Whoever said that Old Town couldn't
play ball, simply didn't know what they
were talking about. Just glance your
optics over this a.gregat ion of ball
players from Old Townaind no one will
be surprised at the St'" game'they put
up with the Rmg,-edy.s o Thursday.
There is Captain Davis, who can throw
a ball faster ard harder than a Krapp
10-pounder can put(a sli,- shot. And
did you notice that king of owns, who
held di-WU the third I)ag, put a dent in
the atmosphere as he swipedI unmerciful-:
ly at the ball ? .AAnd B0rrell. McNeil, the
ail aroun.dbal player, -simply another

was a 16-fot oar. .
The .ngge(lys didn't wai t to play the
Old Towns at first, becatn.ne'the game w"s'
to be played:strictly upondi'ts laurels and
only wit 11 home talertff; -but Old Town had
sent off and hired ..iofe sional', -which
caused an objection on the part of the
Raggedys, but after coubidera+le parlance
with that astute baseball manager, Com-
modore George Bell, it was agreed to. let,
the Raggedys win the game, and this is
the manner in which it was done.
SOld-Town led off atthe hat. Barr and
Davis fanned the- air three beats, and
Kelly's hit to second ended their first in
one, two, three order.

The Brunswick baseball team seems to
be helpless without Lawshe. When he
is in the box it takes a good team to
touch our boys. But they are playing in
Waycross this week without the twirler,
and the result has been two overwhelm-
ing defeats. qn Monday the score was 20
to 4, and yesterday Waycross improved
and Brunswick got worse, the score be-
ing 30 to 2. It may be said, however,
that. Waycross has a professional* battery,
Shrek and Strickland. The shutters-out
of Fort Valley and the annihilators of
Thomasville should still, however, be
able to do better with Waycross-Bruns-
wick Times-Advertiser. .
It is hardly likely that the Fernandina
team will make another trip to Jackson-
ville this season to play the Jacksonville
baseball club.
It veas agreed. by telegraph yesterday
morning between the managers of the
Jacksonville and Fernandina teams that
none but home talent would be used in
the game to be played that day, yet one
of the first smiling countenances seen
upon entering the Jacksonville grounds
was Turner's. He had been engaged to
pitch against Fernandina. This alone
would have prevented the game from
being played. The Jacksonville man-
agement is guilty of inveigling a large
crowd of excursionists to their city un-
der false prstenses.

suit purchasers.

In one importing house I found some-
thing so stylish and useful that I pre-
sent it. It was a stiff pelerine cape of
white moire, bordered with black lace
and two flat bands of black moire. The
two tabs ended with a fringe of jet
beads. This can be made in any material
or color easily, and it can be worn with
any gown indoors or out.

attends Harvard. Lady Somerset is the
Frances E. Willard of Great Britain.
She is the foe of vice in any form and
considers living pictures degrading to
those who take part in them and to
those who view them.
She is a strong minded woman and
consequently makes no secret of the
fact that she was born in 1851. She is
the eldest daughter of Earl and Coun-
tess Somers of Eastnor castle, Ledbury,
in Herefordshire, England, and succeed-
ed to the vast estates of her father.
At 21 she was married, but not mated,
to Lord Henry Somerset, second son of
the Duke of Beaufort, and in 1874 her
only child was born. Marriage was a
failure so far as she and Lord Somerset
were concerned, and his dissipated hab-
its soon led to a separation. The child
was awarded to its mother, and Lord
Somerset retired to Florence to live on
a handsome allowance furnished by his
From that time until 1885 her life
was passed amid the gay whirl of Eng-
lish society. Then sudden religious con-
victions caused her to abandon a life of
elegant idleness for a life of work in
.the cause of humanity. Therewere100,-
000 tenants on her property in the east
of London, and she promptly engaged
in mission work among themh. She gave
fetes to 10,000 poor people at a time,
and Eastunor castle was thronged with
humble visitors. Lady Somerset then
turned her attention to the'liquor prob-
lem and became president of the British
Women's Temperance association and
vice president of the World's Women's
Christian Temperance union. Lady
Somerset had long been an ardent ad-
mirer of Miss Willard and came to
America in 1891 to see her. Lady Som-
erset spoke in all the large cities on
temperance work and returned to Amer-
ica in 1893 to dedicate the Woman's
temple in Chicago and .participate in
the opening exercises of the World's
fair. Lady Somerset believes in wom-
en's rights. "She,who is lifegiver,"
she declares, "ought to sit among the
lawgivers. "

