A SPECTRE HELMSMAN.
In tho summer of 1839 tho ship Vul
can, under tho command of Capt. Isaac
Johnson, was on her homeward bound
passago from tho Indies with half n
cargo of tea. and she stopped nt Cipe
Negro, on tho coast of Benguela, after a
lot of ivory to uinko up her loud. Hav
ing gone on fihoto at tho Capo tho
captain learned from tlio native con
tractor that ho would have to go somo
fifteen mileq up tho Cannibal's river, as
tho elephant hunters had all tho boats
further up in the couutiv, so that con
sequently they had not been enabled to
bring tho ivory down.
Capt. Johnson was somewhat disap
pointed at this caiibo for delay, but with
out waiting to find useless fault ho do
te: mined to man his own boats and pio
ceed at once up the river. It required
four trips to bring all tho ivory down,
but as they had opportunity to take ad
vantage of the slight tides tho task was
accomplished in four days. On the last
trip the captain went himself, leaving
tho first mtito in chargo of tho ship, and
on arriving at tho small village whcio
tho ivory was bloied ho was not a
little surprised to find that nearly all tlio
miserable huts were deserted. Sover.il
times Capt. Johnson inquhed tho'mean
ing of this, but tho natives weio oither
tumble or unwilling to give any plain
answer, and it was not until tho last lot
of tusks had been conveyed to the boats
and the natives had been remuner.iU'd
for their labor that the least clew could
bo obtained astothocausoof this strange
desertion, and then for the first time the
captain received tho startling intelli
gence that tlio cholera was sweeping
down the riveii
As soon as this fact became known to
tho seamen they wildly huddled into
their bo.its, as though tho fearful death
angel .was at their heels, and silently,
yet with powerful stiokes, they pulled
down the fatal stream. At length they
leached their ship, and though they
breathed somewhat more fieoly as they
trod their own deck, yet each counte
nance bore the stamp of deep fear. The !
ivory was soon got on board, and with
all haste tho old Vulcan was got under
way It was nearly night when the
ship got off, and with a good' breeze
from tho northward and eastward she
stood well on her course. On the uext
morning, shoitly after breakfast, and
while the ciew had begun to think that
thoy had no occasion for further fear, a
young man named Walter Addison was
taken suddenly bick.
Young Addu,.iu was tho favorite both
of the officers nnd the crew, and as it
was repotted that ho was thus ill a gen
eral consternation seized upon all hands.
The young mnn felt at first a giddineos
and a sickly clnil, and in the courso of
two houis he sank into an alarming do
bilily, the countenance assuming a
deadly paleness and his skin bearing all
the appe.n ance of it corpse. Poor Addi
bou buffered 'till noon, and then the
staitling announcement went through,
the ship that he was dead.
This was tho first, but who should be
tho next? A pauie had boized upon the
uieu; the cholera was with them, and
none dared removo tho form of their
dead .thipmate fiom his berth. Night
approached, and with it came an almost
dead calm, but tho corpse still remained
in the loi castle, nor did the men dare to
go thither. Tho captain urged that tho
longer ptesence of tho body would bteed
more dangerous contagion, but the only
answer hereceived was a mournful
shake ot the heads about him.
At length, finding that all arguments
were useless, ho turned to his mate and
asked him if he would assist himself in
tin owing the body of the dead man over
board. The mate at first hesitated, but
in a moment ho signified his consent, and
together himself and the captain wont
down into tho forecastle. Thoy dared
not remain long enough with the corpse
to sew it up, nor oven to attach to it a
sinking weight, but tin owing over it a
single blanket, thoy managed to get it
upon deck and lay it across the bul
wark of tho btarboard bow. A moment
Capt. Johnson hesitated ho opened his
lips, breathed a prayer for tho soul of
tho depaited, and then, whilo a shudder
tan over his frame, he lot tho cold torm
of young Walter Addison slide into tho
blue wateil Instinctively he cast his
eyes over tho eido aa the deed was done,
and by tho palo phosphorescent light he
could just bee tho corpse sink, then risa
and biuk again, and then with a Heavy
step and a still heavier heart ho walked
Tho first watch had been sot, but the
other watch dared uot -go below, aud
huddling themselves beneath the long
boat they sought tho lepobo which thoy
feaied to teelc where their companion
had died; but each seemed to feur his
neighbor, for none knew where the con
tagion might bo. At 11 o'clock the
slight brcathingH or tho air, which
beoiueil for the last fow hour to have
had no sottlcd point, begun to gather

