Was Once a Sailor, Prii

This is Henry George's own story.
Ho dictated it to a New York World
reporter a few days before his death,
and revised it carefully.
"I was born in Philadelphia in
1839.'* said Mr. George. "My father
owned a bookstore and was a publish
er in a not very large way. After
wards he was a clerk in the Custom
House and remained there quite a
while. I myself began life in Phila
delphia as a boy, working for $2 a
week in tho office of an importer of
crockery. I did writing, carried
bundles or turned my hand to any
thing else there was to no.
"After that I went into the office of
a marine adjuster, but I was very
anxious to go to sea. My grandfather
was a sea captain of considerable note
in the early days of Philadelphia. He
followed the sea from the time he was
eight years old. He had taken part
in the war of 1812, and had been cap
tured by the British. I suppose I in
herit my love of the sea from him or
from hearing my father talk about
him. At any rate I went to sea, ship
ping as foremast boy on the old ship
Hindoo, au East Indiaman of 500 tons
burden. I sailed from right here in
New York, leaving the foot of Thir
tieth street, on North River, going
to Melbourne and then to Calcutta.
*'When I got back to Philadelphia
after this voyage I was about sixteen
years old, and I felt like staying at
home a while. So I went iuto the
printing office of King Sc Baird. There
I learned something of the trade, but
soon afterward I went to sea again,
going to Boston and back in a small
"It was on this trip that I got the
idea of going to California. I saw in
the Delaware River a little side-wheel
steamer that was being built for
tho light-house service. She was to
be taken to California, and I made up
my mind to go in her.
"As a matter of fact, I did go. Off
Hatteras we were struck by a storm,
which came near being the last of us.
I remember it very vividly-3iow the
squall drove the little cockle-shell now
here, now there, now with this side
touching the surface of the waves and
now with that, while I and a negro
deckhand worked together, throwing
over bags of coal to lighten hei. Thc
sailing master hung on to thc bridge,
shouting to us through the speaking
trumpet and barely able to make him
self heard as he told us that the work
we were doing was for life or death.
"We came through safely, but con
siderably damaged. Running along.
Ave went into St. Thomas, then to Per
nambuco and Rio Janeiro, and after
ward to Mon tendeo. We did not go
around the Horn, but through the
straits of Magellan. It was a most im
pressive sight-the deep clear water
around us aud the snow-covered moun
tains in the distance. We ran upon a
schooner which belonged to English
missionaries who were praying and
working with the natives. We saw a
number of Terra delFnegaus, and they
were not at all attractive. I heard af
terward that the Patagonians killed
and ate those very missionaries who
were trying to convert them.
"Wc were short of coal, and in go
ing through the straits we had to stop
and cut cordwood.
"I landed in San Francisco in 1857,
after the close of this trip. I had in
tended togo to Oregon, where I knew
a family, one member of which was a
niece of Governor Curry, but it was
thc time of the great Frazer River gold
excitement, and I have never been to
Oregon yet. I left the ship and joined
the rush for the Frazer River region.
"I made my way in a topsail schooner
to Victoria, which was then a Hudson
Bay station. I found about. 10,000
miners camping there. I also found
that the stories of gold were largely
false. After working in a store for a
while I made my way back to San
Francisco as a steerage passenger.
There I found Dave Bond, a Philadel
phia printer whom I had known. He
told me of work I could get to do at
the printer's trade in Frank Eastman's
establishment. It did not last very
long, and afterward I worked in a rice
mill as a weigher.
"When this failed I resolved to go
io the mines in the interior of the
Stale, aud having no other way of
reaching them I started out to walk.
I was, in fact, what would now be
called a tramp. I had a little money,
but I slept in barns to save it and bad
a rou.Lfh time generally until finally I
made up my mind to return to San
"When I got back I ran acrosa Bond
again, and again -went to printing.
They paid seventy-five cents a thou
sand, or $30 a week, but as I was still
a minor I got only $12. George Thurs
ton, who is now a captain in the regu
lar army, was my foreman.
'/As soon as I became of age I joined
the printers' union and so became en
titled to full wages. After that I did
first-rate. I worked as a substitute,
doing what printers called 'subbing'
on daily papers. Then I went to work
on a paper which Duncan was then
editing. I got to be foreman at $30 a
week .and he used my name as his pub
lishei' until he sold the paper.
"Then I subbed on the dailies un
til four printers started a little daily
paper called the Journal. Setting the
type was the main thing then, as thero
was no telegraphic news to pny for,
and so I was taken into partnership on
the payment of a small sum-between
$100 and $200, if I remember correct
"I worked trying to found the Jour
nal until my clothes were in rags and
the toes of my shoes were ont. I slept
in the office and did the best I could
to economize, but finally I ran into
debt $30 for my wash bill. What final
ly broke us up was the threat of civil
war, which created great excitement
and made the news which came from
the East by pony express an absolute
necessity. As we did not have it we
were forced ont.
"It was whilo in these straits that'I
first met thc lady who is now my wife.
Her people did not regard me with
favor under tho circumstances, and I

