Logansport Weekly Journal (Newspaper) - August 25, 1883, Logansport, Indiana
The weekly journal. Vol. 35.logansport. Indiana saturday August 25, 1883.-12 pages. No. 37.european c re Respondence. There is Only one to form an adequate Iden of London and that i to take the thames it London Bridge and go Down to Tivey pronounce it As if it was come posed of two Ella bless Graves end and thus its meaning As an Index of the size of London becomes apparent then turn around and go up the River to Mortlake. Tie places Are about fort Miles apart and fully three fourths of this dist uce is within London for ten Miles on each Side of the River there Are nothing but ship docks and warehouses. These docks Are often a mile or two Long. Each nation has a Section to itself. The Calcutta ships alone would make a i eat water City. The Mediterranean Trade another. The China another and so on to the end of the chapter of course All the big ships Are Belov the Bridges. About ten Miles Belov the Tower lies the Nian of a r. Vav a sprite. One of the of l t wooden ships the biggest Lingin the Way of naval Arcini texture that i have Ever seen. Its vast size so vast to seem at a Little distance like a Jna Ine monster. The Host fatal of Greenwich ii is the ugliest of All Public buildings in England while the arsenals at Woolwich Are Only a succession of great piles of thick Stone and mortar. At Woolwich the thames widens to tiie size of the mis is Ippi at St. Louis and the Waves top the boats As in mid Ocean. Up t Moritake it contracts until it is no larger than eel at Uhl s dam a the Only difference being the ebb and flow of the tide while at Windsor it becomes even smaller but exceed in in Beautiful As it winds through the Willows and Green Meadows. Windsor is a pretty place but according to Niy idea far from impressive or Beautiful. The masonry of the Castle and the Castle itself while massive and extensive. Covering seven acres is altogether too new. The Albert Mau oleum while As gorgeous Asne v Gilt and in Uble can make it leaves n j very pern Anent impression on the mind. And the same Way with St. George s and its fresh White Marble and banne.-. Be Vivere graciously permitted by sonic Plunkey to sit outside the Itiat Small oper Etri called the divine service being performed within. The he id a by the Little Chobo. And t viled by the Gray ii aired clergy All clo Riiel in White surplice is rather in pres Ive. And so Are tiie Psahnas which Are All Sung but the Introit. As it is . Or tiie droning through tiie priest s no a of tiie Noble Sarvice of the English prayer Book is simply sacrilege. Think of asking god throw ii nose to Quot bless All a shirts and condition of men. Whether by land a v,%\ter.&Quot or Rej eating tie Litany in a measured . And i unifying it by the name of prayer. And the Sermon so called is the wore kind of Slop. Horace Greeley would Piave called it end while the epithet is coarse and repulsive it describes the fact exactly. No wonder there is so Little religion in the established Church and Itiat the people prefer to stay at Home. The Only Sermon Worth the name that we heard in an episcopal Church in England was that of Cannon Farrar who is a Low Churchman and will not tolerate Evilier the Introit or Plum Zieries of the High Church services. At Windsor i was More interested in the Royal stables than anything else. Here we get the be plus Ultra of horse life. One needs a guide Book to find his Way through. Are eighty grooms Coachmen footmen <fcc., Ani a al Rad of stable boys. Your Groom is a solemn creature clothed in Black Broadcloth and shiny stove pipe hat. And while he is not above receiving a Penny receives it in such a condescending style that it makes you feel Small and insignificant. Ill one of these Equine Cloisters i counted thirteen White horses in another were the Bays in still another were the Blacks and in still another tiie Saddle horses. Then there were All sorts and sizes of carriages from the single Phaeton that will Only hold one up to the elaborate six horse coach for big occasions. The ventilation and All the appointments for Light and food Are perfect. Happy the horse that iinds admission Here. Although he is liable to take Long Railroad rides As it is the custom whenever the Queen visits one of her castles to Send on a train in Advance made up of horses carriages servants and perhaps clergy. One of the grooms pointed out to me the tracks of the Queen s Carriage mide upon her Cepa Tare for Osbarne Castle with an air of reverence As if it was a thing that was Good for weak or democratic eyes. Upon the Oigt polite Bank of the thames is the famous school of Eton. The English always draw a Vowel Eton being pronounced like eater Aud Avon with a Long Flat a Aveon. Tipiere Are Over one thousand boys Here mostly the sons of noblemen. The air is thick with Tipeni in their ugly Little stove pipe hats turn Over collars and roundabouts. I took time and in tired about them an j their studies and habits. They begin at Aii oat ten or twelve years of age and stay ii Ere seven years devoting