What Johnny Had.
As a reward for good behavior
Johnny was allowed to come to the
dinner table when companfly was ex

too, so he chose a lowv chair, which
brought his mouth just to the top
of the tablo. But he didn't mind
this, because it was on a line with
his plate, anid he was not so likely
to drop iinythiing while eating. He
ate ravenously of everything, having
notliug to say to the guests, as his
mother had told him to remember
that good children arc seen, not
heard. Finally after (dessert, when
there was a lull in the conversation,
"Say, p)op, you can't guess what
I've got under the table."

THE KING GEORGE.
In the Deadly Wake of tho Famous Old
Sn. r yoil happen to be so for
tunate as to take a trip) down the
west coast of Africa you'll be sure to
hear of the famous old West India
man, King George. This yarn is
backed up by the records of the
British aidmiralty, so of course it is
true. Shc was wrecked in the year
1789 during a hurricane that dev
astated the coast of Cuba and the
West Indies generally. Every man,
woman and child aboard of her was I
lost, and the ship herself was strip
ped of her top hamper, masts and
spars and went drifting, a helpless
wreck, "bawd to all disaster." '
She was first reported by a ship
of the same company some hundred i
miles north of the point where the i
storm is supposed to have struck c
her. Men were sent aboard her
from her sister Indiaman and re
ported that she was sinking rapidly.
After that she was never completely
lost to sight for the best part of five t
years. when she vanished in a storm
off the Grand Canaries. In that
time she hard drifted upward of 10,
000 .mils and h:Ad beel the direct
cause of at least four wrecks and the I
indirect cau.4e of three imiore. e
Hl[er travels were strange enough,
epially at that time, when the lo- i
cations of the ocean current-s were
but vaguely guessedt at by tile most
speculative of mariners. She jour
leved northward n4id eastward from V
the gulf of Mexico to the British 6
isles ind then, making a long curve; t
to the west coast of AMrica. Dl-uring
all Ia it time she wa coin ant(ly re- t
porIed hl sing shbips, m1any of
which sent ilen aboard of her. At I
last the British government dis- 3
patched a man-of-war after her, t
with orders to blow her up. Tu
stead tile fri: e ran onI a reef und
was wrecked.- Another, the Dla.phine,
was then sent out, but she encoun
tered a slaving dhow and was sunk
in the eusuing fight.
By this time the whole English
speaking seafaring world was agog
over the mystery. .When a third
warship was dispatched and in her
turn ran high and dr on the beach
superstition. had its way, and the
King George was allowed to proceed
on her ghostly path in peace. She
was reported a few times after that
by passing merchantmen, then dis
appeared for good and all in a tor
nado that destroyed much beside the
derelict. But her name is .t ill a
thing to conjure with in some parts
of the world.-New York Herald.
