"I hod on excellent opportunity to study
tho habits of tho shark while at Mauritius,"
said CoL Pike, because I then made a com
plete collection of the fish of the Indian
ocean. When tho Duke of Edinburgh came
to I'ort Louis on one of his cruises he ex
pressed a desire to see a specimen of a real
man eating hark, and I volunteered ono day
to capture one. Accordingly I took my boat
and a Malay crew and set out. I was par
ticular to take a lnt without any keel, be
cause sharks will dart under a beat and tear
off a keel without half trying. Besides lnes,

out our lines baited with chunks of pork.
The ocean was perfectly calm, and after
waiting some time I took a pull at ono of th
lines and found that it was fastened to some
thing. Then there was a fierce jerk from

almost simultaneously the other lines were
made taut, and I could see wo were to have

became fierce and was thrashing and slash

I seized my whalemun'd spade and stood erect
in the bow of the boat. He was coming
direct for us with his mouth wide open.

GREEDY FLESH EATERS.
All the meat that was brought to Port
Louis came in vessels and the cattle were
lowered into the water and made to swim
ashore. It was not on uncommon thing for
tbe sharks t-3 seize a live animal and make
away with it In order to study the habits
of this wonderful fish more thoroughly, I
once took a dead bullock and anchored it in
the parts most frequented by them, I then
waited to see ho they would pull bin to
pieces. Tbey would go off some distance
and then swim swiftly toward the bullock
tearing great circular pieces out of the
haunches. In one hour thero was uot a sin.
pie vestige of the bullock left. So intent
were they upon their prey that they allowed
zne to put a noose around their tails and drag
them on tbe reef, where we killed them.
Three specicjetts captured in this way were
eent to the SmUksoni-W Institution at Wash
ington. Once there were two men off the coast of
Mauritius in a pirogue, or what we would
call a dugout. A ravenous shark seemed
determined to have them, and finally suc
ceeded in turning the boat over. The mca
drew their clasp knives and tried to defend
themselves, but one of them was swallowed
by tho fish without an apparent effort, and,
strange to say, he did not then seem to bo
satisfied. The people on the shore who had
witnessed this tragic event determined to
capture the monster, and, accordingly, they
killed a kid and fastened it to a hook. Tor a
time the shark swam around it, apparently
suspecting something, but finally swallowed it
and tbe delighted natives hauled him ashore.
The fish was opened and I saw the body of
tho man, which was taken out, and have the
knife which he held in his hand.
Masters of whaling vessels have told mo
that they have known sharks to jump out of
the water and take pieces of meat which
were suspended from the ship's side. The
ship Ellen Wallace was anchored in tho har
bor of Port Louis at one time and a sailor
asked permission of tho captain to go osboro.
lie was refused and accordingly jumped
overboard, determined to swim ashore. IIo

IN THE SHAMEFACED LAND.
Coreans the Rliyent Nation on Karth Se
clusion of the Fair Sex.
The Cnreans are the shyest nation on the
face of tho earth. Until quite lately they
have attained ns much as possible from all
intercourse with strangers, holding studiously
aloof not only from Europeans who have
sought their hospitality, but also from con
tact with the Chinese and Japanese. Within
the last few years, however, their reserve bos
shown signs of thuwing, and wo are at last
able to form some opinion as to the reason of
their shyness, and to judge whether a closer
acquaintance will reveal anything worth
knowing. As to the first point, this shyness
seems constitutional. Thero is a limit to it;
for, like mt bhy people, the Coreons ore
A Dutch craft was wrecked near tho coast
of Corea in tho latter half of the Seventeenth
century, and the sailors, whose narrative may
Ijo read in several Ijooksof old travel, found
themselves the objoctof much inquisitive ob
servation. Even tho women and children
were eager to see tbe outlandish navigators;
more especially as the Dutchmen wero re
puted to bo of a monstrous race who, when
they drank, were obliged to twist their long
noses round their ears. No such report her
alded the journey which Mr. Carles made
into the interior, yet he was received with
polite attention and interest everywhere.
'Tho moro I have seen," ho says, "of the
Coreans, the more fully have I appreciated
their politeness toward their gueits and the
digm'ty of their behavior." Hut ho saw next
to nothing of the women of tho country, by
whom be was carefully avoided. Even somo
little girls whom he found swinging in afield
fled at his first approach. His inability to
tell us about the women of Corea is especi
ally to be regretted ou account of the strange
position they bold.
The seclusion of women In this land of the
shamefaced is carried to the utmost limit.
Ladies out of doors wear a green mantle
which covers tho whole countenance except
the eyes. Nor do they willingly let even
their eyes be seen. "It seemed odd," says
Mr. Carles, "that each woman wo mot should
have arrived at that moment at her home;
but, as wo learned later on, women have a
right of entree everywhere, and to avoid us
they turned into the nearest houso at hand."
Utner travelers recount that the women ore
taught to shun tho opposito sex from their
earliest girlhood. They are even exhorted
to talk as little as may be to their own
husbands. What is still more extraordinary
is the innate modesty of the men. This senti
ment impels them to work in jacket and
trouser3 in the hottest weather; while the
richer classes use a kind of bamboo frame
work to keep the clothes, otherwise unbear
able, from contact with tho 6kin. When an
Italian prince visited Corea, a few years ago,
officials wero sent to his ship to protest against
tho indecency of tho Italian sailors, which
for tome days had prevented tho villagers
from leaving their houses. Tho sailors had

