Scorpions and (Yntlpodt.
Frequently though the scorpion in
met with, yet a sting from one is rare.
An instance coming within my observe
lion was that of my chowkecdar, who
had been atung during the night while
aslettp on his mat in a corner of the
voranda where the reptile bad evidontly
dropped down from above. I was
awoke hjr a loud "bapre-bap" and tho
rory familiar "sapkatdyla'1 ("Father,
oh, father, a snake has bitten me!")
and, on goinw to the spot with a light,
we discovered the assailant to bo, not a
snake, but a scorpion, which was stand
ing motionless in the corner, still
angrily eurving Its tail a discovery
which afforded unspeakable relief to
the chowkecdar, who bad thought his
hut hours were come, and who now
with folded hands and upturned eyos
devoutly acknowledged his escape in
the exclamation: "Dohai Ram Ji, ian
buchgaia" ("Mercy, oh, Ram, my life
is spared!"). He had pressed upon the
reptilo, no doubt, while turning round,
and had been stung on the arm, which
rapidly swelled to a great size, accom
panied by pain so excessive as to cause
a feeling of falntness. With his mind,
however, relieved from the "worst," he
soon set about collecting herbs from
the compound and gardon, under the
application of hot mashos of which the
pain gradually subsided, and, along
with the swelling, disappeared in a
couple of days.
lieing curious to watch tho habits of
the scorpion, I placed ono under a
glass case along with a grasshopper
two inchet long, whose sharp-spiked
legs constituted its strong natur.d de
fense. For awhile the scorpion took
no notice of the wild leaps of his com
panion, though every now and again it
struck against him in rebounding from
the glass cover, but at length, irritated
by the continuance of these, it assumed
the offensive. After several unsuccess
ful clutches, he managed to seize with
his toes a leg of the grasshopper, which
he held in his jaws, while endeavoring
to transfix him with his sting, till he
succeeded in driving it through and
through him. The leaps of the grass
hopper now speedily grew feebler, and
soon ho lay motionless and dead. For
twenty-four hours the scorpion took no
further notice of his companion, and
then, pressed by hunger, he bethought
himself of him, and speedily devoured
Like the scorpion the centipede also
seems partial to grasshoppers, when it
can got thorn. An enormously magni
fied copy as it is of the lit t lo home
centipede, the sight of ono live or six
inches long, with ita multitude of pre
hensile feet all moving at once, ana its
long feelers steering its way, causes an
involttntarv creeping of tho flesh. Ouce
while reclining on a sofa perusing a
daily paper alitor mid-day breakfast,
preparatory to "turning in" for the
customary siesta, I was surprised by a
thumping against a newspaper which
was lying in a corner of the room, and
the continuance of the sound induced
me to jump up to ascertain the causo,
suspecting, of course, a snake and frog.
The raising of the paper disclosed a
centipede of about five Inches long,
holding In its jaws a large grasshopper,
which he was quietly hollowing out
without tho least regard to the frantic
kicks of his victim, which bad occa
sioned the noise against tho paper.
Nor did ho seem disposed to relinquish
(o choice a morsel, but allowed himself
to be turned over and over without even
relaxing his hold, and as the grass
hopper could not physically recoup his
loss I let the devourer continuo, till in
a quarter of an hour only the shell re
mained, and only then did tho dimin
ishing kicks of the grasshopper cease
On auotlieroccasion, in tho hot month
of May, during my morning ablu
tions, while raising the spongo to my
face, I was met by the near view of an
ugly puir of horns, followed by a head,
emerging from one of the pores. Nol
an instant too soon, I dropped it down
aain on the basin stand, upon which
the full length of a hideous centipede
gradually unwound itsolf.
