Snakes and the Great Sugar

"Great Spooks!" exclaimed the
Squire, looking up from the paper
he was reading and keeping his
finger on the place. "Twenty
thousand! Wat do ye think o'
that, Major? Twenty thousan'
folks dyin' from snakes in one

Old Settler. "Wull, I think them
folks must 'a'look their applejack

too often !"
"Applejack!" said the Squire,
glaring at the Old Settler. "Apple
jack hain't got nuthin'to do with
it! These folks was bit."
"Bit, was they?" responded the
Old Settler. "Wull, tha hain't
nuthin' that kin bite wuss th'n
new applejack, Squire. I've know'd
it to be sharper'n a sarpent's tooth.
But who were tellin' ye 'bout all

That's a good many folks, Squire.

the Squire, "here it is, right here ]
in the paper ! The paper says that

Settlor. "Why, I didn't hev no
kind an idee that the sarpent had
got ez much of a foothold on Injy's

I must tell M'riar 'bout that, an'
tha'll be a special meetin' of the

trouble fer my yaller-leg chickens
ag'in, w'en this news gits around,
fer thfi Clothers and Feeders alluz
stays to supper. Wat's the returns
from Afric's sunny fountains,
The Squire folded up his paper,
put it in his pocket, and gave the
Old Settler a withering look, but
?aid nothing. This was plainly
disappointing to the Old Settler,
but after a while he resumed the
"Twenty thousand, hay?" said
he. "I wisht I know'd the direc
tions o' some leadin' heathen over
there, an' I'd send him a letter
tellin' him 'bout the never-failin'
Sugar-Swamp cure fer snake
p'ison, an' tha wouldn't be no use
o' snakeB bitin' anybody in that
pleasin' kentry any more, fer
they'd only waste their p'ison. If
anything ever were a cortion to
snakes, that Sugar Swamp p'ison
cure were ! Gosht'lmighty, how it
could draw! An' that were jist
the trouble with it. It had so
much heft to its drawin' powers
that the danger were that if it got
its hooks outer a feller that had
snake p'ison in him it were liable
to kill him while it were curin'
him. Pervidin', o' course, that
ye wa'n't keerful in usin' on it.
Tho ingrejints o' that Sugar Swamp
snake p'ison cure is a secret ez
nobody kin ever hev outside of our
fam'ly. The prescription were
thunk up by an ancestor o' mine
who kim inter Sugar Swamp w'en
things was skeerce, everything
but b^ar an' snakes. Tha wa'nt
but two bar'l of apple juice in the
hull settlement w'en this ancistor
o' mine sot down there, an' folks
was comin' in ev'ry day all bit up
by snakes, an' consekently havin'
to be filled up with that juice in
a way that were alarmm', that be
in' the only snake p'ison cure ez
were reco'nized 'mongst the 'arly
.settlers o' Sugar Swamp. So this
ancistor o' mine, he got all worked
up over it, seem' that the way
thiogs was goin' the future were
goin' to bo very short, ez fur ez
life bein' pleasant had anything
to do with it, snakes bein' *o
plenty, folks bein' so willin' t? be
bit, au' apple juice bein' so
skeerce. So he up an' says :
"'It's a durn shame,' says
he, 'to be a wastin' good ap
ples, jist 'cause folks won't git
outen the way o' i?nakes ! This
here's got to be stopped. A fe

