The passenger department of the
New York Central system, including
lines leased, operated and controlled,
east from St. Louis and Chicago, is the
largest paying Institution of its kind in
the world. It beats the Pennsylvania
system with its leased and operated
lines in the territory named by f1,535,-
758, and is so far ahead of any other
system that comparison, to say the
least, is odious. Poor’s Manuel, which
is an authority on railway statistics, in
its last yearly edition showed the pas

The railroad expert believes that the
number of revenue tons hauled per
mile is the best indication of a rail
road’s ability to handle traffic at the
lowest cost of transportation. As is
well known, the receivers of the Bal
timore & Ohio Railroad have been
spending millions on improvements
and have not completed the work, the
lines west of the Ohio river being in
need of a general rehabilitation, which
they are to get this year. But the
revenue haul per mile in 1897-98 was
Increased to 314 tons and a special re
port for the six months ending De
cember 31, 1898, shows an average of
331.9 tons, quite an appreciable ad
vance. It is confidently expected that
'still further improvement will be
shown before long.

CHAPTER XVll.—(Continued.)
Soon after this, when evening came
on we heard a noise in the forecastle,
and the voice of Hislop exclaiming:
“Stand clear—sheer ofT, Antonio! If
you come athwart me, I’ll knock you
down with a handspike! What! you
grip your knife, do you? Well, Just
do it again, and I’ll chuck you over
board like a bit of old junk.”
“What is the matter now?” said I,
hastening forward.
“Oh, this rascally Spanish creole has
been swearing at the men again, and
threatening old Roberts.”
“He vows, sir, he will burn the
ship,” said Roberts, who seemed con
siderably excited.
“Burn the ship,” reiterated Weston.
“I have a great mind to put him in
the bilboes for the remainder of the
voyage."
“ ’Twere best for all concerned, sir,”
said Tom Lambourne, touching his
forelock with his right hand, and giv
ing the deck a scrape with his left
foot; “or set him adrift with some
provisions in the jolly-boat.”
"Come, come, Antonio,” said Wes
ton, with greater severity than I had
hitherto seen expressed in his open
and honest countenance, “you must
haul your wind —for some time you
have been going too far. I can’t spare
my jolly-boat, and, thank heaven! the
days of marooning are past among
British sailors, but beware you, ship
mate, or the bilboes it shall be, and
wo have a pretty heavy pair below.
And as for you, Marc Hislop,” he
added, in a low voice, when we walked
aft, “take care of yourself, for these
Spanish creoles are as slippery and
treacherous as serpents.”
“I’ll keep my weather eye open,”
said Hislop.
“You will require to do so, I think.”
“You do?” exclaimed the Scotsman,
with growing anger. “If he proceeds
thus, I’ll break either his heart or his
neck.”
Next morning, Roberts, the old man
c’-war’s man, who had always been
Antonio’s chief accuser concerning his
dreams, was nowhere to be found on
board!
All the hands were turned up; the
whole brig was searched, the fore
castle berths, the cable-tier, and every
place below from the fore to the after
peak, but there was no trace of Rob
erts, save his old tarpaulin hat lying
crushed and torn in the lee scuppers.
He was last seen when turned up
to take the middle watch, which ex
tends from 12 to 4 o’clock a. m., and
Antonio was then In his hammock.
Roberts was entered in the log as
“having fallen overboard In the
night;” but his loss cast a terrible
gloom over all the ship. Suspicion
grew apace, and seemed to become con
firmed, as open war was soon declared
between the crew and Antonio.
Every man was ready to take his
“trick” at the wheel, rather than trust
the Eugenie to his steering in the
night, lest he might let her broach to,
and lose her spars, or do some other
mischief; and no man. if he could
avoid it, would lay out on the yard
beyond him. No man would walk on
the same side of the deck with him,
or exchange a word, or a light for a
pipe, or use the same cup or plate; so
he was generally to be seen, leaning
moodily and alone, against the wind
lass bltts, with his black eyes fixed
qn the horizon, as if he expected a
sail or something else to heave in
sight.
We shall soon see how all this ended.
CHAPTER XVIII.
We Cross the Line.
