Xlovr the Jnjrtnl Sound of I .a nil Kan Oat from ths Former Colnmbu flnt Thanked Cod and Then Killed he Soil of the New World. T TWO O'CLOCK in the morning of I Oct. 12, 1402, a gun 'from the Pinta -announced the glad Hidings that land -was in sight. At :last '. For this time pily true. It was first seen by a sailor named Bodrigo de Triana; but the reward was subsequently adjudged to Colum bus as he had seen a light the night prerious. At daylight, the land was plainly Wble about sir miles off, and the (Treat mystery of the westcan ocean was revealed. The squadron was brought to anchor TUB SANTA MARIA. br signal from the flag-ship; and tho boats were lowered, manned and armed. Columbus entered his own boat richly attired in scarlet, and bear ing the royal standard. The captains of the Pinta and Nina, the brothers Piuzon, put off in their boats, each bearing a banner, cinbla--roned with a green cross, having on THE I'tVTA. each side the letters V and Y, Fernando ind Y&abcl, si-rmoumed by crowna. Immediately on landing, Columbus tirew himself upon his knees, kissed tho earth, and with toars of Joy dtTOutly returned thanks to God. His crample nas followed by the rest. R6 PEMr ? Jl. Then, rising, Columbus drew his sword, displayed the royal standard, and in the name of the Sovereigns of Castile took possession of the island, which ha named San Salvador (Saint Saviour.) I During these ceremonies the natives ! of the island stood aloof, gazing in 1 silent wonder and admiration at the Tim NINA, strangers, who they supposed had descended in their winged barks from the skies. The caravels had fulfilled their mis sion. Humble instruments that they were, they had enabled the great navi gator to confirm what was then deemed his extravagant theory of a new route to India. Such, in brief, is the story of the caravels. In a modest way the United States government has sought to do them honor.and their port of departure has not been forgotten. They, together with the great admiral, as well as the humble sailor whose good fortune it it was to be the first to see the land of Western World, have all been remem bered, and their names perpetuated in the United States navy list. A tine line of battle ship of eighty guns, launched from the Washington navy yard in 1S19, was christened Columbus. She was burnt at Norfolk in '01. The St. Mary's (twenty guns), named after the Santa Maria, was launced from the Washington navy yard in 1814. and is now the school ship of New York city. The Pinta, gun-boat, is at Sitka, Alaska. The Nina, tug boat, is on special service. The Palos, gun-boat, is on tho Asiatic station. The Triana. tug, recently wrecked, was named after the poor sailor who missed the pension, but who, let us hope, received the velvet doublet. Columbus Cannon on Kxtilbltlon. Two of the cannon which, it is be lieved, were at one time mounted on board Christopher Columbus' flagship were received at Chicago recently. The cannon are of t"ie ancient and clumsy pattern of such guns turned out in the fifteenth century. Nothing but the body of the guns remains, tho woodwork, of course, having rotted away centuries ago. TJie guns them selves are almost worn to pieces and are not much more llian huge chunks of rust. Indeed, the cannon are put on the "scrap iron" list in the cannon house papers. Those historic old pieces have been secure for exhibi tion at the world's fair. One of the ! naval officers who was detailed for work in connection with tin-Columbus exposition found the relics at one of j the West India islands. Tradition and substantial proof showed that the can- nou had been used in a fort erected by ' Columbus' son, and that they were 1 brought from Spain with Columbus' fleet. The ruins of the fort are still to be seen. ; When Jones read of "the finding of l &n abandoned schooner" he remarked j that it was probably empty. COLUMBUS' WIFE. The Woman Vhom lie I.ovcd the Daughter of a Navigator. Laws like those which in chemistry govern the affinity of combining atoms in social intercourse produce personal affinities. The greatest of all discov erers was himself destined to wed the daughter of a dis;overer. Columbus often went to mass on Sundays and other obligatory days. His residence in Lisbon being near the convent of All Saints, he resorted thither to per form his devotions, and in his assidu ous attendance then- it was his fate to be attracted by Dona Felipa Muniz until he sought and obtained her in marriage. The affection of Columbus for the young Lusitanian doubtless possessed practical features also, in view of the lu'ins' l irtv-af liv Air 'AMsraafeltion fully planned in the latter years of his exuberant youth. Moreover, crediting his contemporaries as we should, the incomparable pilot displayed two traits capable of turning the head, I will not say of Dona Felipa Muniz, but of every woman eloquence and personal at tractiveness. nis many graces captivated her sense, his eloquence her mind. Felipa Muniz and Christopher Columbus were made one, in conformity with religion and law, in holy indissoluble wedlock. The year after their union a son was born to them, who was baptized in Lisbon and named Diego. The first and most important results of his marriage to Columbus were that two of his wife's brothers-in-law ex- THE wife of cnnisToriiF.il COI.UMnUS. erted a signal influence upon his career; one at Palos, a small Spanish port peopled by hardy sailors, the other in Porto Santo, the island discovered by the exploring expeditions organ ized by tho Infanto Dom Henry, and bestowed as a fief upon the Peretrellos for reasons cot well explained in his tory. The brother-in-law at Porto Santo was named Pedro Correa.

