1 With American nival gunner scores
100 per cent, have coased to be unuual;
.but Marksmanship In the navy Is a rather
recent accomplishment. At Santiago 9,009
shots were fired and there were noly 123
hits. Then It daWntd upon the minds of
Khe naval authorities that ability to hit
a. fixed target did not Imply ability to
hit the target when it was moving rap-
Idly, as a warship In action ta likely to do.
Furthermore, whllo a turgctnnay rep
resent the silhouette- of a shlpNt Is not
a ship. Therefore efforts have been mado
jln the last year to secure real ships
jagalnst which the fire of a man of war
could be directed as It would be in an
lnctual engagement at sea.
The Puritan and tlio Katahdln, both
obsolete and useless as war vessels, wcro

nose, that llttlo enlightenment could be
ayrivca irom inc injury wrougni on mem
by modern guns.' Lat your, sotting all
seniimmtal consderations aside, the
Navy department 'decided to Miiurlflco a
fighting ship, the old battleship Texas,
vthlsh had done Its part In tho Spanish-
(American war and had become famous
f6r Its habit of having accidents happen
to It. Upon this craft the battleship

Features of Experiment.
To be sure, tho policy of using old ships
k targets In not new. This has boon
ato many times In Fiance and England.
Ifut the conditions under which the sink
Ins of the Texas was accomplished wore
tip novel a to give this experiment ro
rdarkable value from a technical and
strategic point of view.
JTho most striking feature of the ex
periment was the Ulstanco at which tho
firing was done, tho rangu being from
Iflva to six and a half miles for tho olght-
Inch and twelve-inch Kuna and from four
'and a half to five and u half miles for
the seven-inch. Tho accuracy of tho flro
even at greatest rango was surprising
And showed that tho new method of
'finding and holding the target at pres
ent In use In the navy is very different.
The fire was directed from the top of
the military masts, 130 feet above the
level of the sea. and the range was
found by trial shots and spotting. Tho
officers standing on the lofty fire control
'platform observed through powerful
.glasses the splash as the projectile struck
ttlM water. If the splash was beyond the
target vessel the gun elevation as vw
'ered; when the ifhot fell short the gun
Effect of One Shot,
The ship had been placed almost In
actual fighting condition, even to the
i point of having steam up and fires under
the boilers. Dummies representing the
crsw had been placed on the several
decks and in various towers. The most
.significant result was that obtained When
a twelve-Inch shell presumably contain
ing a charge of high" explosive pierced
.conning tower, burst and blew one, side
I of the tower, weighing from fifteen to
twenty tons, entirely ivav. hiirltnir It
'to the main deck below. The same shot
jentirely wrecked the bridge. The chart
'jhouse and navigation bridge were blown
enmnlAtltlv mvav nnri with hm m.t.l
1 nave gone steering wheel, compass, speak
ing tubes, telegraphlo apparatus and
. every means of navigating the ship. To
quote the statement issued by the seen
'tary of the navy:
. "The new Hampshire placed the shells
anywhere it wanted and when the gun
iners wished to have some hits on the con
inlng tower and the turret trmor in order
to observe the effect they had no trouble
Jn placing the shots at from ten to twelve
thousand yards range at just the point
"A few projectiles were directed against
the masts, so as to show what would
happen to the exposed communication
"An Inspection of the vessel after the
tiring showed Immense holes which had
been plowed through from one side to
the other, many of them being below
water and any one or two of them being
sufficient to make the vessel a total loss.
The armor of Mils vessel wa unable to
withstand the impact at the very great
n range at which we fired and the battle-
hip was a total loss after the first two
broadsides were directed at her."
Kesalta Most Impressive.
Atl the officers of the fleet were deeply
) Impressed with the accuracy and the
great aes-trMtive street oi me projeomes.
Ail the taaalklna which were placed at
the guea to represent the crews were cut
to pieces and the fumes and fire left by
the passage of high explosive projectiles
would have destroyed every living thing
on board. Tho bulkheads In places were
like sieves owing to the action of high
explosives and all the compartments be-
Sid" were completely riddled.
2 Inttructtve. as the experiment was It
cannot be repeated very frequently.
Furthermore. In spite -of Its realism the
.'shelling of the Texas did not represent
what would happen In actual warfare.

