Tbe llrst experiment in Introducing chad on th Pacifla coast was made less than twenty years ago, anil ten years ajjo there were no shud Holier its, on that coast. The work of propagation watt continued and the fisheries have now become well established. The figures show that in lSiKJ the shad taken in Cnl fornia numbered 626,404, being five times as many as in Connecticut and al most us many as in South Carolina, The take in the Columbia River the same year was 312,350. It is thought this fishery will still increase. A curious temperance society exists in the Siberian village of Ashlyka. Every year in September the members meet in the church and make a solemn promise to abstain from wine and spirits for a whole year. They also sign hn agreement that any person breaking the pledge shall pay a fine of 25 rnblos to the churoh and submit to be spat upon by his more continent fel lows. The most peculiar feature of the whole business, however, is that the members on the one day of the year when the pledge expires allow them selves wine and brandy during the few hours which intervene before the pledge for the ensuing year is made. In London county, Virginia is one of the largest fruit farms in the country. It contains 60,000 vines, 45,000 peach trees-, 8,000 quince and pear trees, and several .hundred English walnut aud Italian chestnut trees. The enterprise began as the experiment of two brothers wno ueiievea inai ino jNortnern Vir J!cinia country was admirably suited to the growing of fruits. They first bought 500 acres of land on Loudoun Heights and the first season planted a peach orchard. This was in 188". Since that time they have increased their holdings steadily, and their fruit farm promises to rival the largest ranch on the Pacific coast. Some people in Sew Haven could learn something from what has hap pened in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Mayor Bancroft who reoently made a feeble effort to stop the sale of soda water and the delivery of ice oream on Sunday, has finally dropped the proseoutions. The effort to suppress Sunday soda was made at the request of u number of clergymen who passed reso. lutions upon the. subject. Several prose- ' tuitions were undertaken under an old statute, but public ssntiment did not sustain mioli petty business, and the mayor wns riuil to desist. Tbe druggists 'bad a rijib .ii keep their stores open under in. of 1887, and It was diffl uult to prom that they sold anything bat medicine aud surgeons' appliances. Ho one was disposed to play the spy on toe soda water fountains. An attempt to prosecute a caterer for delivering ice oreara on Sunday fell fiat, as the judge before whom the case tvas brought found no law to sustain the arrest. The Socialistic Kingdom pertinently aajig ror missionaries to tne upper lftses. It says : " Humanitarians Abound on all sides who are devoted to the problems of the lower classes. Missionaries are sent to them, and the continued iry from press and the pul pit is. What can be done for the poor ? Why does not some philanthropist, some John Howard or Florenoe Nightingale, tart a movement to help the submerged millionaires They have been ne fleoted, the upper classes have been neglected, till they have been well-nigh wronged out of life. If -wo see a horse over-driven, we are moved to pity.

The captain of the com pany ordered his men out for target practice one Sunday.Prlvate Cedarquest refused to go on the ground that his conscience would no permit him to do it, and that the army regulations limited all Sunday work to matters of strict necesfilty. For this refusal he was tried by military court martial, found guilty and sentenced to be confined at hard labor for six months, and to for feit $10 per month of his pay during that period. The decision says: That a commanding officer has a discretion under cximing orders to require target practice by his command on Sunday in case of necessity is undoubted. The evidence in this cus falls to fix upon the commanding olllcer any abuse of dis cretion in the Issue of the order com plained of by the accused. The legality of that order and the obligation of the accused to obey it when duly trans mitted to him cannot be questioned. It whs not for him to Judge of the necessi ty for the Issuance of the order. The discretion pertained to his commanding officer as to whether one existed, and, whether erroneously or not. It was the duty of the accused to obey. Tbe occa sion is deemed opportune for Inviting the attention of the department to the fact that the obligations of military service will never permit a soldier to refuse obedieuce to an order because In his Judgment It is unnecessary. Thus has military discipline been up held and a conscientious man made to understand the difference between the law of God and the law of .men. But many will think that the