Bravery In Battle of the Famous
Author of "Don- Quijote.?
An incident of tbe battle of Lepan
to. which broke the power of the
Turks, in Europe, has an interest for
stude'ts of literature. "In the Mar
quesa galley" we quote from Com
mander Currey's "Sea Wolves In the
Mediterranean" "was lying in his
bed. sick of a fever, a young man
twenty-four years of age. a Spaniard
of Alcala de Henares, tbe son of hon-t
orable parents, we are told, although
these parents were poor. When this
young man heard that a battle was
imminent be rose from his bed and
demanded of his captain, Francisco
San Pedro, that he should be placed
In the post of greatest danger. 1h
captain and others, his friends, coun
seled him to remain in his bed.
Senores, replied the young man,
what would be said of Miguel de
Cervantes should he take this advice?
On every occasion up to this day on
which'hls enemies have offered battle
to his' majesty I have served like a
good soldier, and today I Intend to do
so in spite of this sickness and fever.'
He was given command of twelve sol
diers in a shallop and all day was to
be seen where the combat raged most
fiercely. He received two wounds In
the chest and another which cost him:
tbe loss of his left hand. To those!
to whom he proudly displayed them in
after years he was accustomed to say, ,
Wounds in the face or the chest ar
like stars which guide one through! :
honor to the skies.' Of him the chrpn-
icier says, 'He continued the rest. of
his life with 'honorable memory, of
this wonderful occurrence, and, .il
tbough he lost the use of his left
band, it added to the glory of bis
right. How glorious was that right
hand is known to all readers of 'El
Ingenloso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la
THEY LIKE PRISON LIFE
A Class of Persons In Japan .Who -Try
to Break Into Jail. '
In Japan there are people who make :
Bliani confessions in order to obtain a
period of the comparative warmth atid
comfort of a Japanese prison. The .
Japan Mali says: "The police slang
of the capital has words to describe
and distinguish these persons. "Meshi- -kul,
or the rice criminal, will steal
some small article from a shop front
In such a way as to be seen doing it
He then makes a bolt of It. pursued by
the master of the shop, or some faith
ful kozo, but presently allows himself
to be caught and br ided to the po
lice. He has to 'do time for his pre
tended theft, but his rice is secured
for a period, and when that period bas
elapsed he will allow himself to fro
caught again. g
"The unandon.' or 'eel bowl criminal,
is wilier than the one Just mentioned. '
He does not actually commit a crime,
such as will put him into the conTiet ,
side of the prison, but allows himself
to be found looking In suspicious
places, underneath the broad verandas
of a temple, or In the garden of a prl- j
vate house. He guts ?ato prison: all
right, but he secures tbe more generon
treatment of the house of detention,
which Is to the fare of the convict Ja j
