Many are the dangers which the sub

he procerded cIousely, sckine
ery inch of the 'tween decks compart
ment. He had gone perhaps thirty feet
when he was suddenly brought to a
standstill. He had literally got to the
end of his rope. His breath was coin
ing in gasps, for nearly one minute of
th2 few he might expect te live had al
As he stood there, caught like a rat
in a trap, he felt that life at the most
could last but one or two minutes.
Somewhere in the hold with him was
a fellow being who might save him,
but how reach him?
He could not move a hand or foot tc
save himself. There could be no heli:
from the surface, because up there
th~ey kaew nothing of his horrible pre
dieamnent, and he Was powerless to no
He stood thus for perhaps ten see
onds, every one of which was an eter
nity.- Then his eyes chanced to fall
upon an object on the deck stretched
out in an obsc-ure corner. From where
he stood it lookd~ !!ke the legr of a man.
Eagerly stra iin forward, Moran
threw himself on his face and reached
for the object. Had he had two inches
less of rope he could not have done it,
but as it was he grasped the heel of
his companion's iron soled boot and
gave a mighty tug.
The other diver happened to be lying
on his side doing a piece of work hE
could get at in no other way. He has
tily scrambled over to Mor-an and, plac
ing his Le.met aanst the other's,
asked what the trouble was. By thus
placing their copper- helmets together
divers are able to talk freely with each
othcr in any de-pth. of water.
Moran told his friend that his hose
was jammed by the batch and that he
was gettin~g no0 air whatever. The oth
cr's comnuunication with the surface
was of course~ unim paired, and he Im
med-ia~t x-y .;no d to have the hatch
remoavedl. i k the-n drew his knife and
stoodl ready to cut Moran's life line and
air hos' in case the hatch w-as not re
muoved quick enough to afford relief.
It was a moment of dramatic horror.
Moran toid his comp~aion that he
could perhaps live two more minutes
on the air already in his helmet. The
two agreed that they would waft one
minute for the removal of the hatch.
If at the end of that time relief did not
come, the other diver was to sever Mo
ran's lfe line and hose and start with
him to the surf'ace.
It was a slender chance for Moran,
- - but it was the only one he had. With~
the cutting of the air hose the water
would flood the helmet. There wasa
bare chance, however, that he wou ldl
not be so badly drowned and asphyxi
ated but that he oud be rneusitted
as the secoia sped Moran stood and
watched thc superabundance of air
bubbling from the top of his friend's
helmet. Every one of those bubbles
re!pre-sented a draft of good oxygen, for
the need of which his life was fast
ebb!ig. As the minute waned his
knees trembled, his breath came pain
fully and in his ears a thousand bells
The moment came at last. Feeling
that it was folly to hang on a second
longer, Moran told his companion to
cut, and in the same instant a flood of
fresh sweet air filled his helmet. The
hatch had been removed in tho very
nick of time.
HA V.VTS GIRL
f Child In the City
Naples at the present time is In a
high state of excitement concerning a
girl named Dmilia Dinacci, who has re
cently become subject to extraordinary
hallucinations. She declares that wher
ever she goes she is accompanied by
the spirit of her deceased aunt, who
only leaves her when her niece is talk
ing to strangers, though the presence
of any member of the family makes no
difference to the aunt at all.
Emilia Dinacci says her aunt will
sometimes appear sitting, sometimes
standing, clothed now In dark robes
and now in many colored garments.
She talks freely with the niece, and
her voice is clear, though harsh.
Emilia can never get quite close to
the aunt. Once she tried, and the aunt
boxed her ear, the sound of the blow
being distinctly heard by the mother,
who was present.
On one occasion the aunt asked the
niece if she was hungry, and, Emilia
replying in the affirmative, a tray ap
peared bearing a chicken, of which
Emilia ate with perfect satisfaction.

Terrible Fate of a young Man
Who Wa-r Captured by a
Band of Indianx.
In the days when the diligence, or
stagecoach, started from Paso del Nor
te to go to Chihuahua there were three
points of great danger along the trail,
one of which was Candelleria, or the
Candle mountain pass, says Colonel
Jack Crawford. the one time noted
scout. Here lurked a band of Indians
under Victoria aid Nana, most notori
ous of the Masseellerro and Apa: .e In
dians. These chiefs were reckoin;d the
most bloodthirsty and cruel of an. that
infested the border at that time.
One night as we neared the pass on
the way to Chihuahua it w:is piteb
dark. I rode in advance of tn( coach.
The only passenger was a twemx.y-two
year-old young man named Pu;:1: from
St. Louis. The diligence was drawn by
old fashioned mule teams. A typical
cocherro, or driver. named 1'0 o Au
gustan hell the lines. Ie was a genu
ine Castilian. Beside Ped:o ro .e the
.lamibeau boy, with his pipe stie!:s and
Soon I saw signs of Indians and rode
back to warn the driver.
Before I reached the diligence a rifle
cracked, and one of the lead mules fell
dead. The filambeau boy lighted his
resin torch to see what was the matter.
The mules, all afright, became tnn
gled in the harness. We all were at
sea as to where the deadly bullet came
Then came from directly before us a
screech of infernal yells, often read
about, but rarely heard. We knew the
Indians, while not advancing, were
going to wait to see which way we
"Put out the flame," I called quickly
to the boy. "Quit your team and get
your rifle, Pedro," I exclaimed to the
driver, and I ordered Pugh, the only
passenger, to hide in the shadows be
hind the rocks. It was useless to try
to go farther, as the Indians bad set an
ambuscade for us.
"Pedro," I said, "we'll stand them
off. We can kill them. It's our only
chance." I hid my horse in the shad
ows, told Pedro to get a mule, ordered
the boy to get another and told Pugh
to do likewise. But poor Pugh became
dazed with fright, and Insteadp 4%.

