THE STORY OF A CLIPPER.
She Sailed Like a Witch and Engaged la
More Trades Than One. , '
. A young Swede came to this oonntry
in 1851 with some money and the in
tention of bnilding a craft to be fitted
up for passengers to the World's fair in
London. , For this purpose he located
himself at Portsmouth, contracted with
shipbuilders who had shipyards at
Eliot, just opposite Portsmouth, for a
ship of about 1,000 tons, with expen
sive cabin arrangements for passengers.
The model of the ship was that of an
extreme clipper. '
When nearly completed, the projec
tor fell short of money. Masts, spars and
sails had all been contracted for and
were in a state of forwardness. The
meohanics' concluded to complete the
ship and put her in the hands of Gov
ernor Goodwin of Portsmouth for sale,
each contractor to take his pro rata of
his oon tract.
When oompleted, the ship, under
mechanics' lien, was transferred to the
governor, brought to Boston, purchased
by Sampson & Tappan, named the
Nightingale and under the command of
a Captain Dumaresque sailed for Aus
tralia with a oargo valued at $125,000.
From there she proceeded to China,
where she took the highest freight of
the season, 5 per ton for London. To
test her merits Messrs. Sampson & Tap
pan published in the London Times a
challenge to the British merchant fleet
to race from the Downs to China and
back for 10,000 a distance of nearly
80,000 miles. But no one oould be found
to aooept the challenge. She was after
ward sold to a Salem house, who sent
her to Rio Janiero, where she was sold
and sent to the ooast of Africa as a
slaver, was captured by a United States
cruiser, the slaves liberated and the
vessel sent home. She was subsequent
ly used by the government during the
rebellion, and after the olose of the war
was sold and put into , the California
trade. The Nightingale made the short
est known run from the equator to Mel
bourne 25 days. " Her whole passage
from New York was 68 days. Proceed

AN OCCURENCE THAT WAS MAR
Not Uerely Belief From an Insignia,
cant Ailment, But a Human
The newsgatherer on his daily search
for items of interest often oomes aoross
happenings of more than passing note.
It was during a recent conversation
with Mr. A. H. Cransby, the 1 well
known commercial traveler, with the
Cochran Lumber Company, that a re
porter of the Commercial learned of a
wonderful case. Mr. Cransby is well
known in Memphis and surrounding
country, and now resides at 158 Kerr
street. .: ' ..- ':
Just ten years ago," said he, my
wife noticed a small lump in her
breast. She thought nothing of it, but
it moreased in size rapidly, and soon
broke through the skin, . and com
menced to discharge. She was put
under treatment of the best physicians,
but they very soon found that they
oould do her no good, and simply pre
scribed antiseptics to keep the place
clean. Both her grandmother and
aunt, by the way, had died with can
cer, and when apprised of this fact,
the doctors told me that they would
not attempt to save her; that she was
incurable. Although the cancer had
by this time beoome deep seated, and
her health very low, I had one of the
most noted specialists of New York to
treat her. After treating her awhile,
this doctor admitted that the case was
hopeless and further treatment useless.
It is difficult to imagine how despond
ent we all became, knowing that, she
must die, and unable to give her any
relief. I had spent over five hundred
dollars with the best medical skill to
be had, and felt that there was no fur
ther hope. '
"One day I happened to read an ad
vertisement of S. S. S., recommending
this remedy for cancer, and in view of
the failure of the most eminent physi
cians in the country I confess I had lit
tle faith left in any human agency.
However, I purchased a bottle of S. S.
S., and to my delight it seemed to ben
efit her; after she had taken a couple
of bottles, the cancer began to heal,
and as astonishing as it may seem ' a
few bottles more cured her entirely.
You can probably better understand
how remarkable this cure was when I
explain that the cancer had eaten two
holes m the breast two inches deep.
These healed up entirely and although
ten years have elapsed, not a sign of
the disease has ever returned and we
are assured of the permanence of the
cure, which we at first doubted.
"I oertainly regard S. S. S. as the
most wonderful remedy in the world,
and it is truly a God-send to those
afflicted with this terrible disease. Yes,
sir," he concluded, "you may be sure
that I shall always be grateful to that
remedy, for without it my home would
now be desolate and my children
motherless. ' ' Memphis, Tenn. , Com

Died While the Doctors Quarreled.
' Here is the latest episode of Parisian
life. The cold weather of late has been
rather severe on the simian population
of the gay capital, and it was keenly
felt by Maurice, the orang-outang of
the Jardian d'Acclimatation. When
Maurice fell ill, it was decided by the
managers of the Jardin that inasmuch
as Maurice possessed . far more resem
blance to a man than to an animal, a
regular doctor should be summoned,
and accordingly the services of a physi
cian were invoked. On his arrival bow
ever, the doctor declared that, as the
patient occupied an intermediary place
between the quadrumanes and the hu
manes, its treatment should devolve
upon a veterinary surgeon, who, how
ever, hesitated . to assume the re
sponsibility on the ground that Mau
rice was . more human than beast.
While the discussion was in progress
between the two medicos the monkey
died. Boston Herald. . .-!..