NEW YORK, Aug. 30.-There are
times when the English language fails
to meet all the requirements, and that
is when one wants to describe the flow-

winter, or, in fact, for any new season.
The prevailing colors are dark and
rich, with so many new devices and de-

delightful weaves and qualities one
could imagine. The diagonals and those

He Flicked the Gun From the Stage Rob-
ber's Hand.
"There is quite a difference between
staging in the early days of the state
and now, said William Miller, the
owner of the stage line running from
Cazadero to Ukiah.
"When I came here from Boston in
1854, I drifted about a bit and finally
went into the service of Charles Mc-
Laughlin, the man who was afterward
killed by Jerome Cox. He was the
owner of the longest stage line in Cali-
fornia at that time. It ran with relays
from San Jose to Los Angeles.
"I remember once in a lonely coast
range canyon, through which the 'road
wound, we had a little experience that
was thrilling for the moment. It was
about 10 o'clock and a moonlight night.
I was just putting the horses through.
The stage was full of passengers, and
there was a heavy treasure box.
"Just as I got around a bend in the
road I saw a figure of a man on horse-
back standing by the side of the road.,
He yelled to stop, and I saw a gun bar-
rel gleam in the moonlight. The horses
were going at a speed that might be
called breakneck, and I just made up
my mind to take the chance of getting
through. I saw the gun raised to the
fellow's shou der as we approached. I
had my long whip in my hand, and
with a desperation born of peril of the
moment I made a vicious swipe at him.
"I don't know how it occurred, but
the lash wound itself around the gun,
and as we dashed by the whip was
drawn taut, and I knew it had caught,
so held fast. I was nearly pulled out of
my seat, but the gun was dragged from
the robber's hand and fell to the ground.
At the same time it was discharged by
the shock. It rattled along the road for
quite a distance before the whiplash un-
wound itself. I don't know what the
highwayman thought, but I'll bet he
was surprised."-San Francisco Call.

one time, Yet England can boast of such a fact, as the above pictur-e, taken at the

Quissett, with its immediate neigh-
borhood, is on the east side of Buzzard's
bay, has a small, deep harbor to the
west adjacent to a strip of land on
which are a simple inn and a few cot-
tages, skirted by the bay. Around the
hamlet on high land overlooking the
harbor are a number of cottages, whose
inmatesrarelyvisit the temporary dwell-
ers on the other side of the harbor, nor
do these visit those, so sufficient in the
main\ are the summerers hereabout to
themselves. The bay is separated from
Vineyard sound only by the Elizabeth
islands (Naushon, Pai,:u, Mashawend,
Cuttyhunk and others), lying to the
southwest, and the sound opens at either
end to the Atlantic.
Thus Quissett, nearly surrounded by
water, has breezes from the harbor, the
bay, the sound and the open sea, from
every point of the compass. Unlike most
seaside places, it isq'environed with
greenness and trees, having what would
be called in the west rolling prairie,
much resembling moors, as well as
knobs, headlands and no little diversified
scenery, splashed here and there with
fresh water ponds and lakes. The place

and sails to many ports, domestic and

Wild Duck. He has used his vast for-
tune discreetly and generously and de-

he is held by his wide circle of friends.
On the other side of the bay are Non-
quit, Mattapoisett, Marion, and on this
side Buzzard's Bay, Monumeint Beach,
Onset Bay, Gray Gables and other sum-
mer places. These abound throughout
the vicinity.

[Special Correspondence.]
QUISSETT, Mass., Aug. 30. -This
hamlet, small as it is, is more than
a century old and primarily bore
the aboriginal name, Quiquamquisset.

