Asbury Park, N. J., Sept. 19.?The continued run of fair weather finds Asbury Park entertaining the greatest September crowd in its history. Hotel proprietors who had the temerity t>; keep their houses open through the north arc being rewarded beyond their fondest hopes. Out-of-door sports have been at their best here, and although the last group of bathing houses closed ???i Tuesday, surf bathing *?nthusiasts ???n don their suits in the natatorium und enjoy thnr ocean bath the same as 1:1 the summer. Owing to the number of tennis play ? is in and about Asbury Park who wish tj enjoy their favorite pastime K. A. Harvey, manager of the Auditorium tennis courts, anhounces that he will keep the courts open for play until the lirst of October. Mr. Harvey is com? pleting arrangements to build threo new courts on the ocean Iront block ..iid will have them ready for play by Memorial Day next year. The Audi? torium courts have been the rendezvous ?>f many prominent piayers recently. Among them voie Secretary Tumulty, M.8S Besler, the Misses Madero and (?reenstreet. who was the runner-up tor the English team in 191S, and Low en.-tein, who plays Williams for the American championship next spring. Asbury Park is to have the best train ?et vice during the fall and winter t':at it hHs ever enjoyed if plans fos? tered by President of Council Joseph M. Turner are earned out. Mr. Tur? ner suggested that Asbury Park co? operate with other points along the coast in a request that the Tennsyl \ania ami Central railroads install a l'.bcra! rhedulc for the fall and win? ter months. The attitude upon the part of the .?adinK hotels to remain open longer than ever before was the incentive of Mr. Turner's sug(-cs:ion to Council. A meeting of the stockholders and directors of the New Monterey Hotel was held on Tuesday and, according to the report furnished as to the amount of business done, it was shown that the last season was the most success? ful since the hotel was built. The most interesting feature of the meet? ing was the announcement that T. F. Merseles bad been unanimously elected a director of the Asbury Park Hotel and Realty Company, owner of the New Monterey Hotel. Mr. Merstles is vice president of the National Cloak and Suit Company, of New York. According to a persistent tumor cur? rent here, Asbury Park is to have a new all-year hotel within the next six months. The rumor states that the , Grand Avenu??

Atlantic City, N. J., Sept. 19. Out? side fishing has begun, aetd the late ! summerjte by the sea has given up "in | side" or bay fishing, and now ventures ! forth upon tjie wide reaches ??f the open sea in search of the ?iiiny deni? zens of the deep. The big fellows, the tide runners of the weaktish tribe, are taking the bait voraciously these mid-September days, and are heedless of the brand. A throat latch, cut from the throat of some earlier captured fellow fish, makes one of the best baits. Soft shelled vc "shedder" crabs are good. They will : bite at a bit of old red rag, at almost anything, so hungry and rapacious have these great weak.ish become with | the waning of the hot ?lays. Four, live and six pounders are the prizes now in "weakie" fishing, and the best fishing is had at points from three ! to six miles off shore. The skippers of the Inlet and Longport fleets upon reaching the "fishing banks" permit their sails to hang idly ?n the ?vind, while the boats drift and float with the easy, rolling swell of the sea. Patting through a school of weaktish in th s slow manner, at times the vititing Rah ermen and tisherwomen aboard are kept busy pulling the struggling weaktish from the water to the boat. And when it is understood that .a tive-pound weaktish is "some fish" in , the vernacular of the fleets, it will tie readily understood that the mitl-Sep tember tourists by the sea are having ' the best of the fishing season. The cool winds that blew over the 1 resort early in the werk spoiled the ' bathing last Sunday, but the tempera? ture becoming wanner overhead the sport was later resumed. "The water isn't right for bathing until Septem? ber" is a favorite expression among veteran bathers, and the wise ones claim there is great truth in it. During the spring and summer the water is being warmed up, these old timers say. and with the advent of Sep? tember the ocean has stored up the heat of the entire rammer. Hut notwithstanding the pleasant sensation when in the water, the chill of the early September air has driven many from the strand. The cool spell, however, according to the ancient taita ! and ex-set cap'ns at the Inlet, is but an incident, with plenty of good, hot summer weather yet in store for At? lantic City. Atlantic City has at last been Chau tauqua-ized, or Chautauqua-ated, whichever is the proper term.

