Tho Stinging Tree.
Through the tropical scrubs of
Queensland are very luxuriaat and
beautiful, they are not without their
dangerous drawbacks, for there is one
plant growing in them that is really
aeaaiy in its meets, that Is to say,
deadly in the same way that one would
apply the term to Are; as, if a certain
portion of one's body is burnt by the
Btingiug tree, death would be the result,
It would be as safe to pass through fire
as to f.ill into one of these trees. They
are found growing from two and three
incnes nigh to ten and fifteen feet; in
the old ones the stem is whitish, and
red berries usually grow on the top. It
emits a peculiar smell, but is best
known by its leaf, which is nearly
round on the top, and is jabbed all
around, the edge like the' nettle. All
the leaves are large some larger than
a saucer.
"Sometimes" says a traveler, "while
shooting turkeys in the scrubs, I have
entirely forgotten the stinging tree till
warned of its close proximity by its
smell, and I have theu found myself in
a little forest of them, I was only
stung once, and that was very lightly.
its meets are curious. It leaves no
mark, but the pain is maddening, and
for months afterward the part, when
touched, is tender in rainy weather, or
when it gets wet in washing, etc. I
have seen a man who treats ordinary
pain lightly, roll on the ground in agony
after being stung, and 1 have known a
horse so completely mad after getting
into a grove of the trees that he rushed
open mouthed at every one who ap
proached him, and had to be shot in
the scrub. Dog3, when slung will rush
about, whining piteously, bitting pieces
from the affected part. The . small
stinging trees, a few inches high, are as
dangerous as any, being so hard to see,
and seriously imperiling one's ankles.
The scrub is usually found growing
among palm trees. Scientflo American.
According to Professor C. W. C.
Fuchs's annual report on earthquakes
and volcanic phenomena, there were
297 earthquakes in the year 1831, and
ten volcanic eruptions, the most impor
tant being that of Mauna Loa, in
Hawaii, from which very large lava
streams flowed.
Au interesting experiment in the
transmission of power to a considerable
distance has been reported to the
French Academic des Sciences by M.
Deprez. Two telegraphic wires were
stretched between Miesbach and Mun
ich, a distance of about thirty-five miles,
and work equal to half a horse power
per second was obtained at Munich,
with a velocity In the Miesbach ma
chine of 1500 turns a minute. More
than CO per cent of the work, expended
was recovered, the receiving machine
working a centrifugal pump to feed a
cascade.
The acme of enjoyment in country
riding will be reached when one can
travel about ou his tricycle without the
necessity of "working his passage."
The desideratum seems to have been
attained by the invention of a tricycle
propelled by electricity. A few days
ago such a vehicle was ridden in Lon
don by Professor Ayrton. It was
driven by an electro-motor placed un
der the seat of the rider, while the
Fa ire accumulators, In which energy
was stored for lighting and driving,
were on the foot-board of the tricycle.
There were no treadles on this machine,
so that there could be no questions as
to electricity being the sole propelling
agency.
Mr. William Pole, Fellow of the
Royal Society, has recently published
an important paper on color blindness,
in which he asserts that although the
sensations of color-blind persons differ
from those of people with normal eyes,
they really distinguish with accuracy
between different colors. In proof of
this he cites the fact that no accident
has yet been traced to this defect of
vision on British railways. This is
certainly "important if true," and the
question ought to be thoroughly tested,
as having a direct bearing upon the
safety of thousands of railway travel
ers. Dr. Neuberg, a German physician,
has introduced in the clinic of Profes
sor Esmarch, at Kiel, a new method of
dressing wounds, which was discover
ed by accident. A laborer who had
sustained a compound fracture of tho
forearm eight or ten days before, came
to the clinic with his arm done up in a
thick paste of peat mould. The arm
had been considerably lacerated, but
was found to be in excellent condition,
and healing finely, wittout a sign of
suppuration. Dr. Neuberg was led by
this discovery to investigate the pro
perties of peat mould, and his conclu
sion is that it is peculiarly valuable
for dressing wounds, chiefly on account
of its great power of absorbing the
products of decomposition.
Engineer Melville says that when
Ambler's body was found the indica
tions were that he had DeLong's pis
tol in his hands when he died, or just
before. From this he inferred that
DeLong died before Ambler, and that
the latter had taken the former's pistol
for the purpose of driving away any
animals that m'ght attempt to disturb
the remains of his dead comrades or
shoot them for food should they come
near.

A STRANGE RELEASE.
In 1880, Charlie Page was in old
Mexico, engaged in herding cattle. Not
from the love of wild life, but because
he could earn hard dollars, and later on
because his heart had gone out to Zareta
Hernandez, the daughter of old Hernan
dez on the Mexos.
