One erening in February three gentlemen were rowing in a small skill ou the
bay In front of St. AunuaUne, Florida,
iu the Southern States.
After they hod beeu rowlog for a
time, one ol the three, who sat In the
stern of the boat, arose, and,.fsir aonssi
reason, attetu|-tcd to pass the one wsso
sat on the centre seat. This caused the
host to give a stssldcn lurch to the s-lde,
tu sympathy ol tlte extra weight, mil
the next instatit ths* boat eaisslaed.
Aa the suen strimirliHl in the.water It
was evident thnt two ol them could

M'ciiicsl to la- pushing the bswst away

he sank beneath the s.irfas*e oMlic
water. Then the otlier two oi'isenrril
to make an otten.pt to right this cap*h.*4
boot,, but It tilled with water and ssank.
As tbe boat sauk the two called loudly
for help, to a passing steamer, an I
struck out towards If. Those on the

'witnessed the .."accident" to the men,

of Mr. Claymore nt the aisle ot the boo .
roused the boat to go over. The Occident wns witnessed from the deck of tho
Pleasure steamer "Cordelia,*' the oaptain

"1 rsw an article in one ot the technical journals recently." snid a New Or
Jenns engineer, "doneribhiK a so called
'centrifugal cannou' whleh some genius
tn  Manchester,  England, was supposed
10 hare Invented. The mechanism was
said to consist of a big wheel, wbicb was
revolved at a tremendous rate of speed,
while projectiles, fetl into grooves on its
wurrace, were biirletl through a barrel on
the same principle tbnt a boy throws a
stone from a sling. I could take a piece
of [uiper and convince you in two minutes tbnt the thing Is a mechanical bu*

because it rccn-Mt-.il a very similar device
wbich I snw years uj*o at Louisville.

Ills 'gnu* was set up In the engine room
of the place, and I couldn't help smiling
when I snw It. It consisted of a fly*
wheel abont tive feet In diameter, with
au attachment for holding half a doicn
���mmII cannon halls against the rim and
releasing them at fixed intervals. The
Idea was to connect the wheel with a
steam engine and when It attained a certain velocity to let loose the balls just
as they passed a given point In the revolution, (leisemann bad figured tbat they
would fly off at a right angle and bit a
target at tbe other end of the shed, and
he Invited me tu be present nt the test
he was going to give tbe following week.
"To please my friend I went around,
and I shall never forget the ludicrous
contretemps that wound up tbe experiment. About 20 ot us were grouped near
tbe wheel wheu the Inventor slipped on
the engine belt and began to speed it up.
I suppose It was making a couple of
hundred revolutions n minute wben be
touched tbe spring connected with tbe release nu'cbniii*m, nud a big, black can-
nou ball instantly soared off nt a tangent
and went crashing through the skylight
The next missile struck a huge pile of

others landed I can't sny, for by tbnt

Among the best kuown and most
respected residents of 'tlie township
of Gainsboro, Lincoln county, Out.,
are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Boumer. For
a long tiino Mrs. Beamcr was the victim of a complication of diseases,
which made her lifo .one of almost
constant misery, and from which she
nearly despaired of obtaining relief.
To a reporter who recently interviewed her, Mrs. Beamer gave the following particulars of her illness, and ultimate cure:���"For some nine yours
I' was troubled -with a pain in the
back, and neuralgia, which caused me
unspeakable misery. ( The pain in
my back was so bad that whether
sitting or lying down, 1 suffered more
or loss torture. My appetite left me,
and I suffered from headaches accompanied by attacks of dizziness that
left me at times too weak to walk.
My nervous .system was badly shattered, so tliat the slightest noise
would .startle me, and my sleep at
night was broken by sheer exhaustion. I wus under tbo care of three
different doctors at . various times,
but did not succeed in getting more
than the merest tenijiorary relief. 1
1 was finally urged to try l��r. Williams' Pink Pills, and got half a
dozen boxes. In the course of a fow
weeks I noted considerable improvement, and as a consequence, 1 gladly continued the use of tlie pills for
pevorai months, with the result that
every symptom of the malady left
me, and I waa able to do my housework without the least trouble. As
several years have passed since 1
have used the pills, 1 feel safe in saying that the cure is permanent, and
the result also verifies tlie claim thut
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure when
other medicines fail." The reporter
can only add. that Mrs. Boomer's
present condition indicates a state of
perfect health, and speaks louder
thnn mere words* can do, the benefit
these pills have been to her.    ,
Dr. Williams' Pink Pilis have restored more weak and ailing women
and girls to robust health tliuii nny
other medicine ever discovered, which
in part accounts for their popularity
throughout the world. These pills
are sold by all dealers or may bo hud
by mail at 50 cents a box, or six
boxes for S2.50, by addressing the
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
The Dream of the Ker.
Somo small article Imd beeu lost��� 1
fdl'gel now whnt. let us sny a key���belonging to oue or two sisters who were
trtiveliug together. It could nowhere
be found. But one night one of tbe sisters dremncil tlmt she snw (lie key in
the pocket of her traveling hag. She
told tills drenin otl waking to the other.
"Aud havo you looked In the pocket?*'
tiie slater nsked. "No. 1 have uot."
snld she, "for the very good reason lhat
thore Is no pocket lu my traveling

look tbere on the clinncc." And there
the key wns found.
The Inference Is Hint the dreamer
hnd seeu with the eye of sense, though
not with the eye of observation, the
key put into the pocket. Even when the
key wns so fouud she hud no recollection of seeing It placed there, but the
brain liad unconsciously recorded Ihe
sensation. In course of steep It had
stumbled on tbat record, nnd by good
luck tiie sleeper on awaking chanced
to remember tbe mental operation thnt
tint) taken place during sleep. It is a
singular aud almost nlnttning reflection
thnt our bruins nre stored with countless such records of which we know
nolhiug, nor ever shall know unless (hr
association of Ideas or somo peculiar
mental stale brings them to our notice.

Progress of Copper.
Thi. country could not show an
annual output ol copper amounting to
1.000,000 |sounds until after tbe middle
of lha nineteenth century, note* the
Western Mining World. The fir.t ��hip-
���ncnt of copptr fro.n Lak- Superior
was mad* in 184:1. and at.sountesl to
12 ton*. Early In i tb* century just
cloMd tbe production of oopper in the
entire world wa* only about 8,000 tone,
ansl in th* middle of the century li
had increased to about 20,COO tens
The world's production of copper during
the past century is estimated at bet wees,
8.000,000 aud 9.000,000 tons. At the
preseut rat* of proslssction. ths copper
output for tb* world In th* twentieth
will agungat* more than 40.000.00..
tons. The pro-lssctlon of copj*er in th.t

At she time of leaving Paardekop I
wa. on n hill whioh co.nsna���-ls*d a view
ot the whrle column ���a graixl sight--
with the Advance guard,-with frontage
of aboiit two milea, with supports-
artillery, iiifau'rv and the cosivov,
each wagon drawn by 18 oxen traveling six abreast^ or even more aa th*
grooud would require, end the rear
guard protecting our convoy. The
first place we took was Amespoort,
Stra*hernias entering first; the next
Ermeto, whioh was also entered by
Ssratbeona fn the lead .midst a dust
storm-in tact, we raced to see who
would snter first nnd I waa ot the first
six to resell town, and I ala hnd the
honor of beiug tho first to alignt. We
took several -prisoners here and we
were treated well by the people, somo
ol whom wes*English, remarking that
they were pleased to see us, but that
Oh, toy! you are dirty"; and no
wonder, when a man travel* through
a blinsliug duststorm for four mile*.
Advancing further, C Squadron ef

Carolina and then pushed on toward*
Mar.haslodorp, bnt b-fore getting there
we found the Boor* in fore* and
strongly entrenched nesr Dalinanu ha
who opposed us as well as they could,
but we proved to be too strong, while
our T.iinuiies had the satisfaction of
tickling some with the bayonet, an
experience which wae well earned after
advancing for 2,000 yards, Tha
shell fire v.-as terrific, the air being
literally .potted with bursting shell-,.
Tb. enemy lost to our know led-:* o> cr

ed to Macltadoslorp, ossr next point
on the way. Here we were opposed a
little, but thoy had to succumb to our
del.-mimed advance,
Lvdenburg was onr next goal, bnt
at Crocotfilo Valley the Bss-r* held a
fee simile of Laings's Nek. wbieh O-n.
Buller said hc could take wilh the loss
of about 1,000 men, so l.e determined
to wait while another colmun made a
Sank attack, whioh is alwavs dreaded
by tbe ensinv. Wa made a feint attack
and then remained still all day under
terrible shell fire-some say th*
���everest fir* of tb* campaign. W*
only lost on* artilleryman und eight

We arrived at Lydenhurg. Leaving

capture! 300 ton.: ot provisions and
