Kiser in Cleveland Leader. Nobody claimed the paper the Purser a nerve shaved to keep his wits while the ship was sinking. A rebuke by Olih my Wash Lizton that Kohl Entov filch tuned the of Ruhr. Major William Pierce left behind him a partial recon of Tho debates in Philadelphia which supplement those of Madison Yates Aud King also the following anecdote when Tho Cove Tiou first i Mcnod at Philadelphia there were a number of propositions brought Forward us great leading Primo Isles for Tho new government to he established for Tho United states. A copy of these propositions was Given to each member with a juju us Fiou to keep everything a profound secret. One to Ruiu by Accident one of the members dropped his copy of the propositions which being luckily picked up by general Miil Liu was presented to general Washington our president who put it in his pocket. After the debates of the Day were Over and the question for adjournment was called for the general arose from his seat Aud previous to his put thug the question addressed Tho Couve Tiou in the following manner Quot gentlemen i am sorry to Iid that some Cue member of this body has been so neglectful of the secrets of the Couve Tiou As to drop in the state Lions a copy of their proceedings which by act a do it was picked up and delivered to me this morning. I must entreat gentlemen to be More careful lest our transactions got into the newspapers Aud disturb the Public repose by premature speculations. I know Uoc whose paper it is hut there it is throwing it Down on the table. Let him who owns it take at the same time he bowed picked up his hat and quilted the room with a dig it 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 Rev fears soon dissipated. I found it to be the handwriting of a other person. When i went to my lodgings at a he Indian Queen i found my copy in a coat pocket which i had pulled off that morning. It is something Reinar Pablo that no person Ever owned the american historical review. A mild mannered pirate. An sex clerk who joined Tho fierce sen Kovers of the Spanish main. A Tho buccaneers of our coast Quot is the title of a series of narrative sketches that Frank Stockton is writing for st. Nicholas. In speaking of John is que emeling who joined Tho buccaneers nud became their historian or. Stockton says it must have been a strange thing for a Man accustomed to pens and Ink to yardsticks Aud 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 w our sex clerk. For some reason or other certainly not on account of Bis bravery Aud daring Esq emeling was very Well received by the pirates of Tortuga. Perhaps they liked him be Canso to was a mild mannered Man and so different from themselves. As for Esq emeling himself be soon came to entertain the highest opinions of his pirate companions. He looked upon Tho buccaneers who had distinguished themselves As great heroes and it must have been extremely Gratifying to those Savage Fellows to Tell Esq emeling All the wonderful things they bad done. Esq emeling might have earned a salary As a listener. It was not Long before his intense admiration of t he buccaneers and their performances began to produce in him the feeling that these great exploits should not be lost to the world and so he set about writing their lives Aud adventures. He remained with Tho pirates for several years and during that time worked very industriously getting together material for his history. When be returned to his own country in 1672, he there completed a Book which he called a the buccaneers of America or. The True account of the most remarkable assaults committed of late years upon Tho coasts of the West indies by the buccaneers Etc. John Esq emeling one of the buccaneers who was present at those tragedies. A from this title it is probable that in the capacity of reporter our literary pirate accompanied his comrades on their various voyages and assaults and although he states he was present at Many of a those tragedies to makes no reference to any deeds of valor or cruelty performed by himself which shows him to have been a wonderfully conscientious historian. There Are persons How Over who doubt Bis impartiality be Canso Asho liked the French be always gave Tho pirates of that nationality the credit for most of Tho bravery displayed on their expeditions Aud All of Tho magnanimity Aud Courtesy if Thero happened to to any while Tho Hurliness brutality and extraordinary wickedness wore All ascribed to Tho English. Appetite of Tyllo Flur Lulu aug Fintor. The Florida Alligator has an appetite that is Bard to up Peaso. A Fisherman weary with ill Luck pulled off his boots stretched himself on the River a Green Bank Aud went to sleep. A saurian in search of a dinner spied the sleeping Fis Beroun crawled up the Bank swallowed him Aud retired in Good order. But after a Timo he remembered that the late Fisherman s boots were also reposing on the Bank. A dinner without dessert was no dinner at All so he returned to taper off on Tho boots. But while he was in the net of swallowing them another Fisherman recently arrived shot him dead. Probably the moral in this Story is a some alligators never know when they have a a Tlusta Constitution. Lie told the Story to attic Clallia t shipwrecked Tho mutter of nerve to went the anon tour hot of rep Hor one better. It was a copy room with antique hanging nud in Ruitaro nud Wulls Hung with handsome works of Art which would to Only indistinctly seen by Tho Light of Tho bickering Firo on Tho Hoarth. Tho Little party agreed with Tho boat if is 1 hostess that Tho room was just dark enough for a ghost Story. A i done to know a ghost 6tory, Quot said one of Trio men Quot but to dry Montio Rescue of the veer Diu s passengers by the st.

