WINTER ON THE CANAL.
How tlie Men Pasa Their Time
During' the Season.
A. Mode of Living That Has Bat F"ew
Attractions Whole Lives
Spent Aboard the Cheer
How do canal men spend the winter?
is a question many people are prompted
to' ask at this time wihen the snow is
beginning1 to fly and the boats are hur
rying" to their various destinations.
People are interested in canal boatmen'
and the. hardy lives they live because
they are out of the usual run and their
slow method of doing- business savors
of the past, for canal boats moved just
as rapidly many years ago as they do
now. Then the canal man is becoming-,
like the stage driver, scarcer each year,
and there is a tinge of the romantic
about his mode of living-. Im the sum
mer and during- the open, season the ro
mance is never seen, for it's all hard
work then, and even in its more restful
features canaling ds like other occupa
tions something of a grind.
As for the time of rest, a canal man.
the other morning related his ex
perience in that line. He was past 50
and ever since boj-hood had followed
the life of a canaler. In his younger
days he may hare, given promise of a
Carfield, as even last night his first
-question, was for some good reading for
his wife during the winter. He ex
plained that something entertaining
-would do, as his wife had so much leis
ure time during the long winter nights
while he and the boys were playing
"I'm making a heavy pull to get to
Troy before the water runs out, and I
guess I will make it all right," said he.
"Yes, I was stuck one time, but a bpat
man never gets stuck twice. It was 13
years ago. We had a week- to make
Troy and were taking- it easy when: we
were froze hard and fast at the Four
Mile grocery just below here. Those
were the days we had cold weather,. and
we didn't float again until the spring.
We hadn't a heavy cargo, so it .didn't
matter much. Yes, there's some, of
them ties up along the route, but, most
of them go to Troy or Buffalo or down:
to Xcw York. They stay there all win
ter, knocking about the harbor, the
boys going to dances and the old folks
staying- at home. Work during the
winter? Well, I never have, but some
of thc:m do, but for the .most part the
'you see, in the winter the cabin.of
n bc.-.t is the snuggest place on earth.
It's 13 by 14 feet, and you lives eat, and
sleep hi there. Down in the ditch the
wind don't catch you and the boat is
airtight with two feet cf dead air be
tween the sides ar.d the cabin to keep
out cold. It's made of match boards
inside and out and the reef is four
inches thick so that a little stove makes
the cabin warm.
"Me and my wife have been, on the
2an'.il since we were boys and girls and
I haven't seen any of the country ex
cept that to be se.en from the boat on
its way from Buffalo to New York for
30 years. We winter at Troy. As soon
as we get there we take our horses and
drive them to a place wncre with about
200 ethers they are collected by a farm
er end taken to winter quarters. There
are farmers all along- the. route that
winter horses. Ours go to Fort Ed
ward, about 23 miles north of Troy,
where they are turned loose in the
fields. Kirkland is our man's name,
and he winters from 300 to 330. There
are sheds and. hay and strawstacks in
the fiolds and the horses, eat hay all
winter and sleep on clean straw in-the
sheds at night. About March 1 they bd
gira to feed them grain, three quarts a
day, and keep it' up until the season
opens. That is, we pay 90 cents ahead
cve.ry week for that, but I don't know
as they get it, because I don't stay there
"Xow, young fellow, when j-ou ask
if a man can live and keep his family
all winter on what he makes in sum
mer, you must know that he can't now
adays if he goes to many dances or gets
many drunks. Wc manage to scrape
along on bacon and pancakes for break
fast, meat three times a week for din
ner, a chicken on Sunday now and then,
audi at supper we generally eat what's
left. I've never saved anything, but I
would 'have if the trade kept up as it
was 30 years ago. Why, in '78 I think
it was, I -hauled wheat from- Buffalo to
New Y'ork at 26 cents a bushel for
freight. That was a 'living, I tell you.
If the state instead of deepening the
ditch had built free, elevators at Buf
falo so we wouldn't have to pay the
railroads for the use of theirs it would
have done us some good, but there ain't
a living now as there used to be."

