THfl UPRtt . )S ALGONA, IOWA, KINO PATRICK THfc MUSI. I One NOTE3 JAPAN. un h gallur Who Jlncnmo an Orirtttiil lUifAntnt*. Twenty years a#o Patrick O'Koefffl Was a comparatively poor man, making hifl living as a sailor on small vessels coasting between Savannah and neighboring ports. To-day he IB a king. He is the owner and absolute ruler of the island of Nyph, in the Australian group* of tho Pacific, almost in the heart of the tropics. He would probably bo still n resident of Savannah and a poor man, but for two tragedies in which he figured as one of tho principals. Jn 180*, as tho story IB told by an old-timor, he WHS mate of tho schoo'ner Annie Sims, which plied between this city and Uarlcn. On the schooner was ayonng Irirth sailor named Sullivan. lie and O'KeelTo were apparently good friends. While near Darton loading lumber the mate was building n cabin on tho schooner and ho asked Sullivan what ho thought of It. The sailor mado a jolting reply, which angered O'Keeffe and a light resulted. Sullivan got the best of it and O'Kootfo Went to his quarters, and, securing a pistol, reutrnod and bogan firing at •tho sailor. Tho latter dodged behind tho now cabin novoral Union, and finally got up and rumarkod to O'KeolTo that ho couldn't shoot anybody. Uut ho Was niiHtalcun, for tho next bullet struck him and ho died in a short while. Tho inalo was brought lo Savannah, and after a long confinement 'in jail, was tried and acquitted In tho United Status Court Afterward, while an olllcor of a small steamer/, ho had trouble with ono of tho deolc hands and ran him Into tho rlvnr, whore he •Was drowned. These troubles stiomod to worry O'KoolTo, and ho determined to leave •tho "states'* as ho termed it. Jn 1871 ho sailed away from Savannah as second mato of an American vessel bound for Liverpool, and when ho bade his friends good-by on tho wharf ''ho told thorn that ho would never ro- turu to Savannah unices ho canio in his own ship. From Liverpool ho shipped lo tho East Indies, and from there to Hong Kong. Ho hud savod a little money '"by this time, and bogan a small fruit and lumber business butwooii tho 1'a- •ciflo islands and Hong Kong. Ilo was successful, and after a few years so- '.curod tho island of Nyph from the natives by a trade of HOITIO sort. Tho island abounds In toakwood, and fruit, and O'KoolTo bought a schooner and brig and started businos.-i on a big scale. Ills vessels run to Hong Kong and he soon built up an ex tensive trade, which has sti-adlly Incronsod until now ho is reckoned aw a very wealthy man. O'Keoffe loft behind him when ho sailed away from Savannah a wife and a baby daughter, who is now a young woman. For years noiihlng was hoard of his whereabouts. After ho bogan to prosper in his far-away homo, how- over, he wrote a letter- and sent money to his wife. Ho tried to persuade her and his daughter to go to him, but they wouldn't do it. Regularly twice a year since ho sends remittances for their support and keeps up a correspondence with thorn. Mrs. O'KoolYo and 'daughter llvo on Liberty stroot, near East Broad, ' says tho Savannah Morning News, and have an oil painting of tho brig of tho "King of Nyph" hanging in their parlor. Capt. Keano of tho American brig I. W. Parker, which baa boon horo loading lumber for Pornambuco, told a reporter that he saw O'KooJfo In Hong Kong several months ago. Ho wiis boarding at tho finest hotel in- tho oily, and was living in tho height of olo- ganoe, having a fine driving turnout and every luxury which money could obtain. Ho spends a groat portion of his time In Hong Kong, whuro ho deposits his money, and is favorably known to all residents of that city. He said he intended coming' to Auiur- ioa to attend tho World's Fair. Beside being a trader of wealth and position O'Kooll'o is tho ruler of a large colony, made up mostly of Malays who swear by him. This story will be a revolution to many of Savannah's old residents, who had long forgotten "Capt." Pat O'KoolTo and thought him dead. SQUARING MATTERS UP. Tho Sour" WUB In Fiivur of Woiimii llo- t'ore Sim 1-o.rt 111 n Cur. A few evenings ago 1 was going up on the Sixth avonuo "L" road, says a Now York Record reporter, when a young man and woman entered, each carrying umbrellas and apparently well acquainted with ouch other. After tiding a few bl- •**.'ho suddenly said: "I BOO you have a now umbrella; where did you buy itP" '•Oh," sho replied, "1 did not buy it, it was presented to mo," and a look of satisfaction appeared on her countenance. "Just what I thought," he replied; "I didn't imagine for a moment you would buy such a cheap umbrella." ! At this sho was deeply hurt and waited for her chance to even matters. Kliu gazed at his umbrella and remarked : "I see you have a now umbrella, whore did you buy ItP" "I did not buy it." ho replied; "like .you, I got it as a present." "Just what I thought;" sho said; "1 did not suppose you would buy such au