The most remarkable instance of
rapid growth is said to be recorded by
the French academy in 1729. It was
a boy six years of age, 5 feet 6 inches
in height. At the age of five his voice
changed, at six his beard had grown,
and he appeared a man of thirty. He
possessed great physical strength, and
oonld easily lift to his shoulders and
carry bags of grain weighing two
hundred ponnds. His d?cline was as
rapid as his growth. At eight his hair
and beard were gray ; at ten he tot
tered in his walk, his teeth fell out,
and his hands became palsied; at
twelve he died with every outward
sign of extreme old age.-IHmes and
Old Age Bacteria.
An Italian bacteriologist has discov
ered that old age is caused by what he
terms "old age bacteria" in the tissues
of the body, and asserts that man will
become immortal when some method
has been discovered for expelling these
bacteria from the system. There are

of those ugly blowi

Sir : I have the honor to inform you thal
I have placed your name on the list of ap

Suoh was the answer to his twen
tieth application for a post in that de
partment of the Indian Civil Service.
And he had nothing but his lieuten
ant's pay to depend on, nor any pros
poets worth mentioning ; and he wai
head over ears-not in debt-but ir
love with Lucy Campbell, the onlj
child of the Collector of Bungareeo

was then stationed. And albeit sh<
smiled on him, and kept other suitor!
-including rich old Colonel Grey
beard-at arm's length for his sake,
her parents did not give him any en
couragement, though they liked and
esteemed him. On the whole, then
he had some reason for being in th?
dumps, as he sat in his bungalow,
"chewing the cud of sweet and bittei
His meditations were suddenly cul
short by the cheery voice of his boson:
friend, Captain Finch. "Why, Char
lie, what tho dickens ails you, that
you've cut mess these last three days?'
"Oh, I'm a trifle out of sorts
nothing much," replied his friend.
"Only that the man-eater has beer
making a meal of another post-run
"Why, that's the sixth within the
last nine months," broke in Charlie
"I believe you, my boy," replied
his friend; "and Colleotor Campbell
has offered a reward of 3000 rupees foi
said man-eater's skin. And high time,
too ! Else we shoji find no one tc
carry our letters."
"Where did it happen?" inquired
' 'Why, about ten miles nor'east ot
this place-just where the road divet
into the Scrawat jungle after crossing
the gully. They found the poor fel
low's letter-bag and his bells lying in
the bed of the gully."
"It seems asif those bells, instead oi
scaring the brute as intended, acted
as a signal to him to make ready tc
pounce on his prey."
"True to you, friend Charlie."
"I should dearly like to have a shot
at tho brute."
"No go, my boy ! He's too leery.
Grant and Spurling have both been on
his track; but they couldn't even catch
sight of the tip of his tail."
After a few minutes' more chat
about things in general, the Captain
left the bugalow ; and Charlie Wallace
forthwith shouted to the boy in the
verandah outside :
"Where's Murreem Ali?"
This was his factotum-a native of
the lowest caste, but faithful as 8
"Gone to bazaar, saheeb," answered
"Then go you and buy me a half a

ners carryon their, sticks," said his
master, flinging him a couple of
rupees. "And be quick about it."
Away sped the boy to do his errand.
Meanwhile thc lovelorn Lieutenant
carefully loaded his rino and double
barrelled gun, and then strolled out
on to the verandah to await Murreem
Ali soon made his appearance, with
the boy at his heels. When he was
within earshot, his master called to
him, "That brute of a tiger has killed
another mail-carrier; and now I'm
minded to put a bullet through his

the Lieutenant. "Are you man

"Well, then, ju6t get me a red coat
such as the mail-carriers wear, and
we'll be off at once."
The native took the purse whioh
his master held out to him and re
traced his steps toward the bazaar,
thinking his master stark mad. But

