to very high authority the latest advices received at the Win ter Palace here are to the effect that the naval battle is still progressing off Port Arthur The result is yet unknown The Japanese fleet including torpedo boats and torpedo boat destroyers totals forty Vice Admeral Makaroff ordered his whole squadron out of the har bor to meet the attack It Is officially announced that Vice Admeral Makaroff was drowned at the time of the sinking of the battleship PatropavlovskIt that from six to sev en hundred men perished when the Petropavlovsk sank The reports are very conflicting as to Vice Admiral MakaroSs death and as to wheather the catastrophe wag the result of a fight with the en emy or due to the Petropavlovsk striking a mine in the harbor Some of the rumors declare that Mokaroff was on board the Petropavlovsk and others say he was not The report that there had been a fight seems to have originated out ot the supposition that the Petropavlovsk could not Have sustained such injuries otherwise It was also pointed out that it was known that the Japanese hal been hovering in the neighbor hood for several days It is now believed that the mine which sank the Petropavlovsk bad drifted out of its original position The latest estimate of the men who lost their lives is eight hundreds The definite announcement that Vice Admiral Makaroff was drowned has cast a gloom over the entire city It is generally believed that he will be succeeded by Rear Admiral Rojestvensky who was stated to command the Baltic squadron and that Vice Admiral Skrydloff com mander of the Black Sea fleet will be placed in command of the Baltic squadron Hancock Circuit Court HnwMvltle Pliilndenler In many respects the term of Cir cuit court just ended here was the queerest on record but if we

BENNETT Y wl r f PIPED HIS MEN Unique Way in Which Job Brown Gave Orders to His Army When John Brown was besieged it the engine house at Harpers Ferry during his famous raid for the libera tion of the slaves of the South he piped the orders to his followers on a sliver whistle which has just been discovered in Washington by the officers of the Kansas Historical Society An effort is being made to secure the in strument for the societys museum When John Brown gathered his me around Harpers Ferry and began preparations for the seizure of the are senal he Instructed them according to the story to hide themselves in mountain forestsnnd to refrain fro being seen together Then he gave them instructions to listen each day at sunrise and sunset for their orders which would be piped to them with the boatswains whistle These Instructions were carried out to the letter and for some days pro ceeding an attack on the arsenal the people ot Harpers Ferry heard th mysterious piping from Brown headquarters The notes would b taken up by the nearest of his fol lowers until the farthest distant of his band had received the word of the commander When Brown was cap tured the whistle was taken from him by Lieut Stewart of the regular army who afterward became a lieu tenantgeneral in the Confederacy Stewart finally gave it to Col Wash ington who in turn presented it to John Cassin then a well jraown lawyerThe whistle is row in possession of Mrs Mary A Cassin who lives in Georgetown Brown pleaded to be permitted to retain the whlatle He told Lieut Stewart that he had had it fora longtime and had used it in Ran sas for the same purpose as at Harpers Ferry The whistle is about nine inches long and in an excellent state of preservationI Saved TwoFrom Death Our little daughter

ILOCKS ILij IIT WAS already begin nlng to grow dark She sat and she sat she waited and she waited I and at Inst she wept but very quietly Her father did not come Ben Greenway was not thoro and even that Charter boy had gone A man came aft to her a mild faced elderly man with further offers of refreshment and an Invitation to goI below out of the night air But she would have nothing and as she sadly j waited and gently wept It began to grow truly dark Presently as she sat one arm leaning on the rail she heard a voice close to her ear and she gave i a groat start It Is only Dlckory whispered the voiceThen she put her head near him and i was glad enough to have put her arms around his neck- I have heard a great deal more whispered Dlckory these men are dreadful They do not know what keeps your father although they have suspicions which I could not make out but if ho does not come on board by ten oclock they will sail without him and without his cash box And what of me she almost cried what of me They will take you with them said he thats the only thing for them to do But dont be frightened dont tremble You must leave this vesselBut how she said Oh I will attend to that he an swered if you will listen to me and do everything I tell you We cant go un SHK WAITED AND SHE WAITED til it la dark but while it is light enough for you to see things I will show you what you must do Now look down over the side of the ves selShe leaned