In Spite of All, Efforts to Keep Up the Supply, the Scarcity Inoreaeea from Year to Year. The annual report of a dearth in lobster fisheries has made its ap pearance in January, reenforced by the United States fish commissioner who reports that each year it becomes more difficult to obtain lobster eggs along the New England coast. This de crease is most noticeable south of Cape God. Measures for the protection or ostensibly designed for the protection of lobster fisheries are an established feature of annual legislation on the North Atlantic seaboard, says the New York Sun. In 189!) the Maine legisla ture reduced the penalty for the tak ing of "short lobs-ters" from five dol- | larx to one dollar and New York dimin- i ished the penalty in the same year. In 1900 Massachusetts adopted a law pro- i hibiting lobsters from being caught in the waters within or adjacent to that state by anyone not having been resident of it for one year, and the same legislature made it unlawful to sell, or to have on hand, a lobster of less than 10% inches long. Virginia adopted a law authorizing the board of fisheries, on petition of 50 citizens, to lay off shoals or rocks for crabbing grounds, and South Carolina adopted a statute for regulating the catch, sale, export and canning of clams, oysters and lobsters. The two states which hare adopted the most comprehensive and stringent methods for the regula tion of deep-water fisheries are Mary land and New Jersey. Massachusetts and Virginia have followed, while New York and Connecticut have fewer, though New York is the great lobster consuming constituency of the United States and probably of the world. Although 60.000.000 lobster eggs were planted in New England water, the lobster dearth still continues in con sequence of a constantly enlargingde mand. High prices are the rule and re course has been had to the waters of the Pacific coast as a source of addi tional supply and the propagation of lobsters there is said to have been at tended thus far with great success.

MTlurry,Cooper & Grill WVWM WNWWVNWM '"■*** MMMWWMMMWMWWMWWMM WWW DEFEATED THE BICYCLISTS. A Florida Ostrich That Gives Fast Wheelmen and Horses All the' Racing They West, "Go and hitch up the ostrich," is not at all an absurd command on an ostrich farm. There these great birds are often harnessed to a carriage, and j make fairly good substitutes for j horses. Although they cannot draw a heavy load, their speed is' a recoin- ' mtvndation, says Youth's Companion. At Jacksonville, Fla., there is a bird named Oliver W. that can run a mile in two minutes and 22 seconds. His owners claim that he is more satis factory than a horse because he eats less, never shies at anything, never runs away, and goes steadily at a good pace without laziness or fatigue. This particular ostrich appears to like his work. When the little carriage is brought out he comes running to ward it at full speed, with both wings spread out, ready to have the harness put on. On one occasion a cyclist tried to pass Oliver W. on a long, smooth stretch of road. He came up behind the carriage, thinking to get ahead and escape the dust. Oliver W. thought differently. He threw his head, high in the air, gave a flap with his wings, and. went forward with a speed that astonishedl the cyclist. Putting forth more effort, the latter made another attempt to pass the ostrich, but the faster the pedals of the bicycle moved the faster sped the long legs of the bird. It so happened that the cyclist had a record as a fast rider, and to he dis tanced by an ostrich was not to his liking. For two miles he tried to pass his feathered, rival, but was then obliged to give up the race, defeated. Some fast horses have tried, conclu sions with Oliver W., who seems to like nothing better thian testing their speed, starting slowly to make them think it easy to distance him, and>then gradually increasing his pace. FINE VENETIAN LACES. X Great Advance Hoe Been Made os the Methode ot Primitive Needle Work«», The stamp of perfected elegance which all Venice lace hears is the re sult of its having been evolved in a period and environment, of luxury and constantly widening art development, says the Chautauquan. Primitive needlewomen display no art ingenuity j n getting beyond the simpler twisted effects in thread work The product of native Indians, of Syrians, of South Americans, and even of the Mexicans, is all flat. Twisted threads forming meshes similar to those seen in veil- ! ings and with a "star" ground, are the sole resource of these workers, to whom even the open buttonhole stitch as an embellishment is unknown. Though often most complex in de sign, the early laces of Italy and Spain. were equally flat until the workers began to imitate with the needle the raised and knotted effects of the hard reticella or bone laces of Greece. Once the method, of applying the buttonhole stitch became known among them, however, the experimenters among the more enlightened workers of those countries, and later of France and England, were untiring in testing the possibilities. Soon this stitch became the basis- of all Venetian laces. It was used for the making of every portion j of the pattern, including the plain and ornamental brides that connected the closely placed, but irregular, motifs; for the cordonnet» or raised bordera and edges, and even for the filling-in stitches. . 1 of to to A HUNTING EPISODE. Bad Marksmanship Is Not Invariably a Disadvantage as Is Here Seen. ! Two hunters who were shooting in New Jersey were not equally matched as regards skill in shooting. One of them bagged many birds, while the other did not get a feather, says Judge. "What, ho." said the first, "but you are punk. Why don't you practice with « pop-gun? You could not hit a barrel if you poked the end of your fowling piece in the bung-hole." The other said nothing, hut he gazed sadly on his empty bag and enviously at tlie birds his companion had slaugh tered. As they were about to start for home they met an affable stranger, who asked: "What luck?" "I have killed 23 birds," said the good shot, "while this lobster here has not killed one. Isn't he a chump to carry such a heavy gun all day?" "Well, I am not sure," said the affable stranger. "I am a game warden and this is the closed season. Those birds will cost you ten dollars apiece." Mora!—A bird in the game hag is sometimes worth a whole bunch in the hushes. How the Moaey Goea. The king receives £803 in lieu of duty and butterage on wines import ed into the duchy of Lancaster; the prince of Wales receives many thou sands a year for the loss of tfuties on tin in Cornwall, and the house keeper of the crown office receives £ 13 a year because the house of lords, in an impulsive moment. 18 years ago,abolished her post and left her with nothing to do.
