A Tidal Vn That Carried Away K.rery-
thlng but a Lfa-tithnnMi and Dentrnyed
FTr 40,000 Llrea Th Nteamer Intact
but la la tha MM it of a Janaia.
Tourints that visit Untavla nowadays
r quits out of the faaliion if tlier fail
lo malts the nnannKO throttuh Htinda
trait and aee all that i left of Krakntiia
and the reati(P of the ruin wrought by
tha terrible eruption of 1HH2. If they
punti np the Bay of LauipotiB, on the
Bnmatra tide of the channel, they are
likely to land on the low flhorea occu
pied by the village of Tetokli-tletonR,
and hire carta for a short jaunt Into the
Interior; and when they have gone about
two mile they will pause to take in the
curious scene presented; for here Is seen
one of the most Interesting results of the
great wave of Krakataa.
There was just one man amid all that
wild scene of death and devastation who
was not overwhelmed In the common
ruin. He escaped while 40,000 porished.
He was the lighthouse keeper, who lived
alone on an isolated rock in the strait
it was broad daylight when Krakatau
burst asunder, but in a few moments
the heavens were so densely shrouded by
dust, mud and smoke that the darkness
of midnight covered all the channel.
The guardian of the lighthouse was iu
the lantern 180 feet above the sea level
Here he remained safe and sound in the
midst of the terrible commotion.
He folt the trembling of the light
house, but It was so dark that he could
not sue the threatened danger. He did
not know that a tremendous wave had
almost overwhelmed the lighthouse,
and that us crest had nearly touched
the base of the lantern. He did not hear
it because he was deafened by the awful
detonation of Krakatua.
In a few moments the wave, over a
hundred feet in height, had swept along
a coast line of a hundred miles on both
sides of the channeL
Scores of populous villages were buried
deep beneath the avalanche 'of water.
Great groves of cocoanut palms were
leveled to the ground. Promontories
were carried away. New bays were d ug
out of the yielding littoral Every work
of human hands except that lighthouse
waa destroyed, and 40,000 persona per
ished in the deluge that mounted from
the sea or beneath the rain of mud that
tilled the heavens.
A little side wheel steamboat was borne
on the top of that wave through forests
and jangle, over two miles into the coun
try, and waa left as the ware receded.
It will be remembered that for weeks
before the final cataclysm at Krakatau,
the volcano was in state of eruption.
Pleaaure parties were made np at Ba
tavia to visit the volcano. Not a few
people landed on the island, little dream
ing that in the twinkling of an eye two
thirds of it waa to be blown into the air
as though shot from a gun. They wished
to get as near as they thought they might
safely venture to the growling, steaming
This little steamboat, on the day be
fore the explosion, carried one of these
parties to the island. There were only
twenty on board besides the crew. They
spent a couple of hours around the is
land and then steamed np the deep and
narrow Bay of Lampong, and it is sup
posed they anchored for the night in
front of the big town of Telokh-Betong,
which waa one of the largest settlements
on the south coast of Sumatra.
The ill fated pleasure party was never
heard of again. It is supposed that the
boat was turned over and over like an
eggshell in the surt It had every ap
pearance of such rough usage when it
was found some months later. The ma
chinery and furniture were badly broken
and were strewn about in the greatest
confusion. But the vessel held together,
and waa finally set down in good shape,
erect on her keel
Only two bodies were found in the
vessel. They were, of course, below
deck. As it was morning when she was
picked np by the wave it is supposed
that nearly everybody waa on shore.
Not a vestige remains of the villages
that lined the water edge. But the hulk
of this little boat still stands, battered
and broken, though as erect as when
he plowed the channel, and aha is the
most curious and interesting relio of the
greatest volcanic eruption of modern
times. New York Sun.
The Vnom of Snakes.
As to the venom of serpents, no dis
tinct chemical principle has as yet been
detected in it, though such there must
be, seeing that the effect of the saliva of
different poisonous snakes is different
the blood coagulating after a fatal cobra
bite, though not after that of a rattle
snake or a viper. It has also been ascer
tained that if the blood of a poisoned
animal be injected into a healthy one
the latter will be poisoned in the same
way as if it had itself been bitten, al
though its flesh may be eaten with im
punity. It is a mistake, however, to suppose
that a snake's poison can have no effect
unless actually mixed with the blood.
It will act after being absorbed through
inch delicate skin as that which liuos
our lips, though its action when thus
received is less powerful. Quarterly

Quaintly but nobly fashioned.

