of modern rifies and artillery, the loss

the losses in the days of the battle
ax and the longbow. In the sixteen
hours' strusgle against Russian artil
lery at Xanshan the Japanese lost
only 4.000 men out of CO.oou. and of
these only 750 were killed. At Coleu-
so in the Boer war the British losses
were only 1.100 out of 25.000.
Compare this, for example, with the
battle of Agincourt in 1415. Fourteen"

The battle of Santiago, according
to Admiral Schley, was at 1.000 yards.
But the battle of Aug. 10. when Togo
wiped out the fighting value of the
Russians, was apparently at two or
three miles. Togo's gunners could hit
fairly often at that distance. The
, Russian gunners could not.
It is therefore plain that naval gun-
ners must learn to shoot straight not
I only at short distances but also at
long distances. The way to learn to
do this is to practice at targets.

ON TRAIL OF KIDNAPER.
New York Police Report Prcg
Italian detectives think they have
truck the trail of Vlto Laducca, who
is believed to have in his. custody the
kidnaped boy, Tony Mannino, who
was stolen from his parents at New

Magistrate TIghe instructed Detective
Vachris-to bring in dead or alive.
The discovery of the trail of the
man who is believed to be at the
head of the gang that carried off the
Mannino boy came at the end of a
day that had been absolutely fruitless
of results to the police.
Baffled at every turn by the craft
of the kidnapers, Capt. Rooney de
clared wearily that he did not know
whether the child was alive or dead,
or that he would be any more sur

his dead body being found where it
had been thrown by the gang after
having wreaked its vengeance.

Big Life Insurance Policies.
According to the best obtainable
records two men in the United States
carry more than $1,500,000 life insur
ance. Eight carry 11.000.000 more. In
the $900,000 class is found one. In the
$700,000 class are found eight. The
$600,000 group has a membership of
three. The $300,000 list includes the
names of twenty-seven. Adding to
gether the above classes, it is noted
that there are forty-nine individuals
carrying $300,000 or more of insur
ance, the total sum insured reaching
the amazing figure of $26,000,000.
Musicians of Same Name.
Never was there worse confusion
caused by similarity of names than
between Strauss, the tone poet, and
Strauss, the composer of the cele
brated "Blue Danube" and many other
waltzes. What makes the muddle
more amusing is the fact that the two
Strausses are quite intimate with one
another, and when the tone poet is
congratulated as he often is on the
success of the waltzes he did not
write, he at once sits down and hu
morously relates his experiences in a
letter to his friend.

standing of Mrs. Soandso. "A very

The society leader froze slightly as
she answered, "Thoroughly respect

rersisted: "Yes. dear Mrs. Blank, but
you know what I mean. Who is she?"
The leader's nostrils quivered for a
moment and then she answered cooly:

who she is than I could have told

One day the father was called to the

some time to collect it from his

the telegram he found it contained
