INVENTED TO ARREST SUBMA RINE DESTROYERS. It Constats of a Hugh Shield Extending From Bow to Stern Which Fit« t'lo «e to the Hull, But Can lie Rulaed When Neee«snry. VAST amount of attention has been attracted recently in English admiral ty circles to a new device for the pro tection of big bat tleships below the water line. The new mode of hull defense Is the Idea of Dr. Herbert Jones, a naval constructor of note, and Is designed to act as a torpedo guard for the vessel below the surface of the sea. It has met. with such universal fa vor among naval architects and marine engineers that the government of Great Britain is seriously considering its adoption. The plan of Dr. Jones is simply to place a huge steel shield along the hull of the battleship on both sides. It will consist of a number of large plates in juxtaposition, extending from stem to stern, and from the keel to a point just above the water line. The plates must fit exactly to the model of the hull, so as not to retard the speed of the vessel when there is no occasion to use them. The millions of pounds sterling expended by the great powers of the world on tho offensive and defensive merits of guns versus ar mor has brought them no nearer to a solution as to the superiority in the one case or the other than they were thirty years ago, and for many years past the idea of one ship destroying an other by standing off and exchanging shots from a distance has been recog nized as an absolute impossibility, i-iord Armstrong, on this point, has well stated that these stupendous warships "cannot be made invulnerable," and that their cost is so enormous that no country can have a numerous navy of such vessels. ill ■t: :;s m !ii !! i? HIB SS 55= EIS m :*"f; gj umii nliaillfja A STEEL SHIELD FOR WAR SHIPS THAT ARRESTS TORPEDOES In a sea fight between torpedo boats and first and second-class battle ships, It Is a question with naval experts which would destroy or be destroyed. The greatest danger to battle ships would be at night, when the destroy ers, owing to their speed and handi ness, miKht get a torpedo in contact with th.8 enemy's side, when the battle ship devoid of underwater protection would inevitably be destroyed. Hence, declares a leading naval officer, "the term destroyer in its fullest and truest sense, is only applicable to the modern diving torpedo boat. As sure as one of these submarine ship destroyers, in a stale of suspension at a regulated depth below the surface of the water, is navigated to within striking distance of a 15,000-ton battle ship, so surely will the ponderous battle ship be de stroyed immediately on being struck by a missile aimed by her unseen foe. There is no give and take about this whatever, as the submarine torpedo boat, when deeply immersed, is out of reach of its opponent, while at the same time it strikes at tho most vital and unprotected part of the hull of tho monster floating above it. It is upon this very point that the marine architects and engineers of the world have been puzzling their brains for years. That is, they have taxed their inventive powers to the utmost to devise a form of protection against the scientific advance of submarine warfare. The only contrivance now in use to protect the lower portion of a ship's hull from torpedo attack is a huge netting of wire slung from booms on the side if the ship, and which is supposed to penetrate far enough be neath the surface of the water to fur nish protection for the entire bottom. This apparatus affords protection to some extent when the vessel has hove to, but when she has speed on the net is sure to drag astern and expose a large surface of the hull. Then, again, torpedoes have been invented for.the purpose of cutting through the netting, when it is found as an ob stacle. With l)r. Jones' new device the tor pedo could nol reach the hull proper, but would explode itself against the preventive hull, as the guard might be termed. That, of course* would be de molishe'd, but the hull itself would be saved from destruction. As previously stated, the shield must fit snugly to the hull. The shield consists of a num ber of wide plates, placed side by side, and hung by hinges on a long rod run ning the length of the ship, just above the water line, and extend to the keel, Above each plate is a davit securely attached to the ship's side. A tackle Is" suspended from each davit and the lower block hooks into a ring bolt Into the lower end of the plate. The falls run into the hull and connect with a windlass, so that the guard can be hoisted out by steam. When placed in position for defense, it must be hauled outboard, about twenty feet from the hull. Thus, besides the re sistance of the shield, a huge cushion of water which has been formed, aids in the protection of the ship. Captain S. Eardley Wilmot, R. N., late chief torpedo expert of the admi ralty, In his report has the following to say on the subject: "The develop ment of the Whitehead torpedo, with which now nearly all nations are sup plied, renders the question of protecting ships against this attack one of the gravest consideration. The torpedo boat of to-day travels at the rate of 30 knots an hour and carries 200 pounds of explosive compound directed against the most vulnerable part of a ship, that of her hull under water. We have been enabled by the addition of large masses of armor, to fairly pro tect the water line and above it, against the effects of artillery fire, but cannot extend this to the submerged portion of her hull as a defense against tor pedo attacks. We have, therefore, been obliged to restrict our endeavors, as far as structural arrangements are concerned, to give ships of war a double bottom, and subdividing them internally into a number of water tight compartments, thus seeking to dimin ish the effects of an explosion and re strict the inflow of water at that point. "As, however, these