The Dyiso Hkndkicks. Thore is a
quiet laugh at the expense of big doc
tory in Indianapolis. Ex-seuator Hen
dricks was recoutly reported critically
ill of erysipelas, with gangrenous symp
toms, certain, tho great doctors of In
dianapolis and Louisville said, to carry
hira to a speedy death. The senator
prepared for his fate calmly, and resign
edly waited for tho grim messenger. But
he did not proceed to dio. Tho day to
which the scientific doctors limited his
life, a blunt old Democratic friend, who
was a couutry practitioner, came to pay
his distinguished friend a farewell visit.
Ho looked at the erysipelas of the dying
statesman, and suddenly said, with an
expressive gruut. "Nothing but bile,
by G -d!" Tho next day the statesman
was at the polls voting the Democratic
ticket. Tho distinguished scieutifio
physicians are very quiet on the subject.
Y have the docTumonts for this story.
As to tho rapid formation of mineral
veins, Dr. Cloitman, of Iserlohn, makes
the following record: Two yeas ago the
bottom of a stuble pit was rammed hard
with common clay containing iron. It
had since served for storinn dung, water
being thrown in occasionally to prevent
overheating. It haviug become neces
sary to have the pit somii where else, it
was found that the clay had lost all color
and was divided into numerous fissures,
from 1-23 to 18 Inch in width, filled
irou ryrites. The iron oxide of the cloy
was changed0 by the organic matter
placed upon it, and the water containing
J sulphate ot ammonia, into sulphate ot
I irou. which deposited itself in the fissures.
