. . Ethiopian Artillery. The king of Daho'mey receivepl some Krupp cannon not long ago and conceived the idea of having them mounted on elephant's backs for use in the field. With much difficulty this project was carried out and at the next artillery re- view the king ordered that one of the guns be fired immediately first taking the precaution to face a couple of thousand prisoners where it was calculated the ball would strike so as to judge of the effectiveness of the shot. When all was ready one of the biggest elephants was backed around and Bighted. Just as the landyard was jerked however the animal turned half round to reach for a peanut or something and the shell took off the prime minister's head and knocked a hole as big as sewer through the royal palace. His majesty wouldn't have cared eo much if the matter had ended there as the minister wasn't very prime and the palace needed ven- tilation but it didn't. On the contrary which had been stood on its head by the recoil picke...

Be Watchful of the Boys. Bill Cook is said to be only twenty-one years of age and his brother Jim who is serving a term in the pen only eighteen. This is largely the result of lax discip- line at home. In the good old days when little boys were fre- quently introduced to their moth- er's slippers and larger ones were called to meet in convention with their fathers in the woodshed criminals were not made of such young men and they were not so 1 plentiful. To see a cut-throa at eighteen to twenty-five is a ter ble thing to us. Parents .if your children find no laws at home which they are bound to respect the will when they meet the laws of the state not to their taste sim ply shoot them all to pieces. Yoi are in a great measure particeps criminis in every criminal action of which your children shall be guilty if you have neglected to in still into them a wholesome dread of the consequences of disobedi- ence.

RANDOM THOUGHTS. Immigration and Emigration. In nearly every town there is some local tradition that people who once drink of the waters of the stream flowing by or of its springs or wells and who after- wards leave in search of a new location are never satisfied until they return. There is more good reason in this than would at first be thought not that th.ere are any magnetic properties in the water which irresistibly draw the people back but as we are creatures who draw our ideas of happiness and comfort largely by comparison a little travel from a town or com- munity is apt to satisfy us that the place where we have lived is about as good as other places. -For this reason many people who leave a place in which they have; spent a good portion of their lives in after years return well satisfied "to spend their remaining days there. There is no man who can be such an obstruction to. the tempor- al spiritual and moral growth and development of a country as the dissatisfied man" and ...

V ' Clark and Silver;. A friend of the white metal lias handed The Bulletin the follow 1 ' r mg .article from the Corsicana Light in reply to a recent letter from George Clark on the silver question. It is well worth a care ful reading: Yesterdays Light contained a letter from Judge Clark in reply to a very meek little postal ca.3 oh which not a word was intimated as to the predelections of this paper or the writer regarding the stand xird of currency. Yet the Judge "in an honest effort to be interest ing" applies the term of silver lunatic accuses us of being one of many who are playing idiot; jetc. The letter is of course interesting everything Judge Clark writes is so but it is as a great many of his.; acts absolutely devoid of common ense.

Mulhatton Playing Tramp Joe Mulhatton arrived in Los Angeles the other day from Arizo na contrary -to his custom he looked serious and instead wearing fine raiment he was made up as a tramp" and declared he had just for amusement traveled from Arizona as an amateur brake beam rider and he looked the part to a dot. He wore five-day- old whiskers a coat that might have adorned several generations of "Duty Rhoades" a pair of trous ers that not only bagged at the places where the knees ought to be but were not and a hat that would have delighted Dr. Daly. It was the real old cheerful liar Joe Mulhatton however and he had a joyful day calling on old friends from New York and Louisville. Col.

Sculpture. Sculpture and education are twin sisters. We are told that a statue lies hid in every block of marble and that the art of statuary only clears away the superfluous matter and removes the rubbish. The figure is in the stone and the sculp tor only finds it. What sculpture is to the block of marble educa lion is or ought to be. to the "human mind. n point 01 lime sculpture was probably the earliest of the imita tive arts the moulding of clay and other plactic substances into defi- nite shapes; being to an imperfect- ly educated mind a more obvious method of copying an object than the representation of its appear ance by lines on a flat surface Thus we see that sculpture is the mother of painting. The origin of sculpture is so in volved in myths and allegories that an attempt to ascribe its in vention to a particular nation or individual is impossible. So far as our knowledge extends ithasno particular oirtnpiace out sprung up naturally in all countries tak ing its origin eve...
