EFFECTS OF A WAVE. A STEAMER STANDS HIGH AND DRY OVER TWO MILES INLAND. Sared by Ills Boota.

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. TtA - . .1: 1 - 1.1 iuoguiuuiim ui me iiguinouse was in the lantern 130 feet above the sea level. 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 crater. 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.

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 Review. Ad Important Amendment.

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.

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 change. 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 Gazette. A Judge Compliments a Lawyer.
