The Range Finder Used by the United

Wasted Much Powder.
Tho Range Fiuilor, tho invon
tiou of i Uuited States uavnl oflio
or, is un interesting exhibit nt tho
Trntis Mississippi exposition, nl
though questions as to its opern-
tiou full ou doaf cars, says tlio
Glovolaud Maritime lt.cord. Ono
of the naval officers in charge of
tho oxhibit declares thut it is a
fact that no other navy has any
means of finding tho range that
docs not involve a mathi'iuatical
calculation. This implies a good
deal of tune lost, and in most casos
thoy find it quicker to i;et the
rauge by actual oxperimont. TIih
Spaniards, for instance, had to
Gro sovornlshuta befro they could
ot the rnugoof Uncle Sum's ships,
f tlmir first Bhot foil short, thoy
tried auRin, and th-y were ant to
overall ot, and by that time the
position of the vessels was likely
altered aiM tliey wero sun ai sea.
Moanwhilo tho ofliror in tho con
ning towor of tho American ship
located them almost exactly with
this instrument, and reported the
range by tolepllouo to tho various
gun captains. This auisuined
only a few socouds, aud whilo the
Spaniards woro still trying to got
their range, the shells from the
American guns swept their decks.
"Tho peculiar thiuu about tho in
atruinuut," says tho otlieor, "is that
whilo it is ono of the siraplost
things in the world to anyouo
who knows" is secret, tho most ex
port mechunic or iuvontor might
oxamiuo it as long as he wanted
to and still be unable ti discover
how it works. This U why repre
sentatives of nthor navies havo
been completely b tiled in their
efforts to find it nut. They havo
range findors of thoir own, but
none that gives tho samo iustan
eous and acourato results. Aud
as long as they can bo kopt in tho
dark wo will bo ablo to outshoot
auy nation on earth, oven if thero
was no dilToronco iu tho skill of
tho gunuors " Thero is another
advantage in tho uso of tho in
strument which araouuts to con
siderable in tho courso of half a
dozen naval ongngomonts. It
costs SI 300 to firo a pir of 13
iuoh guns onco. If the Spaniards
go into a fight thoy must firo at
least two shots to soouro the
rango. Frequently those do not
answer, aud thoy go on sUootitiR
SC80 charges into tho tor, whilo
ovory pound of powder that gooa
into a United States uu i is utiliz

gunners to obtain tho . tot posi
tion of tho enomy b f- a gun is
fired saves thousands it dollars iu

to the Coast saying that Jas. B.

At tho ofllco of Castle it Cooke,
