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
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
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
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
