With tbe advent of September alter the R-less months of May, June, July and August, tbe Atlantic ocast, all the way from Long Island sound down to the tip of Florida, becomes a scene of wild animation, all due to the silent, but de li a lit fill oyster. It is only proper at this precrse season of the year that some detailed attention should be paid to tbe newspaper reading and oyster eating public to this enjoy able product of tbe ocean, which, for tbe next eight months will do such valiant service on the tables of the rich and tbe poor alike. Gourmands have sometimes j been shocked by the thought thst per- Hauling in the Dredge haps the oyster would some day become extinct. Hut tbey should not worry. The maternal instinct is developed in tbe lady oyster to a rare degree. Every year she produces 60.000,001) eggs, which in three yeara' time will have grown sufficiently to adorn the table of a millionaire. There is a goodly proportion of females among the 60,000,000, and before they have been scooped up in the merciless dredge tbey, too, will have contributed their quota to the oyster population. The groat oyster producing section lies between the southern point of New Jersey and half way down tbe North Carolina coast. South of that the oysters are oven more plentiful than above, but they have not been farmed and cultivated as care iully. In the regular oyster communities, that is the villages and small towns supported by tbe oyster industry, and there are scores of them, the care of the oyster is officially regulated by an association, of which all the oyster men aro members. Each colony lias its annual meeting for tbe election of officers. The captain of each boat obtains a yearly license from the collector of the association, the usual charge being $1 per ton for the burthens of the craft. The association protects the oyster farms from the depredations of outsiders and sees that none of the members take unfair advantage of tne others. Five hundred boats|mal;e up a prosper ous colony, each craft carrying a crew of four men. Large fore es of men are em fiioyed by tbe shippers on shore, so that n a small place the oyster gives employ ment to 2500 or 31)00 men. They make fair ear,lings, and. in tbe main, are old fashioned, bard-workingfolk, careful and industrious, whose forefathers were oys ter men and whose great grand children will probably be the same. They have comfortable homes and are. in tbe main, Americans to the core and bave an ab sorbing love and faith in their country. These folks are interesting, but so is tbe oyster. A majority of people think that the bivalve is an untamed product of the sea. As a matter of fact, he is as carefully attended itS'as potatoes or corn by the skillful farmer. The planting time of the oystter is in the spring and the harvesting time in the tall and until the next spring. lint the plants of one spring are not gathered until tbe fill of three years later. Wben the harvesting time is over, at the end of March, the oysterman begins to plant. His first work is to stake out his farm. Tbe deck of his sloop is piled np with stskes, usually scrub oaks, twenty feet in length, denuded of all their brancbes except those at tbe top. The first work is to select his garden. The captain gets a "range" by some object on shors. und then proceeds to stake off about twenty or twenty-tit c acres. Stakes are driven in the bottom at each of the picture, which show) them covered by hailing boots. There Is nn expression in feet, and ■ very great meaning. The Cleveland feet are. first of all, solid ana nsefnl. The characteristics of Mr. Cleveland's exterior from top to bottom „nr| all the way round ars solidity, a lack of superfluous rstine nient, pudginess to an extent that is per haps regrettable, but take it all in all the chief characteristic is strength. Ororer Cleveland's feetsre of good size. They are bigger than Benja min Harrison's, and they look much more solid. The instep is rather high and the ball of the foot is very broad. He stands and wuIKS so that his Wa.st.nd.rouser, heelS ™ Men who push specialization to an ex treme declare that the foot which touches the ground with an evjn weight at all points indicates in its possessor a well rounded, well-balanced mind and especi ally a good moral character. It may be. as these specialists say, that the thief wears out his heels in'a peculiar way. and that the man who lacks decision of character wears away his soles on the outer edges. We really do not know much about that, but we do know that the man who wears out his soles on the outer edge is bow-legged, that be who wears them out on the inner edges is knock-kneed, and that the man who stands and waits straight on bis feet is straight-legged. By a simple but glorious mental opera tion taught us by Lord Bacon we discov- ' er