The orfilge nhsxverfcfl Tne hail as the eearehliglit pointed forward again. A gust carried the snow in a fierce flurry which the light failed to pierce; from the flurry suddenly, silently, spar by spar, a shadow emerged—the shadow of a ship. It was a steamer, Alan saw, a long, low-lying old vessel without lights and without smoke from the fun­ nel slanting up just forward of the after deckhouse; It rolled in the trough of the sea. The sides and all the lower works gleamed in ghostly phosphores­ cence, it was refraction of the search­ light beam from the Ice sheathing all the ship, Alan's bfoln told him; but the sight of that soundless, shimmering ship materializing from behind the screen of snow struck a tremor through him. “Ship I” he hailed. “Ahead I Dead \ ahead, sir! Ship!” The shout of quick commands echoed to him from the bridge. Un­ derfoot he could feel a new tumult of the deck; the engines, instantly stopped, were being set full speed as­ tern. But Number 25, instead of sheering off to right or left to avoid the collision, steered straight on. The struggle of the engines against, the momentum of the ferry tqld that others had seen the gleaming ship, or, at least, had heard the hail. The skip­ per’s instant decision had been to put to starboard; he had bawled that to the wheelsman, “Hard over!” But, though the screws turned full astern, Number 25 steered straight on. The flurry was blowing before the bow again; back through the snow the ice- shrouded shimmer ahead retreated. Alan leaped away and up to the wheel- house. Men were struggling there—the skip­ per, a mate, and old Burr, who had held the wheel. He clung to it yet, as one in a trance, fixed, staring ahead; his arms, stiff, had been holding Num­ ber 25 to her course. The skipper struck him and beat him away, while the mate tugged at the wheel. Burr was torn from the wheel now, and he made no resistance to the skipper’s blows; but the skipper, in his frenzy, struck him again and knocked him to the deck. # ~ Slowly, steadily. Number 25 was re­ sponding to her helm. The bow point­ ed away, and the beam of the ferry came beside the beam of the silent steamer; they were very close now, so close that the searchlight, which had turned to keep on the other vessel, shot above its shimmering deck and lighted only the spars; and, as the wa­ ter rose and fell between them, the ships sucked closer. Number 25 shook with an effort; it seemed opposing with all the power of its screws some force fatally drawing it on—opposing with the last resistance before giving way. Then, as the water fell again, the ferry seemed to slip and be drawn toward the other vessel; they mounted, side by side . . . crashed . . . recoiled . . , crashed again. That second crash threw all who had nothing to hold by, fiat upon the deck; then Number 25 moved by; astern her now the silent steamer vanished in the snow. Gongs boomed below; through the new confusion and the cries of men, orders began to become audible. Alan, scrambling to his knees, put an arm under old Burr, half raising him; the form encircled by his arm struggled up. The skipper, who had knocked Burr away from the wheel, ignored him now. The old man, dragging himself up and holding to Alan, was staring with terror at the snow screen behind which the vessel had disappeared. His lips moved. “It was a ship!” he said; he seemed speaking more to himself than to Alan. “Yes,” Alan said. “It was a ship; and you thought—** “It wasn’t there!” the wheelsman cried. “It’s—it’s been there all the time all night, and I'd—I'd steered through It ten times, twenty times, every few minutes; and then—that time it was a ship!” Alan’s excitement grew greater; he seized the old man again. “ You thought it was the Miwaka!