Poison. Among other symptoms I was se

almost past going. The disease got a firm
hold upon my system; my blood was thor

persistent use of it brought me out of my
trouble safe and sound, and I have the

your great blood remedy, S. S. S., and to

CARGOES THAT ARE CARRIED FREE
FROM PORT TO PORT.
Involuntary Passengers That at
Times Travel on Shipboard-Insects
and Animals That Voyage All Over
the Civilized World.
Many strange and weird things in
habit foreign bound ships in the form
of animals and insects that are rarely
suspected and never seen by the ordi
nary passenger. Most people are aware
that the presence of rats on board ship
is inevitnble. whether the vessel be of
wood or iron. Indeed, sailors consider
them safe shipmates and sure signs
that the vessel is seaworthy and not
in danger of sinking.
The sight of rats deserting a ship is
sufficient to discourage any sailor from
going on board for a trip; but, on the
other hand, too many rodents on board
spoil everything. Numbers make them
bold, and instead of staying in the
hold where the cargo is stored they in
vade the sailors' quarters and even
make their apearance in the captain's
But rats are not by any means the
only strange visitors that travel in
ships withput the consent of either
owner or captain. There are many in
sects that migrate from one cuarter of
the globe to another by means of the
vessels which ply between distant
ports. Indeed, the spread of nearly all
kinds of living creatures has been de
pendent on the ships of civilized na
tions. Winged pests and blessings
have been steadily carried to new
countries by this means.
Not long ago a ship from one of the
tropical countries was followed by a
swarm of butterflies, which persistent
ly hovered round the rigging of the ves
sel until the shore was lost in the
mists; then the insects alighted on the
masts and decks. A few disappeared
in the night and were destroyed in the
water or reached shore safely. Some
of the others hid away in the cabins
and hold of the ship.
After a trip of some thirty days the
vessel reached England, and from their
hiding places in the ship a few of
these butterflies emerged and flew
ashore. Thus an entirely new species
of butterfly was introduced into the
country. Cockroaches are too- ancient
an importation to be worthy of more
than a passing notice. Grain carrying
ships are overrun with weevils, and
these grubs do an immense amount of
harm to the cargoes.
Ships engaged in fruit carrying from
warm countries are often visited by a
miscellaneous collection of queer crea
tures. Concealed in the bunches of
bananas/there may be poisonous rep
tiles and insects that have traveled
half round the globe. They may sting
or bite the hand of some receiver of
fruit or they may be killed before they
have inflicted any harm. Sometimes,
however, they escape ashore, and if the
new country proves congenial to thei
growth and multiplication they may in
a very short time establish a progeny
that will eventually spread in all di
rections. Poisonous snakes of the trop
ics have thus been introduced into
lands where none was ever known to
exist before. Moths of a destructive
nature constantly come to this and
other countries in the fruit slrips, and
their spread is only a matter of time
They are visitors that cause zmo trou
ble to the sailors, who are very often
not even aware of their presence on
board, but they prove expensive to the
farmers and inhabitants of the land
where they become established.
-Even flowers and plants from other
countries bring with them new mi
grants in the shape of brugs, bees and
other insects. Concealed in the blos
som or curled up leaf of the plants,
they remain dormant during the long
voyage, but when they reach a land
where climate and surroundings are
conducive to their propagation and
active growth they come forth to estab
lish themselves in the land of their
Thus from the West Indies we have
brought insects by the hundreds con
ealed in the beau'tiful Easter lily
blossoms, and from all parts of the
world strange insects bidden away in
the cuplike bloom of orchids, which
hunters risked their lives to secure,.
hav~e been introduced in our midst to
work destruction or add to our pleas
res. Not all visitors on our incom
ing ships are obnoxious. Some are of
distinct value to our country, and their
introduction in this secret way very
often works out successfully problems
of great public and commercial value.
Most travelers to India and China
will remember the revulsion of feeling
with which they were seized on
first detecting a scorpion or mosquito
in their soup at luncheon or dinner.
Some of the liners which are kept con
stantly for the. traffic from Aden to
Bombay and known as the Red sea
boats are never free from these pests.
With the tramp ships that visit the
south Pacific monkeys and parrots are
the most common visitors. It is a very
frequent occnrrence, after a "tramp'
has not touched at any port for a weeki
or so, for the sailors to find that their
food is continually being stolen. They
know at once that monkeys' are on
board. A vigorous search is instituted,
with the result that at least o11e mon
key is shortly afterward foua:d, an~
sometimes half a dozen. Thes~e ani
mais resist capture at first, but soon
accept the inevitable and becom~e in a
very short time great chums with the
saiors. When England is reached
,ack takes them ashore and dispose
of the-n for ready cash to diealers ii
the neighborhood of the docks. Man3

