THE BLACK SCOURGE!
That Fearful and Mystic Visita
tion of Olden Days.
iT FOLLOWED IN WAR'S WAKE.
In the Fourteenth Century It Swept -he
Whole of Europe, Killing 25.000,000
In Three Years-The Pestilence In!
The plague or pestilence, that myste
rious and fearful visitation which has i
moved its hosts in the wake of armies
to slay more than war itself, is sup
posed to have first originated among
the dense masses of people who crowd
ed together in the great cities of Asia
and Egypt or who formed the encamp
ments of Xerxes, Cyrus and Tamer
lane the Tartar. It probably sprang
from the impurity which must have
existed in the midst of such vast gath
erings and in part also from leaving
the unburied dead upon the field of
battle. At any rate, the germs of this
fearful human poison have always
been most active where conditions
similar to those have prevailed. It
has always been war and the march of
armies that have spread it broadcast
over the world from time to time, and
as war became less frequent and less
worl,1wide the frequency and extent
of these ravages have lessened also.
The first recorded outbreak of the
plagiUe in Europe occurred in the six
teenth century. It came from lower
Egypt. This was the first lapping of
the wave that reached into the east
again. there to stay its movements, so
far es the west was concerned, until
544 A. D., when the returning legions
of the Emperor Justinian brought it
again into the western world from the
battl.fields of Persia. Constantinople
was the first place it attacked. Here
in a single day as many as 10.000 per
sons are said to have fallen victims to
it. I ut the plague did not stop with
Cons antinople. It had found a too
cong--nial soil in Europe, which was
little else than one great battlefield at
the lime. It was carried into Gaul,
whei : it followed close in the wake of
the rankish armies, and from Gaul
it n. ved into Italy, with the Lom
bard-. and so devastated the country
as t. leave it entirely at the mercy
of tbi invaders.
The various crusades, which extend
ed o -. a space of about 200 years, no
doubL did much to hold the pestilence
in E-2rope, for they served to keep
open the channels of intercourse be
tween the east and the west. Periodic
epideaics were common during their
continuance, and these seem to have
culminated in tb fourteenth century
with what is'known in history as the
black death. The black death was
more fatal to human life than any
other single cause since the world be
gan. The havoc of war was nothing
in comparison to it. It swept the
whole of Europe, leaving in its path
such misery and destitution vs the
world had never known. It illed in
three years some 25,000.000 people.
Such figures stagger the comprehen
sion, but the records of the time can
not be doubted. The entire population
of Europe is estimated to have been
about 100,000,000, kept down as it was
by the constant warfare, and of these
at least a fourth perished.
The ravages of the plague in Italy,
where it came in the track of the war
of the Guelphs and Ghibellines, was
parti-:ularly disastrous to mankind. It
rageC with terrible fury in Naples,
where 00,000 persons are said to have
died. It fell upon Pisa, and seven out
of every ten perished. It utterly and
forever destroyed the prosperity of
Siena. Florence also suffered severely,
while 100.000 of the inhabitants of
Te-nice were literally wiped off the
face of the earth. From Italy it moved
into France, where the mortality was
almost as great. In Paris alone 50,000
people died from it. One of the worst
features presented by the history of
the black death was the cruel persecu
tion it aroused against the Jews. They
were supposed to have infected the air
in some mysterious manner, and they
were accused of having poisoned the
wells and .springs. In Strassburg 2,000
of theta were buried alive in their own
The order of the Flagellanto arose
at this time, coming from the belief
that the sins of the world had at last
brought down the wrath of heaven. It
was the beginning of the so called
hundr-ed years' war that carried the
black death into England, where in
London its victims numbered 100,000.
When at last the plague had worked
its rav-ages it doubled back over its
course to disappear in the east. Later
on it appeared again in England,
first atmong the soldiers of Richmond
after the battle of Bosworth Field,
and i. hen the victorious army marched
to Lcoidon the plague went with them
to w ek its havoc there. As long as it
laste. the mortality was as great as
that caused by the black death half a
centu: y before. Five thousand people
died five weeks, and then the plague
left 1 andon as suddenly as it had ap
pearc. there to sweep over the rest of
In 3 -otland the plague of 1568 came
immc lately after the battle of Lang
side. '.:hen Queen Mary was dethron
ed, b" t no records of the mortality it
occas ned seem to have been pre
serveu. The plague visited London in
1075. T'his followed after the civii war
which ended with the death of Charles
1L., but so many years intervened that
it Is izupossible to trace any connection
bet'ween the two events. In modern
wars tlanger from the plague seems
gradually to have lessened perhaps as
a result of better sanitary conditions
maintained by the armies of today.

