very strange appearance. lie carries a
lantern, and the only use he says he
has for It Is to watch the colt at,night
In case it should become sick.
"I expect I look like a wild man,"
Donohue said to a reporter, "but I
can't help it, and a person ain't goiug
to try to keep very clean after he has
walked COO miles. I left Crawford
county and everything I owned, with
the exception of the colt and lantern
and my gun, April 14, and I've been
walking ever since."
He then explained that Ae only
thing he left In Ohio was nn empty
"Walking ain't ris nice as riding," ho
said, "but I didn't have the money, so
I just thought I'd take the colt and
walk to Oklahoma. I guess I'll get
there about next fall, but I don't care,
just so I get there some time."
Donoiiue is very proud of his rifle. He
says his father gave It to him wlieu he
died, and he wouldn't sell it for a for
tune, nor would he sell the colt, not
withstanding the fact that he has had
several offers. He says three men
stopped him and asked him If he want
ed to sell the colt lefore he had been
iu St. Louis ten miuutes.
He walks all day and sleeps at night,
and he says he will keep it up until he
reaches Oklahoma. He claims he was
born and raised in Crawford county
and never has been away from his
birthplace until now. He says he has
never ridden on ji train because it
costs too much. He said he is about

BLACK ROD OF THE LORDS.
Survival of the Fittest.
Sir. John Gatchell of Brunswick,

using a sixteen pound pumpkin that
had kept sound through the winter.
Ilia Last Public Appearance aa an
Executive O nicer. .
Black Rod Is an Important and pic
turesque functionary of parliament.
He is at once the policeman of the
house of lords and the parliamentary
messenger of the sovereign. He exe
cutes the warrants issued by the upper
chamber for the arrest of the persons
who have been adjudged guilty of a
breach of Its privileges or a contempt
of its dignities. But in these days the
curiosity of the public or its love of
sensation is never piqued by the ap
pearance of Black Bod In the role of
a policeman. Indeed, it is nearly a
ceutury now since a poor, trembling
wretch stood, in the custody of Black
Rod, at the bar of the house of lords,
charged with having outraged Its aw
ful majesty. Ho was a tradesman of
One winter evening, after he had put
up the shutters of his shop, he strolled
across Old Palace yard to hear a de
bate In the house of lords. He had
with him an umbrella, which he depos
ited iu the charge of one of tho door
keepers before he entered the stran
gers gallery. He never saw the arti
cle again. Another stranger, yielding
to a too common weakness of frail hu
manity, carried it off while its rightful
owner, trustful of the might of the im
perial parliament to protect, at least
within its own sacred precincts, the
property of its subjects, was drinking
iu political wisdom from the lips per
haps of the Duke of "Wellington.
The tradesman of Westminster was
naturally Indignant over the loss of his
umbrella, but Iho expression of his
feelings assumed a form highly sub
versive of the iincient privileges of
parliament, lie actually issued a proc
ess against the doorkeeper of the house
of lords for the recovery of the value
of the lost article. This whs more
than the house of lords could stand.
One of its doorkeeiers summoned to
appear as a defendant in a court of
law! Black Bod was dispatched to ar
rest the daring shopkeeper, who was
brought forthwith to the bar and
souudly rated by the lord chancellor
o his presumption In outraging the
dignities of the house of lords because
of the loss of a miserable umbrella.
Happily he was not consigned to the
tower. He humbly apologized for his
conduct, promised to take no further
action against the doorkeeper and aft
er another severe reprimand was es
corted by Black Bod to Old Palace
yard and there discharged. That was
the ' last public appearance of Black
Rod as the executive ofilcer of the
house of lords. London Chronicle.
Most people when they look at a mag
nificent cabinet of butterflies, gleaming
and glowing with a huudred Iridescent
hues, think that each butterfly was
caught by hand caught after a chase
of a mile of two under a net or a hat.
As a matter of fact, butterflies are rais
ed on little farms, like chickens. There
is such a steady butterfly demand that
it pays men to raise them. These men.
exports in the employ of museums, as
a rule, know larvae as a chicken farm
er knows eggs, and they have no dif
ficulty in selling at a good profit ail the
butterflies they grow. The stock room
of a butterfly farmer is a rare and
beautiful sight. It is a room of glass
filled with sunshine, and in the brilliant
light hundreds of the loveliest butter
flies flutter and float. In the profound
silence their colors seem to sing, so

NEW BOAT PROPELLER.
Device Intended to Take the Place
of Oara In Small Craft.
A new device for propelling small
craft through the water has been in
vented by William G. Busse, a Brook
lyn machinist Roughly described, the
invention consists of miniature propel
lers attached to the sides of boat or
canoe and to which power is conveyed
iy the rotation of cranks projecting
over the sides into the body of the
boat. These cranks are operated by
It Is necessary to transfer the power
around two corners, and it would seem
to the uninitiated that there would be
considerable lost motion. Buf the In
ventor has met this objection in the
care and perfection of the gears. The
work of moving a boat by these pro
pellers is not more fatiguing than it is
with oars this In the face of the fact
that'men are not as accustomed to the
crank method of applying energy as
they are to the pull of oars or the lev
erage of the paddle.
The portable hand propellers, as tha
inventor calls them, are twenty inches

PBOFEIiliEU IN FLACK.
In length from the top of the crank
to the bottom of the propeller. They
can also le extended for twelve Inches
more and then secure even better hold
on the water. They take down Into
very small compass and can be stowed
in a bag, not unlike that carried by
physicians, fourteeu inches in length
and six Inches in height. The weight
of the propellers thus takeu down is
nine pounds, or less than oars.
Ball bearings are everywhere; roller
bearings where ball bearings are not
suitable. Tho gears at the top are
machine cut steel, the propellers are
brass; everything to go under water Is
brass. They are Instantly detachable
from the gunwale of the craft, whether
It 1m? canoe or rowboat, and are so
constructed that it Is difficult for the
inexperienced to get them out of order
or wrongly adjust them to the loat.
The duck hunter will instantly eee
the point of these noiseless, powerful
and invisible oars. Nothing could be
better for a quiet approach to the wary
birds. For the angler they are espe
cially well adapted, as they permit him
to see where he is going and to ap
proach close to the shore or a rock
without touching it with his oars. By
creating forward motion on one side
of the craft and backward on the other
It Is possible to turn the craft In Its
own length. One special feature Is that
by carrying off the propellers the own
er of the craft renders it practically

typewriter for the blind, of which It Is
expected that It will enable them to
write and read in the same manner
and under the same conditions as those
who can see. The apparatus is sup

two or more of these keys are pressed
down with the fiiyjors the desired let

new typewriter with keys Is by far the
most perfect Instrument which has
ever been offered to the blind for writ

furnishes a regular writing that, the
blind can easily read. Another advan
