CHAPTER XV. ( Continued. )
"I must say , " replied Philip , "that ,
whenever I have fallen in with that
vessel , mischief has ever followed. "
"Vessel ! why , what was there In that
vessel to frighten you ? She carried
too much sail , and she has gone
"She never goes down , " replied one
of the seamen.
"No ! no ! " exclaimed many'voices ;
"but we shall if we do not run back. "
"Pooh ! nonsense ! Mynheer Vander-
decken , what say you ? "
"I have already stated my opinions ,
replied Philip , who was anxious , if
possible , to see the ship one more in
port , "that the best thing we can do
is to bear up for Table Bay. "
"And , captain , " continued the old
seaman who had just spoken , "we are
all determined that it shall be so ,
whether you like it or not ; so up with
"the helm , my hearty , and Mynheer
Vanderdecken will trim the sails. "
"Why ! what is this ? " cried Captain
Barentz. "A mutiny on hoard of the
Vrow Katrina ? Impossible ! The
Vrow Katrina ! the best ship , the fast
est in the whole fleet ! "
"The dullest old rotten tub ! " cried
one of the seamen.
"What ! " cried the captain ; "what do
I hear ? Mynheer Vanderdecken , con
fine that lying rascal for mutiny. "
"Pooh ! nonsense ! he's mad , " replied
the old seaman. "Never mind him ;
come , Mynheer Vanderdecken , we wi"
obey you ; but the helm must be up im
The captain stormed , hut Philip , by
acknowledging the superiority of his
vessel , at the same time that he blam
ed the seamen for their panic , pointed
out to him the necessity of compli
ance , and Mynheer Barentz at last
consented. The helm was put up , the
sails trimmed , and the Vrow Katerina
rolled heavily before the gale. Toward
the evening the weather moderated ,
and the sky cleared up ; both sea and
wind subsided fast ; the leaking de
creased , and Philip was in hopes that
in a day or two they would arrive safe
ly in the bay.
As they steered their course , so did
the wind gradually decrease , until at
last it fell calm ; nothing remained of
the tempest but a long heavy swell
which set to the westward , and before
which the Vrow Katerina was gradu
ally drifting. This was a respite to
the worn-out seamen , and also to the
troops and passengers who had been
cooped below or drenched on the main-
The upper-deck was crowded ; moth
ers basked in the warm sun , with their
was filled with the wet clothes , which
were hung up to dry on every part of
the shrouds , and the seamen were
busily employed in repairing the in-
iurles of the gale. By their reckoning ,
hey were not more than fifty miles
from Table Bay , and each moment
hey expected to see the land to the
southward of it. All was again mirth ,
ind everyone on board , except Philip ,
considered that danger was no more
to be apprehended.
The sun had set before Philip had
quitted the gangway and gone down
aelow. Commending himself , and
those embarked with him , to the care
af Providence , he at last fell asleep ;
but before the bell was struck eight
imes , to announce midnight , he was
iwakened by a rude shove of the shoul-
ier , and perceiving Krantz , the second
mate , who had the first watch , stand-
ng by him.
