He sei dom referred to his affliction, and never sought pity. He had a good sharp of humor, which perhaps ae counts for his happy faculty of mak lng friends, who were glad to serve as eyes for him. For fifteen years Lieutenant Holman traveled almost constantly. He visited Brazil, Chile, the west coast of Africa, Barbary, South Africa, Madagascar. Zanzlbar, Mauritius, India, China, Singapore and Java. Space prevents making even a catlogue of these brave voyages. Although often exposed to grave perils and repeatedly in the po^er of robbers and savages, he came safely back from every Journey, His most notable adventure, indeed, Va ' a! *bands of tho Rusnian an thorltles, while In Siberia. Traveling leisurely from city to city, he had reached the distant northern town of Irkut.sk. In tho winter of 1823. Mis character and the objects of this trav ehj had been abundantly certified in his passport and letters of Introduc tlon to Russian officials. * But now suspicion that he was an English spy, or some kind of soy In disguise, appears to have entered the minds of the Czar and his ministers, Immediately an aide-de camp, or mes sengt r of the Czar, was sent to appre bend the blind traveler and conduct him to the frontier of the empire. The aide-de-camp—a young officer named Alexis Kolovin—arrived by sledge at Irkutsk cn January 10th, when the temperature was twenty de grees Fahrenheit below s*ro.

Hardly less wonderful than the atory of Helen Keller Is that of James Holman, the blind traveler. Not even the celebrated Baron von Humboldt traveled so far, visited so many dis tant countries. Eighty years ago, too, when Holman lived, travel **s vastly more difficult and perilous than now. At an early age James Holman had entered the English navy a» a mid shipman. For several years his ship was with the squadron at Halifax, Nova 8cotia. In 1807 he was promoted to be a naval lieutenant Three years later there befell him a severe illness, accompanied by an acute inflammation of the eyea, which resulted In complete loss of sight Thus, almost in a day, an ambitious officer found every plan and ardent hope of hla youth faded ont In dark ness. For a time grief and despair quite overcame him; he would gladly have died. King George III, In whose service lie met with hla misfortune, n*<de him a knight of Windsor, and gave him some nominal duties at court, with a pension. Afterward, when the natural buoy ancy of youth had revived, the Inac tivity and aimlessness of life at Wind sor Castle preyed spirits and seriously affected his health. He obtained leave of absence, took a two years' course of study at Edinburgh University, and then form ed the bold plan of making a European tour In search of health and Informa tion. AH arguments failed to move i him, and to the consternation of his friends, he set off entirely alone to feel his way In the dark through strange lands. What rendered such an undertaking still more difficult was the fact that at first he could not speak French, German or Italian. But hla Indomit able will, his resourcefulness, and a happy faculty of making friends, car ried him through successfully, and he returned In triumph to tell of two years' wanderings In France. Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Holland. Ho wrote a narrative of his travels, which proved Interesting enough to his contemporaries to go through cral editions. gold « Sea, Balk hi and Kamchatka after the rigors of the winter had abated. The gov ernor and military officers at Irkutsk were his warm friends. Mis genial manners made him a favorite in so ciety. But now came the aide-de-camp with an imperial order to escort him to the Austrian frontier, In the coldest period of the Siberian winter, when fur clad Russians hesitated to make even the briefest trip out of doors. In vsln the blind traveler remon strated and begged for delay. "You are compelled," was the gov ernor's relustant reply. This Inhuman order, too, had ar rived when Holman's funds were for the time being nearly exhausted; and the order expressly stipulated that he must bear the entire expense of the enforced Journey himself.. He and the officer set off on the morning of January 19th, In bitter Wind, against which tho hood and curtain of the sledge offered an In sufficient protection. The Russian wished to make a record ,for celerity In executing his commission. If he could reach Petersburg again within a ceriain number of days, he woul be sent on an important mission to Paris. Three horses were