AN OLD TIME TREAT
lampreys Once a Fairly Coveted
Dish-in New England.
PRIZED BY GENERAL STARK.
The Old Hero Even Refused One Year
to Give Up One of His sixteen Bar- !
rels to an Eel Hungry Neighbor.;
Their Former Fame Sung In Verse.
I was recently carried back to my i
boyhood days by a dinner of lampreys,!
locally kntfwn in the olden time as lam 1
per eels because of their superficial re
semblance to the true eel. The struc- i
tore of the lamprey places it low down!
in the ranks of the fishes. In fact a
strict classification excludes it from j
The lamorev is a vertebrate without'
a bene. Its spine is but cartilage, and ;
there are no other tissues that are even j
as hard as cartilage. It has a sucking
mouth and seven gi-i openings on each
side of the body back of the head. It
is the mouth and its peculiar use that
are described in its scientific name,
Petromyzon marinus, meaning ocean
stone sucker. The color of the sea
lamprey (to distinguish it from the little
lampreys of the rivers) is brown
mottled with black. Its maximum
length is about three feet.
In the early days of New Hampshire
lampreys came up the Merrimac and
other rivers by myriad thousands and
were <^ught by the settlers and salted
down for the year's supply of meat as
"were salmon, shad and alewives that
came up from the ocean at the same
time e^rly summer and for the same
purpose, the depositing of their spawn
In the fresh waters of the rivers and
lakes. Most of the fish were caught
with seines and dipnets.
The lampreys were caught by hand
in the shallower water of the brooks.
The fishermen waded in where the water
was shallow and the current swift
and watched for the "eels," as the
lampreys were invariably called. In
a rapid current lampreys progress by
darting for a short distance and then
clinging by the sucking mouth to a
stone while resting for another plunge.
It was then that the men seized them j
?nd threw them to the shore, where
belpers put them into recept-aeles.
So important was the catching of
fish in those days in the town of Derry
field, now Manchester, that all work
vras suspended when they arrived.
There is a story that lacks verification
to the effect that the mau appointed
to watch for the advent of the fish
spied the vanguard on a Sunday morning.
He hastened to the meeting
bouse, where most of the town was as ;
sembled, and interrupted the sermon j
"with the cry: "The fish .have come-j
The fish have come!" The preacher!
stop|ied, pronounced the benediction,
and the men all went fishing.
There is auother story that General
Stark, who had settled down on his
?ai*ra after the Revolution, was asked ;
t>y a neighbor for the loan of a barrel |
of "eels" for the winter. The general J
replied that he couldn't spare any. for!
lie had but sixteen barrels to last him j
However much or little truth there
may be in these stories, it is a fact:

Lampreys are fond in the north Atlantic
as far south as Virginia, besides
being landlocked in some or tne lanes
in western and northern New York.
While they are not abundant enough
to make much impression on the pres"

food value and the time and manner
of catching them, minus prejudice,
"would do a little toward solving a modern

