The clipper ship Star of China,
owned by ihe Oolong and Howfong
line, of No. 2 Leadenhall street, Lon

passages out and home.

iron steam tanks, such as a true sailor

his heart, but which he is compelled to

And so it came to. pass that the
saucy clipper was offered for sale la
the Ignominious manner referred to
above. And the old girl looked as
though she knew she was for sale un
der inglorious conditions. She had
been dismantled. Iler topgallant
masts a nd yards had be in sent down,
her jibboom had been rigged in, and,
altogether, she seemed in doleful
dumps just like an outclassed race
horse when he becomes the property
of a cab-driver.
The eventful day came at last. John
Allan, a shipowner of the old school,
bought the ship for 15,000, and dirt
cheap she was at the price. He had a
regular fleet of old frigate-built ships
trading between Loudon, Calcutta, Co
lombo and intermediate ports, and had
amassed a large fortune.
One of the ships, the Hur Karu,
Hlndostanee for Messenger) had been
lost on the Madras coast, and, having
a great attachment for her skipper,
Capt Harris, who had made much
money for him in the past, he bought
the clipper ship for him. But, while
he put a new captain in charge, he re
tained H services of Chief Mate Phil
lips abd Second Mate Stent. These
two sailors were devoted to the ship.
They would have cried like children if
they had received their marching pa
pers. Trie mate told the new owner
that he would take two pounds a
month less for his wages, and the sec
ond mate offered a corresponding re
duction in his stipend. John Allan,
having hereditary Scotch thrift in his
system, jumped at the offer.
And so it happened that the Star of
China, under the care of Her new
skipper, fitted out for her voyage
around the cape, meanwhile taking in
her cargo, which consisted of railway
Iron, hogsheads of Maderia, cases of
rum and other liquors, crates of the
ugliest idols yu ever saw, manufact

sumption, cheaper by far tan at Hin

side, were cases of prayer books. Bi

Every night he used to snug down the
craft by taking in all the flying kites,
down even to the outer jib and the
three topgallant sails. The ship felt

Chief Mate Phillips and Second
Mate Stent were sound allies. They
had been schoolmates at King's Col
lege and had gone to sea together.
Each liked the fat old, good-natured
captain, while they were sorry to tee
the ship, whose swiftness they knew,
was being made a scow of.
But they got even at last. On the
homeward passage, while they were
threshing to windward around the
Cape of Good Hope, there suddenly
came a charming bald spot of fine
weather, a deceitful prospect, but flat
tering. An old craft called Colombo, owned
by the same fiin as the Star of China,
hove in sight, and by the curious law
of attraction that prevails in deep wa
ter, both vessels came together.
"Star of China, ahoy!'1 hailed Skip
per Robinson of the Colombo. "Come
aboard and dine. We have sucking
pig for grub, and tender it Is; likewise,
rum; and also, wine. Col. Marlborough
of the gallant Tenth, is sailing with
me for the benefit of his health, and
there are cases of 'gooseberry' ready
to be opened."
"Why, old shipmate, I wouldn't dis
appo'nt you for the world."
And now the chief mate came into
action. He was on in that piece. He
hauled up the mainsail, lowered the
jolly boat and rigged up a chair for the
fat old skipper .hoisting him up from
the main deck and loweiing him down
into the attendant boat Four appren
tices pulled the fat old man to his
chum and the sucking pig. !
In less than an hour there came a
fog so dense that you might cut big
chunks out of it with a rusty sheath
Said the mate to the second mate:
"We will lose the old man and make a
fast run home."
"We will," was the ready response.
"Call up all hands and make sail,
boatswain!" yelled the chief mate.
"Don't wait to shave or curl your
hair; we've got to catch the captain."
That sucking pig was the cause of
the Star of China beating the Colombo
forty-five days from the Cape home.
The clipper, under the care of her old
dfflcers, was kept moving all the time.
At night, as well as day, when she
couldn't carry it she dragged it. There
was no taking in of canvas at dusk.
When the ship had got home at last,
John Allan, the old Scotchman, put
two and two together. He heard of
the episode of the sucking pig. He
made a just conclusion. What he did
was to retire Capt. Harris on half-pay
and promote Chief Mate Phillips to
captain and Second Mate Stent to chief

