WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1895.
NftUGflTUGKGOLUMN. An Over Zenlon" Officer Makes Tro.ilIo . For the Democrat Correspondent, Who Wait not YiolnttiiK -"" j A large number of the IH'.mockat's i readers went on the different cxcur.-inn-i Monday, mid the publishers boins; auxious for all of our citizens to enjoy a flood thin,r, scut down a few biimlr.il copies ; to be distributed anions; thorn when tbey came home.

" We obeyed him. but we propose to show in this article that the officer w as neither rum ing out the state law nor the borough ordinance, although we have no doubt he thinks he was. Nor do we believe t hat any court of record in this state would decide that fi daily paper published le-s than six hours before, with sixty-one columns of reading matter, much pertaining to the doitM's in onr own vicinity, w as an ad vertising sheet in the s -nseof the by-law of the borough charter. The st.Me law in the new act says that every per.-oii who shall deposit, throw, or aflix any paper or advertisement in any public highway or on any private prenn-es or property without the con-ent of tii. owner, or who shall allix to any tree, rock, or structure, within the limits of a public highway, any paper or advertise ment, other than notices posted in pur suance of law . shall be titled not mot t ban SI 00 or imprisonment for six months, or both. The charter says licit no per son shall scatter, throw or distrioute handbills or advertising sheets on orovr any side walk, itreet or public place in said borough, ami any pet -on so eatier iug. throwing or di-t ributing such h:-inl-hills or advertising sicets bali l.e titieil not more than 51" for such otV- .-. t'-.r use of the borough.

