And as his springing steps advance,

Heave in wild breaths the battle

Like shoots of flame on midnight's

And cowering foes shall shrink be

That lovely messenger of death.
Flag of the seas! on ocean wave,
Thy star shall glitter o'er the brave;
When death careering on the gale,
Sweeps darkly round the bellied sail.
And frightened waves rush wildly
Before the broadsides' reeling rack,
Each dying wanderer of the sea
Shall look at once to heaven and thee.

A OlrTs Talk Abaat Grant.
The following summer I went to An
napolis to see my brother receive his
diploma from the hands of the Presi
dent, with the rest of the graduating
midshipmen. It was a glorious Jifne
day, and I was fortunate in having a
friendly recognition from Mr. Grant,
as I stood near him under the trees
during the morning exercises. But bet
ter was to come. In the afternoon a
race was to be rowed, and my brother
was in one of the crews. With other
ladies, I was in Commodore Skerrett's
launch looking on, and troubled by
the remarks of many that the river
was far too rough for rowing. But the
President and Cabinet could not stay
for another day; the race must be
rowed at all hazards. The crews start
ed, and proud was Ito see my broth
er's boat now flying like a bird over
the tops of the rollers, now lost in the
hollows between. But suddenly a cry
.of dismay went from one spectator
to another: "She's swamped!" "No
wonder!" "Perfect folly!" and my
strained gaze found but one shell on
the course, and that not Tom's!
"Pull!" cried kind Commodore Sker
rett, and we fairly flew over the
water toward the goal and the barge
containing Admiral Porter and the
President's party. More than that, he
let me stand, for I was too short to
see otherwise, and the ladies sitting on
each side of me held my hands to keep
me steady. No one spoke. My eyes
searched in vain for a red head among
the dark ones of the capsized crew.
Just as my heart contracted with the
fear that he must have sunk, a quiet
penetrating voice came across from
the barge: "He's all right, Miss N.!"
It was Grant's, and there behind him
in the boat was my dripping, laughing
brother, kissing his hand to me.
Oaa Gam far Hlaassir.
One of the quaintest characters in
the old American navy was Admiral
Joseph Fyffe, as bluff and fearless an
old sea dog as ever stood upon the
bridge in time of danger. There is
hardly an officer or man in the service
to this day but can repeat some of the
witty and original sayings and doings
of "Joe" Fyffe. Besides being as good
a seaman as ever trod wooden ships
of war, the admiral had a tongue
which was about as impressive to for
eigners as the guns which peered from
the portholes of his vessel. "Joe Fyffe's
ideas of diplomacy were based on the
primary principle that there was to be
no backing down or "beating about
the bush" under any circumstances,
and that whatever mistakes Americans
happened to make should be "stood
by," just as if they had been Inten
tional and part and parcel of elabo
rate plans. This phase of "Joe" Fyffe's
character was strikingly illustrated
about 10 years ago, when Admiral
Fyffe's flagship sailed Into the harbor
of Portsmouth. England. According to
international etiquette, the saluting
guns were unlimbered on board the
visiting vessel for the usual salute
of 21 guns, which are given in honor
of the nation in whose harbor a for
eign warship enters. By some mis
take of the gunner on this occasion
Admiral Fyffe's flagship thundered
out 22 guns. A return salute of 21
guns was fired from shore, and when
the commandant of the navy yard
ashore made his official visit to the
American flagship he took occasion to
mention the fact that 22 guns had
been fired from the flagship. "I say,
admiral." said the Englishman, polite
ly, "I noticed that you gave us full
measure of guns in your salute today.
What was the extra gun for?" "Well,
sir," returned the admiral, without
turning a hair, "I fired 21 guns for
Queen Victoria and one for 'Joe Fyffe

