LEGENDS OF MONSTERS.
a Possible Cause or the Tales That Sur
vive In English. Folk Lore.
Every reader of north-country lore
and legend, says an English' paper, is
familiar with, the stories of monstrous
"worms," "drapfons," "fiery flying ser
pents" and the like, which are said to
have located themselves in various dis
tricts. Sexhow, .under the shadow of
the Cleveland Hills, Teesgirt, Stock
burn and Lambton upon the Wear are
instances. Men have laughed at the
stories, palling them "old wives' tales,"
but forgetting that even these may
nay, must have had, somewhere and
sometime, some foundation in fact.
The old stories of elves and fairies,
which amused, and frightened children
in bygone days, may well, as King-sley
points out, have had their origin in
memories of the feeble folk of the
stone age who chipped flints into rude
knives and. arrowheads, and who lin
gered in out-of-the-way caves, it may
be, long after the bulk of them had
been slain or driven away into the far
north by stronger and bettef armed
tribes. So the stories of these terrible
monsters may not be so foolish as they
appear. Take, for instance, the legend
of the Stockburn worm. The name of
the man who slew it is preserved, and
is that of a well-known north-country
family. His tomb is pointed put in the
ruined church . of Stockburn, where
also he lay in effigy with the "worm"
at his feet until, the sacred edifice fall-:
ing into decay, the monument was re
moved to- Stockburn' hall adjacent.
There, too, is preserved the falchion- or
sword with wicrl the monster was
slain, and which was shown to every
fresh bishop of Durham as he entered
his" diocese a custom which only
ceased in the days of Van Mildret, -the
last of the prince 'bishops. In a field
close by the stone round which the
"worm" coiled itself is still to be seen.
This story, so circumstantial in its de
tails, can hardly be entirely fabulous.
How then did it rise? "The ichthyo
saurus and plesipsaurus," says S.
Langv "gave Tennyson the 'dragons of
the prime.'.? May not somodescendant
pf these creatures have lingered in re
mote, places, one here and another
there, even in historic times? ...