FOR LITTLE FOLKS.
Ned the Trotter.
The celebrated trotter Ned is in town.
Ned does not belong to the equine fra
ternity of sprinterB, as one would sup
pose, but, on the contrary, is nothing
more nor less than a phenomenal dog
trotter, ready to trot against any other
canine living, or against any pony undei
12 hands in height. The dog is a beau
tiful English pointer, liver and white
licked, and stands 26 inches high. ' His
weight is 71 pounds when in condition
for a speed trial, and he can cover a mile
easily in three minutes.
"No price can be attached to the dog
at all," said Mr. McCue when inter
viewed last night. "I have said some
times that he'was worth $10,000, but to
tell you the truth I would not sell him
for twice that amount. He has made
more than that for me and can make
much more. Ned is just 3 years and 9
months old at present, and no dog alive
can trot with him, and not a great many
horses can stand his gait either."
' Ned has never yet been defeated in a
match. He has trotted with 72 ponies
under 12 hands in height, and also 52
bicycle riders under 15 years of age, and
won all of the contests. This is quite a
Ned pulls a pneumatic tired sulky
weighing 20 pounds. A boy weighing 60
pounds handles the ribbons, but then he
is only a "dummy," for Ned is always
given his head, and the instructions to
the youthful driver are to sit still and
mind his own business. In other words,
the dog is given full credit for all he ac
complishes. San Francisco Chronicle.
The Age of Animals. -
A butterfly lives only a few weeks, a
crow may live more than a century, and
swans are said to live sometimes over
800 years. An eminent naturalist tells
of a falcon that was 162 years old. A
white headed vulture, caught in 1706,
died in 1826 in the aviary of the palace
of Schonbrunn, near Vienna, where it
had been in captivity 118 years.
Again, parrots and ravens think noth
ing of tumbling about the world for
a hundred years or more, and some of
the sea birds and water fowl outlive
several generations of human beings. To
come down to some well known birds,
the ordinary cock lives from 20 to 25
years, and a pigeon lives for about 10.
A nightingale may live 10 years in cap
tivity and a thrush 15, but when free
they live much longer.
Of quadrupeds the elephant lives much
longer than any of his f riencUj and breth
ren. He may reach the age of 400 years.
And, you will think, he looks as if he
was made to last a long time. A camel
is old at 40, a horse or a bull at 25, a
lion and a bear at 20. As for the whale,
it disports itself in the sea for some 800
years, and no tortoise is considered to
have attained a ripe old age before it
reaches 90 years. Exchange.
A Toudb Violinist. .
Miss Leonora Jackson, the young girl
whose beautiful playing on the violin
has attracted much attention of late, is
a Chicago girl whose talent must some
day make her renowned. During her re
cent sojourn of 10 days in her native
city she so captivated the select audi
ences before which she appeared that
some of Chicago's most influential soci
ety leaders have become interested in
her. A brilliant future is predicted for
this little artist by all who have had an
opportunity to judge of her gifts. She is
still a child, with unassuming, childlike
ways. Her health is perfect, and with
her rare talent she combines a strong
character energy,, patience and deter
mination. Chicago Post. s

: -St. Nicholas,
- . - Saved by a Woman.
An incident during the disturbances in
Sicily is related by a correspondent in
Palermo. AtTerrasini, a village of about
7,000 inhabitants, the people rebelled
against the communal administration,
burning the bureaus of the taxes. A
company of bersaglieri arrived to put a
stop to the disorder, and the lieutenant
ordered his men to make ready to fire.
At that moment a woman ran up to the
lieutenant, and holding out to him a por
trait of Queen Margaret asked him to
kiss it, while at the same time the riot
ers, men and women, suddenly sank on
their knees in front of the soldiers, cry
ing out, "Kill us; we are already dying
of hunger." The lieutenant ordered the
soldiers to retire, and the riot was at an
end. -.' - ; '

. i ' A New Notion, ; t
A new notion is that of marriage cards
conveying, like their Easter and Christ
mas prototypes, the proper sentiments of
the occasion, good wishes, and the rest,
which may accompany the wedding
gift or merely arrive, per se, as an evi
dence of good will. It remains to be
seen whether brides will take kindly to
this palpable aid to the nonpresent giv
ing quest. An avalanche of these paste
boards on the wedding day,, however
artistic and proper they may be, will
hardly be a relished substitute for even
fishkniyes and sirup jugs.--"' ;",".
