Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - October 18, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS: SATURDAY JIOBNING. OCTOBER 18.1890. 1ARGE MEN ON PARADE, A PROCESSION OF GIANTS IN PAGEANT AT BRUSSELS. Am ItltarestlDK I>c.erlptlnn of n Very . AmuilBg Sp*et�cle Illuntriitlve nf l*op-nlkr L�gende In Belgium ~ Genuine Mountain, of Fle.h In Cn.tuniei*. For greeks the foreign renders of Brussels newspapers must have been puzzled by meeting with paragraphs �uch as "Antlgon and his wife Pallas have arrived and taken up their quartern at tho town stores," for "Goliath, his wife, Mid their son aro expected to-night, and will-lodge at tho Communal school, No, 0," and tho like. Tho fact is that a general mooting of tho giant* and other representatives of popular legends of all the towns of Belgium hud lioon arranged as ono of tho principal features ot the great national fetes, and it was certainly not tho loast interesting feat lire of them Wo had tho privilege of seeing them all -from grave to gay, from tho tallest down to tho smallest-walk together in ��� a cortego such or was never seen before, and which will not bo soon forgotten to thoso who witnessed it. Tho origin of tho giants dates, of Co_i i>, from very remote times, and the quaintest legends are attached to them Considerable expenso and troublo havo bean incurred to dress thorn well for tho solemnity, and they looked, indeed,very neat and smart. Numerous musical bands were interspersed among tho cortege, which was ushered in by gendarmes on horseback, and opened with ....... . c__ Vv,ir.^i rtmsrw.- ly until nbout 10 o'clock, when a large rattlesnake;, which was coiled up under the edge of tho wood, bit him three rimes in rapid succession on the hand and ann. Tho poor, unfortunate man was three or four miles from a habitation, and had nothing at hand to counteract the fatal poison. Snddenly, however, his eyes fell upon a familiar little vine, known as the Arizona rattlesnake vine. Ho had prospected in Arizona years ago and know of the virtues of this little fine leaved milk weed vine, hut ho had no means of making tea of it. Nevertheless ho at once, as rapidly as possible, gathered a large bunch of it, lay down under tho shade of a small oak tree and began to chew it, swallow the juice and apply tho niasccrated leaves to tho bites. He grew dizzy and faint for a while, until tho medical qualities of -the weed began to take effect. Ho continued to hrw and swallow tho antidote, and the painful effects of the poison grew gradually less. At about . o'clock ho was ble to start, for home, where he arrived with but little inconvenience. lie con tinned tho remedy, and by 10 o'clock Tuesday night was to all intents aud purposes entirely recovered.-Pomona (Cal.) Times. Into tno ark one or every kinh,' aha so on, 'and one wife,' and turning over continued, 'she was 142 cubits long and 50 wide, built entirely of Cyprus wood and pitched inside nnd out.' Foh de Lawd's sakel What a woman!' exclaimed tho old darky, glancing wondoringly over tho book at his grinning class. He pansed and pondered over tho wonderful dimensions of Noah's wifo for many minutes, and then said: Boys, we musn't doubt anythta' tho book says, but take it as the other passage fnrdor on, which says, 'We aro fearftdly and wonderfully made.'"- Pittsburg  Dispatch. Courtesy. Courtesy nevor obliges one to give up principles. Courtesy often obliges ono to alter his own methods, to remain silent, in tho faco of error, and even pos sibly to seem to hold his principles with laxity. Denominational courtesies frequently prompt a change of method in conducting a service of worship. I wss tho group of St. Michael, tho patron present ono Sunday morning iu a Metho-saint of Brussels, on horseback, followed dist church in Chicago in which a Con by the dragon, conducted by maidens, gregational minister preached. I was Tho historical carriage of the Amman of happy to notice that this minister knelt Brussels, with an escort of horsemen, in offering tho prayer. It was a fitting preceded a whole family of newly ere- recognition of tho customary postnro in Mod giants-the giants of tho future, prayer of tho brother whose pulpit he twenty small giants, eighteen caparisoned horses, the relatives of tho small giants and tho elastic giants. NOTED GIANTS. After these new fangled personages occupied, These courtesies may be carried so far lis to be a bit ridicnlons. I havo heard of | Biich an instance. Years ago a union servico of a Baptist church and of the came the genuine old Brussels giants- I Tabemaclo church of Salem, Mass., was Janneke, Mieko, Grandpapa. Grand mamma,My Uncle and tho Grand Turk. Very funny it is to see tho giants peep in at the first and second floors of tho houses which they pass, as if they were Wo find ont all family secrets. Tho people walking  underneath the giants and bearing them havo to do their task well too, for the movements of each giant must be in keeping with his character. An ogro (riant mnst movci like an ogre, and the motion of a funny giant mnst be funny. On a chariot followed little Manueken. surnamed "tho oldest burgess of Brussels." who did not seem too much fatigued from last Sunday's work, when ho served wine to tho people in tho fcamo way in which he acts every day as fountain in tho line de 1'Etnve. Mannekeu, who enjoys a yearly} income of aOllf. bequeathed