In former jears fishing for sturgeon has not been Tcry profitable, as the meat did not bring ft large price; but hut ear the EJv brothers, of Hadbmc, learned the secret of pickling the spawn, after ishich it brings a, big price. It is used in the New York jstaurants for caviar. These men haie sever;', nets in Cheater Heach, yhich catch from j,n& to three fish per net n-ght-ly, and as tfc-Spawn brings from iS to $15 for each fob it makes a retauneratu e "basinet. After being pickled the cpaivn is almost black, and one large fish will furnish a-pkkle keg full. When a fish is found In the net it is drawn alongside of the boat and a hitch taken around Its tail with a strong rope, when it is towed ashore and tied to a stake until wanted. The fccat brings from 6 to 10 cents per pound. m w o tm Y"' I -V-4 tQ CALENDAR Gay.efyjfcis Beached Its Zenith at the Resorts. WASHINGTON DEADLY DULL Tli jSIaiTlnsrii Tpmorroiv Evening of .MIkm Hills ami Mr. O'Neill All Society Talking of the Belmont Venetian Fete de Xult at Newport Other Topic. Never since the creation of the social world has there been given an enter tainment like unto that just achieved by the Belmonts, at Newport no matter what folks say about fiere being noth ing new under the sun. The invitations tent out were for a "Venetian fete de nuit," which, to the ordinary mind, suggests moonlight, and plenty of it; mysteriously gliding gon dolas, Italian love songs and," possibly, stilettos. But, what's in a name? Those bidden knew their hosts far too well to do them the injustice of suppos ing, they wpuld content themselves by simply doing what was expected of them, llienefore, they took it as a matter ot course that tho evening's pleasure was arranged on ti strictly American basis, aud that even the moonlight had been eliminated by an electric plant that made the grounds of Gray Crag Park as bright as day and twice as picturesque. Then, too, there was an electrical car ropsel. or merry-go-round, on which so ciety (fames and maids emula'.cd the equestrian feats of the men and plucked rich prices with Uieir lances, just as gamins at the country fair stab with their poniards at the reluctant rings which win the guerdon of another ride. But the merry-go-round was only part of the gay frolic. There was a cake walk, participated in by fast-black ne groes and negresses, who footed their most fantastic measures to win the ap plause of the spirited company. Tlien followed all the attractions of a country fair fakirs crving their wares and nostrums, rogues for a night ply ing their beguiling trade tricks, and for tune tellers dipping into all sorts of fu tures for those who desired to try their luck In the bright beyond. Led by Mrs. Belmont, the belles and "beaux heard what the fortune tellers had to say of what was in store for them. More than this, there was a "Wild West Show." with whooping Indians and pistol ing, lariating cowboys, the "Deadwood Coach" hold-up and the rough riding feats of the frontier. But this was not enough. Down from New York came Manager Edward E. Rice, escorting Alice Atherton, whose gowns were the wonder and admiration of the folk of the social swim, and whose specialties so pleased the eye and car that there was recall after recall, Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish and Mrs. Hermann Oel riebs, who were assisting Mrs. Belmont in the entertainment, leading the applause. All this time two bands played on the lawns, and Narragansett Bay was all aflame with a pyrotechnic display. From all the nearby Islands in the bay, and from many boats anchored off the shore, the fireworks, the rockets and the bombs "flamed and flickered on the night." Of course, there was banqueting, and the frolic lasted long. . Then when the guests were ready to give over the funmaklng they found that all their coachmen and equippages had been dismissed, and that in their places were lumbering van filled with rye straw. So guests and participants bundled in and enjoyed an old-fashioned "straw ride." And now It is ail over, Newport will have something to talk about forever, and a day. If the reported visit to this country of H: TL H. of Wales is not a rumor bcrn of such stuff as dreams are made of, this is going to be a particularly mad world, my masters, when society gets him in charge. It looks as if a benignant fate had sent that pair of fledgling princes over here for the express purpose of giv ing society something to practice its hos pitaiitv on, so as to train it properly for the reception of the illustrious personage who