"By the heaven above us , Vander-
lecken , you have prophesied right. Up
quick ! The ship's on fire ! "
"On fire ! " exclaimed Vanderdecken ,
umping out of his berth "where ? "
"The main hold. "
"I will up immediately , Krantz. In
the meantime , keep the hatches on and
rig the punips. "
In less than a minute Philip was on
3eck , where he found Capt. Barent ,
who had also been informed of the
ease by the second mate. In a few
words all was explained by Krantz ;
there was a strong smell of fire pro-
seeding from the main hold ; and , on
removing one of the hatches , which he
lad done without calling for any as
sistance , from a knowledge of the pan
ic it would create , he found that the
lold was full of smoke ; he had put it
on again immediately , and had only
made it known to Philip and the cap
"Thanks for your presence of mind , "
replied Philip ; "we have now time to
reflect quietly on what is to be done ,
f the troops and the poor women and
children knew their danger , their
alarm would have much impeded us ;
but how could she have taken fire in
the main hold ? "
"I never heard of the Vrow Katerina
taking fire before , " observed the cap
tain ; "I think it is impossible. It must
be some mistake she is "
"I now recollect that we have in our
cargo several cases of vitriol in bottles
tles , " interrupted Philip. "In the gale
they must have been disturbed and
broken. I kept them above all , In case
of accident ; this rolling , gunwale un
der , for so long a time , have occa
sioned one of them to fetch way. "
"That's it , depend upon it , " observed
"I did object to receive them , " stat
ing that they ought to go out in some
vessel which was not so incumbered
with troops , so that they might re
main on the main deck ; but they re
plied that the invoices were made out
and could not be altered. But now to
act. My idea is to keep the hatches
on , so as to smother it if possible. "
"Yes , " replied Krantz , "and at the
same time cut a hole in the deck just
large enough to admit the hose and
pump as much water as we can into
the hold. "
"You are right , Krantz ; send for the
carpenter and set him to work. I will
turn the hands up , and speak to the
men. I smell the fire now very strong ;
there is no time to lose. If we can
only keep the troops and the women
quiet we may do something. "
Two hours later , however , the fire
had gained such headway that they
had to take measures to abandon the
The column of fire now ascended
above the maintop licking with its
forky tongue the topmast rigging and
embracing the mainmast in its folds ;
and the loud roar with which it as
cended proved the violence and rapid
ity of the combustion below , and how
little time there was to be lost. The
lower and main decks were now so fill
ed with smoke that no one could re
main there ; some poor fellows , sick
in their cots , had long been smothered ,
for they had been forgotten. The swell
had much subsided , and there was not
a breath of wind ; the smoke which
rose from the hatchways ascended
straight up in the air , which , as the
vessel had lost all steerage way , was
fortunate. The boats were soon in
the water , and trusty men placed in
them ; the spars were launched over ,
arranged by the men in the boats and
lashed together. All the gratings were
then collected and firmly fixed upon
the spars for the people to sit upon ;
and Philip's heart was glad at the
prospect which he now had of sav
ing the numbers which were em
But their difficulties were not snr-
mounted the fire now had communi
cated to the main deck , and burst out
of the port holes amidships and the
raft which had been , foiming along
side was obliged to be drifted astern ,
where it was more exposed to the
swell. This retarded their labor , and ,
in the meantime , the fire was making
rapid progress- the mainmast , which
had long been burning , fell over the
side with the lurching of the vessel ,
and the flames out of the main deck
ports soon showed their points above
the bulwarks , while volumes of smoke
were poured in upon the upper deck ,
almost suffocating the numbers which
were crowded there ; for all commun
ication with the fore part of the ship
had been for some time cut off by
the flames , and everyone had retreated
aft. The women and children were now
carried on to the poop , not only to re
move them further from the suffocat
ing smoke , but that they might be
lowered down to the raft from the
It was about 4 o'clock in the morn
ing when all was ready , and by the
exertions of Philip- and the seamen ,
notwithstanding the swell , the women
and children , were safely placed on
the raft , where it was considered that
they would be less in the way , as the
men. could relieve each other in pull
ing when they were tired.
After the women and children had
been lowered down , the troops were
next ordered to descend by the lad
ders ; some few were lost in the at-
; empt , falling under the boat's bottom
and not reappearing ; but two-thirds of
them were safely put on the berths
ihey were ordered to take by Krantz ,
who had gone down to superintend this
important arrangement. Such had been
the vigilance of Philip , who had re
quested Capt. Barentz to stand over
the spirit room hatch , with pistols , un
til the smoke on the main deck render
ed the precaution unnecessary , that
not a single person was intoxicated ,
and to this might be ascribed the order
and regularity which had prevailed
during this trying scene. But before
one-third of the soldiers had descend
ed by the stern ladder , the fire burst I
out of the stern windows with a violence
lence that nothing could withstand ;
spouts of vivid flame extended several
feet from the vessel , roaring with.the
force of a blowpipe ; at the same time
the flames burst through all the after
ports of the main deck , and those re
maining on board found themselves en
circled with fire and suffocated with
smoke and heat. The stern ladders
were consumed in a minute and drop
ped into the sea ; the boats which had
been receiving the men were obliged
also to back astern from the intense
heat of the flames ; even those on the
raft shrieked as they found themselves
scorched by the ignited fragments
which fell on them as they were en
veloped in an opaque cloud of smoke ,
which hid from them those who still
remained on the deck of the vessel.
