war AFRICA'S GREAT PBODUCT* ; m ! Sd ;V Ivory Imimtrr and It* UaliNi w the S1ht« Trails It ban been suggested by a recent writer that the extinction of the African elephant would achieve the suppression of the African slave trade, for if their were no ivory to carry to the caast the Arabs would have no occasion to main- tun that fell institution in its foulest form. On the same line we have heard . it argued that the ultimate patrons of African slavery are those men among us whose amusement depend* upon the per­ fection of the sphere wrought out of the choicest {area of the elephant's tooth, "i table and grasped tho stranger's " and- "Did yon," he cried, with the clinging confidence of » Chicago widow, "did yon see that mouse.*--Pittsburgh Dispatch. THE ARIZONA KICKER. " • Whistling Nnismeeti. *""• IhSWn on State street yesterday after­ noon a well-fed merchant stopped a re­ porter and said: "I say, young man, do you ever try to correct pubtic nui­ sances?" "Oh, yes!" said the young man with a pleased smile. "Well, then, why don't you say some­ thing about, those d--d fools that go and tho e ladies whose esthetic taste j *b"lVl_ _I went^0 would l>e offended with other than the soft, creamy, delicately-grained surface for their toilet requisites, which no pro­ duct but ivory caii give. Many will re­ gard this lon^chaiu of responsibility as the mere fantastic creation of a philan­ thropic enthusiast, .and certainly the abolition of the slave trade witl be a slow process if it depend* upon the es­ tablishment of an anti-ivory-using leagne in the Inrndoirs and dining rooms of May fair, or the billiard saloons of the Htrurut. The prospect that the problem wjjl be solved by the extinction of the great pachyderm is also remote. The yearly destruction of elephants is enor­ mous, and obviously there is a limit to the supply, but it promises to hold out- far a long time yet. Occasional timet of scarcity have been experienced, as. far instance, during the recent blackade of the East African coast by Germany, bat the shipment to Europe continues with a remarkable regularity. The bed late last night completely worn out, and I was waked at an unnaturally early hour this morning by an infernal idiot who thought he could whistle 'Annie Laurie' to the tune of 'Anld Lang Syne.' I came down to breakfast and finuuV my -little boy whistling 'Down Went MeGinty to the Bottom of the Sea." Where in the world that child ever learned that outlandish melody is more than I can understand. I said to my wife, in my interne wrath: 'Maria, if that boy ever whistles again in my presence, I'll rend him to a reform school.' There was an exchange of words between us, and the result was a s<vne, a crying spell, a spoiled break­ fast. and a wrathy departure. I got on the car, and an impertinent imp on the back platform greeted mc with the dis­ torted strain* of'Home. Sweet Home.' I got off the car and walked down to the office, and it seemed to me that everybody on the street was whistling. "By the *time 1 perennial talk of an ivory famine has as cy uie time t reached the office yet come to nothing, a rise in pric#be- ! |he!*e a \nei}}e>' ,°.f whistles tu my ing sufficient to stimulate tne supply and bramr th.e .sUn.U. whistle.

