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.
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

Paris, Feh, 8. 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. The balloon was not
fully inflated when I started. - See
ing that an accident was inevitable,
I pulled the emergency cord, but
pulled it harder than I intended.
This made a bigger rent than I
wanted. Consequently the airship
collapsed too quickly;"
