THE CIGAIUTTTK IIA1IIT.
The Capital Jouiinal'b news
colunuib yesterday contulncd the
Bad information tliut a young man
at Philomath was "lying in a criti
cal condition, the result of the ex
cessive smoking of cigarettes."
And only a few weeks ago a case
came under our notice of a Salem
young man who wagered iv friend
that lie could smoke so many cigar
ettes in h certain limited time. The
number was appalling, but he
smoked them. Ho won tlio wager
and lost his life. A sickness fol
lowed this foolish act, from which
dentil nlono could relievo him.
Pertinent to theso deplorable facts
we remark that the growing evil of
cigarette-smoking by boys is one
which ought to bo counteracted in
every possible way. A BobIoii pa
per states that near its ollleo is a
boys' school into which the
bright young fellows troop every
morning with their books in a strap,
and give each other a Jolly greeting
us they meet and that as they come
out of school, a few hours later,
many of them stop at the door, pull
out their bunch of cigarettes, from
which one is selected, and then
start away, pulling tlio smoko from
the mouth and nostrils,
The use of tobacco in any form
is bad enough, audit is a constant
wonder why every boy smokes at
least once in his life. Hut cigarette
smoking is regarded by thoe who
know of what material the cigarette
is made, as the most objectionable
way In which tho poisonous weed
can bo used. In several states laws
havo been parsed against the sale
of cigarettes and tobacco to minors
uedcr sixteen, but to a largo extent
they aro dead letters. There are too
many adult smokers among the
nion whoso duty It is to enforce tho
statute.". If tho father smokes, the
boy will Ifhucan. Against the to
bacco, as the drink ovll oxamplo
mid precept go hand in hand.
Dr. William A. Hammon says it
is a poison to your boys. Excessive
smoking will sow tho seeds of dls
U80 which will develop In later
years. If a boy begins to smoke
u great deal early in life tho
etleots on his luxjy will, by alllnlty,
reach his mind; he will lose energy
nnd steadiness of purpose and will
become tl vacllating, weak man un
lit for tho struggle of life. Cigarette-smoking
Is llko whlsky-drlnk-lng,
tlio nppetlto increases )ust in
proportion as tlio body becomes un
able to bear it. Cigarette-smoking
induces a condition ot tho heart ami
digestive organs which may cause
death at any time. Tho eftecta may
not Iw notleeablo for years in a man.
Now let tho old ohronlo growlors
dry up. Could any desire bettor
weather hi December? Just think
of it; no snow, hills green, humla'ds
of plows running all over the coun
try, llaxen-hnlred children playing
out doors bareheaded. Men tiro
working out doors in their shirt
HleovoH and sweating at that; light
frtwt at night. Think of this and
then think of the "wild waves," tho
bllrtiird'S cyclones and big snow
liloektuies of tho eastern htatos!

There nro more young men In the
penitentiaries In tho country learn
ing trades than there nre outside of
them. The principal cause of this
Is that wo are educating our young
men for Idle gentlemen, trying to
make lawyers, preachers, doctors
nnd clerks out of material that is
needed for blacksmiths, carpenters,
machinists and other honest" hew
ers of wood and drawers of water."
It is nmlstake, and n big one, to
teach boys and girls that labor is
disgraceful, and to do nothing for a
livinir is more becoming the society
in which they have to move and
have respect. Hang men society!
It is rotten to the core and is ruining
our country to-day, and there are
many sons and daughters who are
now being educated to play the part
of "leading lady" and "walking
gentleman" in the great drama of
life who will light out for the poor
house or penitentiary before the
curtain drops on the last sad act of
the play to which they have been
educated by their too indolent par
The phonograph, that wonderful
Invention about which the world
has read for years, and for which
it has waited so long, Is at lost
ready for the world's practical use.
The old phonograph, inado for ex
hibition only, which could only
squeak, has been seen in years gone
by, but now the modern perfected
instrument has arrived, ready to
enter at once Into business and so
cial life. Its inventor claims that
it will mako wonderful changes in
tho methods of business life, bring
a long train of now delights to prl
vute and sociul life, and prove in a
practical way that it can do tho
long list of extraordinary things
which Edison has asserted for It.
Somo weeks ago tho announcement
was made that tho phonograph was
at last perfected, and would soon be
placed on tho market. Since that
timo the company owning tho pat
ents has been rushing preparations
for its wholesale manufacture, and
arrangements have been made for
placing it before tho public simulta
neously in all tho leading cities of
tho United .States. This will bo
done in about two weeks.

