Great Britain. Shouldn't Consent.

that It In Impossible that Great Britain
should consent to a modlllcatlon of the

tho Russian fleet; but if al the conclusion
of the war Russia Is willing, It is probable
that Great Britain would consent to a
modification of the treaty, which would

NEW YORK, Dec. -J. To build u,p a
market in New York for goata' milk at
51 a gallon is one of the earthly ambi
tiony of William J, Cohlll, the boy goat
breeder of Hancock, Md who has
brought a group of his prize-winning
Angoras on from St. Louis to the Poul
try and Cat show, which opened in Her
ald Square Exhibition hall, Broadway
and Thirty-fourth street, last week. Co
hill Is a pleasant-faced young fellow of
sixteen. He has been raising Angora
goats for the last four yeary, and speaks
of It as an agreeable, easy occupation,
admirably adapted to women or to per
sons with whom an indoor, sedentary
life does not agree.
"We started In four years ago with
forty head of Angora goats," he said,
"because my father had some large
tracts of waste land, covered with brush,
which he wanted cleared and Angoras
are unapproachable at clearing land.
Sheep, you know, have to have grass to
thrive. Angoras will thrive on brush.
While they are picking up their living
they are killing the brush. They keep
it nibbled down so closa that it cannot
live. In two years a flock will kill the
undergrowth on any land they range on.
At the end of that time it is fit to be
planted down in apples, that being the
favorite crop in the western part of the
State, In the foothills of the Aileghenles.
where we live. Now we have 250 head
of goats and 600 acres of apple or
chard?. My father furnishes the land.

Will Shuffle-for Himself.
He scratched the horny forehead of
a wise old buck, who came up to the
side of his pen and peered through the
wire netting, as If begglhg with his
crafty yellow eyes for a caress.
At least In that gentler Maryland
country the Angora can be relied on to
shuffle for himself. His are long days,
spent In the open, slowly sauntering
from bush to bush, cropping indolently
here, browsing negligently there. At
night he will return to his shed. To
morrow he can be relied upon to repeat
his little programme. Only In winter is
it imperative that he be fed and shel
tered. Then two pounds of hay and a
little corn compose his modest rations.
It Is the dump, rather than the cold,
that he needs protection from.
"Angoras are sheared once a year, in
the spring." continued the young goat
breeder, after he had returned from
quieting a tiny kid that was crying for
its mother. "The average goat gives
from four to six pounds of mohair, and
the mohair brings from 35 to 40 cents
a pound. We calculate that the mo
hair pays for the goat's keeping through
the winter, and the kid and the brush
clearing are pure profit. If a goat could
be paid In United States currency for
his brush clearing, he would receive 52
a year. I do not do tho shearing my
self; only once I did It, so as to learn
Besides his knack at brush clearing
and his pelt, the Angora is valuable to
his owner on yet another account his
ilesh. Young Cohlll confidently as
serts that Angora meaC is superior to
mutton, being jucler, with a better
flavor. If killed young.
Good Kind of "Mutton."
"Only," he added, "you mustn't call It
goat. Sell it for mutton and people will
buy it und then come back for more of
"that same mutton.' But call It goat,
and no one will look nt it."
When the Angora reaches the age of
five months, he is fitted out with an
earring. The earring Is a little flat tin
band, which is passed through a hole
pierced In the ear with a sort of awl
or punch; then the ends clamped to
gether, so that It will not work off, On
the earring Is stamped the wearer's

EI-TEMY OF WHALES.
Strango Creature Said to EsJst in
While operating a fishery In Admir
alty island, Alasku, last summer, my
attention and the attention of the fish
ing crew was almost dally attracted to
n large marine, creature that would ap
pear In the main channel of Seymour
canal and our Immediate vicinity.
There are large numbers of whales of
tho species rorqual there, and the mon
ster seemed to be their natural enemy.
The whales generally travel in schools
and while at the suface to blow one
would be singled out and attacked by
tho fish, and a battle was soon In or
der. It is the nature of the rorqual to
make three blows at Intervals of from
two to three minutes each, and then
sound deep and stay beneath the sur
face for thirty or forty minutes. As
a whale would come to the surface,
there would appear, always at the
whale's right side and Just about where
his head would connect with the body,
a great, long tail or fin, "judged by
five fishermen and a number of In
dians, after seeing It about fifteen times
at various distances," to be about
j .""enty-four feet long, two and one
half foot wide at the end, and tapering
down to the water, where it seemejl
to be about eighteen Inches in diame
ter, looking kv much like the blade
of the fan of an old-fashioned Dutch
The great club waStyused on the back
Df the unfortunate wljale in such a
manner that it was a wonder to me
that every whale attacked . ns not in
stantly killed. Its operator tt'pd to
have perfect control of its movemch"1
and would bend it back till the end
would touch the . water, forming a
horseshoe loop, then with a sweep it
would be straightened and brought
over and down on the back of the whale
with a whack that could be heard for
several miles. If the whale was fortu
nate enough to submerge Itself before
the blows came; the spray would fly for
a distance of a hundred feet from the
effect of the stroke, making a report
as loud as a yacht's signal gun.
What sacmed most remarkable to me
was that, no matter which way the at
tacked whale went, or how fast (the
. usual speed is about, fourteen knots),
that great club would follow right along
by Its side and deliver those tremendous
blows at Intervals of about four or five
seconds. It would always get in from
three to five blows at each of the three
times the whale would come to the sur
face to blow. The whale would generally
rid Itself of the enemy when It took its
deep sound, especially if the water was
forty fathoms or more deep. During
the day the attack was always off
shore, but at night the whales would be
attacked In the bay and within 400
yards of the fishery.
I do not know of any whales being
killed, but there were several that had
great holes and sores on their backs.
Questioning the Indians about It, I was
told that there was only one, that it
once attacked an Indian canoe, nnd
with one stroke of the great club
.smashed the canoe Into splinters, killing
and drowning severnl of Its occupants.

