At nuy rate, he had announced the
plighted troth in his mess, and it was
accepted as a fact in society. At that
time Searles was Mrs. Hopkins1 archi

Care of The Piano.
Our American climate is very severe
in its effects upon poorly made pianos,
says the Opera. The great variations
in temperature during the different
seasons of the year render it impossible
for any but the best pianos, made with
iron frames to remain tiniujured. The
most delicate parts of the piano neces
sarily being made of wood, the fittings
and joints of which are adjusted with
the greatest nicety, extreme heat or
dampness is very detrimental to their
well being. The mercury should not
be allowed, if possible, to rise above
75 degrees nor to fall below 40 in the
room in which the piano is kept. The
piano should not be placed where the
hot air from a heater, stove or grate is
thrown against it- Care should be
taken to place the instrument where
its entire surface will be subjected, as
nearly as possible, to the same degree
of temperature, as nothing will so soon
put a piano out of tune as being kept
with one end cool and the other warm,
as is frequently the case when an in
strument is placed between the hot air
from a hejaterand the cold air which in
winter is falling within one or two feet
from the windows. A sodden change
of twenty degrees in temperature will
put the best piano slightly out of tune.
A change of temperature, therefore, in
a heated bouse should be gradual.
Dampness is more to be feared in sum
mer than winter. Do not place the
piano near open windows, aud be par
ticularly careful that the instrument is
closed at night.
In speaking of the minute parasites
which are found in the hairy part of a
tiger's foot, a scientist says: "They
constitute one of the most wonderful
curiosities I know of in the animal
world. The parasites are so stn:iU as
to be almost invisible tit the naked eye,
and yet each is a jerfect counterpart
of the tiger's head. ears. jaw,legs,claws,
body, tail, all are there. You may
think this is a big story, bnt look the
subject up and e if it is not so."