'leatli, which occurred recent of Dr. Mauser, tha inventor of the 1 mous rifle now used by the German i fantry, has brought home to the publ how comparatively recent is the histo of the modern gun. II. II. Harrod, who has collected fir arms for several years, has now his possession a remarkable series guns ami pistola dating from 1"U0 the present time. It it believed to the most representative collection this country, ant! numb? ? some 'hi p.eeea of all countries. II?. has thot ' them to a representative of "TI j Times," to whom he gave the lullo? ing aicscnption: "The earliest of these weapons the French flintlock breech-loudir musket, which has a sliding burr lock?.?I back to the breech chamber 1: , a conical screw. It is doubtfi whether this gun was ever adopte by any government. It it intereitin as being an early example of th breech-loading arm. At this time a the nations of the world had ju: adopted the flintlock, muzzle-loadin smooth-bore musket, which replace the matchlock, a type which had sui ; vived from the invention of portabl firearms. The flintlock musket hel ! its ground from about the begmnin j of the 18th century until the accessio of Queen Victoria. At that time th [ British army was armed w th a weapo practically identical with that whic it had carried in the reign of Quee Anne, the only difference being th t substitution of a steel ramrod for wooden one, and the fact that on regiment, the Hide P.ngade, was arme with a flintlock rifle which had beei adopted in 1*00. "During the eighteent! century wi find various sporadic and mostly un buccetsful attempts to pro isfactory iintloek breech loader. O these eight or nine are represented 11 tin collect'on. The beat known am probably thi mosl successful was th? Ferguson rille (, 1776), :.o called fron the name of it! un.' ?tor. Major Fer guson, who led loyal i t levies in th? j Ai erican War of Independence an? fell ti the battle of King's. Mountair in 1780.

Prince Regent, afterward George IV. It. has a g barrel. Early Rreech Loader??. It was not unt.l 1816 ih.it any form of breech loader was regularly adopt? ed by any government, and in that year the Hall flintloc'i breech loading rifle ?vas adapted by the American go* rent ment and issued to the troons in large numbers. It ha i lifting chamber hinged at Itt rear end Thit aim ?vas afterwar?! converted to i parca lock, and as such did good service as late as the American Civil War. In lKlfl EL II. Collier, an American who had not met with much encouragement in his own country, took aiut an Eng? lish patent for a flintlock revolving arm, a specimen of which is in the Col? lection. This is probably the first practical solution of the revolving principle, though we l;nd matchlock re? volvers of an earlier period. This arm had ? revolving breech piece which Wat revolved by hind, and when in the Pring position the mouth of the cham li r closed over the breech end of the barrel, so as to prevent a:iy escape of gas. There was an arrangement for automatic priming. In I*?)? Alexander John Forsyth, an Aberdeenthirt clergyman, inventad the percussion tyttem. At the outset this was merely one in which the gun was primed with detonating powder car- \ ried in a magazine attached to the gun and dropped little by little into the pan. where it was ignited by the blow of a striker. More than one system was patented on this principia?, and1 two of them, that of Westley-Richarda j u> 1&Z1 aud Joseph Egg? in U02. ara represented in tha collection. Th? next improvement was placing the de tonating powder in a pellet or littli tube, which was placed in a pan am ignited by the blow of a hammer. Th? best known of these systems is that o: Joseph Mant?n (1818) and the Austria* goyorument system, known as Z?nde: Sehloss lock. Specimens of both ol these are in th? collection. The tub? system was applied to two or thre< early breech -loaders, notably tho Paul] system, patented in England in 1816 and tha Fusil Robert, patented in Eng land in 1831. Both these guns are in? teresting as being the first instancei in which the means of itnltion war placed in the gun with the cartridge The Pauly is really the first central fire gun and its appearance is peculiar !y modem. The date of the invention of thi percussion cap proper is a little un certain, but appears to be about 1816 It was never patented, an 1 the honori of its invention have been disputed. II