Many Wsitors to the coast are soiolj
fU77.lcl lien a boatman either refuses
to put off from the bhore, or at most
70 far from land, on a day when there
Is no sign of an approaching storm
and the -n ater is only moved by a long
and gentle rolling swell.
Argument is of no avail, and if the
old salt Is pushed for a reason he will
only tcpiy wjth some cryptogramic re
mark about "the grouud sea," the
questioner then retiring moie bewil
dered than before.
It Is h.trtl to understand how such a
gentle sviell c.iu presage danger, but
to experienced ejes it gives a warning
that must be heeded. All along the
west and parts of the south coasts of
England aud Ireland, as well as the
west coast of Scotland, uncounted
tales are told of ships which on a per
fectly calm day have been within a
few hours hrst caught by a gentle roll
of the water and finally thrown on a
rockbouud phore by the dtended
To undei stand this curious marine
phenomenon it must be home in mind
that out on the Atlantic waves ate of
ten formed to a heigh of 40 feet. Driv
en before a heay gale, these advance
at a rate of from SO to 40 miles an
hour. Tra'llng at such a rate, they
soon get out of the wind swept
nrea. Rut een though, for them, the
storm is past they still roll on -in fury,
their undulations often being felt 500
miles, from tho point of their creation.
In the region of the storm these
wa es are fierce, breaking billows, but
as tliey get farther away they settle
down into long, rolling ridges, which
Uavel onward in long, unbroken lines,
perfectly parallel with each other.
Ouu on the open sea these ridges of
ten stretch out for a distance of over
30 miles, and they travel in threes,
each successive wave being larger
than Its predecessor. The sight is an
The farther they progress the small
er they become in height, but this is
compensated for by the fact that their
motion is communicated to the mass of
water below, until the roll can be de
tected fully 50 feet under the surface.
This gives them the name of "ground
In this peculiarity their danger lies,
for when a becalmed ship is caught in
them, her draft, the resisting power
that enables her to ride out a storm,
becomes the fulcrum which the liquid
mass uses to liuil her onwatd to de
struction. On a calm day any sailing craft
caught In the "ground sea" near a
rocky shote is as good as lost, unless a
wind can spiuig up and enable her to
beat out to sea. Many n ship has met
this fate. The reason many more do
not get lost is due to the gentle swell
that so decenes a landsman and warns
As the "ground sea" adances It
pushes a- certain amount of water be
fore it. This also forms into ridges,
like its pursuer, but of less height nnd
appioximately no depth.
The "false sea," as it is called, is lit
tle more than a rolling swell, but it
gives a warning of from 20 minutes to
two hours' duration, enabling a ship
to either run into port, get out to sea
or securely anchor; while at the sea
side resorts the boatmen run close in
shore to the surprise of the "trippers."
When It is remembered that a wave
20 feet high, which is often attained by
the "giouud sea," strikes with a force
of one ton to the square Inch, the ne
cessity for caution will be recognized.
All wave that come iu parallel
ridges, however, are not dangerous, as
there is a "w ind billow" that is closely
allied to the "ground sea" iu appear
ance. "Wind billows" are due to a heavy
wind blowing but a few miles off the
land, but as they have had but a com
paratively short distance to travel they
hae no depth. Consequently ecn a
rowing boat is perfectly safe on them
if properly handled.
These waves usually appear when
there is a comparative calm near the
shore, their great point of difference
from the "ground sea," in appearance
being that their unbroken lines are
neater and aie all equidistant, not
traveling In threes.
Generally the "wind billow" does not
break Into foam, hut occasionally this
happens v. lion they are coming in

Vashi.citox, Oct. 30. The pro-pea;
which is being made here through the
department of agricnltnre as well as by
Director General Peck at his temporary
headquarters in Chicago in getting onr
exhibits in shape for the Paris exposi
tion is gratifying to all who hope to see
this country adequately represented at
the great fair next year. Secretary Wil
son i-- deeply interested in ha ing onr
display of farm, daiiy and grazing
products as complete as possible, nnd to
this end he and his assistants in the
agricultural department have been pnt-
ting forth strenuous efforts. If we d6

