. ly JEOx O1. A BULLET.
#oereosed Veloolty Doeg Net Tend te Make Them Less Dangeroen. A resent post mortem examinatione of the Sody of a soldier who was eeoidentally killed in the neighborhood of the Vien.s ersenal by a shot from a Mannlieher rifle has throwa new light on the offsets pro ueoed by that weapon. It was geoneralli blieved, on surgical authority, that wound eaused by a ballet from this rifle, owing to its inereased veloeity, would be lesr asngerous, and in particular, would be frer from the compliontions eaused by splin tered bene. Aoeording to the post morteo examination just held this theory seemes t be erroneous. The baleLt in this instanee bead eted almost like an explosive. The steel covering broke of from the leaden core, and owing to the arest speed at which it entered the body, worked itself a wide passage, and when found was quite flat. 'he leaden part made a separate and indes pendent channel, the two together forming an absolut ly fatal wound. It is thought possible that the terrible effect of this lnar tioular bullet when flied at such a she a distance may be due to some imperfection in the manufacture, and that other missiles may not differently, but the plausibility ot the nsugestion is ecarcely strong enough to afford much enoonraRem6nt.-Chicago Tri bune.

Large bottles only 50 cents at H. ML Par shen & Co.'s drug store. Footbindlug Among Chinese. Proof that the Chinese woman is not a labor-burdened slave is found in the sea tom of fcotbinding. This heathenish at tempt to improve on God's best work of creation is said by one tradition to have begun with P'an Fei, a concubine of the Ch'i dynasty, 501 A. D., and by another to have begun with Yas Niang, a beautiful conoubine of the last emperor of the South rn 'l'ang dynasty, 975 A. D., whose fret were "cramped in the semblance of a new moon." Tradition also says that it origi nated with a beAutiful princess who had club feet, and by resorting to this method completely concealed her deformity. Still another tradition says it was resorted to by a crusty husband to keep his wife from "aoingla-gadding," and as it worked so well it was resor ted to by others until, be coming a fashion, it was adopted by all. Wherever the custom may have originated, HIarper's Eazar regards it as but very little worse than the custon of ladies lacing in civilized countries, and adds as little in beauty to the person on whom it is prao tioed. tihe beat evidence attributes it to Yea Niana.
