DEATH ON LIGHTNING'S WING Atory of a Treble Iarldent of Thaa dor Storm that Was Never Forsrottea. George D. Prentice, the famous Kentucky editor of ante-bellum times, drew this .thrilling pen picture of an August thunder storm: "I never wss a man of feeble courage. There are few scenes of either human or elemental strife upon which I have not looked with a brow Of daring. I hsve stood In the front of the battle when the swords were gleaming and circling around me like fiery serpents in the air. I have seen these things with a swelling soul, that knew not, that recked out danger. "But there Is something In the thunder's voice that makes me tremble like a child. I have tried to overcome this unmanly weakness. I have called pride to my eld; I have sought for moral courage tn the les sons of philosophy, but It avails me noth ing. At the first low Moaning of the dis tant cloud my heart ahrlnks and dies wiihin me. "My Involuntary dread of thunder had Its origin In an Incident that occurred when I was a boy of 10 .years. I had a little cousin, a girl of tbe ssme age with myself, who had been the constant companion of my youth. Strsnge that, after a lapse of many years, that occurrence should be ' so familiar to me! I can see the bright young creature, her eyes flashing like a beautiful gemi her free locks streaming as In Joy upon the rising gale and her cheeks glow ing like a ruby through a wreath of trans parent snow. "Her voice had the melody and Joyouaness of a bird's, and when she bounded over the wooded hill or fresh green valley, shouting a glad answer to every voice of nature and clasping her little hands in the ecstasy of young existence-, she looked ss If breaking away, like a free nightingale, from the earth and going oft where all things are beautiful, like her. It was a morning tn the middle of Au gust. The little girl had been passing some days at my father's house, and she was now to return home. Her "path lay across the .fields and gladly I became the com panion of her walk. I never knew a sum mer morning more beautiful and still. Only one little cloud was visible, and that seemed a pure and white and peaceful as If It had been the Incense smoke of some burning censor of the skiea. "The leaves hung silent in the woods, the waters In the bay had forgotten their un dulations, the flowers were bending their heads, as If dreaming of the rainbow and dew, and the whole atmosphere waa of such a soft and luxurious sweetness that It seemed a cloud of roses scattered down by the hands of Perlra from the afnr-off gar den of Paradise. .The green earth and the blue sea lay around. In their boundlessness, and the peaceful sky bent over and blessed them. "The little creature at my side waa In de lirium of happiness, and her clear, sweet voice came ringing upon the air as often as she heard the tones of a favorite bird. or found some strange lovely flower In her frolic wanderings. The unbroken and al most supernatural stillness of the day con tinued until noon. Then, for the first time, the indications of, an approaching tempest became manifest. , . "On the summit of a mountain, at the dis tance of about a mile, the folds of a dark cloud beoune suddenly visible, and, the same Instant, a hollow roar came down upon the winds, as If It had been the sound of waves In a rock cavern. The cloud rolled out like a banner unfolded upon the air, but still, the atmosphere was as calm and thei leaves as motionless as before-; and there" vviis not even a quiver among the.. sleeping waters to tell of the coming hurricane. - "To cecape the tempest was Impossible. As the only resort, , we , fled to ,an' oak that stood at the foot of a tall and ragged precipice. Here, we stood, and gazed al most breathlessly upon the clouds, mar shaling themselves like bloody giants in the sky. The thunder was not frequent, but every burst was so fearful that the young creature who stood by me shut her eyes convulsively and clung with desperate strength to my arm, and shrieked as if her heart, would break. . "A few minutes and the storm was upon us. During the height of Its fury, the lit tle girl lifted her finger toward the preci pice that towered over us. I looked, and saw there a purple light. And the next moment the clouds opened, the rocks tot tered to their foundations, a, roar like the groan of the universe filled the air, and I felt myself blinded, and thrown, I know not whither. How . long I remained In (83 ' f ' 'J s l - ' . t f : . lk I . V' i sensible I cannot tell; but wTen conscious ness returned, the violence ,ot the tern pest wss abating, the roar of the wind was dying In the tree tops, and the dee) tones of thunder clouds came In falntei murmurs from the eastern hills. "I arose and looked tremblingly and al most deliriously around. She was there, the dear Idol of my Irffant love, stretched out upon the green enrth. After a mo ment of Irresolution I went up and looked upon her. Tbe handkerchief upon her neck was slightly rent, and a single dark spot upon her bosom told where the pathway of death had been. At first I rlaapedJ her to my breast with a cry of agony, and then laid her down, and gazed upon her face almost with feelings of calmness. "Her bright, disheveled hair clustered sweetly around her brow; the look of terror had faded from her Hps, and Infant smiles were pictured there; the rose tinge upon her cheeks was lovely as In life; and, as I pressed them to my own, the foun tains of tears were opened, and I wept as If my heart were waters. I have but a dim recollection of what followed. I only know that I remained weeping and motionless till the coming twilight, and I was taken tenderly by the hand and led away where t saw the countenance of par ents and sister. "Many years have gone by en the wings Of light and shadow, but the scenes I have portrayed still come over me at times with terrible, distinctness. The oak yet stands at the base of the precipice, but Its limbs are black and dead, and the hol low trunk looking upward to the sky, a if 'calling to the clouds for drink,' Is an emblem of rapid and noiseless decay. "A year ago I visited the spot, and the thought of bygone years came mourn fully back to me. I thought of the little Innocent being who fell by my side, like some beautiful tree of spring, rent up by the whirlwind tn the midst of blossoming. But I remembered, and oh, there was Joy In the memory, that she had gone where no lightnings slumber In the folds of the rainbow cloud, and where the sunlit waters are broken only by storm breath of Om nipotence." SMALLEST TRUST OF ALL Large Watch Signs Ised by Jewelers tbe Country Over Made by v Oae Man. . Springfield, -O., is the home of the small eat trust. It' Is largely a one-man affair and the employes number three, yet this octopus supplies the world with the single product of Its shop. Every big watch sign that swings above the shops of watchmakers snd Jewelers the country over is made in Springfield, unlens it was manufactured back In the days be fore Lon Barnhart ran all his competitors out of business. , Barnhart. a sign painter by trade, with a little shop high up In a Springfield bulld Cream ripened in open pans, exposed to odors and dust, butter worked by hand and washed in impure water there is no certainty about such a product, And a deal of guesswork. - . - ...