When he returned with the red
coat he found the Lieutenant trans
formed into a fair imitition of a
native by the aid of burnt cork. Tho
Lieutenant donned the coat, loaded
his pistols, thrust them into his belt,
and handed the gun to his servant.
The rifle he shouldered himself The
two thea stole out of the bungalow by
tho back door and gained the high
road by an unfrequented path to
avoid attracting attention needlessly
always a wise precaution when one
goes ont for wool at the risk of coming
For some four or five miies their
road iay through open fields sown with
. maize and cotton. Then they dived
i into the juugle. Here the Lieutenant
bade Ali fall behind and trotted ou
I ahead by himself, lest the tiger should
? "smell a rat. " So on he jogged aione,
j hoping-though not without a qualm
i or two-that the beast would mistake
him for a pott runner and show him
i-*?elf. ,To this end he tied the bolls in
8 bunch to his girdle, and a pretty
jingle they made as he sped onward
! Anon he plunged into a wood of loft;
trees, where the underlying brushwooi
grow thiok enough to harbor a hun
dred hungry tigers within easy reael
of him. The thought made him blanol
a bit ; but nevertheless he pushed OJ
till he reached the very spot wher<
the man-eater had made his last mea
of human flesh. There could be n<
doubt of it, for traces of the poor fel
low's blood were still to be seen oi
the white pebbles in the bed of what
during tho rainy season, became i
foaming torrent. Here Charlie Wal
lace halted, with his rifle at full-cocl
in his right hand, and gazed arounc
Naught stirred. All was silent a?
the grave-oppresively silent. Ah
what noise was that which he hean
behind him? The footsteps of hi?
servant? Impossible! Ali must etil
be half a mile behind him. As tbL
i thought flashed through his mind ht
faced ronnd just in time to see a pail
i of gleaming eyes glaring at him fron
the brushwood. Quick as lightning
he raised his rifle and fired. A wile
howl answered the report, and a hug?
tiger rolled down into the gully, when
it lay for a moment as if stunned.
But it quickly recovered itself, auc
crouched to spring on its assailant.
Had Wallace wavered for half a seconc
ho must have shared the fate of tht
luckless runner. But he whipped oui
his pistol and discharged it point
blank in the animal's face. One ol
3 the slugs entered its eye and pierced
3 the brain, and the ruthless creature
fell seemingly lifeless at his feet;
. then he knew that it must actually
1 have made its spring when ho fired.
i With his second pistol in his hand
J he sat down on the brink of the gullj
1 and mopped tho moisture from hit
* dripping brows. Meanwhile he kept
5 his eye fixed upon his enemy, half ex
pecting to see it riso and renew the
1 attack. But there it lay quite mo
! tionless, and was indeed stone dead.
I Ho had ample time to admire the
> beauty of his sleek cca't before Ali
made his appearance.
"What a marvel!" exclaimed that
worthy, almost breathless with wonder
and admiration. "Heaven has en
abled sahceb to shoot the devil !"
"The question now is, what aro we
to do with the devil, as you call him?"
j said his master. "Can we get a bul
r "Surely!" replied Ali. "At the
next village-not a mile off- where
i every bullock-cart and bullock will be
j proudly at the beok of the saheeb who
3 has destroyed the devil."
"Well, away with you, and fetch
one! One will serve our turn," said
[ the devil-shooter smiling.
I About half an hour later, a loud
shouting proclaimed the approach of
j the vehicle and half the village. As
the poisy crowd drew near, ono old
1 man rushed forward, and, grovelling
at the Lieutenant's feet, exclaimed:
i "Oh, my Lord, my Lord, hast thou
t verily destroyed the devil that de
voured my brother's son?"
j Meanwhile the villagers crowded
> round the carcass of their fallen foe,
and kicked and spat upon it to their
hearts' content. One follow pulled
out a tinderbox and struck a light,
, wherewith he proceeded to singe the
, animal's whiskers. But Ali checked
him with a threat that if he spoilt the
creature's skin he was likely to share its
i fate. Others, instead of venting their
hate on their dead foe, tendered milk
I and fruit and wild honey to the tiger
I queller, or, rather, to the devil
. qa oller, as they deemed him. And,
3are enough, ere long up came a hoary
, priest to lay the spirit of the beast,
lest it should haunt the village and
work far more evil than while clothed
with flesh. They drew a magic circle
; round the carcass, and smeared its
, head with dabs of red paint, and pros
, teated themselves before it, by way of
! soothing the wrath of its patron god
, dess, tho mischief-working Kali. Fin
ally, they wreathed its neck with wild
; flowers, and hoisted it into the eart,
j and marched in procession before it
, to the music of tomtoms and half a
dozen horns. And then, as night
came on, scores of torchbearers
; swelled the throng that marched in
front of the cort.
When they were within two miles
! distance of the Lieutenant's bead
, quarters, they were overtaken by a
stouti6h gentleman riding a powerful
. and spiritod horse. Beining it in
alongside the cart, where 6attheLieu
\ tenant alongside the tiger, ho asked :
, "What's the matter?"
Wallace modestly explained, to the
best of his ability, amid all that din
? of tomtoms, horns and human voices.
The horseman looked puzzled for a
moment. Then he said: "But you're
not a post-runner."
At this moment up rode taree other
horsemen. He turned to ono of them
and whispered something which Wal
lace failed to catch. He then rode off,
. followed by the two other horsemen.
The one to whom he hnd spoken ac
companied the procession, chatting to
the amateur post-runner, till the cars
stopped at the door of Wallace's bun
galow. There ho abruptly said : "An
revoir, Lieutenant Wallace, " and rode
"What on earth does he mean with
his au revoir?" muttered the tiger
queller as he entered his "diggings."
"And how the dickens does he know
my name and grade ?" He had failed
i to observe the diplomatic art with
which the horseman had pumped him
! during their chat.
Scarcely had the tiger-hunter doffed
his red coat, washed off his war-paint,
and donned his ordinary "togs,"when
his boy came in with a note, which
Tho Governor-General begs me to Invite