They left together, and on the top step

| RUSSIA'S GREAT RAILWAY, f'
j It Runs From Moscow to Vladivostok,
a Distance of 6,000 Miles.
If was Alexander III. who first real- j
ized the possibility of making a rail- i i
way across the whole length of the j <
continent, and in the year 1802 his son. j |
Czar Nicholas II., laid the first stone at >' i
Vladivostok. This was done in order !
, to guard the newly .acquired territories ! ,
j of the valleys of the Amur and Ussuri! j
from the inroads of other nations; the i ,
! railways would thus facilitate the I !
transport of troops if necessary. It (
j covers a distance or u.wu mues from !
j Moscow to Vladivostok. The Russian 1
I government voted ?40.000.000 for its j .
i construction, and it was completed in i ^
i eleven years.
It takes three days to reach Zlatoust,
in the Ural mountains. There is to be
seen the famous "stone of parting.'* j
Could it speak, what a number of j
heartrending tales it could tell. When i J
criminals and political prisoners were (
sent to Siberia that "great lone iand" ; 1
of the east, their friends usually bade j (
them goodby in the presence of the i 1
i cold stone. ]
From Zlatoust the main line proceeds!
to Omsk, whence it reaches the shores! '
of Lake Baikal, one of the largest | 1
fresh water lakes in the world. Some-, 1
times the Russians term it "the holy i <
sea," because an island in the lake ] '<
was believed to be the abode of an I
evil spirit, who continually had to be |
appeased with sacrifices. Seals and t
beautiful sponges abound in the lake. <
Previous to 1905 the whole train was I
transferred by means of a wonderful ;
movable platform, where it rested 011 j i
rails, on to the steamer on Lake Bai-! ]
kal. This steamer was built at New- j j
castle, and was fitted with powerful j 1
screws, which could be driven through j
ice four feet thick. Now the railway ! ,
Is continued round the south of Lake j ,
j Baikal.?Pearson's Weekly.
ROMANCE AND THE SADDLE. <
Clatter of Hoofs and Jingle of Spur*
Fire the Imagination.
Romance likes to come on horseback.
The jingling spurs and bridle irons
chant a happy paean in his ears, and
from the saddle, as from the throne,
he looks out over the workaday world.
Romance always has been linked with
riding. In the playroom, mounted on a ,
gallant rocking chair, youth rides into
a land of golden aeeas; later ne swings j
In long gallops on the faithful hobbyhorse
into spicy and fugitive adventure.
To the page on a prancing palfrey and
to the cavalryman in khaki the lure of
romance is the; same.- T&e rhythm of
galloping hoofs thuds always in the
imagination, the lady's favor on the
lance and the quivering scarlet guidon
flutter alike a mysterious and eternal
challenge to the spirit of youth. "To
horse and away," and all the world's ,
before one. v ... . .
Stevenson always wanted to write 9
story about a man galloping up to an
inu at night, and the very suggestion
brings a tingle to the imagination.
By on the highway, low and loud.
By at the gallop goes he. (
He heard him in the sleepless mid
nights of his childhood, and. indeed,
the sound of thudding hoofs always
makes the heart beat faster. The so
ciable clattering of a single footer g;j
asphalt, the crackling of twigs and
leaves on the quiet autumn trails, the
| muffled rhythm of a canter on the turf
i its resonance on a unuge?an mesc
! make music in the ears and bring the
very smell of adventure. To him who
rides there is always "something lost
behind the ranges"?and his heart
yearns for it.?Scribner's Magazine.

TORE UP THE CONTRACT.
And It Called For a Salary of a Million
Dollars a Year.
/v? 1 2 ?' ATTAt* f Al?n
Uiuy uue mau iu iuc nui iu oci iuit
up a $1,000,000 a year salary contract.
When the SteeL corporation took over
the Carnegie company it acquired as
one of its liabilities?it really was an
asset?a contract to pay Charles M.
Schwab that unheard of sum annually.
J. P. Morgan didn't knpw what to do
about it The highest salary on record
was $100,000. He was in a quandary.
Finally-he summoned Schwab, showed
him the contract and hesitatingly
asked what could be done about it. .
"This," said Schwab.
He tore it up.
That contract had netted Schwab
Sl.300.000 the previous year.
"I .didn't care what salary they paid j
me. I was not animated by money j
motives. I believed in what I was
trying to doi and I wanted to see It
brought about. I canceled that con-!
tract without a moment's hesitation." I
Thus did Mr. Schwab explain his ac-J
tion to me. . . i
There was a sequel. Morgan later j
told Carnegie how magnanimously
Schwab had acted. Carnegie remarkti,
"Charlie is the only man I know
who would have done that."
And he promptly sent Schwab in
bonds the full amount of the contract
Carnegie declared publicly, "I owe
my fortune chiefly to two men. Bill
Jones and Charlie Schwab."
Schwab, let me add. for years picked
all the Carnegie partners. Corey was

first spotted and promoted him. The
only man to whom the canny Scot ever
gave carte blanche was Schwab,?B.