RUSSIA'S STATE CHURCH.
The Greek Denomination of the
The Hon. Charles Emory Smith,
ex-Minister to Russia, delivered an
address yesterday afternoon at the
Grace Baptist Temple, Broad and
Berks streets, on the "State Church
of Russia." Mr. Smith first gave
a brief sketch of the history , of
the Greek Church and its separa
tion from the Roman Catholic
"I come not to discuss or analyze
the Russian Greek Church," said
he, "but to say something about
the results of my personal obser
vation of some features. The
Greek Church is that part of the
great Christian body which recog
nizes only the authority of the
first seven Ecumenical Councils.
Originally it was united with the
Roman Church. Differences began
to spring up as early as the fifth
century, but the schism was not
fully completed till the eleventh
century. The Greek Church is
practically a federation of churches
without any centre of authority.
There is no Pope in the Greek
Church, but there are Patriarchs
of Constantinople. Antioch, Alex
andria, and Jerusalem, the chief
prelate being known as tue Metro
"The Russian Greek Church em
braces nearly 75,000,000 adherents,
more than tho entire population of
the United States. The Emperor
of Russia is the head of the
Church, but he has no more to do
with its doctrines than the King of
Ital_v or the Emperor of Austria
has with the doctrines of the Ro
man Church. The Emperor is
described as the defender of the
faith. As far as the appointive
power goes, he if? the complete head
of the hierarchy, and the Holy
Synod is made up of his ap

the Roman Church in various dog
mas. They have the same Venera

recognize the sacraments and pay
attention to fasting. But there
are marked distinctions. The
Greek Church denies the primacy
and spiritual supremacy of the
Popes. It recognizes no human
infallibility exoept on the part of
the Ecumenical Council. It main
tains that the Holy Spirit proceeds
from the Father, not from the Son ;
rejects the doctrine of purgatory,
though it recognizes the interces
sion of the Saints.
"The Church has what is termed
a white clergy and a black clergy.
The latter are monks. They are
celibates. But the white clergy
aro required to marry. The white
clergy preponderate. It is from
the^black clergy that all the high
prelates are chosen. The white
clergy are not allowed to exercise
any choice as to their wives. The
selection is made by a Bishop, who
chooses the widow or daughter of
another priest. All the priests
sons must become priests, and the
only possible method of escape is
by entering the army.
"The Greek Church does not
have images, but rather represen
tations of the Savior, the Madonna,
and the saints upon surfaces.
These representations are called
ikons, and those in the edifices are
beautiful and very valuable, being
studded often with precious stones.
In every house and every shop is
an ikon, and when one enters the
door he must take OT? his hat in
respect for the ikon.
"As to the character of the wor
ship ; one never hears a sermon. I
never heard but one Russian heir
arch deliver a discourse, and that
was on an anniversary. The ser
vices consist of mass and music.
Sometimes the music is very
monotonous, but then it will be
come most entertaining and rav
ishing, the grandest melodies and
the sweetest voices that I ever
heard. Women do not take part.
All the singing is by men and boys.
The boys who have the sweetest
voices are selected for the priest
hood and their voices are trained
during their whole life. There is
no instrumental music."

BITTEN BY A CENTIPEDE.
Mrs. Lastonliow Displays Several
Characteristics of the Insect.
BBENHAM, Texas, April 29.
Mrs. Julia R. Lastenhow, the wife
of R. M. Lastenhow, a well-to-do
farmpr of this county, was bitten
a few days ago by a centipede, and
is so singularly affected by the
bite as to puzzle all physicians
who have seen her. The insect
was introduced into the house in a
log of wood, which, being placed
on the fire, became too warm a
hiding place, and it ran from the
.hearth under an article of furni
ture. Mrs. Lastenhow tried to find
it, and after several days' search
concluded that it had escaped and
gave herself no further uneasiness
But on retiring a few nights
after, the lady, altering the posi
tion of the pillows, discovered a
small object beneath one, and, not
detecting what it was, put put her
hand to remove it, when the cen
tipede bit her on the palm and
wrist. It was with difficulty that
she succeeded in detaching the
insect from its hold on her flesh
and was just able to kill it when
she fainted from the agony of the
When first inflicted the sting re
sembled the red appearance of a
place seared by a hot iron, but in
a few hours it began to swell until
the entire arm was of a size equal
to the rest of the lady's body, and
to turn a livid purple with spots
of nearly white with a quantity of
corruption beneath them. Mrs.
Lastenhow now lost consciousness
and began to foam at the mouth,
uttering cries of intense pain, un
til opiates were administered.
After a day or two the swelling
disappeared from the arm, but all
over the sufferer's body the im
pression of the insect's sting
broke out in angrjr marks, as if
burnt in, and remain exceedingly
painful and raw. Mrs. Lastenhow
is still insensible, and has to be
as she manifests a disposition to
indulge in a crawling movement
which is said to bear a hideous re
semblance to the sliding action of
the int-ect, and will snap at and at

