    Excerpt from The Nation, Vol. 69: A Weekly Journal Devoted to Politics, Literature, Science and Art; From July 1, 1899, to December 31, 1899

    Livingstonia Mission school at Bandawe and in the branches within the radius of twenty miles the daily attendance was each child paying six cents for a session of three months. This, it is found, secures a regu lar attendance, owing to a feeling, not alto gether extinct among ourselves, of 'having our money's worth,' and consequently it gives the teachers a much greater hold over the pupils than if the teaching were given gratis. The most interesting part also of Mr. L. A. Wallace's narrative of his explora tions in this same region is that in which he describes the customs, superstitions, indus tries, and amusements of the natives who ac companied him on his expeditions. The set phrases of some of their longer songs and stories, he discovered, were not fully under stood by the people. And he suggesm that they may be the remains of an archaic lan guage handed down orally through. Many generations. A detailed account is given of Lake Rukwa, which he was the first Euro pean to explore thoroughly, and also of Lake Mweru and of the extraordinary ¿uctuation of the water in all this region. The great Mweru marsh, a noted resort for elephants, has recently been proclaimed a preserve by order of the British South Africa Company.
