ROAR OF BIG GUNS.
The Effect Upon the Nerves and the
Sense of Hearing.
One of the penalties attendant on
firing off big guns is deafness. So
sure is this penalty- to be exacted that,
it is asserted, no man can go through
a long series of gunnery practice with
out having his hearing affected. A
stranger on deck who hears a big gun
speak for the first time will not soon
forget the stunning report.
One gun is enough to startle n stran
ger, but the shattering effect of the
whole armament when in action to
gether can hardly be conceived. The
strain upon nerves andenses when the
rending concussion takes place is ter
rible. There is not a great difference lie
tween the effect of the big guns and
that of the smaller pieces, strange as
It may seem. If the visitor places
himself beside one of the smaller guns
and then listens to the roar of the big
one, the sound will not appear much
louder than that of the gun by his side.
The extra distance to the muzzle of
the big piece discounts the sound. The
only apparent difference between the
two will Imj that the smaller piece has
a sharper, higher pitched tone, and
that the big guns speak with a more
If one watches the firing of the gun

prived of his favorite? How could he
travel without his pair of reindeer
harnessed to his sledge?
The reindeer has large black hoofs,
behind which are false or secondary
hoofs: the result is that when running
they make a clattering sound, which
may be heard a good distance away.
The reindeer has much endurance and
takes n long Journey without seeming
tired, though It Is only about four and
a half feet in height and not very
strong. Its horns are long and slender,
with branched, rounded antlers, but
they are not much used in combat. like
those of some other deer.
The largest reindeer are found where
the weather Is coldest, and their color
Is lighter. Usually It is brown and
white, but In the case of old animals
the hair Is sometimes quite white.
From the skin of the reindeer the Lap
landers get not only their clothes, but
also bedding and tents; the milk Is
drunk and made into cheese and the
flesh Is also good to eat, the tongue
and haunches being particularly liked.