We were now in tho latitude of burn
ing days, of starry nights, and bright
blue seas. The winds were light, and,
as usual, near the line, there was a
tremendous swell upon the ocean,
which rose in long and slowly-heaving
hills, without foam or ripple—smooth,
glassy and without sound.
On a lovely night, when the ocean
seemed to sleep in the moonshine, we
crossed the equator.
The Eugenio was running with the
lee clews off—l. e., with a flowing
sheet—when Father Neptune came on
hoard, and the usual unpleasant pranks
were played on those who had never
passed the girdle of the world before.
Great prouaratlons had been In
progress all day in the forecastle, and
these were perfected under cloud of
night. All the crew wero on deck save
Antonio, who turned in, having prob
ably a dread of what was about to en
sue, and knowing that ho wus anything
but a favorite.
Accompanied by the shouts of tho
crew, and preceded by Will White,
playing “Rule Britannia” on a violin,
old Father Neptune was drawn on a
species of hurdle aft to the quarter
deck, where Weston stood ready to re
ceive him, with his hat in one hand
anti a case-bottle of brandy in tho
other.
Under an old swab, which had boon
well dried and curled to make a wig
for tho son of Saturn and Vesta. I
recognised the grotesquely tattooed
visage of my friend Tom Lambourne.
A cutlass was stuck In his girdle, and
he wore a huge paunch of canvus
stuffed with oakum.
In a gown manic by the sailmaker,
Ned Carlton officiated as Amphritrlte;
and both deities were armed with hnr
poon-j. oß* emblems of their dominion
over the seu.
Tho attendant Tritons were got up
in the same fashion, and all wore false
noses of singular size and great bril
liance, with low wigs and long tails.
On Neptune and his goddess receiv
ing a dram and questioning the cap
tain about his crew, it was discovered
that Antonio and I were the only two
on board who had never crossed the
line before; whereupon the Tritons
whooped and danced as they laid vio
lent hands on me. I submitted to the
usual shaving and so forth with a
good grace, and compounded, to avoid
other annoyances, for two bottles of
brandy, and ascending to the main
cross-trees without going through the
lubber’s hole. But for the Cubano
there was neither ransom, escape nor
outlet; and the poor wretch, in conse
quence of his mysterious antecedents,
was very roughly handled, the more so
that he had threatened to use his knife
if molested.
It was soon trundled out of his hand
by one body of Tritons, while another
soused him well with salt water as he
was conveyed past the long boat,
which was lashed amidships, and in
which they were stationed with buck
ets ready filled.
Held fast on every side, he was
brought before the “goddess-born” and
inexorable monarch of the main, who
ordered “the Lord Chief Barber at
once to shave him.”
Now, as Antonio had a rather lux
uriant beard and mustache, the plenti
ful application thereto of a compound
of tar and slush, such as we used for
greasing the masts, was the reverse of
agreeable; but the stern orders of Nep
tune, which were bellowed hoarsely
through a tin trumpet, were faithfully
and elaborately obeyed, and the con
tents of a dirty iron pot were smeared
over the cheeks, beard and mouth of
the Cubano by Billy, a mischievous
ship-boy, with an unsparing hand.
“Demonio! Maldita!” was heard at
intervals, and greeted with laughter;
but when he attempted to storm or
swear the brush—a reeking tuft of
oil, tar and every horrid grease—was
thrust Into his mouth.
The Lord Chief Barber was now
commanded to remove this noisome
mess with his razor, and he scraped it
off with a piece of hoop, which had
been carefully notched for the purpose
—a process which, as it uprooted sun
dry thick portions of Antonio’s coal
black bristles, caused him to yell and
sputter out hoarse Spanish oaths al
ternately.
He was again deluged with salt
water; and greater serverities were
about to be practiced upon him, as
some of the Tritons cried for “the
ghost of Roberts to come out of the
sea;’’ others, to “smoko him, by put
ting his head in the hood of tho cook’s
funnel,” when Weston ransomed him
for two bottles of brandy, and he was
permitted to slink away to his bunk,
breathing vengeance against all his
tormentors.
