fcr Death of an Indiana
A dispatch from Newcastle, Ind.. sn
lotnctng th death of a Mr. Henry Bun
luf of that place add:
"Ho u the owner ' cf thi celebrated
Mu:idy madvtone,' which lins brought
lur.drsds of peront afflicted with various
'orma of Infection to this city for treat- j
uont, Mr. Bundy alwayt kept It about his
teraon, or la a safety deposit vault la a I
ocal bank." . I
This relates to ' a common sJperalitlon
vhluh bas existed for a long time and will .
rol ably continue to exit: much longer. '
Che so-called roadston la a calcareous or
4ony formation popularly bettered to have
power of overl'jig hydrophoo'.a by ab--4jvb!ng
the poioc when applied to th
round. The popular belle? U that It pes
hmi a 'spocl&o anViity for bydrophob
virus; that when applied to th bitten place
It adheres until the poison Is absorbed, and
then drops off, when. If placed In warm
milk or water. It give out the poison as
greenish yellow scum.
If any such stone exist, or even has ex
isted. It differs fundamentally from all
other stones In the alleged quality of pos
sessing a, specific aliraetlon for a particu
lar kind, of poison. As this ullegtd qual
ity Is entirely fore'gn to all natural stones,
those who posaess what they call mad
atoi.ea ascribe a mysterious origin to t.iein,
a having been foond ii; the stomach of
some animal in tho head of a snake, etc.,
Ths Bundy inadstone is said to have Detm
found In the stomach ot a wild deer and
to bavo been a valued possession of lbs
Buudy family tor more than luo yea s, etid
to have saved a great many perrons from
hydrophobia. Jt Is said the last owner ot
tho Bundy stone accumulated a fortune
by Its uso during a long term of years.
rpular traditions und folklore theories
are hard to put down, but as matter of
fact the so-called madstone has no recog
nition whatever In science. A publication
of the American Philosophical Society ot
1&4 says:
I "Among the various' Individuals In Penn
sylvania who profess ability In exorcisms
and charms, we occasionally And one who
Is reputed to possers a madstono. These
pebbles are of various slses, and appear
to have been selected on account of somo
peculiarity of color or form. A specimen
which had high reputation in the state
from which It had been brought was de
scribed by tho present writer as consisting
of a woru piece of white feldspar and pos
sessing none of the properties ot absorption
attributed to It." '
Scientists an classify all the atones al
leged to be madstones, but no scientist has
ever given the slightest credence to the
qualities claimed for them. Sir Walter
Scott In "The Talisman," gave his endorse
ment ot a certain alleged madstone, but
the Wizard of the North was far from be
ing scientist, and on this esse his asser
tions of virtue in the alleged madstone was
so Incredible . as to bo ridiculous. But
everything went with Sir Walter Scott
when he was writing a story. That Is
right, but facts and fiction are b!'.U es
sentially different, and the fact remains
that the so-called madstone has no recog
nition in science, nor is there any we'.l
authenticated tase of such a Mono having
shown the qualities claimed for It by lis
owners. Such claims are supported only
by chimney corner tradition, and common
credulity. Indianapolis News. '
Astonishing Kffert of au Irish Taao
in a. Colony of Hettle.
District Passenger Agent Paul a. Mills
paugli, of the I-ehlgh Valley railroad at
Ithaca, N. Y., , asserts that the company
for which be works has the most wonder
ful trainer of rattlesnakes in Its employ
that theta is In the United States.
"Why, up in the northern part of the
state." says alillspaugh, "on one of our'
branch lines Is a gravel bank extending
from the track to the rjeky wooded hill- j
side, half a mile away. The region there
about Is very wild, and therein abide many'
animals, among them rabbits, squirrel. I
and snakes, the latter In great abundance.
"It Is customary to keep at the bank '
two or three gravel engines and a steam
i hovel. We also have a man on guard '
to see that the machinery Is not molested,
particularly In the months the bank Is not )
used. But the place is so lonesome that
It's hard to keep watchmen there. We j
have had three or four In the last three .
years and they all quit. Last fall we got
hold of a happy-go-lucky Irishman, who Is
good company for himself, and we sent
him up to the wild country. After getting
: accustomed to his ' new job this son of
j Erin set to, work to establish friendly re
1 lations with the dumb denlsent of the
f-. v - .
woods and succeeded admirably.
"One day, while walking along a rocky
bluff, he almost stepped on a huge rattle
snake. The rattler was Inclined to show
fight, but " the Irishman, seeing a chance
for another friend, managed to trap It
and carry it home with him. For many
days the rattler kept' its dlHtance and the
watchman learned that friendship with a
snake was a difficult proposition.
"In time the snake became quiet and. I
later, absolutely tame. It would wrltho '
about the floor of the shanty and curl
Itself up at Its master's feet like a pet
poodle. Il would eat food out of the j
Irishman's bands and began to follow
him aVound. Soon there came six little
snakes and they, too, at first were pug
nacious. But mother snake told them It
was all right, and In the course ot time
they became as tame as the parent.
"The rattles of the snakes were ot dif
ferent sixes and the Irishman conceived a
musical scheme. He lined them all la a
low, with their talis up In the air. Soaking
one rattle after the other he discovered
that different sounds and tones cam
forth, and finally he shook them as sleigh
bells are used by musicians at summer
resorts. Fascinated" by the new Instrument
he played frequently and finally became
so piofklynt thut different tunes were pro
duced. "Home, Sweet Home' and "Auld
Lang Syne" were his favorites, and the
snakes didn't onject at all.
"Being a patriotic Irishman, once he
started on "St. Patrick s Day in the Morn
ing." Thle was too much for the snakes.
Mindful of St. Patrick, and his treatment
of their forebears many years ago, the
snakes rebelled, and beat It for the woods.
Now 'the Irlslftnan Is without his music,
and bis pet snakes have left forever. And
the wo'et of It all is thst the tones of
that Irfsh. melody per.etreted far Into the
woods, and not a rattler Is to be found
tor miles around." New York World.
