TWO DEADLY REPTILES.
The Kalrelt Kite la Nura Deatli, and the
Cobra' A 1 moat Sure.
A friend of mlrm In Bengal. In tho
military aorvice, who was a bachelor,
ono day Invited a friend to dinner with
him. The cook house was, as moat
cook houses are in India, about fifty
yard from the house. The friend ar
rlvod and they talked. Dinner time
came, but no request to come to din
ner. Half an hour passed and my
friend said: Well, I wonder what's
th matter with the beastly cook. He'i
quite late." They talked on until an
hour had passed- Then my friend said:
"Well, we'll just go out and see." And
what do you think they aw? Why,
above the door, with his head swine
lag from side to side through the tran
som and seesawing back and forth, was
a Gigantic cobra. The cooks inside
were very much afraid and would not
venture out, of course. The guest
raised a shotgun and killed the poi
sonous cobra, though it was hard on the
house. They thought themselves lucky,
though, as may be supposed.
Jiobody ever recovers from a bito of
the kaireit, and it is rare that any body
ever got over the bite of the cobra. A
doctor in the army there had one that
he had half tamed as a monstrous cu
riosity. He was exhibiting it one day
to some friends when it bit him on the
finger. He was an expert and his rem
edies were right at hand. lie instant
ly applied them and got over it; but if
he had had to walk up stairs even he
would have been a dead man. Mind
you, he was a doctor.
One of my editorial associates on the
rioneer, who belonged to the Natural
ists1 Club in Allahabad, one day
brought in a kaireit in a bottle, and
was exhibiting it to the members. "It
is dead," said he, and he thought it
was, for it was all broken to pieces.
All at once the headlwgan to wriggje
and bounce around. It could bite the
just as good as it could before. You
may guess there was a scampering.
That is a peculiarity of these snakes.
When you think they are dead they
are not That is another reosos via

The cobra of which I have spoken Is.
as you may have read, famous for Its
ability to charm whatever it comes in
contact with, but I never dreamed of
the powers of the cobra until I went to
India. It raises itself about one-third
of its length from the ground, and.
distending its great hood, waves itself
back and forth. Its hood whon epen
looks as if the snake was cut length
wise in the breast, a little like an open
coat A Hide view of it gives a mottled
appearance of the shape of an inverted
pair of spectacles. It waves itself
backward and forward, breathing and
blowing in a mysterious way, and the
eight is so awful you can't take your
eyes off it Its little eyes gleam like
two bulls of fire, and when it Btrlkes

A strange thing in India Is that
every thing in ths way of a serpent, a
scorpion, tarantula or wild animal is

The snakes of India are in Bengal
and down south in Madras. These
are the home of the snakes. North
west India is sot very snakey. In
some places there are so many snakes
that it is simply a hell on earth.
There are many other snakes thau the
kinds I have told you of, and many ol
them are poisonous, but those are the
worst There are also contipedes five
inches long, and poisonous lizards that
drop their tails off and go right on,

A KLEPTOMANIAC'S RUSE.
How 8he Got a Valuable Ring at h
I'rlca Sat by HarieIC
"See that old lady at the other end
of the store? Well, she is one of the
most confirmed kleptomaniacs in New
York. It is hardly possible that you
would believe mo if I were to tell you
her name. She belongs to one of the
best families in Brooklyn and is well
known in this city. Every one con
nected with this store is cognizant
of her failing and acts accordingly.
Notwithstandingour precautions, how
ever, a few months ago she managed to
deceive us in a very ingenious way.
She had been here several times and
appeared to take a great fancy to a
valuable diamond and ruby ring. One
day she asked my employer what its
price was and he told her that it was
the best he had ia the store and waa
worth 300. She laughed and offered
to give f 2A0 for it. and on this being
refused said: 'Well, will you let me
have it at that price if I can steal it?'
Certainly,' he replied, and nothing
more was thought about the matter.
"Several times after that she came
here and had the proprietor take out
the tray and exhibit the ring, on each
occasion renewing her previous offer.
"About two months ago the old lady
showed a ring to my employer and
asked what he thought it was worth.
After examining the article critically
be said that it was worth about $250.
'I have several,' he continued, 'much
better than that which I will sell for
"At this the old lady gave a cunning
little laugh, and proceeded to count
out 250 from her pocketbook. Some
thing in the kleptomaniac's man net
aroused his suspicions and hastening
to the case he discovered that the 300
ring was missing. During one of her
visits the old lady had managed to ab
stract it from the trsy and insert in its
place one of very Bmall value. To say
that my employer was angry when h
discovered how he had been duped but
feebly expresses his emotions. lie was
furious, and when he was reminded oi
his promise to sell the ornament for
(250 if the lady managed to steal It, he
kept his word, but begged that the
itory should not be told to any of his
friends." Jewelers' Weekly.

