Fof the reason that the lease on the Store room we now occupy expires soon, and the fact that we are unable to keep up stock
at the Low prices established by us owing to the scarcity of bankrupt stocks in the country, we have decided to sacrifice

AN UNLUCKY SHIP.
Achieve f Graadeat
In NaT .1 Hlatorr.
Tbc Bouhouune Richard was an un
lucky ship. Paul Jones himself on
taking com niiuul of lier at Lorlent,
France, wrote n inoxt doleful letter
about her to one of his aristocratic
patronesses iu Paris. She was "a
wornout old lndluuiau," and "her fore
castle Is a babel." "Fourteen dif
ferent liiiiKiiuges are spoken lu my
forecastle," said Jones, dismayed at
the appearance of his motley crew.
Two days out at sea the Bonhonime
Richard was fouled by her consort, the
Alliance, and had her jib boom and
foretopmast carried away. Jones then
pal l ack to Lorient, perfectly con
vinced of the unlueklmess of his ship.
But through that accident he found
114 American seamen who had Just
been released from English prisons
by exchange. Among them was Rich
ard Dale, whom Jones at once appoint
ed first lieutenant. These all volun
teered Into the Richard, Jones prompt
ly discharging enough of his polyglots
to make way for them. Prior to that
he had only about forty Americans.
This addition made 154 fighting Yan
kee seamen, and they were the jnen
who made the Serapls sick a few
weeks later off the east coast of Eng
land. Thus It happened that the grandest
exploit in naval history was achieved
by an unlucky ship, and she obtained
the means of achieving it through a
The Mont Perfect Method la AIo the
Telephone poles nearly always decay
at or Just below the ground line. The
upper portion of the pole, permanently
In the air, rapidly drying after rain, Is
practically always dry and Is rarely
found decayed. The butt of the pole,
deeply burled In the ground, is In a
permanently damp condition, but oxy
gen being excluded It Is seldom badly
affected. Close to the ground line the
soil retains the moisture and keeps the
wood constantly damp where It Is ex
posed to the air and to the heat of the
sun, which Is Just what Its little vege
table enemies like, but if tho albumen
In the wood can lie rendered unfit for
food the wcxxl tissues offer practically
no support to fungi. Timber preserva
tion amounts, then, to poisoning the
food supply of the destructive agencies
Preservation of timber Is attempted ;
in three ways by seasoning, either
natural or artificial; by outward me
chanical means, such as charring In fire
or the applications of antiseptics on the
surface of the stick, and by Impreg
nating the wood with antiseptics. Of
these the last is by far the most Im
portant. The most perfect method
which Is also the most expensive Is

THUNDERS OF OLD LONDON
Tao Moat Kamooa Storaa of taa La at
Caatarr Wll la 1S4.
The most notable thunderstorms on
record In London have generally oc
curred In the month of August That
which made the greatest Impression on
contemporary observers during the
nineteenth century happened on the
1st of the month as long ago as the
year 1846, and remarkable accounts of
Its ravages may be found In the Jour
nals of the day. A thunderstorm Is not
good subject for a picture, but there
appeared In one of the Illustrated pa
pers a view of "London during the
storm from Blackheatb." which,
whether a work of pure Imagination or
actually drawn from nature, was ex
ceedingly realistic and impressive. The
special feature of the storm was the
hall with which It was accompanied,
though the thermometer stood at 83
degrees In the shade. The panes of
glass which were broken by the icy
shower were to be counted by hun
dreds of millions, and so great was the
damage Inflicted upon the florists and
nurserymen that a month or two after
ward a charity fete was held at the
Old Surrey zoological gardens for their
relief. It is Impossible, we are told, to
Imagine the aspect which the windows
In London streets presented before the
glaziers, whose services were for a
long time at a premium, had repaired
the destruction. It is a fact, Indeed,
anomalous though It appears, that his
toric hailstorms have usually coincided
with periods of great heat, and, what
ever may be the precise relations of
heat and electricity, a heavy fall of
ball Is seldom noted except &s the ad
junct of a thunderstorm. London

Nerrous persons sometimes leap in
their sleep a foot or more In the air,
