Ono day in tho snriuK of 1875, when Thu Daily Graphic of Now Vorii was in tho full swing of its moteorio career, n modest looking young man called nt tho art department of tho paper, at its Park place, ofiieos, with a package of sketches, says the Philadelphia Times. Tho draw ings were loft for inspection, and tho artist, handing his address in Brooklyn to tho assistant of thu art editor, took his departure. Tho availability of tho work was manifest as soon as tho pack ag(j was opened, and a coimo series from tho lot was reproduced at onco for tho front pago. Thoir appearance made quito a flatter iu the cockloft of tho art stall, for talent capable of furnishing good comics iu pen and ink iu those days was a scarco and costly article, Tho pago was signed "fj."aud that was all tho staff know about it until there was a general shoving about of work desks to make room "Jor Mr. Sigsbeo. ' But JJr. Sigsbeo did not materialize uor did tho supply of his wonderfully funuy drawings continue. It boeunio known that the art editor had duly uutified Mr. Sigsbeo that bis skotches were accepted and that ho would 1 given a place upon tho art staff at once. Would Mr. Sigsbee please befiu hand on Monday morning? Bun tho week rolled by and thcro was no Mr. Higsbeo. Tho art editor was un speakably astonished, llo then wroto still more urgently to tho coy, but de sirable artist, and this time ho got an an swer: "Lieutenant Commander Charles' D. Sigiibee, U. S. N., sends his compli ments and bogs to say that as ho is at present iu command of a government ship ho cannot accept the position so kindly offered." Japanese Love of the Beautiful. In tho principal room of every Jap anese housa built by rule there is a slightly raised platform sometimes so arranged that it can bo entirely inclos ed. This dais is tho "sacred" niche" whoro tho mikado would sit should ho ever enter tho house. It is still tho rule there that tho subject must not look down upon tho mikado. In tho days, not very long past, when it was unlaw ful even to look upon his face, ho would havo sat entirely shut oil from view, and his food would have been served through a sido opening so placed as to proveut a sight of his sacred counte nance. Tho royal inelosuro is looked upon as an altar. With it tho whole house must be iu keeping, and it in here that souiu grouping of flowers or leaves, some beautiful work of art, is always to bo seen. The spot is itself a sample of excellent work, and hero tho littlo children learn from infancy to re vere and love tho Leautiful and the good iu nature, and in art.

A TRAIN ANNULLED. "February ISth," said Train Dis- patcher Moore as he wrote the dato in tho blank space at tho top of his train sheet. "I shan't forget that date very coon. " "Whv not? Aro yon a believer in mysterious things happening in con neetion with the figure 13?" asked Hay den, tho "third trick" man, who bad just come iu at midnight to relieve the "sppond trick" dispatcher and take chari.'o of tho trains on the road. "No, not particularly; but dates sometimes recall events. No, there's no story, at least not now." Then, after writing out a brief transfer and watch ing his relief sign it, Moore put on his coat aud hat and started to go. At the door he turned to say: "There arejio extras. Nos. 10 and 13 are annulled. No coal at McHeury for tho north, so wo decided not to run a 13 today. Good uightl" Tlio footsteps o'i tho stairs died away, and tho man iu charge looked over the nicely kept train sheet of the day pre' vious with a critical eye.' The new train sheet just dated was immaculate save for the word "annulled " written iu tho space resorvod for freight trains 16 and 13. After carefully examining the posi tion of trains aud "putting out" a few orders everything was iu such good running shapo that Hayden had a long period of quiet. Ho filled aud lighted a well seasoned brier wood and sat smok ing meditatively. A train reported "by" some way station now and then was all that broke the silence of tho night. The click of the siugle sounder fell musically on the ear of the lonely man. But ho was not alone. Ho did not feel isolated when ho know that out on that lino were 25 wide awake men iu instant reach and a dozen trains all within his immediato touch. Tho dis patcher looked up expectantly as he heard tho operator at Muldrow's Moun tain call. It was probably the same old question : "Is 13 running tonight?" He opeued his key and answered the call from tho mountain station. "There's something comiug up tho hill from tho north," ticked out tho sounder. A glance at tlio train sheet showed tho dispatcher that thero was not a train