AREAL PIRATE ISLAN
It Was Once the Stronghold of Morgan, the Buccaneer. A TINY COUNTRY TO ITSELF. Old Providence, an Uncanny Spot In the Caribbean Sea, and the Lawless, Reckless, Murderous Crew That Now Claim It as Their Own. Sailing upon that almost unknown sea which ebbs and flows upon the Mosquito Coast, the line of the horizon is broken by two faint points. As the vessel approaches nearer a strange $ight meets the vision. The points have become two jaws looming against the clearness of the sky and water. It is as if an enormous mouth had been suddenly thrust out of the sea with distended jaws pointed skyward. Truly the sight is uncanny, but the jaws mark an uncanny spot in the Caribbean. Once these waters were not so deserted by man. Upon their bosom passed stately galleons, the plate ships loaded with treasure from the new Spain. When their captains saw those black jaws they may have said an Ave as, altering their course, they sailed away from them, for this bit of dry spot in the ocean was then known, as it is today, as a pirate is land. Old Providence, as the map maker calls it is in truth a dot on the waters. Not over four miles from end to end in its longest direction and half as much in width, a good walker can en circle it by the little coast path the na tives call a highway in half a day. The human beings who call it home are confined to Its outer edge, for the sub marine volcano which at some time in the' past ages gave birth to Old Provi dence in one of its convulsions, topped it off with a miniature mountain range stretching above the center of the is land. It is one of these mountains that. forms the black gaping jaws so plainly seen long before the graceful cocoanut palms marking the shore line are visi ble. In a- whimsical display of its power the volcano cut a great wedge in one of the peaks-a wedge fully a hundred feet across at the top and tapering to a score or so at the bottom. Today, as centuries ago, Old Provi dence is a tiny country to itself. Far out of the modern ocean highway. in one of the least frequented parts of the Caribbean, the steamship or sailing ship has no occasion to pass near it unless driven there by storm. There is no postoffice, for the reason that there is no mail service. True, it is claimed by some country just as every point that sticks out of the sea is claimed. Colombia calls Old Providence a part of Its republic, but not a man lives upon It to act as governor, judge or even agent. So its people kill, steal and commit other crimes utterly re gardless of any authority save force and the little influence of the solitary white man who has cast his lot among them. St. Catherine, as it was mockingly called in the old days, was the strong hold of Henry Morgan. For nearly 250 years the blood of his followers has flowed in the veins of its people, but before the freebooters sailed Into its harbor the Spanish governor of Costa Rica had made it an island prison for criminals he thought too dangerous to keep on the mainland. When Morgan defeated the garrison he placed as -guards of his captives 100 of these con victs, released on their promise to join has band-literally human dregs of new Spain. Again the Spaniards cap tured the Island and turned it into a penal colony until Morgan's flag was raised above it in 1670 and the struggle for its possession ended. Since then most of those who have lived upon it have been descendants of the white outlaws, their convict allies and the black women who went there from the West Indies on Morgan's ship. The blood of the islanders is the blood of English, Irish and Scotch, but adulterated with that of the negro. To day fully 1,000 persons live upon this Islet-a thousand human beings who have degenerated In mind until the majority of them are little better than beasts. Murder is common; theft is not a crime; marriage is'nnknown. Only the fear of a stronger keeps many a man from +ting life for a trifie. Most of the cocoanuts are traded for clothing, liquor, firearms. knives and trinkets. After a vessel has loaded and departed, for days the island may be the scene of a drunken debauch, which brings to mind stories written about the carousals of the buccaneers after the capture of a prize, but here is no captain or discipline of the sea. The weaker are the prey -of the stronger, and robbery and kiling pass unnoticed. It is the testimony of Fa ther St John, the brave priest who alone is endeavoring to do something to Improve the condition of these peo ple, that scarcely a week passes with out a murder. With only a handful out of the 1,000 population acknowledging any form of Christianity, it is not strange that the belief in fetiches, even voodooism, should be widespread. Witch doctors and sellers, of charms for good and evil are numerous. Most of the wo men wear next to the skin a tuft of hair, a piece of rag smeared with blood or some other amulet which is Intended to cast a spell over their ene mies or to keep off Satin, in which all believe. But the life and history of these hu man renegades are not the only evi dence to prove that their home is a real pirate island and not the sort of which the novelists are so fond of describ hig. At Its north end rises a rocky plateau covering half a dozen acres. Really t s another Island. but sepa He Fired the Stick. "I have fired the walking stick Prve carried over 40 years, on account of a sore that resisted every kind of treat ment; until I tried Bucklen's Arnica Salve; that has healed the -sore and and made me a happy inan." writes John Garrett, of North Mills, N.

"and I de ire to apologize for it. The lots you sold me are under water at high tide. You're really a marine shark." However, even this concession did not seem to restore the entente oor dale.-Philadelphi~a L~edgcr. Killed.

