A wonderful year was 1814 full o( notable events and developments, tho crucial battles ot what we call the war ot 1812, Including the") burning of the White Ilouie and the treaty ot Ghent, which slgnallied the close of that war; the, first successful steam locomotive: the beginnings of our steam navy; the first a team-driven print ing press. Over the whole phantasma goria of that long-gone time broods the melancholy, not to say sinister, figure ot Napoleon. The allies enter Paris, he abdicates and begins his exile at Elba, while England proclaims Thanksgiving tor the peace of Europe. Here are some of the anniversaries that rail in 11: January 31 The eminent 8cotch geolo gist. Sir Andrew Crombie Ramsay, di rector general of the Geological Survey of the United Kingdom was born on this Say, 1S1C February 9 Birth ot the great democrat Samuel 3. Tilden. who, his party still maintains, was elected president of the United States In 1S76L February II The great artist Henry KIrke Brown- ranked by many as the foremost of American sculptor of his period, best known for his statues ot George Washington In Union square, New Yorki of Lincoln !; Prospect park, Brooklyn, and of General Greene in the cajHtel at Washington. Karen 27 Battle of Great Horseshoe Bend, In which General Andrew Jackson defeated the Creek Indians. March 31 Centenary of the surrender of Paris to the allies. Tho allied armies had poured over all the French frontiers, and Napoleon's efforts to roll back the nue ot invasion had all been In vain. Abdication of Nnpoleon. April U-Centenary of Napoleon's abdl cation. As his struggle against the allies had become hopeless, his trusted officers had deserted and betrayed him. He was forced to abdicate and resign his lm perlol throne April U, 18U. The ancient house ot the Bourbons was reinstated In tho person of Louis 3CVHI. April IJ-Centenary of the noted English philanthropist. Baroness Burdette-Coutts, beloved by her countrymen for the liberal manner In which she spent her vast for tune In the endowment of churches and charitable Institutions.

June 28 The well known English hymn uriter, Frederick W. Faber, whose con tributions to religious "poetry are scattered profusely through our present day nymnals. June 2S-Capture of the British sloop lieinaeer oy our sioop-of-war Wasp In the British, channel. July IS The inventor Samuel Colt, who gave to the world the revolver which bears his name. July Centenary of our steam navy. At the outbreak of the second war. with Great Britain our navy consisted ot only twenty vessels, all sailing ships. An auxiliary squadron ot converted merchant schooners, armed with long guns mounted on circles, was enlisted Into the service. Thero was an average ot only five guns to each vessel for the greater part ot this squadron. Later congress passed an aot authorising the building ot four, seventy-four-gun ships and six first class . frigates and six sloops-of-war, all sailing ships. Then It appropriated 1320,. 000 for one or more floating steam bat teries, designed by Robert Fulton. One of these, completed during July, 1811, was the' first steam vessel ot war ever built In the world. Centenary ot the Locomotive. July S3 The centenary of the locomo tive, On that date in 1814 the first sue-' cesstul engine to carry a load upon tho rails made Us maiden trip at KlUlngworth colliery. West Moor, England. At last a substitute for horsepower traction was found and -a new era In transportation had Its birth. The Inventor. George Stephenson, was only 3S years old when he effected his crowning achievement An odd picture his first locomotive, the Bluchcr, would present to our eyes today, and It mado so much noise by the escapement of steam that the officers ot the law de manded that Its Inventor abate the nuisance. It had smooth wheels, which Inventors at that time considered Impracticable. They maintained that only wheels with rough surfaces would adhere to the track. On Its trial trip the Blucher sue cessfully drew a load of thirty tons. This was hauled In eight carriages, up an In cline. The result was not much of an economic triumph over horsepower, for the speed attained was not beyond that of a horse's walk, and steam and horse power were equal In point of cost July 25-Centenary of the battle ot Lundya Lane. The exploit of the Ameri can Colonel James Miller, in carrying one of the British batteries was considered one ot the most brilliant exploits In the War of 1912. Congress voted him the thanks ot the nation and a gold medal ot honor as a reward. Tyrant' Heel lu Washington. August 21. The centenary of the burn ing of our capltol and White House by the British during our second war with the mother country. At the time of tho Invasion ot Washington by tho enemy, the capltol was still unfinished. Only tho two wings ot the original structure were standing, and they were connected by a temporary bridge made of rough boards, spanning the foundation of the rotunda. As the British approached they fired several volleys Into the windows and the regiment marched into the house ot representatives, now Statuary hall, and also Into the senate chamber, now tho supreme court ot the United States. They discharged army rockets through tho roof of each wing, tore away the connecting bridge, and left the floors ot the two legislative chambers strewn with valuable papers, taken from the congressional library. Then they set fire to the building; but a heavy rainstorm bursting forth within an hour, succeeded tn extinguishing the flames before the walls were badly damaged. After these marauders had finished their pillage of the capltol, they marched on to the White House, where Mrs. "Dolly" Madison, forewarned of their approach, ripped the canvas of the famous An drews portrait of Washington from Its frame with her hairpin. Taking this and some valuable state archives with her, she was driven into the country, where she remained until the enemy had re tired. September 1. The British sloop Avon sunk by the American sloop-ot-war Wasp. September ll.