FINEST SHOTS IN THE WORLD.
Army Is Increasing Record
Washington, Juyl 0. In a letter to
Acting Secretary Ollvor, President
Koosevnlt ha expressed hi gratifica
tion at the remarkable progres that is
being made by the enlisted men of the
army In markmanshlp. Before the
Spanish war the American private sold
lor was admittedly the finest shot In
the world. The addition of tho larte
number of volunteer had the effect ol
greatly reducing the average of the
rltletnon. Hut since the reorganization
of the army following the war, every
effort has been mode to stimulate in
terest in markmanshlp, and the result
Is that today the average Is probably
a high, If not higher, than a it was at
tho beginning of tho war.
Tho figures laid before tho president
that elicited his approval shewed that
In 1003 there were, In the whole army,
68 expert rltlemen, 304 sharpshooter
and 600 marksmen, as the various
grade are known technically. In the
following year these figures had in
creased to 204 expert riflemen, 1,430
sharpshooter and 2,484 marksmen.
Now It shown that last year the reco.d
stood bOO expert riflemen, 3,371 sharp
shooters and 3,340 marksmen. Gene
ral Oliver attributed tho improvement
In large pirt to thn fact that congress
has allowed an Increase of pay of $3
per month In the case of expert rifle
men, $2 for sharpshooters and $1 for

tho postotllces of Austria. Despite tho
novoiiy of tho enterprise, the plan haa
worked admirably, so that many thou
sands are collected nunually by tho
postman throughout the Austrian em

pose a tradesman lu Vienna has an
tccount duo from a customer In, say,
such n distant town as Budapest, which
ho wishes to collect. Distance does not
matter lu the east. Ho merely sends
the bill to tho postofllco In tho capital,
whence It Is transmitted to tho post
otrlce at Budapest. There tho iwstman
presents It to tho debtor, collects tho
cash, and remits It to tho Vienna post
otllce, whence It Is delivered to tho
tradesman by postman. In tho event
of payment being rofused, which, of
course, somotlmes happens, tho creditor
Is promptly apprised of tho fact, and
voluablo tlmo Is thus frequently saved.