\ Alan exclaimed. “The Miwaka! And you tried to steer through it again.” “The Miwaka I\ old Burr’s lips reit­ erated the word. “Yes; yes—the Mi­ waka I” He struggled, writhing with some agony not physical. Alan tried to hold him, but now the old man was beside himself with dismay. He broke away and started aft. The captain’s voice recalled Alan to himself, as he was about to follow, and he turned back to the wheelhouse. The second officer, who had gone be? low to ascertain the damage done to the ferry, came up to report. Two of the compartments, those which had taken the crush of the collision, had flooded Instantly; the bulkheads were holding—only leaking a little, the offi­ cer declared. Water was coming Into a third compartment, that at the stern; the pumps were fighting this water. The shock had sprung seams else­ where; but If the after compartment did not fill, the pumps might handle the rest. Alan was at the bow again on look­ out duty, ordered to listen and to look for the little boats. He gave to that duty all his conscious attention; but through his thought, whether he willed it or not, ran a riotous exultation. As he paced from side to side and hailed and answered hails from the bridge, and while he strained for sight and hearing through the gale-swept snow, the leaping pulse within repeated, *Tve found him! I’ve found him I” Alan held no longer possibility of doubt of old Burr's identity with Ben­ jamin Corvet, since the old man had made plain to him that he was haunt­ ed by the Miwaka. Since that night In the house on Astor street, when Spearman shouted to Alan that name, everything'having to do with the se­ cret of Benjamin Corvet’s life had led, so far as Alan could follow it, to the Miwaka; all the change, which Sher­ rill described but could not account for, Alan had lijld to that.* Corvet only could have been so haunted by that ghostly ship, and there had been guilt of some awful sort In the old man’s cry. Alan had found the man who had sent him away to Kansas when he was a child, who had support­ ed him there and then, at last, sent for him; who had disappeared at his coming and left him all his posses­ sions and his heritage of disgrace, who had paid blackmail to Luke, and who had sent, last, Captain Stafford's watch and the ring which came with It—-the wedding ring. Alan pulled his hand from his glove and felt in his pocket for the little band of gold. What would that mean te him now; what of that was he to ' learn? And, as he thought of that, Constance Sherrill came more insist- WTmt * \vak he To learn for her, for Ills friend and Ben­ jamin Corvet’s friend, whom he, Uncle Benny, had warned not to cave for Henry. Spearman, and then had gone away to leave her to marry him? For she was to marry him, Alan hod rend. More serious damage than first re­ ported! The pumps certainly must he losing their fight with the water In the port compartment aft; for the bqw steadily was lifting, the stern sinking. The starboard rail too was raised, and the list had become so sharp that wa­ ter washed the deck abaft the fore­ castle to port. And the ferry was pointed straight into the gale now; long ago she had censed to circle and steam slowly In search for boats; she struggled with all her power against the wind and the seas, a desperate in­ sistence throbbing In the thrusts of the engines; for Number 25 was flee- ing—fleeing for the western shore. She dared not turn to the nearer eastern shore to expose that shattered stern to the seas. Four bells beat behind Alan; It was two o’clock. Relief should have come long before; but no one came. He was numbed now; ice from the spray crackled upon his clothing when he moved, and it fell in flakes upon the deck. The stark figure on the bridge was that of the second officer; so the thing which was happening below— the thing which was sending strange, violent, wanton tremors through the ship—was serious enough to call the skipper below, to make him abandon the bridge at this time! The tremors, quite distinct from the steady tremble of the engines and the thudding of the pumps, came again. Alan, feeling them. Jerked up and stamped and beat his arms to regain sensation. Some one stumbled toward him from the cabins now, a short figure in a great coat. It was a woman, he saw as she hailed him—the cabin maid. “I’m taking your place!” she shouted to Alan. “You’re wanted—every one’s wanted on the car deck!

