light und an ingenious arrangement
of mirrors lt is possible to surpass
the moon. Search lights" a re now made

three miles, but objects can be seen
only a few miles from the source of
the light. The effect on the enemy is
most demoralizing. When the bright

beam is removed the eye can soe noth

A Disappointing Witness.
Deacon Stephen Potter, one of the
pioneers of Utica. N. Y.. was a mau
of great eccentricity, hut high moral
character. "The deacon will speak' the
truth and shame the devil." was often
said of him.
On one occasion a friend was' en
gaged In a lawsuit in regard to some
land a few miles from Utica. Ile held
the land at a high price. During Hie
trial he called Deacou Potter as a wit
ness to prov?' how valuable the land i
was. The deacon was sworn and
asked if be knew the land.
"Yes." he repli??d. "I know every foot
of it." I
"What do you think it worth. Mr.
Potter?" was the next ?piestion.
The old man paused a moment and
then said slowly. -If I had :is many J
dollars-as my yoke of oxen-(?mid

of a stripe is invariably half the length

ment. For example, in a flag len feet ?
long the stripes should be Bve inches
wide. Accordingly the Hag would have I
a width ??f live feet five inches, or tbir- (
teen times liv?' inches. The field i
should b?' of navy blue bunting meas- ,
tiring seven stripes deep and extending '
two-fifths across the length of the flag.
There should lie forty-six stars on the j
field, arranged in six rows, beginning i
with eight, the two middle rows hav- ?
ing eight and Hie last row eight and
the oilier r??\vs seven. The size of the 1
star at its widest measurement should
be such i hat one-half of its own width
will separate it from the next star.
Klags may be made in all sizes, hut
the above proportions should be pre
served.- I'blladelDhlu Presa.

about 60 head, consisting of fancy pairs of mules, first
class saddle and harness horses, horses with speed and pro

Our aim is to please our patrons by furnishing them with
stock that will give satisfaction. See our stock before you
