THE ATLANTIC LINERS
Signs, Signals and Flags Used by
the Various Companies.
COLORS OF THE BIG FUNNELS
In Some Cases They Are Very Much
Alike, but the Night Lights Used by
the Vessels of the Different Lines
Are Quite Distinctive.
It is said that but comparatively few
of the maniy thousands of persons th a
each year patronize the various lin
of steamships crossing the Atlantie
are famil:ir with the various distin
guishing signs and signals enployed byI
the vessels of the r'sp-ective eomle

tell at a glance to whait line any give
ship belongs-the Amerienn line. for
About all that one must remember Ii
the case of the vessels of our own line
Is that the funnels are black, each vit'h
Its white band. When you see an At
lantic liner at night with a blue light
forward, a red light amilships and a
blue light aft you know at once that
she is of the American line.
All Cunarders show a red funnel
with black rings and a black top.
while the night sgnals consist of a
blue light and two roman candles.
each throwit:' out six blue balls.
There are but two of the leading
transatlantic lines the ships of which
mrry cream colored funnels-the North
German Lloyd and the Holland-Amer
ca lines. The first employs a perfect
ly plain funnel wLhout any other
color than cream, and the latter shows
a cream funnel with a white band and
green borders. Signals displayed at
might by these lines are. in the case of
the North German Lloyd. two blue red
ghts, one forward and one aft, and, in
the case of the H1olland-America line, a
treen light forward and aft, with a
white light under the bridge.
Two lines use buff tunnels, the White
Star and the ILamburg-American, the
lifference between the two being that.
while the former shows a black top,
the latter is plain buff throughout.
White Star night signals are two green
ights flashed simultaneously.
Quite a number of lines carry black
tnnels-the American with a white
band, as mentioned above; the Anchor,
which Is entirely black; the Bristol,
with a variegated and fancy touch, the I
black smokestack being relieved by a
white band In the center and a blue
star in the middle of the white band.
In the regular service of the Hamburg
American line, as distinguished from
the express service, we find that the
olor Is plain black, while the Red
Star Is black with a white band and
t black top.
The Scandinavian-American and the
Wilson lines have red and black fun
2els, black in the first case with a red
op and red funnel with a black top
n the second.
The red funnel of the French line
las a black top similar to the funnels
)f other lines, but with di!Terent pro
ertions of color. On this line the
dght signala are a blue light forward,
i. white light amidships and a red
ght aft, forming the French tricolor.
At night the Anchor line of vessels'
hows a white light, then a red- The

the Hamburg-American ships for bothi
ervices, regular and express, show!t

e aft and one amidships, a'l flashed
ogether. The Scandinavian line em
loys one white-red. followed by one
ed-white light, and the Wilson putsC
ut two red lights about sixty feet
It will be observed from the fore
~oing that the night signals of all the
ifferent lines vary, while the funnels
some cases are very similar. This,
owever, does not lead to confusion,

A Story of Magic and Credulity In the
No snake that ever lived won greater
fame for the time than .\lexander's.
Lucian tells the story. .Altlonius, a
master of the magic arts, had many
disciples. among whomn was a practic
iug physician wh. lived in .Mbonoti
chus, a small town on the shore of the
Black sea. There Alexander was born
of humble parentage and imbibed from
the old doctor all that he had learned
from Apollonius of medicine and mag
Ic. He was a lad of striking appear
ance, tall, handsome. with a tine head
of hair, lustrous brown eyes and a
voice sweet and limpid. "God graut."
wrote Lucian. who knew him. -that I
may never meet wvith such another.
Ils coming was woinderful. his dex
terity matchless. ilis eagerness fo'r
k~nowlede. his c-apai-ity for le:rniiz
an! pmower of mnenry were equally
Such was the well favored young
peasant who sallied forth from his na
tire town in search of fame and for
tune. Soon he fell in with one Co
connas. a shrewd tipster for the races
and somewhat of a juggler. The two
rogues joined forces and meandered
about telling fortunes. Arrilag at
Pella, they found a great number of
huge, harmless snakes which lived in
the houses. played and slept with the
children and destroyed poisonous rats.
Alexander promptly purchased one of
the nrgest. a veritable monster. so
tame that it would coil about his body
and remain in any desired position.
Then he made a human face for it out
of linen, painted It ingeniously and
shapd It so that the mouth would
open and shut by an arrangement of
horschair, letting the forked tongue
shoot In and out at the will of the
master. Having no further use for
Coconnas. he either administered poi
son to him or let him die *om some
Infection and returned with his snake
to his native town. There he declared
himself a prophet and announced that
the god Aesculapius was about to ap
pear. The people were credulous. ex
citable and eager for a new divinity.
When the great day arrived Alexan
der pretended to discover in a puddle
of water a goose egg which he had
placed there after removing the con
tents, substituting a small embryo
snake just born and carefully sealing
the shell with wax. When the multitude
had gathered he broke the shell and
produced the tiny creature, which in
a few moments grew to be the monster
from Pella by the simple process of
substitution. Thereafter the big snake,
believed to be Aesculaplus. led a busy
life. He gave seances. teld fortunes in
writing and even spoke freely. with
the aid of the prophet's ventriloquial
powers. Alexander grew rich and pow
erful. kept a small army of retainers
and spies, wielded no little influence
ver the government even at Rome and
ied at a ripe old age in the fullness of
his renown. What became of the snake
nobody knows. Probably at the last
the prophet dispatched the faithful
reature to prevent the discovery of his
leception after his death.-George Har
