SMOKED FOR OVER
Has been popular with smokers everywhere for over twenty-five years.
It is Just as Good Now as Ever.
Its Flavor, Fragrance and Purity have contributed largely to the
growing popularity which pipe smoking enjoys. Pipe smoking is
growing in favor because finer, sweeter and better tobacco can be had
in this form and at much less cost than in cigars.

HISTORY OF ONE OF THE OLD SHIPS
IN THE AMERICAN NAVY.
Dlaruantled in a nioli-rn Navy Yard, She
la the lject of I'Tofound Yeneratlun
on tli I'urt t,r I'tttriotlo I'eople of To
il U), liu Are) i'ruud of Her.
Not many poile may know that the
old friat- Constitution, so renowmtl in
our annals, is htill inclndfd anions the
vessels of the navy. She is dismantled,
a.s mitfht 1? expecteil at her aye, and is
kept in that condition at Portsmouth,
N. II. She is a craft of 2,200 tons dis
placement, and now carries no battery
in place of the forty-four guns of the
days of her glory.
It was the Constitution that, after the
inausj Scions opening on land of our war
with limit Britain, eighty years ago,
led off a series of splendid victories on
the sea. The honor of the first capture
of a British war vessel undoubtedly be
longs to the Essex, Captain David Por
ter, whoso defeat of the Alert occurred
six days before the Constitution de
stroyed the (iuerriere.
But the Essex carried thirty-two im
pounders and the Alert only twenty Im
pounders, so that very soon after open
ing fire the crew of the little British
craft, which, having captured one of our
transports had made up to the Essex,
taking her to le a merchantman, weie
compiled to quit their guns and within
eight minutes to btrike their flag. This
conquest, though gratifying, was in
evitable, whereas that of the Constitu
tion was gained over a craft nearer her
own size and strength.
But while yielding the laurels of prior
ity to the gallant Essex on this score,
the Constitution, under Captain Isaac
Hull, can claim them again for success
in a trial of seamanship between herself
and a British squadron. Till then af
fairs were looking gloomy for us at sea
as well as on land. The British frigate
Belvidere, while convoying a fleet of
merchantmen, had escaped from a
whole squadron of our warships, where
as onr Nautilus had struck to an
English squadron, being the first war
ship captured on either side. Under
these untoward circumstances the Con
stitution, returning from Europe, fell in
with a British squadron led by the
Africa, a 64-gun ship.
During four days she was chased by
this squadron. Through cairn and
through breeze the flight and pursnit
went on. At one time she had boats out
towing her; at another her crew were
hauling upon a kedge anchor that had
been carried out and dropped a long dis
tance ahead. On the fourth day the
longed for wind came, and with every
sail set the Constitution drew away from
her pursuers, the scene when five frig
ates were standing on the same tack and
the Constitution was showing her heels
to her enemies being often recounted
eighty years ago. Some of the historians
describe this as the first of our triumphs
on the sea in that war.
But in our time, of course, the fame
of the Constitution is more familiarly
associated with her capture of the Ouer
riere. It was on Aug. l'J, 1812, that the
two vessels met, both eager for a fight.
The scene was off the coast of Massachu
setts. The British craft, commanded
by the gallant Dacres, was first to open
fire, but Hull maneuvered his vessel into
the right position before he replied. The
enemy's mizzenmast soon went by the
board, followed by her mainmast. When
she struck she was, in fact, so complete
ly used up that she could not be taken
into port and had to be blown up.
The Constitution was superior in ton
nage and complement, carried more
guns and threw a much heavier weight
of metal in her broadsides; still the ves
sels were near enough matched for the
victory to produce a tremendous impres
sion on both sides of the ocean. Alison
describes the "shock of this unwonted
naval disaster" in England, where the
belief that Britannia ruled the waves
was so profound that the American navy
had seemed to be a mere mouthful for
That same j ear the Constitution, un
der Bainbridge, gained another great
victory over the Java, off the coast of
Brazil. The Java, like her predecessor,
was a 38-gun ship, and in the battle she
lost foremast and mizzenmast, besides a
part of her bowsprit; while, to complete
the parallel, like the Guerriere, she was
so wrecked in the fight that she had to
be blown up. It was a great exhibition
of good seamanship and superior gun
nery on the part of the American vessel;
for, as Cooper says, 'the Java had been
literally picked to pieces by shot, spar
following spar until she had not one
left." Her loss in killed and wounded
was very heavy.
Finally, in 1813, under command of
Commodore Stewart, the famous old ship
made a double capture of the British
frigate Cyane and sloop Levant.
Old Ironsides, as she had come to be
called during the war, was launched at
Boston in 1797; and who knows but
when the hundredth anniversary of that
event comes around she may again be
put into commission, so as to receive cen
tennial honors? New York Sun.
A Novel Vs of Electric FaiiB.
The little electric motor and the swift
ly revolving fan are familiar objects,
and many a heated brow has been cooled
by their combination. But the electric
fan has recently found its way into a
strange place, none other than the tur
rets of the powerful iron monitor Mian
touomoh, where the company has placed
four of its perfected fan outfits. These
are not, as might be supposed, to cool
off the gunners, but to blow away the
smoke from the guns. This certainly is
a novel use for the electric fan. Elec