That he loved the girl was no wonder,
for she was a noted beauty even among
the many beautiful Spanish women
who lived in that section, but that he,
poor Charlie Page, the American,
should have won Zareta's love in return,
when a score of the richest rancberoe,
both Mexican and Spanish, were literally
at her feet, might have been thought
strange.
"fcuch, however, was the condition
of affairs, and despite the objections of
her family and the interference of some
of her other lovers, the girl had become
solemnly engaged to Charlie and
promised to marry him in the fall.
And those who knew her best were
satisfied that at this point opposition
must cease, for if Page lived, Zareta
would be his bride at the time agreed,
or in her grave.
The match was consequently consider
ed in the best light possible by Zareta's
family, and Charlie allowed the freedom
of a future son-in-law. As the old mau
put it:
"Ze boy is no ze Spaniard, an not as
I choose; but, Santa Alaria! zegirl is ze
Spaniard, an she choose!
That told the whole story. Zareta
was a Spanish maid, and would do as
she would do. Let those oppose who
might dare.
The Rubicon once passed, matters
moved on more smoothly, and nothing
seemed to fret the course of true love
except there is always an except the
implacability and ugliness of one of
the girl's discarded lovers, who would
not consent to be cast aside after the
manner of men, but raged and threat
ened, daily growing worse.
This man was Dion Combra, a half-
breed, but a man of wealth a person
furious and ungoverned tem
per, who swore tbe match should not go
on.
Page occasionally met this scowler,
but no words had passed between them
until one evening, late in August,
when he surprised his persistent rival
delivering a passionate lecture to the
mother of Zareta, a quiet little wom
an, who could only tremble before the
profane rage of the half-breed.
Instantly conceiving the cause of
the scene, Charlie sprang forward, and,
thrusting himself before the other,
he cried:
"Draw back, you hound I Why do
yon frighten a woman? I am here to
answer for Zareta Hernandez, and her
mother Is my mother. Another insult
ing word and I'll fling you into the river
yonder I"
For an instant the half-crazed Com
bra stood speechless; then shrieking
out an oath, he tore a knife4 from his
bosom and flung himself upon the
American, only to be met with a sud
den blow, that hurled him senseless, to
ihe grouud, while Page took the little
mother of his sweetheart quickly from
the scene.
Impressing Madam Hernandez with
the necessity of secrecy with regard to
this unpleasant transaction, the young
lover himself forgot it for the next
three hours, within the sweet shelter
of two warm arms, and gazing into
liquid eyes that were filled with yield
ing love; but the matter was suddenly
brought to mind again, as he rode
homeward through the misty moon
light, by the whiz of a knife hurled
from a chaparral by the roadside, and
the sight of a dim figure leaping down
the river bank toward a waiting boat.
With a sudden touch of the sur the
young mau followed, but too late. The
light skis fled from the shore like a
shadow.
That coward I" muttered Charlie, as
he drew rein at the water's edge, "he
would have killed me in good old Span
ish style a knife in the dark. I must
look out for this bravo. That cursed
blade came close 1"
From that time on the American
found it necessary to guard himself
constantly, for the jealousy and hatred
of the half-breed, now thoroughly
aroused, was terrible; and his attempts
upon the life of the other were so fre
quent that Page became at last con
vinced that the werld was not wide
enough for his enemy and himself, and
lie determined to go armed at all mo
menta, and to preserve his own safety
even at the expense of tbe life of Com
bra. .
A bond to keep the peace would have
been as waste paper to the 'infuriated
ranchero, and Page knew it. His only
safety lay in eternal vigilance.
The days were drawing toward fall,
and thecomi ig of her wedding festival
now filled the heart of Zareta; but In
the midst of all, she saw and felt some
tithe of the danger that threatened her
lover, and It made her warm blood run
cold.
Once she spoke to the young Amer
ican of it, but he scoffed, and much as
she loved him the girl could not endure
that so she determined to say nothing,
but to watch.
Even though Charlie denied the dan
ger, she felt assured of it The fierce
rush of passion in her own heart taught
it better than it could her lover what
Combra must feel.
"He'll kill my darling, if he can,"
Zareta whi?nexed to herself. 'I must
guard him."
Unknown to Page, she planned and
contrived to protect him. At times
trusted servants of her own followed
him to and fro and frightened away
any roadside lurkers; at other times, by
various excuses, the maid met her lover
in unexpected paths, and prevented his
appearance near her own home ; and
yet again, she managed to draw the
blood-thirsty Combra away from the
Mexos Valley for days at a time.
Still the danger continued, and both
the American aad his sweetheart knew
it. The disappearance of the half-breed
but put off the day of final reckoning,
and Page never rode without his pistols.