that Grovel Cleveland possesses man's greatest charm--straight iegs. It will be observed that when he fishes four COT Deri and half a dozen at inter mendiate points ef the square. To the novice it is a matter of wonder how a skipper can sail into his own par ticular aaraen every mornine. when there are live hundred others seemingly like it in the neighrborhood. The frail stakes protect the owner from intrusion as securely as if his garden were surrounded by a stone wall. This is part of the morality of the oysterman. All the plant ing is done between April Ist and June 15tb. Certain natural beds are set apart by the association, and here the planting seed is obtained. Three bushels a day ia the maximum allowed each member. The oyster seed ia the milk or spst or spawn, which is deposited during the snnimer season and adheres to some ob ject in tbe water This liquid, which is really the baby oyster, hardens slowly. When the Dsby oyster has reached the age whon its shell begins to form be set tles down to the responsibilities of life. He lirst finds something that he can cling to. His mother is of no assistance to bim, as her children are too numerous for any Individual care He selects, per haps a dead starfish, a chunk of iron, an old hoot, a cracked bottle, a lost alienor or anything else handy, and holds on to it until he feels strong enough to begin the battle of life. By the novice, the spawn would never be recognied. It is usually deposited on empty shells, but a close examination of these show hundreds of tiny brown specks. Each Heck is a baby oyster. These shells are thrown into the garden. In a year after planting they will be as large'the narrow way as a nickel; in two years a half dollar won't cover tbem while in three years it is probable that a dollar will be required to purchase 100 of them in New York, and every one of them will exceed the dollar in sire. All this when the oyster has a fair chance to grow. He is truly a tiny morsel when lie begins his career,and although full of energy, seems jto Know how frail he is. This makes him clannish, sociable or sometimes grasping, as you may please ti understand it. From June 15 until September 1 tbe oysterman have a rest. When t';e har vesting time bcigns. the boats on the oys ter neld seems possessed ot some demon which drive them hither and thither in a most remarkable way. They tack, gibe, go about, race back aud forth over their respective gardens, with maddening haste. All the bonts are fitted with a dredge and windlass. The dredge is an iron affair, over three feet, shaped like the human band when the lingers are bent in toward tbe palm. The windlass is a tall machine, composed ol two iron uprights, with a strong reel mounted between them. At. each end oi the leel is a large iron crank and a system of coes and ratchets. Coiled around the reel is an iron cbuin, the end of which is fastened to the dredge. When the dredge is thrown overboard and the boat put in motion, it scoops in everything along the bottom which comes in its way. When tbe boat is headed into tbe wind and slowed up. the dredge is hauled in. Crabs, small sharks, flounders and all manner of things aro drawn in with the oysters. Ail .but tho latter aie thrown back into the water. If any starfish, "borers" or "conks" are caucdit they are killed, as tbey destroy the oyster. Wlnle the dredge is again in the water two of the crew attend to the "culling." Oysters of small size and under age are thrown back. Only those of the recog- nized size and shape are preserved. These are dumped into the hold and then the deck is ready for the dredge again. Monday morning until Friday is spent by a boat in the bed. Then the market town is headed for. The eaten is turned over to tho shippers. First, the oysters are transferred to a Moat, where they re main under water a day and a half, to be cleared of the bitter sea water and to freshen and fatten. Tbe oysters drink the partially fresh water, which cleans them of mud and sand and increase? their size. The "scow gang" next takes hold of the oyster. This gang counts tbem and packs them in big or barrel. Fight thousand oysters a day is a fair catch for a beat. Edible Toadstools A great many people fall into the error of considering every mushroom r.' a cer tain form and shape as being lit for food. In order to show what a grave mistake this is, we will say tbat there are upward of 500 species of fungi,toadstool or mush rooms, and that only 1.14 of that great number can be safely regarded ns edible, in tbe whole of tbe United States there are only eight species of tungi that are lit for food and thirty that are deadly poolsn. The valuo of the year's cotton crop is estimsled at 124,750,000, but is likely to exceed that sum. although tha crop will net be as large as was lirst predicted.

