A Ludicrous Frnctlro In Which Jinny Ocean Traveler arc Compelled to Take Fart. A Cambridgo undergraduate, now on his,'way to thocapo in a trading vessel, sands' thoiollowing interesting commu nication to the Pall Mall Gazette: Ono of tho oldest customs of the sea lately came under" 'iAynotice, and in such a way as I amnot likely to forget. As Hciinl offer rtEfv l rjnlnnl tnn wn wnrn seated in tho slloon enjo ing our gamo of cribbajre, vw 11 a blast tram mo log eh the de.td, put an end "horn, fit to awl to our cards. Hurriedly wo mado for tho deck, wbefrts a sight never to bo for gotten met our eyes. The evening was dark and cloudy, tho moon entirely hid den, but the deck was brilliantly illu minated with blue lights. From tho fore castle was issuing a procession that bdfllcs description. First walked Father Neptune himself, leading on his arm hfa voung and beautiful wife, Ainphtritj. Neptuno was dressed in long, white flowing robes that is, .1 nightshirt; around his head waved his gray looks, blowing beforo tho wind in every direc-. tion; his beard reached bclpw his waist; on his head ho wore a miter of such" tremendous size as to drive any bishop' yt'M with envy; in his hand ho boro his trident. His wife's dress was evidently on tlfe, plan of "beauty unadorned," for soma red paint, a small red flag,, and a pair of red bathing-drawers constituted her costume. Her llacn hair in curly masses reached ker knees. Following this august couple walked tho hero of ,tho evening the barber. Dressed all in white, wearing' a hat tho shano of a dice-box-, half white, half black, with curly white hair and whiskers, ho was sublimo; but the sublime changed into tho awful when ono pcrccneil that ho carried in his hands instruments of tor ture rivaling ill their latent cruelty; even thoso of tho Inquisition. Imagino stand ing and gazing upon a bucket of Hour and water mixed to about tho thickness of liquid glue, of which you know jou will receive a large share on your head. Recover, if you can, from that bight, arid look again. In his other hahd ho holds a razor of such magnitude that it would . not bo ill amiss for felling trees, and think that soon that edge of rough, rusty iron will bo plowing its meander ing course over your innocent jaws. Following tills torturer camo two policemen armed with cudgels and dark lanterns. Behind them crowded the crow. In spite of the awful solemnity of the scene, ono could not but admiio tho dark, cloudy sky, tho sea a blaze of phosphorescence, tho flickering summer lifi'htnine'. tho CTOiminfr Of tho actors. 'Halting before the after deck, Neptune, in a louu voice, witn kucuxiuj disre gard asfiereT"e tfisHTfwftnld3 this ship they 'avo not yet crossed tho loine, and bin baptoized, my sons, I ham 'ero to seo them done so." Evidently Nep tune's intercourse with British sailors has been to tho disadvantage of his elo quence. Tho sailors, at tho finish of Neptune's speech, cheered loudly, whilo from their midst stepped tho two brawny police men,, ono of whom was a nigger from Demerara, and seized upon T. Mean while tho torturer was not idle. Ho had seated himself upon a low stool, with his bucket beforo him, in his left hand a brush like a housemaid's broom, whilo with his right ho was sharpening his razor on the companion-ladder raiPmgs. Alas for poor T. Ho stood smiling be foro his executioner, wiio, evidently thinking tho occasion far too solemn to smile at, put an end to his innocent merriment by inserting as much as ho possibly could of his mixture into his mouth. Whilo he was engaged in choking and spitting out what ho could of tho concoction, Tiis head was being covered to such an extent as to render his features quite indistinguishable. Then that awful razor camo into use, its broad, rusty edge scraping away the dough liko a plow in a clay soil. But how difficult it is to take tho dough out of one's eyes and mouth with a razor? uiuuu inruu met UI1g ouu can iiui im agine till one has tried! His Satanic majesty, I mean the barber, having scraped off as much as pleased Ins fancy, the two policemen came to tho foro again, armed with buckets of cold water, which, utterly regardless of what part of the victim's body received the water, they threw in quick succession over him. I was tho next victim, and went through the same tcrriblo routine; but at last it was all over, and I issued from the cold-water euro quite ready to seo tho fun in treating tho others to their dose. It was a novel experience, and ono not likely to bo forgotten. Then followed tho others who had not crossed the lino, somo half-dozen of them, but two were missing. Tho police wero soon after them, but it was an hour be foro the first was found, Ijing under neath tho boilers in about the temper ature of tho place I had wKhed the bar ber in when I was being sha ed. All this ho endured rather than faco his shaving, or, I should say, shaving his face, lie was quickly dragged upon the scene, and paid tho penalty of his fear by receiving a double dose. Soon after tins tho other, a boy, was found concealed in a sail in tho rigging; he, too, got what he deserved for trj ing to escape justice. After all wero baptized, wo had somo songs and dances, the bar ber being especially good at tho latter, and giving us somo excellent clog-dances and breakdowns. Poor Neptuno had tcrriblo trouble with his wife, who, sud denly discovering herself among a lot of sailors, becamo "skittish" naturally, what woman would not? Tho songs and dancing finished, grog handed all round, anil with three cheers for us from the cre.w, wo retired to our cabins miiKU auv luu&swu uuiuur iuiu.111 11 is