officer who ordered the target shooting on Sunday was decidedly in the wrong. Target practice is necesary for soldiers, but It may fairly be doubted that it was so necessary in this case as to consist with the army regulations and make advisable the raising of such a ques tion as that raised by Private Cedar quest. . In army circles, however, Pri vate Cedarquest is perhaps looked on as a crank and as having a conscience un worthy the consideration of a well trained military officer. WOMElf 'IX HE A ri'A'. It is. queer that just at this time when the whole worm appears o oe filled with the power and the glory cf women a Brcok'yn p'-eachir should feel called upon to raise a harrowing doubt conoernlng the presence, the power and the glory of women in heaven. He is reported as thus preaching: Did you ever reau the Bible of a woman be ing in heaven? I don't believe there is a woman there now, or ever shall be. They will go DacK to tneir original state whence they were taken by the Creator. When Christ said that there were no marriages In heaven, but all should be as the angels, I believe he meant that there were no such creat ures as women In that world of bless edness and song. , Women are made for the glory n111 nd man for tne glory of God. We know that the Bible doesn't say much about the presence of women in heaven and we know that it has been argued that there are no women in heaven because, there has been silence there for the space of half an. hour. But this argument, though forcible, is by no means conclusive, nor Is the belief that has been held by many wise people that women have no souls to save anything more than a belief. Some o the great religions of the earth, like the Mohammedan, allow women a place in heaven that is not entirely dignified and respectable. The Christian religion has at times made It rather uncomfortable for women on earth, but It has been generous to them in promise of heavenly rewards. At least that has been the general under standing. But now comes a professor and a teaoher of that religion saying that women instead of going to heaven will go back into1 their original slate whence they were taken by the Creator And he magnanimously adds that wo men are made for the glory of men and men for the. glory of God. Of course there is little profit In dis puting with a man who knows as much about women and heaven as this Brook lyn preacher does. But if he is right, things are greatly awry nowadays. Men don't seem to be aware that they were made for the glory of God, and it is dangerous to tell women that they are. made for the glory of men. They know better, or think they do, which amounts to the same thing. The Brook lyn preacher has not been wise. He will be asked by some woman how he knows, if jthereja .nothing in the Bible about women in heaven, whether they are there or, not -And he will be told that it was not. thought necessary to say anything in, the bible about this matter, as everybody would know with out being told that heaven is the place for women, and that women naturally MAtenieA tintta'& poj ceeds It may be seriously argued that men are lower than nngels and will stay so unless they can be changed Into women. And In spite of the respect women have for preachers they may decide that a preacher who can talk so about them will never have the blessed privilege of being a woman even If he repents and seeks to become one.

Calmly-Flowing Days Where Hurry It Unknown Views of an American Wri ter who has Keaided There Long Enough to Absorb a Philosophic Way ef Look ing at Things. (From the Boston Herald,) All the philosophers, from Diogenes to Emerson, have pointed out that the way to be happy is to be content with little. Theoretically we all prove the dicta of the men of thought, . but as our modern civilizaton is founded on the principle of complexity of life rath er than on its simplification, we go on our way forever striving to obtain that which is of little use to us when se cured, and vasty discontented during the period of non-attainment I have frequently said that south ,of the Kio Grande one finds a whole na tion of philosophers, on the whole the most contented, tranquil people' on the face of the globe. There is a great peace pervading this pleasant and sun ny land. You note the change immediately that you cross : the boundary river from bustling, ener getic Texaslnto dreamy, happy Mexi co. If, as we must believe, the acme of human felicity Is attained when one has arrived at perfect content of spir it, then we must admit that the. Mex ican people are as near to the realisa tion of the dream of Howella and Bel lamy as may be imagined. True, there are sharp divisional lines of east here, and in this Mexico is not . what the Altrurlan traveler has imagined or what Bellamy has dreamed;, but the Mexicans have reached the results im agined by