Stories of Foolhardy Men Who Havt Crossed the Atlantic The record of adventurous persons who have crossed the Atlantic in crafts of small dimensions is, comparatively speaking', a long one, but nothing has been accomplished beyond fame for a few, and almost repulsive stories of privations of various kinds and failure. The latest effort of adventure in this direction is that of Capt. Freitsch, a Finn, who is to try to cross the Atlantic in a forty-six-foot flat-bottomed schooner-rigged, skiff, constructed by himself at Milwaukee. He started from that city recently crossing the lake and coming through the Erie canal to Troy, thence down the Hudson to this city, says the New York Tribune. He pro poses to start at an early day, going first to Southampton, thence to port? on the continent, and later return to the United States. Voyages of this kind in such small craft are evidently more remarkable than those of clippers, yachts and schooners, on account of the perils of the ocean, the paucity of the crew to manage the helm and sails during a period measured by months and the spirit and pluck of the individual. But it cannot be said that such voyages really accomplish anything for the science of navigation. In July, 1866, Capt. Hudson and F. E. Fiteh, the latter acting as mate, and a dog, in a twenty-six-foot lifeboat called the Red, White and Blue, and rigged as a schooner, started from Sandy Hook on a voyage of unknown duration and un certain vicissitude across the Atlantic. The boat had several narrow escapes from capsizing, and thirty-seven days after leaving New York she entered Margate harbor. The boat and her crew were exhibited at the Crystal Palace, where the story of the voyage was oft-told. The hardy navigators did not return in the same way they had "had enough of it." In the same year a small yacht of twenty -five tons made the voyage from Liverpool to New South Wales, reaching there in one hundred and fifty days, a distance of sixteen thousand miles. In June, 1876. Alfred Johnson started from Gloucester in a small boat, manned only by himself, and sixty-seven days later he reached Liverpool. The voy age was a perilous one, and when about three hundred miles off the Irish coast his boat was capsized, and he was providentially assisted by a huge wave in righting it. Another bold adventure was that of Capt. Thomas Crapo, who, with his wife, crossed the ocean in a twenty foot boat called the New Bedford. The adventurers sailed from New Bedford in June, and fifty-four days later reached Penzance and were right glad to end the voyage. The experiences were most bitter and heart-rending. Jn July, 1888, Capt. Andrews sailed from Boston and crossed the Atlantic. The story of the voyage was like that of many others deprivation of com forts and food, loss of sleep, hair breadth escapes, dangerous hurricanes and newspaper notoriety. ALL EUROPE READY FOR WAR. The Great Nations Prepared for a Decla ration of Hostilities. After the dreadful Franco-German war of 1870-1871 the principle of pro longed military service and of dimin ished annual contlctrents was given up. says McClure's Magazine. The mon strous principle of universal service was adopted instead. By this prin ciple the whole nation is under arms. A country is no longer a country, a people is no longer a people; a nation is now nothing but an army, and a coun try is only a barrack. Everybody wears the uniform. Everybody is sur le qui vive. If war breaks out to-day all pro fessions become deserted, all function abandoned; the life of the nation stops so that national activity may be said to begin again only with the blood that is shed. Moreover, before two hostile armies, that is, two nations which are enemies, join in combat, each of the two armies, that is, each of the two in finite hordes which traverse their sev eral countries to meet eventually on the field of battle, will leave behind it a country in famine, its factories silent and its trade paralyzed. Again, enor mous stocks of food supplies must be accumulated on the frontiers where the two armies are likely to meet; but be fore reaching these inexhaustible mag azines the armies must be fed while crossing their own territories, and that requires money. So, that, before even the first gun is fired, each army will have expended enormous sums and left in its train towns and villages stripped of men and beasts, the cities in famine, the country without a single tiller of the field. Carnot and the Figrnre Seven. The French papers have been noting the curious way in which the career of President Carnot was connected with the figure "7." He was born in 1837, was admitted to the Ecole polytechnique in 1857, was elected by virtue of article 7 of the constitution to the office of president of the republic in 1887, was assassinated at the age of 57 years, in the seventh year of his presidency, in a carriage containing seven- persons (four inside and three outside, a coachman and two footmen), on the seventh ;day of the week, by an Italian (a word of seven letters) named Cesario (also formed of seven letters). Finally, lie was borne in triumph to the Pantheon on the first day of the seventh month of the year, seven days after his death. PETER MINU IT'S "M ISTAKE. He Lost Money When He Bought Man hattan Island for Twenty-Four Dollars. History tells us that 268 years ago, or in 1626, Peter Minuit bought Man hattan island from the Indians and paid for it 824 in merchandise. It has usually been thought that Peter took advantage of the ignorance of the untutored savage and made an excellent bargain for himself. No doubt but that Peter thought it a good trade, particularly when he con sidered the value of lots after the streets would be laid out, Central park improved, Brooklyn bridge built and the island had a population of two millions; for Peter was a shrewd real estate speculator , and looked a long way ahead with a correct, prophetic eye. Notwithstanding all of Peter's shrewdness and foresight he made the mistake of his life and lost millions of dollars by his purchase. He didn't stop to figure interest. . t- Since 1626 the rate of interest in this country, where money has always been in demand, has ranged from six per cent, up to highway robbery. It will be conservative to say that eight per cent, is a fair average. Now, if Peter had loaned his $24 at eight per cent, compound interest, from then until this date, what would its value be, compared with the value of Manhattan island? At eight per cent, compound interest, money will double once in about nine years. Now, there have been twenty nine times nine years, and seven years more, since Peter made his purchase. Then, if he had loaned his $24 he would have had nearly 8400,000 at the end of the first one hundred years, and more than 8200,000,000 at the close of the sec ond century, while in 1894 his principal of $24 would have grown to be 320,000, 000,000 the value of Manhattan island many times over. So, in fact the Indians got the best of the bargain, and no doubt they chuckled over the situation as they walked through Baxter street with the 824 worth of merchandise in their arms. THE WALLS OF SEOUL. How a Party of Travelers Scaled Them ' After Nightfall. Seoul, like Pekin, and, what is more, like all the cities of Corea and China, says a traveler, writing in the New York Herald, is surrounded by im mense walls; and the gates of the city are closed each evening at set of sun. The latter had been replaced by the moon when we arrived at the foot of these great walls, which must be all of fifty feet in height. Not wishing to leave us to pass the night outside the city and exposed to numberless dan gers, the minister had had the happy idea to have us conveyed to a secluded spot where we were assisted to climb over the walls. A score of Coreans sat astride the top and lowered strong ropes. The ascent was perilous and very difficult. It took at least a half hour to hoist one of our friends, who being enormously stout, gave to the Coreans an immense deal of difficulty, and, besides, he, terrified to find himself swinging in space at the end of a rope, to our great delight, uttered howls of fright. Thus was our entry into Seoul something less than triumphant. Tailoring.
