TALES OF THE TEETH.
TRADITIONS, OMENS AND ADAGES AMONG -THE UNEDUCATED. JUl flvrt* of Superstitions Coneernlog the Teeth—Charms and Other Beinedles for 'Toothache—English and Irish Recipes. Tlie Prayer Cure. The teeth and the aches to which they give rise have been subjects of many «trange ideas among uneducated people. Teeth have even been worshiped, and are still venerated as relics in some Catholic shrines. Buddha's tooth is preserved in a temple in India, and Ceylonese worshiped the tooth of a monkey, while an elephant's tooth and shark's tooth served a similar purpose among the Malabar Islanders and the Tonga Islanders respectively Siam ese valued a monkey's tooth bo highly that they are reported to have offered the Portuguese 700,000 crowns for it. There was a tradition that, from the time Chosroes, the Persian, carried off a piece of the true cross from Constantino ple. the number of teeth in the mouths of men were reduced -from thirty-two to twenty-three. It is needless to say that we still have thirty-two. Teeth have often been worn as amulets. Sharks' teeth serve this purpose in Samoa. It was formerly thought that a wolf's tooth, worn in a bag about the neck, would chase fear away from the possessor. The hack tooth of a horse, found by chance, will, say the Irish, keep you supplied with money OMKN8 AND ADAGES. There are many omens connected with infants' teeth, as well as those of adults. If a child teethe early, it is thought in England to predict more children. "Soon teeth, soon toes," is the adage, both in that country and in Sweden. If a tooth comes first in the upper jaw it is, on the contrary, an omen of early death, as tbs child cannot survive so potent a disaster. An old work, published in 1633, tells us that to loose a tooth or an eye is also to lose some friend or kinsman, or is, at least, attended by some ill luck. He who has his teeth wide apart is there said to be attended by good luck. Breton mothers will not touch infants' gums, lest the teeth grow crooked. To are am of teeth was a warning of some disaster, unlesf you dreamed they fell out. The period of teething being an anxious one in childhood, it is extremely impor tant to have it over with. In Snssex, England, a necklace of beads made from peony root was placed on the child's neck to assist this operation, and one of amber heads was also thought powerful. It was also said that first teeth must not be thrown away when they fall out. for if any animal got such a trophy the next tooth would be like that of the animal finding the old one. In Nova Scotia, and in some parts of the United States, chil dren are told that the new tooth will be a gold one if the tongue is kept ont of the old cavity. Folk lore Is full of odd notions about the toothache, and many queer remedies are current for it. It was once thought to -be caused by a worm. One of the most potent remedies was thought to be a charm of some kind or other. In England this charm is a rhyme or prayer written on a piece of paper. Verses for this purpose are current in Ger many to this day. St. Appollinus was especially invoked for this malady in the Thirteenth century. A work published in 1595 prescribes the following remedy The patient was to in hale the smoke from a vessel in which dried herbs were mixed with live coals. He must then breathe over a cup holding water mixed with wax and serum, when it was said that a worm, the cause of the trouble, would appear in the cup. ANOTIIER STRANGE REMEDY. Nearly a century later we find another strange remedy "With an iron nail raise end cut the gum from about the teeth until it bleed, and that some of the blood spill upon the nail. Then drive it into a wooden beam up to the head. After this, is done you never shall have the tooth ache in ail your life." Another old writer of the same period, Aubrey, gives popular remedies for the toothache. A splinter of wood from a gibbet was thought efficacious in the north of England, while in Devonshire it was thought best to bite a tooth from a skull in a grave yard, and carry it in the pocket as a charm. In another part of England, an equally ghastly amulet was a tooth drawn from the mouth of a corpse, carried In the pocket. The paw of alive mole or a double nut were also prescribed as preventive charms. To dress the left foot and leg before the right is equally effective. Some of the Irish cures for the tooth ache were fully as ghastly as those cited" above. One of those empirical recipes bids you go to a grave, kneel upon it, say three paters and three aves for the soul of the dead, then chew a handful of grass taken from the grave, spitting it out. The toothache will never after trouble you. Another remedy is to vow never to comb your hair on EViday, Invoking the Creator, the Virgin and the new moon. Yon may afterwards neglect the two first, but must kneel and say five prayers on first behold ing the new moon. The two jaw bones of a haddock have been powerful in al laying the toothache ever since the mir acle of the loaves and fishes. If you wish to avoid the toothache, say the sons of Erin, never shave on Sunday.