in from the field at noon and had taken
the bridles from the horses to allow
them to go to the water tank, when one
of the animals suddenly became fright
ened at a buggy top that had been driven
into the yard and ran around the barn.
While her father went to bead the horse
off and drive it back Miss Katie took its
mate to the tank. As she was standing
there the loose horse came around the
corner of the barn and rau against her.
She was knocked down and the animal
stepped on her several times. Her right
arm was broken between the elbow and
shoulder and her nose fractured. The
horse's hoof also struck her on the back
of the head, cutting a gash several inches
long in the scalp but fortunately not in

replied that he was figuring up the num
ber of bushels of corn husked. He was
in reality writing a note, the contents of
which are very confusing. It was direct
ed to "My dear wife." He told her that
after he was dead she should move to
town and Roosevelt would care for the
children. The rest of the note was not
connected and it was directed by a wan
dering, delirious mind. It appears that
Mr. Best had a quantity of liquor on
hand of which he had partaken freely.
On looking into the bedroom soon after,
the wife saw her husband holding a shot
gun pointed toward himself. She re
treated and after he had shot holes in
three walls of the house he went out to
the barn and Mrs. Beet sent her little
girl to the Niiz farm adjoining, for help.

OXYGEN USED TO CUT STEEL.
Little or No Finishing Required After
A stream of oxygen Is the knife that
cuts metals. The operation is per
formed by means of a blowpipe with
two nozzles, of which the first delivers
an ignited jet of mixed oxygen and
hydrogen, and the second is a stream
of pure oxygen. The pressure is reg
ulated by a gauge attached to the oxy
gen tank. The oxygen hydrogen flame
and the stream of oxygen strike the
same part of the metal, which, after
being heated by the fame, is rapidly
cut, or rather burned through by the
oxygen, the temperature being raised
to 1,300 or 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit
by the combustion of the metal. The
cut is as smooth as a sheared cut and
requires little or no finishing. Armor
plates can be cut in one-twentieth the
time required for mechanical cutting;
and the sharply localized heating prob
ably causes less strain than punching
and shearing develop. If oxygen costs
two cents and hydrogen two-thirds of
a cent per cubic foot, the cost of cut
ting an Iron plate four-fifths of an inch'
thick Is about seven cents per running
foot, or about half the cost of mechan
ical cutting. Special machines are
constructed for cutting various ob
jects. Finally there Is a universal ma
chine, which can be arranged to make
curved and polygonal cuts of any pat
tern in addition to the simpler cuts
effected Lv the other machines. A
special form of this universal machine
is' exceedingly useful in taking apart
machinery and steel buildings. It op
erates by cutting off the heads of the
rivets, which are then easily driven

rapidly thaa'the'act of thumping one's

that everyone should know it, for often'
a person gets choked while eating
where there 'is no one near to .thump'
him. Very frequently at meals and
when they are at play, children get
choked while eating, and tne custom
ary manner of relieving them Is to
slap them sharply on the back. The
effect of this is to set the obstruction
free. The same thing can be brought
about by raising the left hand of the
child as high as possible and the relief
comes much more quickly. In happen
ings of this kind there should be no
alarm, for if the child sees that older
persons or parents get excited the ef
fect is bad. The best thing is to tell
the child to raise its left arm and im
