THE TORPEDO BOAT
The Craft Soon to be Launched
TO BE TAKEN DOWN THE BTVEB.
On Its Way to Pensacola it Is Likely to be
Seen at Rock Island A Triumphal Jour
ney That W1U Attract Thousands or Peo
ple all All Along the River.
The Iowa iron works at Du
is preparing to launch a steel
craft, which will te the mate
to the Cushing. This is the first or
the new vessels bui!t in interior waters,
and its successful completion ought to
open tbe eyes of congressmen in the
Mississippi valley to the fact hat their
constituents and neighbors may have a
local as well as a. national interest in
naval construction and seaboard defense.
Of this little craft Secretary Tracy has
said that it "represents a new and import
ant step in the development of the re
sources of this country for purposes of
naval shipbuilding. Hitherto this work
has been done almost wholly cn the At
Atlantic and Pacific seaboards. Many
rolling mills and shops in the Interior,
especially in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Il
linois, have performed a share of tbe
work, but tbe ship building has been
done on the coast. The construction of a
torpedo boat on tbe upper Mississippi,
however, opens up great possibilities for
development in this direction in the heart
of the country." The launch of torpebo
boat No. 2 before the next session of con
gress will enforce this lesson.
The new boat is a little larger than the
Caching, but does not draw as much
water. The Cushing has a length on
load water line of 138 j feet, a breadth of
14 feet 10 inches, and a mean draught of
5 feet, giving her a displacement f 110
tons. Tbe new boat has a length of 150
feet. a breadth of 15J, and
a normal draught amidships of
4), with a displacement of 120 tons
dc HS8 1.8UU msx:mum
horse power, against the Cusbing's 1,720.
Each has twin screw, vertical quadrup'e
expansion engines. Eich carries three
torpedo tubes, those cf the Dubque boat
being 18-inch Whiteheads, and tbe latter
also has fcur 1-pound rapid fire guns
while the Cushing has three. The con
tract price of tbe hull and machinery of
the new boat is $113 500, while that of
the Cushing was 982,750.
According to tbe contract which was
awarded Sept. 16, 1891, torpedo boat
No. 2 should have been completed within
12 months, but unexpected hindrances
occurred, which will doubtless receive
liberal consideration. The policy of the
department is to encourage work in ths
shipyards of the interior.
When, therefore, tbe Dubuque torpedo
boat takes her course down the Missis
sippi to Pensacola, where she is to be de-
live red to the government, she should
not only have a triumphal, but in some
sense a missionary tour.
A PLEASANT AFFAIR.

The friends of Miss Jennie Christy, of
Des Moines, and Miss Geneveve Kimball

Madel lie Spelliteh,
Magnetism, beauty, cleverness, charm,
grace, power, wit. patnoa ana aancing.
Briefly stated, Carroll Johnson, the Irish
singing comedian, is tbe embodiment of
all these delightful qualities. Thie charm
ing comedian who stands without a pec r
in lhi3 line of work, appears here next
Thursday, Oct. 6, at the Burtis at Dav
enport, in a scenic production entitled,
'The Gossoon." The play has been
stamped with tbe seal of metropolitan
Fuccess, and is undoubtedly the most
originally clever of its kind, inasmuch as
it lacks all the venerable conventional
features that have characterized Irish
drama in the past.
Johnson is a handsome young man still
in bis thirties, and is the bappy possessor
of a nature as bright, and warm as a June
As a masterpiece or scenic marvel the
production is matchless.

Will F. Crawford, druggist at Des

of praise. One man . in particular who

Bex Nmtnre or bimu Nature f
The chief endowment of man, aa distin
guished from other animals, Is mind and
soul. The spirit born of these Is generally
believed to survive alone of man's organ
ism. Mind and soul are therefore the.
essentials of our being, upon which our
greatest efforts at cultivation Bhould be
expended. These are of common gender.
Men and women share equally the responsi
bility of developing tbe loftiest enduring
qualities of their spiritual nature. Can
this be done by perpetuating a system of
differentiated characters, as inhering in
sexes having a common destiny and under
going mutual preparation for it?
The most desirable and permanent quali
ties are those in which sex is indifferent.
Which should be more truthful, honorable,
faithful, generous man or woman? l
woman bound to any degree of politeness
not binding upon man? Courage is tra
ditionally a masculine virtue, gentleness,
feminine. It there a more inspiring sight
Chan that of a woman of high courage
whether in counteracting a husband's de
spondency or caring for a bereft family
or that of a man strong enough to be gen
tle? These qualities gather luster by
change of setting. A man is presumedly
aggressive, a commercial characteristic
more a fault than a virtue. Aggressive
ness has no Just rights, except upon ques
tions of morals, and there woman should
possess it equally with the man. "Strong"
and "weak" are terms traditionally char
acterizing men and women respectively,
born of physical contrast. On moral ques
tions the terms are misapplied. And men
tally, what woman aspires to weakness?
Self assertion to a domineering degree cer
tainly is as unlovely in man as in Toman.

A Man's Life Changed by a Fall.
" A case recorded by Plutarch would seem
to support the theory that during periods
of protracted insensibility the spirit of the
sleeper, freed from the body, wanders
away to realms and scenes not conceivable
by the ordinary senses. A man named
Thespius, he tells us, fell from a great
height and was picked up to all appear
ances dead. There were no external
wounds about him, but the physicians
were satisfied of the fact of the decease.
Arrangements were made for bis burial,
but on the third day after his fall be re
vived, much to the consternation of his
friends. In a short time it became quite
evident that the whole tenor of the man's
life had changed. Previously his charac
ter was that of a reprobate and a vicious
man, but after bis insensibility he ever fol
lowed after virtue. On betug asked the
teason of the change, Thespius related
that during his long sleep his spirit bad
been liberated from his body and had
soared away to a strange land, where it
had joined a whole company of other
His past life was disclosed to him in all
its hideousness, and the glorious capabili
ties which were before him were revealed
in such a manner as to make him ambi
tious of attaining them. Yankee Blade.
Days Chosen by Suicides.
Years ago the great apostle of pessimism
noticed that June was the favorite month
for marrying and committing suicide. As
he thought one was about as bad as the
other, it setms evident that he believes
one cause would account for the frequency
of both occurrences in "the month of
leaves and roses." Whether such is the
fact or not, it is certain that there are gen
erally more suicides in June than dur
ing any other month of the year, and few
of them are committed on rainy or what
are known as dark and unpleasant days.
The Fourth of July, Thanksgiving day.
Christmas and New Year's day, as well as
the evenings preceding them, are also
favorite times for committing suicide.
To these may be added the anniversary of
one s birth or marriage. Chicago Journal.

A Common Mistake
It is remarkable bow many people thfie
are who have that tired feeling who seem
to think it is of no importance or that
nothing need be done for it. Tbey would
not be bo carelete if they real zd bow
really serious tbe malady is. Bntihy
think or say -It will go off after a white."
We do not mean the legitimate weariness
which all experience after a bard day's
work, but that all gone, worn out feeling
which ia especially overpowering in the
morning when the body should be re
freshed and ready for work-
It a mistake to allow this condition to
continue, as tbe body may soon become
debilitated beyond recovery, or some ser
ious disease may gain a tenacious foot
bold. The rravtag of the system for as
sistance should be gratified by taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla, tbe great building up
medicine. It purifies and vitalizes the
blood, regulates tbe digestion and really
doer "make the weak strong." '
