Washington lias u baseball club and
that club Is in what ii known as the
League, struggling for tho pennant,
'which indicates the imsuu.ill champion
ship or the United States. Tho Wash
ington wonders have" now met two of
tho rival clubs of the. League and strug
gled with them for supremacy. Tho
course of events thus fur does not indi
cate to a certainty that tho pennant will
come to this city. Quite tho contrary.
The first club encountered by bur
mighty lcpieseiilnlive.s was tho Phila
delphia ng'gregatlou of muscular talent.
The I'hlladelphins, we regret to say,
trifled witli our people, and, to use a
phrase of thu youth of tho day,
"pounded them all" over tho Held."
This only for a day. Italn mercifully
Intervened and saved tho Washington
from further Ignomy for the time. Uu
dismayed, our band of heroes went to
!NcW York to wear out tho champions
during tho great Centennial week.
They have nearly Micceeded. They
have nearly worn out tho New York
ers ly keeping them nt work making
runs. Tho melancholy figures, "10 to
!)," )n favor of New York, which camo
ly telegraph yesterday, show how ex
hausted the champions must have been.
It has been a great week for tlio na
tional game in New York. Tho very
gecso on Stntcn Wand havo met in con
vention and decided to lay no moro
eggs. They admit sadly that thoy can't
rival tho Washington's.
It will bo observed by close students
of tho game, that as Intlmilcd, wo are
not yet absolutely suro of getting tho
pennant this year. In fact, It Is as well
lo admit that, considered strictly as
baseball players, tho Wnshlngtons arc
not a group to be proud of. Prom
another and grander point of view, how
ever, ilicy aro ndinlrublc. Thero Isn't
another club in the country that cau
Mand punishment with them, and, It
may be added, thero isn't another club
in the country likely to havo so much
to stand, They nro Christians, too.
When metaphorically smitten upon ono
check they turn thu other on tho instant.
They aro not vindictive.
Let us hopo our roprccnJ.-itlvosln tho

According to tho New York Herald's

Starting with the word AVashlngton,
write down 100 words just ns they oc
cur to J on. Let your second word bd
the one which Washington naturally
suggests to you. Possibly It will be
be cnpltol. It mny be president. Take
the word which first comes Into your
mind. In tho same manner lot tho
third word bo suggested by the second,
tho fourth by tho third, and so on. Bo
careful that the third won! Is nol sug
gestid by both the first and second.
Drop the first entirely, nnd let your
mind go from tho second alone to the
third. Having written this list of
Words, you will have furnished your
self with it cheap but Vciy useful mirror
of your mind. If you at o able to use
this minor you may discover somu very
scilous defects In your mental pro
ccses. You may dl"cover that you think
along certain lines too frciiuenUy, You
mny discover that you aio using su
perficial principles quite too much to
the neglect of moro tmpoitant laws
of mind. You will thus bo led to avoid
certain Unkings and ,to encourage
others of a moro philosophical niturc.

The I.ust nf Custer's Hand.
Sergeant Charles C. AVngncr Is tho
only survivor of General Custer's Im
mediate command. TJiu sergeant owed
his escape lo'n happy circumstance. Ho
was sent by General Custer with dis
patches to Major Reno, ordering the
latter to bring forward Uis forces.
AVhilo on this mission the deadly at
tack was made, and when ho returned
w ith Major Reno every soldier in tho
canyon was dead and all shorn of their
scalp locks but Custer. His hair tho
savages had respected. Sergeant AVtic
iter's life has been a succession of thrill
lug adventures. He lost a leg In n light
with Indians, having been hit by a
poisoned nirow, which necessitated the
amputation of the limb, and his ap

The remark of the Cardinal Is deemed
significant by a well known writer in a

that tho shortest way to get an Ameri

"I never kiss a woman On tho stage
unless It Is absolutely neegssary," said
Mr. Bellow. "Either the lines must
call for It, as they do In 'Antony and
Cleopatra,' which read: 'Of many
thousand kisses the poor last I lay upon
thy lips,' where tho words innke the
action absolutely necessary, or else tho
situation oi inc piny must ocmnnit it.
I mean by this that I .never of my own
Volition introduce a kiss Into tlio busi
ness of a piece.
'This Is not from any false Idea of
delicacy or sentiment upon the subject,

standpoint Is simply n piece of stage

Of the most seductive character, giving

This Island of the Irish sen, once n icii
dcvous for numerous frecbooteis and
smugglers, Is now lciuluicd a place of
no small commercial Importance, as well

