Facts About Men Who Mini KiiRlniul's
A return of the number, ages,
ratings and nationalities of the sea
men employed on the3ist of March,
igoi, is issued in the form of a
Blue Book in London. The sta
tistics have been prepared from
lists of crews and other documents
in the charge of the registrar-general
of shipping seamen, with a
view to showing the number, ages
aud ratings aud nationalities of
seamen employed on a given day
namely, the 31st of March, on sea
going vessels, except yachts, reg
istered under Part 1 of the mer
chant shipping act, 1894, in the
British island. They do not show
the total number oi seamen who
follow the sea service in connection
with the registered seagoing vessels.
The summary constitutes the third
quinquennial "census of seamen thus
employed, a census having pre
viously been taken on the 5th of
April, 1891, and on the 25th of
March, 1896. An increase which
is shown in the number of seamen
on trading vessels consists entirely
of I,ascars and foreign seamen.
During the ten years from 1891 to
1901 the number of Lascars in
creased by 12,288, and foreign sea
men by 8730. In the same period
British seamen (included those born
at sea, and those whose birthplaces
were not stated), decreased in muif
her by 7155.
Assuming that Kuglatid, Scot
land and Ireland now supply the
number of seaffren in the same pro
portion as they supplied those em
ployed on March 31, 1901, it would
appear that, in proportion to their
population, England supplies not
quite so many seamen as Ireland
aud only about half the number
supplied by Scotland. The seamen
of the various nationalities are dis
tributed among the ratings in very
different proportions. There is a
large perccntagj of petty officers
aud engineers of Scottish birth, aud
of the able seamen and firamen of
Irish birth; while nearly half the
foreign seamen .were serving in the
rating of able seamen. The de
crease in the number of British sea
men amounts to 2558 in the quin
quennial period from 1891 to 1896,
and to 4597 in the period from 1896
to 1901. An increase of 8730
foreign seamen during the past de
cade was not distributed in equal
proportions in the different ratings
in the coasting, home and foreign
trades. In the home aud coasting
trades the percentage of foreigners
it has risen from 2.8 in 1.891 to 0.8
in 1901" These figures and further
details are given in a comparative
table, where it is shown that the
percentage of foreigners in the
foreign trade has increased from
20.1 in 1891 to26.rln 1901. Among
oflcers, however, the proportion of
foreigners has slightly decreased.
The Father of Greater New
York, our Grand Old Man, Andrew
H. Greene, says the New York
Press, who presided at the ceremon
ies in Kiauuce's Tavern, used a
gavel that has a record in the cause
of liberty. It belongs to Dr. W.
0. McDowell, and whs first used in
the tavern at the centennial anni
versary of the inauguration of
George Washington as president,
April 30, 1889. On that occasion
the National Society of Sons of the
American Revolution was organ
ized. It was due to Dr. McDowell
that this organization included
daughters as well as sons. The
same gavel was used a year later,
when the "D. A. R. S." were
formed into a separate society. It

AN AUTISTIU .TAlliElt.
IMncardcd .Tull Walls With Cheerful
Signs and Mottoes.
A well-known Pittsburger, just
returned from New Mexico, des
cribes a visit to the jail of a border
county, which, through the kind
ness of the warden, he was per
mitted to make during his tour of
the country. He said that in one
end of the cell department were
large pictures of McKinlcy and
Roosevelt, with letters six inches
.1 ..1-!. .:.... ...i. t. .,,
IH'CI) U.XIMIUIIMI W11U UlVjf llt
and underneath the picture of Mc
Kinlcy were his memorable last
The two pictures were easily rec
ognized and the visitor was much
surprised when the warden told
him that he had painted them him
self. He was more surprised when
he made a tour of the cell tiers.
Over the door of each cell was
painted a motto, as "What is. home
without a mother?" "I am happy
as the day is long," "A hot time
in the old town .tojiight," and
others too numerous to mention.
The Pittsburger was puzzled at first
to know the meaning of all this
placarding, but the jailer ex
plained, as he had to paint the jail
himself once every year, to add
spice to the work and lend a little
more coloring to the interior of the
otherwise barren and plain white
walls, he thought of the motto
scheme. The selection was varied
enough to suit any taste. Titles
of popular songs were seen over the
doorways to cells containing pris
oners whose appearance was totally
at variance with the idea conveyed.
For purposes of harmony with the
surroundings some of the titles of
songs are appropriately modified,
for instance: "Home Ain't Noth
ing Like This," is made into
"Home Ain't Nothing Like This
My Wife's There," over a cell into
which during- the course of a year
numerous drunks find refuge until
they arc fit to mingle again in their
home circles. Pittsburg Gazette.
An interesting article appears in
Nature from the pen of Maurice
Solomon on the theory of the gas
mantle. The widespread use of the
incandescent light has led scientists.
to speculate not only on the com
position best adapted to give 0 full
measure of light, but on the actual
conditions in virtue of which the
light, as Mr. Solomon puts it, rep
resents one of the most efficient ar
tificial illumiuauts that the in
genuity of man has devised. He
comes to the conclusion that the
explanation of the niaiUle's power
of emitting its light is to be found
not in one cause but in a plurality
of conditions. Thus there must be
good radiating power by way of
diffusing the light, the possibility
of attaining a high temperature,
and also what Mr. Solomon styles
the "selective emissivity" of the
mantle, this last indicating certain
chemical operations incidental to
mantles and light or temperature.
The study of the scientific condi
tions which make one mantle more
efficient as a light giver than
another, must in time benefit the
public in supplying them with a
P"rfcct appliance, economical in use
and giving the highest return in
light for the consumer's outlay.
