Mr. Clark has been for several years In
the government ei !oy as an Inspector of
construction. Sevcrul of the most Impor
tant lighthouses of our coast have been
built under his supervision, the latest of
these being the structure recently erected
tin the Graves.
The Pilgrim monument. In Its manner, of
construction, closely resembles the govern
ment methods followed In that splendid
The foundation, which was laid last sum
mer, la thirteen feet In depth and sixty feet
square at the base, built of concrete and
reinforced with twlated steel. Vpon the
northeast corner of this missive foundation
the cornerstone was laid last August.
On the 18th day of June last the active
work of the erection of the monument was
begun, the first stone after the corner
stone being laid In the presence of the
president and several of the officials of the
monument association.
Ttie stones are hewn, squared and num
bered In the quarries, conveyed from the
Maine coast to Provlncetown In floats and
drawn to the summit of Town hill over a
temporary railway running up the steep
aide of the eminence. The motive power
Is a stationary engine at the summit.
Each stone as laid Is of the entire thick
ness of the wall, carefully hammered on
top and bottom, for bearing surfaces, and
laid In Portland cement. The exposed sur
faces are left rough, with a surface known
as "quarry face," which serves to give a
more massive and rugged appearance than
If hammered smooth, after the manner of
the monument on Bunker hill. The stones
vary In estimated weight from two to six ot
eight tons.
At each corner of the structure, as It
rises, Is built a tiny upright chamber,
through which arise throughout the height
ot the structure a series of rods of twisted
steel, surrounded with cement, each rod
having a tensile strength of 60,000 pounds
to the Inch.
These rods are firmly imbedded In the
concrete foundation and will rise to the
very summit, adding Immensely to the al
ready great structural strength of the
Just without the structure . Is a rough
pine box, which Is the cover of a point,
upon which the foundation Is given a
weekly scientific test as the construction of
the monument proceeds. The slightest
variation In the foundation, the faintest
Indication of unequal settling, would thus
be Instantly detected.
An Interesting feature of the monument
Is the series of memorial stones, some
twenty or more, and which have already
been placed In position in the monument,
when completed will be furnished with a
gradually arising Inclined plane. In place of
a stairway, by means of which the summit
will be easily reached. From It, as the vis
itor ascends, the Inscriptions upon the me
morial stones will be easily read.
The first of these stones which were
placed In position were those contributed
, jy the various state societies of Mayflower
Stones of the societies of Rhode Island,
Maine, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan and
New Jersey appear, but no stone appears
to have been furnished by the Massachu
setts society.
Stones have already been placed from
the battlefield of Concord, from nearly all
of the rape towns, and stones contributed
by the grand lodge of Masons In Massa
chusetts, the Ancient and Honorable Artil
lery company, the Scots Charitable society
and the Pilgrim club of Brewster, In which
organization originated the idea of the mon
ument. Rather more than 100 of these
stones have been contributed, the majority
being the gifts of towns In eastern Massa
chusetts. Some stones of remarkable Interest will
find place In the wall. One of these was
contributed by the church wardens and
sidesmen of the-ancient church at Auster-
fleld, England. The stone was cut from
the churh yard wall, immediately In front
of the main porch, .v.iother stone of in
terest Is from Leyden, the Dutch home of
the Pilgrim company. Still another Is from
the pavement of the porch- of the church
at Ijjlftshaven, in which religious services
were held by the Pilgrims previous to em
barkation. But perhaps the most Interesting relic of
Pilgrim history which will find place In the
monument Is a collection of about 100 an
cient pavement bricks contributed by the
municipality of ' Delftshaven and taken
from the wharf at that place, whence the'
expedition set sail. These bricks are truly
ancient in appearance and may very well

from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Every Saturday night Washburn has been

by check where payment was desired. The
crush was so great last Saturday night
that it has been decided to Issue statements
monthly in future.

us praise for our good shooting and did
not indicate In any way that they realised
how absurd their conduct had been In
the first case. If Admiral Bunce had not
drilled us as he did, I feel sure the battle
of Santiago would not have been the clean
cut, businesslike Job It was. One naval of

fore a committee of congress that our
shooting at Santiago was disgraceful. If
we can Judge by results this officer was
clearly wrong In the impression he tried
to convey In fact, did convey to the

