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.—

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

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.
The Chincoteague clamdigger works
during the greater part of the year, and
a very spry man in a spot where clams
are thick can tread ont a great many'
hundred in a day. 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.
Good looks are more than skin deep, depend
ing upon a healthy condition of all the vital
oreans. If the liver he Inactive, you have a
bilious look: if your stomach be disordered
you have a dyspeptic look, and if your kid
neys be aft'ecte i you have a pinched look. Se
cure good health and you will have good looks.

tonic; acts directly on these vital organs.

From a long letter written by Mrs. Ada E.
Hurd, of Groton. 8. D., we quote: "Was taken
with a bad cold, which settled on my lungs
Cough set In and finally terminated in con
sumption. Four doctors gave me up, saying I
could live but a short time. I gave myself up
to my Saviour, determined if I could not stay
with my friends on earth I would meet my ab
sent ones above My husband was advised to
get Dr King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, Coughs and Colds. I gave it a trial, took
in all eight bottles. It has cured me, and
thank God lam now a well and hearty wo
man." Trial bottles free at C. F Helnzeman's
