Sentinels that Guard tho Navy.
Tho United States has the longest
const line of any nailon in the world.
It is tho best guarded, not only hy
lighthouses, lightships and buoys,
but by guard ships and life-saving
stations. The protection which these
marks afford is so emelent that very,
very rarely indeed do ships of the
navy or those of the merchant ma
rine go amiss through the failure of
the sentinels of the sea.
Lightships, lighthouses, beacons,
post lights, fog signal stations, and
buoys of every description, not
counting the hundreds of life-saving
stations, are always on the alert for
the vessels of our navy and shipping,
and guide them safely hilo the snug
harbors along the coasts. And lt is
also important to mention that this
great chain of sentinels was built up
by tho American navy.
The new possessions of the United
States have made an Increased de
mand on this branch of the service
and it is indeed a great service to
the people-Alaska, Porto Rico,
Guam, Philippine Islands, Hawaii,
Samoan Islands, and the recently ac
quired Virgin Islands, have all been
cured for along this particular line,
and ships of the navy, the merchant
marine and those Hying thc flags of
all nations, know that their passage
is mado safo into our harbors by
lights and buoys which aro always
on the alert.
Ships of tho American navy are al
ways moving, the scenes are always
shifting, and the roles played by the
boys who man our vessels are full
of thrills, because the eyes of tho
groat audience of the country aro
watching their every action. The
government is ever on the lookout
for his protection, and in return ho
is ever on tho lookout for tho gov
Altogether there are 1,7S2 light
houses. :i,0 i G post lights, 5 2 light
vessels, 508 gas buoys, 10,128 un
lighted aids to navigation, including
whistling buoys, bell buoys, fog sig
nals, day beacons and channel buoys.
These are the sentinels of the sea and
shore which guard and watch over
1 7,0-13 miles of coast line.
One of our greatest admirals re
cently said that if the coast lines of
all the nations were as well protected
by lighthouses and life-saving facili
ties as are those of the United States
the loss of shipping and vessels of
other navies would be reduced al
most to nothing.

Ding Smugglers Have Now Device.
New York, Feb. 9.-An ingenious
drug-smuggling device used along
the waler front to hoodwink customs
inspectors has been revealed to-dny
by Dr. Carlton Simon, special deputy
police, commissioner, whose cru jade
against vendors of narcotics has re
sulted in seizures valued at thous
ands of dollars.
Tho newest contrivance of the
smugglers, which was discovered by
detectives disguised as longshore
men, consists of a small waterproof
! bag, fastened to two small strips
of wood, which keeps lt afloat. The
drugs, Dr. Simon explained, are
placed in the bag before the Inspec
tors board the vossel, and at a con
venient moment are thrown over
board within sight of an accomplice
in a launch, who is usually not far
distant. Ostensibly gathering drift
wood, tho confederate attracts little
attention ns he gnthers up the float
ing refuse, including the hag, and
hoads for tho shore.

to-day denied the recent report that
the chemical warfare sorvice of tho
army, in co-oporatlon with the De

the cotton belt by tho use of poldon
"There is no foundation for tho

fight against tho boll weevil.
Several times since the armistice,
tho theory has boen put forward that
the poison gas developed by the army

In combating the boll weevil, lt li?
safo to say that no one who under

has over consldored the plan as a
feasible one. The release in cotton
fields of volumes of deadly poison

"This bureau bas developed a plan
of boll weovil control which is safe

use of arsenate of lime, which u
