A  , As far as the- people of Moyie are  cpneerhed, they are'in favor of the  manufacture and sale of intoxicating  liquors. At least that was the decision of ,the .voters last Thursday,  when out of six votes only one was  cast,in favor of prohibition..!  Very little interest was taken in the  matter., This was shown by the small  number of votes cast. At the general  electiou last" July there were 24 votes  polled, and yet out ofe this number,  on the taking of the prohibition plebiscite, only six responded. ~J  . .The result of the vote taken in the  outside precincts has not yet been  learned. It is the general supposition  that in the eastern provinces prohibition will carry, while in the west.' it  will be snowed under.

The following pen picture of Moyie  City, published in 'last week's Fort  Steele Prospector, is worthy of reproduction.' The writer is endowed with  superb descriptive abilities, and has a  thorough knowledge of his subject:  "Moyie City,.is  the pearl  of East  Kootenay,   Picturesquely .located on  one of the  most charming   lakes on  the continent, it is environed by every  favor which nature can, in its bounty,  bestow.    It   is   an   ideal   resort    for  health  pleasure  and  recreation,.   Its  future' is pledged   by such crowning  gems as the Moyie, St. Eugene, Queen  of the  Hills, Lake  Shore, St.  Peter,  Fra Diavolo and   many other  repositories of wealth  which   fairly  extend  into the Very streets of  the town.   It  may truly be   said   it   is paved  with  precious  metals.    It, seems that any  railroad  that  would . like to   handle  such good things must stop at   Moyie.  Tbe C. P.' R.   railway   has, however,  started a rival townsite two  miles  below, where the only resource is a sidetrack..   Well, we will take our chances  with  Moyie  as against C. P. R.-ville  every time."  The Catholic Church.  Work was commenced on <> the  Catholic "church building this week,  and it is now well under way. It is  20x30 feet in size, and will be artistically finished both inside and outside.  Rev. Father Welsh will have charge  of this parish and will' hold services  here about once a month."

Sampson will , get about $40,000  prize money; Dewey will get $9,000.  The pay ia these cases, is in inverse  ratio to the importance of the accomplishment.   . - >  A large warehouse will be constructed immediately at Fort Steele junction  for the accommodation of Fort Steelo  freight. A telegraph line will also be  built between the two places.  Tracklaying Nearly f lniauod.  In about five days' time the last  rails on the Crow's Nest road will be  laid. Thursday evening the tracklayers were one mile past the Goat  River crossing. It is said there is  quite a heavy wager,up on the time  the last rail will be laid, the time set  being next Wednesday at 11 o'clock.  Providing no delays occur the landing  will be easily reached by that time.  For tbe past week traiu loads of steel  have been passing through Moyie for  the western end of the line, and there  will be nothing lacking for the accomplishing of speed. M. J. Hanev is  right to the front and is personally  overseeing the work.  Hop-picking is now in full blast in  western Washington, and in a few  days it will begin in Yakima county,  and other hop growing districts east  of the Cascades, when the country  will be swarming with pickers.  Crow's Nest Landing on the Kqote'  nay is about abandoned, nearly all  the inhabitants having removed to  Phillipp's ranch at the international  boundary, where a bustling settlement-  has already sprung into existence,  The Gwendoline is to be taken up  the Kootenay river into the uppef  Columbia lake, and the Canal Will,  probably be temporarily fixed up for"  that purpose. She will run between  Golden and \Y*inder'mere next, season;  .   A Dollar for n Kls*;,.  A western traveler came up, to a log  cabin and asked for 'ii" drink, which  was supplied'by a good - looking young  woman. As she was the first wOm'an  he had seed, for several days, he Offered her a dollar for a kiss. It was  dttly taken and paid for, and the  young hostess; who had never seen a  dollar before, looked at it for a moment with s'oitie curiosity, then asked  what she should do with it. He replied what she choose/as' it, was hers.  "If tha'i's the case/' said s'he," "yoti may  take ft back/ aiid give' tiie -another  Mas.'1 ���   ;     .

