BATTLE OF NAVARIN0.
Sorr.e E:xiting Incidents of This
Fierce Naval Engagement.
in the year 1827 the British adini
121, Omanney. :ook part in the battle
of Navarino. in which the English,
French and Russian ships ente:ed the
harbor of Navarino. in Greece, and
-annihilated the Turkish and Egyptian
-vessels, which were unable to leave
.theiT moorings. The battle lasted four
.lou7s. Admiral Omanney tells this
-,tf Sir Edward Codrington. t : admi
sal in command: "His ese s from
-deat-,, were marvelous. 0 that he
might .command a good view of the
battle he stood on the poop of the
Asia, the most exposed part of the
ship. He was talking with the master
,when a shot came and killed the lat
Zer at his side. A shot killed an
officer of the marines who was on the
<quarter deck just below the poop.
'The admiral left the poop only once
to go forward to talk to the boat
:sin, and while talking to him the
Ioatswain also was killed at his side.
"A bullet went through his hat, in
which it made two holes, and an
other bullet went through his loose
coat sleeve. Another bullet smashed
his gold watch. When on the poop
]he stooped his head under a rolled
:awning, and while bent like that a
.shot passed through the awning's
-ods. At another time he had just
-turned from a spot on the poop when
*the place where he had been standing
-was covered with wreckage from
aloft, which would have crushed and
bnided him. And yet throughout the
Pbattle, when men were being slain and
wounded everywhere around him,
Codrington escaped uninjured."
Other incidents of the same battle:
"An Irishman seized a musket, and,
-with a roar of 'Make way, there!' he
swept a road through the Turks by
:swinging his weapon from side to side
-with crushing force. One of my fel
ilow midshipmen, named Hicks, was
:among the boarders, many of whom
'had forgotten to take their pistols.
~Hicks shouted to the first lieutenant,
'Give them cold shot, sir!' And the
boardrs did, for they picked up the
cold shot which was lying about
-ready for the guns and hurled it down
-mpon the 'Turks."
~The Legend of theTwo Sacks."
An ancient legend describes an old
-snan traveling from place to 'place
-with a sack hanging behind his back
and another in front of him. In the
one behind him he tossed all the kind
'deeds of his friends, which were soon
eqiie hidden from view and forgotten.
In fbe one hanging around his neck,
tunder his chin, ,he threw all the sins
'wIiic'h his acquaintances committed;
:and these he was in the habit of turn
ing ,o.e and looking at as he walked
aIi'ng day .by day, which necessarily
'ne diay, te his surprise, he met a
snn ,ilso swaring two sacks.
"What:have you here?" he asked.
"Whi any good dleeds," replHed
mumber :two. "I keep them all' l
fare ime, -and take them out and ar
-"Wh-.t is in the other big sack? It
"Merely my little mistakes. I al
'ways -eep them in the sack hanging
;over my back."
Presenltly the two travelers were
~joined by a third, who strange to say,
also carried two sacks, one under his
chin and one on his back.
"Let us see the contents of your
sacks," said the first two- travelers.
-"With all my heart," quoth the
:-stranger, "for I have a goodly assort
rnent, and I like to show them. This
-sack," said he. pointing to the one
'hangling in front of him, "is full- of
-.the good deeds of others."
"'Yo-ur sack looks heavy; it must be
very il," observed the old man.
--There you are mistaken." replied
the stranger; "they are big, but not
heavy. The weight is only such as
sails are to a ship. Far fromn being a
burden, it helps me onward."
"'Well, your sack behind can be of
little use to you," said number twvo,
"'for it appears to be empty. And I
:see it has a great hole in the bottom
"I did that on purpose," said the
stranger. "for all the evil I hear of
people I pat in there, and it falls
through and is lost. So, you see, I
hIave no weight to .drag me back

An enterprising salesman from one
of the large cities went to a certain b
rural community and endeavored to IF
sell an incubator to a farmer. His
argument did not make zny impres- s

as a clincher in favor of his up-to-date

The farmer squirted a mouthful of s
