Marat listened to her and at its conclusion a week they will go to the At that moment the young woman drew the knife and plunged it to the hilt in Marat's heart. The blow was not only struck with lightning like but was aimed with a bold and untrembling hand. Charlotte Corday was tried on the morning of July 17 and was beheaded on the evening of the same day. Her courage did not forsake and she as she was brought face to face with the instrument of that she had one man to save a hun- dred Her courage so im- pressed an unfortunate young German enthusiast named.

The whaling bark which ar- rived in this port a few days ngo from the Arctic brings a strange story of the narrow escape from death of six of her crew. The first George stated the circumstances to a Ckror.ifle as When the vessel was forty-six miles south of an object was pe.'ceivcd in the distance whose proportions and shape indicated it to be a monster sea lion.
