Descriptive Account of the New Arm of the
French Army.
Tho Lvbcl rifto, aa the now arm Is
called, was invented hy Lioutonant
Colonrl Lobel, principal of the artillery
sehool at Chalons. Its remarkable
qualities are lightness, long range ami
extraordinary penetrating power. Ac
cording to tho scientific researches ol
the mathematician, Frof. llebler, it
was supposed that tho absolute!- per
fect army rifle should be a weapon
with a caliber of precisely seven mill
imeters. The Lebel rifle has not so
small a caliber, but oilers' the nearest
approach to it ret. made viz.: Eight
millimeters. With this caliber the ad
vantages are: a lighter cartridge; a
greater penetrating power, and a much
less liability of the missile to be devi
ated from its course by a strong Wind.
The ball is so covered with steel and
brass, as to enable it to preserve its
form and to follow precisely the
graves of the barrel. Its initial xe-
locity is exactly 100 meters per second
greater than that of the Gras rifle.
which had an initial velocity of 450
meters, while tho Leliol boasts ft ve
locity of 510 meters. It revolves upon
itself 5,000 times per second always
traveling point first. At a distance ol
1,800 meters its lire is as fatal as within
a lesser distance; and as the line of the
projectile is almost perfectly straight.
extraordinary hits can be made
at immense ranges. To obviate the
shock of recoil consequent upon so
prodigious an expelling force, a special
powder has been invented by Colonel
Hrngere, which detonates progressively
without smoke and with comparatively
little noise. The shooter feels the
weapon push docs not feel a sudden
and painful jar. Three wooden shields
placed at alout Iwcnty-nve yarns apart
wore easily pierced in a straight line bv
one rifleshot the ball traveling on live
hundred meters further without chang
ing its course to strike the outlying
target aimed at precisely in the center.
The movable breech piece is shorter
than in the Gras rifle, but offers a
greater resistance and the recoil fol
lows the axis of the weapon.
On finding themselves in possession
of so extraordinar3" an . arm, it was for
some time a question with the military
authorities whether or not to adopt it
m its simplest form, as the best of
single-shot , breech loaders. IJut as
Austria is adopting the Mannlicher re
peater, Italy the Vitali repeater, Ger
many the Manse magazine gun. it
seemed necessary to make the Lebel
a repeater also; as troops armed with a
single shot rifle only, however good.
would easily become demoralized by
the more conviction .that they were
face to face with enemies armed with
magazine guns English Paier.
How a Minneapolis Honsrkeeper Manage
i to Keep Her Servant.
She pays them liberally and prompt
ly, recognizing the fact, true the world
over, that the employer who beats down
wages always sutlers from the inferioi
quality, of work done, and from lack of
interest on the part of the employed.
Having a practical knowledge of the
business of housekeeping, she can not
l)e deceived, and knows how to direct
the work properly; and. while insisting
kindly, but firmly, that it shall be prop
erly performed, she never fails to give a
word of praise for all that merits her
approval. She never meddles with her
servants' particular ways of doing work
so long as good results arc produced
She doesn't think it necessary to sub
stitute her way for every body else's
She never lowers herself bv scolding.
Her servants are respectful to her be
cause she is respectful to them. No
familiarity is tolerated or attempted.
The private domestic life of the family
is never intruded upon. They have their
own apartments, cat by themselves ami
prefer to do so. 'And yet the mis
tress is not unmindful of their physical
and mental well-being. She has fitted
np a comfortable bedroom, with a good
spring bed and toilet necessities, and
adjoTning, a cozy little sitting-room.

where they can rest as women need to.
And several times a week they are in

Too much trouble to take for serv

yet she contrives to do it in the inter
vals of a busy life. She savs that it
isn't a quarter the trouble that it would
be to change servants every six weeks.
Those girls love her, and look up to

' Contagion or Anthrax.
Anin:als dying of anthrax splenic

disease to men who handle their car

A course of lectures Is being de
livered Saturday mornings at an East
ern college. Through the kindness ol
the lecturers, professors and tutors ol
the college tho lectures are free. Th
hour for tho lecture, as prominently
announced as tho subject, 11KX).
Promptly at that hour the lecturer
on a recent morning . began. For
twenty minutes after that time the
stragglers came In. singly or by twos
or threes. The hall is small, and after
tho first late comers ha I filled tho few
vacent scats camp chairs were carried
through the aisles. Tho lecturer had
a strong voice, but even it was unequal
to the task of drowning the footsteps
of half a dozen people, tho rustle of
garments, and the necessary confusion
attending tho seating of those, people.
Courtesy demanded that the guest!
should have been in their places at the
time designated by their entertainers.
Certainly there can be no justification
of their tardiness. Closed doors should
greet people who do not know the value
of time; they certainly can not gain
enough to coniponsalo those who give
time and talents to enrich their minds,
if they can not bo on time to meet the
lecturer's first words.
Punctuality is a grace of character
almost as far-reaching in its influence
as truth. Ho who steals my purse
steals trash, but he who steaU rtiy time
robs me of that which I can never re
gain, nor any human being be enriched
by its loss.
The laggards are tho impediment a of
life. Too much stress can not 1m laid
on the obligation of keeping engage
ments on time. And in public connec
tion but the rarest occurrences would
excuse the disturbing of an audienc?

hour. "It is an evidence of thoughtless

This. According to a Chiearo Judge, Is
the Chief Lack of Our Time.
One of the circuit judge of this city,
who has on many occasions presided
over the criminal court, and has had
ample opportunity to "know what he
is talking about," spoke the other
Since I have been on the bench I
have 'seen go down to darkness and
doom hundreds of youth of tender
years, men just ripening into manhoYxL
and those who have grown gray in
ciime, and have learned from the lips
of many of them that iu their youth
thev were thrown rudely upon the
world and never learned tho meaning
of tha words, common honesty.
In their peculiar world, the ideal man
is the cool and intrepid explorer who
lays tribute upon costly goods and
wares, who can nnloek all known com
binations of safes and bank vaults, and
who can face death unmoved ; or he is
the polished gentleman who has re
duced lying and deception to a fine art ;
and these gloat over their skill and
reputation. these are thieves.
How high does the standard of honesty
among mankind reach outside the court
of justice ? Here is the jail, and yon
der is the State's prison the one is the
gymnasium, the other the university of
crime. Lying and deception seem
to lie recognized av legiti
mate in the marts of com
merce, and fraud and misrepresenta
tion are among the most ordinary mat
ters for investigation in our courts.
The standard of public and private in
tegrity must be elevated, or all will
be lost. I give it as my candid opin
ion that the greatest evil with which
modern society and modern govern
ments arc afflicted is want of common
honesty. tho world has no
idea of economy, and extravagance is
but another term for dishonesty. The
words Conscientiousness and Common
Honesty ought to lc engraven on the

They Change with a Much Frequency aa
the Style In llaU and Bonnet.
It Is probable that if it were as easy
to discard an old suit of furniture and
procure a new one, as it is for those
who have the means to order a new
dress, our houses would never wear a
homelike or familiar look, for no sooner
would we become acquainted with the
vagaries of the chairs, bureaus and
other articles of furniture, and each
angle and protuberance be so well
known that they could be avoided lit
tho dark, than we would have to ac
custom ourselves to a new arrange
ment and map out a new chart. As it
is, a suit of furniture which five or six
years ago held a leading position In
fashionablo circles, is to-day looked
upon as out of date. It requires nlmut
five years for tho accomplishment of a
complete evolution in style. This,
perhaps, is a vety judicious arrange
ment, for the young couple that
have their house newly , furnished
when they set out together mav
have their home refurnished iu tlio
latest style when the fifth anniversary,
known as the wooden wedding. Is cele
brated. What will they do when tho
tenth nnniversary arrives? By that
time they should have money enough
to refurnish their house if they wish to
do so, or sense enough to care nothing
tortlie rules of fashion, rive years
ago about the only wood used in
the man uf art lire or furniture was
black walnut. Occasslonally a
bedroom suit in ash or white wood was
discovered, but such an object at
tracted as much attention as the wear
er of an India helmet would in a walk
down Broadway. To-tlay black wal
nut still holds a place in society, but
has been outranked bv mahogany, oak
and cherry. Bedroom suits made of
dark cross-grained mahogany are tho
chief attraction in furniture salesrooms
to-dav, and articles of furniture mad
of thi wood.comniand a higher price
than the same designs made up iji
other fashionable woods. There are
many purchasers, however, who prefer
the honest, sturdy-looking oak, or the
bright and warm looking cherry.
Mahogany was the most fashionable
cf all woods about a half century ago.
and no doubt there are stowed away in
cellars or attics, or still doing service
in the second or third generation, many
a bedstead, bureau or parlor suit which
is just sufficiently antique to meet the
prevailing demand. Mahogany will
take a high polish and will wear for
ever." as the dealers say, as it is very
tough. We know of one suit of furni
ture made of this wood which has sue
cessfully withstood the wear and tear
of two generations of boys and has n it
as mauy scars to-day as the boys them
selves. Oak furniture does not take aa
brilliant a polish as mahogany, black
walnut or cherry, but it has a business
like look and is preferred by many be
cause it has a more genuine nntiqne
appearance. This wood is but little
used in the manufacture of bedroom
suits, but for dinner chairs, desks hat
trees and chiffoniers it is preferred
There are marked shades in oak, and
in the manufacture of desks especially
a very pretty effect is produced by the
judicious combination of these shades.
Cherry is useu for almost every pur
pose and is selected generally in the
manufacture of Sleepy Hollow and
other more or less comfortable work
ing chairs and easy chairs. A. 1". Mail

"How about leprosy"
"I can tell you as much about leprosy
as any other man, but really I do not
pretend to understand it. The lepers
are banished to an island, from whence
they arc never allowed to return. No
Ixxly has ever been aide to learn
how leprosy originated or how it
can be cured. It appears in the
most curious ways, ami leaves men and
women untouched who have suffered the
greatest exposure. The most striking
instance of this fact is the case of the
present Queen of Hawaii. The King
is her second husband. Her first hus
band was a leper, and her two children
by him 1mUi died by the horrible dis
ease, and 3-et she is a perfectly healthy
woman. Nobodj- knows how leprosar
is communicated. The most eminent
authorities who have looked into tho
subject contend that it is not contagious.
Several years ago a white man was
condemned to death for a murder
which he had committed. The au
thorities allowed him to choose be
tween being executed or passing into
the hand of a noted German physician
for experimental purposes. The crimi
nal cheerfully chose the latter. He
was inoculated time and time again
with leprosy, but -the disease had no ef
fect upon him, and to-day lie is as
healthy a man as there is on the
islands. Leprosy does not often attack
the white race, for out of the thousands
of cases there are to-day only about a
half dozen Caucasians. These are facts
beyond dispute. In mv judgment
England will take some very aggressive
measures to obtain possession of the
islands before many years. The native
race is rapidly dying out, and it is a
question of a very short time before tho
country wilt pass under the control of
a foreign power." Washington Cor.
