In the year of 1870, «yeung theologi"
cal student pas ed through il.e town of
Newark (Worcester county) en route for
the Synepuzent Bay, where, with fishing,
sailing, etc., he intended ts rpenrl a few
weeks, with the hope of improving his
health, which was very delicate, by reason
of too dose application to his studies.
While at that place he became acqainted
with a young lady and .n the end they
were married, aud lived to- ther for a few
But the implacable hand of duty pointed
toward the path the young husband should
tread, and it sent him to one of th« far
South Sea Islands, there to spread the
balm of salvation on the sins of the be
nighted heathen, Through delicate rea
sons the young wife was adjudged unfit to
undertake the journey, and the parting be
tween the loving pair, though sad and sor
rowful, was tinged with the bright hope of
their being united when a habitation could
be erected in the land where for the salvas
tion of whose people he had devoted his
life. News of the young missionary's ar
rival at bis destination was received at
home, and at intervals letters were ex
changed, when, through the channel of the
American Missionary Si c cty his friends
that he had been killed, cooked and eaten
by the people whom he was trying to lead
to eternal felicity. The shock well nigh
sent the widow to an early grave. But
rallying, she again resumed her place in
her father's mansion, and was again woed,
wod and wed to a yonDg commercial tra
veler for a New York h< use. Subsequent
events went to prove that the yonng mis
sionary'* death, though coming through so
reliable a source, was false Under one
of the miraculong interventions of Provi
dence he escaped in a cauoe and drifted
far out on the sea, determining rather to
seek a grave in its peaceful depths than to
fill the paganized maw of a benighted can
nibal. He had been on the weary waste
of waters three days, and was well-nigh
passing in his checks, when a Russian
whaler picked him up aud carried him to
a Russian seaport town, the name of which
is unpronounceable, where under Mus
covite influence, be espoused their cause
against the Turk, was captured in the en
gagement before Kars, and taken to Con
stantinople where, through the influence
of the American consul, he was released,
and took passage to the United States.
Arriving in New York he hastened hither
with a lover's impetuosity and hope, and
found, alas! that his wife had flown—lie
knew not whither. A few eveniDgs since
he left Newaik an apparently broken
THE WORLD'S OYSTER MINE
CHESKPFAKE BAY OYSTERS—MOUTHS
BMLLED WITH THE LETTER "R-"
There is no one article of rood that ha*
grown sa much in the estimation, not only
of oar own people but of the world at
large, as the oyster, and to such a degree
has this estimation increased that the
number of oysters exported to meet the
foreign demand is constantly on the in
Fortunately the yield of the oys s
ter issopro.ifie and the river boltoms of
eountry are so favorable to its propa
gation that there is no danger of our ever
being unable to meet any demand that
be nude for this favorite article of
lood. Few people, however, are aware of
*he Immense amount of labor that is ir.
volved In the care and development of the
oyster before it teichesa condition to make
it suitable for the table.
In the State of Virginia the oyslers grow
naturally, the waters of that Slate and of
the Chesepeake Bay and its tributaries
being especially suited for its culture and
growth, aud so large is the yield that net
only is the New York market furnished
with ita choicest bivalve*, blit also tbe
cities of Philadelphia and Baltimore, and
the markets of the great West and South.
During the spring months, when our
oysters are spawning, ethers are brought
here from Virginia in sloops chartered for
tbe purpose, and on their arrival they aie
dumped in the bay, not for the purpose of
cultivating them, hut ti preserve them
daring the summer mooths, when, owing
to tbe excessive heat, it would he impos
sible to bring them heie without spoiling.
They are then t aken Irom the waters of the
bay as of fen as the demand for them re
quires it to be none.
During the months of Miy, June, July
and August the oys.er spawns, and though
it is not then considered a suitable article
of food, Bevertheless even then large
quantities of them are consumed by the
lovers of the article who cannot restrain or
•ontrol their appetites. By a singular
coincidence the oyster spawns during
months whoso names do not contain tbe
