VIM.-A. L'Ur.ivAf.E, Au;irns, AFKICA. January S, l?>Ti. My Dear I'apa: „ ... Wn left Paris Wa dtesgrtwWy early" hour in a cold rain and dampness and turned our farss. southward. The scenery w»s .'Irsary and nnattrkctlTE and we did nothing bnt read until at dark we renched Lyons. It was necessary to leave Lyons early In the morning in order to t?aSn Marseilles that night, so we hail no idea of the place. At Marseilles it was raining very hard, bat Elsie,, Miss' Rtss«r and I went out and made a tour ot Rome of the muddiest streets 1 have seen .outside of Illinois. At three, we left for Algiers on the "bille de Madria-" The view of yareetlles from the harbor is very picturesquei Tha hills risfc abrupl- ' ly from the water's edge and the tall houses with their sharp peaked roofs reach as far back as the eye can see: Upon a high, bluff overlooking the whole city and the harbor with its ships from all nations is the little church ot Notre Dame, that rings out at matins and vespers » prayer for those wno "go down-to _the^sea In ships."

Upon reaching the top of the liiil and having paid a visit to one Arabic home we wound about through a number of crooked streets down long (lights of stairs past shops and cafes to the place wbich-we were .searching. Tho house was built opon the saiie plan as the former orrty the richer man had several floors. As we entered there was a great scurrying around not nnlike that made when disturbing a flock of geese. The Arab had a variety of ages among hH wlvps, some bflng quite old and two apparently young girli The youngpr ones are obliged 1 to do all the drudgery and are bought for thafc purpose. There were no places to otore cooking utensils but in the corner on the floor. In entertaining company the older wives sit upon the floor, the younger ones bring coffee and with mttch ceremony one is invited to partake of their hospitality. The best class of Arabs never open tbp.lf homes to strangers, so we were obliged to content ourselves with the view of the life we had ; seen.~I could not help but pity the poor creatures whose lives were spent in such prisons. The men look so disagreeable, so filthy and evil that It hardly seems as if they could be ben- THE LIFE Thfr.' Eul Bui b."ir.

