THK PAIL, CJAIKO BULLETIN; FRIDAY MORNINC SEPTEMBER 12, 1884.
The hog Cared Himself.
A special dispatch , from Williams,
port, la., contains tho following re
markable snako story: John Davis
and Goorfjo Miller drove from Collona
ville to this city on Monday. When
they were crossing tho mountain at a
place known as the Old Hermit's, a
valuable coach dog which accompanied
them ran off : into tho woods. Soon
nftorward they heard him yelping in a
poculia? mannor. Iioth men jumped
from the wagon and hurriod in the di
rection of the crios. They came in
sight of the dog in a small hollow, and
found him in a light with several rattlo
snakes, which surrounded him on a
large flat rock, and struck him from
every side. Miller and Davis each
soized a long club and went to tho
dog's assistance. They killed eleven
rattlesnakes, and many others escaped
among the rocks. The largest one was
four feet long, and had 17 rattles.
While the men wero busy cutting off
tho rattles of tho snakes they had
slain, Miller was overcomo by the
peculiarly offensive odor that character.
Izes rattlesnakes, and Davis was
obliged to help him away from tho
spot It was several minutes before he
revived from the effects of the poisoned
air. The dog was nowhere to bo seen.
Davis went back into the woods to look
for him. In passing by the spot
where the snakes had been killed, he
aw a number of live ones, which had
come out of their holes among the
roeka, gliding around their dead com
panions, springing their rattles, and
every motion denoting fury. Davis
beat a retreat, and went off in another
direction, calling his dog. Suddenly
he came upon tho dog, with its body
imbedded in a mire hole in a swampy
spot. Its head alone was above the
surface. Dogs bitten bv rattlesnakes
instinctively seek such places and bury
themsolves in the mud. Old snake
hunters say that if a dog is able to find
swamp-mud and covers himself with
it, it will invariably draw out tho pois
on. Davis left his dog in the swamp,
and drove on to this city with Miller.
Last evening the dog arrived home, ap
parently none tho worse for its en
counter with tho venomous reptiles, al
though It must have been bitten by
them many times. Tho spot where the
snakes were killed is a famous rattle
snake den. A hunter, known as
"Twoline," lived in tho hut near tho
den fur many years, and killed scorw
of its inmates annually, frying out the
oil and selling it to people who came
long distances to obtain it, the belief
in its eilicacy as an ointment being uni
versal in that neighborhood.
A Mexican Tragedy of long Ago.
High up in a canyon, about CO miles
from Monterey, the , traveler on the
ferro carril sees the ruins of an ancient
"casa," whose crumbling walls are
usually mistaken for one of the numer
ous foriilications left in Gen. Taylor's
wake. Hut this ghostly place has a
sadder history. It was the scene of a
midnight tragedy, the actors of which
if stories be true still prowl about
the premises, though their bodies have
been dust for a hundred years. The
history, in brief, is this,: A high-spirited
Spaniard lived there, who inherited
all the jealousy, suspicion, and bad
blood of his race. His beautiful wife
discarded another suitor to marry him,
and the jilted lover determined on
revenge, lie acted the part of Iago,
and caused Othello's ear to be filled
with cunning tales of his own inven
tion. Joalousy once roused in sonihern
blood knows no bounds but death. The
infuriated husband carefully devised
his plans, feigned business in Mon
terey, but caused fleet horses to be
stationed every few miles along the
road. During the silent watches of
the night he returned, murdered his
wife in her bed, and by dint of hard
riding accomplished the 1G0 miles be
fore daylight. Being found in
Monteroy in the .morning, nobody sus
pected him of the crime tiii, long after
ward, discovering tho plot and his
wife's innocence, bo plunged his dag
ger into the enemy's heart and then
into his own. The orphaned children
were taken to Saltillo and cared for by
tho church, and the descendants of tho
actors in this "o'er-true tale" to-day
represents one of the most prominent
families in Coahuila. The deserted casa
still stands as a monument to tho poor
Desdemona, and the venturesome who
havo visited it assert that a "woman in
white" may be seen fluttering about
the moldy halls in the moonlight
An Early Wrltlng-Papcr.
