The big cruiser New York could have
been sunk to-night as she lay at anchor
In Narragansett bay from a torpedo fle-d
at her by ihe submarine boat Holland
Not only would ihe New York have suf

But It was all practice, a night tack,
nnd I* was most successful, proving that
the lloiiur .t boat is n most valuahh part
of the United fltair* navy.
After dark the torpedo boats Morris and
Rogers and the Holland were sent outside
the breakwater soon to be followed by the
Leyden. Tile last-named tug took up a
position at I hr- entrance of the harbor. As
the others made the attack an attempt
was to be made by ihe Leyden to pick
them out wttti Mqychhght*.
So far os the torpedo boats were con

at will, but with the Holland It was dif

sequestered ponds of Ihe mountain hatch
ery attract the. ducks, which are wont to
settle 'town on Ihe limpid sheets of wa
ter. A few of them have mail* their
homes there. They are the wood duck,
and round the grassy edges of the pools
have laid Ihelr eggs In well-hidden nests.
The hatchery men. whose eyes are train
ed hy the study of flsh eggs and lltfia
fish to notice things minute, soon discov
ered the presence of the duck eggs and
began a quiet watch for Ihe hatching
One day recently two egg shells wees
found broken In a nest and at the edge
of Ihe water sat two downy ducklings
near the mother duck. Quietly the de
lighted discoverers irpproa.4ie<l nrmrrr tor
s better va w. A bunch of reeds Mfllf
wsvlng In the soft breese shielded them
In Ihelr effort for s few moments, but
an unlti ’ky footstep Into the shallow wa
ter caused an atnrmlng splash With a
quick whirr of her wings up rose tho
mother before the eyes of the startled
men and slowly settling near by she In
vited all danger to herself But the
hatchery men were not hunters snd were
not looking tor her.
Hastily they stepped forward, ankle
deep In water, and beheld, huddled to
gether close to the reeds, the apprehen
sive ducklings. Wondering how well they
could swim after half s day's existence,
one of the visitors sploshed the water
sharply with hts foot Away from tha
protecting shore sped the two tiny ducka
over the transparent water. Their watc
hed fret soon parried them a dosen yanks
from the big two-footed Intruders.
Down In th* depth ot the pool lurk aomtt
huge trout, whoae keen eyeo are over
watching Ihe surface for grasshoppers,
minnows and food of alt kinds. Rainbows,
they are. and os the ducklings scudded
across the top of the pool the beautifully
colored aides of the trout flashed brilliant
ly as they rose In haste from the bottom.
The first one dashed so recklessly at tbs
nearest ducking Ihat ho mlesed his a Ira
and shot a yard oul of the water Thera
was a loud splash as the Mg flsh fell back
and thoroughly scared, soft-feathered
birds began to paddle desperately for
the shore. But fate was against them,
and they ware not permitted lo swim >ix
Too lata the man realised the danger
of the tiny fowls. In another moment a
slower but surer flsh opened B wide mouth

other a* caught by two trout at tha sastM
Instant and dragged beneath Me sot fees
in the twinkling of an eye.
Down Into the crystal depths went tha
duckling and after an Instant's choking sll
was still. The circles cat Ihe top of the
pool Widened until Invtalblo and the trag
dy was over.
The mother duck, whose eyes had never
left her young darted above the spot
where they had disappeared, with shrill
cries, and utterly disregarded Ihe pee senes
Of tne men. who. slowly retracing tholr
footstep- told anew yam a> Ihe dinner

others, v.ho ha-1 also been watching for
