Freight business on the Wabash IB good. Much livo stock and grain IB belog moved. Regular passenger service on Lake Michigan from St, Joe to Chicago in connection with the Vandalla trains opened up Monday. It is rumored that with tho change of time next Sunday the time of Pan Handle passenger trains 20 and 21 will bo shortened between New York and Chicago. J. W. Dunwoedy agent at the Eel river station on Monday went to the Wabash hospital at Peru. For some time Mr. Duuwoody has been a sufferer from rheumatism. Lake Maxlnkuckee travel on the Vand alia is already heavy. Trainmen eay that every passenger train brings in a number of people to that popular resort who are In search of pleasure or recreation. Pan Handle detective John Gallagher yesterday arrested a man at Crown Point who IB accuse d of having set fire to a shed containing hay, the C re spread ing to the railroad track and burning two box cars. General Superintendent Elliott. Superintendent Ben McKeen, Superintendent Hatch, Superintendent Miller and Trainmaster Campbell went out ou the Pooria division of the Vandalia ou an inspecting; trip yesterday. Tho city council of Torre Haute is endeavoring to have the yards of the various railroads removed outside of the corporation limits. The railroads will fight the council, claiming that the city cannot confiscate their property. Tbe wisdom of the Pennsylvania Company In securing a controlling Interest in tho Toledo, Peorla & Western, and forming a traffic alliance with the Chicago, Burlington & Qulacy, has become more evident to tho outside public, as tho traffic orig. inating through the arrangement rapidly increases from day to day, until at present the Pan Handle gets nearly as much freight at Logansport as at Chicago. Tho new route, formed aa above, is the shortest between the ^ast and West by a number of miles, and the facilities for handling freight rapidly and economically are very favorable. Last week the freight on the Toledo, Peorla & Western was so heavy that seven engines had to be borrowed to move it, the regular Shocking Outcome of tbe Profcuor'i Ex- perlmout In Natural History. A well-known professor of natural history and an amateur taxidermist, residing in a northern suburb of Chicago, was in tho city to look at some South American snakes procured for him by a local dealer in foreign animals. The reptiles, says the Tiroes-Herald, were all that tho professor desired. The purchase was made, the snakes were chloroformed and the professor placed them in a blue cloth bag he had carried with him for the purpose. He then went to the northwestern depot, took a seat in the smoker, placed the bag beside him on the seat and proceeded to enjoy a cigar and the afternoon piper. On the same train a quartette of Chicago business men usually meet lor a quiet rubber on their way to their suburban homes. They happened to have their seats on the other side of the aisle from the professor. On the opposite side facing the professor, one of. the players called the colonel had his seat. The colonel is known for his weakness for Kentucky -juice and carried his usual allowance on this occasion. The play started and so did the train. All of a sudden, as the colonel arranged his cards, he happened to look over to' the professor's seat; he was observed to start, and was evidently, disturbed about something. This was repeated several times during 1 the journey, and the colonel was playing in bad luck and had to stand the joking of his fellow pltiyers. Three of the players lind now reached their stations und said good-by to the colonel, who had a little further to travel. Suddenly a peculiar hiss wns heard. The professor started up, locked at his bap for a second and then with practiced hand caught the head of a snake protruding 1 from a bag. The colonel had bcon an interested witness of tho incident, and a feeling 1 of relief seemed to pass over his face. Turning to tho professor he said: ''So it is real live snakes. Good God, . I thought surely I had them; why in thunder do you carry such beastly vermin around with you?" The professor explained the reason and that probably one of the snakes had not been sufficiently chloroformed. The colonel has had to stand a good deal of joking since then and has been inviting his friends to his favorite dispensary. MOST SAVAGE OF SPIDERS.

