Deafness Cannot be Cured
By local applications, as they cannot

There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Iteafnese 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

interesting Scientific Facts About
Different - Effects of the Venom of Va
rious Reptiles Tne Deadly Ma
rine Snakes of the In
The following facts are given by a
snake scientist, a man, in fact, who
knows what he is talking about. Such
a one is Dr. Leonard Stejneger, in
charge of the reptilian department of
the national museum at Washington.
He said to a correspondent of the Bos
'"You do not admire snakes, I sup
pose? Well, it is aU a matter of taste.
There was Prof. Baird, former secre
tary of the Smithsonian institution.,
He swallowed the poison glands of the
rattlesnake one day, just to make sure
that the venom was harmless when
taken internally. The experiment was
a risky one; I would have advised
him against it. At all events, it is
well that he did not try the poison
glands of a cobra.
"You see," continued the doctor,
gently stroking with his finger the
head of a harmless living snake to give
the creature pleasure, "the poisons
are different. Each of them contains
two distinct active principles, one of
which produces local symptoms in case
of a bite, while the other has ten
dency to paralyze the nervous centers
of the victim. The latter preponder
ates in the cobra venom. A wound
made by the tooth of that species of
serpent is a mere puncture and causes
little swelling. , The person bitten is
killed by paralysis of the nerve centers.
The danger of the rattlesnake bite, on
the other hand, is from mortification
of the injured part, which may pro
ceed so far that the flesh actually petri
fies. Cobra poison in its natural state
is one of those fluids which are able to
pass through membranes, ff swallowed
it would be apt to go througli the
walls of the alimentary tract and get
into the circulation in that way.
'That is a python," he said, "'but it
is not a very large one. The species
attains a length of thirty feet and a
diameter of a foot. If I met such a
serpent would my scentific knowledge
give me a better chance in an encoun
ter with it? Well, perhaps. Notwith
standing mv enthusiasm as a collector,
I would certainly run away if Icoulil.-j
hupposmg that the animal seized me.
it is probable that I would keep my
wits better than the average citizen
would under such circumstances. The
only thing to do would lie to grasp the
creature by the throat and try to
strangle it. The other day I read a
statement to the effect that the proper
course to pursue in an emergency of
the kind was to take hold of the tail
of the snake and unwind the constrict
ing coils from that end. In my opinion
that would be -a poor plan to adopt
with a python, inasmuch as its tail is
the strongest part of it, leing made
powerful for holding on.
"The tooth of a rattlestake or cobra
is so sharp an instrument that beneath
a powerful microscope the point looks
perfecty smooth, whereas under the
same magnifier the point of a needle
appears rough. It often happens that
an ignorant person will remove the
poison fangs of a venomous serpent,
imagining that the operation renders
Che animal permanently harmless.
This mistake is apt to give rise to fatal
accidents. Within a few days the next
two teeth behind the extracted fangs
move forward and establish a connec
tion with the poison glands. Then the
snake is as dangerous as ever. Fakirs
in India understand a more effective
process. They cut out the poison
glands and apply hot irons, destroying
the parts entirely. Even the deadly
cobra may be rendered in that way as
innocuous as a kitten.
"My scientific ardor has never in
duced me to try the effects of snake
bites on my own person. But several
of the people attached to the staff of
the National Museum have been bit
ten. Mr. Schindler permitted a coral
snake, to bite him in order that he
might study the results. Our taxider
mist, Joseph Palmer, narrowly escaped
a nip from a rattlesnake, which was
torpid and came to life while he was
handling it. Dr. Schufeldt was bitten
by a Gila monster and suffered consid
erably in consequence. A man ought
always to be willing to sacrifice himself
for the sake of getting knowledge. A
certain person in the employ of the
Smithsonian institution, whose name I
will discreetly withhold, found a pea
nut in the stomach of a Peruvian mum
my and ate it. He wanted to see if any-
thing- would happen.
"Among the most venomous serpents
in the world are the marine snakes of
the Indian ocean. They are the dread
of fishermen, and it sometimes happens
that vessels are obliged to thread their
cables through barrels in order to pre
vent the reptiles from swarming on
board. .'Great numbers of them may
often be seen floating on the surface of
the water as if asleep. They are ex
ceedingly fierce, and will commonly at
tack human beings without provoca
tion. The so-called 'hoopsnake' is a fa
vorite snake of the newspapers. It is
said to take its tail in its mouth and
roll like a hoop. This belief may be
accounted for by the fact that the snake
has a way of accomplishing locomotion
by extending itself at full length,
bringing its hinder part into a loop and
springing forward, repeating the oper
ation with such rapidity that to the
eye it might -produce the effect of roll
Canada's Field Pea Crop.
The field pea is an important crop in
Canada, partly because it succeeded in
localities where corn cannot be grown
and partly because in many localities
the pea weevil, which infests peas
grown in the states, is not known. It
was long the habit of farmers near the
Canada line to send north for seed peas
free from the weevil. When Canada
seed peas were procured each spring
one or two' crops and sometimes-more
could be grown in -the states free from
bugs before the pest would reappear.
