Rattlesnake Poison.?Tho reptile division of
the Smithsonian Institution have commenced a
series of experiments designed to discover a
chemical antidote for rattlcsnako poison. It is
anthoritively stated that whisky will not bo one
of the antidotes upon which experiments will be
made. Four largo and belligerent rattlesnakes
have been received from the Blue Ridge Mount?
ains of Virginia, and a number of rabbits and
pigeons are in cages and pens awaiting martyr?
dom in tho cause of science. Tho method of ec
curing tho venom from the snakes is simple,
though probably a trifle wearisome to the snakes
as well as dangerous to the investigator. A snake
is seized just behind tho head, and when suffi?
ciently excitod a small piece of raw cotton is
pushed into his mouth, aud into this his snake
ship strikes his fangs to bis heart's content. The
venom, an odorless, amber-colored fluid, is ab?
sorbed by the cotton, which is afterward soaked
in glycerine, and in this way a solution of rattlc?
snako poison, about five per cent, strong, is ob?
tained. The subjects aro inoculated with this so?
lution by means of a hypodermic syringe, and the
experiments just commenced at tho Smithsonian
are to discover some antidote which, applied to
the wound, will neutralize tho poison and prevent
f?tal results. The first antidote experimented
with will be a ono per cent, solution of perman?
ganate of potassii; but tho investigation will ex
lend to many other chemicals. Tho experiments
made yesterday and thoso to bo made to-day were
designed to ascertain tho exact amount of tho so?
lution necessary to cause death. Next week the
experiments will be directed toward tho discovery
A Scotch Centeeijoap.i> Yacht.?A now
ccotch yacht to wrest tho America cup lrom the
Volunteer is already on papor. The plans wore
mado for Mr. George Clark, ot Newark, by a
.Scotchman who has been in this country several
months studying tho points of our centre-board
boats, and the plan3 have been sent to Scotland.
It is asserted by thoso who c'.aini to know all
about it, that tho boat will bo equipped with a
centreboard and will be constructed on the Amer?
ican plan, Mr. Clark is a nephew of William
Clark, tho millionaire thread manufacturer of
Newark, and i9 interested in tho thread works.
Ho and his relatives woro tho projectors of tho
Thistle and aro her chief owners.
Is It Not Singular
that consumptives should he the least ap?
prehensive of their own condition, while all
their friends are urgiDg and beseeching them
to be more careful about exposure and over?
doing. It may well be considered cue of
the mo3t alarming symptoms of the disease
where the patient is reckless and will not
believe that he is in danger. Reader, if you
are in.this condition do not neglect the only
means of recovery. Avoid exposure and
fatigue, be regular in your habits, and use
faithfully of Dr. Tierce's "Golden Medi?
cal Discovery." It has eaved thousands
who were steadily failing.
