Jorirenaeii'H ftrnnee bnt Fatal
Tn Fept ember 1879, the tcliooner
JVh'te JVave railed from San Fran
civa bound for the North Pacific, there
t hrot sea otters and teals.. The souls
on board were few, consisting only of
the Captain, Richard Williams by
came and an Englishman by birth, al
though he had become a naturalized
citizen of the TJ. S., three sailors, a cook
and two sharp-shooters, one namd
Seth. Mitchell, a native of Connecticut,
and the other called'llans Jorgensen, a
Swede. The "White Wave wab built
to stand weather, and was as taut a
craft as eer came off. the New Haven
stocks, but she had occasionally to cwn
that the elements were her superior.
The up ti ip was made iu good time,
and the fti-hing, or rather sporting
grounds off the Is'and ot St. (ieoriie
were reached without accident or even
encountering a rough day. About tho
end of the month, however, a furious
gale sprang np suddenly from the
Southwest and drove the schooner across
to within a lew leagues of the i Aleu
tian Islands. According to the Cap
tain's log-book, which -lias beeu placed
at the disposal ot a Chronicle repoiter,
it appears that on the 28lh of Septem
ber, being then or about 52 degrees
north latitude and 1C8 degrees wea
longitude, he sent a b.-at on shore to
one of the islands which was quite new
to him, to look tor water, the boaiV
crew consisting of two sailors and
flans Jorgensen. Whilst on shore the
swede, who had his title with him,
started in chase ot a fox. The gale
was now blowing due west, and as
the Captain found himself drifting, he
made urgent signals for the immediate
return of the boat. Jorgensen hat!
i. ot come back , and the sailors) atier
deliberation, rowed to the schooner
with same difficulty to acquaint ! Cap.
tain Williams of the fact. The Cap
lain was, as may be Imagined, excess
ively irritated, and was in much doubt
what to do when the wind settled the
difficulty by raising in sudden fury
atid driving the schooner still further
THE RETCIJN OF THE SCHOONER.
Four days had passed away before
Captain Wil iams was enabled to re
turn to the spot where Jorgensen : had
been left, and it was with much pleas
ure that (he Swede was found aiive and
well, although changed in appearance
to an extraordinary degree. j
Jorgensen had a strange story to tell,
The Fox had escaped notwithstand
ing the Swede's marksmanship, but so
exciting was the chase that he must
have wandered mi'es in pursuit before
he gave u the bushy-tailed game and
thought ot returning to the boat, i The
country was of the most b'.eak and des
olate discretion, chaotic masses of vol
canic rocks lay around in confusion,
and not a shrub or tree ot any dis-crip-
tton broks the desolation. Here and
there were crevasses, or rents in the
earth, at the dark bottom ot Which
small but tapid streams worked a j tor
tuotts course along their rocky beds,
and beside these 'streams there grew
huge masses of lichen, such, as Jorgen
sen had never seen before. I'rom other
ravines or cracks iu tho earth's crust
there aroso heavy volumes of steam.
impregnating the air with a sulphurous
smell, Jorgensen was A man ot limited
imagination, though a good shot, j yet
so impressed was he with the horrible
surroundings that he declared it seemed
to him as it he were looking upon a
piece of the earth as it must have been
before any living creature put fool there
on. Progress even ot matter had !nct
visited this spot, which retained the
ghastly desolation ot the pre-Adamite
word. 't was not surprising that
among the irregularities ot Buch a coun
try he should find such difficulty in
keeping his way, for though by climb,
ing to thehightof some escarpment; he
was enabled to see the sea, almost a
soon as he descended from bis lookout
he became lost iu a maze of bolder
strewn canyons. When at length5 he
reached the shore, struggling 'against
the gain that shrieked over both land
and sea, he raw he : White, Wave
with shortened sad flying to the west,
ward. He look in the situation' at
once and was confident that Captain
Williams would return for him as soon
as the storm abated. j
t Jt , Weary wait.
