tarolutlon-provoking catastrophe. To

At last the powers of Europe have
aaetaded that tbe United States Is one
aft the powers of the world, and it is
aattoanccd that at an early date the re
pahllr will be recognized by the other
af powers as a serenth world power.
C3dal recognition will not count for
for every man of perception has
known that the United States was
bout tbe first of the rank. But it does
hurt for tbe nations of E-urope to
semiofficially that they have
their eyes open.
i many quarters comes a demand

fart of our system of rewards for naval

apaa to criticism and even to denuncia

Kj bteas of war that have long been

that before our uavy ha any

these frequently fail to
warning, and the inevitable eollisloe
follows, finding the crew and passen
gers wholly unprepared. Sometimes
criminal negligence on the part of the
crew of one or both vessels is respon
sible for such disasters, and again it
may be due entirely to atmospheric
conditions which prevent ships from In
tercepting the tslguals, although other
TesselB much farther away may detect
them perfectly. This phenomenon has
lieen investigated by the German,
French and American governments, but
thus far no satisfactory explanation
has been presented that is generally ac
cepted. Failure to modify and improve
existing systems of signaling at sea
has led to tbe investigation and devel
opment of other methods, and, as might
be expected, the inquiring mind has in
stinctively turned to electricity to fur
nish a solution of the problem. When
Marconi submitted his plan of tele
graphing across space It was suggested
that it be applied to signaling between
ships at sea, but closer investigation
revealed many objections. One of these
has already been found to be very seri
ous by experience gained with present
methods namely, the dependence that
must be placed upon tbe watchfulness
of the crews of other ressels. In the
case of an iceberg or a wreck of course
no protection whatever would be afford
ed, and the destruction of the ship
might In a measure be due to the mis
taken sense of security in the presence
of danger. But the subject presents a
fascinating study, and many solutions
of the problem have been suggested.
One of the suggestions is now attract
ing conlsderable attention. It proposes
to utilize the principle of radiation, and
provides for the employment of instru
ments embodying the essential features
of the thermopile and the radiophone.
Warning would be given of the ap
proach of another vessel, of the pres
ence of a floating wreck or an Ice
berg or the vicinity of land itself, as
in each case, it Is claimed, there would
be a noticeable change in the tempera
ture, which would readily be detected
by the sensitive Instruments provided.
The suggestion will doubtless require
considerable elaboration and modifica
tion before It becomes a practicable
plan, and tbe gentleman who advances
It realizes that many Important factors
must be considered before It can be
adopted for actual service: but It cer
tainly Is entitled to some consideration,
especially In view of the fact that pres
ent methods have been shown to be
practically worthless in critical emergencies.

first time. W; had become soldiers to
march, Bght and kill. It was to be look
ed upon as a matter of business, as
well as a patriotic duty. The sooner
the strength of the enemy was exhaust
ed the sooner we would have peace.
We thought that every man in cotn
Danv U" had the same feeling to kill
but we bad not been long at the front
when we found an exception. A score
of skirmishers were ordered down In
front of the regiment to feel the
strength of tbe enemy in tbe fringe of
bushes along a creek, Ambrose Davis
was one of us. lie was a man of 30
a Dlain. every day man who had laid
down tbe tools of a mechanic to take
ud the musket of a soldier. He was not
given to enthusiasm, but he was an obe
dient soldier and the best shot in the
company. As we clambered over the
fence and took "open order" on the
broad field which dippd down to the
creek, the euemy In the fringe had a
dead rest on every man. War with
them also meant kill. To kill one of
half a million men means little, and yet
it means Will. Zip! Plug! Zip! It was

