ETHICS OF FISHING.
A SCIENTIFIC VIEW OF THE ALLEGED
CRUELTY OF THE SPORT.
The Creatures Are Most Happy When
They Are Hooked-They Have Little
Capacity For Suffering and Even
Little Pleasure In Eating.
A little boy was fishing for the first
time. With the customary luck of a
beginner he had bass and perch galore
to answer the invitation of his bait.
Presently the impulses of the hu
mane side of his nature made a little
hesitating protest against the more
savage Instincts of the sportsmanlike
side. The wriggling of the fish when
he caught them troubled him, and he
sought to apologize to his conscience
for the suffering he was apparently in
flicting. He said, "I think the reason
they jump so is that they are so glad to
get out of that wet water."
Curiously enough, if we may accept
the testimony of the scientists, the lit
tle boy was quite right. A fish is never
so happy as when he is drawn out of
the water. The air is to him quite all
that laughing gas is to a human being.
It gives him a hundred times more
oxygen per second than his gills ever
got for him from the inhalation of wa
ter. It makes him delightfully drunk
en. It exhilarates him. It fills him
with a completeness of physical joy
the only joy he is capable of feeling
wholly unknown to him in his native
element. He dies presently, It is true,
but he dies in an ecstasy of enjoyment
instead of dying in his appointed fash
ion by suffocation in the maw of some
In a footnote to the thirteenth canto
of "Don Juan" Byron denounces Izaak
Walton as a "sentimental savage" and
characterizes fishing as "the cruelest,
the coldest of pretended sports." That
only shows how little Byron knew
about the matter. His sports involved
the sacrifice of women rather than
It is time to set this matter of fish
ing upon its moral legs, as it were, an
end to be accomplished merely by tell
ing the truth about it. A fish is the
very lowest form of the vertebrates. It
is incapable of any joy except that of
getting hooked and thus drawn out of
the water to which its nature con
demns it and for a time breathing the
air that intoxicates it in delightfully
deadly fashion. It has not even the in
stinct of sexual association except in
the case of a few rare species. It
knows nothing of companionship, for
the scientists tell us that even when
fish swim in "schools" It is only be
cause they are engaged in a common
predatory pursuit of prey, each endeav
oring to snatch from the others the
morsels they seek to swallow.
So low in the scale is the fish that
even in eating he has no pleasure ex
cept that of distending his stomach.
For the scientists find no "taste gob
lets" at the base of his tongue, and ev
ery fisherman knows that the fish
swallows his prey whole, with no pos
sibility of detecting its flavor. And
further, every fisherman who has troll
ed knows that the fish is so far an in
discriminate gormand in his search for
food that he will swallow a coffee
spoon with a bur attached as readily
as the daintiest bait morsel that could
be displayed in front of his greedy eyes
and his rapacious mouth.
Still, again, every fish that is caught
upon a hook gets only what he de
serves. He is caught every time In an
attempt to swallow some other crea
ture whole and digest It In slow tor
ture. Indeed the entire life of every
fsh is passed in a ceaseless endeavor
to catch and swallow other fish. So far
as science can discover, fish of most
species make no distinction even in fa
or of their own young, their only
ground of selection being a considera
tion for their individual throats in the
act of swallowing. On that account
alone the severely spined sunfish es
apes the predatory perch. and the
bullhead the moment his "horns" are
hard ceases to be in danger even from
the most voracious of pickerel.
The fisherman is not a monster of
wanton cruelty. He is merely a de
scendant of Adam exercising that "do
minion" over inferior creatures which
God authorized him to exercise.

A Lunatie's Wit.
As Horace Mann sat in his study one
evening an insane man rushed into the
room and after abusing him for all
kinds of fancied grievances challenged
him to a. fight.
Mr. Mann replied: "My dear fellow,
It would give me a great pleasure to
accommodate you, but I can't do it, the
odds are so unfair. Iam a Mann by
name and a man by nature-two
against one! It would never do to
The insane man answered: '"Come
ahead. I am a man and a man beside
myself. Let us four have a fight."

