to send out ladies to gat votes he
had better withdraw from the

SAVES HEARING OF GUNNERS
Simple Devise That Has en Found
ef Immense Value In Selee
The fact that the ear of gunners
are frequently seriously injured by
the detonations of great guns, the
tympanum of the ear being often
raptured, has led to the invention by
Karlotti of a simple but effective de
via which prevents these injurious
eleuts without diminishing the
el7rp sof hearag. .
sh prottor consists of a solid
mass of glass of such form as to At
asarately the external ear, into
which it is lnarted. It is traversed
horitltly by a perforation, the in
ner e of which almost touches the
tympanum. Theouter end of this
beorisontal passe dies not quite
reach the nter ead of h murss of
glass, but maeots with a vertical
pase whisch communicates freldy
with the atmosphere above add "e
low. The violent distubausc of the
air caused by the artillery dihrg
produces an aspiration in the ho*r
atsedw between the tympanum and
the glass protester.
By resonaa of this urefaltier the
force of the aerial vibration trea
mitted to the tympam is very
