Up on Kankakee,close by the water's edg,
stands a tree on which "blazed" with a
bunting knife the letter C This is in
commemoration of an adventure that
Judge Cox, of the criminal court, had
there not so many, many years ago. The
Judge and some friends were up there fish
ing. One evening when they were out in
separate boats a storm came up. It was
quite a storm, too, even for a larger stream
than the muddy Kankakee. The river was
whipped into foam and great waves rolled.
The frail little boats tossed and tumbled,
and gave every evidence of capsizing, for
they were not built to ride such heavy seas.
Tbe craft in which Judge Cox waa Beated
was particularly frLsky, and the judge be
came pale as be thought of a watery grave
Lake a skillful mariner, however, he
made for tbe shore and ran his boat against
a tree. Carefully he crawled to the bow,
and raising to bis feet, threw bis arms
around the tree Aid bung on for dear

tree in lona emorace. i ne waters oecame

One of his companions noticing him, ex
claimed: "Why don't you let go. Judge? Tbe
storm is over."
"That's all right," rponded the judge.
"Another one is liable to come up, and I
know when I've got a good thing."
That is why this particular tree was
marked with Judge Cox's initial. Indi

l.obrtter Hunt in New Kngluml.
During the summer months seaside
visitors on our New Englaud coast organ
ized "klMir bunts," which are usually
very pleasant affairs. Two boats carry a
party of five or six to the lobster grounds
where the guide tells them "lobs" are to
lie found. In addition to tbe nets and
baskets, a large boiler is brought along.
On some prominent rock which overlooks
the lobster grounds, they build a lire, and
securely fasten tbe lmiler in some crevice
just over tbe flame. Clear spring water is
poured into the boiler, which soon lie-gins
to sputter and hiss as the fire burns up
brightly. When a dozen or more lobsters
have been caught, they are brought to the
rock and dumped into the boiling water.
There is a brief struggle for life, a scratch
ing noise in the Ixiiler, and then all is quiet
Some crackers and cheese are meanwhile
produced, and a circle is formed around
the fire and tbe boiling lobsters. Ti,e light
of the moon casts pale weird shadows on
the dark rocks, while the sea waves sing
and dance monotonously In-low. When
the cover of the boiler is finally removed
the Ix-autiful green of the shells has taken
on a bright red. The shells are easily
broken, ami as soon as the meat has cooled
sufficiently each memlicr of the party se

Typewriters in some of the down town
offices are learning a trick of trade that
promises to fill many a spare moment with
profit. The typewriting business is a vari
able one. There are many hours in it that
are whollv idle, when time hangs. On
busy days, on tbe other hand, callers are
frequently turned away, so great is the
rush of business. It happens in the ma
jority of cases that men are not in so much
of n hurry for typewritten copy as t hey are
to dictate what they have in mind and be
rid of it. They can wait a few hours or a
(lay or more for tbe copy when once it is
practically disposed of by dictation. Here
in ilies the office of the phonograph. A
caller, finding the typewriter occupied, can
step into a corner and talk at a phono
graph what be wants to say.
The operator takes out the sheet and lays
it away for a leisure moment. When thnt
arrives the phonograph repeals the dicta
tion at a speed easily regulated. The de
vice saves time to the one dictating, for
the phonograph will take speech as fast as
it can lie uttered. It serves also to give
the typewriter's occupation in hours that
would tie otherwise idle, and no business
need now lie turned away. Those who are
employing ilie device find that it works
very well. New York Times.
