THE UPPER DM8 MOINES: ALGONAy IOWA WKDKBMPAy JULY 5. 1890. DICK RODNEY; Or, The Adventures of An Eton Boy... CHAPTER XXIV. The Thunderbolt. [An emotion of mingled freedom and Itisfaction possessed the whole crew being rid of our tormentor, and imbourne now took charge of the brig, which he was perfectly able to ;andle and work, though Ignorant of .vigatlon as a science, and having it a vague idea of the course to steer . the Cape of Good Hope. She was hove in the wind, while in ,the moonlight, about two hours-after fthe exciting scene which closes the last chapter, we committed to the deep 'the body of Antonio's last victim, the poor apprentice, whom the sailmaker - «ewed up in his hammock,, to which, being without shot or other suitable •weights, we tied a sack-of coals to •ink the corpse. The head-yards were filled again, and, as if anxious to leave that portion of the sea aa far as possible aatern, we hauled up for the cape. Tom Lambourne ordered every stitch of canvas that the spars would hold to be spread upon the Eugenie, that she might, as he said, "walk through the •water in her own style." All he could do at first was to keep her In the course we had been steering oil the night these disasters began, for as yet we knew not to what degree of latitude, south or north, we might have been drifting; however, we calculated that Hislop, weak as he was, might be able to take a solar observation anu prick off our place on the chart, in the course of six or seven days. We had the usually snug little cabin •leansed and cleared from the debris created by the outrageous proceedings of Antonio, who must have gone to the bottom with all Weston's valuables and money about him, as we could find neither; and the sweet expression of the poor widow's face, as it seemed to smile on us from the miniature on the after-bulkhead, contrasted strangely with all the wild work that had so lately taken place on board. Hislop and I were restored to our former berths, and then more than once In my dreams the pale olive-green Visage and glaring eyes of the Cubano came before me, and again I •eemed to see him clinging unpitied and In desperation to the slender boom •which swung above the seething sea —for his death and all Its concomitant horrors haunted me and made me unhappy. The Intensity of the heat in that season suggested the Idea that we could not have drifted far south of the line. So great was it that the upper spars of the Eugenie appeared to wriggle or •vibrate like serpents aloft in the sun- Bhlne; while so hot, so clear and so rarefied was the atmosphere between decks that It was suffocated, especially in the lulling of the faint breeze. A •white heat seemed to make sea and eky grow pale, and the former cast upward a reflection from its glassy surface and long smooth swells that vras hot—hot beyond all description. Though ever and anon the upper 'deck was drenched with salt water, it dried immediately, emitting a strong odor of wet wood, while the skids over the side failed to keep the paint, tar and rosin rising in large burnt blisters. About the time when we hoped that Hislop would have been well enough to make an observation, even by being placed In a chair on deck, the weather became so rough that he was unable to leave his berth, and during all that day the brig drove before a heavy gale, with her courses hauled close up, the for,e and main topsail yards lowered-on the caps, and their canvas close reefed, • After'the hea t we had endured, the reader way imagine this gale would be refreshing and a relief. Not so. The atmosphere, as it became dark with gathering clouds, increased in density, closeness and heat, thus about the time we should have had clear twilight, the hour was gloomy as a northern midnight—so dark that the men In the tops, or those lying out along the foot-ropes at the yard-arms, when under close-reefed topsails, could not be seen from the deck, while the breeze that swept over the ocean was breathless—hot as the simoon of the desert; and our men knew not whether they •were drenched by perspiration or the apoondrift torn from the warm wave tops by the increasing blast. The peculiar appearance of this black gale alarmed and bewildered Tattooed Tom, who could make nothing of it, •while poor Marc Hislop, whose skill would have been invaluable to us, when he heard the singing out on deck, the thunder of the bellying courses struggling with their brails, the roar of the wind through the half-bared masts and rigging, the clatter of blocks and