KR. CUMING'S COSTLY FROGS.
'?Id 118 Aplec? for Them In France and
Got Them at a Bargain.
A. P. Cuming, & lawyer of this city,
.vhile spending bis vacation in France
luring the past summer, bougnt three
Fogs for which he paid the high pi ice
jf $25 each. Lest the publication of uiar
[act encourage local dealers to imagine
that they may be able to work oli' uaoov
Frogs on Mr. Cuming at that fancy
price, it is well to explain that the frogs
ic bought are not considered good to
?at, that they are so small that a good
meal of them would cost several hun
Jred dollars, and that he is not passion
ately fond of that Bort of diet. These
frogs are simply good to look at. They
are only about 3yM inches long, when
fully extended, and possibly a fraction
over an inch high when sitting up to
Lake an interest in their surroundings,
or half that thickness when they llat
ten themselves out on the glass of their
nquarium home and stick there, for
hours at a time, like gobs of green mud.
Their backs and sides are of a pretty
shade of green, which changes to the
exact tint of any foliage, lighter or
darker green, upon which they place
themselves. Their bellies are white,
their throats bright yellow, their eyes
shining black, and over each eye is a
crescent of bright gold.
The variety of frogs to which they
belong has been found only in the fresh
water lagoons running into the Medi
terranean, and even there they are not
abundant nor is their capture easy.
These were bought at ITyeres, near
Toulon, and were considered a good
bargain at the price Mr. Cuming paid.
There is considerable diversitj' of color
among these found, and their value de
pends altogether upon their beauty.
Sometimes one is found darkly beauti
fully blue, and it is worth $500, that
color being exceedingly rare.
They aire very dainty little creatures.
Fresh pure water must be given to ?
them every day, and they will eat noth- ?
lug but live winged insects from which
the stings have been extracted. Mr.
Cuming has been urged to try the ef
fect upon one of giving to it a healthy
bee in working order, but refuses to do
so, fearing that the experience might
shock too gtreatly the nervous system
of his costly pets. They will not touch
bisects with hard wing1 cases, such as
( ockroaohea, and high-flavored ones?
bedbugs, for instance?are scorned by
them. And they do not know that
worms of any kind are good for frogs.
When one of the little creatures is put in
possession of a huge night moth, bigger
than itself, it begins swallowing by the
head, and neatly folding in the broad
spreading wings by dainty manipulat
ing with its hands, gradually gets the
insect down, sometimes taking as much
as half an hour in the process.
Mr. Cuming is now occupying his
leisure in educating his frogs. They
know him, perch fearlessly on his An
gers, and have learned to jump over a
trapeze, climb a rope, and do other
things that encourage him to hope for s
high development of their abilities.?

Broiled Partridge am Toast.
Partridge broiled makes & delightful
course at a luncheon served on delicate
squares of toast bread. After prepar
ing the bird with great nicety, divide
and flatten it with a meat bat, dip in
melted butter, and broil over a* clear
lire. Serve with mushrooms prepared
us follows: Take a pint of mushrooms,
and pare them neatly, removing the
stalks; as they are pared drop into wa
ter, to which has been added some
lomon juice to preserve their color.
When all are prepared take them from
! the water, drain well, and put them
into a saucepan with three ounces of
fresh butter, white pepper and salt to
taste and the juice of half a lcinon.

minutes; then sift in a dessertspoonful
I )f flour, and a very little cream ? about
? four tablespoonfuls will be sufficient;
I add a little grated nutmeg, and serve