There was nothing to do but wait ;
and when after a sapperless nightV
camping oat, lie woke to Sod so signs ;
of the schooner, and a gnawing at his
stomach, it became necessary to look
for something to eat The search on
the near land was entirely fruitless, and
he did not dare to go far from shore
tor fear ot missing the schooner. Shore
and sea seemed alike unproductive in
this desolate region, and JorgenFen
was beginning to fear dea;h by starva
tion when a j strange chance provided
hira with food. Weakly crawling to
the summit of an eminence which rose
about u half-mile in-shore, and which
he had been accustomed to use as a
lookout, he was overcome with some
thing like a ; tainting fit, and fell back,
wards, rolling down a gulch which . lay
on the laud side. When he recovered
consciousness he fouud that the stock
of his rifle, Which he had involuntarily
retained hold of, had struck against one
of a number of rebbly-looking
objects which lay around, and in so
striking had broken it. The broken
ohjoct; lay within a few inches of Jor
gensen's head, and he could see that the
pebble was in reality but a slight shell
or lime or sulphur or something he
was not geologist enough to say what
covering a quantity of jel'y. It looked
like jelly, anyhow, to tho famished
man, and raising himself on his hands
and knees he took up a piece ot the
broken object and examined it Closely.
This closer inspection of the contents of
the limesheH showed the .jelly to be of
the consistency ot molten glue, to
be ot & light rose color, and to be
possessed ot a rather acrid smell-.
What surprised - Jorgel'.sen was, to
notice that although at first sight the
jelly looked to be a plain uniform body,
the substance was in reality composed
ot an infinity of minute cells, like, he
thought, the roe ot fish whilst through
out its liody at retched a number ot lisa-
meuts like the softest tlos silk. The
Swede touched the gelatinous matter
with his finger, took up a small quanti
ty put it first to his nose then id his
mouth, and preferring the chances ot
succor or death by starvation to the
possibility ot death by poisoning, very
gingeily applied his tongue to the jelly.
It had by no rneans a pleasant taste:
and what Jorgensen swallowed would,
he imagined.; not have killed a cat,
Throwing the halt shed and its con
tents, aside, with an expression and
splutter cf disgust Jorgersen climbed
to his post to watch for the White
Wove and lift.
A QUEER SENSATION.
Sonic hour were pasted in thus wait
ing, when overcome by weakness he fell
into a deep sleep, from' which ho wa
awakened by a sensation which, he said,
was almost precisely like that which
he had experienced rs a boy when re
suscitated after having been pulled out
mote than half drowned from one of
his native Jjorrh. The acute tingling
sensation was once more felt, and it
seemed as though the pains of a new
life werupon him. What astonished
him so much as anything was to find
that the huitger-craviugs had entirely
gone; he telt strong and -refreshed.
At first he was inclined to be suspicious
f this release of pain and new vigor,
thinking it to be but the glow of the
spark before extinction ; but when be
found himself enabled- to walk miles
without fatigue and was troublA with
no more inconvenience from his long
fast, he became convinced that his
hunger h.d been apeased. , lit search
ing for the cause he naturally could
but think of the gelatinous matter which
lie had tasted. To imagine, however,
that the infinitesimal quantity ot.lhis
remarkable substance, it indeed he had
swallowed any at all, could have pro
dnced such astonishing results, - seemed
highly absurd The next day, alter
having wandered up and down the
bleak country and along tho desolate
shore without any symptoms ot weari
ness, he again visited the gulch . where
he had found the glutinous deposit. .
A SECOND TASTE.'
The supposed pebble . which, had
been broken in its tall lay there as , he
had left it, but the contents had altered
in condition and were now- bnt a dryj
viscid film. Jorgensen was ' shrewd
enongh to put this change dowp as due
iu the acthtt of the air, and saw that
it he wished to exer:meiit he Would
have to do so with' a fresh ly.broken
pebble-.1 Selecting one of the chalky,
looking stones, he carefully broke the
crust sud found it to contain a small
quantity of the rose-tinted jelly which
be was in search of. V ith character
istic cantioti, he again bnt touched his
tongue to the matter and then gathered
the remaining pebbles together and
placed them under a projecting ledge
for safe keeping. The results of the
second taste were equally astonishing
as those which attended the first.
Again came a deep sleep, from out of
which he was awakened by an intense
tingling in every nerve of his body.