If a child is "slow" around home and
takes an hour to dress when only a
quarter of that time is necessary, It Is
a bad habit The "slow" men and wo
men are those who fail to make a suc
ess of life. How often you see grown
people tinker about something a half a
day that could be done in an hour!
They learned the habit as children.

STEER BY THE STAR.
Night on the sea, and one lone ship
In the midst of the darkness there;
A trackless waste spread all about,
And the blackness everywhere.
But gleaming in th'e sky above
Are seen the beacons of the night,
Set there to guide that lonely ship
Across thq pathless sea aright.
The waves roll high and toss the ship,
A plaything on their turbid crest;
The sea lifts up its eager arms
And opens wide its heaving breat.
But safely still the vessel rides,
For one there is who guides aright,
Because his eyes are fixed upon
Those faithful beacons of the night.
N No vessel sailing o'er life's sea
But safely may the harbor find
If the Great Beacon of the sky
Be ever kept in sight and mind.
The light at times may shine but dim,
The way seem dark, the harbor far,
But he cannot get off the course
SWho guides his vessel by the Star.
-Arthur J. Burdick in Los Angeles Herald.
YOUR OWN VOICE.
You Would Be Surprised if You
Heard Its Exact Imitation.
"One of the strangest things in life,"
said an amateur philosopher of Camp
street. "is the fact that we never really
become acquainted with our physical
selves. Here I have been living in this
body of mine for nearly 50 years, yet I
have no idea how I look, bow I hear
myself. what sort of an impression I
make on the minds of others when
they meet me in daily intercourse. I
don't even know how my own voice
sounds, although I've been listening to
it ever since I can remember. Did you
ever hear yourself talk in a phono
graph? No? Well, try it the next
time you have a chance, and you will
not only be astonished, but, what is
still stranger, you will be disappointed,
probably a little shocked. Everybody
has that experience.
"I supposed that I was perfectly fa
miliar with my own voice and thought
privately that it was rather agreeable.
I had been told so plenty of times by
other people and never knew that they
were only 'jollying' me until 1 made a
phonographic 'record' and set it grind.
Ing. At the first word I jumped back
in dismay and nearly pulled my ears
off in the listening tubes.
"'Merciful heavens!' I said to myself.
'Is it possible I talk like that?' I
thought there must be something the
matter with the cylinder and called in
a friend to hear it. He grinned with
delight. 'That's one of the most natu
rai records I ever heard in my life.' he
declared heartily, and I yearned for his
"But, as I just remarked, everybody
who tries the experiment has the same
experience. The voice is always abso
lutely unfamiliar and positively un
pleasant. Yet there is a certain some
thing about it that differentiates it
from any other voice you ever heard in
your life - something indescribable
that gives you a little secret thrill clear
down to the soies of your feet. It is
the voice of the mysterious body which
you inhabit and don't know."-New
Mistake of the New Riveter.
A party of six brawny men were en
gaged in an animated discussion at Mc
Kees Rocks. It was noticed that five
index fingers were missing fromp the
gesticulating hands. Only one man
had all of the fingers he was born'with.
"They're riveters from Schoenville."
said a man who was asked. "They say
most of the male children born down
there now have the forefinger missing
from their right hand. The riveters at
the Pressed Steel Car shop work one
inside of the car and one outside. The
man inside shoves the rivets through,
and the man outside swings the ham
mer. They are paid by 'the piece.' and
they work fast Often the rivet won't uit,
and if the man inside of the car happens
to be new at the work he sticks his fin
ger through the hole to learn what is
wrong. The man outside promptly
smashes the finger with his sledge. He
doesn't do it purposely, but he works
so rapidly that he can't tell a blacken
ed finger from a rivet. lie never
knows his error until he sees the blood
spurting from the stump of the finger.
None of the riveters has lost more than
one finger in that way."-Pittsburg
