of this remarkable weapon."
''Partly for tl-- sake of develop.

from hitu. I go off in the opposite

careful aim, say at Jones' man whc
is chopping wood in the next yard.
I let fly, and the first thing you

Wedne!,day morning while I was
out in tile yard trying the thing, I
forgot. I aimed at the bird-cage
in the porch, and the poker w(ent
over my head and straight through
the kitchen window. I apologized
to Mrs. Metcalf, and tried agal!..
This time I aimed right at the
kitchen window, intending to hit
the bird cage behind ie. The
boomerang must have got twisted
somehow, for the scientific prin

and she went bang through the
kitchen window again."
"Did it steike Mrs Metcalf?"
"Struck her head, your worship.
But I exp)lained and bent the poker
aimled at' the pump11 and let her fly.
She turnied over, flew lbehind me,
and nearly brained Matilda, the
servant girl, who was comning out
of tihe coal cellar, at that moment."
'"Where is Matilda?''
"'In thle hospital. She is having
a treep)an- -a kind of trapdoor let
ito her skull. She will suM me as

''But hlave you managed to hit
any ducks yet ?"
"'I'll tell you. I caught a duock
and tied it down to a gosseberry
bush. I projected the boomierang
at that duck two hundred and

on1ce when it slipped. I hit overy
