Til! Ol'riCIAL WHIFPINQ IN PfBLIC OF ALKXAN
At a gathering of Poles iu the little
village of Kcruat. on the Southern Nnie
men, on the 29ih of July last, when all
thought thcmselvi-g secure from the in
trusion of any of the numerous spies
who keep the Russian officials informed
of the malcontents among tliem, Alexau
(Jrina Kossowilz, a young lady whose
father, the younger son of a formerly
nohle Polish family, was killed in the
recent troubles iu Warsaw, expressed
her eympathy with the unfortunateg
hm Russiau severity had murdered or
sent into exile. The meeting was a
purely eocul one. and none dreamed
that anything said thire would reach
the tat of spies, for all present were
known to be Pole, and firm haters of
the harsh rule under which they then
lived." Still, as the youug girl in her
passionate lenieiubraucts of a father's
lovn depl ircd his dt&lb, expressed her
rympathy with the relit llion and her do
teelHtiou cf her opprei-tors, she was cau
tloitrJ It-el lier "louu" tone suouia tujOte
the peopie at the window to hear her.
Willi a hasty glanca as though to read
iu the fuct-s of those about her who
ehould betray her, the young lady ceased
her execiHti ina and relapsed into silence.
When ten o'clock arrived, the latest hour
of 1'olixh gatherings, the company sepa
rated, and Ali'Xnndrina Ki g-owi'.z, ac
companied by her aiSauc:d, Julian Te-
mi-tieky, went to her home.
If in pureing fium the Lou.-e of the
gathering, ehe had been more observant.
Aiexaudriiia would have Been the ma
liciously triumphant glances cast after
her by Caiheriue Merdoff, a woman of
about thirty-five years, a Pole by birth,
and a sympathizer with her unhappy
countrywomen whenever her own pas
sion was not concerned, and, from the
subsequent proceedings it seems, that in
this case she had been superseded in the
affections of the youug Dr. Tewensky by
the more beautiful aud younger Alexau
Ou the following day, shortly after
rising, Alexandrina was seized
own home, a short distance from Kernst,
by two Cossacks of the guard at the gar
rison, and taken before the petty judge.
The young lady ot nineteen handsome
and trembling, produced no feeling of
pity Having at first denied the accusa
tion, she was confronted with Catherine
Merdoff. and then acknowledged her of
fense. In pas.-ing sentence the petty
judge raid that her scdittnu. utterances
tuiplit have warranted him in sending
her before a higher tribunal, where the
penalty woaild be death ; but iu view f
her youth and com-titution," be should
merely order her to receive thirty-five
l.ihbes of the knout. Almost benumbed
with shame aud terror, the girl was led
away to be prepared fur puuishmeut, for
in Russia all sentences, save tbat of
death, are carried out itnmed.atcly after
tliey have been pronounced.
Word having b-en sent to the officer
commanding the troops, a guard of two
hundred men was ordered into the garri
son gijunie, and the executioner of the
troops was called upon to he ready to
carry nut the) duties of bis office Iu
half an hour after the sentence had been
given the troops had foimed in a hollow
square, in the centre of whieh had been
plxced a scflfTdd, standing on four legs.
.the top of which was an inclined plane
Beside this !tood the executioner, having
in his muscular baud the knout. This
weapon cousists of a stick, or handle,
two feet long, with a lash four feet long
af soft leather, to the end of which is
attached by a loop a piece of flat raw
hide two inebes wide and two feet long.
In tbe hands of an experienced man the
piece of raw hide can be made to cut
like a knife
As the executioner stood facing the
scaffold, Alexandrina Kossowitz was

