FOR THE LIFEBOAT.
AN ENGINE NEEDED TO DRIVE IT THROUGH THE SURF. Perhaps Some Yankee Inventor May Sue eeed Where British Ingenuity Has Failed-Dangers of Succoring the Ship wrecked-Exhausted Men at the Oars. It is not a little discouraging to thoseinter ested in maritime affairs, and particularly to those interested in devices and schemes for saving the lives of the shipwrecked, to read that the efforts of a committee appointed on Oct. 1, 1887, by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution of Great Britain,.to obtain a plan for propelling a lifeboat by some other means than oars in the hands of its crew, had en tirely failed. In December, 1886, while en deavoring to save the crew of a vessel wrecked on the coast of Lancashire, a lifeboatand her crew were overwhelmed by the waves and lost. The disaster was of the sort to rouse the attention of the entire British nation, and the Royal Lifeboat institute atonceset about improving the lifeboats in service along the British coasts. Among other steps taken was the appoint ment of a committee, consisting of Sir Fred erick Bramwell, F. I. S.; Sir Digby-Murray, Bart., and Mr. John Thornycroft, all men having special knowledge in the matter be fore them, to solicit drawings and models from inventors and manufacturers of life boats of some new craft to be propelled by some power other than manual labor at the oars; such, for instance, as steam or elec tricity. The committee were empowered to offer gold and silver medals for the best of these proposed devices, shouldany be offered, while the successful inventor would, of course, have received a number of orders for boats from the institution as soon as the award was made. Entries closed on Oct. 1, at which time so many had been presented at the rooms of the committee that it has taken all the time of the committee for nearly four months to complete their examination of the devices. Sir Frederick Bramwell, who writes the report, says that no design worthy of a silver medal, or even of special mention, was found. The British inventor having failed, perhaps some Yankee may now succeed. LAUNCHING THE LIFEBOAT. The need of somesuch device for propelling lifeboats becomes apparent when the condi tions under which, the lives of the ship wrecked are saved are considered. The wrecked ship drives ashore in a furious gale, taking ground perhaps half a mile from the beach whence the lifeboat must be launched, and always, too, if along the American coast south of Montauk Point, on a bar a good many hundred feet from shore. The patrol man brings word to the crew, and, if it be night, the men must jump from their warm bunks and hasten out into the wind and sleet or snow that chill them through and through. The labor of dragging a heavy boat over the sand is not enough to warm them before they must wade out into theicy surf that drenches every thread they wear, and then, as the boat floats, leap in and grasp with benumbed fingers the heavy fifteen foot oars and pull for their own lives, as well as the lives of the sailors on the stranded ship. The next wave, if it does not hurl them back on to the sand, half buries them in its freezing cold depths, and then leaves them with coats and wraps weighed down with ice. Unmindful of the discomforts and terrors around and before them, the life savers struggle on, and eventually reach the lee side of the wreck to find their labor only just begun, and their danger, especially from floating and falling spars, greatly increased. A line must be made fast to the ship, over which the solid water sweeps with tremen dous force, and then the sailors, who are lashed in the rigging and are helpless, must be lowered into the lifeboats. It is a work requiring the nerve and strength of a man in his prime, undiminished by previous exer tion, but it is performed by men who have been, perhaps for an hour or more, straining every nerve to its utmost tension in the effort to reach the ship. LANDING THROUGH THE SUR. One hour, may be two or three, must pass before the sailors are allin the boat. Iuman powers, even in the best trained men, have a limit beyond which they cannot be strained and stand the test. Encumbered by the load in their boat, exhausted by their labors in securing the load, the life savers at last cast off the line that holds them to the wreck, and with weakened grasp take up the heavy oars to face the gravest danger to which a mariner is ever exposed, the danger of lahding through a heavy surf. Small wonder itf even the thought of this danger fails to flag into ade quate action the worn out muscles of the men, and they drift toward shore rather than row with the wind and waves, and fail at the critical moment to pull toward the open sea, and are caught by a booming roller and thrown headlong into the black depths at its base, and finally are cast dead on the sand, from which they had launched their boat to save the lives of others. The propelling power of the lifeboat is gone when it is most needed. It ought not to be either a difficult or an expensive thing to provide such a boat with some other sort of driving power. The boat is not hard to propel It is about 26 feet long, 7 wide and 334 deep. It is decked over on the plane of the water line, and the hold beneath is divided into compartments, which are usually filled with cork and paraffine wax or some such