Philip attempted to speak to those on
board , but he was not heard. A scene
of confusion took place which ended in
gieat loss of life. The only object ap-
pcared to bo who should first escape ,
though , except by jumping overboard ,
there whs no escape. Had they waited ,
and ( as Philip would have pointed out
to them ) have one by one thrown
themselves into the sea , the men in
the boats were fully prepaied to pick
* hem up ; or had they climbed out to
* hp crd of the lateen mlzzen-yard ,
which was lowered do\vn , they mi ht
have descended safely by a rope , but
the scorching of the flames which
surrounded them and the suffocation
from the smoke was overpoweringa.nd
most of the soldiers sprang over the
taffrail at once , or as nearly so as pos
sible. The consequence was , that there
were thirty or forty in the water at the
same time , and the scene was as heart
rending as it was appalling ; the sail
ors in the boats dragging them in as
fast as they could the women on the
raft , throwing to them loose garments
to haul them in ; at one time a wife
shrieking as she saw her husband
struggling and sinking into eternity ;
at another , curses and execrations
from the swimmer who was grappled
with by the drowning man , and drag
ged with him under the surface. Of
eighty men who were left of the troops
on board at the time of the bursting
out of the flames from the stern windows
dews , but twenty-five were saved.
There were but few seamen left on
board with Philip , the major part hav
ing been employed in making the rafter
or manning the three boats ; those
who were on board remained by his
side , regulating their motions by his.
After allowing full time for the sol
diers to be picked up , Philip ordered
the men to climb out to the end of
the lateen yard which hung on the
taffrail , and either to lower themselves
down on the raft if it was under , or
to give notice to the boats to receive
them. The raft had been dropped fur
ther astern by the seamen , that those
on board of it might not suffer from
the smoke and heat ; and the sailors ,
one after another , lowered themselves
down and were received by the boats.
Philip desired Capt. Barentz to go
before him , but the captain refused.
He was too much choked with smoke
to say why , but no doubt that it would
have been something in praise o the
Vrow Katerina. Philip then climbed
out ; he was followed by the captain ,
and they were both received into one
of the boats.
The rope , which had hitherto held
the raft to the ship , was now cast off ,
and it was taken in by the boats ; and
in a short time the Vrow Katerina
was borne to leeward of them , and
Philip and Krantz now made arrange
ments for the better disposal of the
people. The sailors were almost all
put into boats , that they might relieve
one another in pulling ; the remainder
were placed on the raft , along with
the soldiers , the women and the chil
dren. Notwithstanding that the boats
were all as much loaded as they could
well bear , the numbers on the raft
were so great that it sunk nearly a
foot under the water when the swell
of the sea poured upon it ; but stanch
ions and ropes to support those on
board had been fixed , and the men re
mained at the sides , while the women
and children were crowded together in
As soon as these arrangements were
made the boats took the raft in tow ,
and , just as the dawn of day appeared , t
pulled in the direction of the land. t
The Vrow Katerina was by this time
one volume of flame ; she had drifted i
about half a mile to leeward , and
Capt. Barentz , who was watching as f
heat in the boat with Philip , ex I
claimed : "Well , there goes a lovely e
ship a ship that could do everything P
but speak. I'm sure that not a ship v
in the fleet would have made such a t
bonfire as she has. Does she not burn c
beautifully nobly ? My poor Vrow 1
Katerina ! perfect to the last ; we never e
snail see such a ship as you again. *
Well , I'm glad my father did not live
to see- this sight , for it would have
broken his heart , poor man. "

Invention of the Telephone.
In a recent lecture Prof. Alexander
Graham Bell is reported to have ex :
plained how he came to invent the tel-
ephons as follows : "My father invent
ed a symbol by which deaf mutes could
converse , and finally I invented an ap
paratus by which the vibrations of
speech could be seen , and it turned out
to be a telephone. It occurred to me to
: o make a machine that would enable
one to hear vibrations. I went to an ;
aurist , and he advised me to take the
human ear as my model. He supplied
me with a dead man's ear , and with
; his ear I experimented and upon ap
plying the apparatus 1 found the dead i
nan's ear wrote down the vibrations.
[ arrived at the conclusion that if I
could make iron vibrate on a dead
man's ear I could make an instrument
more delicate , which would cause those [
vibrations to be heard and understood.
thought if I placed a delicate piece
of steel over an electric magnet I could
get a vibration , and thus the telephone
was completed. The telephone arose
from my attempts to teach the deaf to
speak. It arose from my knowledge ,
not of electricity , but as a teacher of
the deaf. Had I been an electrician I
would not have attempted it.