Indian name, though there is nothing
Latin in it. After awhile it became
Quamquissett, finally Quissett, and so
remains, having a score of scattering
houses, several shops, four pianos and a
It is on Cape Cod, in Barnstable coun-
ty, and is in a way the center of a wide-
ly dispersed populous summer colony,
whose members hayvo. ittle knowledge o o
and almost no communication with one
another. They usually stay far into
October. It is situated within two miles
or so of both Falmouth village and
Wood's Holl and is some three miles
from Falmouth Heights, a summering
settlement of people from Boston and
vicinity, who largely constitute the
scattering community hereabout, with
a number of New Yorkers to be found
Many of the cottages in this district,
to call it such, are handsome and cost-
ly, with fine, well kept grounds. Fal-
mouth proper and Wood's Holl are an-
cient villages, owing their origin to the
hardy whalers and mariners who were
the first settlers of these New England
coasts. The Cape Cod villages have not,
like so many of the large Massachusetts
towns, introduced manufactures to keep
themselves alive, but the summer board-
er, having introduced himself as a sub-
stitute, has served the same end. The
whole length of the cape has within 12
or 15 years been invaded by summerers,
most of whom board at hotels or what
have been farmhouses, while the re-
mainder occupy cottages of their own
The Old Colony railroad, which has
long run to Provincetown, has been ef-
fective in changing the character of the
native population by modernizing it.

itive from the social center standpoint
and are interesting on that account.
They are pure Anglo-Americans, and
like all people who are isolated and
who associate exclusively with their
own, kind "are individual, unconven-
tional. I like them. They are shrewd,
thrifty, but not remarkable for enter-
prise or financial accumulation, which
circumstances do not favor, nor would
they be if it did. The greed of money,
charged often on the inhabitants of
large cities, is in nowise shared by
them. They are willing to earn money
unless it is too much trouble, and they
enjoy a leisurely sort of activity, a spe-
cies of busy idleness, peculiar to this
peninsula. They are indifferent and
unimpressible, and showy folk from
Boston or New York cannot awake their
admiration or surprise by any kind of
display or lavishness.
Their independence is complete. They
are without reverence for king or kai-
ser, magnate or millionaire. Of humor
they have a fund of the dry, quaint or-
der, representative of this section, es-
pecially of this neck of land, that is
congenital and unconscious. They are
of sturdy stock and preserve their stur-
diness unimpaired. The spirit of the old
Norsemen is in them. They are quiet,
reticent, courageous, daring and omnis-
cient of the sea. They will perform a
most heroic act without suspecting that
it is beyond the ordinary and will brave




Trouble In the Browning Society.
A reading of a line of Browning's
which I don't think has ever presented
itself to the Browning society was offer-
ed in all honesty the other day by a
young gentleman reading aloud to a
young lady, at her request-need I say
she was a Bostonienne?-the "One
Word More' with which Browning
dedicated his "Men and Women" to
his wife.
He who blows through bronze may breathe
through silver
the reader gave forth with cadenced
correctness, but
He who paints in fresco takes a hairbrush
was too much for an honest, literal soul.
He read it "hair-brush"-hyphenized,
accent on "hair"-too evidently under-
standing and unquestionably accepting
it not as a refined implement of art, but
as the homely adjunct of the dressing
table. Nothing can ever make that line
again, for that young woman, fit into
a poet's dream. Nor will he ever be
asked to read Browning to her more.-
Boston Transcript.

The Growth of Electric Railroads.
'"The growth of the use of electricity
as a motive power is remarkable," said
E. L. Carson, an electrician of Boston.
"Two years ago there were only 161
electric railways in the United States,
while now there are over 500. Six years
ago an electric car with two motors cost
$4,500, while the bids for the last con-
tract I knew to be given ran from $640
to, $1,500, and the former was the price
at which it was given, the manufactur-
ers being reliable men. It seems singular
that with such a constantly increasing
demand there should be such competi-
tion as to run prices down to one-seventh
of what was paid six years ago, but such
is the case, and before it stops there
will be very few lines of street railroad
in the country not run by electricity."-

