Water From the Jordan Klver.
Of all strange articles that pass
through the United States custom
houses from time to time perhaps
none has, of late years, attracted so
much attention as seven barrels of
water from the baptismal pool of the
Jordan river. This remarkable
shipment was consigned by United
States consul at Jerusalem to the
Jerusalem-and the Crucifixion Pano
rama, on Wabash avenue, Chicago,
where it has just been delivered.
Eight large casks were started by
camel train overland from the Jor
dan to Joopa. the Joppa of bible
days, but one camel with its burden
was lost by falling over a rocky prec
ipice, so but seven barrels reached
their destination. The announce-
l ment of the arrival of this shipment
by the New Yoik and Chicago papers
brought scores of oeonle to the rreat
i panorama, ail anxious to procure
s jme of t his remarkable liquid; some
wanted it for healing purposes, some
as souvenirs, others for baptismal
ceremonies. Mr. Gross, the manager
of this remarkable and enternrisinn-
j religious exhibition, said the idea of
the importation was to present at
stated time bottles of this water to
visitors to this magnilicent, religious
exhibition, which comprises not only
the panorama of Jerusalem and the
Crucifixion, but also the world-famous
painting, '-Christ's Triumphal
Entry Into Jerusalem.''

Painted Birds Sold at 2 Kaon Many Peo
A couple of smooth young men
have worked Freeport people to their
hearts'. content the past few days.
Their scheme is a new and novel one
and its originator is a genius. It is
a bread-winner as nearly 50 Free
porters will testify to. The men go
to the house with bird cages tilled
with red birds. They offer them
for sale at $2 each, and claim the
little ones are in perfect health.
The color is perfect, and the birds
appear to be chipper and full of life.
The men are persuasive talkers and
easily induce pedple who are fond of
birds to purchase one. When the
bird is delivered it is apparently in
the best of health. About three days
after the birds were delivered to the
purchaser they commenced to die off,
and now out of the .00 or more birds
that were sold in Freeport, only a
few sick ones remain on earth to tell
An investigation of the dead birds
show that when alive they were only
common English sparrows that the
boys get 2 cents apiece for killing.
The red color is paint or a dye of
some kind and it is perfect. The in
haling of the acid in the paint or dye
is what causes their death. A num
ber of well known bird fanciers in
Freeport were swindled into buying
one or more of the birds.
