Being extremely sensitive, anyway, the thought of the terrible injury I had inflicted 'jpon thic- jnsro s" wrought upon my fee!ings t.hii.t T could pot st.iy in one place, and I wandered about Mexico for three months. At the same time 1 was afraid that] might be identified by some person and U:. n.r- rei.lorl and carried back for the punishment I so richly deserved. After four months 1 came over to Texas, and, in •i n-niote town. I opened run office ngum and changed my iio-mc. I managed to make a living, awl stayed there for five years, worrying so over the mam that I had niiide blind, and perha.ps had left to die that I became gray ami wrinkled. "I presume I would have died Ubere, but one day I happened into/San Antonio, and wet a man I had known in the Arkansas town. At first I thought of trying to get away, but I concluded: that tho time bad come for me to take mv punishment, for T couldn't stand >t nny longer, and. I went up to him and asked him if he didn't come from Blajik- ville, and did ho know Mr. X and ttoft doctor who hod got out of town so disgracefully. I was relieved to find that he didn't know me at all. and he at once proceeded to tell me that the disappearance of the doctor was still an unsettled mystery, and. that Mr. X was m good health. I told him I hud heard that the doctor had taken out the wrong eye and that the old man had become stone blind in consequence. He assured me that the old man had not suffered any inconvenience at. all, because he was blind, anyway, in both eyes, and had been for years, and another physician had 'fintsh.ed.-the job .quite satisfactorily, and the patient's & eDerttl health bod greatly improved. "You have no idea," concluded the pcivt.leman from Texas, "how this news relieved me, and in my enthusiasm _1 gave up the practice of medicine forever, and put my money into a manufacturing establishment that has almost made me rich in the post 20 years. I never went back to the remote Texas town again, neither did I ever go to tho Arkansas town, nor tell my informant who I was. As it happened, I was all ri»ht but the Buffering I had endured was enough to cause me to put that part of my post clear behind me and keep it there." • Loyal to Thrtr Country.

Flylnc Attachment Enables Wheelmen to Moimt lo-tho Air. If the wheel isn't fast enough for you, why. fly. It seems as though the old fairy legend of the seven league boots would come true before this century ends. The bicycle has multi-plied many fold the speed possible in. personal locomotion. Distance has been divided by 100. But that isn't enough. No week passes but there appears s-ome new device, intended to lighten the labor and accel- irato the speed of the wheel. The latest of these is a bicycle flying machine. Experiment has just been mode with this wonderful machine, find the- results, the inventor says, make ordinary cycling seem as ancient and clumsy as' a jolting journey in the wagons of our grandfathers. The man who has devised this wonderful machine, says the New York Journal, is Charles Sigors, a young machinist. There is no joke about it. He considers the bicycle flying machine an altogether practical proposition and has filed application for patents to protect it. The flying- machine attachment is to be fnstsncd to the handle bar of the bicycle. The wings will be of canvas, fjwcllloH for Army C*n In Kuropu nnd Hi.

Army oflicers are greatly interested in u new utilisation ol' the shelter ttut, which is carried by the soldier in the field. At present this shelter tent is made of very unsatisfactory material uud is by no means water-proof. It is of no other use than us a shelter tent, and beyond that is un ineumbrance to the soldier, adding- to his burdenson the inarch by about three pounds. Capl. Edmund Kice, of the Fifth infantry, stationed at Fort McPlicrson, Georgia, has made a suggestion which, according to the New York Times, meets with considerable approval among military experts. He propose* to OKI l;e of the shelter tent a cape which may be worn by the soldier in inclement weather. This use of the present tent may be readily acquired by simple straps which will fasten the cape about 'the neck and waist, The double use of the shelter tent will be appreciated by the trooper and is in the line of modern military equipment, the idea beiiiff now to economize in'the number as In the weight of a rticles carried by the soldier, and to make each article do as much service as possible. In some oC the services the ration can, for instance, when separated, furnishes the cooking utensils of the soldier. The meat ration can of the foreign army, when taken apart, supplies a frying pan and plate. One of the most interesting of foreign military novelties lately received at the military information division is a device in the same line as that of Capt. Rice's cape-shelter tent. It is a shelter-coat tent used in the Austrian army. Two of these coats can be fastened together, and.with the bayonet of rifle as a center pole, furnish a water-proof shelter for two men. The separate coats are of finely woven waterproof material, and in that respect are much better than the so-called shelter-tent material of the United States army. These Austrian coats weigh two and a half pounds, or six ounces more than our shelter tent. The coats are fitted with THE WHEEL WITH WINQS. stretched over aluminium frames. They will be eight feet long and about four feet in width. They will be rectangular in shape and one will be fastened on either side of the air cylinder, -which. will be in the center. In the cylinder lies the secret of the success of the device. It will be four feet in length, with a diameter of 15 inches. It will be constructed of alum- inium and some alloy of sufficient, resistance to allow 100 pounds pressure of compressed stir to the square inch. Before the wheelman starts out the nir will be pumped in, and the inventor declares that when the cylinder is filled the buoyancy will counteract the weig-at of the apparatus, and render the propulsion of the wheel perfectly easy, A CUT of Potato Kallis, 1'omernnia, la in the center of i great potato-raising: country. In the fall the entire population of the' city, between 3,000 and 4,000, shut up their houses and leave their keys with the mayor and scatter out to help with the' potato harvest. Travelers who have risited the place in the fall declare that they found th'e town without a slnglo; Inhabitant, except the mayor and tha; bell-rlntrer. . . SHELTER TENT USED AS CAPE, sleeves and are equipped with drawstrings, at neck and belt. They are serviceable garments when worn as n rubber coat, giving protection from the •rain and allowing the soldier free use of his arms in handling his weapon. This Austrian idea is favored by the war department officials, and it may be that this combination article, or something- akin to it, will be adopted for our service. It seems to be even better than the idea of Capt, Rice, although that officer's suggestion is more economical, in that it contemplates no change in the present shape or style of our shelter tents. The matter of military equipment in the last year has engaged thfc attention of the oflicers of the war department, especially those interested in the furnishing of supplies to the armed forces. Our military attaches abroad have been vel-y industrious in observing the novelties of the European services and have been prompt to send to the military information division in the war department samples of the new devices in use abroad. Many of these have been practically tested in our service Among other devices has been an aluminum horseshoe. This, of course. is much lighter than the iron horseshoe in use and is found-to be quite as serviceable. A cavalry officer stationed at San' Cnrlos, Ariz., kept an aluminum shoe on bis horse for 45 days Shoes of this material are, of course, expensive, and the present cost is beyond the means of the department for their adoption for the service, but it is recommended that on aluminum horse shoe be furnished the cavalryman as the extra shoe which he carries in his saddlebag. At present this aluminum horseshoe costB about 50 cents. The officers have been interested also In a new German 'canteen of aluminum of a flatter shape than our canteen which allows it to rest the better at the side. It bos been found that water wil keep for six months ir. these ahiminum canteens, while the ordinary tin ones are quickly rusted. The meat-ration con referred to already as a combicet cooking utensil and plate, weighs les than half the tinned-iron con atpresen in use. Another article in use abroad is a very light weight nosebag for horses. Still another is an asbesto shield to fix in the hole in the. tenl&a a protection against fire . from eontac with the stove pipe. !
