Oyster culture in this state is fin im
portant feature amous its industries,
ami gives employment to a large
numrier of men, not only In caring for
ami cultivating the beds, but in watch
ing and guarding the same, while even
a larger number are kept busy in
culling, payking und opening the bi
valves. The oyster in its native state
seeks no particular place for a home
but grows wherever it finds some sub
stance on the bottom of the river to
rest on and cling to. In its infancy it
is oalled 'seed,'' next in its youth it is
called "plant," and later, or when two
or three years old, it becomes a regular
oyster, and according to its size receives
different names, appropriate for the
uses for which they tire intended, such
as "platers," "half-sliellers,1' "roast
ers" and "slcwers." The "fancy" and
"box" oysters are those culled out or
selected on account of their size, and
are usually shipped in the shell. They
are high in price, bringing $6 a barrel,
and are in great demand.
The native oyster in its natural stata,
was, and in fact is now stronger in
.taste than its cultivated brother, and
does not have that delicacy of taste
which epicures so delight in. The
native oyster also did not propagate
rapidly enough to supply the demand,
and the dealers were forced to com
mence the cultivation of the fish, and
this led to the
LEASING OF BEDS,
aud planting of seed upon them. There
are a very large number of these beds,
ranging in size from one to 100 acres.
The largest number of acres leased by
any one firm is 225, and from these
yearly are taken 150,000 bushels of
oysters. The cost of the best are $10 per
acre and then they are planted with from
one to two thousand bushels of seed each
year, the seed costing from 60 cents to
one dollar per bushel. Some of this
is Virginia seed, but the majority Is
natural and grows In and round the
harbors, rivers and small bays leading
in to the Narragansett, as well as in
the buy itself. Seed planted in the
spring becomes fit for market the fol
lowing fall and winter, while seed put
on the bedsr in the fall, by a year from
the next winter become fancy oysters.
Every oyster dealer has a keeper in
charge of his beds and he is assisted by
from four to twelve men, who catch the
oysters and cull or sort them for
market, plant the seed and watch the
beds. Yet, notwithstanding the fact that
they take the greatest care to guard
the property from thieves, watching it
day and night, oysters are stolen and
shipped away, and no one knows who
the guilty parties are. There are
various methods of thieving, some of
the nefarious work being done by day
und some by night. In conversation
with gentlemen who have had experi
ence with the. thieves, the methods
were detailed us follows: Most of the
stealing by night is done with oyster
tongs, the lislietmen choosing dark
and foggy nights, going directly on to
the iieds, to places where they know the
largest and best oysters are, and there
deliberately use their tongs and till
their boats. Although the beds are
patrolled a good part of the time, yet
while a watchman'' is In one end the
thieves are at work on the other and
before he returns they have
MADE A GOOD HALL,
and move oft' until he goes back down
the line. Foggy" nights are the best
nights for work, for then if the watch
man is more than feet away, ho
cannot hoar the thieves at work. The
common method employed, however is
that iiried by ulleged scullopriien. They
sail along tuo ends of the beds, aud
when the wateliinan is 1,IHK or so feet
nway they cut inside of the line of
stakes, with their scallop dredge out,
aud cutting across the beds, haul in
their dredges and empty out the oysterw
in order that they may repeat the trick.
Unless someone U on shore, in a direct
line with the boundary lino of the bed,
he cannot tell when a boat is 100 feet
inside the stakes. Providence Sunday
"Wub8 Than That."
The other day a lone man sat in the
railroad depot at Elmiraj having a lean
grip sack at his elbow arid his battered
hat drawn down over bis eyes.
"Come from York?" queried an old
chap in a gray wool suit as he sat down
heavily on the bench beside him.
"They say tho stock market down
thar' has bin rather purturbedof late?"
continued the old man.
"Happen to perturb vou any?"
"Perturb! Perturb!1' growled the
Yorker. "Whv you old ass, I was
cleaned out of $18,000 inside of three
days, and am now hunting for a rail

