A magazine rifle of great power and efficiency has been recently tried at Vienna, with the most successful re sults. Herr Fortelka, the inventor, was a lieutenant in the Austrian army, and during the occupation of Bosnia he re ceived a shot in the left eye, which de stroyed the optic nerve, and by sympa thetic action so affected the other eye that the poor officer, now only 28 years of age, has been blind for the last eight years. Undaunted by such a grave mis fortune, Herr Fortelka devoted himself to mechanical pursuits that required the nicest precision, and during these years he has invented not only a new maga zine rifle, but also two machines for the anti-oxidation of iron, steel and other metals, at a very small cost; further, an apparatus for automatically mapping, a new micrometer, a new sort of gunpow der, not to speak of smaller inventions which found their way into the lesser industrial establishments of Vienna. To an interviewer who expressed his aston ishment at the possibility of devising complicated machines without being able to see the separate parts, the blind inventor said: "I see with my fingers, and not in' one single case have they deceived me. It's really curious that when great or minute measurements are in question, those who see with their eyes are wrong, and I, with the use of my fingers, am right. The models for my machines against oxidation of metals were entirely made by myself from carved wood, with the help of string, wire and bread crumb."

On Saturday, July 2d, a half-caste named Charles Davidson, a student at Lahainaluna Seminary, Lahaina, Maui, accidentally shot himself. It appears on that day he went out shooting with sever il of his classmates in the neighboring woods. He carried a double-barreled shotgun, and loaded it before he started, Reaching the woods a plover came in sight, and Davidson, taking aim, shot and killed it, the bird falling in some thick bushe3. Young Davidson took hold of his gun by the muzzle, and in attempting to clear the thick brush away to get at the bird, the other barrel went off. The shot en tered his abdomen and he fell to the ground. His companions, who were some little distance off, immediately ran to his assistance, and carried him to a shady place. They asked him several questions, bat received no answer, which caused them to become alarmed. He was alive then, but five minutes after wards he breathed his last. Upon ex amination his schoolmates found his bowels protruding, and one of them, ICekipi, put them back in their place. Some natives who were working a fchort distance away were summoned, and they carr!e.l the dead body to" the Seminary. The funeral took place the following day, the remains being in terred in the cemetery. Mr. Hitchcock, the Principal of the Seminary, was absent at Lahaina at the time of the affair. He had alway pro hibited the use of firearms, but it seems the young man took advantage of his absence and went out shooting, with the , above result. j The deceased was about 17 vear's of age, and a bright and intelligent youth. His parents are both dead, but lie was cared for by Mr. Davidson, his foster j father. His nearest relativo is a cousin living at Lahaina. Dr. Kuehn.the Gov ernment physician, was sent for after the shooting, but of course he arrived too late. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The steamer W (Jr. Hall rnav be looked for this morning.

Comparatively Few Men Attacked Noi days A Itule Among Business Men. "Comparatively few men are now at tacked by footpads on the street,' said a gentleman who for the last twenty -five years has made frequent business visits to Chicago. "There was a time before the fire when business men and others coming to the city felt unsafe on the streets, be cause there were frequent instances of men being stopped or knocked down and robbed by vagabonds, who as a rule made their escape. There is less of this now than there was years ago, because men carry less money than they did years ago, when there were few bsnks in the country towns and no good system of exchange or credit. "It is a rule among business men of this era to carry with them mcney enough only for their immediate expenses, and a mprrTinnt. n rlrovfr. nr n tradpr of nnv dnd coming to the city, instead of having thousands of dollars on his person, will havo probably less than a hundred. The footpads have come to understand this, nd they take fewer risks, because they know that the returns will not be sum- ciont to warrant the risk. Hundreds of business men in Chicago make it a rule to carry less money in their pockets than do their employes or the averago working man. This is as much a rule of business as is the depositing of cash in the Ijank at a certain hour. "The effect of the rule is seen in the comparative freedom of the prosperous business man from attack by thugs or street vagabonds. Twenty or more years ago the very opposite was the rule. A man doing a prosperous business felt that he was; called upon to demonstrate the truth of his pretensions or claims by covert or open exhibition of a plethoric pocketbook. Particularly was this the case with men coming to the city with out acquaintance or letters of credit. Their pocketbooks were their certificates of financial standing, and a man who did not have a full pocketbook or who did not exhibit a disposition to spend money freely was not regarded favorably by new business acquaintances. The mere fondness for display of money, the ex ultation in the possession of money, led men to be a little reckless in the display of large bills cr of gold pieces, and men with the heaviest pocketbooks were easily spotted by footpads." Inter Ocean "Curbstone Crayons." The Commune of Paris. But