Much has been said and written
about this beautiful and fascinating

no doubt, to find more perfectly fault

the woman who united so many per

and sympathetic eyes, the radiant
smile, the glorious mass of quite gold
en hair, the slope of the graceful shoul

toilet as exquisite as Parisian taste
could conceive, united to make a per
fection that seemed to eclipse and ut

other woman present, although there

They Are the Marti Fish Market nnd tho
Tacon Theatre, and They Were Built
Under Strange Condition* by a Notori
ous Contrabandist—Bis Bargain.
There are two structures in the city
of Havana said to be without a paral
lel in ail the world. These are the
Marti Fish Market and the Tacon
The former is a building between
one hundred and fifty and two hundred
feet long. The roof is supported by
huge arches which rest on marble pil
lars. Through the entire length of the
centre extends a broad counter of
white marblo. One side of the struc
ture is open to the street and the op
posite side to the harbor. The history
of its origin is not the least interest
ing incident connected with it.
Early in the thirties of the present
century, the greatly commended and
severely criticised Tacon wielded the
Spanish power in the island of Cuba.
With great energy ho attempted to
correct abuses from which tho island
suffered. One of the most flagrnnt
which met his notice was the whole
sale smuggling carried on in the port
of Havana under the very nose of the
port officials. There was a duty of ten
dollars a barrel on flour brought into
the island, and many other articles
were highly taxed, so that a very com
fortable living offered itself to anyone
daring aud cunning enough to run the
risk of smuggling. Tho numerous
bays and finely protected harbors of
the West Indies afforded shelter for
the swift craft of the smugglers.
Tacon determined that stopped it
should be, nnd that at onoe. So, com
manding the presence of the officers of
the fleet, he gave orders that the long,
lazy corvettes in the harbor should
hoist sail aud proceed at once upon a
search among the bays aud straits
surrounding the island for the haunts
of the outlaws.
Four months passed, and in spite
of his vigorous efforts there was not
the least abatement of tho evil.
Cargoes of smuggled goods were
landed in broad daylight under the
very guns of Morro Castle. Tacon
was only wiser to the extent that ho
had learned the smugglers were led
by a bold, daring fellow called Marti.
All indications pointed to tho fact
that Marti was an unusual man, pos
sessing marked executive ability, great
power over his associates and wonder
ful cleverness in personal adventure.
A high reward had been offered to tho
person who would deliver him, dead or
alive, at the Governor's palace.
By occupation he was supposed to
be a lishermau, and might often have
beeu seen on one of the million smacks
that plied betweeu Yucatan, Florida
and Havana. His ability to adapt
himself to masquerade permitted his
frequent undetected visits among tho
Government officials, by which means
he kept himself informed of every de
tail in their plans against him aud his
One cloudy evening near midnight,
a tall, commanding figure, wrapped in
a military cloak, lurked in tho shadow
of tho gate post at the Governor's
palace. Carefully and deftly stealing
his way, aided by the shadow of the
wall, he reached the marble steps.
Ascending the broad marble Btairway,
ho entered the apartment of the Gover
nor, whom he found writing at a
Looking up with contracted brows,
Tacon demanded:
"Who enters here unannounced.and
at this hour?"
Giving tho military salute, the
stranger replied:
"Excellency, I am here on business
of great import to tho Government."
"How came you past the guard?"
"Never mind that, Excellency,
I "
"But I do mind," interrupted the
Governor, growing impatient for an
explanation of this extraordinary visit.
But the wily visitor made a judi
cious, calm reply that warded off fur
ther explanation, aud proceeding cau
tiously, succeeded in gaining con
firmation from the Governor's own lips
that he had not only offered a free par
don to anyone who would turn State's
evidence and reveal tho haunt 3 and
doings of the contrabandists, but that
ho had offered a largo reward for any
information whatever concerning them
—a double reward to anyone who
would deliver up their leader. He so
guardedly and skilfully conducted the
conversation that ho gave no clew to
his own identity until, having bound
the Governor by his honor as a
kuight, ho told him that he knew his
character well, and that ho would ful
fil his promises. He then announced
himself as Captain Marti, saying he
wai ready to fulfil to the letter his
part of the contract.
Unconsciously he reached for his
pistol. Mnrti, noticing this, took his
own from his bolt, and laying them on
the table, said:
"Heuceforoe I havo no use for these.
Hereafter my weapon is to bo diplo
Tacon found himself in the ridicu
lous position of huving granted a freo
pardon to the man upon whose head
ho himself had set a goodly price. He
could not but admire the shrewdness
of this follow.
The exchange ola few more words
brought about the understanding be
tween tho two that Marti should be
placed in confinement over night*, his
name concealed, and that in the morn
ing he should start as pilot on a ves
sel that should be guidod to the ren
dezvous of tho smugglers. The ex
pedition was made. No human being
was found anywhere, while unmistak
