she met and attracted Henry M.
Flagler, the developer of the Florida
East Coast. Mr. Flagler was then
growing old. He was childless and
had a wife, whose mind had failed,
and who was being cared for in a
sanitarium. He desired to obtain a
divorce from her and marry again, in
the hope of obtaining an heir for the
Flagler millions. There seems to have
been obstructions in the way in his
state of New York, so he changed his
citizenship to Florida. The laws of
Florida forbade the divorce he want wanted,

she married her early love, Judge

did not need her money, and it is
probable that the oldtime attachment
was entirely responsible for the union.

About the Welsh.
Wales has plenty of coal, slate,
ecenery and consonants, but very few
surnames. If a Welsh schoolmaster
should say. "Jones, you may go home
now for being a good boy," the whole
school would quit.
People who are not called Jones are
called Williams, or Evans, or Hushes,
or Lloyd. They divide these names
between them and make the best of it.
They do not follow the English meth method

Those Used on Jand Outweigh the
Largest In the Navy.
OUR COAST DEFENSE GIANTS.
The Sixteen Inch' Monster at Sandy
Hook and Panama Can Sink a Vessel
Before It Appear Above the Horizon.
How the Big Guns Are Made.
There are two classes of guns naval
guns and army or land guns. Because
they can be manipulated more easily
than those of a ship, laud guns are the
heavier. The largest naval gun is the
fifteen inch gun, and the largest land
gun is the German howitzer, or 10.5
Of the two the naval gun fires a shell
weighing over half a ton, while the
other fires a projectile a ton in weight.
But the new giant sixteen inh guns

Panama canal and New York at Sandv

pounds, which Is over a ton. These
immense steel guns can sink a ship be before

the horizon, the location of the battle battleship

How these huge pieces are made is
described as follows by the Popular
Science Monthly. The first steyns the
making of the pig iron from iron ore
In large furnaces like towers, called
blast furnaces. Then the pig iron is
melted with other steel in large steel
furnaces called "open hearth" until it
is freed of its impurities and convert converted
ed converted into steel.
The melted steel, thin as water, is
run from these furnaces into big iron
molds, where it is allowed to cool into
large solid cylindrical or corrugated
blocks. After cooling these are reheat reheated
ed reheated and reduced in size by pounding
them with big steel hammers and
squeezing them in rolls until at last
the steel is pressed into a long barrel barrel-like
like barrel-like mass, the embryo of a real 'gun.
This long skeleton of the inside of a
gun must be bored out from one end
to the otheron immense lathes, some
over ninety feet long. Heavy as the
mass Is, a huge lathe turns it around
as easily as a Tody turns a spool.
After the inside has been rifled or
scored to form an inside surface that
gives the shell a twist before it leaves
the muzzle and causes it to fly straight
the lower or muzzle end of the gun is
made'larger. This may be accomplish accomplished
ed accomplished in one or two ways. Either addi additional
tional additional shorter steel tubes are placed
over the main inner tube, or the main
tube is wound with wire and finished
with an outer tube. The wire wound
guns are usually the heavier and are
used on board ship.
The gun bound with wire is really
stronger than the one built of bands or
rings of steel, one on another, for the
wire re-enforces the gun tube so that
it will safely withstand the tremendous
strain which is constantly put on it
when it is fired, said to be as much as
seventeen tons pressure on each square
In the case of a "built up" gun, as
it is called when made of hoops or
bands of steel, the outer tubes or rings
are shrunk or sweated on that Is, they
are heated so that they expand or swell
a little, as all steel does when heated,
and then while hot they are fitted over
the inner part and allowed to cool and
shrink, or contract. In so doing they
fit very tightly on the main tube.
In making a wire wound gun the
wire is wound or coiled around and

miles of wire, weighing about thirteen
and one-half tons. Although the
strength of the wire is such that it
gives great resisting force to pressures
exerted, sideways, it does not bestow
strength lengthwise. Therefore an ex extra

the muzzle of the gun, where the vi vibration

is a very important part. Here the
shell Is inserted in a specially built
chamber. After the shell is in place
the breech is closed by the shutting of
a very complicated and strong door.
It is fastened or fitted in the gun by
extremely strong screws, so that the
charge will not burst the gun open at
the back when it is fired.
Sometimes a shell explodes in the
barrel of the gun. In a wire bound
gun the wire tends to prevent a grave
disaster. It hinders the steel tubes
from bursting Into many pieces and
flying in every direction. The solid
gun is wholly built of tubes, while in
the wire wound gun there may be one
or two tubes, over which the wire is
wound with the jacket tubes shrunk
