Signaling at Sea.
The custom of signaling at sea by
Smeans of various colored flags Is very
ancient, and the method seems to have
been brought to a degree of develop
ment bordering very closely on perfec
tion. Many people have been astonish.
ed at the length of messages conveyed
in a few moments and with the use of
but half a dozen flags in various com
binations, and when the extent of the
language and the complexity of many
necessary messages are considered the
eighteen flags in the signal flag locker
seem very inadequate. However, it
must be remembered that the signal
cod.e tilizes a sort of shorthand, and
many long messages, known to be of
frequent occurrence, have been con
tracted to a single showing of flags
in a given combination. The number
e flags hoisted when a signal io made
never exceeds four. With the eighteen
fags of various colors, using four for
each signal no fewer than 78,642 com
bimatlons can be made.
An English Ghost.
A Westmoreland ghost used to haunt
the shores of Windermere, where the
Lowthers from time immemorial have
been lords of the lake-the "crier of
aifer." One tempestnous nsght In
prereformation times a cry was

man at the Nab inn-"A boatU" The
terryman, against all his eonies' per.
suasions at the Inn, set out. After
many hours he reacbed the Nab again,
his boat dragged down by some un
seen weight and htmsoelf with hair on
end. a raving lunatlc. Soon he died,
and every stormy night his wraith was
