The "phantom ship" seen hv the vi
cinlty of Cr.pe Horn Is. as hnf been
proved by the Investigation of various
hydrographlc bureaus, nothing more
or less than rock which under cer
tain atmospheric conditions bears a
deceptive resemblance to a ahlp. .
Very often vessels coming from Eur
rope to the west by way of. Cape
Horn have been startled to see what
appeared to be a derelict with the
water, washing over her deck. If the
sailors were of an imaginative turn
they would Invest the unknown ship
with ghostly qualities and call her the
Flylug Dutchman or sometimes the
"ghost ship" of Le Malre, from the
strait of that name, where she was
usually seen. .- ;.;
One of the stories which have been
longest remembered Is that of the ill
fated Crown of Italy, which sighted
went ashore. The Crown of Italy was
standing ' close to the jagged ' black
rocks at the entrance to the strait Of
Le Malre when she sighted what
seemed " to be a waterlogged bark
drifting , on the rocks of the strait.
Many. other. ships rounding the Horn
have seen a similar apparition, and the
various hydrographlc offices of the
world have received many reports to
Some years ago the Norwegian bark
Servla got into Seattle with the tale
of a phantom ship that almost exactly
corresponded to that given by the
Crown of Italy. The second officer of
the Norwegian vessel declared that he
bad seen a derelict with sails set and
decks awash drifting In through the
strait It was this report that led our
government officers to make public the
declaration that the phantom ship wsb
nothing but a combination of rock
The numerous reporU of derelicts
ghost ships always appearing in the
same place led even the Argentine
government to look into the matter.
A tender was sent out from the near
by lighthouse with the object of mak-,
ing an investigation, and it was found
that the apparition was due to a
strange freak of nature. Among the
black Jagged ' rocks that line both
sides of the strait of Le Malre there
is one In particular which, under cer
tain atmospheric conditions, bears a
deceptive likeness to a ship. The
formation of the rocks and the shad
ows they cast combine to produce the
effect of a bark running under short
The passage through the strait of
Le Malre is not often made. Steamers
shorten the route by going through
the strait of Magellan, while sailing
vessels usually prefer to be entirely on
the safe side by going still farther
south and rounding, the Horn Itself.
Only under the most favorable condi
tions of weather do they slip through
the strait of Le Malre on the outward
trip, going toward the southwest but
never when bound for the north. For
this reason many old sailors bare
never met the ghost ship or the rock
ship..' ' :'' v.''-
Those who have seen it give a mi
nute description of the rock and testify
to Its striking resemblance to a ship.
It seems to be standing head on, point
ing to the south and low in the water.
The sails are shortened as they would
be In what sailors call half a gale.
The whole formation Is very dark, as
if the hull were painted black and the
sails weather beaten. It has three
masts and Is higher on the fore than
on the main. Upon coming on the side
of the vessel the illusion vanishes and
the whole thing resolves itself into a
conglomeration of black rocks. The
perpetual fog of these regions helps.
of course, to befuddle the vision. .
The rock looking like a ship Is by no
means a rare natural formation. Al
most every sailor has seen one In some
part of the world. In the CUpperton
Islands there Is a great white rock
looking like a three masted schooner
leaning n the wind with her royals

for the Days When You Can

Have you thought of the time when old age and
physical infirmities will cause the man at the desk to
say, "Charlie, you have been a faithful man for years .
and it is with the deepest pain that I tell you old age
prevents this company from further employing you
unless we reduce you to a minor position.''? ; , , .
- Tel this is whaj happens io aii ox us. Age prevents "
-us from retaining highest usefulness. Not one man,
bat all meet the same conditions.
This being true, friends, what is better than an in

What is better than being able to say to the wife,
"Well, wife, it was fortunate that we invested a few
hundred dollars a year when I was able to make mon
eywhen I was in my prime and the children were
small." ' It is with such an assurance that the man
whose name appears on any company's pay roll can

But 'what can the small investor buy that is sure to
increase in value, and yet have his investment safe?
That is a question which has confronted every man
who gets his check. That is a question that the shys
ter, .the crook and the confidence man has taken ad
. vangtage of for years and years. " The stock Jobber
and the worthless bond seller have played upon this
very heartstring to fill their own pockets with wealth
from the man who works.
There is one investment which has stood the test
of time; that has been solid and firm when all else
trembled; that investment is land.; When one owns
and has title to Mother Earth he has something that
only revolution and the dethronement of this republic

But ordinary land does not offer the returns' that
the, small investor is entitled to receive unless that
land be located in a fruit growing section and is set to
a growing orchard. If his investment is in orchard
land in the right locality the investor cannot only be
sure of future income but he can also be certain of,
immense increase in value a thing that nothing buts

With Orchard property a man does not have to buy
a half section to. make a living. A few acres not only
will care for him and his family but it will make him
money besides. It is safe as to crop in this valley and
the market is assured. ' .
Then why ponder of what you will do with your
savings when at home right here in Union county
you can. own a tract of fruit land, have it cared for
