Girl Workers Who Win Out
The Stewdardess Finds that Willing Hands and
a Pleasant Smile Pay Well
By JANE M'LEAN.
The steamer was large and the
duties were many. . There were ever
so many staterooms to oversee
countless trays to e carried, and nu
merous errands to run. It seems
that there was no rest at all for
Christine's weary feet and no one
on the boat seemed to consideV her
at all. It was ' Stewardess, will you
come here, please?" or "1 rang for
you, where have you been?" until
Christine had a tired, choked feeling
in her throat, -
The reason she had taken the posi
tion in the first place was because
she needed a sea trip and there had
been no money. v
"It doesn't matter how you .go,"
the doctor had declared, 'just so
that you get out to sea with plenty
of rait air."
When ways , and means had been
discussed, the idea of being a stew
ardess had occurred to Christine's
old father. Aside from the! fact that
Chnstine was recovering from a.
her strong personality, the calm that
one felt at the touch of her white
hands. There was no doubt about
it she was a definite person, a woman
who would count in the world by
reason of her marked characteristics.
Gradually the doctor developed a
friendly interest in her, which the girl
at first ignored and finally shyly re
sponded to. He asked her questions
about her life-, and discovered the
reason for her position.
"And what- are you going to do
afterward?" he inquired. "You are
perfectly well now and a splendid
physical specimen as far as I can

This ''Wolf Spider". Was Caught in Ontario by a Naturaliat.
By GARRETT P. SERVISS.
Enthusiastic naturalists sometimes
itry to persuade us that spiders are
really admiraoie creatures, wnicn
should not excite any abhorrence, but
it takes a good deaf of practice, and
considerable resolution, to enable any
body to put a finger upon a spider.
There is something in the struc
ture and attitude of these eight-,
legged multiple-eyed hair-furred,
quick-darting beasts - which sends
shivers through the nerves. They
look like little demons, and only
our great superiority of size en
ables us to stand our ground in the
presence of a spider. Imagine a

The creature photographed on
this page belongs to the most nerve
racking branch of the spider race,
the "wandering spiders." The other
branch comprises the "sedentary
spiders," which build webs for traps
and they are mare amusing than terri
frying as long as they stay close
around their dens. '
But this fellow in the picture is a
"wolf spider," a name which does
not half express the horror of his
looks) and ways. He live on the
ground, is swift of foot, and can'
spring on his prey with the eye-
defying swiftness of lighting.
He is a stalker, silent, persistent
and merciless. He has eight eyes
of varying size. With six of them
he sees ahead and to right and left,
the two others are 'for looking be
hind and upward. The two propec
tions on the front of his head are'
euphemistically called "pans '' The
word "has a soft sound, but the thing
is armed with claws and sharp bris
tles, to pierce and hold victims.
There is a oair of mandibles, or
jaws, which have been compared to faces,
ice longs, - ior ineir -snapc, arm
whose points are as sharp as nee
dles, and each has a groove carry
ing a poison duct. These murder
ous implements are concealed by
long hairs when not in use.
The specimen that we are' looking
upon was' caught on a sandy beach
of the Ottawa river, in Ontario, but
it was not a man who- captured it,
but a sand wasp, who had treated it to
a dose of its own medicine, paralyzing
it with a poisoned sting, and while the
captor was dragging it off to serve
as food for young wasps, an entomo
logist came along and took possession
of the unlucky 'biter bit," which was
not dead, though incapable. of motion.

