8UXS1.TIONS Of A MAS WHO (JOTS INTO
TJIK CI.UTCItKS OP A DEVII. KISII.
"We were lying nbout half a mile
off tho beach at tho Bnrbailocd, over
hauling tho standing rigging," said
Jnracs Glllis, ablo seaman, "when
tho mate ordered John Webb, nu
apprentice boy, and myself into tho
yawl, which had been covered and
brought around to the port Hide, that
some painting might be done just
abaft tho mainmast. It was a terri
bly hot day, with the water very
warm nnd tho men having little
energy. The paint was lowered
down to us, and while I used tho
brush the boy held tho yawl in posi
tion. We had been at work for
about a quarter of an hour when the
bov suddenly yelled out in affright,
and as I turned to him he declared
that he had seen a horrible looking
object pass under the boat, and ho
on under the ship.
There arc plenty of strange crea
tures floating about in those waters,
and a natch of seaweed will some
times assume a queer shape. I
laughed at the boy's fears, but at
the same time saw how pale and
frightened he looked.
" What's wanted below there?'
called tho mate as he leaned over
the rail, having hoard Webb's cry
" 4I I saw something go under
tho boat, sir.'
" 'Oh, you did. Well, if you
bawl out again you'll feel something
go under your jacket.'
"T linrrnn wnrk nnrnin. nnd ll!l(l
been at it only three or four minutes
when the yawl heaved away from
the ship two or three feet, and at
the same instant tho boy screamed
out again. His voice had scarcely
reached my cars when something
flashed before my eyes, something
caught my arm and pulled it down
and pinned it fast to my body, and
in five seconds more I knew what
had happened. A devil fish had
flung one of his arms about me.
Webb was screaming at tho top of
his voice, and as I got a look at him
I saw that two of the beast's feelers
wero clutching him. The arm or
feeler winch had reached mo pinned
my arm to my side as if in u vise,
making a clean wrap mound my
body, and tho extreme end of the
feeler crept up along my neck nnd
fate. Talk of pain; I never felt
anything like it. The teeth of a
bulldog couldn't have hurt worse. It
was a burning, biting, blistering
sensation, as if a live coal had been
laid on the flesh. I added my yells
to those of Webb, but before any
ono came to the rail I was jciked to
my knees in the boat and saw that
the creature's object was to pull me
overboard. I heard the boy go down
and thrash about, and then three of
the men came to our assistance.
"Tho devil fish had outwitted him
self. Ho had gone under tho ship
and fastened to her bottom or keel,
and as soon as he began pulling on
us he of course pulled the yawl close
against the ship's side. That closed
the gap, nnd he could not pull us
OTcrboard, although I think ho
would have upset the yawl, for we
were both down on her starboard
side and she was almost on her beam
ends when the men jumped down.
They began to cut and slash and
hack with their knives, and after
two or three minutes they had us
free not of the arms, but of the
creature. We were hoisted on board
howling and groaning, with tho
feelers still biting, and they had to
be cut from us almost by inches.
Webb got it far worse than I did, as
lie wore a thin cotton shirt and was
barefooted. Ho was bitten on one
foot, both hands and across tho
breast, and it was a long two weeks
before he was on deck again, his
faco swelled up until ono eye wns
closed, and the poison made mo ill
for many days. Wherever one of the
cups or suckers took hold tho skin
was entirely taken off, nnd it seemed
as if pins had been stuck in the raw
flesh. A native doctor brought mo
somo herbs of which to make a
poultice; and, though that relieved
the pain and helped me to get around
again, it was months before ray face
was entirely well." New York
New York, Feb. 21 The Slar'a
London cablegram says : Despatches
from India state that Russian agents
arc organizing another rising of the
Ghilzai tribes against England's
ally, the Ameer of Afghanistan.
Tho Ghilzai chiefs have received
large supplies of Russian arms,
nmuuition and trcasuro, and aro act
ing under tho direction of Russian
olllcers. Tho enormous concentra
tion of Russian troops and war
material at Mnrv, Samarcand and
strategic points threatening Herat
indicates an early Russian advance
in the dircotion'of Herat and gives
color to tho reported subsidizing of
tho Ghilazais by tho Russians.
It has leaked out that the Indian
Government has warned the Homo
Cabinet that tho Ameer will shortly
require effectivo support and has
asked fur sanction to push forward
troop3 to Caiiadahar for that pur
pose The application js under
consideration, and in the meantime
tho Indian 'authorities are taking
matters in tholr own hands as usual
nnd making tho necessary disposl-
tion of troops and stores in anticipa
tion of orders for an advance.
Liberal members of tho House of
Commons nsscrt that ovidence will
shortly be brought to tho notice of
Parliament proving that Salisbury's
policy lias trtiito recently brought
tho country within a measurable dis
tance of war with liussia and that
the relations between the two conn
tiics are dangerously strained.
SOME SMALL STATES.
It would probably puzzle most
pcoplo to give a complete list of the
sovereign states of Europe. Wo
don't mean to suggest that they
would bo likely to omit Montenegro,
or Scrvia, or Belgium, or Greece, or
ucn Monaco, with its 7,200 sub
jects. But theio is Andorra. Ono
is prono to overlook its GOO square
miles, and 10,000 mountaineers.
And there is San Marino, tho sole
Btirvivor of the old and onco numer
ous republics of Italy. It contains
only about 00 square miles and 8,000
inhabitants; yet it is a military
power, and has an army of 950 men,
while its revenue amounts to nearly
823,000 a year. And there is the
principality of Lichtcnstcin, between
the Tyrol and Switzerland. There
is only a very little of this charming
country. Tho land measures but
twelve or thirteen miles in length,
and the proud nation that inhabits
it consists of only 10,000 souls;
but, such as it is, tins little princi
pality exists under the rule of his
most transparent Highness John II. ;
and it is protected by intimate
alliance, with Austria. Still more
restricted in extent is the republic
of Moresnet, between Vervicrs, in
Belgium, and Atx-la-Chapcllc. Its
dominion reaches over only four
square miles, it possesses about
0,000 inhabitants, and its annual
revenue amounts to less than $2,500.
Tho national arm' consists of one
soldier, who also acls as policeman.

1 read it, ami my near niouier uougiu

And oh, how happy 1 ami I cannot ex
