These details finished, ten keepers dragged the snake out of his den. The big reptile wriggled and fought with .inconceivable agility and strength," considering the length of his fast. ...At length 25 feet oi shake was stretch out at full length upon the floor of. the feeding room. Eight men held Mr. Python , down and two rammed the entire. meal of rabbits into the ; snake's stomach and'withdrew the pole. ; The snake less quarrelsome, than before: wa9 again .

Lived on Hay, Birk and Decayed Horseflesh Come Forth Like . Men from the D. ai 0:her News. Lens, France,. Mirah 30. The disaster at the Courriers coal mines had a startling sequal today, when thirteen miners were taken out alive after having- endured unspeakable horrors during the 2O . days of en tombment. The story x of the sur vivors, so far as it has beeatold, discloses that they lived for many days on putrid horse-meat, amid total darkness and the stench of scores of , decaying corpses. The presence of human flesh would speedily have forced the starving men to resort to the last desperate extremity if they had not' been re cued,..;: : -. ; - ' The survivors were sturdy young men from 17 to 25 years of age, ex cept their leader, Henri Nemy, who is 38 years of age. All show the terrible effects of their experiences, being emaciated and blinded. The Doctors enforced quiet upon them, fearing the results of fever and poisoning from their having ea'en decayed horseflesh J There - were touching scenes as wives and mothers greeted those whom they had long given up as dead. Crowds besieged the hospit als to which the men were taken, cheering the survivors and impre cating the ineffective nature of the salvage work that followed imme diately after the disaster. The rescue of these I3 men re vived hope in many families that others are alive and the relatives of those whose bodies have not been recovered clamorously demanded that efforts be - redoubled to bring out any possible survivors.' There is a report that in addition to the:I3 men who were brought up out of the mine tod y, five others came with them almost to the bot tom of the pit, but were unable to come further on accoQu. af exhaustion- v:- -::n: -r.yr - - ' The total number' of men miss ing after the catastrophe was 1212. The bodies recovered approximate ly number 5OO and there are still unaccounted for approximately The mine officiats Were deeply af fected as the. weeping survivors were taken to a hospital. .They all asked for news of relatives and friends, and wished to go home immediately. The doctors, however, prevented them with difficulty from so doing. It is Eald that others of the en tombed miners are alive and about to be brought out, their signals having been heard. . . One of the men rescued today, a man named Nemey, eaid that for the first eight days the party eight the bark off the timb rsof the mine. Later they found the decompos ed body of a horse, which they cut up and ate with hay. The surviv ors brought up portions of decom posed horsemeatN When cut off by explosion the miners took refuge in a stable where the mules were kept. They enb sisfed for days on the lunches that their dead comrades took down on the day of the disastr aad had 1 ft in the stables. Wnen all these lunches were exhausted, the m?n lived on the grain and water kept for the livestock. When taken out the men looked more like ghosts than human be ings.' Pale and emaciated, color less, blinking at the unwonted light of day, the rescued indeed were pi -iable objects.. They were immedi ately surrounded by a throng of friends and relatives who showered their congratulations upon them. All were taken to a hospital where they will be treated until able to re turn to their homes. The men were found in a remote part of ths mine which had not teen affected by the fire which raged for two weeks in the mine following the explosion. They hsd lived 20 days with no light and but little air. With one exception tb men were well, but could not have lived long. Boston, April 2. So strange an effrct has a rare wood brought from the Philippines to a Cambridge fur niture factory had on ths employes, that 26 have been made iil. Bv special order 15,ooo feet of wood was imported to be made into fur niture for a New York man to uee in bis house at Buffalo. The sick workmen had inhaled dust from this wood or their hands had come into contaci with it. The effect was asthmatic and a very irritating rash broke out on the arms or wherever there was perspiration. The wood is known as tonquin. It is dark and rsembles English oak, having nearly the same grain, full of beautiful figures which spar kle in places like silver when placed under strong light. Employes were affected in every room except the finishing room and the wood caused so much trouble that the firm re fused to have any more of it in the factory.
