INSIDE A SUBMARINE r
You Are Greeted by a Deafening,
Ear Splitting Racket.
WORSE THAN A BOILER SHOP.
To Make Yourself Heard at All You
Must Shout into the Ear of a Com
panion-The Economy of Space and
the Simplicity of Arrangements.
Clinbing down ten rungs of an
iron ladder into the interior of a sub
marine is like going Into a boiler shop
where there is one continuous, deafen
ing, ear splitting racket like a dozen
trip hammers chattering a tattoo amid
a grind and rumble and thump of ma
chinery as if especially designed to
burst your eardrums.
At first the noise in that narrowly
confined space is painful and bewilder
ing. To make yourself at all heard
you must shout into the ear of a com
panion. So intense is the strain, says
a writer in St. Nicholas, that you mar
vel how day in and day out human
ears can withstand the ordeal.
You End yourself inside what seems
an enormous steel cigar painted a neat
pearl gray, a color which is serviceable
and does not dazzle the eye. Light
comes to you partly through portholes
and in part from incandescent lamps
placed fore and aft in the darker parts
of the hull.
You have expected, of course, to
land in a tangle of whirling machinery
that fills the inside of the boat from
stem to stern, threatening with every
revolution to take an arm or a leg off.
Instead the first thing you see is an
uninterrupted "working space," or
deck, measuring iby 25 or 30 feet.
At the stern, far in the background,
are the machines and- engines. In fact,
this section of the vessel is nothing but
machinery, a r-mbling mass of silvery
steel and glittering brass revolving at
the rate of 500 times a minute, so com
pact that you wonder -how the various
parts can turn without conflicting or
how It is possible for human bands to
squeeze through the maze to oil the
But this economy of space Is as noth
ing to what you wiM see. The floor
you stand on is a cover for the cells of
the storage batteries wherein is pent
up the electricity with which your boat
will propel herself when she runs sub

The four torpedoes, measuring six
teen feet three Inches long; eighteen
inches in diameter and weighing 1,500
pounds each, are lashed end for end' in
pairs at either side, and directly over
these are tool boxes and hinged bunks
for the crew to sleep in.
The very air which Is taken along to
keep life In you in case the boat should
be detained beneath the suiface. longer
than usual Is compressed in a steel cyl
inder 2,000 pounds per square Inch, a
pressure so intense that were the cyl
inder to spring a leak so larger than a
pin hole and were~ the ting stream of
escaping air to strike a human being it
would penetrate him thr-ough and

inch-thick board behind him..
And 'yet everything about the inte

There is no need to dilate on the fasci

To one of them a highly placed admir

a diamond necklace. Knowing that the
lady possessed more than a superficial
knowledge of the- value of stones, be
begged her to select for him what he
required. The price he was prepared
to give was ?1,500.' The lady jumped i
to the conclusion that such a request
could have but one maning-viz, that
she herself was to be the eventual. re
cipient of the gift She thereupon vis

his stock, but at the price she was em
powered to give saw nothing that par
ticularly took her fancy. A fascinating
piece of workmanship, however,-did at
tract her, the price of which was.3,000
guineas. The desire to possess 'it be
came Irresistible. She arranged with
the jeweler to send the necklace to the
purchaser and invoice it to him at the
agreed upon price, while she gave her
own check~for the balance. Then she
went home and awaited the arrival of

was no appearance of the necklace. A
