and a Ha'f Before
In tho year 16S5." Tonty say in
his memoir. "I arrived at the fort ol
Chicago where M. De la Duraulave
comma n Jed." This was the first fori
here of which we h-ive any account
Edward G. Mason wrtei in the New
England Magazine end was probably
a stockade btructura constructed by
Durantaye in 1(J85. Tonty also
inarched from the Illinois with six-
teen Frenchmen and two hundred In-
dians to take part in this campaign
and according' to one account he came
by the way of Chicago and mustered
some recruits here perhaps from the
garrison of the fort He led his purty
across the country to Detroit where
he met Durantaye and two other fa-
mous pioneers. La Forel and Daniel
Greysolon Du Lhut from whom the
present city of Duluth takes its name.
They had a large body of French and
Indians from the upper lakej and the
united force pushed on to Niagara and
joined the governor general's army
at the rendezvous on the southern
shore of Lake Ontario near the Seneca
country. Two thousand five hundred
men mnrched through the wilderne
toward the great town of the ben ecu
with Durantaye Tonty and Lhut an
their couries de bols in the van. In
the narrow deiile the advance sep-
arated from the main body came
upon an ambush of three hundred
Indian warriors who closed upon' their
rear with yells of triumph thinking
this detachment to bo the whole
army But better leadci-3 for such a
fray there could not be than these
three intrepid Frenchmen who held
their wood rangers steadily to their
work until t.uddonly through the.
forest came the main body headed by
four companies of the fishtins
Carignan regiment and the Senecas
suddenly abandoned the field. Their
great town was taken and destroyed
and down to our own time their de
scendants knew the scene of their
crushing defeat by the French as Dya
godiyu or ' The Plaoa of a Battle."
EGYPT EVER THE SAME.
Georgia's Old Capitol.
lfte old capitol buuding of Oetsria
at Milledgeville which was burned
the other day was built in 1S03 but
since the capital of the state was
moved to Atlanta it has been used as
a college for girls. The ordinance of
secession was passed under its roof as
was ine new constitution under which
Georgia renewed her relations with
the Union and all the men of the
state of national reputation made
their local fame within its walls.

The characters in the "Thousand
and One Nights" may be almost im-
agined to step ont of their set ng of
words and to take form and g-f ow with
the generous warmth of life before
one's very eyes. The natives still
drink the same coffee and out of th 3
same cups; they sm ke the same
oipes; they wear generally the same
dress; they play generally the same
primitive instruments that whisper
the same strange aud plaintive tones;
the funeral - processions wend their
way along the streets as of old; the
popular festivals of moolids are still
observed with the same untiring
capacity for enjo-ment; the public re-
citers still practice their profession
before adtniring crowds; the water-
carriers still carry their burdens no
welcome to thirsty lips; except ia the
houses of the rich and thoroughly Eu-
ropeanized food is still eaten with the
fiug'ers and in the same manner and
the hands are washed ia the same
basin i and ewers; the mosque of El
Aziiur still attracts its crowds of stu-
dents. Even the old wooden loclcs and keys
are still in use and the water jars are
still kept cool in the lattice work of
the overhanging mushrabiyeh window
frames Instances of this sort might
be multiplied a hundred-fold. It is
indeed a wonderful change and con-
trast that is presented to the eye when
you leave the European and en
ter the native quarter. And th
mind and feelings turn in unison and
become attuned to the changed scene
ine sense oi taaing pars ia a new
and different life steals over you an
yon temporarily throw off your affin
ity with the West and the nineteenth
century. The clock of time is for th
moment put back for you.

After a while one of the drummers
attempted to opjn up a conversation
llis first remarks were civil enough
una were promptly answered. i nen
the dm miner made bold enough to
ask him his business.
"What line do you carry?" he asked.
"I beg your pardon I don't under
stand you" replied the lawyer.
"Traveling from New York?"
"Oh I am in business for myself."
Then came a Ion? interval in which
no one spoke. Finally in despera-
tion the drummer asked: "May I in
quire what you sell?"
"Certainly" replied tho lawyer; "
am selling brains. "
Another long interval and then ths
drummer turned to one of his more
