> WONDERFUL FORT
h AT OLD GIBRALTHR.
' BUT IT DISAPPOINTS VISITORS—FLEET
P COULD HE CRUSHED IN TEN
I Disappointment awaits the sightsee
-5 ing visitor lo the world's greatest for-
P tress. The great towering rock is cov
| ered with luxuriant vegetation; not a
I fort prominent; not a gun to be seen
P even with the most jiowerful glasses;
I no discernible ammunition magazines,
I no strongholds; only a peaceful, pros-
I parous harbor, and a sleepy, straggling
I town. Yet the opinions of the most
I eminent naval experts as to the impre-
J gnability of Gibraltar is summed up as
"An enemy's fleet could be sent to
J the bottom in ten minutes before get
k ting within five miles of Gibraltar; not
» even a torpedoboat could succeed in en
| termg the bay unobserved on the black
k e*t night."
An English paper gives a most inter
im esting 1 description of the big fort's won- :
I darful defense in time of war. It is '
• night; and the maneuvers are on.
J Swift-plying searchlights transform '■
I the bay into a sheet of shimmering sil- !
J ver upon which are seen majestic Bnt
[ ish warships, and elongated flying '
I shadows—the torpedoes. Guns answer «
j guns out of every conceivable crevice '
, and corner, blending in one deafening '
I uproar, while scores of shells plow the
I water for miles around. Sentries are (
1 everywhere; infantry parties crouch in '
I the shadows; hundreds of gunners stand 1
' ready behind hundreds of guns in these s
i mysterious labyrinths hewn out of the '
i solid rock—"the galleries," the vicious
' barking of Maxim guns gives contrast '
, to the deep-toned baying of these mam- t
moth pieces of ordnance, the mere re- '
! port of which cracks stone roofs and s
bursts doors and window in. Could r
any fleet live through the murderous
hail of gignatic shells? ,
Gibraltar never sleeps,, By day and I
night two perfectly-equipped signal sta- *
tions, proudly flaunting Britain's flag *
of ownership, unceasingly sweep the c
seas around to a'distance of miles on a s
clear day, instantly reporting the com- v
ing and going of each vessel. Sentries *
guard all the prominent forts, maga- '
zincs and gateways; gunners sleep be
sides their guns; engineers are ever '
rsady beside the powerful searchlights. ■
Modern "needle" guns, the finest in "
Europe, are installed on all the most ■
prominent points. They are unreach- s
able from the sea, even as they are un
discernible, owing to the skill with s
which they are pointed and draped to P
match the surrounding vegetation, D
while huge screens drops automatical- ™
ly befotfe them as each shell is fired. *
They have a range of fifteen miles, and
could drop shells in Ceuta, in Africa, °
opposite, quite comfortably. One gun v
weighs 110 tons, and is capable of *
throwing a shell weighing three-quar- n
ters of a ton. In that marvel of en- s;
gineering under great difficulties, the °
galleries, are concealed guns every day ■
in the years. v
These galleries are divided into three "
sections, entry to which is guarded, °
while one is closed even to high officers,
containing preserved stores, munitions a
of war, rainwater (far Gibraltar has no .
springs,) and a complete condensing v
plant—all calculated to outlast a siege
of seven years. The firing is the most
mathematically perfect imaginable.
The surrounding waters are mapped j
out into squares, upon, which certain s
guns are kept jready trained, so that it t
is almost impossible to miss. During (
practice targets are towed across the >
bay, the object being to hit the water a i
• yards in advance of them. Although \
| the sentries have now been reduced, a \
few years ago 108 were needed daily. ,
Put the mere pressure of an electric j
button by the officer of the guard would ,
' cause a miniature earthquake on the \
neutral ground. j

CONDITIONS THAT MAKE POSSIBLE
THIS BEAUTIFl T L ILLUSION.
About that natural phenomenon, the
mirage, much mystery clung in days
of old, but science explains it as readly
as the rainbow.
The fata morgana of the strait of
Messina and the specter of the Brocken
were nothing more in sober reality than
A mirage may occur at any place
where the denser stratum of air is
placed above the lighter stratum, thus
reflecting the rays of light, the com
mon surface of the twostratums acting
as a mirror.
In looming mirages distant objects
show an extravagant increase in ver
tical height without alteration in
breadth. Distant hummocks of ice are
thus magnified into immense towers
and pinnacles, and a ship is sometimes
abnormally drawn out until it appears
twelve or thirteen times as high as it
is long. Rocks are seen drawn upon to
ten or twelve times their proper height.
Houses as well as human beings and
animals appear in like exagerated
Another form of mirage is when a
ship or some other object near the wat
er seems greatly elongated and a sec
ond inverted image meets it from
Sometimes the proper image of the
object is elevated far above the sea,
while the second image strangely ap
pears inverted beneath it, the whole
surrounded by a sheet of sky which is
mirrored and repeated within it.
In 1882 in the arctic region Captain
Scoresby recognized by its inverted im
age in the air his father's ship, the -
Fame, which afterward proved to be
seventeen miles beyond the visible ho- J
rizon of his observation.
One August evening in 1806 Dr. '
Vince saw from Ramsgate, at which
place only the tops of Dover castle '
towers are usually visible, the whole of
the castle. It appeared as though lift- •
ed up and bodily placed on the near
side of the intervening hill. So perfect ]
was this illusion that the hill itself
actually could not be seen through the (
Some forms of mirage are interal as j
well as vertical, arising from unequal
density of two contiguous vertical bod- j
ies of air. Thus on Lake Geneva a boat
has been seen double, and two images (
some distance apart.
Persons have been duplicated in the ±
same way. Any one on a hot day by
placing his eye near to a heated well (
may see lateral mirages of objects at a
distance and nearly on a line with the ]
Mirages are very frequent on deserts
of the plains which abound
in the south western slates and terri
tories. Many a panting wagon train
has pushed on in joyous haste at the r
sight of a green grove or limpid lake, i
only to be cruelly disappointed at the j
fading away of the vision. Is it any
wonder that the natives and Indians s
regard the phenomenon as the work of t
of evil and tantalizing spirits? t
Lake Ontario is famous for beautiful s
and wonderful mirages, during which ,
the opposite shore of the lake is plainly ,
visible from either side.—Pearson's. i

