i of Capt. Philip.
. A newspaper editor of Philadelphia,
who has become one of the best in
formed men. on Pennsylvania politics
since he left off going to sea, was once
an apprentice in the United States
navy. He served in the various rates as
third, second and first-class boy, or
dinary seaman and seaman apprentice,,
and was further rated long before he
reached the term of his indenture as
captain of the starboard watch of after
guard and coxswain of the captain's
gig. , These advancements were, of
course, within the limits of his ap-;
prenticeship, and he was all the while
subject to the special rules and regula
tions of the service for that condition, ,

ing on the Richmond at that time with
some dozen or more boys, who, like
himself, had long been away from theTi
schoolships, and were doing able sea
men's duty, and, of course, smoking
whenever the ship's corporal hung out
the lamp to light n pipe by, and that is
at prescribed hours, because sailors are'
aot supposed to carry matches. The
first -lieutenant of the ship was Jack
Philip, now -captain- commanding the
battleship Texas, the man hose pic
ture haa become so well known since
the war began by the cocked hat of the
full-dress uniform with which he is
photographed. He was, like many oth
er good fellows, ' a ' jump-up-in-the.
Luff, and one day after dinner he saw
an apprentice take a light for his pipe
at the lamp. "What's that, corporal of
tne guard? 'lake those pipes away
from, all the apprentices, whatever
their rate is." A moment later the
young men found themselves deprived
of their pipes and ordered to the mast,
when the first lieutenant faced them.,
"Do you not know it is a specific regula-j
tion that Apprentices are not to
smoke?" U t , :
"Whyr yea,' sir," replied "one; "but
we" are rated for men's work, we are
doing it, and we have been smokingj

ever since we leit ine scnooisn.ip. . - ' i
Well, you won t smoke any more on
board this ship. Go forward.". . ! V
Perhaps the qualities which made a
political writer out a iackie were
also those which made the jackie some
thing of a sea lawyer, and he studied
the way of getting the smoke -back.
At last he hit it off. and summoning
his fellows in council, he secured their
pledges to stand by him. Then he
went to the mast to see the first lieu
tenant. ; "Sir," he said, "we who are ap
prenticed demand school in the terms
of our indentures. It is provided in the
regulations that we shall have daily
instruction and be taught navigation.
There is a schoolmaster ' aboard, al
though he is doing duty as chief boat
swain s mate. . '" " -' '
- The officer cocked his eye at the ap
prentice, and, after : a pause, said:
"Very well, coxswain, you shall have
achool.". The ship, however, did not
rate a chief boatswain's mate, and the
man who held that was not fit for a
schoolmaster, and there was not on
board the ship- a man who knew as
much, as the apprentices, except, of
course, the officers, abef to detail them
for that duty would . be ; unpleasant
enough for them at least, and.other-wise-

Philip tried every other sort of school
master in vain, and then sent for the
sea lawyer coxswain.
- "Why do you fellows' want to go to

"Because, sir," replied the Unabashed,
"we must occupy the time we lost when
you took away our smoking."

SITUATION IN THE PHILIPPINES.
It la Very Gratlfylnc to the Official at
New York, Dec. 25 A special to
the Herald from Washington says:
Washington, officials are very much
gratified at the existing situation in
the Philippines. The insurgent army,
which dominated the northern part of
Luzon island up to November 5, when
the-Amerinan campaign began,, has
disappeared; American garrisons are
established at more important points,
promising peace in the surrounding
territory, and the general condition
has so improved that General Otis con
siders It feasible to open all ports of
northern Luzon to trade.
General Otis will now turn bis atten
tion to the rebels south of Manila, and,
it is expected, will begin active opera
tions against them in a few days.