Cut, for him.'.-elf, ho was a  most familiar C:gurc on the links���tall,  cent,,somewhat ono sided, an infirmity  (hat increased with years nnd rhenma-  ima, with an , angular face, clean  shaved twice a week, with a Scotch  I-cnm t fiv.c't cwry r.Lovo it,; and a short  clay pipe iiisoc-arr-ly held in tho corner  nf his mouth for lack or! teeth. Presumably ho had net been always thus,  Doub'tlcrs there, had teen n timo when  towns a bnrclcrrgrd geprecu, scamper-  ,-ing blithely with naked feet', and again  a time when ho was a epruce' joung  ' man, a favorite with the lt'?siea imiy-  he, but if such .times had ever'been it  was cxrrorr.cly herd (o picture them to  ono'a tcentar vision, cud "slowbac'i"  ,hitneelf never referred to them.  ' It wca inipcsjsible to picture him other than bo was when .first we knew him  ���shembling in gait, crooked cf aspect,  clad in lcng trousers end an inndequato-  Jyshort con't, with a wcclcn sci;rf about,  his neck, end Loctbc. at such Jcn-rth that  it seemed shsurd to euppose his toes'  could reach-tSio cud of their coverings.  Ho was a reserved man and appeared to  be without rehitivea. Wo did not trouble to inquire about his lodging,"but-  every morning hewa." to be seen sitting  on the bench lhat tho other caddies oc-  ��� cupicd, smoking his pipe and waiting  ior his master to como with tho clubs  irorn tho clr.bhouse. Then' bo would  "02rry" (be two statutory rounds cf  the links cud dirnrpcar again until tbe  follGwiDs cioicinp.

Baoka had net bo<.-n written atoui  tho game, and.rdl tbe available m'asims  vore csrric-chin tho he-ads cf those who,  liko "Slowback," made a profession  either ef playing or of. carrying olubn.  Tho masioisi wei-e substantially three,  "Slow buck," "Keep your cyo on Uis  ball" and "Don't press.'' To. these  ni'iivht have been added a fourth, ''Be  bvxj' 'gat tbia cppliedaiorti cartiaclsrL?  ���.u^iiTa- tuit:rti fi'tniit-'; Jfn"i*1'wp.s'the first  of thetnasirnfl, concerned with the more  nlcrieus busincp.s cf the drive, that was  destined to exercise an important in-  ntiroca en "Siowback's" life. There is  no doubt, of course, (hat he had another  name than this sobriquet, but it happened to none of na ever to learn it, and  the manner in which he, obtained his  appellation was as- follows: His master  ,W2fi never moro than an indifforcnt  player at the best. IIo vras conscious of  hid deficiencies, but rather than attribute them to what were pa haps their  truer oauso, of faulty eyesight or inadequate muscle, preferred to refer them to  neglect cf pozuo cf the important mtu:-  ims cf the golflug art and especially to  that first quoted one cf "Slow.back."  He conceived that ho had contracted a '  fatal habit cf hurrying the club away,  fn the back strckc, from the ball, and  that this initial error was responsible  fcr all tho mibsequent miss hits aud toppings with which the club visited the  ball on ite descent. Maybe, ho was  right. But in any caso the means by  which ho strove to euro himself cf this  fatal tendency wero to raakc his caddie,  ejaculate tho masric words of monition,  " Hlow back!'' each timo that ho prepared  io raise bin club fcr the driving stroke.  Tho result, it has to bo admitted, was  not wholly satisfactory. One can say no  mors than that, bis esocution r.:i{;ht  conceivably have been worso in the absence of the warning.  Thus it went on for several years.  At  tho end cf   that time it   happened   that  'Slow'un-eli  master���for already the  caddio had earned tho cicknauno by  which alone we hue��� him���was called  away for thren weeks cr go by tho death  of a near relative, 'then "Slowback"  carried clubs icr another master. But  the habit lhat. he had formed during  these years of ejaculating his monitory  ".'Slow back!" as his master raised tho  flub was uot to be denied. Still, at the  '.'���jcuci'nsioH of each address to the ball,:  he uttcrsd tbo solemn wordo, then found  himself 'covered with the most pitiful  confusion' at the rebuke which his uncalled for interference had merited. For,  n stroke or iy:o, putting great restraint  upon himself,' ho succeeded in keeping,  fcis soul iu silence, but at tho next the  .{uevitablc exclamation,;brcke from him  rtguin, to the distraction and despair of  the sufferer to whom it wa3 addressed.  During the thiec weeks' of his master's  abaciice several golfers made trial of  "Siowback's" services, for he was an  excellent caddie, saving bis single idio- .  Byncrasy.-.Riid regarded with a cei tain al'-. !  fectidn aa being ciar.ewbat of a ''character"-besides.. But none could suffer hiia  long. One after another had to give  him' up after being 'reduced to impotence and despair by his rn.venliko  croak. A lb length his legitimate master  returned, and "Slcwback" was a man  ngnm.

