Tiio Secrets of Success.
Without doubt, tho socrets open to all
in business, if well followed, are mo3t
sure to lead to sufficiency, which is suc
cess enough. These aro: Tenacity of pur
pOb. courage of convictions, strict at
tention to your own business and letting
that of others alone; Imowing when to
say no and meaning it when said; allow
ing thought to precede words and action;
placing a high value on truth; rating the
respect of mankind higher than wealth;
living within your means; wearing an old
coat until yon can pay for a new one; hav
ing a firm belief that this life is not all
ihcro is to work for. Thero are other
"secrets" which cm to lead to success,
end ono called "booming," but it is doubt
ful if they should bo encouraged or re
commended to tho rising generation, as
they are based on deception, supported
by falsehood, and lead to but a glitter of
success, likely to tarnish. J. H. Mc

A Natural Soap Well.
A nataral soap well has been discov
ered sisty-eight miles west of Buffalo

gathered with a shovel, and I3 supposed
to bo a mixture of alkali, borax ac4 the

and ho reported the discovery worth the
full weight of tho manufactured articlo.
Partics surrounding tho springs have

Warnings from th Spirits of the Depart
ed Gloomy Focebodlae Fate of th
Good Ship Friday Bird of the Sea.
Sailors bellere that the spirits of the
departed, as in life, possess all their own
peculiar ways of warning' cr conimuni-catiag-
to their frieada on earth such in
formation as they deem essential to their
welfare and happiness. It is not an un
common occurrence for them to credit tho
shades of some friend with many of those
triflng little changes in th& Sowing and
ebbing of the sea as indicative of some
prospective ill luck or joy.
Barelj does it happen that the etymol
ogy of their superstition, contains a pre
cursor for joy. Such gloomy forebodings
as they ore capable of interpreting are in
variably omens of misforttrce. Truly
may it be said that superstition forms tho
alphabet of the seafaring man as ono

Their transformation into tho cthcrtai
realms of space does not, in the belief of
those whom they have left behind, alter
their ideas one iota, and hence it is thnt
tho several trifling mishaps and other cir
cumstances incidental io a voyage are in
terpreted by tho sailors into realities
which would fill a volume in themselves.
In Justice to them, however, be it said,
that such fatnitions conceptions are not
without foundation, as tho loss of tho
eteamship Friday many years ago wUl
FATE OF THE FRIDAY.
This vessel was a huge ironclad, built 1 but cover got one yet," continued tho con
in Scotland regardless of expenso, and 1 ductor. "If I did I'd keep it it$ a curiosity,
named after tho unlucky day. She was 1 Oh 71 "' Et quite a uumber of Canada
manned and -commanded by capable and
experienced officers, selected for their
capabilities, and altogether thoroughly
adapted for such a task 03 the trial voy
age of an ocean steamer. She set sail en
Friday, and when uearing the Capo of Good
Hope a few weeks afterward on that very
samo day, sank, drowning all her crew.
It is believed that owing to this disaster
seamen have considerable fear of putting
to sea on Friday, and some go sti far as to
say that thoir fears date from this sad
catastrophe. Captains of small vessels
have always dreaded tho prospect of sail
ing on Friday, while those of larger ones
look upon that day with the greatest non
chalance and unconcern.
Tho sailor on laud and on sea aro two
distinct characters, each possessing his
own singular attributes. On land nc
ofiier being has a more utter disregard of
premature danger or mishaps, as hfc. daily
actions ana nocturnal orgies demonstrate,
bo when once on sea Tie blossoms out
again into smiles of excessive obsequious
ness. There when danger dogs his foot
pteps at every track superstition is his
Idol; to it he sacrifices every selfish senti
ment, and in it ho trust for those happy
presentiments which may afterward save
him from destruction.
Even while partaking of their meal
sailors rarely lose an opportunity of dis
cussing and rehoarsing stories which the
average man would regard as the product
of a maniaca brain. The day's happen
ings ore interpreted by each and notes ex
changed. Tho moat gifted romancer ia
then looked upon with feelings of rever
ence and ro3pect. A visit to their sleeping
quarters will rovcal a miscellaneous col
lection of horseshoes, nails, palmlike
loaves and numerous other articles, each
of which has a history of its own. When
birds are swept aboard in a storm thoy are
invariably left, untouched, as sailors eye
them with delight and natisfaction as tho
spirits of some dear departed friend met
amorphosed. Tho birds of the sea,
notably the petrel, immortalized by Proc
tor, and tho sea gull, are held sacred in
conscquenco of the latter apparently rest
ing on the surface of the sea after tho
manner of tho Saviour ou tho Lako of
Whenever this occurs in tho Immcdinto
vicinity of a ship a calm is predicted, and
the jolly tars loso little or no timo in
notifying the captain of their glorious
vision. In sailors' eyes tho porpoises arc
never pleasant objects to contemplate.

' Tho common barnacle which cdhercs to
a ship's sido becomes, according to their
boliei, later on in life a gooso. Bat among
all thooo eigns nothing is so well calcu
lated to fill them with awe as the appear
ance of a shark. When this monster of
tho deep is seen to follow a ship for
several days a death is to occur on Ixwrrd,
and while olambjring up tho rigging
extra pains are adopt! in making their
journey a safe and auccefisful one. Tho
ship is then ovidently haunted, and the
faces of her crow, bat recently smiling,
are now decorated with cxprobBiontJ at
