Hl Firit Attack Falled-Tli Little Pirate Then Lay Within Short Range, and With Rifle, the Spanish Force Was Reduced and Finally Conquered. A scries cf sketches by Frank R. Btockton on "The Buccaneers of Our Coast" is one of tho features of St. Nioholas. Mr. Stockton tells of the ad ventures of Bartholemy Portuguez, who, with a small crew iu a small ves sel, captured a huge Spanish merchant man in the Caribbean sea. Mr. Stockton says: The littlo pirate sailed boldly to ward the big Spaniard, and tbe latter vessel, utterly astonished at the audac ity of this attack for the pirates' flag Was flying lay to, head to the wind, and waited, the gunners standing by their cannon. When tho pirates had come near enough to see and uuderstaud the size and power of tho vessel they had thought of attacking, they did not, as might have been expected, put about and sail away at the best of their ves sel's speed, but they kept straight on their course, as if they wore about to fall upon a great, unwieldy merchant man manned by common sailors. Perceiving the foolhardiness of tho little vessel, the Spanish commander determined to give it a lessou which would teach its captain to understand better tbe relative power of great ves sels and little ones, so as soon as the pirates' vessel was near enough he or dered a broadside fired upon it. The Spanish ship had a great many people on board. It had a crew of 70 men, and besides these there were some passen gers and regular marines, uud, know ing that the captain had determined to fire upon tbo approaching vessel every body had gathered on deck to see the little pirato ship go down. But the ten great cannon balls which wero shot out at Bartholemy 's littlo craft all missed their aim, and before the guns could bo reloaded or the great ship be got around so as to deliver her other broadside tho pirate vessel was along side of her. Bartholemy had fired none of his cannon. Such guns were useless against so huge a foe. What ho was aft er was a hand to hand combat ou tho deck of the Spanish ship. Tho pirates were all ready for hot work. They had thrown aside their coats and shirts, as if each of them wero going into a prizefight, and with their cutlasses iu their hands and their pis tols and knives in their belts they scrambled like monkeys up tho sides of the great ship. But Spaniards are brave men and good fighters thero were more than twine as many of them as there were of tho pirates and it was not long before the latter found out that they could not capturo that vessel by boarding it. So over the side they tum bled as fast as they could go, leaving some of their number dead and wounded behiud them. They jumped into th..ir own vessel, and then they put off to a short distance to take breath and get ready for a different kind of light. Tho triumphant Spaniards now prepared to get rid of this boatload of half naked wild beasts, which they could easily do if they took better aim with their can non than they had done before. But to their amazement they soon found that they could do nothing with the guns, nor were they able to work their ship so as to get it into position for effectual shots. Bartholemy and hiu men laid aside their cutlasses and their pistols and took up muskets, with which they were well provided. Their vessel lay within very short range of the Span ish ship, aiid whouover a man could bu seen through tho portholes or showed himself in the rigging or anywhero else whero it was necessary to go in order to work tho ship ho mado himself a tar get for tho good aim of tho pirates. Tho pirate vessel could movo about as it pleased, for it required but a few men to manago it, and so it kept out of the way of the Spanish guns, and its best marksmen, crouching eloso to . tho deck, fired and fired whenever a Span ish head was to bo seen. For fivo long hours this unequal con test was kept up. It might have re minded one of a man with a slender rod and a long, delicato line who bad hooked a big salmon. Tho man could not pull in tho salmon, but, on tho other hand, the salmon could not hurt the man, and in tho course of timo tho big fish would bo tired out ai d tho man would get out his landing net and scoop him in. Now, Bartholemy thought ho could scoop in tho Spanish vessel. So many of ber men had been shot that tho two crews would bo more nearly equal. So he boldly ran his vessel alongside the big ship and again boarded her. Then there was another great fight on the decks. Tho Spaniards had ceased to bo triumphant, but they had become des perate, and in the furious combat ten of the pirates were killed aud four wounded. But the Spaniards fared worse than that. Moro than half of the men who had not boeu shot by the pi rates went down before their cutlasses and pistols, and it was not long before Bartholemy had captured the great Spanish ship. It was a fearful and a costly victory he had gainod. A great part' of his own mon were lying dead or helpless ou the deck, and of tbe Spaniards only 40 were left alive, and these, it appears from the accounts, must havo beeu nearly all wounded or disabled. Midnight Ilarmimlcs. The quaint old English church pnet Georgo Herbert was walking to Salis bury one evening to join a hiumi-.ii j.m tv whim ho met a poor man with a poorer horso that had fallcf under load. They wero both in distress, his and Mr. Herbert pulled off his coat and helped the man to unload lusi liors". 