Thousands - of  - pearls laave thus been lost in that  way, a��d they might' have been saved if the fishermen could only have  had sffltne'nieans of exaimng an ojs-  tcr c.  ISKyORE   OPENING   IT.  Wo write tho above paragraph in  tlio past tense for a very good reason. As a "matter of fact, the custom of opening every oj-ster, just to  sco wbvwt sort of a pearl is nestling  _ .within tfeo shell, is carried on at  'every pearl-fishery. In a short  while, however, tho new system will  .bo coaming in; and this consists of  It'xnmina4km by the help of the X-  'r.tys, am*'by them it. will bo possible  'to toil title ,si>e of the precious pearl  iwithout openin-c;, and thus killing the  valuable erustaceun. Jf' the rays  discover that the treasure within the  shell is yet only half grown, the living oyster will bo replaced in its  ' lodgings by tho sea, and left till its  hidden -fn-easurc has grown to its |  pi o por  si��j.  This must mean more pearls than  usual bring placed on tho market,  and their'price will come down, and  probably"' no more "corners" in  pearls  wfll bo heard of.  Now, what is possible for the X-  "oys tto- do is possible for any other  kind of rays already discovered, or  on (ho eve of discovery. For a  whilo tlroy will bo the property of  the scientists, and thoy will have only-'a scientific value on tho i.ccount;  but it is clear that sooner or k'tcr  other ruys will be found to possess  poihaps nn oven greater commercial  value   than   the  X-rn;ys.  ..X-RAYS AS DETECTIVES.  Telling criminals by their thumb-  marks is mi especially valuable adjunct to the detection of crime, but  J'ctlolet's happy discovery is some  ivhnt seuvrf ificnlly lessened rn importance by the fact that the X-ri\ys aro  now fretfiiontly employed ' y I Ho minions of the law in their hunt for  evildoers. Germany is first in tl"e  Belli  with that bright idea.  To avflid detection, thieves *.ih ���.���vc-r  the worlfl, it is wo 11 known, think  little of .swallowing precious .stones,  the more artful being able to retain  Ihciti in the huyiix. A well-dressed  man, awording to a Kieff journal,  ivus arrested in that city lhe other  "lay for personal incapabljniss- but  It turned out that he had r.eon diug-  jjod, rentlercd insensible, and t'*en  robbi'ri.  Tliu German police were so in on  tha track of the Mispocted thieves,  nnd five men were arrested tho same  aftfrncfon Nearly ��100 was found  upon them, and by means rf the X-  rays the best part of the balance was  fount!. The latter treasure consisted of diamonds, which the thieves  had swalTowod just before their capture.  Another .scientist, named Becquorcl,  has recently discovered certain rays  strung enough to be used in tha process bf letter-copying. The discovery has leapt into commercial value  ai .-.nee. In the aggregate? thou-  ,sands of valuable business hours aro  spent by eyery.'busincss house in'the  process of copying letters:* It is a  long and tedious process, as every  junior clerk knows; but with tho  Becquerel rays in use the process is  expedited, and is much cleaner,  whilst there is no fear"of a bad copy  being taken. These rays are able  | to photograph, letters in tho fraction  of a second, and nothing more-need  be done. The X-rays have been applied to 'the same purpose ,i'n insurance  offices.

It is only a question of time as to  whether tho N-rays will bo fathered  upon commerce in the same way.as  the others, it we admit the fact.- of  their discovery. Radium-rays, however, seem to be more adapted for  medical purposes. It is devoutly  hoped by many . a medical man''% in  this country that that may prove  the panacea for. two-of the greatest  scourges that afflict humanity. That  thoy havo already done some. good  in cancer is'reported from ���more than,  one hospital; whilst in a certain  painful nasal disease radium-rays  have effected a surprising cure. No  one can say with any certainty, however, whether cu-.es-by radium are  lasting. At tho best, thoy are -only  successful experiments; but the belief is universal that thoy will be  lasting remedies.���Loudon."