cratic State Convention-Touching th(
Chord of Memory-An Implicit Hlope-A
Great Drought-The "Abundant Most."
[Special Corresrondence.]
YEDDO, Ind., Aug. 30.-If there is
-one good thing more than another, it
is an old fashioned rabble rousing
. Democratic state convention in Indians
.such as I have recently enjoyed, and
next to the convention is the fun of
traveling through the country and hear.
ing the people talk about it. And this
is the talking season in the farming dis.-
tricts. County and district conventions
of the four parties, county fairs, har-
vest home festivals, races, stock shows
and old settlers' meetings follow each
other in rapid succession, and the visit.-
ing newspaper man's daily life is a con-
tinuous round of cold chicken and home-
made pickles, cold ham and biscuit,
pound cake, pie and doughnuts, washed
down with root beer and noncircus lem-
Enjoyment? The word is inadequate
to the fact. It makes me feel young
again to sit at the root of a big tree and
see the bountiful dinner spread on the
top of a log or on the grass, to have it
handed around by the ruddy farmers'
daughters, to watch the children eat,
and to eat and talk politics alternately.
It is the same old blessed thing-the
talk, I mean-all about the hard times
and the late drought, congress and the
scarcity of money, the "amazin crop of
mast" and the promise for fruit, the
new preacher at "Yellow Heaven"
church, the last baptizing and the next
quarterly meeting. It is so reviving to
S hear the men talk about hard times just
as they did 42 years ago, when I first
rode the old brown mare to a Baptist
association (no railroad and no Yeddo
then) in the deep green woods of this
vicinity. The old mare has been in
horse heaven these many years, but it
thrilled me with an emotion the city
S boy can never know when an old farmer
called me to his wagon with, "Johnnie,
I want to show you some of Old Roan's
stock. "
The Quakers are still here and hold-
ing their own. Some 60 years ago about
800 families of that faith came almost


and others soon followed, among them
the father of Hon. Joe Cannon, bring-
ing the future statesman with him.
Their peculiar speech is like musio in
the ears of one familiar with it in child-
hood, and their greeting by Christian
names touches a chord of memory that
vibrates to an old, old music. It is:
"John, this is Charity Brown, child of
that Israel Brown that thee used to play
with. Charity, thee remembers James
B. This is his boR, John, just come
from Washington." The "child" is 30
if she's a day, and the "boy" dates
from Van Buren's administration, but
it is all tthsamchorde old Quakers,

who knew both in infancy. "Friend
Hadley, is thy boy up from his fever
yet?" "So, as to be stirring, Amos."
The state convention; was only an
average of its kind, but it was interest-
ing to watch the delegates pouring in-
the swarthy Hoosiers from the bottom
lands of the Ohio and lower Wabash,
the long and lank ruralists from "The
Knobs," as the hilly region in the
southeast is called, the wildly enthusi-
astic Democrats from Cooper's district
and the more reserved and citified busi-
ness men of the gas belt. If a well in-
formed man had been brought here in a
trance and awakened in the hall, he
would have known at a glance that this
was Indiana and these were Democrats.
A third or more of the delegates were
in their shirt sleeves, their coats hang-
ing over the backs of the seats. On the
platform only were there full dress and
S high dignity-district chairmen and
convention officials in conventional
black, and in the front center as chair-
man Governor Matthews, looking every
inch a man and enjoying his ovation,
for this was emphatically his day.
The convention's history need not be
repeated, but a few political "straws"
must be named, as they appear in the
A subsequent talk of the country people.
The platform was as long as the moral
law, and if any odds a little more rad-
ical than the national platform of 1892,
and the most radical portions were most
loudly cheered. Congressman Cooper,
though absent, was, with the governor,
the hero of the day. The success of his
bill for taxing greenbacks has filled the

Parents and others interested in the
education of the young will no doubt be
pleased to learn that the trustees of our
school are expecting to continue the im-
provements begun a year ago in provid-
ing the bst teachers available. The
principal, Prof. H. E. Graham, whose
whole heart-is in the work of education,
has taken a deep interest in improving
the standard of our schools, and has,
during his work at the Ocala Teachers'
Institute, where were assembled over
two hundred teachers, selected two la-
dies, specially qualified, to be recom-
mended to our county board as most de-
airable assistant teachers. The boa-d hap
already shown its appreciation of the inm-
portance of progressing in many ways,
'especially in denominating the Fernan-
dina school as a graded school of the
county, and will no doubt follow up this
good work by appointing the necessary
,The people of Fernandina and of Nas-
saui can, thererore, feel assured that their
children can now have schooling under
professional teachers. The discipline and
moral standard will have special atten-
tion, the high school grade will be con-
iinued, and there is reason to believe
that, with the general support and co-
operation of parents, Fernandina may
yet earn an improved reputation for her
schools. Schools are expected to open
onMonday, October 1.

