PAY FEES OB SUFFEB
TIPS THAT MUST BE GIVEN ON THI
BIG OCEAN LINERS.
The FaiteDger Who Seek * to Evade THI
Sjitem of Mild Blackmailing Has HI
Life OB Board Made Miserable by tin
Employee * of the Steamship.
The fee system is more rigidly en
forced on a big passenger steamshi ]
than anywhere else. It is one of th <
places where servants demand their fee :
and tell yon the amount that they thiul
yon ought to give them. While th <
waiters at restaurants and hotele expoc
fees for their services and will hint anc
may perhaps make it embarrassing foi
you if they are not paid they hav <
not gone so far as to tell yon that the ]
ttant a fee and prescribe the amount
Even porters do not do that. They comi
around , brush your coat and hat am
run the -whisk over your trousers , bu
it is seldom that they ask you for an ]
money , let alone a specified amount.
On the passenger steamers the stew
ards regard their fees as a matter o :
right as much as the steamship com
pany regards your passage money. It ii
possible to avoid paying the fees , a :
they are not collectable by law , but tin
passenger who does not pay them wil
have trouble in getting his luggage oil
the steamer , and it would be well fen
him to keep off steamers afterwarc
where any of the servants of that boat
The stewards seem to have some sorl
of fee guidebook or black list of passeu
gere who do not give fees , so that the )
can make them suffer on future trips.
Certain fees are regularly fixed and ex
pected , irrespective of the cost of th (
stateroom or the style in which a mar
travels , while certain other fees depeuc
on the style. For an ordinaiy passeugei
there are fees to be given to the state
room steward , the saloon steward , the
deck steward , the smoking room steward
and the barber and bath man.
The fee to the steward who looks
after your stateroom is about 10 shil
lings. The steward who waits on you
at the table should receive the same fee.
The deck steward , for bringing yon an
occasional drink and looking after yom
steamer chair and rugs , expects 5 shil
lings , but be will take half a crown.
The smoking .room steward expects 5
shillings , and if yon are in the smoking
room a great part of the trip he feels
that he is entitled to as much as the
stateroom steward or your waiter. A
bath every day on the passage can be
had for a 5 shilling fee.
These rates are fixed by long custom.
The stewards can tell whether or not a
man understands the rates and if he will
pay at the end of the trip. If they do
not think that ho will , they give him
hints from time to time until they get
some assurance on his part that he
recognizes the obligation of the fee sys-
tem. If they think he will not pay , bo
will have a hard time of it. He will
find that his stateroom is not well made
up : that he does not get care when he
is seasick ; that he is served last at the
table and does not got the things that
he ordered ; that the wrong drinks and
cigars come to him in the smoking
room , and that his steamer chair is con
stantly lost. The servants are as effec
tive as seasickness in making a man's
These fees are not to be paid until
the last day of the trip. The servants
very speedily find out at which place a
passenger is to get off. If making his
first trip , they are pretty sure to know
it. It is advisable for him in that case
to tell his stateroom steward and his
waiter that ho will give them the regu
lar fee at the end of the trip if they
servo him properly and that if they do
not they will not get a penny. If he
tells them this in the proper way , ho
will get as good service as the man who
is well known.
The last laorning of the trip the state
room steward comes round for his fee.
If the passenger does not offer it , the
steward suggests that it is customary
to give him a fee , and that the regular
fee is half a sovereign. If anything less
is offered him and ho thinks he can get
a half sovereign by refusing to accept
less , he will at once hand the proffered
sum back and say in an insolent way
that he never takes less than the regu
With mauy passengers , particularly
women , this remark and the tone ex
tract the 10 shillings. The saloon stew
ard does the same thing. The stewards
work in with each other , and if a man
succeeds in avoiding the stateroom stew
ard the saloon steward will ask him for
both himself and the stateroom steward.
As a man cannot get off the ship until
it stops , there is no way of escaping
these demands , which will be repeated
Juring the last day of the trip until the
passenger succumbs. Now York Home

