(WAR PAINT OF BATTLESHIPS, j
Effoit to Approximate Invisibility in I
The colors of warships, like those
of soldiers' uniforms, arc now select
od with a view to invisibility in actual
[ service rather than for beauty or brilj
linncy. Only the United States adI
heres to a brilliant "dress uniform"
for its whips, and even this is quioki
ly exchanged for the somber service
color in war time. A writer in Cosmos
describes the present usage of the
principal nations in this regard. He
admits Mint the sight- presented by a
French squadron js truly agreeable
to the eye. A-rmorclads and cruisers
both have their hulls painted a bril- -j
liant black on which the white line of
flotations stand's out; the superstructures,
of a pale gray, do not appear

copper lights up the whole, and all
seems happily contrived (<? please the |

erations should not have weight in
such cases and the colors of the French ' ^
warships have the serious fault that j '
they are visilble at a great distance I
and thai tlreir silhouette stands out

white paint through the whole far
Eastern war, while (heir adversaries
sensibly assumed the jyray at the
opening of host/ilities); tillo ^Italian
vessels are a little darker: Germany
has chosen a slightly bluish tint, with
which she clothes her ships down to a

United States keeps the white in

"The differences, of slight importance,
that are found between these
different colors conve doubtless from
the different conditions under whicii
I hey have been tried. On the blue
waters of the Mediterranean the
most favorable tint is not the same
as in the mists of the north. Thus,
formerly, a little before the visit to ,
fro 11stadt tthe armored division of
Admiral Gervais was painted the
'soiled-linen' color?a mixture of
black, yellow and white"?'which wo

Yacht, expresses the wish flint we
once led others and from which wo
hn-ve unfortunately strayed, and that
our fighting ships may give up their
varied colors to take on a coat less
brilliant and more safe.
"For torpedo boats and destroyers
the conditions are no longer dhe 1
sanve. These small craft are intended
to operate b.v night, and the most
neutral gray is visible at a very
great distance in darkness; in the
beam of a search-light it produces
the effect of a brilliant white. Opinions
differ about the proper shade to
be selected. England, Germany,
Italy and Japan paint these vessels a
d<ead black, while I lie United States j
and Russia prefer a very ugly bottle
green, which, if would appear, is (
still less easily seen than block, especially
