Mid Ocean, May 20, 1900. ,
Americans must traverse a thousand
leagues of sea in order to roach the
Paris Exposition, for the Trans-
Alaskan Siberian Russian Route is not
open. But in spite of the distance the
water and the expense of it, it is safe
to say there will be three times as
many Americans at the Paris Exposi
tion as there were Europeans and Asi
atics together at the Chicago Exposi
tion.- Next to the English, we Ameri
cans are the greatest travelers in the
world and since we and the English
speak tho same language and spend
more money than all the rest of the
globe-pacers of the world, the language
spreads and spreads. It is far- more
spoken and printed and read than any
other two languages. It is no longer
necessary to know French, German!
Spanish or Italian in order to travel in
those countries, though it is of course
more convenient to do so and will add
greatly to the pleasure and education
of travel. Our language is spoken in
all the leading hotels and shops of
Europe. Even the French, so imper
vious to anything that has not origi
nated in Paris, have begun in the last
ten years to learn English and are now
able to cajole and cheat us in our ver-
These reflections came to me at sea
on my fourth trip to Europe and my
second trip to a Paris World's Fair.
In 1878, twenty-two years ago in this
month of May, I sailed on a steamer,
The Swevia, of this same Hamburg
American line. The Swevia was a boat
of about 3,000 tons. This boat is 12,
000 tons. It took us then twelve days
to cross; we expect now to make the
passage in less than seven days. These
improvements are suggestive of recent
progress in ship and engine building.
Ihave crossed in four ships of this line.
Ihave a preference for these German
manned boats. Their martinet disci
pline which is seen in. the crew and in
their attendants, whether on deck, in
cabin or in the dining saloon, affords a
sense of security and protection that
one does not feel with the lax, go-as
you please management of some other
lines. It may be that if we collide with
something and our boat should start in
a vertical bee-line for tne nearest land
at the bottom, these machine-like Ger
mans would imitate the French sailors
in the recent wreck of the Bourgogne,
jump in the boats themselves and beat
off the first-class ' passengers with the
oars. But men and sailors have .been
known in deadly peril to think of others
before themselves and I believe there
is something of this Berkinhead spirit
in the seaman who man the Hamburg
boats. The danger of sinking has
" been reduced until it is no longer possi
. ble except from collision or fire, and
the dangers from these sources have
/.been minified almost out of sight by the
selection of safe ocean routes and by
The three distinct achievements of
the twin-screw system, are increased
speed, regularity in the arrival of ves
sels, and, most important of all, a high/
degree of safety at sea. By this system
the vessel is divided into two parts en
tirely separated from each other by a
..strong steel wall or bulkhead, running
the whole length of the ship. Two
non-communicating parts having thus
been established each one is equipped'
with an engine shaft and screw, work
ing independently of and wholly un
affected by the movement of the other.
. The advantage gained by this principle
is obvious, for. a derangement of. the
engine on one side in noway affects the'
other which will continue its work with'
. but little loss of speed. . Each half of
the ship is further divided by trans
verse bulkheads into numerous water
tight compartments and a double bot
tom Insures from injury- from ' below.
.Another advantage of the twin-screw.
, Is the control held over the direction of
' .the ship. In case of accident to . the
.rudder the vessel can be accurately
; steered by driving one screw ahead and
reversing the other. We are half way
over to-day and there is no lack of sea
air. The ocean fronts everywhere.
No land breeze, and no mosquitoes.
These conditions cannot be had every
day . at Atlantic City. These boats
have* become so luxurious that many
' people sail merely for rest and recrea
. tlon. But the cost is about 320 per
day. My ticket was 8125, war revenue

