Fislit'S nro not ordlnnrlly supposed
to hy gifted with miy prcnt amount of
intelligence, but an Incident which oc
uirrcd In n "Washington homo a fow
days ngo proves that they havo n keen
sme of humor and nro fond of prnntl
( al lokiiijr. One of the young women
of the liouo In question has for pets ;i
bnby mud lurtlo nnd several gold llslies.'
'1 he turtle Is frequently placed In the
fniiii tank with the lisli. The other
day he lay Moating on the surface of
Uio water nslecp, and with his four
feet slicking out.
The sohfilsh saw in this n io.il
chance to play a trick on .Mr. Turtle,
and after pulling their heads toiicther a
few minutes they divided into four
proups nnd seizing his feet In luulr
mouths drajtfred him to the bottom of
the tank. When awakened by his sud
den immersion, he had considerable
dilllculty In shaking himself frco from
his tormentors There cannot be the
slightest doubt that tho fishes had some
means of communicating their Ideas to
each other, fur it was plain to thoso who
observed tho Incident that tho trick was
the result or preconcerted action.
An amusing specimen of human
hogglshncss was witnessed tho other day
In a well known Seventh-street Ice
eicam saloon. A young man, who
from tho style of his clothes nnd the
verdancy of his manner was evidently
from the country, walked In, hand-In-hnud
with a young woman who had an
equally rustle appearance. Uoth sat
down at one of the tables nnd the younn
man ordered one dish of" ice-cream. It,
was for tlio girl, of course, one would
naturally Mipposo. Not a bit of it,
however. Tho young man calmly ate
it himself, apparently with great relish,
planked down tho price on tho table
and remarked: "Gosh, but that's e;ood;
why don't you buy yourself some, too,
Sal J" "Sal" said something about its
costing too much, ami out they walked
"It Is a crying shame and a disgrace
that an appropriation Is not made for
a new Police Court building, or de
cent quarters hired for It somewhero,"
remarked a well-known lawyer. "If
any private individual or corporation
were to attempt to transact their busi
ness is such a place as the present Po
lice Court they would bo arrested for
maintaining a nuisance. Many people
who should bo punished for vnrlous
oflcnscs against the law are permitted
to go free, blmply because decent peo
ple will not go into such a dirty mal
odorous hole as tho old building at tho
corner of SiNlh street and Louisiana
avenue, in order to prosecute them. It
Is positively dangerous to stay in it for'
any length of time, and I alwiyshavc
gicat hesitation in accept!'' a casci
which necessitates my pre' jo there."

The interesting process of hatching
the eggs of land-locked salmon by tho
hundreds of thousands can be witnessed
any day at the central station of the
Fish Commission In tho old Armory
building, corner of Sixth street -and
jlninc avenuo southwest. The eggs of
the salmon are about the sizo of a pea.
They are of a transparent, pinkish hue,
and tho wee fishes inside can be plainly
seen wilggling about in their efforts to
escape from their littlo prison cells. As
soon as released the lishos aro drawn
through a syphon and tuuo in tho
hatching, jar to a tank, whero they can
sport about until largo enough for ship
ment on the Fish Commission cars to
the points whero they are destined to
stock land-locked lakes or largo ponds.
Thousands of these llshes will bo
shipped during tho next few weeks.
In the meantime numbers of visitors
call daily at the station to witness their
Another interesting featuro of the
station nro the experiments being mode
with thousands of the common yellow
perch, natives of the Potomac River.
These fishes are hardy and form n val
unblo portion of the small or fry-fish
supply of this city.
It is wonderful how the value of
property has Increased In tho central
portion of the city, especially in tho lo
cality of Tenth and Eleventh, F and 0
streets. St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum
at Tenth and G streets, opposite St.
Patrick's Chiirch, was built years ago,
when ground nnd building material
were cheap: Tho lot, Witch I a
spacious one, runs back to T. eventh nnd
G streets. It is one of the m l desirable
bites for the building of bu incss houses
in tlio city. It is learned fiom a reliable
source that $300,000 has been offered
and refused for the-property.
