LIFE ON A WARSHIP.
Why the Men Are Allowed to Indulge
In Athletic Sports.
To see a thirteen inch gun loaded
and fired is a sight not to be forgotten.
The projectile is thirteen inches in
diameter, about three feet in length
and weighs 1,100 pounds. The powder
charge for target practice is 250
pounds. The cost for each shot is
about 500. When all is ready on the
range the signal siren sounds, there is
a blinding flash, a roar like thunder
and a jarring shock. Then you hear
the whining screech of the shell, for
all the world like a fast express round
ing a sharp curve. The projectile is
visible almost from the time it leaves
the gun. You see it rip through the
target and strike the water beyond,
throwing up a column of liquid many
feet high. The shell skips, much like
the flat stone "skipper" of our boy
hood, and again a column of water
shoots up two miles or more farther
out, to be repeated time and again.
The shell in its flight can be watched
without the aid of glasses for eight
miles or more in clear weather.
"While the life of a sailor, from cap
tain down to apprentice, is an almost
continual round of work, some time is
found for athletic' sports, such as
boat racing, football and baseball. The
object of this is to give the men rec
reation and at the same time to foster
the spirit of competition. Besides, it
makes the men easier to manage. The
ship with a strong football or baseball
team or the fastest race boat almost
invariably has a happy and easily
managed crewa crew that will swear
that its officers are the finest men in
the world, and likewise the officers
swear by such a crew. Some ships
have training tables for their athletic
teams, the expense usually being de
frayed by the officers. The team or
boat crew, as the case may be, is
petted by the officers and idolized by
the crew, and for some time before a
hard contest the men are excused from
various' duties in order that they may
give more time to training.
Every battleship and cruiser has its
race boat, purchased by contributions
from officers and men. The prices paid
for these boats is, as a rule, contingent
upon their winning certain specified
races. The builders are willing to take
a chance, knowing that the crew will do
its best to win. For a winning boat the
price is often as much as 1,000, while
for a boat that proves less speedy the
builder will accept $500 or less. On the
result of a fleet boat race as much as
30,000 has been known to change
hands, and large sums are also
wagered on baseball and football
games. This is, of course, contrary to
the letter of the regulations but the
sporting instinct is as strong in the
navy as elsewhereand it is not always
possible to hold down the lid.Leslie's
The End of the World.
That the earth will eventually dry up
and all living things will die of thirst
is the theory of a scientific writer. He
says that in both Africa and Asia, and
indeed in all the great levels of the
world, the water beds are drying up.
Many lakes well known during the his
torical period have entirely disappear
ed, while others are shrinking rapidly.
"Explorations in central Asia have
proved that for centuries a zone stretch
ing from the east to the southeast of
this part of the czar's dominion has
been drying up. Deserts are gradually
spreading, and reports show that it is
only in the neighborhood of mountains,
round whose brows vapors condense
and fall, that irrigation can be carried
on or life itself can be preserved."
Just What He Meant.
An American in London once attend
ed a dinner where Henry Arthur Jones
told a story about Beerbohm Tree.
"Mr. Tree," said the playwright, "met
a friend of his one afternoon in Regent
"The two stood and conversed a little
while, and then Mr. Tree said:
'Have you been down to see me act
lately, my boy?'
'No too poor,' said the other.
'Too poor,' Mr. Tree exclaimed.
'Why, you spend enough on wine and
"But the other, nettled, interrupted.
'I don't mean I'm too poor. I mean
you're too poor,' he said."
Cramp In the Less.
People who are subject to cramp in
the legs should always be provided
with a good strong piece of cord, espe
cially in their bedrooms. When the
cramp comes on take the cord, wind it
round the leg over the place where it
is cramped, take an end in each hand
and give it a sharp pull, one that will
hurt a little, and the cramp will cease
instantly. People much subject to
cramp in bed have found great relief
from wearing on each leg a garter of
wide tape which has several thin slices
of cork stitched on to it.
The Tools Lacked.
"Why don't you go to work?" said a
charitable woman to a tramp before
whom she had placed a nicely cooked
"I would," replied the vagrant, "if I
had the tools."
"What sort of tools do you want?"
asked the hostess.
"A knife and fork," said the tramp.
W Eat Too Fast.
"The trouble is that we eat too fast,"
said the man who worries about health.
"That's right," answered the man
who worries about money. "Some of
us eat so faut that our incomes can't
keep up with our grocery bills."Wash
He who comes up to his own idea of
greatness must always have had a very
low standard of it in his mind.Haz
Snobs and Automobiles.
There is a class of snobs who ap
parently regard the fact that they
have wealth, enough to possess a
motor car as a sort of a patent of
nobility authorizing them to drive at
