The wind howled and shrieked
through the rigging, bare and stiff,
and swept along the yards in vain
attempts to tear the canvas from
its gaskets and, failing miserably,
snooped down with a wild roar on
to the tarpaulin stretched in the
mizzen rigging,which it flattened till
the ratlines showed through it like
?he ribs of a skeleton.
It was blowing as it only can blow
down there-five or sis gales lashed
together with round sennit.
One watch, soa booted, oil skin
ned and mittened, was hanging
about for'ard and under the break
of the foc'sle.
The other one had turned in, all
standing and ready for a call. In
such weather no man knows from
minute to minute what may happen.
It was bitterly cold. The skipper
and the chief were below. The sec
ond mate stamped the poop, squint
ing doubtfully every time ne turned
aft at the great sea mountains which
curled bullying up, overhung the
taffrail for a minute and then, as
the ship r? se, rolled away with a
deep, hoarse bellow of disappoint

swirl of the breaking combers,
swooped, fluttered and screamed a
flock of mollyhawks and cape pi

Presently the second mate, oom
ing to tho poop rail, sang out,
"Aye, aye/' came back from the
group for'ard as a man lurched aft.
"There's an Irish pennant on the
starboard fore t'gallant brace, John

The man, a- tall, rawboned, pow
erful "bluenose," got on to the rail
and, standing there, with his hand
on thc shear polo, said disgustedly:
"Another work up job! Hazin'
agen, is" you, you greaser hound,
a-sendin' a man ona boy's errand/'
"None o' yer lip I" exclaimed the
second mate savagely, for he was in
an evil temper, the steward having
stopped his grog. "None o' yer lip,
or I'll log ye!'*
"If 'twa8n't that I don't want a
bad discharge out of her," retorted
the other, slowly beginning to climb
under the gale which pinned him to
the rigging, "I'd come over an' kick
yer head Off 1 But when I get ashore
I'll hang for youl"
This in such a tone of deep con
viction as allowed of no doubt what
ever. And so the "greaser" appear
ed to think, for, without arguing the
point, he resumed his walk, and the
other his long unnecessary journey.
And all hands for'ard, having
nothing else to do, watched the yel
low figure like eomo great lizard

Vice and thrice they saw him

Tho yar?Vjiwung round, and the
yellow bundle crouching at its far

twenty feet with amazing swiftness;
then, seeming to- expand itself to
four times its natural size, sailed
gently off to leeward.
"Man overboard !"
"Oh, you murderin' villain!"
shouted a couple as they all rushed
"I thought as how he'd "af hung
on an* pulled it in to him," quavered
the second mate as with trembling
fingers he cut a life buoy adrift.
For a moment it looked as if ho
was to follow Dan, as the men, with
black scowls and loud curses, crowd
ed around him.
But tho skipper and the mate
rushed up* and between, hearing the
while many words hot and bitter.
The watch below, too, came pad
dling aft with naked feet and sleepy
And presently on the smooth, oily
summit of a comber far away they
saw their shipmate, floating high,
with a crowd of birds hovering
But hod they been 2,000 instead
of twenty they could do nothing
more than uselessly throw life buoys
and hencoops overboard and watch
through contracted eyes, with little
moans of pity. One can do no more
hove to in the southern ocean, with
a forty foot sea running.
"God help him!" said the skip
per. "He was a good man." And
ne shut the glass with a snap, giving
the second mate a look that meant
"He's riding high," said the chief
officer, peering. "The wind that
kept him up isn't out of his clothes
yet. But the birds are at him. Poor
beggar! There's one big brute
right on his head."
At this there was a growl and a
wicked sort of move of men toward
the second mete, standing aloof and
The captain had walked away aft

Seeing murder in many eyes, the
second mate gave a loud cry and
snatched an iron belaying pin out of
The cry was echoed by one of
amazement from the chief, who,
dancing with excitement, roared:
"He's gripped him! Stand by, all
hands, with your bowlines I Here
he comes like a house afire! Hoo

