A Hortlble Spectacle that White Men Are Barely Allowed to Witness—Orgies Which Kxclte the Members of the Mo- qnl Natives to a State of Frenzy. The snake dances of the Moqui Indiana have been frequently written about, but usually simply on hearsay evidence. It is seldom that any white man is allowed to be present at these ceremonies. A scout attached to the force at Fort Wingate, N, M., however, was so fortunate as to be in one of the Indian villages, and to witness the preliminary dance. What he saw is described in this letter sent from the fort: The participants were composed of two bodies of men, thirty-six of whom danced with the snakes, and a smaller number who formed a chorus of singing men. These latter were the first to come upon the scone, and were dressed in bright colored embroidered kilts, sashes, anklets and beautifully tanned yellow foxskins hanging down behind the body. They bore small rattles iu one hand, while in the other was held a stick, to which w*s fastened a couple of turkey feathers This stick, they claim, carries the necessary protection of one's life and lets the snake's tutelary god know that none of his progeny will be injured or carried to remote lands. These men made four or five circuits of the small plaza and then took up a position to the west side of it. In the center of the plaza was a cottonwood shed. After they had arranged themselves properly, in a state of extraordinary exaltation, the suake men came marching in to bouui across the mesa with a single stride. These dancing men, like their predecessors, made four circuits around a large rock which stands in the center of the place. They then faced the choruS and a song was gone through with. After this ceremony the snake men were divided into groups of three, and one from each three went into the cottonwood shed and extracted a snake from pne of the logs, and after putting it into his mouth and firmly fixing it there with his teeth, he started on his round. A DJSaUSTtNQ SCENE. His companion, with his arm around his neck, kept the tail of the snake in position with his left hand, while with his right, in which he carried a stick with two long feathers attached, he kept the serpent from becoming entangled in the hair of the dancer. The snake, after being carried around the circle, was thrown from the mouth, when the third member of the group gathered it up and carried it for the rest of the dance. At times the serpents would try to make their escape and would make a dash for liberty through the crowds which surrounded the dancers, and the spectators would scatter in all directions until the snakes were recaptured by the dancers and carried back into the circle and more securely held. The visits to the shed were continued until at least 150 snakes had been broxight from the inclosure, and all appeared to be in excellent condition, judging from the manner in which they resisted capture after they had been dropped from the mouth. Two or three instances were noticed of large bull snakes being held by the neck and twining their bodies around the legs of the dancers. In one instance the snake had so entwined himself around the performer that he was unable to move for fear of falling. This predicament caused a great outburst of laughter, but it looked anything but funny to the dancer. Those who danced with the snakes not unfrequently had three or four in the mouth at the same time, which, of all the performance, was the most repulsive. To see these naked human beings going around with the face completely hidden behind a mask of twisting and squirming snakes was enough to make the stoutest hearted man shudder with disgust, yet the other members of the tribe greeted these manifestations svith applause. SNAKES CHEWED IN HALVES. The applause of the spectators urged the dancers to greater feats, and as the dance proceeded the performance became most horrible to behold. Some of the dancers would take two large rattlers in the mouth at the same time, and as they slowly swung around the circle would chew on the living snakes until, in some instances, the serpents would fall to the ground completely bitten in two. One dancer, who appeared to be a leader, at one time had six serpents in his mouth, and the swinging ends of the reptiles made a gorgori appearance of his head as he whirled around the outer edge of the circle. This ceremony lasted two hours, and when the dance was over the participants were thoroughly exhausted. While during the dance they had been upheld by the ecstatic condition, the reaction was terrible, and while there was no permanent injury to the dancers, it took several days for them to recuperate. This time was spent in sleeping aud drinking a weak sort of broth made from, the dead snakes which had perished in the ceremony. During this dance there is a peculiar luster of the body and eyes which would indicate that the performers had been medicated and prepared for the ordeal through which they were about to pass. It was supposed by some that the rattlesnakes had been rendered harmless by the extraction of their fangs, but to show that such was not the case a dog was b.vought into the circle aud was bitten by a snake. In a very short time the unfortunate animal was dead from tke efe'jts of the bite.—San Francisco Chronicle. The Market Dull. De Broker—Why is it that the stock market is so fearfully dull?

