, L'OLONNOIS, THE CRUEL.
We Was the Most Ferocious of All the
Frank R. Stockton is writing "The
Bucaneers of Our Coast" in St. Nich
sbas. In a late number he says:
Among the buccaneer leaders who dis
tinguished Ithemselves as land pirates
was Francis L'Olonnois, a Frenchman.
In those days it w.s the custom to en
force servitude upon people who are
not able to take care of themselves; un
fortunate debtors and paupers of all
classes were sold to people who had
need of their services. Boys and girls
were sold for a term of years, some
what as if they had been apprentices;
and it so happened that the boy L'Olon
iois was sold to a master who took him
to the West Indies. There he led the
life of a slave until he was of age; and
then, being no longer subject to owner
ship, he became one of the freest and
most Independent persons who ever
walked this earth. He began his
career on the island of Hispaniola,
where he took up the business of hunt
nlug and butchering cattle, but he soon
became a pirate, and enlisted as a com
men sailor on one of their ships. Here
he gave signs of being so brave and un
scrupulous that one of the leading p1.
rates on the island of Tortuga gave him
a ship and a crew, and set him up in
business. The career of L'Olonnois
was much like that of other buccaneers
,f the day except that he was abomin
ably cruel to his Spanish prisoners.
All the barbarities attributed to the
pirates of the world were united in the
career of this wretch, who does not ap
pear to be so good an example of the
true pirate as Roc, the Brazilian. He
was not so brave, he was not so able,
and it would be Impossible for any one
to look uponehim as a hero. After hav
Ing attainedjn a short time the reputa
tion of being the wieedest pirate of his
day, L'Olonnois was unfortunate
enough to be wrecked upon the coast
near Campeachy. He and his crew
came safely to shore, but it was not
long before their presence was discov
ered by the people of the town, and the
Spanish soldiers attacked them. There
was a fierce fight, but the Spaniards
were stronger, and the buccaneers were
utterly defeated. Many were killed,
wounded, or taken prisoners.
Among the wounded was L'Olonnois,
and when the Spaniards walked over
the battlefield, he was looked upon as
killed. When the soldiers had retired,
he steauthily arose and made his way
Into the woods, where he stayed until
his wounds were well enough for him
to walk about. He divested himself of
his great boots, his pistol-belt, and the
rest of his piratical costume, and add
ing to his scanty rainment a cloak and
hatwhich he had stolen from a poor cot
tage, he boldly approached the town,
and entered IL. He looked like a very
ordinary person, and no notice was
taken of him by the authorities. Here
he found shelter and something to eat,
and he soon began to make himself
very much at home in the streets of