HE WILL RETIRE ABOUT EASTER
Will Continue to Represent . Midlo
thian in the House Earl Spencer
London, Feb. 27. The Evening News
of Edinburgh announces on what it calls
reliable authority that Gladstone has
resigned as premier, but will retain a
plage in the cabinet and continue to rep
resent Midlothian. Though following
many contradicted rumors regarding the
intentions of the great statesman, it
meets a wide belief in well-informed
circles and is causing the greatest ex
citement and hurried exchange of tele
grams between the leaders and their in.
tiuaate advisers. That he has actually
tendered his resignation is not counted
on so much as that he is expected to
take such action within the present
week. The reasons assigned are a cata
ract is forming in one eye, which must
soon be operated on, and the criticisms
of the liberal papers on him ' for not
forcing the fight on the house of lords.
To the Associated' Press reporter Glad
stone s private secretary would not deny
the truth of the published rumor, re
stricting himself to the statement that
it was unauthorized. '
The News Confirmed.
London, Feb. 27. The Evening News
this afternoon says the premiership has
been tendered to Lord Eosebery, who
declined. Later it was offered Earl
Spencer, first lord of the admiralty, who
accepted. It adds that Gladstone's
resignation goes into effect at Easter.
Atorell Held to Answer.
Feesno, Feb. 27. Ed Morell, Evans'
partner, was held to answer before the
superior court yesterday for assisting
Evans to escape! Another charge of
highway robbery was then filed against
him. Several witnesses have been sum
moned, but only Sheriff Scott and Jailer
Ben Scott were examined. The sheriff
and jailer told the fitory of - Evans' es
cape andj Morell's connection with it.
Justice Austin asked "Morell if he had
any witnesses to call, and on receiving a
negative reply,. held him to answer be
fore the superior cburt with bonds at
$5,000. The court immediately took up
another complaint that had been
brought against the prisoner, charging
him with highway robbery in stealing
Cochran's horse and cart. The com
plaint was read to Morell, who said he
had nothing to say. His bail, on 'this
charge was . put at $5,000 also. This
makes the total amount of his bail $25,
000. ' ' " -
Queen 1.11 was Drunk.
Washington, Feb. 27. In the recent
investigation of Hawaiian affairs by the
senate committee, the most racy testi
mony was that of Lieutenant Young, of
A " . -.' HOYAL BAKING POWDER CO., 106 WALL ST., NEW-YOBX. ' . H',.r
the Boston. In it he gives a description
of the ceremopies that attend a propaga
tion of the Hawaiian parliament by the
queen. He likens the ceremonies to a
circus, and declares that after the propa
gation, when be entered the reception
room, to pay his respects to the queen,
in his official capacity, that the lady was
drunk. ."' ' " . ' ' .
Question of Naval Defenses.
Washington,' D. C, Feb. 27. The
comparative easiness with- which the
Brazilian insurgent ship Aquidaban
moves ' in and out of the harbor of Rio,
under the galling fire of the forts, has
set congressmen to thinking, demon
strating, as it does, the uselessness of
land fortifications to prevent warships
from going in or out of a harbor, at
pleasure. Cong. Livingstone said today
he believed that . in case of war our
main reliance would be on naval vessels
of the Miantonomoh type, which could
be readily moved about a harbor and
would be able- to fight on even terms
with any warships.
Bl and Will Force a vote.
Washington, Feb.. 27. Fithian, of
Illinois, one of Bland's active lieuten
ants, says positively that the silver men
will block all legislation, including the
appropriation "bills, until the . B'.aad
seigniorage bill .is brought to a vote.
On Trial: . ,
That's a good way to buy a -medicine,
but its a pretty hard condition under
which to tell it. Perhaps you've noticed
that the ordinary hit or miss medicine
doesn't attempt it. '
The only remedy of its kind so re
markable in its effects that it can be
sold on this plan is Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. As -a blood-cleanser
strength-restorer, and flesh-builder,
there's nothing like it known to medical
science. In every, disease where the
fault is in the liver or the blood, as
Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Biliousness, and
the most stubborn Skin, Scalp, and
Scrofulous affections, it is guaranteed in
every case to benefit or cure, or you have
your money back.
To every sufferer from Catarrh, no
matter bow bad the case or of bow long
standing; the proprietors of Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy say this : "If we can't
cure it, perfectly and permanently, we'll
pay you $500 in cash." Sold by all

The Highest Inhabited Spots. -
The two villages' which have the
greatest elevation above the level of
the sea, or, in other words, the two
highest inhabited spots on earth, are
Arevichiary and Muccapata, mining
camps in the Andes. Each of these
places has an average of 200 inhabitants
the year round. The elevation of -Arevichiary
is exactly 17,050 feet; that of
Muccapata, 16,153. The observations
which established these heights were
taken by Arthur Pearce, the engineer,
and are reliable.
The experience of Geo. A. Apgar, of
German Valley, N. J., is well worth re
membering. . He was troubled - with
chronic diarrhoea and doctored for five
months and was treated, by four "differ
ent doctors without benefit. He then
began using Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy, of which one
bottle effected a complete cure.' It is

A. Trick of the French Shawl Trade. .
The introduction of the. perfume
called patchouly was caused by the de
sire of French shawlmakers to deceive -their
customers. -; When shawls were,
first brought from India they were per
fumed with patchouly, an extract of
an Indian plant. The French soon
learned to imitate the shawls to. per
fection, but the ' patchouly bothered
them, as they could find ; no substitute "
for it, and this fact was used as the
surest means of distinguishing-, the
genuine India shawls from the French
counterfeit. At last somebody discov
ered the secret and brought a quantity
of patchouly to France. For a time the
discoverers kept' the matter to them
selves and reaped a harvest, then some
one . gave away the secret. The per
fume soon became popular and has '
never since passed completely out of
use, though several times superseded
temporarily by other perfumes. . . . "
