Goodwin Sands. In ttre Worfft Sea,
Swallow Them Pitilessly.
Thasa Graady Shoals, That Mock Mu'i
Efforts to Tama Tham, One* Gulp«4
Down a Flaat of War Vaaaala With
Ovar a Thousand Officara and Maiv I
From the steep rough ahore of Deal,
overlooking the ship swallowing Good
win sands, many of the pilgrim fa
thers embarked far America, and
their descendants, In visiting or leaving
England, travel through the famous
downs from wbk-b their stern progeni
tors set sail In search of perfect liberty.
The Goodwins were then in the heyday
of their evil refutation, and for un
iiumbered years they have been as
much the graveyard of the narrow seas
as Sable islund is of the Atlantic ocean.
With fervent thankfulness the pilgrim
fathers saw the last of those notorious
and farreathing shoals which break
tbe vKlous seas In gales and make
them surge and roar like rapids and
wbifb. faithful to their treacherous
character, appear on bright summer
day? as restful as golden plains, with
blue and glorious rivers running
through the countless channels.
Ships of battle, treasure ships. In
diomen with precious cargoes and eml
jrr.int ships have sailed as far as the
Goodwins and there have been eugulf
ed Most travelers who skirt the ooast
between the Forelands see the gaunt
remains ol melancholy wrecks.
The romiiotic tale Is told that tbe
Goodwins were at one time a beautiful
and fruitful island, the estate of Earl
Goodwill. r»nt that Id 10t7 they be
came a vast shoal because of "a turbu i
lent rage of rain and an unheard of
rage of the sea." The Island disap
peared and became "Incredibly covered
with sand That has been the tradi
tion for many centuries, and less than
UOO years ago there was an alehouse
A clerical investigntor. however, who
knew the publican, sorrowfully classed
blm as a lying fellow Although the
tradition is generally credited. It seems
far more likely that the Goodwins are
formed by the strong run of the tide
down the North sea and the tide up the
•trait of Hover, the two meeting off
tbe Kentish coast and sweeping rust
quantities of sand in a whirlpool sli mi
In those days of lumbering sailing
craft, when vessels were completely at
the mercy of the wearher. there was
little hope of keeping clear of the
Goodwina unless the sands could be
discerned aud wind and tide were fa
vorable. Every gale that blew gave
tribute of life and vessel to the stioals
There have been memorable disasters I
In recent years, even since stentn tie i
came almost universal for marine pro
pulsion, but the most noted calamities
relate to the days of sail Of all that
have been put on record none is more
terrible than the annihilation of an eu
tire fleet or warships In tbe storm
which devastated England In 1703
Tbirt"en warships anchored In the
downs were swept from their moor
lugs Some were driven ashore Five
including four sail of the line, were
buried toward the Goodwins and dash
ed to pieces Nearly 1,100 officers and
men perished, yet a handful were
saved iind brought to shore by men of
Deal and Elamsgate and the little ha
veus of the coast
'Tls the hard gray weather breeds
hara Englishmen." Tbe hardest and
grayest ISrltisli weather Is that of the
North sea. The Goodwins are at the
southernmost part of the North sea
and there on the coast line overlooking
the nurds men battle ce.'i.-elesil) with
one of uie sailors hiom pitiless eii
mles The Goodwins cannot be coasi-d
or engineered into submission
They duut mastery and scorn douil
nation and lu their essentials reuialD
what they have been for centuries.
Man lias tried repeatedly to bridle
them, to Hud a foothold on their slink
lng bases Ylore than 5uu years ago a
BChenie was formed u build a beacon
or a lighthouse on the Goodwins, but
it came to nothing. Long afterward
attempts were made to raise a ilgbt
bouse, but tbe work was never tiu
lshed In lhll an old ship was scut
tled and was mude a dead weight with
ballast A mast was put in her and
bore a beacon, but only for a time
Tbe greedy Goodwins swallowed all.
Tbe only way to conquer the shoals
Is to gird them wltb buoys and light
ships, and that has been so well ac
complished that in fine weather the
•ands are marked as clearly on the
waters as the hours are Indicated on
the dial of a watch. But fogs make
beacons useless, and so rapid Is the
run ot the sea in tbe swashes or
channels of the sands that even lo
clear weather an experienced pilot
may uot get his vessel safely through
the Indicated tracks. —Walter Wood la
