A TERRIBLE BEDFELLOW.' 1 I looked at my neighbor with con siderable curiosity. Ilia face Indicated a man of not over thirty years, a period at which men ara still young; but his hair was as white as fresh-fallen snow. One seldom sees, even on the hoads of the oldest men, hair of snch immaculate whiteness. He sat by my sidB in a car of the Great Western railroad, in Can ada, and was looking ont of the windowi Suddenly turning his head be caught me in the act of staring at him a rudeness of which I was ashamed. I was abont to say words of apology, when he quietly J remarked: . r "Don t mention it, sir; Itd nsed to it" The- frankness of this observation pleased me, and in a very little time we were conversing on terms of familiar acquaintanceship; and before long be told rae the whole story. "I was a soldier in the army of In dia," said he, "and a is often the case with soldiers, I was a little too fond of liquor., One day I got drunk and .was shut up in the , black-hole for it- I slumped down upon the floor of the dungeon, and I was just dropping off to sleep, when I felt a cold, slimy shape crawling across my right hand as it lay stretched out' before my bead on : the floor. I knew at once what it was a snake I Of course my first impulse was to draw awsy my hand; but knowing that if I did so the poisonous reptile ' would probably strike its fangs into me, I lay still, with my heart beating in my breast like a trip hammer. Of course my fright sobered me instantly. I realized all my peril in its fullest extent. O, bow I lamented the hour that I had touched liquor I In every glass of liquor they say there is serpent; but it does not come in the shape it came to me. With a slow undulating motion the reptile dragged its carcass across my face, inch by inch, and crept down over my breast and thrust its head inside my jacket As I felt the hideous scraping of the slimy body over my cheeks it was only by Hie most tremendous effort that I succeeded in" restraining myself from yelling loudly with mingled terror and disgust, " At last I felt the tail wriggling down towards my chin; but imagine what I felt at heart, if you tan imagine it, as I realized that the dreadful creature had coiled itself up under rny jacket as I lay, and had seemingly gone to sleep, for it was as still as death. Evidently it had no idea that I was a human crea ture ; if it had it would never have acted in this manner. All snakes are cow ardly, and they will not approach a man unleFS to strike him in self defense. Thies hours I lay with dreadful weight in my bosom, and each minubn was like an hour to me like a year. ' I seemed to have lived a lifetime in that brief space. Every incident of my life passed across my memory in rapid succession, as they say is the case with a drowning man, I thought ot any mother, away in old England; my bappy borne by the Avon ; my Mary, the girl I loved, and never expected to see them more. " For, no matter how Ion g I bore this, I felt that it would end in death at last. 1 lay as rigid as a corpse, scarcely daring even to breathe, and all the time my breast was growing colder and colder where the snake was lying against it, with nothing but a tbin cotton shirt be tween my skin and its. I knew if I stirred it would strike; but I felt that I could not bear this much longer. Even if I succeeded in -lying still until the guard came, I expected his opening the door and coming in would be my death warrant all the same, for no doubt the reptile would see that I was a man as soon as the light should be let in at the door. At last I heard footsteps ap proaching. There was a rattling at the lock. It was the guard. He opened the door. The snake a cobra di canello, I now saw darting up its huge hooded head, with the hideous rings around its tyes, as if about to strike. I abut my evei and murmured a prayer. Then it glided away with a swift motion, and disappeared in the darkness. I staggered to my feet and tell swooning into the arms o( the guard. For weeks after I was very sick, and when able to be about I found mr hair waa white as you now see it, I have not touched a drop of liquor since. - THE JOSH BILLINGS PAPERS. 1 Ml - ' .