A Gymnastic Maine Hen. ,
Zenas Dudley of Hampden, has a ■
hen that will lay every day, provided T
she can lay where she wants to, and «
that is sitting on top of a pole. The '
only reason why this hen wishes to s
perch on the tip end of a pole when '
laying can be accounted for only by '
the fact that she laid her first egg on
top of a pole. When she was a small
pullet she was frightened one day and '
flew to the top of a tall pole in the
yard. The dog kept her there for some '
time, and during that time she laid her '
first egg. Never a time since then has ■
she laid an egg except when she has
been on top of some pole. A pole has
been set up in the hen yard where this
hen can make - her daily layings. A
small net bag is placed around the pole
to catch the eggs.—Kennebec Journal.

The Parson and the Dentist.
A clergyman went to have his teeth
fixed by a dentist. When the work
was done the dentist declined to accept
more than a nominal fee. The parson,
in return for this favor, insisted later
on the dentist accepting a volume of
the reverend gentleman's own writing.
It was a disquisition on the Psalms,
and on the fly leaf he had inscribed
this appropriate quotation : "And my
mouth shall show forth thy praise?"

THE TAX IS STILL THERE.
(Reprinted from The Commoner of Oc
tober 16, 1908.)
(We promise to revise the tariff.—Ke
; publican party in 1908.)
i There's a tender reminiscence that is
surging through my soul
As I gaze upon the doughnut with a
thin ring 'round the hole;
'Tis a memory abiding of the halcyon
days of yore
When I hollered for "protection" and
demanded "four years more,"
i And kept up a campaign singing in a
i very lusty tone
; That just what the country needed was
"let well enough alone."
Wow the captains have departed, hush
ed the loud, tumultuous din—
And the dinner pail is empty—but the
tax is on the tin.
Yes, the dinner pail is empty, but the
tax is on the tin;
And a tax upon my clothing, and the
clothing wearing thin.
There's a tax upon the cradle of the
babe of which I'm proud;
There's a tax upon my table—there'll
be one upon my shroud.
Yes, I cried out for "protection" till my
throat was raw and hoarse,
And I got it, O I got it—but 'twas in
the neck, of course.
Yes, the promise was as empty as the
argument was thin,
And the dinner pail is empty—but the
tax is on the tin. '
"Four years more," we gaily shouted;
we'll "let well enough alone!"
But the tariff soup was gobbled by the
trusts —we get the bone.
"Workingmen must have protection!" )
was our rousing battlecry, t
And the tariff barons cheered us as we j
marched so proudly fly, - L
Now the barons have departed to gay
scenes in Paris, France,
And the badge of our protection is the \
patch upon my pants, r
And we lift the lid and ponder as we r
sadly gaze within 0
That although the pail is empty, still s
the tax is on the tin. j
Rockefeller has his millions that he v
grabbed through tariff graft;
Carnegie has just as many, and they're
both of them for Taft. (
Morgan, Havemeyer, Dupont, and the *
whole protection bunch °
Live in fatness while yours truly only r
gets hot air for lunch. s
Once a pail filled to repletion, now a c
doughnut with a hole. ■ v
And "protection" that's as scanty as a ■*
tariff grafter's soul. ''
O, they fooled us good and plenty just *
as soon as they got in,
For the dinner pail is empty—but the *
tax is en the tin. —W. M. M. °

Spoilee His Taste.
"A friend of mine," said a Montana
man, "is defending a damage suit for
being a party to making a man take c
the liquor cure without his consent.
This man had been on a protracted
spree of several weeks, and his busi
ness was going to the dogs. My friend °
thought it would be a kindly thing to
send him to a sanitarium for treat
ment. He did so, and the man was
given the cure for the whiskey habit. l
When he was discharged from the san- a
itarium the first thing he did was to go s
to a saloon. He called for whiskey.
He tasted it, but did not fancy the fla
vor of it. He set his distaste of it down
to the cure he had been given by my
friend's orders and immediately began [
suit for $50,000 damages. He says in
his complaint that he had a highly
cultivated and discriminating taste for
whiskey, which had taken years to de
velop, and that it was spoiled by the r
cure. Ido not know how my friend l
will come out, but he is not helping «
any more down and outs without first
obtaining their consent."—New York

Test for Eggs. \
Placed in the water, an egg, if fresh, 1
will lemain resting at the bottom of the
vessel; if not quite fresh, it will rest
with the big endjraised higher than the
small end, and the higher the big end
is raised the older is the egg.
As an egg gets older, the water con
tained in the white evaporates, and
this causes the empty space at the .
thick end of the egg to become enlarg
ed-.- The larger that empty space be
comes the more the egg rises in the '
water till in course of time it floats.
