Every American youth baa bent told re
peatedly by his parent and his teachers that
bo must bo a good boy and an exemplary
young man in order to becomo the president
of tho United States. Thcro Is nothing now
in this statement, and I do not print it be

But I deslro to go a trifle further, and call
the attention ot tho American youth to tho
fact that ho must begin at a much carllor

not only acquire all the knowledgo within

Btrange things frequently happen right at

citizen opened a roll of butter which had been
purchased at a grocery, and discovered
therein a small tin box which was found to
contain a piece of paper bearing the follow

New OuhiANs, Deo. 25. A spcoial
dUpatch from Plaqucmino to tlio State
sajs: Tho burning ol the steamer ''
Joha II. Hanna last night, near this
place, was one of tho most torriblo riv
er disasters that ever happoncd in
southern waters. Tho loss of llfo is
very heavy. About 80 persons perish
ed n the flames and a lame number
jumped overboard and were drowned.
Among tho lost are (Japt J. S. Holmes
and First Clerk Samuo! It. Powell.
Their bodies have boon recovered. Cap
tain Holmes' body was terribly burned.
Bob Smith, tho old pilot of tho J. M.
White at the timo sho was burned, was
a passenger on tho Hanna and was
burned to death. His body has also
boon recovered. The engineer and pi
lot wero saved.
It was just before Christmas was b
ing ushered in that tho fino steamer
was coming down tho river. Several
of tho passangers wcro seated in the
cabin having a merry timo and with no
thought of the impending catastrophe.
Many of the crew and passengers wero .
asleep when tbo firo broke out and
spread with indesoribable rapidity.
Tho details of tho suffering and death
of some of tho passengers are harrow
ing in the cztrcme. The boat had
reached a point which was but a short
dUtanoo above tho town when a negro
roustabout near tho boiler room ran
out to tho deck and shouted that the
boat wns on fire. John Cullon, a stok
er, was near tho place at tho time, and
seeing the flames bursting foiih from
tho tiers of cotton near tne boiler, ran
hastily to tho ongine room and gavo
tho alaim. Engineer Morrian took in
tho situation at a glanco and at once
sounded the alarm by blowing tho
steam whistle and ringing tho bells.
In an inatant, certainly in a .much
shorter time than it takes to orpla'n
it, tho flames shot through the' cabin
and over tho sides of the cotton, o ivel
oping the on(ire boat in fire. Clerk
Powell was up stairs at th timo and
when ho -saw the flames he heroicaly
run through the smoke whioh filled
tho cabin and tried to arouse tho sleep
ing people, lie kicked at tne doors
and in a slioifc t'me almost ovety one
was awake, xnen the confusion and
excitement commenced. Tho frantlo
people on tho boat ran tq different exits
io mako their csoopo, but tho boat was
piled high with cotton and the passage
ways wero filled with smolo. Many
dropped boforo they wero able to get
to the forward parts of tlio boat and
were dead wbon tho steamer went
down. As Boon as tho fire was discov
ered the engineer set the steam pumps
to working .and tried to batthwith the
flamos, but the fire swept through tho
boat like a blaze on a prairio, and the
engine-room was soon in flames Then'''
to add further to tho consternation, a
steam pipo burst and filled tho place
with soafding steam. Engineer Aler
riam was forced to abandon his post
and he and the stokors and others ran
to tbo sides of the boat and ruBbed
through pell moll in order to save their
lives, as buou OB tne smote anu
flames began to staiC up the sides of
the boat, Captain Holmes and the pi
lot swung the wheel around and head
ed the boat for the shore. A full head
of steam was on at tho time, and the
boat was soon run into the bank. Be-
foro sho did so, however, sho was
doomed. All of her timber was then
furiouslv burnintr. When tho Hanna
struck the bank she bounded away
again, and swung around, drifting
down as she burned. Then Captain
Holmes jumped out over the cotton
bales and springing into the river
swam ashore. Tho sight was a weird
one viewed from the bank and town.
