signed to the vaccina! ion bureau makes a

until he h:s fed well mid i ; feelit-g as though
he had at !.e-t found comfortable ;u;;r! -rs.
Then he is hauled out by his no and tail to

around hi-, loft hind ieg. This strap, at
tached to a pulley ro;o, is;;ven a strong pail

deci.led displeasure. Ih.t his struggles tire
utterly useless, for by this time a heavy band
is buckled over his nose, mid neck and fore
legs. Then he is at the mercy of the surgeon.
Hut t he latter does not vaccinate at once,

to just pierce the outer layer. Then the op

original cuts and so abrades the skin that it

"sp.-.de."' Hut the "spade" is not used at
lirst. The work begins thus: All the blood
is carefully cleaned away from the abrasion
and then n quill holding a small amount of
virus is nibbed uptin the spot. Then comes
the "spade," which holds about four times as
much virus as the ordinary quill. The virus
from tins is rubbed in carefully and then the

The Oakland real estate boom has, in a
great measure, subside;!, but the people up
there came very near going crar.y while the
thing lasted. In the height of the boom it
w:a; fashionable to sell tide lands, and very
frequciitly the lets sold were and are covered
at high tide. A stranger from the east pur
chased two fifty foot lots, without ever hav
ing seen them, and shortly- afterward he had
a chance to sell them again. Calling upon
the agents who had sold them, ho said:
"I would like to fee those lots I bought the
ether day, as I have an opportunity to sell
"Have you ever seen those lots!'" asked the
"Well," said the real estate man, "it is now
iust -:;IU. high tide. Those lots are covered
by water, and if you will come around at
exactly '5:15 they will be uncovered and you
I can see them." Los Angeles Tribune.
What the War Taught.
The idea that the southern white man
can't work the cotton Celds in person has
long since leen exploded. The southern

could stand a gi-eat deal more wind, weather,
Euu; hiiie and exposure than was popularly
believed. The Caucasian can stand as much

How Hurlars Iluvu Their Tools Made.
T. . I. Jennings, an cast side engineer mid
machinist, telis an intere .ting story about his
dealings with a burglar. He was sitting in
his of ice one day a few nionthsiigo when two
in-'ii entered with a design they wanted made
of stool. He took the job and turned it out
aceorning to order. The men came next day,
and after chatting pleasantly about the boo
dle aldermen r.tul ol In matters of 'popular
interest in the city, paid t heir bill and went
away. Several oilier designs were brought
him by the two men, and begot to know them
quite v.vll. He did not learn their business,
however, but it is such a common thing to
deal with ni'-n whom one knows only by sight
that Mr. Jennings never bothered his head
Rut he found out who the men wore after
One day they called to have him make half
a do:en eight inch steel screws. He promised
them for 5 o'clock, but the men did not come,
il-j Iid not see them the next day or the next.
On the third day one of i'inkerton's detect
ives dropped in upon him in the afternoon,
carrying a handsuchcl. lb; opened it aud
threiv a lot of curiously shaped pieces of steel
o-l the table.
"Were 1 iie.se made in your hop, lli: Jen

"Yes, that's our work."'
"Who did you make them for:'
"Inow you've gof me -it's more than I can
tell. I never h id any rea.-.o.i to inquire, and
tin men didn't bother about telling me."
"Ruv. vou are sure on made that steel work
"Yes, oh yes; I'm sun uougli of that.'"

Coming Metal for Heavy Ganii,
"Aluminum bronze" is expwted to bo the
eoniing metal for heavy -guns. In a paper
read before the Naval institute at Annapolis,
Alfred 11. Cowles will argue that guns can
be made of this alloy that will have a much
higher tensile strength and ductility than
the ihi'-st quality of mild steel forgings; that
it would be impossible to burst a gun east
from this alloy with four times the jxwder
pix'ssure now used in the "built up"' stet-i
gmi; and finally, that the plants required, for
producing aluminum bronze and cos-ting guns
therefrom would not require more than one
third as great an outlay as plants fcr the
construction of built up guns.
yir. Cowles also estimates that guns can le
cast from tdumimim bronze at 'JO per cent.
Tss eo.st than the forged guns of steel, while
CO per cent, of this cost will be capital stored
away in the metal of the gun, which metfd
can be remelted and used an mdefinite num
ber of times. Barton Transcript.
