Only a woman blessed with a clear
olive complexion, superimposed on a
rich xed, and a dark, lustrous eye, like
Mrs. Phil Lydig, would dare to present
the bold contrast she does in carrying
a peacock feather fan. A woman of
fair complexion would look positively
palid if she dared bring the iridescent
colors in contrast with her face, but
the former Mrs. Stokes can do it safely
and to advantage. He collection of

they are of historical as well as intrin

Christiania, Norway, March 31.The
winter fisheries, and especially the cod
fisheries, have for generations been of
the greatest importance to Norway. I
later years they have not come up to
the mark, however, and this season will
hardly reach the average. The weather,
so long unfavorable, has improved of
late, the catch of the last week has
been very satisfactory, and the pros
pects are favorable. Tn catch of last
we ek was 7,000,000 cod.
The total catch up to date is about
seventeen and three-quarter millions,
including the Pinmarken winter fish
eries. This is about 2,000,000 more than
last year, but 3,000,000 less than in
1902. About 30,000,000 is considered a
fair average at the end of March, and
there is much to be made up before
that average is reached, so much in
deed, that it may be taken for granted
that it cannot be done.
According to official statistics 14,164
hectoliters of steamed fish oil have
been produced, while 4,146 hectoliters
V$SK Sv r.
liver havr been set aside for inferior
grades of oil. Of roe there has been
produced 25.163 hectoliters. This by
product of the cod is gaining in impor
tance every season, as the French sar
dines fisheries seem to be entirely de
pendent on the Bupply of cod roe as the
best bait. The French are getting so
anxious about cod roe that they send
representatives to the Lofoten districts
and purchase it direct from the fisher
The catch in Lofoten was 4,000,000
cod last week, a result surprisingly
The prices now paid in Lofoten are
$6 to $8 per 100 fish, and $7 to $9 per
hectoliter liver. ^.Thej^ have beeng^pro

was about 1,000,000. The codfisheries

day was showered with'laurels by the
king of Norway, and who but for his
exceeding liberality, would have died

of inventing one of the jnost deadly
weapons of modern warfare.
Christian Bergh was a masor in the
army of the king of Norway, serving as

country. I was then that his in

In Sussex, England, there is a town
called Pagham or Pagehatn, and the
first to bear the name Page is said to
have been that Hugo Pagham who
was sent by Edward, i a 1257, with dis
patches to the King of Spain. Perhaps
because he was a messenger of the
king he was called Page, or the name
was evolved from that of the town.m
which he lived, and this, in turn, w$s_
a name derived from the Latin pagus,
a village, or the country. Or it may

The location known as Eosewell, in
Gloucester county, Virginia, was set
tied by Colonel Page's son, Matthew,
about 1700. The present Kosewelbman
sion was built about 1725 by Matthew's
son, Mann Page, who inherited a- vast
landed estate. For many years Rose
well was the largest and most costly
house in the old dominion. The marble
casements were imported, the polished.
mahogany carved by hand, and the ap
pointments of almost regal Bplendor.
The place remained in the Page family
