The germs of ia grippe are the smallest mic

of the most virulent character.
La Grippe is in the air. You don't have to be
exposed, as in other contagious diseases. The
germs of la grippe are everywhere at present.
In one week the wave of infection crosses a
continent. A nation is infected as quick as
one city. You cannot escape Ia grippe by iso
lation. You breathe in bacteria in every breath.

THEY HAVE VANY VERY SERIOUS DU
TIES TO PERFORM.
Ersides a Thoroneh Nautical Training tlie
Officer Who Navigates a, Man-of-war
31 tut He Fcssersed of a Tut Fond of
Technical Scientific Knowledge.
It is tloibtful if any oflico in the
navy, uicla from an absolute command,
involves so vast a responsibility as that
of navigator of a man-of-war. The du
ties cf this important etation in former
years fell to officers of the rank of mas
ter, but with the abolition of that
grade its affairs devolved upon fho
lieutenants lioldhiK the highest num
bers on the list. Upon the navigator if
a warship depends not only the task of
t-buping the vessel's course for any
point across the seas to which her des
tinies may direct her, but also the re
sponsibility of piloting her in and out
of harbor :uid of selecting a ife anchor
age fi.r her in every port visited during
the ptiiod of her crui.se. Hence, it fol
low? that, combined with a thorough
nautical trttiiiin;;, thu competent navi-f:;it-r
mu!-t le ii-sesscd of a va.-t funil
f geographical, meteorological and hy
druraphicul knowledge. While at Sea,
h" mu.-t kuow the vessel 8 position to u
degree, which necessitates his taking
frequent observations of thu celestial
luxlit's and making solutions of intricate
X'robJenis in geometry and trigonometry,
such as constantly ariso through devia
tions, brought about by innumerable
canses, frciu her given course.
Unquestionably tho most important
element in navigation, because of its
infallibility under ordinary conditions,
in determining the latitude, longitude
and error in the ship's compass, is what
is known in maritime phraseology as
"nautical astronomy." With the aid of
a sextant or quadrant for measuring the
altitude of the heavenly bodies above
tho horizon or their distmce from each
other, a timepiece to mark tho instant
of an observation, a chronometer to
show the time at )he first meridian, a
nautical almanac and an azimuth com
pass, the navigator can readily deter
mine his position with the utmost ex
actitude. Thu avrrngo voyago is more or less
characterized by erroneous estimates in
distances sailvd, in varying currents,
careless fcteoring, deviation in the com
pass and numerous other obstacles, and
upon the navigator rests tho responsi
bility of adjusting such errors. In long
passages across tho open sea tho navi
gator is governed by a rather complex
combination cf motives, which may be
snmmed up as follows: To cover tho re
quired distance in the ehortest space of
time with tile smallest expenditure of
fuel and the least wear and tear of tho
vessel that is possible.
With these obj cts in view the navi
gator must prior to sailing superintend
personally tho stowing of the hold, the
arrangement cf ballast, watei, provi
sions, scores, etc., and tho inspection
and adjustment of the motive appliances
of tho chip, all of which features, sever
ally and collectively, greatly affect her
sjieed and seaworthiness.
If his vessel possesses the facilities
for making sail, lie must while at sea
exercise the keenest judgment and fore
sight as to utilizing the . same, for sail
used to good advantage is a great saver
of coal, while otherwise, if used indis
criminately, it may entail much loss of
time. The expert navigator draws the
line with exceeding fineness between a
high fair wind and a gale, making the
most of the former as long as his vessel
is not jeopardized, heaving her to at
just tho proper period and getting under
way again at thu first sign of modi ration
iu tho weather. Tho commander of n
warship reposes the utmost confidence
in a skilled and careful navigator and
rarely interferes with his plans. Anoth
er of the numerous details coming under
the navigator's supervision js tho keep
ing of the ship's log. This is commenced
by him at tho time tho vessel is placed
in commission, and its pages record tne
events of each succeeding day. There is
absolutely nothing which transpires of
ficially on board of a man-of-war that
is not written in tho log, and each day
the navigator must carry it to the com
manding officer for his inspection. At
the expiration of every six months the
ship's log must be closed and forwarded
to the navy department at Washington,
where it is placed among the records.
The navigator is provided with a
large and varied assortment of instru
ments and appliances designed to facili
tate his work. While in port he is often
detailed to make surveys of portions of
the const lino which may bo defective
upon the charts or to determine the ex
act location of rocks or shoals which
hitherto have not been marked with
The navigator has charge cf all the
various weather indicators of the vessel
and must render fjuarterly reports of
all meteorological observations. These
are taken at regular intervals by the
quartermaster ot the watch and fully
entered v pon the hip's log. The navi
gator must rcgulaily inspect the steer
ing gear, compasses, anchors and cbaiu
cables of the ship and daily report their
condition to the commanding officer.
He must also keep a separate l:ook in
which are recorded all calculations re
lating to the navigation cf the vessel
and in which no erasures are permitted
to 1 made. At the expiration of the
cruise this book is forwarded to the
bureau of navigation.
The duties t f a navigating officer are
more than sufficient to fully occupy his
time, but. notwithstanding this fact,
he frequently stands his watch at sea.
While in port he is ex ofiicio the execu
tive officer during the latter's absence
from the vessel.

