SM CAPTAIN'S PAY.
ME MASTER OF A BIG OCEAN STEAM ER IS NOT A PLUTOCRAT. rything Considered He 1 Poorly Paid. ylso Storli'i Printed Low Wage. Given Other Officers For Onerous Duties Pur- : t, Kr and Burgeon. It is tbe general impression among loso who do not know that the duties ad responsibilities of tho average skip tr of a regular liner are as many and serous as the successful bank president lid that in addition bis salary is just ' t large. Tbe responsibility of the one lM about as great as the other, but when It comes to duties the sea dog has as rule much more to bear, while, unlike the bank president, his salary is final 1 as his duties are large. It may mrprise some of the regular transat Untie travelers to learn that their beau , iJeal of a sea captain who in faultless tOlrl lace goes about the deck luughjng end chatting with the tourists, patting tie half fare tots on tbe back and i jffing bis cap to tbe rug clad occupants . fit an easy steamer chair between the tine that ho spends in bis berth, in the cbartroom or on tbe bridge, gets little "' more money a mouth than the detective sergeant or the average steamboat cap tain. In many instances Air. Gold Lace ' seta less. i Ono of the most successful lines rnn- ,-t'PB between this port and Europe pays , iJt commodoro, who has been over 20 Xtars in this particular service, 30 a - month, or about $175. This is about $40 week. Tbe other captains in this Hue ' ate paid tho equivalent of $125 for iiO days' labor. Any number of matter of no fact stories have been printed with tfco object of showing that the com tnaudcrs of tbe great liners received in omo cases sums ranging from $7,000 ? to 812,000 per year. But such talk is idle. There is not a single captain on - the cccau who enjoys such an inccme. That many of them deserve to is cuoth r natter entirely. " In an argument that master mariners re well paid the point is advanced that tho officers are fed while at sea and fven alongside the wharf with tho best that the market affords and at tbe ex Itecnso of tho steamship company. Yet $0 per cent of these well fed gold lnces ' are married and have big families that demand food, clothes and Thome either 'here or abroad, whether or not tho ship lis in port. This establishment costs as fniuch wbilo tbe master mariner is on the bosom of old Neptune as it does when he is playing dry cob at home for a short period. His going or coming adds or deducts little from tbo general cost. There aro few pursers on the Atlantic who command a higher monthly salary than 10. Tbcy must have years of ex- perience, a host of friends and bo "top ' sawyers," as they say at sea, to com mand even this iiguro. Unlike tbo ! stewards, and, in tho majority of canes, ; the ships' surgeons, the purser is sel dom made tho recipient of a generous Itit). jnououv seems aoio to exniuin wny 1 it is so, unless it be that tbe purser, handling all tbe money of tho voyage, which includes extra passage money, I the receipts from the smoker made through tbe chief steward, tho wine bills from tbo tables, all amounting to a pretty large figure, is recognized as tbe financial end of the floating hotel and so treated accordingly. The smoker and its many attachments are luxuries which tbo captain is not permitted to enjoy, or if permitted rare ly indulges in. Any skipper who would make himself a jolly good fellow in tbo smoker would loso tho confidence of those under bis caro as fast as a trout taking a May fly. Not that his appear f Bii( o there, would mako him any less tho jailor, but passengers for somo reason i 'only place for tho master of their ship -' is on tho bridge or in the cbartroom. And if they can picture hini on this 'bridL;oin oilskins and so'wester with ? tho wind and sleet and ico blustering around him so much tbo better to tho 1 perfection of their idea of the practical and capablo mariner. Tbo poorest paid man iu an official incapacity ou a great liner is probably tbo surgeon. Somo passengers have tbe i opinion that as the company pays tbo ship's doctor those using him on a trip ' f aro net supposed to give liuanuial recog nition to his altenton. It is true that ' uouu is obliged to, but ho should. Tho I demand of n doctor at sea is in nowise 'I difkreut from that demand on laud. Tho steamship companies give a passeu ger board, lodging and transportation at a cost that could not be equaled on any railroad of tbe earth, when distance, accommodation and attention are con sidered. The luxury of a doctor, while generally forced, is at the same timu an auxiliary of sea travel for which the company receives nothing, and wfiich, when free medicines aro included, as they invariably are, costs quite a good deal. Experienced ocean travelers sel dom forget tho surgeon when necessity makes them call for his attention dur ing a trip. But these experienced tour ists aro fow and far between. New York Mail and Express. Sienklewlci. Father Barabasz of Baltimore, who Visited his countryman, Henry Sieukie