Mass., Oct 2.-H?rc Is an t',r uowritten.chapter of the war told to your jcorrespondent to-day Id the cabin 6 of the schooner Ethel B. Jacobs by her renowned master, Captain Solomon Ja? cobs. Captain Jacobs Is known all ove^ the continent ns the mackerel king, i ' Captain Jacobs' reputation as a coast ?&;. pilot Is known all over the country. In ^ '' the spring, Just after war had been declarcd with Spain, while sauntering jg alone Blackball dock, at one end of fr; Fulton Ash market, in New York, a j$f k Spanish gentleman was attracted by the incoming of the Jacobs. Hardly had the mfc- anchor of bis vessel touched the rlver\y. bed when a launch put off from a pier Bp to the craft of Captain JTacobs, the party ^ consisting of two men ond two women. C" . mw- <nai InvKnd tn thn oilhln 4 UC VUUiyOU; ItAM iu <?? 'C by Captain Jacobs. "Captain," said the fc' head of the party, "you are the man I am in search of. Do you object to making a good sum of money as a pilot?" K "Oh, no," replied Captain Jacobs, "not |S if it is made a sufficient object." jr "Captain, I understand that you are v- not an American born, therefore I have a proposition. If you will act as pilot of < '. the Spanish fleet which will shortly sail for .these shores, you will get 135.000. We irlsh to elude any ship which may pur1 sue us, and" your knowledge Of every ;; harbor along the coast, especially of the ' shoals route, would make you especially valuable to use In evading pursuit after ^ ravaging the New England coast. If we ?> can we will visit other Atlantic coast k ckles and then proceed to the Pacific. [' Furthermore, there are countries beI aides Atnerlca. You can sell out and take your family to England, of which you are a native, and spend the rest of r your days there." I. But Captain Jacobs shook' his head. "We will make the offer *50.000 then," J& persisted the agent. But still Captain Jacobs declined. "What do you aay to C 175,000Y" and the agent held the bait j?r temptingly under the nose of the Gloucester skipper. It was quite an offer, but r the skipper again shook his head. "Not any.price," he said, quite gently, but b; firmly. Observing that it was' useless to f - continue, the party rose to go. "I am !/stopping at the hotel, captain," said the i .; agent, with a certain significance. % "Should you desire to call upon me I should be pleased to see you before you saiL" Captain Jacobs escorted them to the p side of the vessel, and bade them a pleasant good-bye. He slept upon the proposition, but never called at the hotel to accept. The plan, if the agent's quest had been successful, was that the captain ?hnnid meet the Soanlsh fleet at a cer tain point and proceed immediately to the New England coast and work down, r taking advantage of the captain's v knowledge of various passages to elude successful pursuit, and eventually to ravage the Pacific coast.

HAT'S TRIBUTE ?'ik? I-b?k Ex.Ambaiua dor Ttioinni P. Dayartl. WASHINGTON, D. C.. Sept. 30.-The following tribute to Thomas F. Bayard was written by Secretary of State John Hay: 'The news of Mr. Bayard's fatal Illness?followed so swiftly by the tidings of his lamented death?came upon his many friends with a singular shock.1 One of the elements of the remarkable charm which distinguished him was his persistent youthfulness. Ills handsome face was nlways young; he had th-? voice and the bearing of buoyant youth; his enthusiasm and quick emotions were those of a pure-minded and high-spirited boy. His scorn of everything mean or base; his disregard of consequences In the pursuit of what he thought right; this frank expectation of that sympathy which he was so ready 'to give; his belief in the sincerity of others,being himself absolutely sincere; all these qualfc les, even more than his good looks and gallant bearing, gave the Impression I not only of a young man, but of one wno WQUIU aiwa*a uu yuuns. It Is hard to thjnk that the rigid limit of throe score and ten years should be tbetercn of so much activity and energy. But the fine vitality and power of such a character will survive his death. In the affection of those who knew him; as a model and exiimple to those who admired him, he will live long as an enduring memory and a wholegome Inspiration." \ BKGI England ha* m nun tea nor cicvcr* ' Ran camels have boon In use in the Bi f It would be well lo add a camel corps . well that they are capitally adapted [ and absolute bravery, in the coming may be a unique feat tiro "of her ma J. >f >f l)P .

' Their hard lives, their liability to serious troubles on account of their peculiar organism and their profound ignorance concerning themselves, all combine to shorten the period of usefulness and fill their later years with suffering. ( Mrs. Pinkham has done touch to moke women strong. She has given advice to many that bns shown them how to guard against disease and retain vigorous health in old age. From every corner of thc;earth there fs constantly coming the most convincing statements from women, shouting the efficacy of Lydia K. Pinkhom's Vegetable Compound in overcoming femalo ills.

CONGRESSMAN BASSE'S MISFORTUNE. Tli? Only man who Defeated "Horizontal Bill" Gone Blind. BELLEVILLE, I1L, Sept. 30. - Coni gressman Jehu Baker is blind. After an active career, covering half a century, he must travel the remnant of his road with sightless eyes. At his agehe Is seventy?the doctors say there Is no hope for a restoration of sight. This calamity has not fallen suddenly. The congressman has been ailing for some time. In fact, he never quite recovered from his serious illness of four years ago. Congressman Baker has been for years a conspicuous figure in politics In southern Illinois. He Is the only man who ever defeated Col. William It. Morrison. so long congressman for this, the old Eighteenth district, and more recently-chairman of the Inter-state comMi.nmlaalnn Mr Rflk?r ri*?ff?H.ted Col. Morrison three times. At Che last election In which Morrison was defeated the tariff was the gr?>at Issue. and Col. MorrlsoH was such a consplcunus^low tariff man that he was known from one end of the United Stated to the other as "Horizontal Bill." Mr. Raker was prevailed upon by the Republicans to take another n6mlnatlon against his old opponent. The campaign which followed Is historic in this part of the world. Its like was never seen before or since. When the ballots were counted Mr. Baker was elected, and Mr. Morrison never again became a candidate for an elective office. The Mnre La (Irlppe Cur*.

Have s'ou ever read a newspaper article, a glowing: account of some Incident told In elusive words to lead you on. and found It ended up with a proprietary medicine advertisement? Made you mad. didn't It? and were you convinced of the merit of the article? We think not, because It told the experiences of some stranger in a far-away town, to take his word for it was like "going It blind." It's a very different thing when a statement Is prescribed from a citizen; from people we know and that's, -ihe case here. Mr. J. M. Prltchard. of 3328 Eoff street, engineer at Wood Bros.' planing mill, says: "During the war I enlisted in Company A,Sixth West Virginia regiment, nnd served several months over my term of three years. It Is to the exposure and hardships endured that I attribute the trouble 1 had with my kid neys. My back was so sore ana wean that were I to stoop or alt for a while I could scarcely straighten up again. I could not rest at nights and was so restless that I rolled about the bed for hours trying to get a position In which I could rest. I suffered a great deal from headaches and spoils of dizziness and often when T would raise op I would be almost totally blind for a time. In doing my work I found my trouble a great drawback, as I could not get around and do things with the alacrity I wanted to. The kidney secretions were highly colored, scanty nnd contained sediment and were very Irregular. I -tried a great many things, but was never able to get any positive relief until I saw Doan's Kidney Pills advertised and got a box at the Logan Drug Company.
