OS A CHOLERA SHIP.
Plague, Manlty and Heroism on the
From Chambers’ Journal.
Now came a most trying time. Not a
breath of wind ruffled the surface of the
water; the ship rolled gently on the oily
swell, with all her sails—even to the roy
als—set, to catch the slightest stir. The
deaths continued with alarming rapidity,
and then, as Lampsey had said, there
was actually nothing wherewith to
weight the corpses. The steward, Ross,
the Scotch sailor lad, and one or two of
our own private native servants—under
the stimulus of reward paid down on the
nail ae so much a head—their mouths and
noses muffled in carbolic saturated tow
els, constituted the burial party. These
men. penetrating 'tween decks, drugged
the corpses up the hatchway, across the
deck and pushed them through the gang
way doors, just as they were, for there
was little time and less inclination to sew
them up In canvas, as had been done at
the outset. Being unweighted, the bodies
refused to sink; the sharks, moreover,
did not appear to fancy them, and, being
impelled by the same current, they kept
by the ship's side, bobbing up and down,
rolling over, now on their backs, now
face up, in the most horribly grewsome
fashion. We In the cuddy were fast be
coming demoralized as well; then the
wretched Punjabs crowded at the doors
and appealed to us in piteous strains,
invoking Allah to grant us a wind, and
imploring us to pray to God with the
same object. What could we do? We
told them that we should hail the first
steamer and get her to tow us Into a
wind which would not only fill our sails,
but blow the cholera out of the ship. In
the meantime, we exhorted them to be
patient and obey the doctor In all things.
Several steamers passed, going in the
same direction, but too far off to com
municate. At last on the tenth day of
the calm, we sighted a two-funnel steam
er hull down In our wake. She came on
slowly, and as she drew abreast of us
about a mile away we hoisted our dls
tres signal and anxiously awaited the re
sult. In a few minutes she replied,
whereupon we displayed a whole lino
of bunting: on reading which she altered
her course and ranged up to within speak

added to his fellows, and the whole crowd
made oft to the forecastle. A storm was
brewing, and we unanimously ranged our
selves on the side of law and order. I
and the other passengers fished out our
revolvers, loaded them, and stuck them In
our belts; the skipper similarly nrmed
himself and the officers, and several of
us descending the poop ladder cast loose

carried, and trundled them into the cud

there ensued a lull. We were tit 'he cud

on deck looking out for steamers. The
poor plague-stricken Punjabis frequently
came to the dor and asked if there were
any signs of a wind, for they had evi
dently become Imbued with the truth of
what we had told them earlier In the day
—that a breeze In all probability would
rid them of the scourge. The atmosphere
was dense and hot, without the slightest
breath of air, and we sat anxious and
watchful, expecting at any moment to
come to open loggerheads with the crew.
"Below there!” suddenly called O'Kelly
through the skylight.
" 'Ullo!" responded the skipper.
"Sure, sir, It look black and threaten

At the welcome words we all followed
the Captain, and rushed on deck. The
mate pointed to the west, and, true
enough, the horizon in that direction pre

an unwonted commotion wos observable
among the hitherto apathetic Punjabis.
They ,too, had noticed the change in the ’
sky’s asi>ect, and, following our glances, I
had heard the short altercation between •
poop and forecastle, had seen the threat- :
ening gestures of the disputants, and,
without understanding what was being
said, guessed its purport. Then scores of
them, suddenly shaking off their lethar
gy, and ignorant of marine etiquette,
swarmed up the poop ladders and asked
wha was the matter. Was a breeze
coming at last? If so, why did not the
sailors do what had been ordered? They j
knew enough to tell them that the can- j
vas ought to be taken in. Devine and I, |
who were the only men on board con- j
“versant with Punjab Hindustandi, hastily
explained the situation, the advancing
storm, the consequent danger to the ship,
clothed ns she was to the mastheads, and
the refusal of the orew to do their duty.
The Mahometan mule drivers at once
realized the situation. “Wo will make

