Tradition Governs Them Among
American and English Sailors
and TSiey Never Alter.
In the American tind KiikIIhIi navlcH,

are found nlcknnincH that have been
In uhc Hlnro before men dreamed that
there vat land on the other Hide of
the western ocean. Tradition, most
Indexible of all ruloH, jjoverriH them,
and they never alter, whether the Hhlp
clears from the Colden Mate or trom
London Docks Some of the nick
names are of obvious origin; others
seem to Kaln force by their apparent
lack of reason.
For Instance, why should all men
named Wright be called "Shiner?"
Clark Is Invariably 'Nobby"; Ureen Is
".Jimmy"; and a White Is a "Knock
er." "Spud" Murphy explains Knell,
as docs "Dusty" Miller, "lrlty" ami
"Shorty" do not need to present cards
to their mates when they nljn on,
and It Is not worth while lor the
brunette sailor to resent It when a
friendly chap hails htm as "Nigger"
ho can't whip the entire crew, one
alter the other.
The rigid forms of the (uarteideck
do not hold dining the watch below,

the Urn lieutenant Is lamlllarly

SMOKING BY THE SMALL BOY
How the Question Was Smoothly and
Easily Settled by One Wise
"The question of smoking carno up
early In our family. Lawrence has al
ways been greatly attracted by what
ho considers manly accomplishments.
If he had been brought up In a Puri
tan atmosphere, he would have sown
nn abundant crop of wild oats so
great to him Is the glamour ot tho
forbidden thing. If it savors of fash
Ion or luxury, It becomes nlmost Ir
resistible. "He was only fourteen when wo no
ticed a suggestion or clgaretto smoke
"'Have you been nmoklng, my
boy?' his father asked In a tono un
suggcstlvo of rebuke. Lawrence ad
mitted that he had. 'I should be rorry
If It stopped your growth or Injured
your heart, so that you could not go
in for athletics at college,' his lather
went on In a casual tone. '1 would
rather you did not, if you do care
very much about it. I will give each
of you hoys $100 It you will not smoke
until you are twenty-one. Think it
over for a lew days. If you decide
that you prefer to smoke, and It, alter
you have had a talk with the doctor,
you ate not alrald of what It may do
to you, your mother will tlml a place
for you to smoke.'
"A few words I rom our doctor treat
Ing the matter trom n sclcntlllc point
of view, helped Lawrence to decide
that ho would take the ?iao. Tho
other boys decided as he did; this
ended It." Woman's Homo Companion,
A fisherman from Montauk Point
was telling his friends of catching a
huge dogtlsh that had a most abnor
mal skull. Tho angler operated on his
ugly and worthless catch, and found
In tho skull all that was left of a
onco strong rubber band. Evidently
when that big UogUsh was little some
angler who had rigged up for cod or
other bottom fish had caught tho dog
around its gllla and turned It loose,
expecting tho tortured thing to die.
That recalled tho Btory of how some
fishermen not so gentle and humane
rtB tho ruling angler treat tho poor
but pestiferous dogfishes when they
nro caught. Generally thero Is an
empty beer bottlo handy, and this Is
tightly corked and tied to tho tall of
tho fish, which Is thrown back Into
tho sea. It goes to tho bottom, of
course, but the steady pull of that air
filled bottlo finally proves too much
for Its btrength, and It comes wig
gling up, tail first, only to go down
again and repeat the performance un
til the wretched thing dies. Frc
qucntly, when thero Is no beer bottlo
to be had, a piece of wood will do just
as well, or Just as ill.
Character's Commercial Value.
Character has commercial valuo
nnd sometimes men are honest ac
cording to law solely because it Is
politic, or polite, according to social
requirements because It pays. Hut the
honesty nnd courtesy of such men
nro not virtues. They aro handmaid
ens of covetousnoss. They contrlbuto
nothing to self-respect. They havo
no moral content, and servo only to
nld In bolstering up a vicious char
acteristic. However, It Is a tributo
to tho klngllness of character that,
either for Its market valuo or ho
causo of Its Inherent worth, men
clotho themselves In Its nppenranco
when they do not seek tho substance
From "Tho Sixth Sense," by
Charles H. Ilrent.
Hoping for the Worst.
"Jlmnson doesn't llko you."
"I hadn't suspected that. What
makes you think ho doesn't llko me?"
"I heard him wishing the other day
'.hot you would buy an aeroplane."
