James Gomers, while waiting for

A swordfish caused the death of

miles out at sea. Sylvia was one of
the crew on the fishing sloop Klon
dike, from t Gloucester. A 2,000
pound swordfish had been har
pooned, and Sylvia entered a dory

fish, which was only about two
lengths away from the sloop. In
its flurry the fish made a break for
the dory and broke its sword by
running it through the planking.
The shock when the.fish struck the
dory threw Sylvia overboard, and

boots he was unable to swim and
sank before assistance could reach

of a Bolivar (N. Y.) merchant, lost

A More Civilized Did.
There has been an enormous in
crense in the demnnd for fruits and
tints, for fish and eggs, for milk
and butter nnd cheese, for poultry,
and for proprietary cereal foods,
l'ifty years ago the only cereal food
known, besides the products of
wheat and rye, flour nnd cnrnmcal,
was o.itmcnl, nnd that was imported
nnd was rare and costly. Now no
breakfast table is without some form
of mush or grits.
A thorough investigation of the
subject shows that Americans cat
36 per cent less meat per capita
than fifty years ago. But we eat
more wheat, poultry, eggs nnd
cheese. In 1880 our consumption
of eggs was 920 dozen for each 100
persons. Now it is 1,700 dozen tor
each 100. We cat seventeen dozen
apiece, and the hen has assumed an
important place in economics. In
1850 wc consumed 430 bushels of
wheat for each 100 persons. Now
the consumption is 623 bushels for
the same number. Corn nnd pota
toes show a similar increase, while
in forty years the consumption of
oats ns human food has increased
One of the most notable changes
of diet is that in favor of fruits.
They are used the year round.
They nre fine cither fresh from the
trees or cooked, and nre kept dried,
evaporated, canned or preserved the
year round. There is no more
wholesome or palatable dish for the
supper table than a properly select
ed and prepared dish of stewed pea
ches or apples. The banana has
gained continually for the last twen
ty years. Our bananas now cost
us $8,000,000 a year.

Until recently it was almost uni
versally believed that petroleum,
like coal, was derived from fossil
vegetation or possibly from animals
or fishes of some long-past age.
Now it is asserted by many scien
tific men that it may not be of any
organic origin, but may be due to
subterranean chemical action.