The highest point oni this plateau bears a slight resemblance to a man's face, andethe native says that it is "Mor gan's Head." The tifty foot precipice which extends from the water's edge to the top of the plateau is so steep as to be almost inaccessible except in two or three places where the storms of years have worn away the stone. The top is so covered with vines, shrubs and other growth that not until one has penetrated into their midst does he find the remains of a wall evi dentlf the work of human hands. Most of it is hidden by the rank vegetation, but enough of the massive masonry can be seen to indicate that it was in tended for a fortification A strange sight are the dozen or more pieces of artillery mounted upon a plateau at the north eud. Some of them are of brass. but long since thick ly coated with verdigris, which gives I them the aplparnllCe of fallen trees green with mold. Others are of iron, but all of them still bear traces of the artistic inagery with which the gun makers of the seventeenth century dec orated their work. Lying inside of the wall. the guns were evidently a part of the armament of Santa The resa, the castle which *the Spaniards built for the main defense of St. Cath erine. but which they surrendered to Morgan in 1G70 with eight smaller forts and batteries. Contagious diseases frequently. rav age the land and kill scores in a vis itation. Ignorant of sanitation, know ing little or nothing of medicine and depending chiefly on the charms they get from the voodoo doctors to ward off disease. the people often die from ail ments which in other conditions might be cured. From the accouuts of the old men there is no doubt that fifty years ago the number of inhabitants was much greater than at present. A half cen tury hence may see the descendants of the pirates of this southern ocean re duced to a mere handful if not entirely extinct.-Day Allen Willey in Minne apolis Journal. A Fortunate Man.

Names have figured frequently in co incidences, one of the most remarkable cases being that recorded of a series of men named Hugh Williams. whose es capes from shipwreck are recorded by an English chronicler. On Dec. 5,'16G4. according to this au thority. the English ship Menia was crossing the strait of Dover and 'cap sized in a gale. Of the eighty-one pas sengers on board one was saved. His name was Hugh Williams. On the same day of the same month in 1785 a pleasure boat was wrecked on the Isle of Man. There were sixty persons on the boat among them one Hugh Williams and his family. Of the threescore none but old Hugh Williams survived the shock. On Aug. 5. 1820, a picnicking party on the Thames was run down by a coal barge. There were twenty-five of the picnickers, mostly childden under twelve years of age. Little Hugh Wil liams, a visitor from Liverpool, only five years old. was the only one who was saved. Now comes the most singular part of this singular story. On Aug. 19,1889, a coal laden craft, with nine men, foun dered in the North sea. Two of the men, each of whom was named Hugh Williams. an uncle and nephew, were rescued by some fishermen and were the only men of the crew who lived to tell of the calamity.--Scrap Book. Herschel's Memory. Until he had oecome a very eld man Sir ,Tohn Herschel retained the strength of intellect and freshness of memory which enabled him to accomplish his great scientific work. Sir Henry E. Roscoe in his autobiography records an instance when Herschel was seven ty-four years old. One evening in 1866 I happened to meet him. He mentioned as an inter esting piece of news that a star re cently discovered had suddenly burst out into first or second magnitude. "Do you know," said Herschel, "that when I was at the Cape I observed a precisely similar phenomenon?" He considered a moment and added, "Yes, it was in the year 1835." Again he paused but a moment and conclud .ed, "On August the 16th at 1 o'clock in the morning." The Magic No. 3. Number three is a wonderful mascot for Geo. H.

