HOURS AND HIS FLAG.
AN EPISODE OF WAR DAYS IN THE
HARBOR OF HONG-KONG.
An Impatient Yankee Kklpper Who Had
Confidence In Ills Ship nnd Who Dared
the Alabama Flying Two Flags In Neu
tral Waters How the Escape Was Made.
"During the greater part of the war,"
Mid tho retired skipper, "there were a
large number of American clippers stall
ed in Hong-Kong harbor, having order
to remain there from their owners, who
feared the Alabama. This arrangement
did not nt nil please the captains ahd
omcei s, as many of ns were anxious to
go home nnd ship in the navy, but orders
were orders. W e could not leave the
ships, and the frequent visits of the Alu
bama herself to tho hurlior, forcing her
self 'into our midst.' us the saying goes,
weTe very vivid reminders that nontral
waters were a pretty good sort of an in
vention. "Although we passed the long weeks
and months as pleasantly as we could,
with all kinds of arrangements for kill
ing time, both on shipboard and on
shore, there was of conrso a continual
and concerted growl going up from our
little) band of Yankee skippers, and old
Hobbs was the star growler of ns all.
"His ship was the Humming Bird, a
brand new clipper hailing from Boston.
The trip out to Hong-Kong had been her
maiden one, and it was chafing to Hobbs'
not very smooth temper to have hor lie
idle so early in her career. Having great
faith in the ship's speed and in his own
seamanship, he was more than anxions
to put to sea and lot Semmos catch him
if he could; but, like the rest of us, his
orders to remain were positive.
"Occasionally a ship would manage to
clear by sailing under some foreign flag,
but ns it was a complicated process in
volving fathoms of red tape and very of
ten foil through just when everything
seemed favorable it was not resorted to
very ofton. When it was tried, however,
old Hobbs would go on his beam ends
with wrath. He wonld fume and rant,
casting aspersions on, tho patriotism of
the owners, the agents', the officials, and
even the Chinese crew. He was so in
tensely patriotio that to see a good Yan
kee craft sail under false colors would
keep him boiling for a week.
"You can see what his foelings were
when one day he was ordered to proceed
to Sumatra undor the British flag. He
fumed, ranted and swore and then
fumed, ranted and swore over again,
with a few extra choice nautical anath
emas thrown in for emphasis. This nec
essary operation over, ho sent ashore to
the native sailmaker's for a British flag
the smallest to be had. When it came
aboard it was about 2 by 4 f oet in size
Hobbs looked at it askance and or
dered it to be put out of sight until sail
"Sailing day arrived, and the British
flag was seen fluttering quietly from its
proper place on the Humming Bird. It
attracted mighty little attention, how
over, for the Alabama was entering the
harbor. She floated slowly along and
dropped anchor exceedingly close to the
Humming Bird. About this time the
harbor master was seen in his boat be
ing rowod rapidly toward Hobbs' ship,
and a huge bundle of bunting about the
size of au old shellback's sea chest was
rapidly haulod to the maintop of the
"The harbor master pulled up along
side the Humming Bird and yelled for
the captain. It could be seen that he
was angry about something. Hobbs
came to the rail in his plug hat and long
tailed bottle green coat, the customary
uniform of a skipper in those days,
and asked the harbor master what he
" 'I want you to take down that flag
instantly, sir,' said the harbor muster.
" 'Gueaa not,' said Hobbs.
" It's a disgrace, sir, and an insult to
host such .a flag as that I'
"What's tho matter with the fiat;?
sitid Hobbs, surprised.
" 'It's nil wrong, ftr; tho proportions
nto nil wrong. The field ts too long for
it width, mid I'"' rest of it istoo wide for
its length. Tho crosses are wrongly nr
rnntfcd, ir, and it is a vilo caricature of
an honored flaff, sir! Remove it imme
diately!' 'Oness not,' said Hobbs again. 'Thnt
flag was bought in a British port and
ttiado by a British subject. Ho was a
Chlnnmnn, but that is neither hero nor
there. I don't care if it is tho flag of
Pntagonitt, so long as it was sold to mo
for that of England. Oood morning!'
"The harbor master had nothing to say
to this and started back, but he had no
sooner done so than the tunin halliards
wore pulled, tho bundlo at the peak
broko out, and in a second the stars and
stripes were waving before the aston
ished eyes of the harbor master, the Yan
kee skippers and Cnptnin Semmes of the
Alabama. Indeed, so large was Old
Glory in this particular case that it nl
most brnshed tho Alabama's decks, tho
vessels lining so near together. Tho huge
flag had been presented to tho ship at
her tunnelling and to tho excited spec
tators on this occasion seemed larger
than tho ship hersolf.
"The harbor tnnster put about, angrier
than before, and demanded explanations.
" 'What does that flag mean, sir?' said
" 'That's my housu flag,' said Hobbs;
'tho trademark of my owners. I do not
lmow whether that red rag up there is
humpbacked nnd chibfooted or not, but
you enn't givo mo any points on the con
struction of that article up there with
tho stripes on it. I propose to fly that
flag how I please, when 1 please and
where I please, whether it bo in Hong
Kong or in h . For tho second time,
good morning!' aud Hobbs went below.
"Semmes was so angry over the stars
and stripes flaunting in his face that ho
swore to blow tho Humming Bird out of
the water if he ever caught her outside,
no mutter what ting she sailed under.
He never did it, however, as this voyage
hnng fire as so many others did, mid us
shortly after this tho Alabama exchanged
with tho Kearsarge certain little civili
ties we all know about liis blowing days
wore over." New York Sun.

