The water flows directed into Ottery bayon and thence into Bayou Maria. About 7,000 acres of Arkansas 1*1*1 already planted in corn and cotton ft inundated, while the section of Lou isiana near the Uayou Maria embraces a ynat amouut of lands in cultivation that will be flooded. The wind has increased in violence, and the wares washing over the tops of tfee levees near Lake Ptovidence created quite a panic among the people living Vehind them. The gauge stands 41.7, .9 above the last high water, with about ten inches of levee above the liquid, though in many places sacks filled with earth are being used to keep the water from running over. Great anxiety is felt there. The levees in front of Arkansas City, Ark., are in a critical condition. It is "though, however, that with constant attention they will be made to hold.

A Sea Captain's Story of Beaatl/al Gtst Who Was Cast Away on the Coast of Labrador—Hor Good Work Among Hie Natives. [Copy right, 1808. by American Press Associa tion.] "Yes," said my old friend the retired sea captain, 'If I was a writing man like you I could fill no end of books with stories of the sea, nor would it IXJ necessary to draw on my imagination, for there are times, and I've seen them, when Action, no matter how intense, would weaken the reality." "But, grandpa," chimed in a pretty mJas of fifteen, "your stories would be all about men?" "No, for at the very moment yon naked that question I was thinking of Captain Chappell's daughter. Who was she? Well, I am going to tell you. 1 was on a whaling voyage up the Labrador coast years ago and I anchored off shore near where aa old Frenchman named Pinson lived. We could always depend on him for supplies trf fresh meat, and for Eskimo guides if we chanced to get frozen in. "Old Pinson lived all alone, so when I called on him early one spring and while I a bra dor was still six feet below the snow, you can imagine my surprise at see ing, in the little den he called his parlor, one of the most beautiful young women my eyes had ever beheld, and as you all know there are still pretty girls right around New Bedford here. They don't be gin to come up to their grandmothen, but that's neither here nor there. "Old Pinson, like nearly all his country men, was the soul of gallantry. Still, be fore I learned the young lady's story, I was sure she had never voluntarily come up from the land of sunshine and fruit and flowers to preside in this ice land over the dreary household of a man of seventy. But my curiosity was soon gratified. Here is what I learned from Monsheer Pinson and from Cora Chappell herself. "She was the daughter and only child of an Englishman who had given up seafar ing for merchandizing. She was born in Canada, up near Three Rivers, and her father having all the money he needed to live in modest comfort, decided to fit out a vessel, load her with furs and take his wife and daughter in her to England, after which he would sell ship and cargo and toil no more. "How it came about no one knows, but it is pretty certain that after the ship had cleared Newfoundland she was blown from her course, and thrown back on the Labra dor coast and wrecked. She went down at the entrance to Pinson's bay and not more than a mile from his place. "What made it worse was the ship went to pieces in the night. The captain was putting his wife into the long boat when she was swept from his arms and never seen again. After a desperate effort in an awful night he made shore with his daugh ter and only four of his crew left out of twenty-three. "This was in the latter part of Septem ber, and already the ice bolts were locking up the white shores of Labrador. Captain Chappell in one night had lost his fortune and his wife, and if it had not been for his daughter he must have given up the strug- "gHE THRILLED THEM WITH STORIES OF THE FAB OFF LAUD." gle and gone to cruising on the chartless ocean of eternity. But there was still something to live for. With his men he gathered up a great deal of the timber, food and cargo that littered the shore, but against the advice of the old Frenchman he went out one day to examine the wreck in the hope of saving something more. But his ill luck followed him. A sudden storm came up and Captain Chappell and the last of his men went down with their swamped boat in the bay and never were seen again. "You need not excite your imagination to conceive the condition of that poor girl, Corn Chappell—orphaned, as it were, in a day, made a pauper in an hour and sepa rated from all the civilized world by ice barriers that went not down except for a few brief months every summer the only one of her race within hundreds of miles, this old Frenchman, Pinson no white women within 800 miles, and Only the dwarfed and bestial Eskimo to assure her that she and her ehivalric protector were not the only people left in a world that seemed to be all ice and snow and snow and ice. "If Cora Chappell had been permitted a choice at that time, she would have pre ferred to go into the eternal rest beneath the ice hills that rose above the frozen sea, under which her father and mother slept. "But she was as noble as she was beauti ful, and as brave as she was bright. She saw that her only hope lay in effort, so she set to work to make the old man's snow covered house brighter and more comforta ble. The effect of a woman's hand was, soon visible in old Pinson's house, and he? came to worship the angel who had wrought the change. "Then came the long winter, with its storms, its few hours of midday twilight, its long hours of night, when the cold white moon and the darting aurora bore al is seemed by their strange light to in tensify the frigid atmosphere and to crys tallize the ice. "During that awful winter the Eskimos, as was their custom, came down to the bay to hunt for seals through the blow holes and to be near the old trader. Cora Chappell became interested in them. She soon acquired their language. She taught the women to sew and tried to impress them with the need of cleanliness. "The little brown children, like fur cov ered balls, she gathered in the room Mr. Pinson used for a kitchen and she taught them to read after a fashion, and she thrilled them with stories of the far off lands where fruit and flowers and bright plutnagcd birds were to be found every day In the year. In return for this they told her of the ire