EXIT THE BLUEJACKET.
In Modern Steam ttattleahlpa Athletlo
8*1 lore PUy n Minor Part.
A proportion of the bluejackets of any
fully rigged ship wero necessarily ath
letes. The "npper yardmen" in a lino
of battle ship or u frigate were excep
tional men in this way, and mnob more
so perhaps jrst about the time that sail
power was receiving its death warrant
(ban ever before. These young men had
to raco aloft to nearly the highest points,
at top speed, eight or ton times a week
when the Khip was in harbor, to keep
their heads and tna'ntaiu their breath
?while "holding on by their eyelids," as
the phrase went, and niunipnlating
with a careful and measured order of
notion tho various und iutricato arrange
ments for' 'crossing" or "sending down"
tho royal nnd topgallant yards. It was
all done at full speed, for it was uni
versally held that tho nppor yardmen
gavo a character to tho wholo ship and
that one whieli was foromost in this ex
eroiso was ever considered "the smart
est Bhip in tho floot. " Tho upper yard
mouworo nlways tho coming men. They
had moat opportunities for distinguish
ing themsolvos, were the best known,
mid wore most under the eye of tho au
thorities. Thoy dovoloped groat muscu
lar power in chest, shonlders and arms.
Their lower extrowities suffered, and
ouo always knew tho men who had been
upper yardmen by their tadpololiko ap
pearance when they were bathing.
But in tho modern steam lino of bat
tlo ship nnd frigate those extremely oth
lotio specimens formod a very small
minority of tho "ship's company," and
nouo of them could lose his turn at be
ing uppor yardman so long as tho ship's
reputation dopeuded on tho speed with
which the upper yards wero crossed and
Bent down. In harbor tho rest of tho
bluejackets had tho handling of yards
and sails for exercise onoe or twico a
week, but at sea the uso of sails for pro
pulsion grow less nud loss important,
and most of tho work nloffc was more of
an oxcrciso and loss of a necessity. ?

.Is an "Acme" Machine made by the Acme Cycle Company, oi
Elkhart, Indiana. The Winner of the Machine may make Iiis
own selection from their catalogue.
The "Acme" Bicycles cost One Hundred, Ninety and Eighty
live Dollars each. The winner makes his or her choice from the
Catalogue, regardless of price.

All you have to do is to get cash subscribers to The ADVERTISER.
Any boy 01 girl can get subscribers. Any person young or old can get
this fine" bicycle by making a little effort. A list of live subscribers may
win it. If a lady wins the bicycle she may get a ladies' wheel. Or she
may get a gentleman's wheel and sell it if she prefers.
It is a good plan to begin work at once.
As soon as you get a subscriber send in his name and the money so
that the paper may be promptly sent to him. State that you are a con
testant for the bicycle and an accurate list will be kept of all the names
you send. Two half year or four three months subscribers will be
counted in the contest as one.
No Loss Possible.
Not Even of Time. "If I don't get the largest list I shall have had
my trouble for nothing" you say. No you won't either. The Aijver
tiser will give at the end ot the contest, except to the winner of the
bicycle, twenty-five cents for each subscriber sent in by a contestant.
So if you get forty subscribers you may win the bicycle. If you don't
you get ten dollars anyhow.
No person in any way connected with The ADVERTISER will be
allowed to enter the contest.
Don't lose a minute. Begin at once. Who gets the "jump'' has a
big advantage. ?

And every taxpayer is required to

In overy community thero aro persons

The assessing and collecting laxes is

lota and buildings and their value, that

of October the Auditor and Treasurer's
duplicate have to be completed and an
abstract of the work in tho Comptroller's

glance that the Auditor has no timo to
take returns or anything else much be

that all taxpayers will make their re
