Fiftt thousand dollars for alienat

steep, and is likely to make other
husbands still further exaggerate
their own importance. They should
remetii?er, however, that the price
rests with judge arid jury and that
there have been verdicts for one cent.

Tin: grim irony of fate lias gone

went bathing in a shallow pool and
has been drowned.
Dr. William Kvkkett, the school
teacher congressman from juiney,
.Mass., amused his fellow members
by savingin his first speech,
T will not let members de

of using the common phase

took at once, as it was given with a
merry twinkle of the congressman's
eye that showed he was only trying
to live up to the language which the
world has learned to expect from
Bostonians or those living there
abouts. A sew deep-water fish called for
hort lopholatilus chainaeleonticeps,
pronounced by epicures almost as
toothsome as the celebrated blue fish,

rarely come nearer to the surface of
the water than 303 feet. More am

for the Cotton Seed.
Dr. II Steinerof Waynesboro. fla. .re
lates a rather remarkable occurrence in
which a negro g ir! an. I a rattlesnake
The girl was recently bitten by a
snake of this 'pecies, who-e venom
almost defies scientific treatment even
vhen it is apnii 'd by the most skillful
physician at once. An old negro
named Jim IJeale undertook the cure
and succeeded triumphantly, and with
a remedy never heard of before. '1 he
cotton nlu has been found to serve
cuacT pifp'jses for food an 1 clothing,
etc., but so far iiever was used before
by any other doctor than old Jim to
cure fttttlesnake bites.
Dr. Sttainer says he was not told of
the accident until next morning,
though it happened on his farm. A
rattlesnake bite usually kills in half
an hour unless necked by remedies.
Dr. Steiner says he saw the patient on
Monday mornicg after beinir bitten
on Sunday wal ing about. The only
'effect of the bit was a slight .swelling
of the toes on tl e foot bitten.
Old Jim is a sort of "yarb doctor"
and applied nat ire's remedies without
consulting ther ipetitics.
lie first very v i-ely applied a liga
ture around t.ie girl's ankle and
squeezed out as much poisoned blood
as he could immediately after she was
bitten. After v hich he made a poul
tice of cotton -eed, which contains
ammonia, and applied it to the wound,
and gave her ab o cotton seed tea to
drink. Ammonia is the usual anti
dote for the poi.'on of snakes (except
of course, "co -n juice'' at fishing
frolics), and old Dr. Jim was applying
science in his experience. He then
cut open the rattlesnake and squeez
ing out the blood applied a piece of the
fleshy part to tie wound, bandaging
it on firmly. y
The girl is cured and there is the
fact for your consideration.

Dr. Wilson has business interests
