'Almost any pilot will tell you that
his work Is much more difficult than
you Imagine; but the pilots of the
HugU know that they have one hun
dred miles of the most dangerous river
on earth running through their hands
the HugU between Calcutta und the
Bay of Bengal and say nothing. Their
service is picked and sifted as carefully
as the bench of the supreme court, for a

lutely from the Ifugll bridse to the last
buoy at Pilot's Itidge, one hundred and
forty miles away, and out in the Bay of
Bengal, where the steamers ilrst pick
up the pilots from the brig.
A HugU pilot does not bring papers

ship. He ha3 beautiful rooms In the
port office at Calcutta, and generally
keeps himself to the society of his own
profession, for though the telegraph
reports tha more important soundings
of the river dully there is much to be
learned between trip and trip.
Some millions of tons of shipping
must find their way to und from Cal
cutta each twelve-month, and unless
the Hugli were watched as closely as
men watch the Atlantic cables there is
a fear that it might silt up as It has
silted up round the old Dutch and
Portuguese ports twenty and thirty
miles behind Calcutta. So the port of
fice sounds and scours and dredges and
builds spurs and devices for coaxing
currents and labels all the buoys with
their proper letters and attends to the
semaphores and the lights and the
drum, ball and cone storm signals, and
the pilots of the Hugli do the rest, but
in spite of all the care the Hugli swal
lows a ship or two t-very year.
When Martin Treyor had followed
this life from his boyhood; when he
had risen to be a senior pilot entitled to
bring up to Calcutta the big ships
drawing over twenty-four feet that
can (or could till a few years ago) only
pass by special arrangement; when he
had talked nothing but Hugli and pi
lotage all his life, he was exceedingly
Indignant that his only son should de
cide upon following his father's profes
sion. Mrs Trevor had died when the
boy was a child, and as he grew older
Trevor, In the Intervals of his business,
noticed that the lad was very often by
the river side no nice place for a boy.
Once, when he asked him if he could
make anything out of the shipping,
little Trevor replied by reeling oft the
list of all the house-flags In sight at the
"You'll come to a bad end, Jim," said
Trevor. "Little boys haven't any busi
ness to know house-Hags."
"Oh, Pedro at the Sailors' home
taught me. He says you can't begin
"At what, please?"
"Piloting. I'm nearly M now and
end I know where all the shipping in
the river is, and I know what there
was yesterday over the Mayupur bar,
and I've been down to Diamond har
boroh, a hundred times and I've"
"You'll go to school, son, and learn
what they'll teach you. and you'll turns
out better than a pilot," said his father,
but he might Just as well have told a
shovcl-mosed porpoise of the river to
come ashore and begin life as a hen.
Jim held his tongue he noticed that
all the best pilots in the port office did
that and devoted his young attention
and all his spare time and money to the
river he loved.
Trevor's son became as well known
as the Bankshall Itself, and the port
police let him Inspect their launches,
and the tug boat captains had always
a place for him at table, and the
mates of the big steam drvdgvB used
to show him how the machinery
worked, and there were certain native
rowboats that Jim practically owned;
and he extended his patronage to the
rail that runs to Diamond harbor, forty
miles down the river. In the old days
nearly all . the Kast India company's
ships used to discharge at Diamond
harbor on aocount of the shoals above,
but now ships go straight up to Cal
cutta, and they have only some moor
ings for vessels In distress there, and a
telegraph service and a harbor master,
who was Jim's Intimate friend. He
would sit In the offlco and listen to the
pounding of the shoals as they were
reported every day, and attend to the
movements of the steamers up and
down (Jim always felt he had lost
something If a boat got In or out of the
river without his knowing It), and
when, the big Jlners, with their rows of
burning port holes, tied up in Diamond
harbor for the might Jim would row
from one ship to the other through
the sticky hot air and the buzzing mos
quito and listen respectfully ait the
pilots conferred together. Once, for a
treat, his father took him clown clear
out to the sand heads and the pilot
brig, and Jim was joyfully sea sick as
she tossed and pitched In the bay. So
be had to go down three or four times
more with friendly pilots till he had
cured his weakness. The cream of life,
though, was coming up in a tug or a
police boat from Diamond harbor to
Calcutta over the James and Mary
the terrible sands christened after a
royal Blilp they sunk two hundred
years ugo. They nre made by two
rivers thut enter the Hugli six miles
apart und throw their own silt across
the Bilt of the main stream so that
with each turn of weather and tide the
sands shift and weather like a cloud.
Jt was here, (the tales sound much
worse, when they are told In the rush
and growl of the muddy waters) that
the Countess Stirling, 1.1,000 tons,
touched and capsized in ten minutes;
and a 2,(W0-tan steamer in two; and a
pilgrim ship in live; and another
steamer literally In an Instant, holding
down her men with the masts and
shrouds as she lashed over. AVhen a
ship touches on the James and Mary
thu river knocks her down and buries
her and the sands quiver all around her
and reach out under water and take
Young Jim would lie up in the bows
of the tug and watch the straining
buoys kick apd smother in the coffee
colored red current, and the semaphores
and Hags signal from the bank how
much water there was In the channel
till he learned that men who deal with
men can afford to be careless on the
chance of their fellows being like them;
but men who deal with things dare not
relax for an instant. "And that's the
very reason," old McEwen said to him
once, "thut the James and Mary is the
safest part of the river," nnd he put the
big black liundoorah that draws twenty-five
feet through the Knstern Gate,
with a turban of white foam wrapped
round her foot and her screw beating
as steadily as his own heart.
If Jim could not get away to the
river there was always the big, cool
port office, where the soundings were
calculated and the maps were drawn;
or the pllot's-room, where he could lie
In a long chair and listen to the talk
about the Hugli; and there was the
librarv, where if you had money you
could buy charts and books of direc
tions against the time that you actually
steamed over the places themselves. It
was exceedingly hard for Jim to hold
the list of Jewish kings in his head,
and he was more than uncertain as to
the end of the verb "auillr;' if you fol
lowed It fur enough down the page, but
he could keep the soundings of three
channels distinct in his head and. what
Is more confusing, the changes in the
buoys from Garden Reach down to
Saufror, as well as the greater part of
the Calcutta Telegraph, the only paper
he ever read.
Unluckily, you cannot peruse about
the Hugli without money, even though
you are the son of the best known
pilot on the river, nnd ns soon as
Trevor understood how his son was
spending his time he cut down his
pocket money; and Jim had a very
generous allowance. In his extremity
he took counsel with Pedro, the plum
colored mulatto at the sailor's home.
And Pedro was a bad man. lie Intro
duced Jim to a Chinaman in Machua
tellnh, a nasty place in Itself, and the
Chinaman, who answered to the name
of Krh-Tze, v.-hen he was not 'smoking
opium talked pigeon Knglish to Jim
for nn hour.
"S'pose you take. Can do?" he said,
Jim considered the chances. A Junk