—Globe Democrat. Stonewall Jackson and the Priest. Dr. William Jones, the gallant Con federate veteran, was standing with some friends on Broad street bridge waiting for the procession on Decoration day. "I wonder," someone asked, "if any body of troops ever moved exactly on tiihe?" "Never," replied the doctor quietly, "I imagine, since Stonewall Jackson died." This seemed to set the reminiscental mood and the doctor continued: ."By. the way, did you ever hear the close of theprayer made by Father Dubert, the brmve Catholio priest who was chap lain of Hay's brigade? It was in New Or leans. on abig Confederate day, and Father Dubert was praying He had eulogized the Confederate soldier in Gen. Stonewall Jackson In particular—when he closed with these words "And now. Almighty Ood our Father, thou knowest that when thou mad eat up thy mind that the Con federacy should be defeated in war thou found it necessary to remove thy servant, Stonewall Jackson, before thou couldst accomplish thy purpose i"—Atlanta Con stitution.

A Trick of Cola Tossing. A man walked into an uptown saloon the other day and called for a glass of beer. He fished anew silver dollar from his pocket, spun it on the counter, and offered to bet the bartender the beer that It would turn up heads. The bartender took the bet and won it, for tails were up when the coin settled. A well dressed countryman by the bar looked Interested, and the man exclaimed pettishly that he would call the next spin for a dollar. "Done," said the countryman. The man spun the dollar, called tails and won. "Mere luck," said the countryman, dis gustedly. "or else a trick. I'll go you an other dollar on it if you let me spin it." The man assented, and the countryman spun the dollar The man called tails, and tails appeared. As the countryman, with an exclamation, turned to go, the man said, in a patronizing tone: "I bet 1 can call it four times out of five." "Five dollars on it." said the country man, hotly The man put up the money with the bartender, and, as the countryman spun the dollar, called tails five successive times The dollar settled tails four times, and the man pocketed the bet. Then he said "Look here, greeny, since I've won seven of your dollars and don't expect to work this city again very soon. I'll tell you something you didn't know When you spin a coin the side that has the heaviest markings will settle at the bot tom nine times out of ten, provided the surface you spwi on is perfectly level. With anew silver dollar you'll win by calling tails just nine times in ten on the long run. Other coins don't have such a difference in weight between the mold ings of the two sides, and ain't so certain, and in old silver dollars the difference is lessened by the wearing off of the inscrip tions. You stick to new silver dollars, work it gently, and you'll have your $7 back before night. Good day."—New York Sun. How to Make Good Koumiss. The Bashkirs are renowned for their skill in making koumiss, or fermented mares' milk, which is now extensively consumed by patients suffering from dys peptic and wasting diseases, and so easy is it of digestion that invalids drink ten, fifteen, and occasionally even twenty champagne bottles a day, while a Bashkir is able to overcome a couple of gallons at a sitting, and |n a hour or two to be ready for more. To insure good koumiss it is essential that the mares be of the steppe breed, and fed on steppe pasture. They are milked from four to eight times a day. the foal being kept apart from the mother, and allowed to suck only in the night time- The mare will 'not give her milk, however, unless at the time of milking her foal is brought to her side, when such is the joy of reunion that after sundry acts of loving and smelling and kissing, the maternal feeling shows Itself by her sometimes giving milk from both nipples at once. Milking is done by the Bashkir women who. taking a position close to the hind legs of the mare, rest on one knee, and on the other support a pail directly under the udder, pulling at each nipple in turn, and receiving from three to four pints each time of milking To make koumiss the milk is beaten up in a churn (but not suffi ciently to produce butter), and by fermen tation is converted after twenty-four hours into weak koumiss, from which con dition after twelve hours more it passes into a medium degree of strength, whilst strong koumiss is produced by assiduous agitation of the milk for two or three days, and it is then said to be slightly intoxica- D.D., in I ting.