TEST FARM LOCATION
"Truckers Urge That it be Change!.
The Matter Reoined.
italeigh, X. C, June 3. The state
1oard of agriculture devoted this fore
noon to hearing argument by Z. V.
Whitehead and others in favor of
changing the location of the new state
truck farm, recently located at Wil
lard, Pender county. Mr. Whitehead
is editor of the Truck and Fruit Grow
ers' Journal and his contention is that
the Truckers Association want more
of an accessible point They seem
to prefer the Wilmington section,
but the coMinittee from the board con
tend that ther is not in the Wilming
ton section suitable soil with proper
subsoil conditions to represent the
problems which confront the trucking
section generally. It is necessary that
the soil is representative of the whole
Jouth Atlantic region. The board de
pitied to reopen the whole matter of
location and to change it provided a
lietter location with suitable soil is
found by Mr. Whitehead his associates
who undertake to meet the require
ments. The board will have no further bus
iness sessions until Monday, when
they will hear addresses by Governor
Glenn and Senator Simmons on im
migration with a view to having tue
board undertake a work of this kind.

How the Japs Learned to Shoot.
Dewey's victory at Manila was
quickly gained through the good
marksmanship of his men. Schley pre
vented the escape of Cevera's fleet by
good gunnery. The American navy
spends a good deal of money in target
practice, but it has been well spent.
Experience ha staught, the best bat
tleship is almost useless as an engine
of war unless its gunners are. good
marksmen. The Japs have proved
that their aim is good. They attained
proficiency by constant sub-caliber
Iratae, this being secured through a
novel device a Japanese invention.
How they got their target practice is
thus described: "On every one of the
large caliber guns on the Japanese bat
tleships and cruisers had been placed
a miniature gun. For hours at a time,
day after day, the Japanese would en
gage in target practice with these min
iature guns. They would shoot at a
target which would be placed at dis
tances which would be in tue same
proportion to the carrying power of the
miniature gun as one, two, three, four
or five miles, we will say, would be to
the big gun. The gun crew would go
through exactly the same drill prepar
atory to discharging the miniature gun
as it would if the big gun of which the
small gun was the counterpart was to
he fired. The cost of such target prac
tice was trilling as compared with
ihc'niost of firing the big gun, and
so expense put no limit to the number
of shots that could be fired. The gun',
r.ers would shoot the small gun on the
dip and rise of the vessel, when she
listed, in heavy and calm seas, until
they became so expert that their per
centage was phenomenal."
An American officer who witnessed
this target practice of the Japanese
urged the navy department to permit
him to try the Japanese plan, but per
mission was declined. The Baltimore
Sun says that "it was undoubtedly the
aeadly accuracy they acquired by the
...constant use of the miniature guns
-that enabled the Japanese to use their
' big guns against Itojestvensky with
- such terrible effect" Charlotte Chron

he ammunition receptacles were
pricked with coal: the sailors had to
sit up all night because the bunks
were filled with coal: even their ham
mocks were swung up on deck and fill

of the cans because everything in the
pantries, kitchens and dining rooms
was ruled with coal: the decks were
piled with coal so that it was impos

tops v.ere filled with coal we had an
awful time getting the coal up to
them, too: and the boats that hung
on the davits were likewise crowded
and stacked with black diamonds.
That's the result of coaling so much.
I wouldn't advise th3 fourth Pacific
souadron when it starts (excuse me
while I smile.) to coal so often.
I really believe my victory was less
brilliant than it would have been if I
had coaled seldomer.

Winston-Salem, June 3 The May
term of Forsyth Superior court ad
journed late this afternoon. The jury
in the Johnston Street railway case
was dismissed, it failing-to agree upon
a verdict. The plaintiff, a young man
sued for $3,000 for
mashed by a street car, claiming he
was nut off by the conductor while
the car was running. Eight of the
iurvmen voted not to allow him

was entitled to damages.
A rather novel case was tried to
daw It was to decide whether Martin
Peoples or his stepson were entitled to
one thousand dollars for tne reouua
Ins of the home of Mrs. Peoples, de
stroyed by the reservoir disaster last
fall. The issue presented to the jury
was that if they found that Mrs. Peo

then they should find that the sou was
entiled to the home, but that if the
wife and mother lived after the reser

the husband was entitled to the place.
