City Marshal Rearden had eight or ten
men employed in S'. Mary's Park y ester-

should have been done by the city some
weeks ago, while the weed) were in bloom.
But even now it is well that it is being
done, for the Park looked wretched before,
while now, where the weeds have been cut
down, it presents a inviting appearance. By
to-morrow the Park will offer unusual
pleasures to thousands of people.

Of courso I was anxious to sco them,
and was about to go to tho gate to tako
a look at them when they all catno
right iu tho parlor. They wero u
picturesque-looking baud, womou
dressed ia bright red, green, and yel
low dresses, and had their hair banged
in such a style that I thought at tho
moment that they had either tried to
imitate Langtry or Langtry had copied
from thorn. It was rnther hard to de
ckle. Those- wandorers aro tho great
est thieves imaginable, and will steal
whatever they can lay their hands on,
rind tho sorvauts had all they could do
to watch them, as they went here and
there. At last they left, having satis
lied their curiosity, and traded their
blankets, etc. After they wero goue
tho conversation turnod on Indians,
whoreupou Dona Refugio, tho lady of
the house, pointed to a hill seen in the
distance, aud which was called "La
Loma de los Novios," or tho "Bridal
hill," and related how about lifteen
years ago a beautiful young Mexican
girl, tho daughter of ouo of tho peons,
was coming from tho town after her
wedding, accompanied by her parents
and a few friends. Tho brido nnd
groom were, according to their custom,
on tho saruo horso. 1'ho friends at tho
hacienda who had heard of her coming
went to meet tho little party. They
saw them in tho distance, but just as
they woro passing a little hill a band of
wild Indians surprised them. They
fought bravely, but wero overpowered,
and the brido was torn from her hus
band's arms, who foil dead pierced by
many arrows. No ono escaped; all
wero killed except tho young girl,
whom they carried off. She, however,
managed to get away from them, and
returned to the hacienda a maniac, aud
died very soon afterward. Sinco that
time tho peons have always culled that
hill "La Loma do los Novios." Thero
they say that up to this day a figure on
horsebuck is often seen galloping wild
ly hack and forth during tho moonlight
nights. The peons lirmly believo it to

Knocking Out a Dude.
The circus agent was cooling his rosy
noso in beer-foam, but ho pulled it out
quickly to reply to tho Detroit 1'ost re
porter s question about tlie docility of
tho sacred white elephant, "Light of
Asia." "As tractable as a dog," ho
began. "Why, you never saw any
thing liko him in tho elephant line in
your life. Never had to stab him onco
with tho elephant-hook since ho has
been with tho show. Follows his keep
er around like tho lamb trailed Mary.
It astonishes mo to see how meekly ho
submits to tho indignities that aro
heaped upon him. There he stands,
day aud night, like a bump on a log
while peoplo aro twisting his tail, jab
bing him with canes and umbrellas,
and sticking pins into him to seo if his
hide is genuine. No, I never saw him
mad but once; that was in Buffalo. A
pair of tho gayest looking dudes you
ever saw were examining liim. Ouo of
'em probed tho elephant in tho ear
with his umbrella and said to his mate,
"Say, chappy, he's deuced white now;
isn't ho, old fellah?" 'Yaas, but ho's
such a blooming quiet beggar. I wish
that show fellah'd shoo him up.'
" 'Yaas,' said tho lirst dudo as ho
poked his bamboo cauo up tho ele
phant's trunk. About a foot of the
cano disappeared. Tho olephant gave
a snort of rago which was followed by,
a sound as of some ono hitting a balo
of cotton with a pieco of lire-hose."
"What was it?" inquired tho inter
ested reporter. '
"Why tho elephant had slapped that
dudo on tho jaw with his trunk and sent
him turning cartrwheols clear across

"When they picked him out of tho
sawdust ho insisted that his back and
legs wero broken, but outsido of a

