nowned as an exjiett navigator, for ho
was in tho habit of performing tlio
journey of 10,000 miles in four duyu,
Bovon hours, forty-two minutes and
nineteen and a half seconds with much
regularity, and had never yot been
run into by another vessel ; nor had
ho over sustained any very sirious

Having attained this pitch of marino
preeminent:?, Captain Sir Clements
Lano ho wns a baronet of ancient
creation entered heart and soul into
his profession, and thought there was
nothing like it. His fifth officer, how
ever, didn't caro much about it ; ho
had been, as youngct of a largo fam
ily, pitchforked into tin- employment
of tho Cablo Lino by a rich uncle, who
paid hU fees and took an interest in
his progrww as long as ho saw nqthinfr
of lii in. IJuL Halpli It. Nulfoid, being
young, goon looking and human, found
his profession remarkably dull. "You
see," ho remarked lo n ehauco acquaint
ance who had Introduced himself to
him as they lunched at the Pamo table
at Dclmoiuco's, ono day shortly before
the Paragon was to stait on tho homo-
ward journey ; "you see, wo junior
officers don't havo much fun ott board.

and procipitato flight, tho effect is, to
say tho least of it, tantalizini' : and

lho genial stranger was propeily
sympaitiouc, and, alter making a few
morn inquiries concerning tho arrange
ments and discipline on board tho
Paragon ho nodded "Good day," and
disappeared amid tho brott-ha-ha of
Mow Yoi k city.
On tho evening before tlio departure
of tho Paragon a gorgeous specimen
of Yatikeo, accompanied by a lovely
creature ot Bomo r.J summers, camo on
board, and, addressincr Kalnh Hawson
Nutford, who wns standing near tho
gangway, asked mat woithy whether
he was the Captain of tho boat. On
his replying that ho was tho fifth offi
cer, thu ankeo remarked :
..tirtt ... ... . .
"h cii, sir, in do obliged it vou
could take mo to tho C.ipt'n, under
whose chargo I want to plaeo this
young lady, whom 1 may as well in
troduco to you as you'ro ono of tho
ofliiors right now. Miss Ncllio J
Robertson, my niece ; Mr. Nutford
tuank you tilth ofliccr of this vessel.
While lho Captain was being found
Miss Robertson was dointr creat exe
cution with her great, soft eyes, and
by tho timo Captain Lano had duly
luenuneo me lair passenger m his list,
and had taken charge of her dunim
tho voyage, tho impressionable fifth
oiiicer was quite ready to put her uii
on n coil of rope uo pedestal being
handy and fall dorfn and worship
her. Tho fair Nellio was left with tho
Captain and n new passenger came on
board a green-oyod monster, who
attached himself to tho susceptihlo
Ralph, and proceeded to sharo with
that gentleman his meals, his berth and
his wholo existence.
Next mornins the Captain's proleuo
camo on deck. Gracious, how beauti
ful she was, and when Bhe wont up to
Nutford, and, putting both her hands
into ins, captured his soul wttli a look,
and requested to bo shown tho vessel,
tho hfth ollicer could havo clasped her
in his arms and sprung overboard, liko
a now Charmides, taking his Pallas
with him. His joy, however, was
short-lived, for in tho midst of their
peregrination tho Captain met them,
and telling Mr. Nutford to go aft and
see to something about which thcro
was no earthly hurry, undertook to ro
hevo him of his duty as cicerone. As
they camo up tho companion Nellie,
stumbling against Ralph, Mpieeozed
his hand and whispered "An plahir 1"
Tlio flirtation of theso two vountr
things for tho rest of tho day had to
bo pantomimic ; it wa?, therefore, tho
moro unrestrained. Ralph didn't
worship tho sea, but ho was n conscien
tious officer, and wouldn't let his love,
which grow fiorcer and flercor, inter-
fero with his duties. Upsides, tho Cap
tain took the greatest pains about his
fair clmroe, and kept a sharp lookout
upon his fifth ollicer, whoso eloquent
looks ho considered to bo in tho worst
possible tasto. Au opportunity occur
rd to them, however, just boforo tho
last meal, when thoy met under shelter
ot a irienuly stateroom.
"I nover know," said she, "that sail
ors woro so nice Do you know, sir,''
alio added, putting her hands upon his
shoulders, "that this uniform makes
you very handsome t I bchovo that's
tho only reason you're hero nt oil.'1
A fool would havo caught her
violently to his breast and kissed tho
passionato lips and oyes wlnoh raised
themselves to a lovel with bis. Ralph

"I must go away," ho whispered
"When can wo meet again T I shall

Ralph was madly tempted, ns ho went
forward, to dance about and shout
It was a pitch-dark night, though
tho nlr wns clear of fog. Tho two
lovcis sat beneath the bridge, nnd ho
told her in whispers nil about himself,
nnd how fntnl it would bo it it wcto

