A NEW WHALE.
1 Interesting Discovery Recently Made
I By Antarctic Expedition.
I -Rumors of an Antarctic whale un
known to science have reached this
t country from time- to time, exciting
- interet tinged with skepticism among
Europln naturalists. These rumors
have been amply confirmed by E. A.
I Wilson, naturalist to the recent dis
- covery expedition. On January 28,
7 1902, three of these whales, easily
r recognized by the high and narrow
3 back fin, were seen off Ross's great
7 ice barrier, and four others on Feb
ruary 8 following. They were not
t 1-arge, as whales go, measuring only
1 between 20 and 30 feet in length, with
Lshort blunt muzzles, black above and
- white bdlow, the eiharacteristic fin
-standing three or iour feet above the
-back. Mr. Wilson assigns this new
r whale to the Mystacoceti-the baleen
ror whalebone group of cetaceans
Iand considers that it will prove to
Sconstitute a new genus.
SIt is our grief that,.Sir William
Flower is no longer among us to dhare

have been gradually shaping the whal
es into their present wonderful form
and gigantic size, but the very per
fection of their structure and their
m-agnitude combined, the rich supply
of oil protecting their internal parts
from cold, the beautiful apparatus of
whalebone by which their nutrition is
provided for, have been fatal gifts,
which, under the sudden revolution

While Sir William Flower held that
the evidence "was absolutely conclu
sive'' that whales represent the adap
tation of a terrestrial mammal to an
aquatic existence, he was equally
firmly convinced that they are not de
.scended, like seals and walruses, from
the carnivores, but that they exhibit
;affinities with the ungula2tes. True
that none of the cetaceans are vege
tarian, but Sir William Flower be
lieved that primitive ungulates were
omnivorous, as terleast modified
descendants, the pigs, remain to this
day. Treacherous and misleading as
is most popular zoology, he consider
ed that it was a true flash of intelli
gence which caused sailors and fisher
folk to give to the commoner and
smaller cetaceans such names as sea
hog, sea pig and herring hog. The
French also, not certain with lending
us porc-poisson, to shorten into por
poise, have in turn borrowed meersch
wein from the Germans and altered
it to marsouin to denote pigfish.

THE MIDDLE-AGED MAN.
Recalling an Old Joke, He is Remind
ed of His Own Increasing
"No P'tle thing that has happenei

man 10 a New York Sun reporter
"ha brought to my mind so strikilnz.
Iy as this liht ineident did the dif
ference between the old times and th<

had point in the times when I was a
boy and that went the rounds in print
then, besides being often brought in
to play 'n jocular conversation, relat
ed to one's having left his pocketbool

man buying something in a store and
when he comes to pay for it he reach.
es in his pocket in which he always
carriezz h's purse. And it isn 't there
"And then. surprised at not finding
it there. he pats all his other pockets
in sueccssion. and then reaches in
each and every one of them in search
of it. to discover lie hasn't got it
about him anywhere. And then he
looksup and says:
''Well, by gracious! I haven't rot
any money. I must have left my
pocketbook on the piano!'"
" This joke in its day was consider
ed a good one, easy and plain and yet
not without some sublety, a joke ap
pealing to many, because originally it
was put out not as a joke at all, but
as a bluff, as something that was ser
iously propounded and perhaps ser
"Its original utterer. is- supposed
to have been a man who had put up a
fair front. but who when the pinch
came proved to have no money and
who then accounted for its absence in
a way to imply that while he had no
money with him he was, nevertheless,
a man of resources, as this incidental
remark, casually made, was intended
to show. And, perhaps, it went. He
had left his money on the piano. If
he had a piano it was a reasonable in
ference that he was a man of at least
some means, for in those day pianos
were, comparatively speaking, rare,
and so this man who had left his
pocketbook home on the piano might
be a man who could be trusted.
"So as .to its origin and perhaps as
to its occasional early use; but later
it was regarded as a joke only, in
which manner of acceptance it obtains
ed its widest currency, with its hu
morous subtlety of meaning. In this
later use the man to wvhom ,it was up
to pay something and who found, as
perhaps he knew and as others had
shrewdly guessed, that he had no
money sai:d jokingly:
"Well, I guess I must have left my
money home on the. piano.''
"But times have changed. and the
old joke, with whatever significance,
no longer goes.
"Recently when I went to pay for
something in a store wher:e I trade I
found that I had actually left my
pocketbook at home, and the old joke
coming back to me, I said to the young
men who kept the store, smilingly:
'"'I guess I must have left my
pocketbook on the piano.'
"But the old joke awakened in them
no response whatever. And why
should it? They have a piano, I have
a piano, everybody in these days has
a piano, and so my remark as a joke
had no special significance for them.
It was simply a statement by me that
I had left my- money on the piano.
"So I was brought to realize that,
except for those old enough to recall
it, this once honorable and generally
enjoyed joke had now lost its hu

Some Railroad Animals Collect $200
Among the different funds estab
lished by the Great Western Railway
company for the benefit of their em
ployees, the "widows and orphans'
fund' has become familiar to the
traveling public through the instru
mentality of the company's collect
ing dogs. The sum collected by the
dogs amount to between $200 and $300
per annum, and provides enough to
meet the assistance given by the insti
tution to about twenty-five widows
out of about 1,500 who are dependent
on the fund. Some of the dogs earn as
much as 30 pounds or 40 pounds a
year; others are not so successful. A
g;reat deal depends upon the charac
teristics of the animal and much upon
the way in which it is train
ed. The most famous of the Great
Western railway collecting dogs, says
the Great Western Railway Magazine,
was undobutedly Tim of Paddington,
which collected at that station for a
numbr of yars. He has been dead
a fvw years now. but his preserved
remains are to be seen in a glass case
on the principal leparture platform.
where lie C'.lutilnes t(, appeal to tle
public oun behalf of the widows and
orphans. In May, 1900, he was by
special command of the late Queen
Victoria honored by a presentation to
her majesty at Paddington Station,
and in February, 1901. he was sim
ilarlv honored by a presentation to
his Majesty King Edward VIL He
has earned for the fund considerably
more than 1,000 pounds.
Another collecting dogi-Jim-was
brought to Slough Station when a few
weeks old. He was like a ball of
wool and could be put into one's
pocket. He was very carefully trained.
The first thing taught him was to
get over the steps of the foot-bridge,
and he never afterward once crossed
the metals. He commenced collect
in when about four months old. Af
ter a time he wa- taught to bark when
he r,eeived a coin, which little re
cofnition caused a ogreat deal of
:usrment to his numerous patrons.
One Sunday zi hospiltal parade was
organized at Southall, and Jim was
taken there to collect. When his box
es were opened they were found to
contain 265 coins. Considering that
he gave a bark for each one, this mist
be regarded as a rood afternoon's
work. He died suddenly in harness in
