"If you haven't pot a heavy overcoat, you needn't worry about it for si.N weeks yet," said an observant Ornnjre county man recentl}', "because you won't, strike any weather that'll call for it. Not this winter. How do 1 know? Uy tho infallible evidence oi hog- milt Now, mind you! I never knew what the milt of thchojr was for, unless' it, was for prophesying- winter weather. For fifty years I had known that it did that, but oucc I said to myself: 'There must be some other use for it. I'll look it up,' so I took down iny dictionary. I fonrjd out a whole lot about milt. Tho principal duty of milt, according 1 to the dictionary, is this: '.Milt,' says the dictionary, 'a vis- cus situated iu the left hypocb.ondrium, under the diaphragm; see melt,' I saw melt, and it said 'see milt.' so, having seen milt previously, I didn't call on it a<r:iin, but went to bed satisfied that milt was just a weather prognosticate^ and that was enouffh for me. "So.yon may take it for dead fact what I toll you, and count on it. When I killed my pigs this fall, ] directed ray attention as usual to a spot under the diaphragm of the most projfnostic- looking pig- I had, and removed the viscus from its left hypochondrium. If you don't know much about pijfs, I'll tell you now that the left hypochon- drinm of a pig don't loom up very big :is a choice cut if you're looking for pork'to roast, and, if you want pork chops, shun the diaphragm. But this is simply advisory. "Having taken out the viscus and satisfied myself that it was milt all right, I went for it in its unfailing capacity as weather prophet. As soon as I read it I said to my wife: "'Jane,'said I, 'there isn't much ice in the icehouse, and we'll have to go a little slow on it, for we'll have use for it, and we won't get any ice to replenish with before along in the latter part of February.' " 'Miltsay so?" returned Jane.. "'That's what the milt says!,' Ire- plied. " 'Then there isn't any hurry about putting the weather strips on,' said Jane.' " 'Not a bit,' said I. "'And I needn't take my furs out of the camphor,' said she. " 'Take 'em out'. 1 ' said I. 'Great Scott, no! Leave 'em in! There's likely to be a new crop of moths before winter sets in.' "Simply to show you, my boy, what faith I have in the prophesying of the hog milt. This is the way to read it: A hog's milt is several inches long, and it has a big end and a small end. When you look at it after you've killed yonr hog in the fall, just notice if the big cud of it, or the little end of it, or the middle of it, is.bigger than it ought to be. One or the other of 'em is sure to be abnormal. If it's the big end. R-et things ready for the comins'in of an early winter, and for it's coming iu stiff and to make things, to crack.

''That's the way the hog- milt oasts the meteorolog-ieal horoscope. I have looked it over for this winter, and I want to tell yon that tho small end of the milt had a knob on it like a prize rutabaga. So you can take my word for it and wear your spring* overooat until nearly spring;, and then put it by and take down your winter ulster.

The hig-best intelligence in the people is represented in the witch doctor, who is the repository for knosvledg-e of all kinds. They also have very extraordinary ability in occult tricks, including- feats of levitation. Mr. Kuno saw something remarkable in this line. A young- boy -was broug-ht to him for treatment, complaining 1 of a general debility. He could find nothing- the matter with him, and he finally went to the villag-e witch doctor. The latter called the people tog-ether and went through various incantations and processes to secure his cure. Tho only remarkable one was this: He sat down on the ground and placing- the flat side of his forearm upwards put on it a round piece of lead ta.pering- to a point on top, like a carpenter's plummet. In this little peak was a bright red parrot's feather. After the ball had rested there a minute it suddenly began to move upwards on the inclined plane of the arm with tho wabbling motion of a "dying" top. It passed up the forearm and the steep incline of the upper arm almost to the shoulder, when the witch doctor threw it off and went into convulsions. The man was practically naked and sat so near Mr. Kuno that he could have reached o-st and touched him. Mr. Kuno asked the man if he would show him how to do that and he said ho would if he would come out into the woods with him. Mr. Kuno preferred, however, not to go out into the woods with him. There was too much competition in this medicine business to take little trips into lonely spots with such people. Another strange trick Mr. Kuno saw in the trial of a woman for unchastity. The 'test is to put the woman under the influence of a drug- and pass a white hot iron over the flesh of the arm. If a mark is loft the person is guilty. In this case Mr. Kuno saw the medicine roan heat the knife to a white heat and pass it flatways three times down the whole le/igth of the bare arm and yet not a mark was to be seen. Jlr. Kuno accounts for both these tricks by the wholesale hypnotism of the ii.udicuee, but, of course, that is only theory. liut in any case the medicine men are verj- intelligent persons. In medicine, for example, they have extraordinary powers, one disease at,- least being known which they can treat with success when our doctors have found no sure cure for it. They use herbs entirely, and make splendid lotions, Mr. Kuuo having a sand blindness, which followed tl-.c Zambesi fever, cured by a native doctor after all other means had failed. They ure also very successful in Such operations as removing tapeworms. In the small-pox a.nd African aries returned home, and lie is personally convinced that African fever was among- their bag-gage. The African disease, he says, the doctors know- nothing about, and he thinks wo treat the g'rip too mildly, being- too much afraid of quinine. The dose for African fever in the medical books is two grains at a time, but in Africa the old hands take as much as one hundred and twenty grains at a crisis, putting- it down literally in handfuls. lie himself has taken so much that it has permanently affected his hearing, a continuous buzzing going on in his head like a spluttering telephone. But worst ol all, when that disease or any other peculiar to Africa gees into your blood, you can't get it out any way, no matter how big your doses.—Springfield Republican. MAKING USE OF A TOUT. Definition Which Sli.-J» Sonic Light on Kairllsh Sport's ld«» of Honor. In Baily's Magazine there is a curious account of the introduction of racing touts, who, apparently, are much moro respectable than they used to be. As a boy 1 frequented sporting circles to some extent, and remember that theso gentry wore hay bands rouud their ankles more often than g-aiters, writes James Payn, the novelist, in the London Illustrated News. Moreover, they were in the habit of being grievoirsly molested in the pursuit of their profession. On llsley Downs on a "trial" morning, before the horses were brought out, men with horsewhips used to explore tho patches of furze that offered the only cover, and when they came upon a tout (lying on his stomach with opera glasses in hand) they let him have it. He had, however, his patrons even then. I have seen him welcomed {when he brought news with him) in establishments to which you would have thought a person of his appearance could never have obtained access. I remember as a schoolboy being- much impressed by an interview to which I was witness when a guest at a countrj' house, between my host, a gentleman of great position, and one of these outcast-looking individuals. It disclosed to my innocent nature quite a vista of turf immorality. The man had brought news that Concertina (first favorite for the Oaks) had broken down in her gallop. My host gave him some cherry brandy and a sovereign. Later on a Capt. Conway called, a greatsport- ing friend of -my host. On account of my youth my presence was not objected to, and I 'naturally listened to the conversation. I heard my host skillfully turn it on the Oaks, which necessarily involved Concertina. The captain "fancied" her, and my host indulged him by making- a large bet against her at a trifle over the current odds. This conduct struck me as rather queer, and when the visitor had g-oue I said so. I have since often thought it was rather a cheeky thing in a schoolboy to venture upon a lesson in morality, but ray host put me quite at ease so far as that wont. "Took advantage of him? Whv, of course I took advantage of him. What is the use of one's keeping- a tout if one does not utilize his early information?"

