GILA MONSTER'S BITE.
The Reptile Turns Over to Get Venom
Into Its Victim.
It was his turning over habit that
led me to the discovery as to the bite
of the Gila monster. This creature.
more like a short, stocky snake with
legs on than anything else, has no poi?
son fangs, like the rattlesnake, yet his
bite may be just as dangerous. His
poison teeth are in his lower jaw. and
the poison comes from a gland under
the tongue. If he bites without turn?
ing over the wound ls not serious, but
if he turns over there is great danger.
Dr. Snow of the University of Kan?
sas wrote me some time ago of an ex?
perience he had with the bite of a
The reptile was caught aud put in a
bucket, the top of which was covered
with paper. The bucket was then pot

Poor Man Creature.
As Woman gradually impressed upon
man the futility of strutting around In

and more sober and workaday in ap?

the decorations of primitive man were
intended to fascinate feminine eyes
but woman presently began to make
it clear that she was not hunting for
"a tine, showy article," but something
solid and plain and useful, warranted
to stand wear and tear. As for the or?

has been snipped of gauds and whee?

one cannot help feeling a tender pity
for this victim of feminine self aggran?

vague, general fear of the female sex
haunts him. Afraid of being married

How the Fabulous Monster Was Pic?
tured by Ancient Writers.
The basilisk was the most famous
of tiie many fabulous monsters of me?
diaeval foi;.'.ore. According to the
popular notion, it was hatched hy a
toad from an egg laid by the cock of
the common barnyard fowl, in the
ancient picture hooks it was usually
represented as tm eight limbed ser?
pent or dragon, sometimes with and
sometimes without whigs. Its name
ls derived from baslllscos, meaning a
little king, and was applied because
the creature was figured with a circle
of white spots on its head which much
resembled a crown. The cockatrice, a
species of basilisk, besides having a
crown, possessed a comb which was
an exact counterpart of the cock's.
Pliny assures us that the basilisk
had a voice which "struck terror ti
tho hearts of men, beasts and ser
pents." The Bible classes it with the
lion, the serpent and the dragon BJ
one of the most formidable creatures,
old writers?Pliny, Bascbo and others
-say that Its bite was mortal in every
case, that its breath was suffocating
and that no plant would grow In the
Vicinity of its lair. Its dead body
was often suspended In belfries to pre?
vent swallows from building there.