Experiment with n Sleeper.
Prof. Mosso, the Italian physiologist,
constructed a couch so arranged that
it could be accurately balanced in the
middle when the slightest change of
weight would make either end incline.
A man was laid upon it, balanced in a
horizontal position. As he went to
eleep his head rose and his feet sank.
As he awoke the opposite occurred,
proving that the blood left the head in
one condition and returned to it in the
other. Chicago Chronicle.
Errors They- Sometimes Make AH
During the recent book sale in this
city, says the Chicago Chronicle, there
were many, calls for Henryx Sienkie
wicz's "Quo Vadis." One girl appeared
with a card bearing this: "Qwadiz," by
"Stinkwitz." Another reader asked for
"Two Waders," by "Sinkers," while a
third demanded "That book by the man
whose name ends in "itch."
"While the sale was going on a wom
an asked a cash girl:
"Can you find 'David Copperfield?' "
"I'll see," said the girl, and disap
peared. She presently returned and
said: . i
"No, mum. He don't work here no
Another customer at the sale was a
woman who drove up in her carriage.
She explained to the clerk that she had
just moved into her own house.
"The librarj-," she Eaid, "is one by
twenty and the shelves run around the
whole shootin' match:" She looked at
the stock of books and sweeping her
hand over a lot of shelving containing
about 1,500 volumes, she said: "Send
those books up." As the assortment
contained broken sets, odd volumes,
duplicates and paper covered . novels,
her "library" will be a motley collec
tion. WALKED 205,920 MILES.
Remarkable Record cf a Postman
Who Has Just Iletired.
A Mr. Roberts, for 33 years a postman
of Pilling in the Fvldc, North Lanca
shire, has just retired, reports the Lon
don Mail. For 23 years he walked from
Pilling to Fleetwood and back twice a
day, not to mention many perilous trips
in crossing the river Wyre during pe
riods of storm. A calculation of five
miles each way, four times a day (in
addition to his round at the village),
six daj-s in the week, for 22 years, shows
that he walked 137,280 miles between
Pilling and Fleetwood in the fulfillment
of his duty. During this time he must
have crossed the river Wyre (a by no
means pleasant task in the winter time)
27,457 times. His duties were consid
erably lightened when 11 years ago the
government decided to bring the mails
to Pilling by another route. Though
this did away with crossing the river it
did not reduce the distance Postman
Eoberts had to walk very much. In
cluding the village delivery, he must
in his 33 years of service have walked
no less than 205,920 miles.
DOGS AT KNIGHTS' FEET.
Why the Srrabcl Ik n Far-Reaching-One-.
I noticed in one cf :he r.cw?papers
that tfhe kir.g cf Siam. during- his "ju

Westminster abbej- ar.d that, seeing
there the figure of sees knight with
his dog at his feet, informed his suite

his majesty, fcr we ixzy depe-nd upon it
that our ndiH-rer.ee to the r-bcminable
custom so ccrj:r.n in less civilized
countries, perhr,r-s i:i Siam itself of
putting to e'i?nth t.s favorites of tbe

fact. The dog in question was doubt
less a greyhound.

The city of Essen is located in, the
senter of a hilly valley, which abounds
in coal and iron ore, and the digging
for both and the melting of the ore and
casting the metal into ingots and roll
ing it into bars have been the occupa
tions of the inhabitants for centuries
past. Frederich Krupp, the founder of
the great works bearing his name, was
born in 17S7, and when crucible cast
steel was first being introduced in
England, and its importation from
there into Germany had been made im
possible through the edict of Na
poleon called "the continental-spcere,"
V. Krupp began to produce crucible
;ast steel, first in small quantities for
Sles, stamps, rolls for coins and shears,
out only slowly could he convince and
nersuade German manufacturers to use
ciis cast steel, and after a life full of
lisappointments and hardships he died
n 1826, after a long and severe illness,
.eaving to his son Alfred little else than
the old homestead, which still stands
! in the midst of the great works, and
the secret of his invention.
Alfred Krupp's energy and enterprise
soon conquered. His first success was
to be able to furnish cast steel of a
varying degree cf hardness, thereby in
creasing its adaptabilitj' for many new
purposes. Next came the invention of
the weldless car wheel, tires, which
were patented in 1853 in all countries
and furnished him capital for enlarg
ing his plant. In 1SG5 he interested
himself in coal mines, iron ore mines
and furnaces, which should Jurnish the
material for his own works, and in
1867 he began to reap the harvest from
his experiments inaugurated long since
with steel cannons, . and the great
Franco-German war of 1870-71 proved
beyond doxibt their superiority as
against the old brenze camions. Since
then the success of these works and
f.hcir growth have been phenomenal;
aiid when Alfred Krupp closed the busy
and successful and philanthropic work
of his life in 1887 at Villa Ilucgcl, his
princely homo on the cidc hills of the
valley of the Eufcr, the city of Essen,
in recognition of his great wcrk, erect

