UR cover represents a Zulu warrior. The Zulus are the
most interesting of all the Kaffirs. They are strong and
well built, and many of them are over six feet in height.
Their hair is thick and woolly, their foreheads are high, their eyes
are bright, and they carry themselves with great dignity. Usually
they clothe themselves in ox-hides, leopard-skins, and blankets,
but their cup of joy is full if they can dress up in the old red
coat of a soldier. They are a very war-like people. Under their
chief, Cetewayo, they fought against the British, who were well
armed and well trained, yet could not conquer them for quite a
long time. Amongst those who were killed in this Zulu War
was the Prince Imperial, son of
Napoleon the Third. At the time
Sof his death he was serving as an officer
in the British
army. Many of the
Zulus still live
in tribes, and have
villages of bee-
Shive-s haped
houses. They are
now quite peace- *
able, and do most
of the heavy work
in the mines and /6
on the farms.

f HINA contains about one-third of all the
People in the world. They are Mongolians,
# and like to call their country the "Flowery
Land." If we were to pass through a Chinese city
we would see every moment something strange.
Some of the women hobble about like children just
learning to walk. When they are infants their feet
are tightly bandaged to keep them from growing and
Sso they have nothing but stumps for feet. Instead of
eating with knives and forks, the Chinese use two
little rounded sticks called "chop-sticks;" these are
usually made of wood or ivory and are about ten
inches long.
For want of room on land millions of Chinese
are compelled to live on boats moored in the rivers
and harbors. These boats are arranged like houses
on a street.
Cups and saucers are often called "chinaware" because the first used
in Europe were made in China. Silk, cotton goods and porcelain are their
chief manufactures, and nearly everything is made by hand. Most of the
Chinese are far s and they raise immense quantities of tea, cotton, sugar
and rice. They'lpply the wjld with most of its tea.
About two thousyld yef ago the Chinese built a great wall which
partly surrounds this country; in some places it is thirty feet high and so
broad that six men on horseback -an ride abreast on the top of it.

AMERICAN Indians. When Europeans first settled in North
America the noble redskin" was the monarch of all
he surveyed. Now he is fast disappearing. He is tall,
straight, lithe in body, with skin of a dusky copper color, jet-black
eyes, and straight black hair. He daubs and streaks
his face and body with
paint, and wears a
S/feather head-dress, a coat
Sof deerskin embroidered
S with beads and quills,
and has "mocassins" on
his feet. He lives in a
wigwam" with his
S I. "squaw," who carries
her "papoose" in a queer bark cradle.
He lives by hunting and fishing,
and in hi -aceful birch-bark canoe
he skims over the lakes and rivers
at a great rate.

HE Lapps are a
mi small, hardy
people, who live in
the extreme north of
Europe. Their land
is barren and dreary,
Ibut they love it very
dearly for all that.
Very little will grow,
so the Lapp depends
upon his reindeer, just as the Arab depends on his
camels. The reindeer not only gives him food,
drink, shelter, and
clothing, but drags ,, ....,.,1
his boat-shaped i !1
sledge from place ej. /& -
to place. The
Lapps live in tents
made of skins or .''
coarse cloth. Dogs, men, women, and children huddle
together for warmth; and when a fire is lighted you
may guess how hot and stuffy the tent becomes. The
"fishing Lapps" live near
the Frozen Ocean. They
are splendid fishermen,
and even the boys can
---- manage a canoe very well.

S HHE word "Mongol" means
"brave," and in ancient times
the Mongols were the fiercest
and most warlike race in the whole
of Asia. Much of their country con-
sists of a vast "sea of sand;" other
parts of it are'bare and treeless, but
I in the north-west there are some
fertile valleys. Many of the Mon-
gols are rich in flocks and herds, and these they drive
from feeding-ground to feeding-ground like the Arabs.
Of course they live in tents, which are their only pro-
tection against the sandstorms of summer and the fierce
snowstorms of winter.
They almost live on horse-back or camel-back,
so that their legs are short and bent. They have
flat, broad faces,
Sdumpy noses, and
eyes set at a slant.
The women do all
the buying and
selling and much
of the work, while
the men enjoy them-
selves in hunting
Sand hawking.
Some of the best fal-
cons in the world are
to be seen amongst
the Mongols.

/E TGYPT is the land of the pyra-
I N mids. The country would be
nothing but a desert were it not for
the river Nile, which makes a strip
of it green and fertile. Egypt is full
J. of ruins of pyramids, temples, and
tombs, which were built in days long
before the time when the Israelites
were bondmen in the land. The
great pyramid is not far from Cairo,
the capital of the country. It was built five thousand
years ago. It is higher than the highest spire in
Europe, and there are seven million tons of stone in it.
It took one hundred thousand men thirty years to build
it. Beside it is a huge man-headed lion called the
Sphinx. Formerly the Egyptians were badly treated by
their rulers, who robbed them right and left. Now the
British rule the country, and their lot is a much happier
one. At one time they had to be driven.with whips
to fight. Now the "Gippies" are capital soldiers, and a
Sfew years ago
they fought
very bravely
against the