Gen. Daniel Sickels tells a story il
lustrating the tenderness of President
Lincoln's heart as well as his faith in
Providence and his, beautiful optim
ism. After Sickles Had been wounded
at Gettysburg he was removed to
Washington, and the President called
on him at the hospital. When the gen
eral described the battle and the awful
slaughter, "Lincoln wept like a child."
"While the two armies were converg
ing," said Lincoln, "I went into my
room and prayed as I never prayed
before. I told God that if we were to
win the battle He must do it, for I
had done all that I could. I went
from my room with a great load lifted
from my shoulders, and from that mo
ment I never had a doubt as to the re
sult We shall head good news from
Grant who has been pounding away
at Vicksburg for so many months. I
am in a prophetic mood today, Sickles,
and I say that you will get well."
"The doctors do not say so."
"I don't care. Sickles; you will get
well," persisted the President
And that afternoon, Gen. Sickles
goes on to say, a telegram was re
ceived from Gen. Grant, announcing
the fall of Vicksburg. His own recov
ery soon followed.
Hew Fortreis Bfoaroa Wai Ballt.
The manner of constructing the fort
at Old Point Comfort is interesting
and throws some light on customs and
practices then in vogue. The work
was almost wholly done by slaves,
who were brought to the place by their
masters and leased to the engineers in
charge. The slave-owner received 50
cents a day for each slave, and the
government furnished each "laborer,"
as the slave was called, with two suits
of working clothes, a pair or two of
shoes, rations, quarters and occasion
ally a little tobacco. The "laborers"
worked with very little clothes and
generally without shoes. Tfiey lived
in barracks and were subject to a kind
of military discipline. The owners
were regular in coming in to collect
the hire for their slaves, from which
we may infer that the "constituents"
of those days knew how to appreciate
a good thing to a degree worthy of the
present generation. Leslie's Monthly.
A Naval Medal Selected.
Secretary Long has definitely select
ed a design for the medal to commem
orate the naval campaign against
Spain in the West Indies. The obverse
of the medal is surrounded by a
wreath of oak leaves, in the center of
which is a profile of Admiral Sampson
and the inscription "United States
Campaign in the West Indies, 1898,"
and on the other side, "William Thom
as Sampson, Commander-in-Chief."
On the reverse is a representation of
the "Men Behind the Guns." In the
distance are seen the outlines of a war
vessel. At the bottom is the inscrip
tion, "Santiago. July 3, 1898, John
Smith, U. S. S. Texas," the name of
the recipient and of the vessel upon
each medal being different Admiral
Sampson's picture was chosen because
he was commander-in-chief of the
fleet, as Dewey's was placed on the
Soldiers and tbe Caatesa.
The attitude of the W. C. T. U. with
respect to the army canteen and the
surmises stated as facts in support of
that attitude are responsible for a
storm of protests from officers and en
listed men. As a matter of truth, of
ficers and men are unanimously in
favor of the restoration of the can
teen the former because the men are
more easily controlled and because
there are few breaches of discipline
under the canteen system, and the lat
ter because they miss from their mess
tables the luxuries the canteen system
secured to them and because under the
new system they find they are spend
ing twice as much in barrooms outside
of the posts as they formerly were ac
customed to spend in the canteens.

Captain's Visit to Saltan.
Captain Smiley, of the Fifteenth
regiment, U. S. A., returned recently
from the Philippines, where he was
on the staff of General J. C. Bates, was
telling of his visit to the sultan of the
Sulus at his island capital. "The sul

a skull cap, on the front of which was
set an enormous diamond. He is a
little man, with a no more striking
personality than is given him by his
costume. When standing he hardly
comes above the elbow of the average
American." Captain Smiley has now
been transferred to Madison barracks,

Mr. A. E. Randle of Congress
Heights, visited the District commis

a cannon ball cut off his left arm and
at the same time blew off the head of
his servant, who was kneeling by his
side. A Union officer in the same bat
tle, who shall be nameless, lost his
right arm during the same siege. In
after years the two officers became
close friends. As one of them lost the
right arm and the other the left one,
they send each other the odd glove
every time either purchases a pair of
gloves." Washington Post

The following is told of General
Lawton: "When Lawton started out
to get anything, he hated to stop until
it was in his grasp. He was tireless

why other men couldn't keep up with

that it was necessary to stop and cook
meals for the men. 'Yes, he would say.