Her senses seem affected, par
ticularly her sight, which appears
to ce nearly gone. Physicians can
only explain her symptoms by the
supposition that the poison of the
insect's bite has affected her brain
through the blood, which has re
produced the marks of the Btiug
all over the body. A day or two
ago, during one of her paroxysms,
she seized Dr. Steinbeck's hand
between her teeth and gave it a
severe bite, which soon began to
burn and swell, and it was only
by promptly cauterizing the wound
that the member was saved. It is
thought that it is only a question

"Pop," said little Franky Bill
tops, "tell me a story."
"Well, Franky," said Mr. Bill
tope, "once there was a little boy
whose name was Freddy. His real,
full name was Frederick Timby,
but everybody always called him
"Freddy lived in the city, but
every summer he us?d to go to see
his aunt, who lived in the country
in a little old village. There was
an old church, in this village, and
every Sunday morning Freddy
used to go there. Generally his
father and mother and some of
the other folks from the house
used to go too ; but one Sunday,
just Freddy and his aunt went
"It was a warm day, and the
windows of the church were pull
ed down all around at the top to
let in the air. Freddy looked out
through the open windows, and
saw the sunshine and saw the
branches of the trees swaying, and
heard the leaves rustling, and
somehow it all made him feel very
sleepy, and the first thing, you
know, he was fast asleep. But
Freddy's aunt knew that childreu
go to sleep in church sometimes,
and she was looking out for him
all the time, and when she saw
him nod and nod and nod, she fix
ed it so that when he finally nod
ded clean over, his heaci fell
against her, where he was all safe.
"After a while Freddy woke up
suddenly, as folks do sometimes
without knowing just what wakes
them, and he looked along the va
cant part of the pew in which he
was sitting. You know there were
only Freddy t and his aunt in the
pew, and they sat at one end of
it, so there was a loug vacant
space between them and the other
end. Right square in* the centre
of this space Freddy ? saw a big
grasshopper ; he was sitting there
didn't know whether the grasshop
per was asleep, or what, but he
kept on looking at him, and pretty
soon he knew that the grasshopper
wasn't asleep, for he saw him rub
his right leg up and down against
his side, and then he saw him rub
his left leg up and down against
that side; then the grasshopper
stood perfectly still again. Then
he turned half around right where
he stood and faced toward Freddy,
and just stood there, very still.
But all of a sudden the grasshop
por made a tremendous jump and
landed right on Freddy's shoulder.
Freddy said, 'Oh !'
"It was only a very small word
with only two letters in it, but it
startled the whole congregation
and made the minister stop preach
ing. Everybody looked around
toward Freddy and his aunt. But
Freddy's aunt is one of those peo
ple who always seem to know just
what to do when anything happens.
The first thing she did was to put
her arm around Freddy and draw
him up nearer to her and sort of
turn hiB face in toward her, for she
knew that if Freddy should see all
the people looking at him in that
way it would make him feel bad;
and when she had done this she
just looked straight ahead as
though nothing had happened, as
though she had never heard of
anything happening, and as though
she didn't expect anythiug was
going to happen for the next 700
"The minister had seen right
away that nothing very wonderful
had happened, and he had gone
right on preaching again. When
the people saw Freddy's aunt look
ing ahead in that way they turned
around again and faced toward the
pulpit once more, and then every
thing went on just as it was be

