ü K ■ ü MEAT IN CENTRAL AFRICA. When the Butcher Murders a Bull the People Get Beef. Travelers in Africa find the standard of living somewhat differ- ent from what they are accustomed to at home. Mary Hall in her book, "A Woman'6 Trek From the Cape to Cairo," throws a strong light upon the condition of market and kitchen in British Central Africa: When the native butcher pro- poses to kill an ox, notice to that effect is 6ent round to the white people on the previous day. Once they were apprised of the fact by the following startling announce- ment: "A bule will be murdered to- morrow morning at 6 a. m." This cold blooded crime, so care- fully premeditated, even to the exact hour, was, however, not com- mitted, as the next morning a sec- ond notice was issued as follows: "The bule ran away this morning, so was not murdered." But this was an exceptional case. I heard one story which is so characteristic of the native that I repeat it. The man who related it told me that the incident ...

A LIVE COAL TRICK. It Teaches Natural Law, Yet Has AH the Appearance of Magic. No one would suppose that it is possible to hold a glowing coal on a piece of linen or cotton without burning the cloth, but that such can be done is easy for any one to prove, and at the same time the ex- periment teaches an important nat- ural law. Every child knows that the tele- phone and telegraph wires are made of copper because that metal is a good conductor of heat and elec- tricity, which is only another form of heat. If a poker is heated in the fire you pick up a cloth to hold the outer end, although it has not been in the fire, because experience has taught you that the heat is con- nected through the metal from the fire to the outer end. This experiment with the flam- ing coal is based upon this princi- ple and the additional one that lin- en and cotton are poor conductors of heat. Take a globe of copper and draw a piece of cloth tightly over it so that there is not a wrin kle at the top. If t...

GOLD AS A BASE METAL. Little Probability That Such a Condi- tion Will Ever Arise. The interesting problem was raised by one of the French reviews recently, What would happen if gold were produced in such enor- mous quantities as to sink in value to the level of the baser metals? The three contingencies discussed were the extraction of gold from sea water, which was dismissed as too expensive to be attainable; the increase from existing mines, which .yvould be negligible from the sensa- tional standpoint of the argument, and the probability of the produc- tion of gold by chemical means. It was the third means of produc- tion which was treated as seriously as the nature of the subject per- mitted, and it was declared that in relying upon the recent progress of experimental physics and of chem- ical synthesis the possibility of the transmutation of the metals could no longer be considered a sim- ple chimera and might become a reality of tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. All these exp...

for Governor, Some Things the F eople Should Know—Persistent Deception and Misrepresentation Exposed. TO THE DEMOCRATS OF HOUS- TON COUNTY: The democratic campaign for gov- ernor has reached a stage where every true democrat and every pa- triotic citizen should be up and do- ing. It is high time the democrats of Texas should take their bearings and reflect upon whither they are drifting. There has been no campaign like it in a generation, and there is more at stake in it than in any campaign since Richard Coke was elected governor of this state and the usurpers of power were driven from office by the lash of public opinion and the determination of outraged people. The campaign of the opposition to Col. Thos. H. Ball is one of the most high-handed and outrageous campaigns ever launched and pros- ecuted in Texas. This statement is made deliberately and after all due consideration of the methods and purposes of those who are leading the fight for Ferguson for governor, and we propose t...
