POISONING IN INDIA.
A Popular Method of Disposing or Ob
Although, the English government
keeps strict surveillance over' its sub
jects in India, it does not seem able to
stop the wholesale poisonings going on
among the natives there every year,
says the Pittsburgh Dispatch. It
seems innate in the native Hindu to
poison if he desires to get rid of some
one who is in his way. The poison,
which the natives use produce about
the same symptoms as the poison of a
snaWtf Th victim dips Rurldfnlv and
is cremated within an hour or. two
after death, so there is no opportunit3r
of investigating the cause. The
poisoner, to further deceive, usually
makes a cut in the leg "or arm with a
knife, such as the fangs of the snake
would make, so that it is difficult to
distinguish a victim of the snake from
the victim of the poisoner. There are
thousands of deaths put on the gov
ernment registers every year that are
attributed to the bites of snakes. I'll
venture to say that but a small per
centage of these are from that cause.
In traveling through India it is rarely
that a snake will attack you, for as
soon as it hears anyone approaching it
usually glides away. Europeans are
seldom bitten, on account of the boots
and leggings they wear, but the na
tives, who go barefooted, occasionally
step upon a reptile which strikes them
and death results in a few hours. The
English government offers sixpence a
head for every poisonous snake killed
India. I know of some places where
natives went into the business of
breeding cobras for the purpose of get
ting this bounty and made a good busi
ness out of it. In Lower Bengal,
where snakes are held to be sacred,
you find them in profusion, for it is
considered sacrilege to kill them. I
remember a house in which I resided
in that district in which it was usual
to kill one or two cobras a day. Snakes
had got between the walls of sun
dried brick, and once in awhile would
steal out of a hole like a rat.
MICROBES CARRIED BY BULLETS
Taken from Infeetocl Klanncl Through
Which the Projectile Was Fired.
1 Some interesting experiments were
lately made by Dr. Mesmer, says the
London News, by way of solving the
question whether or not rifle bullets
are liable to carry infection with them
in their course of entry into the body.
He made his trial with bullets which
had been infected with germs of a
particular kind, and the infected bul
lets were shot into tin boxes from dis
tances varying from two hundred and
twenty-live to two hundred and fifty
meie.-s a meter being nearly three
f.et three and three-quarter inches.
T r.5(V. the 1oxis was placed gelatine
(ettmu in a sterilized or germless con
dition, so that whatever germ develop
ments were found in the peptone
' v .vliicti is a great growing medium for
microbes) would be presumed to have
fome from the bullets. The tracks of
".' ' r;;'ts through the gelatine were
duly scrutinized, with the result that
ju e'acL ease germ growth took place
corresponding to the particular mi
crobes with which the bullets had been
respectively infected. In another se
ries of investigations the bullets were
made to. pass through infected flannel
before penetrating the gelatine, the
bullets being of the ordinary . kind.
Here, again, microbic growths ap
peared in the gelatine, showing that
the flannel had yielded up its microbes
to the bullets as they traversed it. If
noninfected and ordinary bullets were
used the gelatine developed only the
ordinary germ life, such as the air con
tains. The bullet is, therefore, a germ
carrier of a very decided kind, and it is
also clear that if clothing is penetrated
by a bullet prior to its entrance into the
tissues the missile will be liable to
carry into the wound it makes the bac
teria resident on the clothes.

SMUGGLING GOODS TO MEXICO.
In New York for Transportation
Across the Texas Border.
Passing through Hudson street re
cently with a friend, says a New York
Herald writer, I chanced to pass the
establishment of a firm of "folders and
repackers" of dry goods. Before the
door were a hundred or more little
bales of goods, bearing odd markings,
but showing" that they were destined
for a firm in Texas, doing business in a
town near the Mexican line.
"Do you know." asked my compan
ion, "why those goods are put up in
such small packages?" ,
Upon replying in the negative' he
continued: "They are to be smuggled
across the Mexican line. The goods
arc purchased in their original pack
ages and delivered here. The wooden
boxes are discarded and the goods
subjected to hydraulic pressure and
baled. Each bale contains about thirty
pieces or half the number of an ordin
arj' dry goods case.
