The Horrors of Hasheesh.
The following is a vivid description
of the effects of that wonderful drug,
that is so extensively used -in Oriental
As I rose from my table I became
conscious of an agreeable state of
warmth and lightnes; I felt as if I
had taken Scotch whisky. The room
seemed larger than usual, and getting
larger and larger still j some skulls of
onimrfls on the walls acquired colossal
proportions, and the conviction entered
my mind that I had real'zcd an old
dream of living ir the midst of mon
sters of the oolitic period, and that I
had been awe-struck for years, ircmov
able, paralyzed, and with every faculty
benumbed, except the faculty of won
der, I caught sight of my watch hang
ing in front of eome papers on the
wall; it at once dispelled the illusion.
1 calmly looked at it, .and found it was
just twenty minutes since I had swal
lowed the hasheesh. Immediately the
watch expanded to vast dimensions,
and its ticking sounded through my
Jiead li,k,e .the pulsation of a world.
"I opened a drawer to fiud an emetic,
jbut the drawer had gone, and in its
place sat one of my antcdeluvian mon
fie?.8 jrrinning at me a real iethyosau
Jim, with a . red cap on its head, and
-with drum and pandean pipes. For
.about six weeks so at the time ' I do
tenained the peripd it played a mo
j)otonou3 tune, while I sat on the
.ground laughing and enjoying the idea
of my toes and fingers being elongated
into claws, when suddenly the thought
seized mo that I would destroy the ulu
sion bv an iffort. I dashed at the
monster, and my hand fell on the ban
die of the drawer. The dream was
48solved, and "I could clearly under
stand that the ticking of my watch and
the singing of the bird in the garden
?vero the real sounds which my fancy
had changed to the drum and. pipes of
my oolitic companion. I 'once more
looked at my watch, and though years
seemed to have elapsed since the spell
began, I found the real period to be
. jjnt twenty-five minutes.
The gnawing sensation of the stom
ach and contraction of the chest gave
way to a sense of pricking, most vio
leut in my fingers and tos, and yet,
though painful, this was all .pleasant j
and though 1 could collectedly observe
the objects about me, yet they would
transport themselves" to immeasurable
distances, and kept continually dilating
in size; and though I looked at my
watch, and s5w that only forff .niautes
had elapsed, yet there was a secret per
suasion in my mind that a period of at
least forty centuries had gone I by since
I brokeofl" a fragment of the cake and
committed myself to this sleep.
.... SPACE DITTO. I '
I could walk without difficult v, tho'
my legs were irninensoly long, and felt
as though they would be cramped, so
that I i?hou!d cry out. As f undressed
myself my clothes would flyj from me
far away into boundless spacej and be
come wandering stars, the buttons on
my vest glittered in the firmament like
Orion, but much nfore vast and splen
did. I did not dare louk out of the
window j I endeavored to control my
self, for I bciran to feci aj sense of
dread. I got into bed, the bed extend
ed ; as I hiy down at full length I my
self extended, and as soon ;as I shut
my eyes I felt, that I covered tho space
of tho whole earth. I had a senile of
indescribable pain all over me; my
skin seemed to move to and fro upon
my flesh, my head swelled to awful di
mensions, and I parted in two from
head to foot ; becmo two persons, each
throbbing, breathing hard, I sighing
loudly, and lost in a commixture of
ethereal yet agonizing colors and sound

one of the boys seated behind him in

aioe inches below his waist-band.
"God Almighty!" exclaimed Joe,
springing to his feet.
"That is correct," replied the teach
er ;'but you need not rise in answer

'Who died to save theworld?"
Again the pin was inserted, and Joe
cried out: Jesus Christ!" in a loud
