After much liti gation in the Supreme Court an ill-usod wife got a decree of divorce and about $15,000 alimony.

When she lifted the -huge striped. and spotted snakes from their boxes and coiled them round bcr neck, arms and body, often tettmjr their clammy scales press ajr:unr,t her mouth.

October 6. A remarka- ble case of religious fanaticism has just been brought to light here.

Report adds that the religious authorities have prescribed the same seeresy for the past four hundred years regarding what has happened within its walls and the character of its inmates. "The yeil, however, is at last le raoved, and citizens are lost in amazement that such scenes could for years have been enacted in a civilized land with no note of warn ing sounded.

This seemed to be the signal for a new departure, and a procession was again formed. At the bride's house few changes had boon made, but a "choree" cr marriage hall had been formed by placing at each of the four corners of a square earthenware water vessels, one above the the other, and held in position by supports of bam boo. In the center was tho sacred fire. Hardly had we arrived when cvory body took seats as before, though tho cashmere-shawled father did not appear, and tho bride and groom no longer sat opposit...

SOME CURIOUS FACTS. The Origin of Amber, Crystal and Pearls Explained by an Expert. "Amber is curious stuff," said a col lector of curios to a Washington Star reporter the other day. "It is only com paratively recently that its nature has been known, and even at this day very few people seem to have any notion as to what it is in reality. The ancients regarded it as altogether mysterious and even magical. They found that it was rendered electrical by friction so as to attract light substances, and our word 'electricity' comes from the Greek namo for amber, wnch was 'electron.' A fa vorite puzzle with them was how the insects so frequently found in amber came to be so situated. Not as a mod ern poet has phrased it: that the thing -was cither rich or rare, But how the devil did it get there? "I have myself seen a chunk of very transparent amber in which a small liz ard with five legs was encased, looking as if it mignt have been alive yesterday, though, doubtless, it had been dead for...

NUMBER 5 - if .S: . t : Kong, a Mohammedan city, far up the Akha River, which flows in to the Gulf of Guinea, had never been seen by a white man before Capt. Binger, the intrepid French explorer, entered it in February, 1888. On the coast there have been for years vague stories of Kong and j its people. Mohammedan negroes, and Capt. Binger found that these accounts had more basis than most of the reports of cities in interior Africa. In his narrative he says : Several hours before we reached Kong there were evidences that we were approaching a great center. Everj'where all the timber had been cut down, and the soil, impoverish ed by long cultivation, was barren. I saw not even a hill anywhere. The Kong Mountain chain, which appears on all the maps, exists on ly in the imagination of some in correctly informed travelers. Soon I saw rising among bombax and palm trees far ahead the minarets on the mosques and the...
