AN ASTOUNDING CONJUROR!

AN ASTOUNDING CONJUROR! Galignani, a Paris paper, says that a most astound- ing Chinese conjuror, Ling Loop, is to be seen at the Hippodrome, or at the Chinese Theatre at the Exhi- bition. He swallows a sword—long as "Ie sabre, le sabre, le sabre de mon pere," or as the famed weapon which Alfred bids the knight cast into the shining levels of the Meer. What becomes of this epiglottis ? Is his jugular vein made of ces triplex, or the coat of his stomach of caoutchouc? His must indeed be dura ilia, since they take thus quietly their conversion with a sword sheath. Next he swallows eggs-after the sword an egg is a mere trifle. The shells, you will say —well, they might incommode us, but after the sword has been rammed down into his intestines by a 301b. shot, he does not stick at trifles. He smokes a cigarette, performs a variety of antics, and then, sure as eggs are eggs, he proves Buffon to be wrong, that man is oviparous, by bringing them forth unbroken from some out-of-the-way corner in his inside. The savans and doctors admit that they are mystified. They have held their inquest on Ling Loop, and can find no scientific solution of the problem, and they broke up their conclave by subscribing to the very general opinion that he is the most astounding of all possible conjurors.