This  amused him so.much that lie laughed and swallowed some of the rose-,  .water through the tube, half choking  himself, this reminded him* that "the  art of smoking the native pipe" was  not to be learnt in a moment, any  more than the native fashion of sit-  ,tlng which he was practising, with  his turban on, his slippers off, and  an expression of profound gravity  upon his face. Jessie would, not  recognize her brother in this dignified young Hindoo. - ���IIovv amused  Campbell would be*! Ah, no, he remembered, Campbell, the bright boy-  ensign who- h.��d joined a few weeks  before , they came out, , ancl . whom  Philip had taken into his heart of  hearts, would never more bo amusing , or amused. Tear's filled his  eyes and he laid the pipe aside, recalling his last sight of Charlie  Campbell, cut almost in two by a  'round shot, as Lhey passed the deadly Kaiser Bagh. Then' he thought  mournfully of others, ofliccrs and  men, whom ho had seen fall in 'the  fierce rush to  the Residency.  As he was thus sadly musing and  listening to a subdued chanting,  which sounded pleasantly through  the house, a low knock was heard at  his  door.  "Como in," he said, in the faltering Hindostance, of which he- had  of course picked up a few words before his  arrival  at  Beelampore.  The door opened quickly and softly, and as quickly -find softly closed  again behind a vision that struck  him dumb .with amazement. It was  tho figure of a tall, slim Hindoo  girl, dressed .in gay hucd silk, with  a brilliant silken sari thrown-gracefully over her head and. shoulders,  and with golden ornaments upon her  round, brown arms, and, slender  ankles. Gossamjee's lesson on-Hindoo manners not having included the  etiquette proper to tho reception of  an uninvited lady in his private  apartments, Philip was embarrassed  as to what he ought to do. Tie had  only time, in his Iirst startled gaze  at her, to observe that dark as she  was her features were refined and intelligent, and that something in her  sorrowful dark eyes not only entranced him, but evoked a tumult of  memory and feeling, before he rose,  and making his newly learnt salaam,  stood with folded arms and bent  head as if awaiting commands. This  wan indeed an unexpected and agreeable excitement in the monotony of ���  his honorable captivity. A strange  combination of feelings thrilled him,  and made him wonder that the sight  of a prctly Hindoo woman should  so stir him.  "Mr.  Randal,"  said the lady,  in  low,     thrilling   voice  which set  n a  hrs  and whom he had half despised, in  spite of the spell she had cast upon  -him, with this ' stately Hindoo in  her" picturesque dross, with the look  of tragic endurance stamped upon  her face, and depths of thought and  suffering in her eyes. * The lamplight shone directly upon her, playing upon -the dark hair half concealed by the crimson and'gold sari, and  on the mournful dignity of the faco,  which looked as if the light of mirth  could never move it from its deep  sorrowful repose. ' She had developed -rapidly during the last few  months; experiences that would have  crushed some natures, had ripened  hers. ,, She had been 'called upon to*  endure physically and mentally; mind  and body had equally responded, to  the sudden strain; her stature had  increased, and tho girlish outlines of  her figure had rounded themselves to  noble proportions. Her,air and gestures were carefully -studied and  formed 'in the" Hindoo" mould; " she  dared not be herself one moment in  the house ol Gossamjee Bhose, where  her assumed character needed most  careful preservation, for ,his sake as  well as her own. But"'though "Ada  Maynard was*'so changed and developed, and partially disguised,; there  was a nameless something, tho spell  of an* ineffable charm,- which identified her with tho gay-hearted girl of  the ball-room, and thrilled Philip's  heart to its' depths. Some idea of  the difficulty and. desolation of . her  position amongst this strange,heathen people,, with their complicated  casLo prejudices, and their iron code  of female subjection and restriction  flashed upon him as ho questioned  her rapidly and incoherently, with  exclamations of wonder, sympathy,  and desire to help, scarcely knowing  what he said "in -the tumult of his  feelings, and half maddened by. his  impotence to help her, wounded, honorably imprisoned, and alone among  unknown , enemies and doubtful  friends as ho was.  ,  "Tell my brother that I am here,  alive" and safe," "she^said, at the  close.-,of the .hurried, half-whispered  interview" * .

