THE ?'SKH OF Tili: SA H ll A TIE.
Thu? one day out of every seven han for HO long
a time in (he world's history been set aside as dit?
ferent from other days is within Itself phenomenon.
If there IK nothing in the custom to make lt a use
ful one, then it most assuredly Involves a fearful
wiwte of time. Think of how much time IK consum
ed in Sabbaths in an ordinary life time Fifty two
out of every year for seventy years, thc Divinely
allotted spuce for a human life, equals three thous
and ?ix hundred and forty dftvs, or suv ten years,
for it laekr. only ten days of Ofling thut much.
Mow much could he accomplished in those ten
years? How many furrows could a man run In his
fields? How many bolts of cloth could be wooven?
How many articles ot marchandise sold? How
many dollars made?
Hut that ls just ono way of looking ut it. And
a superficial way at that.
Tho law of the Sabbath seems to he based on the
great principies of nature. And men worklnK
seven days out of every seven would not gain much
il anything by the additional labor. They would be
far more apt to loose by lt. They would be sure to
deteriorate physically. m*r.ially, anil morally. The
man who works the six secular day.) and then puts
in a day's wor\ on Sunday will Just loose Monday.
That's all. That is it may be all and it may not
It ls Bald the human heart saves several thous
and strokes in light hours of sleep ns compared
with eight hours of time when one ls awake. The
heart ls a very delicate vital part. And when it
t-tops it stops. And when lt stops, there is n pro
found silence, a long eternal silence.
When a man goes seven days out of seven, he is
putting lt up to that one organ that keeps bim go
ing in a strenuous fashion. And sometime he will
' -> surprised at its protests. Why not take the day
in the way we all know we should take lt?
! AH it has boen said the seventh is a Sabbath
day that a man may have e chance to get acquainted
with' his wife and his children and to cultivate his
friends. Are not friendships of that character
But has not every man also a part in his being
that calls fnr something that never was seen on
land or sea? Does ho not occasionally cast his
eye up Into the deep blue and wonder why? Do not
the old quosttons that have haunted all men from
the beginning still haunt us?
Do we not need the one day that ls called thc
Lord's Day as a reminder? Do wi not need to listen
to men who speak to us of other things than those
as think of all the other days? Is thoro not. a
diversion in it worth all lt cost to a bt sincss man tn
have his mind turned away from temporal thlnrfi?
Can he not come back to his other life and live it
Tho police are not to be censured for letting that
criminal get away yesterday afternoon. Anderson
has been such a good town recently the cops are

TEACH THE WORLD KINDNESS.

The wisest teacher of all the ?gea reminded th?
people of His day that "The poor ye have with yoi

with an everlasting sympathy for th's poor In body

Hiches and poverty are largely comparative, atti
the demons of blackness grin with satlsfactlot
when base ingratitude ts shown by those to whon
fate has dealt kindly, given homes, love, friends
a comfortable competence, and these, looking upoi
the few more fortunate, and blind to world widi
poverty and despair and want, bemoan their fates
Whom tbe Gods would destroy, they first maki
ungrateful, might bo truly said. Loosen this da:
the sordid casement about a callous heart and le
in a glorious influence by liberally aiding those wh<
in Greenville are carrying on thc outdoor work o
caring for thoso whose lives are dark, cheerless
and even loveless. Adjutant Cook finds these sad
dened lives, ascertains their needs, and these noni
women of the charity aid administer and procur
the necessary means that hunger and cold an?
hopelessness have exiled.
What we give in life is what comes back to ut
Sow selfishness and reap loneliness, sow Indiffer
once and reap contempt, sow rich, fill your barn:
and reap six feet of earth untouched by the tears o
love or the flowers of friendship.
Life has many a twist. That little golden hairei
baby surrounded by comfort, may in coming year
drift from Gie home. That little chap on your kne
will in years to come be far from mother and fathei
It may be the wolf of want will trail them. Teacl

of the American people that If tbe old government
were overthrown they would fall Into the hands o!

pelled the i'rar. It was always known by his

nation, and by the English themselves, that in
Washington America had found a leader v.l. J could
be induced by no earthly motive to tell a falsehood
or to break un engagement or to commit any dis
honorable act. Men of this moral type are happily
no* rare, and we have all met them in our ex

