How Far Can You Hour?
Somo experiments in judging dis
tance by sound were carried out on
Saturday last by one of the Ixmdon
brigades of the Metropolitan volun
tecrs. This branch of military tactics
is quito a new departuit) in volunteer
ing and one which, if it is to bo made
of service, will ivquiixi moro than an
ordinary amount of practice It was
(list explained to tho men that sound
travels at tho iiito of 1,100 yards in
tlneo seconds, and on this basis they
wero to estimate tho dhtaucc at which
some rillcs were being discharged in
the darkness. Tho answers nl first
wero very wide of tho mark, some of
tho men being as much as 150 yards
out in their calculation. With a lit
tlo practice, however, a great improve
ment was shown, many of tlm men
guessing tho distance exactly. I am
told, however, that the expeiiinenU
no not as satisfactory as was hoped,
and it is thought some time must
ilup.se before judging distanco by
lound can be relied upon with any
