It is tbe general impression among
loso who do not know that the duties
ad responsibilities of tho average skip
tr of a regular liner are as many and
serous as the successful bank president
lid that in addition bis salary is just

It comes to duties the sea dog has as
rule much more to bear, while, unlike

i Ono of the most successful lines rnn-
,-t'PB between this port and Europe pays
, iJt commodoro, who has been over 20
Xtars in this particular service, 30 a
- month, or about $175. This is about $40
week. Tbe other captains in this Hue
' ate paid tho equivalent of $125 for iiO
days' labor. Any number of matter of
no fact stories have been printed with
tfco object of showing that the com
tnaudcrs of tbe great liners received in
omo cases sums ranging from $7,000
? to 812,000 per year. But such talk is
idle. There is not a single captain on
- the cccau who enjoys such an inccme.
That many of them deserve to is cuoth
r natter entirely.
" In an argument that master mariners
re well paid the point is advanced that
tho officers are fed while at sea and
fven alongside the wharf with tho best
that the market affords and at tbe ex
Itecnso of tho steamship company. Yet
$0 per cent of these well fed gold lnces
' are married and have big families that
demand food, clothes and Thome either
'here or abroad, whether or not tho ship
lis in port. This establishment costs as
fniuch wbilo tbe master mariner is on
the bosom of old Neptune as it does
when he is playing dry cob at home for
a short period. His going or coming
adds or deducts little from tbo general
There aro few pursers on the Atlantic
who command a higher monthly salary
than 10. Tbcy must have years of ex-
perience, a host of friends and bo "top
' sawyers," as they say at sea, to com
mand even this iiguro. Unlike tbo
! stewards, and, in tho majority of canes,
; the ships' surgeons, the purser is sel
dom made tho recipient of a generous
Itit). jnououv seems aoio to exniuin wny
1 it is so, unless it be that tbe purser,
handling all tbe money of tho voyage,
which includes extra passage money,
I the receipts from the smoker made
through tbe chief steward, tho wine
bills from tbo tables, all amounting to
a pretty large figure, is recognized as
tbe financial end of the floating hotel
and so treated accordingly.
The smoker and its many attachments
are luxuries which tbo captain is not
permitted to enjoy, or if permitted rare
ly indulges in. Any skipper who would
make himself a jolly good fellow in tbo
smoker would loso tho confidence of
those under bis caro as fast as a trout
taking a May fly. Not that his appear

1 perfection of their idea of the practical
and capablo mariner.
Tbo poorest paid man iu an official
incapacity ou a great liner is probably
tbo surgeon. Somo passengers have tbe
i opinion that as the company pays tbo
ship's doctor those using him on a trip
' f aro net supposed to give liuanuial recog
nition to his altenton. It is true that
' uouu is obliged to, but ho should. Tho
I demand of n doctor at sea is in nowise
'I difkreut from that demand on laud.
Tho steamship companies give a passeu
ger board, lodging and transportation at
a cost that could not be equaled on any
railroad of tbe earth, when distance,
accommodation and attention are con
sidered. The luxury of a doctor, while
generally forced, is at the same timu an
auxiliary of sea travel for which the
company receives nothing, and wfiich,
when free medicines aro included, as
they invariably are, costs quite a good
deal. Experienced ocean travelers sel
dom forget tho surgeon when necessity
makes them call for his attention dur
ing a trip. But these experienced tour
ists aro fow and far between. New

Kiinple Measures Tliat Prove Effective In
a Case of Uynoope.
Fainting, or syncope, is a temporary
Iops of consciousness, occurring with
enfeebled and retarded action of the
heart, as manifested, by n slow and al
most impereeptible pulse, extremo pal
lor of the face, especially tbe lips, and
a coldness and lividity of the hands and
Tho attack of unconsciousness is gen
erally preceded by a feeling of slight
nausea, a swimming before the eyes,
noises iu tbo ears, a fnllnnwtnf the linnd
and an indescribable feeling of "ail
goneness, "of the extreme wretchedness
of which no one can have any idea who
has not experienced it in his own per
son. The voices of those around gradually
become indistinct, objects grow dim,
the breathing is oppressed, and finally
darkness closes iu, tho muscles relax,
and the sufferer passes into that myste
rious and awo inspiring state called un
consciousness. This lasts for a variablo
period and then tho mind gradually re
sumes its supremacy, the patient coming
again into possession of his suspended
faculties, like one raised from tbe dead
rather than like one aroused from slum
ber. In its essence the act of fainting is
merely a symptom of anusmia of the
brain, with which is associated a great
ly weakened action of the heart, both
dependent upon somo usually disagree
able impression from without, such as
the sight of blood, an unpleasant or
very powerful odor, u sudden fright,
pain, oppressive heat of tho atmosphere,
tbo receipt of bad news, less often a
great and suddon joy, and tho like.
Young women, people in delicate
health, the nervous and sufferers from
heart disease are moro prouo to syncope
than others, yet fainting may occur in
the strongest men from the effect of
Were it not so familiar a sight a per
son in a faint would fill tbe bystanders
with terror, so closely does tbe condi
tion simulate death, but fortunately the
state is ono usually of short duration.
The patient should be placed flat on
the back, with no pillow or support un
der tbe head. Thoso not in immediate
attendance should keep at a distance,
and fresh air should be admitted freely.
Tbo clothing should bo loosened about
tho neck and tbe waist, the faco should
be fauuod, and respiration should be
stimulated by flippiug a few drops of
cold water on the face aud chest. The
bare chest and arms may also be slapped
with a wet towel. Smelling salts may
be held cautiously under the nose or a
few grains of pepper blown into tho
nostrils. Any ordinary swoon should
quickly yield to those simple measures.
Bills For Killing Criminals That Were
Formerly Paid In llollaud.
Edam, iu Holland, where tho Dutch
ebceso conies from, has a museum of
local antiquities, aud among the not
least interesting of the exhibits aro tbo
accounts of tbo municipal executioners
during the eighteenth century, says the
London Chronicle. Cue of these, fuuo
tiouaries, by name Vogel, presents a de
tailed bill dated Dec. 10, 1713, in which
ho sots forth a claim for (i florins for
one decapitation aud 3 florins each for a
sword aud winding sheet, with 3 florins
14 cents for a cofiin for the decapitated
ono. His charge for hanging a criminal
was also 0 florins, with the further ad
dition of 3 florins for "cutting down
and impaling ditto." "Creaking a man
on tho wheel" was a costlier luxury
aud ran to i) florius, while for "supply
ing nine uew lashes for scourge" the
cbargo was 27 florius.
On the whole, however, Mr. Vogel
was a moderate niau in bis charges or
the value of humau life went up a good
deal in the uext 50 years, for iu the uo
less circumstantial accounts of Johannes
Ka, presented Aug. I, 1704, we have a
charge of 12 florins for "going on board
the Hans and preparing instruments of
torture, " with a liko charge for "tor
turing ono person. " Hut this must have
been for the lesser torturo only, as ou
Aug. 30 tlx) samo Johannes sends in a
bill for "torturing tbreo persous at 75
florins a head'
while a fow days later uo less than COO
florius is charged for "banging four
persous at J50 florins each, "and for
"flogging two persons and burning a
third" ho exacts 150 florins. Clearly
considerations of economy, if not of hu
manity, must havo tended toward tho
reform of tho criminal code in Holland.

