Its Birth, Hlse apd Progress
Nihilism in Bussia -was first promul
gated a few years previous to the ac
cession of Emperor Nicholas in 1825.
The revolution of that year-was caused
by it, although the association was pop
ularly known as the " Decemberists,"
from the month in which the riot of St
Petersburg occurred. The followers of
this organization established a paper in
London called the Bell, with the famous
revolutionist, Hertzen, as editor. His
chief object was to bring about a regen
eration of the people and to sweep from
the face of the earth every member of
the Czar's family, the titled aristocracy
and the priests, and to make an equal
division of all lands. He was remarka
bly able, and his productions, called
".Letters from This bide, produced a
5rof ound impression upon the youth of
iussia. He unveiled the secrets of the
Czar's household, and painted him in
the most frightful colors. His agents
penetrated the seclusion of the highest
circles oJltussian society and made con
verts everywhere, but chiefly in the uni
versities. Hip influence continued un
til 1848. He died in Switzerland a few
year? since an exile on whose head a
price nad ueen set for naif a century.
Societies under various names sprung
up1, all having Hertzen's views as their
fundamental doctrine. The chief of these
was the "Society of Young Eussia."
They went further than ilertzen, and in
their journals, published secretly in Eus
sia, they even denounced the Bell as
"old fogy." Among the advocates of
the new doctrine were Mikhailoft, the
great poet, and Tzernyshevski, of Naples,
Jn 1870 the publications were sup
pressed and the writers exiled. But thin
mattered little, because their views had
gained so strong a hold upon the Eus
sian mind that leaders were unnecessary.
In June, 1872, the Czar issued a ukase,
giving power to the Minister of the In
terior to punish any undue freedom of
the press, and since that time there has
been an unceasing round of persecution.
In. the midst of it all, however, the doc
trines of the revolutionists have been
gaining steadily, until they have honey
combed the Eussian empire from end to
end. The name Nihilists was first given
to them in 1864, in a series of letters by
Antovitch, and was immediately adopt
ed, and is now universally recognized by'
revolutionists of every grade.
In 1870 the Nihilists began to take
decided and important action. Young
men and young ladies, even in the high
est ranks of society, dressed themselves
as peasants and sought menial employ
ment, going everywhere and submitting
to any sacrifice, that they might propa-
fato their doctrine. The ladies havi
een especially efficient They cut oil
their long hair, and entered the pro
fessions. Some of them became physi
cians, and followed recklessly the exam
ples of the men, and they became
equally dangerous to the permanence of
the empire as the most flagrant among
the revolutionists. Out of their extrenu
notions of liberty they adopted a form
of free-love, abrogating the rite of mar
riage, and dressing in peculiar forms
somewhat similar to the Bloomer cos
tume of this country.
The strength of the secret Nihilist
Government, known as the Society for
General Freedom, can hardly be overes
timated. It has its followers in every
circle of society and in every household.
Its organization is marvelously perfect
and compact, while its mysteries are
surrounded by the most awful oaths,
with immediate death as the penalty for
their violation. Beside these, there are
eome 14,000,000 of the Starovier (old
faith men). These declare the Czar
and his family to be agents of the devil.
They endure every form of persecution,
and can always be relied upon as the
firm friends of the Nihilists. They em
ploy agents who go from village to vil
lage spreading their doctrine. They are
U able to read and write, and among
tliem aro multitudes of Poles and ex-
i.xiles. By the Nihilists and Staroviers
assassination is regarded as a justifiable
meanB of ridding the country of tyrants.

Suake Stories from the "White Sulpfaar
There are no flies or 'mosquitoes at the
"White Sulphur, but there are plenty of
snakes in the outlying neighborhood.
The mountains are filled "with copper
heads, rattlesnakes and adders. There
are no desirable walks and drives abeufc
here. The majority- of visitors keep
within the 800 acres known as the "WTiite
Sulphur reservation. The other day &
mountaineer bxoucrht in two huce rattle
snakes. He had them in a wooden box
with a glass top. The snakes were very
activb and vicious. They rolled, hissed
and struck at visitors who bent over' the
box, greatly to the terror of the chil
dren who crowded about the owner of
the snakes. One colored man expressed
great fear that the snakes would get out
and bite some one. "That would be all
day with them, I guess," said he. " Oh,
no I " said the mountaineer " a rattle
snake bite doesn't amount to no thin'."
"It don't? said a visitor.,
" No," said the mountaineer ; there is
not a man up in our pearls but what has
been bit by rattlers a Rood manv times.
It is easy enough to cure the bite."
'Some put on 'turpentine. That-
draws the pizen out. Jest put the mouth
of a bottle tilled with turpentine on the
wound, and the pizen will dror out and
make the turpentine green. Some, how
ever, kill the snake and bind a piece of
it on the bite. That drors the pizen out.
There is a man up onr way, however,
who never does nothin' when a rattler
bites him. He has been bitten, three-
times. The bites kind a swelled up, but
after a time the swellin' went away
" Did he Bay he did nothing to cure: .
" He must have lied."
" He is a preacher, and"
"Enough you need go .no further."
' The mountaineer says that the worst
snake in the mountains is the copper
head. It gives no warning, is often in
clined to be agcrressive. and strikes
quickly and surely. Its bite is much
more deadly than that of the rattle
snake. There is a den of snakes at
Cool Knob, a station some thirty miles
from here, where there are thousands" of
snakes in a great cavern that no native
has ever been bold enough to approach,
to say nothing of exploring. Cor.

JL Great Singer's Meanness.
Between Patti and her sister Carlotta.
as the world knows, there is" undying
hatred. The last mentioned is. a great
artist and a woman of -trreat heart. Shu
is really loved by many in her career.
aiiu wiitui u ureuuiiu operation was per
formed on her in Paris two yeara ago
the whole world sent' messages, letters
and. dispatches, all of anxious ; inquiry,
but from the sister whose arms hud
proffered many a childish embrace, there
came not one word of love or sympathv.
All the while that Carlotta Patti was lu
the hospital with the good sisters-ofrBt.
Joseph, Adelina, was ,at the Hotel du
Bhin, and during fourteen anxious days,
while hovering between life and death,
an own sister, Bhe never sent word to
know how she was, and said, when asked
to come and witness the operation and
join in the sacraments taken with the
family before the ohlorof orm was given,
that "She, did not care whether, she
lived or died, and not to annoy Ber any
more. Mme. Strakoschdid not dare
tell Carlotta the real truth, and th
invalid believed until she was quife out
of danger that an. old ud hadbeen
healed oyer, and that a faydrite sister
had scarcely left' her bedside during so
terrible a trial. London tetter,:
