HOW THE MAM MET
THE PLAGUE SHIP
Traveling with tbc Trades Was She In
the Indian Ocean.
SIGHTED A STRANQE OLD WRECK
Uonrdod Her nnd llroko in tho Cabin
Door with Tcrrlblo Rcsnlt--Tlils
Hnpponcd In 1833. nnd Throe Ycnrs
I.nter tlio Hnmo Derelict Wits Been
by n French Shlp-Grim Romance
of the Occnn.
On the 3d day of January, 1833, says
tho Philadelphia Times, the American
bark Miami was dipping her nose in
tho surges of the Indian Ocean, about
300 miles west of Sandalwood Island.
As she was traveling with tho trade
winds the crew had nothing to do but
smoke and growl. At last ono was
sent aloft to fix a chafing mat on ono
of the main stays. No sooner had he
got Into the top than ho hailed, "Ship
nhoy, right off the starboard quarter."
The captain came on neck and after
a long look to the east said to his mate:
"Mr. Borden, take tho glass and say
what you make of that craft. Some
thing queer there."
Tho mate, after a long scrutiny, re
plied: "An old tea wagon. Main and
mtzzen mast gone, and a Jury fore
mast. Her hull seems all right, but I
can't see any people aboard. She must
have a cargo or bo full of water, for
she dips clean to the forrard rail."
"Well, we'll run down to her. 'Stand
by for stays.' "
Tn a few minutes the Miami on tho
other tack, was rushing through tho
water towards tho stranger, and came
up In the wind 200 yards away.
Evidently an old-timer, for her quar
ter galleys Jutted out from the stern
like houses, and the channels were
broad enough to swing a hammock In,
but her appearance indicated a long
battle with the boisterous main. There
was only tho stump of a bow-sprit
left, and long trails of seaweed like a
Druids beard, hung from the bow.
"She's deserted, captain," said the
man In the top. "Her cabin is pad
locked, and tho fokescl scuttle bat
"Well, we'll take a squint at her.
Man the boat Mr. Borden, and get her
log, and see what's In tho hold. We
may do a little salvage work."
ABOARD THE WRECK.
The boat, manned by four of the
rallors, pulled around to the lee of the
wreck, and tho mate and three others
5-crambled aboard. Never In their lives
had they seen such a ship. All the
stnunchlons were double timbers, the
rail was two feet thick and deck Irons
In proportion. No tempest could wreck
such a craft, but no human being was
seen, and from the appearance of the
Jury mast It must have been rigged a
"She's a Frencher," said a sailor,
"look ut her scuttle butt (water cask)
striped red and white" (In English or
American ships always green),
'Sure enough," replied the mate;
"and now let's get Into the cabin."
The door was solid teak plank crossed
by an Iron bar, secured by a padlock
that must have weighed ten pounds.
"Well, this beats me," said tho mate.
"Murphy, get into the boat and you
two pull back to the ship and bring
tools. I'll get In here somehow."
One of the men had hailed from for
ward: "Mr. Borden I got off the fokesel
scuttle, and there Is tho skllllngton of
man below and there are Lascar togs."
Tho mate brought up a skull. "Why,
that man must have been dead ten
years, and here Is, a turban and Malay
knife. Well, wait till we get the log."
And now they went to work with the
tools, heavy top-mauls, and after half
an hour's sledging broke the cabin
lock and the door seemed to open of
its own volition. A grandly furnished
room met their eyes. On the port side
was a closed row of bunks, but the
rest was filled with rich furniture, and
on the long tablet lay an open book,
while at the head, swinging to a Carlln,
was a richly mounted sword and plum
ed hat. Everything looked a century
old. No sign of life, but there was a
strange stifling odor, and In an Instant
there came to the men an Impression
that they were not alone. There was
a movement of the shadows where the
quarter galleries lay, they mingled and
seemed to grow luminous, camo to a
point like an eye, glowing red and
malignant. Four braver men or less
imaginative could scarcely have been
found than Borden and his sailors, but
until now not a word had been spoken.
