A. British Officer's Invention.
Captain Wilson, R. N., of the torpedo
instruction ship Vernon, has invented
an appliance for cutting through the tor
pedo nets with which modern warships
protect themselves from torpedo attacks.
The experiments already made prove to
the fullest extent the tremendous power
of the new invention, which has fully
realized all its originator claimed for it.
The inventor of the torpedo net ridiculed
the idea of any instrument being able to
cut through his tough 6teel wire net
ting. But the trial just made has proved
the emptiness of his boast.'
The great momentum of the White
head torpedo, armed with Captain Wil
son's new torpedo cutters, enabled it to
cut its way through any torpedo net,
even when the latter was set an angle of
45 degs., without apparent retardation
of its flight. The cutter consists of
blades arranged scissor fashion, which
sever the wire meshes of the net, mak
ing an aperture sufficient for the en
trance of the torpedo. Electricity.
A Unique Theater.
A stock company in Vienna is about
to begin building a unique theater in
one of the recently annexed districts.
The cost is to be $230,000 or $300,000.
The roof is to be a great rolling iron cur
tain, after the style of iron curtains now
used before shop windows, and on hot
summer nights it is to be drawn aside so
that the audience may be refreshed.
With that arrangement the company
expects to be able to carry out ils plan
to give performance every evening in
the year, or 422 performances annually,
including matinees. The theater will
accommodate i'.WO persons, and the
highest price for a place outside of the
boxes is to be only forty cents, although
the heaviest classical plaj-s and the
works of the best modern dramatists
are to be produced on its stage. Archi

A Rubber Pavement.
When I was in Germany a few years
ago I was shown a street pavement that
had been laid which was made of rub
ber. It was almost noiseless, and some
went so far as to say that if it proved
successful otherwise it would do away
with vehicle springs. The only objec
tion made to the pavement was that it
was feared it would be affected by the
change of temperature. I saw a man
the other day who had recently arrived
from Germany, and he told me the pave
ment of which I have spoken has proved
to be a complete success. That it is not
changed by cold or hot weather, and
that it wears well even under the heaviest
teaming. Interview in Chicago Tribune.
A Blind Black el.
Mr. V. N. Edwards, of the United
States fish commission, has obtained
from Cnttyhunk pond a very singular
eel. The eyes are entirely concealed
under the skin and the color is uniform
ly dark, almost black. In form and
proportions it is like the common eel,
and may prove to be merely a dark col
ored blind example of this species.
Trout and other fish become dark in
color as a result of blindness, and this
may be another illustration of a phe
nomenon which is often observed by fish
cnlturists. The length of the specimen
is about thirteen inches. Forest and
Everybody Was Mad.
Nate Cook, of Brownsburg, Ind., pur
chased an old house, in which was
stored a photographer's outfit. People
curiously inclined broke into the house
and examined the pictures, but carried
nothing away. Cook was very much
incensed, and he caused the arrest of
eighteen or twenty of the very best peo
ple of Brownsburg, charging them with
trespass. The cases were afterward dis
missed, but not until all Brownsburg
was mad enough to wreak vengeance
on everybody concerned in the prosecu
tion. Philadelphia Ledger.
A Hungry Eagle.
One day last week Mr. P. C. Thorp
shot a sea gull in the harbor of South
port, N. C, but before the bird could be
secured a large bald eagle, hitherto un
noticed, swooped down and carried off
the gull, soon disappearing with it in
the direction of Fort Caswell.

"Did it ner occur toyoti," Huid a West
Point graduate and a national guards
man the other day, "what it meant to le
a jHipuliir officer in the national guard?
Something quite different, I assure you,
from lxdiii; a popular ofiiit-r in the regu
lar army. Why? Fortius reason: In
the army, if uu ofiict-r takes care of his
men, bees that they get their clothing
and pay promptly, looks out for their in
terests in case they are so unfortunate
as to be locked up in the guardhouse,
no matter how strict a disciplinarian he
may be, or how he may make the men
stand around, he will be popular with
them. But here in the guard the rela
tionship between officer and men is en
tirely changed. The rank and tile, who
are men that need no supervision of their
personal affairs, exject their officers to
be 'good fellows socially.
