A Powerful Klfle.
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.

FOOTPADS ON THE STREET.
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

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

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.

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

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.
