GUNS OF BURRISAUL AND OTHER
Kolao Made by Natural Causes For Whir

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
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.

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."

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