BEATRICE CREAMERY COMPANY. 10th and Howard Sts. - r:..r.:: mm og, turns out all the signs that are used n America ell thst are more than four feet In height. There may be Jewelers who have commissioned mechanics to make In dividual signs for them, but Barnhart has not a competitor In the United States, Canada or Mexico. There le not a week that he doee not re ceive Inquiries from foreign countries, but all foreign orders he declines, the duty and cost of transportation of the bulky tlgns making It unprofitable to send them so far. His stsple style Is a watch six feet and a half from base to top of tha ring. It la made of sheet sine and weighs seventy-five pounds. There is one larger slse, eight feet high. These monster watches he keeps In stock, though the calls for them are few. Mr. Barnhart has been m the business eighteen years. Eight years he spent In Chicago, the remainder of the time In Springfield. With two exception every sign In Springfield hss been made by him, and those two are small ones, made of Iron. Eighty per cent of his- product are Illumi nated signs. A few observant people have found it out for themselves and others have had their attention called to the fact that nearly every watch sign In the country has Its hands painted to Indicate 8:18 o'clock. One of the most common explanations Is that a maker of signs who was painting a dial when Abraham Lincoln was shot marked the hour with his brush and ever since that time makers of signs have fol lowed the precedent. "I have heard the story," said Mr. Barn hart, "but there is nothing to It. A good many signs were painted with the handa In that polstlon before Lincoln ever became president." The fact of the matter Is that thla posi tion is the only one in which the hands balance properly and at the same time give an arrangement on the dial to allow the proper display of the watchmaker's name. It would not look just light to have the hands point straight away from each other, as they would at seventeen minutes after nine, and no other arrangement gives room for the lettering.

The device la a form of phonograph, and In certain re spects Is materially different from the Ed ison Instrument There seems to be ao doubt aa t the rffldeney of the mechanism, but as yet It has not been Introduced Into service. Perhspe It never will be. The managers of telephone exchanges In Eu rope and America, do not aeem to have discovered an overpowering oad of It A second reason exists for treating tho latest announcement about Paulsen with respect. Other men have jjone something? of the same kind with Herts waves. Sev eral Inventors have shown how to control the steering appsratus of a- submarine torpedo, from lend or a ship without a wire. ' The system has not yet been adopted by any navy tn the world. The demonstrations thus far given hsve been, made with models, snd for exhibition pur poses only. From these it seems probable that certain simple mechanical operations, like the moving of tiny rodder, can be .directed from a distance. T manipulate thirty er forty keys, either upon a type writer or a Linotype mschlne, would be a much more difficult task, because K In volves greater mechanical . and etedtrlcal complications. Nevertheless It Is appar ently not. Impossible. A r writer about "Curious Inventions" In Caasler'a Magasln for August briefly describes a wireless electric typewriter. The Inventor of It ta not named, but tha apparatus Is men tioned Immediately after', the "telegra phone" of Paulsen, and tt I said to bo "stilt In the experimental stage." 1 Were It thoroughly practicable to control a typewriter by such method, the device could not come Into general use unless It were cheaper and more simple than thoee printing telegraphs which use ordinary electricity and a wire a possibility which Is extremely remote. Again, It is unlikely that In any well regulated newspaper offloe It will ever be deemed expedient to put new dispatches Into type without th Interposition of a "copy" editor. Talk about controlling Linotypes directly from a distance, therefore, is a trifle absurd. New Tork Tribune. Disarmed1. By this time the controversy bad reached the stage of personalities. "I don't wonder the baby Is fretful and Irritable sometimes," exclaimed Mr. Fer guson, shrilly. "She Inherits your disposi tion!" . . . "Perhaps she does, madam," recklessly retorted Mr. Ferguson. "Perhaps she does. But she Inherit your look." "Bless her heart so she does I" said his wife, catching the baby up In her arms and crooning over the cherub, "George, dear, I take it all back!" N Then, manlike, he went out and gloated over this, as if he had won a victory by superior shrewdness Chicago Tribune. Bee Want Ads for reaulua 'KSfiw 1 99 2 y g B
