THF PANICKY MAN.
ever there's trouble in this thing or
' - that,
No matter how distant the place,
When somebody says that finances are flat,
Or that war-eigns are easy to trace,
fTe average person would stick to his task.
Still doing the best that he can
to keep things as well as its reason to ash
But along comes the panicky man.
With significant looks and a voice that is low
He hints at disheartening things;
Es "You mightn't have thought it, but now, 1
don't you know-"
In mournfullest minor he sings.
Though full of good cheer and contentmer.t f
Your task for the day you began,
You'll presently almost regret you were
For along comes the panicky man.
Shall people be led by the raven whose note
Is the moaning of idle despair?
Shall mere puny Terror take Thrift by the
And Courage her mission forbear?
Not so ; for the public is wiser to-day;
It has hit on a different plan,
For 'tis well understood that the sensible way
Is to sit on the panicky man.
Killed by Moccasin Snakes.
Minnie Hightower, the sixteen-yeat.
old daughter of Hiram Hightower, a
trapper and fisherman, who lives on
Horseshoe Lake, in the St. Francie I
bottoms, Arkansas, was killed by mo- c
casin snakes the other day in a singulau i
and horrible manner. The story w it
told by a man who saw her body, The
moccasin snake loses its vision almosi
entirely during the month of August,
just before it sheds its skin. During
the period of blindness the reptile ii
very vicious and strikes at every noif e. E
Horseshoe Lake is noted for the nu:.
ber of snakes to be found in its wateri <
and along the banks. Miss Hightower c
had killed hundreds of the snakes dur. i
ing her life, which was spent on and I
near the lake, and had little fear o
them. She paddled her canoe to -9
drift of logs in the middle of the lake
for the purpose of fishing. There was
\ no one at home but her brother, aged
six years, Hightower having gone to
the head of the lake with the only
,other boat they had.
When Hightower returned at noon
he found the boy running up and down
the shore of the lake crying. The child
said Minnie got on the drift and fished
for a few minutes, then began to beat
something with a pole and scream.
Then she fell down. Hightower looked
toward the drift and could see his
daughter's body. He paddled quickly I
to the island of logs, which is not I
more than 100 yards from the bank.
Lying on the logs was the girl, dead,
swollen and discolored almost beyond
recognition. Hightower counted seven
large moccasins coiled on and around
the body. She was barefooted and the i
marks of the serpents' fangs were on
her fe6e, face and neck. It wasapparent
that the girl had found a colony of
snakes on the drift pile and that while
she 'was killing one others had bitten
her on the feet. She fainted from paint
and fright and the reptiles sank theirt
fangs into her face and neck. The 1
snakes showed do dispsition to retreat
~^when -~'~df~e approzenett
They coiled and struck at him as soon1
as he, set foft on the logs. He dis
patched two with his paddle, then, as
the remaining five did not retreat, he1
got a long pole ind thrashed them to
death. It took him nearly an hour tc
recover the body of his child from the
snake-intested wood drift pile.-Chi
An Immense Drill.4
There has lately been constructed at
one of the Massachusetts establish
ments for manufacturing machinists'
tools, drills and general iron working
machinery, a massive radial drill of
immense proportions, pronounced to
be the largest of its kind in the United
States, and of correspondingly super
ior workmanship for operations on so
rast a scale. The radial drill weighs
some 30,000 pounds, is sixteen feet
from top to base, and has a radial arm
eight and one-half feet long. By means
of this powerful mechanism a hole
five inches in diameter can be bored
and a hole drilled to the centre of a
circle thirteen feet in diameter, and,
though the machine is designated for
secomplishing the heaviest description
of work, it is so constructed that one
knan can operate it. There is mechan
ism for moving the radial arm, and
the head is moved by a spiral gearing
with a quick and easy motion. The
- machina is alsoadapted to giving from
three to ten different speds.-Detroit
An interesting discovery has been
miade by two young chemists of Lon
don which will doubtless have a very
important bearing on the manufacture
of cotton. Cotton waste is trans
formed by a new process into nitrate
of cellulose, and cotton fabrics can be
covered with a solution of it which w'.11
add materially to the weight, streng-,h
and value of the material. Thin,
lightweight fabrics can be filled up
with thispreparation, which costs little
more than sizing -and fuller's earth. I
The cellulose thus prepared is also ap
plcbeto many different purposes.'
Th otis very little more .than the
raw material, being cheap and the
p rocess of manufacture inexpensive. --
