Poison fish are found In largo num
bers and In many places, but more es
pecially In the tropics. They are qulto
common In the Brazilian nnd West
Indian wnters, and also In tho east
Indian and Australian waters. Three
kinds of llsh belonging to the mackerel
family aro poisonous. One In called
the Jure!, and is found in the West
Indies in largo numbers. It can be dis
tinguished from tho common mackerel
w hlch also abounds In the same waters,
by certain peculiarities of marks. Thus,
tho Jurel has not the black spot on the
gill covers; It has two scales on the
neck, while tho harmless kind has a
black snot and no scales on the neck.
The poisonous kind grow large, nnd
often weigh as much as 20 pounds; but
the others seldom run over two pounds.
Mackerel weighing over two pounds
are not allowed to be sold In the Ha
The crlcora Is another kind of poison
ous mackerel. It Is also found In the
West Indies; but the natives of those
Islands do not regard It as dangerous.
Tho meat of the chlcora Is not fit or
safe to eat at certain times of the
year, especially during tho spawning
season. Then It becomes highly poi
sonous, and the people of the Guada
loupe sometimes use pieces of the fish
which have been caught to poison rats.
The bonlto Is a kind of mackerel that Is
most dangerous at certain times of the
year. Usually It Is a very pleasant
and palatable bit of food, but every
once In a whllo people arc taken vtth
colic after eating the bonlto. So It Is
best to leave it alone. Two kinds of
herring aro known to be poisonous. The
meletta, or tropical herring, Is found
all along tho Atlantic coast as far
north as New York. Within recent
years there have been several cases In
which people have died after eating
The spawning season seems to be the
time when the herring and other tropi
cal fish should be let severely alone.
Tho part which Is considered most
dangerous Is the roe. The meletta,
which Is found In East Indian and
Australian waters, Is always poison
ous, and Is the most dangerous, be
cause It Is not easily distinguished
from another kind of herring which Is
comparatively harmless. The poison
ous kind has a black spot on the dor
sal fin, while the other has not these
marks. The poisonous meletta resem
bles a herring, being 5 or C Inches long,
with silvery scales and a bluish-green
back. Some fish are poisonous at cer
tain seasons of the year, and at other
times wholesome. And finally, as a
notes of warning, we may say, that
visitors to the tropical countries should
take no risks of eating fish which are
not known to be safe, as well as palat
able. UNEXPECTED CHARITY.

ESCAPADE OP A KING.
How Louis tho illngnificcnt Used to
Louis XIV of France, who frequently
amused hlmselC by going about incog
nito, decided to visit M. le President do
N , who was giving a ball .In honor
of his daughter's marriage. The king
drove to Ills houso with three carriages
filled with' ladlc-s nnd gentlemen of the
court, tho coachmen's liveries having
first been carefully concealed under
But the servants, who had orders to
admit no one except upon presentation
of a card of Invitation, lefused to ad
mit tho masquers, notwithstanding that
it was after midnight. The king there
upon told his followers to set fire to the
doors. Faggots were procured at a
neighboring storo and in a few minutes
thero was a lively blaze.
The servants, astonished at this dar
ing act, rushed off to inform M. do
N , who told them to throw open all
the entrances, for, tald he, "none but
persons of the highest quality would
have the hardihood to do such a thing."
Tho party then entered the hall, pre
senting to the gaze of the astonished
dancers a compact band of a dozen
masquers magnificently attired and dls-
gulped as griffins, holding a naked
sword In one hand and a flaming torch
in tho other. One of them, M. do Lou

dancing at the time, lifted her too and
sent the flrst basin flying. M. de N

restrained his party, begging them not
to let their resentment at being refused
admission carry them too far. So after
dancing as long as they felt inclined

Next day the story was told to the
king by some gentlemen who were Ig

His 'majesty gravely commended tho
action of tlie masquers, ani directed

AUK TIICV IIECOMING EXTINCT?
The Trench Census Shows but Littlo
IncrenHO in Population.
The Official Journal of France pub
lished on January 6 the report of the
Minister of the Interior to the Presi
dent about tho census of the French
population of 1896. Attention Is once
more called to tho exceedingly slow
prrowth of the population of France.
Durlnjr tho five years from 1891 to 1890
the total Increase was but 175,027
souls. The total figures Increased
from 38,342,948 to 38,517,975. The aver
age Increase va3 only 35,000, that Is,
less than one In a thousand.
What aggravates the situation Is
that tho meagre increase occurred en
tirely In cities, while sixty-throe of the
departments have Increased In popula
tion, and the agricultural districts
show a distinct loss. Of the five de
partments of the Normandlo there Is
not one which did not materially de
crease. Even the department of the
Selne-Inferleure, In spite of Rouen
and Havre, ahows a decrease, the en
tire province recording a loss of 51,028
The largo cities, In the meantime,
show a marked Increase. Paris, Is, of
course, at the head of the list, with an
Increabe of 88,877, while Lyons grew by
27,951 and Marseilles by 3S.490. The de
partment of the Seine, which includes
Paris, Increased by 198,919 souls, and
this absorbs not only the entire In
creaso of the population of France dur
ing the last flvo years, but even draws
23,000 more from other provinces.
As to Paris, Its growth has been
constant, but everything but uniform
during the last twenty years. In the
five yeais from 1870 to 1S82 the Increase
was 280,217; the five years following,
75,527; between 1SS0 and 1891 it was
103,407, and the last five years 88,877.
These variations seem to bo ex
plained by the effect of the several ex
positions, the first and the third per
iods just mentioned embracing respect
ively the years 1S78 and 1889, during
which tho Influx of foreigners, as well
as provincials, Into Paris became so
much larger than any other years. Ac
cording to this rule, another very not
