ni-50VW THE DEAD MEN.
It is a strange business, this div
Ko'ing. The danger fascinates some,
jIbut the peril is never for a moment
xlost sight of. I put on the helmet
M"fur the first time more than ten
years ago, and yet I never resume
it without a feeling that it may be
the last time I shall ever go down.
Of course one lias more confidence
of "after a while, but there is something
i. in being shut up in an armor.
weignea clown with a hundred
pounds, and knowing that a little
leak in your life-pipe is your death,
that no diver can ever get rid of.
And I do not know that I should
care to banish the feeling, for the
sight of the clear, blue skv, the
genial sun, and the face of a fellow
man, after long hours among the
fishes, makes you feel like one who
has .suddenly been drawn away
from the grasp of death. I have
had some narrow escapes while
pursuing my strange nrofession ;
ouvery diver has, or has been unu
sually lucky to escape them.
- -1 think the most dangerous place
I ever ccot into was going down to
examine the propeller Comet, suuk
otf Toledo. In working nbout her
bottom, I got my air pipe coiled
. , overa large sliver from the staved
- hold, and could not reach it with
my hands. Every time I sprang
up to remove the ho.se my tender
would give me the " slack" of the
line, thus letting me fill back
fleam. He did not understand his
duties, and did not know what my
signals on the life-line meant. It
was two hours and a half before I
was relieved, and there was not a
moment that I was not looking to
o see the ho??e cut by the ragged
wood. It's a strange feeling you
have down there. You go walk
. iug over a vessel, clambering up
her sides, peering here and there,
and the feeling that you are alone
makes you nervous and uneasy.
Sometime a vessels sinks down
so fairly that she stands up on the
bottom and as neat as if she rode
on the surface. Then you can go
down into the cabin, up the
shrouds, walk all over her, just as
easy as a sailor could if she were
still dashing away before the
breeze. Only it seems so quiet, so
tomb like ; there are no waves
down there only a swaying back
and forth of the water and a saw
ing of the ship. You hear nothing
from above. The great fishes will
come swimming about rubbing
their noses against your glass, and
staring with a wondering look into
your eyes. The very stillness
sometimes gives life a chill. You
hear just a moaning, wailing sound,
likg the last notes of an organ, and
you cannot help but think of dead
men floating over and around you.
I have been down especially to
rescue the bodies of those drowned.
About four years ago the propeller
Buckeye, belonging to the Korth
ren Transportation Company, went
down in the river St. Lawrence, in
seventy-eight feet of water, and it
was Known in at a woman ana
child were asleep in their state
room at the time of her sinking.
The father begged of me and o tier
ed mo a good deal of moncr to
take out the corpses, and though I
dreaded the work, I at last con
sented. I had been all over the
wreck two or three times, and
knew just where the stateroom
was. The door was fast-locked,
and I waited a good while before
bursting it open.
Of course a dead person couldn't
harm you, butecven in bread day,
on shore, with people around you,
don't you know that the sight and
presence of a dead person brings
up solemn thoughts and nervous
feelings ? I new how they would
look, how they were floating
around the room, and if the father
hadn't been looking so wretched
above, there was no money to
tempt me in there. But at lar.t I
got a crowbar, from forward, and,
not letting myself think, gave the
light door a blow that stove it in.
The water came rushing out, the
vessel just then lurched over to
wards my side, and out they came;
the woman first, her eyes wide
open and hair ti-ailing behind, and
in her left hand she held the hand
of the clfild. I knew how they
would look, but I screamed out,
and jumped back. Her face was
fearfully distorted, showing how
hard death had been met, and the
eyes looked through the green
waters at me in a way that made
omy flesh creep. The child had
died easily, its little white lace
giving no sign of terror.
A diver docs not like to go down
more than a hundred and twenty
feet ; at that depth the pressure fs
painful, and there is danger of in
ternal injury. I can stay down for
hundred and fifteen or twenty feet
and do a cjood deal of hard wort'
In the waters of Lake Huron the
diver can see thirty or forty foot
away, but the other lake's will
Qscreen a vessel not ten feet from
Up here, you seldom think of
accident or death, but a hundred
feet of water over your head would
set you to thinking. A little stop
g page of the air pump, a leak in
your hose, a careless action on the
part of your tender, a id the weight
of a mountain would press the life
out of you before you could make
a move. And you may "foul"
your pipe or line yourself, and in
your hose bring on what you
dread. I often get my hose round
a stair or rail, and though I am
not called cowardly, and generally
release it without much trouble,
the bare idea of what a slender
thing holds back the clutch of
death from my throat, makes a cold
sweat start 'from every pore.;
From t'u o' California Farmer.
