Tho Cubans aro obliged to uso
nil Boris of things for weapons,
llilles, cartridges mid powdor tiro
brought to thorn from tho United
Btntes in littlo ships which sail
from Florida. Sometimes largo
vossoIb aro fitted out in Now York,
which, if thoy oscapo tho Spanish
war ships, bring largo quantities
of arms and ammunition to tho
Cubans. Uut tho revolutionists
aro in great need of cannon, aud,
as they cannot get tho real kind,
they mako somo out of trees. In
the interior of Calm grows a tree
which hits a winding giain, that
is, tho fibers of tho wood go round
instead of extending lengthwise.
The wood of this tree is very
tough and it is almost impossible
to Bplit it by ordinary means.
When the Cubans waut a cannon
they cut down ono of those pecu
liar trees, saw off a five-foot length,
about one foot thick, aud remove
the bark. Then thoy burn out tho
bore with red' hot crowbars or
pieces of iron pipe, aud this burn
ing increases the toughness of the
While somo of the soldiers are
burning out the bore, othors cut
green oxhido into a long strip by
commencing at the center aud cut
ting in Rpirals toward tho outer
edge, juft as an apple is peeled.
Ono ond of the rawhido strip,
which is about three inches wide,
is spiked !o tho breech of tho
wooden cannon and a lever is at
tached to tho ollior end.
Two or three stout negroes
grabp thfi arms of tho lover and
slowly turn the wooden gun. Tho
band of green hido is kept under
it stniin, aud in this way tho can
non is wrapped in one of the
toughest muterials in the world.
The first layer of hido is wound
io tho muzzle of tho gun and then
buck to tho breech, and so on,
back and forth, until a number uf
layers of rawhide aro wound on.
The gun, with its rawhide wrap
ping, is placed in a draught of
'drv, hot air and allowed to harden.
When this process is comploto tho
Cubans havo a cannon which canbe
fired 100 times before it is useless.
Tho wooden cannon shoots scrap
iron, round stones and firo hard
ened clay balls. Chicago-Record.

Important: There aro very few
'things more hurtful than common
tea. An eminent English doctor
once said: "If tho public gave up
drinking common tea, the occupa
tion of one half of our profession
would bo gono." Good tea, how
ever, is refreshing and stimulat
ing, aud in introducing this arti
cle to tho public,the ollicprs of the
Salvation Army havo taken great
puinB to secure a tea, which can
