THE SNOW FLEA,
A Plague of Siberian Wastes
I Philadelphia Record.]
When the lamented Poet-Traveler
Bayard Taylor wrote of .-nowHukes as
•'the wild white bets of winter" it is
doubtful that he imagined the pretty
fancy contaioed a large amouut of
truth. Such, however, is the and
from recent important discoveries made
in this city by students and professors
of one of the academies it has been
shown that the beautiful snow of
poetry bids fair to become a provoking
reality. About three months ago there
arrived in this city a box which, on be
ing opened, apparently contained about
a pint of snow. A note which accom
panied it stated that the contents had
been collected from the deck of the
British steamship Glenchester, during
a snow squall off the Hanks of New
foundland, while on a voyage from
Hull to Montreal, and that the Cap
tain, Edwin Manning, bad been advis
ed to forward the specimens to the
Academy to be investiarated. The
matter was kept quiet, and only within
the lest day or so has the result be
come public, and as it is undoubtedly
a matter of considerable importance
we print it at length. The examina
tion of the snowy.looking stuff uuder
the microscope at once disclosed the
fact that it was composed of thousands
of very minute insects covered with
silvery scales, and nearly all in a vig
orous state of health. A searching in
vestigation was at once set on foot,
acd strict secrecy enjoined on all con
cerned, and it was soon proved be
3"otid a doubt that the insects were
no less than the dreaded snow fleas
of Eastern Siberia, w liich have never lie
fore been found in any part of the world
more than a few hundred miles from
that country. A well-known professor
of natural history, who formed oue of
the investigating committee, said yes
terday: "The first specimens we receiv
ed were sent from Mi nlreal by a ship
master named Manning, who discover
ed them on his ship's deck on the At
lantic ocean, but we have found large
quantities of them about the city dur
ing and after all the snow storms of
this season. The snow-flea, or, to
give its scientific name, the Bisti-Sibe
tius, belongs to the family of Produr
d:v, or "Spring-tails," and, although
very much smaller than the ordinary
black flea, closely resembles it in form
and habit, one great difference bein<?
that while ii is capable of leaping, it
does so by means of tail, aud not as
the flea does—with its legs. The leap,
in the case of the snow-flea, is perform
ed by doubling the tail up under the
abdomen and suddenly throwing it
backward, which results in a forward
movement of the body—in fact, it is
from this characteristic that the
name Spring-tail is derived.
They are very tenacious of
life, and breed very rapidly, especially
when the weather is cold and dry.
damp weather seeming to throw them
into a stupor. In Eastern Siberia the
people have to use every precaution
against the pests, and many legends
speak of them as the "snow of Hades,"
and say that the souls of the wicked
are being tortured by being exposed
to driving storms of them. "As yet,"
continued the Professor, "we have
found but few £ase« in this city where
people seem to have been sufferers from
the insects, but should a spell of cold,
dry weather set in it will unquestiona
bly be the signal for much complaint.
The insects, which can only by the
closest scrunitj' lie distinguished from
fine snow, fasten to the clothes of pe
destrians and cling there until the per
son enteis a wurm temperature, when
they at once begin to bite in the most
vicious manner, and, although the
bite is not poisonous, it is for a few
rpopents even more painful than that
of the common flea. As a rule, the
bites are mainly confined to the legs,
for the snow-flea does not seem to pos
sess the power to climb and wander
over the body of its victim. One gen
tleman, a resident of Frankford, was a
few days since much annoyed by them,
and his little boy, who was bitten at
the same time, suffered great pain lor
several hours. Correspondence with
scientific men in Montreal and Boston
show that the pests have also appear
ed at those points, and in the former
pity have created great discomfort.
The strangest feature noticeable is the
fact that it is never found more than
eighteen inches above the ground,
and servant girls have often been
forced to wear rubber boots while
sweeping off sidewalks in front of their
master's residences. Professor .lames
McArchlield, of this city, has prepared
an exhaustive article on the subject,
which will be read at the next meet
ing of the Academy.

Ben Butler's Bridge.
How Massachusetts' New Gov
ernor Made the Most Nar
row Escape of His Life.
The recent triumph of Ben Butler
and the clever devices with which he
neutralized the effects of the "splits" in
his own ranks, says Derrick Dodd in
the San Francisco Post, recalls an in
cident of the General's early career,
aud which is interesting in showing
that even in his youth Ben displayed
those strategic abilities which have
since done so much for his military
and political career. •
It appears that young Butler was
much enamored of a pretty girl who
lived on a farm about six miles from
that of the Butler family in the west
ern part of Massachusetts. The conn
try beauty was a coquette, however,
and kept quite a train of admirers in
suspense, each rival doing his best to
gain the advantage of the others. At
last matters were brought to a climax,
and the damsel appointed a certain
night when she would reuder her final
decision as to which suitor she prefer
It goes without saying that they
were all better looking than Ben, but
the latter determined to putthe inside of
his head against the outside of those of
his opponents. The nearest way to
the fair flirt's house, and the one taken
by all her eager followers, was over a
bridge formed by a single and some
what slippery log placed across a deep
brook in the rear of the house. Young
Butler repaired to this bridge an hour
earlier than the accustomed "courtin"
time," carrying a pail of lard with
which he carefully annointed the log by
the mellow moonlight, backing him
self across it astraddle.
As he afterwards sat with his sweet
heart, waiting for the other suitors to
appear, a loud splash came from the
brook. Ben's game eye twinkled, and
in his imagination he could see' one of
his gorgeously got up fellow candi
dates climbing up thu opposite bank
with his teeth chattering and heading
for home across lots, but the conspira
tor looked as innocent as a cat in the
dairy and said nothing
Pretty soon there came another
souse, and after while another. The
beauty began to look at the clock und
showed evidence of decided pique at
the negligence of her other admirers—
a circumstance Ben did not fail to turn
to his own profit.
Presently he could faintly hear
voices in the distance, and he knew
that the last two swains were ap
proaching together. Pretty soon
came a tremendous double splash.
"Dear me," said the young lady,
"how the fish are jumping to-night!"
The upshot of it was that when the
future Governor rose to go the slight
ed beauty gave him her haud. Sealing
the bargain with au old-fashioned busk
ing bee kiss, Butler left bis prize in
such a state of exultation that he for
get all about the greased log, and the
first thing he knew both heels hit him
in the back of his head and be took a
header down below, just as his victims
had done. He clibmed up the already
well-clawed bank and made six miles to
home, uttering Kerneyisms unfit for
publication. He was taken with chills
and fever as a result, and, when he got
well, found his fiancee had eloped with
a hired man. Butler tells this as the
narrowest escape of his life, as he says
the girl began eating onions the very
next day after she became engaged.
The General has been luckvever since.

now the sentries are happy.
—A young lady had a narrow es
cape at a lire in New York a few nights

her other hair and left the house only
half aud hour before the fire broke oat.
