The crew of the Elizabeth Hopkins

idly at the dusky shapes of the barges
as they dropped silently down on the
tide, or violently discussing the Iden

they "thought longingly of certain
cosy bars by the riverside to which
they were wont to betake themselves
in their spare time.
To-night, in deference to the wishes
of the skipper, wishes which approxi
mated closely to those of royalty in
their effects, they remained on board.
A new acquaintance of his, a brother
captain, who dabbled in mesmerism,
was coming to give them a taste of
bis quality.
"I never 'eard the likes of It." said
one, with a deep breath, as the skip
per concluded a marvelous example.
Voices sounded from the wharf, and
the night watchman appeared pilot
ing Capt Zingall to the schooner. The
crew noticed that he . came aboard
quite like any other man, descending
the ladder with even more care than
At first he was not very successful.
The men stared at the discs he put
into their hands until their eyes
ached, but for some time without ef

to the astonishment of his friends
passed Into a soft magnetic slumber,
from which he emerged to perform
the usual idiotic tricks peculiar to
mesmerized subjects.
"It's wonderful what power you 'ave
over 'em," said Capt. Bradd, respect
fully. Capt Zingall smiled affably. "At
the present moment," he said, "that
man is my unthlnkin' slave, an' what
ever I wish him to do he does. Would
any of you like him to do anything?"
"Well, sir," said one of the men,
" 'e owes me 'arf a crown, an I think
It would be a 'ighly interestin' experi

If anything 'ud make me believe in

"An he owes me elghteenpence,
sir," said another seaman, eagerly.
"One at a time," said the first
speaker, sharply.
"An 'e's owed me five shlllin's since
I don't know when," said the cook,
with dishonest truthfulness.
Capt Zingall turned to his sub
ject "You owe that man half a
crown," he said, pointing, "that one
elghteenpence, and that one five shil
lings. Pay them."
In the" most matter-of-fact way in
the world Bill groped in his pockets,
and, producing some greasy coins,
paid the sums mentioned, to the in

a sigh.

all, leaving him .with a satisfied air
and seating himself on the locker.
The mate sat up and looked about
him with an air of quiet authority.

to the skipper with a very passable
imitation of his voice.
"Sir." said the skipper, with a play
ful glance, at Zingall.

Zingall, who was staring hard at a
nearly empty whisky bottle on the
"And don't leave your 'baccy pouch

mate, in a thrilling whisper. .
He leaned back on the locker and
smacked his lips. There was a faint
laugh from one of the crew, and look
ing up smartly he seemed to be aware
for the first time of their presence.
"What are you doin down here?" he
roared. "What dojrou want?" .
"Nothin', sir," said the cook. "Only

"Get out at once," vociferated the
mate, rising.
"Stay where you are," said the skip
per, sharply.
"George!" said the mate, In the
squeaky voice in which he chose to
personate the skipper.
"Bring him round, Zingall." said the
skipper, irritably. "I've had enough
o' this. I'll let 'im know who's who."
Still holding him with his gaze, Zin
gall clapped his hands together, and
stepping up to him blew strongly in
his face. The mate, with a perfect
scream of rage, picked him up by the
middle, and dumping him heavily on
the floor, held him there and worried
"Help!" cried Zingall, in a smoth
ered voice; "take him off!"
"Why don't you bring him
round?" panted the skipper.
"Because I can't," said Zingall,
shortly. "It'll have to wear off."
"Wear off!" repeated the skipper.
Zingall drew himself up with a lit
tle pride. "Well, see what I've done,"
he said. "The fact is 'I was charged
full with electricity when I came
aboard, and he's got it all now. It's
left me weak, and until my will wears
off him he's captain o' this ship."
"And what about me?" said Bradd.
"You're the mate," said Zingall,
"and mind, for your own sake, you act
up to it. If you don't cross him I
haven't any doubt it'll be all right,
but if you do he'll very likely murder
you in a fit of frenzy, and he would
n't be responsible. Good-night."
"I'm going to bed, George," said the
mate, staring at him. "I feel a bit
heavy. Give me a call just afore
high water."
"Where are you goin to sleep?"
demanded the skipper.
"Goin to sleep?" said the mate,
"why, in my state-room, to be sure."
Any idea that the skipper might
have had of the healing effects of
sleep were rudely dispelled when the
mate came on deck next morning, and
found that they had taken the schoon
er out without arousing him.