wicz, not long ago, says iu tho Balti more Sun that tbe Polish novelist is very simple in his manners and is rather silent when in society, but he is a good listener to a good story. He is of medi um size, rather dark and is inclined to baldness, with a hint of gray over tbe temples. Tho name is pronounced Chen-kay-veetch, with the accent on the sec ond syllable and the ch pronounced as in child. His home is now at Warsaw, though much of bis time is spent in traveling and in getting material for bis literary work. He has been married twice. Tbe death of his first wife oc curred when be was writing "Pan Michael," and its somber tone is traced back to that event. FAINTING. Kiinple Measures Tliat Prove Effective In a Case of Uynoope. Fainting, or syncope, is a temporary Iops of consciousness, occurring with enfeebled and retarded action of the heart, as manifested, by n slow and al most impereeptible pulse, extremo pal lor of the face, especially tbe lips, and a coldness and lividity of the hands and feet. Tho attack of unconsciousness is gen erally preceded by a feeling of slight nausea, a swimming before the eyes, noises iu tbo ears, a fnllnnwtnf the linnd and an indescribable feeling of "ail goneness, "of the extreme wretchedness of which no one can have any idea who has not experienced it in his own per son. The voices of those around gradually become indistinct, objects grow dim, the breathing is oppressed, and finally darkness closes iu, tho muscles relax, and the sufferer passes into that myste rious and awo inspiring state called un consciousness. This lasts for a variablo period and then tho mind gradually re sumes its supremacy, the patient coming again into possession of his suspended faculties, like one raised from tbe dead rather than like one aroused from slum ber. In its essence the act of fainting is merely a symptom of anusmia of the brain, with which is associated a great ly weakened action of the heart, both dependent upon somo usually disagree able impression from without, such as the sight of blood, an unpleasant or very powerful odor, u sudden fright, pain, oppressive heat of tho atmosphere, tbo receipt of bad news, less often a great and suddon joy, and tho like. Young women, people in delicate health, the nervous and sufferers from heart disease are moro prouo to syncope than others, yet fainting may occur in the strongest men from the effect of slight causes. Were it not so familiar a sight a per son in a faint would fill tbe bystanders with terror, so closely does tbe condi tion simulate death, but fortunately the state is ono usually of short duration. The patient should be placed flat on the back, with no pillow or support un der tbe head. Thoso not in immediate attendance should keep at a distance, and fresh air should be admitted freely. Tbo clothing should bo loosened about tho neck and tbe waist, the faco should be fauuod, and respiration should be stimulated by flippiug a few drops of cold water on the face aud chest. The bare chest and arms may also be slapped with a wet towel. Smelling salts may be held cautiously under the nose or a few grains of pepper blown into tho nostrils. Any ordinary swoon should quickly yield to those simple measures. Youth's Companion. COSTLY EXECUTIONS. Bills For Killing Criminals That Were Formerly Paid In llollaud. Edam, iu Holland, where tho Dutch ebceso conies from, has a museum of local antiquities, aud among the not least interesting of the exhibits aro tbo accounts of tbo municipal executioners during the eighteenth century, says the London Chronicle. Cue of these, fuuo tiouaries, by name Vogel, presents a de tailed bill dated Dec. 10, 1713, in which ho sots forth a claim for (i florins for one decapitation aud 3 florins each for a sword aud winding sheet, with 3 florins 14 cents for a cofiin for the decapitated ono. His charge for hanging a criminal was also 0 florins, with the further ad dition of 3 florins for "cutting down and impaling ditto." "Creaking a man on tho wheel" was a costlier luxury aud ran to i) florius, while for "supply ing nine uew lashes for scourge" the cbargo was 27 florius. On the whole, however, Mr. Vogel was a moderate niau in bis charges or the value of humau life went up a good deal in the uext 50 years, for iu the uo less circumstantial accounts of Johannes Ka, presented Aug. I, 1704, we have a charge of 12 florins for "going on board the Hans and preparing instruments of torture, " with a liko charge for "tor turing ono person. " Hut this must have been for the lesser torturo only, as ou Aug. 30 tlx) samo Johannes sends in a bill for "torturing tbreo persous at 75 florins a head' -total, florins, while a fow days later uo less than COO florius is charged for "banging four persous at J50 florins each, "and for "flogging two persons and burning a third" ho exacts 150 florins. Clearly considerations of economy, if not of hu manity, must havo tended toward tho reform of tho criminal code in Holland. OUht to Have Known Better.

