THE AKGttJS, FKIDAT, MAY 31. 1901
For fifty years Schlitz
lcer has been brewed at
Milwaukee. From this
xity it goes to the remotest
parts of the earth. The
sun never sets on Schlitz
agencies. Civilized men
do not live where Schlitz
beer is not standard.
Schlitz beer has made
Milwaukee famous. It has
given Milwaukee beer the
distinction of purity, and
purity is everything, but
all Milwaukee beer is not
Schlitz beer. People now
demand a beer that is
healthful, and that demand
calls for Schlitz.
Schlitz purity is abso
lute. Every process is
cleanly. Every drop of
the product is cooled in
filtered air. Every barrel
is filtered every bottle
A beer that is aged and
pure is healthful. That

The mine mule knows a thing or two
quite as well as does the army mule.
In one of tho mines in the Pittsburg
district the ever patient mule proved
himself possessed of au almost human
sense of coming danger. One morning
when the full bhift was at work there
occurred an unusual thing. The air
currents had seemed defective, and
there was a restless feeling among the
miners, something like the uueasiuess
of live stock before a storm. A few
days previous a chamber had been
closed on account of gas, and the men
were instinctively thinking of what
that miglit mean. Suddenly there was
a clatter of hoofs, and a mule appear
ed. Its long ears were quivering, and
Its Intelligent eyes were full of terror.
It gave a shrill bray and then was
gone down the entry, broken traces fly
ing after it. The men looked at one
another, and then the feverishness of
the air moved them with one Impulse.
Dropping picks, they fled precipitately,
making a headlong dash through the
labyrinth for the open air. With feared
faces other miners Joined them, ami
while they were wondering what it
all meant a dull, deep explosion went
rumbling through the hollow back of
them, followed by wave upon wave of
noxious vapors. Then they understood.
When tbe bodies of the few. poor men
who had been hopelessly entrapped
were recovered, another was tenderly
carried out with theirs that of the lit

It was probably in the character of a
healer that the serpent was regarded
by the Milesians, since most of the lo
calities of Ireland connected with tra
ditions of these reptiles destroyed by
St. Patrick were esteemed places of
healing. To these spots, generally holy
wells, the people of tho poor and igno
rant classes still resort as pious pil
grims taking relief from their Infirmi
ties. They drink of the sacred waters
and circle about the fount on their
knees while repeating their prayers,
and It is a curious fact, as we are in
formed by an old time traveler in Ire
land, that this circling was formerly
done "groveling on hands and knees or
even lying flat on the ground and wrig
gling like a snake." This must un
doubtedly have been a relic of the an
cient rites, though the people had not
the slightest Idea of Its origin or even
that such a religion had ever existed
on their island.
In the same way they still on Bel
tane eve (Bel-tlnne. or Bel's fire) kindle
bale fires" on the summit of every

down their sides, though ignorant that

Irish ancestors, who observed it in a
precisely similar manner. New Lippin-

SNAKE, EGGS AND A JUG.,
A Noerasla's Appetite and lack of
Senae Led to Itia Ueath.
A party of JacksonfaPle mechanics
were at work on the Matanzas river
raising a sunken dredgeboat. They
lived on board of the big lighter on
which they worked in a small bouse
on the deck. One noon their bill of
fare was somewhat strengthened by(
some wild turkey eggs whii U had been
found by some of the party while hunt
lug on shore. After the hungry en
giueers had destroyed a heavy dinner
they left their dining room and return
ed to work. The doors and windows
were all open, and the cook did not
clear off the table for some time.
In this Interval a large water moc
casin of near six feet crawled on board
the lighter and wriggled into the din
ing room through the open door. In
his prospecting tour he climbed the
table leg, and here, with a snake's
fondness for eggs, he went in for a
feast. One of the turkey eggs lay
alone' by a plate, and the rest were in
a dish on the other side of the table.
In the center stood a large water jug.
and right here the wily serpent slipped
up. After swallowiug the lonesome
egg. he started for the main supper
and in his artless manner crawled
through the handle of the jug. It was
a rather tight tit. and he had to stop
about half way through on account of
the egg. which enlarged him some
what. So, stretching forward, he lolt-
rd another egg and thereby . fastened
On each side of the jug handle was
an egg on his Inside, and he could
urove neither backward nor forward,
practically riveted iu position. He was
soon found in this peculiar situation
by the cook, who speedily killed him.
The reporter was shown the skin of
the snake with a crease still in the
middle from the tremendous pressure,
and he was also permitted to gaze on
tbe jug whose handle proved so fatal.