thoroughly up. “God has sent the wind

go to another death because your men are
untrue to their salt? No! we will aid j

Punjabis rushed along the main deck and j
mounted the forecastle. The crew was '
ready to receive them. There ensued a
fierce fight; knives were freely used j
against the now r infuriated natives, who j
were, however, entirely unarmed, their
cutlasses being in chests below decks. |
Shrieks and groans assailed our ears, and 1
we were about charging forward, revolvers !
in hand, to quell the disturbance, when,
numbers having gained the day, we saw !
the sailors driven along with kicks and
cuffs by the victorious Punjabis; we saw
them ascend the ratlins followed by the
swarms of mule drivers, who threatened
by gestures to throw them into the sea
if they did not immediately furl sail. The
seamen, not daring to disobey, worked in 1
fear of their lives, and in a few minutes
he Zenobin floated along under bare pole.
With a low rumble the squall came on.
Sand was in the air; it invaded our eyes,
nostrils and mouths; the hurricane struck
the ship with terrific force and swept on,
leaving us well nigh on our beam ends,
. The gust proving to be a precursor of a
stiff but favorable breeze, sail was speed
ily made on the ship, and in due course
we bowled along toward our destination,
thankful for our deliverance from a com
bination of perils that once seemed to
threaierw us with annihilation.
Only two deathS occurred after that ter
hible day. Next morning the crow ex
pressed contrition for their behavior; the
Punjabis, now' full of renewed spirits,
came aft in a body and interceded for their
late antagonists; ci ts and bruises were f:r
golten, and both parties shook bands in
token of amity and absence of ill will.
The skipper, nothing loath, accorded his
forgiveness, ordered extra grog to lx- serv