There are spaces in the vicinity of fos:- sipnals where there is no sound of •warning heard, although there is constantly sounded the note of danger. Accidents have happened to vessels- in this way that are accounted for only by the theory that there is an area over which sound passes without producing any effect. In one case a steamer ran aground about one and a half miles from a fojr-sienal that was in full play. Notwithstanding 1;he short distance, no sound was heard, while at points five or six miles away the sifrnals were distinctly audible. Another steamer ran aground only an eighth of a mile from a sig-nal that was sounding loudly. Experiments have been made for th* purpose of locating- these silent points, aod their where:a- abouts has been accurately determined. One theory of the cause of this silent area is, that the sound, coming- in contact with, some current of air or electric strata, is thrown upward out of a level course, and proceeds over' the heads of the sailors.—iC. Y. Ledger. —In matter nature allows no atom to elude its grasp: in mind, no thou^'lt or feelinp- to perish.

There are some exceeding-ly peculiar diseases which are developed in Africa, the most horrible in appearance being- the elephantiasis, a form of drops}', in which a limb swells up to be as larg-e as the body, the flesh becoming- soft and spongy and the member practically useless. Another still stranger is the sleeping disease, which is thought to be first contracted by the eating- of improperly prepared men- dioca. It is this trouble which carried off so many of Stanley's men, and although eminent European specialists have studied it carefully it is as yet very imperfectly understood. The victim at first becomes abnormally dull and sleepy, and then is troubled with sudden dozing- spells which, recurring- with greater and greater frequency and lasting- for long-er and longer periods, finally end in the victim's sleeeping- to death'. Apparently there is no cure for this when once contracted. Mr. Kuno tells of a case where he stood by a friend when he sent a negro boy across a village yard, only » few hundred feet wide. When the boy reached the center he stopped suddenly and sat down. "Look at that boy," said Mr. Kuno. "Poor fellow,'' said his friend, "he can't help it; he has the sleeping- disease." Mr. Kuno went over and shook the man violently, but could make no impression. Twenty minutes later the man pot up, shook himself and proceeded on his journey as if nothing had happened. ' It Is the African fever, however, that can be relied upon to do the real drudgery in, the way of the necessary thinning 1 out of the human race. It i* really a cross between malaria and influenza, and it carries off more men in twenty-four hours than anything else "there is. Your liead splits, you shiver a.nd roast by turns, and when it is throug-b. with you, you are so weak that you g-enerally die as a matter of preference. The doctors claim that you can't have it in a temperature less than 52 degrees, but Mr. Kuno savs he knows better. He has had it this week. Moreover, he goes further, and advances a new theory fo; scientific consideration. The grip, he says, as far as he can learn, is nothing more than the African fever in a mild form. What is more, the disease started a few years, ago, jtut after a lot of .African'mis«io&'. Jforcl Uo-rlce That rromlrt«» to the Expenditure of Cont. \Vherc was American ingenuity that it should have left to the French so valuable a.u invention as the new air or wind prows which are being- placed upon locomotives in southern Europe? It has long been recojynizcc! that even on a calm day the pressure upon an engine g-oing- at speed is equal to a heavj" gale—that is to say, enormous. When running against a strong wind the pressure may even be doubled. The average increase in the expenditure of coal is estijTiatcd n.t one-sixth (some authorities put it higher) over the amount which would be required to propel the train in a vacuum. To sa've some portion at least of this wasted energy, inclined planes in the form of the sharp prow of a ship have been fastened upon the front of the locomotive. Instead of meeting the body of air with a flat surface the vast and swiftly moving mass cuts its way through, throwing the air off on either side as the water is flun^ from the bows of an Atlantic liner. The device seems a very simple one, but it is proved that it saves a large percentage of coaL In some experiments it was shown that the air pressure was reduced one-half. I It now remains for some acute American to invent some process of doing away with the other half as well. produces the above rcMiltx in 30 liny*. It «ctl powerfully and quickly.
