a maximum i 'd ,
It will accommodate Ita speed t that
of the lightship, which can make ' about
eight and a half knots, but probably will
not average more than seven on the trip
to Ihe Pacific. The lightships are very
different from the old sailing craft of the
past that, when driven off station, were
many days laboriously reaching It again
tinder mere shreds of canvas. They are
about four knots , better than the steam
cart that succeeded the sail equipped boats
and can make headway against anything
save cyclonic seas. They are known by
numbers and the names of the places where
they are stationed. Each is 130 feet long
and of 800 tons displacement. The engines
are of the compound type, and each carries
when courtcsying to the seas or wallowing
In them on station only enough coal to
keep the electric plant going and to get on
and off station.
The skippers and most of the crews of
the three lightships will leave them -when
they get to their destinations. One, No. 88,
will rldo off tho mouth of the Columbia
river; another. No. 93, will be anchored at
the entrance to the Straits of San Juan de
Fuca, state of Washington; the third. No.
98, called also the Itellef, will do duty on
either of these stations while the regular
boats are undergoing repairs or overhaul
ing. One for Hawaii.
The tender Kukul will leave the flotilla
at San Diego, Cal and steam -for Hawaii
to do duty among the Islands, supplying
lighthouses and attending to the many
buoys marking the channels. Like Its sis
ters, tlio Manzanlta and the Sequoia, It
has a buoy deck fifty feet long, necessary
In the handling of the new acetylene buoys,
which are big and heavy. A revolving
steam derrick on this deck is capable of
lifting twenty tons.
The reason the government did not build
Its lightships and tenders on the coast
where they are to be used Is that the cost
of construction Is too heavy there, the pay
of skilled labor being much higher than on
this side of the continent. The flotilla will
have cost less, Including the wages of offi
cers and crews and the big expenditure In
coal when It reaches the Pacific than It
would have cost if created at Pacific coast
A description of the lightship will fit all
the rest No. 93. the Swlftsure Bank, differs
from the others chiefly In being drab In
stead of red.
Each has the inevitable mushroom anchor,
which drawn up close to Its bow, Just above
the forefoot, snug against the hawse pipe,
looks not unlike a huge black collar button.
The anchor Is about six feet In diameter
and welgs 8,000 pounds, and is attached to
150 fathoms of heavy steel cable.
Looks of m. Lightship.
The lightship, as may be seen by the
pictures, Is high bowed and has a clipper
stem that is not so handsome as some of
the- slanting old-fashioned clipper bows of
the Yankee packets of long ago. There Is a
bit of the suggestion of a duck In its form,
and. it. looks tho sea boat that it was de
signed to be.
Admiral Merti says of the lightships that
they are the finest storm deflers afloat and
the safest, and "when properly handled will
put a gull to shame." The tenders cannot
make so good weather In a bow as the tall
sided, high bowed light vessels.
Kvery ship of the flotilla has extra
snchors and plenty of strong manlla hawser
to be used in case any of them should bo
disabled. All have also spare propellers., J
The progress will be made In Indented
crflumn, the flagship Mnnzantta leading,
with No. 88 on Its port quarter. The Sequoia
will follow on the starboard quarter of No.
88. and on the port quarter of the Sequoia
will come No. 93, which will have the
Kukul on Its starboard quarter. No. 92 will
bring up on the port quarter of the Kukul.
The distance between the ships will be 400
yards by day and W yards at night or In
thick weather. The skippers will be able
to keep the distances at night by using
their sextants on the lights on the taffrails
and the after side of the mainmast near
. fttop Along; the War.
When the flotilla sailed it carried 1.200
tons of coal in bunkers In holds and In
sacks on deck. Its first stop will be San
Juan, where defects of machinery are
to be remedied by government assistance.
The flotilla there will take on 560 tons of
coal and mall for St. Lucia, where It will
take aboard 150 tons.
The other ports pf call for coal will be
Pernambuco, Montevideo, Sandy Point,
Valparaiso and C'alluo. The longest stretch
of sailing will be between Callao and Plch
lllnque Bay, 2,000 miles, that Is provided the
coal holds out.
If there 1s any possibility of It getting too
snort to venture on the long tun the flo- i
tllla will put Into Acapnia. Pichlllnque Bay
is a government coaling station.
The Sequoia will leave the fleet at Sin
Francisco and the Mjnzanlta will go on
with the lightships after the new crews
and skippers aro shipped at the usual rate
Admiral Merti says that he expects to
make the trip In about 115 days, including
stops for cual. The actual number of
steaming days probably will be eighty-two.
Other lighthouse vessels have made the
Irtp to the Pacific through tha Straits of
Magellan. In 1S57 the steamer, Shubrlck.
sailed from Philadelphia under command
of Commander John Da Camp; Lieutenant
W. K Field took the lighthouse tender,
Munsanlta, the original of the name,

