A RIDE ON A CYCLONE
MIRACULOUS EXPERIENCE OV A UNI
TARIAN MINISTER IN THE MONOT
ESS ORASI'—CAURiEU A HALF MILE
T<> H.ie a half mile through the air
on a cyclone and live to tell the tale is
a unique experience. Yet that is pre
cisely what happened to Rev. A. N.
Somers, Unitarian minister at High
land Springs, a surbnrb of Richmond,
Va. I had the story from Mr. Somers
himself, as told by Juliia Wayattßnll
ard in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
It ran as follows :
"1 bad read and heard much about
cyclones, but mv information wascon
tlictinpr and far from satisfactory. Had
resolved if I ever got near enough one
to investigate for myself. Don't know
that I ever prayed the good Father to
send one my way, but was willing be
should.
"My opportunity came in 1872, I had
gone west to teach school, salaries then
being more than double what they
were in Virginia and forthcoming when
due.
'■It was in Randolph country, India
na, in tbe month of September. The
farmer with whom I boarded was
building a barn and I went out to as
sist the carpenters, it being Saturday
afternoon and nothing doing.
"One of the workmen remarked that
it was good cyclone weather, and just
as we finished shingling one side of the
roof, he shouted, 'Look out boys, there
is a cyclone coming."
(i lancing hastily in the direction he
pointed, 1 saw on the horizon, some five
or six miles distant, amonster as black
as ink and as clear-cut as an Egyptain
pyramid, bowling along a terrific speed.
."Indiana has had many cyclones. In
travelling through the county, one
sees their track in twisted and strewn
timber—trees three feet in diameter
twisted off a feet above ground as if
by giant hands.
There was an old track to the west
of us, and as we watched the cyclone
advance it was painly evident that it
was following the course of its prede
cessors.
"My ignorance and consequent lack
of fear, and my desire to better observe
this wonderful phenomenon, led me to
disregard the advice of my associates
to get off the building.
"Meanwhile the fnnel-shaned mass of
dust and debris grew momentarily
larger. Fascinated, 1 watched it, and
listened spell bound to the crash and
grind of the debris iv its swirl. Fences,
| fragments of buildings, cattle, grain,
timber, hay stacks and, for aught I
knew, human beings enveloped in a
[sable mantel of dust, pounding and
grinding one another to pieces, and
sweeping along with lightning rapidity.
'•My interest was roused to the high
est pitch, when suddenly a chill ran
through me. The raging demon, now
almost opposite us, had suddenly tack
ed,' and leaving the old track at right
angles, was headed towards us.
"There was no time left to get down
aud I was too far from the ground to
drop. So burying my hatchet In the
shingles in such a way aB to get a hold
on one of the lathes underneath. I
stretched myself flat on the roof and
awaited the shock.
"I was none too quick. For imnied."
ately the roof rose on the rim of the
cyclone and sped majestically on its
way in a spiral course til it reached the
top of the swirl—lso feet from the
ground, according to the estimates of
the onlookers.
"The roof remained intact until it
had reached its greatest altitude, and
had traveled on the rim of the cyclone
proper nearly half a mile, when the
corner opposite the one I was on was
drawn into the inside current of the
swirl, and the roof, with a great crash,
went to pieces.
"I had lost my support and was a-,
fl >at in mid-air the victim of the most
terrific power 1 bad ever encountered.
"During all this time, and it was
probably only the fraction ot a minute
though it seemed an age. I was fully
conscious of my position, and was cal
culating on how it would terminate.
I The roar was deafening, and I realized
that if 1 was drawn into the swirl I
would be ground to pieces like theßrist
in a mill. I also speculated that if I
dropped to the ground I should be as
phyxiated before reaching terra flrma.
"To my surprise I did neither, but
kept drifting around what seemed a
circle of a hundred yards in diameter, |
until I settled down to about 75 feet
from the ground.
"Then 1 recognized that I had been
released from the hold of the cyclone
ana was shooting to earth like a rocket
head lirst. I expected to be dashed to
pieces, but suddenly the top of a tree
swain before my vision, and as I plung
ed into it. 1 seized hold of a limb. '
'•The force of the fall was so great
and my grasp so strong that the branch
was torn from the tree and carried with J
me to the ground, a distance of thirty I
feet. My hold on the limb had rever-|
sed my position and I struck the grouDd j
on my feet, sinking deep into the mud)
and gravel of the creek. The cyclone
had swept the water before it in its
passage a moment earlier.
"Pulling myself together, I took an
inventory of my injures. Both legs!
I were broken in two places betweeu the
ankle and knee and my feet were hor
ribly mangled. There were eighteen
fractures at least.
"Dragging myself to the bank 1 cut
j the boot from ray feet with a pocket
I knife, and was making a compreße to
stop the flow of blood—using pieces
torn from my shirt—when friends came
up.
'One of the men attempted to remove
the other boot, hut was so excited he
Icut my foot as much as the boot.
There was no surgeon near and I was
beginning to feel the loss of blood. So
I took the knife and finished the job

