Spokane interstate Fair.
We have received a copy of the 1911
premium list issued by the Spokane In

ally generous list of cash prizes, amount
ing in all to about $36,000. This money
is really to be given away as prizes on
live stock, agricnltural products and
other exhibits and, doubtless, much of it
could be won by exhibitors in this local
ity if they would take the trouble to
send exhibits. The Spokane fair man
agement do all they can to induce ex
hibitors to come; the railroads and ex
press companies make special "reduced
rates on exhibits. We notice that the
apple prizes alone amount to $1458, an
increase of $800 over the amount offered
in 1910. Copies of the premium list

Bending of Great Guns.
Among the problems with which ar
my and navy engineers have to deal
nowadays is that of the drooping of
the muzzles of excessively long guns
under the stress of their own weight.
Experiments have shown that wire
wound guns of twelve inch caliber and
fifty feet length droop at the muzzle
about four and a half minutes of arc,
while built up solid guns of the same
size droop about two and a half mm
utes. Differences of temperature In
the body of the gun also cause bend
ings, which may either increase the
droop at the muzzle or counteract it.
•crording as it is the upper or under
part of the gun that has the higher
temperature. In consequence of these
distortions projectiles on leaving a gun
have a wabbly motion, continuing up
to 500 yards, and probably more.
