SATURDAY. AUG 18. 1900. Ytrtaea ef Stllta. Bhepherda in the south of France hare long been noted for their use of ertilta in their oocupation. The pea san t of the "Landea" with a pair of stilts se curely faatened to hia lega, atanding frequently more than six feet from the ground; will more about with great ra pidity. Recently tbe military value of theae stilts has been recognized. After aome drill on theae artiflcial sup porta, French infantry were able to imore very rapidly and lay a telegraph line quicker thnn can be done by aol? diera on horaeback. Once the men ac quired the art of walking six feet above the ground they were able to employ their handa as people ordinarily do iu walking and covering the ground with g-iant stridtea, soon aceomplished a dis? tance which would require much longer time on foot. The advantage of these stilta in military operations having been demonstratedi in France, it is probable other nations may also apply the novel idea. The utiiity of this ap j...