their time chiefly to the study of greek and latin which is carried to great perfection. After graduating they Are ready to enter Cambric a or Oxford. But a first class graduate of Eton is infinitely ahead of the graduate of any american College in his knowledge of the dead languages and probably a Jula in mathematics. If after four years More study at it Ford or a Init Edge he graduates with it is called his head is for life. If he go a into the Church he is in time made a Bishop if into Public life he is almost sure to become after awhile an m. P. Gladstone graduated the Captain at Eton and a double first at Oxford in and the next year sent to House of commons where he has remained Ever since. Some of the feature of Eton Schoolboy life Are very noticeable. Each boy has a sett of rooms and keeps House the Only meal he eat out of his room is dinner. He makes his own Tea and Toast and buys whatever else he eats. The Small boys have to wait upon tiie big ones or As it is called Quot fag Quot for them that is Sweet their rooms do the cooking and run errands. As All boys begin at the beginning. After awhile Quot tagging Quot ceases and Uliey Are waited u on by of tiers. A Duke s son often is the fag of a boy to whom ii would not speak away from school. It is thought that this develops a manhood and perhaps it does. Another carious feature of this school is its by of a of punishments. Boys disobeying the Ules of the school or not learning their be sons Are flogged. There is no Humbug about this either the punishment runs from three to twelve cuts. The cul2 Rit lets Down Iii breeches and bends Over a Block and receives his Medicine on the Bare hide and of Ien in the presence of his class. If ii is a couple of other boys hold Hini Down. I heard this anecdote one of tit boys was the son of a Duke. His Mother w is on a visit to the Queen. The Sou went to the depot to see her off on the train and Wiiilie waiting for his Mottier he could not resist the temptation to disobey one of the rules of the school and was caught in the very act by a master who took out his Pencil wrote an order that he should receive so Many cut3.and sent him Back to the school to take his punishment. Whit on the Way he met his Mother coming for. The Castle and he had to show her the order. The Duchess was obliged to sit in or Carriage while her son went to the swim Olin room and took his Medicine. The l Abicic sentiment of the school sustains Thi t to u. I barbarous sentiment of Faggin ind flogging. A pleasanter feature of the is the Are As much Cirii rated apparently As the studies. The b. either dry bobs or wet bobs that is cricketers or Boatmen. Cricket is Bro Ugnit to perfection of a science and so is boating and the Competition. Especially in tie latter is frightful. To be stroke oar or Coxs in. Or of the at Eio ii is Honor for a lifetime. Before a boy can become a wet Bob. He must pass an examination in swimming. The River thames is Black with these Little boats and i saw almost numberless Schoolboy Crews dressed in uniform. I it act icing Row so sorting men from London to Coa Clr them ing. They regularly import professional the boys Are Fine looking Fellows of All Ages from the Little midget of ten to the tall athletic Young Man of Eigi Iteen or Twenty. I walked through their i Beautiful buildings and gardens. The school was founded Over five Hundred years ago. And has included among its students such men As the Duke of Wellington Peel Chan Ning Pitt. Lord Byron. Gladstone a Cloud of statesmen scholars our Chunien and scientists All of whom upon leaving Cut their names upon some part of the buildings. I have Only time to add that the teachers at Eton Are very Able men As a Rule and receive in Many cases very High pay the head master so called. It ,000 a a ear. It is this thoroughness in education that makes England so great. This system turns out each year from one to half a dozen exceedingly Able men who in time after the proper seasoning and experience become the leaders of thought and management in English society and government. Except Quot Joe Quot Chamberlain i doubt if there is a a leading Man in the British government that has not received this peculiarly British training. This boating and cricketing together with Fox Hunting in vacation and out of door life gives them those Powers of endurance of Orshich they Are so celebrated. A life in the House of commons would kill any Ordinary Man especially if he took a leading part. And that leads me to speak of the House of commons As i saw it last monday night. In size the room is not As Large As the u. S. Senate chamber and very limited accommodation for visitors. It is As much As a Man s life is Worth to obtain admittance. There is Only seating room for >01 visitors the ladies having a Little space fenced in with an Iron screen not unlike a woman s place in a jewish synagogue. By dint of flattening their noses against this Iron screen the women of England to the number of Twenty five per evening in this Little Coop enjoy the sight of British legislative Lions. It