Oh, we met the Spanish squadron
In the choppy China sea:
With Old Glory" up above us,
And'our Commodore Dewey;
And a brace o' Yankeeleamen- ,
(Every lightin' tar a freeman)
And the way we trounced the haughty
Was beautiful to see.
We shelled 'em out to seaward-
And we shelled 'em on the shore;
And we trained our guns to leeward
For a hundred shots or more;
For the rag that hung above us,
And the Yankee hearts that love us-
Why we made the eagle hump himself
And show 'em how to soar.
Oh, the decks was slippin' bloody,
And the guns was smoking' hot,
And the center o' the scrimmage,
Was an interesting' spot;
And the beggars kept salutin'
In a disrespectful shooting'
Till we sent 'em Yankee manners
In a dozen ton o' shot.
Our ears was full o' cotton,
And our legs was all a-reel;
But the Yankee grit was in us
And our guns was full o' steel;
And we kept the greasers hoppin'
With the shells that we was dropping'
Till we filled 'em full o' blazin' hell
From the reekin' deck to keel.
Oh, we bored 'em full o' trouble
As a seive is full o' holes,
And we chucked 'em under water
Like a nest o' drownin' moles.
With the blessin' o' St. Mary
And the Yankee military-
Why, we gave them twenty volleys
For the resting' o' their souls.
They fought us square and honest,
And they spoiled our purty shine;
And they went down, game as chickens
When we sunk 'em in the brine;
But while the eagle's screaming'
And the stars and stripes a streamin'
Why, we ain't the boys to say it-
That they didn't toe the line.
Oh, they thought they'd have a bull-
With your Uncle Sammy's crew;
And they figured out that dodgin'
Was the proper thing to do-
But they missed their calculation
In a-sizin' up the nation-"
'Cause there hain't no room fer Span-