able uigns of very recent habitation by
the outlaws were manifest every
where. A few small ships and their
cargoes, amounting to very little,
were captured; but that was all. Tho
Governor was satisfied that the haunts
were made known, and no one else
inquired very closely into the matter.
On the return of the expedition
Tacon was about to pay to Captain
Marti the promised reward, when the
latter interrupted him with a peculiar
proposition. He said he was im
mensely wealthy, and cared not for
money, while the treasury of Cuba
was poor. He proposed that, instead
of the reward, to him should be
granted a monopoly of the fish trade
of Havana, and that he bo permitted
to employ his contrabandists as fish
ermen. In tho event of such a grant
he promised to build the finest fish
market in the world, and at the end
of twenty-five years to return his
privilege of monopoly and the fish
market to the Government.
Taeon accepted the proposition,
seeing in it his opportunity to hold
control over Marti. And for a quarter
of a century the Havana market was
supplied with the finest of fish caught
by smugglers, absolutely safe from
the law in all that they did.
This monopoly filled to overflowing
the already well-supplied purse ol
Marti, aud he looked about him for
another investment for his money. He
conceived tho idea of a theatre mon
opoly, somewhat on the plan of hij
fish market. He communicated with
Taeon, who granted him the privilege
for twenty years, 011 condition thai
the building be made the largest ol
the kind ia the world and named
Danger In Poaching.
No offenders against the British law
are punished so severely os the poacher.
The fields and the woods of all Eng
land are now overrun with game. Hares
are as plentiful a3 flies almost, while
partridges, pheasants aud the like are
so numerous as to be in some places
actual pests. Yet they are not for the
laborer, or the plowman, or the rus
tic of low degree. Should some poor
cottager, with larder lean nnd pocket
empty, steal out at nightfall to a spot
where he knew hares were feeding,
aud making his way through a field
gate or through some well known open
ing in the hedge, fire and kill a single
hare, he makes himself liable to prose
cution for trespass, for carrying a guu
without a license, aud for having game
in his possession unlawfully. If it
should happen that he is near tho
highway when the shot is fired, he ia
also liable to bo prosecuted on the
charge of firing a gun ia proximity to
the public road. If he is arrested
there is no escape from long imprison
ment in tho jail.
It is this stigma that turned poach
ing over to the moral delinquents of
the parish, although tho "amateur
poacher" is still to he found in every
neighborhood—some sport-loving.rus
tic of good name and standing from
whom the rigor of the law aud the dis
grace that would follow detection have
failed to drive the fascination of a
night spent among the rabbit runs and
hare paths. Tho amateur poacher is
au eager spirit, aud he argues that a
law which declares that the love of ad
venture in the field and a genius for
woodcraft are criminal when possessed
by those unfavored by birth or for
tune, is a law against a higher law of
nature, and one against which it is no
crime to wage war.—New York Sun.
"Pouring Oil on Troubled Waters.'*
Lieutenant Charles M. McCarteney
writes an article on "Ocean Storms"
for St. Nicholas. In desoribing the
great hurricane off Nova Scotia on
August 29, 1891, Lieutenaut McCart
eney says:
The Indiana was kept dry by the
dripping of oil from both bows; aud
although tremendous seas were run
ning aud breaking, they could not
come on board.
This was certainly a most practical
illustration of the old saying as to the
"pouring of oil on troubled waters"—
a proverb as old as the Bible, but
only very roceutly applied, thanks to
the Hydrographio Office of the United
StateH, aud now very generally fol
lowed by scameu the world over. It
was an American also (Redfield) who
first thoroughly found out and ex
plained tho true character of these re
volving storms, and to him all seamen
are forever indebted.
In nsing oil, it is astonishing how
small a quantity will suffice—just a
quart or two, iu a hag stuffed with
oakum, linng over the bows, and al
lowed to drip, drop by drop, on the
sea, where it spreads out iu a thin,
greasy film over the surface of tho
water. Over the film the wind slips,
as it were, and has no power to bank
the water up into waves which would
break over the ship. Hundreds of re
ports are oa file in the office, attesting
the marvelous results of this simple
agent of safely.
Eyeglasses and Spectacles.
"You say you never wore spec
tacles?" said the near-sighted man.
"Well, if you ever put on a pair you'll
never wear anything else. I wore
eyeglasses for years. I thought they
looked better on me, aud then I im
agined that they were more conven
ient; that I could take them off aud
put them on more readily and all that.
But after wearing a pair of spectacles
once for a few days—l had put them
on, as I thought at first, temporarily
—I discovered that spectacles were
tho glasses for comfort.
"There are, to be sure, people who
do not wear glasses all the .time, but
only for reading or writing, aud soou,
to whom eyeglasses may be more con
venient; aud theu I believe tbut eye
glasses are made nowadays that have
more seieutifically adjusted grips, and
all that sort of thing; but I tell you
that the thing for roal comfort is
spectacles."—Now York Suu.

