"These tales of the ships that nerer
came back are sad enough, but it's the
ship that never went oat, the ghosts of
the Fea, that give the sailor man a
cithTiy foflius rluiu he mceta them out
where the waved aro rolling high and
the winds are sinking funeral songs. "
Th spr-aVcr was Mate Bob Ailing;
v. Iio lias followed tiie sea as boy and
man for nearly ho years. Surrounded by
a pT.mp of interested listeners ia the
public room of the Suilors' JXuppy home
in South street, Mate Bob, as all the
sailors call him. was telling stories of
strange sights that he has witnessed at
Eea. Ailing is now mate of a coastwise
fishing schooner, bnt in the old days be
sailed in some of the largest trading ships
and the strongest whalers that ever
sailed ont of an American port flying
the stars and stripes.
"As I said, boys," the old man went
ou, "it's the ships that never went out
from any port that a Eailor nver forgets
when he sees one of them. We may re
member the ships that went ont and
never came baric for a time if we had a
shipmate atioard, but tva can forget.
But there's no foruttiug a ghoat of the
"It was back iu the early fifties that
I saw my first sea host, and today I
can shut my eye and sea it just as plain
an I could see it then. I was a sailor on
a fishing schooner, and we were catch
ing cod off the coast of Newfoundland.
We had been oat ten days and were al
most ready to start for home with a full
carpo when a nasty off shore breeze
came on lata ouo evening. Wc stood out
to sea, for tbcro was a hoavy fog along
with tho wind. It was a stiff and steady
blow, so we rotlo tho waves under bare
poles during tho ni.ht, waiting for day
light and th. fog to lift before shaping
our course for home.
"All through tho night wo sent up
rockets at intervals and kept the ship's
bell going, becaoso we could not see
ten fett ahead at times on account of
the fog. But it was nearly morning be
fore wo heard or saw aa suiswering sig
nal to watn uj that another vessel was
"I was on the early morning watch,
and about half an hour before daylight
I made out a signal light a short dis
tance ahead on enr port bow. It was a
strange light, a pale blue in color, and
it flashed up ami down at irregular in
tervals. The fog was still thick, and it
was impossible to tell how near we were
to the vessel.
"I called tho mate on deci and point
ed to tho sfrango signal light. lie look
ed at it a long time, and, with a shake
of his head, said he could not make it
out at all. The lights showed that the
vessel could not lie far away, so we
changed our course a little, and then
fired a gun. There was no answer, and
we fired again and again with the same
"By aud by I saw that the mate was
very gravo and nncvr looking. He was
pacing back and forth on the deck, not
minding tho cold, misty rain that was
falling, and all the time ho kept his
eyes fixed on that queer looking bluish
light that flashed up out of the fog and
darkness alidad. At last I made so bold
as to ask the mate what he thought of
" 'It's a ghost '.' ho said, looking at
mo with a pitying look.
" 'A ghoet" says I.
" 'Yes, a ghost of tho sex Wait till
the fog lifts. You may see it then. r
"The fog lifted a bit when daylight
came, and tin n I saw the ghost, as the
mate said I would.
"Rising grim and' white out of the
fog and waves that were rolling high, I
saw a full rigged ship of queer design.
The wind was blowing half a gale, but
not a mast or pole of the ghost ship
bunt an inch, anil not one of the broad
white sails seemed to strain at the ropes.
"The phantom was close on our port
bow, and as the fog cleared away we
had a splendid view from her water line
to the top of her masts. With the waves
pitching and rolling mountain high, and
the wind howling around our poles, the
ghost ship was riding out the storm as
steady as a painted ship on a painted
"Every man on board crowded on
deck, and while they had to hold on to
tho railing to keep from being washed
overboard they stood aud gazed at the
phantom ship as Ion,; as it was in sight
Some of them that were a bit religious
like made the sign of the cross, and oth
ers tried to say a bit of a prayer. The
fact is that every man on board thought
tho phantom ship a warning of death.
"The captain went below and drank
hot grog till he was that reckless no
ghost had any terrors for him. Then, as
the wind went down a bit, he ordered
us to make sail and bear down on the
"Cp went our sail in a jiffy, and we
flew along ' before the wind, but we
could set no nearer the phantom ship.
Suddenly we saw the white ghost ship
' lurch forward, her sails trembled for an
I instant, and then she seemed to sink
' straight down into the sea. Ten seconds
' from the time we saw the first quiver of
her sails tho ship had vanished, and we
never saw her again.
"During the day the storm went
down, and putting about we made p t
; in safety. Bat when that schooner sailed
! for the fishing banks again it was with
J an entirely new crew from the captain
; to cabin boy. Not a man who saw the
ghost ship from her deck would sail ou