An Oillcrr li IIk MllitlK.
"Did it e r occur to you," said a West
Point graduate and a national guards
man the other day, "what it means to lu
a popular oliicer in the national guard?
Something quite different, 1 assure you,
from ln ing a popular ohker in the regu
lar army. Why? l'or this reason: In
the army, if an officer takes care of his
uu-ii, sees that they get their clothing
and pay promptly, looks out lor their in
terests in case they are so unfortunate
as to bo looked up in the guardhouse,
no matter how strict a disciplinarian ho
may le, or how he may make the men
stand around, he will bo jopular with
them. But here in the guard the rela
tionship between officer and men is en
tirely changed. The rank and file, who
are men that need nosuiervisioii of their
personal affairs, exjK'ct their officers to
be 'good fellows' socially.
"An officer need not bo a strict disci
plinarian to be very popular, but it is
only fair to say that the majority of na
tional guard officers, esjiecially in some
of our crack commands, have just as
thorough an understanding of military
requirements as regular army officers.
Everything else being equal, therefore,
the popularirj' of tho men may bo com
pared as that of a man among employees
or among his club equals. 1 mention
these facts to ishow how easily a regular
army officer could fail to succeed in tin;
guard, and, vice versa, how impossible it
would be for a guard officer, w'hose easy
going society ways are an essential part
of his success in his rank, to make a
name for himself in the army," Brook
Pedigree of ItoKton'a "Four Hundred."
"Every chap in Boston has been run

uatured sou of the Emerald Isle yester
day at the North End mission, "and
some o' them fellers up there on Bacon's
Hill, as have been putting their names
in the Foor Hundred lately, ought to be
ashamed of theirselves for trying to de
save people. Sure, one of thein that goes
a strutting about with his eyeglass came
from just the same stock as meself and
has nearly blinded his two eyes looking
for his name in the book of martyrs.

around the vessel.

Fraud Worth More Than the Original.
The art frauds that have taken shape
and substance, which remain to incum
ber the world as false com ever circulat
ing from hand to hand, are of all times
and periods. The archaeology of fraud
even has become a science; some of the
overt and acknowledged frauds them
selves have attained the status of pre
cious and coveted works, more valuable
in the strange gyrations in the wheel of
time than the originals they simulated.
Michael Angelo's marble Cupid, for in

and mutilated, buried in a vineyard, and
dug up again himself, all for the express
"taking in" a certain cardinal, collector
of antique marbles and contemner of
modern art, is a case in point. If this
particular Cupid could now be identified
it would probably be worth more than
the most beautiful genuine antique work
of its kind which Italian soil still en

After I had been riding three or four
months, and had lived on beef and water,
I found myself in a condition which I can
only describe by saying that I felt that no
exertion could kill me, although I con
stantly arrived so completely exhausted
that I could not speak; yet a few hours'
sleep upon my saddle on the ground al
ways so completely restored me that for
a week I could daily be upon my horse
before sunrise, could ride till two or
three hours after sunset, and have really
tired ten or twelve horses a day. This
will explain the immense distances which
people in South America are said to ride,
which I am confident could only be done
on beef and water:
To Cut Claits with Shears.
A, sheet of glass a window pane for
example can be cut as easily as a sheet
of cardboard. The secret consists in
keeping the glass, the shears and the
hands under water during the operation.
The glass can be cut in straight or
curved lines without a break or a crack.
This is because the water deadens the
vibrations of the shears and the glass.
If the least part of the shears comes out
of the water the vibration will be
sufficient to mar the success of the
