The Hooghly Pilots.
Pilots for the Hooghly do not cruise
much to pick up vessels; they hare a
regular station near a lightship, and if
it is thick weather it is nice work to fall
in with them just right. Their vessels
have always been full rigged brigs
manned by heavy Lascar crews, and are
about the last thing afloat to tell of the
days of the old East India Company.
Their signal is a white flag with a red
cross, and they are supposed to brave
all sorts of weather, maneuver through
a cyclone if necessary. Soon we had
the Eastern lightship in sight, and in
en hour's time (nine a. m.) were close
to the brig. She hove to, launched a
heavy sun or lifeboat in fine style, and
in it sat eight Bengal sailors with their
oars a peas, waiting the movements of
the pilot In the meantime we had our
mainsails brailed up and ran slowly
down by the brig. The turbaned Las
cars looked strangely through their rin
ging and over their hignbulwarks at
us, and the brass-bottoned pilots and
officers took a searching look at the
Conception as she forged slowlv ahead.
We hauld sharp around under ner lee,
laid the main and crossiack yards to
the mast and there waited with all
hands at the braces ready to fill away
as soon as the pilot came. He was now
in the boat with several others in the
stern sheets coming for us. They had
so much luggage that , the chief officer
sang out from the forecastle deck: "I
guess they are coining to stay." It
was a pretty sight. The noble ship,

A Heathen Ceremsy.
A hack, driven in that reckless man
ner which characterizes au China
town hackdriving, came dashing down
Jackson Street one afternoon last week
and paused before the dingy pile of
brick and mortar still known as the,
Globe Hotel, though it has longr been
the abode f a large number of Chi
nese of all grades and classes of filth
and wretchedness. The occupant of the.
vehicle pushed open the hack door,
thrust forth a gorgeously enveloped
foot and leg, and in moment stood on
the sidewalk in all the glory of a long
scarlet robe, green breeches, a gondola-shaped
hat, and a pig-tail of unusual
length. He was tall Fc
or a Uhinamen, i
ancf rather slim, the long robe seeming
to add a foot or two to his stature. Two
similarly arrayed Celestials sprang
from the doorway of the building to
meet him and said something that
sounded to Anglo ears like " Soon
ahoy," almost in unison. This saluta
tion was responded to by "Bale o
hay!" and the three marched up the
steps into the building, the last speaker
leading the way.
"it s some losh business,: said the
policeman who was called on to ex
plain what these maneuvers meant.
But the explanation was not a very
full one, and the reporter's curiosity
getting the better of him, he climbed up
the outer steps and followed the scarlet-
robed Mongolians up two or three
flights of dirty stairs through the smoke
and stench which permeated the whole
interior. The trio paused before a
gorgeously decorated doorway leading
Into a room devoted to the worship of.
Chinese deities a large room, in which
were several Uhinamen, some standing
and others sitting on low benches. As
the three. newcomers opened the door
some musicians seated in a corner of
the room sent forth a burst of melody
almost as sweet as that usually heard
in a boiler Jactory. The noise continued
until the scarlet-robed Celes als had
made the circuit of the room and paused
before a huge joss, where they stood,
solemnly for a moment and then pros
trated themselves before it, all the oth
er Chinamen falling on their knees with
their heads bent to the floor. Then the
music struck up again and the heathen
arose to their feet and began chattering
among themselves as on ordinary occa
sions, ihe reporter seized this pause
10 the ceremonies to inquire what was,
being done, and it was explained by
one Chinaman who spoke English quite
plainly that the idol had only been set
up in the room that morning, and that
jt was now bemo consecrated bv the
priests. The reporter then stood back
at a respectful distance and witnessed
the enactment of a strange scene, simi
lar to tfcat which Wores has recently
been placing on canvas "lne Conse
cration of a Joss.
A Chinese boy with a red pigtail now
brought a long-legged cock to the tall
priest, the one who had lately arrived
and who seemed to be master of oere-
monies. The fowl was taken by the

