An extraordinary story of shipwreck and
suffering was brought to Liverpool by the
eayitain and officers of the iron bark Glen-
more, of Carrickfergis, which left Mary
port, Cumberland, for Buenos Ayres, with a
cargo of iron rail on the 4th of December,
lbo7, and which was wrecked on a sunken
reef off Cape Diego, on the South American
coast, on the 8th of April. Mr, James Mor
gan, the (second mate, has given the follow-
ig account of the experiences of the crew:
It wa blowing a gale and snowing at the
time. We got out the lifeboat, and the
whole crew, sixteen all told, embarked in
her, without being able to obtain any pro
visions or any clothing. At daybreak we
pullod seaward, for the frowning precipices
on every suie, towering thousands of feet
above the sett, seemed to render a landing
hopeless. Several of the crew were pros
trated, and lay helpless in the bottom of the
bout. At one point, where the cliffs were
somewhat lower, a party of ten or twelve
1- ueigeans, naked and all men over six feet
high, appeared on the cliffs. They gesticu
lated and shouted, but all the seamen could
distinguish were the words "knipe" (knife)
and "tMsuit." Not liking their appearance,
and knowing that they had a reputation for
cannibalism, the crew again put out to sea.
The following morning, the 9th, sighted
Staten island, and succeeded in landing.
about f o'clock, at Flinders bav. Here we
obtained the first drink of water we had had
since leaving the ship about forty hours.
The next morning we found a case of curry
on the beach, and this, with some berries.
which we found on stunted bushes, made us
a sorry brjakfast. We then launched our
boat and proceeded down the land, intending
to make St. John's, where there is a light-
bouse maintained bv the Argentine Republic.
Bv 4 p. m. we were all utter lv done up, and
we lau.led at Port Cook, wb re we "feasted"
on mussels and limpets, which was all we
got that niht.
The next day we proceeded, and landed at
St John's utterly exhausted. We were most
hospitably received Most of us were suffer
ing severely from frostbite, and all of us
from utter prostmtion, but we were carefully
tended, and in about a fortnight had ail re
coveml. On our arrival we were informed
that we had come at a good time, as the re
lief steamer from Buenos Ayres, which is
supposed to visit the lighthouse every three
months, was due in a few davs. She, how
ever, failed to arrive, and we afterward
ascertained that she had been wrecked on
the voyage out from Buenos Ayres. Pro
visions sKn began to tail, though we had fair
shelter and fire, for which abundant fuel was
found on the beach.
We at first had biscuit and tinned beef, but
gradually came dowu to seaweed, boded or
raw at choice, a f?w fish, caught with hook
and line in the bay, now and again a seal, an
unlimited supply of mussels, penguins and
'steam birds," in the capture of which two
dogs on the island were very expert. They
had, however, to be soaked in vinegar, or
whieh there was, fortunatety, a good supply,
for twentv-four hours before they could be
eaien, so strong was their fishy flavor.
When we had been on the island for two
months, and things were about at their
was sighted, and ten of our party put off to
uteroept her. She signaled their arrival.
and we supposed that Uiey pat back with
provisions to fetch us off; but we never saw
any more of them, and could only conclude
that the boat on her return was swamped
and ail her crew drowned. Shortly after
this our troubles were increased by the ar-1
rival of seven of the crew of the British bark
Cordova, which was lost close to the same
point as our own ship. Ultimately, on the
13th of September, the relief steamer arrived.
and on the 15th we bade farewell to our in
voluntary quarters.
Morgan added: During onr stay on the
island a story was told to us by the lighthouse
people, which I simply repeat About eigh
teen months before our arrival there the
crews of two vessels landed on Staten Island,
about twenty-five miles from the lighthouse,
and were apparently ignorant of its exist
ence indeed it has onlv been established
about five years. After an interval of some
weeks sixteen of the thirty-two arrived at the
lighthouse with a report that the others had
died. They were taken off by the relief
steamer. The sequel is that shortly before
our arrival the lighthouse people, exploring
the region of the reported landing of these
men. found a little above high water level
three or four beef barrels, which on exami
nation were found to contain human remains
salted down. I hesitate to say what the in
ference mu-st be. Boston Herald.

