ON THE CIVIL WAR
Wonderful Book of Records Made of
Clippings.
VOLUMES 121; PAGES 100,000
The Work, ot Fort}- Yean Sold bj
the Collcotor to do to Colum
bia I nlvemlty library. *
New York Evening World.
"There ar« deeds tiiat must not pass
away and names that must not wither."
After forty years of incessant toll
Thomas S. Townsend can point to a series
of shelves In Columbian university library
and .say:
"It is finished. I have done .the work
to which my life has been dedicated."
In 121 volumes, containing nearly 100,
--000 pages, Mr. Towusend has preserved
the newspapers and magazine record—the
detailed living history as written daily—
of the great civil war. The magnitude of
his work is appalling, and Its value to the
people of America is priceless.
Mr. Townsend used aa his motto on the
flyleaf of the first volume the lines quoted
at the head of this column. In so unsel
fishly laboring to preserve the names and
deeds of others he has, in the minds of
his friends, assured for himself a place
In the hearts of future generations that
will keep his uama unwithered and his
labor vivid.
Mr. Townsend is a son of John R. Town
send,, a prominent member of the Is'ew
York bar early in the last century, one of
the early presidents of the New York
Life Insurance company and a friend of
Francis B. Cutting and Charles O'Conor.
The son, through a defect in hearing,
was unsuited to the activities of a pro
fessional or commercial career, and it was
not until he began the compilation of the
great work of which the 121 st and last
volume was finished yesterday, that he
'ound an occupation suited to his talents.
i*o a reporter Mr. Townsend gave a his
tory of Ids life work.
"The Townsend library, or, to give it
the name I use, the national, state and in
dividual records of the civil war, had its
inception in November, 1860, six months
before Sumter was fired upon," he said:
"The war clouds were already gathering.
War was Inevitable, and as an inspiration
1 conseived the idea of collecting all the
newspaper articles leading up to and in
cluding the war. Of course, I had no idea
such a tremendous struggle would take
place. I supposed the war "would last six
months.
"Once started on my work there was no
turning back, though I had many discour
agements. The thinly veiled sarcasms of
acquaintances end the limitations of a
very moderate Income proved a decided
detriment. But I went ahead.
"My original plan was quickly out
grown, and .before the war was half over
I realized the tremendous work I had un
dertaken. 1 think at this time the most
encouragement I received came from the
heroic Winthrop, who, when dying at the
battle of Big Bethel, said, 'would that
Borne competent -person would keep a
careful record of events, for we are mak
ing history fast.'
"This spurred me on. For what could
be a 'more careful record of events than
the daily history of the bloody war as
written in the periodicals? As the work
has grown, in scope it has become more
and more a labor of love, and, now that
it is finished, 1 feel something is gone
from my life. It has been my life and
work for forty years; there is nothing
more I can do on it, and I hardly know
where to turn."
The marvelous work comprises ninety-
Bine volumes of what Mr. Townsend calls
the "Record." These books, each about
two and a half feet square and a foot
thick, contain every newspaper and mag
azine item that has appeared in New York,
Boston and Philadelphia concerning the
civil war, and Important items not cov
ered by the others that have appeared
throughout the country. In these ninety
nine books .there are 55,000 pages; which
with four colums of printed matter to the
page, gives, a grand total of 220,000 col-
BBM,
But the collection of this enormous
amount of information concerning the his
tory of our country Mr. Townsend regards
as the smallest part of his labors. Before
this cruua mass was of the least value It
was necessary to carefully Index and epi
tomize it.
Nothing daunted) by the heroic task, he
began the preparation of the second, part
of the work, "The Encyclopedia," com
prising thirty volumes of 1,400 pages each,
or 42,000 pages In all. These volumes are
all hand-written. The toil involved in
this last was stupendous. Every line of
the Record had to be gone through, the
facts condensed and the references tab
ulated.
To facilitate his work, Mr. Townsend
devised a plan something like the "jour
nalizing" of accounts in bookkeeping.
The result of his toil has been success.
Every reference to an event, a person, a
regiment during the war can be found in
an Instant
Mr. Townsend tells an Interesting story
to illustrate how completely the events of
the (struggle are recorded in his library.
"One night, before the books had been
taken to Columbia," he said, "I was at
work upon them when a man called on me*
He was a pompous individual, whom I dis
like exceedingly. He made some inquiries
as to what I was at work on. When I told
him he asked me to see what I had to cay
about him, naming a New Jersey regi
ment to which he had been captain. I
glanced through the index and at last
read him a clipping describing his dis
missal from the army under grave
charges. He was convinced my work was
thorough and asked no more questions."
With the volume finished yesterday Mr.
Townsend ends his labors with the ac
counts of Mr. McKinley's death. He says
he has had great difficulty in filling the
600 pages of this last book, as little is
now printed about the war.
"In finishing my work," said Mr. Town
sent, "I cannot express how greatly I have
•been assisted by F. August Schermerhorn.
With the greatest generosity he helped
me financially at a time when funds to
carry on my work were lacking, and he
it was who finally bought the library and
presented it to Columbia university."
In connection with the library Mr.
Townsend mad© for his own use two
highly interesting volumes, which he calls
"Beginning and End of a Great Strug
gle" and "A Compilation of Americana." i
"OODLES* OF TARANTULAS
A great many people who have read all
sorts of harrowing tales about the poison
ous bite of the tarantula, who have been
treated to detailed accounts of how the in
sect would spring forty feet on his un
suspecting victim, would be surprised to
find that as many tarantulas come to New
Orleans as to any other place on the map.