Governor Mitchell has sent out notices
requiring all claimants under the act
providing for the refunding of the direct
tax to file their claims, properly authen-
ticated, in the executive office on or
before December 1, 1894. The claimants
are all supposed to be in Nassau, Dural,
St., Johns, Volisia, Dade and Monroe
counties. See the notice published in
another column of this i.ine.

Chairman Wilson, of the ways and
means committee has been renominated,
muld the We;t Virginians will re-elect
him. If tlhe Democrats carry the next
hcoise, and there are reasons for the
belief that they will, Crisp will be the
next speaker and Wilson will be the
next ways and means committee. So
there may vet be a Wils,,n tariff bill.-

If Collector Baltzell desires to become
thoroughly familiar with the details of
his office before appointing his regular
deputy, and arranges with the present
incumbent, Depuity Howell, to instruct
him in the details of his office, it is not
essential that he ask the permission of
any of his self constituted guardians.

The benefits of the new t9hriff are al-
ready being fe:t by consumers. Leading
jbbersare sending out discount sheets to
their customers, stating that the new

inal laws do not contemplate, and courts, do
not recognize, the potency of such a defense.
The "three young men" upon whose
"folly" the Independents are endeavor-
ing to acquit themselves of conmplicity
in the outrage, arei fully old enough to
know what they were about. Two of
them are office holders under, the pres-
ent city administration in Jacksonville,
which is opposed to the regular Democ-
racy in Duvai: county, and one of them is
no less a pe, oniag, than the city treas-

"The Democratic party of the state of
Florida, in convention assembled, reaf-
firms its alliance to Democratic princi-
ples as conceived by Jefferson, illustrated
by Jackson, exemplified by Cleveland
and promulgated by the Chicago plat-
"We recognize with feelings of pride
the unswerving integrity and patriotism
of President Cleveland, his executive
ability, his wisdom in maintaining a
sound and stable currency, and his stead-
fast adherence to Democratic principles.
"We hereby heartily endorse the pres-
ent state administration as wise, patriotic
and Democratic in its administration of
affairs. The principles on which the
great Democratic victory of 1894 was won
should not be sacrificed at the instance
of a few Democratic senators. We ap-
prove the course of the Democratic house
of representatives of the United States
in its efforts to relieve the people of all
unjust taxation and burdens. We con-
demn the course of the Democratic sena-
tors of the United States'who are resisting
the just demands of the immediate rep-
resentatives of the people. From the
people the Democratic party receives its
power; to the people its first duty is due.
We are opposed to all legislation for the
benefit of trusts and combines.
"We approve an amendment to the
constitution of the United States provid-
ing for the election of senators by direct
vote of the people of the several states.
"The people of the state being practi-
cally deprived of speedy redress by reason
of the accumulation of business in the
supreme court, it is the sense of this con-
vention that the legislature should pro-
vide for a temporary commission to aid
the court in the despatch of its business.
"We recommend that the legislature
make ample and suitable appropriations
for the maintenance of. the state troops,
so that we may have a thoroughly organ-
ized and well equipped corps of militia
in the state.
"Believing that the permanency of free
institutions is dependent upon fair ex-
presions at the polls of the voice of the
people, we, therefore, recommend that
the legislature at its next session pass
such an election law as will best preserve
the purity of the ballot and give each
contending party a representative in the
conduct of elections.

commission as one belonging properly to
the several counties of the state for them

.9 Not 1091uch of a Joke.
The Independents are endeavoring to
dismiss the abduction of Mr. Helven-
ston, a member of the committee on
credentials, at the Palatka convention,
as a joke. It would appear, however,
that it is a serious matter, and the con-
vention passed a resolution instructing
the executive committee to employ a
special counsel to assist in the prosecu-
tion of the persons directly implicated in
the outrage.
A gentleman from Jacksonville con-
firms the original reports of the kidnap-
ping, and says that the matter is even
graver than it was at first represented to
be. The Florida Citizen of the 27th
contains the following editorial on the