those authors, without mak ing use of their leveling communistic theories. The separation ef a nation; into testes tends to contentment. Born a peon, you expect so to remain, and, not be ing ambitious, you are happy in being simply what you are. and you. have no notion of trying to be a caballero. pr gentleman. The servant J8 a servant and will be nothing else, and nJoys being a. servant in a calm, unruffled way that delights one to witness. I have had servants say to me that. when they died, they hoped to be re lieved from the necessity of waiting on other people, and to be allowed to ret forever; but said this without the least mental irritation, and as if expressing a desire ror something only to be at tained in the dim future, for none of us nas any present thought of. going out or this lite to which we ajre SO well ac- cusiomea. ' I. thing for nation to have ita philoso phy of lite ready made and conforma ble to the national genius. All Mexl cana, with only here and there an ex ception, are Catholic, a large majori ty far from being enlightened members of that ancient communion, but all good believer, and, for tbe most part, without fanaticism. There I none of the distracting and wearisome rivalry of aect. Unity of thought and of view ing all matter of conduct I achieved, and this I a great gan, for, however we may pound our head out against the wall, we may never expect Io know any more than tbe rest of mankind. The philosopher are many and dis cordant Optimists, pessimist and Idealists, one soon comes to see that they are all like doctors In a consulta tion, the patient In this case being poor humanity. They wrangle, call name, talk stupidly and without meaning, or else deceive with a false lucidity, and nobody 1 a whit the wiser. Unity of religion I for us.lntellectual ly, .what the sublime unity and whole ness of the sky I to our vision. It is grand, consoling, Immensely restful Where there are many beliefs 11 I a If the blue dome of heaven were divi ded into sections, each bearing a le gend to the effect that this I the only true exit to the other world. The central government should be confided to men who really enjoy gov erning, who delight In having people sitting In ante-rooms, and who have the courage to get rid In an effective manner of people of reforming and rev olutionary tendencies. Newspapers should be encouraged to discuss litera ture and new discoveries, and to crit icise theatrical people. Politics, which Is disquieting, -and the tariff and sli ver questions,- should be dealt with merely philosophically. There is something in the electrical, highly oxygenated northern air which Infuses a subtle madness Into the race. People are forever stirring about and cherishing ambitions and Ideals, and even the women get Infected and go In for fads, and cultivate their minds In the midst of a clatter of clubs,. and waste on Innane "papers" the good Ink which the wise Montaigne and the cheerful Cervantes used to so much bet ter purpose. It Ib a delight to see rest ful, traquil women, and one find them in Mexico, and that, too, among the higher classes who have traveled, have realy lived in Paris, not merely flitting through that , brilliant capital, have breathed the electric air of New York, and looked on at the varied life of northern lands, and have come home to rest and be happy the remainder of their useful, charming lives. They are content to be merely women, wives and mothers, and the proof of their happi ness is to be read in their tranquil, cheerful glance.- ' These women read, and often In dif ferent tongues; they have many ac complishments, and are always good housekeepers, and. are' hospitable hos tesses In their auiet way. The great content of this tropical land rests on them, these charming women of faith and good workay of unvarying sweet ness of character. You should see their grown-up sons affectionately kiss their hands, and: witness the love and reverence given-;them by their daugh ters. Mexico has produced something infinitely better than its silver and gold its women! In the humbler classes one finds this same tranquil happiness. The poor woman, employed fifteen hours a day in a cotton mill, puts flowers in her window, or hangs a singing bird in Its cage on her wall. The women bearing burdens from the fills' come trotting down the country roads with cheerful faces. These poor women throng, on Sundays, and at early hours on week days, the little country, churches, and are the better for the sincerity of their faith. In every little town in Mexico you find flowers, a central garden or park, and hear the song of birds. Roses, red and white, climb the garden walls and hang over the edge to salute you as you pass by. One comes to love the coun try lanes with their rose or geranium hedge or their lofty walls on either side hiding great cool gardens, where