but he has a physician and a valet "and

Dr. C. ■ H. Gibbons i Hu Moved from
Junean to Skagway.
Skagway, Alaska, May 27, 1900.
Last week we bade adieu to
Juneau and came northward a hundred
miles. The trip was delightful. All
the route was through scenery peculiar
to Alaska. , The channel is from one
half to six miles in width, and the
mountains and sea join so closely there
is not room for a clock shelf between.
The water is not blue, but black like
that down through which the Norse
man's ship reeled according to Long
fellow. , ' "
Glaciers are frequently in sight and
icebergs -are common. Haines is the
only town along the route and only
small boats stop there.
Skagway is a very different town
from Juneau. It is built on a plain
between two mountains and is about
half a mile wide and two miles long.
So flat is the land that the wharves, of
which there are four, are nearly half a
mile in length as short wharves could
not be reached by ships. The White
Pass and Yukon Railroad starts from
the eastern wharf and runs along the
base of the mountain to the upper end
of the valley, and then strikes into the
mountain. With a thoughtful mod
esty characteristic of railroads, it also
runs a lino the whole length of Broad
way and starts its passenger trains
from the foot of that street. The two
lines are about 500 feet apart. Three
years ago there was only one cabin in
Skagway. That summer the great
rush was about equally divided with
Dyea, five miles west. In 1898 a tram
way was built from Dyea over Chilcoot
Pass and' promised to take all travel
that way, but the advent of the W. P.
&~Y. R. R., changed the situation, and
to-day Dyea is nearly deserted and will
likely so remain.
Skagway is now a hustling town of
about 3000 population. It is regularly
laid out, has two daily papers, five
churches, electric plant and water
works. The railroad shops are located
here, U. S. and Canadian custom
houses, two companies of U. S. soldiers
(colored) and /is the gateway of the
Atlin, White Horse, Klondike and
Jack Wade districts, and probably a
better way to Nome than via. the
ocean route. Yesterday the money
was raised for ground for U. S. Bar
racks. A general spirit of "get there"
prevails in the place.;
The houses; are mostly one story.
There are a great many log cabins, and
the streets, yards, lots and alleys are
full of stumps and decayed logs with
here and there a tree. A popular style
of roofing is tarred paper. Many are
living in tents. Tho busy season is
just beginning as the ice has gone out
of the lakes and the rivers were report
ed open, to Dawson yesterday. The
railroad is nearly, completed to a point
just beyond White Horse Rapids where
steamers connect for Dawson. A tele
graph line runs from Skagway to
Dawson. On the' Queen's birthday an
excursion ran from here to Bennett
where a big celebration was held, one
feature of which was a baseball game
where Ska'gw.ayites worsted the Ben
netatians by a score of 16 to 14. .
Skagway is an Indian word meaning
"bad wind." The name is correct for
it uejariy always blows here, but I much
prefer it. to the. never ceasing Vain of

United BUtM Mineral Production.
The Engineering and Mining Journal
of June 9th will publish. the full tables
of mineral and metal production of the
United States in 1899 as prepared for
the Mineral Industry, Volume VIII.
This production, valued at the mines or
furnaces, amounted to 81,211,361,881,
the largest amount on record' for the
United States or any other country.
Deducting certain necessary duplica
tions,, the net value of the mineral pro
duction in 1899 was $1 , 118, 780, 830,
! against 1799,518,033 in 1898 showing an
increase last year of $319,262,797, or
39.9 per cent. This great amount came
partly from the increase in quantities
and partly from general advances in
values. The United States last year
was the greatest producer of coal, salt,
iron, copper, silver and lead \in the
world; also of many of the less import
ant metals and minerals.
The extent of our production is shown
by the figures, which include 252,115,387
short tons of coal, 13,400,735 long tons
of pig iron, 581,319,091 pounds of cop
per, 217,085 tons of lead, 129,675 tons of

Phillips, drowned June 5, 1900.
A light has gone from our presence,
There Is a grave where the violets blow,
But a radiance lingers with us.
Like the sun-set's after glow.
He went forth in the morning,
A noble, ambitious boy.
With hopes and plans for the future,
This life to improve and enjoy.
Christ Jesus called him early,
Come unto my fold dear Lamb,
And Charlie answered bravely,
Dear Lord "Just as I am."
He followed in His footsteps,
Though but* child he seemed,
There was great rejoicing in Heaven,*
For one more jewel redeemed.
Though we miss him and sigh for his footsteps,
While he sleeps beneath the ground,
We have this blessed assurance.
Only his "body" was drowned.
His spirit on wings of promise,
Has only gone before,
Though a light has gone from our presence.
It shines on the other shore.

