that telegrams were received from Gold

ing perfectly plain Goldsmith had written
.'out the time as seven and three-quarters,

SWALLOWED HIS WHISTLE.
A Connecticut Boy Baa II Ik Tin Play-
EBMW^-C thing In His Stomach.
Little Johnny Sadler of this town , had a
tin whistle which was very dear to his
heart, and he kept it piping shrilly nearly
all tbe time. Johnny has his whistle still,
nut it is in a place where he can not get at
it. It is In his stomach. ; lie was whistling
wilh his plaything tbe . other day In the
breeziest way but he pulled too hard on the
whistle finally, and suddenly it went down
Into Johnny like a cartridge slipping into a
magazine gun. The whistle is about one
aula half Inches in diameter aud several
inches long, and thoueli an expert surgeo n
has tried all means by which to ; recover it
he cannot get it from Johnny. --"..
First he put a bug tube down the little
boy's ceso- hagus, and one end of the instru
ment touched the whistle that was ranging
about at the bottom of John's stomach, but
the whistle was too big to come up. AM
child's case is serious, and the surgeons all
say that the only way in which to recover
the toy is to cut a way into the baby's stom
ach and take it out with a probe, The doc
tors are afraid that if nausea attacks the
boy he will cast the whistle up Into his
throat and then he is liable to be strangled.
Therefore only solid food is given to the lad
in order that it may envelope tin. tin thing.

AS EDITOR'S ROMANCE.
Bow D. A. Ilraliiaril Won a Talented
H. A. Brainard, editor and proprietor of
the Santa Clara Valley, a monthly devoted
to the horticultural and viticultural inter
ests of this State, returned last evening
from Raymond, Mississippi, where he has
been on a most romantic errand. Two
years ago at the Mississippi Horticultural
Association meetiug Miss M-iggie A. Down
ing read a paper on "Flori culture," which
was published in the New Orleans Picay
une. Mr. Brainard found a part of the
able essay floating around in an exchange
credited to some one in California and re
published it. Some one thoughtfully sent
Miss Downing Mr. Brainani's paper, con
taining the wrongly credited article, and
she immediate)" wrote to him about it.
That was the beginning of the romance
which culminated at St. Mark's Church in
Raymond, Miss., in the 12th inst., In the
marriage of Mirrs Downing to Mr. Brainard
by the Rev. H. W. Robinson. The couple
had never met until two days before the
wedding. They reached San Jose last even
ing, and the Santa Clara Valley will here
after have the advantage of Mrs. Braiuard's
sparkling and rhythmic pen.— Jose Her

The Story Told by an Old Salt
at Meiggs Wharf.
Hew the Crews of Two Well-Kncwa Whaling
Barks Abandoned and Exchanged Ves
sels in the Arctic Ocean.
The whaling. season in the Okhotsk Sea
and the Arctic is now over, and nearly all
the vessels of the whaling fleet have re
turned to port. Some of them have come
back with very good catches, while others
have returned "clean," and their crows
have been paid off with SI.
The few tint are yet out are hourly ex
pected and there is great anxiety among the
owners, those who have friends on board,
sailor boarding-house men, dealers in bono
anil oil, city front clothiers and other inter
ested parties, to find nut .it the first oppor
tunity the catch of those yet out when they
are first reported off the Heads.
* For this purpose they gather daily and
nightly at Mciggs Wharf, where the first
news is brought ashoro by the Merchants'
Exchange boat. Last night there was the
usual molly crowd gathered at the wharf,
anxiously awaiting the arrival of the
whaling steamer Belvedere, which, as before
reported, has on briar.l the crew of the ship
wrecked whaling bark Eliza.
A though a little hazy, the weather was
soitand balmy, and when a reporter visited
the dock the soft light of the new moon fell
on as picturesque a crowd as ever gathered
there. There they were sitting on the
stringer singing sailors'- "shanties" and
TOLD OF PERILS ENCOUNTERED.
Nearly all had been to sea some time or
another, many of them as whalers, and the
yarns they told of perils encountered on
trips to the Southern Hemisphere, to the
Okhotsk and the Arctic seas and to Baffius
Bay would have made a dime novelist turn
green wiili envy.
Tho boys had a great, old time. They
kept perfectly quiet during the r« i*i'al of
the yarns, only ouce in a while chipping In
with, "that's so," "I've been there myself,"
"you bet yiuir blubber." *
After George Guinpertz had told a lough
story about a winter that he had spent in
the whaling bark Ellsworth E. Shotwell
near the mouth of the Mackenzie, and how
all hands were nearly dead from starvation,
when the ice broke up and the -team whaler
Henry Cottrell came to their rescue, just as
the crew had cooked and eaten his pet dog,
with the stub tail, a silence fell on the crowd,
sealed as it was with legs hanging over the
After a while Captain Blethen started up
'vitalize. Boys, Ranzo," and everybody chip
ped in with a vim. Then sailors' songs
were the order of the hour and "Blow,
Boys, Blow." "Pise Up Jack, Let John Sit
Down," "We'll Pay Paddy Doyle for His
Boots," 'To My High-low Banco Away,"
"All on the Plains of Mexico," "It's Time
for Is to Leave -Her," "So Handy, My

