" Please wear my rose-bud for love, Papa,"

The gorillas are the terror of Africa
In the gorilla country no lion will liv.
They are man-haters and kill them for
the love of it, leaving the body,
eating it. When they spy a negro
they come down from a tree, hit him
on the head with a club, which they
wield with their hind claw, or carry
him up into a tree, there to murder
him. Their strength is so great that
they will bend the barrel of a ritlo.
Only one live one was ever brought to
England, and that soon died. Several
have been shot, but ihey are tough
customers, and the natives dread them
more than any animal of the African
forests. The gorilla makes a bed like
a hammock, and swings in the trees.
The gorilla is the sworn enemy* of the
elephant, because each derives subsist
ence from the same source. When he
sees an elephant pulling down and
wrenching off the branches of a favor
ite tree, the gorilla steals among the
boughs, strikes the sensitive proboscis
of the elephant a terrible blow with
his club, and drives off the clumsy and
startled giant, shrilly trumpeting his
pain and rage through the jungles of
Ilrave nml Tender.
When Sir John Lawrence was g.iv
ernor-general of India he was told one
day of a little girl who had been taken
ill, and was pining away with grief at
the loss of a very curious pet. . The
pet was a tame ostrich, which the child
had raised from the egg, left by the
ostrich mother in the grass of the park
The little girl's father was the keep
er of the park, and soon after her dis
covery of the egg he died and his suc
cessor was appointed.
Fearing that foxes or jackals would
eat her treasure, or that the cold dews
would destroy it, the little girl carried
the big egg to the bungalow, and buried
it safely in a lidless box filled with dry
white sand. This she took pains to
set out in the sun every day just where
the fiercest rays Would pour on it. At
night she coaxed a motherly hen, whose
own eggs she transferred elsewhere, to
brood over the box.
By-and-bv to the great fright of
the poor hen, a giant chick broke the
shell, and stepped into view. The hen
ruffled her feathers, spread her wings,
The little girl and the ostrich became
fast friends, and one was never seen
without the other. What, then, was
her dismay when the park-keeper took
it into his head that the ostrich was
public property, and must go to the ;
The child was so distressed at the
removal of her pet that her mother
feared she would die. But the mili
tary surgeon who came to see her
thought he knew of something better
for her than medicine, and he wrote a
letter to Sir John Lawrence telling
\iim all about it.
The viceroy was a very great man,
and had pressing aff airs of state to at
tend to, for millions of people looked
to him as their ruler. But lie had a
, very tender heart, and far away in
England he had little girls of his own;
so he wrote a reply by the return mail,
that the ostrich was at once to be
given to its rightful owner, who lost !
no time in getting well.
Does anybody ask, " How can Aunt
Marjorie make a bit of advice <>ut of
this little incident?" Well, you know

A brave heart is always a tender
heart, children. No matter how busy
you are, you may, like Sir John Law
rence, take time to do a kind act for
some one who is weaker than vourself.
The Real Home.
The real home is in the country ;'
and it is something more than a dwell
ing; the field and trees around it are
part of it, and the views from it of j
the landscape, and of distant moun
tains, perhaps, make it unlike any
other place in the world. The country
home with its fixity of surrouudings,
has usually some measure of perman
ence, and the social life formed there
is under the favorable conditions of
-old family associations. Some have
the happy condition of living in the j
home of their fathers, and are sur-1
rounded with objects of precious mem-!
ory, daily mementoes of parental af j
Action and instruction.
The home which it makes is the
best thing of farm life. There is a
necessity of permanence, and as there
is no sudden or great accumulation of
Avealth, or large increase, the family ;
is free from that discontent which us- j
ually comes with sudden or great ac- ;
tions of their condition that the farm
er's family is in that " fixity of sur
roundings" which favors their highest ;
culture.— Country Gentleman.