over and looked down He was apparently clinging to the sido with his head barely reaching the top of the rail Do you see this bit of ledge I am standing on ho asked Could you get out and stand on this holding to this piece of rope as I do Yes said she I could do that Then still holding to the rope could you lower yourself down from the ledge and hang to it with your handsAnd drop Into your boat 1 said she Yes I could do that No said he not drop into my boat It would kill you if you fell into the boat You must drop into the wa terShe shuddered and felt like scream ing But It will be easy to drop into the water you cant hurt yourself and I shall bo there My boat will be an chored close by and we can easily reach It- Drop into the water said poor Kate But I will be there you know said Dlckory She looked down upon the ledge and then she looked below It to the water which was idly flapping against tho side of the vessel la it the only way said she It is the only way he answered speaking very earnestly You must not watt for your father from what I hear I fear he has been detained against his will By nine oclock it will be dark enough And what must I do she said feeling cold as she spoke Listen to every word he answered This la what you must do You know the sound of the bell in the tower of tho now church Oh yes said she I hear it often And you will not confound It with the bell in the old church Oh no said she It Is very differ ent and generally they strike far apart Yes said he the old ono strikes first and when you hear ItIt will be quite dark and you can slip over tho rail and stand on this ledge as I am doing then keep fast hold of this rope and you can slip farther down and sit on the ledge and wait until the clock of the new church begins to strike nine Then you must get off the ledge and hang by your two hands When you hear the last stroke of nine you must let go and drop I shall bo there j But if you shouldnt be there j Dlckory Couldnt you whistle couldnt you call gently No said Dickory if I did that their sharp ears would hear and lon terus would be flashed on us and per haps things would be cast down upon us That would be the quickest way of getting rid of you But now I must get out of sight or somebody will come and spoil everything Dlckory Charter had not told Miss j Kate Bonnet all that he had heard when he was stealthily wandering I about tho ship He had slipped down I into the chains near a porthole on the other side of which Big Sam and the blackhaired man were taking sup per and he heard a great deal of talk Among other things he heard a bit of conversation which when expurgated of its oaths and unpleasant expressions was like this You are sure you can trust the men said BlaclehalrIOh yes replied theyre all right I Then why dont you go now At j any time officers may be rowing out here to search the vessel i And well they might For what needs an old farmer with an empty ves sel a crew of 70 men and ten guns He is in trouble you may wager your life on that or he would be coming to see about his girl And what will you do about her Oh shell not be in tho way an swered Big Sam with a laugh If he doesnt take her off before I sail thats his business If I am obliged to leave port without his cash box I will marry his daughter and become his sonin lawI dont doubt we can find a par son among nil the rascals on board then perhaps he will think it his dutI to send me drafts to the different ports I touch at At this good joke both of them laughedThe minutes moved slowly very slowly indued as Kate sat listening for the sound of the old clock and at i the same time listening for the sound of approaching toots telsIIt was now so dark that she could not have seen anybody without a light but she could hear as if she possessed the ears of a cat Presently the old clock struck one two In a moment she was climbing over the rail In the darkness she missed the heavy bit of rope which i Dickory had showed her but feeling about she clutched it and let herself i down to the ledge below Her nerves j were quite firm now It was necessary to be so very particular to follow DlckIIorys directions to the letter nerves were obliged to be firm She slipped still farther down and sat side ways upon the narrow ledge So nar row that if tho vessel had rolled sheI could not have remained upon it There she waited Then there came sharper and clearer out of the darkness in the direction ofI the town the first stroke of nine oclock from the tower of the new church Before the second stroke had sounded she was hanging by her two hands from the ledge She hung at her full length she put her feet togetherI she hoped that she would go down smoothly and make no splash Three tourfieslxseven eight nineIand she let her fingers slip from the ledge Down she went into the dark ness and into the water not knowing where one ended and the other began Her eyes were closed but they might as well have been open there was nothing for her to see in all that blackness