Feeding the Children.
Many parents do not even have the
instincts as to feeding their young
that the lower order of animals have.
They do not seem to know that the in
fant, as a rule, brings its natural life
and health-sustaining food with it, but
are ready to feed it with all manner of
food which manufacturers have been
actuated to Invent from whatever mo
tive. They know the child's stomach
only as a receptacle, and are so slow
to learn that any food wi'l harm the di
gestive apparatus, because they (the
parents, or perchance, the grandmoth
er) are fond of such food. I have
known well meaning mothers to feed
their babies with mince pie, fried po
tatoes, all kinds of fruits, meats, nuts,
, and all before the child had the sign
of a tooth. And when the almost uni
versal rational artificial food (cow's
milk) has to be given, such kindness is
bestowed that the child gets all that it
wants and whenever it wants It, re
gardless of the impaired condition of
the digestive organs. Often food is
given where drink Is only necessarily
required by the fretting child. In
many instances, if not death, Irrepara
ble injury is produced by urging chil
dren to fill or gorge their stomachs
with fresh food, while a large portion
of the former meal In a decomposed
condition remains. The result of a
combination of this very common hab

The First Principle.
An English dairy journal says: The
utter disregfiid of the first principle of
butter-making correct temperature of
the cream naturally produces a soft,
oily butter containing excess of moist
ure. JCo amount of washing or maul
ing can make butter produced at too
high a temperature or over-churned
any good; while excessive washing en
tirely removes the fine aroma which all
choice creameries should possess In a
very marked degrte. Tl.e foisting of
rubbish as choice creamery on English
buyers Is aff stupid a fraud as the ship
ping of false weights and tares, and
when done to any extent, as during
the past month, simply destroys the
Markets for tte time being.
As confidence in quality is now being
restored, I look for a renewed and
much better butter demand. Butter
must be made now by the rule of ther
mometer and accurate weighing; not
by the rule of thumb nud guess-work.
It has been a remarkable summer.
In May it was as hot as August and
in August It was as cold as March. It
rained most of the time. Almost any
thing seemed an excuse for the heavens
to drip, or pour, or swash down bucket
fuls of water, as the fancy of Jupiter
Pluvlu8 was at the moment. Then it
cleared oft hot enough to cook you or
eo cold you had to drag out your winter
clothes. This peculiar Btate of affairs
seemed to agree with the insect and
reptile tribe. They flourished on other
people's poison to a wonderful degree.
There is an old German myth that
says by some chance or other a de
scendant of the Bame wily serpent in
the garden that played havoc with
Mother Eve entered into the ark. When
Noah, well protected by his mackin
tosh and goloshes, took a hasty Inven
tory of stocks he failed to discover this
cunning gentleman, who evidently in
herited the craft of his ancestor who
lived several centuries before. There
were all the Innocent tribes of snakes,
those who had never committed any
considerable crime; but Monsieur le
Serpent lay In a dark corner till they
got well under way.
Then he came cautiously forth and
began to make himself so agreeable, af
ter the manner of his worthy great
grandfather, and like that venerable
person proved such a charming conver
sationalist that the rest of the house
hold of the ark agreed It would be a
great pity to throw him overboard.
So they sailed on and on; and It
rained and rained, after the manner of
the summer of '96, till Noah became
perturbed in spirit and the passengers
discontented. , All the good stories had
been told over and over; the supply was
limited; all the old songs sung over
and over again; and quarrels and dis
putes were the order of the day. The
qualities of the dove as ari advance
agent were still unknown, and Noah
worried not a little as to the direction
and final destination of the ship. .
At last a council was held, and my
Lord Snake, in a most modest and be
coming manner, intimated he had some
experience in sailing and would be
pleased to see Noah at the close of the
meeting. . .
The interview took place. The Ser
pent owned that matters looked bad for
the occupants of the ark, but assured
Noah he could extricate the'm from
their difficulties and bring them safe
ly to land on one condition only. This
offer at first appalled Noah, but after
some hours of thought and very rough
weather he cabled his immediate family
together and laid the case before them.
The Snake had consented to act as
pilot-captain-mascot, all in one a reg
ular Pooh-Bah for the trifling reward
of a wife.
He had taken a violent fancy t,o one
of Noah's daughters, the youngest, a
beautiful girl, and demanded her hand
as the price of his efforts; the reward
not to be given till they were all on
land, high and dry.
To cut the story short, this was
agreed to. The family were all some

lurked in the bottom of their hearts
an intention to break the contract when
the danger was over. The Serpent took
the helm. The dove was sent out, and
in a little while they reached land, saw
the sun once more, and hung out their
musty clothes to dry.