"THE BABIES' FRIEND."
Suld by Clarke and Falk, The Dalles, Oregon.
A SOCIAL QUEEN.
'"Who would ever believe that she is the
mother of five children." These were the
words that caught the ear of the.Womui
Reporter as she moved among the throng
at a fashionable reception. Just before her
stood tne nostess, a young-looking, nand--ome
woman receiving her guests with that
air of hearty vivacious enjoyment which
all the world considers as the special pre
rogative of youth.
; There was sparkle in her eyes, a soft
clear natural color in her cheeks; she had
a firm and rounded form, and that steady
easy poise of the whole body which be
tokens strong limbs and healthy nerves.
It was the Reporter's business to be cari
ous; moreover, she was a woman; and re
ceiving gracious permission to call on the
following: day, she duly presented herself
armed with a hundred, such questions as
only a woman can ask.
Yes, I have five children" said the
hostess, with a tone of earnest happy pride;
"hope I'll have five more.. I love every
one of them. They are good children too,
and a comfort to me all the time."
''You can't understand it of course, and
my friends wonder that I keep my health
and strength and do my work; but that I
take care of myself is the reason. I never
used to be strong. I was thoughtless and
careless. After my first baby came I was
all broken down and prayed that I might
never have another, but I have learned
better and I am stronger now than I ever
was in my life. "
"Women break down because they go
without the little extra help they need to
tide them over hard places. When a wom
an expects to become a mother she ought
to be at her very best. But that is exactly
the time when most women feel weak and
sick and pserable. They grow melan
choly and anxious as the time approaches
and when it comes they have no strength
or stamina of body or mind to go through
"No wonder they suffer and nearly die
sometimes, and ate all broken down for
months or years. If they would take the
light care of themselves and strengthen
themselves in a natural way, they would
never suffer as they do; and instead of
dreading to have children they would wel-'
come them as a real blessing."
It is simply a case of a stitch in urn-
saves nine ' or rather nine hundred. A lit
tle natrai 1 reiufureement at -the time when
baby is expected will save mo-itns. perhaps
years of suffering and weakness. At such
a time i always taice ur. nerce's .Favorite
Prescription; it invariably eives me the ex
tra strength and healthy nerve-power which
a woman needs to bring her baby into the
worm sateiy ana comtortaoiy."
"It is the most wonderful thinsr in the
World to build np a woman's nervous sys
tem and strengthen the special organism
of motherhood. It gives you the recuper
ative power that a woman cannot get in
any other way. It carries you through the
nursing time beautifully; it helps you to
nourish the baby and make him hearty and
strong too. My four younger children are
the sturdiest youngsters yon ever saw. This
one' grand Favorite Prescription' has
made me the healthy, happy mother I am."
I can tell yon of a dozen women who
have had almost the same experience as
mine. I saw a letter written bv Mrs. Tennie
J. Jackson, who lived at Fergnssons Wharf,
T 1 C m- XT. 1 .
in xsic.ui vvikul o.,' vs. xacse are ner
own words: I have enjoyed better health
since taking Dr. Pierce's medicine than I
have since I have been married. I can
work hard all day and sleep well at night.
l was almost gone wnen l wrote to Doctor
Pierce three years ago. I had uterine
trouble very badly, but, thank the Lord, I
am very well now. My doctor did not
have any faith in 'patent medicines,' bnt
he says, something Has done you good.
I tried many different medicines and got
no better until I tried Dr.' Pierce's medi
cines. The first bottle gave me ease. I
have taken six bottles of ' Favorite Pre
scription ' and I feel as well as ever in my
life, and can work hard all day and do as
much walkinar as I ever did. I was nothinir
but a skeleton. I was so thin in flesh that
it hurt me to lie down." -.
I think Dr. Pierce has done more to
ward making healthy, happy women than
any other man in this country."

THE CRANE'S MEAL.
Be EaaUy Catches and KUU the Spar
- wow,' Bnt Finds It Hud to
' . . a
Court square has a new denizen, and
now the-peacocks and, the squirrels
-top every now and then to look in
wonder, at the spindle-legged crane
which stalks in solemn dignity to and
fro, says the Memphis Scimitar. This
crane, however, is not attracting
merely the attention of the other
dweller of the park, for every day or
two a'larg-e human audience watches
his performance. The crane catches
sparrows and it is the efforts he makes
to swallow his prey which cause spec
tators to gather by the score. " Th
crane' stands quietly like a statue and
waits. "The sparrows fly about fear
lessly, not even'fetartlei! by the strange
bird. They have seen rags on a stick
before and they are not afraid; oh.no!
Then one of the sparrows lights very
near the crane. The rag becomes live
ly and his beak is shot out with light
ning quickness and the sparrow caught
right by the neck.
Then come-the fun. The sparrow is
a little large to swallow. The crane
kills him, r thinking the small bird's
lively capers must be the cause of the
difficulty. Death makes the task no
easier. The sparrow still chokes the
crane. The crane tries the sparrow
head on. The small bird's wings stick
out and prevent the sparrow from go
ing down. The crane starts at the
feet; but the feathers on the prospec
tive dinner are ruffled the wrong way
and the second attempt fails. An idea
strikes his craneship. He walks to a
small tub of water and soaks the spar
row so that the feathers cling closely.
It is still an impossible task to swallow
the bird. The crane works and works,
and finally, by pounding the sparrow
almost to a pulp, at last makes a meal.
Then the audience disperses wonder
ing at the crane s marvelous digestion.
