How It htli t Hatre a Lion Bit Ta-
Mr. Inverarity, a nembfr of the Bom
bay bar. Bay: "So large an animal an a
lion coming at full speed against you of
course knx-ks yon olf yonr legs. The
claws and teeth entering te flesh do
not hurt bo much as you would think.
The only really jMiinful ihuI of the busi
ness is the squeeze given by the jaws on
the bone. I felt none of the dreamy
stupor Livingstone describes, but on the
contrary felt as usual. I adopted irif
course of lying quite still, which 1 U
lieve is the lest thing one can do, a
you are quite helpless with a heavy am
mal on you. and they are inclined to
make grab at everything that mows,
and the fewer bites you can get off with

The power of the lion's jaws may oo in-
rrri from th fact that tho nones
that Beized me, although it nau a
broken jaw, scored deep grooves in tlx
barrels of my rifle with her teeth. Sow:
claw wounds were mere scratches
which 1 attribute to the fact that they
clutch at the surface of your coat, think
ing it is all solid underneath, and
reach the flesh pretty late. In tact, mv
coat was torn in some places without
any corresionding wound beneath.
"I never felt the slightest shock. Tigers
and panthers, as a rule, immediately
leave any one they seize in a charge. 1 :
this lioness, having left me, went a f j.

my arm. 1 got no bite the first go of; .

A Mneh Dreaded Fly.
The man eating fly of Central Amor
ica inhabits the low lying coast regions,
and is much dreaded by the natives fr
the fearful results which follow its
sting. Naturalists call it Lucilia homi
nivora. The average specimen is about
a third of an inch long. It has a big
head, with the eyes on top. Its cheeks
are a golden yellow, its abdomen dark
blue with purple bands, its legs black,
its wings unusually big, and they pro
duce a continuous and loud buzzing
when in motion.
The person bitten by this fly gets a
disease called myiasis. It generally lo
gins with an itching of the nose, then
that organ swells and bleeds; next it be
comes ulcerated, and in these ulcers
may be found tho larvae of the fly. The
whole face becomes swollen, erysipelas
sets in, followed by meningitis and
death. One man 1 knew shot himself
after he had been bitten rather than
face the tortures he knew were certain.
Cure is difficult. Subcutaneous injec
tions of chloroform sometimes do good,
but as often fail. One man 1 heard of
was cured by lemon juice injected into
his blood. Interview in New York
Life Lost In War.
Dr. Engel, German statistician, gives
the following as the approximate cost of
the principal wars of the last thirty
years: Crimean war, u.uw.wu.
Italian war of 1859, $300,000,000; Prusso
Danish war of 1864, $35,000,000; war
of the rebellion north, $5,100,000,000:
south, $2,300,000,000; Prusso-Austrian
war of 1866, $330,000,000, Russo-Turkish
war, $125,000,000; South African wars,
$8,770,000; African war, $12,250,000;
Srvo-Rnl-arian. S176.000.000. All these
wars were murderous in the extreme.
The Crimean war, in which few bat
tles were fought, cost 750,000 lives, only
50,000 less than were killed or died of
their wounds, north and south, during
the war of the rebellion. These figures,
it must be remembered, are German.
and might not agree precisely with the
American estimates. The Mexican and
Chinese expeditions cost $oo,uuu,uuu
and 65.000 lives. VThere were 250,000
killed and mortally wounded during the
Russia-Turkey war. and 45,000 each
in the Italian war of 1859 and the
war between Prussia and Austria. San

Ammonia has been carried in con
siderable quantities on the upper decks
of steamshiiw, but in many vessels tho
littles, carlniys. or tins are stowed in the
between decks. In fact, they are some
times stowed in vacant cabins of cargo
vessels. The explosion of one of these
receptacles awakened attention to th
placing of such substances dangerously
near heat. The master of the vessel on
whose ship the explosion happened un
screwed the tops of all those undamaged,
and thus allowed the gas to blow off.
Restrictions on carriage of dangerous
goods were imposed under the merchant
shipping act, 1873, section 23 of whi' h
provides that if any person sends or at
tempts to send by, or, not being the mas
ter or owner of the vessel, carries or at
temnta to carry in any vessel, British
or foreign, any dangerous goods, such as
aquafortis, vitriol, naphtha, gunpowder.
lucifer matches, nitroglycerin, petro
leum, or any other goods of a dangerous i
nature, without distinctly marking then
nature on the outside of the packages
containing the same, and also giving
written notice of the nature of such
goods and the name and address of the
sender, he shall be liable to a penalty
not exceeding 100; but if the person
sending tho goods on board is merely an
agent and ignorant of its contents, th
penalty is not to exceed ten pounds.
False description makes the sender
liable to a penalty of 500. The master
or owner of a ship may refuse to take on
board a vessel any suspicions package,
and mav require it to be opened to ascer
tain its contents. Clause 26 in the act
ma ulroavt lp(n looked unon as a mis
take in legislation. The master of
nhinia empowered to throw overboard
eoods of a dangerous nature which have
p ... ... i , . . i
been sent witnout oeing marseu or uuw
fied of their true character, and neither
the master nor the owner of the vessel
shall be subiect to any liability for such
casting into the eea, civil or criminal, in
There is no reason for denouncing the
carriage of ammonia by sea, but it is of
Ka oTP.-jtpst iin-nortanee that each pp?Hal
compound should be accurately deuut i ,
nnd that it ought not to bo exposed to
heat. If everything that expanded on
submission to heat were interdicted, the
shipping trade would be sadly ham
pered. For example yeast is shipped
for conveyance, and is usually carried
on deck. In hot weather the casks hava
been broken and hoops burst from ex
posure to the sun, although no material
damage is done. We could name other
breakages, but enough has been urged
to bring home tho necessity for under
standing what to carry and where to
tow it. Chemical Trade Journal.

The Mysterious Power of the Turquoise.
The turquoise, although not credited
with either remedial or protective prop
erties, so far as disease was concerned,
was nevertheless regarded as a kind of
svmnathetic indicator, the intensity of
its color being supposed to fluctuate with
the health of the wearer.
The latter, however, by virtue of the
stone he carrried, could, it was said, fall
from any height with impunity. The
Marauisof Vilena's fool, however, was
somewhat nearer the truth when he re
versed the popular superstition in his
assertion that the wearer of a turquoiae
might fall from the top of a high tower
and be dashed to pieces without break
ing the stone. Queries Magazine.

need of an overcoat in passing Agassia's
house" than any other in that city.--
