Judge Post related to the writer recently how near
General Manderson came at one time to being president.
He had been selected by a number of the national leaders
of the republican party for nomination for vice president
in 1900. Friends from all parts of the country urged
him to become a candidate, but despite all their impor
tunities, he declined to allow his name to be considered
by the convention. Had he not declined, thus making
way for Roosevelt, he would have succeeded to the pres

Another incident that occurred almost coincidental
with his death was the death at almost the same time,
three days later of two of General Manderson's friends,
both of whom were very prominent in their respective
spheres, and both of whom were close friends of his

Admiral Schley made a trip to the west a few years
ago, going as far as Salt Lake Cicy, as the guest of Sen
ator Manderson. He lived to see the time when his
contention in the controversy between himself and Ad
miral Sampson, following the battle in Santiago Bay has
been fully accepted by the American people.
That battle took place on July 3, 1898. The fol
lowing day, when tens of thousands of American people
were celebrating the nation's birthday at the Omaha Ex
position, General Manderson was addressing the crowd,
the news of the battle came in, thus giving him the op
portunity of telling of the triumph of the American fleet
under the command of his friend to that vast assemblage.

A Problem That Stumped Rousseau.
A curious little book is uu old, old
treatise on aeronautics by Jean
Jacques Rousseau, called "Le Xouveau
Dedale." Like Leonardo du Vinci and
Cyrano de Bergerac, Kousseau was
haunted by the dream of aerial navi
gation. We read: ".Men walk on the
earth, they sail ou the water and swim
tu it. Is not the air an element, like
the others? What business have the
birds to shut us out of their premises
while we are made welcome in those
of the fishes V" Itousseau took no stock
In any theories proiHiuuded by the
Darius (Jreens of his day. lie sifted
the matter for himself and thought it
Involved two problems. First to find
a body lighter than air, so that it
would rise. He imagined that sooner
or later such a body might present
Itself. There was no telling. But
what' stiiuiiMHl him was his second
problem how to make that obliging
body stop rising and how in creation
to make it come down. This was too
tough for Jean Jacques, and he wound
up his book by admitting it. For a
long time "Le Xouveau Pedale" re
mained unpublished, appearing only In
When a Ship Turns Turtle.
To "turn turtle" moans, in nautical
language, that a ship rolls too heavily,
fails to recover herself and after a
brief period on her beam ends turns
topsy turvy, so that her keel points
skyward. Then, of course, she sinks.
Frequently the compressed air Impris
oned in her hull blows her bottom out
as she goes down, or if she is a steam
er her boilers burst, with like results.
As a rule, ships turn turtle because
they are burdened with tnr much "top
hamper" or from lack of sufficient bal
last, or both causes combined. Barely
does it happen that there are any sur
vivors, but there is one notable excep
tion in the case of the battleship Cap
tain, which was lost after this fashion
In the bay of Biscay. In her case ex
actly three minutes elapsed from the
time she first turned turtle until she
finally sank, and forty of her crew of
500 men elanibcred up her side as she
rolled over and on to her keel. Of
these eighteen men were eventually
rescued and were able to describe later
on precisely what occurred. Pearson's.
Freed His f.TJnd In His Will.
Among oi:rious wills that of a cer
tain Dr. Dunlap, a Canadian, has often
been quoted. It probably contained
some of the most maliciously express
ed bequests on record. To one broth
er the doctor left his books so that he
might learn o read and acquire com
mon sense. To another brother he left
his big silver watch that the said
brother might know the hour at which
men ought to get up of a morning. To
his brother-in-law he left his best pipe
"in gratitude that he married my sis
ter Maggie, whom no man of taste
would ever have taken," and to the
eldest son of a friend he left a silver
tankard lest if he left it to tbe friend
himself, who was a rabid teetotaler,
the latter might melt it down to cast
temperance medals. To one of his sis
ters he left a silver drink cup "for rea
sons best known to herself;" to anoth
er the family Bible, so that she might
learn as much of Its spirit as she al
ready knew of its letter and become a
better Christian, and to bis eldest sis
ter a five acre field to console her for
being married to a man that she had
to henpeck. Chambers' Journal.

Genuine sardines are the young ef
the pilchaid. Their name comes from
the fact that they are most numerous
off the oast of Sardinia. They swim
in the spriiii shoals containing mil
lions fish sliap.-d shoals ten miles long
and a half wile wide. The sardines are
netted and taken at once to the shore.
There they are washed, scraped and
sprinkled with sr.lt. The salt is soon
removed, the heads and gills cut off
and there is another washing. Then,
on beds of greeu brush, the fish are
dried in the sun. Next they are boiled

paek"ers women always take them
now aud pack them in tbe tin boxes
we all know, filling up each box with

and according as the oil they are pack

The Young French Girl.
A young French girl enters the thea
ter with her father. She takes her
seat directly In front of the privileged
American girls "finishing" their edu

Is alight with anticipated pleasure,
with a soft vividness of Intelligence
that could never le cursed with the
word "brainy." Her hair Is bound
with a little old fashioned snood aud
tiny buckle; a strangely simple even
iug dress covers the exquisite ardor
of her slender body. Quickly four
faces, the faces of the overindulged,
the overprecoclous, the overathletic and
the overdressed, turn to study her.
There Is something to learn in this lit
tle French maid, whose eyes never
meet a man's, who Is never allowed to
walk alone on the street, whose un
conscions grace envelops her like a
veil, who is sheltered like a delicate
bird, yet trained to the utmost energy,

The story is told of the times of
Aretas Blood and the old Manchester
locomotive works that a student came
to Mr. Blood once and wanted to study
the business of locomotive building In
his vacation days. The student came
well recommended, and Mr. Blood,
who never had much use for these
"tech" people, sent him down to the
boiler shop and placed him In charge
of the old foreman. The old man took
the "tech" man around, and in the
course of the Inspection of the shop
they came across one boiler on the In
side of which was a man at work.
"now does that man get out?' in
quired the "tech" man.

Poetry and Pleasure.
Thewet writes under one restriction
only namely, tbe necessity of giving
immediate pleasure. Nor let this ne
cessity of producing immediate pleas
ure be considered as a degradation of
the poet's art. It is far otherwise. It
is an acknowledgment of tbe beauty
of the universe, an acknowledgment
tbe more sincere because not formal,
but indirect; it is a task light and easy
to him who looks at the world in the
spirit of love. Further, it Is a homage