the fountains play all day. Everywhere courtesy! from the peon in the field to the hacendado on his ca parisoned steed. A land of calmly (low ing days, where hurry is unknown. Go to Morella or Queretaro, if you wish to leave the modern world of dally pa pers, telephones and railway rush. You will be In the sixteenth century, where you may rest. The happiest men I knbw on this planet live In Mexico. One Is a monk who lives and meditates in an old con vent, .wjbioh stands in a great orchard, and tbe other is a blind man of sixty years, who is as cheerful as the unfail ing .sun of his land." Neither of these men lias any property, neither may in yite you to a banquet, open to you a splendid library, or show you treasures of art collected in wide travels, yet you win be happy with him and enjoy a se rene hour. The monk is a saint strayed from paradise, who Hves here simply to let his light shine, as i com manded. An artist would like to paint his plain, good face. ' Toung people go to see him and value his counsels and friendship. - , !, The blind man ia a welcome guest at a hundred tables, where his wit and cheerful conversation and wise philos ophy of life make him often a domestic arbiter. How much more do our bust ling millionaires get out of life? - My monk says: ."We have all of us, rich and poor, just twenty-four hours in a day. Eight we sleep, perhaps, if our digestion and our consciences are sound, and ambition does not sit by our bedside planning, and the rest we have for work . or recreation? The whole business of life is to get out of those waking hours the greatest num ber of happy ones, Those who fail to realise that twenty-four hours in the day are all we have, for we live only from day to day, and make th best of them, fail in life. Often the rich peo ple fail the most stupidly. I long ago became convinced that soma of the sanest people on' the planet are locked up in mad-houses, and -that the most unhappy lunatics are found In counting-rooms, bank parlors and government offices. Tbe man who falls to get something of substantial happi ness out of the twenty-four hours is certainly Btark mad. He may eat well he may discreetly refrain front frothing at the mouth, he may not cut any ca pers, but a lunatic he is all the same.

' 1 An ancient family Bible, bearing marks of long service by several gener ations, belong to Mr. Henry B. Pres ton of Wapplng. It was originally bound In thick and heavy leather, but one of the cover, hard and atlff a a half Inch board, has been broken off, and nearly one hundred of Ita pagea are gone. Among these I the title page, but evidence remain showing th book to be eighty-three year old. It Is printed in old style and contain the Apocrypha, The Bible has come down to M r. Pres ton from hi grandfather.Shubael Pres ton. The first name on the family rec ord la that of Mr. Preston's grandfa ther's grandfather, John Preston, born In 1716. There have been many John In the Preston line, which I noted for longevity. Silas Prestuo died last year In Eastford at the age of ninety-five. Many others in the line have lived to be ninety. Old John Preston was In the habit of making notes of passing events up on the blank spaces of his Bible. Many of these have reference to the weather, among which the following are Inter esting: 'Locusts very numerous in 1818, and again in 1835, December 19, 1835. re markably cold; great fire In New York. Very severe cold all the winter follow ing; sleighing till past 20th of March. April 17, 1851, began to snow In the morning and continued for twenty-four hours without intermission. Grass Hill road (In Westford) blocked up with snow Ave or six feet deep In many plac es. Stage went Into Hartford on run ners the 18th lnst;snow on level twelve to 18 Inches deep at least May 25, 1824, great frost killed leaves of oak, chest-" nut and many other trees, with all mulberry leaves and vegetables. No vember 7,-1827, snow foot and a half deep on level November 30, 1827, great rain and flood;' did great damage. May 24 and 25, 1832, very cold and rainy; snow covered the ground an Inch or more and lay on the ground, till noon next day.?. , Mr. Pfeston's grandfather was evi dently a pious man and a most assid uous reader of the Scriptures, which fact helps to account for the worn con dition of the venerable Bible: On one page is written the following memoran dum: "Began to. read the Testament July 10, 1826, and ended it October IS." Anojljet- 'entire bad: page ; la -filled wiin cioseiy written reierences io eacn chapter and verse in the Bible in which wine Is' mentioned. Nothing appears to indicate the motive of this inquest. Without the aid of a concordance, it must have required much time and pa tience. ' The book contains a list of the dead in Eastford (formerly the home of the Prestons) for a long series of years. This list