Old heart of oak-
Fur rag nt, Farragut
According to his own statement, Far
ragut was very loose lu his morals in early
mnnhi od and practiced all kinds of sin
One da..' he was called Into the cahlu or his
father, who was a shipmaster. His father
said, "David, what are you going to lie
nnvhow?" He answered, "I am going to
follow tho sea." "Follow tho sea." said
the father, "and be kicked 11I1011; III"
world and die In 11 fonlga hospital:- '
"No," said David: "lam going to com
mand like you." "No" said tee falhei;
"a boy of your habits will never command
nnythlng." And his fnther must Into tears
nnd left the cabin. From tlini day David
Farragut started on n new Hie.
Captain l'enningtou, nil honored eldei
of my Drooklyn church, was with him in
most of bis battles and had his Intimate
friendship, and he continued, wuat I had
hoatd elsewhere, that Farragut was good
and Christian. In every great crisis .. f
life ho asked and obtained the Divine di
rection. When in Mobile hay tho monitor
Teciwnsoh sauk from a torpedo and the
great warship Brooklyn, that was to load
tho squadron, turned back, ho said lie
was at n lofs to know whether to ad
vance or retreat, aud he says: "I prayed.
'() Uod, who created man and gavahlui
reason, direct mo wli.it to do. bliall 1 go
onV Aud a voice commanded me, 'Go
on," nnd I went on." Was there ever a
more touching Christian letter than that
which lie wrote to his wife from his flagship
Hartford? "My dearest wile, I writo and
loavo this iotter for you. I am going Into
Mobile bay lu the morning it God is mv
lender, nnd I hope Ho Is, and In Him 1
place my trust If He thinks it Is the propet
jilnoe for mo to die, I am ready to submit
to His will in that ns all other things. God
bless and preserve you. my darling, mid
my dear boy, If anything should happen to
1110. May Ills blessings reat upon you und
your dear mother. '
Cheerful to the end, ho said on board thn
Tallapoosa lu tho lust voyuge he ever took.
"It would be well lt I diod uow in harness.''
The sublime Episcopal service for tin dead
was never moro appropriately rendered
than over his casket, una well did all tne
forts ot New York harbor thunder ns his
body was brought to tho wharf, und well
did thn minute guns sound und the beds
toll ns in a procession having In Its ranks
the President of the United States and Ills
cabinet and the mighty 111011 nf land nnd sea
tho old admiral was carried, amid hun
dreds of thousands of uncovered heads on
Broadway, und laid on his pillow nf dust In
beautiful Woodlawn, Heptember 31), amid
the pomp of our autumnal forests.
Hi We bail with thanks the new generation
of naval heroes, those of the year 1H1W. Wo
are too near their marvelous'deeds to fully
appreciate them. A century from m. w
poutry nnd sculpture nnd painting and his
tory will do them better Justice than wo
can do them now. A dufoat at Manila would
have been an Infinite disaster. Foreign
nations not over-fond of our American lu
jtllutlons would have joined theotUersldo,
aud tho war so many months past would
have been raglug still, und perhaps 11 hun
dred thousand graves would have opened
to take down our slain soldiers and sailors.
It took this country three years to get
3vcr the disaster at Hull Hun ut tho opeu.
lug of the civil war. Uow many years It
would havo required to rocoviir from 11
defeat ut Manila in the opening ot the
Spanish war I caunot say. God averted
the calamity by giving triumph to our
navy under Admiral Dewoy, whose coming
up through tliu Narrows of New York har
bor day before yesterduy was greeted by
tho nation whoso welcoming clioers will
not cense to resound until to-morrow, and
next day In tho capital ot tho nation the
jeweled sword voted by Congress sliull be
presented amid bocmlr.g cannonade and
embannercd hosts, aud our autumnal
nights shall become a conflagration of
splendor, but tho tramp of I hose proces
sions nnd tliu flash of that 'Word anil the
bii..a of that gieeting and tho roar ot
tlios'i guns nnd the illumination of those
nights will be seen mid heard 11s long ns a
page of American history remains Inviolate.
Especially let Ihe country boys of
A ,11c rl en join in these greetings to the
returned heroes of Manila, lt is tlnlt
work. Tho chief character In nil the
scene Is tho onco country lad, (leorgo
Dewoy. Let tho Vermontcra 001110 down
and find lilin older, but the same modest,
unassuming, almost bashful person that
they went to school with and with whom
they sported 011 the playground. Tho hon
ors of all tho world cannot spoil him, A
few weeks ugo at n banquet lu ICngtuitd
some ot the titled uoblumeii were af
fronted becntiso our American minister
plenipotentiary associated tho naiuo of
Dewey with that ot Lord Nelson. As well
might we bo ufl'routfld because the name
of Nelson Is associated with that of our
most reuowned admiral. Tho ono luiiu lu
all the coining ages will Ktnn.l us high 11s
the other. Ho this dny sympathizing with
nil the festivities and celebrations of tho
past wee'e and with all thn festivities und
celebrations to come this week, let us
anew thunk God und those heroes of tea
America 1 navy who have done suoli great
tilings for our beloved land. Coma aboard