BMiop Newman, who was General
Grant's pastor at tho Metropolitan
Mcthoditt Episcopal Church, wants,
with other professorships at tho pro
posed National Methodist University in
this city, a chair for journalism; for,
says the good Bishop, "journalism is a
profession as honorable as that of law,
medicine and theology.''

Slow Procrcss or tho Monster Spool
The great spool of cable for the
Seventh-street branch of the Washing
ton and Georgetown Street Hallway Is
proceeding 'slowly "on its winding
way" down Four-and-a-half street
southwest towards Its destination on
the river front.
Tho railroad tracks at the intersec
tion of Virginia avenue were crossed
without accident, but owing to delays
and other causes the spool will hardly
reach the power house until some time
Great crowds still line the sidewalks
watching the tedious process of moving
tho cable. A force of painters have
beeu put to work on tho power house,
and It is predicted thnt it will be ready
for occupauey in less than three weeks.
Several of the now cable cars for the
Seventh street line, drawn by horses,
were run over tho road this afternoon.
They aro commodious and qullo pretty,
being painted a combination of orange
nnd "lemon color. Tho new cars at
tracted general attention nlong the
thoroughfare over which they were run.

The "nrcr r rmnotiB DnAperndii n(
There Is no part of the Htato moro
prolific in "mountain (error" stories
than tho region that lies under tho
sdindow of Shasta, says tho Ortrhml
Sheet-Iron Jack, years ngo, became
known as (he most expert horso thief
In this region. On one occasion he
threw his pursuers off the track, as
Mimid EOino npt tllsmilso, met tho
Sheriff's posso, delighted them with
songs anil stories, stayed with them at
a littlo village on tho Sacramento, In
the only hotel tho place afforded, nnd,
Jitds being tenrec, slept with the Sheriff,
During tho night ho arose, slipped out
of the room and drove n knife Into tho
door-post, so ns to hold the Sheriff lm
pilMiiied In caso ho nwoko. A few
minutes later ho was mounted on tho
best horso hi the Shcrllfa party, and
was leading two other.3. Tho rest ho
drove to tho river nnd into tho willows"
and swampy bottoms.
Tho following Incident was told by
one of tho principal actors. It hap
pened ono August Bomo twcnty-llvo
years ngo: A young German had spent
most of his money for a lino horse nnd
riding outfit, and started from Sacra
mento to rldo to Portland, Ore Ho was
in Northern Sfinsta when his horso
began to go lame, and In nn hour could
hardly put ono foot boforo another. The
German was young, excessively Ignorant
about horsetlesh, and hnd a not unwar
ranted impression that most pcoplo
ninnnged sooner or later to swindle him.
So when his hoiso went Initio bo began
to feel that the honest old farmer of
whom tho purchase was made had sold
him a worthless animal. Ho had in
vested tJloO In tho creature, and now,
perhaps, It was not wortli 520.
About this tlino a benovolcnt old
mountaineer came along and the Ger
man appealed to him about "dot horse."
Tho old mountaineer was ono of tho
shrewdest of horso traders, and after a
long examination ho pronounced lt a
severe enso of founder.
"JS'o good, that norse, for a year.
Turn him out to pasture. And he
won't be the samo horse ag'In, oven
"What shall I do?" cried the tender
foot. After n long talk the trader offered
the German $30 for tho horse, saying
that with carohe could make him worth
50, but that a foundered horso was
practically woithless, except for a little
Tho ignorant German consented, took
the money, handed over tho horse, took
his saddle and started to walk to the
nearest stage station. Tho sharper
waited until his dupe was out of sight.
Then bo took a pair of blacksmith's
pincers fiom his saddle-bags, and in
live minutes hnd wrenched off all four'
of the now steel shoes from tho Inrso's
hoofs. In half an hour the animal be
gan to walk easily.
"Thar, I thought so," he muttered.
"T!nlf Clin.l l.ir on...n ,.nll,, fl (
blacksmith, that's all. Lord. I wish I
could find such a durn fool every day."
Tlio German walked along for several
houis, more and more suspicious about
bis lato friend, and slowly discovering
thnt even a lame horse was better than
no horso at all. Suddenly a man rode
out of tho bushes and demanded where
in the devil was his horse.
