' II N: Marpesia when that craft
was mown to pieces on Christmas Day
arrived at New York a few days ago
on tho Bermuda liner Trinidad with a
story to tell of hairbreadth escapei
. that bnB few parallels.
Still suffering from terrible naphtha
turns Captain Jensen of the lost craft
staggered down the gangplank of the
iTrinidad. One ashore the skipper
consented to tell his story. Here It is
in his own words:
"That any of us are here to tell the
story of the Marpesja is nothing more
nor less than a miracle. That any of
U8 are alive Is remarkable enough but
Itliat the only ship that we sighted
since we sailed away from New York
should have arrived on the scene al-
most at the moment of the disaster is
jwhat I call an act of God.
''The Marpesia was a three-masted'
frnrk and had on board 9470 barrels of
naphtha bound from New York for
Zitto In the Mediterranean. We sailed
from New York December 0 and eight
tiays later run Into the northeast hurri-
cane the fury of which was primarily
responsible for the loss of our ship and
so many of my poor men. The storm
iwas the worst I ever encountered. The
terrific winds and giant seas played
with the Marpcsia as if she were n toy
and every sail that we put up was im-
mediately torn from the bolt ropes as
If they were so much tissue paper.
Mountainous seus were continually
bombarding us with the result that at
the end of the second day our lifeboats
liad been smashed the compass and
dlnnocle washed overboard and the
cobln stove In and full of water.
"During these turbulent days the
T.nphtba barrels we being tossed
nbout in all directions and dozens of
them began to leak.
"When Christmas Day dawned wc
more still laboring heavily In the seas
Imt considering the circumstances
iwere doing fairly well with only storm
sails set. At about 11 o'clock on this
day the explosion occurred. Nobody
alive knows why.
"It came without a moment's warn-
ing and so terrlfle was its force that
the forward deck and forecastle were
tossed into the air as if they were made
of pasteboard. Tarts of the super-
structure must have Veen hurled at
!east a hundred feet into the air and
with them went the bodies of the poor
fellows who were forward at the time.
Though we heard shrieks of terror we
never saw the face of one of those
eleven men again.
"Then seven of us who were nft
(were thrown to the deck with great
Violence but wo were back on our feet
in mi instant. The entire forward part
of the ship was a i'jrfcct hell of flame
the foremast had gone and the main-
mast was toppling. A minute Inter it
too had gone. Helpless doom staring
us In the face we seven stood astern
and watched the flame cat its way in
"Then an inspiration came to me
and I yelled to Hanson the steersman:
'Hard down with your helm!' Hanson
obeyed and slowly what was left of
the Marpcsia wore around before the
wind. As I expected the flames were
Mown forward but nevertheless they
soon began to crawl back to where we
iwere. We liad nbout given up hope
iwhen in the distance steaming in our
direction we saw the transatlantic
liner Gallia from Marseilles
"The Gallia signaled to us that she
was coming to the rescue as fast as her
engines could make her. The decks
were then so hot that we had to dance
to keep our feet from being burned.
The tire was then within twenty feet
of us and on the very rim of the flame
stood Hanson at the wheel his face
and hands blistered and in frightful
agony. Had he allowed the ship to
swerve three points the flames would
liave enveloped us. I want to say right
here that no braver deed was ever done
'by a sailor than that of Hanson during
those terrible minutes while wo were
waiting for the Gallia.
"Finally we realized that to save our-
selves we would have to .tump as the
lien t had scorched our clothes. I knew
that another minute on the ship would
lie our last on earth. We had two life-
belts left and one of them we gave to
Eveusen the mate whose arms were
in a pitiful shape and who was almost
lielpless. The other wc gave to Lund
the second male who also had ;i bad
arm. but I.und lean'.d tliat Sitlbcrg.

