mournful cry that thoro aro no moro

merchant service Tho navy still shipd
seamen nt wages ranging from $10 to
$24 per mouth, but it also ships n host
of artificers, mechanics, firemen nnd
whatnot nt wagos somotimes exceeding
$70 per month.
Tho now navy ns it grows will nood
an increasing number of men iu these
special classes. Thoro aro nearly as many
now vessels building as thero aro wood

that is nddod to tho navy creates on in

thoro nro some scores of machinists at
$70 per month, boiler makers at $00,
blacksmiths nt $50, plumbers nt $45,
water tenders, oilors, firemen nnd print
ers at from $30 to $40 per mouth, to say
nothing of coppersmiths, shipwrights
nnd coul passors at wages varying from
$50 per month down to $33.
Tho soainnn class, tho worst paid of
all in its lower branches, is very well
paid in tho higher ranks. Tho lad that
enters ns a third class npprontico at $0
per month may reasonably hopo to bo
come chief master nt arms at $85 per
month. Tho lad with n gift for musio
may easily find himself transferred to
tho special class that ineludos musi

Thcro is a special provision of law to
cucourago good men to remain long iu

vision auy honorably discharged man
who ro-enlists within throo months
from tho date of his discharge returns
to tho navy with his pay raised $1 per

enoh re-enlistment, and thoro may easi
ly be half a dozen ro-oulistments, or for
that matter n dozou. It means that a
good man who sticks to tho servioe for

It usually happens that tho man who
thus enlistH and ro-cnlists has reached
the grado of petty officer nt his third or

It is truo that mechanics iu tho navy
roceivo nominally smaller wages than
men of their trades ashoro, but they nro
subject to none of tho uncertainties of
business. Tho navy goes right on in
times of panic, and thero is no docking
for illness. Employment and pay aro
soouro for tho rest of a man's days, and
promotion is almost within his own
Tito aristocratic- organization of tho
navy doubtless has kept many self re
specting nativo Americans from enlist
ing, but tho scrvico is vastly moro
democratic iu practico than iu theory.
True, no enlisted ninn may hopo to bo
como n commissioned officer, but tho
enlisted man of tried nbilitynnd known
good conduct nlwnys enrns tho respect
and tho consideration of his superiors.
Tho brutal officer of tho deck is almost
unknown in tho United States nnvy, and
tho self respecting enlisted man is sel
dom mado to feel that any ouo looks
down upon him.
His food is wholesome, clean nnd
abundant, nnd tho officer of tho deck
must tur.to it beforo it is served to tho
men nt nny meal. His quarters nro hot
ter and better as tho navy improves, and
tho privilege of tho woll ordered sea

department holds out us nu inducement
to men that think of enlisting tho pros

Jack Tnv's cynical comment when n re

But tho soaman whoso own conduct
does not curtail his "liberty" may Bee

most staid inmates of tho wardroom. A
mail's reputu iu this regard is not left
to mere chance, but is matter of careful
record. Tho mnn who can iiiako up his

discipline and regularity finds tho navy
agreeable, interesting and profitable.

tcrites WlttiPincit In Itoroeo, Where These
Animal Aro Most I'lcntlfnl.
Tho groat island of Borneo is the
homo of tho orang, and ono of tho most
noticeable features of tho landscape is
tho nests of tho orang, which aro scat
tered about thickly among tho tall trees.
From their number ouo might got a
greatly exaggerated impression of tho
plontlfnlncss of tho spocies unless it
wore understood how nnd for what pur
poso these roosting places wcro con
structed. Tho apes nro greatly annoyed
by flies, front which they nro ablo to
protect tho front part of their bodies
with their hands, but they cannot keep
tho vicious insects from biting thorn in
the roar, and so thoy gather a quantity
of leaves and branches and mako them
into couches to repose against among
A protection of this sort serves very
woll for awhile, but presently its mato
rial begins to decompose, and tho decay
ing leaves attract tho flics which tho
orang is so anxious to get rid of. Thou
ho is obliged to mako another nest of
fresh stuff, and so ho may require a doz
en of them in tho courso of tho year.
Inasmuch as ho does not tako the troublo
to romovo tho old ono thoy remain to
adorn tho tree top in which he swings
about. Orongs havo a curious method
of fighting. In their conflict among
themselves, which aro frequout, their
effort is always to soizo tho Augers of
their adversaries and bito them.
It is owing to this method of battlo
thnt it is almost impossible to procure n
skin which does not lack some of tho
fingers. If defending itsolf against a
man, tho orang will always attempt to
grasp tho anus of his human opponent,
so ns to chow off his fingers. For this
purpose its jaws aro excellently adapt
ed, being euormously powerful and
equipped with hugo incisors.
To protect itsolf from tho rain tho
orang crooks its arms over its hoad. Tho
hair on tho orang's upper arm points
downward, tho apparent purposo being
to shed tho rain liko a thatch whon tho
attitude thus described is assumed.

Horton of St- Paul. "I used to bo a lo
comotivo engineer up in tho northorn
part of my state, and ono day I had an
opportunity to tost tho spood of this an
imal. I was running a light freight
train, and in coming around a curve
saw a big mooso standing directly on
tho track. As soon as tho animal saw
tho engino ho took to his heels right
down tho path between tho rails. For
about four miles wo had a porfoctly
straight track, and as I had heard of
tho groat spood of this animal I deter
mined to test its ability. Tho gait of the
mooso was a sort of trot, such only as a
mooso con oxhibit, his paoes being about
two rods in length. At first it was only
a littlo jog, but as tho engino began to
gain speed tho mooso lot himself out
Faster and faster sped tho engino, but
still tho frightened mooso trotted in the
van, and all tho mysterious power of
steam could not prevail upon this mon
arch of tho forest. At last after wo had
covcrod tho four miles, turning a curve,
wo camo upon a gang of section hands
who woro fixing tho track. Tho sight of
these mou frightened tho moose from
tho track, and ho was soon lost to view
in tho forest" St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Quaint Old White Meeting; House.
In tho midst of tho prevailing erase
for odd and bizarro styles of arobiteo
turo it is pleasing to come across a plea
for tho simplo and homely buildings
such as contented our forefathers. Wil
liam Henry Bishop, in an artiolo in
Tho Century, in which ho gives his ex
perience whilo searching for a summer
homo in upper New England in the
form of on abandoned farm, says: "Two
small white meeting houses show their
Christopher Wren steeples complacent

country meeting houses aliko seemed to
