dent they were caught in an awful
storm on Thanksgiving day. The
big steamer had to heave to for
seven hours, and for the same
; length of time most of the pas
sengers heaved too. There was no
thanksgiving dinner served that
day and none wanted. Captain
Cousins, master of the President,
who has been on the ran for 15
years pronounced it the worst
storm he had experienced during
that time.

PRISONER LURES TURKS TO
GRAVE IN SUBMARINE
Sacrifices His Own Life to Destroy
His Enemies
LONDON. Dec. 20 —A story of
an extraordinary exploit by a mem
ber of the crew of a captured
French submarine is reported by a
trustworthy war correspondent at
Saloniki.
Some time ago the French sub
marine Turquoise got into diffi
culties in the Sea of Marmora and
was unable to avoid capture, her
crew being taken prisoners.
The submarine was placed on ex
hibition in Constantinople and was
visited by a number of members
of the Turkish general staff, ac
companied by some Turkish engin
eers.
The officer sent a messenger to
bring one of the French engineers,
whom they asked to explain the
machinery of the vessel.
The Frenchman saw he might
have an opportunity of destroying
the submarine and left a note for
his comrade prisoners saying be
would do so if he had a chance,
bidding them good-by.
i While on board the submarine
the Frenchman managed to set the
machinery going before it was
noticed what he was doing. There
must in all probability have been a
struggle in the submarine as i*
sped away --from shore, but at all
events it was seen at some distant
from the spot where it had been on
exhibition, and then it was observ
ed to sink. The number of Turk
ish officers stated to be on board
the lost vessel is six.

THE JOKE WAS
ON THE PEDDLER
- - -
A peddler arrived one evening i>
a small town and went to t?ie only
hotel there. Every room had al
ready been engaged, but the hotel
keeper offered him a room which
he could share with a negro. The
peddler agreed, and asked to b”
awakened early the next morning.
Several jokers overheard the
proceedings, - and while the peddle; ,
slept blackened his face.
The next morning, being in a
hurry to catch a train he mad >
straight for. the station when he
was awakened. While passing a
mirror in the waiting room he j
stopped suddenly and exclaimed:
“Hang it all! They’ve called the
wrong guy!”_
After January the first I will
engage in the practice of dentistry
at my residence.
