VOL. XI. LAKE PROVIDENCE, EAST CARROLL PARISH, LA., SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 1898. NO WHAT IS THE USE OF A SORROWFUL SONGI Oh, what is the use of a sorrowful song! The world knows enough of sadness. Cares press wearily, troubles throng, Toil is litter and grief Is long, And never is too much gladness. Oh, what is the use of a sorrowful song, When we might sing one of thanksgiving That never a soul is too deep in wrong, Though years are heavy and sin is strong, 1 To climb to truest llvingI Oh, what is the use of a sorrowful strain That brings but tears and grieving! There's never a life so full of pain But hope in some corner may bud again, And bloom into sweet believing. Oh, what is the use of a sorrowful song That cases not one heart's aching! The hearts that are happiest pass It along, For mirth is heedless and Joy is strong; But it bides In the heart that is breaking. S--Emma C. Dowd, in the Housewife. THE SKIPPER OF THE PHANTOM TUG. DARK-HAIRED girl was standing on the starboard side of a cutter rigged smack. Her gaze was fixed upon a small black object that danced on the choppy waters a boat's length ahead. A young seaman was stationed at the helm. He was dividing his atten tion between the girl and the black object. "Ready?" said he, "Ay!" She had bared her brown, rounded arms to the elbows and adjusted her red cap that held in check her un ruly hair, and she now bent over the bulwark, her hand outstretched in readiness to seize the floating thing as the smack skarried by. "A black bottle," she cried, and the next moment she had it in her grasp and was holding it aloft, the water dripping from her arm. "Look, Steeviel I wonder if there's anything inside?" "Stop a bit, Lottie; we'll soon see." Stephen Armstrong fixed the tiller and then sat down upon the deck at Lottie's side. The splendor of the sunset fell slantingly upon their eager faces. The man looked at the bottle and then at the girl. "It's tightly corked," said he. Then he held it up between his bright eye and the golden light. "It's a lbtter!" said Lottie, peering over Armstrong's shoulder through the glass. "Why don't you break it?'! He struck the bottle against the bulwark and a slip of paper fell upon the decx at their feet. At this mo ment the edge of the tarpaulin that lay across the bow was cautiously raised and a red-bearded man looked out at them with drowsy eyes. The girl picked up the crumpled slip of paper, hurriedly unfolded it, and read as follows: "In another half-hour I shall be drowned. Here I'm a-lyin, drove ashore in a dense fog on the East Saltwin Sands, with a fresh breeze a-blowing from the southeast. She was drove on to these sands at 4.30 a. m., about low water. The tide is rising now and breaking over my craft, and I'm alone aboard. The man what finds this document I solemnlymakes him my sole heir. In the cupboard of the aft cabin he'll find a pile of golden sover- 1 eigns. For I'm an old miser-God pardon me-and I've hoarded my thousands for no earthly good. A just punishment has fallen upon me at last. c "BEN TaaBcBC, Captain." Armstrong stared at his sweetheart, r Lottie Sanderson, in blank amaze- a ment. For a moment he was unable c to utter a word. At last he whispered: t "It's the Phantom Tug-hush!" and c he glanced toward the tarpaulin. "No word to anyone and our fortune's a made." He buttoned up the scrap of paper a in the breast pocket of his pilot coat, r and cast the broken bottle overboard. I Then he resumed his place at the v helm, and the smack went lumbering I on its tacking course toward the shore. o The man beneath the tarpaulin lay I seemingly sound asleep until the c smack neared the entrance to Saltwin harbor, when Armstrong shouted: r "Belay there, Redahawl Harbor ( lightsl"' The night had nearly closed in. As soon as the smack had run into t the small harbor and brought along side the stone quay, Armstrong went a ashore with his girl, leaving RBedshaw v aboard. They made their way through the tows, and entering a lane behind t the sheltering sand dunes, presently L came in sight of a cottage where a light a Sshowed in the window as if to welcome a them. "Lottie," said the seaman, "the a Warren farm's for sale. I was jeust t a-thinking what a snug home it'd be I for me and you." "Ah, that was grandad's onee," said the girl, "and ndr I come to think of I it, grAny prophesied years ago that I the farm would be mine some day; dad ' she's a wonderful gift o' praephesying, a ain't she, Steerie?" . Lottie had slipped her hand earesa- a ingly into Steevie's arm, and now talked of all the surprisingthingsthey would accomplish if thii dream of wealth were only realised. Presently they reached the cottage t door, and Lottie, raising the latch, led f the way into a well-farnshed kitehen, 1i where a flre gave oat a eheefal blase. f Au old woma was r ouehiag m