There will be an astonishing development in the case of Ethel Briggs, the 17-year-old girl who was decoyed from home three weeks ago, kept a prisoner a day and a night and finally found by her father and a police officer. It is believed that the girl was hypnotized by one of her abductors who has made a practice of mesmerism, and the case will present features entirely new to medical juris prudence.

How the Man That Receives It Must Suffer. The Thrilling Story Told by a British Sol dierA Horrible Experience That Whitened His Hair Through Years of Torture. "I wonder what sort of a sensation it is to be bitten by a cobra and know that one must die in a half hour or so?" drawled out Capt. Gordon, as he puffed lazily at his cheroot on the veranda of the One Hundred and Ninth hussars' mess at Fyzabad. It was after the mess dinner and the regimental band had bagged their in struments and gone silently away into tne hot stifling night. Half a dozen officers were reclining in "long-sleeved chairs," their feet up on the arms and "pegs," with plenty of ice, standing in long glasses like grim sentries; to keep the demon thirst away. "Well, I know exactly how it feels," j chipped in Bings Bings, "the stoic," as he was called with an earnestness that fairly took away Gordon's breath. "Yes," added the new speaker, "I have 'been thee,' as they say, but lan guage cannot convey the full horror of the feeling. It was years ago, when I first came out to join, and we were stationed in Burmah. 1 was on special duty out in the jungle, and where we were located was the snakes' paradise. Hardly a day passed that we did not kill one or more either in or about the bungalow. It was a continual cry of: 'Samp hai, sahib' (a snake, sir), with a regular clearing out of all the servants. "It really seemed that all the poison ous snakes in India had agents do ing business in that part. Immense boas, sleepy, devilish karaites, vicious asps and adders, and now and then a cobra, chock full of fight. No man thought of putting on his boots with out giving them a good shake first, and even clothes were inspected at arm's length. "I received a rare shock one day a sort of preliminary canter to the cobra episode I am about to relate. I had just finished my bath and was pulling my banian over my head when a huge centipede lost his hold inside of it and rolled down my back. Ugh! it made my flesh creep to look at the loath some, poisonous thing. "Another time I found a cast-off skin of some poisonous snake on the edge of my bed just outside of the monjerie (mosquito curtain), that had been probably slipped off while I slept "You will understand that fresh out from home, as I was, all this sort of thing crept into my dreams; sleeping meant one long, continuous night mare. The bungalow was the usual style of things in Burmah, bamboo and leaves. It was raised some seven or eight feet from the ground on posts; but this only seemed to tempt some unwelcome guests to climb up and nest in the leaves of the thatched roof. During the dry weather they lived in the ground in holes which a mistaken sort of providence provided for them, and when the big rains set in they were drowned out and came to the bunga low as a nice dry place to live in. "One hot, sweltering night I was laying in a state pat asleep and half heat stupor, when I suddenly became aware that a dark, flat object, in which gleamed two spots of malignant light, was moving up along my right leg jnst between it and the moujerie. I could just see it over my limb and the blood m my veins simply froze with horror as I realized that it must be either a cobra or a karaite. The body of the serpent was evidently in the bed and the head elevated just enough to watch my face. A queer constrictive sort of feeling shot up and down my scalp and tne hair stood out straight, I am sure. "There are no words in which I can convey the slightest idea of the full measure of loathsome horror which took possession of me and turned me sick with the intensity of its dreadful- ness when I recognized that I was shut up in that curtain with, and complete ly at the mercy of one of those death- dealing fiends. I dared not move a muscle to call out meant death, for were he aroused, either by fear or an ger, he would deal out death to the nearest living object with the rapidity of lightning. Myhand was lying down beside my thigh and already I could feel his cold, slimy body moving over it. If my blood was frozen before, this chilled the very marrow in my bones. I could see very little, by the light of the flickering lamp which hung in the veranda opposite my door, beyond that flat, swaying head, set like a fiend's toy with those devilish flaming eyes. "I felt that I could not stand it much longer. I should become a raving maniac if something did not happen soon. I almost wished that he would strike and end the dreadful suspense. I knew that he would not voluntarily leave the bed all night, and would most probably coil himself up on my chest and remain there. One year, two years, ten years, I lay thus, with the brute drawing his interminable length over my hands yes, ten years! for next day I was ten years older and my hair, which was black when I went to bed, was as gray as it is now. "Then I must have moved