HORRIBLE SNAKE ST0KI
The Perils of ProapoctlDif In North
From the Denver (Col.) World, 8th.
Messrs. U. 8. Perkins. Joseph Straley
aud John F. Stienrack, a party of Chi
cago tourists, returned yesterdny from a
three months' trip through Park, Sum
. , . T i j". .... .i
mit and uranae counties, xuey uneu
out an outfit at Simpson's corral last
July, and drove down southward and
- 1 . .. r- . I ' . o l
prospected Irom uraime to rorv oieeic,
on the Union Pacific.
These gentlemen relate a most horri
ble snake story, which will bear repeat
ing. They were encamped in Elk Head
Mountains, in the North Park, on the
ia.u f ina. fiaomW whpn thev met
Vk man .v.T. , -
with a misfortune which cost one of the
party his hie. The party arrived in
camp late one nisht after a day's hunt
and ramble over the hills. Alter a
hearty supper tho party lay down on
iL.kl.nli.ii urnmirl the fire, which had
been built in the cleft el some large
quartz rocks, and all were soon last
the night by a heavy weight upon his
chest. At nrst ne supposeu it wao mo
brother's hand, but as it did not move,
and becoming nervous and alarmed,
he raised his head and was hor
rified to find a large mountain
rattlesnake coiled up upon his cnest,
with its head nestled down in the center
of the coil. It was nearly daylight, but
Mr. Straley was so paralyzed wun iear
that he could not make a noise and dared
not move. He recovered his presence
of mind so far as to be ahle to draw me
uii,i .... K!a fnpp This movement
startled the reptile monster, which glided
Irom him to nis Dromer, wuo Bury
ing with him. The snake passed from
his breast to bis brother's face, when, in
a fatal moment, Henry Starley raised
l: i A .A i.a, it. aRT There was a
fierce rattle and a loud cry from the half
awakened boy and tne mourner ouneu
its fangs in bis right hand and a second
time in his cheek. There was a horrible
tVnm ITpnrv Starlev as the Doer
Ol Ci.lU J -
boy jumped to his feet, while the snake
glided Irom tne Dianseis iu a im&e ui
i. .Ka amhpm nf the fire. Mr.
venkins fired his revolver at the horrible
creature, and at the secono. buji uruuui
him down. ' .
Poor young Straley was soon suffering
the most iutense ago'ny. His brother, at
his request, cnt out a large portion of
his cheek in hopes that the poison had
not penetrated very deep, and a. tight
ligature was bound around the wrist of
tbe bitten hand, which was bathed in
cold wa:er. But nothing the horrified
young man could do availed to save the
Eoor boy. He died in less than two
ours in the most terrible agony. Had
the party been supplied with a plentiful
supply of whisky his life m.ght have
been saved, but they had none. The
body changed color within three hours
after the accident. The young men
conveyed the corpse to Fort Steele,
whence it was shipped home to Chicagd
lor interment. The snake measured
four feet in length and bad nine rattles,
which were taken off, and which were
shown to our reporter at the corral last
evening. This is certainly one of the
saddest episodes of mountain tife which
bas been brought to uotice this season.
In terra tins; rift-mee.
From the New York World.
There is an impression prevalent
among those who are uninformed on the
subject that life insurance companies
rarely pay, without litigation, claims
arising from the death of insured mem
bers. The truth contradicts this im
Two years ago there were compiled
and publish by an insurance journal in
Baltimore the experiences in tuis regard,
previous to Uecepiber, l lou, ot
aeventr-one American life insnrance
companies, as given by the officers of tbe
respective companies. Ihe list inciud
H nil of the large Amerian companies
pyppnt two. Commissioner Clarke, of
Manachusetts. in his recent annual re
port gives tbe experience for 1873 of
forty-One compauiee rryuruuic to mm.