yet steady, nml the old ship wan cIom1
hauled upon it, lying Rome two points
off from her true course. Tho fillip's ball
was suspended over the binnaelo, and
old Shippen reached over nml struck the
first half hour after midnight, tie had
jnst resumed his position, and was gaz
ing intently at the .compass, when he
felt n hnnd laid upon his shoulder, and
on turning around ho beheld by the
struggling beams of the binnacle lamp
tho pnlo, deathly features of Walter Ad
disonl For an instant tho old sailor lemained
rooted to the spot, and then, uttering a
sharp cry of fear, ho lot go the wheel nnd
darted f oi ward. In a moment the ship
began to full off, and as she brought tho
flat nni face of brond canvas to the wind
she heeled over alarmingly: but soon tho
pale specter that had frightened tho
helmsman Irom his post caught tho
wheol, nni laid tho holm hard down, and
ero long tho ship was once moro to tho
Shippcn's cry had staitcd all hands
from their listlessnes3. for thoy thought
tho cholera fiend had assailed him, but
from his broken ejaculations thoy 60on
learned what was the matter, and in a
body they crowded aft, and by the dim
light from tho binnacle they saw tho
specter helmsman! Cveiy knee tieuibled,
and every tongue clovo to tho roof f its
mouth. None dared to npproach him,
nor did any movo back. At this junctuie
the captain came on deck. His eye
caught the eorpso like form that still
held tho wheel, and lip, too, was'rivoted
to the spot whero ho stood.
"Shipmates, relievo mo from hero, or
I shall faint 1 am cold and weak!" at
length came from tho lips of tho Boom
ing Bpecter, in faint, agonized tones.
Capt. Johnson hesitated an instant,
and then he lushed forward and laid his
hand upon tho trembling form befoie
him. It was cold and wet, but lie knew
that it was a living man. One after an
other of the men gathered about, and
before long all know that young Walter
Addibon still lived. The captain had
him conveyed to tho cabin, whore every
thing that could bo thought of was ad
ministered for his comfort, and it was
not long before lie sufficiently revived to
givo an account of his strange escape
from the cold, deep grave to which ho
had been consigned.
It seemed that young Addison had
fallen into that deathlikolothargy which
not infrequently results from sudden
cholcia, and which, as all who are ac
quainted with tlio diseaso must bo aware,
so nearly resembles death that even tho
best physicians have been deceived by
it. The, sudden immeision in the cold
water had revived his dormant senses,
and as tho ship had but a slight motiou
at tho timo he came to a partial realiza
tion of his situation before she had
passed him, and by considerable exer
tion he managed to get hold of the rud
der chains. Ho tried to call for assist
ance, but his tongue was so swollen that
he found it impossible, and nfterremain
ing upon tho chains long enough toie
gnin more strength ho worked his way
up till he got hold of tho lanyards of the
cabin dead lights.
From thence ho reached tho lashings of
tho stern boat, but here weakness again
overpowered him, and alter working his
way into the boat he remained somo time
insensible, but at length he revived and
came on board. Ho had tried to speak,
but ho could uot. When the helmsman
fled from the wheel he had sense enough
to see tho ship's danger, and from tho
impulse of a sort of instinct he seized
the wheel aud brought her up to the
The morning dawned, and the next
day passed, then another, and another,

Farmer Ciano, who lives over on the

him from time to time tor work.
One evening a tall, big boned fellow,
in his shirt sleeves, asked Crane if ho had
any woik to do
"1 don't know.'' said the fanner.
"Can you tend horses?"
"Yes. indeedy. I've worked about
horses all my life."
"Come around here to the pmnp,"6iiid
Crane, and lie led the way to a common
sucker rod pump near the barn. Going
inside he got a long, narrow pitcher, and
placed it under the spout. "There."
said he, "pump that pitcher full of wa
ter." Tho big boned fellow complied,
carefully pumping tho pitcher full with
out spilling a single drop
"That'll do," said Crane. "Go inside
and get leady for supper; I'll givo you a
job in the morning."
About a wcok later tho big boned fel
low asked Crane what pumping the
pitcher full of water had to do with his
getting a job
"Well, I'll just tell you this is
mighty dry weathor, and water is get
ting seal ce You must have thought
that far, tor you didn't spill any water
If you hadu't pumped hard the watei
would have been spilled, and if yon hail
pumped too hard the water would have
gone over the pitcher. Now, the way I
argue is this: If a follow don't pump
hard enough ho won't work haid
enough It he pumps too hard he'll
work too haul for a little while, and I
don't waul either kind to woik for me.
You pumped exactly right, and you got
a job." Toledo Blado.
