Sometimes I see It still; I went

Her confidence in waiting love

AT SEA IX A YAWL
About fifty miles nbove Siilney, Australia,
an Engli.sh geutleiimn nameil Hone, a retired
civil ollicor, liml a fiuo place directly on tbo
sea. This was twenty-live years ajro, and tha
place mny have fmsscd through half a dozen
hands since, Tt was a villa or country seat
and farm combined. Howo was rich, but he
raised fruits, vtotables, hay and wool to sell,
nnd be was jirt owner in a brig which called
in at intervals to carry our stuff away. On
my first voyage in viitli this liriir tho gentle
man took a fancy to me and hired me to work
ashore, and 1 had lieen with him three years
when tlio distressing incident 1 am atiout to
relate came about.
Howe owned a pleasure yacht, but as he
feared the sea she was seldom tid. "When
she wout out I hud charge o( her and could
run bur very nicely with the help of a boy.
Ve also bad several rovi-boats, and there was
. scarcely a pleasant evening that I did not
row some of the family out. There was a
flue bay in front of the farm, and unless the
weather was very boisterous this water was
On the evening of Dec. 10, 1SC5, the brig
camo into the bay to loadwhh cargo, nnd
she anchored almost opjxwite the house. She
bad a lino new yuwl, in which the captiiiu
came ashore, nnd it appeared that Howe and
the women folks wero greatly taken with it.
Early next morning I was told to get this
yawl newly for a sail down the bay to a
small isl.'tnd, where a picnic dinner was to tie
eaten. The party, when ready to start, con
sisted of Howe, his wife, and an 18-year-old
daughter named Bessie, a miss of Vi named
Ransouie, who was on a visit, and little Ben
Howe, who was only 5 years oliL Two ludies
from the next farm above were to have gone
with us, but a merciful Trovidence detained
them at home. It was touch and go whether
we should make the trip without them, but
it was decided to go iu order not to disap
point tho young folks. 1 had iilled tho water
keg and taken a big lunch basket alioard,
and wheu we moved away there was just
breeze enough to till the sail and jog us
along about three miles an hour. A more
perfect morning I never saw, and the oldest
sailor could not have suspicioned a cbnnga.
W'c reached the island all right, remained
there until :.' o'clock p. m., and then started
for home. At nloiit 1 o'clock the sky hazed
up end the wind died almost away, and as
the title would begin to run out at 2 I became
somewhat unxious. My sailor experience
warned me that there would be a change of
wind and weather, and I was impatient to
get away. One triflo and another detained
us until the hour named. The people enjoyed
themselves immensely, and it was not for me
to say w hen we should start, although I did
throw out a hint Or two that I suspected a
cbauge of weather. All were in good spirits
when we finally got away, and as the yawl
was a good sailer sho crept nlong at a fair
sjieed until the wind suddenly fell as flat as
you pleased. We were then opposite the
ocean inlet, which was a mile broad, and we
began to drift out with tho tide. I had a
pair of ours iu tho lioat, and Mr. Howe took
one and t the other, nnd we pulled away to
cross the space. As ho was not a strone man.
and bad had no practice in rowiug, we made
no gain, and, to make matters worse, ho lost
bisoar overliourd and it was swept away.
We were three miles from the brig, and I
was getting ready to hoist a signal when the
sky darkonitl up with a sort of fog, shutting
us in, and the wind breezed up directly off
snore, uuu it not reen ror the strong tide I
could hnvo beat back into tho bay, even in
the fog, but I was soon coiutieHed to tell Mr.
Howe that wo were being drifted and driven
out to sea. 1 he news at once uu nerved him,
and his words and demeanor all the others
who began wailing and lamenting. Little
Bon was an exceptiou. lie was not only too
young to understand the daugcr, but he en
joyed the novelty of the situation. He crept
nacK to tne stern sheets, stood between my
knees to steady himself, nnd whispered:
'I slm'n't cry, Jack. Only I wish my dog
was here !"
After we hail driven over the bar, which
alvgays forms at every iulet, the breeze fresh
ened still moro, and I had to run off before
it, although I double reefed the sail. Had I
attempted to lieat back to tho coast line I
should have got amoug tho rocks and reefs
which lined it for miles and miles. There
was room in the inlet to beat up against the
tide, but it was now so dark that I could
hardly see tho bow of the bout, and I hnd no
compass anil could have run only by danger
ous guesswork. Iu heading dead out to sea I
