Below you will find articles of incorp
oration and by-laws as agreed upon by
some of the interested farmers of Lan
caster county. It is now necessary to
bare twenty (20) men wiio have at least
$20,000 worth of property to insure and
to sign these articles. And at this writ
ing 1 am justified in saying that I wii1
have more men and more proporty than
the law requires by the 31st of August,
at which time there will be a meeting
for the purpose of completing the or
ganization, election of officers, at corner
11th and M Su., and at 1 p. m. Please
cat these articles out. I have submitted
these articles to the Auditor's Insurance
clerk, Mr. Wheeler, and if officially pre
sented he would accept them and au
thorize the company to do business.

INTERESTING MATTERS FOR
A New Dynamite Gun-The Practi

Manufacture of Watch
Classes The Won
der of the Cam
era. A New Dynamite Gun,
While Dr. Joel G. Justin of Syracrtie
is still bent on using shells charged
with dynamite in powder guns, and
while Mr. Louis Gathman of Chicago
is engaged on the same problem, Lieut.
James W. Graydon, formerly of the
United States navy and now president
of London, is devoting himself to the
system of propelling enormous charges
of the high explosives with a gun in
which compressed air is the motor.
The weapon is supported at the
breech end on fixed trunnions fifteen
inches in diameter, which are bored
for the passage of the compressed air.
Toward the muzzle it is carried on
movable trunnions engaged with two
forged steel arms or, Jevers. These
levers have sliding fulcra and are
actuated by a hydraulic plunger for
the purpose of elevating or depressing
the gun. The breech is closed by
means of a steel screw block with in
terrupted threads, as in heavy
ordnance. A peculiar feature of this
2un is that it can be loaded at any
degree ot elevation witiun us working
range, and its rate of discharge is
stated to be one round a minute.
Pivoted to the breech trunnions
there is a loading slide or tray tor
the reception of t he projectile. I Ins
slide, at all times when tho barrel is
elevated above the horizontal line,
rises by hydraulic pressure to receive
the projectile from a tram trolley. liy
opening a valve the slide is then made
to descend with its load, and is
brought into line with the barrel of
the gun. On each side of the barrel is
fixed a small double-acting hydraulic
cylinder, the plungers of which not on
ly control the 'movement of' the load
ing slide, but also bv their continued
action uraw tne projectile up m
barrel, where it is held. The breech-
closine block, suspended nuo76 the

breech by the crosshead of the hy
draulic plungers and locked.
It has thirty-two compressed reser
voirs, carried in four sections of eight
each, two on each side of the gun car
riage These reservoirs are each ten
inches in diameter and four feet high,
and are tested to a pressure of four
tons a square inch.
Filled with air compressed to 5,000
pounds a square inch, or about 1
340th of its original volume, the ca
pacity of each at tho working pressure
is about 17,000 cubic feet of air,
weighing 1,100 pounds in its com
pressed condition. Any number out
of the four sections may be discharged,
according to the range desired or the
weight of the projectile. The discharg
ing valves are a peculiar arrangement
of the piston type, and are packed on
the hydraulic system. The carriage
on nnrh the barrel is mounted is con
structed of steel plates, with trunnion
bearings of cast iron, secured to it by
means of turned bolts.

ment of the operation, accompanied
by a peculiar1 twist of the hand arid
an amazing- skilfulness. The sphere
ought to be produced without rents,
and in such dirn'ilfjsioilB- that it is of
the requisite thickiiess. Out of these
balls the workman cuts convex discs
of the required size: This is a delicate
operation. A "toUrnette," a kind of
compass furnished with' a diamond in
one oi its branches,' is used. 1 he dia
mond having traced the circle the
glass is struck on the interior and ex
terior sides with a stick and tne piece
is detached. The discs, which are
afterwards traced,' are obtained very
easily. They are seized by the thumb,
passed through the aperture already
made and detached by the pressure of
two fingers. An Able workman will
cut 6,0(X glasses a day.

more constantly moved and freshened,
than the air on the surface; and

An Invention to Stop Cock Crowing.
In the suburban districts of London
much annoyance has been caused, and
unneighborly squabbles induced, by
cock-crowing at untimely hours. A
correspondent says a contrivance
has been devised whereby the nuisance
complained oi may be obviated, peace
secured, and harmony restored. It is
a very simple one. Let a lath be

place of the aggressive bird, and

A New Refrigerant,
Chloride of methyl is useful as a
local refrigerator, but requires an ex
pensive apparatus to utilise it. Dr.
Kedard, of Geneva, has therefore
substituted chloride of ethyl in pro
ducing local anaesthesia by refrigera
tion. It is a colorless liquid of an
agreeable odor, and is contained in a
sealed tube of glass. When the point
of the tube is broken off with pincers,
the liquid is allowed to escape in a jet
directed on the part to be cooled.
The jet can be readily stopped by the
finger or a little wax. Eah tube
holds 10 grammes of the ethyl, a
quantity sufficient for most opera
tions. Ur. Redard has found it useful
in cases of sciatica, neuralgia, and
toothache. The new refrigerant is
likely to be serviceable in the labora
tory. If the jet be directed on a tube
containing water the latter will freeze.

The Wonders of the Camera,
Never Defore in all the history of
mankind, says Professor Flammarion,
have we had in hand the power to
penetrate so deeply in the abysses of
the infinite. Photography, with its
recent improvements, takes a fair pic
ture of every star, no matter what its
distance, and sets it down on a docu
ment which can be studied at leisure.
A star of the fifteenth, sixteenth, or
even the seventeenth magnitude, or a
sun may be separated from us by so
great a distance that its light requires
thousands, perhaps millions, of years
to reach us, notwithstanding its in
credible velocity. The unaided eye of
man would never have seen it, but the
camera collects th:s feeble light, and
after a prolonged exposure reveals its