attached abreast to the telega, and the officer ordered the driver to put them at a gallop, although the snow was to their knees. This rate of traveling was kept up hour after hour. The suffer ings of the horses so touched the heart of the driver at last that he disobeyed the repeated commands of Kolovin to lash them forward. There upon the latter stopped the sledge and gave tho driver thirty blows with the steel scabbard of his saber. After fifty versts two of the horses fell from exhaustion. One of them expired In the snow and was left be hind. For each horse thus cruelly disabled and abandoned to the wolves the blind traveler was obliged to pay fifty rubles. On the first day they were upset three times, and during the ensuing night the horses fell over the steep side of a mountain; but the sledge was saved from destruction by logs which had been set up beside tho way as a railing. On the second night, while career ing at full speed down the side of another mountain, they ran over the sledge of a peasant who was ascend ing the slope. Again the telega was overturned, and the three horses be came almost inextricably entangled with tho.e of tho other ttletise. After ardttou. effort. In the bitter ._. .. wind and snow, the horses were disen „ . . . . . tangled and compelled to get up; but . - „ „ _t u , before resuming their way Kolov n _ . , beat the peasant with his saber un ... . mercifully, although It was not easy I . to say how the poor man had been to blame. Owing to tho hpadlong and violent manner of traveling, breakdowns of tho sledge were of almost daily occur rence and caused many hours of delay, j over which Kolovin became furious. His chief solace for all those en forced halts lay in beating the hap less driver, who fell Into such a piti able state of t<*rror as to be unable properly to guide the horses, since he was continually looking back over his shf elders In expectation of a blow from the hard scabbard of the officer. All the while the cold was so In tense that Kolovin's Kalmuck vant, who was obliged to sit beside the driver in front, often became so benumbed that he had to be earried from the «ledge to the heated plat form over the Russian 3toves in the post-stations. Both his feet were bad ly frozen. Of his clothing Holman sa.vs, "I wore two pairs of woolen stockings, with two pairs of fur hoots which came above my knees, the inner ones made of the skin of the wild goat, tho outer ones of leather, lined with fur and having thick soles. Added to these, my legs were enveloped in a thick fur cloak. Independent of my ordinary clothing I also wore a thick ly wadded greatcoat, and over that an Immense shube. made of the skins of wolves, while my head was protect ed by a large wadded cap." In short, they wore all the clothing that they could move about in. but even this was insufficient to withstand the deadly chill. Thus they went on night and day to Krasnoyarsk. Tomsk. Ekaterinburg, Kazan, and finally, on March 18th, reached Moscow. Not once in all this prodlgous Journey of two months had the traveler been able to lie down in an ordinary bed. It was one constant forward rush of galloping horses; and the sledge had been overturned more times than they could remember, It will hardly be thought strange that Holman's condition on reaching Moscow was so bad that rest and. proper food were imperatively nec essary. He had fallen Into a fever, *nd was so shaken that he could hardly stand. They would not permit him to see his friends at Moscow un less ln th« presence of the police, or »How him to converse In English with "I one. The doctor whom he summoned en Joined rest and quiet; but the gover nor ordered him to go on the next day, and *ent the chief of police to corn munlcate the mandate. Holman re fused to start so soon. "I am too un w ell." he replied, The chief of police sent for the doc tor and asked him severely If It was not possible for his patient to travel. "It I« poRfilbl<\'' rcplk-d tlu* doc:or, "hut It ts not advisable, "If he carries his medicines with him he cannot suffer much!" exclaim * d the chief. "He is very unwell," the doctor ven tured to say. "The weather Is fine. It Is Impos sible that It can hurt him, the chief. Then James Holman, blind, ill and »lone, put his down and defied the authorities of the Russian empire. "I cannot and will not go," he said, "I don't see what prevents!" cried the chief of police, angrily. * fou are well-clothed. If you rub your hands and face the cold will not Injure you.

