Cone ret Belt Armor.
The ui of renfS?ced"
armor on warship has recently ben
suggested. An Italian engineer, Lor
enzo d'Adda, has been led by tie suc
cess of concrete land fortifications,
fis revealed in the Russian-Japanese
war, to oanstruct armor plates of re
enforced concrete, covered with thin
plates of steel, as a protection against
the immediate effects of the impact of
sheila. Concrete armor plates, even
wben re-enforced toy stout and close
ly inlaid iron bars, must obviously
be much thicker than hardened steel
armor, but as the specific gravity
of the material is- only one-third that
of steel the weight of the armor need
mot be increased, while its cost may
be very greatly diminished. The sub
stitution of re-enforced "concrete for
steel armor on a first class (battleship
would effect a considerable saving.
The practicability of the substitution
will be decided by the result, of ex
periments, soon to be made, on the
effect of ehots on the re-enforced
concrete plates. Scientific American.

Pine Plains, N. Y. Havoc was
wrought on the Hogsback when a
violent windstorm, - accompanied by
rain and hail, bore down on' the city
of tents where the National Guard
and the regular troops are encamped,
ready for the military maneuvres of
the Department of the East. Every
tent in the camp was blown down,
and a number of soldiers were in
jured. Major William E, Halliday, Pay
master Of the camp, was paying off in
one of the tents in the Twelfth In
fantry reservation when the storm
broke. He had almost $25,000, most
ly in bills of $10, $5, $2 and $1 de
nominations. The tent under which
the Paymaster sat was swept away
and the money was scattered by the
wind. Late at night the search for
some of the missing money was still
going on. Some of it was found after
the storm 500 yards away.

All was activity in Pine Camp early

at 3 o'clock the storm struck. A
quiver ran throughout the camp, and
then the tents began to fall. Canvas
was flapping In the wind, and the men
went scurrying this way and that,
dodging the tents and tent poles as
they were uprooted and hurled along
by the blast.
It is estimated that the gale blew
sixty miles an hour for a few min
utes after it struck. And while the
soldiers were staggering against the
force of the wind the hail struck and
then the rain.- On the top of the
Hogsback, a knoll which overlooks
the entire encampment, and on which
was pitched the tents of General
Frederick Dent Grant and his staff,
the greatest damage was done. Gen
eral Grant's tent was one bf the first
to go down before the wind.
The General was in his tent talking
to Major Lloyd McCormick, the Inspector-General,
when the first blast
struck. Before the General and the
Major could spring out of the door
the big A-shaped tent fell about their
heads, and as they scrambled to free
themselves from the canvas it was
lifted by the wind and carried down
The tents occupied by the military
observers and the umpires were
grouped around that of General

down and some of the observers nar

Over the crest of the hill swept the

where the militia and regulars were
encamped. The Eleventh and Thir

One man in the Massachusetts

another's ear was nearly torn off, and

It will take the engineer corps two

storm. The storm lasted only about
five minutes and then the rain poured

FLORIDA STANDS TORPEDO TEST.
Monitor Disabled, With Side -Pierced
and List, at Fort Monroe.
Fort Monroe.Va. Pierced with an
American Whitehead torpedo carry
ing a charge of guncotton, which tore
a 'large hole in her side, the United
States monitor Florida now rests in
the drydock at the Norfolk Navy
Yard, a victim of a naval experiment
to test the vulnerability from torpedo
attack of watertight bulkheads. The
water in the vessel's hold gives her a
list of seventeen inches to starboard.
The test took place off Pine Beach,
near the Jamestown exposition
grounds, where the monitor was an
chored in fifteen feet of water. The
naval officials, while admitting that
the damage done to the vessel is seri
ous, declare that it is not vital and
say that the test is satisfactory.
Upon arrival at the navy yard the
monitor Florida was immediately run
into the big stone drydock and the
water pumped out, in orderthat a
close examination of the damage done
by the torpedo could be definitely
seen. This examination showed that
a clean hole, extending from the su
perstructure, down the hull, had been
made, and that it was twenty feet in
length. The destructive power of the
torpedo was the marvel of the exam
ining officers. The injury internally
extended in about eight feet at the
centre, but varied from four to six
feet on the margins.

INVALID'S SAD PLIGHT.
Alter Inflammatory Rheumatism,
Hair Came Out, Skin Peeled, and
Bed Sores Developed - Only
Caticnra Proved Successful.
"About four years ago I had a very se
rere attack of Inflammatory rhenmatism.
My skin peeled, and th high fever played
haroo with my hair, which came out in
bunches. I also had three large bed sores
on my back. I did not gain very rapidly,
and my appetite waa very' poor. I tried
many 'sure cures' but they were of little
help, and until I tried Cuticura Resolvent
I had had no real relief. Then my com
plexion cleared and soon I felt better. The
bed florea went very eoon after a few appli
cations of Cuticura Ointment, and when I
used Cuticura Soap and Ointment for my
hair, it began to regain its former glossy
abearance. Mrs. Lavina J. Henderson.