The Independents pretend to view the
allegedd abduction," as they call it, of dele-
gate Helvenston at Palatka in thle light of a
joke and airily dismiss it as a "ridiculous
Section 2399 of the Revised Statutes pro-
vides that:
"Whoever, without lawful authority, for-
cibly or secretly confines or imprisons any
other person within this state, against his
will, or confines or inveigles, or kidnaps
another person, with intent,either to cause
him to be secretly confined or imprisoned in
this state against his will, or to cause him
to be sent out of this state against his will;
and whoever sells, or in any manner trans-
fers, for any term, the service or labor of
another person who has been unlawfully
seized, taken, inv-igled or kidnapped from
this state to any other state, place or coun-
try, shall be punished by imprisonment in
the state prison not exceeding ten years."
The Independents will find the outrage
committed in their interest upon Professor
Helvenston no laughing matter. And they
will not be able to shift the burden of
responsibility for it upon "the folly of three
young men." To attempt to do so would
be a cowardly assertion of their over zealous
adherents on the first indication of serious
consequences for an act that the. "three
young men" doubtless had good reason to
believe would be eminently agreeable to the
Independent managers.
This "ridiculous affair" will be thoroughly
investigated by the courts, and it is not very
likely that any court in Florida will decide

To the Editor of The Mirror:
I address this letter to your waste basket,
and should it be so fortunate as to keep out
of the capacious maw of that necessary
article of office furniture, I will have built
better than I knew. Great minds, like that
of the writer, must seek an outlet for unused
accumulations. As the tides of thought
come dashing against the incasements of the
brain the great strain upon the craniological
structure often places the victim in the
hands of a commission in lunacy. In order
to avoid a contingency of this kind, I arn
persuaded to seek an outlet through your
valuable paper.
The great political questions now agita-
ting the people of Nassau county and the

political thought by closely following the
advice here (gratuitously) given. .Then will

once more among the debris in the back
yard of our temples of justice.
I received a letter from Kalanimazoo, Mich.
some time ago, from a brevet uncle of mine,
asking about the Strathmore Hotel. Amelia
Island, Fernandinia, etc. The subject mat-
ter of the letter plainly indicated that our
little state is attracting considerable atten-
tion -among the northern states aS a- good
place to emigrate to. He asked a n timber
of questions regarding the productiVe luali-
ties of the soil, also the social statt O0' the
people of the little peninsular. Of CO irse
the writer, in answer, said a good tliy
pleasant things of our state and people. T.e
pleasing feature of the letter from my dear
relative was the absence of the usual closing
paragraph found in my large supply of mail
/from that section, which reads: Please

Peninsular railroad is responsible for this

Equipped with but little education,
Van Horne began the struggle of life at
13 years of age as a telegrapher on the
Illinois Central railroad. Later he be-
came ticket agent and telegraph oper-
ator on the Chicago and Alton, and by
hard work and strict attention to busi-
ness was finally promoted to be superin-
tendent of telegraph. He is very fond
of a good beefsteak, and when he was
supeAintendeit of the road's dining car
service he abolished side dishes and sub
stituted beefsteak. The plan did not
work with the general public, and the
side dishes, like the cat, came back.
Van Horne continued educating him-
self by hard study, and his advance-
ment in knowledge kept pace with his
rise in the railroad world. He was di-
vision superintendent of the Chicago
and Alton for three years and then be-
came general superintendent of the St.
Louis, Kansas City and Northern, a po-
sition he held two years. He then began
an eight years' service as general man-
ager and president of the Southern Min-
nesota. After two years' work as gen-
eral superintendent of the Chicago and
Alton and two more in the same capaci-
ty with the Milwaukee and St. Paul. he
became general manager of the Cana-
dian Pacific in 1882 and was promoted
to the presidency in 1888.
It was predicted that the Canadian
Pacific would prove a financial failure,
but under Van Horne's management it
has always paid dividends, and his able
management caused the queen to knight
him. He is an expert geologist, a clever
amateur painter and a connoisseur in
all matters pertaining to art.

