THE ANCHOR OF COLUMBUS.
He Lost It and Senor Argostino
Found It In His Garden.
On the night of the 2nd of August,
1498, the little fleet of Christopher
Columbus, the discoverer of Ameri
ca.he then being on his third voyage,
lay at anchor just off the southwest
point of the Island of Trinidad, off
the mainland of South America,
which he had seen that day for the
first time. "Being on board of his
ship," says Washington Irving in his
history of the great navigator, "late
at night, being kept awake by pain
ful illness and an anxious and watch
ful spirit, he heard a terrible roar
ing from the south, and beheld the
sea heaped up, as it were, into a
ridge or hill the height of the ship,
covered with foam and rolling to
wards him with a terrible uproar.
As this furious surge approached,
rendered more terrible in appear
ance by the obscurity of the night,
he trembled for the safety of his
vessels. His own ship was suddenly
lifted up to such a height that he
dreaded lest it should be overturned
or cast upon the rocks, while an
other of his ships was torn violently
from the anchorage, leaving her
anchor behind her. The crew for
a time were in great consternation
fearing they should be swallowed up,
but the mountainous surge passed
on and gradually subsided, after a
violent contest with the counter cur
rent of the strait. This sudden rush
of watar, it is supposed, was caused
by the swelling of one of the rivers
which flow in the Gulf of Para, and
which were as yet unknown to Col
umbus. The Anchor thus lost on the night
of August 2, 149S, nearly 400 years
ago, from one of the ships of Colum
bus, off the southwest extremity of
the Island of Trinidad (Point Arenal,
as Columbus named the spot, vide
Irving), has already been recovered
by Senor Argostino, the gentleman
who now owns the point of land in
question. It has the rare merit of
being the oldest relic extant of the
great navigator and of the discovery
As would be expected from the age
of this relit it is an anchor in the
simplest form of expression. The
shaft is round and eight feet nine
inches in legth. At the head of the
shaft is a round ring, nearly a foot
in diameter, to which the cable was i
fastened. The flukes have a spread
of about five feet. The total weight
is 1,100 pounds.
The anchor was dug up by Senor
Argostino in his garden from a depth
of six feet at the distance of 327 feet
from the nearest beach of the sea.
His first supposition was that he had
stumbled upon a relic of the Phoeni
cians or of some other of the ancient
nations who have been supposed by
many to have visited the
coasts of America thousands of years
ago. But an examination of local
facts and authorities soon convinced
him that a portion of his garden now
occupies the very post at which the
ships of Columbus lay at anchor on
the night of August 2, 1498. The
land is constantly rising from the
sea along this entire coast, as has
been shown by Humboldt, Findlay
and scores of others who have writ
ten upon this subject, and the rate
of this rising is known to have been
quite sufficient to turn in 400 years
the anchorage of the great fleet into
the garden of a private citizen
There is not a particle of doubt,
therefore, at the end of rigid en
quiry that has been made, that the
anchor recently found by Senor
Argostino is really and truly the lost
anchor of Columbus.