In the first day's lighting at the battle of
Gettysburg, SehifTeneder received a
wound in the right side, which afterward
caused him much trouble. With a portion
of his regiment bo was captured and im
prisoned at Bell Island and Aodersonvillc
and afterward exchanged. He returned t
his regiment, which was transferred to the
army of General Sherman, and marched
with him through Georgia to the sea.
In this campaign Mr. Sohiffenedor's old
wound began to trouble him and he was
sent to the hospital nad then homo. He
had also contracted catarrh of the stomach
and found no relief for years.
"I happened to read an account of Dr.
Williams' Pink Tills for Pale People about
a year ago," he said, "and thought that
they might be good for my trouble. I con
cluded to try them. I bought one box and
began to take them according to directions.
They gave me great relief. After finishing
that box I bought another, and when I had
taken the pills I felt that I was cured. I
recovered my appetite and ate heartily. I
can testify to the good the pills did me."
Mr. SehifTeneder is a prominent Grand

Death Is Resorted to Only In Extreme
Cases Except in War.
The systems of deciding the various
military punishments in the United
States is by court-martial. Certain offi
cers are appointed by the military au
thorities to hear the facta in the caso
and whatever defense the culprit may
care to make, explains the Philadel
phia Inquirer. When they have heard
all sides of the subject they decide
whether or not the prisoner deserves
punishment and of what kind it shall
he. The punishment used in the Am
erican army and navy are: Death,
confinement in the guard house or in
a military prison, hard labor (for some
of the worst offenses with ball and
chain), forfeiture of pay, dishonorable
discharge from the service and con
finement on bread and water, but the
latter cannot he for more than four
teen days at a time. If the culprit is
an officer, sergeant, corporal, etc, lie
may be reduced to the ranks. Death
Is seldom resorted to except in very
extreme cases, but in time of war this
mode of punishment is more frequent.
A soldier who falls asleep when on
picket duty and thus gives the enemy
a chance to surprise the camp may be
sentenced to be shot. Great cowardice
in battle may be punished in the same
way, and every boy knows that a spy,
if captured, is apt to be hanged. Sple9
are very dangerous to the welfare of an
army, and while being shot does not
seem so bad to some soldiers,, the
thought that death will come by hang*
ing is much dreaded. Desertion also
Is frequently punished in war time by
death. During our civil war if a sol
dier or sailor was caught stealing from
his comrades he was severely punished,
more so than he would have been had
be not been in the army. A novel way
cf punishing a coward was to march
him through the camp with a placard
bearing the word "coward" fastened
about the neck. The officer in charge
of a military prison once adopted
peculiar way of punishing a man who
tried to escape. The fellow found a
ladder and oce night placed it against
the wall of the prison. Intending to
climb over and get away. Ho was
caught, and the commander ordered
that for five hours he should climb up
the ladder and down again. The sol
dier laughed at the punishment, but
pretty soon his back began to grow
lame, and at the end of the five hours
he had to bo taken to the hospital. If
any of the boys who read this article
care to visit Governor's Island, or any
military station, he will see a number
cf men digging about the grounds,
wheeling dirt and stones and doing \e
work of a laboring man. These sol
diers are dressed in brown canvas suits,
and each has a large number fastened
upon his back; some among the num
ber may be wearing a chain about one
ankle, and a small cannon ball will be
fastened to one end of the chain. These
soldiers are being punished for fight
ing with their comrades, disobeying or
ders, or leaving the post without per
mission, or overstaying their leave of
absence. In both the American and
English service probably the worst
punishment next to being sentenced to
death is dishonorable discharge, when
the culprit loses not only his profes
sion, but is disgraced In the eyes of his
friends and acquaintances.
Helping Bankrupts to Hcgln Afrosti.
The bill which became a law In the
closing hours of Congress wns a com
promise on the Nelson bill in the Sen
ate, and the Torrey bill in the House.
It is the result of an agitation among
business men of more than fifteen
years' duration. The bill is quite lib
eral in its provisions, especially on the
terms of discharge. It is confidently
believed that this legislation will en
able from 150,000 to 200,000 bankrupts
to fu'ly re-establish themselves.
Furthermore, it will enable manufac
turers and merchants to securo a fair
division of their debtors' property, and
go a long way toward preventing em
bezzlement, fraud, and useless waste
of valuable property. It will be of
great assistance to the bankrupt who,

