Uncle Sam's Representative.
Senator John Sharp Williams tolla
of a negro lad In a southern town who
was not tho least zealous of Undo
Sam's servants One day when tint
mall bag for that town was thrown
ft om tho train tho pouch was caught
up by this dlinliiutlvo courier, vvlm
htnrtcil olf, as was his wont, on a brlBk
tint to tho poatolllco.
As he vvaa rounding a corner of tho
station ho oncnnntoieil a turgor boy,
with the result that tho llltlo courier
was upset. When tho latter got up
itml i ('adjusted himself he tut tied upon,
tho other oxclaiinlng:
"Look heah! Yo' waiitn to bo kcer
fill 'bout ills chile! When yo' Jars mo
.M' Jais do gov 'mont of do United
States. I caules do mall!"
rior class of men will bo atliactcii to tins voca
tion whcio so much must needi. depend upon
tho individual. And. by the way, piob'tbly very
few of our readers know that the United States
Life-Saving Set vice la tho largest as well ns tho
most ofHelcnt in tho woild. Like tho firemen
In our cities, they are on duty all tho time and
they risk their lives every time they go to a
wreck. Hut, for that matotr, If tho snrfmen did
no more than discharge tho duties of their "night
patrol" on tho lonely storm-swept beaches they
would have to their credit moro hazardous and
more arduous work than almost any other class
in tie? community
The senpo of the relief work of the American
Life-Saving Service is expanding all tho while.
During the past year tho life-savors rendered aid
In the case of nearly 1,500 wrecks and thanks
Inrgcly to the aid of these biavo and experienced
men only seventy-four out of this largo number
pi oved to bo a total loss. Menhiircd In dollars
und fonts, tho hervico rendetod by these fenr
less men was even greater In tho wrecks of
tho past year thoro was involved pioperty, In
cluding vessels nnd caigocs, to the total valuo
of $11.SSO,000, and of tills nmoiint tho surprising
proportion of SIO.OVT.OOI) was saved. This In It
self mnkes tho two million dollars a year which
tlnclo Sam spends on his Life-Saving Soivico
seem like n pretty good investment nnd that is
without taking Into consldoiatlon the lives Im
periled on tho bhlpwrerked vessels. There v. ore
Ciliil persons on board the craft that mot dis
aster last year and tho total los of life, which
was fifty-five, would hnvo been many times that
number but for the succor afforded by Uncle
Sam's hemes of tho beaches.
rormer Governor William A. Newell of Now
Joreoy Is generally recognized as (lie founder of
tho Life-SavIng Service and he took the Initia
tive as the result of a marine disaster which ho
happened to witness during the summer of 1S39
when tho Australian bark "Count I'orasto" was
wrecked on Lung Heach. New Ieroy. Tho thir
teen memhois ot the crow, all of whom wore
drowned, might readily hnvo boon saved had
there bren at hand apparatus such as now con
stltutea the regulation equipment ot tho United
Rtntcs llfe-bavlng crews.
Tho need thus pointed out made fo forceful nn
impicaalnn upon the mind of Mr Ncwoli that ho
soon after enteied upon experiments with bows
and arrows, mckots and a shortened blunderbuss
ns n means of throwing lines to stilpii ptinnded In
positions Inaccessible by small boats Kwntt:nlly
his expoi Intents culminated In compl"to success
by tli 'ise of u mortar or enrronudo with ball and
J?G2G7ur2Y? 27ZZPOJ? J'OI? J3J&ZC2Z&3 JiZSOr
line. About tills tlmo Mr. Newell was elected to
congress nnd on tho first resolution' day of the
first session of tho thirtieth congress on Jan
uary 3, ISIS, to be exact ho introduced In the
national legislature tho measure which laid tho
foundation of our Life-Snvlng Service.
Tho national government now maintains up
ward of three hundred life saving stations dis
tributed on the coasts of tho Atlantic, the Pa
cine, the Oulf of Mexico and the Great Lakes.