L".u;!i, Blill y'ouring l-.ix app.'ir-  ?! cf (?:ci, to r;t during the aftcniros  ou his r.ccustcmed bench with the other caddies. - In the morning ho besot  ! himself to find a"new engagement. IIo  was in receipt of a small pensiomfrom  bis late master in recognition of so  many years of faitl.ft.l service, but the  sum did net cumco to give him independence. He was scon engaged, for the  links were thronged with players.  This time his employer was a newcomer, who knew nothing of "Slow-  back's", peculiarity. IJe was nearly  jtunncd wijh surprise at what he deemed tho caddie's ini.-oler.ee on hfs first utterance of the inevitable words. Ho said  nothing, however, on the first offense,  but when it was repeated expostulated  in unmeasured terms. To his surprise,  bis rcbuko brought "Slowback" to tho  verge cf tears. Then, partly by his op-  poueut and partly by the opponent's  caddie, ,tho situation "waa cxplaiagd.  fie found himself able tojaiingle a measure cf pity with his wrath, but throughout the "round tho ejaculation, many  times repeated, in tho speaker's own  despite, spoiled his intended stroke and  led to the immediate- payment of tho  caddie, and rejection of his further cervices. ���  , Several .times during the ensuing  weeks did now ono and now another,  in ignorance or in pity, cngago tho uu-,  foj'tuasito man to,carry clubs, but in no  case could his idic-ryncraqy be endured  beyond the limits of a single round? He  made efforts that wcrd absolutely hc-roio  lo overcome it," swathing the woolen  comforter around his mouth until asphyxiation threatened him, but through  all, the folds of tho stuff came, with a  muffled lugubrionrness, the hateful gs-  clamatiou which the man would have  given worlds to have wirhheld. Do  what he would he could not rid himself  of this dfiinnosa hrercditus, bequeathed  to him, along with-his slender pension,  by his departed master. Gradually ho  grew to recognize the hopelessness of  his condition and ceased even to seek  employment. He spent his days sitting  dejectedly en the accustomed seat, growing thinner and mere gaunt as poverty  set its grip moic firmly upon him,  grateful if now and again one of his  friend? on the bench would give him a  fill of tobacco for his seldom replenished  pipe.  At length he ceased to frequent the  links altogether. For some days no cne  seemed to notice his absence. Then it  was noticed that "Slowback" had disappeared, and we began to ask questions  about him. Hi* cronies knew nothing,  only that he hud not beer- down to the  links for a clc.y or two. We inquired  where he lodged and with some difficulty found the locality. It was up a  .steep stair in a little houa. of a back  street. His landlady told us that she  feared ho was not well. For some days  be'had not left' the ho-aso and had eaten-  nest to ucthing; eaid his stomach refused food, and that he had nc appetite. We asked her whether she thought  he lacked fcr money, but the woman  said no, busing her information on the  fact, that he bad bent bia.omaU =�������>  paid up.      '  When wo went in, it appeared at once  that he was very bad. He lay on tho  bed terribly wasted, scarcely more than  a skeleton of n man. We asked whether  he had eceu a elector and being told  no sent oft for cne at ouce. He seemed  to recognize us, and a strange smile cf  pleasure struggled across his thin fcu-  ttires. Ho even tried to' speak, but tho  ouly word we could cV'ctmguisk was his  terrible ejaculation ,cf "Slow back I"  though whether ho were trying to speak  of himself thus by his familiar sobriquet cr whether he deemed himself  still "carrying" fer his old master on,  the links wo cculd not tell. Then he  relapsed into silence" aud seemed to  sleep,     t.  At length tho dorter came. He took  bnt one glance at the poor figure on the  bed, passed his hand beneath the  clothes and laid it- for a moment over  tho heart. Then ho turned to ub, with t��  grave face. "Slowback" was dead.���  Comhill Magazine.  Poisonous Tinsuo Tn tho LJlood.

