How the Greaser’s Life Was Thought To Be Saved Ey Heroic Tr a;mant - It Trans pin d Tliero was No Snaka With in Striking Distanceot the Patient. Th? beauty of the best snake story in ;h • world .s that there was really uo snake in it. which rs more than can be said even of the Garden of Eden. It h id been very hot that summer on the ranch. Men work in the fields :n California with the thermometer at 110 degrees, while they fell down of heat apupl xv in the streets or New lork and Chicago at 00 degrees. That is the max ;:i they preaca to the stranger in the West, ana it has truth in it. nut it is a mistake to suppose that even in California nun work in the fields in comfort .n such a temperature, and that nimiiu ; a. tti• motnpter has gone \ciy near 115 degrees. we are grateful enough to go away in the hills for a spell, a.tit a wagon and a tent, and the usual outfit of pats and pans, .hiee of u- a . a mtn, with Louie, tin Mexican, whom we called in the vernacular the grea.-er, to mind the horses and make him'.'- if generally useful. Our pto g auiuii w s to tisn ht rivers, shoot deer and pur-s.bii a grizzly bear, discover a gol i mine and - the ranch with u prospective for uno. \\ had just p. chf 1 ottr tent. Down on p.aiu for week's before we had Lh-.ii sleeping out on our verandas, but tin a.r ot -he hills had a nip in it bj ;. e In the afternoon, bu iacre was still plenty of sunshine. 1 followed Louie round a shoulder of tin. h.U. going o fetch water a; a little S ream tumbling from somewhere among the suowy peaks that tapped the zone of firs on the great mountain above v.s. These mountains had, at some time ur other, sent down a little avalanche of small rocks that lay heaped on our left as w w. iked. The sceue was toe uio.v peaceful imaginable. , the dkeaded Kattler. In an in.~:air. a succession of small in cidents sent the peace to limbo. Louie dropp- 1 his pannikin with a tinkling clatter, crying "Sancta Maria in a voice of terror. \t the same moment 1 heard the di ..-1 rank of a snake, and saw its length gleam under Lou.e's leet and van -h among the rociv. h xclaimed, and tot t. r d ! ack into my arms, his dark face livid with fear. -What is it. Louie? Did the snake strike you?” “In the root, ne saia. yes. '•]. • uv go back to camp. Quick; loan cn me-” . . , , "What’s the good, boss?’ he asked. “I'm a dead man." Nevertheless, he c.mie with me. leaning on my shoulder and m kings law walk of it. Down in the plain we had no rattle snakes. For miles about the ranch there was no reeks for them, and though there were plenty of ground squill el holes, we never saw snakes about them. 1 mg h things did not en ter our heads, anu Louie, weary of his boots, had kicked them off. with the long spurs, and com 1 with me in h.s stocking feet on this quest for water. A word explained to the boys what had happened. _ , "Strychnine’s the best, said .lack pe ers, who was our authority on the question of snake bites, which he had studied in Australia, “but we ha\en t go it. so we must do what we can with this. Hu it’s a poor chance,” he added, in a whisper, as. to save time, he knock cd V neck oS’ a battle of brandy. “Drink i.. Iamie." he said. "Never mind cutting your lip. Get it down; that's the chief thing.* The Mexican's teeth, chattered as we forced In he neck of the bottle, but he drank a gr at gulp without winking. The liquor, or pickle either, to scorch | the throat of a Mexican has yet to b* found. Jim Kelly. ih° Irishman, was saldling the freshe-t of our horses to ride at best spe 1 ; i Lindsay, eleven miles away in • ha/ of the plains, for the doctor. In i minute he was pounding away am hi. the hills. "Fix up a Ugh; as blcii as you can put it, if its dark be foi. we’get back,” he shouted as he went. DOSED WITH BRANDY. \Y pulled the sock off the Mexican’s f ■. Already it was swelling fast, with a purplish tinge round a tiny blue iue s from which the smallest im aginable drop of blood had welled. " vny good cuuerizlng it?” I suggest i e i. Not a mag. said jock snortij. iio on with the brandy and keep him mov ing. That’s his only chance.” The Mexican's face was dreadful to see. lie called, in his terror, on every sain; in the church, but he declared he suffered no pain. Jock, improving the occasion, began relating in a low voice to me anecdotes of all the snike bites 1. : d known. “One boy I've seen did r-<■. w r." h. sail, “and that was from the bite of a brown snake, and a brown sn. ke's as bad, they say, as a rattler— an Mi- raliau brown snake, that is; a rattler can’t be worse. But this boy was stupid all his life after; not as quick-witted as the average, which is not much to say. An r at times, just at I ihe t.me of y ar at which he'd been bit ten, the wound got red again and swel ‘ led and ho was stupider than ever. ! Louie had on a sock; the rattier'd have I had i > go through that; he might have s;t» tn a bit of his poison there: that gives l.ouie a sort of a chance. Does it hurt you now. Louie?” "No, boss, no; not hurt.” The swelling was spread.ng; going up the ankle and right up the leg. and the n: n .