volleys into a battle line half hidden
In the smoke, but every bullet that came
Dinalur was meant for an Individual
We crouched down and ran forward.
We zlg-zagged to right and left We
took the shelter af every knoll, brush
and stump. The enemy bad to develop
his streneth to check us. In front of
Davis was an opening In the fr!n;e
a spot where a farm road crossed the
creek. The enemy to the right and left
of this road was using the bank of the
stream as a breastwork and we were
firing a good deal at random. An officer
suddenly appeared in the center of this
opening, and raising a pair of glasses
to his eyes he took a cool survey of the
regiment far back or us on the hill He
was within pistol shot of Davis and
he must have known It and yet be
stood there as cool and calm as you
please to take his chance. It was
sheer bravado. Four of our twenty had
been killed, and tbe enemy was seek
ing the lives of the rest I was to the
right of Davis and could have almost
bit tbe officer with a stone; the man
on his left had just as fair a target.
He was not our "game," however he
belonged to Davis. We saw our com
rade thrust forward a barrel of bis
musket and bring his eye down to the
sights. Then we watched the officer to
see him throw up bis bands and fall
Thlrtv seconds passed away, and we
glanced back at Davis. He had lifted
bis head and was looking at the officer
over his gun. At the end of a quarter
of a minute be dropped It again. It
was his duty to kill, but this was kill
ing in cold blood, and he had to bave
a few seconds to nerve himself up.
Back went our eyes to the officer. He
was slowly sweeping the glasses
scross a front of half a mile, and 1
wondered If he would drop them as
tbe bullet struck b'.m, or wbeiber his
fingers would clutch and bold them tbe
tighter. My heart came crowding Into
my throat as I watched and as tbe sec
onds passed, and at length I beard the
man os Davis' left shouting at bim:
"Shoot! Shoot! Why tbe devil don't
you -drop that officer?"
I turned to look at Davis, and as I
did so he slewed the muzzle of his gun
to the right and fired into tbe bushes.
A few seconds later the officer lowered'
bis glasses, and swinging tbem In bis
hands of the pale-faced and hesitating
corpora! he shouted out;
Hurry up, man, and tumble him out
of that before he can reload! If you
bring him down I'll ask your captain
to make a sergeant of you five minutes
Davis advanced to a stump a few
feet away and knelt down and sighted
his rifle across it We who knew his
marksmanship felt sure that his bullet
would speed true. He took a long aim.
and we were holding our breath to hear
the report of tbe rifle, when he drew
back, rose up and said:
"I I can't shoot that man"'
"Shoot bim-shoot him-why don t
some of you bring him down?"
His, words were beard by fifty men,
but not a gun was raised Tbe officer
was storming at us when Davis sud
denly lifted his musket and fired, and
the retreating man flung up his arms,
whirled about and sank down. Curses
and groans followed, and Davis threw
down his gun and hid his face in his
bands and aulabed.
"A splendid shot!" cried the officer,
"and If I were your captain you would
be a corporal to-morrow!"

Later In tbe day, when D.ivis' singular
action had been reported, the captain
said to blm:
"Davis, I can't believe you are a cow

skirmish line to be shot at but when
you had aa enemy fa.rly under your

you bring him down?"
"I was going to, sir, but I I
couldn't," was the reply.
"But tbey were shooting st you to
"Yes. I know."
Tbe captain could hardly reprimand
a man for not killing an enemy as be
would have shot down a rabbit, and
there was no one to hint that Davis
lacked courage. The Incident was for
gotten after a little, and such was the
soldiery conduct of the man that he
was made a corporal. When the enemy
withdrew behind the work at York
town to bar McC'lellan's roatl to Hicb
mond he covered his wings with
sharpshooters, and our ofllcers were
their special tarset One day. as three
companies of us were dragging op some

ed by a sharpshooter who was located
In a tree top. He could be plainly rnnde
out but the range was too far for our
army muskets. A Bt rdan rifle was sent
for. and when It arrived our captain

We saw nothing more of the "strange

which drove McClellan to make a
change of base. For half a day our reg
iment atood in battle line, waiting to at
tack or be attacked, and during this In
terval our company lost two men killed
and three wounded. It required all tbe
nerve tbe men could work up to stand
there and be shot at without firing a
shot In return, but Davis showed no
more nervousness than any of the rest
When at length we moved by tbe left
flunk for a quarter of a mile and then
dropped down to open fire and hold our
ground, Davis was the man on my left
and as 1 loaded my inunket I noticed
that he was firing high. Five minutes
later a lieutenant came creeping along
In rear of us aud warning each man to
aim low. I heard hlra cursing Davis,
and twice after that ere we fell back,
I saw the man firing luto tbe tree tops.
The enemy crowded us bxk day by
day and mile by mile, and there was
lighting over every fool of tan n:gn
wav. We had a fierce grapple at Fair
Oaks, and aguln at garage Station, bat
all 1 knew of Davie was that be wns
with us. It waa only when weturned at

self beaide him again. He bad been
three times grazed by buUef, ad t.hat

soldlefe work. Our regiment was sta

along In the bed of a dry creek, and the

of a nude woman in a perfect state of

to Fayettevllle, where it was measured
and weighed and viewed by hundreds
of people. The mold Is that of a rolup
tuoue woman, HY, feet high, and the
weight 215 pound. The features are

claimed could be easily recognized if
