Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - November 25, 1908, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Queer old nature. ,rv7hy is it asked u wondering of held Sweet simple Wittla thin that the foolish Trio puts on its clothes when the Sun shines in Tho Spring and then whoa chill autumn Cinoa and Tho winds of Winter blow Why does it sound out there nil Baro. In the Frost and sleet and Snow Wise nature has arranged it thus 1 told Tho Little Ono the rustling leaves can Only Livo beneath u smiling Sun tin Trio that in Leto Sammor Timo makes Shady Bowors for Yogi must have its rest therefore it stands asleep Tho Winter she sat in i Locc for awhile and gazed far into space. And lines of thought and trouble came to mar her childish face. And so at last Sho turned and said i m sorry for end tree and glad that nature was t left to fix things us for me a. E. Kiser in Cleveland Leader. Nobody claimed the paper a a Cabuko by general Washington that evidently frightened the owner. Major William Pierce left behind him a partial record of Tho debates in Philadelphia which supplement those of Madison Yates and King also Tho following anecdote when Tho convention first opened at Philadelphia there were a number of propositions brought Forward As great leading principles for Tho now govern ment to to established for Tho United states. A copy of those propositions was Given to each member with a injunction to keep everything a profound secret one morning by Accident Oue of the members dropped his copy of Tho propositions which Boug luckily picked up by general Mill in was presented to general Washington our president who put it in his pocket. After the do hates of the Day were Over and Tho ques tion for adjournment was called for Tho general arose from his seat and Previ Ous to his putting the question addressed Tho Couve Tiou in the following Man Ner gentlemen Lam sorry to find that some one member of this body has been so neglectful of the secrets of Tho convention As to drop in Tho statehouse a copy of their proceedings which by Accident was picked up and delivered to to this morning. I must entreat gentlemen to to Moro careful lost our transactions get into Tho newspapers and disturb the Public repose by premature speculations. I know not Whoso paper it is but there it is throwing it Down cd Tho table. Let him who owns it take it. At the same time he bowed picked up his hat and quilted the room with a dignity so severe that every person seemed alarmed. For my part i was extremely so for putting my hand in my pocket i missed my copy of the same paper but advancing up to the table my fears soon dissipated. I found it to be the handwriting of another per Sou. When i went to my lodgings at i a Indian Queen i found my copy in a coat pocket which i had pulled off that morning. It is something remarkable that no person Ever owned the paper. American historical review. A mild mannered pirate. An sex cleric who joined Tho fierce sea pm its of the Spanish main. The buccaneers of our coast is Tho title of a series of narrative sketches that Frank r. Stockton is writing for St. Nicholas. In speaking of John is que Meling who joined the buccaneers Aud became their historian or. Stock ton says it must have been a strange thing for a Man accustomed to pens and Ink to yardsticks and Scales to offer to enrol himself in a company of bloody big bearded pirates but a Man must eat and Bucca Neering was the Only profession open k our sex clerk. For some Rea son or other certainly not on account of his bravery and daring Esq emeling was very Well received by the pirates of Tortuga. Perhaps they liked him be cause he was a mild mannered Man and so different from themselves. As for Esq emeling himself he soon came to entertain the highest opinions of his pirate companions. He looked upon Tho inc careers who had distinguished themselves As great heroes and it must Haye been extremely Gratifying to those Savage Fellows to Tell esque Meling All the wonderful things they had Doue. Esq emeling might have earned a salary As a listener. It was not Long before his intense admiration of the buccaneers and their performances began to produce in him the feeling that these great exploits should net be lost to the world and so he set about writing their lives and adventures. He remained with the pirates for Sev eral years and during that time worked very industriously getting together material for his history. When he returned to his own country in 1072, he there completed a Book which he called the buccaneers of America or the True account of the most remarkable As saults