one of the most interesting results of the
great wave of Krakatuu.
There wan just one man nniid all that
mid Hceno of death ami devastation who
was uot overwhelmed in tho common
ruin, lie esciijieil whilo4(),iMiU perished.
Ha was the lighthouse keeper, who lived
alone on an isolated rock in the strait.
It was broad daylight when Krakatuu
burst asunder, but in a few moments
the heavens were so densely shrouded by
dost, mud and smoke that the darkness
of midnight covered all the channel.
The guardian of the lighthouse was in
the lantern I ill) feet above the sea level.
Hero he remained safe and sound in the
midst of the terrible commotion.
lie fult the trembling of the light
house, but it wits so dark that ho could
not see the threatened danger. lie did
uot know that a tremendous wave hud
almost overwhelmed the lighthouse,
and that its crest had nearly touched
the buse of the lantern. Ilo did not hear
It because ho was deafened by the awful
detonation of Krakatuu.
In a few moments the wave, over a
hundred foet in height, had swept along
a coast line of a hundred miles on both
sides of the channel.
Scores of opulous villages were buried
deep beneath the avalunche of water.
Great groves of cocoanut palms were
leveled to the ground. Promontories
were carried away. New bays were dug
out of the yielding littoral Every work
of human hands except that lighthouse
was destroyed, and 40,000 persons per
ished in the deluge that mounted from
the sea or beneath the rain of mud thut
tiilod the heavens.
A little sidewheel steam boat was borne
on the top of thut wave through forest
and jungle, over two miles into the coun
try, and was left as the wave rocoded.
it will be remembered that for weeks
before the tinal cataclysm at Krakatuu,
the volcano was iu a state of eruption.
Pleasure parties were made up at Jitv
tuvia to visit the volcano. Not a few
people landed on the islund, little dream
ing that in the twinkling of an eyo two
thirds of it was to be blown into tho air
as though Bhot from a gun. They wished
to get as near as they thought they might
safely venture to tho growling, steaming
This little steamboat, on the day bo
fore the explosion, curried one of these
parties to the island. There were only
twenty on board besides tho crew. They
(pout n couplo of hours around the is
land and then steamed np tho deep and
narrow Bay of Lampong, and it is sup
posed they anchored for tho night iu
front of tho big town of Telokh-Betong,
which was ono of tho largest settlements
on the south coast of Sumatra.
Tho ill fated pleasure party was never
heard f again. It is supposed that the
boat was turned over and over liko an
eggshell iu tho surf. It had every ap
peal auee of such rough usage when it
Was found some months later. The ma
chinery and furniture were badly broken
and were strewn about in the greatest
conf usiou. But tho vessel held toget her,
and was finally set down iu good shape,
erect on her keel.
Only two bodies were found iu the
vessel They vrro, of course, below
deck. As it was inoruing when she was
picked up by the wavo it is supposed
that nearly everybody was on shore.
Not a vestige remains of tho villages
that lined tho water edge. But the hulk
Of this little boat still stands, battered
and broken, though as erect as when
llie plowed tho channel, and she is tho
moBt curious and interesting relic of the
greatest volcanic eruption of modern
times. New York Sun.
Tha Venom of Snakr.
As to tho venom of serpents, no dis
tinct chemical principle has as yet been
detected in it, though such there must
be, seeing that tho effect of tho saliva of
different poisonous snakes is different
the blood coagulating after a fatal cobra
bite, though not after that of a rattle
snake or a viper. It bus also been ascer
tained that if tho blood of a poisoned
animal be injected into a healthy one
the latter will be poisoned in tho sanio
way as If it had itself been bitten, al
though its flesh may be eaten with im
punity. It is a mistake, however, to suppose
that a snake's poison can havo no effect
unless actually mixed with tho blwxl.
It will act after being absorbed through
such delicate skin na that which lins
our lips, though its action when thus
received is less powerful Quarterly

Oenerul Msrliot tells, in his ".Mem

him from being killed by Austrian

regiment of Austrian lancers. As the
French retreated at a gallop tliey came
to where .Murhut was standing, his
horse having been killed. Only a few
hundred feet intervened between the
lancers and the cuirassiers, and if Alar

been killed.
Two ununited soldiers gave him their

How the Map of Peking Wa Made.
IIow a military map of Peking was se
cretly made is told by General Sir Robert
Biddulpn. During the China war of
1800, in which Sir Robert was engaged,
our army was greatly embarrassed by
the absenco of any map of the city. But
it happened that the Russian legation
had. only a few months before, con
trived to make a map in spito of tho
jealous watchfulness of the Chinese
They had sent an officer, in a small
covered cart, such as they use to carry
their women about, completely covered
in. An indicator was attached to the
wheel. Ilo drove for a certain distance
to a certain crossroad, for example, and
"took a shot" with his instrument; then
down tho next rond, and in that wa.,
made a complete plan of Peking, with all
its streets and roads, both in the Tartar
city and in the Chinese city. General
Ignatielf , who produced the map, offered
its uso to tho English. Thero wero no
photographers then attached to the
army; but an Italian photographer, who
had followed tho army for his own pri
vate purposes, being set to work, pro
duced a number of copies, which provod
extremely serviceable. London News.
Fnlth of Italian Fialiertnnn.
Tho blind faith of tho Italian fisher
men in tho eflicacv of holv relics is iia-
thetic. Many of them keep themselves
lu a state of utter impoverishment in
providing necessary amulets and charms.
Not only i:i tho fisherman's person cov
ered with these, but his boat must also
possess all possible saving power through
these religious aimliances. Should some
great storm ariso and genuine danger
come, ono by ono these objects aro cast
upon tho waves with a faith that is posi
tively sublime. Meanwhilo his wife
ashore, possessed of tho same implicit
and pious confidence, gives her most
precious relics to tho sea that her hus
band may come safe to land. And I have
no doubt that when fatal disaster conies,
as it always does, this man sinks into
tho silence beneath tho tempest with his
lust spark of vital consciousness an un
diinined flame of trust und faith. Ex

A strange story of supersitition is re
ported Hungary. Sev
eral bodies of men had been found thero
with their heads cut off. An investiga
tion was made by tho police, and it
turned out that those mutilations had in
every instance been committed by young
men who were betrothed to tho widows
of the decapitated persons. Tho hus
bands had died a natural death, and
their widows believed that in case they
married a second time their first hus
bands would reappear and destroy their
wedded liappiuess. Hence they had per
suaded their new bridegrooms to decap
itate their deceased partners. Pall Mall
