PIONEERS HAVE DRY. TIME. Drought Affeeta Rivers of Lake I , Resloo Lens Before Wblte ' Settlera Come. ! ""It is well known, said William C, Thompson, relates the Indianapolis News, "that in its early settlement Indiana was- subjected to. extremes of heat and cold, though possibly not to the same extent aa now, and that droughts of considerable severity . sometimes occurred, though not with the frequency of recent years. There is .- an authentic reference to a drought of great severity which. af fected part of the region surround ing the great lakes and a part of the Ohio valley long before the ; advent of the white settler. It occurred in the summer and autumn of 1764, just after the close of the French and In dian war, and while the, war with the Indian tribes, Under the leader ship of Chief Pontiac, was in prog-" ress. The drought affected especial ly the Maumee and Sandusky rivers flowing into Lake Erie, and the head waters of -the Scioto, Great Miami and Wabash. ""Francis Parkman, the,, historian, relates that when a ' messenger was seat by the British commander at Detroit, then recently, wrested , from the French, ' to communicate -' with Pontiac, encamped on the Maumee a niort distance below where Fort Wayne Is now situated, the waters of Jthe Maumee river were - so low by reason of extreme drought . that "the T3irSssh messenger and his attendants -vere -compelled to drag .their canoes f.over Tocks and sandbars a good part -1 ol the distance from, the mouth of h .Maumee, near the present site of ' "Toledo, to the headwaters of the stream near Fort Wayne. He also states that the same autumn a de Jbsehment of British soldiers could 'rffH sacend .the,r-6andusky river in canoes by reason of great drought 'vSEd low water when they contempla ;$ed subduing the hostile Shawnees .. an the Scioto-valley. Here is a record alt -widespread drought, while the for sost nd prairie were yet primeval and foelore the coming of the-. white set- . tier with those modern - drought jnakers, the ax and the drain tile." The destructive power of the ma ifchioe an as compared, to the small ana ewa in large numbers has been he subject of interesting - trials sibread, reports of which have reached tbe navy department here, says the UaHrtnore Sun. ., .;, ' ,- v ... ,, That one machine gun properly and effectively worked is equal to 200 rifles in tbe hands of as many soldiers has lieeo. amply demonstrated. Each shot Irom the machine gun works greater injury also to the body struck than the small bullet of the army rifle, and its xange is far greater. i - , -:-Jt i- la recent trials 50 marksmen were eihosen to compete with the Hotch ,4ciss eight-millimeter gun, which has lately been widely adopted in France and Germany. .The ranges fired were $xom 400 to 800 yards. At 800 yard the 50 riflemen, each having- five rounds In dependently, -obtained 54 hits, or 22.6 per cent, of the number of rounds tired. Thirty-two men "were- then chosen from among, the 50, and these &ad to fire each eight rounds in 30 seconds. Under these conditions 34, or 13.3 per cent, of the rounds ex- 'pended, were recorded.' - ; l Tie machine gun was then brought into action, and in 38 seconds fired 211 fculleta, making . 145 hits. It was sshowa. from the results that the ma chine gun was far ahead in hits made and rapidity of fire. , No such practical - t.esta-of the relative merits of the ma chine grrn and a number of small arms bave been made before. PAJTTALOONS WITH LINING. fa Used to Bo Worn Bat Are Neverj Heard Of In Taeeo - ..- Day. . '.. An old clothing merchant in Chicago, 'whose sons have been his successor ' tor many years, was in the store the -other day for the first time in seven .years, reports the Tribune. - '- . -. "I suppose you have no pantaloons with lining' he said to his eldest boy, mho replied that he had never heard of such a thing. "We used to keep them in stock," continued the father. "As a rule I think most pantaloons with lining were home-made, - Your mother made Vthe first I ever saw, and I wore 'em. " I -ttink the lining was of some sort of cambric. But there were a few of my old customers who bought ready-made clothes of me, many years ago, and they insisted that their pantaloons should be lined. They had an idea that lining made the fit better. But the tailors I employed hated the work, and always charged more for putting in. 4he lining. One of my customers, who wouldn't live long if he had to-wear ready-made -clothes now, took a fancy to a pair of mnlined pantaloons, .but ' refused to -.make the purchase unless I had lining Jut in. That was in 1850. My tailor said he never -heard of such a thing, 5ut I insisted. . He' had to take the pantaloons apart unstitch the seams and then put in the lining: It took him over a week to do the job. The cus Onm got mad in waiting and refused - to take the pantaloons. I sued him and .got judgment, and he wouldn't peak to me lor over a year. I saw him pass the house last week riding with his grandchildren in an automobile. I oppose he would have got hot if I had reminded him of the time, when 1 he wore lined pantaloons, and he had straps to them besides, so as to keep - them in shape, I remember when a man who didn't wear straps to his pantaloons . was -not considered well dressed, and that was right here in Chicago."

Rodica and Dood- ica, two young and. pretty Hindoo girls who are linked together '- like the Siamese : twins have passed through a trying condition. Rodica caught brnochitis, but Doodica remained perfectly healthy. A physician attached to . the circus in which. the twins., were exhibited declared that Rodica was in danger of dying atany instant and feared that the sister would be infected. Consequently the girl twins were sent to the Kousseau hospital to see if ihey could be safely cut apart. It was decided that the operation would be extremely dangerous. "Yet," the head surgeon said, "if one dies can't possibly bury both.";. . . V Fortunately science cured the sick twin and saved; the healthy one from infection, j . to Cape Martin is only postponed. I will start again as soon aa-1 can get readyi This .accident was due to the entanglement of the guide rope with the ecrew - and wires of the ballooii.