-The battle of PlatUburg. The victory made Thomas Macdonough the hero of the country. The state ot New York gave htm 2.000 acres of land, and Vermont voted him an estate at Cumberland Head, overlooking the seen a of his triumph. Congress voted him the thanks of the nation and a gold medal of honor. "Star-ifpnnKletl Ilanner" Written." September 13 "The Star Spangled. Ban ner" was written by Francis Scott Key, during the battle ot Fort McHenry. At tho time. Key was district attorney for the District ot Columbia. Ho went Into Marxland to release a frlond taken by the British, witnessed this great battle, and whllo It was at the height ot Its fury, composed the verses that sub sequently formed one of the national anthems. September 21 Siege of Fort Erie raised by General Drummond, and our Wasp captured the British brig Atlanta. September 26 Gallant fight of our pri vateer General Armstrong with the British seventy-four-gun shlp-of-the-Uno Plantagenet, tn the harbor ot Fayal, one ot the Azores. September Centenary of the congress of Vienna. This body, composed of com missioners from various European states, met to readjust the map of Europe. After struggling with the great task of harmonizing the many conflicting claims, j the congress worked with an aim to setting everything back as nearly as possible In the shape tn which It was before the Napoleonic wars. Many thrones which Napoleon had overturned were righted, and the old despots whom he had dismissed were In vited to remount them. The clock was set back to the hour It had told when the Ba8tlle was attacked. November lJ-rCentury of the birth of General Joseph Hooker. "Thunderer" Printed by Steam. Novmber 28 A memorable day in tho annals of typography-that of the first perfected steam printing machine, Konlg, the Inventor, who first contrived a workv Ing press of this character on this date in 1814, made his successful trial by print ing 1.S0O copies ot the London Times, on one side, within an hour. His device was the Immediate forerunner ot the machine later perfected for printing on both sides ot the sheet December 19-BIrth c Edwin M. Stan, ton, war secretary of Lincoln's adminis tration, who was born at Steubenvllle, O. Lincoln himself said that he would un dertake no Important step without first consulting his secretary ot war, whose systcmatlsed Industry and comprehension of every phase of that crista, in its po litical, military and international aspocts, made him the hope ot his country during this period of unrest. Ho remained secretary of war after Lincoln was succeeded by Johnson, but the latter removed him. And It was be cause the senate reinstated Stanton that there began the quarrel culminating In Johnson's Impeachment. Stanton re mained in office while this entire dispute was In progress, but resigned as soon as Johnson Was acquitted. Lator he was appointed Justice . ot the supreme court, but died four days after his confirmation. December 23 "Battle of New Orleans began. December 25 Signing of the treaty of Ghent, which will be celebrated Christ mas day this year by tho International Peace congress and numerous other bodies. The American names associated with this treaty that brought about the settlement ot the war ot 1812 are those of John Adams, Henry Clay 'and Albert Gallatin. New York Post FROM SPOTLIGHT TO SHADOW Tragic Features tn the Life of the First Woman Lawyer In United Stntea. There were elements of tragedy In tho life of Phoebe Couzlns. Her very nature Invited that. She was endowed with more than common ability and more than common energy, but coupled with those traits there was a scorn of convention ality which caused her youthful Imagina tion to foresee a career for herself un Rke that of the women of her day. That was in the time when women of her type were called "strong-minded" and that term was regarded as one ot grave reproof. She bore the Inconveniences of her strong-mindedness and looked for ward to the hour when her Ideals should be comman ideals and she should be called a great woman. For years she must have believed that the goal ot ambition was at hand. She was praised, applauded, appointed to office, cheered upon the lecture platform and called upon for counsel when matters ot moment were on foot in Washington. She was the first woman to be admitted to the practice of law In the United States and that alono was enough to command attention. But there were other women as able as she and soon the woman lawyer was commonplace, while other women outstripped In tho race for leadership. Some Kot these lead ers were devoted' to the cause of suf frage alone. Others, like Frances Wll lard and Jane Addams, made fields ot their own and worked out their own meth cds. Her former friends were alienated, sho was growing old, her health was break ing; her youthful dreams were dead and the llfo that began so buoyantly ended In querulous complaining, and hectla outbursts against old associates and evils long since abated. The lite ot many a man has run a similar course and so will the life of many women It they seek the career that Phoebe Couzlns sought St Louis 'Republic Vltt Will Play with Tigers. RAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Jan. 24.-Oscar Vltt came to town from his ranch near Vallejo yesterday and announced that he had no intention of accepting Federal league offers and would return to the Detroit Americans next season.
