But beside tho sen tlmental Intorost which naturally at taches to tho craio th rou nh the man ner of Its presentation to tho United Blotes navy, tho plans are worthy of special attontlon because of tho fael that they provide for tho largest bat tleship, bar none, In tho world. Tho length of tho American Hoy. according to tho plans, Is 1,000 feet, or nenrly thrco tlraos tho length of the Illinois or Kenttiohy Its breadth Is about one-fifth of Its length, or 207 feet 4 Inches. Its displacement Is 4S.410 tons, whllo Its propelling foroe Is sup plied by eight turbine screws, expect ed to develop a speed of forty knots an hour. The Amcrlonn Hoy Is a doublo-lur-rcted seagolntf bat,tlehlp ot the first class. Her guns will lo tho most pow erful known to man. Tho first battery will Include four monster IC-lnoh guns, twelve 12-Inch and four 10-Inch ones. All of them, of courso, nro brcceh loading rifles. Tho secondary battery consists of two 12-Inch dynamlto guns nnd twonty 12-lnch mortnrs. Still a third group of cannon, called tho "tor tlary battory." Is composed of tho fol lowing formidable array. Twenty-8-Inch guns, olght 0-lneh guns, four 4-Inch rnpld-flro guns, 100 o-pounders, fifty 4-poundors, eight tubos for dis charge of aerial torpedoes,- olght tubes for submarine torpedoes, forty 1 pounders, sixteen Oatllug guns.

"Which romlnds me, gents," ho said, "that what I am about lo rclato to you Is a fact, n calm, cold fact, that I wouldn't think of telling you It It was anything else.

I'm a truthful man. nnd I know It was 36 feet 1 Inch short of thai, for I measured It mysolf. Well, to mnko a long story short, one day thoro was a man out to seo tlioanlno from Now Yoik to buy It. He hnd a rot of money, and ho looked like, ho carried It around under his vest, for ho was ns big through as n hnss drum and built on them proportions. 1 guess ho weighed 300 pounds, though It might have bten only 298. Anyhow, ho was standing around tho mouth of ho shaft one morning, and by somo chance or other ho toppled over and down he went. I was looking right at him when ho toppled, nnd I novor want to see another man's faeo look like his did then, gents, Indeed I don't. Not much. Woll, to make n long story start, we looked at onch other for a minute as he wci t down the I10I0. and then wo broke iur 'ho cage, whloh was faatencd up yet. and two of us start ed down niter him. expecting to find him n mangled mass at the bot tom. Hut wo didn't, and as wo began to near tho bottom wo hoard lilm yelling like n coyote to hold up or wo'd mash tho tlfo out ot him. That scared us worse than the other, nnd wo want ed to go hack, but wo couldn't do thnt, so we wont slaw and gut down to hlni all right.

Many a Chicago woman has won dered whether It la as dimwit to se cure saUflractory dernestle help In Mher cities as It Is at homo. Thoro is always a Rood demand for good tooto ami other household assistants nil there Is Just ivs eanllntiod nn over P)ly of girls desirous ot securing DMltlana In ftfijws and tors, and the myitery of this Is dark and Impone tpaMo to many a distracted matron. Perhaps the following oxprotsloit lrm nn Intelligent young woman who at present omployed In a largo Btnlo ttrcet establishment may throw somo light on the subject: "It la nil vory well to talk about prpj.idlce against domestic sertleo. but the wholo thing Is Just this: Working In n store Is business; In a kltekan It U drudgiry. In a store a girt has some ehaneo to do ssmotklug for herself. Hhe Is put behind n counter and told to sell goods, and she knows If she doen It woll or better than the others about her she Is likely to get her salary raised or get a better position In the storo. If a girl has plenty ot ambi tion nnd really Is a good saleswoman after n time sho may beeomo n buyer for the houio or even a drummer. What hns a girl In n kitchen to look forT If sho is a line cook sho will Just stay cook as long as sho stays with tho family and when she gcta out and wants another Job she has to start In as cook nonln. Another thing Is that tho girl in a storo Is responsible for her work to tho manager ot her depart ment and to nobody else. The girl In n kitchen has to please the wife, bus- j band, children, mint and any number of visitors who eomo around, and to plcaso half a doien pooplo of different tastes Is not an easy thing. Hosldce, 1 want my evenings to myself Instead of being stuck In n kitchen six nights out of sovon. Why, girls In this stors belong to musical clubs nnd soetals by the dozen, and there Is not one who would change to go into anybody's home. Ilesltles that, all girls like com pany, I gttess, and It there Is any prejudice about the matter It Is wttli the young men who routes to see the girls. You won't find many fellow who would go to see a 'girl who was a 'kitchen mechanic,' for thnt Is what thoy rail them. There Is mi ronton why a girl In a store cannot lumi as much company as sho pleases, as her work does not unfit hor for It. but it sho start to cook or tnko any other situation In a house sho will vory soon find thnt there are rontons enough why no young men will eomo to seo hor.
