while the parents of the child held him

that the fire In the fuprnace wa low

EVIL PROPHECY KNOCKED OUT

When the? British steamship Hyla. now
at the Bush terminal. South Brooklyn.
was In Calcutta last December being
loaded with East Indian merchandise tor
New York, a fortune teller went aboard
and tried to Induce the ship' officer to
let him foretell their future. He was
greeted with derision by all except J.
puxiey. chief officer, who told the sooth
sayer he would listen to the predictions.
The fortune teller lost his popularity with
puxley when he prophesied the ship
would go to the bottom with all on board.
The man said very bsd weather would
hit the vessel, and he even went ao far
aa to advise Puxley not to make th
voyage. When Puxley' brother officers
heard what was to happen they drove the
eer from the ship.
Not until the Hylas entered th Medl
:erranean did the vll prophecy recur to
the ship's officers. The vessel scarcely
had cleared the Sues canal when un
usually severe weather set In. It lasted
several days, and the longer It continued
the more uneasy became those who knew
what had been said by th fortune teller.
The ship labored heavily, but reached the
Straits ot Gibraltar aafely.
On January M. when In mld-A'Iantlc
another storm arose that lasted for seven
dsys. The wind blew with great force.
and huge sea swept the vessel. Again
the fortune teller prediction loomed up.
At time th Hylas was burled by enor
mous waves, and the damage that was
being done by tons of water that washed
aboard . worried Huxley and the other of
ficers. All who knew of the forecast of
th vessel's doom began to be alarmed.
"Only one thing saved us." said Puxley.
'This ship had flush decks. A th water
came aboard It ran off quickly. Had
there been a high rail to atop It th for
tune teller's prediction would have come
true. We don't deny we were In a pretty
baa way for a week, and every time the
ship took a big sea we wondered bow
much longer we could last."
Extensive damage waa done to the ves
sel, and three sailor were Injured. The
cabin of the chief engineer waa smashed
In, the bridge railing was swept away.
and doors of all the officers' cabins amid
ships were broken.
Daring work by Robert Flood, chief en
gineer; James Daley, third engineer, and
the ship's carpenter saved th ship from
foundering. In the height of the storm
they lashed themselves together and
placed an iron door against the chief en
gineer's cabin, where tons of water were
pouring In. It was feared the force of
the water would breaM the cabin bulk
head and wash away the superstructure.
Had the bulkhead gone the danger would
have been great. Puxley saved a seilor
from being washed overboard. Th man
was at work on the forecastle when the
ship dipped suddenly, and a big wave
burled th forward part of the ship. Th
chief officer caught the sailor a h was
carried past him. at th same time hold
nig on for his life to a stanchion. New