Cultivating "Uneonuioni Grace."
A row Boston cult that is just making its
appearance nere, is what is called a "tight
class," which has no reference whatever to
the effects of alcohol. These classes aro

ponent of the Delsarte theory in America,
ami who has been through a course of train-
ins under Mile. Delsarte, in Paris. The
theory is that as the whole body Is but an in
strument of the mind, every part and mem
ber needs to be trained to tho most perfect
freedom. Not one person in a hundred can
make a gesture witn tue unconscious grace
of a child or an animal, for "tho simple
reason that an arbitrary volition is so im
pacted in each muscle that one controls every
sinew artificially without knowing it." Tho
idea of these "tight classes" is to break up
this artificial control, and they derive tho
name from tho fact that they wear tights
while practicing, which is done under tho
eye of tho young female exponent of the art.
Miss btebouis has trained hospital nurses
who declare that they bavo gained such sup
pleness of movement and control of their

Sea Water a Pest Carrier.
Wefind in The New York Medical Journ-J
that Dr. J. J. Kinyoun, assistant surgeon in
tho marine hospital service, who has done
much of the bacteriological work that has
proved so valuable in the detection of Asiatic
cholera in obscure stages, both in the late im
portations at New York and for future cases,
has made another important demonstration
with respect to the persistence of bacterial
life in the sea water of the bay, contaminated
fcy the sewage of a population of 3,000,000.
The existing contaminations developed by
the end of five days colonies of bacteria rang
ing from 4,500 to 11,700 micro organisms per
cubic centimeter of water from various
points in tho bay. Specimens of sea water,
thoroughly sterilized and inoculated with
pure cultivations of the spirilla pf Asiatic
cholera, proved that for sixty-nino days the
spirilla could be derived from that medium
and their characteristic growth produced by
cultivation. Ihcy were round to be not
only kept alive, but greatly increased in.

charged into our tide or sea water is by no
means disposed of, but remains a Teal men

miles oi cnicugo. A passenger tram was
running at full speed across a rather level
piece of country. The train was probably
making sixty miles an hour when, without
any premonition whatever, all four of tho
driving wheels suddenly left the engine and
went spinning off across the fences into the
adjoining fields. Why they did it nobody
knows to the present day; but they did it,
and the strangest part of it all is that nobody
was hurt, and but little damage was done to
tho road or the train. Of course the train,
was brought to a rather sudden standstill.
Being left without its main support, tho en
gine dropped down until tbe firebox scraped
along on the ties and rails for a short dis
tance, but it was so well held up by tho pilot
wheels, and tho strong couplings of the
tender that it did no serious damage, and not
a wheel, except those that went spinning off
across the fields, like so many school boys1
hoops, left tho tracks. Of course the train
was delayed until word could be sent to tho
nearest station and another ongino secured,
but that was the only inconvenience that