> gan to talk slowly and painfully. "1 r- m< in'oer." said Jock, "going along a r ige of a terrace on a steep river ban k. The river was full of sharks, and 1 met a brown snake coming along the r ige toward mo. There wasn't room to Mira, and I couldn’t take to the river fir the sharks, and r hadn't a gun. But m> pal. coming behind, had a gun. and ho poked the barrel in between my legs aud blew the brute to bits.” "Is that true, Jock?" I asked. "My heaven, d’you think I'd lie at such a time as this?” with a glance at Louie's face. BATTLING FOR LIFK. "Are you getting sleepy, man?” he said. Then, as Louie d.d not answer, he took him under the arm ami signal ing me to do the same on the other side, we kept him moving between us up and down and round the teat. From time to time we made him drink more bran dy. He had taken half a bottle, but it s-» med to have no effect on him. "It stimulates the heart's action, you know.” Jock explained, "just as the pa.son goes to stop it. but strychnine's the best; acts as nerve tonic. It's a deal to do with the nerves, this snake-bite business.’* We heard the little ground owls begin wrustling to each other at the mouths of the squirrel holes away down in the plain, and the bats and moths began to come out as the sun sank out of sight. They brushed our faces as we continue 1 to march the Mexican to and fro. Pres ently 1 left the work to Jock, and rigged ttp a pine torch for a signal Jght on ihe pole which I took from the wagon. The job took some time, but at length I go*, the light fairly flaring. -Look at his face," Jock whispered to me as I came back to him. It was a shocking sight under the flickering rays, swollen, distorted, livid. The man's arm was swollen, loo, as I feit when I took my place to support him. His movements were lethargic and heavy, so that I wondered that Jock, unaided, could have kept him moving so long. , „ T i is ••Give im more branny, Jock u* rected. "more; that's it. He's-had near ly al! the bottle. There's a chance he went on presently; "1 really believe there is. 1 though', h d have been dead before now. Maybe 'he don’t mean dy ing after all. A white man’d have been dead half an hour ago.” "I wish the doctor'd come. -Mighty little good wishing." THE DOCTOR'S ADVENT. The weary tramp went on. Twice 1 had to replenish the beacon torch and once more we gave the Mexican a gulp 0? -he brandv. which finished the bot tle. As I was fixing the torch for the t'hird time I heard a shou; down the can yon. I answered with all my might, and in a few minutes Jim Kelly and the doctor rode into the circle of the flaring I light. I "Alive?” the doctor said. “Alive, yes.” said Jock; “alive and ! that’s about all. He can't speak." "What have you given him—brandy? ' That’s right. How much?” I "A bottleful.” “Right, and you’ve kept him awake. That's it. H won’t die now. Wonder ful fellows, these greasers. He’d have i died before this if he meant dying. Let s 1 see the wound.” I lit’ IM-UUie uuuuu ' 1 “ *~** '^ - — •■■ | still air as in a room. The Mexican’s foo: was swollen so that it scarcely j looked like a human member, but in 'he midst of the purple swelling was a white circle with a little blue mark, plainly evident for its center. The Mexican seemed to feel no pain, even when the doctor handled t'he wound and pressed it upward with his fingers. "Hold the candle close," he said. ‘It’s blamed strange.’’ he added, “blamed strange,” pecking at the little blue mark with liis forceps. “The fang's in the wound yet. 1 never heard of that happening before. Shake him a bit; don’t let him go drowsy.” His swollen limbs wabbled like jelly under the treatment. It was horrible. The doctor gave a little dig, then a little tirg with his foiceps. Presently he held up to the candle, in the clutch of the forceps, a long white spine, and regarded it curiously. Then he said in a hollow voice: “Do you know what it is? It Is not a fang at all; it’s a cactus spike.” “What!” IT WAS ONLY A THORN. A strangely peopled Pile group of men gazed into each other's faces with ques tioning eyes, under the stars that twin kled out over the snow-topped edges of the Sierras. “Only a thorn!” “Look at it.” the doctor said. “You can spp the thing for yourselves.” One after the o’fter we examined the spine.feeling its point with a fingerthat we certainly should not have ventured, near it had i: