The London Lnnctt has jast recorded
a remarkable case, which adds one more
to the list of those which have bffn
placed on record to show what a man
will eat in order to satisfy the cravings
of his stomach and the jwiin ho suCVrs
whn he is starving.
The body of an Arab, who was si Mow
away on a ship which had just arri '..
was found in th hold, and w;w n
veyed to the Seaman's hospital at (ir'-ii-wich,
where a pit mortem was made.
The physicians noticed that the lx;V
was greatly emaciated, and on ojeniii;;
it several liard Iwxliea were observed ii:
the intestines. The alimentary canai
was thereupon op-ned, and in it tli-
found the following objects, which ira
tically turned the man's intestines into a
sort of museum.
The art idea were: Twenty troit--buttons,
three cog wheels, appaif
portions of a watch; a 2 -inch s
which was In.-iit double: a l-i.
screw, six pieces of a l.ck, the lavi
being half an inch long and half an ii..
broad; a circular piece of brass, several
pieces of iron ware, some bits of bra.s
and lead and two key tallies on a ring
an inch long. The weight of these vari
ous articles in mass amounted to exactly
half a pound
The time of one housekeeper has been
pretiy well occupied this season trying
to break up the business of a pair of
sparrows who have determined that they
are going to raise a family in a particu
lar spot under the roof of h'.-r side piazza.
The first net was removed and some
wire Fcreen drawn across the openiug,
but the birds picked and pulled away
enough of it to wriggle their little bodiea
through sideways, and built again. She
swashed them out this time with the
garden hose, but in a little while another
nest was located and four eggs deposited
The drowning out scheme was tried
once more, bat the birds didn't seem to
mind, and investigation showed that
they had roofed the nest over so that it
shed rain like an umbrella, and only a
little hole was left under one side for
them to crawl into. With the persever
ance of her sex the lady pulled the nest
down lor the third time, and tms wees
the birds began cheerfully on nest No.

an English sparrow. Springfield Home
stead A Ileal Summer Hunger.
To talk of guarding against cold ;ti
summer seems absurd, and yet it is as
necessary as in winter. Where the cli
mate is changeable a hot day is often
followed by a cool evening, or a sudden
rain storm chills the air, or a cold wind
springs up, grateful after the heat, but
dangerous to those who are thinly clad
unless they are protected from it Im
proper covering. Cotton is a good ti
ductor of heat and allows it o escape
rapidly from the surface of the body.
As soon as the surrounding air becomes
cooler than the skin it steals the heat
which the body requires for its owu
needs. A fresh supply of heat must be
produced, and thus the system is over
taxed to supply the demands of the rob
ber. Flannel is a bad conductor and
guards the tender body more faithfully,
retaining the heat. Elizabeth It. Scovil

riul.thed Hi Story.
On Jan. 15 two laborers were at work
on a railroad running into Indianapolis.
One was telling a story, and while bend
ing over he was accidentally struck on
the head with a hammer by his compan
ion and his skull was fractured. He was
rendered unconscious, and remained in
a comatose condition until last Friday
night, when Dr. (jr. D. Sturtevant, of
Indianapolis, trepanned the skull, and
immediately upon remov ing the pieces
of skull from against the brain the man
continued the story which was started
five months before and had lain latent in
his brain during all this time. Cor. bt.

Hair Turned by Lightning.
A curious instance of the blanching of
the hair was recently reported by the
Philadelphia Times. At Petersburg, in
the course of a thunder storm, a laun
dress named Ellen Barnes stood watch
ing the storm from the door of her house.
when she was struck by the lightning
and knocked senseless. Though unable
to speak for hours after being resuscitated
she recovered and was apparently unhurt
by the shock, except that a part of her
hair was turned a dazzling white. 1 ne
line of demarkation separating the black
hair from the white extended about an
inch and a Quarter to one 6ide of the
middle of her head.
Furniture, 50 Cents; Dogs, 811.
One of the assessors relates an odd ex
perience in Bucktown, near Indianapolis,
He called at the house of an old woman
whose furniture was valued at fif ty cents.
Under the law he had to place the value
at one dollar, which would make her tai
a fraction over one cent. As he was
about to lea-e the house he discovered
that the old woman was the happy owner
of six dogs, on which she was assessed