In tho . "Life of Archbishop Benson"
by his sons occurs the entertaining
and extremely suggestive passage: ,

between the embassador of a foreign
power and my father. The former was
dining at Lambeth, a genial,' intelli

In the country?" with an air of genial
Inquiry, turning round in his chair.
"Yes, Indeed!" said my father.-. "We
have a beautiful church almost in the
park, which the village people all go
to." . .
"Yes," said the embassador medita
tively, "yes, I always go to church my
self In the country. It is a good thing
to show sympathy with religious feel
ing; it Is the one thing which combats
socialistic Ideas. I think you are very
wise, your grace, to go."
My father said that he felt as if he
and the embassador were the two au

In Action the Animal Nature Takes
Full Possession of Man. .
At home, In a progressive communi
ty, a man may be a coal heaver or a
bank clerk; but, whatever his station,
the environment of civilizing Influence
is strong upon him, and most of his
chances for - the j display of courage
come to the moral side of his nature.
But out in the open, with most of the
trammels cast off and the enemy In
front, | with J the ripple of the colors
about him and, more than all, the feel-
Ing that comes from companionship In
a common danger with many of his
fellows, , it Is the animal that gains su
premacy. And man, being by nature a
brave and fearless animal — the most
fearless of all the animal species—sim
ply remains true to his birthright and
goes through the ordeal In the natural
way. ■ > . • , ;• • ,
What. can be the deduction? There
Is only one.. It is that battle gallantry
and battle. brutality, springing as they,
both do from tho Eamc source, must
necessarily be allied. You cannot slip
the leash of a bloodhound and stop him
half way to his scent If any proof
were needed to make the, fact of in
herent bravery and— the other thing
certain It Is to be found in the marvel
ous change in face, manner and even
speech that comes over nearly every
man when he Is engaged In battle.
It may be urged that the excitement
of being under fire would be sufficient
reason for this callousness, but such an
explanation will not account for the
entire subversion of a man's whole life
training. The real reason is that at
such times It Is the animal nature that
takes full and* complete possession of
the human body.— Chicago Times-Her

Tie Public and Opera.
There Is a general opinion that the
stockholders support the opera, and
that the general public may consider
Itself highly privileged to be admitted
at all to the sacred precincts. As a
matter of fact, If the opera depended
for Its existence upon the support of
the stockholders, the doors of the
Metropolitan Opera House would never
be open. The bottom would drop out
of the whole enterprise. The parquet
and the galleries are the manager's
chief reliance. Opera Is not a social
function; It Is a public Institution, and

All persons, old and young, should
have their teeth examined once every
six months by a competent dentist.
Decay will be present and tartar form-

amination will reveal. Professional
service rendered In time means high
class work, less pain and great econo

will not be sensitive, the operation not
long and the filling lasting, because the
operator has more and better structure
to work on. He is enabled to make
the walls of the cavity thicker and
stronger and with slight danger of ex
posing the nerve, the dread and fear of
all when having teeth filled. Have
your teeth attended to In time. Do not

"Morris was the man who financed tne

THB VACANT CHAIR.
When the little family circle' is broken
and we sit sadly looking upon the vacant
chair, we think of the things that perhaps
we might have done to keep the loved one
with ns. Why not think of these things
now before it is too late ? la it a kind, lov-
ing and hard-working mother who is giving
all her strength and efforts for the family
well-being and happiness ? Is it a delicate
fragile sister; or a weak and ailing wife*
Try to give her the tender care she needs.
Do not let her fade away for want of ear-
nest effort to preserve and restore her.

Shelby Co.. in a thoughtful lrtter to Dr. R V
W«ree, of Buffalo, N. V;, says:- •• My mother had
an ovarian tumor which we thought would re-
sult In her death, but we commenced using your
'Favorite Prescription, 1 and before she had
taken three bottle* she began to improve- she is
Uving to-day and we have given your medicine
the credit. My mother was sixty-six years old
when the tumor commenced to grow; she is
seventy-six now and the tumor is all gone. She
had gotten awful large, and her limbs beean^o
swell before she began to use your .medicine I
value It so much that I am hardly ever out of
it in my house."
This is but one of many thousands of in-
stances in which this matchless " Prescrip-
tion" has restored such complete health
and purification to the distinctly feminine
organism as to dispel every possible trace
of abnormal or dangerous conditions with-
out resort to surgery or similar obnoxious
methods. For every form of female weak-
ness and disease it is the supreme specific
designed for this' one purpose and no other
by an educated skillful physician of ex-
traordinary experience in this particular
field of practice.