1 lo then gave him sonio money and lelt him. At his arriving t Salisbury his friends wondered at his coming into their company so soiled and discom posed. Ho explained tbo cause, mid when one remarked that ho hud dis paraged himself by so dirty an employ ment he answered that tho thought of what ho had done would prove music to him at midnight and that the omission of it would have upbraided uud made discord iu his conscience. "For if I am bound to pray for all that bo in distress so far as it is in my power I am to pra -tico what I pray for, and let mo tell von, 1 would not willingly pass one day of my lifo without comforting a sad Si or showing mercy, and I bless God for this occasion. These are tho places in which to attune one's conscieuco to midnight music. " . He Won the Day. Br. John Baohmaii, a beloved minis ter iu Charleston not much over 20 years ago, was fond of musio. More over, ho had an excellent means of man aging a church choir, ono which other clergymen might use with good effoot. Iu his early student lifo tho singing was very bad in the old church of which ho was a member. Ho set to work with the zeal of youth and the enthusiasm belonging to his own character to re form this uudosirablo state of things, ?.ud having mustered a largo class pro rurod a singing master to lead it. Tho congregation soon began to take delight iu tho result, and Bachmau watched his class with great satisfac tion, not at all alloyed by the discovery that his own voice proved neither true nor sweet, though it was a most agree ablo ouo iu speaking. But his choir was not flawless. Its members fell out, and ono Sunday when tho pastor gave out tho hymn an omi nous silenco reigned, John Bachmau waited a moment in deep anxiety. Then, with his ever present and self forgetful desiro to help, ho rose in his scat mid began to raise tho tune. That was enough. Tiio singers smiled wad chimed iu by ouo consent as lustily as if they had no greater desiro than to drowu his willing but discordant voice. Ho smiled also and gave them the floor, and never did he ccaso to enjoy the sit uation. "My class was afraid of my bad sing ing," ho would say to his grandchil dren, a humorous look stealing into his eyes. "So I won tho day. "Youth's Companion, Good Friends. In a cavalry troop thero generally grows up between each horso and his rider a strong bond of sympathy and friendship. Soldiers iu tho cavalry serv ice are iu most cases stationed at remote western posts, where, far from home aud frieuds aud as a rulo unmarried, they are necessarily very limited in their social pleasures and amusements. Ou this account, perhaps, tho propensi ty for having pets of various kinds is very strongly developed and increases tho sense of fellowship between tho horses and their riders. Cruelty or in attention to tho wants of their horses is a rare trait among cavalrymen, aud even should this bo tho caso from the feeling of proprietorship cruelty from one soldier to tho horse of another would be resented as an injury to tho owner himself. This comradeship is moro in evidence upon a long march or whilo iu tho field engaged upon arduous or dangerous du ties. On such occasions, when forage often becomes scarce, cavalry soldiers will jealously guard every grain that their horses receive, and should the ser geant through carelessness or projudico give a triflo more or less to ouo than the othor it often provokes a vast deal of grumbling, so closely is tho trooper in terested iu the welfaro of his horso. Lippiucott's Magazine. Foy and the Lunatic. Eddio Foy, the comedian, spent a summer vacation at his old homo in central Kcw York. Ouo day as he was strolling past tho largo iusauo asylum that stands on tho outskirts of tho town ho was startled by a low "Hist!" aud on looking up saw one of tho worst heads that ever came under his gaze peering over the wall. Eddie was not frightened, for he did not think the maniac could scale tho wall, but he quickened his pace. He had proceeded but a short distance when ho heard a scrambling, and on looking saw that tbo madman had climbed over tho wall and was following him. Eddio walked fast, but tho maniac, who was an im mense fellow, with a face that woro a demoniac look, walked faster. Foy trot ted a little, and tbe madman trotted after him. Eddie finally hroko into a run and was horrified to seo that his pursuer was not only miming also, but was gaining steadily. Eddie is not much of a sprinter, but on this occasion he made remarkable time, hut soon Foy could hear tho labored breatbing of his pursuer and felt that ho could make no further effort. Just as ho was about to faint from exhaustion the maniao reached forward, touched him gently ou tho shoulder and said: "Tag! You're it." San Francisco Argonaut. Offered Him Five Cent.

I remember a walk which I once took with them both through the pleasant grounds of Paris Hill, where Mr. Ar nold's cottage was. He was asking Hux ley whether he liked going out to din ner parties, and the professor answered that as a rulo he did not like it at all. "Ah," said Mr. Arnold, "I rati like it.
