V M E L V I N , STEELE i JOHNSON. EDITORS A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1. A YOUNG HERO OF '76. / ~ I'ho Part Tliat He Played In tlie Capture / of Tlcomlerugn. ^f the boy heroes of the Revohi- tioiiJNie first and almost forgotten one \fiis Nathan Beman. In the spring of 1775 he lived with his father, a fanner, near the village of Shorehnm, which was opposite Fort Ticouileroga. Farmer Beman was an American, ~-'-tevotecl to the cause. Being of a rov- ng disposition and fond of piny, iathan had often crossed the lake VI formed the acquaintance of the ys whose fathers composed the Tliylittle fellows had fino times under the walls of the fort, and every now and then Nathan went in- sido and saw how things were moving along there. In the month of May Ethan Allen, at the head of the famous Green Mountain; Boys, came up through the forest to surprise nnd capture, if possible, the fort and its garrison. The expedition with which Benedict Arnold was connected was composed of three divisions, one of which was to capture some boats at Skenesboro and send them down the lake to Allen and his men, who were to get them at Shoreham, but when the renowned Green mountain leader reached the latter village, in nighttime, not a single boat awaited him. This was a bitter disappointment, for Allon bad but 83 men with him, and his position was one of great hazard. It looked like madness to assail with this small force an armed place like Ticonderoga, yet it was still more dangerous to lemain idle. "We can't wait for- boats, my boys," exclaimed the intrepid Allon. "We must afc-sault the fortress!" In looking for a guide the Vermonter found Farmer Beman, who, as soon as he found out what was wanted, said: "Why not take my boy? Nathan knows all about the fort. He's been all over it and knows tho location of every rathole, inside and out." Tlie suggestion delighted Allen, and little Nathan was called in and questioned. "I'll go, sir," he said at once. "I know the way to Delaplace's quarters, too, if you would want to find him." Delaplace was the commandant, and of course the very person whom Allen wanted. The spoil that fell into the hands of the victors amply repaid them for all tbe dangers they had faced, and the fort remained in the hands of the Americans until many months later, when it was abandoned and dismantled by General St. Clair. The little party crossed the lake in euch boats as were at hand. The oars were dipped silently in the starlit water, and no one spoke above a " whisper. Morning was near at hand, and so much precious time had been lost that every moment had to be put to use. When the patriots reached the opposite shore, thoir commander turned to Nathan Bemau and, laying his hand upon his shoulder, said quiok- "We're ready now. Show us the "wny to the sallyport." Guided by the farmer's son, the mountaineers moved toward the fort and, coming suddenly upon a sentry, heard the snapping of his fuselock and saw him run through a covered way within the walls. "Quick I" cried the boy, looking up at Allen, and the soldiers sprang after the guide and made thoir way to the parade ground unopposed. . The enthusiasm of the patriots now broke forth in sounds of victory, which, reaching the ears of the British soldiers, caused them to epring from their pallets and rush from the barracks, only to be made prisoners as they appeared. Never was a surprise more complete, thanks to Nathan Beman. When Allen had secured most o± the garrison, he asked the boy to ehovr the way to the commandant's rooms, and the two were soon running up the steps leading to them. - Bang, bang! went Allen's sword against the colonel's door, and the itish officer hurried out of bed to answer the demand.--Lake George Mirror. Women'K Pockets. Ladies 50 years ago when going on a journey by stagecoach carried their cash in their under pockets. There were no railways opened in Wales then, and people who had not " a close carriage either went in the mail coach or in a post chaise. Farmers' wives and market women wore those large under pockets, remember my Welsh nurse had one, wherein, if she took me out cowslip -. picking or nutting or blackberry gathering, she carried a bottle of milk and a lot of biscuits or a parcel of sandwiches, often a clean pinafore as well. Her pocket on those occasions was like a big bag. I was very proud when she stitched up a wee pocket for me to wear under mvfrock, out of some stuff like bed- ficking, similar to that of which she made her own big pockets. Married to a I'lower Taw. Among the curious marriage customs prevailing in China is one ^ which is thus described by a writei in The Family Herald: Not long ago a veiy pretty girl, the daughter of a prominent Chi · nose official, was married with great pomp to a large, red flower vaso, representing a deceased bridegroom who had died a few days before hi wedding was to be celebrated. His inconsolable bride elect declared that she would never marry *ny one else, but would devote her. self as » widow to the- dead man's family. So the ceremony with tho flower vise was gone through with to enable the girl to enter the fam- - ily, and the town proposes to