MAN'S EVERT-DAY SACK COAT
Autumn Dress of the New Yorker in
MORE MODEST IN ITS APPEARANCE
Free from Kit rnvaaanre In Cnt nr Ma
Irrlsl Hrows th Predominat
ing Color Lines of Treat-
era and Wnlstcoats.
NEW YORK, Sept. 28. Perhaps It Is the
sark coat that Interests the well flressed
New Yorker more than any other garment.
That Is the coat he wears moat frequently.
It is the business dress of nearly every
New Yorker, whether he be a clerk or the
president of a trust company.
It Is no uncommon thing indeed to see a
young man who has attained or inherited
a conspicuous post In business go to his
office In a frock coat or a cutaway elab
orately braided. But the sark suit Is as
much the symbol of business here as the
blouse In the Chamber of Deputies In Paris
is the outward and visible sign of the work
So It Is pleasant to learn that this popu
lar garment wMll this season be free from
any extravagance In cut or material.
Brown Is again the' prevailing autumn
color, Just as gray predominated all sum
mer. But the alternation of these two
colors seems almost inevitable.
The browns this year show the usual
variety. They are the smooth, hard fin
ish cheviots In various shades, the herring
bone stripes, the shaggier casslmeres,
checks outlined by pin lines of red, blue,
gray and green, and flannels similar in pal
tern to those made for summer use, but
In some of the casslmeres and cheviots
the checks and stripes are so faintly out
lined that the goods seem to be of a solid
color. And this color must be of a dark
chocolate brown rather than in the light
shades worn several years ago. The vogue
of the onion skin Is passed. Such shades,
moreover, are suited only to summer
There are, of course, other colors than
brown, although that is' the color seen
most frequently and on the best dressed
men. Grays are so dark that the black
check or stripe on them Is scarcely dis
tinguishable; or they are so light that
they might be Intended for summer wear.
Blue Is so essentially a summer color
that It rarely appear In the winter ward
robes. Yet the dark blue winter serge may
be a very smart garment.
The double-breasted sack of the kind
shown In the picture is recommended only
to the slight man. Such a coat, made of
heavy winter material and then covered
with an overcoat produces an effect of the
kind described by fashion writers as
bunchy. Yet the thin man In a well cut
dark blue double-breasted serge will be
certain of looking as smart as the best of
them. In such a garment It is, of course,
line, and not color, that county for smart
ness. The smart sack of the coming winter
should have four buttons and Is still some
what longer than the coat of two years
ago and falls well below the hips. The
shoulders are of natural width, Which
means that there Is no padding, although
every coat fits better for a certain amount
That the coat shall not outline the figure
too closely Is shown by the professional
description of It as half fitting, which
means that the figure Is outlined without
ever allowing the garment to touch too
closely at any point.
The smartest coats have three seams In
the back, although some coats are made
merely with the two side scams and a
single piece of cloth to form the back.
This Is not so smart as the two-piece back
with the seam down the middle, which en
ables a tailor to cut a much smarter coat
and makes any garment In some Indefinable
way appear much more distinguished.
The sack coat of the year must show
plainly that the weater has a waist In
spite of the equally Important condition
that the coat must not be what Is com
monly called cut Into the figure. It Is tho
mysterious phrase, half-fitting, which ex
plains that the coat must be tight, but not
too tight, the figure suggested, but not
emphasized and all eccentricities of cut and
design carefully avoided.
The collar still closes low enough down
to show the top of the waistcoat, while
the edges at the bottom are rounded, but
almost meet. The roll of the collar, which
should not be pressed down, extends to the
breast line, and the hip pockets are fin-
tshed with flaps
The breast pocket Is
finished only with a seam and Is a little
more slanting than formerly.
The sleeves are finished with a two or
three-button vent, which Is naturally prac
tlcable, as one says of stage properties,
which means that it will button and unbut
ton, whether that be necessary or not.
The waistcoats are this year almost In
variably made without a collar. They are
also single breasted few even of the fancy
waistcoats this year made double breasted
and its novelty of finish may lie In long
points or a button hole for the watch-
chain cut between the second and the third
button from the bottom.
The trousers are moderately full nt the
hips and should still be tight over the
ankle. The tendency Is to make them
tighter at the knee. Naturally they

Changes In the weather may be foretold
by a very simple, home-made Instrument,

a writer In tho Scientific American: "It
Is comKsed of a two-pound glass Jar and
a glass oil flask. The Jar Is about half
filled with water and the flask put head

shady spot, where the temperature is fairly
even. It will be observed that the height

as to the movement of the water. It Is a
good plan to mark the stem of the flask

ence will soon teach the owner as to how
much Importance to attach to the move
ment of the water barometer. However, a
decided rise Is a good sign of fine weather,
while whon the water Is low down In the
tube stormy weather may be expected."
