f i ALTOH DAILY TELEGRAPH. BT W. t. KOBTOK, Cot. lasted sum «M» ItrMM, Alton, m. THURSDAY BVK., FEB. 17. A Snakc-lllic llonler. Not long strico n uiuu known n« BI»J>- tlste Ricquor, ot ureolo-Frenvh descent, died ou liU farm ueur KtidlUHkia, 111,, write* a corwspouileiit uf the St. Louis Qlobt-Democrat: for nearly a half, century previous to his death he -wa» credited With. the remarkable gift ot .healing make-bite*, ami of being on familiar terms with the mitsi venomous reptiles the coulitrv nfTonUd. It was »akl this power hiul been given him hy a Canadiau on his death-bed in return for some important service, as an act of friendship. • Tho conditions or circumstances attttndhip tlm transfer of this curious knowledge never were learned with certainty, as KH poHsensor WBB extremely jealous of it, guarding it with the greatest cure, and revealed it to no one until the hour of higdeath, when he imparted the gift to his eldest son, who can not be induced to speak of it in the preBonctj of strange.!*. There is, however, an abundance of living evidence of Kirenwrs power to cure the bito of minkrs without the HHO of any kind of medicine, and of his apparent love, or fellowship with and control over all kinds of snakes. He would never consent to their being killed or injured, and it is said that he kept the largest and most venomous specimens about his place, and that they would approach him to be caressed'or disappear into their hiding places at his will. Whenever a person within reach of old Baptiste was bitten, he was usually sent for to relieve the pains and render the poison innocuous. In this he was never known to fail. He uimply placed his hands upon the wound and cautioned the sufferer not to take any medicine offered hy others. It would Insult him highly if asked how much he charged for his sen-ices, and would only accept something, whatever it might be, if offered as a present upon some other occasion. Being a devout Catholic, his gift brought him into bail repute with the parish priest, who, as the story goes, forbade him partaking of the holy sac- sament unless lie foreswore the exercise of his black art. The bishop, however, during one of his periodical visits to the parish, is said to have had an interview with his offending parishioner. Ho inquired of Ricquar how he < came by the gift, and why he did not, at the command of the priest, abjure such uncanny practices. Ricquar responded that ho had no compact with the evil one, nor was there anything ; wicked about it. How could • there be any harm, he argued, iu saving the life of a fellow-creature when it was so easily done. He had resolved many times to give up the use of it, but when an ox- cited neighbor came begging him to come and save a little child, or the wife who had been bitten, ho could not refuse, even at the risk of losing favor in the church. He was granted a dispensation by the bishop to' participate in the comforts of tho communion without revealing his art at confession, and when he died he was honored with a perpetual rusting-place in St. Mary of Help pemotory. i. •',•.'• -..-.•* Proverbs About Snow. There arc many of these. Some have relation to signs by which the number of storms during tho season are to bo calculated, and others to the number of storms in the following winter, while still others claim a connection between the moon and the snow. Passing by these, it'may be interesting at tho •beginning of the snow season to have a selection of U»e proverbs which seem to have a foundation in fact. Snow is generally preceded by a general animation of man and boast, which continues until after the snowfall ends. ; / When the first snow remains on the ground some time in place* not exposed to the sun. expect it lutril winter. When the first mow fulls cli'y It moans to Ho, But ilukt'H llprht. and eol't bring rain oft. Burning wixxl In winter popi! inoro before snow, • When dry loaves rattle on the troos expect snow. Whon In the dIUili tho snow doth He, 'Tin waiting for morally and by. It takes throe cloudy days to bring a heavy snow. If tho snow tlakcs increase in si/.e a thaw will follow. If there is no snow before January there will bo the more snow in March and April. In March inn0)1 snow. To plants anil trees nuioli woe.—Gorman. Tho nioro snow the more healthy t4ie season. Heavy snow in winter favors the crops of tho following summer. A snow year, a rieli year. Snow is u poor man's fertilizer, and good crops will follow a winter of heavy snowfall, Jf much snow be spread ou the mountains in winter, tho season of planting will ho made blue with verdure—Indian. A heavy fall of snow Indicates a good year for crops, and a light fall the reverse. Much sloet in winter will bo followed by a good fruit year— Boston Journal, Among the visitors at a panorama of the battle of Bull Uiin in Washington, tho other day, was a lady of striking appearance, who seemed to take great interest in tho picture. When tho -lecturer began to describe that portion of the battle near the railroad track,, and said: "The conflict hero can only bo likened to features of the baltlo of Gettysburg, and the dash made at this point \» said .to have equaled the famous Picket!.'