ald. A Really Absentmlnded Woman.
An absentminded woman put herself
on record the other morning in a cross
town car, -which she boarded at Sixth
avenue, bound east. She paid her fare,
said "Third avenue" to the conductor,
took a second nickel for her ticket on the
elevated, and, shutting her purse, gave
herself over to some evidently absorbing

moment later the conductor, making his
round again; noticed the nickel and me

gave it to him without a word and iode
on. Near Fourth avenue she suddenly
started out of her reflections, glanced
around," saw that she was near her des
tination, took out a third nickel to have
it ready and once more knit her brews
in meditation. Before Third avenue was
reached the conductor passed her again.
This time she proffered him the nickel,
which he would stolidly have taken save
for the intervention of an old gentleman
"Madam," he said, "you have already
paid your fare twice."
The woman started and looked con
fused, then a light dawned on her face,
she thanked the gentleman, put her
nickel into her purse and the purse deep
into a mysterious pocket somewhere in
the back of her dress just as Third
avenue was reached. When last seen
she was hurrying up the stairs strug
gling to fish the purse out in search of
the heretofore too convenient nickel.

"They Found the Indians.
One night in the tent I heard a cow
boy tell this story: He was with a big
outfit moving cattle, and one day, some
where near the line separating Colorado
from New Mexico, they encountered a
settler's cabin which had been plunder
ed by Indians. The settler and his wife
and children had been killed. The fore
man was sent for, and he immediately
ordered that the cattle be allowed to
take care of themselves while the cow
boys went after the Indians. Three par
ties set out at once, one commanded by
the foreman and the other two by ex
perienced men. One party came back
in a day without finding any trace of the
Another party came back in two days
without finding any trace of the Indians,
but at the end of the third day tho third
party came back whooping and yelling
and firing off their pistols, they had found
the Indians, killed .every one of them
and captured their ponies. Cor. Topeka
- The Ice Invasion.
On both sides of the Atlantic equally,
the intercalation of fossilized forests
bears authentic witness to the sweeping
over the land of two great waves of ice
invasion. The trees manifestly grew
where the glaciers had been; again the
glaciers crept forward to constitute
themselves the sepulchers of the trees.
The second advance, however, fell short
of the first, and succeeded it at an un
known interval of time. Oninions are
much divided as to its true significance.
Dr. Wright inclines to connect the "forest
beds" with merely partial oscillations of
the ice front. Edinburgh Review.
Fences in England.
English bar fences have the appear
ance of being bottom side up somewhat
as an y looks when inverted. But it is
all right; lumber is scarce there, and it
isn't necessary to have the bars so close
together up where the horses and cattle
are as down where the sheep and pigs
would be tempted to crawl through.

Jay Gould's I took.
Occasionally Btvjie person knocks at
the door of J7 Gould's office in the
Western Union building with a copy of
"The History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exists in the minds of many
people that Mr. Gould is desirous of
suppressing this publication as com
pletely as possible, and that ho will pay
almost any price to get possession of the
few stray copies that are left- Resi
dents of Delaware county aro authority
for the statement that several years Jigo
an agent of Mr. Gould's scoured 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 yon
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 prico for one of those ooks.
And nobody is able t explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress the pub
lication, unless it is that he thinks there
is too much sentiment in it for a man of
his present reputation. New York
Tho Unrevxaoning Crowd.
Speaking of the ueer things to be Been
on the streets, it is really astonishing
how instinctively one person imitates an
other. A man with a passion for psy
chical research has been proving this by
eome experiments which are, to say the
least of it, original. Going along about
dusk the other night in advance of a
small party of folk, he suddenly turned
out into the muddy street, as if avoiding
something in front. Unqnestioningly
every person behind did the same thing
in spite of the mire.
It isn't likely that they felt the full
humorous force of the incident in quite
the way he did, however, when they saw
him face about and walk calmly back in
the beaten path. The sheep went to all
the trouble of jumping over a bar of
dust, to be sure, but it would really
seem worth while if human beings could
think a little more independently and
for themselves. The truth of it is, it is
just this blind unreasoning herding to
gether that leads to half the accidents
and panics which are cropping up on all
sides. Boston Transcript.
Antidotes for Snake Poison.
The erfect of snake bite 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 er
manganate of potassium will not suffice,
although a solution of the latter will
take away the poisonous property of the
snake's venom if it be 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 ia
generally reconimended.-Qmrterly 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
land since Roman times. Brand gives
several authorities for it. Friend refers
to the case of the bride of Henry VII at
Bristol in 1486, 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.
A Physician's Fees.
South Africa responds to modern in
novations. A recent traveler in Kaffir
land tells this incident:
As we were npsaddling, there passed
us a man driving a small flock of goats
and several head of cattle. This was
the husband of a lady physician who is
ruining the practice of the local witch
doctors, and he was taking home his
wife's fee for attending a patient.
Not the Man in Question.
A laborer in a rough felt hat and long
smock walked the other day into the
Shakespeare library, and after looking
attentively for some time at one of the
custodians, went up to him and said, "I
6ay, znr, be yon Mr. Shakespeare as I've
heern speak ov?" The custodian ex
plained to Hodge that he was not the
gentleman referred to. London Telegraph.