The facts in this connection are interest
ing. From the report of the seventy-one
companies it appears that there had an
aggregate of 57,323 death losses reported
and claims made amounting to $13'.),
3r6,577.08. Of this number 46,!ttj, am
ounting to f 137,623,475 7ti, had been
paid without litigation; ISO wrrs at that
date unsettled many of lhcm being not
vet due liv tbe terms of t'ae policy leav
ing only 1M which had been litigated or
resisted. Of the number litigated 8S
had heen raid after litigation bad result
ed adversely to the companies, or had
been compromised during its progress
and 101 bad been successfully resisted
Commissioner Clarke's report of the
forty-one companies mentioned shows
that of $31,7j7,7H4 of reported claims
only $949,905, being 3.U1 per cent,
Thus falls lo the ground tbe oft repeat
ed assertion that lite insurance com
panics rarely pay a policy claim except
at tbe end oi a law suit.
A recent celebration of an ancient
festival, the rush-bearing wake, in
Manchester, England, has revived
recollections of the important position
which ruehes used to occupy in the
houses. As earlv as the time of William
the Conqueror, there was set down in the
statute books an act providing that
monarch's favorites with straw for the
floors of their bed chambers in winter.
and with straw and rushes for their
floors in summer. Carpets were, for
centuries after, an unknown luxury; and
in .their place the floors of royal pal
aces, of churches, of houses and dwell
ings of every sort, were strewn with
rushes and straw, occasionally mingled
with sweet herbs. An entry in the
household roll of Edward II informs ns
that a certain sum was paid for straw
brought from York to Newcastle for the
Kine'g chamber. Froissart relates that
the room in which Gaston, Count de
coix. died was strewed with rushes and
green leaves, and had the walls hung
with fresh boughs, for the sake of their
coolness and perfume.
Uven Uueeu Elizabeth, in all her gran
deur, swept her gorgeous robes over a
carpet of rushes as she moved about her
palaces. One of the old historians in
cidentally remarks that, after Elizabeth
had dined tbe remains of the least were
habitually cast from tbe table on to the
rushes underneath, and the dogs came
in and ate what they would of the refuse.
As the rushes were not often renewed
tbe filth that accumulated and festered
among tbem may be easier imagined
than described. ' In the earlier part of
the sixteenth century, Erasmus wrote a
letter to his friend, Dr. tranc:3, physi
cian to Cardinal Woolsey, in which he
condemned the use of rushes as most
unclean, and a prolific source of dis
ease. According to his statement, tbe
lowest layer of rushes often lay undis
turbed on a floor for twenty years, and
the dirt and foul matters concealed
therein (beer, greese, and fragments ot
victuals) sent up powerfully-unsavory
odors that offended the nostrils and en
gendered pestilence. Erasmus recom
mended the banishment ot rushes, and
a better ventilation in houses, as sani
tary measures demanded for the health
of the people.
The first English theatres were carpet
ed on tbe stage with rushes. The Globe
Theatre was thatched with the same
light, combustible material; and during
the performance of Henry VIII., in
1613, the wadding from a cannon fired in
salute, lodged among the layers, and di
rectly the building was in flames and
burned down. Rushes wero also strewn
n the way along which pageants and
processions passed. Thus, at the coro
nation of Henry V., as the cavalcade ap
proaches, the attendants cry:
More rushes, more rushes 1
lienry IV., Act 5. Scene 5.
Out of tbe custom of strewing the
earthern or paved floors of churches
with rushes, grew a religious festival
called the Rush Bearing, or tbe Rush-
Bearinir. Wake. In remote parts ot En
gland it is still perpetuated. On thetop
of a cart laden with evenly cut rushes,
and drawn by gayly-caparisoned horses,
sit a number of men holding garlands of
artificial flowers and surrounded with
banners. Preceding the cart is a com
pany of rrorris dancers, fantastically
dressed, one of them having a bell at
tached to a belt around his waist, and
carrying a box in which to collect money
from the spectators. The procession
parades the principal streets on its way
to the parish church, stopping to dance
at the prominent places on the route.
Arrived at the church, the rushes are de
posited and the garlands hung up, to re
main until thev are replaced by others
oa tbe next recurrence of the annual
An Alnddln Cavern.