will most any day be king of Great Britain and emperor of India it really and truly does. And II. B- H. will enjoy himself Immensely, and give his enter tainers the solid satisfaction of knowing they are getting some sort of apprecia tion for their pains. Which is not always the case. The first time the Prince of Wales came to see us he was a slender youth, shy almost to awkwardness and apparentlv hopelessly addicted to blush ing. Oh, the changes of time! He went home honestly delighted and has kept the memory of our hofcpitallty so green In his Heart all these years that nowa days he never fails to say to the Ameri cans he meets that his visit to this coun try is one-of the pleasantest recollections of his youth. Among the honors raid his royal high ness during his stay in Washington was a magnificent reception given at the White House by President Buchanan and his handsome niece. Miss Harriet Lane, now Mrs. Johnston, who. Incidentally, was recently received by Queen Victoria at Windsor, and "by the Prince and Prin cess of "Wales at their house in London. That same night, or perhaps it was some other night it is such a long way back that .nobody is ejected to remem berthe prince was treated to a display of firewtorks in the Monument Lot. Ac cording to a reliable citizen, who expects to join the Oldest Inhabitants Associa tion next year, the royal guest admitted that he had never seen the like of the set pieces nor heard anything to beat the band, though, being a royal guest, he doubtless did not word It just that way. The nowlyjacquired honors of Mrs. George N. Curzon, -formerly -Miss Mary Leiter, of this cCty, seem very real now that "Ldtters from the Pecple" Shave found their vray into print, asking just whait the tle tw211 toe, af a iwoman who Is about to do Sier share of ruling toiUions of subjects In that far-away, Orlen'tal East, that used to belong to the great Moguls. In the firs"t flush of triumph some&'tfdy said that, as Mr. Curzon was to be the viceroy. Oils nvife wouM naturally be the vice-reine. Then, some other ibody said she wouldn'it. Then, the fewib bod ies decided to sufcmft -tfc arbitration and the decrsion -was given iha,t both were equ'a'ly -wrong as todies often aTe. "Should Mr. Curzon," saM iflre journal istic umpire "succeed tthe Earl of Elgin he would, in truth, be ithe vice-reine, rep resenting as he would, "the queen. It is possible that Mrs. Curzon w'ould not only rule -with her huayand, ibut she might rule him. But, officially, she can never be vice-reine." That seems luJcid enough. Nobody can doubt any longer iwhat (Mrs. Curzon Tvill not be If Mr. Curzon Is made viceroy of India, but what her friends just now would particularly like to know, -for the satisfaction of talking It over, is what title she is -going to have iwhen ttfat evemt takes place? z2 Everybody has known all along about Hobson's choice, but now the time has come when we seem to have nb choice but Hobson. In the nature of thlngs( he cannot go on forever submitting to ova tions at every step. Rhapsodic matrons must cease from endowing him with searfnins and flairs at some time or another, and If it b"e time that the heror' has a sweetheart waiting -for him in the West, she, for one, must be glad when the time comes for him to get out of the way of young ladies who like to express their palriotIsm.Jn .kisses, and go Jjack to raising ships" "instead of demonstra tion. , SJM" Mr. and Mrs'. AbneVMeKIhIeyand Miss Mabel McKJnlcy, who have been for tire past week tis guests of Mr. and Mrs. I. V. Brokaw, at Elberon, made a brief visit Tuesday to Seabright, near by. The lat ter resort is nlso'anticipatlng "a week's visit" from aha President and Mrs- Mc lvinley, which makes about the s:xth on- gugemeni maue ior tne uisurniruisncii couple without their knowledge for the month of August, and -which they ere -not keeping righfalong". v "" Miss Virginia Fair is undoubtedly out of the season's dances nt Newport, which is very much ito be regretted, .as she is one of 'the most vivacious of the younger set. She is, though, ahle to get about with a crutch in one hand and a cane in the other, with great labor and some evident pain. A sprained ankle, the result of a falj on the hard stone floor of the -tennis court ut the Casino, is the cause of It all. Quite a number of well-known people of Washington are spending the Summer In the Blue Ridge Mountains at the Shenandoah Hotel, overlooking the beau tiful river of that name, and a little more than a mile from the mouth of that stream, near to Harper's Ferry.

