NEW FLEET TO BE

New York. How many people In this
Inml realize that tlio days of tlic At
liullc Meet nro numbered? The At
lintic fleet that great organization
(Which Inspired Kipling to help lin
inortallzu Hob Evans, which brought
applause from an admiring world when
It Balled out of Hamilton Roads and
steamed triumphantly back again at
the end of tlio flrst great nnvnl clr
ctirnnavlgatlon of Uie globe; which
thrilled millions of Americans when
anajestlcnlly It passed In review before
the president of the United States on
Its way to ecu last year; thd licet of
.."which every American Is and of right
ought to bo proud. Yet the day of its
passing Is not far off.
I!ut Uie going Is also tlio coming, for
simultaneously with tlio end of tho
"world famed Atlantic licet there will
come Into cxlstonco n still greater fleet,
to be known as tho United States Meet;
a fleet that will pass at tho will of tho
naval chiefs from ocean to ocean and
which will be as the Atlantic fleet of
today Is not equally important In tho
defensive scheme of both tho Atlantic
and Pacific seaboards.
Tho Atlantic fleet of today is a
splendidly olllecred nnd manned or
xanlzntion of twenty-ono super-Dreadnoughts.
Dreadnoughts and flrst line
liattleshlps. As a lighting unit It Is
certainly tho equal and, in the opinion
of thousands who aro In a position to
3udgc. the superior, ship to ship, of any
fleet Unit sails any sea under any flag.
It Is a fleet whoso vessels total In dis
placement raoro than UOO.OOO tons, ex
clusive of auxiliaries. It numbers
among its units tho great super-Dreadnought
Arkansas, which less than a
fortnight ago rnado civilization take
notice when it was olllclally announced
that her gunners hr.d smashed every
existing record made with guns of tho
'twelve Inch type.
The day when tho Atlantic fleet
pusses gloriously into history and the
United States fleet takes its placo in
tlio lineup of the world's great naval
organizations will be tho day when tho
Old Oregon, tho famous ship of 1808
that sailed around South America nnd
Joined Sampson in the nick of time to
win im undying name at Santiago, will
Scad tlio American fleet from tho At
lantic to the Pnclllc via the Panama
canal. Behind the Oregon, which for
a day only will he u flagship, will trail
lu a majestic line tho licet that Is dy
ing and the licet that Is being born.
The fleet will include twelve Dread
noughts nnd super-Dreadnoughts and
ns many more battleships of the flrst
Hue. The displacement of the fleet will
approximate half a million tons.
The fleet's thousand guns of all types
4f fired simultaneously would bum up

J0O. the projectiles would weigh ap
proximately '.Ml, ()()() pounds, and tho
total firing cost would be slightly lu

magnitude of the United States fleet

How a "Heart Throb Specialist" Got
Her First Job.
In the Woman's Homo Companion
appears n confession of a "heart throb
specialist" a newspaper womnn who
after many failures made a succcbs lu
New York! Following Is her own story
of her first success:
"1 had dropped into a criminal court
room principally to c6capo the heat of
the htieet. A joung girl was being
tried ror attempted suicide. Perhaps
bcciiiihc my swi. failure looked so dark
I could read teal drama between the
faltering lines or her testimony.
"Hen was an old story to the report
ers. 1 knew they would turn in brief
Home, bare facts. I talked about tho
girl with the probation officer nsslgued
to the case, with the girl, with her em
ployers, and 1 secured photographs, in
cluding one of the corner where she
tried to end It nil, a cubbyhole much
like my own. Then I wrote as if her
storj were mine.
"With tho power born of desperation
1 toned my way Into the presence of
a Sunday editor who had spoken a few
kind words to mo. I begged him to
lead my story while the girl's case wns
still In the public eye.
"For a wonder ho did raid It wlijlo
I sat beside him. When he finished he
touched several buttons, nnd men fair
ly tumbled Into the room.
"After giving thetn orders ho seemed
to ri'i-alj my existence. Ho turned nnd
staled ut me over his glasses.
" 'Let's see. You've been in here be
fore, hnven't you?'
" 'Yes. I brought you n letter from
Mr Blank of the News.'
" 'Humph! A story llko that is worth

"His eyes twinkled.
" 'Oh. I've bought it nil right. I for
got to mention wo pay $50 for a story
like that with tho pictures. 1 suppose
that is nil right?
"I closed my eyes. 1 saw a clean hall
room, with a real window ledge over
which 1 could look out upon a quiet
city garden. I saw n telegraph opera
tor clicking off n message to an anx
ious mother. And I tasted beefsteak
thick. Juicy, rare!
"When I opened my eyes onco more
the Sunday editor was nt the door. He
flung his order over bis shoulder:
" 'Wait till I como back.'

