Masters of tramp steamers do not have any of the pleasures of family that Iho cap- tains of regular ilners onjoy. It often han- pene 'that a niaster ef. a tramp steamer UUVM not see his famllv for several years at a time, especially If it so happens that ho hus had hard luck, needing, every cent that ho can secure to make boul meet.

They hailed one another, and there were excJtlng times on board both vessels But then they did not get a chance to en- gage In conversation. At the expiration of: twenty years tney met In Rotterdam nind there had or four days together On the lost voyage to Galvestorn, in Decem- ber, they wore together nearly the whole time that the steamers remained In port for they both an-rived about the same time and sailed within a day or two of each other.
