REHRMAN & CO, Henry F.cBBi --T-TAILOR SO Emt First South slr in Bearch of a purchaser. If the buildings of Tangier are not pleasing, the landscape is most reward-ing. The beautiful curve of the bay, the wide view cf the ocean, tho near hills of gentle acclivity intersected by pleasant valleys, the foliage green in winter, and including such plants as palms, cactus, aloes, eucalyptus, pepper trees, oranjjes and lemons all this was charming. In the distance on the Euro-pean coast we could see Trafalgar, where Nejson fought and died; Tarifa, a name associated with most unpleasant "du-ties," and Gibraltar, with ite command-ing fortress. Here run the atraita which unite the sea to the ocean, and here are the pillars of Hercules, which always have been and always will be lat:i-i-Ts to the traveler and the terchant.-D- . C Oilman in BaKimore Sua QUEER AFRICAN CITY. The Difficulties Encountered by One En- -. deavoriug to Enter Tangiers and What One May See. GILMAN VISITS AN AFRICAN TOWN A Place Where Existence Hinges on the Precepts of the Old Testament and the Arabian Nights. What, is there to see in Tangier, and why do American tourists, after "the run tnrougb Spain," think it quite essen-tial to visit the Barbary coast? I can an-swer for one party. A sagacious friend ' who recently went from the Straits of Gibraltar to the Bosphorus said to us be-fore we left home: "You will see noth-ing more purely oriental than Tangier in 11 your proposed journey." Certainly we have found the place so completely foreign to all our ideas that only the old fashioned word "outlandish" seems ade-quate to describe it. Here is the most western of all the sex-por- ts of northern Africa lying within sight of the coast of Spain and the liock of Gibraltar, a place of 16,000 inhabit-ants, npon whose ways of life and thought European Christian civilization has carcely made an impression. Yet more than 200 years ago this city for a short period belonged to the Engliub crown. It is now the residence of those foreign ministers who are accredited to the sul-tan of Morocco. It is in almost daily communication with France, Spain and Gibraltar, both England and Spain main-taining poBtofiices, with separate bureaus, stamps and mail bags. There are news-papers published here in English and hpanish. The Hotel Continental is so good that there Is a current mot to the uect that the best hotel in Europe may te found in Africa. HARD TO LAND. The English come "for sport,'' the par-ticular attraction being the chase of wild boar, for the which a manual of "hog ticking" has been elaborately set forth. Vet, notwithstanding all this the Moors and the Jews goon in their old fashioned ways as if they were living in the Fif-teenth century Indeed, it is easy to be-lieve that we see in Tangier much of the same sort of life which prevailed in southern Spain 400 years ago before the conquest of Granada with one impor-tant qualification: Tangier has nothing which suggests the learning, the science, . the arts, or even the sacredness of the peat cities of Andalusia when Moorish sway was dominant. The Arabics or Mo-hammedan dominion, without the Arabic enlightenment, loses all the charm which is suggested by what is even now to be seen in Cordova, Granada and Seville. The transit to Tangier is easily made In eight hours from Cadiz, in four hours from Gibraltar, in twelve hours from Malaga, and the traveler may have his choice among many competing steamers of different sizes and diiferent disadvan-tages. The transit over, a landing must bo made. The beach slopes so gradually that large vessels cannot come near the shore, and people, cattle, baggage and goods must all be transferred to lighters and rowboats and thus brought to land. In rough weather the steamer will some-times lie for hours without being able to disembark its cargo, and one company of travelers whom we met returned to Spain without putting foot upon the shore of Africa. When it is rough, but not so rough, passengers are carried ashore in the arms of stalwart Moors, or perhaps ride pa-poose fashion. Fortunately, these de-scendants of the pirates who used to in-fest tho Morocco coasts are capital boatmen, with strong arms and legs, so ' that they may be safely trusted. New perplexities arise when the shores ure reached. In all Tangiers I do not think there is a wheeled vehicle not a gig. a dray or even a wheelbarrow. So gang of porters seizes a traveler's jtrenks, handbags, shawl straps and um-brellas, and transports them up the nar-row and sinuous lanes which lead to the hotel. As I looked from the rowboat to the top of the landing stairs I noticed in the crowd, which was dressed in ail the col-ors of the rainbow and in all tho varie-ties of eastern fabrics, a tall, dark faced Moor, with a capacious turban, a broad, blue flowing robo and a stout staff, end-ing in a pastoral crook. "I am Moham-med," be caUed out, pointing to his heart either to confirm his identity or bis ve-racity, I cannot say which. "The man lam looking for," was my answer. From that hour until our departure Moham-med took charge of us. We did not en-gage him, but he engaged us. His tread was as dignified and steady as that of SaJvini when he personates Othello. His shoulders were broad enough for a Sam-so- n. His voice was deep, rich and mu-sical, like that of Carl Formes. When he was mounted on his favorite mule, leading our cavalcade through tho mar-L-et place, or halting before tho snake charmer, or climbing "the mountain," where foreigners have their houses, he jwas quite magnificent. ' j SIGHTS IN THE CITY. The architecture of Tangier is much more impressive when seen in mass than when seen in detail. Looking toward the city from the steamer in the early dawn the view was beautiful Terrace above terrace rise white, Hat roofed houses, over which tower the minarets of two or three mosques. The city is divided into two parts, through which runs