VOL. XVIII. BKENHAM. TEXAS. WEDNESDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 13, 1893. NO. 229
Expensive Exi'f: iinent*.
It cost the people of rV United States
about |25,000 in a c '.pie of hours the
other day to settle in :ne minds of the
officers of the ordnance Vareau whether
some armor plates madi by the Carnegie
and Bethlehem steel works respectively
were as good as they ouj-'ht to he. It
was found that they wvv*\ and what
that means can be imagiu< 1 when one
of the plates was 17 inches t li^k, weighed
31J tons, and was attack' a by shells
weighing 850 pounds each, the last ones
fired from a 12 inch gun at a distance of
only 319 feet, striking it with the f< -rce
needed to move a mas#of 21,600 torn-, or
43,000,000 pounds, through a foot of
upace. The projectile went through.
We take it that that did not surpri o
even the experts, wKo are used to thinl -
ing about those inconceivable mas so*
and velocities. But what did surprise
them was that the hole it made was
nearly as clean as if it had been drilled,
and that not a crack appeared about its
edges. Though this particular projec-
tile was lost—having been deflected and
fallen into the Potomac—the other pro-
jectiles which penetrated the same plate
were found in perfect condition and fit
to be used again. That seem almost
more marvelous than the perfection of
Meanwhile the people of New York
may take some satisfaction in knowing
that down at Sandy Hook the war de-
partment has just mounted a gun that
will throw a 1,000 pound projectile and
make a hole in the heaviest armorclad
nhip now afloat at a distance of six
miles. If we must spend money on what
we hope are purely peaceful experiments,
it is a comfort to know what we get for
Illustrated Journalism In England.
A countryman who has been endeavor-
ing to obtain some definite ideas about
the royal wedding functions from the
various illustrated papers applies to me
for help and enlightenment. His be-
wilderment is natural. He finds in the
first place that we seem to have a new
queen reigning over us, for her majesty's
features in the illustrated paper bear no
resemblance to the authorized portraits
of Queen Victoria. A still more re-
markable fact is that in the course of
the festivities her majesty seems to have
continually changed her habiliments.
One of the special artists shows her
with an ermine train. Another repre-
sents her with no train at all. Another
shows her with a crown on her head.
Another appears to have seen her only
a few minutes later in a bonnet.
One picture represents the queen and
her guests all taking lunch at one table.
Another places them at different tables.
One paper surpasses itself by two views
of the route to the railway station, in
each of which the royal couple are pro-
vided with a totally different carriage
*und different horses and attendants. I
think I can explain how these discrep-
ancies arise. Probably some of the so-
cial artists dispatched to sketch the wed-
ding made their sketches at Henley.—
A Quaker In Westminster Abbey.
An extraordinary 6cene took place dur-
ing the afternoon (service in Westminster
abbey yesterday. Samuel Fox, a Quak-
er. who is well known to the attendants
for his persistent efforts to remain cov-
ered during divine services, declining to
remove his hat, was after a violent
(struggle forcibly ejected. It required
the efforts of four of the vergers to re-
, move him from the building. Fox is
well known in Oxford, where he has ad-
dressed several meetings on the subject.

Dear Sirs:—I bought a bottle of your P.

Messri. Lippman Bros., Savannah, Ga.:
Dear Sirs:—I wish to give my testimonial
in regard to your valuable medicine, P. P. P.,
for the cure of rheumatism, neuralgia, dys-
pepsia, biliousness, etc. In 1861 I was at-
tacked with bilious muscular rheumatism,and
have been a martyr to it ever since I tried
all medicines I ever heard of, and all the doc-
tore in reach, but I fijund only temporary re-
lief; the pains were se bad at times that I did
not care whether I lived or died. My diges-
tion became so impaired that everything I ate
disagreed with me., My wife also suttered so
intensely with dyspepBia that her life was a
burden to her; she would be confined to her
bed for weeks at the time; she also suffered
greatly trom giddiness and loss of sleep. Some
time in Marcn I was advised to take P. P. P.,

Blossom & Co., 217 N. Third street, St.
Louis, writes: I had been left with a very
distressing cough, the result of influenza
; which nothing seemed to relieve, until I took
Ballard's Horehound Syrup. One bottle
completely cured me. I sent one bottle to
my sister, who had a severe cough, and she
experienced immediate relief. I always rec-
ommend this syrup to my friends.
John Cranston, 908 Hampshire street,
Qumcy, 111., writes: I have found Ballard's
Horehound Syrup superior to anjr other
cough medicine 1 have ever known.