Sixty years ago when the young blood coursed through your veins and the call for volunteers was sounded, you donned the blue uni­ form, the badge of service, shouldered your rifles and trudged off to the fields of war. You reckoned naught of your own lives or fortunes, but you offer­ ed them up cheerfully and thankfully on the altar of freedom. No selfish motive inspired you; no vain glory prompted you; your grand purpose was to serve, to die if needs be, that others might live, and that this grand country to whom you owed your all might be saved from ruin and disas­ ter. \Greater love than this no man hath.” Some of you paid the price of freedom with your lives and those martyred heroes sleep peacefully be­ neath the grassy mounds where they fell in battle. It is small wonder that Reunion means so much to you men. Comrades in arms, you are comrades in peace for the tie that binds you to­ gether is the indissoluble bond of ser­ vice. The spirit that guided you in those troublous days, and the Inspir­ ation which you have left to us as our heritage is admirably expressed in a little poem ,or rather a little prayer set in poetical language: “Lord, help me live from day to day In such a self-forgetful way That even *when I kneel to pray My prayer shall be for Others. “Help me in alll the work I do To ever be sincere and true, And know that all I’d do for You Must needs be done for Others. “Let ‘Self’ be crucified and slain. And buried deep; and all in vain May efforts be to rise again, Unless to live for Others. “And when my work on earth is done, And when new work in heaven’s begun, May I forget the crown I’ve won WhiJle thinking still of Others. ♦ \Others Lord, yes, Others; Let this my motto be, Help me to live for Others, That I may live for Thee.\ WfcLWiV «A» « » n. *• Belle M ead.Sweets SiiiUR'i jl Iniltf UNITED CTo I mr St: If n v . . . . . . | « M \XI a n r jJt- Iwtlll l M M IIH II ..'ll 1 J V 7,**. *y\ First In Hartfordf Conn.

While on this subject it may not be out of place to call attention to the lack of proper facilities for glass washing at many soda fountains and soft drink parlors, where running wa­ ter is not available. Particular refer­ ence is made to roadside shacks and summer resort booths, which are in use for only a short period during the year. In such places a simple pail of water, without any soap, has been known to serve for* the washing of in­ numerable glasses during an entire day. Such places should receive imme­ diate attention from local health au­ thorities and should be put out of business if they refuse to conform to the rules of common sanitary practice and ordinary decency.

Pennsylvania Railroad and Employes and Stockholders. You recall the old nursery rhyme, “This is the house that Jack built?’* The story of Nature’s warfare runs on very much the same lines. This is the fox that ate the squirrel that stole the eggs of the magpie that killed the sparrow that devoured the fly that destroyed the caterpillar that spoilt the cabbage that grew In the house that Jack built! Nature uses one pest to fight another. Each of the creatures mentioned is a pest; yet each is capable of useful work. • Moths and butterflies lay hundreds of eggs at a time, so that if nothing preyed on caterpillars we should soon have not a single green leaf in the country. But we must have moths and butterflies to fertilize flowers. The chief foe of the caterpillar is the Ichneumon-fly, which lays eggs in him as he crawls on a leaf. These eggs hatch into grubs and kill the cater­ pillar. The ichneumon-fly is eaten by small birds which do useful work in this way, though in other ways they are In reply to an inquiry as to how the employes of the Pennsylvania railroad have fared, as compared with its stockholders, by reason of the wage and dividend changes made since the pre-war period, Mr. A. J. County, Vice President, in Charge of Accounting, has authorized the fol­ lowing: In 1914 wages on our railroad aver­ aged $850 a year per employe. Today, after all readjustments, including those effective July 1, 1922, they av­ erage $1550. Our wages are, therefore, 82 per cent, higher than in 1914, while the cost of living, according to government statistics, is 67 per cent, higher. This means that each of our 200,000 employes, on the average, is able to buy considerably more of the desirable and needful things of life than his pre-war wages would obtain. Our stockholders are in a different position. They number 140,000. Most of them own less than 50 shares each. The average owneship is 71 shares. Before the war 71 shares yielded an income of $213 per year. In 1921 our directors were forced to reduce the dividend on Pennsylvania railroad stock from the rate of 6 per cent, to 4 per cent, per annum. This cut the return of the holder of the average number of shares to $142 per year. He is now getting one-third less dol­ lars than in 1914, and in addition, like the employe, he has to meet the higher cost of living. This means that the actual buying power of his pres­ ent income from dividends is muen below that of his pre-war return. Our management feels an obliga­ tion, which has been publicly stated, to restore the 6 per cent, rate as soon as that step can be wisely taken, without risking deterioration of the property. Even then our stockhold­ ers’ inicomes will merely be restored as to the number of dollars, but not since gloriously vindicated the regi­ ment, and credit for their gallant bravery has been tardily conferred upon them but the stigma so earily branded upon their young hearts made their trials doubly hard and only spurred them bn to greater courage and more splendid laurels. At Gettys­ burg in three days of the most terrific fighting they bore the brunt of battle and covered themselves with undying glory. This regiment entered into the battle of Gettysburg with a personnel of 30 officers and 425 enlisted men, and emerged with a casualty loss of 231. According to official reports there were only four regiments that lost in killed and wounded at Gettysburg more than the 126th N. Y. Out of the original 1,000 men who were enlisted into the regiment, only 221 men were mustered out in 1865. Of these gallant 221 men there remain in Yates county but five survivors. Time has reaped its toll as the years have rolled by and the number at each reunion grows fewer and fewer. It is a fact worthy of congratulation that this important re­ union has been observed annually for many years in the past. Let us resolve that it be observed in the future until the last veteran survives Let us carry on the inspiration of service which these men have transmitted to posteri­ ty and may each succeeding reunion add some small measure of happiness to those who still remain.