* charge," tho lady seemed to take greater interest, in tho picture, and when she turned to look at tho lecturer he recognized her us i IM widow of G«u- oral Plckett, that dashing Virginian who lud tlm confwlurute charge at Gettysburg. JUKES. Marat Balsteail tli* Vlctlm-InUreiUag Reportoclttl Experience. "1 dou't know that I can gay anything that will be of interest/' said Henry Watterson to a reporter as he and John Russell Young did penance for the Clover Club's dinner over a bottle of ginger ale in the Union League cafe to-day. "I have about worked myself dry In the column* of the Cour- itr-Journttl since I returned from Europe, And I have token a week's holiday to give its renders a wst. I think Interviewing a newspaper man Is like carrying coals to Newcastle. Once in a while, however, 1 think a good interview quite healthy, and I always was of an accommodating disposition. "A few years ago Mitral Hulstead, Horace White, and myself went to Boston to hear Carl Schurz deliver his oration on Charles Sumner. It was right after Simmer's death, and Mr. Schurz was one of our party. On our way back to New York we picked up Sam Bowles at Springfield, Mass., and he accompanied UB to New York, where we hod a little dinner party at the Brevoort House. While the dinner was in progress and the most intricate problems of National Government wore being solved, word was brought in that, a representative of the New York World desired to nee Mr. Wattcrson. "I wont down into the hotel office and there found a little baldheaded man, who said his name was Oxford. He asked me if my name was Watterson, and 1 promptly told him it was not. I politely informed him that Mr. Watterson was engaged and could not be disturbed. I told him my name was Halstead and expressed my" willingness to accommodate him if 1 could. Mr. Halstend was at that time agitating the coinage of silver and — well, I interviewed Mr. Oxford. 1 denounced the Silver bill in unmeasured terms. I spoke vigorously in favor of increased gold coinage, and expressed the opinion that a greenback currency was the backbone, of financial prosperity. I declaimed against centralization, and declared in favor of State right*. There was not an expressed opinion of Mi% Halstcad's I did not reverse, and when the reporter left me he was full up to the neck with facts. The next day the World had a two-column interview with Murat Halstead that just made Mr. Halstead wish he had never been born. He wrote to the editor denying that he had seen or spoken to a World reporter or any other- reporter, and that the whole interview was a fabrication. The World published his denial with the following editorial comment: 'When the World reporter interviewed Mr. Halstead yesterday Mr. Halstead had just been dining with Mr. Watterson,'' For a long time I expected Halstead to call me out, but he finally forgave me." "The first piece of reporting I did was for Forney's Press," said Mr. Young. ."It was u n account of the reception of John ' Brown's body at the old Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore station. Goovge Alfred Townsend and I used to do Select and Common Council for the Press along in 1860 and 1861. I got $7 a week and Townsend got $8. Wattersnn was Washington correspondent of the Press at the time and got about $20 a \veek-" "Yes, that's about the figure," said Mr. Wattcrson, "and [ used to write some pretty good letters, too — letters that wore pretty extensively copied all over the country." "Now, the first editorial work I ever did," added Mr- Watterson, "was on the Cicfronifiii, the oflicial journal of the old Episcopal Academy, at Juniper and Locust streets. Old Ur. Have was Principal of the academy, and a charming man he was, too. I hod for associate -Editors Ed. N. Benson, . now President of the Union League, and George O. Tluumis of (lie firm of Drexel & Co. Frank Mclaughlin printed the paper in his printing-office in Third street, between Chestnut and Walnut streets. That was in 1855 and 1866. Mr. Wattcrson changed his drink and resumed his reminiscences: "The hardest work I ever did," said he, "was two months for $10 a week and two months for !fU5 a week. That four months' work, however,- ultimately netted me $16,000. It was light after the War, and I was employed us editorial writer for the Nashville Manner, which had been completely prostrated by the War. I put in the hardest work I ever did in those four mouths and built the paper up. In recognition of my services I was presented with a one-fourth interest in the paper, which I afterward sold for $16,000."— PhUtuMphia Des- Jeweled. Wreath. A story is published in London to the efl'ect that there is a splendid jeweled wreath now in tho possession of a New York jeweler which once belonged to the Princess Eugenie. It appears that the wreath was ordered from a Parisian jeweler by (]\a empress a few days before the battle of Sedan. The empress took it with her to Chiselhurst, but after the death of the prince imperial in KnluJand she returned it to the jeweler, receiving from him ,tho price she had paid for it, namely, 1,000,000 francs, or f 200,000. It was afterward purchased as a souvenir, by a Boniipartist, who, however, resold it to tho Now York ji-weliHt. Tho wruath contains 2,000 brilliants, all finely cut and mounted in old silver lined with gold. The central brilliant, which is not in a bouquet of violets, weighs 111- toon caratH. Tho other atones weigh from one to eight carats, and are environed by leaves of tho same Napoleonic emblem. A new revolver has been patented which is expected to be IMS liable to be accidentally discharged than any of its predecessors.

