On the second night of the cruise of the San Francisco one of the amateur tars was on watch. The night was clear, and myriads of stars -twinkled in the sky, but there was no j moon. Suddenly the reserve sang out, ""Light ahoy!" "Where away?" asked -the officer of the deck. "Far, far - away," replied the would-be man-of-war's man. When the officer had re- - covered from the shock occasioned by - this unseamanlike answer he looked - over the rail in the direction indi cated by the reserve's finger, and then he had another fit. "What's the i matter with you?" growled the officer. "Can't you recognize the rising moon -when you see it?" "Moon! moon!" vtammered the embryo sea dog. "1 tteg your pardon, sir!" Then he aheuted, as if making amends for his -error, "Moon ahoy!" Feminine.

CO.. Ltd.. Battle Creek. Mich. O. 13," a long-lost diary in Washington's own hand, has at last come to light. This unique journal. I which runs' from October 1. 1789, to March 10, 1790, is occupied with the first political tour made by the first president. In a coach drawn by two horses Washington, ac companied by three friends and at tended by six servants, went through Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine and parts of NewHampshire. He thus sets the example of "swinging around the circle," a practice now common in the United States. "Exercised in my carriage in the forenoon," begins the diary. Then fol lows a list of the company "that dined with us today." Here is a, peep at his home life: "Am giving sitting to John Ramage, who Is drawing a miniature of me for Mrs. Washington." Ramage had a great vogue in the revolutionary era. He was fashion's petted and pampered artist. Born in Ireland, he early drift- Sir I - J K J v f "2 - -i 2 r r s jumss " . 4 mm m, hi-.

Coming to New York city, he painted the belles and beaux, was lionized in select circles. Ram age's scarlet coat must have caught Washington's eye. The artist wore a white silk waistcoat. black satin breeches, knee buckles, white silk stockings, silver shoe buckles, cocked hat, well powdered curls and on the street carried a gold- headed cane. As a fop of the day, when he talked he offered a gold snuff box; you took a pinch and vowed Ramage was a deuced good fellow. Sunday, 4th Went to St. Paul's in the fore noon. Monday, 5th Exercised on horseback be tween the hours of eight and eleven, and be- tween five and six in the afternoon on foot. "Had a conversation with Colonel Hamilton on the propriety of my making a tour through the eastern states during the recess of congress, to acquire knowledge of the face of the country, the growth of agriculture thereof." "And the temper and disposition of the people," adds Washington in his diary, "toward the new government who thought it a very desir able plan," he goes on. stringing out his sen tence, "and he advised It. accordingly." "Upon consulting Mr. Jay on my intended tour Into the eastern states, he highly approved It, but observed that a similar visit would be ex pected by those of the southern," writes the dis tinguished diarist. It may be added that Washington later made this trip "to the southern." He started in 1791. went 1,900 miles, was gone three months, and used the same span of horses throughout the Journey. Thursday, 15th Commenced my Journey about nine o'clock for Boston, and a tour through the eastern states. The chief justice, Mr. Jay, and the secretaries of the treasury and war depart ments, accompanied me some distance out of the city. About ten It began to rain and continued to do so until abont eleven, when we arrived at the house of Mr. Hoyatt. who keeps a tavern at Klngsbridge. where we. that la. Major Jackson. Mr. Lear and myself, with v six servants, which composed my retinue, dined. After dinner, through frequent light showers, we proceeded to the tavern of a Mrs. Haviland at Rye who keepa a very neat and decent inn. "" These words show Washington's formal style admirably. He continues: "The road, for the greater part of the way, was very rough and stoney, but the land, strong and well covered with grass and a luxuriant crop ot Indian corn Intermixed with pumpkins which were yet "ungathered In the. fields. We met four droves ot beef cattle for the New York market, about 30 in a drove, some of which were - very fine, also a large flock of sheep for the same place. We scarcely passed a farmhouse that did not abound ("abd" Washington writes It) In geese. Their cattle seemed to be of a good qual-' lty, their hogs large but rather long-legged. No dwelling house is seen without a' stone or brick chimney and rarely any without a shingled roof generally the sides are of shingles also. "The distance of this day's travel was 31 miles," writes Wash ington in Diary No. 13. He speaks of the stoney