they overflowed or leaked, flooding the rooms below.
in tne case or the outside tanks, the water often
frose solid in winter, necessitating expensive plumb

avoids all thia, because the air-tight tank is
either in the basement or buried uniler-

Tha Cook's Familiarity With tha Cap

Enos SIlMbv and - Ethan Knight
raine from the same Utile town oo the
roast t Maine. As boys they bad
grown up together, and now as men
the; were sailing together on the same
schooner. EKjuq was captain, and
Enos was the cook. Their position
might well bare been reversed, for
Ethan was better with the skillet than
Enos. and Euos probably knew as
niucb about navigation as his friend.
Still, they maintained their respective
plares, and neither thought of a shift
Usually on board the Maria there
was little formality between the cap

One day a naval officer came on
board on some business. Captain
Knight received blin In bis best man

ed to have bis good coat on when the
officer arrived unexpectedly.

ficer looked at once surprised and In
different. "Your conduct Is amazing, sir," the
captain said In bis most dignified man

you left it."
"You had It last, protested Enos.

Roughshod Methods of Sightsaars In
Albert Bigolow Paine says In de
scribing a visit to a Constantinople
'Some kind of ceremony was in
progress when we arrived; bit, as
usual in such places, we did not mind.
We went right In Just tbe same, and
our guides, too, and we talked and
pointed and did what we could to
break np tbe services. Old turbaned
sons of the prophet were kneeling and
bowing and praying here and there
and were a good deal In the way.
Sometimes we fell over them, but we
were charitably disposed and did not
kick them at least 1 didn't, and I
don't think any of tbe party did. We
might kick a dog kick at blm, I mean
If we tripod over one, but we do
not kick a Moslem not a live one. We
only take bis picture and step on him
and muss blm np and make a few
notes and go.
1 have been wondering what would
happen to a party of tourists Mos
lems, for Instance who broke Into an
American church during services, with
guides to point and explain, and stared
at the people who were saying their
prayers and stalked over them as if
they were wax figures. An American
congregation would be annoyed by a
mob like that and would remove it
and put It lu tbe calaboose. But, then,
such things wouldn't happen In Amer
ica. We have cowed our foreign visit
ors. Besides, there Is nothing In an
American church that a foreigner
would care to see." Outing.

The difficulty of keeping a modern
steamship on a straight course Is no
slight one. Tbe helmsman steers by
the compass, and, while a single de
gree of deviation appears very small
on tbe compass card. It would If con
tinued carry a fast steamship four
miles out of her course In a single
day's run. Yet tbe compass gives the
course more accurately than tbe ship
can be steered. Owing to tbe deflect
ing power of tbe waves and tbe roll
ing of tbe ship, which If she Is of the
twin screw type causes first one of her
propellers and then the other to exert
greater effect, the course is continual
ly shifted a little this way and that
despite tbe helm. Tbe only safety Is ,
In correcting tbe compass course by i
frequent observations of tbe sun, moon
and stars. New York Tribune.
Leavaa It to Har Judgment.
"Am 1 tbe first girl you ever kissed?"
asks the fair young thing from the
refuge of bis shoulder.
"Well." he replies, "after the way
my arm Just naturally slipped around
your waist as you unconsciously lean
ed toward me and my fingers tilted
your chlu as you unconsciously lifted
your head and I bent forward where
your Hps were waiting and didn't get
tbe kiss either on your nose or your
chin, but where It belonged after all
that, aud with the knowledge of the
subject which you have displayed. I
shall say nothing, except that I leave
tbe question toftyour own judgment"
Saving His Mats.
On one occasion at a crowded per
formance at the Hoy a I theater In Syd- j
bey, N. S. V, a number of years ago '
a couple of sailors who bad been '
drinking were seated In the gallery. I
One lost his balance and fell Into tbe
stalls. The other Immediately cried, M
"Man overboard!" and dived after his
companion. With the provorblal luck
of drunken sailors tbe first escaped
with a broken leg and tbe second
without a scratch.
