HISTORY OF ONE OF THE OLD SHIPS
IN THE AMERICAN NAVY.
Dismantled In a. Modrrn Navy Yard, She
la the Objvct or I'rofound Veneration
uu the l'urt or Patriotic People or To
day, Who Are I'roud or Her.
Not many jR;ople may know that the
oM frigate Ctmsiituiion, so renowned in
oi:r annul, i.s still iiu luilil amon the
vessels of the navy. fcUio is dismantled,
as milit be exix'cted at her age, and is
kept in that cuu.iilion 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 tbe
days of her glory.
It was the Constitution that, after the
ma'us'plcious oiemntf on laud of our war
with Great Britain, eighty years ago,
led off a tient;s of Bple ndid victories on
tho ea. The honor of the first capture
of a British war vessel undoubtedly be
longs to the Essex, Captain David Por
ter, whose defeat of the Alert occurred
six days hefi;re the Constitution de
stroyed the Gnerriero.
Bu the ls.-.ex canned thirty-two 33
pounders and the Alert only twenty 18
poundera, 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 be a merchantman, were
compelled to quit their guns and within
eight minutes to strike 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 our 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 calm and
through breeze the flight and pursuit
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 Guer
riere. It was on Aug. 19, 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 year the Constitution, un
der Bainbridge, gained another gre;it
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 ad wounded
was very heavy.
Finally, in 1815, 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 Use or Electric Fang.
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 irou monitor Mian
tonomoh, 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
tricity. The Family Cake.
"You can't eat your cake and have it,"
said the wife to her complaining hus
band. "And I can"t er.t your.; ;:! ! -'-t rid of
it," he replied, branching off into an
other division of domestic infelicity.
In the Country Store.
Some of the snowbound passengers at
one of the depots near Utica were tell
insr stories the other day. and & travel
ing man was relating his exicrience in
a country store in a small town in Jef
ferson county. He said ho was there
nearly the entire forenoon, ami had oc
casion to note tho peculiarities of the
storekeeper, who carried a general stock,
but a pretty small one. Every little
while a customer would come into the
store and inquire for some article that
the merchant did not happen to have in
stock. For instance:
"Have you any dried beef, Mr. Cash
drawer?" "No, we have no dried beef today,
but we have some nice codfish. John,
show this lady the codlish."
"Do you keep any such thing as wicks
for those big, round lamp burners?"
"We generally do, but hapien to lie
out just now. We have some fine cot
ton clotheslines, though. John, show
the gentleman the clotheslines."
"My gals wanted me to bring them
home some confectioner's sugar. Have
you got any of it, Cashdrawer?"
! "Sold the last ounce about an hour
ago, Henry. We've got an excellent
quality of toilet soap, though. John,
show Mr. Adams the soap."
"Do you keep ready made flannel
"Have had them all winter, and sold
three to a lady yesterday, which cleaned
the stock out. But we have a large sup
ply of overalls. John, show this lady
the overalls." Utica Observer.
Civilization and Wilderness.
Upon the 1 ,500 miles of the shore of
Lake Superior there are living now less
than 150,000 persons, and these are
mainly in bustling cities like Duluth.
Superior and Marquette, in industrial
colonies like Calumet and Red Jacket,
or in struggling little ports like Fort
William and Port Arthur. Even there
the wilderness and primeval conditions
are face to face with the robust civiliza
tion which is shouldering its way as cap
ital is accustomed to do rather than as
natural growth usually asserts itself.
Not that it is not a wholly natural growth
which we find at all points on the lako
shore, for it is all in response to the inex
orable laws of supply and demand. Yet
the communities there have sprung into
being far apart from well settled regions
in answer to these laws.
Thus it happens that today one may
ride in an electric street car to the start
ing point for a short walk to a trout
stream, or one may take the steam rail
road and in an hour alight at a forest
station, breakfasting there, but enjoy
ing for luncheon a cut of the deer or a
dish of the trout or the partridge which
he has killed for the purpose. It is, so
to say, a region wherein the wholesale
fisherman with his steamboat disturbs
the red man who is spearing a fish for
Bttpper, where the wolf blinks in the
glare of the electric lamp, and where the
patent stump puller and the beaver work
side by side. Julian Ralph in Harpers
The Moqal Indians.
A hundred miles north of the Petrified
forest and well into the edge of the Ari
rona desert are the seven strange and
seldom visited Pueblo cities of MoquL
They all hj -e wildly unpronounceable
names, like laualpi, A-hua-tu and Mish-ongop-avi,
and all are built on the sum
mits of almost inaccessible mesas
islands of solid rock, whose generally
perpendicular cliff walls rise high from
the surrounding plain. They are very
remarkable towns in appearance, set
upon dizzy sites, with quaint terraced
houses of adobe, and queer little corrals
for the animals in nooks and angles of
the cliff, and giving far outlook across
the browns and yellows and the spectral
peaks of that weird plain. But they
look not half so remarkable as they are.
' The most remote from civilization of
all the Pueblos, the least affected by the
Spanish influence which so wonderfully
ruled over the enormous area of the
southwest, and practically untouched by
the later Saxon influence, the Indians of
the Moqui towns retain almost entirely
their wonderful customs of before the
conquest. Their languages are different
from those of any other of the Pueblos;
and their mode of life though to a hasty
glance the same is in many ways un
like that of tiieir brethren in New Mex
ico. Charles F. Lummis in St. Nicholas
A Detroit Man's Cane.
A Detroit man has a novel walking
cane that represents the work of odd
hours every day for six weeks. It is
made of old jiostage stamps of various
denominations and six nationalities
United States, Canadian, English,
French, German and Italian. It took
5,01 1 stamps to make a cane. The face
value of the stamps was $100. The sur
face of the cane, when the stamps were
all on, was filed smooth and finished un
til it glazed. A heavy gold knob com
pletes one of the handsomest and most
unique canes ever seen in Detroit.
Telling the Ilcea.
The curious custom of "telling the
bees" is observed in some parts of nearly
every country in the world. Those who
observe the custom always go to the bee
hives and tap gently on each one, then
Btoop and whisper under the cap or lid
that Marj-, Jane, Tbtjmas or William is
dead. This is done to keep the little
honeymakers from forsaking their place
of abode should they have to wait and
find out the news of the calamity them
selves. The custom is alluded to in
Whittier's poem, "Telling the Bees."
St. Louis Republic
East and West.
The failure of the people of the Atlan
tic states to understand the area, condi
tions, products and needs of the west is
not infrequently illustrated in national
legislation. The late Editor Bundy, of
the New York Mail and Express, said a
short time before his death:
"The peopla of tlie east know little
about the west, but 1 have always fon:il
that the people of the west were well in
formed about the east." San Frauci.-c
