A fanperate fiprbt bet eea a bm arA
a shark occurred n-cenJj i Manuk.iu
Liwbor. Mr. Henry Jaobin, who is
employed at tlie North ilamkau Ile.t.;
as beacon light keeper, was out in his
boat about six miles down the harbor
when it was Ptruck by a squall ami
swaAipcd and the occupant left in the
water. Jacobson divel and endeavored
to relieve the ballast, but ilhout suc
cess. He then grasped an oa , and being
a good swimmer struck out for hind;
but as a strong tide was running he wjis
swept down the harbor a distance of
three miles. At that poii t he was at
tacked by a large shark, which grabbed
at his hand. He protected himself, how
ever, with the oar, which he tried to ram
down the shark's throat.
The fish then made a circle around
him, and renewed the attack. By this
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.
Klectrlcity from Coal.
A French chemist, who has 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 nec
essary metallic elements for furnishing
the current. These elements are in
sulated by asbeetus, and the cooling is
effected partly by the shape 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 Btoring 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 Brala Jar or the Military Step.
Dr. Colin, regimental physician in the
French army, has published the result
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
shock 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 one day march, he says, this
shock is repeated 40,000 times, and often
the strongest men, who can walk the
same distance without difficulty when
not iu line, 6uccumb to the strain in two
or three days. Dr. Colin's preventive is
a rubber heel iall military boots. This
heel has been tried at his instance in the
French infantry, he says, and the result
has been found to be a great relief to
the soldiers. The experiments with the
rubber heel are still in progress. Medi
A 3?ule Incident.
A characteristic incident occurred
yesterday afternoon in connection with
Isaac Cochran's sale of horses at the
Eacle hottl. A pair of mules were

to let the people see how nicely they can

they t.early ran into a colored man, who,
trying to get away, fell into the water
trough. Then they displayed their speed
ly running off out East Gay street,
throwing their driver, Harry Cochran,
out and badly breaking the wagon.
They were caught out near the nurseries.
The mules were not sold that day.

A Belle Marries a Brave.
Honey C. Holt, a full blood Winne

Sliss Maud C. Williams, of New Boston,
Ills. The couple met and loved while
he was traveling with a number of his
tribe advertising a patent medicine. He
is not a bad looking young man, aas a
magnificent physique and is fairly well
educated. The bride is a very pretty
young lady, and was quite a belle in her
neighborhood. She could have selected
a husband from among a dozen thrifty
young farmers, but preferred to become
the wife of the red man, who, she 6ays,
has not a single bad habit. The couple
left to join the band at Abington, Ills.

Lobster Story from Maine.
Lobsters are going into the freak busi

At the Derlin exhibition of metam and
sontrivftnoea for the prevention of acci
dents 1n industries and otherwise, prizee
were a witnled for the tuUowinff proc
etaea for fireproofing, respectively dimin
ishing th combustibility of tissues, cur
tain materials and theatrical scenery.
For light tissues, sixteen pounds ammo
uium sulphates, five pounds ammonium
carbonate, four pounds borax, six lounds
boric acid, four jounds starch, or one
Iotind dextrine, or one pound gelatine,
and twenty-five gallons water, mixed to
gether, heated to K6 degs. Fahrenheit,
and the material impregnated with the
mixture, centrifugated and dried, and
then ironed as usual. Ono quart of the
mixture, costing about three or four
cents, is enough to impregnate fifteen
yards of material.
For curtain materials, theatrical deco
rations, wood nd furniture thirty
pounds ammonium chloride are mixed
with so much floated chalk as to give
the mass consistency. It is then heated
to 135 to 150 degs. Fahrenheit, and the
material given one or two coats of it by
means of a brush. A pound of it, cost
ing about eight-tenths of a cent, is suffi
cient to cover five square rods. Berlin
A Terrible Thing In at 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 featuro 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 exploitive
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 nt
the hull of the ship, and lodges with!',
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 Kill 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 $20i
fine. lie 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 him 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
and let the man get out and earn his own
living. The trial judge and the attorney
general and the members of the jury all
appeared on the petition sent up in ac
cordance with the resolution, but not a
6ingle friend of the prisoner was among
the signers. Nashville American.
Made Her Left Handed by a RIow.
Three years ago a young lady of Fall
River, Mass., was hit upon the left side
of her head by a falling sign as she was
walking along a street in Boston. This
was followed hy brain fever. After
some weeks she was as well in mind and
body as ever, but from a right handed
person she had become so left handed
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 6trange is that, with so 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 bora left handed. Bos
A Greedy Mountain Lion's Fate.
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 small 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 yearshereafter, there will
be the greatest famine the world has
ever known. During that 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 veTnin, and the living will suf
fer untold tortures.
