THE HOlAND IS A SUCCESS
TRIAL OF SUBMARINE TORPEDO
OAT MADE YESTERDAY
Inventor Congratulated By Naval
OfcasPerors All That Ws
Claimed For It
New York Nov GThe Eubmarine
torpedo boat Holland was successfully
tested In Peconlc bay L r today At
the close of the test the members ot
the board of inspection Rear Admiral
Rodgers Commaqers William H Em
ory and Charles H Rolcker and Naval
Constructor Washington F Capps
shook hands with John P Holland the
Inventor and congratulated him on his
success He had waite twentyfve
years for victory and tears streamed
down his cheeks when the naval of
ccrs greeted him
The Holland ran out to the course and
Captain Lowe and Commander Emo
descended Into the light round turret
on the top of the boat The cap was
closed and the Holland prepared to
mae its first trip along the measured
mile The beginning of the course was
marked by two red and hIe pole set
300 feet apart The termination of the
mile was marked In the same manner
Beyond the termination pole was set a
pole to be use as a target Between
the two ends of the mile were poles so
that the board could note the adherence
to the course or any devIation from It
The course was by compass due north
and south the starting point beIng the
south end
When all was red the Holland sank
to a depth of ten feet while going at
full speed which was attained almOst
immediately This left the tips of the
fag pOle on her deck expose But
for these It would have ben nposlble
to have traced the boat
as while sub
merged she made no disturbance upon
the surface She traveled at thc rate of
eight knots an hour making the dis
tance from start to turning point In
nine and onehal minutes
Arriving at the end of the mile silo I
shot to the surface her turret comhi
Into vIew Ten seconds late she had
again dIsappeared yIhln thc ten see
onds she corrected hEr course having
deviated only seventy feet from the
true course and fred a regulation I
whitehead torpedo weighing 840
pounds which went splnnlnf off toward I
the target 800 ardS away
Meanwhile as the deadly missile
whirled through on Its course the Hol
land swung about and started back
She turned in a radius of svcntYfe I
feet orabout one and oneha1t times
her own length She w flying back
to the starting pint before the missile
had run its course The return trIp was
made In about the same time as the
outward run and was equally succesS i

Command Emery and CaptaIn Lowe I I
then left the Holland and Commander
Cappa and Lieutenant Henderon en
tered the boat and another trIp war 1
undertaken The results were the same
except that Instead of rising to the
surface fO discharge the missile the I i
Holland fred It while sUbmerged Al j
most before the torpedo reached then
surface the Holland had turned par
tially about and by the time the missile
was well on its journey the Holland
el so tlgrney
was on its way back
I
The missile was well thrown and
came so near the fag pole used as a I
target that it was evident that t0 yes I
sd could hattpeeanei If In th nnth nr I I
the torpedo The boat shot to the stir
face between the starting fags At no
time was there any error of more than
a few feet in calculation as k distance
traveled
I The ral C and course is taken by the
steersman as the beat Inks While
submerged he cannot see anything ana
has to calculate as he flies along just
how far the boat travels each second
so as to know when to rise at the end
of the given distance While doing this
he must steer the compass course taken
at the moment of diving
The Holland the ran a quarter of a
mie on the surface as a fpe d test

rially on where most of the Jones vote

I Is certain either George K Nash

more from the Democrats than from the I

Jones will draw much more heavily
from the Republicans than from the
Democrats eel ten McLean will be elect I

The Democratic managers have made
much capital ot the fact that Jones has
ben a Republican up to this campaign
and that he was himself connected with
a trust and that he would not pledge j
himself to vote for Bryan In 1900
As Ohio Is normally a Republc m I
state Jones could draw more heavily 1
from the Republicans and still not afI

A head justly proportioned to the rest
of the body shows steadiness and force
of character too barge it generally in
dicates grossness and stupidity too
small feebleness and inaptitude of
minti if net of constitution The phy
siognomy of a forehead is seen in the
form of the frontal bone its height and
proportion reruiarit or irregularity
this marks the disposition and nieas
tire of our faculties our fashion of
thinking and feeling Pathognomy
should be studied in the covering skin
its color wrinkles tension or relaxa
tion this gives a clew to the passions
the actual state of the spirit within the
use it has made of its natural gifts
Foreheads seen in profile are divided
into three classes projecting above
flat ore the eyebrows retreating from
behind developed bowrs and perpendie
uiar Broadly speaking those with
prominent eye bones act promptly on
the judgment perhaps passion of the
moment Yet they err but rarely for
their gifts of intuition and rapid detlue
tion seldom fail to guide them rightly
High foreheads lacking some part of
this quick spirit pause consider and
weigh the matter before taking action
Less passionate less imaginative less
resourceful they cannot afford to make
mistakes Short foreheads prominent
brows belong to the man of action
High welldeveloped temples to the
man of thought A perpendicular flat
forehead with wrinkleless skin
stretched tightly across it may be
briefly dismissed as the forehead of the
fool Eye bones which project so
sharply as to cause the hair of the
brows to bristle outward show immense
acuteness and genius of intrigue Li
Hung Chang the great Chinese minis
tee and Prince Bismarck are good ex
atnpbes of this class A forehead square
on the temples and retreating into the
flair on ottiier side IS a retentive mem
ol and excellent judgment LOrd
Kitchener of Khartoum has the typical
forehead of a header of men Short
compressed with prominent eye bones
and thick straight brows square and
receding on the temples A man with
this forehead could not fail to judge
character or circumstance with quick
I ness and accuracy to store such oh
I sersations in a tenacious memory and
to act upon his conclusions with
promptness and decision
Eyes mirrors of the soul may per

light and dark it has been said that the

1 are really of so deep an orange that
they appear black cotitrasted with the

Sometimes they scent dull and slug

the passIons strong Clear blue eyes
belong to temperate regions Other in
tellectuai indications being eqttal what
they may back in power and passion
they svibi make up in subtlety and ver
satihity Hazel eyes show steadIness

green catlike orbs though frequently
fascinating are dangerous for they are
a sign Cf ccquetry and deceit The eyes
of genius are said to be of varying
tints like the sea sometimes blue
tinged with green or orange in eec
tam lights or when affected by emotion
deep and almost darlc These are but
few of the Infinite varieties in tint It
should never be forgotten that eyes art
more capable of misleading than any
ether feature Form and color may in
dicate much the glance tsteady or of I
perhaps eveir more Wildly expanded
eyeds see much without reflecting
greatly beyond the present moment
Eyelids half closing over the eyes de
note less facility of impression but
clearer insight more definite Ideas
greater readiness in action they notice
less but think and feel intensely Deep
set eyes with wrinkles at the outer
corners show penetration and a sense
of humor Eyes set near together es
peciahly when there are wrinkles across
the nose are a sign of cunning and
meanns in small things money mat

character will be generous If too
wide careless and extravagant The
proper distance between the eyes is the
length of one eye