BEWARE THE BLACKSNAKE.
Ha ta Mora Formidable Tlun ihs Rat
, tier, m On Woman' Bsperlenee Vmn
Ask any of the farmers or hunters in
this part of Monroe county whether
they are afraid of rattlesnukes, and
they will answer promptly that they
dou't mtnd them very much, writes a
Peunsylvaniacorrespondent. Ask them
if they fear blacksnakes. and they will
say yes without the slightest hesita
tion. This fear of blacksnakes has
come down to most of tliem from their
fiarents, with a story that none of them
s ever tired of telling. They alt de
clare that it Is true, and it is so well
known, and Is told with so much
solemnity and evident fetir by the
natives, that H is hnrd to disbelieve It.
The story runs like this:
Many years ngo a well-to-do former
lived with his futility nenr the barren
land verging on Pike county. His
wife was city bred and unused to many
of the hardships that are a part of the
forming woman's life. She was strong
and httrdv, however, with plenty of
nerve, and grit enough to make the
best of things. One day, while her
husband was working in a clearing a
good distauue from the house, she
went down to the spring for a pail of
water. As she stooped over to till the
pail a blacksuake that had been lying
coiled near the spring jumped at "her.
She screamed and jumped back, but
the snake had burled its fan 3 in her
dress, and. before she could recover
herself auilluieutly to shake him off, he
had wound himself about her so tight
ly as to prevent her from walking.
Theu be began slowly to crawl up
ward. The poor woman struck at the
snake with her hands.
They were badly bitten, but she was
so overcome with fright that she did
not mind this and kept on striking at
him. The serpent kept crawling up
uutil his coils were about her breast.
She tried to tear hiui loose, but she
was not strong enough. She became
nearly paralyzed with terror. The
snake finally coiled himself around ber
neck and choked her. She started
toward the house, but she had only
fone a short distance when she fell,
n the evening she was found by her
husband lying dead, with the snake
still coiled about her neck.
This story, with the welt-known fact
that a blacksnake is ever ready and
willing to light anything that "lives,
makes the native afraid of him. and
the man who kills a blacksnake is
thought to have won a greater battle
than the slayer of a dozen rattlesnakes.
You can t frighten a black snake,"
said -oua old hunter, "and the more
you try to the mure he ain't fright
ened. A rattlesnake is a coward, and
will run if you give him half a chance.
If he doesn't get the chauce he will
rattle in fear and then strike in des
peration. A rattlesnake bite is not
nearly as duugerous as many people
suppose. All that you have to do to
render the wound harmless is to cut in
as deep as the fangs went, then go to
the nearest brook and wash it thor
oughly. A common poultice will
soon heal the wound made by the
knife. But if a big blacksnake tackles
you, and you give liim a chauce to get
one coil alrout your body, why, then,
look out, for it is your life or Ins."
A Romanue of Slavery Days.
A colored womau.beut nearly double
with 80 vears and a heavy bundle, was
seen to board the Cincinnati Mail Line
Kacket. Approaching the clerk of the
oat, she slowly untied a knot in the
corner of her red bandana handker
chief and produced enough cash to
purchase a deck ticket for Cincinnati.
The wrinkled and feeble old n egress
is the heroine of a romance.
In ante-bellum days she was a slave,
and was owued by a planter near
Asheville, N. C At an early age she
was married to a slave of the same
master. By him she had several chil
dren. Over half a century ago her
husband was torn from her and her
children, - and was sold to another
planter. The woman continued to
work on the North Carolina planta
tion, and iu a short time was married
again. Her whole family was then
put on the block and sold to a Virginia
man. When the emancipation procla
mation was promulgated the family
took advantage of their freedom and
journeyed northward, finally taking
up their home in Louisville. The hus
band died after the dose of the war,
and the children one by one left their
mother to seek their fortunes.
The mother toiled and labored to
make a livelihood. She heard nothing
of her first husband until about a
rmonth ago, when one of her sons
found that the old man was living at
Newport. Ky. The old negrcss jour
neyed thither and found the husband
of her youth. He had also been mar
ried a second time. and had several
children by his second wife. The lat
ter was dead, however, aud the re
united couple decided to again live to
gether. The woman returned to Louis
ville, disposed of her effects and com
pleted the romance of fifty years by
returning to her husband.
Ploaeer Spanish Families: fa Cali
fornia. A multitude of stories of the social
life of the Spanish period might be
told. Each town on the coast was the
center of the hide and tallow trade for
a hundred miles or more. The low
adobe stores there held piles of costly
aud beautiful goods iu the days of
which Fa m ham and Dana wrote the
days when the (Treat cattle princes
came from their ranches to hold
festival. The young cavaliers rode in
oo fiery but well-trained and gaily
caparisoned horses, and all the won
derful feats of horsemanship of as tine
a race of riders as the world has ever
seen, were performed daily on mesa
and sea-beach and plaza.
But the home life of these great
families was simplicity itself. In many
a Spanish house there was no fireplace,
window, or chimney. The fire for
cooking was built on a clay floor, part
ly roofed, outside of the main building.
The household utensils wero few a
copper or iron kettle, a slab of rock on
which to pound corn or wheat, a soap
stone griddle for the tortillas. Dishes,
tableware, and furniture came slowly,
and were of the most simple descrip
tion. For years a raw hide stretched
on the floor with a blanket spread over
it formed the usual bed iu early Cali
fornia. Everything was ' kept exquisitely
clean, and though the Spanish families
learned to speud more on their houses
and belongings, they seemed to look
upon such things as only affording op
portunities for a more generous hospi
tality. diaries Howard Shinn, in Cen
tury. Feline Sagacity.
A good cat story, illustrating the
sagacity of the felines, is told by a gen
tleman who saw the occurrence. A
cat saw a rat run out from under a
stable and seek shelter in a woodpile.
Tommy followed his ralship and tried
to reach bim, bnt could not do so.
Finding that his efforts were in vain
Tommy scratched his head and hit up
on an idea. Leaving the woodpile he
went off a short distance, informed an
other cat of what was up, and the two
went back to the woodpile. ; Tommy
No. 1 stationed Tommy No. 2 at the
place where the rat had entered the
woodpile, while he climbed npon the
wood and began sera tc h i n g. This
frightened the rat out and he ran into
the chops of Tommy No. 2. who had
been expecting such an occurrence.