An absentminded landlord called on
a tenant to condole with him on the
death of a valuable cow. The cause of
its decease had been enveloped in mys-
tery, and while explaining it the land-
lord, though a kind and sympathizing
peison, went off into the clouds. The
last words of thenarrative were, "And
can you believe it, my lord, when we

Now Miss Wrigh.'t Doubtless Wishes Gen-
eral Ezeta Had Not Spared His Enemnies.
General Autonio Ezeta, the fugitive
ex-vice presiv.n, *:of Salvador, who re-
cently arrived in San Francisco on board
the Unitedl States warship Bennington,
is in his pres .lt predicament, it is said,
because Miis- Ida Dent Wright, an
American gi' to whom he is engaged,
prevailed upon him to spare the lives of
men who ar- now thirsting for his
blood. Until very recently General
Ezeta and his brother Carlos were in
complete control of Salvador. Carlos
was president and Antonio vice presi-
About a year ago, while Miss Wright
was living in Salvador, General Rafael
Guiteraz and others started a revolution
to overthrow the. Pzeta government.
Guiteraz and nearly a score of other con-
spirators were. captured and sentenced to
death. The day they were sentenced
Miss Wright became the betrothed of
General Antonio Ezeta and pleaded so
hard for the lives of the conspirat rs
that they were set free. Now Ezeta is
very sorry he listened to the fair one's

cials. In consequence of this insulting
conduct retaliation was insisted upon,
but happily, owing to the existence of a
Strong peace party in the cabinet, war
for the time was averted.
Korea's Independence Recognized.
"In August, 1875, a Japanese man-of-
war en route to China and carrying a
Japanese plenipotentiary stopped at
Chemulpo for fuel and water, but her
boats were fired on by the Koreans, and
two of her men were wounded. There-
upon the crew of the vessel attacked and
burned the Korean fortress. Subsequent-
ly Korea sent a letter of apology, and a
treaty was concluded in which the in-
dependence of Korea was recognized by
Japan. It was also agreed that each
country should be represented at the
court of the other.
"Korea now began to make progress
in civilization. A military school was
established in which Japanese instruct-
ors were employed, her young men
were sent to Japan to be educated, and
her local administration improved.
These reforms, however led to further
difficulties, being distasteful to the con-
servatives. The troops attacked the pal-
ace, and the Japanese minister, with
the women and children of the legation,
was forced to take refuge on an Eng-
lish man-of-war and return to Nagasaki.
Reparation was at once demanded and
accorded, but China and Japan now
both stationed troops in the Korean cap-
ital, and two parties were formed in the
peninsular kingdom, one sympathizing
with Japanese and the other with Chi-
nese methods, between which strained
relations have since existed. The present
war is an indirect result.
China's Desire For Control.
"In December, 1884, the parties came
to blows, the king asked protection from
the Japanese, the king's mother was
seized by the Chinese, the king subse-
quently rejoined his mother, and the
residence of th.e Japanese legation was
mobbed and set on fire. Once more rep-
aration was demanded, but affairs be-
tween China and Japan had become so
serious as to require the personal inter-
vention of embassadors extraordinary.
Japan was represented by Count Ito, her
chief minister of state, and China by
Li Hung Chang, the viceroy whose
name has long been familiar as her lead-
ing statesman and soldier.
"In the convention that followed it
was agreed that China and Japan should
withdraw their troops from Korea; that
neither power should thereafter send a
force thither without giving previous
notice to the other, and that the Chinese
soldiers who had taken part in the at-
tack on the Japnese should be pun-
ished. Friendly relations were thus es-
tablished between the two empires, and
these might have. continued but for a
renewal of the old disturbances and the
evideent determination of China to exer-
cise chief control over the Hermit King-
dom. This Japan will never permit as
long as she is able to occupy her place
as the vanguard of eastern civilization.
All we ask is that Korea shall be let
"I wish you to bder in mind, said Mr.
Tanabe in conclusion, "that in*thus re-
ferring to past history I speak only as a

country." F. G. DE FONTAINE.

