A HUNTER OF SLAVES.
liebhr Pasha, Whoso Armies Devasted
From the P:< itadelphia Times.
Zebhr Pasha, "ho has just l**-n released
trom a three year’s imprisonment at Gibral
tar, has played a:i important part in
African polities during the last five nnd
t wenty years. When Gordon went to the
Soudan in 1874 as Governor General, he
found Zebhr living in royal state in Darfur
and devastating with his slave hunting
armies the whole of the Equatorial prov
inces. After several severe fights, in which
Zebhr showed generalship of no mean or
der. Gordon defeated ana made him n pris
oner and sent him in chains to Cairo. There
he lived for eight years a prisoner on pa
role. until his intrigues on behalf of tho
Malidi rendered it necessary for the British
government to arrest and deport him. The
first time I met Zebhr was iu October. 1882,
when Cairo was occupied by British troops,
and the newly-captured Arab! was a pris
oner in the citadel. Zebhr had taken no
open part iu Arabi's revolt, but had stayed
on in Cairo waiting, no doubt, to see what
turn events might take.
His palace was always the resort of any
Soudanese notables whom business or pleas
ure brought to Cairo. Here in the evening
one met envoys from Dongola, Darfur anil
the most distant provinces of the Nile.jptd
here it was that I first heard of the revolt
under the Mahdi, which two years later cost
England so much blood and treasure, and
Egypt the larger portion of her territory.
Zebhr himself is avert striking looking
man, about 5 feet 10 inches in height, but
looking taller owing to his splendily pro
portioned frame. He is very dark; in fact,
you would hardly take him for an Egyptian,
were it not for his finely-chiseled features,
which have all the characteristics of the
Nubians about them. He is about 50 years
of age, but looks younger. He dresses like
a sheik of the desert, and wears a bright
colored silk turban on his head.
On the first occasion of my visiting him
we had a long conversation about the Sou
dan and the slave trade, the latter a sore
subject with him, as he considers that Gor
don maligned him with regard to his asso
ciation with it.
“The slave trade,” he said, “can never be
put a stop to as- long as the religion of Ma
homed endures. Eastern life necessitates
the employment of slaves, and no lot is
happier than that of the slave of a good
I explained to him that domestic slavery
was not what Christians especially objected
to, though they disapproved or that, but
the cruel traffic in human llesn, whereby
people were torn from their homes, separat
ed front their kith and kin and sent into ex
ile in a foreign land. He tried hard to deny
that this traffic existed, but when I told him
of the number of slaves captured yearly by
our nten-of-war on the African coast, be at
tempted to argue that they were merely
prisoners of war, and that it would have
been impossible to leave them in the dis
tricts where they had been taken prisoners,
and that it was for their own best interests
to send them to new countries. At the
same time he emphatically denied that
he had ever made war simply to capture
“It is the nature of the wild tribes of the
Soudan,” he said, “to keep a perpetual
State of inter-tribal warfare, and only when
my people were attacked did I make re
Just then a bright-looking boy handed me
tome coffee and Zebhr said:
“You see that boy. He is from Shillook,
the only human being saved from a village
burnt by my men in revenge for attacks
tnade on my boats going up the Nile. Ask
him if he is happy. Why, if he were a
chief among his wretched people he would
hot be so well cared for as he is now.”
It was evident that we should never be
sble to agree on the slave question, so I
turned the conversation to sport, on which
Zebhr is a great authority. Most, if not
ill, of the big game of Africa have fallen
to his rifle, and he told me some wonderful
j-arns of his adventures with lions and ele
phants. He told me that his favorite
Method of hunting the latter was on horse
back and armed only with a sword. His
plan was to ride up alongside the elephant,
knd, rapidly dismounting, hamstring him
with a blow from the sword, and when the
huge beast was thus put hors du combat he
was dispatched with spears. It is necessary
to have several mounted men, one of whom
Ittracts the attention of the elephant while
the others creep up and hamstring him.
This method of hunting was reported on
Dv Sir Samuel Baker as common among the
llamram Arabs; but Zebhr is the only
Arab I have met who has told me he has
practiced it. He spoke in glowing terms of
(he abundance of animal life to be found in
She more distant parts of Darfur, which,
trom his account, must be a very paradise
lor sportsmen. But he, added:
“The Soudan will soon be the scene of
pore stirring events tluin hunting wild
And then he went on to talk of the
flabdi. As I had heard but little then of
uohammed Achmet I was much interest
td in what he told me, which was to the ef
fect that the tribes were fast rallying round
lim and that ere many moons were past tho
Soudan would be lost to Egypt.
