A gentleman -writing of life in Brazil,
In the London Field, "gives tho
that BCorpionB as well as othez
biting and stinging things are too numerous
there to be pleasant. Scorpions
ore frequent travelers, too, Retting on
board ships as stowaways. The writer
says that over a dozeu were killed in his
cabin during one fortnight, brought
there, no doubt, in a box of Espirito
Sauta orchids from Pun mm. Cargoes
of coir, bananas and other fruits aud
vegetables in bulk often introduce them
on board vessels, and in old wooden
ships especially they will remain and
colonize the bulkheads and interspaces.
I got a nip once, and only once. Walking
along the mam deck of a steamer
lyiug in Rio do Janeiro, loading up with
coffee, being barefooted and in tho dark,
I trod, as I thought, on a piece of glass ;
but drawing my foot up instinctively, I
felt tho tickling of a scorpion's tail on
It seemed to have curled up after its
tail. The" local symptoms were about
equal in intensity to the bite of a common
viper, 01 the sting of a mirabunda,
but vith less utional derangement;
tho ulcer was a long time in healing,
There is a story told of a gentleman
in Iudia, who, pulling on his boots one
morning, felt a horrid prickly object in
one of them. With great presence of
mind, instead of withdrawing it, ho
forced his foot violently down and
stamped on it furiously, though enduring
exquisite agony in tho process. But
it was not a centipede, only a small
blacking-brush left there by a caivless
Tho Psylli of Pliny aud othei historians,
as well as their modern descendants,
who swallow live scorpions and
carry thein in their hats next their shaven
crowns, probably deprive them tirst of
their moans of doing harm, as they serve
the venomous serponts with which they
juggle by blunting their stings. It is,
nevertheless, very easy to hold a scorpion,
and possibly to handle them freely,
when accustomed to them.
Killed the Wronir Hens.
An irascible sea-Captain settled down
to Portland life by the Milo of a
man, and the two rot along
very well until ihe hei question eamo
up. Suid the C'apla n:
" I like you as a neighbor, but I don't
Uke your fiens, and if they troublo mo
any more Til shoot, them."
'1 he neighbor studied
ovor tho m.itter some, but knowing tho
.Cautain's reputation weJl by report, he
' Well, if we can't got along any
other way, shoot the hens, but J' 11 take
ir. as a lavor if you will throw them
when dead over into our yard and yell
to my wiio.
All right," said tho Captain.
The next day tho Captain's gun was
Iward, and a dead hen fell in the quiet
man's ard. The next day another hen
was thrown over, the next two, and the
net after three
'Ni," said tho quiet man,
14 eon dn'l you Matter them along a little?
Wo really can t d spose of the
number you are killing.'
" (iivo 'em to your poor relations,"
mplied the Captain, grullly.
And tlio quiet man did. lie kept his
Neighbor. wol supplied with chickens

ne d.t) the Captain said to tho quiet
I have half a dozen nice hens I'm
go'ng to give oti if on' 11 keep quiet
about this Hair."
How is that," said the quiet man.
" Are you sorry because you killed my
Your hens!" said the Captain.
44 Why, sir, those hens belonged to my
wife! I didn't know she had any until

restores, with tho gloss and freshness of youth,
fntlcd or gray hair to a natural, rich brown color,
or deep black, as may be desired. Hy Its aso light
or red hair may bo darkened, thin hair thickened,
and baldness often, though not always, cured".
It checks falling of tho hair, nnd stimulates a.
weak and sickly growth to vigor. It prevents and
cures scurf and dandruff , and henls nearly ovory
dlsoaso peculiar to the scalp. As a Ladies llnir
Dressing:, the Vioou is unequalled ; it contains
neither oil nor dye, renders tho hair soft, glossy,
nnd silken in appearance, nnd imparts a delicate,
agreeablo, and lasting perfume.
Mn. C. P. BiucnEit writes from Kirb;, O., Jul it
3, 1882 : " Last fall my hair commenced falling
out, and in a short tlmo I becamo nearly bald. I
used part of a bottlo of Ayku's Haiii Vioon,
which Btopped tho falling of tho hair, and started
a now growth. 1 have now a full head of hair
growing vigorously, and am convinced that but
for tho usoof your preparation 1 should have been
J. W. Bowkn, proprietor of tho Mc Arthur Ohio)
Enquirer, says : " Avkk's IIaik Vioou is a most
excellent preparation for tho hair. I speak of it
from my own experience. Its use promotes tho
growth of now hair, and makes it glossy and soft.
Tlio Vinon is nlso a suro euro for dandruff. Not
within my knowledge has tho preparation ever
failed to give entire satisfaction."
Mn. An'ous Faiktiairn, loader of tho
Fairbairn Family ' of Scottish Vocalists,
writes from Boston, Mass., Feb. 6, 1880: Ever
since my hair began toglvosilvory ovidoncoof tho
clinugo which fleeting tlmo procuroth, I havo used
Avkk's Hair Vigor, nnd so havo boon nblo to
maintain nn nnpearanco of youthfulncss u matter
of considerable consequence to ministors,
orators, actors, nnd in fact every ouo who lives ia
tho oyes of tho public."
Mrs. O. A. Prescott, writing from 18 Elm St.,
Charlestoicn, Mass., April 14, 1881!, says : " Two
yearfl ago about two-thirds of my hair camo oif.
It thinned very rapidly, and I was fnst growing
bald. On using Ayku's Hair Vigor tho falling
stopped and a now growth commenced, nnd in
about a month my head was completely covered
with short hair. It has continued to grow, and la
now as good as before It fell. I regularly used but
ono bottlo of the Vigor, but now uso it occasionally
as a dressing."
Wo havo hundreds of similar testimonials to the
efficacy of Avkr's Hair Vigor. It needs but a
trial to convince tho most skeptical of its value.
