The biggest piece oi artillery ever
made by Krupp Is a forty-centimetre
gun Just finished at Essen, The effect
of a shot from this gun is said to be
(be most destructive known. The
(hot easily pierces the most strongly
armored iron-clad at a close distance.
It also passes clean through an
armor-plate of ninety-seven centi
metres thickness at a distance of
3000 feet. Another of Krupp's latest
productions, a quick-firing gun on
the pivot system, Is also very highly
spoken of, its performances being
puch that no torpedo boat could pos
sibly withstand it or escape.
A great cruelty is often inflicted in
shutting up bens that want to sit,
says one who has had experience. I
have heard women say that they had
shut them up in a bairel, or some
dark place, for five or sit days with
out food or drink. When let out
they are so weak they could hardly
Walk. I have uo trouble iu "break
ing" my hens. As soon as one shows
an undue disposition to sit I cover
her or fix her nest so that she cannot
get to it. If that fails she is put into
a coop, made of narrow slats, and
stuffed with food Instead of starved.

An amusing story is going about
England With the' Archdeacon of
Winchester for Us hero, A few days
since the archdeacon took a party of
ladles over the cathedral, and, having
entered the sacred edifice, put the
key in his archdeucoual pocket; The
organ happened to be Under repair;
and some of the pipes were lying
about. The archdeacon is a small
man, and his evil genius prompted
him to give his friends a practical
illustration either of his own small
ness or the vast diiuensons of the
pipes, by crawling into it. But either
the arobdeacon was bigger than he
supposed or the pipe was smaller; for
having screwed himself inBide, there
the reverend gentleman stuck. The
key of the church being in bis pocket,
and the ladies being unable to extract
him, the archdeacon had to remain
there till the workmttn came ba£k
from dinner.
Self-Winding Clnelta.
It Is curious what a revolution in

that do such plan hail been adapted

And I fancy the clock which winds

complete Change in the clock trade.
The invention is very ingebious. Tile

_ O. Hunter,
C. R. Boyce, !
It Is a pleasure, indeed/ to note the
spirit and determination to make a
living at home, which has been dis
played by the fanners iu our county
this year. In fact, everybody have
put a shoulder to the wheel with uu
apparent desire to push up the hill of
success, and shove oil' the yoke Of
credit and mortgage and climb up to
a level of independence. This Is
evidenced by the interest manifested
iu raising stock, In growing grain
and In making Colton a surplus. Nu
doubt many have not lived in luxury
in making this step, but tlie blessiugs
of their efforts will soon be returned
to them in ten fold, and by economi
cal management, the farming inter
est of thb Mouth Will he the most
profitable of all avocations, and, as a
class, tho most independent and
happy. You are on the right road
keep in the middle and go forward.

The governor of Texas, lijt procla

citizens of that Btate to turn their
attention to the enforcement b'f the
law. He offers a reward of $1000 tbr
each train robber, $500 for each mem
ber of a mob, and $250 for every per
who engages in an ubltiwful
conspiracy of any description. Con
sidering the plentiful supply of this
sort of game in that section, it will
pay bettea to hunt with the state
authorities than It Will to engsige in
