MILITARY TRAINING.
Drilling the Conscripts hi rlio Ttc'l-'n
.*i rre r.
?
Military drill, for the r-ir.^rle reason i
thrjt it demands a,eerefcral tar.sibn'as j
intense as study does, is to be pro- .
scribed. In ph; -hai edneation. in
order to remedy the fatigue of the j
brs.'n. wc eachc to abolish all studied
movements of military *rymnastics. i
v.-hi el 1 demand regularity of rhythm or
t!ie immobility of the soldier. Any
oc.r? who !;as been ;..:-c?>.m*i .-.t i);<* tlrill
icg of conscripts must have noticed
that uat*-h:-i?" of tije time is passed
standing in listenin?r to the ex?
planation of the exercises, and the
other half is passed on the stretch to
follow abrr.pt movements, which arc
contrary to natureand which shake the
human frame without helping the
health. Military exercises are the
triumph an-1 perfection of immobility.
Even-the tips of the yam bajrreis must
not vacillate in the ranks, thougli the
movement of uncomsti*ained breathing
is sufficient to cause a wavering.
The United Mates is tiie only coun?
try where the experiment of obligatory
target practice has been made. In
1700 a law was enacted by which all
persons of eighteen .years ana more,
available for military service, should
be trained in arr.13. and no one coital
vote without having a paper certifying
be bad undergbne the drill, lh.it in
America also this requirement fell in?
to disuse. Only aftext the war of l*>'<?
was there another momentary; awak?
ing of tho military spirit, and now the
conditions of America in tlsis respect
are like those of Italy and Ennepe.
Target-shooting still holds its own in
Switzerland for local reasons, due to
tho natural formation of the country.
Hunting is kept alive there by its
mountains and forests while the le?
g-ends of 1 he nation make the marks?
man most honorable among his fel?
lows. Not a festival is held there but
all fiofk to it from the surrounding
country, to shoot at tae target, and the
victors are crowned with wreathes and
carried in triumph. Hut elsewhere in
Europe the tradition of the cunning
archer has not survived the invention
of firearms.?A. Mosso, in Chautauquan.
