NAMES OF WARSHIPS.
I.peratltlon Still Hold* SRtlo.--S.o ry Ot tliP * h?-si*i>*-iak?-. The decision to change the name of Ihe training ship Chesapeake to Sov irn becuuse of tho bad luck which be? fell the tlrst ship of the former name Shows that even In un SflS of eulight snuiout superstition survives among MUN- The reason assigned is that Ihe original Chesapeake was "unlucky" because of the ill fortune that befell her some years before tbs breaking put of the second war with Croat Britain and the lowering of her Hag to the Summon during that war. While Wt have no desire to question the motive in changing the name, we think lt well to remember that, al? though the old frigate struck her col ors twice, there was _o dishonor in either case. In the tirst Instance the assault upon the Chesapeake was un? warranted ami brough, the country to the verge of a war that might never have occurred but for that incident. The Chesapeake was alleged to have sn her four deserters from the British navy, and the Leopard, lu our waters, followed her and wantonly ?blew her up," in sailors' language, and took off the men forcibly. Impressment was tho evil that brought on the war. and thii was the most arrogant exercise of the alleged right. It turned out that there was ouly one man who could be claimed by any stretch of technicalities to be a Dritou. There is no disgrace In that event, for the American com mander wus uot prepared to tight and bsd no idea that ho would be attacked. He was court martialed more to ap? pease public sentiment than for any other cause. It ls agreed on all sides that the tight between the Chesapeake and Shannon was au unequal combat, due to one of those accidents which so often decide events. At the opening of the tight the rudder of the Chesapeake was dam Bged, so that she became helpless, most of her- officers were killed and wound? ed, and the end was never even by the British claimed to be anything to our discredit. Lawrence was bold and too rash and was not provided with a prop? erly trained crew, lie paid the penalty for his rashness, and his dying words, "Don't give up the ship." have been worth since then a do7.cu frigates. We do not look opoo the name as unlucky, but rather as significant, but since sailors must have their pet supersti? tion, all must acquiesce in the change. ?Philadelphia Inquirer. A Cheap Lot of Millionaire". An amusing thin;; happened while Judge Swan of thc United States dis? trict court was hearing a case in which a number of lumber magnates aud ship owners were interested. One of the litigants, who could drop a million without having to avail him? self of the bankrupt law or go to thc poorhouse, was approached by a news? boy who had taken advantage of a Iud in the proceedings. "Please, boss," piped the urchin, "kin rouse change a quarter?" Obligingly the man who has both boats and pine lands went through his pockets and the net result was a nickel and three pennies. "Don't bodder yorself," scornfully "Youse is de fort' man dat couldu'l flash as much as a dime. I'll give d< ole guy"?another millionaire?"his pa per. But dey is certainly a cheap lol o' skates floatin' round dese courts." Detroit Free Tress. A Japanese Traitor. Traitors among the Japauese officer: are not treated pleasantly when the! misconduct is discovered. Dennet Bur leigh in his book on Japan tells of ai instance. Two Japanese transport laden with men, stores and heavy slog artillery had been suddenly attacks by the Husslau Vladivostok squadron One was sunk; tho other escaped wit! difficulty. Who had given the Informs tlon of the sailing of these ships? "Th Japanese made search to find out wh bad blabbed and ultimately traced i to a high official in Tokyo, one holt! lug sea rank and engaged in the adm ralty. A Russian check for a larg sum was traced into his hands. II wns confronted with lt and his recoil signature thereon. Then he was le into a secluded room, where a mimbi. of his fellow officers had gatherei They stripped him naked, spat upc, him and kicked him to death." A Hird In Church.

"What," said Miss Could, 'is mo unpleasant, more annoying, than tai lessuess? Let me tell you about a s premely tactless man. "This man went with his wife to dinner party. He took down to diuu a very charming woman, but the tir course had hardly begun when, to I wife's dismay, he jumped up fruin 1 leat beside the woman, and, making tircuit of the table, took a vacant ch; beside a young matron "After the dinner as the man's wi sntered her carriuge to drive home s laid Impatiently: " 'I have beeu dying all the eveni to ask you why, after taking her do\ to dinner, you deserted Mrs. A.