A voice that's ronnd and cheerfuU
It stays the sturdy In his piece.
And soothes tha weak and fearfuli

It steals with subtle unction.

To work Its (raelons function!

It lingers to car sea yon,

Tha Lamonada af Tore,
"Wunct upon a time," recently re
cently remarked an aged candy butcher
who dispenses peanuts and popcorn bars
at the Madison Square garden, "they
nsed to make circus lemonade aa was
circus lemonade, but them times Is gone
up the centerpole and they ain't never
agoin to come back. In them days all
we fellers noeded to clean up twenty or
thirty dollars before and after the show
was three pounds of sugar, a pint of
citric acid, a washin tub and a pomp
that threw a good stream. We nster
put lemons In and let 'em float around,
but when the crowd went we'd fish 'em
out agnin, and ono dozen lemons 'ud last
us through a whole county,
"1 tell you, young feller, a schooner
of that there lemonade, after it had been
a-etandin in the sun for an hour or so,
with a fly or two doin the Captain Boy
ton act in it, was something to be re
membered. Rut that's all changed now
They put stuff in it that makes It pink
and dudey lookln, they mix it in punch
bowls instead of washtubs, and instead
of savin money they nse real lemons in
stead of acid."
Then, with a sigh of regret for the
golden past, the aged man sold the small
boy a short weight bag of peanut, a
damaged popcorn bar and gave him two
plugged nickels in change. New York
Commercial Advertiser.

Small Boy Papa. Willie Winkers'

Papa Has?
"Yes, and it's the bee-ntafulist pony 1
ever saw,"
"You don't sayl"
"Just as gentle as can be. I rode on
it an didn't fall off once. A boy couldn't
get hurt on that pony."
"I suppose not."
"It eats hardly anything, too, and
doesn't cost much to keep."
"It doesn't?"
"Not anything, hardly. Willie said
his papa bought it real cheap."
"No donbt."
"And he said there was plenty more
where that came from."
"Humph! Do yon want me to buy
you a pony?'
"N-o. 1 was only thinkln what a
nice pony Willie Winkers has."
"Yes. Willie's got a nice papa, too,
hasn't he?' Good News.
Wood In Egyptian Stonework.
Probably the oldest timber in the
world which has been subjected to the
nse of man is that found in the ancient
tomples of Egypt in connection with the
stonework, which is known to be at
least 4,000 years old. This, the only
wood used in the construction of the
temples, is fh the form of ties holding
the end of one stone to another. When
two blocks were laid in place, an ex
cavation about an Inch deep waa made
in each block, in which m tie shaped like
an hour glass is driven. It is therefore
very difficult to force any stone from ita
position. The ties appear to have been
of the Timarish or Shittira wood.

A Venerable Goose.
The oldest goose on record as now liv
ing belonged to John Ray, a respectable
resident of Croton Landing, N. Y. He
says he purchased the goose from Isaac
Hill, who made an affidavit at the time
that the faithful fowl was fifty-two
years of age then. The goose lays flity
eggs a year, and was sold by Mr. Ray at
the end of the third year of bis posses
sion for $100. He says, to the best of his
knowledge and belief, she is now eighty
six years of age. New York Sun.
New England Cures.
A New Hampshire cure for sore throat
is to wear about the neck a stocking, in
the toe of which a potato has been tied.
According to a Maine belief, a nutmeg
pierced and bung on a string around
the neck prevents boils, croup and neu
ralgia. The effect of a Connecticut
wooden nutmeg is unknown. Kansas

