I have often been asked how wo know
that Columbus landed on Wntling's isl
and, nnd how we, In a few days, settled
a question which historians nnd geogra
phers havo quarreled about for many
years. I will tell you. It was simply by
going nt tho mystery in true American
fnshion. With ono or two exceptions
nil tho men who havo written witli morn
or less learning on this question havo
doiuHtyvithout vi'iHng fti person tho
iilantUwhioh they discussed. , j
' In this wdy fivoislands 'liAvbLeen put
forward as tho scene of tho great discov
ery, and men sitting at homo in their
llbrarios, ivith books and chaits in their
hands, havo written that otiu or other of
thebo Islands was tho truo San Salvador
of Columbus. Wo did more thnn this,
Wo took tho books nnd tho charts, em
bodying all that any one had loarned or
thought about tho question hitherto, and
with these in hand went to tho places
which seemed to havo tho greatest evi
donco ju their favor.. As Justin Winsor,
tho'librarianof'Hnfvanl university, says
in his "Critical History of America," th
only evidence to bo found in history cr
Ibrarles of tho Identity of the Island at
Which Columbus lauded Is the journal
of Columbus himself. All the early
maps and charts, and all theories based
on bomcthltig beside this journal, are ut
The question thcroforo became In
reality a very simple one. It was to
find an Island which in all Important
respects agreed with tho description
which Columbus gavo of his Han Sal
vador, or first island, In his own words
Any island chosen to meet this require
ment must meet It In two ways first as
to the physical features of tho island It.
self, nnd second ns to Its relative post
Hon among tho other islands which Co
lumbus visited and described. It was
by going to tho Bahamas with Colum
bus' journal In hand and cntntully
studying tho ground, that wo womnhle
to pcrectvo, quickly and without i
shadow of a doubt, that Waiting's Is tin
only Island which fills tho bill,
Everything which Columbus found nt
his San Salvador wo found at Wat ling's
the level Island, the large lagoon in
tho iniddlo, tho still harbor with tho
reefs running around it, the "piece of
land like an Island, though not one, yet
which could easily be tnndo an Island,"
tho bay In which In nil probability ht
nnchored, ami from which ho must hnvp
rowed in his bouts "to tho ninth north
east to sen tho other side of tho Island,
which lay on tho other side from Hit
east." Columbus did not dc.sciibo many
of tho features of tho Island nt which lu
touched, but bin description of what h.
did see must bo accepted as npprosl
matcly accurate. If we do not do that
there is no evidence, and history is Im
possible Columbus was nu experienced
navigator, nnd it must bo admitted that
when ho said ho saw n lagoon ho saw
one, and thnt when hu said he towed to
tho north northeast ho must have rowed
very nearly in that course
How important this Ih will appear
when 1 tell you thnt Wntllng's Is the
only Island In 'tho Bahamas which has u
largo lagoon in itn middle. It is the only
island 6f thoso now Kcnously considered
ns tho possible hcciid of tho discovery
which has a coast along which Columbus
could have rowed in a north northeast
direction "to beotlio other side." Satuan.i
has no such coast, nor has Cat island,
and Turk's island nnd Marigunn.i,
though once proposed, nro no longer con
sidered, it having linen concluslvely
shown that neither of them could lime
been San Salvador. On neither Sainnun
nor (.'at island Is thero n spot at which
Columbus could havo lauded and rowed
thenco north northeasterly to seo the
other side. Neither of thoso Islands hu.i
a lagoon, largo or small, nor nny sort of a
lagoon, within its shores; neither in tho
middle, ns Columbus says it was in San
Salvador, nor nnywhero else.
On leaving Snn Salvador, Columbus
sailed southwest, nnd after going some
distance "saw so many islands that he
did not know which ono to go to." This
