HORSES IN HISTORY-.
A Vaw at Thaw That naa Kern Mads
Readers of Macaulay will remember
the famous black Auster, the horse of
Herminlus, and the dark gray charger
of Mamlllus, whose sudden appearance
In the city of Tusculum without his
master brought tha news of the defeat
of the allies at Lake Reglllus. Con
nected with that battle, too, were tha
horses of the great "twin brethren."
Castor and Pollux, coal black, with
white legs and tails. But those are
legendary. Not so, however, the well
known horse of Caligula, Incltattts.
Thla animal had a stable of marble;
his stall was of Ivory, his clothing of
purple, and his halters stiff with gems.
He had a set of golden plates, and was
presented with a palace, furniture and
slaves complete, in order that guests
invited in his name should be proper
ly entertained. His diet was the most
costly that could be Imagined, the
finest grapes that Asia could provide
being reserved for him.
Verus, another Roman emperor
about a century later, treated his horse
almost aa extravagantly. He fed him
with raisins and almonds with his own
hands, and when ha died, erected a
statue of gold to him. while all the dig
nitaries of the empire attended the fun
eral. As we come to later times, so
Wa get more examples of favorite hors
es. WJJIJam the Conqueror had one
that he roO at the battle of Hastings,
about which almost everything seems
to be khbwh except his name. He
tfas of huge sire and was a present
from King Alfonso of Spain "such a
girt as a prince might give and a prince
receive." This gallant horse, however,
did not survive the battle, for Qyrth,
Harold's butcher, "clove him with a
bill, and he died. Richard I.'s horsa
was called Maleck, and was jet black.
He bore his master through the holy
war and arrived In England before
him; In fact, he survived tha king
several years. The second Richard,
too. bad a favorite horse, called Roan
Barbery, which was supposed to be
the finest horsa In Europe at that time,
and It was on Roan Barbary that the
young king was mounted when the In
cident wherein Wat Tyler was stabbed
by the mayor of Walworth took place.
About n century later we get to the
Wars of the Roses, and In the many
battles of that civil disturbance two
horses played Important parts. These
belonged to the great Earl of Warwick,
the kingmaker. His first was Maleck.
a beautiful gra. which he rede at the
battle of Towton. It was this horse
whose death turned the fortunes of the
battle, for Warwick, seeing that his
men were giving ground deliberately
sprung from his favorite horse and
killed him. Then hla men knew that
the kingmaker was prepared to con
quer, but not to fly. They rallied and
finally won the battle.--Lbndon Stan

One of the largest estates In Presqne
Isle. Minn., belongs to the heirs of
Ellas Dudley, an old-time merchant of
the town, whose prosperity was' largely
due to the fact that he once ordered a
vice president of the United States out
of his store. Dudley was an old school
Quaker who cams here from Pennsyl
vania years ago and carried on a small
trade In buying fura from the French
Canadian squatters. He sold a few
standard groceries and kept socks,
mittens, and cheap clothing. Though
he could have made himself rich In a
short time by selling liquor and tobac
co,' his conscience would not allow him
tojkeep either. So firm was he In his
principles that he would allow no one
to use tobacco' In his store. In the
summer of 18(4 Hannibal Hamlin of
Bangor, who was then vice president
came up here to enjoy a week's fishing
In .Squaw Pan lake, and called at Dud
lejfg store to, purchase the needful sup
plies for.bis outing.' While waiting for
his goods to be put Up. Mr. Hamlin
lighted a cigar aad walked up and
down the floor. Dudley, who was In
ihe back store, detected the odor of
tobacco, and came out In a towering
rage. "Mr. Hamlin," said he. "get out
of my store at once. Nobody la allow,
ed to smoke here. If President Lin
coln or Queen "Victoria should come
into my store smoking I'd drive, them
out the same way I do you. Go' now,
and never darken my doors again with
the smell of tobacco about yon." Mr.
Hamlin threw away his cigar and apol
ogized. After that he told the story
to his aequalntaacea as a good Joke on
himself, acu before anybody in Presque
Isle was aware of this fact old man
Dudley was famous. Tha prohibition
ists took him up and petted him. and
nominated him for congress. Mean
time the anglers of New England, be
lieving that Mr, Hamlin knew all the
places where flsh would bite, flocked
here by the stage load, and every one
of them fltted oat at Dudley's store.

