WHEN PILOTS WERE PRINCES.
Rfclsrtvt Once . - i i, mil to Thoss nf
Modern Hnlln-ay rrctltlents.
Very interest inn are the reminiscences
from stsnm boatmen of nnte rate cutting
days, when pilots received wages enough
iti a week to buy an entire steamboat at
the present quotations on secondhand
boats. "Money easily earned Is ensily
spent," and Captain Joe Todd tells of the
pilot who received sy.no for a triptotlio
upper Missouri, and then "came down in
the winter to borrow money from uh poor
fellows who worked for 178 a month. "
Several of these old river pilots, whose
vocations entitled them to the largest div
idend of the robust earnings of the boats,
are still about the city , but unfortunati ly
very few now give evidence nf ever having
commanded such tnagnitleent salaries.
The Missouri river appears to have been
thesceneol optVAtloDt In wli;ch "meteor
ic" wages were pnid to pilots. The elocu
tionary artists who are "doing time"

old time pilots' m:c as nigh as 16,000
month (without producing pp.ni-,.
From those who were uctiveix engaged
In the service it is learned that . rt Ki a
mont h was t he highest refill ir wages ever
paid to Missouri river pilots. Pilots, how
ever, were frequently engaged for a trip to
Leavenworth, Sioux City and Fori Sully at
wnges proportionately higher than these
Captain William It Massey. a veteran
Missouri river steambn.it man. stated yes
terday that he had often known fl.. .00 to
be paid to a pilot on a trip between St.
Louis and Omnhn, occupying from IS to II!
The palmy days for steamboat ing on the
Missouri river were from 1M4 to 1WS0, in
which the pilots were paid salaries like
those of railroad presidents at the present
day. bin spent their money about 10 times
its fast. A well known steamboat man in
St. Louis now is said to have been offered
a one fourth interest in a steamboat, val
ued at about sW.OOO, by one of the Doziers
for wages as pilot on a trip to Fort Ilenton.
Fifteen hundred dollars was also frequent
ly paid for piloting a boat from St. Louis
to Leavenworth and back, occupying about
nine days. - F.xchange.

A sea bath is to must persons exceedingly
agreeable and refreshing, says an expert,
and. when judiciously employed, a nmlie
inal agent of great value; but, like all oi her
inediciual agents.it may Is-productive of
good or bad results, depending Upon the
condition of the one who takes the bat hand
his manner of taking it. To the convales
cent, impatient for delayed strength: tothe
inland dweller whose devotion to business
pursuits or housewifely cares lias resulted
in feeble health and nervous bankruptcy,
and to all overworked in mind and body,
no measure, when discreetly used, so surely
brings vigor and rest as a sojourn at the
seashore and a daily plunge into the salt
water. Though not every one's experience
in sea bathing hit been agreeable, and per
haps tosomc it lias proved posit iveiy harm
ful, it can be asserted that in nearly all
such cases the unsatisfactory results are
due to some indiscretion of the bather or
misconception of the principles that should
guide one in resorting to sea baths for san
Sea bathing is a more powerful tonic
tliau the ordinary cold bath. The stimula
tion of the cutaneous surface by the dis
solved salt, the changing and cooler cur
rents of air, the impact of the waves upon
the body and the mental effect of the un
usual surroundings combine to press the
system very forcibly. While such condi
tions may nave a depressing effect upon
one who is unaccustomed to them, tbev are
highly bracing and stimulating to him who
is strong enough to make sea burning safe.
A Treatment For Headache.
A treatment recommended by M. Dour
doukl of Moscow has the merit of being
both original and simple. While exauiin
ing one day a patient complaining of atro
ciOUl headache he used percussion of the
cranium, jost as is done for the chest, to
ascertain whether there was any apparent
material lesion. Two or three minutes aft
er finishing his examination he was greatly
astonished to hear his patient say that his
headache bad completely disappeared. This
method of treatment has succeeded in his
hands whenev er t here was no material cause
The percussion must be made lightly
with only one or two lingers, without pro
ducing any disagreeable sensation, but u
creasing grail null v t he intensity of the tapi
In t his way a sort of vibratory massagfl is
administered, whieh rvuiovts the distress
ing symptom. It is evident that tbls relief
can only In- momentary and thai the eaiist
must be discovered in order to lie sure to
cure the headache The same means is efti
cacious in muscular pain in nervous, im
pressionable people. It U at SnT rate easy to
try. and, according to the old saving, cau't
do any harm, even if it don't cure. Xew
i iirtiiic Condemned i
The habit of what is called flirting, which
some young men and women Indulge in, is
severely condemned by The People's Jour
nal: It is t h rough flirtal ion, Inch has ad vane
ed to something like a line art. that many
marriageable young folks lose their chance
in life. Flirtation destroys confidence be
tween the persons who indulge in it; it
prevent the natural growth of mutual es
teem; it is not a lliingof good faith. It is
an error to suppose that loveinakiug and
flirtation are identical; they are, in truth,
antithetical. Lovemaking is tender anil
ennobling, while flirtation Is cruel, foolish
and demeaning, The one is the prelude to
wedded happiness, the ot her is inimical to
it. Young men and w omen should exercise
their reason while on the lookout for suit
able life partners, yet many of them give
encouragement to flitters, silly dieters, who
are takeu no or thrown off, wiili results
that are often grievous Indeed.
