A Coon Swallowed by a Snake.
Seeing a corner iu your iapcr devoted
to uie nmusing and instructive version
of wonderful "snake stories," which havo
been liberally dealt with, I hnvo waited
several weeks for somo more able writer
to give nn account of the ntrange behav
ior of a monstrous serpent that met his
fate in tho presence of several gentlemen
from St. Louis, that are abundantly able
to do the Rubject justice, but as they con
tinue to keep silent, I unostentahoxtsly
contribute the following, knowing that
many of your readers will entertain
gnvte doubts of the authenticity of tho re
lort as w ell as the veracity of the author:
Not many months ago, the writer was

several gentlemen of quasi political rep- J
utation, who had beon sitting as tlio JLou
iiana Keturning Board, electiou ft anils,
etc. When our boat drew up to the
bank, a fow miles below Vicksburg, to
take ou wood, a number of pafjngerst I
among tho rest, ventured aslioro. While
engaged in drawing down a huge stream
er of Spanish moss, my attention was
called to a raccoon that was descending
a leaning tree a few yards away. Ap
proaching, I discovered a very largo
wrpent eagerly inspecting his coonship,
ami seemingly sjeculating on tho amount
of nitrogenous matter surrounded by tltat
Down came tho coon, and his serpen
tine foe swallowed him without a strug
gle. By this time a number of the party
were on the siot, and were preparing to
liberate the animal by opening the abdo
men of the snake, wheu to our surprise,
the coon emerged from the caudal ex
tremity of his living prison, and scram
bled for the tree ho liad recently occu
pied. In thus attempt ho was foiled. The
wily serpent seized lum, tail foremost,
and sent him bowling home, but not as
easy as before, for the coon resisted every
effort of deglutition, and in this ho was
aided bv the displacement of his f nr, for
tho snaka was swallowinghim against the
nap. Such beiug the case, we concluded
the coon would never find his way out,
via the alimentary, and we again prepar
ed to open the reptile. In this we were
mistaken, for, after a series of struggles,
starts, stops, blind switches, etc., he
struck the main track, and came backing
out, bewildered but not discouraged, anil
again set ont for the tree. But tho snake
arrested him head foremost this time, and
drawing his huge body into a dozen or
more lateral angles, curves and convolu
tions, hoping thereby to retain him, ho
slid him down his oesophagus like a worm
lozenge. "But all to late." Tho cun
ning coon had learned tho route, with all
its by-roads, blind paths, drifts, dips and
angles. Ho again emerged, only to be
seized by the hungry serpent, who now
stood guard at the door.
This was repeated until the serpent
was eafeebled by exertion, and the coon,
animated with success, came galloping
through like a steer in a cornfield,
sprang clear of his foe and regained the
tree. The snake was then killed. Corr.
A Doctor with too Maky Patients.
Professor Virchow, the celebrated Berlin
phvsiologist, went last spring to Asia
Minor for the sake of rest and recreation,
and passed a large part of his vacation at
Hissarlik, on tho invitation of Dr. SclUie
mann. On his arrival at Hissarlik he
found several of the workingmen engaged
.. i. TMivntinns bnfferinK from an
obBtiuato fever, and although it is long
since ho gave up practice, he took them
under treatment. Ho cured them, and
immediately his reputation as a magician
was established there; and as there were

An Incident or tho War.