Manv centuries before Christ, Numa
left writings upon the papyrus, whence
our name, paper, is itemed, mis
plant, which was revered as sacred by
the old Egyptians, grows abundantly
in shallow streams and marshes in tip
per Egypt and Syria. Bruce found it
growing in the River Jordan, and
noticed a curious - faot, that it always
presented the sharp, angular sido of
its pear-shaped stem to the swift cur
rent The stem is eight or ten feet
high, two inches in diameter, and
crowned with a fringe of hair-like
loaves, which circle a blossom of slendor
spikelets. Beneath tho brown sheath
which envelops the root-stalk of this
dark-green plant lie other sheathes
which are very transparent These,
when split into thin leaves and dried in
tho sun, were glued together, and
formed the roll of papyrus, on which
many of the ancient writings have
come down to us. This paper was
both flexible and durable. Specimens
from Pompeii can be seen in the
museum at Naples. In the fifth century
papyrus paper, of which many varieties
existed, was largely manufactured at
Alexandria, and ranked high in the
commerce of nations. Its use continued
until about seven or eight centuries
ago. From "Paper: lis Origin and
Uistory," by Chas. E. Bolton, in St.
Nicholas for August. !

The second volume of Chevalier
WikolTs memoirs contains a chapter
devoted to Fanny Ellsler, which is re
produced in tho New York Tdegrum

the account of
Fanny debut in New
Tho eventful day of tho ordeal came,
and a large concourse collected beforo
tho theater hoars beforo tho doors
opened. I felt a little nervous, but
concealed it from Fanny. I had no
apprehension of failure,' but the result
might not realize my hopes. I escort
ed lier to the carriage when she was
starting for the theater, and I remark
ed she was ghastly palo and her voico
very tremulous. The first farce was
half over when I strolled into Fanny's
room, assuming a listless air. She
was dressed for the "Craeovienne,"
and looked very bewitching. She had
rouged her cheeks, so tho paleness had
disappeared. She was standing in the
wings when the curtain rose. The
houso was breathless with curiosity.
"Now," and I spoko encouragingly,
"en avant Do the best you can du
She appeared. Such a shout I never
heard. Tho men waved their hats, the
women their handkerchiefs, and cheers
of welcome resounded on all sides.
Fanny seemed to recoil before it The
music struck up and she began. I saw
she was making desperate efforts, but
nono of her buoyancv, her usual elan,
was there. She finished, and as tho
curtain fell the cries of an encore were
deafening. I went up to her and said:
"Very well; but you can do better
"Yes," she answered firmly, "I can
and will. If they applaud such danc
ing as that I will astonish them beforo
the night is over."
I saw sho was coming to herself, and
felt relieved, and sho repeated tho
"Cracovienne" with far more grace and
Tho ballet began with an exhibition
of Sylvain's disciples, and they acquit
ted tbomselves so well as to bo much ,
applauded. Of a sudden Fanny boun 1
ed on the stage. A murmur of sur
prise and admiration ran through the
house. They now beheld the fair
creature their fancies had painted. Her
perfectly shaped head, her lovely bust,
her exquisite limbs and tiny feet, her
fleecy white skirts floating in the air,
seemed more a vision of graco and
beauty than a reality. Sho danced,
and the rapidity, variety, and brillian
cy of her pas and twinkling evolutions
far eclipsed all their imagining. Her
wondrous grace revealed in the sim
plest movement heightened tho cfl'ect
Gradually the audience yielded to the
sorcrress, aud abandoned themselves
to tho wildest delight amounting at
times almost to frenzy. Tho enthusi
asm was univorsal and knew no bounds.
Fanny really did wonders. Never be
fore jin Paris or London had she execut
ed such feats. Her acting was on a
par with her dancing. Her pantomime
was so expressive and intelligent that
people were almost unconscious sho
was not ' talking. When the curtain
finally descended a ' hurricane of ap-
Jdauso brought her repeatedly beforo
t" I see no reason' why I should not
mention, in connection with her first
appearance, that there wero threo
youug men, then unknown to fame,
who, naving failed to seeure seats in
the boxes resolntely fought their way
into' the pit to the serious detriment
of their coats and hats. The pluck
and determination then displayed
have often since been displayed on
much grander occasions.
Two Clever Col Hps.