an c armchair beside the hearth. She a turned her blinday s.nhl yy to- I wr tha., o~r wrd, and t Ye rnast at the II ll hase tto a ex ' ' L news what me and Lottie's justpicked up at sea." Granny Sanderson's face became animated. She craned her neck to ward the speaker and said: "Good news, I reckcn! It's in the ring o' your voice, Stephen, plain as can be. What is't, my lad?" 8 Armstrong hasteued to relate the incident of the black bottle, and then I' he read the amazing document which had come to light. The woman listened intently, ae,nd when he had concluded sat silent for a while. At last she said: "Who knows o' this?" "Nobody," said Armstrong, "'cipt us three what are here together." "Nobody? Was you and Lottie alone aboard?" "Redshaw was aboard, o' course. But he don't count," said Armstrong, "'sides, he was asleep, weren't he, Lottie?" Granny Sanderson shook her head shrewdly. "There's them what sleeps with one eye open," said she. "I knows 'em." "What do you mean?" retorted Armstrong. "My mate ar'n't one o' that sort! Whatever's put such a thought into your head?" "Ah, my lad! I've allus held 'as you was too confiding. It's in your iiatur'. Now, lookee herel If you r takes my advice you'll not lose a min aute putting to sea. Why, bless me," said she, "it wouldn't surprise me it e Iedshaw were there afore you. a Mark me!" Stephen Armstrong had pushed away his plate while Mrs. Sanderson t still spoke. He now rose hastily and said: "I'm not afeer'd. I've a mind to take Redshaw alonger me to-night. Why not? I'll need a hand, I'm thinking." "Go alone," said Granny Sander son. "Leastwise, don't you trust Redshaw in [this business, Steevie, if you hope to steer back into Saltwin harbor alive l" Armstrong turned angrily away and put his hand upon the latch. Lottie sprang toward him. "Let me come with you!" said she. "No!" the woman interposed, ris ing and taking a step gropingly toward them. "I forbid it. You stay alonger me." Armstrong went out, enraged be yond measure at the thought that his old mate, fair weather and foul, for ten years and more, should be sus pected of treachery. He had always put implicit trust in Redshaw, though he could not deny that the man had his faults. He was given to drinking at times more than was good for him, and his mates were not always the men Armstrong would have chosen. Still he had never known Redshaw to act in a way that he could call under handed, and he would not mistrust him now. He had reached the edge of the sand dune, where he could gain a clear view of the moonlit sea. He cast a glance toward the harbor. "What!" the exclamation came like a cry from his lips, and next moment he was running in wild haste. toward the shore. Redshaw lingered aboard the smack after Lottie Sanderson and Armstrong had gone. He sat on the deck smoking his short clay pipe and looking yearningly to seaward. As soon as it was fairly dusk, however, he began to bestir himself, lighted a ship's lantern, and collected together a few articles need ful for a short sea trip. These arti cles he carried on board a skiff almost alongside. Then he loosened the ropes, adjusted the oars noiselessly and glided out of the harbor into the open sea. He now hoisted sail and turned his boat's head in the direction of Saltwin Sands. The wind had freshened and the 1 skiff rose and fell and ran forward over the dark waters with increasing speed. At first the clouds overhead were dense and lowering, but scarce had Redshaw got clear of the harbor when the night showed signs of brightening, and the curious moon occasionally looked down upon the, little craft out of black, and ragged 4 clouds. The gleam lit up Bedshaw's face, revealing a look of intense greed. Once or twice the man glanced over his shoulder like one who had half dreads puransuit; but his more frequent look was directed to seaward with an untiring search. An hour--to hours went by, when I a faint ray of light fell athwart the water a short distance ahead. At the same instant Redshaw sprang to his feet and peered eagerly over the bow. Presently the boat's keel grated i upon a sandbank, bringing the skiff to I a gradual atop. The man found him self in two feet of water, and with his ( seaman's knowledge of the bearings there was no reason to doubt that his boat had ran upon the sandbank for which he had designedly steered. It was low tide, and the moment he had made the skiff secure, he began to wade through the surf toward the light a which now glimmered hard by. He i soon grew convinced that it came c from a ship's cabin. Suddenly he a stopped. "Wait a bit!" He pulled a bowie knife from his a pocket, opened the dagger-shaped blade, and clinched the handle be- i tween his teeth. Then he stepped e forward with a look of purpose. Thee light soon proved to be one that came a from a cabin window on the port side s of an old tugboat.

