A LEADER OF SLAVES.
ROMANTIC RISE AND FALL Of | ' TOUSSAINT L'OUVERTURE. I A Character In History Which Haa Fur nished a Theme for Poets and Orators. Napoleon's Base Treatment of the Great , General —His Untimely End. Thirty years ago Toussaint L'Ouver turo was a name to conjure with. Poets and orators described his virtues and hia genius and cited him as an illustrious example of the capabilities of his race, j A romantic interest will always attach to his name. The fact that for fifty-four years he lived in deepest obscurity as a slave on a Haytian plantation and the epio character of his subsequent achieve ments give a tinge of antique heroism to his history. The French colony in Hayti was long one of the greatest slave marts in the •world. At the time of the French revo lution there were in the colony 80,000 whites, 20,000 free mulattoes and 500,000 ■laves. The mulattoes, many of whom had been educated in France, took ad vantage of the revolution and obtained a recognition of their political rights from the Funneli assembly; the whites of Hayti refused to recognize the decision and a war broke out which was soon complicated by an uprising of the whole slave population. On a memorable night dn August. 1791, the plantations were fired and many of the whites were mur dered. Tonssaint had not at this time ac quired the name of L'Ouverture. This word, meaning "tho opening," was ap plied to him afterward because he opened a way for the freedom of his race through the chaotic conditions of the following years. In the dreadful-wars of the years fol lowing the uprisal of the slaves his ex itraordinary influence over his race and his military genius gave him pro-emi nence over all other chiefs. A design of freeing his race, which could only be scconrplished by making it the ruling race of Hayti, gradually took shape in his mind and forms the key note of his career. France, Spain and England each bid high for his alliance, but France de clared for the freedom of the slaves and he Anally, ranged himself under the French flag. It was evidently his desire to maintain a desirable connection with a European power which would yet leave him at liberty to develop his plans for his own race, but the realization of his idea required a disinterested co-op eration of which no European govern ment was capable. In a few years he had been recognized by France as commander in chief of the attuy of Hayti and was practically dic tator of tho island. As a ruler of £ayti he surrounded himself with the pomp of a prince, al though personally he retained habits of severe simplicity. Ho ate sparingly and slept little, being possessed of extraor dinary powers of endurance. In dignity of manner he was entirely equal .to his position. He endeavored to reconcile conflicting races, and his rule was im partial and able. . 4 < But Napoleon was not the man to al low a dictator under himself. He sent an army of 80,000 men to Hayti to re store slavery and reduce the colony to subjection. Suspecting tho true purpose of the ex pedition, Toussaint resisted the landing of the army, but finally laid down his arms after he had been assured that there was no intention of restoring slavery and that he injured the cause of his race by resistance. He was still too powerful to be openly seized, but he was decoyed into the French quarters and was then hurried on boartl a vessel and carried to France, He hoped to meet Napoleon and defend his conduct, bnt on landing he was se cretly hurried to a lonely fortress in the Alps, where he shortly afterward died. Many wild stories attributing his death to murder found credence at the time. Neglect and the change from a tropic to an Alpine climate doubtless hastened his end. •! By his removal the progress of his race was incalculably retarded. While Toussaint's fate and place of im prisonment were still unknown, Wads worth wrote the beautiful sonnet, "To .Toussaint L'Ouverture." His history is the subject of a drama by Lamartine, and of a novel, "The Hour and the Man," by Harriet Martineau. During tho antislavery agitation in the United States he was cited as a most illustrious example of the real capabilities of hi; race. A poem by Whittier aud an ora tion by Wendell Phillips commemorate hia virtues and his genius.—Detroit Free Press. Wide Columns and the Eyesight. Eye experts insist that people who l wish to preserve their eyesight will do well to confine their reading as far as possible to round, fat faced type, and to avoid that which is tall and thin. It was the shape of the type of the tiny edition of Dante produced at the French exposition almost as much as its minute ness which blinded some of the persons engaged in correcting the sheets, j Another important point is to avoid [too wide a column or the eye is strained. |The only way to neutralize the tendency to such strain is to turn- the head from aide to side, after the manner of short sighted people. The width of a column ,of reading matter ought not to exceed at the outside two inches, because that r is about the natural range of the eye wl|en the head is kept motionless.— Pittsburg Dispatch.