Down she went as if it were to the very bottom of black air and black water And then suddenly she felt an arm around her Dlckory was there She felt herself rising and Dlckory was rising still with his arm around her In a moment her head was In tho air and she could breathe Now she felt that he was swimming with one arm and both legs Instinctively she tried to help him for she had learned to swim They went on a dozen strokes or more with much labor until they touched something hard My boat said Dlckory in the low est of whispers take hold of It Kate did so and he moved from her She know that he was clambering into the boat although she could not see or hear him Soon he took hold of her under her arms and ho lifted with the strength of a young lion yet so slowly EO warily that not a drop of water could be heard dripping from her gar ments And when sho was drawn up high enough to help herself he pulled her In still warily and slowly Then he slipped to tho bow and cast off the rope with which the canoe had been anchored It was his only rope but ho could not risk tho danger of pulling up the bit of rock to which the other end of It was fastened Then with a pad dIe worked as silently as If It had been handled by an Indian tho canoe moved away farther and farther Into the darkness Is all well with you said Dlckory thinking he might now safely murmur a few words All well she murmured lack ex cept that this is the most OT v bio boat I pv tt in loon my orange bas kc no said perhaps you can move it a little Now he paddled more strongly and then he stopped Where shall I take you Mistress Bonnet he asked a little louder than ho had dared to speak before Kate heaved a sigh before she an swered she had been saying her prayersI know you brave Dlckory she answered but it seems to me that you cant see to take me anywhere Everything is just as black as pitch one way or another But I know the river he said with light or without it I have gone home on nights as black as this Will you go to the town- I would not know where to go to there she answered and In such a PlightThen to your home said he But that will be a Jong row and you must be very cold She shuddered but not with cold If her father had been at home it would have been all right but her stepmother would be there and that would not be all right She would not know what to say to her Oh Dlckory she said I dont know where to go I know where you can go he said beginning to paddle vigorously I will take you to my mother She will take care of you tonight and give you dry clothes and tomorrow you may go where you will CHAPTER IV ON THE QtAHTEUDECK S THE time approached when Big Sam intended to take the Sarah Wil liarns out of port it seemed really necessary that Mistress Kate Bonnet should descend from time exposed quar terdeck and seek shelter from the night air in the captains cabin or in her own room and as sho had treated him so curtly at his last interview with her he sent the elderly man with tho mild countenance to toll her that she really must go below for that he Big Sam felt answerable to her father for her health and comfort But when the elderly man and his lantern reached the quarterdeck there was no Mistress Kate there and during the rapid search which ensued there was no Mistress Kate to be found on tho yes set Big Sam was very much disturbed she must have jumped overboard But what a wild young woman to do that upon such little provocation for how should she know that he was about to run away with her fathers vessel This is a bad business he said to the blackhaired man and who would have thought It I see not that said Black Paul nor why you should trouble yourself about her She Is gone and you are well rid of her Had she stayed aboard with us every ship In the colony might have been cruising after us before tomorrows sun had gone down But this did not quiet the cowardly Samj you said he ex A little before dark she went ashore In a boat which Was then leaving the ship I allowed j her to do this because she was very much in earnest about it and talked sharply and also because I thought the town was the best place for her since J it was growing late and her father did not seem to be coming Now If the old man comes on board thats what halJI poned but if he does not board the devil and the fishes knowI what happened and they may talk I about it if they like But if any man says anything to old Bonnet except as I have ordered then the fishes shall have another feast I And now what I have to say to you said Black Paul Is that you should get away from here without waiting for the tide If one of these rascals drops overboard and swims ashore ho may get a good reward news of the murder committed on thisI vessel and there Isnt any reason to think so far as I know that the Sarah Williams can sail any faster than two or three other vessels now in the har bor i Theres sense In all that said Big Sam as he walked forward But ho suddenly stopped hearing not very faraway the sounds of