What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

She was born In a country /Race near Rondeau Bay, On- tario, Canada, November 4, 1864. Her parents were John and Janet McKish- ney of Argyieshire, Scotiaud, and much of her youth was spent with her Scotch grandparents. She received a liberal education, and early manifested the imaginative faculty which caused her to be regarded as an indolent dreamer. At the age of 17 she wrote a book of prose, which, though showing the amateur, displayed much strength and originality and gave promise of the better things that were soon to follow. She has since been a contrib- utor to some of the leading magazines of . Canada and the United States, and her poeMs, etehinge and life -sketches have found their way to the hearts of thousands of readers in both countries. A keen observation and the faculty of describing what she sees In language that flows naturally from a poetic soul, give her the rare power of making the reader see, hear and feel r k 4. . 1(0,,,L A 4191i kL1, (Ice Ye' JEAN BLEWETT. with her, while the senses are gratified with the music that accompanies the revelation. Most Crowded Spot on Earth. The most crowded spot on the earth's surface is that portion of the city of Valletta, Island of Malta, known as the \Manderaggio.\ In the whole of Valletta the proportion Is 75,000 human being to the square mile, but in the Manderaggio there is one locality in which there are 2,574 persons living on a plot of ground less than two aeres and a half in extent. This would give no less than 636.000 persons to the square mile, or 1.017.6 to the acre. In Liverpool, the most crowded city in Britain, 5 .141e densest portions her( only 116.4 to the acre. Moisture in Man's Make-Cp., A British scientist recently made the statement that upwards of flve-sixts of the weight of a human being was composed of moisture. His colleagues questioned the statement, whereupon a hospital cadaver, the remains of a small, fleshy man, was obtained and put under the hydraulic press. The corpse weighed 140 pounds even and it was found that when every drop of moisture had been pressed from the body, the residuc was a•thin mass of dry, fibrous flesh and hones, weighing but thibej• three pounds. 31artott Cello ford.

Nichols Croneh, Now an Old Man Liv- in g at En I t lotore. Put Vorth This Melody. OW many millions Of people who have listened to the sweet strains of that plaiutive old song, \Kathleen Mavourneen,\ are aware that the com- poser is still Vying? A famous writer ham said: \There is no eloquence that thrills like Irish eloquence; there is no poetry that touches like 'flab poetry; there is no wit BO keen as 'Irish wit; there is no melody so sweet and plain- tive as Isiah melody.\ The composer of \Kathleen Mavour- neer:\ is at present at Portland, Me., where he occasionally goes to visit his old friends. The composer's name Ss F. Nichols Crouch, and he was born in Devon- shire in the west of England. in July, 1808. His hair is as white as the driven snow, but his frame is still erect and he is as young as ever and his soul as full of music. Music is his life and love, and, old as he is. he is continually writ- ing and composing. and the writer lis- tened for same time to sweet melodies and good harmony which he had just made. He is a man who loves socia- bility, and makes thoroughly enjoyable every hour you are with him listening to his fund of anecdote and reminis- cence. Professor Crouch has had an eventful life. The story of the writing of \Kath- leen\ is this: In 1,837, when Mr. Crouch was 19 years old, he noticed one day in a British magazine the little poem of \Kathleen Mavourneen,\ and was struck' whh ihe rhihthlc liegtity of the lines and the tender pathos of the theme. They kept running in his head, mid one day, while riding abOut the grounds of the duke of Bedford's castle at Engley, he evolved the melody of \Kathleen that was destined to be sung by countless generations and in almost every tongue. When he returned to his lodgings he completed the song. It was that sung by himself at a little concert in Ply- mouth, and after the concert he pre- sented the score and copyright to Mrs. Peter Roen, the wife of a music dealer of Plymouth, of whom he was very fond. The music house of Roen failed, and thsir effects passed to the large house of . 1 F. N. CROUCH. D'Altualne & Co. of London, and they published the song. ' It went like wild fire, and edition after edition was exhausted.

Out of all this vast amount of money the poor old composer has never received a dol- lar. Croneh has written many fameas songs, but none have approached - Kathleen' in popularity. Some Idea of the extent of its circulation can be gained from the fact that thirty-three lionises in America alone have pub liehed this song.