In tfiplstle from Jay Gould WrltMft Nearly Forty Tears Ago. About forty years ago the staid inhabitants of central New York took a great liking to an active young surveyor who lived in Roxbury, a small town in Delaware county. He arose early in the morning and tramped over the hills and vales adjacent to where he lived. With his surveying instruments he took measurements, made maps and found a ready sale for the product of his activity and brain. Although he was a small youth he had a vigorous way about him that pleased the slow going farmers and delighted even the loungers about the postoffica und grocery combined, to whom he gave "talks" on Saturday evenings. When he left the township and moved away for good the local prophets saw great things in store for him, und predicted that some day he might hava been a selectman of the village if he had remained, but they forgot him for years and only recalled his presence when hia identity with Jay Gould, tho famous financier, was proved to their astonishment. Robert Pullerton keeps an "old curiosity shop" on Third avenue near Eighteenth street, where almost any queer odd sort of thing can be discovered. Among the treasures shown a reporter was a letter written in 1854 by this same young surveyor, who could now doubtless cash in his assets for a round $100,000,000, if he felt so disposed. In spito of the fact that Mr. Gould spelled "trespass," "barometrical" and "damage" in a unique way and scattered capital letters to suit himself, the letter looks thoroughly businesslike, and it may be presumed that Judge Sherman loaned tl» "level" he possessed, and that it was returned to him in proper condition. The fact that even as a young man he was "connected" with the Newburg and Syracuse railroad showed his early longing for the business in which he has made himself known all over the world. "It's curious," said Mr. Pullerton, "but you will notice that he was not only connected with one road, but he could not rest until he had examined another route through West Settlement and Puses Brook. That he did things thoroughly is evident. The handwriting is none of your offhand affairs, but one can see the exactness with which every "t" is crossed and the care with which, after the letter is written, words were inserted to allow of no mistake. The politeness and anxiety in the last paragraph of the letter proper are also apparent, such as an enthusiastic boy could not fall to put in, knowing that a person of Judge Sherman's position would ^e accustomed to respect as a judge. "He was also careful to add 'judge' at the beginning, so as to give the recipient the thrill of pleasure popularly supposed to mildly shock every person with a handle to his name. A postscript always adds to the effect of a letter, for a man who might throw away a begging epistle cannot resist glancing at a postscript, and the offer of pay for the nse of the instrument finished the note. "He had evidently not intended to offer any money at first, but the thought of a possible refusal and the need of another appeal probably settled the matter. It could do no harm, anyway."—New York World. they Could Count on Him. A lot of young traveling men temporarily located at a cozy Wisconsin hotel Sunday got up a conspiracy against the landlord. Everything about the hotel was perfection itself. The cookery WM superb, the service first class, the appointments of the hostelry all that could be desired, and the charges reasonable, but these wild young men, in secret conclave assembled, resolved to make the proprietor's life miserable for one day by kicking individually and collectively against everything. Before they proceeded to carry the plot into execution the ringleader of the conspirators decided to take into their confidence n young man of imposing exterior and much gripsack, who had just arrived and was in the act of registering. "You're a traveling man, aren't you?" he asked in a low tone. "Yes." "Well, there's about a dozen of nu here, and we're putting up a job on the landlord. We are going to kick at every blessed thing today— coffee, steak, biscuit, pastry, fruits, vegetables, waiters, scenery, rooms, general accommodations and all. We'll be glad to have you take a hand in it, if you are in for a little fun." "If I'm in for a little fun!" echoed the new arrival. "Thunder! I'm traveling for a London in N'Yawk. Tribune. house, with headquarters I always kick."—Chicago How the Parrot Was Reformed. The wickedness a canal parrot is ignorant of is not worth learning. Not many canal parrots reform; but one did. His cage hung in front of a canal store; and as a consequence the bird could swear in a manner to make an ordinary parrot's feathers stand up with horror. And as swearing is—or used to be—the chief part of a canal driver's language, nobody could tell whether the parrot or a driver was talking. One day a boat stopped at the store and the entire crew, including the driver, went into the building and staid a long time. This was the parrot's opportunity. The tired horses were left unattended; so he proceeded to attend to them. "Back!" he commanded, with much swearing. The horses promptly obeyed the familiar order. "Back!" he screamed again, much encouraged. They obeyed again, and yet again. And he kept on swearing and yelling "Back!" until at last the horses tumbled into the canal and were drowned. The parrot laughed a little, but not much, over the success of his efforts. And it was noticed that he never swore after that melancholy affair. The reason was that the driver wrung his neck.—Brooklyn Life. LONG LIFE Is possible only when the blood is pure and vigorous. To expel Scrof. ula and other poisons from the circulation, the superior medicine is AYEfc'S Sarsaparilla. It imparts permanent strength and efficiency to every organ of the body, Restoration to perfect health and strength Results from Using AYER'S Sarsaparilla. Mary Schubert, Kansas City, Ks., writes: " I am convinced that niter having boon sick a whole year from liver complaint, Ayer's Sarsaparilla saved my life. The best physicians being unable to help me, and having tried three other proprietary medicines without benefit, I at last took Ayer's Sarsaparilla. The result was a complete cure.

