The Monitor had been formally com missioned ou Feb. 25, 1802, under com mand of Lieutenant John L. Worden, U. S. N. Twelve officers and 45 enlist ed men comprised her personnel. Chief Engineer A. C. Stimers, tbo superin tendent of construction, went to sea in tho vessel to olservo her performance and give tho officers thu benefit of l:ii knowledge. He was, as stated by Colo nel VV. C. Church in his "Life of John TJricsson," "tho only man on board who thoroughly understood tlie characteris tics of the vessel." The voyage to Hampton Roads wai eventful, and almost ended the career of the Monitor, and with it tbo fate of ironclads for on indefinite time. Rough weather wa3 euco'interud, rnd water broke over the smoko and blower trunks, nearly putting out the rims and stopping the pumps from lack of steam for four or five hours on one occasion. Loss by foundering was imminent at this time, because of the great quantity of water that got into the vessel under the base of the turret and through the hawso pipes. The bickers stopped because the belts got wet and the engine and fire rooms tiled with noxious gas from the fires and hud to be abandoned. In try ing to remedy this trouble the chief en gineer, Mr. Newton, and his assistants were overcome by the gas and were car ried to the top of the turret, where they revised, though they were thought dead when dragged out of the engine room. Trouble and danger also resulted from the wheel ropes jumping off the steer ing wheel and becoming jammed. After two days of toil and peril the Monitor escaped from the dangers of the sea into the presence of a new cue my. Late in the afternoon of March $ she passed in at the capes of Chesapeake, and from tho sound of shotted gut:s knew that her time for action had como thus early in her career. The Merrimao was abroad that very afternoon, and wreck and destruction fouled her wake. A rude improvised ironclad herself, she marked a new era in naval warfare, and before her lay a large fleet of supposedly formidable chips of war as helpless as a flock of sheep assailed by a wolf. Night fell before the Monitor came up to the seemingly doomed Union fleet in Hampton Roads. The Merrimao had glutted her thirst for blood for the day and was at anchor and at rest, but in her silence in presence of the ships that she meant to attack in the morning 6he stood for all that men understand by the dominion of the seas. Lighted by the burning wreck or the irigate t.on cress, the Monitor moved up toward Newport News and anchored near the stranded .Minnesota, upon wnicn vessel, it was certain, the first blow of the morrow would fall. From either a historical or a tbeat rical point of view the stage settings were now complete. With tnenigns me curtain bad fallen upon the last of a long series of glorious deeds, performed nnder an order of seamanship or so tactics that had already long passed its meridian, but which for romanco ana chivalry excelled any that bad preceded it, and, it must be admitted, excelled that which was now to rudely supplant it. A new type of sea warrior and a new tvoe of warship were about to ap peal upon the waters. The engineer's machine of John Ericsson was to face tb fabric that represented the engineer ing Incennitv of the American soutn, nnd the result of the encounter would inflict fricht ntion the romance of the sea and transform the masted navies of the world into useless relics in a day. F. M. Bennet, U. S. N., in Cassier's Magazine, Her Impressions of Angeli. The wife of a well known senator took her little daughter, a 4-year-old damsel, to a matinee once to see "Jack and the Beanstalk." A week or so aft erward she was discovered pirouetting and lifting her petticoats before a che val glass. Her father reproved ber and told ber it wasn't a pretty way to do. "Why," said the child, "I 6aw the angels do it." "The angels!" exclaimed her father. "Why, where?" " When mamma and I went to heaven that day," said the child. The father explained that the fancied heaven was only the theater. The little girl's face fell. . - And wasn't they angels?" she asked. "No," said the father; "they were jnst girls." . , , . .

