A Nevr Self Loading Pistol TVfelcl Can
lie Fired aa Many as 30
Times a Mlaate
The self loading pistol invented by
Herr Paul Mauser is meeting with a
large sale in England India and South
Africa The fact that a skillful man
can fire six or seven shotr per second
with it renders it a formidable rlralto
tho revolver The pistol is very com
pact in form the magazine being quite
Sat and it Is therefore easily portable
The magazines are of two kinds to hold
six and ten cartridges respectively In
action tho force of the recoil opens the
mechanism of the breech ejects the
empty cartridge case cocks the ham
mer introduces a new cartridge into
the chamber and closes and locks the
breech the shooter having only to aim
press the trigger and reload after six
or ten shots according to the capacity
of the magazine So much of the re
coil Ib utilized In this way that there Is
i 1 V WS n

scarcely any shock to the hand and the
barrel very nearly maintainfl its origin
al direction The mechanism Is simple
and perfect so that when the magazine
is filled tho piece is ready to fire with
out further manipulation and whenlt
is emptied the shooter is notified by the
action remaining open
Another popular form of magazine
pistol is known as the Bergman which
in skillful hands can be fired 30 times
a minute The cartridges are inserted
five at a time and if desired another
empty cartridge can be carried in tho
barrel The weapon Is self cocking and
the spent cartridge is ejected automat
Queer Maalclpal Order
At Schkendltz in Prussian Saxony
the burgomaster recently gave orders
that on Sunday people should dress in
a manner befitting the day and when
a mechanic appeared in the streets in
his everyday working dress he was ar
rested and condemned to a fine of three
marks or one days imprisonment Tho
decision was set aside on appeal but
tho court admonished tho culprit that
he was an Insensate dolt and that the
grace of the Lord was not In him The
tribunal evidently leaned to the con
viction that he had got what ho de
served though the letter of tho law
did not sustain the penalty
