A Brief Account of tbo Glasgow Cathe
dr&l, That Tine Old Gothic Structure
in One of tuo Largest aad Most Im
portant OItic of Scotland.
Glasgow, tho groat industrial metropolis
of Scotland, is, after London, one of the
iargest and most important cities of the
kingdom. It had its first beginning in the
cathedral, situated on rising ground north
cut of the city. Hera it is believed that
St. Mudro founded a bishopric in tho year
560, but for nearly 600 years afterward the
history of the placo is a blank.
In the Twelfth century, however, and in
the reign of David, king of Scotland, the
foundation of the present cathedral was
laid by Bishop Jocclin. It is a fine old
Gothic structure, boaring marks in its
architecture of various dates of erection.
Its length is 319 feet, while tho tower and
spire attain a height of 225 feet. Tho choir
ef the cathedral is still u&ed as a placo of
worship, while its new crypt, fitted with
htained glass windows, is one of tho most
remarkable in Europe. All the windows
of the nave, choir and chapels aro from the
royal manufactory at Munich.
Katy san a merry song,
Eaty did! ICaty did!
Through the summer evenings long,
When tbo sun had left the west,
Ami the birds had gone to rest.
Then she Bang her vary best,
Katydid, did, did!
Katy brought xib tidings true.
In the twilight and tho dew.
For she baid tbo frost bo still
Would be creeping o'er tho Ji ilL
And the nights would grow more chill.
Katydid, did, did!
Soon, she said, he would be here,
Turning meadows crisp and sere,
Then, she said, the chestnut's burr
Would bo opened with a stir,
And slio gave her wings a whir!
Katy did, did, did!
So she gave us warning fair,
ICaty did! ICaty did!
That wo might for hJni prepare.
"Fill the store house and the bin.
Gather all tho apples In."
Thus our praises she did win,
Katy did, did, did!
Tho Game of Information.
Tho newest gumo for indoor recreation
takes the form of an information party,
and according to rules given in Golden
Days is played as follows: Beginby giving
to each boy a card and to tho girls small
pieces of paper, which should be nuruoured
from one up to tho number of girls in tho
game. The boys then write a number on
their cards, and those who discover tho
same number on their cards and paper aro
partners for tho game.
Each couplo must think of a question,
sensible or ridiculous, historical or in re
gard to tho weather, to bo written on tho
cards, after which tho cards are to be
gathered together, and the leader reads
each in turn, giving a few moments for
tho partners to consider tho subject and
write the answer, which should bo read
aloud in turn. This is where tho fun
of the game begins, as many of tho answers
are exceedingly queer.
Those having a correct answer mark
their card 10, u wrong answer 0, and if tho
answer is anywhore near right it is count
id 5. When all are added prizes may bo
distributed, as in progressive gamos, for
the best and the poorest record. This is an
amusing game because of the misinforma
tion it elicits. A grmt many people will
lo surprised at their own ignorance in re
gard to such questions as to tho number of
states and territories, the location of cities
in Europe, tho names of well known rulers,
and so forth.
Tho Reason "Why.

Said Hetty (agpd jt four),
"A little girl fell off her chair.

LOBSTER AND COD CULTURE.
New Departure In th rropagatlou of
It is very probable thr.t unless we have
resort to artificial culture to replenish
our lobster fisheries there will be a
marked decline in Nova Scotia's output
during the nest few years. Already
Newfoundland is aheaJ of us in this
branch of fish culture, for under the
management of Adolpa Nielsen, a Nor
wegian expert, "the undent colony" has
taken n new departure in the propaga
tion of cod and lobsters. In a recent
article Rev. Moses ILrrvey writes that
the fish hatchory on the shore of Trinity
bay is tho largest in he world for the
propagation of codfish and lobsters, and
capable of hatching 800,000,000 of cod
and 200,000,000 lobsters in a single sea
son. A single mother lobster can stow away
no less than 20.000 eggs, nnd she carries
these about with her until they are ri
pened and hatched. The lobster trapper
takes these mother fish and carries them
to the factory, where they &re thrown
into boiling water, and of course the eggs
are destroyed. The quantity of lobster
ova that perish in this way is beyond
all calculation, and is one great cause of
Mr. Harvey thus describes Mr. Niel
sen's ingenious methods: He gets the fe
male lobster at the. factories before they
are boiled, and with a sort of spoon con
structed for tho purpose he strips the
eggs from the fibrils aad returns the Iob
ier uninjured. He takes the ezes.

of the cod, and places them in the incu

After a time, longer or shorter ac
cording to tho degree of ripeness they
have reached before being removed from
the mother, these ova are hatched. With
some of them only two days are required;
in tho case of others less advanced a
month or even two months may be
needed to hatch them. Cnlike the cod
the young lobster must be fed, for it has
no yolk sac to feed on when it breaks
from the shell. Mussels chopped fine,
with occasionally a few yolks of eggs,
furnish food on which they grow rapid
ly, nnd in five or sis div3 they have gone
through their fint shelling and are fit to
be Eet free in the water to pick up their
own living. '
Mr. Nielsen has invented floating in
cubators to be placed in the water near
the lobster factories which are scattered
ground the ehores. lu thesa incubators
the eggs are placed and attended to by
men properly instructed. He has 432 of
these floating incubators distributed this
year at thirteen different stations
thirty-sis at each. They are reported to

