AN INDIAN MUTINY.
rnlcts tlo fdgnii 1-itll, I.'iiKlnnd I Likely
Hoon to llino Trouble on llor Ilnniln.
Ouo dooH not look to tho staid nnd
dignified Spectator for tho nbsurditlcs
of scnsatlonnl journalism, and thcroforo
its grave luiuouncomcnt of n belief thnt
nnother Indian mutiny is closo nt hand
will much intensify tho growing fool
ing of nlarm ovor tho sitnntion in tho
Asiatic dominions of tho queen. After
expressing great apprehensions based on
recent dispatches nnd privnto letters
Tho Spectator says: "It is nt all events
within tho limits of possibility that
within tho next fow days nil questions
which now interest tho country may bo
swallowed up by tho intelligence thnt
wo havo for tho second tlmo in tho lost
half century India to reconquer.
"May is tho tlmo for inimrroctlous,
tho pcoplo bolloving that tho heat pros
trates whito men, and if a rising has
been nrrnnged it is during this mouth
thnt it wonld bnrst out all over north
ern India. Just nt this tlmo wo nppenr
to bo receiving ono of thoso strange
wnmings which havo frequently preced
ed disturbances, and which in 1857 took
tho form of tho distribution of chnpnt
tics llttlo unleavened enkes. Through
Behar nnd n part of tho northwest they
wero distributed by unknown hands, re
ceived in silouco as by men who under
stood what thoy meant nnd passed on to
meet overywhero with tho muno recep
tion. "This tlmo it takes tho Fhnpo of a
patch of plaster mixed with hair, with
which tho trees of tho endless mango
groves havo been secretly bedaubed
throughout Bchnr nnd tho provinces to
tho east nnd west. As iu 1857. no ouo
knows how this was done, or by whom,
though Jtas?-,, n ioiVI
must bo great. Tho police, if thoy know
anything, rovcal nothing, and tho pco
plo romnin lost in thnt apparently un
observant Bilcnco which, throughout
Asia, when n dangerous incident occurs,
menus mischief. Thnt silouco implies
nnd proves that if anything serious is
intended tho Hindoos and Mussulmans,
as in 1857, aro both iu it, for they both
understand national ways equally well.
Tho meaning of tho chnpatti as n signal
escaped tho government officials iu 1857
as tho meaning of tho distribution of
plaster escapes them now."
Tho alarmist utterances of Tho Spec
tator aro not without justification.
Thoro has been an uneasy feeling iu
Anglo-Indian circles for months. Many
persous of high nuthority iu India have
been writing homo thnt "Lord Elgin
will havo his hands full bel'oro long, "
nud "grnvo occurrences may bo expect
ed iu tho near future." It is significant
thnt tho inquiries of tho opium commis
sion havo contributed much to tho dis
content among tho natives, while tho
population of tho whole north is sulky
nnd rebellious bocnubu tho government
is trying to meet its losses by increasing
tho assessment of tho laud tux. Lon
PORTRAITS OF AMERICAN WOMEN.
A Nmi'l Loan Kxlilliltlon of l'ltlntlugii to
llenrflt New York ClinrlUcx.
Arrangements aro now being made
for n loan exhibition of old and modern
portraits of American women to bo held
early iu November at tho Academy of
Design. Such exhibitions of women's
portraits nro given by tho Gallery club
iu Loudon, but thoy nro new iu Now
York. It is proposed to divide tho pro
ceeds from this exhibition between St
John's guild and tho Orthopedic dis
pensary nnd hospital. Tho Indies repre
senting theso two chnrities who nro nr
rnnging this exhibition aro Mrs. ltobert
B. Potter, Mrs. II. Wiuthrop Gray,
Mrs. John A. Lowery, Mrs. Charles do
Ithnm, Mrs. J. I lobar t Warren and Mrs.
Adolf Lndenburg. Tho selection of tho
pictures will bo in tho hnuds of a com
mitteo of woll known nrtlsts.
It is believed that tho novelty of such
an exhibition, iu ndditiou to its artistic
merits, will iusuro its success. Thoro
nro iu Now York many vnluablo por
traits of women. Somo of them nro by
American artists nnd somo of them wero
painted abroad. So long as tho subject
is nn American woman tho painting
may bo hung iu this loan collection.
Already tho announcement of such an
exhibition has aroused interest, mid it
is intended to make it a social success.
Mrs. Lowery said last night:
"Wo proposo to have tho exhibition
during tho week of tho horso show, for
then thcro nro many peoplo iu town
who would Iks interested in such an ex
hibition. Thoro nro many fiuo portraits
of handsome women hero, nud I think
thnt such nn exhibition will attract at
tention nud benefit our charities. It is
inipossiblo yet to give any details about
tho paintings thnt will bo exhibited.
That rests with tho ortists who turo on
tho hanging committee, nud of course
it is too early for them to begin their
work." New York Sun.

