j Idaho Leids The Whole List —Greal Im
proyrmrnt In Marksmanship In A
\ Single Year
All previous gunnery scores of the
1 American Navy, and of any warships
■ | of the world, for that matter, have
r been smashed, according to the re
£ | suit of the computation of target
practice records which have been made
• by Lieut.-Commander Leigh Palmer,
1 inspector of target practice, and made
public today by Secretary Meyer,
f The battleship Idaho, which was
several numbers down the list on
record target practice last year, has
jumped to the top, and apparently
won the record practice trophy from
the Washington, which last year took
it from the armored cruiser Maryland.
The Maryland stood No. 3 last
year, but this year she has been push
ed down to No. 8.
While the Maryland did better
shooting this year than ever before,
* she was excelled by the Idaho, South
Carolina, Wisconsn, Nebraska, Vir
gina, New Hampshire and Mississippi
in the order named. The other two in
the “1C star’ list are the Georgia
and Louisiana.
The official standing, as announced,
is as follows: Idaho, 46.121; South
Carolina, 42.585; Wisconsin, 40.478;
Nebraska, 39.497; Virginia, 39.127;
New Hampshire, 38.418; Mississippi,
36.912; Maryland, 34.967; Georgia,
31.667; Louisiana, 30.304; Missouri,
30.086; Minnesota, 29.201; New Jer
sey. 26.114; Michigan, 26.081; Kan
sas, 23.659; Connecticut, 20.797;
Pennsylvania, 18.881; West Vir
ginia. 18.225; Vermont, 17.064 ; Rhode
Island, 17.46; California, 16.415; Col
orado, 14.943.
The final merit of those vessels which
have mined are (guns and mines com
bined) Wisconsin, 45.394; Maryland,
37.587; West Virginia, 22.264; Cali
fornia, 25.629; Colorado, 17.353.
The Montana,North Carolina and Ten
nessee will have practice late in July;
the Washington, South Dakota and
New York, as soon as practicable.
The following competed for the
cruiser trophy: Charleston, 21.075;
Chattanooga, 16.992; Cleveland,
16.203; Salem, 16.043. The Albany,
New Orleans, Chester, Birmingham
and Yorktown have not yet fired.
For the Gunboat Trophy May
flower, 6.612; Wilmington, 6.251;
Helena, 5.669: Arayat, 5.026; Para
gua, 2.420; Villaloboa, 1.445; Min
doro, 0.586; Yankton, 0.462. The fol
lowing vessels have not fired: Dixie,
Prairie, Paducah, Dubuque ami Mari
atta. Some of the gunbeuts rolled
while firing from 4 to 6 degrees each
side of the vertical.
For the Torpedo Trophy Preble,
90.928; Perry, 80.963; Stewart,
56.508; Paul Jones, 48.860; Truxton,
45.470; Hu11,22.816; Whipp1e,16.653;
Lawrence, 6.343; Rowan, 0.055.
The best firing ever done by any gun
in either the armies or navies of the
world was made by the after 12-inch
turret on the Soutli Carolina, Ensign
Bellinger in charge. This turret
made 100 per cent 16 hits out of 16
shots in 4 minutes and 32 seconds.
This was not sufficiently supported
by the other guns, however, to give
the South Carolina the trophy. The
best score was made by the Idaho,
averaging 96 per cent with all of her
12-inch and 7-inch guns. This is the
highest average ever made by an en
tire ship.
ln fact, the Idaho and South Caro
lina both stand above all previous
world’s records with one turret. En
sign C. C. Gill carried ofT the honors
for the Idaho. He made three hits
out of three shots in 68 seconds. This
gives him the highest individual per
centage of any officer or man in the
navy, this being 2.7 hits per gun per
Naval authorities are marveling
over the results of the practice, which
was done under Jsattle conditions as
exacting as the battle practice here
tofore has been conducted. Previous
to the last firing, the targets were
usually 21 by 17 feet, anchored, and
| fired upon from boadside at a distance
of approximately 1,700 yards, with
the ship moving at about eight knots.
