I I f I MEDALS GIVEN OUT! Whit Was Hone Last Night in the ureat Parade. All Satisfied That They Were Beautiful and the Staff. ABOUT A DOZEN WERE GIVEN TO 'EM All of Durham ine Out to Se Buildings of Whieh They Have Reason to lie Very Proud. The whole of Durham was cut last night to see the last of Trinity commence ment, and the promenade concert was voted by all the crowning success of the Week. Hundreds of citizens who had never before one through the building, were there last night, and notwithstanding all that has been said and written of new Trinity, there went up on every hand f tclamationa of surprise in which admi ration found expression, many for the first time realized that we had right here in Durham one of the handsomest set of college buildings in the South, and their town pride increased as new develop ments were unfolded. An interesting feature of the evening was the presentation of medals by the societies, the following heing the suc cessful contestants : Columbian society Oratory, W. C. Mcrritt : debater's medal, I'lummer Stew art ; declamation, Kmmett K.McLarty; essayist, II. P. Boggs. Hesperian society ratory, Chas. E. Turner; debate, T. A. Smoot ; declama tion, K P. Carpenter. There were presented by Major W. A. Guthrie, Messrs. W. V. Andrews, W. H. Branson, McGary, Professors Armstrong and Bassett and Levi Branson. The class of '93 each received, in addi tion to these, a graduating medal. Bach was presented with appropriate remarks and in a happy vein. Refreshments were served in the din ing hall, and the festivities were contin ued till a late hour. Hood's Sarsaparilla positively cures even when all others fail.

Some remarkable re- suits may be expected in the use ofjOFCOURSE THEY'LL BE FIXED SOON smokeless powder both by trie artillery and the infantry. The difficulties in the way of introducing this powder have now been overcome very thor oughly, and the strategist has to deal with new conditions of warfare in very long range of weapons and invisibility, which were not thought of ten years a?ro. The scientific aspect of war is in the ascendant far more than has for merly been the case, and, according to the San Francisco Call, generals of the Moltke type are more needed than leaders of personal daring and dash, whose impetuosity is of little avail in modern tactics. The perplexity into which smokeless powder may throw a commander was illustrated recently during artillery maneuvers at Alder shot, in England. Sir Evelyn Wood, who is in command at this military camp, reported that one battery which bad been pounding away for some min utes at a distance of one mile and a half was so invisible to the force which it was attacking that for the sake of practice orders were sent to fire a few rounds of ordinary black powder in or der that the position might be distin guished and the range found. In ac tual hostilities there would be no such accommodation. The death-dealing guns would be served with energy as long as the advantage of being unseen and unopposed remained. This must be regarded as a striking proof that the new powder of the British service, cordite, is answering its purpose well. Cordite consists of about fifty per cent, of nitro-glycerine and fifty per cent, of nitro-cotton, which are combined by a solvent in small proportion, and cam phor is added to reduce the sensitive ness to explosive action. The material is a paste rather than a powder, and it is made by special machinery in the form of thin cords or threads, which are afterward rolled into cartridges of any size and form. Cordite is thus equally suitable for small arms or ar tillery'. An initial velocity of two thousand feet per second is obtained and the pressure within the gun cham ber is said to be less than when black powder is used. The smokeless pow der called balistite is somewhat sim ilar in composition and is also prepared in any shape for use by the soldier or sportsman. One very distinctive ad vantage this smokeless ammunition of the nitro-glycerine-cotton description has over gunpowder lies in impermea bility to water. IN A CAVE OF BATS. They Spend the Winter There Hanging; to the Walls. Over in the mountains of Center coun ty there is a cave which is a curiosity in its way. It is perhaps three hun dred feet in length, from ten to thirty feet high and in the widest place per haps sixty or seventy feet across. A good-sized stream has its source here and the bottom of the cave is constant ly covered with water from six to eight feet deep, says Punxsutawney Spirit. The cave has a janitor, who, like old Charon, remains at tho edge of this little underground lake, and, provided with lamps similar to those used for campaign torches, rows passengers into the black depths of this miniature Erebus. He also sees to it that the stalagmites and stalactites are not broken and carried away by the relic hunters. Dr. Warren, state ornithologist and zoologist, who is now compiling a work on the animals of Pennsylvania, vis ited this cave a few days ago in order to get some specimens of bats. " The cavern,' said Dr. Warren to a repre sentative of the Spirit, "is the most popular rendezvous for bats in Penn sylvania. All varieties and species of the chiereptra gather here to hibernate through the winter. Thejr hang in rows all over the walls and roof of the cave. They arrange themselves in regular rows, like battalions of sol diers, the different varieties collecting together. "The large bats are aU separated from the small ones. In fact, they are arranged in straight and orderly lines according to size, with a method and system that is marvelous. It would not be exaggeration to sav that there are millions of them. I took a sack and a pole with me. scraped the bats off with the pole and let them drop into the sack. I could have got a dozen cartloads of the little animals in this way if 1 hael desired." This is a remarkable cavern in its way, but is as yet little known to fame or anybody else outside of Center county. Letters as a Profession. Robert Buchanan in the Idler -peaks bus bitterly of literature: " I entire ly agree with Mr. Grant Allen in his recent avowal that literature is the poorest and the least satisfactory oi all professions: I will go ever farther and affirm that it is one of the least ennobling. With a fairly extensive knowledge of the writers of my own period, 1 can honestlv sav I have not met one individual who has not deto- tionate successes. A Philosopher Born.
