their hair hanging in long streamers down
their backs, while the young men would
fteize those beautiful tresses for reins
and drive the fair women with imitation

after the war was over these women, to
whom philanthropy had become a busi

we should help the south. We went to

some very good works, producing plays
which were not stumbled through, bat

The money we made we sent to the cler

pleasure to save the lives of sick chil

their poor mothers could otherwise have
procured. We used to receive most touch

There is little doubt that the American
ehip is much better built than the foreign
vessel. This may be rightly attributed to
the fact that the United States government
is very rigid in its requirements. All con
tracts must; be lived up to, and that the
builder may be encouraged in his work pre
miums ait: paid where the official test de
velops greater horsepower and more speed,
or where the requirements of the contract
have been more than met. The govern
ment will not accept a vessel not up to the
specifications. Builders know this and are
accordingly prepared for it.
A an illustration in point take the case
of the Vesuvius, The contract called for
8,300 horsepower, and she would have to de
velop a speed of 20 knots. In the official
trial this vessel actually developed 4,440
horsepower and attained a speed of 31 04-100
knots from a measured 4-mile course, of
course as a result earning for her builder a
large premium. The case of the Blake,
English built, whose contract called for
!&r,0U horsepower, illy compares with this
showing. The best effortw of her engineers
and builders could only briug out a little
over 16,000, and under this tremendous
train her boilers went to pieces. The same
statement is true, although in a worse de
gree, of the failure of her sister ship, the

An Old Custom.
The custom of fastening rags, shreds and
such worthless votive offerings to bushes
which grow near holy wells and springs
which were noted for health giving proper
ties, though now obsolete, once flourished in
huglandandScotland. Near to Newcastle,
in the suburb of Benwell, a well which was
once famous for such gift still exists. The
practice is not unknown to Ireland. In
oVM it survives in all countries where Ro
man Catholicism flourishes, which is not
surprising when it is borne iu mind that
the Ho mis h church had a special prayer for
blessing ciouto used for the cure of diseases.
At Wierre Effroy in France, where the

A well known physician recently
published an account of the experi

resort. Here is a part of the story ;
"The patient in question was suf

no tuberculosis to be traced in his im

He went to a health resort at a high
altitude to recuperate. He boarded
at a hotel in which numerous con
sumptives were coughing and expec
torating; four months afterward he
developed tuberculosis and now has
a typical case of pulmonary phthi

A most remarkable incident has oc
curred at the City hospital It is the
custom there every afternoon at 8 o'clock
for one of the clerks to visit the various
wards and tell the patients who are able
to go home that tbey are discharged
Several days ago the clerk entered 11
ward, and walking to the aide of Henry
Juelg'a cot said: "Yon can go out today.
Your name is on the discharge list."
Juelg, who was suffering from heart dis
ease, leaned npon his elbow, and turn
ing to Dr. Wolf, who was standing near
by, asked in an anxious tone, "Doctor,
am I discharged?" "Why, no," was the
answer, "yon are not well enough." Be
fore the physician could utter another
word the patient dropped back dead.
A Ball of wIm PIoIimI Up at Sm.
Captain Chad wick of the schooner Henry
Souther of Thomaston, Me., lying at Wood
all's shipyard in Baltimore, possesses a
ball of twine which has a history. One
morning in September, on a voyage from
Brunswick, 6a,, to an eastern port, Captain
Chadwiok noticed a string flying out from
the rnizien mast of bis vessel about the
eroastrees. It extended as for aa tbe eye
could follow it above the water. A man
was sent aloft to pull in the string, and
after it was all gathered aboard It made a
large ball of manilla twine.
At tbe time tbe string was discovered the
nearest land was 85 miles distant. As such
twine was not used on the Souther, Captain
Chadwiok was puzzled to account for it
presenoe. The only solution was that It
bad been used to fly a kite or a captive bal
loon, which bad escaped, and that it had
been blown across the Chadwick'a most.
