If Moua KlTemll Khoitrl la right,
the value of silkworm will soon be very

an application for a patent.
Aftr studying for a long time the
manner lu which silkworm do their
work Momma Kffemli Khourl cam to
the eoticluiilnu that quite a tine a silk
could bo made out of tho twig and
bark of the mulberry tree a 1 made
at present from the leajrea. He there
fore experimented with the bark and
twig, discarding the ervlco of tho
worms altogether, and after years of
labor he succeeded In producing a
silk which ha been pronounced by
Kuropeitn expert to be no whit Infer
ior to tho article manufactured by ailk
worm. In appreciation of Mnussa Kffendl
Khouri devotion to science the Turk
ish government ha granted hint cer

Tale of a War Horse.
An olllecr of experience, writing on
the behavior of horse in battle, says:
When it come to battle a horse icems
to know everything that 1 going on;
but lie does hi duty nobly, nnd seams
to be in hi element. He enters into
tho spirit of the battle liko a human
being. He shows no fear of death, and
it Is singular Hint if hi mate : is shot
down ho will turn to look at blm aud
seem pleased. A horse lit my battery
wa once struck by a piece ot shell,
which split his skull, so tlmt ono side
was loose, The driver turned him
loose, but he-walked up by the side of
the gun nnd watched the firing, and
when a shot waa fired would look away
In the direction of the enemy, as if to
see the effect of tho shot. When ashell
would burst near by he would oalmly
turn and look at It. When he saw his
own team going back for ammunition
ho run buck to Til own place and gal
loped back to the caisson with the
rest. When the Lieutenant pushed
him aside to put in another horse, he
looketl at the other ono sorrowfully
while hit was being harnessed up, and
whim hu scorned to realize that there
was no further use for him he lay
down and died. TheLloutcnantstrong.