arrangements could only give very partial protection at a time when torpedoes carried a comparatively small charge, it was con sidered desirable to stop them before they could reach the ship, and for this purpose the present system of net de fense was devised. This consists of wire netting suspended vertically from steel or wooden booms attached to the hull of the ship, from which they pro ject from 25 to 35 feet. The nets hang down to a depth of 20 feet and are oonnected together in sections, so as to then form a continuous crinoline of netting. But should the ship move through the water, the nets are more or less impelled towards the surface, according to the speed of the ship. For these reasons naval officers do not consider that nets can be used at sea. "Thus it is evident that if external protection is to be relied upon, it must be in a different form, and Dr. Jones has devised a torpedo guard which is not only novel, but free from most of the objections inherent to the net de fense. His plan is to have steel shielis made to the form of the ship and or dinarily rasting against the hull. They are, however, capable of being pro jected outwards when required to a distance of 20 feet from the hull, and this cushion of water, together with the resistance offered by the steel plat ing, should secure a ship from ma terial injury in the event of a torpedo exploding against the guard. It is ob vious that the plate could not be cut through like a net, nor would it be forced out of position by a current, or the ships moving through the water. "An advantage of this system is that all the appliances for working this protection are above the water line and always in position, thus enabling the protection to be put in position at the shortest notice, while it overcomes the difficulty attached to supporting steel booms or rams, if projected to a distance of 20 or 30 feet. This plan now proposed by Dr. Jones is, in my opinion, the best which has yet been put forward for guarding against the terrible effects of locomotive torpedo attack, and looking to the grave issue invo.ved, I consider that expenditure would be wisely incurred in giving it a trial." A Plunt That Will Not Die. Travelers in Bermuda and the West Indies often bring back as a souvenir of their trip the leaves of an interest ing plant of the houseleek family. It is known as the life plant, and when the leaves begin to shrivel and fade they send out little shoots which in turn bears leaves that continue lo grow and remain fresh and green for months. The leaves are about four inches long, rich green in color, and of a smooth, waxen texture. If you take one of the leaves and pin it to the wall indoors, it. will begin to sprout within three or foiir days, be it winter or summer. At first the top portion of the leaf will begin to wither and shrivel up, and this is likely to continue until the upper half has lost its green edgrs, and in time, diminutive green leaves will appear on these. These little offshoots will sometimes grow to be an inch long, and contain several pairs of leaves. The limit of their ex istence seems to depend upon the amount of heat and light they can ob tain.

"I notice," remarked Mr. Corntossel, as he entered the sanctum of the rural weekly journal, according to the Wash ington Star, "thet ye make a practice o' writing up folks thet's jes' got back ter town." "Yes," replied the proprietor. "Waal, I wanter ask ye ez a special personal favor not ter interview my boy Josiar. He's comin' home fur a few days an' I don't want ye ter put nothin' 'tall in tho paper 'bout it." "Of course we won't say anything about it if you don't want us to." "I'm much obliged ter ye. I know It's askin' a good deal, but ye know a fathcr'll go a long ways ter look after the interests of an only son." "But it won't do him any harm to bo put in the paper." "It might. Did you ever hear that boy talk? He knows more about bi metallism an' finance an' taxation an' arbitration than ye'd imagine anybody could learn in a lifetime." "That's a good thing for him." "Mebbe. Rut I don't want 'im pushed too fast. I've heard that Maj. McKinley liez been having some troublo gittln' suitable men fur 'is cabinet. I'd like ter help the major out, but I don't want him ter hear 'bout Josiar, 'cause I'm honestly afraid the boy's health wouldn't stand it." How to Stop Snoring. To those who snore and are aware of the infirmity and wish to get rid of we would commend the following: There are two channels in which the air travels in going to the lungs—name ly, the nose and the mouth. These two passages unite in a common cav ity, and from that point there is but one tube leading to the lungs. There is a bone called tho hard palate which forms the roof of the mouth and the floor of the nose, separating these two air channels from each other. At the inner or posterior end of the bone is a little body called the soft palate made of muscle and covered with a delicate skin. This soft palate is at tached at one end to the hard palate; the other end hangs loose, and moves I j j i I I I ! ! j < ! j ! j ; i i 1 ! or laps in the act ot breathing, some thing like a window curtain when act ed upon by a current of air. This is its condition while we are asleep or awake, though during sleep it is much more relaxed or flabby than when we are awake. Now, in order to snore one must keep the mouth open as well as the nose, and in this condition the two currents of air passing in and out together during the act of breathing catch this little curtain between them and throw it into rapid vibration. This vibration, more or less intense and sonorous, is what we call snoring. It is only with the mouth open that snor ing can be accomplished. Try to sleep with your mouth closed, and if you can succeed in doing so you will cure yourself of a very disagreeable per formance—certainly disagreeable to others if not to yourself.

