A Strange Mark.
James Eothennel, who lives in Fayette
county, thi3 state, has. a strange birth
mark which makes him an object of su
perstitious regard among his neighbors.
According to a correspondent of The
Pittsburg l'ost on tho baok of Kothermel's
head, just below and a Little to tho right
of tho base of the brain, is a small ex
crescence, bluish in color and crescent
shaped. Tho moment tho moon begins
to turn tho first quarter of her polo the
mark begins to undergo a startling
change. Its bluish color turns to a bril
liant red, and tho flesh below it and ex
tending diagonally across his neck to the
left 6lioulder begins to swell. As the
moon grows older the birth mark gets
redder and redder, and the flesh swells
more and more, until, when h& moon
has reached its "full," the crescent
shaped mark is of a fiery scarlet, and the
flesh extending from the mark to the left
shoulder has swollen into a horn like
roll, two or three inches in thickness at
tho largest point, and gradually tapering
to a point near the Jef t shoulder.
As the moon gradually begins to wane,
in like manner the scarlet of the crescent
shaped mark becomes less fiery, tho horn
like roll across ho iick to. decrease in
size, until when the moon is dark again
there is nothing to be seen bt;t the small
bluidi crescent shaped mark. For over
twenty-eight years these changes have
followed monthly with the moon's
phases; and so marked are they and so
regular that Rothermpl can tell by sim
ply placing his hand on tho back of his
neck exactly what stage tho moon is in.
More Mexican Iwuliis,
An interesting antiquity has recently
been discovered at Palenque, in the
Chiapas district of Mexico, The monu
ment i3 situated upon the river Xhupa.
Although it is now a complete ruin, was
originally a structure of considerable
height, as three distinct stories are still
distinguishable. The ground floor is very
large, measuring some 120 feet by 75 feet.
Tho floor above is attained through holes
in the ceiling or vault, nd here a room
is found measuring some 27 by 9 feet.
Tho openings referred to aro natural and
have been formed by the disintegration
of the stone and tho sinking in of the
roof. On stone slabs set into tho wall
are bass relicf3 of human figures, war
riors, etc. Although these stones aro in
a very bad state of preservation they are
to bo sent to the capital of Chiapas. Near

Progress in Mexico.
Railroads aro doing a great deal now
for Mexico. About four years ago I
made a very extensive trip through that
country, and I have just returned from
covering practically the same ground. I
was hardly prepared for the changes
made, but can now see what roads now
projected and being constructed will do
in the next few years. The railroad
people, however, have had considerable
uphill work, as the people were hardly
ready for such means of conveyance and
had to be educated. In the course of
this education some novel ideas and ex
pedients have been employed. The small
farmers and vegetable producers, for in
stance, could not get over the old idea of
loading up their burros and trudging
into the city of Mexico with their pro
ducts. Thus the spectacle of a train of
empty cars and a long line of heavily
laden and slow moving burros, driven by
the patient farmer, was furnished. Fi
nally some one hit upon the happy idea
of offering a low rate for hauling the
burros. It waa gradually accepted, the
farmers loading up their burros as usual
and driving them on the cars bound for
tho city. In this way they began to see
tho vaiuo pf vapid "transportation, and
gradually awakered to the fact that the
burros were useless. Now tho railroads
are receiving the business very much lis
in any other country, though scone of the
smaller farming class. stiU stick to the

In the American Museum of Natural
History there are four specimens of th.ti
Labrador duck. Two are adult males,
ono an adult female and one a young
male. Fifteen or twenty years ago these
ducks were very plentiful, and wero sold
ia Fulton market for food at very mod
erate prices. Now they are entirely ex
tinct, and only five specimens are known
to be in this country, the fifth having
formerly belonged to tho museum col
lection, but being now at tho Smith
sonian Institution. In all the museums
of Europe there are only seven.
The adult male is quite black, except
ing on tho wings, head and neck, which
are perfectly white, tho crown of tho
head being topped with black. Tho
female la of a grayish dove color, tho
young malo being exactly the same in
appearance, except that tho head and
neck are somewhat larger than thoso of
the female. The bill and foot are very
similar to thoso of the mallard duck, and
the size is about tho same as that of tho
ordinary canvas back. New York Times.
Oncer Conduct of a Goose.
A party of boys were hunting at night
near Paxton, Ind., and their dogs treed a
coon. They built a fire in order to see to
shoot tho coon. Suddenly there was a
mysterious wliirr in the air that startled
the youthful hunter3. Almost at the
samo time a dark object struck the fire
they had built with such force as to
make the sparks fly in all directions.
Tho young hunters for a moment could
not realize what had happened, but on
examination they discovered that a large
wild goose had sailed straight into the
fire. Tho goose turned several somer
saults and balanced itself after its revo
lution on its feet in time to receive a
blow from a cudgel in the hands of
young Walters, who proudly carried off
the prize. The goose incident removed
the coon entirely from the minds of . the
young Nimroda. Chicago Herald.
Ilees as Ventilators.
I do not know whether It is generally
known that in India, and I believe in
other tropical countries, there are in
every hive what one can only describe as
"ventilating bees." I mean that during
the hot 6eason two or three bees post
themselves, on their heads, at the en
trance cf the hive and fan the interior
with the incessant motion of their wings.
They are relieved at intervals by fresh
bees, who carry on thejrocess. They
are kept to their duty by a sort of patrol
of bees to insure their incessant activity.
This is a well authenticated and known
fact. St. James Gazette.