MADE A FORTUNE. HOW TWO SCHOOL TEACHER3 DID IT. Two Hundred Dollar (irom to Twelve Thousand Within a Tear. There are two sisters teaching in the Marion public schools who have reason to thank the rapid developments of one of Chicago's manufacturing suburbs for a small fortune which has grown from a very tiny seed planted less than a year ago. To a representative of the Chronicle these young ladies told the story of their remarkable investment as follows: "At the close of our school work a year ago, we found that we had saved about S100 each for which we had no immediate use. Wo were spending our vacation in Chicago and stopped into the Chamber of Commerce building to see Ja llwiggms ,v to.. wlinm wo had long known. Tliey were just then founding the new town of Griffith whose fnel-oil-pipe-linos and four great railroads including a complete belt line encircling Chicago gave great promise of making this a factory center." lie wore inclined to make an in vestment in the now town and con sented to join them in the purchase of a ivc acre block which they wished to sululivide with some other tracts and put immediately on the market. Our S'-'OO sufficed to make their cash pay ment for one-third interest in this five acres and we expected to moot the de ferred payments from our wages the following vcar." "After making t'lis investment wo wont further on our vacation trip and wha; was our surprise n few weeks later to receive word that the five acres had been bought, subdivided and com pletely sold out. Three parties had taken the entire block at a profit of almost C,000, one-third of which we learned was at our disposal." "So far we had not even seen Griffith but this rcmtrniit 1. iui,-U turn of af fairs gave us a gre it intere-t in the new town a id mo went immediately to look it over. We found nine miles southeast of Ch'cago limits a remark able railroad juncfoi and but little m it-than that. There were perhaps a ' zen homes scattered about in the oak groves and occupied by railroad emplove. There were no stores, no streets, no sidewalks, no nothing ex cept a bright future. The surveyor! were just putting down the lot stakes. We found our block in the very centei of the town plat with frontage on what promised to be the best business street. The lots had been sold out at the ridiculously low average of S130 each." "We remarked that we would rather buy than sell at these figures. This quick sale even at a low price had given us the capital with which tobuy. Wo immediately selected block 11 in the original town of Grlflith and bought it with the profits we had just made. Wc left Griffith saying, "Well, wo shall see what a year will bring forth in this promising place." 'We have just now returned from Griffith after a year's absence, we found four factories completed and Houses are going up ohevcYyVanY'aii(l. streets which had not been cut out when wc were there a year ago, are now lined with prosperous stores. Our block if sold at present prices would realize about 512,000, but we would not take $25,000 for it. If it were similarly located in Marion, it would bring 550,000." "We have seen Marion grow up from a country town into a flourishing young city by the location of factories and Marion has but three railroads and has no the great city of Chicago to tie to." "We confidently expect within the next five years to sec Griffith a great flourishing city and that will be time enough to realize on our beautiful block of lots. Since we bought our relatives have made further purchases and have made money too. We cer tainly believe that Griffith lots bought at present prices and on the very easy terms at which they can be had will prove a quickly paying investment.'" Marion (Ind.) Daily Chronicle.
