STEWARD OF AN OCEAN LINER.
A Position of Responsibility with am Army
of Subordinates to Oversee.'
It may surprise sorne old globe trot
ters to know that the big ocean grey
hounds running between New York
and the European ports carry on an av
erage nineteen thousand .pieces of
sterling silverware for their table serv
ice, and that this large amount of plate
is handled during the voyage by from
two hundred to two hundred and forty
waiters or ' 'stewards,"as they are called
on shipboard. The chief steward is
responsible for every piece, says the
New York Mail and Express. He must
be a man of quick powers of observa
tion, a student of human nature and be
up to ell the little devices of a small
army of subordinates usually keener
and quicker witted than those found
ashore in the same calling. It is &
Wsy day for the steward twenty-four
hours before the time set for departure.
He has purchased or contracted for aU
the supplies and an assistant sees that
the contracts are fulfilled. But his per
sonal attention must be given to silver
ware. He keeps a regular debit and
credit account and can tell to a tooth
pick just what he will start away with.
On the voyage passengers are apt to
lose spoons or forks or other ware by
accident, and occasionally a gay blade
may think it amusement to toss a sugar
bowl or half a dozen knives through a
port hole. It is needless to say that he
furnishes a quid pro quo before he
goes 'ashore. When the other side is
reached the chief steward spends a day
in balancing accounts. He started with
so much, and so much should be on
hand. If there is a difference he seeks
to find it, and if he can't find it he
"makes good" himself. The responsi
bility of such a position naturally com
mands a high salary, and every- chief
steward on every ocean steamship run
ning from this port is, without excep
tion, a man of unimpeachable integ
rity. The extraordinary record is that
in thirty years there have been but
two accusations of a betrayal of a trust.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years
was supposed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronounced it
a local disease, and prescribed local rem
edies, and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it in
curable. Science has proven catarrh to
be a constitutional disease and therefore
requires constitutional . . treatment.
Hall's Catarrh, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure in the market. It is
taken internally in doses from 10 drops
to a teaspoon ful. It acts directly on the
bloodjand mucous surfaces of the system.
They offer one hundred dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for circulars
and testimonials. Address.

THE NEWFOUNDLAND DOG.
Be Is the Xoblesi Species of the Whole
The Newfoundland dog takes his
name from the island where he is sup
posed to have" originated. Many, how
ever, believe that the Norsemen, who
discovered America in the year 1000, in
troduced this dog in Newfoundland.
He is by some classified among the
wolf-dogs, while others, on account of
his large pendulous ears, say that he
should not belong to this family, but
that he and the St. Bernards should
occupy a place by themselves.
The Newfoundland, says Harper's
Young People, since his introduction
in England, has improved in appear
ance, and . is now larger and heavier..
In Newfoundland and Labrador these
dogs are used' as beasts of burden,
drawing considerable loads of wood
and provisions on sledges. Their feet
are partially - webbed, and therefore
they, are most excellent water dogs.
The scent is not strong, and as the dog
is slow and clumsy, he is not valuable
to the hunter, except as a retriever
when speed is not required.
In the island of Newfoundland this
dog is almost totally black, but the
English varieties are usually black and
white. As a watch-dog the Newfound
land is -only second to the mastiff. He
is amiable to children and small dogs.
Kept in confinement he often gets cross
and ill-tempered, and flies at those for
whom he has previously shown the
Where a dog cannot be allowed to
run, and must be chained up, the New
foundland should not be kept. This
dog is a great life-saver, and by in
stinct will jump ipto the water to save
even an enemy from drowning1.
THE VAMPIRE BAT.
A Dread Creature That Is Common In
I have always despised bats, said a
Cleveland man recently, and it always
sends a shudder over me whenever one
of the hideous creatures approaches
me. The bats of this country, how
ever, are not to be dreaded in compare
ison to those of the vampire species
which abound in India. Just imagine
a big mouse with a horn on his head
like a rhinocerous, furnish him with a
pair of demon-like wings, and you have
a very good picture of this latter kind.
The natives dread the vampire bat on
account of his blood-sucking propensi
ty. In the sultry nights he fans the
heated sleeper with his wings while
his needle-like teeth are being in
serted into the veins of his victim,
quenching his thirst for blood with
such gentleness that it is only by some
fortunate chance that he is discovered
before tho mischief is done. It is a
well-authenticated fact that if an indi
vidual is once bled by a vampire he is
invariably chosen, in preference to all
others equally exposed for a subseqent
attack, and even if he were to move
ten or twenty miles away, no im
munity is gained thereby, as the bat is
sure to follow him and keep up his
blood-thirsty attack until his victim
succumbs or the animal is discovered
and killed. Cattle and . horses, from
being more exposed, are more frequent
ly chosen as the subjects of attack by
these loathsome creatures.
Some Superstitions Abont Haddocks and
The banana possesses wonderful sus
taining properties, and yet years ago,
in the warm countries where it flour
ishes, the banana was thought of so
lightly that it was allowed to waste if
not eaten by the cattle. .
The plant itself was valued simply as
a shade for coffee trees, between rows
of which it wa3 planted.
Somebody once told me, says a writer
in tho Gentlewoman, that the Span
iards used to regard .the banana as a
forbidden fruit, because they detected
in it3 heart the transverse section of
' .1 remember, too, how one of my early
governesses used to delight me - by
showing me the cross and the apostles
in the center of the passion flower; and
the other day a friend told me of some
curious symbolical marks to be found
at the back of the neck of the haddock,
indentations similar to those that
might be caused by the finger and
thumb, the supposition being that the
haddock was one of the fishes picked
out of the net on the occasion of the
miraculous draft of fishes.
CHAMPIONS IN THEIR LINE.
Absent-Minded People Who Were Simply
They are telling a story of a Dutch
man who presented himself at the reg
istar's office recently to obtain a license
for his approaching marriage, and who,
on being asked the name of the bride,
was compelled to confess that it had
quite escaped him, and he had to re
turn home for the necessary informa
tion. It's a pretty good story of ab
sence of mind, but there are others on
record that are even better. There
have been cases where persons have
even forgotten their own names.
Lessing, the historian, was subject
to the most wonderful fits of abstrac
tion. One night, returning home late.
he rang the front door beU, and when
a servant caUed out from an upper wih'
dow that the professor was not at
home, he said: "All right, I'll come
again," and walked away.
There was an English clertrvman.
Kev. George Harvest, who was engaged
to a aaugnier oi tne bishop of London,
but on the day of his wedding went
fishing, and forgetful of the appointed
hour did not appear at the nuptials.
The lady broke off the match.
Making Bain In India.
A rainmaker in India has an appar
atus consisting of a rocket capable of
rasing to tne neignt of a mile, contain'
ing a reservoir of . ether; in its descent
it opens a parachute, which causes it
to come down slowly. The ether is
taxown out in fine spray, and its ab
sorption of heat is said to lower the
temperature about it sufficiently to
conaense tne vapor ana produoe a lim
ited shower. '
