The Centipede's Awful Clutch.
"Rattlesnakes, scorpions, tarantu
las, gila monsters-they are ail good
thiDgs to keep away from," said a
mining engineer recently returned
from the West, "but for all-around
hatefulness, they simply aren't in it
with a centipede. No, they are not
necessarily fatal. No poisonous in
sects are, notwithstanding the stories
one hears to the contrary. But they
are bad enough. Did you ever see
one ? They are not pretty, and they
don't look in the least like these thou
sand-legged worms which we call cen
tipedes here. The genuine thing may
be anywhere from one to six inches
long. I killed two, eight inches in
leDgth, but that is not common. Their
bodies consist of a lot of joints, some
thing like a string of flattened beads.
Each joint has two legs connected
with it, and in the ends of these lies
the poison. There are 19 joints, so
that, although he hasn't a hundred
feet, as his name implies, he is still
very well provided with them. Thirty
eight legs, and every leg a sting ! He
. can't attack you from the ground, of
course. He doesn't have to, for it is
at night when there is the greatest
danger from these pests.
"He is of an investigating turn of
mind, and is fond of exploring one's
body as one lies asleep. Scorpions
or any of the other creatures sting
only when they wish . to, and only in
self-defense; but with a centipede it is
"He may simply walk over one,
with each step making something over
three dozen footprints, and each of
these will leave a running sore, around
which the flesh will finally slough off
-a horrible scar being the result. If
the creature is angered or startled
and it takes very little to annoy him
every claw is instantly driven deep
into the flesh, and the result is ten
times worse.
"So .ar as speed of traveling goes,
the centipede would be lo3t in the
turn by many smaller insects; but in
this clinching specialty of bis, I think
he must be the quickest creature that

"We were camped somewhere near
the southern end of the line dividing
New Mexico from Arizona. It was
just dawn when something woke me.
My instrument man and a rodman lay
on the opposite side of the little open
tent. The rodman was also awake
and was gazing silently, with an ex
pression of horror on his face, at the
bare chest of his companion. Then,
from under the arm of the sleeping
man, appeared the linked body of a
big centipede, fully six inches long.
"It went forward a little way and
stopped; then crawled leisurely on
again. There wa3 nothing to do that
I could think of. A sudden move
ment, a sound, or even a shadow, would
at once cause the brute to fasten him

please him, and he stopped again.
Luckily the transitman uever Btirred.
The inaction was ghastly, and I saw
the rodman'8 hand gradually-very
gradually-move toward the saddle
which served as a pillow, disappearing
under it. Then it slowly emerged,
grasping a heavy pistol, cocked. Al
ways with the same deliberation, the
muzzle was brought, to within a few
inches of the centipede; the barrel
carefully pointed so that it would just
miss the man's breast, and the trigger
pulled. The sleeper awoke with a
scream, starting up and trying to
clutch at the place, but before he could
do so we had pinioned his hands and
forced him back. The centipede, na
turally, was blown to dust, but between

inches away, and reached the end of

Baboons as Water Hunters.
Chacma baboons, and their relatives,
the Anubis baboons, are sometimes
used to discover water in dry seasons,
which they can do when even the
bushman fails to find it. A single
monkey is taken out thirsty and let
loose, when it quarters the ground
like a pointer, and begins to dig with
its hands, and if the sand he dug
away water soon oozes into the hollow.
This feat, which has been seen both
in South Africa and in Angola, on
the western coast, is not so wonderful
as it seems, because it is only done in
the country where water collects in
the hollows on a rocky bottom, wheih
are soon blown over and covered by
sand. The surface becomes dry and
shifting, though lower down the wa
ter and saad lie mixed upon the rocky
bed. But no other animal seems to
have either the scent or the power of
using it possessed by the baboon.
Even if they could detect the water.,
the want of hands to scoop away the
saud and procure it would make their
knowledge as unprofitable as discover
ing water in a well which had no
An Anubis baboon kept in Upper
Egypt was used as a house dog, being
kept chained at the door. It k*iew
all the usual visitors to the house,
but prevented others from entering
by walking up and down across the
doorwaj-. In mediaeval times numbers
of these animals were brought to
Europe and kept as pets, and there is
hardly a nation of Southern or West
ern Europe among whom stories have
not survived of their cleverness,
sociability and courage. That most
familiar to us is the story of the baboon
which rescued the child of the Fitz
gerald family from their burning
- A cat which walked on a sheet
of sticky fly paper the other night, in
Mont Clair, N. J., created a burglar
scare by the noise it made in an ad
joing room to that of Mr. and Mrs.
Scoville. Scovill locked his bedroom
door, leaving his wife thus safe from
intrusion, and slid quietly out of thc
window and hurried to the homes of
several neighbors, whom he aroused
as quickly as possible, and brought
back with him to capture the burglar.
It has not been decided whether the
cat or its capturers were the most sur
prised when the real character of the
burglar was discovered, and though
Scoville opened up several bottles of
wine, the story was too good to keep,
and he is having a hard time of it at
the hands of his friends.
Trees Consumed thc Bodies.
Forty years ago a honey locust, im
ported from Europe, was planted in
the cemetery at Orrington, Me. It
grew and thrived, as the agent who
sold it said that it would, and for a
time its fragrant flowers and beautiful
foliage were the admiration of the
town people. Then the sexton com
plained that the locust was sending
its roots all over the cemetery, there
by increasing his labors when digging
a grave.
For several years thc locusts con
tinued to spread until the trees grew
all over the cemetery and ingress was
difficult. Efforts to kill the trees
were fruitless and cutting them down
only made them grow the more. Fi
nally it was decided to remove the
bodies and this was done. The town
paid the expenses of moving-those
whose relatives had moved away and
could not attend to it.
Strangely enough many of the graves
contained no bones or traces of the
bodies that had been buried. It is
supposed that the roots of the locust
tree3 broke open the coffins and ab
sorbed the bodies, turning them
through the mysterious alchemy of
nature into flowers that scented the
air. Now what was once a cemetery
is a tangled mass of shrubbery into
which a rabbit can scarcely force its
way. -JSreic York Journal.