The same con­ dition, of course, is true of the rail­ roads in general, and has undoubtedly been an Important factor in account­ ing for the failure of the men, who are at present on strike against the recently authorized very moderate wage readjustment, to enlist the support of the public. It is, and long has been, the declar­ ed policy of the Pennsylvania railroad to pay its employes the best wages and offer them the most favorable working conditions in the country, or for that matter, in the world. The stockholders ot the company have consistently supported the manage­ ment in this policy, in order that loy­ al, efficient and satisfied working forces might be maintained, and the public receive the best service possi­ ble. Most of our men are, and always have been, of this type. In the present crisis, the great ma­ jority of our shop forces have remain­ ed loyal, wisely accepting a conserva­ tive wage readjustment which is fair to their interests, and necessary as a measure of justice both to the own­ ers and the users of our railroad.

The latest cry of alarm raised by the railway strikers is that the man­ agers of the roads are plotting to break up the unions. Mr. Gompers is officially horrified at the signs of a “unified union-smashing campaign.” The evidence he produces does not bear out the interpretation which he places upon it, and with the obvious facts in the case he does not deial. Instead of being smashed, the railway unions are goveramentally recognized by the Transportation Act and by the proceedings of the Railway Labor Board under it. Moreover, between the railway executives and all the unions, except those of the Federated Shop Crafts who struck, the relations are amicable. Both by law and in practice collective bargaining for rail­ road employes has been placed in a position apparently more secure than ever before. Who imperilled it? Who set about the union-smashing? Undeniably the striking shopmen. They took them­ selves out from under the jurisdiction of the Labor Board, thereby leaving the latter with no shop crafts organ­ ization with which to deal. This began the campaign to smash the unions, if anything did. But there is no such campaign. There is a cam­ paign to make the unions responsible, to hold them to their contracts, to urge the need of inducing or compell­ ing them to submit to lawful decisions of a lawful agency of the government. But that does not mean smashing the unions. No one can smash them ex­ cept the unions themselves? — New York Times. ♦ ■ Latest in autos—new Fords. ACTION OF WATER ON FIRE Just What Takes Place When the Liquid Is Employed for Quench. ing Flames. Practically, water thrown on a fire drowns out the blaze. Scientifically, however, the water absorbs so much of tiie heat in the fire that the tempera­ ture of the fire Is lowered so that the oxygen will not combine with the carbon in the burning material and the fire goes out. % It is peculiar that water, which Is made of oxygen and hydrogen, will put out a fire which requires hydrogen and oxygen before It will burn. This Is true, however, as the oxygen and hydrogen composing the water already have been burned or heated to a high temperature when they combined as water, and so, as no substance or gas that has been burned once can be burned again, the combination of the two gases In the form of water will not burn when thrown on the fire. To the contrary, the heat of the burning fire Is -lowered by the water so that the oxygen of the air cannot combine with it and, lacking the the fire is extinguished.— Philadelphia Ledger.