Notwithstanding all his fears and
troubles, the lovers were much together.
and the wedding day drew on apace.
Overcome by love and fear, Zareta
had begged her promised husband not
to ride after dark, and he had given
his word. For this reason his visits to
the ranch of old Hermandes were now
made in the afternoon, and as the sun
touched the crowns of the far-away
mountains he each day bade his Spanish
sweetheart good-bye, and rode three
miles across country to his own home,
where he remained out of sight until
morning.
Man-like, the young American chaf
ed at being thus separated from the
queen of his heart, and locked within
adobe walls from sundown to sunrise;
but with dinging caresses and tearful
eyes poor zareta begged it snouia ds
so.
Only until our marriage, my belov
ed. When we are one, irrevocably,
then this wolf will leave us. Then
once more you will be free."
Perhaps, replied Page. "But sup
pose tbe persecution continues?"
"Then' Bald the girl, with the dark
blood flaming in her cheek, "then, when
I am your wife, you may kill him."
It's agreed," said Charlie, "I will
say no more of this Combra until after
our wedding, but if he then continues
to trouble you, and threatens me, let
him have a care."
It was at last Sunday, and the eere-
mony was to be on Tuesday. Twice
during the last week, even in the day
time, Page had been followed by Indi
ans through the timber red-skins hir
ed by the implacable enemy; and on
this very morning an old friend of, the
American's sent him word at his ranch
not to venture forth that day at all, or
if he did to remain at the home of his
ladylove until the wedding ceremony.
The brow of the young man grew
dark as this message was communicat
ed to him.
"Hide from that dogl Never! By
heaven, I'll ride as I will, and where I
will, and let any man beware how he
eeks to detain me! I am my own mas
ter!"
The vow was, perhaps, a rash one,
but Page buckled a pair of heavy pistols
at his belt, threw his repeating rifle
across his saddle-bow, and put spurs to
his horse with all the determination of
a soldier.
He was thoroughly aronsed, and had
his rival appeared, a duel to the death
would have mostly certainly ensued.
But the journey to Hernandez's ranch
was witnout incident, and all day with
his love seemed to cool the ange. of the
man, so that when, an hoar before sin-
down, he bade Zareta good-bye, and
turned his horse homeward, he had al
most forgotten the danger of which he
had that morning been warned.
The road or trail ran westward, and
after traversing the highland for a cou
ple of miles, descended to the bottom of
the Mexos.
The young lover had ridden as far as
this point, dreaming, and it was not
until tho hoarse bellow of cattle all
around him attracted his attention that
he aroused himself from his reverie.
Then, however, he looked sharply
about him, and struck the spurs to his
horse.
By heavens! A strange herd! I
wonder how they came here? It will
be well to move on. Some of these
steers have ugly eyes and horns."
And indeed they had. The cat to were
strays, a half hundred or more, and
frightened. When in that state they
are often dangerous and will sometimes
attack even mounted men.
Page knew this, and rode both rap
idly and carefully across the bottom
land toward the ford, ready ai any mo
ment to make a run for it if the bel
lowing cattle should make an attack
on him.
He was almost at the river's edge ; a
bit of chappual alone separated him
from the flowing water, when suddenly,
with a hoarse cry, he reined his steed
sharply back upon his haunches, and
clutched wildly at his pistol-holster,
then as suddenly was dragged from his
saddle to the ground, half strangled by 1
a tightening lariat about his throat, and f
the same instant his bood-thirsty enemy
Don Combra, knelt above him, knife in
hand.
With swift and nervous strength he
bound the half-etunned American, and
then dragged him toward the rivers'
brink.
"Carrambaf' hissed the furious half-
breed, glaring into the eyes of his vic
tim, "ze end has come! You would
not mind ze warn, ze debbil gets you
nowl See! I will cut ze t'roat an' tie
stones to ze heels an' drown!"
The man's words rang dully in the
ears of his captive, but the gleam of
his eyes and knife, and the gurgle of
the river close at hand, told Page his
fate.
To cry out were worse than uselesc.
If he must die, let it be like a man.
The madman drew closer to him, un
winding from his waist the scarlet
scarf which he wore.
"Red on ze heels, red on ze t'roat,
eh?" he said, grinning horribly. "Ze
lady love will not marry so soon!"
lie had tied poor Charlie s feet, and
was now engaged in wrapping a large
stone in his red scarf; his knife was
between his teeth.
Pray dog," he snarled. "Ze end has

He waived one end of his scarf belt
above his head.
There was a sudden angry roar, a
deep bellow, a rush of hoofs, a gleam
of white horns, a wild sry, a cloud of
dust and as Page turned he saw the
place where his would-be-murderer had
been, empty!