THE SETTER DCS.
Its SeeaUew Paver Is So Vias as Bs a
Soawre of Wander.
The scenting power of a well bred,
wtll trained setter is a thing wholly
beyond human conception, and the mar
velous exhibitions they give of this
power can scarcely be credited. Indeed
it would not be wise to seriously dis
cuss the quality of a dog's nose were it
not possible to verify the stfries that
might be told of this wonderful power.
Who would believe that a dog going at
a goud gallop, with a dead bird in its
mouth, could sc. nt a live bird on the
ground Hevu-al yards to oim side of his
course? Aud yet there are few sports
men who have not seen a dog point a
live bird with a dead bird in his mouth.
It would seeui as if the scent of the bird
mi near his nose would prevent the dog
from scenting another bird of the same
variety lying close in tlio grass several
yards from him. A man with a bunch
of roses in Lis face would net pretend
he could smell a bunch of similar flow
ers a foot away. If he did, no one wonld
Yet there ia no doubt about tho set
ter being able to smell and point live
birds on the ground while he holds a
dead bird in his mouth. He goes fur
ther than this. He points a dead bird
on the ground with a dead bird in his
mouth, and he knows tho instant he
feels the scent that it is a dead bird.
This fact he expresses in his manner of
pointing, and if it is a wounded bird ho
knows that, too, and indicates the fact
Most dogs are taught to point stanohly
a live bird ami not to point a dead bird.
The dog will go at full speed right up
to his dead binl and never pause a mo
ment If there is a live bird near, be
will point that stauchly, and the
promptness and certainty of his deci
sions show that the instant be catches a
scent he knows whether tho bird is alive
or dead. Ho makes a distinction, too,
between a dead bird, a live bird and a
wounded bird. He points the wounded
bird differently from what he does the
live bird end usually springs iu and
catches it What there is about a wound,
cd bird's scent that he can recognize
instantly is a puzzle to every one who
has thought much of the question.
The other day thero entered a Broad

queer looking little womuu of about GO
years, a perfect type of the shabby spin

great consideration and conversed with

more of those high pressure, passion

Probably it has come to be accepted
as an axiom by most practical steam
engineers that in modern conditions of
working superheating is useless or im
post.! Me. Some reasons for such a belief,
arising out of difficulties experienced,
no docbt there are. But if engineers
generally had fully appreciated the
magnitude of the loss due to condensa
tion in the cylinder it is difficult to
think that superheating would have
been abandoned with so little of a strug
gle to overcome the difficulties, and
that, for so long, while every other
means of securing economy has been
tried, superheating has been neglected.
It is sometimes said that the quantity
of beat in superheated steam in excess
of that in saturated steam is very small.
That is so, of course. But the earlier ex
perience showed that this small quan
tity produced a disproportionately large
beneficial effect. Professor W. C. Un

Fore of Habit.
There are no tables in the houses of

on the floor. A Danish lady employed
several Eskimo womeu to do some wash

that stood on the floor. To make them
more comfortable she had some stools
fetched and placed the tubs upon them.
By and by she looked in to see how they
were getting on, and to her astonish

A young man strode into the Astor

upward, three steps at a time, followed
by the gasping porter, who finally lay
prone ou the stone staircase frantically
holding on to the vanishing coattails.
"Come back," he pleaded, now ia

shying his book onto tho porter's table,

THE "BLOOD LIST."
An Intercatine but Iaeajiny Relic' of ths
An interesting bnt uncanny relic of
tho French revolution was di-jovered
among the papers of on autograph col
lector in Berlin. It was called the
"Blood List" and contains the name,
standing and age of those persons put to
death iu Paris between March, 17i3,
and June 22, 1794. There were 1,514
in all. On the margin of the pages op
posite each name aro a few remarks giv
ing the reasons for tho death of the par
ticular person, and t few of his or her
characteristics. Hi re follow some of the
passages from the "Blood List," which
was afterward published in the Alnia

Am Anecdote of Shelley.
The poet Shelley tells an amusing
story of tho influence that language
"hard to be understood" exercises ou
the vulgar mind. Walking near Covent
Garden, London, he accidentally jostled
against an Irish navvy, w1k, being in a
quarrelsome mood, seemed inclined to
attack the poet A crowd of ragged sym
pathizers began to gather, when Shel
ley, calmly facing them, deliberately
"I have put my band into the ham
per. I have looked on the sacred barley.
I have eaten out of the drum. I have
drunk and am well pleased. I have said
'Knox Ompax,' and it is finished."
The effect was magical. The aston
ished Irishman fell back. His friends
began to question him. "What bar
ley?" '"Where's the hamper?" "What
have you been drinking?" and Shelley
walked away unmolested. Junior.
Salt as a Remedy.
Common salt as a remedy for "brow
ague," that distressing form of head
ache, has lately been extolled by some
physicians. Tlie idea Tn increasing the
amount of the salt used with the food
was that of augmenting the hydrochlo
ric acid in the juice of the stomach
at least considerable success is claimed
for this remedy, which, however, it is
needless to say, will not operate success
fully in all case. By the way, sinning
a little finely powdered salt up the nos
tril of the affected side has been found
to cure the pain in neuralgia of the face.
'.'The fundamental difference between
men's friendships and women's," says
a cynical man I know, "l'es in just

like the same things; two women are
friends becae they dislike the samo

The above bit of valuable philos
ophy is from the English publication
called the Idler," and there never
was a truer saying. Time tests the
merit of all things, and stamps its
approval or disapproval.
Is tt not easy to see that the enor
mous popularity of that greatest of
all remedies which lias been so prom
inently lefore the public for so many
years Warner's Safe Cure is based
upon invaluable merit? The thous
ands of men and women in all parts
of the world who are kept alive by
its use, aud the millions who find in
it a means of -preserving their health
and prolonging their lines will an