not have an exhibit at Paris which will
amph demonstrate our ability to feed
the world, it will be no fault of the de
partment of agriculture.
In connection with tho Paris exposi
ti( n it is noted that generous provision
is being made for American newspaper
men and corre-pondents who may visit
the fair. An edifice i being constructed
to be known as the United States Pnb
lisheis' building. It will be an annex
of the depaitment of liberal arts and
chemical industries. The Publishers'
bnildii g will be iu charge of A.-S.
Capehart, who will have as his assistant
Chailes H. Simms, upon whom will de
volve the bulk of the work. Mr. Simms
is a thoroughly practical newspaper
man, having been long connected with
The Daily News of Dayton, O. He will
take pains to see that American news
paper coiraspondents at the exposition
receive all the couitesies which ought
to be extended to them. He will inspect
their credentials and introdnce them to
the authorities who represent the French
goveinmeut at the exposition.
Mr. Simms is a pleasing and affable
gentleman who is believed lo be admi
rably qualified for the duties to which
ho has been assigned Newspaper men
who attended tho exposition of 1893 in
Chicago will lecall the courtesies and
consideration which were then extend
ed to tho presi of the country and to
foreign representatives as well, and it
seems to be the policy, at least in eo
f.u as Amei ican influence prevails, tc
have the wmo liberal courtesies extend
ed at the Palis exposition Hundreds of
American newspaper conespondents
will attend the exposition next year,
and their repoits, particnlarly relating
to American exhibits, will be of very
general public interest
Colonel Denby and Professor Worces
ter, who, with President Schurman,
weie sent to Manila to act with Ad
miial Dewey and General Otis as Phil
ippine coinniis-ioners, have returned,
and all the information desired or ob
tainable will now be placed before the
administration tonchingnpon that most
momentous question. President Schur
man returned some time ago and re-j-orted
to the president. The chief ex
ecutive and his cabinet advisers have
h1"o been given the views of Admiral
Dowey. All the commissioners, except
General Otis, who, as Professor Worces
ter lcmaiks, is "still busy in Ma
nila," are nowhere, and doubtless sum"
time will be consumed in their deliber
atior.3 before their fornisil findings are
More or less of speculation has been
imlulged in as to Admiral Dewey a fu
ture. For tho present he will be busy
witli his duties as member of the Phil
ippine commission, in which his views
and opinions aie likely to have prepon
deiating weight. The report of the
commission will donbtless be presented
to the president in time for him to em
body at least some portion of it in his
message to the Fifty-sixth congress.
Bnt the work of the commission will
not end with this report. Jt is antici
pated that congress will fiom time tc
time dunng the coming session call
upon it for a great deal of information.
Beside1! tho president will doubtless call
upon the commission for advice and in
deed jnay request its membeis to return
to Manila shonld the conditions theie
be such as to require it.
Thus the admiial is likely to havt
very little leisure for several months at
least. So long- as the Philippine ques
tion is unsettled his counsel and advice
will unquestionably be sought by the
administration. When that is out ol
the way, the activity to which the ad
miral will devote himself can only be
surmised. Some oflicers who profess tc
know intimate that he will apply foi
retirement when the work of the Phil
ippine commission is completed. He
will reach the retiring age of G'J on the
Stitli of December of the present year.

The house given to Admiral Dewey
is by no means tho first presented in
this city to oflicers of the army and
navy. The first house presented to a
national heio was given to General
Grant by his enthusiastic and admiring
friends upon his coming to Washington
n,t the clew of the cjyjj war Whejj
ss.(h i r
General Grant was elected to the presi
dency and General Sherman took com
mand of the army, some of the friends
of the latter bought the house and fnr
nishings from General Grant and pre
sented it to General Sherman, who oc
cupied it until 1874.
Residences have also been presented
to Generals Sheridan, Logan, Hancock
and Miles. Oue of the mo-t attractive
of these was that given to "Little Phil"
and is still occupied by Mrs. Sheridan.
It is in the very heart of fashionable
Washington. When General Sheridan
assumed lommand of the army in 1883
and moved from Chicago to the national
capital, a number of his Chicago friend8
quietly 'planned a gift which shonld
testify in a substantial way their love
for him. About 50,000 was qnickly
raised in the whole hearted western
way, and the handsome residence on
Rhode Island avenne was purchased and
fnrnished. It was all done so qnickly
and qnietly that the gallant general
was taken completely by surprise. The
first intimation that he had of the gift
was when the generous Chicagoans
presented him the deed to the property.
Major Georgo A. Armes, retiied,
whose ecceutiicities have given him a
wide if not always pleasing fame, again
comes into public notice, this time as
the alleged promoter of a decidedly cu
rious filibustering expedition to South
Africa. Major Alines is one of the
unique characters of Washington life.
Until within n few years ago he man
aged to keep himself very much in evi
dence. He has the distinction of having
been court martialed six times. Once
he was acquitted, once reprimanded,
three times dismissed from the army
and once sentenced to stay within 50
miles of Washington and forbidden to
wear his uniform for that period. In
each case, however, his sentence was
commuted after being partially execut
ed, owing to the efforts of influential
friends. One court martial was the re
sult of his pnlling General Beaver's
nose at the Riggs House at the time of
President Harrison's inauguration, and
another was for sending an insulting
letter to Lieutenant General Schofield
Major Armes distinguished himself
in 1884, when his daughter. Miss Cicely
Amies, married Mr. Herbert Clande.
Jnst as the young people stepped out of
the side door of St. Patrick's church,
Major Armes entered the front door
witc a warrant for the arrest of the
bridegroom. Mr. Claude declared that
the major had threatened his life for
courting his daughter, and that he had
therefore armed himself to be prepared
for any emergency. Armes' warrant
was for carrying concealed weapons,
but he was unable to serve it.
Major Armes is a native of Fairfax,
Va., and served with credit on the Fed
eral side in the civil war. No one could
ever question his personal courage. In
deed, he was thought by some to have
quite too much courage with too little
According to reports, the ostensible
purpose of the organization of which
Major Armes is said to be the head is
to reach the South African goldfields
with a company of frontiersmen, Indian
fighters, cowboys, miners and hardy
adventurers not unlike the rough riders
in our war with Spain and arrive in
just the nick of time when the mines
are being fonght over by both sides.
The promoters of the scheme declare
with charming frankness thnt they will
decide after they get there whether to
cast their fortunes with the British or

the Boers, the purpose being to side
with the party most likely to win, and
when the heat of war is moderated the
American contingent will settle down
into the possession of the gold mines
and work them for all they are worth.
Theie is one essential obstacle which
tronblcs the alleged filibusters, and that
is the fact that the Transvaal is in the
interior, and they would be obliged to
cross English or Portuguese territory to
reach the scene of action, bnt this they
profess to be able to overcome. Major
Arme is said to be carrying on an ex
tensive correspondence on the subject,
though it is extremely donbtful if the
picturesque scheme ever gets any far
ther than its existence on paper and in
the fertile imaginations of the promot
ers. However, Major Armes, who is
about 60 years of age, is still yonng
enough in spirit and full enough of vim
and fight to undertake such an adven

In the face of such a luminous exam

It was perhaps possible to overdo this
