two -uhmarines. One of these, I.ieu
tenanl Weddigen'i famous U-P, was of
tl ?? old type. The other was one <f the
latest type and had ju-t been put into
COmmiaafon. This Iatttr style of sub?
marine is able to keep to the sea about
a long as the crew can stand the
strain. The problem of rescue in the
of accident is solved by buoys
fore and aft to which chains can be at?
tached, and a smaller buoy carrying a
telephone and an electric light. A
complete system of watertight com?
partments give the crew a chance of
life even when ?-juite a hole has been
opened in the shell.
The torpedo works have been almost

Hi i i m. Nov. II. According to in?
formation derived from semi-official
Manes, Germany will be able for some
time to come to supply its own Mods
for copper from its mines at Mansfeld,
Eisleben and Hettetadt, in Saxoay,
Westphalia and the Hartz Mountains.
All the mines m these places are being
worked night and day.
Geraum copper production annually
amounts to l.'i.MM) metric tons, of which
nine-tenths come from the MansfeM
mines. In times of peace Germany is
the greatest copper consumer *1n