THRIFT IN PENNY BANK.
MECHANICAL TOYS THAT ENCOUR
AGE THE HABIT OF SAVING.
Joy* of Hoarding Coin—A Brooklyn
Family's Device* for Getting? and
Keeping: All Accessible Change.
From the New York Times.
The family without a savings bank is to
be pitied. The savings bank Is the pre
server of good manners and morals, and
above all things, it is the preserver of
much money. The child who has not been
brought up with the good old-fashioned
savings bank habit has lost half the
pleasure of childhood. There is a worthy
Brooklyn family which would say that
the child who did not grow up with tlie
savings bank habit had lost much of the
pleasure of grown-up life also.
The Brooklyn famify has had the sav
ings bank habit inculcated root and
branch, and now there is not a member
who has not a bank. There is a family
bank and there is ever a bank to which
friends of the family contribute and have
the pleasure of enjoying the spoils. The
family habit has become so much a char
acteristic that it is contagious, and any
one who visits the family frequently is
sure to contract it.
To begin th© habit does not require
capital. Sometimes when an attempt is
made to inoculate some unsusceptible
person there is a required outlay of $1
or $1.50 for an irresistible bank, a Wil
liam Tell shooting the apple from his son’s
head, a coin of some kind taking the
place of the apple, or an Indian shooting
a boar, or a nice little girl and a speak
ing dog, to make the saving habit a game
which will cajole the possessor of coins
that should be saved until the practice
is fixed. But this is not often necessary,
and in selecting saving banks the great
thing is to get something that cannot be
opened. The great impetus to forming
the habit is the thought of the dollars
that will he revealed when the bank is
opened. It is hard until the habit Is
fixed to wait until the proper time, and,
as said before, it is necessary to have a
bank that cannot be opened easily.
In the Brooklyn family there are two
banks which are nothing more or less
than plebeian tomato cans, which, having
served their purpose in the culinary de
partment, have found their way to the
upper regions of the house and take all
the spare change of he two pretty'daugh
ters of the family. The tomato cans have
a distinct advantage over regul r banks.
In the first place, they are commodious,
in the second they do not reveal the’r
contents; it is r.ol possible to look through
tempting crev?ces and see the store con
tained within, and -there is not as great
a temp'ation to open them Then they
cannot be opened without breaking, there
is no gentle way of taking out half the
contents and leaving the rest inside. To
take out half is “no fair” in*the banking
game. The money must be left until
the specified time, or until the hank If
full. The tomato cans are left, and when
they are opened there is always a gener
ous sum within, which Is used for rome
special purpose. T ien there is a kind
friend who solders up the can again, and
they are ready to Begin anew series
Servants I,©urn to Save.
The servants of this family, which is
patriarchal in its domestic relat'ons. ave
usually inculcated with the saving habit
by means of the realistic banks. One maid,
for instance, was presented with a myste
rious affair, a colored man in gorgeous at
tire. into whose mouth the coin to be eav
ed was placed, a button was p.resscd. the
darky turned a lively somersault, and th*
penny was in the bank safely out of the
way. That inoculation “took” imme
diately. The maid became so devoted to
the saving habit that she could hardly
keep enough money out of her bank to
give her necessary' wearing apparel, and
as soon as the bank was filled and emptied
for the first time she presented it as a
means of inoculation to a young nephew
an<l took a plainer one herself. The sav
ing habit once started become© an endless
The two most interesting banks of the
Brooklyn family are the general family
and visitors' hanks. The family is one
noted for its domestic virtues, and cne of
its daily amusements is the game of
“Scot.” which is played regular every
night when the members are alone. There
is. of course, one winner and two loses,
and the two losers put into the family
hank 5 cents each. The bank is kept in
tact for five or six pionths, or until there
is a need felt for some household article
There is a Tamily vote to take the tnony
from the trank and purchase It, and it Is
done. The bank has just been opened,
and the result guests at dinner may no
tice in a first-class carving knife and
fork. That was the purchase made fr m
the family Scot money bank. The vis
itors' bank is also a Scot bank.
There is one family friend, a young man.
who goes all the way from New York
once of twice a week to visit the Brook
lyn family, and there is always a game
of Scot, at which he is a player. But this
is a more ambitious game than the do
mestic affair, and the two losers put each
night 25 cents into the bank, and at the
end of the several months, when the bank
is opened, there is a very likely sum con
tained in it, some *ll or *l2. which is equal
ly divided among the players, who are
always the same, nnd every one has a
wonderful feeling of having won a large
sum of money. The games are fairly
even, so that If any one has actually lost
during the course of the play it is but lit
tle and the money coming in always
seems so much clear gain. The young
man's share amounts to enough to have
paid his car fare In his visits to the
Brooklyn family, and he feels that he is
so much In, which Is probably actually
The saving habit is one which attempts
are marie to inculcate in the children In
mot families. It occasionally becomes
permanent or is carried on for some time,
but In more cases the germs take only
slight root and the action is spasmodic.
But the attempt is mode so frequently
that the number of banks which have been
made are legion. They range from the
fruit banks, oranges or apples, which
must be broken to get the money, through
a long line of iron and nickel hanks up to
he fancy ones which represent various
realistic scenes from llfe-the Inoculating
Hanks That Tempt Deposits.
'Perhaps the greater number of hanks of
one kind are those that represent small
safes. They range from tiny little affairs
which cost 5 cents to banks large enough
to hold a good sum of money, finished in
nickel, that cost f>o cents. A little green
and black bank which looks os if it might
have stepped out of some miniature old
lime office, costs 10 cents. A fine-looking
nickel-plated Saratoga trunk costs 75
cents, but that Is a registering bank, one
of the most expensive of the plainer
kinds. It will take only fen-cent pieces,
and registers every dime put lr>, and

State banks are to be found In many
designs, and little fancy houses painted
In bright colors ore popular. Some of them
oi*en with keys, but that Is always a bad
feature. The fancy banks ore a delight
to children, and give quite as much pleas
ure to the children's parents.
Of all the fancy banks, the most popular
in these days of war nnd rumors of war
is the ine in which the money Is put into

There is sometimes an excess of the
saving habit. It becomes almost danger
ous to have a hank into w hich only ten
cent pieces, for ins ance, can go. Cases
are related where the possessor of the
dime hank developed a real mania for
dimes. There was a gloating satisfaction
in gftting a dime which wa=* equaled by
nothing but the misers love of money.
Every cent which could be possibly spared
was turned into dimes, and after a while
the owner of the hank became dime poor.
All her money was in dimes, and all the
and mes were in the bank, where she could
