Bobbery on the largest scale ever known was carried on onee in India un der the system known as Thuggee. Tim was the mot-t extraordinary system of crime the world hns ever seen." It op erations extended over thousands of miles of country. Its victims would l ave- populated many a small kingdom. It carried on crime nnder religious sanc tions and with religious ceremonies, made theft'holy and murder cacred. It killed in a cold-bl oded, rnthle-w, whole sale way. It he'd human life as of no' account. It had no re-ipect for weak ness, age or innocence. When a com fany of travelers gainst whom its op erntions were chiefly directed had come within its cod, it" allowed none to es tape. It" slew all the father and mother, the grandsire and the babe in arms ; man, woman and child. It used no baleful drugs, no dea Uy weapon. It dealt out destruction by the simp'est of all means a handkerchief. Thouuh the confederation numbered thousands of members, it carried on its work of ro -bery and slaughter undetected, if not unsuspected, for years, even under British rule. Gang-robbery with violence was alo very prevalent in India when it was first conquered, and also for some time after. This is known in India as Dacoitee, and in many parts of the country all robbers and thieves were once called Dacoitei Dacoitee is of two kinds. The first is the attack on a shop, warehouse or pri vate dwelling. This is not the sam as burglary; for whereas the burglar enters secretly, and only resorts to force in the last extremity, the Dacoitee is an open attack by an armed body of men. The place is carried by open assault. If closed door bars the way it is simply buret open. The robbers are well armed, carrying swords and iron-shod clubs. and Burnt times even matchlocks; and re sistance tends to wounds and deaths. This flagrant and open breach of the law has been suppressed in great meas ure, though not altogether. The attack is generally made on the house of a rich banker or the shop of a jeweler in t-ome small town where the police force is not very strong, or on the house of a rich zemindar (landowner) of a village. One case ot the latter kind, which occurred iu a village at the time when I was eno.imped not far from it, was managed thus. The zemindar wa- reported to have a large sum cf mouey buned in the houne a common way of keeping it in India, the house I eing built in the usual Etstern fashion namely, round a ceutml court-yard. The lower story was simply an open cor ridor or ctoibter, and whs ust-d foi d- mebtic offices and the stabling of ots anil horses, and had no windows oil he outside. To iU lull heig t there wa nothing but a smooth surface of wal . The upper story, the dweiling-pla-e proper, had windows on the outside bu t.iese, as usual, were very small, and higli up. When the massive gates wt r closed ot an evening the house was, in tct, a fortification, with the houaehol for a g tmson, and entry was almost iin possible. The old zamindar and his two sons were seated in the gateway enjoying th cool evening air. Their two or tine men-servants were busied about th house, inside and outside. It was just getting dusK when there was heard on the road which passed through the vil lage the usual cry of pilgrims proceed ing to some ta ired shrine : "Horn bom Mahadeo '' (Great, great is Maha defl. find " 'JiHr j ki jye" f Vietorv to Mother GnngC-). And now the first pilgrim of the com puny came in sight. There was nothing suspicious in liij ap pearance. He looked a simple pilgrim, and whs barefooted : in one hand he car- ri. d his shoes ; w tti the other he steadied the long bamboo pole which re -ted on one shoulder, and fr-tm each end of which hung the -wicker-work- bankets which hold the bottles, or rather flasks, in which water is curled from the sacred rivers to some far-distant i-hrine. He stopped in front of the old zemindar. " How fnr is it, father, to the next koou well by tb.H roadi4o? for there we mean to rest for the niht." ' Two miles, my son, replied the old man. "The water in the well is good ?" "It is." " And the grove near it is a good one to sleep in?" " Yes." "Perhaps there if a buniia'a fsrain dealer's) shop near it where we could get some Hour f . " JNo: there is not. ' Then how far is the next well and resting-place ? " Two miles more." "And is the wuttu in that well good ? "Thou asketh many questions," said the old man. But the purpose of the questioning iiaa been gamed; tlie seemingf pilgrim had been tuoviug in single file; it had given them time to come up and form a group. Some of them had put down their poles and baskets, as if to rest themselves But now the baskets wire slipped off, the staves taken in hand and a rush made on the old man aud his sons and servants, who were soon overpowered, and the robbers in possession of the house, while some kept guard outside. They carried no arms, so as to avoid suspicion af.'er the robbery as well as before it. But a hf avy ' male " bojnboo club is a formidable weapon. Tortun was soon applied to the old man to nvaki mm reveal wliere his treasure was buried. Two little grandchildren, a boy and girl, were seized, and the heavy clubs held over their heads with a threat of dashing their brains out if the old man did not confess s;)eedi!y. He did s. The rupees were duo; rip and distributed among the band, whereupon the robbem moved en and kept together until they got clear of trie village, when they sepa rnted, goina across country singly or h rwos and thn-es, and by the time th police arrived from the nearest station thev had a pood two hours start. The second kiud of Divoitce is robbery on the highway. Here tee gang of rob bers attack a party of travelers, ro carts conveying pools, and sometime!