The nrt of casting Is In Itself simple and mny be readily acquired by uny painstaking fisherman. Tho rod iiasm- only through n qundrnnt; It starts par allel with the water and, coming to the perpendicular, stops. The motion Is a quick, rigid Jerk as fast ns It van be made, and the rod does the real. Tho motion forward Is at the beginning a gradual feeling for the tension of the line that Is, when It is nbout to straighten. Once this Is assured the movement Increases hi rapidity from butt to tip, the result being much tlic same, ns driving nt a peg with n long handled hammer slow at the xtnrt nd quick at the finish, the bend of tli" rod being first at the butt nnd gradual ly ascending to the tip. In ciiBtlng nothing Is left to rliani by the expert caster. He knows -xn-t ly where he wauts to put his Uy, with In n footer two, and puts It there, th" feathered barb traveling past liltn (it from six Inches to four feet above the water, as he mny elect although' It nmj go above the shoulder If desired. In some long casts one may sec the lly pass below the hip. Indeed the degree of command one can gradually acquire U really wonderful. A single cast where fish arc located Is, as n rule, sufficient. They will rim- at once, and If the fisherman Is nn ex pert nt dropping his fly be can bring fish to the spot from somo dlntnme One may frequently see fish nttroctod from a point so far from the lly that they break water two or throe time before taking the book. On the other hand, a fly awkwardly dropped will I taken with n leisurely grab, the hhIi simply sucking It In, and the exhllnra tlon of a spirited rise Is lost.

This very odd bit Is by n Chlnnmoir "A little schoolboy while on his way to school ono day picked up what seemed lo htm n smnll white pebble. He put It Into his pocket. It proved to be n snake egg, ninl in time through the bent of his pocket It hutched out u young reptile. "The Imy fell In lovo with It nnd cur ried It from day to day to school with him nnd' fed It with n part of bis own lunch until t became too big to be cur ried, .when ho made a nest for It nt home. 'Hut one day It suddenly grew to enormous size, nnd upon tho boy's ar rival home he was frightened to death. "When tho monster saw what ho had dono ho wns sorely nflllctod nnd re fused to be fed, but Immediately put on mourning by turning his color from brown to pure black. He crawled bo side the grave of his departed friend and lay there for seven days nnd nights. "At the completion of the soventh night ho came back to bis laic home, but tho Iwy's old mother was so en raged at him for killing her only son that sho picked up an' ax and chopped his tnll off. "With n fearful scream and n lash of his bleeding tnll he felled tho house and made his way to tho Moo Soon Ban rnountnlns, where bo never shows him self but onco n year, Just about the tlmo when ho lost his tall, to come out und mako trouble for tho people by cre ating storms called the typhoon.