A ROMAN ANTIQUE.
On of Julius I'wi.ar'a llorty Servants Dis
covered In Xetr York.
It was a warm day in summer, and I
seated myself for a moment on one of
the benches in Washington Square.
A few minutes later an old, white
haired negro came hobbling along with
the aid of a stick, and seated himself
at the other end of the bench, lifting
his battered hat to me deferentially as
he did so.
I was both surprised and flattered at
such a manifestation of politeness in
New York, and remarked to the old
man in a friendly tone:
"A fine day, Uncle."

silent chuckle, which exposed his
toothless gums, ' doan' know I done

"That's impossible," I replied; "that

"I reckon l's 'bout nineteen hun

after a short pause. "I useter be Mars

A vision of imperial Rome rose up
before me, with all its glory and mag

"THE FORTY WINKS."
Advantages to Ha Derived by Old People
from an Afternoon Nap.
Sleep is closely connected with the
question of diet "Good sleeping" was
a noticeable feature in the large ma
jority of Dr. Humphrey's cases. Sound,
refreshing sleep is of the utmost conse
quence to the health of tho body, and
no substitute can be found for it as a
restorer of vital energy. Sleeplessness
is, however, oft n a source of great
rouble to elduV ly "people, and one
which Is not easily relieved. Warcotio
remedies are generally mischievous;
their first effects may be pleasant, but
the habit of depending upon them
rapidly grows until they become indis
pensable. When this stage has been
reached, the sufferer is in a far worse
plight than before. In all cases the
endeavor should be made to discover
whether the sleeplessness be due to
any romovable cause, such a indi
gestion, cold, want of exercise, and the
like. In regard to sleeping in the day
time, there is something to be said both
for and against that practice. A nap
of "forty winks" in the afternoon en
ables many aged people to get through
the rest of the day in comfort, whereas
they feel tired and weak when deprived
of this refreshment If they rest well
at night there can be no objection to
the afternoon nap, but if sleeplessness
be complained of, the latter should be
discontinued for a time. Most old
people find that a reclining posture,
with the feet and legs raised, is better
than the horizontal position for the
afternoon nap. Digestion proceeds
with more ease than when the body is

Rare Courage and Freneiice of Mind of sv
Some years ago four men. who were

rendered it impossible to procure as

proved fatal had not a young girl, a
servant in the family, with courage and
humanity that would have done honor
to the most elevated station, at the haz

seventeen years of age, was at her own
request let down several times to the
poor men by a rope. She was so for
tunate as to save two of them pretty
easily, but in tying the third to the
cord which was let down to her for the
purpose, she found her breath failing,
and was in great danger of suffocation.
In this dreadful situation she had the
presence of min i to tie herself by the .
hair to the rope and was thus drawn up,
almost expiring, with the poor man in

upon being let down again, but her ex

any thing of importance, but they are
Interesting. According to statistic
prepared in Russia, the need of sleep
is greater in women than in men, the
duration of sleep being longer and thq
percentage of tired morning and even

to 3 respectively as compared to the
men. Students sleep longer and are
less tired than other men. The time
needod to fall asleep is about the same
in all three classes 20.8 minutes for
the men, 17.1 minutes for students and
21.2 minutes for women. In each case;
however, it takes longer for those who