bauds strapped to tbe two upjH-r corners,
and her bnkles secured to the font of tbe
structure. One of the executioner's as
sistants held her head, and the petty
judge gave the order for whipping to
commence Twirling the long lash in
the air the executioner steppe'd suddenly
backward, and with a sharp crae.k tbe
thong fell on the back of the sobbing
girl, cutting a livid streak from her right
shoulder to her waist. A terrible tremor
passed over her, and a quick low cry
escaped her lip?, but it was the only
sound she uttered, aud were it not for
the blood which soon commenced to flow,
it might have eeemi d that the whipping
was being done ou the back of a corpse.
When the last l.teh ha 1 been given the
young iy was unfastened, and, with
her clothing rudely thrown over her, she
was taken to prison, and there, alter
thauking the judge for his mercy, ac
cording to tbe necessary . foimula, she
was delivered over to her friemls.
Five days afterward tbe Uazette of
Wilua contained this announcement:

caily ..jealous, took the child fn'ta the
maid and tiied to (ii.-nsis.s her. But the
girl refused to go unless dismissed by
her master. One niglit the wife watched
the husband and saw him enter the bed

The jury unanimously acquirted fur, and

A STORM Or TWBNTT-rOI'R TEARS AOO.
A correEprndei:t, writhtg from Square
graphic narrative, which fell from the
lips of an old resident of that place :
"On the 14 h of February. 1S4V
said Uncle Tommy Cook. "I was nwa
kened in the uii;ht by the shaking of my
house: I could feel my bed trembling
under me,-aud as I rose and d inned my
clothes in the daikuess, I told my wife
that an awful storm was ui-on us, and I
feared it would mike dreadful woik. I
was wret-k master, and the appearance of
the sky tho day before had tol l me to
expect this; but when I opened the
door and parsed out the wind uearly lift
ed me off my feet. I was strong and
tough, however, and buttoning my oat
close to my chin, I stalled dowu to tbe
When I 'reached the meadows I found
them uuder the water, and the wind
blowing so fearfully that I was compell
ed to turn about J.tid back towards the
shore. 'I he sleet struck my face like
needles, aud I wa3 forced to do this to
escape the shot that more than once
brought me to a stand still But I kept
sIm JTr wa tr-srTwTwar s tirt.ult.-i
and here and there I could catch sights
of figures moving toward the beach.
U ben 1 finally passed upon the bluff,
I saw through the driving euow and i-l.-et
and the almost blinding spray of the
breakers a schooner broadside on. with
all ber sails gone, and pounding upon the
beach. The breakers went pver her
deck at every sweep, and I could see a
mau in the front and one in tho after rig
ging. I hurried away to get a rope, and
while I was gone one of the men drop
ped into the water. When I came back
there were five fishermen on the ground,
and we instantly formed a line for the
purpose of bringing iu the other.
Before, etartir.g I paused a mornont end
lo-'ked sharply at him, thinking he was
frozen in the rigging, as the: ropes were
covered with ice, ami it was one of the
coldest iiiehts 1 ever knew. But while
looking I saw him raise his liht hand,
and fasten one button of his coat. We
then formed our line, an I managed to
bring him in. As they laid him' nut up
on the beach I raised his cap aim found
bis for, head still warm, and I be!ieve if
we had posse-sed facilities lie might have
revived, but in the iuteu.-e c;dd he lived
but a few minutes I inser.
I had scarcely raised my eyes from
his face when I aw, scarcely eue hun
dred yards from shore, the American
burk John Minturn going by like a race
horse. Kvery sail was blown away, and
her deck was nowded with passengers,
many of whom shouted to us as the cor
rent carried them sif:Iy by The ves
sel first spoken of was the Alabama, that
lort her entire crew, numbering six. As
they were now all gone, I hurried ou
down the beach to see what could be
done to help the Minturn in her ex
She soon struck, by which time linn
dreds of the neighbors hail gathered on

something to save the women and chil

could see nothing U j and by the bod

caught by the timbers iu snch a way that
his head was wrenched entirely off On
the same night the Lotta came ashore
and lost two of her crew. One of there
was the captain who attempted to swim
ashore, but was swept under the bow of
the bark New Jersey, where he was
drowned. The latter vessel managed to
get off without any loss
Shortly after this, and mainly through
the efforts of ex-t.overnor William A