feet overhead, writhed in his bed. fall, be sure it will become a typhoon, and then, -with a short-handed craft, heaven help us! But assure Tom it. is only as yet a trade-wind gale—to take as much canvas off her as he can, and to make all snug aloft. We'll have thunder directly, Dick—such thunder as you can only hear In the tropics." He sank back, these few words, exhausted even by while I hurried on deck with his orders. I had scarcely conveyed them to Lambourne, who was keeping a lookout forward, when, amid the dusky obscurity of sea and sky, there burst a sudden gleam of wondrous light. The men,'who were spreading some old, wetted sails over the sheet and working anchors; the steersman at the wheel, the watch and all hands who were crouching to leeward, or holding on by ropes and belaying pins to windward, seemed for a moment to become white-visaged specters amid a sea of pale,blue flame—a sea whereon the flying brig, with her brailed courses and reefed topsails, her half-naked masts and black cordage, were all distinctly visible as at noonday, while the polished brass on funnel, binnacle and skylight all flashed and shone, as ship and crew, with all their details of form and feature, Were instant seen and instant lost.' For a broad and blinding sheet o: electric flame burst upon the darkness of the night, and passed away as rap clutching the shrouds and belaying- pins. I rushed below and brought up a End of the blanket and great coat to wrap him in, and he was promptly swung over into the boat, -where Carlton received and supported him. Three bags of bread, with a tarpaulin to cover them, two kegs of rum, four casks of water, with oars, sails and blankets, were thrown pell-mell into the boat. A hatchet and a bundle of spun-yard completed our stores. The compasses were considered now to be useless, or were omitted, I forget which. The wind still amounted to a gale, though less violent, and It fanned the growing flames, so that the fated brig burned fast. The lightning still flashed, but at the horizon, and the thunder was heard to grumble above the hiss of the sea; yet we heeded tnem not, Chough they added to the terror and the grandeur of the scene; and, most providentially for us, the fury of the storm was past. Tattooed Tom was the last man who eft the brig, and the moment he was n the boat he exclaimed, with a loud voice, that rang above the roaring of he flames, which now gushed through every hatchway and aperture, above he howling of the wind and the break- ng of the frothy sea- Shove off!—out oars, there, to starboard—pull round her stern—pull with will to windward—keep the boat's bow to the break of the sea!" We pulled silently and vigorously, and soon got clear of the brig, through the four stern windows of which four lines of light glared redly on the ocean. All our strength was required to achieve this, for the brig, being the FINANCES OF THE NATION, Yenr »ef*al» * terlnff Showing:- WHY DO YOU BLUSH? f tot- the Latent Theory I* That There At* Two Closely Allied Can»e» for it.

Then came the roar of thunder— the stunning and appalling thunder o the tropics, every explosion of whlc seemed to rend earth, sea.and sky, a they rolled like a palpable thing, o like the united salvo of a thousand echoes at the far horizon. After a sound so mighty and bewildering, the bellowing of the wind through the rigging, the hiss and roar of the sea as wave broke against wave; the flapping of the. bralled courses; the creaking and straining of the timbers, seemed as nothing—the very silence of death—while the Eugenie tore on, through mist and spray, through darkness and obscurity, with the foam flying white as winter draft over her bows and martingale. Again there was a pale-green gleam overhead, right above the truck of the mainmast, where the chambers of the sky seemed to open. The clouds divided in the darkness of heaven, and out of that opening came the forked lightning, zigzag, green and ghastly. There was a dreadful shock, which knocked every man down, except Carlton, who was at the wheel, and an exclamation of terror escaped us all. A thunderbolt had struck the Eugenie! With all its wondrous speed—instantaneous as electric light could be—it glided down the main top-gallant mast, rending the topmast-cap and the fram.