Ordeals Through Which a Big Gun Missile Must Pass. THE SOFT NOSE PROJECTILE. Its Ability to Bore Its Way Through Heavy Armor Plate Without Explod ing Until After Its Impact Was Dia covarad by Accident. Everybody knows that the modern shell is one of the most diabolical of man's inventions, but how many of us realize that it is also one of the most delicate and complicated? Recently some linns holding con tracts fur making high explosive shells took upon themselves to “correct" a detail in the specification, and, ns a re sult. a certain thread was “Improved." They will never do anything of the kind again, because all their work was rejected. The apparent absurdity—it Is, In fact, an absolute absurdity, from an engineering point of view Is de signed of set purpose. There is a somewhat similar anom aly In the big shell for penetrating armor plating, which was introduced in consequence of an accident. One day a test shell was fired at a piece of armor plating from the soft side, and the projectile went clean through It and exploded after Impact, whereas a similar shell fired against I lie front— the hardened and tempered side—shat tered and left an Indentation of only a few inches. This singular Incident set somebody thinking, and in consequence the high explosive armor piercing shell is now given a soft nose. To the hard point is attached a cap of soft metal, with which addition It will go through the toughest piece of armor plate. What happens on Impact seems to la* this: The cap spreads, holding the point and so enabling it—remember that the shell is revolving rapidly—to force Its way unbroken through the hard face of the plate by a Nort of boring action. No less curious Is another fact con cerning the points of such project lies. After the heads have been worked tin shells are loft for weeks before they undergo the next stage, because, strong ns they look, they are liable to snap. Why? Think of the razor. Constant stropping twists the grain, with the re sult that the steel gets “tired" and will not yield a keen edge. Hut If you put the thing away for a few weeks the grain will return to its normal state, and you can get a satisfactory shave. In a similar way the grain of the steel Is affected by working, though of course to a much greater extent, and until It is "set” the makers must go cautiously. Steel shows n like eccentricity in the making of test gauges. Some of the measurements of shells are very fine, and the Instruments employed are so delicate that they have to he used quickly lest the heat of the hand-causes the metal to expand. Now. when a groove Is cut in a piece of steel which Is to he used ns n test gauge the work Is laid aside for weeks, perhaps months. Why not finish It nt once? Because the groove, though dead true when cut out. may he otherwise hi a short time, even though it has been absolutely untouched. As a com-rete proof of the elaborate nature of projectile making take the ease of the shrapnel shell. 'Flic steel portion undergoes about a score of op erations. and the brass cartridge case attached to the base requires about six teen, counting from the disk of sheet brass to the finished article. Then there is the fuse, the delicacy of which resembles watchmaking. Altogether the shell Is subjected to about forty inspections and may be re ject ed at any stage. After a shell has survived this ordeal it ought to lie, one would think, per fect. but a test shell is taken from every 120 and actually fired from a gun into a hunk of sand. It is then again examined, and if the contour about the powder pocket Is expanded away goes tin* whole batch, because If they wen fired the grooving might be torn out of the gun. Perhaps the most striking Illustration of llie minute care exercised In projec tile making Is that every shell Is weigh ed over and over again. If you produce an eighteen pounder high explosive shell it must he only a few drams over or under Its normal weight; otherwise it Is rejected. In this connection it may be of inter est to note that an explosive shell that weighs only about seventy pounds will break into a shower of some 1.200 pieces. A single one of the monster projectiles tired from a fifteen inch na val gun will weigh 1,950 pounds. It takes twelve seconds for the projectile of a twelve Inch naval gun to reach its I*oint of impact when tiring at a range of five miles. To fire a battleship broadside costs a 1 >out $20,000.

In “A Bumbler’s Recollections” Mr. Alfred Cupper relates a delightful story once tolu him by Sir Herbert Tree. "You remember,” said Sir Herbert, "my Japanese play some years ago? Well, when I took It off Ills Majesty's I sent it on tour. “Now it happened that a certain town*was billed very profusely with this play and with the announcements of another play equully, if not, indeed, even more popular than my own. And both were announced as np(>eurlng on the same day at the two chief theaters In the town. “On the Sunday before the produc tion. the day on which the provincial companies always travel from town to town, there was quite u crowd gath-‘ LOOKED AT HIM J’ERTLY. ered to witness the respective arrivals of the two companies, who were due to travel by the same train. “Well, the train steamed in amid the great but subdued excitement of the waiting crowd, nml as" (mentioning a certain fy mo us and, be It added, very stately and particularly pompous nctor manager) “descended from his saloon, where he had been traveling in great state, a coquettish lady reporter step ped briskly up to him with pencil and notebook ready in her hand, looked nt him pertly and said she. with the pointed and affected accent of Upjier Tooting, ‘I beg your pardon, sir. but may I ask, are you “The Darling of the Gods” or “The Worst Woman In Lon don?" ’’’—London Tit-Bits.