The old skipper ne gloated over each handful as he flung o- the coins with a clinking sound upon a shelf in a cupboard, on a level with is his head. as Redshaw clung to the rope, staring like one spell-bound at the weird ie figure. Then he climbed noiselessly rn on deck, and crept round to the cabin sh door. He found it open. With stealthy trtad he descended the ladder, id the bowie knife now behind his back, or tightly clutched in his right hand, a villainous look in his eyes. But of a sudden-at the very mo pt ment that Redshaw crouched down with intent to make his spring-the is grim old mariner fixed his glittering eye fearlessly upon him. e. The man paused, once more com g, pletely aghast, deprived of all volition. e, "Ahl You've come, have you come to claim it-my gold?" cried the bd skipper as he shivered and laughed again. "No, no-I bayn't dead yet, ie mate. The tide's been and turned, " just in the nick o' time. It were a Ad washing clean over the deck at night o' fall, when I sent that 'ere bottle ta adrift, and I thought as how I was a drowned man.

At the same instant Redshaw regained d his will power and leaped forward. n But as he lifted his knife with the d thought to strike, a masterful grip was put upon his wrist, and he was thrown 'o back upon the ladder, crushed and t. stunned by the fall. When Redshaw recovered conscious ness be found himself lying in the 9t bow of the little skiff, still..at anchor upon Saltwin Sands. A gray, foggy n dawn was breaking over a calm sea. He raised himself upon his elbow and I looked around. A dismantled craft e was drifting before his eyes upon the flood tide. Her stern was turned di * rectly toward him, and upon it he - read, painted in large, white lettersl "PHANTOM TUG," as itvanished into the mist. I- * * " a e It was Armstrong who had saved r Ben Tarbuck from his mate's treach. erous blow. The Phantom was sub sequently towed into Saltwin Harbor. But Tarbuck never fully recovered from that night upon the sands; and 3 before Lottie had become Stephen Armstrong's wife the skipper died, leaving the bulk of his wealth to his preserver. Redshaw never showed his face in side Saltwin Harbor again; though, had he acted honestly, he might possibly have shared his mate's good luck; but in his over-reaching after Tarbuck's r gold, he had lost all.-Answers. The Palmetto Was Saved. Judge Thomas J. Mackey, formerly of South Carohna, gives an incidentol Sherman's march to the sea which 'is not recorded in the war histories. "South Carolina was the first State in the Union to send a regiment to the r front to participate in the war with Mexico," said the Judge to a coterie I of friends at the Metropolitan Hotel. "The people of a grateful State caused to be erected in front of the Capitol in Columbia a monument to the memory of the brave boys of the let South Carolina Regiment who lost their lives in that conflict. 'This monument is made of pounded brass, and represents a palmetto tree. When Sherman's arms entered Colum bia and his soldiers were destroying everything that came in their way, several companies made a dash for the shaft. With the butts of their mug kets they began the work of demolition.; They had not proceeded far when a man on horseback rushed up to them i and commanded them to desist. "'Not another strokel' he cried. "Several of the soldiers paid no at 3 tention. b "'The next man who dares to as sault that shaft I will kill!' he thun dered. "The men saw tears in his eyes of the one who thus addressed them1 they also saw that he had weighed his words carefully, and meant every one of them. "'Soldiers,' said he, 'the boys whe sleep beneath that palmetto lorved thebi country as much uas you or I. They fought as valiantly.' "And the palmetto still stands is the old town ofColumbia. The man who caused it to be preserved was Colonel Paine, of the 124th Ohio Reg. iment, and the people of South Caro. line owe him a debt of gratitude they can never repay."--Chicago Inter.

