The neigh boring fishes, following the instincts of their inquisitive nature, come to exam ibo the curious object, and suddenly thoy find tfaetneeivee snapped up in the wide javw of their hidden foe. Tho angler is a very voracious crea ture, and on several occasjons it has been known to seise u fish that liad been booked und was being drawn to the surface. In ooe such case the angler seized n codfith and would not looaen ita grip until it was struck on the bead with n bontbook. On another occasion tho fish fell a victim to its own glut tony, fur having dashed at a conger eel that had just been hooked, and having taken It iuto ita mouth, tho eel con trived to ecHo throngh one of toe gill apertures, and thus it was the nncou- , scions mesne of involving its captor in ; i Woven fate.

Once while talking about a project with an acquaintance tho latter taid he would have to borrow the money for six months, paying interest at' the rato of 3 per cent. "Why do on bor row for 60 abort a timet'" Mr. Cooper asked. "Ijecauae the brokers will not nogotinte W!ls Cor longer."

Boxes Were then used only by tho I wlmLttalc houses toaend out lliairgoods hi, and tbe l-otailer kept theai to show his waitas hi. Now the customer insists upon bis purchase being placed in n , heat box. Not only is this so in the dry goods business, but in every other ImHines, The oyster fry in a box as u peacemaker was u popular joke half a docen years ago; now they put ice cream in luxes, and all sorts of things. Candy used to be sold in paper bags: the smallest purchase has to be put in a bos. The saucy confectioner might hand u papi r bag to a woman who had made u small purchase, hut never to a . HMtn. The inuii is probably more par- ticulur about hi parcel than a v,ouiau. , fie bates to lie seen carrying parcels Biiywuy. ami those he does carry must be thoroughly well disguised. If he buys a bottle uf whisky, he must have it in u box, so that his friends way mis take it tor a pair of shoes. It is not surprising, therefore, that paper box making should have grown into an important industry. In this citv alone no lean tlum fi.OUO utrls ure employed in it. it is a comparatively I clean, iiealtly business, is regular nnd is wtll paid, the wanes averaging be tween f? and flu n week. There aro in this city 75 Onus engaged in the bnatne&s. but three-fourths of it is dune by 10 large firms, whose individual out put will inn from $100,000 to $180,000 a year. As the average cost of a paper box is 5 couta, 3 on can foun some idea front this ot the enormous number that aro used. One candy maker aloue dor j ing the month of December last used 10.000 worth of buaas. Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago are alto prominent in this Industry, and the workmen and girl employed by the firms of those cities cannot be wovh leas than 99.000. There are small Anus. too, in every large e-.ty, in addition to which many large luanuactorers make thett own paper boaaa. The find paper box maker was George W. Pltunly. who started in the basi ness at Philadelphia ia tS46 lie and bis partner cut out the boxes, their only tools being a straight edge, compasses, shoe knife and wianova. They employed Ore girls to pas'o and for six or seven cars bad n monopoly of the baaincea. Then Charles W. Jencks started in the business in Providence and introduced a rbugh scoring machine to cost partly throngb the cardboard where it i fowl ed to make tho Ian. At that time it whs a straggle to obtain proper mate rials. Thtro were few paper mills in tba country, and the straw board used was very poor stuff, not two sheets coming oat of the mill of the same tise. it was made by ham) of straw, meadow bay, refuse stmw trow stable, dried In tha open air on the ground, nod eanaa qurntly was often tilled with aand, which made it interesting for the cut ters. The best quality of mill board was all imported. In those early days the young women in tho paper fox factories made boxes aa their mothers made pies, ' one at a time and that one well." A girl who could make pics quickly and well could make boxes in a similar fctyte. The operations were somewhat similar. There was the same maimer of catting oat material, the same caressing way of patting down ami smoothing oat the box coverings as the pie erott and the same way oi trimming off surplus ma terial. Kow everything la done by ma chinery in paper box making, and the gild Juvh nothing to do but feed the material Id the machines. Ueorge A- Diokermon of lioatoa darted in the business in 13(13 in Bos ton, and about 1870 a Frenchman named Roayaa introduced the basiness in this city. The old fashioned way of scoring the pasteboard with n rule ami a cob bler's kuife continued until Io71, when the first machine was introduced. This was the invention of Mr. Bigelow of New Haven. This seating machine was snch a success tbat a number of tons sprang up. Six ears after n mazr named Marshall of Boston made a lighter and easier running machine, and in IKS I John T. Robinson & Co. invented the present scoring machine. The trouble With the former machines Was to the time it took to adjust tho knives to n new size at pattern of box. In the Robinson scorer there are two sets of knives, so that one set can bo adjusted while tho other is being usert. Nowadays the whole of the material is made in this country, and it is u unt isfactlon to know that the ecoung ma chines and the boxmnking machines ere all the result of Youke ingtnuit Paper boxes are used all over the worlu now, and all the world h to get its machines frojti thin country. In Uranco pairer boxes are still matfo by Irand by many firms, bnt the machines havo becu introduced there, nnd it will not be long befote these Yankee inventions will bo at work in all their factories. The boxinaker now receives $3 for the game work he got $5 for 21 years ago, jet lie makes it larger profit and is able to pay blgbw wages. The nio- t chines aro uncoitq Heated and not ox- pciiHivo. The business gives steady uuipleymeut. ns theie is practically no particular aeason, artel when not work ing on orders the machines aro running on stock, of Which n largo supply has always to be kept on hand.

A great deal is heard from tirao to tinio about tho underpaid clergy. It has bceu lccently uaid by nn English Writer that "thero uro many clerks ill holy orders who rccoi vo Icih than clerks in linen draper's shops." This is es pecially true in Europe, vs here tho cler gy, or nt least tho curates, aro paid such mifcciably poor stipends that but for tho geueiosity of thp parishioner they could not live. In tho United States, too, tho clergy, man, usually n collego bred man of tal ents nnd refinement, receives n salary altogether out uf proportion to his call ing and his ability. This remark does not apply to tho rlorgy in tho large cit ies, to many of whom are paid very largo salaries. In Now York city, for example, it ii Buid that thero aro 100 mi nint era who rccoi vo salaries of 910, 000, and many of them havoiectoriesor parish housee freo in addition.

Whilo tho reflection may not provo of tangible benofltto these underpaid serv ants in tho highest of callings, still it is interesting to know that in u social and iu n financial way, nnd in tho K'lf respect consequent upon theeu coudi ticme, tho clergyman of today is vastly better off than the chaplain or enrato of n century ago.
