Sunday morning in the announcement
that the exiled emperor of Braxil was on

LOST IN THB SOUTH 8ft A,
The Pafils Encountetod by a Ship's Cea
A tale of shipwreck In the southern
seas of Save Islanders and the romance
of a modern Robinson Crusoe is what
Capt. William Gooding tells. He was
the commander of the Portland bark
Tewksbury Sweet, lost in the South Pa
cltlo last spring, and has just arrived in
this city on his way to his home at Yar
mouth. He and his crew had been given
tip for dead, and the first Intelligence
that they were still alive' was received
about two weeks ago. Their escape from
death by the wreck and from the savages
makes an Interesting story.
The stanch American bark sailed from
New Castle, New South Wales, on March
17 for Hong Kong. On April 9 she en
countered a gale and was carried ashore
on Susanna reef, near Poseat Island, one
of the Carolina. A very high wind was
blowing at the time and the surf was
running high. The vessel commenced to
go to pieces soon after she struck. Noth
ing was saved from the vessel but one
chronometer. The crew escaped in one
of one of the ship's boats, and managed
with great difficulty to reach a small
islet to the northward, , Prom this islet,
after the storm had subsided, they made
the Island of Poseat, which is inhabited
by fierce savages.
As the boat approached the island a
fleet of canoes put olT from the shore.
There were about thirty canoes with
eight or ten men In each, all armed with
kuives and spears. Some of the savages
in their eagerness jumped overboard and
swam to the boat, each with a long
wicked knife held between his teeth.
The first savages reached the boat,
clambered in uutil the boat was nearly
swamped, then they began to strip the
sailors of their coats and outer garments,
throwing the garments aboard their own
canoes The men were soon despoiled of
everything but their undershirts. Then
the whole fleet drew in towards the
land. The savages all this time had
kept up a tremendous din of shouting
and singing, and the crowd of women
and children on the shore were dancing
and jumping about with shouts and
cries. The sailors expected no better
treatment than to be killed and eaten,
but as they learned afterward, the na-
tives of this island are not cannibals.
While the shipwrecked crew were
standing surrounded by the noisy crowd,
render any a&Bistance possible It seems
that he was left at Poseat by a trading
vessel about four years ago, his business
being to represent traders on the Cocoa
nut Islands, but the vessel never called
for Irons since leaving him, and he had
gradually assumed the habits of the
natives He Anally became like them in
appearance and manner. He had taken
to himself seven wives, and was regard
ed by the natives as a man of importance,
second only to the chief of the tribe
Irons had even forgotten many of the
common details of civilization, but he
was of good service to the castaways
no doubt saving the lives of them all.
A day or two after landing at Poseat
Capt. Gooding, who had become un
certain about his reckoning of time, and
not knowing exactly whether the day
was Thursday or Friday, asked Irons if
he knew what day of the week it was.
Irons answered that he did not, and
more than that he did not know what
year it was. He interested himself in
behalf of the shipwrecked men and hired
a canoe from the natives.
Capt. Gooding, Second Mate Qeorge W.
Harrison and one of the ship's crew set
sail ten days after their arrival, leaving
the rest of the men and First Mate Rich
ard Watchman seven men in all at
Poseat The captain and his men made
their way from island to island, touch
ing at eight different points and making
stops at each, varying from two days to
a month. They finally arrived at Kuk,
where there is a missionary station.
Here they were cared for by the mission
aries and obtained the use of the boat be
longing to the station. The missionaries
did not like to let them have the boat,
because, if deprived of it, they would be
exposed to danger of attack from natives
and deprived of their only means or
leaving the island, but Anally gave con
sent. The missionaries also told them
that had they come ashore at Poseat with
any valuables the natives would certainly
have killed them as they had others. In
the missionary boat, a stanch center
boarder, the captain made sail back to
Poseat. He then returned with bis crew
to the missionary island Two months
later the missionary vessel Morning Star
arrived and took them all to Honolulu,
where they arrived Nov. 18. From
Honolulu Capt. Gooding and part of the
crew were brought by steamer Australia
to San Francisco. Portland (Me.) Cor.

as to the nature of the most dangerous ot

the kidneys was pronounced incurable
by almost the entire medical laoulty.
To-diiy many of thorn are in doubt, and
nearly all the most advanced declare
that It not only can be regulated, but
that it can be absolutely cured.
High authorities have taken steps to
ascertain the exact views of the leading
physicians of Europe on the subject.
and their condensed opinions are given
Sir Morrull Maokensle, the leading
physician of England, said : "I would
ay generally that Bright's disease is
em-able, but the man or woman who is
troubled with it must be careful of every
action, almost of every thought."
Dr. MacLngan, physician to the Prill
sens Christian and other members of
the Royal Family, says; "The name.
Bright's disease, covers a multitude of
complaints connected with the kidneys,
particularly those complaints which r.re
due to InflamuiKtiou. How to arrest its
progress is to answer the question as to
what the latest cure may be."
Dr. William Edward Robson, physl
cianot the Royal Navy, declared; "Like
the majority of my professional breth

ease as incurable. I think so no longer.
Hundreds of my patients have lieen
