The elimination of lihefi-inch  guns,  borne   by .practically   all   the  battleships of lhe world  hitherto, is- one of  thc main   lessons  deducted  from   the  long ramge  actions  which  have been  fought  in   the  Far East,    The essential  feature of  a battleship  in  modern     conditions,  it   is now  realized,  must  be  the  ability   to  deliver   stunning blows  at  a distance  of five  or  six  miles and  this   the Dreadnought  wilh her dir/on great guns,   will   be  able to  do with terrible effect.

Never     outside fairyland   has been  seen such a wonderful carpet as that  which King    Edwurd has just received as apresen t from ' the. Shah of Persia as a  token of bis appreciation 01 f  the   ���������affectionate hospitality extended !  to luni    on  the     occasion or his last  visit to this country.   When this mar  vcllous production  ofvPcrsiair artists  and  weavicis    was spread  out   before  His Majesty     at   Buckingham  Palace  he must   have been   reminded of  some  of   the      Arabian     Nights  scenes.   It  had        been known for some      days  past      that     a special      AinlUissador  from   the     Persian  Mmaich  was  to  wait on the King aim  theie w.i.s some  speculation     as to    lhe object   of1 his  mission.

be made in making coffee, and that la
to cook It too much. When subjected
to a momentary boiling and then removed from the fire It la a drink foi
the gods, but If It I. kept at a high degree of heat for thirty minute. ��ta
character Is entirely changed, and It
becomes almost poisonoua. Of tha people who overcook coffee la thl. way
some do it through Ignorance, but tha
greater part of them through greedln
order to make lt go further and. produce a larger profit. What we need la
