But what follows he delivers as if he were himself Chryses and tries as far as may be to make us feel that not Homer is the speaker, but the priest, an old man. And in this manner he has carried in nearly all the rest of his narration about affairs in Ilion, all that happened in Ithaca, and the entire Odyssey.” “Quite so,” he said. “Now, it is narration, is it not, both when he presents the several speeches and the matter between the speeches?” “Of course.” “But when he delivers a speech

the four grooves of the rifle, and used with a patch. In Murphy's mode, the rifling only extends four inches from the muzzle, and has its pitch lefthand-ed to correct the slight tendency to pull the gun over to the right in pulling the trigger. The Whitworth rifle has a hexagonal bore; the Westley Richards carbine, an octagonal bore; the Lancaster carbine, an elliptical bore, or it may be described as a spiral of oval section. The rifling of gun-barrels in the Remington Works at Ilion, N. Y., is done by a very small cold steel chisel inserted in a long rod firmly attached to a rapidly revolving wheel, which also moves up and down a platform. The barrel is run over this rod and placed firmly in position. As the wheel revolves, the chisel in the rod cuts the rifling in the barrel; and as the wheel advances and retires very rapidly, the twist of the rifling is very elongated. In breech-loading arms the bullet is of slightly larger diameter than the bore measured from land t

of 1825 and 1868 authorized the sale of arms, ammunition, and stores which were damaged or otherwise unsuitable, and the war department extended these terms to cover arms which were in excess of the needs of a peace establishment. The Secretary of War (Belknap) proceeded to reduce the stock on hand, and was doing so at the breaking out of the Franco-Prussian war,—a war which our government promptly recognized by a proclamation of neutrality. The well known firm of Remington & Son, of Ilion, New York, manufacturers of arms, who were among the largest purchasers, were discovered, Oct. 13, 1870, to be acting as agents of France; and the same day the secretary, with the view of observing forms of neutrality between the belligerents, directed that no further sales should be made to them. While recognizing by this order that a sale of arms to either belligerent would be a breach of neutrality, his department nevertheless treated the order from the beginning as only formal, and made no