With every shipload of bananas there
are oodles of tarantulas. They nestle down
around the stalk and they make the trip
from South and Central America, in peace
and comfort. Yet among the hundreds of
men who are employed in discharging the
cargoes of these steamers, there has not
been a single instance of one having been
bitten by a tarantula. The truth. of the
matter is, according to those who assert
they have some knowledge of bugology,
the tarantula is a very much abused in
sect. He will bite when he thinks his
life is in danger. Just as any animal. But
this talk about his springing propensities
is all rubbish, if those experts are to
be beleved. Nor is the bite of the insect
bo terribly fatal. He will bite, and the
bite will cause a swelling of the particu
lar part of the body affected, and may
cause nausea,' but very seldom has death
been known to result from one of the
bites. In fact, the tarantula, by the South
and Central Americas, is not considered
nearly so dangerous as the centipede. The
centipede is much smaller, and will crawl
upon the victim In sleep and bite. The
bite is very poisonous, and unless prompt
ly attended to, either death or lasting In-
Jury is likely to result. If the people
who live in the countries where these in
sects live and thrive are to be given cred
ence, most of the stories printed about
their destroying powers art* purely imag
inative.
POLES ARE DNEASY
Fears of Conflict With the German
Element.
A PROTEST FROM SIENKIEWICZ
On Frmiiau Chlld-FloKgliiß—"The
Government Demoralizes
the Nation."
Cracow, Dec. 17.—The famous author
Sienkiewcz has written an indignant let
ter to the papers here on the flogging of
Polish children. He says that since the
days of Frederick the Great the Prussian
policy has consistently been one of crime,
of cringing to the «trong and tyranizing
over the weak.
M. Sienklewicz has headed a subscrip
tion for the relief of the children left
destitute by reason of the imprisonment
of their parents, and gives several in
stances of cruelty to children which had
come within his personal knowledge.
A man named Piasecka, who was sen
tenced to two and a half years' imprison
ment, has five little children dependent on
him. Their grandmother, over 80 years
old, although very ill, was sent to prison
in chains; the doctor advised her removal
to the hospital, but this was refused, and
she is now severely ill in her cell.
The only charge against her is that of
using strong language to a schoolmaster
who had flogged her grandchildren for re
fusing to answer the catechism in Ger
man, which they did not understand.
Many Polish students, said M. Sien
kiewicz, are also imprisoned for belonging
to a society for promoting temperance
and for reading Polish historical books.
The Czechs, observed the novelist, are
the people who pose as humanitarians, ac
cusing England of cruelty to Boer chil
dren.
M. Slenkiewicz quoted Herr Holzen
dorf, the noted German historian, on the
immorality of Prussian rule. The govern
ment absolutely demoralizes the nation.
If Christ came to Posen he would be
sentenced to imprisonment for sedition. In
Posen, Sehleswig-Holstein and Alsace-
Lorraine force is the only policy pursued.
The Prussian people seem to have lost
all sense of right and wrong. The Eng
lishman throughout India is respected if
not loved. The Prussian in the above
provinces Is only despised.
FOR THE SAKEJJF DISCIPLINE
The Old Railroader* Story of a Sur
prising Poker Game,
Detroit Free Press.
"In my young days," said the railroad
man with a touch of pathos in his voice,
"I got a job as station agent at the most
lonesome junction I ever ran across in the
west. I had to board myself, and out
side of the train hands and a stray cow
boy there was no one to talk to. I was
getting mighty tired of the job when a
stranger stopped off one night to take
the narrow gauge. He had three hours to
wait, and as there was nothing doing with
me I made bold to ask if he didn't want a
little game of poker.
" 'I might take a hand for small stakes,'
he replied after looking me over pretty
carefully, and I got out an old pack of
cards and at it we went. 1 never was a
decent hand at the game, and at that
time hardly knew the value of the cards.
I further had only about 80 cents in cash,
and so you may believe me that I did not
sit down in a spirit of avarice. We played
a 6-cent ante and a 10-cent limit game
for a while, and I had the best of luck.
I was about $2 ahead when the stranger
asked me to raise the ante to 50 cents and
the limit to $1. I didn't have to do any
bluffing. The poorest hands I got held
two pairs, while he was in luck to get a
pair of Jacks. Before three hours were
up I was $30 ahead of him, and when the
train whistled and I called hia attention
to it !he replied:
" 'Never mind the train. I'm going to
sit here till my luck changes.'
"After I had seen the train off and re
ported her we \<fcnt at it again. This time
it was a dollar ante and no limit to the
game. The stranger had a big wad with
him and coujd have raised me out, but he
played fair. It was more than I would
have done with luck dead against me.
When it came 6 o'clock in the morning
and the express was due I was $180 ahead
of the game. He didn't do any kicking,
but went off good natured, though I was
soon to hear from him again. That after
noon I got the bounce through the division
superintendent, and when I asked the rea
son he replied:
' 'For playing poker.'
" 'But I neglected none of my duties,'
I replied.
" 'But you played against our new sup
erintendent.'
" 'The devil I did! Of course I didn't
know him. Well, he might have won my
money.'
" 'But you won his, you see, and we've
got ito keep up the discipline. Pack up
and git!'
"I got," sighed the Btory teller, "and I
thought it was a mean trick for a year or
so. Then I was offered a better Job on
the 'same line, and I got a call to the
superintendent's office. He gave me some
general talk, and we had finished our
business when he suddenly said:
" 'Oh, by the way, I believe you play
poker?'
" 'I haven't since that night,' I replied.
" 'Y-e-s, Just so. I believe you were
discharged next day?'
" 'Yes, sir.'
" 'Y-e-s, Just so. Very interesting
game, and you didn't neglect your duties,
but as I saw some one looking through
the window Just as we were counted up
I had to look out for discipline, you know?
Y-e-». Better pin a newspaper over the
I window if you play any more. '