A FEJIALE SPIIINI IN PARIS. A Widow who Makea her Bed on Tlgera' Bklns and Lives 1 ' ' on Preaeivee. i The idle people of Paris are attempt ing to nnravel a riddle in flesh and blood daily propounded on the Champs Ely sees by the woman with coral. Who is she ? She is botween twenty-five and twenty-six; her tawny, or rather golden, complexion avouches her origin for Asiatic. She never wears anything but the deepest mourning, which is intensi fied and made sinister rather than re lieved by tbo blood-red coral buttons which close it high up ber neck, and by the pair of coral bracelets she wears en each wrist Instead of a bonnet she wears a beret of black clotb, whose rim is encircled with coral ; her long, raven tresses flow on each Bide of the beret. She is very wealthy, and inhabits a house, occupied ' solely by herself and retinue, in the Champs Ely sees. Her retinue is formed by two Lascar women, three Hindoos and an African. She never allows the blinds of her house to be opened day, as well as night, lamps are kept constantly burning. Her bed is made of tigers' skins. Her amusements are driving rapidly in the avenues des Champs Elysees in a barouche drawn by twojet black ponies, smoking opium, in pistol shooting in her drawing-room (where ber target is a blonde doll, dressed like an English woman) or in chanting mournful songs, which she ac companies upon a sort of guitar; night is her favorite time for singing. She eats nothing but fruit and preserves. The rumor which finds most credence is that she is the widow of a very wealthy and distinguished person of the Island of Sumatra. She one day took it into her head that her husband was in love with the wife of an English naval officer, and she believed the latter returned his love. Her anger rose to the frantic hight passions attain in the torrid clime, and she so exasperated her husband by ber baseless ire, that he forgot the re serve a man owes even to a frantic wife, and gave ber a cruel thrashing. When reason recovered ber wonted dominion he was so ashamed of what he had done that he blow out his brains. Failures ot National Banks. The follewing is a list of National Banks that have failed and are now in the hands, of the receivers, with the amount of circulating notes issued to each: The First National Bank of Attica, New York, $45,000; the Merchants' Na tional Bank of Washington, D. C, f 180,- 000; the Venango National Bauk of Franklin, i'enasylvama, fcco.uuu ; the Tenneseee National Bank of Memphis, Tennessee, $90,000; the First National Bnnk ef Newton, Massachusetts, $130, 000; the First National Bank of Selma, Alabama, $S5,O00; the First National Bank of New Orleans, Louisiana, $180, 000. la addition to these, two bank have taken up their bonds and deposited lawful money in the Treasury of the United States to the amount of their outstanding circulation, viz: The First National Bank of Carondelet New Orleans, $25,000; the First National Bank of Columbia, New Orleans, $11, 990, makiog a total of $r:l2,400 which has reverted to the Government, upon the return and destruction of which an equal amount of circulation will be at the disposal of the Controller of the Currency for distribution, according to the terms and conditiona prescribed in the National Currency act, suqject to the same rules that governed the distribu tion of the amount originally authorized by the act of Con cress. Death by ta Optra Class. A discovery of great practical inter est has been made by M. Gabriel Guil lemot, of Paris. It is the discovery of a new kind of death, appropriately named " death by the ivory opera glass." M. Guillemot df tnaals no na tional recompense for Lis discovery, al-tbjH.-B, he certainly takes rank among the benefactors of his race in pointing out the daacers and devising the rem edy. 1st Lis own remarkable words: "Yoa go to the thratre, jojeas uh anticipations Lr the proposed amuse ment The pity r-onoaencet, it interests, it moves you. Eatir!y aosorbi in the illusion of the acne. jo forget aetual hie end. a'.l h tvi!j v.:h wLitfc it is LARGEST CITY CHICCEATION. strewn suddenly an opera glass, falling from an upper box, recalls you to reality by falling square on your head and breaking it The accident is happily quite rare, but it occurs at least once every five years ; it it therefore evidently worth while that we guard against it The best pre caution that I can imagine is to suppress altogether opera glasses of ivory. Since craniums are made of this same sub stance, why should not opera glasses be constructed of pasteboard covored with velvet T" Until this suggestion is car ried out it will evidently be the part of all prudent persons to take teats only in the top gallery.