within 25 miles of Muldrow's Mountain. "You're off on that," said ho, smil ing at tlio thought of a joke on Opera tor Kemp mistaking the full moon for a headlight or an early morning saw mill whistlo for that of a locomotive "There's Homing coming eoBtf), aud No. 2a is at Cordelia Junctifju." "No, I heard them coming out of the tunnel and can see the headlight now," said tho man at the monntaiu. "Hold them," was the lacouio order from tho dispatcher. Tho operator at Muldrow's Mountain rushed to the door. A glance showed him that his signal lamp on the top of tho station was burning brightly, its red orb turned toward thdo approaching train and plainly visiblo a quarter of a milo to tho north. When ho reached the front of tho ofiice, tho engino of tho train was almost abreast of him. Ho saw a dull, smoke hedimnied headlight and noted that the engine was clouded in steam, as if the cylinder cocks were open, and tho wot, vapory cloud hung uuout tlio Huge black boiler aud shroud ed tho cab so that tho eugiueer and fire man wero not visiblo. Tho operator saw iu the cab a bright red spot iu thu side of tho little lamp over the steam gauge. It was tho only thing plainly visiblo through the mist. Kemp saw that it was h "light train" nud eugiue and a cabooso. He kuew that they were not going to stop, as the train was then running fully 18 miles an hour. Tho next instant the cabooso was op posite him, tho palo green sido lights gleaming Lalefully through tho fug. Beforo Operator Kemp had recovered from his astonishment tho train hurl passed tho station and was beyond thn rangoof his vision. A minute later ho had communicated to the rliurmrc),,.,. What bad happened, and theu ho sat and listened to tho sharp suappiug of the sounder while the man iu authority gave an order to Cordelia Junction to hold No. 22 for an "extra south, en gino unknown, " and sent instructions to havo tho train cot 111 Oil t lin ciflri track and wait. At Cordelia Junction the toleernnhpv had heard all that had passed between Muldrow's and tho dispatcher's ofiice, and after ho had delivered tho orders to tho crew of No. 22 ho stepped outside to tako a look at his signal lamp. If tho man at Muldrow's had kfc bin sic. mil go out and a train got by there, he didn't proposo to have it occur at his station. Then, as a mariner casts an an chor to windward, he returned to tho oflieo and trimmed aud lighted a rod lantern. No. 23 was "in to clear" away down on thu , uud tho operator at Cor delia was alone. An hour passed, aud lie heard nothing of tho extra fm, n, north. Another hour was nearly gono when ho heard tho roar of an approach ing train, then four short blasts of No. 22's whistlo as a peremptory demand for "signals," but ho heard no reply to the call. Then the extra was on Mm. Hu saw they were running too fast to stop at his station; he noted that they had not whistled for tho railroad cross ing and wero taking no notice of his station signal. Picking up his red lamp, ho swung it across tho track in front of tho engino. The' train did not slacken its pace, but bore steadily on. Tho man saw the smoked headlight saw thero was no number displayed there iu ao cordanco with tho strictest of rules. In an instant more tho wild train had pass ed Cordelia Junction regardless of all signals, and the stupefied oporator heard it whistling a ' county road crossing a quarter of a milo to tho south of him. Thirty minutes later Nate Anderson, tho watchman at Big Cliffs bridge, was preparing his bunk for a two hours' nap before his relief should como. Sud denly ho stopped aud listened. Surely that rumblina was a train from tho nnru, a moment later he heard hoarse whistle, aud, taking up his flag and lantern, the watchman went out to flag the train over. As be reached tho platform he saw dimly through the fog a headlight coming on tho bridge 200 yards away. Raising bis white light to "rlaa the train across," Anderson was lookine at the approaching train when suddenly the headlight gave a great lurch, ho saw tho gleam of two green lamns. and then all disappeared., Au instant later he heard a frightful crash of broken timbers, tbe hiss of escapin sfpnni aud cries drowned out by borri hie gurgling sounds -aud tbe rushing of wrnrwrs son ffiet below the bridge. Ten minutes later he had aroused the see nana, and thev all went to the hridee, together. Climbing down the framework of the bridge to the creek, no signs of distum ance or disaster could be found. There was nothing unusrjal about the little ereek. The shallow bottom was piaimy visible when the men swung their lan terns down to peer into its clear waters. nor was there a bolt or