A clever Brooklyn girl, who was by no means as UEEOjihistiented in naval mat ters ab she appeared to be, va. pitoted over one of the Cffhtinsr tJiips nt tha navy yard a few months ago by a young ensign, who made the most of his op portunity. He told her how deadly the Isrpedufs were, nud he thought it 110 harm to double their effectiveness in the tilling. "When ere of these torpedoes ex plodes," said the ensign, wisely, "it kills all the fish within a radius of hajf a mile, Jiud frequently its force is so great that the bottom of the sea is laid bare." "How very interesting," said the Brooklyn pirl, "and I suppose you have seen the bottom of the sta frequently." "Well, you see, 1 er-er, I have never been detailed for torpedo practice," said the easig-n evasively. The ecfijjn told the Brooklyn girl that the six-:nc-h guns on board were constructed on the prin ciple which is so beautifully illustrated by the baseball pitcher, and that they could be gauged to throw any kind of a curve. "That must be a great aJvantage," staid the girl.thoiightfully. "Indeed it is," said the ensign. "It permits all of our guns to go into action at the same time. When, for instance, the starboard guns get the ran&e and begin liri r.g, the captain pastes the w ord to the gunners on the port side: 'Get on to your curves.' This well-known or der, by the way, is the original of the now-current slang expression." "What happens then?" akcd the Brooklyn girl, anxiously. "Then," continued the ensign, thoughtfully, "the best mathematician on the ship is assigned to calculate the curves. That is my duty now. The curve calculator, knowing the range given to the starboard gur.s, calculates the curve and range for each port g.in, and the gunners gauge according to it. Thus, you see, while the starboard guns ore firing straight at the enemy the port gun are throwing projectiles in a curve around the bow and stern of the ship." "Hut if these projectiles are not stopped in their course, isn't there dan ger that tbey may complete the circle and come back and hit the ship?" asked the Brooklyn girl. "That all depends on the curve cal- Cki.iS.or. fa.'! tat c-ns.sa. r.rr.udlv.

J!e escort. ! the Brooklyn girl about the dvc-k, ami su.Menl.v rtic &;iw a CLirp.iii-idii 0:: the ilab-.h:p, which was anchored about COO yards away. A sailor was waving a flag back acd forth, and a man on the ensign's ship seemed to be watching it with interest. 'What ore these two men doing?" she asked. "They are wigwagging.' "Dear me, is that a form of naval puni shment?" "Xo, indeed," said the ensign; "that ship over there is the admiral's flagship, and the man who Is waving a flag is sending an important order from the admiral to this ship." "Can you read it?" uslced the girl. "It is too late to catch the full order now," said the ensign, "but we will hear the signalman report it to the officer of the deck. It may bean order to prepare for war at once." The Brooklyn girl tried hard to look impressed by this martial suggestion as she accompanied the ensign to where the olYicer of the deck was standing. The signalman had completed the mes sage, and coming to the officer of the deck, be stopped, saluted, and said: "An order from the flagship, sir." "What is it?" 6aid the officer, ac knowledging the salute. "Scrub hi discretion, sir," said the signalman, and, saluting, he walked sway. The ensign's expression was blank, and the Brooklyn girl laughed. "Thank you very much for your kind ness," she said. "I know that, after that order from the admiral, you, as official curve calculator, will have work to do, so I will join my friends ashore." This ensign has been suspicious of in genuous Brooklyn girls who have since visited his ship, nnd he has congrat ulated himself that the wardroom mess knew nothing about the incident. N. Y. Sun. .,,1- Tapioca Soap. When one quart of white stock has been brought to the boil in a saucepan, sprinkle in gradually one and a half tablespoonfuls of tapioca, previously roughly crushed, and stir for perhaps ten minutes until the tapioca begins to clear. Now mix the yolks of four eggs into one gill of cream, and pour the stock upon these, stirring briskly dur ing the process. When duly amalga mated, return all to the saucepan again, and cook over a gentle heat for a few minutes. Then serve immediately; should the soup Eeem too thick, add a little more cream to thin.

CARTRIDGES IN SILK. A Nnmhcr of Very Excellent Improve ments Miuto In tlie Maxim Gait. Hiram Maxim recently informed a Buily Mail representative that the British government h:i given his firm an order for their new guns, which have a greatly increased firing speed and 50 per cent, more penetrating power than those hitherto constructed. The United- States had already or dered from Messrs. Viekers' Sons & Moxiin a large number of thtse 12-inch giM-.s, ar.d iu reference to this Mr. Maxim said: "This last order is being sup plied entirely by our factories in Amer icn. on account of the neutrality laws, F. hieli would prevent the weapons being shipped if made at the firm's works in She -me id. "We have made," said Mr. Maxim, "a good many 6-inch and 12-inch guns for the British government, but these were mode from government upccifieations, uMCjr government mechanism, but upon showing the government officials some thing better we have been given large orders for guns made with our improved mechanism, and this work is being executed at the present moment. "The statement that our 12-inch gun fires at the rate of three shots a min ute," he continued, "is substantially true. This, however, does not mean the that it can be steadily fired at that rate. It might be done for the first minute, commencing with the gun loaded. One thing you can rely upon, and that is that our 13-inch and 6-inch guns are superior to any guns that have yet been invented, both in power and in rate of firing. Any nation using our new high-power 0-inch and 12-inch guns can rest secure that they will never encounter anything that will choot faster or with ary greater penetrating power. "Xhe chief features in the new gun are an improved breech-block and the substitution of an asbestos case for the metal cartridge formerly used. The usual breech-block requires several turns to hold it safely in position after the charge has been inserted. This loss of time is obviated by a mechanical al teration that gives the same solidity with but a single twist of the block. The cordite and projectiles are held together in a silk lining, incased in asbestos, thus saving weight and magazine room. "The day the new 6-inch gun was tried nt Portsmouth the perforation Im pii.''l. according to Trt'S-if'rV-r's formula, wss 22.7 h.ches of iron, the ptvato.'-l per foration laid d.rwn in the tcrvice tablt fi r a 6-ir.ch gun bcii.c 35.0 oi iron. The rr.t.- of fire rnrm.tained by tlii gmi, at a subsequent 'rial, at Shc-btiryness, was 46 rounds la four minutes 47 K"eortl.i, .which was equal to a shot every eight seconds, or, allowing for cooling, 100 shots in 15 minutes." Chicago Journal. ANCIENT CUBAN ATROCITIES. Over Populous Districts Were Thinned Oat by the Host Brutal Bntcaertc. On one occasion the queen of a too populous district was invited to visit the camp cf Gov. (Sen. Ovando to wit ness a tilting match of the Spanish cavalry, and appeared with 78 caciques, or tributary chieftains, followed by a vast multitude of flower-crowned sight seers. At noon all were assembled, upon which," savs the chronicle of Valcarras, "Ovando gave a signal; and instantly the horsemen rush into the midst of the naked and defenseless throng, trampling them under foot, cutting them down with their swords, and eparir.g neither age nor sex. The caciques, assembled in one of the prin cipal houses, were bound to the posts which supported the roof and put to cruel tortures, until, in the extremity of their anguish, they were made to admit the truth of all and any charges, and a horrible punishment was in flicted on the spot; fire was set to the house and they all perished miserably in the flames. Fugitives were hunted down with bloodhounds. In addition to slave dealers, slave trainers, and slave task masters, the planters employed a com mittee of man-hunters who trained a breed of ferocious hounds for the es pecial purpose of recapturing de serters, who were generally dragged back to their owners and knotted to death in the presence of their fellow captives as an example m terrorcm.
