Oiling the Waters When the Seas Are
Running High
When the captain of a wave beaten
ship pours oil upon the waters he does
not empty a barrel of kerosene over
the side He has somebody stitch up
three or four cotton hags which he
fills first with oakum and -then with
oil usually equal parts of fislroll and
kerosene The hags are then tied
tightly at the tops and pricked all over
with asall needle to permltSt he oil to
exuderand are hung from he boat
davits and weather chains to drip their
contents on the raging billows The
bags must not be allowed to get emp
ty but must be refilled every two
hours For six 1ags ten gallons of
oil are used in tnirty hours Some
times if it is very cold the oil congeals
and will not run out through the boles
fast enough and the mouth of the
bag Is then loosened to let It escape
In that way Its effect Is5 magical on
a rough sea A huge comber will
arise threatening to bury the laboring
vessel under tons of watsrv but will
strike a patch of oil no larger than a
common dining table and subside In
an instant Into a smooth round swell
which the ship rides like a cork
The use of oil is also a valuable aid
in wearing ship in a gale and high
seas A few gallons of paint oil over
the lee quarter enable the vessel to
perform the maneuver in perfect safe
ty without taking a drop of water on
board When a boat ships so much
water that it Is impossible to get the
oil bags slung In position without run
ning the risk of being swept over
board an ordinary bed sheet saturated
with paint oil tied to a rope and al
lowed to float will soon calm the seas
sufficiently to permit men to move
about the decks safely Paint oil is
agreed to be the best to use rape seed
oil and porpoise oil rank next but
kerosene is not satisfactory unless
mixed with some other oil New York
When Morning Breaks Over the Very
Top of Japan
Suddenly a spark a flame and then
a burst of fire and lo and behold
the rosy morning is awake once more
on Fujis pearly crest while Japan
below is yet enveloped in the filmy
mists of night
The pilgrims fall on their knees and
bow their heads to the ground in ado
ration and with much fingering of
rosaries the plaintive cadence of their
prayers rises like a lamentation to the
heavens above
At Benares the sainted city of the
Hindoos as the sun rises each morn
ing across the holy Ganges the pray
ers of the bathing multitude are as
the roaring of the sea But even this
one of the greatest and most stirring
religious spectacles of the world is
not more picturesque than that little
band of pilgrims twixt heaven and
terth high up in the blue profound
on the very top of Japan kneeling in
praise before the great orb which is
the emblem of their empire
Never to have seen sunrise from the
summit of Fuji is never to have really
seen Japan
The kindly nature which made this
lovely land has surpassed all its other
efforts in the lavish profusion with
which it has scattered its favors
around the sacred mountain Rippling
rills and roaring rivers dancing cas
cades and thundering waterfalls
feathery woods and deep forests there
are on every side but of all these
glories the most enchanting are the
lakes which lie embosomed like flash
ing jewels among the hills
Of them all Shoji and Motosu are
the most beautiful the latter excelling
In the exquisite sapphire blue of its
waters and its dainty delicate beauty
all other lakes in Japan and challeng
ing comparison with the fairest wa
ters of the world Herbert G Ponting

to America For the mission with
which they were intrusting the lad
from the Rappahannock was exactly
that best calculated to develop in him
the sterling qualities of self control

fit him for the great task of his life

waged in field and forest on steep

George Washington was no ordinary

But nothing could daunt his spirit
and despite the continued rains the
swollen streams and the terrific winds
that more than once leveled his tent
to the ground he was constantly in
the field because to quote his own
words our time was too precious to
lose Out bright and early with
chains and instruments he worked till
night and then sought what repose he
could find Occasionally when the par
ty reached some remote settlement
there were feasting and merrymaking
but this was an exception to the gen
eral rule of hard and prolonged toil

his employ until his surveying days
were at an end Now too he was
given opportunity to indulge in the
manly sports so dear to his virile na
ture for his duties became such that
he was able to reside in one place for
months at a time At Frederick for
example he boarded in the house

tradition is to be accepted Near b I i
was another family of lusty youths
Crawford by name Every evening
when the days work was done the
Stinsons the Crawfords and George
would meet in a large open space
before the Stinson house and en
gage in trials of strength and skill
The others were far heavier than
Washington and in wrestling he was
no match for them As Hugh Stin
son when an old man used to recall
Often have I laid the conqueror of
England on his back But he was
always quick to add Yet in running
and leaping I and the rest were no
match for him
It is pleasant to note that twenty
five years after the bouts at Frederick
when he was called on to lead the Con
tinental army against King Georges
host Washingtons thoughts went back
to the friends of his hard but happy
youth and knowing their worth he
lost no time in offering them commis
sions Several among them accepted
his offer and one William Crawford
won his way to the rank of colonel and
would doubtless have been still further
promoted had he not fallen into the
hands of hostile Indians and been
burned at the stake
m such wise meeting and overcom
ing the difficulties of the wilderness
did George Washington prove his met
tle and gain knowledge that stood him
in the best of stead in his after life as
a military commander Only till 1731
his twentieth year did he follow the
profession of surveyor Then on news
of trouble with the Indians along the
frontier he laid aside the compass fer
tile sword and entered on the career
that was to enshrine him forever in
the hearts of his fellow countrymen
How Washington Looked
Washington was six feet two inches
in height nis hair was brown his
eyes blue and rather cold his skin
clear and ruddy nis nose was promi
nent In youth he was slender but
during his service in the army he
weighed 200 pounds His hands and
feet were enormous His boots were
No 10 He was broad though not
deep chested and exceedingly strong
He could lift with one hand a tout
folded about the tent poles which usu
ally took two men to put it into a bag
gage wagon He could hold a raukot
in one hand and fire It His taste ii
clothes was plain but fastidious He
was very careful about his personal ap
pearance He never wore beard or
mustache and acted as his own barber
In his old age he wore false teeth
which gave to his face in the later por
traits a severity of expression absent
in the earlier and probably more truth
ful likenesses Stuarts portraits of
Washington are somewhat idealized
Portraits by Trumbull and Sharpless
are considered faithful in most re
spects while that painted by Joseph
Wright in 17S2 was highly approved by
Washington himself The Houdon stat
ue at Richmond has generally been ac
cepted as the most accurate image of
the first president
