Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - December 1, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Old time middies they were tots of schoolboys some not in their teens. Too Young to Wear swords 80 the midgets War armed with Dirk though Farragut and Porter being in Battles at the ago of twelve. Something More than Hundred years ago the midshipman was indeed the midst Limite that lie was popularly called or he was but a mite of a lad usually receiving his appointment be fore 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 is quite a different person. He cannot enter the naval Academy under fifteen and is therefore when on a regular cruising 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 comple. Ments a schoolmaster whose duty it was to give the lads As Liberal an Edu cation 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 . 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 Dur Inglis 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 prob ably c base slander modern research indicating that the buttons Are relics of the Days when there was cuff Flap on the sleeve. At All events the extreme youth of the midst Limite used to lie his most conspicuous characteristic. Instead of the full sized regulation officer s sword that he now carries he wore a Little bar Algut bladed Dirk about a foot Long. He was to a Large extent a messenger for carrying orders about the ship but also took charge of boats and commanded men despite Bis 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 Oil Board. Farragut was a prize master at twelve and got his prize safely in. The title midshipman 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 be fore the War Between the states. Then the Grade was restored but called mid Shipman the former midshipman be ing designated As a Cadet midshipman. In isb2 the Tytla. 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 you Jig officer is still regarded and often referred to verbally As a midshipman for be is the same creature As of old As far As his duties go. But by the Side of his. Earlier prototype the twentieth Century middy is a savant. Trigonometry was about As High up in mathematics As the cd 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 Yei trs ago was Little More than loading aiming and filing at Short ranges t now involves metallurgy theory of the combustion of powder gases stress and Strain me of Apical 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 Barbary states with the Indian pirates and with the British la 1812. They were equally conspicuous during our conflicts with the Spanish and Fili pinos. Midshipmen naval cadets had charge of the extremely hazardous Pliket duty in the Santiago blockade close under the Spanish batteries and often under musketry fire from Shore. Cadet Rowel ran his open launch right into the Harbor of Santiago after the Merrimac. Remained All night under the menacing guns of the inner batteries and steamed out again under their fire in the morning.?new York press. Blood and fire.

An englishman who spent much time in Bengal Tel s in Blackwood s Maga Zine about a couple of pythons that were kept As pets. He says one hears a Good Deal about the snakes but one sees very Little of them at any time and in cold weather Noth ing at All. Indeed the Only snakes i saw were two great pythons which a 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. His 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 asthma tical Fox terrier and told it to he 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 a warm place in which to lie. Her screams brought her husband who. Annoyed by this Esca Pade 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. 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 coils that crush. But no single Man is of much use for the reason that he cannot in the nature of things grasp and keep taut an eighteen foot length of Writh ing muscle.

Then followed old folks at Home but 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 Mother s songs and my hand and heart were arrested and i vowed never never again to do aught that would sorrow that sainted one.
