TO END THE WAR.
TWELVE INCH SHELLS.
These Big Projectiles Carry a Thirty
Pound Explosive Charge.
High power projectiles are construct
ed with cavities in their centers which
contain the explosive charge, the ex
plosive curried varying with the size
of the projectile. A twelve Inch shell,
weighing 870 pounds, carries about
thirty pounds o f explosive. The cavity
o f such a projectile is about seven
inches in diameter at the base, and
gradually tapers In size toward the
point A fter the charge is placed in
the projectile a plug is screwed into
the base, thus sealing up the explosive,
and u fuse is inserted in the center
o f the plug extending into the explo
sive within (he cavity.
The fuse, without which the explo
sive is harmless, depends upon the
high, rotary motion o f the shell to be
come active. This rotary motion is
imparted by the rifling of the gun. In
the smooth surface o f the tube are cut
the rifling grooves o f a width o f about
Round the shell, near its base, in
a groove cut for the purpose, is com
pressed what is known ns the rotat
ing band. This band projects above
the surface of the shell and corre
sponds with the rifling grooves, so
that upon Its discharge it is forced
into the rifling, where it acts as a
seal to prevent the escape o f the gas
formed by the exploding powder and
gives the shell the required rotary
motion, which keeps it on Its true
course with its point always in a di
rect line ahead.—London Tit-Bits.

And there isn’ t any doubt about it.
These men would send out a flag of

of some kind before the tiring began.
They would find eome way to end the
struggle “ with honor.” It would be
effective as would the prevention of
railroad collisions, as suggested by the

that the gentleman from Eiin once