The daring feat of Lieut Hobson has
recalled to the minds of Americans two
similar individual deeds of desperate
bravery which occurrred during our
war with Tripoli.
It is hardly creditable that this coun
try once paid large sums to the pirat
ical Barbary states for leave to navi
gate the seas without assault During
the administrations of Washifigton And
Adams tbe ships of our navy were sev
eral times employed in carrying silver
coin by the barrel to the Dey of Algiers
and tbe Bashaw of Tripoli.
By command of the dey the Ameri
can flag was hauled down from the
mast of the George Washington, and
his own flag hoisted In its place, and
the country suffered, for a long time
without protest, similar Indignities
from the bashaw. At last the insolence
could be tolerated no longer, and war
The next year the frigate Philadel
phia struck a rock in tbe harbor of
Tripoli, and was seized by the enemy,
the officers were thrown into prison
and the crew of three hundred men re
duced to slavery. The Turks raised
tbe vessel, and began to refit her for
Lieut Decatur, in a little vessel
named the Intrepid, with a half-dozen
daring young fellows crept Into the
harbor at nightfall and made fast to
the Philadelphia under pretense of
wanting anchorage. As they grappled
the huge ship the Turks leaped to their
arms, but the Americans were already
on board. They drove the crew over
tbe side, heaped combustibles In the
hold, set fire to them, and escaped In
their little boat to the war frigate
waiting for them while the Philadel
phia burned to the water's edge.
Six months later the harbor of Trip
oli was blockaded by Commodore
Preble. Lieut. Richard Somen and
eleven men voluntered to fit up the
Intrepid as a fire-ship, to take her In
to the harbor and explode her In the
midst of the Turkish fleet to de
Twenty thousand pounds of powder
and two hundred shells were packed
in her hold, and a slow fuse attached.
On a dark night Lieut Somers sailed
with her towards the Turkish squad
roc; but she was seen, struck by a
bomb, and set on fire. She exploded
and sank, doing no damage to the en
emy. Richard Somers and all of his
crew were lost.
But when we talk of the brave deeds
of today which are successful, let us
not forget these American' boys who
long ago gave their lives for their
country in vain.
The (Sensia Sohtlsr.
"We. had lots of trouble," said the J
major, "In the early days of
the civil war. but I cannot remem
ber a single case of sleep on guard of
our brigade in tbe later years of the
war. One night when we were camp
ing, at Ganley bridge Col. Frlzell, com
ing down from Hawk's Nest to con
sult with Gen. Cox. found the sentinel
on duty in front of the headquarters
asleep. The guard, a grim-Iooklag
German, was leaning against the fence
post on the top step of the stile or
crossing, and was fast asleep. The
Colonel, coming from the front, was
much provoked at this unsoldierly
conduct and proceeded to take the gun
from the sleeping man.
"As the gun was fairly in the "Colo

