A FRIEND IN NEED.
"A friend in need is a friend inJeed,"
Whichever way you take it,
Like a legal writ or a moral creed,
It means whate'er you make it.
A friend in need may be one, indeed,
Who clothe3 you when you're seedy,
Bnt it's likewise true that a friend in need
la also one who's needy.
And on this depend, as your way you wend.
Through a world of joy and sorrow.
That for ev'ry one who may come to lend,
A thousand come to borrow.
Th. Armored War Ship VltM.
A French marine officer argues in The
Nouveile Review that the armor-clad 6hip
is as completely obsolete as the old three
decker, and in any future war no iron
clad should venture to put to sea till all
her opponent s torpedo boats had been de
stroy ed For this reason no more money
should be spent on the construction or
keeping up of armor clad vessels, and
even those in progress should be aban
doned. The best type of boat is one al
most invisible, and quicker than the
largest seagoing vessels. France pos
sesses several that have proved themselves
very successful, but should have at
least 400. . .
Those existing are registered at forty-six
tons, and carry coal for 1,000 miles at
: medium speed. In case of need they could
steam twenty two knots per hour, are
ormed -with four tornedoes. and cost $33,-
000 each. Ten vessels somewhat larger
are now being constructed. The best type
of sea going torpedo boat should be about
1SJ1 feet long or less, and about twelve
feet wide; she should be manned by
fifteen or eighteen men, should carry pro
visions for twelve to fifteen days, and coal
for 1.000 to 2,000 miJss. She should be
able to steam twenty-two to twenty
five miles an hour, and be
armed with six or eight torpedoes and
one machine gun. The cost would be
from loO.OOO to $75,000. As a great na
tion's Heet should not consist entirely or
torpedo boats, however, concession 13
made in favor of vessels auxiliary to them,
but it will be the part of the torped. '.oat
in case of war to sweep all vessels of the
enemy whatever from the surface of the
ocean, both iron-clads, cruisers, trans
d merchant vessels, and this mis
sion it will perform without let or hin
derance. The fleets of transports, packed
with troops, will fall an especially easy
The Farmer Ants of Texas.
Dr. Lincecum, of Texan fame, has
even improved upon Solomon by his dis
covery of these still more interesting and
curious creatures, the agricultural ants of
Texas. America i3 essentially a farming
country, and the ajrricultnral ants are
born farmers. They make regular clear
ings around their nests, and on these
clearings ey allow nothing to grow ex
cept a particular kind of grain, known as
anti-rice. Dr. Lincecum maintains that
the tiny farmers actually sow and culti
vate the antirica Dr. McCook,
on the other hand, is of opinion
that the rice sows itself and that
the insects' part is limited to pre
venting any other plants of weeds from
encroaching on the appropriated area, In
any case be they squatters or planters, it
is certain that the rice, when rfpe, is duly
harvested, and that it is, to say the least,
encouraged by the ants to the exclusion of
all other competitors.
"After the maturing and harvesting ot
the seed. " says Dr. Lincecum "the dry
stubble is cut away and removed from the
pavement, which is thus left fallow until
the ensuing autumn, when the same
species of grass, and in the same circle,
appears again, and receives the same agri
cultural care as did the previous crop.
Sir John Lubbock, indeed, goes so far as
to say that the three stages of human
hn hunter, the herdsman and
th3 agriculturist are all to be found .

The Proofreader and th. Poem.
IDes Moines Register.
Some writer has produced a poem
called "Sounds from the Sanctum." It
reads just to pretty, and gives readers the
thought that the author never visited the
sanctum when business was in full blast.
If he had called about midnight, for in
stance, he would have seen two saints, one
poring over a proof slip, the other holding
the cop-, and the sounds would have
been something like this: Proofreader
As flowers without the sunshine fair--comma
so comma without you do I
full stop breathe a dark and dismal
malr Copy-holder Thunder! Not
mair, air. Proofreader I breathe a dark
and 'dismal air comma of flowers
