I met the other day, says a London letter to the New York Times, Mr. H., her Majesty's consul at Zanzibar, on the east coast of Africa, who told me the following tale of this redoubtable per. son, which well nigh outrivals Mr. Rider HIaggard's "She." Mr. IL.'s juris diction extends over an area of 2,000 miles, all of which he is supposed to visit in his cilicial capecity. Lying toward the interior of the country is a range of impregnable mountains, over which reigns supreme a rich and power ful Qlz:enl-liabutu by name. So ter ril le is her reputation, and so greatly feared is she i.S the natives far and wide, that she is never called by her ri htful appellation, but is designat ed as "The Womnan Who Lives Over There," with a wave of the arm toward the frowning his. This queen has two sons, who rule provinces under her to the north and south. She is particular ly a...

A QUEER INDUSTRY. Trading in the Beasts That Live in Menageries. Hunting Parties Sent Every where in Search of Curiosities. The expenditure of hundreds of thou sands of dollars each year in the pro curcmcnt of wild beasts, birds and rep tiles seems like the wicked extrava gaIce of some magnificent potentate, but when it is incurred in the course of trade it furnishes food for thought by the philosopher, talk by the moralist and amusement and instruction for the multitude. Mr. IReiche, a New York dealer in wild animals, has been inter viewed on this subject by a Graphic re porter. "We send out some half a dozen expeditions every year," he said, to different parts of the world. There are three points in Africa to which we send. One goes to the north of Africa and thence to the interior as far as circum stances may diect ate.

When he dies the languare spoken by the tribe will become extinct. The grave of General William Henry Harrison, ninth president of the United States, is on a beautr!ul natural mound near his old residence at North Bend on the banks of the Ohio, fifteen miles be-; low Cincinnati. No monument marks the spot, and the grave for years has remained neglected. Religious Pessimism is carried to an extreme an Russia. In that country there are sects that teach suicide. Re cently eighty-four persons met in a cavern filed with straw. They fired the straw and those who were not buried to death killed each other with hatchets. One faint-hearted fellow escaped. Absinthe was introduced into western civilization by French soldiers after their return home from the Algerian war in 1844. It is a product of North' Africa and the so...