The plnm orchards of the past still
exist in the memories of our middle
aged and old people. They are Mostly
remembered 'as hanging: full of purple
and white and black fruit, brightened
by the dews of morning. Those were
the days of big dreams concerning
plums. The curcullo was unknown
and the black-knot had not begun to
be a burden. In every part of the east
the orchards were set out and flour
ished. Every home had its group of
trees and the children played under
the branches and culled the pretty
fruit as they did the flowers. People
looked forward to the time when
plums would be in surprising abund
ance in every locality. But the dream
was not to come true. From Europe
came a pest with which Americans
did not know how to grapple. It
swept like a destroyer oyer the coun
try. Little by little the beautiful
branches of the plum trees became
filled with unsightly black knots and
ceased to bear fruit Tree after tree
was cut down but the pest merely re
appeared on other trees. No variety
was potent against it and every de
fense failed. No man knew the na
ture of the enemy. So the plum or
chards disappeared, and men in despair
ceased even to try to grow them. From
that point the scientists took up the
work. Little by little the nature of
black-knot was found out and reme
dies discovered. Today the fruit
grower knows how to combat the most
destructive of all these diseases and
the plum orchards are reappearing. Let
us hope that the time is not far dis
tant when every home will have its
little giove of plum bearing trees.
Every' farmstead will be made more
beautiful and more pleasing to its in
habitants if a plum orchard exists on
it Today the culture of plums has
been reduced to such a science that the
novice and the amateur can succeed
with them. Within the last ten years
many plums have been brought in
from foreign countries, and more va
rieties have been discovered growing
wild in our own woods. These have
been cultivated and developed till we
have a very large list from which to
weeds his greatest obstacle to success.
The experienced farmer or fruit grow
er seldom mentions them. He knows
that they are easily kept down by the
cultural methods that the crops should
have whether there be weeds or not
When fruit culture Is carried on on
a small scale one of the best means of
keeping down weeds is the mulch.
This mulch may be of any kind of
verdure grass or straw or weeds. The
writer has found it a very serviceable
thing in the culture of tomatoes.
There Is a good deal of grass and
weeds mown that is not suitable for
hay and this is placed between the
rows of tomatoes. It ensures three
things: The keeping down of the
weeds, the conservation of moisture
and the protection of the fruit from
dirt There is a fourth object that is
perhaps attained and that is the in
crease of nitrogen in the surface soil
due to proper shading and moisture
under the mulch.
Boot-Kllllaz of Fralt Tress.
At the last meeting of the Southern
Minnesota Horticultural Society Clar
ence Wedge of Albert Lea, dealt with
this most important subject to north
western horticulturists. "In that por
tion of our country west of Lake Mich
igan and north of Missouri there is no
menace more constantly hanging over
the fruit interests of the country than
that of root killing." Last winter was
a severe and emphatic lesson in this
line, but on account of snow protec
tion when the thermometer was the
lowest we did not fare as badly as our
Wisconsin and South Iowa brethren.
It seemed to matter little last winter
what the condition of the soil happen
ed to be, if the snow were blown off
and the earth fully exposed. The moist
low places suffered fully as much as
the dry exposed hills.
The strongest defense we can make
is by the use of soil covering of some
kind. A very thorough mulch should
bo maintained in orchards at all sea
sons of the year, and to hold this in
place and also to keep the snow, Mr.
Wedge favors the growing of raspber
ries along the orchard rows. If Prof.
Hanson's recently recommended trial
of the little Siberian bush crab as a
stock apple proves all that may be
hoped for it, we may not always be at
the mercy cf a winter drouth as in our
nurseries we surely are very largely
at the present time.
Root killing among small fruits is a
very hard matter to provide against,
and is a very serious cause of loss to
berry growers. Here a cover crop is
out of the question and a mulch would
be too expensive and frequently of no
avail. A cheap and effective system
of irrigation is about the only remedy.
In the roots of the wild plum we for
tunately have an iron-clad stock upon
which to graft and about the only
protection needed is a dust Manket in
summer and a well-loosened soil for
winter. If, however, the plum 13
grafted on the peach or some foreign
stock it will need even more careful
winter cover than the apple.
Fertility aad Ejrg-ProdactioB.
Experiments have been made at the
Ontario station in the production and
fertility of eggs and Prof. Jarvis, who
was in charge of the work, makes the
following report concerning it. Ten
laying hens were separated from the
male. The eggs .aid each day were
placed in an incubator and their fer
tility tested. Of the eggs laid during
the first four days after the male was
removed 70 per cent were fertile, of
those laid on the fifth day, 61 per cent,
on the sixth, 60 per cent, on the sev
enth, 49 per cent, on the eighth, 12
per cent, on the ninth, 2 per cent and
on the tenth all were infertile.
A test was made with six laying hens
to determine the time which elapsed
before eggs become fertile after a male
is introduced. On the third day 30
per cent of the eggs were found to be
fertile, on the fourth, 42 per cent on
the fifth, 50 per cent, on the sixth, 60
per cent, on the seventh, 70 per cent,
on the eighth, 63 per cent,, on the
ninth, 70 per cent, on the tenth, 74
per cent The influence of the male
on the total number of eggs produced
was tested with two lots. Lot one
consisted of five pullets, five hens and
one cock; lot two of five hens and five
pullets of the same varieties as lot one.
The test began January 1 and lasted
until September 1. Both pens were
fed and cared for in tbe same way.
Lot one laid 959 eggs and lot two 972
eggs. It can be seen that there was
but very little difference In the num
ber of eggs laid by the two pens.
