THEY ARE THE FAVORITE WEAPONS AMONG MILITARY MEN. These Img Base Death Dealers Cast lie Fired With Great Rapidity, Are aa Ac curate as K riles at Their Baagw aad Kx ert Trenaeadows Energy. The betterment of the modern field gun ia fully equal to the development of other branches of military armament It has been especially rapid within the last dozen years. The work of special ists and the results of extended tests have ended iu the produotionjof a weap on cf great accuracy and of titanic force. The field gnu of today is the fa vorite weapon of the military man, and he expects from it some very remark able demonstrations when opportunity to use it occurs. Napoleon is credited with the remark that Providence is alwavs on the aide of the heavy artillery, but the artillery which Xapoleon knew was not worthy to be mentioned on the same day with tho light, graceful and deadly arm with which the moderns are prepared to do slaughter. The first great step forward was taken when the breechloadiug ac tion was invented. Well known scien tific rules of boring and tho improve ment in projectiles and auwricrs have done the rest. The field 'gun now in use bf the ppvroes is as accurate at its range as a rifle and has tremendous energy. The United States has no better field. guns than those with which the armies of Ccr-raany and France are armed, but they are every bit as good. Like our other ordnance they are all made on this side of the water. The American manufacturer yields to no one in ability to make a perfect weapon. Indeed many of the chief improvements in field guns and in the larger sizes, somctinies called siege" guns, are tho products of Amer ican brains. Tho field guns of the United Stalra army are made at Watervliot, N. Y., just as the largo guns for the navy and for coast defense are turned out at Washington. They have a caliber of a little more than three inches, arc, of coarse, breechloading, are rather lengthy for their width and aro lightly but atrougly mounted. They use a point ed shell which explodes either on con cussion or by time fuse, generally the former, and are fired with great rapidity. bach gun of a battery is in command of a liouteniint, who, nnder the eve of his superior, sights it and directs its working. He has his elevation, depres sion and wind gauge formula? at his fingers' ends, and with him good shoot- iug is mainly a question of care. Tho powder used in these guns is of tho smaller grained brown hexagonal kind, though the pheroidal is preferred for some calibers. Tho recoil cf this gun on level ground is 26 feet, with the wheels unlocked. With tho wheels locked it roeoils five feet, and it rn forward and rattighred very swiftly. Its point blank range is 2,200 yards. It can be made effective at a much greater distance, of course, but officers prefer that raugo for accurate shooting. It fell to me sorao seven years ago to report the first field trial given the W atervhet guns. Three of them were sent to Fort Sam Houston at San Au touio, where Light Battery F, Third artillery, was stationed under command of Major .Tames B. Burbank, a mast ca pable officer, now attached to the staff of the governor of New York. Major Bnrbank was instructed to try them out thoroughly and for this purpose select ed an ideal range on Gauahl's ranch, GO miles north of ban Antonio. The guns were planted in line and 20 feet apart on tho sido of a green hill and pointed across a shallow valley. On thoopposita hill, 2,200 yards away, a tent fly was put up r.s a target. It was 15 by 9 feet in dimension and was stretched on two pules. At that distance it looked like nothing in the world so much as a man's pocket handkerchief. One shot was irod as a range finder. and that shot proved the range was found. Then the work began. For half an hour these guns, pitched shells through or under or aver tho tar get, according to the firing diiuUions, with as much accuracy as a man would use a Winchester riflo at 100 yards. The work was done with tho precision cf a clock. There was the rush of the pitee into its first position, the quick command to load, the rapid aim and disckirge, the faint scream of the shell, the puff of smoke and dull report as it struck and the dust rosa np in a pillar. Wlwn it was ended, we rode across tho valley and np tho opposite slope to the spot where the tent fly had stood. Bits of it layabout here and there. One of the poles was bitten short off. For 60 yards below tho other pole, for 80 yards op either side of it and for 100 yards above it tho earth was net plowed it was harrowed. An ant could not havo lived on the ground. It was not difficult to imagine what would havo become of an opposing force. Men and horses would have been dead and all guns dismounted in five minutes after the firing began. There could have been no better illustration of the abso lutely fatal character of theso pies. It was found that they did not become unmanageable through heat, that the breech mechanism displayed no sign of strain, that the recoil was not greater than was calculated and that accuracy was as perfect with the last shell aa with the first. These findings were re ported to the Washington authorities. and the manufacture of the guns went on. The regular army is now thorough ly supplied with them. Chicago Timea- llerald. Don't atop Him.

