But for Which Napoleon Would Have
Won at "Waterloo.
Urited Service Review.
Napoleon would have won the battle
of Waterloo had Grouchy prevented
the junction of the Prussians with the
English army, because he would not
have had to fight two battles at once.
Few persons realize that th 2 so-called
battle of Waterloo was In reality a
double battle, somewhat I'.ke Jena and
Auerstadt. Napoleon £on~ht one bat
tle at Waterloo against the English.
On the arrival of the Prussians he
was forced to go in person toward
Planchenoit, and there fight another
battle against the Prussian army, leav
ing to Ney the conduct of the troops
at Waterloo. It is a well known max
im In war that a very great or decisive
victory cannot be gained unless one
commander ir.ake:~ a serious blunder,
of which the other takes immediate ad
vantage. It is very evident that th«
fact of the emperor's having to fight
two battles at once, instead of concen
trating h!s attention to one alone, enor
mously increased the possibility of a
mistake. Moreover, Napoleon did not
have the able lieutenants of his former
campaigns. Desaix, L.annea and Bes
pieres were dead, Massena and Mao
donald had taken the oath of alls
glance to the Eourbons, and Murat had
eplit with the emperor.
Napoleon's personal attention was,
therefore, imperative. To Grouchy alone
all blame must be attributed, for had j
he prevented the union of the Prussians
with the English, .the emperor would
have had to fight only one battle at
a time, and could have given his entire
personal attention to that one battle.
In the second place Napoleon would
not have been forced to fight with
71,947 men against two armies num
bering about 125,000 —nearly two to one
against him. He would have had 71,947
good soldiers pitted against a raw, un
disciplined army of 67,661 men under
the Duke of Wellington, which was not j
only inferior in mere numbers, but far i
Inferior in morale and experience. The |
chances would have been greatly in |
favor of the French. Then, too, the i
French army was commanded by the
acknowledged master of modern war
fare, whose brilliant successes at Juvoli,
Marengo, Austerlitz, Jena, Friedland,
Wagram, the Borodina and Dresden i
had •dazzled the whole world. Until
then Napoleon had never been defeated
In any great decisive battle except
I^eipsic, and the French were strong in
their confidence of the emperor's sue-'
cess. Two of the best writers on the j
Waterloo campaign—Shaw-Kenedy and j
Sibourne, both Englishmen—concur in
saying that, had Grouchy kept the
Prussians away, the English army !
would have been badly beaten. This j
view is also held by the ablest writer
of all, Mr. Ropes.

HE EULOGIZES LINCOLN,
AXD THE GREAT WAR LEADERS
WHO ONE AXD ALL ROSE
BIT AVAR TEXDS TO DESTROY.
He Advise* His Hearers to Do Their
Part to Ennoble and Preserve
President Cyrus Northrop yesterday after
noon delivered the baccalaureate address to
the graduating classes of the state univers
ity. The exercises were held at Wesley Meth
odist church, which was filled to overflowing
by the audience which gathered to see the
j clacs and hear the closing words of the presi
j dent to them. Not less than 2,500 people were
The members of the claps assembled in the
basement of the church, and were formed
in line according to departments. At 3
I o'clock the graduates, in double file, marched
I to seats reserved for them in the body of
] the church. The academics, dressed in the
; classic cap and gown of Bomber black, in
j which the fair co-ed is scarcely distinguished
i from her brother, headed the procession, num-
I bering 110 young men and women, lnclud-
I ing engineers and graduates of t'::e agricultural
j department. Following next came members
of the law school, about 100 in number, and
| bringing up the rear, the members of the
I medical department, representing medicine,
dentistry and pharmacy. Graduate students
came with the members of the department
in which they were pursuing advanced study,
and the entire column would number close
ito 400 students—a small army. Each de
| partwent was arranged by Itself, and at a
| given signal the whole body was seated as one
The exercises began with an organ prelude,
followed by music from the University choir,
"Largo," from Hande!. The invocation was
then pronounced by Rev. W. M. Kincaid, of
Andrew Preebyter:an church, and a selection
j from scriptures road by Rev. Matt S. Hughes,
I.astor of Wesley church, after which Miss
Nellie Judd rendered "With Verdure Clad "
from Mozart. Rev. William Fielder, of the
First Methodist church, led in prayer, and
following this the audience joined in singing
The president's address was of a patriotic
nature, appropriate for the Memorial day sea
son. In brief, it pointed out that the des
tinies of our country have been guided from
the first by an ever-controlling Providence.
