Wireless reports from Alapdaloua Bay
J'lcll of rapid progress being made by
jt tho sixteen baitleships or! Admiral
I Evans's conitnand toward the complo
V Lioa of tbeir record target, practice.
A 11 of the firing so far lias been at a
range -of 1600 yards, or just short of
T one mile. The firing also has beon con
J fined 1o stationary targets, and it Is
'. now believed thnt, there Trill be a
; change, either of range or charactor
' r of targots, during the remainder of tho
jf practice. At first it was thought that
'? tho. Magdalena Bay work of tho fleet
J would . include a variety of ranges ex
f tending even up to 9000 yards, tho
maximum for bantle practice, with tho
primary twelve and thirtceu-iuch tur
,et guns, and moving targots attached
to tho end of n long tow lino, but
jjrlatQ. advices say the gunnery prac
, . lice will be striefly limited, to record
7 work at 1600 yards and at anchored
' targets, 12 by 21 feet in size,
t " ' Rush to Finish Work.
r 'The practice has been under way for
gmoro than ten days, and tho firing has
$ been constant, Sundays not being ex
2'cludcd in the rush to finish as early as
.possible. Another ten days, it is be
VHeved, will see the conclusion of tho
$ range work, and then will follow! a
period of coaling and cleaning up for
, thofetes that await the ships along the
; hospitable shores of California.
. -"According to preseut plans, as an
fnounced by Admiral Evans, the fleet
Swill leave IMagdalena Ba- at daylight
C on the morning of April" 12, just one
month to a day from the time of or
' rival within this most favored of Pa-
fccifib naval bases. Tho steaming speed
J will be raised to eleven knots on
' the run to San Diego to bring the fleet
S to auehor off Corouado Bench at 2:30
I p. m. April 14. The run from Magda
jlena Bay io San Diego is about. 620
- miles, and has been made in forty
sjjvoji hours by many of the cruisers.

lover fifty-six hours for the trip, how

records made by tho different ships
Swill' come from Magdaleua Bay. Ad
Jmiral Evans having decided lb send
all of this class of information in eon
tflHential mail communications to the
2'avy department at "Washington.
, Cost of Ammunition.
I Some idea of the amount of work
7 being done at Alagdalena Bay can be
"gleaned from the official statement of
'ammunition expended by the cruiser
j'Teuncfsee, recently returned from the
g practice grounds. At preliminary prac
'VtiCjC. the. Tennessee used 13,743 pounds
oT0Tvdcr and 30.2-12 pounds of shell,
; .the cost being $15,900.20. At record
practice the Tennessee used 10.092
pounds of powder and 51.956 pounds
' of shell, at a -cost of $25,742.90, The
Tennessee's largest guns are ten-inch
caliber.,: as 'against' the twelve and
' thirteeir-ihch riioces of the battleships.
The'-sliips of the Connecticut type, .of
TfHichV there are five, in the fleel, will
UGgj.Up at least one-half more ammuni
r.i'privthau the Tennessee aud the older
) hfjij, Kentucky and Illinois
tiypc'.; will use a third more. The
'fac.fcthat the latter ships are ten years