It is nothing more nor less than a float ing theater, or in othci words, a big steamboat, witb an interior modeled like that of theater. The theater boat can steam from town to town with the com pany, scenery and orchestra on board; give a performance one night and he at the next town by the following morning. Ladies and gentlemen of the stage wbo bave been stranded in backwoods com munities look with favor upon ilie new order of things. They argue that a con cern rich enough to support such a thea ter will surely have money enough to buy fuel to send.the steamer with the compa ny to a town large enough to bc'stranded in, in salcty. In fact, all the Thespians assert that it will be a gold mine for the proprietors ol the show, as tbey will nave na theater rent to meet, no transportation for tbe company and scenery or hotel bills to pay. The novelty of seeing a lino show on shipboard, it is claimed, will be just CULLING OFF tbe tiling to boom theater-goinn in small places, particularly as the managers can afford to mako the prices very low. It is asserted that a syndicate has al ready been formed to build the theater boat and send it on its journey through canal and river to all parts ol the coun try, well equipped with a good company, hne scenery and an attractive show. "It is doubtful if the matter has progressed that far, but there seem to be few rea suns why the scheme could not be con ducted on a paying basis. Tbe idea is not original with the people here. To tbe Hussians is due tbe credit of thinking up the plan and carrying it to a succeessful issue. A St. Petersburg syndicate has had a great steamboat built, some 400 feet in length nnd 40 feet in width. The steamer is just about to start on a tour of the Volga, stopping at the principal towns on the way. Tbe Kussian authorities, usually opposed to all innovations, have sanctioned the scheme and as many of the citiss and towns of the Volga and its navigable trib utaries are without theater),it is believed that the venture will prove a veritable gold mine to its projectors. The Russian floating play house is so constructed tbnt an audience of 1000 can be comfortably seated. A large mass of scenery is carried for the production of an extensive repertoire of Russian come dies and dramas and French operettas. The manager of the show is a Russian named Strafamoff, and to him was en ■9 it might be Its main pecu.iarity is a steady strain on tbo buttons of the coat, wbicb is always kept fastened tight when Mr. Cleveland appears in public. It Is the duty of every man on every oc casion to denounce big stomachs. There fore Mr. Cleveland must he toM that his stomach is too big, and that he ought to re duce it. He can reduce it by riding a bicycle, by taking long swims in cold salt wate r , by jogcing a mile and a half ot two miles be fore breakfast in n sweater, but above all he can reduce and ought to reduce it by decreasing and strictly limitine its supply of solids and liquids. Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Harrison. Mr. Tom Reed and others who ask for the country's admiration should remember that a big stomach means one of two things either that the nppetito is stronger than the in tellect ami nerves combined, or Ibat the owner of the big stomach wilfully and deliberately allows himself to grow into it monstrosity. No man was meant to have a big stomach, no man lias n right tO have one. The Heed. Harrison. Cleve land, McKinley stomachs would not get a sin_'!e vote by themselves . Whitney and Hill have stomachs such as men can vote tor with a clear conscience. is due lo a desire to keep his trousers out ol the wet. We do not share the belief of the Tribune that it is another proof of hit base subservience to England. It will he seen tbat in bis orJinary every day costume his trousers are not turned up: they bang free in all their nstural hide ousnsss, as the trou sers of an Aineri- Cleveland's hand is very broad, decid edly plump, each linger baing protected on the back by two little fat cishions. The bones ol the knuckles do not show. The hand is Kept constantly browned by its lishitig excursions, is a pretty mils truated the work of mapping