the prin-cipal street, leading from the "water gate" to tho "market gate." Upon the western or highest acclivity is the karbat or citadel a combination of residence, fortress, court of justice and prison a forlorn and unattractive Alhambra. The lhops, the bazars, the dwelling houses Are interesting because so completely different from those to which Europeans re wonted. So is the boys' school that was "kept" just opposite tho door of tho Hotel Continental. Twenty bright eyed tittle fellows, seated on the ground, were taught by on old man in turban and spectacles to repeat over and over again verses from the .Koran in a singsong tone, while cards with the words in Ar Lie were held in their hands. . Solomon's precepts respecting the util-ity of the rod were not forgotten by the tarbaned pedagogue. Hj plied the stick pently but firmly on the backs of the scholars, precisely as in south, em Spain the sellers of Christmas tur-keys drive their bipeds from door to dooe Why Dm the Xartb Quake The earthquake theory which seems most probable, and the one which has the most adherents, is the one which tell us that the "quake" Is caused by an ef-fort f ta.ternal heat to make its escape through a etk part of the surrounding earth crust. How thick the earth's crust is would be a hard matter to find out for a certainty. The German government is now nt work upon a shaft (if it has not been recently abandoned), near Sohlade- - bach, with the object especially 01 ob-taining trustworthy data concerning the rate of increcse in the earth' tempera-ture as it oears the interior. The last statement the writer read cor.cernlng this shaft said that it was at that time 1,302 meters in depth. Iho temperature was about 48 dega. centigrade, equal to about 120 Fahrenheit. If it increases uniformly as the depth increases, as it lias heretofore, the boiling point of water will be reached at about 0,000 meters (providing the shaft could be sunk to that depth), which ' equal to about two miles. At this rate of increase the point at which platinum melts would be found to be at a depth of forty-fir- e miles. According to these figures the earth's crust cannot be more than of its radius. Professor Newcomb, connected with the naval observatory ut Washington, said at the time of the August earth-quake in 1884: "The only common sense explanation of an earthquake, to my mind, is that down in the bowels of the earth, say from 20 to 100 miles beneath the surface, there is fluid matter, boiling at a white heat, which as it gradually becomes cooled, contracts, leaving a space between it and the solid parts, and the heavy weight of the earth abovo the vacant place causes the earth to sink, then you have your earthquake. " --St. Louis Republic Chloroforming Wild Turkey. Jim White owns a patch of ground near this place. The surrounding forest abounds in wild turkeys, and in the spring old Jim spends most of his time hunting their nests and occasionally cap-turing the birds alive. This he accom-plishes in a novel manner, yet the proc-ess is much more matter of fact than sportsmanlike. He first discovers the turkey's roosting place, and then, under cover of dark-ness, he fires a brush heap near the tree, which he has previously prepared, and while the turkey's attention is attracted to the flames Jim creeps up to the tree with his appliance used for making the capture. This consists of several sec-tions of strong bamboo rods, jointed like a fishing rod, and may be extended twenty or thirty feet in length. At the top end is secured a saucer shaped ves-sel, over which a small bottle is fasten-ed, neck downward. To the cork is at-tached a cord, which runs the entire length of the rod. The bottle is then filled with chloroform, and under cover of dark shadows Jim noiselessly elevates the drug to within a short distance of the turkey's nose. He then pulls the string, causing the cork to withdraw and allowing the drug to fall into the vessel. The fluid is at once inhaled, an? the bird presently drops to the ground stupefied. St. Louis Globe-Democr- The First Steamar on the Stlnsisaippl. In the year 1811 Nicholas J. Roosevelt built a steamer at Pittsbnrg, after first getting a permit from Fulton and Liv-ingstone. Fulton furnished the plans for the boat, which was called the New Orleans. It was a stern wheeler of about 200 tons burden, and was also pro-Tid-with sails, which were used when the wind was fair. The hull of this pioneer Mississippi craft was 188 feet in length, 80 feet beam, and the cost of the whole, including engines, has been fig-ured at about $10,000. Roosevelt and his family, with an engineer, pilot and six deck hands, left Pittsburg Oct 11, 1811, and reached New Orleans two weeks later. When the New Orleans rode down the Ohio and out into the broad waters of the Mississippi that Oc-tober morning seventy-nin- e years ago she marked a new era in the history of the "Great West." St. Louis Republic. An Opera Glass Camera, Another detective camera that hen met with considerable success lately is In the shape of an opera glass. It is re-ally an opera gluss with the larger glasses removed and disc plates substi-tuted. The shutter is in the smaller end and a nicely concealed spring operates it. The focus can be adjusted easily, as the screw in the centre is arranged for that purpose. Of course the egatives aro small, but they can be enlarged by any of the many appliances known to the photographic world. Two meniscus lonses of equal focusing powers should be substituted for the concave glasses at the narrow end. New York Evening Bun. More to Come. A Missouri youth whistled at a prayer meeting, and when rebuked he claimed that he had been insulted and drew a knife to carve some one. He was knocked down with a chair and dis-armed, but he and his four brothers pro-pose to see who runs the prayer meet-ings in that neighborhood. Detroit Free Press. Broke! Gadsby Hello, old man!
