TattercnlosU In Bats.
For neven years I have been making
almost daily exiierinienta ujion the in
ternal organ of dead animals in order
to increase my knowledge of couijara
tive pathology. The iostniorteni ex
aminations were made for the mofet part
at the Lampatter Glue works, in the
suburbs of Lancaster, Pa. Here of
course were the bodies of large numbers
of animals which afforded me an abun
dant supply of subjects for examination.
The vicinity of the works swarmed with
rats. Many of those, the workmen told
me, sickened and died from time to time,
and I became curiouH to know eomething
about the disease that carried so many
of the rodents off.
I could rind next to nothing about the
rat in books, so the thought growing
upon me that the disease so fatal to the
rat might be made dangerous to the
rat's nearest neighbor, man himself, I
undertook a series of experiments. My
first rat subject was a sick one which I
captured in the yard of the glue works
rithout any exertion. The animal
crawled about, made no effort to escape
from me and when picked up offered no
resistance. Its appearance indicated that
it was dying of general debility. Its
body was greatly emaciated. Its back
was arched and its face bore an expres
sion of distress. It refused food, was
racked with a constant cough and in a
few hours after being captured was
found dead in the comfortable prison in
which I had placed it.
My next subject was a healthier and
more active rat. I caught him only to
mark him and then gave him his free
dom. He came into the yard regularly
for his rations of flesh from various ani
mals, but gradually showed the same
symptoms that marked the condition of
my first subject, and in fourteen days
after capture he, too, was dead. The
postmortem examination of these two
cases developed the fact that the lungs
were badly diseased. Tuberculosis had
destroyed the right lung of each and
only a part of the left remained. Dr.
S. E. Weber's Lecture.
Changes in an English School.
In 1824 Mr. Milnes Gaskell writes
from Eton that an upper boy "got spurs
and rode some of us (lower boys) over a
leap positively impossible to be leaped
over with a person on your back, and
every time (which is every time) we can
not accomplish it he spurs us violently,
and my thigh is quite sore with the in
roads made by those dreadful spurs; my
new coat is completely ruined." In the
next year Ashley minor, a son of Lord
Shaftesbury, died in consequence of a
fight which lasted two hours and a quar
ter on the same evening. The quarrel
originated about a seat in the upper
Dr. Keate spoke about the sad event
to the school three days later; he blamed
the boys for letting the fight go on so
long, but was not to be "seduced into
any namby pamby peace-at-any-price
sentimentalism." He said: "Not that I
object to all fighting in itself; on the
contrary, I like to see a boy return a
blow." Such a state of things has for
tunately entirely disappeared; a clergy
man, a head master, a doctor of divini
ty, however much he might feel that the
meek acceptance of injuries was not the
sign of a keen and generous character,
yet would now hesitate to mark fighting
with his approval before an audience of
boys whom he was bound by statute to
instruct in Christian principles. Na
How His Heart Was Won.
"When Colonel Van Wyck was run
ning for congress many years ago in the
Fifteenth New York district, there was
a certain Irishman who steadfastly re
fused to give the old soldier any en
couragement. The colonel was greatly
surprised, therefore, when Pat informed
him on election day that he had con
cluded to support him.
"Glad to hear it, glad to hear it," said
the colonel. "I rather thought you were
against me, Patrick."
"Well, sir," said Patrick, "I wuz, and
whin ye stud by me pigpen and talked
that day fur two hours or worse ye
didn't budge me a hair's breadth, sir;
but after ye wuz gone away I got to
thinking now ye reached yer hand over
the fence and scratched the pig on the
back till he laid down wid the pleasure
of it, and I made up me mind that whir
a rale colonel was as sociable as that I
wasn't the man to vote agin him." Ne

so pure that it does not require refining

A Dsownlna Ma Zsperlesee.
To prevent any person from lntorf sor
ing with my design I jumped Into the
river lato in the afternoon Friday. No
one appeared to bo about at tho tlma.
When I struck the water I immediately
sank, going down and down, and yet
being carried forward until I thought I
would never again arise. A sound roared
through my head; it seemed to mo It
would burst. I opened my mouth and
attempted to breathe, being unable to
endure the pressure longer, but the
water rushod in and I closed my moutn.
I was again compelled to open it. More
water entered. The feeling was horrible.
Just when I thought all was over I
reached the surface of tho water about
fifty feet from the shore and 100 feet
from where I had jumpod in. Near by
was a steamboat on which stood a man
with a long pole with an iron hook on
tho end. It took only a second to see
those things, and in fact I had just time
to get one breath when I again sank with
my mouth open. My past life flashed
before me, and I was again a child. The
picture of my father and mother stood
out in bold relief. I reached out my
hand to them. The roaring of the water
sounded liko the sweetest of music.
Suddenly I saw light and thought I wae
in paradise. A largo green field covered
with roses and other flowers, whoso fra
grance I could smell, came in view. I
felt as If I was being borne up by some
winged messenger whom I could not
see, but whose presence I could feel.
I remembered nothing more until I
felt a rough jerk. My rescuer had suc
ceeded in fastening the boathook in .my
clothing. As my body was being pulled
from out of the water the picture
changed; instead of paradise, the place
in which the devil dwells, with all its
fires and swarming with hideous, red
dressed creatures and other things, pre
sented themselves in my mind, only to
again quickly disappear and leave me
in darkness. When I came to I was sur
prised to learn I had been unconscious.
Every muscle in my body pained me,
but my brain was perfectly clear.