STAUNTON, VA;, FRIDAY, JUNE 10,1904.
myself, and also set my own broken
bones, the carpenters making the
splints, having had «»"»« little experi
ence along .this line.
"Strange to say, I felt no pain for a
week, though after that time I suffer
ed acutely. During my ride on the
cyclone and for hours after I seemed
to be under the influence of an electric
shock, which probably paralized the
nerves of feeling. For the same reason
I was unable to let go the hatchet un
til I reached the ground, though I tried
from the moment the roof went to
pieces.
"Looking back over my experience,
it was a miracle I was not killed. The
roof to which I clung rested mainly.
I think, on the anti cyclone, which
consists of heavier, colder, air moving
in an opposule direction from the warm
light air of the cyclone proper. It was
probably this fact which preventedjpe
from being drawn into the vortex arid
crushed to bits.
It was years before 1 recovered en
tirely from my injuries, and I have
been in the track of several cyclones
since, but was not frightened in tbe
least.
Still, I've been content with second
hand information since that first ex
perience, and so far as cyclones are
concerned, I shall nev.er again attempt
original observations.
"I am interested, too, in aerial na
vigation, but prefer a more docile air
ship than a barn roof on the bosom of
a cyclone."

SWEETHEARTS—BILLET DOUX ON A
STRING.
Only in MoselemScountries are wo
men more secluded than in Mexico.
One of the prettiest views I have ever
bad into this inner court of the native
life was one ofjtne first. We had been
up the hill of the'Guadaloupe and seen
the shrine, and were on our way down
to the miraculous well by the stepH
that pass gieat stone walls, and
chanced to admire a little child in the
care of its sister, a girl of 15. The child
was playing with a tiny cup of native
.pottery and insistt d that I take it, and
~#hTle we chatted with them the girl
was paying with a poor, cheap locket
hung by a bead striug around her
plump, roundjneck. She saw that I
noticed it, and with the sweetest shy
ness and an adorable pride showed me
the picture it continued—just a brown
Indian boy in a new somebrero, and
when I had looked at it with question
in my eyes she said almost in a whisper:
"It is my novio."
Novio means lover, and her eyes grew
large and luminous with the word. It
took but little urging to let her pour
out eagerly the whole story. She lived
iv Santa Maria, one of a family of
fourteen. He dwelt in Tacubya and
was a burro boy. He had seen her at
a fiesta and she said she loved him as
soon as she looked in hia face. She had
never seeu him since then except once

