Destructive German Artillery.
So destructive in its effect is the new
German artillery that it is asserted, onca
the range were found, a battery would
annihilate an entire division in a very
short time. Prima facie, this seems rath
er to border on the impossible, but when
the results ofthe experiments which
were recently made in the presence of the
emperor with ttie new weapons are con
sidered the task does not appear to be so
impracticable after all. The first shot
fired in the coarse of these experiments
was at a target placed CO paces from a
wood. The missile missed the target,
but plowed its way for 500 yards through
the wood. Shortly, afterward a large area
of the wood was discovered to be on fire.
This was due to the shell being charged
with a certain kind of powder, the com
position of which is a secret known only
to the German government.
The splinters from shells burst by
this powder and fired by the new gun
cover a circle of 900 feet. This is a great
improvement on the limited area of
ground that was covered by splinters
from shells fired by the artillery weapon
of 20 years ago. Then it was considered
effective shooting if splinters from a
shell were thrown within a circuit of 40
r 50 paces and seven or eight men
wounded, but the new gun has a far
greater destructive power than this.
Another shell fired at an enormous tar
get, constructed by the emperor's or
ders, covered it with thousands of holes.

There are a few points in regard to the
Umbriii breakdown, from an engineer
ing point of view, which might not ap
peal to the ordinary observer. Engineer
Tomlinson got a great deal of credit for
repairing the shaft, whereas a consider
able part of the credit was duo him and
his assistants for their cautions watch
fulness of all the machinery. Reports
show that the shaft was not entirely
broken off the fracture was not com
plete. It had been noticed that it was
not working smoothly, and the cap was
taken off the thrust bearing and the flaw
The mending consisted of strengthen
ing the parts so that the fracture could
not become any greater, and this was
practicable, while if the break had been
complete and the solid part had made
one revolution against the broken- off
end of the other part repairs would havo
become almost, if not quite, impossible
with the facilities on board the ship.
Our engineer friends who in the future
ma j' stand in danger of being called upon
to mend a broken shaft may well beai
in mind, therefore, that to discover a
fracture before the shaft breaks goes a
long way toward successful repair. Ma
Forbidden to Visit Mary's Tomb.
Several lady and gentlemen Jacobites
visited Westminster abbey on the anni
versary of the decapitation of Mary,
queen of Scots, for the purpose of plac
ing upon her tomb wreaths of flowers.
But the dean had given orders that there
was to be no admittance to the aisle of
King Henry VII's chapel and the "Le
gitimists" and "White Roseists" were
therefore compelled to pay their homage
from a distance and to content them
selves with repeating the "Adoro, im
X'loro, et lilera.s me" supposed to havo
been written by the unhappy sovereign
on the eve of her death outside the iron
gates. The demonstrauts made no un
seemly disturbance, as they did last
year, when told that their intentions
could not be realized.bnt quietly tramped
with their flowers and wreaths through
the muddy streets to the statue of
Charles I at Charing Cross and placed
their memorial emblems around the feet
of that equally unfortunate monarch's
horse. London Telegraph.
The Oldest Pear Tree In New England.
The will of the late William Endicott,
who died in Salem, Mass., July 3 last,
which was probated in London, lias been
filed in Salem for reference. The be
quests are all private, but the famous
old orchard at DanverS is bequeathed to
W. C. Endicott, Jr. The farm is widely
known on account of a pear tree, now in
a fairly vigorous condition, which was
planted by Governor Endicott in 1630.
Over one bushel of fruit was harvested
from the tree last year. Of all the host
of thrifty trees, the pride of the govern
or's heart, whose number gave to the
manor of 300 acres the name of "Orchard
Farm" two centuries or moro ago, this
venerable tree alone remains. It is un
doubtedly the oldest pear tree in New
England, and it is doubtful if it has a
rival in the United States. Pittsburg
The White City.
The "White City," as the World's fair
grounds and buildings are termed, has
the equipment of a model municipality.
It has a combined water capacity of 54,
000,000 gallons a day and will soon have

mains and 291 hydrants. A hundred
more will be provided. There are 3 steam
fire engines, 4 chemical engines, a ladder
truck, water tower, 40 hose carts, 26,750
feet of hose, 1 ,050 hand fire extinguishers,
2,500 fire pails, a steam fireboat, 65 fire
men, 150 alarm boxes, 150 patrol tele
phones, 500 guards, complete electric light
and sewerage systems, etc. By tho time
the fair opens many of these facilities
and equipments will be greatly increased
and perfected. Philadelphia Ledger.
A Singular Woman.
An inmate of the poorhonse at Peru,
Ind., who died a short time ago, was
about 43 years old and was born, it is
6aid, with almostvery peculiarity of a

head from one Bide to the other almost
continually. It is further reported that
6he was never able to walk. St. Louis
