Tho round bolster is covered with India silk to

delightfully old-fashioned air to tho handsome
THE POTOMAC FISHERIES.
"What a ITlsli Commission Agent Says About
An agent of tho United States Fish Commis
sion said yesterday: "The work of tho Commis
sion proceeding satisfactorily. In fact, the
working of tho office has been so system'atized
that everything goes on like clock-work. By
tho way, that investigation of tho Fish Commis
sion as to misuse of Government funds did not
pan out very well. It was purely tho result of
personal animosity toward Col. Macdonald.
But you want to know something about the
Potomac fisheries. Well, tho employGs are
down now at tho river station near Fort Wash
ington engaged in stripping tho roe and melt
from the fish. But the shad have not begun to run
up in any considerable numbers yet. The pre
vailing winds and the na6ty weather havo kept
them back. Wo don't attempt to propagate
tho herring. Save on a few exceptional years,
herring in sufficient quantities havo not failed
to put in an appearance. Any reasonable pur
chaser ought to be satisfied with paying $2.50,
or less even, (as was tho case last year,) for a
thousand fat herring enough when salted
down to last a good-sized family a year. Tho
Fish Commission will put Into tho Potomac
at least twenty millions of shad fry, and more
if tho run should not be up to tho annual stand
ard. You know, perhaps, that wo aro greatly
aided by the fishermen down tho river, whom
wo have taught to strip the roe-shad, and wo
pay them so much per gallon for the product
when brought to tho station.
"It is unlikely that in tho near future tho
Potomac will not havo tho spring run of shad
and herring, as was the case in tho Hudson
River, owing to piratical fishing, until tho Fish
Commission replanted tho upper waters with
fry. But tho manner in which seining and net
ting in tho Potomac has been carried on of lato
years ought to bo put a stop to at once. From
tne time wnon, at tuo beginning or tne annual
run, the fish enter tho capes of the Chesapeake
they have been harried night and day by what
may bo called tho pot-hunters with seines, gill
nets, trap-nets, and pound-nets. And this is
carried 'on right heroin tho District up to tho
Little Falls, just below which aro tho spawning
grounds. It Is true that thero Is a close time
after May 30, but then the run is virtually over.
Thero is a law against gill-netting, pound-net-tlng,
and so on, but it Is practically inoperative.
"At tho last session of Congress a bill was
presented that if passed would havo been ef
fective against tho poachers, but objection was
made that its passage would havo been an in
f ringment by Congress of the riparian rights of
tho State of Virginia, and so tho bill went over.
I don't know whether I am corrector not, but
I believe that It has boon decided In tho courts
that the jurisdiction of tho District Commis
sioners extends to high-water mark on tho Vir
ginia shore. The bill Is a righteous and neces
sary one, and will bo pressed and passed at tho
next session. Meantime there will bo a suffi
cient supply of fish until that time arrives."
A Good Word for Candy.
Sweets aro just as healthy in their place as
roast beef. Puro candles promoto digestion.
It is all a mistako that they injuro tho teeth; it
is not possible for them to do so. Itwould bo a
singular thing if sweets were injurious to
health, because they aro In everything wo eat
In tho way of fruits, vegetables, and tho grain
out of which wo make our bread. Any injury
resulting from tho use of sugar, candy, or pre
serves is caused by their being used too fre
quently or In too large quantities; but every
thing wo eat and drink is liable to tho samo
objection. If takeu before meals or directly
after both sweets and nuts aro promoters of
digestion; tho observation and tho Instincts of
the civilized world on this point havo led to the
use of both at the end of meals. If sweets are
taken only at meal time, not between and not
In excess, they will not only agree with the
healthy stomach, but tenu to make a person
fat as much as butter, for It Is tho carbon In
each which the system uses.
Tho use of good wine iu health, and aho in
tho therapeutic treatment of disease, is to-day
acknowledged by physicians as ono of tho most
indispensable aids in tho pharmacopoeia. It
may be said without fear of contradiction that
good pure wine as un alterative medicine is
unequaled in efficacy for raising the action of
tho blood, restoring strength, and reviving the
Bad wine, on the contrary, is ono of the most
destructive enemies to health.
The user cannot bo too careful that ho does
not get an inferior article. For goneral excel
lence the To-Kalon wines havo an unrivaled
reputatln;thejrtir Is absolutely guaranteed.