been a poison fang. “And there’s nothing else in the wound?” Jock asked. “Not a thing else.” “And you mean to tell me that I’ve wasted two hours of my time to say nothing of a bottle of our host brandy, in walking about a greaser that has nothing the matter hut a thorn in his foot? Well. I am darned.” “That’s about what you’ve been do ing,” the doctor said quietly. “Well. I’m darned ” Jock turned with a look of righteous wrath to the wretched Mexican, who was lying in a comatose heap in my arms, but the first sight of his face checked the words un spoken. “Shake him tip; keep him waking,” the doctor cried. “But you don’t mean to tell me.” Jock began ag in wiien he had succeeded in arousing some sign of life in Louie, “that aH that." pointing at rnis distended feat ures. “is the cactus thorn?” “There’s not a mile else in the wound.” “Well. I’m darned.” “All the same.” the doc’or added qui etly. “he'd h.we died if you hadn’t kept him going.” “Died! What of?” \snaKP one; snaae nim up mere; cun i let him go drowsy.” “Snake bite! H avens and earth, T thought you said there was nothing in h’s foot beyond the thorn?” INFLUENCE OF MIND OVER BODY. Then the doctor went up to Jock and laid a hand on each of his shoulders, and said, vtry slowly and distinctly: “You mark me. Jock Peters, we’re in face of a bigger thing to-night than snake bi:e. We’re in face of one of the biggest and ultimatest facts of human nature, and ! one of the biggest mysteries—the influ ence of the mind upon the body. I've heard of something like this case be fore, although I've never seen it, nor never thought I should; and that in connection with a coolie and cobra in. India. In that case, too. there was no snake b'te. although there was a snake. The coolie saw the snake; it darted from beneath his feet, and at the moment (likely from the start he gave) a thorn pierced his foot, just a- it happened to the greaser. And that man. too. the same as this man here, swelled tip. showed all the symptoms of snake pio soning. and died. This man we’ll save. You. Jock, have practically saved him by keeping him moving and counteract ing the poison by the brandy. Look at the man ;isn’t he snake poisoned?” “By all that's blue he looks it,” Jock admitted. “And all the hurt he's got. the physi cal hurt, is jus: the pin prick of that loom. The rest’s all mental—all the swelling, the surcharging of the vessels, mental. Now, tell me. how do you think that man would be. hut for his morbid mental state, with all that brandy that you’ve given him ?” “Dead. I suppose.” “You’re right, dead; as dead as you or I would be if we set to drink the same just now. But he. he's hardly drunk; he’s sober. And he’s better now. heart acting better.” He bent and listened to its beating as he spoke. “You've seen a strange thing to-night, gentlemen, ’ he added, and addressed us collectively; “such a thing as neither you or I are likely ever to see again. And I'll tell you another thing about it. gentlemen: it’s a thing that you won’t find you get a great deal of credence for when you come to tell it to the boys. There's a fashion in this world for men to believe they know the way things happen, and the thing that happens in a way they don't know tney put aside as a thing that didn’t happen, an of this,” the doctor added simply, "* should only speak, as among gentlemen, with a hand on the pistol pocket at the hip. A COMPLETE CURE. After a while the awful distortion^ of I^ouie’s face began to go down. ,'\ou can almost see it settling Lke a ba.ter pudding.” as Jim Kelly said, and the fearful purple tinge died out of it. His heart was beating naturally again, and the doctor said we might let him go to sleep. In the morning he was difficult to rouse, as he might be after so heavy a night, but the doctor said he would do right enough if we gave him rest for a day or two. And so he did, though his nerve was so shaken that we had to send him back to the plain again, where there was no rattlesnakes. It appeared later that Louie had cherished a morbid dread of snakes for a long while, ever since he had had a hand in the killing of one six feet long down in the republic of Mexico, though after a couple of years on the ranch he had almost forgotten there were such things. A man that is nervous about snakes should never go barefoot in the hills. “It only shows what I told you,” Jock Petere commented. “Strychnine is the thing for snake bite, because it is such a nerve tonic. If a man could make be lieve he had not been bitten he need never die of snake bite. If ever I'm bitten I shall make believe it was a cac tus spine.” This is a true story, although it’s such a good one. If any one doubts it he can see the thorn.—From MacMillan's Ma gazine.