It is what is known tin a Cbi nero snake .tono. and there is said to be bur ono other in tho country. Indeed the one in olr. Sprad'oy's possession is bur b.iif a one. the or'-inai having boon cut- in tv. o by Mr. Spradler and hz.lt of it given to a friend. In appearance the stone looks like a lunali piece of oblong shf.pi d c.innol coal and is about one eig'uth of an inch in thickness, thrco eiRh'hs of an inch v.-ido and ht If an inch long. It is as light in weight as a pioco of cork, possesses a polisiicd sur face and can b.i easily out with a kmfo. It is not a stone, in tho proper sense of tho word, but is a manufactured article and is of a porous texvnre. To euro sr.a'-co bites or poisonous wounds of a similar nature with tho "stone" the wound must first- be scari fied. Then tho stone is applied to the wound. Each morning and evening it h taken off and put into a glass of luke warm water to remain a few moments until it discharges the poison it h;is ab sorbed. Then, after the wound has been washed in a srro?jg solution of salt wa ter and again scJcified, the stono, which in the meantime has been rubbed in warm ashes until dry, is again applied. If this tronirueut is kept up for nine days and tho patient ubgtaius during that tima from spirituous liquors a cure is assured. ' ' I st eurorl the stono, " said Mr. Pprad loy, "from my fat hrr more than J50 years ago. lie got it from .Tamos J. Parker, the man who made it. From 1K74 to 1977 I was with rho party which was put ting through tho Texas Paoitie railroad, and during that timo cured several of tho party who were bitten by rattler and other poisonous snakes. I have fre quently loaned tho stone to friends, and I cut the original in two, giving half of it to u particular friend of mine. I have not usod tho stouo for some timo, but am ready to give a test of its merits at any time. "It is, ynu see, not properly a stone, but is a taauiif aotured substance of a por ous nature. Tho thoory possessed by many that so called 'madstones' are found in tho siomachs of animals is all nonsense. They aro all manufactured in a manruir similar to this, and it in sim ply their 'drawing' powers and their porousuess and consequent oapaoity for absorption that renders them valuable. " St. Louis Republic. SKETCHES BYM. QUAD He Couldn't Take m Joke. "I dunno much about the laws of a city like thie, " ho began as ho entered : the central station the other evening, j "and I'd like to ask a few questions. " I " Vory well," repliod the sergeant aa ho looked up from his desk. ! "Kin a feller come np to me Jnd ' poke me in the ribs an call mo a bloom- In ole kuss on wheels? Does the law al low him to do it?" "If any one did that to you, he was only in fnn. " "Mebbo he was, but I don't like such, familiarity, and I told him so too. Does tho law allow anybody to cocin np to yon and smash your hat down over yonr ears and yell, 'Hello, Benben !' in your ears?" "Of course not, but some men are jovial, you know." "Ytw, I know tbey are, but I don't liko snch jokes. If I'm in a saloon drinkin a glass of boer by myself, does tho law allow the fellers in there to call raa 'Old Borax' and elbow me around till I'm strangled with brer?" "Oh, no, but they didn't hurt you any," smiled the sergeant. "They hurt my feelin's, and I don't like it a bit. Has a feller on tho hind platform of a street car any right to brush hay seed off my coat collar and grin and ask me how turnips are gittin along?" "Yon are no hand to take a joke," said the sergeant as he turned to his work. "No, I'm not," replied the man as his face grew more sorrowful, "I have I a iamo back, a holler tooth ana the ear ache, and on top of that I'vo lost five hogs by the cholera this summer and bad my barn struck by lightning. No, I ran't take no joke. I was calkorl.it in to stay in town four or five days, but I gr.oss I'll pull out tomorrow. It's too jovial fur mo. If tbar hain't no law to pnrtrrt a foller who feels sad then he'd bot'er git right out. Is thar anybody around here who kin play 'Home, Sweet Homo' on the accordion?" '"I don't think so." "Well, I hardly expected it. I guess I won't wait till morniu, but I'll leave tonight. It's a one sided town all rnns to jokes and no place for me. " " You ought to stay over and visit tho island park," suggested tho sergeant. "I'd liko to, but I dasii't. If I did sonio feller would jump out from be hind a tree and tickle mo in tho ribs mid oaii mo 'Old Squash !' and mafei mo mad "nnf to bnst. No, I'll go homo tonight and take my sadness along with me, and you Viu tell all the jokers iu town that they kin ha, ha I uud be hanged to em ; no Wasn't rp on Pokor. ".Sergeant." he began as ho entered police headquarters at 10 o'clock the other evening, J"011 understand tho game of poker?" "I'vo heard of it, "replied tho officer. "Well, 1 want some informal ion. I was coming in on the train today and a man asked mo if I'd like to take a hand at poker. It is spoiled p-o-k-e-r, I be lieve. " "Yes, I believe they spell it that way. ' ' "I said I'd tako a hand. Ho dealt me three jacks and in tho dra w I ot two queens. What sort of a hand was that?" "Tbey rail that a 'full house.' " "Well, I didn't know, but I thought it was a good hand, and after the draw I .said I'd bet a dollar. Tho man raised mt iou rail it raised, clon t yon.' "I'vo hoard it called so," rop'i-d tho toriioant. ' Thi n I raised him." "Yos. " 'Then ho raised mo." "Yes." "And is there such a term as 'bluff' in pokrr?" "I brliovo so." "Well, I think ho tried to bluff me, bnt btj couldn't do it. Thero was $00 on tho" table when ho said ho he'' "Ho called. " "Yos, he called. I'm sure that was Trhat he said Anyhow, we both showed our hands. He had only two pairs. I think ynu call them pairs, don't your" "But you had a full house," pro tested tho sergeant. "Yes, of course, and beat hira, didn't I?" "Certainly. " "That's what I thought, but ho raked In tho pot. I think you call it pot, don't you?" "Of CourEO you do, but why did yon let him rako in tho pot on two pairs when yon bad a full houso?" "Did that money belong to mc?" "Certainly it did." "And he swiped mo out of it. I bo Ijcve you call it swiped?" "For sura. What did you do?" "Oh, I lost $200 more and then quit playing. I doa't think I ought to play poker, do you?" "You'd better go and sandpaper yonr bead," growled tho sergeant as ho turned to his bcok. "Yt, I will," cheerfully replied tho young man. "I presume I can find a hardware store open at this Imr. I will buy a dime's worth. I will stiud puper my hrr.d. But just one word more. One of my hands was what is called a straight, but he said a 'crooked' always beat a straight. Can you tell mo if such" . But the sergeant roso up and pointed to the door, and the young man tiptoed out, saying : "Yes, I will sandpaper my head. Ta-ta, officer. Many thanks." lie Slew Eleven Banko Men. "Any reports of o tragedy around hero this aftwrnoon?" Bfked tho broad backed young man of a policeman he encountered at the corner of JotTersca avenue and Brush street last evening "Haven't heard of any," wa tho re ply. "Mebbe their fcodieu hayen't bin fotic yit, Imt It'll probably ba in ihe ; papers in the morning. They brcrg it all on themselves and mustn't blame "Has anything happened?" asked the officer, though betraying but little anxi ety. "Has anything happened?" repeated the broad backed young man with an early crop of freckles on his face. "Well, I should gnrgle that there had! I suppose I look sorter hay seedy, don't I?" "Well, yes, you have a look that way." ! "If you werea bunkoman, you'd grin with delight at sight of me, wouldn't ! you?" "I guess I should!" laughed the ofS- I cer. I "Well, you'd make the mistake of 1 yonr life, old mac ! I'm from the turnip I patch, but .1 know all about tho littlo ! game of bunko. I had only left tha train j when flvo bunko steerers tackled mo, i and wo hadn't gone two blocks when t six more came up. I give 'em fair warcin, and then pitched in. Say! That ; was a tripper of a row while it lasted. " j "But you licked tho 11, I suppce?" "I did. I left ?m down here on a j corner piled up like so much cordwood. i My shoulder is a lectio lame with strik- in, but otherwise I don't feel any bad ' effects. I suppose the city will buiy I them that were killed?" j "Oh, certainly. " i "And the injured will go to the hes- ; pital for ropairs. If yon sea a reporter, , give hira the news. I have to go now.

'I ce.rtainlv should. " i "Well, you'd be climbin the wrong ', gooseberry bush! I'm right on to the games and rackets, from a doublo headed , cent to a prize package, and I can't be fooled. I want to lay out about ten other j rascals before bedtime, and if I meet you agin I'll give yon tho particulars. So long, old man.

Ho had plncdered a store, and ho wasn't the Jones who had run away with a girl. In hunting for an abductor they found n robber. "Well, 1 lied for you," I said to tho man es the officers were ready to lead him away.
