ADVICE FOR YOUNG SAILORS Captain Macnab's maxims for boys who Intend going to sea seem to have the right ring to them. Among the things that a future "A. B." on board his first ship should remember are: "Start your sea life with the firm determination of attaining the top of your profession. Be proud of your ship, be proud of your cloth and aim to be the smartest boy on board. "Ingratiate yourself with the officers, but keep your own end of the ship. Don't put your hands In your pockets in the presence of a superior. Learn to speak nautically and listen to all nautical arguments. Ask to be shown what you don't understand. Don't be too proud to learn from anybody. Re member to be civil to the men and obliging to your fellows. Be first to spring aloft at night when able and don't forget to hold on well when on a lee yard arm. Avoid skylarking near open hatches." Among other advice Captain Macnab gives to young sailors is to take great care of his oil clothes, keep his knife sharp and if he has to fall to try and fall to windward and not to leeward. The captain advises the young tar to learn to play some Instrument; to see all the sights of foreign places, to learn the language of the natives and not to forget to be kind to them. Among the "don'ts" which the cap tain advises all youne sailors to keep in mind are the following: "Don't take too many fine clothes to sea; don't go aloft until you can hold on- don't go aloft in sea boots or with out your knife; don't go to the weather side when you cast up your accounts; don't believe all the yarns you hear and never tell shipmates your sweet heart's name; don't eat all your week s sugar on Saturday night nor slide down backstays and ruin your trous ers. Don't be quarrelsome, but don t take an Insult from anybody." The captain ends up his list of don ts with: , . _ "Don't climb mango trees; don t spend your money on rubbish; don t work bareheaded in the sun; don t scratch mosquito bites; don't forget to write home; don't swear; don't drink; don't desert.— Aerogram. — mym-m ' WON OVER "But, father," the fair maiden plead ed "I am sure you misjudge him. He is 'awfully nice, really, and he has a rich uncle who has promised to give him $100,000 on the day of his wed '""Has he got any documents to prove th«He doesn't need documents. I have met his uncle and heard him say It. "If that's the case go ahead. You can have him, even if he does use per fume on his handkerchief."

B. TRAUGHBER City Marshal anil Tax Collector, Walts If you were unintentionally violating a city ordinance, wouldn't you be Inclined to be good If a good looking, broad shouldered six-footer of about 200 pounds should come up and ask you to desist? Well, if you "go wrong" In Watts,. Just such a man will step up—and that's Traughber. But he will give you a chance to go peaceably home If you re not in real bad; but If the law says you must be held—don't try to get away, for Marshal Traughber will hold you. Mr. Traughber was born at Decatur. 111., and was elected two years ago as marshal and tax collector of Watts on the Citizens ticket, and is a candidate for re-election next April, and as he is such a popular fellow, doubtless will have no opposition. A. B. Waddingham CITY ENGINEER, WATTS Not an experimenter who might cost the city money, but a practical en gineer with plenty of satisfactory re sults to show for his work is what the city of Watts secured when they gave over their engineering problems two years ago to Mr. Waddingham. Young, bright, ambitious, still on the shady side of thirty, his native town Ft. Bascom, N. M., may well expect to chronicle his advancement in his chosen profession. Equipped with a good education, other than college, and successively engaged In Irrigation, mining and municipal work covering ten years' actual service, the municipal work now in course of completion or contemplated at Watts Is In good hands. To show Just what is being done In Watts the work on fourteen streets Is under way; four miles of cement work Is in; a sewer and drainage sys tem Is contemplated; and the total cost of all improvements will total $110,000, of which $50,000 Is now available from a recent bond sale—and all of this work Is under the direct supervision of A. B. Waddlngham, city engineer of Watts. Residence of J. A. Towne, Watts — — K-i.f.-,;, , .:■ ■■■ „, ri , .

A. SILVERS & CO., WATTS Watts Is not a "dry town," but It Is a well regulated town, and the merchants dealing ln spirituous beverages are men of the best type of citizens, with a full realiza tion of what is due a community, and a proper respect for their own business. J. A. Stivers & Co. do not run a saloon, but they do a clean-out, thriving wholesale and retail liquor business In Watts. Two and a half years ago this progressive firm lo cated in Watts, bought the ground and put up a two-story brick building at a cost of $7000, and since then have done a satis factory Jobbing and family trade, free from Just criticism of the most earnest anti saloon element. The firm carries an Inventoried stock of 14000 In both domestic and Imported bever- ages. Including beer, brandy, gin, wine and whiskiesand all goods are sold at Los An geles prices. Despite the fact that Silvers & Co. keep two delivery wagons steadily employed in Watts and vicinity, supplying their family trade, so unobtrusive Is their business as to cause little or no comment. The firm also carries the most popular brands of cigars and tobaccos, and are the only wholesalers of soda water, supplying a large territory. The writer doe« not believe that there la enough money to tempt Mr. Silvers to vio late the law In ihe marketing of his pro ducts, and the city of Watts will never find Its confidence misplaced In allowing thi> gentleman to do business there. 5