committed of late years upon the coasts of the West indies by the buccaneers Etc. By John Esq emeling one of the buccaneers who was pres ent at those from this title in is probable that in the capacity of reporter our literary pirate accompanied his comrades on their various voyages Aud assaults and Al though he states he was present at Many of those tragedies he makes no refer ence to any deeds of valor or cruelty performed by himself which shows him to have been a wonderfully conscientious historian. There Are persons How Ever who doubt his impartiality be cause As he liked the French he Al ways gave the pirates of that nationality the credit for most of Tho bravery Dis played on their expeditious and All of Tho magnanimity and Courtesy if there happened to Beany while Tho Hurliness brutality and extraordinary wickedness wore All ascribed to Tho English. Appetito of Tho Florida Alligator. The Florida Alligator has an appetite that is hard to appease. A Fisherman weary with ill Luck pulled off his boots stretched himself on the River s Green Bank and went to sleep. A saurian in search of a dinner spied the sleeping Fisherman crawled up the Bank Swal Lowed him Aud retired in Good order. But after a Timo he remembered that the late Fisherman s boots were also re posing on the Bank. A dinner without dessert was to dinner at All so to re turned to taper off of Tho boots. But while he was in the net of swallowing them another Fisherman recently arrived shoe him dead. Probably the moral in this Story is some alligators never know when they have Atlanta Constitution. The successful. trouble with too Many peo ple in this world is that they Nover Stop to think. , but i notice that the most successful people Are tue ones that Don t have to Stop to thin Chicago news. Time it was retired. Yes that is a pretty Good bicycle joke. But. Well what it has made quite a number of Cen Tury the Purser s nerve shaved to keep his wits while the ship was sinking. It told the Story to the Galun it ship wrecked Tho matter of Nervo no went Tho Amateur photographer one stutter. It was a cozy room with antique hangings Aud furniture Aud Walls Hung with Haud Somo works of Art which could to ouly indistinctly seen by Tho Light of Tho Liick Crug fire of Tho Hearth. Tho Little party agreed with Tho Bountiful hostess that Tho room was just dark enough for a ghost Story. I Dou t know a ghost Story said our of Tho men but Tho dramatic Rescue of the Veo Udam s passengers by the St. Louis reminds to of my experience of Board Tho old Gallia when so was caught in a Hurricane in midwinter about 700 Nilos from knee Uptown. Tho Waves broke in our decks and flooded Tho cab ins Aud nobody thought for a Little while that any our on Board Tho Vossel would Ever see land again. Thero was no panic no Shonting no woo Piug Ami it scorned that All were perfectly pre pared to go though they looked far from Happy floundering about in Tho water dressed in such garments As Thoy could grasp when they were aroused from their sleep by Tho crash which sent Tous of water into Tho ship. It was about 7 o clock in the morning. The stewards had begun to Sot the table for breakfast and. As i recall Tho picture. I can Seo men and women most of them with Beavy wraps Over their night dresses standing of Tho table and danc ing a forced i Quot Between Tho guard rails and Tho dishes. At on Lendof Tho Cabin while others Wero silently praying stood a Young Fel Low with Noc Liing on but a suit of Blu Aud White pyjamas holding a snap camera in front of him. If you folks la hold still a minute he said Well have a picture of this if to Ever get out of it and for a my meet people forgot Tho terrible situation and i have always believed that one of Tho women adjusted her water soaked gown so that she might lock Well in the picture taken under Tho Shadow of Tho destroying an gel. Well to got through it All right although to came to Liverpool in a sadly battered condition and when they hoisted Tho trunks from Tho hold Tho water ran out of them As though each piece was a Sieve. We had service on Board the ship the sunday following our disaster and although two Days had passed since we thought to were Goue we seemed ouly then to appreciate fully what had happened. Men and women who had shown to sign of fear now moped in Corners with trembling lips unable to speak because of the Lump in their throats and Tho service of song was a Flat failure because no one could sing any More than the Young woman at the Organ could get a note out of that water soaked dripping piece of Furni Ture. We reached Liverpool too late at night to Leavo the