HENRY BELL'S COMET.
The I'M r. si Stcmiier That Piled
Hire In C.rvnt Ilrltuln.
Among tho curiosities of advertising
may surely be placed the first ad
vertisement of the first steamer that
plied for hire In Great Britain namely,
Henry Bell's Comet. Thus ran tho ad
vertisement In the Glasgow Courier of
"Steam passage boat, the Comet, be
tween Glasgow, Greenock and Helens
burg. For passengers only. The sub
scriber having at much expense fitted
up a handsome vessel to ply upon tho
river Clyde between Glasgow and
Greenock to sail by the power of
wind, air and steam he intends that
the vessel shall leave the Broomlelaw
on Tuesdays, Thursdays aud Satur
days about midday or at such time
thereafter as may answer from the
stute of tho tldo and to leave Greenock
on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
lu the morning to suit the tld,e. The
elegance, comfort, safety and speed
of this vessel require only to be proved
to meet the approbation of tho public,
and the proprietor Is determined to do
everything In his power to merit public
encouragement. The terms are for the
present 4 shillings for tho best cabin
and .". shillings for the second, but be
yond these rates nothing Is to be al
lowed to servants or any other person
employed about the vessel."
What would poor neglected Henry
Bell have said could he have seen his
humble little Comet, of whose elegance,
comfort and speed ho was so proud,
alongside a modern ocean racer or one
of the latest palatial river steamers of
the Clyde or Thames, all so well ad
vertised? Chambers' Journal.
THE CUPEY TREE.
One of (Iu Most Curinuii Ci-owtliN of
the Wfht Ii'.iUum.
The cupey, or, as It is sarcastically
called in tlio Kngllsli possessions, "the
attorney' is one of the most curious,
as It Is one of the most picturesque,
denizens of the virgin forests of the
West Indian Islands. It belongs to the
parasitical family of trees or plants;
but, terrible to relate, It Invariably,
with the basest Ingratitude, destroys
all life In tho unfortunate tree that
cherishes It In its early growth. The
seeds are borne on the wings of the
wind and deposited on the branches
of other tites, when they burst into
roots, which are dropped toward tho
ground all around the "nurse" tree.
In time these roots reach the ground
and strike Into the soil.
From this moment tho roots grow
stronger and stronger until thoy resem
ble a lot of rope ladders thrown over
tho tree. Next tho parasite sends down
a great cord, which twines around the
trunk of the supporting tree, at first as
though lu loving embrace, but It grows
tighter and tighter, eventually stran
gling Its benefactor out of existence.
The nurse tree thus killed rots to de
cay, and from the immense fibrous
roots of the destroyer now springs a
great trunk, which rises high Into tho
air. When a cupey Is full grown it
presents a magnificent spectacle, for
tho cordlike root rises often to fifty or
Blxty feet and supports In midair tho
vast treo Itself.
