A Comovillo, Cal., correspoiulont
writes as follows to The Acw lork bun:
For live or six years old l'cto Fergus
has boon the only resident of this
town. Ho was hero lirst and ho is

them aro in wood condition, with win

aro rickotv and tumblo-down.
Tho Comovillo fovor was violent,
and it soon faded away. Of tho twen
ty or thirty mines hero none have over
paid, and during all the tinio that
thoy were worked not enough bullion
was taken out of them to pay for tho
tobacco consumed in tho place, Roto

success of tho minors, lliey cunio

one in town he had an open housn.
When everything in tho natiiro of
mining cea.sod, he still tarried and en
tertained an occasional prospoctor,
and whon oven tho prospectors coaseil
to conio this way lie remained, though
his "help" loft 'him ono by one until
ho was alone. He now manages to
mako his own living in some way,
and exists to a largo extent on his
faitli that there are great days in store
for Comovillo yet.
Walking through thodesorted camp
yesterday with this aged man, ho en
tertained a parly of tourists with a
running comment on tho history of
the place and on a few of tho more
important events in its career. Tho
day was a brilliant one. Tho sun
shone bright and warm, tho air was
delightfully soft, and the frowning
mountain poaks in tho distance made
iv picturesque background for tho
rambling and dilapidated village.
"Th's here place," tho old man said,
pointing to a woathor-boalcu shanty,

in with 10,000 in cool cash and blow

Boys, yo who' want to run away and

of tlio wheelman is all mist. I didn't
notice in tho pilot-house a siuglo novel
or a lazy back-chair. But I did uotioo
that if a wheelman was wanted, tho

the man said nothing about "Yes, sir,
I'll bo there in a minute," or "wait till

and taking his partner's place, hold it

ry no cabin boys; the cook is tho best
they can atl'ord in this line. But then
thero are tho sailors, tho mon witli
pretty blue blouses, with anchors tit
the shoulders, they who wear jaunty
hats oyer one ear, "lav out 011 the
yard-arm," who sloop in hammocks,
anil who sing:
1 hiii a jolly tnr, am I,
An free ns 11 11 1 icuu bird.
Thoro aro those men, surely? No,
my son; on the great lakes those noblo
men are scarcer than mountains in the
Sahara dosort. Tho re mav be n few
sailors of this stamp 011 tho stage, but
that's the only place you'll llnd '0111.
The lakes are sadly doticlont. Those
who correspond nearest to sailors ou ti
steamship are tho deck-hands, who
nre 11 sorry lot. All the dook-hands I
over saw looked pretty much aliko
nu old pair ot troupers, one suspender,
nu old lint aud 11 alurt. And as for
work 1 hate to say so- but the cap
tain or mate never seemed quite cou
teutod unjesi Le had (huao ideal fol-
lows sticking their hand in tar-buckota
or paint-pote, or making them scrapo
down masts, tnr down rigging or such
liko inviting tasks. Tho dock-hands
of tho lakes are coal-heavers and cargo-
handlers, and aro, as a rule, driven to
work and watched liko children, who
soldom keep a placoovor ono trip, and
who havo been known to como nboard
a steamer, cat a couplo ol hearty
meals and then run away.
But thero arc tho matos? Correct,
thero aro. Matos aro mon who havo
sailed years and years, and who, for
being steady and principled, havo
been rewarded with a placo of impor
tance, to bo sure, but one having in it
all tho todiotis work of a deck-hand
and the responsibility of a captain. A
mate, beside standing watch, has tho
immediate supervision of this moan,
tedious work aforesaid, and in manv
cases its porformanco also.
But, after all, it is tiic captain of tho
lake vessel who fares tho hardest. Ho
must ho up, day or night, conning
through the rivers and wherever thero
is Iho least difficult navigation. Ho
has sometimes to bo up lifty hours on
a watch. Ho has to seo out every
piece of bad weather if it lasts a day or
a week. 1 nts is part ot ins responsi
bility. I hen, perhaps, he has twonty
odd " lives on his hands, a $250,000

tions. On all stoaniers captains, no
matter what their ngo or dignity, aro