VALUABLE cOLLECTION IN THE NEW YORK CLUB. Old and Historical Desi g ns -Earliest Periods in the History . of the Sport *.iraphleally Illustrated Forei g n fu- nerary. N THE SECOND floor of the New York Yacht Club's house and but a few steps from the staircase to the right is the model - room. This room is 52 feet long, east and west; 22 feet wide, north and south, and about 25 feet high. It is abundantly lighted by windows at the east end and from two large, square skylights on its flat roof. The models hang tier above tier on the walls. Over the models, varnished, polished and painted, is a double row of gaudy flags, private signals of the yachtowners. Flags, innumerable and gaudy, are hung about the walls. On the right and in the middle of the room against the wall 4, an upright piano, and at the west e is a gallery handsomely decorated with flags. Two large and full-rigged models in glass cases occupy prominent Aces in the THE SAPPHO. room. One of these models is a fac- simile of the schooner Sappho. and it was made at the Model dockyard, Lon- don. England, from actual measure- ments of the vessel. It was given to the 'tub by ex -Vice Commodore Wil- liam P. Douglass. The other full-rigged model was made from the Mohawk and was given to the club by her owner, the late Vice Conimodore William T. Garner. Nowhere In the world are there so many models exemplifying clipper naval architecture and the continuity of which, in illustrating the evolution of the sailing yacht since 1840, is so per- fect. Generations of yachtsmen yet un- born will reap the benefit of this col- lection, to study which is as faseinat- ing as it ins pieasing anti instructive. One can look upon the old-time clipper, the model of which Is of Swedish origin. A straight sheer, great amount of dead rise, full bow raking above wa- ter and clean below at the forefoot, with a urn beginning forward of mint' ships and ending at the sternpost as thin as a knife. These were the prin- cipal feati.res of the beet' sailing: clip- pers a century ago. The Baltimore clip- pers and the Untied States frigates of 1812 were somewhat anolleled after these vessels. Our boats were a little sharper forward, especially tinder wa- ter, tine the midiship section was placed further forward. On the left hand, close to the en tranee, these ancient specimens of yacht medallions are hung in a group. Down further a step and the visitor comes to the yachts of the '50s, or the preeinc- dons of George Steers and his contem- poraries. The changes to be seen tram the old vessels are. generally speaking ttrst. a greater proportion of length. nrOre sheer and the bow higher above the water line. Down the long rooni one comes abreast of the vessels of the '60s and '70s. These craft are longer, proportionately. and larger by far than the Steers models. When the Sappho. Dauntless, Dreadnaught. Fleet wi ng. Resolute. etc., were built, the yacht - owners were not clone as at the present tirae.

JelTreys, of Boston, Mass., who docked her for Louis Mode to take her lines off and make the calculations necessary te alter her rig to e a schooner. She was also changed then from a centerboard craft to a keel vessel., In 1864 she came back to New York, snit un 186e she was sold to Providence, R. I.. and altered back into it centerboard. In 1871 she was sold to Boston again and remained there until 1881, when she came to New York and the experi- ment was made of putting her, or rath- er attempting to put her, back into her old rig and form, says the Herald. In 1884 she was rebuilt entirely and altered in model and dimensions, and she is noW\cruising in southern waters as the schooner Nirvana. The Julia won every race she ever sailed as a sloop but one, her maiden race, in which she was beaten by the sloop Maria. The cup defenders are in a bunch and a handsome lot they are. The Harvey cutters ilean and Bedouin look much alike. The Thistle is a work of art. There are 235 models in this collection. Among them is a model and plan of the old yacht America. Some mention shoeld be made of the model of the lost steamyacht Alva; also of the steam - yacht Electra. When the Marla assumed shape, the owner and skipper of the Eliza Ann guessed the new sloop's ability, and after some bantering J. C. Stevens bet him $500 that the Maria would beat the Eliza Ann the first time that she hoist- ed her sails. The Maria was rigged very taut and with a long topmast; in fact, she had a tremendous sail spread. They were to sail (limn from the dock at Hoboken and around the southwest spit and hack. The Maria. when she first filled away, caught a puff and down she went, hatches under. Dousing her mainsail, however, she was righted again and was towed back to the wharf. The Maria was very stoutly built and planked at one time with four -inch oak. Her frames were stiffened with flat Iron, bent hot and one inch thick, that extended above the turn of the bilge. She was lengthened about 1850, the model shows, and afterward she won many cups. She was in her old origi- nal sloop form when the Croquette, of Boston, beat her in 1846, in a north- easter outside of Sandy Hook, and be- sides the Maria carried away her cen- ter -board at the time. In her best days as a racer the Maria we 110 feet long on deck and drew about five feet three inches of water. She had an enormous sail spread, her mast being q2 feet, with a main boom of 95 feet She had outside 'lead ballast, and her' forward center -board was very large and weighed so heavily that it took n-everal men to raise it. The after board was smaller, anti bet seidem used. Her main boom was built • --- —wastgrr TitE % . oLITNTEER of si.o.ea of white pine, their edges dowelled and keyed.