Hoke Smith Resigned.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9.-The Post
this morning confirms the report that
Hoke Smith has resigned from the
cabinet in an article from which the
following is an extract: "Secretary
Hoke Smith's resignation as a mem
ber of the cabinet and the head of the
interior department is said to be in the
hands of the President.
"The authority for this statement
is a close personal friend of Secretary
Smith. As the story goes, Secretary
Smith forwarded his resignation to the
President at Gray G-ables on the same
day that he authorized the publica
tion in his paper, the Atlanta Journal,
of the editorial declaring that paper
would support Bryan and Sewall, al
though deprecating the platform upon
which they were nominated.
"In his letter to the President it is
said that Secretary Smith announced
thc position that he was going to as
sume, pointed out that he had during
the campaign in Georgia given a sol
emn pledge that he would abide hythe
action of the Chicago convention, and
then went on to say that he felt that
he could, in justice to the President,
no longer remain in his cabinet."
The Post then speculates as to what
the President is going to do about it,
and concludes that if the President
continues in his present attitude of
non-action, Smith will serve out his
time in thc cabinet, but that if he
takes either of several suggested
courses unfavorable to Bryan and the
Chicago platform the Secretary will
insist upon enforcing his resignation
and will return to Georgia and take an
active part in the campaign.
X Rays Find a Bullet in a Lung.
TOLEDO, O., Aug. H.-Mrs. Muchler,
the woman shot by her husband, Lon
Muchler, about a month ago, and who
bas since been in St. Vincent's hospital,
was supposed to be recovering, but with
in the last few days seems worse.
When her death was believed to be
near three bullets were taken out by
probing, but one of the bullets ia still in
her body. In order that tho exact loca
tion of tibe bullet might be determined the
X rays were used this morning by Dr.
H. 0. Haskins, assisted by Dr. C. M.
The patient was taken into the operat
ing room and in the presence of twenty
or thirty physicians and many of the
sisters an exoouure of the entire chest
was made to the tube for thirty minutes,
from ll o'clock !.o 11:30.
The negative was developed this af
ternoon and the result was highly satis
factory. The bullet is in the lower part
of the left lung and will be removed in
such a manner that Mrs. Muchler's life
will be saved.
The apparatun used cost from 400 to
$500, and all experiments made with it
have proved successful, of hands, feet
and limbs, and also on animals. This is
the first experiment on the human chest,
and the operation was watched with in
- Dr. Whiston, a friend to the great
Sir Isaac Newton, and an astronomer of
high repute, professed to believe that hell
is, or will be, located on a comet. He
said : ' ** According to my calcu

which belongs to me, and me alone, lo

damned, in the fiery nucleus* of some
(perhaps yet undiscovered) comet of un
thinkable size. * * * In this wide
circling chariot of fire they (the damned)
will be whirled in the twinkling of an
eye back into space hundreds of millions
of miles from the great torch-bearer of
our system. Thus instantly will the
wretched tenants of this flying hell be
given two unbearable extremes, one of
cold and the other of heat ; this to con

severities of justice."

