Johbcrs an other wholesalers are sending out or are about to send out coniinercialtravellcrs, and -in many in- stances have not finished the years ac- counts and stock taking. A tabulation of Brndstrcct’s telegraphed rc arts from the more important trai e centres does not revéal specially ho cful views as to an improvement in usincss in the near future. In many instances trade rcvivul is declared to depend on a settlcnicnt of the currency ques- Thc most encouraging expressions of opinion are that mcrchimts ar_c_hopeful. Among more favorable conditions are reports that stocks of goods of all descrip- tions in the hands of jobbcrs. manufactur- ers and retailers, west and nortliwcst, are gcncrallysmaller than usual at this season, that the business of the year in dry goods, hats,sliocs,millinery and groceries, has been fairly satisfactory and’ that cold weather has stimulated demand for coal and seasonable fabrics.

DESCRIPTION OF THE LAURCEING OF‘ THE LIFEBOAT.

Ea:-lions Journey of the Little Bax-qno on Her Way to Rescue the Cr-ow.of is sinking Ship—ShoB1<les the Waves Manned by Sturdy seamen.

I Written for the Nor’-Waiter. Down came the storm and smote nmain ' That vc.-ssel in her strength: She shnddered and paused like 3 frightcdstcod. Then leaped be: mble's length.

The long line of the Jersey coast, tram Sandy Book to Atlantic City was alive with pleasure seekers, for itwas the season of summer outing, when society in its manifold formsseeks suburban shades and cool retreats; the many beautiful villas along the shore presented a gay aspect, all nature was picturesque and grand, as the gentle breakers came rolling inland from the ocean's bosom to lose themselves on the sandy beach. Mingling midst the crowd might be seen occasionally one or more of the members of the life-savinsz sta- tions which the United States Government has erected at distances of every few miles or more along the coast. Those hardy fellows were notso disposed to revel in the luxuries of seaside life, on the con- trary the seemed to move along as if fearful o 8. coming call to duty, and not at all enthusiastic over the beauties of the azure sky of that summer day. Perhaps they had reason for presenting such a careworn look i It was the sixteenth day of September; the autumnal equinox was at hand, and as mariners know, alas ! too well, the equinoctial gales were fast approaching. This is why the life-saving crews were so pen- sive. More than once had they experienc- ed the dangers of their avocation at the equinoctial season and they knew not but on the marrow they would be called out to rescue the lives of many a drowning mari- ner. Towards night the sky became over- cast in angry clouds, the wind arose and increased in violence, and ere the man youthful occupants of the villas and hoste - ries had retired for well earned repose, the storm was on.

The mornin dawned midst frightful forebodin s; uring tho live-long night the wind owlcd and hissed and blew a hurricane, and at daybreak the beach was strewn with wreckage. No host of mer- rymiikers went then abroad on the strand, the bathing houses and pavilions were deserted, except by the life-savers and the few who ventured forth to view the storm in its fury. Walls of water came rolling in with mighty force as if they could de- molish everything in their way. Hugo monster waves dashed up against the bul- vvnrks of the plavilion, and sprin mg back- ward leaped igh in air,thenfal inglwitha terriilc crash which resounded t rough the place. , Never was sight more

nd, though awful in its consequences. Eliakncss .of the night came on and added to the terror of the situation. The life-savers were on the beach peer- im: out over the waters in watch for auy unfortuunates who might be at the mercy of the storm. About ten o'clock a dim flickering ii ‘iii; was seen in the dis- tancc. From t c. manner in which it burned it gave indications of distress, and at once the alarm bell sounded calling the crew of the station to their posts. The alarm also had the effect of bringing out the entire opnlation of Sea Girt. who knew full we 1 what. that sound indicated. An old man, hrawny and rough of feature, was one of the first on the scene. Alrcadylie was attired in ii. garb which bespoke his calling and was active and alert, giving lllSl.l".1Ci5l2'>.’13 to the younger men around him. He was the captain of the station, and as an old war horse who smells the scent of powder, he was wide awake to the demands of the occasion. “She must; be two miles out at sea, boys,” he cried. “and unless I am mis- taken she is calling for help." The li ht was now ,no longer seen: it iad disappeared. Who could tell but the barque had plunged forever under the waves. Indeed there was no knowing, for such a storm could sink the mightiest of crafts. Moments of excite- ment and suspense followed the vanishing of the li ht; the crew rushed up an down. the each, anxiously on the look-out. Again a dim flame appeared above the horizon, and in flickers shone upon the waters. It seemed but ii. speck. Brighter and brighter it became, until now it was distinctly visible. drifting inland,” the old tar

