Scarcity of Workmen at Navy Yards.
Interruption In Important work for which
provision had been made In the allotment
of funds has occurred at the Portsmouth,
N. H., and Puget Sound navy yards, because
of the groat difficulty or obtaining
i competent workmen. Such a state of afj
fairs has not been known before. At Portsj
mouth work has been stopped on the new
| seagoing tug In favor of more urgent re!
pair work, and at the Paget Sound yard
W'jrk was suspended on the Oregon and the
| Wisconsin so that the Nebraska might be
j ready for service and repairs needed on
the Chicago and Charleston first completed.
Tho Saratoga to Be Sold.
The old warship Saratoga is to be sold at
auction. The vessel has been in use as a
nautical training ship by the state of Pennsylvania
for several years, and has been
returned to the commandant of the League
Island navy yard. Pa., for flnal disposition.
Changes at the Naval Academy.
It Is understood that the combined department
of mathematics and mechanics
recommended by what la known as the
Walnwright board, as the result of Its recent
investigation of the curriculum at the
Naval Academy, will be in charge of Professor
of Mathematics Stlmson J. Brown.
Since Capt. C. J. Badger assumed the duties
of superintendent of the academy,
about two weeks a#o, he has made a speniol

board. The Navy Department approved
most of the recommendations made,
but It is understood that Capt. Badger
urges that only a few of tho changes,
which had been approved, be made, including
the consolidation of mathematics and
Appointment of Midshipmen.
Following the graduation of the first class
at the Naval Academy next June there will
be about three hundred vacancies in the po.
sltion of midshipmen, -which nvust be tilled
by appointments between now and March 4
next. The vacancies include those caused
by failures In the examinations, resignations,
discharges, etc. There are to be two
examinations for admission to the academy,
the first being held in various cities and
towns throughout the country the third
Tuesday in April under the auspices of the
civil service commission, and the second
the third Tuesday of June at the Naval
New Cooking and Baking School.
A cooking and baking school for the navy
Is to be established at the naval training
station, Newport, R. I., In charge of Paymaster
EJugene F. Hall. The plan approved
contemplates sending to the school those
cooks and bakers who re-enlist, the purpose
ultimately being to have cooks, bakers and
commissary stewards hold diplomas of the
school. The course Is to include instructions
in cooking and baking, with the practical
work altorded by the conduct of the
large general mess at the naval training
Soldiers Commended for Gallantry.
Certificates of merit have been awarded
by the War Department to Quartermaster

