the foot of a large mountain, and lies
right on' the bank of what is locally

with thousands and probably millions of
large fish, which are constantly passing
to and fro between the two lakes, and
areas constantly jumping out of water
insight of the town. They are of all
sorts and sizes.
Some of them appear to be cutting up
those antics for the fun of the thing, and
some to shake some kind of an eellike
f looking creature which attacks them in
the water and becomes attached to their
sides, causing the fish apparently much
suffering. It is no uncommon thing for
large fish to be taken there whose sides
are all scarred up in consequence, of these

fish were thus destroyed. Probably

A Conventional Castes.
One of the simplest instincts of good
manners would seem to be that a man
should uncover his head while eating his
dinner with his family; yet it is pretty
certain that the first gentlemen of - En
land two centuries ago habitually wore
their hats during that ceremony, nor is
it known just when or why the practice
was chanced. In Pepvs' famous Diary.
which is tbe best manual or manners ior
its period, we read, under date of Sept.
22, 1664, 'Home to bed, having got a
strange cold in my head byfliifginjoff
my hat at dinner and sitting with tbe
wind in my neck."
In Lord Clarendon's essay on the decay
of respect paid to age he says that in hi?
younger days he never kept his hat on
before those older than himself except
at dinner. Lord Clarendon died m 1674
That the English members of parlia
ment sit with their hats on during the
sessions is well known, and the same
practice prevailed at the early town
meetings in New England. The presence
or absence of the hat is therefore simply a
conventionality, and so it is with a
thousand practices which are held, so
long as they exist, to be the most un
changeable and matter of course affairs.

All men who employ animals in work

many years yet of doing excellent trot

trials of speed.

a well founded suspicion that buckwheat cakes made in '

The new way does away with all fermentation, souring;

To Have New Eyelids.
Harvey Chaffee, of East Valley, a well
known oil contractor, who was badly
(buned by a natural gas explosion on the
7th of May, is in the city for the purpose
of having the skin grafting process tried
on him. Mr. Chaffee was very severely
roasted. The skin was burned off his
face and neck, and ten holes were left in
his head. The most serious scorching
was that upon the eyelids. They were
completely burned off both eyes, and in
their stead at present is the raw, in
flamed and swollen flesh. The sight is
most repulsive,- but Mr. Chaffee bears
bis misfortune with great fortitude.
When asked if his injuries were pain'
ful, he replied: "Yes, sir, they hurt me
right smart at times, but it takes a great
deal to make me grunt. I can stand a
heap. You ought to have seen me when
I was burned. My ears were as big as
your fist and my head as big as a half
bushel measure. I was a regular sight.
You can ask my wife there," and he re
ferred the reporter to a pleasant woman
who sat near..

by Dr. F. D. Edsall, who said that he
would cut the material for Mr. Chaffee s
eyelids out of the patient's arm. Except
for his burns Mr. Chaffee was in a
healthy condition, and his&wn cuticle
would perhaps knit more rapidly than
that from another person. The new
eyelids will be bereft of eyelashes, bnt