whether still in the active service or hou
orably discharged and ut homo having re.
sinned citizenship. And ye men of tho
past, your lust battle on tho suns fought,
take from me, In God's name, animation

Robert Uurns was once standing up
on the quuy at Greenock when a weal
thy merchant belonging to that town
had the misfortune to fall In the har
bor. A tailor plunged In, and, at tho
rlslt of lils own llfo, rescued the mer
chant, v.ho could not swim. When
tho leacutd man was restored to con
Bclousness lt was found that tho fright
and tho wetting were tho only bad cou
neqiiencea of his mishap. . Calling for
the uullor, hW preserver, tho merchant,
presented him with his thanks and a
shilling. The crowd loudly protested
m;aliist such shabby conduct, but
Uurns, with a scornful smile, begged
them to bo silent, "for, said he, "the

SENSES OF THE DLIND.

The lyancet: A lorg scrlen of experi
ments tins recently been made, by Prof.
11. Grlesbarh, of Ilasle, upon the rein
live ecutenrsB of the s-nses of hear
ing, touch, tnBte nnd smell In the rase
of the blind and those who josat'ss
normal vision. The ickiiIis ore con
talnrtl In Pfltigr.'s Archlv. The obser
vaSions were nimie on tb.os who were
otherwlso healthy. In the differentia
tion of tactile l:nprCT3lowi no remark
able cUffercncca wero observed betweo t
the seeing end Ihe blind, or If tmnll
differences, did exist they were in favo
of the seeing. In those born blind the
tactllo sharpness was somewtrat Irs
Ihsn In the seeing, and In some ensej
the sensorlum generally was equally
defective. Tho blind In particular feel
less acutely with Ih? tip of the Index
ftaifcr than do these who see, and in
many cares the tactile uruteneHS of tho
two index finger tips differs. In the
blind, (-specially In the region of the
hand, a stronger Impression Is re
quired to produce n tactile Impression
than In thosie possessed of slsht. In
Ihe capability of localizing Impression
of sound no difference exists between
Ihe blind and the scelnc. hi both
great Individual variations occur. As
a rule, both in the seeing and tho
Mind the t;se of the orpin of both
sides gives better results than the use
of or.e ulone. No difference In the
BeiitenPi's of hearing exists between the
blind ond those who see. No relation
was observed hetween thn BcutenesB
of hearing and the power of localizing
sounds In cither the seeing or the
blind. No difference was observed in
the two classes in regard to tho aruto
ncss of pnit-ll. In the execution of
mnntinl labor tho blind become fa
tigued sooner than do those of equal
age who eeo. The blind nro more fa
tigued with manual than with mental

On June 30, 1898. the pension rolls
of the Vnlted States contained 193,714
names. Forty-three thousand were
dropped during the fiscal year 34,345
because of death and 8,841 because ol
remarriage. On the other hand, 40,991
new claims were allowed, so that the
number of pensions stood on June 31
last at 991,519. The decrease in ex
penditure (luring the year was much
more marked, the total falling from
$144,051,0110 In 1897-9S to $138,253,000 in
IS98-99. This last is the smallest sum
disbursed since the new condition?
created by tho dependent act have hat!
to be faced, and reasonablo assurance
of u further natural shrinkage in the
tin nual expenditures Is to be found In
the fact that $3,000,000 less were paid
out last year than thrco years ago,
when the list of pensioners was fully
11,000 shorter than it is today. How
slight an addition to pension burden!
the war with Spain will make may he
guessed from the statement that, al
though 16,980 claims have been filed
for disabilities Incurred In that biirl
contest, only 295 havo so far been
passed on favorably. Altogether, the
outlook for a diminished pension ac
count has greutly Improved.