expected nothing worse than to have to pass
the night on tho wuter. By morning, at
least, tho brig would know that we had met
with a piece of ill luck, nnd would stand out
to pick us up. And, too, tho wind might go
down with the sun or veer .to a favorable
quarter. Therefore, while Mr. Howe cursed
his foolishness In ever stooping foot into the
yawl, and while the women cowered and
wept, I was encouraged to hope that every
thing might turn out for tbo best.
At 5 o'clock by my watch, tho face of which
I could hardly see through the gloom, the
wind was blowing a topsail breeze and the
sea getting a nasty roll. Every one but my
self became seasick and fell to tho bottom of
the boat, and for the next three hours I heard
nothing but cries anil groans of distress. Tho
real darkness bad como now, and I conld not
see half the length of the boat. I hold her
steady as she went, and was gratified to find
that she mado good work of it and did not
have to lie watched as closely as a larger
boat might. It was about !) o'clock wbou Mr.
Howe roused np and crawled aft to me. He
was in despair, but calmer than before. I
made light of the adventure, predicting that
we would lie back at the farm before noon
next day, anil calling his attention to the
splendid behavior of the boat, and after a
little he seemed to have hopes. I suggested
that we have a bite to eat, and he got the
hamper or provisions. It contained wine,
cake, crncl ei-s. cheese and meats, and also
two randies, which hail been taken along to
explore a cave said to be located on the Isl
and, but which wo did not find. We got a
light, roused up the others, and after wo had
broken our fast all felt more cheerful.
Hail the women been of the common sort I
should have known what to say to brace them
up, but they were aristocrats, tender as
spruig Uowers, and a bit of hardship was cal
culated to upset 'em. I made an attempt to
belitt le the situation, nnd declared that it was
nothing but nn unpleasant adventure, and
after a bit they all got some courage and be
gan to be more hopeful What worried me
the most was the fact that tho wiud kept get
ting up stronger and stronger, and by 11
o'clock the yawl was humming through the
yeast like a man-of-war in a gale. I knew
we were going out into the Indian ocean at
the rate of fifteen miles an hour, and that If
the wind held as it was we'd be at least a hun
dred miles off the shore by sunrise. If it got
up much stronger I'd have to bring the yawl
about head on, no matter what the risk, for
she was uow rolling gunwale dowu and only
just keeping ulin.-ul of tho rollers. I got the
women folks to lie down in the bottom of the
boat, and then hud Mr. Howe pass me the
single oar, a piece of board which little Ben
Uad put in, a bit of two by four scantling I
Wtch was under a thwartand a water pall.
While stQl holding tba yawl dead before the
wind I tied these together for a drag, told
Mr. Howe to attach them to the boat
painter, and by midnight was ready to bring
her bead on.
It was time. The wind was now blowing
hall a gale, and there was danger that a lol
lowing sea might break aboard and fill us.
did not tell bim what I proposed to do, fear
ing ce would become nervous and rattle me,
but I quietly waited for the right moment.
sent him to the bow to throw Out the drae,
and when I hauled sheet and put the tiller
over I could feel my heart in my throat. She
hung for a moment, and every soul aboard
screamed out In terror, but the crisis passed,
andas she settled into a hollow she was head
to the gale, and the drag was holding her
thus. I then explained to the people that
nothing more could be done, and that they
might as well lie down. When they were
down 1 got out an old ou cloth and covered
them from the flying spray as much as possi
ble, and then took my seat amidships to use
the bailer. 1 did not rest over five minutes
at a time from midnight to daylight, and
when day finally broke and I looked about
me, my heart was like lead. The gale still
held off shore, with no sign that it might
change or abate, and the ocean around me
was a boiling caldron. The yawl was riding
like a cork, however, and the only water
taken in came from the wave crests broken
(iff and hurled at us by the wind. When the
people finally crawled out I hardly knew
thorn. All wore pale, hollow eyed and de
spairing, while Mr. Howe had a look uiion
his face which made me stare at him. It was
a look of mortal foar and desperation, and
realized that his miud was going. The poor
women didn't seem to notice it, having so
much trouble of their own, but little Ben
did, and he crept over to me and whispered.