prayer nntl let her como to him on deck.
liut what did anything matter wlulo
her soft, smooth fingers twined and
knotted themselves in his, and her
glory ot gold hair wns lho only thing
between her cheek nnd his shoulder.
Suddenly theio wns a irrcnt iar nnd
a dull, crashing rcpoit. Ncllio crouch
ed in tho shadow as Nutford sprang
to his feet and learntd from lho men
On watch that tho Paragon had been
run into. In a moment all was con
fusion, or apparent confusion. Tho
Captain, cool as if ho had been taking
his seat at dinner, camo on deck and
said, in a loud cairn voico to tho terri
fied passengers :
"Wo havo been run into and tho
Paragon is sinking, Tliero is no
danger to us personally. The sea is
calm and tho boats are in perfect order
and m preparation lor such an accident.
In an hour wo shall bo on board tho
ship that has run us down, which is
wailing for us closo by." Then, under
ns calm and careful orders, passenccrs
and crew embarked in tho Paragon's
boats, and in n very short time tho
little flotilla was pulling away from the
disappearing liner. Rut tho ship that
had sunk them was nowhero to be
found ! Favored by tho darkness, she
had got away, without stopping to
learn what had.bccomo of tho Paragon
aud nor living ireigut.
JNeino and Kaiph wero together in
ono of tho boats. No inquiry had yot
been mado into tho disaster : but tho
two mon on watch who wero in the
Bimo boat with them, said they had
suddenly seen tlio befits of a steamer
closo to them, and as thoy sprang for
ward to hail her and civo tho alarm.
sho had struck them, nnd whon thoy
recovered lrcm their momentary con
sternatioti sho had disappeared 1
"lou hear V said JNcllio to tho
terror-stricken fifth officer, whose sido
sho had nover loft "they didn't sno
nor tin sno struck us. xou must sup
port iheir statemont or you aro a ruin
ed man. lour certihcato will bo can-
celtd, and, oh, Ralph 1 if tho truth
should bo known, think of my over-
lasting bhamo 1 For my sake, if you
love me, &avo my good namo end
yours, nnd back up their story. You
seo they aro both agreed, and you
wero turther trom whero she struck us
than thoy were."
1 ho men repeated their story attain
nnd ngain. Morning broke, and be-
toro any ono had timo to sutler very
much a steamer bound on tho same
journey, picked up tho wholo company.
iio uaptain interrogated tho men
on watch and Mr. Nutford as closely
ns possible. Thcro was no doubt
about tho facts. Tho Paragon had
been run down by a mysterious vessel,
tho namo of which no ono had observ
ed, and had taken advantage of tho
darkness to desert tho ship sho had
run into. Tho homo voyago was satis
factorily accomplished and Ralph and
Nellie, the former no longer hampered
hy duties ot navigation, hail amplo
opportunities of carrying on their love
auair, which had neon accompanied by
such an overwhelming catastrophe.
Nutford easily succumbed to Nellie's
soft casuistry, for to own his neglect of
duty would bo ruin to his career and
hois and would render their marriage,
which was to him n forecono conclu
sion, an absolute impossibility.
A minute inquiry naturally wai held
at Seringapalani, at tho conclusion of
which it was decided though in olli
cial language that thcro was some
mystery somewhere, nnd n good deal
moro in tho circumstances of the
collision that met tho eye or ear j but
mat there was no direct ovtdenco re
flecting upon tho conduct of tho fifth
ofliccr, who camo home from the in-
iniiy a mnn about whom nothing de
finite is said, but a good deal is im
plied, and in this unenviable stato of
mind ho found waiting for him Nellie,
his affianced bride, nndabluoenvelopo.
Tho latter was lrom a firm of solici
tors, aniiouncinc that his old undo had
died, leaving him his solo heir.
"Thank God !" ho oxclaiiued. "Poor
old gontlcmau, ho has dona mo n good
turn at tho moment I required it most.
Nellio sweetheart I am n rich man.
1 o morrow I throw up this profession
whio , if I cared litllo about boforo, I

lho answer of tho vountr person ad
dressed has not boon recorded ; it is
suflicient for us to know that, two
months later, Nellie Mrs. Ralph Nut
ford was installed in an exquisito
little apartmept looking out upon tlio
Champs Elysecs, nnd hor husband, who
had been down to lho Riviera to look
out for a permanent habitation for
himself and his bride, was hastening
back to her in a first-class carriago on
tlio Paris-Marseilles, rnilwny.
In tho corner opposite to him sat an
American, who, with tho affability of
that free-born rnco, had entered into
conversation with him, and tho convor
sation had turned upon tho shipping at

"On tho contrary, ' replied Mr. Nut
ford, "I should very much liko to hear

"Oh, they're- not my experiences i

How Animals Treat Themselves When Suf

Animals cet rid of their parasites by
using dust, mud, clay, etc. Thoso Buf

when a dog has lost its appetite it cats
that species of grass known as dog's
grass, which acta as an emetic and a
purgative. Cats also eats grass.
Sheep and cows, when ill, seek out cer
tain herbs. An animal suffering from
chronic rheumatism nlwavs keeps, ns
tar as possible, m tho sun. Tho war

If a chimpanzee is wounded it stops
tho bleeding by placing its hand ou
tho wound or dressing it with leaves
and grass. When an animal has a
wounded leg or an arm hanging ou it
completes tho amputation by mcaus of
its teeth. A doer ou being stung in
the muzzle by a viper was observed to
plungo its head repeatedly for several
days into running water. This animal
eventually recovered. A sporting dog
was run over by a carriage. During
threo weeks in Winter it remained ly

terrier hurt his right eyo. It remained
under a counter, avoiding light and
heat, although it habitually kept closo

During tho fiscal year ending Juno
30, 1880 and that is tho only cntiro
fiscal year which has elapsed sinco tho
inauguration of tho present Adminis
tration tho ordinary expenditures of
tlio Government wero reduced S25,030

Thcro were, however, somo extraordi
nary expenditures, to wit, in tho pay
ment of pensions to Union Koldiois.
That incrcaso over tho amount expend
ed for the same purpose tho previous
year, was S7,302,C90. So you will sco
that, notwithstanding this increase, the
net saving as compared with tlio last
year of Republican Administration,
was S17, 74.1,700 quito a goodly sum."

tho curront fiscal year will exceed tho