oars In a few minutes Bonnet was on- board i with a big box and the crew of the longboat Speaking rapidly he explained to Big Sam the situation of affairs The authorities of the port badI indeed sadly interfered with him They had heard reports about the unladen vessel and the big crow and although they felt loath to detain and to exam ine a fellowtownsman hitherto of good report they did detain him and they did examine him and they would have gono immediately to tho ship had it not been so dark But under the circumstances they contented themselves with tho assurances of tho respectable Mr Bonnet that he would appear before them tho next morning and give them every op portunity of examining his most re spectable ship Having done this they retired to their beds and tho respecta ble Bonnet Immediately boarded his vesselNow cried Capt Bonnet where is my daughter I hope that Ben Greenway has caused her to retire to shelterYour daughter exclaimed BIg Sam before anyone else could spcait she Is not here It was still early twi light when she told mo she would wait no longer and desired to be sent ashore in a boat This request of course I Immediately granted feeling bound i thereto as she was your daughter and j that I was In a measure under her ordersCapt Bonnet stood knitting his brows Well well ho presently cried with an air of relief It Is better so Her home Is the best placo for her as matters have turned out And now said he turning to Big Sam call tho men together and set thorn to quick work Pull up your anchors and do whatever else Is necessary to free tho ship then lot us away Wo must bo far out of sight of this Island before tomorrows sunrise In a very short time the cable WUB slipped for Big Sam had no notion of betraying tho departure of tho vessel by tho creaking of a capstan and with the hoisting of a few sails and no light aboard except the shaded lamp at the binnacle the Sarah Williams moved down the river and out upon the sea- I And when are you going to take the command In your hands asked Black Paul of Big Sam- Tomorrow some time was the answer but I must first go around among the men and let them know whats coming Soon after dawn the next morning Capt Bonnet was out of his hammock and upon deck He looked about him and saw nothing but sea sea sea Big Sam approached him I forgot to tell you said he that yesterday 1 shut up that Scotchman of yours for from his conduct I thought that he had some particular reason for want I ing to go on shore and fearing that If he did so he would talk about this vessel and so make worse the trouble I was sure you were In I shut him upI as a matter of precaution and forgot mention him to you last night You stupid blockhead roared Mr Bonnet how like an ass you have acted Not for a bag of gold would I have taken Ben Groenway on this cruise and not for a dozen bags would I have deprived my family of his cart and service You ought to be thrown Into time sea Ben Groenway here Of all men in the world Ben Greenway here I only thought to do you a service said Big Sam- Service shouted tho angry Bonnet But as It was of no use to say anything more upon this subject he ordered tho sailing master to send to him first Ben Greenway and then to summon to him no matter where they might be or what they might be doing the whole crew The other surprised at this order objected that all of the men could not leave their posts but Bonnet overruled himSend me the whole of them every williremaintho ship will take care of itself for a spaceWhat can that old fool of a farmer intend to do said Big Sam as he went away he Is like a child with a toy and wants to see his crew in a bunchPresently came Ben Greenway In a smothered rage An I suppose sir said he with out salutation that ye have glen or ders about the care o tho cows and the lot o poultry that I engaged to send to tho town today Dont mention cows or poultry to me cried Bonnet I am a more angry man than you are Ben Greenway and as soon as I have time to attend to NEWII shutting up and shall come down upon the wrongdoers like sheeted light ningWhat a fearful rago yoro in MasterI Bonnet said Den I never like o it If yoro really angrier than I I am I wlllna revile leavln it to ye to do tho rovllin wha are so much bet ter qualified An so it wasna accident that I was shut up in the ships pantry leavln Mistress Kate to gang hamo by hersel an to come out this mornln flndln tho ship at sea an ye in cpm I mandSay no more Don cried Bonnet I am more sorry to seo you hero than if you wore any other man I know in this world But I cannot put you off j now nor can I talk further about it being very much pressed with other matters Now hero comes my crow Ben Greenway retired a little lenn railI ho muttered a lot o unkempt wild boasts It strikes me Mayhap ho has gathered thorn to glther to convert their souls an he is about ti t ili his first sermon to- theta J Now all tho mariners M tho Sarah Williams were assembled aft nnd Capt Bonnet was standing on hid quarter I