Its Vletims Known as "Jumping French g men"-Trago mand Ludierous Besults of an Abnormal State of the Nerves-No y Women Ever Found Among the Victims "Jumping Frenchmen," as the men h fflicted with this disease are called, r, are found in the lumber camps of the E' Northwest. The main sufferers, says a Chicago correspondent of the New York Sun, are the French Canadian swampers and choppers, although n Americans, Germans, Irishmen and e Scandinavians who have remained long 8 in the woods are not infrequently at tacked; but as it was first noticed - among the French Canadian woodsmen * the disease came to be known as the "jumping Frenchman" habit, and for Smany years those afflicted with it have d been known as "jumpers." These , "jumpers" are the victims of a nervous i: disease, which causes them to obey " blindly and mechanically any sudden t' command, especially when soccm e panied by a sharp poke in the back or a in the ribs. If commanded to strike, 8 the jumper does so, no matter what he - may have in his hands, no matter what may be in front of him. it So widespread is the "jumping" habit or disease in the lumber regions of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, I, and the Canadian northwest that in many of the camps there is an iron clad rule to the effect that any man in *camp who shall be found guilty of e speaking to or touching one of the a "jumpers" for the purpose of causing n him to make an exhibition of himself I shall be discharged immediately. This rule was made after many practical jokes played upon "jumpers" had re sulted seriously; but in spite of it woodsmen still indulge in their rough r fuh with the "jumpers." r The sufferers from this malady are not thin, broken-down invalids, with 1 a bad case of nerves, as might be im t agined, but are, as a rule, big, brawny men, sound of limb and lung, who, when let alone, are the most capable s men in the pine forest. The phy sicians who have examined them are of the opinion that their nervous sys tem in some way becomes affected by the solitary and isolated lives they lead, and that they can no more help obeying the commands given them than a babe can help being born into the world. It is "touch and go" with them, as has been demonstrated time and time again, and when in this con dition they do not appear to see or realize any danger that may lie ahead of them. No jokes are too rough for the woodsmen of the north, who for the most part are men familiar with all kinds of danger, hardship and pain. They have no mercy upon the "jump ers," who ar3 frequently compelled to endanger their own lives or the life of a companion for the amusement of the crew making up thecamp. Frequent ly the jokes are of a somewhat lundi crous nature. Pies and puddings are a rarity in most of the lumber camps of the Northwest, and nothing pleases the non-jumpers better than to'sud denly command a "jumper" to throw it away when he is in the act of eating his portion of the delicacy. Quick as a flash the pie or pudding is thrown straight ahead, not infrequently land ing squarely in the face of a member of the crew, who can only join in the general laugh which follows. Among the men employed by the Shaw Lumber Companyof Ean Claire, Wis., in one of its camps on the 1 Chippewa River were four "jumpers," and some of the tricks played upon them were attended by such tragic re suits that they will always linger in the memory of the men employed in the camp. Tom- Reynolds, the fore man, was a man who took delight in having fun with the "jumpers." He was a fellow utterly devoid of feeling, I exdept when his little son, whose mother had died in bringing him into she world, was concerned, and when this boy was accidentally slain by a "jumper" Reynolds immediately mur lered the man and later on destroyed himself. When the river broke in the spring and the rushing water was full of logs, the drive being well under way, the men were all assembled on th'. bank ine morning. One of the "jumpers" stepped on alog near the shore and began rolling it. While the men-were admiring his dexterity fteynolds came along, and before the party realied what he was doing he had command- d ed the "jumper" to dive into the rj lood. The poor fellow obeyed in stantly, and when his companions re sovered the body life was extinet, the t anfortunate man's skull having been arushed like an egg-shell by coming s In contact with a log. t Of course, the whole thing was an recident, but all the men blahed Rey- i