“There is no one man between the Bahr
(l-Guzell and Dongola who can rally the
people to the standard in support of the
\licdive,” he said. “There was once a
Sultan in Darfur, but he is there no more."
This last was a delicate allusion to him
Very vividly did this conversation come
>ack to my memory when being in Gibral
tar last year I found myself once more in
he presenoe of Zebhr Pasha. Hearing that
le was a prisoner on the Rock, 1 applied to
Ihe Governor for a permit to visit him,
cinch was readily granted. Armed with
his I one morning presented myself at the
[ate leading to tho'ex-slave king's quarters,
i small house on the southeast corner of the
Hock had been assigned to him and I found
dm sitting on a divan in the veranda,
coking out over the blue waters of the
Mediterranean. He had changed a good
leal in the four years that had elapsed since
last saw him and it was evident that the
ife of forced inactivity was telling heavily
in him. We had a long talk on Soudanese
iffairs, of which he took a most pessimistic

A SURGEON’S LIFE.
A Page From the Experience of the
Father of Surgery in His Day.
From the Autobiography of the Late Dr. Gross.
I have always maintained that it is impos
sible for any man to be a great surgeon if
he is destitute, even in a considerable de
gree, of the finer feelings of our nature. I
have often lain awake for horn's the night
before an important operation, and suf
fered great mental distress for days after it
was over, until I was certain that my
patient was out of danger. I do not think
it is possible for a criminal to feel much
worse the night before his execution than a
surgeon when he knows that upon his skill
and attention must depend the fate of a
valuable citizen, husband, father, mother,
or child. Surgery under such circumstances
is a terrible taskmaster, feeding like a vul
ture upou a man’s vitals. It is surprising
that any surgeon in large practice should
ever attain to a respectable old age, so
great are the wear and tear of mind and
world has seen many a sad picture. I
will draw one of the surgeon. It is midday;
the sun is bright and beautiful; all nature is
redolent of joy; men and women crowd the
street, arrayed in their beet, and all, appar
ently, is peace and happiness within and
without. In a large house, almost over
hanging this street so full of life and gayety,
lies upon a couch an emaciated figure, once
one of the sweetest and loveliest of her sex,
a confiding and affectionate wife and the
adoixxi mother of numerous children, the
subject of a frightful disease of one of her
limbs, or, it may be, of her jaw, if not of a
still more imjiortant part of her body. In
an adjoining room is the surgeon, with his
assistants, spreading ont his instruments and
getting things in readiness for the impend
ing operation. He assigus to each his appro
priate place. One administers chloroform;
another take3 charge of the limb; one screws
down the tourniquet upon the principal
artery, and another holds himself in readi
ness to follow the knife with his sponge. The
flaps are soon formed, the bone severed, the
vessels tied, and the huge wound approxi
mated. The woman is pale and ghastly, tho
pulse hardly perceptible, the skin wet with
ejammy perspiration, the voice husky, the
sight indistinct. Someone whispers into
the ear of the busy surgeon: “The patient,
I fear, is dying.” Restoratives are admin
istei-ed, the pulse gradually rises, and after
a few hours of hard work and terrible
anxiety reaction occurs. The poor woman
was only faint from the joint influence of
the anspsthetic, shock, and loss of blood.
An assistant, a kind of sentinel, is placed as
a guard over her, with instructions to watch
her with the closest care, and to send word
the moment the slightest change for the
worse is seen.
The surgeon goes about his business, visits
other patients on the way, and at length,
long after the usual hour, he sits down,
worried and exhausted, to his cold and
comfortless meal, with a mouth al
most as dry and a voice as husky
as his patient’s. He eats mechanically,
exchanges hardly a word with any member
of his family, and sullenly retires to his
study to prescribe for his patients—never,
during all this time, forgetting tho poor
mutilated object he left a few hours ago.
Ho is about to lie down to get a moment’s
repose after the severe toil of the day, when
suddenly he hears a loud ringing of the bell,
and a servant, breathless with excitement,
begs his immediate presence at the sick
chamber with the exclamation, “They think
Mrs. —— is dying.” He hurries to the
scene with rapid pace and anxious feeling.