- jt'-p a"d plunder the mail cart. A trader was going from one town to Jiother with a good desil of money an. ome valuable goods. He had with him vwo carta and two servant. As he was moving aid g a frequented highway, he deemed lumsell safe from all danger. But one evening, 1,1 a somewhat infre- onented spot, ar;aug of robbers, looking like travelers, su Idenly Bt on him and his servants, overpowered them,- gagged "2iJw5ro-rte7nT off the road, left them in a piece of scrub, where it was not likely they would be discovered until next morning. One of the robbers then dressed him self in the trader's clo'hes almost every occupation in India has a sp -cial dress and ast-unied his pirt. The two others acted as bis servants. They pot into another and more-frequented road, alonsr which police stations were established at short interva's. Going np to the first, the sham trader represented that he was most anxious to push on that night ; that he had a good deal of valui- ble property with him ; that he thought some robbers had got wind of this, and asked that he might have a po'iceman.to escort him from one station to anot.h r. Aud so the po'ice actually escorted the robbers with their booty to a larg' town at some distance off, reitchiu" which they soon disposed of the carts and all their contents. Cattle-lifting is a form of robberv very prevalent in some parts of India 1 more especially in the neighborhood of woods and forests, into which the stolen ca'tle can be driven. It prevails n the country lyin? between the Ganges nnd the Jumna, ns the fores tract at the foot of the Himalaya af fords the needful hiding-ground. A nair of t-tolen bul'ocks will b drive-' to this forest from the village win re they were lifted, twenty-five or thirty miles off, in the c nrse of the night. Lhe ordinary forms of robber, sim pie thft from the house or prson, done secretly and not openly, and where era t takes tn p'a 3 of force, are of cou-sj the most common. Here everything de pends on quietness of mov- ment anil leiglit of-uand, in both of wli-eh the fndian thief has attained great perfec tion. Then he is accustomed to go barefoot. His tread is habitually light. Mis limbs are naturally supple, and are made more so by the use of unguents, which enable him to roll himself up into a marvelonsly small space. The delicious coolness of the night has succeeded the tierce heat of a dayi i May. The moonlight makes a mimic lay ; but how sott is its light, however bright, compared w ththe sunlight of a few hours betorc ; A pnrty of travelers having cooked and eaten their frugal meal, have now spread their carpets and quilts on the .ground in the niang grove, and laid themselves down to sleep. All is now silent, save when the jackals rend the air with their horrid cries. A ja ;kal gives a yelp on one side of the grove ; another answers with a howl from ttie other side, lhese are not jackal, but confederate thieves, one of whom enters the grove at the en farthest from where the sleeping trave.- ers lie. On his Btomach he steals quiet ly along from one tree to another. Some leaves rustle ; a" traveler calls out whe-eupon the stealthy one coils him self into a he ip and lies dead stul, and will so lie for naif an hour or more, if DecessaTy. A "jackal" howls quits near the grove, as if it had just crossed it and rustled the leaves. The thief drags him self along the ground again. At leugth lie reaches the head of the sleeping row ol travelers. He passes his hand quiet ly under the pillows. This fat man is the rich man of thro party ; that bun ile which he usi-s for a pillow probaulv con tains something valuable. The duslty thief removes it gently wi'hout waking tho snoring sle per. He- next makes tliis other man turn over on his pidow by gentle touches on the face ; and. hav ing got what he wanted, creeps gently aw.iy. 0:16 of the extemporized jackals jives a bark here, the other a short howl there ; and t!io two thieves meet aud deenmp toge'lier. When out for the night, the thieves strip themselves of nil their elothni; except a short, tight loin-cloth, and smear themselves with oil, so as to be n!;e to si -i out r.f tlie rrrp ol anyone eiziiig them. They seldom carry aims, n the ordinary Reuse, but strap a coupl- f Imht spear-heads to each fore.trni. ith the points projecting beyond the Ibows. with a backward stroke of which hey can give a severe if m t deadl'v ound to aDy one trying to seize t'nem. -ienerally, however, they carry a small. harp knife. Ihe houses of many of even the well- o-do natives have mud walls only. hrougb which the thieves dig a hole to fleet an entry. This requires long, quiet. tnd patient work. A grat number o he Indian .ctories about robbers turn oi Iiis mode of proceeding; how one woman alone in the house with her chil i-en waited quietly until the thief put his head through the hole, and killed him wi'lj a blow of an ax ; how another waited th a rope in her hand, and, the thief th5.' time putting his heels in first, she tied his ankles quickly together and took him prisoner ; but when tlie neigh bors appi ared they found only a head less t link. English people in India are