A BOY PIONEER.
Joseph Watt's Fateful Journey to Ore
gon In 1844.
In 1844, when emigrants from the
middle states were going to make
homes in Oregon. many young boys
joined the pioneers and made the hard
journ-v over the plains and mnuun
tains. One of tth-se lads. Jo.seph Watt
of .\iissuri. is described by the gmthor
of "McDonald of Oregon." H was
about seventeen years of age and wv:
employed to drive cattle. Ile walked
most of the way to his new home.
"I have borrowed $2.-0. Joe. to fit
you out." his father had said at part
ing. and with that the young man
had bought a pair of boots and invest
ed the rest in pins and fishhooks to
trade with the Indians. But new
boots: He slung them over his rifle
and put on moecasins.
At a certain point in the journey,
away back on Burnt river, the man
for whom Joe was driving said: "You
had better leave us and hurry on into
Oregon. Provisions are getting scarce.
We shall need all there is for the chil
"All right. I can taite care of my
self." Without a morsel of food Joe
Watt and Elisha Bowman struck out
with their rifles-and Joe's boots.
-If we could only eat the boots!"
sighed Joe. Bare to the knees from
continually cutting otf his trousers to
mend his moccasins, he strode through
the lacerating sagebrush.
"How are you going to get down?"
inquired the boatman when every
other eager passenger had piled on
the Hudson Bay bateau sent up by Dr.
McLoughlin. Alone on the shore stood
Joe Watt. "How are you going to get
"I don't know."
"Have yov any.provisions?'"
"Can you sing or tell yarns?"
"Very well; climb on to the bow of
that boat." So they started.
"Well. figurehead, pipe up:" was the
With sad and solemn eyes, without
a smile. Joe sang and told stories.
Everybody laughed. The weary emi
grants needed entertainment, and Joe
was a born comedian.
The doctor was building a flour mill
at the falls, and with some misgivings
Joe was engaged as a carpenter. At
night he slept in the shavings. The
first pay day he was rich. With $12
in hand, clothes, soap. Hudson Bay
blankets were his.
Never blankets felt so soft. Passing
his hand thoughtfully over the wool,
within sound of the potential falls, a
great idea came into the heart of Jo
seph Watt. "I will build woolen mills
on this Pacific coast." Years later the
boy fulfilled this resole.--Youth's Com
The Hawaiian Alphabet.
There are but twelve letters in the
Hawaiian alphabet. These, with their
pronunciations, are: A (ah), e (a), o (0
as in ho), u (oo), h (hay), k (kay), 1
(la), m (moo), n (noo), p (pay) and w
(vay). The missionaries added a thir
teenth, t, but the natives won't have
it and continue to pronounce, for in
stance, the name of the root from
which poi is made "kara," although the
missionaries have it "tara." Every
voel in a word is distinctly sounded
except that the vowels ai are sounded
"i," as in English. Waikiki, the beach
in Honolulu, is properly pronounced
"Vikeekee." There is a great differ
ence in the speech of the high and low
caste natives. The first call their is'
land group "H~a-va-ee-ee," and the lat
ter begin it all right with "Ha," but
conclude with a guttural grunt, and
the word heard most, "Aloha." sounds
soft and beautiful on the lips of the
first, but is a lazy, good natured grunt
as the latter speak it. Aloha is in
their limited vocabulary at once a
greeting and farewell, a formal ex
pression of regard and of deep love.
In the latter case it is increased in
warmth and depth of meaning by
modifying adjectives annexed instead
of prefixed, as "Aloha nui." "-Aloha
nui Ioa," or even "Aloha nui loa kea!"
-and then it is time to speak to papa.
Fans From a Fish's Fins.
Curious little fans are made from
the ectoral fins of the fish known as
the sea robin. The sea robin is not
a very large fish, but its pectoral fins
are large in proportion to its size, and
in nature they suggest fans from the
manner in which the fish opens and
closes them. The pectoral fins of the
smaller sea robins are marked with
brown, those of the larger fishes with
maroon, beautifully shaded. The fins
have many rays or ribs. In making a
fan the fin is first stretched out on a
board to dry. A large fin will make a
fan about six inches in breadth. The
rays spread out in it, as the split bam
boo strips do in a Japanese fan, ex
cept that the rays are tapering, and
they are much slenderer and more deli
cate. When the fin is dry it is mount
ed as a fan, and when it has been
thus completed it is dipped in varnish.
The varnish not only brings out the
colors, but it serves also as a pre
servative. Thus treated the fan will
last for years.
Sentient Alarm Clocks.
"Devil dogs" are a species of alarm
clock used in Greece for the purpose of
keeping persons awake, such as watch
men, stage drivers and railroad men.
They are generally small black dogs.
Should the person whom the "devil
dog" is detailed to keep awake be a
stage driver, the dog is strapped to a
little stool beside him, and throughout
the journey he keeps up a sharp bark
ing, often causing the passengers to
keep awake as well as the driver.
At times he will pause for a minute
or two to moisten his parched, rasped
throat at the basin of water set before
him and then begin again.
A weak stomach, means weak stom
ach nerves, always. And this is also
true of heartaud kidneys.It's a pity that
sick ones continue to drug the stomach
or stimulate the heart and kidneys.
The weak nerves, n, .he organs them
selves need this help. This explains
why Dr. Shoop's Restorative has and is
promptly helping so many sick ones. It
goes direct to the cause of these dis

