FUL SEA TRAGEDY.
lll-Fated Berlin Is Resting on Rem
nant of Steamer Leeds, Which Was
Lost on Same Spot In 1882 Prince
Henry a Hero.
Hook of Holhuid, Feb. 23. Largely
as a result of the courage and deter
mination of Prlnco Henry of Tho
Netherlands, tho prlnco consort, that
which appeared to bo an impossible
tnsk, has been achieved and tho he
roic and unflinching efforts of tho
Dutch lifeboat men have succeeded In
rescuing allvo eleven more of tho sur
vivors of the Ill-fated steamer Berlin.
This makes tho number of Raved ilf
teen out of the Ml who wore on board
Tho gallant Dutch lifeboat men wnro
rewarded after more than thirty hours
of hard and dangerous work. Buffeted
and driven back time nfter time, they
refused to relax their attempts to res
cue tho handful of shipwrecked peo
ple, and llunlly at 3:30 the receding
tide nnd some improvement in tho
weather lining made the conditions
easier, their long light was crowned
Although several of the persons
rescued were in tho last stages of ex
haustion, they are on the road to re
covery and some of them have been
able to tell of their awful experiences.
Tho names of tho saved passengers
follow: Mr. Young, Mr. Broederson,
Frank in Battel, Frauleln Gnbler, Frau
Schraeder. Under the reviving Influence of food
the survivors soon became coinpnta
lively cheerful. Frauleln Battel and
Fran Schraeder, although practically
starving nnd with their hands and
fcot terribly frostbitten, showed re
Relating her experiences, Fran
Schraeder said: "I noor can forget
the terrible hours of anguish and de
spair we passed through while watch
ing the gallant efforts of the crews of
the lifeboats and tugs to snatch us
from the jaws of death. Mountainous
death-cold billows broke over the ship
every minute and tho dense, blinding
blizzard hid from us the comforting
lights of the Hook. We watched tho
operations of our rescuers with breath
less nnxlely, but when wo finally un
derstood their actions and saw there
was a chance of life, wo could hardly
believe our eyes. Exhaustion, expo
sure, hunger and fear had mndo us so
miserable that even the joy of llfo
Drought no smile to our faces and no
words to our lips."
It now appeals certain that after tho
catastrophe there wero many more
than fifteen persons remaining on the
wreck, and that most of them were
washed off by tho waves. One woman
was carried away just bcroro the res
cue was olfected. Tho survivors hud
dled together for wnnnth and tho
members of the crew who wore still
alive shared their food with tlc oth
ers. There was not enough to go
around, however, and for twenty-four
hours not a morsel of food passed
the lips of theso unfortunate people.
Tho survivors highly pralso Prince
Henry, who personally assisted tho
women nnd had gloves provided for
them. Tho prlnco wrapped his fur
overcoat about ono woman.
It has been discovered thnt tho
Berlin Is resting on tho remains oi
the British stenmor Leeds, which was
lost on tho same spot in 1882.

A RARE BIRD.
Why an American Showman Could
Not Got It For His Museum.
When the eminent French writer
Ferdinand Brunellero visited thu Unit
oil States some years ago, lecturing at
Harvard and other leading unlvc-d-tles,
he had au amusing experience,
which he described In the recollections
of his American tour which he after
ward published. The great litterateur
devoted much attention to the life and
works of Bossuet,who was often styled
the "Eagle of Meaux," on account per
haps of lrt-i lofty (lights of eloquence,
i This fact, with other. pertaining to
I his literary career, was mentioned by
some dally papers during his slay In
, this country. It caught the eyes of a
1 shrewd American showman, who, how
' ever, got somewhat mixed over the
meaning of the allusion. Ho wrote tho
following letter to the French author:
Sir I bavo Just heard thnt a certain
Meaux eagle, very i-clt'liralcd. It .ippoar.s,

your eloquence, would certainly not fall to

will let mo bavo tho rare bird ami tell inu
how to feed It, you can miote your own

"rare bird". had been dead for nearly
I00 years. '
