A COASTGUAltO STOltV.
Ono November evening last year
found me, tin ulderly London lawyer,
Btnndlng at tlio end of ono of tho two
long idora wlileh form tlio entrance to
an Important packet port on the south
coast. While I was peering intently
into tho darkness a man camu up and
stood beside mo and looked out to sea.
At tho samo instantoneof those sudden
squalls which uro so common at that
timo of year camo racing past us, anil
tho blinding rain beat upon our faces.
" You had bettercomo into our watch
houso for a bit, sir," said my friend ;
" it's closo by. I'm a Cutom-house
officer." And walking rapidly on ho
brought mo to a neat-looking small
house, built just where tho pier began
to branch off from tho harbor into tho
sea. Opening Iho door ho showed mo
into a good-sized room lighted withgas,
and with a capital lire blazing in tho
grate. On benches round tho liro were
threo or four men dressed in uniform
like my friend, and in u bed-berth hard
by another man was snoring away in
happy peaeefulncss, recruiting himself
for his turn of night duty.
"A lino night for smuggling, I should
fancy?" I suggested.
" Well, sir, in old times it would have
been," said ono; "Imt there's no smug
gling now-a-days to speak of just a
little trumpery bit of baccy now and
then, hardly worth taking is there,
Frank?" addressing tho man opposite.
Frank, with inlinito disgust, ngrced
" You see, sir," ho went on to me,
"theso Liberals go on cutting down tho
tariff so that there's nothing left now
just cigars and spirits, and so on. Not
but what tho ladies do their little bits of
smuggling still, and dearly they lovo it,
too. Why, sir, to this day thoy'ro won
derful clever In concealing laeo and
French gloves, although there's been
no duty ou them for years. Wo often,
when wo'ro examining tho ladies'
trunks, find two or three pair of gloves
in an old boot, or some lace, perhaps
Bowed up insido a petticoat. Wo never
says nothing, and they go homo and toll
their friends how clever they'vo been
and done tho Custom-house."
" Still," said another man, who had
been silent until now, " wo do a bit of
business now and then. Last year, sir,
twclvo casks of piteli camo over in ono
of our steamers with a heap of other
goods. They pour tho pitch hot into
tho casks, and when it cools it's as hard
as stone almost. Well, tliero was no
examining this pitch except you took a
pickax ami broko tho whole cask up.
lint tho Collector invented a kind of
auger that, with a littlo oil, went right
through tho pitch in no time. Wo tried
theso said casks with this, and in tho
center of every ono of thorn was a tin
case with thirty pounds of good cigars
in it threo hundredweight altogether
a very pretty haul for us."
"That was bettor than your drawing'
room furniture, Jack," said a youni;
officer to one much oldor, who sat on a
bench near mo.
" Never mind that," growled tho old
" What Is that?" said I.
"Well, sir, it's rather hard upon Jack
thoro to tell it; but you soo, sir, ho was
at a largo port in tho North, and a koiv
tloinan comes down to tho ofllco and
says that ho was oxpecting what ho
called a ' sweet of drawing-room furnl