It was Intended to impress upon the young
people, about to start upon the voyage of life,
i the necessity of deserving well of their coun-
I try. The address was delivered in President
! Northrop's own forceful manner, and was
i closely followed by the audience.
In speaking of the men brought to the
front by the war, he said:
"It is a question sometimes raised
whether great events produce great men,
or whether great men produce great events.
When John Brown's raid occurred at Har
per's Ferry in li>s9, and the whole country
I was shaken by it, hardly one of the men
who were to be most prominent in the war,
then but two years distant, had espccluily
attracted public attention. The story of
our military commanders In the war is
another illustration of the doctrine of evo
lution, and of the survival of the fittest.
Many were called, but few were chosen.
j In the, silent hero, wtip at last became ihe
commanding general and whose plans guided
all the armies of the Union to final victory.
It would be hard to reeognlzo the rou:?h and
not too successful tanner of Galena of five
; years before. The great man of the tfepub
j lican party from the time of its organization
was William H. Seward.
"Nobody at that time saw the coming man,
yet in a little law office in Central Illinois
the tall, gaunt, strong-faced man who had tri
umphantly met Douglas in debate; a self
made man who did his own thinking; a
man with no experience in diplomacy, and
little experience in legislation; a man with
out the culture of the schools or the graces
of manner tiiat mark the well-bred gentle
man: a man, in fact, of the blood of the poor
Southern white, was waiting to hear whatever
summons might come to him. It came—a
summons to the presidency of the country.
He came to the front, as conspicuous for his
height as Saul among the people. And as the
sad years of war and suffering rolled on, he
proved himself not less pre-eininent for all
those intellectual and moral qualities which
belong to the man who is both great and
good. He was the greatest figure of the cen
tury, raised up for a great occasion. No man
in all history has had so many tears shed for
him at his death as fell from the eyes of
the American people when Abraham Lincoln
died. Grant, Sheridan, Meade, Hancock
Thomas, Terry, all are gone, and only one or
two of the secondary luminaries still linger
above the horizon. But when ail are gone,
and when the great company of noble men
who fought under them shall have melted
into dust, America will remain purer and
nobler for what they did; more truly than
ever before, 'the land of the free.' "
The president hereupon addressed the grad
uating class, who arose in their places be
• fore him. He continued:
"Ladles and Gentlemen of the Graduating
Class: It is not enough that the country is
free. A people who govern themselves are
free; but to govern well they must be intel
ligent, wise and patriotic. The evidence is
unmistakable and abundant that in our coun
try today the political power is not uni
formly in the hands of intelligent, wise
and pariotic men. Has our country been
j ennobled by its baptism of blood? No war
I more just was ever waged than that for
i the preservation of the Union, and, as it
proved, for the destruction of slavery. But
a nation never yot went through a long and
bloody war, no matter how just, and came
out of It In aa good condition as when the
war began. It has lost large numbers of its
best citizens. War tends to destroy the sa
erednesa of life, tends to demoralize those j
engaged in it, a calamity avoided only when
hearts are kept tender by constant proofs of
love from tho dear ones at home.
"Again, war unsettles values, Inflates the
currency, produces.-..deceptive mirages of
wealth, excites greed, wastes billions, and
yet seems to make the, nation richer, makes
possible vast fortunes, and In every way stim
ulates all evil desire for gain. It will take
years to bring matters back to the sweet rea
sonableness of peaceful days. Many a severe
lesson of business depression and financial
ruin will be learned before the nation can
resume its old-time patience and comfort.
