CUIcasro Young Man Goes Yachtlns
on lake Michigan and Strllccs
Against Hard Knocks.
A, young man, clerk In a Chicago de
partment store, relates his experiences
on his first yachting trip, in an amusing
manner, to a reporter of the Tribune of
the Windy City. One of his friends who
was the friend of a man who was tho
friend of another man who owned a
yacht procured an invitation for him,
and he accepted. '
"Iwent aboard the yacht," sajs he,
about 2:30 ' o'clock Sunday morning.
Tho yacht has another name, but
I vA call it the Sad News,
because that is not its name,
and I don't want to make the owners of
the yacht feel that I have gone out of
my way to bring their boat into "news
paper notorletv. I was told it was a fino
boat, and I think it must have been, or
I would not now be writing of the stir
ring events that befell us.
"It was the first time I had ever been
on a boat of any description except the
little row boats in Lincoln Park. As soon
as I got on the yacht the floorwalker,
or the manager of that department, or
whatever he was, who stood at the steer
ing business In the rear of the yacht,
told mo to go down below and find some
canvas trousers and put them on. I
went down In the basement and hunted
around and found the canvas trousers
and put them on and then came up on,
the Toof, or whatever you call it, again.
.The other fellows had been fussing
around, hauling the totta even which
way, and pretty soon wo were gliding
through .the wafer and out of tho har--bor.
I sat down to enjoy the cool breeza
when the manager yelled at me to 'stand
by the fore sheet.' I didn't know the
foie sheet from any other kind of a
sheet, but tood up and tried to look
intelligent and walked up the aisle along
one side of the cabin and laid my hands
on one of the sails, which I thought was
what the manager meant. I stood
straight up and kept standing there until
tho manager commenced saying swear
words and some of the other fellows
camo back and commenced hauling oir
one of the ropes. Then I sat down again
to think, things over, and I wondered
how much there was about a acht 3
didn't know.
Icnrns the Ropes.
"They kept telling me to do things
that T dldnt 'dq because I didn't speak
their language. Finally they discovered
that tho only way to get anything out
of me was to grab me by the collar and
lead me up to it, whatever it was, and
say, ere, now, pull on that.' I pulled
on ropes until my hands were raw and
my back sore. I wondered if they didn't
do anything else when out yachting but
Just pull old ropes back and fth.
"I stood by tho main sheet'and the fore
sheet and ' 15 other different kinds of
sheets, and got hit on the head by a
tackle block. &nd fell down and stabbed
myself on a boathook, and thought "of
all the fun I was having while the other
fellows -in the store that didn't know
anybody that owned a yacht would have
to sit around nice and lazy-like in the
shade In the park and listen to the band
"Finally we seemed to have hung" up
every sail there was on the boat and to
have pulled the ropes until they were
almost worn through, and then they told
me to go down and turn in. I went
down the stairs into the basement again
and went to sleep in one of the cots
against the wall. When I awoke we were
off Michigan City, and were going into
the harbor. I was Just in tflje to do
some pmnng' ana naming or tne ropes- i
had a rope in each hand and one between
my knees, and I think by the way the
manager was yelling ho was mad because
I wouldn't take another rope between
my teeth.
Tho yacht did some sort of a flank mo
tion I didn't understand and went bump
ing the pole that reaches out in front into
the wharf. Then the manager, who by
this time I discovered to bo the captain,,
made a great many remarks that would
have been considered sufficient cause for
dismissal even in the case of one of our
drivers given an order at 10 o'clock on
Saturday night, when it was raining, to
deliver in Woodlawn on his way. home In
Rogers Park. Finally 'the yacht stopped
and we dropped the anchor. The cook
got breakfast, and we went swimming
and had a real nice time.
He Gets Thirsty.
"At noon we put up tho sail3 again and'
did a few more stunts with the ropes and
sailed for home. I forgot to say that be
fore we sailed wo pulled tho anchor up.
We sailed along nicely. The sky over
head was a bright blue and the breeze
was cool and sweet. I lay in the shade
of one of the sails ana thought what a
nice thing yachting was. I went down In
tho basement again and hunted around
for the water casks that I have always
read had to be carried by every ship. I
couldn't find any water casks and came
up w 1th my throat parching. I concluded
the captain had forgotten to put any wa
ter casks on the yacht, and I didn't like
to mention it for fear of hurting his feel
ings. But when I found there was no
water on board I got thirstier and thirst
ier. "Finally I began to feel like a cast-away
on a desert island, and when I couldn't
stand It any longer I went up to the Cap
tain and said. 'Look here, I'm dying for a
drink.' He picked up a long-handled tin
dipper and reached down over one side of
the boat and scooped it full of water.
