neither bullets nor shot were used In the

of General Corbln during his stay In the
, "It Is as necessary for the men to be
drilled In these maneuvers as to be drilled
In the uee of arms," said General Mander
aon. "All European countries have these
campaigns, for they train officers and men
In the maneuvering of the field, and besides
their value from a atragello and military
vlewpptnt they are necessary for the sani
tary and disciplinary education afforded."
With a large map of the country covered
by the troops In their recent campaign.
General Manderson showed how the mock
battles were fought. Contrary to the Im
pression of those who do not understand
how the victories of a ahotless battle are
accomplished, there is no make-believe
mowing down Of soldiers and the battlefield
Is dot strewn with the sham dead. - It
means, however, a great deal of hard work,
and whether marching ankle deep In the
dust, whether . wading some obstructing
stream or whether sleeping under the stars

Cannot Decide av Battle.
- ""How do you decide that a battle actu
ally haa beeq lost or won?" was asked.
.."Well, we can't decide that," was the
reply. "We cannot aay of course say what
troop would do If they were under au
tual fire. We can on y judge from the po
sitions held by the troops what the result
would naturally be under actual engage
ment, assuming at all time of course that
the morale of the troop 1 good and that
they will stand fire."
General Manderson, in another Illustra
tion along the same lines, explained how
General Grant had placed his troop while
parrying out one of the recent military
problems. Grant strengthened his left
flank ' and oenter under the supposition
that tha brunt of General Bell's attack
would be there. Bell made a 4etnt to at
tack these point by sending a small por
tion of the army forward to open lire,
he main force attacked the right flank
and by surrounding battery after battery
and regiment after regiment, secured a
position which in actual warfare, eould
have resulted only in disaster and defeat
to Grant's force. At noonwhen this bat

Autos Good Thin;.
General Manderson spoke In high praise
of the value of the automobile in military
operations, not only for bringing up am
munition and other supplies, but in other
work where great celerity Is needed, as in
the destruction of bridges and railroads,
the work which was formerly left to the
General Manderson referred to the mani
fest lack of progress In the east Although
the maneuvers were within a compara
tively short distance of Washington, the
national capital, the roads he described as
ome of the worst he has ever seen. They
have apparently not been touched In thirty
years. The farms also show lack of en
ergy and care. He attributes a large share
of this lack of enterprise to the fact of the
poorer productive quality of the eastern
farm and the natural emigration of en
ergetic eastern people to the west, where
the opportunities and chances of develop
ment are broader.

CRIME DRIVES HIM INSANE
Shooting; of Mike Hart Confesaed by
John Morlcy After Seven
Chief of Police Briggs of South Omaha
returned yesterday from Coffeyvllle,
Kan., having in custody John Morley, who
confessed to having shot Mike Hart about
seven years ago, Hart having died of the
wound. After giving himself up to the
police at Coffeyvllle, Morley made, a con
fession and said the shooting had worried
him so much he could not sleep.
At the time Morley gave himself up the
polios at Coffeyvllle thought he was de
mented. Chief Brlgga says, when talking
on any other subject than the shooting,
Morley appears rational enough. When the
shooting Is brought up Morley talks like a
person not In hi right mind. Morleyt tells
practically the same story here that he
told the police at Coffeyvllle. Since th
shooting he ha wandered all over the
country, trying to forget the affair, but It
preyed on hi mind to such an extent that
he. imagined every man he met was a po

DOG SAVES MAN FROM DEATH
Watchful Canine Attracts Attention
to Stranger, Who Is Rescued
. Lee Grler, clerk of the police court, and
Albert V. Koos, neighbors, at 606 and 601
South Eighteenth street, have reported an
apparent attempt at suicide in the rear of
the Koos lot Thursday evening about I
o'clock. Mrs. Kooswas attracted by the
barking of a dog, and called her husband,
who went, with Mr. Grier, to investigate,
Through the partially lighted' gloom of the
back yard they could see the form of a man
writhing In agony. The stranger gave his
name as John Clark, said he had been In
Omaha but a few days, and had become
despondent from suffering general bad luck,
Beside him was a four-ounce bottle of chlo
roform, and an outspread handkerchief

HEAVY MOVEMENT WESTWARD
Large Traffic to Pnclfle Coast Under
the Colonist Rates Just
v Pnt In.
Not since the Knights Templar went west
have the Burlington and Union stations
presented such an animated appearance at
train time as yesterday. Nearly all the
westbound trains had extra tourist cars,
and there was a large movement of persons
bound for the ooast The unusual activity
Is attributed to the colonists' rates, which
went into effect Thursday. The rate ot $26
to the coast is being seized by hundreds of
people. Some of the travelers are home
seekers and others are taking advantage of
the rate to make long-deferred visits. The
farthest point reached by the fare Is Los
Angeles, Portland being the next longest
point. Over 2,000 miles are possible on one
of these tickets trom Omaha.