Military Discharges by Purchase.
In view of the difficulty experienced by
the military authorities In obtaining neces
mviiy rocruiis wr ia? uriuy iuciv is <t kiu"" j
lng belief In various quarters that the dls- j
charge-by-purchase system should be abolished.
When recruits were more easily obtainable
the practice of releasing men from <
the service before the expiration of their
enlistment contract caused no serious embarrassment.
But even then discharge by
purchaae was a costly thing, in that it gave !
the government no return for the time and ,
money spent In training the man for the
duties of th? soldier. For the first six 1
month* the new recruit is of little real i
military value; yet the expense of his training
and maintenance has to be paid, the .
expectation being that after becoming proficient
In his duties he will remain In the 1
service until he has served the full period i
of his enlistment. The money he pays for
a discharge before tiie expiration of his
term is no adequate return for what the '
government has disbursed on h!s account,
ami, it is contended, the abolition of the
practice would be in the interest not only ,
Of economy, but of military efficiency.
A High Tribute to Bluejackets.
Rear Admiral William T. Swinburne,
commanding the second squadron of the J
Pacific fleet, has written an article on "The
Navy and the Man," in which he says: "The i
standard of efficiency among our men is
vastly higher than it was a few years ago.
We have Just come from fleet target prac- '
tice at Magdalena bay. There each man is 1
trained to act with other men as in actual :
wiir He is trained exaetlv how to do each i
tiling, and must perform his duty in the ]
safest, swiftest and most intelligent man- ]
ner, without any individuality, acting as a 1
part of a machine. The moment lie at- 1
tempts to put individuality into what he '
does hts usefulness is gone. He must obey j
orders exactly, without personal bias whatsoever.
This magnificent disclplino obtains
in ail parts of the ahlp the year round. It ]
becomes second nature to th? men. Our j
sailors represent the highest type of physical
manhood'. To begin with, they are a'.l
American citizens; none others are now
permitted to enlist. That rule Is strict.
Physically the men are unsurpassed. Reports
show that often 70 to SO per cent of
the applications to enlist are rejected. In
fact, the class of men now In our fleet is
beyond question the very pick and flower
of our nation's young manhood. After all
it is discipline that d<>e3 young men good.
Prompt, unwearying response, hearty support
of orders, make for efficient lighting
force. Discipline in our navy was never
hieher. results never more happy than at
present. We have not only the finest young
men, but the best trained, sagacious, intelligent
and patriotic class of sailors the world
has ever seen."
A Military Rolling Oven.
There has been received at Washington
barracks from Europe a military rolling
oven, such as is us^d in the British army.
Arrangements are being made to take tins
wagon out on a practice inarch at the first
opportunity. The experts who have looked
at the vehicle say it Is altogether too heavy
for military us?, but it is hoped by testing
it to deveiop a vehicle which will answer
i lit? purpose in mis tuunuj. * ??*= 1 1
the vehicle is to bake bread on the road,so
Hint when troops go into camp they
will lind fresh bread awaiting them. In
some countries it could not be us;'d, and
lt^ is hardly likely to b? employed where
tlie marches are long or sudden. Moreover,
there is disinclination In the army
to add to the rolling stock, which lias a
tendency to Impede the movement of the
army In the field.
Safe Paint for Warships.
The plan of reducing the danger of fire
on board ships of war is now the subject of
some Important tests which are being conducted
at the navy yards, it has been
suggested by some naval officers that painl
used on shipboard would communicate fire
and an effort Is to be made to obtain s
paint which is not inflammable. The ord
nance officers believe that In time of wai
the contact of a shell with the side of f
ship might possibly cause ignition when nc
other damage was wrought, and that bj
means of the paint with which the struetun
is covered. The ordnance officers at th?
naval proving grounds at Indian Head. Md.
will have erected a structure which resembles
the side of a ship and covered wit!
sucn pamt as is used in tne service, ttj
that means it is expected to determine to
practical tests and In a definite way th<
extent to which there is danger from fin
on account of the Inflammability of paint.
All Soldiers Must Practice.
In a general order to the army, Gen
Duval), acting chief of staff, says that. on<
object of target practice being to dissemi
nate among the people the kn?wledg<
taught as far as practicable, and It beinf
therefore desirable that all men leavint
the company shall have received some in
struction, all enlisted men of the line pres
ent at the post during any part of thi
practice season will, if practicable, take th<
prescribed course of ritie practice so far a:
the period of their service permits.
Fine Record With Big Guns.
The 7th Company of the Coast Artillerj
Corps, under command of Capt. Will'.anr
F. Hase, on duty at Fort Banks, Mass.
recently made a remarkable record In tar
Set practice at Fort Heath, a subpost o:
Fort Banks, which is claimed to beat al
the records In this country. The gunner!
fired A^-inch disappearing guns so rapidlj
and so accurately that they made six hits
out of six shots In 3 minutes and 40 seconds
on a target yards away, towed al
the rate of five miles an hour. That is s
net rate, as gunners estimate It, of 9.1]
hits per gun per minute. The guns used s

pounds of smokeless powder mixed. Th<
former record was six hits In 4 minutes

Special DIapatch to The Star.
HYATTSVILLB, July 27.?The Hyattsvllle
and Berwyn base ball clubs of the
3uburban League engaged in a slugging
match here this afternoon, the former getting
the better of the argument by the
K-ore of 9 to 7. In the first inning Hurley,
Hyattsville's second baseman, tripped over
the bag In attempting to execute a double
play and badly sprained his hand, but
pluckiiy stuck to his work. In the next
Inning he tripped over the first bag In
running to the base and was knocked out
for a few moments. In their half of
the first inning Hyattsvllle Jumped on
Richmond and batted out five runs. Murray,
Hyattsville's pitcher, clouted one In the
woods in right field for a home run.
The Berwyn players objected to several
?f I'mpire Merson's decisions, but he umpired
an Impartial game. Eddie Brown
relieved Richmond in the fourth Inning,
and Hyattsvllle stopped scoring. The game
was witnessed by a large crowd that
thoroughly enjoyed the slugging bee.

the tickets in the conductor's hands. Ro
Then the dumpy young man looked with inJ
elaborate Interest at the scenery on their ! wa

the young women. h'a

"Why, I'm Just as Umber as when I was
a girl. I can run up the steps same as
ever, and I always sit on the floor to put oil H
my shoes and stockings." M
"Well, all I got to say," responded the H
grampus, "you ought to go down on your f|
marrow bones In thankfulness, for you are 13;