ship Aud the men who had become better acquainted than they would have been on a less tempestuous voyage gathered in the Saloon and for the Hundredth time exchanged congratulations. " this was nothing said our Purser to the experience i once had Aud not so Long ago. To go Down with All hands must be hard enough but to be Tho Only Ono of a whole ship Ful to go and to so All Tho rest s pretty hard. That came near being my Case and i Don t want another similar experience. " i was an officer on the Ohio when she knocked a Hole in her Bottom and i helped Transfer the passengers and save what we could. When All had been sent to Tho ship which came to our re Lief we made ready for the last boat Load of which i was to to Oue. We had a lot of Money and valuables in the ship s Safe and i went below took a Tablecloth from the Cabin table. And into this dumped the contents of the various compartments of the Safe. I made a bag of it carried it on deck and when i came to where the boat should have been i found hat it had gone and 1, with the treasure was left in the rapidly sinking ship. Lean think of any number of situations which i would have preferred to mine just then. The wind being against me i could not make myself heard. 1 put up signals and no Ono would Ever guess what i did then. I wanted to keep my wits about me and Block All chances for nervous Ness so i did what requires a Man s full to shave Aud i doubt whether i Ever did a cleaner or a better Job. " by Tho Timo i had finished my companions must have missed me for i could a screw Loose in an in Giro May re sult in great loss to a railway or steam ship company. Should a Lawyor neglect a Little of evidence in a otherwise carefully elaborated Caso it May go against him. In fact half Tho bad Luck in life is directly attributable to Tho effects of hitches trifling though they May appear Pearson s weekly. Tho Lato count Kalnoky. Count Kalnoky had Tho reputation of being Tho Best dispatch writer in Europe. When stationed at Oruo and St. Petersburg his dispatches Wero models of clearness. The 6ame May to said of his state papers and speeches since. His Public addresses Wero comprehensive Cool Clear and singularly clog out. He frequently wrote for Tho emperor Clabo Rato sketches of Tho general political and diplomatic situation and it is said that each of these would Well Servo As a chapter of permanent history. To was indeed a thorough scholar master of the classics and of All important foreign Lau Guragos and a Wido Reader of the Best let erasure of the world. The late minister never married and so far As society was concerned was something of a Recluse. He was How Ever much admired by his subordinates. An austrian minister to a foreign coun try had made a horrible Blunder which caused no end of trouble finally Tho minister had to go Home to explain mat ters. After it was All straightened out and the minister was going Back to his Post without even a reprimand some one asked him what had been the mat ter. The minister explained it frankly admitting that to had been entirely at fault. I suppose then " said the other that the count gave you a tremendous wigging no not a How was that you Don t mean to say that to did t know it was All your fault of course said the minister he knew it was Ray fault but he waa too much of a gentleman to Tell me so.". Westminster Gazette. The foods we Eft Jon kind and what Thoy Aro sever ally Good for. Natoro supplies us with two complot foods milk Aud eggs which Coutair in Tho proper proportions All Tho necessary Elo Monts for the sustenance of our Bod ies. As those Aro Tho ouly Complete foods it is necessary in Tho Abse Uoo to Havo mixed foods Aud it is in Tho mix ing that mistakes occur because Tho fat found no muscle forming and other parts Aro taken in wrong proportions Homo in excess and others Tho reverse. Loft to his own Tasto primitive Man in variably selects Tho Host food. This instinct however is def Octavo at Tho pros ont Day. For children food Rich in Bone forming substances is necessary. Among muscle f Rmina foods Tho following Aro Tho Host an Jost common Oatmeal porridge with Rich milk and whole meal bread buttered Moat is a highly Couden Sod food of this class. To Mou of be noutary occupation a fro use of meat is injurious. For men Conga god at hard manual labor a generous Moat diet is admirable. Vegetables contain but Little nourish Mout but Aro useful As blood purifiers and also Supply bulk to Tho food which is necessary to give Tho consumer Satis faction. Milk should a Over be taken with Moat Boca Uso they Aro both Rich in Ono subs Taco. Tea should not to taken with Moat Oither because it Ronders Tho meat Tough and indigestible.