In the days of tho Second empire, Baron Gros was. sent to Japan to demand the opening of certain ports to French commerce. Among the rest he named to the Japanese ministers a certain city. The Japanese functionaries smiled so broadly when he preferred tho request that the French ambassador asked them to tell him what pave them so much amusement; but instead of answering the Japanese ministers said: "We will open the port in question, my lord, if France in her turn will open a certain port to us." "What port is that?" asked the Frenchman. "The port of Liverpool." "But, your excellencies" (laughing), "Liverpool is not a French port, but u;n English one." "Yes," answered the Japanese, "and the port you named', is not in Japan, but in Korea." The French ambassador was compelled to admit that the joke was against him. Thn Tarantula Endowed nrltb Enough Cool-age to Attack Larger Enemle*. The tarantula is a large burrowing spider which dwells in a shaftlike hole it sinks in the earth, Its appearance is most repulsive, and inspires anvone who examines it with a feeling of profound disgust. As it stands, it frequently covers an area as large as the palm of a roan's hand, and over its body nnd legs there bristles a thick covering of red-brown hair. It may be said that its home is in many lands, but its greatest size is attained in tropical and semitropical countries. In the south of Europe, along the Mediterranean coast, it has been known for centuries as tho "mad spider," because the symptoms following its bite arc similar to those of hydrophobia, There the peasantry, especially those of Sicily, regard it •with mingled feelings of hato and superstitious dread. They will tell you that the only chance of recovery from its bite is for the patient to commence dancing without delay and to continue until he falls senseless from exhaustion —a remedy which, ridiculous as it seems, has something to be said in its favor, when wo know that tho one danger to overcome is the tendency to sleep, says Chambers'Journal. As long as this can be successfully avoided the patient is in no danger; but if he give way and allows himself to fall into a stupor, then ho Is likely to succumb, oven from the comparatively mild poison of the European variety. It is hi tho tropical countries of South America, however, •where all forms of insect and vegetable life attain their highest development, that this great spider is .most deadly. And further north, in the provinces of Mexico, where it is quite as numerous, its poison is only a slight degree less dangerous. There wo have met it everywhere and studied its habits. In the orange orchards, the vineyards and tho open prairies wo have watched it attack enemies many times its own size, and marveled at the case with which it overcame them. Even its own kind are not exempt from its fierce onslaught, and we remember once seeing 1 a pair of them meet on the upturned root of a fig tree and fight a duel to tho death—tho death of both. Of man it seems to have no fear whatever, and will attack without hesitation either his hand or his foot, if they come within striking- distance. In doing so it stands upon its four hind leg's. It opens wide its enormous fang-s until the mandibles protrude in a straight line from its face; then, witli all the muscular force it is capable of, launches itself forward, sinking them with a vicious thrust deep into the ficsli of the enemy. A Frlend'n Advice. MONTAGDE, Mich., Nov. 13, '93. William Wlndeokneck, a wealthy farmer of Muekegon county, personally appear before me, a Notary Public, this day, and deposes and says: "That for the paat year or so ho waa afflicted with weakness, trembling, heart failure, extreme nervouanesi, headache and general debility; that he has consulted with physicians and received no benefit, He was persuad ed by a friend to try a sample bottle of Dr. Wheeler'e Nerve Vitalfosr, and he says that the trembling and nervous faelicff was immediately stopped by its use. Afterwards he used two bottle of the same medicine and says he IB entirely cured acd free from that tremblinp sensation; his heart gives him no trouble and he sleeps well.

Rich Red In the body of an adult penon there are •boot IS pounds ol blood. The blood has as it* most important elements, small round corpuscles, rod and white, In proportion of about 300 red to 3 whito one. If the number of red corpuscles becomes diminished and the white onee increased th'e blood is impure, thin, lacking in the Detrition necessary to sustain the health •nd nerve strength of the body. Then That Tired Feeling, Nervousness, Scrofula, Salt Rheum, or others of the long train of ills, according to the temperament and disposition, attack the victim. The only permanent remedy, Js found in • reliable blood medicine like Hood's Sarsaparilla, which acts upon the red corpuscles, enriching them and increasing their number. It thus restores the vital fluid to healthy condition, expels »11 imparity, cures Nervousness, That Tired Feeling, Scrofula and all other diseases arising from or promoted by low state of the blood. That these statemoits are true we prove not by our own statements, but by what thousands of perfectly reliable people soy about Hood's Sarsfiparilla. Read the testimonial in the next column from 4 beloved clergyman. Then take " In vlexv of the benefit I have had from Hood's Sarsaparilla I wish to give the following testimonial. I have several timei been budly Poisoned With Creeping Ivy. As the old school of medicine simply tried to remove the symptoms instead of th» sources of them, much of the poison wu left in my system to appear in an itching ' humor on my body with every violent ei- ertion in warm weather. At all times thera were more or less indications of poison In ' my blood , up to s year ago last winter, when Large Sores Broke Out on my body. I then purchased n bottle of Hood's Sarsaparilla, and after using thai • and a half of another bottle, the sores and hamor disappeared. I attended the Christian Endeavor Convention in Montreal and also visited tho World's Fnir in the hottest weather o t tho summer. Vfu on the go all the time, but Had No Recurrence of the burning and itching sensation which had marred every previous summer's onting.

Very few more unpleasant predicaments can be imagined than to be aboard a runaway steamship. The steamship Marchioness, while making 1 the passage from Rothesay to Glasgow, Scotland, met with an accident to her machinery, and the engineers were unable to stop her. The boat raced ahead at terrific 'Speed, and things began to look alarming, until the captain took her out to mid-channel and steered her around in a circle. When the steam was nearly exhausted the runaway was headed for Glasgow, where she was secured by ropes, and the rest of the steam let off.
