Warehouse Fired, by: a Meteor.
An extraordinary accident is reported
from Austria. Someextensive ware
houses were destroyed by fire lately at
Flume, the result, as was believed, of a
stroke of lightning. It is now reported
that in clearing the debris a great
meteoric stone, weighing four tons,
was discovered imbedded in a deep pit
among the ruins, and the experts' have
decided that the premises were set on
fire by the glowing stone.

The policy of this conntry regarding forefg n

declaration of our leading politicians, will be
(sustained, but patli nee and prudence in olllcial
quarters will restrain the exuberance of public
opinion. The wisest and mont prudent coarse
for the rheumatic and the malarious ,is to use

"SHOOT ON DOWNWARD ROLL."
This Ia Uncle Sam's Standing Order
to the Nav of the United States.
"Shoot on the downward roll." That
Is the standing order to the nary of the
United States. The American practice,
both in the army and navy, has always
been to shoot low, and always to save
ammunition until It was possible to use
it effectively. In the navy the tradition
to shoot low has crystallized into a
standing rule, unwritten indeed, but
none the less religiously observed, and
Its wisdom has been proved on more
than one occasion of great Importance.
The precise form of this unwritten
naval rule is to "wait for the down
ward roll." This is the converse of the
maxim obtaining In the British navy
that it 1s best to take advantage of the

naval fighting by the gunners on En

power of England's "wooden walls" to
defend the Island was attributed in the
days when England, and not the United
States, was at war with Spain.
Necessarily the deck of a vessel at
sea offers a much less satisfactory plat
form from which to shoot than the sol
Id foundation provided In a land fort,
since, even when the ocean Is calmest,
the vessel must constantly roll from
side to side. . Theoretically, the best
time to fire would be at the moment
between trolls, when the deck of the
ship Is perfectly level and -in' a general
way it may be said that an attempt Is
made to do the shooting at that Instant

No creature but man has ever made
use of fire. An African traveler, In
deed, has told a story of apes nia&log
a thieving raid on a camp of nattves
and carrying torches to light their way,
but this story lacks proof and Is not ac
cepted as true by zoologists.
There Is, however, in the Philadel
phia zoological garden a monkey who
has learned to scratch matches per
fectly well. This accomplishment he
is willing to exhibit on any occasion.
lie has learned to hold the match by its
middle part sj that Ms fingers are not
burned by bolng toj neap the flame,
and so that .the match will not break
by being held, too near the other end.
This fact involves another that he
Is aware wjilch end has the sulphur
and does not attempt to scratch the nn
smlpMuredend. He has furthermore
learned that a rough surface Is better
to scratch the maiteh on than a smooth
one, and. his care in looking for a rough
place Is' very diverting.

the custom ever since the adoption ol
marine flag signals for suddenly com
municating intelligence to distant ob
Jects at sea. And signals have .been
employed for many years, their origin
being Indeed lost in remote antiquity.
During the day flags are used fot
signals. The first code used in the
United States navy was almost precise
ly similar to the code In use about the
same time by the British. There were
twenty-six flags, one for each letter,
and a number of pennants for special
and defining systems. There was no
fixed code dictionary, and beyond a few
general signals each Commander made
up his own combinations.' About 1810
a code dictionary was Issued,
A new code was adopted in 1840,
known the Rogers code. In this nine
square flags and fiver pennants were
used, with a dictionary with 13,402
combinations. Rogers' code was modi
fled in 1801 to a system having twolve
square, flags and nine pennants, there
being ten numbered flags, three repeat
ing pennants and two ' square and sh
pennants as defining signals. The dic
tionary was reduced to contain 0,01
signals. In 1800 this system was still
further elaborated by the addition ol
eight defining flags and pennants, : At
the same time the signal book' was re
modeled. Tactical signals' were separ
ated from the general 6lgnal book, and
the latter divided Into alphabetical,
compass, word, geographical and gen
eral classifications. , :
Aside from the flag signals there are
two other codtjs, one for usq during
fogs and the OtheF'at Hight "During a
fog the signals are made by means ol
the steam whistles, the code consisting
of long and short blasts, arranged some