When we reached Algiers we roused ourselves to go out on deck to see the lights of the city shining out in long lines across, the bay; with, .every motion of the waves beautiful flashes of phosphorescent light, which brightened up the sides of the ship. Sharks were swimming and making serpentine tracks In the water behind us and beyond the city on tlie hills we could see the glimmering lights from dozens of Tillas, scattered over their sides. There was the usual shout and .Babel of tongues that one always hears In this country when nearlng the quay and in the light we could see the dusky 1 faces of the Arab porters, who stood ready to setee the bags of any unwary passenger whose grip upon his worldly possessions was not sufficiently firm.,, We -were soon stowed away - in- carriages and driven with galloping horses over hard roads up and down hill out to "Mustapha Superior" to the Villa li'Olivage. We are cosily settled in several rooms of an old Moorish villa, that has no comforts of modern Ufa, "- but under the tasteful care of our American hostess is artistically ailed up with oriental hangings, rugs and divan's. All houses here- are built about a court, that is made into a bower of roses and vines with fountains and birds to add to the charm. The floors are tiled and the walls are a mixture of rubble sto,ne and. mortar, made exceedingly thick to keep out the intense heat of the summer. A frame or brick house is unknown,'and indeed wood IB so scarce and expensive that tiles are used as every .possible substitute for it. It has been delightful to tlnd the air mild and warm, and the sun magnificently bright. The vegetation is almost tropical in its luxuriance, and palm, orange, lemon, fig and olive trees are everywhere. " The hedges upon the road sides are cacti and huge century plants, that are exceedingly fine. The graceful pepper tree with its pink blossoms and the palm.treea line most of the avenuei, and the groves are largely made) up of the eucalyptus trees. Mignonette borders all ot the Sower' becis and daffodils fringe every roadside and cover the< hills. Cherry and apple trees are in bloom. The bamboo, banana and-pomegranates are In all of the gardens and hundreds of plants carefully guarded in,the conservatories at home are little better than weeds here.'Gorgeous geraniums receive no respect and the pretty candytuft covers all of the pastures. In the gardens the air la oppressive with the sweet jasmine arid lilies. The hills, are covered with vineyards and the valleys . filled with orange groves. The beautiful lanUna grows In huge; bushes along the hedges and myrtle and Ivy bide all of the bare places. From the hills the views are unsurpassingly lovely. Our first day of Bight-seeing was a tramp through the old quarUr of the city to Visit the harem of an Arab who possesses aeven wives.. Our Arab guide, wishing to show us great honor took us to his own home and with great pride displayed bis pretty wife and child With evident regret he told us that he was too poor to own more, than one. The house was all lighted from above. Mats and cushions l»y about on the floor, but there was no other furnishing. The .floors and parts of the walls were of beauti- - ful blue and white tiles. To reach tola place we had been led up winding streets to the top of oije of -the hills upon which the city is built, a climb of 376 ft. We bad passed on the way most curious places and people. ' Negroes from tho desert shiuing and black, dressed in Ulthy rags; water carriers with pitch- erf on their heads similar to those carried in the time of Abraham; women in great baggy trowserti, their heads wrapped in voluminous folds of white cloth and their faces all veiled.but their great black eyes that peer' curiously at «pe as they puss by. Arabs of every CJasMome wefi dressed with red elbaka, blue trowaen and snowy turbans; oth- era' With filthy rags on their .aeai^snd ulthy cloaks on their backs, some alt- ting In tha mm, othem,. sipping, coffee in dea like cafea. Mereh*nta of every kind*«-*«ittiBff la tacts- tiny shops wttfc 4fc*tar ware* before them. All the timo we were gating at the shops and people w» had to exercise much caution to e*«ftjw coilUion with those e«m- efited.ln any way. Algiers has been held by the French nearly sixty jtears, yet the people are no better than they were nearly one hundred years ago. The same laziness exists and the same propensity to lie and steal. The streets and squares are panoramas of ever changing and novel sights;.every nation seems to be represented. The numerous French soldiers and zouaves in their scarlet uniforms mipglibg with the white, yellow, blues and greens of the Arabs and Jews make a very brilliant and Interesting picture. The several evenings of our stay here was made memorable by an earthquake, that rattled the doors and windows and gave the beds a gentle shake, but only a few noticed the shock, as it was near midnight. Today we accepted an invitation to visit a most beautiful villa, owned tjy a rich Scotchman; the house is partly an old Moorish palace ' dating three hundred years back. .Itis decorated with tiles of most beautiful designs, which, are now worth thousands of dollars as Moorish tile making'is one of the lost arts. .The windows'have the identical iron grating that shut in the dark eyed maidens who longed for liberty beyond the narrow walls. The present owner has added large rooms to the old palace and fitted it up in charming Moorish manner. As the sun seta the air becomes cool and a fire is necessary, and as we g.ith- ei about it we think of the strange people and wonderful providence that landed six young, women on the shining shores of Africa. With much love to-you. Yours, lovingly, . . • • EMILY. From Lyndon. Feb. 2.—The W. C. T. U, have established a reading room, at the office of C E. Moore, police justice and jeweler. A cosy little library comprising a choice selection of books and a miscellaneous collections of magazines, newspapers, adorn their tables. , More books to be added this week Tnis is cer- a very commendable measure on fe part of the ladies, and helps to answer that very pertinent question: "Where is your boy to-night V" A pleasant, , comfortable room; .well lighted, with plenty of choice reading matter in the line of books, magazines and papers, furnishes a resort for young men far preferable to the perfume ladened air of the saloon, with; the everlastiag click of billiard bills, which; are generally manipulated by specimens bf humanity who have gone far over to the bad. Young man, come to the reading room! Adon S. Morris, our new postmaster, is making arrangements'to accept of his new charge. If he handles the mails as adroitly as his fingers are wont to slip'over the keys of his piano the mails will get properly distributed In a hurry • Revival meetings are still continued at the Methodist church. Nearly one hundred conversions are reported and still the Interest continues. Lacy Smith,'who has been here on a visit to his parents and friends, returned to his home in Nebraska'to-day.

Among hla •earliest and strongest .recollections. was a peculiar feature in the burial ceremonies of the hero of Tripoli, Commodore Edward Preble, in Portland, 1807.