' No cooking Is required and if one wants a hot mush, it can be Insantly prepared "by pouring hot milk on Grape-Nuts.

Pasteur, show that earth retains instead of destroying the germs of disease contained in a body, and that in some degt'ee it will vitiate its surround in-js. Since Hannibal's army was decimated by effluvia from an ancient graveyard he unwittingly demolished, history has repeated itself. The cholera in London in 1S51 was ascribed to the upturning of the earth where victims of a previous plague had been buried. The French Academr of Medicine lo cated the origin of the disease of the lungs and the throat in putrid emanations from the Parisian cemetery, Pere la Chase, Of the older churchyards of Paris, once honeycombed with graves, that of the 1 nocents is remarkable. Established on the present site of the market called "Halles Centrales," it bred pestilence for centuries without hindrance. Finally it became notorious as a nuisance, so that It had to be abolished. Innumerable skel etons were unceremoniously carted to Catacombs on April 7, 17S6. Lyon Playfair asserts that Roman fever originates not in the Pontine Marshes, but in decaying , hofiet e millions buried in .the Eter- ! nal City. Dr. Domingo Fretre found In cemeteries of Rio Janeiro myriads of mi crobes in corpses, identical with those i persons stricken wi.h yellow fever a year after burial. Drainage from cemeteries in Philadel phia has polluted water of the Fairmount reservoir. The Centennial dysentery of 1S76 has been attributed to this cause. A con tinued prevalence of typhoid fever In this sparsely-inhabited city must be ascribed to the same cause. Mortality by yellow fever was twice as large in portions of New Orleans where larse cemeteries are located as elsewhere. -. rhn f. . ,,, M . a. In Cuba this plague rages almost con- tinually. Bodies of the victims ot disease and Spanish cruelty, estimated to num- ber 200,000, are Inadequatelv protected against high temperature and moisture; Tl eJna"aiti0n,iilre meJ?Ce .OUr S01- uito i.iuig icmuiu iiiuii opjinisn guns. American officers ihould be delegated to destroy these bodies before they do harm. The Austrian government permits the de struction of those who have fallen on the field of battle by the erection of pyres, a practice which ought to be made ob'.I- gatory on the military authorities of all i nine dajs and Athens and Alexandria in faur clvllized nations. Over a hundred thou- ! tcen days. Communication with South American sand bodies of Napoleon's army of Inva sion were cremated in 1S12 by Russians. More men died before Sebastopol by in haling miasma of putrified bodies than were killed by the enemy. Some 40,000 corpses poisoned the air after the battle of Sedan, until Inhabitants of adjacent Belgian villages prevailed on their gov ernment to appoint in 1S71 an officer to re lieve the distress. By 5aturating them with naphtha, he succeeded in burning S00 bodies In an hour, until all were con sumed. Long experience In the East In dies has shown that danger increases with moist heat. Neither burial nor dis infectants can sufficiently protect th health of our army.

Graves not less than 10 feet deep snould be located in dry. porous soil only. Precautions like these would lessen tho danger, but no method other than, crema tion will absolutely destroy all germs al sickness in a cast-on body none by which, without giving offense. It can swiftly be converted Into ashes. Our veneration for Alexander Hamil ton did not originate with his handsome memorial in Trinity churchyard; no stat ue in Westminster Abbey can express the love Englishmen cherish for Gladstone. Discoverers of the hidden powers of na ture, composers of our sweet melodies, teachers of morals and religion ned no lettered stones to remind posterity o their existence. Since thirty years ago cremation has been re-introduced In civilized communi ties, many thousand bodies have thus been disposed of. including those of Haas von Bulow. George du Maurier, Jaeob Moleschott, F. Gregorovius and Anton Se'dl. Instead of condemning- their mem ory because they refused to allow their corpses to become offensive, let us foHew their noble example and help to ramav one of the most odious stains on our civilization. Then we may hopo soma day to enjoy the pleasures of life with out fear of the dead. Lons Distance 3IaZl. (From the Xew Tork Times.)
