In the warm waters of tire Indian Ocean a strange marine is found that has given rise to many curious rales among the natives of the coast there about. They tell of a wonderful sail often seen in the calm seasons preced ing the terrible hurricanes that course over those waters. Not a breath then disturbs the water, the sea rises and falls like a vast sheet of glas?; suddenly the sail appears, glistening with rich purple and golden hues and seemingly driven along by a mighty wind. On it comes, quivering and sparkling as if bedecked with gem&, but only to disappear as if by magic. Many travelers had heard with unbe lief the strange tale; but one day the phantom craft actually appeared to the crew of an Indian steamer, and as it passed by under the stern of tho vessel, the queer "sail" was seen to belong to a gigantic sword-fish, now known as the sailor-fish. Tho sail was really an enormously developed dorsal fin that was over ten feet high, and was richly colored with blue and iridescent tints; and as the fish swam along on or near the surface of. the water, this great fin naturally waved touaud fro, so that from a distance it csvlil easily be mbtahen Tor a curi ous sail. Some of these sword-fish attain a, length of over twenty feet and have large, crescent shaped tan's, and long. swordlike c snouts, capable of doing great damage. In the Mediterranean Sea, a sword fish is found that also has a high fin, but it does not equal the great sword fish of the Indian Ocean. C. F. Holder, in. NicluAas. Amherst college sets a good exam ple to other colleges by not encourag ing extravagance. The statistics show that "the last graduating class of Amherst college during its college course about 200,000. The average yearly expenditure per man $682. The average yearly expenditure per man freshman year was $625; sopho more year 9640; junior 3790. The greatest total expenditure of any one member of the class was $3,650; for one year SI, 800. The least total ex penditure of any one member was 875; for one )-ear 8150. The aver age price paid lor ooara was 4 a week. The average highest price was $525; average lowest, $375. One man boarded himself at $1, one at $2, several as low as $4. The highest price paid was $7." As a rule the young men wno expena me most money in college have the least to show in literary and scientific attain ments. Leavenworth Standard. POKING FUN AT WICHITA. The story about Jay Gould intend- ing to remove nis itew iont oniee io Wichita and occupy part of Marsh Murdock's private office is said to bo without serious foundation. Jay Gould said in Kansas City that it was not to the interest of his road in the west to buiKl up local towns but that he proposed to concentrate his railroad management as much as possible in Kansas Citv. It is now in order for the WTichita Eagle to spread its broad wings and scream, it is possible that Marsh Murdock ha been played upon by the artful and craftv Jay. Perish the thought! The decision of Jay Gould to re move Lis railroad headquarters from St. Louis to Kansas City and build up the latter place causes the Wichita afetolook wild. With great re uctance that paper is giving to its readers some confidential communi cations made to Mr. Murdock by Mr. Gould. As a confidential communi cator Mr. Goald has few rivals and no superiors. That beautiful story about George Gould and wife going to live at Wichita is a dai)'?; Wipfold Telegram. '
