Manila. June 23. The inhabitants
of these islands, except a few aborigines,
are all of the Malay race, subject to vis
ible admixtures with the Spaniard in
the northern portion and in the southern
a race of Mohammedans, who came to
Mindanao before Magellan and "con
verted" the natives to their particular
variety of religion. They used as effect-
ive weapons as even the Spaniards,
these sons of the prophet, for they drove
their theology down the throats of the
heathen with sword and cannon. Mr
W. C." Kaelin, an American mer
chant in Manila, has in his possession
today an old time brass cannon so old
indeed that the Spanish found it on
Mindanao when they came there first.
It is apparently of old Moorish work
manship and must date almost as far
back as when cannon were first made
almost as long ago, in fact, as when
people began to make the mother-in-law
and stovepipe jokes. This cannon
is of uncommonly fine workmanship.
The Malay peoples speak as many af
30 different dialects, but they are to be
divided into three leading groups Ta
galos, Vi6ayas and Sulus. The Tagalos
are the particular variety with whom we
are having the little discussion at pres
ent, an undersized race, inferior in every
thing except capacity for small sized
deviltry The Visayas belong to the
middle gronp of the Philippines, and
are larger than the Tagalos. Those who
know them say they possess the capac
ity for steady work, which, if true,
puts them far ahead of the Tagalos.
Next there are the Sulus that is,
Mohammedans who inhabit the south
ern part of the islands the Sulu archi
pelago. They retain the religion that
was fired into them by the brass cannon
400 years ago. and are followers of tht
prophet who tcorn the white man's
theology. Not even Spanish priests have
ever been able to bend their necks, and
they are not fond of the company oi
white men In government they run a
side show of their own. and have a sul
tan who was not much more than nom
inally tributary to Spain. It will be
the pleasant task of Uncle Sam to send
a couple of his regiments down there
with a few rapid firo gnus, just to let
them know things aro not as they used
to be. The soldier boys would like no
better fun than to go and open up the
fabulously rich Sulu archipelago.
Finally, the queerest little people
outside of monkey folk are certainly to
be found here. They are aborigines of
the islands, those who inhabited them
before the Malay race, which in turn
gives place to the white man, who con
quered the small creatures. They are
the Negritos, often called Aetas., A full

women may have Benee enough to re
fuse the low necked gowns, but already
they manage to achieve the appearance
of them. More gowns than I can count
recently have had the effect of being
cut very low off the shoulders. The
vacant space is covered with lace in
form of a fitted guimpe, with long,
tight sleeves. Sometimes there are
straps of the dress material over the
shoulders in form of sleeves, but more
often there is no apology for a sleeve
whatever. Then again there will be a
tight 6leeve of the dress material reach
ing to the elbow. But the principle
seems to be to simulate the old style
short, low waist with the narrow skirt
and scarf or mantelette.
Dressmakers are skirmishing around
trying this and that variation or com
bination, but always coming nearer the
style of those made historic by the Em

Theo two costumes, for the whole
outfit was to be made to go together,

New York high society, but curiously
enough they do not like to have their
name3 in print. One of these dresses
had the underskirt made of violet silk
mnalin, closely shirred for several inches
around and just below the knees. The
skirt ended in a flounce as full as it
conld possibly bo gathered and so long
that it laid out on the floor all around.
It was lined with silk. There was an
overskirt made of black dotted lace,
with a border of rich tan colored ap
plique laco along the edge. It was
draped somewhat in shawl shape The
waist was of all over lace, lined with
the silk and draped around like a very
short empire bodice, with the black
lace. The sleeves were long, reaching
down over the wrist like the old time