We were speaking of Emerson, and 1
had shown my idolatry of that sweet
Athenian Yankee, when mv friend said;
"There is no question that Ralph 7aldo
Emerson was a grand old American
Socrates, or Plato if you will, but much
of tho starch of my venoration for htm
was taken out by tho way ho onco coil'
tended with tho newsdealer at tho Cause
way street end of tho Fitchbnrg depot
for tho reduction of the price of a Boston
evening dnily paper because it was of tho
issue of a day or two previous. It re
minded mo of tho huckstering I wit
nessed in a bnkesliop gome time before,
whero a woman insisted on having a
8-ccnt loaf for 8 cents because it was two
days old, and finally, after a wordy con
tention with tho worthy white capped
baker, compromised by paying 4 cents
for the bread.
"Ralph, tho venerable, had tho cour
age of his mercenary convictions and in
sisted for a time on having a cent reduc
tion on the price of the paper. Tho
newsdealer, too, had tho courage of his
trade and did not seem to caro a banbee
for the author of tho 'Over Soul,' al
though I found afterward that ho knew
the intellectually august gentleman with
whom he was dealing. Knowing the
person of tho Concord philosopher, I was
amused enough to wait ovor another
train, had not tho purchaser and vender
compromised, and the dear good man
bought the wished for old paper with
another of that evening's issue." Bos

HEADY FOIl THE HONK
CONVERSATION OF A MAN WHO WAS
PRIMED FOR A DYSPEPTIC.

Words In the Course of a Ins; Talk,
"You are so burly and robust," said
the orgulous dyspeptic, with secret
scorn, to his casual traveling acquaint
ance, "that I presume you are never
troubled with dyspepsia. Yon have
much to be thankful for. t am often in
such a state that"
Was the burly acquaintance to endure
the garrulity of a chance dyspeptic? ' He
'On the contrary," he Immediately re
plied, for, never having suffered a mo
ment in his life from any physical ail
ment, his mind was active and vigilant
"On the contrary, I have suffered un
told torture from dyspepsia, and as you
are interested in the subject I will will
ingly give you my experience. I began
with the finest digestion in the world,
but while engaged in the military service
of tho country, being 10 years scouting
on the frontier, the character of the ra
tions, together with the quality of the
confections of soldier cooks previously
engaged in driving hacks and slugging
"Oh, my trouble was not with cooks,'
interposed the dyspeptic loftily, but
nevertheless much chagrined to find the
burly acquaintance prepared to talk on
on the subject "As I was about to tell
yon, 1 am often in such a state that"
"And the irregularity of tho meals,"
hurried on the burly acquaintance,
"served, you understand, in camp, al
fresco and a la fourchette sans cereinonie,
threw me into such disorder that I had
indigestion, then dyspepsia, then non-
assimilation. 1 submit ted my case to the
army surgeons. They advised me
"Doctors are of little use. I will tell
"To confino myself to the simplest and
most digestiblo edibles and esculents to
be found in the military commissary.
But 1 grew worse, and the surgeons or
dered me back to civilization, where 1
could obtain the delicate nutriment
which my disordered and seriously im
paired system rennired. I went to Chi
cago nnd liegan a diet of chicken broth,
fresh fruit, stale bread made from newly
ground graham, steamed oatmeal
"Oh, I tried all those. Five years
"The result was that 1 grew worse, as
before, aud the local doctors advised me
to go to to go to New York, where I
should be able to find foods better suited
to my parlous state. Accordingly I went
to New York aud laid out a diet of the
finest and purest of the selected foods
that that metropolis affords"

