Dia do Lobinho
(Wolf Cubs). When Lord Baden-Powell founded Scouting, he could never have foreseen that many young children would enlist scouting.

Tenho pena e não respondo
Tenho pena e não respondo.
Mas não tenho culpa enfim
De que em mim não correspondo
Ao outro que amaste em mim.
Cada um é muita gente.
Para mim sou quem me penso,
Para outros — cada um sente
O que julga, e é um erro imenso.
Ah, deixem-me sossegar.
Não me sonhem nem me outrem.
Se eu não me quero encontrar,
Quererei que outros me encontrem?

However… His violent response against the rebels in Canudos, which ended in a ruthless massacre was heavily criticized. Fore several months, when Prudente underwent a surgery, he had to hand over his presidential powers to his vice-president Manuel Vitorino Pereira.

Discovery of the São Francisco River.
The world famous navigator Amérigo Vespucci had arrived at the estuary of a thus far unknown river. Because he had arrived there on 4 October, feast day of St. Francis, he baptized the river as Rio São Francisco. The river, also known with the historical name Opará, has its origin in Minas Gerais, in Serra da Canastra, and ends in the Atlantic Ocean, between the states of Alagoas and Sergipe. Its basin counts no less than 634 square kilometers (twice the size of Poland!) and measures 2830 km, a bit shorter than the Donau River (2860 km).
