NOT DEAD, BUT SLEEPING. A Horrid, Ugly Snake. Yon Know, and What a Woman Did About It. The San Jose Herald gives the follow ing: In this city resides a lady noted among her friends for her timidity and nervousness, together with an extreme aversion to snakes, toads, and other rep tiles. The sight of a lizard was almost enough to make her tremble, and close proximity to a snake was accompanied by a sort of hysterics. A few evenings ago, while walking in the grass plot near the house, she felt something suddenly strike her underpinning between the ankle and knee*, instinct told her that a “snake had at last fastened to her,” and, giving one loud screech, she bolted for the house. At the first few jumps the thing felt wrathy, and she could feel it insert its fangs, almost to the bone. Before reaching the door she was aware that the cold, clammy coils had unwound themselves, and she reached the interior with just sufficient life to get to the cupboard. Her facul ties were at work instantly to think up an antidote for the poison, and in look ing at her pedestals, she could see the bright red spots where she waswounded. There was no one in the house, and she, remembering that she had heard brandy mentioned as being of service, took down the bottle used for making mince pies, and turning the neck into her mouth drained the bottle, and offering a prayer for the speedy return of her husband, threw herself on the bed, and scrawling on a visiting card “Poisoned by a snake,” went to sleep. Ilow long she remained this way is not known. Her husband arriving saw her, tried to awaken her, and then noticing the in scription on the card, ran out and down to town for a doctor. Arriving, the physician found that she was still alive, and turning her over to get some medicine into her gullet, got his proboscis in line with her breath, and sniffed the whisky. Without saying much to the frightened husband, he administered the potions used to sober people, and in les3 than an hour the woman who had been to drunk to move, was sufficiently recovered to relate what had happened. A search for the snake ended in the discovery of a few wires belonging to a hoop skirt that she had stepped upon, and in her endeavor to free herself the wire had pierced her skin. Imagination and the liquor did the rest. Pneumatic Clocks. One of the latest and most novel ap plications of compressed air is to the regulation of clocks at a distance, which has just been introduced into Vienna. We now get our water and our gas through pipes laid in the streets, and it has been disposed to distribute heat in a similar way; but it is a novel idea to “turn on” the time for our clocks by kindred mechanism. The following is a description of the Vienna system, from an English journal: Tubes are laid in the streets from the central station, in w’liich is the‘‘master clock,” or rather two clocks working together; and should one get wrong the other keeps in motion, and an alarm-bell is rung to indicate to the attendant that something is wrong, and he at once rec tifies it. The air is pumped from the the station, and just as gas or water can be taken irfto houses, by means of pipes, so can the pneumatic tubes be laid, and people can receive their time just as they get their water or gas, the tubes being always kept fully charged with air. The Pope’s Presents. Rome, June 20, 1877. The enhibition of articles presented to the Pope by the faithful of all the Catholic world is closed, after having been open nearly a month. It is, with out doubt, a wonderful collection of the products of art and nature from al most every part of the world. All nominally Christian nations sent gifts to the head of the Roman Church upon his golden jubilee. France, the “eld est son of the Church,” naturally held the most conspicuous position, but England, America, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and other nations were well represented. The bags of gold, and albums whose leaves were bank bills, of course were not exhibited, the money having been immediately poured into the coffers of the Vatican; but the other gifts of gold, silver, precious stones, jewels, laces, silks, skins of animals and all other imaginable riches, were in such profusion that it would be difficult to estimate their value. There were not less than 2,500 chalices of gold or silver gilt, some of them very large and richly chased; and of the rich vest ments of the priests, sacerdotal cloaks and chasubles covering the whole per son, and made of heavy white gold-em broidered silk, there were enough to furnish all of the 305 churches of Rome. The walls of the two galleries —that of the ancient maps and that of the tapestries wrought trom the de signs of Raphael’s cartoons—which connect with each other in a straight line, were hung with embroideries, vestments, laces, rugs and skins, while tables were ranged below, on which were placed the smaller articles, so that they presented the appearance of a magnificent dry goods shop. Marshal Mac Mahon sent a large pic ture of the “Madonna and Child,’’made at the Gobelin Tapestry Works, and wrought with that exquisite perfection of color and form which makes those fabrics of the weaver’s art more beau tiful thau the original oil paintings. The variety of Brussels, Honiton, Bohemian, French and English laces for altar-clothes and dresses of the priests was sufficient to excite the envy of the ladies who know the value of these manufactures. A poor woman, very fanatical, as it seemed from her conversation, exclaimed as she passed slowly along with the crowd before these wonders: “Oh! what a paradise What a consolation for the poor man in the midst of his afflictions!” Among the most conspicuous arti cles were a helmet and sword pre sented to the Pope by the ex-officers of the Pontifical army. The Voce della Verita says: ‘‘The modem sword,like those of the past, is confined to the care of the Pontiff. Will it lone re main there forgotten, or is it written in the divine decrees that it will soon be girded on to some brave side? Cer tainly these officers, in recalling the traditions of 1824, meant to signify an augury and a Christian nnd military desire. Trusting in God, we await its fulfiilment.”lCorrespondence N. Y. Evening Post. Activity in the Wool Trade. There lias been an unprecedented re vival in the wool trade within the last few weeks, and the amount of business done reminds the largest dealers of the liveliest days of the war. The fact that the sales in Boston last week amounted to 4,109,000 pounds, the largest week’s business ever known to the trade in that city, and a million pounds more than the transactions for the corresponding week last year, is sufficient to show the activity of the trade in this commodity. The indications are that the wool-con suming centres will be the scene of un usual life within the next six months. Tile manufacturers have been running on the smallest possible amount of stock for months past, but are now forced by the revival of the trade to buy largely, for fear that prices will be even higher two or three months lienee than they are at the present. The tendency in prices is constantly upward. The wool growers in this part of the state have nearly all sold the cut of the present season realizing perhaps on an average a little less than forty cents a pound, or nearly ten cents more than a year ago. The rise in the price of wool has had the effect of .exciting activity in woolen goods also, but this lias been more marked in the increase of business and tlie more confident feeling among the merchants than increasing the price of goods. The effect of the whole movement will he to greatly improve business at the large number of woolen factories in New England. In truth, these facts indicate a brighter pr -spect for business, and 1 letter times even are predicted. [Norwich Bulletin.

I never allow my fam ily tobe without a bottle In the house, and Invariably carry it with me in my valise on my Journeys.

Will euro costiveness and liver complaint. It Is excellent for dyspepsia or indigestion, by taking a swallow after eating.
