Aid In Solvlnsi a Wreck i'roblem In
"It 13 easy enough for an engineer to
show ability in New York or In other
big towns where he ean get about all
the tools and conveniences ever devis
ed. It is when an engineer finds him
self in the wilds of a jungle or up In
the mountains, bund rot In of miles from
civilization, that his own natural In
genuity and Invention count," said a
veteran engineer to a youngster who
had been aiUuitted to the ranks of the
"Down in Surinam, Dutch Cuiana,
where tbe arrival of a Bailing schooner
causes a sensation, where a mail
steamer enters the muddy harbor once
in two weeks to tarry two hours to get
rid of Irs mail and to take on a few
passengers, tliere was once a young
American engineer who showed that
he had the proper spirit of invention to
advance him to the front ranks of the
profession. Like all the best Inven
tions, his was the simplest one. and it
was one that was widely talked about
among the profession to the credit of
To understand the story properly
you need a trilling insight into Suri
nam and its habits. Here Indians may
be seen on the streets wearing only a
breechcloth. The white population is
60 scarce that all are thrown together
as if in one large family. Englishmen,
Americans, Germans, lutchmcii and
Frenchmen all combining together and
forming clubs and society to keep
themselves from dying of sheer loue
someness. "In this primitive town there was a
man who held the splendid mpnojtoly
of owning a large scow. That, up
there, seems a remarkably small thing
to be proud of, but the value of even a
scow depends entirely upon where the
scow is and what it will cost to replace
It. This particular scow had been built
by American ship carienters sent es
pecially from the United States at
great expense. There was not another
scow In the entire harbor, and about
all of the heavy river work to be done
for the city and plantations and min
ing companies was done by this one
vessel. Its loss, therefore, would have
been not only a severe one for the own
er, who had a monopoly of the busi
ness In those days, but It would have
been little short of a national calam
ity. "One day, while the srow was an
chored in rnldstro.nn. one of. those
smashing black squalls for which the
tropics are famous broke over the riv
er, and for twenty minutes you could
not see ten feet away or henr a man
shouting at your elbow. When the
storm finally abated, the scow was not
to be seen, and It was found she had
gone down, deck load and all. To most
of us there seemed aliout as much
chance of raising the vessel as there
would be to raise an ocean steamer
sunk In the middle of the Atlantic.
"It was about this time that the
young engineer took a hand In the
problem. He asked the dimensions of
the scow and was told that it was 12
by 00 feet, and then he announced that
If the owner would provide him with
four men he would raise the scow for
a certain sum of money. The bargain
was made, though the contractor re
fused to say bow he would go about
"Now, rou mnst know that aside
from the ebb and flood tide, which al
ternate every six hours, there is also
what Is known as a spring tide. This
comes with the full of the ' loon, and it
has the effect of making a higher flood
tide than any during the month. The
opposite to the spring tide is the neap
tide, and that happens at the dark of
the moon, with the effect that at no
other tide during the month is the ebb
tide so low as It is at that time. The
difference In the height of water be
tween the ebb at neap tide and the
flood at spring tide Is considerable.
'The engineer waited until neap tide.
On that day he towed a number of logs
down the river. These he anchored
over the scow and sent men below to
fasten chains to one side of the scow,
and these he fastened to the logs on
the surface. Then he waited patiently.
As the spring tide approached he tow
ed other logs down the river until he
bad enough to make quite a raft, and
on the day of the highest tide all the
logs were tied together and fastened.
The tide rose steadily, and the more it
rose the more the raft went down un
der the strain of the pull on the chains.
At last, just as it seemed that the raft
was unequal to the occasion, it was
seen to bob up violently, and a moment
later there was a commotion In the
water, and the scow appeared. What
had happened, of course, was this: The
chains pulling upward on one side of
the scow tilted it more and more until
the deck load began to slide off, and
finally, when all the stones had slid In
to the river, the scow came up under
its own buoyancy. The remainder was
simple. The vessel was towed to the
shore, where it was hauled up on the
sand, and when the Water receded
holes bored Into the hull caused the
scow to empty. Later the holes were
plugged up again, and the old ship was
as fine as silk." New York Times.

