November 24, 1891. m:idw
It was at Yarmouth that Nelson land
ed on his return from tho Mediterran
ean, and from Yarmouth that he em
barked, in 1801, for tho Baltic. The
battle off Copenhagen was one of tho
most arduoti of those won by Nolson,
from tho difficulties of the ground fc
largo shoal lying close to his snips and
from the courage and endurance of the
Danes, who were subtlued with loss
relish and more trouble than tho French.
No liraely negotintiou averted the lav
ish bloodshed of that Good Friday eve;
it was left to Nelsoa to crush the united
schemo of Russia, Sweden and Den
mark against the naval rights of Eng
land, lie won tho victory in disobeul
dienco of orders. When Sir Hyde Par
kor, who commanded the fleet, signal
ed to him to stop the action (to save
Nelson, as ho thought, the disgrace of
inevitable defeat), Nelson's remark
was: "I have only one eye, so I have
a right to bo blind sometimes. I can't
see the signal. tho signal. Keep
mine flying for closer battle."
Four years elapsed, and there follows
tho scone in tho cockpit of the Victory,
on the aftornoon of Out. 21, 1806 a
scono which is engravon on tho heart
of every Englishman, nnoqualled as it
is for pathos and dramatic power.
The central figure, the moving cause of
the enormous outburst of human ener
gy going on around, had given the im
pulso for tho last time the brilliant
rapidity of mental action and outward
movement which had done so much for
England was about to be arrosted. Mid
day was scarcely over, the blue sky
shono above, tho din of battle roared
for miles, tho great French ships, one
after another, struck their flags, tho
English yells of victory pierced tho
thunder of tho guns, when Nelson wat
laid down to die, Tho littlo valiant
fiteo kindled still at tho sounds from
without, as ho lay on a midshipman's
mattress, with his back shot through,
and tlio ominous internal gushes of
blood draining away his life. Tho tlo
spairof those grouped near him, the
awful excitement on the surrounding
sea, added peaco and solemnity to the
calm, gran a words In which ho summed
up the religion, tho uses and the suc
cesses of his life: ''Thank God, I have
donomyduty." At 4:30, three hours
after tho ball of the French rifloman in
tho rigging of tho Redoubtable had
knocked liitn over, tho soul departed
of him whom his countrymen regarded
with fond prejudice as a beloved friend,
with implicit faitli as an invincible
champion, ami with reverence as one
in whom lay stored the priceless re
sources of genius. Frtmer't Mtyazine.
Singing School Oourtsbip.
There is not a country-bred man or
woman now living but will tell you that
life can oiler notliinp: comparablo with
tho innocent zest of that old style court
ing that was done tit singing school in
tho Btarlight and candlelight of the first
half of our century. There aro few
hoarts so withered and cold but they
beat quicker sometimes when they hear
in old-fashioned c'mrches tho walling,
subbing, or exulting strains of "llrau
streot," or "China" or "Coronation,"
and tho in I ml floats down on tho cur
rent of tlieso old melodies to that fresh
young day of hopes and illusions of
voices that were sweet, no matter how
falso they sung of nights that wore
rosy with dreams, no mat tor what Fah

Prosldont Tuttle, of Wabash college,
closod his baccalaureate with words of
inspiriting counsel to the graduating
class. We commend them to all
young men who may chance to read
"For several years you have been
working for the honors of graduation.
As you reach the covoled goal, you
moot the crowds of the unemployed.
The case is not one to inspire hope. Is
tli ore anything you can do about it?
There is something you cannot do you
cannot change the fact In spite of
your ftht, the professions aro over
crowded, or at leicft, wm to bo. But
there is something you can fcv you
'can do your best!' and that is soim
thing. A select fow do it Thousands do
not We sometimes speak of aristoc
racies. Those based on woalth and
family are not tho noblest of the class.
This aristocracy, composed of those
who "do their best," is tho noblest.-
The professions are not overcrowded
with this sort, but with the other. To
be this sort of a man one that "does
his best," is as easy to be a Milo, a
Michael Angolo, or a Faul. Do you
grant it? What then? This. In that
difficult, but splendid personal trait (if
you have it,) you have the strong pre
sumption I had almost said prophecy
of success. The man who "does his
bost" has a passport sealed with the
king's signet, to somo worthy field.
There certainly is a place somewhero
for such a man.
The New Fapa In Romance.'
According to the ancient custom of
novelists and comedy writers, all fath
ers of lovely young girls were brutes,
and never did the decent thing except
on the sly.

action of a St. Louis parent, in a recent
story, bow they would rejoice for their
sisters of the present day.
"Do you love him?" asked her father.
Geraldine laughed in spite of herself.
"I have a strong impression that he
would scarcely ask me to marry him
unless he thought pretty well of me."
"Of course of course; but do you

"Well, if that's the case," said
Colonel Spencer, throwing away his
cigar, "all I've got to say is you are
both confounded simpletons if you don't
get married there."

shouts of laughter, and tho specialties
meeting with round after round of ap
plause. Col. Roberts has introduced this '
season a new feature the appearance of
three clowns a feature found in no othor

during tho performance, the introduction
being a good improvement on the old style
of one clown. Mr. Roberts' company it a
good one, and his specialty performance
fine. The three clowns are ts funny as an
audience could wish. A taking feature
is the baby elephant in the opening, one
of the most ludicrous acts ever put on the
stago. Col, Roberts' band is the best that
