the dinky," Mylo Scully, went
ashore 'today with his crew. Some
one on the dock asked him II he ever
galloped a goose. Mylo said no, but
he could ride a horse, and to prove
his statement he attempted to strad
die a boom. He missed his looting
and as he fell he grappled a lad sit
ting on the dock and they went over
board. The cutter's crew quickly
hauled them out' All bands aboard
now have the laugh on Scully.

Andersen' Childlike Vanity.
Hans Christian Andersen," said one
who saw him often, "was the most
charming egotist I ever knew." When
the Danish crowu prince brought home
his Swedish bride in the siuntner of
1SK), a great assemblage of people
stood in the streets of Copenhagen to
see the royal couple pass.
In one group were several distin
guished women and the great story
teller. Hans Christian Andersen. The
women occupied front seats at the win
dow and received marked attention
from the court dignitaries in the pro

ThrOPopnlmlon of Babylon.
Various attempts have lx-en made, by

Babylon. But on the lowest calcula-
ion it would be found. supiKsing It to

agricultural purposes must have been
quite inadequate to supply the neces

Perhaps, on the whole, we may esti

WORK AT THE ARSENAL
NOT LIVELY NOW.
Awaiting possible changes in the
style of gun carriages as the result of
experiments now under way, the force
of employes at Rock Island arsenal
has been materially reduced. About
1.100 men are employed now where
there were 1.300 a few weeks ago.
The appropriations which have
been made are not large enough to
employ the larger number, but it is
claimed that the usual number of
men will be retained in the equipment
departments as heretofore.
No new orders are being received
for gun carriages and no new ones are
expected for some time because the
war department contemplates tome
changes ia the present types. Some
new designs have been presented and
these are to be tested at the proving
grounds at Sandy Hock next month,
od until this is done and a decision
has been arrived at the manufacture
of the present style will be suspended.
The machinery for the small arm
plant is all ordered, and it is coming
in and being set. There is a vast
mount of it. and the work is of large
extent, and costs a handsome figure
in the aggregate. Owing to some de
lays at Washington there was a late
placing of the orders for much of this
nachinery, and this is causing a de
lay now in its delivery. Again, a
part of that machinery is of special
lesign, fitted for a special work, and
it has to be built to order, and that
causes slow delivery. Tho?o special
'uachines will not be on the ground
efore a year from this time, or thcre
ibouts. At the earliest it is not possible to
have the machinery of the plant all ia
place before July. '1D02. It is likely
to be ia lace by that time. This
does not mean that the plant will bo
ready to run then, for there will re
maiu a good deal more to do in the
furnishing of the fittings for each ma
chine, and there may be delays, due
to changes in the arms by that lime.

Why he Mole la HI J nil. '
The creatures which dwelt la tho
darkness of thy depths naturally lost
their powers of vision after awhile. It
Is the same way with the mole, which
is doubtless descended from progeni
tors which could see. Blindness in the
mole is the result of a degeneration of
the optic nerve, tho consequence of
which is that Images formed in tho eye
itself are not transmitted to the ani
mal's consciousness. Occasionally a
mole can see a little out of one eye
which has retained Its communication
with the brain.
It Is not that the mole Is born blind.
but that it inherits a tendency to atro
phy of the visual organs just as peo
ple derive from their parents an incli
nation to consumption or other dis
eases. Some day In the future there
may bo no such thltig as a mole that id