" THREE PLUMP BABIES.
Aa Exhibition Which the Crusty- Old
Bachelor Thought Diaicnatlss.
"Disgusting," said one old bacheior
to the other.
"Isn't It':" said the other old bachelor
to the one.
Three women had come into the
istroet car at different intervals with
babies of different intervals. The llrst
baby was a lusty child with nerve test
ing lungs. The second was about a
year old. and the mother. Just a little
bit embarrassed at the bachelors'
glares, finally gained courage to take a
bottle from a grip and plug up baby's
mouth with a rubber neck. The third
baby was the newest of them all and
entered the car a mere white bundle in
the arms of a dignified matron hardly
out of short skirts.

In the haste to embark, the proud
mother lirst uufolded a cunning pair of
blue worsted booties that might fit a
grumpy old bachelor's thumb. Then,
feeling the eyes of the world upon her,
she showed baby's two fat legs, which
were as pink as her own ears. Then
the cunning sight was solemnly shut
from all eyes by a procession of gowns
all of white, laced, tucked, embroidered
and plain, the fat logs kicking vigor
ously, and baby's laces hid them from
Then the little mother sat the bundle
upright and threw a soft cloak from
the other end, disclosing a round face,
a pair of blue eyes wide open in amaze
ment and as pretty and baldheaded a
baby from end to end as ever made a
bachelor angry it his own lost oppor
tunities. Then the three mothers smil

Then they went out on the platform.

Thousands of Them Sold Yearly to
Hunters and Other.
"Pocket compasses," said a dealer in
such things, "cost from - cents to $10
each, and they are made In various
sizes, from tiny compasses half an inch
or less in diameter up to those of about
the size of a hunting case watch.
"Many compasses are carried in nick
eled hunting cases. Some of the tiny
open compasses are carried for a charm
on watch guards.
"In the cheaper pocket compasses the
needle turns on a brass bearing; in the
costlier compasses on a bearing of
agate. In cither, of course, the needle
will jxiiut north, but the compass with
the agate bearing will wear much lon
ger. A good pocket compass will last a
lifetime. A considerable part f the
cost of the more expensive pocket com
passes may be due to the material used
la them and to elaborateness of finish.
"A ten dollar compass, for instance,
might have a pearl face, and so on, but
a good compass, with an agate bear
ing, ns good a compass. In fact, as a
man needs, can be bought for ?1.50.
"Every wise sportsman carries a
compass, and compasses are carried by
various other people. There' are said
of pocket compasses of one sort and
another thousands yearly." New York

CANCER CURED BY PLASTER
Application Proves Successful on
Man Elitht j--se von Years Old.
Edward Beobe. eighty-seven years
old and a resident of Derby, Conn., for
nearly half a century, has been cured
of a cancer; The cancer lirst appeared
on his nose many years ago. A year
ago it began to increase in size and be
came painful. His condition became so
bad that physicians said his death
would ensue within a few weeks.
About a month ago. when Mr. Beebe
was believed to be dying end after
many forms of treatment had been
tried unavailing!, the plaster applica
tion was suggested and decided upon.
The plaster was applied to the nose.
Two weeks later the plaster came off
and the cancer with it, says the New
York Press. Mr. Beebe is up and about
and says the pain has gone and he
feels as well as a man of his age could.
The same treatment is being tried on
two other Derby persons afflicted with

Start Girls Right!
Many beautiful girls become invalids for life,
because at the crucial period of puberty they
pay no attention to the laws of health. Mothers
should protect their daughters' health by giv
ing them necessary information and proper
treatment. When the meases come on a girl
unawares in her inexperience she is either
frightened into convulsions, or scared Into try.
tag to check the flow. Many girls have checked
the flow and it has never started again. And
as a result they have grown pale-faced, with
-'crow-tracks" on their cheeks, and dark half
moons under their eyes. A dose of
taken every morning after a girl is twelve years
old will bring the menses on properly and keep
them regular. It will help her to develop into
attractive womanhood and equip her for the duties of wife and motherhood.
