prlatlon to repair the same Tho mall
comes onco a week by boat f tho weather
permits which It docs not always do Tho
majority of strangers who land on Hat
tcras reef do M unwillingly throuah ship
wreck The beach below the light Is
strewn with wreckage of all descriptions
from n nearly cntlro hull of a vcmcI to
barrels cables nnd cocoanuts From the
malidand tho roof can bo reached only by
embarking on one of tho little flsh boata
ninnlng from Ellzaboth City or Now
Berne It Is a twelve hours tsall under
thu most farorablo clrcumstanccs but tho
trip generally takes an cntlro day and
night A boat man unacquainted with
shoals would mako sad work of a Journey
across thu sound but tho natlro fishermen
wind about through tho tortuous channel
without orer onco grazing the bottom
THE FlSHErtMEK AT HOUR
Ilattcras reef is far from being a bare
sand beach All about tho llghthouso and
south of It stretches a dwarfed forest ot
live oak and holly trees broken by fresh
water ponds fragrant with water lilies
The woods nnd marshes nro enlivened
by tho songs ot innumerable mocking
birds and blackbirds bnt tho onjoyment
of wandering about Is somowhat marred
by tho presence ot rattlesnakes nnd cop
perheads In these woods is tho vTllago of
Trent tho homo of tho fishermen Tho
houses are scattered along tho sandy
roads which wind hither nnd thither
through tho woods A sqnoro of sand In
closed by a rough low fence and fur
nished with n well nnd a few rose bushes
which seem to find life very hnrd forms
tho front ynrd Tho back yard Is gener
ally occupied by garden soss upon the
growth of which much pains oro bestowed
These kltchon gardens fared badly this
year A high tide which occurred re
cently flooded a great many of them nnd
ruined them
Tho natives aro honest kindly dis
posed reticent and loisurc loving When
asked how pcoplo managed to Hvo on so
barren a spot ono of tho flshormen replied
thntthey throvo by fleecing strangers
and that when thcro were no strangers
they turned to fleecing ono another Thcro
Is no court no Jail no physician and no
regular minister ot tho gospel on tho reef
Crime Is unknown and liquor Is prohib
ited Some of tho fishermen howover nro
wont to make merry when they go to
Kllzabeth City bnt this osido tho morals
of tho Ilattcras people are quite unlra
IKtachablc Many nl tho men belong to n
sort ot n rcllglo soclnl club and aro known
as Bright Jewels If a visit is mado out
of Uio Ashing season ono may find reason
to complain ot tho dishes served up at
dinner On several consecutive days a
visitors dtnnor consisted ot hot biscuit
boiled cabbago and honey It Is not Im
proved by tho addition of tho famous or
Infamous yntipon or black drink of the
Carollmu which is a common boverago
here Every houscholdor makes his own
yunpon tea A largo holo Is dug In the
sand Into which Is thrown a layer ot
twigs of tho yaupon bush Noxt comes a
layer of hot stones thon mora yaupon
twigs and moro stones and so on until the
hole is filled The holt charred leaves and
stems aro Anally taken out and placed in
barrels nnd tho tea Is ready for uoo
a rom oiHE FACTOUV
Tho most considerable event which has
taken place at Ilattcras for n long tlmo
has been tho establishment of a porpolso
factory by some Wilmington capitalists
As a regularly organized industry tho
business Is new to tho country Tho fish
ermen caught more or less porpolso ovory
winter but have novor dono any moro
than to try out from tholr blubber a small
quantity of oil Tho now company how
over has purcliased special machinery
and imported sklllod workmen from Eu
rope and proposes to make leather oil
and fertilizers No leather has been
placed on tho market thus far That
from young individuals has a curious
pile llko velvet und is very beautiful It
may perhaps bo used in upholstering in
plnco of plush than which it would be far
moro durable Tho porpolso appear off
the beach nearly ovory day and the fish
ery Is prosecuted daily unless tho sea is
running too high Only tho strongest not
will hold porpoises and when frightened
they will dart about with inconceivable
rapidity and striko against tho nets with
great force Tboy are first Impounded in
a very large net and then afterward
brought to tbe beach by a sweep seine
made ot strong twlno
It Is a strange and exciting scono when
sbctyor eighty of theso powerful crea
tures each eight or nine feet long are
being pulled In toward tho beach They
struggle desperately and make a continual
piping sound llko tho squealing of rats
Many become- ontanglod In tho not nnd
are Browned but tho majority have to bo
killed after they aro drawn out of tho
water Although tho fishermen persist in
calling them flsh thoy aro of course true
mllk glvlng mammalia Tho milk Is not
unpalatable but very rich and with a
flavor llkeeocoanut milk Although the
winter has been very unfavorable a largo
number of porpoises have been taken
Tho season Is now Just closed Tho flsherr
men stay In tholr camp on tho beach
every day from dawn until sunset
whether any flsh appear or not They
aro warned of tholr npproach by splos
htatloncd half h mile north and south of
the camp The men say that tho fishery
Is no fun which means that It Is ex
ceedingly laborious Now York Times

