Wind and Fistu
-A singular correspondence hai
lately been brough to light between
the prevailing direction of the wind
on the coast of New South Wales
and the average catch of fish. The
winds influence the ocean currents,
which In turn Influence the course
of the fish. Thest, Influences have
periods of three or four years. Thus
in 189S there was a general scarcity
of fish, out afterward they became
snore and more abundant up to 1901.
In 1905 there was another scarcity
of fish, but the next: ??ar they began
to return in increasing numbers. The
cause of tLese variations was a mys
tery until the coincidence with the
prevailing direction of the coastal
winds was noticed. Now it is thought
that by the study of the winds the
prospects of the fishermen may be
predicted two or three years In ad
A Snake Bite Knife.
The British government has been
actively fighting snakes in India fora
dozen years or more, and still these
reptiles kill many thousand natives
annually. Sir Lander Brumton, a
little while ago, devised a neat
pocket instrument for handy use in
case of snake bite, and the Indian
government has decided to distrib
ute the apparatus widely among the
natives. It consists of a small knife
In the handle of which is a oavity.
This is kept filled with permanganate
of potash, a powerful antiseptic and
caustic. When a person is bitten he
immediately cuts the wound open
widely, and rubs .the permanganate
upon the raw surface. If the bite
is in the extremeties, and this oper
ation Is performed without delay,
the treatment la very effective. ?
When the Huckster is Most Zealous.
"I never buy anything from a
" huckster who makes a great outcry
about his stuff or seems very anxiou?
to sell." says a S?rth End housekeep
er. "'for t?e chances are ten to one
that there Is something the matter
with whatever he has to sell.
, "'When two men with one wagon
come up the street roaring, 'appools'
so they can be heard 'or four or five
blocks. 1 know that some cold stor
age man has a big stock on hand Just
about to spoil and that the hucksters
know that condition of the apples
as well as the cold storage man.
hence their zeal and energy to gei
rid of their stock."?St. Louis Glob*'
