FOLLOWING THE SEA.
At the time of "tbe great earthquake
of flfi," niiid Mr. Swiddlor William
Swiilcilnr, of Calaveras I was at Arlca,
Pom. I have not a map by mo, and am
not certain that Arica is not in Chili, bnt
It can't make much difference; thorn was
earthquake all along there.
Snm Baxter van with us: I think he
bad gone from Sun Francisco to make a
railway or something. On the morning
of the 'quaku, Bam and I had gone down
to the beach to bathe. We had shed our
boon and began to moult, whon there
ira a slight tremor of the earth, an if the
elephant who supports it was pushing
upward, or lying down and getting up
again. Next, the surges, which were
flattening themselves npon the sand and
dragging away such trifles as they could
lay hold of, Ixigan racing out seaward, as
if they had received it dispatch that some
body was not expected to live. This was
needless, for we did not expect to live.
When the aea had receded entirely out
of sight wn started after it, for, it will
be remembered, we bad come to bathe,
and bathing without some kind of water
is not refreshing in a hot climate.
For the first four or five miles the
walking was very difficult, although the
grade was tolerably steep. The ground
was soft; there were tangled forests of
seaweed, old rotten ships, rusty anchors,
hnman skeletons and a multitude of
tilings to impede the pedestrian. The
floundering eliurks bit onr legs as we
toiled past them, and we were constantly
slipping down, upon the flat fish strewn
about like orange peel on a sidewalk.
8am, too, had stuffed his shirt front with
nob a woight of doubloons from tbe
wreck of an old galleon that I had to
help him across all the worst places. It
was very dispiriting,
Presently, away on the western hori
zon, I saw the sea coming back. It oc
curred to me then that it did not wish it
to come buck. A tidal wave is nearly
always wet, au,d 1 was now a good way
from home, with no means of making a
The same was true of 8am, but he did
not appear to think of it in that way.
lie stood quite still a moment with his
eyes fixed on the advancing line of
water; then turned to tne, saying very
"Tell yon what, William, I never
wanted a ship so bud from the cradle to
the gravel I would give m-o-r- for a
hip more than for all the railways and
turnpikes you could scare up! I'd give
more than a hundred, thousand, million
dollars! I would I'd give nil I'm worth
for just one little shipl"
To show how lightly he could part
with his wealth, he lifted bis shirt out
of bis trousers, unbosoming himself of
Ms doubloons, which tumbled about hia
feet, a golden storm
By this ti e the tidal wave was olose
upon os. tad that a wavel It was one
solid green wall of water, higher than
Niagara Falls, stretching as far as we
could see to right and left, without a
aieak in its towering front! It was by
no means clear what we onght to do,
The moving wall showed no projections
ar menus of which the most daring
climber could hope to reacjh the top.
There was no ivy: there were no window
ledges. Stay! there was the lightning
rod! So, there wasn't any lightning
rod. Of course notl
Looking despairingly npward, I mads
a tolerably good beginning at thinking of
all the mean actions I bad wrought in
the flesh, when I saw projecting beyond
the crest of the wave a ship's bowsprit,
with a man sitting on it reading a news
paper! Thank fortune, we were saved!
Falling npon our knees with tearful
gratitude, we got up again and ran ran
as fast as we could, I suspect; for now
the whole forepart of the ship budged
through the water just abovo onr heads,
and might lose its balauoe any moment.
If we bad only brought along our um
brella.! I shouted to the man on the bowsprit
to drop ns a line. He merely replied
that bis oorronpondenoe was already
very onerous, and be hadn t any pen and
Then I told him I wanted to get
aboard. He said I would find on on
the bench, about three leagues to the
south'ard, where the Nanoy Tucker went
At these renlies I was disheartened.
It was not so much that the man with
held assistance as that he made puns.
Presently, howevor, b folded his news
paper, put it oaref uUy away In his nook-
ot, wont and got a line and let it down
to ns just as wo were about to give up
the race. Sam made a luuge at it and
I laid hold of his legs, the end of the
rope was passed abont the capstan, and
as soon as tho men on board had had a
little grog we were hauled up. I can as-'
sure you that it was no fine experience,
to go np in that way, close to the smooth,
vertical front of water, with the whales!
tnmbling out all round and above na
