Jay fiouMN Book.
Occasionally some jxrson knocks at
the door of Jay Gould's office in the
Western Union building with a copv of
"Tho History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exists in the minds of in.mv
people that Mr Gould is desirous of
suppressing this publication as com
pletely as possible, and that he will jav
almost any price to get possession of the
few 6tray copies that are left. Resi
dents of Delaware county are authority
for the statement that several years ago
an agent of Mr. Gould's bcou red that
county for these books and bought near
ly all of them at fancy prices. When
ever a copy of this particular history of
Delaware county is displayed in that
county at the present day the older resi
dents will advise the owner, "Jist you
take thet down ter New York, an Jay
Gould'll give yer thirty or forty dollars
fer it." It is certain that nobody in Mr.
Gould's office ever heard of his paying
any such price for one of th(xse books.
And nobody is able to explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress the pub
lication, ttnless it is that he thinks there
is too much sentiment in it for a man of
his i,resent reputation. New York

When tlie forty-iive have been selected
the elections are over and the people go
home feeling that they have witnessed
an event more interesting and more ex
citing than the gradnating exercises
which take place when a whole class are
abont to leave the school. Nothing more
is done to the students who have lieen
slapped nntil the next Tuesday. What
occurs then is seen by nobody except a
few of the students who gather in front
of the secret society houses.
The names even of the societies are
not known. They are called Skull and
Bones. Scroll and Key, and Wolfs
Head, because each member wears a
little gold pin, with one or another of
these objects on it as the case mav be.
The Skull and Bones pin is a horrid
bit of gold in the shape of a human sknil
and crossliones. The Scroll and Key.
as the name implies, is made up of "a
small sheet of gold, like an ancient piece
of paper. On the scroll is a key, above
the key are the letters 'C. S. P." and
below the key are the letters "C. C. J."
What they stand for only the wearers of
the pins know.
The other society has for its pin a lit
tle gold head of a savage looking wolf.
Often the eyes are made of two bricrhtlv
Another wonderful thing about these
pins is that the wearer never loses one.
He never laj-s it down even for a second.
Of course they have to bathe, and how
do you so suppose they do then? You
would think they would have to lav the
pin aside at that time anyway, wouldn't
you? Cut they don't; they hold the bit
of gold in their mouths!
Bones" is the oldest of the three so
cieties. Tradition has it that the pins
first appeared in 1932. About ten
later men who had expected an election
to "Bones' and were disaptiointed or
ganized the Scroll and Key. Wolfs
Head was founded less than ten vears
ago, but today is almost as exclusive in
its membership as either of the others.
In fact it generally represents as much
wealth among its members as the two
other societies combined. New York

Antidotes for Snake I'oixon.
The effect of snakebite depends partly
on the condition of the snake and partly
on that of the person bitten and the part
attacked. No effectual antidote has yet
been discovered. Ammonia and ier
manganateof iiotassium will not suffice,
although a solution of the latter will
take away the jioisonous property of the
snake's venom if it le mixed therewith.
Immediate amputation of a bitten toe
or finger is the best course, as the delay
of a few seconds ' may suffice to convey
the poison into the patient's circulation.
If from the-nature of the part bitten
amputation cannot be performed, a very
tight ligature applied after cauterization
and sucking" the part is the best course,
and the administration of stimulants is
generally recommended. Quarterly Re
view. Ilice and Wheat at Weddings.
Throwing rice and wheat at a wed
ding is a relic of an old Roman custom.
and has probably been common in Eng-
lauu since xvoman times, uranu gives
several authorities for it. Friend refers
to the case of the bride of Henry VH at
Bristol in I486, when wheat was thrown
upon her with the greeting, "Welcome
and good luck!"
Rice is used similarly at weddings in
India, and the substitution of this grain
for wheat in our own country of late
years may be partly due to that fact;
but where wheat cannot readily be come
at rice would naturally suggest itself as
a substitute. Notes and Queries.