A tally presented herself to St. Philip

into this fault?" inquired he. "Yes,
father, very often," replied the penitent.
"My dear child," said Phillip, "your fault

to the nearest market, and purchase a
chicken just killed, and still covered with

Accordtug she repaired to the market,
bought the fowl, and set out on the jour

had been ordered to do. In a short time

MATE AND ROUSTABOUT.
HOW FREIGHT -IS HANDLEDATSTJ
Scene at tho River Front A Steamer's
Crew Qualifications of a Mate Life of
a Roustabout Punching the Slow and
Statistics for last year's commerce in St.
Louis shows tho arrival o'f 2,3(51 boats and 1,273
barges at, and tho departure of 2,323 boats
from, this port, and the receipt of 807,045
tons and the shipment of fr7,0C0 tons of
freight, all exclusivo of the Immense tonnage
transferred by ferry, and yet the river bos
lost interest, and by many Is entirely for
gotten. All this Is very undeserved Life
on the river and in tho harbor hus all of its
Tho timo has been when tho river front
was lined with steamers, noso to the. wharf,
while now they can crowd In so as to load
from the side, but the sceno now is none tho
less active. Tho wonder is just ns great now
wbero tho great piles of freight are stowed
away, and thero Is Just as much commotion
In loading ami unloading. People with tender
corns nro just as safe in remaining away
from a steamer just In or preparing to leave
portns they ever were. Thoy aro just 03 apt
to havo a barrel rolled on theso name corns,
or to feel tho weight of a roustabout's No. 12
A largo steamer's crow Is composed of a
captain, two mates, two engineers, two
strikers, six firemen, a watchman, threo
clerks, a b toward and ten to twenty assist
ants and a deck forco of twenty to forty. Of
theso tho mate alono has to push and ham
mer when timo Is valuable, except on extra
ordinary occasions and except in the quiet
of his own precincts, where only tho boards
of the boat and those people for whom his
words aro Intended will hear them. The first
mato bos chargo of the loading and unload
ing, and in tho absence of tho captain takes
command of the boat. A steamer like the
City of New Orleans, for instance, will carry
1,600 tons of freight very comfortably. The
mato must load and unload this in a very
short time, as occasion often requiros, but,
regardless of tho time in which tho work
must bo dono, bo must look after any weak
points in tho boat and follow all rules laid
down for tho even distribution of a cargo. If
a steamer has any weak points, they must bo
loaded first. Otberwiso, the mato begins
back aft and loads forward in tho center,
following this rulo In tho hold and on deck,
and being careful to keep tho weight in tho
center. Then he runs out into the wings and
along the sides, always keeping the weight
so evenly distributed that tho steamer will
settle down Into the water as nicely as if
under tho pressure of a single piece of ma
chinery at all points. At tho same time the
freight is loaded with duo regard to points
of unloading, so thut there will not only not
be any rohandling, but no strain caused by
removing freight from ono point and not
Tho mate must havo a clear, cool head, and
bo a man of somo oxecutlvo ability Even
in an outburst of passion, ho must keep bis
wits about him. He is at something of a dis
advantage in not always having the same
forco to do his work, und thus in not know
inp his men's capacities, for oven day labor
ers havo such things as capacities. 'One man
may lift 300 pounds and another stall at 160.
but tho latter may bo so much more active
that bo will move mora gross weight In half
an hour than tho former This is an object,
and in handling men it is of importance to
consider it. Tho mate, however, soon esti
mates his men. At local landings bo has
only hit regular crow, but in all large ports
he has what is known as shore or hour labor.
These do all tho loading and unloading. The
deck crow attends only to keeping things In
trim. If tho steamer is just in, they are tired
out, and that is enough for tbem to da
Tho roustabout gonerolly seems to have a
happy life, and he posslhly has. There is no
reason to doubt appearances, except the idea
ono not accustomed to it would havo in an
ticipating it. In port and off duty he is a
painter, generally that is, he docs a great
deal toward making things in his vicinitj
lurid, by "making Rome howL" When he
sleeps, if he sleeps nt all, is often a conun
drum, though ho must sleep some place It
is, however, often "with n load ou," and ho
s fortunate if bo turns up foi duty with a
hido free of scratches nnd bruises It Is not
infrequent that hi turns up at the hospital or
thb morgue. Thero nre, however, good
roustabouts, just as there are had church
men. Tho lifo is not ouo calculated to make
them good, but that nuvor seems to trouble
them whllo ou duty, und they never seem to
realize that thoy haven't had a good timo
and get on nhoro to warm up and see their
friends. In tho average steamboat, no pro
vision is made for tho rousters' sleeping.
Thoj an expected to curl up on deck or
among the freight, mid make tlio licst of it.
They aro also expected, on night runs, to
turn out as promptly as soldiers on duty
when a landing Is mado. Still they laugh
and sing the timo away, and "guy" each
other in a manner that should bo profitable
to shons people.
A wealthy twsscnger looking ovor the rail
and seeing tho colored deck hand leaning on
the capstan, smoking a pipe, naturally won
der what pleasures tho world has for him.
Tho deckhand turns and looks up, and the
passenger is surprised that his face bears as
contented a smile as his own, and probably
moro so. The shore laborer U, if anything',
mora ot a curiosity It Is a question if he is
any tougher, because, having moro opportu
nities tor -aoing inings up orown," the act
of doing it is not so mueb of a novelty. Be
will sleep any place, however, Just as tht
deckhand dooa, and is as free to laugh and
jofco when he has a 200-pound box on bis
shoulder as when he has nothing but a few
surplus drinks. The mate, though, looks out
for this, and If he jokes or tho laughter in
terferos with or delay the work, or if, to get
