AUTOMATON IDEA NOT NEW
1264 Friar Bacon Constructed a
Bronze Head Which Spoke—
Other Early Uivention*.
Automaton figures, made to imi-
tate the actions of living beings, are
of early invention, remarks an ex-
hauge. Archista’a Hying dove was
formed about 400 B. C. Friar Ba-
con is said to have made a brazen
head which spoke, 1264 A. D. Al-
bertus Magnus spent thirty years in
making another. A coach and two
horses, with a footman, a page and
woman inside, were made bv Ca-
mus for lx>uis XIV. when a child in
1649; the horses and figures moved
naturally, variously and perfectly.
Ypucanson, in 1738, made an artifi-
cial duck, which performed many
functions of a real one—eating,
drinking and quacking; and he also
made a flute player. The writing
automaton, exhibited in 1769, was a
pentagraph worked by a hidden con-
federate. An automaton chess player,
invented by Baron Kempelen of
Fresburg, Hungary, 1769, and
known as “Maelzel’s chess player,”
excited intense curiosity wherever ex-
hibited for many years. This was
also worked by a concealed person;
so was the “invisible girl.” Early in
the nineteenth century an automa-
ton was exhibited in London which
pronounced several sentences with
tolerable distinctness. The “anthro-
poglossus,” an alleged talking ma-
chine, exhibited at Ht. James’ hall,
Ixmdon, July, 1861, was proved to
he a gross imposition. The exhibi-
tion of the talking machine of Pro-
fessor Faber of Vienna in I»ndon
began August 27, 1870, at the Palais
Royal, Argyll street. The automatic
chess player at the Crystal palace in
1873. Psycho, an automatic card
player, was exhibited in lxmdon in
1875. An automatic hare was hunt-
ed at ilvuduu, near London, iu 1876.
“I Managed to Pull Myself Up on tha
the side of the road as quickly as I
could and Jumped out. When the
horse went by I grasped for the bri-
dle, but missed It. I succeeded In
getting hold of the harness and was
dragged some distance. In some way
I managed to pull myself up on the
horse's back. I then reached for-
ward and caught the bridle reinB as
near the horse's mouth as possible.
1 pulled on the reins and brought
the animal down to a trot, and final-
ly to a standstill.
“Then I tied the horse to a fence
and got a piece of rail and raised the
wagon off the young man, who by this
time was unconscious. I feared at
the time he was dead, for he had
been dragged some distance under
the wagon. In a short time, however,
he rallied and helped me to get the
rig straightened around. He was able
to drive home.
“I thought nothing more of the oc-
currence until the next day, when
the boy’s father met me In Sharon
and wanted to reward me. for, as he
said, saving his boy's life. Of course
I refused to take any reward for slm
ply doing my duty.”
ROOSTER KILLS A SNAKE
Kaoka Reptile to Pieces With Beak
and Spur*—Hem “Root**
Worthington, Ind.—A light to tha
death occurred here the other day
It was wltnesaed by C. ti. Corbin and
Hamilton Welton aud a flock of chick-
en*. geeae and other fowl*. Mr. Cor-
bin* hat* a large poultry yard, and
when he went into It he Haw a rooster
had attacked a unake two feet long
11m snake had crawled under the
fence and frightened the poultry A
big rooster saw the reptile and made
a dash toward It. The snake lifted
Its head und hissed Then the rooster
struck It with its spurs and beak.
The snake attempted to coll Itself
^bout the rooster’s body, but Its anta-
gonist was too quick, and flapped the
snake off with its wings Finally the
rooster seized the snake with its beak,
and ran uround the enclosure, shaking
the snake violently, as a dog shakes
a rat When the wriggling of the
snake ceased, the rooster dropped the
reptile to the ground, spurred it re-
peatedly, centering its attack ou the
neck until it was dead
The light lasted thirty minutes, and
the watchers say It was the most des
perate contest they ever saw. The
hens cackled as the light progressed.
They seemed to be rooting fo. theli
master. When the affair was over the
victorious rooster leaped on the fence
and crowed lustily. The snake was
almost hacked to pieces in the light,
and it was soon torn into fragments
und eaten by the rooster's floe*
A Marvelous Escape.
"My little boy had a msrvelous
escape,” writes P. F. Bastiams
of Prince Albert, Cape of Good
Hope. “It occurred in the mid-
dle of the night. He got a very
severe attack of croup. As luck
would have it, 1 had a large bot-
tle of Chamberlains Cough Rem-
edy in the house. After follow-
ing the directions for an hour
and twenty minutes he was
through all danger.” Sold by
