OOKK0-CKH0000-000-0-aOH DIFFICULT TO STEER A SHIP. Man at the Helm Work with the Cur j taint Tightly Drawn. The work of steering a great ship, even with the aid of all the machinery, .Is much more delicate than one would Imagine. The larger and faster the iBhli the greater Is the difficulty. It Is not enoii'l! to bold the wheel in the same position to keep the ship on her jcourse, for the wind and waves and the currents of the ocean tend con stantly to i:nock the ship off her course. Tha great wall' of steel for the hull rr.ay be 700 feet long and 60 ' feet high offers a broad target for the wind and waves, j The art of steering is to humor the :shlp to theso forces and when she Is deflected to bring her back quickly to her course. If you could watch the binnacle, especially in bad weather, .you wou'd sre the needle of the com- !lass constantly shifting from Fide to side, which means that the great steel prow Is not going forward In a perfectly straight line. , : The most astonishing thing about the bridge H to find the wheelbouse with all its curtains tightly drawn, as often happens, and the man at the helm eteeiing the boat without see ing ahead at all. At night or even by day, if the light of the binnacle 1s confusing, the wheelbouse is often completely shut in. The man at the .wheel, it Is explained, does not need to look ahead. The lookout high up in the "crow's nest" and the officer on watch on the bridge will keep him informed If any object is sighted. The duty of the man at tbe wheel , is to .keep the ship on her course. Through out his watch of four hours he must keep his eyes on the compass and no where else. St. Nicholas. ALL CATS GIVEN SALUTE. j " iB!ll Nye's" "Red State." Willia-.n Thtfoot Vlsscher of the Bam Hons'xn company told some in teresting stores of Bill Nye, of whom he was n.n '. ntlmate friend, at the Pleci;: cii Sunday night, says the New Y. r-'s PresB. "I x.Li id Lookout Mountain with Bill nt one time," he said, "gazing over the varrlous states the guide de clared could be seen from there. "This,", said the guide, "is Ken tucky. There Is Tennessee, and over yonder, if you look good, you can see North Carolina." '"What?" interrupted Nye; 'North Carolina? Why, man, that can't be North Carolina. That state is pur ple and North Carolina Is pink.' He took a small nap from his pocket and pointed out North Carolina, which sure enough was printed pink. 1 'It has faded a little,' Nye added; 'it used to be red tho color Visscher and I painted it.' " 1 Tip in Advance. ' A gentleman, who was in the habit of dining roqu?arly at a certain res taurant, said to the darky waiter: "Eraetun, instead of tipping yon every day, Tm going- to give yon your tip in a lump sum at the end of the month." "Dat's t!l r'ght, eah," replied the darky; ''but I wondah if yon would mind pay in' me In advance?" , "Well, it's rather a strange re quest," remark 3d the patron. "How ever, here's a five-dollar bill for yon. I suppose you tire In want of the mon ey, or is it thaton dlsthrust mer" ' "Oh, no. sah," smiled 'Rastus, slip ping the bill in his pocket,. "only I'se leaving "'hyer to-day, sah.' People's Home Jourcsl.. Cced Little Boy.

In Poona, at the government honse for more than a quarter of a century, every cat which passed out of the front door at dark was saluted by the sentry, who presented arms to the ter rified pussy. It seems that In 183S Sir Robert Grant, governor of Bombay, died In the government house, Poona, and on the evening of the day of his death a cat was seen to leave the house by the front door and to wajk up and down a particular path precisely as the late governor had been used to do after sunset. A Hindu sentry observed and re ported this to the sepoys of his faith. and they laid the matter before a priest, who explained to them the mys tery of the dogma of the transmigra tion of souls. "In this cat," he said, "was reincar nated the soul of the deceased Gov. Grant, and It should, therefore, be treated with the military honors due to his excellency." As, however, the Original sentry could not identify .the particular cat he had seen on w evening of the day of Sir Robert's death, it was decided that every catawhlch uassed out of the main entrance after dark should be saluted as the avatar of his excellen cy. Thus,, for over a quarter of a cen tury, every cat that passed out after sunset had military honors paid to it, not by Hindu sentinels only, but such Is the infection of a superstition by Mahommetan, native Christian and even Jewish soldiers. South China PoaL, ( -j NOT THE FATTED CALF. This Is a Different Parable But It Brought Desired Results. A good story is told of a couple of farmers living a few miles apart One day one called on the other, happen ing around at dinner time. The per son called upon, by the way, was rather a penurious old fellow. He sat at the table enjoying his dinner. The visitor drew toward the table, expecting the old farmer to invite him to dine. The old farmer kept on eating. "What's the news up your way, neighbor? No news, eh?" - Presently a thought struck the vis itor. "Well, yes, friend ; I did hear of one item of news worth mention ing." . . "Ha! what Is it?" ' "Neighbor John has a cow that has five calves." "Is that so? Good gracious! What ip thunder does the fifth calf do when the others are feeding?" "Why, he stands and looks on, just as I do, like a dumb fool." "Mary, put on another plate," drawled the farmer, as he caught the point. Judge's Magazine of Fun. Never Too Late to Learn. It is strange that not one person In a thousand knows how to help a man on with his coat or a lady with her jacket They ail make the mistake of holding the garment too high, espe cially the last sleeve. They Aft it so that a man nearly dislocates , his arm reaching for it The more fu tllely he grabs and claws and lurches for It the higher they hold it, until the wretched victim would have to get on a pair of stilts to find the arm hole.. v The proper way? Why. hold the coat so that the armholes are as low down as the man's waist taking care to keep the skirt of the garment off the floor, of course. If there Is any struggle to find the last armhole, drop It still lower; .never raise It vDrop it until his hand slips Into it natvally. mmm i SUITS For Men, Boys and Youths.