hardly blame them, but the young
lady liked me, and jn'omised to marry
me. I had nothing, but my friends
fixed everything for the wedding, and
boarding-house, where I was ac
quainted, agreed to credit us for two
weeks' board. As soon as we were
married my wife and I went there.
Xext morning I got up at G o'clock
aud started out to fiud work on nn
afternoon paper. I did not get it, but
I finally found work on the morn
ing papers, and wc paid our board.
"My next move was to Sacramento,
where I worked on tho Sacramento
Union and did well. I sent for my
wife, and it was there that my first
child, Henry George, Jr., was born.
I disagreed with the foreman of the
office, and after doing so returned to
San Francisco and with two other
printers started a job office. I came
near starving to death, aud at one time
I was so close to it that I think I
should have done so but for tho job of
printing a few cards which enabled us
to buy a little corn meal. In this
darkest time of my life my second
child was born. I gave up the job
office aud went back to subbing, man
aging to make a living that way until
I began writing.
"Tho first thing I ever wrote for a
newspaper was a story sent back to
Philadelphia of how we had buried a
mau who died of yellow fever on the
voyage when wo were near Monte
video. About this time Lincoln was
assassinated, and I wrote au article on
it for tho Alta Californian They
printed it as an editorial and wcro as
tonished to find that it came from one.
of the printers. I became a sort of
reporter, but left that to work as a
printer at Sacramento on State work
for $5 a day. There, by tho way, I
invested my savings in a mining ven
ture and lost them.
"On my return to San Francisco I
wrote an article for tho Times, which
resulted in my being made news ed
itor, aud I afterward became chief ed
itor-a placo I held for a year or so.
From tlio Times I went over to the
Chronicle, of which I became manag
ing editor, but I did not like Charles
De Young, and I went to the Herald.
It was a new paper, and I came East
in its interest. My wife had already
come ab cad of me to Philadelphia.
"This was in 1363, if I do not for
get. At any rate it was just before
they had completed the transcontinen
tal railroad, and I crossed tho plains
in a four-horse 'mud wagon.' I slept
many nights sitting at tho driver's
side, and I was all the more impressed
therefore when we reached tho rail
road and got a sleeping-car. We had
to sleep two in a berth, however.
"I had come Fast to make a fight
to get tue Associated Press despatches
for my paper. Thc}' were refused,
and the Western Union finally gave
Orders abrogating an agreement it had
made -with me. It afterward attempt

Kept up this fight for the San Fran
cisco Herald, both from New York and
Philadelphia, until finally the paper
got into bad finar ;ial straits and I re
turned to California.
"It was during my stay in tho East
"that I wrote for the New York Tri
bune an article headed 'The Chinese
ion the Pacific Coast'-the first article
T ever wrote on political economy.
"When I returned to San Francisco
I found the Herald dying, and, as the
grinters were the only oues on it who
?could get money to live on, I went to
.work at the case.
;: "Alter this I edited the Oakland
/Transcript, and made a friend of Pro
fessor William Swinton. Governor
Haight, who was fighting the Pacific
^Railroad, offered me charge of a Dem
ocratic paper, the Recorder, aud I
took it. It prospered, and I used the
money I made from it in starting a
penny paper in San Francisco.
I "The articles I wrote, supporting
Haight in his anti-monopoly fight, at

