Da*h of the “W. H. Webb.”
New York Sun.
Our battleship "'Mississippi” re
turned safely to New Orleans after
her memorable procession to Natchez,
none the worse for a journey that gave
great happiness to thousands of people
by the way. it appears that Capt. Fre
mont is skilled in the use of stern an
chors and other devices for turning a
big ship around in a comparatively nar
row channel. The rest was easy. Ev
erybody knows that at this stage of
the river there is an abundance of wa
ter as high as Natchez, and indeed
much higher up, and no one ever sup
posed there would be any difficulty, ex
cept in turning a 400-foot ship around
in a 600-foot channel, with the current
running at about three and a half miles
an hour. That difficulty has been thor
oughly.eomjuered and the ship is now
as safe as she would be in mid-ocean.
It is another thing and a very differ
ent thing to say that never before was
such time made over that part of tne
Mississippi river. Quite a number of
the old sea dogs who command or offi
cered warships on the Mississippi river
during 1862, 1 Stiff, 1864 and 1865—espe
cially those who served with the vari
ous squadrons stationed between fiayou
Sara and New Orleans during the
spring of 1865 will wag their gray
heads over this proposition and proceed
to the story of the Confederate vessel,
“W. H. Webb,” which one May night
ran out of lied river, just below Nat
chez, and mdae a dash for the open sea
by way of New Orleans, something
more than 200 miles uwav. That was
forty-four years ago-before the days
of t!ie ConC.ructioi^Bureau and tur
bines .,d wonderful ships with records
op paper, and all the rest of it. This
fugbnat, however, had been turned out
of the yards of W. H. Webb, of New
York, one of the greatest shipbuilders
of his day. She was of comparatively
light draught, of splendid model and
extraordinary power, and she had been
converted to the uses of the Confeder
acy by a former United States naval
officer named Heed, a man of genius
and desperation. It was this boat that
on a May night- we think in 1865—
slipped out of Red river and started
down the Mississippi on her crazy voy
age, officered and equipped to perfec
tion, and manned by a crew as reckless
as ever signed to Raleigh, Hawkins.
Kidd or Lafitte. It was long after mid
night when the “Webb” crept out of
Red river and headed for New Orleans.
Armed vessels of the United States
blocked her way at every turn. The
river was high, her draught was light,
and away she sped through the dark
ness like a ghost. The survivors of that
mad flight were wont to tell that they
passed New Orleans in less than nine
hours. A shot through her steam pipe
ended all a few miles below the city,
and she was run ashore and the crew
escaped into the swamps. Surviving
members of the crew and the officers
of the Federal ships who still live will
tell you that the dash for liberty of
the ”W. H. Webb” was one of the
most astounding exhibitions of speed
within their experience.
Of course, the circumstances are
widely different. Capt. Fremont, com
manding a modem battleship, under
no urgency for haste, hut under every
obligation of caution and deliberation,
took the "Mississippi” down at the
rate of fourteen knots an hour; hut
will any one with a memory that cov
ers forty-live years declare that the
performance is equalled in the histo
ry of the river?
It will not do to exclude the "Webb”
from estimates of speed upon the Mis

Mrs. Leila Smith Bowen, daughter
of William A. and Frances Penn Smith,

C, Bowen, Jan, 2, 1878, and left her
earthly home for the "House not made

Proper School Age.
The proper age to begin education is
wholly misunderstood. Of course a
child begins to learn the minute it
takes its first breath, and in its first
three years it probably learns more
than in any other subsequent three of
its existence, but it undertsands little
of the phenomena it perceives. Until
it is 9 or 10 years of age its whole pur
pose in life is learning its environ-

selfish hospitality, a desire to help the
sick and sorrowing -cheering them by
her visits and any little delicacy that
kind thoughtfulness could suggest. She
rarely ever visited the sick empty-
handed, and during the long weeks she
lay “cheek to cheek with pain,” she,
who had so gladly ministered to others,
received the untiring devotion of
friends, relatives and family. Such de
voted attention is beautiful, and we
realize that unselfish devotion to others
is worth while, and is rewarded not
only here, hut in the world to come.

If there is one man or woman who
deserves the good opinion of all, it is
the one who pays his debts: and if
there is another, it is the one who is on

The new school teacher had
faith that people will meet their obliga
tions. Some people say that a man who
won't pay his debts will steal. Per
haps this is not exactly true, but the
non-debt-payer certainly does an injus
tice to those with whom he deals.
Close behind him in the class of un
desirable citizens comes the person
who makes promises he never expects
. to keep, engagements that he does not
intend to fill. A minor member of this
crew is the man or woman who is al
ways late. Many of us have wasted
valuable hours that we could not count
without an adding machine, waiting
for people who have no intention of
keeping their appointments.

The most important part of the human system is the blood. Every mus-
cle, nerve, tissue, bone and sinew is dependent on this vital fluid for nour
ishment and strength necessary to maintain them in health and enable each
to perform the different duties nature requires. Even the heart, the verv
“engine ”of life, receives its vigor and motive power from the blood. Since
so much is dependent on this vital fluid it can very readily be seen liow
necessary it is to have it pure and uncontaminated if we would enjoy the
blessing of good health. Bad blood is responsible for most of the ailments
of mankind ; when from any cause it becomes infected with impurities”
humors or poisons, disease in some form is sure to follow. Muddy, sallow-
complexions, eruptions, pimples, etc., show that the blood is infected with
unhealthy humors which have changed it from a pure, fresh stream to a
sour, acrid fluid, which forces out its impurities through the pores and
glands of the skin. A very common evidence of bad blood is sores or ulcers,
which break out on the flesh, often
from a very insignificant bruise or
even scatch or abrasion. If the blood
was pure and health}' the place would
heal at once, but being loaded with
impurities, which are discharged into
the wound, irritation and inflamma
tion are set up and the sore continues.
Bad blood is also responsible for
Anaemia, Boils, Malaria, etc.: the
weak, polluted circulation cannot fur
nish the nourishment and strength
required to sustain the body, and a
general run-down condition of health
results. S. S. S. is nature's blood
purifier and tonic; made entirely of
healing, cleansing roots and herbs.
It goes down into the circulation and removes every particle of impurity,
humor or poison that may be there, restores lost vitality, and steadily tones
up the entire system. It adds to the blood the healthful properties it is in
need of, and in every way assists in the cure of disease. S. S. S. neutral
izes any excess of acid in the blood, making it fresh and pure, and perma
nently cures Eczema, Acne, Tetter, and all other skin diseases and eruptions.
S. S. S. cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Malaria, and all
other diseases or disordtrs arising from bad blood. Book on the blood and
