the country are to make a choice o
which of these forces shall load then

HISTORY OF THE ANCHOR.
Viirloun liiiiro\i'iii < 'iil * Tltul llnvi-

The ships' anchors in gpiicrnl mud up
to the beginning of I ho hint century
consisted of a long , round Irnu shank ,
having two coinparatlvply short ,
straight arms or lluUcs , Inrllnrd ( o the
shank at an angle of about It ) dpgives
and moctlng It In a somewhat sharp
point at the crown. In large aiipliorH
the bulky wooden slock was built up
of several pieces , hooped together , the
whole tapering outward to the ends ,
especially on the , ift or cable side.
About Hie beginning of the last cen
tury a clerk In the Plymouth naval
yard , I'erlng by name , suggested cer
tain Improvements , the most Important
of which was making the arms curved
Instead of straight. At llrst sight this
simple change may scorn uf little value ,
lint consideration will show that this Is
not the case. The holding power of an
anchor depends on two principal con
ditions miiiiL'ly , the extent of useful
holding surface and the amount of
vertical penetration. The hitter qual
ity Is necessary on account of the na
ture of ordinary sea bottoms , the sur
face layers of which arc generally less
tenacious and resisting than Is the
ground a short distance below.
In the year ISItl chain cables began
to mipcrscdo the hempen ones. With
the result that the long shanked an
chors hitherto In vogue were no longer
necessary , ami anchors with shorter
shanks nnd with heavier and stronger
crowns gradually came Into use. In
consequence of these changes a com
mission was appointed In the year 18118
to Inquire Into the holding power of an
chors , and a principal result of Its la
bors wan the adoption of the so called
ai'.mlralty pattern anchor , which con
tinued to be used In the navy up to the
year IStiO. The Invention of the steam
hammer In 18IU made the welding of
heavy masses of Iron u coinparatlvply
easy and rellnlilc process , so that from
this time onward the strength of an
chors fully kept pace with that of the
chain cables which had come Into gen
A number of patents for anchors
were taken out prior to the great ex
hibition of 1ST)1 , and. public attention
having been called to the models there
shown , In the following year a commit
tee was appointed by the admiralty to
report on the qualifications of anchors
of the various kinds. Practical trials
were then Instituted , nnd as n result
Trotmnn's anchor took the highest
placp , Rodger's anchor being second
on the list. Some of xthe tests to which
the anchors were submitted were of
doubtful value , such , for instance , as
"facility for sweeping , " Nowadays ,
however , nt all events for deep ships
in shallow harbors , It Is considered an
advantage for nn anchor to offer ns lit
tle obstruction ns possible above the
ground. Science Slftlnga.
Judge Shaw in his latter days wns
reverenced by the people of Mnssn-

in his nntlvo county of Harnstablo ho
was reverenced as a god. One winter

session at Harnstablo for the trial of n
capital case Judge Merrick , who wns
one of the Judges , caiuo out of the
courthouse just nt nightfall , when the

"Judge Mprrlck , how thankful you

The Norfolk Daily News.
An Up-toDate Newspaper for
Six months ago The News was what
s known In the parlance of the craft
as a strictly local newspaper , with
tut n limited circulation outsldo the
city of Norfolk. While it thoroughly
covered the locnl Hold , it paid little
Utcntlon to telegraphic news nnd
consequently wns not of general In
terest outside of this city. During
tlio past half year The News hns boon
iromotcd to an entirely different class ,
mil the claim Is made good that it is
i newspaper in the strictest sense of
the word. Willie the locnl field is
still thoroughly covered , the specinl
.olegrnphic service which wns Innug-
irnted early In the summer nnd hns
since been augmented by an up-to-
late market report and 'n service by
telephone covering the whole north
ern part of the state , makes It the
paper to bo rolled upon for the very
latest news throughout this part of
The 0110 o'clock edition which was
inaugurated a i'ow weeks ago , con
tains the morning market reports
from Chicago and South Omaha up
till the hour of going to press. It also
contains all the important news that
Is gathered from north Nebraska
during the morning by wire , a full
associated press report in abbreviated
form covering the night service and
the latest telegraphic matter from all
over the world up till the minute the
forms are locked.
This makes a service for the lines
out of Norfolk with which no news
paper can compete. Norfolk Is the
hub of a geographical wheel. Five
railroads radiate from this center and
on every line is an afternoon train
which carries the first edition of the
paper to its readers. On the same
trains north and west are carried the
morning papers from other cities so
that The News is given an advantage
of about ten hours In telegraph mat-
tor. The man in Bonestccl or In No-
Ugh gets his stock market and grain
reports for today early in the after
noon and is-ablo to ship accordingly.
The morning paper brings him only
yesterday's report And the morning
telegraphic matter is ahead of any
thing that the people east as far as
Fremont , northeast to Sioux City and
south to Columbus are able to get
until the evening papers get to them
The flvo o'clock edition Is for the
city circulation nnd for the rural
routes. It contains telegraphic matter -
tor received up till the hour of press
from nil over the world. It Is prac
tically four hours later than any other
evening paper which can roach the
city and it contains the same news ,
largely , which Is published in the
morning editions of outside papers
next day. " /
Another feature of the progress
made is in the circulation among the v
rural route people. Today the farmer '
has as ninny ndvnntngos ns anyone
In the city. Ho hns his telephone , his
daily mall service and all the rest.
Ho can enjoy his dally paper just as
much as his literary brother who hns
lived in town all his llfo and what's
more ho can afford it today where
dozens In town might not.
The result of the development by
The News Is that it has como to bo
recognized everywhere in its territory
as the latest newspaper and'ono ox-
elusive in Its matter. It is read by
everyone of any prominence in all
of the towns that it visits nnd when
once they have rend it they are friends
always because it Is clean , up-to-tho-
minute and reliable.
To the advertisers , on this account ,
the paper Is much more valuable than
It ever could have been boforo. It
covers practically three fields , the
ctly , the rural routes and the outside
towns very thoroughly. Just such an
advertising medium has long been ,
needed by many business houses in
Norfolk nnd the results show that it
Is perfectly practical.

Tells of His Experience Thus
M. Nichols of Foster , the well
known stockman , xas in Norfolk
Thursday morning on business. "I
am Immensely pleased , " said Mr.
Nichols , "with the service wo are
now getting in The News : The 1
o'clock edition reaches me at about
2 o'clock and gives all of the tele
graphic news up till that hour. Al
ready the market reports , which are
twenty-four hours later than I can
possibly get In any other paper , have
saved me a good many times. It is
the finest feature in up-to-the-hour
news service that we have ever been
able to get. People all up the line
feel the same way about it , too. "
