Tie Same Is FroTlded for Every Man as That Which Goes to the Admiral' Table. A man who has just returned from a visit to a United States warship, on which his son is stationed, complains of the food dealt out to the men, and adds that it is not as good as served on the officers' tables. As several hun dred Chicago boys are now serving their country aboard warships their friends at home may be interested in knowing the nature of their food. Every man aboard a government ship receives the same amount and class of food, be he a landsman or an admiral. Its financial equivalent is nine dollars per month, and no au thority below an act of congress can change the quantity, unless in emer gency cases, when the captain may or der short rations. The bill of fare at sea for one week includes salt pork, beans, pickled beef or "salt horse," as it is known on shipboard, hardtack, coffee, sugar, pickles, salt, pepper, flour, raisins, vinegar and molasses. So many ounces are dealt out to each man, and if he ever goes hungry it is from some other cause than insuffi ciency of food. Each mess has its own cook, usually a landsman, who, besides being re lieved from deck duty, receives his own board free by having his rations com muted, that is, drawing nine dollars a month instead of the ship's provisions. If he be handy at cooking he is usually given the money equivalent of an ex tra ration and sometimes a ration and a half. Breakfast will consist of "scouse," or bread hash, which is very palatable; good coffee, with sugar, but no milk; hardtack, or set biscuits, which are made of the best flour and in taste and hardness resembles the Bent water crackers. At poon there is plenty of good pork and beans, bean soup, coffee, pickles, hardtack and such extra dishes as the cook can prepare with his limited means. Supper consists of what is left from dinner made into ' soups, hashes, etc., with bread and coffee and pickles on the side. The other foodstuffs first mentioned are served on other days. Fresh bread is always on hand, if the cwok knows how to make it, and he generally learns. Duff, puddings and like dishes arc served with molasses, AYheu the Khip is in port fresh beef, potatoes, vegetables of all kinds are served three times a week. If n man could always have as good food lis t lie American maa-of-warsman jtets he could count himself fortunate. He would grow fat and never know the pangs of indigestion. Chicago Even ing Xews.

In 1719, a new governor, itustamente lhistiilo, lotted on his ar rival that all the royal officials had been busily embezzling and pilfering, leav ing the treasury nearly empty. After ascertaining the facts he set to work energetically to recover the funds, and to punish the guilty, who thereupon, as seems to have been customary in such cases, sought asylum in all the churches. One of them had carried with hira certain official records nec essary for the verification of the ac counts, and thess Busiillo requested tlie archbishop to make hira surren der. The archbishop replied with a learned argument, drawn up for him by a Jesuit, proving that the governor's request was illegal. Bustillo lost his temper at this, and arrested the arch bishop, who forthwith cart an inter dict over the city. Then the monks and friars turned out in organized bands, marching through the city with ciucifixes, and shouting, "Viva la fe! Viva la Ig!etia!, They speedily col lected a mob which they led to the palace; the doors were broken in, the governor and his son murdered, and when tfcn tir?hvi?nvp was rel-a.ed hi assume.!

There are only t wo types of torpedo boats that seem to meet the require ments of torpedo service wih a squad ron at sea, and, from fixed bases, for the defense of seaports and harbors. ff -rs-ahlgh-eea torpedo toat of 250 to 3(0 tons, generally sIlP-Har.t Q the present HiitLsh destroyers, to mount three long lS-inch torpedo tubes on the central fore and aft line, with a spare torpedo for each tube, and a homogeneous battery of eight three- pounders, preferably of the autcmatis type; this boat to keep the sea with the fleet at all tiroes, and to be used either as a tornedo boat or destrover. The speed and coal endurance are to be as high as the displacement and armament of the boat will permit. i he second type is a first-class tor pedo boat of 150 feet and 120 tons, car rying two or three torpedo tubes, all for the long 18-inch torpedo, and mounted on the central fore and aft line. In case two tubes are carried there will be a spare torpedo for each tube; If three tubes, then one torpedo only for ea-ii tube. The gun arma ment is to be four thrce-poundcrs. A speed of 21 knots will be ample for thia boat, and will permit of a coal endur ance of at least 13 hours at full speed. Hoth types should have twin screws, and the engines should be in separate compartments longitudinally ,to mini mize the risk of complete disablement, and to permit coal protection through out the machinery space. The pro portion of the two types of torpedo boats could very well be one of the larger to two of the smaller, and that number would be a suitable, propor tion to each battleship and er.iiurecl cruiser. In -fuet, it would be wibe policy to provide for a destroyer and two torpedo boats whenever a large ship is laid down. Cnssier's Magazine. Parrots Are Sever Original. I have read of a father who would not let his children tell their dreams because there is in such narrative too great temptation to wander from the truth. Parrot stories are too often like dream stories only half true and they are sometimes plainly to any who knows the true talking power of these birds made up entirely or greatly exaggerated. While the par rot has a certain unmistakable sense of humor and is correspondingly wise, none of the various species is, or ever was, capable of the original wise and witty talk familiar to us ia newspaper anecdotes. In fact, the parrot is never original in speech; it 13 altogeth er imitative; and a bird tha t has never heard spoken words has surely never uttered a syllable. But judging from parrots clever use of what they learn to say, it is almost certain that thov come to know, in a measure, the mean ing cf the phrases they learn. Char lotte Boner, ia St. Nicholas.