"i icaso, oacic, out you won t let papa
touch me, will youf
1 began to call out in a cheerful voice that
the gale was irltating, and that we were all
right, but Howe only looked at me in a cun
ning, crafty way, as if bo meditated some
trick. I got out the provisions, roused up
the women, and forced them to sip the wine
and eat a little. 1 ho gentleman refused topar-
tako witn us, and by and by tho women
began to notice his strange actious. This
brought about a climax. I saw him looking
steadfastly at bis wife, and I carefully moved
nearer to her. One of the girls changed he
position further aft, fearing that a struggle
was about to take place, and I turned and
extended my hand to steady her. As I die
so Howe uttered a sort of scream, sprang
upon ana seizes nis wile, and, though
clutched her skirts, the fabric tore, aud both
went overlxmrd and out of sight in an in
stunt. Neither one rose to the surface, or, i
they did, they were far bevond reach. The
sudden and awful tragedy deeply affected us
all, and the girls Huug themselves dowu and
could not be roused up again until afternoon
Ben didu t realize it so deeply, but it was like
a dagger at my heart to see him sittiug with
closed eyes and white face, and his hps fram
ing the w..'-tls of the lxrd s prayer now and
ai uoon mo winu auu sea Derail to iro
down anil the sky to clear up. The gale hud
blown itself out, and I now considered it onl v
a question of time wheu we should sight the
coast, lhe better state of affairs brouirh
new life to the girls, and I was glad to have
tliem rouse up and show some signs of life.
A rough man like mo is no real comforter to
one in distress, but I did tho best I could, and
finally got them interested in the question of
saving themselves. By 5 o'clock I got in the
drag, shook one reef out of the sail, and stood
oil on a southwest tack, but before I had
made five miles the wind died out entirely
und we were left tumbling on the last.of the
sea. Night came on as mild and balmy as
you piease, iue ocean grew quiet, and every
one of us lay down and slept the w hole night
through without a break.
I was the lirt up,
anu iuc iiiiuiiio a saw too si.y i groaned in
despair. It portended a hot day uud a dead
culm, and both followed. Even before break
i fast 1 had to make a shii't to get some shelter
from the blazing sun, and when I came to
overhaul the provisions my face so be rayed
my reelings that the younger girl cried out:
"Oh! Jack, but what has happened nowf
I could have eaten and drank all we had
in five minutes. I hail not filled the water
keg to its capacity, ami even some that I did
put in bud leaked out by way of the Imii". 1