A Thrilling Story. A good story is told of a stuttering plebe at Annapolis who was accosted by nil upper class man and ordered to tell him a story and to “tell It quick." The plebe started In as rapidly as bis excited state of mind would permit about ns follows: "I-I-l-l—was w-w-walklng down tin* road n-n-n 1-1-little while ago— n-n-n-n I met-met-met n-upper class man. n-n-n-n: he w-w-wns dandy f-fellow. n-n-n-n he slapped me on the b-b-bnek and said. ’Hello, old man!* n-n-u I was s-s-so excited nml happy I-I-I-I fell dead." —Exchange. The Weakness of William. Carefully the burglar effected an en trance Into the bank. Carefully lie found his way to the strong room. When the light from his lantern fell on the door he saw this sign: SAVE YOUR DYNAMITE THIS SAFE IS NOT LOCKED TURN THE KNOB AND OPEN. For a time he ruminated. “Anyway there’s no harm in trying If It really Is unlocked.” said he. He grasped the knob and turned. Instantly the office was flooded with light, an alarm bell rang loudly, an electric shock rendered him helpless, while a door in the wall flew open and a big dog seized him. "I know what’s wrong with me." he sighed an hour later when the cell door closed upon him. “I’ve too much faith in human nature—l’m too trusting! Exchange. Discovered! Bon Harris, the theatrical man. and But Mnsterson. the sporting expert, had an argument over the name of the discoverer of the Mississippi river. Mosterson said it was De Soto, nnd Harris thought it was somebody else. They decided to leave the decision to the next man who entered the cafo whore they were seated at the time. ; In u minute in came a vaudeville hook- j ing agent they both knew. Mastersoji I beckoned him over to their table, nnd be came. “Ike.” he said. “Ben here and I want you to settle a dispute for us. Was it De Soto who discovered the Mississippi river or wasn’t it?" “Well. If It was him I never board biin mention !(,’’ sabl tbe vaudeville man.

RAILROAD WAGES Shall they be determined by Industrial Warfare or Federal Inquiry? To the American Public: Do you believe in arbitration or indus trial warfare? The train employes on all the railroads are voting whether they will give their leaders authority to tie up the commerce of the country to enforce their demands for a 100 million dollar wage increase. The railroads are in the public service— your service. This army of employes is in the public service—your service. You pay for rail transportation 3 billion dollars a year, and 44 cents out of every dollar from you goes to the employes. On ail the Western railroads in 1915, seventy-five per cent of the train employes earned these wages (lowest, highest and average of all) as shown by the pay rolls— Pa»rei»gar Freight Yard Rill* A*tr*|t R>ki« A*w(|* Rang* Arerag* t . $1747 e _ ia . $1537 $lO5O Engineers. 3094 $2195 $2071 2445 * 1378 r . . 1543 i,n 1454 1151 ~c c Conductor. ,-gg 1878 2 933 1935 2 <H5 1335 Firemen . ** 1317 1181 «» 973 Brake*,.. 967 ™ 1135 1107 The average yearly wage payments to all Western train em ployes (including those who worked only part of the year) as shown by the 1915 payrolls were — Paggangor Freight Yard Engineers $2038 $1737 $l2lB Conductors 1772 1624 1292 Firemes •••••• 1218 973 832 Brakemen 921 1000 1026 A 100 million dollar wage increase for men in freight and yard service (less than one-fifth of all employes) is equal to a 5 per cent advance in all freight rates. The managers of the railroads, as trustees for the public, have no right to place this burden on. the cost of transportation to you without a clear mandate from a public tri bunal speaking for you. Tbe railroads have proposed the settle ment of this controversy either under the existing national arbitration law, or by refer ence to the Interstate Commerce Commis sion.

Another Way of Getting ’Em The last issue of the Craig Courier givps the following way of disposing of prairie dogs, etc: To exterminate prairie dogs or gophers take a piece of carbide one inch in diameter and drop it into the ! hole then pour a quart of water into i the-hole and immediately cover the hole with dirt. If there is any other opening the squrriels will run out and usually get from live to fifteen feet away and drop dead. This is a cheap method and has been satisfactorily tried out by the government. Two men should work together. One drops the carbide in, the second pours the water in. the first puts a shovel of dirt on the hole. The quicker it is done the less gas fumes will escape and the more effective it will he. MONEY TO LOAN—On farm se curity. Low interest. For particu lars. apply to F. Sheridan, Meeker.

SATURDAY, JULY 29. 1915 FOR PRESIDENT Woodrow Wilson FOR VICE PRESIDENT Thomas R. Marshall Republican Campaign Falls Flat Since those few effervescent bub bles which followed the Republican nomination, have disappeared the country has almost forgotten who the Republicans and Bull Moose nom nated for president. Every day bring* added proof that the country is more than satisfied with that great safe and sane statesman in the White House, and that it intends to engage his services for four more years. There was a very significant devel opment at the Chicago Republican convention, which a good many have overlooked. When the Republicans have hopes of winninga victory,there is not only a scramble for the tem porary chairmanship of the conven t ion,but a scramble for the permanent chairmanship too. These two offloes are high honors and the incumbents are the two keynoters of the conven tion. Tiiis year however, the Repub licans did not have enough issues for one keynoter much less for two, and instead of electing a temporary and permanent chairman, thus honoring two of its big loaders,they made poor old Senator Harding of Ohio, fill both hills as there was no scramble for chairmanships this year, for the scramblers do not like the idea of try ing to make a “funeral sermon” sound like a battle cry, and so they allowed the double honor to devolve on Sena tor Harding, who was both temporary and permanent chairman, and Borne of the reports said he fell flat and others snid he blew up which is say ing tlie same thing in a different way. When governments fall out militia men fall in. Constipation ami ImliffeNtion “I have used Chamberlain’s Tablets and must say they are the best I have ever used for constipation and indi gestion.