outward would be two hundred rupees.
On the other hand, he was not quail
tied, so he could not ask more than
half. But, on the other hand, he was
fully certain of a thrashing from his
father for piloting without license. So
he asked one hundred and seventy-live
rupees, and Krh-Tzo beat him down to
a hundred and twenty, and that was
like a Chinaman all over. The cargj
of his Junk was worth anything from
fifty to a hundred thousand rupees, and
Krh-Tze was getting enormous freight
on the colllns of thirty 'or forty dead
Chinamen whom ho was taking to be
burled In their native country. Itlch
Chinamen will pay fancy prices for
their services, and they have a super
stition Hint the Iron of steamships Is

Tze's Junk had crept up from- Singapore,
via Penang and ltangonn, to Calcutta,
where Krh-Tze hud been staggered by
the pilot dues. .This time he was going
out at a reduction with Jim, who, Pedro
said, was Just as good as a pilot.

ARMENIANS IN TURKEY.
Firm Race to Accept Christianity, Hut
Ever Since Suffered for It.
From the Review of Reviews,
Probably one-half of the population
of Turkish Armenia Is Mohammeda.
composed of Turks and Kurds. The
former are mostly found in and near
the large cities of Eizlnjlan, Baibourt,
Krzroom and Van, and the planes along
the northern part. The Kurds live Jn
their mountain villages over the whole
region, but especially In the south, near
Moosh and Bltlis, and In the Hekkiarl
country beyond Van and the mountains
stretching south tind east and far over
into Persia. Their number would be
dltllcult to compute. A few of them go
a great ways. They are a race of line
possibllltes, as shown in the case of
Saladln. But at present they resemble
a pack of human wolves active, cruel,
proud, treacherous, and still calling
themselves "lords of the mountains,"
though the Turks have largely broken
their power and spirit during the last
fifty years. They keep up a strict tribal
relation, owing allegiance to their
sheikhs, some of whom are still strong
and rich, and engage In bitter feuds
with one another. They could not stand
a moment against the Ottoman power
if determined to crush and disarm them.
But three years ago his majesty sum
moned the chiefs to the capital, pre
sented them with decorations, banners.
uniforms, and military titles and sent
them back to organize their tribes into
cavalry regiments, on which he was
pleased to bestow the name "Ham
idieh," after his own. Thus, shrewdly
appealing to their pride of race and
winking at their subsequent acts, the
sultan obtained a power eager In time
of peace to crush Armenian growth and
spirit and a bulwark that might check,
in his opinion, the lirst waves of the
next dreaded Russian invasion.
The Armenians are generally known
as being bright, practical, Industrious
and moral. They are of a very peace
able disposition and entirely unskilled
in the use of arms, the mere possession
of which Is a serious crime in the case
of Christians, although the Kurds are
well equipped with modern rifles and
revolvers, and always carry them.
Their great and fundamental weak
ness, seen ithrough all their history, is
a lack of coherence, arising from their
exaggerated Individualism. They have
the distinction of being the first race
hn accepted Christianity, this having
taken place when King Dertad and his
people received baptism, in 276 A. D.,
thirty-seven years before Constantlne
ventured to Issue even the edict of toler
ation. Their martyr roll has grown
with very century. The fact that the
Armenian stock extols at ull today is
proof of its wonderful vitality and ex
cellent quality. For 3,000 years Ar
menia, on account of her location, has
been trampled into dust, both by de
vastating armies and by emigrating
hordes. She has been the prey of Ne
buchadnezzar, Xerxes and Alexander;
of the Romans, the Parthlans and Per
sians; of Byzantine, Saracen and crusa
der; of Seljuk and Ottoman and Rus
sian and Kurd. Through this awful
record the Christian church, founded
by Gregory, the "Illuminator," has
been the one rallying point and source
of strength, and this explains the tre
mendous power of the cross on the
hearts of all, even of the most Ignorant