FOR A NOISELESS TYPEWRITER
Manufacturers Hope to Reduce the
Present Racket by Three
Quarters. Th '. noiseless typewriter Is something th
expei i-- :eNnow working on, and they hope
to ve machines that will do the work
with i quarter of the noise.
"Iu this strenuous age," said a manufac
turer of typewriters, "everything that
makes noise is tabooed In offices and other
places where men and women use their
bialns more than their bodies. Every lit
tle sound causes irritation.
"It, has been found that there is much
complaint against the typewriting ma-
j chine. Its clicking, the din of the busy
keys, disturbs the heads of firms, even
though they shut the doors to their pri
vate offices tight and sometimes even stuff
cotton In the keyholes. Then, too, It inter
feres with conversation by telephone.
"In the stress of business this little ait'
noyance caused by the typewriter adds Just
one more element to Increase the fatigue
Incident to the day's work.
"We are experimenting with a machine
that we think will fill the need for a noise
less typewriter. It is almost encased In
rubber, and the sound is muffled by sev
eral Ingenious devices.
"We now and then make machines to or
der for nervous customers, who have
worked on Ideas of their, own for getting
rid of the typewriter din. We have made
a few machines encased in glass, with
levers protruding under the glass to move
the carriage, adjust' the paper, etc.' New
GULLS CROSS THE PACIFIC
Follow In the Wnke of Transports
nnd Get the Crumbs Throws)
W are proud of our great ocean liner
and the spfed that they make, a speed
which has made foreign countries ridicu
lously near and has brought the nations
close together. To the people of 100 year
ago the story that a vsssel oould cross
the broad Paclflo within a month would
reem like the sheerest fancy of a romancer.
Yet, at that time sea gulls existed as they
do at the present duy and they made their
long trips without provoking any especial
comment. Today It is looked upon as noth
ing very marvelous thitt birds are able to
fly from America to Asia and back again.
But, If we pause to consider It, the feat Is
really something after all.
These birds are especially fond of the
United States army transports, for these
ship carry many men, who, denied the
taste for books which renders an ocean
Journey less tedious antT having limited
facilities for deck sport, take to feeding
the gulls as a pastime. When one of tha
big vessels leaves the Golden Gate and
passes the Faaallone Islands 100 or more
brown bodies with long, sweeping wings
leave their resting place and take up the
flight In the wake of the transport.
Then, soms soldier who ha made the trip
before aays: "Here come the sea gulls.
We'd better feed them If we want a quick
passage this trip," and many soldlsrs In
vade th steward's premises and gutter up
ths waste bread and victuals.
The birds seem to know when they are
to be fed, for they come flying In ever
narrowing circles until they are within a
short oistsnce of the ship. Then the food
begins to fall pn the water and the brown
winged form swoop eagerly down upon
the waves and seise what ha been thrown
forth. This 1 continued until ths food Is

exhausted and then the soldiers go below,
leaving the gulls to get away with their
food as they fly. They never seem to rest,
these queers birds. Day after day they,
follow the ship, cleaving the air with wift
wings, flying easily fcnd without apparent
effort Indeed, it seems as though they
were not made to rest
On the last trip of the transport Logan
one of the gulls had Its wing muscle In
jured In some way and dropped fluttering
upon the deck, Its wide, goose-like bill open
and strange squawks coming from Its
throat. A soldier spied it and took It to
his bunk, where he fed It dully until It
became strong again. Then he allowed It
to fly away. But the bird had not forgot
ten his benefactor. Every day It would
alight on the deck and allow none save this
particular man to feed it It followed the
boat to Honolulu, to Guam and finally to
Manila. Where It rested during th two
weeks the Logan lay In Manila la not
known, but when the vessel turned oh Its
homeward course, bound for Nagasaki, the
first day out found' this gull easily dis
tinguishable by a fleck of white en its
neck, resting on the stern. . As it favorite
solller did not appear, the gull graciously
allowed others to-feed it, and continued.
It trip with the ship until th Logan
passed the Farallon Islands.
A peculiar Incident was one that oc
curred on the R. M. S. Athenian on Its
last trip from Yokohama to Vancouver.
Five day out, 1.000 miles from land in
any direction, a little owlet alighted on
the deck and was captured by the second ,
steward. It was a baby owl, a little bundle
of hrown and white feathers, and It blinked
Its eyes in the daylight us It rosted con
tentedly In the cage which the steward pro
vided. Pan Francisco Chronicle.
