SERVANTS' MANY EXCUSES.
One Woman Who Warn Clever
ISnwtlK'h to Cia-cuinvent Tlirm.
We have heard the story of the Can?
adian mistress ?ho, with seveu ser?
vants In her house, was obliged to go
to the garden and pick berries for tha
Ciliie. ISich of the servants declined
fjhe ttu.k with tho stereotyped excuse,
"It ain't my piac? to pick berries." Ol d,
in his "History of Cleveland," relates
an anecdote of Margaret Whtirton.who,
while accepting her servants' excuse,
fct made them do h<?r will.
In one of her Vieris to Scarborough,
Mrs. Wharton, with her usual economy,
bad a family pie for dinner, which she
directed the lootroan to convey to the
bake bouse. This the man declined t.o
lo. aa not belonging to his place, or
rather its derogatory to his conse?
quence. Tue lady then moved the ques?
tion to the coachman, but found a still
monger objection.
To save lue pride of both, Mrs.Whar
tott resolved to uke the pie Lo the siiop
Sierself. Site ordered nor- man to har?
ness and bring out the horses, and the
other to mount and ride behind, and
thus the errand was done with all
honor ami ceremony. Then in due time
the coachman was ordered to put to a
second lime, and the footman to mount
behind, and Mrs. Wharton brought
bade Uiu pie in the s-itiiu dignified
Btate.

CRUISER VESUVIUS.
HER VALUE HAS BEEN CONCLUSIVELY
PrlOVEN.
Naval Ofllcars Who I .o oo-rly lloubtud Now
Her Slr<.uu.-?t Advocnt.'-.?PkmU of Her
Kftlclcncy tlivmi at svaiiliaipi?>ho May
Throw Utiucoltoti at llavunu'. .Ilorro.
Some of those who have not believed
in the valueef the dynamite cruiser Ve?
suvius a., an instrument of naval war?
fare are now among her strogest ad?
vocates since her wonderfully effective
work against the defenses of Santiago.
Admiral Sampson reported that the
ship had thrown charges ol gttncolton
ashore with the most satisfactory re?
sults and that her vaitte in operating
against fortifications has been of the
highest cht'racier.
For years, ever since the completion
of the vessel, in fact., lite navy has been
divided us to her usefulness in war
time, ami until some practical experi?
ments could be meide it was argued
that it would be foolish to build more
ships of her type. She was one of the
early ships cotuplet id for the navy and
the tastes! in the .service tor many
years, but she was always regarded as
it failure except b> a few olticers who
had tested her an . had the amplest
confidence tlttil sie would do every?
thing site was designed for.
Her one great de eel is her inability
to turn rapidly, bet tIiis is owing to
her cxticmn length ami narruw beam, j
It is dillictiit for her to turn in a radius
of less than IOU yerds, although pro?
vided with twin screws. Naval ofiicers
have pointed out that another defect
is the fact that h?r three tabes are
stationary and tan be trained only by
the liable:-. To train them therefore
is sometimes a difficult matter in heavy
seaway. Down o.T the Cuban coast,
though, the reports show that she has
had apparently liiti" trouble in hitting
lo r tatgets and bucking out of range in
short order.
No opportunity has been afforded
until lite present, her advocates say,
to prove the real efficiency of the ship,
and the trials t.ha' have taken place
heretofore were of such a nature as 10
prove nothing except the accuracy of
her fire. Several years ago an extend;
al series of trials was conducted oft
Port lloy.nl and elaborate reports were
made to the navy department, and tho
?ohcltision i cached was that the Vesu?
vius was not of piuch value to the
navy. Now all officers arc,willing to
:idniii thai she is a wonderfuly ef?
ficient iioai for certain classes of work
and that her tubes !'.ave done more de?
struction lo the ou'er harbor of San?
tiago then a bombardment by the en?
tire licet could have accomplished In a
day. While it is ar. expensive process
of it:li:c;itig destruction, the experts
agree that ii really costs far less than
liring many broadsides of heavy shells
against fortillcatior.s-v - "
The tubes of the Vesuvius are of 15
incises calibre, but she has never yet
fired the full charge I hey are capable of
throwing. Sub-calibre charges of 5, 8,
and 10-inch proj?ctiles, containing
from -'in to 500 pounds of guneollon,
were used in the attacks on Santiago's
defenses, and it is not regarded a~s.
probable that higher charges will be
hereafter used by the ship.
Captain Sigsbee if one of the strong?
est believers in tho Vesuvius in the
navy next to I ?er tenant-Commander
Sealon Schnieder, who commanded her
tor several years. One of the first
mcssagi s sc u to the navy department
after the Maine disaster was a request
thai the Vesuvius lie al once ordered to
Havana, if there was to be any trou?
ble with Spain it was though! the Ve?
suvius could do mure effective wank
by tossing feveral projectiles of gun
cotton initi the city than larger ves?
sels could ia a bombardment. The Ve?
suvius was at once prepared for ser?
vice.

