This branch of the Allegheny has been lung noted as the home and rendez vous of thousands of black and rattlesnakes of the dusky brown species, which have been looked upon with dread by the hunters from the fact that they have always been ex ceedingly aggressive and dangerous. For years this mountain has been the terror and dread or the people of the vicinity, and it is seldom that any traveler or hunter has bad the temerity heretofore to cross the ridge at or near a certain point, so numerous and deadly have been the poisonous reptiles. out that has all been changed, owing to the fnct that old Uncle Abe Lockhart has imported from North 'Carolina a bunch of the long nosed, lank, long legged species of bogs, which from their elongated personnel hare been identified under the title of slug diggers. Uncle Abe had been so pestered and annoyed by the army of snakes whicb in fested his farm that he put his wits to work and finally hit upon the happy plan of im porting his lank and bony swine, which have had the reputation of being inveterate ene mies of the snake family. He hauled over the mountains twenty-two big, bonv hogs of the species abovo described, and placed them in pens, where he kept them well fed and treated. THE CORN TRAIL. When the old man had concluded that his muscular pets had become sufficiently accli mated and at home be released them from their pns, and early in the morning, while tt was j et cool and the snakes were still half benumbed or asleep, he went up the mountain to a spot where he knew the reptiles dwelt hy the thousand. All along the pathwav he dropped grains of com until he reached th side of the snake pit, a sunken spot in the side of the mountain, containing about half an acre, here he threw down a bushel of loose corn, and, together with the boys, Jim and George, took shelter in low trees. W ithin a few minutes the satisfied grunts of the porkers were beard as they followed the trait of corn, until the whole drove of hogs broke into view from the under brush. They carce on until they arrived at the pit, where they stood for a min ute or two until the old boar, an im mense fellow, came up, when he took the lead and went granting down the bank into the pit All the other members of the family followed, until the twenty-two hogs were ail within the small amphitheatre of a half acre.

I do not think that the present generation of young royal ladies can present as exquisite types of loveliness as did that now passing away. Twenty -five years ago the empress of Austria, for Instance, was simply dazzling. she would have been noted for her beauty had she been a barmaid or a ballet girL The slender, graceful figure, the finely molded features, the large, brilliant dark eyes, the beautifully formed head crowned with a wealth of black silken tresses, all went to make up an ensemble of physical perfection. I saw her once at that period, when 1 was staying at the Archduke Charles hotel at Vienna. The radiant Elizabeth came there with her imperial husband to call upon the Countess of Flanders, the sister-in-law of the king of the Belgians. She passed in front of a large window opening upon the balcony. and on that balcony was stationed a party f Americans, one of which was myself, all eager to catch a glimpse of the famous royal beauty. With true queenly courtesy she tused for a moment on beholding the group, and stood there for a brief but ap preciable space of time, as if to say: "You wanted to see me here 1 am r l hen, with a stately inclination of her beautiful head, she turned away and rejoined her husband, leaving everyone of the spectators in rapt ures with her loveliness, bhe was attired in a costume of transparent muslin and Valen ciennes lace, with a broad sash in violet silk thickly embroidered with steel spangles. From beneath her compact little turban hat there fell at the back of her head a mass of black, glossy braided tresses, coiled round and round and confined in a net of purple silk. A simple dress enough for an empress to wear while paying a call on a princess, but its very simplicity only served to enhance the splendor of its wearer's beauty. Of late years the empress will never consent to sit for her photograph, and dislikes extremely to be gazed at in public, sure tokens of the waning of her once resplendent charms. She was the one beauty of her family, none of her three sisters, the queen of Naples, the princess of Tburn and Taxis and the duchess d Alencon, being in any way remarkable for their good looks. In deed, the last named princess was positively plain. A good deal of regret has been felt in Austrian society that the emperor had not selected Princess Helen, now Princess of Thurn and Taxis, as she is a very brilliant conversationalist and is fond of music and society; wh-reais the empress dislikes even to show herseif at the opera and really cares for nothing except riding and hunting. She is growing rather old to indulge in this last amusement, being over ol. But she pre serves many of her charms, and especially tne shapeliness of her figure and the luxuri ance of her long, thick tresses. At the court concert given at Vienna in honor of the em pernr of Germany, she created a profound sensation by her coiffure. She wore her hair falmig unconfirmed at the back, in long masses over her shoulders and studded with stars of diamonds held in place by slender,. concealed wires. This "Berenice coiffure, as it was called, wdl greatly admired, no less than its stately wearer. The empress is said to be the queeuhest royal lady in Europe to be hold. It is a sight to see her at a court pre sentation, passing down the line of ladies THE ai'FFERElVS FR1EXD.