A WRECKED LOCOMOTIVE.
Something over a year ago a passenger
train on the Northwestern road was pulling
up toward a station in a northern Wisconsin
town. The baggageman and one of tho other
trainmen were standing in the door of the
baggage car looking out, as such men often
do, at a village as they pass through it. Just
before they reached the station they wero
surprised to see alongside of tho track a
wrecked locomotive. It had been going in
the same direction they were going, and tbey
saw at once the wreck had been very recent.
It was not, however, until they pulled up at
tho station that they discovered the engine
was the ono that had been pulling their own
train. It seems it had exploded, jumped tho
track and fallen in tho ditch a complete
week, without disturbing the remainder of
the train, and it all happened so silently that,
while they wero only the second car from
the engine, they had not heard the explosion
or tha crash it made whea it left tho trackj
A very strango accident occurred on the
Che3aioako and Ohio road. Tho train was
running down grade at a rapid rate of speed
in the West Virginia coal district, when it
plunged into a mass of soft earth and rocks
that had fallen down tho mountain side on
to the track. Tho concussion, while not so
abrupt, was sufficient to throw the locomo
tive from the rail3, and it rolled over into
the river. The rebound snapped tho pin con
necting the teudor and tho baggage car, and
tho former shot forward, jumped clear over
the debris, landed safely ou the rails, and was
found at tho foot of the grade, three miles
from the wrecked engine. The automatic
brakes hold tho remainder of the train, not
a wheel of which loft tho track. Another
engine was telegrapnea ior. and the train
went into Louisville on time. None of the
passengers was any the wiser for their mirac

down with tho engine, and both swam ashoro.

President Strong, of the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe railroad, had a olose call ouco
on tho Atlantic and Pacific railroad. lie
was en route to San Francisco and was trav
eling in a private car. A small single span
deck bridge had burned outdaring the night,
leaving tho rails suspended. They were
pinioned at either end by the ordinary bolts
and splice bars, and the heat had warped
them until they resembled the phonetic
alphabet in shape. The train was running
in tho neighborhood of a mile a minute when
it struck the warped roils, and heaven only
knows what held it up, but they passed over
all right, with only a slight damage to the
car. Probably the terrific rate of speed at
which the train was flying saved the lives of
all on board.
TWO NARROW ESCAPES.
Two very narrow escapes from smash up
havo recently happened to the limited, trains
running east Xrom Uhicnga, and both oa
curred not very long ago. The first happened
within the first 100 miles out from this city
to the. train going east, It was to meet a
freight at a long sidingpulj on a prairie. mid
.way between stations. The freight ran into
the siding in ample time to be out of the war
of the flyirife "limited," and one of the brake
men got off and went forward to the switch
to be ready to open it as soon as the train
had gone by. lie was very tired and sleepy
from some cause, and sat down on tho
switch beam, and almost immediately feel
asleep, lie was almost as quickly awak-r
ened by the thundering of the approaching
train. Why he did it be does not know
to this day, but in his -confusion ho
reached for the switch and turned it.
Both engineers had their eyes fixed on the
switch, as their custom is, and both in an in-r
stant saw the danger that threatened them.
Tho one on the flying "limited" quickly re
versed his engine and set his brakes, while
the one on the freight turned on a full head
of steam to force his train backward. The
brakeman also saw the danger as quickly as
they did, but not quickly enough to correct
his terrible mistake, and be had only time to
jump to one side, to fall rather than
scramble out of the way, when the passenger
passed the switch and turned into the siding
full on the freight. When the switchman
recovered ho found that the two engines had
gone together, but with force enough to only
slightly damage their pilots. One of the en
gineers had jumped from his train after
doing ell be could to save it, and was slightly
injured, but was able to take his position in
tho cab and proceed on his journey. The
passengers probably do not know to this day
why tbe train was stopped so suddenly.
The other narrow escape also occurred on
one of the eastern roads, and not much fur
ther away from Chicago. It happened one
foggy night when the fog was so thick that
engineers could scarcely see that their en
gines carried headlights. The fast train
from the east was ordered to make its best
time to a certain station, where it would
meet another train from the west, which was
to be on tho side track. The western train
was given orders to go to another side track,
some six miles further east, and pull in in
time to be out of the way of the westbound
train. It made good time, reached the sid
ing and pulled in on it, and much to the sur
prise of the trainmen, especially the rear
brakeman, who was standing on the rear
platform, the other train dashed by jusl in
time to grazo the corner of the last car.

It has been found, in experiments on the

an hour is sufficient to destroy active bacilli
of all ordinary infectious diseases; but, if
spores are to be attacked, a heat of 245 dogs,
for an hour or of 220 degs. for four hours
will bo required. The complete penetration
of an object by steam heat for more than five
minutes is sufficient for its full disinfection ;
