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
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.

"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."

J. 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
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

J. 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
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
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.
