' Buy Now and Mail Your Package Early The patent for the machine of de struction since called the G&tnhg gun was granted to Richard Jordan Gatling by the United States patent office fifty-six years ago today, Dec 5, 1861. Gatling, a native of North Carolina, had several other Inventions to his credit when. In that year, at the age of forty-three, he conceived the Idea of a revolving battery gun. He constructed six of the machines at Cincinnati, but they were destroyed by fire which burned the factory. Af terward he made twelve more, which were used with good effect by Gen. Butler on the James River. In 1865 he Improved his invention, and in the following year it was adopted into the United States service, although re jected at the same time by the Brit ish government. . Aftw several years spent In further perfecting his for midable weapon, Gatling had the sat isfaction of seeing it adopted by near ly all the armies of the world. Since Catling's death in 190S other inven tors have further; improved his ma chine, and its. death dealing capacities have been fully proved in this as in all wars Within the past twenty years. The machine gun which Is now being -used by the United States and by the British forces In France Is the Lewis gen. j This is a vast Improvement oyer the Gatling gun, being easily handled by one man... The latter weapon is also the Invention of an American, an army officer. The United States g.-vernment, however, Was not the first to recognize the- value pf this weapon, despite the fact that it was first submitted to the army authori ties at Washington. -The British army leaders at. once recognized the Lewis-gun as the most practical of its kind and adopted It for che British army.' 1 Give an Umbrella and Be Showered . . with Thanks Men's Cotton Umbrellas, $1.15 to $2.50.

Ha hangs on to sanity by a hair, and doubtless any alienist would say that that hair .was imaginary. A base ball game oivfootball contest or box ing bout areeach a matter of min utes, i The bona fide bicycle buig, however, sits on a hard bench twice around the clock, glaring with glassy eyes at the riders as they circle the saucer, and now and then emits wild shrieks as his favorite makes a. spurt. The six day bike fan is entitled to the medal for endurance or a padded cell, as cording to the point of view. The "six-day bug is prevalent In most of the large cities of the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia, but he is most prevalent In New York, where the annual grind, the American .classic of six-day. bicycling, starts at midnight on Sunday. Many of the old-timors will be missing this year, the war having taken several of them for more serious pursuits, or else led them to their death, Many of the veterans have been cir cling the saucer track for a decade or more, and the strenuous game has apparently had none of the terrible physical and mental effects predicted by the doctors when the six-day grind first became popular. Most of the regulars make an annual trip arouuJ the elronit in America, and they did In Europe before the war, and are ready to begin another grind after resting a- week. ,Ave Jburnitiire I Will speak voiar srood wishes.