Hamou consented to tell the yarn, which

" Well, you see," said Jim, "I was boat

Captain Ward Battles, which left here on
ember 18, 1880, on a whaling cruise.
We stood away down south waiting until
tie season opened up north, aud we had
terrible poor luck, I tell you. Wo put into
Honolulu in February of the next year and
gut some fresh grub and then we started for
the Arctic. Our bad luck still followed us
after we got there. Wo sighted a whale now
and then, but they were as wild as deer, and
twice when we had made fast we had our
"We list one fore and aft mlzzen top
mast during a gale, had our galley washed
overboard by a heavy sea and had a hard
time generally. Finally, late in the season,
when we ought to have been thinking of
starting for the south, we got among the
whales. We got the boats out and made for
'em, and girt four big fellows without any
accident. We all felt good 'cause we knew*
we would have a good 'lay' to take wnen we
" If we could have had two weeks more of
fine weather we could have filled all our bar
rels with oil and had as much bone as we
could carry. But fate was against us. The
ice set In and we drifted south with the cur
rent, cutting in as we went. One afternoon,
just as we were cutting into our fifth whale,
a heavy gale sprang up, accompanied by a
heavy snow-storm, and we had to let go our
prize and look after the bark. The wind
was from the south and we drifted to the
north to wear out the gale. The gale lasted
for thirty-six hours and we had to shovel
snow over the rails. 1 tell you it was tough.
TW*EN*TY-FOt.'K DEGREES BELOW ZERO.
"Just as the gale broke up we got among
the field-ice and the thermometer .went
down lo 24° below zero. Many of our crew
were badly frost-bitten and the frost made
the seams in the old bark crack with a re
port like muskets going off. That night the
cold was terrible, the temperature being
down to 22° below, and we all knew it was
dollars to doughnuts that we would not get
out that winter.
" Next day the sea was covered with field
ice as far as we could see from the crow's
nest with a glass and we could see a great
change in the ice. It was rugged and brok* n,
the swell of the sea having Piled cakes on
top of each other aud the field was at least
six feet thick.
Captain Battles himself went up in the
crow's nest wilh Jerry Daily, the chief
mate, and when he came down he said,
'Boys, It looks serious and I guess we wont
see Frisco this winter.'
"then we set to work to calk and batten
everything down to keep the cold out and
prepare for a long winter siege. In a few
days ice formed to the thickness of nine
feet alongside the bark. At daylight on the
morning of November sth the ice broke up
with a gnli; from the north, and a wilder
night 1 never saw. TJe sea was covered
with great blocks of ice, tossing and crash
ing and grinding against each other. A stiff
gale was blowing, and all the sail we could
.■■how was our main topsail, goose-winged.
Every lieavj of the sea the b irk smashed in
to the ice, until it seemed that she would
break every timber in her bows.
"Next day the wind went down and we
could see hills aud hummocks of ice in sight
as big as the ship. The captain told us We
were 175 north-northwest of Point Barrow,
and as the floe was not drifting the northern
edge of it rested against the shore ice, and
we were bound to stay there all winter,
unless some good streak of luck came along
to aid us. -J.g&a
ALL HANDS MADE FOB SHOKE.
" AA'e housed in the bark and established
winter quarters. The Arctic night had come
and the temperature ranged Irom 24 to 38
degrees below zero. One afternoon a terri
ble storm set iv ; the ice around us broke
up, and the bark heaved right up out of the
solid field. She canted over to port, until
her decks were at an angle of 45 . When
the gale went down, the captain was afraid
that when the bark settled down, she would
sink as she was badly strained, her top
side seams being opened. I tell you he was
rattled and gave orders for all hands to
make for the shore.
"We were divided into three gangs. Each
gang had a boat, into which they put cloth
ing, provisions, bedding, a compass, etc.,'
and then we started lor the land. We had a
hard time. . Fortunately there was no wind,'
but the thermometer was down to 20°
below zero. : It was terrible hard work
crossing those ice-fields, climbing and pull
ing the boats over thoie hummocks, aud we
all got pretty well worn out.
"The night we lelt we slept under cur
boats and next luoining started early again
on our journey* Toward nightfall we had
made nearly fifty . miles, on our journey
when myseli and a man named Abe Monks,
who hud gone on ahead to pick out the
route, turned around a large hummock of
Ice, and there before us, to our surprise, was
a large bark standing upright in the ice. We
went back and told the rest of the party, and
when the captain came up he could hardly
believe his eyes, lie bailed her, but got no
response. -The captain and mate climbed
aboard over the stern and reported that the
bark was abandoned.'
"We all then went nn board, and found
her to be the whaling bark Edward Rock of
New Bedford, which was lying at bail Fran
cisco when we left. j She was two-thirds
lull of blubber and oil, and, with ibe excep
tion of having a slight list to port, was all'
right. ; She - had plenty of . provisions .on
board and was well found, and we just made
ourselves at home. ;. • -
SHIPS WERE SWAPPED.
"We thought we should have to stay up
there all winter ; but a' week after we got
on board the Rock there cams a stiff blow
from the southward and the ice broke up '
some. I Then we saw . a channel or st vetch
of clear water leading south, and we set sail
in our find. AYe had sailed about : forty
milts, and our captain was up in the crow's
nest looking •_ how the' ice lay ahead and
around, 1 when he called out that he saw a
bark to the westward of a_ in an open chan
nel, sailing in the same direction. - •■ --
B •'Shortly after the wind packed ths Ice
again aud we remained stationary. Next
day at : noon we had a heavy snow squall,
. lasting over an hour. The channel opened
again, . and we stood out for . clear water.
As soon as the snow cleared away we saw
the bark we had seen the day before.. She
was running down a channel in the ice to
to the southward in the same direction we
were. We came nearer and nearer, and we
soon saw r that the craft was our own bark,
the Herrlman. - _
-.**:' "We signaled her, and , before : dark we
came alongside her. in _ open water, _ and
boarded her. .'< We then found that ; she j had

