THE OHIOAOO FyAn, i. nrii-wT-"l " v--ryy- ' GREATLY CONDtMNED QAR8. Not at Alt Hentitlful, but Thetc FUk Itnve Good Hciine. Nearly nil the Intnml waters of south ern and middles America are Infested by the long-snouted and toothful, though' not toothsome, gar. In the Mississippi It occasionally reached n slzo that makes It hurtful to adult swimmer and dangerous to children. Gars have been taken from the Mis lsslppl which measured eight feet 1 length and weighed nearly 200 pounds. These sullen monsters are not afraid of anything and nro more apt to attack swimmer than 'nro many kinds of harks. Plenty of peoplo living along the big river bear scars on their arras or thighs from gar teeth. In tho small lakes, however, they do sot often attain a greater weight than Ix or eight pounds and mcasuro In length from eighteen to thlrty-slx laches. These are not big enough to hurt human beings, but play smash with the angler's bait. The gar's Jaws are ns formidably armed aa those of the muskallongc. It has row upon row of teeth, somo as sharply pointed as needles and others having slicing, cutting edges to tuoin. These Jaws are nearly half as long ns the fish's body and work like a pair of scissors, ns certainly nnd moro rap idly. The gat Is the only one of our fishes able to cut a silk line of any size, no matter how small, nnd It docs this with a quietness nnd precision highly exas perating. There nre ninny waters, good bass waters, which fishermen have been compelled to desert, fishing them with success being rendered Impossi ble by the gars. t The gar has sense. It Is almost Im possible to hook It In the usual way even when It takes the attached bait, which does not happen often. The Interior of the snout Is a hard, bony substance with a thin stretching of akin over It, and the hook will not Ink In sufficiently to hold. In gen eral, however, the gar, which Is ex ceedingly wise, will not seize tho bait Instead It swims near, makes a sur vey, carefully locates tho line, swims nearer, opens Its Jaws, makes a snip, and then eats tho mlnnrfw or frog at leisure. Air that' tho angler feels Is the merest twitch of the tackle. He may think that It Is a bass gin gerly taking hold, or he may recognize the wily and fatal work of the gar. In any event he has nothing to do savo to reel In swiftly, find hook, bait and wlvel gone, and bend on now ones. A prejudice exists against tho gar ns edible, yet It Is not wholly bad. It Is a cleanly fish In feeding, living on min nows, frogs nnd such things, nnd not touching decaying matter. In this re spect It Is better than tho catfish, which will cat anything It can swallow, taste being something of no valuo to It , Tho flesh of tho gar Is In altcrnato trips of whlto and dark meat, the whlto lying along the sides and the dark near tho backbone. THE DANCING WINE GLASS. Take two wine bottles of even size and close them with corks, ns shown In figure. Cut the top of the corks in wedge shape. Take two tablo knives with heavy handles and place them on the edges of the corks, as shown In fig ure, their points touching each other. On the points of the knives place a thin glass filled with so much water that It balance! on the tips of the knives. Then carefully let a small metal ball or piece of money attached to a string down Into the water without touching bottom, and you will seo the glass away down, and then up again, as soon as you remove the bal) from tho water. This experiment Is best done with music,' as the glass will appear to be dancing to tho tune that Is played. CHINAMAN AND THE PEN. Celestial Understood Its Construction at First Blulit. A certain nowspapcr man who was Induced to "try" a stylographlc pen got It out of order by reckless treat ment and took It to a penshop for re pair. The man thcro soon showed him that there was nothing serious the matter with It the only troublo being that ho had neglected to do somo little thing In using it. Then ho began to tako the peu apart for tho newspaper man's Instruction, so that he might see how very slmpla a thing It Is. "Simple!" cried the Indlguant owner of tho Instrument, "It Is as compli cated as a Chinese puzzle! I don't woudcr that I can't make It 'go' when I want to!" Tho penman laughed. "You remind me," ho said, "that there Is a Chinaman In this town who used a stylographlc regularly, lie came hero to buy ono several niuutu ago, and when I showed It to him he began to tako It all apart. I hurriedly stopped ulm, supposing that ho woula do It an Injury, but he at once put down the valuo of tho pen, saying that It was bis, and then continued tho dis section of it I glvo you my word that he bandied the pea moro deftly than the man who made It, and In five min utes he bad put it together again so that It worked better than It did at first Thoso fellows beat the world at understanding little details. Now, an Irishman or an American I beg your pardon-could never have done that) and, remember, It was the first pen of the kind the Ohaaaa aver saw.

For Rheumatism, Stomach, Liver or Kidney troubles Deer Lick Mineral Water has no superior. The following testimonials from .well-known physi cians and prominent citizens tell a true story: Tho Medical Standard for Jan uary, 1001, says: .T. B. Murphy, M. D 100 State street Chicago, Sept. 22, 1800, writes: Tho Deer Lick Mineral Water Is one of well-deserved reputation, and is des tined to linvo n very extensive use by the profession nnd tho Inlty. I.. Evcrlnghnm, Boom 80, Board of Trndo Building, Chlcngo, Nov. 2, 1807, writes: I have used several cases of Deer Lick Mineral Water with good results and consider It nn excellent tonic, nnd one of nature's best restora tives. "Of the many natural mineral wa ters on the market we have some from American springs which meet the lndl-J cations or many uiseasea conumons, such as dyspepsia, indigestion, consti pation, BrJght's disease. We wish espe cially to call attention to the Deer Lick Mineral Water.

It Is with pleasure that wo call the attention of the trade, and private faui lllcs, to tho fuct that owing to the In creasing demand for bottled ale and porter of undoubted purity and of the finest quality, we are now bottling the 'sumo under our own supervision. Tho frequent uso of adulterants and substitutes for malt and bops In the mnuufneturo of malt liquors has re sulted In nn Inquiry for tin nrtlclo of domestic manufacture, wholly free from nuytulng of a harmful or deleteri ous nature, and at a, price that would commend its uso to all.' Tho failure hitherto to obtain such an urtlclo has led consumers to "purchaso Imported goods at a high price. Therefore wo aro prepared to place on tho market bottled ale nnd porter unexcelled in quality, equal In every respect to tho Imported, at a much lower price. v Our goods being manufactured from the choicest barley malt and the best bops in tho market, no substitutes whatever being used, and, being bottled by ourselves at Waukegan, enables us to offer to our customers an absolute guaranty of their purity and quality. Families can obtain these goods of all the leading fancy grocers, the prin cipal hotels, restaurants and druggists. BEBLEY'S V7AKKOAH .BREWING 00. HENRY E, BRANDT.
