10,000 miles in Alaskan waters, and with

Springfield, Mass., at the national ar

The navy will also change its rifle to
correspond. It is hoped to have some
of the new weapons ready by January 1.
The caliber of the army rifle will be re
duced to thirty, the weight of the bullet
will be 220 grains, and the charge will
be from thfrty-Bix to forty grains of

General Schofield in his report. Idaho's

Cceur d'Alene mining region. Wyoming
also had to employ national troops to
prevent a conflict between armed parties
of citizens. Other special services ren
dered by troops in various parts of the
country are involving much labor, ex
posure and hardship. Regarding small
arms and field artillery he says when
troops are furnished with magazine
small arms they will be as well equipped
as any troops in the world, and urged
that no time be lost in supplying such
arms. The General speaks in approving
terms of the beginning made in fortify

tillery reserve and other matters.
A dispatch reciting the troubles expe

Gilbert Islands was shown to Secretary
Foster the other day. The United States
commercial agent in the islands has made

early in the present year the department
received a communication from King
Tebu Rein 3 of the Gilbert Islands pray
ing that the United States establish a
protectorate over them. The depart
ment did not act upon the application
for the reason that it was the established
policy of the United States to decline to
extend its protection by such means.
Certain aspects of the case resembled
the Samoan controversy, and, although
the Department of State felt obliged to
decline the request for a protectorate, it
may be assumed that all legitimate
American interests in the islands will be

Appearances Are Deceptive.
The popcorn man who does businesa
at the corner of Clark and Center street
met with a ludicrous mishap Sunday
evening, just at the hour when the
streets were crowded with those who
had spent the afternoon In the park.
This vender of corn has occupied this
place for years, and knows ia which
direction every car will turn aa well
as the switchman who turns the
Lincoln avenue cars up Centre street.
Those who have watched a street car a.
It rounds a curve have noticed how the
front platform runs ahead, as though
the car was going to continue In th
same direction, and then gives a euddett
lurch and whirls around the curve.
At the corner of Center and Clark the
appearance to those who do not happen
to know the cars is that all north bound
trains continue up Clark street. As the
cars near the corner it is the custom of
this popcorn man to board aU the trains
in the endeavor to dispose of his but
tered grain. Sunday evening as the
north bound grip came thundering up
Clark street Mr. Popcorn man placed
himself, with his arms full of merchan
dise, right in the center of the Clark
street track. As the train came nearer
and nearer he never moved. On it came,

thronged the entrance of the park be
Dashing in front of the grip car he
wildly seized the astonished popcorn man
by the neck and twirled him to what he,
thought a place of safety. The popcorn
flew like a million grasshoppers, and the
old man swore like a trooper. Anybody
who has heard the heartless laugh of a
street crowd can get an idea of the roar
of merriment that went up as the situa
tion dawned upon the bystanders. But
the most amusing thing of the whole af
fair was the look of blank amazement of
that weU meaning gentleman as he be
held the front car, with its two trailers,

An Unfinished Share.
This reminds the writer of an experi
ence in the Arran LLui Js, on the west
coast of Ireland. He had three weeks'
growth of beard on his face, and he
hunted over the three islands for a bar
ber, at last finding one who was willing
to undertake the job. The Arran barber
had never shaved a Yankee, and was
overjoyed at the chance. He was 20
years old, and had been engaged all his
life at building stone walls. He sharp
ened his razor on a piece of smooth flag
stone and seated hia victim in a kitchen
chair. One man held the patient's head
and a dozen interested spectators looked
on, for it was an altogether unprece
dented event in the islands. The lath
ering was done with a piece of hard
brown soap, which was rubbed over the
face. Grabbing a handful of hair on
top of the patient's head the stone wall
builder flourished tho razor in the air
"Are ye aU ready, sir?"
"All right," was the trembling reply.
Down came the razor with a sweep like
that of a scythe. The implement was
evidently as full of teeth as a buzzsaw.
It tore the hair out by the roots. It
raised the victim bolt upright as if a
cannon cracker had exploded. Tears
gathered in his eyes. His hands clinched
convulsively, and a rivulet of blood ran
down his chesk. The butcher went to
the window to wipe his weapon clean.
While standing there he looked up and
"Shure, sir, ye have a face as tindher
as a little babyl"
The shave was concluded three weeks
later in the city of Galway. New York

Objected to the IJcker.
Apropos of the present necessity for
the separation of families by the often
continued absence of the husband on
the road, I know a little anecdote of a
youngster who had seen so little of his
father that he did not know him, and
when, one Sunday morning, this same '
little fellow, being obstreperous, was
severely reprimanded by his impatient
father, he went howling to his mother
with the wail, "I ain't goin'to git licked
by that old duffer who spends Sunday
