Holland's submaiinc torpedo boat was suc
cessfully launched at Lewis Nixon's Cres

a very quiet affair. Those picsent were
Mi. and Mrs. Lewis Nixon, Lieut, Com
mander Kimball, Naval Constructor Hoover,
Naval Constructor Uoot, Mis. Isaac Law
rence, Capt, and Mrs Jackques and Mr.
Ellh'i B. Frost- Theie was some sup
pressed excitement among the spectators
Just bcfoie the launch, as there was some
doubt as to Just what the craft would
do when she struck the watei.
15 y 2:35 o'clock all was ready. The top
of the turiet was screwed tightly down,
and the word was given aud i he little ves

and her .tem tut beneath thesurface. An-othe-
instant and the water wai sweeping
over the whale-like back, sizing upward
like a fountain, when it encountered
the littic turret amldshiship. The lvow
stood high out or the water; then it sank
down The steruappeated again above the
surface, and the vessel slipped easily away
in the bay
Tl.e Holland was then taken in tow by a
tugboat She resembles a huge cigar. Her
cros section is perfectly cireulai She li
persorf almost ti a iiointaft, and her bow
is round Her length is flftj-five feet, and
her diameter eleven feet On the back,
properly speaking, she has no deck; there
is a light superstructure, which extends
lrom the bow well toward the stern. This
gives her an entrance into the water and a.
run. and idso protects sonic of her ma
chinery. The only entrance to the boat is through
the top of the turret, which arises about
the middle. The top closes down so tightly
as to prevent the ingress or water In the
sides are long slits of glass, through w hich

The motive power, when she is running
on he surface, is to be denved from a

She has two i udders. One of these is a

keep her ruunligat a given depth under the

lasted as to have a reserve buoyancy - that
is, a onnstnnt tendency to rise to the sur
face equal to 1 .00(1 pounds Whn she is
running ubmerged this will le overcome
by the Horizontal rudders.
As to armament, there is an 18-inch
torpedo expulsion tube on the axis or the
boat forward, for which three auto mobile
torpedos are earned Above this tube,
inclining shpialv upward from the center,
is an 8-inch aerial tuipctlo gun. which will

In attacking a hostile battleship the
Holland boat will move on the surface,
driven by cither gasoline engines, or her
electric motor, until she Is within the usual
range of the enemy. Then she may sink
herscir, until the turret alone shows above
the surface Being telescopic, this turret
may be pushed up to such a height that the
hull will be covered by a Toot or water.
The submarine boat will move on the
enemy lelow the surface When she is
within sinking distance several methods or
attack will be open to her commander
One or thee will be to get below the battle
ship andsend a torpedo at hei. Another is to
suddenly stick the boat's bow out or the
vatcr and hurl an eighty-pound shell at
the enemv from his bow gun.
HOW TO FIND OUT.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours; a sedi
ment or settling indicates an unhealthy
condition of the kidneys. When urine
stains linen it is a positive evidence of kid
ney trouble. Too frequent desire to
nnnato or pain iu the back, is also con
vincing proof that the kidneys and bladder
are out or order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comrort In the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Hoot, the great kidney remedy, fuirills
every wish In relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of
the urinary passages. It corrects inability
to hold urine and scalding pafnin passing
It, or bad efrects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that un
pleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up mauy times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the cxtranrriinarv
effect of Swanip-ltootis soon realized. It
stands the highest for its wonderful cures
of tho most distressing cases. I f you need