Uncle Sam's Gunners Show Remark
able Advance tn Skill In
Ten Years.
During the year 1896 and part of 1897,,
Rear Admiral Bunce, then commanding
the 'North Atlantic squadron of the Ameri
can navy, undertook systematic target, prac
tice for the first time in our navy with
modern hlghpowered guns and torpedoes.
He was fully aware, as most of us seugolng
officers were, that our hitting power with
guns was far from satisfactory and the
torpedoes were even worse, and he pro
ceeded to Improve it as far as he could.
The first practice was held on what was
known as the Northern drill ground off
the coast of New Jersey and was In every
way a departure from the methods previ
ously followed. A target was moored,
ships anchored to mark the shots, and each
ship in turn ran along the base of the tri
angle opposite the target and fired as
rapidly as it could for a period of about
six minutes. I commanded the Indiana,
our first battleship at the time, and the
fire of Its battery was wstched with in
tense interest. Our thirteen-lnch guns
were fired, each of them, once In three
minutes and we occasionally put a shell
through the target. The six-Inch guns
fired about three shots per minute and
the slx-pounders six to eight shots. At
our last practice in 1908 the thirteen-lnch
guns averaged, nearly two hits on the tar-'
get per minute not, you will observe, two
shots only, but two hits; the six-Inch guns
went as high as twelve hits per minute,
though the average la much below that.
The record for slx-pounders ran up as
high as twenty hits per minute. I state
all this to show how we have advanced
In accuracy and rapidity of fire since
Admiral Bunce started us In the right di
rection. The result of this first practice was
surprising. Some enterprising newspaper
man found out the cost of the ammunition
we had expended, and hla paper, Joined by
a number of others, gave us a fine line
of abuse for wasting the money of the tax
payers and firing away ammunition we
might some day need; the Spanish war
came a few months later and we were

Courage of His Claim,
The Diamond Fields Advertiser, referring
to the litluious nature of the natives of
South Africa, gives the following as an in
stance: "A native had fought und lost at
action In the magistrate's court In one o
the small towns In Grlqualand Kaat, the
articles In dispute being a slate and an
alphabetical primer of the total value of 6
pence. He immediately after the JudKment
was sjlven against him, started on a Journey
on foot to the chief town, about thirty
miles distant, In order to Instruct an attor
ney there to appeal from the judgment
given. The uttorney laughed at the man
and told him he should desist, as he would
only be wasting his money over a trivial
matter, but he tendered the costs of the
appeal to the attorney and insisted, other
wise he would consult another lawyer.
After a long consultation and endeavor to
advise his client to act as was thought best,
the attorney complied with the native's
wishes. The native won his appeal."
Law Clerks Must Know Exact Shade
of Mesnlna In Word and
1'h rases..
"Some people seem to think that an
important legal document can be drawn
up by a lawyer In the time It takes his
client to smoke a cigar," remarked a
gray-haired law clerk the other day. "It
takes time and the moat scrupulous care
to get things Just right. If lawyers were
not careful, the Lord only knows where
the clients would land.
"Why, I know a man In one of the
great law offices who is a specialist in
the exact shade of meaning of each word
or phrase used in a legal document.
Nothing goes out of that office without
being submitted firs to him to pans upon.
Sometimes he will give a week to the
study of - but one short, but very Im
portant, paper, theorizing as to the possi
bilities of its meaning being curst iimi
this way or that. When he gets through
with a document, however, and has sub
mitted every word of it to the acid test,
there is practically no chance of its not
being exactly light as to its verbiage ut
least. In some cases, too, It In deemed
desirable by clients to becloud the mean
ing of a contract so that there is a loop
hole for its being construed In another
way In the event of certain contingencies
occurring. That is where the services
of an expert word Juggler are Indispensa

in this line was a few months ago. when
one of the great corporation wished to
issue some mortgage bonds against its
property. A long contract had to be
drawn and the wording on the back of
the bond had to be decided upon. The
matter was so Important thnt, alter the
attorneys themselves had decMed on the
forms to be used, it was turned over to
two of these experts In verblaxe

final form of the papers that had not

Individual relation to the other words of
