FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 21. A Witness Agatnst heb. MoTHEB.?The police of Nashville, Tenn., have, apparent? ly, traced the murder of the old man, J. L. Howard, who was found dead under the railroad trestle on Tuesday morning, to three women. They are now in jail, sur? rounded by an almost perfect chain of cir? cumstantial evidence connecting them with the crime. Their names are Bettie Black, Annie Wright and Loa Wilson. There is evidence that Howard was at their house, on Spruce street, early in the night, and he is believed to have returned and charged them with robbing bim. Tho main witness in the affair is a little six-year old daughter of Annie Wright, who tells the story. She says that her mother hit the man in the head with an axe, and the other women at? tacked him, and beat him with rocks till he was dead. Then her mother took bim by tbe bead, another girl by the feet, and another by the body, and carried him away. Tn? place where Howard's body wa3 found is only a block and a...

Saturday evening, octobee 22. Rattlesnake Poison.?Tho reptile division of the Smithsonian Institution have commenced a series of experiments designed to discover a chemical antidote for rattlcsnako poison. It is anthoritively stated that whisky will not bo one of the antidotes upon which experiments will be made. Four largo and belligerent rattlesnakes have been received from the Blue Ridge Mount? ains of Virginia, and a number of rabbits and pigeons are in cages and pens awaiting martyr? dom in tho cause of science. Tho method of ec curing tho venom from the snakes is simple, though probably a trifle wearisome to the snakes as well as dangerous to the investigator. A snake is seized just behind tho head, and when suffi? ciently excitod a small piece of raw cotton is pushed into his mouth, aud into this his snake ship strikes his fangs to bis heart's content. The venom, an odorless, amber-colored fluid, is ab? sorbed by the cotton, which is afterward soaked in glycerine, and in this...

There was about him n suggestion ot Henry Bergh gone to seed. His coat tails hung listlessly around his long legs, and his pickerel shaped nose was buried in an old book which he was reading.