Heels of the Billlsh army and navy,

mirable roads are a picture of modem
Improvements, wllllo nt all times it

From tho highest point of the Island,
In clear weather, the visitor has a view
of three milted kingdoms.
It was at the closo of a Uric day In the
latter part of August, 1772. that a two
mnslcd lugger was seen riding at a sin
gle anchor in a quiet cove on the west
side of the Islnnd. The craft might
liavc been of about 130 tons burden,
though her dark, low hull gave her the
appearance of being much smaller,
while the symmetry' of bur spars and
rigging, tapering beautifully at their
various points ns seen against the sky,
showed her to bo a craft upon whose
rig time and care had been expended.
Around her hull ovtended a lino of red.
broken nt two points on ench sldu by an
open port, while the height of the waist
showed that It wris Intended lo servu us
a breastwork to thoso who navigated
the vessel in limes of danger.
Altogether, you would have pro
nounced the lugger nt first sight a
suspicious craft, and, unless she car
ried Iho king's commission, one most
likely bent upon mischief. At the'hour
of which I write nu Individual rather
below the usual height, yet command
lug In appearance, In seaman's garb,
wllh nbioad belt about his waist, Into
which wns tluust a rouble of boarding
pistols, wns pacing the quarter deck; in
ids hand he held a spcnkjng trumpet,
which at this moment ho raised to Ids
lips nnd Issued the necessary orders for
getting under weigh.
Fifty as fine fellows as eVcr handled
a marllnsplke sprang cheerfully to ex
cute his orders, enlivened by the shrill
tones of the boatswains whistle.
AVhlle nil was bustlo and activity about
him, the captain tOnwly promenaded
the quarterdeck, presenting thu picture
of a young hero. Blended in his open
countenance wns the spirit of daring,
but yet of noble purpose, his mild,
thoughtful eyo belled his otherwise
spirited appearance. Ills foim, ns we
have said, was rather below the oldl
narv helcht. vet he was handsome In
figure, his person evincing great power
of endurance, with strength and agility;
ho might have been In age about &
"AVe aro brought to, sir," said tho
first lieutenant nt the lugger to his cap
tain. "Heave round, sir, ' was the prompt
nautical reply. "Heave aud pall."
Tho anchor being raised and stowed,
the wide breadth of canvas peculiar to
the lugger' rig, fornicily so well known
In tho Hay of Biscay and tho British
channel, wns spread upon tho life llko
vessel, and bending gracefully under
the Influence of the gentlo west wind,
she took her course utidcr n cloud of
canvas fOr the shores of the Solway,
"3Ir. Merrick,"' said the captain to
his first officer, "I think we arc likely
to have double on this night's trip, f
learn fiom trusty agents that- Intel
ligence has been lodged leltitivo to tho
character of our swift-footed craft,
nnd I fear thcio has been treachery
aboard the Dolphin." So was the lug
"I haidly think that, captain," hu
replied, "though tho ciew have hai
full freedom on shore and have lately
visited uarllsio ami iyoswick.
"They know tho nilcs of tho ship,
Mr. Jlerrlck," said tho commander,
ttcrnlv. "'und how treachery will be re
warded. Let the crew sleep with
ono ovo open; wo may have work for
Tho watch was set, while tho re
mainder of tho crew "turned in all
standing," which signifies in sea par
lnncc with their clothes on, ready for
prompt ond Immediate service. Tho
cargo on board tho craft that now
lounded tho mouth of tho sheltering
covo was contraband and valuable, and
tho object of the commander was to
laud It safely und return from the main
land to tho island before morning.
The lugger held on her coursu till
rounding tho northern point nf the
Island, whep the captain, who had not
left tho deck, discovered off his star
board bow n vessel, whoso Indistinct
outlines nlono dlsecrnablo In the dark
ness of tho night, appealed to bo thoso
of n lnrgo craft; at the same moment
the lookout forward discovered and an
noiincid the stranger ns n sloop-of-war
under easy sail.
The course of the Dolnhlu was
changed two or three points liioru
northerly, In the hopo of passing tho
Strange sail at such a dlstauco as not to
lie noticed by her crew; tho effort was
successful; tho commander of tlio sloop,
not expecting his prey at this hour, was
not on thu lookout for thu smuggler.
