Captain McKay and Hltt Passenger.
The fact is that the excellent captain
or the Uiabria, Captain McKay, was a
little more open with his passengers than
was quite prudent. With the laudable
desire of paring them any unnecessary
anxiety, he informed them plainly of the
cause of tl.e stoppage of their course and
genially a-wured them of their perfect
safety. So far, so good. The passengers
had a right to ask that much, and it was
but sensib e to let them know the truth
and not iir agine worse things for them
selves., B it what the passengers had no
tight to as for was information as to
the course that the captain was going to
pnrsr.e, and Captain McKay made a
mistake in not snubbing the first gentle
man who rnestioned him on the subject
"Why don't you send up rockets?'' one
of the past enters is said to hare rlain-
tirely demanded. "There will be time
enough for rockets when a vessel comes
near enou,,a 10 see mem, answerea ine
captain evasively, but courteously.
The pol teness was fatal. After the
Implied admission that rockets and other
shins were necessary to their Katv.iHoT
j the passengers had a terriffic hold upon
the nnluc'iy commander of the ship.
jHad he oaly answered, as he would
have been perfectly justified in doing
and as a great many other captains
j wonld certainly hove done, '-What busi
ness is mit or yours; ne might have
made himself a lift -n unpopular, but b
would hav-i saved himself from much

A. Duffy had i.n i::civ:Ti;.- esperien-.
with bnrgl.iis ;;t his house rarly Monday
morning. He is bnt recently marrici
and among his wedding presents was a
music box To this happy circumstance
he attributes the fact that the burglars
did not succeed in carrying off every
thing in his home.
One of the burglars in rummaging
through his drawing room stumbled
across the package of stored music, and
thinking probably that it contained jew
elry or silverware attempted to open it
In doing sc he set the music machine in
motion, ai d presently Mr. Meany was
roused froii his slumbers by the touch
ing strains of "Auld Lang Syne." Mr.
Meany got his gun and started for the
burglars, a ad they started for a window.
He arrived at the drawing room doorway
just in rime to see two burglars leaping
from the window. He fired, but the
robbers coatinued their flight. One of
them stumbled in getting over the front
fence, and Mr. Meany is convinced that
he shot him, as be found several splashes
of Hood on the ground and sidewalk.

The hollow interior that gave the light
