mates for the material and labor re
quired to place the range in condition
for the target season, as well as the
selection of the range, location of the
different firing points, etc.
“The old time conditions are severed,
and the regiment will lose not only its
military identification but also its
effectiveness unless the mass is leaven
ed by the assignment of veterans. The
Second Artillery wi’l shortly be a regi
ment of unacclimated recruits and tin
officers be transferred into drill ser
geants. If the reasons of location or
climate are advanced as a cause why
target practice cannot be had here, it is
submitted that such be required to be
had at Columbus Barracks or some re
cruiting station of concentration before
sending recruits to this department.
“The majority of the men now in
ranks do not know the number of their
squad or who is in charge of it; do not
know the condition of their clothing
accounts; do not know what the sol
dier’s handbook imparts; do not know I
the component parts of the ration; do
not know how properly to take care of
their own equipments; are not imbued
with the spirit of military traditions,
and do not know the extent of their
own ignorance upon matters consid
ered elementary a year ago. The men
are willing enough, but being willing
is hardly being ready.”
Colonel Reade recommends that offi
cers of the Medical COrps and com
manders be enjoined to not confine the
education of recruits to drilling under
arms. Existing orders require that in
struction in some of the details of san
itation and self-care be Imparted to all
enlisted men of the army by their com
pany commanders for at least four
hours each month.
The colonel tells of a visit he had
from a wealthy Cuban who wanted to
pay SIOO for admission to American
citizenship and for putting his way
ward son into a reformatory. The
money was to be divided between Col
onel Reade and a Cuban who intro
duced the applicant. Stories of similar
experiences are told by other officers.
Licut.-Col. William Black, Captain
Grebe! and Colonel Bliss state that
bribes are not uncommon.

of the customhouse employes was no

chant importers try to “touch” him.
Colonel Reade found it a study in
color to inspect a regiment clad in
khaki. When original packages were
opened shades of brown, sepia, snufE,
noa green, even canary green, are
noted. When donned by the men the
sunlight either deepened or lightened
these shades, and new tints were dis
covered. After washing, the khaki
suit he declares,.becomes more uniform
in color. “I asked an officer,” he says,
“what in his opinion, was the chief
recommendation of the -khaki. He re
plied that khaki had the iberit desired
by tho boarding house mistress in pur
chasing plates, ‘any color that wouldn’t
show dirt’
“One trouble is that what is called
khaki is not khaki. The cotton drill
ing used by the contractors about a
year ago on emergency orders from the
government in making what were
called khaki suits varies as to texture,
color, weight, etc. The garments ad
mirably served their purpose, and in
the Province of Santiago and alnO Tam
ils were welcome substitutes for kersey
trousers and for lined flannel blouses
previously worn by our soldiers in
Northern latitudes. The minor details
now criticised were then unimportant
There are several shades of colors in
the campaign hats issued by the quar
termaster’s department and worn by
the Second Artillery. Some are gray,
some are drab, some are almost purple.
All should have beneath the sweatband
an inner band of corrugated stiff
material, thus admitting of ventilation.
None are so provided, and the men
mutilate their hats by slitting the sides
to insure ventilation.
Havana, according to Colonel Reale ,
Is congested with former soldier? no
longer under military control. There
are two classes of these ex-soldiers -
first, honorably discharged men who
have applied for and received their dis
charge under the condition of their en
listment, but who have not applied for
transportation back to the United
States; second dishonorably discharged
men. Both classes are improvident,
and their condition Is distressing. In
their desperation they hold indignation
meetings and regard every decent rep
resentative of military or civil author
ity as a natural enemy. There is but
one step from this condition, be says,
to communism and crime.

Wonderful Development Since Discov
ery 100 Years Ago.
More than one hundred years ago
Baron Humboldt discovered the dahlia,
a small, single flower, in Mexico. Could
some prophetic vision have revealed to
him the dahlia of today in its dazzling
hues and varied forms he might, per
haps, have been prouder of that dis
covery than of all his other scientific
achievements. It was sent by him to
the botanical gardens in Madrid, where
it received the name of dahlia in honor
of the botanist, Professor Andrew
The same year it was Introduced Into
England, where it was cultivated under
glass. For a few years it was lost to
cultivation, then reintroduced into
England. Cultivation soon developed
the double form, and every color ex
cept blue. For many years the Ideal
dahlia of the cultivators was a perfect
ly double, bell-shaped flower. Those
who remember the compact flower of
thirty or forty years ago know how
nearly that Ideal was realized, and re
member the deserved popularity of the
dahlia of that day. But people soon
tired of the regularity of that type, and
for a few years it was neglected.
Florists were giving time, labor and
thought to the development of the
carnation, chrysanthemum and other
popular flowers.
At last some far-seing cultivator
recognized the possibilities of the
dahlia, and in new, improved and more
beautiful shades of color it resumes
its sway, and today greets us in so
many varied and attractive forms that
every taste may be suited. —London

