THE NEW RIFLE. When some Spartan soldiers complained to their leader that the swords were too short, he gave them the advice to add a step to them. That is apparently what the British infantryman is expected to do with his bayonet. The length of the new rifle, with bayonet attached, is about 56 inches,, as against the 71 inches of the French rifle, 69 inches of the German, the 68 inches of the Russian, and the 65 of the Japanese. The United States are the only Great Power that has taken the same course as Britain in discarding the long rifle and bayonet, and in the States there is a large body of military opinion in opposition to the change, which, in this country, is sup- ported by distinguished authority, but does not pass altogether without criticism. 0