But America, however great may be her bus
lnesa depression, ia yet rich and strong in all
things needed for comfort in life; ana there
Is no reason why we should long be an un
happy people, if we will only learn to mod
erate our desires and to be content with |
enough. It will be a happy day when we I
learn to be content without being rich; when j
Immense fortunes are seen to be unnecessary j
for comfort: and when an equitable distribu- |
tion of wealth, brought about by diminished \
greed of capital and a universal participa- j
tion in labor shall multiply the happy homes
of our country, transform the vagrants into '
workmen, and the workmen Into contented
citizens having an assured support.
"The day for wasteful prodigality and empty
ostentation has gone by. The time for econ- j
omy, prudence, carefulness, the virtues of j
thfi fathers and mothers of the republic, has !
come. Let us then resolve that so far as !
lies In our power the land in which we live ;
shall not be merely the land of freedom, j
but the land of justice to all—that the sac- '
rifices of the past shall not have been made
In vain: and that the great republic, found- \
ed by the faith of the fathers, and sustained
by the heroism of the sons, shall be kept
by us true to the purpose for which It was
established,' to be administered by honest and
patriotic men, and to be in reality the land j
of the free and the home of the brave.
"I congratulate you ujjrin having received
such a training as will fit you to take an in
fluential part in the affairs of the state and
the nation. Wherever you may be, let your
influence always be felt in favor of
righteousness. I shall always feel a deep
interest in your work; my heartiest wishes
for your success will accompany you, and I
pray that the blessing of God may rest upon
you all, and abide forever. Farewell."

SAVED THE SHIP BY AX UMBRELLA.
Trick of a Smart Yankee Captain to
Elude a Hostile Fleet.
! Boston Transcript.
An interesting relic in the Charles
town Navy Yard museum is an umbrel
; la, which was used by the Constitution
j in making her escape from the British
■ fleet in July, 1812. This is all that is
j told by the card attached to it, and the
j umbrella is a complete puzzle to near
ly every one who visits the museum.
In the first place it Is utterly unlike
any umbrella any one ever saw before,
and, in the second, not one person in
| a hundred is able to figure out how
the Constitution made use of it in mak
j ing her escape from the British ves
sels. It is exactly like the umbrella
) frame in general shape, but the stick
is about ten feet long, with a heavy
iron ring at each end, and is about three
inches in diameter. The frame slides
up and down on it, just like the frame
of an ordinary umbrella, and is made
j of stout iron bars. Some people think
that it may have been set up on the
I deck to give the officers a little shade
I on a hot day, but they cannot see how
this helped in the escape. The pur
pose for which it was intended and
used was for a sea anchor, and its
story is as follows: '*3 -
On the 18th of July, 1812, tliif'Constl
tution, then cruising under %$£ com
i maud of that famous old fighter, Isaac
Hull, was surrounded by Brooke's
I squadron of five vessels. Before they
could close in on him, however, it fell
calm, and Capt. Hull at once made
use of the umbrella, of which there
were two aboard. A cable was bent to
one of the umbrellas at what would
be the handle in one of the ordinary
kind, and the umbrella was folded up
and taken out by a boat to a cable's
length ahead of the vessel. It was then
thrown overboard, and as soon as the
crew began to haul in on the windlass
it, of course, spread out, giving a drag
by which the vessel could oe warped
ahead. While the vessel was warping
up to this one, the other one was taken
out, and before the British had dis
covered what Hull was doing, he had
gotten outside of the circle with which
they had surrounded him. They im
mediately began to pursue the same
tactics, but he ran two twenty-four
pound guns out of-his cabin windows,
and kept them from getting anywhere
near him, as, whenever one of the boats
carrying out a drag, came up astern of
him, he would fire with one of the
"Long Toms," and In this way kept
the ships from closing in. This was
kept up for two days, and on the even
ing of the second day came up a squall.
Hull carried sail through it, gaining
such an advantage over the English
men that he was able to. elude them
In the night, and was out of sight the
next morning. Thus, but for the un
couth-looking umbrella at the navy
yard, the Constitution would probably
have been captured or sunk, and some
| of the fairest pages in our naval his
tory would have remained unwritten.