STOLE A $10,000 OPINION. The Widow of a Famous General Who Needed Money to Dress Well. Some years ogo tbo widow of a fa mous Union general was intimato with the wife and daughters of a justice of tho supreme court aud was as familiar with their home as with her own, which was in tbe immediate neighbor hood. Sho was also intimate with the family of a prominent and popular lob byist, who was supposed to reproseut Jay Gould, C. P. Huntington and other men of large interests whenever any thing concerned them in congress. All the parties are now dead, excent tho lady in the case, whom 1 will cal. Mrs. Smith. She was a handsome, ambitious and frivolous woman, whose husband committed suicide by drowning himself in his bathtub. Sho lived a gay life afterward, but managed to keep many of her old friends. Knowing her lovo of money and the fact that her income did not keep pace with her expenses, tho lobbyist told her that ho would givo her $10,000 if she could get him a copy of the opinion which tho justice was expected to deliver iu tbe supremo court on tbe following Monday, involv ing tho constitutionality of tho Thnr man Pacific railroad law. Ho told her that he knew the opinion was in manu script and believed that tbo jndgo had it locked op iu the desk in his library. Sunday morning, as soon as she saw tho justico and his family si art for church, sho went across the street, around Thomas circle, rang tho bell ami told tbe servant that sho wanted to look at a book iu tho justice's library. As sho was accustomed to go about tho. house almost daily tbcy thought noth ing of it, and sho was allowed to re main undisturbed iu the samo room with tho decicion for nearly two hours. It is. supposed that she had a set of ful.-e keys, for tbo justice said tlmt thu opin ion was locked up in his desk and could not have been reached otherwise. But at any rate the lobbyist is known to have obtained tho opinion iu advance, and the woman was shortly i:fter ablo to pay off somo pressing obligations. An investigation disclosed tbo facts I havo stated, and it seemed to bo I ho only possible way tho opinion could have becu obtained. Of courso tho incident terminated relations between tho two families, and when tho story got out about town Mrs. Smith found it moro comfortable tarent her Washington resi dence and remove to New York. Chi cago Record. HANDKERCHIEFS WE USE. 328,000,000 Mlicle Ones Conxiiuicd Iu the Trade Yearly In I'll 1m Country. "Very few people outside the trade, " said a leading wholesale dealer in hand kerchiefs in New York to a reporter re cently, "aro awaro that tbo consump tion of handkerchiefs throughout the United States amounts to about 75,000 dozen daily. This means 27,375,000 dozen yearly, or 82S.500.000 inglo handkerchiefs. To satisfy this enormous demand tbero aro always kept in stuik iu this city at least 350,000,000 hand kerchiefs. It would be extremely di.Ti cult to say what such a snpi ly ;f gin ils is worth in the aggregate, as handker chiefs sell at wholesale at anywhere from 30 cents to 40 per dozeu, accord ing to quality and finish. But tho fig ures which 1 have given you aro not exaggerated, and they throw a strong light ou tho gigantic dimensions of an important branch of tho dry goods busi ness. "A comparatively small number of handkerchiefs are manufactured in this country, aud thoso that are made hi ro aro mostly of the cotton and inferior sillc variety.

