"The most remarkable escape from

superintendents, "was that of Prank

But I'll not tell you about it, for here

When he.was sent buck te Sail Quentin

with other Convicts in the engineroom.
It was here that an idea came into his
brain that for absolute daring aud
fearlessness was typical of the Stan:
He had noticed thob ever.y evening at
the time the men working iii the eu
gine room were lined up to be marched
away> the machinery wes stopped at
exactly the same moment. He had
observed as well that a window lead
ing to en adjacent roof was not far
from the top of the big driving belt
of tho eugine. - From that roof it was
possible to reach the outer wall of the
prison. Beyond the wall W?s fr??
dom. He had escaped sb many t?iu?s
that his mind reverted ?g?iu and again
to the window high up on the Wall of
the engine room. Apparently it was
beyond all possibility of being reached.
No ladder was to be obtained. Had
such a thing been even staudiug in
piece against the wall, to break from
the line and scale it with catlike dex
terity, although the work of but a few
seconds, ho well knew would be futile,
possibly fatal. Ballets travel faster
than legs, and the guards were not
bad shots. But desperate deeds de
mand desperate means. Some minds
may work with au ingenuity born of
despair, but Steadinan's was of a dif
ferent calibre* His plans were the
outgrowth of steadfast optimism. Ile
never ceased to scheme, as he never
ceased to hope for liberty.
"One day there came to him, as if
by inspiration, the thought that the
big belt might be the means of carry
ing him to his goal He found that it
'was impossible to count the revolu
tions of the driving wheel, but there
wore lacings in the broad belt, which
he was able to distinguish as a sort of
blur as it passed a given po'int-. For
duys and days he counted, aud in his
cell at night he spent his time in cal
culations. He discovered tue exact
number of revolutions the whocl made
per minute. He learned also, by con
stant observation, just how many times
the belt went round after tho engine
was shut down.
"One evening, when the line had
been formed a3 usual at the closo of
the day's work, aud as the big wheel
began to lose its momemtum, suddenly
a convict sprang from the ie, leaped
to the belt, with outstretched arms
grappling both edges of the broad
leather. He had calculated well the
strength that would be required, for
the terrific wrench did not loosen his
grasp. Outward and upward he swung
until he reached the topmost point of
the circumference. The nicety of his
calculation had reaped its reward. The
belt stopped. He leaped to his feet,
sprang through the window, and was
gonj^before convicts or guards had
recj^red from their astonishment.
He caught np a guard's coat and hat,
dropped from the wall aud got away in
the dusk of the evening. I am in
clined to believe that as a mathemat

' Tho art of waging war in tho hot
climates is to choose the cool seasou
of the year. Unfortunately for the
British Cuba was extremely hot and
unhealthy in the month of June, and
it waa therefore the very worst season
tn which the siege of Havana could
have boen attempted",
. After Hftv?ha had faileu the Earl of
Albemarle wrote home to the secre
tary of state : "Wo aro now better
aequaihted with the climate than wo
were when the present expedition was
undortakeu and it is certain that the
only season iu the year for troops to
act in is from the beginning of No

The Morro tort was the ohief point
of resistance \ it gudrded lli? entrance
t'? tho l\drbbr bf Havana. Supporting
the guns of the fort were eleven Span
ish men-of-war. Six of these carried
seventy guns, one carried ninety-four
and tho remainder were sixty-gnu
ships. It took three weeks to get the
siege guns landed and in position.
The Spaniards fought bravely and did
great damage to the attacking fleet.
By tho middle of July the defense
was practically nt ali end: Oh Aug:
12 articles Of capitulation were signed
and th? victors proudly set up the Britj

prisoners. The Spanish loss alto
gether was not less than 5000 men.
The British losses were 560 during the
fight and by the end of October (the
men had been dying off like flies from
sickness owinpj to the climate) the
death roll arose to tho enormous num
ber of 1708.
Although Albemarle sent off rt
great number bl survivors to New
York to recruit their health tho mor
tality was very great there, and he
eventually found himself in command
of only 2000 men. It is interesting
to note in passing that his estimate
of the force necessary to hold Cuba

The pocketbook question is one of
the most serious difficulties of married
life. There are very few women who
find it pleasant to ask for money, and
the number will grow smaller as rap

moro and moro girls learn the sweet
ness of independence. A girl who has
earned her own living, even for a lit

comply with her requests ever so
cheerfully, but she will not feel q ute
fairly treated so long as she is com

to spend. There must be a common
pocketbook, or the wife must have un
allowance, the spending of which is
never to be questioned.
A new rlesign in girdles is composed
of tw 3 parallel silver chains about an
inch apart. They are held in place by
vertica' bara of silver at intervals of
three or four inches. Diamond-shaped
and circular pieces of silver are used
instead of the plain bars, and are en
ameled and set with precious stones.
The girdle is also shown mounted on
black or brown leather belts, and is
generally of gilt silver. Among the
designs are silver disks, enameled
pansies .on silver, surrounded by
wreaths of forget-mo-nots. Velvet
belts with diamond-shaped buckles of
oxidized silver are popular. A coun
terpart of the buckle is worn at the
back, and on each side is a circle of
silver of a design similar to that of
the buckle. Another leather belt is
in imitation of a dog collar studded
with little pyramids of silver,and with
a name plate at tho back.
Steel Hairpins Doomed.
The attack now is upon the steel

