miiiotri pinned to tho breast of her tight
lilting ulster, who clings confidingly to
tho arm of tho forttinato father of bucIi n
girl. Already thcro is n slight oscilla

her father's nrni.

Papa Is n well seasoned traveler who
has not rounded Cnpo Hntterns. Ho
smiled Indulgently und says thcro Isn't n
particle of danger. This la only ti const
voyngo nnyhow, Whereat tho anxiotta
mother of two small children looks much
relieved, nnd a motherly appearing old
lady, who remarks that alio has crossed
tho ocean nlno times, smiles protectingly
upon overybody. Even tho uaiitically
equipped youth, slim of leg and narrow
chested, but rigged out with all tho par
aphernalia of tlio Old Man of tho Sea,
slide ra n gleam of secret satisfaction to
cross hla sallow faco. This youth baa
excited tho envy of superficial observers
who nro willing to admit that thoy nro
entering upon their first ocean voyage.
How comforting it would bo to bo nblo
to contemplate tho wntery horizon with
such complacency ns hist Presently
Bandy Hook la passed and tho "land
well" has grown insinuating. Tho nau
tical young man turns on Ida heel nnd de
scends haughtily to tho loncsomo lower
deck. For lack of anything belter to do
you follow him shortly nnd nro surprised
to noto tho nshy pallor of hla fnco na ho
stands with head drooped over tho InlTrnll.
Thoro nro adeqtiato reasons why, for n
moment or two, ho ia not conscious of
your presence. If you woro a whlto clo
pliant, or u Zulu costumed in tho nntivo
wnr paint, this nautical young man
would Imvo 110 idea of your approach.
Tho fact is, ho Is otherwise engaged, nut
beforo you havo tlmo to retire thcro ia a
rift in tho cloud of Ida misery, nnd with
tho last vestlgo of assumed superiority
dislodged from hia system ho explains:
"I was ah -you seo 1 was suffering
from an nttack of cr -of Indigestion
when I canio on board.
Thcro has been n consldornblo thinning
out of passengers on the upper deck. Tho
anxious mother of two small children,
together with 0110 of tho latter, has dis
appeared, und tho remaining olive branch
la being carried below, limp und whlto,
in tho nrma of tho pitying stewardess.
It ia tho "land swell."
Transatlantic stcamcra nro too big and
heavy to bo nlTcctcd by tho land swell,
but tho Ycuiasseo and her human cargo
get tho full benefit of It, It la not nn un
pleasant motion If your stomach happena
to bo firmly unchored in Its natural osi
tlon. Ilut If that useful organ la accus
tomed to exhibit migratory tendencies
upon slight provocation tho land swell
will set It In motion right speedily. It ia
an insidious heaving of tho mighty deep
that ia most potent in Its cfTects on the
system when least perceptible to tho vis
Ion. To the mind that ia yoked to un
ambitious stomach it ia tho essence of In
stability. Hut, blcsa you, tho father of
tho uhip shapo young woman is not both
ering Ida mind with tho logic of tho situ
ation as ho makes suspicious haste to gain
tho door of his stato room I And the
charming wearer of tho Jacqueminots
nnd tho fore-and-aft cap whoro, ohl

This melting away of tho Invincible
beforo an enemy that can hardly bo felt
and is not seen nt nil, fills you with an
extraordinary estimation of yourself, see
ing that It la tho first voyage of your lifc
timo. You paco tho deck with firm, en

salt sen brcezo, smito your chest and

aponds that It Is all nonsense.

Illustration. Whou I set out on my first
voyngo I woro on my head n bonnet sur
mounted by 11 splendid ostrich fenthor,
worth at least $20. Wo wero only two
hours out when I began to fool sick I
had heard bo much nbout seasickness,
you sec Finally, whon I was hardly
nblo to hold up my head, I went 011 deck,
thinking tho brcezo might rovlvo 1110. I
hadn't gouo thrco steps from tho cabin
doorwhenn sudden gust of wind whirled
my bonnet, feather and all, Into tho sea.
If you woro n woman you would under

and such 11 feather torn olf your head
and given up to the mercy of tho wnvea.
Out what was tho result? In my excite

longer seasick, mid I haven't boon son

crossed tho ocean nlno times. It nil de

Tho supper la bountiful, well cooked
nnd elegantly served. You do It amplo
Justice, Then you go on deck. It ia
dark mid tho last light la loft Tar behind.
Then has been 110 perccptlblo freshening
of tho breeze, nnd yet thcro Is n disngroo
ablo motion of tho vessel for which you
nro utterly nt n loss to nccount. It
makes you dizzy to walk, so you sit
down. It makes you dizzy to sit down,
therefore you stand up. This makes
you dizzier yet, and all nt oncu tho truth

