BOYS' LIFE AT SEA.
PRENTICE MULFORD TELLS A BIT
OF YOUTHFUL EXPERIENCE.'
First Lessous Taught on Ship Iloard Sail
ors' BUI of Fare learning Good Man
ners A Bully in Authority An "Ordi
Thero wero on board six "boys" besides
myself, and all from tho somo village as
our captain. That was tho principal rea
son for shipping on hi3 vessel. It was
not a good tiling to do, as wo soon found
out. To bo known on board as a friend
or protcgo of tho captain is to draw at
onco a prejudice unfavorable to you from
crew and officers. They think you are
trying to creep in at tho cabin windows.
Tho motto on shipboard is tliat a truo
Bailor must come in through thohawso
holes. That may or may not hold truo,
according to the kind of boy or material
that comes In either way. If a man has
got tho sailor in him it will como out
I was in the second mate's watch. Bo
was a born brute. But he sworo half of
my sickness out of mo, and tho fresh air
and enforced excrciso of pounding tho
rust from tho cliain cable before it was
stowed awuy did tho rest.
Our expenenco was rough. But it was
useful. Wo learned in a short timo many
things our parents had neglected to teach
us, such as tho art of mending and wash
ing our own clothes. Up to tliat timo I
had no idea of tho eternal necessity of
repairs on clothing. My first efforts
with tho needle', ono sunny morning as I
sat on deck, called forth abusho expres
sions regarding my lack of skill from
tho third mato. Ho condescended to
teach me. Our earlier efforts at wash
ing called forth contemptuous expletives
from tho old sailors, who said that such
badly washed clothes hung in tho rigging
wcrojt disgrace to tho ship. Wo reported
at times to a sea wash, wliich consists in
tying a flannel shirt to a lino, flinging it
overboard and lotting it tow after tho
chip. Sometimes wo hauled in our lines
less tho shirt from badly tied knots, and
sometimes, when tho ship was surging
along at tho rato of ten knots an hour,
wo hauled in a shirt less a good deal of
tho warp, for a bit of cloth won't last
long when treated in this manner.
SAILORS' DILI. OP FAKE.
Our boa faro was "lobscouse" and a
fluid called coffeo for breakfast; "salt
horse" and hard tack for dinner on Mon
day, pork and beans on Tuesday, spit
beef again on Wednesday, salt fish 'on
Friday, and best again on Saturdays and
Sundays: a fluid called tea, sweetened in
bulk with molasses for supper, and on
"duff days" (Thursday ana Sunday) a
lmnp of plain boiled flour, without
plums or other fruit to glvo it tno true
tnwaidnes3 of a pudding, This taught
ua how wo had been humored and pai&
percd at home. I'cr the first time in our
lives v.o really appreciated thovaluoof
our hotco brcaktasts, with milk in ow
coffee, buckwheat cakes, and a scoro of
other thi.'igJ. v.l.lch wo thought camo a

LEARK1KO GOOD MANNEH3.
I am almost ashamoxl to say that it
v,.i9 necessary for us boys to go to sea in
order to learn somo necessary manners.

off without baying nword, ns wo hud
often dono in somewhat similar circum
stances itli our parents, leaving them in
doubt whether wo had heard them or
not. Then w o wero required to chow a
certain deference, even, to the older
sailors, but wo had not been in tho hul it
of doing to many of tho grown up men
of our village. If n boy on shipbo.tul

guishcd ladies. About 2 p. m. Tues
day thero anncarcd at the rosidenca of
Domingo OHva, criminal judgo of tho
district court of La Cathedral, on
Soveniy-fourth strcot, a negro bearing
a small writing desk richly adorned
with red and blue satin ribbons, and
with a tiny kov attached. It was ad
drcs'cd to "Domingo Oliva." Hand
ing tho package to a servant, tho ne
gro requested that it bo delivered to
bonorita. Then ho disappeared. Tho
pakago was sot on tho parlor table,
whoro a few moments later Mrs.
Clotillo Oliva, tho judge's wifo and
their 17-ycar-old danghter, Fabriclta,
found it and began to admiro its beauty.
Tho youngest lady triod to open tho
desk with tho little koy mentioned
above, but she had so fittlo tucoess
that she handed tho key to her mother
requesting her to try her skill. Mrs.
Oliva accordingly drow tho chair in
which Bhe was sitting up to tho tablo
and triod to open the desk, wliich
Hccnicd jaramod in somo way. At last
hc violently turned to tho right, when
an explosion similar to tho roar of a
cannon took place, and Mrs. Oliva
found hersolf bathed in blood. Tim
desk contained an infernal niaehinc,
intended, without doubt, to murder
Oliva.' Mrs. Oliva. recoivod an ugly
wound, but tho doctors hope for her
recovery. Thero is no cluo to tho
pcrpctratois of tho outrage.
