They Are Kept In Cages Like Canary
Birds In Japan.
Selling crickets is a lucrative busi
ness in Japan. where the Insects are
valued for their songs and kept In
cages like canary birds. In Tokyo
there are two wholesale merchants who
send their agents into the streets of the
large cities. The Insects are carried in
little bamboo cages. A good seller
clears approximately from 80 cents to a
dollar a day. An insect valued for its
music brings from 2 to 7 cents. The
Kusa hibari is the most valuable of all
the songsters, but the common cricket
and the grasshopper are considered ex
The singers are collected from the
fields in September, before laying time.
They are taken from the grass and
shut up In glass jars. Soon after they
are imprisoned the females lay their
eggs and die almost immediately after
ward. The jars containing them are
kept in a temperature of 80 degrees C.
The young come forth in March.
The loss of eggs is about 10 per cent.
The male is the singer. He only is an
object of commerce, and from a hun

birth to death. The locust is the toy of
the Japanese child. He is caught on
bamboo twigs rubbed with a gluey sub

ignorance or the cruelty of his keeper.

FISH AND THEIR FOOD.
Queer Ways by Which Some of the
Toothless Species Get a Meal.
The curious ways In which fishes
eat form quite a study. Some fishes
have teeth and some have none at all.
In some the teeth are found upon the
tongue, in some in the throat and in
some In the stomach. Some draw in
their food by mucton; the sturgeon Is
one of this class. The jellyfish ab
sorbs Its food by wrapping its body
around the prey it covets. The stat
ish fastens Itself to Its victim, turns
Its stomach wrong side out and en
gulfs Its dinner without the formal
Ity of swallowing It through a mouth
So there are all sorts of methods for
those regularly toothless, and the
ishes which have teeth show almost
as great a diversity In the number.
style and arrangement of them. The
ray or skate "has a mouth set trans
versely across its head, the jaws work
ing with a rolling motion lik.. two
hands set back to back. In the jaws
are three rows of fiat teeth, set lIke a
mosaic pavement, and between these
rolling jaws the fish crushes oysters
and other mollusks like so many nuts."
The carp's teeth are set back In the
pharyni, so that It actually masti
cates Its food in Its throat, while the
sea urchin has fie teeth surrounding
Its stomach and working with a pe
cular centralized motion, which makes
