The Rig of the Tiller Ropes Often
a Source of Danger.
A CURIOUS LACK OF SYSTEM.
On Some Vessels the Chains Are Cross
ed, and on Others Thay Are Straight,
and This May Mean Serious Trouble
With a Strange Hand at ths Wheel.
A bronzed pilot was carefully uurs
Ing a bijj Atlantic liner through the
murk and confusion of early morning
and Innumerable passing craft up the
crowded waters of New York bay. The
ship was crowded with passengers,
most of whom bad risen betimes to
watch their homecoming. A tense ex
pression, brought on by the tremendous
responsibility, cast Its grim lines over
the pilot's face as he turned Into the
lower Iludson river and saw a dense
fofbank creeping down from the Pal
isades. Three miles still to go, and
3,000 lives In his hands! Slowly he
crept along, almost touching a ferry
load of commuters. Just skipping a
triple tow of sand scows, threading
his way through the maze of vessels

more dense, making it impossible to
see the shadow of nearlng craft more
than a couple of lengths away.
Suddenly a departing liner, just

"Crossed chains straight chains?"
What does this mean? It means this
that there is no invariable rule or sys
tem of arranging the tiller ropes on
vessels so that the latter always move
in the same direction in response to a
similar turn of the wheel. If equipped
with "crossed chains" the craft will
turn the opposite way; If with
"straight chains' the wheel must be
turned in the same direction the vessel
is desired to go. Most ocean vessels
ire equipped with straight chains,
Jiougb this is by no means an Invari
able custom. Sailing craft may be and
ire fixed either way. On the other
band, harbor boats, including tow
boats, tugs, etc., generally have crossed

Such-Incidents as these nre by no
means rare in navigating experience.
hough fortunately serious accidents
:herefrom are uncommon either be
;ause of a benignant fate watching
iver befuddled men at the wheel or
3ecause they instinctively follow the

;hat n real seaman's instinct will al

A more common danger, ns far as
:be general public is concerned. Is the
juiversal lack of unity in arranging
ho steering apparatus on motorhoats.
Most of these craft are exceedingly
small, and the tiller ropes nre put in
it the beginning of every season by
he owners themselves, to suit their
ran particular notions. So. in every
lotilla will be seen steering gear of
very description, from simple tillers
o elaborate brass mounted wheels, the
after with either crossed or straight
hnins. as Individual fancy may die

jwner or one used to the craft Is nt

eported In such circumstances. But

American characteristic. What Is mis
taken for quickness is a kind of nerv

finitely restless and nervous. It la
shown In his passion for dolus many
things at once. The bnrhi-r shop, a
thlug characteristically American, af
fords a wonderful example of this sub
stitution of restlessness and circum
stance for real rapidity aud economy
of time. The business man. still In
his dramatic charueter of a locomotlva
pressed for time, hurries Into the bar

chair, feet and hands outspread, a
bootblack engaged on each boot, a
manicurist on each hand aud the bar

It is time simply wasted, from a

It is spent in sheer luxury. For the

sense of luxury in everything that ap
pertains to washing and care of the

that triumph In the achievement of

ANIMALS WITH HANDS.
Kangaroos Are Fond of Using Their
Fore Feet In Feeding.
Kangaroos use their hands very read
ily to hold food iu and to put it into
their mouths. As their fore legs are so
short that they have to browse in n
stooping position, they seem pleased
when able to secure a large bunch of
cabbage or other vegetable provender
and to hold it in their hands to eat.
Sometimes the young kangaroo, look
ing out of itr mother's pouch, catches
one or two of the leaves whiqh the old
oue drops, und the pair may be setn
each nibbling at the salad held iu their
hands, oue, so to speak, "one floor"
above the other.
The slow, deliberate clasping and
unclasping of a chameleon's feet look
like the movements which the hands of
n sleep walker might make rwere he
trying to creep downstairs, fhe cha
meleon's are almost deformejj hands,
yet they have n superficial restfmblance
to the feet of parrots, which more thau
other birds use their feet for many of
the purposes of a hand when feeding.
To see many of the smaller rodents
ground squirrels, prairie dogs and, mar
mots hold food, usually in both paws,
is to learn a lesson in the dextrous use
of hands without thumbs.
Nothing more readily suggests the
momentary Impression that a pretty
little monkey is "a man and a brother"
than when he stretches out his neat lit
tle palm, fingers and thumb and, with
all the movements proper to the civi
lized mode of greeting, insists on shak
ing hands. London Graphic.

The packer gave him a hasty glunce.
"Well, what the blankety-blnnk-blank
do you want?" he growled.
"1 want civil treatment, aud I want
(t bluukety-blank-blauk quick," came
the sharp answer.
"OhI" The packer looked up in sur

he asked, "What can I do for you?"
"I want a Job as a salesman. I have
Torked as a butcher, I hare worked
In the packing houses, and I have sold
smaller lines to tbe meat trade. I have
references to prove that I deliver the
goods, and I have them with me. I

am here to make good. Have you got

"If we haven't we'll make an open

As the young man started to leave
the office the brusque old packer called
"Do you know why you got that
Job?" be asked.
"Well, you have the three essentials
that make a good salesman. I'll point
them out to you, so you'll remember
'em. First, you don't think any man is

THE POLE STAR.
Some of the Wonders of This Great
Beacon of the North.
Most people, if they know nothing
else of astronomy, at any rate know
the pole star, the one star which seems
to keep Its place lu the heavens wlth
Dut movement of any kind. There are
i great many, however, who do not
know what a wouderful thing it is. In
the first place, it can be seen when
looked at through a good telescope to
be two stars and not one. There is one
fairly bright one. of what is kuown as
the second magnitude, and another of
the ninth magnitude close to It
But that is not all. The brighter of
the two is really three stars revolving
round one another, or rather round
their common center of gravity, like
three children playing "ring a ring o'
roses." This secret is revealed to us
by what is perhaps the most astonish
ing of all scientific instruments, the
spectroscope. It not only tells us what
he stars are made of, but whether
they are moving toward us or away
When you stand facing the star you
are always facing north. The reason
that it does not appear to meve ns the
ot hers do is because It is nearly in line
with the nxis of the earth. Its distance
from us is enormous. This can be
judged from the fact that although the
earth in its Journey round the sun Is
today about VJO.0OO.000 miles from
where it was six months ago. that
makes no appreciable difference to its
distance from the pole star. It must