Grog was again served round, the
deck was cleared for a dance, and the
crew footed the hours away in a suc
cession of hornpipes, while the grim
Cubano lay growling in the forecastle.
Three cheers for the Captain, and
three more for Marc Hislop, terminated
the fun, and all but the watch retired
below.
“They have gone too far with that
fellow, as some of us may discover be
fore the voyage comes to a close,” said
Hislop. when we were having a parting
glass in the cabin. *
“Yes,” replied Weston; “he-' v is a
dark dog, and though I am not very
rich, I would give a hundred pounds
to fathom the mystery of old Robert’s
disappearance. Well, here’s to our
wives and sweethearts at home.”
“I have neither sweetheart nor wife,”
said Hislop, as he tossed off his glass;
“but I have a poor old mother who
loves me as well as either could do.”
Weston’s eye wandered to the por
traits of his wife and child, to whom
lie was tenderly attached, and for
whom all his savings, by salary, ton
nage. and hat-money, were carefully
hoarded; for whom, poor fellow, lie
tempted tho dangers of the great deep,
the war of the elements, and endured
the hardships of a sailor’s life—his
wife, hla little one, and their home—
“his all; his sheet-anchor In this
world, and his guide to the next,” as
I once heard him say, forcibly and
strangely.
CHAPTER XIX.
The Cubano Unmasked.
As wo kept the coast of South Africa
well aboard, a few days after we saw
Capo San Roque, or. as it is sometimes
called, Point Pelinga, the northeast
ern extremity of Brazil, rising from
the blue water like a purple cloud.
But it diminished to u low black streak
on our weather quarter when the sun
set, and wo found ourselves ploughing
the waves of the South Atlantic.
There fell a calm for u whole day
after this, and while the Eugenie
rolled lazily on the long glassy swells,
with her topsails flapping, und her
courses hauled up, the sole amusement
of the crew consisted In catching al
batrosßCH. or in killing them, unde
terred by the old superstition that it
was a bird of "good omen,” or by tho
story of the "Ancient Mariner,” of
which they wero probably ignorant.
A flock of these gigantic sea-birds
congregated under our stern, whoro
they gobbled up everything that was
thrown over to them; so Hislop and I
proceeded methodically to fish then
on board.
We procured strong lines, baited the
books with pieces ot pork, lashing
thereto a buoy formed of a common
cork, and lowered four of them over
> the stern.
They had scarcely touched the
water, when amid a furious flapping
of heavy pinions, they were eagerly
swallowed; the hooks and lines began
to bear taughtly, and we soon had four
gigantic albatrosses splashing the
water Into froth in their ineffectual
efforts to escape.
We towed them in, hand over hand,
and after measurement found the
smallest to be eleven feet from the tip
of one wing to the tip of the other.
Though rank and fishy in flavor, the
flesh of these birds was made into
sea-pies, on which the crew were re
galed for two days after, and they par
took of it with great apparent relish.
But Jack is not very particular, es
pecially when at sea.
Though none of the crew shared the
superstition connected with the de
struction of an albatross, and probably
none, save Hislop and myself, knew
the splendid ballad written by Coler
idge, it would seem as if our misfor
tunes commenced with that day’s wan
ton sport!
The huge sea birds became shy and
left us. The sun set amid saffron-col
ored waves, and the western sky was
all aflame, when the sails began to
fill and collapse as the wind came in
heavy puffs, causing the masts to sway
from side to side, and the bellying
courses to crack and flap with a sound
like thunder.
At last there came a steady breeze;
the courses were left fall, and with
both sheets aft, for the wind was fair,
the Eugenie once more walked through
the Bhining waters.
Full, round, and silvery the moon
arose, and tipped with liquid light
every wave, that seemed to dance on
ward with the brig, which in half an
hour had the snow-white foam flying
in sheets over her catheads.
It was about the hour of 1 in the
morning that the horrible events
which I am about to relate occurred.
I was in the middle watch, relieving
Weston, who, as the tropical dews
were heavy, always ordered Billy the
cabin boy to give me a glass of bran
dy-and-water before going on deck, for
fear of ague, and then he turned in.
