One paper was so confident o
would be found that it came out in
an article and said, "We will strike
oil this afternoon."
Gov. Jenkins was a bidder at
the stock sale at the college Tues-
day. But like belonging to the
Board of Regents, he was just an
Stroud people can hear the gur-
gling of oil and feel confident of a
rich supply. Stroud wanted to
lower the saloon license but in-
stead lowered an oil drill and have
so far succeeded.
A dispatch from Honolulu says
that many of the Porto Ricans who
were sent to Hawaii to work on
the sugar plantations arrived there
in a badly emaciated condition.
None of them will be able to do
any work until they have been re-
stored to health and strength with
goed food, and some of them will
aever be of use as day laborers.
It seems strange that nobody ever
looked into the Porto Rican emi-
gration movement. Soon after the
first shipload of these people were
landed in this country, on their
way to the Pacific coast, wh;re they
were to take ship for Hawaii, it
was announced that they were re-
luctant to go to that far-away place.
Indeed, it was stated that it became
necessary to lock the car to prevent
their escape from the trains on
which they were being transported.
Once or twice there was almost an
•pen mutiny. Now it is intimated
that these poor people suffered
from lack of food during the voy-
age across the Pacific.
It might not be out of place to
inquire into the matter. It may
be that the owners of the planta-
tions have done nothing wrong,
but it would be nothing surprising
to discover that these people were
coaxed away from Porto Rico by
false representations, and if that is
the case the government should
put a stop to the business at once.
The forcible taking of Porto Rican
laborers to Hawii for service there
looks too much like slavery to be
tolerated by this government.

ARTIFICIAL WILTED FLOWERS
The Latest and Sonrruie Triumph of
the Imltatora of ,\a-
Dame Nature must spare no effort
next spring if she hopes to outdo Dame
Art in the production of flowers of the
field and the garden, says a fashion au-
thority. The velvet geraniums, pelar-
goniums, roses, poppies, fuchsias,
chrysanthemums, marguerites, tulips,
etc., that make up the floral display iu
the shops just now are marvels of love-
liness ill grace and color. Kvery wom-
an dressmaker is loading the evening
gowns with garlands of rich blossoms,
and so strong is the influence of the
flowers that the gowns are given the
names of the posies they exploit.
One orders, for example, an orchid
dinner dress, or a geranium ball toilet,
or an iris opera frock, and the whole
color scheme of the costume is laid
down with a view to harmonizing w ith
the tufts and festoons of brilliant
blooms. Enormous shoulder knots of
velvet roses or big pastel tinted peonies
ornament every black dress, and, not
content with garlanding the gowns,
women pin mighty nosegays on their
evening wraps, ou their ostrich feath-
ers and chenille boas and on their
chiffon and ermine muffs.
1 o render the flowers even more tri-
umphantly conspicuous by gaslight,
they are spangle^, or glitter with"sll
\er dust along the edges of their vel
\et and silk muslin petals. This very
frankly announces ths floral gar-
nitures as artificial, hut dues not de-
traet from their beauty, though one
of the oddest and most loterestlng spe-
cies of this false flora it the charming
wilted blooms that one irtistlc and en-
terprising niHi Vacturei has produced.
His willed (lowers are made of lib-
erty silk and are so amazingly natural
in appearance that only by actual
touch ami close in.-petition can the de-
ception be discovered. A chiffon gow n
trimmed entirely with pale yellow and
pink willed roses was voted the first
prize by the women at a fashionablo
ball in New Vork, where no less thau
a couple of bushel bv.kets of artificial
blossoms were used ut the ornamenta*
tioii of the costuiuca
I saw an article in one of the
technical journals recently," said a
New Orleans engineer, relates the
Times-Democrat, "describing a so-
called 'centrifugal cannon.' which
some genius In Manchester, P'nglaud,
was supposed to have invented. The
mechanism was said to consist of a
big wheel, which was revolved at a
tremendous rate of speed while pro-
jectiles, fed into groou*. on its sur-
face. were hurled through a barrel,
on the same principle that a boy
throws a stone from a sling. 1 could
piece of paper and convince
you in two minutes that the thing is
a mechanical impossibility, but the
story intarested me because it recalled
a very similar device which 1 saw
years ago at Louisville, Ky.
was the invention of a fierman
machinist named Geisemann, and I
went to look at it at the solicitation
of a friend, who imagined he had
struck a big thing. I found Cieise-
niann at a little shop in the suburbs
of the city, and he proved to be an
extremely intelligent fellow who, un-
fortunately, lacked technical educa-
tion. His 'gun' was set up in the
engine room of the place, and I
couldn't help smiling when I saw it.
Jt consisted of a flywheel about five
feet in diameter, with an attachment
for holding half a dozen small can-
non balls against the rim and re-
leasing them at fi\ed intervals. The
idea was to connect the wheel with
a steam engine and. when it attained
a certain velocity, to let loose the
balls just as they passed a given point
in the revolution. Geisemann had fig-
ured that they would fly off at a right
angle and hit a target at the other
end of the shed, and he invited me to
be present at the test he was going to
give the following week. To please
my friend I went around and I shall
never forget the ludicrous contre-
temps that wound up the experiment.
About 20 of us were grouped near
the wheel when the inventor slipped
on the engine belt and began to speed
" "1 - I suppose it was making a
couple of hundred revolutions a min-
ute when he touched the spring con-
nected with the release mechanism
and a big\ black cannon ball instantly
soared off at a tangent and went
crashing through the skylight. The
next missile struck a huge pile of
casting, bounced off and hit the boiler
With a smash like 40 bass drums all
being beaten at once. Kxactlv where
the others landed 1 can't say', for by
that time 1 was beating a rapid re-
treat; but it seemed to me that it was
raining cannon balls for at least five
minutes. Several of the visitors were
bowled over like ninepins, and every-
tiling in the engine room was more or
less damaged except the target. That
escaped unscathed. Geisemann him-
•elf had crawled into an ash pit at
the first fire, and when he was
dragged out he was a pitiable-looking
object. He was weeping bitterly, but
stuck to it that he had simply made
an error in his 'calculation of curves'
and that the gun was all right.
"1 never saw it again, and supposed
It was consigned to the scrap heap.
If T ever attend another centrifugal
gun exhibition I shnf insist on a con-
ning tower four feet thick as a coign

That explosions can be heard and
can produce an effect at a great dis-
tance is well known, but precise sta-
tistics on this point have only lately-
been gathered. Taking into considera-
tion the fact that much depends 011 the
formation of the-country and on the
condition of the w.ather prevailing at
the time, it ma} he admitted that a
cannon can be heard at a distance of
j kilom>'ters, and that an explosion of
dynamite can lie heard at a distance of
30 kilometers, suys the New Vork Her-
The explosion of a powder factorv
111 Anvers some years ago caused a ver-
itable earthquake, which was felt at ti
distance of more than 30 kilometers
Hie more recent explosion at St.
Helens, between Liverpool and Man-
chester, was even more notable in this
respect. The explosion took place In
a factory of chlorate of potassium, nn
explosive material, of which MO tons
Were destroyed. The explosion was
heard at Alderley Kdge, 39 kilometers
from St. Helen's, and at Murple. 43
kilometers from that city. In niunv
houses the windows were violently
shaken, and near the scene of the ca
tastrophe the ground was moved us

From these and other fucts scientists
row conclude that under favorable con-
ditions greut explosions may be fell
