According to the best knowledge and
belief of the navy and the country in !
general, the fleet is to make a visit to
the Philippine Islands after Sari Fran
cisco has had a chance to glimpse the
salmon hued funnels of the big ships.
The cruise to Asiatic-American waters
may require a matter of two years. It i
is advisable, therefore, that a fleet j

A. T. Stewart was a Scotch-Irishman,
born in Ireland and educated at
Dublin university. He was a classical
scholar," devoted to books in his early
Jife and with no idea of entering trade.
When he came to America, at the age
of twenty, in 1S23, he became a teacher
in New York. Two years later he re
turned to Ireland to claim a legacy of
about $5,000, and upon the advice of

At the outset Stewart made up his
mind as to his course in business. He
determined to be iierfectly houest, nev

to watch every no.-and corner of his
business and to add more customers
by pleasiug those he got It was his
boast in old age that iu all his career
he uever permitted a willful misrepre
