'I nking women's work In general, the
following are some reasons why wom
en's wages are less than men's:
First.--Women have a practical mo
nopoly of a great many of the more
unskilled anil poorly paid Industrial oc
ciipfilloiis ns, for example, the gar
Second.- Women are In a large mena.
tire aupplemeiital wage earners, many
of them being partially maintained out
of incomes other than their own.
Third.--Women usually look forward
to marriage and conseueutly do not
take the pains to leurn an occupation
Fourth. The supply of female labor
la large In proportion to the demand.
Fifth.- I'hyalcal disability makes the
labor of women often less even, con
tinuous anil excellent and therefore of
leas value than that of nieu.
SERIES OF SHIPWRECKS.
Tt- Most Slnaular Chain of Marine
AiM'Idrnta on Itrcord.
The most singular scrlca of ship
wrecks on record began with the loss
of the ICuu'lish merchantman Mermaid,
which -was driven on the rocks of Tor
res strait In October. lH'j'.t. The officer
and crew clung to the shuttered vessel,
which was held fast Umii u sunken
ledge, until, a few minutes before the
doomed ship went to pieces, a passllig
frigate picked thi-tn up.
The Swlftsure, us the latter craft
was culled, resumed her northward
course, to be foundered In a terrific
gale tiin-c days later.
Hit combined crews were saved by
the warship Coventor Keady. en voy
age to India, May IH, is;in. The lust
named, overtaken by a storm, waa
stranded on a barren const, her three
crews to a man succeeding In reach
ing the hhore.
After stuyli'g a week on the luhos
pltubfe'"lslalul they were tukcti ofT by
the revenue cutter Comet, which u few
days Inter Hpriiug a leak )md sunk In
spite of all efforts to save her.
Fort una tely a rescue ship was ogalu
oil bund, the four crews being saved
by the Jupiter.
F.vcn then, however, the chain of dis
asters was not broken, for the Jupiter
Just us she was entering the harbor of
l'ort ltuille turned turtle and went
down wltti scarcely a moment's warn
lit!,'. Her crews barely escaped with
their lives, to be picked up by boat
sent to their uid.
Thus the crew of tho Mermaid was
wrecked live times In one voyage, that
of the Swlftsure four times, of the
Coventor Heady three times nnd the
The rescues bad beeu purely acciden
tal lu every case, none of the ships
having liecn sailing its a consort or

Though tho weutlier had been tem
pestuous and tho escapes barely made,
not ft life had been lost.
lu n tuedlaevul German talo It says
that the parish council of a small vil
lage met one evening to discuss cer

watchman entered tho room quietly,
placed In o' corner his lantern and
spear and sat down to listen to the ar
gument. Suddenly a councilman turn
ed to him fiercely.
"Fritz." he cried, "what are you doing
here? Who Is to watch that nothing la

Fritz, with nn easy smile, nuswered:
"Who Is vthero to steitl anything? We
