"It was on the 25th of July," said John,
"when with my wile, seven childttn, and my

harbor We bad never been to sea - before, and
we knew well enough that sea-sickness awaited
us, and that we should moat likely be all ill tt,
nether for a day or two. I bad made what pre.
paratton I could for this bad time, by providing
some simple medicines, a small stock of spirits,
and the means of procuring hot water at two
minutes notice. Sure enough, the sickness came,
and a miserable time it was. The wife and chit