There Are Those Who Are Beserred and
Other Who Show Their Love.
The pleasantest things that come to writers
are the letters from strangers, who know us
only through our published thoughts. They
are frequently letters full or appreciation
and sympathy, that cheer and warm oar
hears and set us to sharpening our pencils
to a finer point
Strangers, did I say! It would have been
belter to have written acquaintances instead,
for who knows us so well as a sympathetic
Writers are often shy about expressing
their thoughts by the tip of their tongues,
but cive them a pencil and a bit of paper and
they can no more help dropping a bit of
their heart's blood on it than a bird can fly
among flowers of spring and not sing a song
to them.
And that drop of heart blood! bow it
widens and spreads, and what magic and
magnetism there is in it! 'Just so my heart
has bled," writes some one from a little town
close by, and "just so my heart has bled,"
writes another from a distant city, and "just
so nay heart had bled " writes some poor,
desolate soul with a pen that is ignorant of
the rules of grammar and the art of spell
ing, nnd all the more pathetic for it
So the sympathetic letters come, proving
always that one touch of nature makes all
of us a little bit akin.
Pooh V sa.d a shallow woman to me one
day, "vou can't make me believe that you
writers feel what you write. "I shall not
try," I answered languidly, "life is too short
and your brain is too narrow."
bbe cut me dead the next time she met me
on the street, and I was glad of it She is a
cold, fishy sort of woman anyhow, and her
hand is as limp as an orster. I hank heaven
I shall never be obliged to shake it again, its
owner, asit were, having shaken me!
There is a ravine that "it is better to have
the good will than the ill will of even a dog,"
but it is not a saying of mine. It is a post
tive luxury to me to feel that certain people
dislike rue as heartilv as I disnke them.
There is a flavor about it, and I like a flavor
in dislike as well as in love.
Ii ail of us would come square out in our
likes and dislike i believe the world would
bo nanp''er fr it Such an honest arrange
ment would certainly save us from much
borodoiue and fromafpw b;g lies and many
little ones; and save us too from the pain of
misunderstanding and doubting the friend
ship of our friends. Give me an enemy with
a flaming torch in his hand and I will move
out of my straw house into a house of brick.
Give me an enemy with a shotgun in his
hand, and 1 will run around the corner; but
give me an enemy with a sharp LtUe asp that
stings under her kisses, or au enemy who
gives mf a g'as of wiue with poison in it or
a slice of breed raised by tho yeast of slander,
and I have no way to protect myself.
G.ve me a friend who says frankly, "I love
vou; whosuows it m her glad smile when
we meet, m ikes me feel it in the warm clasp
of her hand, and who d ies not leave me in
doubt of her sympathy when tho sunshine of
happiness bria,rhtons my pathway, or the j
thunders of trouble roll over my head. i
Such a friend, full of demonstrative ten
derness, is a dayspring of delight and not to
be swapped off for many Worth costumes or
much fine gold.
But the friend whose eyes never brighten
at my approach, whose bps never say "1 am
glad for your gladness, sad for your Badness f
whose hands are never stretched out to break
my fall into trouble, and who turns away bis
face lest I should discover that he sym
pathiao with me pshaw! such an undemon
strative friend as that (should be laid across
tc lap of neglect and spanked with a duty.

Baltimore. Md., Jan. 80, 1887.
I have been a sufferer for six years with
catarrh, ulcerated sore throat and rheu
matism of the chest, from blood poison.
About four weeks ago I wan passing the
Botanic Blood Balm store No. 8, North
street, Baltimore. I went in and con
sulted your agent about my case. He
gave me one of your B. B. B. "Book of
Wonders," which I read. 1 called m a
few-davs afterward and got a bottle of
your Botanic Blood Bhlm-B. B. B. I
am now on my third bottle and will say
that I nave felt a marked improvement
since the third day after commencing to
use your medicine. I now have no trouble
from my throat, and hare improved so
much in every way that I am satisfied
that by the use of your medicine I will
toon be all right.
I have taken many and some good
prescriptions and medicines for this
trouble, but I think your B. B. B. the
best remedy I have bad, and I cheerfully
recommend your Botanic Blood Balm to
the public as the quickest and best blood
remedy I have found, aftr six long years
of search for health. Very respectfully
yours, Joseph W . Flower.

