The diagram Is of the nctlmt between

llerco sen fight occurred on' Wednesday,
December ao, 1812, In the Atlantic, off
the const of Brazil. The wind wns
from tho no.-tlienst, nnd the nrrow In
tho diagram shows lis direction ns to

2:10 p. in. The position of the two
rrigntcs was broadside on. ns repre

the engagement, until the surrender of
the Java, nt C25 p. in., when their po
sitions wero ns given nt tho ilglit-hnnd
top of tho diagram, of course, In tho
vnrlotis evolutions, tho wind was the
only motive power.
This being tho cnne, the efforts of the
old-time fighters wero largely directed
to destroying the mnsts and sails of
the enemy s vissql-whlch, if tlio effort

The purpose of tho Invention shown

of pnrls or other form of bandage for

and ulso for the euro of bolls, carbun

move the splints at eai-h treatment, uud
It Is the ollice of this shield to facilitate
itceess to thu wound direct. Willi Its
uld It Is possible to prevent contact of
tho sore part with nuytlilug liable to
Injuro or bruise It lu any manner, and
thcro Is ito danger of dislocating a
small plaster or cloth laid over tho

fuelled to the mm to protect n boll,
with straps to bind It on the arm. The
protecting cover Is thrown buck to ex

Is provided to hold tho cover lu a closed

It Is a very cominou superstition tlmt
to rub the hump of a cripple's buck Is
sure to bring good luck. In sumo parts
of tlio country women bclluvo good for
tune m'tiy bo assured by touching a
Chlnuintiit while passing him on tjio
street, and the women or ow Orleans
eeotn to hiivu gone daft on the subject.
Of course they endeavqr to creato tho
Impression tlmt they do It playfully,
but they never neglect opportunity
to touch mi oriental as they puss 111 tit.
A young girl ut one of tlio railroad sin
tlons a few evenings ago figured lu a
rather einbarrnssltig Incident on net-mint
of her ambition mid her effort to
'touch u Chlniiiumi. The oriental hml
drifted Into dm station mill was evi

evidently for tho purpose of crossing
tlio Cliluiimnii'H path nt a certain point

who was shot twice during the engage

til tho victory wns won.
The effect of the American lire upon
the rigging of the Java was no less re
miirknble. When the Ilrltlsh com
lnntider struck his ling, his vessel had
not a single spur stnndliig, nnd Honied,
nn iitttniitingMblc wreck, upon tho sen.
The Urltlsh lire damaged tho Constitu

touched the Chinaman all right, nnd If
tlio good luck Incident to the act or
touching is measured by the vigor and
forco of the touch good fortune 'oitgirt
to shower on her whole family. It was
a llerco collision. The girl was embar
rassed, and from tin- capers cut by the
Cliliutiiimi he evidently thought a
freight train had struck him. Yes, In

At the risk of temporarily driving
Gun. Furlong away from tho Amen cor
ner of the Fifth Avenue Hotel I am
tempted to tell a little story of human
interest. All who know him know that
his heart Is bigger than tlio bodies of
most men, and always was so. Ills
benefactions are many nnd nlwnys un
obtrusive. On Tuesday nfteruoou he
was passing a department store, when
a conversation between a woman and
her little girl of about 8 years attract
ed him. Tho child was pointing to n
doll and the mother was saying to her:
"No, mnmiua can't buy It to-day
dearie." The (ieuernl spoke to the child
and asked the mother to do him a
favor to let tho child stay iitnl look nt
tlio window u few minutes. He went
inside and came out with a doll similar
to tho one In the window, and giving It
to tho child, lifted his lint nnd passed
on. When tlio story wns told on tho
General last night lie grew red aud
