The Dangerous Age.
If a man is going to commit a
crime during his lifetime the
chances are that he will do it at
the age of twenty-nine. It is a
curious fact that statistics have
shown that man is more danger
ous at this period of his life than
at any other. The majority of
criminals in the state of New
York have for some time been of
this ago. The general supposi
tion is that a man has attained
the highest development of their
mental and physical powers at
twenty-nine , and they are sup
posed to be able to distinguish
between right and wrong and to
realize the consequences liable to
follow the indulgence of either.
Next to the age of twenty-nine
the greatest number of criminals
have been twenty-one , twenty-
seven or forty-five years of age.
The intervening years , in which
men do not commit as many cimcs ,
have not been explained by ex
pert criminologists who havi
made investigations proving tin-
above statements to be true and ; 1
who are still working on a solu
tion of the problem. New York-
Hurried meals , luck of exercise arc

A Desperate Chance
BY J. C. PLUMMER.

Wo wore standing , or nil her , sit
ting nnd lounging out the dogwatch
on the Novn Scot inn hark IVtrel. It
was ono of thofct1 periods which fits
into the hard cheerless lifo of the
Penman like u piece of mosaic. A
period when the faithful trade winds
iill the snils until they went modeled
out of marble nnd when one nerd not
liiy hand on the braces once in 'H
hour ? .
When , Mm Homiolt spat his quid
j over the rail wo composed ourselves
for n yarn for Jim , in his fiO years of
; lifo , a brine-pickled and xvhiskey-
| soaked life , had seen much.
| "I came ashore in Charleston from
u lime juii-or once , " ho began , "and
eel about getting rid of my money as
fast as I could. 1 found a plenty to
help me spend it , and one day I stood
in Murphy's hoarding Itouso without
( enough to buy a drink and was xvon-
1 dcring when thul red-nosed Irish-
1' ' mini would kick mo out on ( ho street ,
jit was between cotton seasons and
lihcrc were no square-riggers in port ,
1 while the coasters had their crews all
engaged for the round passage. 1
couldn't get a ship for love or money.
"J was standing with my hands in
I my pockets and my hack to the bar
for 1 hated to sco the stuff going
down other people's throats when 1
hadn't the price of a half glass. A
man came in from the street and 1
looked at him out of the tail of my
oyp mill then stared back at the
street. Jle was surely neither a sea
faring iian ) nor u shipping master
and I felt little interest in anybody
t'l.-o. The man looked around the
! room and came over to where I was
" ' \Vant a ship , my lad ? ' ho said.
"J told him I did and hloomin'
jad , too.
" 'Well , ' ho says , "t can give you a
jorlh on a steam yacht. Twenty-j
live dollars n month , only quarter-
nastcrV work to do and going to a
warm climate. '
"He needn't have said all that.
I'd have taken a job as cook on a
mud scow right then , so 1 says
"Then ho treated nnd , boys , 1
never seen a man drink like that fol
low in my life. lie had everybody
in the place drunk from .Murphy
down when we started for the
wharves. 1 don't know whether 1
walked or went in a balloon , but
when I woke up next morning and
crawled on deck with a hornet's nest
buz/ing in my head we were outside
of Charleston bar and a steaming
south. The steamer was about fiOO
tons , sharp built in the hews anil
looked good for speed but nothing
like a yacht.
" 'What sort of a bloomin' yacht is
this anyway ? ' says 1 to the first , man
r mot on tlie forecastle.
' "Vacht , nothing/ says ho. 'I
s'pose you thought you were to take
care of Foino meelonare on a voyage
for his health to the West Imlces.
Ycr on a bloody filibuster , hid , car
rying guns to them lousy patriots
'that's ' u fightin' for liberty and free 1
garlic in Cuba. '
" 'Well , ' says I , kind of cocky like , '
'what's the diU'ercnco whether you're '
cnrryin. ' cotton to n bloody Liverpool
spinner or guns to Cuban patriots ? '
" 'Just this , ' says the man , cooly ;
'if you miss the patriot the Span
iards ' 11 twist your neck for you. '
"However , it's all the same to a
sailor whether his neck is twisted by
a rope or is broken by a fall from
"Wo steamed south at a good rale
and so far no one forward knew as
to where wo intended trying for u
i landing but when wo found that the
course laid would bring us around
Cape JIaysi wo knew the south coast
was our destination. We cleared the
capo all right without sighting a
Spanish vessel and then steered
southeast. After a day and a half
good steaming wo checked speed and
began to loaf , the news coining for
ward by some leak or another that
- wo would land our guns at u point
agreed upon between Sagua and Clai-
'fUp to this time f had not felt
uneasy about getting my neck twist t-
ed. I felt sure the skipper ! get or
the blind side of the gunboats anii
land his cargo. IIo looked like a
iimn who'd do most anything he sel
himself to do , hut now lie began t o
pour rum into his skin in a way thai
made us all dubious. All that da ]
while we were hanging about rcadi
to make a try for the land he was i
drinking like a fish and by night hi
was drunk all over.
"It was a dark night and no mis
hike. The sky was covered with ,
ilouds although theio was no ruin
nndxe had not a light visible
aboard. Making u sharp turn wo
stood jin for the laud. I passed the
skipper as he canio from the cabin on
his way to the bridge and he smelt
like a newly-tapped nun barrel.
When there's ticklish work to bo
ilono with a craft I'd as liuvo the
skipper'd be sober and I kinder felt
my neck once or twice aa if there was
n rope about it. Wo oaino steadily
in , not it sound hut the pounding of
the screw and we a squinting into
the dark and seeing nothing. Then
there came out of the blackness it
Hash , a boom , and ( ho hiss of some
thing oxer the forecastle.
" 'A gunboat , by heavensMMrcch -
Ptl the male.
"Jing a jir.g went the signals
from the bridge to the engine room
and the steamer slewed around and
maile for the open sea. How that
propeller did pound and how this old
ton kettle did jump over the water.
"Mash , boom , siss , another shot
skipped over us amidships but wo
were soon out of gun range. Wo
couldn't , however , steam as we did , ,
gink the infernal lights the gunboat