HUnts nt Movlns; Target.
In this direction the construction of
the Norfolk calrsons marks a great stop
In advance. Tho Norfolk navy yard lion
completed recently tho construction of a
floating caisson which represents on one
side a cruiser and on the other a battle
ship. Whenever It is deolred to find out
how a given section of a fighting ship
would behave under flro the section is
Installed In Its propor place on the cruiser
side or on the batlKihlp side. Then the
caisson, which enn bo taken In tow by a
fast ship. Is subjected to attack at
various ranges with small and big guns.
The material loss resulting from such ex
periments Is naturally less Important
than If, say, tho conning tower of a real
battleship were shot at by another battle
ship. After eVery single hit the caisson Is
visited by officers of the Una and staff,
who take careful observation by photo
graph, sketch and note book of every
detail of the damage Inflicted. Kach hit
has Its own story to tell and thus by
alternate attack and Inspection the au
thorities nf the navy will asqulre a store
of practical information tho llko of which
has never before been gathered by any
navy of tho world.
Incident of Target I'rnctlcr.
A curious Incident which took placo
in the course of maneuvers In Magdnlcna
Imy almost permitted medical experts
to mako realistic .observation of tho
effect ot high explosives on tlfo human
frame. Tho repair boat had gone to mark
tho holes In tho target nfter ft string of
shots hud been fired, as It Is customary
to do, whllo tho ship steamed slowly
around past the target out toward the
range to flro another string of shots,
The crew ot tho repair launch found
that thoy had left some things' that they
needed In another boat, which was an
chored off at a sato distance from the

on' noor a the snip wouia Know- notmnii
of Ills being on tho raft. After the (run
ner had soon the launch move out o.
range of tho shots they naturally as
sumed that all of the repairing pu.'f
had gone with It
Tho ship came round Into range, th(
firing flag was run up to tho fore ti'ir'o
the speed was lncreasod to ton knots a'.(
a short blast was blown on tho whlsthi
the signal to commence firing.
When tho man on the raft heard ti;
whistle blow and saw the big red ttii
flying at tho fore truck, he realized In n
Instant his peril. Frantic with fear ha
leaped to the end ot the raft and looked
across the water at the steam launch n
halt a mile away. No help could bo ex
pected rom It and It was useless t.
Jump Into the water as the bay was full
of sharks. Then he lilt upon an Idea
Wko a flash his knife was out and the
first halyard which held the target up
was cut, then tho other, and his life wa;
saved; they could not shoot now, - foi
there was nothing to shoot at. All thli
had happened in five seconds.
Gnn rolnter Snved lllwi.
It is said that a'polnter of an eight-inch
gun was In the act of squeezing the
electrlo bulb which would have sent 60
pounds ot steel flying at the target, when
It dropped, and he turned around with a
queer look on his face and remarked:
"Why, there's somebody on that raft!"
Glasses were trained on the raft and
the excited boatswain was dtscovefed,
none too soon.
Another advance in the training ot a
gunner was made with the adoption ot
an Ingenious attachment which Is affixed
to the practice gun and stimulates the
motion ot s moving ship.
Oood gunnery with the new system and
in action depends not only upon the skill
ot the pointer; it rests upon the speedy
team work of the whole crew. The firing
pointer has to keep the gun on the target,
so has the trainer who swings the gun
from right to left; the sight setter must
set his sights according to the orders he
receives over the telephone from the con
ning tower. Twelve charges a. minute Is
now the average for the seven-Inch gun.
It takes thirteen seconds for a twelve
inch shell to reach a target at a range
of 10,000 yards.
As seven seconds are allowed to the
spotters and three seconds to the sight
setters, the gun is loaded, primed and
fired while the first projectile is still in
the air. With the new practice system
the gun pointer points his gun as he
would under actual fighting conditions.
A small card bearing the outline of a
ship is attached to the gun and when Its
bullseye is on the cross wires of the!
telescope's lens the pressure ot the
pointer's hand on a firing key releases
a hammer which dots the target card and
records the accuracy of his aim.
Tho new system of training pointers
and registering their accuracy auto
matically enable the navy to realise
large savings In the shape of ammunition.
Some $2,000,000 a year go In smoke from
the muzzles ot the guns ot battleships
and the north Atlantic squ&iron alone
spends more at Its quarterly practice
than was spent during the battle ot
The navy is now studying means to
fight airships and aeroplanes. Airships
on account ot their large bulk and stow
pl would b sully 4troy.4 by gun-
fire. Aeroplanes, small and apeody, pre
sent a more arduous problem.
Firing has been done without much
success at kites held by ropes attached
to vessels. The usual gun seems power
less against aeroplanes. This summer
unusually large kites will be used, again&t
which gunners will train a nuw gun, a
one-pounder, which at on elevation of
85 degrees can throw Its projectiles to a
height of 18,000 feet.
The German army guards very Jeal
ously its secrets, but it t" rumored that
kites tho size of real aeroplanes have been
used at maneuvers to test tho value of
tho no-called balloon destroyer. This is
a gun mounted on a powerful armored
car which throws a projectllo weighing
nine pounds to a height of "-',000 fen.
In devising novel moving targets for
rifle and field nrtltlory practice tho Ger
mans havo shown a good deal ot In
genuity. Dlscardtng the moving targets which
woro pulled by horses, capstans or sta
tionary engines, the German army Is now
using powerful steam traction engines
which carry four rope drums able to re
ceive over 8,000 feet of wire ropo ono-
qunrter of an Inch In diameter. An auto
matic device insures a smooth winding of
the wire rope. Tho shaft of the drum is
driven by two electric .njtons.
The targets, which are moved forward,
backward or sideways at a fcpecd corre
sponding with tho conditions obtaining in
real military operations, represent Infan
try, cavalry and artillery. They are made
of some light stuff such as pastboard
nnd linen and aro about tho natural slio
of a man or a vehicle with Its horses.
They are carried on n sled, tho upper
frame, of which Is 6onnected with tho
lower by hinges so as to permit Us boirur
turned around at a moment' notice In
case advancing or retreating Infantry Is
to bo represented. The approximate speed
of the targets Is recorded.
The latest and most spectacular con
trivance for teaching infantry to shoot
comes from France. Motion picture
films havo been taken of cavalry charges
with tho effect, which In "movies" is so
thrilling, of horses galloping right Into
tho auditorium. Tho scrcon on which