How Live Stock Will Help the
The Farmers' Union and Cotton
Association both are advocating
what clear-headed men have long
contended for namely, that the
cotton acreage should be kept down.
The farming population must have
something to make a living on, and
if it is to be less cotton it must be
more of something else. Raising
other plowed crops to replace part
of the cotton would aid the cause;
but there is still a better way.
One crying need to-day in the
South is land that is in good con
dition. Humus, decayed vegetable
matter, has been lost from the soil
to an extent that makes the soil
hard to work, easily affected by both
wet and dry weather so that crops
are injured easily by either, small
yields of crops every year, and small
profits. There are several ways
that organic matter can be added to
the soil, but in no other way can it
be done so profitably as by raising
stock on the land. The grass or
stored feed used by the stock should
give some profit at the time the
stock are sold, and the manure
would still remain behind to improve
the soil. In a very large number of
cases it pays the farmer who owns
his own land and works, to raise a
crop of cow peas, for instance, to be
turned under solely for improving
the soil. If, instead of turning the
crop under, it is grazed off by stock
or is made into hay and fed to stock,
the extra gain in flesh or wool should
in itself prove profitable; and if the
manure has the care that a product
of its value should have, from three
fourths to four-fifths of the manuri
al value originally in the crop can be
regained in the manure. This prac
tically means that such a crop
handled in the latter way ultimately
brings in from one dollar and a half
to two dollars for every one dollar
of outlay. This can be counted on
with more certainty than the profit
from a crop of corn or a crop of
If he does not have much money
to start with, he may find that it is
difficult to get stock enough to do
much the first year, and he cannot
get much returns from the manure
before the second year; but the cash
returns from the manure can be got
almost as soon as the cash returns
from commercial fertilizer could be
got. Men sometimes say, "Oh, I
can't do that; I don't have money
enough," They seem to imagine
that if they do not have capital
enough to engage in stock farming
on a large scale at the very begin
ning, they cannot engage in stock
raising on a small scale. If they had
reasoned that way when they were
earning to walk, they would be
creeping yet; but at first they made
small progress in walking, but they
kept on according to their ability
and more than a few of them have
developed into very good sprinters.
They can win out in the stock busi
ness the same way, if they show as
much determination as men as they
did as creeping children. On the
whole, it is generally just as well for
the average farmer to start into stock
raising on a small scale.

Napoleon understood human na
ture. He recognized the great
truth, "As a man thinketh in his
heart, so is he," and knew how to
apply it, not only to himself and his
own ambitious projects, but to other
men as well. Moreover, he knew
precisely the right moment to apply
it to quicken the spark of divine
energy which smolders in every man,
although the ashes of fatigue and
failure may cover its light tempor
arily. A French soldier carried a des
patch to Napoleon. Just as he de
livered it into the hands of the em
peror his spent horse dropped dead.
Napoleon wrote an answer to the
despatch, then, dismounting from
his own horse, he handed the bridle
to the soldier.
"Take this horse and ride back,
comrade," he said.
"Nay, sire," stammered the sol
dier, gazing at the blooded horse
and his trappings. "It is too mag
nificent and grand for me, a com
"Take it!" commanded Napoleon.
"There is nothing too grand and
magnificent for a soldier of France."
The soldier mounted and rode
away on his perilous business, ready
and willing, and Napoleon's words,
repeated through the ranks and
columns of his army, gave to his
tired troops fresh inspiration and
energy. "Nothing too grand and
magnificent for a soldier of France!"
they said, and the thought that they
were worthy of the best inspired
them to the mighty deeds which fol
lowed. "Had dyspepsia or indigestion for
years. No appetite, and what I did

Manufacture Your Raw Material.
Then, the hog notes are all right.
Many years ago the late Governor
Carr sent me to Nebraska to study
the beet sugar industry. I drove
around the neighborhood of the
great sugar factory at Norfolk, Neb.,
and talked with the German farmers
there who were supplying beets to
the factory. I asked one man if the
beets interfered much with his gen
eral crop of corn. He said: "Look
at the corn; there is no sunflower in
it." This was evidence of clean cul
ture, for sunflowers are the great
trouble there. I asked him what
corn was worth. "The elevators
are paying 25 cents a bushel." "But,"
said I, "is not that a poor price for
corn?" "Yes," said he, "but I sell
no corn to the elevator; I put it in
hogs and they walk off and get me
50 cents a bushel for my corn.
"That is well," said I, "but I notice
that the stores here in Norfolk are
all selling hams and bacon from the
Chicago packing houses. Could you
not cure some of the meat at home
and do even better?" "Dot iss goot
idea," said the Dutchman; "I think
I cure some unt get sefenty-fife
cents for corn."
Now, the Southern farmers with
a good Tamworth male to cross on
the native stock could make the
finest of hams and bacon, and the
turning of corn into hogs and tht
hogs into cured bacon would certain
ly be a mode of manufacturing one's
raw material that would pay much
better than selling the corn, and
would leave the manurial value of
the corn on the farm.
Selling raw products is not the
way for a community to get rich.
The South is rapidly getting away
from this in the manufacture at
home of the cotton, and every farm
er could increase his income by using
the raw feed materials to make more
valuable products in beef and pork