carried. Like a dog after a rabbit
the blooming steamer changed her
course as xve did ours and came nil-
i. . . '
ing after us.
I " 'I believe the bloody dagoes can
.smell our trail,5 muttered the male.
Suddenly I lions came u iiiuflled noise
from below and instantly xvo heard
the skipper shrieking doxvn the tube
to the engine room. Speed at once
slackened and then it xvas whispered
that we had bloxvn out a valve and
that the engine was .disabled.
"The hkinncr gave some orders to
the mate short and sharp like pistol
shots and then the bell jangled a sig
nal to the engineer. The mate
sxvung himself over on the fiddloy
house and then rushed aft , giving
some order to the man at the wheel.
Then he sung out to us to place
lights in the rigging and also to the
slcxvard to light up the cabin.
, "When this had been done the vessel -
sel had turned about and xvas heading
ing right for the gunboat.
i "We looked at each other xvith
pale faces. The only xvay xvo could
explain this move xvas that the skip-
1 per had given up all hope of escaping
and for spite intended smashing into
[ the gunboat. We MIXV him on the
bridge erect and apparently as cool
as ever staring straight ahead at the
xvarshij ) .
"The two ships ncarcd each other ,
we steaming as fast as our broken
loxvn engine would let us and when
xvo came in hailing distance the dago
yelped at us.
" 'British steamer Falcon , ' replied
our skipper , coolly , 'from fiuracoa to
Noxv Orleans/ and then he added ,
' thuro's a steamer ahead of you xvith
no lights up. She's right in your
course and you might run into her.
1 came near doing so. '
'Bless your soul , the dago sxvul-
loxvcd the bait as n shark docs a
block of pork and steamed ahead
like mad. We wore bhip and ran un
der the lee of the Isle of Pines and
patched up our engine. The next
night we landed our guns as easily
as wo would have a cargo of rice in
Katherine docks , "