—Henry Lansdell, Magazine Harper's Curlonit ami Clique Decorations. A lady riding in an elevated train re cently was attracted by the singular beauty of a hand bag carried by the lady' sitting by her side Curiosity overcame reserve before long, and she remarked upon the beauty of the bag "It vras made from the skin of a rat tlesnake," said the owner, calmly. ,:How wonderfully pretty it is!" ex claimed the admirer, leaning forward to examine it more carefully The owner looked pleased and surprised. "You are the very first person," she said, "to whom I have told what it is that has not shrunk from it, saying, '1 don't see how you can carry it!* This was one of Barnum's big rattlesnakes. A friend of mine is employed in the circus men agerie, and when this reptile died he gave me the skin. I have a small rug made of it, besides this bag, and it is bordered with the skin of a leopard that also be longed to Barnum. I nave the skins of several of Barnum's dead animals and they make beautiful articles. That of a giraffo made into a robe bordered with tiger fur is greatly admired. I am long ing for an elephant to die nfw, for I have a chair that will be fine when it is up holstered with the mouse colored hide. It is a great advantage to have such unique decorations that 04 one could imitate them.'—New York Cor. Gliicago Herald. Night Sessions in Congress. "Night sessions for debate only" are the greatest curiosities of a congressional session. No vote can bo taken at them and no call for a quorum made, and as a consequence very few members attend ex cept those who are to speak. The gal leries are always empty except for the regular crowd of hearers who huddle in the men's seats near the clock, and even the pages and doorkeepers talk politics in the lobby to keep themselves awake until the lights go out. There have been in stances where the member who was speaking had no audience at all, and on one occasion after a debater had got through and left the hall the sleepy chair man had to send a page afer him to bring Him back and adjourn the committee. There had been no one else in the house while he was speaking, and when he left he took the committee with him. The chairman could not get it adjourn be cause there was no one to make the mo tion, and rather than stay up all night he brought the member back. It is needless to say that there was no objection to the adjournment, and that the motion was carried uuanimously.—New York Press "Every Day Talk."

"My father took a claim on the North Side near the river and not far from Mr. Civ bourne's." said Mrs. Mary Ann Draper. "Here we lived for quite a long time. I have gone through many dangers and hardships on the North Siae in early days The* Indians were numerous, and were always coming and goine Sometimes they were friendly ana sometimes they were not. My fatner always bad his gun and sword by the bed at night and a dog in the house. Often he would not remove his clothing The Indians would come up and go around the house, [and now ana then strike their tomahawks into the logs and cry 'Chan in cban muck-a-mu—no good white man.' I don't see why they didn't kill us They did kill one man and woman just before they'treated.' They hung the man up in the woods and threw the woman in the lake "I think there were only thirteen dwell ing houses, all told, when 1 came to Chi cago My father helped to build the fa mous 'Green Tree Tavern.' These bouses could not all be seen at one view The grass was south, and all the North Side nearly was covered with very heavy woods Wild rice grew in the river, ana beautiful white and yellow pond lilies were to be seen along the shores I had sev eral adventures and some narrow escapes. "But I want to tell you how, 1 some times believe, I saved Chicago from a massacre This adventure I call my 'bridge disaster 1 was about 13 years old then, and we lived on the North Side, near the junction of the north and south branches of the river Mother wanted me to go to market. So I toqk the basket on my arm and started for the only bakery then in Chicago, which was on the West Side, and also for the only meat market in town, which was on the South Side* where Mr Clybourne bad his shop. Near the two rivers was a pole bridge which 1 had to cross I went over all right and secured my bread and meat, but on my return I found the bridge blockaded with Indian ponies, and I should say there were about 2,000 savages in that vicinity The ponies were stationed on the bridge in such a manner that it was supposed no one could get through But I passed over with my basket by going along on the ends of the poles outside of a rough rail-, ing At the farther end stood a big In dian with along knife in his hand. I shied around him, too, and had gotten fairly over only when the bridge broke down and tumbled poles and ponies pell mell together In the river. A thousand war whoops seemed to rend the air, and the big Indian whooped the loudest of all, and, lifting his great knife, started after me "Runt I should think I did. 1 ran through a house near by quicker than I can tell It. and the Indian after me.