TIu» African baboons show a marvel lous amount of intelligence. The Rev. John Isabel! tells how, when plundering plantations or gardens-not uncommon occurrences-the baboons sometimes . form a long' line from the gardens to their haunts, and pass along the stolen produce Front hand to hand. It is said they have been known to steal provi sions frqm a traveller, and then to stand *t a distance and mock him by making grimaces. . When engaged in robbing . Agarden the greatest silence is observed, . and should any thoughtless youngster make a noise, he receives a thrashing to teabh him better manners. Now and , then two troops meet when' on a plun dering expedition, and a fight ensues,' the animals who are furthest op the hill rolling down stones upon their enemies.. These wpapons ate sometimes usedagainst man."

HOW TO HANDLE A REVOLVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 15 August 1896

HOW TO HANDLE A REVOLVER. According to the best authority, the body most be balanced equally on each foot, slightly facing the target, and the arm held perfectly straight oat. The arm should never ba bent. The ha ad grasps the revolver high on the butt, with the thumb well around to the inside and straight, and the trigger finger entirely free. This throws the work of holding the revolver wholly oa the outer finger. Theobjectof this posi tion of the hand is to get the barrel in exact line with the arm when extended, thus bringing the target, the sights and eye in one line. This position also minimizes the effect of trembling and wabbling of the arm. The weapon being properly aimed, it should be held there and the trigger very gently and steadily pressed. The mind shonld forget the possibility of an explo sion, and the whole attention devoted to hold ing the sights of the revolver in cxactly the proper positiun on the target. Above- all things should the shooter keep np a steady pres...