The table having been wheeled as

by means of a crane and Its contents
poured quickly out on the table. The

A Vegetable Caterpillar,
One of the queerest things of Tas
mania. New Zealand, and other parts
of Australasia is the bulrush, or veget
able caterpillar. This wonderful plant
Is a fungus, a sphaeria. which grows
seven or eight inches above the ground
generally in a single stem, round, and
thickly covered with brown seed for
some five or six inches, ending In a
curved, worm-like point. It is usually
found growing at the roots of a par
ticular tree, the "rata" of the natives.
When this plant is pulled up Its single
root is found to be the exact counter
part of a large caterpillar, sny one,
three.or four inches long; but although
it preserves every detail of such grubs,
dissection proves it to be solid wood.
Intelligent persons of the countries
named above say that this curiosity is
formed in the following manner: A
large species of moth feeds en the
"rata" tree; the grub of this moth bur
rows in the ground; the seed of the
sphaeria gets lodged between the
scales on the grub's neck, strikes root,
and completely turns the interior of
the creature into a woody substance.
In every cose tiie shell of the grub is
left intact, no small rootlets punctur
ing It at any point. Scientists say that
the above explanation is nil "bosh."
and that the plant develops the form of
a caterpillar because it is its nature to
do so. If this be true, why should we
laugh at the stories of the Mandrake
Man and the Scythian Lamb, specimens
of which are preserved in the Surgeons'
Prince ISisraarck Wooing.
Prince Bismarck bejratt -hfci wooing
in a rather stern manner. As he al
ways favored energetic measures, he
wrote direct to the young lady's par
ents, with whom he was not acquaint
ed, and demanded their daughter in
marriage. They were simple folk
leading a very quiet life, and they
were rather frightened at the reputa
tion for high lit ing which the candi
date enjoyed. Thi-ir daughter, how
ever, intimated in disereet terms thnt
she did not look upmi the youn$r gen
tleman with an unfavorable eye. as
there was uo doubt the young man's
parents had a good tepiilution.
Consequently the vouur lady's par
ents iuvited Bismarck to come and see
them. Every one d-d their best to
give the visitor a suitable receptiou.
Frautein von Pultkammer'a parents
pnt on an air of grave solemnity, and
the young lady stood with her eyes
modestly bent upon the ground, when
Bismarck on alighting threw his arms
arouud his sweetheart's neck and em
braced her vigorously before any oue
had time to tell him that his conduct
was hardly proper and correct. The
result was, however, an immediate be
trothal. Prince Bismarck is very fond
of telling this tale, and be is careful
always to finish the story by this re
flection: "And yon have no Idea what this
little lady has made of me."
August Belmont's Superstitions.
- The late August Belmont once told
the writer, on t he Mon mouth race
track, that his hor-m- would not win
because a flock of blm-k'nrds had cross
ed his path that morning. "I saw the
blackbirds iu tlte field." he related,
"and said to myself. if they fly across
I shall lose.1 So I walked my team
carefully carefully. But no! Just as
I came opposite, the birds flew in front
of me, wheeled about nnd crossed me
again. I shall not go to the stables.
I have sent for my trainer to tell him
ii is no use trying" to win to-day. . At
auother time he was in radiant spirits
because a little bird had flown Into his
balhroom and allowed itself to be fed.
"1 shall have good luck!" he exclaimed
"Wait and you shall see." That day
he won three principal races. Indeed
a curious phase of his superstitions was
that they generally turned out to be
correct. When he felt that he was go
ing to lose he did lose; when he imag
ined he was going to win he did win,
This may be explained by coincidence,
or by the fact that his trainer and
jockeys were shrewd enough to humor
his whims, knowing that he would rath
er justify his superstitions than capture
a race. But, whatever the explanation,
the fact that such a man should be sub
ject to su i caprices is wonderful.
How To Wash The Hands.
Now, about your hands. Wash them
in hot water, using almond meal in
stead of soap, just before you go to
bed, nnd during the day dou't wash
them too much iu cold water. A wo
man who has very beautiful hands told
me that during the daytime she wiped
off any stain that might be upon them
with a piece of kid on which was a lit
tle vaseline. However, I am a bit old
fashioned and prefer water to this.
Then when you have the time, sit with
your finger tips in a bowl of hot water,
and after they have soaked well, dry
thPiu and trim the nails, keeping the
skiu at the base of each down iu its
place. Push it down either- with the
end of a soft ivory file, or a bit of wood,
but do not cut it off. Do not point
your nails, and do not polish them too
much. The first makes tho skin super
sensitive and causes it to grow quicker,
while the second and third are counted

How To Clean Blankets.
Prepare the following mixture in the
forenoon. Share one pound and a
half of any good laundry sonp Into
thin small shavings. Entirely melt it
In a saucepan of water on the lire.
Strain the melted soap through a col
ander into a tub half-full of lukewarm
water. Add half a pound of powdered
borax and a tablespoonful of molasses.
Thoroughly stir the mixture; pnt in
the equal of one double blanket, and
notice as you do so where the stnius
are. Leave the blanket simply soak
lug, well covered in this nice soft suds,
for nearly twenty-four hours. Next
morning look for the stains. If they
are not all soaked out, pat them and
gently wave them In the water, but
never rub them. Rnbbiug makes wool