aolds, and several of the woodsmen go4leeir time cheeks and quit right a there and then. But Reynolds was not yet satisfied-he muast have more fun with the "jumping Frenchmen." About a week before the drive was wver he had his lft on tbrought up from Oadott,'in ordi~.that the little 3hap might witness the sight 4 mil lions of logsrushing down stream pa their way to Half Moon Lake, the b;ig b antatal reservoar ietabov where all the log eat ia tle tieiT tributary to taat eit' are stofed antil wanted. As thie ie wmetr t a een* thA of a Prel'nt"wa Nu hm.; little boy ran in front of the chopper and was struck in the head by the fly ingaxe, which fractured the skull. As N the boy dropped to the grand Bey. nolds and McManus stood for a mo. ment as if carved from stone; tlen, i- with a yell of rage, Reynolds rushed rf upon the unfortunate "jumper," and rO before the other men could reach the i struggling pair had choked the life out n of him. 1, Reynolds was at oniertaken into te custody, while the boy was removed rs to a hospital at Eau Claire, where ·he w afterward died. In due time Bey. n nolds was tried on a charge of murder h but was acquitted on the ground o d temporary insanity. An effort was g made during this trial to have the t- court take cognizance of the "jump. d ing" disease, but it refused to do so. n holding that the malady did not enter 5o into the merits of the case in any par. r ticular. After his acquittal Reynolds 'e seemed .overcome with remorse al e having killed McManus and with s grief over the death of his little son, y and in less than a year he died from s n bullet wound inflicted by himaqlf, a 1- broken-down drunkard. r Ludicrous scenes are sometimes r, caused by one of these "jumpers." e Not many months ago several Minne it apolis lumbermen were walking dows Nicollet avenue in that city with a " "jumper" among them, when one of a the party saw his wife approaching. L, Just as the woman came up the n "jumper" was poked in the back and i- ordered to "kiss her." Instantly he a sprang forward, threw his arms around .f the astonished woman, and pressed e several kisses on her flushed face, g then fell back covered with confusion f over what he had done. A polioeman a came rushing up and was on the point 1 of arresting the whole party on a charge of disorderly conduct, when t the husband of the woman explained. ' The wife refused, of course, to enter a complaint against the kisser. Lates e in the day the ."jumper" was com i pelled to strike at the surveyor-gen. eral of the district and go through a r dozen other exhibitions, to the great amusement ot his friends. 3 The "jumping" disease is found - chiefly in people of little education, al a though cases re known where men of good education are - afflicted. Never r yet has a woman been found who pos Ssessed the "jumping" habit. The un fortunates claim they cannot resist, 1 try as they will, the commands given > them, and in cases where a victim's i hands and feet have been tied with cord and the order to strike or jump has been given the bonds have been snapped asunder in a flash before the I command was fairly out of the speak. er's mouth. WaIltig arect To derive the greatest benefit from walking, it is necessary to hold up the head, keep the mouth closed, and move briskly; it is in these ciroum stances that walking is really good for us. Walking erect not only adds 1 to the manliness of appearance, but it i develops the chest and promoteeth# I general health in a high degree, be cause the lungs, being relieved of the I pressure made by leaning the head downward and bending the chest in, admit the air fully and freely. If ano effortof the mind is made to throw c the shoulders back, a feeling- of fa. I tigne and awkwardnes is at first ex- I perienced, but this is soon forgotten. c To maintain an erect position, or to s recover it when lost, in a manner I which is at once natural, easy, and s efficient, it is only necessary to walk t habitually with the eyes fixed on an c object ahead i little higher than your a own-the top of a man's hat, for ex ample-or simply keep the chin a lit- t tle above a horizontal line. If either f of these things is done, the. neces- f sary, easy, and legitimate effect is to j relieve the chest from pressure, the s air gets in more easily, develops it a more fully, and permeates the lungs I more exclusively, causing a more per- I feet purification of the blood, impart-t ing greatr health and more color to the cheek.--T Ledger.
