Superstition or the Dead Hand.
On a ret- -lit visit south 1 met some
friei.'ds who have a little child which I
bad nM. eeu forayenror more. At that
time the cliil 1 had a hirthnmrk, almost a
perfect straw Ixrry on its neck, which in
terested me .lousiderably, and on the re
newal of our acquaintance I asked about
the mark. The child's mother informed
me that it h:id entirely disappeared, and
upon investigation I found that she was
correct in her statement. The mark was
gone, and naturally I asked what had
caused its disappearance. At first she re
fused to tell me, but finally, with apolo
gies for her weakness, she confessed that
an old darky woman had told her if she
took the child to a dead person and rubbed
the dead band on the mark it would go
She laughed about it incredulously, for
she was not a superstitions woman, but
the sugestioti remained with her, and the
more she thor ghtof it the more it grew.
until one day h neighbor having died she
took the chil 1 to the house and touched
the spot with t he dead person's hand. No
one knew of it except a woman who went
with her, for stie was ashamed to acknowl
edge her superstition, but just the same,
in the course of a few weeks the mark be
gan to fade away, and it continued to do
so until it had disappeared entirely.
Then she began to wonder at it and to
make inquire, "and she discovered that
similar cures or removals had been effected,
notably in one instance where a red blotch
which disfigupsd half the face of a young
man had disar peared, or was at that time
disappearing, ti be more correct, after the
dead band treatment. I did not go to see
the young mai whose face when I was
there was almost of the natural color, but
I have no reasoa to doubt the lady's verac
ity. No explanation was or could be given of
the cure except a vague allusion to the
supposition that as the body in the ground
decayed the mark on the living person dis
appeared, the tine required in the removal
being coincider t. or supposed to be, with
that required in the decay and dissolution
of the body. New York Sun.
A New Refuse Destrnctor.
An improved refuse destructor has ap
peared in England. The refuse is put into
the destructor, .tnd it contains sufficient
refuse coal and other combustible material
to keep the furnaces going when once
lighted, noother fuel being necessary. The
temperature of the furnaces ranges from
400 to 1,000 degs. Fahrenheit, according to
the unng, and considerably less beat than
the former is sufficient to effectually de
stroy any germs of disease and to consume
the injurious products of combustion be
fore they are pawed into the open air. Pat
ent fume crenif tors are also provided
through which all gases from the furnaces
pass over a fire, t:ie temperature of which
sometimes reachiiS 1,500 degs. Fahrenheit,
and they are then conducted into a chim
ney shaft 100 feet in height.
The intense heitt, which is estimated as
equal to the development of forty-five
horse power, is utilized for driving ma
chinery and generating electricity, as well
as in dealing with the clinker or residuum
which is left af er the burning. This
residuum is ground np for concrete mor
tar, made into piving blocks, or used in
the construction o' streets, and a suitable
boiler is provided in the main flue of the
apparatus. Accon ling to present working,
the amount of house refuse, street sweep
ings, etc., that can be disposed of by one
machine in a year is 80,000 loads. Each
of the eight cells of the destructor burn
from eight to nine tons per day of twenty
four hours. New York Telegram.