- ed grating of the top to pieces; thence it ran down the mainmast, burst through the deck and spent its fury her. However we got safely to windward, which was absolutely necessary, for to leeward there fell hissing into the sea a torrent of sparks and burning brands from the rigging, which was all in flames now. Resting upon our oars, or only using them to keep the boat's head to the break of the sea, and to prevent her being swamped—an operation during which they were as often flourished in the air as in the ocean, when we rose on the crest of one vast, heaving wave, or sank Into the dark vale of water between two—resting thus, we gazed in silence and with aching hearts at the destruction of our home upon the Gage. $205,919,116 and from Internal revenue $271,773,869. This is an increase over last year of $55,840,358 in customs, and of $103,293,051 in internal revenue, or legitimate Increase In receipts of $159,133,409. The miscellaneous receipts, however, are $47,864,100 less than last year, as the bulk of the Pacific railroad payments came in then. The expenditures arc $161,256,093 larger than the year before, or just about the amount of the increase In customs and Internal revenues, thus accounting for the increase of $50,000,000 in round numbers In the deficit. This increase in the deficit, therefore, is loss than a third of the increased expenditures growing directly out of the war, and the treasury statement Is wonderfully encouraging. The war budget for the year was $229,010,606 for the army and $64,734,159 for the navy, or a total of $293,744,706. Although the war began In April, 1898, the heavy expenses for the army did not begin to appear on the treasury books until the present fiscal year began July 1, so there is an increase in the budget of $142,955,107 Taking the fiscal year ending June 30, 1897, as a peace basis, the expenses of the army and navy were only $83,511,814, so that at the same rate the extraordinary war expenses of the last two years have been $277,510,797, which may be taken as the actual cost of the war up to date, The pensions still being paid on account of the war of the rebellion would have footed the bill for the difficulty with Spain day by day. in the hold. At that moment the main-topmast, with all its yards, gear and canvas, fell about the deck in burning brands, and the brig was hove right In the wind's eye, while the sea twitched the helm out of the hands of Ned Carlton, who became bewildered on finding the compasses lose all their polarity by the Influence of the electric fluid, the north point of one heading southeast and of the other southwest. Almost immediately after this there was a cry of "Fire! "—that cry so terrible, so appalling on board ship; and then thick white smoke was seen to issue from the crevices of the battened main-hatchway. All hands rushed to this point. The long-boat was unshipped from its chocks and dragged aft; some stood by •with buckets of water, while others struck off the padlocks and iron bars; the tarpaulin was torn away—the hatch lifted—and lo! A column of fire ascended in a straight line from the body of the hold—lurid, red and scorching, as the casks of molasses and bales of cotton burned and blazed together. A column that rose up between the masts, scorced through the mainstay, all the braces of the foreyards, and filled the whole vessel with light, announced that all was over. "It is a doomed ship!" cried Tom Lambourne; "we must leave her at last. Clear away the longboat. Be cool, lads; be cool and steady! Your lives depend upon your conduct now, and your obedience to orders!" sea. We could feel the heat of the conflagration even to windward. In a quarter of an hour she was enveloped from stem to stern In a sheet of fire that rose skyward in the form of a pyramid. By this time every vestige of her spars, sails and rigging had disappeared. The entire deck had been consumed; the bulwarks and molded plank-sheer rapidly followed, and through the flames that roared fiercely from the hollow of her hull we could see the black tlmberheads standing upward like a row of fangs. Rents appeared next in her sides a* the flames burst through the inner and outer sheathing, and with a hissing sound as they met the waves of the' briny sea. Then a salt steam rose, and Its strange odor, with that of the burning wood, was wafted at times toward us. At last she gave a sudden heel to starboard, and with a sound unlike anything I ever heard before—a deluge of water extinguishing a mighty flre— the waves rushed tumultuously in on all sides. She vanished from our sight in mist and obscurity, and a heavy darkness suddenly replaced the glare that for a time had lit up the heaving sea, dazzling our eyes and sickening our hearts.