Japanese silk handkerebii fs aro worth from 83 to .10 per dozeu, while tbo imported cambrics from Brussels sell for from $ to 7 a dozen, and tho cotton product manufactured iu Penn sylvania and New Ji rsey may bo had fur 30 cents por dozen. "Tho capital invested iu this linsi uess is immense. It may possiUy amount to $100,000,000, but owing to tbe fact that tho trade is distributed nothing like accurate figures can lo given. There arc six or fivi u firms iu tho dry goods district which deal exclu sively in handkerchiefs. But only two of tbeso houses handle tho domestic i.r ticlo extensively. Most of the largo American factories arc located outside of tbo city, but New York, as in scver ul other branches of tho dry goods busi ness, is tho great distributing center for the trade."

Two little girls occupied Beats to gether ou nn elevated train tho other uight. Both were scantily dressed, hol low eyed and hungry looking. They were unmistakably of that class known as "cashgirls" employed in the down town department stores, for each ad Vrossod tho other by a number in lieu of ii name. Directly opposite them sat a fashion ably dressed woman wbo was accom panied by a well groomed male escort. Upon their entrance tho conversation of thu little girls stopped abruptly and tbero was something pitiful in the ear. nestuess with which both watched every move of i tho woman so stunuingly gowned. Two pairs of abnormally keen though tired oyes thoroughly investi gated every bit of finery iu her apparel, from tho highest plume of her hat to tho soft, natty shoes which incased her shapely feet. "Say, 76," whispered the smaller of tho two girls, leaning toward her com panion, "she's a real lady, she is. You can tell by her make up. Ain't that a beaut of a bat, though? And look at that diamond breastpin I Whew I I'll bet that hat cost all of" "Sh!" interrupted 70 in an under tone. "She'll hear you. " There was a spell of silenoo as both girls leaned back with their heads resting against the top of tho seat. They were enjoying the dazzling picture before them. After glancing over a section of a newspaper which the niau had given her tho woman folded it up and handed it back to him. "Bid you get tbo tickets?" she asked. "Yes," was tbo answer iu au indiffer ent tone. "Let n;c see them." He extracted a small envelope from his vest pocket and banded it to her. "By tho way, " bo remarked, "we will have to go tonight. 1 couldn't get good Eoats for tomoirow, aud rather than miss it 1 took tbeso." "Tonight?" she repeated iu a tone of vexation. "You know well enough that wo cun t go tonight. We have another engagement" "Which wo can conveniently can cel," ho interpolated. "Indeed wo will not," sho retorted, with a di tirmined stamp of her loot. A protracted argument followed which was not too low for the cashgirls to learn thu drift. "You can go to Mrs. Browu'salone," finally exclaimed tho man, "aud I will take your mother to tho theater! Wo can call for you ou our way home if you insist on going. " "You'll not go to tho theatt-with anybody. Yon must and will . to Mrs. Brown's with me. " Thus assert ing herself, sho deliberately tore tho en velope containing tho tickets iu minuto parts and threw them ou tho floor. They K ft tbo traiu at the next sta tion, ho with a disgusted look ou bis face and sho with bead en et and a de fiant glare in her bright eyes. Scarcely had the rustle cf her gar ments ceased to bo beard when 70 sago ly observud; "You're all off, 27. She ain't a real lady. It's ouly her fiue duds what makes you think so. Sho's only an imitation, and uo clerk would take her to a window if sbo wauted to make a sale." Boston Herald. -The Terrapin Knew Uim. When the late Major Mnses P. Handy lived in Washington, lie was frequently attending dinners at Chamberlin's. At every dinner at all out of tho ordinary it was Chamberlin's habit to pasa around tbo table alive the terrapin that (it was assumed) tho guests wero to eat later. Ono night, as Major Handy told the story, when thu live terrapin were brought in, as usual, he noticed, us bo thought, ono of tho terrapins wagging his head at him. At the next banquet tho same thing happened again, and at the next one of thu terrapin detached himself from the rest and, crawling across thu table to tho major's plate, rose on his hind legs, and, resting bis fore legs against a convenient tumbler, he bowed three times, solemnly ; but courteously, to the astonished and awe struck gin st. Upon investigation it was discovered that tbo terrapin bud seen the major to frequently at Chamberlin's festal board that ho recognized him as an old friend and politely addressed him as such. Mr. Chaniberlin is said to have resented this story as a reflection ou the freshness of his terrapin. Kansas City Journal. i Two Capital Stories. !