W.EAKER&CO,Dcrckc.tcr,M from the overpowering smell of the musky odor that they were forced to lie down under the trees, but they were perfectly safe so long as the hogs were about. After vanquishing tbe army of snakes tbe porkers lay down among tbe dead bodies of the enemies until they had sufficiently rested, when they again aroused them selves, and, led by the old boar, tbey began to root up and turn over the rocks, every now and then exposing a rattler which had hidden his body away from his porcine enemies. When a snake was thus exposed there was a rush, and in a jiffy that rattler was torn into little bits too small to recognise. In an hour and a half not a living snake could be found, and the bot-s were, to all ap pearances, as sound and hearty as ever. Uncle Abe then picked up his corn sack and made a trail of corn back to tbe house, but tbe hogs did not follow, seeming to prefer the flesh of tbe snakes to tbe com. Ever since then the drove of hogs have remained in the mountain, coming home only to get a change j of food, and where once no man dared to tread there is now not a rattlesnake to be found. The pigs had cleaned them out. Uncle Abe save there were not less than five hundred rattlesnakes killed in that single fight, and not one bog was hurt. Ciuciaiiau h,nqutrcr. Wouldn't Be Outdone. Another story which Gen, Sheridan was fond of telling at tbe dinner table, after tbe I coffee had been served and the ladies had re tired, went somewhat like this, I am told: There was a xealous chaplain of tbe Army of the Potomac, who bad called on a colonel, noted for his profanity, to talk of tbe reug ! ions intereste of bis men. After baring been politely motioned to a seat on the chest, the chaplain began: 'Colonel, you have one of the finest regi ments in tbe army. "1 believe so," said tne colonel in reply. "Do you think," pursued the chaplain. l "that you pay sufficient attention to tbe re ligions instruction of your menr '-Well, I don't know," doubtfully replied tbe colonel. 'A lively interest has been awakened is the Massachusetts," tbe parson went on to say. "The Lord has blessed the labors of his servants, and ten have already been bap tized." 'is that sor excitedly cried the colonel. and then turning to tbe attendant, added "Sergeant major, nave fifteen men detailed immediately for baptism; I'll be blanked if I'li be outdone by any Massachusetts regi ment." Piew ork inbune. chamber is found to greatly increase tbe use ful effect of blasting and also tbe proportion of round coal. It is used in six seams in the colliery, and has also been adopted at Lens, France. The coals are not brought to the surface of the shafts, but only to the level of 400 feet, whence an endless chain road, two miles long, extends to Bar Bonnet. The baint Andre du Foiner mine claims to be the deepest coal mine in the world. It has a royalty of 804 acres, and a yearly pro duction of 300,000 to 250,000 tons. There are two coal drawing shafts, the one 2,952 feet deep, the other 3,063 feet deep. The first shaft is being deepened to 3,149 feet. Each of the pits is ventilated by a Ouibal fan work ing in a second shaft A remarkable feature in the working at these mines is tne compara tively low temperature experienced. Tbe maximum temperature is 75 degs. Fahr., and it is very often considerably lower; tbe air passing along tne "face" is not warm. This tends to show that elevation of temperature is by no means the greatest obstacle in work ing very docp mines.

Tblkoraph, Dubuoue. Iowa. IntoUigetK of Whale. Whales are very human and very knowing. t o. 1 have seen those gigantic whale moth ers sporting with their calves and rolling in clumsy play with them within pistol shot of the schooner. A whale has some senses finer than ours. They seem to have some sort of electric communication between them. though for apart. At times, if one whale, though half a mile from his companions, is struck, the rest seem instantly to know it, and dash madly off. A whale in swimming leaves a slight ooxe or streak of oil behind on the water's surface. The whalers call it the "slick. Now, this "slick does afford some sort of communication to the whale when it is touched by any foreign substance, and tbe whalemen in their boats will avoid crossing it wben they see it, for it seems as if it con veyed warning to a whale they are desirous of approaching. The "calf" sometimes lagged a few yards behind the "cow" while our boatjuwere in chase, and if by accident our boat header put his iron into that calf the mother instantly knew it, and then, and not till then, would she turn furiously on tbe boat. Wben she was roused man was no match at all for for her. For wounding her calf a "cow" chased one of our boats ashore, and for an hour she lay "on and off,n blockading their port of safety and waiting for them to put off, that she Slight have another whack at tbem. They did not put off until aha had gone.
