CAN CURE SNAKE BITES.
Turnersville, a village in Fauquier
county, near the Blue Ridge, was great?
ly excited on Saturday by the announce?
ment made by Walt Simons, an old her?
mit mountaineer, that he can cure snake
bites. Walking into the village hotel,
he deposited a soap-box punctured with
air-holes on the barroom floor.
"I will bet $100 to a chew of old
plug," he said to the assembled loung?
ers, "that I can cure any known case of
snake bite in ten minutes, bar none."
Nobody offered to bet,and the old man
declared he would prove his claim any?
how. First he demanded that a cat be
brought to him and bitten, to prove
that the snake's fangs had not been ex?
tracted.' This was done and the cat
soon succumbed. Following this un
jpleasant preliminary, Simmons took
the larger of the reptiles from the box,
bared his right arm and grasped the
snake in the middle of the body, so that
it could easily twist itself about aud
strike. He hardly touched the snake
before it savagely attacked the flesh
bared so temptingly, and to the horror
of the on-lookers, struck Simons half a
Dropped the snake into the box, Sim?
ons took out its companion, and delib?
erately held it up so that it could strike
his cheek. Then he lowered the ugly
head until on a level with his throat,
when it promptly bit him under the
chin. Letting the snake exhaust itself,
Simons coolly tacked the lid of the box
on, and, lighting bis pipe, awaited re?
sults. They were soon apparent in the
swelling of Simons' throat, neck, face
Refusing all offers of whisky, Simons
took some odd shaped blocks of white
wood from hi3 pockets and laid tbem
carefully over the places where he had
Even while the crowd watched the
swelling and discoloration began to dis?
appear, and in ten minutes' time there
was not a trace left of the attacks of the
snakes. Strangest of all, the blocks,
which were of a porous appearance and
dotted with hundreds of minute spiral
markings, showed no evidence of hav?
ing absorbed the venom, and were as
white and ciean as before using.
Simons says the markings are pieces
of a plaijt pasted securely on the block.
He refused to reveal its character. He
has sold several hundred of the blocks
at high prices.
It Broke the Engagement.?das.
Calkins is the son of a well-known
farmer, who lives about nine miles
from Brooksville, Ky. He was engag?
ed to marry Miss Mary Calder, daugh?
ter of a neighbor. There marriage was
to take place next month. About a
week ago Calkins drove over to see his
sweetheart. He hitched his horse and
started up the walk to the front door.
Near the veranda stood the girl, but at
the same time a big mastiff sprang at
him. Calkins sought refuge in an ap?
ple tree, where he was held at bay by
the dog. The girl, overcome by the
ludicrous aspect of the situation, laugh?
ed. Calkins, annoyed and angry, call?
ed to have the dog driven away, but
the young woman could not stop laugh?
ing to do it, and the lover became in?
censed. Finally the dog was led away
by the girl's mother and Calkins came
down from bis perch. He departed
without speaking to the girl. She
wrote a letter of apology to him, but
he refused to accept it, claiming that
the dog had been purposely set upon
him. Calkins demands $2,500 dam?
Not Foegotton.?The Charleston
Netvs and Courier remarks that if the
Conlederate cause is a "Lost Cause," it
is evidently not a forgotten one, judg?
ing from the number of Con?
federate re-unions held this year,
especially in Virginia. On the 3d
instant there was a Confederate
reunion at Fairfax. On the 21st in?
stant there will be a reunion of the
Eighth Virginia Infantry on Ball's
Bluff, near Leesburg, which will be the
sixth Confederate reunion held this
year in the three counties of Loudoun,
Fauquier and Fairfax.
