The above cablegram was sent from
Berlin to the police of New York and
received five days before the Alori,.
was due in New York. A wireless was
also sent to the captain of tllhe ship
asking if any one answering the dle
scription was on hotrd his vessel. Thi.

The wireless was received by Captain
Davidson of the Aloric when the steaili

touched at any iport. She haltld passed
Gibraltar in brond daylight in the mid
die of the strait, and it would haIve
been impossible for any one to leave
her even if he had had the wherewith

What had become of him?
It is true that a man answering the
description given of Gottlieb sailed
from Nice on the Aloric, and he was
the man the request from Berlin re
ferred to. But his name was not Gott
lileb, nor was he a German citizen. lie
was a Russian Pole tnamed Blamisky.
wanted by the czar of Itussia to work
1 in the Siberian mines. An otticer of
p the secret Russian po!lce hlad traced
him to Berlin, and it was he who had
done the forging, sending messages in
the name of the Berlin authorities.
The usual passage of ships between
* Gibraltar and New York is to the
southward of the island Madeira. On
the 10th of November, 19-, a yacht
I bearing the name Nihil on her stern
left Funchal, the principal port of
d that island, and steered eastward. She
had made some fifty knots when sev
eral sails appeared on the horizon, and
all turned their prows toward the
Nihil. When they came near together
the captain of one of them signaled
that the Aloric was in latitude 30 de
grees 20 minutes. longitude west of
r Greenwich 12 degrees 45 minutes, and
would pass Madeira about fifty miles
south of Funchal at 12 o'clock that
night. Whereupon the captain of the
Nihlil signaled the little fleet to steer
by different courses to a point south
of Funchal fifty miles and east of the
Funchal meridian thirty miles.
That same night the tall steerage
passenger on the Aloric, after all ex
cept the ship's watch had turned in.
stole along by a route that would
render him unseen toward the after
deck. His size since he had turned in a
had increased so that his girth meas
ured some twelve inches more than be
fore and proportionately on the other
parts of his body. He carried two tin
cans-one hermetically sealed, the oth
er opening by a spring upon pressing
on a button. Both these cans were at
tached to his body by a small chain.
Blamisky reached the stern of the I
ship anobserved and found no one
there. The night was clear and the
sea was smooth, a long swell only pass
Ing from southeast to northwest The
fugitive looked up to the stars, mutter
ed a prayer and. mounting the taifrail
jamped over into the ocean. t
He sank but a few feet, for under
his clothes was an india rubber encase t
ment which he had blown full of alr.
He took no action whatever, merely a
watching the lights of the receding I
ship. Though his escape depended upon t
her leaving him alone upon boundless e
waters, he saw her recede with a kind
of awe. An hour later when the last
glimmer had gone out he pressed the I
button on one of his tin boxes and
took out an ordinary can opener, leav
ing in the box some food and a bottle
of water. With the instrument, hold- u
ing the other tin box above his head, ie,
cat a hole in the tin. took out a rocket
and a patent cigar lighter. Holding
the rocket in his hand. he lighted the
fuse with the latter. The rocket went d
high in the air.
He watched eagerly for a response.
but none appeared. In half an hour t
he sent up another rocket, then another 0
till he had Bfired six rockets. After that
a breeze sprang up. the waves fresh- a

drenched with sea water. But the last
one he fired brought a response. A t

JOYS OF LIFE.
Live while you are alive. In
other words, enjoy this life as it
comes to you. Listen to the bird
songs and the voices of the chil
dren. Linger to watch the sunset
or the opening of a flower. Take
into your life the goodness, the
pleasure and the brightnress of every
day. for "we shall pas this way
but once," and then when you
reach the last day that is given you
here you will be content and can
say. "I have lived."

Charm of the Music of Their Voices to
Their Little Ones.
They came to me in a dream-those
singing mothers. A long, slow pro
cession of shadowy forms, beautiful as
rainbows and as wonderful, singing a
strange haunting melody full of mys
tery. First came troops of girl moth
ers. clasping their little babes with a
tenderness that was half fear and
with wide. inquiring eyes filled with
holy light and the consciousness of the
deepest realization of life. Then came
strong mothers of youth, leading hap
py faced children and confident with
a sense of power, buoyant with hope
and radiant with promise. Last of all
came silver mothers of men, leaning
on their stalwart sons and, though
bowed with years. yet gloriously
young in spirit, hallowed by memories
and glowing with the victory of
achievement. And I. a mother, watch
ing these pass by and listening to their
haunting music, felt as never before
the divine significance of motherhood
and all the hidden meanings in the

The Crucibles Used In the New York
In the government assay office on
Wall street. New York. there is a cor
ner that looks very much like a mug
rack in a country barber shop, where
every customer has his individual mug
highly decorated in gilt letters.
On this rack are perhaps fifty cruci
bles for melting down gold. The cru
cibles are decorated with crude nit
tials and numerals and are the proper
ty of the biggest gold mining corpora
tions in North and South America.
The reason for the individjal mugs
is that the clay of crucibles takes tiup
a considerable quantity of gold in the
process of smelting which otherwise
would be lost to the customer bringing
the gold to the government to be re
fined. After two or three smeltings
the clay is saturated and takes up no
more gold. When it is finally suc
ceeded by a new crucible it is returned
to the customer to be broken up for
its hidden gold.
Mugs that are used for melting down
random lots of gold are carefully pre
served by the government refiners and
sold. Uncle Sam pockets the proceeds.
as in these random lots there is no
way of computing to what amount
each of perhaps twenty customers
may be entitled. It is only the smelt
ing concern that sells the government
enough gold at one time to monopolize
a single melting that obtains the right
to a mug on the rack. - New York
Ice Cream and a Nerve.
Why do we sometimes get an ache In
the nose when eating ice cream. There
is a nerve running along the back of
the nose which doctors call the an
terior palatine nerve. This has a
branch running along the base of the
nasal cavity and another branch run
ning along the palate. The ends of
these branches Join through finer
branches which run through openings
in the palate near the front teeth.
When we get some Ice crm the ite
mouth and keep it in front for a mo
meat so that the irritation produced
by the cold reaches the fine connect
ing branches the sensation omay he

ritation of this braneb produaes the
sensation of pain. We get the same
sensation when breathing very cold
