tho body being left beneath thasoll. But though so barbarous in some of their habits, the natives of this place are far superior to those of Australia in most ways, if/my of them cultivate plants for food. Some of them nmke pottery which they exchange for saoro with those, situated in more fertile districts than themselves. Others devote all their time to catching fish, and these, too, they barter for cocoanuts or yams or bananas, while most are clever at fashioning and carving weapons of offense and shields, and many can make, n tolerable kind of cloth from the bark of trees, good canoes or serviceable bows and arrows. The sago industry, especially,; is a valuable one. So much food can bo produced with ..so little labor, and the tree grows well and abundantly in New Guinea. The method of obtaining the sago is to cut down the tree and remove a slice of bark from the upper surface of the felled,trunk. Tho inner wood of the tree, which ia throughout a kind of pith, Is then pounded down with rough instruments made for the purpose into the trough formed by the firm outer bark of the tree. As this pith is ponndcd down it is taken out in vessels formed of the sheathing leaVcs of the sago palm and carried to another trough near by, formed, like the first, of the bark of another sago palm. Here it is pressed through a rough sieve, formed again of fibers from the sago palm, into water, where the starchy part dissolves and settles in the bottom as a sediment. This sediment, though .not the granulated sago of -commerce, is the form In which the natives erft the food, and it makes excellent cakes or mush. Another well known production of New Guinea ; ls the bird of paradise, the most beautlfh'l and gorgeous perhaps, except the peacock, of all known birds. There are many different kinds of them, but all are bcantiful to the eye, though the noises that they make are somewhat trying to the ear. They are very shy and difficult to obtain, but by caution, cleverness and exceeding great patience the natives succeed in kilHng them In snares or with blunted arrows, so as not to injure their plumage.—Cor.

The great fishery of this region Is that for the sturgeon and its kindred; also for the salmon, white salmon and knife fish. The sturgeon family attains to an enormous Size, especially the beluga, which sometimes measures twenty feet In length and weighs 2,500 pounds, thongh specimens of over 1,000 pounds are rare. The sewruga Is also a giant, but the other sturgeons ar« seldom taken above six feet in length. The number of these giants disposed of annually at Astrakhan has in some years been enormous—800,000 sturgeons, 100,000 belugas, and millions of the others. No wonder that there are complaints' of the failure of the supplies, and, as is usual where ignorance prevails, the mischief is attributed to every cause but the rigut. "It Is because of the steamboats," says the monjlk, «nd forthwith the monjlk hate* the sight of a Kteamboat.

A fashionable craze among men ol small means IB to have a bank account and to make all payments by.check. The savings banks ordinarily do not permit deposits to be drawn out by checks, and when money is taken from the institution the pass book haa to be presented to the cashier, and most of the national banks of this city require $500 to be placed In their hands before they will open a current account. A few of the larger institutions require a. deposit of from $1,000 to: $5,000. The banks stipulate that the deposit shall never be leas than the sum they require to open tho account, but this rule Is not enforced In all banking institutions. The deposit of f WW ia in some of tbe small Institutions not enforced, and very often If the accounts could be seen the balance to the credit of the depositor is only a few dollars. "Payments by che«k are tho safest way of settling any account," said a cashier of a bank to a reporter. "If you give a man a check ho must indorse it before he can pet. the money, no that you always have his receipt. Then the money is paid by the bank to some responsible person, so that the payment con always be proved by tracing how the money was paid. Should a check be lost payment can always be stopped.

London, with tho plunta grown in them hist winter. The essence of the invention is that all light and heat shall previously pass tnrough a shallow layer of water. The water is found to exercise great control over temperature, protecting plants entirely from frost in winter and from excessive direct heat in summer. The application Involves no difficulty: In the case of a garden frame a sliding "water light," about three Inches deep, is made to flt over tbe frame containing the plants, the only difference from a glass light being that it holds water and U always jjOiio«l lu * Oat position.
