"Heroism and Death.
During the floods of the Missis.si;ri
and Missouri rivers and their tributa
ries tho daily papers chronicled hun
dreds of cases, humorous, tragic and
pathetic, which occurred along tho
liank.s of thcuo ctcuas from tho junc
tion of tho two great bodies of water to
points below St. Louis. But while hun
dreds of cases have leen described, there
have been also hundreds of cases thai
have not been mentioned.
Homes have been swept away, pros
perous men made paupers -within a few
hours and poor dumb brutes drowned
while pleading in their pitiful way for
akl. Among tho incidents of the flood,
too, have been a few instances of gen
uine heroism which stand out as a wel
come relief to the usual somber hues of
Among the strangers recently located
in this locality just above St. Louis was
a man from Iowa. Ho had settled in a
little cabin near the river, and knowing
no one was unaware of his danger till
he found himself in the center of a sheet
of water five miles wide and rapidly ris
ing. Unablo to escape, he was step by
step driven with his few effects to tho
flat roof of his cabin, and prepared his
frugal meals there for two days. Two
men who saw him finally risked their
lives to save him, and succeeded in
bringing him safe to dry land.
Other similar cases have occurred, in
striking contrast with those numerous
instances where the possessors of small
boats and skiffs have compelled un
happy wretches to give them almost
their entire possessions for merely pas
sage to land.
A pathetic and mysterious incident
occurred in a southern suburb of St.
Louis, known as Happy Hollcw,
where poverty and squalor usually
reign, which embodied in itself ve'fy
evidently the elements of an interesting
romance. Happy Hollow on one side of
the street or alley or creek (River Du
Peres) doesn't know nappy Hollow on
the other side, and doesn't desire to.
The poverty and misery, and usually
the crime, of each individual is surly
and desires no companionship. Hence
when a gray haired gentleman and
young girl moved into the neighbor
hood and took a little shanty down ou
the levee no one asked any questions,
for no one cared anything about them.
They attracted no attention except for
their neat appearance. Their clothes
were clean in spite of their manifest
poverty, as were also their hands and
faces. After Happy Hollow recovered
from its shock of surprise at this phe
nomenal cleanliness, it went its way
without another thought of the
strangers. ' - -'v
The new residents of Happy . Hollow
had not leen there long- when the tood
came. By the end of a second day tiiey
are cut off from escape and on the thtrd
their little shanty was. swaying to and
fro. The few rough " spectators who
cared enough to note their distress 'were
indifferent. One or two who.- had "boats
called over and asked how much money
he had, and when the old man shook his
head sadly, they turned off with alaugh
and went to the nearest saloon. ."; '
One man, less brutal than the otnersY
sprang into a skiff and started over,-but
he was drunk and, capsizing the little
boat, he went to the bottom like a lump
of lead. The skiff righted itself and
floated along on the, water, and the old
man saw the only . chance for escape
drifting away. Syringing into the mud
dy, seething waters, he succeeded by al
most superhuman efforts in reaching the
little boat, only to find that the oars had
been lost out. Just as he became aware
of this fact he turned and saw the little
shanty, washed from its foundations,
come drifting down the resistless stream,
while the young girl stood in the door
way. Casting a look of regret behind him,
he sprang from his boat, which was a
haven of safety, into the water once
more and caught the edge of his shanty
as it came past. Climbing into the rick
ety doorway, he had just clasped his
companion in his arms when a pile of
driftwood struck the little building, tore
it to pieces like a cliild's playhouse and
the muddy, roaring waters swallowed
up forever two human lives.
A reporter for a morning paper found
among the debri3 washed ashore next
day several books with other things
from the little shanty. Among them
were "Histoirede la Poesie Provencale,'"
by Fauriel; Kant's "Kritik der Keinen
Veruunft," ftnd well thumbed copies of
Homer and Shakespeare. . Each work
was in its original tongue, and had evi
dently been read before. The name of
the: owner on tho fly" leaves or inner
cover had been carefully cut out, and
the secret of their live., if there was
one, was buried with tho owners in the
muddy and turbulent waters of the
great Mississippi. Detroit Free Press.