Biff Collection Taken Up.
OLD ORCHARD, ME., Aug. 0.-This has
been a day of great religious rejoicing at
the Christian alliance camp meeting here,
for the annual collection, which always
inspires wild scenes, was taken up. The
sum total collected was ?100,500, largely
in cash.
"The money has come as the leaves
fall," said the Rev. D W. Lelacheur, at
the close of the services "The world's
record for giving has been broken. Such
a collection has not been taken up since
Christ walked the earth, and may not bo
until He comes again. They say that
history repeats itself. But this is not a
repetition; it is a return to the times of
the primitive church, only better. It is
an advance. It is a revolution. Thank
God for it."
Dr. A. B. Simpson and his co-workers
prayed all nigbt long for such a collection
and when they gathered on the platform
there waa the largest audience before
them ever seen here. At 10:30 o'clock
Dr. Simpson began what proved to be a
marvelously effective and at times thrill
ingly eloquent sermon. Ilespoke without
notes. Back of him was the little band
of his co-workers, with their heads bent
and engaged ic silent prayer for their
leader. It was au impressive sight.
Dr. Simpson next announced the an

to give something for our God?" he ask

?2,500 The donor waa not announced.
Some ono gave Mrs. Morrow another dol

deeply in earnest little woman added it
to the little pile before Dr Simpson.
A woman rose and falteringly said: "I

altar " She broke down and was unable
to go on.
Money was passed up until the desk
before Dr. Simpson was piled high with
billa. Thun an aged lady rose and timidly
said: "Hore is a watch, an heirloom,
very costly, and still more precious, but
I want to give it for Jesus." Miss Louise
Shepard, in charge of the iron for gold
branch pirt of the work, took the watch.
The aged woman could not keep back her
tears as she gav9 up her precious
keepsake, but the act thrilled the vast
audience, and her example was almost
instantly followed by several other wo
men, while some who had no watch sect
A young woman said: "I want to give
my watch I received last Christmas and

passed up to Miss Shepard to be ex
changed for the iron watches of the alli
ance, inscribed, "Gold for Iron, for Josus'
A telegram was handed to Dr. Simpson,
offering 10,000 Bhares of a certain stock
worth x ?50,000 at par. "It would bring
?10,000 now," said Dr. Simpson, but he
added that it would be worth ?25,000 to
the alliance. It is understood that the
donor is a very rich man, who is a very
generous giver. Dr. Simpson, while de
clining to give his name, vouched for him
and for the value of the stock.

Marrying Mustaches.
Thia Bummer sermonette for young
women is from the New York Herald:
If boys wiill be boys, girls will be girls.
It may be unfortunate that many people
marry at a time of life when the phreno
logical bump of common sense has not
yet begun to lift itself from the prairio
like flatne-sB of the cranium, but we can't
reform the laws of the universe, and must,
therefore, do the best we can under the
circumstances. If we could have sixty
year-old heads on twenty-year old bod
ies we Bhould be a little more chary of
assuming relations which can only be
broken by a divorce court. We marry,
however, when the imagination ia ram
pact, ana before we begin to think about
consequences; after that we repent at our
Tho first thing that attracted a certain
young woman was "a pretty mustache."
Whether it was pointed and beautifully
waxed, like Napoleon H's or was of the
shoe brush order, like Bismarck's; wheth
er it was a golden brown or a raven black
are matters not yet known, but that it
was "pretty," and therefore captivating,
catching the affections as a fly is caught
on fly paper, ls happily placed beyond a
doubt. It was this mustache that did the
Then came a secret marriage under as
sumed names. Tue reasons given were
plausible, but the lact was forgotten that
when a man doesn't want to outer the
honeymoon period in a straightforward
way it is because there is something
crooked inside of him.
If you can't marry on broad daylight
principles don't marry at all-that is a
good rule to follow, lt is better to marry
a man without a pretty mustache than a
pretty mustache without any man behind
it. One is apt to get into a tangle when
he goeB it blind on the marriage ques

an assumed name, tell your father to use

The Cotton Tie Fight,
The question of the utility of the wire
cotton tie as against the flat steel tie now
seems to be pretty thoroughly settled. A
test of binding a bale or two bas also
been made in GeorgiB, and it proved even
more satisfactory than that made in this
State. These bales are to be put through
the cotton compresa in Augusta and will
probably be more favorably commented
upon than those pressed in Charleston, as
the wire used ia larger and more flexible.
The resolutions of the Charleston Cot
ton Exchange, published yesterday, while
they are not exactly what the advocates
of the wire tie would have liked to have,
indicate what may be expected when the
cotton goea to the ports tied with wire.
The crop ia going to be short, however,
and the farmers know that tho buyers are
not going to refuse to purchase tho cot
ton. At the same time they are not after