Tho day of exorbitant chnrges in

Tho revolt of tho public, begun a few
months ago, has driven most of tho

ARE BLUE QUM3 VENOMOUS!
A Teini Doctor Experimenting With tho
Vlrm from a Tfrgro'a Mouth.
It hns long been n bollcf among tho
negroes that tho bito of ono of their
ruco who hos bluo gums is nbout as
deadly as tho blto of n mad dog or rat
tlesnake Fow whito pcoplo think this
is anything moro than mcro supersti
tion, nudwhilo instances nro recorded
iu tho newspapers every onco iu nwhilo
of deaths resulting from bites inflicted
by bhto gum negroes tho general opin
ion is that tho death was not caused by
tho bite, or clso that tho blood of tho
person bitten wus in such condition thnt
a wound of nlmost any character equal
ly sovcro would havo produced death.
It Is not questioned, howovcr, that tho
blto of a human being whether tho
bluo gum vnrloty or not may iu some
instances provo a Bevoro injury.
A caso is roportcd from tho Lott Store
neighborhood. A negro woman Ellen
Tonoy nbout CO years of ago, was bit
ten nbout a week ago by her daughter-in-law.
Tho wound wns ou tho llttlo
finger nnd was not at all dangorous in
appearance, but in a day or two tho
hand began to swell, nud tho swelling
was accompanied by great pain. It'soou'
pprcad to tho entire arm, which puffed
up to twlco Its normal bIzc. A physi
cian wns called in, nnd ho prescribed
such remedies ns tho caso scorned to do
maud, but lockjaw set in and lasted
about 20 hours. Finally tho swelling
began to abate, and tho old woman is
now considered ou a fair road to recov
er. Tho doctor learned thnt tho daughter-in-law
wns of tho blno gum vnrloty nnd
examined her mouth to sco if it differed

of tho bito of such n person being more
poisonous than that of nuy ouo clso, but
says ho is experimenting with tho virus
or saliva from this woman's mouth to
seo if thcro is any truth in tho belief of
tho negroes. Tho subject of his experi

Mr. Howard located his mosquito breed

joining marshy land near his residence.
Ho had previously established tho fact
by tests in a rainwnter barrol that
kcroseno oil is certain death to tho mos
When ho had loeuted tho wholesale
hatchery of mosquitoes, ho proceeded to
spray tho whole urea with crudo petro
leum. Tho area was about -1,000 square
feet, and 15 gallons of oil nt a cost of
$1.70 sufficed for tho work. This ho did
In March, when tho innocent mosquito
papooses wero still slumbering unhntch

after tho sprinkling thero remnincd a
scum of oil over tho area, nnd most of
tho larviu had been killed. During tho
summer following Mr. Howard 'a first

repented tho sprinkling, nnd during the
summer of that year ho had no uso for

A lingo monkey bolonglng to Ernst

escaped yesterday afternoon nnd gavo
activo employment to sovernl policemen
nnd a crowd of boys before it was enp