Eriusson's Historic Irouclad and Its 1TIp
to Hampton Roads.
The Monitor had been formally com-
missioned on Fob. 25, 1862, under com-
mand of Lieutenant John L. Worden,
U. S. N. Twelve officers and 45 eunlist-
ed men comprised her personnel. Chief
Engineer A. 0. Stimers, the superin-
tendent of construction, went to sea in
the vessel to observe hef performance
and give the officers th u btufic of his
knowledge. He was, as stated Ly Colo-
nel W. C. Church in his "Lifo of John
Ericsson," "the only man on board who
thoroughly understood the characteris-
tics of the vessel."
The voyage to Hampton Roads was
eventful, and almost ended the career
of the Monitor, and with it the fate of
Ironclads for an indefinite time. Rough
weather was encountered, and water
broke over the since and blower trunks,
nearly putting out the fires and stopping
'02e pC=Pft f. 0--s -c f f to es"en-lv f6.-r fn%
or five hours on one occasion. Loss by
foundering was imminent at this time,
because of the great quantity of water,
that got into the vessel under the base
of the turret and through the hawse
pipes. The blowers stopped because the
belts got wet and the engine and fire-,
rooms filled with noxious gas from the
fires and had to be abandoned. In try-
ing to remedy this trouble the chief en-
gineer, Mr. Newton, and his assistants
were overcome by the gas and were car-
ried to the top of the turret, where they
revived, though they were thought dead
when dragged out of the engine room.
Trouble and danger also resulted from
the wheel ropes jumping off the steer-
ing wheel and becoming jammed.
After two days of toil and peril the
Monitor escaped from the dangers of
the bea into the presence of a new ene-
my. Late in the afternoon of March 8
she passed in at the capes of Chesapeake,
and from the sound of shotted guns
knew that her time for action had come
thus early in her career. The Merrimao
was abroad that very afternoon, and
wreck and destruction fouled her wake.
A rude improvised ironclad herself, she
marked a new era in naval warfare, and
before her lay a large flt of supposedly
formidable ships of war as helpless as a
flock of sheep assailed by a wolf.
Night fell before the Monitor came
up to the seemingly doomed Union fleet
in Hampton Roada. The Merrimac had
glutted her thirst for blood for the day
and was at anchor and at rest, but in
her silence in presence of the ships that
she meant to attack in the morning she
stood for all that men understand by
the dominion of the seas. Lighted by
the burning wreck of the frigate Con-
gress, the Monitor moved up toward
Newport News and anchored near the
stranded Minnesota, upon which vessel,
it was certain, the first blow of .the
z Lrrow would falL
From either a historical or a theat-
rical point of view the stage settings
were now complete. With the night the
curtain had fallen upon the last of a
long series of glorious deeds, performed
under an ordor of seamanship or sea
tactics that had already long passed its
meridian, but which for romance and
chivalry excelled any that had preceded
it, and, it must be admitted, excelled.
that which was now to rudely supplant
it. A new type of sea warrior and a
new type of warship were about to ap-
pear upon the waters. The engineer's
machine of John Ericsson was to face
the fabric that represented the engineer-
ing ingenuity of the American south,
and the result of the Abcounter would
inflict fright upon the romance of the
sea and transform the masted navies of
the world into useless relics in a day.-
F. M. Benuet, U. S. N., in Cassier's
How She Got Her Name.
Mrs. Dayton of Highland Park hai
jnst engaged a new cook. The addition
to the servants looked promising as she
came in arrayed in all her finery and
waited for "the missus" to talk with
her before going to work.
"What is your name?" asked Mrs.
"Lay-ourie, ma'am," said the culi-
"Lay-ourie; exclaimned the lady of
the house. "What a peculiar name) I
never heard it bef-re iu my life. Is that
a nickname or was it given you when
you were christened?"
November's raw air warned negligent
householders that it was time to lay in
their winter's supply of coal, and ev-
erywbero up andl down the wind swept
length of the city's residence streets
rattling coal troughs barred the pedes-
trian's path and discharged thuir black
torrents into insatiable sidewalk scut-
tles. Mrs. Matthews, who lived on quiet
but highly select Prospect, street, had
ordered tenu tons of c:nl put into her
cellar, and the first instalmeut had ar-
rived-a two ton load-got to the crust
of the steep, narrow street by much
hard pulling ou the part of the horses
and steuturian shouting on the part of
their Irish ';river.
"'.1r. Coal Maul" cried Mrs. Mat-
thews fri.m the up stairs bny window.
"Be ::'rue y..n close the coal scuttle when
you o. Drin't leave it open. It is so
lar,.' semoeborly might fall iu."
"'Yis, mum," assented the driver,
'raisiL, his grimy face aud smiling in
the dazzling way that distinguishes
coal heavers and negroes. Then, with
a -prversity as eublimely unconscious
aS tLhat of inanimate obj,-c-te themselves
he wcnt away when he had finished his
task, having the iron lid of the scuttle
lenuing against the Eide of the house.
Three or four iniuites later a small,
dapper, nicely drt-sfed young man step-
ped out of the street door next to the
Malthews' uud turned to make his final
adius to a lad:.', slightly faded, but
still young, who had acco:upaiiud him
to the t hreh.old. He backed away, bow-
ing and hul-lipg his hat politely and
jauntily a few inches above his bead.
Just as the final "Thank you; goodby 1"
had escaped his lips end the door had
closed upuu tho lady the young man
whirled around, hovered for a fateful,
streunous instant upon the yawning
edge of the coal hole and disappeared!
Mr. Dennis Murphy, happening to turn
his head at the same moment and be-
holding the sudden ingulfment of the
young gentleman, uttered but the two
words, "Howly murtherl" and lashing
his steeds into clumsy, galloping flight
disappeared with terrific clatter down
the cobble paved hill.
But Mr. Murphy was not the only
witness of the tragic disappearance of
the young man who had emerged from
52. Miss Minerva Matthews had stop-
ped for a moment at the little table in
the bay window to get a book of verse,
from which she wished to make a quo-
tation. At the precise moment, when
she laid her hand upon the volume, her
eyes, carelessly lifted after the unob-
servant manner of one in deep thought,
had beheld a young man sink apparent-
ly into the earth; directly in front of
the quiet, respectable house in which
she and her mother and her maiden aunt
kept themselves aloof from the world.
Miss Minerva did not scream. She
simply said. "Mother!" But the man-
ner in which she uttered that word was
infinitely more startling than any inar-
ticulate outcry could possibly have
Mrs. Matthews came scurrying out
of her room with a face as closely ap-
pr>c:.iating an animated interrogation
poiit as might well be.
"Alother I A man has just fallen into
our coal scuttle!"
Mrs. Matthews gasped convulsively
and collapsed into a chair. Twice she
tried to frame articulate words, but the
shock hau been too great. She could