ULA' KWELL'S ISLAND.
A Reporter** V|„ir to New York** Nolcil
Prison -llow Convicts nro Received.
A Tribune reporter who visited
Now York's famous pen .1 institution
says: To tho summer pleasure-setker
who passes up and down the East
river, Jilackwell's Island appears an
attractive spot, its natural charms
being too many to bo quite spoiled
even' by its stern and forbidding edi
fices. A glimpse of several gangs of
men, clad in the hideous uniform of
State convicts, steadily toiling in the
hot sun, under supervision of anno I
patrolling keepers, presents tho initial
idea to the gazer of tho suffering en
dured by its popula'ion from the hard
toil and iron dis ipline exacted and
cnfor< ed in th it pen d institution.
It WJI ; early 11101 ning, and sixteen
newly arrived pri oners wer being
put through their preliminary exer
vts s in a large rhumb *r on the ground
lloor, dignitied with the style and title
of *• Reception-Room." At a desk
erected in an elevated position, h s
book recording admissions beford him,
sat Hall-keeper Michael Kennedy, on
the opposite side, rang, d in rows, were
numerous large baths and three or
four chairs, such harbors invite
their clients to be seated in. A gauge
for measuring tho height of pris
oners and a weighing ma-hine
completed the list of accessories
to the " Heceptio i-ltooin." Pres
ently a keeper on tho outside thrust
his arm through the iron bars and, in
serting a huge key in the lock, opened
tho door. Then entered the sixteen
sinners in double file and ranged
themselves in a row before Keeper
Kennedy. " Your name? 'shouted that
official to the foremost offender. It
was given. Then followed in success
ion tho questions, " Your age?" " Na
tive corntry?" *• Religion?" •'Occupa
tion?" " Boon here before?" and if tho
answer were in tho affirmative, " How
mmy times?" •' Under what name or
names?" These questions being sat
isfactorily answered and the replies re
corded, tho prisoner was handed over
to an attendant who measured his
height and weighed him, the result of
these two operations, together with
the color of his hair, eyes and com
plexion, being quickly added to the
statement and spread before Keeper
Kennedy. Each man was then made
to strip and enter a bath 'and, under
the vigilant eyes of the keeper and his
satellit s/non * failed t<f escape a thor
ough washing. This cleansing
process completed, each prisoner
dressed himself in the suit
provided for him by the State which,
whatever may ho >aid of its utility,
cannot by any stretch of the imagin i
tion be considered aesthetic. The
clothes belonging to each prisoner
were then collected, neatly folded, made
into parcels and labeled with the
owner's name previous to being put
away. Unless a man were sentenced
•to a very short term and raised an
objection to it, he was next shaved,
after which he was considered to lie
duly prepared f< r the pr son life before
him. Deputy Warden Osborne rapidly
scanned the column headed " Occupa
tion," and assigned every man t > some
particular keeper's gang: some to
work in t! e quarry, some to tho black
smith's and some to the carpenter's
shop. After this all that roinaino Ito
be done was for Keeper Kennedy to
show the prisoners their cells and
exnlain tho manner of cleaning them.
Then they were inarched off, every
man to his gang.
The numb' r of prisoners admitted
daily varies greatly, but, approximate
ly, it may be said to average ten. At
present there aro 700 male and 150
female prisoners in the penitentiary,
but, although on one occasion -in
January, 1878--it accommodated the
large number of 1,181, it is much
overcrowded, and the system of
"doubling up," as putting two prison
ers in one cell is termed, is in
some cases fonnd to be necessary.
A Fortr-Four-Ton Statue.
Probably thy most colossal statue
yet ordered for the States has just
been finished in the plaster form by an
American sculptor at Florence, Mr.
Larkin G. Mead. Thero are but two
in America that can ever be compared
with it, Greenough's •* Wa hington"
and his group of "Civilization,"
which adorn the capitol in Washing
ton. Some idea of it may be obtained
by a short description. The subject is
the "Mississippi Hiver," a large re
cumbent statue, not unlike tho treat
ment to the "Nile" group in Home.
The figure is represent *d leaning
against a cluster of rocks whence
springs the source of the father of
waters, while as a support to the other
arm is a broken paddlewheel caught
in a snag, a not uncommon sight on
that mighty river. At tins base are
represented in bas-relief the various
objects characteristic of tho stream
during its long course, stern-wheeler
and side-wheeler, sugar-cane and
crocodile and its mineral wealth in the
representation of a lead mine, while
negroes are seen loading and unloading
bales of cotton and tobacco and the
sugar tane; crystals, too, are not for
gotten, while tho giant right foot
rests on a lo lgo of limestone, and in
the right hand stalks of that great prod
uct of the Mississippi valley, Indian
corn, are hold, one mature, the other
in tho shock. A wreath composed of
tobacco and cotton crowns the head of
the colossus, while a fishing net is
carelessly thrown across the base. The
plinth or pedestal is twelve feet in
length and the weight of tho marble
no less than forty-four tons. This is
to be presented to the c ty of New
York by Mr. ElliottF. Shepard, a New
York lawyer, a son-in-law of W. 11.