Aa Aaasjataa Drill.
Duriag the early years of the century
the military life of Canada gave a wide
smargla for originality In uniform, ac
cottrement aad deportment At a ml
litia drill what In New England was
known as "tralnln day-' three or four
hnfidred men, wearing uniforms which
were not uniform, would be scattered
in a fashion more picturesque than tac
tical. The author of "Humors of '37"
thus describes the scene:
Among the few mounted ones.known
as lancers, were seen fishing poles on
wtiose ends were lashed butcherknlves.
In. the ranks of the Infantry shirt
sleeves were prominent, an occasional
ly aa umbrella might be discovered, or
a walking stick, doing duty for a gun.
'Gentlemen with tbe umbrellas.take
ground to the right." called out a cap
tain giving the word of command;
"gentlemen with the walking sticks,
take ground to the left"
"You gentlemen with the guns, ram
rods, horsewhips, walking canes and
umbrellas, and them that hasn't any,
get together right here!" shouted a
captain, vainly trying to call his com
pany from watching a game of cards.
When the game had been finished, the
captain, who had consulted bis band
book of Instructions, said politely:
"Now, gentlemen, I am going to car
ry ycu through tbe revolution of the
manual exercise. Ill be short as pos
sible, and if I should go wrong I hope
one of you gentlemen will put me
"Take aim! Ram down cartridge
no, no, fire! firing comes next Gen
tlemen, with your permission, I'll read
the words of command that will save
time. Handle cartridge! Pretty well,
considering you done it wrong end
foremost Draw rammer! Charge
"That can't be right, captain. How
can we charge bayonets without our
guns?" shouted several men.
"I beg your pardon, gentlemen. I've
turned over two leaves at once. Ad
vance arms! Now, gentlemen, we
come to the revolutions. Tention to
the who:e. To the left, no that is
the left I mean the right left wheel
He was obeyed some wheeling to
the right, others to the left, and some
' "Halt let's try again ! 'Tention ! by
divisions to the right, wheel, march!"
They did, and It seemed as if bedlam
bad broken loose. Every man took
the command. "Not so fast on the
right!" "Haul down those umbrellas!"
"Faster on the left keep back In the
middle!" "Don't crowd so!" "I've
lost my shoe!" and then all was con
fusion, amid the fifteen guns, ten ram
reds, and twenty-two horsewhlps.canes
and umbrellas. The captain dismissed
Terrible Coast Defease Gaa.
With tbe exception of the ponderous
18-inch gun nbw In course of construc
tion at WatervIIet arsenal, the largest
of our great coast-defense guns, as
adopted by the army, is thirty-two feet
In length and weighs 127,680 pounds,
says Godey's. With a charge of 480
pounds of powder, producing upon ex
plosion a pressure of 32,000 pounds to
the square inch, this gun can hurl a
steel projectile of 1,000 pounds weight
a distance of ten miles. This huge
mass of finest forged steel leaves the
gun at a velocity of 2,100 feet a sec
ond, and at a range of three or four
miles could pass completely through
a battleship, to say nothing of tbe de
struction it could produce at ranges ot
from five to seven or eight miles.
Naval vessels are as nothing to a
modern coast-defense fortification. The
limit of thickness for protective armor
-for the warship has been reached; for
land-defense protection is unlimited,
accuracy and range greater, and re
sults, complete destruction. At a
range of from five to eight miles the
destruction that would be wrought by
a steel shell filled with eighty pounds
"of high explosives and fired from one
of these guns upon striking a vessel is
beyond conception. As to tbe accur
acy ot these heavy guns, an example
'may be given where, at some recent
firings, tbe projectiles passed consec
utively through the same hole made
by the first projectile upon impact
with the target, at a range of about
These guns are mounted generally
upon the United States disappearing
carriage, invented by two army offi
cers, which hv considered superior to
any carriage adopted abroad and holds
the record of the world for speed or
firing. With a 10-inch gun mounted
on one of these carriages, requiring the
handling of 250 pounds of powder and
an 800-pound projectile for each round,
a record of ten rounds in fourteen min
utes and forty-two seconds was made.
These guns are also steel-hooped and
requires tbe same accuracy of manu
facture as the 8, 10 and 12-inch cannon.
For offensive purposes the navy ves
sel is of vital Importance, but for the
purpose of defense, to repel a bombard
ment or put to utter destruction an
invading fleet these coast-defense gun7
are vastly superior.
The Bfawswr Cartridge.
The cartridge used in the Mauser ri
fles of SpanlEb soldiers are often deadly
in cases where the wound they inflict
is trifling, but when the bullet lodges

possible to use a plain leaden bullet
in the modern rifle, owing to tbe vel
ocity at which the same is propelled
through the barrel. The lead would
melt aad stick to the surface. Conse
quently the lead is incased in a shell
of harder metal, usually brass. All
civilized nations except Spain have
made it aa Invariable rule to nickel
plate this brass shell, as unless this Is
done the brass Is at oace attacked by
the juices of the body, corrodes, and
causes blood poisoaiag to set Jn. But
Spain, has omitted to nickel-plate its
bullets, and It on that account being

There were 42,120 applications for
patents filed in the U. S. Patent office
during the year ending June 30, '98,
and 22,731 patents granted during tbe
same time. This indicates that nearly
half of the applications filed have been
rejected. Possibly many of the sub
jects of the applications were not pat
entable inventions. But it is more
probable that many of the applications
were not properly prepared and pros
ecuted. Many that were finally reject
ed by the Primary Examiners
would possibly have been allowed '..pon
appeal to the Board-of-Examlnes-in-chief.
But to file an appeal ji S10

error. Costs do not follow suit In the
series of tribunals through which an
application for a patent may be fully
adjudiated and therefore many appli

causes undoubtedly contribute to pro

number of applications for patents and
