character can be classified scientifi
cally whether the lines of the hand

as the pancakes made by the man In

of a bcef and restaurant Their
eyes look upward and they have tails
as slender and tapering as a whip of

The whip tailed rays because of
their long slender tails with their
ercctilo spines at tho end capable of
Inflicting severe and dangerous
wounds aro frequently called sting
rays Tho common sting ray feeds
on oysters clams and other valuable
mollusks and in the Atlantic waters

coast of the United States Is found
tho big skato which reaches a length
ot six feet two feet larger than Its
Eastern relatives
Because of Its habit of rolling it
self up when caught tho common
skato has been called bonnet skate

Glimpse of the Days When Living Waa
Cheap In England
Old time hotel rates in England wero
low For Instance in the days of
Queen Elizabeth the charge at the
George Inn for a feather bed per
night was a penny Dinner cost six
pence 12 cents and offered choice of
beef mutton or plgge or fish In
Btuart times each room owned a name
instead of a number chiefly those of
inn signs such ns the Cross Keys
room the Bell chamber the Adam and
Eve room and so forth
Formerly the custom In Important
cities during festival times was to lim
it the price of food and lodging by
statute In Canterbury during the eel-
cbratlon of the bicentenary of Sockets
translation 1372 tho price of bread
was fixed at two loaves for a penny
2 cents a fairly high figure consid
ering the comparative Talue of money
then and now and wine brought 10
cents a gallon
A century or so later the scale of
prices in Edinburgh all the year round
was equally moderate sheep being sold
at prices ranging from 12 cents to 20
cents according to quality best hens
at 1 cent each and Rocbclle wine at 1
cent a pint Any vender dapartlntr
from these prices ran the risk of for
feiture of bis goods Chicago News
The Ingenious Manner in Which They
Disguise Themselves
Some species of crabs disguise them
selves in an ingenious manner They
deliberately bite up seaweeds and
plant them on tbclr backs very soon
establishing a growth which
nlzcs perfectly with the surroundings
and deceives many nn enemy Should
the weeds grow too vigorously tho
crab industriously prunes them with
his claws and every now and then
scrapes the whole lot off and starts a
fresh garden on his roof so to speak
Tho sponge crab behaves in a simi
lar manner nipping off Ilttlo bits of
living sponge nud sticking them on his
back where they grow vigorously
The same end is served ns In the other
case It is very amusing to keep crabs
of one or other of these kinds in nn
aquarium and depriro them of the
usunl means of concealment
They get very nervous nnd agitated
nnd try to cover themselves with bits
of paper or nnything else that may bo
provided Ono such captive Is snld

for him which he put on In a hurry

Queer Talismans In Malta
There are still to bo found In Malta
a number of small stones shaped and
colored like the eyes tongues and other

tho tradition that St Paul when ship
wrecked was cast on their island and
It was there that while lighting a bun
dle of sticks for a fire a viper fastened
on tho apostles hand St Paul calmly
shook the reptile off into the flames
and no harm followed The natives
wear these stones as talismans in
which character they suppose them
