RANGE FINDING AND FIRING How the Target or the Enemy Is Lo cated and the Way the Monster Guns Are Operated—The Scene In the Con ning Tower and In the Turrets. The gray battleship seems strangely deserted and bare, for Uer decks are denuded of men, while all rails and other upstanding encumbrances hav been laid flat on deck tor big gun practice. In the conning tower, with Its twelve inch armor, stands the captain, his navigating officer, a midshipman two and several other officers and men The small circular erection, barely ten feet in diameter, seems very cramped for all it has to contain. Above the conning tower is another armored erection, containing a range finder, and inside this Is the gunnery lieutei ant, with half a dozen more officers and men. fie Is surrounded by strange looking Instruments, while man at the range Under, with J*" at its rubber eyepieces, is ujr *8 pectanf men are grouped around their monster thirteen Inch guns. The great projectiles and the cordite charges be hind them have already been pushed home by the hydraulic rammers, and, since their weapons ore thus fully load ed, the guns' crews are idle for the time being. But the gun layers—the men who aim and fire the guns—and the trainers— those who keep them pointing in the right direction—are anxiously keeping the sights on the target, and every now and then, as they move their small brass handles, there is a wheezing of hydraulic machinery, and the great breeches .rise and fall ever so slightly, while the whole armored structure con taining them revolves an inch or so at a time to keep the sights on. A minute or two later, after an order has come through from the control position, the lieutenant In charge of the foremost turret suddenly raps out the order. "Bring both guns to the ready!" The men standing by the breeches flick over their small levers. "Right gun ready! Left gun ready!" they re port in rapid succession. The range meanwhile Is decreasing rapidly, and about ten seconds later there comes the strident rattling of an electric bell. It Is the signal to open flre. The gun layer holds 1ns breath, sees the cross wires of his telescope cutting the lat ticework of the target and then presses an innocent looking brass thumb piece. As he does so there Is a roar, and, with a blaze^ of orange flame and a pall of brown smoke, a projectile weighing more than half a ton is sailing through the air on its way toward the target Outside the turret the coucussion Is terrible, but inside it is barely felt, and the only means the gun's crew have of knowing their weapon has gone off Is by the rocking of the turret and the recoil of the gun. Back she slides, with the water whistling and gurgling through the hydraulic valves far be low. She stops and then, as the run ning out springs exert their strength, is driven back to the firing position. The men meanwhile are working like demons. Some one, by moving a small lever which actuates a hydraulic engine, has opened the brooch. A cloud of acrid cordite smoke fills the turret, but another man, turning a tap, sends a jet of water spouting into the chain ber to extinguish any still burning fragments. Everything seems chaos, but every one knows what to do—ho has done It time after time—and in less than thirty seconds we bear a sharp order, "Eight gun. load!" A man moves an upright lever, and an arrangement looking like a minia ture lift climbs into view through the floor. It has come up from the shell room below laden with the new charge and projectile and stops dead In the rear of the gun. Reposing In a tray Is the shot itself. Another lever is worked, and a flexible chain hydraulic rammer, looking like a snake, darts out of its resting place and pushes the shot before It into the breech of the gun. It Is driven home with a dull thud. The rammer is withdrawn, another handle is puili-d and two enormous brown cylinders of cordite fall into the tray jtist vacated by the projectile, They, too, are rammed home, and be fore we quite realize what has hap pened the rammer and lift have disap peared, the breach of the gun has been swung home and the great weapon Is ready for firing. In the fire control position the gun nery lieutenant has seen the first shot tear a jagged hole in the target and promptly whispers an order to a man ot his side. The latter moves a small handle, and,thirty seconds later there is another discharge. In about en minutes It is all over and the ship is approaching the target to see the result of her shooting.—Lon don Answers. The Dam That Forced the Colora do Back Into Its Bed.

Out toward the end t' the embankment, steadily advancing across the path of the truant river, i group of men were struggling with fine new steel car that had becofnr derailed at the end of the temporary track. "How long have you been trying to save that car?" asked Randolph. Twelve minutes," replied the fore man. Let it go," came the order from the chief. "Twelve minutes' time on this job is worth mure than a hundred cars."