STOLE A $10,000 OPINION.
The Widow of a Famous General Who
Needed Money to Dress Well.
Some years ogo tbo widow of a fa
mous Union general was intimato with
the wife and daughters of a justice of
tho supreme court aud was as familiar
with their home as with her own,
which was in tbe immediate neighbor
hood. Sho was also intimate with the
family of a prominent and popular lob
byist, who was supposed to reproseut
Jay Gould, C. P. Huntington and other
men of large interests whenever any
thing concerned them in congress. All
the parties are now dead, excent tho
lady in the case, whom 1 will cal. Mrs.
Smith. She was a handsome, ambitious
and frivolous woman, whose husband
committed suicide by drowning himself
in his bathtub. Sho lived a gay life
afterward, but managed to keep many
of her old friends. Knowing her lovo
of money and the fact that her income
did not keep pace with her expenses,
tho lobbyist told her that ho would givo
her $10,000 if she could get him a copy
of the opinion which tho justice was
expected to deliver iu tbe supremo
court on tbe following Monday, involv
ing tho constitutionality of tho Thnr
man Pacific railroad law. Ho told her
that he knew the opinion was in manu
script and believed that tbo jndgo had
it locked op iu the desk in his library.
Sunday morning, as soon as she saw
tho justico and his family si art for
church, sho went across the street,
around Thomas circle, rang tho bell ami
told tbe servant that sho wanted to look
at a book iu tho justice's library. As
sho was accustomed to go about tho.
house almost daily tbcy thought noth
ing of it, and sho was allowed to re
main undisturbed iu the samo room
with tho decicion for nearly two hours.
It is. supposed that she had a set of ful.-e
keys, for tbo justice said tlmt thu opin
ion was locked up in his desk and could
not have been reached otherwise. But
at any rate the lobbyist is known to
have obtained tho opinion iu advance,
and the woman was shortly i:fter ablo
to pay off somo pressing obligations. An
investigation disclosed tbo facts I havo
stated, and it seemed to bo I ho only
possible way tho opinion could have
becu obtained. Of courso tho incident
terminated relations between tho two
families, and when tho story got out
about town Mrs. Smith found it moro
comfortable tarent her Washington resi
dence and remove to New York. Chi
HANDKERCHIEFS WE USE.
328,000,000 Mlicle Ones Conxiiuicd Iu the
Trade Yearly In I'll 1m Country.
"Very few people outside the trade, "
said a leading wholesale dealer in hand
kerchiefs in New York to a reporter re
cently, "aro awaro that tbo consump
tion of handkerchiefs throughout the
United States amounts to about 75,000
dozen daily. This means 27,375,000
dozen yearly, or 82S.500.000 inglo
handkerchiefs. To satisfy this enormous
demand tbero aro always kept in stuik
iu this city at least 350,000,000 hand
kerchiefs. It would be extremely di.Ti
cult to say what such a snpi ly ;f gin ils
is worth in the aggregate, as handker
chiefs sell at wholesale at anywhere
from 30 cents to 40 per dozeu, accord
ing to quality and finish. But tho fig
ures which 1 have given you aro not
exaggerated, and they throw a strong
light ou tho gigantic dimensions of an
important branch of tho dry goods busi
ness. "A comparatively small number of
handkerchiefs are manufactured in this
country, aud thoso that are made hi ro
aro mostly of the cotton and inferior
sillc variety. Tbo finest filk goods ::ro
imported principally from Japan, which
country sends us annually between 17,

tbo imported cambrics from Brussels

cotton product manufactured iu Penn
sylvania and New Ji rsey may bo had

"Tho capital invested iu this linsi
uess is immense. It may possiUy
amount to $100,000,000, but owing to
tbe fact that tho trade is distributed
nothing like accurate figures can lo
given. There arc six or fivi u firms iu
tho dry goods district which deal exclu
sively in handkerchiefs. But only two
of tbeso houses handle tho domestic i.r
ticlo extensively. Most of the largo

of tbo city, but New York, as in scver

ness, is tho great distributing center for

Ono night, as Major Handy told the

the next one of thu terrapin detached
himself from the rest and, crawling
across thu table to tho major's plate,
