A few years ago a teachers' conven I i i"ii met in a small city, and tbe prin cipal of the schools, a Mr. Hawkins, a-k.'«i the pastor of t!ie church to which he belonged to make tbe customary ad dress of welcome. He did so. It was the regulation effort with which we are all so familiar: •'The teacher's responsibility"—with great solemnity. "His character" —with admonition. "His habits"—with proper warning. "His person and dress" —with alig ns. "His manners" —with inferences. "His duty as a citizen, a patriot, a liau," etc.—with orotund vocif leaving tbe audience with ipression that the teacher ought a far different life, and needed A afar, anth or two later a convention of ers had a meeting in the same ud as it happened they met in le room Mindful of past hon ministers asked Hawkins to ex o them the city's welcome.

Wbiskey, be said, not! erfcres with the preparation of nou, but it thickens the preach- j srance and spoils his delivery, uinisters nervously dusted their , es and lowered their noses to ook at him through the long uake sure he wasn't crazy.

' iid tbe old mariner, "goes a he name of the bravest man pver had in their navy and j iravest men that ever lived. it on which W. B.

He wentl ork oblivious of everything »ratiou where deliberation try and haste where he b a hundred rifles were lim and be could see the big les in tbe bow of the Albe id directly on blm he never ow be escaped annihila tion I can understand.— nee in a million saved him." vas only twenty-one at the brilliant exploit. He was tenant Commander and re no as his share of prize lestroying tbe Albemarle. of the destruction of the i too well-known to be re ). After the destruction the world rang with Gush ing'? fame. Not only was bis achieve ment remarkable for tbe splendid bravery displayed but because a whole fleet of Federal ships bad in vaiu tried to make an impression on tbe ram's i ivulnerable sides. Had it not been destroyed in a short time tbe land and w iter operations of the Federal gov ernment would have been in jeopardy. J. M. Batten, M. D, who was a sur geon in the United States Navy, tells in bis book of Cusbing's behavior in connection with tbe destruction of tbe Albemarle. Dr. Batten was a pass enger on the steamer Valley City of tbe Federal fleet on October 23, 1864 Cusbing was also aboard, having just arrived with a torpedo launch which he bad had constructed at the New York Navy Yaid. The next morning Dr. Batten fouud Cusbing bad disap peared. 0:i October 28uh the day af ter tbe destruction of the Albemarle the Valley City got under way and proceeded to the mouth of tbe Roan oke. As she was passiug In Dr. Bat ten says a voice bailed tbe ship from tbe shore aud tbe Valley City sent off a boat, which muc'i to his surprise, on its return brought off Lieutenant Cusbing with ail bis clothing gone ex cept a pair of stockings, pantaloons aud a coarse flannel shirt. He was wet, cold, tired, hungry and prostrated.— He had been absent five days aud most of that time bad be m without food. His crew had consisted of twelve vol unteers of whom two were drowned, one escaped and tbe rest captured. On Cushing's return to tbe fleet he was received with a national salute of twenty-one guns. This is one of tbe few occasions on which a lieutenant not in command has been given a salute with big guns It is the only occasion on which a lieutenant has been saluted with the national salute which is re served for rulers of countries. The Cusbing at present forms part of the reserve torpedo squadron which has its base at Norfolk under command of Lieutenant I. V. Gillis. She will probably be kept in Notfolk during the life of the Jamestown Exposition to be held on the shores of Hampton Roads near Norfolk, in 1907, aud visi tors can then see the famous boat. During tbe Spanish-American War she acted as despatch boat and member of the Cuban blockading fleet. She was built at the yard of tbe Herresboffs at Bristol, Rhode Island. She is 139 feet, 9 inches length on tbe water line, of 14 feet, three inches beam, and draws four feet ten inches of water. Her full load displacement is 142 tons. She is a twin screw vessel driven by Thorneycroft engines capable of generating 1,720 horse power. The vessel is armed with three 18 inch Whitehead torpedo tubes and 3 one pounder rapid fire gnus. Trie ( mhiug was tbe first torpedo boat built for the uew United States Navy aud was given the name Cusbing in response to popular feeling that tbe finest torpedo craft theu known should be given me name of the man who gained world wide fame by his use of a torpedo. She was completed June 1, 1889, and first commissioned on April . * m • — | Starving to Death, ! Be cause her stomach was so weak ened by useless drugging that she CDUId not eat, Mrs. Mary H.

It is tbe opinion of well informed iron and steel men in Wheeling that this deal will be success fully consummated.

The San Francisco Chronicle says: '■The fact that tbe Gould lines have obtained an entry into Oregon has leaked ont through the announcement of A. B. Hammond, president of the Corvailis aud Eastern Astoria aud Co lumbia roads, that the first named road will be extended from the terminus in Idanba, Linn county, across Central Oregon, to some point on tbe Snake river, probably Ontaria. Work will also be started on the Astora in tbe same connection, and it will be pushed south along the coast from Seaslee to Tolbolm and Nehalem and Tillamook county. These projects will aggregate more than 350 miles of construction for the two roads within the next few years. The building of the Corvailis and Eastern to a juncture with the Western Pacific, on the California, .Nevada and Oregon, and thus closing the gap between Albany and Portland or Yaquina and Tillamook, will give the Gould line access to all the north western harbors except Coos bay."
