Tbe Odda Against the Vender.
One of the chief aims in the life of a New
York street gamin apparently is to worry
Italian fruit venders as much as possible.
The Bwarthy children of sunny Italy are
never at peace when the irrepressible street
urchin is around. Their bananas, pears,
peanuts and figs are regarded ns legitimate
plunder by th6 boys. It is the custom of
these young rascals to approach an Italian's
stand or wagon in groups from different
directions. The group that makes the first
sally will invariably be chased away by
the excitable vendor. Then the other
groups advance and help themselves tothe
unprotected stock. An incident occurred
in Whitehall street, near the Produce ex
change, the other day, which demonstrated
how little chance the poor Italian street
peddler has in a struggle with his torment
ers. A good sized boy had stolen half a
dozen bananas from a stand guarded by a
single Italian. The latter ran after the
thief and caught him, but not before the
loy had tossed the bunch of fruit to a con
federate. The Italian held firmly to his prisoner
and jablwred something alont a "p'lice
man." He evidently wanted the thief ar
rested. The boy pulled, wriggled and
fought, frequently striking his captor in
the face. Other lxys ran up at intervals
and struck and kicked the Italian. A
large crowd quickly gathered, and popular
feeling was against the Italian from the
start. A dozen men pressed forward and
commanded the fruit vender to release the
boy. A passing teamster loaned over the
edge at his seat and shouted, "Break de
dago in two." The situntiou became too
threatening for the Italian, who. seeing no
sign of a police officer, reluctantly released
his prisoner and humbly went back to his
stand, which in the meantime had been al
most completely despoiled of its contents.

One Poisonous Snake in Michigan.
In Michigan there is but a single species
of poisonous snake among the twenty-five
or more kinds that I know. The danger
ous one is the common massasauga, or
prairie rattlesnake (Caudisona tergeminal.
Many times have I been called upon to de
cide on a specimen supposed to be poison
ous, but always have found that the so
called copperhead or moccasin resolved it
self into an innocuous water snake or milk
snake. I do not think there exists an
other poisonous species in Michigan be
sides the common inassasanga, although
the northern or banded rattlesnake (Cro
talus durissiis) is found within fifty miles
of our southern boundary in Indiana, and
may. for aught I know, occasionally be
found within our con Sines. It is common
in Pennsylvania and Illinois.
The common massnsauga is far from
rare at present in southern Michigan, and
in the early days of Kalamazoo county was
very abund ant. To believe the stories of
the early settlers, a low meadow could not
be mowed without encountering from teu
to a hundred of these poisonous serpents.
They grew to an enormous size at that,
few being killed less than four feet long,
am! a length of five or six feet was com
mon, while tiie smallest number of rattles
adorning a tail of this minister (?) species
wi:s sixteen and from that up to forty odd.
Dr. Morris Ciiobs in Forest and Stream.
A Hat's Teeth.
The rat is remarkably well equipped for
the peculiar life he is ordained to lead.
He has strong weapons in the shape of
four long and very sharp teeth two in the
upper jaw and two in the lower. These
teeth are wedge shaped, and by a wonder
ful provision of nature have always a fine,
sharp cutting edge. On examining them
carefully the inner part is found to be of a
soft, ivorylike composition, which can
easily lie worn away, and the outside is
composed of a glasslike enamel, which is
The upper teeth work into the under so
that the centers of the opposed teeth meet
perfectly in the act of gnawing; bence the
soft part is being continually worn away,
while the hard part keeps a hard, chisel
like edge all the time, and at the same
time the teeth are constantly growing up
from the bottom, so that as they wear
away a fresh supply is ready. Should one
of these teeth be removed by accident or
otherwise the opposing tooth will continue
to grow, and there being nothing towearit
away it, will project from the mouth and
be turned upon itself, and if it be an under
tooth it will often grow so long as to pene
trate the skull. Rochester Union-Advertiser.
His Sliupo Is His Fortune.
If ever there was a man who could be
said to travel on his shape it is "Big
John," of the Equitable building, the
great big handsome colored gentleman
who for so matiy years has been the fron
tispiece and figurehead of that costly pile
Big John was discovered, mined, un
earthed in the wilds of "Washington. The
late Henry 15. Hyde caught sight of him
at Lincoln's fuueral. John filled his eye
so completely that he was scarcely able to
see the rest of the procession.
"I must have that man," said Mr. Hyde.
"He is too big a man for Washington."
It did not take long to find that John
was on tiie Capitol police or to approach
him. John was not overanxious to effect a
change of base, but the offer of 50 per cent
advance upon his policeman's salary set
tled the question, and tince that time the
seven footer (or less) has ornamented the
front row of the Equitable building.
It sometimes pays to have a cubit added
to your stature. New York Herald.
Johnny could not talk very distinctly;
his was usually an "h," so he had a
dialect of his own. With a hungry sweet
tooth peculiar to little people, he some
times forgot his mother's injunction n"t
to meddle with the sugar bowl. Finding
himself alone in the dining room one day,
the temptation to help himself to the for
bidden sweet overcame him.
He was having a beautiful time when
his mother unexpectedly entered the room.
Hastily wipiug the crumbs of sugar from
his mouth, he cried out, with the air of
one who had just made a discovery, "Oh,
mamma, homebody's been to your hugar
bowl!" New York Tribune.
An Accommodating Undertaker.
This is a cheerful old world. An Owens
boro undertaker advertises that "he will
be glad to embalm some corpse free of
charge to convince the people that he can
give satisfaction." There are several peo
ple down there who would lie improved by
embalming, and it is hoped that the under
taker i:i question may not be long deterred
from exhibiting a specimen of his "before
and after taking" work. Frankfort (Ky.)

theSlOTT MEDICAL INSTITUTE.
NOW IS THE TIME.
One Month's Treatment in Summer
Equal to Three in Winter.
The present warm weather is a boon to suffer
ers from catarrh. For these reasons:
In the first place, there is less psbillty. at this
period of the year, to take cold than at any other
time Consequently there la no irritating cause
of delay in cure or probability of a relapse.
Secondly, the climate is all that can be desired.
Thirdly, nature is kindly in summer and lends
Its best aid to the efforts of the physician. One
month's treatment now is worth three in wint-r.
Now is the time and the opportunity is jist
what is desired for the worst cases. Uo not let it
go, by thinking yon will get we 1 (for with the
nr.t rold, jour trouble will return worre thin ev

ployed at Scott Medical Institute and have done
for yon in the next two months what might not be
possible to be effected until text summer.