Not one was taken pris oner, the authorities conceded the point grudgingly, and the hapless traveler remained at the capital for four days. The enforced Journey was then re sumed, and Holman was at last turned adrift at Krakow. He was never able to learn why sus picion had fallen upon him. months afterward a Russian official Intimated to Holmaa that if he would again apply for permission to travel In the empire, It wDuld be granted. But be had had quite enough of Rus sia.—Youth's Companion. a of in st or of his of ed of of so all ton A few Tha First Minnesota at Gettyaburg. The recent dedication of the monu ment, Flrat Minnesota Regiment at Gettysburg, has called public atten tion to the fact that there are in his tory charges quite as terrible, interpid and bloody as that of Balaklava, made Justly famous by Tennyson, and tha^ the charge of the First Minnesota Regiment at Cemetery Ridge was one of them. On this occasion a breach had been left between the Union forces of Han cock and Sickles, and the Confeder ates advanced to lake advantage of it. The objective point was a battery which was covered by the First Min nesota Infantry. Reinforcements were on the way, but at the moment this regiment was the only one to stay the advance. Hancock, at the post of danger, looking over his little force of two hundred and sixty-two men, ex claimed to the leader: "What regiment is this?" "Tho first Minnesota. "Colonel," said the General, point ing to the enemy, "charge and take those colors. This was no blunder, like the order at Balaklava, but a desperate chance. The Minnesota advanced in splendid order against a force vastly greater than their own; they did not recoil un der a terrible fire that mowed them down; they hurled themselves on the run Into the enemy; they were literal ly swallowed up in the Confederate ranks. The line of the enemy was broken and fatally; for the move ments which Hancock had in tho »» • • meantime ordered succeeded in check ing the advance. After the fight was over, and tho Cemetery Ridge had been saved to the Union forces, the First Minnesota —"all that was left of them"—came back with the flag of Wilcox's Con federate brigade, which was the one that Hancock had ordered the regl But only forty The light brigade at Balaklara,con sisted of six hundred and seventy Of these all but one hundred and ninety-eight were killed or wound ed—a loss of about seventy per cent Tbe charge of the Minnesotans was the mere brilliant, only because it was more bloody, but because it ef fected its purpose.

The National Cemeteries. The Government has expended $9, 000,000 on the eighty-three national cemeteries, In which are buried 330, 700 honofed dead. The most of these cemeteries are situated on battlefields of the war, amid beautiful scenery. The.establishment of this system was begun in the second year of the war, when orders were issued to the army requiring accurate records to be kept of all deceased soldiers and their places of burial, and President Lin coln was authorized by Congress to purchase grounds and have them pre pared for use as cemeteries for sol diers dying in defense of the country. On the battlefields where the Union armies won, the Interments were so conscientiously made, that over nine ty per cent, of the dead were after ward identified. Where time permit ted, the Confederate dead were also scrupulously buried and their graves marked. In most of the Southern prisons the Union dead were buriel, and their names recorded by their living comrades, often under adverse and trying circumstances, and in Northern prisons, as at Camp Douglas, Chicago; at Elmira, N. Y., and at Johnson Island, Ohio, interments of deceased Confederates were carefully made and the graves noted for future identification. * In 1863 the first na tional cemeteries were established at Chattanooga, 8tone River and Gettys burg, and the one In Arlington wrs founded in 1864, and the one at Antle tam in 1865. Tbe most beautiful of all the national cemeteries, and the greatest as regards the number of identified dead, Is that on Arlington Heights, overlooking Washington. It contains 16,565 Interments—12,216 known and 4349 unknown. Of the national cemeteries at Shiloh necropo contains 3597 tablets and that at Gettysburg Just five less.

