Bat Fe of Them Are Polionou and
Those Can Be Ulatlrjgulshed-
All snakes are naturally vicious,but
they are not all poisonous, ays the De
troit Free Press. None of the larger,
varieties are poisonous, and you canal
ways f tell a poisonous snake by the
formation of his head, -which is shaped
round. Back of the eyes there is a high
lump rising from inside the head. The
harmless snake has a long head, and it
kills by crushing', while a poisonous
snake darts at you.. The anacondas
hardly, ever bite, and in Brazil it is quite
common for a householder to keep a
few of them around his residence for
the purpose of . killing the rats, which
are a great pest in that part 'of the
world. '. '"- 'v". . .. v v-,:-
Among the poisonous snakes there is
the variety, known as tho coral, which
is found in Venezuela. Anyone bitten
by a coral snake dies in the most horri
ble agony, his blood bursting oroozing
out through the pores of the skin. . Any
snake that measures over seven or eight
feet is not poisonous; in fact, I do not
know any that grow over six feet long.
The rattlesnake is the largest poison
ous snake we . have - in this country.
Then there are .the deaf adder the
black water snakev the ' moccasin.
These are about the only 'poisonous
snakes we have in the United States. -
The men who call themselves "snake
charmers" do not handle poisonous
snakes. If they have a rattlesnake they
extract his fangs, and in that way ren
der him perfectly harmless. This oper
ation is easily performed, by means of a
silk handkerchief, which is waved in
front of the snake, who snaps at it
viciously, "when the handkerchief is
suddenly pulled ' away, bringing the
fangs with it. Or you can cut the artery
that feeds the poison bag and thus de
stroy the source of supply. This is a
rather difficult operation, however, al
though I have often had occasion to
perform it on rattlesnakes. Something,
generally a piece of cork, is put . in the
snake's mouth to keep it open; the
teeth of the reptile become imbedded in
the cork, and you have a chance to cut
the artery. Taking the teeth out of a
rattlesnake is like pulling feathers out
of a bird; they will form again.
ROUGH ON THE TENANTS.
This Exacting landlord Had Queer Ideas
or His Own.
The owner some dozen years ago of a
rather dilapidated dwelling in the Rue
Neuve des Mathurins a fussy little man
being informed that an applicant for
his vacant third floor had presented
himself, says .Temple Bar, desired him
to be shown up, in order that he might
treat with him in person.
. "Monsieur," said he, when the terms
had been discussed and agreed to,
"there arc ' two. conditions on which I
insist as a sine qua non."
"Indeed!, Pray, what are they?" ' '
"You shall hear. First, it is. expressly
stipulated in my house that the grand
staircase shall, be exclusively reserved
for distinguished visitors.' Common
people, such as artists and literary men,
can only be admitted by the back
stairs." - ..
'.'By all means," assented the appli
cant. ''I am a literary man myself, but
that doesn't in the least signify. What
is the second condition?" '
"That my lodgers, either on going
out or coming in, make a point of oc
casionally stopping for a little chat
with my concierge, who is a sort of con
nection of mine, and not absolutely
illiterate, I assure you. It flatters the
poor fellow" .
"So I should imagine," dryly replied
the other, making an effort to preserve
his gravity; "we all have our little
weaknesses and no one more than my
self. Tenez, whenever I come across
an idiot who wastes my time with in
tolerable absurdities I feel an irresis
tible impulse exactly as I have at this
moment to open the window and
pitch him out!" "
" lief ore the astonished proprietor.had
recovered from his stupor his visitor
had disappeared, and, for all I know to
the contrary, the third floor in the Rue
Neuve des Mathurins may have - re
mained unlet to the present day.

The oldest man in the world is "a citi
zen of Bogota, in the Republic of San
Salvador. This new Methuselah, . says
the Chicago. Tribune, declares that he is
one hundred and eighty- years old, and
it would seem he flatters himself, for his
neighbors give the assurance that he ,if
older than he says he is. , .
He 'is a half-breed named Michael
Solis, whose existence was revealed ta
Dr. Louis Hernandez by one' of the old
est plasters in the locality, who as e
child knew Solis as a centenarian. ;Thej
have found in 1713 his signature among
those of persons who contributed to th
building of a Franciscan convent which
exists near San Sebastian. His skin is
like parchment, his long hair- of tht
whiteness of snow envelops his heac"
like u turban, and his look is so keer
that it made a disagreeable impressior
on the doctor. '
Interrogated by iho doctor, he an
swered eomplaisantly tliat his great age
was due to" his regular mode of living,
and to his never giving up to any ex
cess of any sort whatever. ' .
"I never eat but once a day," said he
"but I never use any but the strongest
and most nourishing foods.- My me ah
last a half hour, for I believe it is im
possible to eat more in that time thar
the body can digest in twcnty-foui
hours. " I fast tho first and fifteenth daj
of each month, and on those days 1
drink as much water as I can bear. J
always let my food become cold before
I touch it. It is. to these things that
attribute my great age."
Deafness Cannot he Cured
By local applications, as they cannot
reach' the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only' one way to enre Deafness,
and that , is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube 'restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catanh
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Care. Send for circulars, free.

Americans get credit for a great dea.
of slang which originates on the othei
side of the .Atlantic. The word "bum
mer," for instance, is not an American,
but an English expression, being found
in the - market laws of two hundred
years ago, where it was used to desig
nate a retail dealer in fish who peddled
-his goods outside the market and with
out a license. A transition from an un
licensed peddler to a disreputable loafer
was one which came easily and natural
ly in the course of time.

Pathetic Sketch of a Chance Interview
with Robert Browning. .
The love between Robert Crowning
and his wife was ideal, in the true
sense of that much-abused word. - And
her death, after a few short years of
married life, left the poet inconsolable.
To him she remained always the dearest
and most lovely of created beings, and
her gift seemed to him far greater than
his own. A writer in the Christian
Union gives the following pathetic
sketch of a chance interview with him:
I was traveling in Italy. There were
few tourists in my compartment, and
all were absorbed in books or revery,
until the close of the long, tiresome
day. Then it was that the elderly
j gentleman who had sat by my side,
; without moving his eyes from the land
j scape, made a comment that invited
I conversation. .
"You are fond of poetry?" he asked,
when something in the shifting splen
i dor of the Italian skies evoked from me
a Byron couplet. " -
. ."Oh, yes," I responded. ."I love poets
and poetry." . . .-. . .. . ,
The old gentleman grew young, and
never shall I forget the wonderful
thought and imagery that flowed in a
continuous stream from his lips.
"Who are your favorite poets?"-he
asked, abruptly. - .. :
; I named them, and, without further
comment, quoted my favorite poem, one
of Mrs." Browning's. t When I had fin
ished, my companion resumed his post
by the window, and did not degn to no
tice me again. I was much discomfited."
Had I given offense? Before reaching
our destination ventured to say:
"I suspect, sir, that you do not like
Mr a. Browning's poetry." .
" The dark eyes of the stranger turned
pitifully - upon ' me, and he said:
"Madam, that Bonnet is the sweetest,
and its singer the most precious gift
life has given me. She was my wife."