Twenty Posad Salmon for a Cent Apiece.
The present wonderful run of salmon
has so glutted the market that for some
time these silver sided beauties have
been selling at five cents apiece, but the
price took a tumble yesterday and sev
eral fishermen sold a boat load of fine
salmon, weighing about twenty pounds
each, at the pitiful price of one cent
apiece. One cent for a twenty pound
silver salmon, the finest quality of that
excellent fish, is the lowest price perhaps
that a food fish ever sold for in this or
any other country, but salmon are so
plentiful that people do not know what
to do with them.
It is estimated that enough fish could
be taken there in one day to fill 1,000
barrels. Fishermen say they can make
big money bv selling salmon, at a cent
apiece to the canneries if they will only
buy all they can catch. Une man caught
fourteen with a gill hook attached to a
hoe handle yesterday, and another man
claims to -have found them in such num
bers in shallow water in the Dungeness
that he threw them out with a pitchfork
and soon got fish enough to last for a
month. Fort Townsend Leader.
Sharks In ZMVg Island Sound.
An unusual number of large sharks
was reported during September in Long
Island and Fisher's Island sounds. To
these the name of man eater is generally
applied. As a matter of fact, however,
the true man eating shark (Carcharodon
carcharias) is rarely seen on our coast.
This species grows to a length of twenty-five
feet and to the weight of one ton,
being surpassed in size only by the bask
ing shark. It is a relative of the enor
mous shark whose teeth occur fossil in
the phosphate beds of South Carolina.
Any shark measuring nine or ten feet in
length is liable to be called a man eater,
and not without warrant, for all of them
will attack man with slight provocation
or when suffering from hunger. Forest
Crime la the Air.
It has been frequently noticed that
there are epidemics of robberies as well
as of suicides and other crimes. A crim
inal epidemic, peculiar to a half dozen
large cities of the United States that
have a large and vicious population, is
that of Sunday murders, which are the
results of a day of idleness. Then,
again, murders with peculiar features
often occur in groups in all parts of the
country. In France there is a tradition,
centuries old, that epidemics of suicide
return in regular cycles, at each recur
rence of the suicidal furor the succes
sive victims of their own murderous
hands vising with one another in the
greater ghastlihess of the tragedy that
Stories -of wife murders in various
parts of the country, relieved by a few
exceptional murders of husbands by
by their wives, reach the press simul
taneously from many different ' sources.
"Murder is m the air has become a
stereotyped expression among newspaper
men and detectives, who know from ex
perience thatsuch epidemics will run
-their cycles and cause many bloody
records to be made before they have
spent their fury.
With bank robberies it is the same.
It is not often that a single robbery is
made one is sure to breed others; "they
come not singly, but in whole battal
ions." This is not because the same
gang engages in many different enter
prises, but because a universal similar
impulse permeates the minds of the
classes devoted to that form of guilt.

"If the new engine I am about to
have constructed is not capable or mak
ing 100 miles an hour Til give her away
to the first person I meet"
This astounding statement was made
by Mr. Jacksoa Richards, the master
mechanic of the Philadelphia and Read
ing railroad. Mr. Richards has been
working on his latest invention for the
nast. ten vears. and a few days ago tho
drawings were completed and the pat
ent was applied for.
In outward appearance the new loco
motive will not differ materially from
the speedy engines now used. The pe
culiarity of construction lies in the fact
that instead oE the two cylinders as used
at present there will be four. One cylin
der will be located on each side of the
locomotivo frame as at present, and the
other two will be cast in what is known
as the cylinder saddle. The inside pair
of cylinders are to be in one piece and
will lie on an angle. The outside cylin
ders are to be horizontal as at present.
The four cylinders will entirely over
come what is known to engineers as the
dead center, and the engine will be per
fectly balanced without any counter
balance in the wheels.
This latter improvement will, to a
large degree, do away with the vicious
pounding which has proved so destruc
tive to modern roadbeds. The perfect
balancing of the engine will be largely
due to tho working of the two cylin
ders so near her center, and these same
cylinders, working as they do from such
a central point of vantage, will help out
in the matter of speed to a great degree.

Sermon by Tclephono In England.
The transmission of sermons by tele

are unable to attend church services,
which was. experimented with in Eng

Twenty-four calls were recently re
ceived at the telephone office for connec

town, and as the number of subscribers
there probably numbered not more than
sixty, it is evident that the privilege of
hearing the sermon without going to the
church for it was appreciated. In many
of the large towns in England, especially
in Manchester, Nottingham, Stafford,
Wolverhampton, the church telephone
service has come to be quite an institu

The suit of Joseph Troop brings ont a
mostremarkable story. Thirty-one years

Carter in Ohio. Four weeks after the
wedding Joseph went to the front as a
soldier. Ho fousht for four years, and
finally was hit by a Confederate bullet
and was left for dead on the held. JN ew