Isabella Proctor Says Fright Is the Cause

ATLANTIC CITY, Aug. 30.-Of all
fhe outdoor amusements in which a
woman can indulge swimming is prob-
ably the most important. Not only
does it bring nearly all the muscles
of the body into play and increase the
expansive power of the lungs, but
possession of the accomplishment fre-
quently decides the question of life and
death. While it is rather difficult to
learn a good stroke without the aid of
a master unless the beginner is a child,
a few lessons- from a competent teacher

are enough to give the pupil a sufficient
knowledge of the correct motion to al-
low her to perfect herself alone.
The ability to swim a ,long distance
without giving out is of great value and
is seldom possessed by women, who can
swim 10 or 15 feet very well, but then
collapse as hopelessly as if they could
not pwim at all., It is a good plan to
swim parallel with the shore in. shallow
water, and when tired attempt to turn
over on the back and float without let-
ting the feet touch the bottom. The pow-
er of changing from swimming to float-
ing, and vice versa, is important in deep
water, as it gives the swimmer a chce
to rest and then resume her progress
when she has taken breath. The turning
is accomplished by taking the stroke on
one side only and straightening out the
body as it rolls over. Treading water is
most easily learned by slipping into it
from swimming. The pupil should
swim out a, foot or two beyond her
depth, gradually shorten and lower the
arm stroke and let the feet sink and the
leg stroke become alternate. At first the
head will sink to the lips, but it will
not go under unless confidence is lost
and the stroke becomes rapid and con-
fused. After a little the head and
shoulders will rise above the surface,
but as this practice is rather exhausting
it is safer to swim back into shallow
water before becoming tired. For the
side stroke, which is very rapid and
graceful, turn the bod* slightly, hold-
ing the head in a horizontal position,
and take a slow up and down stroke
wiith tha lower arm. while the unner

our country, and China has generally
been a participant. Friendly relations
between the three countries ceased as
long ago as 1587, and as a penalty for
hostile acts Hideyoshi, the Japanese
commander in chief, who, by the way,
was the son of a humble foot soldier,
demanded tribute. This being refused,
an immense army, consisting of 180,000
men and accompanied by a fleet aggre-
gating 9,000 officers and sailors, invaded
Korea, and moving, rapidly overcame all
"Meanwhile the emperor of China had
dispatched a large force to succor the
Koreans. These also met with defeat,
but a second Chinese army followed,
, 1 the war on both sides was prose-
with great vigor until, the plague
havig, broken out in the Japanese camps

and iuppKs becoming exhausted, pro-
p a ewere made by a Chinese
nvoyo, an ,yoshi dictated certain
articles as a bas.s 2f treaty. They were
not accepted, however and Hideyoshi
prepared to attack Chini, and in the
Seven~t of conquest to transfeir;he capital
. '"The var continued, with varying
Success, antil 1598, a period of six years,
-wJhen, the Chinese being routed on both
a:.lamd and seas, Hideyoshi, then lying at
.the point of death, issued orders for the
recall of the Japanese armies from Ko-
r=rea. A few years later Korea sent an
,envoy to Japan carrying gifts and suing
.or peace. The overtures were favorably
received, and amicable relations were
established between the two countries."

Japan's Policy.
In the course of the conversation the
writer remarked to tho chancellor that,
"inasmuch as China and Japan are so
similarly situated in the east, they
ought, naturally to give support to each
other rather than resort to the arbitra-
ment of arms."
"That has certainly been tho policy
of Japan, "was the reply, "since upon
a union of friendship anid confidence de-
peunds much of their advancemenrt, in
the path of enlightenment and that
mutual prosperity upon which depends
the development of all other nations in
the far cast. And this feeling has re-
peatedly found expression by our high
officials, even in the presence of the
most provoking circumstances.
"For instance, throughout the period
of nearly 800 years following the war I
have described, known as the Tokugawa
period, it had been customary for Korea
on each occasion of a coronation to send
an embassadbr for the purpose of con-
firming the friendly relations between
the two states. Soqn after the restora-
tion in Japan, in 1867, the government
dispatched an envoy to Korea to convey
intelligence of the fact and to renew ex-
pressions of amity. The Koreans, how-
ever, refused to recognize the envoy or
accept his message, owing ostensibly to
the fact that the term 'great empire
of Japan' was employed in the impe-
rial letter., Despite this treatment, at a
lator date the Japanese sent home cer-
tain Koreans who had been shipwrecked
and took the opportunity of renewing
