BOATS OF HDIEHSE T0NHAGE.
Soma Mighly Graft Builded by
Egyptians The Modern Ship
i Pat to Blnsli.
We mdderns are justly proud of the
wonderful and magnificent specimen?
of naval architecture that crowd the
great ports of tho world. If there is
anything new tinder the sun, a first
class ocean steamer, it is believed, is
that rarity. In our conceit we recall
only the galleys and triremes of the
ancients that scarce ever ventured
beyond the coast line, aud the small
barks in which Columbus and those
who followed him conquered a new
world and gave commerce its greatest
field. But the ancients built many
goodly sized crafts and made luxury a
study on some of them.
That much controverted craft, the
ark, is an example of bigness. Her
tonnage is estimated at about fifteen
thousand tons, smaller it is true than
that of the Great Eastern. No less
an authority than Lindsay thinks that
she was simply a raft of stupendous
size, having upon it a strnclure resem
bling a huge warehouse. As no
means of propulsion wero necessary
this description may be correct. The
cargo however, was unique and prob
ably the most valuable one ever car
ried. The tctcription of the ark as
given in tho Scriptures, makes the
vessel about -150 feet in length, 75 feet
in breadth and 45 feet in depth, pro
portions similar to those now in use
for great vessels.
But'as the agnostic is not sure that
this lifeboat of the human race over
existed, and as the materialist is sure
she never was built, let us take for ex
ample of big ancient vessels some
other craft vouched Tor upon the au
thority of profane and not sacred
writers. The Egyptians, fond of large
things aud big dimensions, made the
big tonnage vessels of ancient times.
Ptolemy (Philopator) would have ap
preciated tho Great Eastern. Ho was
fond of building big boats. One of
these is said to have been 420 feet
long, 57 feet broad and 72 feet deep
from tho highest point of the stern.
Ths vessel had four ruDders, or what
some would call steering oars, as they
wero not fastened, each 45 feet long.
She carried 4,000 rowers, besides 3,000
marines, a large body of servants un
der her decks, and stores and provis
ions. Her oars were 57 feet long, and
the handles were weighted with lead.
There were 2.C00 rowers on a side,
and it is supposed that these were di
vided into five banks. That this ex
traordinary vessel ever put to sea is
donbted, but that she wn3 launched
and used at times, if only for display,
several historians arc agreed.
Another "ship," the Thalamegus,
built for one of the Ptolemies, is said
to have been 300 feet long, 40 feet
broad and 60 feet deep. This was afar
more magnificent vessel than any
previous one. An Alexandrian his
torian, Catlixenus, in describing
her, speaks of her having colonnades,
marble stairs and gardens.
Another great vessel, historical by
reason of its size, i3 one built by
Hiero.Eong of Syracuse. Her dimen
sions are estimated to be large from
the description of her cargo and the
number of her decks and houses.
She is supposed to have been sheathed
with lead, and accomplished at least
one successful voyage. A full de
scription of her would read somewhat
like that of ono of our Long Island
sound or Hudson river steamboats.
She had three entrances, the lowest
lea ling to the hold, the second to the
eating rooms and- third appropriated
to the soldiers. There were thirty
rooms, eacn navmg four couches, for
the soldiers; there were fifteen conches
in the sailors' supper room, and there
were three more cabins, each having
three couches. Tho floors of all
these rooms were laid in stone mosaic
work. There was also a temple of
cypress inlaid with ivory and ded
icated to Yenus. The mainmast was
composed of a single tree, and tho ves
sel carried four wooden and eight iron
anchors. As a freight carrier she
would rival tho largest of ocean
tramps. It is recorded that ono or
two of the launches belonging to her
would carry about eighty tons. This
vessel is said to have earned "sixty
thousand measures o" corn, ten "thou
sand jars of Sicilian salt fish, twenty
thousand talents' weight of wool, and
of other cargo twenty thousand
talents, all of which was in addition to
the provision required for tho crew."
These are tho notably big vessels of
ancient times, but the supposition is
that as rulers, whether long or peo
ple, were as emulous ih those days as
these, other big craft were also built.
From the foregoing description the
thought is suggested that the first de
signers of our own river steamboats
may have heard of the Egyptian and
Syracusan vessels and taken a hint
from them in building floating palaces.