On board the well-iegulated lugger nil
was silent us the night Itself, while
oveiV sail expanded with tho freshen
"Mr. Merrick," said tho captain,
wheu silence was no longer necessary,
"plpo tho cicw to quarters, sir; I have
n few words to say to them that mny
servo as a rough night cap for oven
IhcM) sea dogs." '
The wakeful crow, most of whom
weio aliendy on deck, having henid of
the proximity of tho stranger, gathered
quietly aft near tho sacred pieclncts of
tho quarter deck, whero they stood with
their hats 'off and their hair waving
wildly In tho night air. A well-ills-cipllncd
ship's ci cv look upon their
captain with much tho sanio respect ns
docs n courtier upon his king, save that
If possible the former Is moro profound,
ns Is the authority of his superior moro
"My Inds," said tho young com
mander, addressing his attentlvo crow,
"most of you saw that struugo sail wo
passed within tho hour; do you know
that nothing save treachery could havo
placed that vessel In the direct track of
tho Dolphin's night couiso?"
"It does look mighty 'splclous, you,
honor," said m old seaman In tho front
ranks of tho ciew, "but Bhlver my tim
bers If I believe wo'vo got anybody
shipped aboard thlscio craft but loves
the saucy Dolphin and your honor too
well to play them a scurvy trick."
"Thero has. been treachery, I Jmvo
said; Is thero one of my crow that can
tell me Its penalty nboaid this ship?"
"Death at the yardarm," Hounded
fiom tho deep, guttural voices of tlio
crew, who shrunk beneath tho piercing
eye of their captain,
"It Is my duly," sajd ho, "to wntch
over your Interests and my own with n
jealous eye. I never deceive you, my
mop; the traitor shall receive his punish
incut, though I pursuo him to tho foot
of the throno. Enough; to your duty,"
ThO hours pa()vtl on-UiQ bus crow
had landed tho cargo, nnd In the hands
of confidential agents It was soon hidden
from tho most careful search of tho rev
Tho greatest danger was yet 16 bo en
countered. Tho cargo landed, tho lug
ger must ngtiln sail for tho sheltering
piotectlou of the Island, but tho rising
moon now Uirci? Its mellow anil un
welcome light unwelcome nt least to
those on'board the Dolphin across tho
heaNlng swells of the Irish sen,
Haidly had, tlio lugger got under
welgli,berorc tho cruiser was again ills
covered lying mid way between tho Eng
lish const mid tho Island. Tho courso
the Dolphin steered, and In fact tho
only routo she could take, would bring
her within full view of tho cruiser and
within range of her guns. The captain
Of the lugger viewed the dilemma with
calm nnd quiet countenance: giving his
orders In n tone that Inspired thoso
about him with fresh courage. The
two vessels wcro now fast approaching
each other, when n coarse hall camo
down across the water from the sloop:
"AVhat vessel Is that?"
Tito captain of tho Inciter, knowing
that every moment ho could gain In do
lay was of tho Utmost importance in tho
furtherance of his purpose to run the
gauntlet of the Cruiser's broadside, matlo
it mumbling and Inaudible reply
through his trumpet, so that tho query
from the sloop was put, "AVhat answer
tin vou make?"
The brccc still freshening drovo tho
lugger, with her Wide spread canvas,
swiftly through the water. Sho was
already nearly nbrcastof the cruiser,
which, having lacked, now stood on the
same course us her adversary,
"AVhrtt vessel Is that? was tho ques
tion again put from the commander of
till' sloop, to which he added, "Answer,
or I shall fire Into you,"
No reply belnfj made to this hall, tho
captain of tho Ioik, for so tbo cruiser
was called, ordeied n shot Hied Into the
lugger, "lo wake her up," as he ob
served; the ball, passing through the
white field of the mainsail, struck the
water far to windward. The compli
ment lyos Immediately leliirned from a
heavy gun amidships of tho lugger, the
ball of which, aimed by tho hands of
the captain himself, shot away the fore
topmast of the York, which fell with
nil Its hamper to tho deck. A fierce
brpadsldo from the cruiser followed this
discharge, making sad havoc among
(lie symmetrical rig of tho Doljihlu.
Thoarnininentof the lugger conshted
of four small pieces of ordnance nnd one
gun amidships, i evolving upon n pivot,
which wns of superior metal to that of
any gun on board the York. From this
Instrument of death the missies of de