expensive umbrella," and she continued her journoy, reading tho advertising signs and rejoicing that poor, weak woman ' had onco more triumphed. A Orout Truth. At a time of great drought a schoolmaster, accompanied by his pupils, went out to pray for rain. Ilo was met by au inquisitive follow, who • naked where they were going. "We are going to pray for rain, " tho teaoh- .;er replied: "God will hoar tho prayers ot lauooent children. " • if that were so," answered the man, "there would be no teachers alive." — Argonaut fjfe In (in I N«»r ToScoliamu— Unoli* !ni4 Art .It ih«l MUidt)'* ..inp r<<, There ard Items o? interest in every (lumber of the Japanese Ga/.etto, published In Yokohama, and some are to bo found in a copy that has recently come to America. On the front page there Is an advertisement in which Hung Sing, who is probably a Chinaman, announces to Yokohama that he has just "established himself as a portrait painter, and keeps a large stock of cigars at lowest prices." The Yokohama and Kobe Association of Guides gives notice that its members belong to the Katyusha and are at the service of tourUts. There are many steamers advertised to run from Yokohama to Chinese and other ports. In a lire at Anjor sixty houses of planks nnd bamboo with atap roofs wore burned and "became a seething tnagfl." When Count Itapukl arrived in Shlnjo ho had a triumphal reception and llfly men in armor welcomed him by shouting "Jiyu Hurr/,all" Tho Jijl Shimpo gives the ages of tho seventeen members of the Japanese privy council. Two of them are nearly 70 years old; four of them aro over DO and tho others are about 50. The homo minister, Shlnagawa, publishes tho census of tho cities and towns of tho Japanese empire. Tho largest city, in Japan is Tokyo, which has a population of 1, 141.01)1, and the next largest Is Osaka, II) e population of which is 470,809. During the month of Juno there were 5,676 persons who took books from tho Tokyo free library, nearly all of thorn in tho Japanese and Chinese languages. Among the 8(5, 687 volumes drawn 7,482 wore books of "history, biography and geography," 6,763 of "law. and politics," 0,600 of "literature and language," 6,877 of "natural philosophy, medicine and thomat- los, " 4,174 of "engineering, tho arts and industries. " 2. OH7 of "philosophy and education" and tho rest wore of a miscellaneous kind. KONO by nDurrlui.;e. Whether luck or brains is tho more potonj is still a debatable question, but tho combination is Irresistible. Twenty years ago a bright young follow from thi) country was conductor on ono of tho stroot railroads of the metropolis. Ability and attention to business scoured his promotion stop by stop until ho was.made superintendent of the road. At this point ho lost his wife, nnd ono of the largest stockholders, who was also an ollicial in the company, died about tho Suino time. Tho rising man married the widow, stopped into his predecessor's official shoes, and handled his wealth as.if he had boon aooustumod to it all his life. From which jit appears that tho bright young car conductor can hope to cut his coupons before his hair turns gray. In Africa. A clergyman's wife now in the Transvaal writes this: "It seems strange to think of what is going on In this bustling city of 40,000 people (Johannesburg), where five years ago wore only a few scattered farm houses. To-night there aro fourteen prayer meetings In various churches, live or six missionary meetings, a congrogor tional bazar, a grand temperance rally, lenten services in the high church and Catholic cathedral, a skat- Ing ring entertainment; at which one of tho novelties will bo a race between native boys who never put ou skates before, a rendering of passion inujiio in Music Hall, the Jubilee SlugaiM 1 concert and many theatrical performances. " Nuu Untiling. Homo Tooko ridiculed tho practice of son bathing and said If any ono of tho soal species wore sick, It would bo just as wise for a fish physician to order thorn to go ou shore. Porson declared sea bathing was only reckoned healthy because many persons hnvo boon known to survive it; but Sheridan's objection to salt water was tho most quaint — "Pickles," said he, "don't agree with mo." Dog mid Tho dog is tho only brute animal that dreams, and ho and tho olophunt aro tho only quadrupeds that understand looks. The elephant Is tho only animal that, besides man, fools sorrow; tho dog tho only quadruped that lias boon brought to speak. Leibnitz bears witness to a hound in Saxony that could speak distinctly thirty words. — Sat. Evening Post Tlio ISreuthliiit Cave. Iii tho "Fork Range" of mountains in western North Carolina a singular phenomenon exists. It is the "Breathing Cave." In summer a current of air comes from it so strongly that a person cannot walk against it; while in winter tho rush of air inward is just as groat The cool air from the cave in summer is felt sometimes for miles in a direct lino.