to him many years ago by an old maid, which incomo serves to keep up his very varieti wardrobe (he is by turns an old nobleman, a civic guard and a burgess), bad put on his rich Louis XV costume, with the cross of St. Louis, which Lonis XV had conferred on hitn. A society bearing tho high sounding and ancient title of ."Sociote du Grand Sermcut Royal do 8t. Georges" preceded the pretty groups, "the mayor's entry into iho Tillage "tho villago wedding." and "the brin ing in of the harvest." The ancient workmen's society, tlie Companions of St. Lawrence, accompanied with becoming pride their giants Mieke and Janneke, and also the wheel of fortuno and the Moybooin, a tree which is erected every year in Brussels in commemoration of a repulse 000 years ago of the people of Ghent, who had come to at-t tuck the people of Brussels. ' FKATtJItES OF Till! MAItClt. J Xn quick succession moved now the societies of tho Humpbacks of the Anchor, tho old Guild of Fencers of St. Job, the "Cockchafer Hnnters,". with their music, and the colliers in working gear. And now came the turn of tho provincial giants nnd legends. First of them was tho famous Dondon of Mons, commemorating the triumph of Christianity. The giants of Nivolls, Argayin, his wifo, their son and tho horse CEdet had a very creditable appearance. The company of the Grand Sornieut from Hal walked beforo the giants from Graniuion'". Tho small town of Vilvord figured in the cortege with five giants and iis queer Oji Signorken, and Ath had s,'nt tiie complete biblical set, Goliath with his wife, the shepherd David and the devil. Great regrot was felt at the absence of the horse Boyaard from Tcrui'mde, but Alost, which has also a 1-oi-so l>yr.i.rd, has sent tho giants usually r.t tending ou it-Polydoor. Polydora and I'olydoor-ken. At tho request of tho organizing committee Tiirascon, in Franco, had consented to send its palladium, "La Tarasqno." once an anthropophngist mun Bter, said to have been tamed and cured of its bad habits by St. Martha, who had gone with Mary Magdalen to Tarascon to convert the people there to Christianity. Two very fierce looking giants were those from Nieuport and Husselt, the lost called "De lango man," and long indeed ho is.-Brussels Cor. London Times. V�i-y Proud. Inventors are often troublesome to lesser individuals. "How proud yon must be of your husband's invention," ,aaid some ono to the wifo of a talented mechanic, "yes, 1 suppose 1 am," was the grudging reply, "but just now 1 am only relieved at having tho thing coin pleted. For the last year 1 havo beeu occupied in picking up wheels Bud screws, scattered all over the house, and rubbing out drawings of cogs and cranks on the fly loaves of books."-Youth's Companion, _____ _ held in tho Tabernacle housoof worship. member of tho Tabernacle church offered prayer. The prayer was somewhat autobiographic: "Thou knowest that hero my father worshiped; that hero I was converted; that here 1 was bap-linptlzed, no, Lord-sprinkled." I am confident that no Baptist brother would have been offended if the Congregational brother had failed to recognize Baptist views as to baptism. Maintain your principles; neglect not your courtesies.-Cor. Chicago Advance. One Wat or Looking nt It. The British soldiers invaded Connect! cut in 1778, nnd during their march through Fairfield village amused themselves by sett ing firotoall the public nnd many private buildings', all of which wero totally destroyed. Among the former was the Congregational church, at that time even a landmark by reason of its age. Tho good people were incensed at tho proceeding, as they felt that the application of the match to churches was uncalled for; but they were powerless to prevent it. They could simply look on while the structure was consuming. In duo timo another church was built on the same site, and it was used down tlirough tho decades till early in June, 1890, when in some mysterious way it took fire and was destroyed. This circumstance, while it is a perplexing one. proves to have had one fort-nnaie phase, i. c.. it gave the society an opportunity, if there was any consolation in it, to make things even iu part as regarded tho old Bcore, nnd in this way: Somo years ago the chnrch committee were instructed to insure the church property. They did so, placing a portion of tho amount with American compenies, but tho larger share with a British company. In the insurance ad ustment tho latter company was called on to pay, which it did promptly, the sum of $1.1,000. One hundred and ten years was a long time, but the church realizing the truth of an old saying, Everything comes to them who wait," have as their reward tho consciousness of having made-iu part at least-old accounts square.-New York Tribune. A Craze for ltlncn. Men aro wearing a great many rings. It's so English, you know, aud it is no uncommon thing to count four or five handsomo rings upon tho bauds of-fault-lessly attired young men. I saw a man the oilier day who wore a diamond, emerald and ruby ring, with a second one studded with one big diamond on the third finger of his right hand, and a snake ring and a flashing sapphire on the little finger of his left. His shining patent leathers prevented one from see ing whether he wore bells on his toes. A man sat opposite me in a street car a day or two since who wore a diamond nearly if not quite ies big as fbo headlight of a locomotive, and ho constantly tapped with his gem incrusted fingers upon the seat, anil the whole place was filled with a great light, so that the eyes of all beholders were dazzled. Thumb rings aro constantly growing in favor bolh with men and women. They are supposed to be mascots and tho superstitious cultivate them. Nellie Bly, or Miss Cochrane, as she prefers to be called, wears one.