Fulled Out of His Boat by a Fiah. I am more and more convinced that it is not wise on all occasions to question a tall fish story—a Btory that on its face seems, to put iv mildly, very improba ble. Thomas Jefferson, of Stillwater, N. V., was fishing in the Hudson river and returned home wet to the skin and said that he hooked a big fish which pulled him into the water from the boat, and very promptly the man with the historic name was classed as an Al ftsh Har. A day or two ago a pike of twenty eeven pounds weight was found dead or dying in the river, and in its mouth was found Thomas Jefferson's spoon hook, and attached to his hook was his lino. The fisherman had told the truth. He was standing up in his boat and the fish caught him off his balance and pulled him in. I personally knew of a fishing com panion being pulled into the water in something the same way by a lake trout of less than half the weight of the pike. The angler hooked the fish and at tempted to stand up in the boat. He was cold and cramped from sitting and the lake was rough, and over he went. The funny part of it was that his boat man, who was looking ahead, did not see him go overboard, nor did he hear him. The boat felt lighter and, looking around, the oarsman found himself alone in the boat and it was more than a mile to shore. The boat was backed up and the angler caught the gunwale with one hand and clung to his rod with the other, and fish and fisherman were both saved.—Forest and Stream. Ernest Renan. An enchanting and multiform artist in ideas, a curious mind implanted in an amorphous body, M. Renan offers in his writings a brilliant monument of con crete skepticism and a complete exposi tion and apology of that dilettanteism which is certainly ravaging the intellec tual classes of modern France. We say "ravaging" intentionally, because great and exquisito as may be the joys procured by dilettanteism, they are of a noncre ative and unvirilo kind. Indeed, if we had not imposed upon ourselves the im personal attitude of the compiler of an inventory we should be tempted to call attention to the harmony of M. Renan's physical and intellectual personality, and to compare that great shapeless body to some huge polype or anemone, floating helplessly in the sea of proba bilities, rising or sinking, inclining to the right or to the left, as instinct, or a ray of sunlight, or the hazards of a cur rent may inspire; but in any case merely floating and otherwise incapable of choosing a direction and following it. So M. Renan's mind, thanks to multi form appreciation combined with vast inattention, is amused and fascinated by the many sidedness of phemomena. It sees at once ten or twenty phases, and being incapable of the effort necessary to decide srliich iB the best, it sinks back into the joys of submarine mirage, and reflects the beauty of things on its poly chrome facets that have the prismatic aud illusory charm of sea flowers. —The- odore Child in Harper's. When Man Waa In Darknesi. Man was once in comparative dark ness when the sun went down. His primitive habitation was a place of rest, uulighted by the oil which prolongs the hours of labor, doubles the speed of progress and shortens life. After ages of groping about—feeling for the key hole on tho wrong side of the door, so to speak—he stumbled on the fact that fat would make a light. Looking around for something to hold the fat the skulls of animals were found useful, and so the antediluvian discovered the princi ple of portable illumination. From skulls and seashells light pro ceeded to vessels of burned clay, dish like, with wicks of flax, rushes and other fibers. Many of these primitive lamps have been found in the ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum and elsewhere, but the invention of the lamp is sup posed to belong to the ancient East In dians. Until the beginning of the Nine teenth century there was little im provement in lamps. The candle kept humanity in somidarkness, which was relieved by the introduction of mineral oil, which stimulated invention and brought about the lamp of beauty and utility of the present. — Mechanical News. The Size of tbe Gulf Stream. People think the Mississippi a great stream, and it is so in truth, so far as land rivers go, but great as it is it would require 2,000 such rivers to make one Gulf Stream. The great ocean river is an irresistible flood of water, running all the time, winter and summer, and year after year. It is as difficult for the mind to grasp its immensity as it is to realize the distance of the nearest stars. At its narrowest part in the Straits of Florida it is thirty-nine miles wide, has an average depth of 2,000 feet and a velocity at the axis—the point of fastest flow—of from three to more than five milos per hour. To say that the volume in one hour's flow past Cape Florida is 90,000,000,000 tons in weight does not convey much to the mind. If we could evaporate this one hour's flow of water and distribute the remaining salt to the inhabitants of the United States, every man, woman and child would receive nearly sixty pounds.—Detroit Free Press. Oscar Wilde's Little Joke. Oscar Wilde does not appear to have lost his nimble wit. At a dinner party in London the other night the coffee had been sipped and the men were becoming weary of the tardiness in bringing on the cigarettes. Suddenly some one re marked that a lamp was smoking. "Happy lamp!" exclaimed Oscar, and the hostess took tho hint.—Exchange. A Clamdigger's Earnings.

Clams fetch from $J. to $1.50 per 1,000 at Chincoteague, which' seems a great deal for the money when one thinks of clam chowder at a fash ionable restaurant.—New York Sun. Good Looks.
