MEANINGS OF CALIBER.
Either the Diameter of a Gun or It.
Length Divided by Diameter.
There is surely no word in the no
menclature of guns, big and little,
which has caused and is causing so
much confusion in the lay mind as the
The confusion arises chiefly from the
use of the term-in an adjectival sense
to indicate length, as when we say a
50 caliber six inch gun.
The word caliber as applied to artil
lery signifies essentially and at all
times the diameter of the bore of a
gun. A gun, then, of six inch caliber
is a gun whose bore is just six inches.
For convenience and because the
power of a gun when once its bore has
been decided upon depends so greatly
upon its length, artillerists are In the
habit of defining the length of the gun
In terms of the caliber.
The six inch rapid fire gun, as mount
ed on the ships of the navy, is a trifle
under twenty-flive feet in length and
is therefore known as a 50 caliber gun.
In the case of suiall arms the caliber
is expressed in hundredths of an inch,
as when we say a 22 caliber or 32 cali
ber pistol. meaning that the bore is
.22 or .32 of an inch in diameter.-Sci

There Are Two Classes, the Genuine
and the Pretenders.
It has sometimes been said that Lsh
ermen cannot be manufactured. This
I is true to the extent that nothing can
supply the lack of certain inherent,
constitutional and inborn qualities or
traits which are absolutely necessary
to a fisherman's makeup. Of course
there are many who call themselves
fishermen and who insist upon their
membership in the fraternity who have
not in their veins a, drop of legitimate
fisherman blood. Their self asserted
relationship is nevertheless sometimes
seized upon by ma3icious or ignorant
critics as permitting the assumption
that the weaknesses and sins of these
pretenders are the weaknesses and
sins of genuine fishermen. But in
truth these preteaders are only inter
lopers who have learned a little tish
language, who love to fish only "when
they bite," who whine at bad luck,
who betray incredulity when they hear
a rousing fish story and who do or
leave undone many other things fatal
to good and regular standing. Thiey
are like certain whites called squaw
men who hang about Indian reserva
tions and gain certain advantages in
the tribes by marrying full blooded In
dian women. Surely no just person
would for a moment suppose that gen
uine Indians could be treated fairly by
measuring them according to a squaw
man standard. Neither can genuine
fishermen be fairly treated by judg
ing them according to the standards
presented by squaw fishermen.-From

The One Most Beloved by the People
Among the many Buddhist-Shinto
saints, whose quaint effigies set up in
every conceivable nook and corner of
Japan make it a "country of graven
images," one of the most impressive
and interesting is the pathetic person
called Binzuru. He was once upon a
'time a member of that strange com
pany of Buddhist disciples known as
the "Sixteen Rakkan." But one day
he fell from grace by remarking upon
the attractions of a woman, and he
was expelled from the society of
chaste brethren. The great Buddha
gave him, in return for all that his
worldliness had cost him, power to
heal human ills and to grant the
prayers of childless women who long
ed for motherhood. But he was put
outside the temples. H~e must hence
forth sit without, in the midst of the
passing throng, and submit himself
to personal contact with all that was
unclean and healthless. The simple
herted people love him, I think,
above all saints. His wooden images
In the temple porches are the strangest
objects in all Japan. They give him
soft cushions to sit upon, and he is
always clothed in quaint little cotton
stuff' collars and mufflers in all sorts of
soiled looking colors, and on his head
his devotees usually keep a curious
little cotton cap.-Eleanor Franklin in
