Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 1, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Pythons As pets. Harps Are costly. They were tots of schoolboys some not in their teens. Too Young to Wear swords 80 the midgets were armed with Dirk knives instead they were fighters though fsr isgut and Porter being in Battles at the age of twelve. Something More than a Hundred years ago the midshipman was indeed the a that he was popularly called tor he was but a mite of a lad usually receiving his appointment before he reached his teens. Admirals Farragut and Porter were midshipmen afloat and in pitched Battles at twelve years of age and Goldsborough was appointed when Only seven years old. Nowadays however the midshipman la quite a different person. He cannot enter the naval Academy under fifteen and is therefore when on a regular Cruls so ship after completing his four years academic course usually a Well developed Man physically mature and athletic and with a trained mind. He is far better equipped mentally than the lieutenants and Many of the captains of even seventy years ago. The. Old time middles were Mere schoolboys. All the warships of any size carried in their regular complements a schoolmaster whose duty it was to give the lads As Liberal an education As possible in the Odd periods Between strictly professional duties. This rating of schoolmaster was abolished in fact Only about Twenty years ago but after the establishment of the naval Academy in 1841, these officials devoted their energies to the Sailor apprentices Only the enlisted boys of the forecastle. Even these now obtain their education on Shore. There is a tradition that the three brass buttons the midshipman wears on the sleeve of his full dress coat during his four years at Annapolis originated a Century or More ago when their presence was needed to discourage the youngsters from brushing their noses with their sleeves. This is probably a base slander modern research indicating that the buttons Are relics of the Days when there was a cuff Flap on the sleeve. At All events the extreme youth of the used to be his most conspicuous characteristic. Instead of the full sized regulation officer s sword that he now carries he wore a Little straight bladed Dirk about a foot Long. He was to a Large extent a messenger for carrying orders about the ship but he also took charge of boats and commanded men despite his youth. He was frequently placed in charge of a prize captured in War. Taking her into port and not infrequently suppressing mutinies among the prisoners on Board. Farragut was a prize master at twelve and got his prize safely in. The title a a midshipman a is an ancient one. He is above the seamen and the Petty officers Forward and below the commissioned officers in the wardroom aft hence there was formerly a higher Grade called passed midshipman but this was abolished before the War Between the states. Then the Grade was restored but called midshipman the former midshipman being designated As a Cadet midshipman. In 1882 the title. Of the latter was changed to naval Cadet which it still remains and the midshipmen were merged with the ensigns. Accordingly the time honoured title of midshipman no longer exists officially in the United states Navy. While officially a naval Cadet that Young officer is still regarded and often referred to verbally As a midshipman for he is the same creature As of old As far As his duties go. But by the Side of prototype the twentieth Century Quot middy Quot is a savant. Trigonometry was about As High up in mathematics As the old timer Ever went. The twentieth Century lad goes far beyond. He goes through analytical geometry of three dimensions differential and integral calculus applied mechanics gunnery a Hundred years ago was Little More than loading aiming and filing at Short ranges it now involves metallurgy theory of he combustion of powder gases stress and Strain mechanical engineering manufacture and preservation of Complex explosives and other abstruse subjects. In All of which the midshipman of the present Day must be proficient. Midshipmen were conspicuous in All our Early wars notably those with the bar Liary states with the West Indian pirates and with the British la 1812. They were equally conspicuous during our conflicts with the Spanish and filipinos. Midshipmen naval cadets had charge of the extremely hazardous Pliket duty in the Santiago blockade close under the Spanish batteries and often under musketry ire from Shore. Cadet Powell ran his open launch right into the Harbor of Santiago after the me rime remained All night under the menacing guns of the inner batteries and. Steamed out again under their fire in the York press. The men liked them but they were not appreciated by his wife. An englishman who spent much time in Bengal tells in Blackwood a Magazine about a couple of pythons that were kept As pets. He says a one hears a Good Deal about the snakes but one sees very Little of them at any time and in cold weather nothing at All. Indeed the Only snakes i saw were two great pythons which n planter kept in one of his indigo vats for his private delectation. He loved to watch them and feed them and poke them with a stick and see their Flat vicious Heads drive at it with the Speed and Force of a steam Hammer. A this wife liked them less because one of them had once escaped from the . And wandered into her bedroom. It was daytime and she was resting from the heat and hearing it Advance breathing heavily she thought. It was her somewhat Fox terrier and told it to lie Down. As it seemed to be making for her bed instead she looked up to find that it was one of the pythons looking for n warm place in which to lie. Her screams brought her husband who annoyed by this escapade of a pet which his wife had never properly appreciated thoughtlessly seized it by the neck with the result that in a twinkling it had knotted itself around his Arm and nearly pulped it before his bearer could arrive and get it by the Tail. A two men it seems can Deal with a Python fairly effectively by grasping each an end of it thus preventing it from weaving itself into the Colls that crush. But no single Man is of much use for the reason that he cannot in the nature of tilings grasp and keep 1 taut an eighteen foot length of Writh i Long muscle. The plaster told me that As it was his Arm had turned Black and Blue All Over As if it had been squeezed in a heavy door and it was weeks before he could use it. But he still loved his and 80 Are their Faney cover and curious looking trunk. Every Harp should have a cover for its Protection from dust and dampness and these covers Are made sometimes of Canvas or Waterproof stuff but usually for Home use of Canton flannel of Felt or of Corduroy. These covers Are not simply Loose bags to cover the Harp but n each Case tailor made to flt the individual Harp. Such Harp covers Cost from $2.50 to $10 each. Costlier Harp covers Are made of silk of any desired color to harmonize with a room or its fittings and Cost perhaps $35 or $40. New harps of american make which Are said to be the Best in the world Cost from $500 to $2,000, while secondhand harps May be bought at $125 and upward. Most new harps Are shipped by the makers in wooden cases which Are made to flt the most costly harps Are now shipped in Harp trunks in each Case made for them. Harp owners who do not own a trunk May have one made to order so that the trunk shall fit the Harp. Harps weigh fifty to seventy five pounds each. A Harp trunk weighs about 150 pounds and costs $50. The Harp is placed within this trunk in its cover and the trunk is so padded within As to hold the Harp securely. There Are made Many Odd looking trunks for various special uses but a Harp trunk is about As curious looking a contraption As any of York Sun. Shrines in Japan. Blood and fir.

Lillian Nordica the Singer once upon returning from a concert tour decided to go straight to her Villa in France accompanied Only by her maid. She knew there were no servants there at the time but Felt no alarm. They arrived in the Early evening and enjoyed being Home again. At nearly Midnight they sat softly talking together with Only the Mellow Moonlight flooding the rooms when they heard a window off the South Balcony being raised and an instant later Steps were heard in the Hall. Almost paralysed with fear no one to help no weapon at hand there flashed Over the Prima Donna a realization of her Power of song. A it has moved thousands a she thought and with trembling notes she began to sing what had been uppermost in her thoughts before the Entrance of the intruder a Home Sweet the exquisite voice grew steadier and it rang out in its sweetest purest strains. Then followed a old folks at Home a hut her audience had gone. The maid saw a dark figure creep through the window and steal across the Lawn and out of the Gate. Some weeks later Nordica received the following letter dear Madame on the night of the i entered your Home to relieve you of All your diamonds jewels and Money but an Angel song rang out in the Sweet words of mothers songs and my hand and heart were arrested and i vowed never never again to do aught that would sorrow that sainted one.