Miss Minerva Matthews fled down
stairs as fa t as she could go. But as
she opened the door at the head of the
cellar stairway she stopped for a mo-
ment and shuddered from head to foot.
It was like the initial plunge of the
swimmer into cold water. After that
the worst of the terrible shrinking was
over. She picked up her skirts and
darted down into the twilight of the
The coal bin was a large one and was
boarded up to within a foot or two of
the beams overhead. There was a verti-
cally sliding door in sections, two of
which-there were three of them-had
been dropped into place ere the arrival
of the coal. The big bin was therefore
practically "a tight box," and the
young man who had fallen intojt, not
understanding its construction, was
most securely imprisoned. It was vastly
to his credit (so Minerva thought) that
he did not raise a t rrible outcry, de-
manding to be released. Surely he must

confine himself so considerately to un-

The young lady flew to the bin anmd
removed the top seotion of the door. As
she did so she found herself face tor
face with a most woebegone, amooched,
demoralized and bewildered young man.
SFor a moment the two young people
stared at each other speechlessly. Then,
as if moved by a simultaneous impulse,

noting his questioning hesitation.

his grimy hands and besmirched linen,

that overrides all other feeling. Isn't

I could make a preliminary toilet?"
Minerva led thbo way into the base-

tubs, running water and plenty of soap.

the geyser of laughter that was gushing

in a fit of suppressed laughter for a
minute or two, and then broke forth
and darted up stairs for the towels.

young man had fled.
Minerva mechanically gathered up a
pair of mournful cuffs that had rolled
under the shadow of the tuba. Their
jewelry was of the most modern kind- '

texture and quality. "I' guess he must
have been a gentleman as far as he

V.erdl and the Priest.
Verdi. when a boy, had a gift for
Latin, and the village priest advised
him to become a priest. Meanwhile the
lad became an office boy in Barezzi's
wbolesale grocery store, and for a little
over $7 a year played the organ in the
church at Roncole, but one day it hap;
liened that Rov. Dr. Selotti, who had
decided that the boy should be a monk,
was ofliciatiug at mass while Verdi
played the organ. The priest was struck
with the unusual beauty of the music,
anrd -at the close of the service expressed
a desire to see the organist. Verdi ap-
peared, and the priest recognized him
as the pupil whom he had sought to
turn from music to theology.
"'Whose music were you playing?"
asked Seletti. "Lt was beautiful."
Verdi said shyly that ho had brought
no music with him that day and had
been improvising. "So I played as I
felt," said he.
"Ah I" exclaimed Seletti. "I advised
you wrongly. You must be no priest,
but a musician."
After that the tray was easier. The,
priestly influence on his side opened
many a door to him.-IYouth's Com-

The Golden Gray Eye.
I might pile Ossa upon Pelion in the
way of description of gray eyes called
from fiction. There is, however, ene
type of gray eye whose appearance in
story I have not yet noted, says Nina
Allen in Lippincott's.
W\Ve have had gray eyes which "re-
sembled nothing so much as moss
agates." S&.a gray eye-s arre not uncom-
mou. Am-lia HRives has bestowed upon
liva. in "The Witnss of the San,"
great violet gray eycs, likee ruin wash-
ed nuierbyts," while Mr. Paul Leices-
ter Ford has recently introduced us to a
pair of slate colored eyes.
But at the pre.cnt writing I have yet
to mn et with golden gray ey-s in fio-
tiona. They are to be found, however,
in nature, the most lumiuons of all
eyes, I think, the iris about the edge a
soft old gold or golden brown, gradually
melting toward the pupil into a warm
gray. This lonely culor I have seen in
the eyes of a dog and of a child-the
eyes of the dog wisftul, appealing, pa-
thetic with uuntterable things; the
child's speaking of a houl as yet nudark-
ened by Ohades of the prison honse and
splendid with the light that never was
on sea or land.
To the novelist desiring something
new in eyes I would respectfully recom-
mend the golden gray.

