I There was no response, and the now

The story of the rhantom ship, or the
Flying Dutchman, who for his blasphemy
was condemned to try in vain to beat
around Cape Horn until the day of Judg
ment, has ils modern example in the fate
of the ship General Slglln, about ten years
aso. The General Siglln sailed from San
Francisco for Alaska, but never reached
its destination. Months later the sealing
schooner Arletls was cruising about 200
mlUs off the coast of British Columbia

na'ed the stranger, but got no answer.
Ittinnlng closer to the vessel, the crew of
the Arletis made, out the figure of a man
at the helm, grasping the whtel, his gaze
apparently fixed ahead. The man at the
wheel was hailed, but returned no answer.
' The story of the ship's fate can only be
conjectured, as none of her crew was
ever seen alive. It is supposed that the
vessrl was caught In a storm and began
to leak badly, and the crew deserted her,
the captain refusing to leave his vessel.
Won and Lost.
Not many years ago a valuable cup was
won in a bicycle race in Australia by a man
who was dead when he passed the winning
post. The race took place before a crowd
estimated at 10,000 persons. The betting
was lively and the contest close, and the
spectators wore worked up to a high pitch
of excitement. In the last lap Jame4

the finish those nearest to him saw him

his footing on-the pedals. Amid the frantic
cheers of the spectators he sped past the
goal, winning the race by a few yards or
more, when he pitched forward from Ills

dead, and doctors declared the spark ot
life left his body when he was seen to

K Battle After Death.
Of all the stories of the days of chivalry
none is more interesting than that how
the Cid Campeador, "God's scourge up;
the Moors." won a battle after death. T
('Id died at Valencia and before death di
rected that his body be taken to Castile.
Just about this time a mighty army lay
slLge to Valencia, but the story is best
told in the quaint language of the chron
icler. "Three days after the Cid had departed
this life King Bucar came Into the port
of Valencia and landed with all his power,
which was so great that there Is not a
man In the world who could give account
of the Moors he had brought. And there
came with him thirty and six kings and
one Moorish queen, who was a negress;
and she brought with her 200 horse
women, all negresses like herself, all hav
ing their hair shorn save for one tuft on
the top, and this was in token that they
came as if upon a pilgrimage and to ob
tain the remission of their sins; and they
were all armed In coats of mail and with
Turkish bows. King Bucar ordered his
tents pitched around about Valencia and
Abenalfarax, who wrote thla history in
Arabic, salth that there were full 15,000
tents. And he bade the Moorish negress,
with her archers, to take their station near
the city. And on the morrow they began
to attack the city, and they fought against
It three days strenuously; and the Moors
received great loss, for they came blindly
up to the walls and were slain there. And
the Christians defended themselves right
well, and every time that they went upon
the walls they sounded trumpets and tam
bours, and made great rejoicing, as the Cid
had 'commanded. This continued for eight
days or nine, till the companions of the Cid
had made ready everything for their de
parture, as he had commanded. And King
Bucar and his people thought that the Cid
dared not come out against them, and they
were the more encouraged, and began to
think of making bastlles and engines there
with to combat the city, for rertes they
weened that the Cid Ruydles dared not
come out against them, seeing that he
tarried so long.

gambax of fine sendal next the skin. And
he took two boards and fitted them to
the body, one to the breast and the other
to the shoulders. These were so hollowed
out and fitted that they met at the sides
and under the arms, and the hind one
came up to the poil and the other up to
he beard, and these boards were fastened
to the saddle so that the body could not
move. All this was done by the morning
of the twelfth day, and all that day the
people of the Cid were busy in making
ready their arms, and, with loading beasts
with all that they had, so that they left
nothing of any price In the whole city of
Valencia, save only the empty houses.
"When it was midnight they took the
body of the "id, fastened it to the saddle
as it was, and placed it upon his horse,
Bavleca, and'fastened the saddle welland

painted that no man who saw them would
have thought but that they were greaves

upon them; and they put on It a surcoat
of green sendal, having his arms blazoned
thereon, and a helmet of parchment, which
was so cunningly painted that everyone
might have believed It to be Iron, and his
shield was hung around his neck, and
they placed his sword Tlbona in his hand,
and they raised his arm and fastened it
up so subtilley that It was a marvel to see
how upright he held the sword. And the
Bishop Ion Hieronymo went on one side
of him and .the trusty Gil Dlar on the
other, and he led the horse, Bavleca, aa
the Cid had commanded him.

"And when all this had been made ready

toward Castile. Pero. Bermudea went first

silently and with such a measured pace that
It seemed as if there were only a score.
And by the time that they had all gone out
it was broad day.
"Now Alvar Fanez Minaya had set the
host in order, and while the Bishop Ion
Hleronymo and Gil Diaz led the way with
the body of the Cid and Dona Ximena and
the baggage, he fell upon the Moors. First
he attacked the tents of the Moorish queen,
the negress, who layest nearest the city;
and this onset was so sudden that they
killed full 150 Moors before they had time to
take arms or go to horse. But that Moor

Melancholy Plight of Denver Man
Too Anxious to
A quiet, bashful sort of a young fellow
was making a call on a Capitol Hill girl
one evening not to very long ago, when
her father came Into the parlor with his
watch in his hand. It was about 9:30
o'clock. At the moment the young man
was standing on a chair, straightening a
picture over the piano. The girl had asked
him to fix It. As he turned the old gen
tleman, a gruff, stout fellow, said:
"Young man, do you know what time
it Is?"
The bashful youth got off his chair nerv
"Yes sir," he replied. "I was Just go

lay and took his hat and coat. The girl's
father followed him. Aa the caller reached

"Yes. sir," was the youth's reply. "Good
And he left without waiting to put his
coat on.
After the door had closed the old gentle
man turned to the girl.
"What's the matter with that fellowV"
he asked. "My watch ran down this after

What Happened to n Fisherman
Who Introduced Novelty
lu Bait.
Mark Twain's famous Jumping frog story
concerns chiefly a practical Joke played on
the frog. But the present story, told by a
contributor to Recreation for April, narrat es
how a frog got the laugh on a fisherman,
who was using it as bait to catch bass.
"This happened last fall." says the story
teller, "when I was fishing with Fteve
Crump on a Ijtile bass stream near Ocean
pond, in Georgia. It was a little late In the
season, but Steve insisted that a good,
lively frog would prove a dainty morsel
that no bass even if he were frozen stiff
could resist, and he set out to find on.
He found a good one, put him on the hook,
and sat down on the mossy bank to await
results. The frog was active enough, but
the bass did not seem to appreciate frog's
legs that day. for not a strike did Steve
get. The sun was' warm, the air balmy and
Kteve became drowsy. I don't know what
dreams passed through his brain, but one
of them must have been that he had a
strike, for I saw him start suddenly and
give his rod a yank. Not feeling the ex
pected resistance on his line, he awoke.

guirtes-and then up in the air! Just then he
heard a triumphant croak above his head,
and looking up into the tree under which
he had been lying, he saw his frog sitting
comfortably on a limb!
"Pteve was pretty much surprised, and
thought at first that he had been 'hung up'
by that vicious yank of his rod. But I
had seen the whole performance and knew
Just what had happened. Soon after Kteve
fell asleep, I saw his frog stealthily swim
ashore and climb the nearest tree. Steve
had plenty of slack line out and Mr. Frog
managed to wind it several times around
the limb, and eat there resting himself
when Steve awoke. But Steve wouldn't
believe It and accused me of treachery. He
even wanted me to climb that tree and
'unwind' his frog'."