my hand, for the fiend struck without warning and with such devilish rapidity that I saw nothing, only felt the sharp, lance like thrust in my thigh. With a rush my blood, which had been standing still in my veins, I think went tearing through my body again, and before my horrified cry had ceased to ring through the bungalow, I was standing on the floor clear of the wrecked moujerie. As I sprang from the bed when he struck I felt his body go hurtling over my head up against the pillow as 1 threw up the arm he had been lying on. "Brown 'Bangle Brown' as he was called then, because he used to wear a silver bangle on his left wrist that some girl had given him was calling from the next room 'Who is there? who is there?' and the whole bungalow was soon in a turmoil. Cold drops of perspiration rolled down my forehead, and my face was like the face of a dead man, Brown said, when I went into his room Where he had a light. " 'Have you sen a ghost?" he asked. " Worse than that,' I replied. 'I have been bitten by a cobra.' " 'Nonsense, man,' he ejaculated, 'you have been dreaming,' but his face was ashy pale now, too. " 'Here are the marks of his fangs,' I said, as 1 bared my thigh; and there, sure enough, were too tiny punctures and a drop of blood oozing from one. "There could be no doubt about it now his light had swept away the last vestige of hope. All that remained to do was to make a futile effort to stay the deadly poison. Already I could feel a peculiar twitching sensa tion where the lines run from the nose down past the corners of the mouth, and there was a dull, tugging sort of pain in my heart, a feeling as though the blood was being forced through it at an increased pressure. My head was dizzy and my eyes hot and blurred, and it was with the great est difficulty that I could keep my mind from wandering. I could hardly articulate a word, and when I did manage to speak I would say what 1 I did not mean using the wrong word. It was evident that the poison was be ginning to paralyze my brain, and al ready 1 felt an almost unconquerable desire to lie down and go to sleep. "By this time Brown and the others were thoroughly awake to the serious ness of the case, and had started in to do all in their power to save me. Brown was a sort of amateur surgeon, and always carried a small apotnecary establishment with him. I saw him whip out a lance and look at me in a questioning way. I nodded, and in an instant he had the piece surrounding the bite out and his lips applied to the gaping wound. "Here, gentlemen, is the scar," and Bings displayed an ugly looking cica trice that bore unmistakable testimo ny to the heroic course of treatment Brown had adopted. "Young Balston brought me a peg, in desperation; that would have made one of those Bengalie Bazoos who pun ish a bottle of bazaar orandy, at a single sitting, yell with anguish. He admitted to me afterward that Baloo, the bearer, had told him to give uue a strong dose of red pepper and whisky, for it had cured a brother of his once. He had tasted it himself and it was simply liquid fire diluted with whisky, but to me it was only as water. "Giving me & dose of permanganate of potassium; Brown placed me in the hands of two; Sepoy orderlies, with strict orders to keep me going, swear ing that he would shoot the first man that let me stop for to rest for an in stant meant certain death. " 'Now, lads, let's kill the devil,' he said, when he had done all he could to save me; 'we shall find him coiled up in the bed waiting for another victim.' "At these words a sudden fury took possession of me and I said: 'Let me be in at the death I w HI kill him be fore I die myself.' "Grabbing the lamp and a stout stick I rushed into my room, followed rather cautiously by the others. I flashed the light on the bed, holding the stick poised aloft for a quick, strong blow, but there was no object there to vent my fury upon. Then I remembered that I had thrown him np over my head when I jumped from the bed. Telling Brown to throw the pillow over with a quick movement, I held the lamp in my left hand and stood ready to give his cobraship his quietus with a powerful blow. "Quick as a flash the pillow was jerked to the other end of the bed and there was a rush of a dark brown body, with the devilish eyes gleaming like two baleful sparks. The stick dropped from my nerveless grasp and I tumbled to the floor in a heap. It was only a rat! "The perspiration broke out all over my body and I was as limp as a rag. The nerves, strung up to the tension that they had been, suddenly gave way and I could only sob out, hysteri cally: 'Let him go don't kill him, please'.' "I could hear Brown's deep-drawn .'Thank God!' and iu the general sense of relief the rat was allowed to escape. "That is how it feels to be bitten by a cobra," concluded Bings, "as near as I can describe it." Detroit Free Press. Siberia Is Large. A graphic idea of the immense size of Siberia may be gleaned from the following comparison:. All of the states, kingdoms, principalities, em pires, etc., of Europe (except Russia) and all of the United States, including Alaska, could be placed side by side in Siberia, and yet the uncovered space would be equal to a country contain ing an area of 300,000,000 square miles.