Jnitnmesc Imitation.
Thr. Japanese are almost universally
condemned by writers for the imita?
tion practiced by them of late years
of western literature, art, science and
invention. Ami yet this imitation
seems natural and right. Imagine, if
possible, the nation of Japan leaping
across the civilization of hundreds of
years-in half a century. Think of hei
emerging from the darkness of the
middle ages and .standing suddenly
forth in the light of Hie nineteenth
century. Would it not have been
worse than madness for iier to have
st. d I i s .-aw f.n :i,3'iUon is better
titan ours, yet we will not imitate it.
We will retain our originality, and per?
haps in ages to rome we siutli reach
the enlightened state now enjoyed by
the rest of the world."
But fortunately tho Japanese did not
say tliis, hut gave themselves up to the
acquisition of the wonderful stores of
knowledge opened to thorn.

Thursday, June 30.
The voyage was most favorable
General Anderson's soldiers suffered
much from seasickness. The sail
tus. of Dewey's squadron enthusiasti?
cally welcomed them, and the soldiers
?etuir.ed cheer for cheer.
On tiic v. ay the expedition stopped
long enough to capture Guajao. the
largest of tue I.adrone Islands, and tc
take possession, in the name of the
United Stales, of the group of La
drones. 'the Stars and Stripes now
floats over San Luis Dapra, the town
on the coast of Guajan, where a small
part of the United States force landed.
Tiie Spanish officers on the islands
so remotely""situated in the Pacific did
not know that war was on betweeu
their mother country and the United
States. Complications that greatly
amused the Americans resulted. Bui
Captain Henry Glass, of the Charles?
ton, straightened things out by taking
Lieutenant Colonel Marena. governor
of tin- Lad: ones, two military officers,
fifty-four soio'ers and several civil of
ticets and natives to Manila.
When the flag was raiser* at San
Luis, tiie native soldiers, cheering lust?
ily, tore off the Spanish uniforms tbey
wore and stripped them of buttons,
which they gave to the men who bad
liberated I hem.
'I he ships left Honolulu under sealed
orders, which Captain Glass opened
one day out. They directed him to
capture ibe Ladrones. so the ship's
course was shaped for Guajan, aud tbey
arrived off San Luis Oupra early on
June 21.
The Charleston took position in easy
rnn.ee of Port Santa Cruz, which is sup?
posed to guard the entrance to San
Luis, and on which the Spanish iiag
was flying. The Charleston fired a
dozen blank shots at the rather dilapi?
dated fortress.. The Spanish flag still
Hew; there was absolutely no response
from the fort. So Captain Glass con?
cluded to await developments.
In Lite afternoon two Spanish offi?
cers in full uniform, were towed out to
the Charleston. Ami very polite they
were.
"Governor Marina presents his com?
pliments:" they said to Captain Glass,
uowing and scraping. "He thanks you
tor your salute. He is very sorry he
could mu return it. but, unfortunately,
we have- no powder."
A native 1iiit.
The situation was explained to the'-a,
and, very gently, they were mad" pris?
oners. Never before were men so
astonished. Then Captain Glass sent
a message to Governor Marina, order?
ing him to come aboard the Charleston.
The governor, equally ignorant that
war was going on, sent back a cour?
teous message.
"Governor Marina presents his com?
pliments aud regrets lie cannot accept
the polile invitation to visit the
Charleston. But the laws of Spain for?
bid Iii in to set fool off the islands foi
an instant. He will be very glad to
so > Captain Glass at the governor's
t oaldence at lo a. ui. to-morrow."

Captain Gl tss's ultimatum to the
tstotiiflied ^.aiiua?that he must sur
..iiidnr in U.df an astir or the town
would bo ?emb-rued. As soon as the
governor recovered he promptly sur?
rendered.
In the afternoon a larger force was
landed, the few Spanish soldiers were
disarmed a .<! made prisoners, the
United Staus marines and bluejackets
forme,- freund the staff from which
Spain's flag had been hauled down,
and forir.allj the United Slates took
possession of the islands.
The simple ceremony was made more
impressive by the joy of the natives
who thus unexpectedly found them?