THE POLICEMAN'S CLUB.
A Device by Wkich the Nl»ht Stick
May Be Used as a Light.
Kansa City Times.
Commisioner Grant, of New York,
whose especial duty as a member of the
police board is to look after the equip
ment of the force, is much interested In
a communication he has received from
an Astoria man, to the effect that he
has invented a device by which the ends
of policemen's night sticks may be
Neither electricity nor phosphorus is
to be used in the new night sticks, as
was guessed at headquarters when the
communication was received; neither
is any glass used in its construction.
Briefly, the device consists of a hollow
head, which may be attached to any
ordinary police club. The upper end
of this is closed by a heavy metal cap
with a spring hinge and a peculiar
Inside this hollow head Is a spring,
above which is placed a pencil composed
of magnesium and other chemicals.
When the holder of the club wants a
light he presses a spring, which releases
the cap and causes it to fly open. The
special spring inside at the same time
quickly forces out the composition pen
cil, which becomes ignited by friction.
It is said that it will burn for a quar
ter of an hour, giving a strong, bright
Some girls are prudish, some discreet.
And some so reckless as to flirt,
But all of them are truly sweet
So long as men are not too pert.
Some publicly condone a thing
Which they would not in private do,
And never say a -word to sting
Another girl, however true!
And some will openly condemn
What they themselves would most enjoy—
Provided that no one but them
Could make it known, and thus annoy!
But through them all runs some romance—
A vein of It, however small;
And none of them will lose a chance

DO KOT WISH TO BE KNOWS.
Experience of a Dnsinesa Man With
One of These Wont
The latest phase of the new woman
is the woman with an alias. This does
not refer to stage people or writer, i
! but to women who sail under different '
j nomenclatures in business and social
life, cays the St. Louis Globe Demo
It may be news to thousands of peo
ple to learn that there are women
prominent in St. Louis who earn their
living unknown to those with whom
they mingle in social intercourse. They
follow during the day regular business
vocations as sedulously as they chase
the butterfly of social pleasure when
lamps are lighted.
It seems hardly possible, but it is
true, that the women we smile at by
i night across the euchre party may give
us a stony business look from behind a
typewriter in a friend's office the next
morning. And the wonder doesn't
i come in that they should do both of
these things and still be in society, for
in America to make money honestly is
no disgrace, or the possession of it no
bar to social preferment, but it Is that
the young woman of the card table is
known in her social circle as Miss
Jones and in her business office as Miss
Smith, and that the threads of her so
cial and business life never get crossed
or tangled. •
All this goes to show just how small
a figure any one single individual or
set of individuals cuts in the complex
life of a big city.
This_w_oman with the alias is not an
isolated Instance. The writer, who
I has had experiences in both spheres of
I life, knows a dozen or more such
I women. It is his Intention to respect
their secret. They do not use this
double name as a cloak for wrong-do
ing, but the practice i» the outgrowth
in most Instances of false pride; in
others, it is a means of self-protection
to avoid embarrassments that dual sit
uations might entail. In nearly all the
cases known the employers are aware
of the double appellation of the em
ployes, and give it at least tacit ap- !
The innovation is not confined to any
one calling pursued by the new woman, j
I It is practiced by stenographers, book
i keepers, saleswomen and in a few in- I
j stances by teachers. Whether it will
| lead to evil remains for the future to
prove. That it has in it all the ele- j
ments that lead 'to eyfi cannot be de
There are probably now in St. Louis
thirty-five caees, on nearly all of which
it would be easy for the writer to place
his thumb. Bach case apparently would :
seem to justify the duplicity, if such it j
may be termed, in that the women with
the dual role are members of some of
the old aristocratic families of St. Louis
that became Impoverished. To shield
that name, so proudly known in the
social realms, from commericial taint,
the bearers of the same resort to the
two distinctive nomenclatures.