Dr. Hood  gives his experience as to the value of  carbon a to of lime in the form of calcined oyster shells as a means of nrrcst-  ini; tin*, mowth of cancerous tumors,  and, although J-.f.-i opportunities tor employing it in test cases }i:jvq not been  large, th�� results attained by its use are  chisrucicrizefl as having proved satisfactory in a high degree. S-Jcveral instance3  are named in which a persevering use  of the calcined she til powder arrested  the growth and pain in tumors undoubtedly of a otmccrous character. Whevo  tin nature of the affection is early recognized, a persistent trial of this method is pronounced very desirable, among  other points mentioned i:i its favor being that of cntircharm'lessnoss and noninterference with any other remedies  resorted to for the relief of pain. The  cvster shells for this purpose maybe  conveniently baked iin a homo oven,  and the calcined white lining of the  concave shell scraped off, tho substance  thus obtained being then reduced to a  powder, and as much as will lio on a  silver quarter taken once or twice a day  in a little warm water or.tea.  ���A   I'rusiiteot's Car.  The.

"The  projected car, "it is said, "will boa  complete exposition of the. art of car  building, demonstrating to .the .world-  the surpassing excellence cf this industry in the United States, and it is to be  presented to tho nation, as a ��� tribute  from the car building fraternity, for the  personal nnd official u.'-e of the .successive  presidents of the United States.

"But why don't you accept Mr. Howard, when' he'd so'1 devoted, poor man?"1  ��� "That wouldn't-be fair, because, you  see, he is devoted, and I���no, I think a  fat man with beard and glasses is the  sort of thing���-in tho-abstract."

"Mabel, givo mo those telegraph forms. Of course I wou't undertake to carry out the contract if any on*  accepts," she added.

"Well,-seven gentlemen will hardly  be able to think that I am pining for  them all, a::d they'll exchange notes."

Aho borders of  tho shallow pond whiclr*sts a particular  attraction to Hampstead. A thia coating of ice covered the water, excepting  wlicro a littlo dog had broken through  and was ineffectually struggling to get  out-again. The. ice was. however, so  weak that whenever this littlo creature  drew its front paws np over tho edgo it  broke undor his weight and farced, him  to repeat this painful operation again  and again, until it looked na though tho  poor animal would bceomo exhausted in  his ofi'orts.  Du Msurier was in delioata hoalth nt  tho time, and, knowing that ths water  was nowlcro moro tbau tbreo feet deep,  called to tho idlers in the crowd,  "Hero's half a crown fcr tho man who  fetches that dog ashore."