It was 8 o'clock in the morning when
Mrs. Higinbotham shook Iter hiiHhand.
"Ugh," he responded nnconsclonsly.
"Hiram! Hiram!" she exclaimed in a
"U-ttKh," he observed.
She gave him another shake.
"Hiram," she whispered, "there's rob
bers down stairs."
"Ugh?' he ventured again, this time
With a rising inflection indicating that he
was gradually atmorbing the idea that
Something was wrong.
She gave him a tremendous shake.
"Ugh," he almost shontnd, sitting
straight np, "what In thunder's the row,
Pho clapped her hand over his month.
"8h shT she whispered, "there's
burglars down stairs."
"Aw," be growled, "we onght to be
thankful they are not np stairs. Oo to
sleep!" and he fell bank to the pillow,
"Hiram, I tell yon," she Insisted, with
another shake, "there's burglars down
stairs. I hoard them. Yon go down
and see what they want."
"Maria." he protested, "I'll do noth
ing of the sort. If they don't see what
they want they can ask for It That's
"But yon shall go down, Hiram, and
see," she urged and pleaded at the same
"I won't, I tell you, Maria. Because

Mrs. Higinbotham gave a sudden
cliili u at Ins arm.
"There," she nearly screamed, "I hear
them coming up stairs now."
"Well, dear," he said soothingly,
"you'd better jump np and put on a
dress. It will never do in the world for
yon to receive strange gentlemen in your
present attire."
"We'll lie murdered in onr beds," she
"Do you really think yon will," he in
quired with some interest
"I'm sure of it, Hiram," she sobbed.
"Suppose yon get out and lie on th
floor, Maria, and then yon won't be," ht
suggested heartlessly. "I'm willing to

Mrs. H. began to cry.
"What's the matter, Mana?" Mr. H.
asked, as if he had jnat that moment
discovered her grief.
VYau're mean, horrid man, Hiram
Higinbotham," she said in her natural
voice, and she began to get out of bed.
"Where are you going, Maria?" he in
quired uneasily.
"Down stairs," she answered heroical
ly. "As between yon upstairs and the
burglars down stairs, I prefer the bur
glars," and down stairs she went, and the
black cat in the preserve closet upset
four jars of her finest quinces in its mad
effort to escape.
She, screamed, but Hiram Higinbotham
made no sign; be knew he had forgotten
to put the cat in the cellar when he shnt
the house up for the night and reported
to his wife that everything was all right

Home of tha Sea Nerpont-
The question of the "great sea ser
pent" has of late come before us with an
episcopal sanction; but whatever may
be the explanation of the various appear
ances which have given a certain cur
rency to a belief in the existence of an
unknown marine monster of some kind,
that small sea serpents exist is most cer
tain. Thoy are all marine, and with the
exception of one or two species never quit
the water. Aa might be expected nnder
such circumstances they bring forth
their young alive, and these can swim as
soon as they are born.
Mr. Boulunger tells ns that their home
is essentially the coasts of the Indian
ocean and the tropical parts of the west
ern Pacific, from the Persian gulf to
New Guinea and North Australia. One
species, however, ranges from west and
south Africa to the western coast of
tropical America and extends northward
to Japan and southward to New Zea
land. Quarterly Review.
Two Guilty Consciences.
A Danbury yonth went trout fishing
and ventured to drop a sly line into a
posted brook. Soon the approaching
figure of the owner loomed up in the dis
tance, and the Danbury youth knew he
had been seen. He took incontinently
to the bushes, whore he spent a very
miserable two hours in hiding and
caught a cold that kept him two days in
Meanwhile the terrible owner, who
was not the owner at all, had sought a
similar refuge at sight of the original
culprit, and not until his teeth chattered
like a typewriter did he venture to leave
the friendly bnt damp shelter and slink
away from the scene. He was an elder
ly man, and his shore in the day's sport
resulted in a four days' rheumatic limp.
