When Lowell beard this he sat down

A Styrian Peasant Superstition
A lawsuit for libel brought by an
apothecary in Pollan, in Styria, against
a young peasant reveals an extraordi
nary superstition prevalent among the
country people. They believe that
apothecaries and doctors have the
right to kill at least one man and one
woman every year in order to make
medicines out of their bodies. An ac
cidental movement of the apothecary
at Pollau, Herr Kobermauser, when
giving medicine to a boy named Putz
led the latter to believe he was going
to be killed. He ran away, but got
such a fright that he fell ill. The in
habitants believed his story and boy
cotted the apothecary, who was at
length compelled to prosecute. Putz
was sentenced to fourteen days' im
prisonment, but his parents, who had
spread the story, were acquitted on
the ground that they had acted in
good faith.-London Standard.
One Use of the Eel.
It is difficult to exhaust the uses of
the eel. Experts in top whipping pro
nounce a dried eelskin an admirable
lash, and tops are by no means the
only victims thereof. There is that
affecting passage in Mr. Pepys' diary:
"April 24, 1663. Up betimes, and with
my salt eel went down in the parlor
and there get -my boy and did beat
him till I was fain to take breath two
or three times. Yet for all I am
afeared it will make the boy never
the better, he is grown so hardened
in his tricks, which I am sorry for,
he being capable of making a brave
man and is a boy that I and my wife
love very well." "Salt eel" appears
to have been a . nautical term for a
rope's end, and it is not certain that
Pepys' instrument of castigation was
actual eels' skin. But the original
"salt eel' laid its mark. - London
The Sense of Smell.
"It is the upper part of the nose that
smells," said a perfumer. "The lining
there is very sensitive and brown in
color, not red, as in 'the lower nose.
en are more sensitive to odors than
women. Scientific tests have shown, I
believe, that, while many men can de
tect the smell of prussic acid even
when there is only one part of the
acid to two mnillion parts of! water
the average woman falls to detect the
smell if there a're less than ten parts of
the acid. Thoufgh the white man is
much less sensitive to odors than the
savage, a prolonged stay in a part of
the world where- smells are few puts a
very fine edge on the sense of smell.
Dr. Nansen has declared that when
returning from the ice world to Franz
Josef Land he knew when he was ap
proaching the assistant he had left
there by smelling his scented soap long
before he saw him. He could, too,
when approaching the hut have given
an inventory of the stores there, as he
smelled everything It contained sepa
rately and distinctly."
