AFTER HAVING ATTENDED A CHINESE
The Voyage Rendered Interesting by th.
Presence of a Storm, a Practical Joker
and a School of Whale, The Sturgeon's
(Copyright, 1990, by Edgar W. Nye.
At Marysville, CaL, I attended the
Chinese theatre. I did not enjoy it very
much. The building was quite plain on
the inside, the Beats having been volup
tuously fashioned from fence boards.
The play itself I judged was one of love
and crime. Especially crime. Three
actors and two actresses, all of the same
sex, however, took part in the play. The
Chinese language is very difficult for me
to understand unless I pay very close at
tention. Once I was obliged to tell the
comedian to speak a little louder.
IN THE CHIXESE TUEATRE.
There are several thousand characters
In the Chinese. They have almost every
kind of character except what is known
as the moral character. The Chinese
were on the eve of a big celebration in
honor of the erection of the Joss house.
They invited iue to participate, but I told
them that I had never made a profession
of religion and I did not think it would
be proper. So they excused me.
We took the sleeper on the Central Pa
cific railroad for San Francisco, and were
just in time to catch the 6teamer State of
California for Portland. Out through
the Gold-en Gate on a glorious morniug
at 10 o'clock we steamed softly away, as
the poet says. Oakland, and Nob Hill,
and Goat Island, and Telegraph Hill, and
Lone Mountain, anil the Cliff House, and
Sutro Heights, one by one faded away.
The croupy baying of the sea lions grew
more indistinct, the asthmatic engine
quickened its stroke, and we were abroad
on the heaving chest of the Pacific.
Some got out their glasses, and others
their summer literature, and some their
lunches, but most every one went below
to divest himself of what is known as the
California flea. The California flea does
not differ from the American Ilea, except
that he is a trifle darker on the stomach,
and is also the hopeless victim of insom
nia. His motto is: "We never sleep,
nor allow anybody else to do so." Also,
"We do not die in the bouse."
This little insect is what might be
termed a tuft hunter. He seeks out the
great and the eminent of all ages and all
climes, ne associates with his superiors
with as little embarrassment as a mem
ber of the legislature would. He also has
a way of attracting attention to himself
which must arouse the envy and admira
tion of Denis Kearney.
Large flocks of sea gulls, poised on
graceful wing, followed us far out to sea.
The gull is not a very pretty bird, nei
ther is he a good songster. He flies with
much ease and grace, but his song re
minds me of the remark made by an
aged horse I once owned, who had formed
the unfortunate habit of cribbing. The
gull is a good roadster, but his voice
needs a little machine oil on the second
joint. He pursues a ship on tireless
wing for days at a time, taking anything
that may be offered by kind friends, al
ways giving a grateful creak in return.
His ambitions are not praiseworthy, how
ever, and his aspirations are offal.
On the way out of the bay I saw our
old friend the practical joker. He had
been with us several days on the cars
and at hotels. He was getting some
more jokes ready for the voyage. God
did not see fit to shower any brains on
him, but after completing the flea and
pronouncing him good . the practical
joker was produced from the shavings
and debris left over on the completion of
He began life by jerking the chair out
from beneath his old blind grandmother
and laughing immoderately when she
broke her neck. He then advanced rap-
laiy in lielltstiness, doing this same trick
for the pastor whilst the latter temnora
rily stood up at table in order more deft
ly to stab a hot, saleratU8 biscuit. The
boy now began to try more difficult jobs
and soon coal oiled a St. Bernard dotr,
Then, lighting him, he turned him loose
in a primary school for the blind, where
he succeeded in burning up quite a num
oer or. cunuren, wuiisi nis own eyes
twinkled with merriment.
Oh, he just bubbled over wit'a this
roguish spirit of gentle fun.
Well, he was on board. I did not like
him very much, for he had stuffed my
pipestem full of paper once, and, though
I got it out in hall the time it took him
to put it in, I have no patience with
large, full grown man with whiskers
who has nothing better to do than to
study out practical jokes which would
disgrace a reform school and shock a
- On the second day, while he was stim
ulating himself, preparatory to having a
thought as he was led to believe, a giant
billow struck us abaft the scuppers on
the lee bow. The ship keeled over till
the salt spray rolled down the smoke
stack, and then seemed to hesitate a full
minute ere Bhe righted herself before
the public, and then went over as far on
the other side. I had nevev taken any
Interest in this practical joker, and had
no curiosity whatever about his habits of
life or diet. I did not care a cent about
what he ate, and I always believe in
people selecting such food as best agrees
with them. I do not know yet how he
got it into his head that I felt any inter
est in his past, and yet he went on to
how me at some length his notions
about diet, furnishing a suitable style of
gesture ever and anon, which would
have commanded my sympathy if he
had been a human being.
How much better it is to leave our re- j
venge in Jthe hands of a higher power!
How much better it will be atten3edTlb
and how much time it gives us in which
to mind our own business! That young j
man, when he got to the mouth of the
Columbia, was the most untenanted and
deserted and absolutely unfurnished man
I ever saw.
He wanted to die. but I told him it
would not be right. I went in to see him
frequently. I would most always take
him some Vienna sausages and boiled
cabbage, with hot doughnuts or some
little delicacy like that, and while they
shed their gentle fragrance through lils
hot, close state room, I would speak to
him of his lost and undone condition in
low, passionate tones, meantime smoking
a rich, brown cob pipe loaded with dog
I often think yet of the hopeless look
on his face and wonder if, after all, dur
ing that terrible voyage, my gentle pres
ence socked a single ray of sunshine into
his otherwise dark and cheerless life.
