Every one of these doors creaks so

exclaimed a tired housekeeper, who win

It is a great deal easier to make sug

seems to me that tho "golden ntle" for
housekeeper might be this; "If any

there is absolutely no remedy do not

The galley, a long, low, narrow ves
sel of war, having sails, but chiefly
propelled by rows of oar on each side,
was ued as a part of the f eet of f.11
maritime nations from the earliest his
toric time down to near the close ot
the eighteenth century. The vessel
ilrcw but little water and was especially
convenient for coast service; but the
advancement in the art of navigation,
and especially the Improvements In
gunnery, at last put an end to this das
of ship, which, it was said, "had domi
nated the maritime world for over throe
thousand years." In th most ancient
times to row in the galleys was consid
ered honorable; but as the work was
very laborious and it was difficult to pro
cure voluntary recruits for it, the ancient
nations used to put their pnoners ot
War to this service. Then it be-
came customary to condemn criminals
to the work. In tho middle ages the
galley rowers were convict and infidel
prisoners, wh wero chained to the
lienchcs. The Turk retaliated, and
put captured Christians to the same
lalor. In r ranee, Spain and the
Italian republics during the sixteenth
and seventeenth oenturies the galley
were used as the means of punishment
for all criminals; even those who had
committed capital crimes were thus
utilized Heretics were particularly
sought out for this purpose, and in
Franco vagrants, beggar, poachers,
etc, wore employed, and, as even all
these did not sullice to man the benches,
slaves wero bought from the Turk,
negroes were brought from fJuinea,
and In. linns were kidnaped in the New
World. Galley slaves were ibjectcd
to the greatest Indignities and cruellies.
Their heads and faces were shaved,
they were always chained to thoir
benches, and tlmy rowed entirely
naked, being only allowed to wear
clothing whon in port They wera
seldom released, even whe.i t;ioir time
of service was accomplished. Henry
IV. ordered tho captains of nil galleys
to rc'a:ii prisoi'a s for six year, even
although condemned for a shorter time,
and under Louis XIV. g-illey slaves
sentenced for only two or thr.e years
were often retained for fifteen years
and more. Criminal preferred mutila
tion and even death to labor In tho
galleys. The galleys In France were
abolished In 171. They had been
