GEN. FLAGLEK'S REPORT.
Bnae Beeaaaaaeadatlomtj la the Chl't
Ortnaiee Report la Whleh Back
lslsued la laterrated EatlaaatcB. Ee.
Gen. D. W. Flagler, chief of ord
nance of the U. 8. army, and former
commandant of Rock Inland arsenal , baa
completed his first annual report to the
secretary of r. In it be speaks of the
labor and d ffljulty in supplying fortifi
cations with new model disappearing car
riages for large guns are greater than
that of supplying the guns themselves.
The report recommends an appropriation
for enlarging the facilities for the manu
facture of carriages at the Watcrtown
arsenal. The department has thus far
completed two 8 inch, one lO-inch.and one
12 -.inch breech loading steel rifled guns.
The first 8 -inch gun has been fired 300
rounds without injury. One of the8
inch guns was tested with German
smokeless powder, and 50 pounds gave
a higher projectile Telocity with about
the same pressure as 125 pounds of black
powder. Among the estimates is one of
1326,000 for the equipment of the south
wing of the army gun foundry, and one
of 1 1,122.000 for oil tempered and an
nealed steel for 8, 10 and
12-inch guns, including the parts
required for the manufacture of
a type 16-inch gun. .
Other estimates are: For steel 12
inch sea coast mortars, 725.000; for
their carriiges f 449,500; for carriages for
new 9.10 and 12-lnchgUDS.fi. 805 000;for
enlargement of the gun-curiage plant at
Watertown, Mass., $151,000; for armor
piercing projectiles, $20,000; deck
piercing 12-inch shells, $103,009. altera
tionof 15 and 16 inch carriages,
$100,000. Discussing experiments with
small arms the report recommends the
retention of the present Springfield sin
gle shot rifla until such time as a perfect
magazine gun can be secured. The new
30-caiiber Springfield is reported as suc
cessful with smokeless powder.
With special reference to the great gun
heretofore mentioned, and which is about
equal in size to the 1 irgest in the world;
"If an appropriation should be made
available by June 3d. 1892. the type 16 inch
gun could hardly tie made and tested be
fore June 30, 1895. while the first three
16 inch guns for servxe would not be
completed before the end of 1693 Re
cent improvements in the resis'ing power
of ships' armor would seem to still further
emphasize the already r cognized neces
sity for guns of this caliber. As it would
be foolish to conclude that the improve
ments in tbe resisting power of armor
have reached the r final limit, and as
much time is r quired for completing a
type gun of such high power as may have
become an absolute necessity for overs
coming such resistance, the sooner the
work is commenced tbe better."

A To'at Erl'ptte of tut .nooa te be re
A total eclipse of tbe moon, which can
be viewed to good advantage from this
city, is scheduled for November 15, next
Sunday. The times of the phases of tbe
eclipse are as follows, central standard

The eclipse will begin on the lower
edge. The event is of astronomical im
portance for the opportunity it gives to
observe occulationj of faint stars by the
moon. If the times . of disappearance of
a star behind the moon and of its reap
pearance are noted data are furnished for
a determination of the moon's diameter
and distance from the earth. Observations
of occupations are also valuable to delect
the presence of a lunar atmosphere. If
tbe moon has a dense atmosphere the
light of a star should, on account of ab
sorption of light by the moon's atmos
phere, be diminished gradually as it ap
proaches the moon's edge. But if the
moon has no atmosphere the light of tbe
star should nm&in undiminished as it ap
proaches the moon's edge and tbe star
should disappear suddenly. A more del
ica'.e test of a lunar atmosphere, howtver.
is in the length of tiie the Mar is gone
from sight. The effect of refraction of
tbe star's rays in tbe moon's a'misphere
would be such as to mike tbe sttr con
tinue visible after it bad disappeared be
hind tbe moon and to make it visible
again before it had actually come out
from behind tbe moon.
Thus the interval between disappear
ance 8Dd reappearance of the star would
be shorter than the computed interval .
Evidence thus far collected seems to show
that the moon has some atmosphere, al
though extremely rare.

Great was the alarm in the pn.!.iec of
Rome, The empress had lost her coMly
diadem and it could not be found. They
searched in every direction, but it wr.s nil
in vain. Finally, it was proclaimed i:i the
public streets: "The empress has lost a
precious diadem. Whoever restores it
within thirty days shall receive a princely
reward. But he who delays, and brings it
after thirty days, shall lose his head."
Among the crowds that thronged Koine's
stately halls and thoroughfares was an
eastern sage, a learned man, who loved
goodness and lived a righteous life, it
chanced one night as he was strolling up
and down beneath tbe clear moonlit sky
he saw the diadem sparkling at his feet.
He seized it quickly and brought it to his
dwelling, and then, after the thirty days
bad expired, returned it to the empress.
"What dost thou mean by this?" she in.
quired. "Why didst thou delay until this
hour? Dost thou know the penalty?"
"I delayed until now," the sage answered
calmly, "so that thou might know that I
return your diadem not for the sake of the
reward, still less out of fear of punishment,
but solely to comply with the Divine com
mand not to withhold from another that
which belongs to him."
"Blessed be thy God!" the empress an
swered, and dismissed the sage without
further reproof. Dr. Abrain S. Isaacs iu
