MAKES SHIPS PRACTICALLY UNSINKABLE One of the greatest achievements of marine science1 has received practical demonstration In the new fittings of the Hamburg-American liner Deutsch land. The invention which marks this development of modern engineering was the work of a Mr. Rllston, an Ayrshire gentleman, says the Liver pool (Eng.) Mercury. The system is the simplest in the world. The vessel is divided into twenty-four bulkhead compartments, each of which is fitted with a water-tight iron door. When danger arises these doors, which, of course, are left open in ordinary cir cumstances, can be closed within 20 seconds of the first sound of the alarm bell either collectively from the cap tain's bridge or by means of an appar atus in the steer-room, or individually by hand levers placed by the doors themselves. Once these doors have been shut the compartments are com paratively watertight and secure. If by any mischance the precaution of closing the doors by one or other of the processes named is neglected the door3 are closed automatically by the inrush of water. The hand levers are placed on both sides of the doors and their movement can be arrested at any stage during the downward or upward progress. DRINK LESS; GAMBLE MORE. Habits of Men and Women Have Greatly Changed in Recent Year. Much more attention is now paid to the liver than was formerly the case. The doctors In recent years have traced many ills to drink and have trained their patients to be ab stemious. That is one of the causes of the decrease which has been re ferred to. Another is that the high Bplrlted man, who was "nobody's en pmy but his own," who "drank to keep bis spirits up, Is no longer a favorite. On the contrary, he Is avoided. The Increased habit of dining at restau rants has also acted as a check. It is to be observed, too, that the boister ous element has been almost entirely removed. Up to about twenty years ago "knocker-wrenching," "larking," practical Joking, the hearty style of meeting which found expression in a violent slap upon the back, were not only tolerated, but popular. All that is discredited now. On the other hand, there is much more gambling to-day than there was, though, so far as cards are concerned, the stakes are considerably smaller. Three estates lost in three nights is an incident which this generation is Ignorant of. But almost everyone The Tailor "I wonder which are Mr. Thistlebeak's and which are Mr. Fitznoodle'st I'll send the long ones to Mr. Thlstlebeak." occasionally gambles In stocks and shares, and many make speculation their chief object in life. Bridge has become little less than a disease, espe cially among women. Many of the latter spend most of their afternoons and evenings over the card table. At the clubs, too, bridge - often com mences early In the afternoon, while most of the gamblers in former days only began playing In the late hours of the evening. Letter That Really Was Mailed. Out of the broad window of a fifth- story flat a young man and a young woman thrust halt their bodies just as another young man In a silk hat and a newmarket coat came out of the en trance hall and started to walk across the street. He was carrying a white envelope in his right hand. "Hold it up!" shrieked the girl from the window's hlght "Right before your eyes!" howled the man beside her, a note of glee in his voice. Without turning his head the man on the street held the envelope up before his eyes with a firm grip and a do-or-die expression on his face. When he reached the letter box on the corner he dropped the envelope Into it, arid, turning toward the house, mado a low bow, with his bat in his band. "He's done it!" shrieked the girl. "Hurrah for Jimmy!" yelled the man. It was their way of seeing that a let ter given to a man to mail really was mailed. New York Press.

ADMIRED HIS WIFE'S GIFT. Embarasslng Absent-Mlndedness of a Busy Man. The business man had no time to pick-out a wedding gift for his dear est friend. So his wife went shopping and purchased a very handsome pic ture. "I bought a picture, Jim," she said that evening at dinner, "and sent it up to George Stone's house with our cards. I wish you could have seen it, for I know it would just suit you. In fact, when I picked it out I tried to look at things through your eyes and cuoose such a picture a3 you would have selected." The business man had carried the worries of the day home with him, so he merely remarked: "That's very nice," in an absent-minded sort of way, and let his mind go back to his office again. A week later he and his wife at tended George Stone's wedding. v it was a small affair, and rather infor mal. The business man was wander ing around In the room where the gifts were displayed, looking aimlessly at the cut glass and silver, when 'he suddenly stopped before a picture. "1 say, Carrie," he called to his wife, so that every one near him could hear. "Carrie, this is a beautiful picture. I wish we had it in our house. It's a fine bit of work." St. Louis Republic. THE CRAZE FOR ANCESTORS. New York Newspaper Says It Is 8trong In the West "I have found," said an authority on American geneology, "that the craze for tracing ancestors is much stronger in the newer than the older portions of the country. "I have more patrons by far in Texas than in Massachusetts, and the Mr.Thistlebeak Mr. Fitznoodle "Well, I'll be ""Whose blankety blank pants are these?" sum total of the money I make out of Denver people far exceeds the returns I get from that modern center of an cestor worship Philadelphia. "In a recent mall I' had some fifty letters from various parts of the coun try. Ten were from Texas, four from Missouri, seven had Illinois addresses, Idaho furnished three, California eight, Kansas six, Ohio five, and the rest came from New York, New Hampshire and South Carolina. And this despite the fact that I am an Easterners and have made extra at tempts to get Eastern business. "All this would Heem to be proof positive that the Westerner, all these years that he has been shying stones at his brother In the East for his sup posed prldo of his granddaddles, has been keeping up a secret worship at the same shrine. But, on the other hand. It may be that every Easterner now has his ancestry all traced out, and, therefore. Is no longer fish for the genealogist's net" New York Press. Our Sea Coast Defenses.

There was a dispute in a restaurant the other evening as to whether chaf ing dish orders were actually cooked in those vessels or not. The young woman held to the affirmative, while her escort declared that the lobster a la Newburg or other dish was ready prepared and was simply ladled into the serving dish. The waiter finally was called in to decide the dispute, and gave a verdict against both sides. "When I get an order," he explained, "I tell the chef. He gives the order to one of his assistants. The assistant gets an order of picked lobster from the 'cold meat man' and some white down to him. This he whips with an egg, pours both into the hot dish and; sauce from the receptacle in the steam table. These he heats up together; and when I think it is ready I get some sherry from the bar and take-it turns it over to the man who sees-; that the chafing dishes are ready,' Tnese are kept filled with hot water, and as soon as the Newburg is poured in the lamp is lighted and it is sent, up to the table. "Service In a chafing dish does not especially signify that the' dish has been specially prepared. All special dishes are cooked after the order has reached the kitchen. The chafing dish is merely to keep hot such foods as lose their savor when cold." New York Press. WOULD REMAIN AN AMERICAN. Andrew Carnegie Insisted on Retain, ing His Citizenship. Before Andrew Carnegie accepted the invitations of the cities of Llmer Ick and Waterford he made careful In quiries as to whether the conferring of their freedom upon him would in any way interfere with his status as an American citizen. He had long interviews in the House of Commons with John Redmond, who represents the city of Waterford in Parliament; but It was not until he consulted his lawyers that he agreed to accept the proffered honor. "I want no honors or titles or any thing of the kind," he remarked to John Dillon, who Is a close personal friend of his. "All I want Is that what I am doing in the way of free libraries shall be productive of some good to Both "Ml! 1 HI" the present and succeeding genera, tlons of Englishmen and Irishmen. 1 know that the 'freedom' of the cities of Wate.rford and Limerick entitles, me to rank as a citizen of both, but you must never bother me with vott Ing papers or anything of the kind, because I never Intend to take any part in serious politics outside the United States."
