The gentle oyster ha been a great suf
ferer from the recent terrible commotion
of wind and wave, and hundreds of small
oyster planters in the vicinity of Nen
York City bare been ruined. Large
planters and dealers bare also suffered
heavy losses. It is estimated that to
supply the oyster market of New York
City at least one thousand oyster boats
are scattered along the Sound, the bay,
and all the creeks and inlets on Long
Island shore, and they were naturally un
able to do anything last week. Tbedam
age at Jamaica Bny.Rockaway, and in the
Sound will, according to an exchange be
The oyster is a creature in whore wel

been called the hardiest person in the
universe. lie is of a peculiar disposi

Is hot sociable, lie i reserved, gloomy
and peculiar. lie may have a giant in
tellect; but nobody is the wiser for it.
He is neither human nor divine. He is
not a Ann, for be has no Ons, tail, gills or
disposition to steal the bait off a hook
He is not a bird, for he has neither
feathers, wings, or song. He is not a
quadruped, for be has not the essential
qualification of legs or lungs. There are
a great many things that the ovster is

Interesting subject in the following man
There are many things for which the
oyster is remarkable; but he is remarks
bie above all other tbines for his scarcity
In church festival oyster soup. Nothing
ran exceed me loon or astonishment that
mantles the face of a man when he finds
an oyster in a dish of church soup. He
can't account for it. Sometimes they get
into the soup by mistake. Nobody ought
to blame tbem for this.
When there is a church oyster supper,
the local papers come out next week and
say that the ladies took in i.'iU and
cleared f 47.75. That's the reason oysters
ion t nave much to tlo with the affair.
The oyster does not confine bis re
ligious belief to any particular dogma.
He loins in with the Methodists, Presby
terians, CongregitionalisU and all the
rest, with a desire to do good, unblinded
by prejudice. He Is most probably a
hard-shell Baptist. His aquatic habits
i'o to prove in is.
Many a poor society, after exhausting
Its ruois and almost deciding to ruin the
miuister and clean him out of house and
home by giving him a donation party. has
suddenly bethought itself of the oyster.
Ho they got one and chased him around
in a barrel of hot water until he sets sick
and dies. Then they sell the water for
twenty- rive cents a pint.
One of the best points about the oyster
i nis facility of keepinc his mouth shut.
Through all bis wrongs and reverses of
fortune, be never complains. He leaves
his revenge for the future. It is no fool
of a job for bim to keep bis mouth shut.
He is built in a circle, and there Is a
mouth all around the edge of him. When
he opens his mouth he has to split bim
self in two. It has often been asked,
"Who first invented or discovered the
oysterT This would remain a mystery
if it were not for us.- We are the only
human being that knows.
Once, something less than a hundred
thousand years ago, a little brother of
Hasan B. Anthony's was roaming about
on the shore of the sea, thinking of his
sins and one thing and another, when be
happened to recollect that he bad a quart
of hickory nuts in bis coat tail pocket.
He yearned to transfer the succulent ker
nels of those nuts from thir brittle shells
to bis stomach, and he cast about him for a
tone. He found a large flat one to serve
as an anvil, and a little mossy one to
serve as a hammer. He was astounded
beyond measure to witness the little green
stone gape upon the very first clip he
fetched the nut. He was yet more sur
prised to notice that the mysterious stone
grappled hold of his finger, and pinched
it unmercifully. He hauled his finger
out of chancery, and proceeded to suck
it, as is the manner of mankind when
they get their fingers pinched. All bis
previous succession of surprise! were as
nothing compared with his amazement at
finding how deliciously bis finger tasted.
fl fell to and cracked the stone (or oys-M-r
M u pt...1 to lH1.) instead of the
hickory nut. anil devoured im n,,.,. ..
Then he threw away his hickory nuts anil
hunted up more oysters, and (ell to and
devoured them, then he went home
and told Ben Butler and Mrs. Jenks and
his other neighbors, and they all went
down to the shore and hunted for oys
ters. Ben injured hi eyes by peering
uncier me rocks, and he has ever since
been known as "Old Cockeye."
Susan's brother continued to eat oys
ters till he got so fat he couldn't see his
own legs. Ho finally died full of years
and honors and oysters, and they buried
him in an oyster pit, and paved bis grave
wim oyster shells.
The above is all we know about oys
ters and more, too.

In the circuit court yesterday afternoon
City Attorney J. L. Haas entered a
motion for a new trial in the case of John
McDsrrab vs. the city of Itock Island in
which a verdict was twice returned for
the plaintiff. The council at lU last
meeting manifested a disposition to set
tle the case, but Mr. Haas made his
motion in accordance with a recent su
preme court decision which permits the
city attorney to use his own discretion
irrespective of the council's position,
where in bis judgment contrary action on
bis part would be for the best interest of
the city. The case, however, will prob
ably be settled, nevertheless.

is no necessity for a county fair, and