VISITING A SHRINE.
tit&ntenant Bnwllnson'i Daring Entry Inta
the Sacred City of Kum.
ECHO , a walled city of Persia , ranks
eeoood to Meshed in sanctity , on ac
count of the famous shrine of Masuma
Fatima , sister of the Imam Kiza , a fa
mous saint of the Mohammedans.
While Lieutenant Rawlinson was on
his way to Teheran he heard much of
this sacred city and the glories of- the
shrine , which , it was said , no Euro
pean had ever entered. Death , so rumor
whispered , would bo the portion of the
audacious infidel who should be discov
ered within its precincts.
To a young and ardent spirit a danger
ous adventure is an irresistible attrac
tion. Young Rawlinsou determined to
visit the shrine. Disguised as a Persian
pilgrim , thoubands of whom annually
journey to the sacred city , he joined the
crowd of pilgrims. His knowledge of
Persian and of the customs of the coun
try enabled him to pass undetected
through the temple gates and to make
his way to the tomb of the saint. The
guardian gave him the customary form
of words arid he repeated them.
But his curiosity almost caused his
detection. Attracted by magnificent
suits of steel armor which hung on the
walls , ho was gazing at them , when
suddenly he found that he had turned
his back upon the sacred shrine where
in the saint was entombed.
A thrill of alarm startled him , but
the discourtesy , impossible to a "true
believer , " had not been noticed. If it
had been , there would probably have
been no further career for the young
lieutenant , who subsequently became
the decipherer of Assyrian and Babylo
nian inscriptions and texts , and died the
renowned orientalist. Sir Henry Raw
linson. Youth's Companion.
MATES OF GREAT MEN.
The Wives of Both Disraeli and Gladstone
Once when Gladstone was making an
outdoor speech it began to rain. Quietly
Mrs. Gladstone , with her sweet , moth
erly face , and who always accompanied
her husbnud , stood up , and , opening a
domestic looking umbrella of the Gamp
species , held it over him The spectacle
which the old couple presented there
standing together was so touching and
appealed so thoroughly to the good feel
ings of the crowd , because of the strik
ing picture of Darby and Joan domes
ticity , that when a burly costermonger ,
who had been loudest in his catcalls
and hooting of Mr. Gladstone up to
that moment , suddenly shouted , "Three
cheers for the grand old woman ! " every
one responded with a will.
Lady Beaconsfield showed similar de
votion to Gladstone's great rival on
more than one occasion. She , too , was
devoted to her husband , and many old
parliamentarians recall the story of how
after having had her hand terribly
crushed in the carriage door while driv
ing down to the house of parliament
with Disraeli she refrained from utter
ing a cry or from saying a word about
her injury lest his mind should be divert
ed from the great and important speech
which he was to deliver that night. It
was not until he reached home and
found the doctor at her bedside that he
was made aware that she had sustained
any hurt. New York Herald.
Dancins : Birds.
One of the many strange sights on
the plains of southern Africa is a party
of waltzing ostriches. Their queer an
tics have been described thus :
"When there are a number of them ,
they will start off in the morning and
after running a few hundred yards will
stop , and with raised wings will whirl
rapidly round till they are stupefied or
perhaps break a leg. The males pose
also before fighting and to make their
court. They kneel on their ankles ,
Dpening their wings and balancing
themselves , alternately forward and
backward or to one side or the other ,
while the neck is stretched on a level
with the back and the head strikes the
sides , now on the right , now on the
left , while the feathers are bristling.
Ihe bird appears at this time so absorb-
3d in its occupation as to forget all that
is going on around him and can be approached
preached and caught. The male alone
niters a cry , which sounds much like
m effort to speak with the month shut
iight. ' '
Discovery of the Home of Bnddha.
Far away on the border of Nepal the
aome of Guutama Buddha has been dis
covered. Buddha lived about 500 B. C.
md was the sou of the rajah of Kapila-
? astn. A pillar , inscribed by the Em
peror Asoka in the third century B. C. ,
narks the city's site. The ruins are all
) f brick and are covered with jungle
md so extensive that their exploration
ivill require years. The city was de
stroyed during Buddha's lifetime. It
ivas a mass of ruins in A. D. 410 , when
; ho first Buddhist Chinese pilgrim made
lis way thero. The buildings that are
low being excavated are older than nny-

A remarkable tale of human fecnndi-
; y is told by the London Daily News.
\n Italian peasant woman named Gra-

thildreu. She began with a single
laughter , followed by six boys at a

riplets twice and four at a birth. After

vomen , to single babies and twins , but