biiild «n arch to commemorate her devo- lie Was Not Fined. According to the rules laid down by the Philadelphia department of public safety, any officer making a mistake and calling a patrol wagon without cause is subject to a fine of two days' pay. Quite recently one of the best and most efficient officers of the Thirteenth district went to all up the station house and inadvertently called the patrol. He was in an awfnl stew for a moment, but while swearing at himself for his carelessness ho espied a well known local character approaching with a peculiarly unsteady gait. "Stop I" said the bluecoat, whose brain had suddenly absorbed a bright idea. You've been drinking, and you will just help me out of adifficnlty." What have I done?" asked the man. "Oh, nothing, only I have niadea mistake," replied the patrolmen, "and if the patrol comes you go to the station, and if it don't you :an go along about your business. I've let you off many a time. Now you can help me." The patrol arrived, the victim was hustled into :he wagon and taken to the station and looked up for the night. Of course he was discharged in tlio morning none the worse for his slumber on the hard bench. The officer to square himself banded over 50 cents to the man and chuckled to himself at the thought of how ho bad saved $5 by his ingenuity.-Philadelphia Record. Son they and Longfellow. Southey was doubtless Longfellow's peer in versemaking skill, says J. S. Tunison in The Atlantic, and we have the expert testimony of Mr. E. B. Tylor that Southey iuew a great deal about savages. 'Madoc" itself attests his learning. But well as that poem is constructed it has no aboriginal character. Its savages are devoid of racial character. They might as well be lalled ancient Gauls or Britons save tor some external features of rites and customs. What was impossible for Southey once on a time is now impossible for everybody. In spite of daily additions to the knowledge of Indian lore, the Indian of the f ort as he was has forever escaped Erom his conquerors. Nevertheless the world will always turn back to the figure of the North American wild man with curiosity. It will dwell on the pathos of tho Indian's defeat in the struggle for existence and muse with melancholy interest on what he might have become. This is the opportunity of Hiawatha. It happened to Longfellow to depict the Indian at a time when it was etill possible to know him as ho had been at his boat, to realize that he was capable of fine ideals and that these were not wholly impracticable. Thus he has done what can never be done by anybody else. Her Rose. "Well," said Miss Twitters, "I think I am safe now." "Safe from what!" asked Miss Eittish. "Burglars." "Were you in danger from burglars?" "I think I was. Everybody is, more or less, but more especially an unprotected lady in a big house. I've been afraid of burglars ever since John and his wife went west and left me by myself." "What have you done to insure eafety?" 'I have bought four men's hats, of different styles and sizes, and I have hung them on the hatrack in the hall. When Mr. Burglar surveys the array, he will decide that there are too many men in that house to make his exploit as safe, as he might wish, and he will go on to porno other house. I rather natter myself that tins is a pretty good plan. Don't you think so?"--Harper's Bazar. YOU ARE INVITED.

Sharks furnish a number of valuable products. The liver of tho shark contains an oil thai possesses medicinal qualities equal to those of cod liver oil. The skin after being dried takes the polish and hardness of mother of pearl. The tins are always highly prized by the Chinese, who pickle them and serve them at dinner as a most delicate dish. The Europeans, who do not appreciate the fins as a food, convert them into a fish glue. As for the flesh of the shark, that, despite its oily tasto, is eaten in certain countries. The Icelanders, who do a large business in sharks' oil, send out annually a fleet of 100 vessels for the capture of tho great nsb.--Exchange.. Civan «jow« m i l k . It is a terrible thought, nevertheless a true one, that if the cow's milk fed to babies were only clean thousands and thousands- of little lives would be spared each year. But the milk in the majority of cases is not clean. To this fact is largely due the enormous death rate among children thus artificially fed. The uncleannews begins with the process of milking and continues unlil the milk is a wallowed as food. Is it not strange that such a simple lesson of cleanliness canuot bo learned? How many of those who do the milking take the trouble to thoroughly cleanse the hands before engaging in that process? How often is the udder of the cow carefully washed before milking? To both these ques tions the answer could be truthfully given, "Very raroly indeed." Yel these cleansing processes should be rigidly insisted upon. Germs removed from a liquid by running it through a sieve, no matter how fine its meshes may be. Indeed the question should not be how to get the germs out, but, rather, how to keep them from getting in.--Trained Motherhood. The Real Thing. Mudge--Won't you try one ol these cigarettes?