Bitten r.y a Cobra.
Among many instunoes of anake-bite
poistfuing I havo seen was a strong
young Brahmin of 20, woll-known to
iuo, who had been bitten during the
uight while watching his maizo crop.
Fire I knew of it they had brought him
into my compound in front of the bun
galow. As yet he walkod quite stead
ily, only leaning slightly on tho arm ol
another man. There was that peculiar
drowsy look in his eyes, however, aa
from a strong narcotic, which indica
ted his having been bitten for some
time, and left but little room for hope
now. Ho could siill clearly tell me
particulars. Ho had been bitten, ho
said, on putting his foot to tho ground,
while moving off his charpoy in the
dark, but, thinking tho bito was that
of a nou-poisouous snako, had give no
moro heed to tho matter, had gone to
sleep again, till ho was awoke by his
friends coming in search of him. With
some difficulty I was nblo to find tho
bito very faint, no larger than tho
prick from a pin, but still tho unmia
takablo double mark of tho poison
fangs. Ho folt tho poison, he said,
gradually ascending tho limb, and
pointing to a part just above tho
knee, whero lie felt it had already
reached, tho limb bolow that being, ho
said, benumbed and painless to the
touch, liko tho foot when "asleep." I
gave him the U3ual remedies, and kept
him walking to and fro but gradually
his limbs seemed to bo losing thofr
power of voluntary motion, and his
Lead was beginning to droop from tho
overpowering drowsiness that waa
surely gathering over him. At inter
vals ho pointed out the poison lino
steadily rising higher, and was still
able to answer questions clearly on be
ing roused. At length it seemed to bo
of no uso torturing him further by
keeping him moving about, nnd he was
allowed to remain at rest. Shortly af
ter this, while being supported in a sit
ting posture, all at once, without any
premonitory sign, ho gavo ouo or two
long sighs, and life ceased, about an
hour after he hail himself walked into
the compound. Thero was something
terrible real in this faculty of pointing
out, each stage of tho ascending poison
(as the snake pationt always can) that
was gradually bringing him nearer and
nearer to death, with tho prospect of
only another hour or half-hour of life
remaining to him; and yet tho patient
does not seem to realize this with the
keenness that an on-lookcr does, prob
ably from tho poison benumbing at tho
same time tho power of tho mind a3
well as of tho body. All Ihc Ytar
A Horrible Picture.
Tho Southern Dental Journal of this
city is having a cut engraved of such
an incredible character that it will bo
difficult to convince many persons of
its genuineness. Tho photograph from
which tho cut is to engraved repre
sents nn old man who is sitting lor his
portrait, and holding in ono hand tho
front half of his skull.
When tho beholder recovers from his
first astonishment nnd horror, tho con
viction forces itself upon him that the
party sitting for tho picture 13 looking
with ono eye, his only ono, in a rather
admiring way upon tio fragment of
skull. Beyond the old man's blindness
in one eyo he scemod to bo all right,
with tho oxception perhaps of his un
usually bald head. After tho reporter
had gazed at this monstrosity a mo
ment he ventured to point out tho ab
surdity of tho picture.
"That is just where you aro mis
taken," said a gentleman present.
"Tho picture is as natural as life. Tho
man who sat for it lives near Birming
ham, Ala. Some timo ago, while in an
epileptic fit, ho fell into tho tiro, his
head remaining thero about fifteen
minutes. lien rescued no was so
badly burned that death was thought
to bo inevitable. Tho physicians did
their best, however, but iu tho courso
of timo it was found that half of his
skull, beginning under tho eyo lost in
tho tiro ami exteuding over tho top, was
looso and about to como off. A skill
ful dentist sawed all this portion of the
skull away, and preserved it ns you
seo it in tho picture. Fortunately a
thick membraneous growth had fonnod
under tho looso skull, and protected
tho brain. Tho man is living and
likely to live for years. That is the
w hole caso, and if you ever go to Birm
ingham you will soo tho only man in
tho world who is ablo to fan himself
with haif of his skull!"
Tho dazed reporter took ono moro
look at tho photograph and hastily
took his departure .S7. Lou's Itepub

A few months ago a young man who
had been in the employ of an express
company at a point iu Wisconsin loft
his position and homo on account of
failing health, and went to Florida with
tho hope of receiving benefit from the
change of climate. About a week ago
ho intended returning to his Northern
home in a short time", Lut thought bo
fore leaving tho land of (lowers ho
would send a box of onitigcs to his rel
atives nnd fiiends in Wisconsin. The
oranges were brought hero from Flor

having been franked through. From
here to their destinatitn they wero to

young man who had shipped tho or
anges had written a letter to tho Amer
can explaining the fact that the oranges
had been shipped over tho Adams, aud
requesting the American people when
they arrived to put a frank, which ho
enclosed in his letter, on tlie box, and
forward that, adding iu conclusion, "I
will bo passing through Cincinnati on
my way homo in a fow days, and will
call upon you." As tho clerk in the
American Express office was reading
tho letter a lot of transfer freight from
tho Adams was brought in, and he was
asked to sign for it. As ho., signed, ho