In several cases the Industrious pur
suers of a commercial avocation are
not necessarily compelled to seek em
ployment on account of impecunious- i
ness. The money earned need not go I
towards the eking out a living. It is to j
supply fine clothes that Miss Jones or
j Miss Smith sits over the typewriter
j desk, or stands behind 'the department
counter, the very existence of which !
she deprecates by night when social
duties claim her attention and pres
Occasionally the commercial thread
of her life winds itself noiselessly and
| unexpectedly into the silken weft of her
j social surroundings. Such a case hap
j pened not long ago, and it led to the j
j discovery of the dual existence of one j
of the handsomest girls of this city, |
who moves in excellent society. She i
had sought and found employment in j
one of the largest and most important
financial institutions of St. Louis. Her
talents and her beauty won for heri
many admirers. A gentleman, who is |
a director In this same institution, was
attracted by her many delightful qual
ities, and often dictated letters to her
on his visit to her place of business.
This young lady was always affable,
obliging and painstaking.
One evening this gentleman was in
vited to a social function in the West
End. Among the guests he noticed the
young lady to whom he had been In !
the habit of dfctating for the last few
months. She was beautifully attired,
and surrounded by attentive'admirers.
Desirous of showing his appreciation I
of her and to introduce her to his wife, |
who accompanied him, he approadhed
the beauty. Addressing her by the
name by which she was known to him,
he expressed his pleasure at the meet
The girl retreated a step or two^ and
| with a haugthty stare murmured words
| to the effect that she did not know '
The gentleman was puzzled for a
moment, but withdrew, feeling sure
i that he could not have been mistaken
j in the lady's identify and wondering
j what she meant by her strange con- !
In the course of the evening he was
introduced to her by her hostess, who
. was her especial friend.
"Miss Smith—Mr. Man."
The gentleman was surprised for the
! second time that evening. The name j
!bv which he knew the young lady ]
j stenographer was entirely different j
■ from the one by which this haughty !
! creature was introduced to him.
In a state of perplexity as to wheth- j
er he could have made'an error in the
girl's Identity, he fia&tened to her :
I place of employment 'the next day.
i There she sat as demure and affable
I as ever. A blush of ■ embarrassment,
however, mantled her cheeks.
Teh director of the financial lnstl-
I tution asked for an explanation and j
obtained it The lady told him she
chose a commercial name in order not
to confound her social existence with
that of her everyday biislness life. He
respected her confidence and said
Miss Smith of the social realm still
presides over the typewriter in the
financial Institution, although she is
a member of a well-to-do family and
not obliged to toil for a living:.
Another case that came under the
writer's observation not long ago Is
that of a young lady stenographer In
a large business concern of this city.
The manager of the concern to Whom
she applied for the vacant position
knew her personally. She Is directly
oonnected with at least three of the
wealthiest families of St. Louis.
The manager gladly appointed her to
the position she sought. When be
asked her name and address to be
placed on the payroll she gave a fic
titious name, and begged her employer
not to reveal her real one. He did as
requested and Mis 3 Smith of the down
town business office is Mlbs Jones of
the social gatherings given by her
But, alas! Miss Jones, alias Smith,
takes with her Into her business life
some of the prejudices of her social
distinction. In order to facilitate com
munication with various departments
of hJs business themanager arrang-. i
to have electric bells run from his
desk to the various offices under n'.s
charge. One of these bell 3 !ed to the
stenographer's private olTice. Tho
manager rang: It once, twice, three
times. Miss Typewriter did not come.
He went to her office and a*ked po
litely if she had heard the bell rkkff.
She acknowledged she had.
"Why did you not answer the call
by coming to my desk." asked, still
politely, her employer.

Sensational Speech Delivered by
Him at tlie Consul* London llun
LONDON, May 30.-The dinner given
tonight by the United States consuls in
the United Kingdom to Patrick A. Col
lins, the United States consul general
here, was a no-table gathering. Among
those present wore Ambassador Bay
ard and the entire 3taff of the embassy;
Joseph Pulitzer, of the Now York
World; Senator Hoar, of Massachu
setts; Hon. S. E. Morse, consul gen
eral at Paris, and Hon. Hannis Taylor,
United States minister to Spain. An
illuminated complimentary address was
presc-n-ted to Consul General Collins.
