An Amateur's Experience. Kays the Springfield (III.) Register i A singular accident, which nearly resulted in the death of a young man by the name of Al. Kennedy, occurred in a sa loon in the eastern part of the city. For the amusement of a crowd nt the saloon in question, a man named Dow, a pro fessor of tho elegant art of sword swal lowing, was giving an exhibition. With the most charming grace, and to the in finite delight of those present, he passed the .-.word. B small steel instrument about eighteen inches in length, down his throat and into his stoinneh. Ken- | nedy was so charmed by the exhibition that be solicited the loan of the sword (nr the purpose of experimenting in the j same direction.

A Woman Carries a Lizard in her Stomach for Twelve Years. A most remarkable ease has been brought to light in Council Bluffs by the enterprise of the Globe man, in which a woman had n live lizard taken from her stomach after it had remained there for nearly twelve years. About eight years ago a lady," at that time about 45 years of age, emigrated from Pennsylvania to lowa, and settled in Council Bluffs. She came for her health. For several years she had been troubled with what she supposed to be indigestion, and nothing that she took nor the treatment she received seemed to do her any good or alleviate her suf fering. In fact, she grew worse, pain and suffering increasing instead of di minishing. Her physicians were unable to diag nose the disease. Some pronounced it indigestion, while others said it was n \ tumor or a cancer. Some treated her for one thing and some for another, but there was no change for tbe better—tho patient remained about the same—some times better and sometime...

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1*71.. The Muss Meeting. The committee appointed by the mass (?) meeting went up to the Dem ocratic Convention last Saturday and asked the privilege of naming tbe can didates for three of the principal offices on the ticket. The chairman of that committee, iv the course of his remarks to the Convention, said they ought to have the right to name more tban three, but they would be satisfied if granted that number. When unex pectedly usked, by Mr. Bacbmier, bow many citizens of tbe county were pres ent, ut the so called mass meeting, he was dumb and failed to answer. Tbe questioner then stated that the mass meeting wus composed of four citizens. His statement, we believe, wus not de nied. If any body has ever seen a better exhibition of pure cheek, than this of lour men, culling themselves a mass meeting, coming into a political convention und asking to name candi dates for that convention, let him step forward and carry off the waumpum belt of the big chief.

One day a party of Indians made n sudden de scent upon the station, nnd the fright ened women fled in every direction. One tall, beautiful figure shot out towards the fort with the speed of a deer.

fUsposkUMUtf of P—tor la 8«««U. Complaint* against dealers in seeds are more or less frequent every year, and are generally reasonable and just. Sometimes the seeds prove to bo worth less, because they do not germinate or the percentage of live seed is so small that the crop fails, sometimes they are not true to name or variety, and at other times they contain a large admixture of i the seeds of noxious weeds. A com plaint of the last named character c'amn under our observation rocontly, which had occasioned serious damage to tho purchaser. Tho laws in several of tho States define tho responsibility of deal- j ers in seeds in such cases, and a remedy ! consists in enforcfng their provisions against those who are nmenable for vio lations of such enactments. It is true that seedsmen themselves are sometimes imposed upon, but this does not lesson their responsibility, and if they sell seeds to farmers and gardeners that aro worth less or foul they should bo made to make ' good the loss...

The Japanese. The Japanese are a mixed race, formed mainly by tlie amalgamation of two distinct stocks; one of which, styled by Mr. Griflis, the Yamato, from a province of that name in Central Hondo, came apparently from the South, and long ltefore the Christian era, were in possession of tho Southern islands, from which they set out for the con quest of Hond, which, with Yezo, was peopled by a race contemptuously styled ebitu, or "barbarians," who had descended from the northeast of Asia, and are identified with the Amos, it rein nantof whom ure still found unmixed in Yezo, and aro occasionally to bo met! with in the capital. Mr. Oriftis gives a ; characteristic portrait of ono of these.

A Physical Phenomenon. A case has just come to light in New- ; ark, N. .1., which is in every sense of the word as singular in its character as that of R, H. Newell, of Jersey City, who has not eaten substantial food for six weeks. The ease, which is a very 1 curious though an interesting one, is engaging the attention of the medical fraternity of Newark, who seem to be very much puzzled over it. It appears that some weeks ago a lady, the wife of a well known citizen, went to [tockaway beach in company with her family to spend a pleasant day. During the down ward trip tho water was rough and the bout heaved somewhat, so much so, in deed, that the lady experienced some disagreeoble sensations, but did not be come seasick. She sought refuge from her feelings in the cabin, where the nausea gradually disappeared. Never theless, her whole system seemed to bo disturbed during the sail, and the sea breeze did not have the usual invigora ting effect. For several days after an allusion to th...