beside me again, and I could hardly be

Kenyon Won The Second
tan Of The Season
By Defeating Wittenberg On
, Saturday Afternoon
Tho rod and gold of Columbus,
North High school, triumphed ovor the
Mt. Vernon orango nnd black at Riv
erside park Saturday afternoon with
a decisive 21 to G score in its favor.
Inferior weight nnd inability to han
dle the slippery, soggy ball cost Mt.
Vernon tho game which, barring the
many fumbles, would have been very
close. On receiving tho kick-off and
on handling punts was where the loc
als fell down miserably. While In ac
tual scrimmage, there was very little
to choose between tho two teams, eith
er on offense or defense. North had
tho edge, however, owing to their
Tho defensive work of the Columbus
left lino and the ability of Halfbacks
Grove and Jlhoades to skirt the ends
were the features afforded by the vis
itors. Ewalt of Mt. Vernon, while
weak on handling punts, shone both
on offense and defense. Several tlmee
ho threw tho North backs tor big loss
es and on Boveral occasions, by shifty
running, advanced the ball for long
gains. Ho scored tho only Mt. Vernon
touchdown. Walter Snpp at halfback
and Van Voorhls at fullback acquitted
themselves excellently on offense but
Sapp made more and longer gains
than his liackfiold mate. Contrary to
the rule, Captain Porter had his hands
well full at center. Splller was the
more formidable opponent that ho has
yet encountered in a high school game
and, with the exception of only a fow
occasions, held the stalwart center
Mt. Vernon received tho kick-off.
Right at that point tho ragged work
began when three of the four Mt. Vor
non backs rnado fruitless efforts to got
their hands on the oval. Perhaps it
wns stagefright but when tho visiting
forwards reached Mt. Vernon's 20 yard
line tho ball was lying thcro helpless
ly on tho ground. A North playor fell
on It. Six rapid plays followed and the
lino was, crossed. Captain Hall kick
ed goal. North 7, Mt. Vernon 0.
After tho first few bccoihIb of play,
tho Mt, Vernon team took n brace and
played the lnvadors oven. Tho ball
passed back and forth over tho center
of the field nnd the flrst period ended
with the ball In Mt. Vernon's posses
sion In their own territory.
Mt. Vernon started tho second per
iod badly by losing tho ball on n fum
ble North immediately fumbled and
lost tho ball, M't, Vernon mado two
first downs by plunging the line and
thon W, Snpp wont around Patton, for
30 yards. North held nt this point for
three downB and Shlreman ISBed a
goal from placement
North could not gain in three at
(emptft nnd punted. Starting on their
own 40. yard line, Mt Vernon began a
steady march toward the visitors' goal
and just previous to the call of time
for tho eni of the first half, tho local
backs had made three flrst downs on
three plays. Thoy were ripping
through tho North high defense at
will., Tho period ended with tho ball
in Mt. Vernon's possession on North's
18 yard line.
Mt. Vornon received the kick and
Kwalt returned 20 yards. A forward
pass was called nnd Ewnlt dropped
back to make tlio pass. Ho stood with
tho ball held high In tho air, not be
ing nblo to locate tho prospoctlvo re
ceiver ot tho pass. Ho was caught
holpless for a 10 yard loss. It wns tlio
fourth down nnd North received tho
ball. They werq unable to get past
the Mt. Vornon dofenso nnd' lost qn
downs. Mt Vernon punted. On the
second play Qrovo got away around

down. Hall kicked goab North 14,

Mt. Vernon again received the kick
off nnd immediately lost on downs.
Ndrh could not gain and they lost on
four attempts. A series of rapid rush
es off tackle took the ball to North's
2 yard line. Two attempts to pierce
center were fruitless and then Gwalt
went around Patton and over tho goal
line. Shlreman missed goal. North
14, Mt Vernon, 6.
Tho visiting team scored the last
touchdown in the final period. They
advanced tho ball to the Mt Vernon
live yard line. Two plunges netted
three yards. On tho third play Quar
terback drnlg plunged into tho line and
carried the ball over by Inches. Hall
kicked goal and finished the scoring.
North 21, Mt Vernon 6.
It might he well to explain that the
officials made a bad error just previous
to North's first touchdown. The ball
was inside Mt Vernon's 10 yard line
when tho locals were penalized. Tho
full penalty was imposed and the ball
was taken to tho Mt Vernon 1 yard
line. The rulo governing this states
that If tho ball is within tho ten yard
line of the team penalized, only one
half the distance to tho goal line shall
be given tho team that Is beneflted by

One Hundred Varieties of Marblo.
Although Vermont occupies only a
small space on the map when com
pared with the great area of somo of
tho other states of tho Union, yet Its
mineral resources are very important
This little state lends the world In the
production of marble and granlto, and
the deposits apparently are inexhaust
ible. The greatest center of tho mar
ble industry of tho world Is in tho vi
cinity of Rutland. Vt. particularly at
Proctor and West Rutland, while tho
greatest center of the granite industry
of the world Is in and around Bnrre
and Hardwlck. Vt
Although twenty-six states furnish
marble, Vermont supplies about 70 per
cent of the finer grades snltablo for
monumental work nnd statuary. This
Btato furnishes 41 per cent of all tho
building marblo used in this country,
nnd the demnnd for this kind of atone
Is increasing. There are about n nun
Ired varieties of marblo quarried in
Vermont ranging from the purest
white, suitable for statuary, to jet

If tho seventeenth century English
