Terrible India Weapons.
Its is to India, that we must look for
strange and ingenious varieties of the
sword and dagger, as well as for the most
striking examples of art in arms. The
weapon common to every part of Hin
dostan, so as to deserve the name of the
national arm, is the "katar." This is a
broad two edged dagger, the hilt of which
is formed something like an H, the hand
grasping the crossbar, which is generally
doable, while the sidebars 'extend on each
side of the wrist.
Some katars are made with five blades,
which unite into one, but by squeezing to
gether the crossbars diverge like the fin
gers of a hand when the thrust has been
given. Other katars are made in sets of
two or even thive, of diminishing sizes,
the blades of the birder leing hollow and
forming sheaths for the smaller. Some of
the southern Indian katars, known as
"death givers," are immense weapons,
nearly two feet lonu: in the blade, and the
hilts are a mass of fantastic scrollwork
and mythological monsters, the cobra with
expanded hood figuring largely. There is
also the "bich'hwa," or scorpion's sting, a
doubly curved dagger; the "khanjar," a
larger form of the same, and the "pesh-
kabz," or hunting knife. Hut none of these
elaliorate weapons have about it the
terribly "businesslike'' look of the Khyber
knife (ch'hura), with its ponderous single
edged, tapering blade and plain ivory hilt.
A Common Test.
From time whereof the memory of man
runneth not the contrary the rat has been
looked upon as one of the most persistent
enemies of the human race. He has de
stroyed the garnered treasures of millions
of farmers, rendered millions of acres val
tieless to the husbandman, undermined
houses without number, and even depopu
lated whole provinces by bringing the labor
of man to naught. His record does not rest
upon the tradit ions that tell us of the won
derful doings of the Pied Piper of Hamelin,
the important part he played in making
Dick Whittington "twice mayor of Ixn
don" and the just punishment lie meted
out to Bishop Hatto in his corn choked cas
tle on the Rhine.
He has been a pest in every clime, and
will so continue to be until in the devel
opment of the distant future he shall
either disappear or evolve Into some harm
less, guiltless creature as useless as the
axololi of Mexico or the lazy hellbender
that rests his boneless body in the muddy
bed of the Miami river. There is but one
good word to say for the rat. 'While at all
times prompt to take for his own use the
choicest food that man can provido for
himself, the rat does excellent service as a
scavenger and consumes tons of refuse
material, which, if allowed to putrefy,
would become the certain means of pesti
lence and death. Dr. S. K. "Weber's Lec
ture. How Ac torn Study.
"Few people re.nl izv the study that some
of our actors and actresses give to their
art," said Dr. Amos T. Beh rings, of Xew
York. "I was a hospital surgeon during
the war, and have been frequently con
sulted by actors required to simulate
deatli by gunshot wounds, sword thrusts,
etc. Actors required to simulate death by
one of the many poisons, or by a particu
lar disease, haunt the hospitals until they
have an opportunity to witness what they
are to portray upon the stage. Those who
do not make these studies frequently amuse
the physicians in their audiences very
"There is a prominent actor now starring
In a role wherein ho is supposed to receive
a gunshot wound in the hettd that proves
fatal 'while you wait,' yet he walks across
the stage, retains his consciousness and
converses intelligently until he drops back
dead. I never saw a case of that kind in
real life A prominent actress, who has a
habit of pressing her hand over her heart,
needs a medical guide lHxik, as she does not
get within eight inches of that vital or
gan." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Neil lirywnt Still Alive.
Seated with some friends at Ohambcr
lin's was a man once famous in the min
strel profession, now a clerk in a gov
ernment department here. The rising
generation may not know much aliout the
Bryant brothers, but thirty years ago they
were at the zenith of popularity and played
to crowded houses iu all the big cities.
There were Jerry, Xeil and Dan, and it
was the second referred to in the opening
lines, Jerry and Dan having long since
taken passage iu the boat belonging to old
Charon. It was interesting to hear genial
Neil Bryant recount stories of those ear
lier days of minstrelsy. "In our com
pany," said he, "was Dan Kmmett, who
while with us composed 'Dixie,' that tune
dear to the southern heart. He is still
alive, though quite an old man now, and
when I last heard of him he was fiddling
in Chicago." Washington Post.
The Mohaves believe that all who die
and are not cremated are turned into owls,
and when they hear an owl hooting at
night they think it is the spirit of some
dead Mohave returned. After any one
dies they do not eat salt or w:ish them
selves for four days. They had formerly
an annual burning of property, and all
would contribute something to the flames
in expectation of its going up to their de
parted f riemls in heaven, or "White Moun
tain," as they call it. Philadelphia Led
ger. IMdn't Like Trees.
A citizen of this city, whose father was
visiting him from the country, took the
old gentleman on a ride to see the beauties
of the town. While passing through Ocean
street attention was called to the fine trees
and iVirubbery, ami the father was asked
how he would like one of those places.
"Oh, well cnouch, I guess, after I had
cleared it up!" Lynn (Mass.) Item.
One .of the most startlingly unanticipated
replies on record was that of the "Mother's
help," a young lady versed in all present
day female attainments, who, in reply to
the address, "I want a jiersoti of some ex
perience in the nursery; do you know
much about children?" cheerfully retorted,
"Oh, dear, yes; I've dissected a baby."
