The Muoh Sought Figures Given Oat
I to the PobUc.
Speaker (Jannon Friday made pub
lic tbe census bureau figures on un
ginned cotton immediately after the
house was called to order. The total
amount of unginned cotton shown by
the report is 250.884 bales with 1,643
ginneries unheard from. This publi
cation was in accordance with the
Sims resolution passed by the house
requiring Director North of the cen
sus bureau to furnish to congress all
data on unginned cotton of tbe crop
of 1905 collected before Jan. 16.
An effort was made to have Speak
er Cannon order the report r*ad in
the house, but he flatly refnsed to do
this, saying the document must pass
through ordinary ohannels and an
nounced that he thought the figures
were misinformation, rather than in
formation; that thev were based on
partial returns and of little value.
The report had not arrived at the
house wben the speaker rapped for
order. In response to inquiries from
the department of commerce and la
bor as to how the report should be
bandied he replied that he would turn
it over to the journal clerk and have
it made public through tbe public do
cument room in case it arrived before
the whole. Otherwise, he said, it
must wait until the house came out of
a committee of the whole as he did
not purpose deviating in the least
from the ordinary procedure for the
purpose of publishing figures of inter
est chiefly to speculators.
Officials of the department of com
merce and labor hurried tbe report to
the capltol, as they did not wish to
be responsible for delay and it ar
rived in time to be placed in the
I speaker's charge before the house took
up the day's work. Under orders from
I the speaker a clerk in the public doo
ument room read the figures for a
largs group of members of the house
I and newspaper men who were eagerly
awaiting the totals in the report.
Southern members expressed much
dissatisfaction with the figures and
said they were far from the truth.
Members from the Northern cotton
mill districts were equally harsh in
their criticism of the totals and de
clared the ginneries unheard from
might make a radical difference in

A FEBBDISH ATTACK.
A Lady Attacked in Her Home By ?
The Atlanta Journal savs Mrs.
Mannie May Dupree, nineteen years
old, was knocked down and rendered
uccmsclous and her throat slightly
cut Tuesday afternoon of last week
by a negro in the kitohen of H. T.
Grogan, on the Jonesboro road, near
Cornell. Tbe negro esciped and a
posse of blood hounds belonging to
tbe federal prison, and the olty and
county police are on his trail.
Dr. C. O. Smith, who was called in
to attend the young woman found her
unconscious and bleeding from a
slight wound in the throat, Mrs. Du
pree is not seriously hurb and will re
To Dr. Smith Mrs. Dupree said she
did not remember the appearance of
the negro. She did not state to the
dtctor whether she was criminally as
saulted or whether an attempt of that
kind had been made. It is believed
however, that this was the attempt
of the negro.
Mrs. Dupree's husba d is not the
city just now, and?she ad been living
at the home of H. T, Grogan.
Accounts of the time ?vhen the at
tack occurred differ, but it is thought
that it happened about 3.30 o'clock
Mrs. Dupree bad started to tbe
kitchen on an errand. Turning then
to k'o back into tbe house she was
confronted suddenly by a negro who
dealt her a blow In the forehad. She
was knocked fiat on the floor and
there lay unconscious until other wo
men in the house who had doubtless
heard her scream when she fell ran to
They found Mrs. Dupree in a state
of stupor and bleeding from a wound
in her throat, evidently lnfiioted from
a knife, or some sharp instrument.
Mrs. Dupree was pioked up and
borne into a room, later Dr, Smith
was summoned. He tried to calm the
young woman who had become hyster
ical and examined the wound on her
throat found that it was not serious.

WORLP'S OLDEST INDUSTRY.
Manufacture of Gun Flints?Still
Used in Africa and Asia.
Probably the oldest established busi
ness, in the world is at Brandon, in Suf
folk, where the manufacture of gun
flints has been carried on as the suc
cessor to the prehistoric manufacture
of arrow beads from the same mate
rial. It is estimated that for more than
ten thousand years flint working has
been carried on at that spot; the only
change made since those early days be
ing in the introduction of metal tools
for working the flints in place of the
stone and horn of the'average.
Gun flints are still in use In various
parts of Asia and Africa, where the
possession of percussion cartridges is
forbidden to the natives. The average
weekly production is still 150,000,
though in the days when the flint lock
was the universal arm millions were
turned out weekly, since Brandon Is
noted as producing the best flin'ts made.
Gun flints are not the only product,
however, for in Latin Europe the
"strike-a-light" is still given the pref
erence over matches, and of these about
twenty thousand a week are manufac
tured for the Italian and Spanish trade.
During the Bo<ir war 14,000 flints were
issued to the british troops and were
found valuable in emergencies where
the ordinary nu.tch would not have
The strata of flint are in five layers
on-Lingheath Common, a mile south
east of the village. Each miner works
by himself, employing the same meth
ods as were followed by the earlier
workmen, the ground being uncovered
In layers or "steps," that the dirt may
be carried away without the use of
windlass and buckets.
The product is sold to the chippers,
who work at their homes In the village.
In spite of the fact that each blow of
the hammer Is from a different angle
and is struck with various force, the
workman instinctively guides the chisel
and the flakes fall Into the baskets in
an almost continuous stream. They
are shaped with, a chisel-like hammer
on a block of iron and are then packed
into barrels containing from 6,000 to
Child Marriages In India.
. More than 250,000 girls In India, 5
years of age or less, were already mar
ried when the last census was taken,
and of these necessarily many have
become widows. Between 5 and 10
years the number of married girls was
well over 2,000,000, between 10 and 15
years It had risen to nearly 7,000,000.
Of course, to the girls In the first two
categories marriage meant nothing
more than a contrac. entered into for
them by others,, long before they them
selves were capable of understanding
it; many of them had been bound by
engagements when they were still chil
dren in arms; some had even been be
trothed before they were born.
Most of the widows of such tender
years become so before they know what
widowhood means. It is only as they
grow out of infancy that they learn the
sad life to which they are condemned,
a life of misery which is inconceivable
to people of western countries, yet is
enforced by Hindoo customs. It Is a
life of hardship, of unmerited shame, of
irksome penances and of wearisome at
tendance at religious functions.
Though the English law in India
would recognize the legality of a re
marriage of these youthful widows, in
exorable custom forbids it and its oc
currence is rare. There were in India
In 1901 nearly 426,000 widows under 15
years of age, of which nearly 20,000
were less than 5 years old.
Measuring Eye Jumps.
We know that an eye, at ordinary
reading distance, takes in about one
Inch of a line at a time, and that in
reading a line of an ordinary book the
eye makes five or six (more or less,
according to the length of the line) dis
tinct jumps. But how many know
what direction the'eye takes in making
these jumps? And, as the movements
are so very minute and rapid, how have
they been studied? A very ingenious
means has been employed, as follows:
A beam of light is thrown upon the
cornea of the eye under examination,
and this beam Is reflected by the cor
nea on to a photographic plate. As the
eye moves in reading the reflected beam
also moves, and upon developing the
plate, which is also kept moving, a zig
zag line Is found. A study of such
photographic tracings shows that the
eyes in turning back to pick up the
next line have some difficulty in so do
The longer the line of print the great
er the effort, and for this reason we
may conclude that a narrow line is bet
ter for an eye than a long one, and if
the line be much wider than the ordi
nary newspaper column there is great
er effort involved.?Jewelers' Circular