' HEALTH F ANIMALS BEST ;
BECAUSE OF GOOD DIGESTION
An interesting interview was -recently
obtained with L. T." Cooper, the
youug man whose theory and medicines
have created such a sensation during
tho past' year.
Mr. Cooper, in speaking of the re
mnrlcablc success of his medicine, had
this to say ou tho subject: "My medi
cine regulates the stomach. That is
why it, is successful, Tho human stom
'ch today has become degenerate, and
is T.ho cause for most ill health. In
tho horse, tho dog, and the wild ani
mals generally, yon sec no uervo ex
haustion, no " chronic debility. They
arc not. shut up day after "day with
practically no oxorcisc, and thoy aro
not nblo to stuff themselves with food
wheu their bodies have not had enough
work to iustify it. The human race
has been doing this for .years, and look
at the result half the people are com
plaining of poor health, not real illness
just a hnlf-stck, tired, droopy feel
ing. They don't really know what is'
the matter with them.
"I know that all tho trouble is
caused by weak, overworked stoma chs.
I have proved this with my medicine to
many thoitsauds of people in most of'
the loading cities of this country- I
expect to do tho same thing in Europe
next 3'car. This is the real reason for
tho demand for my preparation."
Among those who nave recently boon
converted to Cooper's theory is Mr.
Monroe Brown or S BTancock Street,
Winchester, Mass. Mr. Brown has this
the Alabnma and Illinois, must give
way to the Wisconsin and the Nebras
ka'whcn the fleet leaves San Francisco
July G for its tour of the world.
Albany Holds Record.
The standard of accuracy at record
target practice has been set this year
by tho cruiser Albany, which made a
total score of 12S hits out of 130 shots,
at a rate of fire never before attained
in tho navy- The- Albany, however has
no turret guns of large' calibre to bring
down the average for rapidity, and no
battleship can hope to neebmphsh all
that this little cruiser, which flies the
championship pennant of red from her
peak, did at tho targets.
The stories of- tho practice work at
Magdalena Bav are filled with iutore3t.
The little targets aro placed at the apex j
of a carofullv measured triangle, across
the base of which the ship at practice
steams at tho rate of ten knots an hour.
As the ship approaches the range the
gun-poinlcrs and loading crews aro
stripped to their wuists. Guns are kept
trained on tho target some time before
tho sigual to begin firing is sounded
through tho ship, and scarcely have the j
first notes of the well known bugle call
"gone" when the crack of tho .guns is
heard. Strangely enough, it is declared
that to the novice the sharp, quick re
port of the small rifles is more trying
ou the nerves than the deep-throated
! roar of tho 12-inch guns, whose great
muzzles protrude with an unmistakablo
menncc from the slanting elliptical tur
rets of the modem vessels.
Below decks the magazino crcw6. far
down in the handling rooms, empty
charges of smokeless powder from tho
coppor tanks in which they arc stored
and send they flying up tho whirring
ammunition "hoists. As each tank is
opened the smell of nitre is almost over
powering, despite the fact that the pow
der still is nrotectod by an air-tight bag
of heavy silk. The firing lnsts but five
minutes". Then the ship turns and
i steams back in the opposite direction,
giving lirst tho port and then tho star- j
board gun crews their turns at the tar- i
Officers and mm e&pccially trained !
for the work follow the aro of the
guns. Some have eyes keen' enough to
pick up the pencil-like three and five
inch shells soon after they leave the
muzzles of the guns and follow them
to a hit or miss at the targets. When
one' of these lynx-eyed experts once was
asked bv a -landsman ifvhc could spo
a 12-inch shell going through tho air,
"See "it? Why, it looJ5 as big as a
I trqllcy car."
INVITATION OF CHINA -.
, WILL BE ACCEPTED-
WASHINGTON. March 2. It was Co
dded at the Cabinet meeting today to
accept tho Invitation of China to have
the Atlantic battleship licet visit a port
of thnt country on ila return voyage from
the Pacific coast. It also was decided
that no further inylta-tlons for the fleet
would he accepted. The Itinerary around
the world will be arranged In accordance
with this decision. Invitations of foreign
countries so far accepted, after tho fleet
leaves Han Francisco, Include Australia.
Japan and China. All other stops will be
strictly for coaling purposes.

j "There's a Reason" for
to say of his experience with the ,ncw
medicine: "For over aovon yoarB I
suffered with catarrh of the stomach,
and for the past year I was lame "with
rheumatism. I attributed this to my
stomach trouble, as 1113- circulation was
very poor. "What food I ato would turn

deal of flesh, and was nervous and dc- I
pressed. This went on for over seven
years, although I spent hundreds of dol- ;
inrs trying, to got relief.
""When Cooper was in Boston I
honrd a good deal about his ideas on

RECIPROCAL DEMURRAGE j
MEASURE IS ATTACKED j
ST. PAUL. March 21. W- K. Begg. j
general solicitor of the Great Northern
railway, in a letter today to Attorney
General Young, attacks the reciprocal de
murrage law, passed by the last Minne
sota. Legislature, and State officials Infer !
from his letter that the railroad company
iwlll contest the law on constitutional
The reciprocal demurrage law provides
for the Imposition of a penalty upon the
railroads for their failure to furulnh cars
within certain proscribed periods, as well
upon the shippers, for their fiy'lure lo
load or unload cars within the tlni.c prc-
t In hlf letter Mr. Beggs says that Con
1 gress, haing fixed the duty of currieis
with reference to furnishing car for
1 interstate shipments, the State cannot,
ivthoroforc. Interfere with that duty cither
by making It more definite and cortaln or
by imposing penalties. ,
The Minnesota law. he gays, by Its
terms applies to all transportation, Stale
. and interstate, and Its void as lo inlor
! stale shipments ITo argues, further.
1 that if tho State Supreme Court should
I conbtryp the law hs applicable only lo
! Interstate shipments, then it directly
. burdens interstate commerce because of
the penalties imposed.
I GREAT BRITAIN HAS NOT
! INVITED VISIT OP FLEET
I LONDON. March 21. Great Britain has
not Invited the American battleship fleot
to visit. ISnglund as It returns home, or
to make any offlcinl calln at British ports
on Its way, as the British admiralty un
dnrstnndH that the AiiitIi'uii Government
does not desire that the voyage he fur
ther delayed. This would be the cane if
the ships came lo England. It Is undcr
ntood nlso that tho United States hat; ex
pressed the wish that there should ho
no demonstration in honor of the fleet at
the Brltl3h porte in the Mediterranean.
It Is possible, however, that the BritlHh
Atlantic fleot will be at Gibraltar wh.ui
the American squadron passes through
the strait, in which event the usual cour
tesies will be extended.
