SUE HEARD HIS VOICE.
The Drowning of n Younc Snllor Scon In
h D renin
Stead's "Truo Ghost Stories."
A grcnt gust of wind solzed tho half
slackeued matntopsail and sent it fluttering
into fragments. At tho eamo moment tho
ship reeled nearly on her beam ends, and
above the howling of tho galo wo heard a sud
den cry of despair. I was horrified to sec an
apprentice, J P , sent whirling head
long from the masthead into tho sea. Even
jot I can seo the look of agony stamped on
bis upturned faco, and I can hear tho very
tones of his heartrending cry, "Oh, Lucy I
Lucy !" as he disappeared forever in tho dark
After the storm had abated tho captain made
a careful noto of tho exact time of tho occur
rence, tho position of tho Bhlp, and tho other
particulars, lie seemed struck at my mention
of tho exclamation I had overboard fulling
from the poor fellow's lips as bo clutched in
vain at tho yielding air.
'Ah," ho paid, "that must havo been his
sister, Lucy V , to whom be waB greatly
Tho rest of tho voyage passed without inci
dent, and as soon as tho ship arrived at Liver
pool I made my way to tho train which was
to take me to Manchester.
I was walking idly aioug tho platform when
I saw tho faco of an old gentleman, who, with
a young lady on bis arm, was elbowing bis
way though tho crowd. His resemblance to
our lost mutu was so striking that I stood and
looked at him. The young ladv's eyes hap
pened suddenly to meet mine. Instantly sho
gave a violent start, uttering a low scream,
and exclaiming, "Oh, look, there's tho faco of
my dream !" stared at me as if fascinated.
Her companion gently rallied her, and half
led, half carried her to tho nearest waiting
room. As ho passed me ho begged me to
come witb them, and handed me his card.
When we were alone the old gentleman ex
plained that the sight of my face had re
minded his daughter of a very peculiar and
unpleasant dream, to which she still persisted
in attaching importance. Ho said: "At the
present moment, indeed, we are on our way
to discover if the owners of my 6on's ship
havo mceived any news of its arrival."
I said: "I am an apprentice of the C ,
and have but lately left her lying in tho
'"Then," the young lady cried, "I must bo
right. It must tie true. 'Twas that man's
faco I saw uazlng at him as bo fell. I saw
Joe's ship in the midst of a fearful storm, and
him clinging to tho slippery shrouds. A
bright flash seemed to pass before my eyes,
and I saw him falling backward into the sea;
I saw your face In the momentary gleam and
I woke perfectly terrified to hear the sound
of my own name 'Ob, Lucy ! Lucy 1' whis
pered in my ears."
The expression of my face must havo con
veyed but too well the meaning of my silence.
"My God." cried Mr. , "is it true, then.
Is he dead?"
I stammered, "Too true, sir. Yes, every
word of it I I was beside him at the moment,
and even tried to save him."
On comparing notes we found that tho
dream took place the very day, and allowing
for the difference in longitude, even the very
hour when tho accident occurred !
THE PARBOILED JAPANESE.
They Seem to Thrive "Wonderfully on
Their Frequent Hot IJuths.
Now York Sun.
To sum up, the Japanese batho for sensuous
pleabure and for warmth, and they get not
only the two thincs, but several others equally
desirable, clean bodies, health, a soft skin,
and a clear complexion. Farsan'sguido book
attributes the premature aging of Japanese
women in part to their too frequent indulgence
in the hot bath; but Dr. Baelz, tho greatest
authority on Japanese physique, declares
that these baths have many advantages, but
not a single disadvantage so far as ho could
ascertain. It is commonly supposed that hot
baths unbrace tbc norves and invito colds,
but this is truo only of warm and not of hot
baths, such as tho Japanese indulge iu, at a
temperature of 110 to 115, which In some
cases Is increased to 120 and occasionally
even to 130 Fahrenheit.
Foreigners cannot endure such tempera
tures, but the natives revel iu them, and tho
effect on them is so bracing and strengthening
that they can, and often do, emerge from the
tub and walk some distance in tho coldest
winter weather without a stitch of clothing
on and without catching cold. When foreign
phybiclans were first imported and looked up
to in Japan, about twenty years ago, thoy
actually succeeded, in their ignorance, in mak
ing tbo Government pass a law forbidding a
higher temperature than blood beat; but tho
mistake was soon discovered and tho law re
pealed. To-day thoso of tho foreign residents
who aro wisest have given up their cold baths,
and try to approximate tho Japanese tempera
ture as closely as possible.

The cost of producing the different brands

consequence of tho well-known fact that in
its manufacture neither corn nor corn propa

ST OF EYESIGHT.
How n Crafty Old Engineer 1'usHcd With
I JFlylni; Colorn.
Tho official of a loading English railway
company tolls a good story about ono of tho
onglno drivers of his lino. Tho driver was
growing old, and frequent reports were mado
to tho directors that his eyesight was not
good. This tho old man denied. Ho stoutly
maintained that his oyes were not only Btrong,
but phenomenally strong, and that theso
criticisms woro mado by joalous follow engino
Tho test for eyesight on that lino was
mado by a doctor who lived in a house facing
a largo common. When ho wished to test tho
man's oyeB ho used to say: "Look over thero
and seo what you can seo."
This fact bad got known to tho employes
of tho railway, and when tho old ongino driver
was going to bo oxamincd ho arranged with
bis sou that ho should tako bis bicycle about
half a mllo across tho common and stoop
down and oil it.
In duo time tho old engino driver was led to
tho window and tho doctor said as usual:
"What can you seo?"
Tho old man peered out and said: "Well,
I seo a young man stooping down bcsldo a
"Do you?" replied tho doctor: "I cannot
seo anything at all."
"Gammon I" said the engino driver; "Can't
you seo it ? Why, be is oiling it."
On this tho doctor took up a pair of field
glasses on the table, and looking out behind,
quito plainly saw a young man stooping down
oiling his bicycle. "Magnificent sight !" ho
said; "magnificent 1" And to this day tbo
ongino driver is taking his forty shillings a
week with striking regularity.
