Yisha in lRussia.
In St Petersburg, Russia, the ar
rangements foir the sale of fresh-water
fish are admirable. On the principal
canals and tributary rivers flowing
through the town you will find what
Are called spdoks, or floating fish
Atores. They consist of a barge, built
tery much after the style of the toy
Noah's Ark, with a dwelling-house
constructed on the deck for the accom
modation of the fishmonger and his
family. Around this are moored sev
eral welled barges, containing all kinds
of fish from smelts to salmon, which
are brought in welled fishing-boats
direct from the fisher.les at the estuary
of the Neva and iII the Gulf of Fin
land, and also from th6 lakes of. the
north-east of Russia. Even the itInen
ant fishmonger carries the Ilshi he sells
alive In a wide, rather shallow tub fill
ed with water, which hie dexterously
balances on his head. Abthe restaur
ant establishments humianity and
aastronomy seem to unite to prolong
the lives of the tIsh to tihe latest possible
moment. In the entrance hall or ante
room -the is usually a large glass
aquar' iII which the fish swim
until t. ,anted. This eustom
of prese Oae fish in Russia has
existed fruLu ime immemorial. In the
household economy of the great boyars
of ancient Muscovy, among the fleceE
saries of the table, live and (generally
speaking) fresh fish formed a very n
portant item. The prolongel lasts, the
holiday feastings-w ic hl were coin
ducted on a grand scale as regards the
number of dishes-consumed such fl.ih
In incredible quantities. The RLussians
are distinctly good livers; they keep
no meagre nor inhospitable tables.
These banquets impressed Archdeacon
Coxe favorably in the 'eight0eentht cen
tury, and a traveller of the s!xteeInth
centu ry says he saw a fish brought to
table which it required three uten to
carry. The fish was probably a gi
gantle sturgeon. Every large house
hold of those days, in their
tolleltude for having a constant
st.pply of every kind of provision at
home, tok great uare that the live fish
th-y-r quh cd Ians not purehased fron
the fishmonger's sadoks or woeIls
at hilgh prices, but that it should be
stored in their own ponds and caught
In tihe rivers on their own estates by
their own serfs, so that iII this manner
It o ould Le obtained as it was wanted
for the table, at any tinie, aind alumost,
for nothing. With this view, on every
estate, low ever sinall, wherever the
locality was sittuate, were form ed lonlds
and wells, UId on the estates of the
grat or riih 3I iya, besides these,
wee catablisad on the ibbdi rivers
regular flsheries. We are Iold that the
gicat boyar Mon zof, w ho was a kind
of Prince Mlinister in the reign of the
Czar Alexay Aik1hallovich in the be
ginning of tie seventeenth century,
and who resided at the court, Aloscow,
had a number of usih wells tad ponds
on lis estate near AMoscow, which were
supplied with live fish fronm his estates
-1far away in the interior oft ihe counatry,
H ~where he owned a yllag~e, the inhabi
Lants 01 n bleh, instead o1 t he paymnenat
of obr oA, thne tusual tax, w ere compelled
to furnish for the boyar's use as mnuch
ish as they could catch. It ia rc
muarkanbie how conveniently situated
were Morczof's estates, From thne River
Oka, ian the Provlneet 1 Eazai, and
occasIonally fronm the Voiga,' there
was not th~e least ditlletulty in coinvey
tug live fish to hIs estates necar Moscow,
where the b( ya r had estabhlihed what
one mnight ternm his~ chief pleeteultunral
es ta blishiment. 'These fish were cartried
in specially constructed welled boats
- up the river Uka into the Mioscow
River, thence by the Istra to the vii
lage of Pavlovsky on the latter river.
The fih were usually stuirgeon,sterlet,
bream, tench, pike, cruciani carp,perch,
&c. At the presemnt day the firm 0of
Frolof-lbarge wholesale fishmongers
et Kazan and Moscow, who have owvned
extensive fisheries on the Catspian Sea

owing to their dlirect and constant
communication with their various fish
lng stations, can suppily anmy quantity
of live fish to any pairt of Rutssla wvhere
there exists rIver coin n Le iation.
T1he O.riazi-Tsaritsin Rail way Comnpainy

for conveying live fish fromi the Volga
to Moscow, each conveyaince holding

The necessity of plenty of pure water

take it at will or If supplied at stated
times it should be offered at least twice

No animal can thrive properly that has
aecess to water but once a day. Every
good feeder knows this, and hence inl
all large feeding establishments tie
greatest care Is taken to keep the sup.
ply ample and constant. Many farm
ers neglect this, and always to their
cost. If water cannot be had near in
any other way, wells should be dug,
and the water raised by wind or other
power, as the case may be. Having
plenty of water, see that the stock get
it as regularly as they feed. It will

food In the world is Indian corn; and
this valuable grain is too much neg

housekeepers know how to prepare It
acceptably. But it may be used whole,

It might be mentioned that the usual

dear as corn; potatoes four times as

"She insists that it is df more Impor-'
tance, that h6r family shall be kept in
full health, than that she should have
all the fashionable dresses and style
of the times. She therefore sees to It,
that each member of her family is sup
plied with enough Hop Bitters, at the
firat appearance of any symptoms of
ill'health, to prevent a fit of sickness
with Its attendant expense, care and
anxiety. All woman should exercise
their wisdon in this way."-New
One of the recent German inventions
consists of a new kind of cloth. which
is composed principally or enti rely of
sponge. In its manufacture the sponges
are first thoroughly beaten with 4
heavy hammer, in order to crush all
the mlneral and vegetable Impuiti'es,
so that they can be easily washed out;
they are then dried and parea with a
sharp knife, the paring being sewed
together. The fabric which is thus
obtained is described as being free
from all the danger which sometimes
arises from the absorption of poisonous
dyes into the system; it absorbs with
out checking the perspiration, so as to
diminish the danger of getting cold; it
is a conductor, and therefore helps to
maintain a uniform surface teimpera*
ture; It can be more readily cleansed
than ordinary w.oolen garments; its
flexibility decreases the liability of
chafing; and the ease with which it
can be employed in shoes, stockings,
drawers, undershirts and other articles
of clothing, will, it thought, render
the new material especially uneful as a
proteotloir against rheumatic and( pul

Ing by electricity be looked upon with
no more Wonder or amazement than
the present mode of talking and send
off the human voice hundreds of miles,
and that instantaneously, by means of
the telephone. In fact, the former has
actually been accomplished, and the
inventor asserts that the electric c-ir
rent takes up and transmits the features
ofi a person, a landscape or writing, as
it does modulations of sound, and Is
confident that when his invention shall
have been perfected, it will be an easy
matter to take the photograph of a
person or landscape, though they are
hundreds of miles distant. We shall
await anxiously for further develop,
ments of this invention.
In Brazil, large quantities of the best

"VoV.rINE," says a Boston phi st
clan, "has no equal as a blood purifier.
Hearing of its many wonderful cures,
after all other remedies had failed, I
visited the labbratory and convinced
myself of its genuine merit. It is pre
pared from barks, roots, and herbs,
each of which is highly efl'ective, and
they are compounded In such a manner
as to produce astonishing results."
A novel method for taking up and
putting off passengers without the
stopping of trains, is proposed by M.
Ifarenz, of Paris, and a railway of that

ls providled at every stationl into which
passeng~ers gather before flhe arrival of
the train. As the traini passes the
station the rear car, whuich contains
onmly passengers for such statlin, is cut
loose and side-tracked, while the wvait

a aimple device and is coupled on, to