Tho historian of "Tlio Lost CnuAo,"
Edward A. Pollnrd, doclnroa that tho
dotbttt of tho Confederate Army of
tho Vnlloy, near Winohostor, Vt.,
Sopt. 10, 18l5i, was tho beginning of
tho downfall of tho Contbdoraoy
Binco that victory, with tho opera
tions of tho following month In tho
Btuno quarter, destroyed tho military
powor of tho robollion in tho valloy,
olosod pormnucntly that broad
highway of Northern invasiou,
by which tho South had boon
ablo so long and so success
fully 10 divert tho war from tho
Interior of Virginia to its boundaries,
and effectually circumscribed tho
territory in that Stato. Tho battlo of
Winchester waa ouo of tho most
sanguinary and hotly contrasted bat
tics of tho war, Tho actual tiirhtinir
of tho day was confined to a spaco of
about fivo hours' titno after mid-day,
ana octoro mo mint result, over ouuu
of Sheridan's army wcro put hors lu
combat. Tho contest ended about six
o'clock, with tho rout of tho onemy,
vho lied iu tho greatest disorder to
Pishor's Hill. Tho Confedorato his
toriau is probably correct in tho
itnpot'tanco that he gives to this Un
ion victor, although 1 boliovo ho is
the only writer on either sido who
has clearly pointed out tho reasons
which made it bo disastrous to tho
of tho South. Tho report of
Gen. Grant (page 10) sets forth in a
few words, tho military situation in
tho Shcnanaoah Valloy just prior to
tho buttle. Ho says:
"Tho two armies lay in such a position
the enemy on tho west bank of the
Opequan creek, covering Winchester,
and our forces in frout of Borryvillo
that either could bring on n battle at any
time. Defeat to us would lay open to
the enemy Uie States of Maryland and
Pennsylvania for long distances before
another army could bo interposed to
check him. Under these circumstances,
I hesitated about allowing tho initiative
to Imj taken. Finally, tho use of the
Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad and the
Chesapeako and Ohio Canal, which wero
both obstructed by tho enemy, became
so indispensably necessary to us, and the
importance of rclioving Pennsylvania
and Maryland from continuously threat
ened invasion so groat, that I determined
Uie risk should be taken. But fearing
to telegraph the order for an attack with
out knowing moro than I did of General
Sheridan's feelings as to what would bo
tho probable result, I left City Point on
tho 15th of September to visit him at Ids
headquarters, to decide, after conference
with him, what should be dono. I met
him at Charleston n, and ho pointed out
so distinctly how each army lay, what he
could do tlio moment he was authorized;
and expressed such confidence of suc
cess, that I saw there wore but two words
of instruction necessary Go in!"
It is quite evident from nil this
that General Sheridan had very ex
act information as to tho numbers
and disposition of Early's army.
The facts as to how ho obtained this
information mako one of the moat in
teresting events of tho war; and
considering tho great importance of
the results that followed, the inci
dent deserves to be preserved iu a
reliable form. Somo attempts havo
been made to tell this story in tho
nowspapers, but always with an
effort to give a romantic gloss to tho
atfair which has detracted from tho
simple and interesting truth. Tlio
writer hereof passed through all tho
fortunes of that glorious day in one
of the Now York regiments, and
feeling desirous of learning tho
actual facts as to ho Sheridan
obtained his information, ho recently
wrote to tho person who has been
accredited with giving it a lady,
supposed to bo living at Winchester
requesting the facts and permission
to mako them public. Both woio
given a fow days later in a lotter
from Washington, and tho writer is
glad to bo able to furnish to tho
thousands who will feel deeply in
terested in tho matter, tho Btatomcnt
of Sheridan's informant in her own
words: "On tho 10th September,18G4,

Street Change! In Paris. j
Tho report of the Prefect of tho Soino
on tho subjeot of tlio proposed changes
in UionamoHof Uio streets in Pnrin, which
has just been publiMiod, provokes
numerous comments. M. llerold begins
by acknowledging that changes in
familiar nomenclature are undesirable
unless specially called for by public or
national consideration, lie proceeds
forthwith, hownvor. to liiako tho execu
tion provo tho rule, and either on his
own proposition, or as mouth-iiicco of
tho Municipal Council, lays before tho
Minister of tho Interior a table for ro-
lunusior oi mo interior a lame lor ri
classing highways and byways that Mi
stagger tho most knowing of Purisin
Jarvios. To begin with that promiuei
mn witn mat uromimml
landmark the Place de l'Ktoile, where
stands tho magnificent Arc do Triompho
(now crowdod bv Cook's tourists, one of
whom may bo heard contending -a ith his
fellows Unit this monument is really no
finer than tho marble arch on Oxford
street), twolvo avenues radiate from its
enter, tliree ol which tlio t'leiect ot the
Seine intends saoritleing, to wit tho Hoi
uo Komo, iiOAotiluno, anil Kcino llor
tense. In their places tho names of
Klebor, Marceau and IIoclio are to ap
pear. M. llerold expresses surpriso that
nouo of theso llepublican generals have
i been honored in this spot dedicated to
martial memorials, and can only account
for tho omission by tho fury of Imperi
alist worship. It seems high timo that
i thoy should havo their due now. Four
leading persons of the Second Enmiro
are to be relegated to oblivion Marshals
St. Arnrud and Magnani and MM. Ab
batucci.audBillault. The first because
ho owed his Marshal's staff to tho abom
inable crime of which ho was one of the
principal authors, viz., tho coup tl'ctul.