their habits the hunting, or jumping

everywhere in summer stalking flies

By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
Why, if opium giver so little posi
tive pleasure, does any sane human
being ever develop . an . appetite for
morphine or become the victim of the
opium habit? The answer is two
foldfirst, and most indirect, that ex
ceedingly few such persons ever do
form the habit. The vast majority
of opium habitues are either perman
ently unbalanced from inborn mental
defect or else were temporarily so
from wearing and long-continued
agony and distress when they fell
under its spell. It is only during sick
ness and physical discomfort, usually
during severe and incessant pain, that
opium has any chance of getting hold
upon the average human being's affec
tions. And, as rule, his interest
in it cea4es absolutely and finally just
as soon as pain or distress, which
made its deadening power necessary,
subsides and disappears.
Many a time in the days of my
early practice, when opium was out
only sure relief from agonizing pain,
can I recall hearing the victim of a
street accident, with a broken ''and
mangled leg, or a patient suffering
from the throbbing agony Of a deep
abscess, or one just recovering from
the tortures of renal colic or -gall
stones, ask: "Doctor, do I have to
take any more of that dopy stuff to
make me sleep at night? It puts me
to sleep, but I feel so mean and or
nery when 1 wake up in the morning.
Don't you think I could get along
without it tonight?"
This is the reason why, although
frobably almost every person in the
'nited States who has reached middle
life, has, with or without knowing it,
taken opium or opiates in some form
for the relief of pain, from one to
a dozen times, the total number of
morphine or opium users, according to
the most careful and competent esti
mates, is only about two in the thou
These estimates (which are and'-asin
be nothing but estimates, as no actual
records have ever yet been kept), give
the appalling total of from 150,000 to
200.000 opium users in the United
States, the former figure being that
ot an expert of the United states cen
sus bureau, the latter of the United
States public health service. Every
means possible should be adopted to
reduced this huge army of misfortune
and wretchedness, but it will do us no
harm for once to look at the situation
from the opposite point of view and
contemplate with assurance and satis-.
faction the V8,W,(XAi eitizensvwho
have never become addicted to oium,
although probably two-thirds of them
have used it at-some time for the
temporary relief of pain, f ,.
Perhaps, before going further, few-
words of explanation might be help
ful. Opium is the dried and "cured"
juice collected from nicks cut. in fhe
green head ot the poppy; usually
grown in tha sub-tropics or tropics,
as the northern poppy1 juice is not
strong enough in morphine. It is a
dark brown, sticky substance, some
thing like very dirty beeswax or black
tar soap in appearance and consist
ency. In the begioninc and. indeed.
up to about fifty years ago, the crude
gum opium itself was used directly as
m drug, either rolled into the form of
pills, or dried and ground, up with
other substances like Dover s powder,
or dissolved in alcohol and water, to
form a tincture (laudanum) or ex
tract. It Is still used in pill or pow
der form In the orient and the tropics,
and small pieces of the gum roasted
or cooked in a particular way over
a lamp are burned in the bowl, of a
tiny pipe in the famous and classic
"opium joints or opium dens.
for some fortunate reason the
smoking of opium has never appealed
much to northern and western races.
In spite of the reckless and whole
sale use which has been made of
the opium joint in recent fiction, on
account of its superb dramatic pos
sibilities, as a matter of fact only
a very small per cent . of our army
of opium eaters in this country are
addicted to "hitting the pipe." The
opium joints that exist in the United
LStates are maintained almost exclu
sively Dy ana ior oriental ana otner
tropical races, who have formed the
habit in their native country, and
their white natrons are both few in
numbers and of a class which could
very easily be spared without either
loss or regret oy tne community.
Curiously enough, baleful and hor
rible and degrading as are the sur
roundings and, atmosphere of these
opium joints, smoking appears to be
one of the mildest and most slowly
fatal of the various forms of opium
using. The doses used are so ex
tremely small that it seems almost
impossible that they can produce any
serious narcotic effect. Its habitues
live for years and years much to
the discomfort of their friends and
relatives. Indeed, it seems to require
special natural gift to become a
smoker of opium, and those who have
studied the habit most carefully are
inclined to suspect that the reason
why this form of narcotization does
not appeal much to the white opium
user is that it doesn't seem to "get
him anywhere," and-is too slow and
feeble in producing the effects which
he desires. An opium "joint, like Bos
ton, appears to be not a pce but a
state of mindl Certainly to smoke
opium for .the relief of any pain
above the level of a rather mild
toothache would be little better than
