The scene of the following incident
was auouc forty miles from Glovers
vine, on a beautiful little lake juht
across the table land at Piseco lake in
Hamilton county. The lake is not large,
in no place being more than a mile wide.
while it measures from two to three
miles long. The day was all that a
luherman could desire, and every condi
lion was right for good h-slung. A party
or inree were in tho boat, namely, L. E.

from Ilrookljn, and the writer. They
had driven up from Garoga and were
more than delighted with their luck.
They had taken nearly fifty pickerel in

The '-"st turn around the "lucky point"
was being made before we started for
home. Everest, who was trolling one

"I've got another; he's a good big one

Everest let him play at one time near

be turned. When he had been brought
Into eight he was not so large as some

was an unusual motion all about him.
Soon the line was drawn so tightly it
was necessary to let him play again

that a larger pickerel had attempted to
swallow the one on the hook," which was
now quite exhausted,

not find them stuck on a bar in mid

showed signs of battle, being bitten in
several places. Upon opening him we
found, as is Qften the case, a fish of
smaller size in his stomach. This one
showed signs of life, and was opened.
We then discovered a pretty little golc"
chatelaine watch, and were surprise
that the time agreed with our watcher
and that it was running.
More than pleased with our fishing ex
pedition, we returned to the Adirondack
hotel, and informed Landlord George

Millions of Fungi Spores.
All the energies of the fungus plant
seem to be directed to the production of
germs for propagating its kind. Their
number is often almost incalculable,
You have doubtless observed that the
common puff ball when mature is filled
with a fine dust, and this consists en
tirely of spores corresponding to seeds,
which are eventually diffused in the air
by the bursting of the puff balL In a sin
gle puff ball more than 10,000,000 of them
have been counted, and when these

from which they could be excluded.
Their astonishing fertility and rapidity
of growth are among the most remark

An Air Tight Prison.
While some men were squaring the
trunk of an oak they had just felled they
suddenly started back in astonishment
on seeing a hideous toad about the size
of a large pullet's egg incrusted in the
tree 4 inches in from the bark and 15
feet from the root. Though mangled
by the ax the creature still moved, but
it appeared old, thin and decrepit. A

"Throw her hard to larboard," the old
timer said; "There's a big snag twenty
feet in front.
There was a clanging of bells below
decks, and the passengers in their berths
felt the boat lurch violently as the ma
chinery was reversed and the steamer
answered her rudder. But it was too
late. In thirty seconds there was an
other jar, greater than the first. The
Martha's nose seemed to climb into the
air. An effort was made to back the
boat, but it would not budge. Then the
passengers became panic stricken, run
ning about in their night garments and
threatening to jump overboard. The
clear headed captain was on hand in a
moment, however, and before the old
steamer had settled a foot every passen
ger was started for the shore.
In the morning we watched the cabin
of the Martha float off while we stood
on the great bluffs just above Roche
port. Then the hulk sank out of sight.
The owners of the Martha did not
save their bacon. The sleepy pilot
saved his by escaping through the woods.

The question of the duration of con
sciousness In the brain of criminals after
execution by hanging or by the guillo
tine is being discussed with greater in
terest than ever since Anastay, the mur
derer of Baroness Del lard, paid his debt
to society. It is said that this remarka
ble criminal sent to his brother a letter
on tho subject as follows:
The reparation of my body and that whlck
fonstitute ray thinking being cannot so sooa
be accomplished. I believe there ia a survival
of about an hour. Come, then. Leon, be pres
ent at my execution and Insist that my head
be given to you. Call me with roar voice and
my eyes will reply to you.
This is but the repetition of a popular
belief that has prevailed for centuries
There is a legend of a state execution Is
England at an epoch when the ax arjd
block were in use, which Beta forth thai
after the instrument had fallen the per
son whose head was on the block ex
claimed, "You have missed met to
which the executioner replied with a
slight kick that sent the head rolling to
a distance. The story never gained much
credence, but is still worthy of discus
sion. Its truth or falsity would depend
on the possibility of the instrument
being so thin and sharp that the walls
of the veins would not be displaced, ii
which case the circulation of the blood
might continue for a few seconds, and
whether consciousness might continue
for a moment after the vertebra of tha
neck was severed. This last difficulty
would be the greatest, since utter un
consciousness is supposed to be simnl
taneous with the severing of the spinal
cord or the breaking of the neck. In
any event, scientists who have taken tliG
trouble to study the faces of the guillo
tined for a few seconds after the fatal
stroke, or who have made experiments
with decapitated animals, do not favor
Several French physicians, and amone
them Dr. Paul Loye, now deceased, but
once a professor at the Sorbonne, have
experimented with dogs, using for their
hanging or decapitation machinery like
that employed in public executions.
The dog was chosen for the ex
periments as having the most mo
bile face and being able to repro
duce the movements which in rare
cases have been observed in human
subjects. Persons whom this treatment
of dumb animals might revolt are begged
to remember that the suffering is much
less than in vivisection, since these
methods of execution are generally rec
ognized as producing the least pain.
The guillotine employed by Dr. Loye
was similar to that used for the execu
tion of ordinary criminals in France. It
consisted of a triangular knife or ax,
surmounted by a mass of lead weighing
over twenty pounds and falling over
six feet upon the neck of the animal t
which was severed at the third verte-
rm 1 .
Dra. pnenomena ODservea were
similar to those remarked by other
French and by foreign savants whose
experiments have been less elaborate.
At the moment the head was detached
from the body the mouth opened wide.
as if the animal was making an extraor
dinary effort at inhalation. The tongue
was applied to the lower part of the
mouth and underwent a brief period of
agitation. 1 he eyelids were closed with
light contractions. Then the eyes were
opened and rolled from aide to side and
top to bottom, the pupils in the mean
time gradually contracting. At the
same time the jaws were opened and
violently closed, and the face was rapid
ly convulsed. This was followed by
changes at the corners of the mouth, vi
bration of the nostrils, trembling of the
lips and erection of the ears. The en
semble of these movements constituted
a series of horrible grimaces like those
seen on the face of the guillotined, and
seemed to express the most intense ag
ony. If the cornea of the eye was
touched the eyelids closed, but if an ob
ject, no matter of what kind, was placed
before the eye there was no movement.
Neither did crying nor whistling into
the ears of the dog appear to cause the
slightest sensation. The pinching of
the tongue caused a slight shrinking of
that organ. Although the pupil of the
eye was contracted, the approach of a
light rendered the orifice still smaller,
These phenomena occupy about ten
seconds, and are followed by a period of
repose continuing to the fifteenth or
twentieth second, during which the
mouth rests closed and the eyes open
and without movement. At the end of
this time the mouth opens and closes
quickly, the nostrils dilate and contract.
During this time, although the irritation
of the cornea has caused a slight wink
ing, neither whistling in the ear nor
touching the tongue or nostrils with am
monia or cologne has been able to pro
duce any effect. The opening and clos
ing of the mouth resemble yawninsr.
and are reproduced a dozen times, after
which the motions gradually cease.
Then the cornea loses its sensibility to
the touch, though, half a minute haviner
elapsed, the yawning is still active. The
pupil of the eye dilates at the approach
of light, but does not contract, and the
cornea loses its glistening appearance.
At the end of two minutes the yawning
and other phenomena have ceased, end
ing in mere contraction of the fibers,
and the head takes a corpselike look.