How long that will last it is im­ possible to say, but as Africa is opened up the elephant's bounds will be cir- scribed, and some fine day the last wild animal of the species will receive his quietus. Fifty years is the period which one authority' in" the trade-yisri- tares upon for the practical drying up of the ivory supply. We obtain a certain proportion of our supplies of ivory from Asia, but the bulk and the best come from Africa. Indeed, a great |>art of what is nominally East Indian is really African, for it is sent from Zanzibar and Mozambique to Bom­ bay. and such parts as are not required for bangles and carved work are shipped to England. More or less comes from Burmah, Siam, Cochin China, Ceylon, Sumatra and Java, the Siamese l>eing the best of the Asiatic, which is apt to discolor. The African is shipped from brain--the shrill __ whistle, the loud bass whistle, the,boy's disjointed treble, and the man's hide­ ously smooth whistle, the tlfe-like scream, and the long-drawu, hollow sound of the flute. Oh, it was madden­ ing! I took the elevator, and the boy tliat carried me up was making a sibi­ lant noise through "his troth. I glared at him savagely, and he turned white and looked startled. He afterward told my office boy that 'his jags is ratty this mornin'.' Well when I got into the office my boy said: 'Good morning, Mr. So-and-so,' and went on, softly whistling to himself, 'I Had Fifteen Dollar^ in My Inside Pocket.' 'Boy" I cried, with all the rage of a man whom desparate injury had driven to madness, .'Boy, if yon don't stop whistling in this office I will throw you down the elevator shaft, and send your mangled remains home to your mother, with my best com­ pliments.' He stopped. "It wasn't very long, however, before a customer came iu to see me on busi­ ness. I said with my most gracious If you will kindlv wait Seoegambia, Guinea, the Congo, Ben-! 8mile' ̂ T/fTJn/ - - - - • moment, Mr. Blank, I shall be at lib­ erty.' He sat down a guela and other places on the west ooast; Zanzibar, Mozambique and Sofala on the east: Cape Town on the south; and from Tunis, Tripoli, Alexan­ dria and Cairo, being brought down from the interior in caravans. London is the great market for ivory, and buyers both for home and abroad a|tend the four series of sales he'd at the London docks. Liverpool through its direct trading connection .vith the west coast, receives a certain amount of ivory and has a series of minor sales, and Antwerp is now trying to cut into the trade as an outcome of the Belgian efforts in the Congo Free State.

We extract the following from the last issue of the Arizona Kicker, which j was only a half sheet, and which seemed to have been printed on a cheese- press : EXPLANATORY--We owe our readers an apology for the shape and appear­ ance of the Kicker this week, and shall proceed to give it. Last Sunday we went over to Silver Bend to see the boys and rake in a few subscriptions. Our office vrtvs left in charge of a chap just from the East who claimed to be George Alfred Townsend. As we had never met George we did not feel like calling the stranger a liar. We intended to return Tuesday morning, but in this country man pro­ poses aud mules and other things buck against him. The infernal, lop-eared, stiff-legged, pig-headed, limb-spavined beast which \w> rode--a fit counterpart of our cotemporary down the street- threw us nine times, in going thirteen miles, and we arrived at the Bend badly used up. We hadn't yet raked in u dollar when Lew Smith, a pug-ugly whom we assisted to run out of our town four weeks ago, sounded the war- cry and began to encourage the Bendere to hang us. Most of 'em wera on s drunk that day, and : the propasition at once found favor. Under the pretense that we, as editor, publisher, proprietor and city editor oi the greatest weekly in the* West and which runs as an annex, but under the same roof, a grocery, butcher-shop, feed store, shoe store, hardware and cutlery, had been peeking to break down the so­ cial barriers of the mighty West, they hunted up a rope and selected a tree. We appealed, but it only added to tlieit desire. We tried to argue, but they wouldn't have it. Our editorial person was laid hold of and hustled along to a rope dangling from a limb, and as we looked over the crowd and failed to catch a sympathetic eye we felt our time had come. The boys were white about one thing. Drunk as they were, they had sense enough to realize that a great editor could not wind up his earthly affairs in a satisfactory manner, under fifteen minutes, and on motion of a half-breed, who onoe succeeded .in borrowing half a dollar of us, the tilht was increased to twenty. We wanted tojirgue the case, but it was no go. "VN e started in on a speech, but they whooped us down. By the time that we got down to business five of our twenty minutes had fled. During our editorial career we had assisted at several amateur executions. We had always supposed that ii the crowd were satisfied the victim was bound to be. It never seemed much ol an effort for him to let go of earthly matters, and we have sometimes won­ dered why more of them didn't come for­ ward and asked to be pulled up to a limb. Our ideas underwent a great change as we sat on a meat-box under a dangling rope, while the minutes hur­ ried away like a jackass rabbit taking the lead of a prairie lire on a windy day. Any m&n who believes he can do busi­ ness under such circumstances is mis­ taken. He feels restless and unsettled, and bis mind seems to be distributed over acres of space. It was after we had lost twelve min­ utes of our time fooling around that wc started in on our last will and testament and we hadn't written three lines ot that before we suddenly recollected that we were without a blood relative on earth. As to leaving the Kicker and its annex to any galoot iu town was not to l>e thought of. and we finally made out a bill of sale to that fellow knowi* as William of the Hill, who has several The undersigned is prepared to do all jobs In " the line of Digging Wel!s, Repairing Pumps, Cementing Wells, or •"ill put In ITOOT Pumps On short notice and warrant satisfaction.