"An officer need not be a strict disci
plinarian to be very popular, but it is
only fair to say that the majority of na
tional guard officers, especially in some
of our crack commands, have just as
thorough an understanding of military
requirements as regular army officers.
Everything else being equal, therefore,
the popularity of the men may be com
pared as that of a man among employees
or among his club equals. 1 mention
these facts to show how easily a regular
army officer could fail to succeed in the
guard, and, vice versa, how impossible it
would be for a guard officer, whose easy
going society ways are an essential part
of his success in his rank, to make a
name for himself in the army." Brook
Pedigree of Boston's "Four Hundred."
"Every chap in Boston has been run
ning for a pedigree lately," said a good
natured son of the Emerald Isle yester
day at the North End mission, "and
some o them fellers up there on Bacon's
Hill, as have been putting their namert
in the Foor Hundred lately, ought to be
ashamed of theirselves for trying to de
save people. Sure, one of them that goes
a strutting about with his eyeglass came
from just the same stock as meself and
has nearly blinded his two eyes looking
for his same in the book of martyrs.
"His grandfather and mine came over
from the ould country in the ship Mari
anne about fifty years ago, wid the same
intention of making a home.
"Begorra, there was no aristocracy on
board the Marianne, for he washed the
dishes and me grandfather did chores
around the vessel.
"And ye should see them now. Know
me? Faith, if there wasn't anybody else
in the city to know, they wouldn't
know Tim Doherty.
"It's nothing but the ancientness of
their families you hear of these days.
But we'll all be dead some time and
then the families of all of us will lw
ancient enough to put in the Four
Hundred." Boston Herald.
Fraud Wortli More Than the Original.
The art f ratuls that have taken shape
and substance, which remain to incum
ber the world as false coin ever circulat
ing from hand to hand, are of all times
and periods. The archaeology of fraud
even has become a science; some of the
overt and acknowledged frauds them
selves have attained the status of pre
cious and coveted works, more valuable
in the strange gyrations in the wheel of
time than the originals they simulated.
Michael Angelo's marble Cupid, for in
stance, which he made in secret, broke
and mutilated, buried in a vineyard, and
dug up again himself, all for the express
"taking in" a certain cardinal, collector
of antique marbles and contemner of
modern art, is a case in point. If this
particular Cupid could now be identified
it would probably be worth more than
the most beautiful genuine antique work
of its kind which Italian soil still en
shrouds. Nineteenth Century.
Meat and Water Diet Gives Strength.
Sir Francis Head tried the diet of the
Pampas Indians, which consists of the
flesh of mares, for these savages eat
neither bread, fruit nor vegetables. He
After I had been riding three or four
months, and had lived on beef and water,
I found myself in a condition which I can
only describe by saying that I felt that no
exertion could kill me, although I con
stantly arrived so completely exhausted
that I could not speak; yet a few hours
sleep upon my saddle on the ground al
ways so completely restored me that for
a week I could daily be upon my horse
before sunrise, could ride till two or
three hours after sunset, and have really
tired ten or twelve horses a day. This
will explain the immense distances which
people in South America are said to ride,
which I am confident could only be done
on beef and water.
To Cut Glass with Shears.
A sheet of glass a window pane for
example can be cut as easily as a sheet
of cardboard. The secret consists in
keeping the glass, the shears and ' the
hands under water during the operation.
The glass can be cut in straight or
curved lines without a break or a crack.
This is because the water deadens tho
vibrations of the shears and the glass.
If the least part of the shears comes out
of the water the vibration will be
sufficient to mar the success of the
A Candid Reply.
"Now be honest," said the second
party to a horse deal, as he slipped the
halter on his exchange. "Is the animal
worth carrying home?"
"No," replied the former owner frank
ly, "he ain't, but hes worth leading
home, if you're going in that direction."
