AWARE THAT SHE WAS OVERLOADED
AND WOULD FOUNDER.
A Sign That Saved the Lives of Two of
the Crew, tor They Oeserted When They
Witnessed the Remarkable Sight Story
of a Seaman Who Followed the Rata.
Some years ago I formed one of the crew
of a ship called the Wooljammer. She was
an iron clipper, owned by a well known
London firm. We were lying in Port Lyt
telton. New Zealand, alongside the break
water, having just completed taking In a
cargo of wool, and were going to sail on
the following moruing for home. I was on
anchor watch from 10 to 11.
It was a beautiful bright moonlight
night, and I was sitting on the hencoop at
the break of the poop buried in thought,
when I was roused from my reverie by
hearing the clocks in the town striking
the hour. I went forward to call the man
who was to relieve me, but before I reached
the forecastle I determined tc do his watch
for him, as I was not a bit sleepy and felt
loth to turn Into a stuffy berth. So I made
up my mind to do him a good turn and en
joy another hour of quiet contemplation.
The harbor looked charming in the
moonlight, and the long rangeof hills that
divides Lyttelton from Christ church stood
out in somber magnificence against the
starlit sky. Across the bay I could hear
the faint clanking of the windlass pants of
some little coasting craft that was Retting
under weigh. I retnrned to my seat on
the hencoop and began once more to bnild
As I gazed along the deck of our mag
nificent ship, now lying so peacefully at
her moorings, I thought how probably in
a month's time this huge monster would
be tossed about as a mere plaything in the
mighty sea off Cape Horn. One of the
stevedores told us that she was carrying
eleven more bales of wool this passage
than on her first voyage five years before;
he also said that he believed that, if they
bad tried to screw another bale in, it
would have burst her sides out. It was
not altogether pleasant to think that a
ship which was loaded to such an extent
would have to battle with a Cape Horn
sea, as any heavy gale might cause her to
strain and start a bolt.
Just then I heard the short, sharp squeak
of a rat, and looking down I saw several
running along the main deck. They were
coming out of the hold by the after hatch,
which was off. To my surprise I saw that
they were going ashore, using the breast
hawser as a gangway between the ship
and the quay, and in a few moments I
found that they were not coming in twos
or threes, but by dozens. They crowded
in a thick line from the hatchway, and all
followed the original leaders to the shore,
until it was evident thnt not one would be
left behind. I was not particularly super
stitious, but I had the dread all sailors
have of a ship that the rats leave, and I
felt it to be a bad omen.
I called a couple of hands to come and
see the sight. For a good half hour we
watched these creatures disembarking,
then one of the men remarked, as he
looked at the swarming jetty:
"Pickle me pink if I am going to sail in
this hooker now, an them rats have gone
We went forward and woke the rest oi
the men np in order that they might see
"Now," said a seaman named fck,
"who's going ashore and who ain't? Cns,
here's off," at the same time hastily mak
ing up a bundle of clothes.
"Here's another," said I, at the same
time packing a few necessaries. The rest
f the men did not seem to like the idea of
having to leave their clothes )ebind, and
determined to remain by her and chance
"Well, so Ion', chaps; if you will be
drowned, why, you must," and Dick and I
departed for the shore.
Ou getting into the town we had to take
great care to avoid the police, as our
bundles would have attracted attention at
that time of night, and bad we been run
in we should have been Bent aboard the
first thing in the morning. By avoiding
the principal streets we were enabled to
get into the range of bills, where we found
a cozy little hollow, in which we secreted
When daylight came we found that we
bad a good view of the harbor, and at an
early hour we saw a tug come alongside
our ship, and by 10 o'clock she was towing
down towatd the Heads. As soon as she
was well out to sea we returned to Lyttel
ton, and as there was a dearth of seamen
we had no difiiculty in getting another
ship. Two days afterward we were towed
out, homeward bound.
We made a good paasage until we ap
proached the latitude of the Horn, when
the breezes began to get stronger and
heavy swellsshowed that gales were about.
It was frightfully cold and we spent most
of our time in making sword mats for
chafing gear. This is the usual work given
to sailors when rounding the Horn, as it
helps to keep up the circulation. We ex
pected if the breezes held good to be off the
Horn on the following night, but during
the afternoon the glass began to fall and
it came on to blow f rem the southwest.
It blew strong all that night, and by day
light we were running before a heavy gale
under close reefed topsails. I was thank
ful that I was not aboard my old ship in
this gale, as I felt convinced that with all
the extra bales of wool which had been
screwed into her she could not stand much
of a dressing. About 2 o'clock on that
afternoon a sail was reported on our
weather bow. We overhauled her hand
aver fist. We could see her rise on the top
of a huge billow aud plunge into the hol
low, writhing like a living creature in
agony, the water pouring from her scup
ners aud ports eacli time she rose on a sea.
The captain and mate were looking at
her through their glasses. "Hello," saia
the skipper, "she's in distress. She's got
her ensiim unside down. I don't see how
ft'c fun hfn her with this sea running.
There, she's going to signal. Up goes her
numUr." With some difficulty we made
it out, and I was horrified to find that it
was my old vessel, the Wooljammer.
She signaled to us. "Am leaking; can
von stand bvf" We made an attempt to
bring our vessel up in the wind, but in bo
aomg nearly got bwshiiku. e uinuo
.nai nrromntH to cret near, but it wai
,,tti-lr imrmssible to launch a boat, and at
last we reluctantly had to abandon her to
her fate. As the gathering gloom of night
came on she faded from our view, and with
a sickly feeling at my heart I knew that
all my old shipmates were doomed before
morning to a watery grave.

near the town of East Haddam lived "Boss

took Its name of Leesville. Boss Lee was
building a new house, and as panes of glass
with a "bullseye" were thought to be or

thought himself quite a philosopher, ob

their danger in acting possibly as burning

He gave a case in point where some shav
ings left on a south window sill of a new
house took fire from this cause while the
workmen were away at dinner, and they
returned just in season to save the house.
"Now," concluded the old man impres

nothing could have saved it." Hartford
A Superstition About Cats.
The ancient Greeks thought that all
creatures except cats had souls, and that
that animal lost its soul through a bar
gain made between a bridge architect and
the devil. The architect had besought the
devil to get his help in constructing an ex
ceedingly dangerous bridge structure, and
bis satanic majesty only consented to lend
aid on condition that the first creature to
cross it should lose its soul.
This was agreed upon, the bridge finished
in due time and the devil sent to the oppo
site side to await his prey. The shrewd
architect took good care to send a cat over
before any human being was allowed to
cross. On learning of the bargain the cat
recrossed the bridge and scratched the
architect's eyes out. St. Louis Republic
