New York. Aug. 10.—With the exception
of scowe, catamarans and Chinese junke*—
the last in a class by itself—sailing craft
of all nations are modelled on similar
lines—the fam4liar shape of a rowboat.
There may be more or less overhang at
either end. and difference in proportional
details, but the keel, rounded bilge, wedge
shaped bow, anti stern with swelling but
tocks. or quarters, are found everywhere.
The site of a sailing craft, with the com
bination of sails used in her make-up, is
what classifies her as a ship, bark, bark
en brig, brigantine, schooner, sloop,
yawl, lugger, or one of the host of lateen
rigged vessels known as the felucca type.
Sails may be loosely classed under two
general headings—square and fore-and
aft. As the name implies, the former is
square, or nearly so, and is hung by its
upper edge to a spindle-shaped spar called
a yard—which is fastend at middle to the
roast and is steadied by lifts and braces.
Four-masted Bhip Showing Complete Rigging.
It Is set by hoisting this yard after the
lower corners, or djtws. are hauled down
to the ends of a yard below, and is furled
by lowering the yard, hauling the clews
and body up to it, and bundling the whole
on top of the yard in a tapering roll. A
lower yard, however, does not hoist nor
lower, end the clews are hauled down and
made fast to the rail of the vessel. An
other manner of handling a square sail
Is to haul It out and In on hoops sliding
on the greased yard; and still another—
as in the esse of a "flylng-square-sail,”
or a stunsbil—ls to set it from the deck;
but greased yards, flying square sails, and
stun-sails, are nearly obsolete.
Fore-and-aft canvas is in several dis
tinct design*, the moat common and im
portant of which is the trapesium-shaped
pattern of a sailboat's largest sail. As
a sail alone, it has no name, unless
"schooner-rig" is a name; it is a main
sail, a fore-sail, mlzzen, jigger, spanker,
or trysail, according to the type of the
vessel and the name of the mast which
support* it. Its characteristics are its
immovable forward edge, or luff, secured
to mast hoops, and Us gaff which ex
tends the upper edge. It may or may
not have a boom at Its lower edge, and
the gefT may hoist from the deck, or re
main fixed up aloft, while the sail travels
out and in on hoops. Above this sail In
schooners and large sloops is a triangular
gaff-topsail, filling the space between the
gaff and the topmast; and In racing
yachts, a large light-weather sail fitted
■with small spars to extend it out past
the end of the gaff, and up above the top
mast head, is called a club-topsail.
Jibs and staysails are triangular, and
are hoisted on a fixed, slanting rope, call
ed a stay—whose main mission is to sup
port a mast from forward—which grips
the upper edge, leaving the rest of the
sail to the control of the "sheet"—a rope,
be It known, not a sail.
sails give luggers their name. A
lug is shaped like a schooner's mainsail,
but Is hung to yards Instead of gaff, and,
when hoisted, about a quarter of this
yard extend* forward of the mast, leav
ing the forward edge free, but for the
confining tension of * lie upper and lower
corner—one secured to the end of the
yard, the other to the deck.
A lateen sail also hangs from a yard:
but, the sail being triangular, the for./
ward end of this yard Is hauled down
snug to the deck, and the after end is
high In air. It Is a picturesque rig, very
common on Oriental seas.
A leg-of-mutton Is a gaff-less trian
gle hoisting on mast-hoops, and extend
ing aft with, or without, a boom on its
lower edge. This design of sail is often
used on board large ships for a spanker,
or try-sail, on yawl-rigged smaller craft,
on sailboats and on pleasure ranoes; hut
wherever used, It Is a compromise—a
makeshift where a fuN-cut sail with a
gaff would be too large. With sails pat
terned on these half doxen designs are
dreaoed the sailing craft of the maritime
narfions; and, until lately, one and all
have agreed that the square or ship rig

ships, farther up still as a ekysallmaal.
