women since 18S0, a rato of increase,
nearly 2ys times as great as tho in

The very unusual story of swapping
n daughter for a wife is reported f roni
Toledo, Wash., says the Now Yoil:
World. A farmer named Thomison
lost his wife a short time ago. She left
him a little baby gill. Tho child he
took to a neighbor 1y the name of Put
nam to be cared for. Of course fre
quent Tisits weio made to see how tho
baby'was getting along.
Mrs. Putnam was quite a comely per
son and icry soon attracted the atten
tion of tho widowed farmer. Then he
soon learned to love her and, woistof
ell, his love was reciprocated. The hus
band discovered the situation Tho lov
ers naturally expected a scene but theie
Instead of making tho neighboring
Iiills resound with jealous rago Putnam
called upon Thompson mid they dis
cussed tho matted in a business-like
manner. Putnnm professed to bo tired
of his wife and said he would as lief that
some other fellow would take her away
as not; but he wanted something in re
turn. IIo wanted some ono around the
house to' minister to his wants; soiu ,
ono he could learn to love. Thompson
had a daughter who suited him vcry
well and, if it was just tho same, lie waa
willing to trade his wife for her.- That
suited Thompson, and the girl, too. So
a bargain was struck and the exchange
made. Thompson and Mrs Putnafn went
to Aberdeen and the girl toCastloRock
Medical students who arc engaged
in the study of ophthalmology are btill
wondering at the feat Dr. rleming
Carrow, professor of that -ranch in
tho Unhersity of Michigan, performed
upon a young man last week. This
patient had completely lost the sight
of one eye through disease, and; in
order to prevent the contagion from
spreading, Dr. Carrow inserted a small,
thin watch crystal beneath tho lid of
tho other eye. So far the experiment
seems to be very successful, and it is
expected that the flesh will knit close
ly around tho watch crystal so cs to
permit no impurities to enter. Mean

TWO FISH PROBLEMS.
Obscrtntlous and Itellcctlona of n Uaclc
"Do fish f M pain ?" I dunno I never
was a fish. iays a writer in Outing. Yet
1 have observed frcshly-lontietl llah to
execute certain movements which
seemed to indicate thut tho fish felt
fcoinethlng; mebbo 'twusn't puin. It
n.ay hate been simply agony, or any old
tiling like that. Those who used in
their younger days to carry in their
trousers pocket a cork stuck full of
hooks may remember occasion- when
n hook worked freo from tho cork.
Once I accidentally hooked a pointer
dog by tho car, and the language he
used and the "way he ran out of line
convinced mo thnt ho felt something,
He may hate felt only n pleasant sen
sation, but he didn't come within 50
feet of me for two' ho'flrs. The desperate
lagging' badaVd'-lgzarlresistrinbe of
d Hooked iish7thcV"wild fll)(lnp3i and
s'trulViing gasps'of'a -freshlyllanded flsh
inay be evidences of pleasurable sen
iations. but I nm tempted to consider
them as closely allied to that joyous
thrill which prompts a man to rise
above the inslduous carets of a strong,
well-bent pin. "Do fish feed nt night?"
Well, well do fish swim? Country
boys, how about the bigtfire beside the
water? How about the boy who got
first to the big boom and thus secured
the boss place? How about the spiky-
finned channel cats and mud cats that
came up two at a time; the goggle-eyed
rock bass, special prizes; the hideous
"mud puppies," which at once went
into tho fire along with a yard of line?
Ifow about the night lines? How about
everything connected with the sport
that used to get better and better ns
midnight approached, until tho glo
lious fun and -occasional profanity were
interrupted by the sound of tho "old
man" fulling foul of a wire fence or
breaking a gad from the plum tree up
the bank? Do fish feed nt night? I
dunno they used to.