The jewels of that ill rated queen,
Marie Antoinette, whose tragic death
glorifies a frivolous life, are now on sale
in London. The price of a single pair of
earrings is S65.0O0, but the stones are of
wonderful brilliancy. A large pointed
drop, cut in facets like the pendants of
chandeliers, is suspended from a large
circular diamond by a tiny silver pin.
Don't go to the beach on a hot day
with the expectation of lowering your
temierature. It is hotter at the seaside
than in town, except when the wind
blows from the east, and in that case
is easy enough to keep cool in town. '

No Obstructive Wire hi Paris.
It should ls noted that the question
how to dispose of wires a" question that
makes so vast and so continually recur
ring an agitation in all American cities
never comes up at all in Paris, and is
seldom mentioned m any European city.
Then are aii- o!i:tely no ob! rnctive wires

the telephone as well as the telegraph
system, and all the wires for these her
vices are placed in the subways of

these minor questions of practical mi;

After the Jewelers.
Captain Porter's determination to tre.;t
as counterfeit money all money that i;
gilded and made into scarf pins or any
kind of ornament has roused the ire ot
iewelers irenerallv. Several dealers
called at the secret service ofSce'and
protested against Captain Porter's strict
interpretation of the law, and the editor
of a journal devoted to the interests oi
the trade gave him a scoring. Captain
Porter said his views had not changed
particle, and he straightway swore out a
warrant for te arrest ot Charles Korup
Korup has a place at 3-15 Clark street,
and he was caught with some gilded
nickels in his possession the edges of
which were milled. Korup was held in
$500 bail by Commissioner Hoyne.
Captain Porter says he will continue to
arrest all jewelers navmg this class of
goods in their possession. Chicago Trib

In making the excavations for the new
Trinity Lutheran chapel, on North Sixth
street, beyond Washington, it became
necessary to remove the remains in sev.
eral of the graves in the old cemetery
In one of the graves, which had been
there seventy-four years, a perfect skele
ton was found, under the head of which
was a razor, the handle of which had
rotted off. In the early days of tne
century it was customary to bury with
the body the razor which deceased had
used during life. The skeleton was in
a good state of preservation. The con
tents of the other graves simply consist
ed of a little dust. Among the old graves
is that of General Francis Swain, who
was in the revolutionary war and who
died in 18:20. Reading Telegraph.
Climbing; Mount Hood.
It is about time that parties were be
ing made up for excursions to Mount
Hood. It used to be a regular thing for
parties to be made up to climb that
mountain about this time of year, the
month of July being generally consid
ered the most favorable month for mak
ing the ascent. For some reason such
parties are not so common of late. Since
parties spent the night on the mountain
and burned red fire there on the evening
of July 4, the ascent of the mountain is
not looked upon as much of a feat.
Mr. Hood'i lt;il Case of IJlues.
T. H. Hood, a citizen of Frankfort.
Ind., has been subject to epileptic at
tacks, and, in consulting a young doc
tor by the name of Perkins, decided to
take his treatment, which consisted of a
small pill to be taken every night before
retiring. In a short time he began to
turn blue, and today he is as blue as in
digo. His entire body is blue, with his
face and hands a deeper hue. The doc
tors can ascribe no cause for the change,
and the best skill has failed to restore
natural color. Cor. Cleveland Leader.
An Untimely Death.
Isaac Dixon several months ago came
to this country from England and went
to work as a laborer in a rolling mill at
Passaic, N. J. He drank ice water to
excess Thursday and died Saturday as a
result. Since then it has come to light that
had he lived seven months longer he
would have received a large estate in
England. Why he came here and hired
out as a laborer no one appeared to
know. He was to be married within a
few weeks to a young lady of Paterson.
