LASSOED THE GATLING GUN.
"At the beginning of the Mexican
rebellion hundreds of Texas cowmen
enlisted in the Insurrecto army," N.
H. Kirkpatrick, a mining engineer of
Denver who has recently returned
from Mexico, said at the Hotel Balti
more, according to the Kansas City
Star. "These men Joined the revolu
tionists more for excitement than for
glory, and they gained their end. At
the beginning of the war two parties
of federals surprised a number of in
surgents and surrounded them. This
incident occurred in Chihuahua, near
a mine I was examining. The federals
had a rapid-fire gun, mounted on a
fence, that could be Bwung around an
arc of ninety degrees. It greatly an
noyed the insurgents.
"A Texas cowboy, a member of the
revolutionaries, detailed himself to
save the day. Armed with a lariat
and -a sack of tobacco he rode under
cover close to the gun. Then, seeing
that he was outside the quadrant com
manded by it, he loped across the in
tervening space and, before the
amazed gunners knew he was there,
roped the Gatling gun and dragged lt
.to the revolutionary camp. It was
turned against its former proprietors
and tho federals were defeated."
SPEED OF THOUGHT.
"As quick as thought," ia an ex
pression much used to denote the
acme of speed in action, but, like so
many .popular expressions, this one is
misleading. Thought, or at least the
mental registering of a sensation, ls
not an exceedingly speedy process,
the thought impulse'moving at the
comparatively slow speed of 110 feet
a second, or 75 miles an hour. Sound
travels nearly ten times as fast and
light nearly nine million times as
swiftly. Thought would be hopelessly
beaten in a race with a motor car, or
even a flying machine operating under
Perhaps a good illustration of the
comparative slowness of thought
waves is to assume that a man had
an arm 75 miles long and that, when
he was not looking a friend should
grasp his hand. Before the owner of
the dong arm became conscious that
his hand had been touched the friend
would have released it and had time
to walk four miles or eat a very ex
tensive dinner. .
OLDEST CHURCH ORGAN.
The Swedish island Bothland, a
mecca for students of early Gothic ar
chitecture, lies in the Baltic sea, 40
miles from the mainland. In Wisby,
the principal town of the island, may
be seen the ruins of no fewer than
ten chtfrches, some of which date
from the eleventh and twelfth centu
A director in a German musical in
stitution, who was especially Interest
ed in the study of medieval organs,
visited 59 churches in Bothland, and
In a village called Sundre came upon
the remnant of what ls unquestionably
the oldest knewn organ in existence.
The case alone has survived the fret
of seven centuries, and its exterior is
adorned with paintings dating from
about the year 1240.
When this ancient instrument could
no longer serve its original purpose,
lt was used as a sacristy, and for the
safeguard of holy vessels and vest
ments was kept in careful repair;
hence its excellent preservation to our
SEVENTH SON IN BELGIUM.
In the early days of the reign of the
late King Leopold of Belgium a sev
enth son was born to a Brussels wom
an, and when the king heard of lt and
was told that the boy was the sev
enth successive one and that no girl
had come to the family he asked to b',
the baby's godfather.
Ever since then every seventh son
born in Brussels has had the same
honor, and the mothers have received
gifts in keeping with t?eir station in
life. King Albert, In carrying out the
old usage a short time ago had some
difficulty because the seventh son was
twins. He could not stand for both
boys, because that would give the fam
ily two Alberts. The remedy was
found by Queen Elizabeth, who sug
gested that her little son, the duke
of Brabant, be ihe godfather of the
eighth boy, who consequently re
ceived the name Leopold.
JOHNSON AND CLEAN LINEN.
Dr. Johnson may be numbered with
those who maintain a cheerful indif
ference on the subject of personal
cleanliness, says the London Chroni
cle. "I hate Immersion," he remarked
to Wickins-a Lichfield draper, who
expected Johnson to admire his bath.
One remembers, too, his original de
fense ?? Christoper Smart, the mad
poet. "Another charge was that he
did not love clean linen; and I have
no passion for it" ,