will over things that walk.' It is this
class which is doing so much to in
jure automobiling. It would seem
that the motor car is a coming institu
tion. While today it is the plaything
of the rich, there is every reason to
believe that in the near future it will
be an article of service to all classes
of people. It is swift, and can be
made quite, and it is cleanly. The
universal use of the motor car instead
of the horse would remove the great
est part of the dirt that accumulates
upon the street. It would do away
with the noise of horse and driver.
But before the automobile can be
come popular among the poeple the
class of snobs referred to must be
done away with. We wish that police
departments had the courage and the
ability to enforce existing ordinances.
If these proved insufficient city coun
cils should pass ordinances reducing
the speed limit to four miles per hour.
It would greatly relieve those who are
irritated by dodging autos qn crowded
thoroughfares if our municipal judges
would, in cases where there was no
doubt as to gross violation of the
rate of speed ordinances, give the
offenders a straight sentence of thirty
days at the rock pile. These fellows
have no regard for others, and it
would be a sort of soothing balm to
many of us to feel that they were
working off their reckless depravity
in a way that could not injure others.
It does seem as though consideration
of ordinary decency and humanity
would lead the owner and driver of a
machine, who had already killed or
maimed a person, to restrain his zeal
and speed sufficiently at least to keep
within the speed limit. There are
quarters in which those considera
tions have no place, and it is such
people who should be taught a proper
lesson by magistrates who have the
courage and determination to enforce
the law. These reckless drivers of
motor cars are doing much to defer
indefinitely the popular establish
ment of the automobile as a thing of
use as well as a pleasure. In France,
where the motor car has reached its
highest development, drivers of ma
chines must go through a regular
course of instruction before taking a
machine through the crowded streets.
Those who are interested in automo
biling should interest themselves in a
movement looking toward the better
instruction of those entrusted with the
handling of machines. They should
start a movement among the owners
of machines looking toward the pro
hibition of women and children from
operating them. The automobile can
easily become a more destructive
agent than a railroad locomotive.
The man who handles a powerful
motor car should have some qualifica
tions for his work. He must learn to
control not only his machine but him
self. A great many of the drivers
cannot control themselves. They
must be taught, even though it become
necessary to send them to the rock
Had Never Heard of it.
A certain newspaper man in Iowa
relates an experience that might shed
some light on the mail order business.
He was at the town depot and saw a
farmer friend receive a set of harness
from Chicago. He attempted to prove
to the latter that he was making a
mistake, as any one of the local deal
ers would furnish him the same or bet
ter goods just as cheap, and the profit
would be kept at home. "But, "said
the farmer "this is the first time I have
heard that there is a harness shop in
this town. I have taken your paper
for five years and have never seen a
line of advertising in it about such
an institution in all that time. But
you can bet the Chicago house has
kept me posted."Aleaxndria Citizen.
Railroad Tracks Creep.
The rails on a track that appears
to be well laid often begin to move
lengthwise, so slowly that their mo
tion is imperceptible, until its results
have accumulated, but with such great
force that nothing will stop it. The
onward movement of the rail tears up
spikes and shears off steel bolts.
The motion is always in the direction
of traffic and is due to the moving
trains. To prevent this is still a
question unanswered, but golden
grain belt beer will prevent ill health.

Mary H. Walters 0^546 St. Clair Ave.,

months, I was given up to die. I had
fever and ague, my nerves were

stomach was so weak, from useless
doctors' drugs, that I could not eat.
Soon after beginning to take Electric
Bitters, I obtained relief, and in a

Mrs. Christina Bohn, who recently

Winona for $10,200 damages for in

by being run down by a bicyclist on

will now be begun by her heirs and
this will determine whether the city
can be held liable for a failure to en

Bees store pollen at the side of the
brood nest in the coolest part of the
hive. The honey is always stored
above the brood in the warmest part
of the hive.
The bee is almost helpless when she
issues from her cell, but in two weeks
is full grown, and able to do a full
day's work. Her first days are put in
about the hive learning housekeeping.
When bees leave their old home,
each one fills her honey sack, so as
to be provided for the journey.
There are few localities where fruit
and crops are not benefited by colo

A bright woman can, on a capital

The drone is a large, stingless bee,
with a tongue too short to gather
honey. As each queen mates but
once, consequently only one drone is
really essential to every swarm. The
workers, therefore, drive the others
out and sting them to death.
When colonies are put on the sum