seldom robbed, - though for half the year the doors of the bungalows in which they live are left wide open, for the sake of coolness, all night long. The chief reason is that the articles in the houee are so different from tnose in use among the natives themselves that the attempt to dispose of them would at once attract suspicion. A thief in India trying to seU a spoon or fork would be like an En glish thief trying to dispose of an altar- clotn or rare g-m. Anotner reason is. that every householder keeps a ckokedar or private watchman, though it is not the personal wowess or vigilance of this often very aged man that potects you he himself being a thief by caste or profession, and his i-alary forming the blackmail you pay the confraternity. Dogs are also a source of protection. The native thief with his bare legs is especially afraid of ihem. A good many robberies, how ever, take p ace when people are march ing about the country during the cold weather, it is so easy to enter a tent. either by creeping uuder the canvas or -y making a slit in it ; and this reminds me of a case in which one of those thieves showed a great knowledge of psychology. A lady and her husband were asleep in their tent ; the lady was disturbed by a noise, anu saw oy tue ngui oi tne lamp, w men hung from the tent-pole, that Lhief was gliding about making up bundle of things that he thought would suit him. This bundle he had placed ou a table which stood not far from the bed. As he glided up to the table to add another article to the mass, bis eyes iuid those of tlie lady met. She had half opened her mouth, in order to -cream aud awaken her husband, when ti e man made one long step to the side of the bed and simply made a pass with his hand over the laoy's face. She was at once paralyzed for several minutes the man kept his eyes fixed on hers while he gathered up his bundle of things ; then, just as the long-delayed scream burst irom her lips, he dived un der the curtain of tho tent and disap peared. Tower ot the ITur Hat.. Til? rihig hat is virtually a sort of social guarantee for -the preservation of peace and order. -He wlio puts one on has given a hostage to tne community for his good behaNVOFi The wearer of plug hat must move with a certain se- dateness and propriety. Ke tinnot run, or hunt), or romp, or fret into a uht. except at the peril of his head-gea-. AIT the hidden influences of the beaver tend toward respectability. He who wears one is obliged to keep the rest of his bodv in decent trim, that there may be no incongruity between head and body. He is apt to become thoughtful through the necessity of watching the sky when ever he goes out. The cnances are that he will buy an umbreua, which is an other guarantee for good behavior, and the care of hat and umbrella perpetual and exacting as it must ever be adds to the sweetness of his character. The man who wears a plug hat naturally takes to the society of women, and all its ele-' vated tendencies. He cannot go hnnV ing and fishing without abandoning his beloved hat, but in the modern enjoy ment of croquet and lawn tennis he may sport his beaver with impunity. In the words, the constant use of a plug hat makes a man composed in manner, quiet and gentlemsniy in conduct, and the companion of the ladies. Ihe inev itable result is prosperity, muriage and church membership. Evil Effe Is of the Electric Light. An unexplained objection to the elec tric, light arises from its alleged evil ef fects ou the eyes. European observers state that the frequent variations in in tmsity to which the light is subject give rise to su Men aud frequent changes in the pupil, and, consequently, in the aecoinuiodation " of the eye, by which is meant that alternate contraction and lilatiou of the pupil by hich it suits itself to the variations of light. Such a light, therefore, causes not only muscu lar fatigue, but also a considerable de gree of blurring and indistinctness in the retinal image. The eye suffers both ivhen the lijiht is too dim and when it is loo blight. In the former case the ob ject must be b ought close to bo clearly sren, and an increased accommodative i-ftort is called for, which in most cases results in nearsightedness. In the lat ter case, the simple intensity of the ight produces undue contraction of the pupil, and an increase of tension within leeye. Is Consumption Contagions! It is surprising to some American vis itors to European hospitals to find that consumptive patients are kept in a de partment by themselves, while the same care for separating is not exhibited in regard to diseases deemed more conta gious on this side of the ocean. Yet the conviction that pulmon ,ry diseases are infectious is gaining strength among American physicians, and it is a note worthy fact that tlie fathers of mer?icine, Hippocrates and Galen, inclined strong ly to that opinion. The same belief has been entertained all along by many prominent physiologists and anatomists. Consumption often arises from eating of the meat of animals with diseased lungs, an I actual experiment has shown that when different animals have been fed on the diseased luugsof a cow, they have been attacked bv pulmonary disease. A rist- id snpervisiou of all meats fold, and a thorough system of ventilation in hous es, and especially in hospitals where consumptives are treated, seem to be the best preventives against the ac- quirementy aud communication oi the malady.