Andirons aa Ornament.
Genuine antique andirons are compar
atively rare in New York, and they an
for the most part of simple design, al
though ornate in detail often. The very
earliest andirons were of wrought iron,
and few of them have come down to
this century, especially in America.
One characteristic of early forms waa
the curved top, ending in a diamond
shaped mass of iron, from 1) to 3 inches
in diameter. The goat's foot, not with
divided hoof, however, is a common
characteristic of early form, in brass as
well as iron.
When the andiron was developed as
an ornament, small andirons, called
creepers, came to be used with the largo
ones. The latter were for show; the
creepers were to hold the logs, and per
haps to prevent them rolling out upon
the floor. Tho creepers were of wrought
iron, with front only ten or twelve inches
high, curving iuto a ball. Later they
were used alone in small fireplaces and
imitated and elaborated in brass. They
are not uncommon at the antique shops,
and they are exactly imitated in wrought
i iron by modern manufacturers and sold
at from $1.50 to $3 a pair. Another
comparatively early form is a wrought
iron stripjwith simply wrought iron feet
and a brass knob at the top. New York
One of Labouchere'f Stories.
One of Labouchere's stories about the
admiralty and the way "My Lords" con
duct their labors at Whitehall is as fol
lows: A few years ago a gun was lost by
bursting in the Sea of Marmora, and
upon reading the report of the admiral
in command of the fleet "My Lords" were
moved to telegraph to ask whether there
was any chance of the muzzle of the
gun being recovered. The answer was
that In view of the fact that the gun
had been lost in eighty fathoms of wa
ter, nearly out of sight of land, where
no cross bearings could have been taken,
the likelihood of its recovery was very
remote. Thereupon "My Lords" wanted
to know why no engineer's accounts had
been sent in from the vessel in question,
but they ceased telegraphing when the
admiral replied that the ship had been
for ten years a sailing- ship! Cor. New
Athletics in a Theater.
On one occasion during Mrs. Langtry's
tenancy of the St. James' theater, ath
letic sports were held on the stage after
the evening performance, in which not
only the members of the company, but
also Mrs. Langtry and her sister took
part. One rather novel event, which
was confined to the stage hands, was a
race from the stage to the gallery, in the
center of which Mrs. Langtry's hand
kerchief had been suspended. This was
awarded to the fortunate winner, to
gether with a substantial monetary ad
dition. London Tit-Bits.
Snakes That Climb Trees.
Those pit vipers without rattles which
belong to the Old World (Trimeresuri)
are Indian, and a dozen different species
are given and described by Mr. Boulen
ger. They are robust snakes, with rather
short tails, which can strongly grasp,
and thus they are enabled to climb about
trees which form their natural habitat
Perfumes Sometimes Injurious.
As a rule whatever perfume is un
pleasant to the individual should be
avoided, but as exceptions occur to
every rule, nervousness or debility
which cannot be accounted for may
sometimes be explained by the use of a
well known perfume. St. Louis Globe

troops took a prominent part. Tho rn

discovered tho beloved bey in evidently
a very excited state of mind. He at

him reassuringly on tho boot ho said:

The Scot -h bey, however, was equal
to the otxa, on. Ho roda out tnrougrj

After this it is not surprising to read in
dispatches that this officer has twice re

Jay Gould's nook.
Occasionally sowe person knocks at
tho 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 he will pay
almost any price to get possession of the
few stray copies that are left. Itosi
dents of Delaware county are authority
for the statement that several years ago
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 dinplayed in that
county at tho present day tho older resi
dents will advise the owner, "Jit yon
take thet down ter New York, an Jay
Gould'll give yer thirty or forty dollars
for it." It is certain that nobody in Mr.
Gould's office ever heard of his paying
any such price for one of those books.
And nobody is able t explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress tho pub
lfation, unless it is that he thinks thero

The Unreiwoniiig Crowd.
Sj)eaking of the jueer things to be seen
on the streets, il is really astonishing
how instinctively one person imitates an
other. A man with a passion for psy
chical research has been proving this by
ome 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, ho suddenly turned
out into the muddy street, as if avoiding
something in front. Unquestioningly
every person behind did the same thing
in spite of the mire.
It isn't likely that they felt tho full
humorous force of the incident in quit
the way he did, however, when they saw
him face aboat and walk cabnly 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
aeem 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 effect 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 ier
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 is
generally recommended. Quarterly Re
view. Rice 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 a
a substitute. Notes and Queries.