Kach of these stations Is mnncd by a crew of
from six to eight surfmen hardy and fearless
fellows who aro splendid specimens of physical
manhood and who arc skilled in handling boats in
angry seas and In manipulating tho various me
chanical appliances which Uncle Snm provides
ns aids to the brawn nnd the quick wits of our
coast patrolmen In the dangerous task of cheat
ing the deep of its prey. Tor devotion to a duty
that necessitates eternal vlgllanco and the most
futigulng service tho life-savers recelvo tho mod
est wage of $00 per month Moreover they re
ceive that pay for anly nine months a year, the
crews being laid off during June, July and Au
gust, at which season severe storms and wrecks
aro almost unknown. Should a life-saver be in
jured during his summer "lay-off" ho not only
cannot get back Into the service but he cannot
under existing cnnditlo'is draw any pension or
retirement pay, no matter how many years ho
has faithfully served tho nation.
Tho vast majority of rescues effected by tho
life-saving crews nre accomplished by means of
lifeboats or eurflioats. These stanch craft, which,
as now manufactured, are almost imslnkable, are
tho Ideal vehicles for taking consldeiablo num
bers of persons from Imperiled vessels In a lltu
lted space of tlmo If the patiolinau, who in his
vigils on tho beach diFcovers a vessel ashore and
hastens to the ilfe-savlng station for assistance,
tepni'tn that the us-c of a boat is practicable eltli
oil tho largo lifeboat Is Inunched from Its wa3
In the station and pmeoeds to tho wreck by wa
ter, or tho lighter surfboat is hauled overland to
a point opposlto tho wreck and launched ns cir
cumstances may dictate. Fonnorly all of theso
boats were propelled by oars and many of them
yet nre, but lntterly there have been Introduced
big motor lifeboats, which are a vast Improve
mont in overy way over their predecessors.
OfttimcB it ship meets dlFintor In st dangerous
n position or with such a IiU'b sen running that It
Is manifestly hopoless to attempt to reach the Im
periled cruft with a smull boat Under such cir
cumstances recourse Is had to tho wieck gun
and beach apparatus with a vlovv to carrying on
rescuo work through tho instrumentality of the
biecchca buoy or tho life car. First of nil a
fchot with n. line nttached Is fired ncross the
stranded vessel by means of n powerful little
mortar or snub nosed cannon, which will hurl a
lino over a wreck 400 jnrds distant, even In tho
teeth of a gale. With this preliminary lino In
their possession tho crew of u hhlpwreckcd craft
can quickly haul out n larger lino and finally a
three-Inch hawser. Attached to the hawser Is ti
board which bears in ICngllsh on one side and In
French on tho other Instructions as to how to
make tho hawser fast to a mast, or the best place
that can bo found.
When tho shlpwiecked mariners slgnnl that
they hnvo oboyed Instructions ns to fastening tho
hawser the life-savers on shore haul the hawser
taut nnd perhaps elevate the shore end by menus
of a tripod In order to lift it vwll clear of the
water, after which there Is sent off to tho ship
a bieeches buoy, suspended from a traveler block,
or a llfo car depending from rings running on
the hawser. Only one poison at n time cnr. bo
landed by the hi coolies buoy, but fioin four to pl.x
people can bo carried ashore at each trip of tho
life car. Whichever bo tho vehicle employed tho
ttlps contlnuo until all tho Imperiled poisons aro
safely ashore, after which an Ingenious mechan
ical devico known ns tho hawser cutter Is drawn
out to tho wreck along tho ealiloway and upon
arriving at tho terminus of the hawser auto
matically cuts tho rope, allowing tho life savers
to haul It ushoro and thus preserve intact a val
uable part of their apparatus.
Ambitious Inventors nro constantly devising
now foiiiis of nparatus for tho use of the United
States life-saving crows. Indeed, these iiivcn
t oris are so rtiinieious that tlio federal r?overn
mont has folt obliged to create a hoaid of exports
whose special duty It Is to test noveltlo3 and who
hold such trials several times a year. However,
not many of the new ideas that are advanced
provo pinctlcable, for tho exacting conditions of
tlie rough and ready service involved and the
above mentioned classes of apparatus continue to
bo tho stnndbys on which our llfo-snvors place
tho greatest dependence. I low over, there has
