THE WICHITA TWINS.
Thought Alike, Talked Alike and
Suffered Alike in Kansas.
From the Kansas City Journal.
The Wichita (Kan.) EagIo tells a re
markable story of the current of sym
pathetic lullucneu which llowed between
two brothers. They are John Stites and
AVllbur Stites, twins, and they have
lived In Wichita, for many years. About
a week ago John wns taken to a local
hospital, suffering from cancer of the
stomach. On AVednesdny night Wilbur
went from the bedside of his brother to
his home. At the moment when Wil
bur left there was no appearance of
immediate danger In the condition of
John. Yet on entering tho house, a few
minutes later, Wilbur throw up his
hands and ejaculated, "John Is dead!"
And bo it developed. John had died at
tho hospital at the exact moment when
the thought came to .Wilbur.
In 1S73 Juhn nnd Wilbur were mar
ried to Alice und Carrie Worth, In Clay
county, Mo., and these brides worn
twins. Furthermore, an elder brother
of the Stites twins married an elder
sister of llui Worth twins, and the two
families were thus connected in a man
ner seldom found.
Both John und AVllbur were well
known and respected citizens of AVIch
Ita, and for years it has been noticed
by their friends that they thought alike
on every Htibject. Often, us a test, they
wero questioned separately, and each
gavo the same reply, differing, perhaps,
only a little In their forms of expres
sion, Their business partner, J, S,
Alexander, has. been with them thirty
years. He knew them apart, but ho
could not tell how ho knew, "I have,"
he said, "made tho most mlnutu ex
amination of their faces mid forms, of
their eyes, and expression of their
voices and tlielr laughter, of their
habits and manners, and, for tho life of
me, I can't tell why I knew them sep

CAT AND SNAKE EIGHT.
How Pussy Vanquishes the Most
From tho Scotsman.
The fer-de-lance is one of the most
deadly poisonous snakes in the world.
It is common in Brazil and some of tbu
AVest Indian islands, nnd was particu
larly so in the forests of Martinique,
now destroyed by tho volcano. The
head Is Hat and triangular, the length
five to seven feet, a horny spike on the
end of tho tall that rasped against hard
objects. Tlio bite is almost instantly
fatal, and even when Immediate deatli
Is averted, serious, and eventually fatal,
troubles may set In.
The creature which fears the monster
least Is the brave cat. Seeing a snnkce,
she at once carries her kittens to a
place of safety, then boldly advances to
tho encounter. She will walk to the
very limit of tho serpent's striking
range and begin to feint, teasing him,
startling him, trying to draw his blow.
A moment more and the triangular
head, hissing from tho coil, flushes
swift as if moved by wings. But
swifter still the stroke of the armed
paw that dashes the horror uslde,
flinging it mangled In the dust.
Nevertheless, pussy does not yet d.ire
to spring; the enemy, still active, has
almost instantly reformed his coll; but
she Is again In front of him, watching,
vertical pupil against vertical pupil.
Again the lashing stroke; again the
beautiful countering; again the living
death is hurled aside, and now the
sealed skin is deeply torn, one eye
socket has ceased to llame. Once more
tho stroke of the serpent; once nioro
tho light, quick, cutting blow, But the
trlgonocephalus is blind, Is Htupelled;
before ho can attempt to coll pussy has
leaped upon him, nailing the horrible
Hat head to the ground with her two
sinewy pawa. Now let him lash, writhe,
twine, strive to strangle her. In vain!
He will never lift his head: an instant
nnjro and ho lies still; tho keen white
teeth of the cat have severed the ver
tebra, Just behind tho triangular skull.
Little Chance for Him.
