Are Perils of the Sea—They
New York, Aug.35.—
Captains of the
big Atlantic liners complain that in
spite of all tho precautions thev may
take, by having Inokout men in crow's
nents and fog horns signals at regular
iuteivals, they are still at the mercy of
the careless tramp steamshi ps and sail
ing ships, which roam irrespousibly
atxmt the Atlantic. Frequently these
vessels burn no Hide lights and keep
practically no lookout. They ^trust to
the big liners to keep out of their way.
'lwo weeks ago one of the largest
steamships sailins out of thi« port was
in a dense fog off the banks of New
foundland Neither her captain nor
her officers were aware there was a
vessel anywhere near them. Suddenly
the log lifted, and right ahead was a
big iron sailing bark.
The course of the steamship was al
tered in the nick of time, and with the
aid of her powerful propellers a colli
sion was narrowly averted. It was
impossible to make out the name of the
nailing vessel. The only man on deck
wan the helmsman.
The number of collisions and nhipn
going ashore ^since tho Republic and
Florida disaster in January has amply
demonstrated that the greatest danger
to those who go down to the sea in
ships ia fog. The great Atlantic liners
aie now big and strong enough to
practically defy the elements so far as
rough weather is concerned.
Mailship captains have to make their
time, and if they should ran oebind
the schedule too often they would be
shelved for a commander who is more
fortunate. "Dead slow," with many
captains means anything from fifteen
to Heventeen knots an hour. They
trust to the fog born, and to the new
submarine signal, which ^ia the best
friend the skippers of fast liners have
ever had.
Directors of the big steamship liners
instrnct their captains not to cut off
corner orTake any risk, especially in
incorporation f°K, when tne ship'sbonld be slowed
the secretary of down to five knots. Obedienco to those
orders would bring the ship into New
York on the day she was scheduled to
sail again for the other side. For all
their responsibility and worry the
average pay of these captains, wbo are
in chaige of from |5,000,000 to
$8,000,000 worth of property and 1,000
to 3,000 lives, is less ,than ftf.OOO a
year, the highest pay, 1,5000 being re
ceived by only one man.

Aged Woman Refuse Million
for Home Near the
Beverly, Mass., Aug. 2/5.—There aie
also things that one cannot buy. H. C.
Frick, the steel magnate, found it out
when his offer of 1,000.000 for the old
old Loring farm was refused by two
sweet, aged women who declare they
were born and reared there and in
tended to pass their declining yeats
Frick has a 11,000,000 estate near
President Taft. It is the "show
place" of Beverly.
Between the Frick villa and the
sea is the little farm of the Loring
sisters. Frick cannot stroll from his
villa to the sea front without trespass
ing on their land. Neither the elo
ouence of nis agents nor the eloquence
of his money will persuade the sisters
to sell.
"What do we want with a million
dollars v' the women asked. "It could
not make us any happier."
Frick wanted to lay a pipe through
the Loring farm so he could have sea
water for his bath. The old ladies re
fused him permission. He had to get
the city to grant him permission to lay
his pipe around the Loiing farm and
then down the streets- In turn, he
built a $H00,000 workshop In the city
and an industrial school.

8tatu« by Rodin to B« Unvellsd—Trag
ic History of Author's Daughter.
The dedication of a statue of Victor
Hugo by Kodin on Sept. 'JO, the fif
tieth anniversary of the publication of
the "Legende des Siecles" ("Story of
the Centuries"), Is to be made the oc
casion of a week's literary celebration
In memory of the great novelist and
poet. There will be a ceremony at the
Pantheon, a revival at the Comedle
Francaise of "Le Rol s*Amuse," with
Silvain in the part of Triboulot, and a
ceremony in front of Notre Dame,
with a procession of vagabonds carry
ing colored torches.
The logo will be reserved at the
Comedle Francaise for Adele Hugo,
the daughter of the poet, whose sad
and tragic history aroused the sym
pathy of the world. As a girl she was
kidnaped at Guernsey by an English
officer. Her parents senrched Europe
for her without obtaining a trace of
her whereabouts, when, several months
later, a girl was found wandering
alone, apparently demented, in the
streets of New York. "I am the
daughter of Victor Hugo," was all she
ever said. She was sent back to
France to her parents, but she kept
her lips sealed, and the mystery of her
martyrdom, perhaps a stranger and
more absorbing drama than her father
ever wrote, was never revealed. She
never entirely recovered her reason
and since the death of her father has
lived In his villa, morose, solitary and
alone, seldom speaking, and never of
the past. Occasionally she comes to
Paris to witness from the back of a
darkened box the reproduction of one
of her father's plays, but otherwise she
lives In seclusion, having no friends
and never receiving visitors.