Sugar is Well worthy of notice Aud Tho child s love of it is a perfectly healthy instinct and should always to gratified in reason. Fruits Aro Good blood purifiers and should to considered As essentials rather than luxuries. Beef Tea contains scarcely any Nutriment whatever and is almost purely a Stimus laut. A dog fed on beef Tea starved to death Whilo another fed on refuse meat Throo. Tea injurious if taken in excess provides if taken in moderation a most refreshing drink. Many scientists recommend its use about two hours to Foro our principal meal and without food. Coffee is a stimulant unlike All others in fact that it is followed by no reaction. It stimulates Tho brain and is called an intellectual drink. Cocoa do serves to to classed As a food Pitts Burg dispatch. Old English Laws. Tho unlimited poor cars which a father exercised Over Iii of Spriner. In England loss than 100 years ago Tho husband had Power to choose his wife s associates to separate her from Hor relatives to restrain her religious and personal Freedom and if the need ,001111 be shown even to chastise her moderately As though she Wero a child. What constituted sufficient Causo for Corporal punishment was loft for Tho husband to Provo and Tho court to do Cido but so universally was Tho Mastery of a Man Over his wife s body Roc Oguiza de that a trial for wife beating was Al most unheard of. Under these old Laws of Edgland Tho father had Power to dispose of his off Spring by deed or legacy until Thoy Wero 21 years of age and Tho testamentary guardian s right Over Tho children superseded that of the Mother who had absolutely no Legal control Over them and was entitled to nothing from them save their reverence Aud respect. Sho had no right even to their services except in Tho Caso of the Mother of an illegitimate child who was entitled to its control and custody. Upon marriage Tho husband became entitled to Tho wife s goods and chattels to Tho rentals and profits of her lauds to her earnings and to Tho custody of her Persou. In re turn to was bound Only to Supply her with shelter food clothing Aud Modi Cine which to could do out of her per Sonal earnings or out of Tho profits of her properties should Sho to an heiress. If a father did intestate his personal belongings Wero divided equally be tween his sous Aud daughters but in the Caso of real property a Sou though Hobo younger Thau All his Sisters was Tho Solo heir. In England less than a Century ago it was not unusual for a Man to sell his wife into servitude. Tho Terra i u knew him. Who the Lato major Moses p. Haudy lived in Washington to was frequently attending dinners at Chamborlin s. At every dinner at All out of Tho Ordinary it was Chamberlin s habit to pass around Tho table Alivo the Terrapin that it was assumed Tho guests Wero to eat later. One night As major Handy told Tho Story when the live Terrapin were brought in As usual he noticed Asho thought Ono of Tho terrapins wagging his head at him. At Tho not banquet Tho Samo thing happened again and at Tho next Ono of Tho Terrapin detached himself from Tho rest and crawling across Tho table to Tho major s plate Rose on his Hind legs and resting his fore legs against a convenient Tumbler he bowed three times solemnly but courteously to the astonished and Awo struck guest. Upon investigation it was discovered that Tho Terrapin had Scon the major so frequently at Chamberlin s Festal Board that he to cognized him As an old Friend and politely addressed Bim As such. Or. Chamberlin is said to Havo resented this Story As a reflection on Tho freshness of his Terrapin Kansas City journal. Two capital stories. I pass into Arlington Street where Sheridan sickened with his losses at play kicked a Man Over who protested that he was Only tying his shoe. you said Sheridan. You Aro always tying your shoo Horace Walpole Calls it the ministerial Street where Pul Teney and lady Mary Montagu lived and on both sides of which sir Bobert Walpole had a House where in my youth Tho Duke of Hamiltou with a Beauty like a gods was ofte to be seen. Turning into Piccadilly there is the Chariot of lady Peel who never missed her daily drive with her daughter in Tho Park and the yellow Chariot of the Duchess of Cleveland with her two tall footmen in breeches and silk stockings and their Long canes. She was a lady with a philosophic turn of mind for when her husband died she asked a relative Down to the funeral and told him to bring his gun adding to Are old we must die but the pheasants must be Algernon nest in nineteenth Century.
