WIGWAGGING ON SHIPBOARD.
Brooklyn Girl Applies) a Signal to
the War Vessel's Carve
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
"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
"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
"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-

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
"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
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.

CARTRIDGES IN SILK.
A Nnmhcr of Very Excellent Improve
ments Miuto In tlie
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
"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.

Over Populous Districts Were Thinned
Oat by the Host Brutal
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

breed of ferocious hounds for the es

back to their owners and knotted to
