U?JIB NAVY AND MARINE CORPS
An Annapolis special to the Baltimore Sun
says: "For the purpose of ascertaining to what
extent an armor plate can be affected by freez
iiig, the authorities at the U. H. naval proving
ground Thursday experimented with the
French nickel plate, which has been tested on
several former occasions with good results.
The plate had been frozen to about 4 degrees
below zero. The 7th shot fired at tho plate,
the projectile being of the same character as
those used in the test several months ago, penc
tiattd tho plate about tho samo distance that
tho previous shots did, but did not go through
it, and as far aB could be observed had no
greater effect on the plato than when it was at
normal temperature. The test demonstrated
that whiter weather will not render the armor
of our vessels easier to penetrate."

Don't Uive to Eat.
From London Truth.
Tho persons living to green old ago who have
come within range of my observation were ab
stemious themselves, and cither sprang from
noor families or came from the South, where
heavy meals are not enjoyable. M. do Lesseps
is almost Oriental in his abstemiousness at the
table, he being of a Southern family and having
lived long in hot countries, which aro as healthy
as auy to those who adapt themselves to tho
climate. Catherine de Medici made it a rulo to
rise from the table with an appetite, and to pre
fer lentils and onions and chestnuts to meat.
Stanley greatly explains his success when ho
says that all ho wants Is a crust of bread, a
mouthful of meat when he cau get it, and a cup
of tea. I once knew an impresario, who was
also a Jew. Ho held carnivorous feeding in
horror, and told me he never lost his time seok
iug for fine voices in countries whero llsh or
meat diet prevailed. Tho vocal birds are eaters
of grain, fruit, and vegetables; no carnivorous
one could ever sing a song. It croaks, has a
bad llvci, and is generally melancholy.
The Benefit, of Collee.
From tlieScIontiflc American.
Dr. 1. M. Love, of St. Louis, in a paper on
this subject, said that his experience for 11 vo or six
years past had been strongly in favor of taking a
cup or strong, black coflee, without cream or
sugar, between two glasses of hot water, before
rising every morning at least an hour before
breakfast. The various secretions were stimu
lated, the nervous force was aroused, an hour
later a heaity meal Was enjoyed, and tiio day's
labor was beguu favorably, no matter how tho
duties of tho day and night preceding might
have drawn upon the system. Auotbcr cup at
4 iu the afternoon was sufficient to sustain flic
energies for many hours. Iu this way tho full
effect was secured. If along with this tho
proper diet was taken at tho proper times aud
the ideal diet for those who make largo
draughts upon their nervous systems und ex
pected to have them honored was hot milk
and at least eight hours of sleep were taken out
of every tweuty-four, one's capacity for work
would lie almost unlimited.