If you should visit Central Park some
fine morning you might see young Shep,
the collie that is being trained to take
the place of old Shep, the eighteen-year-old
veteran, at his lessons. Ho
is never whipped, not even when he
does wrong or makes mistakes, be
cause that breaks the spirit of a collie,
as, indeed, of any other kind of dog,
and a shepherd dog must of all things
be brave. When ho doesn't carry out
an order correctly, or in such a way
that the sheep can understand him,
old Shep is sent with the same order
and Shop Junior is made to keep still
and watch him until it is executed.
His first lesson is simply to guard a hat
or a coat or stick thrown upon tho
grass by the Shepherd, and he is left
out witli it sometimes until late in the
evening to show him the importance
of fidelity, the very first essential in a
shepherd dog. Next ho is taught to
gather the sheep, to take them to the
right, then to tho left After this ho is
sent on tho trail of a lost sheep, with
instructions to bring it back slowly.
The most important lesson, and one
young Shep has not yot learned, is that
cj going among the flock and finding out
it any ol tnem are missing. Inis, as
may be imasrined, is by no means an
leasv task with a flock of eighty-two
ewes and sixty-nine lambs, tint old
Shep can do it for ho knows every
member of the flock, though to tho
ordinary observer they all look almost
exactly alike. Indeed, old Shop can,
if his master, the shepherd, is not mis
taken, perform a feat more wonderful
than this. The shepherd says that
Shep, when uncertain whether some of
tho flock have not strayed up the bridle
path on their way home, while he was
busy in keeping troublesome boys
away, will take iiis stand at the gate
of the fold and touch each sheep with'
his fore-paw as it passes in. At such
times he has the air of a farmer count
ing his cattle as they como home at
night, and he wears an expression as
if his mind wero occupied with an in
tricate sum in addition. Whether he
is really counting the sheep or not can
not be said positively; but ho has been
known, after noting each sheep as it
passed, to rush oft up the bridle-path
and return with a straggler. This does
much to prove ' that tho shepherd's
assertion that old Shop can count tho
sheep is possibly not far from tho
truth. From "Old Shep and Central
Park Sheep" by Franklin II. North, in
St. Nicholas Jor August.

An Unwelcome Guest
Lightning plays 6trange freaks, and
there are people who tell of seeing,
during thunder-storms, balls of blue
lire ricocheting along the Btreet or
laying hide-and-seek among trees or
uildincTS. but it is seldom that it takes
a notion to skip into a hotel corridor
and have lots ot iun cnasing me guests
around, as it did at the Southern last
night Those persons who were awake
will remember a particularly loua ana
startling thunder-clap shortly after the
storm began. Just at this time most
of the guests at the Southern had re
tired, and the last frequenter was think
ing seriously of home, but some naii
dozen gentlemen were still sitting in a
group near tho cigar-stand, discussing
politics, and the few employes on duty
were lolling around, preparing to pass
the night as easily as possible. The
group of gentlemen were lacing east
and near ty one of the bell-boys was
standing. Suddenly there was an ex
clamation of surprise, and each man
started and shrunk back as if he had
received a powerful eloctric shock,
while the bell-boy threw his hands to
his face, staggered, and nearly fell.
"Did you see that?" came from noar
ly every member of the group in a
breath. A ball of brilliant and livid
blue light had shot through the open
doorway of the Fourth street entrance
of tho hotel, and passing along the
colling suddenly dropped at right angles
to the floor and disappeared. As the
ball of light struck the floor there was
a sharp ring as if a piece of metal had
struck the flagstones, which was follow
ed by tho thunder. Tho flash of light
was noticed by everyone in the corridor,
and the policeman' on the beat, who was
standing outside the door, was blinded
by tho glare. Tho spot were the' ball
started toward tho floor was, apparent
ly, where tho electric light was swing
ing, and this was borne out by tho
fact that tho globe of the light was
cracked and a triangular holo had been
broken in the bottom of it On the
floor, this morning, was found a small
piece of twisted bronze, which could
not bo accounted for, as it had not been
tore from anything in tho hotel, as far
as could bo seen. It is supposed that
the flash was brought into tho hotel by
the electric-light wire, orcoming in
was attracted by it and was thus pre
vented from tackling tho guests. As
tho hotel is built entirely of iron and
stone, it probably got very tired wrest
ling with it and concludod to dis
appear. The flash is described as vivid
and blinding, accompanied by a per
ceptible shock on those in tho corridor.
