The Mouser



News-Commentary, Drollery


Military Technology, Crime

    Notes from The Times that the Prussians have 'invented a most destructive gun called "the Mouser"' (a mis-spelling of 'Mauser'). Suggests that the Prussians use the gun on 'our garotters' to 'save us the trouble of applying the cat'.