The second, because nobody desires tho
mainteuancs of his name. The third be
cause there is a doubt as to its paternity,
whether a General of the same name, or
tho Minister of Justice, the Abbattuci, of
the Second of December. Ah public
opinion identifies the street with the hit
ter, there can be no question of its lieing
spared. Billault ought to disappear, be
cause talent is uo extenuating circum
stance in a case of political apostney. In
their place wo are promised the nnmes
Lincoln, Beaurepairo, La Bootie, Chnr
ras aud Bouget do Lisle. Lincoln and
Washington are suggested by thoir
proximity to tho Chtunps-Elysoes, Ameri
can spirits, who are expected to feel
highly honored at the compliment.
Beaurepairo was the heroic defender of
Verdun in 179'J, and is intended to
eclipso Magnan. La Boetie, author of u
work called "Contreun," will, it is sup
posed, bo in suitable company near
Pierre Chandon, the obscure successor
ofDoMornv. The namo of the Picsi
dent of the llcpublic.ontlie '.20th of Janu
ary, the day of his accession, has been
suggested as appropriate to tho K-lluo
St. Arnaud, whero M. Gievy occupied an
apartment, but his well known modesty
forbado such a stroke of adulation. It
is to become Ituo do Volnoy, aftor tho
author of "Les ltuines." Charms is to
efface Clary, an obscure member of tho
Imperial family. The Municipal Coun
cil, in a suifdcn whim of classicism,
thought of Juvenal, but nobody cared
for the Roman satirist outside tlio Lux
embourg. The Hue de Bouillo will get
rid of an irritating souvenir of tho enemy
of tho Revolution for tho peaceful namo
of an artist of great talent. Tho Buo
Dauphine, emblem of monarchy, niiut
assume tho stylo of Buo do la Conven
tion. Tho Buo des Fouillants is con
demned because the late Prefect, M. Du
val, did not think fit to consult his Coun
cil before christening it. Tho present
ediles suggested in its stead tlio Marseil
laise, but M. Herald, for his own reason,
prefers the supposed composer of that
melody, Bouget do Lisle. Tho clerical
sounding Ituo des Carmens is to Iks re
tained, and tho priestly Buo do la Visita
tion will become Buo St. Simon, be
cause that aristocratic worshiper of kings
had his abodo there. "Is not this a tri
unphant answer to thoso who accuso us
of blind exclusieness?"asks tho Perfect.
Georges Sand is to perpetuate her fame
in the appropriate precincts of a theater
near Paul Louis Courier. Mario Louise
and Mario Louise Antoinette streets aro
to have "and" interposed botween tho
double name, according to the original
idea of their founders, who never thought
of these royal personages, but only of
their two daughters. "Where is tho

On a recent visit lo Dr. Keek's office,
wo thoro hod tho pleasure of mooting
Mrs. P. S. Fokor, daughter of Dr. Win.
Jolly, of Washington county, and now
tho wife of a well-known cltiren of Mo
Minnvillo. This lndy stated that for
three months she had been allHotod with
that terriblo disease, cancer ot tho womb.
After being treated by ouo physician
without receiving any benefit, and tho
cancer in the meantime rapidly enlarging
until it attained the sio of a man's list,
causing the most excruciating pains, shu
consulted several physicians of high
standing in tho profession, who, upon
examination of her coso pronounced it
incurable, and said that sho must die.
Bolioviug that her speedy demise was
certain sho accordingly nmdo tho neces
sary pro-mortuary arrangement of hor
affairs. But her father, who is also an
old physician, advised hor to place herself
under Dr. Keek's treatment, which, with
very slight hopes of recovery, sho con
sented to do. In about six weeks from
that time tho Dr. remoed the cancer
from her, root aud branch, restoring her
to husband, family and friends; and sho
expresses herself as being now in tho en
joyment of excellent health.
Through gratitude tothoDoctor.whoni
sho regards as tho savior of her life, and
for tho benetlt of thoso who aro now. or
may yet be, similarly alllicted, she dosttes
ino jiuiiucaiiiiii in iiiti lurvgwiig -ii ii
quest to which we cheerfully accede.
A soldier told a Curiri,-Joiminlint the
other day that at the battlo of Hull Bun
lufmet a fellow soldier who was very
much excited. "Wlmfs up?" "It's
getting hot up there." "How do you
know?" "Because a sutler's just been
killed." -Louisville Courier-Journal