PIPE DREAMS SPURRING HOPE
Science Planning to Dispense with
the Ilniipy lien nnd Languor
If science doesn't hold a destructive, al
most a paralyzing, hand In tho matter ot
Inventions of food substitutes, there may
be a strike among bensto and .birds and
fishes that will cause more disaster than
panics and plagues combined.
Only tho other day one ot the high-
browed investigators declared that he waa
on the Immediate trail of a formula which
would enable the world to be Independent
of the hen, at least In the matter of eggs;
and now comes the announcement that
another ot thene upbuilding, synthetic
chemists has actually produced a milk
which will take away tiie larger part of
poor bossy's purpose in the wwid.
It is true that the first rumor proved to
bo a flash In the pan; merely tho state
ment of a scientist that some time etnrs
would be produced from the air and a
few other cheap Ingredients, which waa
instantly seized upon as a present truth
by the yellow editor ot a Bund ay paper
and exploited In a vivid, ctutxoatlo page
of misstatements and exaggerations
And In the cane of the oowtesa milk the
only authority worth mentioning who has
been quoted In Its favor Is Sir WlUiam
Crookes, a somewhat Impressionable man,
for a hardheaded Investigator. And all
he says is that such "milk" la palatable.
He doesn't have a good word for Its nouis
tshlng properties or, indeed, pat It on the
head In any other way. It may, then, be
assumed that It is not yet ready to wipe
the cow out of exlstenoe.
But suppose the oow and the hen should
gtt word of the Intention of Bciese to da
away with them and. should determine to
start a little animal and fowl boycott to
frighten the human race, what lamentable
results would follow untesa they brought
man to their feet and made htm sign an
agreement to keep Investigating hands
away from oggs and milk. What with
dogs talking and monkeys trained, in the
niceties ot etiquette, it Is only a step or
so for such action to be realized. The best
thing to do Is to call off the scientists.
It may save trouble and, anyway, the
real eggs and milk are good enough when
they it a fair c h,Jio. Cfrelai, Ztwder,

The better trmuM u, cows and heifers
as well as common canners, have been

the latter port of the week this break
was mostly recovered so that at the

HOGS An active and short market.
with the general run of prices a nickel
higher than yesterday, were the main
features ot the trade in hogs this morn
ing. Aa often Is the case when receipts
are comparatively light, speculators
bought freely at the opening, taking
about two-thirds of the hogs at fully a
nickel advance. Packers apparently hod
some orders to fill and set about trying
to make their purchases on a steady
basis, but were unable to do so, What
hogs they took from first hands showed
about the same advance as those sold
on speculating and shipping account.
imra was a very ugni uenianu uvui

