ISLAND AKGUS, TUESDAY, JULY 1
yYHE DOAK GUN.

Mr. John Doak, of Keitbsburg, Mercer
county, was in Rock Island yesterday.
Mr. Doak is a modest farmer, who came
west behind a team of oxen before the
mighty iron steed enortpd across the prai
ries of the west. v. He has devoted all his
J'feto agriculture, but having a natural
'liking and an aptitude for scientific re
earob, baa devoted much of his time to
study, experiment and investigation. In
the early days when the state of Illinois
was but spanudly settled by the whites,
' Mr. Doak U9ed to have an occasional
fight with the sav.ige redskins, and he
ten learned something of warfare, and
made some observations as to firearms
lie studied American arms, and
amunitioa and finally made up his mind
that he would see what he could do in
the way of improvement of means and
methods thvn in use. lie conceived a
repeating needle gun, perfected a model.
and yesterday he was in town for the
purpose of exhibiting it to Col. Whitte-
more, at Hock Island arsenal. lie put up
at the Rock Island house, and there it
was that an A no us reporter was afforded
a chance to see Mr. Doak's invention and
hear his explanation of its workings.
The model is made of wood and is not as
complicated as one would naturally ex
pect to find it.
The gun, which has a barrel five feet
, long, is carried on wheels and is operated
by means of a crank. Tbe cartridges are
placed in a block ten at a time
and placed in the gun. There are ten of
these blocks which may all be placed in
the gun and the cartridges discharged
within a minute, two men being neces
sary to operate the gun, one to load and
the other to turn the crank ahd do the
firing. Mr. Doak claims for his gun one
hundred shots a minute, which he says is
equal to one thousand men in battle. lie
holds that the gun will carry four-and
onehalf inch cartridges eleven-sixteenth
inches in diameter, twelve drahms of
powder and a two ounce ball, which will
be thrown two miles.
The gun operates on a pivot plttform,
so mat it may te quickly turned in anv
direction as the lay of the field may be.
Air. uoaa minks tnat bis gun will pour
forth a shower of leaden hail, and that
several of them would clean out large
armies of men in short order, while those
manipulating the gun would be out of
the reach of the shot of the opposing ar
Mr. Doak drove t Rock Island ar
senal in the afternoon, and explained
his model to Col. Whittemore,
who Iook a great deal of interest in it.
out when lie was through examining it
he told Mr. Doak that he had a very good
gun hut there were some in the yards on
the island that were better.
Col. Whittemore was asked his opinion
of the gun this morning, and he said that
Mr. Doak no doubt possessed a great
deal of inventive ineenuity and that he
had probably laid the foundation for
good invention, but that it required de
velopment before it could be considered
at all practical.
The Woodmen Meeting-.
A conference of Modern Woodmen of
this locality was held at Clemlenin's drug
store, Moline, Saturday evening, at which
were present two representatives from
each of tne two camps in Moline, two
from the Stewartville camp, two from
Rock Island camp, of Rock Island, and
two from the camp at Milan. Wm.
Clendenin was made chairman, and C.
W. Hawes, of Rock Island, secretary.
There was considerable discussion of
matters pertaining to the good of the
order, and especially to the coming con

