Dm MOtNJESl ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, ATJGtTST10, OLD IfiONSlBM HISTORV OF ONE OF THE OLD SHIPS IN f«6 AMERICAN NAVY. t>i*at*ctled (n * Modern Nary Yard, She t* the Object *f Profound Veneration «Wi Ux) P«rt »f Patriotic People of To- Are' Proad of Her. JNbfc laany people may know that the old frigate Constitution, so renowned in our a«nala, is still included among the vessels of the navy. She is dismantled. aa might be expected at her age, and is kept In that condition at Portsmouth, N. H. She is a craft of 2.SOO tons displacement, and now carries no battery in place of the forty-four guns of the days of her glory. It was the Constitution that, after the inauspicious opening on land of our war with Great Britain, eighty years ago, led off a series of splendid victories on the sea. The honor of the first capture of a British war vessel undoubtedly belongs to the Essex, Captain David Porter, whose defeat of the Alert occurred six days before the Constitution destroyed the Guerriere. But the Essex carried thirty-two 33- pounders and the Alert only twenty 18- ponnders, so that very soon after opening fire the crew of the little British craft, which, having captured one of our transports had made up to the Essex, taking her to be a merchantman, were compelled to quit their guns and within eight minutes to strike their flag. This conquest, though gratifying, was inevitable, whereas that of the Constipation was gained over a craft nearer her own size and strength. But while yielding the laurels of priority to the gallant Essex on this score, the Constitution, under Captain Isaac Hull, can claim them again for success in a trial of seamanship between herself and a British squadron. Till then affairs were looking gloomy for ns at sea as well as on bind. The British frigate Belvidere, while convoying a fleet of merchantmen, had escaped from a whole squadron of our warships, whereas our Nautilus had struck to an English squadron, being the first warship captured on either side. Under these untoward circumstances the Constitution, returning from Europe, fell in with a British squadron led by the Africa, a 64-gun ship. During four days she was chased by this squadron. Through calm and through breeze the flight and pursuit went on. At one time she had beats out towing her; at another her crew were hauling upon a kedge anchor that had been carried out and dropped a long distance ahead. On the fourth day the longed for wind came, and with every sail set the Constitution drew away from her pursuers, the scene when five frigates were standing on the same tack and the Constitution was showing her heels to her enemies being often recounted eighty years ago. Some of the historians describe this as the first of our triumphs on the sea in that war. But in our time, of course, the fame of the Constitution is more familiarly associated with her capture of the Guerriere. It was on Aug. 19, 1812, that the two vessels met, both eager for a fight. The scene was off the coast of Massachusetts. The British craft, commanded by the gallant Dacres, was first to open fire, but Hull maneuvered his vessel into the right position before he replied. The enemy's inizzenmast soon went by the board, followed by her mainmast. When she struck she was, in fact, so completely used up that she could not be taken into port and had to be blown up. The Constitution was superior in tonnage and complement, carried more guns and threw a much heavier weight of metal in her broadsides; still the vessels were near enough matched for the victory to produce a tremendous impression on both sides of the ocean. Alison describes the "shock of this unwonted naval disaster" in England, where the \belief that Britannia ruled the waves •was so profound that the American navy had seemed to be a mere mouthful for her. That same year the Constitution, under Bainbridge, gained another great victory over the Java, off the coast of Brazil. The Java, like her predecessor, was a 88-gon ship, and in the battle she lost foremast and mizzenmast, besides a part of her bowsprit; while, to complete the parallel, like the Guerriere, she was BO wrecked in the fight that she had to be blown np, It was a great exhibition of good acamaofihip and superior gunnery on the part of the American vessel; for, as Cooper says, "the Java had been literally picked to pieces by shot, spar following spar until she had not one left." Her loss in killed and wounded was very heavy. Finally, in 1815, under command of Commodore Stewart, the famous old ship made a double capture of the British frigate Cyane and sloop Levant. Old Ironsides, as she had come to be called daring the war, was launched at Boston in 1707; and who knows but when the hundredth anniversary of that event comes around she may again be put into commission, so as to receive centennial honors?— New York Sun.

The little electric motor and the swiftly revolving fan are familiar objects, and many a heated brow has been cooled by their combination. But the electric fan has recently found its way into a strange place, none other than the turrets of the powerful iron monitor Mion- tonomoh, where the company has placed four of its perfected fan outfits. These are not, as might be supposed, to cool off the gunners, but to blow away the smoke from, the guns. This certainly is a novel use for the electrig fan,— Electricity. It's What Saved Her Life.
