Pirtfes travel along onr shore setting

above salt water. These consist of a roomy
box of slats with an inconspicuous en

till they are taken ont. Other parties set
pots near t he head of the tide. These are
small editions of lobster traps in some re

is rendered still more effective sometimes
by a continuation in the shape of a stock

in so as to impale t he victfm should he poke
his head out the door. These traps are
sunk to the bottom vuJi .a line and a buoy
attached. Horseshoe crabs are considered
the best bait for eels. In the fall they
pass up into rivers and jionds, sometimes
in great numbers, and avrays in the dark

are always found just as soon as ice forms.
Strangely enough it is said to be a ledge,
Cy quick work a bushel is sometimes
speared out in a few minutes. Spearing is
to me the most satisfactory method of fish

Ushering repairs to the river, if in tide

ued. Ia tLe winter the ice is cut in a
semicircle, then with one clip the project

Now the podding begins. The spear is
jabbed in the mud gently; if it meets re

yanks it out like lightning and shakes the
wipgler off on the ice. Sometimes three
or four come cut at once.
Very often in this vicinity, ntwr the

He Wit a Lurky Reporter.
Reporters sometimes rejort speeches
they do not hear, and Imd work they make
of it. An enthusiastic Irishman was once
hoaxed by a wag into reporting a speech in
parliament by Edmund Burke on the mer
its of the potato as an article of diet. The
was repeated the speech apparently from
his notes, and the reporter, never doubting
hie cood faith, banded in a report. The
next morning all London was laughing
over the speech, which made Mr. Burke at
tribute the superior virtue of the Irish peo
ple to the fact that they eat so many pota
toes. Another reporter fared better who made
up a speech from his own imagination. It
was a bold act, for the speech was from
the throne, George III being the monarch.
The ministers were indignant at his im
pudence, and were eager to punish him
with the severest penalties of the law.
But the good i) at u red monarch interposed,
with a quiet joke at the expense of the
minister who bad prepared the speech read
by the king. "I hope the man's punish
ment will be of the mildest sort," said
King George, "because I have read both,
and so far as I can understand either of
them, I like the reporter's speech better
than my own." New York World.

A New Bleaching- Agent.
Dr. Ludwig Schreiner, of Stuttgart, has
brought forward a new bleaching agent
which he calls ozonin. It Is prepared by
dissolving 22 parts of hydrate of potath in
VX4 parts of water, to which 125 parts of
resin are added after boiling the solution.
To this mixture are added first 150 parts
oil of turpentine, and then 12C parts per
oxide of hydrogen. The product thus ob
tained is ozouiu, a bleaching agent more
powerful than either turpentine or perox
ide of hydrogen alone. Dr. Schreiner
says that a solution of one part of ozonin
in 1,000 parts of water will form power
ful textile bleach, and that the solution
also has disinfecting and antiseptic proper
ties of value. Bostou Transcript.