But I wasn't going to drink that. I
thought he was playing a trick on me,
but I had read too many stories about
shipwrecked sailors drinking the sea wa
ter and then going mad to be taken In
like that.
" 'No,' I said, 'not by me.
" 'What's the matter?' asked the cap
tain. " 'No sea water in mine," I said. 'No
county insane asylum for me," I told him.
" "Why, you fool,' said the captain
frankly, I thought, 'this ain't salt Water.
It's lake water. ' It's what you drink ev
ery day of your life.
"So It was- But I had never thought of
It that way. The Idea of reaching right
;out and dipping up a tin full of water
out of the lake and drinking It was some
thing I had never happened to think of.
Didn't Like the Idea.
" Still, I didn't exactly like to drink that
water. When we had passed over about
that same place In the lakeln the morn
ing I had stuck my feet overboard and
dabbled my toes in the water. I didn't
like to drink out of the same water I had
washed my feet In. This Is not pretty to
say, but it was $he way I felt about it.
Still, everybody else drank out of the dip
per, and I thought if they could stand it I
could, so I shut my eyes and'drank.
"Then. I went down In the basement
again and wentto sleep. When I awoke
I heard a terrible din of people running
by on the sidewalk overhead. It was
some time before I realized that I was
on a yacht and that it wasn't a sidewalk.
oerhead. but the deck. The boat seemed
to be rolling over. I clutched at some
thing to hold on to, but before I could
get fixed I was shot out of the cot clear
across the room. A lot of dishes tumbled
over on my head and a 'clock and a
spyglass tumbled out of a rack and hit me
In the face when I tried to get up. Some
body was looking down the stairway
yelling at me to come on deck and stand
by the helm.
"I-was willing enough to go on detk. I
thought If thd yacht was going down it
would be nicer to be outside where I
could have some show for my white alley
than to be cooped up In the basement. I
tried to crawl up the stairway, but when
I got half way up the water came pour
ing down on top of me and swept me
back again. I tried again, and this time
I got out on deck. The captain was yell
ing like a madman, 'Stand by the stay'sell
sheet.'- The yacht was tipped over so
that the deck was at right angles with
the water, and it was all I could do to
hold on, let alone bothering with some
thing I didn't know anything about.
Takes the Tiller.
'"-Stand by the stays'! sheet,' yelled
the captain at me again. 'We're going
down, fool, he howled, 'we're going dow n
if you don't stand by to ease off that
" 'Well, I yelled back, as loud as I
could, so as to be heard above the shriek
ing of the wind. ' 'I'm from Missouri.
You've got to show me,'
"He ripped oft a lot of swear words that
would have made a policeman sick.
" 'Take tho tiller, fool, he hollered at
" 'Where Is it? I, hollered back. "I'll
take anything there is coming. .He
grabbed me by the collar and dragged
mo down into the little half circle where
he stood. Then he let loose of the tiller
and, made a wild dive for some of the
ropes. Just as I started to take hold
of the helm the ship gave another lunge
and the water came pouring tver the
side. The tiller Jumped right at me and
gave "me a swat below the belt that
Knocked the breath 6ut of mo.
"I was swimming around there" Injthe
water trying to find that tiller". 1 thought
we were going to drown, sure. It occurred
to me that I could never ga bicycling In
Lincoln Park again. And 1 felt bad, for
I'm kind of foolish about my bicycling in
Lincoln Park. I dived down In the water
and got, hold of that tiller and pretty
nearly yanked It loose. The captain was
yelling: 'Put her down hard a-lee! Put
her down hard a-lee!" Well, I didn't
know what to do, but just to show him
my intentions were honorable, I gave the
tiller a vicious shove to one side. All the
sails acted as though they had been hit
by the roof of a house, and the boat stood
right up on its head, and I thought,
'Here Is where wcj sail right straight
down and go out of business.'
Catches the Idea Finally.
"Put her hard a-lee; put her hard
a-leo!' the captain was yelling. He tried
to come toward me, but he and the other
fellows were hanging like bulldogs on to
the ropes and trying to pull the sails In.
I concluded that If what I had done with
the tiller wasn't hard a-leelng It, then I
had better do something else and see If
that was It. So I fetched the tiller clear
around in tho other direction to the other
side of the boat. That seemed to be It,
for the captain turned his attention frcm
me and began to swear at the other fel
lows. "There are people who like the broncho
bucking decK of a yacht. Not by me.
I just want dirt good, nice dirt to stand
on. I'm a little foolish about my dirt
since I went on that yacht. It's good
enough for me now. People that want
to go out skimming In white, bird-like
yachts and all that sort of thing have
mp permission. But any old time jou
catch me out again, have the ambulance
and a man with a strait-jacket from tho
Detention Hospital down to meet tho
boat when I come back."