country, "Im mensely stoney," he calls it. "We find," he adds, "their crops of wheat and rye have been abundant though of the first they had sown rather sparingly on account of the destruction which had of late years been made in -that grain by what is called the Hessian fly." Friday, 16th Washington tells that the next day "noon halt" was - made at Norwalk, to feed the horses. "Part is very roug'h road," he goes on. "The superb land scape, however, which Is to be seen from the meeting house of the latter, is a rich rega- lia. We found all the farmers busily en gaged in gathering, grinding and express ing the juice of their, apples, the crop of which, they said, is rather above medioc rity. The average crop of wheat, they add, is about 15 bush els to the acre from their fallow land, " often 20, and from that to 25. Tue destructive evidences of the British cruelty are yet visible both in Norwlk and Fairfield, as there are chimneys of many burnt houses standing in them yet. The principal export from Norwalk Is horses and cattle, salted beef and pork, lumber and Indian corn to the West Indies, and in a small degree, flour and wheat." Saturday, 17th At sunrise we left Fairfield and breakfasted at Stratford, which Is ten miles beyond. . . . "There are two decent-looking churches in this place," says the diarist. . . . "There is a busy manufactory of duck and have lately turned out 400 bolts." He speaks of "stoney ground" and continues with remarks on wayside churches. Once in a while Washington records the beau ties of nature. Here is one of his longest notes: "But one of the prettiest things of this kind Is at Stamford, occasioned by cjHauning the water for their mills: it is nearly 100 yards In width, and the .water now being of the proper height, and the rays of the sun striking on It as we passed, had a pretty effect upon the. foaming wa- ter as it fell." N Here is the entry on New Haven: "The city of New-haven," which Washington writes with a hyphen and a Bmall "h," "occupies a good deal of ground, but Is thinly though regularly laid out and built. The number of souls in it is said to -be about 4,000. There Is an Episcopal church and three Congregational meeting houses, and a col lege, In which there are at this time about 120 students, under the auspices of Doctor Styles. The harbour of the place is not good for large vessels abt. 16 foot belong to it. The linen in dustry does not appear to be of so much impor tance as I had been led to believe. In a word, I could hear but little of it." . . . The following day, Sunday, the president went to the Episcopal church and In the afternoon to the Congregational meeting houses. He tells of a dinner at Brown's tavern with lieutenant gov ernor, mayor and speaker. "Drank tea at the mayor's (Mr. Sherman). On further . Inquiry I find that there has been abt--(the diarist leaves a blank) yards of coarse Unnen manufactured at this place since It was established and that a glass factory is on foot here for the manufacture of bottles. "The officers of the Continental Army called." Washington adds. "This state could, this year, with ease pay an additional- 100,000 tax. over what was paid last year." Monday. 19th The noted traveler records that bis coach was "under way at 6 a. m. and breakfast was taken 13 miles up the road, at 8:30." En route he sees extensive haystacks In the marsh -lands, sandy roads, rail fences now taking the place of stone. "At Walllngford we see the white mulberry growing, raised from the seed ' to feed the silkworm. We also saw samples of lustering, exceeding good, which had been manu factured from the cocoon raised In this town and silk thread, very fine. ; This, except for the weav ing, is the work of private families, without ln- " terference from other businesses, and Is likely to turn out a beneficial amusement." ' ' . C Tuesday. 20th The president vis ited the woolen mills at Weathersfield. He explains: "(It) seems "to be going on, with spirit Their broadcloths -are not of the first quality, as yet. but they are good, as are their coatings, cassimeres, serges and everlastings. Of the first, that, is, broadcloth, I or . dered a suit, to be sent to me at New York and cf the latter, a whole piece, to make breeches for my servants. All parts of this business are performed at the manufactory, except the spin ning this is done by the country people, who are paid by the cut. "Hartford is more compactly built than Middle town and contains more souls, the computed num ber of which amount to about double. The number of houses in, Middletown are said to be 50 or CO. These, reckoning eight to the house, would make 2,000 at least. The depth of water, which vessels can make to the last place, is about ten feet, and is as much as there is over Saybrook bar. i "At Middletown there is one Episcopal church and two Congregational churches. In v Hartford there is none of the first and two of the latter. Dined and drank tea at Colonel Wadsworth's, and about 7 o'clock received from and answered ad dress of the town of Hartford. "There Is a great equality in the people of this state.