ment ori the most prominent square of
the city, and deputations from many
nations mourned at his grave.
Essen is a city of 05,000 inhabitants,
and over 20,000 of this population are
employed in the works cf the able and
energetic son cf Alfred Krupp Fred
rich Alfred. Over 1,220 acres of ground
arc covered with buildings and ma
chinery. Many ccal mines furnish fuel
for the works, over 4C0 iron ore mines
furnish the metal, and large iron ore
deposits in Spain, near Bilboa, have
been purchased in addition, and a spe

TOLD HIS CLAM STORY.
Dow a Funny Detroit Man Won His
Case With the Jury.
Marshall P. Wilder, the funny little
man, is charged with having with
malice aforethought and evil intent
sprung a few of his tales on a jury and
thereby turned their verdict in his di
rection, says the Detroit Journal.
A few weeks ago Marshall came to
town and in the circuit court sued Dr.
Hercules Sanche on a promissory note
for S1.CG0. He won the case, and now
the counsel for the defense has applied
for a new trial on the ground that the
jury was improperly influenced.
The lawyer says that during a recess
Marshall went out into the hall and
told the jurymen a lot of funny stories,
including that one about the New Jer
sey elam digger who fed his family on
clams so long that their stomachs rose
and fell with the tide. That settled it,
the Sanche lawyer says, and the : lan
who laughs was solid as a boarding
house biscuit with the jury. They went
into court, he says, and chuckled out a
verdict in his favor.
The counsel for the defense says
Wilder's jokes would win a favorable
verdict -from a jury of pine stumps,
hence the application for a new trial.
WENT TO "JAIL FOR LOVE.
Woman Takes All the Blame for a
Harder Her Fiance Committed. .
The supreme court of Mexico has
asked. President Diaz to pardon Maria
Montesillos, who, some time ago, was
sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment
iii Belem'jail for a murder she never
committed. The crime for which she is
suffering- punishment was the killing
of Pascaul Montafio, in a family quar
rel. Miss Montesillos' lover, Piquinto
Torresy was the real murderer, but be
cause she loved- him Maria was willing
to take the penalty. She took all the
blame for the murder and during the
preliminary inquiry by the third crimi
nal judge, and afterward at the trial
by jury, stoutly maintained that she,
and she alone, was responsible for the
death of Montafio, whom she had killed,
she said, to free herself from his con
stant courtship and dishonorable
propositions. .Torres, therefore, got
off scot free, and the woman, as -the
murder .was considered to have been
committed under aggravated circum
stances, was sentenced to 20 years in
prison, a sentence which she. cheerfully
accepted. Rut Torres, when he got
out, was unfaithful, and jealousy then
proved too much for Maria when she
learned of this. She presented the
clearest proof that srhe was innocent
and Torres gnii!-, and showed letters
from him to that, effect. Her first at
tempt to f ecurc relief was made before
the .superior tribunal and was unsuc-'
;essf ul, but the supreme court has just
set aside that decision and asked Presi
dent Diaz to grant her freedom. '
TELEGRAPHING TO KLONDIKE.
The Lines Were Laid There About
Thirty Years Ago,
"When one considers the great primal
fact that Klondike is not in American
territory one can understand- why cer
tain Americans are doing their best to
discredit this mighty gold-bearing dis
trict in the ej-es of the world. But while
the discussion is going on the Canadian
government has lost no time in consid
ering the project of telegraphic com
munication with Klondike. This in
quiry brings out a strange fact strange
in that everybody seems to have forgot
ten all about it that there was once a
telegraph line to Klondike and far be
yond. Mr. C. R. Hosmer, the indefati
gable manager of the C. P. R. telegraph
wstem. does well to call it a romance.
.Long ago m 1863-04 there was no
cable between Europe and America.
Our trans-Atlantic news even during
the exciting episodes cf the civil war
was nlwaj-s about a fortnight old.
The attempt to make a cable connection
had ended disastrously and in this
junction of affairs was organized a gi
gantic enterprise, looking to the con
nection of the United States with Eu
rope via Klondike ar.d Behring sea!
Most electricians and telegraphic ex
perts had made up their minds that 40
miles which was the distance across
the strait represented- the longest a
submarine cable could be successfully
A company was formed, and what
was known in those days as Russian
Extension stock went off at a premium
of CO per cent. In-1865 the Lire be
tween New Wcstminsterand the Yukon
river was surveyed, found to be prac
ticable and traversed' completely the
present Klondike region.
The line was expected to be finished
in 1367. Even the tariff for messages
was fixed at 5 ($23) per message
The receipts were estimated to yield
about $0,00-0,000 per annum. The line
was actually constructed from New
Westminster along the present route
of the Canadian Pacific railway to Ash
crcft. where it was continued north
toward Behring sea to Fcrt Stager,
300 or 400 miles beyond Quesnelle. This
line is at this present moment in op
eration in a portion of the Cariboo coun
try. Then, in the midst of the whole busi
ness, after three years of hard work,
came like a thunderclap the news that
the Atlantic cable was a success. Three
million dollars had been expended; yet
the next day Russian Extension stock
was not worth the printer's ink on its