Almost everybody 1 meet would like to go

When 1 went out to ride in the country
around Constantinople a big flock of quails
was always flying ahead of the carriage, and
the Talace of the Sweet Waters seemed to be
in a cloud of these birds. At the hotel it was
quail at every meal till I hated the sight of
them ; and since that I have never cared to
at them. '
I do not intend to give a list of the annoy
ances one encounters iu foreign travel. It
may seem incredible to my young frieuds that
so insignificant au insect as the wicked ilea
can seriously interfere with so grand an
achievement as a tour abroad. I do not im
agine that I ham suffered more than the av
erage traveler in Spain, Italy and some other
countries, though my skin may be thinner
than that of most of tbem; but I look upon
the flea as I have seen him magnified on a
white surface by the lenses of the scientist.
To me he U bigger than an elephant, and it
teems as though the bite of a crocodile would
tie pleasant comared w ith that of the blood
thirsty insect. This monster has not only
kept me awake all night when I needed sleep,
but he has made me writhe and squirm ail
day. I really believe tbe fleas in Italy and
Kpain are more to be dreaded than the ban
ditti of those countries.
Spain and Italy are not alone in subjecting
the traveler to the torture of the wicked flea.
Even in the far north, where ice and snow
dominate the year, the festive flea has a resi
dence. One night 1 went to bed, tired out
after a hard day's work, sight feeing, in a
hotel in Christ iania, iu Norway. I soon found
that 1 could not go to sleep, sleepy as I was.
r thought I had au attack of hives or rash, or
that I had captured the itch in some stemner
I lay in torment till I heard a clock strike
the midnight hour. Then I lievame ilo-.x-rale
and leajied from the tied. I lighted my two
candles, determined to ascertain what the
matter w. I could find nothing on my
skin that looked like scabies, and then with a
candle in each band I examined the lied. I
was swarming with a very large sized, blue
black flea; and I hail learned by experience
that this sort was particularly wicke.1.
I took my corn broom and brushed them
out of the bed and tried airaiu to sleep, ex
pecting to have my liones picked clean be
fore morning, though I was to becaijud m 5
to take n steamer. I struggfeoi 'in vain for
another hour, an-' ;i7eu got up again. I
brushed the l':.,nsters all out again, and tbis
tiflic I "Tits careful that no part of tbe bed
clothes should drop down to the floor. This
succeeded. At any rate, I was so exhausted
that at last I went to sleep.
I was c-aJled in two hours; and in what con
dition was I to appreciate the scuery of the
Christian ia Fjiord? As soon as the steamer
was in the SUager itack I went to sleep. That
night I had my battle anil defeat at the teeth
of the red urmored knights of my berth in a
In Holland one night I was bitten one mil
lion times by another kind of flea, hardly leas
wicked. I did not count them, but 1 esti
mated them. Walking through the Circus of
Maxenlius, in Koine, I sinelled pennyroyal.
1 had heard that tbis berb was au antidote
for the wicked flea, as it is for black flies
and mosquitoes. I gathered a considerable
quantity of it; but I (lid not actually suffer
from the depredations of the terrible mon
ster in Italy.
In Iturgos, in Spain, after looking over the
magnificent cathedral and glancing at the
bones of the Cid and his wife, our party of
three took a carriage at the hotel to visit the
tomb of the Cid, six or seven miles from the
city. The vehicle was a tumble down old
hack. A kind of clotb with a nap to it had
been used to piece nut the worn out lining. I
wore long boots, and in a few minutes the
armies of tbe wicked flea began to altuck me
by making an advance on my legs.
There was no road to the convent that con
tains the tomb, and the old carriage bounced
over rocks, sometimes a foot high, and we
were pitched from one side to tbe other of
the interior and into the laps of each other.
We laughed at the bumps we got and should
have had a lively time of it if the fleas had
not spoiled all the fun. We writhed and
squirmed as though we were bitten by snakes.
In spite of bis prowess and the sujierimtural
aid be received in his mighty victories, 1
doubt if the Cid Campeador could have con
quered the army that beset our iarty.
Twisting alxmt and pirouetting like a
French dancing master, I looked at tbe tomb,
but I did not take much interest iu it. At
the hotel I brushed the fleas out of the inside
of my clothes and applied cologne to the skin,
and it was very refreshing. Then I put au
abundance of pennyroyal in my garments.
I was all right till I took in a new stock in
Madrid. They worried and tortured my
companions and myself beyond endurance. 1
obtained a bottle of flea. iowdnr at the capi
tal, which was of some service, but I still re
gard the wicked fleas as one of the scourges
of travel. Oliver Optic in Philadelphia

I am curious to know what it is that makes
a painting by one artist worth $10,00(1, ami a
painting by another, though equally good,
perhaps even better, worth but till. I saw
some pictures recently by a painter who can
just keep bis bead above water, which are as
well pointed as aro the canvases of many
artists who are on tbe topmost wave of popu
larity. 1 erbaps you will say they lucx the
sacred fire. On the coutrarv, tliey possess it
to a greater degree than some of tbeir more
fortunate fellow craftsmen. And yet they
will lie in unknown graves while tbe others
have lofty monuments reared above tuair
heads. I wonder what makes the difference.
Sometimes I think it is enterprise, industry
and tact merely commercial qualities, that
have nothing to do with the intrinsic merit
of a work of art. The Critic.

If you enter Somerset housr through one

In searching for and reading wills it will be
provided on application to the i-ecord keeper.
Passing through two pairs of swing doors
you enter into the public h(Jl, and see at
once arranged on the shelves at the side and
under the desks tbe calendars containing the
lists of the names of the testator whose wills
have been proved, and also t le names of
those persons, dead intestate, o! whose per

