GOSLINGS AS FISH BAIT.
Remarkable' Experience of a St. Louis
Sportsman-How to Catch Baaa.
A letter from a St Louis gentleman, who
has been for some time un at Green Lake.
Wis., has just been received hero, and it con
tains the account of a fishing exploit that is
remarkable. "1 wenjt out early the other
evening," wries tne gentleman, "in the
hopes of encountering some of the famous
pickerel of this resort when they were just
coming up from their mossy beds after a
morsel for breakfast. I trolled for half a
mile without a strike. I was passing a farm
house, in front of which were an old goose
aud a lot of goslings a month or so old. They
were swimming around, dipping down under
the water, and chattering away in high glee.
Just as I was opposite them there was a
splash and one of the goslings disap
peared. Almost instantly another one
went in the same way, the mother
goose never seeming to heed their
absence. I thought it strange, and pulled
over toward the flock, but before I reached
them three more were nulled under the
water. I stopped rowing close to the spot
where the fowls had disappeared, and
watched from close range to see if I could
discover what agent was at work destroying
the farmer's goslings. One of the little fel
lows was separated from the other three, for
that's all that were left I was close to the
single gosling, watching him, when I saw a
monstrous black bass shoot through the wa
ter, grab the bird I had my eye on, and give
the water a flirt with his tail as he disap
peared with his breakfast Before the sur
face had become calm or my astonishment
had been overcome, the remaining three of
the gosling brood were in the capacious maws
of the hungry bass.
"By this time tho old goose, who had been
tranquilly swimming about, began to think
that something was wrong, and when no
lttle ones came at her call she became
frantic I stood right there for some timo,
expecting that some audacious bass would
walk off with the old goose, but they didn't
"i went up to the farm bouse, told the fate
of the goslings, and was met with no expres
sions of surprise.
'1 hat s no uncommon thing,' said the far
mer. 1 11 bet I ve lost a thousand young
geese just in that way. I thought those were
too big for bass bait I keep my young geese
in a pond back of the house until they get
big enough to take care of themselves, as I
thought the ones yon saw gobbled up were.'
"An idea struck me, aud I bargained with
the farmer for three goslings from the pond
back of the house. I would fool the bass.
He soon came in with three nice, downy little
fellows, and I took one, tied my line about
tho center of his body, and fastened a gang
of hooks under the goslings's breast so they
huug down atiout three inches. Then I took
a long ml from the boat, attached the line
and gently dropped the swimming bait into
tho water. The little gosling swam around
for about half a minute, when thero was a
rush, a tug at tho line, and I had iny hungry
fish safely hooked. It was a whopjier, ami it
took mo twenty minutes to bring him up to
the boat Tho bass had struck the hooks, as
I intended, liefore bo reached the gosling,
and 1 succeeded in landing thirty-one biz
bass with my three before they were used up.
They were the biggest bass I ever saw be
fore, averaging a trifle over six pounds
apiece, one of them weighing nine and a
quarter pounds. When I go after bass now
you may lie sure I go with goslings for bait."

Shopping Manners in Paris.
Mark Twain is not the onlv American who
has boon disgusted with the pushing, the
scrambling, the incivility of the whole mob
at the great French shops, buyers as well as
sellers, counter jumpers as well as purchas
ers. The crowd at the Louvre, the Bon
Marche or the Priutemps, on any fine after
noon, is something that must bo seen to be
believed. Tho manners that prevail! Cus
tomers dispute the ownership of various
things bv pulling them out of each others'
hands; toes trodden on; inspectors eye im
pertinently young and old to discover thieves;
then tho elbow digs, the flushed faces, the
torn clothing! Finally comes the push of the
people up to tho pay desk, in a lino, like pigs
to the slaughter house. Your purchases have
been taken from you to bo tied up.
Mistakes niLst bo frequent 111 this depart
ment A list of articles is read out by a per

Now you may go or stay; no one heeds you
further. Perhaps you will feel disposed to

salon do lecture of the establishment and read
the morning papers. Unfortunately it is
crowded, like every other place on the prem
ises. Tho reading rooms of the great French
shops are beginning to figure in the works of
the contemporaneous French novelists as a
convenient place of illicit rendezvous. A
glance around one of them often shows
couples of fact, not fiction, whose demeanor
favors the supposition that they have met by
appointment and not "by chance." Olive

The Valuo of Good Ink.
The health department of New York city
calls attention to the fact that a large pro
portion of records of births, marriages and
deaths received for filing are written in ani
line inks, which will become illegible in a
few years. As tho originals are now fl'ed as
received, certificates written In these fugitive
inks will liecome sheets of blank pajer in
eight or ten years, and valuable records will
then be lost It is said nt the office of the
registrar of vital statistics that ministers are
moro careless in making certificates of mar
riages than the doctors in reporting births or
deaths. On many occasions the blanks have
been filled in with a pencil aud had to be re
turned to bo written in ink. Ministers are
also partial to colored inks, unmindful,
doubtless, that tho ink will fado away in a
Deputy County Clerk Gilroy said that
many of the papers filed in the county
clerk's office were written with poor ink, but
as a record was made of nearly everything
filed their value was retained.
"It is a mighty good idea, however," said
Mr. Gilroy, "for the newspapers to call the
attention of the people to the nocessity of
using good black ink in executing legal and
official papers. Colored inks are no good and
were only made to suit a woman's fancy. I
have never seen any court records written
with aniline ink. I think black ink is used
in every court in the city." New York

Its Use for Kidneys.

back was very severe. My occupation
requires a good deal of writing at niyht

man who said he was cured by using

commenced usiDg it, and the pain is a

the use of a few more bottles.

Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to take
any other. Flood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue of Its pccullai
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew wh.it she wanted,
and whose example is worthy imitation, tells
her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own Instead of Hood's ; he told me their's
would last longer; that I might take it on ten
days' trial; that If I did not like It I need not
pay anything, etc. But be could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken it, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I eould hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some time, Uke a person In con
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did ma so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of It." Mrs.