struction were so fnlthfullr aimed that
already had the foremast of the cruiser
come lumbering upon the deck, con
founding tho crew nnd tri entry retarding
the means of defense. The York carried
sixteen guns withncomplementof about
liiu men. nlio wns now unnulc lor several
moment to return the constant nnd dO
structlvo lire of the lugger, tho wreck of
the foremast having fallen alone the
larboard battery, being tho sido 'nearest
the Dolphin. Both vessels wero so cut
up lu their rigging as to inaku but littlo
headway, and weio now rising and fall'
lug on swells of tho sea within a few
yards of each other.
Several of the heavy shots from the
luggcrhad penetrated thu York's side at
thu water llnc,nnd a largo number of the
crew of JUq latter vessel wero piped to
thu pumps, ns the craft was fast making
large quantities of water. At this mo
ment tho eye of the smtigglor captain
rested upon tlio person of one of his
owrt foremast men on board the enemy
the truth flashed in a moment ncross
his 'mind, the treachery was accounted
for, and there stood thu traitor. In nu
Instant thn grapnel lions wcro ordered
to bo thrown and tho boarders piped
to duty, a few hasty words from the
commander1 of tho Dolphin sufllced to
inform his followers tlint the traitor of
the ciew was on board tho York, nnd,
headed by their bravo and dnrltig cap
talu, tho lugger's men leaped on tho
"Secuio the traitor and back with
you all," cried tho captain, pointing
with ono hand to tho trembling vllllan
who had betrayed them, while with his
other ho kvpt n Bcoro of tltcrh nt bay
with his Hashing sword.
After securing their treacherous com-
in'de the Dolphin's crew retreated swiftly
fo' their own vessel, amid tho astonish
ment of the crew of the York, who had
been taken completely by surprise, the
deed beingiiccompllshcdln far loss time
than Is requited to relate the particulars.
Regaining' his own deck tho captaltl of
the luggernow backed his topsails, while
those that remained 'to tho York con
tinued full; tints the two vessels parted,
Tho Dolphin, ns sho fell astern of her
antagonist, 'gave her ono rnking' shot,
which did fenrf ul havoc upon her deck.
Tho captain of thecruslcr was forced to
make all speed for tho shore, when the
York was ruu aground In a sinking con-'
dltlon. Thus-ended tho fight between
the lugger and tho man-of-war, showing
what cool coinage aud skill can accom
plish against superior force.
The Dolphin sailed for tho covo on
the eastern sido of tho Island, sorely
shattered in hull and rigging by the
suvcro contest with the King's cruiser.
Tho lugger is again anchored lu tho
quiet cove, and nil hands are piped to
witness punishment. Tho traitor who
hat! betrayed tho ship had confessed his
gulll, and the prlco of his treachery was
found upon his person- Tlio crew wero
nt their stations, all sava six seamen
chosen by lot, who stood apart from
their companions with downcast oyes
and trembling forms, for they were tho
agents through whom a fellow creature
wns to be launched, lu cold blood, luto
eternity. These henrts of onk.that a few
hours since stood fearlessly at their
gnus dealing death ami destruction
around, nnd with blood flowing llko
water at their feet, now trembled!
A strungo quiet reigned throughout
tho ship, even tho wounded seamen
below had suppressed their groans, and
the tick of the captain's watch could be
heard at any part of the qunrter deck.
The mlserablo man who was now to
suffer stood upon a gun, his arms con
fined behind him nnd n ropo mound his
neck tlio coul was itivo tluough a
block nt the cxticiuo end of thu yard
arm and leaching down again to tlio
tleck, tlio opposite extremity was placed
lu the hands of the six chosen by lot,
Contemplating this arrangement for a
moment tho captain said;
"AVhy, men, next to mutiny, I know
of no blacker or moro necuised sin than
tieacht'ry; that man has betrayed us
may heaven forgive lit in, ns I do at this
moment; he was seduced from his duty

of liquor ho Is now penitent, and you

"No i no I and If the captain forgives
him that's enough," said the generous
"Blow me," said tho old seaman who
has befoio spoken In this story, "If I
don't think a man who could betray
such n commander and such a ship
must Ilnd punishment enough In over
hauling thu log of his own conscience,
without sending-him to soundings."