trip he visited" a friend in Sweden.
While in this friend's houM he Jue&rd

there. Turning to his friend, Mr.
Buszits said: "KIshould ever marry

"What do you think Mr. Buszits just

FINDING A LOST CITY.
Discovered at the Bottom of the Adriatic
The city authorities at Bovigno, on
the peninsula of Istria, on the Adriatic
sea, have discovered, a little south of
the peninsula, the ruins of a large
town at the bottom of the sea. It has
been observed for some years that
fishermen's nets were Sometimes en
tangled in whatappeared to be masses
of masonry, of which fraginonts were
brought up from the sea bed. A vear
or two later a diver declared that he
had seen walls and streets below the
The city authorities recently de
cided to investigate. They sent down
a diver, who, at the depth of eighty
five feet, found himself surrounded on
the bottom.of the sea by ruined walls.
Ho said ho knows they are the
work of man. He is a builder by
txado and recognized tho layers of
Continuing his explorations, he
traced the line of walls and was able
to distinguish how the streets were
laid out. He did not see any doors or
window openings, for they were hid
den by massed seaweed and incrusta
tions. He traced the masonry for a
distance of 100 feet, when he had to
stop; his diving cord did not permit
him to go further. He had proved
beyond a doubt that ho had found the
ruin of a once inhabited town, which,
through catastrophe, had been sunk
to the bottom of the sea.
Some people think they identify
this lost town with the island men
tined by Pliny tho Elder, under the
name of Cissa, near Istria. This
island cannot bejound now, and it is
thought the submerged tqwn may
have been a settlement on tho island
that so mysteriously disappeared.

The dog very of ten accompanied him
to and from the store. He was at the

was given to go home. The dog
started out, going up Lisbon street
to Main, and down Main across the
two bridges into Auburn. At the
postoffice, however, he was seen to
stand on the corner as though waiting
sor something. A few minutes later a
horse car came along, and the dog ran
out and boarded it and rode home,

Bernhardt wears in her "Cleopatra"
are not dresses at all, but strips of
material wound around her little body
and fastened with jewels. But there
is as much individuality to each ar
rangement as to the confection of a
The first costume which the divine
Sai a wears and which has no shape
save that which her body Jends it,
is of sky blue, with a girdle of
precious stones and a sacred serpent
surrounding the coiffure made of gold
and jewels. The next is a band of
crepe de chine enveloping the body
in pale rose color, with coiffure of
wild passion robes and a golden
serpent for a girdle, its head fashioned
of a single emerald, its eyes of. rubies.
There is a wondprful costume of yel
low stuff embroidered with gold and
worn with a violet girdle. The feet
are bare and the toes blaze with
jeweled rings like the amorous
queen's slender fingers. And
thero is a purely Grecian cos
tume, richly embroidered, and last
of all the magnificent golden Egyptian
dress, embroidered all over with gold,
and completed by a marvelous Egyp
tian head-dress, gleaming with count
less precious stones of all colors. The
jeweled girdles are all that will
save Sara from encountering the full
jneasure of the law at the hands of
the spleeny Comstock. Tho snakes
are rather more troublesome than
Mme. Bernhardt anticipated, but two
of them are becoming very docile.
Tho tragedienne declares that the
sensation of cold which contact with
them produces, is indescribably

lest they find it dull. She had tried

were not Parisian enough to amuse
themselves in that way.

CONQUERED AT LAST.
Confederate Killed by a Pair of Yankee
S. C. Bowen, of Nashville, Tenn.,
says: The true story of the death of
General Ewell is known only to a
few. As a young man he was quite a
dandy, and continued to pay a great
deal of attention to his dress until
August, 1862, when he lost a-leg at
the battle of Groveton., He recovered
m a tew montns ana Jea iiis troops
until the close of the "war, but with
tho loss of his leg he also seemed to
lose all interest in his. personal ap
pearance, and after he went back to
his farm in Tennessee was in the
habit of wearing the most dreadful
old. garments imaginable, saying that
it made no difference how a one
legged man looked. A year or two af
ter the close of the war there was a

He issued them to his workmen,
and at last took up the habit of wear

and on a damp day in the winter
Ewell took a cold, which developed
into pneumonia, and from which he
never recovered. A day or two before
his death, when he knew there wa3 no
hope, he said to a friend: "Tho enemy

once, and on more than one occasion
I thought I was as good as dead.

that I had nothing more to fear, but I
was mistaken, for here I am at last
dying of a pair of Yankee breeches."