- Few or no opulent men and no poor, and great similitude in their buildings the general fashion of which is a chimney always of brick or stone and a door in the middle, with a staircase running up by the side of the latter, two flush sto ries, with a very good show of Bash and glass win dows the size generally is from 30 to 50 feet in length and from 20 to 30 in width exclusive of a back shed, which seems to be added as the family increases. The farms, by the contiguity of the houses, are small, not averaging more than 100 acres. They are worked chiefly by oxen, which have no other feed than hay, with a horse and sometimes two before them, both in plow and cart. In their light lands, and In their sleighs they work horses, but find them much, more expensive than oxen. Springfield Is on the east side of Con necticut river; before you come to which a large branch, called Agawam, is crossed by a bridge. It stands under the hill on the interval land, and has only one meeting house, 28 miles from Hart ford. "Set out at 7 and for the first eight miles, ride over an almost uninhabitable plain, much mixed with sand." Saturday, 24th Dressed by 7 and set out by 8 at 10 arrived at Cambridge, according to appoint ment.' But most of the militia, living a little out of town, were not in line till after 11. Washing ton's modeEt description of the civic honors fol lows : "We passed through the ' citizens classed in their different professions and under their own banners till we came to the state house from which across the street an arch was thrown, in front of which was this description: "To the Man Who Unites All Hearts," and on the other, "To Columbia's Favorite Son," and on the other side thereof, next the state house. In a panel decorated with a trophy composed of the arms of the United States of the commonwealth of Mas sachusetts and our French allies, crowned with a wreath of laurel, was this Inscription: "Boston Re lieved, March 17th, 1776." This arch was hand somely decorated and over the center of It a can opy was erected 20 feet high with the American eagle perched on the top. After passing through the arch and entering the state house at the south end, and ascending to the upper floor and return ing to a balcony at the north end, .three cheers were given by a vast concourse of people who by this time had assembled at the arch then fol lowed by an ode composed In honor of the presi dent and well sung by a band of selected singers after this three cheers followed by the different professions and mechanics, in the order they were drawn up, with their colors, through a lane of the people, which had thronged about the arch, under which they passed. ... The procession being over I was conducted to my lodgings at a Widow Ingersoll's (which is a very decent and good house) by the lieutenant governor, oouncft, accompanied by the vice president, where they took leave of me." Next day, being unday. Washington went to the Episcopal church in the morning and listened to Dr. Parker, and In the afternoon he visited the Congregational church. The diarist also Indulges that dignity with which the name of Washington is ever surrounded. The day before he expected the governor to wel come him at the public reception; had engaged to take dinner with him, but as Governor Hancock did not appear at the arch Washington did not care to dine with him. On Sunday the disconcerted magistrate came - to Washington's lodgings and 'pleaded Indisposi tion as an excuse for absence at the arch. Wash ington adds, "But as it was expected that he, the governor, expected to receive a visit from the president" and Washington In fine sarcasm under scores the word "receive" "he was resolved, at all hazards, to pay his compliments today," adds the president. The perplexed governor next sent a committee to Washington. "I Informed them, in explicit terms," records the president, "that I ' would not see the governor unless it was at my own lodgings." Governor Hancock's conduct was severely cen sured by public opinion. It was generally held that Inordinate dignity,' as chief .magistrate of Massa chusetts, and not bodily Illness, was the secret cause of his failure to call on the president. The rebuke of official pride administered by Washing ton, who refused to see Governor Hancock except at the president's lodgings, decided the question of superior dignity. for a Dime Why spend a dollar when lOo boys ttoa of CASGARBTS at any drugstore?