jurist from Sandusky used to hold dis

A Wonderful Carpet.
There will bo on view in the after
noons of the next few days what may
probably without any exaggeration be
called the finest Persian carpet in the
world. Tliis is the Holy Carpet of the
Mosque of Ardcbil in Persia a carpet
which for size, beauty, condition and
authenticated age is entirely unrivaled
by any known example.
The dimensions of the carpet are 34
feet 6 inches by 17 feet 6 inches. Th.
ground of the body of the fabric is of a
rich blue, covered with a floral tracery
of exquisite delicacy and freedom ol
treatment. A center medallion of pale
yellow terminates on its outer edge in
sixteen minaret shaped points, from
which spring sixteen cartouches foui
green, four red and eight cream; and
from two of these again are, as it were,
suspended and hanging in the direction
of the respective ends of the carpet, two
of the sacred lamps of the mosque. But
the most extraordinary detail of all is
the pale cream cartouche placed within
the lorder at the top end of the carpet,
bearing its inwoven inscription, which
is thus translated: "I have no refuge in
the world other than thy threshold.
My head has no protection other than
thy porchway. The work of the slave
of this Holy Place, Maksoud of Kashan,
in the year 912."
Now 942 of the Hegira is 1533 of om
era; so that the carpet was actually in
existence, in the mosque of the sacred
city of the Suffavian dynasty, at the
time when Queen Elizabeth sent An
thony Jenkinson on an embassy to Shah
Tamasp. It need not be said that carpets
thus signed and dated are extremely
rare, and are historically important as
forming the points de repere for the
students of oriental art. London Times.
The Largest Aerolite.
What is believed to be the largest
aerolite ever known to have fallen is ly
ing in the Caspian sea, a short dis
tance from the peninsula of Apsheron.
The aerolite made a tenifio noise as it
rushed through the air with incredible
speed, and the white hot mass made a
light that illuminated the country and
sea about for a great distance. Those
who saw it were were struck dumb with
consternation. When it struck the
water immense clouds of steam arose-,
and the hissing could be heard for a
great distance. Huge masses . of water
were thrown upward, and the sight to
those who - were not frightened was a
most beautiful one.
So enormous is the aerolite that it
projects twelve feet above the water,
and save for its fused black crust, which
gives it the appearance of having been
varnished, it has every appearance of be
ing one' of the usual rocky formations
met with along the coast. Scientists
are deeply interested in the phenomenon,
and a number of them are making
preparations to visit the peninsula to
examine the aerolite. Cable Letter.
. Jlecorating Snowdon.
A correspondent, who apparently is
an enthusiastic Londoner, keenly alive
to the possibility of improving our met
ropolitan monuments, and is at present
on a tour in North Wales, writes that
not only has a great flagstaff been erect
ed on the highest peak of Snowdon, but
a flag of extraordinary size has been
hoisted upon it. He was present at the
inauguration, and thinks that its folds
floating in the wind "add considerable
to the majesty of the unrivaled scen
ery." An American traveler in Egypt once
remarked that the pyramids were very
good in their way, but would show off
the desert better if they had a coat of
paint. Snowdon has been decorated at
much less trouble and expense, and may
now be congratulated on having an im
portant omission in its original design
thus satisfactorily rectified. The "Stan
dard on the Braes o' Mar" may hence
forward hide its diminished head. Lon
The Mice Pest in Scotland.
The report comes from Scotland that
the hill grazings and rough pastures of
6ix whole counties are overrun by mice
rats of a smaller growth. In two coun
ties alone they have virtually taken pos
session of 90,000 acres, and it has been
proposed that the affected ground be
burned, lest the vermin move upon the
planted fields and destroy the seed corn.
Suppose in their migrations they have
contracted some contagious disease,
such as diphtheria or tuberculosis, what
is to prevent the spread of these plagues
among the now healthy peasantry of
Dumfries, Roxburgh, Kirkcudbright,
Peebles, Selkirk and Lanark? Dr, S. E.

Preliminary to the Baptism.
When Bishop Goe, of Melbourne, was
a curate a famous pugilist in the parish,
who went by the name of Jim the Slog
ger and who had never darkened a
church door, called at the parsonage
asking him to baptize the baby. Ac
cordingly the bishop repaired to Jim's
house, but was surprised on being ad
mitted to see Jim lock the door and
pocket the key. "Be you the parson
come to sprinkle my kid?" he asked. On
the bishop assenting, he continued, "Yer
can't sprinkle that kid till you and me
has had a fight, parson."
The unfortunate parson protested, but
finding protest useless "stood up" to
Jim. The battle went for the bishop,
and Jim, pulling himself from the floor,
muttered, "He's the parson for me."
The baptism was proceeded with and,
as the story goes, Jim took to church