"My physician advised exact regular

ounces farinaceous food, two ounces of
the juice of fresh imported fruits and
two ounces coagulated albuminoids ev

I consulted higher medical talent. Ono
doctor kept me on clam broth, another
on tangerines, another on shredded
broiled frogs' legs, another on distilled
"Five years ugo"
"Growing Bteadily worse, I consulted
still higher huthority. I wns now told
that my diet was at variance with na
ture. The doctor told me that nature
was proportion, rhythm, music foods
must be takon in harmonious propor
tions. He prescribed the same sea foods,
cereals, meats nnd fruits as the others,
but in a chromatic scale of the decreas
ing seventh, throwing in occasionally a
few vegetables by way of variation of
the fugue and double extracts as over
tones" "Of course yon recovered, your case
being merely temporary"
"Growing steadily worse, I consulted
a doctor who had had great success
among the millionaires financial suc
cess. He was a man of blunt speech
and plain common sense. He said I had
overworked my stomach and must givo
it entire rest. What I was to do for a
living in the meantime ha did not say,
but he took a large fee with great scorn,
rightly despising me for the small
amount of money that he left me. My
stomach was now worse thnn ever. It
refused to be cajoled and despised my
offers of peace. Excuse mo a moment
Once I had spent over 48 hours fasting.
I then drank two drams of soda mint
with four ounces of aqua pura every
thing was now drams, scruples and
ounces with mo, and the zigzag symbols of
those distressing quantities appeared in
my nightly nightmares like a procession
of Daniel Quilps and Humpbacks of No
tre Dame as I say v drams of sterilized
milk at 70 degrees centigrado, with iv
wiggles of bismuth and ii jiggle jagglos
of soda, with a couple of glasses of wine
and pepsin to aid in the mysterious proc
esses of digestion.
"The large amount of actual food con
tained in the ounce of milk began to dis
tress me exceedingly, but the wine, to
which I was not accustomed, gave me
courage. I took several more doses of it
immediately, increasing the doses rhyth
mically. I had not felt so well in months,
I said. 'Wine is undoubtedly a mocker,
bnt it is a good rubifaciont, besides pogs,
sessing valuable qualities as an antinar
cotio and merrymaker. Now, very well,
Mr. Stomach,' I said, 'you are unamena
ble to gentleness, unmoved by kindness
mail iresiousiv to the concord of ".
culinary symphonies'.- I will givo you
something to rnge about.' Putting on
my lint, 1 wnlkml lightly adown tho
street, and entering, not a doctor's wait
ing room, bnt a reBtnurnnt, I instantly
ordered nnd partook of a repast consist
ing in part of turtlo soup, roast old goose,
broiled fat lobsters, corned beef and
cabbage, salt pork, hot rolls, Italian
chceso, tripe, mince pio, black coffee,
chartreuse nnd a black and green cigar.

I hope yon will never be troubled as I've
been. Good day." New York Sun.
Disrobed In the Street.
, There is a young colored damsol in
Washington whose soul is at present
filled with wrath because of the sum
mary action taken by a society woman
to whom she had been handmaiden.
With wnys that are dark and tricks that
are vain the young woman proved her
self conversant by making away with
articles of value. Among these was a
silk dress of which her mistress had been
especially fond. Though accused of the
theft, the woman stoutly denied It and
took hcrdismissal, vehemently protesting
her innocence. Not long afterward, as
the daughter of Ham was sailing down
the street in all the glory of the stolen
garment, she came upon her mistress
rapidly walking toward her with the
look of a great purpose in her eye.
Retrent was impossible, as was a fall

coldly, without even turning her head,
