TRUE SECRET OF THE DISCOVERY
OF SI Ft JOHN FRANKLIN'S FATE.
A Mystery Belated by the Vicar of Bolj
Triullj, Liverpool Capt. McCliutock'a
Chart Arimliuiiona Matin by Capt. Ken
nedy, Whose Kxpeditlon Failed.
The sa t story of Kir John Franklin and
his brave comrades of the Erebus and Ter
ror lias bn often told, but it has been re
served for the Rev. J. Hury Skewos, vicar
of Holy Trinity, Liverpool, to recount the
"true sen ret of the discovery of the great
expkirer'i fate" after forty years' silence.
This he hs done in a little book, "Sir John
Franklin " etc. Tho "secret" came, it seems,
in tho shape of a secial "revelation," and a
number of tho more important persons con
cerned ai e still alive.
WKITTKN ON THK WALL.
Every uie knows how the expeditious sent
out by tie government to search for Franklin
failed to find any traces of the explorer or his
party. Hope was almost given up when
away in i he north of Ireland a very strange
oecurren. took place. In May, 1SJ9, a child
of 4, who pet name, it should be stated, was
"Weasey," died at Londonderry of gastric
fever. She was the daughter of Capt. Cop
pin, a hoard of trade surveyor there. For
months afterward the dead child, in the
laiuviiue of her brothers and sisters, was
"always aliout." They were continually
"seeing" her in the honse.
One nu.ht, when going to bed, one of the
children, aged seven, told her aunt that there
was written on tho wall tho words, "Mr.
Mackay U dead." Mr. Mackay was a lianker
in the town and weil known to the children,
and next morning it was found that he had
died very suddenly about the time that the
writing appere.L The great mystery .of
Franklin s fate was at this time agitating the
country, iiml soon afterward it occurred to
the aunt to get the child to question "Wea
sey,' who as usual was present, relative to
the whei eaUiuts of Sir John and how he
could Ih reached
This wis done, and "WeaseyV apparition
at once vanished. Iniinliat'ly afterward
"there npeared on tho floor a complete
Arctic sc. -ne, showing two ships surrounded
with ice and almost covered with snow, in
cluding a channel that led to the ships."
This seen'!, in the form of a chart, the child,
presumal ly on tho suggestion of her aunt, at
once drew. Then, in connection with this
represent itiou, nnd in answer to further
questions there npeared on the opiosite
wall, in large round letters, the following:
"Erebus and Terror, Sir John Fi uuklui, Lan
caster si uud. Prince Regent inlet. Point
Victory, Victoria channel."
No me-isage from the unseen world could
have been plainer or more definite than this,
but Capt. Collin, the father of tho child, on
hearing lie fart.s was at tirst incredulous.
The child, however, stuck to her story so
(icsisteiiUv that he thought it his duty to
comniiini -ate with Lady Franklin, whose
first private expedition with the Prince Al
bert was shortly to sail from Aberdeen. Her
ladyship was naturally much interested in
the re vpli t ion and soon became couvinced of
its truth. The voyage of the Prince Albert
was, however, fruitless. A second time the
vessel sailed, uuder the command of Ken
nedy, wh had been made fully acquainted
with the Londonderry vision aud had got his
instructK ns accordingly. These, however,
lie did no'., owing to various circumstances,
carry out, and ho, too, failed. Dr. Rae, who
followed, was rather more successful, but it
was not until the voyage of the Fox that
complete success was achieved.
F01.LOWINU TUE "REVELATION."
TheFot was iu charge of Capt McClin
tock. Lit ut. Hohson lieing second In com
mand, nn J sailed as late as 1S57. Capt. Mc
CliutockV instructionswere definite; he was
to follow the route defined iu tho "revela
tion." T make a long story short, this was
done, aud the result was marvelous. "Point
Victory" was duly reached; a dilapidated
cairn there was searched, and among some
loose stores Hot .son discovered a thin tin
cylinder containing the onlv written record
resiiectiiu; the crews of the Erebus and Ter
ror that was ever found. The record told
when and where the vessels were deserted,
announce 1 tho death of Sir John Franklin,
and was signed by tho senior surviving offi
cers. Litut. Hobson continued his journey
A short distance from Point Victory he
discovered a Ixiat which had tielongod to one
of the lest ships, with two skeletons, guns
and other articles. Hobson, through illness,
bad then to discontinue his explorations, but
McClintock came upon huto, the tumat of
which were in possession of many things be
longing to the ill fated expedition, including
pieces of plate on which were the crests or
initials of Sir John and three of biaoffloam
AlcClintock meted England safely. In due
time rewtrds and honors were heaped upon
him and 1 is crew, their success, according to
our author, being entirely due to the fidelity
with whit h they followed the route indicated
by the Londonderry vision.
It only remains to bo stated that the book
to some e::tent supplies evidence in confirma
tion of th i story . Capt. Kennedy admitted
that had he followed the "revelation" instruc
tions he ould have reaped the honors which
fell to Sir L. McClintock. Sir R. Murchison
wrote that "much more satisfactory results
would have been obtained had Kennedy fol
lowed the course which Lady Franklin was
anxious that he should follow." Capt Cof
fin's child -en still survive, Jriid "to many who
may seriously question their liona fides infor
mation oi' a most satisfying nature will be
afforded I y the author." This, it seems, also
applies to important original documents, for
whose publication up to the present permis
sion has n it been obtained. There are, how
ever, several weak points in the narrative.
Why, for instance, should the "secret" have
been kept a secret so long? The best of mem
ories is a p. to get dimmed in forty years.

The Nuod Lunch.
Perhaps thedoctor is right who says that
a great Krtion of the sickness iu this coun
try is earned by the unpleasant hubit of eat
ing too rt pidly. It is interesting to watch
the average citizen when be goes into a res
taurant ft r his dinner. He doesn't seem to
regard the meal with any degree of fondness,
but acts a though the eating of it is one of
those disagreeable duties which confront a
man at every step on the highway of life.
He attack tlie meal savagely, and you can
hear his kuife and fork rattling a furlong
away. H t shovels the food into his mouth
as a hired man shovels com into a shelling
machine, mid swallows it without chewing it
He pours down a lot of ice water when the
meat is co tisumed, with a frantic endeavor to
make it at indigestible as possible, and when
the last sal rites are over he rushes to the
cashier's desk and settles with an expression
of relief i tantling his radiant countenance
like a rainbow after a storm. The stern
physician says that people should eat very
lowly, aiid while away the time between
bites by o mversation about the weather, th
crops or a ly other cheerful subject Iu this
way the d ys of their years of their pilgrim
age may l many. Writer Unknown.

efflcientlj, tones the stomach and other
organs, rsmoves the faint feeling, creates
a good appetite, cures headache, and
refreses the burdened mind. Give
Hood's f'rsaparilla a fair trial. It will

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country
Bear what he says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the eflect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Trier, to
try a preparation known as 3 B. or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part. I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
toman. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have bad
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago. at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I bad only
eaten six mehls, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish my meals anil
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
B. B. , cured me in midwinter, at the
very time my siifferin&s and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its suierior merits.