TRAINING JACK TAIIS.
THE NEW HOME FOR NAVAL APPREN
TICES AT NEWPORT.
Navy Department! Plan Ifor Man

ntid Kfflclent S'men m'1mm1 Where
Iln Learn to Ue Sailor.
Washington, Aug. 14. What the
navy does or will do and what is. done
or will be done for the navy continue
to be prime topics of public interest and
comment at the national capital. Since
that May day in Manila bay and the 3d
of July off Santiago Washington, in
common with all the country, is of the
opinion that "there's nothing too good
for the navy." And there iu't. Xor is
this feeling confined to the great naval
captains. The humble but rollicking
and jolly Jack Tar comes in for a gener
ous hliare of admiration, and there is a
genuine interest in his well being.
Provision is very wisely being made
for the future in the matter of manning
the warships with well drilled and effi
cient seamen. A notable step in this
direction is the construction of the
new home at Coaster's inland, in New
port harbor, for naval apprentices, the
contract for which has just been let by
the navy department. The building,
which must be completed within the
next five months, represents the latest
style of special structure and is de
signed to accommodate 1,000 boys,
gathered for preliminary instruction
before going on their first deep sea
cruise aboard training ships whence
they will be graduated as full fledged
Jack Tars, ready for duty on American
With the great growth in the navy
during the lust year or two the problem
of securing ordinary seamen of the right
sort has been a pressing one. and the
naval authorities have redoubled their
efforts to put into training large num
bers of boys for sea careers, securing
them at an age when they most easily
learn and are most readily induced to
adopt a naval life. This plan is pre
ferred by the department, except where
there is urgent and immediate need for
men. to enlisting full grown men from
the merchant marine service, where the
pay is as good, sometimes better, or to
gathering ablebodied recruits from
among landsmen. Many of the latter,
however, who were termed "inland
sailors. " made very good seamen during
the war with Spain.
The training service, though doubled
afloat during the present year, is inade-

quate because of the number of ships
available to educate all the boys re
quired in the next two or three years.
The expedient, therefore, has beenadopt
ed of establishing institutions ashore
for much of the theoretical training
and for inculcating the first essentials
of discipline, the purpose being to re
lieve the crowded cruising schoolships.
Ono of these rendezvouses has been built
on Verba Bnena island, in San Fran
cisco harbor, and work is now to be
commenced on the other one, at New
The building on Coaster's island is to
be placed on a hillside, sloping down to
the landing place, the hill in the rear
overtopping the roof and not only shel
tering the structure from the bleak New
England winter winds, but affording a
foundation for water supply capable of
filling all the fire mains. The main
front will be 373 feet long and about 30
feet high, and the width of the build
ing will be 150 feet
A fine drill hall, open to the roof,
where it will be lighted, will occupy
the center of the structure on the
ground floor, its galleries giving access
to the two upper stories, of which one
is to be devoted to offices, schoolrooms,
library and reading rooms, while the
third floor will provide ample accom
modation to swing 1,000 hammocks in
eight dormitories. The drill hall will
be 300 by 60 feet, and adjoining will be
a shooting gallery 1 CO feet in length.
In navy circles, as well as elsewhere,
that which most attracts public atten
tion just now is the home coming of
Admiral Dewey. It is expected that the
admiral will repair to Washington as
soon as the great demonstration in New
York is over, and the reception here,
though less spectacular than that in
New York, will be quite as significant
and gratifying to its recipient
The admiral will be entertained by
the president, and; though the arrange
ments so far are but tentative, it is
likely to be the swellest function that
has ever occurred at tho White House.
Other receptions, public and private,
There is scarcely any doubt that Ad
miral Dewey will make Washington his
permanent home, as this city would bo
more congenial to him than any other.
There is here quite a bunch of old sea
dogs, who are mainly cronies of tho ad
miral and with whom he would donbt
less find pleasanter companionship than
he would find elsewhere. Among the
compatriots of Dewey who make their
homes in Washington are Bear Ad
mirals Howell. Schley, Higginsou, Rodg
ers and Day on the active list, and a
score or so on the retired list.

a recently returned tourist, "but the

M-em impressed with the idea that
there is some weak t-pot about the

no American can be admitted to the
fortified places, though they are al
lowed to wander all around the outside
as long as they care to.
"I do not tiling the combined guns of