Twelve Cars of Gold Bugs Left for the Oil Town Yesterday, On the Last Free Excursion of the Season—About Six Hundred and Fifty in the Party—'I he Clubs Generally Did Not Turn Out Very Strong—The Democratic Meet ings for Monday Night—Other Political News. Yesterday afternoon at three o’clock the local gold-bugs took the last free excursion of the season. A special train of eleven passenger coaches and a baggage car left the Eleventh street station at three o'clock for Sistersville, carrying about six hun dred and tlfty uniformed men and miscel laneous voters. Seven orpanizations made the trip from this city, and they were accompanied by the Danford Guards, of Martin's Ferry. The local organizations did not turn out very strong, with the exception of the Re publican Escort Club, which paraded a very fair representation of the local mem bership. The Six Footers had hnt thirty men in line, and the Tariff Champions about twenty-live. The other clubs rang ed from twenty-five to forty, except the Escort Club, which had about seventy five in line. The organizations making the trip were the Danford Guards of Martin's Ferry, the Six Footers, the First Ward Club, the Tariff Champions, the Mark Manna Club, the Povener Club and the Atkinson Club. The Elkins Cadets went to Pittsburg, and were, therefore, not represented. The usual large crowd assembled along Water street to see the boys off. and there were numerous yells for McKinley as the train pulled out of the station. MONDAY NIGHT’S MEETINGS. Members of the various Democratic and free silver organizations throughout this city should remember that they are all railed to meet at their respective head quarters Monday evening, and that ad dresses will be made at each hall by a large number of local speakers. These ad dresses will partake of the nature of last instructions before the opening of the polls Tuesday morning, and every voter should be present to hear what is said and to benefit by the remarks made. Among the speakers will he Hon. John A. How ard. Col. W. W. Arnett. Hon. John o. Pendleton, Hon. John B. Wilson. Hon. T. S. Riley. M. F. Dryden, W. I*. Robin son. J. B. Handlan, M. D.

The older Republican leaders are very much disgruntled over the remark which I A. B. White, editor of the Journal, made recently about the ticket in Wood county.

October 31.—Flag day was inaugurated successfully here to day. and the city has seldom been as profusely decorated with Old Glory* Republicans and Democrats alike gave evidence of their loyalty and hundreds of thousands of flags are floating from residences and business houses. The Republicans took advantage of the day by having a monster parade, participated in by marchers variously estimated at from 20,000 to 30,000 men. The procession looked to be about five miles long and took several hours in passing a given point. The line was made up of marching clubs and repre sentatives of the many industrial es tablishments and unorganized bodies of citizens. Many handsome and hu morous floats were the features. -o Ladies' AVinter Underwear Si5c, worth 50<-. New IMatd Ribbon!*, handsome, 3 lie, worth liOr.

No attempt was made to deliver ad dresses after that, and after a short stay the train pulled out for Council *131 tiffs.