could wish for a better, but while I'm

skipper, hastily. "Now keep quite

severely. "You've been drinking;

In obedience to the summons of
Capt Bradd the crew came up, and
being requested by him to .tell the
mate that he was the mate, and that
he was at present laboring under a
delusion, stood silently nudging each
other and eying him uneasely.
"But damn It all, man." said the
mate, taking a mighty grip of Bill's
collar, "you know I'm the captain,
don't you?"
"O' course I do. sir," said BUI.
"There you are. George," said the
mate, releasing him, and turning to
the frantic Bradd; "you hear that?

ly afternoon. He warned them of pub

minded them affectlngly of their du

some emotion, "as I go home to mine."
"Why, he ain't got none," whispered
Bill, staring.
"Don't be a fool, Bill," said the
cook, "he means the captain's. Don't
you see he's the captain now."
Meantime, Capt Bradd had reached
his house, and was discussing the
situation with his astonished spouse.
She pooh-poohed the idea of the po
lice and the medical faculty as being
likely to cause complications with the
owners, and, despite the remon
strances of her husband, insisted up
on facing the mate alone.
"Now you go In the kitchen," she
said, looking from the window. "Here
he comes. You see how I'll settle
The skipper looked out of the win
dow and saw the unhappy victim of
Capt. Zingall slowly approaching.
"I've come home," said the mate.
"So I see, Ben," said Mrs. Bradd,
"He's told her," said the mate to
"Children all right?" he inquired,
after another pause.
"Yes," said Mrs. Bradd, simply.
The mate pulled out an old leather
purse and counted the contents, two
pounds and a little silver.
"There isn't five pounds there,"
said Mrs. Bradd, "but I may as well
take last week's housekeeping while
you've got it out"
Before the mate could prevent her
she had taken the two pounds and
put it in her pocket.
"No, no, I want the money myself,"
said the mate at last He put his
hands to his head and began to pre
pare for the grand transformation
scene. "My head's gone," he said, in
a gurgling voice. "What am I doing
here? Where am I?"
"Good gracious, what's the matter
with the man?" said Mrs. Bradd, with
a scream. She snatched up a bowl of
flowers and flung the contents In his
face as her husband burst into the
room. The mate sprang to his feet,
"He's come around!" said Bradd,
ecstatically. "Don't you knew what
you've been doing?"
The mate shook his head, and
stared round the room. "I thought we
were in London," he said, putting his
hand to his head. "You said Capt.
Zingall was coming aboard. How did
we get here? Where am I?"
In a hurried, breathless fashion the
skipper told him, the mate regarding
him the while with a stare of fixed
incredulity. t
"I can't understand .it," he said at
length. "My mind's a perfect blank."
"A perfect blank," said Mrs. Bradd,
cheerfully. It might have been ac
cident, but she tapped her pocket as
she spoke, and the outwitted mate
bit his lip as he realized his blunder,
and turned to the door. The couple
watched him as he slowly passed up
the street
"It's most extraordinary." said the
skipper; "the most extraordinary case
I ever heard of."
"So it is," said his wife, "and what's

and what's more extraordinary even
than that, you are going to put two

Match Production in Brazil.

de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1907 was 202,041,
400, of which 189,550,000 were wood
and 12,482,000 wax matches. The
stamp revenue was $1,218,384, or about
six-tenths of a cent a box. The output
is used In the district itself. The

over $1.50 for each man, woman and

Anything that tends to enlarge hips

This should be done all the way up

The strings in the center are pulled
as tight as one wishes and tied in a
loose knot. They should never be