then put them into another rinsing wa

enough to clear them. If. a third is

Have ft strong clothesline stretched
as tight as possible out in the yard.
Strung sun is ant to fade the colored
borders of blankets, so choose a shady,
breezy place to dry them In. If you
can take them out in a tub, do so. oth
erwise lift them, saturated with water,
into a basket, and carry them full of
water to the clothesline. Hanir them
exactly through the middle lengthwise
ou tne line; then the colored borders
of the blankets will hang vertically.
See that the fold of the blanket is
slightly wrinkled, that is, a very little
full, as the blanket lies over the line,
else the middle of the blanket wilt be
found to dry stretched louger than the
edes. The blankets after this process
will be clean, soft, and not shrunken.
J nut Full or Etiquette.
Many of the colored people of Wash
ington are the aristocrats of their race.
They are prosperous, conceited, fond
of loud clothes and very much in evi
dence," especially in the presence of
white folks. In one of the cars of the
electric railway which runs to the
Catholic University ft few days ago sat
a big, di-.idy mulatto, dressed not in
the heifhth, but the caricature of fash
ion. He bad striped trousers, a light
correct "top coat." the shiniest of silk
bats, the most brilliant of scarfs, dog
skin gloves and a big cane. His seat
was in the middle of the car, and the
adjacent white trash felt small indeed
in his distinguished presence. The car
was full. Presently' gesticulates to the
conductor a colored woman, dressed
as gaudily as her brother exquisite In
the car. She had on a light blue silk,
an immense hat, big bracelets, big ear
rings, a big fur cape, anil everything
else according." When she got to
the car door she stopped, looking for m
chance to sit down. This was the mu
latto dandy's chance. Rising to his
full height h. he waved his hand mag
nificently and exclaimed: '-Dis way,
lady; dis way, lady; here's a sent."
The lady advanced. stnilinf expansive
ly, and took her seat with gracious
nods of thanks, at which the gentleman
bowed with the grace of Turveydrop.
The white Iras Ii sank into insignifi
cance, feeling their inferiority. The
colored gentleman felt it, too, and be
determined to administer a severe les
son. Grasping a strap with one hand,
he cast a supercilious glance about
htm. aud just as the car w as starting,
exclaimed: "I'se just full of Uiquit. I
is!' Then lie looked to the lady for
admiration, and got it. As for the
white trash, they roared. And the
car went on. New York Star

She Will Not Wear Them.
Speaking of weird, uncanny gifts,

Eair of house slippers, presented her

a writer in the Illustrated American.
They were not so remarkable looking,
but as she brought them in, balanced
on the ferule of her parasol, the com

of something out of the ordinary.
Gently dropping the dainty footgear
on a rug, the owner invited ber friends
to use their umbrellas freely in turn

every part. They were admirably
made, with narrow soles, pointed toes,
high heels and a big monogram em

A Cure for Diphtherial
A peasant physician named Rieger of
Glogaa In Silesia announces a cure fo
diphtheria which an agent of the em
peror has examined and reported very
favorably upon. It is thonght to be a
mixture of extracts from two or tbret
common weeds aud an oil. The salva
resulting from the mixture is liquefied
and applied with a brush to the inter,
for of the throat. The remedy was
discovered by Rieger's father, a shep
herd. It was applied by him only to
external wounds. Once, when young
Rieger's whole herd was dying of diph
theria, he.ln despair of all other means,
began treating their throats with the
salve. The favorable effect was apparent
almost immediately, and in a few days
every head of cattle was well again.
Shortly afterwards diphtheria became
epidemic in the village. Rieger was
itirariubly called to give his remedy in
the most severe cases, and almost with
out exception it was followed by recov
ery. Gradually its fame spread, till to
day he is receiving calls to care per
sons of diphj j jj f-rTpr Germany.
The freSTuatliave contributed most
to his reptiliition were effected a few

A Natural Inquiry.
A certain witty bishop found him
self, a few mouths ago, crossing the
Bay of Fundy, from Dig by to St. John,
in company with a certain Mr. Cas
well. The Bay of Fundy has a repu
tation for turbulence only to be
matched by the English Channel or
the Bay of Biscay. Mr. Caswell was
struggling with a violent attack of
sea-sickuess; but the bishop, who was
above such weakness, was very cheer
ful, and inclined to conversation. He
had failed, however, to catch Mr. Cas
well's name correctly, and persisted in
calling him "Mr. As well." At lost the
sufferer, in a moment of ease, correct
ed him. saying: -
"Caswell, my lord; my name. is Cas
well, not Asweil.n
"Oh!" said the bishop, eyeing him
critically, as a new spasm seized npon
his unhappy acquaintance. "Well.

A peculiar thing abont Jiving in
Central America is the ease with yrhlch
yon become accustomed to the earth
quakes. Tbey do not come without
giving due notice. You are sitting ou
a piazza of a hot afternoon chattib
with your friends when suddenly the
sky seems to grow hazy? the crows stop
cawing; and the buzzards quit fighting
in the street. There is a generai ru$Lt
and, though you may uot know what is
the matter you cannot help feeitng un
easy. The old natives say "We are
going to have a little shaker" and then
the house begins to rock, the tnmblry
fall off the table, yon feet deadly sick
at the stomach, and the tkinsr U over:
the sky clears, the crows beyria their
noisy screams and the buzzards r
stime their quarrel over the 3tret; off!.
There is something inexpressively ter
rifying, however, about the trembiioj
of the earth; the slightest escitiatiou
will awaken the pisiation of tne