Tho morning of tho second day la plea8
nut nnd tho laud swell having appar
ently disappeared with tho laud itself,
thcro la a fair showing of passengora nt
tho breakfast tablo. Nobody has been
sick; everybody retired early, that Is all.
Tho captain sits hi stnto at tho head of
hla tablu, and tho first olllcer beams with
a roso in hia buttonhole at tho head of
Ills. Ilut in front of the captain's pinto
Is a splendid bunch of Jacqueminots,
nnd tho conclusion seizes upon you that
they wero originally of thu same, bunch
whoso other half Is still worn at tho
breast of the ship shape young woman.
Moreover does not tho young woman
herself sit on tho captain's right nnd her
father on his. left? And nftor breakfast
nro not tho girl and her father allowed
to stand a full hour on cither sldo of
tho captain in tho pilot house?
At dusk tho wind risca, and so docs
tho sea. Tho capo la two hours ahead.
Promptly nt II p. 111. thcro Is a flash on

This la 11 Cnpo Huttcroa sea. Tho City
of Rome would plow through It with
hnrdly a shiver, whllo tho Yemasscc,
with equal safety to her crew, rides over
It aa gayly na a cocklo shell. In tho
morning oven tho seamen admit that
the weather Is "choppy." Having passed
the cape, tho vessel's course Is changed
from due south to "sou'west by west,"
und the wind ia squaro in her teeth. At
tho breakfast tablo the law of gravita
tion la temporarily suspended. Crockery
dances about recklessly and the milk
pitcher goca promenading with thesugar
bowl. Nothing can shako tho determi
nation of tho young lady from Nassau,
who sits opposite you. She woulil oc

its head and clicked its heels together.
Sho despises mutton chops, but she ab
stractedly cnti yours, which tho caprices
of a Capo Hattcras sea onablo to change
placca with her steak nnd onions.
Still tho wind rises, and so does tho
sea. At noon tho motherly ohl lady,
who has apimred thoughtful for somo
hours, grows very palo mid says sho feels
"But, madaiuo, it's nil In your mind.
You should ouerciso your will power."
"You forget, sir" hor reply Is per

foot long. For u panel proceed na fol
lows: Cut four pieces 10 feet long, nnd
lay them down on a smooth surface, ad
justing just as you wish tho spaces to bo,
say tho bottom space 4 Inches; tho Bpaco
between bottom plank and tho next one,
5 inches; tho next 7 inches, tho next
Bpaco 8 iucliea With four plunks this
will make tho panel 4 feet high. Now
aaw three pieces, each 4 feet 8 Inches
long, and nail 0110 across each end of tho
panel, leaving tho pieces of the panol
projecting 0 inches; mid tho other pleco
across the middle. Each cross pleco
Bhould project 4 Inches ubove mid below
tho top mid Iwtloni plank.
Now for the support. Cut two pieces
nbout five feet long; cross them bo ns to
form n figure like the letter A, nailing a
piece ncnH.s the legs about eight or ten
inches ulxive the feet, according to tho
height of the Kiuel. These pieces ahuuld
bo bo crossed at the upier end that a V
will be formed about two inches across
tho top of the V After nailing secure
ly together, saw tho Bides of the V
straight down mi na to form u slot four
Inched deep mid two inches wide. Cut
a rorretqioiidhig slot in tho mlddlo of tho
crosa piece below.
These slots uro to receive tho ends of
panel, thu latter locking or tapping each
other hlx inches. Three inch wire nails
are best to put it together with. Of
course the panels may bo made higher