WAS GREAT ON WILDCATS.
He Never Used a Weapon, but
Killed Them Every Time.
SCRANTON, April 28,"Bill Gregory
used to slay more wildcats than
any ten men in Sullivan county,"
said a woodsman." and he never
carried a weapon, neither. Bill
was quicker than a-wildcat, and he
just loved to get wildcats to spring
at him. No wildcat was ever too
spry for Bill. He used to carry a
ht of little darts with him to throw
at wildcats, but they wwe not
weapon f jr they only pricked a
wildcat just enough to make it so
angry that it would spring at him
in self-defence. Bill had a hand
like a boxing glove, and whenever
a wildcat sprung at him he gave it
a blow on the head and broke its
neck every time.
"One day Bill saw a wildcat
worrying the life out of a porcupine
in the woods. He threw darts at
at it till it turned on him, and Bill
braced himself and gave it a swat
that laid it out so stiff that it
didn't have time to be surprised.
Bill once saw the hind end of
that ha took to be a woodchuck
stickiug out of the brush. He gave
it a kick, and the next
instant he found that he
had stirred up a wounded wildcat,
The wilbcat bit through Bill's
cowhide boot and big toe nail, and
when Bill yanked his leg the wild
cat sprang at his chest and clawed
so hard he had no chance to swat
it, so he bit it on the nose. The
wildcat let loose and came again,
and Bill got in his deadly cuff.
"Bill's game was to swat the
wildcat when it was in the air.
Ono time after he had killed
several hundred wildcats in that
way he saw a catamount crouching
for a rabbit. He flung a dart at
it, and the catamount snapped at
the pricked spot, and crouched
again. Bill tickled it with another
dart, and the catamount spied
him, gave a scream and sprang for
his throat, Bill s^nt the catamount

Queer Russian Religious Sects.
M. Tsaknia a Russinn writer has
published an interesting work
entitled "Queei Religious Seets of
Russia," from which it appears that
there are not less than 15,000,000
followers of insane and cranky
notions in the Empire of the Czar.
Tnese communities of devout and
deluded beings are constantly
being enlarged in spite of all
efforts made to the contr. ry by
One af these sects is known as
the "Runaways." As soon as they
embrace^the new faithjthey fly from
their villages and towns, destroy
their identity as much as possible,
and henceforth live as savages.
"The Christs" are another curious
sect. They worship each other!
The chief ceremonies are a crazy
speccies of dancing, yelling as
loudly as possible, and pounding
stones with sticks.
The "Skoptsy" believe in self
mutilation, but will not submit to
amputation, even though it would
save life. Like the "Christs" they
dance and yell for hours without
Still another of these deluded
sects is the "Dumb Boys." Why
they are called Dumb Boys no one
seems to know, but it is a curious
fact that the sect is composed of
both sexes, old men being in the
majority. It is claimed that some
of these aged patriarchs have
not spoken in fifty years, although
perfectly able to do so did they
"Tho Suicides" are a sect led by
M. Souckeliff, who preaches self
destruction as an absolute necessity
to salvation. He is very eloquent,
and it is said that he often leaves
a church with a dozen suicide

No smoker realizes how much
nicotine he has taken into his
mouth in the consumption of a
cigar until he has tried this ex
periment: Fill the mouth with
smoke when the cigar is burning
freely, and breathe it out slowly
through a handkerchief, com
pressing the lips until only a
small aperture remains, as in
whistling. After the smoke has
been exhaled, a distinct brown
stain will be seen on the linen,
and it emits a strong odor, like
that of an old pipe. This is nico
tine, the poisonous principle of
tobacco, and more or less of it is
absorbed through the mucous
membrane every time that a cigar,
cigareite, or pipe is smoked or
tobacco is chewed.

HARPER'S WEEKLY is acknowledged
as standing first among illustrated
weekly periodicals in America. It oc
cupies a place between that of the
hurried daily paper and that of tue
less timely monthly magazine. It in
cludes both literature and news, and
presents with equal force and felicity
the real events of current history and
the imaginative themes of fiction. On
account of its very complete series of
illustrations of the "World's Fair, it
will be not only the best guide to the
great Exposition, but also its best
souvenir. Every public event of gen
eral interest will be fully illustrated
in its pages. Its contributions being
from the best writers and artists in
this country, it will continue to excel
in literature, news, and illustrations,
all other publications of its class.j