A TERRIBLE BIG TROUT.
He Was Cunning and a Hard Case,
Toe, Was This Fish.
We were camping in northern Wis
consin, and one evening after our sup
per of black bass and bacon we lay
under the pine trees smoking and tell
ing fish stories in whih it was always
the "bigger bass" that got away. The
guide listened with the gravity of a
man who knew all about fish stories,
and finally le knocked the ashes from
his pipe and told us a story.
"Once long ago," he said, "there was
a terrible big trout up in Smith's
pool. Every fellow who fished in the
pool had hooked him one time or an
other, but he always got away, bit off
the snood or something.
"I tried to catch him myself a dozen
times. One day I was sitting by the
pool when, splash, a young robin
fluttered out of the nest on a limb!
above the pool into the water below.
In a minute there was a rush, a gleam
of yellow, and the old trout had
thrown himself clear out of the water
and had swallowed the young robin
"What did I do? Well, I climbed
that tree in short order, got another
one of those young robins, baited my
hook with ft and threw it in just as
lIghtly as I could. In a minute there
was another rush, another gleam of
yellow, and again the old trout jump
ed clear out of the water as he swal
lowed the robin, and in a minute more
I had him hooked.
"It was lacky I wasn't fishing with
any of this newfangled rigging these
boys use and that I wasn't bothered
with a reel to look after, or I would
have lost him sure. As it was it took
me a devil of a time to get him out.
"Good to eat? Great Scott! We
didn't try to eat him. He was so full
of hooks we sold him for old iron.
That end-d our fish stories for that
night.-J. J. A. in Chicago Tribune.
Stones and Wooden Tubes Filled With
Lead First Used.
There appear to be two ideas which
have led up to the invention of the
modern anchor-first, that of attach
ing the vessel by means of a rope
or chain to a weight sufficiently heavy
to keep the vessel from moving when
the weight has sunk to the bottom of
the sea, and, second, that of using a
hook instead of or in addition to the
weight, so as to catch in the bottom.
The English word anchor is practical
ly the same as the Latin ancora and
the Greek angkura, meaning "that
which has an angle," from the root
The earliest anchors made on the
hook principle probably only had one
fluke instead of two. In the "Sussex
Archaeil, Coll." there is an illustration
of what has been surmised to be an
anchor made out of the natural forked
branch of a tree. It was found with
an ancient British canoe at Burpham.
Sussex. There is in the British muse-.
umn an interesting leaden anchor with
two flukes bearing a Greek inscrip
tion. Its date is about 50 B. C., and it
was found off the coast of Cyrene.
The invention of the anchor with
two flukes is attributed by Pausanius
to Midas, by Pliny to Eupalamuas and
by Strabo to Anacharsis. Diodorus
Siculus states that the first anchors
were wooden tubes filled with lead,
while another classical writer says
that before the introduction of metal
anchors lumps of stone with a hole
through the middle for the attach
ment of the cable were used.I

frequently embarrassed by jokes his

was-aimimense crocodile more than
twelve feet long.
I was right in its path. and there was
no p:>ssile escape on either side, so I
stood still with my ritle at shoulder
and waited. The "crock" did not walt,
however, and in some remarkable way
it hustled me to one side, almost knock
ed me over. and endeavored to make his
way to the water.
To dispute his right of way would
have been folly. I realized only a hor
rible, soft, wriggling mass pressing
against my legs in a most sickening
way. Why le did not bite me I do not
know. At first I thought he had done
so as he brushed against my leg, but I
found it was only his horny scales that
scraped my shin. And he was more
taken by surprise than 1 was and for
got all about his huge jaw and the
lasting impression he might have made
upon my legs. .
After he had passed I turned to see
how the men would fare. One had got
back to the shore and so was no longer
in view. The other man with the. cam
era was the funniest sight.: His head
was stuck fast in the thick brambles,
and his legs were in the air, the cam
era of course in the mud beside him.
I do not think the "cr3ck" could have
seen him, for he had literally taken a
header into the bush, and his legs were
far above the crocodile's jaws.

Poe's Devotion to His Wife.
No picture of Poe in Philadelphia
would be complete, writes E. P. Ober
holtzer in Book News, if we do not
remember his poetic attachment for
hi girl wife and his love for high lit
erary ideals, so faithfully evidenced
in his osvn writing and in his criticism
of the work of other men. "His love
for his wife was a sort of rapturous
worship of the spirit of beauty which
he felt was fading before his eyes."
Mr. Graham wrote after the poet's
death: "It have seen him hovering
around her .when she was ill, with all
the fond fear and tender anxiety of
a mother for her firstborn, her slight
est cough causing in him a shudder, a
heart chill that was visible. I rode
out one sun'mer evening with them,
and the remembrance of his watchful
eyes eagerly bent upon the slightest
change of hue in that loved face
haunts me yet as the memory of a
sad strain." Recollecting that when
she was gone honest sorrow mingled
with the poverty that hung about him
like a thick cloud through which no
sun shone, we can afford to forgive
much in those last misspent days.
