INTERESTING RELICS

The "Old South Church" in Newburyport, Mass., is a place of great interest from its relics and reminiscences.
The celebrated clergyman, George Whitefield, died there, and was buried under its pulpit. The vault is annually visited by hundreds, though little remains of him. A handful of dust in the bottom of the coffin and a few bones, are all earthly of one who moved the world by his eloquence and fiery zeal, who crossed and re-crossed the ocean, spoke to the largest audiences ever gathered by a Protestant minister, and is said to have preached 18,000 sermons.

The arm bone was once stolen from the coffin and carried to England where it remained 30 years before it was returned by the repentant thief. The pulpit still contains, in a good state of preservation, the old Bible, printed 150 years ago, from which Whitefield preached with a fervid eloquence that touched all hearts.

STUNG ALMOST TO DEATH

Meriden, Conn., Aug. 1--- With a large swarm of bees covering his head and neck, Tinus Birdsley, a prominent and much respected resident of this city, rushed madly through his grounds today and fell exhausted at his doorstep.

He had been showing some boys how to hive a swarm of bees. Mr. Birdsley is 72 years old. He prides himself on being able to accomplish as big a day's work as his hired men, however, when the bees were discovered he laughed at the idea of allowing anyone else to hive them.

He refused to protect his hands and face, and the entire swarm, without warning, fell from the branch onto his shoulders. After scores of stings he called for help and ran towards his house. His hired men overtook him just as he fell, and beat off the swarming insects. His neck and face are badly swollen. He is in critical condition.

The Troy Herald (Mo.) July 23, 1873 Pg3

In digging a well in White Plains, Nevada, recently, a stream of water of boiling heat was reached at a depth of 82 feet.
This is probably the first artificial well of boiling water ever made.


A Knoxville, Tenn., baby, less than 2 years old, recently threw an ale bottle at his nurse's head with such force and accuracy of aim as to fracture her skull, causing a fatal result.


A Baptist clergyman out west undertook to baptize his wife at an unseasonable hour. He kept her head under water too long, and now he has to be hung up to dry in consequence.

HOODOOS IN A MATTRESS

An old southern negro was almost frightened to paleness yesterday afternoon when he saw taken from one old mattress 13 feather "hoodoos," which he declared are made by the "voodoo" doctors."

They were obtained by cleaning a feather bed at the Nicholas Mattress factory at 4228 Easton avenue. A "hoodoo" is a charm designed expressly for the harm of the finder, according to negro tradition. The "hoodoos" in question can bring only death.

The "voodoo" alone knows how they are compounded, but superstition and credulity are as one in affirming this to be the gruesome recipe: The eyetooth of a catfish, the eyebrows of a cat, jay feathers, moccasin oil and the breast feathers of the rare logcock. The jay feathers are the basis for the old plantation couplet: "Blue jay, blue jay, don't sit so gay, the devil get you some Friday."

For the real southern negro is wedded to the belief that every blue jay visits the father, Satan, on fish day. The cat must have committed suicide, for even the mightiest "voodoo" dare not slay the creature which is endowed with such vitality.
It is a noteworthy coincidence that the mattress containing the 13 hoodoos is the property of a family of 13 members.

BARRELED LIVE PORK

A Portsmouth man lost his pig from its sty in a mysterious way the other day. A vigorous search of the neighborhood did not reveal its whereabouts.

Two days later, as the sad owner was standing by the deserted pen, meditating upon his loss, he cast his eyes toward a barrel that stood on end within a few feet of the enclosure, and noticed something feebly beckoning him to approach. He looked again, 'twas a pig's tail.

He walked along quickly and looked into the barrel, and there was piggy, with scarcely a breath of life left in him. The pig had evidently fallen into the barrel when he jumped from the pen, and had stood on his head for two days and nights, while his owner was hunting all over the city to find him.

CANOE OF ANCIENT MAKE

While engaged in clearing out a deep bog in Somersetshire, England, a workman unearthed a canoe which probably belonged to some ancient lake dweller.
The boat, which is of oak, is in a fairly good state of preservation, and measures 20 feet 6 inches in length and 2 feet 10 inches in width, and in appearance is somewhat like a modern punt.