use along our coasts, and its success has
been so marked that we have had no se

A Hew Way cf Siliirg Tigers.'
sravcuMNS rcT TO GOOD tss.
An English tiger hunter ti lis the -
I nse the old Kentucky pea rifle,
eighty-bore, which I had with me in
Texas aud Colorado. Since then 1 got
it converted into a breech loader atd it
now takes three and a half drachma of
powder, and a hollow picket nearly
throe diameters in length, made of thin
steel and coated wi;h platinum to giwe it
weight anil enable it to take the rifling.
There is a small screw plug in the base,'
which can be taken cut. The cases,
w hich are very long, and (lie pickets, I
am obliged to get out from Springfield,
Massachusetts, as there are none manu
factured in Fngland. Well, the secret
of my bagging to a certainty every tiger
I hit with a single buUet from this pea
rifle is this, that I fill np the hollow in
the picket with nine or ten gra'ms-aif
strychnine of Scheie's strength. That
is, I reckon, an overdose, as I bel'isve
one grain of this strength would kill a
tiger; but I give him to the extent the
picket will hold.
With this bullet so prepared, it does
not matter In Uie slightest "degree iu
what part of the body you hit the tiger;
all tbat is necessary is that the bullet
penetrate the skin somewhere, and if you
sit down aud smoke your p'pe, as I gen
erally do after firing, yon will find the
animal lying dead in from ten minntos to
an hour or so, according, I fancy, as to
whether the picket breaks up at a larga
or small vein when found, the tiger is
frequently as stiff as if he had been shot
two or three dcys previously It is very
curious to watch the effects of the
strychnine, which appear to vary a good
deal. On one occasion I came on a tiger
that I had a few minutes before wounded
in the fleshy part of the hind leg; he
was standing motionless with his legs
spread out like a fonr-legged stool, aud
panting like an express steam engine I
did not mind in going np to within a few
yards of biro. a5 I bad my three-barrel
breech-loader in my hand ; but he, nev
ertheless, took no notice of me, although
he must have seen me. I then went
gradually nearer, hot he never moved,
aud at last, not wishing to keep the beast
in pain, I we.-.t np into a tree just above
him, and punched a neat hole in his
skull with a solid picket from the Ken
tucky. On several other occasions I have sceti
a tiger wl, cli I had wounded walking
through the jungle apparently all right,
but falling into convulsions whenever a
twig or branch of a tree which he was
passing mider touched his back To
show how infallible is this method of
killing a tiger, I rnce? fired at a tiger
da-hing across me at full tear, aid mule
sure I hid missed him, but the same
evening after I had returned from shoot
ing, a cow herder reported a dead tiger in
the jungle where I had been. I instantly
repaired to the spot by for chliph), for
fear some ilhers nvght eat him. and at
once saw it was the tig r I had firej at.
After at least half an hour's starch for
the bullet t.i irk. we at !t found th
picket imbedded in ens cf the joint cf
his tail, within al out rn fnet from the
tip of it I learned l .i idea from an
eh phant l.nn'er at Ntetw. in Southern
Cetnrai Africa lie told rne he has fre
quently bridged 1 1- ph.vrta l.y this mean!
at from 400 to .".till yards but he used a

Would have held twenty or twentv-fivn
grains at I. a-t. I had no opportnuily of
trying it there myself, as I had nonieans)
of obtaining ,lrrt Inline. Of Course, if
you t ke to my p!n. you m-ist do as I
lo with every an'mal you bag, that is,
collect dry wool and burn him the mo
ment his skin is off albeit to' the great
disgust of the. villagers, many of whom
are as fond of tiger's fl-sh as he some
time is of theirs
D'lHLHTV, the late Chiet Justice of
Ireland, tells a good story of his posting
da s. He was going circuit in a post
chaire. and at a dangerous part, wbe.ra
llie road skirted a decent, one of the
horses, that had been behaving wildly
all the way, begin kicking furioti-ly.
Much alarmed, l-.he. ty called out:
This is outrognouj I don't think that
horse has ever been in I ames before."

Some one wickedly says that the rea

is because their mothers make it for