Dinner at 8 Bharp.
So the frank, plain-spoken horse
man who first accosted him was no less
a person than the Viceroy of India,
the universally beloved and respected
Lord Mayo, who-like Mr. Gladstone
-went here, there and everywhere,
finding out things for himself, instead
of trusting to hearsay.
But far from this refleotion were
Charlio Wallace's thoughts. He was

the Governor-General, but rather with
him in the presence of Ducy Campbell,
whose parents had prudently kept her
out of his way for months ; in fact,

Like all thoroughbred gentlemen,
Lord Mayo had the art, 'ox "second

ease in his presence, except, of course,
sly rogues, who never can feel quite

stiffness or constraint tu at prevailed it.
Nor did the talk once flag, or turn too

After the ladies left the room, his
lordship and the aide-de-camp between

without muoh difficulty, that it was

rather the reckless courage born of
that hope deferred which maketh the

Next morning, as ho sat at break
fast, Charlie received a note addressed
to him in a peculiarly bold hand. He
hastily tore it open and read ;
"Slr : I have the honor to inform you that
I have placed your name on the list of ap
plicants for tho vacant post in the General
Supervision Department. But as your name
heads the list, you may chanco to fl ad this

Up he jumped, snatched up his hat,
and rushed off at the top of his speed
towards Collector Campbell's bunga
low, to pour out his thanks to tho
Governor-General. But he found the
the bird flown. There was some one,
however, to receive him ; some one in

nobleman had read a oertain tale of
true love ; whose course he forthwith
resolved to smooth so far as in him
lay. And he succeeded 60 well, that

For several years experiments have
been made in the German army in the
training of dogs for servioe in the
hospital department. Not long ago
tho well-known animal painter,
Jean Bungartz, was commissioned to
take up the matter, and his recent
report occasioned high praise from
the Emperor and the arny. Tho fir3t
important step was the selection of a
breed of dogs possessing all the quali
ties, necessary for the purpose, viz. :
Obedience, watchfulness, intelligence,
fidelity and porseverence. These
qualities were found in the Scotch
collie in the highest degree, and this
breed was, therefore, selected by Bun
The equipment of the dog consists
of a strong collar with a small leather
pocket for letters, a small waterproof
blanket for his rest at night and two
pockets containing a small surgeon's
outfit, linen, medicines and a small
amount of dog biscuit. The entire
load is less than ten pounds and can
be easily carried by the dog for days.
His services are moot important in
the searoh for the wounded or dead ;
he ofton brings first help to a soldier
fallen in brush or underwood and
completely hidden from sight; he
makes an excellent courier, and runs
from hospital to command or vice
versa, faithfully delivering messages
intrusted to his care as fasla^u'CavaT- '
ryman, with much less danger to both
courier and message. A large red
cross marks each sidepocket, and de
signates his connection with the san
itary and relief corps. He also
carries a small lantern on his
back, to enable the litter bearer to
follow him in the search for the
wounded or dead at night.-Detrot
A Hero ol Ping Yangi
On the morning of the loth of Sep
tember all the gates but one of the
Chinese stronghold of Ping Yang in
Korea had nearly yielded to the Jap
anese attacks, but the Genbu gate,
the strongest position, was still
strongly held by Chinese braves, who
stubbornly resisted the Japanese- of
the Genztin column.
The staff of the column were about
to consult on some other means of
capturing the position when Captain
Mimnra was seen alone rushing for
ward toward the gate. Everybody
who saw him thought that he was
mad. His example was soon followed
by a private, who ran ahead of him.
Before the wondering Japanese officers
could recover from their surprise, the
private had begun climbing the wall
in the obscure oorner of tho oostle
amid a torrent of bullets from tho
Chinese defenders above.
The smoke hid him for a moment,
and when it cleared ho was not to be
seen. His comrades believed him to
have been shot down. But presently
the gate on which the eyes of the
Japanese attacking parties were riveted
was seen to open from within, and
there stood the brave soldier, un
wounded and safe, his sword dripping
with Chinese blood.
The hero of this brave deed was
Jinkichi Harada, a young farmer. He
was promoted at once to the rank of a