An Auotionenr's Misi,
Soon after an miction store on Mon
roe avenue had opened for business the
other morning, an old farmer and wife
dropped in arid began inspecting goods.
The auctioneer thereupon mounted his
box and began: -
"Ladies and gentlemen, I desire to
call your attention to this sample pair
of suspenders. Who starts them at
liftcen cents?" i
"Did you bear him call me a ladyP"
whispered the woman to her old man.
"And he called mo a gentleman!"
replied tho husband as he grinned his
"Who says fifteen cents to start Vm
going? Who says? Who says? You
can't buy 'em anywhere else in tiu,
world for half a dollar! Don't want
'em, eh? Very well; here's a hat
which was never made for less than
seventy cents. Who starts it at a quar
tera (juartcr a quarter? Ladies
and gentlemen, who bids?
"Called me a lady again!" cackled
the woman as she nudged her husband.
"Yes, but he bore on pretty heavy
when he said gentlemen,'' replied the
"1 guess he knows a lady when he
sees her!" she tartly remarked.
'Terhaps he does, and perhaps it's
all soft soap. Don't be stuck up."
"Or, perhaps you want a watch,"
continued the auctioneer. "Let me
show you a reliable time-keeper which
cost 8 by tho dozen. Who starts it at
$1? Ladies and gentlemen, let me
hear a bid?"
"That's three times he has called me
a lady," grinned the woman. "I've
alius ioldyerl was just as much a lady
as if I lived in tho city."
"I don't believe it."
"Of course he is. Have you got silks
and jewelry and white hands aud a gay
bonnet P You ain't no lady, aud you
orter know it."
"Then you ain't no gentleman!"
"Yes I am! Ho bore on when he
said it. He said ladies just because
that begins the sentence."
"So you don't want a watch?''
quoried the man on the box. "All
right all right. What you don't want
don't buy. Here's a bankrupt stock of
table linen, and over there is a box of
cow hide boots at your own price. Will
the lady step this way while the man
examines the boots?"
"There, there," gasped the woman.
"He means me, and ho called me a
"Yes, and bust his pictur' he called
me a man!" growled tho husband.
"Susan, come along!"
"Out of this." ,

Hanging by Electricity.
It is hi"hlv probable that In the future
chanical operations and results will be
done, ultimately, by electricity, or
through its agencies, and it is perhaps
within the soope of this decade to have
not only electric light. ..but electric
transit, as well as tne electric teiepuone
and the electric telegraph. , Undoub-
edly it is but a question of time when
the monster locomotive tnai now goes
crashing and roaring through the night,
will be supplanted by some light, noise
less macnine inai mauuiauiuics no vnu
motive-power as it runs" and, in a per
fect state, will answer the requirements
both of transit and transportation as
well if not better than .the present
mode. After the world has concluded
to do its lighting, its carrying, travel
insr. cookinrr. manufacturing, etc., by
electricity, what is to prevent the use
of the "current of the skies" for exe
cuting criminals condemned to death?
If men must be made to die for capital
crimes, certainly mere is a ueuer
method of punishment than by hang
ing, and even now the great possibili
ties of electricity oner a substitute that
is in every way more acceptable and
far superior to the present brutal and
repulsive method. Let hanging be
abolished. Why not? , The gallows is
the most brutal instrument of death
employed by civilized nations. Even
the deadly guillotine, the keeu-cutting
knife of France, has been declared by
a majority of tho scientists to be more
humane in its workings tnan uie gal
lows. The work of tho knife is done
speedily, swiftly, and surely. That of
the halter is done, in many oases, bung
lingly. The daily accounts of death by
hanging in this country, with all their
revolting and sickening details, can be
done away with by the adoption of a
method whose virtues will at once be
recognized as superior to those of both
guillotine and gallows. The dynamo
ulectrio machines employed in the electric-lighting
business can be found in
every large community, and their pow
erful currents, if properly managed,
will furnish a force whoso application
to the human system will destroy sensi
bility and life at the same time. Death
by electricity would be the work of an
instant. A touch of a spring and your
victim is gone. Death by hanging is of
long duration, accompanied by intense
aniTacute suQering, and by the guillo
tine we have the uul sickening of
sights, a human head rolling off from
the body, with all , tbj attendant and
bloody horrors of decapitation. So
ciety assuredly would be satisfied to do,
away with those horrible accessories,
the rope, the scaffold, the tightening
noose, the struggling victim, and tho
spurting blood, and other sickening der
tails of execution. Electricity offers a
iure remouy jor tnese evils, ana so
long as men aro bound to sanction a
taw that takes nway human life, it is
their duty to see that the law is carried
nit with as much refinement and do-,
wicyas possible. William-sport Break

