WILL HAVE NEW FEATURES HeK buns'1 are to be Arranged 8d at I to Allow a Broadside Fire 25 Per I , Cent Greater than that of l Any Other Ship. Newport News, Va., Feb. 6. Cora pated with the battleships, completed jt -tinder construction, of the navy ot any foreign country, the Delaware, which vfls launched hero to-day, surpasses all. She Is one of four sis ter ships authorized by congress wlilch will form an tnddmltable cd.dadron. The other vessels are the North Dakota, being built at Qulncy, Muhtft: the Florida, which will be blillfat the NuW York navy yard, and thei Utah, to bo built at Camden, N. J. The Delaware la to carry ns heavy arntor-and aB powerful armament as any known vessel of Its class; will Lave a speed of 21 knots, which Is believed to be the highest practicable for a vessel of this type and class, mid will 'have the highest practicable radius of uctlon. The arrangement ot her main battery guns Is such as to permit u broadside lire 25 per cent greater than that of the broadside fire of any battleship now built, or, bo far as is known, under construe tlori. Her defensive qualities, other than 'those dependent upon armor protection, are such us to give the maximum degree of protection to all the vital portions by means of un usually effective compartmental sub division, so that In conjunction with her armor protection, the defensive qualities of this vessel are believed to be distinctly superior to those of any battleship hitherto designed. The hull Is protected by u wuter line belt of armor eight feet In width, whoso maximum thickness Is 11 lliches. This armor belt elves eftec- jflve protection to the boilers, machln- ry and magazine spaces. The side above the main armor belt is pro tected by armor seven feet three in ches wldo and of u maximum thick ness of ten Inches. Above the main casemate armor amidships the side s protected by armor of tlve inches hlckness, which affords protection to the smoke pipes, the major portion dJ the secondary batteries of llve-ii'ch nuns, and the hull structure. ,Tho plans for tho Delaware were prepared by tho board of construc tion in competition with plans sub mitted by various naval architects rind shipbuilding companies and sub mitted to a special board nnd later approved by congress. The contract for the Delaware was placed Aucust C, 1907, at a price of $3,987,000. Tho Delaware Is BIO feet in length on load water line, 85 feet two Inches In breadth and her mean draft to bottom of keel at trial dis placement about 27 feet. Her coal bunker capacity Is 2, COO tons, which Is1 stlfllclent to send her at a ten-knot spaed a dlstanco of 0,720 knots, or 28 days' steaming. Provision Is also made for the stowage ot a large amount of oil fuel without in any de-greo- reducing the capacity of the coal bunkers. She will have triple expan sion reciprocating engines and will teqdtro over 900 men to man her. Her armament will consist of a main battery of ten 12-Inch breech loading rifles, and her secondary bat ter will bo 14 five-Inch rapid fire gunst four three-pounder oalutlng guns, four one-pounder soml-nutoma-tttt Buns, two three-inch field pieces nnd two machine guns, of 30 culiber. 'The Delaware will have a displace ment on trial of 20,000 tons, or 2,100 tons greater than tho British Dread cavpht and 7C0 tons greater tunn Great Britain's latest vessel of that typo, the Vanguard. .

A Gam of Chance at Timet Under the. Law Protecting Fmployees. , "Kansas 1b a great State," said the man whoso busluesB keeps him Jump ing from town to town in tho sunflower country, "all except tho railroad, and these sure did bother mo In tho few months that I, a raw Easterner, spent In tho State. "It Is a gamo of chanco sometime! to get from one place, and It Isn't all due to the fact that the further you get away from New York the more rail road schedules go awry. They have n law in Kansas that no railroad em ployee shall work more than sixteen hours on a stretch, and that's what plays tho dickens. "A few superb trains pass through ICaiiBOS that's what they do, pass through, Bcnrcely stopping long enough to say howdy. They aro going to the Coast or returning, imd once lu a while I can make n tiip KdBtern style, but for tho Bhort lortil trips that my business demands It's mixed freight and passenger trains mdst of the time. "Here's whero tho law to protect employes woiks like a wheel of for tune. Tho schedule may call for arri val ht a particular place lu ample tlmo for the crows to bo Changed le gally, but If rt lot of freight IS to bo handled nt preceding slopping places tho delay may bo so great that tho sixteen hour limit may cxplie mlleu mid miles short of destination. "If this limit doeii bo expire there's nothing for It but to run the tialn to tho next place that resembles a atop, If It's only tt siding, and lay It oIT. The tlext train that coincs along doubles up vvlth tho Btnlled train and takes tho law protected trainmen along as pasiengeis. "They musn't work, mind you, until eight hours have elapsed. Occasionally there Is no next train for mote than eight hours. In that case the crew, having had Its legal n-ct, may resume work. i "This Is gospel ti'utli I'm telling you, for I have been iield tip In those stal led trains many a time. "Oho night I was going up tho Lin coln branch ot tho Union Paclllc hop ing to rpach Marysvlllo late that night. The train had only ono passenger car. There wus triot of way freight and wo kept losing nnd losing time. "Tho sixteen hour limit of work for that crow catno at midnight, when wo were nbout twclvo miles out of Marys vlllo. We weio near a Biding and Into this wo i an propaied to wait for an other train or for tho eight hours to expire. "Thero wasn't a sign of a Jiouho unywhero, so tho passengers, only six men then, spent the night ns best they could In tho car. Tho trainmen hod the more comfortable, caboose. "Thoro wo stuck until daylight. I-Io itoxt train had como then, so tho six of us trudged, along, until wo found a farmhouse. "Wo got tho farmer to drive us Into Marysvlllu and beat tho train In ut that." What Kind of Noise is Worst. Many a nervous woman hns occa sion to consider what kind ot a noise Is most likely to banish sleep.' It Is not strange that tho crusado agaliiBt unnecessary nolso should bo led by a woman, nud that sho should find thousands ot eager suppoiters among her sox. The country and tho city present different problems to tho seek or for quiet. The steady roar ot tho city street Is often less trying than than the persistent crow of the early rlslng looster or tho clang ot tho cow bell. The neighbor who sifts coal ash es before tho light belongs to tho same class with tho ono who narrates his family affairs at dawn under tho window in a loud and cheerful volco. The shriek of tlio(wlIlstlo, the call ot the newsboy, tho rattle of the milk cart are all "trlulsomo,'' as a certain old lady used to say ot her thlldreti, hut perhaps tho most unforgivable nolso for a seusltlvo person -Is ono which occurs at slightly Inegular In tervals, and tor a long peilad. The drip of a water-pipe, tho whine of a dog, tho slam ot a blind thoso aro tho noises which destroy temper and Bleep, oven for well women, When ono has struggled through a night tor tured by such objcctlounblo clamors, one realizes the full meaning of tjio poet's dream bf peace, whole ''Silence Ilka a poultice comes, to heal tno blows of Bound!"
