Ono Kan Who Will 'Never Forget the Sa-
i "I suppose, that nil of us who felt the
living, frenzied force of that awful on
shore hurricane will dream about it
occasionally as long as we live," said
an ex-bluejacket of tho United States
navy now living in Washington, who
was among tho Vaudalia ship's com
pany at tho timo of tho great naval dis
aster iu Apia harbor, i-amoa, iu rovert
iutf to that experience. "For threo or
four years after I got out of that mess
all safe and sound tho memory of it
used to gi t tangled up in my head when
i was asieep, and i would wai;o in a
tremble and ho unahlo to sleep for the
remainder of tho night. But time has
softened tho craggier edges of tho ro-
mcnibranco of that horrifvinc black
wind, and onro iu a spell nowadays I
forget all about it for two or three days
ar, it time.
"There was ono man in my mess on
tho Vaudalia who was never auito riirht
after wo went on tho reef. I was ship
; mate with him for two years afterward,
and his occasional wilduess was plain
j to all hands, and men who've been ship
; mates with him since for he's still in
tho outfit tell mo that ho's just as bad
ly haunted by tho memory of tho disas
ter as ho was when last I saw him.
ibis man was a shipwright, and his
tiaino was lurley. Before wo had that
bad blow Turley was as cheerful and as
ehipptr a man around decks as I ever
swapped yarns with, but when ho got
well ot ins broken arms down iu Apia
ho was a changed man. I never saw
j him crack a grin after tho blow, and
j from a st-ut, husky fellow ho became
i thin and haggard looking. Ho recovered
j all right physically from tho thing, you

two years after wo were sent rip to duty

"There is no true woman hut will re
pay her husband over and over again
for kind, thoughtful treatment. He is
ready to call her childish, and she may
seem so to him ; but one thing is sure
a woman never forgets.
"All little deeds of love or tbonght
fulness sown by his hand yield a certain
and abundant harvest. She may lovo
her homo better than any other spot on
earth, yet sho sometimes gets so weary
of tho daily routine of never ending
duties that fall to her lot that she can
not help au occasional feeling of envy
for thoso who have more time for recre
ation, for going abroad, for all the little
things dear to tho heart of every woman,
but which tho stern hand of duty most
effectually debars her from enjoying.
Still, for all that, sho would not for the
whole world exchange places, even if
sho could, with any other woman, leav
ing homo and John dear old John as
the prico of her freedom from care. J
"If your wife has been a faithful and I
truo wife to you, tell her so. Do not j
think it lowers your manliness any to !
let her know that sho still has a place j
iu your affections. Sho has toiled early ;
and lato for you and your children, i
through sickness aud health, and self i
denial has grown to bo her motto. It ;
takes but littlo from her loved ones to i
make her happy, so do not begrudge her 1
a word of praise now aud theu as her '
just reward, aud of far more value to
her starving heart than gold. There are
somo things which money cau never
buy, and wounds which it cannot heal, !
but lovo levels all obstacles, overcomes I
all difficulties and immeasurably sweet

Instance! Io Maine of a Custom That Pre
vailed Iu England a Century Ago.
A Bancor lawyer attending court in
tho ancient town of Wiseasset, Mo.,
went rummaging recently in tbe colonial
court records of the place and iu the
course of bis reading ran across the
official registration of a "smock mar
riage." Not knowing what sort of mar
riage that was be looked further and
(tot considerable light upon a custom
that prevailed in England a century or
two ago and also to somo extent in tho
Smock marriages wero weddings
where the bride appeared dressed iu a
white sheet or chemise. Tho reason of
sueb a garb was the belief that if a
man married a woman who was in debt
be could bo held liablo for her indebted
ness if he received her with any of her
property, and also that if a woman mar
ried a man who was in debt his credit
ors could not tako her property to satis
fy their claims if he received nothing
from her. In England, says an antiqua
rian, there was at least cue caso whero
the brido was clothed puris uaturalibus
while the ceremony was being per
formed in the great church at Birming
ham. The minister at lirst refused to
perforin the ceremony, but finding noth
ing iu the rubric that would excuso him
be married the pair.
To carry out the law fully as the peo
plo understood it tho ceremony should
always have been performed as it was
I in the Birmingham church. Butmodes

I used to accomplish the desired purpose

; tually, iu Essex county at least, all im
modesty was avoided by tho bride
groom's furnishing to tho brido all tho
clothes sho wore, retaining title to tho
same in himself. This ho did in tho
preseuco of witnesses, that hu might i
provo the fact in casu ho was sued icr
. any debts sho might have contracted. A
marriage of this kind occurred at Brad
ford in 1 T3o', and the follow iiig is a trt:o
copy of tho record of the same:
