While at the Camp Compson range
yesterday Captain Jones conducted
some experiments to determine the
penetrating force of the blank car
tridges used in the recent Bliara battle.
He found that a rifle, loaded with a
blank charge such as was used, and
fired ut ten Inches range at a board one
inch in thickness would tear a ragged
bole through the timber of much great
er proportion than if the rifle were
loaded with ball. Other tests proved
that the blank charge was deadly at a
much greater range. Salem Democrat.
A movement is on foot to form a
stock company in this city to build a
river boat to ply tlie upper Willamette
from Eugene as far down as Albany
and Corvallis. W. R. Johnson, an ex
perienced boat builder, is here and is
willing to subscribe a luige fraction of
the capital stock necessary, and also to
give bonds for the faithful performance
of the work of construction. A stock
subscription paper is being circulated.
The proposition Is to form a company
with 7,500 capital, divided into 750
shares of $10 each; the bout to be built
at or near Eugene and to be of suffi
cient capacity for the currying trade at
this point. Lumber, hardware, etc.,
necessary to be used in the work of
construction may be subscribed at the
actual market price. Eugene Guard.

The writer is glad to see this for a par
ticular reason. The reason is that no
man should be considered indispensa

the government can get along without
the services of a single individual,
which has been heretofore doubted by
many persons. Nobody Is indispen
sable. The world will go on much the
same after every reader of this is re
moved from earthly scenes. Of course
there will be a sort of temporary sus
pension of things terrestrial when some
of us let go, hut very soon thereafter

The above is the first intimation that
we have ever hud that the Statesman

Bold Train Robbers.
Kkndam.tii.i.e, Ind., Sept. 12. An
other daring and successful train rob
bery Is on record. Tbe New York
express train oh the Lake Shore road,
which left Chicago at 7:45 last night,
reached a siding at Keslar, five miles
west of here, at 1 o'clock this morning.
Approaching: it, engineer Knapp no
ticed a red danger-signal light at the
switch, and stopped the train. As he
did so, 20 men. armed with Winches
ters, sprang ot of the woods, scattered
along the traia and covered the train
men, while one fired at the engineer,
inflicting a wound Ih the shoulder.
With everything In hand, the robbers
proceeded to blow open the forward
express car with dynamite; then knock
ing the express messenger senseless,
exploded five dynamite cartridges in
succession against the safe before it
yielded. They helped themselves to
Its contents, the whole performance oc
cupying an hour, when without mak
ing any attempt on the other express
car, or interfering with the passengers,
who remained in the cars, panic-stricken,
they fl recta few warning shots and
disappeared In the woods. It is ru
mored they secured $250,000 in transit
from one of tke Chicago banks to New
York. The rumor is not yet verified.
Tbe train came on here and the alarm
was given, and the sheriff at once sum
moned a posae and started in pursuit
of the bandits.

The following article is from a foot
note to a world's fair correspondent's
letter to the Scientific American, in
which reference was made to a Canada,
backwoodsman who made a visit to
the fair, traveling about a thousand
miles In a crude dugout.
"The man's name is Antoine
Brousaeait. Although unable to
read or write, he heard of the
Fair and made up his mind to visit it.
He found un old leaky punt about IS
feet long which had been abandoned,
patched it up, and tleeided to use it an
his means of transportation . With the
aid of favorable winds, a horse blanket
and an old wooden paddle, he succeed- .
ed In reaching Chicago after trave'ing
a distance of something like 1,000
miles. His only companion wus his
dog Pete. Before he left his northern
home he hud never seen a railroad or
an electric light; had never heard a
band of music or the whistle of a
steamboat. At one of the points on
his way a band of muslo was playing,
and there also he first gazed upon the
wonders of electricity. He ft as so car
ried away with what he saw and heard
that be thought he bad reached
heaven. The region whence Broussean
comes is as wild to-day as it was when
Chicago was only a trading post, the
temporary stopping place of men like
himself. He says that he has lived in
the woods for months at a tfme with
out seeing a human face. He was born
and raised in the wilderness, and until
he started on this wonderful voyage of
Ills he was ignorant of the conditions
of life in the great werld beyond the