a rivet displaced about the great new steel strneture. . When Superintendent Belford of the southern division came to his office the next morning, there was the usual stack of correspondence awaiting him. Hi clerk had it all opened and nicely sort ed, as was his custom. There were three telegraphio reports that claimed the croat man's attention at pnee. All three bore on the same subject, and an exasperating subject it was. The first message was from the dispatcher's office aud was to the effect that the operator at Muldrow's Mountain had reported a train coniina south at 3:10 a. m., when the train sheet showed that there wai no train on the road within miles of him, No. 13 having been annulled and no extras running. The report further stated that the operator had insisted that au engine and cabooso had disro garded his red signal aud passed south at 3:13 a. m., aud that no amount of arguing would make tho man change bis statement. Attached to this was a second tele graphio report over tho chief train dis patnber's initials, stating that No. 22 had been held at Cordelia Junction to await the wild engine reported as "by Muldrow's Mountain at 3:13;" that 2 was delayed 1 hour and 85 minutes thereby. This account ended with the following : "Litchfield operator has seen nothing of tho wild eugiue, and Leroy's gravel train ran from Cordelia Junction to Litchfield and reports 'no train or engine between these poiuK ' " Tho second report was .mi tho con ductor of tho fast freight, No. 22, nud briefly stated that they were delayed 1 hour and 35 minutes at Cordelia June tion waiting for au extra, light engine and cabooso, which passed tho Junction south at 4 :4a without whistling sig mils. The report of tho station agent at Cordelia Junction said: "Extra engine and cabooso south by 4 :45. Disregarded station signal aud failed to whistlo rail road crossing." The superiuteudent read these twice over carefully. Then ho read tho morn ing report from the transportation do partment, nud ha noted that there wero "no extra trains, '' aud that "drains .No. 13 aud 10 were annulled." Thi3, then, was the question that surg ed through the superintendent's brain and threat'-ued to overwhelm him: "What was tho light engiue? Whence came it and whither had it gone?" Turning to his clerk, Belford said, Havo the crew of No. 22 come to my office as soon as they get iu." Theu ha wroto out soveral telegrams that were to sot tho machinery iu motion for an immediato investigation. For trains tc run over his division without orders and disregarding signals was a serious matter an alarming matter, in fact. A full statement from tho night oper ators at Muldrow's Mouutain and Cor delia Junction aud a talk with the crow of 22 would probably clear it up. Tbe transportation department knew nothing moro than tho report by wi.e had shown. Tho sole representative of tho motive power department who could throw any light on the case was the en gineer of No, 22. None of 22's crew was too well pleas ed at the peremptory summons to ap pear "on the carpet." They were tired, sleepy and worn out, and it is not a pleasant thing to bo called np before the high tribunal of railroad life with out knowing what charges aro pending. An hour later found the train crew, Master of Transportation Rainsford and Superintendent of Motive Power Small assembled iii tho superintendent's office. The two lattor were at desks provided for them, and the investigation had be gun. The evidence of the fireman and brakoman was of no value, as they were insido when the wild engine passod aud saw nothing of it. Conductor Blair'., statement was commonplace enough. Ho was held for orders at Cordelia Junction and got a "hold order" for an extra south, number of engiue not given. The extra had delayed them and passed at 4:45. They were on the "Y" waiting, and the switch was set for the main line. This closed his statement, and he was about to leavo when the su perintendent said: "Wait a minute, Blair; one more question. Was there any number on the caboose or anything you could identify it by?" "There wasn't any number I could eoe, but, come to think of it, there wasn't any cupola on it. The side lights were burning bright. I didn't see tho headlight of tho engine." The engineer's story was practically the samo. They were too far down tho "Y" from the main track to Bee it plainly, but ho thought the headlight was "burning up, "an expression which means that tbe wick was turned too high and the lamp smoking, so that the tefioctor was dull, the glass blurred aud tho headlight reudored practically of tio value. Ho could not for this reason toll whether there