Tho passing of the Crystal saloon.  Gono, hut not forgotten. Erected in  1798. Razed only n few days ago. Tho  Crystal saloon, which adjoined the Frenr  House, was for over -10 years the principal and about tho. only rendezvous for  Kporting men in this city. It was the  resort of sach well known men as' John  Ilorrissey, John Daly,'Colonel Jim Sco-  ccl and ethers. {Stories have, been told  of plays of faro when the limit was tho ,  sLy.and whcio tho checks were piled  on a card as high as tho ceiling.  .Many good stories aro told of big  games played in the Crystal. One of tho  best is of the great pc.kcr gamo in which  tho lato John Worrissey and Colonel  Jim Scoycl were the two important  players:" It was nearly CO years ago. It  wns a bleak December night. This was  beforo Scovel was cent to tho United  Stutes senate by tho Jerseyites, and  when Morrisscy was at the height of.  his prominence. It was a six handed  game of draw. The game had been lagging on for three hours without any excrement. Moirifscy was about ��3,000  winner. Bcovol was a lorer cf about half  that much. Tho1 play which made this  story came up about 2 o'clock in the  morning. John was the dealer, Kcovel  sat to his left and whs tho first man to  speak,  lb was a ��20 "jack." ���  "Pass," ' said the big colonel, never  looking at his hand.  Thei next man.did tha same as Sco-  vel, but tho player who followed him  opened it for $150, the ici/.c of the pot.  The next man stayed, the next passed,  and when it carno to Moriisf-.oy ho tilted  it .*SG0. It waa now Hcovel's turn.  TdiorG waa ��320 now in tho center. _��;co-  velwas a poker'player of the eld school.  Ho would lay down fours as quickly as  tho amateur would draw four ca'rds to  en ace when it cof-t $100, and ho would  play a. thrco caid llufh if the pot wan  worth winning at all. Kcovcl looked at  his hand when Morrisscy had finished  putting in the cheeks. Hu staved at  John for a few moments, all th'e timo  fumbling his checks, and then in a cool  way wont down in his ' insido , pocket  and pulled out n large wallet.  "I'll raise you $810," Jim said.  . The man who had opened tho pot saw  both raises, for ho sat with a nice pat  straight in his hand, and tho next fellow pnt in $1,170. Morrisscy was nonplused when it camo to him. It was at  least' 15 ' minutes beforo ho put in the  $810.���  "I'm.' in so much I might as well  stay,'' he remarked, as ho picked up the  deck.  "How many, Jim?"  "Three," answered .Scovel, "and bo*  that they are good ones."  "Oh, I'vo got 'you beat.''' chirped  John, as ho dealt cut tho required uum-  bcr.  "I'll play these," was tho answer of  tho man who held the pat straight.   -  "That's n good thing," said Morrisscy, looking in a surprised way at tho  man.  " Givo mo two," was tho order of tho  next man,- and ho got them.  "Well, I only want one, and I don't  need it ufc that,"' remarked Morrisscy,  as ho took tho top card.  Tho man who had opened was ono o��  those fellows who arc always afraid of  a ono card draw, and ho merely chipped  23 cents. Tho next man was there with  thrco aces cold, and ho throw a $50  greenback in tho center. It was now  Morrissry's turn. He had "skinned"  his hand off two cr thrco times.  "Five hundred better,'' said ho, without moving a muscle.  During tho play tJcovel had been leaning back in his chair watching his opponents. Tho "gallery, " which is the  nam0 used for the spectators who congregate around the table, was moro excited than the players. The center oi  tho tablo was piled with bills.  "It seems like a shame," exclaimed  Scovel, ",butl'm going to raise you-$2,-  500, John," aud suiting tho action to  tho word ho counted off that amount in  bills aud tluew it in the middle.  Tho man with tho pat straight passed  without hesitating, aud tho next with  threo ace.-, concluded that his hand  wasn't worth $o,0C0 nioio, so he, too,  dropped out.  ' '".How about splitting tho pot, Jim:"  askod Morrisscy.  "Never," replied Scovel, "but I'll  lot you tako your last raise out."  "Mnko ic $1,000," said Morrisscy,  "and I'll go you."  "All right," said Sccvcl. "Whafd  you havo?"  "A lalla-pa-locFa," answered big  John, and threw his hand to Scovel.  Thero-waa a jack cf hearts and a deuce,  tray, four aud live of diamonds.    .  Soovcl turned his hand over and  showed the jack of diamonds, queen of  hearts, jack aud seven oi" clubs, and aco  of spades; ho had a solitary pair of  jacks. Talk about consternation. Tho  man who had passed on three acesmado  tho air blue, and the pat straight follow  fell unconscious. Scovel treated tho  house and took a cab to Albany. "If I  had only thought you was hlu\ug,"  said Morrisscy, "I'd havo sent \ iu to  '���Philadelphia ou a freight-train."  Thero was ��8,071-in tho pot, which  Scovel won with a pair of jacks.���  Troy Observer. ���'  - ���'   "i  The great wall of China is 1,600  miles long and traverses high mountains, deep valleys and, by means of  arches, wide rivers.

