the: secret of a haunted house
Clever Indian Jugglers I'nintenttoiially
Solve a Village Mystery What disturbed
the Captain -Remarkable Skill of a Bnaka
Almost every town or village has its haunt
ed biuse, and the little village settlement of
Wanda, in India, was no exception. Here a
nun ber of English offl. ers and their families
live during tho warmer months, returning to
thoi - respective cntntimuds later on. The
rum.tr that Capt. Beauchamp's house was
rmu iron was ctreulateil by a servant a su
perstitious old Englishman who had followed
the captain all over the world and was. all
things considered, a faithful servitor. Thomas
had for some days heard curious sounds about
the house. At first ha thought there were
rate or mice in the wall. Ho was awakened
one night by a most extraordinary noise.
The door bell was ringing violently, and a
struggling, writhing voice in the wall of tho
houw not in one place, but in several at
Olid). This was followed by a complete si-
leme, and as Thomas sat up in bed, his hair
threatening to stand on end. he was positive
he beard a long drawn sih. This was the
last feather. So, leaping from the couch, he
rushed to his employer's room and aroused
him, avowing that the place was haunted,
and a few moments later tho entire house
hold was in the room.
THE MOCKNFUL PLAINT.
The notoriety so cheaply earned became
excxHlmcly disagreeable. First came stran
ger, natives and others, who stood in front
of the house day and night and looked at it
wit a wondering curiositv. Matters stood in
thU shape for somo days, when one morning
a p-iny 01 jugglers pass.-d through tho town
and finally reached the haunted house. As
there were a number of children in the fami
ly the performers wore invited into the
grtunds and gave an entertainment. Fi
nally, as a winding up, one of the men took
out a small oval basket haviuz an orifice in
the top, and seating himself near it began to
piay a quaint air upon a Mute.
After industriously playing for a few rain-
ute-i up through tho hole in the basket came
the head of the cobra one of the most
poiwnous of snakes up came tho hideous
head with its h.xl that gave a malignant ap
pearance to the reptile, and when twelve or
fift wn inches above the basket it liegan to
waeto and fro as if in obedience to the
me tsure of the music.
After the snake dance or the snake
"charming," as Europeans are wont to call
it the Indian snake charmer walked around
the house, and among the bushes po utod out
a hole which might have Imen made by a
rabbit To one of the native attendants he
said that for a small sum extra he would take
out a cobra which he thought was in tho hole.
Th English officer did not believe it, but
willingly submitted to tho experiment, and,
seating himself before the hole, the magician
bet an bis mournful plaint.
For fifteen rninuts he kept up the noise,
and then from the opening there appeared
thf ugly, hooded head of a cobra. Another
hole was soon found, this being directly at
th basoof the wall of the house. The man
examined it a few moments carefully, then
bej-an to play upon the flute.
Hardly had the group gathered about tho
performer before a most remarkable noise
came from the house. First, there waa a
soi.nd as of escaping steam, then a sound of
sone great body striking tho wall and rub
bii.g against the timbers. Oust in clouds
caine from tho hole, and the 'charmer'"
started back in terror, overturning the man
behind him. Recovering himself, ho darted
at the hole and, thrusting his arm in, drew
om. not a cobra, but the tail of a larger
snttko. Astonishment was depicted on the
na.ive's face, and horror in those of many of
tho spectators, as he stood holding the tip of
tho tuuVand five feet of the liody was visible
A MONSTER BY THE TAIL.
For a second the man hesitated, then re
pa ning his courage ho shout. si in Hindoos
tanee for the lookers on to stand back, and,
tal.ing a good grip upon tho tail, he pulled
griduaily backward Out it came, foot by
foot, inch by Inch, five, ten, fifteen, sixteen
fet eighteen, was there no end 'eighteen
f t of quivering snake flfh as large as a
A quick jerk now and the entire monster
ma clear at least twenty feet in length
big enough to swallow a deer and yet held by
a Ingle man. The native was, however, not
in the least discouraged. He clung to tha
ta 1 and as the huge reptile turned toward
hi n with an angry hiss he gave it a swinging
m rtion by turning slowly. Gradually h n.
un til be seemed the center of a wheel, the
spokes of which wore the body of the python.
So rapid was the motion that the snake's
body was perfectly straight, and it was evi
dent that as long as the motion could be kept
ut the man was safe, but if the monster
cojld reach him he would in a moment be
cr ished iu the horriblo folds of the reptile.
riie lookers on had long since fled, the na
tives had gone shrieking up the street, the
Ei iglishman alone standing by, but even be
di 1 not know what to do, as it was impossi
bl ) to shoot the animal as it was flying
arouDd; go he stood for a few moments
a; hast at the curious position of the man.
It soon became apparent that the charmer
knew what he was atmut. Not far from the
house stood a stout flagstaff, a foot and a half
U rough, of solid teak wood, and toward this
ho was gradually moving, whirling the snake
faster and faster. Now he was within twen
tj -five feet of it, and suddenly it dawned
Uion the few spectators what he was about
t do. ThUl was to strike the head of the rep
tile against the Mile.
Nearer he came, whirling faster and faster
u itil the reptile stood out like a whip lash,
and then, with a quick step forward, he
b -ought the head of the animal against the
wood with a crushing sound. He released hii
h )ld, and the great reptile doubled up In con
vulsive folds, digging up the earth and send
big clouds of dust into the air, finally drop
ping limp and lifeless to the ground.
A wondering crowd soon surrounded the
daad boa, the now brave natives expressing
t leir opinions as to its size. One thing was
evidetit, that here was the "ghost." The big
t lake had iu some way obtained entrance to
tM house, probubly through the hole in the
t mndatiou, and had produced the mysterious
ajunds heard by the men. The snake charm
era had, as is thuir general custom, placed a
1 armless ixibra in the hole, and before they
I ad time to call it out it had encountered the
t ig Coa with the above result Cor. Phila

"No, air," said a quiet looking traveling
oan to a companion on tho train, "I can
truthfully say that I am very little given to
tear. I never was afraid of anything or
liny body in my life." "That is more than I
can say." "It's a fact, nevertheless." "By
l ho way, I should think a man of your age
'vould have been married long before this."
How do you know that I am not married T

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country.
Hear what he says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time nave bad occasion to eiamme, try
and notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
And nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B. or Ro
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. 1 have been subject to ins
fl&mmatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I had only
eaten six meMs, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles 1 was able to relish m meals anil
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When 1 returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
B. B.,curedmein mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
tbe greatest. 1 take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully.
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, hut the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its sunenor merits.