AN ALPENA MIRACLE?
AUtS. JAS. M. TODD, OF LONG RAPIDS
DISCARDS HEH CRUTCHES,
In an Interview with n Reporter She Re
views 11er Experience and Tells
the Real Cause o' the Miracle.
(From the Argus, Alpena, Mich.)
We have long known Mrs. Jas. M. Todd,
o? Long Rapids. Alpena Go., Mich. She has
been a sad cripple. Many of her friends
know the story of her recovery; for tho bene
fit of those who do not wo publish it to-day.
Eight years ago sho was taken with ner
vous prostration, and in a few months with
muscular and inflammatory rheumatism. It
affected her heart, then her head. Her feet
became so swollen she could wear nothing
on them; her hands were drawn all out of
shape. Her oye3 ware swollen shut more
than hali the time, har knee joints terribly
swollen and for eightesn months she had to
be hold up to ba dresse 1. Ono limb became
entirely helpless, and the skin was so dry
and cracked that it would bleed. During
these eight years she hal boen treated by a
score of physicians, and has also spent much
time at Ann Arbor under best medical advice.
All said her trouble was brought on by hard
work and that medicine would not cure, and
that rost wai tho only thing which would
ease her. After going to live with her daugh
ter she became entirely helpless and could
not even raise her arms to covor herself at
night. The intoresting part of tho story fol
lows in her own words:
"I was urged to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People aad at last did so. in
three day3 aiter I commenced taking Pink
Pills I could sit up and dress myself, and
after using them six weeks I went home and
eommenced working. I continued taking
the pills, until now I begin to forget my
crutches, and can go up and down steps
without aid. I am truly a living wonder,
walking out of doors without assistance.
"Now, if I can say anything to induce
those who have suffered as I have, to try
Pink Pills, I shall gladly do so. If other
like sufferers will try Pink Pills according to
directions, they will havo reason to thank
God for oroating men who are ?ble to con?
quer that torriblo disease, rheumatism. I
have in my own neighborhood recommended
Pink Pills for the after effects of la grippe,
and weak women with impure blood, and
with good results."
Mrs. Todd is vory strong in her faith in the
curative powers of Pink Pills, and says they
?ave brought a poor, helpless cripple back to
do her own milking, churning, washing, sow
ing, knitting and In fact about all of her
household duties, thanks to Dr. Williams'

Some very interesting experiments
have lately been made iu France by
Dr. Chamonin in the line of boiling
milk to free it from being a means of
infection and contagion. There has
been a great prejudice in this country
against boiled milk for infant feeding,
but the idea that the boiling process
does away with tho nourishing proper
ties and digestibility is done away
with by Dr. Chamouin's experiments.
He fed a number of kittens on boiled
milk and a number on fresh milk.
Those fed on the boiled milk were
twice as fat and healthy as those fed
on fresh milk.
He further carried on experiments
in Paris which assured him that the
infant death rate could be made much
less, were the thousands of infants
hand fed, given boiled milk instead of

What Comes After Death.
A good thing is told in connection
with the recent lectures on theosophy,
in this city. The lecturer, in the
midst of a learned discourse, asked in
"What comes after death?" No one
answered, and after waiting a moment
he repeated with vehemence: "Again
I say, what comes after death?"
Just at that moment the door opened
and in walked one of tho leading un
dertakers of the city and went demure
ly to a seat. The coincidence was too
much for the audience.-Bangor Com

The egg was first laid down on its
side on a plato and the dish moved
about with the hand in a circle till the
egg catches onto the movement and
begins to rotate on a sidewise axis; as
the speed is made to increase it is
gradually brought upon its tip end,
spinning like a top, when the plate

