Take haphazard a number of people J

them into communities. Let the doc

themselves this division would be in- '
dispensable because the difference which '
exists between the treatment prescribed
say by a- French and by an English doc-
tor has to be experienced to be believed.

feasible I wonder what the result would
be. Or rather I do not wonder 1
should like to have a wager depending
on the issue.
I would wager that all things being
equal position climate circumstance
constitution ages the physical history
of all those communities would be pretty
well of a muchness. They would all suf
fer from the same diseases would beat
them or be beaten by them in much the
same way and would die at about the
same age. Of this I am certain and in
this I believe that the physicians them-
selves would be upon my side that the
medically supervised communities would
be every whit as closely acquainted with
pain disease and suffering before the
curtain finally fell as that one commu-
nity in which no doctors were. All the

destroyer known with boiling water and
other preventives all without success.
At length she found that a portion of tbe
outer boarding of the shed which stood
near this bed was decayed and needed
renewal. When theje boards were taken
away they were found to be alive with
ants which being destroyed disappear-
ed from her flowers and she has had no
more annoyance from them. Often ants
will get into the house closets and into
the food in the same way from some de-
cayed wood near at hand in which they
nest. If their source is looked up when
they come they usually may be unearth-
ed and killed.

MEN WORSE THAN APES.
Revolting easterns of Rons of Um a ft hmm
The cannibalism of the black secret
society known .as the Human Leopards
in the country near Sierra Leone brings
forcibly before us the difference between
the east African and west African hab-
its of eating human fiesh. The Sberbo
cannibals waylaid and killed their vic-
tims and afterward feasted on their
flesh. The cannibalism of the east coast
is of a very different kind. The flesh of
the old people the grandfather and
grandmother of a family is dried and
mixed with condiments and a portion
of this is offered with a dim sort of
sacramental meaning to travelers who
become guests of the family. To refuse
it would be a deadly insult. To accept
it is a passport to the privileged position
of a friend of the house. Many of our
travelers in east Africa have eaten thus
sacramentally of the ancestors of some
dark skinned potentate.
The cannibalism of the west coast is
of a more horrible kind connected with
fetichism the worst developments of
which are peculiar to tbat country. But
there is a hideously genuine appetite for
fresh human flesh still existing among
the negroes of west Africa. This canni-
balism manifests itself in a refinement
of gluttony which has its mild analogy
in the tastes of Europeaus. Yonug boys
are bought from the dark interior kept
in pens fattened upon bananas and fin-
ally killed and bakeJ. To these Thyea-
tean feasts come not only the savapo

HOLES IN THE CANVAS.
Important Discovery Increasing the
Efficacy oC hails.
An Italian sea captain Gio Batta
Vasallo of Genoa has made a very inter-
esting innovation in tho use of sails of
ordinary sailing vessel. He claims that
the force of wind cannot fully lake ef-
fect In a sail 6iuce the air in front of it
cannot properly circulate in the inflated
part and remains stationary immediate-
ly in front of part of the hail pivjier. Ha
avoids this stagnation of air as he calls
it by the application of a number if
small holes in that part of the fail where
the depression is deepest when it is fill-
ed. These holes are re-enforced like a
buttonhole so tbat they will not tear out.
Trials made in various weather have
resulted as follows: With a light wind
a boat with ordinary sails made 4
knots while the new sail increased the
speed to 5 knots. In a fresh breeze the
respective speeds were 7 and h3i knots
and in a strong wind they were o and lu
knots an hour. It stands to rausoa that
the doing away with a layer of air
which cannot escape past the sides of a
sail must increase the efficiency of the
sailboat. Where the wind formerly
struck a cushion of air which acted like
a spring mattress decreasing the actual
pressure of the wind against the canvas
this current of air now strikes the sail
! direct and of course has a greater effl-

couragement from practical sailors as

Football In Africa.
Englishmen are proverbial for taking
their games with them into whatever
part of the world they go. Golf as wo
know is played in the shadow of the
pyramids and in the very heart of the
Himalayas but football in the middle
of darkest Africa is something of an in-
novation. Yet football is rapidly be-
coming popular on the shores of Lake
Is'ya.-sa and at Kotakota which a few
years ago was notorious as the greatest
depot for slaves on the western shore of
the lake mixed teams of black and
white meet every Saturday with as
much regularity as do our home teams
though the local chronicler omits to say
whether Rugby or Association has won
the suffrages of the Xyassa teams. One
startling feature of tbe game is that the
players decline to hamper them.