"You will tell him my st.ory, Mr.  Randall," she- continued, "it was  for this I wished to-speak-with you,  and prevailed upon Ruksbhai to persuade Gossamjee to permit this hurried visit: He���and indeed my poor  mother and all my people���will have  heard ot the disaster at Jellapore,  and  suppose mc to  have perished."  Philip listened to this recital, his  IkwjA      tprn   fey pity,      admiration,  splendor and despotism, the whole  touched with the peculiar glamour of  tho East and the deep enchantment  of the, days of chivalry.  The magic of that rich and splendid Eastern land had scarcely affected him in the constant succession of  adventures- and dangers; he could  even look unmoved upon the grace of  tho slender symbolic palms, the very  name of which has a charm, calling  up a thousand associations. He had  Iirst .seen these "paluiB jand temples  of the south" through a medium of  bloodshed and horror, but to-night  the domes .of burning silver, tho  light soaring grace of the minarets  rising above them, tho dark, rich,  foreign foliage, and the castle on the  hillside,    all    sleeping    in the    clear  moonlight, woke in him 'a feeling,, of  beauty and romance to be remembered forever.       . *  Chunia had told him the name of  the owner of that castle, a native  nobleman neutral in the present  strife. ' "What if he should prove a  friend, 'as more than one rajah had  been to fugitive English that Bummer. ,  Gossamjee Bhose soon dissipated  that illusion; he held up ^a bamboo,  split and tied together at the ends?  "Do you see this, Randal Sahib ?"���  he asked, "whoevei leans upon the  aid of the Rajah Mohun Singh, leans  upon this bamboo;" here he cut the  binding string, while placing his  hand on the top of the cane, which  gave way in half a dozen directions  aud fell on the' floor. "Mohun Singh  would give you fair words and lodge  you in his castle one'day, and the  next ho would betray you. As the  reeds by the river side, so is he,  blown this way and_ that by all  the winds of heaven."  This description of the. rajah tallied only too well with Philip's conceptions of the native character as  formed by the experiences of fugitive  English and public' i eport and when  he looked into the keen face of ,his  host and benefactor, and 'listened to  his smooth and honeyed words, and*  observed the obsequious politeness of  his manner, being yet new to Asiatic  ways, he wondered if it' were wise to  trust Gossamjee, any'further than he  could see. him. 'He thought not, and  yet.he and-Ada Maynard were completely athis mercy.   ,   ,    A   '  Philip guarded his words and narrowly , watched Gossamjee Bhose  whenever tliey were together, ancl  sometimes at chess, which the hospi-  tablo Hindoo'played to beguile tho  timo for his wounded guest,, fancied  that he detected double meanings in  tho remarks he-made "on the game,  which always terminated in ..victory  for tho Hindoo".* " Nor did Gossam-  jeo's frcquchtVobscrvation, as he left  tho-< apartment,',,- to tho effect that  Philip was his father, and that his  houso and all, he possessed belonged  absolutely and-exclusively to Randal  Sahib, reassure him in the last degree.* Therefore he did not entrust  Ada's precious ruby' to. him, forgetting that Gossumiee had already resisted ono 'favorable opportunity of  keeping it; nor did he tell him of  the " treasure Ada .Maynard had loft  with him on her hurried visit. This  was a tracing ' on iissue paper, so  small that it could .be concealed in a  quill, of a* plan " of Lucknow, its  environs and the'various roads leading to it; which sho herself had made  from a plan found among one of the  murdered European officer's efiects  by, the ' friendly ayah, to whose, husband the "spoil had " fallen." 'This  Philip pondered over until it was  traced upon the yet -finer- tissue of  his brain. ' ' \ -  -His" wounds.-were healingjrapiSly,  and the-repose after the* tremendous  exertions of the last fevv weeks ,,-^be-:,  fore .Lucknow. was most welcome and  refreshing. Gossamjee remarked on  his improvement, but' besought him  not to leave him until he was quite  recovered;, reminding him that sick  and wounded aro more hindrance  ���than-..help,in tlio field; until' Philip  began" to wonder if he had somo sinister purpose in retaining him beneath his roof. It was true that he  need not have succored him in the  first instance, much less have taken  him to his house as he had done;,  but tho actions of natives during the'  rebellion had shown such a want of  consistency, and such a purposeless  tortuousne.ss, they had been so unsteady alike in their loyalty and  their hostility in many cases, that  it was no wonder if plain Englishmen feared to trust any "dark faces  in thoso < days.  