Railroad Won't Sell Coal,
But Dealers Don't Worry
Increased consumption of locomo

cause the' Union Pacific Coal com
pany to retire from the commercial
sale of coal from the Rock Springs
district after June 1.
Omaha coal dealers assert, how
ever, that the action of the railroad
in keeping all its Rock Springs coal
for its own use after that date will
not affect the local market for that
kind of fuel, Omaha, they say, will be
supplied in satisfactory quantities with
Rock Springs coal by independent op

to this city much of that kind of coal
here. The prices of $8.50 and $9 per

The will of the late Nathan E.

died January 31, has been filed for
probate in county court, leaves $300
in 'trust to, the town of North Brook

is buried there. The will provides
that in case the sum isnot required
for the upkeep of the burial places,
it shall be given by the town to some
"deservedly poor old lady.''
Mr. Adams left the bulk of his
estate, estimated to be worth about
$6,000, to his widow, Margaret Giles

Gravity's Downward Pull
By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
"Will you describe the trajectory of
a projectile trom a rine or cannon r it
is mv impression that the projectile
travels perfectly straight for a certain
distance and then begins to curve, but
'W' claims that, according to gravity,
the curve commences immediately on
l,; ike m??1r Whlrh is richt?
'W" is rieht. The curve begins the
instant the projectile leaves the muz
zle. It is impossible to shoot a
projectile in a straight line unless the
line corresponds exactly witn -tne ai
rection of gravity. Thus you could
theoretically, shoot straight down or
straight up. and gravity would not in
terfere with the direction of the pro
jectile because its force would be ex
erted in the same line, simply retard
ing the projectile if it moved upward
and accelerating it if it .moved down
Gravity acts instantaneously and
continuously, imparting a Velocity, in
round numbers, of thirty-two feet per
second during each second that the
moving body is subjected to tts ac
tion. The motion of the projectile
does not impede gravity, but is com
bined with the motion that gravity
independently produces. If the pro
jectile is .fired horizontally gravity
pulls down from the horizontal
line from the start to the finish of its
course, the amount of deflection vary
ing as the square of the time that the
Thus, if the projectile is fired hori
zontally from a height of 144 feet,
with a velocity of 1,200 feet per sec
ond, it will drop 16 feet in the first
second, o4 feet in two seconds, and
144 feet in three seconds. But a drop
of 144 feet will bring it to the ground.
so that, starting with the velocity
mentioned, it could not rtmain in the
air more than three seconds, during
which, if we neglect the effect of air
resistance, it would travel ahead 3,600
The trajectory, or patiiTof the pro
jectile cjn be made straighter by in
creasing its velocity, but can never
lie made perfectly straight. For in
stance, suppose it started from the
same height, 144 feet, witn, a horizon
tal velocity of 2,500 feet per second;
gravity would act upon it exactly as
before, and bring it to the ground at
the end .of three seconds, but in tnat
space of time it would have traveled
7.500 feet instead of 3,600 feet from
the muzzle of the gun.' This is one
of the reasons why as great a velocity
as possible is imparted to modern
projectiles. The gunner knows that
he can by no means cheat gravity of
its full due. . It will allow him justfco
many seconds' and not an instant
more to keep his projectile above
ground, and so he tries to send it as
far as possible within the time limit.
Of course this limit can be extend
ed, and the range of the projectile
can be increased, by elevating the
place from whn5h the gun is fired, and
still more by inclining the line of fire
upward. If in the last example the
elevation of the gun above ground
were 1,728 feet instead of 144 feet, the
projectile, starting horizontally,
would remain in the air about 10.4
seconds, during which it would go
ahead 26,000 feet, or nearly five miles.

range is to elevate the line of fire.
With a muzzle velocity of the projec
tile of 2.500 feet per second, which is
somewhere near the actual velocity
attainable with the powder charges
now used, suppose the gun to be
placed on level ground and fired at
an angle of thirty degrees above the
horizontal. Then, as before, neglect
ing the air resistance, the range of
the projectile would be increased to
about thirty-two miles, and it would
ascend to a height of some 25,000
feet before beginning to fall again.
The time of flight would be sixty
eight seconds. But these figures, be
ing all calculated without allowance
for-atmospheric resistance, would all
be considerably reduced in practice.
The wholesale, scientific man-slayers
who are fighting the long-range
battles in Europe have elaborate
tables showing the effects of atmo
spheric resistance on projectiles,
based on very careful experiments,
which were made for the purpose of
substituting practical for purely
theoretical estimates of the effective
range of guns.
There is one curious result that
might, theoretically, be attained by
enormously increasing the speed of a
projectile fired horizontally at a
height above the earth's surface suf
ficient to avoid hitting its mountain
tops. Such a projectile, if it started
with a velocity of about five miles
per second, and were not impeded by
air resistance, would go round the
earth like a little moon. Gravity, pull
ing upon it in the same manner that
it pulls upon the moon, would keep
it at a constant distance from the
earth, because in the same ratio of
distance that it approached the earth
the rounded surface of the globe
-ould recede from it.