With Gen. Miles from (inantauamo, Cuba, go 10 companies of the regiment in cluding Company A. of this citv, and Company F, of Moline. while from Charleston the remaining two com panies of the regiment, left there on the departure of the others for San tiago, now sail. These ta-qf forces with the one from Tainpa, Fla., number nearlv 10,000 men. (Jen. Miles is said to have 4.000 with him. The Charleston detachment numbers aliout 4,000, aad the Tampa party about it will be the last oi next week before this force will be swelled bv the arrival of later detachments off the coast of Porto Rico. It mav therefore lie 10 days lie fore the Amer ican armv attempts anv move In the island beyond seizing a landing place, and it is even possible it will be two weeks, lor war movements are neces sarily slow, and many delays occur unexpectedly. The war department has refused to tell what troops are with Gen. Miles. The 6th Massa chusetts and a battalion of the 6th Illiuois went to Cuba on the Yale and Columbia, and were followed bv six more companies of the Illinois regiment on an ordinary transport. These oldiers belong to the brigade of Ocn. fJ. A. ;rreton, which, with Gen. II. M. Duffiehl's brigade of the 33.1 and 34th Michigan and Oth Massachu setts, was to form a division under (Jen. Guy V. Henry. Gon. (j!lrret soo also had the 8th Ohio in his bri gade, but it went from New York ou the St. Paul. War department offi cials who thought the 1st Illinois was on loard hip have changed their omuls. 1 hey now accept the press report, which said the 1st Illinois was at the front and complimented the rough riders with cheers. Geri. Duflield's brigade will stay in Cuba for the present. PERSONAL POINTS. Charles McIIiigh is iu Peoria today. Arthur Burrall is in Galesbunr to day. Hon.

There are alnmt fifteen hundred men at Unalaska building boats for different companies. And there is aliout the same number of miners, who are camped out ready to go up as soon as the lioats are completed. Here at St. Michaels are uyncrs who are going up aud miners who have just come out of the fields. The lat ter bring but few good reports. About two out of every ten made ex penses. The ice has iust srone out of the river, and the snow is still in evi dence. We will start in steamhoat- ing about a week heuce. One feature of this season's travel to Dawson City is the number of ladies who are roing there to open tin restaurauts. Half of the passengers on the boat we came upon, the St. Paul, were ladies. The St. Paul was making her maiden trip when we came up on her. The ice in the Behring sea wave us a deal of trouble and delayed us two days.

Satisfartory Cooking Depends Largely an This Trivial rreeeea. Sallie Joy White lays down them valuable rules for boihug in "Cookery For Girla" in The Woman's Homo Companion : "For all green vegetables uso soft water, salted and freshly boiling. Conk rapidly until soft The time will depend upon tue age or the (reabuess of the veg etable. "With green peas, shelled beans, green corn, airparagua, oelery and spin ach uto as little water as possible, and let it boil away, leaving jest enough to moisten, and thus save all tbe desirable eolublo matter that may have been drawn out. Cook' cabbage and cauli flower uncovered, in a large kettle of rapidly boiling water, salted and with a saltspounfol of soda in it; onions. scald and change tbe water twice. All others cook iu water enough to cover, and drain it off afttr cocking. Green eummer Hqnash. cabl&ge and other wa tery vgotablfcg should be pressed in a cloth or straintr and well drained. "Many people wb6 attempt to rook are apt to fcrget that there is a wide distinction between 'boiled water and 'boiling water,', aud that the free hn ess is lost by lung boiling, to that the soon er water is used after it has cached tbe boiling poiut tbe more satisfactory the cookioK will He. If water stands after boiling, it loses its vitality and cannot be ud with good result. That is why tea and coffee are so frequently fiat and lifeless, without sparkle or Savor; not because tbe .aves and ber ries are not good, but because they are improperly made with 'boiled water' instead of freshly 'bulling water.'