They would have done it, but the steamer could not'find the wreck in the fog,'  'nnd it was .supposed that she had foundered immediately after we left 'her.  I went home to my friends.   My husband had ,left very little money, and I  found that I should have to work for a  living.    I didn't, care to hire out as a  housekeeper.   I had learned navigation  thoroughly from my husband, and was  well fitted to take charge of a ship.   I  went to.a ship owner who was an old.  friend of my husband's, anel told him  just how things stood.     He  thought  that under the circumstances I coukln't  do beter than dress up as a man and go  to sea as a captain.  He found me a ship,  and I've been a skipper ever since.  And  now no one is going to take myt boy  away from me.'  " 'That'they ain't,' said good-hearted  Mr. Bradley, who then, ki&seel the boy  and shook hands with us all.

He could hear occasional whistles from the  steamer for  about half an hour.    Finally he made a  struggle and succeeded in tearing away  enough, broken ,tiniber to liberate himself.   He took the little boy with him,  and going on the deck found'that the  wreck was sinking.,     The vessel had  been deserted by the others, who ks<d  probably climbed on board thesteamer.  The wreck was now nearly even, with  the water, and the mate made a little  raft and launched it.   He took the boy  anel the surrounding country has been  given a setback  from   which  it   will  . take years to  recover.    The town that  once supported two good .newspapers  <* is now without a paper of  any  sort,  and    business  firms  that were  once  prosperous   are   on   the   verge   of  a  collapse.    Mines that should be working are lying  idle,  being   lied   up   by  litigation, and all  busine&s is   practically at a standstill.  Sloean City is not alone in her distress���there arc others.

Of course most of  them will eventually -come' out all  right,-<but it will take them some timo  to recover from the blow.

"A terrible episode," it says, "has  occurred in the history of the county an episode so criminal that the  glory of war and .victory has been  dimmed by the wrath caused by the  wrongs and sufferings of the soldiers  who have fought tho war and achieved  the glory."

It seems stranger to me now than it did  even then." The stewardess paused,  wi th a far-away; look in her eyes.     '  "When I was young I went on sailing  vessels instead of steamers,'" she continued.    "About 20 years ago I visited  some friends in the country after a  voyage, -and then I came to Jfetv York to  find a ship/ TheagentI went to told me  that I could go as stewardess on a ship  bound to Australia.   'The skipper,' said  he. 'is a good man, buthe'saregularold  match'   I said 1 didi_-fc mind old maids,  and so it was settled that I was to go  with the 'old maid captain.'   The next  day .1 went aboard and reported to ray-  new captain.   He was called Harris. He  was short and rather slightly built, with I  mild gray eyes, but with a full, heavy  black beard.   He seemed about 35 years  old.  His hands were small aaid delicate,  and his voice was high and just a trifle  shrill, and he walked up and down the  deck  with  a  mincing   sort  of    gait.  Thinks I, 'Capt, Harris, if vou wasn't  a skipper you'd have made a first-rate  single woman.'    I regularly despised  him until the first storm came on.  Then  he went on deck and handled the. ship  hi such 'a way that 1 saw he was the  best navigator I had ever sailed under.  After that I began to think better of the  old maid captain.   1 never saw- a captain  ao considerate of his men.    If one of  them was the least bit sick, the captain  would go into the forecastle and look  after him as tenderly as any nurse. And  when the weather was bad, he would  not let the mates make tho meu do nny  work that wasn't really necessary.  The  mates used io make fun. of tlie oaptain  behind hhs back for being so considerate  of his men, but somehow I thought it,  was a good trait in him.  "I began to watch tlie eaptaiu closely,  and I svoon made up my mind that there  was some mystery about thnt man.  Once on a pleasant evening 1 came on  d'eck and saw the captain looking at tho  red sunset with tears in his tiyew. Another time, when I thought ho was on  deck, I went into the after cabin for  Gomething, and I found -him then*.  What do you think ho was eloing? Why,  ho was sewing-,- and cryijig infy. the"  ba rgain. 'They ;rr<; right in cnJlme vou  tho old maid capUin,' thinks 1.  '"The male, Mr: Wood, was a tall, ftne-  loOking    down^c-aster.