What We May Live to Sect
If history repeats itself accurately, and all
the directory and empire fashions are to ba
adopted, one after another, then will women
have wigs of many colors to wear at various
times of day; they wiu demand not only
breast knots and wreaths of flowers, but
flower garlands for the hems of their skirts,
and tbeu the wigs will be given up and dis
heveled hair will be fashionable, and every
garment, from the outermost to the inner
most, will be embroidered, and the costliest
cashmere shawls will be desired and ob
tained, if possible, and it will be necessary to
have many of them, adapted by their color
to various occasions. Boston Transcript
A Pretty Airanganient.
The latest fad for banquets and lunches is
the "triangular table." Three long tables
are arranged in the form of a triangle, and
in the center is a round table, bearing the
floral centerpiece, the open space being tiled
in with foliage plants. The host or hostess is
seated in the center of the base of the tri
angle, nnd to his or her right and left are the
favored guerta The others are seated upon
the other side of the triangle, and the beauty
of the arrangement is that all of them face
the host or hostess. The idea was introduced
at a ladies' lunch given in Chicago.
The Ghost of a Chanoe
"Materializes" and becomes a veritable
reality when health, a will o' the wisp
often chased in vain, is sought by the
nervous, dyspeptic, bilious invalid
through the agency of Hosteller's Sionv
ach Bitters. Looming in the distance at
orat, it is surely drawn toward the suffer
er by the Bitters' potent influence. It
incorporates itself with his being. It is
seen reflected in the.Aue of the counte
nance, the animation of the eye. it
felt in a sense of renewed vigor, in the
restoration of nerve tranquility and
dieestion and undisturbed nightly repose.
What person, suffering from any of the
maladies to which the Bitten are adapt
ed, will postpone the means of cure
knowing it can be relied upon? Dyspeps
sia, constipation, malarial disorders,
rheumatism, biliousness, kidney inaclivi-
are certainly conquered by it.

Memory of "Santa Clans.
Tbev call him Father Christmas in Prance:
and this is the way George Sand, the famous
writer, d escnbos her memory of tbe benero
lent patron of the children :
I have not forgotten the absolute belief I
had in the descent down the chimney of Old
tatner Christmas, a good old man with a
snowy beard, who, during the night, as the
clock struck 1 J, was to come and place in my
little shoe a present, which I should find upon
Twelve o'clock at r.iht! that mvsterioos
hour unknown to children, and which is rep
resented to them as the impossible limit to
which they can koep awake. V, hat incredi
ble efforts did I not make to resist xnv ten
dency to sleep before the appearance of the
little old man !
I felt anxious vet afraid to see him: but I
could never keep awake long enough, and
the following morning my first anxiety was
to rr and examine my shoe in tbe fireplace.
u hat emotion did 1 not feel at sight of tbe
white paper parcel I for Father Christmas
was exceedingly dean In his ways, and never
failed to wrap bis offerings careful v.
1 used to jump out of bed, and run bare
footed to seize my treasure. It was never a
very magnificent affair, for we were not
eaithy. It used to be a little cake, an
orange, or simply a nice rosy apple; but
nevertheless it seemed so precious to me that
I scarcely dared eat it.
A Delightful Tetw
The jumping mouse, if one may believe a
writer in Forest and (Stream, can be made a
delightful pot. He is a great jumper, and in
leaping takes a course In rigxags, clearing
two or three yards at a time, springing with
its hind fit, but landing on its fore feet at
each bound. Audubon says that it is cer
tainly tho must agile of animals in the entire
world's fauna. Farmers sometimes plow It
np in their wheat fields, when it maie3 off in
niagmoent leaps. It feeds on grain and
various kinds of seeds, but rarely does much
damage. Strictly nocturnal in its habits, it
may be found haunting either the woods or
the openiitivated fields.
It Is that impurity In the blood, which, ac
cumulating in the glands of the neck, pro

How Can
It Be
By taking Hood's Sarsaparflla, which, by
the remarkable cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's SarsapariUa.
My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the time she was 22 months
old till she became six years of age. Lumps
formed In her neck, and one of them after
growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. We gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all Indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Carlile, Naurlght, 21. J.
