caught a mile from shore. Its body is
nearly two feet in diameter and its
claws are more than a yard long. It
has enormous eyes that protrude in
such a way as to give it a very fero

placed in a large vessel flled with sea

WHY THi TRAI IS THE BIQ
RAILROADS' 1OST EXPENSIVE PATRON.
SNE of the greatest sour s of ly
annoyance and perplexity to di
every railroad superintendent ie
'- the "hobo." The members tai
of this easy-going gentry have selected 01
the road of steel as a natural successor pt
for their purposes to the "king's high- a,
way" of a century and a half ago. It th
is stated on good authority that the fr
various railway lines of the country pi
spend each year more than a million th
dollars in attempts to keep their lines pt
free from tramps. aW
It is easy to understand, says the O
New York Herald, why the "hobo" al
prefers the railways to the highways. he
in the first place, they offer the most
direct routes between towns, and, in
spite of beliefs to the contrary, the
genuine "hobo" prefers not to stray
any further than is necessary from
these centres of population. It is
easier to count ties than to pick one's
way through the uncertainties of
country dirt roads. The railroad is
never muddy in wet weather nor very
dusty in the dry season. Moreover,
there is r.lways the alluring possibility
of stealing a ride on the trucks, the
"blind baggage" or within the friendly
shelter of some box car.
W:.ile the railway is a great boon to
the members of the genus hobo, it can
not be said that the reverse is true.
In fact, so great a dislike do the rail
way offliqals show to the free and in
discriminate use rf their property that
they spend thousands of dollars in em
ploying men to drive the tramps off
trains and away from the line.
A single line of railway-one of the
more important companies-spends up
ward of $40,000 every year il fighting
tramps, and it is probable that most of
the through lines pay out not less than
$25,000 apiece In attempts to keep their
lines clear of these unwelcome travel
If these men are driven off one train a
they catch onto the next that comes
along, If they ate sent to the peniten- r
tiary they serve their terms and return "
to the ro.d. No amount of beating or e
imprisonment serves to discourage k
them, and the problem of dealing with a
them is a source of continual perplex- v
ity to railway officials. s

property of the companies themselves, t
but also the peace and security of the I
sections through which they pass, I
which is practically the sautme as say- t
ing of the whole country. On this point
the opinion of an expert is available,
and is Interesting as showing how the
present lax system of policing the rail
way lines tends to keep filled the
ranks of the vagrant and criminal
classes. Mr. Josiah Flynt, who has
spent many years among tramps stu
dying their ways and habits, says:
"All tihe great railways are spending
thousands of dollars on their 'detec
tive' forces, as they call them, and
they are all overrun by mobs of ne'er
do wells and criminals. There are no
worse slums in the country than are
to be found on the railroads. Reform
ers and so i::l agit '.'s areaccustomed
to speak of the congested districts of
the large cities as the slums to which
attention should be directed, but in the
i.most congested quarters of New York
City there are no greater desperadoes
nor worse scenes of degradation than
may be met on the "iron highways" of
the United States. A number of rail
roads are recognized by vagrants and
er:minals as the stamping ground of
particular gangs that are generally
found on the lines with which their
names are connected.
"Take the Lake Shore and Michigan
Southern Railroad, for example. For
several years a mob of cutthroats and I
'hold up' men, called the 'Lake Shore I
Push,' were operating on that proper- I
ty. The hangman's noose and long
sentences to the penitentiary have I
weakened the gang and removed its I
terrors, but originally it was a strong I

e freight car refused to pay toll they
y pummelled him until he acquiesced in
a their demands, and then, if they hap
s pened to be drunk, they were as likely
as not to throw him off the train.
e Only a few of the original gang are
alive or free to-day, but it still be
s. hooves a man beating his way on the
Lake Shore to be on the lookout for
men of their stamp.
"Besides holding up tramps they also
robbed freight cars, and I doubt
whether any other gang in the country
ever brought to such perfection this
kind of thieving. The robbery gener
ally took place at night when the train
was going round a curve: Two of the
gang would board the train before the
curve was reached, carrying with them
a rope ladder which could be fastened
to the running board on the top of the
car to be robbed. One of the men
saw to it that the ladder did not slip,
and the other climbed down to the
side door of the car, broke the seal,
opened the door, and threw out on the
ground as much plunder as he thought
could be carried away, the same being
picked up later by the rest of the gang
scattered along the track. The two
men would jump off the train as soon
as it slackened its speed sufficiently
to allow them to do so, rejoin the
'push,' and help in distributing the
plunder among the 'fences' in neigh

