BULLET-PROOF SUIT OF OLD TYPE SHOWN Armor Worn by Noted Bushranger Exhibited Aboard Convict Ship at Seventh Street Wharf. Use of the modem bullet-proof vest finds its prototype in the suit of iron armor used by Ned Kelly, notorious Australian bushranger of the early part of the last century and now on exhi bition on the convict ship Success at the Seventh street wharf. Kelly, with a reward of SIO,OOO on his head and more than 200 police on his trail, fashioned this ingenious armor out of scrap iron and wore it while battling with the representatives of the law. It weighs 92 pounds and forms a decided burden for the average man. Protecting his chest, head and stom ach, Kelly neglected to provide protec tion for his arms and legs, and it was by shooting him In the legs that the police finally effected his capture, but it was estimated that his capture and that of his gang cost the British gov ernment about $600,000. All sorts of Instruments of torture, used to discipline the convicts of that day and time and illustrating more than a dozen books the difference in prison methods of olden times and now, are to be seen on the convict ship, which, according to Capt. D. H. Smith, its owner, is visiting Washington for the last time.