The sullen Spaniard Antonio was at
the wheel. Tom Lambourne, Ned Carl
ton and I were walking to and fro,
loitering at times, and looking at the
compass to see how she headed—now
aloft to observe how the sails drew —
anon over the side, where the water
bubbled merrily past, or ahead at the
patch of blue and star-studded sky
which was visible under the leach of
the fore-course, as the brig’s bow filled
every now and then, and she rolled
heavily from side to side, as all ves
sels do when running before the wind.
All was very still, for, save the bub
ble of the water in the wake astern,
or a gurgle as it surged up in the rud
der case, the creaking of a block, or
the iron slings of the lower yards, not
a sound stole upon the first hour of
the silent morning.
Two of the albatrosses we had
caught were hanging by the legs from
the gallows-top abaft the foremost,
where their great extended wings
swung somewhat mournfully to and
fro in the wind and by the motion pf
the ship.
(To be continued.)
HOTEL’S GOOD POINTS.
These Are tliu l«lut« of a Man Wlio
Ikiiotr*. Too.
“I have a record of over 700 hotels
where I have stopped,” volunteered a
well-known and popular minstrel per
former to a Washington Star reporter,
“which are scattered all over our glo
rious country, from Maine to the Rio
Grande, and it is to be presumed that
I know something of hotel life after
living in them and in hotels alone
nine months out of every year for the
past twenty-five years. Besides the
700 and over I have a record of, I
have stopped at some hotels where I
did not make a record. At many of
the 700 I have stopped from ten to
twenty times, generally from one to
six days each time. Now, what I am
getting at is that those who complain
most of hotel life in this country are
those who know tho least about It.
During three months of each yenr I
livo at my own home. I come in con
tact with wanderers, traveling people
like myself, and associates, by the
thousand, and I hear what they havo
to say about hotels and hotel life. Tho
professional traveler has no kick like
the amateur or occasional traveler;
he knows enough to know that he is
as a rule better fed at even the second
grade hotels than In tho ordinary pri
vate house; thnt is, he has more to
eat. if he desires and a larger selec
tion to choose from. As far as the
room is concerned, tlie traveling man
only has it to sleep in, and, provided
tho bed is good, he does not caro a
rap about the other furniture, or
whether the room is papered or white
washed or not, so that It is clean. In
the minstrel business a ballad singer
Is generally the hardest man to please,
and If we find that he likes a place,
It suits all the rest of the company.
My opinion that tho hotels feed well
goes with them all. north, south, east
nnd west. Now and then some nro
specially good. The difficulty with the
so-called poor hotels Is that the eaters
are bad —It 1h not the food. A poor
sleeper likewise makes a very poor
bod. The ballad singers say this, and
what they say goes for all It is worth.”
Dry Philosophy.
“Then? Is one? thing." continued the
Dry Philosopher, "that can bo proven
by a goat's head—a striking counte
nance is not always a sign of bruin."
TEDDY ROOSEVELT'S PIECE.

One day. while he was a schoolboy. It

one of the best declalmers In the school.
HU elocution was greatly admired by the
scholars and It was equally a source of
satisfaction to his teacher. On this par
ticular Friday afternoon a number of the
town people had come In to witness the
exercises and everybody was expected to
do his best. Young Roosevelt had selected
for his declamation and carefully commit
ted to memory the well-known poem,
“Marco Bozzurls." He went to the plat
form, made a stately bow and com
menced :
At midnight In his guarded tent

and there he stuck. He had forgotten the
lines. But he started again at the begin
ning:
"At midnight in his guarded tent
The Turk was dreaming of the hour
When Greece her knee “
but he could get no further. He coughed,
wiped his lips with his handkerchief and
blushed painfully.
"When Greece her knee "
"When Greece her knee ”
but it was hopeless, and he looked over
toward his teacher for sympathy.
"Grease her knee again, Theodore, ’ sug
gested his teacher, with a wink, "and may
e she’ll go."
"The island of Porto Rico, William, Is
one vast and fertile garden." "Well, you
can move down there, Eliza, If you want
to, but I’ll stay right here. The weeds in
Chicago grow fast enough to suit me."

For well we know tnat If we once let
down.
The things we told would fly all round tae