8HE13P As usual on the last dav Cf
the week no fresh supplies of lambs or
sheep showed up, hence values remain
practically the same as yesterday and
the day before.
Prices at the close of the week do not
show much change from -a week ago, but
when considering the quality ot the of
ferings, : r lino lambs In reality are about
10315c higher, apd choice ewes and weth
ers are, almost 25c higher than the way
soles were made at the olose of last week.
Fat yearlings were In very meager sup
ply, there not being enough to form an
accurate Idea as to current values. It is
a very general thing, however, that the
trade In yearlings follows that on lambs.
During the latter part ot the week a
utrlng of protty decent yoarllngs changed
hands at 85.00. There was apparently a
very fair outlet for the bulk of the fat
offerings most of the week, there being
a little depression In tho trade Monday
and Thursday, due chiefly to very liberal
receipts on those days. While the condi
tions surrounding the eastern mutton
trade have changed very llttlo from a
week ago. there seems to be some uncer
tainty nnd weakness In that quarter right
at tho close ot the week.
Feeding lambs and ewes were In fair
demand on most days, lambs ot good
quality and averaging from 52 to 60
pounds, and light weight ewes, being most
sought after. Owing largely to a liberal
supply on Monday ami Tuesday, trade
was somewhat draggy and prices were a
little easier, but a light ml d-week supply
had the natural tendency tor creating a
rather bullish feeling, resulting In an lm
provement in values. Best feeder lambs
are now Belling around J6.10C.20, or about
10915c higher than at the end of last
week. Feeding ewes were in relatively
largo nupply alt week and show little it
any change from a week ago. A few
loads of ewes, however, fat enough for
killing, sold on Wednesday at 13.IO&3.40.
Not many yearllngN or wethers were dis
posed ot on feeding account.
Ab already mentioned, tho market was
liberally supplied, especially during the
first days of the week and on Thurnday,
the receipts for the whole six days ag

SOME JOY FOR THeToOZERS
llio Grande Srntem Sends n Thrill
ThrpURh Jnar Circles In
There was Joy along Broadway when It
liecame known that In Ban Benito, la
he lower Rio Grande valley, a now
obering system hod been discovered ao-
Jdentally. By It a man who haa lm
Ibed too freely of cocktails, highballs
i- wine has only to spend seven minutes
a cooler, and when he comes out ha'ai
. s sober 03 tho proverbial Judge.
Now thero isn't any need to worrjf
'jout anything except the spending at
noney for the libations. The new sobeevt
-wr system performs wonders, but doessfH

the spender's pocket. But think of ltl
Heven minutes after you've taken in
fiend whose walking was unstoody and
whoso speech was thick he comna out
with a sneer on his countenance when
you suggest that he's even had a drtaft.
Meet a few friends, spend an hour or
so chatting over a bar, drink a few
cocktails or highballs, and then comes)
the knowledge that In this sad condi
tion you've got to confront your wife.
Just laugh at it now, dally a little longer
at the bar, for you know that it's only
a matter of seven minutes, and then you
can go to your home and mention eome-t
thing about being detained In tho office.
Sho'll believe it, too, for according to
those who have tried the new system
it makes a man feel as it he had been
on the water wngon for a year. Try the
convivial soul business at the bar a
secorid time, and It'll merely mean an
other seven minutes before you walk out
with deep disgust for the man who
doesn't know enough to take the seven
The discovery wasn't mode by Edison.
It waa an accident. While a car was be

tables the men In charge of the work
found an intoxicated man lying in a.
glitter. He had been In the sun with
tho temperature at 100 degrees. He waa
in a very bad state when they put him
In thenar, where the temperature was
only Just above freezing point. Seven
minutes afterward there was a banging
on theVdoor of the car, and when it waa
opened an Indignant and sober man
wanted to know who In the name of all
that was cold had put him In there.
So the Broadway drinker can keep his
courage, and as soon as the freezing
and hot rooms have been established in
this city he can scoff at the idea ot
being caught with a "Jag."
"I shsv shall shee you In sheven min
utes, old chap," he may say as he en
ters tho cooler. And when he makes hla
exit from that place his remarks may be:
"Had the finest Jag ot my lite. Just
now. Simply wonderful, but I wanted
to , rid myself ot the don't core, don't
mind feeling, so I entered the sobertor
turn. Going right home now."
One very, very hot room and one at
freezing point, and you have IL New,
