Capt. Ilnwen did not discover t tint

We went booming along down the

as a Vaukee pacnger termed the bu-i-III"-

Away we went, howling anil screech

streaming back from the chimney.
Wylie wa huliirliiii-ly engaged in

bells "tap. tap, tap 1" now this

ion'illy to slip a -mall lla?k out of hU

l'lrseiitly the engineer sung out fiom

a snag that ripped nearly the whole bot

about eight feet of water.
Caiit. Howcn bounded up to the pilot

you've made it killing ol it this time!"

"She's down la eight feet of water, Mr.

Into the "texa." got liNold llddle, when
lie sat down and went to playing the

A nice me-s we were in! However,
aootit an hour alter the snagging of the
boat wu heard, some distance down the
river. a fearful howl from a -team whistle.
"The Glaueus! the Glancus!" cried
several of the pa-'enger in a breath.
"So other boat has such a whittle. It is
the (ilauctis coming up."
That wa not the old 01aticu, as Mie
was burned at St. Louis hi 1S.VJ or 1K13,
but was a new (ilaucus, built by the -ame
owner, and provided with a eeoiid edi
tion ofthe same unearthly whl-ile which
rendered the old Olailcti- tamotis all

Well, we made signals of distress, and
the Glaueus came alon-'fide. when wo

"I see," said Mr. Clemens; "but be

Thu Glaueus landed u. at St. I.otil,
and I never again attempted the triji to
New Orleans, nor ever again met l'ilot

In the twelfth century it was found
tleces'iirv to pave the streets ot I'arls Ihe
stench hi thi ui was so dreadful. At once
dysenteries and .'potted fever diminished;
a -anltnrv condition approaching that of
the Moorl-h cities of Spain which had
been paved for eenturli-H. was attained.
In that now bcautllnl metropolis it was
forbidden to keep HWlue, an ordinance
rcM-iitcil by tiie monks of thenbbi-y of St.
Anthony, who deinandi-ij that tlif'tilirs of
that saint should go where they cIiom.-;
the government was obliged to eompro
mle the matter by requiring that Ik-IIs
should be fatened to the animals' neek.
King Phillip, the son of I.ouls the Fat,
had been killisl by his horn- stuinblltig
over a sow. 1'roliibitioiis were puhlNhcd
against throwing slops out ot thu win
dow. Until (he beginning of the seven
teenth century, tin- -treets of Merlin
were never -wept. There wa a law that
every countryman, who came to market
w ith a cart, sJiottld carry back a load of
wn followed by attempt, often of an
imperfect kind, at the construction of
drains au.l "ewers. It ha become obvi
ous to all retlecting men that tbei! were
ncceary to the preservation of health,
not only hi town-, but in l-olateil hou-c.
Then I ol lowed tin-lighting of the public
tboriuiglilare-. At tlr-t boii-es facing the
streets were coiiiK'lleil to have i-.indle.s
or lamps In their windows ; then the sys
tem mat had been followed with mi much
advantage hi Corodva and Granada of
having public lamp- wa tried, lint thi
was not brought to p.-rl'celion until the
pr ut century, when lighting by gas
wn invented. 'ontemponiueou-ly with
public lamp were improved organiza

were Iooklng-glases and clock on the
wall-, mantel-over the llreplaee. Though
in many district tlieklleben tiro was still
-upplicd with turf, the u-e of coal began
to prevail. The table in the tllulug-rooiii

China. colVee from Arabia, thu u-e of

the layer of straw. In the chambers
