London Industries tells ot a pneu
matic shell invented and perfected by
an Englishman, which seems equally
adaptable for naval, field or siege guns,
and that with only a slight alteration
ot the breech and firing mechanism
of ordinary gun. This pneumatic
shell would appear to have the merit
of being both simple in construction
and efficient in action. It h carried
the ordinary tumbril of field
piece, and is perfectly safe, as it is
simply a strong metallic cartridge
containing the impelling charge of
compressed air or gas at the rear of
the chamber containing the explosive.
When required to be used, it is in
serted in the breech of a gnn in the
usual manner, as in a quick-firing
gnn, when a simple turn of a lever
instantaneously releases the air or gas
and the shell or projectile, which con
tains in the forward chamber a charge
of dynamite or other high explosive,
is sent with deadly effect to the re
quired direction. In this operation
no smoke is made, there is practically
no noise and the gnn works cool and
clean. With this it is supposed that
vessels will be able to fight practically
without noise and absolutely without
smoke or heating of the gun barrels
while showering deadly missiles
gainst the torpedo-boat flotilla.

Poplar Bixft, Mo, Ang. 23, 91.
Seeing an article in your Daily
few days ago ia regard to the ice fac
tory at Poplar Bluff, and stating, that
"if a little town like Poplar Bluff can
afford an ice factory, why can't the
metropolis of Southeast Missouri?"
Yes, why can't Cape Girardeau have
and support a factory of this kind?
There she is, not only the metropolis
of Southeast Missouri, the future lead
ing city of the State, but the finest
situated and most beautiful little city
lying upon the Father of Waters be
tween St Louis and New Orleans.
Come now, let's see the enterprising
and pushing men of the Cape wake
up from their long, and what has
seemed, an unwakeable sleep. Or
ganize a Mock company, put a good
man at the head, for instance, such a
man as Capt II. L Hunze, he being a
mau of push and energy will make a
success of it Aye, such a grand suc
cess that in less than a year it would
pay for itself and increase the business
of the Cape ten-fold.
Here is Poplar Bluff, a little town
situated on a hill lying between two
swamps, with nothing but a few rail
roads to give it access to the outside
world. But still they can afford an
ice factory, and why? Because they
have a man at the head ot it who has
push and energy. They turn out tons
of ice every day and it is shipped all
over the southern part of the State
and the northern part of Arkansas.
This factory is run day and night, but
still tliev cannot supply the demand.
Now think how an enterprise of
this kind would benefit the Cape. If
you nau a lactory or this kind run
ning day and night and turning out
tons aud tons of ice every day, yon
could easily find a market for it and
then think of the income. New
come, citizens of the Cape, wake up
and take hold of thi6 with a will.
Don't let the good old Cape loose her
name of being the metropolis of the
Southeast, but make her the leading
city of the whole West
There is the "silver-tongued orator,'

County surveyor, Rudolph Weber
and Robert Jones have just returned
from the wilds of New Madrid connty,
where they have been surveying for a
week past They tell a strange story
of an old man and his son, by the
name of Summers, who live in this
almost uninhabitable portion of New
Madrid county. lie has about seven
acres of cleared land, and he and his
son manage to cultivate it without the
aid of any kind of animal. One ot
them pulls the plow and the other
one holds the handles; they plow over
the entire seven acres in four days.
They told the boys that they had
cultivated it in this manner for three
years, and the) had considerable old
corn on hand. Our informants saw
the plow which they used; it was an
ordinary mount's trne blue with a
chain attached to the clevis, with a
stick fastened to it, so a man could
put his arms behind him and pull.
They have been living there six years
and have a neat hewed log house, lots
of chickens, ducks, and a fine drove
of hogs. The young man told the
boys that he hadn't been to the near
est town, New Madrid, for more than
year. This seems nn usual and
strange iu this advanced age of civil
ization. Bloomfleld Vindicator.