Then Murphy cried out: "Mr. Borden,
I'm chokln'," and, with a feeling of
uncontrolled terror a rush was made
THE AIR POISONED.
"Oh, Lord, three mouthfuls more of
that would have killed us. Whoever
left this ship must have had some art
of poisoning the air, and keeping off
strangers. I feel as If my head would
bust," said the mate. It was no sudden
fright. Their faces wore a deep purple
with eyes red and swollen.
"Let us take a look at the hold."
After much hammering tho hatch was
lifted and long rows of bales were seen.
"Goat skins, by Jingo, and she's as
tight as a bottle. Rig tho pump and
give her a draw."
"Tho pump sucks air, sir; but Mr.
Borden, there's someone In that cabin.
The mate did, but heard nothing save
a queer gurgle. Impulsively ho swung
the door open. It was pitch dark. All
the light from the bull's-eyes had dis
appeared save tho small dot of fire at
tho far end. One whiff of the stifling
odor and he staggered back and yelled.
"Quick menl Get In the boat! That
poison Is coming on deck. I believe
there's a gang of Malay devils In that
Their heads fairly sang as they bent
over the oars, and soon reached the
Miami. Captain Jordan was a Jolly fel
low, and when his mate made a report
he broke Into a hearty fit of laughter.
"All right, Mr. Borden. I'll try and
get out some of that cargo, and venti
late the cabin. Wo will lay by her till
morning. Set a good lookout."
But by morning ho was not mirthful.
The mate and four men were In a
delirium with fever, and the Miami
spin around on her heel and -was soon
miles away from tho accursed ship.
Insldo of three days the mate and two
of the men were dead, and it was
months before tho others recovered.
Now this same derelict was seen by
tho French ship Perron, and the Brit
ish brig Bushmaster In 1836, nnd tho
captain of tho latter crafftrled to put
a crew on board of her, hoping for a
salvage Job. The sea was very rough,
but tho men got to lee side of the
floating coffin and the bowman had the
boat hook over the side, when, like
a Hash, something sprang on the rail.
i black, tall and thin, with very long
arm." but whether n. mart or big ape
the sailors could not say. It gave a
frightful scream nnd was gone. In his
terror the bow man made a stroke
nt It. Tho boat broached to, struck
tho wreck nnd smashed In the side. It
was only by the greatest exertion that
any were saved, but threo men never
tamo back to tho brig. ,
In 1839 Mr, Jansen, the doctor em
ployed by tho Dutch government In
Java, wrote to tho Nautical Magazine
an account of a fcnrful plaguo that al
most depopulated the Island of Timor
In 1810, and the natives reported that
It camo from a big teakshlp that came
ashore on the coast, and every man
that boarded her lost his life and com
municated tho curse to those on land.
Mr. Jansen afllrmed that there could
bo no doubt of the truth of this story.
It Is sixty years since this death
denllng craft was last seen. Her sub
sequent fate Is unknown, but her mem
ory Is recorded among tho multitud
inous mysteries of tho sea.

A sick man is a prisoner in
the jail of disease; he has gone
in by some door of carelessness
or neglect or irregular living-,
and he must unlock this same
dnor bv careful, sensible habits
if he wants to be a free, well man again.
If dyspepsia and biliousness or constipa
tion is the way he got into disease, he has
got to overcome just those troubles before
he can get out.
The majority of diseases begin with some
trouble of the digestive organs or of the
liver, which prevents the supply of proper
nourishment to the system, The best
remedy for these troubles is Br. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery, because it gives
the digestive and blood-making organs
f lower to assimilate food and transform it
nto pure, nourishing blood, vitalized with
an abundance of red corpuscles.
It acts directly upon the liver and gives
it capacity to filter all bilious impurities
out of the circulation. It builds up solid,
muscular flesh and healthy nerve.force.
In obstinate constipation the "Discov
ery" should be used in conjunction with
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, the most nat
ural and thoroughly scientific laxative ever
devised. The ''Pellets" regulate and in
vigorate the stomach, liver and bowels.
