In the old days, when the deep sea hotel , waa the delight and diversion of John Arbuckle and trouble had not perched iiae a mm oi evil omen upon me cross trees, the old ship needed no press agent. Things were always happening to keep Interest alive. Danny Cupid used to take passage (or secure board) on the Stamlcr and once, three years ago, the rascal shot away an entire quiver ot arrows, six taking effect. Dut things are different now.

Ho Is not working for the Arbuckle es tate, of course, and Capt. Frank H. .Shealey, long tho manager of the deep sea hotel, who Is not altogether used to the ways of preea agents, seems to look upon the young man with none too much favor. Hut he has volunteered to help the girls and to spread the news of their difficulty. He received n reporter for Tin Sun aboard the Htamler yesterday where .she lay between tho Greeupolnt ferry house ami the recreation pier at the foot ot Fast Twenty-third street and Inspiration twinkled In his sharp eyea. With a "Shhh!" and a wave of the hand to caution secrecy, he led the way to the assembly room. "It may be that there Is a way out of this trouble, after all," he confided. "What would you say now If I told you that fifty worthy young men, self-supporting, respectable, generous, are apt to come aboard any day and ask the fifty girls on the Kt.imler to marry them. What would you say to that, eh?" "That certainly would be a tine way out of the difficulty.'' the reporter agreed. "But how do you know all this-. Who are the fifty oung men and where are they?" "That," said the prras agent, firmly, "must be a secret for the present. Hut don't be surprised If a wad of wedding announcements are sent from here." Glrla Do .Vm Know Secret. Somehow, the committee of girls who aro wrinkling their brows trying to think of a plan to ao their home and keep them from moving to dreary rooming houses did not seem to know ns much nhout the probability of marriages on masse as Old the hopeful ' press agent. There was a suspicion ot tears In the eyes of the chairman. Marv Barrett, as she talked about what might happen to the girls when evicted from the Stamler. "You see," she said quite simply, "the problem Is really a grave one for us. Few of the girls earn more, than I or I" a week, and how they will be able to support themselveH If they have to leave this ship, where board and lodging Is only U'.SO a week.

"Our chief hope Is that Miss Anne Morgan, to whom we have appealed, will help us out by purchasing the tftamler or arranging a fund to cover deficits." Many girls who used to live aboard tho Stamler. but who have been married or become prosperous enough to live elsewhere, visited the old ship yesterday to condole with their friends.

A lively seventy pound zebra haby was added to the Central Park menag erie early yesterday morning, and as far as may bo nscettalned from recorda It Is the first zebra ever born In captivity.

A tho stork was exected to arrive with the little zebra some time yester day morning Head Keepwr Bill Snyder nnd two of his assistants, Joseph Cun ningham and Bob Hurton, kept an all night vigil to welcome so important an acquisition to the menagerie. The baby zebra Is 3 feet In height and 34 feet from tip to tail. No name has been selected tor him as yet, but there will be a christening party within the next month Paddy, the father, Is a stocky little animal with coal black and pure white stripes. The baby looks like him. The little zebra Is splendidly marked, con trary to tho assertion that baby sebras are while wnen norn and that the atrlpes do not appear until the second or third month.

Eve did not eat the apple. She did not (rive Adam any to eat nd thus bring about the fall of mutt from a state of Innocence. It waa Noah who felt. He was ordered not to eat of the cassia tree In the Garden of Para dise, but he did, and then the curse came upon him. The curse was that he should have III health and an early doith Instead of living to be 50,000 year old, like his ancestors. These state ments are according to the Sumcrlan theology and wi found In a tablet writ ten before the days of Abraham. The tablet Is now In the' University Mu seum, Philadelphia. A hint of this was given more than a year ago when Dr. Steven Langdon, professor of Assyrlology at Oxford, an nounced that he had translated a part of a tablet which he had copied while In th University Museum. Since then he has compared the tablet with every other known tablet and his torical account, Including the Book of Genesis. Dr. Langdon say this tablet Is at least a thousand ears older than the Genesis account. It was written more than 4,000 years ago and evidently records a tradition which goes back to the early history of man. The Babylonian and Humc rlan accounts place the flood at some thing like 35,000 B. C. and the lapse of time between the creation and the flood Is tilled by ten kings who reigned altogether 432,000 yeirs, an average of 43,200 )eara each. arrntlvp Written aa Hymn. Dr. Langdon'a book will be Issued by the museum to-day. The tablet 1 nearly complete and It story Is In the form of a hymn. In much the same style as the Hebrew poetry of the Bible. Knkl, the water god, and his consort, Nlnella, ruled over mankind In Para dise, here oalled Dllmun, or the aut coast ot the Arabian (Julf, about a hundred miles from the mouth of the Tigris-Euphrates stem. For some reason, however, man dis pleased the gods. Apparently he did not worship them with sufficient fervor. Now It was Nlntu. a goddess, who had created men out of clay. She distinctly said they were her creations. She could not save all men, but by craft managed to save the king, who Is here called Tagtug. which Is variously rendered Xluglddu and Utnaplshtlm. and Is an equivalent, according to Dr. Langdon, of the SumerUn Nauh. which la none other than Noah. So a ship wns pre pared for the king and his companions. The tlfKxl lasted nine months and "man dissolved In the waters like tallow and fat." After the flood Nlntu, Introduced Tag tug, or Noah, to the god Knkl, ex plained how she saved him and certain pious ones, nnd Knkl took him to the temple and revealed secrets. Tagtug became a gardener and was Instructed In plant life by Nlntu, but waa ordered not to eat of the cassia. But Tagtug, or Noah, disobeyed. He ate of the cassia. whereupon Nlntu afflicted him with bodily weakness. All hla descendant)! died comparatively early deaths. Ac cording to the tablets In the University Museum deciphered by Dr. Poebel, only a few of this Tagtug's successors ruled more than a normal number of years. Illrlnr Itelngs Tansht onh. In the ntbllcal narrative Noah sinned by getting drunk. The gods sent eight divine patrons to teach men the arts of wisdom. There are ten such patrons mentioned In Genesis. The Hebrew gives these aa descendants of man, but the Nippur tablet here translated makes them dlvlpe beings. Dr. Langdon looks upon the narra tives In the Bible concerning the crea tion, flood and fall of man to be "an other product evolved from the Baby lonian doctrines." Aa to the early chap ters of Genesis he says : "We are, I believe, on safe grounds In assuming that In agreement with the sages nho wrote our epic of the fall of man there was In Babylonia a deeply rooted tradition that the greatest of all catastrophes, the loss of long Ufe, over took man only after h had lived In Parndlit for many ages. Such I be lieve to have been the doctrine adopted by the crlbe to whom we owe the priestly narrative in luhrew.
