The Modern Method a Survival of a
If fair young women sponsors who I
take a great deal of pride in breaking
a bottle of champagne over the prow
of a ship as she slides into the water t
for her first float knew something
about the origin and significance of
the launching custom. the chances are
they would not be so eager to see the
bottle crash and the foaming liquid
wet the sides of the vessel.
It is a survival of a barbaric custom
when sacrifices were made to the gods
and some living victim or offering was
held up and its throat cut so that the
blood tiowed over the prow of the ship
geing launched. The vessel was bap
tized in warm blood. Now sparkling
wine or pure water is used, and the
change has many advantages, though
the symbolism remains.
There is another curious custom
aboard ship that is interesting in the
way it has been handed down to us.
When a dignitary visits a foreign coun
try, the moment that his ship enters
port a formal salute is fired as a signal
of welcome. This custom was observ
ed years ago, when it was considered t
the correct thing for a port to fire its
guns to show the visiting stranger that
the citizens and authorities placed such
confidence in his friendliness that it
was not considered necessary to keep
the guns loaded, so all the shot was dis
charoed.-New York Herald.

THE AIR BRAKE.
It Was Ushered Into Actual Use In
Most Dramatic Fashion.
The air brake: was ushered into actn
al use in most dramatic fashion. The
trial trip occurred in April, 1869. The
train selected' was the Steubenville ac
commodation, running between Pitts
burg and Steubenville, 0. -
.When the train was going at full
speed, suddenly as he came around a
sharp curve the engineer saw a stalled
wagon in the middle of the track dead
ahead. With only hand brakes- noth
ing could have- prevented a terrible
smashup. The formal time for the
trial of the air brake had not come,
but the brake was there, and in des
peration. not believing for a moment
that the thing could possibly avail, the
engineer threw on the air. But it did

His Last Retort.
The story is told of a well known
Chicago criminal lawyer whose valua
ble services were retained by . the a
wealthy relatives of a man accused of c
murder in a southwestern state. r
The case was a bad one, for the evi
:lence was overwhelmingly against the
accused.. Despite this fact the lawyer a
ontrived by the skillful exercise of a
every trick and maneuver known to 'T
the profession to secure the disagree
ment of juries, delays, appeals. etc..
ill at last the case was brought before
ee supreme court of the United States.
One day in an interview between the
prisoner and his counsel the former
asked, "In case the supreme court
should aecide against me, what will I,

Parson Brownlow and the Democrats.
One of the famous retorts in history
ccurred when Parson Brownlow was
war governor of Tennessee. On one of
his journeys he attended service at a
sm~all Methodist church in the upper ,
part of the state. The parson was a
devout Methodist and seldom allowed ,
his political rancor to interfere with
the charity of his religious faith. On
this occasion, being a visiting clergy
man, he was placed in the "amen cor
nr" near the pulpit. The local min
ister was as ardently Democratie in
his views as Governor Brownlow was
Republican, in the prayer which fol
lowed the lengthy sermon the minister
began to call on the Lord for grace
for his favorites. *'God bless Felix
Grundy," he began. Parson Brownlow
moved uneasily in his seat, but re
sponded with a conscientious "Amen."
"God bless Robert 'E. Lee," concluded a
the preacher. A fainter "Amen" from
Parson Brownlow. "God bless the S
whole Democratic party," cried the s
preacher, waxing in fervor as he pro- in
ressed. This was too much for the s
overnor. With a bound he was on 1
his feet, shouting:a

v'ine grace and exhaust the whole plan a
of salvation" . t

during the great hauling season in win

The walls of the inns are of mud
plastered on a center wall made by
weaving reeds together. The windows
are mostly of oiled paper, with possi
bly one small pane of glass in the
center. The rafters are rounded tim

a layer of coarse niatting and then
packed mud. In the cities the better
inns have brick walls and tiled roofs. -
but are otherwise about the same.
It was necessary to sleep on the

these inns the first place entered is the
kitchen, a square space with mud floors
and raised m' ovens with clay and

On each side 'were ranged -the

selves in their own blankets and sleep
side by side, with their feet t9 the
wall and their heads to the center
aisle. A fire underneath runs the
length of each "range," and a fire at
one end furnishes the hot air, which
passes through and out at a mud

The Dangerous Age.
If a man is going to commit a crime
during his lifetime the chances are.
that he will do it at the age of twenty
nine. It Is a curious fact that statis
ties have shown that man is more dan
gerous at this period of his life than
at any other. The majority .of crimi
nals in the state of New York have for
some time been of this age. The gen
eral supposition is that men have at
tained the hghest development of their
mental and physical powers at twenty
nine, and they are supposed to be able
to distinguish between right ~and
wrong and to realize the consequences
liable to follow the indulgence of ei
ther. Next to the age of twenty-nine
the greatest number of criminals have
been twenty-one, twenty-seven or for
ty-five. years of age. The intervening
years, in which men do not commit
as many crimes, have not been explain
ed by expert criminologists who have
made investigations proving the above
statements to be true and who are still
working on a solution of the problem.

fiercely for the life buoys and thrust

I've known others who became so
stupefied with fright as to resist all at

left to die and having to be forcibly
thrown into the lifeboat. Some per

and I've known several cases where
they have in a frenzy committed sui

into the sea and drowning themselves,
and one man to insure his sinking
filled his pockets with coal.