As she left the car and was crossing the track on the southern side, her foot slipped and turned and was caught fast in the track where the wire cable passes. Borne mperfection in the roadbed had caused the narrow aperture to expand, and the young girl's narrow foot was intrapped. Ihe engineer ol the east-bouud dummy saw the obstacle on the road in Reason to check his swift-approaching car, and alighted with the conductor and several passengers of investigating mind, who endeavored to release the slender foot, but their efforts were vain. Another cur and another brought up in fuueial row, and constant re-eufoi cements m the way of passing pedestrians cheered md enlivened tue bcene. An attempt was made to pry the iron rails forming the able chaunel further apart, hut they rh inly resisted all efforts. Everybody lad a suggestion : " Push your loos. orard;" "Pull it bock;" "Tip w -ideways;" "Lift your heel higher." the uuhuppy girl was almost tainting, out she per.severed in her efforts to ex oiicate the offending member. By this lme travel on the road baa virtually oeased. The fast car had long ago passed, and was steadily hpproacliing to tall into line at the reur oi the smgulsu procession. Down-town passengers bet ed and fumed, or sljwly cauibd the nil in disgust. On every street corner ;roups of waiting people berated the laxity of (street-car management. Ke- poiters lrom all the djwn-town dailies ivere proceetung westward to learn the uearihig of the largo crowd ropoitod to iave assembled in the Western addition. From the scene of tne accident euvoys uad leen dispatched to the railroad shops to bring appliances for taking up a section of the ruad. At this luucttue a tail, brawny Englishman, in the dress of a mechanic, lorced bis way tnrougn the throng, and, in a cheery voice, marked by ihe Derbyshire dialect, asked: "H'ye tried onlasteuiu' the yuung leddy'sbhoe?" Ten buttons flew from as many but tonholes ; in the twinkling of an eye the. root was free. oan francuco Vhron icle. Aversions of Appetites Dr. Oswald colls attention, in the Popular Science Monthly, to the "fact tnat an antipathy to a spocial dlsn indi cates the presence of a constitutional re uugnance, which it is not wise to disre gard. He says : 1 knew a Belgian soldier on whom common salt, in any combination, and u any dose exceeding ten pennyweights. acted as a drastic poison, and thousands ot Hindoos cannot taste animal food .vithout vomiting. Similar effect have obliged individu als to abstain from onions, sage, parsnips .tnd even from Irish potatoes. Ur, Pereira mentions the case of an English boy who had an incurable aversion to mutton i " He could not eat mutton in any form. i'he peculiarity was supposed to be iwing to tuprice, but the mutton was re peatedly disguise d and given to him un .nown ; but- noifurmly with the same . t-suit of producing violent vomiting and liarrhea. " And from the severity of the effects. vhich were in fact those of a virulent joison, there can be little doubt that, if ne- of mutton had been persisted in. t would soon ua-destroyed the boy s We know a lady whose missionary ork in Burniah has attracted tho atten tion of English-speaking people, who ould not eat rice. Oa -e wuen she was visiting in England, her hostess, think ug ihd aversion a mere whim, put a able-spoonful of -Tee in the soup. .'hough the soup was strained before eing served, and not a grain of rice was o be seen iu it, yet the moment the lady asted it she exclaimed, " Oh, there's ice in this soup 1" and was obliged to eave the table. Even Burglars Are Boshed. " Why," he replied to a cop, "I never saw so much push and rush in Detroit since the war, and 1 pr. same it is so all over tlie country.

Five minutes afterward he appeared with a small tin kettle, and, waging up to the counter, said ; " Whcrj shall I put them?" Pour them out ht re," said Mr, Drexel, indicuthrg a particulur spot on the counter. " I can't," said the seller, "they will all slip off on the floor." . Mr. Drexel, without withdrawing hi attention from the counting of his puroh' ascs of the dsy, called to his son r'rsiic to " bring a tiny."