"The goods ".are then shipped to
Texas, and all marks removed. When
all is arranged some night the little
bales are slung across the backs of
mnles, two bales to each animal, and
with an armed escort the train pro
ceeds over the border to some dis
tributing point in Mexico, where the
goods are sold to Mexican traders at a
"Smuggling in this manner is quite
extensively carried on-between this
country and Mexico, the United States
getting in return for its dry goods,
which are the most easily handled,
cheap Mexican coffee and cigars. Of
course there is a suspicion that the il
licit traffic is known to the custom
officers of both countries and connived
at, but that would be a hard matter to
TALK THE "JARGON."
Tongues That German-Basso-Po
lish Immigrants Speak.
"He talks the jargon" is a remark
often made by a despairing interpreter
when he attempts to translate the lan
guage of an east side witness, says the
Philadelphia Press. "The jargon" is a
recognized term for a dialect so com
mon that it is distinguished by the
definite article from all the other
numerous jargons known in the city.
It is spoken by Hebrews from Poland
and Russia. It Consists mainly of an
imperfect German, with occasional
Hebrew or Polish words. Those who
have studied its history say that those
who speak it are descended from He
brews who formerly lived in Germany,
and spoke the German tongue.
When they migrated to Poland they
preserved among themselves, as far as
possible, the German language. It be
came somewhat corrupted, but in the
main was the language spoken by
those who originally left Germany.
The language of Germany itself be
came changed in time, and now there
is considerable difference between the
words spoken by the Polish descends
ants of the German Hebrew and those
spoken by educated Germans.
The difference is said to be slight
when a few corruptions of the original
tongue are known. Educated Ger
mans, however, cannot understand at
first the peculiar Polish-Hebrew style.
It is now very common in many parts
of the great east side, and shopkeep
ers there have to learn, not only Ger
man, but also "the jargon" of the im
migrants from Poland and Russia, .
FIRST OF HOOFED ANIMALS.
Supposed to Have Lived on Western Prai
ries 600,000 Tears Ago.
In the rooms of Prof. E. D. Cope, at
Philadelphia, the person fortunate
enough to gain admission, says the St.
Louis Republic, may see the creature
which all naturalists are unanimous in
pronouncing the first representative
of the hoofed-animal species. The an
imal is not alive, neither is it entire so
far as flesh and blood are concerned,
but to the paleontologist, who cares
only for the fossiled bones, the speci
men is perfect. It is not larger than
a yearling calf, and not nearly so tall,
and was found in the Wind river coun
try in Wyoming. Prof. Cope named it
Thenacodus. primcevus when it was
first discovered, giving it as his opin
ion that it was akin to a specimen
which was found several years ago in
France (the paleotherium), and which
gave Cuvier and the other naturalists
so much trouble to classify. At the
time of the discovery of the French
specimen the savants of Europe decided
that it was the ancestor of "hoofed
critters," but the Wind river fossil,
which is easily distinguished as being
a type of the same, is believed to be
much more ancient. Cope's curiosity
.was found in rocks belonging to the
eocene period and the time when it
grazed on the western prairies has been
placed as far back as five hundred
thousand years. Every bona is perfect
and in place, and the specimen could
not be purchased for ten thousand dol
lars. A Profitable Dream
Tunis must be a capital place for
those who live and thrive on the credul
ity of their fellowmen. It is said that
a lady there recently announced that
she had a dream, which she considered
as a Divine revelation, that whoever
drank the water of her cistern would
not be liable to take the cholera, an d
she offered to furnish the water at a
penny a drink. The people thronged
to taste- the water, and in two days
more than twenty thousand persons
had paid their pennies, and imagined
that they had obtained immunity from
the dread disease.
Clerical Presence of Mind.
An English paper tells a good story
of clerical presence of mind. A curate
who had entered the pulpit provided
with one of the late Rev. Charles Brad
ley's most recent homilies, was for a
moment horror-struck at the sight of
Rev. Charles Bradley himself in a pew
beneath nun. Immediately, however,
he recovered enough self-possession to
be able to say: "The beautiful sermon
I'm about to preach is by Rev. Charles
Bradley, who I'm. glad to see in good
health among us assembled here."