The stump is of a crimson color, and the
patient lies in a profound swoon. An artery
has suddenly given way, the exhaustion is
extreme, cordials and stimulants are at once
brought into requisition, the dressings are
removed, and the recusant vessel is secured.
The vital current ebbs and flows, reaction
is still more tardy than before, and it is not
until a late hour of the night that the sur
geon, literally worn out in mind and body,
retires to his liome in search of repose. Does
he sleep? He tries, but he cannot close his
eyes. His mind is with his patient; he hears
every footstep upon the pavement under his
window, and is in momentary expectation
of the ringing of the night bell. He is dis
turbed by the wildest fancies, he sees the
most terrific objects, and, as he rises early
in the morning to hasten to his patients
chamber, he foals that he has been cheated
of the rest of which he stood so much in
need. Is this picture overdrawn I I have
sat for it a thousand times, and there is not
an educated, conscientious surgeon that will
not certify to its accuracy.
A SEA GULL S STRATAGEM.
Trying to Break a Mussel on the Head
of an Ornithologist.
From the San Francisco Examiner.
“I had a very singular experience last
Sunday,” said a tradesman, whose shop in
Oakland is adorned by the sign, “Ornitho
logical Rarities,” but who, on a pinch, would
sell a dog or a rabbit. “I was walkiug on
the beach, not very far from the Cliff House,
and I had just noticed that an unusually
large number of sea gulls were flying over
the sands, when a hard substance struck me
violently upon the head and staggerod me.
Luckily my hat was very thick and
I am blessed with a tolerably solid skull.
So I soon recovered myself, and I was look
ing about to ascertain what bail ifit me,
when I was greatly startled by a weird and
ghostly fluttering of wings a foot above me.
A groat gray gull had narrowly escaped
alighting upon my shoulders. He just suc
ceeded in checking his impetuous descent as
his feet almost touched me. With a queer
kind of half-frightened cry he was again
into the air. But what has brought hitn so
close to mei I soon found out. Lying on
the sand was the thing that had given me
blow upon the head. It was a large block
mussel, and the sea gull had dropped it from
a dizzy height upon my unoffending scalp.
I have studied the habits of those birds
pretty carefully, and I know very well why
he had done it. He was trying to get at his
dinner, and as the shell of the mussel was
still unbroken and I wished to see him try
again I walked a couple of hundred yard
away and turned to watch his movements.
Seeing that the coast was clear, he quickly
flew lack to tho place where tho mussel had
fallen, seized it in his beak, and, again ris
ing high into the air, he let it drop. He
foHowid it closely as it fell, keeping almost
beside It during the greater part or the de
scent, and only moderating his downward
rush when he was in danger of dashing him
self upon the beach. The mussel struck the
sand, but the shell was still unbroken, and,
indeed, it was verv evident to me that tho
soft, ground that received it wonld never
lay it open. Then I flung the mussel to a
distance, and the gull, seeming to take this
as a hint that rav head was not a chopping
block, seized his troublesome delicacy and
flew away. I saw him turn a little inland,
rise once more to a great height, dart, swift
ly down, and then wing his way out to sea.
I found that many stones lay at the place of
his last descent; so. doubtless, his persever
ance was at length rewurded, anil he had
gone off to some lonely rock to dine. ’

THE MORNING NEWS; FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1887.
Adventure of a Maine Knight Templar
With Bats in His Bedroom in a Ver
From the Lewiston < Me.) Journal.
Sir Knight Greeuleaf had the queerest
adventure. He told it himself along about
8 o'clock Wednesday evening on the broad
piazza, when the band was playing.
“I went to bed about 11 o'clock Tuesday
evening,” said ha
“Just so,” echoes Mi's. Greenleaf, who
subscribes to tho story.
“The night was pretty warm and the
transom was up in the room, with the light
of the hall shining through. 1 was half
asleep, when something came in at the win
dow like a black cat out of a skunk trap.
The thing bumped up against the wall and
slammed against the door and whizzed over
the lied. It darted so close to the bed that
I thought it was going to hit me, but it
didn’t. I never did like to sleep with over
two in a room, so I got up and struck a
match. It was a bat. A big, live, flutter
ing bat, dazed by the light. My wife
screamed a little—just a little, you know—
and I drew my sword and started for him.
