Dreadful ns Is the loss of more than
230 lives on the Maine, this fatality Is
not the worst In the naval annals of
the United States. By far the greatest
loss of life from one Anierlcau vessel,
and probably unsurpntsed In tho his
tory of tho world, wns when, at the
close of the civil war, the Mississippi
steamer Sultana blew up her boilers
near Memphis and hurled 1,500 Union
soldiers to death.
The Sultana was n fine, large vessel,
2S." feet long, which piled between St.
TxHils nnd New Orleans. She left New
Orleans one tine April morning In 1805
on her return to St. Louis with n heavy
cargo. She touched nt Ylcksburg, on
her trip up the river, nnd took on board
covery of the noble rivers, the Orinoco

This was an enormous load for the

one fact that Is generally overlooked
nnd that ts.tbat tho consumption of the

predominate for drink In the cold coun

The El Dorado Myth.
El Dorado is the term now beard on
every side In connection with the placer
mines of Alaska and tho Northwest
Territory of Canada. Its derivation is
of Interest. In tho fifteenth century it
was rumored that thero existed In tho
northern part of South America a city
of great wealth called Manoa, whoso
king, El Dorado by name, was period
ically smeared with gold dust, until his
whole body had a glided appearance.
It was said that on these occasions ho
throw gold, emeralds and other pro
clous metals nnd gems Into a sacred
lake, In which ho afterward bathed.
Beginning In 1KJ2 tho Spaniards t,ent
many largo expeditions to search for
this phantom cltyiuiil most of them
ended disastrously, hundreds of lives
being lost. Ono explorer, Orollano,
averred that he found Kl Dorado In his
voyage down tho Amazon in 1540. Tills
was disproved, but tho hearch waH con
tinued down to the eighteenth century.
Homo of the results wcro the conquest
and settlement of Now Granatin, tho
making known to tho world of the
mountain region of Veaezucla, the dls-
den nnd Norway, beer in England and
Germany, whllo in France, Spain and
Italy wlno Is drunk nlmost to tho exclu
sion of other Intoxicants. From this It
would follow that beer) should bo chief
ly used In tho northern section of the
United States and wlno In tho southern.
What tb'e effect of high taxation Is
upon a nation's drink bill Is a subject
not well settled, whllo It Is well estab
lished that tho amount of spirits con
sumed varies with tho prosperity or
purchasing capacity of tho people; that
largo vintages and correspondingly
largo production of wine Increase the
amount of the per capita consumption
and that In most cases Increase In tax
ation and corresponding Increase In the
cost of intoxicants somewhat reduce
the amount consumed. There Is con
siderable variation In tho revenuo de
rived by different nations from the tax
ation of alcoholic beverages. In Great
Britain it is 80 per cent; lu Frnnce 10
per cent; in the United States 30 per
cent, and in Qe'rniauy 17W per cent,