his feet. Rows of punk sticka and wax

basin of water, in which the priest

them in the direction of the joss. The
bowing process was then repeated, the
unearthly music resounding through
the room so loudly that the reporter
was obliged to place his hands over his
ears to keep out the din. i
1 hen came the most interesting por
tion of the ceremonv. The bov with
the red pigtail brought a small pot of
vermilion and a brush. One of these
was handed to the right-hand assistant
and the other to the left. Both were
then presented to the priest who took
them, mumbling some words, which
could scarcely be heard on account of

round red 6pot on each. This per-
fected the divinity of the joss. Before
this he had been only pasteboard and
paper; now he was omnipotent. His
eyes could read the future, and he was
capable of giving good fortune to his
worshipers and baa luck to those who
disregarded him and believed not in
his powers. The musio ceased, the
ceremonies came to a close and the
heathen passed out of the joss-house,
down the stairs and into the street.
These ceremonies are of monthly oc
currence in all , the joss-houses, the
paper gods being taken out into the
street and burned, and new ones set up
m their stead. Fan Franciseo Chron

muscles of the lome; at other times by

quent cause is disease of the spine,
known as spinal meningitis, which con

amenable to simple treatment, as the
use of cooling and alterative medicines,
and counter irritants applied to the
loins. Relief is frequently afforded by
giving the animal two to four ounces of
raw linseed oil. with half an ounce of
turpentine, fomenting: the back with
hot water, and after drying It applyin
spirits of turpentine or camphoratei
spirits to the loins. The feeding should
be moderated, as overfeedms is some
times tho cause of it, and always in

Poison in Soda Water.
After making: a study of the soda wa
ter sold in drug and other stores in con
nection with a careful analysis of the
water and examination of the fountains
through which it is drawn, Dr. Ellas N.
Hartley, chemist of the Brooklyn Board
of Health, has made a report to Health
Commissioner Raymond of which the
following is a synopsis:
In the latter part of May I procured
samples from fountains in various parts
: of the city, with the view of ascertain-
incr whether, as ordmanlv dianensed.
the "plain soda" was free from lead and
copper. As a result of that examination
L found that in some cases after the
water had stood for some time in the-
faucets and pipes, both these metals
may be found to exist in the water first
drawn. The quantity found was not
large in any case, but enough to be con
sidered harmful when taken for consid
erable time. I next examined into the
construction of various fountains and
faucets used in this city, to get some in
formation as to the source of these met
I was greatly aided in this part of the
investigation by a visit to a well-known
n'f CfS'SS3 1
certain forms of fountains the water
comes in uireci contact wim copper or
Drass utuDgs, wmcn may give rise to
certain amount of carbonate of copper.
Ihe lead, which I found in areater
quantity than copper in the carbonated
waters, is probably derived from tin
lined lead pipe, or from block tin pipes
containing lead, or from the solder used
to solder the joints.
Ihe next matter looked Into was the
source of supply of the water used. It
was found that some bottlers and those
engaged in supplying the trade with
these cylinder fountains use ludgwood
and uroton waters, alter thorough nlter-
iner. while others use water from driven
wells. It is certainly not advisable to
permit the use of well waters for this
DurDOse. although it mav be Questioned
whether the strong solution of carbonic
acid under pressure may not act as an
antiseptio to kill any living putrefactive
or disease germs in the water. This is a
point still under experiment.
The subject is still under investigation
and will be made the subject of another

cided to issue an order making it coni-
milsorv for disoensers of soda water to

various persona None of these contain a single article
which enters Into the composition of S.S.& There
is only one Swift's Specific and there is nothing In tbe
world like it. To prevent disaster and disappointment,
be sure to get the genuine.
Swi't's Specific is a complete antidote to Blood Taint,
Blood Poisoa, Malarial Poison, and Skin Humor.