Nevertheless, he recovered after sev
eral months' suffering in a hospital, and
in 18GC ha returned to Ohio to claim his
bride. But she had left and could not

and years, and finally heard tliat she was
dead. .Meanwhile he had met another
charming young lady and the two "were
finally married. For twenty-three years
thev have lived together, and in addition
to accumulating a handsome fortune
they have been blessed with several sons
and dantrbters. one now of age.
A week ago, while at the state reunion
of soldiers at Grand island, Troop was
introduced to a widow by the same
name. A few minutes' conversation re
vealed tho fact that the gray haired lady
was his bride of over thirty j-ears ago.
The old soldier was dnmfounded, and
hurried to his Lincoln home to bear the

could part her from him. and sent word

Saved from Suicide by ills Hog'
An intelligent pet dog owned by Louis
Schmidt, of Camden, has prevented him
from committing suicide.
Schmidt is just recovering from a seri
ous attack of typhoid fever, which left
him very nervous and subject to fits of
melancholia. He was seized with one of
these spells Monday night, and while his
wife was asleep he stole to the kitchen.
Here he procured a rope and making
a noose tied one end to an iron hook in
the wall. Then procuring a chair he
adjusted the rope, and kicking away the
chair swung himself off, as he thought,
into eternity. But, unknown to Schmidt,
his faithful dog had followed him, and
instinctively knowing something was
wrong the intelligent animal went back
to the bedroom whining pitifully. Final
ly he awoke Mrs. Schmidt by tugging at
the bed clothing and rubbing his cold
nose in her face, and she followed the
dog down stairs as soon as she missed
Thero she found him hanging from
the hook. She managed to cut him
down in time to save his life. Philadel

Josejih Stevens, an Oxford farmer, has
a sow and four well grown pigs, which
ran in an orchard where the limbs of
tho trees are quite low and laden with
apples. The old sow springs up and
catches a limb and shakes it, thus bring
ing down tho apples, which she and her
family quickly devour. After getting in
this way all she can reach, one pig
climbs on the mother's back and reaches
a higher limb, which she shakes vigor
ously, bringing down a fresh supply of
fruit. Worcester Gazette.
Chemistry on tho F;ina.
Many farmers laugh at the notion cf
applying the principles of chemistry 03
the farm, calling such an application of
science "foolinK" and humbug. Yet
farmers see their sons grow up and drift
away because, having been educated in
the public schools, the spini of a scien
tific and progressive age has possessed
them, and they seek elsewhere than upon
an old fashioned farm scope for the edu
cation which they have already gained
and for the wider education which they
Now there is no field which offers more
amplo scope for an educated and scien
tific mind than a good farm. The old
fashioned farmer sajs. "What do I want
to know about chemistry? It's enough
if I manure the ground and plant my
seed; nature will take care of the rest."
But the application of manure is
"chemistry," and if the farmer or his
boy understands the groundwork of that
science he knows what kind of manuro
is good for a certain field and what kind
is good for another field, and his knowl
edge may make for him or save for him
many dollars in a single year.
A knowledge of chemistry will enable
him to save the valuable properties of
his manures for the soil, instead of let
ting precisely those properties be evapo
rated and wasted, as they are in the case
of most natural manures as now treated
on the farms of this country.
But the most important function ot
science on the farm, after all, at the pres
ent time, is not the immediate material
advantage which it may bring to the
fanner, but the means which it will sup
ply of interesting the young, of engaging
their active and eager intelligence, and
keeping them from places where they
will be very much worse off. Youth's
Cruelty to Lobsters.
It is singular how the cruel practice
of boiling lobsters alive continues. Our
forefathers and, indeed, our parents
let calves bleed slowly to death, on the
theory that in no other way could white
meat bo secured, and later on calves
were bled one day and killed the next.
Now every one knows that a calf can be
killed in a humane manner and the veal
made just as good. Hogs are largely
killed by electricity instead of by the
old barbarous method; and, generally
speaking, animals killed for food have
been put out of the way in a much more
humane manner than formerly. But
lobsters are still tortured out of exist
ence, the only difference being that,
while formerly they were exclusively
boiled to death, now some are boiled
and some broiled. Which process causes
the most agony no one can say. St.
Some Foolish People
Allow a cough to run until it gets be

say, "Oh. it will wear awaj'," but in most
cases it wears them away. Could they be

called Kemp's Balsam, which is sold on a

immediately see the excellent effect niter
