The explosion was felt throughout
the camp rocking houses and causing
the inhabitants to believe that an
earthquake had visited that section,

Five Weeks in Bed With Intensely

Rajah’a Unique Conveyance.
While amphibious vehicles are not
in themselves a novelty, it is safe to
declare the combination conveyance
just built in England for an Indian
maharajah as absolutely unique. The
body, shaped like a boat and painted
in rainbow hues in accordance with
eastern ideas’of color, is hung upon
a four-wheeled skeleton carriage.
While intended by its owner as a state
carriage, it may be used on occasions
as a state boat, as the body can be
unslung and converted into an electric
launch. The skeleton carriage is
about 15 feet long and is provided
with four rubber-tired wheels. There
is a seat for a driver and room for
four in the boat-shaped coach. The
