Some of the counciimen seemed
to think that the street could be
opened for $S0O. The road can be
opened by taking a round-a-bout
way, it is claimed, for $800. Murphy
moved that if the Hillings, Koss
and Glee properties could be pur
chased for that amount, the city at

the same. The motion was lost.
It was then moved and seconded
that the mayor appoint a commit

A Fly That Kli'm Horses.
All white men who visit regions in
Africa infested by the tsetse fly have
much to say about it. There is now
evidence that the tsetse is moving grad
ually to more northern regions, and the
cause is - supposed to be that South
Africa is depleted of its large game,
much of which is moving northward to
get away from hunters, and the tsetse
fly is going with it.
The insect is only a little larger than
the ordinary house fly, and it resembles
the honey bee. Its sting is hardly as
annoying as that of the mosquito, but
near the base of the proboscis is a little
bag which contains its poison. It lives
on the blood of animals, and only a few
species are fatally affected by its bite.
Cattle, horses and dogs, however, can
not live when bitten by the tsetse fly.
Natives who herd cattle and travelers
who depend on horses and oxen must
avoid the fly regions or lose their stock.
For human beings its bite has no serious
consequences. inttsDurg inspatcn.
A Perfectly Healthy People.
The Parsees are sun worshipers, and
it is an interesting sight to see throngs
of them on the shore of the bay as the
sun rises, apparently from the sea, per
forming the simple rites of their religion,
the fluttering robes showing their fine
figures to the best advantage as the day
begins. Their religious practices are
simple in the extreme, consisting main
ly in strict dietary rules and personal
The rigid observance of sanitary laws
produces the natural result of perect
health among the adults, large families
of active, healthy children and immense
numbers of old men, gray bearded,
white haired, but erect and princely in
their gait and attitude, despite the
naturally enervating characte of the
tropical climate. Cor. Washington
The Ctfmmon Snake.
The common 6nake is found through
out Europe (save in Ireland, the Ork
neys, Hebrides, bneuana islands and
Iceland), extending northward in Scan
dinavia to 65 degs. It abounds in Sic
ily, Sardinia and Corsica, and occurs,
though rarely, in Algiers, bnt not thence
eastward in Africa. It is found in Per
6ia and western Siberia, and Asia as fa.,
Lake Baikal, and in the Alps at an alt t
tude of 6,000 feet. Quarterly Review.
A. Snake That Is Pound In Many Places.
The common snake, which bears the
scientific name of Tropidonotus natrix,
is one species of a genus (Tropidonotus)
which extends over Europe and North
America, and from northern Asia to
north Australia, there being seventeen
or eighteen Indian species alone. Our
common snake may serve as an example
or the largest family into which serpents
are divided the family Colubridas of
which there are upward of 165 species in
India alone. This family contains most
of the harmless snakes, and it is also il
lustrated by a small snake, Coronella
austriaca, which some years ago was
discovered to be an inhabitant of Dorset
shire and Hampshire. The Coronella
feeds exclusively on lizards, slow worms
and small snakes. Though harmless, it
will bite. Quarterly Review.
The First False Hair.
In very early days, as now, the hair
was sometimes thin and it had to be
eked out in various ways to make be
lieve that nature had been spendthrift
to all alike. About the first description
extant of woman's hair speaks of "plaited
locks." known as "Gretchen braids' to
us. To make these braids seem longer,
ilk the color of the hair was braided in.
Then they they took to putting the
braids in cases of silk, elongating them
with all sorts of stuff till they looked
like umbrellas in covers. The Chinese
pigtail is a modification of this style.
- Punished by the Csar.
The czar of Russia knows how to
brace np his military officers to their
duty. A merchant of Charkoff was
murdered by soldiers, and it was shown
that had the officers of the regiment
stationed in the town maintained proper
discipline the murder might have been
prevented. As a punishment for this they
have been ordered to pay a yearly pen
sion of 5,000 rubles to the widow of the
murdered man. Toledo Blade.
