Captain J. O. Park, ono of the sturdiest
mariners that Fail the Fo.kS, couftxised to
the irrcatv.t feeling of relief on reaching
j:ort in wifety. It was not wind and
weather that bothered tho captain and
crew of tho Luzon during the long voyage.
It was tho possibility that tho vessel and
all on bourd miht Ik taken captive by
some -sr.eakin t-ianlsh privateer, ns
tho hkir.pcr put it. It wus this that luailo
tho lonu trip ono of the iuoS intense anx
iety to all alxMird tho clipper, for, whilo
the lAizon was hrittling with ntoruis tho
I'uited States hud begun and linished a
victorious war with Spain.
The Luzon, a vessel of 1,3.19 tons and
manned by crew cf 22, left Kahului, tho
port of the island of Maui, on tiio morn
ing of April 30 lust. War was actually in
progress then, and tho news of it pene
trated even to China, but it had not
reached Hawaii, llcnre Cup tain Park's
misgivings when tho clipper left iort.
"It was tho uncertainty that made tho
trip bot her some," said Captain I'ark. I
made up my mind, though, that we should
not be caught napping, and I had look
outs ported to watch for the least sign of
a sail from the moment we left Kahului.
For the first 50 days wo had light winds
and exasperating calms, and wo reached
latitude 40 degrees south before we had
anv kind of a decent wind. .
When wo reached th6 f t(t lj .Uantio,
I Ix-gan to look tor Stiauiarus In earnest.
All this time I was in doubt as to whether
anv war existed, out 1 took no cnances.
Every morning : man was sent to tho
masthead to scan the ocean for signs of
Spaniards, but off Platte wc ran Into one
of those, "pamperos," ns they call the sud
den storms, and for Ct hours we lay hove
to under reefed lower topsail.
"It was not until Aug. 4 that I heard of
tho war. Tlien wo spoke the German bark
Thalia, which signaled, 'War between tho
United States and Spain. ' It gavo us a
tort of shock to learn that what weexpect-
ed wa really so. but when I looked at tho
matter It was clear thnt there wns but one
thing to do keep on for New York.
"We caught the northeast trades in lati
tude 12 degrees north, and we were bowl
ing along under full sail and heading
about nor'-nor'west mi Aug. 20 when
Douglas, the first mate, came to mo and
announced solemnly thnt a Spanish priva
teer was after us at last. Thcro to tho
northwest, iure enough, was a big black
hulled steamer, with two funnels, cutting
through the water at 14 knots and appar
ently heading directly for us. As she came
nearer I saw that her decks were fairly
black with turn. I was prepared to sur
render, for the Luzon wasn't intking
more than six knots, when the stranger
veered more to the eastward and crossed
our bows half a julle ahead. She was
prnbablr a transport taking home tho de
feated troops, rut sneaian t snow any uag.
and neither did wo." ,
Captain I'ark Is a hard headixTajul pro
saic man. The men before the lua.-t ibsUc
tlkot he ha- kept back tbo most terrible
experiences of the fearful voyage. Jack Is
prone to see sights which escape the skip
per s vision or which that dignitary sup
presses for diplomatic reasons. Some of
the oldest seamen are willing to swear
that tho Luzon was several times chased
by Spanish cruisers, and after the destruc
tion of Montijo's fleet at Manila tho ghost
of the ill fated battleships haunted tho
American clipper, llugre fighting towers
and ugly cannons were depicted against
the horizon, and during storms the Luzon
tceced almost rnn down by ghostly cruis
ers. The booming of heavy guns was fre
quently heard over the boundless waters.
and the defenseless sailors of the Lmoit
suffered untold agonies. They explain
their miraculous escape as a part of the
good luck which followed the Americana
en sea throughout the War. . j
Some Etrictnres Vpon the Dress of Eng
lish Literary Men.
Novelists and playwrights in sample
quantities aro tho latest class to come
nnder the basilisk eye and measuring
tape of The Tailor aud Cutter. Theso
members of the sistir profession of jour
nalism, and perhaps even the severely
judged members of parliament who
have appealed in a like connection, may
be relieved to know that the novelists
and playwrights scarcely excel them as
glasses of fashion and molds of form.
13y way no doubt of sharpening his pen,
tho tailor critic begins with I. Zang
wilL whoso lounge suit "might have
belonged to any period during tho last
ten years," and had even reached tho
stage of the "shabby genteel. " How
ever, it is consoling to know that Jlr.
Zaugwill's literary success enables him
to wear a frock coat that nearly passes
muster, even though tho accompanying
trousers are too short.
Mr. Jerome, J. M. Carrie, Honry Ar
thur Joins aud Hall Caiuo might al
most bo called moderately well dresjed
in a uoustylish sort of way. At all events
they avoid tho shuddering solecism of
wearing a light coat and waistcoat with
dark trons?rs, attributed to Robert
Buchanan, or the mi-eil styles of W. S.
Gilbert. But the only two members of
the class who unreservedly enjoy tho
approval of our contemporary aro Sir
Walter Bvsnnt aud Clement Scott. Tho
former will no donbt be rejoiced to
learu that his clothes might causo him
to bo mistaken for "a prosperous city
merchant," while Mr. Scott might
"easily be mistaken for a prosperous
tradesman," says a tailor. The force of
flattery could surely no farther go.

A Dancing Feat.
A wonderful feat in dancing is re
corded from Berlin. At a recent ball a
prize of a gold ring was offered to tho
lady who waltzed tho longest without
'topping. Twelve couples competed.
They began waltzing at 12:30 a. m. and
it was 5 :4o a. in. before tho winner and
her partner stopped waltzing. By 2 :30
five couples dropped out, and at 5:13
another lady fainted. Two more couples
dropped out at 4:43, and at 4 :50 only
two couples remained on tho floor.