* I dodged Into a thicket of wild apple trees, and got Into the woods and made my es cape. But I did not feel safe until my long hair was shorn off and my disguise so complete that the Indians would not recog nize me. This racket called out the gar rison at the fort. The drums beat, and even my brother ran around, crying out: 'The war's commenced, the war's commenced, get your guns ready quick.' Alexander Robinson, the chief of the tribe, used to tell me that the Indians thought I had bewitched the bridge and brought on the calamity, and therefore tried to kill me Later in the day, however, they changed their minds ana said I was a 'fairy' sent by the Great Spirit to punish them because they would not 'treat' with the white men The treaty was agreed upon that very afternoon, and peace, in stead of a massacre, prevailed. Thus, I expect 1 helped to save Chicago."—Chi cago Herald. Effects of Absinthe Tippling. The young men are cultivating ab sinthe, and when the present generation reaches middle age the absinthe tippler will be one of the frequent guests at our hospitals, which are now full of drunk ards and narcotic takers I am now treat ing a man who has reached the last stage. The effects are fearful. It is a- drink that serves as a powerful stimulant at first, but is the most injurious in the end be cause of its strength. It is easy to drink absinthe to excess because it requires such a small quantity to do the work. The intoxication it causes is exhilarat ing and pleasant, but after it is drank to excess the digestive organs are destroyed and the appetite ruined. With the effects worn off comes a terrible •hirst, with giddiness and a tingling in the ears, mental depression and finally hallucina tion and loss of brain power.

Camps of Fuegians were visited and con siderable ethnological material was ob tained from them for the National museum at Washington. In Eyre sound icebergs are usually to be found floating, as many glaciers flow into the water there. The Albatross ran into this sound and made fast to a berg for the purpose of getting a supply of ice for her refrigerator. Huge blocks werw then cut off and hoisted in until six tons had thus been taken aboard. The ice was clear and compact and lasted until the arrival of the ship here.—Panama Star and Herald. Worship of the Snake Cod. Some Pueblo towns used to keep each an enormous snake in a closed room,and feed it with children. The Pueblo of La Cia, twenty-five miles west of Bernalillo, was nearly depopulated thus. It had a snake of enormous size, kept In a room whose doors and windows were walled up. In the roof was a small hole, sealed with a heavy flat rock. The first day of every month the people drew lots to see whose child should be sacrificed to the snake god. The chosen babe was carefully bathed and anointed, and then tossed, naked, down the hole to the hungry serpent. It Is only six years since this hideous rite was stopped by a priest, who finally prevailed upon the Pueblos to tear down the wall and kill the snake.—New Mexico Cor. Globe-Democrat. The largest tree in the country east of California is a gnarled old sycamore that stands in Upper Sandusky, in Ohio. It is forty feet in circumference. Modern Civilisation in France. The personal effects of Marie Regnault, the murdered mistress of Pranzim, have been sold at public auction at the Hotal Drouot. There was a terrible crowd, in cluding many ladies of fashion and aristo cratic rank. All the effects of the dead woman were sold, including her clothing, and almost fabulous prices were paid. For example, a pair of blue silk corsets brought $37. A trashy novel which she was reading just before she was killed brought $25 the publisher's price of it Is 75 cents. The blue silk stockings which she had on when she was killed were pur chased by a Russian countess for $43. A basin in which Pranzini was said to have washed the blood from his hands after the murder brought $15. A chiffonier, on which are-to be seen the marks of his bloody fin gers, brought $85. A heavv coat of waterproof transparent varnish has been put over the finger marks to prevent them from being obliterated. A pair of common silk garters brought $5 each. One lady, a rich banker's wife, paid $32 for a pink silk undervest, considerably worn, and at once stripped off the half dozen buttons and sold them for $3 apiece. A tooth brush brought $4 and a shoe but toner $3, though neither cost over 50 cents new A wife of a deputy wears a brooch containing a tiny gallows noose made of Pranzini's hair, and another lady, a duchess, has set in a ring one of the handsome teeth for which the murderer was famous. She bribed the executioner to knock it out of his jaw for her, as soon as he was dead. As is well known, the corpse of Pranzini was completely skinned, and the tanned hide made up into pocket books, card cases, and other souvenirs, which'are highly prized.