Of course no one objects to women saving a reasonable amount of jewelry, what they can wear without ostenta? tion or any great concern for Its safe? ly. Such modest possessions are sanc? tioned by universal custom, and from Bil time jeweled rings and trlukets lave been symbols of love and should remain so. Besides, there ls a beauty In precious stones, just as there ls In tit her stones not called precious. Wit? ness the opal, the most beautiful of them all. Hut when women value jew? elry neither for its beauty nor Its asso elations, but merely for its costliness, when they wear as much of lt as they ian simply to show that they have been able to buy that much or make men buy lt for them, when their pleas ur.- in having it lies chiefly hi the knowledge that others envy them, then 1 say the love of Jewels is an evil thing, based on arrogance and selfishness. And I cannot see what Justification hiiv woman who knows of the misery Hbout her can find for spending half a million dollars or uuythlug like lt ou jewelry' It should be noted, furthermore, that the chief harm of this passion for jew? els ls uot In the waste of millions In? volved, although that ls bad enough, but In tho stirring of envy, in the prompting of extravagance, in the urg? ing of dishonesty. If we could know what crimea have been committed for the sake of diamonds we should see that there is nome devil's hypuotlsm In the glittering stones and would have them all cast into the sea for general safety. Certain lt is that no house where precious Stones abound ls free from evil desires Servants are tempt? ed; guests are tempted; strangers are tempted; even intimate friends are (empted Who has forgotten the story of those stolen Newport jewels? And so the unfortunate owners of these wonderful necklaces, tiaras, plastrons, rivieres, etc., must hire men to guard them when they wear these coveted treasures or else lca\ c them unseen and unused behind stupid Iron doors. There are palaces on Fifth avenue with safes for silver and jewels as massive as those In a bank. And there are mil? lionaire hemes where no one is ever free from the hard eye of a lurking do? te, tlve. I know one such homo whore three detectives are ou duty night and day, each one to watch the other two. That is one of the minor penalties of riches.-Cleveland Moffett In Success Magazine. The \ew Tennis. Recent years have seen a twofold revolution in lawn tennis?in its public life as related to other games and In its own interior life. Last summer saw it reach the crest of its popularity. Per? haps never, even lu the fat years of the early nineties, did lt kuow quite such a thorough and gripping recogni? tion. But step by step with this there was an inward change that means more to the future of the game than any emotional revival, for a theory of Btrokos, serves, volleys and returns is being perfected that makes it a new game. The keynote of this art nouveau ?its vital appeal?ls the disguised stroke and the twist serve. In the disguised stroke the direction of the ball is falsified by a sudden final wrist motion, accompanied by altered posture in body and legs. And it is ouly at the last second also that the eyes tell the truth about the ball and where it ls to be expected. In dis? guised strokes placing ls of course the great element?a certain speed put into placed balls. Thus Wren used to lean over to the right and do a backhand stroke that ought to have sent the ball to the left and did send it to the right. ?Country Life In America. Saul. Inland Ponlea. Sable island lies about eighty miles to the eastward of Nova Scotia and consists of an accumulation of loose sand, forming a pair of ridges united at the two ends and luclosing a shallow lake. Tracts of grass are to be met with in places as well as pools of fresh water. These afford sustenance for troops of wild horses or ponies, de scended, lt is supposed, from stock cast ashore from a Spanish wreck early in the sixteenth century. Twenty five years ago lt wai estimated thal the ponies numbered from 500 to OOO but at present there are not quite .00 divided into five troops. A recent wrltei in the Empire Beview comments on tin striking likeness of these wild ponlei to the horses of the Partheuon friezi and to the now exterminated tarpan o: Tartary. They also seem to resembli the wild horses of Mexico, though wit! shaggier couts, to meet the condition! Of I rougher climate. The writer think that these herds ought to be carefull; guarded to the end that an lnterestlui equine type may be preserved. A lia.I april. Thomas W.

When, late in the day, the young woman bando Mr. Lawson a number of letters tba he had dictated they were chiefly r< markable for their hideous orthogn phy. He called the girl's attention t her blunders, whereupon she repllet with a giggle: "Really, now, I think I must hav been bewitched." "Quite so," said Mr. Lawson.
