ful, aud it is doubtful if any great ocean
steamer carries lifeboats with sufficient
capacity to float the crew and the passen

the Inadequacy of these lifeboats would
be mnuifested in several ways.
In u moderate heavy sea it would be a -difficult
undertaking to lower them suc
cessfully from the davits, and almost an
impossibility to land the passengers in
thein if once floated. The roll of the ship
and the swells of the sea would very likely
capsize them. Should they, however, es

of the huge steamer would undoubtedly
draw tbein down into the terrible vortex
and swamp them.
If a steamer is stranded iipon a deserted
roast, and attempts are made to hind the
crew upon the beach, an ordinary rough
Rurf would make the lifeboat of steamers
an insecure craft for the purpose. Many
instances are recorded where . the boats
were quickly swamped and finally washed

Tor men-of-war the lifuboats are still
less adequate to meet sudden emergencies
of this character. Ammunition must be
landed without gutting wet, and the sailors
must bo transported to the shore in num

barduient of Kort Fisher some forty boat
loads of the fleet were dumped into the
surf while tho troops were landing on the

'A life raft has been invented at the Kit

The raft consists of two long floats made
of tobin bronze and about the size and
ihapeof canoes. These two floats arese
:urely fastened totfetlrcr by metallic bands

rough sea cannot part them. ' The level
platform is constructed over the top with
louts aud rowlocks attached. A mast and
sail can also be quickly used If the float is
cast away upou the sea. Inside the hollow
floats lockers are built for storing water

A Luxury fa India,

tne leaf is folded in a particular way and
eaten with its contents. The betel leaf is
obtained from a creeper extensively culti
vated by the Hindoos, who regard it as
very sacred, and it is with the greatest
difficulty that any one who is a follower of
another religion can obtain admittance
into a plantation of betel vines. The betel
nut is obtained from tne arcca paim, anu
is so called simply because it Is eaten with
the betel leaf.
The visible effect of eating pawn Is that
the teeth, tongue and lips all become red,
and the two latter much swollen, so much
so that, after a long coarse of pawn chew
ing, the utterance becomes thick and indis
tinct and the teeth black. The expectora
tion is also inuuh increased and is colored
a deep red from the some cause.
To our EogUah taste pawn is very or.-
fensive, but the natives of India relish it
and regard it as a necessity. It is much
eaten by Mohammedans of both sexes and
by the natives of BengiiL The Hindoos of
northern India do not indulge in it so
freely. Eurasians and the others of mixed
races frequently chew it, and some are in
tho habit of continually taking it; but it
would be quite accurate to say that no
person of pure English parentage is in tne
habit of eating pawn. wiamners- jouruui,
A Cat That Took to Water.
The most interesting trait in our cat's
character did not appear until he had been
a week or so on board. Then he gave us a
surprise. , It was when we were lying in
Camden harbor. Everybody was going
ashore to take a tramp among the mils,
and Charlie, the cook, was coming, too, to
row the boat back to the yacht.
Middv discovered that he was somehow
"getting left," Being a prompt and very
decided cat, it did not take him long to
make up his mind what to do. He ran to
the low rail of the yaclit, put His lorepaws
on it. and cave us a long, anxious looK.
Then as the boat was shoved oil be raised
his voice in a plaintive mew. We waved
him a goodby. chaffed him pleasantly,
and told him to mind the anchor and have
dinner ready when we got back.
That was too much for his temper. As
quick as a flash he dived overboard and
was swimming like a water spaniel after
That was the strangest thing we nad
ever seen in all our lives. We were quite
used to elephant that could play at see
saw and horses that could fire cannon, to
learned pigs and educated dogs, bnt a cat
that of his own accord would take to the
water like a full blooded Newfoundland
was a little beyond anything we had ever
heard of. Of course tho boat was stopped
and Middy was taken aboard drenched and
shivering, but perfectly happy to bo onco
more with the crow. He had been ignored
and slichted. but he had insisted on his
rights, and as soon as they were recognized
he was quite contented. Baltimore Amer
ican. How tho Burglar Was Reformed.
When Uriah Heep was in tho model
prison, enjoying all the favors which the
system of reformation In vogue tnero con
ferred upon its recipients, he imparted to
a company of visitors the important in
formation, "It would be better for every
body if they got took np and was brought
here." A burglar, whom the church army
has enrolled in its ranks, is preaching
much the same doctrine. He is only forty-
two years of age, and has spent seventeen
of them in jaiL
Four or five years ago he invented a new
implement for opening safes, which ulti
mately led to the opeuing of his eyes. It
was an excellent instrument for the pur
pose of gaining entrance to locked offices;
only the first time he brought it into opera
tion it stuck in the safe, and his attempts
to get it out made so much noise that a
policeman heard mm.
This caused him to bo "tooK up," and to
that happy event he dates bis present en
joyment. He is now assisting the army's
work by preaching to members of his for
mer "profession" how much better it
would be for their own good if thoy all al
lowed themselves to be "took up."
Recently housebreakers havo been ar
rested in nnusual numbers. The police
force have hitherto received the credit of
these hauls, but doubts may now arise
whether it is not really due to the work of
the converted burglar, who blesses the day
when his own invention led to his arrest
Million. Love's Ludicrous Names.
There is nothing funnier to the woman
than the names a man colls her when he is
in love. The appositcuess of these at the
time she takes for granted, but in less dis
turbed moments it seems that they must
have been a joke, and no one can so nppre
date their humor as herself. "The sort of
epithets that have been bestowed on me,"
confides one of the persons to whom such
words are addressed, are Snowbird,
'Snowdrop,' 'Snowflower,' 'Whispering
Dove,' I regret now I didn't make a full col
lection as I went along. But the only name
which seems to have had a grain of sen&
was when a man called me a slim young
pine.' Now, that is rather out of the or
dinary, but I can detect in it a certain dis
crimination ven at a moment when dis
crimination can be scarcely expected. Since

