Nothing certain is known of its Lotan

been received packages of a rubber

does not bear cutting up well. It is the

TWO FEET OF ICE ON DECK.
WVild Run of an American Ship IBefore
a (.;ale Off Cape Horn.
Th, Ame'rican ship W. F. Babcock,
which arrived from Liverpool a short
time ago, docked at Green street wharf
and began discharging her cargo of coal,
says the San Francisco Examiner. The
Babcock plre.ented the appearance of a
yacht before her hatches were opened,
so spick and span did her houses, spars
and d(lck look. The trimness of the
craft gave little indication of the ex
perience she had while rounding the
Horn. From the east coast of Pata
gonia to the western shore she was
twenty-one (lays, during which time she
was driven nearly 300 miles southward.
The vessel would have been out several
weeks longer but for the bold run
made by Capt. Graham. The wind
veered lo the souathwest and Graham
took advantage of it. From noon one
day to noon of the next the ship tray
ersed nearly 250 miles, with heavy seas
washing over her from both sides. Capt.
Graham remained on deck all night
lashed to the wheel. He gave himself
enoilgh rope to carry him to both sides
of the vessel, and more than once he
was knocked down by the pitching of
the ship. "It was a wild night," said
the captain yesterday, "and we took big
chances making our we.y through the
pelting seas. The water came over
from ljoth sides, the wind blowing from
one direction and the current running
down like a mill-race from the other.
It was intensely cold, the wind blowing
almost directly from the south pole.
The crew felt the bitterness of the
weather very keenly, some of them be
ing frost-bitten, but I did not mind it
at all. It is possible ..hat my anxiety
for my ship kept my blood in circula,
tlon, so that I was oblivious to all other
thoughts but the safety of the vessel
it seemed to me that as son as the
spray struck the rigging it would be
come frozen. The main deck war filled
with water, which the scuppers were
Insufficient to unload. The result war
that by morning we had two feet of sol
id ice on (leck, and the ice was so thick
on the running rigging that the latter
could not be hauled through the blocks
As soon as day broke I had the crew
out smashing the ice from the rigging
with axes and hammers. When the
men had the rigging clear their atten
tion was turned to the deck, and it was
a frightful job to break the ice up
there. We made considerable time by
the run, but lost most of it in the Pa
cific. I was more than three weirs
on a trip that should have occupied six
days." The W. F. Babcock is one of
the handsomest American ships in port,
and British vessels could take points
from the sweep of her deck and sym
metry of her spars. She is ab~att 250 feet
in length and forty-three feet in
breadtL of beam, ant carries over 3,300
tons ci cargo. Capt. Graham is ac
companied by his wife and their little
child. Mrs. Graham is a Seattle girl
and was married in her native town
Since then she has always traveled with
her husband and is very fond of the
SuggestMlas for the Cook.
Don't throw away a lemon or orange
peel. Instead keep it for kindling thz
fire. Put the peelings under the stoire
in tin pans and let them stay there
until thoroughly dry, and then they are
ready to kindle the ifFe.
In cooking it is well to remember
that soda should never be dissolved
in iot water, because if it is some of
the gases would then be liberated and
wasted, and a greater amount of soda
would be needed to make good this
waste than if the soda were dissolved
in cold water. If a bird or meat is to
be dredged with flour, salt should be
put on before it is cooked, but the rest
of the seasoning is not to be added
until it is taken from the fire. In
preparing soup stock remember that
the less fat there is in the stock pot
the more delicate will be the flavor of
the soup. Cut off as much fat as pos
sible before putting the meat into the
pot. A delicate flavor of ham will im.
prove the stock, but it must be very
slight An ounce of ham to a gallon of
water is a generous alloanfc.'