lightsaubstance, so that if the compartment be broken open it will not till with water. It reqaures acrew of six oarsmen and a coxswain. It an adequate propelling scheme were pro vided, one of these men might be dispensed with. After the boat was launched and his weight saved, if the propelling device weighed 500 pounds, it would therefore net but a little over 300 pounds additional weight for the boat, but something ought to be made in these days of tempered steel and aluminum that would weigh less. If some of the men who are taking out patents for car couplers, railroad switches, and washing machines at the rate of a dozen a week, with no reason able hope of ever getting the price of the patents out of their devices, were to turn their attention to lifeboats, something worthy the attention at least of the Royal National Life boat institution, perhaps even of a silver medal, might be produced. When it is con sidered that such boats would readily sell for $2,500, perhaps $3,000, each, the margin for profit is apparent at least to a boat builder. -New York Sun. A Theatrical Superstition. It is a superstition in the theatrical profes sion that the placard "No Free List" is the harbinger of bad business, as it generally happens that it is rarely displayed excepting at establishments where the business is not good. It is contended that the mere fact that the houses are crowded deters "deadheads" from making applications for the courtesies of the establishment, and that consequently the sign is not necessary. It is doubtful if the display of the sign "Standing Room Only," is not generally a piece of folly, as often people would buy admission tickets if they thought there was a chance of a seat who are deterred by this announcement, which is so seldom true.-New York Times Success in the Metropolis. The common opinion that New York is the paradise of western humbugs and tricksters is untrue. These people do abound here be yond a doubt; but they are short lived. They flourish today and are gone tomorrow. They take no root, and have no hold upon any genuine interest, they attain no perma nent success. It is only genuine merit that succeeds in the great city. Men are here subjected to a test that soon takes the conceit out of them. They are taken for just what they are worth, and no more, and he must show himself a man indeed who would take his place among the princes of trade, or among the leaders of thought and opinion. He may bring with him from his distant home the brightest of reputations, but here he will have to begin at the very bottom of the ladder and mount upward again. It is slow work, so slow that it tries every quality of true manhood to its utmost. The daily life of the dwellers in the great city makes them keen, shrewd judges of human nature, and they are proficients in the art of study ing character.-Joe Howard in New York Grpphic. A Bather Frank Admission. At a recent gathering of Unitarians, one speaker recited an anecdote which admits of large and varied application. It was the story of a minister who, preaching on ex change, said some strong things about fast horses. He was told after the sermon that he had touched one of their best members at a tender point. "Well," said the preacher, "I cannot change my sermon for him." In the evening the man was introduced to the min ister, who said: "I understand that what I said touched one of your weaknesses. I as sure you that I waswltogether unconscious of the weakness when I said it.", "Oh, do not tmuble yourself," said the man. "It is a -ery poor sermon that does not hit me some where."-New York Intelligeneer. 'NASAL VOICES CATARRH AN FALSE TEETH." A prominent English woman says th. American women all have high, shrill nasal voices and fal.e teeth. Americans don't like the constan twitting they get about this nasal twang and yet it is a fact cauised by our dry stimulating atmosphere, and the unive sal presence of catarshal difficulties. But why should so many of onw women have false teeth? That is more of a poser to the English.i It is quite impossible to account for it except on the theory of deranged stom ach action caused by imprudence in eat ing and by want of regular exercise. Both condit ons are unnatural. Catarrhal troubles everywhere prevail and end in cough !and consumption, which are promoted by mal-nutritioni induced by deranged stomach action.! The condition is a modern one, one un known to our ancestors who prevented! the catarrh, cold cough and consumption by abundant and regular use of what is now known as Warner's Log Cabin Cough and Consumption Remedy and Log Cabin Sarsaparilla, two old-fash ioned standard remedies handed down from our ancestors, and now exclusively put forth under the .trongest guaran tees of purity and efiicacy by the world famed makers of Warner's safe cure. These two remedies plentifully used as the spring and summer seasons advance give a positive assurance of freedom, both from catarrh and those dreadful and if neglected, inevitable consequen :es, pneumonia,-lung troubles and consump tion which so generally and fatally pre vail among our peophI. Comrade Eli Fisher, of Salem, Henry Co., Iowa, served four years in the late war and contracted a disease called con sumnption by the ctet.rs.q. He had fre quent hemorrhage... After using War ner's Log Cabin Cnrugh and Consump tion remedy, he