Cost of Long Distance Towing.
It is only a few years ago that ship
ping men heard with wonder the story
of the first long tow of a thousand miles.
How eagerly it was discussed. What
tame reading it makes now! For a little
tug to drag a heavy load that distance
now is as easy as the journey of an "LT
train from the Battery to Harlem.
Within the last few months oceangoing
tugs have towed big craft that had come
to grief in the Spanish main all the way
to this port for repairs. The hauling
operation became necessary because of
the absence of a suitable marine "doc
tor" or repairing facilities at the place
where the vessels were damaged. ' Re
pairs are expensive in the tropics, and
in a number of cases a good round sum
was saved even after a long tow to this
The champion long distance tow per
haps is now jn progress. Two months
ago an immense steam tug left the Mer
sey, bound to Rio Janeiro, to bring back
to England a large iron bark that had
been seriously damaged in a storm near
the equator. This tug has started back
with her charge, and it is a forogono con
elusion that she will reach the Clvde
without any mishap.
Owners decline to give any informa
tion concerning the cost of a long dis
tance tow, but one like that from Rio to
England must be enormous. Here is a
trip of at least five months, over a dis
tance of 7,000 miles. At the very Ieast-
2,000 tons of bunker coal must be used.
There you have $7,000 at one slap. Pro
visions will cost $3,000 more. That
makes $10,000. Put the wages of the
crew at $3,000 more. That makes $13,-
000. Then iiguro incidentals at -l,000,
and the landsman may understand what
an expense is attached to a job of that
kind. A total of $14,000 spent before a
single penny is paid for repairs. These
figures are from the tugboat owner's
standpoint aad do not directly show the
cost of tho tow to the charterer. The
owner of tho steam tug has to live like
other people, and his profit for the trip
will be all the way from $3,000 to $4,000.
That swells the amount to $17,000 or
more. New ork Mail and Express.

Smokeless Powder and Gan Cotton.
One of the most interesting and singu
lar features developed by the new navy
is the matter of explosives.
The most important advance made in
this general lino in 1891 was the procur
ing of a smokeless powder. This was
developed by Professor Monroe, of the
Naval Torpedo station, and has surpass
ed the soniowbat dubious expectations
of it. It has been successfully used in
the simpler and lighter guns and also in
the complicated 4-inch rapid fire guns.
With charges of only one-half the weight
of the old powder, it has fired projectiles
nearly 200 feet a second faster than the
shots of tho old powders traveled. One
beauty of it is the fact that it is not in
jured by water.
Gun cotton is to bo extensively used
on the new vessels. The high importance
of this material and the certainty that
the limited facilities for its production
would be a source of embarrassment in
case of war. led the naval department
last year to offer an order for 50,000
pounds of gun cotton to the Duponts, of
Wilmington, Del., manufacturers of
naval explosives, on the condition of the
establishment of a complete plant for the
manufacture of gun cotton in large
quantities. D. D, Bid well In New York
A Little Child's Influence.
Bernard J. Schmitz, a wealthy farmei
of Atchison county, Kan., went to Ger
many last November to visit his old
home, and was arrested for deserting the
German army thirty years before. The
matter was placed in the hands of the
United States minister in Germany, but
all efforts to secure Schmitz's release ap
peared fruitless. Schmitz's eleven-year-old
daughter, however, wrote a letter to
the emperor of Germany from her home
in this country, setting forth in a child
like manner the facts in the case and ask
ing for her father's release on his birth
day, which came on the 4th of last month.
The letter reached the emperor on the
27th, and he was so touched that he is
sued a pardon for Schmitz, who is now on
his way home. Cor. New York World.

Dancing Killed Him at Seventy-nine.
James McCarty, of Gaskill township,
one of the most unique characters of
Jefferson county, -and perhaps of the
state, died Friday, aged seventy-nine
years. His death was caused by over
heating himself dancing in the open air,
for old as he was McCarty could still
keep step to a tune in a very lively fash
ion. He would often play the violin and
dance to the music for half an hour at a
time, greatly to the amusement of the
onlookers. For years his occupation has
been hunting. TJp to the time of his last
illness he was remarkably active.
The elevator in one of the big news
paper offices was filled with men. One
woman, fashionably dressed, was a pas
senger. Next her stood a hunchback
an aged man, neatly dressed and shrink
ing as far aaaossible out of notice. The
woman looked at him with a thoughtful
air as if weighing vast possibilities. Sud
denly she leaned over and with the tip
of her white gloved finger daintily
touched the hump of her neighbor.
"What was that for?' one man asked
another in an undertone. . "Don't you
know? For luck," was the answer.
"Touch a hunchback and bring good
fortune, is one of woman's pet nperstt-
ttons." -ffew York World.

A Queer Creature Dead
Mason Evans, the much paragraphed
"wild man" of Monroe county, is dead.
The fatal grip took him off. Evans had
been a great curiosity in this section for
more than forty years, during which
time he had roamed in the woods, apart
from the comforts of civilization, sub
sisting on roots and herbs dug from the
earth, with an occasional fowl surrepti
tiously taken from some convenient
barnyard. He was captured several
times but always managed to escape.
Seven or eight years ago he was captured
by some fearless fellow with an enter
prising turn of mind for the purpose of
entering him in a dime museum as the
"Wild man of Borneo."
When taken his body was as hairy as
that of a bear and covered with filth
and vermin. His eye gleamed like the
eye of a maniac and he had almost lost
the power of speech. For twenty years
he lived in a cave of the Chilhowce
mountains, and was never known to
have spoken a word during that time.
He lived in a state of nudity, and was
fond of raw meat.
Those who know his history say that
he was bora in Monroe county, near
Hiwassee college, in 1827 or thereabout.
He was of a good family and received a
splendid education. At about twenty
years of ago he was engaged in teaching
school, and in the meantime fell in love
with a handsome young lady of his
neighborhood. She received his atten
tions with apparent favor. One .night
he called and asked her to become his
wife. She said "No." He went out into
the darkness and it was many years' be
fore he was seen again, and then he tied
from his fellow men like a frightened
deer. Cor. Chattanooga Times.