d great number of hoboes away from
e the line by making examples of a few
of their number. The Central employs
g on its Hudson River division four de
e tectives who are empowered to make
:s arrests in any county of the State
g through which the line extends.
These men are the general officers of
. the detective force, and in the per
t, formance of their duty they are able
ii to call upon other railway employes
e who hold local commissions In the va
e rious towns along the line. Since the
f order was Issued to use more stringent

going through the yards in the dlffer
ent towns and raiding the hoboes'
camps along the railroad property with
the aid of the local police force in the
different places. Half a hundred
tramps have been arrested and sent to
jail, and a number of their established
camping spots along the line have
been broken up.
The problem of dealing with this
nuisance is a less serious one for the
Eastern roads than it is for those ol
the West. In the first place, in this
part of the country the tramps are dis
tributed over a great many lines. In
the second place, towns are closer to
gether, and it is always possible" to
turn the hoboes over to local magis
trates to be dealt with. In the West,
however, where the towns are further
apart, the question of what to do with
the hobo after he is caught is often a
grave and difficult one, and some of
the Western roads have adopted the
policy of permitting the tramps to ride
undisturbed on their freigt trains so
long as they do not interfere with the
railroad property or stea:l the cars
The tramps themselves are wil aware
as to which lines have adopted this
policy, and they are to be found in
great numbers along all these roads.
It is a well-known fact an:ong their
fraternity that the railways will not
put them off trains in passing over
the Rocky Mountains or ac:css the
Southern desert. The lines in these
sections have suffered so rmiuca: from

ver to Salt Lake City, so far as beat

that there are no less than 100,000 pro

FISHING WITH BIRD3.
The Chinaman Uses Cormorants to Cateh
His Finny Frey.
In this country the fisherman is a
man who uses hook or line or the net
in following his profession, and folks
would stare with wonder to see hirn
start off with a flock of birds to help
in catching tish. Yet this Is done in
China. There the Chinaman may be
seen In his sampan surrounded by co
morants which have been trained to
dash into the water at his order, seize
the fish and bring them to the boar.
Should a cormorant capture a fish too
large for it to carry alone one of its
companions will go to it sassistanc.,
and together they will bring it in.
If the Chinaman wishes to catch tur
tles he will do so with the aid of a
sucking fish or remora. This fish has
on top of its head a long disc or sucker
by which it attaches itself beneath
moving objects such as sharks, whales
and the bottoms of ships rather than

care to keep it from the 'ottom of the

turtle cannot loosen the grip of the

Physically, he is poorly developed, tic
says a writer in the Family Doctor. ar,
Centuries of oppression have stamped e9,
out his physical vigor, if not his vi- we
tality. The European Jew is under- thi
sised and markedly so. His mental th,
vigor, however, is unimpaired and Ev
probably on the whole is superior to to,
his neighbor's. He is a city dweller ea
and betrays an inherent dislike for pa
hard manual labor or for physical ex- ha
ercise or exertion in any form. He is co
averse to out-of-door sport. He pre- ne
fers to live by his brain rather tian by in,
his muscle. His chest capacity is lim- mI
ited and he possesses many other tea- or
tures of physical degeneracy. In fact, e
his physical make-up is what one o'c
would expect to find in a short-lived to
man. And here is a surprising fea- re
ture. Possessing so few of the ele- he
ments so long considered as necessary by
to longevity, the Jew is probably the lei
longest lived of any race of people now m
in existence. His tenacity of life is th
a remarkable. In spite of the social con- at
e ditions which surround the mass of or
the Hebrew population the world over
e and especially in the large cities of
tAmerica, where they form a large per
centage of the population, the death he
rate among the Jewish inhabitants is po
r but little over half of that of the aver- ne
age American population. Prof. Wil- by
r liam Ripley, in his papers on the ra- ga
e cial geography of Europe in the Popu- Mi
e lar Science Monthly, discusses this at'
question very ably and very fully. He re
states that if two groups of 100 infants th
oeach, one Jewish. and one of average
n American parentage, be born upon the CI
same day, one-half the Americans will
n die within forty-seven years, while the
e first half of the Jews will not succumb

seventy-one years. According to Lom- th

Ps This is not wholly true, however. They

to the excellent system of meat in- h:

Hoffman says that in London as much h
as one-third the meats offered for sale t]
