MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1898. r WARHORSES. their Great Intelligence Hiul Martial Spirit When the Battle la On. "It is remarkable how quickly horses adapt themselves to the mili- lary service," said an old soldier. "Every artilleryman knows that they learn the bugle calls and the evolutions quicker than tho men, as n rule. They OOH acquire a uniform gait, which is about the same as what we call the route step 01 the usual marching step. If the horses did not acquire the saiuo gait as the infantry, there would he varying distances between the different arms of the service--that is, between tho infantry ami the cavalry, artillery and the commanders and theii escorts. In tlio drills iu the artillery service the horses will preserve theii alignment as well as the infantry rank. "I shall always remember one illustration of this trait which I notec at 11 very exciting and critical moment of 'a battlo during our civi! .·wnr. In order to save- some of 0111 infantry from being surrounded anc" captured the commander of 0110 oi our batteries quickly mounted the cannoneers on the guns and put tho whole battery at a dead galloj: across a stretch of meadow about half a mile wide. I was quito accustomed to such sights, but when that dashing company was half w across the field I noticed tlio inspiring array and for a moment was lost in rapt admiration of tho magnificent picture. "Every driver was plying whip and spur, the great guns were rocking and thundering over the ground, and'every horse, recking with foam and full of animation and excitement, was straining" every muscle as he galloped forward,yet a straig line diawn along in trout would have touched the uo?.'g of t h o load horses iu i'routot thetix yui.fc. That was an artillery charge, one of the moFt thrilling sights in the evolutions of war. "It is surprising bow quickly horses learn the bugle call. Let tbo first note of tlio feed or water call be sounded, and instantly there will be n stamping, kicking and neighing among the horses. Once, during a terrible night" storm in camp, our · horses were seized with snch terror that those of nearly every battery broke loose and scattered about. The next morning there was a wild rush among the artillerymen to cap, ture horses for use. All was excitement, and the horses refused to be caught. An officer ordered the bugler to give the feed call. Horses from every direction came dashing in to that battery, and tho rush was eo great that it was with difficulty the men could get out of the way of the eager horses. "When it comes to a battle, a horse seems to know everything that is going on and the reason for it all and does his duty nobly. Ho enters into the spirit of a battle like n human being. ' He shows no fear of death, no sign of being overcome by" panic in all the wild tumult of the battle's roar."--New York Sun. LIFE I N CANTON. FRENCH HUMOR. M. Francisqne Sarcey and Big Grotesque Effigy In the Carnival. . It is often said tbat Frenchmen lack humor and dread ridicule, but M. Fraii- " cisque Sarcey has given an example of that humorous good sense which defies mockery. At carnival timo in Paris it is customary to exhibit on tho bonlo- ^ vards grotesque effigies of well known public men. A modest stranger called on M.-Sarcey to tell him tbat his imago was to figure in the procession. ' · "Verygood,"saidM. Sarcey. "What · can I do for you?" - "Well, if you would be so kind as to lend us some of your veritable garments, they would make the likeness all the , stronger." "No doubt," responded tho critic blandly. "In that cupboard you will 'find several hats." "Oh, tho veritable hat will not do! You sec, your head--I mean tho head of the effigy--is enormous.'' ·"Tresbien. Take a coat, then." Dressed in tho veritable coat, tho Sarcey dummy was an immense) success. It eccmecl so strange to literary Paris, however, for a man. to aid and abet tho caricature of himself that M. Sarcey has volunteered an explanation, which 1 is a delicious bit of humor. "Lamnr- "-tine," he remarks, "would not have consented to lend his coat for such 'a purpose. Ho was a poet with a sensitive eouL So was Victor Hugo. But what ·would you? Wo cannot all be Laniai- tines and Hugos. Why should we poor journalists, who have no feelings to epeak of, deuy ourselves to tho popnlaco when we can contribute to thcir hauu- less amusement? Besides, they may not always think it worth thoir whilo to ndtice 'die · '/"An agreeable trifler came to mo tho other ;dayand asked my permission for the use of my name in a burlesque. I gave it cheerfully. 'This may be tho last time,' said he. 'What do you mean?' I asked. 'Well, you aro goiug . out of date, and next year you may not be worth a laugh 1' "--Exchange. Lying as a Dbeaw. "The liar is a much abused person, " , . said a well known loaal physician to a reporter last week. ' 'The liar is not al- 1 , ways to blame, and if · you have any friends who are addicted to false repre- '. eentation of things advise them to coii- eult their doctors.' There is hopo for at least one class of liars. Medicine and medical methods aro applicable to those who suddenly develop au abhorrence for the truth and lio on all occasions, even though the truth might better suit their purpose. This has come to be thought of only as a species of dementia that' is oft times successfully treated. "Tho malicious liar is a difficult problem, for ho knows that ho is telling a lie and . there is 110 hope for him. But there are lots of people who just lio naturally, without knowing what they are saying or why they say it. The in. dividual often has nothing whatever to accomplish by lying, but does so just as some people stutter. But, as I said before, he should not be blamed and frowned upon. His mind is unhealthy and his nervous system is out of order. Rest, tonic and good nursing often restore these people to their normal self, and then the love of rectitude returns, and ! they are effectually cored of a very cm- i "-- WasJtimrton Post. | Iho People ami tlio Customs of a Fame Chinubu City. There are Europeans .it Canton, but they livo iu. a settlement outside the uativo city. Their influence, like their of abode, is merely upon .lio out ermost edge of the community. ' Our ideals of civilization have not touchet the people. They are today as thej