on allowance, and hardly more than a cruml.
at that, but they cheerfully accepted the sit
uation. I am not going into the details of
the next week. For seven successive days
we had dead culm or a contrary breeze,
which was of little use to help us beat up.
We spun the water aud provisions out for
four days, and then we had nothing left.
By resorting to those expedients known to
sailors we kept hunger and thirst iu abeyance
until the evening of the sixth day. Then the
three wailed and wept, and I took off my
cowhide shoes and cut one into strips for us
to chew at. there was some slight relief,
and the three only called out iu their troubled
sleep a few times. We had only the leather

the eighth, ulthough a favorable breeze was
blowing, and we all felt in better spirits,

the girls were burned and freckled and starved

way, and Ben was resting in my arms while

course of a trader corning up from New Zea

The ceremonies attendant upon the
presentation of "a beautiful thirty foot
American flag by the Sunday school ot
the First M. E. church occurred last
evening. The Sunday Bchool room of
the handsome new stcne edifice at the
corner of Fifth avenui: and Nineteenth
street contained a larije congregation,
the exercises opening ith the rendition
by the church choir of "All Hail the
Power of Jesus Name," after which the
pastor. Rev. G. W. Our, offered prayer.
and then read a portion of the Twentieth
Psalm. Beautiful Zion" was sung. The
flag, which had leen gracefully
festooned across the front of the
room was then pre tented by Mr.
J. F. Robinson, the superintendent
of the Sunday school, as an emblem if our
christian civilization. Mr. Gue in ac
cepting the banner spoke of it as an ex
pression of patriotism and devotion.
There should be a place r'or the Ameri
can flag in our churches us well as in our
hearts. There was something inexpres
sibly beautiful about it w lerever it ap
peared. It had a rifht in the churches as
an emblem of christian libertv, of the
protection that this country gives to all
unu ner oi religious devotion anil wor
ship, and the pastor hoped that there
would be no lines of tecta ianisra drawn
on the subject of reverence and
love for it: all creeds and all shades
of political faith should rally about it
as the standard of religious and polit
ical freedom, under whose beautiful
folds protection is guartnteed to all law
abiding people. It is tin standard of
everything that is sacred and pure and
glorious, the only flg, said Mr. Gue.that
has a right in this country. N other
fiitf, be continued, has a right on our
streets, and it properly belongs wherever
the lessons of Christianity are taught. It
belonged in ever? church, and the preach
er said be would net go iato a church
where the stars and stripes were denied
admission, and termed all opposition to
placing it oyer God's altar, sickly senti
mentalities. He spoke in condemnation
of a recent incident where an Iowa
church refused to admit within its portals
the body of a dead rnldier wrapped in the
stars and stripes. He thought every sol
dier should be covered ovir with the
American flig as a beautiful tribute, such
a-i would be imperishable long years
after flowers bad withered and the
body hsd turned to dust. He was
surprise that such a thing had
happened in low as tho one just
alluded to, but he would not have
wonder.d at it in southern Illinois. Pa
triotism was a part of Methoc ism and the
Methodist church through many of its
conferences bad already authorized the
placing of the American ling in its
churches. The central Illinois conference
ti which the Rock Island church belongs,
had been one of the first to ornament this
movement and the pastor proposed to
have another flag for the n :w church
when the time came to dedicate it to tie
worship of Almighty God. The flig
which bad been presented on this occa
sion, would, he said, have a cross placed
over it, as the American Aug is second
only as an emblem of christian love, to
the cross of Christ.
Mr. Gue spoke of an incident during
the recent teachers' institute here, where
a teacher from abroad asked if the "flig
craze had struck the schools of Rock la-
land yet, to which he said a Roman
Catholic teacher in our public schools
had replied sneeringly, "Oh, yei. U has."
Mr. Gue said be hoped the flag sould jrt
strike those two teachers In a manner
that would bring them to a realization of
their senses and their obligations to this
country, and that he proposed to follow
them both until the teacher was removed
from her position in the school of Rock
Island, and the instructor who bad asked
the question should be known at Normal
as be should he. ne again returned

emblem of Christian civilization.

acre and last year's area was about 120,-

about $4,000,000. This year's area is
about 110,000 acres, and the yield is a
little short of 50 per cent, accord, ng to
the returns made August 1, and bas prob

The Visit of the Roek Island Light I
veatlcatlna: Officials tm Hollar
What They Maw aad Haw They
The Moline Dispatch has the following
concerning the visit of the Rock Island
municipal committee to Moline, on its
light inspecting trip:
A party of Rock Ibland officials, in
eluding Mayor McConochie, City Clerk
Koehler and six of the aldermen, came to
Moline last evening to inspect Moline'
system of arc lights, they having deter
mined down there to abolish the cumbrous
and unserviceable towers, when they '
probably adopt a system simMar to ours
The delegation was met bv the fire, wate
and light committee (Aldermen Donahev
McReth and Fones), together with Mayor
Wessel, City Clerk Carlson, and Surveyor
faddocx, and after a abort and sociable
conference in the aldermanic chairs in the
city council room, the visitors were shown
through the electric light and pumping
station and also over the system.
The pleasant little conference in the
council chamber was jocularly referred to
as "the first consolidation meeting. At
this conference it was developed that
Rock Island now has a total of eighty arc
lights, for which she is paying f 7.200 a
year to the Brush people, or 90 a light.
Hbe also has in kdgewood Park twenty
two incandescent lamps, illuminated from
the electric lighting station of the Peo
pie's company in Moline.
The Moline city plant is also equipped
ror the lighting of eighty arc lamps, uav
ing four 20-light dynamos, of the United
States system, but she is crowding them
to furnish eighty-two lights. The cost
per light in Moline, including interest on
investment, wear and tear of machinery
ana every possible item of expense
is but 160 a year. Besides, the capacity
of the engine and boilers used issufBcien
for the running of extra dynamos, so that
were twenty, forty or sixty more lighl
used, the expense per lamp would be re
duced step by stp.
The visitors were decidedly pleased
with the system of lighting used here,
and were much impressed with the mil
ty of city ownership, which ws able to
make the above showing. They ap
lieared especially pleased with the neat
ness of the arrangement at tho pumping
station, which they declared to be the
finest they had yet visited.
After the inspecting bad been finished
the party partook of a nice lunch at the
Model dining room p-epared especially
for the occasion. It being after street
car hours by the time they were ready to
depart for Kock Island, they were fur
nished with a private conveyance.
