A4IACE OF DWYARFS. LITTLE AFRICANS WHo FIGHT WITH POISONED SPEARS. They Are Cannibals and Live by Hunting-No Strangers Are Al t lowed to Enter Their Country -Becoming Extinct. When Explorer Stanley traced the Congo, the great African river, to its mouth, he heard at Nyangwe of fierce dwarfs, who were said to live in great forests to the north, and to be most in tractable little creatures, fighting like demons with poisoned spears and arrows, eating the bodies of their fallen foes, having no settled abode, but wandering from place to place through the forests. It was thought these stories were greatly exaggerated by Arabs, who wished an excuse for declining to send an escort with Stanley on his way down the river. It was not until 1885 and 1SS6 that four of our explorers discovered the Batwa dwarfs spread over a great area in that part of the Congo Basin which is directly south of the great southern bend of the river. In one season Grenfell and Von Francois found them in large num be...

WILLING HANDS. Ihank God for the willing hands That are honest, and brave, and true, That lay not folded, but labor hard To do what there is to do. Rich gems of the world are they, Where Fancy is drown'd in fact, Where Time is a thing of reality, And to live is to think and act. Thank God for the willing hands That are gentle, and soft, and kind That quiver not at sight of pain, But are ready the wounds to bind. Whose gift is a gift of love More precious than tongue can tell That lingers light on a suff'rer's brow Till he sleepeth, and "doeth well." AUNT ABBIE'S SALVE. BY RANDALL AYLMER.

M1AN'S WORLD. ANT' LITERATURE FOR FEIfiNINE READERS, NOW MUCH FoR A SIXGLE DRESS? --'o produce sufficient silk to make a ess requires more time and capital than most people would imagine. If we take gne and one-quarter pounds as the weight 3'.of pure silk required this would be equal to two pounds of raw silk. To produce two pounds of raw silk would require the entire silk obtained from 7000 to 8000 ,worms, allowing a percentage for death by disease and other casualties. It may be interesting to state that these young wormsiwhen newly hatched would scarce ly weigh one-quarter of an ounce, yet in the course of their life, which only lasts some thirty to thirty-five days, they will comsume about 300 to 400 pounds of leaves and increase in weight about 9000 times. Consumers of silk will not won der at its high value when they consider that to raise two pounds of raw silk so much time and money are required.