One is named "ereuthopobla;" that is the ordinary cause—weakness, and the extreme sensitiveness and other conditions caused by it. The other Is designated "erythrophobia," and is the fear that one will blush unconsciously at awkward moments. The latter is a peculiar form of the disease. The individual In question, although not given to blushing, becoming gradually possessed with a fear that he will do so, at some Inopportune time, and this fear grows upon him until it completely masters him and makes him grow red In the face when there is not the slightest reason for it. At the most simple questions the color rises, and he Is placed in the most absurb situation. He Is looked upon with suspicion, because other people accept his confusion as consciousness of guilt; ho recognizes the fact, and of course his condition grows worse. Weakness Is responsible In this case also for the deplorable state of things, for when the sufferer Is taken In hand and he gets "braced up," he smiles at his former fears. It must be a very strong emotion that causes a flush to come to the face of a really healthy man or woman. Whatever they may feel they will not show It any more than they will show fear when confronted by great danger.

Cast Away, a moment was lost in getting and mourned his rather incapacity; own inactivity, or but he sent me to tell Lambourne to cover up the anchors with wetted canvas, as it was not improbable, by the state of the atmosphere, that it was full of electricity and thus we might be in a dangerous way. . "Tell Tom," he whispered, "It is a trade-wind gale—I know it to be so." • "How?" I asked, "when you are lying here below?" j "By the barometer, which remains high, while the wind is steady," replied Walop la a low voice, for he %M still very weak; "if the barometer the longboat over the side, and with a heavy splash, by which it was nearly swamped, we got it afloat. Ned Carlton and Probart, the carpenter, sprang in to fend off and keep it from being stove or dashed to pieces by the sea against the brig's side. By the wild, weird glare that rose in frightful columns from the main and fore hatchways we had plenty of light, a» It shone far over the huge billows of that dark and tempestuous sea, to which we were about to commit our fortunes, and now a pale and half-dressed figure approached us. It was Marc Hislop, whom the terrible odor had roused from his berth in the cabin, and he now came forward, supporting his feeble steps by Movement to Change the Curious, Quaint Names of Oregon Towns. It is difficult to shake off the names attached to streams and mountains by the pioneers of a new country. With few exceptions Washington state has fared well in nomenclature. In a majority of instances Indian names have been retained, and usually they are easy and poetical. But in some cases the individuality of the first settlers prompted them to an effort to improve on the native names of streams and sections, and in some instances they were not happy in their originality. The word Hangman has clung to the little stream which skirts Spokane on its western border, and repeated spasmodic efforts to center the public mind on the more melodious name Latah have failed of their purpose. Now Senator Plummer of this county has introduced a bill at Olympia to make this change, and as po objection can attach to the measure it will probably pass, and may exert sufficient force to bring about the desired change. A few years ago an esthetic movement swept through the Oregon legislature, and a number of pioneer names were turned down for more polite ones. The good people of Alkali, in eastern Oregon, imagined that tha name was not one to conjure eastern capital, and dropped it for Arlington. A new name was devised for Bully creek, and Yaller Dog' and Bake Oven were tabooed as primitive and unpoetlc. Bake Oven has adhered, and is still the name of a post- offlce. Indeed, much room remains for improvement of the nomenclature of Oregon, which includes in its list of postoflices the towns of Burnt Ranch, Gooseberry, Haystack, Lobster, Long Tom, Mule, Shake, Shirk, Starve- out, and Sucker. A few names In Idaho 'could be dropped for the better, among them Bayhorse, Corral, Gimlet, Gentle Valley, Sawtooth, and Yellow Jacket.—Spokane Spokesman-Review. Hoy'H Corpse In tho Wagon. Kokomo, ind,, July 3.