Bea-sieauns;, inousjn moy uiu n vn It by to harsh name, w leadtn in dustry by tho thrifty dwtlleri In thl ' town two hundred yean ago. That was a food Urn for rturdy adventure afloat; and our wcll-wettled New York era were not the kind then, any more than they are now, to let money-making chances Mp away by default Even In refoirlni to what la styled (but very erroneously)' the drowsy period of the Dutch denomination, the most romantlo of our historians haVe not ventured that anybody ever went to sleep when there' waa a bargain to be made; and In the period to which I now refer, when the English fairly were feettled In possession of New York by twenty years of occu- pancy, exceeding wlde-awakeness was the rule. Nor was anybody troubled with squeamlshnesa. Therefore It was that our townfolk, paltering no more with fortUM'than they did with moral scruples, set themselves briskly to col- . lectins the revenues of the sea. .These revenues were raised by two different systems, , which may be lik ened, for convenience' sake, to direct and to Indirect taxation. In the first case, our robust townspeople put out to sea In private armed vessels ostenta tiously carrying letters of marque en titling them to war against the king's enemies which empowering documents the construed, aa soon as they made' an offing from Sandy Hook, as entitling them to fay hands upon all desirable property that they found afloat under any flag. -. The indirect method of taxation' had In it less heroic quality than was in volved in the direct levy; yet was It, being safer in a business way and al most as profitable, very extensively car ried on Euphemism was well thought of even: the' In New York; wherefore this more conservative class of sea-robbers posed squarely as honest mer chants engaged In what they termed the Red Pea Trade. At the foot of the letter, as" our French cousins say, their position was well taken. Their so-called merchant ships dropped down the har bor Into the bay and thence out to sea ward, carrying, for merchantmen, odd ly mixed ladings, Whereof the main quantities were arms and gunpowder and cannon-balls and lead, and strong spirits, and provisions, and general sea stores. Making a coirse to the south eastward, they would slide around the .pe to some convenient meeting-place In the Indian , ocean, usually Madagas car,, where they would fall In with other Ships whereof the lading was eastern stuffs, and spices,: and precious stones, and a good deal of deep-toned yellow-red Arabian gold No Information was vol unteered bytheir poEsesfors, a rough-and-tumble,,vd9e-deyll,vlm'shy-bearded set of men, ft to where1 these pleasing commodities came fromr nor did the New Yorkers manifest tn Indiscreet cu riosity being etntent that they could exchange . their jading -for the Oriental ladlngximftbkA made-the trans- 'fcotton profltabla (lii -Johnsonian phrase) beyond the); dream. of avarice.. Vhen the exchaase had been, .effected, ' the parties to ft separated amicably; the late venders of the Oriental goods be taking themselves, : most gloriously drunk on their prodigal purchases 'of West India . rum, to parts unknown, and the New Yorkers decorously return ed with their rich freightage to their home port. .

York In those days which canie'-and went again two .hundred years agor yafc both of them were more than tolepated, ond the Red Sea Trade ,was regarded as a business rather than as a. crime. Because liberal views In regard- to, what, might.-properly enough be done off soundings, or at out-of-the-way Islands In the ocean sea, it Is a fact thaat the fag end of the sev- " enteenth century , our enterprising town folk wire sufficiently prominent in both ; pure and simple,, and as keen traders ' driving hard- bargains with pirates In the; purchase Of their stolen goods to fix upon themselves the ill-tempered attention of pretty much the whole of the civilized world.

These baits Lake Keuka black bass will rarely notice, and he Is not partial to young frogs. The best bait for bass to this water la a little minnow, which Is caught la a creek that flows Into the lake. It Is called the streaked side, The minnows natural to the lake shiners and other kinds are. Indiffer ently taken by the bass. During the day the angler drifts slowly In his boat along the shores. The fishing Is done in comparatively shallow water, along the outer edges of the thick growths ot submerged water weeds. If any sinker Is used it is a very light one. The minnow must be always lively, or the day feeding bass will not come near It At night the fishing Is done In an en tirely different manner. Then the fish erman seeks water thai is thirty or forty. feet deep. 'Instead of a single hook, he .uses a gang of eight or ten tied In pairs an inch apart The. hooks are but little larger than ordinary trout fly hooks. Until .last, season, the lure used was either a dead lake shiner or a little brilliant fish known as the saw- belly, or a piece of fat, pork; utn a narrow strip and ' wound temptingly about the gang of hooka. .Last sea) n some one made the discovery that the bass, as If to keep up and add to' their reputation... ror . .capnciousness, ..wouiu take a black, fly at. night, with especial avidity. The fly that seems' to be the most killing la a big. fuzzy"-thing, as long as a caterpillar, and with very few feathers on It This is Wed om a large, crooked hook ' with' a long shank. Ac cording to a local angler: Pt jnudh ob servation, this queer-looking hire rre sembles closely an Insect that abounds at this time of the year on the weeds that grow on the bottom, of the. lake, and upon which the bass spend' the night in feeding " '; ' If the fisherman uses the. gang of hooks and a shiner, sawbelly, or piece of pork, the bait Is so attached to the gang that when it ie trolled through the water it wltf whirl; The leader used Is six feet long. When It Is fast ened to the line another Mne, two or end of this la attached- a lead sinker of about four ounces in,, weight ; This is let to the bottom. ,'.

