coast, especially affecting tbu gulf of
California:. This huge creature is

il J, really. a rorqnal of medium size and

ice Yankee whalemen, dexterous and

It is a vcculiar characteristic of this
Snimal tbat it seems ever on tbe alert,
scarcely exposing for one moment its
broad back above tbe sea surface when
rising to spout acdfeneral!y traveling,
nnlikeall its congeners, not upon, but
a. few feet below, tbe water. For this
reason, and in this fishery' alone, tbe
whalers arm themselves with iron
shafted harpoons, in order to stiike with
greater force and certainty of direction
a whale some distance beneath the sur
face. A standing order, too, among
them is never by any cbanco to injures
calf while tbe mother lives, since snch
an act exposes all and sundry near the
spot to imminent and violent death.
Neglect of this most necessary precau
tion, or xnoro probably accident, once
brooch t abent a calamity tbat befell a
fleet of 13 American wbalcships which
bad been engaged in the"howhead'
fishery among tbo ice floes of tbe Arctio
Pacific. Ia order to waste no time tbey
came soctb when winter set in, and by
common consent rendezvoused in .Mar

month cr two's "devil fishing."
The whales wero exceedingly abun
dant tbat season, and all tbe ships were
socn busy with as mucb blubber as tbey
could manage. The ease with which the
whales were being obtained, however,
led to considerable carelessness and for
getfulness of tbe fact that the whale
never changes its habits. . One bright
morning, about three weeks after the
opening of tbo season, tho whole flotilla
of S3 boats, fonr from ench ship, had
been lowered and were making their
way as rapidly as possible to tho outly
ing parts of tbe great bay, keeping a
bright lookout for "fish."
Spreading out fanwise, tbey were get
ting more and more ecattered, when
abont near tbe center of the fleet some
cne suddenly "struck" and got fast to a
Csb, bet hardly bad tbe intimation been
given when something very like panic
seized upon tbe crowd. In a moment or
two the reason was apparent. - From
some causo, never definitely known, a
barpooner had in striking a large cow
whale transfixed her calf at her side
with his harpoon, killing it immediate
ly. Tho mother, having quietly satisfied
herself tbat her offspring was really
dead, turned upon her aggressors like' a
veritable demon of destruction, and
while carefully avoiding exposure of her
body to attack simply spread devasta
tion among the llotilla. Whenever she
rose to the snrface. it was but for a sec

Utter demoralization had seized .even
the veterans, and escape was tbe only
thought governing all action. But tbe
distance to shore was great, and tbe

"In one of his trritings Wagner tell
us tbat be never felt any mnsical in

writes Houston Stewart Chamberlain
on "Heir Richard Wacrxer Wrote Hia

of a sodden, in tbe daskof evening, one
of these' creatares of his fancy would
rise up before hini, gazing at him with

trembling, Wagner would remain with
eyes fixed on those of his guest from
dreamland. But. lo, the shadow's lips
tremble f.nd open! What issues fiom

"This, then, is the essential -thing to

poetical and dramatio idea clearly and

Of tbat mad but heroio charge a bun
dred incidents are preserved thrilling,

Tho regimental butcher of tbo Seven
teentb lancers was engaged ia killing a
sheep when bo heard the trumpets sound
for tbe charge. He leaped ou a borso.
In shirt sleeves, with bare arms and
pipe in mouth, he rode through the whole
charge, slew, it is said, six men with
his own hand, and came back again.
pipe still in mouthl
A private of the Eleventh was nnder
arrest for drnukeuness when the charge
began, bus be broke out, followed his
troop on a spare hcrso, picked np
sword as be rode, and shared in the
rapture and perils of tbe charge. Tho
charge lasted 20 minutes, and was ever
before such daring or such suffering
packed into a space so brief? The squad
rons rode into tbe fight numbering 673
hoisenreu ; their mounted strength when
the fight was over was exactly 195.
It was all u blunder, but it evoked a
heroism which made the blunder itself
magnificent. And as long as brave deeds
can thrill tbe imagination of men the

The Romans were tbe first people to
practice plowing between tbe rows of
wheat as we do between corn. The idea
was suggested in a singular manner. A
warlike tribe, having ravished a section
of land at the base of the Alps, under
took to destroy tbe growing crops by
plowing them up, but instead it was
found that the rows accidentally hilled
were twice as large as those tbat were
not. The harrow or hoe used by tbe
Chinese farmer .is of tbe rudest con
strnction. Tbe plow is usually drawn
by women oi tne lowest classes.
Two hundred and - fifty years ago,
when tbe corn stolen from tbe Indians
by our Puritan ancestors was planted in
the sand of Capo Cod, the only instru
ment used was a ponderous and ill
shaped Dutch hoe, which required a
heavy man to handle at all. Our first
processes were not much in advance of
those of tbe barbarians of central Eu

The moEt nsnal food cf the ico bear.
as the Germans very appropriately call
this beast, is the common seal of the
arctio regions. Tho latter is the wari
est animal of the north, aud both Eski
mo and polar bear need their best strut
ecy to catch it
In the summer time, when tbe snow
is off tbe ice of the ocean shore and
islets, the seals can be plainly seen as
black dots on tbe ice, probably asleep,
but always near their holes, which lead
down through the thick ico to tho water
below, and into which they can threw
themselves by the least movement

very quiet and as still as death itself.

really a corner of each is kept open, and

him for a heap of snow, an appearance
which his coat readily helps him to as
During tho naps he creeps forward
with greater or less rapidity, according
to his nearness to tbe seal and conse
quent fear of being heard or seen.
When but 10 or 12 yards away, and the
seal is in tho depths of a good nap, the
bear rushes upon him and with a single
blow of hia powerful paw knocks the
smaller brute senseless and so far away
from the holo that he cannot eseapo by
that way, even if the blow received is
not immediately fatal.
In winter time the ice is covered with
snow, and this is hollowed out by the
seal into a suowbouse, coverihg'tho hole
in tho ice and connecting at tbo' top of
tbe dome with an aperture about tbe
sizo of a shilling, called tbe blowhole,
for it is through this that tho seal
breathes when be is in want of fresh firr;'
Here the bear watches for many a
long hour if necessary, and when the
snorts of the 6eal are heard he crushes
in tho fragile dome of the Bnowhouse
with his paw, impaling tbo neal on bis
curved claws, and proceeds to practi
cally demonstrate how polar bears can