must be said that the appointments of the room below Are first class. Tie ventilation and Light Are perfect. The members sit with their hats on and it certainly does not Inake a Beautiful or Graceful sex i odium for a dist Ingui hed orator full of Quot words that Breattie and thoughts that Burn to begin As they mostly do begin by taking their hats off and secreting them under tiie Bend. It is not Safe to to put them on the seat behind the orator for they Are liable in Case of a sudden peroration. To be sat Down upon. Tipiere Are no desks. The members sit in rows on Long Cusi ironed benches Sacii sent with a plate upon tie rail containing the occupant s name. This contributes greatly to facilitate business for there is nothing to do except to listen to the business in hand tie appearance of the body closely resembles that of t Nel Quot. S. Senate. Tie members Are a solid look inti body of men. Mostly wearing heavy Bear with litre and Tipiere a Mug comic in its solidity except Gladstone i did not see a Man that impressed himself upon me. Gladstone s splendid head and deep Black eyes Gray i air and aristocratic whiskers attract Universal attention. He looks More like a lion than any Man i Ever saw. Right opposite Gladstone sits lord Randol it a Churchill the Thorn in Gladstone s legislative Side. He is a great grandson of the Duke of Marl Borough parts his hair in Tho Middle and is As much a Fiste in his looks As Gladstone is a lion. He worries Gladstone s life out of him. As Little Percy Belmont did Blaine last Winter Over the Chili business. One of the Best pictures i Ever saw is entitled Quot dignity and you have All seen this picture a Hundred times a big Newfoundland dog and a Little poodle. Upon the big dog is the head of Gladstone and upon t be Little dog the Lead of lord Ciui chill. I am disposed to to link that Gladstone s administration is about to get a notifier fall. He Don t seem to Piave the Reid Misite tact or knowledge of men to make a i Success of his government. His Cabinet is neither the one nor the other. But a mixture of whig and Radicic. While the opposition Are a unit and acting upon the principle Quot anything not in gentle Manly. You know to beat just now the Suez canal question takes the wind out of All their sails and Trio i no re it Sion to be that Quot Jimmie Quot Crapard has got the Best of the bargain. We Are to night packing up our trunks and to Morrow at 10 a. M leave for Paris and the continent after six Mot delightful weeks in England and Scotland. I have a note Book full of memories. A. P. B. I Itok jocks Ai we left London a few Days ago for Hollands that land of fens and Dykes and wooden shoes and Strong common sense and of Liberty. Our stay of nearly a Mont i in Loudon had rendered us somewhat familiar with Metropolis which if not the Ca it it ii of tiie world is at least its monetary and mercantile Center the vastness of this City impresses one with his own littleness he seems to Loose his own personality and is swallowed up in one vast sea of humanity that can hardly take Cognize be of one of its individuals any More than can old Ocean distinguish one of its drops. Our itinerary led us to Queensborough and thence Over the North sea to Flushing. This sea is sometimes very rough and persons who had crossed before told tales of sea sickness that were bad enough but fortunately for us the winds was Calm and the sea was Placid the entire Way. In London we had some time to wait for the train and As almost anything for the want of something better attracts the attention when one has nothing to do. So Many waiting like ourselves were amused at the never ceasing restlessness of a very Small Man with a very Large wife who was fearful of taking the wrong train. On Board the vessel there was a grand Rush for state rooms and when they were secured it was found that the sexes were to be separated for the night three or four ladies being allotted to one room and three or four gentlemen to some other room and so on. This was the first evidence of discrimination against the Texas that we had thus far met with and whether or not dutch manners and customs May have had some occult reason for it we have been unable to find out. The parting of the Little Man from his wife was noteworthy Essie i ally As she seemed to think there was a Remote Chance of his Rushing overboard before the night had passed. In the morning when i had reached deck we found that we had approached within a mile of Flushing and the appearance from the water was at once striking and unique totally unlike any american City the houses stood out against the sky with an air peculiarly foreign the Gables were Steep and ran up in Little Steps As it were to the Combs of the roofs which were All covered with red tile. At intervals along the Shore could be noted a wind Mill with its huge arms whirling in the wind. I was forcibly reminded by what i saw of some of the landscapes of the old flemish masters descriptive of Holland and especially of a picture by Turner in the British gallery of Fine arts. Once on