The marines in the navy use the Lee rifle, which has a magazine holding five cartridges. This arm is of .23 caliber. ID naval warfare the shell has replaced the solid shot in all calibers down to the 1 ponnder gun, adding vastly to the destructive offect of a cannonade. All modern guns on ships of war are breecbloading and rifled. From the highest calibers down to a 4 inch diameter of bore guns are designated by their caliber. From a 4 PIEISG FROM A MOSITOE'S FIGHTING TOP. Inch caliber down to the 1 ponnder they take their name from the weight of the shot they throw. Everything below the 1 ponnder is in tho machine gun class. Male applicants may enter the navy between the ages of 14 and 35 years. Boys between 14 and 17 years old can enlist only as apprentices. While in the army the private soldier may rise to a major generalship, in the navy the limit of the bluejacket's possible promotion is the position of warrant officer, as gunner, boatswain, carpenter. The highest pay of a warrant officer is $1,800 a year. Bluejackets are better paid than soldiers in the United States service, and when in active service have what the soldier is seldom sure of, the assurance of good food and comfortable quarters, A landsman in the navy receives in the beginning $16 a month, and his pay increases at each step of his promotion to the'rank of ordinary and of able seaman. From Key West to Havana is a distance of 90 miles measured in a direction almost due south. To cruise on a warship in the Caribbean sea is a far more healthful and pleasant business than to campaign on land. It is cooler upon the water, there are no venomous reptiles or insects to make life a burden and but little liability of malarial or epidemic disease. For fighting in warm climates the United States seaman wears a uniform of white—canvas jumper, canvas trousers, knitted watch cap or white canvas hat, black necktie and lanyard with knife. For boarding or repelling boarders in a naval' engagement the United States sailor is provided with a revolver and cutlass. When landed as infantry, he carries a Lee magazine rifle. There is nothing cleaner than the decks and equipment of a warship. All woodwork is scrubbed and brass work polished daily, and there is no end to painting and scraping and to the chipping of rust from anchors and cables. Every man-of-war's man knows bow to sew and does bis own mending. Many of the old hands would rather bny the materials and make their own clothes than draw a ready made uniform snit from the government. On warships to which a chaplain is assigned a small white pennant with a blue cross flying from the gaff gives notice that divine service is being held on board. iSIo punishment involving bodily suffering, such as the old time flogging, branding, tattooing of offenders, can be adjudged by any court martial or inflicted upon any person in the navy. In modern naval fights the battleships are ranged in the first line and bear the brunt of attack. With them are the monitors and armored cruisers which protect the flanks and rear of the line of battle. Protected cruisers, torpedo boats, dispatch boats, hospital ships and torpedo boat destroyers form the second line. Torpedo boat destroyers are large torpedo boats which are equipped so that they may launch torpedoes at the enemy or with gtms and rams aiuk hip torpedo boats. The cost per day of maintaining in^ commission an ordinary warship is $1,500. The present outlay for the United States navy is $50,000 per day. " A single charge of ammunition for a large caliber gun costs $500. It costs from $7,000 to $10,000 to fill the bunkers of a man-of-war with coal. Until the recent naval fight off Manilla -only one sea fight had occurred to put .modern war vessels and armaments t<_- the test—the battle of Yalu, in 1S95, Between the Chinese and Japanese fleets. Our modern steel built, annorclad navy had no existence, even on paper, 16 years ago. At that time the United States had but 37 war vessels available for cruising, of which only one, the Tennessee, was a first rate ship. The smoothbore muzzle loader was the prevailing gun in the service then. Many of the war craft of that period have been since laid up as superannuated. The first class battleship Iowa is the most powerful open sea fighter, and the protected cruiser Minneapolis, which has reached a speed of 23.7 knots, if ttt Bwifteat ship in the navy.'

Pentecost, New York, The World'* Advance In Moral Progress. It is a fact in history that when the world, advancing in. moral progress, meets an obstacle the obstacle must give way. That is evolution. That is the providence of God. The highest civilization must push on until the earth has no more barbarians.