" I've told you over and over atrain
that I had nothing to do with It," said
ino man, nngrily.
"Well, you wcro thoro, at any rale,"
retorted tho other.
"Thov'ro clever fnllnws nnnipl.tmna
sir," said another man, " and it isn't a
dlsgraco to bo taken in by thorn. D'vou
mind," said he, to tho other man, "that
affair at Urincmouth, somo years ago?"
"Ah, that was a start," said ono of
them. " You must know, sir," ho went
on, "that Hrinemouth Harbor U some,
tiling llko this ono. It has two long
piers running out from tho harbor.
which Is a good largo picco of water
Theso piers nro pretty closo together,
and the Customs has a watch-houso on
each pier and men alwnys on tho look
out, so that it was Impossible for tho
smallest craft to get into tho harbor
without being scon. Well, sir, the col.
lector got an anonymous letter to sav
that tho Sally, a well known smuggler,
was somcwhoro off tho coast with it lot
of tubs on board, and that they wonld
certainly bo run somewhero near. Tho
coast guard wcro all warned, and wo
had doublo watches on the piers, and
you may depend upon it that wo didn't
go to sleep, for If wo got thoso tubs It
would bo a jolly Christmas-box nplcee.
i tiny or two afterwards tho collector
got another bit of a note, saying tho
tuus would certainly bo run that night.
It was a darkish night, with a good bit
of rain; very much such another as
this, only not so squally. Wo walked tin
and down tlio piers and stared out to sea,
and nothing whatever did wo sco until
just after tho town-hall clock had struck
12, when wo distinctly hoard tho beat
of oars, nnd after a few minutes a four
oarcd boat pulled in between tho piers,
and, being hailed, camo up to tho steps
under tho watch-houso. Ono of tho
men told us that she belonged to the
bark Esther, of Newcastle, from .Sullna,
with a cargo of wheat, which was lying
out in tho bay wind-bound. One of
their men had got himself hurt, and
they'd como ashoro for :t doctor. Thoy'd
find one, wouldn't they, in Hank Street?
Did lie know Urincmouth? He should
think so; had lived hero years ago.
They'd better row right across tho har
bor to tlio steps. It would be better to
do so than to walk round, (iootl night!
Whllo ho'd been speaking two of our
men searched every inch of tlio boat,
took up her lloorlug-boards,, pricked
hor timbers all round to sco that there
was no skin, searched all tho men, but
witli no result whatever. A nice chaff
ing they got all tho time, I can tell you,
sir. "I say, governor, l'vo got a
mighty big holler tooth; hadn't you
better havo a look into it?" and so on.
Well, we camo to tlio conclusion that
slio was what they said she was, and wo
wished them good night, and they pull
ed away across tho harbor and were
soon lost to sight and hearing In tho
darkness. About an hour after tho
boat went out again with tho doctor,
for wo saw another man in tlio stern.
Nothing moro did we seo that night,
and wo went homo iu tho morning

Says he, 'I saw a queer thing la!
"'What was that?' said the collector,
paring Ills nails.
'"Why, I w:w coming along Hill
Street about a quarter to two, and I saw
about forty men, walking ono after the
other, and each with a couple of little
tubs on his shoulders.'
'"Tho deuce!' said tho collector,
jumping up mid ringing the bell. 'Send
Mr. Dawson directly,' said ho to tlio
"Mr. Dawson was our tide surveyor,
who helped to rummago tho boat.
" 'Mr. Dawson,' said the collector,

When Mr. Dawson came to hear
Mr. Joo Childer's story ho turned as
white as a sheet, and was lit to drop,
"Well, a great huo and cry was made,
and tho men were traced ever so far,
but it was no go. They'd got tlio tubs
into somo place of safety, and neithor
our men nor tho coastguard ever got
ono of thorn."
"Hut how on eartii was it done?"
" It camo out somo timo afterwards,
through a friend of mine getting ac
quainted witli one of the men. Tlio
wholo affair was arranged by a very
clever chap. Ho heard wo and tho
coastguard had been warned and wcro
on the look-out, so ho determined tw
run tho tubs right into tho harbor,
From tho stern of tlio gig of tho barquo
Esther, of Newcastle, which wo had
soarchod so thoroughly, a stout cord
was hxed below tlio watermark. When
tho boat got to tho landing far away
across the harbor and out of sight nnd
sound of us, forty men wlto had come
into tho town from different directions.
and at different times, camo quietly
down to tho lauding. Iho cord hang
ing from tho boat's stern niter a timo
brought up astoutish rope, and this was
followed by a stoutor still. Upon this
tho men hauled silently but steadily
and tho forty tubs of best French
brandy, which had been sunk just out
sldo tho harbor, wcro pulled in between
tho piers, under our very noses, and
taken away Into tho country."
1 wonder tlio pollco didn't sco
them," said I.
"Ah, sir, thoro was tho funny thing,
That very night, by a curious colncl
donee, tho polico, two in number, from
information received, wont off to watch
a houso on tho outskirts of tho town,
which was to havo been broken into
that night. Tho odd thing was that
thero was no attempt to break Into tho
houso at all. It was funny wasn't it,
"Talking about tho coastguard,
tlioy got dono, too, soractlmos," said
another man. " I well romombor, on
tho Kentish coast, somo years ago, thoro
had b-sn many trios to run goods, but
tho coastguard wore all so sharp that
thoro was no doing any busluoss at all.
My brother-in-law, Join Mason, was
chief boatman on that station, nnd ono
hot summer's day ho wa on tho look
out with his glass, when ho saw a boat
coming toward tho shoro from a smack
which was standing off and on a eood
bit away. Whon tho boat got within a
short dlstanco of tho land, It
turned sharp to tho right,
and began pulling along shoro,
and at tho stuno timo n man took his
hat off nnd hold It over tho namo on
tho stern, so that you couldn't rend It
with a glass from tho land. When Jem
saw this ho clapped his glass together,
ran to tlio station, got two of his men
tojoln him, nnd thoy began following
tho boat along tho cliffs as hard as thoy
could go. Well, sir, it Is tlio very
nastiest coast you over saw, high cliffs,
and valleys between, and It was up ono
hill nnd down another, and up another,
until when tho boat turned Into a sandy
bay, about seven miles from tho sta
tion, Jem mid UU mutes had hardly
strength enough left to gir down and
meet it. However, by taking a couple
of minutes' breathing time, thoy did
just manage to get down to tho beach
us tlio boat's keel touched tho sand.
When tho men saw them they niado an
attempt to back her off, but Jem had
hold of her, and they found It was no
go. Jem felt well rewarded for all ho
had gone through when ho found three
nico littlo brandy-tubs lying at the bot
tom of tho boat. So ho takes all four
men into custody, and nicely thoy
grumbled and growled over their HI
hick, and cursed Jem's sharp eyes and
so on. The noxt thing was to get tliein
all to the station, but when Jem pro
posed that they should bear a hand with
the tubs, devil a bit would thoy. "No,"
says they, "hang it all, they're your
property now, and we haven't nothing
moro to do with them " So at last,
Jem having mado them give him their
words that thoy wouldn't run away
and littlo uso it would havo been, for
they was all well known to him lie
and his two mates wcro obliged to hoist
tlio tubs upon their shoulders und carry
them to the station themselves. The
tubs held about six gallons apiece, and
wcro no light weight to carry seven
miles on a blinding hot summer's after
noon. " Well, sir, Jem says lie doesn't know
to this day how he got over them seven
miles, but at last, dead beat, they did
ust manage to crawl up to the station
and get those blessed tubs off their
shoulder at last. It was only tho
thought of the share that would bu coili
ng to them of this seizure that pre-
euted them from breaking down alto
gether long before they got homo.
" As soon as they recovered them
selves a little bit they sets to work to
iraw the bungs und measure tho stuff.
It turned out excellent quality, but not
so strong as they hoped, fur all three
tubs was full up to tho bung with salt