Shore we were As much amused and interested by the Many strange sights of oddly dressed country people of quaint shaped houses and Yards of narrow streets and Little carts with dogs pulling them and a Hundred other things that were new. As previously we could have found it possible to anticipate. This indeed was a foreign land. A Novelty to some a is the manner in which the station master Wiio by the Way is Here called Porter came along before the train started and roared out in deep Gutter al tones the names of the different towns which the train was to pass. It a piece of linguistic dec in a i Ament won Dertil to the ears Antl Sui Mient too Nuj a the uninitiated wit i laughter and the Little in a before spoken of nearly went into i vote is. In flus Liing very Long names frequently on the sign posts and near Railroad stood some Public institution the title of which contained t Lirty eight letters. I tried to pronounce it but it nearly dislocated my jaw so i Mei Ely copy it that you May try your hand or rather your Tongue at pronouncing it. Here it is Harnach Lens lifer i take some Pride in Titis word for if 1 have not pronounced it i would re contend it to some of the Logansport frends who Are lately giving much time to this species of accomplishment and who even go so far As to pronounce dog As Dag. The Little Man tried to unravel this word and worried himself a Good Deal Over it until his wife satisfied him by spying that it had been at one time she fancied a place of fearful torture probably dating Back to the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands when the Duke of Alva was vice intr this i feel certain was All stuff and nonsense bit it had its effect in quieting the nervous Man and his eyes set tied on the a lace to remain there till i left him. What seemed cruel and Hei artless was a number of Small wagons coming to Market filled with vegetables and each drawn by a woman and a dog. The husband walking along and a Pii etly giving his orders where to go. We made the journey from Flushing to Rosendale in about three hours through what might be Tei med a typical specimen of the scenery of the Low countries. On every hand huge Dykes were raised to keep off the incursions of the sea for most of these Rich lands have at some time been reclaimed from the Ocean. The Farmers have a novel Way of preserving their Hay fresh As if newly Cut for feeding in the Winter they do it in this Way a pit is dug about two feet deep and the Earth to Airowti out is used to raise a Low Wall around the pit. Into this place they throw the fresh Cut Hay. Ltd without allowing it to dry cover it with Earth several inches in thickness Here Tiff Hay remains fresh and Green out spoiling and is dug out and fed to the horses and cattle in the Winter time. Why is it that this plan could not be adopted in other localities and with like results a the Hiir Vest of wheat Rye and Oats is now Ripe and is being Cut with the sickle mostly by women the Cradle or the reaper have not reached to is land yet. The yield of Grain will to enormous this season through All the Low lands of Holland. It is in any of these Small villages that the traveler can see it quaint styles of dress that have descended from Parent to child for generations past and these styles Are a never failing source of interest to mrs. B. A Large portion of the land in this country is Juite Flat and actually lower than the surrounding sea. These lands Are exceedingly Fertile and Are slowed in narrow ridges Between each of which is a Furrow or ditch at least three feet deep which usually is partly full of water All summer even during a dry season and i think i May safely say that water May always be found within about two and a half feet of the surface. A Large portion of the work on the farm is done by the women and As a result they have become Strong Large boned and Broad waisted. A Farmer with his wife and a dozen grown up daughters considers himself in excellent trim for farming. As a Rule he would much rather not have boys they Are often a source of trouble to their parents they get Independent notions into their Heads and wish to join the army or if their ambition does not tend in this direction then As they grow older say about Twenty three or four they Are Apt to contract a dislike for he i by labor but prefer to go around and Alize the steady hard working daughters of some other Farmer thus they Are a constant source of trouble which the agriculturist would soon get rid of if he could Only always rely on the assistance of his daughters. I shall always have a plea ant memory of what i saw in Holland. The people As a Rule Are Well educated Corteous and honest and you meet with Many a handsome face and elegant figure. The race is a Hardy race Thrifty and enterprising and has Long ago made its Mark in the world s history. A visit to Antwerp is always an interesting one. The museum of printing the oldest in Belgium was first established in the sixteenth Century. The i it Ori Raits of the Mere ton family who a or generations presided Over the