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
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
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

ROMANCE OF A NAME.
Hugh Williams and a Remarkable
Series of Coincidences.
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
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.

SLEEP OF GREAT MEN
As a Rule All Famous Figures:
Have Been Early Risers.
SCHILLER WROTE AT NIGHT.
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
During the time -'when suspicioD

Don't Get Excited.
History does not depend on acci
dents. The growth of the race is to
ward a definite goal. The rain at
Waterloo made no history. Gettysburg
was not a scratch. If fate drops a
stitch here, she picks it up there. The
thread goes on. The current of life
moves. The individual plays his part
his little part-and sinks, but there is
no hole in the stream when he goes
under, whether he be president or
plumber, king or carpenter, so don't'
get excited about your fate. Do the
best you can, and, above all, be calm!
