Watch STEANGE SOUNDS. GUNS OF BURRISAUL AND OTHER MYSTIFYING PHENOMENA. Kolao Made by Natural Causes For Whir Ko Explaawtlon Baa Ever Beea Found. Faanows Sounds la Tariowa Parts of Uae Carth Have Scared Many. Of strange sounds which probably de pend on meteorological or other natural caosea, one of the most retnarkablo baa long been known as "the guns of Bnr risanl," but though ite canses have long been debated no accurate explanation has been given, so far as we are aware, that is thoronghly satisfactory. The Sunderbunds-as the delta of the Ganges in native dialect is called is covered with a vast and luxuriant jungle of marshy vegetation. One of the stations is named BurrisanL From here, in the rainy season, have long been heard mys terious sounds resembling tho discharge of artillery, and therefore popularly named 'the guns of Bnrrisaul." Only heard in the rainy season and from the southward, they have been heard 100 miles off, yet on the coast it self they appear still farther south. The sounds resemble the booming of cannon. Mussulman and Hindoo superstitions have each associated the sounds with their religions traditions. Others have thought the sounds were produced by the breaking of the sea on an island in the bay of Bengal But where? That some atraocpheric or meteorological ranse is the explanation is all that can be said after hearing all arguments. A much humbler yet ancient instance of great local interest used to exist, we believe, at Baddeley, in the New forest, in the shape of a groaning tree. Whettier it still lives and groans we are uncer tain, but it is said to have uttered mys terious and lugubrious sounds at certain times, probably dependent on wind or weather, but full of omen and import to past generations. Indeed in the various mysteries which, despite fin de siecle acuteness, still surround us, eerie noises have always played a most conspicuous part, whether ont of doors or within ancient houses. Instances of the latter, indeed, abound. Some of the most thrill ing of inexplicable ghost stories turn not on anything which has appalled the eyes, but has "distilled horror" through the ears. It is, we believe, in East An glia that the shrieks heard from time to time round certain pits have long beeu a tradition in which a fomale phantom has part. The "drummer of Ted worth's" phan tom sounds are so well known from Aubrey and more modern desc fibers as only to need allusion, but we may here say that, according to n communication in a popular j.eriodical some few year back, similar sounds had recently, com paratively speaking, been heard in the locality, and by peoplo of most practical disposition. These may bo called phan torn sounds. Returning again to those which hover on the border line between the natural and inexplicable, there is th wild strain as of weird music which has been heard aboard ships when getting within tho circle of a Mozambique cy clone. One of the same kind, formerly mys terious and thrilling enough, has been resolved into a natural one. Early trav elers through the primeval forests of Brazil still among the few unexplored places of the globe; were astonished and awed to hear tho distant resonant sound of a bell pealing from the depths of the woods, which certainly had no building and for ages had known no human foot step. Many a legend was woven round the strange sound. Ultimately it was discovered to be the note of the bell bird. There are, however, few mysterious sounds which have been as satisfactorily explained as this. For instance, there is the legend of the sounds heard at times on the plains of Marathon, the clash of weapons, the snorting of horses, the "shouting of the slayers and screeching of the slain," which recall to memory tho famous battle that lives so much more vividly than many modern ones in the history of the world. Of course there arc many instances of sounds which, at first mysterious, become so re ally from the distance over which they traveled, but these must be distinguished from those which are onr theme. One of the most interesting examples rests on the authority of the late Sir Ed mund Head, who remembered when a boy going to church on the famous "Waterloo Sunday," June 18, 1815, at Hythe, in Kent. His father and he, on arriving at the church at 1 1 a. m found to their surpriso tho congregation out side listening intently to the faint souiid as of distant cannon coming from the cast. Afterward it was ascertained that Napoleon having, on the (for him) un fortunate r.dvice of his artillery officers, who pleaded the state of the ground, waited till 11 to commence his fire, the first Freneh gun was tired as the Nivelles church clock struck 11. Nor was Hythe the only place where tho French cannon were heard in England. Here, however, is fact dependent on the by no means remarkable axiom that sound under certain conditions travels enormous distances. But the sounds of which we speak for the most part have puzzled all who have attempted to ex plain them and lie indeed in that vague region which is inexplicable. Such is the sound of tho "Airlie drum," sucharo the wailing of the banshee in some parts of Ireland. New York Post. Narrow, bwt CeefuL The good lady was going around among a lot of poor people distributing all manner of old clothes which were gratefully received, when she met a newspaper man looking for a clew to a killing case. "Charity covereth a multitude of ans," he said sarcastically. "Well, that isn't what I'm looking for," she responded. "Nor and he looked surprised. "No." she said, "my mission is a little narrower than that. We cut it down to charity covereth a multitude of skins." Detroit Free Press. BRIEF MENTION. Pay your water rent.

Salvlnl. The night of May 24 will be de voted to a magnificent production at the Burtis opera house by the Alex ander Salvini company, of so com plete and lavish a nature that the auditor will be transformed from his every day surroundings to those dear old days of chilvalry and romance, made famous by such literary giants as Victor Hugo and Dumas, whose word paintings have stimulated the ambition and tired the zeal of innum erable feeble imitators to compete with them in their graphic descrip tions of times and places and scenes of bravery that have now been rele gated to the past. The transforma tion of the grand heroes made so fa mous by such brilliant writers into living breathing humans, requires more than imitation; more than the routine machanism of stragecraft; requires not only the genius of the central figures of each story, but the untiring, ceaseless pursuit of detail and history. To the man who di rects the various characters that are to be endowed with life and anima tion must belong those rare qualities given to such a few patience, a thorough knowledge of his art, a keen insight into the conception of the author and the executive ability to transmit his intelligence to those who look to him for guidance and in struction. The task seems almost herculanean, vet Mr. Salvini has exe cuted it in such a thorough manner that the integrity of his performances in every detail has received the uc stinted indorsement of the theatrical critic wherever he has appeared. The piay selected ior Mr. Salvinrs en gagement will be -'The. Three Guards men." Nervous Dyspepsia. "I had what some of thn rinctnra call nervous dyspepsia.