establishment painted by Rubens adorn the Walls. A full Day can be profitably spent in examining a vast Library of old books and printing presses of very strand e designs and a vast collection of etchings and to a graving. And old engravers tools All full of interest to the antiquarian. But the great Center of attraction is the Cathedral. The three paintings that la of immortalized the name of Kubi is Are ii Ere. One. The Manurs Over tiie Alt in. In Tik right transept i the Quot de cent from the and in tiv left to Ines t is the Quot Elevation of the in the it of i Roux it Iii. In perfection of Colorina. In Intel Ity of tone and magnetic nce of de Ign. These three pictures rank nigh among tiv celebrated Painti nits of the world and ire Alnio to wort ii a Viii acro a the Atlantic to see. Wiiilie we were studying then tiie Cathedral Chimes of ninety nine Bells ii Gan some Sweet Anthem and the Silver tones came swelling through the teat Church in cadences never to be forgotten and while under the influence of this spell Wlinich seemed to arouse every emotional feeling a look at the sad. Sweet Foru iving countenance of the Savior in one picture and in the other the triumphant Calm when the agonies of death had Pas de. So full of love and pain and sorrow not the i it Ain of an injured limb or nerve but the distress that comes from an unrequited love such a look leaves an impression of god s love for Man that an Hundred sermons could not convey and i cannot but feel that this sentiment would grow stronger and Strong or. Longer the in divid ital had to study tiie masterpieces of such a master. I find my kno Wied a of French invaluable to me and thus far there has been no draw Back to a proper appreciation and enjoyment of this Uriost delightful land across the Atlantic is of full of All that is elegant and in Art in whatever direction it May be of Replete with All Tho a higher in Luence that to to Enoble and refine e an. And to pret it Are him for a More elevated and better life. Yours Etc. 11. Be a. Antwerp. July a Day at Chautauqua. A Long de fire to see this fam Otts re Ort was gratified last week. The route thither was via. The Indiana. Bloomington it Western. And t be new York Pennsylvania in it Hio railways. The equipments of both roads Are first Clas. Their coaches Are elegant in finish and furnished with Tho a conveniences so a entail to the traveler s Comfort. Their roadbed Are in excellent condition and their ervice is prompt courteous and reliable. The coaches of the latter Are Lii rated by Gas. And the Fine to print can be Eaily read. Thi line is without a rival in its facilities for reaching Chautauqua. Leaving the cars at Jamestown an attractive and thriving town of . A Steamer was t Ken of head of the Lake. The sail on ple i int Orn no up this winding River a it i Quot Quot ily a by our whose Low Bau s Are t with a great variety of Tret a a Hrubey was very enjoyable and the boat steam the Lake the scenery became enchanting. Chautauqua is a Lovely Sheet of Clear water. Its length is 24 Miles and its Width varies from 2 to a Miles. It is feet above Lake Erie and 13c2 feet above the sea. It is surrounded by Woodland and Well cultivated farms which often extend to the water s Edge while at Many Points Are line hotels and handsome residences. One of the most Beautiful spot is Lakewood. 4 Miles above Jamestown. Its picturesque cottages surrounded by Forest Trees its velvet lawns gradually sloping to the Lake its meeting House its Large hotels with Shady verandas with tic water in the foreground form almost a perfect picture of Rural loveliness. At fair Point or Chautauqua As it is now called not far from the upper end of the Lake is held annually the great sunday school Assembly. Cottages boarding houses and tents Are thickly scattered everywhere in the Woods. Lamp posts and Gas works hydrants and water works electric lights an immense hotel Post office Book and grocery stores Telegraph office fruit and ice Cream stands the shrill scream of frequently arriving and departing boats express wagons ice carts delivery wagons buggies and carriages skating rink Halls too numerous to mention the vast amphitheatre the Chapel the children s Temple the local daily paper. Boot lacks Barber shops the pealing Bells the crowds of hurrying people make you think you Are in a City and Yon Are Correct in your impression for Here Are people All Bent on profit of some kind. But two signs of the common City Are lacking Viz. The lawyer s office and the Saloon. What was the origin of this Enterprise about ten years ago Rev. J. H. Vincent d. D., the sunday school Secretary of the m. E. Church with other established Here because of its romantic Beant healthful Ness and Central location a Normal school in which sunday school teachers could be trained for More it client performance of their work. The services of the Best lecturers and instructors who could be had. Were secured. Those who attended were so much benefited that they became enthusiastic Over the Chautauqua idea and their number has swelled annually. A company it pre enting it is said. .