But what shall wo do without the
little implement which might be called
"woman's best friend?" How are you

to button our gloves and our shoes, to

Lee that all men feel some fear on en
tering ? battle is eminently correct,"
"said a prominent Canadian military
in?n r?cently ''though many military
men So not like to be sd free in their
expressions in this particular. Onc?
in a battle, however, a peculiar ex
citement takes the place of fear. This
excitement is not what could be
called bravery, for the men while un
der its influence are not always brave
as that word is generally understood.
It is a question as to whether you or
your foe shall exist, as to the survival
of the fittest The sight of one man
being shot down in the front rank of a
company, battalion or regiment has
much more to do with 4he work and
action of the compnny, battalion or
regiment than the charge or commands
of the most gallant commanders. It
is an awful sight to witness the first
man fall, but that sight has mor-c to
do with the happenings or result of
that engagement than everything else
combined. But few men can speak of
any recent experience in this respect,
for the reason that there has been no
recent experience, as battles have ouly
been fought on paper for the past teu
or more years. In 1885 I happened to
bs in command of a battalion of Mani
toba soldiery during the Biel rebel
lion, which was a brief but fierce In
dian war while it lasted. On our ar
rival at Batoche we found that Riel
and his Indian followers were strongly
intrenched in a convent building,
which they had seized. The officers
of our command held a consultation
as to how and where we would attack
the convent to dislodge tho Indians.
About this time one of the men of the
command who was sitting on the grass
pretty well in the view of the com
mand fell dead, a rifle ball entering
his forehead. The brain oozing out
of that small hole did'more to inflame
the command and'to direct its terrible
force than anything that we could con
ceive of. It was a question of taking
the convent or allowing the occupants
to take onr lives, and it was soon set
tled, in favor of our lives and against
the Indians. The death of that ono
man decided the contest"-Washing
Making: Onr Flap.
One may pay anything from one
cent to $150 for a flag of the United
States. The latter price will buy a
beautiful silk flag, 12x18 feet in size.
The cheapest flags are stamped on
muslin with the colors red and blue,
and. are then tacked or pasted upon
sticks; they are not guaranteed to
wash. Of this kind is the little penny
flag which the small boy wears on the
lajel of his coat. Such flags are put
through a printing pres(s like calico
shirts and come out all colored at the
ate of 100 a minute. Girls then snip
them apart with sharp shears and glue
them to small sticks hardly bigger
than matches. The best flags have a
canvas band sewn along the back,
through which a ?ope may be run for
fastening them to the pole tackle.
Anybody is at liberty to make
United States flags. Thus it comes
about that all sorts of patterns of the
national ensign are on the market and
in use. Butif anyone desires to have
the colors as they ought to be refer

adopted by the army and navy. This
standard, altered from time to time by
the addition of fresh stars, is preserved
and will continue to be kept by the
secretaries of war and the navy. In

The wile of the Rev. A. R. Adams, pastor
of the Bodford Christian Church at Bland
insville, 111., was for years compelled to
live a lifo of torture from disease. Her
case baffled tho physicians, but to-day she
is alive and well, and tells the story o? her
recovery as follows:
"About six years ago," said Mrs. Adams,
"I weighed about 140 pounds, but my
health bogan to fail nnd I lost flesh. My
food did not agree with mo and felt like a
stone ia my stomach. I began to bloat ail
over until I thought I had dropsy.
"I had pains and soreness in my left side
which extended cleur across my back and
also Into tho region of my heart. During
these spells a hard ridge would appear In
the left sid? of my stomach and around
the left side.
"Thoso attacks left me sore and exhaust

In the last ten years, in which the
government has had to fight a great
deal against the scarcity ot money, it
has decided to sell tLe offices to ric2
people, even if they have net taken the
state examinations, if they only pay
the required amount. It is to be un
derstood that these people will get
back the money they pay. for the office
by usury interest And officers of this
kind are unfavorable t8 all innova
tions, because they know thai th?if
offices and tho prospects of buying
higher and more lucrative ones are
gone as soon as China is opened to cul
ture, as soon as relations are establish
ed which resemble the European, if

other mandarins also kn?ft "Well that
if another system is established, peo
ple will not have to depend for promo
tion upon what is known about the old
classics. They fear that then only
people who have a modern* culture will
be employed, and that those who are

It is a -weapon which protects bicyclists against
vicious dogs and foot-pads; travelers against robbers
and toughs; homer, against thieves and tramps, and is
adapted to many other situations.
It does not kill or injure; it is perfectly safe to
handle; makes no noise or smoke; bleaks no law and
creates no lasting regrets, as does the bullet pistol. It
simply, and amply protects, by compelling the foe to
give undivided attention to himself for awhile instead
of to tne intended victim.
It is the only real weapon whicb protects and also
makes fun, laughter and lots of it; it snoots, not once,'
bu^ many times without reloading; and will protect
by its appearance in time of danger, although loaded
only with liquid. It does not get out of order; is dur
able, handsome, and nickel plated.