There are also mighty vol urnes made of
parchment aud bound in leather, with strong
brass clasps, containing tbe reg stered copies
of wills. It was iu respect of lleso bie books
that the country visitor inquire 1 of the at
tendant whether they were BiLles, connect
ing tbem in her mind with tho big Bible in
the pulpit of her old parish chu -ch. The at
tendant promptly replied: 'No, ma'am,
they're the testaments." Only 11 few of the
most recent of these books are iu the public
hall; the others are kept on e. lower floor,
whence they are brought up when required
to be seen. The volume is place. 1 before you
on one of tbe strong desks, tie attendant
finds the will you have previously searched
for, and you stand there aud rea 1 it. All the
original wills are kept in the t trong room,
which is also on a lower floor. You do not
read these in the public ball, bat go a little
way down the passage, on the lei t, to a room
called the reading room. The Will you have
bespoken is brought to you, and you sit down
to a loug table comfortably to read it, but
always in view of one or two argus eyed
otlicials, who watch carefully that yoo do
not damage the document or U.ke surrepti

There are many persons who believe that
if they had their rights they would be os
sessed of considerable property , and that
their ancestors more or less remote have been
unjustly kept out of great estates or large
sums in chancery. This belief is tbe cause of
a constant flow of visitors to ths will offico,
who delight in reading the will, perhaps 100
or 150 years old, wherein something has been
left to one of their forefathers, or at least to
some one of tbe same name, and, sublimely
oblivious of the statutes of limitation, thereon
build castles in the air. Undoubtedly, if the
money is iu the court of chanc-iry, and if,
notwithstanding the length of time it may
have been there, a person can s low a good
title to it, be will be able to get it; but the
adventurers in search of propel ty begin at
the wrong end. They ignore the Baconian
system of philosophy, and, starting with the
family tradition that there was uce consid
erable property in tbe family, 1. Kk up a lot
of old wills anil waste their time and money
on a speculative possibility of discovering
something they can lay claim to. The pro
fessional Anders out of heirs to unclaimed
property begin at the other end. They start
with the property or fund in t le court of
chancery or elsewhere wanting an owner
and work back until they find the person
w hose claim to it can be suppoi ted. Then
they go to him and make a bargain that if
tbey Bucceed in putting him into possession
they shall receive a proportion ic some cases
as much as one-half of the mom y or estate

TUB FORTUNE HUNTERS
Because a person has been advertised for,
perhaps, 100 years ago or more, w:th tbe sig
nificant addition that if he will a ply as di
rected he will hear of something greatly to
his advantage, it does not follow that if his
representatives now apply they will find
there is something to claim. The advertise
ment may have been issued in respect of
some small dividend under a bankrupt's es
tate, or on the winding up of some company,
or even to find some person who as a wit
ness to a will or other document for tbe pur
pose of obtaining his evidence; tbe man him
self may have come forward at the time and
received his money or given his testimony;
but the advertisement still remains in the old
newspaper, or in the published books of the
collectors of these things, who have no knowl
edge that the object of its beiny is'eu has
long since lieen satisfied. The unhi ppy for
tune seeker buys :he book and finds the name
only; rj; then has to buy a copy of the adver
tisement, then to expend his money and time
in making various searches to prove his de
scent from tbe person advertised for, and
then to trace the people who inserted the ad
vertisement; and after all be may find that
the whole matter was settled years ago. In
some cases years have been spent t.nd small
fortunes wasted in these searches.
Wills sometimes pass through strange vi
cissitudes lief ore being admitted to probate,
and testators are often themselves to blame
for it. They either hide them away so care
fully in such secret repositories tha; at their
deaths they cannot be found, or leave them
about so carelessly that they get con verted to
other purposes or gathered up with the waste
paper and rubbish. The great Lord St. Leon
ards, who bad for several years thoughtfully
considered how be should dispose of his prop
erty, hail left a will, that was certa. n, but it
could not lie found at his death; it Lad been
kept locked up in a box, but wber. the box
was opened the will was not tbete. Tke
court, being satisfied by the evidence of Miss
Sugden of the contents from bor rea llection,
granted probate of tbe will as contiiined iu
her evidence. In one case, a boy seeing his
father's will lying about, aud nucha? it was
writ -n on good, strong paper, cut it into
strips aud made it into a tail for his kite.
These were afterwards carefully placed to
gether, the patchwork state of tbe will was
fully explained, and it was then admitted to
probate. In another case, after having been
lost for a long time, a visit from thee ustman
led to the will being found at tbe bottom of
tbe dusthole. One case that we know of was
not tbe fault of the testator; the executor, at
a public dinner, handed the will to Lis proc
tor to prove, but the will could net after
wards be found. The proctor was 1 ure he
gave it to bis clerk, wbo was just as 1 ure he
never received it; the safes were seirched,
the bundles of paper were undone and shaken
out, and all the drawers were turned t ut, but
tbe will was not forthcoming. Tbe legatees
began to clamor for tbeir money, when luck
ily the proctor went to another dinner, and
on putting his band into his dress coat pocket
pulled out the missing will. London Illus