statement has puzzled many writers, but
wo can explain it very easily. Wo also
Railed southwest from Wntllng's, and
after going some distance eleven islands
appeared to lie beforo us. Some were
largo and somo small. Wo afterward
learned, what Columbus may have never
learned, that what appenred to bo cloven
islands was merely tho eleven highest
points of ground in two islands namely,
Rum Cay and Conception island. Co
lumbus says he tnndo for the larger ono,
which is Hum Cay. At this second island,
ho says, ha saw another one appearing
largo in tho west.
From Rum Cay n largo island does
nppear in tho west Long island and if
you sail along tho coast of Long island
you will find that it is about seventy
fivo miles long, and that it lies north
northwest nnd bouth southeast. That is
just what Columbus said of it, nnd ho
described its harbor Clarence harbor
very accurately, and gavo such other
identification of this island as his third
Island, that tho leading writers of the
day agieo that Long island was tho third
island. Tho identity of Long island
with Columbus' third island being set
tled and almost universally conceded,
what Is proven? Simply that Rum Cay
was tho second island, becauso it is thu
only island from which Long island can
bo seen to tho west, and Rum Cay be
ing the second island. Wntllng's is clearly
tlm first, because it is tho only island
lying northeast of Rum Cay.
TUB TOUItlST AND TIIK lOUANA.
Thero Is no other Island which nicetn
Columbus' description of his Sau,Salva
dor;tthero is tjono other from whic'.i n
course can betraced, following Colum
bus' journal, without getting lost aud
bewildered. Either lino of evidence is
as strong as the circumstantial evidence
on which tunny n man has been sent to
tho gallows; but whon you follow both
lines, nnd find them bath focusing nt
Wntling's nnd at no other point, tho thing
is settled; doubt is dispelled, certainty
Thero are hundreds of other reasons
why wo know that Columbus first laud
ed ou Wntllng's island, nnd I wish I hud
space to tell you all about them, even at
tho risk of wearying you with history
and geography. Our sojourn in San Sal
vador was almost as adventureless as
was Columbus', Ho said tho only ani
mals ho saw wero lizards, and these
were.tbe only wild.animnls that wo saw
Ono of our party was out ono day, near
tho spot where Columbus landed, climb
ing trees tq catch some of tho beautiful
birds. ' While out bn 'a litiib'ho chance I
j look up, and there, but a fow feet
l way, was n largo and hideous Iguana,
nlmklng Its forked tail nnd showing its
Tho vlltor from tho far north did not
know anything about Igunnns, nnd In a
paroxysm or flight fell out ot tho tres,
lauding in a prickly pear hush fifteen
feet below. Hero the luckless man's
body was pierced by many cruel thorns,
nnd whojU he was finally extricated ho
was literally as full of plus ns a pin
cushion; and though wo laughed nt him
n great deal it renlly was no laughing
matter, for during the next six hours
probably thirty or forty thorns, varying
in length front half nu Inch to an Inch,
wero pulled out of his flesh with pinchers.
Another adventure was In going
through tho very coral reefs of which
Columbus said ho was afraid when ho
took his boats and rowed along the
coast "to see tho other side." Columhim
prudently steered outsido tho reel's, but
our native boatmen, who know every
rock and crag and aro perfectly fearless,
steered an inside course. Such a voyage
( had never taken beforo aud never want
to take again. With sail up and a still
breeze blowing our llttlo craft shifted
and enrecued nnd threaded her way
through a lubyrlnth of ragged and ugly
tocks, somo showing above tho surfacu
aud others half hidden under the water.
To htrlko any ot these sharp aud treach
erous rocks meant a hole in the bottom
ot tho boat big enough to drop a man
thtnugh aud a hwIiii for life.
But with a succession of shouts from
tho pilot In tho bow, laconically to