Mr. James Ricalton, writing of the wonderful old ruins of monuments and shrines at Annradhapura, the City of the Sacred Bo-Tree in Ceylon, says: "From the days of the mound builders down to the Eiffel tower man has shown himself to bs a monument erecting being; the Christians have their cathedrals, the Mohammedans have their mosques and the Buddhists have their shrine tombs, designated differently in different countries as pagoda, tope and dagoba. "The pagodas of China are entirely dissimilar to those of Burmah, and the dagobas of Cuylon are quite unlike those in either country; yet all serve the one purpose of relic sepulture. They are not altogether a thing of the past; they are Btill erected near the temples, but those of modern construction are small and unimportant when compared with those that have withstood biennial monsoons for 2,000 years; even their half buried ruins are stupendous." They Worship tbo Drum* Among the Samoiedes and the tribes of northern Asiatic Russia the drum passes almost to an idol. They address it, erect it in their hut, and the priests of the superstition by the aid of the divine instrument effect that magical 'disappearance" which has puzzled all ravelers from Sir Hugh Willoughby lownward to account for, and has given rise to as much guesswork at its elucidation as the feats of the Indian Buglers. The Samoiede, after beating bia drum and working up the senses of hia spectators to a pitch of great excitement, mysteriously vanishes into thin air before the eyes of all. Civilized travelers naturally hold that it is a trick. The Samoiedes themselves declare that the power resides in the drum idol. The peculiar thing is that neither one party nor the other has been abje to explain how tho vanishing occurs.— Chambers' Journal. Remarkable Story of a Stowaway. The London Lancet records a remarkable case, which illustrates what human beings are driven to do when suffering the agonies of starvation. The body of an Arab was found in the hold of a ship, and was conveyed to the Seamen's hospital, Greenwich, where a post mortem examination was made by order of the coroner. The body was much emaciated, and the following extraordinary list of materials was found in the intestines: Twenty trousers buttons, three cogwheels apparently out of a watch, one 2-inch steel screw bent double, one 1-inch screw, six pieces of a lock, the biggest being 14 inches long and one-half inch broad; a circular piece of brass, several pieces of iron wire, brass, lead, and two key tallies on a ring one inch in length. The weight of the articles amounted to almost half a pound. The unfortunate man had evidently secreted himself in the vessel, and had remained undiscovered by the crew during the whole of the voyage from some distant port, and had swallowed these articles to relieve the pangs of hunger. Peculiar Recesses la English Churches. There is an item that is rarely met with that would be, probably, a puzzle to most perrons who looked at it without a key of explanation as to its .use. This is a tall, long, narrow recess in the wall, low down toward the ground, near the altar. It is supposed to be intended for the reception of a processional staff, too long to be placed with other treasures in the aumbrey or elsewhere. Another square recess has been observed, in a few instances, near the ground, to the east of the piscina, the use of which has not been handed down. There are at least three churches, too, that have a peculiar niche or recess, partaking somewhat of the character of two piscina, one above the other, the meaning of which has also passed out of knowledge. These churches are at Southwick, in Sussex, and Burston and Bletchingley, in Surrey.—Gentleman's Magazine. IOWA ROUTE CEDAR RAP!OS to the work.