grave, gave' ufte'ran'oe" "Earing that somo of the crow of this' ship Is such as ro pni on ury cioines, ana to tear out handfuls of hair in endeavoring to rid our heads of donghr tho line. "And so we crossed . George Sheridan's Joke. , Gen. George H. Sheridan, "of Louisi ana," lives now at tho Union Squaro hotel and is coming to be known as a Union Squaro notability. Ho has had a checkered political career, but he has had a good living through it all, evi dently, for ho has grown stouter and stouter with each succeeding year, until his short figure now carries upward of 250 pounds of flesh. As a stump speaker ho has been andstilHs in great demand. His talks are a mixture' of witty stories and eloquence which is taking with the people. A politician of Ohio related to mo yesterday an incident of ono of Sheridan's engagements which had a ludicrous ending. Sheridan was posted tor a speech, in a manufacturing town in northern Ohio. It was an off year, and tho Democrats were expecting to .cany the county through Republican in- UUicrence anil ttio labor vote. -They didn't want Sheridan to make a speech for fear ho would rouse up all the Repub licans, but how to keep him away was a problem. They hit upon' a plan'at last, and wlten Sheridan" arrived ho was surprised to moet a cordial reception ft 0111 bcvcral Democratic acquaintances who pressed him with invitations to go out and "smile.-" Ho- filially went out with them and was conducted to a saloon whero ho found a number of other choice spirits, but all Democrats. They began to ply him with invitations to drink, and it soon pobped into his head that they had. a scheme to make him drunk and let the meeting bo a failuro because of his uon-attQndance. When ho became satisfied that this was their gamo ho went in for as much fun as anyone. It was 2 o'clockwhen they went into the saloon. At half-past 7 )m walked out with a slightly unsteady step, but with a perfect control of his motions, while every other man of tho crowd was under the table. He went to tho hall where ho was to speak and de livered ono of tho finest efforts of .his life, not forgetting to tell tho story of how tho enemy had tried to trip him up. Tho county rang with his speech for a week, and was carried for the Republi cans. iV. Y. Tribune. Actresses and Their Appctltet. "There are few actresses," says Sam uel Stockvis in tho Cook, "who do not appreciate a good-dinner or know how to select one. Adelaide Ncilsou was a devotco of gourmandism; ato often and LhuVs, was feted, dined, and wined on Eevory hand, loved nothing better than (to be-invitcu out socially, ami actually died from feeding too much. Cham pagne was her favorite wino. Patti 1st a light cater all singers arc but goes fa for porter and Burgundy with a will. The fact that Mmiuc. Scalchi refused, to sing last season and compelled a "change of bill" on the ground that she had eaten too lato will not soon bo for gotten by the chronicler of the capric ious records of prima donnas. Lillian Russell is very fond of salads, and will not eat a dinner irTwhich they do not occupy a prominent position. Clara Louiso Kellogg's fondness for pork and beans is thought by somo to bo her only fault. Mrs. Langtry is very fohd of Blue Points on the half-shell, and is very particular about tho cooking of Ker viands. Tho special weakness of tho English beauty is a fondness for brandy and soda, with a distinct underlying tendency toward beer. Selina Dolaro, liko most English women of the stage, has fallen into tho habit of taking her tea at 5 o'clock, whether she has an en gagement or not. Marie Prcscott keeps house in a flat, has a German cook, knows how to prepare a dainty meal herself, and has an able assistant in her husband. Roso Coglan doesn't liko a heavy wine liko sherry if slio is going to play, and usually indulges in cham pagne instead. Sho is a 6 o'clock diner, feeds well, and when chicken is on tho board calls for the white meat Ellen Terry, whilo on tho road, always has her mcals scrve( in hcr roollli as do Mre Langtry and Margaret Mather. Tho latter young lady does not dine out much. Miss Mather always takes an iced lemonade befc re going on in tho balcony scene of "Romeo and Juliet." Nothing that Mile. Sarah Bernhardt has ever eaten has had a tendency to make her grow stouter, The great French tragedienne always takes a glass of old cognac beforo going on the stage, dines in the afternoon, and take3 a supper af ter tho performance. Mmc. Desclee, tho renowned French actress, lived for tho last year of her existence, when cancer was drawing her inevitably to her grave, entirely upon grapes and milk. Mme. Judic is said to bo a very good feeder, and hcr embonpoint gives no denial of tho statement. Mile. Aimco is highly appreciative of tho pleasures of tho table, but of lato years, conscious of her in creasing btoutness, seeks to temper ap petite with judgment When in tho City sho always dines at a favorite table d'hoto inTwenty-seventh street. Mine. Rhea 1 .!' has been fctcdalmost enough to undermine her constitution, but keeps up bravely. Mine. Janish loves a good meal and never fails to get ono when the selection of the dishes is left to her self, when sho takes good care to re member tho solidly good things of fader land." It may interest the fair wearers of seal sacimes to know how many big, round, liquid eyes havo been shut by tho cruel lanco of commerce in tho North Atlantic this year. Of tho Dundee fleet of steam ers soven went to Newfoundland and captured 73,890 seals, as against 34,329 last year. Four ships went to Greenland and slaughtered 10,760, as against 17,119 last year.