The most famous bandit ever known
on the Santa Fe trail was Espinosa, a
Spaniard, who at one time had great
wealth and lived in a hacienda on the
banks of the Rio Grande, near Santa
Fe, like one of the dukes of his native
country, says the Chicago Record. He
claimed descent from a knight in the
army of Cortez, and the walls of his
house were ornamented by ancestral
portraits painted by famous artists of
Spain. He had immense herds of sheep
and cattle, and upon his dukedom ruled
over several hundred peons, who re
garded him as a king.
After the American occupation of-
New Mexico Espinosa fell into bad
company. The newcomers taught
him new games and played him un
friendly tricks. They trespassed upor.
his hospitality. They invaded his
hacienda, lived in luxury at his ex-
pense, drank his wine and ate his mut
ton and then won his money at cards
He lost so much that he became finan
cially embarrassed and was compelled
to mortgage his herds. It was a
great mortification to the proud Span
iard, and when it was too late he be
gan to realize that he had been im
posed upon.
One day he made the acquaintance of
a rich young New Englander, who had
come to Santa Fe with a lot of money
to engage in business. The Yankee
visited the hacienda, and soon made
himself at home there. It was said
that He was in love with Donna Es
pinosa, a beautiful girl about 18 years
of age, and that his affection was re
ciprocated. At one time when Espl-
nosa was pressed for money the young
Yankee received a large remittance
from the East. He offered it to the
Spaniard, but the latter was too proud
to accept a loan from his sister’s
lover. The same night, however,
after he had retired, the young man
heard a burglar in his room, and in the
struggle learned that the intruder was
no other than his host. Being dis
covered Espinosa drew a dagger and
plunged it into the American’s heart.
The members of the household came
rushing into the room Just as the
victim was dying. He told >h em what

Reasons F jr* Paper Flaps on Screen
If you want to know in what part of
Chicago you .are, look at the screen
door of the nearest grocery or drug
store or notion shop. If there' is a
fantastic adornment of paper on the
door, you are, in all probability, on the
South side, and south of Thirty-ninth
streets For the South Siders are in
dulging In a luxury that does not seem
to be known to any great extent on
the North or West sides.
This ornament on the screen doors
is made of nil sorts of paper, but It
is generally light in color and of the
same general >hape. It looks as if the
storekeeper laid taken a sheet of wrap
ping paper, folded it in the middle,
and cut into;it at intervals of an Inch
or so, nearly to the fold. And that is
exactly wh;i he has done. Then he
runs a strisg through the paper just
below the fold ard fastens it across
the door so that the flaps hang down
straight. If he is frugal, one row of
flaps satisfies him. If ho isn’t, he has
two and may have three.
If there is a draught through the
store the paper wiggles and flaps all
day long. The first one made Its ap
pearance at Forty-seventh street and
IndianaJavenue early last week. Now
they are as common as screen doors.
An inquisitive citizen who could not
figure out what on earth this fantas
tic decoration was for nearly went
crazy when they increased in number.
He was curious over the first one he
saw. Presently he noticed another.
Then he began watching for them and
counting. Soon he began to dream
about them. Then he asked his friends
what they were for. Nobody knew.
At lajst he could stand it no longer.
He walked Into a restaurant at For
ty-seventh street and Lake avenue.
“I know I’m ignorant, and I sup
pose it’s none of my business—Hut
whaf are those paper flaps on the
screen door for?” he asked of a pretty
waiter girl.
"Flics,” said the girl, with an ex
pression of wonder on her face.
“How —why—what?” gasped the In
quisitive citizen.
“Why,” said the girl, wearily, “they
flaii in the draught and scare the flies
awiy from the door, so that when any
on* opens it they ain’t there to fly
in See?”—The Spokesman’s Review.