—Sheriff Harness and a posse of men are out hunting two men seen fifteen miles south of here having the dead body of a boy In a wagon which they secreted In a thicket. The remains are supposed to be those o£ Pearl Evans, the 10-year- old sou of William Evans, a stock buyer. The boy had been called as a grand jury witness a week ago, but the same day he mysteriously disappeared. It is thought that the abduction and murder were by persons he was likely to involve by his testimony In tha grand jury room. The excitement is intense and a lynching is probable if the guilty men are found. GATHERING OPIUM. There Is a revolution in opium packing in India which it is calculated will save the growers $5,000,000 a year. Formerly, on taking the opium from the cultivators, It used to be placed in earthenware jars, and these jam were packed with straw Into wicker baskets. This antiquated method will, however, be seen no more, for the jar system is being replaced by packing the opium in cloth and gunny bags. It has undergone a preliminary test of two years in one sub-agency, and is now being g-lven a crucial test by being tried side by side with the jar plan, half tlie opium of this season being packed in jars and half in bags. There is little doubt, however, as to the final opinion. Love' is the mainspring' of the blessed life. Manila Hemp Not Hemp nt All. One of the most valuable products of our new possessions, the Philippine Islands, Is what is called Manila hemp, which is not hemp at all, but Is obtained from a plant belonging to the plantain family. Trees of three years growth yield only about two-thirds of a pound of fiber each; a bale of 270 pounds, therefore, represents the three years' production of about 400 trees. The Deerlng twine mills at Chicago consume an immense amount of this fiber, manufacturing one-third of all the binder twine used in America.

The officers and members of the North American Saengerbund express their highest appreciation now of the efforts of the local executive board in providing such a hall, and have issued a statement that the delay of twenty- four hours was due to unforeseen accidents and unavoidable obstructions.

The offer was a very flattering one, but Gen. Wood, after considering the matter for a week, decided to decline it. In view of the outbreak of yellow fever at Santiago he decided that it was his duty to return there at once. Chinese Menace Foreigners. Peking, July 3.—The French consul at Meng-Tzu, province of Yun-Yan, where anti-foreign disturbances recently occurred, reports that the situation Is unchanged. Thirty-eight well- armed Europeans took refuge in the residence of the Taotai after the siege of the consulate, which is now guarded by troops. , Escapes After lie Iw Uimged. Detroit Mich., July 3.—Eleven well- known citizens of Northville were arrested Friday, charged with attempting to lynch Thomas Evans, who was charged with improper conduct with his stepchildren. After being actually hanged by the neck Evans waa down aod finally eluded the The advantages are obvious—first, no breakages can occur, and there is much less lost by the amount of opium sticking or adhering to the sides. In the latter caae It is estimated that one pound per jar Is saved; while about 5 per cent is lost in breakages, or about four pounds per jax. There is, therefore, a saving of about five pounds per jar, and as each sub-agency sends about 30,000 jars, the saving amounts to 150,000 pounds. A chest of opium weighing 125 pounds sells for 1,000 rupees at least, so that the saving In one sub-agency alone comes to 1,200,000 rupees, which at the present rate of exchange may be taken to be equal to $400,000. There are five sub-agencies In Bengal, and probably the same number in the northwestern provinces, which gives a total of. $4,000,000, to which if is added the saving In freight, owing to the bags being loaded In several layers in a railway truck, instead of only one layer of jars, we get nearly $5,000,000, The refreshment stalls for the hundreds of cultivators who bring In their produce'are interesting. Thedr simple .wants are easily satisfied, and the greater part of the refreshment provided consists of a mixture of parched barley and grain ground to powder, mixed with a little coarse sugar. These small farmers live on very little and make a great deal of money on their opium. Letters from Homo. The American soldiers in the Philippines have some difficulty sometimes in reading letters from home. "Tha boys were all anxious to read their letters," writes one of them, "but the question was how to obtain a light. Our squad thought they had solved the difficulty with some gum oil in a dish and a rag, but no soone* had we got a good light burning than the bullets began singing around us at a great rate. The light was put out. I had plenty of matches, however, and I adopted another scheme. I covered my head with a poncho and scratched matches till the letter was read, although I almost suffocated in doing so." An Excellent Combination.