A report by George Hoare, one of thei
officials of the British Central Africa
protectorate, summarized in the local (
gazette, contains some curious details
of the crocodiles of Lake CUicta. They
would seem to Le strict vegetarians, for
not only have they never been known
to attack the men fishing in the lako,
but their tracks were shown by the
natives to the writer at a distance of
several miles from its Eshc.rs, whence
they are said to travel overland in
search of roots. This is contrary to the
habits of all known species of croco-
diles, which are, in the first place,
purely carnivornos, and, in the second,
so helpless cn land from their inability
to turn, except in a large circle, that
they never leave the i-nnediute vicinity
of their watery or muddy home. Efforts
will accordingly be made to obtain a
specimen of this i.normal type of the
formidable amphibian.-London Tablet.

things they acknowledged as superior
to the injientions of the olden time,
for the n,-st part they bewailed the
decadence of the wur.d and human
Then one of them became ill, and
mthihing pleased limn-not even the

came to see him. He wanted uld-

When lie was at his lowest his old
clium called, bringing a small mys-
terious looking package which the
sick man put nuder his pillow.
"Where did you find it?" he asked
fe b I y.
"In.a little old-fashioned place on
a back street. where some nice people
have a little shop. It's the veir3
same we used to buy when we were
boys. I felt that it Iould cure you
as soon as I saw it,"
"I've got stacks of things I don't
want," said the sick man, "but
nothing that'll set me up like this,"
and he greedily mumbled something
between his lips, not fuigetting to
say: "Have a bite, too. Maybe you
need it as much as I do." '
"I got some for myself," said the
old churn, "and it took me right
back to wlien I was a boy and-"
SHere the iurse sent him away, but
from that huom thie sick man revived,
atd in a few days was up and about.
"I'd like to know what that other
old chap brought himn," the doctor
said to the nurse.
"Nothing but some pink and white
sticks of old-fashioned peppermint
candy-they couldn't have helped
him any," replied the nuise looking

Clock Wound by the Sun.
lMr. Burton of Idlianapolis has a
clock which has not been would in
three years and six months, but
which has rnn all the time. It is
wound by a more reliable source that
any human. It may be said to be
wound by the solar system. In this
invention the axiom of heat expand-
ing co!d contracting is the basis.
The clock is wound by changes of'
the temperature, the principal force
being in the day and niight differ
ences. Mr. Burton found that
there is an average difference of
twenty degrees in the temperature of
the night and the day. Tle day, of
course, is the warmer. The heat of'
the day expands the atmosphere and
the lower temperatureof the night
This is how Mr. Burton applies
the force to his clock-an ordinary
,,ld-style clock-using a weight:
Outside of his house he has a tin
tank ten feet high and nine inches
in diameter. It is air-tight. From
it a trbe runs into the cellar. This
.ube leads to a cylindrical reservoir,

Already this "new scientific course of
medicine," has permanently cured thou-
sands of apparently hopeless cases.
The Doctor considers it his religious
duty-a duty which he owes to human-

Offered freely, is enough to commend it,
and more so is the perfect confidence of
the great chemist making the proposition.
He has proved the dreaded consump.

There will be no mistake in sending -

Thil story runs that Lord Comp-

of Sir Jhlin Spencer, one of the most
opulent ,if London's merchant prin-
ces, proverbially known at the time
as "-Rich bpencer." Sir John by no
means aippioved of the advances of
thle yu',g courtier, and positively
refused his consent to the marriage;
the course of true love, however,
never uniing smooth, Loid Comp-
toll devised a plan to outwit Sirt
John and carry ,ff his lady I)ve.
A bribe to the baker enabled himn
to d(i.-g i'e liimself and deliver the
lo1' avs one morning; as soon as the
basket was emptied the lady got in,
and Liord Compto,,n wvas boldly carry-
ing ih;s precious load downu-tairs
when he was met by Sir Jolhn, who,
;uckily not, recougiziing himtu, gave
him a ,ix-pence ats a reward lfor be-
ing so early, obserN ing that that was
the way to thrive.
Oin discovering the ti ruthi Sir John
was so angry that lie tisiiheriited

only made up through intervention
