The Outtle of the rnture.
Lord Wblsoley'a picture of the battle of the
future In his review of Col. Maurice's article
on war is remarkable chiefly because of the
confidence with which be relies upon the
elimination of noise: 'One remarkable change
will be the absence of nearly all terrific noise
which the discharge of 600 or COO field guns
and the roar of musketry caused in all great
battles. V e shall have practically no smoke
to mark the position of the enemy's batteries
ar.d troops in action. The sound of cannon
will be slight and will no longer indicate to
distant troops where their comrades are en
gaged or the point upon which tbey should
consequently march." What with smckeiesa
powder and noiseless artillery all our old
ideesxif battle will be revolutionized. But is
it not possible that now and then, at the
proper psychological moment, a commander
who suddenly served out some of the genuine
old ro&ring kind of powder might do more by
the sudden outbreak of the battle thunder to
demoralize the enemy than by the unmasking
of a whole park of artillery t Pall Mall Ga
Prtson Labor Contracts,
A very excellent suggestion has been mode,
which, if carried out, would tend to do away
with much of the opposition to prison labor
that is expressed by workmen. It is that the
prisoners should be kept at work upon diver
sified induKtrie. Thus the shoe manufacturer
would experience no tangible competition,
and tho fouudryman would not have the
somewhat just grounds for complaint which
have been afforded him in the post Tne
proposed system would be beneficial In all
save one respect. It would prevent the
prtson labor from being as profitable as it is
now. But as prisons should be conducted for
the protection of the community and refor
mation of the criminal, such a consideration
is of very little weight. The various lines of
industry would be adapted to the different
intelligences of tho convict, and when he left
the prison the trade learned there would not
be branded as a "state prison trade."
A Veteran's Ileavy Blow.
At Atlanta, Oa., recently, on old veteran
of the Mexican and Confederate wars was in

lowed with a blow. Buena Vista and Ma
nassas do not permit them to swallow insult.
llus particular veteran had hired a man to
repair the sidewalk in front of his homo. In
some altercation the man applied to the vete
ran an epithet which no man hears without
feeling the temperature of his blood rise, and
the veteran struck him. Although he is
more than bO years of ago, be bos the vigor
of 40, and wbon the man who was struck
picked himself he felt as if he bad been struck
by lightning. A policeman was at band and
arrested the lnsulter. aud marched him off.
The arm which did the striking has eighteen
leaden bullets in it. Pittsburg Dispatch.

.That man is in a sad condition who is ever
making prodigious effort to do more than he

of gravitation holds the universe on its back
as easily as a miller swings over ills shoulder
a bag of wheat. The winds never run them