was a number on the headlight or not. When asketTauto any peculiarities about tho eugine, he said thoughtfully: "She seomed to be foam-. ing or soiuothing. She wasn't popping off, but she had a mighty lot of steam about her, as if she had a leaky steam chest. They didn't whistle signals, aud x punea my whistle four times, but got no answer, and thoy didn't stop. About the engine. I did siraigiio snot, extension front engine, but she had the old style diamond stack. I thought it might he one of tho old ones run over to tlio shops or to a work train." This closed the hearing, aud when the crow were gone tho officials began to confer. Tho two department repre sentatives admitted that they were all S sea. A boy brought in a bunch of telegrams at this moment. Among thein were elaborated statements from the two night operators who bad seen tho light train, but nothing of particular value was added. That ended tho evi dence. Nothing more could be gained from any point. Tho three officials made a recapitulation of the reports and statements, but they didn't seom to ar rive at any conclusion. No engmo aud caboose had left Termini, au engine and cabooso had passed Muldrow s i n o..,i rtnrrlpliii Jnuctiou. and that IUIU nuv waa alt ..rr.n inner Imvn vnu been on this road:" asked Belford, turning sudden ly to the superintendent of motive pow "Eiohtvears this summer," replied Cmoll "When wero the straight shot stack, extension front engines put on mis ai vision?" "We cot the first one six years ago o,q i,ro rflnlnned the old ones each vear. until there are but two left. One, the 70, is on tho gravel tram, 2u0 miles frtm hnrn. ft tin the other has boon in the shop for a month and has no pony trucks under her." Then addressing himself to Rains ford ho asked, "When was it wo adopt ed the cupola caboose?" "Nine years ago, iu 18S3," said the master of transportation after a mo ment's thought. Then after a few moment's consulta tion the heads of the respective depart ments returned to their offices, nud the high official sat looking out of his win dow, away across the river, far out over the Ohio falls, where the clear hluo wa ters were curling gracefully down to be churned into lacy foam on the rocks bo low. But he was not thinking of tho water or the rocks. Superintendent Belford roused him self. Ho was not a dreamer, though he had wasted a whole hour. It was noon, tho screaming whistles told him, and what he had expected to clear np in au hour be had spent half a nay over, aim it had now deepened into a positive mystery. "There is but one more man to see Ho may be able to clear this up some way, " mused tho great man. "I thought ho would be here by this time." Tho door opened at this moment, and Super iuteudent Belford arose and, holding out his baud, 6aid cordially: "Good morning, Mr. Moore. I sent for yon to seo if you could help us to clear up a matter of a wild engine on our divi siou last night." Dispatcher Moore bowed gravely aud took tho chair tbo superiuteudent had motioned him to. "Hero are the correspondence and all the memoranda we have gathered. The chief dispatcher says you have been on tho road longer than any of us and thinks you can make something out of this." "I will seo what I can find," said tho dispatcher briefly. Belford returned to the window and left tlie man looking over the papers, Belford had met tho dispatcher but onco previous to this, but ho had often heard him spoken of ns a man of great capacity and an extensive knowledge of railroad affairs. As he looked at him now be noticed that Moore was a yonug tnan, rrerhaps 35 withIoar blue eyes, a strong, square jaw, a drooping blond mustache and a pleasant but grave face, His hair was slightly gray at the sides, and taken altogether Moore was a dis tinguished looking man. Belford won dered why this capable man had re fused promotion, preferring to remain a second trick dispatcher, a positiou he had now held for 14 years. Thirty minutes passed before Moore shoved back the papers ho had been carefully reading, aud leauiug back in his chair looked steadily at the ceiling for full two minutes. wen, jur. juooro, do yon irnow what that wild engine was?" No, sir, I do not," was tho prompt reply. Have you any theory?" as'.sed Bel ford, with a perplexed look. "Yes," answered Moore, after a nio ment's deep thought. "Get tho accident report of Feb. 13, 18 79, and see what it says." Without a word the superintendent turned to tho perfectly arranged file case, and in a iniuuto took down a big book with "1879" in gilt figures on the back. Laying the book on the desk, they turned to tho dato mentioned aud read: Fbbiutahy 13, 1870.

