Singular Experience of at Traveler Wh
Slept In a Botanical Garden.
T. Gasser, a civil engineer of Vienna, who
for two or three years has been traveling
constantly, is in town.
"A most singular thins befell me near
Paradena, Ceylon," he said. "I had gone
with a friend into the great botanical gar
den there. This is probably the finest bo
tanical garden in the world. You hoar
many compliments about one or two other
gardens, but I believe none of them is so
large or bo entirely unique as this. In this
great garden, oddly enough, there were
many wild animals. As a rule they are not
supposed to be savage, however.
"Well, one day it was extremely warm
hot, you may say, even for Ceylon." I at
length became tired and stretched myseW
on the ground under some india rubber
trees. My frtend meantime left me, and T
gazed for a time up through the leaves t-f
the trees, catching a glint once in awhile
of the sun, till a relaxed and lazy feeling
overcame me, and I fell asleep. I must
have slept an hour, when suddenly I was
awakened by a queer, uncanny feeling and
opened my eyes.
"Judge of my surprise when I saw
perched upon my feet, body, and even upon
my shoulders a lot of little monkeys, while
all about me and beaming down upon me
from the trees were monkeys of all sizes
and ages. It seemed to me there were
myriads of them. I was frightened, for I
knew these monkeys were wild, and in
their wild state I did not know what so
many of them might do.
"I gave one leg a twitch, however, and
then the oilier, and bounded to my feet,
throwing off all that were gamboling over
and about me. In a second the monkeys
vanished, and only peering from the tops
of the tall bamiH)0 and rubber trees could I
see any at all. Even these did not remain
long. In a few minutes they were all gone.
I was much alarmed, for the appearance of
so many of them was entirely unexpected.
It was a week before I got over my fright.
"It appears, however, that the queer ani
mals had meant no harm to me. The con
gress had been called, and their examina
tion of me as I lay upon the ground was
merely out of curiosity to divine what kind
of an object I was. I suppose if I had been
addicted to intoxicants I might have re
ceived such a shock from the cloud of
monkeys that I might never have recov
ered from it.
"As it was, I voted myself in luck and
vowed never to go to Bleep again in a wild
tropical forest, even if it were called a bo
tanical garden." San Francisco Kxaminer.
Ages. Bags and Wages-
If yon have a wife and a half-a-dozen daughters,
yon cin keeplthem all well by very simple means.
Let them nse Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pr,cription.
It is good for women of all ages. Ton will not
need to spend all yonr wages for it. Those an
cient sag en, the M. D's. of a century since, did
nothing but dose and bleed tbeir patients. We
do betteroday: We use Dr. Pierce's remedies.
For womankind. Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescrip
tion is simply iadispensable. Tbe young girl
needs its strong hening help at that criiical peri
od when she is blossoming Into womanhood. The
matron and mother find in it invigoration and re
lief from the numerous ills which beset their ex
istence. And ladies well advanced in years uni
versally acknowledge the revivifying and restor
ative effects of this favorite and standard reme
dy. Raw Beef Eating as a Fad. '
English medical authorities are advising
their patients that beef is more digestible'
raw than cooked. Quite a circle of raw'
beef eaten is , being established., and it;
promises to become a fad. Jew York Recorder.
An Vndergroand Electric Kailway.
London's electric railway runs from the
"city" to Stockwell, a distance of four
miles, more or less, and lies buried in the
ground at a depth of 300 feet nearly at the
city end and is reached by elevators. This
great descent is rendered necessary for two
reasons first, the road goes under the led
of the Thames, and, second, the city com
missioners of sewers, who had a great say
in the -matter, agreed that if it were so low
down they would only charge a small sum
for the ground.
The train consists of an engine and four
vestibule cars, so that it is possible to pass
from a smoking carriage to a nonsmoker.
and vice versa. The seats are not arranged
like our Pullman, but are fixed in the same
manner as are the seats in the electric cars
The train is drawn by an engine with a
storage battery and works very well nnless
the power gives out, when there is a delay
sometimes of half an hour not very agree
able in a tunnel just large enough for the
train, admirably ventilated as the tunnel is.
Since the opening of this unique railroad
the fares have been altered and improved
terms made, for now you can go half way
i. e., to the Kensington Oval for a pen
ny, and the journey from Stockwell to the
city is regularly done in 15 minutes. There
are no tickets, but you can get commuta
tion tickets for 3, G or 12 months at reason
able rates. The air in the tunnel is always
fresh, aDd even in summer cool. Boston
A Simple Ceremony.
"They have a queer betrothal custom
down among the common natives or peons
of Guatemala," said Alfred Thompson,
"which is scarcely romantic for the girl. 1
was passing t he hut of a native on a linen or
coffee plantation one day when I saw an old
woman belaboring her daughter with a good
sized stick, which she applied vigorously
across the shoulders and lody of her be
loved offspring, who sot up wails of woe
and pain, though 1 fancy her tears were
quickly dried, for it was a significant event
for her. This is the way the old lady gave
her consent to the marriage of her daughter.
"The natives receive but little cash dur
ing the year. The priest charges what is
there considei ed a good sum for performing
a marriage ceremony, and the natives of the
lower classes dispense wit J it. The mother
beats the, daughter, there is a feast of fri
golli and tort ilii cakes andlhodispensatiou
of unlimited quantities .f native whisky,
everylxiiiy is happy, and that constitutes
the marriage, which, singular as it may ap
pear, is regarded and observed, as a rule,
faithfully." Washington S; .ir.
