THE RUINS ON THE HILL
Richard of the Lion Heart

I'erbaps the loveliest spot tn all the

Now. ghostly and wan. the stark
ruin shimmers upon Its hill, with never
a single spear to gllut from keep or

The Parson Bird.
Among the feathered lubabttants of
New Zealand there Is a bird called the
parson bird, or tuL It Is about the
size and ahapo of a blackbird, but has
a pair of delicate white tufts at lu
throat aud Is a glossy dark green oth
erwise, which looks black In tbe sun
shine: It can be taught to crow, to
speak, to whistle tunes, and. besides
these tricks, It has repertory which
Is not often equaled by any other
feathered songster. At vespers it hn
a note like the toll of a boll or tbe
clear, high note of an organ.. VH can
mimic every bird in the bush to per
fectlon. It will break off In the mid
die of an exquisite melody and In
dulgo In a strange melody ot sound
which nro ImpoHHtble to describe, but If
you can Imuglue. "the eombnotlon ot
a cough, a laugh, n sneeze.' with, tbe
smashing of a pane of plans," It will
lie some approach to the Idea. ,
Prom Medlolne to the Drama.
Tho earlier part of Vlctorien Rnrdou's
career was besot with ninny trials and
dllllcultles. Ills parents wished him to
take up a mod Ion I career, nnd he began
his studies with some zenl, The love
of the drama, however, was tar greater
than tbo love of the plH bor, and tn the
Interval of the other work SarUou wa

for htm, for he tjud little money, though
be tuannged to got Journalistic work to

Ills first play was a failure, and Bar

never to enter one again. De fell eert

THE WHIP IN RIFLE PARRELS.
It la Caused by ths Pressure of Mod
ern Hlch Power Powder.
The use of hluli power powder tn rt
ties bus given rife to a ihenonivitou
which did uot exist III black powder
days Thia Is known as "w hip" and t
due to the prvwure and vibration set
up by the powder It la constant with
given loads and la always In the same
Sights are aligned by tbe manufac
turer to compensate for this whip In
proportion to the powder charge used
In firing auxiliary csrtildgvs it will of
teii be found that the rifle shoots oh
center. As a matter of fact tbe bullet
from tbe auxiliary Is traveling bra
true Hue with the bore, and It la the
sights that are wrong. Tbe tighter
charge of the auxiliary does not pro
duce tbe usual whip, with tbe result
that tbe line In prolongation or tbe
bore of tbe rifle along which the bullet
travels Is not the Hue uJven by the
alignment of tbe sights.
Two other rifle terms that must not
be confused are npsettago aud KeyboU
big. ICeyboltug Is tbe tendency of the
bullet to turn over lu flight, while up
settnge Is tbe slight shortening of tbe
major axis of the bullet due to tbe
forco of the charge. It was peculiar to
bluck powder fired behind lead bullet
and does not exist to any appreciable
extent lu metal Jacketed bullets with
smokeless powder lu tbe latter case
tbe charge burns more slowly and tbe
Jacket stiffens tbe bullet apalust tbe
sudden blow from beblnd.-Otitlug