Only a 3-degree roll of the vessel was
required while firing. During the
recent practice the targets were re
duced to 15 by 12 feet, at about 1,700
yard, with the ships rolling and pitch
ing in the rough open sea.
The Atlantic fleet fired off the
Virgnia Capes and the armored cruis
ers of the Pacific fleet off San Diego,
j OaL In almost every case the ship
was from 50 to 70 miles off shore
while firing, and the target, instead
of being stationary, was towed by a
seagoing tug. The recent ruling of
the Navy Department, that no more
sthooth-water firing should be done
and that all firing should be held in
the open, has developed a class of
gun-pointers who have proved them
selves able to meet these difficult con

evertt was an important one in local
Eagledom, and among other features
it included the initiation of a eandi

'1 he object of the meeting was the
exemplification of the secret work
of the Order by visiting members of
the Baltimore Aerie. This was ac
complished perfectly without the
ritual, the visiting Eagles occupying
two hours in exemplifying the secret
work without a manual and without a
single error. Secretary of the local
Aerie, Mr. W. U. McCready, follow- j
ed the work in the text, and saw that
the oral exemplification was perfect.
Baltimore Aerie recently won the
prize as the banner Aerie for exem

The County Superintendent Dis
cusses The Choice Of Sites
And What Should De
termine I hem
A Policy Thai Places A Public School In
An Unfit Pffice Because Land Is
Sir. Editor :
•Now that we arc altonl to build several
new dislriet schoolhnuses. it is iiii|Mirtant
| that we should clearly understand the
| conditions which should govern is in
1 the choicest locations and sites. And
| it may well U> stated at the outset that
no selfish motives should tie allowed to
I determim- such ehoiee. On such oeea
| sious there are nearly always persons
vvlmi are willing to give Hitt'S, some, of
I eourse. from disinterested and public
spirited reasons, hut others liecanse they
hope either to etihaiuu* the value of their
property by having the school located on
their places or to have it as convenient as
possible for their own children. The
solicitations and offers of these latter
persons should never Is* considered for
a moment. The only determining factor
should lie the convenience of the whole
neighliorliood; and in a growing com
munity, spreading in various directions,
sncli a site should In' chosen as will lie
central aud convenient to all possible
parts of such a community, when it shall
have reached its limits, whether it be 25 i
or 50 years in s. doing. The wishes of
individual* should Ik* consulted only in
so far as they coincide with the general
and best interests of the oemmunity.
This proposition seems to me so self evi
dent that it leaves no room for contro
versy and none should be allowed.
A second consideration of equal im
portanee is the of the site it
self; and this should be on a high ami
level plain and yi all cases, situated on
the main thoroughfare. The soil should
Is' good, so that the pupils can be in
forested in the cultivation of (lowers
and such vegetables ns pan be grown
during the* school term. There should
lie ample room for a play ground. Ross
than an acre would hardly suffice. This
seems to me to lie of capital importance,
and yet little attention appears to have
beeu paid, in the past, to the choice of
Hchoolbonse sites front this Standpoint
presumably Itecause the educative and
ethical value of play, when properly di
reeled, was either overlooked or was not
given sufficient weight in making the
choice. ’l'he consequence is that not one
in a dozen of the schoolhotise sites in
tin* county is lit for the purpose for
which they are use<4 in some cases tin*
pupils have no place to play except in 1
the public roads. The importance of the
question demands that we consider well
where we locate schools in the future.
