VN IMPROVED LIFE RAFT FOR VES
0F.LS IN DISTRESS AT SEA.
At Present There Does Not Seem tn Be
Any Lifeboat Tliat Atmwoi-s All the Re
quirements of a Ship About to Founder.
Some Objections to Most floats.
In the many methods ailupwd to prevent
loss of life at sea the use of lifeboats and
life rafts has not yet proved very success
ful, and it is doubtful if any great ocean
steamer carries lifeboats with smnciect
capacity to float the crew and the passen
gers. If the vesst' should go down at sea
the inadequacy of these lifeboats would
be manifested in several ways. .
In a moderate heavy sea it would be a
difficult undertaking to lower them suc
cessfully from the davits, and almost an
impossibility to land the passengers in
them if once floated. The roll of the ship
and the swells of the sea would very likely
capsize them. Should they, however, es
cape destruction so far the sudden sinking
of the huge steamer would undoubtedly
draw them down into the terrible vortex
and swamp them.
If a steamer is stranded upon a deserted
coast, and attempts are made to land the
crew upon the beach, an ordinary rough
surf would make the lifeboat of steamers
an insecure craft for the purpose. Many
instances are recorded where the boats
were quickly swamped and finally washed
npon the beach with the crew half dead
For men-of-war the lifeboats are still
less adequate to meet sudden emergencies
Of this character. Ammunition must be
landed without getting wet, and the sailors
must be transported to the shore in num
bers on short notice. Previous to the bom
bardment of Fort Fisher some forty boat
loads of the fleet were dumped into the
surf while the troops were landing on the
beach near Cape Fair river.
A life raft has been invented at the Kit
tery navy yard, in Maine, which is de
signed 16 surmount nil these difficulties,
and which may be used for war vessels
and for big ocean steamers. The raft re
sembles in scueral shape that of a cata
maran, and it will lc impossible to sink or
swamp it except in the heaviest kind of
The raft consists of two lon floats made
or fobin bronze and about the size and
shape of caaw-s. These two floats are se
curely fastened toother by metallic bands
and flanges so th.it the heaviest strain in a
rough sea cannot part them. The level
plat form is constructed over the top with
seats and rowlocks attached. A mast and
sail can also be quickly used if the float is
cast away upon the sea. Inside the hollow
floats lockers are built for storing water
and provisions, and in the roughest surf
they could not get wet. On wniihipsarms
and ammunition could be stored in these
water tight compartments.
A sudden collision which might break
into the watertight floats would be the
only way to swamp these improved life
rafts. Each raft could sustain fifty per
sons m a rough sea, and in the event of be
ing cast away upon the ocean during a
storm the mast and sail could be used as a
drag, and by moans of oil, always kept in
one of the compartments, the "combing"
of the seas could be prevented from doing
any great harm.
When the storm was not raging the mast
and sail could be put up and the lifeboat
would make fair time in almost any direc
tion, carrying its load of people lightly
over the rolling waves. In landing upon a
beach the rough surf could easily lie ridden
by a raft of this nature, and the rescued
people could be safely landed upon the
The improved life raft is not perfect in
every sense of the word yet, for its weight
and cost make it impractical for many of
the ocean steamers to carry it. Their size
and shape, however, are such that they can
be stowed away without occupying much
more room than the old fashioned lifeboat,
which all the vessels are compelled by law
So light and buoyant are these metal j
rafts it is estimated that not even the I
heavy suction of the sea when a large I
steamer went down could draw them into J
the vortex with sufficient power to swamp S
them. Xo other lifeboat of any descrin- :
tion has ever been supposed to bo able to
withstand such a strain upon her floating
powers. They are thus practically inenpa
l.le of swamping, and this is one of the
greatest dangers experienced when steam
ers become total wrecks at sea. Xearly
every month some terrible calamity at sea
illustrates the need of some such floating
raft to prevent shipwrecked crews and
passengers from going to the bottom of the
The question of launching the rafts and
then of lauding the passengers on them
has lieen considerably discussed. With
both the raft and the disabled steamer
rolling heavily in the sea this would be no
mean work to undertake, but it has been
proposed to launch the float and then to
send the passengers down what is com
monly known as the "London lire escape."
The passengers would by this means be
shot down an inclined and inclosed plane
to the very deck of the raft. This work
would be performed over the stern of the
vessel, where the rolling would be les3 se
vere than elsewhere.
The use of oil for calming the seas dur
ing the transference of passengers from
the steamer to the floating raft has
also been wisely recommended as a good
method of performing the work easily and
successfully. So generally valuable is the
use of oil for this purpose that every
steamer and vessel of any importance car
ries sufficient quantities to calm the seas
tor a long time. It could probably be put
to no better use than that suggested of
quieting the waters long enough to enable
the passengers to get on board of the float
ing rafts Detroit Free Press.
A Possible' Case.
The patrolman was before his chief
for having slept on his beat on Sunday
"I am surprised, Officer Sling," said the
chief regretfully, "that this charge has
been brought against yon."
"So am 1, sir," responded the officer.
"You were never guilty of such an of
fense until you took your present beat."
"Have you any excuse to offer?"
"Yen, sir," said the officer confidently,
"there's two churches in every square of
my beat, and I cau't get out of hearing of
the sermons, sir." Detroit Free Press.

In the first act, the actor is heard talking
from l.-U bed. Then lie comes out attired
simply in u dressing gown and, attended '
by his valet, passesintoa bathroom. When
the portieres are drawn aside to admit of
his entrance a substantial bathtub is seen
by the audience, ir. Goodwin, the first
and second nights, insisted on having this
tub filled with warm water, into which he
plunged, his splashing about being dis
tinctly heard by the fashionable people
occupying the auditorium.
It made a hit.
Profesiuonals warmly commended Good

that hesitated not at the sacrifice of
personal comfort, and the audience
shivered with surprise.
Now, however, things are somewhat
different. The splashing noise is pro

The change was brought about in this
way: The third night the property man,
to save time, filled the tub with water an
hour earlier than usual. Dj" the time Mr.

he did take his plunge, instead of saying,
as customary, "Oh, this is immense!" he

IU-vereuco for the Beard.
Former reverence for the beard is well
illustrated by the story told of Sir Thomas
More, who was beheaded for denying the
supremacy of Henry VIII. His usual
cheerfulness did not forsake him even on
the scaffold. "Help me up," he said to
one standing by; "for my coming down let
me shift for myself." As he laid his head
on the block lie begged the executioner to
wait a moment while he carefully placed
his beard out of the reach of the ax, for, he
said, "It hath not committed treason,"
which reminds one of the story of Simon
Lord Lovat, who, the day before his execu
tion on Tower hill, bade the operator who
shaved him be cautious not to cut his
throat, as such an accident would cause
disappointment to the gaping crowd on the
morrow. English Illustrated Magazine.