Carl Hertz, the well known conjurer, once entertained a company at a friend'i nouse by performing some of his clever est tricks. One of the parlor maids, who had been passing cups, cakes, glasses ana so on, was much interested. and when the hostess gave a sign that nothing more was needed the girl still lingered to see the completion of the trick just begun. "Will some one oblige 'me with a heavy shawl or cloak?" Hertz said. "Now," he went on, selecting a big cashmere shawl, "you observe the thick ness of the shawl?" They all did, in cluding the maid at the door. "Now, will one of you be good enough to write a number of three figures on a piece of paper, being careful not to let me see what is written?" One of the ladies did so, while the maid at the door leaned forward and began to breathe hard. "Now place tho written paper, with the figures on the upper side, under the sbawl as I hold it." It was done, the thickness of the shawl being between Hertz and the paper as he looked down toward it. There was breathless silence. Then he said, "Surely the number is 761." It was. He bad apparently seen right through the thick shawl. Every one was aniazed. Then upon tho silence broke the shriek of the maid at tho door. With one final gazo at tho shawl and one at tho handsome conjurer she hid her rosy face in her bauds, yelling at tho top of ber voice, "What s the good of me clothes?" and fled. Argonaut. A Man of System. A newspaper man of 6ome celebrity as a disciplinarian was noted about his ofllco for tho extremo disorder of his own desk. Though insisting upon methodical habits on the part of his employees, he gave his own pigeonholes a cleaning out and sorting over only once a year, and his regular time for doing this, oddly enough, was Wash ington's birthday. It happened one year nevertheless that ho forgot to perform this task at tho proper time, and a friend who hap pened in at his office on the morning of Feb. 23 was surprised at finding him surrounded by his usual hopeless litter of letters and papers. "How does this happen, Mr. ?" he asked. "Forgot it," shortly answered the editor. "Well, you're going to clean things up today, aren't you?" "No, sir," was the reply. "That job goes over, under the rules, for another year. Yon don't suppose I am going to set an example of irregularity to the boys, do you? Not much I" And he cleared away a space on hia desk and began writing an editorial on the tariff. 'Youth's Companion. CAMP M'CALLA LIFE. The Awkward Orderly. A young wag of an officer, making a morning call upon his superior in the latter's tent, found him sound asleep, perhaps a little the worse for a night's tarrying over the flowing bowl. The officer was tall, and the cot was short, so that his feet 6tuck out at the foot of the bed. Instead of waking him the visitor took tho spurs from a pair of boots rtanding by the bedside, strapped them to the sleeper's ankles and went away. The officer had pretty well lacerated himself about tho shins and ankles be fore be woko up and instantly yelled to his orderly. "What do you mean by this?" he screamed to the latter, pointing to his feet, which were scarred and bleeding. The orderly looked at the spurs in consternation. "I'll forgive you this time, for you did it in tho dark," said the officer, "but the next time you yank my boots and socks off so quick that it leaves my spurs on I'll give you ten days in the guardhouse, do yon hear?" New York World. Queer Fishe. Amphibious fishes are to be found in various quarters of the globe. Uegin-nii-i? in Eurooe. there is the blenny, which, when kept in aquariums, has been proved to require at least an hour's pure air out of water to preserve is in good health and spirits. In the tropics is fo id the periopbthalnius, which is singularly amphibious and hops over the muddy flats in search or rood, nota bly the crabs and mollusks left stranded hv tha retreating tide. This fish is so active on land that it is difficult to catch, and various specimens brought from Mauritius were secured by means of atahotgun truly a unique method of killing fish. This fish is also found at Ceylon, and it is noticeable lhat when chased they prepare to escape by land rather than by water; they really seem to appreciate the sport. Chicago news. Nothing Wm Lent.

Well Prepared Mow to Repulse Any Span ish Attack, He Says A London Corre spondent's Opinion of Our Regulars A Good Word For Cuban Patriot In Camp. Joseph F. R. Boniface of Company C, First battalion of the marine corps, now at Camp McCalla, has written an interesting letter under date of June 29 to his father, John K. Boniface of South 6treet, Morristown, N. J. In part the letter is as follows: "Dear Father I received your let ters last night, along with many more, altogether 11, and 10 newspapers, and have so much reading matter on hand I scarcely know which way to turn. But I hastily looked over the headlines of them all and read the accounts of us, and they are true in every particular, especially the one referring to our hill fight. So yon can rely on it and get the news from one to six days earlier than I could possibly send it to you. I would like you to save clippings of everything you see in any paper about tho marine corps. I am myself proud of tho corps. We did not know when we landed that the Spaniards were hurrying ro-enforco- ments hero, expecting that the army of occupation would commence operations hero. We builded better than we knew. And whilo trainloads of Spaniards were killed by tho shells from the ships we littlo knew that Santiago was supply ing them. You read of Lieutenant Mc- Gill's capturo of tho heliograph. Well, they twice signaled for ro-enforccmcnts with that, and they camo, but tho pres ence of our warships no doubt saved tho day. "Two of our men have becomo do- ranged, one from fright and worry; tho other from overheating. Every day wo are compelled to cut brush and burn it for our own protection, and that is very hot work. I suppose you must have been very anxiously awaiting word. In fact, I have no idea of how you felt. You see, I felt secure, or at least protected by the unseen Band, and so had no fear. To say tho least, it is an indescribablo sensation that of being under firo. First, you don't 6how your head, or rather you dodge bullets, a wholly