In the warm waters of tire Indian
Ocean a strange marine is found that
has given rise to many curious rales
among the natives of the coast there
about. They tell of a wonderful sail
often seen in the calm seasons preced
ing the terrible hurricanes that course
over those waters. Not a breath
then disturbs the water, the sea rises
and falls like a vast sheet of glas?;
suddenly the sail appears, glistening
with rich purple and golden hues and
seemingly driven along by a mighty
wind. On it comes, quivering and
sparkling as if bedecked with gem&,
but only to disappear as if by magic.
Many travelers had heard with unbe
lief the strange tale; but one day the
phantom craft actually appeared to
the crew of an Indian steamer, and
as it passed by under the stern of tho
vessel, the queer "sail" was seen to
belong to a gigantic sword-fish, now
known as the sailor-fish. Tho sail
was really an enormously developed
dorsal fin that was over ten feet high,
and was richly colored with blue and
iridescent tints; and as the fish swam
along on or near the surface of. the
water, this great fin naturally waved
touaud fro, so that from a distance it
csvlil easily be mbtahen Tor a curi
Some of these sword-fish attain a,
length of over twenty feet and have
large, crescent shaped tan's, and long.
swordlike c snouts, capable of doing
In the Mediterranean Sea, a sword
fish is found that also has a high fin,
but it does not equal the great sword
fish of the Indian Ocean. C. F.

show that "the last graduating class
of Amherst college during its college
course about 200,000. The average
yearly expenditure per man $682.
The average yearly expenditure per
man freshman year was $625; sopho

greatest total expenditure of any one
member of the class was $3,650; for

POKING FUN AT WICHITA.
The story about Jay Gould intend-
ing to remove nis itew iont oniee io
Wichita and occupy part of Marsh
Murdock's private office is said to bo
without serious foundation.
Jay Gould said in Kansas City that
it was not to the interest of his road
in the west to buiKl up local towns
but that he proposed to concentrate
his railroad management as much as
possible in Kansas Citv. It is now in
order for the WTichita Eagle to spread
its broad wings and scream, it is
possible that Marsh Murdock ha
been played upon by the artful and
craftv Jay. Perish the thought!
The decision of Jay Gould to re
move Lis railroad headquarters from
St. Louis to Kansas City and build up
the latter place causes the Wichita
afetolook wild. With great re
uctance that paper is giving to its
readers some confidential communi
cations made to Mr. Murdock by Mr.
Gould. As a confidential communi
cator Mr. Goald has few rivals and
no superiors. That beautiful
story about George Gould and wife
going to live at Wichita is a dai)'?;