A wild steer bad transfixed him, and
swept headlong with him into the riv

A MINISTER'S ESCAPE,
From the Asylum to ho Bosom f
His IIomo--How It Was Done.
A prominent minister residing ut the
east has just made the following state
ment, which is herewith reprinted en
tire:
To the Editor of the Herald.
I have always shrunk from appear
ing prominently before the public, but
a sense of duty 1 owe humanity and
the world prompts me to ask this op
portunlty for making a brief statement
in your paper.
Whether it be true with others I can
not say. but during my entire life 1
have frequently been conscious that
something was slowly and silently
working to undermine my health and
life. What it was I could not tell,
but that some enemy of my being
was devouring me within I was
certain. At times I would seem
comparatively well and then I
would be attacked with the most dis
tressing symptoms. I would feel
peculiar pains in various parts of my
body, my head would seem heavy; my
respiration labored; my appetite would
be ravenous one day and I would loathe
food the day following. Then again
would feel weary without exertion;
would become weary at mid-day and
restless at night. Occasionally my
breathing would be labored and myheart
almost motionless, while at other times
it would palpitate violently. I thought
these troubles were the result ol
malaria, and I treated them accord
ingly, but I got no better. Shortly
afterward my stomach became derrang-
ed, my food failed to digest, and the
fluids I passed were or a peculiar odor
and color. And yet I did not realize
that, these things meant anything
serious. Finally 1 consulted a num
ber of eminent physicians, each one of
whom took a different view as to the
cause of my troubles. One said I
was suffering irom Drain disease,
another spinal difficulty; others
heart affection, kidney disease,
etc My symptoms were terrible,
and in the hope of relief I was cauteris
ed, cripped, blistered and subjected to
almost every known form of treatment.
During o&e of these attacks while at
Red Bank, N. J., a physician was call
ed, and left a prescription. After he
had gone, I requested a friend to go and
ask him what he thought of my trouble.
The reply was: "Ob, he will be all
right in a few days; it is only an attack
of delirium tremens." He was at once
informed that this was impossible, as I
had never used any kind of intoxicating
drinks; whereupon he returned, made
inquiries, and changed his prescription.
But all the care of my friends and
physicians availed nothing. I grew
worse constantly, and what is most
terrible to think of, I did not know
what ailed me, nor could I find any one
who did.
During the summer and fall of last
year my pulse ranged from 12 J to 130
per minute; I had no relish for food,
and was indeed a most pitiable object.
I continued in this state until last De
cember, when I became unconscious
and lost my reason, though I
had two physicians in whom my
self and friends placed implicit
confidence. In this condition I was
taken to Brattleboro, Vt, for the pur
pose of being placed in an insane asy
lum. I remained there until last
March, being attended all the while by
my faithful wife who never left me,
and believed that some disease and not
insanity was the cause of all my trou
ble. 1 regained consciousness in March
last and insisted upon being taken
home. The physicians advised that I
remain, but I insisted upon leaving,
and we began the journey, traveling
slowly. J was met at the dock by a
friend wtrum I recognized, and then I
became again unconscious and remain
ed so for over a week. When 1 once
more recognized my friend and knew
my surroundings I determined to try,
as a last resort, a treatment of which I
had heard much, but knew nothing.
Neither myself nor friends had much
faith that it or anything could help me
but we resolved to tiy. We according
ly dismissed the physicians, gave up all
other remedies, and I rejoice to say that
with the blessing of Him who guided
us, I am tod?y a well man, having not
been so vigorous for many years, and I
owe it ail to me wonueriui, almost
miraculous power of Warner's Safe
Kidney Cure, the remedy which I
used.
You can well Imagine how grateful
1 must feel under the circumstances,
and, like a new convert, I earnestly
desire that all who are suffering should
know and avail themselves of this
means of recovery. Had it not been
for the remedy above named I should
doubtless now be within the walls of
an asylum or in my grave. The great
trouble with my case was that no one
seemed to know what I was afflicted
with, and I am positive that thousands
of people in America to-day are in the
same or a similar condition, and do not
know its cause. Kidney troubles are
the most deceptive of all diseases
They have no symptoms of their own,
but ofteu show the symptoms of neai
ly every known complain.. I know
that people are dying every day from
supposed consumption, and many other
diseases, when, could the real cause be
known, it would be found to originate
the kidneys. In their advanced stages
kidney troubles are the most terrible
of all known maladies, as my own ex
perience can fully verify. That
I had Bright'a disease of tbe kidneys
there can be no doubt. That the symp
toms were those of many ether diseases
is equally certain, and that I was doom
ed to a terrible death had I not been
saved as I was, I am positive. The
fallowing letters just received, confirm
this:
