Cannons for uso In warfare appear to
hnvo been made of many substances
which would appear very unsuitable to
our modern Ideas. It must, however,
be remembered that In tho early days
of artillery powder was very coarse
and slow-burning, nnd the range was
very small. The wear and tear, there
fore, on the bore of the gun was as
nothing compared to what It Is now.
For lnstnnce, tho Swedes In the time of
Uustavus Adolphus used canuon of
leather, and lu KK10 similar wenpona
were made In Scotland under the direc
tion of Sir Alexander Hamilton, who
hai) seen service In Sweden. Cannon
imvii also been mndo of wood anil
ntnno. Rome times lined with a bore of
motal and sometimes not. Cannon mndo
of nlmost pure gold have been found
n iniiiii. It Is said that after Curten
left Mexico the Mexicans tried to Imi
tate his cannon In terra cotta. Krupp
has been credited with an experiment
in minor trims, that Is to say, Held
pieces of small caliber composed of a
motal coro surrounded by compressed
..nnnr null). Such cuns would, of
course, bo very much lighter, and
would bo much easier to carry auout

the most curious were those
used to flro salutes at a winter fete In

they lind an effectlvo range of sixty

Tho first Australian, newspaper, the

5, 1803, 15 years after tho rise of tho
colony. Tho delay wns caused through
there being no printers among the
convicts, who represented every pro
fession, including tho legal. The plant
was brought out in the first fleet, but
it could not be used until the anthori
tes caught a compositor.
To Do Avuy With Ear Trumpets.
A telephone has been invented for
deaf people which is intended to do
away with the necessity of carrying
large and clumsy ear trumpets which
are now in common uso. Tho new de
vice consists of a small transmittei
which is fastened to the coat, while
tho receiver can bo carried in the
pocket except when wanted. It is
then to be placed to tho car exactly as
is an ordinary telephone receiver. The
whole apparatus is worked by a small
electric battery, which also finds a
place in the pocket. Not only is the
new apparatus more convenient than
tho old-fashioned ear trumpet, but it i&
claimed by the inventor that it entire
ly does away with the necessity of talk
ing in a loud tone of voice. Chicago

Ono of these writers Is Lady Violet
Grevllle, and, according to her, tho
American women are responsible for
the extravagance of English women to
day. Ten or fifteen years ago, she says,
the American women, "fragile, beauti
ful creatures." appeared in England,
wearing Paris gowns aud beautifully
colffuredi nnd society succumbed to
them. That was tho end of dinner

frown and discontent, and debt on the
part of tho Englishman, but tho Eng

way Lady Violet puts it and was not
