THE SKIPPER. "the last half boor of tbe steamship Saraband liad ouma. AH day she hnd lain in the pitiless boy, croncbing tin dor the fierce blast of theuorthetwt frnlo, the seaa rvreopiiitf her decks, ami now 11 on board kuew that lis had bnt a abort time to live. She had had hor day. Ba'.lt to carry 130 passengers, she bad ouoe been one of the popular boats going through tbe rewly opened canal to the east, and her long Cosh deck had been tho scene of many a gay gathering, whoa bcr pat-sen-gere bad asefmb.id tinder the a wiling to langh, flirt and talk after dinner. Bnt larger and faster boats bad come, and her glory bad departed, bo that iter many violssitudi-s here ibo lay, her paaacngor aocTnmodation taken ont And the ipace filled with grain from the Black eea porta, linking. Her deck were flouting at an n;!o of 45 degrees, for the wheat hud shifted, and tbe lay nearly on her beam ends. Erery tnovable thing had long been wished away, and one structure which abonld have been immovable the en gine hatch had aJao been smashed in. That was the immedinte reason why the was going to founder. Tho engine room plate were awash, and the Ore in the stokehole were ont, and for the laft two hours she bad only been kept bend to sea by means of a sea anchor made of tbe derricks and spurn A portion of ev ery sea that came on board fonnd its way through tbe makeshift contrivance of spars and tarpaulins nailed over tbe gaping chasm in hor dock that marked tbe former position of tho engine hatch, and each fonnd ber little-lower in tho water. In tbo shelter of the bridge deck, the only structure which had been strong enough to resist tho remorselobs violence of tbe seas, clnstered ber crow, some 80 bands, bard faced suilors and grimy firemen, tho former quiet, apathetic, almost careless; tbe others, save for a few, dead whito with fear, spending their last moments in cursing, with foolish, meaningless repetitions of the tame words, the ship, their look in coming in her and ttio skipper for not making uno of tbe two remaining boats which bung from their davits at tbo lee side of tbe bridge deck, and which from their elevated position had not gono When tbe other boats hod been swept nway. On the bridge stood the skipper and the mate, bearded, elderly men both, straining their dospairing eyes into tbe wall of mistand ipray which relentlessly rtehed down npon them, in tbe faint hope that some puBsing vessel might appour through the gloom of the gale. At length tho skipper turned and scrambled down the sloping bridge to where tho mato crouched on the lee raiL "Wo shall have to try tbe boats, Mr. Smith. She'll not last much longer I" he shouted, the wind picking np each word as be uttered it and sweeping them oway to leeward, m if jealous of tbe mate hearing them. "It's a very poor chance," said the mate, "but I suppose it a our only one. How Ioug do yon give her?" "Half an hour at the outside. Are fhe boats all ready?" "They 'vo been ready since morning, '' said the mate, "but can we get thorn in tbe water nnsmashed, and won't the firemen rush them?" "1 don't think so, " replied the skip per. "There's time enongh and room enough for all to got away. " But his face took a grimmer look as Be led the way down from tbe bridge to the ohartbouse, tha mate following mm. Inside they could bear each other with greater ease, and the skipper, while taking his revolver from a drawer, gave the mate bis final instructions. "We'll lower the forward lifeboat first, as she's the biggest You will take charge of her, get your crew aboard and have every one in bis place before we tart to lower, so that you can shove off as soon aa she touches tbe water. If those patents act, yon onght to be all right" The boats were fitted with patent contrivance by whioh tbe tackles holding tbcra are automatically released the moment tbe boat is water borne, so that there is no unhooking of blocks to be done while tho boat is getting dashed fo pieces against the ship's sido. "I shall be all right, " said tbe mate. "bnt what about you? Who's going to lower tbe falls of tbe after boat? Yon Can't manage it from the boat itself, with all tbe crowd yon will have on board." "I'll lower her from the deck," said tbe skippor. "If they have a long painter made fast to tbe ship, they can easily pull up again under the counter, and I 11 make a jump for it " "Mind yon don't jump short. You'd have poor ohauoe with those boots and oilskins on," said tbe mate. "Ob, I'll manage," replied the skip per. ' Call tbe men up. " Tbe men came op in a body, and tbe kip(r came out on tbe deck, revolver in band. "Tbe ship's sinking." be said, "and I have decided to take to tbo boats. Thoro's plenty of time and room fur all to get away in safety if yon obey my arderá Yon will remain standings where 70a are till I call your names; then tbe man whose name is called will take bis place U tbe boat Any man tbat starts for the boat before I tell bim I shoot understand all?" There was a low murmur from tbe men, and the skipper continued: "Air. Smith will take charge of tb loat" Tbo mate, with look at tbe skipper, limbed luto