must follow these directions:
Take your umbrella with you and

of the pockethook say to n water
pipe or something equally damp and
handy, 'hold your umbrelln out at

RETURN AFTER MANY YEARS
Tllcflsh Again Caught In Vast Num
bers, Though They 'Were Believed
to Have Been Wiped Out.
Tllcflsh are a fish with a short but
remarkable history, writes n corre
spondent. Their discovery was dra
matic. In May, 1S71), Cnptnln Klrby
of the schooner Hatchings, out of
Olourester, Mass., was trawling for
cod off the Nantucket banks. No cod
was found, but a largo fish, unknown
to science, was present In prent num
hers. In a very short time 5,000 pounds
of the new species were caught. The
fish proved to be of hlfjli food value
and Rood keeping qualities. There was
nbli: popular demand for them, and
hiiKO quantities were caught for three
years. Then the supply failed as sud
denlv as It had appeared. In the
spring of 18S2 the boats fal.lcd to
catch a single lllelish. A few days
later lircomlng boats reported having
passed through miles of dead or dying
tllellsh. Thev covered nn nrea of 5,000
square miles, nnd were estimated to
From 1SS2 to 1015 no trnco of tllc
flsh was found In any waters of the
world, adds our correspondent. Scien
tific men wen; convinced that the fish
bad been suddenly and mysteriously
exterminated. Then, early In 1015, a
government boat. In almost the Identi
cal spot off the Nantucket banks as
that'll! which tllollvh were first taken,
again caught some of the sumo species.
Again there proved to bo vnst num
bers of them, and new grounds were
also discovered nlong the New Jersey
coast. Since then the tlleflsli has been
caught without interruption, but the
riddle of Its strange disappearance for
83 years has mil yet been solved.
New Meaning of "Intrigue."
The latest verbal Importation from
France that I have had occasion to re
mark Is no more than the conferring
of a new meaning upon an' old word.
In English "to Intrigue" has always
meant to plot surroplltlouMy,' whereas
In French It was always used (by ex
tension) to Indicate .the state of puz
zled doulit In which we may find our
selves when we havj! reason to suspect
n surreptitious plot; and this sec
ondary French meaning Is now pass
ing over Into English, so that we mas
read "In the light stories that run
through our magazines, "she Intrigued
me," meaning that she puzzled me, and
not meaning Hint she involved me In
an Intrigue. This fialllc secondnry
meaning will probably force Itself Into
our yielding Anglo-Saxon, and we shall
have hereafter the privilege of em
pfoylng "to Intrigue" In either of two
different Intents. I doubt If this will
bo to the profit of the lnnguage; but.
protest Is Idle, since the fate of a nov
elty nlways depends upon Its ultimate
usefulness. Hrander . Matthews In

On tho official time table the Com
muters' Uniiccommodation wns sched
uled as the 5:55, but nil of the friends
nnd neighbors who know- and loved
Peg Roberts called It the 5:.5-55. If
you will benr In mind, ns Peg did, tbnt
ofllclally the train would not leave be
fore 5:50, you will readily deduce
Peg's habit and you will nlso catch a
wee glimpse of her charming person
ality, which meant thnt never, under
any clrcumstnnces, did she have un
Idle bnlf-mlnute on her hands.
When called to account for this she
explained thnt she wns doing her pnrt
t'o defent Satan In his effort to tlnd
work for her, nnd In this wise she
Hut when one nfternoon Peg became
overzenlous In her battle against Sa
tan and bis employment agency, she
rushed for the train, she stampeded
toward It 'through n nearby gate, Im
pelled to grenter and yet more grace
ful speed by the formidable "all
aboard" which she heard ahead and
then, with one llnal effort she made It,
not by the skin of her teeth but by the
aid of a good right arm, and not her
own right nrni, either.
And then, poor Peggy. She came In,
so" to speak, then nnd there for the
most carefully and emphatically given
lecture which she hnd received since
her schooldays. She received a movie
synopsis ten verbal reels long. Before
the amused commuters she hoard of
tho futile folly of Just such acts ns
hers which he had witnessed many
times before. She wns told of the
dangers to life and limb, of the fool
ishness of such last-minute leaps, nnd
a meek-nppenrlng Peggy only bowed
her bend In acquiescence nnd denied
It In her soul.
Then the friends, the nervous few
who worry for every "regular" on the
train, those who tnke n delight In see
ing that the conductor collects each
and every ticket, that the brakeman
calls every station, although they know
thnt the entire car-full Is ns famlllnr
with the road as they themselves
then they, too, added their voices,
and Peg wns again told of the dangers
of her "eleventh-hour-ncss," as some
Hut the owner of tho good right arm,
supported by the brn"lns nnd brawn of
the most attractive nnd eligible male
In the same community, then came to
hor rescue again, this time, ns before,
to uphold her, although In argument
rather than In deed. Quietly he npol
oglzed for bis former remnrks. Peg
bad a perfect right, so ho said, to
catch the train on the fly, ns It were,
nnd he regretted subjecting her to. the
forces nround nnd their Insistent lec
tures nnd remarks. He further re
gretted bnvlng mndo her such n sub
ject nf conversation nnd observation,
and please, might be have an oppor
tunity to npologlzo In private, to ex
plain further bis sorrow over tho en
tire Incident, bnfring the real one of
her boarding the train Itself?
Now, when nny young man evinces
suflicient Interest In any particular
young lady to deliver her an nddress
on the follies of putting herself In the
wny of. personnl danger, then, just
then, Is bo really Interested. When he
next regrets his harsh words, although
they were honestly Intended for her
good, then the Interest Is compounded,
nnd when bo Inter repeats his first
words, then, well, then, In banking
terms, tho prlncipnl Is doubled.
Arthur Altken did nil this. For the
first evening when he called he spent
the entire time telling Peg just how
many kinds of n fool.be had been that
afternoon to speak ns he did, and still
n wee bit, provoked, but with n far
seeing, smile. Peg neglected to contra
dict. In. fact, still smarting under the
publlcsreproof, she almost agreed with
Pays pnssed evenings passed. Un
der the companionship of her escort
the wnlks to the depot each evening
were nccompllshcd,wlthutit the many
Interruptions of former days, and a
meek but still more lovely Peg board
ed the 5:55 with nsslstnnce.
Odcnslonnlly the old subject came
up. Frequently Httlo things occurred
to bring bnck reproof, but under It all
Peg smiled, for sho knew thnt the In
terest wiir being compounded nnd the
settlement soon due. And It enme In
n most iinr.omantlc wny. Just one of
those spontaneous happenings on the
wny to the train when Arthur told Peg
of nil he felt and hoped nnd cared.
Ho begged for n response. "Not this
evening, but now, Peg. Tell mo now,"
nnd In Uio enrnestness of his. plen
their steps slackened nnd ngaln In the
midst of the hurrying evening crowd
."Peg, tell mo now."
Peg paused for n fraction of n min
ute. Her time hnd come. A million
little love glints In her eyes were hid
den beneath her bat, n thousand lit
tle Imps were bidding her hurry him
on, nnd she started slowly forward ns
sho looked up nnd said:
"If wo don't hurry' we'll miss our
trnln nnd fnte."
She paused, then Arthur nlso waited
n moment before he said:
"Peg, you know how I've felt ever
since we met. You know how I felt
from thnt minute. Oh, Peg, you know
how I always think of It as the trnln
of love, nnd" He stopped Just long
enough for Peg to smile up at him and
say In a hnppy little voice full of sun
shine nnd Joy:
"Hurry, dear, or jvo'll miss tho
0:55-50." Then he knew.
