AT SEA IN A SAILBOAT
BATTLING FOR TWENTY-EIGHT DAYS
WITH ADVERSE WINDS.
rrt of a Ship's Crew I nilergo a Terrible
Experience After llclntj Wrecked In the
Pacific Ocean .V Urave Woman Was One
of the Sufferer.
Captain Peterson of the hark Lady
Lampsori, his wife anl live seamen ar
rived in Honolulu in an emaciated con
dition. They eaino in an open hoat Mily
IS feet Ions; and reported that th.v hail
been 2S days tossing about on the Pac iiie.
"While the oeoniants of the' frail craft
were not entirely without provision dur
ing their lotitf battle with the el.'mrntri,
the (U :--ts of bhort commons and hick :.
sleeii and shelter were jialpably ajniaiv.it.
Mrs. Peterson, who was clad in a thin
black gown, was worn nearly to a shad
ow, and her .si ron.-ifh failed her com
pletely as she was lifted from the boat
and taken into the Eajjle House.
The men were sunburned, leaden eyed
and listless. Their hi ads iroopeil. and it
was with iLiflioulty that thfy could be
got to speak, but l'.;pt. tin Pete rsen told
in a few words tl:.:t the Lady L:n;;p.-on
had been wrecked a:t. i!i,-hT i n a reef near
Palmyra i.-dand when 4 1 u.:y3 out from
Sydnej-, and the crew werj fotnrn.-lle:! 1

and spoke in a wh per, at the s:n:ie lime
begging that his wife be taken where she
could get nourisk-ueiii ami a little rest.
The Kanakas lent willing hands to
help th waifs of the ocean into hacks
and carriages, and they wire quickly
driven to where they could command at
tention. The lit th.' boat in which they
had .-journeyed over 1. Oil'.) miles became
an object of interest for hundreds of peo
ple. It was partly decked in with can
vas. j;r;d strips of the same material had
been sv'ieivd above the gunwale on ei
ther sid - to prevent li- r being swameel.
In the boa-t were a couple of nearly emp
ty water kegs and a small quantity of
biscuit and canned goods.

as if he bad sr.tl' red P .tU nienialiy and
Tihysieally. "The L ; ly Lampson," he
said, "was from t?ydncy. and we were
bound to this p-. rt with tons i f coal
for "Wilder cc Co. AVe 1. ft Sydney last
November and were -! t days out when
the vessel struck. Vt'e had had bad
weather near Pecjoe, having been in a
hurricane for 21 hours, but after that we
had tine northeast winds until wo got
near Palmyra island, when the weather
became dirty. It was ."i::?0 o'clock on the
morning of Jan. 10 when we struck. I
had not had an observation fur two days.
The night had been dark and stormy,
but the water was smooth then. I knew
I was to the east of the' island, and that
there was a sunken reef somewhere
around. I was on deck myself and had
two men on the lookout aloft. There is
a strong westerly current there, and I
guess we were going about five knots an
hour with all sails set.
'Five minutes after she struck she be
gan to break up, and I ordered the boats
out. AVe lowered the two boats. I took
charge of one. and First Mate Harry Mil
ler to:k the oilier. In my boat there
were, besides my wife and myself, Sec
ond Mate C. Drown and Seaman AV.

a Norwegian sailor. The mate's boat
contained u (iormaii saiior named Sny
der Oscar Magnersen. a Swede; J. ,Tor
gensen, a German, and a seaman named
"AVe started for Palmyra island in
company about 7 in the morning, having
only five gallons of water for the two
boats. The island is only 40 miles from
the reef, but the current and tide were
so strong that we were trying for nine
days to make headway against them, but
couldn't. AVe drifted to the westward,
so I resolved to put back to the bark.
AVe suffered greatly through want of
water, and we had barely enough to
moisten our tongues, which were swollen
"AA'e found the bark settling down and
the water washing over her, so we got
aboard quickly and put some canned
goods, biscuit and water into the boats.
AAe rigged the boats with canvas and
then started again for Palmyra island.
AVe tried for two days to make headway,
but the heavy swell and wind baflied us.
Thinking I would lose sight of the mate's
boat. I told him to steer for Honolulu,
and I steered for here myself. AVe lost
sight of the other boat and have had
heavy gales ever since. I have only had
an hour's sleep at a time during the day,
and have never laid down. At nighttime
the spray came over, wetting us all to
the skin, and in the day we dried our
clothes in the sun, if there was any. The
men have been quiet and uncomplaining,
even though on short allowance of food
and water, and, thank goodness, we lost
nobody from our boat. It was a terrible
experience, though, the worst I have met
with during 14 years of seafaring.
"After we passed the island of Maui
we struck a storm, and the boat half
filled with water. AVe thought then it
was all over after passing through so
many other dangers, but we managed to
bail her out and keep her right. The
first vessel we saw since we struck, 23
days ago, was a steam schooner off Dia
mond head this morning. - I hope the
mate's boat is safe, and if he steered to
the eastward I think they are all right."
The Lady Lampson was well known
in San Francisco. She belonged to J. J.
Moore. Captain Peterson owned a quar
ter share in her and had his interest in
terest insured for $10,000 in the Fire
man's Insurance company. He reckons
that he has lost !j-J,000 in instruments,
furniture, charts and short insurance.

A HUMAN NIGHTMARE.
Kiferlence of a Drnmmer With, a Woman
Who Was Mistaken For a l'rcok.
"nave you ever had a nightmare in
which some fearful danger threatened
you and yon couldn't move or get out of
the way?"' asked Hermann Solomon of a
crowd of peripatetic story tellers at the
"Several years ago I had several of the
nocturnal visitors every night for a week
and grew very weary of them, for in
spite of my determination noj to let them
bully mo out of my equaniJcy I would
nearly expire every night and awake with,
cold perspiration breaking out all over
me. Toward the last of that interesting
week I stopped with a landlord in north
ern Arkansas and resolved as I went to
sleep that come what would I would
positively refuse to give in in the least to
"Some time past midnight the usual
3eare came. This time it was a tall and
angular voinan in white, with a long
butchi rkniie. Mentally, I was congratu
lating myself that at last I was learning
to overcome the foolish fears of night
mares and wondering how it would pass
off. I saw the demoniac grin as she
flourished the knife in front of my face
almost without a tremor, and when she
laughed a wild, unearthly laugh I gave
a start and found it all real and that I
was actually awake.
"Scared? That word can't express it.
I dropped on the other side of the bed as
she made a flash at me, and as she ran
around the In-d I crawled under, reached
the door and went down the steps about
three at a time ahead of her. 13y the
time we reached 'the big road' I think I
had gained several feet, as she had more
clothing to interfere with her progress
than I had just then. I had imagined
that a man r-ally scared couldn't move.
Well, I will give any odds desired on
the proposition that I moved down that
road, and 1 don't think I would need any
corroborative testimony to convince any
one who saw me that I was seared.