The board also decided to include
in the next teachers' examination,
questions from Hughe's Mistakes ir

ment and Current History, and rec
ommend that the teachers read the

' Never. before have I been in such a position to get
goods like I~am getting them now. The fall in the price
of cotton has certainly changed things up here, so
many merchants from the South are not coming to New
_ York this spring or not until very late. and I never have
3 had such values offered me. Thousands and thousands of
dollars worth of goods were bought by these wholesalers;
abefore cotton went down and now as the goods are on
hand and must be sold, they are cutting the price on some.
N things to almost half and there are so many small lots or
jobs-lots that they offer as baits to try and do the busi
I wish I had one hundred stores to buy for. I have .
just closed a trade on a lot of shoes at less than the actnalb .4
sales cost. These are only baits they are offering to-attch
me on regular goods or to get all my business. I be've
bought hats so cheap that if .after I get'-home and" get:._ !
them in if any one will come to me and show me that they.
3 are not able to buy a hat I will gladly give him one. -
I have made arrangements with Mr. Finlayson\of '450
Broadway to handle those "oldefolks" Bibles at $1. _
have big lot of them. The people down there-need not
lose a 2-cent stamp and take the chances of losing -their
dollar in the mails, but just send or go to J. W. Mo
LEOD'S on Levi block and get -one and examine it before
they buy it.
I have bought about 300 Ladies' Hats, trimmed and&
untrimmed, at just half price.
Dry goods are cheapers than 5c. cotton. I have z .
Sbought about 200 pieces of real nice wide. colored Lawn

The whole city is wrapped in snow about eight in

Worshipers of Strange Gods.
Snake worshipers are more , imer
3us than river worshipers in the Pun
jab. They have always been a large
denomination in heathen countries.
Why they worship snakes is a problem
that has been frequently discussed to
mo particular purpose. But people who
worship owls, bats, lobsters, rats and
mice will worship anything, and per
baps anake worshipers are so common
merely because snakes are so widely
distributed and so far from exclusive
in their habits. If a man worships an
opossum or an ornithornycus, he must
go to Australia to do so, but serpents i
are everywhere. So is the earth (Prithi),
and the earth, as Hertha. Demeter and
under many other names, has never
Even the untutored Pawnees are
earth worshipers and bury articles by
way of sacrifice, ivhich is more eco
nomical than burning them, as they
can be dug up again. The ancestral
moun'd is a good deal adored in the
Punjab. In Scotland it became the
fairy hill. as at Aberfoyle, and was
treated witli conspicuous respect in
times comparatively modern. The
church was usually built as near it as
possible, perhaps to counteract the in
fluence of the ancestral mound or to
acquire any local sacredness that might
be going.-London News.
The Ballot and Offee.
In 1777 it was written into the con
stitution of Vermont that "the house
of freemen of this state shall consist
of persons most noted for wisdom and
virtue, to be chosen by ballot, by the
freemen of every town in this state."
Time and conditions have lowered
our standard. We are content with
average wisdom and average virtue,
and in years of apathy virtue and wis
dom are quite forgotten, and we elect
whom the machine nominates. Rota
tion in office, party control of nominat
ing machinery, the ambitions of cor
porations and of party leaders-these
are the forces that move the pawns on
the legislative chessboard. Under the
political conditions which the majority
of the voters tolerate can we expect
the legislature of a state to be com
posed of the best men of the com
munity? And we know that the real
danger of the democracy is the with
drawal of intelligent and humble men
from public duties.-S. P. Orth in At

Georgo Reno, an American newspa

did not get on well with, the managing
editor, a former Chicago physician.
They disliked' each other extremely,
and the editor took particular pleasure
in mangling Reno's copy beyond all

ed at some blue penciling that was
done. "I recognize your right to edit
my stuff, doctor," said he, "but I must
beg you to do so in such manner that
you will not split all of the infinitives.
In this Instance you have made my
copy over into a bundle of phraseolog

erudite managing editor: "You seem to
be worrying yourself over a mere

replied Reno after a moment of
thought, "is an attachment used on

becoming entangled in briers or creep

experience, but is not mine. I have
seen' woodcocks when flushed in such

were forced to cease flying and drop to

in fying. I .remember one old fellow
that sat hidden before the estand of
one of my setters until I almost step

my face, got tangled in a clump of
fronweed and fell at my feet. Had I
been so disposed I could have caught
him in my hands, but my desire was to
see if he was injured. and a moment
later he proved that he was only a