And the men yelled again and fell
to knotting bowlines furiously as
they looked and saw Dan borne
breast high out of the water, hang
ing on like grim death to the legs o?
a huge albatross, towed up one
green comber and down another,
ut always coming closer.
Heralded by shrill screamings of
rage and terror and the quick flap
ping of mighty ivings, the strange
procession came until almost close
aboard, abreast of the mizzen rig
Then as a big sea passed, leaving
a smooth valley, somewhat sheltered
by the ship, De~i let go, and a score
of bowlines flew around him. in so
Hauled on deck, nearly naked,
with bleeding head and hands, he
staggered to his feet, and, singling
out the eecor i mate, he fell upon
him and would have choked h?m-hnd
his strength held.
But it did not. So presently,
wrapped in warm blankets and with
six inches of hot rum qualifying the
salt water, he was put in his bunk.
The great bird still sailed about
the ship, swooping down for the
Eieces of biscuit cast to it with a
bera! hand by the men, when the
skipper went up to the second mate.
"Go and get that Irish pennant
down," said he.'
The man went without a word.
"When he reached the deck again,
blue with cold and his teeth rat
tling, the skipper said: '

Clay and Webster were not habit
ual humorists, but both had the gift
of entertaining as well as of en
thralling their audiences. Clay ran
most to illustrative anecdote. While
he was in the house a prominent,
politician deserted the Whig party
JA the hope of starting a general re
volt. To his dismay, he found him
self quite alone and then bent all
his energies to getting back into
good standing. The incident re
minded Clay of a story. Said he:
"A stagecoach took aboard a pas
senger wno insisted upon riding
with the driver and who diligently
drew upon the contents of a bottle
carried in bis greatcoat pocket.
When his potations at last overcame
him, he fell off. The coach stopped
long enough for some charitable
travelers to alight and pull the poor
fellow out of the mud. "
" Ha,' he exclaimed as he looked
down at his tattered garments, *we

that the coach had not upset.

Origin of the Bunyip.
In the fifties in tho last century,
when the gold fever was still high,
a walrus came ashore near an Aus
tralian town. The creature was
captured and sold to an enterpris
ing digger, who constructed a booth,
put the walrus in it and wrote over
the concern in flaring letters, "The
Bunyip Has Arrived. The show was
a great financial success, but the
change of environment did not suit

three days, in s;?ii,s of a compulsory
diet of fresh fish, ho died, and the
body was Bold to the curator of the
local museum. Mr. Stock suggests
that this unfortunate walrus may
have been stuffed and labeled "The
Bunyip." Certainly the popular idea
of the bunyip has much in common
with the walrus, and many legends

Sober sa a Judge.
Daniel O'Connell used to relate
that a certain Irish judge was so
fond of brandy that he kept some in

suck it through a quill pen.

to say truly -whether he was drunk
or sober on a given day. "Quite so

The Action? of Trees.
Tho action of trees in their man
ner of taking root in strange soil
seems almost like tho human family,
who are guided in their likes and
dislikes hy intelligence, wisdom and
consciousness, which trees and vege
tation cannot possess. Some trees
strive to take root in hard, inhos
pitable soil among the rocks and ra
vines, as if hiding from the winds
and frosts of northern climates and
reaching forth with more than nat
ural instincts for moisture, solar
rays, warmth of sunshine and rain.
It seems like a human, cry for life
There are trees seen in New Eng
land-forests that seem to crowd to
gether for companionship around
the inland lakes and rivers. They
seem to get thickly together for

till their branches interlock in so
cial and harmonious affection, aid
ing each other to support as best
they may their roots from the hun

Educating a Boy.
In Montaigne's eyes the object of
education is to form a hoya charac
ter and piepare him for life and to
fill hirn not so much with learning
as with the desire of learning, "with
an honest curiosity for information
about everything." This sounds
perhaps obvious and commonplace,
but tho seed which Montaigno sowed
three centuries ago has, it must be
confessed, fallen on stony ground.
There are a large number of persons
concerned with education at the
present day who, if they equip a
boy with a sufficient stock of learn
ing to enable him to pass an exam
ination, fold their hands and think
that they have done all that is need
ful. I will quote two aphorisms
which Montaigne has left ns-"Ev
ery abridgment of a good book is a
foolish abridgment" and "Leoxning
in one man's hand is a scepter; in
another's, a bauble."

For the first time the ancient and
