Mr. W. W. Thompson, of the mechanical

years in the wildest legions on with ami

ing on his leet. Horn in Scotland fifty
three years ago, but reared in New York
city, he learned tho trade of an engineei

Sepoy i ehel lion. Ho fought It through, ol
course, as every white man thorn had tc

hunting and then went to South America
for a i est, accompanied by his wife.
The rest consisted in engineeiing for the
famous Henry Meiggs in "tho wildest part
of Peru and among a people for whom he
can find no terms sufllciently strong. In
laziness, cowardice, treachery, thieving nnd
immorality he thinks tho lower class ot

a rawhldo till they agreed to work, or gave
up stolen property.
The experience of railroad men in Peru
was a wild compound of romance and
tragedy. Mountains of the hardest rock,
hills of sliding sand, chasms 0,000 feet deep
and tall clilfs, along with hurricanes and
earthquakes, they did not mind; it was the
necessity of incessant care against tho mur

out tho nervous system. In some section.'
there is a good population, but there are
regions in tho hot lands where every bush
has a thorn and every insect a sting, every
worm is vile and every snake Is venomous,
and every man is an assassin. Evidently

Weddings in high life are always inter
esting, and it is not to be wondep-d nt that
all fashionable London was thrilled tho
other day, the common folks crowding
around the church doors, when Miss Daisy
Cornwallis West was ecclesiastically made
the Princess of Plow. Tho groom is Prince
Hans I Ielnrich, eldest son of tho Prince
and Princess of Pless, of the Schloss ot
Furstenstein, Silesia, and tho bride the
eldest daughter of Colonel William Corn

of a family not unknown in Ameiicau wai
Among those present were the Prince ot
Wales, Duke and Duchess of'Connaught,
Duke of Teck, Prince and Princess of Saxe
Weimar, the German, Turkish, Russian
and Italian embassadors, Mr. Henry White
nnd Commander Emory, of tho United
States; Prince and Princess Mnlcom Khan,
and a long array of ordinary lords, ladies,
counts, knights and esquires; but thu
great interest appears to have been in
the dresses and presents. St. Margaret's
church, Westminster, whero the ceiemony
took place, was in a blaze of silks, jewels
and costly decorations, and at tho town
'residence of Miss Fleetwood Wilson, where
tho reception was held, a long dining room
table was literally loaded with gifts, rang

down tosapphiro bracelets.

of sons of Belial wero holding forth.

that ran from tho dozen or moro cells
of tho battery, tho executioner began
his work without ceremony.
Tho minute tho wires touched tho
cago a bell set up an infernal ringing.
Tho amateur electrician was not
aware that his wires wero short cir

squeaking rodent ho was somewhat
surprised to see tho littlo pest make
a savago effort to bito tho shurp

Two Compliments for tho Queen.
Tho compliment paid to our pres
ent queen by tho sovereign of Zanzi
bar is worth repeating. It is a fmo
piece of oriental poetry. Ho said that
ho mentally likened her "to that
mountain of loadstono mentioned in
tho 'Thousand nnd Ono Nights, 'which
drow tho nails out of tho sides of the
ships which passed that way. Even
so did tho hearts of tho Englishmen
I have hitherto met seem drawn on
by a magnet to her majesty." A
pretty compliment indeed. Tho fol
lowing, howovor, is still better, it
somewhat grotesque in its termina
tion. It is credited to a Siameso em
bassador, who wroto of tho queen
thus: "Ono cannot but bo struck
with tho aspect of tho august queen
of England, or fail to observe that
she must bo of pure descent from a
raco of goodly and warlike kings nnd
rulers of tho earth, in that her eyes,
complexion and, abovo all, her bear
ing, aro those of a beautiful and
majestic whito elephant. "Loudon

CAPTAIN OF THE NEW YORK.

It was a great event In the history of the
United States navy, nnd naval circles were
all alive with curiosity to learn who was
to be her commander. The choice is made
nnd the man is Captain John W. Philip,
recently In command of tho Atlanta.
His biography lends like a sea tale outnl
FVulmore Cooper. He wns born In IStDut
Kluderhook, N Y wns admitted to the
naval academy in 18.V), graduated In 1WS1
and entered at once into the most stirring
episodes of the civil war. Most of his
service was on blockading vessels, and dur
ing tho great naval attack on Fort Suiutet
he was on the monitor Moutauk. He next
went to China as executive olllcer of tho
Wachusett, and from IWi'J till IS72 served
as executive on the Richmond, of tho
European squadron. After two years in
tho service of tho Pacillc Mail Steamship
company he returned to tho navy, was
mado captain In IbS!), nnd In 18'JOwasput
in command of tho Atlanta.
Of the forty-fivo captains in the navy only
six have had more sea servicetlmn Captain
Philip, his record covering seventeen years
nnd nine months. When he lelt the At
lanta at Fort less .Monroe to take charge ot
tho Xew York he was lowed over to hi"
new vostsel by a full crew of oulcentau
unprecedintid compliment, hut none too
marked lot the louiuiauder of the pride o
the raited states navy.'