About TjcikI Pencils.
It will perhaps surprise some of our
readers, pays tho American Otoccr,
when we state us a positive fact that
lead pencils contain nothing of lead ex
cept in tho name. Yet such is tho truth.
Lead pencil is, iu fact, as much a mis
nomer us it would bo to call a horse a
cow. lied lead Is an oxide of lead, ami
white also a carbonate of that metal,
but tho black lead used in pencils is
neither a inetui nor n compound of
mctul. It is plumbago orgraphite, ono
of tho forms of carbon.
Formerly tho sqnuro pieces of graph
ite, which form tho marking portion of
the pencil, wcro sawed out of largo
masses of that material ; but when pen
cils came into such universal uso it was
found that this method of proceeduro
necessitated so much waste, that it was
quickly discovered that somo other pro-
cuss must bo used in order to utilize the
wastage. In such cases IIir want is
seldom felt before some ready inventor's
brain supplies tlio remedy. So it was
ipro. After tho experimenting neces
sary to bring any invention down to a
practical working basis, tho following
method was matured :
Tho fragments of graphite aro ground
fine, calcined and mixed with pure clay.
1 his clay has been prepared by dillus
ng it through water, allowing tho
coarser particles to settle, drawing off
tho milky fluid from tlio top and letting
it settlo again. This latter sediment is
exceedingly lino and plastic, and after
being dried on linen filters is lit for uso.
It is then mixed witli powdcrcil graphite
in various proportions, according to tho
degree of hardness required iu a pencil
two parts of clay to ono of graphite
being used for a lino, hard grade, equal
parts for a soft one, and Intermediate
mixtures for tho grades between.
Tho materials, after being mixed, nro
triturated or kneaded with water until
tlioy aro about the consistency of dough
This is pressed Into grooves in an oth.
crwiso smooth board, dried in tho mold
by a moilorato heat, then taken out nnd
baked In covered crucibles in a furnace
Sometimes tho dough is compressed
a strong receiver and forced out throu
a small hole in it thread of tho shape
required, then dried nnd baked as
Tho grade of lead depends also part
ly upon the degree of heat to which it
is exposed in tlio furnace Leads in
tonded for very lino work, like nrchi
tcclural drawing, etc., aro reheated af
tor tlio baking and immersed in melted
wnx or suet.
Tho wood used forull tho bettor kind
of pencils is tho Florida red cedar. It
Is first thoroughly seasoned, then saw
cd Into strips, dried again, and then cut
into strips of proper slzo for pencils
They nrs grooved by machinery, tho
leads nro glued Into tho grooves and tho
other half of tho wood glued on. After
being dried under pressure, they aro
rounded or othcrwlso shaped by a kind
of lathe or cutting machine, then polish
od by nnothoropcration, and sometimes
painted or varnished by a third, which
feeds tho pencils from a hopper and
turns thorn around undor tho brush
Thoy nro noxt cut tho right length by
circular saw, and the ends mado smooth

