Skillet! sonmanship saved the British borkentine Edith Sheraton, which arrived at Jfew.'York recently from M;i- coris, Siinto/Domingo, from being overwhelmed by gigantic waterspouts while njt Cape tlti.ttenis. As it WHS, the vessel'nnrro.wly Escaped being, sent to the bottom with all hands. When the mate went on deck at eight i). m. to take charged the port watch, the wind was blowing light from the Kouth, and the burkentine was running free under all sail. Overhead was a clear-sky, und the sun was blistering the deck with h«it, but p.wny to the westward appeared a black overhanging mass that speedily betokened a squall. The wind began to shift to the westward iii live minutes, but still held light, and the vessel lay almost motionless. Looking again toward the black tiiass of. clouds to westward, the mate taw what looked like gniy lingerso'va- por reaching downward from the low- or edges toward the sea. These gray lingers, 15 miles away, had grown to enormous columns that reached clown ;:linost to the ocean's surface. Grout spirals o[ water arose to meet the columns, and then tight enormous water 1 i-pouts came swirling toward the Kdith Sheraton. Th> formation ot the waterspouts had not taken more than 15 miuuies, but the wind in that.time had veered ctfliiplftely to the westward, and had freshened' enough to give' t'ae vessel steerage way. « On the rapidly approaching spouts- came; gathering force and volume in their progress, but still the wiud that blew over the barkentine was little more than a fresh breeze. Th<! great whirling columns appeared to start nbreast of one another, but ;.fter traversing luilt the distance to the vessel they appeared in a straggling low, Tnakiiig a y.ig-xag course that rendered escape for the vessel a hard problem: Two of the great spouts were THE SPOUTS HISSED AS THEY CAME. 1'wshirig straight for ..the bnrkentine, but the vessel rapidly fell off before the wind; 'and the whirling' columns passed to sturboard of her, as did four others. Two more spouts were left to deal •with,' and "at one time it was almost, certain thnlone or both of these vast bodies would.strike the Sheraton. One of the spouts towered fully a thousand feet Into the clouds. At jt.s base, from the deck of tbe^ barkentine, the. .-hug*! spiral appeared fully 50 feet in diameter, ,'ind the top of this enormous.fun- nel of water was at least 150 feet across. The big spout was now within 800 yards nnd traveling, as the others wore,, lit tJifi rate of 20.knots an hour. They were urged on. by the squall in the clouds, far above the barkentine, which. rtill had a fresh breeze. The spouts hissed us they caine, ns if a DiillJon serpents were entwined about them'or ft rnnltitnde 'of steam valves had been opened at once. .;,.:, The distance between the colossal n pou<-. that threatened the Shem'ton and the vessel was rapidly lessening, and the big column of water "was not more than 000-yards away, when. Capt: Mitchell suddenly ' jnmmed clown the helm. Jlonvily laden though she was, the Kdiih Sheraton poked her- nose in the wind, and the waterspout rushed by .on the port beam. At almost the same instant the smaller spout rushed post within 30 feet of the sturboard bow. . . •• The clanger was past. The vast volumes of wa*er were rushing on to the oastwnrd. the squall- had passed overhead "mil the Edith Sheraton was safe. Jri le&s than 30 minutes the spouts bad broken, one after another, and the sun c-ame out as briglitly ns-^before. Cllml) » free to Marry.

During the last two years expeditions sent out by the bureau of American ethnology have collected many interesting facts about the Sen Indians, who live in the western part of the state of Sonora, Mexico, along the shore of the Gulf of California and on the island of mburon in that gulf. The facts have recently been summarized by Prof. W J. McGee, of Washington. From time immemorial Seriland has remained practically unexplored, partly because it lies beyond a desert barrier, ajid partly on account of the warlike reputation of its fierce nnd bloodthirsty inhabitants, who "profess a passion for alien blood, always gratified, save when they are deterred by fear." The Seri Indians aj-e described as of "superb physique, able to run down fleet game an (V capture half-wild Mexican horses without ropes or projectiles; able to run across the desert, waterless and foodless, so rapidly us to' escape pursuing.- horsemen; able to abstain from food and water for days: able habitually to pass barefoot through cactus and over jogged ror.k slopes without thought of discomfort." They spsaU a distinct language, and strictly practice monogamous marriage. Their hatred for alien peoples is hereditary. The remains of ancient ruins 'in Seriland indicate that ita inhabitants have always Itept their country free from foreign invasion, nnd that for centures their customs and arts, which are crude and simple, have remained unchanged.

Explorer Franklin was the first white man who' ever set eyes on the marvel. The natives who showed it to him told him that it hud been there forever, and all through .those northern rt'#ions the lame of it has lived among the tribes from time immemorial. They call it "the great jroti stone." . • lio\v big this nionster tcnss of soft iron is not even the Esquimaux know, for only a small portion of it protrudes above the ground. It is, judged only by whafis visible, worth a.fat fortune, even in these dnys of billionaires. The two men who have .entered on this swift race, with this huge iron goal, are- Lieut. R. 12. Peary, o.f Arctic fame, and Prof. L. L. Dyche, of tho University of Kansas, There is a dispute between the two explorers as to .wuiuh is the real owner of the meteorite. Lieut. Peary insists upon, the priority of his claim, but.Prof. Dyche says that when he went, to Greenland to bring- Peaa-y back from, his ill-fated Arctic expedition, the natives showed the wonder to them both, and both spoke then of the feasibility of. bringing it to •the United States. Now Prof. PJyehe has disappeared, bound on some far, mysterious mission, and the wise ones at the west sny he hasg-onetogetthemeteorite. Fromhis home in Kansas tlie word comes that THE JSO.OCO METEORITE. after leaving tZiere, which he, did quietly, he went to Cbkwgro end then came to' New York. In boti citiies ho has yy«altby friends who have promised to back him with money in his biff niuler- tokin?. .' Eut.thelatestexplunationof the whole mutter, says the New York Journal, is even more stnrtling. Last winter Prof . Dyche said to a reporter for a Kansas C'ity newspaper that he was secretly planning for this summer a .journey of Arctic discovery, which, if it should prove successful, .would, be one of the BTea-tcst ventures of the century. His programme was, he said, to go to Akislcnv. and from there miilte.n trip DCI'CSB the very northernmost boundaries of North America, coming otit somewhere in Labrador. Tie. would gather on the wny specimens of ani- inals. flora arid geolog-ica.1 formations for tlie Kansas university, nnd, besides n.ll these, would bring 1 back n treasure: from the north t.hnt would startle the scientific world. Now, bearing in "rn.'nd the decln rations he rhnde before his departure about the rinffinfi- of; the • meteorite and, his in- isputab'le. claim to t.he^ppssession. of it. the theory' 1 which his friends admit may be the rifjht one is *hnt while heia jour- npyinjr .'.'across t.hc crontinent.' from; .\Taska, vessels equipped by 'his wealthy New Yor.k afcd Chicns'o friends are to be taken to the..nort,h; thnt he nnd nisi party ire ta join them there ond proceed to the.siteof the meteorite and stay right by.it at any cost. . .