J. E. Neal, United States consul a:
Liverpool, presided. He proposed as
a toast, "The Guest of the Evening."
To this toast Gen. Collins made a iit
ting response. G. F. Parker, the Unit
ed States consul at Birmingham, pro
posed a toast In honor of "The Diplo
mats." To this toast Ambassador Bay
arrd and Minister Hannis Taylor re
plied. To the toast, "The Consular
Service." Consul General Morse
The speech of the evening was male
by Henry Watterson, of the Louisville
Courier-Journal, In responding to a
toast, "Memorial Day." It, in faot,
created a sensation. After several un
mistakable allusions to Ambassador
Bayard, Mr. Watterson began the rna'n
portion of his address by replying to
the statement made by T. P. O'Connor
in his paper, the Sun, at the time of
the Venezuelan trouble. In this state
ment, Mr. O'Connor asserted that the
South would'have to be reckoned with
In case the United States ventured on
a foreign war.
Mr. Watterson, in repelling the as
sertions made by Mr. O'Connor in this
connection, said that among those who
fought so well and valiantly during
the late unpleasantness, as well as
among their descendants, there was
but one feeling—a feeling of thank
fulness that God had laid the weight of
His hand upon the Sou-thorn Confed
eracy and preserved the life of the
American Union. Continuing, Mr.Wat
"I confess that I ami a jingo, but
from England I learned the lesson and
got the cry 'greatness and glory for
England.' It goes without saying, and
should need no self-seeking flunkey,
eager for social recognition, no reso
nant lip service, delighted to have an
audience, and rejoicing at the sound
of its own voice, to Impress the intelli
gent Englishman with the truth that
no intelligent American desires any
thing except the most constant and
cordial relations of friendship, but all
this talk of common institutions and
common language Is only common talk.
More than this, it is in some respects
misleading. Talk of a common lan
guage did not prevent the United States
from going to war with England on two
occasions. Talk of common Institu
tions, where conflicting interests are
Involved, 1b rather Imaginary than real.
We are of a common origin and of a
common blood, without doubt, and that
means that we are good fighters, who
may be counted each to stand by his
own. War would certainly be a dread
ful alternative, but there are yot great
er evils that may overwhelm mankind
than war, the obliteration of which
from human experience would make
the emasculation of the human species
mostly a question of time.
"It was the spirit of the Anglo-
Saxon race that placed England where
she is today. Her w&rriors are no
more forgotten in her history than are
her sages. To the same martial spirit
the American Union owes all that it is
today, and upon this idea the United
Stalfs must rely to maintain a position
among the nation 3 of the world. It is
certainly true that these two great
nations together occupy a position
strong enough to rule the destinies of
the human race, but they are not llk?ly
to egree upon terms until Englishmen
find as much to thrill them with a
feeling of glory and pride at the tomb
of Washington at Mount Vernon as the
Americans find to thrill them with a
similar feeling at the birthplace of
Shakespeare at Stratford-on-Avon."
"If, in recalling the heroic dead, in
whose memory we drink tonight, I take
leave to hoist our national bunting a
little higher than the Duke of York's
column; if I also trail it In pious hom

THE MEANEST MAN.
Before Cominltfimff Snl<'i<lt> He Itarnx
tin Saviugi of His Family.
; New York Journal.
The meanest rr.an has b^en discov
ered after death. He was Stephen
G-riecheir.er, of No. 135 Noble street,
Jersey City. The act which gave him
title to eruinence ir. meamii-fld was ex
traordinary. Before committing sui
; clde he drew out of the bank the
pavings of his wife and children,
amounting to $3,500, and burntd the
money to a«he#.
The money did not belong to Orlech
ciner. His wife and children had*
\ earned tt by their industry. Grieoh'-ln^r
had b*-en on bad terms with hip family
■ for some time before he ended his life,
I and his widow believes that, with a
desire to deprive them of as much as
possible, he burned the savings of her
self and children.
It was "Griechelner's v. ife who dis
covered his body lying on the floor '>f
the bedroom on the afternoon of the
day he killed himself.