made the lad take It.
"Then we all jumped. The Gnllia
was still several hundred yards dis

lowering a lifeboat. The moment the

that were running smashed it like a

tempt to launch another but brought

weak he could not hold the rope. For-
tunately a lucky roll of the sea washed
lil in up to the gunwale and n sailor
caught him by his lifebelt and dragged
film on board.

course to land us at Bermuda and 1
want to say right here that more gal-
lant men than Captain Wilson and his

AN HEROIC EFFORT.
The Dei Moines Register and Leader
under date of New York December 18
"Burled under ten tons of coal with
life sustained by means of a gas pipe
forced through the heavy mass while
his comrades worked heroically to res-
cue him was the experience of Hugh
Kelly forty years old an employe of
the Hudson Coal Company. Kelly is
now In the Jersey City Hospital
bruised and injured internally. Thysi-
clans there say he cannot live.
"Kelly was at work on top of a thirty-foot
trestle up which big steel cars
each carrying fifty tons of coal are run
from the barges. Ills duty was to se-
cure tha cars before they were emptied
Into the chute. Kelly was on a car
fastening the brakes when another em-
ploye Thomas Haggerty pulled tie
lever which releases the coal from the
bottom of the car. Kelly fell with the
coal thirty feet and was lu an instant
burled under tons of It.
"Kelly's fatal plunge was seen by
Haggerty but his cries for help brought
other employes headed by Alderman
Holmes superintendent of the yard to
the scene. A long piece of gas pipe
was shoved down through the coal and
fortunately reached the entombed man
who was thus saved from suffocation.
"Then followed a brave fight against
death. Armed with shovel the band
of rescuers delved and dug with frantic
haste to rescue their comrade.
"Occasionally one would shout en-
couragingly through the pipe to the un-
fortunate man. Haggerty a lifelong
friend of Kelly through whose mistake
the accident occurred was among the
foremost in the work of rescue and
when the last lump of coal had been
removed anil anxious hands raised
Kelly to the platform he was uncon-
scious. Ills teeth were clenched like a
vise on the end of the gas pipe.
"An ambulance had been summoned
in the meantime and Kelly was taken
to the hospital; where nn examination
by the physicians proved that his in-
juries were fatal.
"When his friend Haggerty who in-
sisted on going to the hospital with
him learned that there was no hope
of saving his friend's life he broke
down and cried like a child."
Among the daring light-hearted and
weather-tanned seamen of Nelson's
time was Kir Alexander Ball. At a
hundred points of character he was al-
most everything that the typical sea-
man of that day wus not writes the
author of "Nelson and His Captains."
His happiest hours were those he could
devote to reading. The rending of
"Itoblnson Crusoe" he told Coleridge
had sent him to sea. It is interesting
to reflect on the number of recruits
which that immortal tale has given to
the fleets of England.
Ball Avon Nelson's heart by a splen
did exhibition of coolness and courage.
On May 9 1798 the Vanguard Nel-
son's flagship with the Orion and the
Alexander sailed from Gibraltar On
the 20th a furious gale caught the three
ships between Corsica and the south-
ern coast of Italy. The Vanguard a
somewhat rickety ship which rolled
like a barrel fared badly. Her main
and mlzzen topmasts went then her
foremast snapped close to the deck and
was rolled overboard. Here was a flag-
ship In imminent peril of being car-
ried by the heavy westward swell on
to the Sardinian coast. Ball's seaman-
ship was of the careful and thorough
order and lie brought the Alexander
through the. gale unharmed. But he
did more than this. Wheu the gale
was at Its highest point he took the
helpless Vanguard in tow.
All Unwell the night of the 22d the
Alexander tolled on dragging the flag
ship slowly nnd doggedly oft" the coast.
The swell was furious the breakers
were near and Nelson the last man In
the world to risk another ship to save
his own ordered the Alexander to cast
off the hawser. Ball refused and per-
sisted in his refusal till Nelson broke
into furious threats and ordered Ball to
cast them loose. Ball at last took his
speaking trumpet and shouted back
"I feel confident I can bring her in
safe! I therefore must not and by the
help of Almighty God I will not leave
He hung on to the half-wrecked an-
guard till she found safe anchorage.
Nelson's first business was to go on
board the Alexander and embrace the
somewhat embarrassed Ball crying In
Ills vehement way "A friend iu need
is a friend indeed!''
THE LAST TRAIL.
And now comes one of the most ro
mantic and most pathetic incidents in
the history of this brave man; indeed
in all Western history. Rebelling at
the lameness of ranching and horse
trading nnd wagon trafficking longing
once more for the freedom of the trap-
ping trail' Kit Carson sent word among
his old friends the tree traders of the
Rockies and made up a party of eigh-
teen old-time long-haired men. Tlicy
sallied forth with rifle and axe and
pack and jingling trap chains iu the
fashion of the past making once more
deep into the heart of the Rockies.
They visited the Arkansas the Green
the Grand the White the Laramie
all the loved and lovable parks of the
mountains. They came back through
the Raton Mountains with abundant
fur. They said it was their last trail;
that they had visited the streams which
they loved in order that they might
"shake bands with them and say good
bye." The expedition was made for
sheer love of the old life which they
knew had now gone by forever. Em-

