"For Four Long Days We've Stood
the Gaff," Writes Sailor In
Cnpt. Frank Itufus Pendleton, first
officer of the freight steamer Audio,
Is handy with the pen and finds It
eusy to keep the log In rhyme. In
a letter to his place In Belfast, Me.,
ho thus describes the Andra's passage
across the Buy of Biscay, according
to a Bangor (Me.) dispatch to the
New York World.
"The Bay of Biscay's on the bum,
Old Neptune he Is full of rum, and
wo are sorry to have come into the
Bay of Biscay. We're nearly full of
Biscay brine; we swallow quarts from
time to time; I think we're pickled
for all time witli salty, bitter Blscoy.
"The skipper at the clouds does
stare; lie Jumps around mid tears his
hnir, and says 'twould make an angel
sweur, this old Buy of Biscay. The
chief looks o'er his bunkers sharp,
and says that It would be no lark If
coal should fall short on this ark, in
this old Buy of Biscay. Five passen
gers nro with us here, and they have
given up, I fear, nil they've eaten
for n year to hungry, hungry Biscay.
Our parson puts all tears to rout, he
trusts In God, his heart Is stout, but
wonts to swing the lifeboat out, for
the devil rules old Ulscuy. The good
ship at the seas docs bound ; she tries
In vain to knock them down, then
backs awny and goes out round the
mountainous Kens of Biscay.
"For days and days we hob around,
our only motion's up and down, the
old ship makes a poor clown
for acrobatic Biscay. The cooks are
having lots of fun as after pots and
pans they run, but dinner's always
sure to come, they nre the cooks for
Biscay. The engineers down In the
hole, they only say gol blame my soul,
just you see this old ship roll, on
bloody, bloomln' Biscay. For four long
days we've stood the gaff, but not dis
couraged, no. not half ; we're getting
used to Biscay's chuff, we'll soon be
out of Biscay. There's one thing sure,
I've lots of time to put this old bay
Into rhyme; we'd rather put It far be
hind, this restless Bay of Biscay.
"The good old ship she Isn't weak,
old Biscay cannot make her leak, or
even make her timbers creak; she
defies the Bay of Biscay. She's load
ed deep with Iron ore, it tries her to
the very core; she doesn't even pinch
a door, she laughs at rough old Bis
cay. Our company says the cap's a
dear, as to the channel we draw near,
because from Biscay he's won clear,
a conqueror of Biscay. Now, today
the weather's fine, we're leaving Bis
cay far behind ; so 1 will close this
nwful rhyme, and bid good-by to
"Why did you turn your late guest
"Because he took me in."

"Sure, and it was also well done."

Coal Mine Burning Since 1859.
There is u burning coal mine be
tween Summltt II til and Coldale, Pa.
The fire started one morning In Feb
ruary. 1850. when a miner entering
Slope No. 1 of the Lehigh Coal &
Navigation company's mine stopped
to warm his chilled fingers at a fire
burning in n heap of rubbish. That
fire Is still burning.
Engineers, generations of them
have fought the fire and it breathed
its sulphurous breath into their faces,
and went on devouring coal. The
stockholders of the Lehigh company
are willing to pay roundly for the
services of a successful fireman, for
the company certainly does want that
Ore put out.
Many schemes to check the Ore
have been tried, and the latest Is
simplicity Itself: that Is, on paper.
Tnklng the fuel away from the fire by
means of a tunnel which will cut
through the vein being consumed now
Is planned. When the fire arrives at
the tunnel there will naturally be no
coal, and no coal, no fire. It appears
simple, but some of the best engineer
ing talent In the world Is busy on that
tunnel, which Is considered one of the
most gigantic undertakings of Its
Want a Diamond?
French scientists see In flooding of
Perls Jewelry market with millions
of dollars' worth of diamonds, issu
ing from safety deposit vaults of war
profiteers, a sign that French capital
ists are regaining confidence in busi
ness future of the country. It Is
reliably estimated that 50.000.tXX)
francs' worth of "war-profit" diamonds
have been thrown on the French mar
ket in recent months.
A number of cases are on record
where war profiteers, skeptical of the
value of French paper money nnd gov
ernment securities, turned their savlnss
accounts, ranging from 1,000,000,XK
to 3,000,000.000 francs, Into diamonds.
Reai-snred ns to the economic future
of France, they are selling their dia
mond savings nnd employing the pro
ceeds in development of national In
dustries. One result has been a rapid
decline In diamond prices.

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggist!
who arc constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Boot is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
Its remarkable record of success,
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
IsrRo majority of those whose applica
tions are declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease. It is on sale
at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes,
medium and large.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure and
mention this paper. Adv.

Women of Middle Age
Owing to modern methods of living not one woman in a thousand
approaches this perfectly natural change in her life without experi
encing a train of very annoying and sometimes painful symptoms.
Those dreadful hot flashes, smothering spells, fainting spells,
nervous troubles and irregularities are symptoms that -should have
prompt attention. These two letters prove what a successful
remedy Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is for women
at this time of life.
These Two Women Helped During Change of life.
Taunton, Mass. " I could not eat or
Bleep for six months,had fainting spells
and could not walk without help for
three month8,caused by female trouble.
My cousin, who was a doctor, told me
to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and it helped me greatly.
Then during the Change of Life I used
the same remedy. I am seventy years
old now and am able to do my own
housework and walk one mile to church
every Sunday morning and evening. I
am recommending the Vegetable Com
pound to my friends having the same
troubles as I had. Your remedy is the
best on earth. I cannot find words
to express my gratitude for it." Mrs.
Susan C. Status, 167 B School St,
Philadelnhio. Pa." I want to lfc vnti
know what good Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has done me. I
had organic troubles and am going
through the Change of Life. I was
taken with a pain in my side and a bad
headache. I could not lie down, could
not eat or sleep. 1 suffered something
terrible and the doctor's medicine did
me no good at all my pains got worse
instead of better. I began taking the)
Vegetable Compound and folt a change)
from the first. Now I feel fine and ad
vise anyone going through the Change
of Life to try it, for it cured me after I
had given up all hopes of getting bettor.
I will tell any one who wnteB to me the
good it has done me." Mrs. JLiroxiust