CHICAGO, Aug. 16.-A special from
Tuscon, Arizona, says: Dr. P. M. Smith,
of Hagerstown, Maryland, and a party of
mining mon who have just returned
from the Itipsey mines, report tho fall
of an immense meteor, which struck tho
desert about two miles north of Hall's
Ranch, and about thc same distance
south of tho Repsey mines. It fell on
Saturday night, the 9th instant, about 9
o'clock. Members of the party, who
were camped at Hall's say the concussion
was terrible. Cupboards were upset,
dishes thrown down and houses trembled
like leaves. The noise was like that of
many cannon fired simultaneously. The
air for miles around was fl Hod with sul
phurous gas and the meteor came down
red and smoking.
It covers about two acres of ground,
appearing to be imbedded hundreds of
feet in the earth, and now forms a great
mountain in the desert. A herder's hut
and corral were in the meteor's path
The herder, his wife and three children,
all Mexicans, together with about 1,200
sheep went down under the mighty mass.
Major Thos Hayes, of Louisville, Kv.,
who was of the party, was overcome by
the phenomenon.
"It waa the most brilliant, grand and
awe-inspiring sight I ever witnessed,"
Haid the major. "It is simply beyond
the power of tongue or pen to accurately
describe it. The beat from tho meteor is
so intense that it will be sevoral days bo
fore the mound can bo examined closely."
A large party left here last evening to
view the wonder, and to get further par
ticulars. It is about (IO milea north of
Tucson, and about 10 miles from Globo. J

ATLANTA, GA., Aug. 10.-It is now ad
mitted by members of Hoke Smith's
newspaper staff that the Secretary sent in
his resignation to Mr. Cleveland fully
three weeks ago. It is equally certain
that Mr. Cleveland is using all of his ar
eumentative ability to induco Mr. Smith
to withdraw from his hostile position.
Mr. Smith consistently refuses to give out
any information, bu': in the meantime ho
has-taken up a cudgel that is likely to be
felt oven in Buzzard's Bay. In his paper
this afternoon Mr. Smith had the follow
ing editorial:
"In political emeigencies, as in other
affairs of life, men are sometimes con
strained to mako a 'choice between two
evils' or uncongenial situations. Being
unable after their best efforts to order
things just as thej' would have them,
both sound reason and policy suggest
that they should take this course. Such
an omergency now confronta many Dem
ocrats in all parts of the country. They
have done their best to influence their
party to accept aLd indorse their finan
cial policy, and, having failed in the ef
fort, they have now presented them the
alternative of continued adherence to the
political party with which they have long
associated and whose maintenance they
believe to be needful to protect tho coun
try from bad government and pernicious
legislation or to assist in the restoration
to unchecked power of the party whose
whole record is marked by acts and poli
cies of this character,
"All of us took part in the choice of
delegates to the Chicago convention, with
the implied agroement-an agreement
sanctioned by precedent and honor-that
we would abide by the decision of the
majority of the convention. The decision
-was disappointing and disagreeable to a
large portion ol' the Democratic party in
its relation to one important question.
Had this portion succeeded, instead of
meeting defeat, they would have consid

party as an act of bid faith. Is not the

They would help to rsstore to full power,
and perhaps to perpetuate in power a par

to be destroyed because of its dissention
or its error, in regard to a single question
of transient importance? Shall we aban
don the vital principles and essential pol
icies for which it has long contended sim
ply because of disagreement on this ques
tion? Among those principles and poli
cies are-the preservation of the remain
ing rights of the States and the people
rights often usurped or disregarded by
the Republican party. A just and im
partial system of Federal taxation oppos
ed to the Republican policy of taxation
for the aggrandizement of favored inter
ests and classes; opposition to the growth
and exactions of trusts and monopolies,
which have been the especial objects of
Republican fostering and protection; the
protection of every State and section of
the country from invidious Federal leg

Warped the Steel Rails.
It has been pretty hot in Charleston
and in South Carolina generally, but so
far as reported no railroads have been
"warped." North Carolina, it seems,
has been catching it heavy and the fol

any records they came near breaking up
a railroad temporarily. This extract is
from the Salisbury, N. C., Evening World
Of the 10th instant:
"The north bound train, due here at
10:20 this morning, was delayed over two
hours by a most remarkable cause. Three
miles this side of China Grove the train
was flagged by a trackman who had dis
covered that the track had 'bucked.' The
exceedingly hot rays of the sun pouring
down upon the track had caused the large
steel rails to expand until they bucked
whore they were joined together and left
their original bed. For some distance
the track had been drawn crooked and it
was two hours before it was possible for
the train to pass. Nothing could be heard
from the train and a crowd of anxious
people awaited its arrival here."