Ho told his story brlclly and mourn
fully, moro than over certain that It had
two sides. Tho man listened attentively,
broko into fits of laughter, silting side
wise on his great brown horse and pul
ling at his black moustache Ho began
to nsk questions. When was tho horse
shod last, and where? Then ho asked
more questions about tho aged and be
nevolent stranger. Finally he said:
"You've bccn.swludlcd. This Is my
beat, so I suppose I must help you out.
You walk up tho creek till you cnm6
to a camp. There's biend and titled
beef. Then you lie down and go to
Some lime within the next &ix hours
Sheet Iron Jack overhauled tho now
owner of the horse and leveled a pistol
at his head.
"You made a mistake a little while
ngo, Phillips." (For he knew tho old
mountaineer very well.) "You ob
tained my German friond's horso on
false pretenses you pseudologizcd
about it. Now climb down and ciiinb
on your own plug."
Phillips looked at the pistol, then at
the horse, then nt his own pistol.
"Don't bo a fool, old man."
"Hut I oughtcr have back that $30 I
paid that internal Dutchman."
"My honest friend, that goes for my
Phillips lost his temper and swore
roundly, but It was a foolish proceed
ing, for Jack replied calmly:
''After all, lawyers tako all there is
to bo had, turn out your pockets, you
old horso doctor!" Arid he took $000
from tho trembling and conquered
sharper, surveyed him a minute, tossed
him back half of lt and rodo back.
The young German was roused after
a while by Jack's return. "Hero's
your horse nnd outfit," ho slid. "I've
put some dried meat in your saddle-bag
and hum's a pistol. If1 another black
smith 'lames your horse null on him.

Devil's Lake, In Calhoun County,
Ala,, Is ono of tho most remarkable
natural cuilosltlcs to bo found In
America. Tho lnko la oval-in shape,
and covers about four acres of ground.
No vegetation of any kind grows on its
bunks, and nolhlirflivcs In lis water.
Evtn makes nnd terrapins sliun tho
wnlers of Devil's Lake, nnd fish plneed
In It dlo in a fow hours. Tho water Is
clear limestone, with a peculiar tatfu,
which makes lt unpalatnblo to man or
benst. IIorcs nnd cows will not drink
lt, no mailer how thirsty they may bo.
Deep down below the surface of iho
lake may bo seen whatnppcsus lo be tho
chnircd nnd blackened trunks of largo
tiees. They slnnd upright in tho water,
but hnvo neither root nor branch nnd
never llse to the surface or sink to tho
bottom. The lake has no outlet, ami
tho volume of water In it is tho same
all the tlmo. A strange fatality attaches
to this lake, Once it was the favorite
lesort of tho boys of tho neighborhood
for bathing -nnd swimming, but now
they never go near it. Fifteen boys
havo been drowned In its waters In
twice as ninny years. A few of tho
bodies havo uccn recovered, but those
who were drowned any distance from
tho banks sank to tho bottom nnd were
never brought to the surface.
The depth of the lnko has never been
ascertained. Soundings to the depth of
700 feet found no bottom, nnd the pco
plo in the vicinity say the lake has
none. Tho Indian legend of tho origin
of tho lnko is that before tho white man
enmo to this country two tribes beenmo
Involved In a war, aud after a number
of bloody battlss tho smaller trlbo was
almost exterminated. Then the old
men and chiefs of the weak trlbo sued
for peace and arranged for a council.
While the pipe was being passed around
a signal was given and the chiefs
of tho strong trlbo suddenly sprang up
with drawn tomahawks and murdered
every one of tho chiefs of the smaller
Then the war was renewed and car
ried on until tho weak tribe was exllr
mlnatcd, A few moons after the massa
cre of tho chiefs a tiro broko out In
tho pine forest whero the massacro oc
curred. The fire burned on this spot
for eight moons nnd the ground sank
down out of sicht; tho fire disappeared,
and in its stcad"appearcd tho lake. Tho
Indians gnvo tbo lake a name which
means "lake of death."
