The Disappearing Lady,
The terms "madam" and "air" are
now employed much less than former
ly, according to a book called "The
A B C of Correct Speech," though, It
anya, children "should be taught to use
theae terms In apenklug to ladles nnd
gentlemen of tho old school." "Lady"
ha also passed out of uo In circles In
which It was formerly current, except,
curiously, the author observe, when a
boHtess talk to "her cutoror or her

E STRUCK BY

Waablngton, 8'pt. 15. How a
H-ln h aolld md aholl tor atralght
through a homo near the government
testing ground at Indian Head, Md.,
passing through tho room adjoining
that In which were a woman and her
three daughters, waa reported to
Washington today.
It was the first 18-inch aboil ever
fired In the United States. Sailing
from the mouth 6f the flrat 16-Inch
gun erer set up In thl country to be
teated, the shell tore a thick aoctlon
of tough armor plate, thenoe through
a huge hank of aand and, tilting up
ward as a result of this resistance,
derrlbcd a mile-long arc through the
air.
Mrs. Mary Swann had Just flnlahed
her preparations of the evening meal
for her huaba'nd, one of the men
handling tha guns. One of her chil
dren had followed her Into the dining
room, Joining her 18-year-old daugh
ter. There was a terrific roar and
craah. The house shook. When ahe
recovered from her fright Mrs. 8wann
went Into tho kitchen. There were
great, gaping boles in opposite walls.
Ontnide the house lay the huge masi
of steel, still hot.
Thla was about three weeks ago.
Indian Head la only 54 miles from
Washington, but la almost aa Isolated
aa a desert town. That Is the ex
planatlon of the time, elapsing be
tween the Incident and Its being given
out.
DRILLED TO PERFECTION.
Seerat of the Military 8uccm of "the
Madman of th North."
From drill man gets accoatoraed to
doing under any circumstance what
baa been hammered Into hi brain time
after tlmo till It become second nature
to him.
Charles XII. of Sweden, "tbe mad
man of tbe north," ripped most of
Europe up the back again and again
because his soldier were drilled to
perfection before be let them take the
field at a tlmo when there waa great
neglect of drill In other armies. He
valued 1.000 well drilled fightera above
10,000 not ao well drilled, and. madman
or genlu. hi Judgment waa vindicated
repeatedly In terrible battle.
One night Charlea XII. was aurprled
In PolamMiy an attacking army of
8.000 wben'hl aennt force of 000 waa
steeping like the dead from the ex
haustion of a hard march. Before his
outposts and sentinel could lie driven
In hi amall band waa aroused, mount
ed, formed In battle line-nil In pitchy
blacknesa and awung Into a fierce
charge upon the enemy. By daylight
the Itusslnns and Poles who bad
thought to eat him up, were virtually
annihilated.-Westminster Gazette.
Hew Cloud Are Colored.
The color of a cloud doteiida on the
manner In which the sunlight falls
upon It and tie position of the ob

color, and thl I lieeauo the light by
which they are aeeu U reflected from
the under surraco by the numberless
drop of moisture which ro to form
tbe cloud. Heavy rain cloud, on the
other hnnd. are found much nearer the
earth, and o the llplu fall on them
more directly from above, giving a sil
ver lining to the cloud, though the un

tho complete tetlcctlon and absorption
of the light bv tho upper luyers. Seen

In Greenland when one man has
been Insulted by another the adversa
ries each compose a satire in verse.
Thl each man recite to hi household
until the servants nnd the women
know It by heart. Then a place of
meeting I appointed. The two men,
the Insultcr and Insulted, the offender
and tho offended, aland face to face,
and each recite hi poem. Ilia friend
and aorvnnt form a chorus. Each man
trie hard to raise tho laugh against
his ndversiiry. Each man speaks In
turn, whipping the enemy with epi
gram ami quip, and after two hour of
this wordy battle the meeting gives
the victory to him of the two adverse
rles who hu amused the whole as
aemlily most,
An Odd Team. '
