A SHIP'S DOCTOR.
The Tliiiitt'N For Which lit* Should or
Slinuli! Sot He I'nid.
A correspondent of Lloyd's Weekly
lias expressed the views of a ship doc
tor iu the following words: ".Many
travelers arc In doubt as to the po
sition of the ship's doctor in regard to
his remuneration from passengers for
services rendered. The merchant ship
ping act enacts that every foreign go
ing vessel having a hundred persons on
board or upward shall carry on board
as part of lu:r (Complement a' duly
qualified medical praetioner. Further
more, an emigrant ship—i. e., a foreign
going vessel which carries tifty or
more steerage passengers-- must have
a medical man. irrespective of the
number of crew or of other passengers
carried. The salary of the doctor on
board is commensurate with these du
ties to his ship. To any passengers
who are suffering from ordinary forms
of seasickness and its concomitant,
evils or who receives injuries which
are in any way due to the ship the
doctor's services are free. For any
sickness contracted before sailing or
during a voyage which is not conneclcd
with the above named conditions lie is
entitled to a remuneration at: the same
rate as he would receive on shore. Ob
viously it would be as unfair to ex
pect that his services to passengers
should be rendered gratis as it would
be for any visitor in a hotel or travel
ing on a railway to expect to have
medical attention free in any illness
for which the hotel or railway authori
ties could not be hold responsible."
The writer of a letter to the London
Lancet says that the case of the ship's
surgeon is stated with accuracy in the
above sentences and adds that ship's
surgeons arc of two !:inds- first, those
who after they have qualified take
such a position either for health or for
pleasure, ami, second, those who elect
to make sea life a permanency.
The pay of the ship's doctor varies
from $ ii) to $50 a month. This is for
duties to .officers and crew. As regards
passengers in relation to the surgeon
the following groups will Include all:
First, the passenger who takes the
Initiative by remunerating the surgeon,
perhaps handsomely, for any services
rendered second, the passenger who
asks for his bill and pays it if reason
able third, the passenger who, travel
ing for the first time, does not know
whether to ask for his bill or wait for
it to be delivered, Init is pleased to be
enlightened on the matter fourth, the
passenger who clings to the old time
notion that the surgeon Is there solely
for the benefit of passengers, and, fifth,
the passenger who never intends to
pay the surgeon.—Medical Kecord.

In the middle ages, when steel and
silver mirrors were almost exclusively
used, a method of backing glass for the
same purpose with thin sheets of metal
was known. Small convex mirrors of
glass were made in Germany before
the sixteenth century and were in de

times. They were produced by blow
ing' small glass globes, into which
while they were hot was passed through
a.pipe.a mixture ofr.tin, antimony and.
rosin. When the globe was coated

afterward cut into convex lenses, which

of work and collects whatever he can

of paper or an orange peel to a dilapi

market value, for they always contain
in the instep one sound piece that can

more at the heel and the back. Old
provision tins, again, are full of money
the lead soldering can be removed and
melted Into cakes, while the tin goes
to make children's toys. There are
about (1,000 of this class of night birds
in Paris. Auoiher quaint uiglit bird
is the "guardian angel." The "guard
ian angel" is a person attached to the
establishments of some »ia*-traqucis

houses for the purpose of looking after
the safety of drunken customers, lie

fends tlieni in case of need, as often
as not has
put them to bed and
leaves tlieni only when they are with
out the reach of mischief. lie earns
about ."id cents a day. Cases are also
on record where grateful drunkards
have remembered the "angel" in their
wills. To return the compliment: the
"angel" has invested some of his funds
in the purchase? of a'barrow, the object
of which is but too obvious.

It ma3' interest women to know that
the first: jewelry store was started in
the city of (.'hang On about. .'5,000 years
ago. The Celestial millionaires of that
period knew nothing of the l'M.sclnation
of diamonds, because diamonds were
not hi vogue at that B. C: period.
Pearls and jade and coral. and other
unpolished mineral substances had to
content them, and, as if to make good
the glitter of revieres and tiaras, the
princes of Chang On employed ar
tisans to fashion tlieni the most worir
derful gold and silver ornaments,
which in themselves were far more
costly than diamonds.—Boston Herald.