WAR TN HER THE SEA.
When the three British armored cruisers
Aboukir. Hogue .:nd Cressy were all sunk within
tho space o' abot t an hour by one German subma
rine, the world WCB given a startling demons!ra
tion of the possibilities ai this type of underwater
fighting craft. In the subsequent fighting at sea
these vessels have played such an important part
as to give considerable justification to Admiral Sir
Percy Scott's prediction that when submarinen
have been fully developed they will entirely dis
place the great dreadnoughts that form the prin
cipal fighting strength of the navies of the present
During thc five years preceding the war. sub
marine fighting emits had been developed to a
high state of efficiency. Among the new vessels,
submersibles had almost entirely superseded ?he
original type thnt bore thc name of submarine.
For understanding the character of the fighting
craft that han -come into such prjmiacnc? lt ia
necessary to distinguish between the two types oi
v?rsela. The original submarine was designed pri
marily to operate under water and was far from
being a seaworthy craft when running on thc sur
face. These vessels wero'therefore valuable main
ly for coast defense and for operations within re
stricted limits in connection with n fleet of war
ships. The submarine, while having nil tho under
water efficiency of the submarine, ls built to op
erate on thc surface as well, and is practically as
seaworthy as a, destroyer. Such vessels are cap
able of making long voyages and of taking tlte^ of
fensive independently and not simply an auxiliaries
to a fleet of warships. All the later vessels, while
commonly called submarines, are In fact sub
mersibles. The original submarines still In service
aro used almost exclusively for coast defense. ?
The submarine is shaped like a cigar, a cross
section at any point along the hull being practically
circular. In the submersible tb<e shape is retained
for thc inner shell, but over this is built a hull that
gives the completed vessel the shape of a torpedo
boat Tb* inner EheU'eont^lnS^all ? the working
parts of the boat; while the apace between the twa
shells ls utilized for the water-lmlkist compart
ments: :fnich^*wtion fllledTovere^e tbs buoyancy
of tho craft depth'beneath, tho water. The lntorlpr
of a BubmerslHe impresses ene as being a thing of
supreme nervous energy, with every detail devoted
to'thc accomplishment of just one thing-that ol
flipping In close to the enemy's ship and sinking
lt with a torpedo. So completely,is,tne vessel filled
with machinery and equipment for this purpose
that only veW limited space cnn he utilised for
quartering and feeding the crew.
While the newer eubmerslbles*are equipped with
tubes for firing torpedoes from.tho stern and '*en
from th?? side, the principal fi?tht!n?r *?uipm?-?'
at the bow. Here are located either two or fouT
torpedo tubes. Unlike tbe guns of a battleship,
these tubes must be aimed at the mark by aiming
the entire vessel. Each tube is closed by a trap
d"or that opens automatically when the torpedo ls
fired and closed the instant the torpedo has started
on its journey of destruction. Back of tbe torpedo
tubes 1B a compartment for Btorage of torpedoes
and in this are also* sleeping quarters tor. the of
ficers ot the vessel. In the deck above this com
partment is a hatch for taking in the torpedoes.
Next comes a compartment containing one of thc
two electric storage batteries which furnish pow
er tor propelling the vessel when it is under water.
Back of this, at the center of the vessel, is the
central operating compartment, from which ev ??y
movement of the vessel ls controlled. Next comes
a compartment containing the second .set of stor
age, batteries, then the engine room and workshop,
and finally the compartment at the Stern containing
the propelling and steering machinery. The crew,
which often numbers from 20 to 00 men on a sub
mersible, are usually quartered in hammocks in
the compartments containing the storage batteries.
Of all the equipment of submarine vessels the
moat important is the periscope, a simple device
that serves aa the eyes of the craft when it 1B run
ning submerged. On the latest submersibles two
of these instruments are used, one being fixed to
give a view straight ahead and the other being so
mounted that lt can be turned to face in any direc
tion. Although serving such a vital pail In the op
eration of a submarine tho periscope ls exceeding
ly simple in construction. The light enters the
hood ot th? periscope horizontally. It then passes
through a prismatic Uns that deflects-it downward
at right anglos Into the verfiele shaft v>f the per
iscope. At the bottom of the shaft is a second lena
that again turns the rays of light to a horizontal
direction. This ls the simplest. form ot tho per
iscope. Usually there are additional lenses for
magnifying the view. After passing through the
bottom lena the Image Is either thrown on a screen
or is viewed directly through a telescope by tbe
officer in command. Tho one disadvantage in the
periscope ts that lt gives only a limited view in the
one direction la which it happens to be facing. At
tempts have been made to. develop ? panorama per
iscope that usos u "fish-eye" lena and give* a view
of the entire horizon, but this device has not yet
bien dereloped sufficiently to come into general
use. When the submarine ls submerged, only .the
tops of the periscopes are visible above the surface.
These are difficult to see and still more difRcnlt
hit and thia accounts for tbe apparent case .wi
which a submarine can steal up within ra
a battleship and fire Its torpedo without bel
