The Incident that I am going to
relate happened four or five years
ago, but nevertheless the memory is
still fresh in my miud-and always
will be.
"Say, to-morrow is Christmas
let's havo a big gun, Leon," said my
brother, Luke.
"But bow aro you going to work
it?" I asked.
"That's easy," Luke answered.
"You know that wo have some blast
ing powder here."
"ves, bu?, what's blasting powder
got to do with a big gun?" I asked.
"Well, you see I am going to load
up that old musket with an extra
heavy load of it," he answered. "You
can load up your .2 2 rifle and we'll
surely have a big gun," he suggested.
We got up early the next morning,*
but al! this time I was a bit skepti
cal, yet I said nothing, as 1 wanted
to'see the results.
Luke loaded up the old musket all
right, but he didn't put much powder
in it. So the result was that it just
spit fire, and that wa:; all.
This gavo lilm courage, and he put
a handful of powder in the old mus
ket and packod a wad of paper down
on it. This timo lt made a racket
like a blast.
This pleased mo, and after seeing
that it didn't hurt him I decided 1
would try it. I took the bullet out
of a cartridge and filled the gun half
full of powder and packed a wad
down oa it. Something told me that
tho gun was going to burst, but I
was determined that 1 would shoot
I put tho gun to my shoulder, shut
my eyes and pullod tho trigger. Lot

for about twelve months.

more, and if you will take my nd

An Interesting experiment in freak
rifle shooting was described recently
by nu English ofllcer. "I hnve fired an
ordinary wax candle through four

said. "Lused six inches of wax enndio
und thirty-three grains of powder with
the usual wads. The shot was removed
by cutting off the top half-inch of the
case, and a cnndle weighing ono and
a quarter ounces was inserted. I fired
at a range of about five yards. Each
plank was perforated. There wore
plenty of pieces of dry wnx on all tho
boards, but tho first. When fired