and the sword ns-ies nosing us pointedly i
with vnlgar curiosity. .
We had no sooner set foot on deck,
and got Sam disengaged from the hook,
Sum the purser stepped np with book
and pencil "Ticket, gentlemen."
We told htm he hadn't any tickets,
and ba ordered us to be sot ashore in a
boat. It was represented to him that
this was quite impossible under the eir
ormstanoes; but he replied that he had
nothing to do with oirenmstances did
not know anything about cironrnstanoet.
Nothing would move him till the cap
tain, who was really a kind hearted
man, came on deck and knocked him
overboard. We wore now stripped of
our clothing, ohufod all over with stiff
brusheB, rolled on ourstomochs, wrapped
in flannels, laid before a hot stove in the
saloon and strangled with scaldiug
brandy. We had not been wet, nor had
we swallowed any sea water, but the
surgeon said this was the proper treat
ment. It is uncertain what he might
have done to ns if the tender hearted
captain had not thrashed him into his
cabin and told us to go on deck.
By this time tho ship was passing the
town of Arica, and we were about to
go astern and fish a little, when she
grounded on a hill top. The captain
hove out all the anchors be had about
him, and when tbe water went swirling
back to its legal level, taking the town
along for company, there we were, in the
midst of a charming agricultural oonn
try, but at some distance from any sea
port. At snnrise next morning we were all
on deck. Sum sauntered aft to tbe bin
nacle, cost his eye carelessly npon the
compuss and uttered an ejaculation of
"Tell yon, captain," he called out,
"this has been a direr convulsion of nv
tare than you have any idea. Every
thing been screwed right round. Nee
dle points due south!"
"Why, you lubber!" growled tbe skip
per, taking a look, "it p'iuts d'rectly to
lahbui'd, an' there's the sun dead ahead!"
Sain turned and confronted him with
a steady gaze of ineffable contempt
"Now who said it wasn't dead ahead?
tell me that. Shows how much yon
know about earthquakes. 'Course I
didn't mean just this continent, nor just
this earth. I tell yon, the whole thing's
turned!" From Collected Sketches.
A Raved Man OrlitH for His Bat.
"Yes," said an old lake captain, "
drowning man will catch at a straw. I
have seen many illustrations thereof.
Most people think tbe old proverb is
merely a figure of speech, but it is a liv
"Is it true, captain," was asked, "that
the first thing a rescued man thinks of is
"Yes, sir," replied the captain, his
face lighting up, "that is a fact, too. I
have seen it emphasized many times in
the course of my experience. Over and
over again I have been called to the as
sistance of a drowning mau. I would
plunge in and nv -ne him just, let ns say,
at the lost in-:,mt. Bragged on the
dock, gasping for breath, his voios
choked with water, the man, if he fol
lows hiB instinct, will, as soon as he re
gains the least degree of strength, sud
denly rise from his prostrate posture
and stretch his anus toward his head,
then, missing his hat (usually lost in the
struggle), he will cry out desperately,
pointing to his hat floating down the
river, 'Oh, save my hat! save my hatF"
'And he will never think of himself,
'But seldom, sir," was tbe reply. "A
rescued man is the most obstinate and
headlong being imaginable. He wants to
do all sorts of foolish things. He gener
ally wants to rush up and be away be
fore he has had time to reoover hia
strength. He means well enough, no
doubt, but he nearly always forgets to
present his obligations in tangible farm."

The act of Congress authorising the
examination of the baking powders has
resulted in a most unprecedented com

The tests were marie in the government
laboratory at Washington, and the ottl-
cial report shows that the Royal is supe

of the Koyal Powder and tbe wholesome
ness of its ingredients.

consumers would expect in behalf of

Coming over on the Brooklyn Bridge
oars I saw an aged gentleman wearing a
comf ortable gray shawl wrapped around
his drooping shoulders. Tbe sight was
unusual, though it was quite oommon a
docen or more years ago.
Turning to a well known dry goods
man who sat next to me I asked him,
Do yon have many calls for gentlemen s
shawls nowr "No," he answered. "Onr
firm has not sold a gentleman's shawl in
three years. We do not keep them in
stock any longer. Scaroely anybody
wears them now.
I subsequently asked several other dry
goods men and gentlemen's furnishers
the same question, and from all I received
the same answer. The custom ot shawl
wearing by aged gentlemen has become
almost entirely obsolete. New York