-N^r York Cor. Chicago Herald. Point of Hunger In Infection. DtHeasc. Measles is most infectious in the earlier stages, nnd it is often too late to take precautions when the disease is fully developed. Scarlet fever is moBt dangerous in the convalescent stage, when tho skin is peeling, and terrible risks are often run by children being taken out and about without sufficient precautions being taken to insure tho safety of those with whom they may chance to come in contact. With whooping cough there is but little danger in the open air, unless the children are in actual contact, but great risk in being shut up in tho same atmosphere, either in a close room or a railway carriage.- Exchange. Aluminum tho Rarest Metal. Alnminmn is now the rarest metal in the world, although it is the most useful, and the earth from which it can be reduced is found nil over tho globe-in Ohio as well as far off India. Tho largest piece of aluminum in the world is the cap of the Washington monument. This weighs 100 onnces. A larger piece of tho metal has never been produced. Not many years ago a Washington chemist discovered a process for the production of the metal. He thought it was perfect, and found no difficulty in getting |T>00,000 to back him up. A huge plant was erected in Tennessee and work was commenced but no aluminum was produced. Tho professor's theory and experiments were all good enough, but they did not work upon a large scale. There have been dozens of like experiences, and thou sands of men aro today trying to discover the perfect method lhat will he commercially practicable.-New York Telegram. LIFE'S ONWAHD CURRENT.

J. M. THOMSON, Prop. Catclilng Trnlu. In Chicago. Chicago's hardest worked people are the ones living in tho suburbs. Lifo to them means just ono thing, and that is to catch a train." A man's business, n woman's shopping, patience, pleasure, prido is built up around that ono idea, and everything is sacrificed to it. Rushing down Lake street Saturday night was n short, fleshy man and a big round watermelon. The watermelon was carried by a manufactured rope harness, and the scale was about evenly balanced. Sometimes the man was a little the heaviest, and then again the watermelon would swing the man oil the ground, but both were in perfect harmony as to the one idea. Whilo the swinging motion accelerated speed it was a decidedly dangerous thoroughfare for people not governed by this axle in the wheel of life. As the watermelon and the man reached one of those magnificent Btone portals that is an index to the grandeur of the depot at the foot of Lake Btreet the train whistled. Tho entrance was narrow. There was not room for the watermelon, the man and the idea. The balance happened to be on the side of the man, he being held down by the idea. The watermelon in the air swung against the carved stone. Man, balance and idea hit tho other side. The watermelon got the worst of it. It waB a rock that most anything wonld split upon. Harmony and tho combination was broken. With a gasp and a look the man threw Uio rope harness in with the rich red lusciousness of the wrecked watermelon, gathered up his balance and idea and rushed on. The watermelon was sacrificed, but he caught his train.-Chicago Herald.

Extraordinary Deaths. Lely died of jealousy at the success of Sir Godfrey Kneller. Elphinstono died of a broken heart over the result of tho battlo of Flodden. Tho Emperor Frederick HI and his son, Maximilian I, both died from eating too heartily of melons. Nalentia, the Spanish theologian, died because he was accused by tho pope of having falsified a passage in St. Augus tine. Cheke, the great English scholar, died of grief at having been perverted from his religious belief. It is said that after Malherbe, the great French writer, had been dead over an hour that he raised tho drapery and reproved one of the watchers for using a word that was hardly puro French! Alonzo Cano, the French painter and sculptor of tho Seventeenth century, is aid to have had such a fine sense of precision and symmetry that he refused to kiss a poorly executed crucifix, even though on his deathbed.

Repaying n Joke. An incident occurred recently at the Roosevelt street ferry office which illustrates how ono man can make another's life miserable with littlo exertion. One evening the collector shoved out to a passenger thirty-two three cent pieces and one cent in exchange for a dollar, after deducting tho fare, which was three cents. Tho collector grinned nnd thought he had played a good joke on the passenger, who took the money without a protest, bnt made up his mind to get even with the joker if possible. He thought hard for three days, and at last hit on a scheme. Sharpening the IgUGrABS, ALL GRADES! end of a file he nicked one side of each | ""-*~> **�**" ^^^^ three cents. Every morning and evening in going to and from hia work he placed a three cent piece in the palm of his hand and slapped it firmly down in front of the collector.
