BITTEN BY A NEVILI0
ONE OF THE TERRORS OF LIFE ON
THE ISTHMUS OF TEHUANTEPEC.
A Lizard Prom Whoie Deadly I'olson
Only One Man la Known to Have
Hecurrrril- The Treatment AVUIcfc
Saved Ulna From Death.
"I guess I am the only living man
that has len bitten by the nevillo, a
venomous lizard of the Isthmus of
Tihuaut.pec," eaid William YV. Cloon,
a New Yorker with Central American
' experiences. "This lizard Is of the CSila
monster family and is a horrid looking
reptile of a mottled liver color and
is from six to ten Inches long. Its bite
Is deadly, au'd, as I paid, I am the only
person known who has lived after be
lli;; bitten. It was a case of nip and
tuek, though, and I didn't get over it
for two mouths or more.
"The brute bit me out of pure malice,
for I wasn't doinjr a thing to it. I had
a coffee plantation down on the isth
mus several years ago and just be
fore the hot season began, which was
in March. I had as my guest Dr. Fer
gus MacDouald of the Smithsonian
Institution, who was in that country in
the interest of science. While he was
with me we received an iuvitatlon to
visit the great plantation of lr. Pedro
Arguilles. one of the most prominent
men of that country, and we went to
his hacienda near Minititlan. The
ladies of the family had all gone to
Mexico City, and as the weather was
hot we men loafed around In our iy
Jamas, the upper garment of w-hich is
a big sleeved affair called a eamlsa.
"One day Dr. MaeDonald and I had
adjourned to the patio or court of the
building, and while I lay In the grass
talking to him he Mas busy greasing
and putting into shape his guns ami
revolvers. He was six or eight feet
away from me, and I was lying with
my head propped up on my arm, from
which the sleeve had slipped, leaving It
exposed to the elbow, which rested on
the grass. Of course neither of us was
thinking about reptiles or other dan
gers right there In the court of tho
building. Suddenly, as I talked, the
doctor threw his hand up in warning,
and I knew that whatever it was he
saw there was danger in my moving,
and I must keep still. So I kept as
steady as I could, and then I felt some
thing go up my arm toward my head
and stop near my wrist.
"I couldn't sec what It was, but I
knew something about tropical reptiles
and I kept perfectly quiet while the
doctor caught up one of his revolvers
and threw a couple of cartridges into
it. He aimed across my body and fired,
and as I jumped to my feet a nevillo
at least seven Inches long fell writhing
to the ground, shot through tho head.
The bullet had gone on into my arm
and came out at the elbow and I was
bleeding, lictwecn the bullet marks,
though, were the fang marks where the
nevillo had stuck its teeth into my arm.
and I told the doctor I thought it had
got me. As soon as he saw it he gave
me some kind of a hypodermic injec
tion in the left leg. the right arm hav
ing been bitten, and at once took his
knife and slashed me across the fang
marks. Into the wounds of my arm
he poued a bottle of concentrated
ammonia. Almost instantly after I
had been bitten I began to grow dizzy
and to see what seemed to me to be
clouds of light smoke, and when the
ammonia struck me I, keeled over In a
"Five days later I awoke in a mud
bath by the riverside, my body twice
its normal size and my tongue sticking
out of my mouth. They hail carried
me there as soon as I fainted, and
night and day my guide and his daugh
ter had been watching by me, with
fires at night to keep off the animals
from the jungle. livery 12 hours my
arm was lifted from the mud and
cleansed, and on these occasions it was
always found to be of a green color.
As soon as I returned to consciousness
I was carried to the house and put to
bed, and there for two weeks I re
mained and then went down to the
coast and up to the well known hot
springs, where I was treated for two
months until every bit of the venom
had left my body. During it all I suf
fered no pain, nor have I ever felt the
slightest inconvenience since. What
effect the bullet wound in the arm had
I don't know. Possibly the blood that
came from the bullet wounds saved
me. Anyhow something happened that
never happened to any other person
bitten by a nevillo, or I wouldn't be
here to tell the story."
Mr. Cloon bared his arm for the ben
efit of the listeners, and if an arm ever
looked as if it had been through a hard
campaign that one did. It was scarred
as if burnt with hot irons and covered
from the elbow down with all kinds of
peculiarly shaped mottled spots of
about the same color as the lizard.

A little 4-year-old was taken on
a visit to grandmamma In the country.
There for the first time he had a view
of a cow. lie would stand and look on
while the man milked and ask all man
ner of questions. In this way he learn
ed that the long crooked branches on
the cow's head were horns. Now, the
little fellow knew of only one kind of
horn, and a few day after obtaining
this information, hearing a strange kind
of bellowing noise in the yard, he ran
out to ascertain Its cause. In a few
minutes he returned with wonder and
delight depicted on his countenance, ex
claiming: "Mamma, mamma! Oh, do
come out here! The cow's blowing
her torns!" Exchange.

Speaking of the late William Travers
leads me to remark that, so far as I
am personally aware, only one of the
classic stuttering stories about him is
actually true. I had the honor and
happiness to reside at Newport for a
year or si once, and at the time Mr.
Travers was a summer resident there.
He certainly stuttered a good deal, but
be did not go around habitually dis
charging staccato witticisms at the
world, as you might suppose he did
from all the stories you hear. Iut the
one story that I know alout is this
Travers was at a garden party one
afternoon when a young lady said to
him, "What time is it, please, Mr.
Travors took out his watch, wabbled
his mouth awhile, blinked and finally
said, "It'll be s-s-s-s-six o'c-c-c-c-clock

It is said to be true that in all hospi
tals those rooms facing the sun have
fewer deaths, other things being equal,
than those which are on the shady side
of the house. Likewise statistics, where
they have been kept, prove that the av
erage time for a recovery is much less
in a sunny room than in a shady one.
From these facts and from the fact
that the tendency toward illness has
proved greater on the shady side of
buildings, like prisons and asylums, it
follows that light is second only in im
portance to fresh air. A dark room Is
nearly but not quite so bad as a close
room. In the case of sickness the sick
room should be the 6unniest one the
