In tho iuo(l sorious manner and re
ported the ship's oaition. IIo was
en!y able to estimate his jawition by
dead reckoning a very uncertain op
ration. Karly one morning, when ho
thought they must be near llurbttdocii,
their llrst destination, he called a
young sailor to him, and said: "My
nan, I want you to go to the mast
head and look out for land; and when
you tight it do not call out 'Lund ho!'
In the usual manner, but come down
quietly and tell mo about it." Tho
allor ran up aloft, and when at alout

gator. Hardly had tho sailor reached

on dock, and walking to the naviga

aight llarbadoos, sirP" At precisely
wight bolls, sir," was the answer.
'What," cried the captain, "do you
pretend to bo able to figure to the
minute the time we will sight land?
Why, 1 never saw a navigator who
ould figure within two hours, and I
have suen some good oiios." At that
moment the bell struck eight times,
and the cry of "Land ho!" rang out
from the masthead. Tho captain took
his navigator's hand and said: "You,
air, are the finest navigator afloat, and
I shall report your splendid work to
tho department. " The captain kept
his word. Ho wrote to tho navy de
partment about tho excellent work of
his navigator, which was tho direct
oause of his promotion.
Of Douglas Jen-old, the late Ed
mund YaUss graphically related that,
as he was escorting tho wit one night
to the Bedford hotel, "up New stroot

when Yates inquired: "Wtio is that

Jerrold replied, looking around for an
Instant; "some member of the Humana

Jerrold died, Yates met him at dinner,
where also was Alliert Smith, whoso

married was then rumored. The host
having asked Smith to rin the boll

Ono of the relics of tho late South
ern boom can bo found in the Shenan
doah valley of Virginia. It is a ten-
acre cornfield, in tho midst of which
is a largo brick block and several
electric light poles. It was formerly
a 800-aere farm, and tho entire tract
was purchased by speculators for tho
purpose of building a town tliere. At
'ie 'le 'a'mor who sold the land
in the first place became so excited
that ho bought in lots for tho entire
amount of his purchaso money. Then
ho built tho block and became a mer
chant, using all ot his available funds.
Tho town was a failure, the property
sold for debts, and instead of a 300
acre farm, with money in bank, tho
old man has a ton-acre tract Ineutn

UNITED AMERICAN MECHANICS.
Its Orgaiiizallon and Principles How to
ItcriintP a Member.
We would respectfully calt your attention
to the fact that tliere is In this city a council
of the Order of United American Mechanics,
to which we would be happy to have you
Klre a moment's thought, and If favorably
uipreHHcd, would like your name proposed
The Order of United American Mechanics
was orKantned In Philadelphia on the 15th
day of July. 184.1. lis first inception was for
the protection of Mechanics and WorlttnR-
men alone, and for a number of years none
but operative mechanics and working-men
were admitted to Its membership! but the
great Interests of principles involved In Its
existence, caused a departure rrom tnat
plan, and the Order has for years existed and
exists today as an order of speculative me
chanic., recosaiiing every one possessed "f
the birth requirements, who works for
malntatnance either by hand or brain or
both as eligible to membership, and numbers
among Its members men of every profusslon,
and calling In life.
The objects of this order are to assist each
ether In obtaining employment: toencourage
each other In business; to establish a sick
and funeral fund: to establish a fund for
the relief of widows and orphans and to aid
members; and to aid members who. through
Providence, may be incapacitated from fol
lowing their usual vocations. In obtaining
situations suitable to their afflictions. The
membership of this order Is composed of
white male cttirens born In the United
States, or under tho protection of Its flag.
This order has existed for nearly fifty years
and Is at present, rapidly spreading through
out the United States. As an American Corn
and having the welfare of yourself and
fair ily at heart, as well as that of the nation
at large, we would most heartily invite you
tn hiwnmn a member of the U. A. M., as It is
the only Order in existence founded ea
neciallv to promote the Interests, elevate
the character and secure the happiness of
the American mechanic and business man,
It therefore appeals to the head and heart
of him who wields the pen as well as to mm
who swings the scythe or wields the sledge
hammer of the mechanic. In Its councils, a
free discussion of principles relating to the
fostering and care of the Interests of indl
vidua! members is permitted; but nothing of
a political or sectarian character Is ever al
lowed to be discussed, it has no affiliation
with such institutions as Trades Unions.
Knight or Labor. Sovereigns of Industry, or
the like, and desires not to control either
capital or labor, it would be doing a gross
Injustice to many of Its members, who are
taken t "om both classes. The membership
of the Orler Is scattered from Maine to Cali
fornia, and from all points comes Ihe glorious
news that the Order Is gaining great itrength
In all jurisdictions.
An endowment branch Is also connected
with the Order, both national and state,
which insures those who seek its benefits,
enabling them to leave a sum, which is in all
r.uiea substantially and promptly paid, to
the dear ones, when death marks Its mem
ben for Its own.
It seems very strange Indeed that the
American does not feel Inclined to become
so peculiarly national In his Ideas and as
sociations as do the English, trench, uer
nian, Irish, and other nationalities. Each
and all of the foregoing have their peculiar
national organiiatlons, and take pride in
same. But the American Joins order after
order, composed of a mixture ot nationali
ties, and lets his own countrymen severely
alone In the matter of secret and fraternal
We would not belittle any of the existing
secret beneficial associations. Far from It.
They are a power for good in the community.
But we do ask him who Is to the manor born
to turn his thoughts to home and native
land, so that he can Join in the glad refrain ;
"Thou art my native land.
I own thy fostring hand;
Though far from thee I roam.
Still thou art my home."
Americans, we of this Brotherhood appeal
to you to aid us la this work we are now
carrying on. You must either be for us or
against us. Choose quickly and let us show
to the country that we firmly believe In
American principles, American Industry,
American protection and American govern
ment. Strikes riots aad boycotting are
terms too harsh to be applied to American
Mechanics. Bonded together by promptings
of patrlottc affection, may this Order grow
and prnfcrena. until every man who calls
himself American can stand up and Say In
all sincerity, I own no man as mwo.or of mT