use less operation ; then you don t care, and finally stand up and hammer away. I think you had best eagerly scan the pa pers for engagements, and I will follow up with particulars as soon as possible, although some of the best war corre spondents in the world are right here with us. The correspondent of the Lon don papers says he has seen many a fight, in every clime, but the utter abandon and perfect calm with which our regulars met the enemy at Santiago was something entirely new to himJ He says our skirmish line there is five miles long, composed of 15,000 men. Ships are continually coming and going be tween here and Santiago, and wo get those daily bulletins printed on the New York which keep us well informed. "The Spanish prisoners are working in colliers, and seem to enjoy their work. The magnanimity of the Ameri cans amazes them after what they have heard, and they beg to be allowed to work for their food, and so they do night and day. I think myself that many a poor, deliided man is hero against his wilL They told our men through an interpreter that when draft ed they were told they would have plenty to eat here, nothing to do. and when they came homo they would get their pay and a fine farm. "There was no need of money hero, they said, as they could get nil they wanted without paying for it a very bad thing for them, as their officers drew all clothing, rations, money and pay. You can easily 6eo what chances there are for the poor privates. "The Cubans get supplies of fruit, oranges, melons and bananas from the opposite shore in small quantities, and, oh, how good maay a thing would taste I "The situation may have been un duly emphasized. We are able to keep the greasers at bay, if not to carry on the offensive, and each day sees us bet ter prepared. Our chooka-chook gun, or sewing machine, as we call it, firing the same bullets as our rifles and about 200 a minute and sounding exactly like a sewing machine, and our ships and field pieces more than give the dagoes the needles, although if they had modern artillery and efficient officers and artil leristswhich they haven't they could make us break camp. We have put up seven tents for each company's use late ly, but so many of us are needed for outposts, picket duty, sentinels, patrols, etc., that none of them are in much de mand. "I think I rather misjudged the Cu bans at Key West. These are a gener ous, brave people, and 4 Viva los Ameri canos 1' is heard as often as 'Viva Cuba I' and is given as lustily. There is some talk here of getting publio lands from the Cuban government. I will certainly put in application for a farm and min' eral claim if such a thing is dono. I be lieve a fortune lies down hero in these hills. Tiio Carnegie company has iron mines at Santiago, and if 1 they believe in tho country thero must be something very valuable here. So you see my lit tle studies in mineralogy may be of 6om'e use after all." New York Sun. The Cristobal Colon. It is a curious instance of the irony of history that at the close of the first great naval battle between the United States and Spain in the waters of the new world thero should have been left battered and stranded upon the Cuban coast a great war vessel named in honor of the discoverer whom Ferdinand and Isabella sent out to 2nd that very island and this huge destined hemisphere. And should it prove possible, as Commodore Schley believes it is, to save the Cristo bal Colon and to add her to the United States navy as a retributive namesake of the sunken Maine the coincidence TVould be doubly rtranse. PhilxdelphU Record. . . ETYMOLOGY OF "HURRAH." Mr. Spmtley Says That We Get It From Ancient Egypt. W. J. Spratley, to uso his plain Eng lish name, has favored us with a copy of a letter he has addressed to The In stitute and Lecturers' Gazette on the etymology of the word "Hurrah!" which Mr. Spratley spells "Hoorahl" We have been vaguely cherishing the idea that it had a Russian origin, but Mr. Spratley takes us to ancient Egypt in his etymological search. He thinks "thero can be no doubt that the Egyptian soldiers went into battle to the inspirit ing cheer of 'HooRa I HooRal HooRal " and if the average questioning man asks why, he staggers him with this: "Be cause Hoolla (in tho tongue of the Thothmes and Ramescs) means 'The king, the king, the king I Yea, more. As 'Ra' means not only king, but also God and man, the concentrated meaning cf the cry would be, 'For God, king and country 1' What more loyal, what more patriotic, what more devout?" What, indeed! But lest we should haply still doubt, Mr. Spratley clinches the matter by cit ing, in corroboration, the fact that his name, in Egypitfan roots, is Sa-pa-Ra-ta-y, or Sa-pa-IIoo-Ra-ta-y, which means "Son of heaven, king of tho two hemispheres," and if the authority of a gentleman of this descent is not good enough for tho mere doubter, even Mr. Sa-pa, etc., may well despair of convincing him. Moro than this, if Mr. Spratlcy's Egyptian namo means any thing and this is an omi question it also signifies "King of lower Eiyptand king of upper Egypt," or "Emperor of tho World." But what wo chiefly liko it for is that it seems to settlo an other point that may well have bafiled tho philologist namely, tho genesis of tho once familiar refrain "la-ra-ra-boom-do-ay. " Is it possiblo that Miss Lottie Collins and tho street urchin have been singing ancient Egyptian, as Mr. Jourdain ppoko prose, without knowing it? London Chronicle. Speaker Reed's Autograph. The Kennebec (Me.) Journal says that when autograph hunters ask Speaker Heed for his signature he writes it rather hastily, and it is simply T. B. Reed. If the pen does not markplainly, the speaker does not always take pafris- to dip it anew, provided there ia tv scrawl and all tbe letters are visible. Not so when tbe oblong forma cC parchment are banded to him from tne committee on enrolled bills, of which. Representative Hager of Iowa is chair man.

The ink is dipped from a bottle that; sits within a silver tray, which hast come down from th time when Henry Clay was speaker of tbe bouse of repre sentatives. Then the signature is care fully blotted, tbe precious parchment is carried to the senate and eventually finds its way to tho state department,, where it is stored among the archive.