It was a terrible storm. We did not
realize it fully at the time, but afterward,
while on shore, refitting and refurnish
ing ourselves, we found out that it had
been a very severe gale, and that the
Sound steamer Umatilla had suffered
considerably, and if a Sound steamer
would suffer at such a time what could
you expect of an unsound one? But we
will let that pass.
The mouth of the Columbia is one of the
most active and dangerous, if we except
that of Corporal Tanner, perhaps, that
I have ever met up with. Looking into
it on that Sabbath morning I judged the
river to be atout fourteen thousand years
of age. And yet its teeth are very good.
We could see them distinctly.
At daybreak I rose, as is my custom,
to examine the sun, and also to see the
practical joker dusting off the coating of
his stomach by means of a whisk broom,
and to our left the shaggy brow of Cape
Disappointment loomed up in the cold
gray of the early morning. The yellow
waters of the Columbia came down to
salute the deep blue of the Pacific, and
over the Bar the white breakers mingled
their spray with the threatening sky.
It is a nasty place to ride over even
when you are feeling well, but if one has
been ill and has not yet recovered, one
almost wishes that the ship would go to
the btittoui and not be too dilatory about
it, either. So the practical joker told me,
for I was not ill at all. I took my meals
frequently and ate them in his room. At
night I would, before going to bed, eat
some crackers and Swiss dice; bv his
bedside, while I read to him page after
page of "Robert Elsmere." When he reads
this I fear sometimes that he will almost
hate me. And yet I am". malicious
myself. I love everyliody. Almost.
And I try to make their lives happier, if
I can. I shed sunshine wherever I go,
We rode along with a primary school
of whales the last day. There must have
been a dozen of them. A man who knew
everything, having Iteen associated two
or three weeks with the liev. Joseph
Cook, said they v.re right whales. I
do not know how he could tell, for you
couldn't see a particle of the whale ex
cept the squirt of water which marked
his locality. But some men are so able
that at times it must give them great
He told iue all about whales and every
thing els. I did not know that whales
were rights and lefts, but it swots that
they are. Whale oil is not used in salad
dressing any more. The whale is a mam
mal. I would rather lie a right whale
than to lie president. The female whale
does not lay eggs like the fish, but pro
duces her young alive like the Piute In
dian and other brutes. She nurses her
own young, especially if help should bo
scarce, and sometimes liecomes the head
of quite a family.
The father, however, is quite migra
tory and irresponsible to a degree.
Whales live to a great age and lead a
very wet and uneventful life. They are
taken with the harpoon.
BKINQINU niM VIANDS.
The whaler, while singing, accompa
nies himself on this instrument. My an
cestors were whalers and men of un
daunted courage, so they were often
heard to say. They went into the whal
ing business at that time in the history
of the country when the pirate business
became so dull along the high seas. It
was a poor substitute, but it was the best
they could do. If they had lived a little
longer they could have gone into the
grand larceny publishing business or lob
bied at Washington against the copyright
The Columbia river Bturgeon is also a
large water fowl, frequently growing to
a great size. lie attains a weight of 600
pounds, and has a head that looks like
that of Goliath of Gath after his two
round set-to with David.
Isa'xroneof these sturgeons lying on
the dock at Kalama the other day. He
won dead, and looked like a fat man I
saw in the Paris morgue last summer,
flis head weighed 100 pounds the stur
geon's head, I mean. And there isn't a
brain into it, either. The sturgeon gives
very little thought to his future. Or his
past for that matter.
An honest resident of Oregon told me
how the sturgeons, during the high wa
ters, got into his cellar and ate sixty
bushels of his potatoes. At night they
would also come up stairs and bite the
children. They plagued him a good deal.
Often they would chase the cattle around
the yard and frighten his wife. They al
most ate him out of house and home; but
in the midst of their wild orgies in the
cellar they struck a jar of Pompadour
Yamhill butter, and death was swift and
When the Columbia river fisherman
succeeds in his day's work by catching
seven or eight of these COO pound stur
geons he puts them on a willow stringer,
and as he trudges gayly home with them
in his hand it is a gladsome sight.
The sturgeon dies hard, often refusing
to ascend the golden stair for twenty
four hours after he is removed from the
water. Although his head often weighs
over 100 pounds, he is not a deep thinker,
and it takes him a day or two to get it
through his head that he is a corpse.
Aside from the Greenback party and
Thompson's colt, he probably does more
to discourage the overworked fool killer
than anybody of whom history has in
He likes very much, also, to wrap the
drapery of a large salmon net about him
and lie down to pleasant dreams. When
he la rudely awakened he hears strange
voices. They are fishermen's voices.
They are employed in s'vearing. I heard
them doing this one d ly, down toward
Astoria, when 1 was t board the S. G.
Reed. They are general ly men who have
had very few advantages, especially of
foreign travel, or study of the profanity
of the old world, but thjy manage to get
along very well, I thought. I could hear
all they said, and I jud ed from the gen
eral drift of their conversation that this
thing was distasteful to them.
I have since learned that some of the
above facts were greatly exaggerated.

The Kstnit ol Merit
When anything stands a lest of fifty
years among a discriminating people like
Uie Americans, it is pretty good evidence
tbt there is merit somewhere. The value
of a medicine is best proved hv its con
tinned use from year to year hv the same
persons and families, as well a by a
steadily increasing nli. Few. if anv
medicines have met wit i such continued
success and popularity us has marked tin
introduction and prognss of Brandreth's
pills, which, after a tiinl of over fifty
years, are conceded to 'ie the safest and
most effectual purgative introduced to the
That this is the result of merit.and that
Brandreth's pills actually perform all that
is claimed for them, is conclusively
proved bv the fact that those who icgard
them with the greatest favor are those
who have used them the longest.