"THE ' MODERN JULIET'S BED."
Uracil Lot. Bomantie Than the Old One,
bnt Cleaner and More Comfortable.
Next to chairs and tables, beds are about
the most Important articles of domestic
furniture. The European type of bed seems
to have got itself fixed at a comparatively
early date, and it did not change till very
late. The theory apparently was to make
the bed a sort of tcut or fortification
aguinst the winds of heaven. The mediaeval
upholsterer knew something about the
mediiBval builder, aud realized that when
you went to sleep In a room with no paper
on the walhi, and huge windows which did
not quite fit their frames, or little arrow
Blits with no glass at all, you wanted some-
thing to keep out the draft. Hence toe
tremendous timber canopy of old bed
steads, and the voluminous curtains and
hangings In which the whole structure was
Ix)ng after there was any necessity for
this tentlike arrangement It was kept up
for the honor and glory of the thing, so to
speak, because there wus an air of luxury
aud costliness about these folds and lengths
of silk or chintz which made jR-oplo reluc
tant to part with them. Even now in
France and other parts, of tho continent
they will not willingly give up their elabo
rately upholstered bedsteads for tho harsh
looking structure of iron bars and brass
tubes which is gradually usurping the
place of honor in tho bedrooms of Anglo
Saxondom. It must be admitted that if the modern
British bedstead is, on the whole, cleaner
and possibly healthier, it is certainly less
romantic. One hardly likes to fancy
Juliet's bed provided with round brass
knobs at the corners for its sole adorn
ment. At any rate, the old fashioned type
of bedstead lent itself very well to ornate
artistic treatment, and nothing can bo
more magnificent than tho bedsteads de
signed for Marie Antoinette and other
French ladies in the great age of furniture
during the latter half of the last century.
But that was a period when the simplest
objects of household use were treated by
master hands; and it makes an amateur's
mouth water to look at the pictures in

Lincoln's Goose Nest Home.
Near the graveyard where Lincoln's fa-
thernnd stepmother rest, seven miles south
of Charleston, Ills., in n place then known
as Goose Nest, the Liunulus made thnir
final settlement on removing from Indiana.
Here Abraham Uneoln assisted his father
in "getting settled," as they called it. llo
helped him build a log cabin, and cleared
for him a patch of ground, aud when ho
saw him "under bind way" in the new
country bade him goodby and started north
afoot, lie found employment not far from
Springfield, Ills., where the active part of
his early life was spent. Though he did
not linger long in the Goose Nest cabin, he
was there long enough to stamp his indi
viduality on every heart for miles around,
and many aro the stories told of his so
journ among these people. It was my lot
to bo born and reared a few miles from the
early homo of the Lineolns. I was shown
a bridge he helped to build and many
other relics of his boyhood days.
One very old man told mo that he once
rode up to Thomas Lincoln's cabin and
inquired if ho could spend the night there.
lie was informed that the house afforded
only two beds, and one of these belonged
to a son who was then at home; but if he
would get the conseut of this boy to take
him in as a bedfellow he could stay. Tho
stranger dismounted and soon found the
six foot boy in the back yard lying on a
board reading. The boy consented ami the
man slept with him that night. Tho boy
wus Abraham Lincoln, and the other never
tires of telling how he spent the night with
the future president. Century.