HIS FRESH OLIVES.
Bow a California Planter Amuses Himself
at the Expense of Innocent Travelers.
Eastern visitors to California are al
ways much interested in the'olive plan
tations which in recent years have be
come a feature of the most southerly
counties of. the state. The lovers of
the succulent fruit when pickled and
bottled for sale in the east and north
are always anxious to taste the olive
fresh and ripe. There is a popular im
pression that it is sweet and delicious,
but, like many other popular impres
sions, this is a delusion and a snare.
A few miles south of San Diego, says
the New York Herald, where the rail
road makesa junction with a small one
track road leading into Mexico, a large
planter has taken advantage of this de
lusion for his own amusement. On the
arrival of each train from the north
numerous travelers dismount to await
the starting of the train across the
Mexican border. For their benefit the
planter has nailed a box outside of his
fence just across the way from the rail
road station which he keeps filled with
nice, ripe olives. A placard invites vic
tims in these words:
: fine, fresh, ripe olives,
: free. :
: help yourself. :
'Of course there is a rush from the
station as soon as the box and its con
tents are discovered, and swarms of in
nocents seize the pretty fruit and dig
their teeth into it. Then there is a
combined howl and a great deal of ex
pectoration and disgust, for the delu
sive fruit are nearly as puckery as per
simmons. And the planter? Oh, he takes his
fun from a partly hidden summer house
within his grounds, where he occasion
ally seats himself to enjoy the specta
cle. It is a sure cure for the blues, he
THE SNAKE CATCHER.
Odd Occupation of a .Mississippi House
The selling of snakes to scientific
men, to manufacturers who use the
skins and t to museums is a business
which a man and his wife who live in a
Mississippi houseboat engage in. . The
strange couple were interviewed the
other day by the reporter for a New
Orleans paper. The man does most of
the snake catching, and, although -he
has been bitten several times, he con
siders the experience only a trifling in
cident of his trade. "A rattlesnake,
for instance, when pursued," he says,
"coils and is readj' to defend himself.
I flip a stone or small piece of stick at
him; he uncoils and starts off, but be
fore he can again coil I have him back
of the neck. No. I use no stick noth
ing but my bare hands. You may
laugh, too, when I tell you that our
snake lore teaches us not to hunt when
the wind is in the northwest. If we do
we find no snakes. The principal seasons
of the year for us are spring and. fall; the
snakes are then fat and produce lots
of oil." Of all the snakes in the United
States only three families, he says, can
be classed as deadly. "But," he adds,
'these families comprise about thirty
two species, distributed, as follows:
Rattlesnakes, seven; cotton-mouths,
eight; copperheads, seventeen, the two
latter being moccasins and dwellers in
the swamps and low places." The
snake catcher's method of treating
bites is as follows: "When bitten I im
mediately tie a band above the wound,
cutting the latter deeply in order to
cause it to bleed freely, and to reach
below the extremity pierced by the
fang. The cut is then sucked, or warm,
newly killed flesh is applied, and the
remedies are then rubbed into the
wound, neutralizing the poison."
LOST CARNOT'S HAT.
In the Excitement of the Moment Another
31 an Wore It Away.
A strange incident, by the way,
marked the last days spent by Mme.
Carnot in the palace which had been
her home for seven anxious years. She
desired to preserve as precious relics
for her family all the articles of dress
worn by her -husband at the moment
when he was struck down by the assas
sin's hand. These were carefully col
lected and sent to her, - hut the hat
alone was missing, and it was supposed
to have been lost in the confusion of
that fatal drive. ' It appears, however,
that among the first to offer medical
help as the victim lay on his deathbed
at the prefecture was Dr. Girard, the
mayor of Charbonnieres.
When other surgeons took charge of
the case this gentleman discreetly
withdrew and was looking for his hat,
whereupon Col. Chamoin handed one to
him. He put it on and went home,
thinking it was his own.TEor it fitted
him exactly. Not until some days later
he cast his eyes on this article of head
gear as it hung in his hall, examined it
more closely and found it marked in
side with a "C" did he recognize his
mistake. The lost hat was forthwith
restored and Mme. Carnot acknowl
edged its receipt in a letter expressing
her heartfelt thanks.
A Notable Event.'
When Queen Victoria travels, an en
gine is carefully selected, in charge of
an experienced engineer and fireman.
A pilot engine always precedes the
royal train, and no train is allowed to
cross the main line for half an hour be
fore the time for the queen to pass.
The gates at all grade crossings are
locked, all shifting operations are sus
pended and an army of track-walkers
are on duty to remqye any obstruction
from the line. . In addition to all this,
a telegram is sent from every station
heralding her -approach. Altogether,
it must be quite an events when her
majesty takes a trip, but the general
traveling public cannot enjoy it.
Continents Named for Women.
Three great divisions of the globe
took their names from feminine orig
inals Asia from a nymph of that
name, Europe from Europa, the daugh
ter of Agenos, and Africa from Libya,
or Aphrica, the daughter of Epaphus.
And the - fourth quarter, America,
though named for a man, has been
given a feminine ending. '
