Sailors Don’t Matter

   “The bows of the Napier Star had ripped through the bows of the Laurentic into the quarters of the crew, where a score of men were sleeping. How near disaster came to catastrophe was also evident. Had the Napier Star struck twenty yards further astern she would have cut clean into the first-class staterooms.”—From the news.

If you are thinking of becoming a journalist, child, always remember that when death comes to an ordinary sailor it is mere disaster. When it comes to first-class passengers it is a catastrophe.