This exquisite pain having passed,
Jorgensen lay where he had slept, as
though in a half dream, thinking idly
of his ad venture. He felt no hunger,
but rather a state cf mental and bodily
ease. The only explanation that he
could arrive at concerning the mysteri
ous food of which he had partaken was
that it must have been something pre
pared by the native Indians for susten.
ance during long journeys, 'and that he
had accidentally discovered either a
cache ot such material or a store ot it
which had beeu overlooked.
A SCKPKISED MAN.
A new surprise was awaiting him,
for when he rose to shake the sleep
from his limbs what was his astonish,
ment to find his clothes so tight upon
him' that he moved with difficulty in
them. His great sea boots seemed a
few sizes too small, and the sleeves ot
his knitted cardigan jacket were almost
up to his elbows. Ruefully contemplat
ing this shrinkage of what he had hither
to considered good material he stooped
down to pick up his ride, when he was
thunderstruck to find that it too had
shrunk. At any rate his good Henry
which, before he had gone to sleep,
reached just tip to his armpit, was now
scarcely chet high. Moreover, it
seemed as light in his hands as a feather,
Jorgensen was bewildered, and for a
moment imagined himself crazy. Then
the old Norse superstition took hold of
him and he imagined himself bewitched.
Taking hisjacknife out to cut a tew
holes in his too snugly fitting shoes he
found it to lie iu his hand like a lady's
penknife. Then he knew that the
metal and fabric had Dot d war ltd, bnt
that he himself had stretched and grown
under the influence of the wonderful
food.- His physical strength kept pace
with his increased bulk, and he amused
himself, a he confessed, by breaking off
large fragments of rock and hurling
them into the sc-a. It was whilet en.
gaged in this Cyclopean pastime that
he saw the Tl hitc Witvc bearing down
the coast and signaling with the little
bias piece she carried. Jorgensen
replied with liia rifle and then hastily
ran to where the peculiar pebbles lay,
loaded his packets w.th them and was
back on the beach in lime to direct
the boat's course to wheie he stood.
We pass over the Astonishment of
hjs shipmates at his extraordinarj'
appearance and at the story of Jorgen
sen, but quote a tew of the Captain's
words, because they gre brief and to
the point : "When Jorgensen went
on shore," said Captain Williamsj in
conversation with the writer, che was
a short, spare man, of about five feet
seven, with a bald head, a thin, straw,
colored mustache, and looked fill of
his age, which he said was forty-seven.
When he came on board he was bloated
or swollen or something so much that
he looked to be about six feet high ;
was growed so stout that he haJ burst
all his clothes ; had a new crop ot fluffy
hair over his face and head, .and had
aged about ten years. Why, sir, his
own mother wouldn't ha knowed him,
and I weren't surprised that his mates
thought "they had stinck tlie wrong
man when they see that object on the
beach." Jorgensen told his storv.
which Captain Williams at first utterly
discredited, but which lie afterwards
wrote out in full, attesting its genui-
ness by the line that
The above was as near a we could
reckileer the statement made by the said
Hans Jorgenseii before us as witnesses
EIC HARD WII.f.TAMS,
(Master of schooner White ?!"rc).
It. is from this statement that the
above narrative has been taken ; indeed,
except iu the matter of some necessary
coriections of spelling and alterations
ot expression, there is no material differ
ence between tho two. It was, in .fact,
at Captain Williams' request that his
story, has been, as he styled it, "fixed
ilup." - ; -

Mr. Ferris. Altogether it's the riimmiest
case I ever came ,ticros.'
This Hi. Ferris, the Ch plain explain
ed, was the son of the property owner
in Fngland on which he (Captain Will
iams) had been born and was' a gentle
man who had given himself up io
science and philosophy. Captain Wil
liams had already sent him some queer
odds and ends gathered iff his various
travels, and considered that a fragment
of this strange art'ele which had played
such an important pari in poor Hans
Jorgenseu's caieer would be acceptable
Mr. Ferris will doubtless be recognized
by the Chronicle readers as the cele
brated Professor Michael Ferrfs, F. It.J
S., author of "Tile First Principles ot
he Cell Theory," and one of TyuJall's
most promising disciples.
WHAT MR FERRIS II AO TtJ SAY.
The article was carefully packed and

letter, which we are permitted to