His Experience Asa Soldier In the
Civil War.
In an editorial on the death of Col.
Robert G. Ingersoll, the Greenville (S.
C.) News says:
“When the war broke out his patriot
ism landed him into the colonelcy of
the Eleventh Illinois cavalry. His
regiment got down into Tennessee, in
General Forest’s tramping ground.
His command was sent out on picket
duty at a cross-roads where there were
no Confederates, so far as Colonel In
gersoll knew, and he held the position
with great skill until Forest had some
use for that special road. He was sur
rounded or cut off, or something else
happened, for he suddenly found him
self and his troops marching rapidly
to Forest's headquarters under charge
of a few squadrons of Confederate
cavalry, under command of a mere
youth, who wore the single star of a
major. The genial humor of Inger
soil was shown when he reached the
headquarters of the Confederate
troops. When asked who was in com
mand of the Union troops, Ingersoll
said that he didn't know.
“ ‘You’re a queer officer not to know
who is In command of your forces,’
said the Confederate general.
“‘I was in command an hour ago,’
was the reply, ‘but blamed if I know
who Is now.’
“This incident satisfied the military
ambition of Colonel Ingersoll and he
quit' the servicA,”

The natives of India are keen sports
men, in that they enjoy wagering on
the element of chance, and In Bengal
a favorite sport is ram-fighting. A
likely male lamb !s chosen, when quite
young, and his training often extends
over 18 months to two years. The first
operation is to make him grow suitable
horns. To attain this end, when his
first horns appear the owner grasps
them In his teeth and tears them out
of their sockets. This operation has
to be repeated upon subsequent
growths two or three times. Then
the young champion develops a really
massive pair, very broad at the base.
He Is always chained, presumably to
make him pugnacious. When h!s
horns are sufficiently tough he Is
taught butting. His trainer dons a
wooden shield, and the ram Is taught
to butt It, at first with only a short
run. But as he takes to his training
he backs further and further from the
object, until the legitimate distance *s
arrived at. By this time he has begun
to put such force Into his butts that It
takes two men to hold the shield, and a
good ram will upset them at every
<harge. When he is fit he is taken to
a match. The trainers then straddle
their animals, grasping them hy the
home, and bring them Into the arena
facing each other about 40 feet apart.
The word Is given, the trainers slip the
animals, and the rams precipitate
themselves forward at lightning speed,
heads down, quarters un. They meet
with a thundering crash, the horns
and skulls clanging as If they were
metal. The animals then Rack of their
own accord, and close again, with the
same awful Impetuosity. Again and
again they close, until one of the two
refuses to face the music. Then the
victor chases him from the arena.—

Tea and Pop Debauches Have Before
Now Resulted Fatally.
Hard drinks have slain their thou
sands, but soft drinks have, neverthe
less, contributed to the list of fatali
ties. Instances In proof of the danger
which lies in wait for the unwary ab
sorber of the latter class of potations
are not wanting In recent revelations
of the news columns.
Not long ago a man departed this
life in an eastern asylum because he
was Inordinately intemperate In the
use of tea. An incautious colored man
in Atlanta took :ik sip or two of a do
mestic concoction.of alum and water.
Shortly afterwar# he took a fit and
gave up the ghost in great a„'ony.
A more recent case Is that of the
New York young man who did after
a “pop” debauch. What small boy is
a stranger to the many-hued’delights
of “pop’ ? It effervesces and tastes
like branch water Inadequately sweet
ened, but It has bubbled for long years
without being suspected of homicidal
tendencies. Until the fatal orgy of
the New York young man Its record
for harrnlessness was unbroken. Tb s
victim of the insidious “pop.’’ It Is
claimed, filled his internal vacuum
with seventy bottles nr the dangerous
fluid per day. And he kept on loading
up at this rate for three days in suc
cession! Of course when such a strain
as this was put upon his containing
capacity something had to pop; and
so ‘the “pop” drove the life out of him
and he went hence. Such Ih the fate
of those who have not the strength of
mind to defy the tempter when he
comes clad in the seductiveness of soft

Innocuous beverages subject the hu

"When lions become maneaters
these inert and treacherous brutes

It Grows in Persia and Blooms On'y
at Night.
There is a tree in Persia to which
the name “the sorrowful tree” is given.
Perhaps because it blossoms only in
the evening, says the Savannah News.
When the first star appears in the
heavens, the first, bud of the sorrowful
tree opens, and as the shades of night
advance and the stars thickly stud the
sky, the buds continue gradually open
ing until the whole tree looks like one
immense white flower. On the ap
proach of dawn, when the brilliancy of
the stars gradually fades in the light
of day, the sorrowful tree closes Its
flowers, and ere the sun is fully risen,
rot a single blossom is visible. A
sheet of flower dust, as white as snow,
covers the ground around the foot of
the tree, which seems blighted and
withered during the day, while, how
ever, it is actively preparing for the
next nocturnal festival. The fragrance
of the blossoms is like that of the
evening primrose. If the tree Is cut
down close to the roots, anew plant
shoots up and attains maturity In an
incredibly short time. In the vicinity
of ihls singular tree there usually
grows another, which Is almost an ex
act counterpart of the sorrowful tree,
hut less beautiful, and strange to say,
it blooms only In the day time.
