Tourists that visit Batavia nowaday
are quite out of the fashion if they fail
to make the paxsaxe through Sunda
strait and see all that is left of Krakatua
and the vestiges i.f tho ruin wrought hy
the terrible eruption of 1812. If they
push up the Uay of Lamionir, on the
Sumatra side of the channel, they are
likely to land on the low chores occu
pied by the village of Telokh-Detong,
and hire carts for a short jaunt into the
interior; and when they have trouo about
two miles they will pause to take in the
curious Rcerio presented: for here is seen
one of the most interesting results of the
great wave or Krakatau.
There was just one man amid all that
wild scene of death and devastation who
was not overwhelmed in the common
ruin, lie escaiil while 40.000 ierished.
lie was the lighthouse keeper, who lived
alone on an isolated rock in the strait.
It was broad daylight when Krakatau
burst asunder, but in a few moments
the heavens were so densely shrouded by
uuhi. muu ana smoke that the darkness
of midnight covered all the channel.

Here he remained safe and sound in the
midst of the terrible commotion.
lie telt the trembling of the light-
nouse. Dut it was so dark that he could
not see the threatened danger, lie did
not know that a tremendous wave had
almost overwhelmned the lighthouse.
and that its crest had nearly touched
the base of the lantern. He did not hear
It because he was deafened by the awful
uetonation of Krakatua.
In a few moments the wave, over
hundred feet in height, had swept along
a coasi line or a nunureu miles on both
Bides of the channel.
Scores of populous villages were buried
deep beneath the avalanche 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 that
tilled the heavens.
A little sidewheel steamboat was borne
on the top of that wave through forests
and jungle, over two miles into the coun
try, and was left as the wave receded.
It will be remembered that for weeks
before the final cataclysm at Krakatau.
the volcano was in a state of eruption.
Pleasure parties were made up at Ba
tavia to visit the volcano. Not a few
people landed on the island, little dream
ing that in the twinkling of an eye two
thirds of it was to be blown into the air
as though shot from a gun. They wished
" to get as near as they thought they might
safely venture to the growling, steaming
This little steamboat, on the day be
fore the explosion, carried one of these
parties to the island. There were only
twenty on board besides the crew. They
spent a couple of hours around the is
land and then steamed up the deep and
narrow Bay of Lampong, and it is sup
posed they anchored for the night in
front of the big town of Telokh-Betong,
which was one of the largest settlements
on the south coast of Sumatra.
The ill fated pleasure party was never
heard vf again. It is supposed tHat the
boat was turned over and over like an
eggshell in the surf. It had every ap
pearance of 6uch rough usage when it
was found some months later. The ma
chinery and furniture were badly broken
and were strewn about in the greatest
confusion. But the vessel held together,
and was finally set down in good shape,
erect on her keel.
Only two bodies were found in the
vessel. They were, of course, below
deck. As it was morning when she was
picked up by the wave it is supposed
that nearly everybody was on shore.
Not a vestige remains of the villages
that lined the water edge. But the hulk
of this little boat still stands, battered
and broken, though a3 erect as when
she plowed the channel, and she is the
most curious and interesting relic of the
greatest volcanic eruption of modern
times. New York Sun.

The Venom of Snakes.
As to the venom of serpents, no dis
tinct chemical principle has as yet been
detected in it, though such there mu.?t
be. seeing that the effect of the 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 has also been ascer
tained that if the blood of a poisoned
animal be injected into a healthy one
he latter will be poisoned in the same
way as if it had itstlf 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 have no effect
unless actually mixed with the blood.
It will act after being absorbed through
such delicate skin as that which lines
our lips, though its action when thus
received is less powerful. Quarterly

How the Map of Peking Was Made,
How a military map of Peking was se
cretly made is told by General Sir Robert
Biddulph. During the China war of
1860. in which Sir Robert was engaged,
our army was greatly embarrassed by
the absence of any map of the city. But
it happened that the Russian legation
had, onl a few months before, con
tnved to make a map in spite of the
jealous watchfulness of the Chinese.
They had sent an officer, in a small
coverea cart, sucn as tney use to carry
their women about, completely covered
in. An indicator was attached to the
wheel. He drove for a certain distance
to a certain crossroad, for example, and
"took a shot with his instrument; then
down the next road, 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
Ignatieff , who produced the map, offered
its use to the English. There were no
photographers then attached to the
army; but an Italian photographer, who
had followed the army for his own pri
vate purposes, being set to work, pro
duced a number of copies, which proved
extremely serviceable. London News.

Faith of Italiau Fishermen.
The blind faith of the Italian fisher
men in the efficacy of holy relics is pa
thetic. Many of them keep themselves
in a state of utter impoverishment in
providing necessary amulets and charms.
Not only is the fisherman's person cov
ered with these, but his boat must also
possess all possible saving power through
these religious appliances. Should some
great 6torm arise and genuine danger
come, one by one these objects are cast
upon the waves with a faith that is posi
tively sublime. Meanwhile his wife
ashore, possessed of the same implicit
and pious confidence, gives her most
precious relics to the sea that her hus
band may come safe to land. And I have
no doubt that when fatal disaster comes,
as it always does, this man sinks into
the silence beneath the tempest with his
last spark of vital consciousness an un-
dimmed flame of trust and faith. Ex
Gretvsome Superstition in Hungary.
A strange story of supersitition is re
ported from Hornoliez, in Hungary. Sev
eral bodies of men had been found there
with their heads cut off. An investiga
tion was made by the police, and it
turned out that these mutilations had in
every instance been committed by young
men who were betrothed to the widows
or the decapitated persons. The hus
bands hai 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 happiness. Hence they had per
suaded their new bridegrooms to decap
itate their deceased partners. fall Mall