deck looking out upon thorn Ho was whichIa stout sword hung by his side lie folded his arms ho knitted his brows and he gazed fiercely about to see if anyone were absent although if anyone had been absent he would not have known It Ills eyes Hashed his cheeks were Hushed and It was plain enough to all that ho had something Important to sayMy mon he cried In a stalwart voice which no one thero had ever heard him use before my men look upon me and you will not see what you expect to see Here Is no planter no dealer In horses and fat cattle no grower of sugarcane Instead of that ho yelled drawing his sword and flourishing it above his head instead of that I am plrato Bonnet the new terror of tho sea You my men my bravo men you are not the crew of tho good merchantman tho Sarah Wil liams you are pirates all You are tho pirate crew of the pirate ship Revenge That is now the name of this vessel on which you sail and you are all pirates who henceforth shall sail her Now look aloft every man of you and you will seo a skull and bones under which you sail under which you tIght under which you gain great riches in coins in golden bars and in fine goods fit for kings and queens As he spoke every rascal raised his eyes aloft and there sure enough floated the black flag with tho skull and bones tho terrible Jolly Roger of till Spanish Main and which Bonnet himself had hoisted before ho called together his crew Fur the most part the men wore astounded and looked blankly tho ono upon the other They knew they hall been shipped to sail upon somo illegal cruise and that they were to bo paid high wages by the wealthy Bonnet but that this worthy farmer should bo their pirate captain had never entered their minds thoy naturally supposing that their future commander would not taro to show himself at Barbadoes and that ho would be taken on hoard at some other port As for Big Sam ho was morn than astounded lie wan stupefied He had woll knowu the character of the ship from the time that Bonnet had taken him into his service and lit It was who had mainly managed the fittingup or the vessel and the shipping of hor crew lie did not know whom Bonnet intended to command the ship but from the very beginning he had in tended to command her himself limit he had been too late lie had not gone among tho men as he had expected to thisIout of his sails and had boldly announced that he himself was tho cap taro of tho pirate ship Revenge The men now began to talk among themselves and as Bonnet still stood his sword clutched in his hand and his chest heaving with the excitement of his own speech there arose from tho crew a cheer Somo of them had known a little about Stedo Bonnet and somo of them scarcely anything at all except that he was able to pay them good wages Now he had told them that he was a pirate captain and each of them knew that he himself was a plrato or was waiting for the chance to become oneAnd so they cheered and their cap tains chest heaved higher and the soul of time luckless Big Sam collapsed for ho knew that after that cheer there was no chance for him at least not nowNow go my boys shouted Bonnet back to your places every ono of you and fall to your duty and In honor of that black flag which floats above you each of you shall drink a glass of grogWith another shout the crow hurried forward and Stede Bonnet stood upon tho quarterdeck the pirate captain of the pirate ship Revenge And now stopped up to his master that good Presbyterian Ben Greenway An ye call yoursel a pirate sir said he an yo go forth upon the sea to murder an to rob an to prepare your soul for hell Mr Bonnet winked a little You speak strongly Ben said ho but that might havo been expected from a man of your fashion of think ing But let me toll you again my good Ben Greenway that I was no party to your being on this vessel Even now when my soul swells within mo with the prldo of knowing that I am a sovereign of the seas and that I owo no allegiance to any man or any government and that my will is my law and is tho law of every man upon this vesseleven now Ben Greenway it grieves me to know that you are hero with me But tho first chance I get I shall set you ashore and have sent home Thou art not cut out tora plrato and as no other canst thou sail with me Ben Greenway looked at him steadfastly Master Stedo Bonnet said he yo are no more fit to bo a bloody plratoIthan I am Yo ovorseo your tion wool although I hao often persuaded that yo know no as as ye think yo do Yo provide wool for your family although yo tak no pleasure therein yo might hao taken had yo been content wP one

plrato captain It Is enough to make a deceased per json chuckle by tho absurdity it Ben Greenway exclaimed Mnj Bonnet I dont like your mnnner ff 1 speech 0 course ye dont cried lien an I dldim expect yo to like It but it Is tho solemn truth for a that- I dont want any of your solemn truths said Bonnet and us soon as I get a chance I urn going to send you homo to your barnyard and your cowsNo sotso