THE NAVY'S MINIATURE SEA.
' A Great Tank In Which Model? of New
Warship* Are to lie Tented.
I Close to the waterfront at the gun
factory in Washington the first experi?
mental tank for the navy is beingrapid
. ly completed, and by tiie time bidders
, have submitted proposals for the. con?
struction of the-big battleships and
.monitors recently called it will be
: ready to test miniature models of par
afllne and wax representing the pro?
posed new additions to the country's
lighting strength on the sea. There is
tio tank in the world equal to this one
in size, equipment, -and completeness
of its electrical devices. IL is longer
? and wider than the best owned by for
I cign countries, and covers an area of
water fully capable of floating some of
I the largest torpedo boats. It looks like
an Immense natatorium, and, in fact,
would make an excellent onev
The plan of having a lug tank,
housed over, with trick Sides and con?
crete bottom, In which liLt'.e models of
all new ships to be built for the navy
should be tested,- was suggested some
years ago by Chief Constructor Hieu
born, who had noted the excellent re?
sults obtained in Great Britain and
mranee oy testing oesigus or new snips i
before their actual Ikies were decided
upon by construct'-jr vr,;Ji rcoie",.-? anc
having them towed through the water I
at given rates of spocd. The resistance
offered by the models to the water j
formed a basis on which close esti?
mates could be made of the probable
speed of the actual ships when in ser?
vice, and faults in designs could be
readily detected and corrected before
the vessels were completed. Two
years ago congress appropriated JT.0O,
000 with which to build a tanlt. and
under direction of Constructor Taylor
the work has so advanced that it will
be available in a few weeks.
When a new vessel is to be built, a
model is made of ,t about eight feet
long, care being observed to have the
lines accurately moulded. This mode!
is made of wood and covered with a
mixture of paralllno and wax, to give
It a smooth surface. Running the en?
tire length of the tank, several feet
above the water, is an electrical trolley
apparatus, to which the model is at?
tached and by which it is drawp
through the water at certain fixe?
speeds. The waves created and tbejj
character are noted, and the distur?
bance caused abeam and the general
effect produced on the water by the
vessel are closely watched. Where de?
fects are apparent, the designs of the
proposed vessel arc altered to correct
them and by this means the construc?
tors can estimate accurately just the
amount of steam power required to
send a vessel of a certain displacement
and design through the water at a giv
| en rate of spend. Models are now be?
ing made of the three new battleships,
which will be the first tested in the
new tank, it is expected that some
valuable lessons wUj lie learned from
the experiments by which improve?
ments may he ma.de in the plans of the
ships.
GIRL5, DON'T USE SLANG.
It Show?? Lack of Intellect iiuit I? t'.npleas
nut to Hear.
I have often had to blush to hear |
girls use slang, or at least attempt to.
catching up tite bye-words of the
street, and using them as if they were
the familiar speech of home. It shows
first, that the person is not accom?
plished in speech, r.ud has a limited
range of words, which does her no
credit. The use of right words comes
from the association with other minds,
either in books or in society or home.
;i;Ts mind, can he judged by her
choice of words, and that choice is
influenced by her associates largely.
But the great and overwhelming rea?
son for the girl's not using slang is,
that often, perhaps one should say
generally, slang originates in some
anecdote, oftentimes exceedingly vul?
gar, and of evil intent. I have heard
girls use slang phrases, that if a
stranger heard, he would conclude that
they were familiar with obscene and
vile stories, so vile that gentlemen
would not repeat them to each other.
Yet. they had heard men use these ex?
pressions, and had used them them?
selves, entirely unconscious of the'u
meaning. They would have shrunk
back with horror from the use of such
words, if they had known in what they
originated. The language of conceit
halls, saloons and low resorts, of the
vilest place; oftentimes filters into the
public speech, and is taken up by the
M^s. and girls are apt to adopt these
"^^Bssions. when, if they knew the
effgiu of them, they would not for the
world make use of them. Good, clean,
clear, wholesome English, as musical
as Irving and Goldsmith and Addison
could write, is the proper language of
girls, and whenever they use slang to
brighten language with, they tread on
dangerous ground. I once heard a
pretty girl, as good as she was pretty,
use some siang phrases, very much in
vogue with certain people, at that
time. After she had stepped aside, a
young man said to another: "Is it
possible that she has the slightest
comprehension of I: origin of the
words site has beeu using?" The oth
sttid: "i know she has not, she is
a clean-minded girl, and will he shock?
ed.if she were told that she was using
the familiar talk of places of iow re?
sort." Suppose there had b en no
kind friend to thus apologize for her.
Girls, don't use slang.
