Dear Margery Doon: Can a man be appointed to , the fire or police department before civil serv ice law goes Into effect without passing an examination? By answering you will confer a favor. R. AV As the civil service law In this city does not go into effect until the 23d of this month, appointments at the present time in the fire and police departments are made by the police and fire commissioners, so that a man could be appointed to either one of those departments before the civil service law goes into operation, but he would be required to pass a physi cal and mental examination, and there would be little chance of his receiving an appointment, as at present there is no eligible list. !

There are holes In the top of the lid to allow the steam to escape If there Is too much of It. It is pointed out that by keeping the steam In the utensil the fowl or meat therein will be kept always moist and will, there fore. be much more tender than If roasted In dryer air. Another advantage is that the cook need not fear hav ing her hands scalded by the outrush of vapor when she removes the Ud, as this can be done merely by raising It on Its hinge* with a long fork, A good remedy to clear the sltln Is the following: Take one teaspoonful of phosphate of soda In half a cup of hot water half an hour before breakfast for five days.

SCJTOAYS. • TO 4. | ill the euii, Bleeping three-fourths of the time and spending his waking hours in repeating the awful tale of his dis- j graceful peonage. To unload the machinery, particular ly' the heavier pieces, was by no means a simple matter, owing to the furious tides that set in and out of the Kalvik river. The first mishap occurred dur ing the trip on which the boilers were towed in. and it looked to Boyd less like an accident than a carefully planned move to cripple him at one stroke. The other ships were busily discharging and the roadstead was alive with small craft of various kinds, when the huge boilers were swung over the side of The Bedford Castle and j blocked Into position for the journey to the shore. George and a half-dozen of his men went along with the load j while Emerson remained on the ship. | They were just well under way when. I either by the merest chance or by ma- | Unions design, several of the rival | company’s towboats moored to the I neighboring ships cast off. The anchor age was crowded and a boiling six mile tide made it difficult at best to avoid collision. Hearing a confused shouting to shoreward, Boyd ran to the rail in time to see one of the Company tugs at the head of a string of towboats bearing down ahead of the current directly upon bis own slow-moving lighter. AI- j ready it was so close at hand as to make disaster seem inevitable. He saw Balt wave his arms furiously and heard him bellow profane warnings while the fishermen scurried about ex citedly, but still the tug held to Its course. Boyd raised his voice in a wild alarm, but had they heard him there was nothing they could have done. Then suddenly the affair altered its complexion. The oncoming tug was barely twice its length from the scow' when Boyd saw Big George cease his violent antics and level a revolver directly' at the wheel-house of the opposing craft. Two puffs of smoke issued from the weapon, then out from the glass-en cased structure the steersman plunged, scrambled down the deck and Into the shelter of the house. Instantly the bow' of the tug swung off. and she came on sidewise, striking Balt’s scow a glaneing bloyv, the sound of which rose above the shouts, while its force threw the big fellow and his com panions to their ltnees and shattered the glass in the pilot-house windows. The boats behind fouled each other, then drifted down upon the scotv, and the tide, seizing the whole flotilla, be gan to spin it slowly. Rushing to the ladder. Emerson leaped Into another launch which fortunately was at hand, and the next instant, as the little craft sped out from the side of The Bedford Castle, he saw' that a fight was in progress on the lighter. It was over quickly, and before he reached the scene the current had drifted the tows apart. George. It seemed had boarded the tug. dragged the captain off. and beaten him half Insensible before the man’s companions had come to his rescue. “Is the scow damaged?” Emerson cried, as he came alongside. “She’s leaking, but I guess we can make it,” George reassured him. They directed the second launch to make fast, and. towed by both tugs, they succeeded In beafehing their cargo a mile below the landing. “tVe'Il calk her at low tide," George declared, well satisfied at this outcome of the misadventure. Then he fell to reviling thy men who had caused it. "Don't waste your breath on them.” Boyd advised. "We’re lucky enough as It is. If that tug hadn’t sheered ofT she would have cut us down, sure.” "That fellow done it a-purpose.' George swore. "Seamen ain't that careless. He tried to tell me he was rattled, but I rattled him." "If that's the case they may try it agu.n." said the younger man. "Huh! I’ll pack a ‘thirty-thirty’ from now on, and T bet they don’t get within a hailing distance without an iron-clad " The more clamlv Emerson regarded the incident, the more he marveled at the good-fortune that had saved him. "We had better wake up," he said. "We have been asleep so far. If Marsh planned this, he will plan something more." "Yes, and if he puts one wallop over we re done for," George agreed, pessi mistically. "I'll keep a watchman aboard the seoas hereafter. That's our vital spot." But the days sped past without fur ther Interference, and the construction of the plant progressed by leaps and bounds, while The Bedford Castle, hav ing discharged her cargo, steamed away to return in August. The middle of June brought the first king salmon, scouts sent on ahead of the “sockeves." hut Boyd made no ef fort to take advantage of this run. laboring manfully to