Three Peculiarities Hood's SAmparllla, the great blood purifier and regulating medicine, la charaoUrlMd by three peculiarities, namely: 1st: 2d 3di Tbe combination of the various remedial agents used. The proportion In which the roots, • herbs, barks, etc.. are mixed. The process by which the active medicinal properties are secured. The result Is a medicine ot untunM strength and curative power, which effects cures heretofore unequalled. These peculiarities belong exclusively to Hood'* 8ai»aparUla, and Ire Unknown to Others $ Hood's Barsaparilla Is prepared with the greatest skill and care, by pharmacists ot education and long experience. Hence It Is a medicine worthy of entire confidence. If you safer from scrofula, salt rheum, or any disease of the blood, dyspepsia, biliousness, sick headache, or kidney and liver complaints, catarrh or rheumatism, do not fall to try Hood's Sarsaparilla "I recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla to all my friends as the best blood purifier on earth." Wit. GATF, druggist, Hamilton, 0. " Hood's SarsapariUa has eared me of scrofulous humor, and done me worlds of good otherwise." C. A. ARNOLD, Arnold, Me.

IOO Doaea One Dollar. Ears and Scalp Covered with Eo- zematotu Scabs and Sores Cared by Catlcara. •M"i little son, aged elrht years, nns been at • •U*. dieted with Eczema of tha scalp, and at times a groat portion of the body, ever since be was two years old. It began in bis eara, and extended to his scalp t whicb became cov- ered.with scabs and sores, and from which a sticky fluid poured out, causing intense itching and distress, And leavlnr his hair mattou and lifeless! Underneath these scabs the skin was raw, like a piece of beefsteak. Gradually, the hair oame out and was destroyed, until but a small patch was left at tho back of the head. My friends in Peabodv know how my little boy has suffered. At night he would scratch his bead until his pillow was covered with, blood. I used to tie his hands behind him, and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching: but it was no use, he would scratch. I took him to the hospital and to the best physicians In Peabody without success. About this time, some frlands, who bad been cured by the Outlcura Remedies, prevailed upon me to try them. 1 began to USB them on the 15th of January last. In seven months every particle o( the disease was removed. Not a spot or scab remains on his scalp to tell the story of bis suffering. His hair cos returned, and is thick and strong, and bis soalp as sweet and clean as any child's in tbe world. I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for this wonderful cure by the Outlcurn Remedies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement is true and without exaggeration. CHARLES AloKAY, Oct. 6,1885. PeaboOy.Uass. I have seen Mr. McKay's boy when badly affected with the Eczema. Ho was a pitiful sight to look at. I know that b« has tried our best physicians, and did all a father could do for a suffering child, but availed nothing. Iknowth'it tbe statements be has made you as regards the curing ot his boy by your Untlcura Remedies are true in every particular. WILLIAM J MCCARTHY, 83 Foster street, f eabody, Mass. I do not know of any Instance in wbich the Outicnra Remedies have failed to produce satisfactory results. I believe I have cold more of them than of any other skin remedies I bave ever bandied during thirty-three years of my experience as a druggist. L P. TBYONi UatavlB, N. Y. Sold everywhere.