INSECT HEAVY DRINKERS.
Batterfil4J it For Hoar Socking Mora
Moisture Than eeded.
Ey nivalis of a large number of oh
servations Jir. J. W. Tntt is able to
confirm what has been stated by other
observers that certain butterflies and
moths are very much addicted to drink
In a paper published in the "proceed
ings" cf the South London Entomolog
ical and Natural History society Mr.
Tutt says thero can be no doubt that
butterflies drink more thai is required
by then tissues under anv possible con
ditions. He has known Polvommatus
damou to sit for more than an hour mo
tionless except for tho slight movement
of tucking up and discharging the
moisture almost continuously.
What this internal bath may really
mean cannot bo surmised. Another im
portant factor as to this drinking habit
is a strange one, the "thirsty souls,"
as far as his observation goes, being ul
most entirely males. Possibly if exact
eibser vat ions could be made it might be
found that females iu small numbers
alno visit puddles, pools and streams
for driiikiug purposes, but as far as Mr.
Tutt has been able to discover it is tut
males alone who indulge ii: these copi
ous linatlous, wlnle tuo lemales are
aw:-y laying eggs. Moths and butter
Hies ot botli sexes visit sugar, overripe
fruit and similar dainties, but they do
so for food. Tho males alone seem to be
attracted by pure water, and Mr. Tutt
suggests that, thtir extra activity hav
ing originally given them greater need
in this direction, a habit which was at
first i necessity has become so pleasur
able that excessive drinking has literal
ly becom'j a vice.
MUSIC FROM HEAVEN.
Charming fierman Metliml of Summoning
Yvhilo religious music will doubtless
live as long as religion itself thero is
one branch of it if musio it can be
called which is luckily becoming ob
solete. I refer to bells and chimes. I
shall never forget tho look of thstress
with which u famous organist once said
to me that whenever he beard a set of
chimes he wished he could put his ears
in his pocket.
In these days of $1 nickel watches
bells are no longer needed to inform
people when the service begins. They
are, moreover, a decided nuisance, and
otten a dangerous one, for they have
killed many invalids whose life depend
ed upon a few hours' sleep, which the
bells murdered. In New York bell ring
ing has been frequently stopped on ac
count of complaints to thu board of
If it seems desirable to have a means
of summoning worshipers to church,
why not adopt the delightful old custom
that is still observed iu same south Cier
mnn villages and in the city of Stutt
gart? There four trombone players as
cend a church tower three times a day
and play a t-olemn chorale.
In all my musical experience I have
never heard anything more thiilling
than those majestic harmonies iu the
air, which seemed to come straight
from heaven. If our churches would
adopt this custom and .these celestial
sounds became associated with religious
experiences, they might arouse the dor
mant devotion of many a one who other
wise would pass tho church door by.

It was in an aristocratic Hyde Park
home. The well trained English butler
had left, and the newly engaged man, a

quietly in the hall.

An Old Friend.
A gentleman, whilo traveling on a
certain railway, got out at a station
where the train stopped for a few min
utes and entered the refreshment room.
His eyes resting on a basket containing
buns, he suddenly burst into tears. Tho
sympathetic attendant gently asked
him what was tho matter and elicited
tho following touching explanation:
"Pray excuse my emotion. Two years
ago I was traveling on this lino on my
honeymoon. My wife came into this
refreshment room and scratched our ini
tials on a bun which I see iu this bas
ket. I beg you to let me have it as a
tender souvenir. Here is half a dollar."

him and would not hesitate to climb
upon his knee.
"Once when his gardener's little girl
died the great statesman went to con
dole with him. He was dreadfully up
set and while holding the poor father's
hand burst into tears, for he was very
fond of the child. He kissed the little
