A Mystery of the Sea [Cipy right, 190«, by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.] We were making the round voyage j fA>in Liverpool to Sidney, calling at I Cape Town, and the day's observation had shown that we were about half way between Cape Town and Australia, when a man aloft sang out that b? could descry a ship's boat about two miles away ou the lee bow. For eight- j eeu days we had not sighted a sail, j We had been as much alone on that j ocean as if ships and men did not ex- I 1st. It was driving with wind and i sea, and until we fell off our course I and passed it within biscuit toss we supposed It to be empty. As we pass- j ed It we saw a girl crouching in the bottom, and when we raised a shout she stood up and supplicated us with hands and arms to save her. The bark was brought to the wind and a boat lowered, and after a little we had the girl aboard. I say girl, for she was not a day over sixteen and was of German birth, though she could speak English tolerably well. It was only when she was safe aboard that we found she had lost her mind and was like a child. Of course the first thlug was to overhaul the boat. She had no name. There were a few biscuits left, but the water keg had been empty for at least three days. There were no oars, no spare clothing —not the slightest thing to give us a clow to the identity of the girl or the name of the craft from which she must have cast off. She had not suffered greatly In a physical way, but was mentally upset and looked about her so strangely that we wondered If she bad ever seen a ship before. She was given a spare stateroom and fell asleep almost at once and did not open her dyes for sixteen hours. Meanwhile her clothing had been Inspected for marks or initials. There were none. While the garments were serviceable, they belonged rather to a wealthy girl than a poor one. It was hoped that when the stranger awoke her mind would lie clear and that we should hear her story, but In that we were disappointed. She met ns with a smile and asked how she came aboard. She did not even recol lect being taken from the boat. I said she had lost her mind. Perhaps It would be nearer the mark to say mem ory, though at the same time it could be seen that the hardships she had passed through had more or less af fected her mind as well. We saw how It was almost at once and did not crowd her. From the first she seemed to feel at home, calling each of us by a name she had selected herself, and she had not been with us five days before the captain sat down to draw her out. There was nothing to draw. In other words, she remembered noth ing previous to waking up In the state room after her long sleep. She was told that she must have been on a ship and that there must have been cause for her leaving it. She had no recollection of such a thing. She must have been going from somewhere to somewhere. She admitted It. but could not name the points. If she had a fa ther and mother, sisters and brothers, she did not know. We were a rough lot of men, hut that girl had the pity and sympathy of every man aboard. The many tricks we resorted to to call her memory back would make a book. The sailors before the mast were allowed to make suggestions, and every day some new scheme was suggested. She knew the uses of the comb, brush and glass, and she could sew. Her table manners showed that she had been well reared. She would take a book and read for hours, but it was a disputed point with us how much she understood. We mentioned the name of almost every town in Germany, but all seemed strange to her. Then we tried South Africa, and our earnestness made her laugh merrily. Nothing was surer than that her father and mother were Ger mans, but when a German sailor aboard sought to converse with her In that language she simply stared at him. Wherever our charts showed that the Germans had a colony In the Pacific we mentioned the name, but It did no good. The girl spoke to us only In broken German and was a child In her ways. She regained her health and spirits aft er a few days and then wandered about the decks asking the name and use of everything she saw. She would exclaim In her native language and sing songs In German, but she would I not speak it. She called the captain father and me Carl and was content not to even ask our destination. By and by we saw that it was useless and gave up trying. She had her own stateroom, was always ready at meal tine, and one not knowing of her af fliction would not have suspected It fram anything In her actions. It was only when she began to talk that yoa saw her mind was a blank. She was treated fs respectfully as If she had been the captain's own daughter, and It was a hard task parting with her at Sydney. She was taken to the German consul there, and he at once bestirred himself to gather particulars. 1 am telling of what took place over twenty years ago, and yet I have a letter from Australia lying before me as I write that says the mystery surrounding the girl, who Is now a middle aged wom an, has never been cleared up. She has never recovered her mind and will : continue to be an Inmate of a home to j the day of her death. Inquiries have : been pushed everywhere and In every 'direction, but without success. Old ocean has secrets that cannot be wrest ed from her. and this Is one of them. M. QUAD. I Teller ads bring résulté. In the Financial World Furnished by C. V.

RULLS SQUEEZE DARING BEARS Latter Run Wall Street Till the Former let Ready to Act NEW YORK. Feb. 26 —New low marks were made in most of the lead ing stocks on the stock exchange at 1 the opening this morning. The bears attacked Missouri Pacifie for a leader, and smashed the price of this stock $4 & share in the first five minutes. The whole market was de moralized and it seemed for the first new minutes as if there was no bot tom to It. Selling orders were galore ; and coming from all directions. Keene was a heavy seller of Read ing and Baltimore & Ohio. Prices at the low level became at I tractive to the investors and this class of buying soon put a check to the de cline. Shorts started to cover and found themselves at the mercy of the bulls who took advantage of the situa | tion and made the bears bid prices j up $1 to $2 a share before letting go j of any of their holdings.