Patent Grave Marker.
The expense of a funeral in a largo
city has grown to such proportions that
the average man commits more extrav
agance in the act of dying than ho ever
did during life. It has been suggested
that a much less costly form of grave
stone than usually erected would meet
all the requirements of affectionate re
membrance and respect, and the sugges
tion has been carried into effect in the
patenting of a "grave marker." This is
simply a memorial leaf. It consists of
two outer plates bent so as to form a
holder for leaves or tablets, adapted to
be suspended from a framo to receive
and retain objects desired to be kept as
mementos of the deceased.
Tho tablets beneath the outer plates
can bo designed in any desired form,
and as they have slides of mica or trans
parent material to protect the tokens
any object such as photograx'hs, sketches,
etc., can be inserted. For instance, a
sketch of the life of tho departed or a
portrait or a lock of hair can bo placed
in the receptacle, where it is securely
protected from the weather, and as it is
covered by mica it will last for many
years without bleaching or decaying.

Antidotes for Snake Venom.
Snake bites are always dangerous and
should be attended to as soon as possible,
as the venom spreads very rapidly, par
ticularly in warm weather. The follow
ing recipo is perfectly reliable and, be
ing simple, is easily obtained. Take an
onion and cut it crosswise and hold one
half of it on the wound until it turns
green. Apply persistently and the
onion will finally draw out all tho
poison. Many old woodsmen will not
be without several onions at certain
times of year when in the woods.
The old white haired darky that first
gave me this recipe has spent the best
portion of his life in the swamps, where
the rattlesnake, copperhead and other
deadly repriies abound, and he assured
me he has never known it to fail. A
strong ligature should be tied tightly
above and below the bite to prevent the
poison spreading through the system.
Copious drafts of brandy should be
given freely. A little ammonia taken
internally is very good also. The above
simple remedy is equally as good for
beast as for man. Richmond Times.
Chi nose Weddings.
The chief incident in a Chinese mar
riage is the arrival of the bride in her
bridal clothes before the house of her
chosen one. This is a de facto fulfill
ment of the contract. The wedding
day is determined by the parents of the
groom. The imperial calendar names
the lucky days, and on such days the
so called "red celebrations" take place,
both in the city and country. The same
bridal clothes may be used several
times. That the chief part of a Chinese
marriage is the arrival of the bride at
the house of the groom is illustrated
by the fact that the sons are often mar
ried without being present at their own
weddings. It is not believed to be for
tunate to change the wedding day when
once decided. If the future husband,
therefore, happens to be called away on !
the wedding day the marriage takes
place by sending the bride to his house.
Caught a Partridge on the Fly.
A Deering Nimrod tells a good story
of a recent adventure with a young par
tridge. These chickens of the woods are
noted for the celerity with which they
disappear from the intruder who blun
ders into their coverts; but in this par
ticular case one of the flock upon being
scared np by the dog flew directly to
ward the hunter. The latter, seeing the
young partridge coming, held up his
hands and caught it as he would a ball.
The little creature was much terrified
at first, but immediately regained confi
dence, so that when the hunter put it
upon the ground it stood contentedly a
moment eyeing the hunter and then
leisurely hopped away. Portland Press.
Exercise and Blood Circulation.
The circulation is controlled mainly
by the action of the heart. When the
activity of this organ is increased, there
fore tha general circulation will be im
proved. Now, the heart is stimulated
to action by the presence of blood in its
cavities, and muscular exercise, by has
tening the flow of venous blood, will be
instrumental in . sending more fluid
through them in a given period of time,
and.consequently in stimulating the or
gan to increased activity. Dr. J. M.
Rice in Popular Science Monthly.