The-weather was still very hot,  and he had found much refreshment  in sleeping in the veranda after tho  first few nights. Perhaps he had  some vacrue- notion that'he would be  better able to penetrate to tho women's apartments to help Ada, perhaps, also, he felt freer and more  capable ol" self-defence in the open  court than shut up in his room.  Ho had passed three or four days  beneath Gossamjee's roof; it was now  October, he little knew what magnificent chances of distinction he was  losing in the first terrible week after  the storming "of the English position,  lie slept tranquilly on his mat,  dreaming of the great willow by the  mill stream, tho pleasant, cool  sound of the turning mill-wheel, tho  familiar faces in the firelight, his  father and mother given back to  him, as tho dead so often arc in  dreams, and Jessio a child again,  light-hearted, spoilt, and happy. Perhaps Jessie, safe beneath Miss Blush-  ford's prim guardianship, was even  then dreaming the same dream, on  her white curtained, lavender-scented  pillow, seeing Philip again with his  manhood and his Crimean laurels  lresh upon him. Perhaps she started from her tranquil sloop, thought  of her poor boy fighting in distant  India, and said a prayer for him before turning again to her rest..  Philip's dream suddenly changed to  the dim and tumult of buttle, he was  before     Sebastopol   -u ��� it'iteer-  ing to replace some shattered gabions under heavy fire, when a musket  ball again struck him iii"tho shoulder; again he clenched his teeth with  pain, and went on adjusting the gabions with tho "uninjured arm; but  the pain of tho wound grew and grew  beyond all bearing till .with, what he  thought, a loud cry.ho.awoke.  The''.moonlight..lay upon the courtyard, a palm-tree standing motionless in the centre traced its plumed  crown blackly against the deop sky,  and cast its elongated shadow right  athwart the court towards him; another, a human shadow, tell acrosfl  his   recumbent    torm;   instead    ol a  gun-shot wound a dark, light hand  was grasping his shoulder, a _ dark  turbaned face come between him and  the moonlight, a nindoo youth was  bending over him, dimly seen against  tho strong moonlight.  "ChUnia !" he exclaimed, starting  up.  ,  "Hush I" whispered the lad, in a  voice which stirred him, "keep in  the shadow and follow me."  Ho rose without hesitation or ques-'-  tion,and catching up such clothes as  he had laid aside, followed the slim  and graceful figure, wondering if^this  might be somo fresh*"- scene from  dreamlund, or the sweet madness of  a fairy talc, and filled" with a vague  delight in the mystery, romance,  and probable danger of following his  fugitive countrywoman .in her/fresh  disguise. He was bound to be her  knight, his life was at her service; as  she explained nothinir she had doubt-  loss good * reason for her silence.  Noiselessly gliding into the shadow  sho flitted round the veranda, passing close to the sleeping forms of  Gossamjee and Chunia, cacli on his  purdah, till she. reached a door, in  tho lock of which she placed a key  which  turned without  sound. * 7  Sho relocked the door, while Philip  waited, .silent and almost breathless  in* the 'absolute darkness; then with  a whispered "Coinc," led him along  o? dark passage until they emerged  into"4 the -.narrow street of Beelampore; Ada softly locking tho last  door behind her. Then she paused a.  moment, pushing him back into the  shadow, from which ho hod incautiously escaped, placed a parcel in  hia hands, and after' listening"- intently and looking, as if in doubt,  this way and that, started again,  still barefoot and noiseless, as was  Philip.     _ ''    ,t ' '    '  Thoy, passed the bazaar, which he;  had boon ablo to watch from his window when it . was filled vvith busy,  chaffering- trade people, then an a-  musingv and picturesque scene, but  now silent as a tomb; they, passed  the Hindoo temple, recently defiled  by order ol* tho despotic moulvie, and  unmolested, save by a growl or snap  from the curs prowling the'town for  ollal, left the houses behind them.  Ada then stopped a moment to put  on her shoes, and Philip was " too  glad to follow her, example, for their  feet.were already wounded by stones,  and then,- silent and ghost-like in  their white ^drosses, by which each  could faintly -distinguish tho other  even'in the darkness, .they sped on-  waid arid "now. lifpward till 'the road  led them beneath the embattled walls  of Mehun Singh's castle."' _ "   '  "���' m  The moonlight smiled broadly-'up-  on the castle walls, showing a beau-  til ui ?,arcadc of pointed arches ^ and;!  slender pillars 'fashioned, inVthe *wall��  above, from -which, for all they  knew,' a sentry might be watching;  they crept along past the lofty wall  onj tho opposite side ih"the shadow"  cast by- some trees, - Philip all the  time, keeping one hand on the long,  slictrpj " dagger-like knife-that Gossamjee had given him with his native  dress, and remembering the dagger  Ada flashed in the lamplight" on .the  night of her visit to him..

