A Terrible Thing- In Battle.
The house committee on naval affairs
for some days has had under considera
tion a bill providing for the addition to
the navy of a novel craft.
The feature of the design is found in
an enormous submarine gun carried at
the bow below the water line. The pro
jectors feel that they have now a prac
ticable means at hand to drive an enor
mous shell loaded with an explosive
charge of gunpowder or gun cotton into
the hull of any ironclad afloat and ex
plode it in the very vitals of the ship.
According to the design submitted to
the committee and explained by Gen
eral Berdan, a hydraulic buffer projects
from the bow of the vessel. This is so
adjusted that it will stop the boat a dis
tance of eight feet from the enemy's ship
without injury to the boat. At this
short range the buffer automatically dis
charges the submarine gun directly at
the hull of the ship, and lodges within
it a shell carrying a bursting charge of
450 pounds of powder, sufficient to blow
down every bulkhead in the ship and
wreck the bottom. Cincinnati Com
Glad to Get Rid of Him.
A few days ago Governor Buchanan
was called upon to exercise executive
clemency in a very peculiar case. The
person concerned was a man held in jail
at Jackson till he should produce a $200
fine. He had been there over a year
without showing any signs of liquidating
with the commonwealth, and it is.prob-
able he would have remained a prisoner
for the next fifty years if payment had
been waited for. The county court
recognizing nun as an incubus to the
amount of forty cents a day, passed a
resolution asking the governor "for the
Lord's sake" to forgive that little $200
aud let the man get out and earn his own
living. The trial judge and the attorney
general and the members of the jurj all
appeared on the petition sent up in ac
cordance with the resolution, but 'uot a
Bingle friend of the prisoner was among
the signers. Nashville American.
Made Her Left llaixlcd by a Ulow.
Three ears ago a j oung lady of Fall
River, Mass., was hit upon the left side
of her head by a falling sign as she was
walking aloug a street in Boston. Tins
was followed b' brain fever. After
some weeks she was as well in mind and
body as ever, but from a right handed
person sne nad become so lett nanaed
that she could neither cut, sew nor write
with her right hand, but found it easy
to do all these things with her left.
Her right hand was just about as useful
as her left had been before she was hurt.
What is strange is that, with bo recent
a change in the use of her hands, she
never makes an awkward motion and is
as graceful in the use of her left hand as
if she had been born left handed. Bos
A Greedy Mountain Lion's Kate.
Dr. French, a seventy-year-old resi
dent of Alamo, killed a mountain lion
one day last week at the Tule ranch in
the pineries. The lion had crawled into
a pig pen through a 6mall hole, and after
feasting on two shoats was too big to
get out through the hole. Thus he was
an easy prey to the doctor, who gave
him a hypodermic injection of birdshot
in order to see him perform. He per
formed to the entire satisfaction of his
tormentor. The doctor administered a
44-caliber pill, which put him to sleep.
The animal had immense claws, and
measured six feet from tip to tip. San
A Great Famine Predicted.
A prophet in Athens, Ga., predicts
that the crop yield this year throughout
this country will be the largest ever
known, but that beginning with 1893,
and for two years thereafter, there will
be the greatest famine the world has
ever Known, uunng mat time rain
shall cease to fall, and the streams of
the country will all dry up, vegetation
will no longer exist, and all animals
will surely die. At the beginning of the
famine the land will be infested with all
sorts of vermin, and the living will suf
fer untold tortures. v-

makes note of an immense increase m
the number of sheep in Australia in the
last two or three years, and of the enor

Man Asalnitt Shark.
A desperate fiht between a man and
a fdiark occurred recently in .MhiiuLui
harbor. Mr. Henry Jacobmm, who is
employed at the North .Manukau llrj-.d
as beacon light keeper, was out in his
boat about tix miles down the liarltnr
when it was struck by a squall a i l
swamped and the occujwint Iff t in t)i
water. Jacobson dived and endeavurc l
to relievo the ballast, but without mh -cess.
lie thfti grasped an oar, and lieiii;.;
a good swimmer struck out for land:
but as a strong tide was running he was
6wept down the harbor a distanco of
three miles. At that joint he was at
tacked by a larire shark, which grabbed
at his hand. He protected himself, how
ever, with the oar, which he tried to ran
down the shark's throat.
The fish then made a circle aronn.
him, and renewed the attack. By thi
time, however, Jacobson had his sheath
knife drawn, and desperately stabbed
the shark, ripping its side open, so that
the water became red with blood. A
further attack was made, when Jacob
son again stabbed the monster near the
tail, and it swam away. At that time a
boat came in sight, and Jacobson. ex
hausted, was hauled into the boat, hav
ing been in the water two hours and
thirty minutes. New Zealand Herald
Electricity from CoaL
A rencn cuennst. who nas been giv
ing considerable attention to the problem
of heating and lighting from a single
source, has devised a novel stove, which
in appearance resembles an ordinary
heating stove. It is so arranged inter
nally that the waste of heat is utilized
for the generation of electricity. This
is secured by a number of rectangular
boxes of sheet iron, containing the nee
essary metallic elements for furnishing
the current. These elements are in
sulated by asbestus, and the cooling is
effected partly by the shapo in which
the metallic alloys are cast and partly
by a circulation of air.
The current obtained is not great in
amount, but the result of this attempt
seems to be favorable. Accumulators
are used for storing up the electricity,
and as the heating is required for a much
longer period than for lighting, the elec
trical energy, which would be lost dur
ing the hours of daylight, is saved. A
point of considerable moment is that the
heat utilized in this way is waste heat,
so that any portion that can be recov
ered in the form of electricity is so much
gain. Philadelphia Record.
The Brain Jar of tbe Military Step.
Dr. Colin, regimental physician in the
French army, has published the results
of his investigations into the effects of
regular marching in disciplined bodies
upon soldiers. The regularity of the
step causes the indefinite repetition of a
"hock of the bones and brain, infinitely
more deleterious than an irregular walk,
and to this regular repetition of the
shock to the same parts of the body are
due the peculiar aches, pains and illness
es of the troops.
In a ono day march, ho says, this
chock i3 repeated 40,000 times, and often
the strongest men, who can walk the
same distance without difficulty when
not in line, succumb to the strain in two
or three days. Dr. Colin's preventive is
a rubber heel iall military boots. This
heel has been tried sii his instance in thr
French infantry, he says, and the result
has been found to be a great relief to
the soldiers. The experiments with the
rubler heel are still in progress. Medi
A Mule Incident.
A characteristic incident occurred
yesterday afternoon in connection with
Isaac Cochran's sale of horses at the
Eagle hotel. A pair of mules were
brought out, hitched to a wagon an!
driven by Harry Cochran. "This is a
fine pair of mules," said Auctioneer Mc
Farlan. "Just drive them up the street
to let the people see how nicely they can
travel." After going a 6hort distance
they were no longer of one mind, but
one wanted to go one way and one the
other. In their efforts to part company
they nearly ran into a colored man, who,
trying to get away, fell into the water
trough. Then they displayed their speed
by running off out East Gay street,
throwing their driver, Harry Cochrau,
out and badly breaking the wagon.
They were caught out near the nurseries.
The mules were not sold that day.