Lucv H. Hooper, writing to the Phila
delphia Press, concerning the warehouse
of one of the largest glass manufactur
ers in Paris, says: Never did 1 benoid
any more exquisite realization of that
genii built palace of Aladdin, which was
constructed oi snppuiree, ruuies, um
monds and emeralds. The establish
ment is of vast extent, and down tne
i . . L i:
immense snow room aireicu uueo ui
tableB, all loaded with the glittering
marvels ot the glass blower s art, amaze
with eolor lustrous with cold, and spark
ling as with the fire of diamonds. Here
be miles of toilet Bets; forests of roses;
crystal oandelebra that might have been
stolen from the ice-queen's palace, so
nerfectlv does their transparent tracery
and efflorescence recall the most delicate
workmanship of the frost; painted ser
vices whose flowers Flora might have de
signed and Titania copied, a wilderness ot
beauty and light. Here is a pair of lamps,
coloring agure and the painting a single
broken lily on the delicate blue back
ground; and here a pair of vases of the
same celestial blue, tbe design a oou
quet of yellow roses on one, a group of
canary birds on the other. Here tower
a pair of candelabra all tinted with hues
of ruby and emerald, and there a crys
tal vase colorless as ice and as dainty
in tracery as the snow, w e were shown
vases of the most exquisite pale gray,
set in frameworks of trosted silver, and
besides the cool perfection of their quiet
neutral liuts stands a dressing glass, its
gilded frame overrun with climbing roses
which we long to pluck and smell, and
yet which are only of china. The roof
of this Aladdin cavern is hung for stal
actites with glittering chandeliers, huge
marvels of glasa-worker'i art, one of
which, a gigantic bouquet of crystal
flowers as it seems, of size befitting the
dome of the Capitol of Washington, is
valued at $01100, nd was manufactured
for the great Frenuh Exposition of 18G7.
It goes to Turkey, I understand."
Among the prisoners at the Maine
penitentiary is a former piaeticing phy
aician and contributor to several high
toned literary periodicals. For several
years he corresponded on intimate terms
with Ednar A. l'oe, who had a high esti
mation of his literary judgment. At
one time he acquired some celebrity by
announcing his dissent from the New
tonian theory of gravitation, and also
trom the nebular theory of La Place,

long time wanted to ask you a favor.
" Name it," said the maestro. " It is,"
replied tbe merchant, "that you will

sponded Rossini, and he took a photo
graph from his pocket-book and wrote
under it: "To the friend of my stomach."
FRIDAY EVEN ING.
Potentate and the Pope.
These remarks are very significant,
and aoything but encouraging. Our
century is set adrift by religious doubts
and distracted political passions. That
learned discipline, which is true art and
which is transmitted from century to
century by tbe means called tradition,
appears not to exist in politics.
European kings, emperors and govern
ments go on in tho same people-devour
ing way, that they followed ages and
aces aeo: thev seem to have gaiued
little from past experience, to have
learned nothing: bv the faults and sor
rows of their ancestors; they are forever
aeekine. with the old Satan, pride, per
sonal power, and not tbe good of the
neoDle. Two or tbree ueatns wouia
change European politics amazingly.
The Emperor of Germany, the Pope and
the Oueen of Enaland. if gathered to
their forefathers, would leave behind
them a heritage of political changes
more complete than one dares to think
of. Tbe Pope's health is so good, that
it gives security on his side, at least,
of many years of life. He
holds dailv receptions, not one, but
many; school committees; French
priests en voyage or pilgrimage; foreign
visitors to Rome, editors of clerical
journals, etc., etc. ; the name is legion of
the genie, wbo daily seen an audience oi
tbe iioly Eatner, ana nis oeuemcuou.
He walks in the Garden of the Vatican
on clear days; on many days in the
Raphael Loggie; and goes up and down
stairs faster than any of the Court Car
dinals; he often laughs merrily, 1 am
told, at some of the old gentlemen who
surround him, and cries out gayly:
"I'm older than any of you; you areJ

And so they are, it is true. iis dull
ness has never left the Vatican since the
autumn of 1870, four years this very day,
or to-morrow, when he went to the
Termini Piazza, opposite the Baths of
Diocletian, and blessed the Aqua Pio
Mareia and tbe new fountain. During
these four years the Cardinals and Mon
signore of bis Court have suffered greatly
from the Vatican confinement; they
have to leave Rome at certain periods
lor change of air; some have died; others
have been afflicted with alarming iilnes
ses; Cardinal Amat shas lately had a
Btroke of apoplexy; but His Holiness
seems to thrive on that which is so in
jurious to the others confinement.