few people are fully aware of the immense proportions which the commune had taken on before its final suppression. Its military strength was simply enor mous. Cluseret told mo of his furnish ing rations, at the true he was delegate to the ministry , of war, to 125,000 sol diers in Paris. And the amount of war material in possession of tho commune at the time of its collapse was prodigious. There were 548,000 guns of different Models, with saber bayonets; 56,000 cavalrv sabers of every form and descrip tion; 14,000 Enfield rifles; "39, 000 revol vers making a total of nearly 700,000 weapons of every kind taken from the liands of the communards. Independently of the vast amount of this particular material, the military au thorities of the commune had 1,700 pieces of cannon and mitrailleuses, which they haa robbed from the city and which they had used with such terrible effect. But what must ever excite amazement is the knowledge of the vast number of people in Paris at this time who not only were in sympathy with the commune, but who abetted and sustained it in its career of crime and blood. The minority, embrac ing the better class of Paris, was com pletely cowed and subdued by this vast insurrectionary mass of population. Ex Jlinister Wasliburne in Scribner's. Examples or Drifting Sands. " Near the sea the sliif ting of sand by the winds is a familiar sigh., and the drifts are often known to encroach on cultivated fields, forests and villages. Striking examples are found on Lako Micliigan, where tho withered tops of a forest are visible above a sand drift, and in Norfolk, England, where farms and houses have been covered. The same phenomenon occurs in deserts, the great sand hills being net only carried about by the wind, but even forced beyond the proper limits of the sandy wastes. The extensive Ilegistan desert, in central Afghanistan, is reported as being steadily pushed northeastwardly, and calculations have shown that its present rate of pro gress will causo it to overwhelm somo of the riost fertile and prosperous districts of tho country in a few thousand years. Arkansaw Traveler. Tlie Queen' Padding. We hear from an acquaintance in Bir mingham that the luncheon table laid for the queen was a thing of beauty. It was set out for four persons, and there were exquisite flowers arranged in vases of Worcester ar d Coalport porcelain, sent by Messrs. Osier, who also provided some wonderful cut glass finger bowls of a sur prising thickness and beauty. It seems odd that the queen of England and Em press of India should have that simple nursery dish, a tapioca pudding, specially prepared for her: but tlx choico i3 at least consistent with the simplicity and home liness of her life. I wonder if the Prince ?f Wales likes tapioca pudding. London Truth. After "Chestnut," tho Hickory. Johnny Hardnut gets about as many whip pings every day as there are school hours, and yesterday the teacher caught him at hia tricks as asual. "You raughty boy.w she said, "if you do M.1 - . , V- ,,--..,, ' i .'hefnut," he reaed i-npudently 'Hickory is better, I think," she renia-'cfi quietly, and gave him aoout half a cor J across tha back. V7asuir.ta Critic London' Strongest Adjective Oath. "Bloody" is the strongest adjective oath in the low street calendars. Yet the word haa a history dating from the days of Queen Elizabeth. When the maiden Queen Bess sat on the throne of England a chivalrous oath of the knights was one in the name of tho queen. Uncovering the head and looking toward her castle they would exclaim, when wishing to in tensify a statement, 'By our Lady Bess. ' ' On the other hand the queen had many enemies among her subjects. These would mutter under their breath in accents of imprecation "Bloody Bess, tho word coined by speaking "by our lady" quickly. Henceforth the adjective indi cated loathing and insult. Low class Londoners do not often swear in the sense of taking God's name in vain. Their swearing is mostly confined to a reckless flinging about of this sanguinary epithet, which I've written with bated breath, so accustomed have I grown to regarding tho word as the veriest leprosy of 6peech. Annie Wakeman in Philadelphia Record. . Etiquette In French Families. The etiquette in the best old families of France as regards young girls is very 6trict. At 17 they begin to bo seen at their mother's "at homes,' but at 18 only they make the debut in society, be ginning with the opera, Lenten recep tions, and what are now generally called bals blancs. The French girl never lias any cards of her own; when she is what they call in England "out" her name is written below her mother's. Tho letters addressed to her aro always delivered first to her parent's hands, who passes them to her opened cr unopened, as she bees fit. She wears no jewels beyond one row of pearls around her neck. She tides early, before tho fashionable hour it tho Eois, escorted by her father; hot brother may take her out driving, and the is even permitted now to take tbx. reins, a liberty which, ten years ago, would have stamped her outrageously fast, frencn girls or almost any rank, including the bourgeoisie, never walk put clone. They marry young ably before 20. Pioneer Press. presum- Two Classes of Newspapers. America's successful newspapers are becoming differentiated into two classes. One class i3 composed of the great, mul tipago morning journals which publish everything, are sold for the cost cr less than the cost of their white paper, and make up their losses on circulation by a copious supply of advertising. The other class comprises trim, neat little papers, which boil down tho news to its final es sence, contain no unnecessary words, and depend upon immense sales for their profits.