He came at me and I stood on guard and
lunged at him. I didn't, have my chapeau
and regimentals on—not exactly—because I
wasn’t expecting company, hut I wished I
had Just donned the chapeau to complete
the picture, for it must have lieen a study
for an artist. Thunderation! how I chased
him. He was earlier than a New Jersey
mosquito, and my fluttering garments
caught the breezes. My sword gleamed in
the gaslight, but it didn’t seem to gleam in
the immediate vicinity of the bat. That
bat -was pluekier than Gapt. Michael Kelly,
of the Boston base hall club, but I cornered
him, and laid him low, and put him to rest
beneath the corner of my regalia trunk,
and was just cooling off Tor another nap
when in came another. This one was a
regular dandy. Ho had n sharp noso and
was dressed in a full suit of black. He
came sauntering in, took a good look around,
and went for the bed.
“Mv wife screamed and the bat lit on the
coverlet. I made for him, and he ran just
liko a mouse along the bed and dived down
under the clothes. In less than a jiffy he
had tho bed to himself, and quicker than
Jack Robinson in came another bat at the
open window, and things were lively—with
the bat under the trunk cover, squealing
and flapping his wings. Says I, ‘This is
getting Interesting. This room ain’t big
enough for five. It’s only a seven-by-nine,
and my wife and I want it,’ and 1 drew the
trusty sword and wont into battle. I got
the first wound. The bat was under the
bed clothes, and I made for him. He bit
me. See there! (showing his forefinger with
a plainly marked bruise). Well, sir, he bit
me right through the forefinger, and I
squealed like a good one; but I got him. I
got him tight and flung him under the
trunk cover and made for the other. I won’t
weary you with the details of the chase, but
it was exciting. I chased bat No. 8 over
the bed, over the chairs, up the ceiling, into
the cupboard, up in the corners and finally
I laid him low, dead as a herring in the cor
ner of the chimney, and oddest another to
the family under the trunk cover.
“I stood on guard for ten minutes waiting
for the rest of the surprise party, but he
was the last, and about 10 o’clock I went to
sleep. There’s the bat,” concluded Mr.
Greenleaf, pointing to the dead body of a
bat lying on the gravel walk beneath the
electric light. And Mrs. Greenleaf cor
roborated the story in its details.
FORTUNES FOR PRINTERS.
Flush Days for Followers of the Art
Preservative in Colorado.
A Denver letter to the New York Mail
and Express gives some interesting remi
niscences of the old days in that section,
and the ups and downs of frontier life.
There was a great rush for job printing and
prices were steep. They got $lO per one
thousand cards, tter heads, envelopes, and
so on, and as sek was scarce and they
wanted to accommodate everybody, they
gave only two hundred or three hundred
cards or letter heads, as the case might be,
to the thousand. They were soon taking in
between 3500 and S6OO a day for job work,
and in exciting times they had to keep the
press running as late as 12 o’clock at night
to supply the demand for papers. An
amusing story is told by Col. Arkins, which
illustrates the go-as-you-please manner in
which they charged for work.
One evening as the men were washing up
to go home a stranger dropped in and said
he wanted a job of printing done, and he
wanted it that night. Col. Arkins told him
it would be impossible to let him have it,
but he insisted that he must have it, and
expressed a willingness to pay liberally. He
explained wiiat he wanted—ten cards, the
size of playing cards, nine with the num
bers on them, from 1 to 9, and then a single
one with oon it. The job was taken, and
they were to send the cards and bill to Tom
Kemp’s saloon and the gambling hall,
where the stranger would lie waiting for
them at 9 o’clock. They took a planer and
mallet and printed the cards in five minutes.
Then Arkins, Bumel and Davis went to
“What’ll we tax him for that job?” Davis
“How will $lO do?” inquired Burnell, “or
would he think it too much!”
“Ten nothings!” said Arkins. ‘‘Why,
charge something for our trouble—make out
a bill for *25.”
Davis and Burnell were afraid, but the
bill was made out, and Arkins agreed to
collect it. He went to Tom Kemp's saloon
at 9 o’clock and the stranger was there.
“Have you got ’em?” he asked, coming
close to Arkin and whispering in his ear.
“Yes,” was the whispered answer.
“Where are they?”
A thin package changed hands, and the
gambler put them into his pocket.
The money was counted out and Arkins
receipted the bill and turned to go, when the
stranger caught his arm and said;
“Look a-yere, cap’n; I’m a thief—l’m a
f ambler: that’s they way I make my livin’;
ut, say, isn’t this a lectio high ?”