The golden ace of the wheelman has
not yet arrived, but it Is fast approaching
ing. A few years ago the old ordinary
which will soon be a museum relic-
cost the enthusiastic pedaler, accord
ing to tho size of the wheel, all the way
horn iVla to $150. In 1888 tio first safe
ty bicycle was built In America, and as
toon as the new machine came into
popular favor the star of the ordinary
began to wane, until at the present
time no dealer would' haVe the nerve to
ask more than S5 at the most for one
of the old-style wheels. When the
Bcft-ty first came In, the manufacturers
claimed that the new machines cost
much more to manufacture than tho
ordinary, and made this an excuse for
raising the standard price to $135. Of
course the riders objected, but there
were so few manufacturers In the coun
try that there was no difficulty In main
taining tho price, and later, when the
pneumatic tire came Into use, In rais
ing tho price to $150.
Lured by the stories of the Immense
profits there was In manufacturing
wheels, new factories were started and
competition soon became so active that
the old concerns, in order to maintain
their supremacy, announced In the
sprlnc of 1-S94 a cut In price to $12u,
which was the standard list price of all
the leading makes last season. Even
this reduction did not check the rapid
multiplication of factories, and the in
creased competition forced tho price
still further down, bo that $100 is now
announced as the list price for 1895
According to the Buffalo Express it
must not bo Inferred, however, that the
list price always means the Belling
price, as during last season a cash offer
of $85 to $H0 was enough to buy any one
of the best makes, although, of course,
It would be hard to get any one of the
dealers to admit It, and this will un
doubtedly be the case during the com
What Competition Will Do.
By the end of 1895 it Is safe to pro
phesy that almost any bicycle can be
bought for almost any price, for In
spite of the fact of the almost unprece
dented Increased popularity of the
wheel during the last year and the
likelihood of a still greater Increase
during this season, there is no ques
tion that tho Bupply of bicycles maim
factured this year will greatly exceed
the demand. The opening of 1894 found
the makers with quantities of left-over
stock on hand which was disposed of
at or bolow cost to get It out of the
way and this accounts In a great meas
ure for the Immense sales of this sea
son, as many of these cheap wheels
were bought by men who would never
think of paying $100 for a bicycle. Aside
from this old stock, the sales during
the season were comparatively light
ns makers had not fully recovered
from the disastrous season of 1893, and
were Inclined to go slow. The end of
the season found warerooms cleaned
out and all goods converted Into cash
and the predictions on all sides of a
remarkable year for 1895 stimulated
manufacturers Into adding to their
plants, and making preparations for
doubling or trebling business. Leaving
out of consideration the immense num
ber of new makers who will enter the
field for the lirst time this year this
fact in Itself indicates that the end of
1895 will find manufacturers In the
same condition that they were nt the
end of 1SS3 with a big left-over stock
that must be disposed of nt any price
to meet pressing obligations. Then

built of the beat material that money
can buy and with the most careful nnd
expensive workmanship, can be sold to
dealers at a price that will enable them
to market tt at $50, provided thnt they
get cash and ars satisfied with as large
a margin of profit as they get on their
leading lines of dry goods or hardware
or whatever their other stock may be,
When it is considered that the actual
cost to the maker of all the materials
which enter Into the construction of a
first-class bicycle. Including tires, en
ameling and nickel-plating, Is less than
$25, und that per wheel is an extremely
liberal estimate for all the skilled labor
required In Its construction, it will be
seen that a maker building, say 10,000
bicycles, can easily afford to dispose of
them for cash for $10 apiece.