Prince Bismark has a curious super
stition in connection with the number
three, and not without reason. He has
served three German empires ; he has
fought in three wars ; ho has signed
three treaties of peace ; he arranged
the meeting of the three emperors and
established thc triple alliance,
This growing force; at firs: a vague,
laughed at fad ; in the hands of tho
charlatan, a humbug and a nuisance;
yet has more potency than we proba
bly ever dream of. "Hypnotization,"
says Bin et, "can be produced by
strong and sadden excitement of the
senses. The patient becomes hypno
tized, and hence obedient to the hyp
notizer. " Bovis Sidas in The Atlantic
Monthly for February, attributes mob
cruolty and disturbance to hypnotism.
"The mob is hypnotized by a strong,
sudden action, and becomes for a time
obedient to him who hypnotized it ;
that is, to the ring leader, to the hero."
Again Krafft-Ebing tells of a pe
oaliar state, namely, fascination. "In
this state the patient feels herself to
be a pure automaton, and knows her
self as absent from the body, existing
only as an image in the experimenter's
eye. This disappearance of the con
sciousness of personality is of great
interest." A similar state bnt of less
intensity, we find in the mob when
fascinated by its hero ; something ap
proaching the hypnotic state of fas
cination. Again wo find in our courte
that the person who actually put to
death another was acquitted of the
crime while tho hypnotizer under
whose spell the act was done was con
victed and punished as tho real crimi
nal. We sincerely hope, however,
hypnotic influenco will not be added
to that other and threadbare legal
fraud, insanity, to further "cheat the
gallows of its dues."
Another prominent investigator on
hypnotism is Professor Alfred S.
Warthen, demonstrator of medicine in
the University of Michigan. Accord
ing to that eminent authority, The
Medical News, some remarkable re
sults proceeded from Professor War
then's experiments with mttsio on
mesmerism. The patient was first
hypnotized and Wagner's "Kide of the
Walk?re" was played at him on the
piano. Immediately the subject
showed intense excitement; appeared
to be in great agony and he broke out
in profuse perspiration. On awaken
ing from his trance, the patient de
clared that he had not perceived the
music as sound, but as feeling; as if
he were ridiog furiously through the
Another extraordinary effect was
produced on a hypnotized patient by
suddenly changing from the music of
Wagnei to other and inferior strains.
"The subject's face became aBhy pale,
the pulse dropped from 120 to forty
beats per minute and becamo irregu
lar, soft and small ; the respirations
were decreased in number and became
Bighing in character. On being awak
ened the subject said he had been op
pressed by a horrible fear because
everything had suddenly seemed to
cometo an end." The inference is
perfectly plain. Professor Warthen
has established the fact that ^devotees

Value of Our Cereal Crops.
The report of the statistician of the
agricultural department concerning
the area, product and value of the ce
real crops for 1894, which has recently
been published, contains some very
significant figures. The report states
that the corn crop of the year is one
of the lowest on record, the yield per
acre being but 19.4 bushels. The area
harvested in the corn-producing states
has been reduced by severe drought
and dry winds to 62,582,000 acres from
the 78,000,000 acres planted. The
crop has been about 1,212,770,000
bushels, and the estimated value is
fixed at $351,719,000. The wheat crop
is slightly above the average. The
entire product of the country is 460,
267,416 bushels, which is valued at
$225,902,025. This represents the en
tiro.prodnct of 34,882,436 acres. The
rate of yield has been 13.2 bushels per
acre, and the average value per bushel
49.1 cents. The estimstes of the area,
product and value of the other cropp
are as follows:
The estimates for oats are: Area,

Lowell parties are reported to be ex
perimenting with a process for making
metallic yarns for use in carpets.. The
process consists of a foundation of a
metal coating on an inferior surface,
and weaving the strands in certain
proportions. The object is to secure
greater durability and strength than it
is possible to obtain from the use of
yarns made from our animal or vege
table fibers. A non-oxidizable metal
is employed and this is dissolved and
applied to the surfaces of threads, ren
dering them like metal in appearance
and general characteristics. The me
tallic composition is composed of alu
minium, borax, alum, litharge and
was. These compounded with white
lead and one or two other substances
prodnce a metallic coating that it is as
flexible and soft as common paint
would be, yet to all appearances the
covering is as metal, very much re
sembling aluminum. Various sub
stancen can be used for the core or
body of the thread, among others wood
pulp, jute, cotton, flax, etc. The me
tallic coating is applied to the yarns
automatically in a device consisting of
a chamber in which the ingredients
are put, and through which the yarns
are drawn, the coating adhering to the
surface of the threads.-Industrial