Periodical Sick Headaches, Of Interest to Women, Because In This Ca«e They Proceeded From an Ail ment Peculiar to the Sex. Irorn the Herald-Democrat, Hhron, S. D. A few years since, J. W. ICelley came to Huron, South Dakota, from Osceola, Iowa, and purchased an interest in the Huron City Mill, an immense structure, having a capacity of 200 barrels of flour per day. Soon after his arrival Mr. Kelley's family removed here and some months later they were joined by their son Elmer ar;d familv, ho having purchased an interest in tho con cern, and the Arm became known as J. \V. Keiley & Son. Since their arrival they have built up an immense trade for their patent roller flower, and ship many carloads every month to eastern and other markets. When they came to Huron, Mrs. .1. W. Keiley was in very delicate health and the change of climato and conditions seemed to benefit her. But tho relief proved only temporary, however, for after a few months residence here she lapsed into the same in firm physical condition that had been her lot for then nearly twenty years. Her ail ments were thoso peculiar to women, and which women alone can bestunderstand. In addition to these troubles Mrs. Keiley was a sufferer from acuto sick headache. This would come upon her at intervals of about two weeks, continuing for two, three or four days, much of tho time com] e ing her to keep to her bed. Because i f her affliction she was quite unable to do her housework, visit her neighbors or attend church. This worried her greatly, for she is a devout Christian and lives according to her profession. As Hev. B. H. Burtt, pastor of the Congregational Churoh, to which Mrs. Keiley belongs, said of her one evening at the close of service: "Mrs. Keiley is indeed a true mother in Israel; she is conscientious and earnest, faithful and devoted—a Christian in the truest sense of the terra." In replying to inquiries touching her case Mrs. Keiley said: "I am sixty j'ears of age, and was born in New York state, where I lived for fourteen years, then removed with my parents to Michigan, living there about the same num ber of years, then went to Iowa, remaining thero till we came here four years ago or more. 1 have been troubled with weakne-ses peculiar to my sex for the past twenty-five years. During that time my husband lias expended a large amount of money feeing physicians and buying remedies, but 1 found little relief. Physicians told me tho womb was badly disarranged and no permanent relief could be afforded till the change of life had fully taken place. In this they, like myself, were disappointed. To add to my other troubles a headache, painfnlly sickening would come upon me about every two weeks. I became quite discouraged and for a time ceased doctoring almost en tirely; I had lost faith in the science of medicine, both of the old school and new, and cared to expend no more money in that way. "About a year ago my son read In some newspaper an advertisement of Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills, and urged me to try them. I hesitated because I had tried so many patent medicines without securing the much sought and long hoped for relief. But lie insisted so strongly that I finally de cided to giro them a trial. Almost from the first 1 experienced relief, and after using the first box a changc for tlio better was so apparent that 1 took courage and continued to. use them strictly according to directions, until a short tiino since. 1 am so much better, as any one can see. that I have gradually discontinued their use. I take them now, but not regularly. 1 am a firm believer iu Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and have no hesitancy in recommending them to any who may be similarly afflicted as myself. What they have done for me they will do for others." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a condensed form, all the elements necessarv to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are an un failing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the al ter effects of la grippe, pal pitation of tho heart, pale and sallow com plexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will bo sent post paid on receipt of price, 50 cents a box, or six boxes for 12.50 (they are never sold in bulk or by the 100), by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Company.