Gibraltar beyond cutting off the mail

such a thing an doing any damage in
a military sense would be simply non
sense. Gibraltar could resist any at

that the attacking party would neces
sarily have to be exposed in making
Its attack. This exposure would have
to be within range of the guns of the
fort, even If they are 50 years out of
date. Consequently they would be
nearly as effective as modern guns,
for with all that is claimed for modern
warfare there probably never will be
any fighting done when the opposing
parties are out of sight of each other.
"While all this is admitted by mili

funny that there should be auything

Gibraltar that Americans should not
be allowed to inspect as freely as the
people of other countries are. Eng

SCENERY FOR A NEW PLAY.
! Preparation In Modern Theater
an Interestinc Process.
The preparation to? a new play, a
far as the scenery Is concerned, is most
interesting. A complete model in min
iature Is made, about the size of one
of the German toy theaters seen In the
shops. The picture is carefully painted;
the rocks, if there be any, and the
foliage are cut out, aud all the details
are followed with.no less thought than
when the real affair is attacked.
The work Is done in water color,
mounted on pasteboard, and If the
scheme be an interior there are real
curtains in miniature, flights of steps,
and the hangings, all seriously worked
out. It is something that would de
light the heart of a boy and furnish
him with endless amusement. These
models are kept until after the piece
is produced, and are then put nway
on shelves, alas! only to warp and be
come covered with dust.
But the master painter's work does
not end here by any means, for there
are lights jo be arranged, since they
play an important part in the per
formance and must be regulated by
the scheme of color; so there nre long
conferences with electricians and many
discussions with the makers of glass
shades whereby the exact tiuts may be
When every detail lias been settled,
then the great acres of cauvas are
spread on the paint frames, and the
drawing is begun. Large china pots
nre used for the colors. These are filled
with paints, which are mixed with
water and a size, and enormous
brushes put the pigment on the can
vas. It is wonderful to watch the
artist, who dashes on the paint with
no apparent tare and who has to work
fast to coer the surface before tho
color dries, which it does quickly.

Oh, bjgone days, when seventeen and single,

Oh, present time, wherein that selfsame fellow
To that same angel grown a trifle yellow
Calls out, "Matilda, do you understand?

The Sexton of the Sea
You scatter flowers on the grassy mound
That marks the spot where your loved ones be;
ou bring them emblems with never a thought
For the dead beneath the sea.

Haie build cd with chart and wheel
The bones of men in a hundredfold
Are laid bensath its keel.
A canvas shroud and an iron bar
At the weary head and the wasted feet.
And, lo, from the deck they nune away
From the hearts that throb and beat!
Soldiers anil realtors and captains grand.
Babes with a mother's breat
Wet with the lips that will touch no mort
Come down in my arms to ret.
And I lay them gently alone to sleep
Where the !cd of the sand is clear,

For 1 keep them, oh, bo dear!
And, hark! When the bell buoy tolU at night
Above the wae where the fishes swim,
You mar know that 1 keep my Tattler's watch.
For the day I shall ghe them back to him!

The World's VInIoii.
Perhaps vou did a dozen things
Worth praising, yesterday,
But jou alone remember them.
So wags the world away.
Tomorrow you may err somehow.
And will the world forget?
Ab, ihirty-seen years from now
Men will remember yetl
Oh, many a good thing that you do
Your brothers miss todayl
They always see your errors, though
So wags the world away.
I Will Be SUent.
I will be silent, that the wise
May wisdom teach me, day by day.
'Tis only clattering fools despise
The tongue that doth no thoughts betray,
I will be silent. Nature speaks
Alone when human lips are mute.
The voices of the mountain peaks
Await the stillness absolute.
T will be silent, and the flower
Perchance its magic will disclose;
'Twere more than worth a quiet hour
To win the secret of a rose!
The hush of day, the calm of night
Will onveil mysteries to my soul.
Till heaven may open to my sight
Through nature's ever changing scroll.

For cicry vulture foul that flaps its wing
A hundred tuneful larks mount up and sing.

There's more of laughter than of tears on earth.
And fewer dirges far than odes of mirth.

To know what has becflfrnd to see

To tell the treasury of stars.

To spy the bounds of spirit land.