have btou for centuries past. The; sneer at our institutions and consider themselves in every way superior to thi white " barbarian." Casual visitors to the crowded city visit the various points of interest by means of sedan chairs. They are accompanied by a uativ guide, -\vho conscientiously goes through a long catalogue of things, woiidorfu or horrible, iu English, which is fluent ly spoken but imperfectly understood by those to whom it is addressed. The guide is very attentive to those in his care, very polite in his manners, ant ol'teu possessed of a fair amount of hu mor. The streets of the city are of a pattern of immemorial antiquity. None is more tliau ton feet wide. The houses lean in from the base and almost meet overhead, shutting out all but the liar rawest strip of daylight Signboards ;:re hung perpendicularly outside ever; house. They are elaborately carved ark gayly decorated with abundance of golc leaf and scarlet or black lacquer. The mystic looking symbols inform the cm! ous that one particular shop is "Prosper cd by Heaven," another has "Never Ending Good Luck," while yet another is "The Market of Golden Profits"--the said profits, be it known, going into th pocket of the dealer. Among the most interesting sights o: this unchangeable city are the pawn shops. They are often great, square solid granite structures, which lool more like old border keeps than thi residences of accommodating "uncles ' Tlio pawnshop fulfills a double pur pose. It advances money at an interes varying from 20 to 8G per cent, and i stores in safety within its massive walls those articles of finery and adommen which are only required at special time; and seasons. On the flat roofs of these citadels are piles of stones 'and jars ol vitriol, ready to repel any attack tha may bo made by thieves, .whoso methods of plunder are less refined than those o: the pawnbrokers. In the jade stone market we nice with tho Chinese parallel to the western diamond. Tho best stones are very valuable and are brought from Turkestan, the ouly place in the world where mines of this stone are worked. Every well to do Chinaman wears a ring, brooch or bracelet of jade, 'and the poor, who aro unable to purchase the real article, wear ornaments of glass, which aro colored ill imitation of tho more expensive jade. Shaggy dogs with coal black tongues aro disposed of in another market. Fried rat and boiled frog, not to mention fricasseed puppy, tempt the hungry into tho native restaurant. The local "medicine man," adhering to tho prescriptions ol his ancestors, makes pills and potions, of which tlio chief ingredients are was, dccrs' horns, petrified bones, petrified crabs, snakes, scales of the armadillo, tigers' bones aud lime. When the medicines do not euro, they kill, and whether tho patient lives or dies he does 60 knowing that at any rate no hated foreigner has had anything to do with the strength or quality of his ruedical diet --European Magazine, London. SHEATHING A SHIP. Composition Metal Now Largely Deed. V.'"ork Quickly and Handsomely Done Yachts built of wood are sheathed with copper, and so aro many tugboats. Merchant ships ore sometimes sheathed with copper, but nowadays the material most commonly used, is a composition metal which in appearance resembles brass. It does not wear so long as copper, but it costs less. The composition metal comes in sheets about 3 feet by 1 foot 4 inches. They are fastened, on tho ship with nails of the same material Sometimes tho sheathing is nailed directly on to tho hull of tho ship. Sometimes it is nailed over another sheathing of felt, which helps to preserve tb.9 calking in the seams. "When tho ship has been placed ia a drydock or raised- out of water on a floating doclt, the old metal is stripped oil', aud if she is to have a felt sheathing tho bottom of tho ship is first painted with a coat of pitch, and the sheets of- felt are laid upon that, and then tho sheets of metal aro nailed on over them. Tho work is done very rapidly and at tho sanio time with great nicety. Every nail head is sunk so that it is flush with tho plate. If the hand were passed over tho sheathing anywhere, it would bo found smooth. If tho nail heads were permitted to project, they would of corn-so interfere with tho speed of the vessel. Soveuty-fivo men can sheathe an 1, SOO ton ship iu two days. The cost of sheathing such a ship with composition metal over felt, including material, dock charges, labor and everything, would be about §4,000, or a little less, and such a sheathing would last about two long voyages.--New York Sun. A bum Subsolllng. As subsoiliug ia simply loosening the lower soil under tha farrow it is dono by a plow of a special kind following directly after the ordinary plow.' The so called "boll tongue" plow is as good nn implement for the purpose as any other and costs only a trifle. Indeed, it may bo made by any blacksmith if it is not eubily procured at the implement dealer's. That any one may have one made Tho Country Gentleman, the source of these items on subsoiling, gives tho accompanying drawing. The plow is drawn by one horee following IV ® '-PLOW FOB SUBSOILTNO. in the furrow. It breaks the soil five or inches deep, which ia quite sufficient for the first plowing. This authority says it is to be especially noted as a caution that subsoiling is not tho turning of tho lower soil over on to tho surface. This would bo a disastrous operation. It is simply the breaking up of the undersoil beneath the old furrow bottom, BO as to expose it in tho action of tho air, and at times to assist in the drainage of the land of surplus water, at tbo Game time making it more retentive of actual moisture, by increasing its porosity and absorbing surfaces by breaking ifc into fragments. Her Face on the Plates. A new industry, first put forward under the patronage of Mrs. John Jacob Astor, has blossomed forth. This rich young woman, one of the most prominent and beautiful of Now York's fashionable matrons, has had her own face painted with most exquisite art on six very choice Sevres plates that aro only used for her smallest and most select luncheon parties. The plates show Mrs. Astor in evening dress, tailor dress, reception gown, skating lure, in a delicate summer muslin and in her bridal gown. CURE ALL YOUR PAINS WITH Pain-Killer.
