Capt. Mark U. Hersoy, quartermas

fantry, a hero of tho Santiago cam
paign, who has teen service In tho
Philippines, nnd Is juit from Manila,
Is enjoying n Icavo of absence, and is
staying with relatives out In Wyo

was nppolntod to West Point by Con
gressman lloutolle, and graduated from
West Point In 1887. Capt. Hersey Is n
quiet, unaiiumlng man, slight of build

There Is nothing about his npponrnnco
that would Indlento that ho had been
through tho yellow fever of tho San

tho captain's wife, who accompanied
him to Manila, CnpL Horsoy would
still be on duty about Manila. Mrs.
Horsoy desired to return homo, nnd
so tho captain got nuthorlty to accom
pany her to IJoston, with permission to
enjoy n thirty dnys' leave of absonoo,
"It's hard to tell Just how many In
surgent wero In thoso engagements,"
snld Capt. Hersey."but It was estimated
by thoso on tho firing lino ns about 000
In tho first engagement and 0,000 In
tho second. I ruivor learned who com
manded tho opposition, but thoy woro

I The most unique plan suggeitrri ly
, military experts for transporting
troop In time of war across wide
rivers Is perhaps that proposed by a
French army expert recently and sue
I re fully operated during the PreRea
manruvcr. it constats of a portable
bridge to be carried about with the
j troops and thrown across the stream In
emergencies and supported by means
of balloons. The balloons are not, how-
ever, allowed to flcut above, but are
pi sled boneath the planking. A doaen
i lsrge inflated balloons anchored at the
('wired height can thus be made to
purport a planking on which n hundred
men ran safely cross at once. In the
wider stream three or four of these
planks are necessary to be used, but
they can b bolted together nnd thus
made to serve a'.l nrartlcsl purpose of
a single span. The only difficulty that
It was expected the new Idea would
encounter was In the case of low
banked streams, where It would be Im
possible to nlaec the balloons beneath
the bridge and above tbe water. When
this was tried, however. It was found
that the same purpose was served by
floating the balloons on top of the
water, with the advantage that fewer
balloons were needed to ..(.port the
planking. There Is no difficulty what
ever In carrying the material for the
hastily constructed bridge about. The
planks are. of course, easily enough
carried and the balloons could be read
ily Inflated with a balloon wagon This
has become an accepted part of mili
tary paraphernalia in any event. o
that no Inconvenience ti experienced
on this score The balloons are made
of a heavy textured silk that readily
sianas wis strain tnua placed upon
them. Thsy are repeatedly varnished
and specially eoatod so that the otirfuee
Is Immured to the effects of ordinary
blows. They are somewhat smaller
than the regular army balloon. In the
French maneuvers, by sending a com
pany at a time aero the bridge hast
ily thrown aerom the river, ten regi
ments were sent a crow in lew than un
hour and a half, Including the time
necessary to bring the army and bal
loon wagons up from tbe rear, and the
time that It took to Inflate the bal
loons and throw the bridge Into posi
tion. This Is murh better time than
waa made by the prartlre of uny other
plan In iwe in the French armr
all Time Amnnd the rnrtti, J
Tho dlstanoo which n regular walker,
who takes n fairly long trnmp every
day, will cover In n lifetime Is some
thing quite startling. A man has been
found In Hngland who hns walked i
moro than six times tho distance i
nrotind tho earth. 1
Not long ago a business firm In
Hngland offered, na an advertisement,
prizes for nil softs of "chnmplons."
Among ths rest wns n prlto for the
postman who could provo that ho had
walked the greatest number of miles, i
This person was found to bo Paul
Hemnol of Hwnrdeston. Norfolk, Kng-;
land. Ho has been forty-thrco years a ,
postman nnd during nil that tlm. ban j
nevor been ono official dny nbscnt from
duty. He In still discharging his duty I
Ho proved that In thoso forty-thrco 1
ears ho has walked, In carrying tho
mail, upward of 100,000 miles. No
other postman nppronehed this record,
nnd It In doubtful It It can be on tu hod
by nny living man In any occupation.