all I he num berless ingenious details incident to a new venture of this kind. The quarters of the actors, actresses, superiuimaries, stage hands, orchestra, and all the crew are in the extreme bow of tbe vessel. The extreme stern is taken up with the machinery, which is of the lightest possible kind, so that its weight will not throw the bow into the air. All the fuel is carried under the body of the lbeaetr, which occupies tour-fifths of ihe entire length of the boat und all of its width. Krom tho lowest point of the orchestra to the root is fifty- feet. The stage is a trille less than thirty feet in width and all the scenery is let down from the flies. The wings are just wide enough to admit of the entrance and exit of the players. Of course, the scenic effects are limited by the lack of room, but a much smoother performance can be given than in the meagerly equipped theater of the small town. The players are not fagged out by a tiresome journey or made unlit for first class work by the fare of indifferently conducted hotels. If such a boat were built by a syndicate here its construction would necessarily be based upon tne requirements of the large canals. Using tbo stern paddle wheel it would be possible to construct a boat of great beam and length, yet one which draws comparatlively little water. Such a boat could make a tour of hun dreds of towns and at the end of the sea son would not have visited half] the places made possible by the great rivers and canals and lakes of the country. The tield would almost be as broad us that open to companies which travel from place to place by rail. Ail the bast playing towns from a tbe- THE RUSSIAN THEATER BOAT atrical standpoint are those whicb have a water-Iront, as the visiting and money spending population of such a place is always larger than in the strictly inland towns. Witb a first-class compuny, such a boat could, it is argued, be kept busy form one year I end to another, and by a judicious change of productions keep on making the rounds of the country to an unending How of box office receipts. Starting flora New York audi a vessel could make a trip up alung the north shore of Long Island sound, stopping at the towns on the Connecticut and Rhode Island coast. Without piercing the Xew England country, the boat could steam back to Xew York und after doing New ark and near-by New Jersey towns, could steam up the Hudson, stopping at the various places up to Albany aud Troy. From Albany to iiuffalu the Erie canal can be used, and once in the lakes it would take a month to muke all tbe stop ping places before Chicago could be reached, down at the foot ol Luke Mich igan. Wben the Hennepin canal, now in pro cess of construction, is completed it will lie an easy matter to get by bout from Chicago through the Illinois river to the Mississippi river. Once in that river the well -equipped theater boat could do big business. The river, with its countless navigable tributaries, could keep a whole fleet of theater boats busy tor a season. It would be an almost endless task to name tbe towns of all sizes which could be stopped at from the Minnesola cities down to New Orleans. Down the gulf the many Texas rivers can be easily reached, all fringed with towns which would be gold mines to good shows. Die principal rivers are the Ra blne. Trinity, Brazos, Colorado and Rio Grande. This is merely an outline of what a well-equipped theater boat could do in this country. The men who are lirst in the field will probably reap the rich har vest. Her Inconsistency "I'm sorry," she said gently, "tbat I cannot he ail that yon wish in your life. But I will always think of you as a very dear friend." "Thank you." he said. "And if there is any way I can ever as sist you by advice or endeavor do not hesitate to call on me." "That's downright kind of yon," he replied, greatly relieved, "You can help me." How?" "You see, so long as you have declined tube mine, I thought I'd propos? to Miss Binkins. and If you'll see ber and put in a good word for me, you know—" And that's why she jumped up and went away huf'y, and vowed she'd never speak to nim nguin as long as she lived. —Washington Star.