seems, however, to have been a case ol ?: niilt?neoun discovery by Joseph Egf in England and an American inventor The percussion system was not adopted by the British government until th? thirties of the last century, when the Brunswick two-grooved percussion lock rifle was issued to the Rifle Brig? ade in place of the Baker flintlock rifle. The rearming of the troops was then proceeded with, but was not com? plete in England until 1846. Th? forces of the East India Company ap? pear to have been rearmed rather earlier, and the percussion lock musket must have given our soldiers a decided advantage in the Sikh wars, the Sikhs having only flintlocks and matchlocks. The Gun of the Mutiny. The smooth-bore percussion-lock musket, of which various specimens are found ii. this collection, remained in use until the outbreak of the Cri? mean War. It wan then replaced by the Mini? three-grooved rifle, firing a ?nuirai ball, which in its turn was supplanted by the muzzle-loading En tifid rifle. The fact that the cart? ridges for this rifle were greased war. one of the pretexts for the Indian Mutiny. During this period (1820-'60) the breechloader begins to come more and more into notice. In 1827 the Ger? man Dreysc invented the needle gun. This was a breech-loading arm with a bolt .action, in which the cap was ex? ploded by '.he penetration or a sharp pointed needle. This arm was adopted by the Prussian . government in 1840. Its leading defects were the fragil?* nalure of the needle and the constant Lack fire caused by the absence of a nu-lai cartridge case. At the same time numberless patents were taken out, both here, on the Continent and in America, for a breech-loading arm to be discharged hy a separata cap put on a nipple in the ordinary way. More than seventy tyjies of this class are represented in the* collection. One of these. Sharp* rifle, was adopted by Loth the English and Americ-n gov? ernments, and another, the Westiey Richard: carbine, was largely issued to British cavalry. The outbreak ol the American Civil War in 18*il gayi a violent impetus to transatlantic invention, and at different tin-?? no fewer tfjan nineteen different typet of breech-loader and repeater | were purchased by the American gov-1 ernment. All of them are to be seen in the collection. A different type of arm to each, which hat been referred ' to lit the cate of the Collier revolving j gun, appeared in 1818. In the early 30a Samuel Colt had patented hit re- | volvlng pistol, which he toon afterward followed by a revolving rifle. These ? arms, ot course, had a percussion lock. They were largely adopted in America, gad toon showed their vtlut in tht ; Semin?le wtr and in the Texan and , Mexican troublea. Colt took out aa English patent in 183S. Hit first rifle I wat a very peculiar arm. at may be ! teen from the specimen in the collec-1 tion. About this time a number of! other revolving systems were patented j in America and elsewhere, one of the , most extraordinary being the Porter i system of 1851. Here the cylinder re- ; volved like a wheel, the chambers being*' set in it like the spokes of a wheel. The last we hear of this weaDon is the re- j port that It shot it? own inventor. A most extraordinary repeating arm j was patented in 1*55 in England. This is known as the Treeby chain gun. It ' might be taken to be an ancestor of the ' Maxim. In this an endless band of chambers, sometimes as many aa one hundred, was worked through the breech by cocking the hammer, em h chamber carrying its own nipple and being separately loaded and capped. As a chamber came into the firing po? sition the barrel could be screwed back over the mouth of the chamber to pre? vent, escape of gas. This practically closes the history of capping arms, i. e.. arms breech-load? ing or muzzle-loading which required the separate percussion rap. In later types the cap is a part of the cartridge. These include the needle fire, to which reference has been made, the pin tire, the rim Are and the central fire. All modern armies are, of course, equipped with the central tire magazine rifle. - London Times. THE YO?N?TrULER OF A TINY STATE I Luxemburg's Girlish Sovereign Wholly Absorbed in Her Duty to Her Realm. Wedged between France, Prussia ' and Belgium, it was inevitable that the ? miniature state of Luxemburg, al 1 though neutral, should have been af . fected by the great Europen conflict. ?