How She Managed Hubby.
"Tom Gray Is a very clever man," re
marked one of his friends. "He has
managed to effect by diplomacy what
most of us have tried and generally
failed to bring about by self-assertion,
1. e., a satisfactory freedom 6 marital
action while remaining on perfectly af
fectionate terms with his wife.
"The first year of his marriage he and
his Maude were a' typical pair of turtle
doves, and were never happy out of each
other's sight. Then the man, as is gen
erally the case, without loving his dear
Maud any the less, began to be Inter
ested in outside things. She noticed this
change, and, womanlike, resented It.
They had one row after the other.
Then Tom considered the situation and
developed Machlavellic talents. He did
not relax his devotion to his Maud, an
the contrary, he became more and more
of an ardent lover. He gave her no
peace. He would come up for afternoon
tea when she would be in the midst of
a delightful gossip with her especial in
timates and sit and look at her fatuous
ly, so that her friends would one by one
make an excuse for a short stay.
"He was so affectionate that It be
came rather tiresome and one day Maud
requested quite sharply that he
'wouldn't paw so much.' In the way of
companionship it Is undeniable that each
sex prefers its own, and Maud began to
long for the comfortable chat about sub
jects dear to her soul with other wo
men, but Tom gave her no chance.
Finally she talked to him seriously
about the duties they both owed to so
ciety. Tom took it in very good part,
He recognized the necessity of some
times speaking to other women and of
"keeping up' his men friends and he
promised to take an interest In other
"I should call them now a model cou
ple. They are fondof each other, but
they are also fond of their friends. She
attends her dinners and bridge parties
and he goes unrestrictedly to his club,

Maud thinks it is her clever manage
ment that hns brought this eminently
satisfactory state of affairs about."

Obeyed His Chief's Orders.
A smart young officer belonging to a
cavalry corps in India was sent on sick
leave to a convalescent station of Simla
and, while recovering his health among
the hills there was robbed of his heart
and In return captivated the charming
thief. The young fellow proposed and
was accepted and with all possible dis
patch the wedding day was fixed But
the Colonel of the expectant bride
groom's regiment was strongly opposed
to the Lieutenant marrying and tele
graphed an unwelcome "Join at once" to
the amorous sub.
The chagrined soldier handed the
peremptory message to his fair one. She
glanced at It and then, with a becoming
blush of sweet simplicity remarked:
"I am more than glad, dear, that your
Colonel so approves of your choice, but
what a hurry he is in for the wedding.
I don't think I can be ready quite so
soon, but I'll try. for, of course, the
Colonel must be aboyed."
"But you don't seem to understand the
telegram, sweetheart," said the Lieute
nant. "It upsets every plan wo havc
made. You see, he says, 'Join at once.' "
"Certainly he does, dear.'Lreplled the
lady, looking up with an arch smile,
"but it is you who don't seem to under
stand it. When the Colonel says. 'Join
at once,' what does he mean but get
married immediately? What else, In
deed, can he possibly mean?"
"What else, indeed, darling?" delight
edly exclaimed the ardent lover, rejoic

ceived with the utmost alacrity. So forty-eight
hours had scarcely passed be

How to Manage Most Fascinating of
Marriage license clerks should pre
pare for the rush, for the chief mar
riage handicap has been removed- As
soon us sufilcient time has elapsed for
the study of a book Just published in
London called "Wives and How to
Manage Them," they may expect a
tidal wave of. young men with the li
cense fee and the courage of their con
victions. The author hides his fame under the
name of "One Who Knows," but that
will not prevent him receiving a monu
ment from the male portion of the
English speaking race after he has
been lynched by their better halves.
He starts off by drawing attention to
the fact that "there are numerous
handbooks published which deal with
the management of the horse, the dog,
the canary, and other domestic ani
mals, and yet there, is no good and
useful text-book upon the 'Choice nnd
Management of the Wife,' who is by
far the most important, m6st expen
sive, and most universal of the domes
The course of management must be
gin with the honeymoon, and the great
thing the husband has to beware Is al
lowing his wife to think for herself.
If you speak a foreign language and
she does not, spend your honeymoon
in that country, then you must do the
thinking for both. "If you do not your
wife may begin to think for you. To
allow this is the most fatal error you
can possibly commit, It is a habit you
may find it,cilfricult to break her of af
terward. Let her talk that does no
manner of harm and comes to most wo
men much more easily than thinking
but, if possible, prevent her from
thinking at all; In a wife It Is a most
ptmlclous habit, only one. degree- less
temple than that of reasoning, which
Is a d.Tdly sin. If once your wife be
gins to reason about things in general,
and contral ts the habit, before long
she is sure tv reason about you. Now
you know quite .;ell that you will not
boar reasoning abuf."
One of the few thugs for which a
man may bo naturally tli.mkful 13 wo
man's changeability. "Son- unthink
ing male creatures have repro.hed wo
men for this changeability: they" -do not
realize that no sane man would care to
eat boiled mutton at every meal, yt'3-r
in and year out."
He strongly advises moderation in the
management of a wife by means of vio
lence, and cites a good reason from the
Police court. "The magistrate asked
the wife: 'And you mean to say that
that miserable wreck of a man gave
you a black eye?' 'Lor, sir,' she
answered, 'he wasn't a miserable wreck
afore he struck me. " The argument Is
One thing you must do In managing
a .wife is to insist on her doing as you
say, and then shutting your eyes, so
