The Devil Fish.
extuaokiunarv t.m.e of the sea a sfcuoonek
Seized and Submerged ly a Gigantic Cvttle
Fish. Tl,e following ttoiy about a veritable sea
serpent is told by the East India newspaper, the
Homeward Mail :
Wc had left Colombo in the eteamer Strat'
hcvtn, had rouDded Galle and were well in the
bay, with our course laid for Madras, steaming
over a calm and tranquil sea. About an hour
before eunsct on the 10th of May we saw on our
stai board beam and about two miles off, a small
(ch joner lyin becalmed. There was nothing in
her appearance or position to excite remark, but
as we tame up with her I lazily examined her
with my binocular, and then noticed between ue,
but nearer her, a lung, low ewelling lying on the
ecu, which from its color and shape I took to be
u bunk of seaweed. As 1 watched, the muss,
hitherto at rest on the quiet tea, was set in
motion. It struck the schooner, which visibly
reeled and then righted. Immediately after
wards the masts swayed sideways, and with my
glass I could clearly discern the enormous mass
and the hull of the tchooner coalescing I can
think of no other term. Judging from their ex
clamations the other gazers must have witnessed
the same appearance. Almost immediately after
the collision and coalescence the schooner's masts
swayed towards us, lower and lower ; the vessel
was on her beam ends, lay there a few seconds
aiid disappeared, the masts righting as she sank,
and the main exhibiting a reversed ensign strug
gling towards its peak. A cry of horror rose
trom the lookers-on, and, as if by instinct, our
ship's head was at once turned toward the scene,
which was now marked by the forms of those
battling for life the sole Burvivors of the pretty
little schooner which only twenty minutes before
floated bravely on the smooth sea. As 6oon ns
the poor fellows were able to tell their story,
they astounded us with the assertion that their
vessel had been submerged by a gigantic cuttle
fish or calamary, the animal which, in a smaller
form, attracts so much attention in the Brighton
Aquarium as the octopus. Each narrator had
his version of the story, but in the main all the
narratives tallied so remarkably as to leave no
doubt of the fact. As soon as he was at leisure,
I prevailed on the skipper to give me his written
account of the disaster, and 1 have now much
pleasure in sending you a copy of his narrative,
signed 4i James Floyd, late master o." schooner
"1 was lately the skipper of the Pearl
schooner, oue hundred and fifty tons, as tight a
little cralt as ever sailed the seas, with a crew of
six men. Yc were bound from the Mauritius
for Rangoon, in ballast, to return with padd',
and had put in at dalle for

js. i-,. ua me lutn ot jiav. aoout
m., eiiiht bells, I know, had cone we
sighted a two-masted screw on our port quarter,
about five or 6ix miles off'. Very soon after, as
we lay motionless, a great mass rose slowly out
of the sea about halt a mile off on our larboard
side, and regained spread out, as it were, sta
tionary. It looked like the back of a huge
whale, but it sloped less, and was of a brownish
color. Even at that distance it seemed much
longer than our craft, and it seemed to be bask
ing in the'sun. 'What's that?' I 6ung out to
the mate. ' Blest if I knows ; barring its 6ize,
color, and shape, it might be a whale,' replied
Tom Scott ; and it ain't the ser-serpeut,' said
one of the crew, for he's too round for that ere
ciittur.' 1 went into the cabin for my rifle, and
as I was preparing to fire, Bill Darling, a New
foundlander, came on deck, aud looking at the
monster, exclaimed, putting up his hand, ' Have
a care ; that ere is a squid, and will capsize us
if you hurt him.' Smiling at the idea, I let fly
and hit him, and with that he shook ; there was
a great ripple all round him, and he began to
move. Out with all your axes and knives,'
shouted Bill, ' and cut at auy part of him that
comes abroad; look alive, and Lord help us!'
Not aware of the danger, and never having seen
or heard of such a monster. I gave no orders, and
it was no use touching the helm or ropes to get
out of the way. By this time threo of the crew,
Bill included, had found axes, and one a rusty
cutlass, and all were looking over the ship's side
at the advancing monster. We could now see a
huge oblong mass moving by jerks just under
the surface of the water, and an enormous train
following the oblong body was at least half the
size of our vessel in length and just as thick ;
the wake or train might have been one hundred
feet long. In the time that I have taken to write
this the brute struck us, and the vessel quivered
under the thud ; in another moment, monstrous
arms like trees seized the vessel and she heeled
over, in another instant the monster was aboard,
squeezed in between the two masts, Bill scream
ing, Slash for your lives ;' but all our slashing
was of no avail, for tho brute, holding on by his
arms, slipped his vast body overboard, aud pulled
the vessel down with him on her beam-ends ; we
were thrown into the water at once, and just as
I went over I caught eight of oue of the crew,
either Bill or Tom Fielding, squashed up between
the masts and one of those awfu! arms; for a
few seconds our Bhip lay on her beam-ends, then
filled and went down ; another ol the crew must
have been 6uckcd down, for you only picked up
five ; the rest you know. I can't tell who ran
up the ensign."