The Lawyer and the Thief.
Here is a capital story connected
with a prominent lawyer who has dis
tinguished himself in , the. defense-, of
criminals, as well as in connection wilh
other trials, having frequently, .through
his skill, aided the most hardened crim
inals to escape from "justice"; Some
time ago, whilo pur friund Whs ' a'ttdnit
ing court in an adjoining county, he
was applied to by a singular specimen
of humanity, charged ..with jrrand; lar
ceny, to defend him. Tho lawyer very
naturally inquired what eriiuo ho 'ivhs
accused of. The party accused replied
that somebody had been mead enough
to churge him with stealing 150 in
bank notes and had got him indicted.
"Are you guilty? asked tho lawyer.
"That s none of your business,",, re
plied the accused. "They say ,it makes
no dillerencc with you whethor a man
is guilty or not; you will contrive to dig
him out in some way. So don't t talk
any more about guilt till you hear what
tho jury says." ' 1 : 1 '
"Well, what about the pay?" said
"You just hold on till the trial is

other fellow he has got to back him up,
and vou'll have no trouble about the
The trial commenced, and proved to
be a somewhat protracted and exciting
one. The District-Attorney proved
that the money in question was compos
ed of two 50 notes aud tho remainder
in 10 notes, all of which 1 were wrap
ped up in a piece of oil-silk. The jury,
after listening to the counsel in t he case
and receiving the charge of the Judge,
retired, and soon returned with a ver
dict of not guilty. Tho accused, ' who
was greatly elated with the result of
the trial and tho effort of his counsel,
invited tho latter into ono of the vacant
rooms. As soon as tliey were alone he
slapped his counsel on tho shoulder and
exclaimed: ' '
"Free as water, ain't I? What's the
use of trying ft man for stealing when
you are around? Now I s'poso you
wnnt your pay?"
"Yes; have" you got anything to pay
with?" said the lawyer.
"Lend me your knife, and wo'U see
The lawyer, slightly startled at such
a proposition, rather "reluctantly com
plied. The accused immediately commenc
ed ripping and cutting away at his
waistcoat, and soon produced the roll
of notes for the stealing of which he
had just been tried wrapped up in the
same piece of oil-silk described .by the
witness for the prosecution, and throw
injr. it down on the table before the
astonished lawyer, exclaimed:
"There, take your pay out of that.
I guess there is enough to pay you tol
"vhy, you villian! you stole ' that
money after all," said the lawyer.
"Do you expect I can take any of that
"Stole that money! Why, what are
you talking about? Didn't them twelve
iuen tip-stairs there just say I didn't
steal it? What's the use of trying to
raise a question of conscience after
twelve respectable men have fiven
their opinion upon the subject? lake
your pay out of that, and ask no ques
tions. Don't be modest in taking. 1 got
it easy enough, and you've worked hard
enough for it. .
Our informant did not state how
much tho lawyer took, but we presume
the chap didn't have much change left
after our frieud had satistiuit his "con
science in tne promises.

Clergymen Should be Men of this World.
It is absolutely necessary that the
clergy should be men of the world in
the best sense of the much-abused
phrase. They should know a great
deal, not only of the people of the first
out oi the people oiuie nineteenth ccu
l u i v. Thev Khonlil Im aciiuainted not
only with tho learned speculations of
the schoolmen, but, also, with the un
learned speculations of 1 the 1 simple-
minded folk in their parishes. Thus
the church, though in a different way,
may again become the power which it
was in the so called ages of faith, and
represent not only the splendid achieve
ments of a vanished past, but tho more
splendid triumphs of a living present.
And in addressing themselves to ihe
needs of tho age, the clergy will be do
ing only what nas boon done before by
tho church, over and over again. What
is now accepted because of the stamp of
antiquity, wo must remember, was once
looked on with suspicion Decause it, was
new; and what is now so crude and
new, or even radical, will one day have
tho sanction of a venerable antiquity.
Christianity itself was, at the beginning,
a new thing, and It conquered its place
in the history of mankind,' not because
it appealed to the past, but because it
had a message for tho throbbing life of
its age. , That message may be . made
as vital as to-day, if modern preaching
will concern itself with the neods and
longings of modern men. New York