may be revived. In view of the com

say nothing of eastern Russia), why

"One Sunday we were nil at regular
family prayer. A sporting friend was
visiting me, and he and I knelt, facing
a low window with our elbows r.pon the
sill. And from round a corner, lo, t&ere
came up on us a coney, and he reared
up not two yards from us, end he heark
ened unto the prayers, and he winked
his nose at us, till my friend forgot
himself and exclaimed: We kin catch
that devil!' I threw up the window so
hard that I cracked a pane, and out we
leaped in red-hot chase. And the dear
old archdeacon almost burst trying not
to laugh, for he had seen tlhe rabbit,
and was a keen sportsman withal. We
ran that rabbit across four two-acre
!ots as hard as we could split, and at
Inst we get him into deep sr.cw, where
he gave up and was captured alive. And,
on looking back to the first fence we
had cleared, I saw a fuzz of white whis

voice shout: "They got him! they go

PECULIAR CHINESE CUSTOMS.
Tbe Yosng Are Bnrled with Few Fu
The customs of the Chinese in the
matter of death and burial are certain
ly peculiar. Infants are buried sum
marily without coffins, and the young
are interred with few rites; but the fu
nerals of the aged of both sexes are
elaborate in proportion to the number
of the descendants and to their wealth.
When a childless married man dies, hie
widow may perform all the duties of
a son' toward him, may remain in bis
house, and may rdopt children to rear
as his heirs, and as worshippers of the
family manes. If his widow purposes
marrying again, a young male relative
may, with the consent of senior mem
bers of the clan, undertake the services
expected from a son, arid may inherit
the estate of the deceased. When one
is about to die, he is removed from his
couch to a bench, or to a mat on the
floor, because of a belief that he who
dies in bed will carry the bedstead as
a burden into the other world. H6 is
washed in a new vessel, in warm water,
in which a bundle of incense sticks is
merged. After the washing the vessel
and the water are thrown away togeth
er, lie is then arrayed in a full suit
of new clothing, that he may appear
at his best. He breathes his last in
the main room before the largest door
in the house, that the departing soul
may easily find its way out into the
air. A sheet of spirit money (brown
paper having a patch of gilding on one
surface) is laid over the upturned face,
because it is said that if the eyes are
left uncovered the corpse may count
the row of tiles in the roof, and that
in such case the family should never
build a more spacious domicile.
WASPS IN THE PULPIT.
Nest of tbe Fiery Insects Made In tbe
A well-known Pittsburgh preacher
tells an amusing incident of his early
career, when he was serving a country
church. The time was midsummer.
One Sunday morning he was unable to
find his conventional black frock, and
at the last moment his wife persuaded
him to wear an ord inary coat which had
been lying on a porch for several days.
A large family of wasps had taken
shelter in one of the roomy pockets, but
in his hurry to get to the pulpit the
young minister did not have time to ex
amine the contents of the coat.
When he arrived at the country
chapel the congregation was waiting-.
The services had already commenced
by singing. As the aspiring preacher
walked up the aisle a peculiar buzz was
heard coming from the minister's per
son. Entering the pulpit he began his
eermon by reading a passage of Scrip
ture. Then he started iu on his sermon.
He had not gone far with the discourse
until he began to find something de
cidely wrong. It annoyed him. Soon
the sprightly wasps began to crawl out
of their nest and flew about the min
ister's head. He stood the ordeal as
long as he could with any degree of
peace of mind. Then the sermon was
brought to a speedy close and with a
fling the coot was cast out of a window.