The disposition of many persons to pry
into the privacy of domestic life is, un
fortunately, very common, and i3 al
ways dishonorable. The appetite for such
knowledge is to be rcgariied as morbid,
and the indulgence of it disgraceful. A
family has a sacred right to privacy. In
guarding the delicate relations of the
household, secrecy becomes a virtue.
Even if by char.ee the private affairs o; ?.
household cro laid open to a stranger,
honor would require hira to turn from
them ; and if a knowledge of them were
forced upon him, they should be locked
in a sicred silence. A double obligation
af silence and secrecy rezta npon one
who h a guest in a family. The turpi
tude cf. a betrayal of family history by a
visitor i3 far greater than a theft would
be. It is a thing so scandalous that it
should degrade person, and put him
out -of society. To bctaay the secrets of
the household is not ou!y an odious im
morality, but it is a sin and a shame to be
on good tcrm3 with those who are known
to commit such outrages. They put
themselves out of the pale of decent so
ciety. They should be treated as moral
Those hungry-eyed wretches who sit in
the unsuspicious circle of parents and
children, treasuring their words, spying
their weaknesses, misinterpreting the lib
erties of the household, and then ran
from house to house with their shameless
news, are wors3 than poisoners of wells
or burners of. houses. They poison, the
faith of man in man.
Make no term;
with such people. Talebearers have no
rights. They are the cemmon enemies of
good men. Hunt, harry and hound them
out of society. They are the worst pcsls,
save one, and that is the listener to the
There could bo uo tattling if there
were no one to hear. It takes an ear and
a tongue to make a scandal. Greedy lis
tening is as dishonorable as nimble lat-
The ear is the open market where
tongue sells its ill-molten wares.
Some there are who will net repeat ngain
what they hear, but are willing 1o listen
to it. They will not trade ia contraband
goods, but they will buy enough of the
smuggler for family u&c. These respecta
ble listeners are the patrons of tattlers.
It is the ready market that keeps tale
bearing brisk. It is a shame to listen to
ill of your neighbhr. Christian benevo
lence demands that you do not love ill
news. A clean heart and a true honor
rejoice in kindly things. It should be a
pain and sorrow to know of anything that
degrades your neighbor in your eyes,
even if he is your enemy ; and how much
more if he is yov.r friend ?
The Scripture says : "Thou shalt not
go up and down as a t-?.le-lcarer among
the people." ,A tale-bearer revealeth
secrets; but ho that is of a faithful (hon
orable) spirit concealeth the matter."
' The wors of the t?le-bearer are as
wounds that go down into the innermost
parts of the belly." The Hebrews though t
that tho affections had their seat in the
bowels; and by this phrase, "go down in
to the innermost parts of the belly," they
signify how sharp and exasperating tc
tho deepest feeling of our nature are the
cruel offices of a common tattler.
"Where no wood is the fire goeth out ;
so, where there i3 no tale-bearing, the
strife ceaseth. Commend us to,that relig
ion which makes a man humane with his
tongue and honorable with lm ear.
It cost twelve thousand dollars a year
more to run the White llouse under Grant
than Johnson or Lincoln, several of
Grant's pets and relatives being employed
simply to wait on. each other.
THE SIAMES TWINS.
Chang and Eng Bunker, the Siamese
Twins, returned from Europe in the City
of Antwerp, which arrived ou Sunday.
They deny that they left America for the
purpose of being separated, and say that
the rumor to that effect was merely a sen
sation of Barnuin's. The link which binds
them seems to have shrunken of late, and
they are more closely joined than before.
They say that they are now determined to
settle down for the remainder of their
lives in Mouut Airy, North Carolina, their
old home, in which they spent thirty
years as Southern planters. In the eve
ning, Mr. Newell, father of Gen. Grant.
Jr., and Miss Jennet Swan, a fair young
sister of the celebrated giantess called
upon the twins, who were highly delight
ed to see them. Messrs. Bunker inquired
after the physical condition of their old
friend, the petite General, and were in
formed that he was in excellent health and
spirits, and would pay them a visit on the
following morning. Chang and Eng Bun
ker are "now over 58 years of age. Chang
uas a laniily ot nine, and Eng of eight.
They are easy and unembarrassed in their
manners, and appear to bear lightly the
weight of increasing years. Their hair is
thin and of an iron gray hue, and their
faces are shrunken and wrinkled, but
there is a fire in their eyes which shows
that the lamp of life may burn cheerly yet
for many lotfg and happy years.