ANECDOTES OF JOHN RANDOLPH
Tito New Anecdote of the Cccentrlo
Virginian Crltlclam of Lnrjgitngo
Randolphs fastidiousness ns to the uso
ot the English and the proper application
of English words Is a matter ot history It
happened thnt at a social gathering a
young gentleman who hod been attached
to some legation abroad made use of tho
word classify In n senso that oxcltcd tho
disapproval of Mr Randolph Ho was
quick to resent it
It is extremely unpleasant said he
to hear careless or ignorant persons de
basing tho languago by a wrong applica
tion of words or phrases Now sir you
have used tho word classify lu a connec
tion that U entirely wrong
Tho young nttache dreadfully mortified
colored deeply and retired from the con
versation There chanced to bo present a
Mr Harris a member of tho Richmond
bar and a rclatlvo of the victim Ho took
up tho cudgels ot defense
Really Mr Randolph ho said you
aro too hard on my young kinsman 1
think that his application of tho word was
perfectly correct and proper
Yon think retorted Randolph I
dont bellovo you know the meaning of
tho word Pray sir what Is tho meaning
of classify
WelL returned Mr Harris
I dont know that I con glvo
a technical definition of tho word but I
can Illustrate Its meaning For Instance I
can classify tho books of your liabrary oj
tho slzo ot tho volumes or I can classify
tho members of tho Richmond bar by tho
initial letter of their names
I thought so said Randolph you
know nothing about it Suppose I should
classify as you term It tho books of my
liabrary by tho size of tho volumes a
pretty mbtturo I should make Or sup
pose I should classify here a sneer the
members of tho Richmond bar by tho ini
tial letters of their names Let us seel
Thoros Mr Hoggs hod stand nt tho head
of tho list God forbidl Theres Mr
Wlckham hod stand at the foot of it n
most Improper placo for hlml Theres
yourself Harris II lit Tho Greeks es
teemed U no letter Wed placo you no
where
Tho other anecdote Is oven moro un
pleasant Ono day Randolph was attacked
with a sudden fatntness nnd Immediately
inado up his mind that ho was nbout to
dlo Accordingly ho despatched his
faithful attendant Juba with orders to
bring him a clergyman Juba dlllgont
though ho was succeeded only In finding
an itinerant preacher zealous enough but
very Illiterate Randolph received tho
reverend gentleman with great urbanity
and offered him refreshments After
theso had been partaken of ho lnvltod his
guest to read tho Bible to him The
preacher consented and proceeded at
onco to suit the action to tho word Di
rectly ho mispronounced a word
I bog your pardon exclaimed tho sago
of Roanoko you pronounco that word
wrong Tho proper pronounclatlon is
Tho parson corrected himself apologized
and proceeded with tho lecture Every
ono knows how frequently tho samo word
is repeated in tho Bibical text Directly
tho unlucky word again occurred
I told you said Randolph with
asperity that you mispronounced that
word and you linvo dono it again
Tho clerical gontleman again mndo due
correction apologized and proceoded
Randolph watched nnd directly tho un
happy word was nbout to turn up onco
moro
Stopl screamed ho In his high troblo
stop lay osido tho book Id rntlior go to

A groat many consider tho work ot keep
ing run of cars owned by a railroad com
pany a stupendous task and marvel at the

empty cars on our own and other lines

It Is often necessary to locate a car which
slips out of tho record nnd for that pur
poso a lost car agont Is regularly cm
ployed Ho begins at tho beginning to
mako It plain ascertains whoro tho car
started from originally and how billed its
destination nnd contents nnd follows it
up till run down It Is almost an Impossi
bility to loso a car Thoy can not get away
The distribution of empty cars Is a task
which requires quick thought a thorough