Pugh run away in the dark, and the
first we knew of his capture was when
we heard his screams rising above
those of the demons who caught him.
We three who remained fell back to
ward Los Toncas, hearing as we re
treated the unearthly, demoniacal yells
of the Apaches and the heartbreaking
cries of the young man. Attempt at
rescue was useless. We never could
have helped the poor boy. We could
hear his screams as they tortured, mu

How Herman did hate to go! He was
setting up a little wate wheel in the
ditch, and it was the greatest trial to
"Ilermie!" Suddenly Herinle remem
bered what father had said to him.
"Take good care of your mother, Her
man, for she is sick and nervous, and
any excitement may upset her."
Ile dropped the windmill and ran to
the porch, where mother was calling.
"Hermie," said mother in a worried
tone, "look off there toward the rail
road track. Do you see that smoke?
That ought not to be there."
Herman looked. "It's only a little
grass, mother, burning along the track.
That's all right," he urged, eager to get
back to the water wheel.
"Oh, but, Herinie, please go down
and see that there isn't anything
wrong." begged mother. ".And, Hermie,
don't get hurt," she added in fresh ter
"All ri;ht, mother; I'll see to it," he
answered cherrily and started off to
ward the track.
First he ran to please his mother;
then lie walked; then as the flames
came into sight lie began to run again.
What was it? No grass fire along the
track could look like that. The long
wooden bridge was burning. and in five
minutes the train would be due.
"What shall I do'" panted poor Her
mie as he hurried up the steep railroad
gi'ade. "I must wave a red flag."
But he had nothing with which to
flag the train. For a moment he stood;
then suddenly he pulled off his red
blouse and waved it vigorously at the
speck which approached in the dis
The engineer caught sight of the
dancing little figure that waved the red
blouse so frantically and brought the
train to a standstill.
The train men came clambering down
to fight the fire. The passengers fol
lowed after, and the very first to come
out of the car was Hermie's father.
"Oh, what would have happened if I
had not come quickly when mamma
called me?" said Herman, with a shud

A hen came off ie nest with one
chicken. She was a very
and did not waste too much time on
that one. When she thought it was old
enough to look after itself she went to
laying again. The chicken would go
with her to the nest, and when the
time for sitting on the eggs came the
patient little creature assisted in that
process too. When the brood was
hatched she followed with It, and after
a few weeks of this life the practical
mother turned the family over to the
elder sister nd again went about what
she considered her chief business in
life-to lay eggs.
It was a novel sight to see the half
grown chicken taking care of the
brood. She did her best to imitate the
mother, scratching and trying to cluck,
but making a strange noise. The little
chickens followed her contentedly and
seemed to forget all about the mother.
An Astonishing Boy.
It is not a common thing for a boy's
mind to be fixed with any remarkable
degree of intensity upon the duty of a
prompt arrival at school, but there are
exceptions to all rules, and little Ray
mond Scott is one of these exceptions.
HIls story appears in the Philadelphia
Inquirer as follows:
Seven-year-old Raymond Scott of
317 Warren avenue, Camden, had a
remarkable escape from a locomotive
yesterday m'orning at Haddon avenue
station as he was on his way to school.
The boy ran across the tracks directly
in front of an Atlantic City express.
The engine's pilot struck him, and he
rolled over and over for thIrty feet.
WXhcn picked up, the train crew was
astounded when Raymond said:
"Where are my books? Hlurry up, or
I'll be late."
Getting an Egg In China.
An English traveler who has visited
every nation in the world Is authority
for the statement that one~ food is uni
versal throughout all countries, says
the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune.
"There is not a part of the world," he
says, "where you cannot get an egg."
While in western China, however, he
at first had some difficulty in getting
even eggs. The nai ;es could not un
derstand him and refused to recognize
the pictures he drew as pictures of
eggs. "The way I got out of the diffi
culty," he adds, "was that I squatted
down on my haunches, flapped my
wings and cock-a-doodle-dooed until
the entire nation grasped what I want
ed, and I was simply deluged with
hundreds of eggs."
Where Chops Come From.
Sadie was eleven and Alice was sev
en. At lunch Alice said:
"I wonder what part of an animal a
chop is. Is i( a leg?"
"Of course not," answered Sadie.
"It's the jawbone. Haven't you ever
heard of animals licking their chops?"
A Child's Bargain.
Love me. mother, and I'll be good
Good as any small child should;
Let your kiss fall on my brow,
And then I'll be good somehow.
"Love me. mother." that's my song,
For 'tis but for love I long;
Let me rest my cheek 'gainst thine;
Love me, mother, mother mine.
Love me as the day is long;
'Twill be my guard against all wrong,
And when last I close mine eyes
'Twill lead me, mother, through the skies.