Now, I will tell you; we have looked  into that matter pretty carefully,  and. we find that the difference in tho  feed which ,is consumed by a largo  cow and'a small one, for the production, of. a, given ^quantity of milk  or--butter', is largely in the rough  food, the cheap food, and whether a  cow be' a largo ono or a small one,  she will rcrjuirc, just about a certain  amount of concentrated feed, and that  the difference in the food which is  eaten by largo and small cows 'is in.  the cheap, rough, bulky food, and  and-'-rnot-- in tho concentrates.

" !  IIOLSTEIN CATTLE.  In the; course of an address beforo  tho ITolstein-Triesian Association of  America, Prof. H. H. Dean, of the  Ontario Agricultural College, spoke  as follows:  "First wc havo found them" (the  Holstein-Friesians) "in our experience  at the College, wheru wc keep six  or seven breeds for instructional purposes for our students, a healthy and  a thrifty breed of cattle. Wc arc  required, owing to our peculiar circumstances, to ' keep representatives  of the different broods, and we find the  Holstelns a healthy, thrifty breed,  and I consider that a very strong  point. Now, wc find that some  breeds do not scorn to have that  strong'constitution, that1 thrift, that  inherent quality which always makes  them ready for their meals, and  ready for almost .anything which may  come up; and I consider that a very  strong point', -and I believe that the  breeders*of ITolstcin cattle would be  making a most serious mistake if  they, lost sight; of that vigor and  thrift and health and constitution  which is now so important a point  among this famous breed of cattle.  "Then we find in our experience  that the calves are strong, and good  doers. I have never known ,in my  experience with them a calf to come  weak, and a calf that required nursing, and required coddling, and required any extra"attention. Without  exception thoy come strong and are  good' doers,..'; and in two or three  weeks wo can put them on skim milk  and soon begin to feed them bran and  oats, and they begin to thrive right  from the start. Now, other oalves  do not seem to thrive ir the same  way, and that is why I iff e the Hol-  stein cattle, because their ealves are  thrifty right from the start.

I always select a good, slow,  steady horse for cultivating, and go  twice in th.o row close to each hill.  I cultivate both ways so that the  work in thoroughly done. Thero 'aie  usually, no woods left, except an occasional ono rin tho hill, which is  pulled out. I,usually cultivate about  three times during tho season.

I put two reeds in  overy third hill in every'third row.  Although last  season  was  a     very  severe one, we got fairly good crops,  the  field .averaging about  C7?, bushels  of  shelled   corn   per  acre.     I  planted  about one quart of squash seed, from  which Itgot a large double box wagon, load of good sized squashes    and  pumpkins.    They wore disposed of al  a local  hotel.    Squashes were retail-  ing'/at 7'-3' .cents     per     pound,   whil(  pumpkins'- were soiling at $3 nor toi  at_the canning factory.

A man ,in buying a cow mcy ,bo  greatly deceived by a largo uddor.  A cow may have a large udder and  yet give little milk. Y cow with a.  deep, narrow udder ending in largo  teats is seldom a. good milker. Such /  an udder has coarse hair *nd abundance of it. It is but little reduced in  size by the milking process. A heavy  milker must have a large udder, but  it is rather broad than long, and to  carry it well without bruising or  chafing the hind foot should bo veil  apart. Such an udder should have  short hair and when milked should be  shrunk in size and tho skin should  hang loosely over" its surface.  The shape ancl set of tho teats is  one important consideration in buying a cow. Tho teats should be  placed well apart so that there will  bo plenty of room for tho hands of  tho milker. ��� This feature indicates  groat milking capacity. All great  milking cows have a wide spread of  teats. The shape of the teats adds  to or subtracts from the value of a  cow. An ideal shaped is long and  rather slim. Gvory one who has  milved cows knows how much short  teats increase) the labor of milking.  Thero is a class of tents I'aown  among milkers as india-rubber teats,  so that when you press on them with  the hand they give no milk or only a  small stream comes. Such cows .arc  tho dread of all dairies, and although they are often good milkers  their owners arc willing to pass them  on when a cow-buyer appears. The  heifer calves of such motners are apt  to inherit the inilking Qualities of  their mothers and it will do no harm  to veal them' by breeding from dairy  cows- with desirablo milk receptacles  and the task of milking in the future  will bo materially lightened. There  are a few cows . that milk eo easy  that they lea�� their milk and much  of it. is lost, besides giving the cow  unsightly appearanco and encouraging  a smarm of flies. This habit is apt  to bo- transmitted to thoir offspring, ..  so when you buy a cow if passible  find which' her mother was.' ''!...

