But he does not think harm could come of such collision, the material of the eotnet beinjf so light, unless tho carbonic acid gas of which it is probably composed should poison our atmosphere. But, anyway, he says we may look for a magnificent shower of meteors 00 that date. FOUGHT A DUEL WITH A BOA. Th« Runli Winter of nn Engineer Which Nearly Cont Him HI» Life. A Newark (N. J.) engineer who served on the engineering corps employed in the construction of tin; Nicaragua canal, and was home on a, sort of a furlough, recently told ;i, story of a duel with a boa constrictor bv it fellow engineer. Life in the canal country is dreary, und various schemes are resorted to in ordur to relievo the monotony. One of the party stated one evening that he con hi kill ;> boa single-handed. Tho rest of the crowd tried to convince him that ho was wrong, but ho (stuck to tin- assertion. Filially, a handsome lx;t was made' that he could not dispatch a boa alone if the deadly reptile was in ils natural condition. Tho young engineer promptly accepted the terms of the wager. The next day a g:ing of natives were sent iuto the forest to find a boa. They continued their search for some time und finally came upon just tlie article they were looking for. It was a well-grown specimen of tlie boa species, fully fifteen foot loim 1 . It had eaten heartily a few du.ys before it was discovered, and was therefore torpid. It was captured without difficulty ami taken buck to camp. It, was deposited in h, room, where it was securely bound and left until its islu«p w:is over. Tlie young engineer who WHS to meet Hie iimlulous monster of the forest in a duel to the death repented of li.is rash bargain many times, but lie never let anyone know it and was "dead game," ;is the saying goes, from first to last. lioas I often remain in torpor for thrco weeks, ] and il was nearly a fortnight before tho pinioned .snake showed signs of returning activity. The engineers then appointed a night for this combat, and the young man who was to face tho serpent went into active training. It had been stipulated that his only weapon was to be a knife, and the young 1 man relied on his clear .brain, iron nerve and supple wrist to carry him through the encounter in safety. When work was over on the appointed day those who were in the secret entered the room and proceeded to Cut the ropes with which the serpent was bound. It had been coiled up and several bands placed about it. These were all severed but one, and tlie snake's opponent entered while his companionsbeata hasty retreat to safe coigns of vantage from which to watch the strange battle and give succor in a last extremity. Tho young engineer was Iightl3 r clad un<l carried in liis right hand a long knife, highly ground and sharpened. The monster, half famished as it was, was in a most angry humor, and its horrid head oscillating to and fro with distended jaws and viciously shining, beady eyes must have made the young man's flesh creep. De strode straight up to the boa, and with a lightning stroke of his knife cut the remaining band that bound it. lie jumped back the instant the stroke had fallen with the celerity of a tiger cat, but his swiftness was snail! ike compared with ithat of tho serpent. Quicker than thought the boa descended upon his enemy. Before tho mnn could move the snake had fallen upon his arm, had wound its way up its entire length and was biting at his shoulder. The arm around which the snake had wound itself was tlie young fellow's knife arm. Luckily tho hand and wrist were free. He did not wait to transfer to his other hand, but summoned all his power and cut at the coil of the serpent nearest his pinioned hand. Itwasu splendid stroke, .a backward cut, and it was clean through the body. The upper portion of the slimy coil dropped to the floor and the intrepid engineer had won his bet. The entire contest lasted but a few seconds und so quickly did it pass that the* breathless onlookers scarcely realized what had happened. The jounjf man was pretty thoroughly exhausted. His shoulder was quite badly lacerated by tho teeth of the snake. The strangest part of the episode was that the young man's arm was lame for weeks and all its length w.3fijusuiral black and blue where the snalio had Dispatch. encircled it.—Pittsburgh Lucquor Work In Japan. Japanese lacquer is a ready-made product of nature, being prepared from tht> sap of tho lacquer tree, which, when hardened, is of mirror-like smoothness, unaffected by cither :icids or hot water. It is of great durability, never splitting or cracking. This industrial importance of lacquer work i.s far above its art value in J;ipan, where it is employed for an inlinite variety of uses, oven fov Mich objects as acid tanks, ship heels and photographic tablets, not to spoil; of the objects of domestic use. The nnif[ue i superiority of Japanese h-uM-jner work is due not only to the special merit of the material, but also to the care and skill shown by Japanese in tho manipulation of the material. The art lacquer of Japan is essentially)nilivuluul. It is riot merely hric-ii-hrau. There is as wide a distinction between the ordinary lacquer tniy or cabimM of commerce sii)d the exquisite l.-ics by the great Japanese artists as lu'Uvivn a street p'suturd and auanvasnf Raphael.

Dinliei aud Flatter* of Gold. Queen Victoria's wonderful set of table furniture is kept in two fireproof chambers and is said to represent a cash value of twenty million pounds. Among it is the golden table service made for George IV., calculated for one hundred and thirty guests and containing the famous crystal champagne cooler, which is large enougli for a bath tub. There are many pieces in it that formerly belonged to Queen Elizabeth, besides splendid solid gold vessels from India, Siatn and China.