-<�00 has been formed and made All the improvements. But the original purpose has been enl arced until nov. The plan is to furnish facilities for literary and scientific training. Instruction in the hebrew latin greek Anillo s Ixon. French. German and Engin a languages is Given also ill various depart sent of science literature and Muic. Abl lecturers discuss their sgt eci Alit to. Vrej near course of study has Jeen in Narod. Everything is a it Lanned with reference to the Ini Parta tion of a better knowledge of the Bible and the Christian re ii a Ion. The Bible is tiie great Central text Book. Why is Cibau Taqua of attractive for a variety of reasons. Prom eight in the morning till ten at Nair it there is something to interest. Instruct or amuse. A daily programme is published each morning in the paper and not an hour is unoccupied. No one can complain of ennui a refit is far More Likely to be the complaint. The lectures and which there is a most Liberal Supply Are always Good while some of them Are specially Fine. The most famous men and women in this country appear on the Chautauqua platform. A chorus choir of several Hundred carefully trained and Well led. A Fine orchestra and a grand pipe Organ every night make music which stirs the blood of the most sluggish. I heard Quot Auld Lang syne Quot Sung with thrilling Power. The religious life is cared for. Daily devotional meetings under experienced leaders. Fre pint conferences by eminent workers Are full of spiritual stimulus. Great pains Are taken with the children. They have a Large Temple of their own where they Are daily gathered and taught. The biblical museum wherein Are found so much Ilin Stative of ancient customs and Bible lands is full of instruction. A miniature Palestine on the Shore of the Lake we Iii represents Well the Mediterranean sea. So Laid out As to represent its mountains and valleys and Hills and streams the Jordan Valley lakes Merom and Gennesaret and the dead Soa. Jerushu Lem. And the other cities and villages is very attractive though in Many of its details it is inaccurate. Further Chautauqua is not a a in Knsble resort. Teachers ministers and men in moderate circumstances can gather Here without being dazzled humiliate d and shamed by Tho presence of the taunt aug Bon ton. Vulgar wealth does not at Chautauqua but brains and religion. There Are no races no boats Are permitted to land on sunday no sunday excursions Are allowed. No notice is taken of one s dress if it be decent. The spirit of the place is thoroughly democratic. What is the denominational status of this institution Methodi Stic. Its head. Or. \ incent is a methodist As Are most if not All the incorporator. The most of the streets or avenues Are named after methodist Bishops and ministers. The favorite figure of or. Vincent is Quot Chau Tauna s Root in Methodi Stic its trunk evangelical and its branches this my be True but in All such institutions the Root gives life and direction to the whole growth. Still men and women of most of the religious bodies Are engaged in it and Are warmly welcomed. Bat All the has the methodist sound. What about a Utility of the work accomplished variable. Some of it is Good and some of it is worse than Good for nothing. Its main Benefit is the mental and spiritual activity which it aroused. Almost anything is better than stagnation especially when on the whole a right direction is Given to the movement. Whip the lectures and addresses Are Good yet some of the class room instruction is vague and exceedingly inaccurate. I heard the instructor in the new testament say that there is no More connection Between classic greek and new testament greek than there is Between Man and the Monkey. Between both is a wide unabridged chasm. The one is not derived from the other. A greater Absurdity no Man Ever uttered. Had it not been for the classic greek the new testament greek would never have existed and the most eminent scholars of the latter have found a knowledge of the former absolutely essential to the highest degree of Success. Of much of the work performed at Chautauqua it must be said that it is quite superficial because of the hurried manner in which so much Irro und is gone Over. Still much Gootel is undoubtedly accomplished. One of the most striking events i witnessed at Cibau Tauvaa the illuminated Altet. A i a certain the outer railings of Tuu s and steamers and Large frames in Row boats and the Trees around the Shore Are thickly Hung with chinese and coloured Glass lanterns. There Are thousands of them and ail Are lighted and the boat sail in circles and let off All kinds of fire works amid the ringing of Bells and the Roar of the steam whistles the scene is Brilliant beyond description. A ship built of refuse lumber and Well oiled was Burnt and its leaping flames lighted up far and wide the Waters and added splendor to the occasion. This visit ende i with a trip Down the Lake on a warm Moonlight i ight it was so charming that the bit was exchanged wih Reguett u the hot. Dust . L. S
