"Uliml Tern" Pcrishtd in the Flood.
It te inore tlinn. probable Hint we
have seen and beard "Blind Tom,"
the fsinous negro pianist, for the
lust time.
His body nnd that of his niaua;jcr,
is believed to bo among the thous
ands of unidentified dead in the 111
fuled valley of Johnstown, and,
being strangers, and moreover oue
of them a colored man, It is likely
that ifi their bodle? were recovered
they were burled with the rest of
the nameless dead.
He plajed in the Bijou theatre,
Pittsburg, Thursday ni&Ut. Friday
morning ho. went to Johnstown,
where he was billed to appear, ac
companied by his manager. That
evonins the flood came, and, "Blind
Tom" and his manager have not
been heard from since.
"Jjlind Tom" w.s born of slave
patents in Columbus G,., May2;,
18 o. lie wps bl'udfiom bill h, and
never saw a note of mus'c.
W en he was four ye.ira old his
master brought a piano tD tho hou-e.
One evening they heard the I'.itle
negro child ploying n piece on the
piano which he had heard theui
play. He would frequently come
In from vaude1h13 in the fields and
play wild and wlerd music of
his own improvisaiio.i.
It is said that Lc carrip'1. 5,000
piece3 of music in his memovy, nud
could playnny piec:, however e'al
orate, afte heating it once.
He couM simultaneously play one
air on ', i-e p!ano with his right band,
auother with his left, and sing a
third. He used to applaud himself
when he finished playing.
"Blind Tom" was a true colored
man in being fond of watermelons.
He wodld play tho most difficult
music an hour for a wateiinelou,
nnd would eat it with tho ,ier.test
voracity.
Steamers Sail Wrong End First.
One of the striking theories ad
vanced by model n naval archil cts
and engineers is that the modem
steamship is sailed wrong end for
ward. Astonishing as this proposi
tion will be to passengers who have
not made a study of naval architec
ture, tho fact Is that the theory has
been in course of demonstration in
n :mal( way for some months back.
According to tho mo-it advanced.
thinkers among naval architects,-
the coining steamer will have one
propeller forward and another aft.
If tlie ships weio to have but one
screw it ought to be placed foiward.
Although ihc ship ov ners of'Great
Britain are noted for their conser
vatism, tho new theory has been put
in practice there, not only in ferry
boats, but lit other craft as we'l,
notably tugs.
The pction of the two wheels Is
this: Tho forward wheel screws
itself into the solid water ahead of
the boat and throws aft what it
bites out. This- action must draw
the boat ahead. The water that is
thrown aft will, of course, strike
against tho bow of the boat,
and have some Blight affect in
counteracting tho dtawing of the
Bcrew. Tho curientr flows aft and
there meets the stern screw, which
( is at tho same time pushing tho boat
'ahead. By pumping, so to speak,
the water to the stern screw there
will be less sag to the stern of the
boat than there is now, and corres
ponding increase of power and
efficiency.
Proposals in Boston.
Mr. Beacon Street (ostou) I
presume," Miss Temout, vou are
cognizant of theconlinuation of the
sympojluina pn the interrogatory,
"Is Mnrrla'ge a Failure?" and I beg
the privilege of testing the question
with vou. Miss Tremont Since
tho only way to understaudingly
embark lu the discussion Is by prac
tical experiment, I will relinquish
ray individual freedom and gene
alogical cognomen to immolate my
identity on the altar of nietaphvsl
cal Investigation.
MississippPArguuienls.
"Send mo," wrote tho Missibsippi
hardware merchant, "one 'Argu
ment " Against Negro Suffrage,'
lCmo., with 100 tracts on the same
subject." And the jobber filled thp
order by sending him a "Winchester
rifle and.100 rounds of ammunition.
A WOMAN'S WAY.
A St-lHnj BuslnenPropotllfcn.
When Sir. Fowler, of SK Ellis street, stop
ped In it alcadlngclty druggist's to ink what
effect "Tho California Kenedy." Joy's Vege
table BanaparlUa, rroulrt have lu cases of
dyspepsia and sick headaches she was assur
ed It wouldjellevo both. Ehe was so Incred
ulous that 'tho druggist pave her a bottle,
not to be paid for unless (t effected a cure.
The following Is the convincing conclusion.
Ean Francisco, February 8, V&&.
Dub 6:: Notwithstanding my ralsgiv
lngs, Joy's Vegetable Sarsapartlla did all that
you promised. I bad tried so tnany prescrip
tions that I had como to bcllcte nothing
would relieve my dyspepsia and sick head
aches, but I bare not had a return of cither
since. I bellere I am permanently cured.
You hare my permission to make this public,
(or a remedy that will cure dyspepsia and
prevent sick headache should be generally
known. Respectfully,
