Joseph Moorehouse, of Elizabeth, N.J., died on the 4th of hydrophobia. He was bitten by a dog with which he was playing last May.
The wound was cauterized and Moorehouse thought no more about it until the day before he died, when he was attacked with spasms and died within 24 hours.

A HISTORIC FOREST

When the Duke of Monmouth was executed, in the reign of James II, for treason, the duchess ordered every oak in the park cut down on that fateful morning.
The new growth, belonging to Lord Ebury, is one of the finest forests in Britain.

RELIC HUNTERS PICK SKELETON TO PIECES

Relic hunters in East St. Louis picked to pieces the skeleton of an Indian found in a street excavation yesterday afternoon.

The skeleton was discovered by a party of laborers who were digging a trench at Lake avenue and Eleventh street for a gas main. The skeleton was found about 3 feet below the level of the street, and on either side of it were sun-baked vessels of clay.

At the head of the skeleton was a battle ax weighing 3 pounds. When the bones and the relics were taken out of the trench by the gang, which was in charge of R.H. Lawlor, foreman for the East St. Louis Gas Company, they were laid on the fresh earth beside the excavation.

The news of the finding of the skeleton was soon noised about, and in a short time a horde of relic seekers from the vicinity were attracted to the spot. Before nightfall they had carried away the bones of the departed red man. The battle ax and the clay vessels were taken to the gas company's offices by Mr. Lawlor. They will probably be donated to the museum.

TO KEEP FROM STARVING

St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 5--- John Giesen, a German, took a horse away from a crowd of boys last evening and drove it to his hut, then killed it for food.
Giesen was out of work, and with his wife and 4 children was starving to death. The horse belonged to a coal dealer, who allowed it to roam at large because it was lame.
Some boys were driving it around in the snow when Giesen seized the horse. The boys followed Giesen and saw him kill the animal, cut off the hind quarter and start to roast it.
Giesen told the policeman that he and his family had not eaten in 3 days, and hadn't had meat in over a month.

FRIDAY THE 13th

A week ago yesterday 8 marriage licenses were granted, notwithstanding it was Friday, superstitiously regarded as an unlucky day.
It was then said by one of the deputies at the recorder's office that it was the busiest Friday in marriage licenses on record. Yesterday was Friday, too, but it was also the 13th of the month. Only 2 applied for marriage licenses.

AN INDIAN BOY'S DEATH

In his childhood days, Senator Morgan of Alabama, played a great deal with the children of Cherokee braves.
While making a speech about Indians in the senate recently, he told in simple but most affecting fashion how he and Arkeeche, one of his Cherokee playmates, went blackberry picking. The Indian boy was bitten by a rattlesnake and died.
None of the Indians thought the reptile hated Arkeeche, who was bitten, they declared, because the Great Spirit wanted him.

THE FLY SPREADS TYPHOID

Lawrence, Kan.---"Typhoid fever and malaria have come to be chiefly diseases that afflict the farm and the rural community," said Professor S.J. Hunter, head of the department of entomology at the University of Kansas.

"Both diseases are carried by insects, and the way to exterminate them is to do away with the insects that spread them. The common house fly is the carrier of typhoid fever. In the cities this pest has been largely abolished by sewer systems and other modern methods of sanitation."

"The farmer has still to deal with the question, and the reason for the prevalence of typhoid on the farms is that the farmer has as yet taken no adequate means to stop the disease."

WHALE DWARFS ELEPHANT

A good many people suppose that the elephant is the largest animal, but a full grown elephant is almost a pygmy beside a whale. A big elephant weighs about 6 tons while a whale weighs sometimes 150 tons.