UnderiKath the body was a $100 bill
and a l«-tter. The letter was written td
[ the suicide by Lawyer Isaac Golden
; horn, counsel for his wife, who had
! sought legal aid to compel her hus
: band to treat her more fairly concern
' ing money matters. On the envelope
Griecheiner had written, "Use this $100
to bury me."
The money fwtved by his wife and
children had been deposited In both
; his and their names. In 1 »■■••. :.. r lat;t
• $500 on deposit with the Greenville
j Building and Loan association was
: drawn out by Gri^cheiuer, No trace
1 of that or the money diawn from the
bank has been found among the sui
cide's effects. The books of the Prvov
■ ident Institution for Savings, of J< r-
I sey City, show that he drew out $3,000
■ some time ago. No record of his hay
! ing dei>osited the money in any other
I bank has been found.
The belief that he had destroyed the
' money was forced uixjn Mr*. Griech
; einer yesterday when she found the
! ashes in the stove. There had not been
a fire in the stove since the winter
j months, and since then Mrs. Griech
einer had cleaned it out.
Upon finding the little heap of charred
paper in the stove, Mrs. Griecheiner
sent for Police Captain Nugent, of the
Fifth precinct. The latter examined
the .ashes. He said last night tli.it
he believes them to be the remains
of the missing greenbacks, and today

FA.MOL& OLD BftGUSH -MILL.
Built From the Timbers of the Old
Chesapeake of Revolutionary
The Chesapeake was taken to Eng
land and in 1820 her timber was sold
to John Prior, a miller of Wickham
j Hants, sayß the Washington Pos-t. Mr.
Prior pulled down his old mill and
erected on the spot a new one from
the Chesapeake timbers, which he
found admirably adapted for the pur
j pose. The deck beams were thirty
j two feet long and eighteen inches
: square, of sound old Virginia oak, and
were placed, unaltered, horizontally in
his mill. The purlins of the deck
were about twelve feet long and served
without alterations for joists. Many of
the timbers still bear the marks of
the Shannon's grapeshot, and In some
places the balls are deeply embedded
in the pitch pine. The transformation
of a sanguinary warship into a peace
! ful and life-preserving flour mill more
; than fills that scriptural prophecy of
| the sword beaten Into a ploughshare
and a spear into a pruning houk.
Rev. Dr. Brighton visited this fam
; ous mill a few years ago, ajid gives
the following description of it: "Noth
ing phip-like or of the sea was dis
cernible from without the mill. A
handsome young Englishman of eight i
; and twenty years of age was coming
: forth to join his cricket club, and this j
i proved to be the owner of the 'Ches- j
! apeake mill.' A large cigar box, con- i
• structed from the polished pine of the ■
i old ship and bearing the inscription
| 'Chesapeake' in email brass nails, stood .
j upon the table. The beams were '
j marked in many places with grape- ;
! shot. The mill was merriiy going, but
as I stood in the midst of this peace- ,
ful scene I remembered that beyond all j
reasonable doubt on one of these plank s
, Lawrence fell in the reeking anguish !
of his mortal wounds; on another, if j
not the same, Watt's head was carried i
away by a shot, while near by the j
j young and brave Ludlow poured out i
| his life's blood. Thus 1 stood pon- j
i dering, and still the busy hum went j
on, wheat passing beneath the stones, I
flour pouring forth and the merry mill
ers passed around their kindly smile
and blithesome jests."
The Druggist's Varied Stock.
"A drug store of the present day." said
Mr. W. S. Thompson, "to supply ordinary
demands, must keep about lo.OUO articles on
hand. Every root and seed that has medi
cinal value, as well as the leal, flower and
bulb of the plant, has to be kept In stock.
So also must be kept the hupdreds of prep
arations made from them, ttrctureß, ex
tracts, fluid and solid, sirups, and detections
almost without number. Then come the
thousands of chemicals, acids, salts, active
principles, the various preparations, pills.
powders, all the proprietary medicines, and
hundrtds of arttclea known as sundries, per*
fumes, aud fancy articles."