her with some clipped verses by a tiny

GAY CLAD PEASANTS.
There is much said of the picture
sque peasantry of Europe, but I doubt
if any one country of them all can af
ford the great variety of dress found
among the women in Mexico, and there
is none of the many dresses but seems
to add to the beauty of the wearer.
This beauty is not for long, for they
mature early and begin to fade when a
woman of the United Statesjwould be
considered in her prime.
One day as I was walking along the
side street in the best residence portion
of Merida I saw a bit of paper dangl
ing from the end of a string that led up
over a balcony and into a window, the
shutter of which was almost entirely
closed, only a bare crack being visible.
The string jerked just t the least bit,
causing the paper to bob up and down.
1 turned as if to cross the street for
closer observation. Instantly the pa
per which I was convinced was a note
was drawn up. and I retired to the next
corner.lwhere I pausedia few moments
out of sheer curiosity to see what would
happen. The note was lowered again,
aud soon there came sauntering by a
handsome young man in "cnorro" cos
tume, semething unusual in the State
As he passed under theCbaleony he
whipped out a knife and servered the
string, put the note;in his hat and sauu
tered on.
Some of tbe'.most beantif nl women of
Mexico are to Ibe found, among tbe
Indians.of the Tehuantepec Isthmus.
There on Sundays one will see hun
dreds of pretty church-goers wearing
most extraordinary costumes. The
skirt is often of satin or silk, heavily
lace trimmed sometimes and with a
short-sleeved waist. The headdress is
the principal feature. It is a great
s'.iff laundered accordeon plaited sort
of thing that can look very pretty and

wear white cotton garments, on wbich
the embroidery is done in panels either
down the front of the woman's skirt
or on tbe tunic the men wear. There
is a curious custom among them of
lovers exchanging the twigs of certain
trees in entire secrecy, except as each
new twig is received it is carried lo the
father or mother or guardian of each
of the two, and assent is given to the
continuance of the exchange till or
ange blossoms are readied ; then it is
time for the priest. This pretty meth
od of courting is dying out, and it is a
relic of Indian customs and is dis
couraged by the priests.
In nearly all parts of the country the
lover's process is the same. It is call
ed "playing bear," and is of Spanish
extraction. Of course, it is not neccs
r ary to play bear in those classes where
the young folks are thrown together
in the market, the field, the workroom
and the highway, but even there a|close
watch is kept on tbe girls and conver
ation with their adorers is fragmen
tary.

possibly an elder member of the young

HOW GUNS ARE MADE
One Thousand Two Hundred Operations
To Make 95 Parts.
The stock and forearm reach the fac
tory from the sawmill, cut in the bare
outline of the part to be made. The
wood is chiefly of American growth,
black walnnt predominating, and the
best grades go. naturally, to the gun
t ictories. It is seasoned sometimes
for three years. The first lathe it
reaches, which cleverly compels tbe
cutting tool to follow any sort of ir
regular pattern by means of a revolv
ing model that automatically guides
it, completely shapes the gun stock as
you'see it. After that other lathes
attend to the digging out of the bed
for the lock plate, inserting the prop
er holes and notches and sills for
magazine, mountings, lock and butt
plate. Tbe smoothing down of the
roughened surface and subsebuent
polishing and varnishing are all ma
chine done, hut the checking is dexter
ously filed out line by line by young
women.
It Is enticingly claimed for some guns
that the sportsman needs only a screw
driver with which to take the arm
apart for cleaning and repairs. This
speaks well for simplicity. It has
taken upward of 1,200 operations to
make an entire gun of about 95 parts,
of which most are contained in the re
ceiver. To make these parts speciel
machines, or, more accurately, in
many cases, special tools to fit ma
chines, have been devised by each
factory. The steel comes in from the
foundry, like the wood from the mill,
roughly shaped to its purpose. Tbe
forges grab these pieces when at white
heat, pound them into submission and
better shape for the work ahead, and
pass them along to the machine room.
These machines are many and varied
and are in charge of men who become
expert in their particular lines, and
when the miller and edger, the borer
and threader, the groover and polish
er have each had its turn at those
pieces of metal they go by tray and
boxful to the assembling room.—Out
ing Magazine.
"It is the little rift wltnln tne lute which
over widening, makes the music mute." It
is just a little rift in the health of a woman
often, which gradually takes the spring
from her step, the light from her eyes, the
rose from her cheek and the music from her
voice. Perhaps the bug bear which has
frightened the woman from the timely help
needed at the beginning has been the dread
ed questions, the obnoxious examination,
the local treatments, of the home physician.
There is no need for these. Nor is there need
for continued suffering. Dr. Pierces Favor
ite Prescription can be relied on by every
woman, suffering from what are called "fe
male troubles," to renew the health and euro