Bluff Point - a . bold promontory rising more than eight Hundred feet above the lake ajt,the Junction of the west branoh with the Idke proper, Is the. favorite Id eality for nightbass flahing. lfv' '?: If a person is rugged and tcjigh.?ud likes' a dash of the Weird and unoanny mingled with his surroundings, he will enjoy black bass fishing at night on Lake Keukai A, There Is a chill in the wind that sweeps the lake, almost in variably from the north, that goes straight to the marrow. , The numb ness of flngere that follows the hand ling of a wet llne.and the- adjusting anew of bait, is not calculated to give Joy to the angler unaccustomed to this kind of fishing, but the natives to the manner born seem to dote on It. The shadows of Bluff Point are dark, and the front of the bluff itself rises, like k grim spectre on the scene. ' The cry of the loon, walling, demoniacal,- and blood-curdling, sometimes- - bursting upon one' almost at his side, and then coming from afar with the chasing waves is among, the attendant diver sions, and one that doea not add much to the cheerfulness of the surround ings. That this novel way of, fishing Is popular in -Lake KeukaA however, was well testified to the other night when no: less, than fifty boats .were drifting about in the shadows of Bluff Point alone, each containing from two to three .fishermen. . The oatoh of big bass that-Tifght' ran far up 'into the hundreds. Ordinary every day black bass fishing, always good on Lake Keu ka, is especially fine this fall. - . .., v METHODIST BISHOPS.

The master was but of the city; his old mother, his wife, and a female ser vant were the only persons In the house at the time. Three men, having their faces masked, and-earrylng long swords entered the door. ' One asked the ser vant whether any ot the apprentices were still in the building, and she, hoping to frighten the Invaders away, answered that the young men were all still at work. But the robbers were not disturbed by this assurance. One post ed himself at, the entrance, the other two strode Into the sleeping apartment The women started up in alarm, and the wife asked, i'Why do you wish to kill us?" He who seemed to be the leader answered, "We do not wish to kill you, we want money only. But if we do not get It then it will be this," striking his sword Into the matting. The old mother sad, "Be so kind as not to frighten my daughter-in-law, and I will give you whatever money there Is In the house. But you ought to know there cannot be muoh, as my son has gone to Kyoto." She handed him the money draw and her own purse. , There were Just twenty-seven yen and eighty-four sen. The head robber count ed it and said pulte gently, "We do not want to frighten you. We know you are a very devote believer In Bud dhism, and we think you would not tell a He. Is this all 7" "Yes, It Is all." she answered. T ain, as you say, a believer In the teaching of the Buddha, and If you come to rob me now, I believe it Is only because I myself, In some former life, once robbed you. This is my punishment for that fault, and so, Instead of .wishing to deceive you, I feel grateful for this oppertunity to atone for the wrong which I did you In my previous state of existence." The robber laughed, and said, "You are a good old woman, and we believe you. If you were poor we would not rob you at alL Now we only want a couple of kimono and this,'' laying his hand on a very fine silk' overdress. The old woman replied, "All my son's kimono I can give you, but I cannot give what belongs to another." "That is quite right" approved; the robber, "and we shall not take tt ,,.,.' . After recelylngf.B; few robes, the rob bers said good night, very politely, bnt ordered the women not to took after them. The old servant was still neaf the door.

Before' the expiration of tha first, hour, however, the selling was renewed with vigor and Jersey Central fell Z to 8014, Del aware and Hudson to 119 and Lacka wanna H -to . Finding that the attack on these shares was less suc cessful In bringing out long stock, New York Central was taken hold of and sold down to 97H, Lake Shore also dropped 1 points on light trading to 130H. The decline in New York Cen tral bringing In London buying orders, the selling ceased and the stock ral lied tb 981 The strength of sterling exchange helped those operating for lower prices In the stock market, as It gave rise to rumors of gold exports later In the week. Sterling, however, closed easier owing to marked falling off In the de mand. With the cessation of the liqui dation In the coalers, the shorts showed more disposition to cover in other parts of the list The scarcity ot .stocks In the loan crowd and the high premiums for bor rowing purposes, coupled with a little buying of strictly Investment Issues by commission houses, stimulated the upward movement lata In the day.
