LESSONS FOll NAVAL MEN,

lu Naval Battle. I
Naval constructors aro in tho way i
. of learning things from tho Yalu ,
rivor light which willtnakua marked i
tlifforuiu'o in tho future outfitting of
I ships of war. Last week, through
1 tho aid of United States Minister
Dunn who, by tho way, lias all along
, been of most elltcient and courteous
service to tho corps of American
J correspondents 1 was put on a foot
! ing of acquaintanceship with a re
tired Japanese naval ollicer of rank.
With the usual proviso that his
name should have no publicity he
"As a result of tho Yalu naval on
i counter, tho electrical devices which
I are so common ou the modern war
ship, and hare been dcumed indis
pensable, must bo thrown out unless
i some way shall bo found to make
them of practical use during an en
gagement. When tho Japanese fleet
wont into action of course its ports
ami hatchways had to be closed with
I boiler pinto. This made the interior
1 of the vessels dependent for light
upon tho incandescent lamps. No
: sooner had tho batteries begun to
play than tho tremendous mixed vi
brations made by the great guns,
1 tho auxiliary guns and tho rapid
lire armament broke tho elec
trical current, and light showed in
the engine-rooms, magazine, sick
bay, etc., only in sparks and flashes.
Had there not been a supply of can
dles at hand tho ship could hardly
have been worked. As it was their
maneuvers were much interfered
with. JJfsidcH destroying tho use
fulness of the lamps the vibrations
broke telegraphic connections be
tweeu the pilot house and conning
tower and tho engine-room, also ren
dering the search lights useless,
Had the battle occurred at night
i these lights would have been of no
avail in revealing the presence of
"Unless some gdius like your
Edison can make a dynamo which
will with stand the vibrations i-au-ed
by the discharge of shotted guns of
ditlWetit sizes timl power, the navies
of the world will have to take the
1 buck track in the matterof electrical
equipment. Japan will move m that
way at once. Hereafter tho interior
lighting of her ships will be done
i with caudles, ami the old system of
communication between the captain
ami his engineers will be renewed.
What is to bo done about tho search
lights I cannot say.
"Tho discovery was also mado at
the Yalu light that our war vessels
; have too much interior woodwork.
The cabinet finish, though beautiful
to look at, is a source of danger
from fire. When a shell exploded
in the sick bay of the Hei-yei, kill
i ing twenty-six men and three officers,
it set fire to the cabinet work ami
caused tho temporary withdrawal of
the ship from action. Japan now
proposes to do away with her inflam
mable inside finish and substitute
thin sheetirou." -Uor. s. '. Chroni

Cawdor to liis wife, "that when tliu

Would Take tho Napoleon's Gall
A Napoleon of finance picked out
a promising town iu Iowa and de
cided to "build it up," sajH tho
Bankers' and Investors' Journal. Ho
moved to tho town, organized a num
ber of stock companies, slarted a
bank, deposited all tho money of tho
companies iu his own bank and thou

principal BiilForors wont to learn
whether anything could bo saved
from tho wreck. Thoy found him iu
a magnificent apartment. "I regret
very much, gentlemen." said he, "but
I have practically nothing lolt. My
wife owns this house ami some busi
ness property, but I have nothing.
Believe mo if I could do such a
thing, 1 would give you my body
and lot it bo divided up among you,
for there is nothing else 1 can do."
"What's that proposition?" asked a
rather deaf old gentleman who was
standing at the back of tho mourn
ful company. "Ho says," explained
ouo of tho suflorors, "that we cau
take his body ami divide it up among
us." "Well, in that case," said tho
deaf old gentleman, "I speak for his
