RESCUE WORK AT SEA.

Aboard an ocean liner the other day
several officers were talking about he

man one or the large iireooais mat
swing from davits sixty feet above the
sea. It was agreed that n boat enn be
lowered with its crew and get away
from the ship in two minutes in any
thing like decent weather.
An Instance was related where a
man had fallen from the liner while
she was speeding 1 1 knots. The alarm
was sounded, a boat lowered nnd the
swimmer rescued after a considerable
row back oer the course to where he
was floundering about. The crew had
the rescued individual back to the ship

cnteen minutes, which is regarded a
most creditable performance. There
was no ice on the rope falls to hamper
the work and everything worked
smoothly or the boat would have been
much longer on its mission.

The True American Virtue.
The thing whereby America really
towers over the old country is the
thing which Jefferson reared and
Washington defended. The solid good
of America Is that when all is said
and done she is a republic, a public
thing nnd a people representing itself.
There are men rich enough nnd stroug
enough, almost, to starve America, but
there are no men strong enough to
silence America. No oligarchy acts as
an entirely false Interpreter between
Americans and the world. America
and the Americans may be right or
wrong. But England may actually be
wrong while Englishmen are right.
We have said, then, that the true Amer
ican virtue is this candid and complete
democracy, the fact that the truth j
may be told even if it is not believed.

with a door between the chambers

lined with rubber. To them run air
pipes and valves from a compressor

that the patient lies outside the main '
chamber with bis head within it. Bub-1