spirits and of the snow god whose breath makes the northern lights. "They called her the 'Ice Queen,' and knowing that she was the only person who bad survived the wrcck, they believed that she was immortal and could never die like other people. "And so it was that Cora Chappell lived and worked till my ship called at Pinson's bay. I was a young man of nine and twenty then, and not bad looking, as your grandmother over there will tell you. I re mained at Pinson's for two weeks, and then sailed for the south. Cora Chappell? Well, she came with me, and when we reached Newfoundland we were married, and she cruised with me, brave heart, in many a voyage after that. "And so you see you .ire all princes and princesses grandchildren of the Ice Queen." And the gallant old captain rose, stepped lightly behind her chair, and bending back the still lovely head with her crown of snow, he kissed her.. Taming Bachelor*. Thero has recently beeu some talk about taxing bachelors in New York state, but I find on looking over some old files of New York papers of the date of 1825 that a bill was actually introduced at Albany in that year to tax all unmarried men of tho age of twenty-eight and over. This bill evidently created a great deal of alarm, for a meeting was called at the old Essex market house at which 400 bachelor* more or less old attended. A great many speeches, some serious and not a few witty, were made, and the following curious preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It appears by the public papers that a bill has been introduced into the legislature of this state to lay a tax upon bachelors. In what mauner the funds are to be applied, whether for the endowment of a seminary, in which old maids are to be employed as instructors, or whether to ed ucate old maids in some of the useful and polite branches of literature, that they may be enabled to get a living without a helpmate, is unknown to us, not having seen said bill or its provisions. But what ever may be the provisions of said bill, we conceive it unconstitutional to lay a specific tax upon old bachelors, and calcu la ted to cause much mischief in the com munity, "because it will drive from the state many good citizens who prefer a life of celibacy. Further, It will tend to increase bache lors, inasmuch as when women find they can be maintained in a single state many will prefer that mode of lifo and refuse all offers of matrimony. It will cause many bachelors to conceal their ages, as women do now, and thereby lead them to tell un truths, which otherwise they never would have thought of. It will cause old maids to be ten times more intolerable than they usually are, by making them independent of men for a livelihood. It will tend to destroy that exquisite sensibility in men, who, having lost their sweethearts, have made pledge to do penance all their lives by living in a single state. It will lead many men to enter into the holy bonds of wedlock without being guided by that be witching and delectable passion, love, and hurry them to marry merely to save the tax, and so it will produce unhappy matches, for marriage cannot be happy without love. Love is a carious thing, you know-f It makes one feci all over so. It will excite to a retaliation on tWe part of bachelors, and cause them to use their influence to get a tax on old maids, thereby bringing on a civil war between old maids and bachelors, to the entire destruction of the pcace of society: Therefore, be it resolved, That we will use our most earnest exertions to prevent the passage of the before named bill, which we consider unconstitutional and fraught with the most alarming consequences to the peace and happiness of society. Resolved, That a committee be appointed to draft a memorial to the legislature, pray ing that the bill may be defeated. Resolved, That if said bill is laid upon the table and never taken therefrom, that we pledge ourselves to marry as soon as we safely and consistently can. Resolved, That we tender our heartfelt sympathies to the old maids, who like— Jc-remiah's figs—the good are very good, Tho bad too sour to give the pigs. Resolved, That it be recommended to establish a house of industry for old. maids, and that old bachelors contribute to its support by Bending to it their linen to, make up and their stockings to darn. Resolved, That the thanks of this Meet ing be tendered the market authorities?^: the use of this building. It was moved and carried that a com mittee of five gentlemen be appointed to draft a memorial to the legislature. It was also moved and carried that the proceedings of the meeting be published in all the papers that will consent to do it without charge. The bill was withdrawn, for the bachelors had behind them the power of the ballot, which the maids had not. The Same Old Story. Some men have pet stories—stories which they repeat and laugh over as if they were fresh and bright instead of being venerable with antiquity. Mr. Bronson, of the Brook lyn Heights club, is a man of this charac ter. Mr. Bronson has made a fortune in flour, and nothing delights him so much as to have his friends to dine with him and to chat afterward, unless indeed it might be the hearing of himself telling that one pet story. Among his neighbors is Colonel Tipton, of the same club, who really has a genius for anecdote, and this with other convivial habits makes him a great favorite at Mr. Bronson's board. One night recently, just as Bronson was clearing his throat, it was discovered that Colonel Tipton was "sound asleep and nigh to snoring still the host went on with his story, and when he had concluded he shook the colonel and said: "By going to sleep, old man, yon lost a mighty good story." "No, I didn't," replied the colonel, "I heard every word of it." "I'll bet you a box of cigars you didn't." "I'll take that," said the colonel. Thereupon he sat erect, and assuming Bronson's voice and manner, he began at the beginning and, without varying a word, he told the story through to the end. "By Jove, you're right," said Bronson "and I can't make it out, for you weredead asleep. Now confess." "Yes," said the colonel "I was asleep." "Then how could you hear the story?" "Well, I looked at the clock as I woke up and saw it was just half past 10. That's the hour you've been ending that stoTy at ever since I've known you." ALFRED R. CALHOVW.
