The Panama canal an te fortslest
terms is an inland lake accessible at
either end through locks. The few
miles of channel between the looks
and navigable water on either end are
mere accessories to the canal. The
great Culebra cut is important only be
cause of the work in making it. The
locks are the vital thing when the
work is done.
For these r-easons the board of for
tification decided that it was betwveen
these locks and the sea that the great
defenses should be built. The high
lands near the sea should be the loca
Lion of the coast dlefense stations. The
chief of these on the Atlantic side
would be on Tore point, commanding
Limon Bay and the entrance of the
canal. Another battery would be lo
cated acress the bay with the same
command. On the Paciflc side the
gr-eatest point of vantage would be
Battle point, with a twin battery on
the opposite side of the canal's mouth,
4 or possibly on the island of Culebra
in the harbor. All of these points
are en high ground and command the
waters within ten miles of the mouth
of the canal.
Military authorities today declare
that the coast defense is the most im
pregnable of all fortifications. Hours
of heavy bombarding from a powerful
navy should have little effect upon it,
* while in return the probabilities are
that It would send many battleships
to the bottom.
The mainstay of the coast defense
is the, disappearing gun. Those to be
used at Panama are to be of 14-inch
caliber, They will be placed back of
fortifications which are nothing less
than mountain ridges, for the coast
vdefense station is sunken underground
at the brow of some eminence. The
ammunition, the stores, the men whc
operate the guns, are all underground
with many feet of castiron betwoer
them and any intruding ob'ject.
Two styles of guns .are the mair
dependence of the coast defense, th(
14-inch guns and the rifled mortars

these. The mortar is a gun that never
appears above the breastworks. It re
mains out of sight and drops its mis

The missile takes a curve high int<
the air, but its course is so calculated
that it will drop upon the enemy
Powerful bombs are dropped into the
midst of the hostile camp at a dis
tance of nine miles. The armor of the
attacking vessel is avoided in thit
case and the shell is dropped in he1
The fortifncation board plans thi
building of breastwork fortification,
about the locks where they might b<
attacked by land. These works woul<
be erected at either end of the canal
In connection with them would be lai<
the foundation of a camp. Sewer
would be laid, water put in. Thes
are the vital things in an army camp
With this preparation it would be p)os
sible at any time, having the sol'dieri
available, to moet any land invasion
Then it is planned to establish ai
army post at Culebra, the highest an<
healthiest point on the isthmus. Thi:
camp will be pitched on the edge o
the big cut opposite the town o
Culebra. A bridge will be throwi
across the cut to facilftate communi
cation. Here quar ters will be pre
pared for 5,000 soldiers. It will be
model army post for the tropics. Ce
mont will be the central idea in con
structions, and hollow wvalls will Iont
themselves to coolness. The moistur<
will have no effect upon them ani
ants may net devour them.
The garrison would consist of fou
regiments of infantry, one squadron c
cavalry and three batteries of field at
tillery. There would be some twely
companies of the coast artillery--1,30
men. These it is contemplated quar
toring near the Pacific end of th,
canal, but they could be quickly tranm
forred from one station to another.
So it seems reasonable to surmis,
that in the end the fortifications a
Panama will be such as the world ha
never before known.
If the strongest of naval forces c
the Pacific should attempt to att'ack
fragment of our navy at Balboa, th
Pacific terminus of the eanal, the gun
of the coast defense could hold
navy at bay until other battler
were brought through the canal.
same thing would be true if tI
tack were made on the Atlanti
with the process reversed.

Crippled by Tuberculosis.
According to a recent report by Dr.
Conrad liesalski of Berlin, there are
'75,000 cripples in the German empire
out of a population of 00,500,000. Over
50,000 of -the cripples are in needl of
prop~er treatment. Dootor Biesalski
states that in 15 per cent, of the crip
ples examined, their defornr ity was
due to tuberculosis of the bones and
joints, and that there were 10,000 such
children in great need of medical
treatment. He advocates the estab
lishment of seasidle sanatoria for this
latter chiass of cripples.
