THE DIAMOND SHOALS LIGHTSHIP, TAKEN AS SHE LAY BEACHED BY THE GREAT HURRI

Cnpt. Simpson of the Hntterns
Light, Spins Yarn of a Memora
ble Wreck of 30 Years Ago.
By Robert Wilson
BUXTON, Uatteras Island, N.
C, April .. —We sat in the snug
watchroom just beneath tho great
lantern of the Cape Hatteras light
house, 190 feet of steep, winding
staircase above the thundering
surf. The lantern panes sang,
strummed by a spanking sou'west
breeze. The stove glowed warm.
And when pipes were lit and the
lens overhead was rolling sweetly
on its French clockwork, swinging
its 24 fingers of light over the
fretting diamonds, Cap'n Fabe
Simpson, keeper, told messages of
"As you know, sir, this is the
most dangerous part of the At
lantic coast," began the cap'n,
snapping back the pointer of his
split second watch after timing the
six-second flash. 'The graveyard
of American shipping' some call
It. The Diamond shoals run out
sou'east from the lip of the cape
12 miles, and they're so shallow
that In low tides I've seen water
fowl out there sitting on dry sand.
"Of all tho wrecks that have
come on these banks, and they've
been many, none was worse than
the three-master that drove on the
beach at the inlet in a mighty
gale when I was a boy. One of
the crew lived on this island.

night, and the sea was so wild

Alaska Dog Repaid Kindness By
Saving Life of a Little Child
LITTLE PIERRE AND HIS DUMB RESCUER. ',
JUNEAU, Alaska, April 3. —To
the faithfulness of a broken-down
Malamute sleigh dog, Andre La
Selle, a fur trader on the Innoko
river, owes the life of his 5-year
old son, Pierre.
The canine veteran, toothless
and crippled, was unable to hold
his own with the trader's pack.
He made friends with La Selle's
child. The native dogs of Alaska
rarely show friendliness, and the
unusual attachment so Interested
the trader that he refused to kill
the animal. - ■
One day little Pierre and his
dog companion were in a boat
that had been drawn .up on the
bank. The rising water set the
craft afloat and It drifted a mile
down the river where It lodged in
l* mass of driftwood.
.-**.,.„. . ...v^.a. ■-, a-. ■ a -..,.■.-..,,-A -,..
the pilot boats couldn't get to her.
That was before the days of the
life-saving service—3o years ago,
I reckon it was. But even the
fancy self-bailing surf boats they
have nowadays couldn't have got
through that sea. No boat built
can brave these waters when Its
blowing a hurricane."
"The crew took to the rigging
soon as she struck on," continued
Cap's Fabe. "They lathed them
selves to the spars and waited. For
five days the gale blew, and for
five days we watched good men
die of hunger and cold, just out
of reach of help. It was bitter
cold December, as I remember
"There were six in the crew,
and one by one they went, while
wo watched from the beach. First,
two of the sailors. Then the cap
tain. On the fifth day there were
three left—Tolson, the mate and
tho negro cook.
"Once in a while Tolson or the
mate would move, so those ashore
knew there was still life in them.
Tolson's father was one of the
watchers. But the negro hadn't
moved for a long time, so we
reckoned he was dead.
"By and by the watchers saw
Tolson feebly climbing down to
the negro. When he reached him
ho put his ear to the man's chest
and . listened long. Then he
straightened himself, drew out his
knife, slit the negro's sleeve open
and cut the big muscle off his
right arm. This he passed up to
the mate, and he greedily sucked |
the wet blood and then ate the
meat. Tolson cut the artery in
The child's absence was noticed ,
and , a hurried search made. La
Selle and his wife were frantic
with fear when they saw the old |
dog leap into the water from the -
opposite bank and fight his way ,
across the river.
The trader paddled out to meet
tne dog, which immediately ,
started swimming down stream?
He followed and found the lost i
youngster, when the drift was
breaking up and the boat ln dan
ger of starting down river again.
If there had been any chance
of La Selle killing the dog that
chance vanished when he realized
that to the broken down veteran
he owed the life of his little boy.

"All that day they kept up
strength by eating the flesh of the
dead man. By night they had con
sumed the other arm muscle and
the calves of his legs. But that
night the wind dropped and -the
two men were saved.
. "Tolson lost both legs at the
knees, because his feet had been
frozen white. The vessel owners
treated him real well, though.
They bought him artificial feet
and gave him some money. He
didn't go to sea after that."
The cap'n reached for the stop
watch and timed thj light again.
"Down here," said Cap'n Fabe,
snapping the watch and easing his
back against the whitewashed
bricks, "we reckon thing- from the
August storm. That was a West
Indian hurricane that moved up
the coast in the late summer of
1898. It was the hardest gale
any of us here ever saw.
"Three days It blew 70 miles an
hour from tho nor'east, and then'
after a short calm the wind backed
into the eou'east and blew a hurri
cane from there for a day. The
weather station at the inlet re
corded 130 miles an hour and then
the cups blew off the wind gauge.'
Thero were four wrecks on the
beach inside of 30 miles. The
tide was over the beach.
"Tho third day of the blow the
Diamond Shoal lightship broke
from her moorings.
"I went to Niagara Falls once,"
said Cap'n Simpson. "It cost me
like fury. I dickered with a man
to drive mo around for $1.50.
When-that was over a man wanted
to take me to see the rapids.
"Roughest water in the world," he
"When I'd seen it I said to him
'Young man, probably you think
this 13 rough water. But it ain't
the roughest in the world. I could
take you out on the Diamonds and
show you one break that would
drown your whole show,' And I
reckon that's right, too. It isn't
exactly breakers on the Diamonds
but waves shooting straight —
75 feet high, some of them."