prtgiare for the! advance of the main army, that ter rific horde that was soon to come from the mysterious depths, either to make or ruin him. Once the run proper started, there would be no more oppor tunity for building or for setting up maehinery. He must be ready and waiting by the first of July. For some time his tin-machines had been busy, night and day. turning out great heaps of gleaming cans, while the carpenters and machinists com pleted their tasks. The gill-notters were overhauling their gear, the beach was lined with fishing-boats On the dock great piles of seines and drift nets were being inspected. Three miles below. Big George, with a picked crew and a pile-driver, was building the fish-trap. It consisted of half-mile "leads" or rows of piling, capped with stringers upon which netting was hung, and terminated in "hearts," corrals and "spillers,” the intricate arrange ments of webbing and timbers out of which the fish were to be taken. It was for the title to the ground where his present operations were go ing forward that George had been so cruelly disciplined by the “interests;" and while he had held stubbornly to ids rights for years in spite of the bitterest persecution, he was now for the first time able to utilize his site. Accordingly his exultation was tre mendous. • As for Boyd, the fever in his veins mounted daily as he saw his dream assuming concrete form. The many problems arising as the work advanced afforded him unceasing activity; the unforeseen obstacles which were en countered hourly required swift and certain judgment, taxing his ingenuity to the utmost. He became so filled with it all, so steeped with the spirit of his surroundings that he had thought for nothing else. Every dawn marked the beginning of a new battle, every twilight heralded another coun cil. His duties swamped him; he was worried, exultant, happy. Always he found Cherry at his shoulder, unob trusive and silent for the most part, yet intensely observant and keenly alive to every action. She seemed to have the faculty of divination, know ing when to he silent and when to join her mood with his, aqd she gave him valuable help, for she possessed a practical mind and a masculine apti tude for details that surprised both him and George. But, rapidly as the work progressed, it seemed that good fortune would never smile upon them for long. One day, when their prepara tions were nearly completed, a fore man came to Boyd, and said, excitedly “Boss. I'd like you to look at the Iron Chinks right away.” "What’s up?" "t don't know, but something is wrong " A hurried examination showed the machines to be cunningly crippled; certain parts were entirely missing, while others were broken. "They were all right when we brought them ashore,". the man declared. "Somebody's been at them lately." "When? How?" questioned Boyd "We have had watchmen on guard all the time Have any strangers been about?” "Nobody seems to know. When we got ready to set 'em Just nowr I saw this.” The Iron Chink, or mechanical clean er. is perhaps the most ingenious of the many labor-saving devices used in the salmon fisheries. It is e.n awkward looking, yet very effective contrivance of ■ revolving k;\1v£s _2IuJ—aaj££fiatSs.-» which seizes the fish whole and delivers it cleaned, clipped, cut. and ready to he washed With superhuman dexterity it does the work of twenty liglitring like butchers. Without the aid of these Iron Chinks Boyd knew that his fish would spoil before they could l>e bun dled. in a panic he pursued his in vestigation far enough to realise that the machines were beyond repair: that what hBd seemed at first a. trivial mis hap was In fact an appaling disaster. Then, since his ow n experience left hint without resource, he hastened straight way to George Balt. A half-hour's run down the hay and he clambered from his launch to the pile-driver, where, amid the confusion and noise, he made known his tidings. The hig f:ello'.'. s calmness amazed him "What are you going to do now?” "Butcher by hand." *"1d the fisher man. "But how? That takes skilled labor —lots of it." Ggorgo grinned “I'm too old a bird to be caught like this, t figured on ac cidents from the start, and when t hired my Chinamen 1 included a crew of cutters.” "By Jove, you never told me!" "There wasn't no use. Wo ain't licked yet. not by a damned sight. Willis Marsh will have to try again.” CHAPTER XXI. 1 Hand In the Hark. WHILE they were talking a tug boat towing a piledriver came into view. Boyd asked the meaning of its presence in tills part of the river. "I don't know,” answered Big George, staring intently. “Yonder looks like another one behind it. with a raft of piles." "I thought all the company traps were up-stream." “So they are I can't tell what they're up to.” A half-hour later, when the new flotilla had come to anchor a short distance below. Emerson’s companion began to swear. "I might have known it." "What?” “Marsh aims to 'cork' us." "What is that?" "He s going to build a trap on each side of this one and cut off our fish.” "Good Lord! Can he do that?" "Sure. Why not? The law gives us six hundred yards both ways. As long as he stays outside of that limit he can do anything he wants to.” "Then of what use is our trap? The salmon follow definite courses close to the shore, and if he Intercepts them before they reach us—why, then we’ll get only what he lets through.” "That’s his plan." said Big George, sourly. “It’s an old game, but it don’t always work. You can’.t tell what salmon will do till they do it. I’vo studied this point of land for live years, and I know more about it than any body except God ’Imlghty. If the fish hug the shore, then we’re up against tt. but I think they strike in about here; that’s why I chose this site. We can’t tell, though, till the run starts. A11 we can do now is see that them people keep their distance." iTn He I on tinned Tomorrow.) SERVING CHEESE.