The German Poet Worked With Wet Towels on His Head and Strong Coffee at His Elbow-Endurance of Humboldt, Balzac and Voltaire. "Five hours' sleep is sufficient for men," declared Napoleon; "seven for women, children and fools." History hardly bears out the great Corsican's dictum, although there have been some notable advocates among the world's great men of the theory generally regarded as "burning the! candle at both ends." Men, however, undoubtedly differ fundamentally in re gard to the need of sleep as they do in other respects, and, whether great or little, each one must work out from I experience a schedule of rest, as he must of diet and exercise. One fact, however, may be predicated of almost all grer t persons-whatever their hab its as regards retiring they have been early risers. During the years of Dan iel Webster's greatest congressional ac tivity it was remarked of him that no one ever saw him reading or preparing for his speeches. This was all.done, according to his own confession, at an hour when other men were still enjoy ing their morning slumber. Webster possessed in a high degree what is known as the "morning temperament," as distinguished from the "night tem perament." and he found consequently that his mind manifested greatest clarity and productivity during the ear ly hours of the day. Training undoubtedly has much to do with the 'prmation of mental hab its, but it is 'folly, says the New York Herald, to deny the existence of an in born inclination stronger than train ing or discipline. The German poet Schiller is a luminous example of the "night temperament," and he is pic tured with wet towels around his head and strong coffee at his elbow as he bent over his lamp illumined manu script. Yet, *like all German boys, Schiller was trained to early rising, and if he deliberately chose the night for his time of composition it was be cause of an inner Impulse which admit ted of no refusal. With the approach of evening the heart quickens its pulsa tions, and respirations become more rapid, and the whole system suffers an increase of feverish a'ectivity; hence we are prepared to find the "night disposi tion" in the case of nervous and ex citable brain workers, notably of poets and writers of fiction. To but few is it given to produce year In and year out a certain fixed daily quota, as in the case of Anthony Trollope, who early set himself to work and with whom the arrival of noon marked the completion of his day's task. Balzac, on the other hand, that Titan of the nineteenth century, was accus tomed regularly to arise at midnight and after enveloping himself in his monk's habit to seat himself at his desk and force his weary brain to its task of creation. Carried away by ad miration of the "master," Theophile Gautier and a number of other am bitious youths of the day undertook to imitate this peculiarity of the "father of realism," with the result that very soon they were forced to take to their beds in earnest to make up for the hours stolen from slumber. -Doctors doubtless would point to the early tak ing off of Balzac, who died when fifty one years of age, as proof of the del eterious effects of such a regimen. On the other hand, it may be question ed whether his exhaustion was not due to the privations and financial troubles of his early years rather than to work at Ill advised hours. It is as illogical to attribute his early death to the ab normality of his habits of labor as to attribute. the long survival of Voltaire and the explorer and traveler, Alexan der Humboldt, to a like cause. IOn one occasion Max Muller, as re lated in his autobiography, was return ing from an evening entertainment in Berlin with Humboldt, who was then eighty years of age, and the conversa tion turned upon the latter's "Cosmos." Bitterly the savant complained that he was no longer' able to accomplish as much as previously, since he now re quired four hours' sleep instead of two, as In earlier years. "When I wvas your age," he remarked to the philologian, "I would simply turn down my lamp, and after a nap of two hours would be as fresh as ever." The sleeping room of Voltaire's sec retary at Ferney was directly beneath that of the author, and at any hour of the day or night when moved to com position the great Frenchman was ac customed to stamp upon the floor of his chamber and summon the unfortu nate scribe to take 'down his thoughts. When once under way It was no un usual thing for him te continue work ing for sixteen hours at a stretch. Goethe despite his habit of early ris ing was wont to arise in the night to scribble down a poem or song, and Emerson's wife was subject to the danger of being aroused by the philos opher in his search for writing mate rials. "Only a thought, my dear," he would reassure her as he seized the fleeting inspiration. During the time -'when suspicioD pointed strongly to Sir Walter Scott as the author of the Waverley novels the closest watchfulness of his guests at Abbotsford failed to detect signs of literary activity on their host's part, the reason being that his pen had al ways completed its daily labors by the time the amateur detectives had arisen from their beds.

Hannibal, with about 50,000 men, nearly anniilated the Ro man army of about U0,00 at Cannae, at Apulia, Italy, but It Is all a fable to say that he sent three bushels of gold rings plucked from the hands of dead ILoman knights back to Carthage as evidence of his victory. The mes senger who carried the news back to the Carthaginlan senate on concluding his report "opened his robe and threw out a number of gold rings gathered on the field of battle." Four years later the Romans, under Marcellus, attacked and captured Syra cuse. belonging to Greece, because of its alliance with Hannibal against Rome. As the invading ships ap proached, Archimedes is said to have set some of them on fire with immense burning glasses. However, modern science has so well watered this story that it only remains to add that even at this day the feat would be impossi ble. Great Builders. Au eminent Divine once preached a sermon from this text: "On building and builders." He talked of the World's Great architects. artists, authors, paint ers, sculptors, etc. He said that every one, no matter how low his station in life, who left the world better than he found it, was a builder, that he who digged a ditch well built for the world's betterment. He might truthfully added that he who discovers a great remedy like Rydale's Tonic. works for the world's betterment. Rydale's Tonic is a human system builder It purifies and. builds the blood, restores weak nervous systems and increases the strength and weight. All who have used Rydale's Tonic, pronounce it a areat system tonic and builder. Dr. W. E. Brown & Co. She Didn't Accept. A little episode once greatly delight ed Calve, the famous prima donna. She was being escorted over a famous grotto when she suddenly thought of an opera and burst into song, to which the boy' who was her guide listened with much satisfaction. When she stopped he seriously remarked, "If you asked the proprietor whether you might sing In here while the people are being shown over I think he would pay you well." "How much do you think he would give me?" asked the prima don na. entering thoroughly Into the spirit of the adventure. After thinking care fully the boy replied. "About 5 francs a day." Cured Hemorrhages of the Lungs. "Several years since my lungs were so badly atiected that I had many hem orrhages," writesA. M. Ake, of Wood, Ind.

I recommend it in advance stages of lung trouble." Foley's Honey and Tar stops the cough and heals the lungs, and prevents serious results from a cold. Refuse sub'stitutes. The Arant Co. Drug Store.

It was submitted to congress and adopted by act of congress June, 1782. The eagle in its beak bears a ribbon, on which is the motto. In the early days of its use the eagle bore also in its talons a bundle of thirteen arrows, but when, in 1841, a new seal was made to take the place of the old one, which had become worn, only six arrows were placed in the talons. Whether this change was ordered by law or not Is not known. The old Latin .iotto was in use In England as far'back as 1730 on the Gentleman's Magazine.