is probable ; that this disturbance must be

The Romance of a Sleeping Car.
It was in the Cedar Rapida sleeper. Outside,
it was dark as the inside of an ink bottle. In
the sleeping car people slept.
Or tried it.
Some of them slept, like Christian men and
women. Peacefully and sweetly and quietly.
Others slept like demons, malignantly, hid
eously, fiendishly, as though it was their mission
to keep everybody else awake.
Of these, the man in lower number three was
the "boss." When it came to a square snore
with variations, you wanted to count " lower
three " in. With a full hand and a pocket full
We never heard anything snore like him. It
was the most systematic snoring that was ever
done, even on one of those tournaments of snort
ing, a sleeping car. He didn't begin as soon as
the lamps were turned down and everybody was
in bed. Oh no. There was more cold blooded
diabolism in his system than that. He waited
until everybody had had a little taste of sleep,
just to see how good and pleasant it was, and
then he broke in on their slumbers like a winged,
breathing demon, and they never knew what
peace was again that night.
lie started out with a terrific.
" Gn-r-r-r-t !"
That opened every eye iu the car. We all
hoped it was an accident, however, and trusting
that he wouldn't do it again, we all forgave him.
Then he blasted our hopes and curdled the Bweet
serenity of our forgiveness by a long drawn
That sounded too much like business to be
accidental. Then every head in that sleepless
sleeper was held off the pillow for a minute,
waiting, ia breathless suspense, to hear the
worst, and the sleeper in "lower three" went
on in long drawn, regular cadences that indicated
good staying qualities.
"Gwa-a-ah! Gwa-a-a-h ! Gahwahwah ! Gah
wahwah ! Gahwa-a-a-ah !"
Evidently it was going to last all night, and
the weary heads dropped back on the sleepless
pillows and the swearing began. It mumbled
along in low, muttering tones, like the distant
echoes of a profane thunder storm. Pretty soon
" lower three " gave us a little variation. He
shot off' a spiteful
Which sounded as though his nose had got
mad at him and was going to strike. Then there
was a pause and we began to hope he had either
awakened from sleep or strangled to death, no
body cared particularly which. But he dis
appointed everybody with a guttural
" Gurooch !"
Then he paused again for breath, aud when he
had accumulated enough for his purposes he
resumed with a stentorious
That nearly Bhot the roof off the car. Then
he went on playing such fantastic tricks with his
nose aud breathing things that would make the
immortal gods weep, if they did but hear him.
It seemed a matter incredible, it seemed an utter,
preposterous impossibility that any human being
could make the monstrous, hideous noises with
its breathing machine that the fellow in " lower
three " was making with his. He ran through
all the ranges of the nasal gamut, he went up
and down a very chromatic scale of snores, he
ran through intricate and fearful variations until
it seemed that his nose must be out of joint iu a
thousand tilaccs. All the nirht and all nisht
through he told his story.
" Gawoh ; gurrrh ! gu-r-r-r ! Kowpff! ! Gaw-

Just as the other passengers had consulted
together how they might slay him, morning
dawned, " lower number three " awoke. Every
body watched the curtains to see what manner of
man it was that had made that beautiful sleep
ing-car a pandemonium. Presently the toilet
was completed, the curtains parted, and " lower
uumber three 7 stood revealed.

