These guns are capable of sending
projectiles, specially designed for the
purpose, to a height of over 10,000
feet at the rate of twelve or thirteen
a minute. The Iron Duke is also the
first vessel to carry a battery of
twelve six-inch quick-firers for beating
off the attacks of torpedo craft. Most
of the earlier ships were armed with
four-Inch guns for this purpose, but
torpedo craft have grown so rapidly,
and it is now possible for torpedoes to

Beauty and Utility.
Why not combine beauty and utility
j by growing a few globe artichokes
along the back fence. Surely the
plants are as ornate and as graceful
as any century plant, aloe, yucca, etc,
found in local gardens and the buds
are considered by many as an esculent
superior to asparagus. If the common
green globe sort does not appeal to
your artistic taste, there Is a variety
bearing buds of purple that really
make the plant attractive. Give these
and other economic plants a chance to
demonstrate their value, and you will
find many have a double claim to
space in the garden.
Value of Beauty to Towns.
Many towns have increased their
taxable property by the simple and In Inexpensive

unsightly buildings around the rail railroad

shrubbery. Thus beauty has its dis distinct

Enver Bey got an idea of the looks
of his future bride by means of a pho
tograph. This illustrates a difficulty
from which the young Englishman is
free, but which is sometimes very
amazing to the young Turk. He ought
not to see his bride's face until he has

her suitor's face out of doors. But her
face should remain veiled from him,
and, although he generally contrives
to get an idea of her appearance, it
cannot always be done. Mr. Ferriman

bride a brunette, when he wanted a