SCENES        IN     THE      BRITISH
Tho King Was Asked to Withdraw
—Members Have  Been Forcibly Ejected.
What was, perhaps, the most rein aikablo "scene" enacted in the
House of Commons since tho days of
Cromwell, had its origin, curiously
enough, in a comparatively tnfling
and unimportant incident. The date
was July 27th, 1893, the hour ten
o'clock ,at night. Mr Chamberlain
was "pitching in" to Mr Gladstone,
and, just as the closuie fell, somebody
shouted out "Judas." ,
This unparliamentary epithet was
promptly icportod to the Chan man,
and he icpliod that the expression had
not reached his cars, and ordcied tho
division to be proceeded with Thereupon some few Conscr vatrves i cfuscd
to leave their seats But still theie
was no sign of any active distuiba'icc
when, suddenly, a gentleman named
Hayes-Fisher soi/ed ,a ecu tain Mr Logan by tho coat collar.
Then indeed, the "fat was in the
fire," and at once ' First one member, nnd then another, joined in the
scrimmage Tho .Ii i&hmon; tine to
tho traditions of their raco, lushed
back into tho House ""from the division lobby to "boar a hand m tho

But of all tho many minor scones
tfhat have from time to time upset
the equanimity 'of the House, tho
most curious, perhaps, was that
which had its origin, on August' oth,
1873 , in the reading of a. message
from the' Queen concerning Prince Arthur—the Duke ot-- Connaught. Th-*
Speaker, as is the custom, in such
cases, received 'the document from tho
Fume Minister, and staited reading
as follows
'Victoria Rcgina —Her Majesty being , desirous of making competent
provision for tho honorable support
of her third son. Prince Arthur, on
his coming of age, relies on the attachment of tho House of rccrs"—
here the Speaker* stopped confused,
while  r*   'oud
broke forth from the assembled Members. • ',
In tho midst of tho turmoil Gladstone rose, and tomarked confusediy\
that'a mistake had been mado "I

things a volcano ol daik supei stition
ancl savage lanaticism, which occasionally becomes active with deadly

The practice of oboah is said to
havo first arisen in Egypt, taking its
name fiom tho idol Ob. from there
it spread over the whole continent of
•Vfrica, and with the importation of
slaves from tho Guinea coast to the
West Indies was transplanted to a
soil in which il flourishes with ever-
incicasing vnulciice Tho old planters wore aware ol tho deadlj* chai-
actcr of the obcahinun, and as it was
supposed that he cun-ied his magic,
or ohenh, undei his hair all slaves
were shaved before being landed.
One of the most noted men of Jamaica, Judge Joseph Iluilburt, in
sentencing an obcahman convicted of
the poisoning of an entire family
to death rcccntlj* said . "It is mj' belief that a special statute should
be put into effect against this baleful practice. 1 do not doubt that
many men quite as dangerous as this
prisoner aro at large to-day. Oboah
is the most serious problem the modern West Indies have to face. No
man can bo said to bo safe from

Outwardly? there is nothing to distinguish the obcahman from tho ordinary villager, unless it is perhaps
his sinister look, und peculiar slouching gait. as., ('".iifrying in ono hand   a f

philtcis and charms Itjs, too, a
well-known fact that in cases of law-
suit an obcahman is iota mod 83 well
as a lavvjor Usually he  "works"
al homo on the case, but occasional-
lj he accompanies his client to coutt
loi tho purpose ot casting spells on
the piosecutor and his witnesses and
influencing the judge and jury.
The obcahman is well versed in all,
the vegetable poisons of the island,
and sometimes cultivates in some remote valley m the mountains a
patch of deadly plants. lie" knows
that the presence of vegetable poison
is much harden- to detect than that
of mineral. One of his favorite
methods of poisoning, which is diabolical in its ingenuity, is to soak
the undergarments of an intended
victim in a strong decoction of poisonous herbs. The poison is of
course' absorbed by tho perspiring
body of the owner of tho "doctored"
gaiments, and his mysterious death *
soon  follows
Equally dioaded 'with the obcah-
mon are the "Mial people," or. tiro
"fan-eyed." The mialman is believed' to injure his own ov his
clients' enemies by depriving them -
of their shadows.-- " It is believed