Our sketch illustrates a very effective way of decorating the space imme
diately above the dado with a number of small pictures, all of the same size.
This form of decoration is especially adaptable to a reading or smoking room,
and may be carried out entirely round the room. Small oak frames, ready
made, can be purchased in many of the shops at a moderate cost, and are very
suitable for framing photographs and engravings.
In the room from which our sketch was made, a number of photographs
had been framed quite plainly in this manner, and they were arranged in a
row resting on the beading at the head of the dado. Above them, and cut so
as to slightly overlap the top of the frames, a second beading had been nailed,
and held the pictures In their places. Beadlngs suitable for this purpose can
be obtained very cheaply, and for a similar decoration, of a smaller kind,
cabinet photographs look wonderfully well and make an interesting addition
to a room. Pictures or photographs so arranged In no way interfere with lar
ger pictures that may be hung above them.
Long Sleeves.
Long sleeves, even in the more
dressy blouse, will be much worn, and
this is where the clever woman in buy
ing either the ready-made or the mate
rials to make herself will seek for
novel ideas, and she will find plenty
of them. While they are all close
fitting, they are trimmed in such a
variety of ways (mousquetaire with a
soft full frill running up the outside
fold, tucks running around and going
i the entire sleeve length, frills let in, on
the outside from wrist to elbow, small
cap effect, finished in rounding points
from which depend short tassels, etc.)

suited and still be in fashion. With
these long, close sleeves, high, close

Facial Distortion a Fre
quent Fault of tfcs-
: A' .- -
Do you realize how rare it Is to ace
a stroag, quiet face? The next t.iue
you go down the street in the cars
look for one.
If there were an epidemic of St Vi
tus dance there might be some excuse
for the. distorted countenances you
see. The girl who does not bite hei
lips. and. draw in her eyes toward her
nose, arches her eyebrows (thinking
it. coquettish), or puckers her mi.uth
till one thinks of persimmons or a
gathering thread.
One would feel like laughing if it I
did not seem more to be cried over.
For much of this distorting is needless
and all is disfiguring. Oddly enough,
lack of facial repose is more noticea
ble in women and girls than in meu
or boys. Is it because the former are
more self-conscious?
There are some girls who think a
quiet face must be a stupid one, so
they smirk and jerk and shrug in the
mistaken idea that they are animated.
Forced piquancy has but one ending
wrinkles for the piquant and sneer
ing amusement for the looker-on.
Many a woman spends a small fortune
on electricity, cold packs and massage,
when all she needs is to root out dis
figuring habits. There is no wrinkle
cure known that will conquer con
firmed wrinkle-making.
Sometimes facial distortion comes
from bad eyesight or lack of nervous
control. Whatever the cause, whether
silliness or physical ills, try to get rid
of it.
Find out whether yours is a reiiose-
ful face. Your family will be only too
glad to give you the information.
Then ask their help in making it so.
You will not like that help. It grows
deadly wearing to have friends say,
just when you think yourself looking
fine: "Milly, stop squinting;" "Mar
garet, get away from that frown;"
"Don't be coy, Violet." But endure
it as you would a bad medicine.
There is no remedy too severe in
the interest of a restful face in this
day of distortions. Plain features that
are quiet as nature planned them have
more real beauty than a Greek nose, a
perfect mouth, and inspiring eyes that
are always in motion.

papers on the walls of adjoining
rooms which have wide archways or
folding doors between. These are
simple suggestions, but they mean a
great deal. The woman who is guided

results than she who ignores them.
When it is not possible to have the

laid over the long seam to hide it.
Relief for Tired Feet.
Tired feet cause an almost unendur
able pain, yet many suffer from such
merely through carelessness in not
having the heels of shoes straight
ened. You know what it is to put on
an old pair of shoes that have been
cast aside for months, and if the heels
are crooked it is almost an impossi
bility to step in them, yet one will go
on for weeks wearing high-heeled
shoes that throw the ankles out of
place. Burning feet are caused by
poor circulation. This can be cured
in a short time by plunging the feet