Thero was 110 Patio no shouting no weeping Aud it scorned Flint All were perfectly prepared to go though they looked far from Happy flounder aug about in to water dressed in such garments As they could grasp won they were aroused from their sleep by Tho crash which sent tons of water into Tho ship. It was about 7 of clock in to morning. The stewards had begun to Sot the Tuble for breakfast Aud. As i recall Tho picture i i can Seo men nud Tomou most of them with heavy wraps Over to boil night dresses standing on Tho to nolo and dancing n forced Lui Unet Botwood Tho guard rails and Tho dishes.

A if you folks la bold still a minute a be said a Well have a picture of this if to Over get out of and for a moment people forgot the terrible situation and i live always believed that one of to women adjusted her water soaked gown so that so might lock Well in the picture taken under Tho Shadow of Tho destroying Angel a Well we got through it All right although we came to Liverpool in a sadly battered could Tiou Aud when they hoisted the trunks from the hold Tho water Rau out of them As though each piece was a Sieve. To bad service on Board the ship Tho sunday following our disaster Aud although two Days had passed Sinco to thought to were gone we seemed Only then to appreciate fully what had happened. Meu Aud women who had shown no sign of fear now moped in Corners with trembling lips urn ble 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 Wou Iau at Tho Organ could get n note out of that water soaked dripping piece of furniture. A we reached Liverpool too late at night to Leavo Tho ship nud the men who bad become better acquainted than they would have been on a loss tempestuous voyage gathered in the Saloon trend for the Quot Hundredth time exchanged congratulations. Quot a Thiwa nothing a said on parser a to Tho experience i once bad and not so Long ago. To go Down with All bands must be hard enough but to be to Only Ono of a whole ship Ful to go and to Seo All Tho rest saved that s pretty hard. That came near being my Case and i Don t want another similar experience. A a �?~1 was an officer on the Ohio when she knocked a Hole in her Bottom and i helped Transfer the passengers Aud save what we could. When All had been sent to Tho ship which came to our Relief we made ready for the last Boatload of which i was to be one. We had a lot of Money Aud valuables in the ship s Safe and i went below took a Tablecloth from the Cabin table Aud into this dumped to contents of the various compartments of Tho Safe. I made a bag of it carried it on deck and when i came to where the boat should have Boon i found that it Bud gone and i with to treasure was left in the rapidly sinking ship. I can think of any number of situations which 1 would have preferred to mine just then. The wind being against me i could not make myself Beard. 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 a sauces for nervousness so i did what requires a Many a full attention a began to shave Aud i doubt whether i Ever did a cleaner or a better Job. A a a by Tho Ticino i had finished my companions must have missed me for i could orc them returning and when they came alongside there were not Many inches to step Down from the sinking big boat to to Little thing that took us away. I Tell yen this Story to show How necessary it is to have nerve on Board ship a a a Maud did to Tell it for a True Story a asked the hostess.