George had not been at home for three weeks, ami his nerves were shaky. He poised his cue and sighted at the pink ball. At that moment a mouse popped out of the wall just opposite the pink ball. George aaw the mouse. He saw its bright eyes, and he took off bis hat and wiped his forehead. He looked about the billiard room to see if anybody else saw it. All had seen it but they did not show it. The game went on. George shot again, he drew his cue the mouse its head out of the hole. George it. The perspira tion rose upon his forehead. He took off his hat. looked at the mouse, wiped his brow, felt his limbs to see that he was awake, and glanced nervously about the room to see if anybody else had caught sight of the miscreant. Apparently nobody had seen it, and George was bathed in perspiration. The mouse disappeared when he moved. and his shot was made without a earron. Was it fate or chance that brought that mouse ont every time George shot? It will never be known. A stranger entered the billiard room •adstood a minute to watch the bad game then being played. "Bv George," h» cried, "look at that mouse." George braced up. He wiped his forehead, and chased arouad the witnessed.

Gladstone's Daily Lire, Mr. Gladstone lives a very regular life st his home. He breakfasts lightly about 7 o'clock, and . shortly before 8 walks to the church for pravera. -To the intelligent observer the sight of tlic great statesman walking to church at this early hour in the morning cannot fail to be interesting. Clad in a long coat, tightly buttoned, with a long shawl t rapped closely around his neck and wearing a soft felfc hat, '.is appear­ ance is decidedly picturesque. Upon his return to the castle from morning prayers, he retires to his study, where lie reads and answers, with the aid erf his secretary, his enormous mass of daily correspondence*. There, is nC regular for luncheon at the cas* tie and it is partaken of by those af home at various times. Iu the after­ noon Mr. Gladstone takes a walk io the grounds, and if the weather is pro­ pitious usually engage? in his favorite exercise of tree chopping. He dines at 8 o^'lock, afterwards reads or writes, and at 10 o'clock retires for the night. Though abstemious iu his habits, lie usually drinks bitter beer with his lunch and a glass or two or claret oi port at dinner. Mr. Gladstone is not in any sense asce'ic, is a generous livet and is a great believer in the virtues of a glass of good port wine. When eur gaged m speaking his fillip is a com­ pound of sherry and egg, which is pre­ pared by Mrs. Gladstone with as much anxiety and care as if it were the el mi of life. Mr. Gladstone never smoked. He acquired his habits at a period when tobacco smoking was generally re­ garded as somewhat vulgar among the better class. -- Correspondence of tlu Philadelphia Times.

Charles Lamb's Writings. The writings of Charlei Lamb are an excellent illustration of the value of re­ serve in literature. Below his quiet, his quaintness, his humor, aud what may seem his slightnesa, the occasional or accidental character of his work, there lies as I said at starting, as in hit life, a genuinely tragic element. The gloom reflected at its darkest in those hard shadows of "llosamuud Gray," is always there, though not always real­ ized either for himself or his readers, and restrained always in utterance. It gives to those lighter matters on the surface of life and literature, among which he for the most part moved, a wonderful force of expression, as if at any moment these slight words and fancies might pierce very far into the deeper soul of things. In his writing, as in his life, that quiet is not the low Hying of one from the first drowsy by choice, and needing the prick of some strong passion or world ly ambition to stimulate him into all the energy of which he is capable; but rather the reaction of nature, after an escape from fate, dark and insane as au old Greek tragedy, following upon which the sense of mere relief becomes a kind of passion, as with one who, hav­ ing narrowly escaped earthquake or shipwreck, finds a thing for grateful tears in just sitting quiet at IKUBO, un­ der the wall, till the end of days.-- London Review.