The vocalist caroled mer rily once and waa recalled, much be cause the people pursued the mechan ical act of applauding. It was about ten o'clock when a wom an entered the place, accompanied by her escort, a tall, dignified man. She carried a pug puppy in her arms. The black-nosed fellow took in everything, alternately jumping' cn the table and trying to escape to the floor. Cut he was held in leash while the couple slow ly disposed of a bottle of cool beef.

It may be a fact that the course of true love never runs smoothly, but it is not the less susceptible of proof that love laughs at locksmiths and stern parents, always finding some way to cir cumvent the latter when they come be tween young hearts. An elderly busi ness man on the west side has just come to a full realization of this, and though he is known to his friends as a man of somewhat crusty exterior generally, he seems to enjoy his defeat. He has three daughters genial, maidenly and lovable girls, who since their early teens have had admirers galore. The- bano of their lives was that when the young men made evening calls the old gentleman invariably hinted at ten o'clock that the hour for parting had arrived". Now, this was an unchristian time to set the young fellows packing. They knew it and the girls fully agreed, but none of them knew just how they eoul$ overcome papa's objections to a later session. A couple of weeks ago three young men called in company to see the girls, one of the visitors being a hearty andi sincere admirer of the eld est daughter. The six young people were having the jolliest time imagin able when a clock on the mantel chimed ten. The girls sighed, knowing full well that in a few minutes they would hear their father's unwelcome call downstairs: "Girls, it's after ten o'clock." It came sur.e enough and the young men reluctantly took the hint. At a near-by drugstore where they pur chased a good-night cigar the admirer of the eldest girl was struck with an in spiration and communicated his idea to the other two.- They were delighted with it and promised! cordial coopera tion. A few evenings later the three called again one pleasant evening and found the three girls sittiug on the front steps. Although the evening was pleasantly warm-, each cf the young men carried on iiisarmalightovcrco3t. One of the, cirL-i offered ti enrrv the. 0 . j coals inside, but the .instigator of the j plot said: I. "Never mind, I kuow where to hang them." ... - ' -- Koyal makes the food pure, wholesome sod delicious.

Here he hung the garments up, first taking from the folds of each the big gest and noisiest alarm clock which the conspirators could find. The clocks were carefully set at ten minutes after, ten by the timep'iece on the mantel in side. All were placed! on the lid of the hall tree. Time passed rapidly and all too soon the chime rang. ten. A few minutes later the old gentleman came, to the head of the stairs and said as of yore: "Girl?, it's after ten o'clock." ' Just at that moment the horrible rattle- of the three alarm clocks rang out., The girhs sprang to their feet in alarm, not knowing whence came the unearth ly disturbance. The young men kept sober faces and left the house at once. Then the old man ca-me downstairs andt was assailed with reproaches from the girls, who declared that the young men were insulted and'would noteome back. "1 thick you're mean, papa," said one,' "to ring those horrid gongs that way." "Great guns," yelled the old man, "you don't suppose I know anything about that infernal racket, do you?" He was evidently in earnest, and a search wti bi gun. In a few ncondi papa found the three alarm clocks.

This assertion is made so frequently that those who dis like the idea of the fashion becoming really established feel that it is only a call of "wolf," and do not fear the establishment of so ugly a mode.