A scotch gone zealously by Scotchman. Tho Gaius of Curling has secured a firn Placo among Tho Winter sports in nil parts of to country Wboro there is heavy ice and where there Are Scotchman to teach Tho Guizio to their american neighbors. Thero Are about 50 curl aug clubs in to United states and Tho grand National Curling club of America has a membership of Many hundreds in nil parts of Tho North and Northwest but still Tho game Isopo Kotof us Scotland Suin Gunio. A Tho game is always played on Ico covered lakes or Rivers of copt in England Wboro it is frequently pm nod us Dur Glass roofs by Mou Whoso White waistcoats Straw hats Floral decorations and general Lack of scotch Stylo Canso Tho real curlers to regard them with scorn. Tho curlers who Are members of Tho now y Ork clubs Bavo their contests on vim Cortlandt Lako and there is probably no class of sportsmen who go about a game so seriously As boy. Tho object of Tho game is to Plant Tho on lug Stout which has a Teakettle shape Aud weighs from 99 to 44 pounds near the Quot too Quot or Center of a Circle at a distauro of 40 Yards and to guard it there. Next to Tho Stone Tho Broom plays Tho most important part in Tho Gurno of on lug because in Tho bands of a sweeper who is anxious to Seo Tho Stout nov Auto to to Circle where it will count it is wild of dexterously so that Overy particle of show or Ico May to removed from the Stouer a course.

Its direct relation to Tho scale of labor s wage a. To Price of labor in to same industries differs in different localities or markets not because the skill of labourers so greatly differs or because there is great diversity in the Supply Aud do Maud for labourers but because Tho Cost of production the Cost of living greatly differs in different localities. Thus in new York City carpenters masons printers Aud other mechanics get for the Sarno work 50 Aud sometimes 100 per cent More than in some other localities. While the Cost of living is sometimes affected by the difference in prices of particular articles of consumption it is usually determined largely by to differ Cuco in Tho social Stylo of living. Tho greater the variety of Tho things consumed and comforts enjoyed by to labourers the higher is their Standard of living Aud Tho greater their expenses or Cost of living. Now it is universally True in All countries Aud localities that in proportion As this Standard of living or social expense of the labourer s family rises among any class of labourers wages Rise hence they Aro always highest in Largo cities Aud lowest in re into country districts. It May be Laid Down then As u general principle that wages for similar labor in any give Market arc governed by the local Standard of living of Tho labourers. Consequently All efforts to improve the could Tiou of Tho Labouring class to be efficacious must be directed toward Sucro Hsiug to influences which raise the Standard of living among Tho Labouring class. In no other Way can a permanent increase of wages to secured and it May be added that no scheme for social Reform which Doos not tend to promote this cud can to of any real Benefit to the wage Magazine. _ Biblo text pre Soots.

Tho trams failed to put in no appearance at Tho usual stopping places at Trio appointed times and throughout Trio length of the Lucs waiting Posson Gors travelled to their destinations by Tobor conveyances.

It was his a Casugo authorizing them to sell and As Tho Stock was at such a Low figure they were anxious to consult him before moving in to matter. Tho unfortunate investor was Dum founded at Trio lost Opportunity which on inquiry proved to have resulted from a Accident to the Telegraph boy. To had been knocked Down Aud stunned Eva cab mid conveyed Toa Hospital. Ilis message had been Siut out again As soon As possible but Tho delay slight As it was had lost Ono Man a huge Fortune. Trio Man who suffers mostly by trifling hitches is the inventor.

Tho idea was in every Way perfect and in conjunction his son to bad constructed models nud partially drawn up Patent specifications. To the latter however he had not confided a certain Small mechanical detail a the very our which had Cost him so much labor to work out successfully his idea being that his son should Endeavor to overcome Tho difficulty himself till Tho Patent was entered when to was to learn Tho secret of Tho mechanism. The very Day before to were completed Tho father dropped dead of heart disease through excitement and when later his son came to examine the drawings to found the detail he wished to know had not been included in spite of endless labor Aud consultation with brother engineers to difficulty Trilling As it seemed was never overcome Aud by this Little hitch in Tho apparatus it is estimated that he lost very nearly �750,000.