"I have not tast«l truffles for the past llftpen yenrH." —"But you used to .be. exceedingly fond of them when I knew you long ago, doctor." "Very trne, but I cnnnot bear the sight of them since I wns 'truffled' myself." A look of puzzled surprise appeared on every face. " ' "It Is a melancholy story," resumed the doctor Riully, "and as I huve nothing more important to talk about meantime, I may . as well tell it to yon now." I ' After a moment's silence, during which he seemed to recall deeply painful recollections, the doctor began. i "Yon know that I wns attached to the navy for many years as a physician. I was aronnd the world several times, and I hivrc experienced all sorts of cnrious an<5 , dramatic adventures. ! "But It was in 1872 that I met with the moat tragic of them all. I embarked at that time on board the new frigate the Lesslve, charged to make a cruise In tho southern sens. We had a splendid voyage. . "Not ft single patient was on board. Hence, having nothing to Occupy my time, the days dragged henvlly on me. The monotony was almost unbearable. My only diversions were at mess. "I always miulc it a point to remain at table as long as possible, first to kill time; ami second for the pleasure of the meal, as onr cook was a man of real genius in Jii« department. Ho had a special taste »n the concoction of mushroom sauce, such as I never knew before or since. An ape- rient, ..spicy, delicious sauce. "He WHM, besides, very proud of his superior merit in this respect and treated us to his sances as often as possible. With the sauces that he made one could eat a hen that had died of old age and think it was spring chicken." Tho doctor ceused speaking for an instant and smacked his lips In memory of these past delicacies. "I ended by becoming a very Intimate friend of tills talented cook," ho continued. "His name was Ammlee, and he had been favored with an education greatly above his position. We often talked over our voyages, science and the art of cookery, and we agreed with one another on a variety of matters. At length It happened that one fine evening in August tho Leaslvecost anchor beforfa beautiful green Island, not even as yet explored, as it does not figure on the maps. We had no sooner stopped than Amedee, wishing to give the captain a little agreeable surprise by serving up soina fresh fruits, told me that he was going ashore In thelltlloboat known as the cabbage packet, and he Invited me to accompany him. I accepted with pleasure, and, without giving notice to any one, we entered the boat and soon reached the shore. An hour afterward we were prisoners among a tribe of savages, hideously painted and tattoed, and while they led us nwny we hod to witness tlie agonizing sight of the Lesslve weighing anchor and proceeding on her way." Dr. Patesson here emptied a gloss of champagne to culm tho emotions excited by ao painful a reminiscence. . "Wo were expecting every moment tc be massacred," he went on, "but they contented themselves with putting lis in the guard of a huge' sort of devil savage, armed with a ponderous club. "This unwelcome attendant did not leave us for an Instant chirlng^ the night, and we could see him at times smock his chops and "rub his stomach in a way that "Allhoiieh I ivn<i rlnily pxpTtlnc tM* Df •»•«." n-iiltMi'il I IIP 'lnrt'ir, "1 w:t« prnn- trntril wh'-n 1 Ivnril it, nnil rlio trufll.'* onlv jxi'h'il to TUV co'i^f <*rnn1ion.

SHOP OFPOH1TE POST OfFICK OIT FOUJRTH BTRKET The next morning I was awakened by a loud fizzing. It was Amedee. who was being fried by his former servant in a mas« of mushrooms. "I could not help feeling overjoyed— first, because my companion waa no more favored than myaclf; and, secondly, because I knew that the new cook would respite me for a while longer, as he had his stock of prisoners renewed. "But I was not only respited—I was savedl" "What! saved?" inquired the guesta, all speaking at once, "Yes, miraculously saved I The successor of Amedee, who, I need hardly tell you, wns not an expert in the matter of mushrooms, had fried my companion in a poisonous species of that root. And so, while the entire tribe were twisting and writhing in the throes of an Indescribable colic, I seized my opportunity and made my escape to the shore. "The Lesslve, which had not been able to wait for us before, had now come back In search of us. "I was sick for over a year after my escape, and I have had an unspeakable aversion to truffles ever since. But as for mushrooms, I almost adore them!"

But they did not ronst us either the next day or in tho following few day«. W^ afterwards learned that this respite was solely due to the fact that owing to a recent victory, the Inrder of the tribe was abundantly supplied with prisoners of war. >. •' • One morning Amedee suddenly uttered a cry of joy. He had jniit spied at the foot of a big tree a large number of excellent mushrooms. He filled his pockets with them, and tluit name evening,'after having gathered' all the herbs that lie required, he cooked an opossum with the famous sauoo. , "We actually cried with joy as we eat them. Our Jailer, after having tasted^ them, uttered such a ery of pleased surprise, that the king, or chief, rushed to our presence. In less than five minutes he had devoured all that remained on the plate. ' ' "On the following day Amedee, despite his horror and repugnance, was forced to cook a prisoner's leg in the same manner. • "While he was'engaged In preparing this horrible dish I was sitting sadly at the foot of a tree. I was thinking that my friend was certainly saved ai.d that I was as certainly lost. - "It wa» only a question of a short time until I should bo fricasseed by the hand of my friend Amedee and eaten In mushroom sauce. "While musing on this unpleasant idea 1 was medinnically digging the soil with sa piece ot stick which I had in my hand. Xu exclamation of surprise burst from my lips. I had. juat turned up a truffle, an immense, sweet scented truffle, as fine as any of tho«» of Perlgord. . "1 callud Amedee, and having shown him my discovery, we set to work digging trie BO^. We fonnd that truffles abounded on all Bides. That same even- Ing the king dined so sumptuously that he wanted to pass a fish 1 bone through AmodooV nose as a compliment to hU culinary skill. . "During the following week tlie entire tribe ditliiot cat less than flvo times a day. Amedee, however,, wore a melancholy air. " 'Listen to tne, doctor,' he said at the «nd of the eighth day, 'I have bad news for you. The stock of prisoners IB nearly out and the king's 'chief minister, who has Ix-cu HpiKiinted tny scullion, has given ms to understand that yon must be cookod and truffled.