By the time a baby Is running about
he should have a dash of cold water on
his chest and neck at least before step-
ping out of his morning tub. This pro-
duces a healthful glow besides tough-
ening him and rendering him far less
liable to catch cold. Indeed by the
time a baby is two or three months old
his bath should gradually be brought
to tepid instead of the warm water so
generally used as the latter in propor-

GENERAL UTILITY BOX.
Almost ai;y woman can make a "gen-
eral utility" box and then use it for
keeping the baby's wardrobe or for a
shirt waist or a skirt box and a window

board box fifteen Inches deep three or
five feet long by two feet wide with
four harness hooks and six medium-
sized hinges. First pad the lid so !t
will have a rounding effect. Then up-
holster with a pretty cretonne or art
denim fastening the pleats around the
sides with brass-headed tacks. Line
with cheesecloth. Screw in the har-
ness hooks for legs and fasten on the

A USEFUL CLOSET.
The crying needs of the modern wom-

made from five wooden boxes. They
are put one above another and nailed
together. I covered mine with a strip
of heavy wall paper. Folds of the

possible is hung on a brass rod. I use

CARE OF SEWING MACHINE.
Not one woman In a thousand knows
that the most faithful of all household
appliances is the sewing machine ind
it is really a sensitive if Inanimate
creature. Were this fact better knowii
the average sewing machine would
give better service in the family circle.
The up-to-date machine is vastly differ-
ent from the one our grandmother
used. Ready to wear garments are re-
sponsible for the many attachments
nnd manufacturers could not afford to
put out hand work where at the pres-
ent time the machine does all that it Is
required to do.
Some of these attachments are wor-
thy the investigation of households
where much dressmaking Is done and
where there is not time for deft fingers
to place innumerable dainty stitches.
But the woman who intends to use
these up-to-date attachments should
take a course in instruction.
A machine which is used every day
should be oiled every day. Occasion-
ally It should be lubricated with the
best quality of kerosene. After the
kerosene has been used the machine
should be run rapidly for a few mo-
ments then ordinary machine oil
should be applied.

PROMISES MADE '0 CHILDREN.
Many women says a writer in Wom-
an's Life who would not think of light-
ly breaking a promise aiade to a grown-
up person is utterly carsless nbout
keeping her word with her children.
She promises whatever is convenient
at the moment and apparently thinks
that' the breaking or keeping of those
promises is a matter in which she can
please herself and that her children
have no right to consider themselves
aggrieved if she does not do so.
EMBLEM OF ARISTOCRACY.
The hat seem1? to be the emblem of
aristocracy as the crown is of royalty.
At least the New Y'ork Sun finds that
the hat regulates prices if not the So-
cial scale in the east side of that city.
A newspaper woman who recently took
up quarters with her chum In a Third
avenue flat has discovered that there
is a mine of wealth In going without
a hat. The first few times she 'went
out marketing she wore a hat. The
prices were outrageous. Then being a
newspaper woman and wise in the
ways of the east side she left off her
hat. Now she does her marketing

