BOAT THAT IS INDEED AHPHIBIOUS.
This Is a peculiar boat called "a warping barge" that Is In use on Ilrltlsh
Columbia rivers. Navigation on many of these streams Is obstructed by falls mid
rapids over which It is Impossible for a boat to pass. The Alligator crawls around
these obstructions in the manner shown in the picture. It Is a Ihtt-bottonird
craft with a strong winch and cable In the bow. When It is necessary for the
boat to make a trip overland the cable is carried out ahead and hitched to a tree,
the steam winch is started, and the winding in of the cable pulls the boat ahead.

rowfully; the color was running; It was
ruined. She minded the gown's plight
more than her own.
"What a -pity," she said to herself; "I
was sure that t would wash."
Just then a tall, good-looking young
man appeared at her side.
"Good-morning, Miss Manning," he
said; "pardon me If I offer you my over
coat. You will .catch cold In that thin
gown, I am afraid." '
Lucy drew herself up haughtily. "No,
thank you, I shall do very well as I
nm."
"But I Insist," and Lawrence Fulton
dexterously wrapped the coat around
her. Then be sat down on the same
seat, but so far away as to be almost In
- a puddle. Lucy eyed him furtively,
"I don't care if he does get wet,'
thought she. "Mean thing. I wonder
how he happened to have his overcoat
with him this hot day."
Presently ber conscience began to
trouble her. "Mr. Fulton," she said
"why don't you sit farther over this
way? You are In the wet."
"I am perfectly comfortable, Miss
Manning, thank you."
"That's absurd," answered Lucy,
"You are almost In a puddle."
"It doesn't matter," said Lawrence,
"Nothing matters now," he added, half
under Ids breath. But Lucy heard him
although she gave no sign.
The car sped three blocks, but neither
of the young people said another word,
At Superior street Lawrence arose,
bowed, and left the car.
"Goodness," exclaimed Lucy, almost
aloud, "he has left his overcoat." But
the car was already nt Chicago avenue.
When Lucy arrived at her gettlng-off
place the ram bad ceased. She emerged
from the overcoat a much-bedraggled
object. "I feel like a freak," she said
to herself, impatiently, as she walked
two blocks In her wet and spoiled
finery, with the heavy overcoat on her
arm. The sun had come out again and
added to her misery.
Arrived at home, arrayed in dry gar
ments, and, happily, feeling none the
worso for her wetting, she ruefully
Bnrveyed the overcoat.
"I suppose I must send It back; he
will never como for It after last night."
Sho shook It out, preparatory to fold
ing it, nnd a long white glove fell to the
floor.
"Why, there's the glovo I lost last
winter at tho McDonald's dance," Lucy
cried. "Stupid boy, to take it and car
ry Jt around." But her heart softened
a little. "That' was tho night after ho
asked mo to marry him. O, wo had
such a good time nt that dance."
"Lucy, have you heard the news?"
cried a younger sister, bursting into the
room. "Grace Anderson is engaged to
Mr. Worthy,"
Lucy gasped. "Who told you, Molly?"
"Grace herself. She was hero this
morning. I can't stay to talk now. I
want to tell Frances," nnd tho impetu

"And to think td think that I sent

of the movement is that both employers cipher the addresses on the foreign mall
anu workmen should form their unions matter, even In tho light of years of
and associations on representative lines
under the provisions of the net, and
that all questions should be dealt with
by the unions and societies up to a cer
tain stage, and then brought by them,
and them only, before the boards of
conciliation, and .ultimately, if neces
sary, to the arbitration court.
Tne trade and Industrial unions of
New Zealand are required to comply
with all the ordinary business safe
guards which should surround the cor
porate bodies which they form, and then
but not till then they are registered
by the state and placed In a position to
act and be heard In Industrial disputes.
Penalties are attached to all breaches of
the provisions controlling the unions,
and In some cases to enforce the award

now lu Its tenth year and Is In opera

has proven such a success and is of so
great an advantage In expediting the

service In other vessels.

In a small room below the berth deck

Tho high school department of Pratt

claim, for beside tho ordinary work of

room is a separation table on which
registered packages aro sorted and
which holds a small pair of scales fox
weighing them and stamps for marking
supplementary mall.
One deck below, reached by a narrow
companion way, aro the newspaper
racks-great Iron gridirons with b,i
yawning sacks of canvas suspended be
neath. Into these pouches the third
nnd fourth class mall matter Is thrown
with marvelous precision and rapidity.
A trap d6or In tho third floor leads to
the collar of the floating postotllce, one
deck lower, and hero the bags of mall
are deposited when tho ship leaves port.