packing room to be packed for sale

Tim llobollnk's Song.
I havo noticed that tho bobolink does
not sing tho samo in different localities.
In New Jersey It has ono song; on tho
Hudson a slight variation of tho same,
nnd on tho high grass lands of tho In
terior of tho Stale, qulto a different
strain clearer, mora distinctly nrticu
latcd, and runningoffwlthmorosparklo
nnd liltingncss. It reminds ono of the
clearer mountain nlr nnd tho translu
cent sprlng-wntor of thoso localities. I
never could inako out what tho bobo
link says in Now Jersey, but in certain
districts In this Stnto his enunciation Is
qulto distinct. Somotlinos ho begins
with tho word neguc, grgue. Then,
ngaln, initio fully, be true tome, Clarsy,
le true to me, Clarsij, Clarsy, thence
full tilt into his Inimitable song, inter
spersed in which the words kick your
tipper, kick your slipper, nnd temper
ance, temperance (tlio last with a pe
culiar nasal resonance), nro plain
ly heard. At its best, it is a
remarkable performance, a unlquo
performance, as it contains not the
slightest hint or suggestion, cither in
tone, or manner, or effect, of any other
bud-song to bo heard. Tho .bobolink
as no mato or parallel in any part of
tlio world. Ho stands alono. Thoro Is
no closely allied species. Ho Is not a
lark, nor n finch, nor a warbler, nor a
thrush, nor a starling. Ho Is nn excep
tion to many well known rules. Ho is
tlio only ground-bird known to mo3f
marked and conspicuous plumage. Ho
tho only bluck-and-whlto bird wo
have, and, what Is still moro odd, ho Is
black beneath and white abovo tho
revcrso of the fact in all other cases.
I're-emiiicntly it bird of tho meadow
m lug the breeding season, and asso
rted with clover, and daisies, nnd
butter-cups, as no other bird is, ho yet
has the look of an interloper or a new
comer, nnd not of ono to the manor
The bobolink has an unusually full
throat, which may help account for his
great power of song. No bird has yet
been found that could imitate him or
even repeat or suggest a single note, as
f his song wcro the product of a new
et of organs. Thoro is a vibration
about it and a rapid running over the
keys that is the despair of other song
sters. It is said that tho mocking-bird
is dumb in tlio presence of the bobolink.
My neighbor has an English sky-lark
that was hatched and reared in captivi
ty. I ho bird is a most persistent and
oeiferous songster, and fully us success
ful a mimic us the mocking-bird. It pours
ut a strain that is a regular mosaic
f nearly all the bird-notes to be heard,
its own proper lark-song forming a
kind of bordering for tho wholo. Tho
notes of tho pliiubc-bird, the purplo
finch, the swallow, tho yellow-bird, tho
king-bird, tho robin and others, aro
endored with perfect distinctness and
iccuracy, but not a word of tho bobo
link's, though tho lark must have heard
its song every day for four successive
summers, it was the ono conspicuous
noto in the fields around that the lark
made no attempt to plagiarize. Ho
could not steal the bobolink's thunder.

H)0 especially for tho boy Kalph. Mrs.
Tilton put it in tho bank without say-
ng any thing about it totho boy. When
Theodora learned what his wifo had
hnio he expressed anger not so much
it her refusal to profit personally by
his labors, as at the fact that sho did
not acquaint Kalph with tlio pecuniary
evidence of Ids father's regard for him.
He, a few days ago, induced tho child
to visit him, when, putting him into a
carriage, liu drove ovor to New Jersey,

Mrs. Tilton had no intimation of her
husband's intention until sho found her
self deprived of her child, when sho bo-
camo almost ftinllo with grief. Under
tlio law of New Jersey tho father is tho
recognised guardian of tho boy after ho