Cnse Tried on Train.
A few years ago a county court action
tion was triad on a train. The judge
could not complete the case In the or
dinary way , owing to the absence of tl :
an important witness , who was ex '
pected to arrive by the train by which
his honor was due to leave. It was '
therefore decided that the judge and
advocates should travel with t'iiC wit s
ness , and try the case in the railway
carriage. This course was adopted ,
and the judge ultimately gave the ver

SOUTHERN UTE RESERVATION
Indian Lands In Colorado Opened to
The opening of the Southern Ute
Indian Reservation has at last been
accomplished. This vast area of arable
lands , fifteen by sixty miles In extent ,
lies on either side of the Denver & Rio
Grande railroad , South and East of
Durango. Umler the la.w , the Ute In
dians are entitled to 374 allotments ,
leaving about 636,000 acres subject to
entry under the desert homestead , tim
ber and townsite laws and the laws
governing the disposal of coal , min
eral , stone and timber lands , and as
the Indians may lease their allotments ,
intelligent while men will soon con
trol many of them at reasonable rent
als. The lands embrace both valley
and mesa , or uplands , but the supply
of water for irrigation is many times
the amount required , making the lands
sritable for grain and grasses , veg
etables , alfalfa and fruit trees. Clover
often yields three and one-half tons
per acre. The stock industry gives
promise of almost unlimited growth.
The lands allotted to the Indians ag
gregate 60,000 acres and are generally
in compact form. They may be leased
for three years for agricultural pur
poses and ten years for mining and
grazing lands. These leased lands are
exempt from taxation and free from
cost of water charges as the Jndlans
own the canals and ditches. The rental
is generally a small amount in cash
and from one-third to one-fourth of
the crops. The Indians may be hired
to work at low wages. This money and
the $50,000 which is to be paid to the
Indians annually by the government
"forever , " means plenty of the circu
lating medium in the locality at all
times. Homestead settlers are required
to pay not less than § 1.25 per acre ,
fifty cents of which , per acre , shall be
paid at the time of filing. This pro
vision shuts out the professional boom
er and invites men of thrift and en
ergy and industry. These will be the
last of the public domain entries in
Colorado. It is the last chance for
cheap , fertile and enviable homes. The
land offices are at Durango , Colo. , the
terminus of the Denver & Rio Grande
railroad. The traveler from the mid
dle West should take the Missouri Pa
cific System to Pueblo where he will be
taken by the Denver & Rio Grande
which is the only line reaching the
Ute Indian Reservation. It traverses
for CO miles the most desirable portions
tions of the lands subject to entry.

Blan Knya a Farm with Troceetls front
Two-Thiril of One Crop.
W. R. Milburn , John Holmes , 31. R.
Dagger , E. L. Stetson , of Buena Vista
county , Iowa , report as follows of the
Canadian North-West as to its suit
ability for farming , and the advan
tages it offers to. the agricultural im
migrant from , tlie United States :
"We came here solely to look up im
proved farms and , if suitable , to se
lect such as pleased us best. We have
not visited the homestead districts at
ali , though we believe them to be very
inviting. Our inquiries have been
confined solely to the district around
Hartney , Deloraine and towards the
Souris "River in Manitoba. Our im
pressions of all that region are in
every way satisfactory , and we have
decided -to go back to Iowa at once ,
and , having disposed of our several
interests there , to return to Manitoba
in the month of March next. and. effecting
fecting- our purchase of improved
farms , which we find we can do at
reasonable rates , immediately begin
farming. We are greatly pleased with
all that we have seen in that part of
Western Canada. The soil we find to
be more than equal to that of our own
country for wheat-growing , and the
oilier conditions of climate , schools ,
markets , etc. , are all that we could
"To show what an energetic man
can do we may mention that we found
one such at Hartney who had rented
a farm on shares , receiving two-thirds
fc of the returns as his share of the
crop. When he caine to sell his own
produce he found that his two-thirds ,
when converted into cash , was enough
to buy the farm he rented out and
out , which he accordingly did. and is
now Its owner. It is our intention to
induce as many of our friends as pos
sible , who are practical farmers , to re
move from Iowa to this country ,
where we believe there is a better
future for the industrious man than