crew of the Edward Buck. We also : found
that when the Bock got nipped _in the ice
Captain Henrichs had . spied open water to

crew made over the ice for the bark. * They

The United States Navy is In want of
intelligent, bright, healthy American citi

for Uncle Sam's ships is a difficulty which
the recruiting officers are encountering.
Since September Ist only 236 persons have

The Pacific Coast is not able to man the
vessels made in San Francisco, aud quite re
cently a draft of 190 men had to be sent
here from the East for the new cruiser San
Francisco. There is this inconvenient feat
ure about drafts from the East, that men
so brought here have to be returned at the
expiration of their terms oi service to the
place where they were enlisted. This sys
tem, therefore, will take away seamen who
enlisted in the East from the point where
they are most needed, namely, on the Pacific
Coast. This makes it more a matter of Im
portance that enlistments should be made
Strange enough there are four applica
tions ol landsmen to one seaman. Although
there are many whalemen here annually at
the close of the Arctic, and while also there
are many merchant-ship sailors out of em
ployment, these do not furnish a great num
ber of recruits, as the hard chances of ' the
two services leave many seamen diseased or
maimed. '_ ' ' V;

missing since October 28th, when he went
from this city to San Jose. He came here
eight days previously for the purpose of

in which he was considerably bruised. He
is about 38 years of age, is rather a tall man,
weighing about 200 pounds, has a ruddy face

FIELD OF LABOR.
Infusing New Life Into (he Batch*
ers of Oakland.
The journeymen butchers are concentrat
ing their energies just now to strengthening
and . building up the Oakland union. For
some time interest in that organization has
been flagging, and since the union all over
the Coast is in such a perfectly prosperous
condition they could not afford to see one end
droop. . - •
TA; delegation from tills city went over
there on Wednesday night and poured all
the enthusiasm possible into their meeting.
The charter has been opened to receive new
members, and in a short time a sort of mass
meeting will bo called, inviting the entire
butcher fraternity, bosses and ail. to attend.
This union now has the enviable standing
of no idle men and no fault to find about
hours or wages — state of things that exists
all over the Ouast. .. - - .
The tinners and sheet-iron workers are
making a . heroic effort to build up their
union, and the prospect Is fair now for suc
cess. Their financial standing, according to
reports made last night, is assured for many
months ahead, their membership Is gradu
ally Increasing, and from this time forth will
enjoy the privilege of meeting at their newly
established headquarters in Academy Hall,
on Mission street. They will send out cir
culars 10 all members of the craft, inviting
them to join. . * 'yy,

the large foundries, and say it looks brighter
for the union now than it has any time since
the strike. ■

SAPOUO is a solid, handsome cake of house-cleaning soap,
which has no equal for all scouring purposes except the laundry.
To use it is to value it. "What will SAPOLIO do ? Why, it will
clean paint, make oil-cloths bright, and give the doors, tables and
shelves a new appearance. It will take the grease off the dishes
and off the pots and pans. You can scour the knives and forks
with it, and make the tin things shine brightly. The wash-basin,
the bath-tub, even the greasy kitchen-sink will be as clean as a
new pin if you use SAPOLIO. One cake will prove all we say.
Be a clever housekeeper and try it. Beware of imitations.^: There
is but one SAPOLIO. .-.. >
