THOUGHT "GUN" WAS DRAWN
Western Bad Man Deceived by Po
sition In Which His Enemy Hap
pened to Have Hand.
Tazewell Woody, famous as Colonel
Roosevelt's guide in the West, was
standing lit a saloon with left elbow
on the bar, right hand hanging by his
side, and eyes luckily pointed at the
mirror behind the bar. lie caught in
the mirror the reflection of a head
poke(d moetaratuiily lite, the saloon's
doorway, and litionging to a notan who
lad pibilely stiated hIs )urpose of kill
Ing Woody at sight. This man hav
ing it paretly thought the t'oast to
be ch'ar, and that tile saloon con
tailled a stullicielnt audilence, t iraeid his
horse, rode through the doorway, and
boldly said: "llas any gent here seen
tha11t f'iler Woody? I'm huntin' for
him." At that instant the man real
ized, for the flist ime, that Woody.
was in the room, and ho realized also
that, though he himself was facing
Woody's back. the mirror negatived
this advantage. le saw that right
hand hitnging idly down. Woody dd
not move a muscle. The man's jaw
dropped. le remained quiescent for
at few seconds, then back out through
the doorway, and on his own initiative
rode out of the state.
These preannounced attemlpts on
human life were far less bloody than
were the onslaughts by the real "kill
ers," tihe actual "bad men." These
latter nien did not announuce. Th'iey

ty-three years of age, had committed
23 murders, and had made the iues

In the '80's sone "rustlers" "holed

"rustlers," a wondrously accurate
shooter, seeking to escape, rushed
fron the cabin's door, and, without
warning, began to fire. At each shot
le "crossed" lils rifle-that is, lie tired
alternately from lils right and left
shoulder, thus increasing the width of
his zone of fire without making him
rotate his body, and thereby unduly
affect his running. He lilt five men

An Early Helicopter.
While inventors in Washington, Chi
cago and Dayton are working in se
crecy to construct a practical helicop
ter, D. E. Garber, airplane expert of
the division of mechanical technology
of the Smithsonian institution, Is mak
ing a model of the first promising de
sign of this type of vertically rising
This model, soon to be added to the
National museum, is being built after
the design of Sir John Cayley, the
Englishman who is regarded as the
father of modern aeronautlal science.
Mr. Garber says that this design, made
in 1843, was astonishingly sound in
,principle, although the body of the
Cayley machine was fancifully fash
ioned after that of a bird with a bird
head carved on the prow. Vertical
lift was to be obtained by two wind
mill-like propellers which were to act
as a sustaining plane when the ma
chine wns driven horizontally by an
other propeller situated at the rear,
Equilibrium was obtained in much the
same way as the most successful of
the recent European heelicopters.
Sir John Cayley sh~owved ini his writ
ings, however, that lie realizedl that
aerial navigation depended upon new
material and power such as hans been
found in alutminumi and gasoline.
Thumb Made Him Wealthy.
Not long aigo a famous physician
in Saxoniy, D~octor Metzger, celebrated
his siEventy-fifth birthmday. lIe had re

years, having become immensely

greatest suargeons of Euarope, bringing

The queen of Rumania sent for
this (doctor wvith the curious thumb
when she suffered from facial nou

drove a beautiful span of horses over
the border of his kingdoma to consult
the doctor, and, on returning, left the
horses as a token of gratituade to his

Nothing for Nothing.
It was said by all the neighbors of

known to give away anything in his
life. He either sold It or demanded
something In exchange.
On one occasion lie was making a
long railway journey. The seat direct

sneezing at freque~nt intervals for
more than an hour. At last Mr. Tight
