He "Nothing could ever come be tween us, could It, dear?" She "I can't think of a single thine unless I should happen to become engaged to some other man before we get mar ried." Then and Now. Whereas In 1725 the mall from London to Lisbon took 22 days In transit, and according to Daniel De foe was a "branch of the revenue not very much valued," It now occupies but 43 hours, and Is a financial sue cess. ' Why Ammonia Cleans Clothes. Ammonia, the great spot remover of the American people. Is really a gas dissolved In water. It belongs to the nlknll family, and on account of Its mineral origin Is the foe of all oils and grease, which explains the easy way It disposes of spots that soap and water cannot affect. Dath ammonia Is a fine cleanser. Queer Customs ef British Navy. There are very many ancient cus toms In the British navy, some of which are "wrapt In mystery," For Instance, when officers go aboard or leave their ship. It Is Invariably the case that the Junior stern Into the boat before his senior, although at the end 1 of the Journey the order Is reversed. This curious custom Is as old as the navy Itself. Carelesi Management. If the term "carelessness" must be used. It might well be applied to man agement which permits hazards to ex ist; hut surely not to the Injured themselves, for self-preservation Is the first law of nature, and It is Incon ceivable that anyone with rare oxcep- should wilfully permit or cnusc i y to themselves. II. weaver ry. In Industrial Management. England's First Flag. 1 'he early Inhnbltiiuts of Kngland, 1 .e those of other countries, used em blematic devices of one kind or an other. That of the Suxous was u white horse. The Introduction of Hags Into Kngland Is nsTlbed to St. Augus tine, the missionary, infl his followers, who after the convention of King 1-thelbert entered Canterbury In pro cession chanting nud bearing small banners. Where Maldsns Do Wooing. The maiden of liurum lights u "love lamp" In her window when the desired one pusses at night, ami It ho be will In?, he rpcedlly conveys the ylml In formation to her. When the .Sumatra girl has reached twenty-live and her life up to then has been passed In strict seclusion und no one bun come to usk fur her hand, she attends to tho matter In her own way, dresei,In red, and goes out twice u day, until successful, to tlnd n husband. ' . Fear Spiritual Weakrieaa. Fear Is simply spliltuul weakness, which may bu compared to nennus weakness of Ihr Isudy, In other words, It Ik lad; of spiritual sense of strength. And, as you know, spiritual strength cornea from right morals, Just as physi cal strength comes from right living. A keen sense of being right drives out ull fear. Hence u certain triumph of the defenders of right over their op ponents, even la spite of auperlor numbers. SUf II BARBECUE The D. H.

During the second year of the pun lluropeau Mar I commanded n 2,M ton tramp steaincr called tlio Ajax. I left Smyrna lu August, lMfi, with a cargo of rugs and other Asiatic goods for the ort of New York. I was obliged to steam through the (ircek arehlis-uigo, which I knew af forded line nesting fur corsairs. I did not fisjr (Irecks, but I dreaded Aslatus from the opposite enstem const. If I could get through to the open Mediter ranean sen I would feel a reasonable expectation of getting if cargo lo America and a large profit. One day while lsissliig lietween two Greek Islands I was called from the noon meal by the lookout, who rciwrt rtl a small craft resembling a tug put ting out from a cove and steering a course with the,cTldcnt Intention to head us off. Through ray glass I saw that bIio carried the German flag. Now, I did not believe that any Ger man craft would be salllug In tho.sn waters, tyhlch wcro occupied by the allied fleets, especially the nrltlsh. If this one were really German I was ot the opinion that she was a tender for a submarine. IIotvvcr, I could only wait and lcaru. I kept on my course, watching In every direction for a peri scope, till tho tug-for such she proved to lio was close on to my iwww. Through my gla.s I could sco on her deck a number of men In sailor cos tuna; who might be In the German service; but. Judging from their swarthy complexion, they were Asiatics. ini I nller manner wore tlie imltorni ot a t.er man naval olllccr, but I Mlcved ho had obtained It without having a com. mission. Ho wns whiter than his men and might have been u European. One thing I noticed particularly there was no oppearauce of cannon. Whatever armaiynt there was doubtless consist ed of such weapons as could ls wield, ed by Individuals. However, while I looked a juirt was osned and the ihho of a llttlo liarker appeared. It was us terrifying as u. bull pup. I did not be lieve It could sink us. though It might put our machinery out of commission. With Its appearance the commander of the tug called through a megaphone something lu Ccrmau w hleh oue of my men who understood the language thought to be n demaud for surren der. A submuritio was ready to blow us out of wuter. We were glW-n ten minutes to taku to the Isiat.v Never was there a more isilpable case of bluff. There was no subma. i rlne, nothing which could be relied on to sink us. We were lu danger of be. lug boarded uud ovcri"wcred by Aslat. lo pirates playing the submarine act. Though I was not deceived, I confess It looked to me that the only chance for our lives wus to tuko to tho boats and leave our cargo to the pirates. There were a few imall anus aboard, but not enough of them or men to uso them to put up an udequate defense. Hut we had a means of defense that I had often thought of using lu case Of being attacked by tbo small enemies that Infest certain Asiatic coasts. I determined to try It now. I had plen ty of hose, and 1 ordered It uttached to tho steam cocks of the boiler. Tbcro wero two base which could bo used separately. I asked for more tltuu from the pirate and was told that not u uilnutc would bo grunted. So I or dered the men to pretend to begin tho work of lowering tho boats, and they made a gnat ado with the rojs'S, but accomplished nothing. Iturlug tho few mluutes they wero thus engaged we were attaching the hose to tho boiler and running the nozzles on deck, when1 they were hidden under the gunwale. When ull was ready I or dered the men away from the bouts, and word was shouted to the pirate that If be wanted our shli to come uud take it or If ho Intended to blow us up to do o. This was evidently not In his calcu lations. There was n conference among them; then wo could see arms brought I on deck. It was evident that they lu I tended to Isjaul us. Meanwhile they I ran up against us uud were ubout to lash to us when I took a hose uud, pointing it down at them, scut u stream of scalding wuter among them, which caused them to desist and get out of range as soon as possible. i A number or tiieui nan ueeu scnnieii just enough to mako them furious with pain, and, niter taking time to consider, they launched n lowhout cur ried on their deck and manned It, aud while' the lug cumo under our bows tbo rowbout appronihcd our stem. There wuh miiiio protection for them both fore and aft, but us soon as u man uppcurcd at either point he re ceived a do.se of btcnm that hviit him howling back, und some of them were knocked Into the brine. This plan having fulled, both hourd lug parties retreated uud, Joining forces on tho tug, began to pepper us with their little barker. I beut men below to plug holes that might tie made un der water; but, fearing duniugu to our holler which would put us at llwlr mercy, I determined to ussuiuu the of fensive. Pointing the vessel straight nt tbo tag before sho could get out of tho way, I run alongside of her und drove ovcry man below with Bcnldlug water. It was uow evident that I bad fac tored them, and, putting on all steam. I showed them u clean pair of heels In a few hours I was clear of the archipelago aud In duo time reached New Yort, whetu I nolu niy cargo at a tpltndld profit.
