the number of coaches held up, occur

Maxim's Latest Invention Gives As-toundine-
Results In Practice.
Springfield, Mass., Aug. 25. The u
official test of Hiram P. Maxim's gun tj
silencer was made by officers stationed
at tho United btates armory here to
day. Tho test, it is said, proved the
truth of the claims of tho inventor.
Tho device was attached to a regula
tion army rifle. Tho test was made nt
regular ranges, relays of signals being
stationed at intervals. It was found
that while tho discharge of thu une
quipped rifle is audible 7,700 yards,
with the silencer this distance was cut
down to 1,500 yards. Further testa
were mado to determine whether tho
silencer interferred with tho velocity
of tho bullet and it was found that this
interference was slight, reducing tho
velocity not moro than 5 or 6 per cent.