The mate,  somehow, .seemed to take a fancy to me.  I was young in those days.   Ilowas nl-  ways running into the cabin on Some  pretext  to  see  me.    But I never encouraged Jiim.   Yqu s,ee, I was engaged  to  be tho mate of another mate? and  that mate, poor fellow, was lost at sea  a  few years ;>ftenward.   Although the  captain didn't seem to care much about  me, he didn't fancy Die mate's taking a  liking io mfc.   That used to puswle me.  "One-morning when we were' iii the  iSduth Pacific, some one cried out tliat  yhere .wasla small boaf with se-veraJ  people in it in sight oh the lee bow.

Next  morning it wos clear", and the'mate and  the boy were picked up by a small iiron  bark bound to Japan.   The bark; how-  over, got out of her course,,and was  driven ashore on a small island, not far  from the Philippines.   The island was  inhabited by friendly natives, who took  care of the stranded crew, but nearly  three years  passed before anjr- .vessel  touched at the island. , They were finally taken off by a man-of-war, which  landed" them, at Borah-ay.     There the  mate was ftaken sickand sentto ihe hospital, and while in, hospital he Was visa  ited by Mr." Bradley.   Mr. Bradley, who  had once been befriended by the boy's  father, said, that the bark he was on  was about to sail for 2srow York, and he  undertook to deliver the little fellow  to his friends.   But now tie' poor boy  was again on his way to the'other'side  of the world.  "While Mr. Bradley was finishing Ids  account of how be came by tho boy,  Capt. Harris came in from the   after  cabin  and  said  that the little fellow  was sleeping nicely.   Mr. Bradley began to .tell the captain about how the  boy was wrecked tho first time.    Then  the captain rose up, palfeand trembling,-  and asked the naone of the ship.   When  Mr. Bradley gave the name of the ship  that was run down, and said that"tiie  boy's father was Capt. Wilson, the skipper staggered back, and then   rushed  intotUeaftercabinasif he had gone madi  Wecouldn't make out what was the matter with him.   An Jiour la ter I went into  the after oa.bin for something, and I  saw tie captain leaning over the boy  who was fast asleep.   - The   captain  looked up, and I noticed that his eyes  were ired, as if he had been crying hard-  Thinks I:  'Well, well, you are an old  cruaid of a captain, indeed.'-  "The next morn ing we were becalmed.  ^ ear by us lay a big clipper ship, which,-  toward noon, sent a boat to us.   The  officer in charge of tlie clipper's boat  said thnt they were bound for Kew  York, but were short-lianded,. nnd h��  told Mr; Bradley that he and the other  men from  the lost barque were welcome to come on board and work their  passage   to   the   United  States.     Mr.  Bradley'jumped at the chance, and when  bis  men  were nil ready to leave our  ship,  ho  looked  arouncl  for   the boy.  Wc found the littJe fellow in the cabin,  where ho  was being petted by Capt. \  narris.   The captain inade a great out- '  cry  when  Mr.  Bradley said that the  Ix.y wotdd have to go with him.   Our  skipper begged hard for th j youngster,  but Mr.  Bradley  .said that he would  have io  take him to his friends,   Mr.  Bradley was about to lead the youngster  out of the cabin, when Capt. Harris  fell on   his knees and put liis   arms  around  the boy,    Then he looked up  to Mr. Bradley and said:  "You must hot take him. I nin his  father!'  '"His father!' replied Mr. Bradley.  'What do you mean ? Whv, I knew Capi  Wilson myself. He was at least ten  years older than yOti, and was a large  man into the bargain. Come, let me  have the boyJ'  " 'No, no,' cried Capt.