says. under date of Jan. 19th, 1888: "1 do not bleed at the lungs any more, my coo;ih does not bother ,ie, ard I do not hav, any more smoth ering spells." War~ner's Log Cabin R',.se Cream cured his wife of catarrh and she is "sound aind well." Of course we do not like to have our women called nose-talkers and false t'.eth owners, but these conditions can be readily overcome in the manner indicated. PRECURSORS OF THE PIANOFORTc. Some Fine Old Instruments Which Lead Up to the History of Piano Playing. Bernardus Boekelman, a well known teacher of the pianoforte in this city, has re cently become the possessor of two exceed ingly interesting and curious instruments, both over 250 years old. They are a clari chord and a spinet, or, as the instrument was commonly called in England, a virginal. Historically the former is the more interest ing of the two, and it was only by a lucky chance that Mr. Boekelman managed to buy it last summer from the museum of the Brus sels Conservatory of Music. It is an oblong box, about four feet long, sixteen or eighteen inches wide, and not more than five inches high, without legs or support of any kind. It has forty-four keys and only twenty-two double strings, some of the strings being de pended on for three notes, some for two and some for only one. The action consists of a simple lever, the key, one end extending forward of the strings to receive the pressure of the players' fingers, the other reaching under the strings. This end is armed with a bit of brass, called a "tangent," which is forced up against the string by the finger blow, simultaneously setting the string to vibrating and dividing off the portion which it was necessary should sound to produce the desired note. All the lower strings are called on for three notes, which proves that the instrument was made before the interval of a second was admitted in harmony. The clarichord, though the most simple form of keyed string instrument, enjoyed the great favor of musicians down to the early part of the present century. Bach and his sons preferred it over the harpischord and even the pianoforte, which in their day was, of course, a crude instrument. The virginal owned by Mr. Boekelman was made by Jean Ruckers, in Antwerp, in 1622. Ruckers was one of a family of spinet and harpischord makers famous for their skill. In this instrument the strings are plucked by tiny bits of stiff sole leather, placed in instru ments that rested on the keys, and were forced upward by the pressure of the fingers. They were called "jacks," and Shakespeare in one of his sonnets speaks of them with envy at being privileged to kiss the "tender in ward" of the lady's hand, concluding with the reasonable advice: Since saucy Jacks so happy are in this, Give them thy fingers, me thy lips to kiss. -New York Tribune. Writlng for a Living. "The magazine has come to be the path way that leads into literary society," said an editor of a leading periodical to the writer yesterday, "but the pathway is along and rough one and unless the prodder is amply provisioned before he begins his journey, he is likely to be starved out on the route. There is no subjection in which there are more gener ally mistaken ideas than on the remuneration of literary work in magazines. There is a popular impression that the well known con tributors earn princely incomes by their articles. People have heard so much about the $10,000 a year which Mr. Howells gets for his work in Harper's, that they think all the better mknown magazine writers receive some thing like the same amount for their work. But nothing could be further from the truth. I am quite sure that the contributors, whose names are seen oftenest in the periodicals, do not, on an average, earn $1,000 a year from this kind of work, and that much only by persistent labor. "I assure you that any man, however gifted, who would depend for subsistence on contributions to the magazines, would soon become a Grub street specimen. Newspaper work pays far better, and that is why so few newspaper men's names are seen in the mag azines. An able journalist could earn a sure $100 on a newspaper during the timeit would take him to get up a $50 magazine article, which might find its way back to him 'with thanks,' etc. Writing these articles is very well as an adjunct to an income from other sources, but to any one who should think of settling down to gain a subsistence by them I would say: 'You will lead a happier and more comfortable life with the pick and shovel.'

Bridget-So I did, mum; I said you was out, but I thought you'd be back in a few minutes, an' begorra, mum, they said they'd come in an' wait.-New York Sun. A Woman Named Sherman. Shortly after the war closed the negroes began to call each other "lady" and "gentle man," but in speaking of the whites they generally called them that "man" and that "woman." An instance occurred a few years ago in which Gen. W. T. Sherman played a part. The general was sitting in front of his house one Ileasant evening with some friends, smoking and talking, when a fellow as black as the ace of spades sidled up, and addressing the general said: "Is de a lady here named Johnson?" "No," said the general. "Well, said the darky, "I think there must be a lady of that name living here, because she is my wife, and she is work ing for a woman named Sherman."-Wash ington Critic.
