ADMIRAL SAMPSON'S FORMIDABLE FLEET.
What You Get
A FIGHTING COMMANDER.
Dewey, the Itero of. Manila, Has Seen
. - . Hard Service.
In his slxty-ofte J'P.avs of life Admiral
George Dewey, the horo of Manila,
lias seen a great deal of red hot fight
ing, lie was born among the fcreen hills
of Vermopt and received his appolnit
ment to the Naval Academy nt the age
or 17. wncn lie graduated tn lH&a lie
rt-ent with' the steam frigate Wabash
on a cruise in Mediterranean waters.
When Fart , Sumter wae fired upon
Dewey was promoted from enelgn ho
lieutenant and assigned to the steam
sloop Mississippi, which wne to take
part In the fierce flgbthig of the West
Gulf squadron. The Mississippi was a
side wheeler of seventeeii ' guns, and
was' commanded by Oommnnder Mel
anctihon Smith. The West Gulf squad
ron went a once to the Mississippi
Itlver to, force Its way up. The "His
tory of Our Navy" thus describes the
ACTING ADMIRAL DEWEY.
sort of things the men on the Missis
sippi experienced when they preceded
Farragut up past New Orleans:
"The I'ensacola and the Mississippi
steamed slowly, with their blaclt hulls
at regular Intervals sheeting the air
with lurid fire as they replied to the
forts. Abreast of St, Philip, where the
Confederate fire was hottest, they drew
In so close that the gunners afloat and
. . .1 , -, . J V-
as they worked." ' " '!
The Mississippi was with the squad
ron again when it ran down past . New
Orleans on the way back, fair targets
for nineteen big guns at close range, :
The hardest fight that the Mississippi
ever was In was the one that ended
her. 1 The fleet was trying to run by
Port Hudson with Its powerful batter
ies. Noiie of the squadron got by. Tho
Mississippi ran aground In the fog and
smoke and .stuck , hard and fast. In
thirty minutes she was shot full , of
holes. Her crew climbed ln.ro boats on
the side oposito the forts, and, after
setting her on fire, made for the other
side of the river under a withering rifle
fire. Upon this occasion Lieut. Dewey
stuck to his guns until the last and he
did not quit the ship until all others had
left. Admiral Porte singled Mm otft
for special praise.
tn July, 1803, Dewey was on the' gun
boats that engaged the Confederates
below DonaJdsonville, tn 1804 be was
attached to the North Atlantic block
ading squadron, otisl-gncd to 4e eteani
guntnoat Agawaon. "The Agawain was

rrrtsslo nas lieutenant oomrniandcr on
March 3, 18C5, and served for two years
on Che European squadron, first on. the
steamer Kearsarge and then on the
f rlgiate Colorado, the flagship. In 1808
be was assigned to duty a ttie Naval
Academy. In 1870 be received his firs
command, thait' of, bo Narragansett,
wWch was employed on special eervtce
unitfl 1875. . "
The Pacific survey of 1872-75 was In
trusted to him. After two years as
lighthouse inspector and five as secre-
tary of the Lighthouse Board he was
put In command of the Juniata on the
Asiatic squadron In 1882. In Septem
ber, 1884, he was promoted to be a cap
tain and placed la command of the
Dolphin, then brand now, and erne of
the four vessels to w-hlcib the name
"white squadron" was first given. From
1885 to 1888 he was the commander of
the reusacola, the flagship of the Eu
ropean squadron, - In 1888 his energy
and ability to complete matters of de
tail was recognized by making his chief
of the bureau of equipment and recruit
ing, which carried wtth tt the rank of
commodore. , '. 1 .. . v .
In May, 1803, he took another turn on
duty as a member of tflre Lighthouse
Board. He was made an actual com
modore on Feb. 20, 1800, and was at
about that time put at the head of the
Important Board of Inspection and Sur
vey. He was transferred to the com
mand of the Asiatic squadron Jan. 1,

THE ORIGIN OF POBCELAtK.
Invented by the Chinese? Perfected bj
Japanese, Named by Portuguese.
Frank II. Vlzetelly, to "A Ohat Abou
China" In the Woman's Home Com
panion, writes lnterstlngly of the Intro
duction of fine porcelain into Europe':
"The word porcelain, as applied to
china pottery, originated In Japan dur
ing the thirteenth centnry. The Chi
nese, the pioneers hi tbe art of porco
lafn manufacture, began to make It
nearly two centuries before tho Chris
tian era, and so careful were they to
guard the secret of the art that nearly
fifteen centuries lapsed before tbolr
neighbors, tbe Japanese, got any to
kttng of h. But once tn their posses
sion, the. wily Japanese lost no time to
profit by their knowledge. Tbe few
Intrepid navigators" of those days
brought samples of both Chinese and
Japanese ware to Europe, btrt no until
early In the sixteenth centnry did a
trade In tt of any extent take place.
Among the early importers were Pcrtti
gueso traders who had settled on tbe
Japanese coast, and to them, It ts claim
ed, wo owe the word porcelain, derived
from the Portuguese parceUana, or
sucking pig. When the Portuguese
traders first saw pieces of , Japanese
ware they were struck with Its translu
cence, which somewhat resembled that
of tho cowry shell. The cowry shell,
In turn, resembled In shape a small
sucking pig, or porcellana; hence OUr
'porcelain.' . ; .
Development of tho Transvaal.
In 1802 the main trunk line from
Capo Town was pushed forward from
its then northern terminus Jqj Johannes
burg. The distance trow -Cape Town
to Johannesburg by rail Is 1,013 miles".
In 1804 the road was completed from
Delagoa Bay, a port hi Portuguese ter
ritory on the southeast coast of Africa,
to Johannesburg a distance' of 877
mllea Tho third road reached Johan
nesburg a year Hater, from Durban, a
port to tho British colony of Natal, dis
tant 483 miles. ' . '-
From 23,000 ounces of gold !a 1887,
the annual output bos risen to 3,000,000
ounces to 1807, giving the Transvaal
the second place fn the world's gold
production. There Is no doubt that tho
present output of the country will rap
Idly Increase; and probably . wtthln a
few years, notwWhstandlng the Increas
ed output of other countries, tho
Transvaal will rank first as a gold pro
ducer. , "
Tho town of Johannesburg may bo
taken as a good Index of 'the wonder
ful expansion of tho gold-mining indus
try of ttho district From a few huts tn
1880, It has developed Into a town un
excelled, If Indeed equaled, In the im
posing character of Its buildings by
any of the enterprising mining towns in
Western America. Indeed, Johannes
burg has but little of tbe aspect of an
American mining camp, tn Its general
appearance tt reminds an American
more of -Spokane or Salt Lake City.

Barllest Known Cuban. -
Thesft facts are from an old Scotch
parper published in 1848:
"The inhabitants of the larger
islands of the West Indies, Bt. Do
mingo, Cuba and Porto Rico were in
dolent but mild in disposition, fond of
dancing and other games, governed by
kings called caciques. They had an
established priesthood, believed in the
existence of a deity and a future etate
of rewards and punishments. These
simple people showed great kindness
to Columbus and hla companions while
visiting their islands, and observing
the Spaniards' love for gold gavs them
all they possessed.
"A remarkable speech has been pre
served which an old man, a native of
Cuba addressed to Columbus when
presenting him with a basket of fruit.
The speech shows the quiet disposition
of the people and their profound vener
ation for their white visitors."