Their Voaey Sometimes Earned.
Of the many curious classes of charities
in t.V, vicinity of this city, the ferryboat
fakirs come very near being tho most in
teresting. To the passengers and commu
ters on tho numerous lines of ferries at
both sides of the city they have been a
source of amusement for many years.
Probably the most interesting and wel
come character on thboats is an old negro.
He begins operations with the rush of
traffic at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
He takes a seat ia the rear of the men's
tahin, and just after the boot starts he
walks into tbo p3ss..ray between thi
two cahin3 and besnns to whistle, very
softly at first, "The Mocking Bird." With
out a single breaS: be finishes the air, n
marvel of sweetnes and simplicity. Then
he begins it agaiu. This time a little louder
and with variations.
Old men put down their papers and lis
ten intently; the conversation becomes
subdued and then ceases; the boys leavo
their beats and stand at the entrance to the
passageway, but the old darky never stops,
and all the time his wonderful exertion is
becoming more and more melodious.
Finally he launches ofT into a scries of
sweet toned notes, and n look ot mingled
interest and admiration ."tents over the
faces of all within hearing distance. Then
he drops back into the air again and the
tune is finished very softly.
APPEALS TO WOMEN.
Tho old negro then walks to the end
of tho cabin and, holding his hat out, bows
low and passes around the seats, all tho
time whistling some lively littlo tune, in
terspersed with melodious variations. Tho
nickels, dimes aud pennies rattle an accom
paniment to his music aud his nightly col
lections vary from $$ to $12. On Sunday
nights he can be scon on tho boats runniug
from Cortlandt street, and then he ."fleets
the ladies' side of the boat. Standing under
one of tho chandeliers, with his hat in his
hand, he whistles "Nearer, My God, to
Thee," and repeats it with variations. All
of his selections on Sunday nights are pop
ular hymns, and for his sweet and soulful
rendition of them he is well repaid.
Lately the attention of tho passengers
has been attracted by a deformed boy, who
works upon the different lines from onrly
morning until late at night. Ills entire
leftside is paralyzed, shortening his leg
and drawing up his arm. The side of hi
face is also affected. His clothing is poor
When tha boat Is well out iu tho river
tho boy enters the forward door of tho
lady's cabin and stands for n moment at
the threshold, apparently uncertain what
to do. Then he takes from nn inside pocket
of his coat two lead pencils, sharpened nnd
provided with rubbers. Holding thwe in
I his perfect hand he limps slowly n round in
front of the seats, pausing a moment ha
fore each passenger, mutely asking thorn
His face i3 n picture of despair, and many a
dime and nickel are dropped into his hand.
Nine out of every ten passengers refius a
pencil after they lyive given him alms, but
if one is taken he continues his Journey
holding the remaining one out for Mile.
If that too happens to be taken the hub
fellow dives down and brings out two
more from his insido pocket. The llttl
scheme succeeds admirably, and ho dom
not dispose of moro than four or flvo pan-
cils a dny. The boy is a professional begioir
and under tho eyes and training of his
Among tho most interesting characters
aro two brothers between tho agos of li
and 17 voars. As soon as tho boat is wall
i on its trip they appear at one end of the
cabin and one of them, taking oQ bis wit,
"Gentlemen, if you have not got any ob
jections we would like to entertain you for
a few moments. Although wo make our
living this way, wo only ask for what you
think we aro worth."
Both bow, nnd with n quick movement
the youuger lad puts his foot in his broth
er's hand and is thrown high into tho nir.
Turning a hack somersault ho land on his
feet on the floor. Picking himself quickly
up he mounts on his brother' shoulders
and again turns backward to the floor.
Three or four moro combination feats of
this nnturo aro accomplished, whan tho
two boys atop for a moment's rest and thon
go at it again. They turn forward uml
backward somorsaulu, leap to ono anoth
er's shoulders, and finally walk around tho
cabin on their hands.
During trips where tho cabin is filled
they arc roundly applauded for their work,
and both live nicelr from the collection
they make. They havo at difTaront timwi
filled small engagements, but they sny
there is more money m the ferry boats for
them, and beaides tbey are their own mut
ters. Another of the dewrvisg characters Is an
Irish boy, vrbo generally makw his appear
ance in tho cabin with to following re
marks: "LadioA and gostlemen, if it will not
both or you too much I'd like to give yon n
little exhibition of dandst. I will first
dance you an Irish reel and jig, noit n
doe, next a ebufB and the hut a wing

The passengers on a Third avenue street
car recently wero suddenly shaken nearly
off their seats by the full fctop of tho car.
Tho driver iras teen to gesticulate wildly
as he put all his muscle into the brake.
The conductor ran to tho front platform.
The horses were seen to rear up on their
hind legs and shy oil the track. The pas
sengers were in a state of panic and made
frantic efforts to crowd through the doors.
Just ahead of tho horses and within twe
feet of their noses a long black wire dsa
gled across the tracks, whiting to aud fro.
"Don't go near itf yelled the conductor,
and the crowd foil back. Thea the driTer
and a policeman held & council of war,