tbe boa as abe bong is tho davits, Tho KlMppcr then called the name of tho crnw ho proposed to send hi her, sending fcVft the sutl'iTS, so that the rr.nt) luiyíjt place .Vh In Ills proper station In t'ie Ixmt, tt-foro the firemen, Mo., who would le nf no tij la the critical ninueuViis tf getting her siway from the ship's eli! crovdul bcr tip. But these mine íl remen did not under stand his tea sou and thought l:o was showing undue prefermco to his own meii, mid, a luavier ma tlan nininl striking the Btr.aimr, thero was a cry of, "fcbe's gMiiK down, and bo's send ing tbe sailers lirst !" nuJ a rash for tho boat "8tand hack I" ct !H t!;o -dripper. Crack, and tho lending treman spread out bis hands fi"d pitched ou to his face, rolling in a limp bnndlo down cu 1 to the leo mil. Th5 rust f the men I stopped. They wiulit as well bo drown . ed as shot, thi-y thought, and they hnd I died together, locking with horrified glances at their dead comrade. The ' skipper pinned, lowered bis revolver and theu cal'ed the next nnme. They had l .arntd thoir hi 011 uud went qui et lv t j tbe boat, v hieli wtts got safely away and drifted out of sight in tbe mist cf the guio. The other boat wnsfiilod without any inisbíip, nt;d the skipper, the oiily man. left on tho deck, lowered her. She also (rot clear awuy and drifted out to the full length of her painter. The thipper walked aft to wait for tliein to hnul up sgnin. He had to pass tha body of the dead mun, nud he did not look at it. The boat was hunliug np on the painter and was getting clore, Tho skipper got on tbe rnil ready to jump. At that mo ment a fireman, tho broth r of tho man ho bnd shot, reached over tbo boat's bow, and with a ciy of "Blast yon, stop and drown with Dill I" out the painter. The distance between tho ship and tho boat began to widen instantly, and in spite of the frantic efforts of the rail- ors at the onrs the- deeply laden boat was swept away nud blotted bnt in the mist. The skipper got down from tho rails and made bis way back to the bridge deck. Ho had just ten minutes to live. Ten minutes to prepare for the noxt world after 40 years at eeal Ho climbed np ou the bridge agaia and eat on the canvas wind screen to think. His wifo and children, who would look after them now? His wages were 13 per mouth. On that he bad bad but small ruanco to save. Well, he supposed the Shipmasters' socioty would do something for h?r, bnt she would have to give np hor littlo bonss at For est Cate and drop from tho position of a captain s wife to lotting lodgings. Perhaps ouo of tho children coald be got into an orphanage. ' If not, well, it meant sturvuliou or the workhonse. He thought of his own life, cf his hard, ill used boyhood, cabin boy in a (ucheo timl er ship; cf bis manhood, spent in unremitting toil in all parts of the world ; of tho various" ships he bad com manded, in each of which ho bad been expected to use less coal, less point. fewer provisions and to go with smaller crews than in the lust He thoncht of the blackguards ho bud had to eotuinund as crews, and the trouble he had had with thorn, and the old Bailor proverb rose to' his lips, "To live hard, work bard, dio bard and go to bell after all would be too d d hard." Well, be'd not bnd mnch fun out of lifo, and now he was going to find out what it all meant. Anyway bo bad always done nia best for his ship. His oyes fell on the dead body of tbe fireman. That too I If tho man should indict him at the bar of the last judg ment, he would answer there, as he wculd havo nnswored to an earthly court, "hi ra judgment it was neces Gary for tho safety of the men in my charga" A sudden quiver warned- him she was nearly gone, and be rose to bis feet for ono lust look to windward. As be looked into the blinding spray, be saw a large wave come ont of the mist, and knew it would swamp hor. Ho gripped tho rail with" both bands, uud bis lips moved in a half forgotten pray er. "Our Father, which art" and the wave swept on. Bnt the Saraband had gone. The skipper had gone to meet his fireman where "thre shall be no more sea." Temple Bar. Wataon aa a Captain, Being conscientious and consistent al ways, Watson's religious temples, com bined with a stern sense of military duty, sometimes led np to peculiar iuci dents. At oue time a seaman bad been found guilty of overpaying his leuve and coming ou board intoxicated. He fully expected to be sentenced the fol lowing morning, but was surprised to bo called from his hammock at mid' night He confronted thocuptoin on the quarterdeck. "You are gnilty of misconduct That calls for punishment," suid the captain earnestly. "You ere probably in sns pense and are worrying over it I also have worried over your case, and my cousoienco will not allow me to inflict needless cruelty upon yen by keeping your mind racked with uncertainty for even another hour. Yon will be confined in tbe 'brig' on bread and water for five days." The evident earntatnes and sincerity of the captain so impressed the culprit tbat be clumsily thanked bis command' ing officer as be was being led away to prison. New York Times. Wlralaaa Talxfrapbr.