On the slightest hint from seer or fortune teller some one is sure to dig where the burled treasure is supposed to be, and disappointment does not discour age another attempt when another up" Is received. Very few bave ever come upon hidden treasure, and the few have found it unexpectedly. Take, for Instance, that romantic unearthing of 200,000 coins in the bed of tho River Dove, in Staffordshire, 72 years ago. Some workmen were engaged in removing a mudbank which had formed in 4he center of the river when one of them was amazed to find on raising his spade that It glistened with silver coins. Attracted by the digger's exclama tions of astonishment and delight, his fellow workmen hurried up, and In a moment half a dozen men were scrambling and fighting for the treas ure, feverishly filling their pockets, their hats and beer cans with silver coins, which were worth their weight In gold, for (they were of the time of the first two Edwards and had lain In the river for five hundred years. That the bulk of the treasure trove was ultimately claimed by the Duchy of Lancaster matters little, for Its finder had already appropriated scores of thousands of the precious disks. Only two years later a few village l>oy8 were playing at marbles on Sun day afternoon in a field near Bea worth, In Hampshire, when one of them caught sight of a piece of lead projecting from (the pasture. Tug ging at the strip of metal be disclosed a hole, and through the exposed open ing he saw a pile of glittering coins, bright as If fresh from the mint. To fill his pockets and those of his play mates was the work of a few mo ments, and so little did the young sters appreciate the value of their discovery that on their way home they amused themselves by flinging the coins into the village pond. Uutimately nearly seven thousand coins were recovered from the buried treasure chest, and they proved to be of the reigns of William I. and Wil liam II. and in a wonderful state of preservation. A similar discovery was made near Wethersby, In Yorkshire, when a heavy cart passing over a country road stuck fast in a rut, and on being released disclosed a number of silver coins, which bad escaped from the burst lid of a chest hidden under the roadway. It was assumed that the chest of coins had been buried there' in the perilous days of the civil war, and that the gradual sinking of the road and the weight of the passing cart had at last brought it again to the light of day. In the year 1846 a most valuable de posit of treasure was revealed in the st rangeât fashion at Cuerdale, near Preston, in Lancashire. Some labor ers were digging near the banks of the River Kibble when the pickaxe of one of (hem struck something harder than earth and more yielding than rock. On removing-his pick he found transfixed at the end of It a large in got of silver. Plying his tool with re newed vigor he soon discovered wealth consisting of scores of silver Ingots weighing in all over 1,000 ounces. Similar fortune befell a couple of laborers who were digging in a ditch near Glastonbury, In Somersetshire, when they unearthed an ancient obest full of coins of the days of the Stuarts. They took samples of the coins to a neighboring antiquary of wealth, who greatly pleased, purchased a score or more acres of land adjacent to the lucky ditch. And here the Irony of fortune is well Illustrated, for al though the antiquary spent thousands of pounds In buying and excavating his land, not a single coin was dls- covered beyond those which a stroke of the spade bad revealed. This is* the kind of trick fortune loves to play on designing man. Not very many years ago, when the thatch ed roof of an ancient cottage near Rl pon was removed a rich nest of five guinea gold pieces was discovered bidden away under it. When the news of this treasuretrove came to the ears of a neighboring land owner he was so fired by the lust of gold that he forthwith purchased a dozen similar cottages In the district and had them all pulled down, but not a solitary coin was found In exchange for the $3,000 the experiment cost him.—Bos ton Transcript • • CAPTURING GIBRALTAR. How the English First Obtained the Famous Stronghold. In connection with the interesting experiments recently carried out by the Channel Squadron to test the boasted Impregnability of Gibraltar, it is worth recalling the circumstances of the comparatively easy cajMure of the celebrated fortress from the Span iards. This feat had been deemed impossi* ble by even the lion hearted Blake, but in 1704 Admiral 8ir George Rooke, as sisted by Sir Cloudesley Shovel, de termined to make the attempt. A council of war was held on July 17, and on the 21st a combined An glo-Dutch fleet of sixty ships entered the bay. * As a preliminary operation, 1,800 marines, unler the Prince of Hesse Darmstadt, were, landed on the Isth mus which connects the Rock with the mainland, and thus Isolated the garrison. A summons to surrender was then sent to the Spanish governor, who re plied that he