—The Argonaut. Oscar and His magazine. I met Mr. O. Wilde not long since in London. He stood on the corner of Bond street and Piccadilly delivering a series of deep, guttural and heart felt reflections on the mud, and particularly at a large and lavish display of it that had been spread over his attire by the wheel of a passing hansom. A woful change has come over the erst while apostle of sestheticism. Where a waist once existed there is now a billowy, bulging and complacent protuberance that wots not of sunflowers and lilies, nor yearns for sickly yellows and pallid greens. It indicates instead a rampant, clamorous and passion tossed yearning for beer that has been met by a generous hand. Mr. Wilde's outline would do credit to an al derman. His reddish hair was clipped close and topped by a beaver hat in a cocky sort of way, and his trousers were rolled up in .a fashion that allowed the ob server's eye free play over a pair of sturdy walking boots. As a matter of detail it may be addqd that the trousers (the pet -aversion of the former aesthete's life) were ill fitting and bagged at the knee. Mr. Wilde's increasing corpulence has de stroyed the strong lines of his face, but added an element of rubicund good na ture. He was ruddy and comfortable looking. "I suppose," he said, before we separ ated, "that you remember some of the re marks I used to make about journalism?" "I have a vivid recollection of a speech you made one night at the Lotus club in New York, in which you denounced 'the ink stained creatures of the press.'" "Ah, yes. Well. I'm one of them now. My magazine is my only aim." He is making a success of it, too. It is one of the few instances where a man of violent enthusiasms becomes a money maker.—Blakely Hall in New York Sun. Professional Artists a Terror. Art stores and the dealers in artists' supplies are not supported to any degree by professional talent, as in fact no dealer cares to cater to that class of trade. Pro fessional artists are a terror to business men, for they seem to have no ideas of ways and means of transacting business, and think it all the same whether they pay in a day or a year. Then the success ful men want you to toady to them and submit to insolent reflections on the con tracted ideas of all engaged in trade. They will force th6ir pictures on the pub lic whether the execution is good, bad or indifferent, and when the dealer remon strates they turn a scornful nose and caustically comment on the terrible lack of art culture among the uneducated. There are men in the art supply busi ness who have informed me that their most sincere wish was that a real profes sional would never cross the threshold of their stores. The artists who have had sense enough to forego the ambition to become famous and turned their pencils and brushes into commercial work have found a reward commensurate with the cost of early training. There area dozen commercial artists in St. Louis who today claim incomes ranging from $3,000 to $6,000, that lift them from the penury and uncertainty of a Bohemian whose life is devoted to catching the public fancy. The public iS too whimsical, and although you may captivate it for awhile, fashion will lead the crowds away from yester day's favorite.—Charles E. Ault in Globe Democrat. A Disappointed Yonng Man. One of the girls in fashionable society in New York made up her mind to get married the other day, and after confiding her intention to her father, she said: "What do you intend to do for me?" The father was a wealthy man, and thought he was showing a liberal spirit when he answered: "Well, I will give you $100, .000 to buy a houw and $25,000 to furnish It with." "And what will you give me to live on?" the young lady demanded, with & dissatisfied look on her face. "Oh, I will allow'you the interest on another $100,000," replied her father. "But my chef will cost at least $1,200 a year. How do you think I can possibly manage with so little?" The father looked slightly grieved, but only said: "That must do while I am living you will probably have more when I am gone." The young man who was interested in hearing the result of this conversation between father and daughter said when he heard it: "He might at least have given her two mill ions." The marriage «0d not take place.— New York Press "Every Day Talk." Sash Weights (Tom Tin Cans. There Is no secret about the process.
