WHERE COMPASS IS AT FAULT
Why Commanders of Vessels No Long

The ordinary magnetic compass has
one great fault; its needle does not
point to the north pole, but is always
some distance to one side or the other
of the true North 'ine. Further, this
deviation varies from year to year,
and it is seldom the same in any two
parts of the world. This kind of com compass,

so mounted that it can turn In any
direction. If its axle can swing on its
mounting, a heavy wheel rotating at
high speed will point always In the
same direction. The gyro-compass Is
set while the ship is in harbor, and
no matter how much the ship rolls, or
what turns she makes, its wheel re remains

Owing to Its jointed mounting It does
not follow the movements of the ship.

"Won't be no more cabs till they be begin

The Journal reporter started to toward

stopped short in his tracks.

but not at us, for he did not see us.
The bright hall behind him was beau beautiful

Mr. Schulmeyer agreeing with Grist,

that Beasley had surely become in insane;

been seen. Argument became a
wrangle; excitement over the remark remarkable
able remarkable scene we had witnessed, and,
perhaps, a certain sharpness partially
engendered by the risk of freezing,
led to some bitterness. High words
were flung upon the wind. Eventually,
Simeon Peck got the floor to himself
for a moment.

There was but one mind in the party
regarding this proposal. The next
minute saw us all cautiously sneak sneaking
ing sneaking into the side yard, a ragged line
of bent and flapping figures, black
against the snow.
Simeon Peck's expectations were ful fulfilledmore
filledmore fulfilledmore than fulfilled. Not only
were all the shades of the big three three-faced
faced three-faced bay-window of the "sitting room"
lifted, but (evidently on account of
the too great generosity of a huge log log-fire
fire log-fire that blazed in the old-fashioned
chimney-place) one of the windows
was half-raised as well. Here, in the
shadow juft beyond the rosy oblongs
of light that fell upon the snow, we
gathered and looked freely within.
Part ft the room was clear to our
view, though about half of It was shut
off from us by the very king of all

and dozers of candles, sumptuous in

posite Opposite the Tree, his back against the ;
wall, sat old Bob, clad In a dress of
state, part of which consisted of a
swallow-tail coat (with an overgrown
chrysanthemum in the buttonhole), a
red necktie, and a pink-and-silver lib liberty
erty liberty cap of tissue-paper. He was scrap scraping
ing scraping a fiddle "like old times come
again," and the tune he played was,
"Oh, my Liza, po' gal!" My feet
shuffled to It in the snow.
No one except old Rob was to be
seen in the room, but we watched him
and Hsf5hed breathlessly. When he
finished "Liza," he laid the fiddle
across his knee, wiped his face with
a new and brilliant blue silk handker handkerchief,
chief, handkerchief, and said:
"Now come de big speech."
The Honorable David Beasley, car carrying
rying carrying a small mahogany table, stepped
out from beyond the Christmas tree,
advanced to the center of the room;
set the table down; disappeared for
a moment and returned with a white
water-pitcher and a glass. He placed
these upon the table, bowed gracefully
several times, then spoke:

even In a blizzard.
She caught my hand with a strong,
quick pressure, and, bending her head
to mine, said in a soft whisper, close
to my ear:
"I heard everything that man said

Beasley again and stopped again.

audience politely applauding, and,
lifting the table and its burden, with withdrew;

fiddle to his chin and started to scrape
the preliminary measure of a quadrille.

EXPLAINING GROWTH OF FISH

Fishermen often wonder how fast

A one-year-old crappie in Missouri

one nine Inches, Mr. Foster says. Some
never get that lenpth and others keep
growing until the: weigh 3 pounds
or more. Bass iverage about five
inches at one year, eight Inches at
two, a foot at three, and on up the

OF BLOODY HISTORY
LATE in the summer of 1813 the

news of a terrible Indian massacre at
Fort ilimms, Ala. only a year before

The leader in this massacre was the
Creek chief Red Eagle (Lamochattee)
commonly known as Wiiatherford, a
half-breed, who had inherited the
worst qualities of both races.

to punish the Creeks. He made them

After suffering several defeats, the
Creeks prepared to make their last

one of the bloodiest in Indian history.
Weatherford lost 600 warriors, the

Indians sued for peace. One of the
conditions imposed by Jackson was
that Weatherford should be shackled
