E. Mlnard of the A. C. Professor Minard was en route to Europe to take a course at Oxford universitl in 1903, since 'he first join ed the A. C. faculty, and he, like many other students, decided to work his way across on a cattle boat. The boat on which he shipped was the Michigan, of the Warren line. He went from Boston to Liverpool. The professor told his audience last evening a great many of his expert-, ences, most of which were far from pleasant. He stated that the men on those boats are paid by the boat com pany, but they ar* fed by the cattle owners. This results in the men toe ing almost starved, as both the own ers and the cattle men try to shift the responsibility. The men, besides being poorly fed, are miserably hous ed In filthy quarters. After his arrival in Liverpool, Pro fessor Minard went to the authortfes in an endeavor to have some of this injustice to the men on the cattle boats eliminated, and the latter part of his address was devoted to telling of his experiences with the English officials.

On* That Uses Its Fin as Sail—How the Dorado Is Caught. One of the most interesting of fish of Japanese waters is the oriental sail fish (Histlophorus orientalls). The generic name, given by Dr. Guenther. means the sail bearer and refers to the huge dorsal fin possessed by the species. The fin stands higher than the body above it and is used as a sail before the wind. It is a large fish, ten feet in length and weighing 100 pounds. They swim about usually in pairs in rough and windy weather, with the huge fins above the water. It is a favorite food fish, and the an nual catch is nearly 2,000,000 pounds. The sail fish is caught by means of a harpoon. Another food fish, known as a dol phin or dorado, is sometimes caught in a curious way. The fishes congregate under a decoy bush and raft made of bamboos and are then caught by hooks baited with squids, or the decoy bush is surrounded by a seine net, and the dolphins are driven by beating the sur face of the water with sticks. This fish is eaten both fresh and salt and is as great a favorite in western Japan as the salmon is in the northeast.—Zoolo gist. Heat as a Hoalar.
