Ericsson is tho result of careful r.tndy
by the naval department, and has Iwcn
built after the design Orawn by men
rcrsed in that branch of naval con
struction. So it will be seen that
there never has anything leen com
pleted in this conntry from which
comparison may be drawn, nnd it is
sufiieient to demonstrate tho Erics
son's excellence by saying tfcat Eng

they have produced will ever" equal
this unique craft.
This loat is l.V) feet in length and
15 feet beam in the widest section.
She will have a displacement of 120
tons, end. while like all of her class,
will sit low in the water. Vet, when
ready for sea, she will need about 4l
feet of water to safely navigate. In
her after sections she resembles the
whaleback, with graceful lines drawn
in to the eigar-shoped termination, but
forward she holds her depth well, giv
ing her smooth and unbroken lines to
the stem, and so sharply drawn that
the least possible resistance is pro
vided. ?fo greater care could possibly have
been taken than has been lavished
upon this vessel, every piece of mate
rial being subjected to a thorough and
scientific inspection, and nothing else
than apparent perfection was allowed
to go. Iter frames are of steel and the
plating of galvanized steel from
three-sixteenths to one-fonrth of an
inch in thickness. The work in com
pleting the hull has been slow on ac
count of the excellence required, and,
as finished, is pronounced a master
piece by experts and government in
spectors. In no part of her construction is so
much interest taken as in the machin
ery. Hearing ia mind that the speed
requirement is twenty-four knots, it
follows that the propelling power must
be something more than ordinary, and
it is doubtful if a finer set of engines

iron works, whose managers have
worked in some particulars under a
great disadvantage. Added to this
came the strike at Iiomestead. from
whence much of the material in the
construction of the boat was re
ceived. A strike at home also delayed
the work, and for some months during
the past winter nothing whatever
was done, but the little craft is now
neariug completion. The finishing
touches arc being put on both hull and
machinery, and it is expected that in
a few days she will be ready to slide
into the Mississippi.
It will take some days to prepare for
her trip to the sea. which promises to

and is 12 feet. 111 inches high, two

Although a special car had !eeii con

railroad, the roof, which was built
as high as the railroad tunnels would
allow, just touches his back. When
placed in his car. Rajah knocked out
the roof with his trunk. It was has

on what will probably be an eventful
journey in the care of five keepers.