“She is _ cried out, “Get ready. boys, to man the‘ lifeboat,‘ and with that a

dozen or more willing and stalwart hands

were tn ging at the ropes which fastened

the liti. e hark to her moorings. Then it was that enthusiasm and excitement and nervous anxiety all became manifest in the cro'wd. Strong men turned pale in fear women sobbed. and children cried,

whi e never a word of remonstrance came from the lips of the crew. The boat was in readiness to go to sea; the vessel giving sig- nal of distress drifted hither and thither at the mercy of the waves. Like a spectre she appeared above the horizon. Fast she was being swept inland until her form could be discerned dimly in the distance —shc was not mrm than aquurterofauilie

from shore. \Vhat if she slionld continue on her inward course, she surely would go to wreck, before reaching the beach, and therefore now was the moment when the lifeboat should be launched and every cf- fort made to rescue those who were in dan- ger. But who would venture forth in such an angry sea ? W'hat. bark or craft could ride those monstrous waves and live through the storm? Many a time and oft. did those brave fellows venture out upon the seas when the fiercest of bar- ricanes was blowing, yet it did seem as if the ocean never before was so milled in fury as at that hour.

Several attempts were made to launch the life boat, but each time a huge breaker tossed her high and dry upon the beach. Standin beneath the lurid glare of the beacon llg twhich was the signal of distress the crew of the helpless vessel could now be seen watcliing every move going on at the shore. Their lives were in imminent peril; every moment might be their last for the disabled ship was fast going to pieces.

rnnow our rm: Lin:-LIKE.’

“Boys, we had better throw out the life- line," the Captain of the station said. “It seems impossible to reach them in the boat."

They then commenced to shoot, out the life-lines but could never manage to gair. the vessel. She was drifting and plung- ing and rolling and making so, that every attempt at reaching her was unsuc- cessful. Each moment she was approach- ing nearer and nearer to her doom. Then she began to move outto sca again. fly this time the crowds on shore grew im- patient. As long as the unfortunate sea- men _were within hailing distance, all was well, they thought, but when they saiv them being swc t farther from land, they could not s the strain and begged the captain imploringly to again man the life boat. He yielded, not be- cause of their impartunities, but because- he saw that this was the only possible salvation for the crew of the wreck. ‘What a task it was to undertake! What danger to be encountered! Yes true indeed, a most perilous venture. But. it \?'l'L_S an bunrof need; the lives of.ihe mariners were at stake, and if it be within the limltof human yfiwer to rescue them, rescued they will .

buoyant, yet surrounded by dimst danger’ on every side. Those brave fel-

lows manned that tiny barqnc as onlv

they could do. Like a little cork which the child in vain endeav- ors to submerge in the shallow

pool, that life-boat climbed the waves propelled by strong and sturdy arms and guided as best she could by on- e eye. Farther and farther she re- céde from the shore. nearer and nearer sh_e approa‘ched the helpless and drifting s 11:, until to the onlookers standing on e beach, she seemed to be under the bow of the first sinking craft. Eager cycs followed her pathway throiigh the waters and watched her ploughing her way over the billosvs. ‘At times she was seen to be lifted bodily by some huge breaker. from whose voting crest she would safely glide. Like ama dened steed, she plunged, and rose and sunk, and rose again. SHE nnacmas run win-zcx.

‘Afters series of desperate ciforts and frightful encounters the life-boat at last bed the now sinking ship. Additional torches were lit, and the flames from them shone out afar through the dark- ness of the dreary night. The movements of the men in the boat and on the craft Were visible on land. Crowds stood upon the beach watching intently the surging waves as they dashed mountain high, new con- cealing the gallant rescuers, and again lifting them almost above the deck of the doomed vessel. Thegesavv the ropes being cast out to the men low, saw the boat- men steady themselves, and then beheld the work of transferring the crew to the lifeboat. It was_ a rand sight, though fraught with peril. .."o more noble deed was ever recorded, and when at last after all had been taken on board and the life-boat was cut loose, the rescu- ers again plied their oars. a shout of joy went up from the mustitnde. The wel- come which those brave fellows got from all hands was in 11 measure some retribu- tion for their heroic effort, and when they returned to the shore loving hearts greet- ed tliem in joy unbounded. The storm still raged in its fnrv; the deserted ship was being lashed mercilessly by cruel waves, an the hideous howl of the raging pillows was but the forcwarn of her doom.
