Live in History as the Inspiration of
Men Who Led the World in
Art and Learning.
“All inspiration comes from woman.”
In these words Castiglione sums up
medieval ideas and theories on the
subject. Hers it is to inspire man with
hope and courage on the battlefield
and in the council chamber, in the pur
suit of art and learning, in the higher
paths of virtue and religion, to point
the way upward and lift hearts from
?arth to heaven.
So it was that the boy Raphael grew
up in the enchanted air of Urbino un
der the fostering care of the good
duchess; so Isabella d'Este heard
young Ariosto recite the first cantos
of his great poem, or gave Mantegna
snd Costa themes for their pictures

and the windings of "smooth-sliding

Captain Bulling of the Bark Moonshine
Spins a Yarn Having to Do With
the Misadventure of Ship
wrecked Yankee Seaman.
Squinting thoughtfully through sun
reddened eyes, Captain Bulling of the
three-masted bark Moonshine, at an
chor off Staten Island after a voyage
of three months around the Horn from
Valparaiso, watched the tug carrying
i his crew dwindle in the shadows to
ward the Battery. ,
"We rescued a whale-eatin' Maine
sailor who was cast ashore on an is
land off Tierra del Fuego," the captain
remarked thoughtfully. "But we lost
him again, ’cause he couldn't get used
to our food. Whale oil is worse'n
liquor on a Yankee." And then, be
tween savage attacks on a terrible
cigar, he spun this harrowing yarn:
"We were heatin' it in a fair wind
off the Horn late one night when the
lookout sights a fire on an island to
our win'ard and sings out. I clapped
the glasses to my eye and saw a lot
of niggers wavin' and In front of 'em
is a big fellow who looks like a bear
“After a while a boat come back
with this sailor, Joshton, who is sit
ting in the stern, with his mouth open
in' and shuttin' like he is a clam.
“It seemed he was aboard the Mary
Banter, with a load of lumber from
'Frisco to Norfolk, 14 years ago. Corn
in' around the Horn they met up with
a blow and when Joshton woke up
next he found himself on this coral
island we took him off of.
“He must have fainted from hunger,
when he was woke up by niggers
pokin’ him, and when he yelled they
yelled, too, and fell down on their
faces and kicked iheir toes up.
"He signed he wanted food and the
niggers brought him whale blubber,
which he hit one over the head with,
signin’ for water They brought him
a bowl of whale oil and he nearly went
crazy. But that was all he could get,
so he chewed the whale blubber and
■ drank the oil slow and it put life into
"When I heard that yarn 1 yelled for
the cook to fix him a meal that would
make him forget his whale diet. He
looked at it with glistenin’ eyes when
it come, and filled his mouth, but he
can't eat it—and he can't drink any
; Twa'nt any use. He drank some
water one night and went staving
wild, pulling the lamp from the brack
et and drinking a quart of coal oil.
1 watched him. expectin' any minute
! to see him die. but it done him good
| Yessir, he smiled and said: 'That’s
fine 1 believe, captain, 1 could stand
| another ' So 1 had em broach a keg
1 o' oil we had on deck, and gave him
I a schooner of it.
"That oil agreed with him. But two
weeks ago—I'm off Hatteras—I heard
j a terrible roar from the galley and
hurried out. 1 saw Joshton lit up in
side so I couid see his 'innards, like
his outside with a lamp chimney.
| Flames was issuing from his mouth,
I and he leaped into the sea, right over
j the rail. As he hit the water there
; was an explosion, and he was gone.
“Joshton was just drinkin' his hour
ly scooper o’ coal oil, and he wan
! dered into the galley, just as the cook
was pulling a hot pie out of the oven.
Poor Joshton smelt that pie and it
brought back memories so strong he
couldn't resist. He reached over and
; picked that pie up and took a big bite,
j washing it down with a swaller of coal
| oil. The heat was too much, there
, was combustion or something, and he
lit up all over, being filled up for
years with whale oil, you know, and
in agony he jumped overboard."
Captain Bulling sighed morosely.
"I lost the address of his folks, too,"