was faithfuly kept by Mr. Preston's grandmother, Lucretta, In it many quaint names are found, such as Hovey, Zera, Jared, and the like. Mr. Preston remembers hearing his grandmother tell of tbe burning of New London, which occurred while she was living In Norwich. A Brother of Mr. Preston's grandfa ther was a soldier in the revolution. He captured a Britisher of rank, and delivered His prisoner to General Wash lgton in person. The father of Henry B. Preston's grandfather's grandfather, born in 1667, married Mary . Hay nes, whose name Is one of historical Interest When nine teen years old Mary was taken captive by the Indians and carried into Canada from Haverhill, Mass. She was subse quently ransomed for one hundred pounds of tobacco.' The tobacco was taken to Canada oh a hand sled, and Mary was triumphantly drawn home to Haverhill on the same sled. Afterward she became Mary Preston, removed to Windham county, had. fourteen chil dren, and lived to be ninety years old. : nxxrsKA ris hxkmkx. Out i alng Om Chances for Sport na tbo Sound. , : - - (Hartford PostJ - Hartford is full of deep-sea fishermen who are anxious for reliable news from the sound concerning their favorite sport so that they may make vacation arrangements accordingly. They donjt want -to make plans for a week or more away from then- business and then ar rive at the shore t find that the blue fish haven't begun to bite or that the mackeral are off Watch HUI Instead of in the "Race" as they had been told. The information contained in this ar ticle is furnished by a staff correspond ent of the - Post and may be taken as absolute fact, the reports of hotel Keep ers and' other interested parties 'not withstanding. Most of the alluring re ports of big-catches of fish are furnished directly or Indirectly by parties who are interested In luring the fisherman from his city home, regardless of the disap pointment and expense it may cause First of all the blue fish are not bit ing In the ."Race" as the waters be tween' the. Race Rock lighthouse, and Gull Island light are sailed. 'They have shown there but are shy and there is no troth in the rumors of large catches. The keeper of the Race Rock lighthouse informed the Post correspondent that some blue fish were seen last Friday but bone since. Old fishermen antici pate the "blues", Btriking in at the rRace" ; '."very soon. A few have been caught on Bartlett's reef near the light ship. .-One fisherman, got. fourteen th other evening on the ebb tide. They art small Hb, weighing about three nnnnda. , Thex: do not bite freely and although pome have "been caught through the day they, are -sooat partial Bartlett's reef are to be reeommended to th amateur deep-sea fisherman, but th prospect r good for an early opening of th season at thee locali ties. ' ' ' Th blu fun that are bemg caught at present frequent Hharwam reef, a Can ine ground about four or nv mites Inaide of Montauk. They ar alway quit plentiful blear out at Montauk point and In th vicinity ' of Block Island. The place ar too far away for a great many fishermen, but a visit to them will repay any one anxious for port On fisherman caught thirty eight blu fish In about an hour at Shag warn and they weighed from three to seven pounds. Of course Block island la th moat convenient point from which to reach the fishing ground, but an able steam launch or a staunch cat boat would have no difficulty In reach ing tbera from Nlantlo or New London with favorable weather. All th pre vious reports about blue fishing at these places have been premature. Th fish have been seen there since June but have not been biting until th Inst few days. The fact 1 that the blu fish ar showing themselves all along tbe coast but ar not biting to any extent A thousand were caught In a pond off Groton Long point and they have been seen "breaking" in great quantities at unusual places. All this Indicate great sport when the fish begin to bite, which should be very soon. A school of blue fish got Into a lot of mackerel near Watch Hill the other day. of course spoiling the chances of catching tbe lat ter, nor would they be lured them selves. Mackerel fishing has been brisk the last week or two. The largest catches have been oft Watch HUI In the waters stretching from Wlcopesett channel, be tween Fisher's Island and Wlcopesett Island to a point, to about opposite the Watch HIU hotels. The fish have not been large, averaging less than a pound, although there have been some notable exceptions among them, a four-pounder caught by a Hartford man summering at Fisher's Island. The mackerel have not confined themselves to this locality. although they seem to find the bait fish most to their liking there. They are biting all along the Connecticut coast quite a few just outside New London harbor and some away over by Race Rock. Unfortunate in His Audience.