slightly toward the waist line. The

to be found. It is seen on both cloth

FOR A BRIDE.
A recently completed model designed
for a bride is of yellowish white cloth
combined with panels of Irish lace.
The bodice is entirely of lace with a
stole arrangement narrow over the
shoulders made cf straps of cloth and
lace entre doux. The deep cuff to the
elbow is cf straps of cloth laid over
luce and the upper sleeve a big puff

straps of clot'.i over lace. Voile and
lace are combined nnd such costumes
are made with a long habit. An at-
tractive model has a skirt inset with
three rows of wide entre doun ar-
ranged in festoons and a Louis XV.
coat of lace. The coat is unllned about
the shouli'ers. the lace forming a yoke
and choker; the sleeves are close and
finished at the elbow with lace ruffles.
THE ART OF DARNING.
Small holes in tr.ble linen should be
darned with ravelings of the linen it-
self and for this purpose the ravelings
should be carefully preserved when-
ever new linen is purchased. Linen
floss is the next best darning medium.
Darning stockings is never a very wel-
come task and t o often In the case
where tbera is a large family the task
seems almost endless. The following
method will insure less darning bo-caiis.-?
the darns being more secure will
last longer. Before beginning to darn
a l.ole tack a piece of coarse net lightly
to the stocking over the hole then
darn over the net end be sure to darn
also well into the stocking as well to
keep the darn Ann. This net makes
such a good foundation that the work
Is more quickly done ami the result is
a iruch smoother ami i.catcr darn than
one done in the old way.

THE LITTLE WORRIES.
Some one has stated that with re-
gard to worrying over trifles women
are far greater offenders than men. In
the main this is true for the average
man is either "happy-go-lucky over
little worries or keeps them to himself
more than a woman does. A man
that is of course the well balance.!
reasonable man-has an ampler ph lo-
sophy than his womenklnd; he takes
his joys too. less sadly for h
of women embark a pleasurable til
with much fear and trembling and an
anxiety calculated to take a few
months from their existence. But thei
can he no hard ond fast rule with re-
gard to the worrying capacity of the
sexes. When men worry they do it
whole-heartedly; while many a woman
invariablv considers the "sunny side
of a difficulty. Alas with most ot us
too often docs the trifling worry count
more hardly than the large- sorrow.and
too many of us destroy our chances ..f
happiness by an absorption in those lit-

A short time ago an argument was
carried on iu my presence that greatly
astonished me. The question discussed
was concerning the privilege ot open-
ing letters coming to the home regard-
less of the fact that they were ad-
dressed to some members of the family
not present at the time. A3 I listened
to the arguments I realized how tight
a hold the desire of gratifying curi-
osity had procured upon us.
Some held that tho opening of all let-
ters was a privilege allowed parent.
alone. Others seemed to think that a
letter wns household property. A feu-
declared that as a rule they did not
believe In the indiscriminate opening
of mail. Still they felt that as an ex-
ception to this rule husbands and wives
should consider It their prerogative tf
open mail addressed to each other.
After listening to the opinions broug-bt
forth I found that I stood alone in
thinking that a ietter shomd b: opened
only by the o:ie to whom It is ad-
dressed. I felt that although I might
have some curiosity concerning the con-
tents I would have no right to open
that epistle even though I felt that 1
m'.ght never bo accorded the privilege
of reading it.
As far as parents are concerned I
must say that I feci sure that a ma-
jority of children take great delight in
showing their letters to their parents.
We all know how happy it makes a
child to receive a personal letter. How
niuch greater l the delight when they
are allowed to open and rend it! If
parents have the full confidence of
their children I think they will not find
them' wanting in this little act of iUiiiJ
