The experiment by Captain Lewd
of the United SUtas army, and the
mora recent tesU of the British army
at Fa rn borough a how tbat machine
gun can be fired from flying aero
plane with a greater degree of accu
racy than has yet been attained at
shooting along the ground. A target
waa (truck at almoK the rate of nine
times out of ten, which mean that
.rjr m. ammunition waa waatea. i
The accuracy of plunging Are I nota- !
ble lo military annals. At Sedan the
encompassing cannon of the Germans
planted on elevations compelled Louis
Napoleon's capitulation under threat
of annihilation. In the Russian-Japanese
war Port Arthur was doomed when
the Japanese poured Into the city their
galling fire from the great heights
above. The fact that the Japanese
worked long to gain those elevations
again proved the recognized value of
plunging Are. The war in Tripoli has
shown that great damage can be done
by mere bombs dropped from directly
overhead. This being demonstrated,
the military authorities of Europe are
now using machine guns. These can
be aimed and fired more accurately
than anything that Is dropped. There
is less waste of ammunition and more
ammunition can be carried. The ex
periments combine to make a powerful
argument for peace.
The conclusion Is reached by a Lon
don Journal from observation of the
Increasing cumber of American women
who go to Europe alone that "Ameri
can husbands are a drag on thoir wom
en folk when traveling abroad.'' Why
only "when traveling abioad?" Many
American husband will be disposed to
Indorse the statement without thequal
'fying clause. These are the husbands
who find themselves genera!!- In the
way except when bills are to be paid,
says the New York World. They are
those who preler the slippered ease
Of their homes to the allurements of
the cabaret fIiow. who refuse to learn
the turkey trot, though everybody in
their "set" is doing It; who play auc
tion bridge under compulsion, and oth
erwise impede domestic happiness.
Husbands exist as a necessary encum
brance in the present social scheme,
but doubtless they will have to be
borne with until some automatic meth
od is devised for making the money to
pay for automobiles and clothes and
tuition fees, as well as the rent.
Experiments have recently been
carried out In Germany with the ob
ject of discovering methods and
means for rendering walls and ceil
ings capable of effective resistance to
sound transmission. One of the more
recently devised methods Involves
the use under the celling, or parallel
to the wall, as the case may be, of a
network cf vire stretched tightly by
means of pulleys 6ecured into ad.'a
rrent walls and not touching at any
point the surface to be protected
against sound. Upon the wire net
work Is plastered a composition
formed of strong glue, plaster of parls
and granulated cork, so as to make n
flat slab, between which and the wall
or celling Is a cushion of confined air.
The method described Is said to be
good In two respects; first, the ab
sence of contact between the protec
tive and protected surfaces, and, sec
ondly, the colloid nature of the com
position recommended for the plaster.

Washington. Mnrders of two Amer
icans in Mexico were reported to tha
State department. George Reterman,
an American blacksmith, who former
ly lived at Wichita, Kan., is reported
to have been murdered at Curihur
lachlc on the night of September 16.
No particulars are known.
The other murder reported Is that of
Jacob Meyer, whose headless body
was found by some of his neighbors
at San Pedro Maren. The body, with
the- head cut off, was found in the
house Meyer occupied, and It was cvi
deut, the reportB state, he hud been
dead many days.
Authorities Promise Aid.
When the murder was committed,
by whom, or under what circumstan
ces, is not known, but It is presumed
members of the many marauding
rebel bands are responsible. The local
Mexican authorities in Mexico have
promised to make a thorough investi
gation. While no official statement has ever
been given out regarding the number
of Americans killed in Mexico during
the present revolution, It is under
stood that it is large. The conduct of
the Mexican government in its capac

essary for Missouri, through the board

"TTe scientist who have been con
ducting the investigation are now
thoroughly convinced the loss of
horse stock in tho territory affected
Is not caused by contagious disease,
but grows out of dangerous conditions
in the food or water supply."