would bury himself and the girrison beneath the ruins rather than surrender the post Intrusted to him by his royal master. The British commander forthwith completed bis preparations for the attack, ml at daybreak oq July oommenced what was perhaps tue most tremendous cannonade witness ed up till that time. It was Computed that in five hours 1,500 shots were fired on the fortifica tions, and the Spaniards were driven from the South Mole batteries. Boats were at once ordered out to seize these, they forming the key to the position, and this operation was promptly performed by Captains Whit aker, Hicks and Jumper, of the Not tingham, Yarmouth and Lenox. ' The retreating Spaniards, however, had mined the place, with the result that two officers and forty men were killed and sixty wounded. The gallant seamen, undismayed, made good their hold, and advancing stormed a strong redoubt between the Mole and the town, thus completely hemming in the garrison.- Admiral Rooke then sent In a second summons and the governor surrendered with the honors of war. . The capture of this world-famous fortress cost the victors the compara tively small loss of sixty killed and 225 wdunded, and from that day on ward the British ensign has floated over the "Rock. The French and Spaniards made desperate and repeated attempts to recapture Gibraltar during the years 1780-81-82, the garrison at one period being beleagured for six months, but British fleets on each occasion success fully effected relief. On of a of a *» DROWNING IS A QUICK DEATH. For Man Can't Live Under Water More Than Two Minutes. Tho story frequently repeated about professional divers who have been able to romain under water for over two minutes Is silly," Dr. Joseph Boehm tells me. "No man can remain under water that long without drown ing, whether they are trained divers or not. At Navarlno, where the sponge divers are reported to be able to remain under water three and four minutes, tests were made recently, and resulted In conclusively proving that nome of them remained down a3 long as>a minute and a half. Ninety seconds seems a very long time to the watcher on shore, and It is about tho limit of a diver's endurance under water. At Ceylon, where time tests were also made among tho famous pearl divers, it was ascertained that few of them remained below the sur face as long as a minute, and other tests made on the Red Sea among the Arabs proved that a minute and a quarter was the longest they could endure without a fresh breath. "On the coast of England several years ago a diver, a trained diver, one of the best on the coast, renown ed for bis endurance, went down and was pulled up so slowly when he gave the signal that he was under water about two minutes and five seconds. He waa drawn out of the water insen sible, with blood flowing from his nose and. ears, and It was only after long and arduous worlc that his recov ery from the effects of that two-mln ute stay under water was assured. Drowning Is a quick death. Even though the water Is kept out of the lungs, Insensibility will ensue In one minute and complete unconsciousness In two. .The stories of people who have been In the water five minutes being resuscitated are generally mis takes or untrue. A man could not be in tbe water five minutes without coming to the surface several times and be restored to life."—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. «« HAWK, DEAD, CLUNG TO BRANCH. Man's Strength Required to Release Grip of the Talons. George M. Lee, engineer of the Farmington River Power Company at its Tarlffville power station, was look ing out across the Farmington River from a window in the power house one day last week when he saw a big hawk light on one of the topmost branches of a tree about 200 yards away. Mr. Lee took from Its rack a Lee navy rifle of the pattern of which bis father, the late James Pari3h Lee, was the Inventor. Returning to thi window Mr. Lee took sight and fired The hawk fluttered and changed po sition somewhat, but as It did not fall, Mr. Lee thought at first hf had made a poor shot and missed. He started to sight for a second shot, when he realized that if his shot had not taken effect the hawk would cer tainly have flown away after the loud report. Mr. Lee's assistant crossed the river to the tree, but the hawk never stirred from Its perch on the treetop. Com pletely mystified, the man then climb ed the tree. He found the hawk hang ing head downward, its talons still encircling the branch on which It *was perched when Mr. Lee fired. The tendons of the hawk's legs were rigid and It required all the man's strength to release tbè claws from the branch. The bullet, which was of only .22 calibre, had cut a clean hole through the hawk's neck, killing It instantly. But the hawk's grip on its perch had grown rigid instead of relaxing at death and tSfe body simply old the giant swing" around the branch, much as an athlete would around a horizontal bar, except that the hawk's body did not complete the circle.