"Accidents will happou," and in spite of tho severe teaching that they happen only because of carelessness our sympathies go out to the victims thereof. Iu no department of tho house are ac cidents so certain and so doplorablons in tbo kitchen. We cannot wonder that cooks aro so often cross. Tho mistress gives her orders lata or titers 'them at the last moment, tho Iradespeoplo are late in delivering; tho Uro is smoky, cto., with tho resu t that flurry and a certain amount of loss of temper on all sides end iu numerous small accideuts that still further jar the family peace. But for most of these untimely events some sort of remedy is possible, and let us bogiu with cooking accidents to soo what may he done. Your potatoes may be overboiled till they are broken and watery. Remedy Drain off all water possible. Put them, still in the saucepan without the lid, over the fire antl stir about well with a wooden spoon till tho water ha. evaporated aud they have becomo floury. Then see there are no lumps left; add salt, pepper, a uice lump of butter or dripping and a little milk. Mix aud heat well aud serve ns mashed potatoes. Or it may bo that the boiled fish has suffered the same fate. Remedy Quickly remove skin and bones, keeping the flesh in as largo flakes as possiblo. Make an egg sauce precisely as yon intended to do for tho boiled lish. IJct tho flakes into this and heat, but do not stir. Arrange toast on a dish, spriuklo with chopped parsley, pour in tho lish aud servo as a fricassee or as cusk a la creme, the latter being browned iu tho oven. Custards curdle from a moment's too long contact with tho fire. Remedy To each pint of milk used in tho custard allow twoteaspooufulsof cornstarch, mix with a littlo cold milk and strain the curdled custard into it. Stir over tho Are and lot it boil; then add a boateu egg, sugar and flavoring to taste and takeoff tho firo at unco. Serve as originally intendod. Mayonnaise sauce often insists upon curdling. No one can more than guess why. When it happens, it is generally because tho ingredients were not cold enough or tho oil was added too fast. Remedy Tako a fresh cold egg, chill the old sauce, then add it drop by drop to the yolk of the fresh egg. Stir cue way all tho time. White sauce or soup may bo slightly discolored by a soiled pan cr spoon or by tho burning of tho flour used. Remedy 'leru it into n brown sauco by nddiug a littlo caramel or into n green ono by using spinach juice, or you might add raw yolks of eggs until it is changed to a golden yellow. When brown soups and sauces re palo and pasty looking, add moro brown ed flour stirred smooth iu wuter cr caramel. Sauces are sometimes thin and "run ny because tbo proportions nave been mistaken, or they are too thick for the same reason. Remedy For thin sauces add extra flour mixed thin with milk or water. Add to tho sauce aud bring to a boil. For thick sauce add milk, littlo by lit tle, until the sauoe is of tho right con sistency, When jelly or custard is turned from a mold, it sometimes breaks. Remedy Break into small bits, heap high in a gk.ss dish aud pour around it whipped cream, with a border of lady fingers dipped in orange wine. If a molded pudding is broken by sticking to the mold, repair if possible tbe broken bit aud cover with a layci of white of eggs beaten to a snow and sweetened aud flavored. .If it is too far gone for this, break it into bits cover with tho meriuguo and brown in the oven. Decorate this mass by a border of currant jelly. If pastry is burned, grate off the black ened crust, touch lightly with milk aud white of egg, sprinkle with sugar and brown again. When oroqnette mixtures are too wet to mold and shapo, put in more chopped meat or fish, or in a desperate case finely pounded bread crumbs. When jelly is cloudy and clear soup is not clear, pour eithor one into a clean pan scrupulously clean it must be tako the whites aud sbells of two eggs, break the latter and beat into the for mer. Throw these into tho pan and let all boil up together. Then cover, set to ono side for five minutes and strain. Philadelphia Ledger. Language of Flags. To "strike the flag" is to lower the national oolors in token of submission. ITags are used as the symbol of rank and command, says The School Jour nal, the officers using them being called flag officers. Such flags are square to aiscingnisn tnem from other banners. A "flag of truce" is a whito flag dis played to an euemy to indicate a desire ror a parley or consultation. The white flag is the sign of peace v.i u uuiuo jjiu wes irom DOtn sides often go out to tho field to rescuojbe wouuuea or oury tlie dead under tho protection of a white flag. The red flag is a sign of defiance and is often used by revolutionists. Iu our service it is tho mark of danger and hiiows a vessel to be receiving or dis charging her powder.