The very tiest sites possiftle should be
secured, even if they cost several him
drcil dollars each. To put a school in
tffi iiiitit place merely because the land
is donated would be a pennywise ami
pound foolish policy, as it would be a
plague and ail eyesore as hmg as it
Play and physical exercise in the ed
ucation of the young have been domin
ant forces even from the beginning of
the race’s existence,but the modern world
has lieeu slow to yield assent to their
demands, although more than a hundred
years ago European writers on pedagogy
began to call attention to their educa
tional iiiijKirtance. I%glaml, Germany
and France may la* cited as instances
of what physical training, when held in
snbordination to literary culture, will do
in the production of splendid scholar
ship. There games and sjsirts are in
dulged in chiefly-'for their value in pro
ducing a healthy mind in a healthy Vmklv.
| Scholarship then follows as a natural
consequence. Here in America we have
perverted the true end of play, and the
only object seems to lie to win games.
This vve must do at all hazard, even to
the 'rtfent of killing or maiming our op
[•oiients. So much has the* come to lie
regarded as essential, that a young man,
when choosing his school for a higher
education, selects, in ninety-nine cases
our of a hundred, the college or uni
versity, which has to its credit the great
est number of athletic victories. He
doesn’t go to college to study but to
; play, and the result is a woeful falling
! off in the scholarship of the graduates
lof these institutions. This phase of
! the question can only lie touched on
i licre. I am only arguing for the neces
sity of play when properly directed* as
a moral and educational factor, chiefly
on the score, as the old proverb says,
that all work and no play makes Jack
a dull lsy. Proverlis have been said
! to be the eoncentratioii of a nation’s wis
dom, and the proof of this saving is
j fully justified in this case. When chil
j dren have ample facilities for play, their
intellectual faculties arc awakened and
j brightened, and tlieir capacity for work
| is greatly increased. Moreover, I believe
that, if the schools are rendered more at
| Urn tive by supplying the best means for
aniut im-uts during the hours of recrea

Resident Of Conduit Street
Did Not l se Chloroform
How li Ha l * Possible To Curb It.e
Judas Biped
On t onduit street Inights the
' residents sleep soundly. lEintisturiied
by any soutuls not in strict keeping
and liarniony with tho needs of Mur
pheux tiro steeply sloop and wake
not, oven to tho shrill buzz of tho
morning alarm clock. No longer aro
their slumbers disturbed by barnyai.l
sounds which,in tho past luniod night
into a saturnalia of sounds wlu.-h has
made sloop all but impossibo.
Such lias boon the disturbance in
the past that practically all of the
residents have lost their religion and
there exists a splendid field for, the
missionary to lead the erring ones
back into tho fold. This sail state of
ntlairs was all due to, and brought
about by chickens just plain,common
chickens, but the scene of riot, blood
shod and imprecations which they
produced would have provided mater
ial for the yellowest of yellow papers.
A well known.resident of that street
is the proud possessor of a bunch of
1 chickens which is largely composed
of roosters. Suddenly, and without
warning, the roosters started on a
regular jamboree of crowing. Karlv
in tho night they would start and not
until tho sun was high in the heavens
the next morning would they desist
from ther self-imposed task of greet
ing the daylight. Sleep was out of
the question, and many articles which
could be little spared were hurled in
the direction of the crowing bipods.
Night after night they took up their
song and three cats of the neighbor
hood were hushed to silence, retired
on their laurels and forced to take a
back seat. At last the owner of the
chickens was appealed to. He was
threatened with arrest, bodily barm
and the sure annihilation of his fain-*
ily or the next four gnerations.
Device after device and plan after
plan was tried without success and
the roosters crowed on. Lights were
kept burning in the chicken house
,at night, but they only served to in
tensify the volume of sound that
welled forth. As the chickens did a
j considerable amount of scratching in
the garden in the day time, their toes
were amputated, but it only seemed
to accentuate their desire for night
At last their owner hit on a plan
which has solved the problem ami
made it possible for the residents of
the street to enjoy a good sleep, He
provided himself with a large number
of elastic bands, and now, each night
at chicken retiring time he fastens
one about the beak of each and every
rooster. In the morning be again
visits the roost and removes the bands
Now the only crowing done by the
roosters is in the day time and every
body is happy
