Sparks From the Engine
A. M. Barnum traveling passenger
agent of the Piedmont Air L'ne is in
the olty today on hie way to Guaymas.

"How do you ascertain the poed of
a sliipi is a question frequently ad-
dressed to naval men and an explana-
tion will therefore probably Ihj of in-
terest to many readers. There are sev
eral methods says Army and Navy Il-
lustrated tha commonest and most an-
cient being by the use of the "log. "
This instrument consists of three parts
the loship the line and the marks.
The logship is a piece of wood abont
half an inch thick and f-haped like a
quadrant with a piece of lead let in
round tbe circular edge to make it flout
perpendicularly in the water. It is hung
by lines at each angle the three lines
being joined together abont two fett
from the logship. Two of the lines are
securely fixed to the ship and the
other has a bone peg at the end. which
being pushed into a hole in the ship
temporarily fastens it there. From tbe
point of juncture of the three lines a
sufficient length ia measured generally
about 100 feet to take the logship weil
clear of the ship's wash. This is called
the "stray line" and is marked with a
piece of bnnting. Froin the hunting is
measured 47 feet 8 inches and the line
marked here with a piece of leather.
Then another 47 feet 3 inches is meas-
ured off and marked with two knots
then another space the same length
and marked with three knots and so on
as far as seven knots. Half way between
each batch of knots one single knot is
made. The log line is then ready for
The space between the knots is found
from the simple little rule of three mm:
As 3600 seconds (number of seconds in
an hour) 28 seconds (length of sand-
glass) 0.080 feet (number of feet in n
nautical mile) length of line required
which works out to 47 feet 3 inches.
To use the log four iersons are re
quired two men to hold the reel on
which the line is wound the quarter
master to hold the glass and the mid-
shipman of the watch to heave the log.
The last named puts the peg firmly in
the logship and then gathers three or
four coils of line in his hand sufficient
to admit of the logship beinir thrown
well clear of the ship. He asks "Clear
glass qnartermaster ?" "Clear glass.
sir I" cornea the reply and overboard
goes the logship and line the reel rapidly
revolving. Presently the middy feels the
piece of bunting passing through his
hand and he gives the order "Turn."
The quartermaster turns the glass and
watches the sand while one "reeler"
holds well over his head eo as to give
the line fair play. When the sand has
ran out "Stopl" cries the quartermas-
ter. The midshipman grasps the line
assisted by the other "reeler" and looks
for the nearest knot finding a single one
close to his hand. Then tae line is haul-
ed in and four knots appear which sig-
nify that the ship ia going 4 J knots
through the water. The jerk of the line
draws the peg from the logship which
now floats on its flat side and is easily
hauled in. When a ship is going over
four knots a 14 second glass is used
the speed being double that shown by
the knots on the line.
"One moraine." said Old Clew the de-
tective "a messenger came to head-
quarters from one of the substations
with the information that the mutilated
body of a handsomely dressed man had
been found thumping with the tide
against one of the Kast river bulkheads.
"I happened to be on duty at the time
and at once made my way to the wharf
where the body was secured.
"When the body was drawn from the
water and stretched out all dripping.

burst from the lins of the bystanders as
their eves fell nnon a terrible trash in

coroner I proceeded to search the vic

the morgue for identi6cation and I re
turned to the otlice. taking the coffee
grains with me. I had already formed a
theorv and had some slight hopes of
working out the mystery.
"For three d:iys the body remained at
the morgue before it was identified. A
Boston firm had seen the keeper's ad-
vertisement giving a description of the
man's dress and general appearance and
when one of the firm came on he at once
recognized the remains as those of their
confidential clerk who had left Boston
for Xew York nbont a week previously
on business for the firm.
"I called on this gentleman and learned
from him that Mr. Freeman the murder
ed man had been the owner of a beauti-
ful watch diamond studs and sleeve but-
tons and that he most likely had sev
eral hundred dollars in money about him
at the time he was killed.
"Having ascertained this much I went
to work. To trie the coffee grains spoke
volumes and I read my way out of the
mystery quite clearly.
'.My hrst dodge was the adoption or a
suitable disguise. I assumed that of a
'cnnaller.' The latter term you know is
applied by thieves to all greenies from
the country. When properly rigged for
my purpose 1 sallied forth and com-
mencing at a point some ten blocks be
low where the body was found I took in
every drinking place from thence on the
river front up to ten blocks above. I was
looking for a barroom where coffee
grains allspice and cloves were kept on
the bar as taste killers. But they were
all low places that I entered and I did
not find those condiments set out in any
of them so I took one street back and
traversed the same as I had the river
front and. finding none there. I took the
next and here I found my gin mill with
coffee grains on ihe bar. It was situated
on the corner of the street which termi

had been found.

"You may just bet Herbert that I had
no intention of leaving; things were
working nicely. It was fully 20 min

when he did so I noticed that he had not
been shared but as I meant to shave him
a trifle close I did not bother myself
"Five minutes after his return the bar-
tender was followed by two of the worst