Central Methodist Church, of Mem
phis, Tenu., has a mascot. Now "a
mascot is a mascot" to begin with, but
this particular mascot is a wee tot of
three, probably four summers. She
is just a little dot of humanity that bo
longs to everybody ano to nobody.
She is no higher than the chancel rail,
but makes herself at home in the big
pulpit-chairs, in the pews, ou the or
ganist's seat, or any place where it
suits her fancy to be. Her name is
Nelle, and that i's all any one knows.
She goes to Sunday-school and to
church, and visits the neighbors with
the freedom of a Westerner who scorns
restraints and formalities. The people
in the neighborhood do not take kind
ly to her informal visits, but the Rev.
Dr. and Mrs. W. F. Hamner, the pas
tor and his wife, receive the little
stranger and treat her with much con
sideration. The result is she is very
fond of them, and shows her apprecia
tion in one very promising way. Little
as she is, she could give an "old salt"
some points on the modern methods
of swearing, but Dr. Hamner has told
her it is not nice to swear, and she
religiously refrains from swearing
when in his presence, and is his most
attentive listener during the sermon.
She may deliberately enter the pulpit
and climb up into one of the pulpit
chairs or sit on the step 3 of the chan
cel or stand on the chancel cushion
and rest her little chin in her hands
while her elbows rest on the rail and
she gazes intently at the speaker dur
ing half the service, but she hears
every word he says. The other day
she took her seat in the gallery anil
scattered rose leaves on the congrega
tion below. She horrifies the staid and
formal members of the congregation,
and more than one has tried to restrain
her and keep her in dignified bounds,
but they might as well have tried to
have restrained the sparrows of old
that built their nests in the altars, told
of in the Psalms. Like the average
woman, "when she wills she will, and
there is an end of it."
Nelle is a brown-haired maiden
whose straight locks her mother keeps
braided iu two tiny braids down her
back, or rather her neck. She is neat
ly dressed, and is sun-browned until
she is "brown as a berry." She speaks
with a foreign accent, ieading those
who do not know her parents to be
lieve she is either a descendant of the
American aborigines or of some Euro
pean nations, or may be of the isles of
the sea.
Bismarck's Intolerance of Authority.
By one of those strange contradic
tions which aro notuufreqnentin such
characters as Bismarck, this great
apostle of supreme and unquestioned
authority was always singularly in
tolerant of every kind of authority
himself. Ilis Saxon Bos well, Dr.
Moritz Busch, has chronicled with ad
miring minuteness the first Hashes of
that haughty aud indomitable spirit
which was oue (lay to trample in the
dust the pride of Austria aud of
France. Being called to account while
a student at Gottiugen for some breach
of university rules, Bismarck swag
gered into the presence of the horri
fied President, booted and spurred,
with a rakish student cap and a sorely
stained velvet jacket, an enormous
bulldog at his heels, aud a cudgel
worthy of Donnybrook Fair under his
arm. Later on, not long after he had
entered the Civil Service, a superior
official to whom he had to make a re
port began to drum carelessly on tbo
window pane with his fingers while
Bismarck was speaking. Tbo haughty
"Junker," determined not to bo out
done, deliberately walked to the other
window and struck up a louder tune
upon it. On another occasion, being
kept waiting for a considerable time
by one of these little great men, and
then curtly asked what he wanted, the
future Chancellor sternly replied, "I
came to ask for leave, but now 1 re
quest my dismissal." Such sallie* as
theso, coupled with his almost boyish
love of athletic feats, his reckless ex
posure of himsolf to all weathers, and
his wild gallops across country at the
imminent risk of his neck, earned him
the nickname of "Mad Bismarck,"
and made many prim old gentlemen
of tbe Metternich school shake their
empty heads over him as a wild,
harum-scarum lad who would come to
no good.—New York Times.
The Old .Tacky of the Navy.

vas as under steam, and so save money
for her owners. Then, besides, we
still cling to the old Jacky education.
"We teach knotting and splicing ropes,
aud loosing and reefing and furling sail,
and getting up and down yards and

apprentices, wlth the same gravity an l

ply cnuuot get rid of the idea that the
real difference between the sailorman
and the laud-lubber is, that the formei
has this information stored away
somewhere iu his noddle and the lat

it may be quite as useless for all prac
tical purposes to the oue as to tht
other.—New York Independent.

The Czarina's Health.
I Prom St. Petersburg come poor ae
! counts of the health of the Empress
I of Russia. Very little Is said about It,
j as the Tsar greatly objects to all ref
erences to the subject; but, as a mat
ter of fact, there has been cause for
some anxiety about the empress for
some time past. She has never been
very robust, and the attack of meas-
Jes from which she suffered early in
the winter has left her painfully weak.
An English visitor, writing from Rus
sia, says: "The Tsaritza looks so fra
gile that it seems scarcely possible
that she can be the mother of the two
exceedingly fat babies to whom she is
so passionately devoted."