councils were again held. He was

he received death at their hands. Not

Consternation spread though the

Fighting a Bob-Cat.
The ugliest appearing animal that
ever walked a log, killed a rabbit or
fought a trap is the lynx, which is Just
as ugly as it looks ten months in the
year, and somewhat uglier during the
other two. Not only will the lynx fight
anything that walks in the woods, but
it will also tackle a visitor from the
clearings, be he man or dog, or half
grown calf, If the occasion offers, says a
writer in Shooting and Fishing.
Jim Berry was hunting up in Maine
about forty miles north of Greenville,
when he and his friend came suddenly
upon the carcass of a caribou which, a
bear was eating. The bear made itself
scarce, much to Jim's regret, as he
wanted to kill a bear. Without saying
anything to his friend, he left camp the
next day and started for the carcass,
intending to watch it in the hope that
the bear would return. He waited and
watched till about 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, when he began to think of
returning to the camp. A soft footfall
back in the woods, the crafty step of
some wild animal, just then sounded
in his ears. Pretty soon the beast was
chewing the caribou meat, and Jim
could see it plainly. He leveled his
buckshot gun and pulled the trigger
when the wabbling muzzle was point
ed in what he thought was the right
direction. The beast went down, and
Jim started for it. Then he, stopped
with his mouth open.
The beast had leaped to its feet and
jumped sideways with Its back up.
Jim knew the yell, and he also recog
nized the humped back. It was a
wounded lynx spoiling for a fight. Not
having time to level his gun to Bhoot,
the man clubbed it, and the blow
stunned the cat a little, but the beast
got in a rake on the man's leg that
tore his trousers and hide, too. An
other frantic sweep of the gun barrel
laid the beast flat, and then a revolver
bullet killed the animal. The buck
shot had torn the top of the lynx's
head enough to make it angry.

Great Naturalist Declare B Bad fioam
Frank Buckland, the well-known En
glish naturalist, was the. las man In
the world whom one would expert to
be superstitious, but in a remarkabiu
letter of his, addressed to a fri nrj ct
Selhurst, Surrey, he solemnly declares
that he once saw a ghost at Westmin
ster abbey, says the New York Press.
Buckland's father was deau of the ab
bey and his son lived with him in tbe
ancient house attached to the church,
occupied by the deans for hundreds of
years. iOne night, so Buckland de
clared, he had returned home rather
late after an evening at tbe theater.
He opened the window, and sal at V;

It was to the effect that th door wiia
covered with huiran skins nd certain?

still hanglnr to it help, by th'Jr ap
pearance, to support thin assertion.
Buckland was hitting smoking and
watching the quiet cloisters, flooded
with bright moonltgbt Suddenly he
saw the darX figure of a man corue out
of the door and walk down the clois
ters. BiPk!and knew that no one
should be around the abbey Bt that
hour and supposing It w:w some in

surprise he could tlnd no one and on
trying the door .found It, securely bolt

for years. Much mystified he returned
to his room and continued to waua.
In a little while he saw the same figure,
which appeared to be dressed like a
monk, return along the cloisters and
enter the abbey by the same door.
Thoroughly alarmed, Buckland ran
down again and found the door in ex
actly the same condition and still bolt
ed on the outside. In .the morning he
Inquired of some of the old attendants
around the abbey and found that more
than one of them had seen or heard
others speak of the apparition. Some
time afterward he found among some
ancient archives of the abbey an ac
count of the beheading of one of the
monks for a terrible crime and it was
added that he was 'flayed and his skin
used to cover one of the doors leading
to the cloisters. Buckland afterward
said he firmly believed that it was the
ghost of this monk which he had seen.

in addition to the glimpse it affords of
the Temple City, the Great Salt Lake
and picturesque Salt Lake and Utah Val
ley, if affords the choice of three distinct
routes through the mountains and the
most magnificent scenery in the world.
On all Pacific Coast tourist tickets
stop-overs are granted at Denver, Colo
rado Springs, Salt Lake City, Ogden
and other point of interest. Double
daily train service and through Pullman

ver and San Francisco and Los Angeles.