Roll ia cslebrated, among other things, as having assisted Abraham Lin coln in the construction of the flatboat witb which tbe tall Kentuckian made bis first trip from Salem, 111., to.New Or leans, in 1831. "I knew bini when he was 22 years old," said Mr. Roll. "He came down hero to Sangamontown and worked in the timber building a flatboat for Orfutt <fc Greene, who w ere'merchants and shippers. San, garaontown was then quite a place. There were two stores, a steam sawmill and a grist mill, a tavern and a carding mill. I have seen iifry horses hitchod there of a Saturday [afternoon. Now there is not a stick to mark tbe place. Tbe roads are cut out, so you can't get to It without go ing across the fields. 'They built the boat up there because there was better limber, and were going to take it down and load at Petersburg. Charles Broudwall bad a sawmill at San gamontown and Lincoln was there boss ing tbe job. i came along aud wanted work, and he hired me, anil I made the pins for the boat. We launched her there, and she got a good deal of water in her. and we got her uown as far as Salem dam, and there she stuck, witb her bow over tbe dam. And Lincoln bored a hole in the bottom of the boat, and let the wa ter out. Looks like a funny way to get water out of a boat, to bore a hole in the bottom, but if the bottom is sticking out in the air. it is all right, I guess. "Lincoln was an awful clumsy-looking man at that time. He wore a homespun suit of clothes and a big puir of cowhide boots, with his trousers strapped duwn under them, as was the custom of that day, to keep them from crawling up his legs. And his coat was a roundabout, and when he stooped over his work we could see about four inches of his suspen ders. He bad on an old slouch wool hat. He was getting $15 a month from Orfutt ib Greene at that time. "After we got the flatboat launched wo went out in the timber and found a good fee, and made a canoe. John Sea man and Walter Carman were along, and tbey wanted to have the lirst ride in tbe canoe, and they jumped in, and the water was up very bigb and swift, and they tipped over and were in danger of drowning. The whole bottom was over- Sowed,and there was a big elm tree stand- 1 ing about a hundred feet from the shore, with its branches in the water, und Lin coln called to tbem to swim to the tree and hold on there till we could get tbem. I Ho they caught the brandies and got np I in the tree. It was in March and the water was very cold. So we got a log and tied a rope to it, and James Doyle tried to get on the log and get to them, but the logHuined over witb him and lie bad to get into the tree with the other two. "Then wo pulled the log ashore and Lincoln got astride of it, and the the rest ol us paid out the rope and let him down toward the tree, and be got to tbem and took them off and brought them ashore. "After that he went on and loaded bis boat with corn at Petersburg and went down the river to New Orleans. I don't know how lie got baok. but I bave an idea he walked back,though be may have come back by steamboat. He worked for awhile for Orfutt & Greene, in their store nt Salem, and then he bougut it out, and afterwards lie sold it and came here to Springfield and went to practicing law. "Ail the time he was running the store he had been shilling law. He would walk up here to Springfield, twenty miles, und borrow books from Major Stuart, and read them and bring them buck. He didn't seem to be much of a speaker, but it seemed he could do wbutever ho started to do. "1 had come up nere to Springhalt! as soon as I got through the job on the flat boat and was working at the plastering trade when lie moved up here. One time I remember I saw bim out here on the Salem road walking along und reading one book, with another under his arm. He got tired and sat down on a log to rest. And while he rested he went on reading. "I put my money in land as fast as I made it and was worth a good deal of money. Lincoln and I were always good friends. One time Tom Lewis and I were standing and talking on the street and Tom said: 'John,, why don't you run for some oftice? You've got so many tenants you could make them elect you.' And I said I didn't want no oftice till Abe Lincoln was elected president of the United States, and then 1 would expect him to give me an office because I had worked with him un the iiatboat. And Lincoln came along just then—it was long before he had ever been mentioned for president, and Tom tola him what I had said. And Lincoln laughed and said when be got lo be president he would give me an office. "So I was tha lirst man he over prom ised an office to, but I,u* v ;r got it. Oh yes, I guess he would have given it to me, but I was making more money then than any office. I didn't want any. " I remember one time in a speech ha made at the courthouse, that time be said the country could not live half slave and half free, he suid we were all slaves one time or another but that white men could make themselves true and the negroes could not. He said: "There is my old friend John Roll. He used to be a slave out he has made himself a free, and I used to be a slave, and now I am so free tbat tbey let me practice law.'