T also developed the idea which was
afterward worked out in 'Progress
"I published it first in a pamphlet
called 'Our Land aud Land Policy,' of
which a thousand copies were sold at
twenty-five cents each. More might
have been sold, but when the edition
ran out I determined to wait until I
fcould develop the idea in a way I
thought more worthy of it.
j "Our penny paper was printed on
a flat press of the old style, and we
found we could not get off enough
popies to supply the demand or to
inake it pay. A man was very anxious
|o buy and we sold to him. One of
my partners went to Paris with the
proceeds of his venture, but I re
mained in San Francisco and was
finally induced by the purchaser of
the paper to take au interest in it for
nothing, as bo had lost hope of suc
ceeding with it. We got the first
Bullock perfecting press ever used in
California, but just as we were start

"We were pressed for the money
which had been borrowed to buy tho
press, and the sacrifices we were com
pelled to make determined me to re
tire. I held a small political office in
San Fraucisco, by appointment for
four years, and during this time wrote
'Progress and Povorty.'
"I could not find a publisher in the
East or in England. The publishers
laughed at thc idea of there being a
sale for a work on political economy

partner, W. M. Hinton, who had a

have no idea how many copies have

half a million. There were threo edi

When asked about tho trip to Eng
land and Ireland which he made about
the height of tho Laud League agita
tion, Mr. George recalled tho fact that
he was twice arrested as an enemy of
tho English Government. Ho Avas in
Connemara when the first arrest took
place. This was at Lochrea, aud. tho
second was at a miserai)!o straggling
village fifty miles further on. It was
this second arrest which most im
pressed Mr. George.
"Tho charge against JUC," he said,
"was being a stranger and a danger

certaiu other persons to prevent the
payment of rent. The police surround
ed me and forced mc into what income
parts of this country would be called
tho hoodlum wagon. I was carried to
the police station nuder a formidable
guard, and after being cross-examined
was locked np.
"From the window of my cell I
could study the misery and squalor of
the village, illustrated specially by the
fact that il had thirty-two policemen,
but only one pump to supply tho en
tire population with water for all pur
poses. The police searched my trunk
and found a copy of my book on the
Irish land question, which they con
sidered dangerous matter, I suppose.
' \ '. t any rate I was taken to the man
sion oi the squire for examination. I
shall never forget the contrast it pre
sented with the misery of the' village.
Well-dressed people were playing lawn
tennis on its beautiful grounds. It
had stately trees around it and an air
of the utmost respectability and com
fort. The squire sent me back to the
subordinate magistrate and I was re
committed to the lock-up. In the
mean time a telegram had been sent to
London, and Mr. Gladstone I think it
was, had ordered my immediate re
iease. So I was turned out.
"I wrote a letter to the President,
detailing the circumstances of the ar
rest, and on my return Secretary of
State Frelinghuysen sent for me. He
told me that the English Government
was willing to pay me damages, but I
did not want them. All I wanted was
to make it as plain as possible just
how things were usually done in en
forcing English authority in Ireland."

Old Fashioned Gingerbread.
To any one in whose breast there
still linger haunting memories of the
topography of the genuine old fash
ioned New England '"'card ginger
bread," that flourished during the
early part of this century, there will
come a feeling of thankfulness for this
family recipe, handed down for uev
eral generations from mother to
daughter: Two cupfuls of Porto Eico
molasses, ono cupful sugar, ono cup
ful drippings (or half butter and half
lard), one cupful coldwater, a dessert
spoonful ginger, one tablespoonful
soda, and flour to make a rather soft
dough. It may be baked as of old,
in sheets about two inches thick,
barred crowsswise with the sharp edge
of a tin, or rolled into cookies. In
either case, it will be found an ad
mirable concomitant to the morning
cup of coffee; or an assuager of that
"aching void" with which the small
boy commonly returns from school.

then rinsing the articles most carefully

the pulp of a lemon, whose juice has
been used for lemon squash, may be
recommended, as both efficient and
harmless. Indian silver and brass are
always cleaned by natives with lemon
or limes. It may be as well to warn
housekeepers in these days, when pretty
serving is such a consideration, that,
where one has to reheat food in a sil

shift the eatable, a baking tin should

to twenty bushels of wheat this fall.
"This is a movement," says The Atlanta
Constitution, "which, if persisted in,
will emancipate our pockets from the
necessity of paying tribute to the West
and our stomachs from the thousand
and one brands of patent flour, in,
.which the essence of the wheat has
either been wholly destroyed or sub
stituted for kaolin or some other mix
lure of eaual weicht and fineness."
