RUSES BY WHICH CAPTAINS

It is the surprise attack which in
nearly every caso enables a submarine
to torpedo a hostile ship. There are
several maneuvers by means of which
a ship can trick a submarine. Several
vessels have diverted torpedoes by
swinging round their stern until it
points in the direction of the undersea
craft In this way the wash of the
propellers has deflected the torpedo
from its course and it has sped harm
lessly past its mark. Another success successful
ful successful ruse is to stoke up the furnaces of
a ship chased by a submarine, and
thick, black smoke belches from Its
funnels and envelops- the vessel in a
protective shroud. In this fray the sub submarine

not cannot perceive I the correct direction in
which to send their torpedo.
A speedy ship which follows an er erratic,

mark to a submarine. When a torpedo

however, if a ship is swinging rapidly

A submarine seldom attacks a vessel
If It la not alone, for it can only attack
one at a time, and while it is launching

vessel has an excellent opportunity of
ramming the submarine, which can be
located by its telltale periscope. Pear Pearson's

THE ENTRANCE HALL
Maka It Suit Not Visitors, but the Oe
cupants of the Home.
Is anything new to be said about the
entrance hall? The smallest room In
most houses, it is usually given in the
plans an amount of attention that
might seem out of all proportion to the
rest of the house. And yet the ordi ordinary
nary ordinary entrance, whether it be a mere
vestibule, a spacious ball of the colo colonial
nial colonial style or, as in our present day
fashions, a part of the living room set
off by an archway, is quite unsatisfac unsatisfactory.
tory. unsatisfactory. It Is unsatisfactory for this rea-
son that the entrance way Is designed
and decorated from the standpoint of
the impression it makes on visitors,
whereas the impression we should seek
Is not that made upon guests, but upon
ourselves, the occupants of the house.
Too oftgn we give the entrance a se
vere treatment that impresses, the stu
dent of beauty or that amazes the less
discriminating visitor by the other ex extreme
treme extreme of lavish display. But hovf does
-either of these two types of entrance
affect those who come into the house
many times every day, the good man
and his good wife and their children?
Is it a room that by its suggestion of
rest and repose tempts, one after a
hard day's work at the office to drop
Into the first easy chair that comes
along, or does it irritate the nerves and
keep one going, restless and uneasy,
wandering from the entrance to the
living room and from the living room
to the study and thence to the attic by
way of the basement? Good Health.