and "Don't lulF noddln 'tall!" each ono
of theso and tho manner which It was
obeyed meaning perhaps life and death
to ns. Wo swung through tho narrow
passages, grated thu bottom or side of
the boat ou thu coral rocks with a sug
gest! vo sound that made us all shiver,
and finally landed safo and sound ou
board our steamer in Graham harbor.
CONCERNING PRECIOUS STONES.

New . York, July 10. From timo
immemorial the siqierstition has ex
isted that every person's health, hap
piness, luck nnd love would bo favor
ably influenced by the wearing of a
precious stono having some sort of
occult harmony or "correspondence"
witli tho mouth of birth. There wero
oven thoso to whom the fateful opal
would bring good fortune if they wero
born in October. Until recently those
notions could only be said to manifest
themselves objectively In a sporadic- way,
but of lato they havo become epidemic.
Manufacturing jewelers report an unpre

values cheap imitation stones, doublets
and genuine gems, ranging in prico from
fl.nOupto $100, and even more, at re
tail. Not many of tho more expensive
ones are carried in stock, real stones
being set to order in such rings as may
lie selected. As a rulo, thoso furnished
by tho dozen do not rank higher than
doublets, which tho retailer can well af
ford to sell Tor $2 or $2.50.
Inquiry as to tho order of association
between months aud stones reveals somo
lack of agreement among jewelers, but
this appears to bo tho order generally
accepted as orthodox:
January, garnet; February, amethyst;
March, hyacinth; April, diamond; May,
emerald; Juno, pearl; July, ruby; Au
gust, moonstone; September, sapphire;
October, opal; November, topaz; De
In somo arrangements theso substitu
tions aro made: March, bloodstono; June,
agato; August, sardonyx. Tho truo in
wardness of such changes perhaps lies in
the manufacturer having ou hand, or be
ing ablo to procure more cheaply, cet tain
other stones than thoso called for, and
ho may bo conscientious and possibly
oven correct In saying they will do
quito as well. If tho expected virtuo
exists in tho real stone, It is not readily
apparent that effect may bo expected
from glass imitations and doublets,
which contain not an atom of tho gems
they resemble In color aud cut only. Tho
orroueous supposition is commonly en
tertained that doublets aro in part
composed of slices of tho real stones they
represent, but in fact they aro simply
thin bits of rock crystal cemented on
bases of tinted glass.
The hyacinth, pearl, moonstone, opal,
turquoiso, bloodstono, agato and sar
donyx aro fitiished flat or rounded, while
all tho others aro cut to present facets
which icfract light. Moonstones, agates,
garnets, topazes aud small pearls aro bo
cheap that one's chances for getting real
ones aro much better than in buying any
of tho others in tho list. J, II. O.

Ab a produoer ol literature Chicago 1mr

hitherto alow to recognlco her pre -eminent
worth, and envious, porhnpi, of liar midden
and brilliant development, are nt last
compelled to ncknowlcdgo that tho posi

lug one. Chicago has always beau Imbued
with n truo literary instinct, but aa the
tender sapling must need bo Inclined, and
as tho llttlo llowor must needs Imi nurtured,
and liutnan genius Itself must needs bo
cherished atitl schooled, In order to Iniuro
the shade, tho fragrnnco and tho accom

possibility, ao has It I won necessary thnt
Chicago, gifted beyond tho ordinary, should
undergo n season ot discipline beforo blon
o ml n a out Into that splendid citato In
which wo now find her. This season of
probation ha been a long nnd tedious one,
and wq rcjolco thnt It Is ended,
A uotablo literary taste has beau diffused
among our people. We havo hnd learned
and graceful works from tho pons ot such
pioneer authors as Hund, Bristol, Poolo,
Mathews, Kirklnnd, Urowuo, McQovorn,
Rend, Frclhcrgur and othirv; tho cxamplo
afforded by theso vigorous and gifted
precursors, avnnt coureurs nnd prodro
mos, no less than their fnscluatlnu
writings themselves, has engendered In thu
bosoms ot tho multitude an ambition to
ward exploits In the realm of literary com
position. "How shall wo set about tho endeavors
to which ire aro Inclined" la the question
that has been asked over and over again.
This Macedonian cry has finally (we ro
Jolco to see) been answered by tho nppenr
anco of n voluuto entitled "Thu Complete
Chicago Letter Writer, with a Glossary,"
nu essay calculated aud likely to cultivate
a pure- nnd beautiful literary stylo In tho
midst of us, so that even as ho who runs
tuny read, so also he who hustles may
write ay, In good sooth, nnd write ornate
ly and persuasively When ono achieves
n correct epistolary stylo ho hits mastered
tho most difficult part of tho literary art.
There is nouo that will deny this. Indeed,
we all know that tho most charming litera
ture thnt has survived tho wreck of year
comes to us In the letters of thu ancients
those of Pliny, ot Sctuproulous, of Horaco,
of Thlrrslns, of Chesterfield nnd of St. Paul.
A careful study of thu "Complete Letter

tho midst of us, Is certain to ralso up In
Chicago a host of litterateurs whoso per'
formances will put to tho blush nil pre
