At one time it was widely credited
that flying fish possessed the power to
accelerate their passage through the
air by flapping their "wings." as their
enormously elongated pectoral fins are
sometimes called. Had this been prov
ed these fish would have actually shar
ed with bats, birds and insects a pow
er which has been denied to all other
living creatures. But men of science
are now agreed that the motion of the
fins sometimes seen when the fish
leaves the water is merely a continua
tion of its swimming movement and In
no way aids the passage of the fish
through the air. The method of the
fish's flight Is this: It rushes through
the water at high speed, hurls itself
into the atmosphere and, spreading its
huge winglike fins, glides rapidly for
ward until its momentum is exhausted.
Then it drops back again into the wa
ter. So great Is the impetus gained
that these fish under favorable condl
tions will "fly" for a distance of 500
feet. But when once the impetus is
exhausted the fish is quite unable to
sustain Itself in the air by muscular

A Fowl That Won a Battle.
A singular story is told of a gallant
cock whose moral influence at a crit- v
ical moment during the battle of St. C
\ incent helped to save a British man- f
of-war from the hands of the enemy. 0
The fowl in question formed part of
the live stock of the Marlborough. a a
vessel which had suffered so severely
that her captain was considering the v
advisability of striking his flag. The 1E
ship was entirely dismasted, while the
chief officers had been carried below d
severely wounded, and the crew, with- n
out anybody to cheer them up. were g
beginning to grow sullen under the
heavy fire of the enemy, to which they v
were hardly able to respond. At this u
emergency a shot struck the coop in li
which the fowls were confined. The p
only surviving occupant, a cock, find- (
ing himself at liberty, fluttered up
and perched himself on the stump of
the mainmast and surveyed the scene
of carnage around him. Then, flapping a
his wings in defiance, he began to crow t
vociferously. He was answered by s
three hearty and exhilarating cheers s
from the crew, who all had a good t
laugh and, with spirits thus renewed,
continued the action with a vigor that
lasted until a turn in the battle res
cued them from their tight position.

The stale smell of cigar smoke is

With the aid of a pair of pinchers, how

traveled to Scarboro, Me., the painting
of an old time sea captain of that
town who long years ago was lost with
all on board his ship In the China seas.
The ship sailed from the" home port
with every prospect ot a successful
voyage, but she never returned to the
home land. Years went by and she
was given up as lost. ner name was
taken from the shipping list, and no
news of her came back .to the waiting

captain such as the Chinese artists
paint, and on the back of the picture
were the captain's name and that of the
port from which he sailed. The paint

picture of the Scarboro sea captain'