Perihelion and Pestilence.
If there is anything in " astrological triol
we are approaching one of the most
pestilential periods in the earth's history.
Sinco the commencement of the Christian era,
the perihelia of the four great planets of the
solar system Jupiter, Uranus, Saturn and
Neptune have not been coincident. But this
is about to occur, and, in the language of Dr.
Knapp, who has traced the history of the great
est epidemics that ever afflicted the human race
to the perihelia of these planets, there will
6oon be " lively times for the doctors." The
theory is that when one or more of the largest
planets is nearest to the sun, the temperature
and condition of our atmosphere are so disturbed
as to cause injurious vicissitudes, terrible rains,
prolonged droughts, etc., resulting in the des
truction of cropu, and pestilences among human
beings and domestic animals.
Dr. Knapp has collected a mass of statistical
data, all going to 6how that perihelion periods
have always been marked by unusual mortality,
and that sickness and death have invariably
corresponded with the number of planets in
perihelion at the same time. The revolution
of Jupiter around the sun is accomplished in
a little less than twelve years, of Saturn in a
little less than thirty, of Uranus in about eighty
four years, and of Neptune in about one hun
dred and sixty-four years. If it be true, there
fore, that the perihelia of these planets occasion
atmospheric conditions unfavorable to life, pes
tilential periods should occur once iu a dozen
years, and aggravated and still more widespread
epidemics at longer interval. In tracing the
history of epidemics for more than two thousand
years, Dr. Knapp finds the facts in all cases to
validate the theory. Thus, in the 6ixth and
again in the sixteenth centuries, three of these
placets were coincident in perihelion, and those
were the most pestilential times of the Christian
But soon we are to have, for the first time
in two thousand years, all four of these planets
against us. They will be at their nearest ap
proach to the sun in or 6oon after 1880, so
that for a few years, say from 1880 to 1885,
the vitality of every living thing will be put
to a severe and trying ordeal. Some persons
think they see, in the signs of the times, evi
dences of great disasters in the immediate
future. The excessive heat, the unexampled
cold, the preva'ence of floods aud disasters at
sea, the general failure of the potato crop, the
widespread chill lever among human beings,,
and the equal prevalence of the epizootic are
among the premonitions of the rapidly approach
ing period of the perihelion.
i ell, 44 to be forewarned is to be forearmed."
Accidents excepted, we know very well that
the persons of more vigorous constitutions and
more hygienic will have tho better chance to
survive whatever adverse influence the extraordi
nary perihelia will occasion. It is well known
to phyeieions that, in all pestilences, plague,
typhus, smallpox, cholera, murrain, etc., the
intemperate, the dissipated, and those whose

Something New and Useful Honor to
Whom Honor is Due.
At a recent meeting of the Board of Managers
of the Mechanic's Institute held in Sun Francisco,
tbe committee on Mixed l'uinls submitted a lonff
aud interesting report, which we deem of -uch im
portance to our readers that we hasten to make
prominent some of the leading points. Tl e award
of tbe institute medal, highest in tbe gi t of the
society, was made to tbe California Paint Company
over all competitors ; and the report is unequivo
cal in favor of the Averill Mixed Paints made by
the company named.
The commitlee appointed by the Institute for
the examination i f mixed paints were : Prols.
Hilgard and Ewer, of the Stnte University ; and
Mr. Frost and Mr. IIopps. two leading firms of
The claim ot the Averill paints was, tnat it is
the best mixed paint and tbe award certified the
truth of this claim.
The tests were in every way fair and impartial
and tbe committee were furnished with the ma
terial distinguished by numbers aud not by its
name. Samples were taken by the secretary from
tbe exhibits aUhe pavilions aud put in unlabeled
cans, and with this unnamed material the commit
tee dealt until thty reached their conclusion con
cerning composition, etc.
The first test was the application of tbe paint to
a boardjsurface in the pavilion by a painter who
did not know the name of the paint he wus using.
All tbe mixed paints entered were tested in this
practical way to determine their spreading quali
ties aud covering power. On tbe first test it ap
pears from tbe report that tbe Averill mixed paint
was declared the best.
Then samples of each paint were delivered to
Profs. Hilgard and Rising lor analysis at the State
University. These analysis showed that tbe Aver
ill paint was composed ot tbe materials as
claimed, uamely : wbite lead, zinc, anu pure nu-
seed oil, and unadulterated. The chemists also
report in tbe Averill paint the presence of silicate j
of soda, or " water-elass." and SDeak highly of '
the use of it as a means of holding tbe lead and
oil in permanent chemical solution, so that no
separation and consequent degeneration of this
paint can occur. They draw a contrast between
this and ordinary paint. Ia ordinary paint the oil
separates from the lead and this leaves tbe lead
dry, so that it rubs off like the lime in wbite-wasb.
This is wholly obviated in the Averill system of
manufacturing mixed paint.
The report of the committee details the pains
taken to visit houses painted with the competing
paints, and they conclude that tbe Averill mixed
paint weather best, neither ' peeling" nor
" chalking." and in enduring, retaining gloss, ex
hibits those qualities which all users of paints de
sire. Examination was made of houses painted
from one to seven years with the Averill mixed
paint, and the result was the declaration of its
superiority over all other paints.
There has probably never been in tbi country
so thorough a test of paints as was made by the
Committee of the Mechanics' Institute, liegin
nine. as they did, wiih the working qualities of
tbe fresh paint, they pursued it through accurate
analysis of materials and finally applied the prac
tical test of observation where the paint had stood
for years the storm and sunshine on exposed sur
faces. The awaid fiom such an examination and
from a committee ot men whose names are surety
lo the community of their honesty, is the highest
possible testimonial of the quality of the goods
which are offered to the public for their patronage.
It would be well for purchasei s if all supplies of
fered them by manufacturers could boast of such
evidence of purity, value and endurance. .S'. F.
